SOLOMON’S MYSTICAL SEA OF CAST BRONZE
The Ten Carts & Ten Lavers of Bronze
Section IV – Part 1 – Series: Wonderful Numbers of Sacred Canon
A Tribal Tale
This was a fun article that got out of control– since it’s our typical one-sided bombast . . . the other side not having a clue as to who we are and we could care less that they do. After all, we still have a right to tell it as we see it…you decide (of course, the other side isn’t given much of a chance to respond…that’s how we like it . . . although we get these awful letters that we won’t show you!)
So, this is one of Jack Hook’s “everybody jumps into the action” dialogues – the good, the bad and the ugly and normally turns out to be the Christians in the lion’s den somewhere having it out … somehow, we survive…and in the morning the king peers into the cage and there we are quietly staring at the lions surrounding us, still! Lots of neat Daniels showed up in the den and then in came some lions – I’m here to talk to these lions – so here goes…
Dear Jack –
Always impressed with your most unique forms of communication – you do seem to elicit lightning rod responses from your guests. Now, bravo to all who have been spiritually-minded in their responses. I must confess, the brethren in the main are altogether benign in their criticisms of your critics – whereas, my patience seems to run thin and, each time, I nigh lose my salvation over these less than insightful souls (I of course in a public forum of this nature will not condescend to “men of low estate” wherein I hold a much saltier slate of condescension than most; but, mercifully, the grace of God constrains me not to waste it upon them!
Now, this god-like creature, Frosty, will one day meet his Maker and then he can explain how things went down with Thor, Odin and the folklore at Valhalla – a tribal pursuit I left decades ago and am no more the less for having done so. These principalities and powers are not to be toyed with, however, and the day comes when Frosty (whose name sort of goes with the chilly northern parts, and, I might add, the condition of his heart) may have to face them in the here and now as their future materialization seems prophetically graphic from Revelation 13 when Apollyon releases them from the Abyss during Earth’s most frightful future – perhaps then, and only then, will Frosty cry out to the One true God and cast his demonic myths, so-called, from his memory as part and parcel of his frivolous mindset.
Before the Frosties of the Earth proclaim me as bigoted as they – and all the worse, for no doubt they tag us as self-proclaimed prophets pontificating on those topics which do not present joyous responses – a freedom we still enjoy in this constricting society, especially at this time of the year (December) – I am, nevertheless, graphically reminded about the signs which intrusively dot the rocky shoreline at Lovers Point Park at Pacific Grove, Ca (Monterey Bay) warning wedding parties of the killer waves which periodically suck unsuspecting gaiety into their death swirls – somebody wasn’t paying attention and BAM – SLAM! Now, wouldn’t it be so much nicer to let the party rip? These dower dudes always have to spoil Frosty’s party – hey, beware of killer waves during your party!
However, lest we “cast pearls before swine” (not my extremity, by the way, but somewhat fitting in this instance) – and God knows how much love is shed abroad on the Christopher Hitchens who damn Christians while enjoying their medical beneficence during his voice-extinguishing esophageal bout with cancer from ardent evangelical Dr. Francis Collins, the head of the National Institutes of Health’s Genome Project whose persuasive attestation to faith is based on sound reason as well. Those whose defiant expressions cater to avarice and pontification oft find themselves in rather desperate straits and who, alas, as Steve Jobs did, cry out at death: Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow!
Then again, as Jesus spoke of the rich man and Lazarus – and so the “rich man died and was buried” and was not doing that well in Hades, so he could at least suggest to father Abraham that he send back Lazarus from the dead to warn of his condition and that way the rich man’s five brothers would repent. Jesus ends this little story by saying: “But [Abraham] said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’” (Luke 16:19-31).
And so it is, melting Frosty’s heart is eventually up to the Almighty, but you have brought Frosty into contact with divine intervention and those troubling believers out there who have a way of praying folks out of hell into heaven…just as my sister who rode with the Hell’s Angels mocked my born-again step-mother until God gave her a vision of hell itself (thanks to my step-mother’s prayers) – and, yes, she had the hell literally scared out of her! For sure, some through the fire, but all through the blood! Eventually, she shared what Jesus had done for her and some 50+ years later, we’ve never turned back, much to the chagrin of scores of agnostics, secularists and beloved atheists, I might add.
During December a team of us evangelize on the streets and coffee shops – occasionally I meet a fellow veteran and dare ask them if they met God in combat – most have – some are so deeply embittered and commence to curse everything in sight…and since I’m normally in sight, I get blasted as an idiot…but interestingly enough, never as a FOOL! So – I’m ahead of the game here.
Now – that said – I wish to thank this other fellow, who I have dubbed, “Ivan the Terrible” for his invidious remarks and superficial understanding of mathematics; especially, Biblical mathematics. Actually, his arrogant remarks were a great blessing in disguise (really disguised, if you would).
Let me preface this unilateral response and to circulate it throughout the blogosphere for the edification of saint and sinner alike – some will hear because they wish to hear and have an “ear to hear” – and, as Paul discovered, others will simply turn away…but there will always be some who believe, as was Paul’s experience on Mars Hill…so, saints, let us not despair but take every opportunity to tell others of the Unknown God!
Here they are (first Ivan and then Frosty for good measure), before I comment on some of what they said:
“So if you’re closed minded on the real universe, but only open to Jesus as ‘God’, take me off your list. After 63 revolutions around the Sun, I am of this opinion. Furthermore, if you take ‘original sin’ out from Genesis, the whole Jewish/Christian theology comes crashing down. Then there is no need for ‘redemption’ or a Messiah, or any part of those writings written 3000 years ago by ignorant goatherds. Kings 7:23 (sic. I Kings 7:23) says Pi is =3? Really? Well, it ain’t, and God should know better. I am not born of some old goatherd’s definition of ‘original sin’. I am a free human being. The whole mystery of the Universe is before me, and I embrace it gladly, and freely. Cheers from a happy secularist. Antichrist? Stupid is as stupid does. What superstitious nonsense. Best regards, Ivan.”
We are all God in the flesh. You, me and Jesus. Jesus had nothing on us because we all enjoy God’s expression through us. I realize that I am a forward thinker ahead of my time. I don’t reject Jesus. He was a great teacher, but only at (sic. “a”) teacher. He was just a man no more or less than any of us. I am 65 and have lived almost twice as long and much more educated and I have traveled all over the planet. All those religions enjoy truths, but I don’t need to worship anyone including Jesus. I enjoy the same ability to establish newer understandings of the concept of God and as I said, “God is the emerging creative energy of the universe.” The Bible is a fine book for the Jews, but not for a Viking type like me. It’s not from my tribe. Why should I believe in some other tribe’s god? That’s like asking me to believe in Allah or the Dream World by the Australian Aborigines.
I am a free thinker and way ahead of the mythical God concept of some dude up there in Heaven. God is simply an energy that manifests throughout the universe. Personally, I don’t think it has a brain, thoughts or conscience. It’s just an energy that creates and destroys with equal abandon.
When the human race is gone when this planet ceases to exist, God and the universe won’t burp at our passing out of existence. So what’s the big deal? Just enjoy your life while you’re here and when you’re not, it’s over. I’m having a great time during my time.
Blessings and joy, Frosty
And Frosty isn’t finished:
Isn’t it time to let that poor guy Jesus alone? He lived, he died and he hasn’t been heard from since. He gave his 33 years and just let him rest in peace. Good grief, why try to rebirth him into this crazy world? He would be overwhelmed. He was a poor, illiterate carpenter for heaven sakes. He never traveled more than 50 miles from his home in the desert. He espoused simple truths that anyone and many have also espoused. He didn’t have the only patent on spiritual truths.
Let’s move toward a new spiritual understanding that humans are responsible for their own actions and that they cannot rely on mythical characters or real characters that have been made into perfect myths. The major religions are all desert religions by some very backward and illiterate tribes. For instance, I am from Sweden. I should bow down to Thor as my god because that’s my tribe. Instead, I think for myself and I stand as a beacon of spiritual energy for my own life. Thor had his time and I’ve got mine.
Today, we know more, we understand more and we possess knowledge far beyond the simple understandings of the people who created those religions. They simply no longer apply. Look at the misery and killings by the Koran, Bible and other religions. Was it worth it to storm the walls of Jericho and kill all those people just because the Christians could do it with bigger fire power?
How about moving from “Fearing God” to appreciating the “creative energy of the universe” that expresses through each of us? It’s time to move beyond fear based religions and get on to happy religions that don’t condemn everyone to hell if they make a mistake or give somebody like the Pope all the power to judge the rest of us.
Let’s get (sic, just?) enjoy ourselves on this planet and get on with living. God is in a campfire, a hummingbird and a whale. God expresses through each of us as he expressed through Jesus. No guilt, no condemnation and no hellfire and damnation.
Let’s get on with the joys of living.
Now, wasn’t that uplifting? Get a cup and let’s discuss this a little – like a whole lot! And, Jack, you should know by now that I’m not one to run from a good fire fight … this always gets me goin’ – besides, I’ve had more revolutions around the Sun than either one of these two guys.
One would think 63 revolutions (or 65 for Frosty) would change Ivan’s opinion on the absolute incredibly mathematical genius of our well-designed solar system (so revealed in the dimensions of the New Jerusalem (later on I’ll explain))—i.e., I would that Ivan do the math and would be so persuaded that Someone is somehow behind all of this) – then again, he’s right regarding original sin and the Judeo-Christian belief system, if you would, demand for Deliverance – i.e., the Messiah – outstanding observation, here. It’s that BLOODY CROSS of yours, Jack Hook, that’s such a stumbling block to folks out there – why don’t you soften the message a bit, after all, can’t we all just get along?
God and His Goat Herders
But since Ivan the Terrible has taken on God Himself – and God needs no defense – let’s examine some of these goat-herd remarks who haven’t figured out how to use Pi (as in π = 22/7 = 3.142857 or 3.141592654 or any number of fractional possibilities)…and God should not have confused these simpletons with dubious formula sending them off in wrong directions; at least those oxen underneath that Bronze (i.e., Copper) Basin are facing the right direction…seems the goat herders got that one right (“And all their (oxen) back parts pointed inward” I Kings 7:25).
Let’s look at the verse in question which Ivan sites – along with some embellishments which Ivan left out – notwithstanding how objective he was in this matter of God’s ignorance:
“And he made the Sea of cast bronze, ten cubits from one brim to the other; it was completely round. Its height was five cubits, and a line of thirty cubits measured its circumference” (I Kings 7:23)
Left out of Ivan’s condescending calculations was this complimentary verse:
“It (the bronze basin) was a handbreadth thick…” (I Kings 7:26a…enough for now, there’s more on this verse, but not at this time.)
