Now Paul wrote to only seven churches. Now that’s not because there weren’t more than seven churches. Just as John the apostle, recorded Christ’s words to seven churches, Paul the apostle recorded Christ’s word to seven churches and that is because the seven signify the whole. In God’s economy, seven is always the number of totality, of completions.
Seven days in a week and the idea of the seven-fold Spirit of God and the seven-fold grace of God and all that is attached to that, but the book of Philippines starts out with Paul and Paul was a monumental man.
