This fourth edition of SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS & ON THE EARTH...Man's Days Are Numbered and He Is Measured has added to its title: He Is Measured - in that the entire text subjectively incorporates the dimensions of Paradise to be that of the Bride of Messiah comprised of both the Divine and the human in eternal bliss but measured as a Holy City: "Come, I will show you the Woman, the Lamb's Bride . . . And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem" (Rev. 21:9-10). . . "And he who talked with me had a gold reed the Hebrew "reed" or "rod" is some 12.6 ft.] to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. The city is laid out a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel" (Rev. 21:9-10, 15-17).Ancient measurements and/or units of measure are comprised, in essence, of numbers. They proportionately reflect the primary dimensions of earth, the moon and the sun-and even the grandeur of the universe. Metrology is the science of measurement and/or dimension. We affirm that there is, as discovered by the ancients, a "code of number" which repeatedly replicates itself in ratio and/or in direct proportion within astronomy, mathematics-geometry, music, a multitude of ancient monuments and, in particular, biblical objects, chemistry, the arts and even the social order as was the case with Plato's discourse regarding Optimal Societal Harmony relative to his ideal Magnesia, juxtaposed to the antithesis of harmony and universal equilibrium, Atlantis. As Magnesia is to the New Jerusalem, so is Babylon the Great to that of Atlantis. There is either "order in the universe" as seen in the "Dimensions of Paradise"-i.e., the Holy City of Ezekiel and the Holy City, New Jerusalem or there is "chaos" - the City of Confusion is ultimately the City of Destruction and Desolation. It is our stalwart conviction that the triumph of good over evil is the highest expression of humanity's original design and is, therefore, the providential will of the Creator to effect both the recovery and the prosperity of His original intent that man-male and female-shall partake of the Tree of Life and by so doing fulfill the Divine Design to be in relationship with the Creator in fullness.This book sets out on a "dimensional journey" which has greatly expanded over its original cover some 40,000 words in taking the supreme measurements throughout antiquity, along with those chronological and dimensional mysteries embedded in Holy Writ-especially those surrounding the "times and seasons" of the Son of Man-and woven them into a persistent pattern from the Garden to Paradise as the supreme and absolute means of the Creator in communicating to us the Divine Intention of the Ages in preparing the pinnacle of His creation, man, to be His ultimate reflection in eternal relationship with the Creator of the Universe.Without equivocation-this writing is both prophetically and numerically challenging. It surfaced not in the category of theology/eschatology but in measurement/mensuration (geometric dimensions). It became the #1 best seller outside the bounds of religiosity-however, its greatest contribution to Christianity is its absolute manipulation of the Judeo-Christian use of "number" be it in "times and seasons" - chronologies, divinely designed objects like Noah's Ark, the Ark of the Covenant, Tabernacles and Temples - eventually, the "numbers" demand a "multidimensional" comprehension of the Holy City, Jerusalem, such as Ezekiel's Vision of the Holy District and John the Beloved's view of the New Jerusalem; and finally, in the precision of number found in eschatology.You will never read the Book of books again the same way--it will mathematically & dimensionally come alive.