Now, Ivan’s contention is this, that something which is “completely round” – although a “golden ellipse” is completely round but not a perfect circle by no means – but does have 360°, if you would, to its circumference. The diameter of a perfect circle is not dissimilar at any two polar opposites on the circle – not so with the golden ellipse…just to clear the air here a bit in thinking that all circumferences are equal insofar as diameters concern throughout their circumference – they are not – all have 360° but all have not the same diameter insofar as an ellipse vs. a perfect circular orbit, if you would.
In Ivan’s brain he sees a problem – i.e., in I Kings 7:23 the proportions (regardless of what a “cubit” may equal) are not sound, they do not compute with a perfect circle’s measurements; to wit:
The height – which we take to mean its depth (i.e. the depth of the basin), is 5 cubits; its “brim to the other brim” measured 10 cubits; and, its circumference measured 30 cubits. In a perfect circle its circumference is determined by this simple formula:
C = πd or Circumference = 3.142857 (7/22 or other fraction) multiplied by its diameter.
Therefore: 30 Cubits (circumference) = 3.142857 x 10 (π x diameter of 10 cubits)??
But, we have a problem, which Ivan clearly noticed:
3.142857 x 10 = 31.42857 cubits, not 30.00000; therefore, we are skewed a bit here – i.e., 1.42857 cubits off – in Ivan’s brain we should have gotten an obvious circumference of 31.42857 since the diameter is 10 – how dumb of God to lead us goat-herders astray like this and give us a 30 instead of a 31.42857 circumference.
So – God is off or some ignoramus goat-herded did the math and goofed up the Copper Basin’s measurements.
Well, besides assuming that all circumferences have similar diameter ratios so designed – NOT! – we have another issue in our problem:
Apparently, this whole basin (i.e., “the Sea of cast bronze”) was “a handbreadth thick” which could account for a lesser interior. So, it all depends on the length of both the “cubit” and the “handbreadth” – both measurements can affect our conclusions to this intractable problem, so it would appear.
Actually, the problem is simply solved here, even though both the Sacred Cubit measurement and the handbreadth is a bit off, the proportions appear fairly accurate – all having to do with the relative thickness of the basin and the “brim to brim” circumference juxtaposed to the basin’s diameter, assuming it is a perfect circle.
Certainly, one could contend that “brim to brim” met the interior only, or was it exterior as well? – So, is it the interior circumference or the exterior circumference; after all, being filled to the brim is from the inside, not from the outside? Oh, well, trivial considerations here.
Ancient “handbreadths” range from 3” to 3 ½ inches – look it up on Wikipedia.
How’s about the “cubit” – well, just so happens that extensive research has been done by such ardent believers (i.e., a fellow goat-herder) like Sir Isaac Newton who surmised, after somewhat exhaustive investigation, that the biblical (Hebrew) cubit measured 25.02” (improved upon by John Taylor and Sir Flinders Petrie (another goat-herder) – forgive the Wikipedia balderdash relative to their deprecation of Pyramidology – another reason to use Encyclopedia Britannica…you get what you pay for) and is thoroughly discussed in our video series THE PURPOSES OF GOD (a shameless plug here). Others, including ourselves, have extended that cubit via the fact its “number” is 252 to be 2.1 linear feet or 25.20” (Imperial inches).
That calculation of 25.20” is further substantiated in that there are 360° in which the Earth rotates around the Sun each “day” – therefore, SEVEN such days constitute a week and 7 x 360° = 2520° or, if you would, that’s how we get our “Sacred Cubit” of 25.20” – a measurement used throughout Holy Writ and assiduously preserved by another group of dumb goat herders during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I who came up with the Nautical and Statute Mile and that whole archaic system of ill-repute known as the “Imperial System of Metrology.” Only we dumb Americans have not discovered how to do Trig with metrics; and, alas, I still think my son is 6’4” - buy my petrol in gallons – and weigh myself in pounds – and drive so many miles to Los Angeles and haven’t seen a km sign in years – how dumb is that?
So, now let’s do our calculations using the measurement of the Sacred Cubit (25:20”) – for, after all, we’re talking about proportional measurements here; therefore, we’re not going to trip over Ivan’s brilliant observation:
Measurements of the Copper/Bronze Basin
Diameter (regardless where polar measurements extend – inside or outside) =
10 Cubits =10 x 25.20” = 252”
Circumference (whether “Golden Elliptical” or “Perfect Circle”) =
30 Cubits = 30 x 25.20” = 756”
Height (or depth)
5 Cubits = 5 x 25.20 = 126”
Now, using these measurements, and before we consider their profundities – for they come under the influence of what we have termed the “Sacred Cubit” of measurement – let’s extrapolate them under π (Pi @ 3.142857 or 22/7) to determine what Ivan’s circumference should have been:
C = 3.142857 x 252” (diameter based on Sacred Cubit) = 791.9982 or 792”
Instantly, we see that 792” does not equal 756” – so, interestingly enough, we are off some 36” or 1 Imperial Yard. Which is of some interest in that there are 360° in any given circumference/circle; therefore, and oddly enough, we discover that 36” is a “fractal” of 360 or 1/10th of 360. And, if we use 3” as the ancient measurement for a handbreadth x 2 (sides) = 6”; therefore, 36” – 6” = 30” – so, we have some interesting numbers here: 36” (off of Ivan’s calculation if we use the Sacred Cubit to measure these proportions) and 6” from the 36” giving us 30” – therefore: 36” – 30” – 6” and 756” vs. 792”.
Incidentally, and I don’t mean to embarrass – however, “manipulating π” has become one of my favorite pastimes:
If we approximate (using just the first 10 digits) Pi as 3.1415926530119026040
Using the rational number/fraction: 103993 / 33102 = 3.1415926530119026040 (the first 12 digits which “directly impact” the product omitting the first “1” in that 3 x 1 = 3 – but all additional “1’s” and, of course, zeroes:
1. 3 x 1 = 3 ::: Triune God (3 sets of 72 = 216 The Name of God)
2. 3 x 1 x 4 = 12 ::: The pervasive “number” of the New Jerusalem “12”
3. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 = 60 ::: “6” the Creation Day of “man” and 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour.
4. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 = 540 ::: 540 = 5040 Plato’s Optimal Number / 2 = 2520 = the Sacred Cubit of 25.20”
5. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 = 1080 ::: 1080 = “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard & Radius of Earth’s Moon in Mi.
6. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 = 6480 ::: 6480 = “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard or 6 + 4 + 8 = 18
7. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 5 = 32400 ::: 32400 x 2 = 64,800 = “18” New Jerusalem Standard
8. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 5 x 3 = 97200 ::: 97200 = “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard or 9 + 7 + 2 = 18
(Please Note: 97200 is the perimeter of the cubed 12 edges of the Great Pyramid of Giza (GPG) at 9,720 Linear Feet in that its base side is 756’ – and, by the way, the elevation of the GPG is 480’ x 12” = 5760” = 5 + 7 + 6 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard of Measurement. Now, with the first eight “impactful digits” of our 3.1415926530119026040 Pi we will do the next four “impactful digits” which advance the product:
9. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 5 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 9 = 874800 = “27” and “27” is the full revelation of Messiah in the 27 volumes of the Christian Sacred Canon.
10. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 5 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 9 x 2 = 1749600 = “27” (1 + 7 + 4 + 9 + 6 = 27) or the Full Revelation of the Messiah in the 27 Volumes of the Christian Sacred Canon or 1 x 7 x 4 x 9 x 6 =1512 = 2 Sides of the GPG at 1512’ and x 6 = 9072 which is the GPG Cubed (12 edges) to reflect the New Jerusalem; therefore, the 1512 reflects the “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard.
11. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 5 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 9 x 2 x 6 = 10497600 = “27” (1 + 4 + 9 + 7 + 6 = 27) or the Full Revelation of the Messiah in the 27 Volumes of the Christian Sacred Canon or 1 x 4 x 9 x 7 x 6 = 1512 = 2 Sides of the GPG at 1512’ and x 6 = 9072 which is the GPG Cubed (12 edges) to reflect the New Jerusalem; therefore, the 1512 reflects the “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard.
12. 3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 5 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 4 = 41990400 = “27” (4 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 4 = 27) or the Full Revelation of the Messiah in the 27 Volumes of the Christian Sacred Canon or 1 x 4 x 9 x 7 x 6 = 1512 = 2 Sides of the GPG at 1512’ and x 6 = 9072 which is the GPG Cubed (12 edges) to reflect the New Jerusalem; therefore, the 1512 reflects the “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard. (Note: The last for number sets have products which when multiplied by themselves as individual digits result in “1512” (consecutively). “1512” is Gematria in Greek for Apocalypsis; therefore, the closer we come to the Millenarian Rule and Reign of Messiah, the Triune God (3) warns and cautions as to prepare for the “End of Days” – thus, the Great Pyramid of Giza has a most prescient message of Apocalypsis and the dawning of a New Day of World Peace, ruled by the Prince of Peace!
The grand total of all the products in the Pi series of 12 impactful digits (eliminating the “1’s” and, of course, zero) we arrive at: 55,250,175 = 5 + 5 + 2 + 5 + 1 + 7 + 5 = 30 and “30” is the Number of Messiah at the commencement of ministry – also, the age to commence the Levitical Priesthood and Joseph’s Age upon ascendancy to Pharaoh’s right hand and King David’s age upon ascension to the Throne of Israel.
Thus, our little “π” (Notice my graphic shaped as a little pie) and notice how when using the rational numbers/fraction of 103993 / 33102 (not 22/7 – this 103993/33102 is far more accurate if you want to go overboard) we did get some rare numerations….3.1415926530119026040 as π:
So you see, Ivan, these dumb goat herders are not so dumb after all…let me explain:
These Israelites – that disgusting tribal folk of yore – knew precisely what they were recording – that it was exceedingly accurate in every way to convey a Divine Message through goat herders like them – though you may not consider yourself of this level of intelligence, since you have apparently achieved a somewhat blissful state of mental consciousness on your road to oblivion, along with your buddy Frosty, whose dust to dust ends it there.
Firstly – the “bronze basin” (and we don’t have time for anything here but the most basic information) was used for “ritual cleansing” and for “offerings” wherein both priests and sacrifices were washed – and if you didn’t take a “bath” – whoops, sorry about that!
Secondly, this was a huge basin by any stretch of the imagination – being some 66’ in at least one circumference – incidentally, another interesting “number” (i.e., “66”) in this mix of calculations (using the 792” circumference measurement based off of Ivan’s 10 cubits (diameter) x 25.20” (Sacred Cubit) = 252” x 3.142857 = 791.999964 or 792 (rounding up)) and 792” / 12” = 66’ Circumference of the Basin).
“Biblical Numerology” has, in the main, been discarded as naught but a form of “Gnostic Christianity” – an oxymoronic statement if there ever were one. Gnosticism was sentenced by Church authorities to the trash bin of deviant paganism and that “Thor bunch” out there who persistently mess with secret numerologies from Zodiac to Stonehenge and should be forthrightly dismissed as deviant mysticism more akin to the theater of the absurd along with the History Channel.
