Phi and Pi Ratios in the Jerusalem Temple and the Body of Christ

The Human body was clearly created by our Heavenly Father, as not only the apex of physical earthly life, but also as a powerful illustration of the Jerusalem Temple and the Spiritual body of Christ, the Church. An example of this is found in John 2, where:

John 2:19

Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

When Jesus says “in three days I will raise it up” he was referring to being raised from the dead by God the Father [Gal. 1:1], along with many other references that God raised him from the dead; [Acts 3:15, 4:10, 5:30, 13:30, Rom. 10:9-10]. Here
Jesus used the word “Temple” figuratively by revelation to represent his physical body, which is readily seen in the immediate context of verse 21, where it plainly says that Jesus “spake of the temple of his body.” As the embodiment of the true temple, Jesus represented the body of the faithful in Israel, while speaking these words in the courts of the Stone Temple of Jerusalem. Since Jesus was speaking to the religious leaders of Israel, and with their subsequent rejection of Jesus as the Christ, this Stone temple was razed to the ground in 70 AD. Even though the Stone Temple of Jerusalem was only a transitory model of Christ, there is much we can learn from how the Temple modeled the man Jesus Christ. We should also be aware that in Jesus‘ statement here in the Temple, his remarks were not limited to reflecting the faithful bride of Israel, but in light of God’s foreknowledge this statement also has major applications for the Great Mystery and the Spiritual body of Christ, the consummate and perfect man, and Savior of all humanity, showing that this was beyond Jesus’ knowledge at the time he made this statement. This also carries specific implications for the unity of the Jews and Gentiles in the body of Christ [Eph. 2:11-22] that is summarized in Christ as the Cheif Corner-stone, and Capstone of the Great PyramidI Corinthians 12 is one of the most enlightening sections of Scripture, when it comes to understanding the Church and spiritual body of Christ. 1

I Cor. 12:12-27 Amplified Bible

12 For just as the body is one and yet has many parts, and all the parts, though many, form [only] one body, so [b]it is with Christ. 13 For by one [Holy] Spirit we were all baptized into one body, [spiritually transformed—united together] whether Jews or Greeks (Gentiles), slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one [Holy] Spirit [since the same Holy Spirit fills each life].

14 For the [human] body does not consist of one part, but of many [limbs and organs]. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” is it not on the contrary still a part of the body16 If the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” is it not on the contrary still a part of the body17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole [body] were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But now [as things really are], God has placed and arranged the parts in the body, each one of them, just as He willed and saw fit [with the best balance of function]. 19 If they all were a single organ, where would [the rest of] the body be? 20 But now [as things really are] there are many parts [different limbs and organs], but a single body21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 But quite the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are [absolutely] necessary; 23 and as for those parts of the body which we consider less honorable, these we treat with greater honor; and our less presentable parts are treated with greater modesty, 24 while our more presentable parts do not require it. But God has combined the [whole] body, giving greater honor to that part which lacks it, 25 so that there would be no division or discord in the body [that is, lack of adaptation of the parts to each other], but that the parts may have the same concern for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the parts share the suffering; if one member is honored, all rejoice with it.

27 Now you [collectively] are Christ’s body, and individually [you are] members of it [each with his own special purpose and function].

If God has truly placed each of the members of the body as it has pleased Him, we should be paying attention not only to how the members of the physical body work as a unit, but also how the nine manifestations are each essential, and incomplete without the other manifestations. As we are each individual members of the Spiritual body, being born again as new creations in Christ, each with unique importance in the body, God has tempered the body together forming more than what each believer was on their own, since the church body in Christ is much more than just the sum of its parts. As each member ministers in the body of Christ, the spiritual body of the church needs all the gift ministries operating in the body, same as the manifestations. But what about the specific members of the physical body that are cited in pairs above? Could there be added meaning here that may have been overlooked? When we consider how the Creator structured the human body based on the Phi Ratio, perhaps there is more to be learned that may not have been previously considered.

The human body is based on Phi and 5.

The human body illustrates the Golden Section or Divine Proportion. The colored lines below depict the various golden ratio building blocks upon which the human body was built as seen in both diagrams, of the Vitruvian Man below, and human male below:

Successive Golden Sections of a Line, based on phi, the golden ratio

"The Golden Ruler" a Golden Ratio Measuring Stick based on phi by Gary B. Meisner

Human body showing the Divine proportion, phi or golden ratio throughout its dimensionsThe Divine Proportion in the Body

  • The white line is the body’s height.
  • The blue line, a golden section of the white line, defines the distance from the head to the finger tips.
  • The yellow line, a golden section of the blue line, defines the distance from the head to the navel and the elbows, also marked in the Vitruvian Man.
  • The green line, a golden section of the yellow line, defines the distance from the head to the pectorals and inside top of the arms, the width of the shoulders, the length of the forearm and the shin bone.
  • The magenta line, a golden section of the green line, defines the distance from the head to the base of the skull and the width of the abdomen. The sectioned portions of the magenta line determine the position of the nose and the hairline.

Although not shown, the golden section of the magenta line (also the short section of the green line) defines the width of the head and half the width of the chest and the hips. Below are some added phi relationships seen in the human body;

*The length of the human face is equal to the length of the human hand.
*The circumference of the calf muscle is equal to the circumference of the neck.
*The distance from the centre of the sternum to the elbow is exactly half the distance as from the center of the sternum to the FINGERTIPS, also marked in the Vitruvian Man.
*The length of the nose is exactly 1/3 the length of the face. The distance from the tip of the nose to the chin is equal to the length of the nose. The distance from the top of the nose to the hairline is equal to the length of the nose, following the golden ratio.


The Human Body is based on patterns of 5, which is also the basis for Phi.

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, Roman architect (c. 25 B.C.), who formulated the Vitruvian Man seen below, remarked on the similarity between the human body and a perfect building: “Nature has designed the human body so that its members are duly proportioned to the frame as a whole.” He inscribed the human body into a circle and a square, the two figures considered images of perfection. As this image is seen to embody the principles of the ideal man as expressed in sacred architecture for example in the Jerusalem Temple, we can observe how the circle, square and Pyramid within the axes of the square depict the Christ as the perfect human representation [Plate 2. Vitruvian Man] of key Attributes of Almighty God. As we can see from the evidence presented here, the proportions in the structure of the human body follow the Golden Ratio. Below we have two versions of Vitruvian Man, the first in Plate 1, depicting the 17 various examples of Phi ratios in the human body numbered in the graphic. The Temple of the spiritual body of Christ is truly the perfect building because it is God’s building, (Oikodome) [I Cor. 3:9-11] whose foundation is Christ.

Plate 1. Vitruvian Man

This display shows the Intelligent Design of the human body by the Hand of the Almighty Creator in His Omniscient Wisdom. All these aspects of the Phi Ratio in the design of the human body work together to make the sum greater than its parts, so that we can see why God made the human body the pinnacle of Creation. God made the human body to house human life, in body, soul and spirit, first in Adam and Eve, and ultimately the only begotten Son of God-Jesus Christ. This brings us to the design of the genetic code of human Life, DNA, which is the Creator’s signature as the Life-Giver [John 5:6, 17:3] as seen in the Four Kingdoms of Life on Earth.

DNA [the following research is found on Wikipedia and is suggested for further study]

Each cycle of the DNA molecule measures 34 angstoms long by 21 angstroms wide. 34 and 21 are Fibonacci numbers. The ratio of 34/21 is a more accurate approximation of phi, since it is further into the Fibonacci series than the previous examples of 3 and 5Jean-claude Perez suggested there was a strong link between DNA and golden ratio in 1991,[1] then later in 1997 in his book l’ADN décrypté[2]. His work shows that relative proportions of nucleotides within coding DNA sequences like genes or RNA strings are governed by specific Fibonacci and Lucas number sets. This discovery was validated particularly on all known HIV and SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus) retroviruses whole genomes with Professor Luc Montagnier (the discoverer of HIV virus) which called the discovery a “DNA supracode” [3]. 2

Other interesting relationships of golden section in the design of the human body include:

  • 5 appendages to the torso, in the arms, leg and head.
  • 5 appendages on each of these, in the fingers and toes.
  • 5 openings on the face.
  • 5 sense organs for sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

The golden section in turn, is also based on 5, as the number phi, or 1.6180339…, is computed based on 5, as follows:

5 ^ .5 * .5 + .5 = Phi

In this mathematical construction “5 ^ .5” means “5 raised to the 1/2 power,” which is the square root of 5, which is then multiplied by .5 and to which .5 is then added.

Each section of your index finger, from the tip to the base of the wrist, is larger than the preceding one by about the Fibonacci ratio of 1.618, also fitting the Fibonacci numbers 2, 3, 5 and 8.

By this scale, your fingernail is 1 unit in length.

Curiously enough, you also have 2 hands, each with 5 digits, and your 8 fingers are each comprised of 3 sections.  All Fibonacci numbers!

Here are some other ways of expressing the same basic relationship in its connection to the golden ratio and the related squares and rectangles of the golden spiral: 3

finger-fibonacci-golden-ratio-proportions

finger-bone-section-golden-spiral

The ratio of the forearm to hand is Phi

Your hand is formed on a golden section relation to your arm, as the ratio of your forearm to your hand is also 1.618, the Divine Proportion, and represents the tactile sense; of touch. Spiritually, our hands and feet embody the human actions in which we partake, reflected in the golden section relations of the body parts or members of which the human body consists.

arm-showing-golden-proportions

Even your feet show phi

The foot has several proportions based on phi lines, including:

  1. The middle of the arch of the foot
  2. The widest part of the foot
  3. The base of the toe line and big toe
  4. The top of the toe line and base of the “index” toe

Additionally, it can be concluded that the width of the foot is in direct proportion to the width of the human torso.
In the male human body;
*The distance from the human coxyn to the top of the shoulders. is 3 times the length of the foot ( as from the heal
to the top of the ball of the foot )
*The width of the person’s shoulders. 4.7 times the with of the ball of the foot.
*The width of a persons hips is 4.7 times the width of the heal.

Not every individual has body dimensions in exact phi ratios, but averages across populations tend towards phi and phi proportions are perceived as being the most natural or beautiful. 4

Since the eye and the ear are mentioned in comparison in [I Cor. 12:16-17] let’s see what else God’s Word says about the eye.

