12 PAIRED NERVES = 24 ELDERS
The twelve tribes were assembled for war when they crossed the River Jordan to reclaim the promised land from the Canaanites. In like manner, the twelve cranial nerves of the mind must be sealed and mobilized to retake the land that has often been controlled by the 31 peripheral nerves of the reptilian type spinal cord system. There were 31 kings that the twelve tribes were told to conquer in order to retake the promised land. The list of these 31 kings of the flesh are listed below in Joshua chapter 12. Truly, as Paul wrote, the mind does war against the flesh and vice versa.
"The cranial nerves connect to the brain by passing through openings in the skull, or cranium. Nerves associated with the spinal cord pass through openings in the vertebral column and are called spinal nerves. Both cranial and spinal nerves consist of large numbers of processes that convey impulses to the central nervous system and also carry messages outward; the former processes are called afferent, the latter are called efferent
The cranial and spinal nerves are paired; the number in humans are 12 and 31, respectively."

Rolling Up Your Courts (Heavens)
roll them up in the timing of the spirit
HEB 1:10 and, 'Thou, at the beginning, Lord, the earth didst found, and a work of thy hands are the heavens;
11 these shall perish, and Thou dost remain, and all, as a garment, shall become old,
12 and as a mantle Thou shall roll them together, and they shall be changed, and Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail.' (YLT)
and a new earth:
and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
So, we have been on a long journey from the outer court through the sanctuary and the holiest place to finally emerge and stand upon the crystal sea. And most likely, many of us still have some parts of the journey ahead of us. But, at least, we have looked at the roadmap and now have some idea of what to expect as we go over the next hill.
We have looked at the subject of tribulation. And while we do hope that most of the tribulation is behind us, it would be unrealistic not to expect more in the future - simply because of the great potential that exists from nuclear bombs and bio-terrorism. When we give control of world events to the enemy of our soul, the prospectus of coming events is frightening and we become overwhelmed with fear. However, when we begin to look at tribulation as simply as process that God uses to cause mankind to forsake the carnal ways and turn to him, then faith, hope, and love begins to flow and we can then begin to cooperate with that process - for the scriptures tell us that we can have boldness in the day of judgment. More importantly, we must seek the Most High to find out what role that we are to play in the events coming upon the earth. For God is preparing a group of overcomers who will be there to assist the bulk of mankind as the veils are removed and the face of the Most High God, El Elyon, begins to be revealed to the people. This will be a group that has no fear of death for they are fully born of the Spirit [El Shaddai Wisdom's womb] and will be able to come and go (translate) as the wind.
JOH 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
This will be a group that is fully acquainted with the secret place of the Most High and know the natures and purposes of the Godhead. They will not be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow by day.
PSA 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High [ElElyon]shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty [El Shaddai].
2 I will say of the LORD [Yahweh], He is my refuge and my fortress: my God [Elohim]; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
This group has been given very special "attention" by the Lord in that they have already been through much tribulation. Like Job - they were working so hard to do everything right and please the Lord - and it seemed like everything went wrong. Their friends said, that if that is the results of the religion that you practice - I want none of it! But, what the world perceived as a curse upon them - was in the final analysis a blessing. But, you couldn't tell Job this when he was right in the middle of it. In the end, Job compassionately prayed for those who had castigated him, for they began to encounter tribulation of their own.
PIONEERS WITH "ANOTHER SPIRIT"
NUM 14:6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:
7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.
8 If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
NUM 14:24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.
The group of overcomers that God is training is not fearful of the "giants" of the land. Unlike the majority of the Hebrews were in the wilderness, they are ready to press on to the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus. A barrier to them is simply something to overcome rather than a fearful roadblock. We are reminded of the story of another pioneer who came up against a barrier - that had already resulted in the deaths of a number of test pilots. Every time the pilots hit a certain speed, the plane would begin to vibrate violently. If they backed off, the vibration would stop - but in some cases it was too late - for the plane had been damaged and the pilots crashed to their death. Chuck Yeager approached this barrier with a different idea - rather than hit the barrier and back off - he would accelerate through it. Much like Caleb and Joshua, he thought that he would reach the promised land of supersonic flight and he was not afraid of the giants. Like Esther, he determined to go forward. Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. EST 416 So Yeager formulated his plan and when hitting the sound barrier, he quickly accelerated through it in his Bell X-15 rocket plane. And, once through the turbulence, he reported that supersonic flight was so smooth "that your grandma could drink a glass of lemonade" without spilling it.

Yeager broke the sound barrier on October 14, 1947 and ushered in the era of supersonic flight. Fifty-five years and 12 days later, at the age of 79, he repeated this feat for one last time in his career. He truly was one that had "another spirit" as did Joshua, Caleb and Esther. For he looked death in the face and never blinked - a giant in the eyes of the world had become a grasshopper in his eyes. A sound barrier was broken and spiritually those that are deaf need to hear the voice of the Lord. And the sound of the cherubims' wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh. EZE 10:5 Curiously enough, within a short time of Yeager's flight, the Hebrews that had dwelt in the outer court were drawn back to Israel to establish a nation in 1948. At about the same time, in the United States, there began an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in great intensity. Has this movement establishing the voice of the Almighty God (ElShaddaiElohim) come to maturity and now God is about to do a new thing in the earth? Instead of the sound barrier, is the next barrier to be broken the "light barrier"?
The scriptures tell us that even though mankind thinks that he see, he still is blind. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: REV 317 Even in the physical realm, man is relatively blind. How so? Look at the electromagnetic spectrum shown below. Out of the entire range of wave lengths from the top to the bottom of the page, man only sees in the narrow little slot labeled below as "optical". In other words, there is an "unseen" world in which man can not see at all.
