After this the SON begot twelve young ones on a cycle wave at which we can only guess. But they were to complement the cycle of the Twins:
* "These are the sons of Israel: Reubin, Simeon,
* Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulon, Dan., Joseph,
* Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad and Asher" - 1 Chr 2:1-2
Twelve more were begotten on a somewhat similar cycle wave, complementary to Ishmael. Whether these were begotten by the FATHER or by the SON is not too clear from the 'shadow' portrayal…. One might be prone to surmise them begotten by the FATHER, since 'Ishmael' was HIS. Yet this is far from certain in the writers mind. Nevertheless, it is quite immaterial to us now.
* "As for Ishmael I have heard the twelve princes shall he
* beget." ----Gen 17:20; see also Gen 25:13-15 for their names.
These two twelves total 24, constituting the chamber of counselors or judges; that is, counselors unto messenger spirits of lower ranks, judging in matters over which they preside.
* "And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and
* upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in
* white clothing; and they had on their heads crowns of gold." Rev 4:4
Altho we read in Scripture of Ishmael and Jacob begetting sons, this is not intended to portray that the various begotten spirits by FATHER and SON begot children of their own. In Heaven as on earth, there is a maturity essential to beget one's own. As yet the FATHER and SON alone have this LIFE. But the beings typified by the descendants of Jacob, Ishmael and of the patriarchs, were those begotten in complementary cycle waves to that of their venerable elders; and essential to complete the governmental hierarchy in the heavenlies.
The Shining One (otherwise known as lucifer) was eventually placed in charge of gases enveloping planets (see Eph 2:2). His younger brother remained close to Father; in time being appointed Head over the younger brethren: we might even call him the Minister-general of Education (unto the angelic host).
The seven spirits before the throne are otherwise referred to as Archangels. They are supervisors, or Heads of Departments. The twenty-four elders under them evaluate, and give counsel to younger Chiefs.
Outside the FATHER (Who Is 'one with the Son'), these specified total 34. But assigned to the life-waves on earth, there are 66 more, totaling 100. This is revealed to us thru a study of the glands and nerve-ganglias of the human body and as correlated to the Mosaic Tabernacle. It is also alluded to in Gen 26:46 as the number of 'the souls were 36' which 'came with Jacob into Egypt.'