Matt. 6:19-23
19 
“Do not store up for yourselves
 [material] treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 
20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in and steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart [your wishes, your desires; that on which your life centers] will be also. 22 “The eye is the lamp of the body; so if your eye is clear [spiritually perceptive], your whole body will be full of light [benefiting from God’s precepts]. 23 But if your eye is bad [spiritually blind], your whole body will be full of darkness [devoid of God’s precepts]. So if the [very] light inside you [your inner self, your heart, your conscience] is darkness, how great and dense is that darkness! [Darkness 3x]

In the graphic below we find not only the Golden Ratio pattern underlying the symmetry of the elements of the human face, a
noticeable feature here is how the human eye is the incept point of this pattern, and as we will see presently, how the spiral begins within in the eye and covers all the senses evident in the 7 cavities in the head.

Phi in the Eye is seen in the ratio between the Cornea and the white portion [sclera] of the eye.

The eye allows us to see the light of God which impacts our entire body both physically and spiritually. The Graphic below depicts also how the human eye embodies the geometry of the Vesica Piscis, seen previously in the structure of the Northern Astronomical Pole, which reflects the pattern of all Creation as spoken into existence by the Almighty God; [Gen. 1:3]. The Creator’s image of what He wanted to speak into existence, was certainly clear and detailed from the macro to the micro or even quantum level of reality, which is why Creation is so beautiful and stunning from the biggest, to the smallest detail… The human eye was designed to visually observe the light of God, and the ear to hear, listen and live by the associated Words of God. Since the unity of the Sonic Scale is a lower manifestation of the electro-magnetic scale, we can witness the scientific realities in Creation supporting this foundational truth.

Matt. 6:19-23, Lk. 11:34

Bishop K.C. Pillai provided an alternative version of these verses, which follows;

Let not your thoughts be centered in material things where fears and worries breed defeat and frustration, and where doubts  break through and steal your thoughts; But let your thoughts be centered in the Spirit, where neither fear nor worry breeds defeat and frustration, and where doubts do not break through and steal your thoughts. For where your thoughts are, there will be your heart also.” 5

The “Treasures” Christ was referring to in Matt. 6 were not physical money, instead he was talking about our spiritual thought life. The moth and rust refer to fear and worry which corrode and destroy our positive spiritual thoughts of edification. As Romans, tells us the carnal mind, whose thought life is centered on a materialistic reality, will always suffer the plagues of defeat and despair because the temporal and material world is illusory. But with a God-centered thought life, we are depending on the immutable realities of God, He is ever-present with His unchanging promises that carry us through any situation that arises on the path of life. In this way, we can truly live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. As we stay our minds on God, He rewards us with His perfect Peace and Joy!

17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole [body] were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?

Rom. 10:17, Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. [Gal. 3:2-5]

In the image of the man’s head below, notice how the Fibonacci spiral that rules the dimensions of the squares and rectangles that are spawned by this perfect spiral, encapsulate the exact human sensual organs in the same order they are mentioned in I Cor. 12. The center of the spiral and the first square and rectangle starts within the dimensions of the eye, enlightening the entire body. In the first turn of the phi spiral, the eye is enclosed in the second square and rectangle. This frames the ear as the spiral makes a 2nd turn, generating the third rectangle. By the time it makes its 3rd turn it encloses the ear, just under the eyebrow, and top of the Nose. As this spiral continues it forms the fourth rectangle which encloses the other half of the head with  the nose and second ear and, as the next rectangle is formed, the lower portion of the face below the nose is enclosed, including the mouth-the organ of taste and speech. The symmetry of how the phi ratio forms the sensual components of the head and face is inescapably beautiful! Obviously, this structure works very well with all the members human physical body, but it does not stop there. As these human senses of the physical body are enclosed within the progressive Fibonacci spirals, we can see how the revelation manifestations are referenced as the eyes and ears of the church embodied in the word of knowledge and word of wisdom, and the nose also fits in this category with discerning of spirits, where we can detect and rebuke those foul spirits as Jesus did, [Mark 9:25-29]. With the mouth as the organ of taste and speech, we can see how this applies to each believer as a member of the spiritual body, having the ministry of reconciliation should do the work of an evangelistspeaking the truth in love, [Eph. 4:15]. We also find with the gift ministries [Eph. 4:11] which all function as teachers and messengers of God’s Word, all should endeavor to speak God’s Word with eloquence and bold believing.

The Nine Manifestations of the spirit from [I Cor. 12:7-11] have been categorized into 3 groups of three, the Worship Manifestations [Speaking in Tongues, Interpretation of Tongues and Prophecy], all emanating from the Mouth. Secondly, the Revelation Manifestations [Word of Knowledge, Word of Wisdom and Discerning of Spirits] called the spiritual eyes and ears of the Church. Thirdly, the Impartation Manifestations [The Manifestation of Believing, Miracles, and Gifts of Healing] as the members are truly God’s hands and feet, as the holy spirit motivates our actions in the human/spiritual body of Christ.

As each member of the body of Christ individually believes to manifest each category of these spiritual manifestations, the special purpose and function of the believer becomes apparent, as they involve themselves in the spiritual ministry of the Church. As a result, the collective body of Christ will function more perfectly as God designed and assembled it in Christ, locally, by region, and globally. Here the individual believer is fully equipped physically and spiritually and is completely outfitted for success, by the Heavenly Father in Christ, to accomplish what God has called us to do. As each member shares fully in the new birth, we are made a New Creation in Christ, to share in the full abundance of the Spiritual Church, of the Body of Christ.

One of the prayers in the Book of Ephesians elaborates on the revelation manifestations as the eyes and ears of the Church, and some of the benefits God provides to the enlightened.

Eph. 1:17-19

17 [I always pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight] into the true knowledge of Him [for we know the Father through the Son]. 18 And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the [f]hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the [g]saints (God’s people), 19 and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe.

These verses emphasize what the true knowledge of God in the Apostle Paul’s prayer is, that our eyes should be enlightened with;
1. The Hope of our calling.
2. The riches of His Glorious inheritance in His Saints.
3. The surpassing greatness of His power in us who believe.

This power was evident and manifest when;

a. God Raised Christ from the dead.
b. And Seated him at His own Right Hand in heaven.
c. And put all things under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the Church of his body, including the unlimited power hidden in the Great Mystery.

Plate 2. Vitruvian Man

Our brief tour through the human body represented in the Hebrew Temple reveals deeper truths as access to the holiest of all with the Ark of the Covenant, was available only once a year on the Day of Atonement, by the High Priest. Hebrews tells us Christ is this High Priest after the order of Melchisedek, with an everlasting Priesthood and final perfect sacrifice for all mankind. In some ancient sacred Geometry traditions, the relation of the Diameter to the Circumference, embodied in the pi ratio, symbolized the Names of GodElohim and Jehovah. With Elohim, the Creator representing the Circumference, of the curved line forming a circle as the totality of His Creation, and in Jehovah, the straight line Diameter, as God relates to the works of His Hands. Thus the pi ratio embodies the geometrical expressions of the Names of the Almighty. We find the basic elements of the concept of “squaring the circle” in the Circle’s diameter inscribed in the circumference of a surrounding Sphere inside a Cube. In I Kings 7:30, the circular Brasen Sea is contained within a square base. This principle survived through the centuries in the domed sacred architecture of many temples and churches, where the circular dome is surrounded by a square building. We should also note that the Holy of the holies, with the Ark of the Covenant, was a perfect cube, withindouble-square ground-plan of the Hebrew Tabernacle.

A Key in grasping the 40+ Attributes of God as Rev. Jon Nessle and I have cataloged them, as they relate to the special traits of God referred to as Essences, is summarized in the Chart below. When God’s Word refers to a certain Trait by saying God IS ___, these traits are His very essence. These four traits all mentioned in the Gospel of John; Light, Spirit and Love, are found in  their 3 main categories of God’s Attributes, with the fourth, the Word of God explaining them all. 6

Elohim El/Elah Jehovah
Infinitude Holiness Monarchy
Light Spirit Love
                           The Word of God

As the Circle and Square represent Elohim and Jehovah in the Plate 2. graphic of Vitruvian Man, the Square with the axes represents the Great Pyramid and how Christ embodies this version of the of sacred architecture as seen in the many references to him as the Cheif Cornerstone, and the missing Pyramid Capstone, [Job 38:16, Ps.118:22, Isa. 28:16, Zech. 4:7, Matt. 21:42, Mk.12:10, Lk. 20:17, Acts 4:11, Eph. 2:20, I Pet. 2:6-7]. The gift ministries of the spiritual body of the Church in Christ are the foundation of this body, as they manifest Christ in them.

Ephesians 2:20 (KJV)

20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophetsJesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone;

We should note how both sets of hands and feet of the Vitruvian Man are touching the boundaries, one of the circle and the  other of the Square, representing how Christ embodies the Godly Attributes of both Elohim and Jehovah. One of the best examples of how Jesus embodies some of the Jehovah titles is found in reference to 7 redemptive Names of God, in unity with the 7 aspects of the Shepherd in the 23rd Psalm, in the Chart below as more evidence of this Godly septenary order.

The importance of relating pi to septenary units is obvious in a Biblical light when we consider Elohim’s abundant use of the number 7 in His ordering of Creation, for example in the temporal order of the 7 days in the weekly Sabbath, a week of years, the Jubilee, and the 7 Biblical Administrations. Only from the Creator’s viewpoint in His Word, do these applications of the pi ratio seen in Job make sense. As we find in Job 38:5 with the Biblical usage of the Hebrew word “qav,” God’s exercise of the concept of Pi far exceeds any previous application of it by mankind. Only He could apply the pi ratio to the ecliptic.

This is also true with the spherical dimensions of our planet, a concept which is borne out in much greater detail, in the role of pi in the symbolic and architectural design of the Great Pyramid.

In Psalm 19, The heavens declare the glory of God… Verse 4 says,

“Their line [qav] is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them He hath settabernacle for the sun.”

Image result for Beautiful Images of the Earth

In the 38th chapter of Job, God is discussing the foundations of the Earth. Verse 5 asks: “Who hath laid the measures thereof, if you know? Or who hath stretched the line upon it?” The obvious Biblical answer to these questions is the Creator. The Hebrew word for “line” here is qav, [*H6957]. 7 In light of the usage of “qav” in I Kings 7:23, God’s exercise of Pi as a standard ruler or measure in laying and measuring the spherical dimensions and foundations of our planet, recorded in Job, the oldest book in the Biblical Canon is enlightening. This is especially the case when we consider the context of Job 38, that deals with a series of questions about various elements of Creation, that only God Almighty could be the answer to. It also shows the Diameter of the Circumference, embodied in the pi ratio, symbolizing the Names of God; Elohim the Creator and Jehovah, in relation to His Creation, in light of the 12 tribes of Israel and the circle of the 12 signs of the Mazzaroth.

