    Twelve Angels in Heaven and in Revelation

    As evidence of twelve angels in heaven, we find the number twelve repeated throughout Revelation. Satan was God’s thirteenth angel. “Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives forever and ever.” Rev. 4:9. Multiplying the duality of God (2) by the number of angels (12), the results are 24. “Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all tribes of Israel." Multiple 12 times 12 and you get 144. Following the verse, twelve tribes of Israel are named with 12,000 members for each tribe. (Rev. 7:4).

    In Chapter 11 of Revelation, we have the two witnesses representing the "duality of God." The story of the two witnesses is the story of Jesus (God). Chapter 12 of Revelation is the story of God's angels led by Michael fighting Satan while God (Jesus) was in the world for 1,260 days (Chapter 11). In the same chapter, we have the woman (God) with twelve stars on her head. In the description of God's holy city, there are numerous references to twelve. “It had a great high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates.” Rev.21:12. “The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl.” Rev. 21:21. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. . . . and the twelfth amethyst. (Rev. 21:20). Amethyst is the final of twelve stones. An angel measured it. “He measured the city with a rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long.” He measured its walls and it was 144 cubits thick, (Rev. 21:16-17). Again, you multiple 12 times 12, the results is 144.

    For idiots, it means nothing. For those who can read and write, it is interesting to know there are twelve angels in heaven. The author of Revelation used twelve numerous times to represent God's angels.

    The possibilities are endless but how can we utilise this wonderful number? Do we get discounts for buying 12 items. Perhaps his eminence can enlighten us.

    Hey Earl. I passed your number on to Satan. I was telling him that you were tight with god and he suggested that perhaps you 3 could get together over a couple of beers and work shit out. I was thinking you could maybe put that meeting together. Did he call you yet?

    Re: Twelve Angels in Heaven and in Revelation

    You’ll find the number 12 used in 187 places in the Bible and there are some significances to this number as we will read. The number twelve seems to be very important to God and it represents, in most cases, the number of perfection and authority. The number 12 shows up in the Book of Revelation 22 times and are very important in that book and particularly in the New Jerusalem. Here are significances that are associated with the number 12.12; the Number of Completeness

    There were 12 tribes in Israel and this symbolizes the completeness of the nation Israel. Jacob had 12 sons which were the heads or fathers of each of the 12 tribes of Israel which are likened to 12 princes. When God appeared to Jacob He told him, “Your name will not be called Jacob any longer. From now on your name will be Israel” (Gen 35:10). The name Jacob means “supplanter” which means “to supersede by force or treachery” which is what Jacob did when he took Esau’s birthright for a bowl of stew (Gen 25:29-34) but now God is going to deal differently with Jacob because he repented of his supplanting ways and was now going to be called Israel, which in the Hebrew is “Yisra’el” and means “God prevails” which essentially means that Jacob stopped wresting with God because he could not prevail against God (Gen 32:22-32).Other Significances of the Number 12


    • Jesus chose 12 disciples who later became the 12 apostles which seem to fit the context of the number 12 used elsewhere in the Bible as this number also signified governmental rule or authority. The betrayer, Judas, was replaced by Matthias (Acts 1:23-26).
    • The New Jerusalem which descends out of heaven has 12 gates made of pearl which are manned by 12 angels. Each of the gates has been named after one of the 12 tribes of Israel.
    • In Revelation 7, twelve thousands from each of the 12 tribes of Israel will be saved near the end of the present world system.
    • The walls of the New Jerusalem are measured at 144 cubits high which is 12 multiplied (Rev 21:16).
    • The New City is also 12,000 furlongs squared (Rev 21:16).
    • There are 12 precious stones that will be used as the foundation of the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:19-20).
    • The wall of the city had 12 foundations with the 12 names of the apostles on each one (Rev 21:14).
    • Twelve thousand will be taken from the earth so that they may serve the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ (Rev 14:1-5).
    • The high priest’s breastplate had 12 precious stones embedded within them.
    • Jesus very first words were spoken at the age of 12 (Luke 2:42).
    • There was even a woman who had suffered from a blood hemorrhage for 12 years (Luke 8:40).
    • There are 12 Minor Prophets in the Old Testament. They are called minor, not because they are less important than the Major Prophets, but due to their size being considerably smaller.
    • There are 12 historical books in the Bible: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Sam, 2 Sam, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther.
    • There were 12 loaves of permanent offerings on the golden table (Lev 24:5).
    • There were 12 explorers or spies sent into the land of Canaan (Due 1:23).
    • Solomon had 12 administrators in his kingdom (1 Kings 4:7).
    • There were 12 men who laid 12 stones in building a monument to the Lord (Joshua 4:3).
    • The Book of Chronicles contained 12 great priests.
    • Twelve curses were indicated for disobedience to Israel (Duet 27).
    • A young Israelite male took 12 years before he could be admitted as a “son of the law.”
    • There were the 12 sacrifices of animals that were to be given (Numb 7, 29).

    The text above is conclusive evidence that any lunatic can find justification for their psychotic condition, obsession or criminal behaviour within the pages of the book known as the bible. This guy is a real live one.

    Ok. I’m going to keep this simple and straight to the point so that everybody can get it.
    The ancient duodecimal system of counting is the system of counting in 12. It has its origins in the use of the Finger bones (phalanges) of the hand to count using the thumb.

    There is no magical significance to this number. It was just practical and is still used in parts of Asia. Everybody try it.

    Now EARL you ignoramus, stop trying to create supportive hype for your psychotic visions and assumptions. You are just a 78 year old obsessed lunatic.
