What Does 333 Mean In A Nutshell And Why Do I Keep Seeing It?

This morning, I've aready seen 333 twice now, on the clock and on an account balance! I see it somewhere almost every day, like my eyes just know where and when to look and find it. It's so frequent and has been for a few years now that I just really want to know if it means something! Today is the first time I'm looking it up. I'm not religious, I believe in a higher power but I don't practice any religion so I'm not familiar with any bible verses ect. I've kind of always worried it might be something bad so, I really just want to know, in a nutshell, what does it mean if you see it often, in different places?

I've been seeing 333 for years but have started to see 334 now. Waking up to 334 instead of 333. I'm a Christian, does anyone have any insight on possible meanings to this? Thanks!

In my experience, 333 is representation of the holy trinity, and in music it represents the song Holy, Holy, Holy. I've been singing this song in my sleep for the past two years, and have been seeing 333 all over the place. I just joined a Baptist church and the song that came up in the service was Holy, Holy, Holy. I strongly believe it's a calling number for you to wake up and get close to Christ. God Bless.

Add a response...Hi. 333 is the sign of the holy trinity --the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. You should feel really good when you see this. It means The Lord is with you, you should feel very lucky, safe, and loved, as this means the Lord is with you and holding you in the palm of His hand. I am thrilled whenever is see it, I feel very good.....and it happens often to me.

333 means "choose this day who you will serve" (Jesus or Satan)

Matthew 6:24 - "No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."

Basically, God is sending you this 333 message out of love. He wants to save you. He is telling you that you are not serving the right master. if you are not serving Jesus, you are serving satan by default and you are on a firery road straight to hell my friend.

Please my friends accept Jesus Christ into your heart, admit you are a sinner, and ask him to save you and write your name in the book of life so you will be with him forever more after death.

And if you have already prayed this sinners prayer long ago and are seeing 333, you are doing something wrong. You are doing or into something God hates and you are on a bad path my friend. Come back to Jesus. Repent and start living a holy life for him.

God bless and I love you all.

hey i too have been seeing the numbers 333 /33 for a few years now and have come to the conclusion i see it more when a change is about to happen and that someone or something is letting me know, i too am not a religious person but believe that there is something ,

I dont have any answers as to why you are seeing this number. I too have been seeing 333. Clocks both in my house and car. I set my gps to a destination said id get there at 3:33. Gas stations. Prices on grocery items. I do carpet cleanings and have to get square footage so i can price out the jobs. Last one came up to 333 sq ft. Co worker asked me how long i have worked at present job. Worked there three years, quit for 3 years, been back for 3 months. I also see 33, 334, 11:11. Put 10 dollars into gas tank. Gave me 3.33 gallons of gas. So i dont know what is going on. Good to see others who experience this as well. Thought i was going crazy

My hubby and I keep seeing 333. Hubby runs and times it to bet his previous run. He stopped the stop watch and had 33mins 33seconds and 33 tenth of a second...33:33:33 !!!!! My new baby wakes me up at 3:33am most mornings and I see 333 all the time. Also my children are 3hrs, 3days and 3yrs apart!!! I have 3 children. Twins and single bub. Twins were born 3mins apart.

This happens to me too. The bible verse I can relate it to mostly is Jeremiah 33:3: "Call to Me, and I will answer you. And I will show you great and wonderful things which you do not know." Last night I woke up at exactly this time & I recited this verse to God.

I've been seeing 333 for some time now and while I am an atheist the bible verse is an interesting theory. That being said I have a theory that its just a series of numbers that stick out and we may all actually be seeing a lot of numbers over and over again but something like 333 just stands out. Realize that there is only ten numbers to choose from (0-9). And while there can be literally an infinite number of combinations to those numbers when you put no limit on them (how many, repeated, ext.) When you put clocks into the equation that number is significantly reduced. Idk, seeing 333 all the time does creep me out a little I'm just saying that there is probably a rational explanation.