The Ecliptic Housing the 12 signs of the Mazzaroth

The Hebrew word for “line“- qav, [*H6957] carries the primary meaning of a measuring cord, a ruler, or a standard of measure. We are also familiar with this concept by another term known as a “canon.” Let me ask you, what is the heavenly or celestial line that is a tabernacle, or provides the houses of the sun? The only sensible answer is the ecliptic! This is quite logical when we consider that the Israelites, during their 40-year sojourn in the Sinai wilderness were led by God, seen as a pillar of cloud during the day, and one of fire by night. The pillars dwelt over the Holy of the Holies of their Tabernacle, signifying the Jehovah’s personal presence among His people. When they camped for the evenings, Numbers 2 tells us they camped in the order of the tribes as it matched the order of the course of the sun on the ecliptic, (east, south, west, north). Israel’s twelve tribes, as we are aware by now, also matched up with the twelve signs of the Mazzaroth in their God-ordained significance, before they were corrupted in heathen Astrology and mythology. This tribal order is also found in the 12 jewels of the High Preist’s breastplate, [Ex. 28:15-21]. Thus the celestial gospel originally related the story of the coming redeemer of mankind, which God wrote in the stars before He ever committed it to His Written Word. These are the words of Ps. 19:4 that have gone out through all the earth, unto the end of the world. This application of the Pi ratio (the mathematics of the diameter of a circle to its circumference) by God, in reference to the ecliptic is certainly intriguing not only in light of the Sun’s 360degree path through its 12 houses of the zodiac, as viewed from Earth, but also in how the Sun as the light of the world embodies Christ, in relation to Israel, who rejected him.

Historically, Great Pyramid researchers going back to ancient times have made intriguing observations concerning the dimensions and symbolism of the only ancient wonder of the world still standing. Ancient Scholars from Herodotus to Agatharchides of Cnidus in the 2nd Century BC, usually stressed the mathematical and geometric principles governing the construction and conception of the Pyramid complex on the Giza Plateau, as opposed to their specific measures. Livio Stechini,
a modern scholar analyzing the work of these ancient and modern Pyramid researchers, focused on the meridian triangle of the Great Pyramid, that provided excellent values for both the Pi and Phi ratios, of the four triangular faces of the Great Pyramid. Agatharchides presented dimensions for two meridian sections of the Pyramid based on Pi, with the other two triangular sections based on Phi. 8 Vitruvian Man depicts Jehovah as reaching out to humanity through Jesus His only begotten Son, as the diameter line that connects the centerpoint [Man-creation] to the Creator as the eternal Circle, outside Creation. Thus Christ is witnessed as the mediator between God and Man [I Tim. 2:5].

As Agatharchides presented dimensions for the two meridian sections of the Pyramid based on Pi, with the other two triangular sections based on Phi, we find a representation of the four-D ministry of Christ aligned with the 4 triangular faces of the Pyramid. The two triangular faces on the Pyramid’s east-west axis are calculated with pi values, representing the aspects of Christ as King in the Gospel of Matthew, and the Son of God in the Gospel of John. These embody perfected aspects of Christ’s ministry since he is now seated at the right hand of the Heavenly Father as the enthroned King and only begotten resurrected Son of God. The Pyramid’s faces on the north-south axis hold values of phi, representing growth aspects of the kingdoms of Life on Earth, as seen in Christ as Head of the Church and the Son of Man in the Gospel of Luke, and the Servant in the Gospel of Mark. As the ultimate example of a ServantChrist humiliated himself [Phil. 2:1-8] so that God could exalt him forever at His own right hand. These archetypal lessons of spiritual growth embodied in Christ’s example to all humanity, as the spiritual growth that all members of the body of Christ in his Church, need to follow. As the Son of Man, Jesus is the Paragon of humanity, the exemplar that we all must emulate to make our calling and election sure. The link to Biblical Astronomy is found in Al Zemach–Spica the brightest star in Virgo that embodies the four-fold ministry
of Christ as the King, Son of Man, Servant, and Son of God. The Four Gospels reflect these four ministries of Christ, seen in the Hebrew word “tzemach”-or the “branch.” This Hebrew word is used 12 times in the OT, but these four usages [Isa. 4:2, Jer. 23:5, Zech. 3:8, 6:12] depict the four-fold Ministry of the MessiahJehovah’s Branch, and offspring.

The Ark of the Covenant

Ark of the Covenant

The septenary relation to pi uncovers the link between the pi and phi ratios, through the popular Fibonacci Series. This is interesting when we consider that the dimensions of Ark of the Covenant conform to the phi standard, in the holiest of all. Since the lid or “mercy seat” of the Ark represents the Creator’s Throne, we not only find the geometric application of the Names of God: Jehovah/Elohim in practice by the Nation of Israel, as they worship the Almighty according to the tenets of Scripture, but the measures of the Ark are based on a 1×2 rectangle [Ex. 25:10] that perfectly conforms the phi ratio as seen also in the Coffer of the Kings Chamber in the Great Pyramid. This phi and pi link makes it possible to obtain pi without the need for measuring! As Livio Stechini tells us: “It is possible to use the Fibonacci Series to obtain an accurate relation for the diameter of the circle to its circumference, without recourse to pi. In the Fibonacci series of 21, 34, 55, if 21 is taken as the diameter of a circle, its circumference will be 55 x 6/5 = 66, accurate to the a 1000th part, giving the Great Pyramid value of pi as 22/7 = 3.142857. Higher numbers in this Fibonacci series give increasingly accurate values in whole numbers, accurate to one ten-thousandth part. Prolonging the series to 80, 144, 233, 377, 610… a diameter of 144 (4 x 576) gives a circumference of 377 x 6/5 or a pi value of 3.1415. A diameter of 233= a circumference of 610 x 6/5 or a pi value of 3.1416…”10

Since Pi [3.14159…] is central to the geometry of the circle, and the Great Pyramid, it is worth pointing out the relationship between pi and phi, because phi is also used to obtain the value of circular functions, with one example seen clearly in the pentagon or pentagram inscribed in a circle. A beautiful example of this is found first in a comparison of Venus-Earth orbits. These two planets orbit the Sun in a phi ratio, harmony, depicted in a geometric pentagonal pattern, as their mean orbital distances conform to  [1+1/phi2]:1.11

This depicts how the sacred geometry of “Squaring the Circle” as seen in the architecture of the Great Pyramid, which embodies the dimensions of our planet earth as a 1/43,200 scale model, as the work of the hands of our Almighty Creator.
As we have witnessed how God illustrates the Attributes of His Names via the Pi and Phi Ratios and their related geometry, we can understand some of His eternal purposes related to the redemption of mankind, and His Temporal order structured to bring humanity back to Him.

The Dance of Venus. An accurate scientific drawing of Venus amazing pattern around the Earth Did you know that Venus, our closest planetary neighbour, draws a beautiful fivefold pattern around Earth? She does this every eight years. This extraordinary hi-res image shows Venus path around Earth over 32 years and has been generated by legendary author, researcher and publisher John Martineau. Sacred Geometry:

Flower of 5-petals of Venus’ orbit around the Earth every 8 years,
equal to 13 Venus years, revealing the Fibonacci triple [5:8:13]

Since the phi principle inherent in the Fibonacci Series is the basis of the precepts of geometric growth life throughout the plant and animal kingdoms of life evident in the Creator’s Four Kingdoms of Life, this principle of mathematics as applied to the Church is ever reaching toward the perfected pi aspects of Christ at God’s right Hand. This is evident also in the rise and expansion of the Christian Church in the Book of Acts, as seen in the 8 “symperasma” Great Statements that summarize the spiritual growth as it occurred. As the Creator and ultimate Source of Life, the Almighty has led us on this path of spiritual discovery paved with the principles of geometric and mathematical truth revealed in God’s Word. This is the geometric progression we have just witnessed in our phi journey through the Temple of Israel, and the body of Christ.

God Bless!!

Comments Off on Phi and Pi Ratios in the Jerusalem Temple and the Body of Christ

Solar System Symmetry and the design pattern of the Hebrew Temple

The banner above was developed to illustrate a phi/Fibonacci relationship in our solar system between Jupiter and Saturn, relative to the Earth, reflected in the line below these planets divided according to the phi ratio. This depicts a phi relationship relative to the mean heliocentric orbits of these planets. As the planets are dispersed in their orbital paths throughout the solar system, they reflect the phi ratio. But this is only one of these relationships among many in our solar system. If it was only one or a few, disconnected incidents of phi, it could be written off to coincidence, but as we will see this is clearly not the case.

We also find relationships of the Fibonacci Series and the phi ratio in the mean sidereal and mean synodic planetary cycles, not to mention their periods of revolution and mean orbital speeds, to include inverse velocity relationships, all based on the ubiquitous phi ratio. Again these many Phi relationships on their own, might not be enough evidence to convince us of an Almighty Creator,
as the Power behind this Intelligent Design, but once each of these individual planets are seen to fit together themselves in a phi or logarithmic spiral operating as an exponential constant, organizing the entire order of our solar system, God’s Creation Symmetry becomes much more difficult to deny. This is especially true when we find the beauty of the celestial phi symphony of our solar system as
a smaller reflection, not only of the same phi spiral highlighting the rotational Symmetry of our spiral Galaxy the Milky Way, but is also inherent in other spiral galaxies of the Universe. Please check the following link, which goes into greater detail regarding these truths than I have space for here.
(www.spirasolaris.ca

Plate I. The Milky Way Spiral

spiral galaxy

A musical analogy is most appropo to describe the symmetrical beauty of the phi dance of planets, not haphazardly but by design.  The basic essence of musical Symmetry is
Rhythm consisting of a regular periodic repetition of individual parts, fitting into the constitution of the symmetric whole. The proof of design is in the intelligent ordering
of these individual parts, in concert and ruled by the same phi/ Fibonacci principles governing this spiral system on a larger scale. The design of the Creator’s Symmetry is what is known as “scale-invariant.” Scientists compared “Scale invariant symmetry” to
a “stringed musical instrument that resonates with tuning forks tuned to the same base frequency, or ones that are tuned to entire octaves above or below the base frequency, but not to different frequencies.” No matter the size of the system, it is ruled by the same phi ratio at multiple levels, in a symbiotic and interconnected whole, that points to the only Conductor who is capable of directing this beautiful symphonic Creation, The One and Only Almighty God!

