The Number 9 - The Number of Completion
The Parable of the Prodigal Son - Return of the King - Lord of the Rings
Luk 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: Luk 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
"Among the disciples of Apollonius and other ancient philosophers many mystic potencies were ascribed to number 9. It was frequently worn as an amulet, 1 method being that of having it engraved upon a sardonyx stone set in a silver ring. Such a ring was worn upon the 2nd finger of the left hand (the Saturn finger) as a sign of having passed a certain Initiation. In such a case it was said to possess the power of making the wearer invisible at will. The ring, however, had to be presented to the successful candidate at the time of the Initiation, after having been made under the special conditions necessary. Many curious and authentic tales are told, even today, of the mysterious power of invisibility possessed by certain highly advanced individuals."

"As number 9 is the square of the 1st odd number or trinity, 3, it represents Deity descending into humanity and evolving through man until squared, or until through Initiation man has manifested the Divine in each of the 3 worlds (physical, astral, causal). Number 9 is also the Number of Initiation because it is a trinity of trinities—God, man and nature—man, woman and the magnetic link between them—love, truth and understanding—each trinity of which, no matter how we deny or try to escape it, brings us face to face with Deity (3) in the 3 worlds and ultimately completes our Great Initiation.
Every step by which we evolve from 1 number to the next is a minor initiation, but after each 3 such minor steps there is a Major Initiation which when passed admits us into a new cycle (10) and realm of consciousness. At each minor initiation we must face our personality, but at each Major Initiation we must face our own Soul or Deity (3). These 3 Major Initiations, which complete the Great Initiation of number 9, are represented mathematically thus:
0+1+2+3+4=10, the Cycle of Nature or physical conditions, whose symbol is the Staff.
(10)+5+6+7=28=10, the Cycle of Man or The Christ force, whose symbol is the Robe.
(28)+8+9+10=55=10, the Cycle of Super-man or the Higher Self, whose symbol is a lighted Candle or Lamp of Hermes
The Staff is the Staff of the Patriarchs by the use of which we tread the Narrow Way of Initiation leading to the heaven world. The Robe is the Robe of The Christ or the Mantle of Nature. When clothed in it we are 1 with all manifested life. The Lamp of Hermes is the Light of Wisdom which lights the way of the Super-Man.
The 9th letter also expresses the idea of Wisdom, for the protection or roof must be the result of the Wisdom of the Initiate himself. When he has reached this step we are told that he must lay down every weapon, both of offense and defense. He can no longer seek protection from the power of his strength, nor can he ask that any being outside of himself shall protect him, yet he who has attained unto Wisdom is protected from every ill. In
Ecclesiastes we read that, “Wisdom is a defense. * * * Wisdom strengtheneth the wise man more than ten mighty men. * * * Wisdom is better than strength” etc.4 When we have attained his Wisdom we have learned the lesson of the 9th letter and are ready to face the Great Initiation.
When you have wisdom which comes from the Light of Christ, The Shekinah, Kundalini, Holy Ghost, Your Lord (everyone has their own) fights for you from a higher dimension. We are septenary (7 dimensional beings). In the Bible it is stated he fights for Israel. Israel is a new name for Jacob, meaning Israel was enlightened. He was given a new name. etc. etc.
