I didn't realize the significance of number 7, though reading that it meant "completeness" makes a lot of sense.

hi there! I like your blog so much! I have a question though.. Does God really have 7 eyes? Where can I find it in the bible? ..& do you know where to read the revelations (except from the bible) ?
