THE “NEW MATH” . . . THE BIBLE HAD IT BEFORE IT WAS DISCOVERED IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

For those of you who LOVE MATH – and for those who HATE MATH (the latter need not advance to New Math) – you’re on!  And, since this is likewise a personal response to Scott Harwell’s comment (iron hopefully sharpening iron here of late), I hope you don’t mind listening in on it.  It started out with a discussion of the year of Jubilee . . . but meandered all over the place . . . but I think you’ll be somewhat entertained and you might just learn something “new” here too.

ROSH HASHANAH & THE YEAR OF JUBILEE – THE “LONG AND THE SHORT OF IT” – 

Scott – my understanding is that of the traditional Jewish configuration is that the Religious year (Rosh Hashanah – head of the year) begins in the spring on 1 Nisan – the day they say that Adam’s creation took place and of course the Passover followed on 13/14-14/15 Nisan (thus, the Festival Calendar).  The commencement of the Civil Year begins on 1 Tishrei (again, Rosh Hashanah).  The idea of the Civil year’s commencement took hold primarily among the Jews of Judah during the Babylonian Captivity.  

The short count Jubilee Cycle is 49 years and the long count Jubilee Cycle is 50 years – taken, of course, from Leviticus 25:8-55; 27:17-24; Eze 46:17.  The decree of Cyrus the Great, which historians say was in the year 537 BC (the 70-year Judah Captivity started when then Viceroy Nebuchadnezzar assaulted Judah and took captive the “cream of the crop” of young leaders like Daniel and the 3 who entered the furnace in Babylon) in 607 BC and extended unto King Cyrus the Great’s Decree in 537 BC (with Jerusalem’s 9th of Av demise in 586 BC) which gives us a 70-year captivity (607/8 BCE to 537 BCE = 70 years of Captivity).  

Now, the short count can be seen when we take: 5,880/ years ÷ 49 years = 120 sets + 120 years (Moses’ life span) = 6,000 years or 6,000 years/50 Long count Jubilee Cycles = 120 such cycles – as per Scott’s favorite accounting).  Moses’ age at “graduation” was 120 years.  Again, my creation date of Adam was in the year 3975 BC.  Therefore, the following:

5 X 490 years (Epical Jubilee Cycles) = 2,450 years (Moses’ birth date occurred at the end of these 2,450 years or, based on 3975 BC less 2450 years = 1525 BC (birth of Moses) + Moses’ life span of 120 years = 1405 BC (the year the Israelites crossed the Jordan River into the Good Land, the Land of Canaan).

That would leave us the remaining epical Jubilee Cycles of 490 years to be 7 such cycles or:

7 X 490 years = 3,430 years – thus we calculate:  2,450 years (to Moses’ birth) + 120 years (Moses’ life span) + 3,430 years = 6,000 years – TIME’S UP!

So, 3975 + 2021 = 5,996 years which is 4/5 years short of 6,000 – what happens then?  I know, John Haller’s silence in heaven for 1/2-hour (Rev. 8:1), giving us (me) time to adjust my prophetic calendar!  

GENESIS 6:3 and Moses Days & the Year of Jubilee


THE 12 EPICAL JUBILEE CYCLES 490 YEARS EA. + MOSES' 120 YEARS

Without total agreement on these dates, I can no longer have fellowship with you – JUST KIDDING!  There is wide latitude among us all–we must NOT allow such configuration to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord!  But I sure like these configurations!  Also, I like Moses in the Torah who used, I believe, Genesis 6:3 to elaborate upon “man’s days are numbered – and he is measured” (the title of my book, by the way:  SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS AND ON THE EARTH, MAN’S DAYS ARE NUMBERED AND HE IS MEASURED – obscene plug for my book).

The verse in Gen. 6:3 is a mathematical “word problem” – so for all of you who hate math – allow me:  While everyone is mesmerized by the “Nephilim verse” in Genesis 6:4–I am mesmerized by the verse which comes before it!  Naturally, what do Giants, like Goliath have to do with math anyway – although, interestingly enough, Goliath measured 6 cubits and a span (1 Sam. 17:4) and since I affirm that Hebrew Sacred Cubit (HSC) to be 2.1 feet – he was 12.6 ft. tall – no, don’t forget the span which I affirm to be 3.6 inches (based on the research of famed Assyriologist Julius Oppert); therefore, this monster was 12.6 ft. + 3.6 inches (a span of one’s palm) = 12 ft. 9 1/2 inches tall.  Or, put another way, the “126” portion separated out from Goliath’s measurement MAY have something to do with the “measure of the rod/reed”–the measure of a man/Man as we find later throughout Scripture [e.g., 1,260 days, 42 months, etc.) and the 3.6 inches MAY have something of the divine imprint upon it as in 360 degrees in a circle without beginning or ending – an insignia of the Eternal God and, also, the 3 1/2 years (3 years 6 months) of our Lord’s ministry upon the earth – so that Goliath was the “measure of a man” being 12.6 inches tall but was leveled by the 3.6 additional span . . . but I digress (setting you up for the 2.1 ft. or 25.20-inch Hebrew Sacred cubit’s measurement).

