“It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to search them out in order to discover them.”
During the past couple of weeks I have been pointing out some things that God has “concealed” in order to reveal the spiritual lesson He has hidden therein.
We have been looking specifically at the way God uses various numbers to both represent and express spiritual truths. Today, I want to consider the number 12.
This number, as God uses it in scripture, refers to His chosen people and His relationship to them. As such, it also refers to perfection of government, since all government is from God and is a key to how He relates to His people.
Twelve is the number of the people of God, the church, both in the Old Covenant Church of Israel and the New Covenant Church we know today.
