There are still more exhibits that really speak to us on this theme.
As I wrote recently, “Verse 9 of Joshua 4 declares that these 12 stones from the promised land were set up by Joshua. Joshua was the 13th stone mover in the ritual because 12 other men had each removed one stone.” It was Joshua who was leading Israel, demonstrating the function of the 13th with mastery over the 12 tribes. (A stone does represent a tribe, and that is one of the identifications that should be kept in mind. )
Now, when Joshua led Israel in the taking of Jericho we see another remarkable expression of mastery over space-time in a 13th.
6:1 Now Jericho was tightly shut because of the sons of Israel; no one went out and no one came in. 2 The Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and the valiant warriors. 3 You shall march around the city, all the men of war circling the city once. You shall do so for six days. 4 Also seven priests shall carry seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark; then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. 5 It shall be that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people will go up every man straight ahead.” ~ Joshua 6:1-5
And so it came to pass. Let's do the math. One lap for each of 6 consecutive days followed by 7 on the 7th day makes 13 laps in total. When the 13th lap was complete, the walls fell flat. How does that happen, meanwhile protecting a family that lived in the wall? It's a miracle, sure, and one that involved a dramatic manipulation of space-time. Make note, it's in the context of war. Time war, fought over space-time domain. Circling the city, enclosing in a circle of time. Jericho had been tightly shut, sealed. My God invented ritual, and what things are done at His direction accomplish His good pleasure, and this brings victory for the obedient. It's not magick - it's according to The Truth and genuine love, faith and hope!
Let's do some more math.
One lap around the city revolved through 360 degrees or 12*30. The entire ritual had all the men of war of the “time” people Israel revolving through 13*360 or 4680 degrees. The time+distance ritual was particularly divided, so if we consider the first part we have 6*360 or 2160 degrees. The second part produces 7*360 or 2520 degrees. These numbers are naturally derived from the ritual and are very special numbers!
2160 = 6*6*6*10.
If you give Code 666 a broad consideration you're going to have to take this into account. It's not all about the mark of the beast because there's a deeper foundation that involves space-time bridging, heaven and earth, spirit and flesh. The number 216 has a special geometric feature in that it's the smallest cube that's also the sum of three cubes. 3^3 + 4^3 + 5^3 = 6^3. Three cubed plus four cubed plus five cubed equals six cubed. This observation is noted in Plato's dialogue, the Republic, and 216 is generally considered to be Plato's number, the number he meant in his cryptic description.
In that equation of the summed cubes you should note the familiar digits of the Pythagorean triple of Euclid's 47th Problem. Euclid, author of Elements, was a student of Plato's work. In that 2D geometrical problem, the squares of the digits are represented in a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem involving area. If you raise this geometrical construction one dimension from 2D to 3D, where the areas of the squares become cubes that represent volumes, the picture becomes really interesting. The base 3.4.5 triangle is the smallest integer representation of the right triangle, and 216 is the volume of the smallest cube that's also the sum of three cubes, and that has the same numbers as a basis. Those who like to flaunt their knowledge of geometry and space-time embed instances of 666 and 3.4.5 and 47 over and over again, with imagery of squares, cubes, circles, spheres, triangles and pyramids, and the tools of their construction; squares and compasses. These express the knowledge of the illuminated ancients. Secrets of heaven were and still appear to be taught by fallen angels. But, who knows the best secrets of heaven but the sovereign Creator Himself, who conceals and reveals all things as it pleases Him. It seems likely to me that each instance of Code 47 features an inherent symbol of time (as I already illustrated), and further invokes space-time in the volume with a 216 or 6*6*6 suggested in raising it up another dimension. Esoterically, the 47th Problem suggests the ritual invocation of Horus in this space-time dimension, and the esoteric calculation of Revelation 13:18. That's chapter thirteen. And, yes, 18 is 6+6+6.
Here is the wisdom! He who is having the understanding, let him count the number of the beast, for the number of a man it is, and its number [is] 666. ~ Revelation 13:18 (YLT)
As for dealings with volume measurements, that's something we've been very curious about in recent weeks. Think of the 12 stones taken out of the Jordan when Israel had crossed over, and 12 others were put back in. Aaron had a puzzling dream last year which the Lord has brought to our minds for discussion many times since. One of the declarations he heard as we were being washed out of a building in a second wave of water was, Displaced by water and time. Then he heard, God will make a place for us. Volume. Time displacement. Space time ark. Time mission.
Have you seen the movie, “Pi”? Kabbalists and other very obsessive Occultists claim that 216 is the numerical value of Gevurah, the fifth sephirot in the kabbalistic tree of life, and the sum of the letters in God's 72 hidden names. The Shemhamphorash. Since the Devil doesn't make counterfeit 216 dollar bills, there's probably some underlying secret of heaven being exploited. That's an interpretation of the first 6 days of the ritual.
An interpretation of the 7th day's ritual involves the number 2520, but let's first consider the redundant appearance of the number 7. Seven revolutions on the seventh day. Seven priests blowing seven horns. By extension, the redundancy might be taken to suggest multiplying the number to produce 7 squared or 49, and it follows that 4+9=13 in a production of another 13, but let's fix our attention on the number that is naturally produced in the circling around the city. The familiar 2520 produced by the 13*360 factors out to 12*21*10. The mirrored time numbers, amplified! This number is famously produced in a biblical account where another wall was involved in a miraculous sign, in the context of war and an epic defeat. The 5th chapter of Daniel gives the account.
