# Properties of the number 47

## Symbolism

• According to R. Allendy, this number represents "the evolution, 7, continuing in the eternal mechanism of the world, 40, by a personal effort and a fight - 4+7 = 11; 1+1 = 2".

• Forty seven is considered as being the number of the Law.

## General

• With the Cross, The Bishop wrote on the ground, during the dedication of a Church, 47 signs: 23 letters of the Latin alphabet from the North-West to the South-East, and 24 letters of the Greek alphabet from the North-East to the South-West.

• Forty seven names of Pharaoh are listed on the Tables of Saqqarah.

## Gematria

• It is the numerical value of the verse of the Genesis where it is written: And God saw that it was good.

• One day the Lord tells to Vassula that the new Name that he carried was Y H Sh W H. By using the gematria in "n", the numerical value of this name is 47 = 10+5+21+6+5. This Name of glory was given to Jesus, the innocent Victim, after his death. The Just to justify us becomes himself curse, since it is written: "Anyone hanged is accursed" (Ga 3,13). And "accursed" in Hebrew gives also 47 = 1+20+6+20.

• The psalm 47 is the first song of the divine Reign. It talks about the union of the nations as only one people to which unite the descendants of Abraham so as to rent the Eternal under only one chief, the Christ. The last word of this psalm is "climbed", numbering 47 = 14+16+12+5, like the Name of Jesus glorified Y H Sh W H = 47.

## Occurrence

• The name of Adam, the word leprosy and the verb to stone are used 47 times in the Bible.

• In the three synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) 47 times it is spoken about demons.

I've been seeing the number 47 for about a year now.. Its progressively gotten worse to where my friends and family have noticed it. Countless times a day I look at the clock and its 47 minutes on the hour. My battery is on 47% I sent something 47 minutes ago.. Everything. Its everywhere, and I honestly don't know why. I don't look for the number or think about it all day. It just shows up. I'm a big a fan of the late and great Capital STEEZ, Who also had some sort of fascination with the number 47. I'm 18 years old and I'm just a regular kid. Nothing crazy happens to me. Someone help please.

we are the chosen ones. There is nothing else to say except that- everything we do, everywhere we go, everybody we meet, everything is right for us. No matter what the circumstance is, but you can also use this number as a "tracking code" if you get good enough at decoding the "real" world. It is simply our guide.

NO we are not the chosen ones. . . . Read through my post from before "Confirmed, what you're all seeing is a form of ESP". I also advise you to learn energy. This will provide much clarity.

### The 47 Promises

by Send me a penny - 9/18/13 12:42 PM
One day while cleaning my home/office, i found a handful of coins that were mostly pennies. I asked myself these simple questions as i talked to myself while doing so. I said. Wow, that’s a lot of pennies. "i wonder how many pennies i would have if i had saved all my pennies all my life" i instantly knew the answer...I'd be rich... Then without thought i closed my hand over them pennies and said to myself "what would i do if i was rich??? All of a sudden i had the urge to right something down. I did not know it but a presence came over me and i started to cry these uncontrollable tears. Each sentence had a new cry and felt so great because i saw a vision of each promise as i wrote them down. I cried and wrote for exactly one (1) hour until the period came that promise number 47 was completed. It was finished and as i looked at them i became happy that they were here and that somehow i was blessed and that i would get the opportunity to bless and help so many people with a penny donation...The penny as i... more...

### Confirmed, what you're all seeing is a form or ESP

by pete747 - 7/02/13 10:36 PM
Guys, seeing the number 47 is just a form of ESP. . . You are not special or the chosen ones. Some people see energy as colors, some hear voices or get a gut feeling about things. Your energy is infinite and connected to everything. When you see or hear the number 47, this is your way of connecting to the energy that is connected to all things. This is "you" reaching into the unknown (beyond the 5 senses) to connect to what is all thing ever present. You are all echos of the first I AM which mean your are all creators of your own reality. Your God spark just behind the navel (solar plexus chakra) is proof. Next time you see the number 47, give an honest mental check in this area of your body, it will not lie.

This thread should no longer be about speculation about seeing number 47, what I'm telling you is FACT. I promise! Namaste

To Curious,
Well, it's tough to learn about them by your self. If you have the drive and go deep enough, you will learn them but it could take a really long time. I didn't really search out for the answers about subtle energies, but I just always knew the information would present itself when the time was right. I came across a few different teachers, they were interesting but they didn't really resonate to my lifestyle. Then I found Avatar Energy Master Institute (they are on the web, just Google it), and I knew this was what I was looking for. I'm not promoting them or any other school, I encourage you to find what fits you best. This was for me, but it's not for everyone. So, if you have an interest in this, give it a try. To learn these skills in a community of "like" minded souls is much more beneficial than learning them alone or from a book.