My Spirit will not contend with humans forever [Note – not just those of the pre-Noahic earth, either – but all of us], for they are mortal [now here’s the punch line which discloses Moses’ birth date and these Epical Jubilee Cycles of 490 years]; THEIR DAYS WILL BE A HUNDRED AND TWENTY YEARS” (Gen. 6:3).  Well, for one, that is precisely how long Moses lived – in other words “their days” alluded to Moses’ days – seems fair enough.  But the “word problem” from my objective studies of the Hebrew from those who maintain a modicum of Hebraic knowledge read the verse in this manner (and let me put this in mathematical terminology you can hopefully grasp):

“I’m thinking of an original number set which was DOUBLED and then that original number set was multiplied by 100 – what is that original number set?”  Yikes!  What number set could Moses have considered that was doubled and that same original number set was multiplied by 100 that would have any bearing on Moses’ birth and ultimate death?  For one, that original number set was doubled–giving us two distinct number sets with the second one multiplied by 2 but leaving the original number set multiplied by 100 for some inexplicable reason?  No – here goes:

I believe the original number set was 49 (the 7 * 7 = 49)–the short count Jubilee cycle of “49” (Lev. 25:8-9) – which was in the above equation expressed as “DOUBLED” – therefore if “49” were doubled from its original number set we would simply divide it by 2 to arrive at the original number set expressed in decimals as in 49 ÷ 2 = 24.50 which would be the original number set that was doubled or 24.50 * 2 = 49.

Now, don’t forget, the original number set of 24.50 is multiplied by 100 – and since all this is expressed in “years” – we find that 24.50 * 100 years = 2,450 years – that would mean that from 3975 BCE (or BC–take your preference) less 2,450 years = 1525 BCE (the birth date of Moses who was given 120 years to live on this planet – leaving it in 1405 BCE – the crossing of the River Jordan by the Israelites) or 2,450 years ÷ 490 years = 5 Epical Jubilee Cycles + 120 years of Moses’ life span + 7 more Epical Jubilee Cycles (10 X 49 = 490 years) which total 12 Epical Jubilee Cycles bearing 490 years each – God likes “12” or 3 [GOD] X 4 [CREATION] = 12) or 7 * 490 years = 3,430 years + 2,450 years + 120 years = 6,000 years.  In that, as well, there is in Moses’ “12” (120 years of age) and these 12 Epical Jubilee Cycles produce several 12’s–do you see a “24” (12 +12 = 24) and a 12 * 12 = 144 in there somewhere?  I think so.  

The Second Temple’s Dedication and Rededication – the Universal Menorah


Zechariah's Universal Lampstand - Zechariah 4

Zechariah’s accounting and vision of the “Universal Menorah/Lampstand” with its 7 Lamps and 7 conduits each to this circular marvel total 49 conduits and the famous “Not by might nor by power but by My Spirit, saith the LORD” (Zech 4:6) alludes, as well, not only to the “short count” Jubilee (Freedom) Cycle but also to the 49 years in which the Second Temple commenced its foundation unto its dedication (there being an actual 21 years of construction and 28 years of “frustration/delay” in its building) – by my chronological accounting the commencement and the ultimate dedication of the Second Temple took place between 537/538 BC and 488 BC – a total of 49 years which is symbolized in these 49 conduits of the Universal Menorah.

“Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens’ . . . After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The peoples of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him (i.e., “the desolator”).”

Thus, the first 49 years constitute the first “seven sevens” (these are known as heptad) – so, 7 * 7 = 49 years (537/8 BC to 487/8 BC). Then there is a gap between the first 7 weeks (the first 49 years) and the 62 weeks. Since these 7’s or heptad per week constitute 7 per week and there are 62 weeks we simply multiply 62 * 7 = 434 years. Still, there is a remaining week or 7 years bringing us to a total of 7 + 62 + 1 = 70 Weeks. The 62 weeks is directly connected to the Messiah, the “Anointed One” known as the “ruler” or the “prince in that “After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing.” According to Exodus 12:1-7 the “Pascal Lamb” from the 10th of Nisan until the 14 of Nisan it would be inspected until the utterance of Pilate: “I find no fault in Him” – for He was and is the spotless Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Yes, the Messiah, the Anointed One was “cut off” – was “put to death” and appears to have nothing–but look again, He arose from the dead in victory, in Life! At issue was in what year was He crucified? Also, when did this Anointed One recognized as the “ruler” – the “prince who is to come?”