I have seen 333 for 15 years. I cannot escape it. I am not sure what it means, but my soul tells me everything will be alright. I say to all who see this, fight the good fight, keep your love and your heart strong, and always be grateful to the ones that truly love you. We are spirits living in a dangerous world. I dont know if I will make it here on Earth, but I will go to Heaven. Those of us who have done good things on the Earth will be rewarded.

i personally believe that nothing can be explained. we can not disprove a god and we cannot disprove science so therefor both are equally wrong. i believe that every guess we have ever made has been in the dark. on another note i do see that science has explained alot and its given us all this crap but for the mere fact that we can explain somethings on our own does not prove that there isnt a greater being. the greater being could have created it this way. it could be nothing, it could be a string of gods sitting on a spiritual mountain and it could even be a giant spaghetti monster in the sky (referring to pastafarianism) . but just because i cant explain any of that doesn't mean I'm not curious about why, i too, have been seeing this anomaly. i have been seeing it since i was 10 (im 18 now) and its been getting oddly more frequent as of recently. it use to be once or twice a day but now it seems to happen 3 or 4. i first theorized that my brain had just tuned itself to the clock to check when it was about that time; and that the rest of the times it was a coincidence. i decided to test this theory and so when daylight savings came around i didn't switch my clock over, but alas it was to no prevail. still every night and every evening i see it. I am as convinced as i get that this is is more than just some mere coincidence. so i would like to know if someone else had a logical idea that could possibly be proven? (and please no christian BS, because for all the wrong answers out there, that particular monotheistic god seems the most unlikely).

To angelarose765: I want to encourage you for the appropriate Bible verse for seeing the number 33:3 would be Jeremiah 33:3 from the New Living Translation says:
Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.
It's an invitation from God to call on Him and He will tell you things about your life that you don't know. He knows your past, your present and future. Don't be afraid for God is all good and is love. It is up to you to accept His invitation but know that He is waiting with open arms.

SavedandSecond, I have always thought this. I see this number every where, it stands out to me. Jeremiah 33:3 is the verse that God showed me. Last night, something woke me up at exactly this time and I recited this verse. I asked God to show me what He wants me to see, but no response. Still, I wait. Be blessed

I too have awakened at 3:33am frequently. Also seeing that number when i look at clock in the car and other places as well. My pregnant daughter went to the hospital for a nosebleed. When i arrived in the 3 bed triage, she was the only patient. A call light went off as i entered the room. two nurses came in looking for the source "We don't have a room 333" they said. It was a storage closet i had just walked by. I knew it for me or about me. I am a Christian and was raised in a Baptist Church. Don't attend church now though.

To Mrsoltrapper: a closet is a symbol for our "prayer closet" - where we go to pray to God. Jeremiah 33: 3 [NLT] says - Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come. The number 3 is a symbol for the Trinity = Godhead. This verse is God's invitation to go to Him in your prayer closet. He's confirming that He is inviting you, it is Him. He wants to hear you and wants to invite you to spend time with Him. With that, He will share with you secrets you do not know. Alleviate your worries.

For over 7 months, every time I look at the clock, it is ALWAYS 3:33. After several months, I finally said to my husband...this is more than just a coincidence! I just looked at the clock again....3:33! Every SINGLE TIME! So I finally decided to google it, and happened upon articles and this forum. I did not realize other people were having this same thing happening to them...for how long??? I'm mindblown.

Hope you tried changing the batteries in the clock :) J/K I have 333 happen a lot as well, my best friend started having it 6 years ago, and now we are no longer friends, I do miss her, but I believe it was because she felt guilty for loving my at the time husband and wanted to be with him. I have a sig other now and am very happy, 333 started when I met him.... I have 333 stories that would make your hair stand up on the back of your neck. lol

Dam! I seen your post after my reply above. I'm not laughing anymore :(
you beat me to it.

