The Mystery of the Holy City

 

IMPORTANT This document was published internally on February 10, 2018. It is now being made public as of January 1, 2019.

Is there anyone who hasn’t read the last two chapters of the Revelation of Jesus Christ and, despite the many descriptions of the Holy City, asked what it might look like in reality!? So many details and yet—no one can imagine it.

There are the immense dimensions of the city, with an edge length of 2218 km and—as it says in Revelation 21:16—the same unimaginable height. If you take the summit of the highest mountain of the earth, where the air is barely breathable, then the Holy City still towers about 2209 km further up, far into space. These are planetary proportions; the Holy City almost reaches the diameter of our largest satellite, the moon, with its diameter of 3474 km.

But God seems to have forgotten an important detail in the plan of His Holy City! With this information, it could be either a cube or a pyramid, and nobody—absolutely nobody—could really solve the mystery of the shape of the Holy City. And yet a person can now read the cheeky statement in some modern Bible translations that the Holy City is a cube, which no one could say so far with certainty.

I have also speculated in some of the articles about what shape the Holy City might have, and I based my assumption that it could have the shape of a pyramid on the fact that Satan—as the great copycat—likes to build pyramids and be worshipped there as the sun god. But so far this was no more than a guess, and nobody completely understood the many other details about the wall and the “foundations” of the city, because a key was lacking that had to be revealed.

In the week of the last Sabbath of 2017, God began to reveal the mystery of the Holy City through His Holy Spirit. Now the time has come to know all, to prepare the 144,000 for life in God’s kingdom...

I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John 16:12-13)

For those who will soon inhabit the Holy City, nothing remains hidden. We have reached the last two chapters of the book of Revelation, and of the Bible, and God expressly points out that the solving of mysteries and the writing of books has come to an end.

Order out of Chaos?

It didn’t all begin, in fact, with the question of the plan of the Holy City, but with a completely different problem: namely, that of the strange order of the tribes of the 144,000 sealed in Revelation 7.

I had worked for some time on this seemingly unsolvable riddle, and for comparison, I made lists of the tribes that can be obtained from the Old Testament. There are whole libraries worth of PDFs on the Internet by Bible students who have tried to analyze the same problem, but no one comes to a truly solid conclusion about the strange order and naming of the tribes in the New Testament.

Not wanting to go into the many fruitless attempts to decipher this divine mystery, it is enough to reproduce what the Adventist Bible Commentary has to say about Revelation 7:4-8 [red is from me]:

All the tribes. Twelve tribes are listed here (vs. 5–8), but they are not entirely identical with the enumerations found in the OT (see Num. 1:5–15; Deut. 27:12, 13; cf. Gen. 35:22–26; 49:3–28; 1 Chron. 2:1, 2). The OT lists commonly begin with Reuben, whereas the present enumeration begins with Judah, perhaps because Christ came of the tribe of Judah (see Rev. 5:5). In the OT, Levi is sometimes not included as a tribe, though, of course, he is listed as a son of Jacob. This was doubtless because Levi received no inheritance among the tribes (see on Joshua 13:14). Here the tribe of Levi is counted, but not that of Dan. To reckon Levi and yet retain the number 12 it was necessary to omit one of the tribes, inasmuch as Joseph was reckoned as two tribes, namely Ephraim (probably called “Joseph” in Rev. 7:8) and Manasseh. Perhaps Dan was excluded because of that tribe’s reputation for idolatry (Judges 18:30, 31).

The order in which the tribes are listed here is different from any OT list. Some have pointed out that if vs. 7 and 8 are placed between vs. 5 and 6, the tribes follow in the order of Leah’s sons, Rachel’s sons, Leah’s handmaid’s sons, and Rachel’s handmaid’s sons—except for Dan, in whose place appears Manasseh. However, no particular point is gained by the rearrangement.

The names of some of the tribes are not spelled the same as in the OT. This is because the NT names are transliterated from the Greek, whereas the OT names are transliterated from the Hebrew. Greek transliterations of Hebrew names are often inexact because the Greek alphabet lacks certain sounds common in Hebrew.

That’s all—and you can search the Internet as much as you want, but you cannot get much more out of it, although you can waste many hours searching and reading.

However, a person can spare himself the futile effort of comparing many lists if he only follows the indication of God, which He freely gives us:

And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. (Revelation 7:4)

God makes a direct reference to the list of the sons of Jacob (whom God later gave the name “Israel”). This is found in the blessings of Jacob upon his sons in Genesis, chapter 49. We should compare with only this list and no other.

If you do so, you will immediately notice that there is only one change in the tribes per se: Dan has been replaced with Manasseh. However, the order of the sons (and grandsons) in Revelation 7 is quite different than the blessings in Genesis 49. Here is an overview:

Tribe Overview Table

There are studies on the Internet that explain this substitution by saying that Judas Iscariot came from the tribe of Dan, and that when Satan entered him, he fulfilled the following “blessing” of Jacob upon his tribal founder, Dan:

Dan shall judge his people [Remember: with Jesus’ death, judgment came upon this world!], as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord. (Genesis 49:16-18)

This is, of course, strongly reminiscent of the prophecy of Genesis 3:15, which was addressed to the serpent (Satan):

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou [Satan] shalt bruise his [Jesus’] heel. (Genesis 3:15)

Judas committed suicide, and thus his tribe disappeared from the list of the inhabitants of the Holy City. Does that mean everyone who belonged to the tribe of Dan, in the past and in the future, must be lost? Soon we will learn more about that.

As Below, So Above

Naturally, if you want to solve such a great and long-standing divine mystery, you need study help from the Holy Spirit. We looked up at the stars and didn’t run away from the “creeping things” of the heavenly constellations, as many do. We do not worship them either, but we recognize in the Mazzaroth one of the clocks of God. And we don’t worship our alarm clock either, as many seem to think!

Anyone who has been following my remarks in many videos and articles should have noticed that we also had to make one replacement in the Mazzaroth of the 12 constellations, not to equate Jesus’ character with that of a “scorpion”: we replaced that creature, which has a poisonous sting, with the eagle that is flying above him on the Galactic Equator, which stands for the King of Heaven and Jesus’ loving protection over His people.

That gives us the hint that God obviously means for us to assign the 12 tribes of Israel in Revelation 7 to the constellations of the Mazzaroth. I hinted at that briefly in Appendix C, which is about the 70-week prophecy, but of course not completely. Would there be a great outcry if we were to delve deep into the “zodiac” and assign each tribe of Israel to a place in the heavens?

But—as mentioned—we are not the only ones who have already tried that. God had shown me an article, a link to which I included in a footnote in Appendix C: The Unspoken Bible – The Stars of Israel

I could now retrace here the entire derivation of the assignment of the tribes of Israel to the heavenly constellations, but that would be reinventing the wheel. A few examples should suffice: which constellation would you assign to the “Lion of the tribe of Judah”? Or, what constellation goes with the son of Jacob who had the image of a man in the banner of the tribe that fulfills the following “blessing” from his father?

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch. (Genesis 49:3-4)

Of course, Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and Ruben is the water-man! Or, as we already discovered, the scorpion (Dan) must have been replaced by the eagle (Manasseh). Not every assignment is crystal clear, but we’ll come to that.

Here is a list of assignments according to the author of the article from the “Unspoken Bible”:

Tribe Constellation Table

Surely some of you would come this far, and maybe even a little further, if called to study the tribes of Revelation 7.

What is the next step? I would suggest drawing a star chart with the constellations and their associated tribes: a “tribal circle,” if you will. This is the result:

Mazzaroth Assignment

The next step, which will lead to the “first great disappointment,” is to connect the tribes with each other, with lines in the order they are enumerated in Revelation 7. It will look like this:

Mazzaroth Lines

Once I saw this “picture,” I lost the courage to continue. I took a break for several hours to pray. Then it occurred to me that I had not drawn something that was obvious in the list. Jesus divided the tribes into groups of three. What would I see if I were to draw these triplets in geometrical shapes commonly called triangles?

I did so... and ended up with my “second disappointment”:

Mazzaroth Triangles

Do you see any order in the chaos? After prayer and a good night’s sleep, God showed me the solution.

The Triangular Dodecagon

I noticed that there were two right triangles in this dodecagon, which surprised me, a non-mathematician. What if there were really four such triangles!? I envisioned a certain three-dimensional shape that could be formed from four right triangles, which the Holy Spirit obviously wanted to lead me to. The holy treasure fever had seized me! How would I have to change the assignments of the tribes to give the non-right triangles a square corner?

Perhaps you see it—a simple swap between the tribes of Naphtali and Issachar would bring us to a very harmonious result: four congruent right triangles from a dodecagon.

Tribe Corrections Table

 

Correct Mazzaroth Triangles

Are we allowed to do that, though? Did the author of the usbible.com assignment really make a mistake in mapping those two tribes? To find out, we should ask ourselves what references to the constellations we have from Jacob’s blessings upon these two sons:

Issachar is a strong ass, Couching down between the sheepfolds: And he saw a resting-place that it was good, And the land that it was pleasant; And he bowed his shoulder to bear, And became a servant under taskwork. (Genesis 49:14-15 ASV)

Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words. (Genesis 49:21)

When I “look up,” I find neither a donkey nor a hind in the heavens. So how does usbible.com justify their assignment?

Issachar rules Taurus the bull. Asses associate with bulls in the sense that they are both pulling animals. Taurus follows Aries the sheep in the zodiac.

Naphtali rules Aries the lamb. The sun enters Aries at the beginning of spring when fawns and lambs are born.

Taking a closer look, the donkey’s assignment to the bull is based on far-fetched logic, using the weak argument that both could pull a plow. And to say the sun enters the ram in the spring is only true for the northern hemisphere; fawns and lambs are born half a year later in the Southern Hemisphere, and it is well known that spring lasts for three months and not just one, which does not really support the argument.

We should let the Bible speak, and that’s what it has already done above, mostly unnoticed. We learn there later that the burdened “donkey” Issaschar is connected directly to one constellation in the heavens. Let’s read more carefully:

Issachar is a strong ass, Couching down between the sheepfolds: (Genesis 49:14 ASV)

What does the proposition that the donkey lies down between the sheepfolds add to the fate of Issachar? Nothing! But does it help us to understand which constellation the Lord assigns Issachar to? Absolutely, because in sheepfolds live sheep, and of course also rams!

If we follow the biblical text strictly, Issachar must be assigned to the ram and not to the bull. Not to commit the same mistake as the author from usbible.com, we do not assign the hind to the bull on the basis that they both have horns, but simply say that there is no indication in the blessing of a particular star constellation, because it is not is necessary since there is only one place in the heavens left for Naphtali: the bull.

We have made—at least for me as a layman—a completely new geometric discovery. All twelve points of a dodecagon can be connected—without repeating any point—with four right triangles. And this, apparently, is what God has done with the triplets of tribes enumerated in Revelation 7! But why?

The Pillars of the Temple

It is easy to answer this question when the Holy Spirit has already shown you the desired end result. When I presented the findings of this study to the brethren on Sabbath, December 30, 2017 in the temple of the White Cloud Farm, I realized that not everyone is given to conclude immediately—without much thought—what three-dimensional shape God wants to represent with the four two-dimensional triangles.

It was clear to me though that one could not build a cube of equal length, width, and height from these four right triangles, which have a different height (adjacent side) and width (opposite side), but that it was an important structural element of a pyramid. Of course, you cannot form the outer walls of a pyramid from the four right triangles, because they have no right angles.

If we wanted to split each of the lateral triangles of a pyramid into two right triangles, which would be possible geometrically by simply bisecting them from the top of the pyramid down, we would need eight (and not just four) such triangles.