There are numerous examples of individual planets exhibiting the principles of the phi ratio, on their own, one can be found with Saturn and its Ring system. [https://www.goldennumber.net/solar-system/] 1

Plate 2. Saturn with Ring System

The diameter of Saturn is very close to a phi relationship with the diameter of its rings, as illustrated by the green lines. The inner ring division is in a relationship that is very close to phi with the diameter of the rings outside the sphere of the planet, as illustrated by the blue lines. The Cassini division in the rings of Saturn falls at the Golden Section of the width of the lighter outside section of the rings. 2

Taking this a step further, the phi ratio, aligned with the Creator’s Symmetry as He applied His principles of Intelligent Design in Creation, can be organized along the following lines. Music is the harmonious ordering of the temporal world, Geometry is the harmonious ordering of the spatial world, and Astronomy harmoniously orders Space-Time. The chaos that the enemy injected into God’s creation in the 1st Heaven and Earth, God restored first with the light of His own presence, then with His creation of the Sun, Moon and Stars of the firmament, whose purpose is to give light upon the earth. The order of the temporal cycles of the Sun, Moon and Stars provide the standard by which all mankind set his Sundials, Stone circles, atomic clocks, watches, and calendars, while keeping the farmers planting their crops in the proper seasons, [Gen. 8:22]. This represents the unity of space-time that God re-instituted into His Creation, repairing the damage done by the enemy. God had a unified concept of space and time long before Albert Einstein woke up to this truth in the early 20th century. To grasp this in light of the Lord Jesus Christ, and its spiritual elements, let’s look at [Heb. 1:2-3].

Heb 1:2 Hath in1909 these5130 last2078 days2250 spoken2980 unto us2254 by1722 his Son,5207 whom3739 he hath appointed5087 heir2818 of all things,3956 by1223 whom3739 also2532

made the worlds” [G165 aion] or ages of time, thus the seven spiritual administrations in God’s Timeline of History. This verse sits in the “Opening Fanfare” of Hebrews, and echoes throughout the entire book [11:3], even as God’s Spoken Words [rhema] do at the start of each of the seven Spiritual Administrations in His Timeline. Jesus as man’s Coming Redeemer, was and is God’s Eternal Purpose and Plan for the Ages, Jesus is the Agent of God’s master-plan of all spiritual history. Everything in time depended upon what JC would do to fulfill the Word of God. Thus, Jesus was and is the consummation of All Time, and is the reason he could saybefore Abraham was, I Am,” because in the Creator’s Eternal Purpose and Foreknowledge to redeem the Ages, Christ is the central character/Hero, reordering the temporal ages that the enemy had thrown into chaos.3 strong’s notes on G5481

Heb. 1:2by whom [di’ hou; Christ] He [God] made the ages”- the words di or dia’ hou are used to express agency. Dia here takes the genitive case, meaning that there were many agents rather than a sole agent by whom God re-made the ages. Jesus was the primary person by whom God was able to repair the ages that were thrown into ruin as a result of the dragon’s revolt, but it took the collective efforts of all hero’s of faith [Heb. 11] to bring it to pass. In this way, Jesus is seen as the incarnate Word of God that “frames” [G2675katartizocompletes, restores, perfects] the “ages” [G165-aion] in verse 3, thus God’s temporal order was dependent upon the believing actions of Christ as the basis of God’s plan to restore the ages.

to do with the “2nd person of the Trinity.” Jesus Christ embodies the marker or indicator of God’s redemption plan for mankind. Used in [Heb. 11:1] Faith is the substructure, or substance-a foundational Biblical premise, including temporal sensitivity [see Heb. 11:3 below]. Hupostasis is the “title deed” of believing in Heb. 11:1, the indicator that whatever we believe for is ours before we have it. 6

Heb 11:3 Through faith4102 we understand3539 that the3588 worlds165 were framed2675 by the word4487 of God,2316 so that things which are seen991 were not3361 made1096 of1537 things which do appear.5316

worlds” [G165 aion] ages of time were repaired, or set back in order by the individual spoken Words [G4487 rhema] of God. Thus we can trace the Audible Spoken Words of God at the inception
of each Spiritual Administration. Each temporal administration represents a step closer in the progression towards the total reparation of Time that was thrown into chaos by the revolt of Lucifer in the 1st Heaven & Earth. As Rom. 8:19-22 tells us in the Amplified Bible; 7

19 For [even the whole] creation [all nature] waits eagerly for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration and futility, not willingly [because of some intentional fault on its part], but by the will of Him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will also be freed from its bondage to decay [and gain entrance] into the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been moaning together as in the pains of childbirth until now.

The Creator’s temporal order is included in the “whole creation” of Romans 8 above, that is subject to the bondage of decay through the entropy law, which will be vanquished when the children
of God are revealed at the gathering together.

A Biblical Administration is generally defined as “a period of time in God’s historical and spiritual timetable during which God deals with man in a particular way. It is governed by principles or spiritual truths that may be unique unto itself. In rightly dividing the Word of Truth, we must understand that these Biblical Administrations must remain within the bounds or confines in which God has placed them within His Word. The rules of life change in these various time periods, so we must see each administration within its distinct context. When we research ‘to whom’ a particular Scripture is addressed, we must also see which Biblical administration governs the rules.” 8

Since Christ is the end of the Law, we are no longer subject to the dictates of Old Testament Law, but we live by the higher Law of the Love of God, upon which “hang all the law and commandments.” Yet the accuracy of these ordinances of heaven continue to set the standard for truth in the important areas, not only of physical but spiritual calendars and timekeeping that we continue to apply in modern times according to the perpetual Covenant of Day and Night [Jer. 33:20 -22]. This is a trait of a “mandate from heaven,” that its truth can remain applicable beyond the scope of its original Biblical Administration. [Gen. 8:22]

As Jon Nessle has taught us, with a panoramic view of all 7 Biblical Administrations or “ages” we can note the step by step progress being made spiritually as we search out the words spoken by God and His prophets at the opening of each Age.

Ultimately the union of Space-time is rooted in the unity of Sound and Light, first found in the Genesis 1, Phrase: AND GOD SAID… When God Thundered forth His Spoken Word, it was the essence of Divine Truth at the foundation of All Creation, which is found by scientists today, as a series of interconnected energy fields that vibrate coherently and on multiple levels, in the symphony of a universal harmony of matter and energy. If there is a unified field theory to be found, this will be its true Source! It is a vibrantly living ALL Truth that resonates through all levels of Creation, not some stale “information theory.” Information is neutral and devoid of the power the Creator has infused in the Word of His Truth. Science is at a loss to fully account for the coherence of repeated cosmic ratios, along with finely tuned universal Anthropic constants like the Fibonacci/ Phi/Lucas number patterns, or the constant of the Mass of the proton, which God has tuned to His energy fields in Creation to produce harmonic ratios that gave rise to the highly improbable conditions that generated life. Empirical Science will remain at a loss as long as they approach the problem from an evolutionary/materialistic context, or from a position that does not honor or acknowledge the Creator for the Work that only His Hands can accomplish. [Rom. 1:19-23].

As we inspect the order of our Solar System, some obvious questions arise. Why are the periods of Jupiter and Saturn in a 2:5 orbital ratio? Why are the periods of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in a 1:2:3 orbital ratio, and Earth and Venus in an 8:5 orbital ratio and a 13:8 period ratio?

Venus orbits the Sun in 224.695 days while Earth orbits the Sun in 365.242 days, in a ratio of 8/13 (both Fibonacci numbers) or 0.615 (roughly phi.) Thus 5 conjunctions of Earth and Venus occur every 8 orbits of the Earth around the Sun, and every 13 orbits of Venus.

Why are Mars and Jupiter locked into a 1:12 resonance, Saturn and Uranus in a 3:1 resonance, and a 2:3 resonance between Mercury’s rotational and orbital periods? In other words, why does Mercury have an 88-day year and a 59-day rotation period making its day in a 2:3 ratio with its year? When the time period of each planet’s revolution around the sun is compared in round numbers to the one adjacent to it, their fractions are Fibonacci numbers!

Plate 3. Fibonacci and Lucas Ratios and the Outer Planets

Table 4. The Jupiter-Saturn, Jupiter-Uranus Resonances and the Fibonacci/Lucas Series

(www.spirasolaris.ca) 9

Beginning with Neptune and moving inward toward the sun, the ratios are 1/2 (Uranus: 30,688 earth days to Neptune: 60,193 earth days), 1/3 (Saturn: 10,670 to Uranus: 30,688), 2/5 (Jupiter:4,332 to Saturn:10,670), 3/8 (Ceres: 1,681 to Jupiter: 4,332), 5/13 (Mars: 687 to Ceres: 1,681), 8/21 (Venus: 225 to Mars: 687) and 13/34 (Mercury:88 to Venus: 225). These are all Fibonacci numbers in proper sequence, skipping Earth, as if the Designer of this system had foreknowledge that Earth was the vantage point from which this pattern would be observed. The influence of the Fibonacci series in the order of our Solar System, reflects how the orbital distances of the planets approximate the phi ratio.

At times we forget about the asteroids when thinking of the planets in our solar systemCeres, the largest asteroid, is nearly spherical, comprises over one-third the total mass of all the asteroids and is thus the best of these minor planets to represent the asteroid belt.  (Insight on mean orbital distances contributed by Robert Bartlett.)

1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,… But this doesn’t mean Earth is haphazard. It also has an intermediate set of Fibonacci ratios of 8/13 (Earth: 365 to Mars: 687) and 13/21 (Venus: 225 to Earth: 365). There is no way arbitrary haphazard chance that can account for the precision behind this kind of mathematical and geometric order and design. This kind of design demands an Intelligent DESIGNER!

Rom. 1:18-20
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [d]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [e]manifest [f]in them, for God has shown it to them20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and [g]Godhead, so that they are without excuse.

Plate 4. Solar System Periods

Due to the 13:8 ratio of Venus: Earth orbital relationship, every 8 years Venus will be almost in the same place in the sky.  It will have had 5 synodic (conjunction) periods of 583.92 days superior or inferior.  If each cycle of 5 conjunctions takes 8 years to complete, then the following complete cycle must be divisible by 5 and the year count divisible by 8. However, because of the 2.34 day difference every 8 years, the conjunctions “precess” in the reverse direction. As this data shows, the planets depict phi relationships not only in Orbital and Synodic periods, but this also implies a relationship between the Phi ratio, and the Inverse Square Law which governs both gravity and electro-magnetism. This again illustrates the unity of sound and light, because as explained by certain scientists today Gravity is a form of Sound, or Vibrational Frequency Waves, not just audible sound, which like visible light is a narrow range. We are referring to the spectrum of Sonic waves, including ELF’s (Extra Low Frequency Waves) – ULF’s (Ultra Low Frequency Waves) etc.