If it's true that "it is ALWAYS 3:33", I would start with changing the batteries in that clock. :/

An yes I registered just to post this reply. Your welcome *bows to audience*

I never had this experience until I was about 25. My Dad had been diagnosed with cancer about 9 months before. It was my Dad who first mentioned the 333. I don't believe in god or his son or any higher being. I think when you go you go. Anyway my Dad saw the number on a frequent basis before he died. I remember him going to visit my uncle and the google map reading 333 miles. I humoured him, I didn't take much notice but I'm not going to call a dying man a nutter, Even if I thought the drugs were taking an effect. Now after 15 years I can go on and on about the times I've seen 333. Sometimes I consider it a curse as it now makes me sad and other times it makes me think of the dragonfly story, Yes I still get sad but if it's him bouncing of the water trying to get to me I would rather him just let go and enjoy the flight.

I'm a very cynical person. If you knew me you would know it would take a lot for me to even hunt this blog down. I usually shrug it off. We all have the waking up thing in common and I'm sure as you've been typing away on your computer you've instinctively looked at the time, I'll be honest now and again I'm a minute out but 9 times out of 10 it's 333. Please email me if you want to do more research on this. Like I said I don't believe in anything so I believe there's either a personal mood thing that would effect us or we as a group who see this have the same things in common. I would be interested in hearing from you all and finally putting this thing to bed.

The main question would have to be when did you first start seeing this number. Was it at a good time in your life or after loss. Did you start seeing the number after someone else mentioned they did (Like my wife does now) Like my dad did to me? Are you spiritual etc. etc. I think if we all get together we might get some answers.

I personally believe all that see the number have the same emotions. I like ballads musically wise and in my personal life I'm a live wire. I like to go out and get drunk to the point I can't remember things. Whilst drunk I can be a **** head and not very nice but when sober as long as you don't hurt me I'm the best guy ever, Even I like me. I would be interested to hear from people who are the opposite to these traits but still see the number.

i have the getting drunk thing in common

I'm your normal 41 year old male who grew up listening to the stone roses, Happy Mondays and oasis. I like action films but yesterday I had tears flowing while watching Philomena with my wife. That's the point I'm trying to make do we all have that kindness deep down that's making a difference or is it just coincidence?

I too am like you. I've seen the number for years. My friends and my fiancé laughs at me about it and thinks I'm nuts. I'm not crazy! Lol. I've era these post for years but have never commented. I also black out when I've drank too much and I can be mean or nice. Depends. I've worked on changing that in the past few years. I believe that it's a sign for us to be aware that we have angels with us. Yesterday I almost cried about this. I always ignore the knock on the door from the church people you don't want to talk to. I left 10 mins after I thought she left and she drove passed my car and I felt bad and then noticed the license plate said 333. I've already been a 333 believer. I know it's something and I've wondered the same thing about if we all have something in common?? I don't go to church. I live a normal life. Sometimes I have my ups and downs. But mostly due to money and living pay check to pay check. I question a lot if I'm making the right decisions at times. I'm a caring loving person. I love to help others. I could go on. Lol I'm just happy to know I'm not crazy. When I see 333 I try to notice and pay attention to my thoughts and decisions. It's crazy it really is.! :)

Funny thing. I am repeatedly seeing 333 AFTER my father's death. Actually, first time I notice was in his death-bed (the clock was setting 3:33am when I left his room). He died few minutes after. Now it is not unusual that to wake up at this time, and sometimes this number appears in the most strange ways... like, getting a $3,33 change, etc. Interesting...

I've also had the 3,33,333 experience. Then one day I did my numerology. .. and my number was a 3!!!!! So I just say it's because its my life number.

same thing happen to me bro, i dont know how or why but im awakening at exactly 3:33am everytime i look at my cellphone clock..take note it happened to me 3 times.