Pyramid with 8 Triangles But God also gave me an immediate understanding of the structure He intended to show with the four right triangles, and the Bible verse associated with it:

Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out... (Revelation 3:12)

In countless articles and forum posts, we have consistently assumed that the church of Philadelphia is synonymous with the 144,000 sealed ones, because in Revelation 7 we find the prophecy of the delay in the sealing process, and in Revelation 3:12 is the threefold seal itself. It was legitimate to do so, but it would have been difficult for it to stand against the argumentation of educated critics, because there are many different seals in the Bible. The final identification of the 144,000 as the church of Philadelphia must be clearly underpinned by another proof. And “underpin” is to be understood here in the literal sense.

Therefore, if Philadelphia and the 144,000 are to be one and the same group, and if the members of the church of Philadelphia are pillars in the temple of God, then the 144,000 must also be.

Pillars are known to be the support of a larger, outwardly expanding structure of a whole: in this case, the temple. First, we must ask ourselves what the temple of God is, in the context of the Book of Revelation! After Jesus’ detailed description of the Holy City, John says:

And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. (Revelation 21:22)

We are plainly told that there is no temple in the Holy City. Yet Revelation 3:12 clearly speaks of the members of the church of Philadelphia as pillars in the temple! The Almighty God Himself will dwell among His people, together with His Son, at the “head” of the Holy City, since the latter also gives light to all the inhabitants of the city:

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God [the Holy City] is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. (Revelation 21:3)

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 22:5)

Slicing a Round FruitAnyone who reads this allegorically should keep in mind that we are given accurate construction dimensions of the Holy City, which seem incomplete at first glance because we lack a few key details to understand the blueprint. But now we know that out of the 12 tribes of the 144,000 sealed ones, four right triangles with cosmic proportions are formed, bearing in mind that the Mazzaroth holds the lines of the triangles. Does this mean that God’s giant spaceship can and will fly in every direction of the universe, divided into 12 sectors like big watermelon slices, or is there already an indication that the Holy City is about more than just a vehicle, and spaceship cabins for Jesus and the saints?

A diagram should help us understand how the four triangles can represent the inner support structure of a pyramid:

Pyramid Geometry

Here are two possible right triangles for inner support. Either the pyramid is supported by four right triangles formed by the central height (h) and the side edges (s) of the pyramid, or the pyramid gets its rigidity from four triangles that support the faces that correspond to their respective slant height (ha) edge. Statically, the latter solution would be far more stable, since the side faces of the pyramid already support each other at their edge (s) anyway. With the four triangles having angle α, the pyramidal ship would be far more stable.

But God does not leave us in the dark concerning this detail, because the angel with the golden reed measures the width (a) and length (a) and also the height (?) of the pyramid, which must all be the same (!) value of 2218 km or 12,000 furlongs.

And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. (Revelation 21:15-16)

I have placed a question mark in parentheses for the height, because in a pyramid, there are three different indications of elevation that could be meant: the center height (h), the edge of the side faces (s) or the outer height or slant height (ha).

In order to find out by trial and error—like me—which of the two possible solutions is used for the arrangement of a right triangle support, and which results in a height equal to the length and width of the pyramid, I reference two simple calculators for such geometric tasks, available on the Internet:

A dodecagon calculator that calculates the correct proportions of any support triangle (d2, d4, and d6) from a dodecagon as defined by the Mazzaroth, from only one entry out of a number of options, and a pyramid calculator[1] in which you enter two of the previously calculated values for the right triangle to find out if any resulting height (h, ha, or s) equals the side length (a) of the pyramid.

The unambiguous result is that the support triangles indeed support the middle of the pyramid faces, as we already guessed from the static arrangement, because then—and only then—is the outer height or slant height (ha) equal to the width and length (a) of the pyramid. If the triangles were fitted between the center height and the edges (s) of the pyramid’s lateral faces, none of the three heights would equal the length or the width.

The correct arrangement of the four triangles from the tribes in the Mazzaroth, on their square base, looks like this:

Support Triangles

Why does God give us the slant height, and not the inner height of the central axis of the pyramid as 2218 km like many who believe in a pyramidal shape for the Holy City mistakenly accept, and thus come to a pyramid that is too steep?

If these people had read more attentively and thought more carefully about what the apostle John had been shown, they could have come to the conclusion that the text says that the angel holds a measuring reed in his hand and faces the task of measuring an immense pyramid, about whose interior nothing is revealed and perhaps should not be. So the apostle could only have been given external dimensions, and the angel could easily ascertain the height of the slope (ha) of the pyramid by using his measuring reed during the ascent along the pyramid’s side—without “flying” up the vertical wall of a giant cube. Nowhere is there any mention of the angel going inside the Holy City, climbing from “deck to deck” to measure the vertical height (h) of the pyramid.

Friends, we have solved the first mystery, which no one has been able to answer with certainty: we now know the exact dimensions (inside and outside) of the pyramid, and we even know its inner structural framework! And now we have the perfect proof that the 144,000 who are sealed in Revelation 7 are the main “pillars” of the Temple of God, as are the members of the church of Philadelphia. It follows that the 144,000 are the church of Philadelphia. Thus the hermeneutic connection between the sealing in Revelation 7 and the seal itself in Revelation 3:12 is now clearly established (the 144,000 are sealed with the knowledge of the time of the coming of Jesus)! Isn’t that great? Well, we actually already knew that.

The Twelve Foundations

I have read the description of the Holy City countless times in my life, and for me, what God meant by the twelve foundations (KJV) or foundation stones (NLT, e.g.) was always incomprehensible—where and how these should be arranged.

And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation 21:14)

And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. (Revelation 21:17)

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; (Revelation 21:19)

Some languages translate “foundations” along the lines of “bases,” and indeed why should a foundation, which is usually just like a foundation stone under the earth, be decorated? And how could the apostle John see this?

One might come up with the idea of adding the twelve “foundations” of the Holy City at the bottom of the pyramid and decorating their visible sides with twelve different gemstones. Then the 12 foundations together would be the wall, and that would be approximately 75 m (144 royal cubits) high. Is that what God meant?

Foundation Stones

We should apply our new knowledge when it comes to further deciphering the blueprint of God’s great City. I’ve often wondered how many decks this 2218-kilometer “spaceship” would have, how high each one would be, and whether we would have to huddle into small cabins while flying through the universe or have plenty of space to walk around. I imagined the decks, stacked on top of each other, and came up with such an incredible amount of surface area in my quick calculations that I had to assume that the great multitude and innumerable other creatures would also have to be housed in the ship, so it wouldn’t have a yawning emptiness. Ellen G. White, however, had seen a very different panorama of the Holy City from the outside:

With Jesus at our head we all descended from the city down to this earth, on a great and mighty mountain, which could not bear Jesus up, and it parted asunder, and there was a mighty plain. Then we looked up and saw the great city, with twelve foundations, and twelve gates, three on each side, and an angel at each gate. We all cried out, “The city, the great city, it’s coming, it’s coming down from God out of heaven,” and it came and settled on the place where we stood. Then we began to look at the glorious things outside of the city. There I saw most glorious houses, that had the appearance of silver, supported by four pillars set with pearls most glorious to behold. These were to be inhabited by the saints. In each was a golden shelf. I saw many of the saints go into the houses, take off their glittering crowns and lay them on the shelf, then go out into the field by the houses to do something with the earth; not as we have to do with the earth here; no, no. A glorious light shone all about their heads, and they were continually shouting and offering praises to God. {EW 17.3}

Ellen G. White is given a special vantage point here: standing on the earth outside the Holy City. First of all, we must realize that the outer walls of the pyramid must be transparent, otherwise the messenger would not have been able to look in and see the saints at work. This is also stated in the Bible, as John had a viewpoint very similar to that which Ellen G. White later had:

And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; (Revelation 21:10-11)

The Greek word “krustallizo” for “crystal clear” also means “transparent like glass,” which means that we can see through the outer walls of the pyramid, which both prophets proceed to do and give a more detailed description of its interior.[2]

If we look at the outer faces of the pyramid as transparent glass walls to shield its inner life from the hostile vacuum of space, then we learn of 12 bases that the prophets saw, and not 12 “foundations.” Let’s look at the model:

Twelve FoundationsWe can see that the entire structure of the Holy City is divided into 12 bases: there are 2 sides of each of the 4 triangles (that’s 8 so far) and the quadrants into which the triangles divide the square base (4), which is a total of 12 surfaces. And then I realized that I was finding the answer to my question about the number of “decks” in the ship: There are only 12 surfaces with 4 huge “airspaces” between the pillars!

Now, someone might find this impossible, because if we remember that Ellen G. White said she saw the saints’ fields and houses there, and does not mention a single skyscraper with thousands of windows or balconies, we must assume that the areas are largely covered with landmass, and then each area must have its own gravity source, otherwise the people who live on the triangles would fall down to the squares of the base.

Perhaps someone might argue that the Holy City flies in space, and there is no gravity at all, which would allow for life on any surface at any angle. I would like to counter that Ellen G. White saw the saints “go out of the houses” and then they did their “pleasant work.” She does not speak of “flying” or “floating” in this context. And when the Holy City lands on the earth after the millennium, then the earth’s gravity would make life on the triangles extremely difficult. No, what we have here is an important clue about God’s “technology,” for which the arbitrary generation of gravity in any direction seems to pose no difficulty. The mastery of gravity must be a feature of God’s Kingdom!

Have we also gotten an answer to the question of whether we will have wings or not, since Ellen G. White saw the children flying with their wings?

Mount Zion was just before us, and on the mount was a glorious temple, and about it were seven other mountains, on which grew roses and lilies. And I saw the little ones climb, or, if they chose, use their little wings and fly, to the top of the mountains and pluck the never-fading flowers. {EW 18.2}

Ernie Knoll once boldly asked the angel Gabriel if his wings were symbolic. He then got the answer that he would soon know, if he remained faithful to his Redeemer.[3] He did not, but we will know the answer after reading this testimony.

At this point, I can only tell you that theoretically, it would be quite possible that we only would have to push off the surface of one platform to “fly” to the platform 90° adjacent; we would just have to aim well. Everything would depend on how strong the gravity of each individual platform would be, and whether or not weightlessness prevails between them through mutual cancellation of the gravity fields. Or perhaps we would even have small antigravity devices like in the science fiction novels, and can control our flight? But Ellen G. White saw the children flying above a planet’s surface, even outside of the Holy City, and we have greater challenges to explain that. Note well the small but numerous contradictions!

But how big is the footprint of all 12 foundations, taken together?

The area of one triangle face is calculated as [mathematical formula]; that is ½ × 2218 km ÷ 2 × 1,920.844 km (height h, or d4 determined from the dodecagon calculator with d6 being 2218 km) or simplified to 2218 km × 1,920.844 km ÷ 4 = 1,065,108 km2. We have 8 such triangular surfaces with more than one million square kilometers, which is 8 × 1,065,108 km2 = 8,520,864 km2.

The 4 squares are a single large square with a 2218 km edge length, i.e. 2218 km × 2218 km = 4,919,524 km2. Each of the four base squares have an area of 4,919,524 km2 ÷ 4 = 1,229,881 km2, thus slightly larger than one of the triangular faces. However, it is certainly fair in the Holy City, and each of the twelve tribes will probably be given exactly the same amount of space!?

The living space on the pyramid’s main areas could be slightly diminished by the town square, which seems to be described in the following verse without any further indication of size:

In the midst of the street [actually town square] of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:2)

If we include the town square, we get a grand total for all 12 foundations: 8,520,864 km2 + 4,919,524 km2 = 13,440,388 km2. That is the area of the USA (or Canada) and India together.

For whom are these areas intended?

Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. (Revelation 3:12)

Ellen G. White seems to point out that only the 144,000, namely the people of Philadelphia, and perhaps a select few others, will have the right to reside in the Holy City forever and visit other worlds with Jesus:

The Lord has given me a view of other worlds. Wings were given me, and an angel attended me from the city to a place that was bright and glorious. The grass of the place was living green, and the birds there warbled a sweet song. The inhabitants of the place were of all sizes; they were noble, majestic, and lovely. They bore the express image of Jesus, and their countenances beamed with holy joy, expressive of the freedom and happiness of the place. I asked one of them why they were so much more lovely than those on the earth. The reply was, “We have lived in strict obedience to the commandments of God, and have not fallen by disobedience, like those on the earth.” Then I saw two trees, one looked much like the tree of life in the city. The fruit of both looked beautiful, but of one they could not eat. They had power to eat of both, but were forbidden to eat of one. Then my attending angel said to me, “None in this place have tasted of the forbidden tree; but if they should eat, they would fall.” Then I was taken to a world which had seven moons. There I saw good old Enoch, who had been translated. On his right arm he bore a glorious palm, and on each leaf was written “Victory.” Around his head was a dazzling white wreath, and leaves on the wreath, and in the middle of each leaf was written “Purity,” and around the wreath were stones of various colors, that shone brighter than the stars, and cast a reflection upon the letters and magnified them. On the back part of his head was a bow that confined the wreath, and upon the bow was written “Holiness.” Above the wreath was a lovely crown that shone brighter than the sun. I asked him if this was the place he was taken to from the earth. He said, “It is not; the city is my home, and I have come to visit this place.” He moved about the place as if perfectly at home. I begged of my attending angel to let me remain in that place. I could not bear the thought of coming back to this dark world again. Then the angel said, “You must go back, and if you are faithful, you, with the 144,000, shall have the privilege of visiting all the worlds and viewing the handiwork of God.” {EW 39.3}

Since we can now assume that the 144,000 saints will live on the 12 surfaces of the “wall” since they never leave the spaceship, a rough estimate shows that the lots of the 12,000 saints on one of the slightly smaller triangular faces of 1,065,108 km2 each will already have an area exceeding 88 km2 (34 square miles). That is a square plot of land with an edge length of almost 9.5 km (5.9 miles)—enough to grow a magnificent garden and to go horseback riding! The silver houses that Ellen G. White was permitted to see certainly have plenty of room there.

Excited? Sleep on it for a night or two and let it settle in. Our faces were shining only for a short while.

The Hollow Wall

Read the following verse once again:

And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation 21:14)

We know now what the foundations are, but what is the wall? If we understand the “foundations” as the main-level surfaces of the four triangles and four squares, then we see that they naturally have to rest upon some basis: the edge thickness of the triangles or squares themselves. Now can you see why the wall with a “height” of 144 cubits[4] “had” or carried the foundations?

Foundation Walls

Inside this wall must be the actual technical part of the Holy City: the propulsion systems, the power generators, the gravity generators, the cabins for the crew of angels, the life support systems such as air and water treatment, the hangars for the millions of dinghies that take us up from the earth into the cloud and much more... I do not want to go into too much detail here, because we will see later that all of this has a far greater meaning than we can imagine so far, but you cannot bear it yet at this point.[5]

If we also consider that the wall has several decks, it makes our head spin. If we follow the instructions regarding the wall, which I found out in my very first study—even before I was “appointed” to Paraguay—the 144 cubits do not consist of 12 decks of 12 cubits, but 24 decks of 6 cubits each. This is the height of the wall of the temple described by Ezekiel, which was measured by the man of Ezekiel 40:5.

And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and in the man’s hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and an hand breadth: so he measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and the height, one reed. (Ezekiel 40:5)

Six cubits must therefore correspond to the height of one level within the 24-story “wall” of the Holy City. The measurement used here is not the normal biblical cubit, but the so-called royal cubit, since we are told that the measure is one cubit and a hand breadth. In Revelation 21:17, Jesus leaves no doubt that the man of Ezekiel 40 and the angel of Revelation 21 use the same measure:

And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. (Revelation 21:17)

In the Bible commentary, the royal cubit is given as 518.6 mm (20.4 in.) and thus the wall height would be 3.12 m (10.2 ft.). To us, it would feel like being inside a magnificent mansion.

However, Ellen G. White mentioned that the height of the angels, or Adam, is about 4 m (12 ft.), and we would have that height as soon as we would grow up to the stature of the angels. Then we and also those who resurrect in the stature of the antediluvians of the earth, like Adam and Eve, would have to bend down and would feel pretty cramped. Is that the reason why only the 144,000 will travel with Jesus, so they will have enough headroom on the main level?

Or is it like in Ernie Knoll’s dream, which I mentioned earlier?

I watch as the angel, who has stood about the same height as me until now, grows to his normal height, which I believe is about 15 feet tall. {Ernie Knoll, Watch, as I am coming!}

How can that be? One thing should be clear, however: if we become like the angels, then we would have to be able to change our size at will! Nevertheless, the apparent contradiction with the deck height inside the wall should make us think.

So, we have 24 decks per “wall,” although we could imagine that hangars or machinery could span several decks. We’re just approximating, to understand the immensity of the Holy City.

In the triangles, one wall pertains to each of the foundation triangles, and the four squares of the base also have one common wall together. Thus, we reach 24 × (4 × 1,065,108 km2 + 4,919,524 km2) = 220,318,944 km2 for the assumed 24 decks.

If we know that the total land mass of the earth amounts to 149 million km2, of which 101 million km2 are in turn unusable (ice, deserts, unpopulated wildernesses, rivers/lakes, mountains over 2000 m high, forests), then the nearly 8 billion people who are currently living on the earth have 48 million km2 available for living and working space. This corresponds to an area of 6000 m2 (1.5 acres or 65,000 sq. ft.) per person.

If each person had a “cabin” in one of the 24 decks in the wall of the Holy City with that same area, the Holy City could transport more than 36.7 billion people, or beings, in a “wafer-thin” wall with a thickness of about 75 m (24 × 3.12 m), which is nothing in comparison to its huge deck area.

Twelve Foundations

Would there be enough space for the great multitude and the 144,000, who would certainly be housed in cabins during the flight to the sea of glass, the Orion Nebula? Of course, you do have to subtract some from the 6000 m2 surface area, since not all of that area is occupied by cabins, but there would certainly not be 36.7 billion beings on board.

By comparison, the world’s largest luxury suite is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records at 4131 m2 (44,000 sq. ft.), complete with its own spa. That is quite pathetic compared to the “cabins” aboard the divine luxury liner. And I think that with this space and the technology of God, each “cabin” of 6000 m2 will still offer enough space for our private 3D-cinema room, which will provide us with the whole extravaganza of the seven-day journey, “on the house.”

Okay, but for the tribes that are housed in the triangles, it may be a bit “cramped” since only 12 decks are available per tribe. In the squares for the main tribes, on the other hand, there are 24 decks per tribe. Does that mean the 8 “minor tribes” have to settle for ridiculously small cabins of only 3000 m2, or will there be more people redeemed from the four main tribes than from the others?

Ask yourself: isn’t it all a little over the top? Does God want to use these dimensions to show us something else that we have not yet recognized?

The Gates

We know that on each side of the pyramid there are three entrance gates to the Holy City, so one gate for each tribe. If we want to find out which gate is assigned to which tribe, it is natural to assume that the gates could correspond to the Israelite camp order, which we used in the video of the second coming of Jesus.

Unfortunately, the tribes of Revelation 7 differ greatly from this order, making it difficult to assign them to the gates. The listing of tribes in triplets could be an indication of the grouping of each set of three gates. On the other hand, that goes contrary to the fact that the first group begins with Judah and Ruben, both of which are main tribes, and each of them should have a central gate assigned to them if the cardinal directions of the Israelite camps are to be maintained.

There is only one solution that is harmonious and really makes sense, and that is to put the tribes enumerated in Revelation 7 into the order of the Mazzaroth, and then we have a simple and clear rule as to which gate each tribe would enter the Holy City through. Now God would only need to mark the sides of the Holy City with the appropriate celestial direction, and each of us could know where to stand.

The Tribes and their GatesOur date of birth (with place and hour of birth considered in borderline cases) and one look at a planetarium program are enough to find out which tribe we belong to. At the same time, this also defines which entrance gate to the city is ours.

We already made this assignment for all the forum members, because we were of course interested in how the 12 modern apostles or the authors are distributed over the tribes. In particular, we wanted to know whether the names of the apostles of the Lamb, which according to Revelation 21:14[6] are written on each of the 12 foundations of the Holy City, are to be understood symbolically as the names of the new apostles or whether they are really the names of the apostles from the time of Christ.

The clear result is that we are so unevenly distributed among the tribes that it rules out the possibility that the names are those of the new apostles. It must indeed be the names of the old disciples of Jesus, who were privileged to walk with Him here on the earth for three and a half years.

Anyone who isn’t sure about his or her tribal affiliation may ask us, but we will not list who belongs with each tribe for privacy reasons. We make an exception with the four authors, however, because their tribal affiliation solves a great divine mystery: the mystery of Daniel 11.

But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. (Daniel 11:44)

Time and again in articles I have ventured to decipher this mystery. Generally, one understands the “rumors” as coming from the east (rising of the sun) and the north (the throne of God in the celestial north), making the king of the north (Pope Francis) so angry that he really begins the final end-time persecution. We have also often replaced the east with Orion, but today we know better, because he stands in front of the bull, which God assigns to the heavenly west through the layout of the Israelite camp.

Now let’s look at which tribes the authors of the Two Witnesses belong to:

I myself belong to the tribe of Joseph, since I was born on August 6, and I am granted to enter on the east side of the pyramid, next to the middle tribe of Judah.

Brother Robert’s gate is also in the east, on the other side of the tribe of Judah, because he belongs to the tribe of Asher.

Brother Gerhard and Brother Ray both enter the same gate together. It lies on the north side, and is the middle gate of that side. Both are from the tribe of Manasseh, which replaced Dan.

The provocative “rumors” from the east and north are thus the writings of the four authors of the two websites, which we understand to be the two witnesses of Revelation 11. What a confirmation of our view, as well as the arrangement of the gates of the Holy City according to the Mazzaroth.

All the light given in this testimony was given to us over several weeks, and one great milestone was a great shower of light on the Sabbath of January 13, 2018, the second possibility for the feast of dedication. It has probably been the longest phase we’ve ever had in preparation for one article, and also the most intense. I cannot remember that we ever had such lively discussions on any topic and had to bring so many apparent contradictions into harmony. Those who have studied these things themselves will have encountered many difficulties, and yet... the perfect solution exists for everything, but the Spirit of God must help.

What we did not know at the time was that even this light was still only the beginning, and that the shedding of light was intensifying toward a specific date: the great eighth anniversary of the Orion message on January 23, 2018. More on that in the “red pill” part.

Heads or Tails

We now know that the wall of the city is 75 m high, and now the question arises, how could Ellen G. White or the apostle John have looked into the city and said that it has 12 foundations? The pyramidal city must have been in an orientation that allowed this insight.

Imagine a pyramid with a side length of 2218 km and an equal slant height. Its base area is 2218 km × 2218 km = just under 5 million km2—that’s half the area of the US, Canada or China, or twice the size of Argentina!

Would a God who was reluctant to raze Nineveh to the ground because there were many animals in it[7] destroy an area the size of half a continent, with all life upon it, just to land His City on the earth? How many people would die before they could even hear their final verdict, after the millennium?

Just the reverberations of a 5 million km2 “moon” gently touching down on the earth would cause such a large earthquake that it would tear up the planet. Although most of the Holy City has to be in outer space, it would never be able to rest on any planet with its square footprint without causing the greatest of devastation. That would not be a visit to a foreign world, but its destruction.

