Series 2 - Lesson 7 - Annotation 1
Explain the significance of the number twelve as used in the Scriptures.
1. The number twelve as used in the Scriptures represents spiritual fulfillment, completion, wholeness. Man has twelve spiritual faculties, twelve centers of consciousness. When these faculties are fully expressed, man is in conscious at-one-ment with God, his source, and the resultant manifestation is fulfillment—completion, wholeness, perfection in all areas of his life.
