Numbers are used in Scripture, not merely as in Nature, with supernatural design, but with spiritual significance. Understanding the deep meanings of 7 and 8 helps us to remove religious confusion and deception, thereby, clearing the way for the proper service to GOD Almighty. We must get the concept that the number 8 is above nature, which is represented by the number 7. Eight is associated with an awareness of the miraculous. The number 8 on its side is the same as the symbol for infinity that is also above nature.

The number 8, on the other hand, is one more than 7. This relates to the transcendent -- above the order of nature.
The NUMBER 8 ACCORDING TO THE COMPANION BIBLE
EIGHT. Denotes...regeneration; a new beginning or commencement. The eighth is a new first. Hence the octave in music, colour, days of the week, etc. It is the number which has to do with the LORD... It, or its multiple is impressed on all that has to do with the Lord's Names, the Lord's People, the Lord's works.-- Companion Bible (App. 10)