But the solution to the problem has already been described by Ellen G. White. Jesus, who of course provides the “light” for the city together with the Father at the top of the pyramid, first comes down, and under His weight the mountain divides. However, Jesus is still human, and thus—even if He will be four meters tall—still does not have enough weight to flatten a whole mountain. It is a picture, and of course it means that the top of the pyramid points down when the divine spacecraft makes its landing, not its huge base, as in the Egyptian imitations.

That would leave an even larger part of the pyramidal ship in space, and the least possible damage, if any, would be inflicted on a host planet. A barren, flattened mountain would be enough for a spaceport. This also gives us a concept of the size of the flat top of the pyramid, which is where God’s throne room is located—facing the inside, of course, and standing as another main level upon its own wall.

Flat-Tipped Pyramid

How much area will the naturally square “tip” of the Holy City occupy?

Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (Zechariah 14:3-4)

We know where the Mount of Olives is located, and the text clearly describes it as the center of the mountain, splitting to the east, west, north and south. Is there any clue somewhere that describes the extent of it? Yes, right in the next verse:

And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. (Zechariah 14:5)

If we knew where Azal were, we would have found the solution to the question of the landing area of the pyramid of God. Unfortunately, however, the Bible Commentary is unsure again:

Azal. Heb. ‘a al. This place cannot be identified. The LXX reads Iasol, probably to be identified with the wadi Ya ul flowing into the Kidron. The reading “the side of it” (RSV) for “Azal” requires the addition of the suffix w, “of it,” in the Hebrew. The Heb. ‘e el means “side.”[8]

If you do a bit of research, you’ll find a very revealing article that offers a logical solution to the long-kept secret. If one follows the indications of this carefully researched report, which is full of archaeological evidence, it can be seen that it is undisputed today that the Wadi Yasûl corresponds to the Nahal Azal, and you can even find and mark that location in Google Maps today. All you have to do is right-click and select measure distance, and you can enter the Mount of Olives as a second location and get a measurement:

Azal Distance

The 2.16 km is an estimate for the apex of the pyramid, as a gentle landing surface for the Holy City. But how do we get an exact value from the estimate?

We should always keep in mind that the measurements of God are made in units other than our modern ones, and that God’s numbers have an important symbolic meaning. We will encounter that even more often throughout the course of this testimony!

We were given the base and height dimensions of the pyramid as 12,000 “furlongs.” The number 12 × 1000 means that through the covenant (12) many (1000) will be saved. And the area of 144,000,000 already includes a reference to the leaders of the great multitude, the 144,000 × 1000 (many). So, what do we get when we convert the 2.16 km, assumed to be half the size of the city, to furlongs?

In the Bible Commentary on Revelation 21:16, one furlong is given as 185 m, thus 2160 m ÷ 185 m = 11.68 furlongs. Rounding up would be 12 furlongs, the perfect number of the divine covenant! It also makes sense that the number is actually slightly larger, since we did not perform the above length measurement exactly on the north-south axis, and the course of the wadi tends toward the south.

If we calculate back, we get 2.2 km as half the diameter of the landing area, with a total diameter of 4.4 km or 24 furlongs, length and width, which together symbolize the Old (12) and New (12) Covenants.

If you look at the historical sites in the landing area, you will notice that the ancient City of David, the Temple Mount, and the sites of Jesus’ suffering and crucifixion fall perfectly in the southwestern quadrant (in terms of earthly directions). Mount Zion is also exactly where Ellen G. White, on her “shore excursion,” later sees the temple with seven pillars, that only the 144,000 can enter!

Historical Quadrant

Upon closer inspection, you might have noticed that the gates of the city cannot be located on the huge base of the pyramid, with its 2218 km edge length, as previously assumed. They must be located on the 75 m high “wall” of the landing area. Later, during the attack of the wicked under Satan’s direction, we are told that the gates are closed, which would certainly not be necessary if they were in outer space at an altitude of about 2000 km.

While Satan was rallying his army, the saints were in the city, beholding the beauty and glory of the Paradise of God. Jesus was at their head, leading them. All at once the lovely Saviour was gone from our company; but soon we heard His lovely voice, saying, “Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” We gathered about Jesus, and just as He closed the gates of the city, the curse was pronounced upon the wicked. The gates were shut. Then the saints used their wings and mounted to the top of the wall of the city. Jesus was also with them; His crown looked brilliant and glorious. It was a crown within a crown, seven in number. The crowns of the saints were of the most pure gold, decked with stars. Their faces shone with glory, for they were in the express image of Jesus; and as they arose and moved all together to the top of the city, I was enraptured with the sight. {EW 53.1}

Now it also becomes clear that the saints use their “wings,” or antigravity units, to “fly” on the triangles that extend up vertically, and the four squares of the main tribes which extend horizontally over them. (If that’s too technical, please bear with me a little.)

I will also go into more detail on how to resolve the apparent contradiction in that Mount Zion would need to be destroyed by the establishing of the Holy City, and yet Ellen G. White can walk right in that area. We will also learn why the gates are spherical pearls.

The Impossible “Perfect Square”

Now it’s time to solve another mystery related to gates and Ellen G. White’s visions.

On each side of the cloudy chariot were wings, and beneath it were living wheels; and as the chariot rolled upward, the wheels cried, “Holy,” and the wings, as they moved, cried, “Holy,” and the retinue of holy angels around the cloud cried, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!” And the saints in the cloud cried, “Glory! Alleluia!” And the chariot rolled upward to the Holy City. Before entering the city, the saints were arranged in a perfect square, with Jesus in the midst. He stood head and shoulders above the saints and above the angels. His majestic form and lovely countenance could be seen by all in the square. {EW 287.2}

Some may have understood this text as meaning they must stand in a square just outside the city. That would have been completely impossible around the large base of the pyramid with an edge length of 2218 km; you would not be able to see Jesus at the top of the pyramid, just as you can’t see the peak from the foot of a mountain or the inside of a city when you’re at the foot of a 75 m high surrounding wall.

Reversing the pyramid to be on its head, of course, changes the picture, because a row of 12,000 people, each one occupying about 80 cm, would be 9.2 km long, which is longer than the 4.4 km of the edge length of the landing area. You could place them in an almost perfect square in front of the symmetrically arranged gates, which would look something like this:

The 144,000 stand in a perfect square

However, this square arrangement is also mentioned in Ellen G. White’s first vision:

We all entered the cloud together, and were seven days ascending to the sea of glass, when Jesus brought the crowns, and with His own right hand placed them on our heads. He gave us harps of gold and palms of victory. Here on the sea of glass the 144,000 stood in a perfect square. Some of them had very bright crowns, others not so bright. Some crowns appeared heavy with stars, while others had but few. All were perfectly satisfied with their crowns. And they were all clothed with a glorious white mantle from their shoulders to their feet. Angels were all about us as we marched over the sea of glass to the gate of the city. Jesus raised His mighty, glorious arm, laid hold of the pearly gate, swung it back on its glittering hinges, and said to us, “You have washed your robes in My blood, stood stiffly for My truth, enter in.” We all marched in and felt that we had a perfect right in the city. {EW 16.2}

So, it’s not about arranging the 144,000 around the city, but about the coronation ceremony, which is apparently held before marching to the gates of the city and takes place directly on the cloud of the Orion Nebula. Later, we will want to solve how it is possible for us to travel to the sea of glass on a cloud for seven days, and then be there in a vacuum without suffocating. So far, we understood the vision purely symbolically and assumed that we would travel to the Orion Nebula in the Holy City.

But for now, we just want to work on how the 12 rows of 12,000 people each can be arranged in the shape of a perfect square. We do not understand what Ernie Knoll saw, because in his dream about our journey home, he described an impossible square:

The second group stands in a perfect square, side by side in 12 rows with each row consisting of 12,000. These rows total exactly 144,000 in number—these who are they. Just before Christ returns, this group will stand in unity. They will show by their example that God’s laws can be kept. They will be without sin when they no longer have Christ as their Mediator.

You can arrange the 9.2 km long rows in a single level, standing side by side however you like, but it will never make a perfect square unless you have 800 m of space between the rows. Maybe you are more in agreement with the following solution.

The 144,000 stand in a perfect cube?A square would be an area. If we add one dimension, the third, and expand the perfect square to a cube of 12,000, we have far less trouble placing the 12 rows perfectly evenly, side by side.

Now we have a configuration of the 12 rows that would be conceivable in the weightlessness of space: on each face of the cube there would be four rows. And on the top (and of course also at all the other positions of the rows of 12,000) they form a perfect square. Now, it also makes some sense for Ellen G. White to say that Jesus stands in their midst, head and shoulders above the saints and angels. Everyone in the cube can see Him from their position, but many only see His feet. Something is still wrong. There must be a solution to this puzzle, but what could a model look like that reflects all the details that are described?

The Mystery of the Jewels

Revelation 21:18 teaches that the outer walls of the pyramidal City are transparent, but there is also the surface of the wall, which now has many more than four exterior sides, and they are all decorated with jasper:

Of Jasper

And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. (Revelation 21:18)

Jasper is a semiprecious gemstone that can be polished to shine beautifully, and whose dark red is strongly reminiscent of the color of blood. The blackish deposits separate the blood into individual drops of blood. The intersecting planes of the wall could also point to the cross of Jesus. Soon you will learn that the “wall” actually forms a special cross. But that’s for later.

So it is no wonder that in the following enumeration of the gemstones that adorn the surfaces of each of the 12 tribes, jasper is the first, because the counting of the tribes begins with the house of Judah, which we know Jesus came from.

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. (Revelation 21:19-20)

One day during the long weeks of study, I asked around the room, “What about the gems? Which tribe could each gemstone belong to?” After one day, I asked again if anyone had found an answer. Some had tried to analyze the breast plate of the high priest of the Old Testament—who also wore 12 gemstones to symbolize each of the tribes—and thus to determine a method of assignment.

The difficulty was that for the most part, the Old Testament uses different gemstones for the tribes, or varieties that are scarcely known today. As a result, it is no longer possible to clearly determine what kind of gemstone the Bible text could have been referring to. The brethren were obviously disappointed, as the old gemstones did not even match the new ones in Revelation.

But we know that the sequence of the tribes begins with Judah, and that his stone, the red jasper, makes a logical beginning. So now, following the course of the sun in the Mazzaroth, suppose that the enumeration of the stones in Revelation 21 corresponds—or does the Word of God give us clues that we should follow a different order?

Where do gemstones come from? Although they sparkle in the sunlight, they come from the mountains, where they are created under pressure or by other chemical processes over millennia. We have learned that the constellations of the heavens are mountains, and that the ages follow the movement of the vernal point, opposite the direction of the sun. Nothing in the Word of God is vain, and we can apply our most recent knowledge confidently.

Tribe GemstonesNow, starting with the vernal point in Leo, we can easily assign the individual gemstones to the tribes. But in order to bring out the teaching that Christ wants to convey to us, a person must select the correct color of the gemstones, some of which may offer a whole palette of choices. I already recognized, however, what God wanted to show us with the gemstones, which have clear colors, and I can now give you the sequence with all the stones in their correct color hues. Can you see a principle in this list?

Joseph Sapphire Sapphire

Naphtali Emerald Emerald

Sardius
Reuben Chrysolite
(Peridot)
Chrysolite
Benjamin Beryl Beryl
Gad Topaz Topaz
Manasseh Chrysoprase Chrysoprase
Levi Jacinth

Asher Amethyst Amethyst

Just speak out the main colors in the list, one after the other, and then you will surely recognize that the three main colors, red–green–blue, repeat themselves in different combinations four times in succession! What does that mean? To find out, we go to the Holy City and assign the gems to the entrance gates of the tribes according to the order of the vernal equinox.