Without going into great detail–I believe it was in 33 AD (perhaps 32 AD) when the “Anointed One” was “put to death” but that would mean some 434 years that we should count backwards to account for these 62 weeks. His being put to death (crucified) occurred at Passover whereupon His recognition as “the prince who is to come” – the Messiah – would have entered Jerusalem, which He did, and was heralded as Israel’s Messiah–the Anointed One (aka, the Triumphal Entry), which I believe was on Palm Sunday, 10 Nisan, in the Julian Calendar year of 33 AD (first three months into that year) – thus fulfilling the 4-days inspection of the Lamb prior to the Lamb being slain in accordance with the “Passover Lamb” (Exodus 12:3, 6). Thus, counting backwards we would have a 1 BC and a 1 AD account for two years in “astronomical time” but 1 year in “terrestrial time” wherein 1 BC accounts for the first 6 months of this peculiarity and 1 AD accounts for the latter half of that “year.”

Let’s say we use the astronomical time sequence – then, 33 AD less 434 years (62 weeks) = 400/401 BC. Therefore, from 488 BC to cir. 400 BC there is an initial (at a minimum) 88-year gap between the 7 weeks and the commencement of the 62 weeks in the year 400 BC.

Since 33 AD there has, in the year 2021 AD, been the second gap (from a total of 69 weeks unto the present time until we come to the final week, the 70th Week of Daniel) which now totals 1988 years (second gap).

Thus, in 488 BC the Feast of Dedication was “foreseen” – it being, as well, prophetically indicated at least by the prophet Haggai in his brief text:  “On the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month (that would be the month of Kislev in that Tishrei is the 7th month on the Religious Calendar of the Hebrew Sacred Calendar; then the month of Cheshvan or eighth month, and then Kislev being the ninth month) . . . from this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the LORD’s temple was laid . . . from this day on I will bless you . . . The word of the LORD came to Haggai a second time on the twenty-fourth day of the month . . on that day, declares the LORD Almighty, ‘I will take you, my servant Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you,’ declares the LORD Almighty.” (excerpts from Haggai 2:10 onward).

A final thought – the “21” years of actual construction (determined by sundry accounting in the minor prophets) is a fractal/resemblance in feet of the Hebrew Sacred Cubit, once again being 2.1 feet or “21.” 

THE “324” 

Astonishing, isn’t it, that Haggai prophetically, in marvelous adumbrative language indicates the ultimate Feast of Dedication which is the 8th major Festival directly connected to Yeshua’s declaration of the same in John 10:22-39 where the contestation between Him and “His Jewish opponents” (Jo. 10:31) took place in that they declared:  “‘We are not stoning you for any good work,’ they replied, ‘but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.'” (Jo. 10:33).  We can see, I affirm, from the Festival of Dedication official inaugurated/commemorated during Judas Maccabeus’ rededication/cleansing of the Second Temple from the Hellenic influences of Antiochus IV Epiphanes (Jewish Wars from 168-164 BC) – thus in December, 164 BC (24/25 December) was the Second Temple cleansed and rededicated (Hanukkah means Dedication – interestingly enough some 324 years AFTER the first dedication of the Second Temple in 488 BCE (488 – 164 = 324).

I am somewhat fascinated by the number set here of “324” in that if the Hebrew Sacred Cubit’s 2.1 Ft. length or 25.20 inches (7 * 360 degree rotations of the earth = 2520 degrees – I know “apples to oranges” – so it would appear, but…) then the “Wall of the New Jerusalem” and the base perimeter (4 edges) of the Great Pyramid of Giza [GPG] (Isa. 19:19 – at the border or GIZA of Egypt) equally bear the insignia of the “324”) in that the 144 Cubit Wall of the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:17) is 144 HSC (Hebrew Sacred Cubits) X 2.1 ft. = 3,024 ft. (or “324”) and the 4 base edges of the Great Pyramid of Giza as determined by the famed metrologist, Sir William Flinders Petrie, is that of 756 ft. * 4 (base edges) = 3,024 ft.  By the elimination of zero we arrive at the same absolutes of “324” – coincidence?  I don’t think so – all these KAWINKIDINK point to the ultimate Messianic Rule & Reign of the Son of David upon His Throne–the Millenarian bliss which awaits a war-weary and confused world in which we live!

