There are other mysteries that I have found in Revelation concerning the number 12 as it relates to Christ, and His Kingdom IN you.
Numbers, just like letters, words and sentences have their origin in the supernatural spirit world. Jesus is the Word. Words have sounds and frequencies and are the building blocks of everything that has been created. Everything has its origin in, “And God said …” Genesis 1
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things that are visible. (Heb 11:3) In other words God created everything through an invisible element called the WORD. Take note of the word “framed” as it relates to our mystical number twelve. 😊
For by Him (Jesus as The Word) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or powers, or rulers, or authorities, all things were created by Him and for Him. He is before all things and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from the dead, so that in everything He may have the supremacy. (Col 1:16-18)
Now, knowing that numbers have a spiritual meaning in heaven let’s look at the number twelve. An interesting thing about twelve is its mathematical mystery. A cube or square has twelve borders with six sides and has volume and mass or is able to contain substance or creation. Interestingly, the New Jerusalem is described as being a perfect square. Scripture says WE are a NEW CREATION. What mystery is hidden here? One of the rewards that Jesus said He would give to the overcomers is that He would write the name of this city upon them. What does that mean and why is such a gift so important?
Twelve represents God’s perfect governmental foundation.
You will find the number twelve all over Scripture but for the sake of this study I’m confining it to what we find in Revelation. Revelation reveals that there are 12 stars, 12 gates, 12 angels, 12 tribes, 12 foundations, 12 apostles, 12 precious stones, 12 pearls, 12 crops of fruit, and 12 months. Then there are multiples of 12 such as the 144000 sealed by God, 12000 from each tribe of Israel, and the dimensions of the city 12000 squared and its walls 144000 long, wide, high and deep. All of them have to do with heaven, its foundation and government. It is not a literal building or city but rather a new creation contained within a new spacial and governmental system.
By the way, 1000, represents eternal perfection. But more about that later.
The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever.” (Rev 11:15)
Question, has Jesus already gained this kingdom (government), if so when, and if not, when will He do so? To find out join me next time …
Please take some time to read Revelation 21 and see how many twelve’s or multiple of twelves you can find.
And did you take note of the word “framed?” It has to do with a square which represents the fulness of God’s eternal government.
