oh 12! What a fascinating number. There’s the 12 days of Christmas, the 12 tribes of Israel, the 12 innings in a baseball game. ( extra innings of course!) But really 12 is a number that is used a lot to show divine authority, governing perfection, and completeness. It is found as a multiple in all that has to do with rule – 60 minutes, 24 hours, 360 degrees, 12 donuts.
Some think today could be an Apocalyptic day with all of these twelves around. Just imagine the hysteria on 12/12/12 1212! Wow, what sort of day must that have been! And it seems to have turned out ok! But I did want you to know, if this is the end, I will not be posting tomorrow – especially not if there are Zombies around! You could be reading the last post ever. ( that is probably more likely next Friday, but more about that then!)
12 Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. Romans 12:12 New Living Translation (NLT)