The Egyptian Royal Cubit vs. the Hebrew, Assyrian and Persian Royal Cubits

I know that our dear brother, Dr. Doug Hamp, is somewhat convinced that the Egyptian Royal Cubit (aka the “mahe“) of some 20.6/20.64 inches determined the building of the GPG in that the French and their preposterous and deceitful use of their invention affectionately called “the metric system” – base-10 – instead of the duodecimal system of base-12 (divinely ordained 12 evening hours and 12 morning [day] hours) = 24 hours. Please note: the French and their bloody revolution and attempts to make all things void of the divine imprint–the so-called French Enlightenment attempted to give us a 10-day week which was an abysmal failure . . . did someone say change dates (“He (the Willful King) will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws“–Dan. 7:25).

This “discovery” of the French was recently hailed when a centimeter (equal to 100 millimeters or mm) was discovered to be the diameter of a droplet of water from, no less, the Nile River!  Placed side-by-side it was determined that the Egyptian Royal Cubit (ERC) of 20.61 (or up to 20.83 in) inches would need somewhere between 523-525 mm (or 52 cm) – and this measurement was somewhat validated by the use of 7 “palms” bearing 4 hand digits each wherein one would discover that 20.62 ÷ 7 = 2.95 inches (or we could get it up to 3 inches quite easily) = 1 palm.  Regardless, the 20.61 ERC juxtaposed/integrated with the 756 ft. edge of the GPG would look something like this: 756 ft. * 12 in. = 9,072 in. ÷ 20.61 = 440.174672489 or 440 (rounded down) ERC with a base perimeter taking some 1,670.70 ERCs (440.18 * 4).

Where by use of the HSC’s 2.1 ft. we find that 756 ft. ÷ 2.1 ft. (HSC) = 360 HSC * 4 base edges of the GPG = 1,440 HSC. Here we see the “360” and the “144” in total clarity. Likewise, if we were to add these two fractals together as in 360 + 144 we will find it equal to “504” which in turn divided by 2 = 252 which, again, reflects in inches the HSC’s 25.20 inches.

That configuration is certainly NOT what Ezekiel had in mind in Ezekiel 40:5 when he was given a MEASURING ROD which was accounted as SIX ROYAL CUBITS (configured after the measurements of the Hebrew, the Assyrian Royal, and Persian Royal Cubits).  This HSC measurement of the Royal Cubit (or HSC) is likewise given in Ezk. 40:5 to be that of ONE STANDARD CUBIT (measured as 21.6 inches) + one span or palm – this “span” or “palm” was determined to be 3.6 inches (as well as the Standard Cubit of the Assyrians and the Persians); therefore, using the Standard Cubit of 21.6 inches + 3.6 inches (the span) = 25.20 inches divided by 12 inches = 2.1 ft. 

One may touch or view the measuring length of the Egyptian Royal Cubit in the British Royal Museum – the claim that this is the first and earliest standard measurement, I believe, is altogether erroneous in that Noah’s Ark bears the earliest recollection of the Sacred Cubit – and its proximity to Assyria and Persia, I believe, transferred that proper measurement of the cubit which was utilized in the measurements of the Solomonic Temple and many other utensils including the Mystical Sea of Caste Bronze (laver). 

The 3.6 in. “span” or “palm” was calibrated by the famed Assyriologist, Julius Oppert, with the Royal Cubits of the aforesaid in the region to be that of 25.20 inches–he did not use the metric system – nor did Sir Petrie.  Oppert, by the way, was born of Jewish parents in Hamburg, Germany (no need to show his discoveries in writing here–too much information but suffice it to say they are substantial and validate my claims–otherwise I wouldn’t use them!).

The 12.6 Ft. Measuring Rod & the 1,260 Days of John’s Revelation & 3 1/2 Years of Jesus’ Ministry, His Testimony

The “measuring rod” given to Ezekiel to measure the Holy City/Holy District and the one given to John in Revelation 11 and again seen as “golden” in Revelation 21–measure the Temple, the Altar, the Worshipers and finally the very New Jerusalem, the Holy City, as well–I believe to be the SAME measurement/length of 12.6 ft.  The testimony of the Two Witnesses endures unhindered for 1,260 days (Rev. 11) and so does the persecution of the “holy people” (aka, the “saints”) for 42 months in Revelation 13 via the Beast (both sets are similar in that 42 mos. * 30 prophetic days in a month = 1,260 days – thus the full 70th Week of Daniel).  These 1,260 days are fractals of the 12.6 ft. measuring Rod in the hands of Ezekiel and John (sometimes I wonder if Moses’ STAFF (ROD) was of the same length – just my musings).  

