The Star of David
Divine, Satanic or Happenstance Symbol?
Recently, a graduate studies student attending a seminary on the East Coast of the USA (May, 2014) wrote me a letter commenting and inquiring what I thought about the Magen David (Shield of David) or the Star of David. Her remarks were sincerely straightforward: It is an occult symbol used in magic and sorcery as a talisman; the object being “satanic” in its origins and, therefore, either purposefully and/or unwittingly adopted by both Jew and Christian, and the State of Israel (and Zionism), thereby signaling to the world of the occult—even to the “New World Order”—that Satan was alive and well. She then asked me what I thought about it.
Well, after seeing my evangelistic sister not only wearing it (all the time) as an ornament (necklace) but also placing a cross in the middle of it, one would have to conclude: Either the Liberty Baptist Seminarian or my sister in Georgia are sending mixed signals, to say the least, both to the world around them and/or someone is right or seriously wrong about this controversial object! What follows next was an initial attempt to answer both the seminarian, as well as my buddy, Patrick, who asked me to go beyond the immediate mathematics and geometry of this hexagonal (six-pointed) star created by overlaying in opposite directions two triangles; instead, he asked me to examine additional “prospects” to determine if it were integrated with the Dimensions of Paradise and, ipso facto, the Great Pyramid of Giza—one big order. The obvious appearance of the “Star” being geometric and lending itself to subsequent mathematical manipulation intrigued me.
Dear Patrick—we started out with this (below), the square surrounding the circle was the perimeter of the Great Pyramid of Giza (GPG) . . . we were attempting to understand if the Star of David, the Magen David, was naught but a mystical, magical, talisman used for sorcery among the Jews and therefore of “evil origin” or was it of more recent vintage, having been truly popularized by the Zionist movement and so adopted by them?
My studies have led me to believe that the symbol has a multiplicity of meanings – everything from benign and relatively innocent esoteric spirituality to what some would consider having “magical properties” (neither of which are “owned” by the other; with virtually all interpretations wide open for speculation) – but below, this is what I sent you to contemplate with the injunction: WHAT DO YOU SEE? Again, we have the 756 ft. of each base edge of the GPG surrounding the interior circle with the six-pointed Star of David in its midst . . . . (the Star is slightly tilted to the left):
PATRICK'S ANALYSIS OF THE ABOVE GEOMETRIC CONFIGURATION
After my good friend, Patrick, viewed the above (and initial) diagram of the lines drawn through the Star of David—all within the circle within the Great Pyramid of Giza—these were his comments, his analysis (now, mind you, bear with him because he's a commercial airline pilot and has much of our material in the past and is, therefore, familiar with these objects and their evaluations):
I see the base of the GPG as a square. This can be a reflection of the GPG below the surface in an inverted pyramid OR it could be the upper surface of a cube as if the GPG was resting upon the top of the cube. The Star of David appears to be a composite of two equilateral triangles offset laterally by 90 degrees. Ironically, the square as indicted is only visible after applying the step of converting or shall we say "connecting" the tips of the star via a circle then drawing the square within the circle. Amazing is the fact that all geometric figures that are part of our world's structures are or can be represented in one composite design. Only be rotating the image of the square to where the unique edge is horizontal, thus revealing the identity of the isosceles triangle [two equal sides only] contained within it, which is a potential representation of the GPG.
Interestingly, the powerful number twelve is revealed by the points along the circle, and we know that the reflection of the GPG below the surface must also contain four additional edges which would bring the total number of edges to 12. Finally, the only points that have not been connected by a straight line are a few of the points of the star, connecting them would complete the diagram and reveal a rectangle. That's about all I see right now but I have a feeling if I stare at it long enough I might see more.
Patrick did a good "fly over" for an initial evaluation. Now, let's get a backgrounder on the Magen David, and then delve into its primary and then expanded geometry. Interestingly enough, however, Patrick suggests that if the pyramidion are joined at their tips they will create isosceles triangles (6 each) and that they would also (by observation) create three rectangles having identicle widths and identicle lengths (though different dimensions of widths and lengths)—we will examine his potential within this paper. One thing is certain, Patrick nailed its identification with the Great Pyramid of Giza but could it likewise be identified with the geometry of the New Jerusalem?
ZIONISM ADOPTS THE MAGEN DAVID – Evil or Prophetic?
Before we go into some depth as to the geometry of the Star of David, the Magen David, the Shield of David . . . let us consider its origins, associations and ultimate adoption within the Zionist movement culminating as the national flag of Israel and its undeniable attachment to Judaism and the Jewish people in general.
Firstly, however, we must keep in mind and spirit that objects and their true meaning can be distorted from their original intent; for example, the RAINBOW was given by the Almighty as a sign in the heavens that He would never destroy the earth again by a flood – but the RAINBOW about the throne in the Revelation and surrounding the Mighty Angel which I believe is the Son of Man in Revelation 10 embraces this “covenantal promise” committed to man by the Almighty. However, that very SIGN – INSIGNIA – has been hijacked by the Gay-Pride Agenda, although it was initially an expression of the RAINBOW COALITION but now it has insinuated itself into the Gay Pride Agenda.
One’s prejudice concerning the Star of David (for good or evil) is a slate that cannot be wiped clean. Attempts at objectivity evade us. Notwithstanding, here we go into its history and legend. Cutting to the chase, what I have concluded, from the outset and on-going research, however, is this: The Star of David’s most recent and overwhelming affiliation insofar as its adaptation by the Jews was popularized when Zionism commenced in earnest in the 1800s and was adopted as the symbol of the Zionist Movement at their first congress in Basel, Switzerland in 1897—although its history dates back to King David (as legend).
It was found in some churches in the early Christian era; however, and although the Kabbalistic Jews did give it some credence in the 1300s it was altogether minimal and much to do about it being a talisman and a symbol of evil arose, most of which was based on legend. The Jewish Virtual library does an outstanding job of researching the origins and use of the Magen David. By the time one reads the collection of information derived therefore, one is left to surmise a wide variety of inclinations, suppositions and legends surrounding the Star of David. Some of their fine work is seen below in this quote:
The notion of a "shield of David" with magical powers was originally unconnected with the sign. It is difficult to say whether the notion arose in Islam, where the Koran sees David as the first to make protective arms, or from inner traditions of Jewish magic. From earlier times there is only one instance connecting the hexagram with the name David on a sixth-century tombstone from Taranto, southern Italy. There seems to have been some special reason for putting the hexagram before the name of the deceased. The oldest text mentioning a Shield of David is contained in an explanation of a magical "alphabet of the angel *Metatron" which stems from the geonic period and was current among the *Ḥasidei Ashkenaz of the 12th century. But here it was the holy Name of 72 names which was said to have been engraved on this protective shield, together with the name MKBY, which the tradition of the magicians connected with Judah Maccabee. In cognate sources this tradition was much embellished. The name of the angel Taftafiyyah, one of the names of Metatron, was added to the 72 holy names, and indeed an amulet in the form of a hexagram with this one name became one of the most widespread protective charms in many medieval and later manuscripts. (From c. 1500 onward the name Shaddai was often substituted for the purely magical one.) This must have provided the transition to the use of the term "magen David" for the sign. What caused the substitution of the figure instead of the "great name of 72 names" is not clear, but in the 16th century instructions can still be found stating that the shield of David should not be drawn in simple lines but must be composed of certain holy names and their combinations, after the pattern of those biblical manuscripts where the lines were composed of the text of the masorah. The oldest known witness to the usage of the term is the kabbalistic Sefer ha-Gevul, written by a grandson of Naḥmanides in the early 14th century. The hexagram occurs there twice, both times called "magen David" and containing the same magical name as in the aforementioned amulet, demonstrating its direct connection with the magical tradition. According to other traditions, mentioned in Isaac Arama's Akedat Yiẓḥak, the emblem of David's shield was not the image known by this name today, but Psalm 67 in the shape of the menorah. This became a widespread custom and the "menorah Psalm" was considered a talisman of great power. A booklet from the 16th century says: "King David used to bear this psalm inscribed, pictured, and engraved on his shield, in the shape of the menorah, when he went forth to battle, and he would meditate on its mystery and conquer."

