153 Fish

153 table

Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three. (John 21:11 NKJV)

The charts to the left and below show by adding one more each time, done seventeen times indicates how the number 153 fits in the shape of a pyramid.

153 pyramid

“In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt...and it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt.”(Isa.19:19-20)

What does this mean? The figure of a pyramid shows harmony with a topstone where the foundation is laid in heaven. It pictures the church in harmony with its head, our Lord Jesus and the future ages when Israel is in harmony with Assyria and Egypt (figuring the world) who would be His heritage, His people and the work of His hand.

“We must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.” (Ephesians 4:15 NRSV)
