Third and Seventh

 ‘He who touches the dead body of anyone shall be unclean seven days.  He shall purify himself with the water on the third day and on the seventh day; then he will be clean. But if he does not purify himself on the third day and on the seventh day, he will not be clean.  Whoever touches the body of anyone who has died, and does not purify himself, defiles the tabernacle of the Lord. That person shall be cut off from Israel. He shall be unclean, because the water of purification was not sprinkled on him; his uncleanness is still on him.” Numbers 19:11-13

The third and seventh days are equated here. They are the same prophetically. The seventh 1,000 years from Adam’s fall is the same time as the third 1,000 years from Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. This passage is telling us not to hold on to those who chose second death during the Millennial Reign of Christ. All die in Adam but only the willfully obstinate will die the second death. First death is inevitable but not second. We are not to mourn the wicked that chose this.