That rod/reed was 6 HSC or 6 * 2.1 ft. = 12.6 feet or the “126” as a mathematical fractal/resemblance of the 1,260 days or “126” via the removal of zero.  This “42” or “1260-days” I believe is the very TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST for His ministry – as it appears in the Gospel of John extended from the Day of Atonement (Tishrei 10) in John the Baptist’s declaration:  BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD + 4 separate Passover dates (3 precise 1 inferred) – therefore in that there are 6 months (approx.) between Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and any Passover – then there would have been 3 1/2 years of earthly ministry or these 1,260 days or 42 months – thus, the “measuring rod” is 12.6 ft. and demonstrates the “MEASURE OF CHRIST” is the Standard by which all of us should be measured–and, whatever is measured by this Standard is owned by the LORD God Almighty!  Note:  John’s 7 “Festival Days” can be seen in and ultimately highlight Jesus’ 1,260-day ministry:

(1) John 1:29 (by inference – Day of Atonement)

6 months of ministry

(2) John 2:13, 23 (Passover)

12 months of ministry (total = 6 + 12 = 18 months)

(3) John 5:1 (This Jewish festival is referred to as “one of the Jewish festivals” – meaning “one of the 7 festivals” – and by inference I feel it was likewise a Passover – therefore, Jesus had ministered for two such Passovers or now for 1 1/2 years)

12 months of ministry (total = 6 + 12 + 12 = 30 months)

(4) John 6:4 (Passover)

6 months of ministry (total = 6 + 12 + 12 + 6 =36 months)

(5) John 7:2 (Feast of Tabernacles) = (Nisan 14 to Tishrei 15 = 6 months)

70 days of ministry (total = 6 + 12 + 12 + 6 + 70 days = 36 months + 70 days [2 mos. + 12 days)

(6) John 10:22 (Feast of Dedication – 24/25 Kislev or Tishrei 15 to 25 Kislev = 70 days – most interesting “70” here)

110 days of ministry (total = 6 + 12 + 12 + 6 + 70 days + 110 days [or 6 months])

(7) John 12:1 (Passover – His fourth and final or from Kislev 25 to Nisan 14 some 110 days) = 1,150 days + 110 days = 1,260 “Prophetic Days” of earthly ministry or 3 1/2 years or 42 months or time, times and half a time – this is the TESTIMONY OF JESUS.

TOTAL: 6 + 12 + 12 + 6 + 6 = 42 months or 1,260 prophet days or 3 1/2 years


THE 1260-DAY MINISTRY OF JESUS ON EARTH

This is the STANDARD OF MEASUREMENT – “To EQUIP his people for works of service, so that the BODY OF CHRIST may be built up until we all reach UNITY IN THE FAITH and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the WHOLE MEASURE of the fullness of Christ” (Eph.4:12-13-NIV). Are not these 1,260 days of the TESTIMONY OF JESUS the FULL MEASURE by which we should be measured? That is precisely why the MEASURING ROD given to John was exactly 12.6 feet as a fractal/resemblance with the 1,260-day TESTIMONY OF JESUS (Ref. Ezk. 40:5) – indeed:

“That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with ALL THE HOLY ONES (aka, “saints”) what is the WIDTH and LENGTH and DEPTH and HEIGHT–to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all THE FULLNESS OF GOD.”

Ephesians 3:16-19

Tell me not that these measurements – His TESTIMONY given over the course of 1,260 days do not have anything to do with the WHOLE MEASURE OF THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST and that its width and length and depth and height does not have anything to do with the FULLNESS OF GOD in measurement – no, no, no – IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE UNITY OF THE BODY OF CHRIST – His ONE NEW MAN – SO MAKING PEACE!  Is this not His measurement, His standard, His Rod by which we should indeed be measured?  Absolutely!

Then when we read in the Revelation:

The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod (NIV and “reed” NKJV) to measure the city (New Jerusalem), its gates, and its wall.  The city was laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth (NIV: “as long as it was wide”) – “its length, breadth, and height (NIV:  “in length, and as wide and high as it is long”) are equal” (Rev. 21:15-17). It has profound meaning in that these “capacities” equate to the language used by Paul in Ephesians–i.e., the New Jerusalem is the consummation of His Eternal Plan and Purpose of the Ages:  “The Measure of the STATURE of the Fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:13 KJV)!  This is His Standard – His Measure – His Measurement – His Golden Rod-Reed – the Measure of the Heavenly Man found in 1 Corinthians 15 – “He measured its wall:  one hundred and forty-four cubits (144 or 12 X 12), according to the MEASURE OF A MAN, that is, OF AN ANGEL” – yes, the Heavenly Man in Resurrection!

