# 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.

### Why your seeing 7:47 all the time

Its a glitch in our "matrix". If you truly realize what your doing as you see 7:47 its always something strange, because its familiar, your noticing the patterns, you"ve done this before, many times and ur seeing the reset...i can bring you the poison, but you have to drink it. AWARENESS = BALANCE.

47 is the number of the Law, to keep the 10 commandments. According to the God of Israel, Jesus. The one true God.

4 in Chinese numerology is associated with death, and 7 is the whole number of God.

47 brings balance into the universe, wherein this world for so many generations there has only been war, excess, rich/poor, hate and love. The world is quite bipolar.

47 means the end is nigh...

### 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.

Oh, hi Mark. Yeah.. ever since 2012, i've been seeing synchronicitys everywhere. Started to explore it and other things these last few years and oh man.. its amazing. Found out that I was a "light worker" from seeing 911 a lot (one of the signs of a lightworker, have all the traits of one) went into occultism and found out more. This universe and world isn't what it appears, but its beautiful. Time to awaken.

Neat to find you all. 747 has been "my" number since I've been a child and I'm in my 40s now, I've seen it everywhere since, including today. Someone told me once she thought it could mean two spiritual (7) columns on a solid (4) base, making a kind of doorway, which I thought was a lovely image.

@ aubs Even though I always see #47 (in all combos of time) after you said "I just looked at the clock & saw 7:47" I decided to look at the clock & saw 11:44 lol Interesting set of number even for a deliberate glance.

Also, by the time I found the 'leave a reply' button & started commenting here, by chance I looked at my PC clock & saw 11:47, which is nothing new to me. I see 47 multiple times a day.

I'm 46 lol no pun intended, I've been seeing 7:47 for a number of years, I travel a lot and have often thought about air travel on that particular airplane.
I'm drawn to the clock at this time of morning and night and I don't understand why. I even know the time before I look now so it doesn't surprise me much anymore but I still don't understand .
My religion is Christian. I'm a good person, don't trust much anymore, don't know why I'm even telling you all this. My hands go numb all the time. I feel supercharged. Where's life because I want to live it .

I've been seeing 7:47, no matter am or pm. I see it everyday. I've seen it for the last past 20 years. What does this mean? I've tried adding the numbers together, subtracting it, changing it into months, Heck, I wish I knew what it means. My luck has not been good these last few years. Hmmm.

### RE:7:47

I live in Canada and went on a trip to Hawaii last week with a good friend and while in Hawaii i started to notice that i kept looking at the time at 7:37, 7:47 and once even at 7:57..i mostly started to see 7:37 in am and pm but i think now it is more 7:47. Even when i got back to my room yesterday after my long flights, i checked the time and it was 7:47pm. I've been going through a hard relationship which has been on and off for 2 years and a half and i think today it is actually over. I still love my now ex-bf very much but deep down i always felt something was off..and i still couldn't let go. It was extremely hard but today i told him it's over for me after he became distant with me while i was on my trip. A few minutes ago i decided to look at old pictures of him and saw an old screenshot he had sent me, which was taken at 7:47pm. Before my trip, i felt the end was near for my relationship and always felt a strong intuition, maybe i was ignoring it for a long time though. I like to believe that my... more...

I also am seeing the number constantly. I started my job 30 years ago and they gave me an employee ID number0747. If I look at the clock it is 7:47. Not 46 not 35, not22 ...constantly 7;47 OR 47. Driving myself crazy to find any meaning.

### RE:7:47

by Anonymous - 10/21/17 8:58 AM
I've been experiencing the same thing, but it doesn't just occur with 7:47. Every time I look at the clock, it's hour:minute hour, so like 3:53 or 9:49, and so on. My phone also freezes, and since it's old, I have to take out the battery. Once it turns back on after returning the battery, I see hour:minute hour. Unlike everyone here, this doesn't necessarily creep me out, or give me a negative feeling, I just see it, think "oh cool", and move on. It has been occurring for a long time though.

Mile marker 47 right in front of my house, 7:47 and 4:47 on my phone constantly, battery percentages, license plates, music, I've read that 47 might be something called the angel number/ angelic number but haven't gone that far into it. The page I saw stated that once you start seeing the number, the higher powers that control you are letting you know that they are aware you have started a committed spiritual journey. I appreciate that description. It's crazy that people who have no reference to Pro Era or Capital Steez think about this number. Blows me away. I'm not alone. The fourth Chakra of the body is the heart, the seventh chakra of the body is the Crown, or the brain, possibly implying confliction between mind and heart. Any additions?

by Delysid1947 - 9/16/17 6:47 AM
4 represents the heart, so, emotion, intuïtion and connection.
7 represents the mind, so, thinking.

And it's important to find a balance (B47ANCE) between the two.

I, for example, have too much of the 7. This causes me to think a lot, I'm going really deep! But because of this I tend to "forget" to actually live, feel and experience, here, in the present.

love

Intuitively pulled towards our center. Eye see 47 synchronicities. Through symmetry eye see our evolution. What is the next branch for humanity? Eye believe seeing b47ance in the chaos and in the beauty will. Seeing evolutionary ingredients like the fibonacci sequence and the Pythagorean therum which guide the hand weaving our awareness. We are all fractals being birthed into existence by this ever expanding web of life. Chaos is the sperm and beauty is the egg that impregnates and carries our evolution forward. It's the key that harmonizes our universe/orchestra:) A key that will unlock our hearts and help us sync. Evolution never and always sounded so sweet 47

As stated 47 is the Quintessential Random Number of the universe. I've been seeing it everywhere, every time eye check the clock eye been seeing 47, on ads everywhere. 47 is a balance, a pattern thats been replicating human life as we know. 47 is our literal understanding of it since we can't actually interpret what it means. Thats why humans make up God and other deities that are beyond our power for understanding the basis of life. Or it could just be some bs we seen and think it means anything. Trying to understand life is the goal of the human mind and that is everlasting.

by Anonymous - 8/15/17 5:05 AM
For the last 20 years or so everywhere I go I notice the numbers 1147. When I check the time, when I shop, when I'm just passing a sign. It became so frequent that I told close family and a friend that it was a regular occurrence that started to make me a little uneasy. Over time they began to notice it while with me as well. I started looking into the meanings of these numbers a long time ago but I never really found anything that stood out . Just recently started looking into it again, thus how I reached this site. I'm still unsure as to what it means or if it means anything, but this site helped at least give me some insite.

I just started seeing 47s last year. When I see them, it is never when I am looking for them, and it is always in clusters. Very often there will be ones mixed in sometimes zeros. And lots of 74s combined. So it seems that the way it works for me, is that whenever something uncomfortable is going on in my life, I will have a series of these "jump out" at me. 7447 on two license plates in a row, or I will pause my TV and the clock and show's time line will both be 47, or like the date of your post, 7/14/17. I started putting 47 in my art and taking photos of some of the biggest 47s. I know that 47 does not appear on my odometer or clock more than other numbers. I do know that my attention is drawn to that number far more frequently than any other number, especially waking up at night.
