Seven Times Pure
The number seven in scripture indicates a work that is completed and it has to do with enjoying the benefits of a job well done (Genesis 2:1-3).
When it comes to the topic of purity, and particularly a pure, (unmixed) singleness of heart, the theme of “seven times” enters the picture.
There is also a tie in with the sevens related to the purification of the hearts of the churches, the heavens, and the earth in the Book of Revelation in association with those Seven Eyes of the Seven Spirits of God we mentioned previously, that search the earth for the heart that is perfectly set toward Him.
The search is for singularity of focus.
All the words of the LORD are pure words, like silver tried in an earthen furnace, purified seven times (Psalm 12:6).
But He knows the pathway that I am following. When He has tried me (examined and assayed), I will proceed forth as gold (Job 23:10).
In the symbolism of the cleansing of a leper the priest was to take the blood and sprinkle it on the person seven times. Leprosy is symbolic of an unclean (mixed, tainted) spirit;
And he will sprinkle (the blood) on the one who is to be cleansed of leprosy seven times and then pronounce him clean... (Leviticus 14:7)
On the Day of Atonement each year, the High Priest would perform a ceremony symbolic of the spiritual re-polarization of the people of Israel with the energies of the LORD. In the realignment process, bringing the nation back at one again with God, the blood was sprinkled on the Ark of the Covenant, that place from which God’s voice would speak to the people, seven times for the cleansing and atonement;
And he will sprinkle the blood on it with his finger seven times, and this will cleanse it and restore it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel (Leviticus 16:19).
Part of the illustration we are given regarding Israel wandering in the wilderness has to do with the adjusting of their hearts out of a state of unbelief.
They needed to transition from the hearts they labored under as Egyptian slaves under Egyptian powers, including the spiritual filth of their ruling gods, to hearts that were purified exclusively to the voice and influence of the one and only LORD God.
Only in this way would they have the power of the Infinite God among them in sufficient majesty to terrify their seven enemies occupying the land of their promise, driving them out and overthrowing them as they first dispossessed, then possessed the land, in an act of exorcism against the idols and gods and spirits represented by them;
And remember all of the way which the LORD your God led you these forty years in the wilderness whose intent was to humble you (bring you into alignment with the power of My power), and to assess you like a refiner refines gold, to expose what was in your heart, whether you would listen to and treasure, guard as precious and watch carefully over the instructions and commissions of His voice, or whether you would not (Deuteronomy 8:2).
Did you notice the purposes of the wilderness wanderings?
It was all about a purification of the hearts of the people in relation to their polarization to the voice of God.
It was an assessing to see if they really would listen to His voice, because what they were about to do in dispossessing their enemies would require this kind of humble alignment of heart as in this alone is the channel for limitless power.