5:1 Belshazzar the king held a great feast for a thousand of his nobles, and he was drinking wine in the presence of the thousand. 2 When Belshazzar tasted the wine, he gave orders to bring the gold and silver vessels which Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines might drink from them. 3 Then they brought the gold vessels that had been taken out of the temple, the house of God which was in Jerusalem; and the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines drank from them. 4 They drank the wine and praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone. 5 Suddenly the fingers of a man’s hand emerged and began writing opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace, and the king saw the back of the hand that did the writing. 6 Then the king’s face grew pale and his thoughts alarmed him, and his hip joints went slack and his knees began knocking together. ~
So, Jerusalem's Temple factors in, which functions as “the temple at the center of time.” The kingdom's wise men were called in to divine the meaning, and on their failure, the prophet Daniel was brought before the king. The Lord brought the sign and its interpretation
22 Yet you, his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, even though you knew all this, 23 but you have exalted yourself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines have been drinking wine from them; and you have praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which do not see, hear or understand. But the God in whose hand are your life-breath and all your ways, you have not glorified. 24 Then the hand was sent from Him and this inscription was written out. 25 Now this is the inscription that was written out: 'MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.' 26 This is the interpretation of the message: ‘MENE’—God has numbered your kingdom and put an end to it. 27 ‘TEKEL’—you have been weighed on the scales and found deficient. 28 ‘PERES’—your kingdom has been divided and given over to the Medes and Persians.” ~ Daniel 5:22-28
Daniel brings forth an interpretation, and the judgment pronounced was manifest immediately. Verse 26 speaks loudly about the numbering that pertains to an end of a domain of authority.
“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN” is the terminology of the monetary system of the day. Money. It's an amount equivalent to 2,520 gerahs. There's that number again that factors out to 12*21*10, the mirrored time numbers, amplified! As it has long been said, Time is Money - and money, conversely, is TIME! Belshazzar's time was up, his reign was finished.
While the writing was being interpreted to the king, Cyrus of the Medes and Persians secretly gained access through the city of Babylon's water (as time) supply. He had been manipulating the rivers of the region. “(1.190) Having, however, thus wreaked his vengeance on the Gyndes, by dispersing it through three hundred and sixty channels, Cyrus, with the first approach of the ensuing spring, marched forward against Babylon.” (Cyrus takes Babylon: Herodotus) Dividing a river into 360 channels? Why would he do that? Why, indeed! Water as Time, the circle of time in 360 degrees. He also manipulated the flow of the Euphrates, which enabled his army to easily penetrate the city's defenses. The army entered through the unrestricted riverbed where water still flowed, breaching the walled city through the water gates. Control of water in warfare signals time as a weapon in multidimensional domains.
There is insight to be had in comparing the fall of Jericho with the fall of Babylon, where there are several similar features. The common 2520 feature is certainly a key space-time connection. We can take, key, rather literally, as it pertains to the breaching of the walls of defended zones.
It should at least be mentioned here that the book of Daniel famously describes time in sets of sevens, and some consider a prophetic year to be one of 360 day duration. There are 2520 days in 7 years of 360 day length.
With regard to Jericho's ritual, the full number produced by the encirclings of Jericho is 13*360 or 4680 degrees. Aside from the evident and important signaling of the mastery of time-circles, I note that the number is 468 times 10, and 468 is the sum of 10 consecutive primes, which is rare. (29 + 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47 + 53 + 59 + 61 + 67) What that might mean on an esoteric level, I don't know.
About the number 2520, it's now become very personal to me. Aaron and I have been witnessing signs frequently and regularly that often affirm points we've been making or are about to make on this blog. Some come via dreams or visions and some just while wide awake, through different kinds of events and observations. I was using the English gematria calculator on September 3rd to explore some things the Lord was bringing on a space-time topic. (Code: NEWS as an acronym of North East West South.) I plugged in my name to calculate the value. ROBERTWILLIAMSCHLENKER = 252 which is 12*21. The mirrored time numbers! The next day, on 9/4, I had a vision shortly after laying down for a nap. I was sound asleep, but suddenly I had to open my eyes - and, as I was about to do so, I was suddenly very alert, thinking very distinctly in forming the words that, I have to open my eyes. As they open, I was immediately focusing on the digital alarm clock showing 2:52. I flash to the numbering of my name from the previous day's discovery. Wow! OK. I thought, I should take a picture of that, but then thought, no, by the time I get the camera booted up the minute will surely have passed. The next time I was alert I checked the time, 3:33. Okay. I see that's kind of an exclamation point, and I equate that to the geometry of the earth and the 1/3 that marks off 2012 nautical miles distance. At that time, I began to be puzzled about the appearance of the clock, not because it looked abnormal but because it was normal. It occurred to me that as I had been reflecting on the clock and the 2:52 while I was not really conscious, the display I had in my mind was in bright red digits, and the clock was large, and it had been immediately in crisp focus, right in my face. It wasn't tilted even though I was laying on my right side with my head on the pillow, and my eyes didn't need to adjust to focus on the clock. It dawned on me that the observation of the 2:52 on the clock was a vision or a dream. I may have witnessed it at 2:52, but it wasn't a natural experience.
It was yet one more clock sign in a growing list of notable clock signs. We're coming up on a one year anniversary of a very special one, the apple clock sign of Yom Teruah.
The number 21 was always my favorite number. In elementary school, the class was seated in alphabetical order, and I remember how it seemed I was almost always student #21.
In 1999, the Lord engaged me as a kind of tour guide on a trip to the timeless place, with an agenda of showing Stephany that her Lord was the Lord of Time. Aaron's water baptism last year was notable with regard to symbols and time features, and perhaps the Lord will ordain the sharing of the testimony at some point. We are continuing to gear up for what we believe is going to be a time mission that will involve a time reset. Pray for us, if you would, as the Lord may lead. What an interesting season this is!
