The number 10 is considered as the most perfect of all numbers. This is because it contains the unit which makes it distinct and zero which depicts matter and chaos and is also related to created and non-created, power and force, life and nothing and the beginning and end.

    Number 10 is said to be the number of divine perfection: the ten commandments, 1/10 of your income is the tithe, 10 plagues on Egypt, 10 x 10 silver sockets which formed the foundation of Tabernacle and the 10 “I AM”s which Jesus Spoke in John. The ten I AM’s are I am the bread of life, I am the bread of life which came down from heaven, I am the living bread, I am the light of the world, I am one that bears witness of myself, I am the door of the sheep, I am the good shepherd, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the way, the truth and the life and the 10th one is I am the true vine.

    His death at 10:10 is a sign of God. May God bless his soul.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA, FROM THE MOUNTAINS, TO THE PRAIRIES, TO THE OCEANS!

      The legacy of Bush’s the-father presidency is defined by his victory over Iraq after the invasion of Kuwait, and for his presiding over the collapse of the USSR and unification of Germany.

      A great man!