The final thing I'd like to add is this world doesn't need more dreamers or lightworkers who just hang out and sing songs about love an light or put all their faith in hope and what psychics and channels say, it needs more energy masters that actually DO things to heal the earth and citizens of humanity. I'm not a master yet, but I already know that I'm making a difference :) Namaste

### 47 the strange mystical number of the Universe ?

by Hal - 8/10/13 11:45 AM
I have also taken note of the number 47. My awareness of the number started in early 1980's when small cokes at fast food was 47 cents and the 747 plane was introduced. Like others it pops up everywhere for me. Like I turned 47 in 2000 or my wife thought she was 47 when she was 46 (math error) and she had to be 47 two years in a row.

Or the other week I visited IRS office to make my monthly payment. I have been doing it for a year and every time in the past the room is full and I have to wait an hour or more. Last week I went as usual and the room was empty. I noted the condition as very unusual pushed the button for my waiting room number. Number 407 popped out and I got instant service.

Indeed it is a strange number. I get impulses at 47 minutes past the hour, like look at my phone or pick up phone to call someone I am think about. only to be told that the called was thinking about me. Or I am sitting at a stoplight behind a car with 47 in the license plate number 9 times out of 10 it seems.

### The number 47

by Pablo - 8/09/13 4:29 PM
I first encountered the number 47 as a freshman in college in 1970. I would set the alarm for 7:00 A.M. but would fall back to sleep and wake up at 7:47. Over the years the only thing that has changed is that I see 47. I see it so frequently that it raises my curiosity about its significance. If I make an effort to find it, say on license plates, etc. it never shows up. But if I'm just going about my day, it shows up everywhere. I have been dealing with this for a very long time (I'm 62). My other favorite number is 28, which never shows up anywhere. In May I was visiting Massachusets (I live in CA) where it all started. While driving along with a friend, I was atracted to the plates on two cars side by side in front of me. The ending numbers on each plate were 28 and 47 respectively. I made a comment to my friend about these numbers and moved on. The following morning my friend called me very disgusted, because he had intended to buy a "pick four" lottery ticket, but got distracted: and the numbers were 2847. That has been my closest brush with luck and these numbers. This is the first in all time in all these years, that I have tried to inquire about this number. Any more ideas?

### Synchronicities

by Jim - 7/28/13 10:53 AM
I first started noticing 47 when I was about 15yo. Like some of you it manifested in the clocks, originally, then showing up on receipts, license plates, tv and movies...etc. It was unusual, but by no means extraordinary, just seemed coincidental. However, shortly after meeting my future wife I began to look further into this phenomenon personally. Both of us began to experience more random 47's, almost as if by converging we multiplied our 47 sightings. Ok, just gonna list a handful of our shared 47's.

1. my mother and my wife's father were born in 1947.
2. my wife's parents' anniversary is april 7(4/7).
3. my wife's twin siblings were born on april 7(4/7).
4. our first born child...you guessed it, april 7(4/7).
5. my all-time favorite show is Star Trek the next gen, of which my favorite episode is the "inner-light". Which was inspired by a song created by my most loved beatle, george harrison, who was inspired to write the song, inner light from the 47th verse of the tao te ching.

### I am iranian and muslim& i see 47 Frequently

by narges - 4/09/13 8:30 PM
I think is very important message.
But I do not know exactly what it is?
I searched for it in English.
I was surprised that others had similar experiences
I see this number approximately since 6 months. After a romantic experience. And while I'm waiting
I am waiting for God
I'm sure this number is going to say something, but what?
Earlier I was afraid that number of unusual occurrences, but then I had the good sense
I think 47 is connected to a relationship with God.

I think it's REALLY crazy that we all kind of started experiencing all of these after a romantic experience. Mine was kind of life changing, in a few ways, but for nonromantic reasons. Anyways, I think the relationship that I had with this person caused me to wake up, or at least played a major role in it. I also see the number 7 on its own A LOT, amongst some others. I know that God has been communicating with me, but I have also encountered some ungodly beings

### in need of understanding

by robyn - 5/22/13 9:34 AM
So I dreamth of the numbers 47,3 last night and after reading some of the comments I freaked a bit just because a lot of it made sense and that's a bit scary for me.....also I've always seen the numbers 23 and 3:14 and I always get a spiritual feeling from these number as if I'm pose to be doing something important but rather then exploring what that might be I tend to ignore it because I don't know if I'm ready to take on the burden I find that everything that happen to me isnt just fate but exactly what was intend to be and I find as much as I run from myself I somehow come back to it and I feel like I've been chosen to do something and I don't know what or have anyone to talk to that understands and I just want to reassure myself that I'm not the only one who feels like this...please comment

### This is what 47 means according to my higher Self

by Pete - 6/27/12 9:45 AM
It's time I write about the number 47. I've been seeing this number often for the past 3 years, or ever since my awakening. I have done a lot of research on this but today I think I know what it means. I believe it's a sign from the divine Self or God. It's a reminder that we are God and we can manifest anything in our hearts. Our own intentions are the key here. This number symbolizes what we can manifest and what ever is in our hearts is how it materializes. I tend to feel highly spiritual when I'm day dreaming, I sense my 3rd eye activating when my mind is in no mans land like sometimes at work, on my morning commute, or driving a car. This number has popped up with a divine sense of purpose. I'm having trouble articulating what this really is but for me, there's lots of love within, the number 47 is like a supercharger that is telling me first, I'm on the right path in accordance to my divine plan created before I incarnated here. And the second (more important), what's in my heart, my... more...