The Ancients it seems were aware of some of these truths, as seen in the Vesica Piscis representation wherein two over-lapping of circles shown in the ancient Vesica, the circle on the right represents the act of Creation as the Almighty spoke the Universe into being. The results of this ultimate sound wave, are witnessed in the second circle representing all that was created. As the First Cause uttered the first sound, it continues to reverberate through all creation, bouncing back, off of the created objects returning back on itself, exhibiting the order of sound resonance in symphony, with the Creator’s will, Who upholds all creation by His Word. God is represented symbolically as a Circle of Light as seen in His Covenant with Noah [Gen. 9:12-17], the number seven being the perfect standard of God’s Creation. The Circle perfectly depicts Unity, without beginning or end. In the Vesica Piscis image, the circumference of the Second Circle passes through the center of the first, as a projection and outward image of itself, or Elohim manifesting as El.

The entrance of God’s Word always brings light, [Ps. 119:130], so as God spoke to give Light; the Sound of God’s Voice preceded Light. The Oscillatory Frequency principle rings true, since Sound is an Energy active on a lower Scale building towards light. This is an accurate
way to grasp the Biblical principles of God’s Creation from a scientific viewpoint since based on this Oscillatory Frequency, Sound is Energy acting on a lower Scale, building towards light. As visible Light appears on the 49th Octave, it explains its Divine origin and relation. Since the Number 49 is the product of 7 X 7, it stands for each Circle of the spiral being traversed 7 times as this beautiful Light Energy was preceded by Sound with its Seven Musical Notes, before physical Light was created, with its Seven Spectral Colors.

This Oscillatory Frequency principle can also be expressed as atoms in the energy of a sound wave or vibration. This has led to the first theoretical framing of gravity in a quantum context that I am aware of, as seen in what follows. “At the atomic level, this mechanical energy vibration is known to be quantized in discrete amounts called phonons, just as an atom absorbs or emits the energy contained in the vibrations of the electromagnetic waves we call light, in discrete amounts called photons. And these phonons or “particles of sounds” just as the photons or “particles of light”, imply that the waves they belong to, propagate in discrete amounts called quanta. If a photon is a quantum of light, a phonon would be a quantum of sound. Both quanta were first believed to be massless, but up to very recently — and almost by accident — it was found that phonons do in fact carry a very small amount of mass. They are massive.”

This is no surprise, since Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2 tells us that there is an exact equivalence between energy and mass. To understand the meaning of the equation, we use the following image. Very roughly speaking, mass is confined vibration; it translates into a gravitational effect. Meanwhile, light is a propagating vibration, such that the boundary condition between propagating and confined vibration is precisely the proportional constant known as the speed of light; c, which sets the limit to the speed a mass can travel, i.e., a limit for the vibrations to remain confined, and hence exercise gravity. For this reason, electromagnetic (light) vibrations are energy carriers that remain massless in motion because they propagate at the speed of light. Since sound concerns propagating vibrations through phonons traveling slower than the speed of light, some mass is implied, even if traveling in air.”

We show that, in fact, sound waves do carry mass—in particular, gravitational mass. This implies that a sound wave not only is affected by gravity but also generates a tiny gravitational field, an aspect not appreciated thus far. Our findings are valid for nonrelativistic media as well, and could have intriguing experimental potential.”12

This new light from scientific research depicts the unity of Space-time based upon a unity of sound and light, from a quantum view, again upholding the accuracy of God’s Word, even as elements of modern science are bearing this out. The ramifications for Cause and Effect remain to be seen for this new Quantum theory of sound, but it bears watching.

The image of the Vesica Piscis, above is an expression of God speaking Creation into being, but is not limited to philosophical discourses, since it can be witnessed as we behold this pattern of Creation in the order of the Heavens.

The graphic below shows another view of the precession of the poles from the perspective of the interlocking circles of the ecliptic and Equator, at the North pole, with the fish-shaped lozenge of the vesica between them. This “vessel of the fish” is formed from the lozenge of these two over-lapping circles, of the Venn Diagram or Vesica Piscis, the center of each located on the perimeter
of the other.  Archimedes called the formula linked with this, the “Measure of the fish.” This can also be representative of Christ, who is the One mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus, [1 Tim. 2:5]. Its import to math and geometry was found in the ratio of its height to its length [153:265], and the fact that it represented the nearest whole number approximation of the square root of 3, along with the controlling ratio of equilateral triangles.11 This provides a sonic signature from which we can explore the genuine patterns of God’s voice-print of creation, and His application of mathematics and geometry in His structure and ordering of Creation.

celestial design of the heavens

In the act of Creation the Infinite, Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent Heavenly Father revealed some of his attributes in His Spoken, Written and Incarnate Word. We find this illustrated in the Vesica Piscis above. As the first Circle spoke the second circle into manifestation, it revealed this double circle Vesica form. These are the extreme Northern Skies, around which all creation turns, representing God’s dwelling in the Mount of the Congregation in the Sides of the North, where Lucifer desired to exalt his throne above the stars of the True God, [Isa. 14:13, Job 26:7-10]. Here resides the secret knowledge of God, that He has not yet revealed. These are some of the Mysteries that He will take eternity to reveal unto His Church in the spiritual body of Christ, [Deut. 29:29]. We can also see God’s secret and infinite Attributes under Elohim/Eloah, vs. those He shared with Christ in the Vesica and the Northern skies, vs. those He shares in Christ with the Church in the outer third of the Vesica, depicting a dynamic pattern of revelation, not only concerning God’s attributes, but also concerning precessional time of the Northern pole stars, relative to the earth’s astronomical history. As we consider the Vesica and its sacred geometry, the following root rectangles can be found within the Vesica Piscis: √2, √3 and √5.

 The first number that we see is √2, a sacred number found in Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. The square symbolizes unity in our physical universe, √2 symbolizes duality. What really captivates our attention here is that the very pattern of the structure of the firmament conforms not only to the overlapping circles of the Vesica Piscis, illustrating the impact of the Creator thundering His Voice, leaving a permanent imprint on the order of the Heavens themselves. But to leave no doubt, we find this identical double square rectangle preserved in Scripture serving as blueprints for the Temple at Jerusalem.

Plate 7. Square Root of Two — 1.414 : 1 — the Square. 14

square.gif
The Square Side (AB)
= 1 Diagonal (AC)
= Sq Root of Two, 1.414
In sacred geometry, the square represents the physical world. If its side is one, its perimeter is exactly four, and its area is one square – exactly.

The diagonal of a square whose side is 1 is √2, or 1.4142135624∞. This is what is called an “irrational number.” While there are several ways to describe an irrational number, one definition is, “a decimal number that never ends, never repeats.” Never ends? That takes it to infinity (∞) – into the spiritual. So while the square represents the physical, it has within it, a connection to the spiritual. All sacred geometrical figures have this connection.

The square was found in the Holy of Holies (G,H,F,E) and the Holy Place was a double square [C,D,E,F] in the Temple showing the blueprints of a 1 x 2 rectangle of the Temple housing the Ark of the Covenant. (These dimensions are from the 1st part of Ezek. 41.) solstemp.gif

Plate 8. Jerusalem Temple Cross-section.

Solomon's Temple

 This view powerfully depicts how the Temple and Tabernacle symbolized God’s celestial design of the heavens, seen in their two altars, mirroring the two poles of the ecliptic and the Celestial Equator. This also agrees with many of the principles seen in the pattern of God’s Intelligent Design inherent in His Creation. Since the “pattern of the Tabernacle” contains the phi ratio also known as the “divine proportion” or the golden section we can see definitive Biblical evidence that this universally recognized standard of measure is truly divine in origin, since the dimensions of these sacred architectural structures were given by revelation from God to Moses and King David.

We should keep in mind that this double-square, (1x 2 rectangle) configuration of the Temple court containing the phi ratio, is also found in the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant [Ex. 25:10], along with in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. The dynamic celestial equator, the second circle secular in nature, relates to both the civil calendar year and the earthly Equator mirrored above into the heavens. The movement of the equatorial pole around the static pole of the ecliptic is what is known as the precession of the poles. The intersection points of the ecliptic and Celestial
Equator are called the equinoctial points, known as the Spring and Fall equinoxes, where
 the length of daylight is equal to the dark of night. The altar in the Holy of Holies, keeping the
Ark of the Covenant is represented in the sacred pole of the ecliptic, around which the equatorial pole moves, both wheels, inter-locked in the form of a Venn Diagram, depicting God’s personal presence among His people.

In the Old Testament, God’s presence was only accessible annually as the people obeyed the guidelines of the Law carried out by the High Priest, to cover for their sins. The pattern of eastern access, holds true not only for Solomon’s Temple of the Old Testament, but also remained intact for the latter Temple referred to in Ezekiel 43.

 By liberating the divine blueprint of the Temple and Tabernacle from a profane orientation that has served to distort its original pattern, perhaps new light can be shed upon the true Godly design and purpose hidden in these divine architectural blueprints. By allowing God’s Word to speak for itself in this important area, we introduce a fresh perspective to the field of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy, emphasizing the liberating power of adopting a genuine Biblical perspective in this meaningful area of research. This allows us to catch new glimpses of glories long hidden from astrologers and empiricists, whose practices for far too long have clouded the inherent grandeur of the Creator’s sacred architecture.

The Almighty Creator in His infinite wisdom and power built Fibonacci’s golden ratio not only in the foundation of the order of our Solar System, but in all four kingdoms of life on earth, not to mention in the design of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle. As our solar system reflects the larger order of the spiral galaxies, so they also reflect the sonic and visible spectrums of the Light of God, emerging from the sound of His spoken Voice. This proof and evidence of Intelligent Design cannot be explained by natural law or natural selection, because it does not serve any evolutionary survival value and no cause other than support for a Creator Who is the First Cause, and Deliberate DESIGNER expressing the beauty and purposes of the Works of His Hands. In order for the Musical order of the solar system to take place, all of the planets had to conform to a certain Mass in order to move in a Certain Period and Distance. If any planet had been smaller or larger than they are, the pattern could not exist. Thus here is evidence that the size of the planets was predetermined by the Creator to have the planets move in a particular Aesthetic Harmony.