Its true popularity among the Jews was distinguished primarily from the commencement of the Zionist movement (1800s) and the yearning in the heart of the Jews to return to their ancient homeland:
Rabbi Yehudah Shlomo Alkalay (1798-1878) and Rabbi Zevi Hirsch Kalischer (1795-1874) appeared in the mid-nineteenth century and were among the first proponents of Zionism to argue that Jewish settlement in Israel was a preparatory stage for the coming of the Messiah. A more modern utopian version of Zionism — based on a socialist perspective and framed in terms of moral necessity —was developed by Moses Hess (1812-1875). In his Rome and Jerusalem (1862), Hess argued that Jews were not a religious group but rather a separate nation characterized by a unique religion whose universal significance should be recognized. The attempts of religious reformers to mold Jewish ceremonies into a version of Christianity left only the skeleton of a once magnificent phenomenon in world history. The response, according to Hess, should be a political organization of Jews as well as the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine that would act as a spiritual center and a base for political action, embodying socialist principles within its institutions. (Jewish Virtual Library)
Hitler and others used it as a mark of racial hatred against the Jews and made them wear it as a “badge of shame.” The finest article I have found relative to the embrace of the Star of David by Israel (i.e., Zionism) and its identification to world Jewry in general is found at the official site of the State of Israel by their Ministry of Foreign Affairs (a well worth the read article); which summarizes the adoption of the Star of David as their national flag:
The blue and white stripes which symbolize a life of purity, guided by the precepts of the Torah, and the Star of David, which symbolizes rebirth and new life for the Jewish people, tie the State of Israel, through its flag, to the past, present and future. This is evidently why the Zionist flag prevailed [both in 1897 at the first Zionist Congress and later in 1948 in its official adoption as their national flag by the State of Israel – Krieger’s parenthesis] over the political considerations that had prompted the leaders of the new state to propose substitutes for it. (Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
If one studies the meaning of the Magen David by the Kabbalistic Jews themselves, its interpretation is pretty benign – there’s no magic associated with it that I can find that’s “justifiable” or given credence nor are its origins steeped in magic as some would dearly wish to believe; notwithstanding, all sorts of conjectures are given . . . which I fear are designed to stigmatize the Jews. It, at best, given its modern meaning, is directly associated with the Zionist movement and the quest for a Jewish National Homeland (Wikipedia) – it is SYMBOLIC ONLY. It can and has been interpreted in so many ways that it merits a hodgepodge of interpretations, much like the RAINBOW.
I say we, since the devil pinned it on the Jews during Hitler’s reign of terror, must take a MUCH CLOSER LOOK at its math and understand the profound significance of its geometry (math and geometry that the Jews and Christians may not have noticed – but surely, the devil who knows he has but a short time, is well aware of its symbolic measurements and introduced its so-called malignant identifications as his own—just as he has attempted to hijack the Rainbow).
Astonishing, and as we shall shortly see, the Star of David and its “extensions” lend themselves wholly to the measurements of the New Jerusalem. When integrated with the measurements and geometry of the Great Pyramid of Giza (GPG), the Star of David expands those prophetic themes with grandeur—utterly amazing. Could it be that as the Almighty stirred within the Jews to return to their ancient homeland in preparation for the coming of the Son of Man at the “end of time” that He gave them this symbol and is now making it known by its geometry and math, while it very well could bear a prescient message of divine deliverance and hope for the world? Yes, the “enemy of our souls’ knew of its measurements—just as he knows the real meaning of the RAINBOW—but, alas, as Hitler did, even so, the “enemy of our souls” corrupting imprint deigns to deceive and distort the “6” for it is man’s number as is the six-pointed Star of David.
The Geometry of the Star of David & Its Expansion in the GPG
Firstly, however, the hexagon itself as a six-sided object or the six-pointed Star of David (the number “6”) created by the overlay of two triangles in opposite directions is what is called in “Sacred Geometry” the “perfect number” in that the factors of 6 are 1, 2, and 3, so that 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 or 1 x 2 x 3 = 6 with the next perfect number being 28 derived from 1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28 and the third such number being 496, etc. Its geometry is considered “perfection” and the most malleable to manipulate; likewise, it is riveted upon man for on the sixth day was he created and has been given 6,000 years in the numbering of his days.
We must keep in mind that the geometry of the Magen David itself is a total of 2520° wherein 1080 degrees are totaled in its 6 pyramidion (points of the Star) and 1,440 degrees in its 12 ea. 120 degree parts (known as “supplementary” angles seen between each of the points of the Star, as well as within each of the interior bends of the hexagon. The six triangles of the Magen David each being 180 degrees X 6 is equal to 1080° + 1440° (the 12 each 120 degree supplementary angles so formed by the 2 large inverted triangles of the Star of David) = 2520°.
Those of you familiar with our writings grasp the “18” and the “144” as peculiar to the “Dimensions of Paradise”—the New Jerusalem in that her revelation as found in Revelation 21:16-17 give clear evidence that she is in the form of a cube wherein “The city 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.”
The furlong is measured as 660 ft. At 12,000 furlongs X 660 ft. her edge is equal to 7,920,000 ft. ÷ 5,280 ft. (one mile) is equal to 1,500 linear miles X 12 (number of edges in a cube) will equal to 18,000 miles; hence, the “18” of the New Jerusalem. We can also eliminate zero from the 12,000 and arrive at “144” by multiplying 12 X 12 is equal to 144 on each of her six faces; whereas, her “Wall” is measured as 144 cubits (Revelation 21:17).
The 2520 is a fractal of the 25.20 inches of the Hebrew Sacred Cubit which this author, as well as the late David Flynn (among others), summarily concluded was this dimension and throughout the King James Version of the Bible (nigh miraculously preserved therein–and I’m no KJV only guy).
It may be pointed out that the “18” and the “144” as factors, when multiplied, produce a product which is the fractal of the Great Processional of the Equinoxes as in: 18 X 144 is equal to 2,592 (the Great Processional of the Equinoxes is 25,920 years with each of its 12 “traditional” constellations bearing 2,160 years or 12 X 2,160 years is equal to 25,920 years). This is one of the glaring reasons why this author views the “Woman of Revelation 12” as not only Israel but is representative of the Church and Israel—the Woman of Genesis 3:15 (aka, the Protoevangelium) wherein the Woman’s Seed (Messiah) would bruise the serpents head, though the serpent would bruise His heel (the crucifixion of Christ).
Now, allow me to jump ahead a bit before we actually discuss the “extended geometry” of the Star of David. Initially, and in order to do this, we are obliged to place the Star of David into a circle drawn whose perimeter touches the four sides of the base of the Great Pyramid of Giza (GPG). By placing the Star into the interior of the circle all six of its points (pyramidion) touch the perimeter at six equally spaced distances along its circumference (blue lines).
