12 Tribes of Israel

12 Tribes of Israel

12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL: Abraham, whose name means faith, is considered the father of the nation of Israel. His son was Isaac, whose son was Jacob. Jacob's name was changed to Israel -- metaphysically, Israel means "striving for God, dominion with God, rulership with God".

Jacob had 12 sons, who were the progenitors of 12 tribes. These 12 sons were: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher and Joseph. (In some lists, Joseph's two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, replace Reuben and Joseph.) Metaphysically, each son/tribe represents a spiritual power. For example, Benjamin represents faith.

When the Israelites moved from the wilderness into Canaan, the Promised Land, each tribe was given a specific section of Israel to inhabit. Later, Jesus called 12 major disciples, each of which represent one power or tribe. Jesus prophesied that in the future when he sat on his throne of glory, others likewise would sit on 12 thrones and judge the 12 tribes of Israel. This is happening now.

In the "Book of Revelation 7:5-7," 144,000 elect appeared, composed of 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes, who were marked with God's seal on their foreheads.

Charles Fillmore wrote that the 12 thrones mentioned by Jesus referred to 12 powers, each of which had a throne or place in the body. These 12 thrones also are 12 major centers in the cerebrum, each of which have some 12 billion cells. When we sit on each such cerebral throne or center, we sit in judgment of, and govern, all the cells in that cerebral region (the "tribe" of such cells in that center). From each throne, we also judge and govern the function of the body organ(s) and system (which make up another type of "tribe")that the cerebral center oversees and regulates.

Outwardly, we also spiritually govern those in our tribe or country or region of the world, especially those in the segment of the whole tribe who have a similar background and mindset.

The 144,000 elect are the leaders and wayshowers and demonstrators of I Am or Christ consciousness in the new, worldwide, metaphysical nation of Israel, known as the New JerUSAlem or I Am Nation. Charles Fillmore wrote of the coming of such a spiritual, universal nation that is governed by cosmic, universal laws and principles.
