Twelve is referred to as the "Kingdom Number" because God used the twelve sons of Israel to established the Kingdom of Israel. Later in the New Testament, Lord Jesus used twelve Apostles to establish the Kingdom of Heaven. The number twelve is used in the description of the New Kingdom of Heaven having twelve gates, twelve angels, twelve foundations and twelve throne. One thing about the number twelve, it obviously represents divine authority, and appointment. It also serves as our governmental foundation, and in governmental principles.

"You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You." Isaiah 26:3 "Perfect Peace!" That is what we all want. That, too, is what Christ offers us in his gospel. Among his farewell words we find this bequest: "Peace I leave with you my peace I give unto you." After his return from the grave, he said to his disciples, three times repeating the same benediction, "Peace be unto you." Peace is thus part of the blessed evangel, and an essential element of the true and full Christian life. Christ desires us to have peace. If we do not have it we have missed part of the blessing of being a Christian, part of our inheritance as children of God. It is not a peculiar privilege which is only for a favored few; it is for everyone who believes in Christ and will accept it. In this blessed text you will find the path of the Peace of Christ.