We are going to expand the GPG’s circle’s potential by extending 3 additional lines (red lines) to complete the duodecimal (i.e., “the system of twelve”) expression around the perimeter of its circle as seen below with simple “dots” indicating where lines can bisect the center of the circle and extend to the other side of the circle. Again, we placed the Magen David (six-pointed star or two inverted triangles) inside the circle (blue lines) which is surrounded by the four-square base of the Great Pyramid of Giza (dark black perimeter lines).
We are viewing the GPG (4-sq. of the Great Pyramid of Giza as the four-square containing the circle and triangles). I simply extended three extra lines (in red and colored the original Star in blue) and have created a platform with 12 equilateral triangles. These are the smaller 180 degree ones - there are, of course, others which overlap; however, these 12 do not overlap each other. The six new triangles were created within the hexagon itself.
Do not concern yourself at the present with the interior red-dotted square lines; however, please note that in this dotted square two of the four vertices were made from the original Star of David and the other two vertices were made by one of the line extensions, the Star being slightly tilted to the left in its original position in the graphic previous to this one at the start of this article. Again, all the points of the Star (6) and the lines bisecting the middle of the circle and extending out to the perimeter of the circle (6 points each) are equally spaced along the circumference of the interior circle of the GPG, while the circle itself theoretically touches the base perimeter of the GPG in four separate places, if you would, left/right and top/bottom.
Therefore, 12 X 180 degrees (180° per 12 triangles) = 2160 degrees; however, all lines formed within the circle produce an additional 120 degrees (but are not triangles, just supplementary angles of 60 degree (2 ea. X 60° = 120° when added together) or 6 x 120° = 720 degrees.
If these angles are added to the 2160° + 720° = 2880° thereby producing the two sets, again, of the 144 or 2880° ÷ 2 = 1440° which is likewise the perimeter of the base of the GPG itself at 3024 ft. ÷ 2.1 ft. (one Hebrew Sacred Cubit) = 1,440 Hebrew Sacred Cubits (HSC). Here the number of degrees vs. the number of Hebrew Sacred Cubits is 1,440 each but in degrees or HSC but all within the base parameter of the GPG.
Again, this “288” throughout antiquity connotes, I believe, the two sets of 144,000 found in Revelation 7 (Israel – sealed upon the earth prior to the Wrath of the Lamb) and in Revelation 14 (the Church raptured to the Heavenly Mt. Zion prior to the Wrath of the Lamb) and then found on all sides of the New Jerusalem or 12 x 12 = 144 (i.e., 12,000 furlongs X 12,000 furlongs = 144,000,000 sq. furlongs per each face for “Its length, breadth, and height are equal” Rev. 21:16.), and, of course, the Wall of the New Jerusalem is “144 cubits” or 144 X 2.1 ft. (HSC) = 302.4 ft. (a fractal of the base edge of the GPG itself at 756 ft. X 4 = 3024 ft.
All 3 lines intersecting the esoteric center of the circle are 756 ft. (for this is the diameter of the interior circle).
Therefore: There are 3 additional 756-foot "base lines" + the 4 on the perimeter for a total of 7 X 756 ft. = 5,292 ft. ÷ 2.1 ft. (Sacred Cubit) = 2,520 HSC or the very fractal of the HSC itself (viz., 25.20 inches)!
The precise fractal of the HSC can only be discovered if such a circle with the Star of David is inserted in its midst thereby demanding that additional equal-distance lines be drawn around the circle (providing us 12 equal arcs along the circle formed within the four-square base of the Great Pyramid of Giza) totaling 3 ea. 756-foot lines as per the duodecimal system of measurement—again: 7 lines (3 interior of the circle and 4 on the perimeter of the GPG) X 756 ft. = 5,292 ft. ÷ 2.1 ft. (HSC) = 2520 HSC.
This SAME reflection can be replicated if the GPG were cubed making it 6 faces or 6 X 2520 HSC = 15,120 HSC and then doubled (as an octahedron) = 15,120 HSC X 2 = 30,240 HSC or the fractal of the perimeter of the four-square base of the GPG expressed in feet at 3024 ft. (4 X 756 ft. = 3024 ft.).
I repeat: The 7 ea. 756 ft. lines (4 on her perimeter or 3024 ft.) + 3 on the interior of the circle so formed (i.e. 3 X 756 ft. = 2268 ft.) or 3,024 ft. + 2,268 ft. = 5,292 ft. ÷ 2.1 ft. (HSC) = 2520 Hebrew Sacred Cubits—this is most amazing.
We are literally getting two sets of 2520s—one geometric and the other dimensional. The one set in degrees taken from the Star of David itself (as shown above) and the other taken from the Hebrew Sacred Cubit by combining the seven sets of 756 ft. lines taken from the 3 on the interior of the circle bisecting its center and the four-square perimeter of the (GPG) (i.e., 7 X 756 ft. = 5,292 ft.) and converting the 5,292 ft. into Hebrew Sacred Cubits (i.e., 5,292 ft. ÷ 2.1 ft. (HSC) = 2520 HSC).
Please note that none of the points of the Magen David created by the overlaid triangle lines are 756 ft. The seven sets of 756 ft. are derived from the four-square base of the GPG and the three additional lines drawn to create the 12 equidistant points along the circle drawn within the GPG.
Again, our two sets of “2520” are derived from the Magen David as so described in degrees (2520°) and the other created by the 2520 HSC formed from the perimeter of the GPG + the 3 interior lines which bisect the circle so created—together these two sets of 2520 X 2 = 5040 which is Plato's Optimal Number for Societal Harmony wherein the City of Magnesia (system of 12) is juxtaposed to Atlantis (system of 10) – for in the Revelation the “12” triumphs over the “10.”
Astronomical Confirmations of the Star of David – Leading to the New Jerusalem
Be it known that the radii of the Moon (1080 miles) and of the Earth (3960 miles) are equal to 5040 miles and that 1 X 2 X 3 X 4 X 5 X 6 X 7 = 5040, and 7 X 8 X 9 X 10 = 5040 and that their sum: 5040 + 5040 = 10080 (combined diameters of the Earth and Moon), or the diameter of the Moon (2160 miles) and of the Earth (7920 miles) are equal to 10080 miles (which again is a fractal of the New Jerusalem’s linear, 12-edged perimeter of 18,000 miles or “18” = “18”).
Since the “esoteric radius” of the combined Earth and Moon is 5040 miles (i.e., two sets of 2520) it would mean that if a circle were made from their combined radii by doubling their radii (or 5040 miles X 2 equals a diameter of 10080 miles) then the circumference of the circle created from this 10080-mile diameter would be: C (circumference) = Pi X d (diameter) or 3.142857 X 10080 miles = 31680 miles.
Yes, be it known that having found this “Altar unto the Lord in the midst of Egypt, and a Pillar to the Lord at its border” (lit. Giza; Isaiah 19:19) we’ve discovered that “embedded” within its foundation is the “5040” or the two sets of 2520 created by the degrees of the Star of David’s geometric marvel and the surrounding measurements (in Hebrew Sacred Cubits) of the interior circle’s circumference embracing the Star of David added to the perimeter of that Pillar to the Lord at Giza (i.e., 7 X 756 ft. = 5,292 ft. ÷ 2.1 ft. (HSC) = 2520 HSC).
And what of the circumference created from this “5040” (i.e., having started out as two sets of “2520” from the Star of David . . . moving toward the creation of two sets of 5040 discovered in the combined radii of the Earth and Moon and then doubling them for their total diameters at 10080 and therefrom to form the great Earth/Moon esoteric circle/circumference at 31680 miles)?