Notwithstanding, this “caveat” may I suggest that the superabundance of number in Holy Writ is there for a profound purpose – i.e., for us to examine, discover the fact (and I speak here to those having “tasted of the Life to come” – excuse us Ivan, et al) – for “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2).
Therefore, to determine the secrets of the Word of God, we are doing quite the royal thing here and a most honorable work indeed! Remember this, blood-bought, blood-washed saints: “The works of the LORD are great; sought out of all them that have pleasure therein” (Psalm 111:2).
Now, the above differentiates from probing around trying to figure out what the Almighty does not wish for us to dabble in for “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God; but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever” (Deuteronomy 29:29).
So, you see, we do have every divine privilege as “kings” (a wholly justifiable inflation, and one, I am sure, that Frosty and Ivan, may someday find refreshing, given their overweening sense of propriety which now surrounds their egos - lol) to delve into that which has been revealed; to wit: let’s check out these numbers and see if there be anything therein….
First of all – could we say that 792 bear some immediate reflection and/or that the simplicity of the 756 does as well (if we take either the π straight circumference of the 30 plain cubit circumference)? And, where, pray tell, does “66” fit into all this? Also, how do these “number sets” of 252” (10 cubit diameter) and the 126” (5 cubit height) fit into this “numeric mystery?”
O.K. – let’s roll….
MEASUREMENTS OF THE NEW JERUSALEM –
Revelation 21:16-17 state:
“The city (i.e., the Holy City, New Jerusalem – Paradise) is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is of an angel.”
That’s it – outside of 12 Gates, 12 Pearls, 12 Foundations – that’s that – nothing else is given and, quite frankly, that’s all that we need to be revealed – aside from a throne and a river and 12 manner of fruit, etc. – but architecturally, that’s it.
So let’s do the math:
One furlong (look it up) is equal to 660’ Imperial Feet (now I like this classy “Imperial” stuff because it sounds so “divinely presumptuous” for some reason). Now, let’s multiply the number of furlongs so mentioned in this obviously “cubed” affair (three-dimensional cube, four-square):
12,000 (furlongs) x 660’ = 7,920,000 Linear Feet (whoops, behold the 792 “fractal” has shown up in a most delightful manner, hasn’t it? I’m sure Ivan is pleased. Of course, this is just a quirky thingy…but, as you will see, there’s so many of them that it would appear that a “divine conspiracy” is afoot here.
But, we now must determine the Imperial Miles from this 7,920,000 Linear Imperial Ft. measurement – so, we divide 7,920,000’ / 5280’ (Imperial feet in an imperial mile – all so delightfully “imperial” and this is also called a Statute Mile – another grand invention of the British…quite the “tribe” I might add)…this gives us on one of the 12 edges of this cube a total of 1,500 Imperial Miles x 12 Edges (all cubes have 12 edges) = 18,000 Imperial Miles…and as we shall see “18” is the Standard Bearer Measurement of the New Jerusalem and shows up all over the place (as in 792 = “18” and by the way, 756 = “18” and 5280’ = “18”) because this measurement encapsulates the “extent” of the New Jerusalem – her entirety.
Also, since we’re dealing with 12,000 furlongs (and excuse my apparent digression here from the bronze basin; however, this is critical to our overall understanding of “divine math” – if I can sound so hideously presumptuous compared to Thor and tribe)…let’s find the “square area” of this dimension as:
12,000 x 12,000 (two edges gives us a plane surface measurement of one plane side) = 144,000,000 sq. furlongs. O.K. – let’s bank the 144; because it sounds an awful lot like 144 cubits was the wall measurement of the City (of course, we’re left adrift in “missing revelation” in that we’re not told whether the wall was that high, long, or wide – just 144 cubits – live with it!)…but let’s take the Linear Feet on one edge of the New Jerusalem:
7,920,000’ x 7,920,000’ = 62,726,400,000,000 sq. feet (hey, now we’re talking national debt here - $62 Trillion + and counting! – Come on Frosty…at least we can agree on that one (Frosty’s apparently a talk show host somewhere.).
Now, let’s divide 62,726,400,000,000 by another New Jerusalem Standard number known as the number of feet in an acre or 43,560 (which also equals “18” as in 4 + 3 + 5 + 6 = 18 – oh, and thanks again to the goat herders of Britain are we given this little determination) – so:
62,726,400,000,000 / 43,560 = 1,440,000,000 acres – grief – we’ve come up with that 144 again…so it goes (so accidental, right?).
The Sun Reflects the Dimensions and “Composite Bride” of the New Jerusalem
Now, that’s but one side – therefore, on six sides of our New Jerusalem cube we find this:
1,440,000,000 x 6 = 8,640,000,000 acres – another interesting figure. Why? Because the “Sun of Righteousness” (Malachi 4:2) seems to have shown up in the measurement of the New Jerusalem – at least the part you can see on the surface. For, the Diameter of Earth’s Sun is 864,000 Miles (look it up) and, wouldn’t you know it 8 + 6 + 4 = 18 again!
But, students, we must check our work:
864,000 x 5280’ = 4,561,920,000’ which is equal to "27" (as in 4 + 5 + 6 + 1 + 9 + 2 = 27) and "27" is the full revelation of Messiah as recorded in the 27 books of the Sacred Christian Canon - the New Testament.
Well, since we’re at the Sun, let’s cube it as well and see what we get, who knows, might be the New Jerusalem again:
864,000 miles x 12 (edges of a cube) = 10,368,000 Linear Miles = “18” (1 + 3 + 6 + 8 = 18) – just keeps happening.
By dropping zeroes we can determine that “24” (wherein “24” is highly representative of Israel and the Church as the only two proper nouns within the Dimensions of Paradise: 12 Gates bear the Names of the 12 Patriarchs/Tribes of Israel; and 12 Foundations bear the Names of the 12 Apostles/Church – taken from the 1,440,000,000 acre figure or one of six flat sides of the New Jerusalem or 144 or 12 x 12 = 144). Therefore:
45408 x 45408 (Cubing the Sun and using its diameter in feet to discover another reflection of the New Jerusalem as the “Composite Bride” of Messiah) = 2061886464 / 4356 (acres) = 473344 x 6 (six-sided cube) = 2840064 = 2 + 8 + 4 + 6 + 4 = “24” as noted in the above paragraph is “Israel and the Church” within the “Composite Bride” as the New Jerusalem.
But, wait a Wall Street minute here (pun intended, Frosty will like that), we haven’t figured out how many Imperial Inches in our original 7,920,000’ – therefore:
7,920,000’ x 12” = 95,040,000” (one edge) or 7,920,000’ x 12 Edges = 95,040,000’
So what? Big what…that’s what. As it turns out 95,040,000” or Feet happens to be a fractal of the distance between the Earth and its Sun at “apogee” (furthest distance from Earth to Sun in their orbits – orbits which vary at 95,040,000 miles).
Incidentally, 95,040,000 = “18” again, and again, and again – is the Designer trying to tell us something? Just might be…if you have an “ear to hear.”
But let’s get ridiculous here:
95,040,000 Imperial Miles between the Earth and the Sun at apogee (or maximum) x 5,280 Imperial Feet in an Imperial Mile = 501,811,200,000 Imperial Feet = 5 + 1 + 8 + 1 + 1 + 2 = “18” (stop talkin’ to me!),
Let’s get back to Earth: 12,000 x 12,000 x 12,000 (all furlongs – for one edge of the New Jerusalem is equal to 12,000 furlongs) = 1728 Cubic furlongs (dropping off the zeroes) giving us, again 1 + 7 + 2 + 8 = “18” . . . so is the “volume” or “capacity” of the New Jerusalem.
And…792 (dropping zero) x 792 x 792 = 496,793,088 = “54” (adding the sum of these as “number”) and 5040 happens to be the “Optimal Number” of Plato (another country boy) and, when divided by two as in 5040 / 2 = 2520 the measurement of the Sacred Cubit…however, multiplying the New Jerusalem’s 6-sided cube by the square footage of one of its sides by 6 x 496,793,088 = 2,980,758,528 sq. feet which “in number” is equal to “36” (2 + 9 + 8 + 7 + 5 + 8 + 5 + 2 + 8 = 36) and “36” is the fractal of 360° which is the circle, the Eternal God without Beginning or Ending. Likewise, 2,980,758,528 / 43,560 (sq. ft. in 1 acre = 68,428.8 acres or “36” (6 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 8 + 8 = 36); finally, 68,428.8 acres divided by the Wall of the New Jerusalem (144 cubits) = 68,428.8 / 144 = 475.2 or 4 + 7 + 5 + 2 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard…but that’s another discussion.
Now…having that as a backdrop…let’s look at our bronze basin again:
The Great Pyramid of Giza and the 30 Cubit Circumference of the Sea of Cast Bronze
Actually – I really like Ivan’s 792 inch circumference – it really attests to the New Jerusalem – you know, that Paradise which Ivan thinks is a figment of our herder mentality. But let’s stick with the Word (as in capital “W” its herder hype) – so, we’re back to 30 cubits as its circumference which gives us:
30 cubits x 25.20” = 756’
Of course, I don’t expect Ivan, nor for that matter Frosty, to know that the base side of the Great Pyramid of Giza is 756’ and is a clear picture (which many of us herders confirm) to be “an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border – i.e., Giza” (past, present and future – Isaiah 19:19).
By the way, Sir. W.F. Flinders Petrie’s metrology confirms the 756’. But, then again, his metrology is suspect in that he too was one of those evangelical goat herders, no less of British vintage.
Of course, the Hebrews, having their own Egyptian experience, were perhaps prone to producing measurements of this nature…given their familiarity with the Great Pyramid of Giza (GPG). If so, perhaps the GPG reflects something of the New Jerusalem---just as the marvelous measurements of the Sacred Basin do?
756’ x 12” = 9072” (another “18” as in 9 + 7 + 2 = 18).
756’ x 4 (perimeter of the GPG) = 3024’ x 12” = 36,288” (which results in “27” which, interestingly enough, are the number of books in the Christian Sacred Canon revealing Jesus as Messiah)
If we “cubed” the GPG using its base as its diameter, we would have:
3024’ x 3 (for we already have in 3024’ from its 4 edges and there are 12 to a cube) = 9072 Linear Feet to a Cubed GPG (12 edges) –
Now, if we take 9072’ x 12” we have a most unusual set of “numbers” = 108,864 – herein are two sets:
108 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard and
864 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard . . .
The Moon and the Nautical Mile of 21,600
…but also 1080 is the Radius of Earth’s Moon (a moon which bears 2160 Miles as its diameter) and, if you noticed the 864 is the fractal of our Sun’s 864,000 Miles; therefore, Earth’s Moon and Sun are involved in the 756” of the GPG and ipso facto of the circumference of the Sea of Cast Bronze (30 cubits x 25.20” = 756” / 12” = 63’). Now, a bit of a digression here; however, Ivan should be delighted at this discovery, for 63 trips around the Sun is a “fractal” of 63’!
