Five - The Number of Death?
In dealing with the Five Points of Calvinism, It is certainly fitting that five is the number of death, so the Five Points of Calvinism will kill anything near it. Just as it takes no keen intellect to see that five is the biblical number of death, so no insight is necessary, other than an ability to read the Bible, to see the flagrant perversion that the Five Points of Calvinism make of Holy Scripture. Satan, the angel of death is the fifth cherub (Ezek 28:14) and has the power of death (Heb 2:14). The first man dies in Genesis 5:5.
In Acts 5:5, Ananias dies after being asked five questions about his sin. "The wages of sin is death" -Rom 6:23. Paul was whipped five times (2nd Corinthians 11:24). Jesus Christ had five wounds. In Revelation chapter five, we see the Lamb that was slain (Rev 5). During the Tribulation, locusts will torment men for five months (Rev 9:5) until they seek death (Rev 9:6). When the fifth seal was opened, John saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain (Rev 6:9).
There were five men stoned in the Bible that died. The "sin unto death" is in 1st John five. The greatest chapter in the Bible on death, describing two men whose deaths affected all humanity, is Romans chapter five. Even the word "death" contains five letters. When David went forth to kill the giant Goliath, he carried with him five smooth stones.
It is in the fifth book of the New Testament, in the fifth verse, of the fifth chapter where we read, "And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things." More than a coincidence? You decide!
