Sermon Notes: God’s Favorite Number

The number “three” is often seen throughout scripture and carries significant meaning and representation.


1. The Trinity or Godhead: Father, Son and Spirit

2. Man: Spirit, Soul and Body

3. Consciousness of the Mind: Conscious, Superconscious and Subconscious

 Matthew 18:20

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

1 Corinthians 13:13

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love

Ecclesiastes 4:12

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

1 Peter 1:3

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

God’s Three Feast for Every Believer

Deuteronomy 16:16

“Each year every man in Israel must celebrate these three festivals: the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Harvest, and the Festival of Shelters. On each of these occasions, all men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he chooses, but they must not appear before the LORD without a gift for him.

 There are 3 great periods of God’s annual Feast days of worship. They are the spring festivals (Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread), the summer festival (Pentecost) and the fall festivals (Feast of Trumpets, Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles).”

1. Jesus prayed three times in the Garden of Gethsemane before He was arrested.

2. He was placed on the cross at the 3rd hour of the day (9 a.m.) and died at the 9th hour.

3. There were 3 hours of darkness that covered the land while Jesus was suffering on the cross from the 6th hour to the 9th hour. This is the number of resurrection.

4. Christ was dead for three full days and nights, a total of 72 hours, before being resurrected on Saturday, April 8, just before sunset on the third day.

5. Jesus’ three last words, “IT IS FINISHED!”

Google: The number 3 biblically represents divine wholeness, completeness, and perfection. If there ever was a desire to highlight an idea, thought, event or noteworthy figure in the Bible for their prominence, the number 3 was used to put a divine stamp of completion or fulfillment on the subject.

Peter needed the power found on those 3 final words of Jesus.

“IT IS FINISHED!” : tetelestai

 1. Used in business to mean that “the debt is fully paid.”

2. In the court to mean “the sentence has been fully served.”

3. In military terms to mean, “the battle has been fully won.


Because of the finished work of Jesus on the cross we can live knowing:

1. Our sin debt has been fully paid!

2. Our sentence of death was fully served by Jesus Christ.

3. Through the resurrection power of Jesus, over death, hell, and the grave, we have been given victory over the world, the flesh, and the devil.

It only takes two to get two three:

“Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth.”


Romans 10:8-10

8 “But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

 What you should expect after you receive Jesus Christ:

 Romans 8:11

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.

Romans 5:17

For if by the trespass of the one (Adam), death reigned through the one (Adam), much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in [eternal] life through the One, Jesus Christ.