Thus, the Holy District – the Holy City – the New Jerusalem is unto THE MEASURE OF THE STATURE OF THE FULNESS OF CHRIST (Eph.4:13) – this is the “measure of a man” – “even an angel” – for this is the Measure of the GOD-MAN (Rev. 21:15 and vs. 17, especially)–“Measuring reed–to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.” It is NOT a stretch to consider such an expression (“measure of a man, that is, of an angel“) to be akin to Paul’s epistle rendering of the “heavenly man” (“. . . the second Man is the Lord from heaven . . . and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly.  And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man” (KJV – 1 Cor. 15:46-49 excerpts).  The rod/reed has turned into GOLD – the reflection of the Holy City, New Jerusalem and the transformative work of the Holy City wrought under the authority (rod) of the LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT OF CHRIST (“The last Adam became a life-giving Spirit”).  

CUBE – PYRAMIDAL – OR BOTH?


IS THE HOLY CITY PYRAMIDAL OR CUBED OR BOTH?

I would concede to Dr. Hamp that the New Jerusalem’s capacities could be or MAY be designed as a PYRAMIDAL shape, the “Mountain of the Lord” or BOTH a cube (6 sides each bearing 144,000,000 sq. furlongs each for 12,000 X 12,000 furlongs = 144,000,000 sq. furlongs or “144” can be seen on her 6 sides) or in the shape of a triangular pyramid as per the “Mountain of the Lord” – therefore in geometry we provide this formula for determining the capacity of a pyramidal-shaped object to be:

volume = (1/3) * base area * height , where height is the height from the base to the apex.  

Therefore, the New Jerusalem capacity based on this formula is equal to:

Base = 12,000 furlongs (Base Area = 144,000,000 sq. furlongs)

Height = 12,000 furlongs X 144,000,000 sq. furlongs = 1,728,000,000,000 cubic furlongs (you get the idea it’s similar to 12 X 12 X 12 = 1728)

Divided by 1/3 or 1.728000000E12/3 = a Volume/Capacity of 576,000,000,000 or 1/3 of the volume/capacity of its cube configuration or

12,000 X 12,000 X 12,000 = 1.728000000E12 or 3 X 576,000,000 = 1,728,000,000,000 cubic furlongs

So, Dr. Hamp’s New Jerusalem is 1/3rd of my cubed New Jerusalem – then again, the New Jerusalem has no need of the sun’s light because the Lamb is her Lamp – she is the total FULLNESS OF MESSIAH – the “Sun of Righteousness” (Mal. 4:2) – and, if you would the Triune God is “eternally and distinctly Father, Son, and Spirit – inseparably ONE” – Our GOD is 3 but 1 – so I can surely live with Dr. Hamp’s configuration!  And I am wholly supportive of the Commonwealth Theology configured in this model of the CUBE/PYRAMID (aka, Mountain of the Lord) in that it fulfills the “greater things” accorded to the vision given to Nathanael when he proclaimed in answer to Jesus’ announcement that He had seen Nathanael under the fig tree:

“Nathanael answered and said to Him, ‘Rabbi, You are the SON OF GOD! You are the KING OF ISRAEL!” (John 1:48-49) . . . “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man” (John 1:51).  Is this not our confession today that this Jesus is the SON OF GOD (heavenly – cube, if you would) and the KING OF ISRAEL (earthly – pyramidal, if you would) – the ONE FROM HEAVEN and the ONE FROM EARTH and together united – bringing God to Man (Son of God) and Man into God, if you would–King of Israel and TOGETHER, INSEPARABLE–linked together by Jacob’s Ladder. He is identified as the glorified SON OF MAN and seen in the Revelation as that REVELATION – “One likened unto the SON OF MAN” (Rev. 1:13) – WOW, what a vision!  The next time you declare Him boldly as the very SON OF MAN – the HEAVENLY MAN – bringing Heaven and Earth together wherein He did smash to smithereens the dimensional divide between Heaven and Earth – no longer shall we “see in part” and “prophesy in part” because when that which is PERFECT is come then shall we no longer know in part!

However, with a cubed geometric configuration we can do much more elaboration upon the New Jerusalem’s measurements and highlight the splendid magnitude of the British Imperial Measuring System juxtaposed to the fraud of the French Enlightenment (aka, the “Metric System”) in that we all know that there are 43,560 sq. feet in 1 ACRE (forget about hectares – another deceit!) – so that when we realize the following:

1 Furlong = 660 Linear Feet

12,000 Furlongs = 12,000 Furlongs * 660 Linear Feet = 7,920,000 Linear Feet (one edge of the 12-edges of the cubed New Jerusalem – therefore:

7,920,000 ft. * 7,920,000 ft. (one of her six sides) = 62,726,400,000,000 sq. ft.

