The first division of time
The first natural division of time we find in the Bible is a day. The number seven marks this day.
"Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And by the beginning of the seventh day God finished His work which He had made. And He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it because on it He rested? from all His work which God had created and made." (Genesis 2:1-3)
When God ordained periods of rest and worship for Israel he marked them with the number seven. The seventh day is a weekly holy day. The seventh Hebrew month has special Biblical Feast days within it. The seventh year was deemed a year of rest for the land. Every seven times seven years (49) marked a very special period known as the year of Jubilee.
We see a law of numbers in various nature areas. For example, we can see a division of seven from the animal kingdom. For an animal such as a dog, who is obviously in animal kingdom (division 1), they are further classified as a verbtebrata, then as a Mammalia, then of the order of Carnivora, the family of Canidae, the genus of dog and a species of retriever. A seven-fold division from the plant kingdom for a Tea Rose (one division) would be in the kingdom of vegetables, sub-division of Phanerogamia, then a further division into Dicotyledon, Rosiflorae, Rosaciae, and finally a genus of rose.
The creation of vegetables
Life revolves around law and order for vegetables. For those plants that grow indoors, the number three prevails. For those plants that grow outside the number five is prevailing. Indian corn grains are almost always arranged in even numbers, but never an odd one!
The growth of leaves on a plant appear in a particular arrangement. Some leaves are alternately spaced while others are spaced opposite, while still others are arranged in a spiral pattern.
The creation of chemistry
Discoveries are constantly made in chemistry. Chemistry, unlike geology, does not have its theories consistently revamped by newer one. All substances are composed of combinations of a variety of elements. Elements are one of a class of substances that cannot be separated into simpler substances by chemical means. The way in which the elements are arranged may seem complex but there is a design behind it.
When magnetized all elements fall into 2 classes. There is a class that arranges itself in the direction of west and east and does so at 90 degree angles to the magnetic force lines. The other class arranges itself to align with our magnetic pole.
- Monads are elements which combine with one and only one atom. Elements that come together with 2 atoms of another substance are called Dyads. Those that combine with three atoms are Triads, etc.
Some of the most important elements are a multiple of either 4 or 7 (or very closely so). The atomic weight of iron (Chemical symbol: Fe) is 56 (7 x 8), silver's weight (Ag) is about 108 (4 x 27), copper's weight (Cu) is around 63 (7 x 9), carbon's weight (C) is 12 (3 x 4), mercury's weight (Hg) is 200 (4 x 50), etc.
Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements
The periodic table of the chemical elements is a tabular display of the 118 known elements. Although they were formerly arranged in the order of their atomic weights, the above table lists them by increasing atomic number, which is the count of protons found in the nucleus of the atom.
The creation of sound and music
Sound is a wave, an oscillation of pressure transmitted through the air (or other substance) within frequencies that are heard. Experiments have determined a fixed set of vibrations for each and every note. The following scale shows, for each note, the number of vibrations in possesses.

If one takes a look at the above table, one will notice the prominence of the number 11 and well as 7. The above scale also has a vibration range of 264.
The creation of colors
The vibrations of light cause color, just as the vibrations of air cause sound. There is a relation between the two, so that a particular color corresponds to a particular note in music. Hence, there are seven common colors seen by the naked eye that answer to the seven musical sounds. The number seven, in both music and color, is divided into the numbers three and four. There are three primary colors - red, green, and blue. The four secondary colors are orange, yellow, indigo, and violet. In English, a popular way of remembering all colors is to memorize the name "ROY G. BIV" for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
