Meaning of Numbers: The Number 154

The possible meaning of the number 154 is derived from the occurrence of certain words in the Bible's original languages.

The Greek word basileia, Strong's Concordance #G932, is recorded in 154 Greek New Testament verses. It is recorded the most in Matthew (56 times) followed by Luke (46) and then Mark (21). The word, which means rule, royalty, realm or dominion, is usually translated as "kingdom" in the King James.

The Kingdom of God, which Matthew calls the Kingdom of Heaven, is the rule and governance of the Godhead over all things. The devil, at the present time, is allowed to deceive the whole world and rule it like a prince (Ephesians 2;1 - 2, 6:12, 2Corinthians 4:3 - 4).

At the second coming of Christ, however, the Lord will completely remove Satan's influence over the earth. Jesus will assume earth's throne as "King of Kings and Lord of Lords" (Revelation 19:16) which will usher in his millennial reign.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom (basileia) of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom (basileia) of heaven (Matthew 5:19, KJV).

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom (basileia) of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night (Revelation 12:10, KJV).

Appearances of Number One Hundred Fifty-Four

The Greek word poreuomai, Strong's Concordance #G4198, is found 154 times in 147 Greek New Testament verses. It is found the most in Luke (50 times) followed by Acts (38) and then John (16). The word, which means "to traverse," is usually translated as "go," "departed" or "went" in the King James New Testament.

For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go (poreuomai), and he goeth (poreuomai); and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it (Matthew 8:9, KJV).

For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed (poreuomai) unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia (2Timothy 4:10, KJV).

Zion and Number 154

The Hebrew word tsiyon, Strong's #H6726, is recorded 154 times in 154 Hebrew Old Testament verses. It is found the most in the book of Isaiah (47 times) followed by the Psalms (38) and then Jeremiah (17). The word, which means "parched place," is translated as the name "Zion" in the King James.

Zion originally referred to a fortified raised area that was located in the southern part of the city of Jebus.

After David conquered Jebus and renamed it Jerusalem, the term Zion referenced the entire area he took (the original city of David). Zion would later be used as a generic reference to Jerusalem regardless of its size (Isaiah 2:3, 3:16, Jeremiah 26:18, Amos 1:2, 6:1, Matthew 21:5). It also was utilized as a synonym for the nation of Israel as a whole (Isaiah 1:27, Romans 11:26).

Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion (tsiyon): the same is the city of David (2Samuel 5:7, KJV).

Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the city of David, which is Zion (tsiyon) (1Kings 8:1, KJV).

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion (tsiyon) shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem (Isaiah 2:3, KJV).
