Ten Horns with Crowns
|What Laws of Yehuveh Deal with Tens?
From our early training we assume this is an easy answer: the ten commandments, of course. We’ve been taught that “He [Yehuveh] wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments [H1697: words].” “He declared unto you His covenant, which He commanded you to perform, even ten commandments [H1697: words]; and He wrote them upon two tables of stone.” “He wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments [H1697: words].” Most of us would stop there and consider this discussion finished. However, such a conclusion is another part of the “lies” “we have inherited.” We have much more to re-discover. As noted in extensive detail by Revelation 21:14, there are twelve commandments, not ten. Furthermore, as discussed in regard to Scriptural Qabbalah, it was twelve words representing the twelve qualities of Yehuveh (His Elohim, twelve strengths) which were written on these stones, not commandments. That being said, what aspects of Yehuveh’s laws are discussed in tens? Absolutely none! Yehuveh never deals in units of tens! Herein lies the deception. Exodus 34:28; Deuteronomy 4:13; 10:4; Jeremiah 16:19.
From ancient times Yehuveh has counted, divided, multiplied, and administered His affairs using a base-twelve or dozenal numerical system. It is for this reason twelve plays so prominent a part in all aspects of Yehuveh’s communication and interaction with humanity. Take a good concordance and read every Scriptural use of the word twelve. You will find that Scriptures discuss twelve months in every year (2 Kings 25:27; 1 Chronicles 27:15; Esther 2:12; 3:7, 13; 8:12; 9:1; Ezekiel 32:1; Daniel 4:29); twelve wells (Exodus 15:27), twelve fountains (Numbers 33:9) and twelve palm trees in the wilderness (Exodus 15:27); Moses built twelve pillars in the wilderness (Exodus 24:4); twelve foundational commandments in Yehuveh’s law (Revelation 21:14; and presented in Exodus 20:3-20; Deuteronomy 5:7-21) represented by the twelve stone foundations of His restored city (Revelation 21:19-20), each supported by twelve statutes (Revelation 21:17); Ishmael had twelve sons (Genesis 17:20) termed twelve princes (Genesis 25:16); Jacob had twelve sons (Genesis 35:22; 42:13, 32; or study this in full in: Genesis 35:18; 29:31-35; 30:5-24; 46:8-27; 49:1-28; Exodus 1:1-5; 6:14-16; Numbers 1:5-15; 1:20 etc.; 2:3-33; 7:12 etc.; 26:5-51, 57-62; 34:14-28; Deuteronomy 33:1-29; Joshua 13:1-21:45; 1 Chronicles 2:1, 2; 12:23-40; 27:16-22; Ezekiel 48:1-35; Revelation 21:12) which gave rise to the twelve tribes in the nation of Israel (Genesis 49:28; Exodus 24:4; 28:21; 39:14; Numbers 31:5; Judges 19:29; 1 Kings 4:7; Ezekiel 47:13), which naturally giving rise to twelve tribal leaders (Numbers 1:44; Joshua 3:12; 4:2; Ezra 8:24; 8:35), twelve spies (Numbers 13:1-20; Deuteronomy 1:23) sent to explore the promised land, twelve rods used (Numbers 17:2, 6) to reveal Yehuveh’s chosen leadership, and national offerings in multiples of twelve (Numbers 7:3, 84, 86, 87; 29:17; Ezra 6:17); the high priest’s breastplate was adorned with twelve stones (Exodus 28:17-20; 39:10-13) with the names of the twelve tribes (Exodus 28:21; 39:14); twelve loaves of bread (Leviticus 24:5-6) were placed on the Table of Shewbread; altars were built with twelve unhewn stones (Joahua 4:3-9, 20; 1 Kings 18:31); twelve oxen supported the water basins (seas, lavers) in Solomon’s temple courtyard (1 Kings 7:25, 44; 2 Chronicles 4:4, 15; Jeremiah 52:20) and were used by Elisha for plowing (1 Kings 19:19); David’s appointed musicians and temple servants were all chosen in groups of twelve (1 Chronicles 25:1-31); twelve lions flanked the approach to Solomon’s throne (1 Kings 10:20; 2 Chronicles 9:19); Yehuveh used a garment torn into twelve pieces to describe the split of David’s kingdom (1 Kings 11:30); Yehuveh promises to seal twelve thousand of each of twelve of Israel’s tribes (Revelation 7:5-8); the heavenly woman sign of Revelation 12:1 has a “crown of twelve stars”; the New Jerusalem has twelve gates of twelve pearls (Revelation 21:12) attended by “twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel” permitting our entrance; the Lamb-king has twelve ambassadors (apostles, Revelation 21:14); twelve qualities or strengths (words, which is what was referenced in Exodus 34:28; Deuteronomy 4:13; 10:4 in the previous paragraph) in Scriptural Qabbalah (the twelve fruit of the tree of life, Revelation 22:2); and twelve signs or constellations in the Zadok Circle (repeatedly referenced in association with the twelve tribes of Israel: Numbers 2:1; Psalms 74:4, 9; 80:1; 99:1; Isaiah 11:5-8; 37:16; Jeremiah 10:2; Ezekiel 1:10; 10:14; Revelation 4:7)!