Scientist Ray Tomas has developed a theory called the ‘Harmonics of the Universe’. For many years Ray Tomas had been working in business for clients, developing economic models to forecast market developments and commodities pricing. Eventually he discovered cyclic behavior in stock market prices that were harmonics of the planetary periods. He also found musical ratios in the harmonics involving fractions of 3/2, 4/3 and 2 and proportions of 4:5:6:8 that formed major cords in the musical scale. His theory now suggests that many cyclic events occurring in nature such as biological, physical, and economic cycles have harmonic frequencies that are interrelated much like the notes in music. Tomas found that many economic cycles are pure harmonics of the Sun’s rotation, like the Sunspot cycle of 11.07 years. The Sunspot cycle is the cycle in the Sun’s activity that decreases and increases in cycles culminating to a Solar Max every 11.07 years. Tomas believes that the cycles that we find in our Solar System are harmonics of even larger cycles occurring in our galaxy-the Milky Way. All galactic cycles eventually are believed to be harmonics of a single universal cosmic cycle. Even as we find with the witness of Scripture with the unity of Sound and light, and the Vedic (the language of the Vedas, an early Sanskrit form) has always explained that the universe is the result of one primordial resonating vibration, known in eastern religions as the Ohm sound of creation. In a sense it could be said that our uni-verse follows a symphony of one huge song, spoken into being by the Almighty God. 15

Another example of a related area of research in harmonic laws related to the solar system concerns Bode’s Law. When compared to the superior accuracy of the Fibonacci series, Bodes Law shows an average deviation of 15%, while the 8 planets and 2 dwarf planets of our solar system show only an average deviation of 2.75%, from the Fibonacci Series. Bode’s Law relates to the distances of the planetary orbits starting with Mercury and moving away from the Sun. As we consider each planetary orbit, related to the orbit of each planetary neighbor in the solar system, we
can observe a recurring pattern of conjunctions. This provides an innovative way to view planetary conjunctions as musical chords. These planetary observations have noted that regular recurring conjunctions between the planets, take place in cyclical periods producing chords with high accuracy in the diatonic notes of an octave.

“The numbers above the “Years line” indicate the conjunctions of each planet with the Sun and the Earth. The numbers in the Planet rows depict the number of conjunctions the planet makes with the Sun and earth in the related time periods. As Jupiter completes 11 conjunctions nearly every 12 years, so it appears on the 24th, 36th & 48th year. However, every 24 years Jupiter not only conjuncts with the Earth, but also Mercury and Venus, producing a four-planet alignment. Every 36th year Jupiter conjuncts not only the Earth again, but also the Asteroid Belt. Then again in the 48th year, Jupiter repeats its union with Mercury and Venus, completing this Octave of planetary unions,  suggesting a series of Cosmic Chords.17
The regular planetary conjunctions depicted in this chart, take place in specific time intervals and their ratios of orbital resonance reflect with high accuracy the diatonic notes of an octave. 

Because the Phi ratio is pervasive through the kingdoms of life, from the telescopic to the microscopic, it represents more than just a geometric pattern ruling life. It also lays down a pattern that life follows to reach a closer fellowship with the Creator. As with the Nautilus shell based on the numbers of an algorithmic spiral provide the ideal environs for the Nautilus at each stage of its physical growth-life, so we see this principle illustrated in the structure of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle. In a previous teaching called the Father of Lights, we illustrated in Gen. 1, that whenever God spoke, something wonderful resulted. The Sound of His voice is antecedent to light which we can see in the following reference:

“And God said, Let there be Light and there was Light. And God saw the Light, that it was good: and God divided the Light from the darkness.” The entrance of God’s Word always brings light, [Ps. 119:130], so as God spoke to give Light; the Sound of His voice precedes Light.

The graphic above depicts a universal musical scale based on the sonic frequencies of color and light.
The most elemental state of vibration is that of sound. Everything has an optimum range of vibration (frequency), and that rate is called resonance.

It seems that the Fibonacci series and the Phi ratio or golden section holds a unique piece of property at the perceived cross-current between science and religion, although there is more code of the Fibonacci series on the sub-atomic level in DNA than anything man has ever developed. This information did not appear by chance or out of nowhere, it was already put there by the same Designer that put His own “seal of approval” on some of the other aspects of His kingdoms of Creation, marked by the same math and geometry.

These divine ratios and proportions, being the Golden Section, Pi, Phi and others, identifies these as a conscious exercise in the laws of harmony and proportion as found in nature and in the human body, culminating in the awakening of divine consciousness in Solomon’s Temple, but even more in the Church and Spiritual body of Christ. [I Cor. 6:19, Jn. 2:21]

Ultimately, it is only the fool in his heart that says there is no God! [Ps. 14:1]

This month’s post is the result of a realization and desire to improve accessibility to the blog studies on this site, as the Archive is insufficient on its own. With separate hyperlinked access
to each blog, it is much easier to navigate the individual studies here, and cross-reference related topics for further study. With our 5th Anniversary quickly approaching on the 4th of July, it
is high time for these improvements, which will be further augmented with a Table of Topical Studies where related blogs can be grouped as a study aid. I’m so thankful for all the readers that are blessed by these studies, especially the contributors who have and will share God’s Wisdom inherent in His Word, related to these topics of Science and Biblical Astronomy.

The Father of Lights

God Bless everyone, I’m Very Blessed to have another opportunity to share on Tune-in Tuesday in this great “Attributes of God” series. In recent sessions Rev. Nessle taught about some ancient Greek ideas and traditions from Plato, Socrates & Aristotle, that centered on 4 key points where Greek Philosophy negatively affected Judeo-Christian thought. Jon quoted from Chapter 2 of “The Semantics of Biblical Language” by James Barr, and I’d like to open with a focus on at least 2 of these key points tonight.  Rev. Nessle also spoke about obliterating what he called the “Perfection Infection” from Greek Philosophy, supported by the “I Am” teaching related to “God’s Being,” that gave rise to a field of study called “Ontology.” Jon suggested we should take the rare opportunity to obliterate this entire category of study, so it occurred to me; what better way to undermine this area of ontological study than to show how the adversary built a basis for this attack against the true God, on the Serpent’s temptation of Eve in the Garden of Eden. The Four points of Greek thought and influence on western culture identified by Barr are:

1. Static vs. Dynamic or Being vs. Becoming [Concept of God/Time]
2. Abstract vs. Concrete
3. Greek Mortal & Immortal Soul vs. Hebrew “Soul”-Nephesh
4. Analytical
[divisive] vs. Unified Semitic Thought

Our two points of focus tonight are: #1 & #3.

To understand this first point of Static vs. Dynamic we need to grasp how The Creator set up His original Balances of Justice to see how the serpent deceived Eve with his counterfeit.

Gen. 2:7-9

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. The Lord God planted a garden east-ward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
15 Then the Lord God took [d]the man and put him in the garden of Eden to [e]tend and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you[f] shall surely die.”

Our position regarding the only genuine power of the human mind is simple, the only power originating in the human mind is freedom of will. With this God-given ability, men and angels can choose what to believe. In The Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were created as freewill agents who had an innocent knowledge of good, evil remained a potential and they were not ashamed before God. God’s gift of Freedom of Will is a central pillar of God’s Light, demonstrating His Goodness. He does not desire a family of robots! Since God is the perfectly Just God, and in order for freedom of will to be a reality, God had to make the potential for an alternative to His Will available, or else He would be legislating the outcomes, since the only options available to man would have been in accordance with God’s Will. In this sense, God’s balances of justice were set in a state of equilibrium from the start,  because an alternative to His Will was only a potential according to angelic and human choice. As long as men and angels obeyed the truth of God’s Will the fruits of God’s perfect creation were enjoyed by all, but with the disobedience of God’s Will, calamity ensued.

In my first teaching in this series we introduced an Attribute of God as the Father of Lights.  Tonight we will expand on that concept beginning in Genesis 1.

In Genesis 1:3 “God said let there be light and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good, and God Divided the light from the darkness.”

This division of spiritual light from darkness is not the same as the division of day from night in the physical heavens, [Gen. 1:14-17], which represents the Creator’s temporal order, regulated by the solar, lunar and star calendars inherent in the celestial cycles of the Sun, Moon and Stars. The light of verses 3-4 was Spiritual light from the Almighty Creator-God that enlightened His Creation in the Heavens & Earth before the Sun, Moon and Stars were set in the heavens in verses 14-17, thus the division between light and darkness took place first in the Spiritual realm not the physical, as a result of the fallout from Lucifer’s revolt with the angels he deceived, in his coup attempt against God, [2 Pet. 3:4-7, Rev. 12:4]. As these angels rebelled they separated themselves from the Father of lights, and the potential evil that resulted from this disobedience; “Original Sin” was activated, in the spiritual realm, preceding the entropy of the physical realm. This lead to the first Heaven and Earth becoming without form and void, since we know that the Father of lights did not create it that way. As such the Creator and Father of Lights was above the spiritual corruption resulting from the Original Sin of the angels in Lucifer’s revolt. The Genesis Creation record picks up here showing God’s restoration of Creation in the 2nd Heaven and Earth.

Gen. 3:1-4

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LordGod had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’

Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was [a]pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves [b]coverings.

In the Genesis 3:4 record of the serpent’s temptation of Eve, on one level the serpent deceived Eve with the illusion that God was “in control” of the “necessary” boundaries of both Good and evil, because they were supposedly part of God’s Original Creation in the beginning. A key point here is the Serpent’s inclusion of God within these boundaries of both Good and evil as part of a false symbiotic temporal balance where order prevailed in a static universe of harmony and peace. Sounds nice doesn’t it? The serpent then tempted Eve with his altered static conception of God in Time, in the context of Eve’s self-gratification. In Gen. 3:6 the word “desired” in the Aramaic means “turned on” and is totally in the category of sexual self-gratification. Eve got to the point of lusting after this knowledge to gratify her selfish desire to possess this Wisdom of God, with the critical element of the knowledge of evil that the serpent presented as the key God was witholding, that was preventing her from sharing in the “true knowledge of God.” The serpent presented this outside of her sacred union in marriage with her earthly Lord-husband Adam, “liberated” from the godly relationship set up by the Heavenly Father, Who put the true godly knowledge of good without evil, in context of their sacred mutual relationship with their Heavenly Father of Lights.