The 756” (63’) or the 792” (66’) are, in essence, a full reflection of the “expression” of the measurements of the New Jerusalem; furthermore, the 66’ to which we have previously alluded bears witness to the 660’ or 1 furlong, again, of the New Jerusalem’s measurements.
Incidentally, the fact that God Almighty has a BRAIN and is in point of fact, THE Brain of Brains – knowing precisely what His design ultimately entails – i.e., the New Jerusalem, wherein both of His Divine Witnesses – Israel and the Church – are so clearly defined within its structure: 12 Gates bear the Names of the 12 Tribes of Israel (the patriarchs) and the 12 Apostles of the Lamb (the Church) constitute her foundations – a composite Bride – for God Almighty is not a Deist, nor a Theist, He is Who He is – there is no comparison – by Him were all things created whether in heaven or on earth, visible and invisible.
Also the 144 cubit wall (Revelation 21:17) of the New Jerusalem bears witness as follows:
144 x 25.20” = 3,628.8” which is a “fractal” of the perimeter of the GPG at its base (i.e., 3024’ x 12” = 36,288”) = another happenstance…just thought you should know – those dumb herders who wrote that Book…what do they know?
Now, let’s look at the Diameter of the Sacred Basin’s calculations: 10 Cubits or 25.20” x 10 = 252” / 12” = 21 Linear Feet
…whereas the circumference of 30 cubits x 25.20 = 756” / 12” = 63’
…whereas the height is 5 cubits x 25.20 = 126” / 12” = 10.5’
The diameter of 252” gives us an immediate amplification of the Sacred Cubit itself and it also attests to the seven days of a week in that 360° x 7 of Earth’s Daily Rotations = 2520° and draws attention to a future apocalyptic happening during the final Week of Daniel’s 70th Week in which there are 2,520 Days as in One Week or 360-prophetic days in a year x 7 years = 2,520 Days.
We are, in essence, PEERING INTO a Sacred Basin with profound apocalyptic meaning and, most assuredly, these measurements demand that the “washing of water in the Word” take prominence in unveiling the revealed secrets of the Almighty. Furthermore, they inexorably lead to the measurements of the New Jerusalem and those measurements which attest to the design of our Solar System – particularly, our Earth, Moon and Sun, all inter-related, and all attesting to the ultimate conclusion: The New Jerusalem - the Dimensions of Paradise.
If we take the breadth (10 cubits) the depth/height (5 cubits) and the “length” (i.e., the circumference or, if you would, the perimeter of this basin, 30 cubits – so described) – holding off to the side the thickness of the basin (i.e., handbreadth) we arrive at three measurements of Divine Significance.
Let alone the 12 oxen which face three each to the four corners of the earth – 3 to each side thereof: “three looking toward the north, three looking toward the west, three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east…the Sea was set upon them, and all their back parts pointed inward” (I Kings 7:25)…for this basin “serves” the entire earth…and the 2,000 “baths” (around 18,000 gallons of water). Determining the number of American/British gallons in one “Hebrew Bath” is no small fete. We have landed on the following research as altogether credible:
(bath): A liquid measure equal to about 9 gallons, English measure. It seems to have been regarded as a standard for liquid measures (Ezekiel 45:10), as in the case of the molten sea and the lavers in Solomon's temple (1 Kings 7:26, 38), and for measuring oil and wine (2 Chronicles 2:10 Ezra 7:22 Isaiah 5:10 Ezekiel 45:14). Its relation to the homer is given in Ezekiel 45:11, 14.
That said, at 2,000 baths @ 9 gallons per bath x 2,000 baths = 18,000 gallons of water. Obviously, and immediately, the “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard is seen in the capacity of the Sea of Cast Bronze and is a “perfect fractal” to the 18,000 miles of the 12 edges of the New Jerusalem.
Also, Roy Reinhold (Prophecy Truths) goes into extensive detail to prove that a Hebrew Bath is equal to 4.5 gallons – which does not alter the significance of the “18” at all in that 4.5 “Reinhold Gallons” x 40 Hebrew Baths = 180 gallons (in measuring the number of gallons in the 40-bath capacity found in each of the 10 Lavers aside from the Sea of Cast Bronze. Furthermore, the Basin’s capacity amplifies the work of the Eternal God in that 2 (as in 2,000 baths of the Sea of Cast Bronze) x 18 (as in 18,000 gallons) = 36 as in the 360° of a circle, without beginning or ending.
The New Jerusalem’s primary measurement is immediately recognizable by multiplying the “three dimensions” of the Sacred Basin’s “cubit measurements” – to wit:
10 (brim to brim) x 5 (height) x 30 (circumference) = 1,500 cubits = the precise 1,500 Edge of the New Jerusalem in miles; however, this is also in cubits; therefore, the full dimension of the basin becomes immediately reflective of the exterior of the New Jerusalem as follows:
1,500 cubits x 25.20” (Sacred Cubit Measurement) = 37,800” or its “straight volume” or simple addition of its product numbers together = 3 + 7 + 8 = “18” the New Jerusalem Standard itself! We instantly have both the “edge” of the New Jerusalem (1,500 miles) and the entire measurement of the Sacred Basin as “18” which mirrors the 18,000 miles of the New Jerusalem or 15 + 18 = 33…and this “33” which you see is wholly given over to Messiah’s Prime Number for Jesus was 33 years of age when He completed His earthly ministry.
Noah’s Ark – the Sacred Basin – Ezekiel’s Holy District and the New Jerusalem
I do not have the time to elaborate upon the other Sacred Dimensions within the Scripture which bear witness to these astounding calculations; however, I give several whose dimensions expand upon the New Jerusalem’s ultimate reflection. The waters of this Sea of Cast Bronze reflect the “Imperial Wisdom” of this most Sacred Basin:
Firstly, the total of these basin’s cubits are 45 (10 + 5 + 30 = 45) reflects the dimensions of the earth’s former cleansing wherein eight souls were saved found in Genesis 6:14-16 in describing the dimensions of Noah’s Ark:
Ark’s Length: 300 Cubits (300 x 25.20” = 7560” or the “756” of the Basin’s Circumference and of the Great Pyramid of Giza’s one base edge in feet)
Ark’s Width: 50 Cubits (50 x 25.20” = 1260” or the “126” of the Basin’s Height/Depth and one-half of the Seventieth Week of Daniel’s 2520-day Prophecy)
Arks Heights: 30 Cubits (30 x 25.20” = 756” or the “756” of the Basin’s Circumference and of the GPG’s one base edge in feet)…
Furthermore – 7560” / 12” = 630’ and 1260” / 12” = 105’ and 756” / 12” = 63’ – therefore:
630’ + 105’ + 63’ = 798’ = 7 + 9 + 8 = “24” (“24” is, once again, the two participants in the Ultimate “Composite Bride” – the New Jerusalem)
…or 300 x 50 x 30 = 450,000 cubic cubits or “45”
Noah’s Ark’s “45” matches that of the Sacred Basin’s “45” (i.e., the Basin’s 10 + 5 + 30 = 45 Cubits) and if we look further into Sacred Text we will see that these goat herders saw ahead to Ezekiel’s Temple District found in Ezekiel 40-48 wherein these “45” are given again as the dimensions of the Holy District’s Holy City (i.e., “The LORD is There” or Jehovah Shammah – for the city abides 4,500 x 4,500 cubits) ascertained in Video #26 of The Purposes of God in our special series (viz., 4500 cubits by 4500 cubits).
And this Holy City named “The Lord is There” is precisely the New Jerusalem Standard in that a 4,500 Cubit Edge is equal to 4,500 x 4 base sides of this Holy City = 18,000 Linear Cubits which is precisely the 18,000 miles (yet in cubits) of the New Jerusalem envisioned by John, the Beloved Apostle. And, if multiplied by 3 (in that if this Holy City were cubed as per the New Jerusalem) we have: 18,000 x 3 (in that a cube has 12 edges) = 54,000 which is the 5040 of Plato’s Optimal Number for Social Equilibrium (balance) but, if we take these 54,000 Sacred Cubits and multiply them by their measurement of 25.20” we arrive at: 54,000 x 25.20” = 1,360,800” or 1 + 3 + 6 + 8 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard of Measurement. Thus, the measurements of Ezekiel Millenarian Holy City mirror the ultimate dimensions of the New Jerusalem.
This “45” is intensely significant in that it is wholly representative of the bringing together of both Israel and the Church during the 45 days of Daniel 12:12 wherein it states: “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days” (which time frame occurs at the coming of Messiah at the close of the 1,290th day and the “end of desolations” (Daniel 12:11) which is to Christians the Second Advent or Return of Messiah/Christ and His “unveiling” to His brethren, the sons and daughters of Abraham, of His identity – this is the unveiling of Messiah to all!
This “45” issues forth in Ezekiel’s Millenarian Temple and like bookends from Noah to the Millennium encapsulates the Divine Intention in bringing together His New Jerusalem.
This is the “mystery solved” of the total cubits of the Sacred Basin: “45” (10 + 5 + 30 = 45 cubits).
The height of the Sacred Basin – where the priesthood and the sacrifice is washed in its water of 2,000 “baths” or 18,000 gallons (its capacity is once again a reflection of the New Jerusalem’s Standard of “18” in that 2,000 Baths x 9 gallons (in one bath) = 2 x 9 = 18). When the height of the basin in inches is combined with its “diameter” in inches (brim to brim) we get the following calculation:
126” (5 cubit height or 25.20” x 5 = 126”) + 252” (10 cubit diameter of the Sea of Cast Bronze) width or brim to brim = 378” or 3 + 7 + 8 = “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard. When the 126” (height) is added to the basin’s circumference we get: 126” (height) + 756” (circumference) = 882” = 8 + 8 + 2 = “18” New Jerusalem Standard. The basin’s circumference (756”) + its width of diameter (252”) we get: 1,008 = “18” New Jerusalem Standard; in “sum”…
126” (height) + 252” (width) = 378” = 18 NJS
126” (height) + 756” (circumference) = 882” = 18 NJS
252” (width) + 756” (circumference) = 1,008 = 18 NJS
When we take all three of these sums and add them together we have:
378” + 882” + 1008” = 2268” = 18 New Jerusalem Standard as in 2 + 2 + 6 + 8 = 18. And 2268” / 12” to arrive at the number of feet = 189 = “18” New Jerusalem Standard as in 1 + 8 + 9 = 18.