Remember that we already recognized that the four large squares that now represent the upper end of the pyramid must logically belong to the four main tribes with the unusually arranged directions, while the eight surfaces of the four triangles serve as a dwelling for the other tribes. Since we were able to assign the gates to the tribes with the help of the Mazzaroth already, any middle gate of a side must inevitably lead upward to one of the squares, and the adjacent gates go to the nearest triangular surface that extends vertically upward, it can already be clearly determined which triangle each minor tribe is on.

With the squares, however, we have the difficulty of deciding whether the middle gate goes to the left or right square. Imagine that you are standing on the “east” side of the pyramid at the foot of the wall and see three entrance gates in front of you, labeled as follows: Joseph – Judah – Asher.

When you enter Joseph, you are in one of the four huge “halls” that are separated by the four large triangles. Your triangle is on the right and decorated with the same blue gemstone (sapphire) as your gateway so you will not get lost. So, you just fly to the right onto the vertical surface of your triangle and there you are conducted to your home by angels. Likewise, if you enter Asher, you will fly to the triangle to the left of you. It’s also blue, but Asher goes into a different hall, and there can be no confusion if someone does not immediately recognize the difference between sapphire and amethyst.

Judah has to go through the central gate into one of the two halls, but which? Into the left or the right? To answer this question, we first mark all gates with the corresponding colors, red, green and blue. We recognize that every hall must have all three colors, if harmony is to prevail, but three middle gates are green and only one is red—that of Judah. Everything is decided by the three gates of the east side. If Judah goes to the right hall, we would have a color combination of blue (Asher), red (Levi), and red (Judah); there would be no harmony, and if you were to look into the Holy City, you would see two of the same color in one quadrant or hall.

If Judah goes to the left, full harmony is the immediate result for all of the other halls. We start with Judah and follow the vernal equinox around the Holy City:

HallMiddle Gate (Square)Triangle at RightTriangle at Left
1 Red (Judah) Blue (Joseph) Green (Simeon)
2 Green (Naphtali) Blue (Issachar) Red (Zebulun)
3 Green (Reuben) Red (Benjamin) Blue (Gad)
4 Green (Manasseh) Red (Levi) Blue (Asher)

Have you grasped how Judah is honored in the four ceiling squares, as the only main tribe repeating the blood-red color of the wall? All other squares are green. Could there be another reason for this?

Night Pyramid LandingSo far, it has been impossible for us to say clearly how the Holy City will align during its landing on the earth, because the heavenly compass directions of the Holy City are highly confusing, and their order and arrangement are not earthly. The north lies to the west, and the south to the east. No matter how we turn the Holy City and try to align at least one of the heavenly compass directions with an earthly one, we find again and again that the other three do not come into place.

The solution to the problem lies in the map of the “foyer” and the red quadrant of Judah. As we have already seen, the Holy City will land on the site of the special work and sacrifice of Christ. Which quadrant will the Temple Mount, Mt. Zion, the (supposed) tomb of Jesus in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and also the most likely location of Mt. Calvary lie in? All these sites are located in the (earthly) southwest or lower left quadrant of the map.

So the Holy City will align its “east” with the earthly south so that the square of the tribe of Judah, which Jesus comes from, will coincide with the quadrant of the venue of His Passion. The hermeneutical principle is: “As above, so below, or, as below, so above.”

The Awakening

Isn’t it wonderful that we already know about our new home for the millennium? Are you happy to know now which precious or semiprecious stone will decorate your entrance gate and “foundation” and on which surface or in which wall of the Holy City you will live luxuriously? Do you realize that even on the New Earth a huge estate awaits you, which you can design according to your desires, and that it will not happen “by the sweat of your brow” but “in a pleasant way”?

Anyone who is satisfied with this has the option of ending his or her reading of this testimony, which amounts to swallowing the blue pill. However, those who are willing to think more deeply about what God really wants to tell us with all these many details can take the red pill again.[9]

Be aware that swallowing the red pill could hit many in the stomach! That’s why I want to say to everyone here who is content with what we have experienced so far—who can imagine and like Jesus as a spaceship captain with whom we travel from world to world on the Sabbaths of eternity in the giant pyramidal spaceship “New Jerusalem” (at least the 144,000 and a few chosen ones like Ellen G. White) and otherwise do gardening at their country homes on the New Earth—goodbye from the bottom of my heart, with the kiss of the brotherly love of Philadelphia until we meet again in the cloud!

Be much assured: great things await you in the Kingdom of God, and no one will ever be bored there, even in all eternity. God’s promise, delivered by Ellen G. White, will become a reality:

All the treasures of the universe will be open to the study of God’s redeemed. Unfettered by mortality, they wing their tireless flight to worlds afar—worlds that thrilled with sorrow at the spectacle of human woe and rang with songs of gladness at the tidings of a ransomed soul. With unutterable delight the children of earth enter into the joy and the wisdom of unfallen beings. They share the treasures of knowledge and understanding gained through ages upon ages in contemplation of God’s handiwork. With undimmed vision they gaze upon the glory of creation—suns and stars and systems, all in their appointed order circling the throne of Deity. Upon all things, from the least to the greatest, the Creator’s name is written, and in all are the riches of His power displayed. {GC 677.3}

End of the blue pill.

Beginning of the red pill.

Those who want to wake up and truly prepare for life after the “rapture” must be prepared for what the White Cloud Farm team has been going through for many weeks: our brains have been taxed to the point of bursting, and we have been walking a fine line between the two abysses of blasphemy and the esoteric, and we have often run the risk of falling into one “dimensional rift” or the other. But holding on to God’s hand, we were led on and on, safely to a wonderful destination that was completely new to us. Intense prayers and truly physical “birth pains”[10] helped us not to stumble, and we stayed on the path that separates the truth from the lie.

We will have to talk about dimensions, invisible worlds, and parallel universes—things that ordinary people find hard to imagine with their simple minds, and yet God has revealed much about the world that awaits us—so much that at the end of the revelations, we can only fall down and throw our crowns at the feet of Him who redeemed us for the coming life in His Kingdom that no man has ever seen before, and in the true sense of the expression. We will even learn how many new eyes we will get, to be able to look at the wonders of God from the right perspective.

The imagery of swallowing the red or blue pill comes from the famous “Matrix” trilogy, and we will now have to go into a world of ideas that not everyone will immediately like. In that movie, human life on earth as we know it is just a computer simulation. In reality, people are lying in incubators, and their brains are being fooled by a supercomputer (the Matrix) into experiencing a “rosy world” where they work and live with their friends and families. They have no idea of their true existence as “dreamers.” They are deceived, exploited, and abused, as enslaved energy suppliers against their own will, by intelligent machines who conquered the world untold years before. “Neo,” the prophesied savior, then “redeems” people from this nightmare and brings them back to reality, ultimately destroying the matrix and the machines with his sacrificial death. His antagonist, in the vast revolt of humanity, is an agent who plays the role of “Satan” and who desperately wants to maintain the matrix. In doing so, he can multiply himself arbitrarily and appear invincible, until good and evil merge forever. In the film, whoever swallows the blue pill will learn nothing of the terrible truth and may continue dreaming, but whoever accepts the red pill learns the truth, even if it is unimaginable.

We will soon be able to distinguish the lies from the truth in this film. This clearly satanic production contains some of both. I can promise one thing: we are not slaves and we are not exploited by any higher being, be it an angel or God, and “Neo” is not our Savior, but Jesus Christ. But much of what we thought we understood so far about our world, we must throw overboard and make room for a far greater reality.

As Daniel already said, the scientific knowledge of humanity would increase, and much that was revealed was to be kept under wraps until the people of the end times would be ready to grasp things with their mind that the prophet, or later the disciples of Jesus, could not “bear.”

However:

In the future life we shall understand things that here greatly perplex us. We shall realize how strong a helper we had and how angels of God were commissioned to guard us as we followed the counsel of the Word of God.—In Heavenly Places, 257. {TA 301.2}

And:

“What awaits you is so inconceivable that even the angels would like to know more about it.” 1 Peter 1:12.[11]

We religious people will soon find that God’s Word contains far more scientific revelations than we might normally imagine. The plan of the Holy City has already been pointed out. Unfortunately, our brains are trained to imagine the Kingdom of God as spiritual clouds on which we will sit and play the harp, because some prophecies use that imagery. But these images stay just what they are: images or symbols of a reality that only the people of the end times can begin to grasp.

Take for example the red-green-blue marking of the huge sides of the four halls of the pyramid, and instead of red-green-blue, write the common abbreviation RGB. The end-time Neanderthal man immediately notices that it symbolizes a current common method of color representation, namely the display on all our modern mobile phones, PCs and TV screens. They are all RGB monitors of various sizes, representing up to 16.7 million colors per pixel from the three primary colors. Almost everyone knows that the more pixels you have, the better the picture becomes, and of course, the more color pixels there are, the more display area you can create. Recently, you’ve been able to admire HD 4K displays, which can show an extremely sharp picture over a huge area.

Red-Green-Blue Picture Elements

Each pixel consists of three tiny bars (LEDs), each of which emits red, green, or blue in different intensities. Our eye or brain blends them into one of the millions of possible colors.

So far, however, we have been speaking only of the representation of images in two dimensions, which is the usual representation on our screens. In the cinema, however, we can already see three-dimensional films, which we know as 3D movies. There are a variety of methods for displaying 3D movies, all of which have one thing in mind: to trick the human eye and brain and fool it into seeing a three-dimensional world that does not exist.

It is well known that we have to wear glasses in a 3D cinema, which take the 50 (or more) images that the film delivers per second and split them for the left and right eyes. The truth is, two films are running at the same time: one shot at an angle for the left eye, and one for the right eye. That is done by pretty simple 3D cameras with two lenses and two recording tracks. The real trick is the glasses in the cinema, which are synchronized with the film so that the correct images reach the corresponding eye. Nice—but when you take off the glasses, the fun is over. Then you just see a slightly doubled and blurred image of the film that is far less interesting than any 2D movie.

Look at the background of the scene shown in 3D in the cinema. Immediately you will notice that it is out of focus, and as much as you might try to focus on it, it will not be sharpened by your eyes. It’s just a pretended 3D world, which is not a real one, but just consists of two normal film shots in 2D. There is no depth of field.

The next step in holography, which is the technical term for 3D imaging, would be a true 3D representation with depth of field. There have been initial attempts to achieve it with the help of four “screens” and four simultaneously running movies. Take a look at this:

Amazing! Personally, I did not know of this yet, and when I saw it, a chill went up my back: it’s easy to see that the “Holy City” has the exact design features of a mobile phone 3D screen!

Hologram on a Mobile Phone

The four transparent walls are the projection surfaces of the four movies. Pay attention to the dimensions! Length (x) = width (x) = slant height (x), and from this something is cut off again like our pyramid, which sits on an area of 24 × 24 furlongs. The little pyramid is also placed with its tip down on the screen so the fun can begin.

“But the four movies are playing outside, on the phone’s surface!”, someone might object. This is where the advanced technology of God enters the equation, and the (presumably) many gems decorating the surface, which are divided into the colors red, green, and blue.

Modern science is working on methods of creating real holograms with laser light. A laser beam is created when a strong light source is refracted and focused through a gemstone like a prism. Emeralds are often used, producing green laser beams, or rubies, which emit the typical red laser light. Of course, you can also use other gems to filter and combine other colors.

The Holy City has four huge “halls,” each surrounded by two triangular sections of two transparent walls. It is perfectly conceivable that Jesus, who is the “light” at the apex of the pyramid pointing downwards, would illuminate the gems and then create laser light in the colors red, green, and blue, which in turn give the impression of a three-dimensional projection through the transparent surfaces of the outer walls of the pyramid.

