Five: The Power of God's Hand
Five represents the power of God's hand. For it is the power by which He created the universe. And it is the power by which He shall destroy all of mankind.
It is by the hand of God that He shows His love and kindness, and it is by the hand of God that in vengeance He destroys. “Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You from those who rise up against them.” (Psalms 17:7) For God controls all things in His hands, and He created man from the work of His hands. For the Roman numeral for five is V, which is the creative power of His hands. And theGreek numeral for five is epsilon (ε), which is the yearning of life from our hands. For “You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” (Psalms 145:16)
