Christian dominations consider seven to be a holy number because Genesis says that God rested on the 7th day and man was created on the 6th day, therefore 777 is thought to be the antithesis of 666. Because God rested on the 7th day, that is the reason for the observance of the Hebrew Sabbath on the last day of the week. The 7th day of the week is indicated on the Hebrew Lunar calendar containing 13 months of four weeks each.