The measurements of the Sacred Basin provide astounding calculations in that we discover their “full multiple combination” confirms our most anticipated suspicion. In sequence: 10 (cubit diameter) x 5 (cubit height) x 30 (cubit circumference) = 1,500 which we have determined is the edge of the New Jerusalem’s 1,500 miles; however, in inches we discover 252” x 126” x 756” = 24,004,512 = 2 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 1 + 2 = “18” the Standard of the New Jerusalem or 2 x 5 x 2 x 1 x 2 x 6 x 7 x 5 x 6 = 50,400 or 5040 = Plato’s Optimal Number and 5040’ is the perimeter of Solomon’s Temple Mount Area divided by “2” equals the measurement of the Sacred Cubit of 2520 and the measurement of 2520° Week (7 x 360° of Earth’s Rotation) and the Divine Reasoning why these goat herders surrounding Jericho (the “City of the Moon”) by Divine Commission walked about that city in a circle (360°) for 6 days = 6 x 360° = 2160° (the Moon’s diameter in miles) + 7 encirclements on the Seventh Day or we can take the diameter of the moon (2,160 miles) + 360° = 2,520° or 7 rotations on the final day. The degrees of a circle, 360°, connotes the Eternal God without Beginning or Ending. The 2520° is wholly representative of the “chronology of perfection” (7 x 360 = 2520).
It is through the “washing of water by the Word” (Ephesians 5:26), coupled with the “three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one” (I John 5:8). The Spirit of God, washes us by the Word of God and then leads us to the blood (i.e., the “sacrifice”) and it is by the “blood of the Lamb” that the believer overcomes…for “they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony” (Revelation 12:11). Anyone who is washed by the Word of God, through the Spirit of God, will always have the deep realization of their need for the blood of His sacrifice, once for all. Perfection, transformation or the “growth in life” cannot be effective unless it is through Divine Deliverance – that is God’s way of transformation – not man’s way of self-perfection but God’s way of deliverance – it is all within the Sacred Basin’s measurements.
Eschatological Considerations of the Sacred Basin
Eschatological considerations in the Sacred Basin’s measurements are clearly seen as reflected in the Seventieth Week of Daniel’s prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27):
126 = 1260 = the latter half of Daniel’s 70th Week or 1,260 days or 42 months or 3.5 days or 3.5 years or “time, times and half a time” – this is the period of Great Tribulation and the “reign of the Beast” and the “treading down of the Holy City for 42 months” (Revelation 11); also, 126(0) is 1/2 of 252 or 2520 or two sets of 1260 = 2520…is is the height of the Sacred Basin: 126.
252 or 2520 = the entire 70th Week of Daniel’s prophecy, the final week of human history prior to the coming of Messiah, the King. The first half of the 70th Week or 1,260 days will be the time that the Two Witnesses shall prophesy: “And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth” (Revelation 11:3). This is “both” the “height” and the “depth” of the Seventieth Week – 1260 + 1260 = 2520.
However, there are 75 days succeeding the 2520 days (Daniel 12:11-12) for we read of the final day of desolation being 1,290 (Daniel 12:11) or 30 days beyond the 2520 days of the Week or “unto” the 2550th day. This “30” is seen in the “30 cubits” of the Sacred Basin’s circumference. This “30” is clearly the time of the “Wrath of the Lamb” mentioned in the Revelation poured out upon the earthlings who have taken the Mark of the Beast, the False Prophet (Second Beast) and the Beast himself. The Lamb of God declared in John 1:29, 36 on the Day of Atonement is the same Lamb Whose wrath on that day shall be poured out.
“Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age” (Luke 3:23). The Levitical priest commenced ministry at 30 years of age (Numbers 4:1-3); thus, the 30 cubit circumference of the Levites was greeted by their age of ministry and bore witness to the coming Messiah, the Lamb of God – Whose “latter days” shall witness the “Wrath of the Lamb” (Revelation 6:16)…be it known that the earth is not judged without mercy for it is the Lamb of God Who is worthy to mete out justice – if it were any one of us it would not be so tempered – for He alone knows the heart of man.
Finally, and as we have said before, the “45” days of Blessedness – for “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days” or 45 days beyond the 1,290 days (1335 minus 1290 = 45 days). It is within these 45 days – yes, the “full measure of the Sacred Basin’s washing and sacrificial preparation” – for 10 cubits + 5 cubits + 30 cubits = 45 cubits and, as well, 252” x 126” x 756” = 24,004,512 = 2 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 1 + 2 = “18” the New Jerusalem – for all “preparation” – all washing, all sacrifice, all priestly ministry is moving inexorable toward one glorious preparation: The New Jerusalem wherein the Lamb’s Wife has made herself ready to be His Eternal Bride – in Eternal Relationship: Mr. & Mrs. Lamb!
Even in using Pi, Ivan has discovered an amazing truth – this gives the circumference of the basin, using its diameter of “10” (cubits) x 3.142857 (Pi) equal to 31.42857 and not 30, which means that we have exceeded the 30 by:
31.42857 less 30.00000 = 1.42857 (or in Sacred Cubits we have 792 – 756 = 36 for 30 x 25.20 = 756 and 252” x 3.142857 = 791.999964 or 792 – so, in summary:
31.42857 or 792 is the Circumference of the Basin
30.00000 or 756 is the Circumference of the Basin in strict use of the 25.20” Sacred Cubit.
Taking the 10 Cubit (brim to brim) measurement x 25.20” we arrive at 252” x 3.142857 = 756” Circumference which equals 7 + 5 + 6 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard and 792 (Ivan’s Circumference) minus 756 = 36” differential which gives us the 360 or 360° of that circumference…756 / 36 = 21 sets of “36” + 1 additional set of 36 to equal 792 gives us 22 sets of 36. 22 x 36 = 792 = 7 + 9 + 2 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard Measurement.
Finally, Ivan’s 792 is not only the standard measurement of the New Jerusalem’s Edge in feet (7,920,000’) but it is likewise a fractal of the Earth’s Diameter in miles…for the Earth’s Diameter equals 7,920 Miles (Imperial Miles) x 5,280 Imperial Feet = 41,580,000 Linear Feet of Earth’s Diameter = 4 + 1 + 5 + 8 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard; and, if the Earth were cubed using its diameter as one of its 12 edges it would equal to 7920 x 12 = 95,040 Linear Miles on its 12 cubed edges (look familiar?); indeed, Earth’s cubed 95,040 Linear Miles is a “fractal” of the distance between the Earth and the Sun at apogee (95,040,000 Imperial Miles) and it PRECISELY measures the 12 edges of the New Jerusalem at 95,040,000 Linear Feet divided by 5,280’ (Imperial Feet in a Mile) = 18,000 Linear Miles or the “18” = The Standard of the New Jerusalem. And, as you can see below in cubing the Earth using its 7,920 mile diameter as one of its twelve edges – firstly, its 7920 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard and then 4 x 7920 = 31680 = 18 NJS and then, again, 31680 (miles) x 3 (for its 12 cubed edges) = 95,040 Linear Miles = 18 NJS.
Finding the New Jerusalem in the Earth cubed gives ample evidence to the phrase: New Heaven and a New Earth = for could the Earth express the Measurements of the New Jerusalem so precisely? Let’s see: 41,580,000 Linear Feet (one edge of he 12-Edged Cubed New Jerusalem) x 41,580,000 Linear Feet (determining one side of this six-sided cubed Earth in area) = 1,728,896,400,000,000 (or 1 Quadrillion, seven-hundred twenty-eight trillion, eight-hundred and ninety-six billion, four-hundred million square feet) on one side of the cubed Earth. Now we must multiply this figure by a multiple of 6 to determine the square footage on all of its six sides; therefore:
1,728,896,400,000,000 x 6 = 10,373,378,400,000,000 square feet – now this figure must be divided by 43,560 sq. feet which are in 1 Imperial Acre to determine the number of acres on our six-sided-cubed Earth to see if it reflects the measurement in some way of the New Jerusalem (using, of course, Ivan’s 792” Circumference of the Sacred Basin, having multiplied the Basin’s 10 cubit diameter (brim to brim) by 3.14+ to arrive at 792” “Ivan Circumference”)…o.k. – here we go…keep holding your breath while the goat herder calculates:
10,373,378,400,000,000 / 43,560 = 238,140,000,000 acres…AND, you guessed it:
2 + 3 + 8 + 1 + 4 = 18 THE NEW JERUSALEM Standard of Measurement!
Still, they will not believe – but on a small scale, if we took the 10 cubit diameter of the Sacred Basin and multiplied it via the Sacred Cubit of 25.20” we, of course, arrive at 252” – now, let’s extrapolate that figure out “there” to see if we can arrive at the New Jerusalem….
252” is the diameter of the “circular” basin – a small “world” or “earth” or “moon” or “sun” – all of which have 360° as spheres - so let’s take our miniature and commence the process:
252” x 252” (to determine the square area of one of its newly created six sides) = 63,504 sq. inches (which, by the way equals to “18” interestingly enough). Now let’s take into account 6 separate sides to our newly created cube:
63,504 x 6 = 381,024 = 3 + 8 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 18 NEW JERUSALEM STANDARD…it’s almost not fair, is it, because the 252 was really 252” (as in 10 cubits x 25.20” Sacred Cubit = 252”); therefore, we should have converted this to feet as in 252” / 12” = 21’ … so we’re really talking about 21’ as the Sacred Basin’s Diameter or “brim to brim” measurement, right?
Let’s do it again with this measurement:
21’ x 21’ = 441’ (looks a lot like 144 doesn’t it—maybe that’s why those oxen’s rears are all facing inward!) – now, taking this as one of the Basin’s Cubed sides we must now multiply it by 6 (for a cube has six sides) to determine the full square footage of this “Sacred Basin Cube”…
441 sq. feet x 6 = 2,646 sq. feet = 2 + 6 + 4 + 6 = 18 NEW JERUSALEM STANDARD! But, let’s nail it: 2 x 6 x 4 x 6 = 288 = 18 NEW JERUSALEM STANDARD! Still not enough? O.K. Let’s reverse the 441 to 144 as in the measurement of the Wall of the New Jerusalem: 144 x 6 = 864…Good grief, Scotty, we’ve landed on the Sun! How’s that, Captain Kirk? Well, the Sun’s diameter is 864,000 Miles and, besides, 8 + 6 + 4 = 18 NEW JERUSALEM STANDARD.
So, I’d like to express my appreciation – all of our appreciation – to both Ivan and Frosty – from all of us dumb goat herders to all of you who are smarter than God…maybe you guys should get your rears facing in the right direction – that way you can see the measurements of the Sacred Basin!
Oh, one more thing – since the Bronze (as in Bronze Basin) is really another word for Copper Basin…Copper (Cu) has an atomic weight of 63.546. And, since the Divine Geometer and Architect is also the Divine Chemist, having given us all of Earth’s elements, wouldn’t He send us some message as well in this respect? Surely, He would:
6 + 3 + 5 + 4 + 6 = 24.
