- 70 sons of El in the assembly on Mount Hermon – plus Ba’al and El = 72 (Canaanite pantheon) (some texts read 72)
- 70 nations created by God and given over to 70 fallen angels/sons of god/rebel divine council after the Tower of Babel incident (some texts read 72) Genesis 10 & 11
- 70 elders of Israel on Mount Sinai (72 counting Moses and Aaron) Exodus 24:1-2, 9-11
- 6 sons of God on the Mount of Transfiguration (Jesus – The Son of God, Moses, Elijah, James, Peter and John on Mount Hermon) Mark 9:2-8 [6×12=72 6×24=144 72×2=144 —both 6 and 72 are divisors of 144]
- 70 disciples were sent out by Jesus (some texts read 72) Luke 10:1-20
- In all of the Biblical cases, God was declaring that the gods over the nations (72) were in the process of being replaced.
- So in Revelation 7 & 14, the 144,000 (glorified church, including saved Israel) on Mount Zion (144000/2=72000 a multiple of 72!) is the ultimate declaration and fulfillment of the gods of the nations being deposed. The new sons of God replacing the corrupt sons of God and taking control of God’s Mount of Assembly!
