Song of Songs
Song of Songs is a love affair of G-D to His lover, His people, like the Bridegroom serenading His Bride.
Who is coming up from the desert like a column of smoke ...myrrh ... spices. Look! It is Solomon's carriage escorted by 60 (70 Sanhedrin?) warriors, the noblest of Israel...
King Solomon made for himself the carriage, he made it of wood from Lebanon, posts of silver, base of gold. Seat was upholstered with purple, interior lovingly inlaid by the daughters of Zion, and look at King Solomon wearing the crown, the crown with which his mother crowned him on the day of his wedding, the day his heart rejoiced.
Note: This is a reference to Solomon being the same stature as Metatron, the marriage of Heaven to Earth. (My daughter - my sister - my mother)
After the verses of detestable and meaningless offerings, a relief is stated.
Let us reason together, though your sins be like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Note: Colour change on the Altar, from charred to sanctified.
Though they are like crimson (sacrificial blood), they shall be as wool.
Note: This refers to the bearded image/tassels, smoke curling like the beard of the wearer of the crown.
This speaks of the change in status and function of the altar, from active sacrifice to personal public faith. Sacrificed daily are the sins of Israel (on paper), yearly - the Atonement sacrifice.
In the last days, the mountain of the Lord’s Temple will be established. Many people will say.... The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
I saw the Lord seated on a Throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe (rainbow light) filled the temple. And above him were seraphs, each with 6 wings, with 2 they covered their faces, 2 covered their feet, 2 were flying, calling to one another: "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty, the whole earth is full of his glory."
Note: Isaiah sees the "merkavah" with closed draw bridge entrances hence the "wings" covering their legs.
The Egyptians and the Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord almighty will bless them saying:
"Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance."
See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation.
Note: Cornerstone is a 3 axial stone, carrying weight, yet faceted on 2 elevational fronts.
I will create new heavens and a new earth.
Daniel's interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the large golden headed statue being felled by a rock at its iron/clay feet, with the rock becoming a huge mountain filling the earth, is a dream of how rigidity (inflexibility) causes dispersion. The rock is the replacing force, which fills the earth.
3- axiality as a replacement to 2 axial binary.
The 4 figures in the furnace are a repeat of the 4 creatures within the fiery structure of the "Merkavah". Nebuchadnezzar's dream of the tree (himself) is reminiscent of the Holy Tree, cut down and dispersed, placed in bondage, the roots alive to sprout growth again.
Vision of the Ram and Goat, where the goats horn is broken off and in its place 4 prominent horns grew up towards the 4 winds of heaven, is reminiscent of the structures 4 pinnacles, the apex' of the 4 creatures. This dream is related to the rebuilding of the sanctuary.
Important Note: The many dreams, interpretations and roles within Daniel are not for me to speculate, nor is it within me to understand further than the images that relate to the structure that I propose.
I suggest that these images and roles will only be possible to interpret correctly retrospectively.
The glory of the present house will be greater than the glory of the former house, says the Lord Almighty.
When anyone came to a heap of 20 measures, there were only 10. When anyone went to a wine vat to draw 50 measures, there were only 20.
Note: See Ezekiel ch41vs2 graphic for how the 40:20 relates to the 20:10 within the internal 50-cubit space. This is a crucial verse as it relates the measurements of Solomon (5:20:10) to the proposed structures relationship to the Rock.
Drop 50 from the upper pavement to the Rock, at the same time, project 20:10 horizontally into the courtyard creating the Priests Chamber and the Most Holy Place. If 40 and 20 are dropped from the upper pavement, the volumetric middle of the volumetric 20 sits on the centre of the actual Rock. This 20 measurement relates directly to the lofty 10 Throne Room, exactly 7 measures above the Rock. It is to these measurements that Haggai Ch42 vs. 2 has relevance. This verse relates the new position of the Throne Room to its original position, on the Rock.
I looked up and there before me were 4 horns. The angel asked me: What are these?
These are the horns that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem. Then I saw 4 craftsmen. What are these coming to do?
These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could raise their head, but the craftsmen have come to terrify them and throw down these horns of the nations who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter its people.
Man with a measuring rod. I am going to measure Jerusalem to see how wide and long it is.
Another angel came to me and said: "Run tell that man that Jerusalem is a city without walls because of the great number of people and livestock in it. And I myself will be a wall of fire around it," declares the Lord, "and I will be its glory within".
I looked up again and before me were 4 chariots coming out from between 2 mountains. 1 with red horses; black; white and dappled.
Note: The Merkavah is 4 chariots in 1, 4 directional.
These are the 4 spirits of Heaven going out from standing in the presence of the Lord of the whole world. Black going North, White west, Dappled south.
Take silver and gold and make a crown and set it on the head of the high priest Joshua, son of Jehozadok. Branch, he will branch out from his place.
Note: In concluding the Pre-Herodian writings, there is a consistent appearance of the number 4. This relates to the proposed temple structure with its 4 structural legs rising into a "crown" made up of 4 interlocking triangles, (4 winds /rivers/ directions), 4 - sided place being defined by the cube.