24 reflects the 24 Sacred Canon of the Hebrew (from their MSS, whereas we of the King James Version have broken up the combined texts to 39 but the Jews have 24) …this “24” also bespeaks of the 24 Elders of the Revelation or the 12 Tribes of Israel whose Names are over the 12 Gates of the New Jerusalem and the 12 Names of the Apostles of the Lamb (i.e., the Church) whose Names are upon the 12 Foundations of the New Jerusalem. All “24” have been washed and judged here at the Sacred Copper Basin… furthermore…
6 x 3 x 5 x 4 x 6 = 2160 which is 6 x 360 = 2160 or on the 6th Day man was created (i.e., 6 x 360° = 2160°) which 2160 is the diameter of Earth’s Moon in Statute Miles which if it were to have the Moon “cubed” to express the New Jerusalem would be as follows: 2160 diameter x 12 Edges = 25,920 Linear Miles = “18” New Jerusalem Standard and, wouldn’t you know it, 25,920 is equal to the number of years in the Great Precessional of 25,920 Years (also known as the Zodiac and in Hebrew as the Mazzaroth – which is altogether another goat herder’s delight). Boy, that dumb British tribe sure knew what they were doing when it came to Sacred Measurement.
One more thing: There is another measurement of the earth invented by the British – the Nautical Mile which is 21,600 Nautical Miles about the circumference of the Earth (again 2160). Every time Ivan and Frosty flies about the Sun in their earthly rotation they are flying on instruments calculated to the Nautical Mile (or if they decide to float about the earth, they’re stuck with this Nautical Mile of “sacred worth” (perhaps a most disconcerting apprehension of reality for them). This “copper understanding” reminding us all that that Sacred Basin’s very element mirrors the earth’s Nautical Mile Circumference which in turn mirror the dimensions of our Moon’s 2,160 Diameter (Statute Miles); and, incidentally, 21,600 Nautical Miles uses a factor/multiple of 1.15 to determine the distance in Statute Miles; therefore, 21,600 x 1.15 = 24,840 Statute Miles, which in many metrologies is the measurement of the Earth in Statute Miles (circumference) which is, as well: 2 + 4 + 8 + 4 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard Measurement.
Therefore, the Earth in Statute Miles, in measuring its number of Statute Miles/Feet (5,280’ in a Statute Mile) is equal to 24,840 miles x 5,280’ = 131,155.200 Linear Feet = 1 + 3 + 1 + 1 + 5 + 5 + 2 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard of Measurement. To determine the number of feet in a Nautical Mile you simply multiply 5,280’ x 1.15 = 6072’ (Number of feet in a Nautical Mile) which measurement equals to the New Jerusalem Edge of “15” as in 6 + 7 + 2 = 15. And, as well, we discover that 21,600 x 6072 = 131,155,200 Linear Nautical Feet (of course); moreover, the peculiar number of “6072” clearly represents two peculiar number sets: “60” and “72”.
There are 360° in the circumference of the Earth or 21,600 Nautical Miles / 360° = 60 Miles in 1° of the Nautical Earth; likewise, we witness that in the 25,920 years of the Zodiacal/Mazzaroth Great Precessional there are these same 360° within this circuit. Therefore: 25,920 years / 360° = 72 years in 1° of the Zodiacal Circuit/Cycle. Immediately we see the “earth and the heavens” resound with an astonishing calculation of 60 and 72 = together the number of feet in a Nautical Mile (6072’).
But, 3° of the Nautical Earth equal 180 Nautical Miles (the New Jerusalem Standard) and 3° of the “heavens” are equal to 3 x 72 = 216 years (“216” in Hebrew Gematria connotes the Name of God, among a host of “spiritual realities” – see here). When the “heavens and the earth” come together under “3” which is the Triune God/ the One God (i.e., 6072 x 3) you arrive at 18,216 or “18” and “216” which is 3x60 = 180 = 18 and 72x3 = 216…somewhat astounding. If, however, we combine 180 + 216 = 396 = 3 + 9 + 6 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard…all this from the atomic weight of copper (63.546). Oh, and by the way 396 is a fractal of the radius of Earth’s 3960 miles (diameter being 7920) and, of course, 3960 Statute Miles x 5280 (Imperial Feet) = “27” which is the full revelation of Messiah in the 27 books of the Christian Canon.
Tony Badillo’s Outstanding Commentary on the Sea of Cast Bronze
“As has been explained, the Bronze Sea commemorates the Red Sea crossing that drowned the Egyptian army, a symbol of sin and the Evil Inclination. But the Sea itself depicts the Spirit of God which, when joined to the human spirit initiates a life-long process of restraining the Evil Inclination. Yet there’s more: The water in the Sea also symbolizes God’s seed* and, therefore, when the Divine spirit-seed is joined to the human spirit, a new person is created, spiritually speaking. While the blood of the korban chatat (offerings for sin) separates one from sin’s penalty, the Divine spirit-seed, in conjunction with one’s own efforts (i.e., cooperating with the Divine Spirit – my assumption), gradually begins redeeming the human spirit from the grip of sin (i.e., the “power of sin”) that works through the Evil Inclination. So in this sense the Sea relates to the “begetting” or birthing of a new, spirit-led people. . . . To emphasize: This symbolizes a rebirth through the Divine spirit, the Divine seed, and results in a renewal of the mind and heart, Ezekiel 36:25-27.”
Badillo continues his outstanding evaluations:
“According Exodus 38:8, Moses’ small laver [used in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness] was made from the ‘mirrors’ (of polished metal, not glass) of women, their reflective quality relating to the water inside the laver, and the water itself symbolizing the Divine spirit as a mirror for exposing spiritual blind spots by illumining dark areas of the heart and mind, Jeremiah 31:33; Ezekiel 11:19; 36:25-27.
Second point: The twelve bulls supporting Solomon’s Sea were posted according to the four directions of the world: three pointing north, three south, three west and three east, I Kings 7:25. This agrees with how the tribes were arranged under Moses: Judah and two others toward the “rising of the sun,” i.e., east; Reuben and two others to the south, Ephraim and two others west; and Dan and two others north (Numbers 2:3, 10, 18, 25). But Levi with the tabernacle was posted in the middle (blue square), v. 17, because it was the priest tribe and normally not counted among the others. This arrangement forms a square of 12 tribes symbolizing the four compass directions (red squares) but moving in one direction (pink arrow). Solomon’s 12 bulls also pointed in the four directions, implying that some worldwide mission was involved that the 12 tribes were intended to achieve (see also Genesis 28:14). When the mobile tabernacle was put away, the tribe of Levi assumed charge of the Temple.
The Ten Carts of Bronze and Ten Lavers
(27) “He also made ten carts (stands) of bronze; four cubits was the length of each cart, four cubits its width, and three cubits its height. (28) And this was the design of the carts: They had panels, and the panels were between frames; (29) on the panels that were between the frames were lions, oxen, and cherubim. And on the frames was a pedestal on top. Below the lions and oxen were wreaths of plaited work. (30) Every cart had four bronze wheels and axles of bronze, and its four feet had supports. Under the laver were supports of cast bronze beside each wreath. (31) Its opening inside the crown at the top was one cubit in diameter, and the opening was round, shaped like a pedestal, one and a half cubits in outside diameter; and also on the opening were engravings, but the panels were square, not round. (32) Under the panels were the four wheels, and the axles of the wheels were joined to the cart. The height of a wheel was one and a half cubits. (33) The workmanship of the wheels was like the workmanship of a chariot wheel; their axle pins, their rims, their spokes, and their hubs were all of cast bronze. (34) And there were four supports at the four corners of each cart; its supports were part of the cart itself. (35) On the top of the cart, at the height of half a cubit, it was perfectly round. And on the top of the cart, its flanges and its panels were of the same casting. (36) On the plates of its flanges and on its panels he engraved cherubim, lions, and palm trees, wherever there was a clear space on each, with wreaths all around. (37) Thus he made the ten carts. All of them were of the same (lit. “one”) mold, one measure, and one shape. (38) Then he made ten lavers of bronze; each laver contained forty baths (i.e., one bath = 9 gallons), and each laver was four cubits. On each of the ten carts was a laver. (39) And he put five carts on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house. He set the Sea on the right side of the house, toward the southeast” (I Kings 7:27-39).
The description of the Ten Carts and the Lavers which they carry is nearly three times more extensive than the Bronze Sea and the Twelve Oxen – therefore, it is safe to conclude their importance is no small thing. Obviously, as you can see from the graphics, these “Ten Water Lavers” are intimately connected to the “Sea of Cast Bronze.”
Tony Badillo sees in these Ten Water Lavers the extensions of “Temple Man’s” two hands; furthermore his overall commentary on the meaning of the Sea of Cast Bronze and its interrelationship with the Ten Water Lavers is excellent – although my emphasis is upon the measurements of these Temple items, Tony Badillo’s comments are altogether sufficient:
“Solomon’s artisans also constructed ten bronze wheeled lavers, symbolizing the ten fingers of the hands, I Kings 7:27-39; II Chronicles 4:6. Since the Temple was in the hidden form of a man, these correspond to the ten fingers of Jacob, King Messiah, and the Levite High Priest. But since the Temple is identified as the “house of God” in the Tanach, they also relate to his fingers, even if this should be a figure of speech. For example, the Egyptians exclaimed of the ten plagues, “This is the finger of God!” in Exodus 8:15, (EV 8:19); and Moses tells us that the stone tablets of the Covenant were written with “God’s own finger,” Exodus 31:18; Deuteronomy 9:10. Therefore at right is my version of what these bronze wheeled lavers may have looked like. According to the biblical description they had lions, oxen and cherubim on their four panels. The cherubim would be on the panels not shown. The carts were four cubits wide and long, I Kings 7:27, but with a height of three cubits. The water lavers themselves were possibly removable and likely mounted on top. And although the lavers had wheels, they were not meant to be moved about from place to place. Once installed on the right and left sides of the Temple (1 Kings 7:39) – but toward its front – there would be no need to move them anymore; and in this particular position they clearly form the hands and fingers of Temple Man as High Priest. Moreover, this was the most practical position because they were solely for washing off blood from the offerings, II Chronicles 4:6, meaning that they had to be posted close to the slaughtering tables and Bronze Altar where such offerings were made daily and where the priests officiated.
