    Twelve Angels in Heaven.

    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.

    If you research 12, it is throughout the Bible. The reason is the Bible reflects God's creation. We also find it, as you say, in everyday life. It is more than a coincidence that twelve is a significant number.

    As for 13, it is considered to be an unlucky number. Is it just coincidental that Satan was the thirteenth angel?

    In one of my dreams posted on my dream thread I mentioned what I had seen in heaven. I saw twelve angels in circle around God.

    I am sure lexx will find some ridiculous comment or insult to make about twelve angels.

    So, what is your point? Do you ever have a point? Is your pencil sharp or is it always dull? Ha. Ha.

    Thanks for the Enoch reference. It reminded me of another dream about the number of angels. It happened a few years ago.

    I saw twelve angels together in two rows of six in a locket. A voice said, "We are locked onto God for all of eternity."

    I know about the Enoch book and its mention of giants on earth and angels selecting humans for mates. It certainly doesn't fit with what I have learned. What I know is all angels except Satan are in heaven. I don't know the explanation for stories about a large angel population. I just know what I have learned from my dreams, and, my personal experience with Satan which I listed on this forum. Remember, it was when I was in boot camp, I saw Satan's face in a wall mirror.

    I have just completed a rewrite of the story, here it is:

    "I was on a break walking down a street away from my barracks when I saw an eerie light coming from an open door in a building next to the sidewalk. It was an apartment complex for military personnel. I was curious, so I stepped inside. I turned to my right and saw a shiny mirror on the wall. I was shocked and anxious by what I saw. Glowing in the mirror was a bizarre luminous face; its lower jaw stretch down to a narrow slit of a mouth. With such a long narrow jaw, the face had an ugly appearance. Its dark penetrating eyes stared at me with strange hostility. I was overwhelmed; I was in the presence of an unfriendly spirit from another world. It was Satan!"

    The big problem, of course, is there is no empirical evidence for anyone's claims. However, I have found a good argument in Revelation for the number twelve.

    Re: Twelve Angels in Heaven.

    Here is additional evidence for the significance of the number TWELVE. As before, most of them are from the Bible.

    §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 high priest’s breastplate had 12 precious stones embedded within them.

    §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).

    You are correct. However, I believe the number twelve is referenced more often. There is no way to prove it, which is why there may be so much controversy.

    Re: Twelve Angels in Heaven.

    As for the number 12, we have a strong reference in Revelations.

    The Bible describes the 12 gates of heaven as being made of pearls. Each individual gate is made of one single enormous pearl. Each gate has the name of one of the 12 tribes of Israel etched into it: Asher, Benjamin, Dan, Gad, Issachar, Joseph, Judah, Levi, Nephtali, Reubon, Simeon and Zebulun. The 12 tribes of Israel were named after the sons of Jacob
