THE CHARACTER OF THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL AND THE CHARACTER OF THE 144000
- The similitude between the character of the twelve tribes of Israel and
- Through the plan of salvation: justification, sanctification,
purification and glorification, the character is brought to perfection.
- Any other character study is a counterfeit of the way the Savior evaluates
our characters with the Law of God.
The law of God is the standard of the judgment at the time of the
Investigative Judgment. Any other way of evaluating the character and
categorizing it, for example in: sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic or
melancholic, is a depressing counterfeit of the enemy of souls to keep the
mind in a state of predestination, giving no hope that the character can be
transformed and changed through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Although these traits of character may exist and may be identified as a
general overall representation of the different types of character in
individuals, this pattern or way of thinking and being can be changed as
demonstrated through the study of the brain nerves in the previous files 5,
11, 17 and 22.
Through the study of the twelve tribes, as first presented in Genesis 49 and
last heard of in Revelation 7 and 21, it behooves us to take heed how the
Creator of all men, through the mighty power of the Holy Spirit, can
transform a group of twelve men having major defects of character, ending up
having their names written on the twelve gates of the Holy City, on the
earth made new.
NAMES OF THE TWELVE TRIBES IN GENESIS 49 COMPARED TO THE NAMES OF THOSE
MENTIONNED IN REVELATION 7
|GENESIS 49 AND
*The tribe of Dan is missing at the end and is replaced by the name of the
eldest son of Joseph who received part of the Double Portion.
**Instead of Joseph's name, it should show the name of Ephraim who received
the birthright rather than Manasseh; however unlike is uncle Esau, Manasseh
did nothing to forfeit his privileges in the family blessing. The Bible says
that Jacob blessed Ephraim the younger son of Joseph in place of Manasseh
(Gen. 48:17), to the dismay of Joseph. Ephraim could have had his name on
one of the gates of the Holy City but the Bible clearly gives the reason of
this absence: "Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone." Hosea 4: 17.