I have been awakening at 3:33am for several years now. I used to travel a lot, in different time zones, but it was always 3:33am local time. So it is not local noise, or too much water as the travel created new locations and eating/sleeping habits. Eeery feeling to awaken, look at the clock and see that number so often and in so many different places.
I believe there is a super power and that most acts are not random, but just can not understand this occurrance. I am seeking some understanding from others. Your guidance and help is appreciated

I can't believe I haven't looked this up before (on line) and am so glad and amazed tat I am not alone. Those that say they have seen it 'over a dozen, or over 30 times' that s nothing! I've had this number come to me for at least the last 17 years. Started noticing it as others say, waking up at 3.33 in the morning and at no other time, frequently. Then phone numbers, vehicle number plates, bin numbers, I'd park outside 333 houses. Lately it has been much more frequent. many times in a day and today has been out of control. 3 number plates, 2 within 3 minutes and the last one I saw which was not personalised was "HEY 333" it couldn't scream at me any louder. Also had someone call me with 333 number, pulled over to take a phone call outside a shop who had a 333 phone number. Rest of number blocked out by telephone pole. Went to go to a shop and sign on door read "sorry we are closed, relocating to 333".
I've never been worried, just know I'm being told something and want to be able to decipher it.
I've done a bit of research but until I saw this sight, nothing really hit home. Thank-you fellow 333 visionaries for your posts.

Dear Mopar66: Just as with others who posted, I will restate that this is God's invitation to seek Him; just as Him a question about something you want to know. Then wait for Him to answer you. For you though, there is an extra special draw because of how often you've been seeing this number. It seems He is pursuing you pretty hard. That is such a wonderful thing! When God pursues us this much it is because of a blessing He wants to bestow upon us, help us with something or keep us from something that is coming upon our lives. He's not only asking but He is like a man in front of a moving vehicle waiting for you to hit him. I love how He spoke to you in the license plate and said "HEY 333", basically saying, "Hey, look for me and seek me and you will find me and I will answer you."
I see 3:33 whenever I'm thinking about something or worried about something. It is a reminder from God that I need to seek Him and He will give me an answer.

You think there is ever a time some super natural Omnipotent being might be annoyed with you talking like you really know what such an all powerful being really wants or is doing?

This is so strange to me. I have been looking online for awhile to see if anyone else was seeing this number all the time and here you all are. Mine started 9years ago when my mom died. I would wake up several times a week at 3:33 am. Then I would see it in the pm also. I knew it was something but didnt know what. But as of last year I stated writing down each time I would see it and it is sometimes 10 or 12 times a day. It really became intensified when I decided to become catholic and have been in the classes for about 9months now.I would see it on a sale price or how much grapes were a lbs or on the side of a stack of boards. EVERYWHERE. And still do. The funny thing is it surprises me every time. Its like I forget about it until I see it again. I do believe it has something to do with a spiritual choice god wants us to make and seek him.

me to just landded on the number 333 and looked back at the the timer on this youtube video on it was 333 at the same time. I keep seeing it

The number 3, 33, 333 are significant it is said that the holy trinity is three and that christ was crucified at the age of 33 but also that his vibration was 333. I too have awakened to the clock reading 3: 33 and gone directly into meditation and experienced a peace and an awareness that is unmatched by anything I have ever experienced on earth. So I feel that the person who keeps seeing 333 is a blessed individual indeed and should embrace these numbers rather than fear them. Let them serve as a reminder that christ is always with you even until the end of time.
God Bless

I was born at 3:33AM and have been haunted by this number everywhere. No one understands when I tell them. They all think I look for it... Or that it's easy to pick out like 11:11... But I see it everywhere, like it's following me or trying to tell me something. I don't know if it's a good or bad thing. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

Dear MarleyLover: You are blessed to be seeing these numbers. The following Bible verses are for you to ponder:
Jeremiah 33:3 - Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.
Luke 11:11 - "Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?
--Jeremiah 33:3 is God's invitation for us to ask Him questions, seek Him for answers. He knows everything about us; our past, present and future. He wants us to ask Him and He wants to tell us.
Luke 11:11 comes from a part of the Bible:
Ask, Seek, Knock
…10"For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened.
Basically saying for anyone who asks, they will receive, anyone who seeks Him, they will find Him, and for anyone who knocks on His door, the door will be opened.
In Luke 11:11 He is saying, that if you ask for something, He will not give you something bad because God is love and He is a good God. He's asking you to ask Him for something [not sure what you've been wanting].
What a beautiful invitation from the Lord.

