Which tribe are you from?
Numbers 1:4 -
And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house of his fathers.
When the Lord led the Israelites to their promise land He segregated them into 12 tribes and the tribes were allocated their inheritance in the Promise Land according to their tribes. This is one area a lot of understanding is required - the twelve tribes of Israel.
We know the Israelites symbolize the people of God and the promise land symbolizes Heaven. Most people think that the twelve tribes were to do with the Jews and not the believers. All assume that at the end the Jews will accept Christ and enter Heaven therefore in Revelations it is written about the 12 tribes.
I knew in the start there was more to this and it was only a few months back the Lord made me understand the twelve tribes were to do with the twelve Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit.
When the Lord made the dress of the High priest He put stones according to the tribes on the breast plate of the High priest. If one compares them with the stones of which Heaven is made in the book of Revelation they will find them the same (either identical or of the similar kind).
Even the numbers of Apostles Jesus selected were 12, and when Judas died he was replaced so as to keep the count 12. Numbers in the Bible are symbolic to what they represent.
As we know Heaven is a spiritual place not an earthly place to be made of gold and precious stones, so as the Lord led me to study and understand the stones, I studied some of them and found them symbolizing the Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit i.e. the stone ruby also known as blood stone symbolizes righteousness and onyx stone which has various colorful parallel layers symbolizes wisdom (I have done very little study in this area and a lot is there to understood here).
When God showed Abraham his generations He showed him the stars and compared his generations indirectly to the stars. We also read the stars symbolize the Angels and stars too are grouped into 12 sections in astronomy. Satan knowing the secrets of Heaven and tries to distort the truth and makes man to believe in astrology and births signs.
What I also found that, when we come in the Lord most areas of weakness the Lord takes away but gets us to overcome a particular area in our lives for which He says his grace is sufficient. It is this area which connects us to the tribe we belong (no confirmation on this yet).
In today's scripture the Lord is assuring us that by His help we will surely be victorious in our areas of weakness. It is not we who can do it but by Him (Holy Spirit) alone we can.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are Almighty God and nothing is impossible to You. When You created creation and set forth your plans to overcome darkness, even the Angels were baffled as to how You would do it. You use mere insignificant man to overcome the mighty fallen angels. It is your light which shines in us and overcomes darkness. We thank You Lord for finding us worthy to be part of your great plans and in return blessing us and prospering us unto unimaginable inheritance...
We thank You in Jesus' Name, Amen.

1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
