This time we focus on the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar made in chapter 3 of Daniel.
Pay attention on the ratio: 60 cubits to 6 cubits
King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, sixty cubits high and six cubits wide, and set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon. (Daniel 3:1)
If you know all the ratios associated with human body dimensions, you will find it strange and odd to have such a ratio. Take Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawing “Vitruvian Man” for example, we can get the proportions of the human body:
What ratio of a man’s ultimate height (toe of hands to toe of feet, imagine he raises up both his hands over his head) over his width (shoulder to shoulder) can we get? Yes, 6:1. Do you see what is wrong here?
This ratio is way off from 60 cubits vs 6 cubits, the ratio of 10.
In fact, if you measure a man’s height from his head to toe, and then his shoulder to shoulder width, you will get a ratio of only 5, half of 10!
This makes one think that Daniel chapter 3 might have included the height of base. Take a look at this painting I got from the internet:
While this might help explain the ratio of 10, we need to ask this question: can we not find the ratio of 10 in a person’s body at all? Yes, we can. We can get that ratio only when you look at a person from the side. Take a look at the following image I got from internet showing how a person do 180 degree return during backstroke swim competition:
Right there – the toe to toe dimension vs the front to back dimension. It is exactly 10!
That means that we have so far got two ratios in human boday: 6 and 10, the ratior of 6 when you look a person from front or from back; 10 when you watch from the side.
Second question, besides a human body, where can we find these two ratios?
Are you ready to get the answer?
From the Bible when it describes Noah’s Ark dimensions:
This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. (Genesis 6:15)
Now we see, 300/50 = 6 and 300/30 = 10.
What does this mean?
This means that Noah’s Ark was made in human proportions! It resembles a man floating on the surface of water when the Flood happened! Whoever can enter inside will be saved.
I find two videos that help us to learn more about Noah’s Ark and its implications:
Where else we find these two ratios beside human body and Noah’s Ark?
In the book of Exodus where it describes how Moses should direct his men with skills to make the Tabernacle, with Holy Place and Holy of Holies. Now pay attention to the general dimensions of Moses’ Tabernacle, see the following diagram:
Now add up the edge lengths for the outer court, the holy place and the holy of holies – what do we get in cubit?
Outer court girth: 100 + 50 + 100 + 50 = 300
Holy Place (three sides): 20 + 10 + 20 = 50
Holy of Holies (three sides): 10 + 10 + 10 = 30
Now we see the same dimensions and same ratios being found in Moses’ Tabernacle. The only difference is, the outer dimensions become inner dimensions!
So where do we find God? Why Gentiles always want to set up an idol in physical form for God?
One last piece of information that will shock many – the ratio of 10 is found in Washington Monument (the original design was not meant to build that high), the same ratio we have found in the image that King Nebuchadnezzar made and set up. Take a look at the following picture and dimenional information in the inset:
What do we see? 550 feet in total height and 55 feet in width at the base, the ratio of 10 again!
There is more…
Check the word “Babylon” (original meaning is to jumble or to confuse), it’s Aramaic form <0895> is found 25 times. It is interesting that both numbers 895 and 25 have the same nuermical root of (133_55_250), a group of three numbers that James Harrison calls it “the Circle of Hell” in his book “The Pattern and The Prophercy: God’s Great Code“. We call it the 3-element circulating root that symbolizes the vicious and rebellious circle of fall with no stopping and ending.
It is obvious that both 550 and 50 (total heigt and base width in Washington Momument) share the same numerical root (133_55_250) – to learn what is a numerical root, please check this book “Numbers and Roots of Numbers in the Bible” at this place: 1.1459919.com
That is why the book of Revelation talks about binding and locking up the devil in the Abyss. Without that, the good time of Millennial Jubilee will never come.
We will stop here and let you figure out the rest of messages you can get out of Daniel chapter 3. You are welcome to share your findings in the comment area.