Basically, the same thing happened to me and, like you, wondered if it was bad. I did a google search and this website has been a guide for me. Hope it helps you too!...
I use the index often ...

I have been seeing 3:33 almost every time I look at a digital clock for quite a while now. I am not sure when it began, but as time goes on it is happening more frequently. I do not believe in coincidences. I believe everything happens for a when I began to notice that I was repeatedly seeing these numbers I knew it had to mean something. I would wake up in the middle of the night and my alarm clock would read 3:33...but it didn't happen all the time and I seldom wake up in the middle of the night. I would get into my car and as soon as I would start the engine the clock on my dashboard read 3:33. I would just glance at my cell phone and there it would be again...3:33. It began to scare me a little. I kept asking myself...what does this mean. It never happens with any other times or numbers. Then I just happened to watch the movie "The Fourth Kind" and every time the people who were abducted by aliens would wake up at 3:33am. Don't get me wrong...I in no way think I am being abducted by aliens...but it was odd to me because I keep seeing that exact number. So finally I decided to go online to try to figure out what it might mean. I'm still not exactly sure...but one explanation I found was that it means I am in the midst of a spiritual decision. This struck me because I have fallen away from God in the last few years...and my life has become very difficult. I lost my job a year ago and have been really struggling since... and I have been dealing with a lot of depression and sadness. I knew I needed to get close to God again... and I started talking about wanting to go to church again (haven't gone in a long time)... and praying more and reading my bible more. So the fact that this number... 3:33... may be a message to me about my spiritual decision really made sense. I have noticed that since I have come to that conclusion... I have not seen 3:33 since then! name is John and I live in Colorado..............I wanted to respond to your post because my story is almost exactly like yours.............the clincher for me was when I got in my car one day and after starting it, the gas mileage left for the tank of gas was 333 miles and it was 3:33 in the afternoon..........that was it!..........I thought "what is going on here"..............went to burger king one day (which I hardly ever do) and the check guest # was's been going on now for at least 2 years.............I am a Christian and feel I have also gotten away from God (but to be more accurate, it is church I have become disillusioned with, not the Lord). Was wondering if you are still experiencing this "strange" occurrence?......John M.

Dear jam1955: God doesn't care necessarily that you go to church. He wants a personal relationship with you. Church was never His original intent. He created us to be in a love relationship with Him. He's inviting you into a personal relationship with Him; church will be a by-product later if that's what He wants for you. Right now, He's inviting you into His heart.
Jeremiah 33:3 - Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.
Church is about fellowshipping with fellow believers. God doesn't need a building to divulge secrets, knowledge and wisdom. He gives it freely in your time alone with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found. It's a promise. God is so good and beautiful that He pursues us even when we forget about Him. He's pursuing you.

I don't have an answer but you are not alone. My step brother and I always see 3:33 all the time and have for years and I'm 48 years old now and have noticed it since I was in my late teens. Very weird for sure

What supernova guidance is this? My introduction to 333 started when I lived coeur d' alene, Idaho; It started with the time in the morning 3:33 After median and 3:33 Post median, 333 from advertisment, labeling package, also when I returned back to L.A. on Jan 1, 2011, the gas prices were 333; my personal experiences with 333 sometimes spook me, alleviated me, puzzled me and to this day I still have that experience with 333, I 've seen this number over 30 times.

I see it also n i dnt knw wat it means either

‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3
Think of it like this, the number 333 is your first bread crumb, Jeremiah 33:3, your second. It doesn't stop there though. God will give us bread crumbs, mysteries that we long to discover. He makes them into mysteries because he is inviting us to search after him, and during the search we grow and discover so much. Think of it as the ultimate game of hide and seek. God has a plan designed specifically for you and he longs for you discover it. Search for the next bread crumbs! How do you do this? through pray and faith. Trust in the Lord with all your Heart.

"I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me. ~ PROVERBS 8:17

Also, chakras, mastery of the self, mastering your own inner light, and so on... Devil bs to me ie, you are your own God, master yourself. That's exactly what Satanists do... lol. Smartest manipulator out there, you don't compare. ;)