Thus the serpent presented a scenario where the Almighty God was capable of both good and evil. The notion that God created both light and darkness “in the beginning” is a lie promulgated by the adversary-who would have us believe that God created the earth in chaos, or-“without form and void” so that he can paint a picture of God that of necessity embodies a balance of order and Chaos. This also allows the enemy to steal man’s worship directed to the true God, because of the false god of good and evil that the serpent replaced Him with. This dogma enables the adversary to bring God down to the level of the natural senses man, under the pretext of the “immortal soul” dogma, [#3 above] that the soul never really dies but, merely migrates to the next level of enlightenment on an infinite journey towards perfection. This is merely the Perfection infection, applied to the spiritual walk of mankind, embodied in the serpent’s lie that “ye shall be as god’s” knowing good and evil. This also supports a premise of “psychic power” that says by utilizing the principles of order one can harness and control the forces of chaos, by communing with, and developing the “spark of the divine” latent in the sub-conscious of all humanity. In reality however, this enables the spirit realm to control mankind through the power of this deception. Here we find the two-fold essence of the serpent’s lie in Genesis 3:4-6; “ye shall not surely die” and ye shall be as godsknowing good and evil, {poneros}.”

The serpent knew that succumbing to this temptation would kill man’s true spiritual link with God, so he told Eve she would “be as gods, knowing good and evil, implying that this shortcut to a truer knowledge of Good and a more intimate knowledge of God, was not available without the knowledge of evil, {poneros}. This lie forms the false foundation for the doctrine of the “immortal soul” that the human soul is synonymous with the spirit of God, because when the serpent told Eve she would not surely die, he was equating her life without God’s spirit after her fall, to her life with God’s spirit before the fall, telling her it would open her eyes to be as gods, knowing good and evil, [Romans 1:25]. This also removes the need to restore mankind via a spiritual new birth, and the need for redemption in Christ because according to the serpent, all humanity has the spark of the divine, and we are all “God’s children,” so our spiritual relationship is already living and intact. Here the enemy can substitute the counterfeit of his evil spirit realm in place of God’s holy spirit, like the “psychic gifts” of modern para-psychology vs. the manifestations of holy spirit; [1 Cor. 12 7-11] etc. The Serpent was tempting Eve to follow it’s example of “original sin” that corrupted the angels so he could bring destruction on mankind. Thus the adversary’s wicked false balances of a Static God were set upon these lies, upon a basis that God detests; [Prov. 11:1, 20:23]. “A false balance is abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight.”

Romans 1:25 Says men worship the creation more than the Creator thus turning the truth of God into a lie, because the man Christ Jesus [1 Tim. 2:5] is part of Creation and in Trinitarian dogma, the God-man is worshipped as Almighty God. The Trinity violates even the laws of physics because it is impossible for something to be both finite [human] and infinite God at the same time, and in the same relationship. This illustrates also that Trinity dogma is man-made because it is defeated by human logic and Science.

With this false doctrinal basis he could now transform his total dependence upon God as a parasite, into the illusory antithetical symbiotic relationship where each extreme- light/ darkness, order/chaos, good/evil, ostensibly required the other in order to exist. This is the false balance underlying the Stasis or a Static Greek God-concept, that inspired Jon’s comment that “we can’t understand or explain the Semitic concept of God’s Holiness with the Greek concept of God’s Perfection.” The adversary uses these false balances to make himself the creator of both Light and darkness which is exactly how most Christians perceive the true God today. This is built on the flawed understanding of [Isa. 45:5-7] which negates these false balances in vs. 5-6, since there is No God beside the Almighty;

Isa. 45:5-7 
I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

This is a great example of the [idiom of permission] because it is impossible for God to create darkness since God is Light, and darkness is the absence of Light, what God created as the Father of Lights was potential for darkness when He created Free Will both with Angels and Mankind.

Js. 1:17 Father of Lights

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

If man got anywhere near the spiritual purity of God’s unshielded light, like a laser it would melt us down, so Jesus came to us as the fullness of God that can be witnessed on the level of human senses, which is illustrated in the “Attributes of God” chart. This is why no man has ever seen God [Jn. 1:18] in His raw form of Light. In the previous segment, I proposed a spectrum of 60 octaves of electromagnetic light, but in the interim, on my Facebook Group-the Biblical Astronomy Fellowship, a wonderful believer-Rachael Rogers known to many of you, sent me some information that really blessed and excited me, that documents 49 Octaves of Light which fits much better with the pattern of Bible truths in so many areas. I’m so thankful for Believers like Rachael who share their insights in the BA fellowship forum, making a vital and living exchange of ideas, where all can contribute, because it certainly is much bigger than my efforts in this area, that will really make this category of study come alive. As we allow the Word to speak for itself, the greatest truths of Scripture will only be understood in the context of the body of Christ, not just by “lone ranger” individuals, because the infinite truths of the Creator are far too vast and multi-dimensional for any single person to fathom, on their own. So I’m blessed to provide one of many forums where people can share in a specialized learning fellowship dedicated to the study of Biblical Astronomy and related topics, and I’m excited to take this opportunity to invite all interested in sharing, as we welcome and are enthused to hear your input, feedback and contributions!

The first thing that God called back into the re-ordering of Creation in Genesis 1 was light, because any genuine works of His Hands in Creation must be a manifestation of the Father of Lights. In Gen. 1, we find whenever God spoke, something wonderful resulted. The Sound of His voice is antecedent to light which we can see in the following reference:

“And God said, Let there be Light and there was Light. And God saw the Light, that it was good: and God divided the Light from the darkness.” The entrance of God’s Word always brings light, [Ps. 119:130], so as God spoke to give Light; the Sound of God’s Voice preceded Light. The info Rachael Rogers sent on the Oscillatory Frequency principle, rings true, since Sound is an Energy active on a lower Scale building towards light. This is an accurate way to grasp the Biblical principles of God’s Creation from a scientific viewpoint because based on this Oscillatory Frequency, Sound is Energy acting on a lower Scale, building towards light. As visible Light appears on the 49th Octave, it explains its Divine origin and relation; God is represented symbolically as a Circle of light going back to His Covenant with Noah [Gen. 9:12-17], the Number 7 being the perfect standard of God’s Creation. Since the Number 49 is the product of 7 X 7, it stands for each Circle of the spiral having been traversed 7 times as this beautiful Light Energy was preceded by Sound with its Seven Musical Notes, before Light was created, with its Seven Spectral Colors. This pattern in Creation has led to the idea that God’s Creation of the Cosmos consisted of traversing seven Circles.

Plate 2. The Visible light spectrum that registers to human vision is depicted below.

 

The electromagnetic spectrum is generally divided into seven regions, in order of decreasing wavelength and increasing energy and frequency: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays.

Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

We must remember what John 1:5 tells us about the relationship between light and darkness;

“And the light [God] shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” 2

In the book Jesus Christ is not God, regarding John 1:5, V.P. WW stated; “The clause in verse 5 is a general rather than a specific statement regarding light and darkness, it does not refer to a specific lime in the past, in the present or in the future, but rather it is making a general statement about all time. Darkness is the absence of Light. Light, heat and all forms of energy are measured in terms of the positive never the negative. The negative is the absence of the positive. Even from a scientific point of view there is no way darkness could comprehend light since darkness is the absence of light. That which does not exist cannot overcome that which exists.  JCNG 2nd edition, p. 97

The 49th Octave of Visible Light

Prism of Light

On the 49th Octave of Visible Light, as the Oscillatory Frequency per Second jumps to the high mark of 562,949,953,421,- 312, the middle of the Spectrum of Colors has come into existence, the first Visible Light starting around 318 Trillion Oscillations per Second, with a faint Red Color. While the range of the ear for hearing is from the Fourth to the 15th Octave, a span of 11 or 12 Octaves, the eye can sense only 1 Octave—the 49th. As soon as the 50th is reached, with its 1,125,899,906,842,624 Oscillations, the faint Violet of the Spectrum vanishes and for Seven more Octaves, the potent, but invisible Ultra-Violet Range of Radiations is entered. Before going further, we will look into some of the properties of Oscillatory Frequencies and the conversion of Sound Energy into Light. It is interesting that the transition from the 49th Octave to the 50th reflects a vanishing point from visible light to the invisible UV portion of the spectrum, perhaps mirroring an entrance to the spiritual realms.

All forms of energy including matter are composed of waves or vibrations. All the wavelengths of the E-M spectrum are traveling at the speed of light, just at different frequencies, which depicts all Creation emanating from the Sound of God’s Voice. When we combine these spectrums of light and sound according to sacred time of Sabbaths of seven weeks, or years, unto the 50-year Jubilee, we find these patterns cropping up in key biblical prophecies. The graphic below depicts the Musical Spiral of Frequency, Color and Light on a spiral ordered to the Fibonnacci Numbers. This illustrates not only the Creator’s fingerprint on Nature, but also the Voiceprint of the Father of Lights.

The Spirit of God is the Light of God in Concretion

In the closing segment of his “One God Seminar,” Jon Nessle taught on Isa. 11:1-2. This verse represents a summary of the OT manifestations paired according to this biblical structure of the spirit [H7307 ruach] of Jehovah- God in relationship to His creation, breath of life, a region of the sky-star. The repetition ofSpirit” at the start of these OT categories is the figure anaphora, while the ”ands” pairing these manifestations are the figure “polysyndeton,” emphasizing each of these categories.

Spectro-Chrome Prismatic Light

As God’s Spirit was manifest in the world [Isa. 11:1-2, I Cor. 12:7-11] so the light of God in its various forms are discernible in the senses realm. As Jon Nessle charted and paired these Old Testament manifestations in this seminar, he cited Biblical examples of Men of God that best reflected spiritual strengths in these areas of ministry. I noted @ the San Pedro Research Symposium that these manifestations matched well with aStar of David” geometric pattern in 2015, also evident in the info sent by Rachael Rogers this month, as seen above. This depicts the E-M and visible light spectrum illustrating the Principle of “The Spirit of God is the Light of God in Concretion,” that many of us learned in another ministry.

spirit; shall rest: [H5117 ruach-nuach] dwells, stays, gives comfort, quiet, which implies the peaceful mental framework which is required to receive the spirit into manifestation, emphasized by these rhyming words in Hebrew. [Isa. 26:3, Col. 3:10ff]

A. Spirit of Wisdom [H2451 chokmah] Skillful, wit. Word of Wisdom.
and: the pairing of revelation pertaining to the body-soul category, with the spiritual category.

