And I heard the Lord say,
“The number 120 has great significance!”

We know “God’s Word” has countless revelations if we only ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to us what He is saying. When His light is shed, it opens our understanding.

My prayer for many years has been “to show me the Hidden Things”.

Some will say, “just live what you know and you will do well” and that is true to a point.

However, it is my belief that when we see something that has eluded us for years and suddenly we discover a passage that speaks to us it can be a refreshing wind.

“These hidden things” when found give you a new hunger! Whenever we see a new piece of God’s truth being revealed to us it will drive us deeper into the things of God.

Likewise numbers also have (pardon the pun) innumerable meanings when applied.

Numbers can be manipulated to prove or disprove just about anything in the Scriptures. However, we do know that our God is the creator of physics, geology, and every type of science, including that of mathematics.

There is a study of “Metrology” which is the science of weights and measurements

For instance certain words dictate a measurement, distance or weight used in the Bible.

A Hebrew Cubit = about 18 inches

A Reed = 8.75 feet

A Sabbath Day’s journey = 2,000 cubits or 1,000 yards

A Furlong = 1/8 th of a mile or 220 yards

A Talent = 93 lbs. 12 ounces (considered to be 100# or about that of what a man can lift

A Denarius (Gk) = The daily Wages of a laborer

When you come to these words and you apply them, the passages will become more real and will be invaluable to you in your study.


Years ago, the Lord spoke to me regarding the importance and significance of the Number “120”.
And He said,

“The number 120 signifies the passing away the age of the flesh and the beginning of the age of the Spirit”.

Each time you see the number 120 in the Bible, you will see how this “Definition” will apply and enhance your perception of what is taking place in that particular passage.



  1. “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years” Genesis 6:3
  2. Moses lived 120 and died just prior to the Hebrews entering in to “The Promised Land” Deut. 34:7  
  3. 120 Priests with King Solomon when they brought the Ark of the Covenant up to Jerusalem. 2nd Chronicles 5:12
  4. 120 were gathered in the upper room when to the Holy Spirit came upon them.
  5. The first Gentile Believer Cornelius who lived in  Caesarea (which is 120 miles North of Jerusalem).
  6. PETRA is 120 SE of  Jerusalem, Petra will be the hiding place in the future.
  7. 120 members in the modern day Israeli Knesset who govern Israel.
  8. There are 120 Jubilees

A Jubilee is a 50-year Jewish cycles that removed every man out of captivity & into his own land.
120 of these Jubilees (50 years) = 6,000 years of man.

There are several other examples of the number “120” that can easily be applied.


120  Translates to:
End of the Age of the flesh and the beginning of the Age of the Spirit!