Now – let’s take 62,726,400,000,000 sq. ft and divide it by one acre in sq. feet or by 43,560 sq. ft. (one acre) = 1,440,000,000 acres (on each of her 6 cubed faces) – 

Therefore:

Each face of the New Jerusalem’s 6 cubed faces bears the insignia of the “144” in either sq. feet/acres or sq. furlongs for:

1,440,000,000 sq. acres (see above)

144,000,000 sq. furlongs (12,000 X 12,000 furlongs = 144,000,000 sq. furlongs)

Could we, therefore, conclude that Revelation 7 has “144” and Revelation 14 has “144” and the New Jerusalem has an additional 12 sets of “144” (6 ea. of 12,000 furlongs X 12,000 furlongs = 144,000,000 sq. furlongs and 6 ea. of 1,440,000,000 sq. acres on each of her 6 sides as per above) – so, 12 sets total of “144” + the 2 sets in Rev. 7 and Rev. 14 = 14 sets of “144” or 12 X 144 = 1,728 (back to my cube – somewhat clever of me – don’t ask me what to do with the additional 144-cubit wall of the New Jerusalem!).

Also – 6 X 144 = 864 which is the insignia or our Sun’s Diameter @ 864,000 miles whereas the 7,920,000 linear feet – edge of the New Jerusalem is a fractal/resemblance of earth’s diameter of 7,920 miles – why not, “the earth is the Lord’s and fullness thereof” – and, in any event, the New Jerusalem has no need of the “864” or the Sun because the Lamb is her Lamp/Light.

Are you following here?

Dr. Hamp’s Mountain of the Lord – Zion’s Holy Hill

Actually, I very much like Dr. Hamp’s Pyramidal Design of the New Jerusalem – but I like my “traditional model” as well – could it be BOTH a CUBE and a PYRAMID?  Absolutely – the PYRAMID is upon the earth and the CUBE is descending from the heavens – they REFLECT each other – the New Earth (Pyramid) and the New Heaven (Cube). By determining in feet the edge of the New Jerusalem (12,000 furlongs * 660 ft. = 7,920,000 linear feet) we can see the Earth’s Diameter of 7,920 miles (see above paragraphs).

But Dr. Hamp and I really enjoy each other in fellowship – except I THOUGHT he was off when he said that the GATES (3 on each side of the Holy City within the Holy District of Ezekiel) were 4,500 cubits each (Ezk. 48:30-35) making each of its four edges 4 * 3 gates on each side = 12 gates each bearing 4,500 cubits = 54,000 cubits. Then I made a most amazing discovery today! The New Jerusalem seen by John confirms that the “Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof” due to its “7,920” but what of the Holy City in Ezekiel’s Holy District–does it confirm, as well, that the “Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof?” IT SURE DOES!

So I did this little experiment:

Since these 54,000 cubits are each per cubit 2.1 feet I simply divided them by the 2.1 ft. measurement of the HSC to determine the total number of cubits and look I came up with:

54,000 HSC ÷ 2.1 ft. = 25,714.2857142857 (Pi infinity)

So I looked at that Pi sequence as in 22/7 = 3.142857~ and realized it had something to do with the circumference of an object as in 3.142857 * any diameter of a circle = the circumference of that circle.

Then I remembered that 25,714 has something to do with the EARTH and the famed Eratosthenes of Egypt who tried to determine the circumference of the Earth via the following:

Eratosthenes’ equation

d = distance between the two cities (Syene and Alexandria)
b = a = measurement of the angle of the shadow at Alexandria

Hence:

   =    = x

   =    = 25,714

But he was assuming that the two cities were on the same meridian of longitude. Because they are not exactly on the same line, his result was a little off–so say some but was he? If Earth’s diameter is 7,920 miles – then we could simply configure its circumference by multiplying 7,920 miles by simple Pi:

7,920 * 3.142857 = 24,891.42744 miles

Yes, Eratosthenes was off a little, some 2,300 years ago; however, approximately 800 miles off (less) was more than phenomenal for his time! But what is exciting is the validation of Dr. Hamp’s 4,500-cubit for EACH of the 12 gates of the Holy City in Ezekiel 48 and how it inadvertently gives us the first and most reliable circumference of Earth which latest for to nigh the present modern era–astonishing! And what’s even more astonishing, it conforms to my suspicion that the Gates of the Holy City found in Ezekiel give us a fairly accurate measurement of Earth’s circumference–just as the 7,920,000 ft. of the edge of the New Jerusalem give us the diameter of Earth today as 7,920 miles (or 54,000 HSC ÷ 2.1 ft. = 25,714 miles). Linking the Holy City of Ezekiel 40-48 with the New Jerusalem of Revelation 11 through “number” (which are absolutes) has been a most gratifying experience for this brother.

So, do I like Dr. Hamp’s 4,500-cubit gates in Ezekiel 48–YES!