Thank you, Pete, for articulating so well what I've concluded regarding the strange "appearance" of #47 in my life. Turns out that number has been prominent for me for a long time, but I was unaware. Crazy coincidences started appearing 3 yrs ago surrounding this number, and for me, I can also add the number 6. As the phenomena continued, I started feeling much as you stated, like it was a "sign" of sorts that I was on the right path and that ultimately everything would be ok in the long run. It gives me reassurance when I am feeling hopeless.
Bear with the long story.
I reconnected with my first love (we were together happily for 4yrs before fate intervened)I always missed him as a best friend and my first true love (and turns out a soulmate?) that I never could forget and after 33 yrs we randomly made contact in a major way on 4/6/10. The next day, (4/7/10) we both admitted our love had never died after all those years despite both of us being in good long term marriages to other people.
So the feeling... more...

To the most recent comment from Anonymous - 4/09/13 7:38 AM, we have a lot in common. . . That is a beautiful story. That first love was without a doubt a soul mate of yours. We all have many, I'm sure your current partner is also a soul mate. Sometimes they come and go in your life, but the good news is they will always pop in your life with a divine sense of purpose right when you need them and that you'll likely understand their purpose sometime in the future. I can certainly relate because my awakening (4 year ago now) was triggered by a past lover also. Although it wasn't from this lifetime, I remembered her and we connected immediately. Over the next year, we got to know each other and there seem to be no rules or boundaries for conversation topics between us. Then, fate intervened, and she moved away for a job transfer. I felt empty, like something was missing from my life. I too have started a family so this soul mate reunion/disruption shook me to the core. It unraveled everything I have ever... more...

### 47 is a warning sign

by Anonymous - 4/19/13 12:11 AM
47 is a warning sign of treachery and deceit. I've seen this # 47 since I was 17 I'm 28 now and see it still. I recently had a connection and it was not with someone from above, but below. Wherever path you are leading and if you see this number. Start paying attention to your sixth sense. It's right.

Fellas , it is one of many numbers that may be used as symbols, maybe God is giving you an opportunity to know him , in Matthew says ask and you shall receive so ask God what he wants you to do ...john 7:4-7 says Beloved, love one another , for everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God , but those who love not , don't know God , because God is love.

by coen - 4/10/13 2:28 AM
There's a hiphop artist called capital steez. His album cover was a sign with the numbers 47 in it. A while after the album dropped he commited suicide. Because he had voices in his head telling him that the world will end in 2047 and that he'd come back as a god in 2047 to save the world if he killed himself. I thought this might be interesting for you.

### 47 is the connection

by J.O.A - 6/19/12 7:38 AM
If you see it follow it. It is a connection to God and by God I mean the one who sent Jesus to die for our sins. I been seeing it for the past 2yrs but only after it was revealed to me by a close friend. Challenge the connection. Call on it and watch it appear. When you find yourself in prayer...it will appear. PRAISE THE LORD! 47 is a guide. It is one of the many was God speaks to us. Don't be afraid of the connection. Just be aware of your surroundings when it appears. IT IS A REAL CONNECTION BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE A CONNECTION WITH THE TRUE GOD AND HIS SON..AMEN!

Yes it is the connection with the True God and His son Jesus. Not any thing to do with us being God. Or being so arrogant to think that we are God. No it is the one true God of all creation and his loving Son Jesus. Has anyone ever thought that all of the Aborted babies had alot of the answers to alot of mans problems, that they were given the knowledge to help all of mankind. These are things I think about alot. How about all of you that have commented on this site. I wish you would all put out the things that you think about on this site. No matter what people my think. This is the perfect site to put it all out there. Carla

### 47 hopefully is the answer

by Anonymous - 3/14/13 7:43 PM
I think all of us are looking for the same thing! The answer. I think its a sign of something to come. Maybe its are calling. Maybe all of us are connected, as this number is connected to us. It has a real meaning and a connection within me that im trying to decode. It finds me anywhere i go - it calls for attention - It wants are attention. Maybe we are the 144,000? Na, can't be. Could it?

You can email me to discuss are connection with this number. Please let me know and i'll post my email. May the number 47 be with you and all of you!

### RE: 7:47

by Rick 47 - 3/09/13 1:46 PM
It looks like there is a smaller number of us that relate to the specific time of 7:47.
I have been observing this for about seven years now and usually it happens about twice a day.
There must be something in common with our group. What if we were to have a FB page just for us so we could compare our year of birth, time of birth, religious beliefs or whatever commonality we have. I for one feel a need to figure this out and I am certain that this is no coincidence.
I did recently read on one of the 47 comments that there is a comet with the number, "747" and named "Winchester". I am about three miles from the city of Winchester. Not sure if that is anything.
Time is the main thing with me. Now days I see the time when it is on the 47 minute about five times a day or so. It seems to get more frequent as the years pass. And I too, for some reason relate this to some type of warning. Maybe we are all simply similar minded in the way we think or behave or perceive things. Maybe ESP is real and... more...