And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. (Revelation 21:23)

Does the thought now come to you—like it did me—that a prophetess speaks to us of a scene that mentions the Holy City and a special feature film? Read carefully, and apply the knowledge we now have:

By command of Jesus, the gates of the New Jerusalem are closed, and the armies of Satan surround the city and make ready for the onset. {GC 664.3}

Now Christ again appears to the view of His enemies. Far above the city, upon a foundation of burnished gold, is a throne, high and lifted up. Upon this throne sits the Son of God, and around Him are the subjects of His kingdom. The power and majesty of Christ no language can describe, no pen portray. The glory of the Eternal Father is enshrouding His Son. The brightness of His presence fills the City of God, and flows out beyond the gates, flooding the whole earth with its radiance. {GC 665.1}

Imagine the Holy City standing with its tip on the ground. Unimaginably large screens extend out above a spectator on the surface of the earth, making it impossible to see the square base which is far into space. But if these were holographic screens, then the puzzle would be solved. Any vision in the Holy City, or presentation of any 3D scene through the projectors of the Holy City, would now be possible! Think of the images of the little holographic pyramid on the mobile phone surface. The transparent wall surfaces of the pyramid would not be perceived by the inhabitants of the earth, but only what they present in three-dimensional form through the technique of the underlying projection halls.

This 3D holographic technique with the inverted pyramid is also capable of an apparent projection of the scene, which in the example video is located inside the pyramid, on the outside! Try it once and turn your holographic phone pyramid over and let the four pictures be inside. The (fourfold) movie now appears outside the projection screens. Basically, a person could also imagine that the popular 3D cinema effects, where an arrow seems to be flying directly into the individual viewer’s face, or a monster reaches out to catch it, is even easy to accomplish with a 3D pyramid. In truth, the origination of the four movies in the four halls hints at this, and the wicked who see these scenes will be unable to distinguish reality from the projection. What terror must grip them, when they are shown the life of Jesus on a screen with an (apparent) diagonal of 2218 km!?

Above the throne is revealed the cross; and like a panoramic view [3D] appear the scenes of Adam’s temptation and fall, and the successive steps in the great plan of redemption. The Saviour’s lowly birth; His early life of simplicity and obedience; His baptism in Jordan; the fast and temptation in the wilderness; His public ministry, unfolding to men heaven’s most precious blessings; the days crowded with deeds of love and mercy, the nights of prayer and watching in the solitude of the mountains; the plottings of envy, hate, and malice which repaid His benefits; the awful, mysterious agony in Gethsemane beneath the crushing weight of the sins of the whole world; His betrayal into the hands of the murderous mob; the fearful events of that night of horror—the unresisting prisoner, forsaken by His best-loved disciples, rudely hurried through the streets of Jerusalem; the Son of God exultingly displayed before Annas, arraigned in the high priest’s palace, in the judgment hall of Pilate, before the cowardly and cruel Herod, mocked, insulted, tortured, and condemned to die—all are vividly portrayed. {GC 666.3}

If we look at the dimensions of the Holy City and imagine how the billions of resurrected wicked people are attacking it, then it would not make sense to run a single 3D depiction of Jesus’ life, with some of them seeing it only from the side or even from behind. That would be one possible explanation for why there are four holographic projection regions towering over the people. Whether viewed from the north, west, south or east, they would see the same movie in the correct 3D perspective.

Another scene seems to describe a similar spectacle in the sky.

While these words of holy trust ascend to God, the clouds sweep back, and the starry heavens are seen, unspeakably glorious in contrast with the black and angry firmament on either side. The glory of the celestial city streams from the gates ajar. Then there appears against the sky a hand holding two tables of stone folded together. Says the prophet: “The heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God is judge Himself.” Psalm 50:6. That holy law, God’s righteousness, that amid thunder and flame was proclaimed from Sinai as the guide of life, is now revealed to men as the rule of judgment. The hand opens the tables, and there are seen the precepts of the Decalogue, traced as with a pen of fire. The words are so plain that all can read them. Memory is aroused, the darkness of superstition and heresy is swept from every mind, and God’s ten words, brief, comprehensive, and authoritative, are presented to the view of all the inhabitants of the earth. {GC 639.1}

A 2000 km hand, or four of them, will already be making it clear to people at the imminent second coming, that they have joined the wrong side. God is not mocked, but He will scoff at the transgressors in 3D.

God’s “Project Blue Beam”

In reality, I could have assigned the last section to the blue pill, but whoever thinks ahead will feel the same anxiety that came over us, as we slept a night over the seemingly wonderful revelations, and came together again the next day for lunch at the Quincho on the farm. I was not the only one queasy in the stomach, but all my friends, too. Their faces did not shine as one might expect after God had initiated us into the deepest depths of the blueprint of his oversized movie projector.

The problem is the disillusionment that comes when the expectation of displaying God’s omnipotence is suddenly transformed into a fairly easy-to-imagine laser show that could soon take place in almost any modern nightclub or cinema, as scientists develop holographic technology. Disneyland a la God? Is God the Father the heavenly George Lucas, and the Holy Spirit a screenwriter like Stanley Kubrick?

Ellen G. White was permitted to describe incredibly impressive scenes, but now if a person should say that all this is demonstrable with just one or four huge 3D projectors, wouldn’t that be robbing the religious soul of faith in the true omnipotence of God?

If one thinks further, what comes to mind is Project Blue Beam, for years represented as a conspiracy theory, where human scientists supposedly secretly work on developing laser projectors that can conjure up any 3D image in the sky. Rumors abound that it is to counterfeit the return of Jesus. Please take a look at these videos…

Hologram of Jesus

It also reminds me of the dream that my first helper, Erik, sent me late in 2010, shortly before he died. In it, he saw good and evil angels in the sky battling for supremacy. An earthly scientist stated during a TV interview that he just needed to solve one problem to complete his holographic machine.

The problem with all these artificial holographic productions is that they use a lot of fog and haze as the projection surface, as in the videos above with the pyramids or the city in the sky. As soon as the haze dissipates, the picture disappears. Such projection devices already exist.

However, if what you see in the following videos is actually feasible, there would not be much to preclude a counterfeit second coming:

I could not verify whether these videos are themselves fake—the commenters on the first claim it is, and to me, it already looks much too realistic to be real. Nevertheless, we can be sure that humanity would soon be able to create similarly amazing 3D worlds, if this world could continue unchecked. Then we would hardly be able to distinguish reality from projection, and Satan’s machinations would be limitless. Then he would also be able to fake the second coming, but we know that he cannot do that, and therefore the true second coming must come soon:

And, furthermore, Satan is not permitted to counterfeit the manner of Christ’s advent. The Saviour has warned His people against deception upon this point, and has clearly foretold the manner of His second coming. “There shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.... Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth; behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:24-27, 31; 25:31; Revelation 1:7; 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17. This coming there is no possibility of counterfeiting. It will be universally known—witnessed by the whole world. {GC 625.2}

To the projections that Ellen G. White saw of the cross over the city, the movie of Jesus, or the hand that unfolds the tables of the Ten Commandments, all this knowledge is disenchanting and seems to rob them of their power. God’s people shouldn’t be too frightened by heavenly apparitions when their Lord comes to their aid in their greatest hour of need. We will understand the reality behind these wonderful apparitions, and our joy over Jesus’ return will not be dampened by a fear of projections.

Thinking a step further, the red pill may be even more bitter for some. When Jesus comes again, we will be standing on the threshold of a world, of which it is said that we will see things there that no human eye has ever seen. Could it be that God wants to point us less to the technique behind the divine holographic videos on the “Ellen G. White” channel, and more to something quite different—something completely unthinkable?

All the sizes and details of the Holy City seem to bring a person of the end times to understand their function as the living space for the redeemed in a huge spaceship on the one hand, and on the other hand, as one or four oversized laser projectors. What if these things are themselves just symbols? After all, Ellen G. White was a prophet, and the visions she saw must be symbolic.

Furthermore, deciphering a symbol in the Bible can lead us to another symbol. An example would be the star, like a burning lamp, that fell on the waters. We saw the moon burning with Aldebaran, at the location of the confluence of the former rivers of Eden. That place was the city of Khorramshahr, yet that itself was only a symbol for the name of the missile that Iran paraded shortly thereafter. The burning moon is also a symbol for Israel, which has been fueling Iran and poisoning its waters, especially since President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Do you see what I mean? One symbol leads to another symbol. How can we know when we have reached the real thing? Only when God Himself indicates with His word that we have reached the highest level of elucidation.

“Oh, how is that supposed to happen?” You’re probably going to ask. Don’t worry. We wondered that too, and we didn’t yet know that the journey through the symbolic world of God would lead to a happy ending for those who are not afraid to swallow the red pill and continue reading. Don’t give up now!

The Bottomless Pit

We cannot help but consider that the projectors of the Holy City could be a divine illustration, showing that we ourselves—and this includes our entire visible universe—could be only projections. Then we would be in front of the huge lens of an unimaginably large projector, and only on the other side of the lens would God’s reality begin.

Despite unimaginably great efforts of recent decades, no one has succeeded in proving the existence of other life in our solar system or in any other sector of the visible universe. No radio or light signals come to us on the apparently completely abandoned earth. Thousands of exoplanets have been discovered in our home galaxy in recent years, hundreds of them must support life, and in all likelihood even intelligent life, but all attempts at contact have failed. All we find is silence... infinite nothingness... created by the God of love?

Footprint on the MoonBarren boulders, like our moon or others in the solar system, are more evidence of death than of life. The atmosphere of Mars has dissipated, and the water has turned to ice under its monotonous surface, red like that of an old rusty teapot. Scientists’ greatest hope now is to find one or two resistant bacteria strains that have not died of boredom.

Other planets, such as Venus, Mercury, Jupiter or Saturn, are out of the question for supporting life, so we would have to die if we wanted to visit life forms on any of them. Either our own sun would scorch us, or the pressure of the planet’s gravity would smash us like a fly. These are not pretty pictures, and sightseeing trips—like the one where Ellen G. White met Enoch—would be unthinkable.

The only planet that seems to have produced intelligent and abundant life is our blue planet (still blue, so far), which is about to be completely destroyed by the human race. This is a picture that in no way reflects the purity of the universe of our Creator.

The revelation of the Light of the world, Jesus, speaks of Him as being Life itself. Everything He made derives its life from Him, and it is certainly far from Him to create boulders that are only there to one day annihilate, as asteroids or meteors, one of the few planets that carry life. Something is wrong with our “universe,” and even some of today’s scientists notice that. They ask themselves... Are We Living in a Hologram?

In fact, teams have been assembled to find evidence for the frightening reality that has already been symbolically confirmed to us through the projection units of the spaceship New Jerusalem: our entire universe is just a holographic projection.

Does that mean each of us is just a thinking AI program and a laser gem on the surfaces of the “City”? Do the silver houses of the saints, supported by four pillars, mean nothing other than that we are processors on a four-pronged socket on the board of a supercomputer of a Higher Being, which we call “God” because that’s how we were programmed?

No, it doesn’t mean that. Even the scientists agree that we are thinking beings who have free will and actually exist, but in a world that is apparently three-dimensional, although that is not the norm for universes. Something in our universe has been changed so that we are “only” three-dimensional. Their study reveals substantial evidence of a holographic universe, which is not a Matrix world.

When we came across these divine hints, we realized what the big bang really was, that the whole scientific world talks about. Finally, we also understood what God really wants to express by beginning the creation account with saying:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (Genesis 1:1-3)

Ceiling ProjectionLong before the creation of the sun, moon and stars on the fourth day, there was light: the big light bulb of the projector for our universe was turned on. This light was the first act of creation that set everything into motion. After the rebellion broke out in heaven, God created the bottomless pit as a quarantine station for sin.

With eyes wide open in amazement, we now understand even better what the bottomless pit mentioned in the Bible really is. No, it isn’t just our earth, but the entire visible and explorable universe, which is lifeless because it is only an image of a reality that we cannot (yet) see and enter. It does not matter if the earth is flat or spherical; in either case, it remains a projection—just 2D or 3D.

