5 – The Grace of God
12 – Perfect Government

Amos 5:12 (NKJV) For I know your manifold transgressions, and your mighty sins: Afflicting the just and taking bribes; Diverting the poor from justice at the gate.


Well, hello, my friends! Grace and peace to you. Amos was a prophet used by God to show social injustices among the Israelites. Seeing the just of the Lord were afflicted and that bribes were commonplace; he called the people to repent!

When we turn to Jesus and repent, His blood becomes our justification! This is not just a religious term but a powerful declaration of our innocence. Today, in the Courts of Heaven, the gavel slams down, closing the case for those who believe in Jesus and His redemptive work on the cross. This Truth, this Power, redeems us in our darkest hours. Remember, God is not intimidated by our messes!

Deuteronomy 20:4 (KJV) For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

Luke 17:21 (KJV) Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

In Luke, Jesus speaks to the Pharisees who want to see the Kingdom of God through observation. He responded that the Kingdom is not here or there; IT IS WITHIN YOU! Selah! The fullness of the Kingdom is literally in YOU!

Declaration: In the day of trouble, I have the Kingdom of God, in the fullness of His power and delegated authority, to take down Satan’s attacks. I choose God’s government. God sees what is happening and goes before me to save me.

From My Books: Numbers That Preach

More Information on Numbers That Preach: 5 & 12:
5 – The Grace of God (This number has to do with the favor of God. It marks the place where God gives us the ability to overcome something)
12 – Perfect Government (Twelve is the last of the four numbers God uses to show His perfection. The number shows God is in control and actively ruling over something as King. When God wants to show us that He is ruling and that there is a perfect plan, He likes to use 12 in His language.)