“Lastly, since the bronze lavers are the hands, the water in them symbolizes the Divine spirit. Compare First Chronicles 28:12 with v.19. In v.12 David says he received Temple plans by the Lord’s spirit, but in v. 19, by the Lord’s hand. In this case, inspiration by the Divine spirit counts as the work of his hands.” (The Meaning of Solomon’s Mystical Sea of Bronze, Tony Badillo)
The Measurements of the Ten Carts of Bronze – Water Lavers
10 Carts of Bronze – Water Lavers
· 4 Cubits = Length of each Cart (the “cart” was the “undercarriage” and not the laver – the laver was mounted as a pedestal atop the cart – the wheels appear to have been positioned wholly beneath the cart area
· 4 Cubits = Width of each Cart (ostensibly square on top and bottom)
· 3 Cubits = Height of each Cart (thus, three dimensional)
· Panels were on each of the four sides – these panels were between frames (4 frames) – all were square
· Panels – each panel (4 ea.) had lions and oxen and cherubim on them (plural – so at least 4 lions, 4 oxen and 4 cherubim per cart)
· Panel insides also contained engravings
· The Laver was shaped like a pedestal mounted on the roof of the four-square panels
· 4 Bronze Wheels per Cart resembling chariot wheels with axle pins, rims and spokes and hubs
· 1 and 1/2 Cubit Wheel Height (cf. to overall height of Cart @ 3 Cubits - so Wheels 1/2 overall Height
· 2 Axels of Bronze per Cart connecting two front and back wheels
· Its 4 “feet” had supports (i.e., “struts”)
· 4 “supports” were fastened with bronze beside each wreath on each of the four sides of the cart
· 1 Cubit was the “inside diameter” of the “crown” of the laver
· 1 and 1/2 Cubits was the outside diameter
· 1/2 Cubit High was a perfectly round flange of the same casting as the panels (Note: Therefore, the perfectly round flange was 1/6th of the overall 3 Cubit Height of the Laver (i.e., 1/2 Cubit Height)
· Cherubim were engraved also on the plates of its flanges, as well, on the panels – as well as lions and palm trees wherever there was a clear space with wreaths all around.
· All Ten Lavers came from the same mold – one measure, one shape – they were all identical
Upper Portion of the Cart & the Amazing 40 Baths per Laver
· 10 Lavers of Bronze were made
· 40 Baths would fill each Laver @ 9 Gallons per Bath x 40 Baths = 360 Gallons per Laver (demonstrating the Eternal God without Beginning or Ending as in a 360° circle)
· 4 Cubits in Height was each Laver atop the already 3 Cubit Height of Each Cart
· 5 Carts were placed on the Right Side of the House (south side) and 5 on the left side (north side) of the house – Note: The Sea was on the right side (south side) of the house, toward the southeast.
The calculation that 9 gallons is equal to 1 Hebrew Bath x 40 Baths per Laver = 9 x 40 = 360 gallons; therefore, 360 gallons of water per Laver x 5 on one side = 5 x 360 = 1,800 gallons on the north side of the temple (5 Lavers) and 5 x 360 = 1,800 gallons on the south side of the temple and 1,800 + 1,800 = 3,600 gallons of water is equal to both the “18” of the New Jerusalem Standard and TWO as a witness to the New Jerusalem – giving prominence to the TWO WITNESSES and the TWO PROPER NOUNS of the New Jerusalem: Israel and the Church wrought by the Eternal God (360° circle) to produce the New Jerusalem.
Furthermore, when we combine the “water” of both the Great Basin – the Sea of Cast Bronze and its 2,000 baths with the 400 baths of the 10 lavers (i.e., 40 baths per laver x 10 lavers = 400 baths) we get: 2,000 + 400 = 2,400 baths which equates to the 24 Elders of the New Jerusalem (12 Patriarchs of Israel – 12 Tribes and the 12 Apostles of the Lamb, the Church). Likewise, the 400 Baths x 9 gallons per bath = 3,600 gallons + the 2,000 baths of the Great Basic x 9 gallons = 18,000; therefore 3,600 gallons + 18,000 gallons = 21,600 gallons which 21,600 equates as a multiple fractal to the 2160 of the Moon’s Diameter; the 216 years of the 3° degrees of the Mazzaroth/Zodiacal Great Precessional cycle; the 21,600 of the Earth’s Nautical Mile Circumference – and, of course, if we were to add the 360 of the Eternal God (as in 360° circle without Beginning or Ending) we would arrive at 2520 or 2160 + 360 = 2520 the measurement of the Sacred Cubit (25.20”) or the distance at apogee between the Earth and its Moon of 252,000 miles.
Calculations of the Ten Carts – their implications:
· Linear Measurements in Inches (Sacred Cubit) and feet (12 Edges):
· The dimensions of the “square cart” were 4 cubits x 4 cubits (width and length) but its height was 3 cubits.
· Therefore: 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 16 Cubits (4 edges on top) x 2 (4 edges on bottom) = 32 Linear Cubits + 4 x 3 Cubits for the height (for it had 4 separate height edges) = 12 Cubits. 32 Cubits + 12 Cubits = 44 Cubits.
· 44 x 25.20” = 1108.8” or clearly 1 + 1 + 8 + 8 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard and, as well the “appearance” of two separate number sets of 11 and 88 or 18 and 18 to signal us that the New Jerusalem Standard overwhelms the measurement of the Bronze Carts
· Therefore, since there are 10 of these we total all 10 to equal: 10 x 1108.8” = 11,088” (again New Jerusalem Standard dominates) / 12” = 924’ or 9 x 2 x 4 = “72” (The Name of God) or 9 + 2 + 4 = 15 = The Edge of the New Jerusalem’s 1,500 miles, again its fractal.
· On the one hand there were the engravings of the 4 oxen per cart or 4 x 10 = 40 oxen there were engravings of 4 lions on each cart or 4 x 10 = 40 lions + multiple lions on the plates of its flanges.
· There were engravings of 4 cherubim on each of the 4 panels; therefore 4 x 10 = 40 + multiple cherubim on the plates of its flanges.
· There were two wreaths per panel – below the lions/oxen – therefore, there were 8 wreaths per cart (2 on each panel) and 8 x 10 = 80 wreaths + there were “wreaths all around wherever there were a clear space” on the flanges above the lions and oxen. Therefore, the higher one viewed the cart the more the wreaths (symbol of victory) were displayed.
· The symbol of the oxen is that of servitude and exemplifies the “suffering servant” who came as the Servant or even “slave” (Gospel of Mark and Zechariah 3) and then in Messiah’s Second Coming He will come as the Conquering King – the Lion of the Tribe of Judah – both are viewed with the heavenly Cherubim “ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
· On the flanges (top) of the Lavers there are lions, cherubim and palm trees – all clearly symbolize the kingly, heavenly and ascended (palm trees) Life of Messiah, as well as the Divine Spirit through cleansing us for service.
The Bronze Wheels:
· 4 per Cart = 4 x 10 = 40 Wheels
· Wheel Heights was 1 1/2 Cubits ea. or 1.5 Cubits x 25.20” = 37.8” = 3 + 7 + 8 = 18 NJS
· Therefore, each and every wheel is measured to the New Jerusalem Standard.
· 1 Wheel = 37.8” x 4 Wheels = 151.2” (1512 commends itself to 2 sides of the base of the Great Pyramid of Giza which is 1512 Linear Feet and 1512 is Greek Gematria for Apocalypsis) or 151.2” / 12” = 12.6’
· 10 Carts = 151.2” x 10 = 1,512” or a total of 126’ (Note: 126 is 1/2 of the Sacred Cubits 25.20 or 252).
· We also note that 2 wheels (front or back – though there appears to be neither) would be 2 x 37.8” = 75.6 and 756 is one base edge of the Great Pyramid of Giza and is also at 7 + 5 + 6 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard – therefore, whichever side one approaches the wheels (front or back) they will see the measurement of the New Jerusalem.
Diameter of the Crowns at the Top:
· The interior diameter of the crown (pedestal) is measured as 1 cubit
· The exterior diameter of the crown (pedestal) is measured as 1 and 1/2 cubits
· Therefore, simply taking these two measurements we ascertain the following – based on the fact “the opening was round, shaped like a pedestal” – so we view this as:
· 1 Cubit inside diameter = 25.20” = 1 cubit = 25.20” is equal the Sacred Cubit itself or 2.1 Feet
· 1 1/2 Cubits outside diameter = 25.20” x 1.5 = 37.8 = 3 + 7 + 8 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard or 3.15’
· There are 10 of these diameters at 25.20” = 252” or 21 Feet total
· 37.8” x 10 = 378” = 3 + 7 + 8 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard
Circumference of Interior and Exterior Diameters:
Formula for finding the circumference of a circle: C = π*d or Circumference = 3.14 x diameter
· Inside Diameters: C = 3.14 x 25.20 (Note: If we use 22/7 or 3.142857) = C = 79.2” = 7 + 9 + 2 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard x 10 Carts = 79.2 x 10 = 792 = 18 New Jerusalem.
· 792 is a fractal of Earth’s Diameter itself at 7920 Miles and is also a “fractal” of one edge of the New Jerusalem at 7,920,000 Linear Feet – therefore, in miniature or proportion each of the interior circumferences of these crown openings.
· Exterior diameters: C = 3.142857 x 37.8” = 118.8 (rounding to the nearest tenth) or 1 + 1 + 8 + 8 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard and clearly seen in the 11 and the 88 is 18, 18.
· Amplified by 10 carts = 1188 with the same results.
· 3.142857 x 37.8” = 118.7886546 x 10 = 1,187.886546 / 12” = 98.99 or 99’ or 9 + 9 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard.
Area of a Circle
Formula for finding the area of a circle is: A = πr2 or π x r x r
3.142857 x ½ of 37.8” (exterior diameter) = 18.9 (r) x 18.9 (r) = 357.21 x 3.142857 = 1122.66 (rounding to the nearest 100th) = 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 6 + 6 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard x 10 carts = 11,226.6 sq. inches = 18 New Jerusalem Standard.
Overall Height of the Wheels + Cart + Laver…
· 3 Cubits = height of the cart itself
· 1.5 Cubits = height of each wheel
· .5 Cubits = height of the pedestal
· 4 Cubits = was the height of each laver
· Total Height of the entire wheel, cart, pedestal and laver: 9 Cubits
· 9 cubits x 25.20 = 226.8” = 2 + 2 + 6 + 8 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard
· 9 cubits x 2.1’ = 18.9 Linear Feet = 1 + 8 + 9 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard
· 10 Wheels/Carts/Pedestals/Lavers = 10 x 226.8 = 2,268” = 18 NJS
· 10 Wheels/Carts/Pedestals/Lavers = 10 x 18.9 Linear Feet = 189’ = 18 NJS
Without question, the 10 Carts with adjoining lavers – all of copper – utterly express the primary dimension of the New Jerusalem Standard, thanks in absolute measure to the discovery of the measurement of the Sacred Cubit’s measurement of 25.20” – we are indebted to the Lord’s work among the British for this incredible discovery and their persistence in maintaining these divine dimensions within the Sacred Canon throughout.
Gallons of Water in the Ten Lavers and the Great Basin – Incredible Measurements!
We have carefully determined that the “Hebrew Bath” is equal to 9 Gallons of Water; therefore, the 2,000 baths of the Sea of Caste Bronze, the Great Basin, is equal to 2,000 x 9 = 18,000 Gallons of Water. Water has both cubic inches within it and weight in pounds (staying completely away from the metric system in measurement); therefore, we have these astounding calculations:
Gallons of Water in Cubic Inches
18,000 Gallons x 231 Cubic Inches to 1 Gallon of Water = 4,158,000 cubic inches = 18 NJS (or 4 + 1 + 5 + 8 = 18).
