The promised city New Jerusalem, destined for believers in the Messiah prophecied in the Old Testament, is described in Revelation 21 as a huge cube, the base length and height of each of the four walls 12,000 stadia, with the thickness of those walls 144 cubits, so why did God describe the dimensions of his heavenly city in olympic greek feet (600 feet/stadion) and the hebrew/egyptian royal cubit? Why would God survey his city with ostensibly the length of some greek guy’s foot and the distance between some pharoah’s elbow and fingertip? The reason cannot be clear until you know that those ancient civilizations measured the earth by a celestial timeclock, one of God’s clocks, this clock which enables distance measure here on earth, hence the term geometry, earth measure.
The lengths for the olympic foot (12.16 modern inches) and royal cubit (20.63 modern inches) were both in reality established through subdivisions of the earth’s radius, as you see 1,760 royal cubits composing the half-nautical-mile (which is 1/7,200th of the earth’s radius) base-perimeter-length of the Great Pyramid of Giza, which also is 3,000 olympic feet, or five stadia, clearly understandable now that God would use those seemingly differing measures, yet both derived from the same celestial time standard, when you read article #2 at
, the methodology by which the ancients skillfully navigated the oceans of the world during the Ice Age, which followed Noah’s Flood.
The old English translated stadia in Revelation furlongs, mistakenly, ‘though the distances are nearly equal, the furlong established as 1/8th of an old english mile, which is composed of 5,280 medieval feet, or 1,760 yards, the same number, 1,760, as the number of royal cubits which compose the base perimeter length of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, historically linked very nicely through their Atlantean connection, based in the Gibraltar region, the tin mines of Cornwall in England having been the major tin source (to make bronze) for Atlantis, and that empire known to the Egyptians, evidenced with Plato’s account learned from Egyptians, the dimensions of the City of Posidon having been explained by the egyptian priests to the greek Solon in stadia, perhaps the unit of measure for Atlantis, but then again, as Maria Elena Whitshaw, who lived in southern Spain wrote back in the 1920′s, legend has it that the fortress at Seville, previously Tartessos (Tarshish), had 176 towers, worthy of investigation for sure.
for much more corroboration.