Yes, it is equal to 31680 miles but far more . . . far, far more. Since the Star of David has generated the “5040” connoting Plato’s Optimal Number for Societal Harmony (i.e., two sets of the Hebrew Sacred Cubit of 25.20 ins. or 2520 X 2 – 5040) . . . that same doubling of the Star’s 2520 now creates the 31680-mile circumference from the diameter of the 5040 radii of the Earth and the Moon off its 10080-mile diameter. Now, the miracle takes place orchestrated by the astronomical, archaeological and cosmic wonderment as the New Jerusalem descends to Earth with her 12,000 furlong base edge wherein her “length, breadth, and height are equal” (Revelation 21:16) thereby we calculate “the city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth” (Rev. 21:16); therefore: 12,000 furlongs X 660 ft. (one furlong) = 7,920,000 feet X four-square = 31,680,000 feet or “31680” the fractal of the Star’s magnificence.
31,680 Miles + 31,680 (New Jerusalem Perimeter) = 63,360
It appears likely that the 31,680 of the Star of David (generated from the Star’s two sets of 2520 equaling 5040 which we projected to the combined radii of the Earth and Moon, ultimately gave us a combined diameter and esoteric circumference of a circle bearing 31,680 miles. This 31,680 miles is a fractal of the New Jerusalem’s four-square base perimeter. Her four-square perimeter is calculated at 7920 X 4-sq. = 31,680).
What we’ve done with the Star of David is to place it, on the one hand, within the GPG, but, on the other hand, and as a consequence to this placement, catapulted it to embrace the Earth and its Moon—“For the Earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell herein.” (Psalm 24:1); and again:
“Now a great sign appeared in heaven:
A woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet,
And on her head a garland of twelve stars.”
It is here that I wish to bring to our attention that what appears as a “great sign in the heaven” is comprised of the Woman who is truly the expression of the Earth, for it is here that God’s eternal plan and purpose for the ages is fulfilled. The Woman is, however, clothed with the Sun, for she does not express her own righteousness but that of the Sun of Righteousness (Malachi 4:1-2). The Moon is beneath her feet and atop her head she is bedecked with a garland with twelve constellations (aka, stars).
Thus, we have the measurement of the Earth (792); the measurement of the Moon (216); and the measurement of the Mazzaroth/Zodiac, 2592 (dropping all zeroes from their dimensions); whereby we discover: 792 + 216 + 2592 is equal to 3,600 or the insignia of the Eternal God as in 360° of a circle, without beginning or ending. Now, if we drop the zeroes in 3600 we secure “36” and if the Eternal God is added to the Sun’s Diameter of 864,000 miles (dropping zero as well) we find that 36 + 864 is equal to “9” (i.e., “900”) wherein this “9” is the End, the Omega, the Last—it is the finality of the “single digit numbers” wherein all combinations of these NINE numbers constitute all other number sets/combinations positive or negative.
Likewise, this “9” is reflective, once again, of the Sun of Righteousness in that there are 8 planets of the Solar System, plus one Sun will equal 9.
When we combine these two sets of 31,680 we arrive at 63,360 (i.e., 31,680 + 31,680 combined is equal to 63,360). This can be seen as 6…33…6 wherein man’s number “6” is seen on either side of the “33” which is the age of Messiah Who came as the “Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world” . . . for was not “the Christ, the Messiah” between two thieves when He was “cut off” (Daniel 9:26)?
Is this the meaning of these two combined sets of 31,680? Indeed, He “loved the Church and gave Himself for her”—for the New Jerusalem, whose gates bear the names of the 12 Patriarchs of Israel and whose foundations bear the names of the 12 Apostles of the Lamb, the Church. Both bear witness to the 6336 in that “in her midst” is the “Lamb upon the throne” (Revelation 5:6, 13). Likewise, 63,360 ÷ 5,280 (i.e., the fractal of the number of feet in one mile) is equal to 12 . . . confirming the duodecimal system of divine measurement.
The “288” or Two Sets of “144” – Creating the Hexagon
Initially, we geometrically calculated the original 2520° from the Magen David itself (six pyramidion triangles at 180° each will equal 1,080° + 12 each 120° supplementary/adjacent angles totally 1,440° so that 1,080° + 1,440° equals 2,520° degrees; and then by creating the dodecagon we netted an additional 360° to arrive at 2,520° + 360° equals to 2,880°.
Then we discovered by drawing the Star of David inside the Great Pyramid of Giza’s Interior Circle we were able to create 12 equilateral triangles (via 3 sets of 756 ft. lines) of 180 degrees X 12 will equal 2160 degrees + 6 ea. 120 degree supplementary angles is equal to 720 degrees + the original 2160 degrees which in turn equals to 2,880 degrees giving us an additional set of “288” . . . again, all this by drawing three additional bisecting lines within the circle.
If but one set of these 2,880 degrees are multiplied by 6 faces of a cube the total degrees will equal to 17,280 degrees (i.e., 6 X 2,880° is equal to 17,280°) which is the "1728" of the perfect cubic measurement (or 12 x 12 x 12 is equal to 1728) which is likewise the cubic measurement of the New Jerusalem if all zeroes are dropped from the 12,000 furlongs—its height, length and width being the same at 12,000 furlongs or 12 x 12 x 12 is equal to 1728 cubic furlongs.
(1) The one you see to the right/above created by the hexagon gives us 2880°
(2) The 12 triangles created in the interior of the GPG circle (180° X 12 equals 2160°) plus 120° X 6 equals 720° of supplementary angles) so that 2160° + 720° equals 2880°.
Therefore, from the hexagon and from the expansion of the Star of David by inserting three bisecting lines whereby 12 ea. triangles were created (180° X 12 equals 2,160°) + the additional 720° from the six supplementary angles, giving us 2,880°. These two sets of 2,880° are equal to 5,760°.
I do find it interesting, then, that these two sets of 2520 (HSC and the plain Star of David in degrees) aforementioned equaling to 5040 and these two sets of 2880° equaling to 5760°, when added together: 5040 + 5760 equals 10800 or the “18” of the New Jerusalem (i.e., 12,000 furlongs X 660 ft. (1 furlong) is equal to 7,920,000 ft. ÷ 5,280 ft. (one British Imperial Mile) equals 1,500 Miles X 12 (edges of a cube) equals 18,000 Linear Miles or “18” (a bit of mixing apples and oranges in that the 5760 is strictly in degrees and the 5040 is both in HSC and degrees).
All this is under the DUODECIMAL SYSTEM OF MEASUREMENT - ONLY!
Conforming to the New Jerusalem
The circumference of the circle formed within the GPG is 2,376 ft. (3.14313+ X 756 ft. equals to 2,376 ft.). This dimension is compliant only when you use the Giza Pi at 480.9 ft. ÷ 153 euals 3.143137254901961). This circumference of 2,376 ft. when added to the 3,024 ft. base perimeter of the GPG or 2376 ft. + 3024 ft. equals to 5400 ft. This “5400” can be seen as Plato's Optimal Number for Societal Bliss (as in 5040 or 54) and when divided by 2 as in 5040 divided by 2 equals 2520 ft. which again is the fractal of the 25.20 inches of the Hebrew Sacred Cubit. Likewise, we may take the 5400 ft. (5040 ft.) X 12 inches to equal 64,800 inches divided by 2 equals 32,400 or the “3204” of the base perimeter of the GPG itself at 3024 ft. or “324” equals “324.”