The Central New England camp meeting opened on Thursday evening, August 25. Ellen G. White had tarried at the Sanitarium to be present. The tent was pitched about a mile from the Sanitarium and she spoke five times during the camp meeting. She had to contend with a rather erratic church member who was on a crusade to save Seventh-day Adventists from the belief that the world is round. He sought her support for the flat-earth theory. Her answer was:

I have a message to this people in regard to the life they must live in this world to prepare them for future life which measures with the life of God. We have nought to do with the question whether this world is round or flat.—Manuscript 145, 1904. {5BIO 351.2 – 351.3}

One-third of the angels and their satanic leader were banished to this bottomless pit, which is only a three-dimensional projection of the reality of the higher-dimensional heavenly universe. Only if we have been cleansed by the converting power of Jesus Christ and the acceptance of His sacrifice, will we be transformed at the last day, discarding the corruptible and putting on the incorruptible, to cross the border into the true dimension of our surroundings, as created by God.

We will leave the “black hole” we live in, which separates us from our true dimension and destiny, and the event horizon will open in front of our eyes. As we travel into the Orion Nebula, we will look back and see the black bottomless pit that held us captive until we reached moral maturity through Jesus’ power, to be able to live and work in a pure world. Left behind are the people who loved the hellish bottomless pit more than the truth, dead but kept as holographic records that will be revived as soon as we come back and the grand finale takes place. Satan and his fallen angels know they must wait a millennium for it in the black hole of Hades. Do we also have to wait that long?

Has God revealed more about our true, and certainly even higher, dimension? We examined this question during several weeks of the most intensive study, and have amazing results to report. The universe is very different than what we imagined, and it is also quite different from what most scientists of today present.

The Universe in a Nutshell

When we started to look behind the curtain as a group, we first saw a vast uncharted territory that was hard to probe. When it comes to our visible and explorable universe, there is a tremendous variety of theories for its formation and its dimensionality.

We don’t want to present to you every erroneous path that we investigated; we are now leading you directly to the truth. We can do this because the Revelation to John, and what God shows us in Orion, are revelations of how the universe truly works in its basic structure.

We do not really need to talk about the formation of our bottomless pit, because we already know that God had no problem turning on the “projector,” which took six days to complete. If it goes by the Orion clock, that was only 8.4 seconds in heavenly time; every earthly projector has a longer warm-up time than that.

If we want to know more about the dimensions of our universe, then there is only one scientific theory of some importance: the so-called superstring theory, with its 10 dimensions. You can watch countless videos about it, but just hold onto one thing: superstrings are the new “atoms,” the smallest building blocks of the universe. They are super-small vibrating lines, which have six dimensions that must span from the fifth to the tenth, per the scientists, which is quite plausible. Like atoms, we cannot see them because they are smaller than an electron, but you can explain a lot with them. If a person doesn’t want to listen to God, this theory, however, harbors a lot of unexplained confusion. Soon, you will know how the universe is really built up.

In any case, the fourth dimension brings us to the point where our human imagination comes to an end. Anything beyond three dimensions simply eludes us, because we have neither eyes to see nor legs for mobility in that higher dimension. And worst of all, we do not have a brain suitable for processing such information.

Still, I want to make it easy for you after reviewing hundreds of explanatory videos. No matter what there is to learn about the higher dimensions, there are a few basic things that the scientists all agree on, and that we can later confirm, too:

  1. One of the higher dimensions is time. Across the board, scientists assume that time is the fourth dimension. However, that’s not quite right: God dominates the highest dimension, and God is Time. We agree with the scientists that there must be more than four dimensions, but not that time is the fourth, because we know that time must be the highest of all. It is important to understand that while we live in space with time, i.e. we can measure time and feel it “elapsing,” we have neither eyes to see time, nor “legs” to move in it. So, while we live in a four-dimensional space-time continuum, we can only move in space. Anyone who has ever fallen from a ladder will confirm that even the third dimension is problematic for us, because we have no wings, and such a one would like to turn back time to avoid the painful misstep, but no one has ever done so yet. We are only three-dimensional, though time is noticeable. It is also interesting to note that no serious scientist would deny that the idea of defining time to be the fourth dimension in particular, is purely a matter of definition, and no one can know which dimension number it really is.

  2. All higher dimensions include the lower ones. This is an important point that is quickly overlooked. We will learn much more about moving in the higher dimensions, but there will be a main dimension, which we will primarily live and exist in, and—praise God—it is not entirely so different from our present existence.

  3. All higher dimensions can be constructed geometrically on a sheet of paper by doubling the number of points (or corners) of the previous one. A single point is the zeroth dimension. Two points form a line (1st dimension). Four points can be connected to form a square (2nd dimension, a plane). With eight points, we reach a cube (3rd dimension, a volume). And then we reach the first dimension that we cannot imagine anymore: it would be a doubled cube or a cube in a cube, also called hypercube.

  4. In order to get to the next dimension, we have to imagine something we cannot do in the dimensions we have so far, but which should be possible in the next dimension. The scientists therefore gladly accept the fourth dimension as time, since we all know of time and could imagine traveling in time. We just have to have a means to move in the time dimension. The concept of parallel universes quickly arises, because if we could really travel in time, any change we make in the past would lead to a new course of history, and since we have already experienced the future, only the “creation” of a parallel universe can solve the threatening paradox. There are even 10 dimensions, in fact, so we would be insane if we had to imagine parallel universes as early as the fourth dimension, as many “scientific” explanatory videos teach. However, if we follow divine revelation and understand that God is the highest dimension and Time, then we need not include these parallel universes in our thoughts, which will greatly facilitate further study. But there are parallel spaces that are not to be confused with the parallel universes, and they begin with the fourth dimension and the hypercube.

HypercubeSuch a hypercube of the fourth dimension has incredible properties. Even if we draw just a normal three-dimensional cube on a sheet of paper (projecting it into two dimensions), we have to distort the edges of the cube. Nevertheless, our brain figures it out, and we “see” a cube. In three-dimensional reality, all of its angles are 90° and its edges are all the same length, although on the sheet of paper some are at a 45° angle and appear shorter. In the projection of a three-dimensional cube onto a sheet of paper (two dimensions) information was thus distorted, or has been completely lost, as in the case of the 90° angle.

We can also do it with a hypercube. It is a structure that exists only in the fourth dimension (not time, but another spatial dimension), and whose projection onto the underlying third dimension looks like it does. Actually, we must understand that what we see here is again just a projection of a three-dimensional shadow, cast from this structure that really exists in four dimensions, onto a sheet of paper, resulting in significant information losses and distortions. We are representing a four-dimensional body in two dimensions. Difficult!

A better representation, but unfortunately even more confusing, is a moving hypercube, when you rotate it and project its shadow in the third dimension from all possible sides into the second dimension. Remember, despite the distortion caused by the projection, all of the cubes are the same size, every angle in the fourth dimension is 90°, every edge is the same length, every face has the same area, and all volumes are equal:

4-Dimmensional CrossHow many cubes does the hypercube really have? Did you see how one cube came out of the other, and was “eaten” again? The answer might surprise you. It’s not just two cubes (a cube in a cube). To get to the fourth dimension, we doubled all the points of the three-dimensional cube, and we need to connect both cubes with lines, and that creates six more cubes, which makes eight (!) cubes in total. If these are shown in an alternative representation, a four-dimensional cross is seen! Jesus was indeed crucified in the bottomless pit of the four earthly dimensions—but for the entire universe.

If I were to go into one of the eight 3D cubes, and you into another, we would both be in a different 3D space, even though that space occupies the same place in the four-dimensional continuum of space. Inconceivable? Yes, that is exactly what it should be, otherwise it would not be a new, completely different, dimension.

Have you ever wondered how angels can suddenly appear and disappear, without really understanding where they come from? How can Ellen G. White say that if we had eyes for it, then we would see a great battle between angels around us? How that is possible has already been explained with the above example of the hypercube. The angels are exactly in the same place as we are, but in a higher dimension—just in another one of the eight 3D cubes within the hypercube. They—unlike us—have “eyes” and organs for locomotion in this higher dimension, which allows them not only to see the eight cubes, but also to move from one to another. We are then astonished or frightened when an angel seems to appear from nowhere.

If we wanted to add more dimensions, that would be very simple now. We just double the points of the tesseract (another name for the hypercube) and get a hypercube in the fifth dimension. A doubled 5D hypercube would then be a 6D hypercube, taking us to the sixth dimension.

OK, OK... I know, it’s hard to imagine. Just don’t—you can’t do it any more than I can. Just understand that our brain cannot do it, and keep following my remarks anyway.

I didn’t choose to show examples of the four-dimensional tesseract and the 6D hypercube arbitrarily, but because they represent dimensions that God mentions in His Word. “How is that?”, you will ask. Haven’t you read about beings that have sensory organs and means of locomotion for higher dimensions? Yes, of course—angels!

And we know of two distinct kinds of angels by name: cherubim and seraphim. And we even know a lot more about these angels than just the name of their species. Cherubim have four wings, and seraphim six. Let’s read carefully:

Angels' Wings

And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. (Revelation 4:8)

God reveals to us not only the seraphim’s means of locomotion for a certain number of dimensions, but also that they have “eyes” for every dimension that they have wings for: sensory organs that allow them to see in that dimension, enter it, and to move around in it as safely as we do in a three-dimensional room, because we can see obstacles and objects. They can see backwards and forwards like we can when we turn around; they have perception and can “fly through” the dimension in all directions.

Now God makes it easy for us to answer the question of how many dimensions the world has where such a seraph lives. The answer is: six dimensions, because he has six wings.

You could argue that he also has legs, which would mean that he is three-dimensional and would then have six additional dimensions. That is not so wrong, because there are actually 10 dimensions, but the last three would include totally chaotic states in parallel universes, which is why God limits His creation to beings with six orderly dimensions, and expresses this in His Word. And that is why we find in Scripture that they cover their three-dimensional eyes (face) and legs (feet):

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. (Isaiah 6:1-3)

On the other hand, cherubim sport only four wings:

Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. (Ezekiel 1:5-6)

But they also cover their legs:

Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. (Ezekiel 1:11)

Although they seem to occupy the same position at the throne as the seraphim, the cherubim have no eyes on their wings. However, each of them has four faces and thus four pairs of eyes:

As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle. (Ezekiel 1:10)

Thus, it should be clear that cherubim are supposed to represent four-dimensional beings, while the seraphim is at his home in six dimensions.

Ellen G. White opens to us another intriguing detail in the puzzle:

Satan seems paralyzed as he beholds the glory and majesty of Christ. He who was once a covering cherub remembers whence he has fallen. A shining seraph, “son of the morning;” how changed, how degraded! From the council where once he was honored, he is forever excluded. He sees another now standing near to the Father, veiling His glory. He has seen the crown placed upon the head of Christ by an angel of lofty stature and majestic presence, and he knows that the exalted position of this angel might have been his. {GC 669.1}

If Satan is one person, and he is a cherub and a seraph at the same time, then cherubim and seraphim must both be the same kind of angel, except that they manifest in different dimensions: seraphim have six wings as seen by the prophets (John and Isaiah) observing in the sixth dimension, whereas cherubim have four wings, because Ezekiel saw them in the fourth dimension.

Now it also becomes clear why the normal representation of angels, when they appear in front of people, includes legs and only one pair of wings. They come to us in the third dimension (legs and a face with one pair of eyes), but they are really one 3D cube away from us in the hypercube, which is symbolized by the pair of wings. Now do we know the answer to Ernie Knoll’s question to Gabriel, as to whether the wings are symbolic or real? I’d say: yes.

