In the Bible the number 17 symbolizes "overcoming the enemy" and "complete victory." God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when he began to flood the earth through rain on the 17th of the second Hebrew month. Noah's ark and its eight passengers rested on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th of the seventh month (right in the middle of God's annual Holy period known as the Feast of Tabernacles).
Jesus Christ gained a complete victory over death and the grave when God resurrected him near sunset on Nisan 17 (Saturday, April 8, 30 A.D.). Jesus’ victory has positioned us to be victorious people. Today don’t settle for living in defeat in any area of your life. Seek to have complete victory. “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).