If the entire GPG were cubed with these configurations, we would have: 5400 ft. multiplied by 6 equals 32,400 ft. or the fractal of the four-square base edge of the GPG’s 3,024 ft. Likewise, if we were to take the 5400 ft. and view it as “5040” (Plato’s Optimal Number of Societal Harmony) and multiply it by six faces of a cube, we would arrive at 5040 X 6 equals 14,400 or the "144" of the New Jerusalem! (Please Note: 756 ft. X 4 base edges of the GPG equals 3,024 ft. divided by 2.1 ft. (HSC) are equal to 1,440 HSC.). In that the GPG so clearly expresses the Dimensions of Paradise under the dominion of the HSC, this author is persuaded that the Egyptian Royal Cubit in its manifold forms (20.61818+ inches, 20.63 inches, etc.) does not do this "Pillar of Enoch" any favors; frankly, because the Egyptians are the first to admit they did not build the GPG! The base edge of Giza at 756 ft. divided by 20.63 inches is equal to a decimal-bound configuration of 439.7479398933592 ERC (Egyptian Royal Cubits) X 4 base edges = 1,758.991759573437 inches. Whereas, 756 ft. X 12 inches = 9,072 inches divided by 25.20 inches (HSC) = precisely 360 HSC X 4 base edges = 1,440 HSC; thus, the 360 degrees of the circle and the 144 of the New Jerusalem are immediately expressed by using the HSC.
What Does the Red-Dotted Square Do to the Interior Circle of the GPG?
Now, notice the red-dotted square in the interior of the circle which automatically divides the circumference of the circle within the Great Pyramid of Giza into four separate segments on its circumference/perimeter; therefore 2,376 ft. (circumference) ÷ 4 is equal to 594 ft. X 2 equals 1188 ft. (one-half the circumference of the circle). Thus, what we are witnessing are really four sets of “18” wherein we see 1…18…8 (2 sets each) or four sets of “18” or 594 ft. X 12 in. equals 7,128 ins. X 4 (the entire circumference) equals 28,512 inches. This is a most “esoteric” number which when divided by “3168” (the perimeter of the four-square New Jerusalem or 7,920,000 ft. X 4 is equal to 31,680,000 Linear Ft. or “3168”) produces the following: 28512 ÷ 3168 equals 9.
What am I saying? I am saying that the interior circle of the Great Pyramid of Giza at precisely 2,376 ft. (circumference) X 12 inches is equal to 28,512 inches divided by 3168 (the base fractal perimeter of the four-square New Jerusalem) is equal to 9.
This “9” throughout antiquity and via the Dimensions of Paradise connotes the very Omega, the End, the Last—the Coming of the Sun of Righteousness—if you would, the “Ninth Ray” wherein the eight planets of our solar system + the one star equals 8 + 1 equals 9 and “9” as Gonz Shimura (Canary Cry Radio) brought out seems to be the overwhelming popularity of all number sums connected to the New Jerusalem wherein 144 equals 1 + 4 + 4 equals 9; 792 equals 7 + 9 + 2 equals 18 is equal to 1 + 8 which in turn equals to 9; 3168 equals 3 + 1 + 6 + 8 which equals 18 which in turn is equal to 1 + 8 which equals 9, etc. That is simply due to the spiritual fact that Christ is the sum of all things!
Certainly, we can tell from the 756 ft. base X 4 is equal to 3024 ft. of the Great Pyramid of Giza vs. the New Jerusalem’s 792 (7,920,000 ft.) or 792 less 756 equals 36 (which is the fractal of the 360 degree circle inside the Great Pyramid of Giza) and the blatant fact that when you deduct the following it exposes the 3168 (Jerusalem’s base perimeter eliminating all zeroes) minus 3024 (Giza’s base perimeter in feet) equals 144 which in turn equals the Wall of the New Jerusalem.
The Gentiles Join the Commonwealth of Israel – Amplifying the Star of David
By creating a twelve-sided object (i.e., a “dodecagon”) from the equally distributed points established by both the points of the Star of David touching the interior circle of the GPG (6 places on the circle) and the three 756 ft. lines (equating to the diameter of the interior circle and 6 additional places on the circle) complimenting the Star, we have automatically designed a second set of twelve scalene (unequal sided) triangles (1a through 12a). I hasten to add that the 12 scalene triangles are each 180° but remain “distinct” juxtaposed to their counterparts: The 12 equilateral triangles which comprise the actual Star of David (i.e., her six pyramidion + her six triangles created within her hexagon via the lines so drawn).
Once we accomplish this (i.e., the creation of the 12 scalene triangles) we eliminate the six 120° supplementary angles (which were missing a third side/leg) and instead now we have two sets of twelve triangles: 12 scalene and 12 equilateral within the circle; however, each set of 12 in degrees is equal to 2,160° or 12 X 180° = 2,160°. When doubled (i.e., 2 X 2,160° = 4,320°) the total degrees becomes a fractal of the Sun’s radius (432,000 miles). This can only be accomplished by the creation of the dodecagon–the twelve-sided object which allowed us to make the 12 scalene triangles in the first place.
There are several ways to view the twenty-four triangles. Within the 360° interior circle the 12 scalene triangles surround the 12 equilateral triangles from “afar.” In other words this set of scalene triangles when joined to the Star of David, included and/or affixed themselves to the original 12 equilateral triangles. If we consider the original 12 equilateral triangles configured from the Star of David by the addition of the three 756 ft. diameter lines bisecting the Star akin to the 12 Tribes of Israel, then the Gentiles who have obtained redemption through Messiah could be considered as the 12 Apostles of the Lamb (i.e., the Church) with the composite 24 (i.e., 12 + 12 = 24) representative of the governance of the New Jerusalem wherein “she” is described having:
Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates,
and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel . . . Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the
twelve Apostles of the Lamb
(Revelation 21:12 and 14).
Please note that the “2160” is a fractal of the Nautical Earth (viz. at 21,600 nautical miles (NM) based upon 360° of a circle X 60 nautical miles per degree = 21,600 NM). Both sets of 12 triangles comport to 2160°--however, the “interior” and/or the one closer to the Earth (the Star of David) is positioned to its counterpart 12 scalene triangles which surround the Star of David and are “above”—this could constitute the “appearance” as the “heavens” juxtaposed to the Star of David upon the “earth.” Even so, Ezekiel 40-48 shows the “earthly” aspects of the New Jerusalem; whereas Revelation 21 shows the “heavenly” aspects of the New Jerusalem.
The 24 hours of the day (evening of 12 hours and morning of 12 hours) comports to the divine establishment of time. When we consider “time” being 12 hours X 60 minutes per hour = 720 minutes X 60 seconds = 43,200 seconds (per ½ of a day), this in turn amplifies the 4320 degrees created by the 24 triangles within the interior circle of the GPG; especially when we combine the 43,200 seconds of one-half day with the 43,200 seconds of the other half of the day equaling 86,400 seconds or the fractal of the Sun’s diameter of 864,000 miles. We do have two sets of 2,160° (12 Triangles X 180° equals 2,160° + 12 Triangles X 180° equals 2,160° and together these 24 Triangles equal to 4,320°).
Also, if these 24 triangles were amplified upon six faces of the GPG’s cube we would have: 24 triangles (one face) X 6 = 144 triangles which equates to each face of the New Jerusalem’s 12,000 furlongs X 12,000 furlongs (for her length, height and width are the same – Rev. 21:16) = 144,000,000 sq. furlongs or 12 X 12 = 144).
What I find somewhat fascinating is the potential that if we take the 4,320 degrees created by the “24 Elders” (aka, 24 triangles within the interior circle of the GPG base) X 6 faces of a cube (if the GPG were “cubed”) we discover that 4320° X 6 cubed faces = 25,920° or the fractal of the 25,920 years of the Great Processional of the Equinoxes (i.e., the 144 triangles X 180° = 25,920°). The Mazzaroth or Zodiac which is the “garland of 12 constellations” above the Woman’s head in Revelation 12 is, therefore, substantiated. The Woman of Revelation 12 is the composite redeemed community destined for the ultimate manifestation of the one Bride of Messiah, i.e., Israel and the Church.
