Therefore of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning with the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection. Acts 1:21,22
Judas betrayed the Lord and was dead and that left eleven disciples, so why in the world would the remaining feel it necessary to pick a twelfth? Because twelve is the number of the government of God.
The supernatural church of the living God must be built according to the divine design or it will just be another dead, man-made work like so many today in the world. The number twelve also involves warfare in that if one can put a thousand to flight of the enemies of God, and two, ten thousand, twelve can put one hundred trillion to flight!Twelve represents power, authority and foundation for the body of Christ! Ref. Revelation 21:10-22
There are twelve hours that rule the day and twelve rule the night, twelve months rule the year and there were twelve disciples who became twelve apostles to rule the church and so on! There is supernatural power in the number twelve to rule and reign in God's kingdom come to earth!
"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine (word of God) and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock." Matthew 7:24
