Why 12 Advisory Board Members?
The meaning of the number ‘12’, which is considered a perfect number, is that it symbolizes God’s power and authority, as well as serving as a perfect governmental foundation. It can also symbolize completeness of the nation of Israel as a whole. Jacob (Israel) had twelve sons, each of which represented a tribe making 12 tribes of Israel (10 of which must be restored) in order to reach completeness in the Nation of the God of Israel.
There are 12 precious stones in the High Priest’s Breast Plate in the temple, representing the 12 Tribes, each with their own unique human characteristics and culture – together forming the completeness of humanity in the Image of God.
‘12’ represents totality, wholeness, and the completion of God’s purpose. There are 12 tribes of Israel (10 of which must be restored), 12 months in the year, and 12 houses of the zodiac. The “Code of Jewish Law” teaches that ideally, every synagogue should have 12 windows, thereby recognizing diversity in people to make up the complete Body of God’s Nation.
In pursuance of completeness, The COI Advisory Board is made up of 6 representatives from the House of judah and 6 from the House of Israel (Ephraim / Yoseph / 10-Israel / Lost 10 Tribes in process of re-identifying in fulfillment of the Skeleton of Ezekiel 37 that has to come to Life!).
DISCLAIMER – Being Board Members of COI in no way implies that these members share the same religious beliefs. They are common on one ground only: That the Redemption of Israel has to take place eventually and according to the Will of the Creator God of Israel and they offer their support to make this a reality.