The Star of David itself is comprised of 18 segmented lines (6 triangles) when the two main triangles are superimposed the one upon the other—one facing upwards (to the Heavens) and the other facing downwards to the Earth, another possibility developes. Is this depicting the “heavenly character” of the Church whose “spiritual battle” is in the heavens, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in THE HEAVENLY PLACES” (Ephesians 6:12); whereas Israel’s struggles are with the Gentile World Powers on the Earth; for: “Why do the Gentiles rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Messiah…Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion” (Psalm 2:1 and 6).
The one, the Church, sanctifies the Heavens; the other, Israel, sanctifies the Earth— thus, the “unseen” and the “seen” undergo final redemption.
However, if one were to view the Star of David just from the outside, all interior line segments would be enshrouded behind 12 separate lines, with the hexagon on the interior remaining undisclosed from the outside looking into the Star of David. Likewise, the 12-sided dodecagon formed upon the 12 points of the circumference of the interior circle of the GPG would constitute the other 12 sides; thus 12 + 12 = 24 or the 24 elders of the New Jerusalem with 12 from “afar” (i.e., the Gentiles brought into the Church becoming a part of the “Commonwealth of Israel” and seen in the 12 Apostles of the Lamb). These 12 are viewed upon the exterior of the Star of David itself and the Star of David proper as the “12 of Israel.”
So, both sets of line segments: 12 forming the exterior dodecagon (i.e., the Church) and 12 forming the “face” of the Star of David (i.e., 6 pyramidion of the Star of David X 2 legs each = 12 legs of the Star of David shown with the interior line segments (6 each) forming an interior hexagon).
If the 12 on the exterior (i.e., the Church) are added to the six-sided hexagon in the center of the Star of David they equal to “18” (i.e., 12 + 6 = 18) and the same for the 12 segments of the lines comprising the Star of David’s points + 6 (the hexagon) is equal to 18 . . . both are destined to the New Jerusalem’s “18.”
The Curious Observations of Patrick Harbron
At the beginning of this article I mentioned my friend Patrick Harbron who is a commercial airline pilot. Patrick observed that the Star of David was placed within the GPG and then if we were to join its six points by six straight lines that we would create an additional six isosceles triangles (two legs only the same length), as well as three rectangles with their widths the same dimension and their lengths the same dimension but not the same dimensions as a square but different dimensions for the widths vs. the lengths.
What might this observation produce? Certainly, an additional six triangles will produce 180 degrees X 6 equals 1080 degrees or the insignia of the New Jerusalem's "18" to match the same insignia created by the six pyramidion of the Star of David itself or 1080 degrees equal to "18." Together these 12 triangles are equal to: 1080 + 1080 = 2160 degrees + the 120 degrees on each of the interior hexagon's "bends" would add another 720 degrees (6 X 120 deg. are equal to 720 degrees) and ultimately give us 2160 deg. + 720 deg. equal to 2880 degrees, which in turn produces two sets of "144" mirroring, again, both Israel and the Church as originally presented in Revelation 7 and Revelation 14 (i.e., the two groups of 144,000).
Each of the three rectangles have four 90 degree right angles or 4 X 90 deg. equals to 360 degrees per each rectangle X 3 each is equal to 1080 degrees. When this 1080 degrees is added to the 12 triangles (2160) it totals to 3,240 degrees (i.e., 1080 deg. + 2160 deg. equals 3,240 degrees). This "3240" is a fractal of the 3024 or "324" = "324" of the base perimeter of the GPG.
This, of course, still leaves the interior hexagon's angles created initially by the Star of David or 120 degrees X 6 such angles is equal to 720 degrees. Now when we add these 720 degrees (which would constitute all the angles available to us comprised of the 12 isosceles triangles created (2160 degrees) and the 12 right angles derived from the three rectangles created (1080 degrees) and now add in the 720 degrees derived from the interior hexagon's angles (120 deg. each) then our total comes to: 2160 degrees + 1080 degrees + 720 degrees is equal to: 3,960 degrees. This "3960" is a fractal of the radius of the Earth or 3960 miles and it is also one-half (as a fractal) of one of the edges of the New Jerusalem or 7,920,000 ft. divided by 2 is equal to 3,960,000 ft. or "3960" equals "3960."
Thus, the Moon's diameter can be seen herein as 2160 degrees (as in 2,160 miles) or a picture of the Nautical Earth at 21,600 Nautical Miles or "216." The diameter of the Moon at 2160 miles (i.e., 2160 degrees) as well as the Moon's radius at 1080 in miles (i.e., 1080 degrees) are in view here. By combining the radii of the Earth and the Moon (3960 with the 1080) we arrive again at 5040 (as miles), Plato's Optimal Number of Societal Harmony which can be divided by 2 to arrive at the Hebrew Sacred Cubit (i.e., 5040/2 = 2520 or 25.20 inches). This then allows us the "Great Circle" formed by the diameters of both the Earth and the Moon combined at 10080 miles and from thence the circumference at 31,680 miles which is a fractal of the New Jerusalem's four-square base or 7920 (as in 7,920,000 ft.) X 4 = 31,680+ (as in 31,680,000 linear ft.) both giving us the number of man in that if we divide 31,680 or 31,680,000 ft. by 5,280 ft. (one mile) we arrive at 6,000. Could it be that the New Jerusalem is created during a 6,000 year period of time?
Obviously, the Star of David has many more statements to be made--this one article can not contain them all!
The nigh sinister attachment wrought by “satanic influences” to mastermind the notion that the hexagram’s six-sided nature has somehow transfigured itself into a five-sided pentagram, wholly associated with witchcraft and sorcery of the worst order, in order to implicate Israel in some kind of world-wide occult plot to subvert the world and/or to create a New World Order is just plain balderdash, absurd, wrong-headed thinking and lacks historic and mathematical credibility.
The Church for centuries made use of this superimposed triangulation; whereas it is of recent vintage in its ascription to Zionism . . . the Jewish quest for a national homeland, having been scattered throughout their Diaspora for centuries but returning to their ancient homeland and declaring themselves as an independent State in 1948 and so recognized by the United Nations in 1949.
What I am suggesting by the abundance of the abovementioned math and complimentary geometry is this: The Jews somehow adopted the Star of David as their longed-for national movement for their own State (i.e., Zionism).
Embedded within the triangulations of the Star of David is its peculiar association with the Land of Egypt from whence Israel was held in bondage by this Gentile World Power only to be freed through divine deliverance from whence they were ransomed in order to “possess the land” promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: Eretz Israel; ipso facto, the use of the world’s last Wonder of the World still standing, the Great Pyramid of Giza wherein the Star of David is placed.
Now, at their miraculous re-gathering to their ancient homeland—notwithstanding the theological skeptics on both Jewish (for many Orthodox, both modern and ultra deny that THIS is the long-promised “return of the exiles” to their ancient homeland) and Christian (for many Catholic, Orthodox and Reform/Historicist, as well as Post and Amil. and Preterist acclaim no prophetic fulfillment and even some ardent Christian fundamentalists deny Zionism’s claim to the land as a prophetic legacy)—they find themselves encircled by these same Gentile World Powers; however, and simultaneously, their insertion within the base measurements of the Great Pyramid of Giza reveals that they are likewise encircled by those from among the Gentiles who have been in-grafted into the Commonwealth of Israel (“[Gentiles] being aliens from the Commonwealth of Israel” (Eph. 2:12).
