Sei sicuro di quello che dici? Se fosse così vai a chiederlo a qualcuno del monastero perchè ci sono 666 arcate.....vedrai che ti risponderanno
DIO E' UNO E TRINO : 111 X 3 = 333
Why is the New Jerusalem, the City of God, shown as a giant Cube in the Book of Revelation? An angel with a golden measuring rod shows John the City:
"The city lies foursquare, its length the same as its breadth; and [the angel] measured the city with his rod, twelve thousand [units]; its length and breadth and height are equal. He also measured its wall, a hundred and forty-four cubits by a man's measure, that is, an angel's." (Rev 21:16-17)
The City is a giant Cube 12,000 units on a side.
The angel who measures the City is one of the seven angels who have the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues (Rev 21:9); in other words this is a 7-7-7 angel.
The angel carries a measuring rod to measure the city and its gates and walls (Rev21:15). By gematria the number of the 'measuring rod' is 777.
There are three reasons for believing that this is an intentional piece of gematria: 1. The text is about working with numbers to measure the New Jerusalem. 2. The angel is described as a triple 7 angel, one of the seven angels with the seven bowls of the seven last plagues. 3. The number is a number triple like the number of the Beast, 666, and the number of Jesus, 888.
In Solomon's Temple the Holy of Holies, the place where God's presence dwells on earth, had the form of a cubical room. (1 Kings 6:10) The New Jerusalem shares this symbolism--it stands for the reign of God on earth, when every tear shall be wiped away and God's presence will dwell in fullness among us. As such it is shown in the shape of a giant Cube.
The area of one square face of the cubical city is 12,000 units times 12,000 units equal to 144 million square units. The height of the city's wall is 144 cubits.
The Greek gematria for the word 'Jerusalem' is 864. Ignoring all the zeros, the surface area for the Cube of the New Jerusalem is also 864. A cube has six sides: top and bottom plus the four around the middle--front , back, right and left. 144 times 6 sides of the cube = 864.
The text tells us "...by a man's measure, that is, an angel's." (Rev 21:17)
Substituting the secret 777 value of the angel's measure for a man's measure:
144 x 777 = 111,888
111,888 symbolizes both God (111) and Jesus (888), showing the pattern of sacred history that John sees: the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb, Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end (Rev 1:8,17; 2:8,22; 21:6,22; 22:1,3,13) For those initiated into the secret method of measurement each side of the cubical New Jerusalem would have an area that combined the sacred numbers of God and Jesus, showing the indissoluble union of the two in the reign of God.
Contemplation on the Sacred Cube, the Holy of Holies, the place where God dwells in fullness on earth, formed a key part in the meditation that Jesus taught.