B. Spirit of Understanding [H Biynah] Perfect knowledge and understanding. Discerning of Spirits.

C. Spirit of Counsel [H6098 etsah] prudent advice, plan, purpose, Blueprints. {pathos-healing}
and: Pairing of Healing with miracles as they are grouped in the Impartation manifestations in NT [I Cor. 14.]
D. Might [H1369 geburah] from H1368: force, valor, mastery, victory. Miracles– mighty acts of power and strength. Signs and wonders.

E. Spirit of Knowledge [H1847 daath] cunning from beyond the senses, Word of Knowledge.
and: the pairing of the word of wisdom-application of WOK with believing-MOB, where revelation is acted upon resulting in the impossible coming to pass.

F. Fear [H3374 yiraw] Moral reverence, dread, awesome respect of Jehovah.

Similar to the phrase, “God is love,” “God is light” also is a Biblical metaphor. But because it is stated this way, “God IS light” also is a transcendent trait.  The light spoken of here as Musical Spiral of Frequency, Color and Light is a spiral ordered to the Fibonnacci Numbers. This is one of many in-depth categories of the Father of Lights, in creation. As we see in the Four Kingdoms of Life, the Plant, [Matt. 6:28-30, 13:32] Animal, Human [Mk. 4:8, Lk. 1:80, 2:40, 1 Pet. 2:2] and Spirit Kingdoms, [Acts 6:7, 7:17, 12:24, 19:20,
1 Cor. 3:6-7, 2 Cor. 9:8-10, 10:15, Eph. 2:21, 4:15, Col. 1:10, 2:19, 2 Pet. 3:18], all exhibit the principles of algorithmic growth life conforming to the Fibonacci Number series. See my related blog;

The Four Kingdoms of Life-Plant Kingdom

Sunflowers show complex Fibonacci sequences

The Fibonacci spiraling shapes in cauliflower, artichoke, and sunflower florets (above) share a remarkable feature: The numbers of clockwise and counterclockwise spirals are consecutive Fibonacci numbers—the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8… , so each digit is the sum of the last two. What’s more, those spirals pack florets as tight as can be, maximizing their ability to gather sunlight for the plant. But how do plants like sunflowers create such perfect floret arrangements, and what does it have to do with Fibonacci numbers? A plant hormone called auxin, which spurs the growth of leaves, flowers, and other plant organs, is the key: Florets grow where auxin flows. Using a mathematical model that describes how auxin and certain proteins interact to transport each other around inside plants, researchers could predict where the hormone would accumulate. Simulations of that model reproduced patterns exactly matching real “Fibonacci spirals” in sunflowers, as reported this month in Physical Review Letters. Based on their results, the researchers suggest that such patterns might be more universal in nature than previously thought… [ScienceShot: Sunflowers Do the Math By Nathan Collins 

These geometric patterns ruled by Fibonacci Series are seen consistently across all aspects of the Natural world. In the graphic below we see an image reproduced from a “Cymascope” which is an instrument that makes sound or music visible, generating detailed 3D impressions of sound or music vibrations. The studies allowed by this tech of the visual geometry of sounds shows a symmetry that is invariant from the largest structures of spiral galaxies to the smallest scales of quantum reality. The image below is the as seen above in the pattern of sunflower florets with numbers of clockwise and counterclockwise spirals as consecutive Fibonacci numbers. Another intriguing element found in this image of the 528 Hz frequency sound produces a 360 degree circle uniquely containing 36 nodes: that mirrors the structure of the heavens, with 12 signs of the Mazzaroth each with 3 decans, yielding 36 signs in all. This also conforms to the Voice of God as he spoke the heavens into existence on the 4th day of Creation; [Gen. 1:14-19]. Once again we see the entrance of God’s Word bringing light in the structure of the celestial gospel, as God’s Word was written in the heavens before it was ever written in the OT.

Plate 5

With CymaScope images of the visual geometry of sounds, we see that they include many of the mathematical constants of the universe, including phi, sometimes known as the ‘golden mean’. This ratio is approximately 1 to 1.618 and it is found in all living things, thus depicting the link between Sound of God’s Voice and the life He spoke into being. If we examine the D.N.A molecule, we see that it appears as a 10-fold form, over which can be drawn a pentagon, depicting  that DNA, the key to life, contains again the phi ratio.

This sacred pattern is also witnessed in the seven-branched Menorah as we find in Exodus.

Exodus 25:31-40
31 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. 32 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side: 33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick. 34 And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers. 35 And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick. 36 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold. 37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it. 38 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold. 39 Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels. 40 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.

Verse 37 indicates the purpose of the lamps of the Menorah, “that they may give light…’ It is noteworthy that this is the same purpose of the celestial luminaries stated in Genesis 1:14-16. Interestingly, the word for “lights” in the firmament [Gen. 1:14, 16: *H216-maor] is the same word used in reference to the lamps of the Menorah, (Exodus 20:27, 35:14). Moreover, the same Hebrew word that refers to the Menorah’s individual lamps, also refers to the celestial lights of the Sun and Moon in Gen. 1:16. Thus we have a perfect relation between the purpose of the individual celestial lights and the individual lamps of the candlestick, to shed light upon the Earth. The emphasis with a Sun-centered system is placed on the Light of God. God’s Light is the Source of Life on Earth, even as God is the Father of Lights.

Genesis 1:14-16
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: [15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. [16] And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Since the same Hebrew words are used in reference to both the luminaries of the firmament and the lamp-stand of the Tabernacle, we are wise to notice the details of the Menorah’s celestial symbolism.

Ex. 25:33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.”

James Strong’s geometric synopsis of this verse states:
It will be perceived that each section of the semicircles of which these lines are the radii is composed of two members: the shank (a plain tube) and the bulb (or swell), and that each has a third part or base (a circular double flange, as a means of connection, hence an actual joint) only where it is united to a different kind of piece; i.e., at the bottom and top of the central shaft and of the six arms, including the intersections of the shaft with the arms.”8 [emphasis mine]

Plate 6. The Hebrew Menorah

central shaft and of the six arms

When we apply what we have already seen in the Biblical teaching of the Sun’s dual symbolism, to the Menorah, then it takes on a new light, associating the Sun not only with the solar system, but also the circular zodiac. The very structure of the Menorah shows its central shaft as the foundation of the candle, since it holds the main light as the centerpiece of the candlestick. All the branches of the candlestick are attached to the central shaft, even as they obtain their light from the main candle. This pattern is mirrored in the solar system as the planets and moons do not generate their own light, but reflect the light of the Sun, as they orbit around it. We find not only the order of the solar system reflected here but also that of the ecliptic with 12 Constellations. This is evident in the semi-circular pattern based on the pi ratio. By expanding on Strong’s analysis of the Menorah this will come to light. In Strong’s smaller geometric model of the Menorah, we note bulbs on the six branches of the candlestick that are projections of the central bulb, from whence all the radiating lines of the central light emanate. These projections of the central light on the six branches, (five naked eye planets and the Moon) depict how these luminaries reflect the Sun’s light in their individual orbits upon the Earth. This system shines light on the temporal periods and orbits of each naked-eye planet in our solar system, in relation to the Sun’s light. This is revealed in the mathematical context of  the base 60 standard, a primary trait of the Creator’s celestial order. The symbolism of the candle-stick also extends beyond our solar system to include the circle of 12 signs of the zodiac. Strong’s emphasis above on the geometric design of the Menorah, exhibits the Hebrew zodiac as in Genesis 49, with Jacob’s prophesies over his twelve sons. We should note that these lines noted by Strong as “the radii of the semi-circle,” reflecting the symbolic light of the world, if extended into a complete circle, the radii would divide it into 12 equal parts of 360 degrees of the circle according to the pi ratio. We can be safe in making this conceptual leap in the implied design of the Menorah, because we have already seen this pattern in the Temple pillars: Jachin and Boaz. This makes the Menorah the most complete piece of the furniture of the Temple and Tabernacle, acting as a celestial symbol of the structure of both our solar system and the zodiac. It is the most complete because it is the third aspect we have observed that utilizes the pi ratio, following on the great Brazen Sea and the Temple pillars. These aspects of The Celestial Symbolism of the Temple and Tabernacle utilize the pi ratio to depict the Hebrew calendar of 12 months of 30 days in the sacred 360-day year utilized by Noah. But the Menorah goes beyond this, embracing the planets in a heliocentric model of the ancient solar system, long before the Greek Aristarchus of Samos proposed it in the 2nd century BC.

We find other aspects of this celestial symbolism in the Book of Revelation.

We can find evidence of this symbolism revealed in detail in the Book of Revelation, where all these things are fulfilled. Here John’s vision of the future in the Revelation Administration begins:

Revelation 1:10-20

10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. 19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Verses 12-16 above relate the description of the “Son of Man” as the one in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks, shining as the Sun in his strength, [v.16]. This identifies the Sun, personified as Christ, [Mal. 4:2] holding seven stars, shining in the center of the seven branches of the candlestick. These seven celestial luminaries are associated with the angels of the seven churches in Rev. 1:20. Here God’s Word draws a direct comparison, first, between the Sun in the center of the Candlestick, embodied in Christ. This sets the context wherein we can understand the symbolism of the other branches of the Menorah. Secondly, the angels of the seven churches are embodied in Seven Stars held in Christ’s right hand.

 This gives us a glimpse of a seven-fold Order of Angelic Realms in Christ’s right hand, that mirrors His seven-fold Lordship over the Church of his spiritual Body, [Eph. 6:12]

So tonight we have seen some of the magnificent glory of the Father of Lights, not from a static but very dynamic Heavenly Father. We can see that our full fellowship with God thru Christ is spiritual, yet he is concerned with every aspect of our soul-life, not an immortal soul! We have scouted the tempter’s game-plan vs. Eve and made strides to undermine the Greek-inspired ontological philosophies of the “perfection infection,” to avoid these pitfalls in order to obliterate this “theo-illogical” category of study, knowing that God is light which was preceded by the Voice of the Almighty, and darkness is the absence of lite. We have seen a clearer view of the 49 Octaves of Light, and not only that, but how the spirit of God is the Light of God in Concretion, and how these mathematical and geometric principles form the foundation of the 4 Kingdoms of Life in Creation. Finally, we have seen how these multiple patterns of seven are found in the Menorah symbolizing a sevenfold order of angels mirrored in the spiritual body of the Church of Christ.

The awesome beauty of God’s Kingdom in Christ, is truly something to behold, understand and walk in boldness!

God Bless!!