What we have here abundantly appears to be a phantasmagoric prophetic statement of immense significance unbeknown to BOTH Israel and the Church at the close of this age affixed to the very in-gathering of the exiles as both the logo of their Zionist pride (aka, the Magen David, Shield of David, Star of David adopted as the symbol of Zionism and as the flag of the State of Israel) and as a “badge of shame” mandated upon them by their enemies . . . as well as what appears to be a mathematical and geometric marvel acclaiming the Church’s witness and relationship with “Prophetic Israel” in the Latter Days—a true expression of Biblical Zionism laced with astounding prophetic implications.
When Christian X, King of Denmark, in the 1940s heard that the Nazis were to place the “yellow badge of shame” upon all Danish Jews he wrote:
"When you look at the inhumane treatment of Jews, not only in Germany but occupied countries as well, you start worrying that such a demand might also be put on us, but we must clearly refuse such this due to their protection under the Danish constitution. I stated that I could not meet such a demand towards Danish citizens. If such a demand is made, we would best meet it by all wearing the Star of David." (Wikipedia)
Was the good Danish King in the face of Nazi oppression of the Jew speaking a prescient message to this generation? This interpretation of the Star of David’s possible prophetic message, I can absolutely assure you, will irritate both Jewish and Christian communities; however, again, its math and geometry is so staggering, that to deny Israel and the Church’s “divine witness and testimony”—especially at the close of this age and prior to the literal Messianic Kingdom to be manifested upon the Earth—denies both the literal interpretation of the Scripture as well as the math and geometry which substantiates the same via mathematical and geometric absolutes.
The New Heavens and the New Earth – Doug Hamp
What disturbs many a Bible-believing Christian is the prospect that they just might find themselves inheriting the Earth after all! How’s that? If the teachings of Doug Hamp are followed through to their logical theological, specifically eschatological, conclusions . . . then the “New Heavens and the New Earth” will commence immediately “after the tribulation of those days” (Matthew 28:29-31) wherein Peter’s statement of a New Heaven and New Earth would commence immediately following the “Day of the Lord” which is in and of itself speaking of the Second Coming of Christ in that the language so used indicates as much; to wit: “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night” (II Peter 3:10; cf. Matthew 24:35, 43-44; Rev. 16:15-16).
However, Peter goes on to say that this Day of the Lord demands that “in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat, both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up” (II Peter 3:10). Peter’s statements are quite impossible to parse—i.e., the coming Millennium demands a New Heaven and New Earth—for Peter continues:
“Looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to the promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells” (II Peter 3:12-13: Isaiah 65:17; 66:22; Rev. 21:1).
Hamp argues that the tumultuous geological dislocations wrought by the Wrath of the Lamb upon the Earth demands an immediate healing of the planet for these cataclysmic, as well as astronomic occurrences wherein the "heavens shall roll up as a scroll" (Isaiah 34:4; Rev. 6:14)--let alone "every mountain and island was moved out of its place"--let alone "every island fled away, and the mountains were not found" (Revelation 6:14; 16:20) at precisely the time known as "The fierceness of His wrath" (Rev. 16:19), simply demands a divine intervention of the first order. No wonder Malachi proclaims that the Sun of Righteousness shall appear with "HEALING IN HIS WINGS!"
What’s at stake here is not a problem from the “Hebrew perspective” because the Hebrew Scriptures mandate that the Earth shall be renewed on that day (Zechariah 14); commensurate with Peter’s words that the New Earth bespeaks of “renewal” as in a “makeover” not as a complete new “replacement” with the absolute passing away of an old earth and the creating of a completely New Earth.
Secondly, where does this leave the Church which allegedly and in reality has returned with Messiah to the Earth (Revelation 19:14) as the “armies of heaven?” When is this fulfilled: “Come, I will show you the Woman, the Lamb’s Bride . . . and he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God” (Revelation 21:9-10)?
To where does she DESCEND? The notion, according to Hamp, of the New Jerusalem caught in “suspended animation” hovering above the Earth during the Millennium for 1,000 literal years, is fraught with theological contradictions. For one, if she is the immediate Bride of Messiah, would not her Groom, her Husband be with her throughout the Millennium—notwithstanding, the Dispensationalists have the King, the Son of David, enthroned upon His Earthly throne throughout the Millennium and upon the Earth (Zechariah 14, Ezekiel 40-48). So, is He in two places at the same time? Naturally, all things are possible with God; however, isn’t it a bit “theologically” ridiculous to assert that the Church as the Bride of Christ is suspended in the heavens during this time; while the “Wife of Jehovah” is upon the Earth with Israel? Also, think about it: Is she, the Bride of Christ, the "lady in waiting" until after the Millennium? The contradictions are theologically glaring.
Nonsense! The veil between heaven and earth is broken, according to Hamp, once and for all—these two dimensions are forever shattered. The New Heaven and the New Earth have an immediate commencement; notwithstanding at the terminus of the New Heaven and New Earth (the end of the literal 1,000 year Millennium) there is a final rebellion of Satan who is loosed for a short time (Revelation 20:7-10). His rebellion does not obfuscate the New Heaven and New Earth. The time frame wherein “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth and the first heaven and the first earth had passed away” (Rev. 21:1) is thematic in nature, not chronological, as Hamp asserts. In other words, this New Heaven and New Earth occurred in time past (immediately following the return of Messiah to the Earth). Israel’s Son of David reigns in the New Jerusalem, in the Holy District. In this sense Israel and the Church are co-regents with Messiah. The “dimensional” barrier between Heaven and Earth is torn asunder. The New Heaven and New Earth demands that Israel and the Church share in their ultimate expression as the Bride of Messiah. God is not a polygamist nor a bigamist on behalf of the Son of His Love–there is but one Bride of Messiah—there is but One Lord, One King: “And the LORD shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be—'The LORD is one,' and His name one” (Zechariah 14:9).
Can we comprehend this “dimensional marvel” caught as we all are within this three-dimensional confinement? Not by using the “natural mind”—for these things must be “spiritually discerned” . . .
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God,
For they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them,
Because they are spiritually discerned”
I Corinthians 2:14
A Final Word - Bringing Together Ezekiel's Holy District and John's New Jerusalem
Israel will have to look at this interpretation either as a whimsical harebrain attempt to diffuse the impact of Zionism or embrace it as a “divine gesture” unbeknown to them until now, thereby bringing with it divine promise and Messianic intrusion upon the world AND the Church. Contrariwise, one could simply vilify the entire interpretation as the sum and substance of a satanic plot to subvert the Zionist cause; or contrariwise, to expand the cause of Zionism!
To embrace this elucidation as a prophetic fulfillment disclosed at the end of the age whereby the Church and Israel, as the “heavenly and earthly” reflections of the One City are being brought together at the “end of time” to attest to the wisdom and power of a covenant-keeping God Who is bringing forth His “witnesses” in the Last Days (the TWO OLIVE TREES, Israel and the TWO LAMPSTANDS, the Church (Rev. 11), as the Holy City Jerusalem, to testify and witness against that Great City, Babylon, would be a horrendous “concession” or “admission” on the part of both Israel and the Church.
Face it, this is a bit over the top, isn’t it? Listen, the theological-eschatological ramifications of such a prospect defies the natural mind. Either I’m a heretic or a fool—or a little of both—or what I suggest deserves, yes, demands, an agonizing reappraisal by Bible-believing Christians to reassess the notion that there is a “mutual destiny” of the Church and Israel brought together at the close of this age, in this generation, at this moment in time and space.