360 Gallons per Laver (i.e., 40 baths x 9 gallons per bath = 360 gallons) x 231 Cubic Inches per Gallon = 83,160 Cubic Inches = 18 NJS (8 + 3 + 1 + 6 = 18) and 83,160 x 5 Lavers = 415,800 Cubic Inches per 5 Lavers or 18 NJS x 2 (to arrive at 10 total Lavers of Water) or 415,800 x 2 = 831,600 = 18 NJS (8 + 3 + 1 + 6 = 18).
Combining the 4,158,000 cubic inches of the 18,000 Gallon (2,000 bath) Sea of Cast Bronze Basin with the total Gallons of the 10 Lavers we arrive at: 4,158,000 + 831,600 = 4,989,600 = “36” (4 + 9 + 8 + 9 + 6 = 36) or the Eternal God without Beginning or Ending as in 360° of a Circle. Therefore, the Eternal God’s intention is the 18 New Jerusalem Standard wherein the sum of both the Great Basin and the 10 Lavers is equal to “36” and, likewise, separately the total “cubic-inch number” of the Great Basin (4,158,000) is equal to 18 NJS and the total “cubic-inch number” also of gallons of the 10 Lavers is equal to 18 NJS (83,600) and 18 + 18 = 36 to confirm the Eternal God’s intention on behalf of the New Jerusalem’s Standard of Measurement – He measures everything by this ultimate standard for the Universe!
Gallons of Water in US and Imperial Weight
Likewise, water has “standard water weight” – 1 US Gallon is equal to 8.35 Pounds (lbs.) and 1 Imperial Gallon of water weight is equal to 10 Pounds” (Note: Opinions on water weight vary due to condition of the water but these calculations are standard weights of water.).
Therefore using US Gallon Weight @ 8.35 Lbs. p/gal.
2,000 Baths x 9 Gallons per Bath = 18,000 Gallons x 8.35 Lbs. = 150,300 Lbs. = 9 (1 + 5 + 3)
40 Baths x 10 Lavers = 400 Baths x 9 Gallons per bath = 3,600 Gallons x 8.35 Lbs. = 30,060 Lbs. = 9 (3 + 6 = 9)
Combining the 150,300 Lbs. (Great Basin) + 30,060 Lbs. (10 Lavers) = 180,360 = 18 NJS (1 + 8 + 3 + 6 = 18)
Using Imperial (British) Weight per Gallon at 10 Lbs. per Gallon:
2,000 Baths x 9 Gallons per Bath = 18,000 Gallons x 10 = 180,000 Lbs. = 18 NJS
40 Baths x 10 Lavers = 400 Baths x 9 Gallons per bath = 3,600 Gallons x 10 Lbs. = 36,000 Gallons = 36 = The Eternal God or 3 x 6 = 18 NJS.
Combining the 180,000 Lbs. (Great Basin) + 36,000 Gallons (10 Lavers) = 216,000 and 216 = The Name of God (3 x 72 = 216) or 2160 Miles the Diameter of the Moon (“the Moon beneath her feet”) or the 21,600 Mile Circumference of the Earth in Nautical Miles and, consequently, the measurement, if cubed, of the New Jerusalem in that 2160 (Moon’s Diameter used as its edge) x 12 Edges of a Cubed Moon = 25,920 = 18 NJS and 25,920 in years is equal to one complete circuit of the Great Precessional of the Mazzaroth/Zodiac; also, cubing the Earth’s Nautical Mile (6876 Nautical Miles = Earth’s Diameter in Nautical Miles) or 6,876 Nautical Miles x 12 Edges (12 edges in every cube) = 82,512 Linear Nautical Miles = 18 NJS (8 + 2 + 5 + 1 + 2 = 18) and 82,512 x 6072’ (number of feet in a Nautical Mile) = 501,012,864 Nautical Feet = “27” (The full revelation of Messiah in Sacred Christian Canon (27 books)).
We may readily conclude from these cubic inch per gallon of water and water weight, using either US or Imperial Standard weight per gallon of water (8.35 Lb./US or 10.00 Lb./Imperial) that the quantity of water in both the Great Basin (18,000 gallons) and the total water in the 10 Lavers atop their carts/wheels equal to 3,600 gallons, that these calculations are highly suggestive that the Eternal God revealed in Messiah have but one goal: The New Jerusalem. The nature of the Almighty is persistent, consistent and relentlessly moving toward but one Divine Purpose: The New Jerusalem. This demonstrates the Eternal God’s quest for Eternal Relationship with the pinnacle of his creation: Humankind.
Gold, Silver, Precious Stones and Water – Atomic Weights
We can continue these extrapolations originating at the Sacred Basin of King Solomon and continue them indefinitely; for their amplifications persist beyond copper’s atomic weight, continue into the gold, silver, water and the versatility of onyx stone – elements which meet their compliments in those peculiar to Music, Physiology, Biology, Optics and probe the depths of Astronomy and, in particular, of our own Solar System, inner and outer planets, as well as “dwarf planets” extending to these planets’ diameters, orbits and distances from Earth…and all point to the New Jerusalem’s “Final Conclusion!”
“Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones…” (I Corinthians 3:12). These are the materials the believer must build with – for only these shall endure; all other “works” are burned in the fire. The “gold” of the New Jerusalem connotes the total transformation of the believer (so, the City is “pure gold” and the street is “clear gold” and the “silver” substantiates that “these are redeemed from among men” (Revelation 14:3-4; 21:18, 21).
Gold (Au) has 79 protons and electrons and 118 neutrons or 7 x 9 x 1 x 1 x 8 = 504 or the 5040 of Plato’s Optimal Number divided by “2” = the measurement of the Sacred Cubit: 2520.
Silver (Ag), which unequivocally presents the price of redemption, has 47 protons and electrons and 61 neutrons or 47 + 61 = 108 = 18 New Jerusalem Standard of Measurement.
Copper (Cu), there are 29 Proton/Electrons and 35 Neutrons with an atomic weight of 63.546 amu. Therefore: 29 + 35 = 64 and 2 x 9 x 3 x 5 x 6 x 4 = 6480 = 18 NJS (6 + 4 + 8 = 18) or 63.546 = 6 x 3 x 5 x 4 x 6 = 2160 = the Name of God (216) or the diameter of the Earth’s Moon (2160 miles) or the Circumference of the Earth in Nautical Miles (2160) and all the concomitant expressions of the New Jerusalem associated thereto.
The WATER OF LIFE – “water” has always connoted LIFE. In the New Jerusalem water plays a dominate role and all are encouraged to drink of the “water of Life freely” – for it is at the invitation of the Spirit and the Bride that all are encouraged to drink of this wondrous water:
“And the Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ and let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him TAKE THE WATER OF LIFE FREELY” (Revelation 22:17).
Therefore, and with such acclamation of Divine Intention – I leave you with this most astounding measurement of all the WATER of these Lavers and Great Basin and of the Water of Life that flows from the Throne of God and the Lamb in the New Jerusalem: “And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” (Revelation 22:1-2):
· 2 Hydrogen = 1 Proton/Electron + 1 Proton/Electron = 2
· Atomic Weight of Hydrogen: 1.00794 x 2 = 2.01588 +
· 1 Oxygen = 8 Protons/Electrons and 8 Neutrons or 8 + 8 = 16; therefore:
· Hydrogen = 2 + 16 of Oxygen = 18 Protons/Electrons/Neutrons and “18” is the New Jerusalem Standard
· Atomic Weight of Oxygen: 15.9994
· Precise Atomic Weight of Water:
2.01588 (Hydrogen) + 15.9994 (Oxygen) =
18.0153 (rounded to nearest ten-thousands.
· Molecular Weight of H20 returns 18.0153 = 18 NJS (1 + 8 + 1 + 5 + 3 = 18).
Therefore, the molecular weight of water is the sustenance – the Life-Giving Spirit – the all-sufficient cleansing of the priesthood and of the sacrifice which is for but one purpose = to cleanse and sustain the inhabitants of the New Jerusalem with the Water of Life – which is FREELY received. The atomic weight/molecular weight of hydrogen (1) + (1) = 2 Hydrogen + (1) Oxygen = 3 (Triune God) and these three concur but for one goal: The New Jerusalem – in that all their protons/electrons and neutrons and their very molecular weight in great precision equate to the 18 New Jerusalem Standard of measurement.
Also: 18 is not just the number for H2O but also for Carbon – Carbon is the “chemical basis of all physical life on Earth.” Carbon has an atomic weight of 12 or 6 protons, 6 electrons and 6 neutrons. If we separate out the electrons from the protons (for the “nucleus” of the atom is our base weight) and count the electrons separately, we will arrive at these “three sets” of 6 or 666 which, of course, equals to “18” NJS or the “number of a man, 666.” Carbon is necessary to form all DNA and RNA, the chemical code of life as it currently exists.
Revelation 13 points to the “666” as the “number” of the Beast. Interestingly enough, Carbon’s atomic number is “6” but its Atomic Mass is 12.0107 amu. – meaning 12.0107 = “11” (1 + 2 + 1 + 0 + 7) whereby the “666” and “11” are embodied in the Antichrist-Beast – the “11th Horn” – notwithstanding, this “negative” or “11” or, for that matter, “666” when “acted upon” by taking the sum of each digit (i.e., 6 + 6 + 6) sums to “18” – in other words, when acted upon by the Triune God even the “negative” is transformed into a “positive” – just as John Michell states when highlighting the number of “fusion” is “1746” arrived at when:
“The number 1,746 is a symbol of fusion between the negative and positive forces in nature, 1,080 and 666, of which it is the sum. It is the number by gematria of το πνευμα κοσμου, the Universal Spirit, which is the combination of those two forces, and it is the number of the name given to the light that streamed out of the holy of holies…The name of that light was the Glory of the God of Israel, ᾑ δοξα του θεου Ἱσραηηλ, 1,746.” (The Dimensions of Paradise, John Michell, p. 223).
What Michell failed to recognize is that all three number sets (666, 1080 and 1746) result in a “number sum” of “18” which is the New Jerusalem Standard and that “666” can be directly affected (yes, by the 1080 or “18”) by the “Name of God” in “216” or 6 x 6 x 6 = 216 (or three number sets of “72” as per Exodus 14:19-21).
Certainly, you may dismiss all this (and there are many more such measurements yet unexplored) but to be so trivial to dispense with the measurements of the Sacred Basin and all these 10 Carts/Lavers is not only preposterous but indicative of gross ignorance of these Divinely-Inspired texts. But as Jesus once said of the poor man in the bliss of “Abraham’s Bosom” – “though Moses would come back from the dead, they will not believe” – and so it is in our time…skeptics like Frosty and Ivan, unless Divine Intervention will save their wretched souls, their, as Jack Hook so clearly states, “sinful natures” will get the best of them and they will perish in their unbelief – sad but sorely true. And, like the fellow veteran in the coffee house: “Why is it that some find God in their foxholes and others just get bitter and scarcely find themselves?” Yet, someone out there really cares – though unseen . . . Oh Wow, Oh Wow, Oh Wow!
