Meaning of Numbers: The Number 145
The possible meaning of the number 145 in the Bible is derived primarily from the book of Psalms.
The first chapter of Mark contains exactly 45 verses (145). After Jesus heals a man with leprosy, in one of his first miracles, he warns him not to spread the news of his healing. The man's feelings, however, override his obedience to the Lord and he publishes the news of his healing far and wide. This act causes Christ a great deal of inconvenience.
But after leaving, he (the man healed of leprosy) began to proclaim it extensively and to spread the matter abroad, so that He (Jesus) was no longer able to enter the city openly, but stayed outside the city in desert places; and they came to Him from every region (Mark 1:45, HBFV).

A Biblical Sabbatical year ran from September 24 in 144 A.D. to September 14 in 145.

Number 145 and the Psalms
An important Biblical verse that refutes the notion that 100% of humanity will receive salvation is found in Psalm 145.
The Lord watches over all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy (Psalm 145:20, HBFV).
Psalm 145 also contains several comforting and encouraging verses that are especially helpful in a time of need.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion; slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works . . .
The Lord upholds all who fall and raises up all who are bowed down . . .
The Lord is righteous in all His ways and loving in all His works. The Lord is near unto all who call upon Him, unto all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry, and will save them. The Lord watches over all who love Him . . . (Verses 8, 9, 14, 17 - 20 of Psalm 145, HBFV).
