7 Men of God And The Number 7, Any Connection?

This is not a religious piece because I can hear some people sighing heavily thinking that this is a write up from one overzealous religious bigot,  I admit I am zealous about the things of God but what you are reading from whatever part of the world you are is a piece of mystery that came up while I was worshiping in the morning fellowship sometime back and discovered that there is a link between seven men of God and the number seven.

Take it that in the secular setting seven stands for good luck as I remember that movie of yesteryears ‘Seven Lucky Kids’. In the spiritual world, the number seven stands for perfection. The word ‘Perfect’ has seven letters just think of that. Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church Worldwide is no stranger to the number because his native and surname have consist of seven letters and I mean ‘Adejare’ and ‘Adeboye’. Bishop David Oyedepo, his protege is not left out of the picture for his native and surname also consist of seven letters each, ‘Olaniyi’ and ‘Oyedepo’. Dr Daniel Olukoya, the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles belongs to this class of clergymen for his surname consists of seven letters. Also on this list are Archbishop Benson Idahosa, Apostle Gabriel Olusegun Oduyemi who has seven letters in his first  and last name and T.L Osborne all of blessed memory and also Dr. Michael Dean Murdock.

Is this mysterious or is just pure coincidence that these seven men of God have seven letter surnames, what do you think dear reader?
