"REPLY TO PAUL WILSON -- New Jerusalem's Walls 144 cubits High or Thick?"
> > In reply to your 2/03 post at http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/feb2012/paulw23-1.htm you ask a very interesting question as to whether the 144 cubits refer to the height or thickness of New Jerusalem's walls. I never thought about it being the thickness of the walls until you brought up the subject. I don't know what the real answer to your question is but the link at this website would agree with the 144 cubits referring to the thickness of the walls at http://www.heraldmag.org/2006/06ja_9.htm They also state that not only are there 4 walls around New Jerusalem but a wall on top of it and at the bottom of it because it is shaped like a cube with 12 edges.I think New Jerusalem is a globe, whose length, width and height are equal. In the Temple, the Holy of Holies represented Heaven, a globe that will fit inside a cube of the same dimensions. When New Jerusalem comes down to orbit Earth, it will be like the Moon, and people on Earth will walk in the light of it.The Moon is a globe. It is made up of rocks from our Pacific Basin. After being blasted off of Earth by a colliding heavenly body, they formed a globe-shaped body. Orbiting bodies formed by accretion end up being globe-shaped, because each little rock tries to get as close to the center of gravity as possible.The Holy Place in the Temple is made up of two cubes. I think those cubes also represent globes, Mars and Jupiter, our first two heavens. The Holy of Holies represents the third heaven, the globe we call Saturn. Our planet is 70% ocean. I think it was mainly represented by the Brazen Sea that stood before the Temple.Josephus, a Pharisee priest, said that the candlestick represented the planets with the Sun included, i.e., Sun (the western lamp that was to be kept burning), Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, the last naked-eye planet.Jesus’ throne is on Saturn. Eze saw a vision of a God-Man, i.e., Jesus, sitting on his throne on Saturn that had brightness all around. This brightness represented the ring system.In Eze 1:1, Ezekiel said “the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.” In verse 15, we find that the Earth is one of the four terrestrial planets, whose orbits form concentric circles, rings within rings.In Eze 1:26-28, we see Jesus, the only God/man sitting on his throne. It says, “26 And above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out in space than the four terrestrial planets) was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a SAPPHIRE stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (i.e., the only God/man) above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins (from the equator) even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about (i.e., Saturn’s ring system). 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.”Sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit priya, dear, and Sani , Saturn.Agape,Marilynmjagee@verizon.net
