Baptism & The Number 777
(2 minute read)
"One week later on January 4, just before midnight – day 777 since inspiring my July 14, 2022 visit to Auschwitz – I was about to make another interesting discovery.
Some months earlier, I had worked out that there were exactly 500 days between my first and third proposed baptisms that God had inspired – neither of which I was actually baptised on! (February 18, 2021 – July 3, 2022). This seemed somewhat unusual to me at the time, but I couldn’t figure out what it meant, so just put it aside for the meantime.
Fast forward to the early hours of January 5, 2023, and I made an interesting discovery! Because the number 777 had been on my mind lately, I wondered what date it would be on day 777 since my first proposed baptism. Actually, my first thought was what date it would be exactly 777 days since my first proposed baptism, but day 777 turned out to be more interesting!
It turned out that day 777 since my first proposed baptism on February 18, 2021, was April 5, 2023, which also happened to be the 14th of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, otherwise known as Passover! This is the very day that many people believe that Jesus was crucified!
What is interesting about that is that we are baptised into Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. So to have day 777 falling on the potential date of His crucifixion seems to be more than a coincidence!
However, the coincidences didn’t end there!
One of the potential dates for Christ’s resurrection is April 5, 33 A.D. (Crucifixion on April 3, 33 A.D.). That means that not only is April 5, 2023 the potential date of Christ’s crucifixion in the Hebrew calendar, but it is also the date of His resurrection in the Gregorian calendar! And that is the perfect image of baptism! Death, burial and resurrection on day 777 since my first proposed baptism!
Immersion in water represents His death and burial, and coming up out of the water represents His resurrection. And all represented on April 5, 2023.
Not that God actually inspired me to get baptised on April 5, but it is an interesting set of coincidences nevertheless. But I’ll let the reader decide on that."