The “WONDERFUL NUMBERER” of Daniel 8:13 – “That Certain Messenger”

Even so, the meanderings of what appears to be a somewhat mystical person–yours truly – but I’m not, I’m just a retired mathematician who celebrates each and every numerical marvel wrought by Him Who is entitled the WONDERFUL NUMBERER (Daniel 8:13 – that “another messenger” – or “that certain saint Palmoni) – and, no, the Mormons don’t own that revelation – it was given to us by Himself, our Wonderful Numberer who gave us the vision of the 2,300 “evenings and mornings” – which, again – brings us into the 70th Week of Daniel wherein there is 1,290 days of desolation (Dan. 12:11) leaving us 1,010 days of sacrifice (1,010 + 1,290 = 2,300 literal 24-hour days in that the “vision of the evenings and mornings” refer back to Genesis 1:3, etc. (“and there was evening, and there was morning – the first day” or DAY 1).  


THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL & THE 2300-EVENING/MORNING VISION

This also brings us back to the 30-day extension beyond the 70th Week of Daniel’s two sets of 3 1/2 years (42 months or time, times, and half a time or 1,260 days) – hence to 10 Tishrei and the sounding of the Trumpets of Judgment and Rapture commencing the 30-days of the Wrath of God and the Lamb awaiting the 45 Days of the Second Coming and RENEWAL of the Heavens and the Earth unto ANOINT THE MOST HOLY PLACE (Dan. 9:24) – to land precisely from 10 Tishrei unto 25 Kislev or 30 days unto 10/11 Cheshvan + 45 more days unto the Dedication of the true THIRD TEMPLE and the commencement of the Messianic Age – TO GOD BE THE GLORY and one glorious HAPPY HANUKKAH!

Perhaps I have confused all of you a bit – no worry – this does NOT affect my relationship with anyone who names the name of Christ – the only hill worth dying over is this:  THOU ART THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD – for that hill the “holy ones” in Nigeria are giving their lives and we ought to have that same mind in us!

Sincerely – UNTO FULL STATURE – your brother in the common salvation (Jude 1:3), common faith (Titus 1:4), and COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL (Eph. 2:12)!

P.S. I enjoyed Gavin’s understanding of 10 Tishrei – Day of Atonement commencing the 30 days unto the 1,290th Day (2,520 + 30 = 2,550 days [unto the 1,290th day] + 45 days = unto the 1,335th day or between any 10 Tishrei to 25 Kislev are 75 days [20 remaining days of Tishrei + 30 Cheshvan + 25 in Kislev = 75 days]).  The 10-day interlude between Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement simply signals to us that the Lamb has already been slain and is WORTHY to open the Book of the 7-seals and commence His Judgments upon “all they that dwell on the earth” (aka, the “earthlings” as Ray Stedman has commentated) because the “earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof” and He’s about casting the interloper (Satan, that Serpent, the Devil, the Dragon) off His INHERITANCE!

Interestingly enough–and this never seems to end–75 days X 24 hours per day = 1,800 hours – and this “1800” is the base measurement of the Holy City in Ezekiel 48:34-35 (“All the way around shall be eighteen thousand cubits“) if we simply take 4,500 cubits X 4 base edges = 18,000 cubits or the New Jerusalem in Miles being one edge thereof bearing 7,920,000 ft. ÷ 5,280 linear feet in a mile = 1,500 miles X 12 edges of a cube = 18,000 linear miles or “18” – could it be that these 75 days in Daniel 12:11-12 bespeak of the ultimate manifestation of the Holy City in Ezekiel and Holy City, New Jerusalem and that this multi-dimensional marvel unites HEAVEN & EARTH together both as a Cube (heavenly) and as a Pyramidal object (earthly) – for what it’s worth, I think so – why?  Because when you unite 18 + 18 = 36 and that again is 360 degrees, a circle without beginning or ending = THE ETERNAL GOD!  

Finally (and there’s never a “finally”) the 2,520 days of Daniel’s 70th week in hours is the following:  2,520 days * 24 hours per day = 60,480 hours ÷ 2 (because there are two halves to the 70th week or 3 1/2 days or 3 1/2 years–take your pick) = 30,240 hours or the “324” of the wall of the New Jerusalem @ 144 HSC * 2.1 ft. = 3,024 ft. or the four base edges of the New Jerusalem @ 756 ft. per base edge (Sir. Petrie’s metrology) * 4 = 3,024 ft. (perimeter of the GPG) – thus, when “heaven and earth” are joined we can take 3024 + 3024 = 6048 as a fractal of the 60,480 hours of the 70th Week of Daniel – how ’bout that?  This is designed to give everyone a brain freeze!
