The complete listing of seven, which can be found in any exhaustive concordance, is quite extensive. Here are just a few examples:
Perhaps most significant of all, God made the week as seven days at the time of creation (see The Seven Days Of Creation), and decreed the seventh day of the week to be holy (Genesis 2:2-3) at that time, long before it was formalized as The Fourth Commandment (Exodus 20:8-11). The Sabbath identifies Him as The God of Creation, and therefore the only True God, and it also serves as one of the signs between Him and His true people (Exodus 31:13).
The seven-day week is the only time measurement that cannot be detected by natural means. The length of a day is obvious from sunset to sunset, a month from new moon to new moon, a year from spring to spring, but the 7-day week exists only because it was revealed by God to humanity, according to His Will. If there were no God, there would be no week.
Fact Finder: After The Return Of Jesus Christ, will all people of the world observe God's Sabbaths?