Likewise, and perhaps more of a “prophetic conundrum” and even “embarrassment” to the Jew and to the State of Israel, is to discover that their very Star of David which identifies Zionism and ipso facto the State of Israel and the very essence of the Jew is somehow inextricably bound together with the Church’s destiny whereby the Islamic inclusion of them (i.e., the Church and Israel) as THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK is in fact emblazoned on their National Flag!
Its geometry and math appear abundantly designed in BINDING Israel and the Church together as the New Jerusalem—with, as I have pointed out in my text (Signs in the Heavens and On The Earth…Man’s Days Are Numbered), the “above” New Jerusalem is, on that future day, “dimensionally aligned” with Ezekiel’s “below” expression of the Holy District (Ezekiel 40-48). The math, for example, of Ezekiel's Holy District which is described immediately after the "Supper of the Great God" as well as the "Gog-Magog War" (which sounds very much like the "Finald Conflict") gives the edge of the "Sanctuary" as "500 Rods" (i.e., 12.6 ft. X 500 Rods = 6,300 ft.) + the "4500 cubits" of the Holy City or 9, 450 ft. will equal (6,300 ft. + 9,450 ft. = 15,750 ft. divided by 2.1 ft. (HSC) will equal to 7,500 HSC. Four numeric considerations stand out:
(1) The edge of the Sanctuary in Ezekiel is 6,300 ft. which is a fractal of the 630 ft. found in the length of Noah's Ark of 300 cubits X 2.1 ft. are equal to 630 ft. (likewise, in inches the 630 ft. or the 6,300 ft. X 12 inches is equal to either 7,560 inches of 75,600 inches both of which are fractals of the base edge of the Great Pyramid of Giza's 756 ft.
(2) The 9,450 ft. of Ezekiel's Holy City is a fractal of the "mean" distance between the Earth and the Sun (i.e., being 94,500,000 miles; whereas the New Jerusalem 12-edged perimeter reflects 7,920,000 ft. (one edge) X 12 is equal to 95,040,000 ft. which is a fractal of the distance between the Earth and the Sun at apogee (its furthest orbit). The difference between the distances is: 94,500,000 less 95,040,000 is equal to 540,000 or "54"--a number set we have found throughout these measurements connoting Plato's Optimal Number of Societal Harmony or 5040/2 is equal to 2520 (or the fractal of the HSC).
(3) The 7,500 HSC (comprising the combined edge of the Sanctuary and the Holy City of Ezekiel comports with the "75 days" found in Daniel 12:11-12 wherein there are 30 days unto the 1290th Day of Desolation or 30 days beyond the terminus of Daniel 70th Week (i.e., 2520 days or 7 years or 7 days and 1260 days for half the week + 30 days is equal to 1290 days and then 45 days beyond this 1290 days would be the statement: Blessed is he who waits and comes to the 1335th day or 45 days beyond the 1290th day. These are the "mysterious" 75 days beyond Daniel's 70th Week. Thewse days signal the coming of the Sun of Righteousness, Messiah to the Earth. Furthermore, if we were to add BOTH the combined edges of the Sanctuary and the Holy City (7,500 HSC X 2.1 ft. equal to 15,750 ft. or "1575") to the base edge of the New Jerusalem (7,920,000 ft. or "7920") we would have a most interesting sum of 1575 + 7920 = 9495 wherein the first two digits of Ezekiel's combined edges of the Sanctuary and the Holy City are seen (i.e., "94") and that of the entire twelve edges of the New Jerusalem are seen as "95" (Yes, I know this is a bit out there . . . but it is most interesting.).
(4) The entire Holy District of Ezekiel is 100,000 HSC in its perimeter (Ezekiel 40 through 48) enclosing three major sections, including the Sanctuary, the portion for the Levites and the Holy City with adjoining sectins for urban homesteading. These 100,000 HSC are equal to 2,520,000 inches (which expresses the fractal of the very HSC itself at 25.20 inches). The base perimeter of the New Jerusalem as seen by John, the Beloved, is 7,920,000 ft. (which equals 12,000 furlongs) X 4 is equal to 31,680,000 ft. X 12 inches is equal to 380,160,000 inches (four-square perimeter). Again, by the elimination of the zero in after the first for digits we have 2520 + 3816 equal to "6336" which we have discuss is representative of the "Lamb upon the Throne" wherein the "Suffering Servant" gave His all for the Holy City, New Jerusalem, the Bride of Messiah (6...33...6 . . . wherein "33" is the age of Messiah at the terminus of His earthly ministry and that He was crucified between two men, two thieves represented by the number "6"). Thus, the two perimeters resoundingly echo throughout eternity His quest to "tabernacle among them" and to be in eternal relationship with His One Bride!
The imagery of this eschatology is revolutionary and sets in motion a whole series of heretofore improbabilities.
Careful, before you decry Israel’s unbelief and sordid injustices upon hapless Palestinians (who, incidentally, are apparently well armed given abundant assistance from fellow Islamicists); take a gander at the growing apostasy insinuating itself in virtually all branches of Christendom—particularly, the “Submergent Church Movement” within evangelicalism.
Regardless, the vision of the New Jerusalem awakens within the soul a descending celestial reality ready to break the veil between heaven and earth to acclaim her terrestrial manifestation.
Forgive the repetition, however, this imagery is derived from the New Jerusalem bearing the names of the 12 Tribes of Israel for her gates and the names of the 12 Apostles of the Lamb upon her foundations. Both are joined in holy matrimony as the Bride of Messiah for all eternity. The Church is NOT the 12 Tribes of Israel. She, as the 12 Apostles of the Lamb, is as distinct as the 12 Tribes of Israel. But the two distinctions are both the WOMAN, THE LAMB’S BRIDE! That is the divine order. The Star of David, along with the above geometric amplifications set within the Great Pyramid of Giza, expand that theme.
Am I saying that the rebirth of the State of Israel and the arch-symbol of Zionism, the Star of David, is a prophetic statement of the first order involving the New Jerusalem integrating Israel and the Church as the ultimate Bride of Messiah? That is precisely what I am suggesting and in so saying I shall be either defamed for such an “absurd outburst”—everything from eisogesis of the Scripture to the ramblings of an insane fool; or to a wholly deceived and deceiving heretic—or greeted as an expositor of exquisite insight akin to “The just shall live by faith.”
May God judge the meaning of these things for the good of His people. I believe the true Church in these last days shall find themselves inextricably linked in this great prophetic proposition with the fulfillment of Israel’s materiality at the helm of Messianic hope . . . therefore, do not think it strange that the Almighty would choose a direct descendent of Martin Luther who excoriated the Jews to come up with such a contradiction to Luther’s indictment against the Jews! It’s just like God to outwit history and declare His Great Name in such a way!
Indeed, I know that I shall get flack from both Jew and Christian on such an interpretation—BUT THE MATH DOESN’T LIE! Now, its integration with the measurements of the Great Pyramid of Giza substantiates its declarations all the more. This adds a new dimension and understanding regarding the “Sun of Righteousness” Who shall arise on the Great Day of God (Malachi 4:1-2), as well as these Scriptures – from Peter (the Church); from Isaiah (Israel); and from the Gentiles themselves (Balaam); and finally, from the Sun of Righteousness:
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed,
Which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place,
Until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts”
(II Peter 1:19)
“Arise, shine; for your light has come!
And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the LORD will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.”
“I see Him, but not now;
I behold Him, but not near;
A Star shall come out of Jacob;
A Scepter shall rise out of Israel”
(Balaam’s Fourth Prophecy – Numbers 24:17)
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches.
I am the Root and Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