If angels, the inhabitants of heaven, are six-dimensional beings in their true nature, then the true universe must have six dimensions. We just saw the structure of such a universe—it was an unimaginably complex 6D hypercube. That will be the object of a world we will live in, but now we can imagine it even less. Nevertheless, God is a master of symbolism, and Jesus is the Great Teacher!

Imagine the Unimaginable

Scientists are studying the 10 dimensions in their superstring theory (which is certainly not completely wrong) that they have to adopt because it explains all natural forces and phenomena such as gravity, etc. They jump into a mental trap at the first attempt, because they do not know that God is Time and also that the dimensions are intelligently and consciously controlled.

That is why they come to parallel universes even in the fourth dimension, and since each additional dimension must be constructed on the notion of something unimaginable in the previous dimensions, they invent hypothetical universes that have a completely different origin than ours, which exist in other times and are based on a completely different set of natural laws. Although they see that most of the universes would immediately implode or explode and that infinitely many lives would not be possible because of the infinite disorder, yet they do not know God and therefore do not include Him in their reasoning.

We, on the other hand, know that God is characterized by purity, order and love. The seraphim each have four faces and six wings, which does not add up to the number ten by chance. They have the commandments of God written on their foreheads and in their hearts, which not only makes life possible, but gives immortality and eternal growth to the universe. A God of order does not create disorder, and therefore we can remove from our notion of the true nature of existence an infinite number of parallel universes that exist only in the minds of scientists like Steven Hawking.

God clearly shows us in His Word which dimension He lives in, and to what dimension He limits the creation He ordered, to avoid chaos and death:

And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. (Revelation 4:5)

The many sets of seven in Revelation make it clear what number God regards as the number of perfection and completion: seven. The seventh dimension is time, and it distinguishes our God, who lives in a dimension that is and remains unreached by us, and that is a good thing. However, when the light of God is shed upon a hypercube of time in His seventh dimension, it casts shadows of love upon all of His creatures.

The Living Creatures of Ezekiel's VisionThe cherubim who appeared to Ezekiel had wheels instead of legs. They were the gearwheels of the Orion clock that revealed the heart of God and His Son with His wounds as time. His new name, Alnitak, is the center of time and sacrificial love, and the cherubim move in the seventh dimension of time only at the command of the Son:

Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. (Ezekiel 1:20)

There are no infinite parallel universes with different possibilities for the course of history, as scientists conjecture, because then there would have to be at least one of them where humanity would not have fallen, Jesus would never have died, and a plan of salvation would not be necessary. These thoughts lead to chaos, which cannot exist in the divine order, and therefore does not exist. Only Satan wanted such universes, because then there would be an infinite number in which he would win the great controversy.

Time travel, therefore, is only possible under the control of Him who is Time, and is reserved only for the highest leading angels who are directly aside the throne of God. The four living beings—one of whom is the angel Gabriel, who replaced Lucifer—can perform such time travel at the behest of God; no one else.

But how do we imagine the other three dimensions now, which all the redeemed receive “eyes” and “wings” for? To answer that question, all we have to do is look up again, as Jesus advised us. If we understand that our universe is only a projection, i.e. a three-dimensional shadow of the six-dimensional reality, then we should be able to discover things in the observable universe that explain to us how we should imagine the other dimensions. God wants us to learn from the book of nature, which includes a consideration of the latest results of astronomical research.

All those who look in awe at the stars yearn for eyes like telescopes to be able to take a closer look at them, and they desire a means of transportation to reach those stars and planetary systems. Like how we can fold a sheet of paper to allow a Flatland creature to make a quick transition from one edge of the page to the other, three-dimensional space must be foldable in the next higher dimension to fly to the stars quickly and with almost no loss of time—astronomical distances that could only be traversed in years or decades, limited by the speed of light in our projected universe. If our universe is just a projection, then it quickly becomes clear why we could never travel faster than light here! Think about it.

Wormholes, gravitational sinking around black holes, hyperspace flight, and many other terms were coined by science, pseudo-science, and science-fiction to describe this—unfortunately impossible—cruising speed. It is always about 3D spatial folding, to get from one star to another much faster than with the speed of light.

The stars that we see in the night sky with the naked eye are mostly in our own galaxy—a huge array of about 100 billion stars with their associated planets, which of course we would not be able to see without hi-tech tools like the Hubble Space Telescope. It would be a giant leap for a human being to get there, and science has long known that our universe is actually foldable. It actually happens where there are black holes. Spatial folding requires such high energies, however, that we could never accomplish the leap into the next dimension—the fourth spatial dimension—through technical means. Thus, the limit of our quarantine station is the first three dimensions, and therefore Satan cannot travel this universe any more than we can. Four of his six wings were pulled out, and he can only hide in a three-dimensional cube next to us in the hypercube, so we don’t discover him and his machinations.

This explains the fourth dimension: it is the ability to travel from star to star within our galaxy and visit other planets, as Satan was once allowed to do:

Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord. And the Lord said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. (Job 2:1-2)

Our disc-shaped barred spiral galaxy has a diameter of about 100,000 lightyears and a thickness of about 12,000 lightyears in the middle. Then comes another limit, which most science-fiction authors leave unmentioned: the jump to one of the neighboring galaxies.

Imagine an empty space spanning 2.4 to 2.7 million lightyears! That is the distance that separates us from Andromeda, our nearest neighboring galaxy. At the speed of light, we would travel nearly 3 million years to visit the beings on its fringe, whereas we would reach the nearest star in our home galaxy in “only” four and a half years.

Why did God create such huge empty spaces? We are not the only ones to ask that—astronomers all do, too. We can think spiritually about an answer that a scientist would deny, and the answer is that since the true universe is a six-dimensional space, God has created a three-dimensional image or reflection so that we can understand the dimensional differences. The empty space serves to show us the different levels of travel options, through distances.[12]

That means that if we were able to easily travel within our home galaxy using the fourth dimension, then we could reach other galaxies through the fifth dimension! Can you imagine the fifth dimension better now?

It’s actually quite simple. Let’s say you live in a city, and to get to your workplace, you take some means of public transportation such as the subway or the city bus. That would be a journey within our galaxy. But to get to another city, you would need some other means of transportation: the train or a long-distance coach service. That reflects traveling to different galaxies, of which there are about 2 trillion in the universe.

Just as there are many cities on the earth, located in different countries, modern research shows us that galaxies are arranged in so-called galaxy clusters (about 25 billion in number) and superclusters (about 10 million). That means the next leap to an even higher dimension is needed, because beyond a galaxy cluster comes an even more infinite emptiness. Now we are talking about unimaginable distances that are many billions of lightyears away. While a traveler within a cluster of galaxies a few million lightyears in diameter still manages to travel or fold in the fifth dimension, he would need the sixth dimension to warp space between galaxy clusters and thus move from one to another. That would be like the airplane flight from one country or continent to another.

Galaxy Clusters

Since galaxy clusters are the largest known structures in the observable universe (see above), we have also reached the limit of what God wants to show us in the book of nature. Anyone who has wings for the sixth dimension and below, can travel virtually the entire created universe. That is what God wants to tell us with the six wings of the seraphim.

The Number of Angels

Have we reached a certain level of wisdom after eight years of study in the Orion Message? Then we should be able to solve all the riddles now, whose solutions call for “wisdom” in God’s word. Some time ago, we attempted the number of the beast, which is also a human number, and realized that it indicates Adam’s age of 66 years and 6 months when he fell into sin, together with Eve:

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13:18)

If there is a number for human beings, then there must be a number for angels. How could that be? After reading the chapter above, it won’t be difficult to answer. It is a number that has always been represented in the Orion constellation and the throne room vision.

There are four living creatures around the throne of God, each with six wings. The last living creature has his eagle’s face turned toward us, and has always been identified as the one of the four living creatures that represents Jesus’ dominion as King of Heaven. Heaven is known to be populated by angels. Does that mean there is a single six for heaven’s inhabitants?

No, because the eagle, which is flying with its wings, doesn’t come until the fourth position in the list:

And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. (Revelation 4:7)

If we want a numeric expression for the eagle, which stands for the angelic beings themselves, we would also have to represent the fourth position of the living creature, and write:

6666 = Angel

Now it should be clear what the number of mankind must be. The living being with the “face as a man” is in third position in the list. Thus we write:

666 = Man

Paul also confirmed this:

For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: (Hebrews 2:5-7)

It is not the lion, and not the calf, that are made a little lower than the angels, but man—which is perfectly represented by the above rank number.

No one understood the deeper meaning of the “lower” in the creation rank of “made lower.” It is the absence of the eagle’s wings that characterizes us as humans. Also, we are made up of the smallest things in the world—superstrings—which have six dimensions, so we too are represented by one of the living beings. These “wings,” however, reach up to the tenth dimension of undesired chaos. Therefore, every stage of creation, from the nursing predator, to the dairy animal, to the intelligent human being, has the number six, since everything created consists of the same basic substance. However, we live in a universe with three-dimensional space, and have neither eyes nor locomotion for the fourth, fifth, and sixth dimensions. Only the angels reach that stage of development, as the highest order of creation.

What horror must engulf an angel whose wings have been cropped, and who involuntarily falls into the bottomless pit of three-dimensionality? Imagine the hatred and vengeance of the subjugated one and his fellows, who unload themselves against those on this planet who are to take their former positions of honor!

God’s warning to us humans through the number of the beast, 666, is that we should develop an awareness that fallen angels have taken the form of human beings. Not every person we meet is truly human, but many are fallen angels in disguise, and they longingly remember their true origins. Because people who were created as human beings do not understand the warning for lack of wisdom, they cannot recognize Satan in his human form as Pope Francis.

If people lack wisdom, however, then their number is no longer the first rank number for the intelligent, but that of the calf, which is led to the slaughter unawares. Thus, the unwise person humbles himself even to the number of the ox, 66. Satan manages to turn humans into predators, and to persecute and kill others, which leaves only one six remaining for the leftover material that the unfortunate person was created with. And that, too, soon passes away in the fire of the return of his Creator.

Who will raise us out of the bottomless pit into the world of the winged? It is the incarnate Christ, with whom we may even ascend a little higher than the angels, when we reach the standard of our true home. May God give us wisdom, love, and power to be good leaders of the future world for which we are chosen with our high calling, and to be worthy of the rank number 6666 (4 × 6 = 24 thrones of men), always bearing in our consciousness that we owe everything we are and will be to the One, the 777.

We’ll have to think later about how it was possible for the prophets to see all 12 foundations when the Holy City is surrounded by a high wall that they would have to look over, because they would have only been able to see the pointed triangles and would have had no concept of the four quadrants of the base. However, both clearly say that they saw 12 foundations.

Ernie Knoll, Watch, As I Am Coming! – Standing in the corridor, the angel releases my right hand. I feel a separation that I cannot and do not want to feel. He has held my hand and has been with me through everything I have seen. He steps back and I suddenly have a feeling of unbelievable happiness. I watch as the angel, who has stood about the same height as me until now, grows to his normal height, which I believe is about 15 feet tall. I watch as his wings come out from his back and unfold, unfold, and unfold again and he stretches forth his wings. I notice they are curved and remind me of a hawk. I look up at him and I ask, “Are they real or symbolic?” He smiles and those dimples show even more. He answers, “You are the bold one, aren’t you?” He waves his huge wings one time and is instantly high in the air. He looks at me and says, “If you remain faithful to your Savior, you will find out.” Then he smiles the biggest smile ever.

This is also a characteristic of projection. Imagine you have an old photographic slide that is only a couple of centimeters wide. In the picture, you are standing with your spouse or a friend, with only a centimeter between you on the slide. If you project the image onto a 10-meter high and wide wall with a slide projector, you will be standing a few meters away from the person. Distances in the original are thus far smaller than those in the projection!
