The Mystery of Twelve-3
Genesis 49:28 “All these [are] the twelve tribes of Israel: and this [is it] that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.”
1 Kings 4:7 “Solomon had twelve regional managers distributed throughout Israel. They were responsible for supplying provisions for the king and his administration. Each was in charge of bringing supplies for one month of the year.”
Luke 2:42 “And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.”
7. Solomon had 12 administrators in his kingdom (1 Kings 4:7).
1Ki. 4:7 “And Solomon had twelve officers over all Israel, which provided victuals for the king and his household: each man his month in a year made provision”
Those are few examples of the occurrence of the number in the bible. Now, what does this number represent?
Bible scholars summed up these occurrences and gave some spiritual meanings of the number twelve.
The meaning of 12, which is considered a perfect number, is that it symbolizes God’s power and authority, as well as serving as a perfect governmental foundation. It also symbolizes completeness and Divine judgement!
If you multiply 3 by 4 you get 12. Three is the number of Trinity, representing the God head while four is the number of the earth. In Genesis 1:14-19, which was the fourth day, God set the earth rolling. He sorted our day and night, put the firmament in place, the principle of seasons, days, night and time was put in place. We also have the concept of North, South, East and West. All these were done on the fourth day, so four represents the earth.
Twelve is the Trinity (3) coming over earth (4), to perfect it and make it functional by putting order in place! There was a perfect restoration of order on a chaotic world on day 4.
