You have seen what the number 6 can mean in general and also what kind of messages your guardian angels can send you through this number. Now is the time to see something about the biblical and prophetic meaning of the number 6.
The number six refers to a lot of things in the Bible, but it is first mentioned in Genesis 1:31 Open in the Logos Bible Software (if available) when God created man on the sixth day.
According to biblical scholars, just as the number 7 usually signifies completion or perfection, especially of God, the number 6 is shy which means it signifies imperfection. More specifically, it refers to man’s imperfection, his sin and his weakness.
As we all know, Adam began to eat the forbidden fruit in the garden and severed the connection between heaven and man, allowing sin to enter the earth. The weakness of man is that the number 6 is called the “man number”.
Joshua and Jericho
The sixth chapter of Joshua is where we read that Joshua and the Israelites walked around Jericho once a day for six days with seven priests, each carrying a trumpet (remember, seven means perfection). It was on the seventh day that the people had to walk around Jericho seven times with the priests blowing the trumpet for the city walls to fall.
God ordered the Israelites to walk for six days to prove their imperfect ability to tear down Jericho. But on the seventh day, God destroyed the city so that He alone would receive the glory. Only God is perfect and he alone can perform perfect miracles. It is not by the power of man, but only by the hand of God.
A precursor to rest
God’s fourth commandment tells us to work for six days and rest on the seventh (Exodus 20: 8 Open in Logos Bible Software (if available), Exodus 31: 12-17 Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)). God may have given us this commandment because He knows our weaknesses so well and we are unable to work continuously seven days a week. I know I can’t.
God also ordered the Israelites to harvest their land for six years and let it rest in the seventh year. The seventh year is called the Year of Jubilee. God’s order is not only a pure agricultural genius, it is also to illustrate the power of God to restore what He has made.
(Curiosity: God also uses the jubilee year as a time to forgive property debts and to give freedom to slaves. See Jacob’s story here.)
Another example of God’s restorative power is his support for the creation of man on the sixth day and the subsequent fall into sin with Jesus’ death on the cross on the sixth day of Easter.
The seventh day of the Passover celebration was the Sabbath, according to the Fourth Commandment. This meant that all legal penalties were resolved on the sixth day of Easter week. So Pontius Pilate and Herod reviewed Jesus on the fifth day and in the early morning hours of the sixth day, so he was nailed to the cross on the afternoon of the sixth day.
Just as man was created in six days, Jesus restored the connection between heaven and man on the sixth day of Easter, paving the way for us to find salvation through his redeeming blood.
Appearances of the number six
Jephthah (in the East) served six years as a Judge of Israel (Judges 12:7).
The Bible mentions six earthquakes (Exodus 19:18, 1Kings 19:11, Amos 1:1, Matthew 27:54, 28:2, Acts 16:26).
Jesus was accused six times of being demon possessed (Mark 3:22, John 7:20, 8:48, 8:52, 10:20 and Luke 11:15).
How is the number 6 related to Sorcery?
In the New Testament there are six references to people who practiced witchcraft, which is defined as divination with the help of evil spirits.
- In the end time, false prophets and false christs will produce great signs and wonders (sorcery) for the expressed purpose of deception (Matthew 24:24)
- Apostle Paul’s first missionary journey takes him to the island of Cyprus (Acts 13:4 – 52, 14:1 – 25). He meets with the island’s Governor who is accompanied by Elymas (also called Bar-Jesus), a man who was a false prophet and sorcerer.
- In Samaria, a man named Simon the Sorcerer observes Philip preaching the gospel and performing a number of miracles. He feigns repentance, gets baptized and follows Philip to see him perform signs and wonders.
Simon sees, when Peter and John come to the city, that when they lay hands on people they receive God’s Holy Spirit. Simon soon approaches the two apostles and tries to BUY the ability to give the Holy Spirit so that he can further promote his deceptions (Acts 8).
- While visiting Philippi during his second missionary journey, the apostle Paul runs into a slave woman “possessed with a spirit of divination” (Acts 16:16). Her masters use her soothsaying skills to make money.
- Traveling Jewish exorcists, using various charms, incantations and so on, pretend to heal people and cast out demons (Acts 19:13).
- The seven sons of a Jewish chief priest named Sceva try, but fail miserably, at casting out demons (Acts 19:14 – 16).

Why do you see number 6?
If you have the feeling that the number 6 is appearing more than usual in your life, it is probably a sign that your angels have come to visit you. They have been watching over you for a long time and have come to you with a clear mission: to help you. If you are going through a difficult time right now, your angels will help you overcome any problems and live your life in peace and harmony.
The number 6 is a symbol of positive things that will come into your life. There will be many positive changes in all aspects of your life. Therefore, you should not ignore angel number 6 when you see it in many different situations, but you should think more about its symbolism.
As we have said before, angel number 6 will motivate you to maintain balance in your life and take control of your own life. When you receive the angel number 6, you should keep in mind that it is also a biblical number with very important prophetic meaning.
We have already explained what the number 6 means in the biblical sense and we hope you will think about it next time when you see the number 6.
Thus, the number 6 of the Bible concerns man and his work. It means the shortcomings of man and the corruption he has added to the world created by God. However we mathematically represent the six, it simply means corruption and imperfection. It shows man as someone devoid of God. Since it was created on the sixth day of creation, this number is permanently stamped on it and it will carry this number forever. The number six denotes not only human labor, but also human suffering. Since the perfection of God is corrupted by human corruption, man is bound to suffer from sorrow. Man has been given six days to work and do work and one day to rest and this is also seen in the modern age. It is also true that the creation ended on the sixth day i.e. God completed the creation of the world on the sixth day, therefore, it also represents secular perfection.
