144 and the bible

It should be noted that the bible uses the number 144 a lot. Not that I am of that faith. Guess what size the Ark was? dimensions of the ark, 300 cubits by 50 by 30, approximately 137 by 23 by 14 meters (440 feet long, 73 feet wide, and 43 feet high), with three internal divisions

 Revelation 21:17
The angel measured the wall using human measurement, and it was 144 cubits thick.
Revelation 21:16-18 (in Context) Revelation 21

And this:

Revelation 7:1
[ 144,000 Sealed ] After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
Revelation 7:1-3 (in Context) Revelation 7   
 I mean get real did they have an obsession with the number 4 or what? Is it possible they were seeing the number back then?

  1. Ever thought that it might be a riddle and that the significance of the number is more a key than the actual riddle itself?,it might not even be a number,just a jigsaw puzzle piece that can resolve the image...
