"Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?"
(Song of Solomon 6:10)
Fair As The Moon
Greetings. Below is an interesting video featuring David Icke. David Icke is a very controversial writer and lecturer who is becoming more well known and popular, especially amongst those who read the alternate news sources.
He is a very good researcher and has had numerous physic experiences. In the video below he brings out some very interesting points, many postulated by others, other than himself, concerning different abnormalities and ideas concerning the moon.
Although we are presenting this video by David we do want to make it very clear that we do not necessarily accept or promote David's other ideas or theories.
We, "People of the Keys", always try to present material with our belief of a Christian world view, David does not necessarily espouse a Christian world view, although he does believe in the spirit world but as far as we understand does not hold Jesus to be God's son and way of salvation.
Following the video is a letter written by David Berg, twenty six years ago, concerning a revelation he received concerning the moon. At the time David Berg received this revelation it was perceived by some as being somewhat outlandish.
We hope you find it interesting to see this video now and read the letter.
Here is a link concerning a previously published presentation concerning the moon, Rule The Night.
We hope you enjoy some "out of the box" ideas.
THE MOON!--And the Hidden City!
By David Berg
New Jerusalem is 1500 miles wide and 1500 miles high, so that requires a sphere of about 2,000 miles in diameter in order to accommodate the entire City in its pyramid shape with its five separate corners within the sphere, the four corners of the four-square base of the City rise along its edges to the apex at the top. The base is 1500 miles by 1500 miles square, and the altitude of the apex is 1500 miles above the base. These dimensions are given in the Bible in the 21st Chapter of Revelation. From these then it is easy for any mathematician who knows his Geometry to figure out a few of the other dimensions. "And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal." Revelation 21:16 (Based on the size of the cubit it would actually range from 1300 miles to 1500 hundred miles. David based his dimensions on the larger cubit.)
For example, the length of one edge from the apex to one corner is 1,837 miles. The distance from the apex to the middle of the base of one of the triangular sides is 1,677 miles. The distance from one corner of the base of the Pyramid to the opposite corner across the Pyramid's floor, catty-corner as we say, is 2121 miles.
Then as I was trying to figure out the size of the sphere which contains it, I had to make some rough geometric diagrams in order to measure it and I kept coming up with this figure of 2121 miles, that the sphere around it would have to be at least 2121 miles in diameter in order to contain this large pyramidical-shaped City. These multiples of threes and sevens keep coming up.--Like 3 x 7 = 21!--God's favourite numbers.
So in order to get something to compare it with, with which we are familiar, I knew from former calculations that this ball containing the City was close to the dimensions of the Moon. To my amazement I discovered that the diameter of the Moon itself is just 2160 miles, only slightly larger than the sphere containing the Holy City!
I received the most shocking revelation that I have ever received in almost my entire life!--And it is going to be something hard for you to believe! So I rapidly began looking up Scriptures to see if the Bible confirms what I have just learned, and I ran across some of these beautiful Scriptures that firmly confirm this revelation and are so thrilling that I got so excited I nearly jumped off my chair!
Here are a few of them for you: Psalm 8:3-5: "When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the Moon, the stars which Thou hast ordained." Here He mentions the Moon first! Why first the Moon? Why not the Sun? He says, "What is man that Thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that Thou visitest him? For Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels and hast crowned him with glory and honour." Why does He say "a little lower than the angels"? Has that to do with status? Or perhaps even distance?
Then in Psalm 72:7 It is speaking of the coming of the LORD and the millennial kingdom of Jesus Christ on the Earth. In this beautiful 7th verse of this 72nd Psalm--several beautiful 7's, God's number--He says, speaking of the Kingdom of Christ on Earth...let's read the first part of the Psalm: "Give the king Thy judgements, O God, and Thy righteousness unto the King's Son." (Here's God and His Son, Jesus.) "He shall judge Thy people with righteousness, and Thy poor with judgement. The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness. He shall judge the poor of the people, He shall save the children of the needy, He shall break in pieces the oppressor." (Psalm 72:1-4) This is a picture of the coming Millennial Kingdom of Christ on Earth just as clear as can be!
"They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations!" (Psalm 72:5) How long are they going to fear God?--As long as the Sun and here comes the Moon, "and Moon endure, throughout all generations!" In other words, man is going to fear God as long as the Sun and Moon endure. How long will that be? Well, man is going to fear God forever, so that means the Sun and the Moon are here to stay, to endure forever!
(For the believer, the fear of God is reverence of God. Hebrews 12:28-29 is a good description of this: "Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our 'God is a consuming fire.'" This reverence and awe is exactly what the fear of God means for Christians. This is the motivating factor for us to surrender to the Creator of the Universe. GotQestions.org)
"He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass; as showers that water the earth. In His day shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the Moon endureth." (Psalm 72:6,7) Why again this emphasis on the Moon?--That "the righteous will flourish and there will be an abundance of peace as long as the Moon endureth!" Well, we know that certainly the righteous are going to flourish forever in that Heavenly City and there will be abundance of peace on Earth forever, according to the Word of God on the New Earth, the Heavenly Earth. But He says, "As long as the Moon endureth!" Why again the emphasis on the Moon?
Then in the 89th Psalm he is even more specific! In the 36th and 37th verses, speaking again, "His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before me!" So the Moon is going to last forever!--Why the Moon?
And "as a faithful witness in heaven." Well, what's a faithful witness? He is saying that the Moon is a faithful witness! Now how can the Moon be a faithful witness? Well, the Lord has often likened us, His Church, His people, to His reflection, like the Moon is the reflection of the Sun. He is our Sun, we are His Moon, and He also calls us His Bride, the Bride of Christ. And we reflect His Light, His Love, His Word, His beauty and all that He is like. We are a reflection of it all, a reflection of the Lord.
Then again in Psalm 104:19 He says, "He appointed the moon for seasons." Now we know that the Moon has a great deal of influence upon the Earth, right? It affects the tides, the menstrual periods of women, and for years man has believed and the Ancients were convinced of and there have even been a few scientific examples of it, that the Moon has a definite effect upon our minds. Why? Why this importance of the Moon?
In fact, the moon is extremely important throughout the Bible, as it was the sign for the times of the various important religious feasts of the Old Testament and it was the measurement of the years and the days of the month and was considered extremely significant in all of their religious activities, as the days of the feasts were determined by the various phases of the Moon. (Genesis1:14)
Then in the Song of Solomon there is a very strange verse, for as you know, although it is a definite love poem to one of Solomon's wives, particularly it is said to be about the Queen of Sheba, nevertheless, all theologians and ministers for ages have considered that it was also a significant poem, an allegory or like a parable. It was really the Lord speaking to His Bride, His Wife, whom He calls the Bride of Christ! In the 6th Chapter of the Song of Solomon, the 10th verse, He speaks of her as, "Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the Moon, clear as the Sun, and terrible as an army with banners?" Here again is a picture of the Bride of Christ likened to the Moon!
In Psalm 81, the psalmist associates the blowing of a great trumpet to the new moon, saying, "Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob! Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery. Blow up the trumpet in the New Moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn Feast Day." (Psalm 81:1-3) Now that sounds a lot like the coming of the Lord, doesn't it? And the coming Wedding Feast with His Bride!
When He comes again, is He not going to have the trumpet blown, the last trump? When He says that "We shall all be changed in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump", when we will be raptured up to be with Him forever! (1Corinthians 15:52) And is it not by that Trump that He summons us on high to come to that great Wedding Feast of the Lamb, as it is called?--The Lamb, the Bridegroom with His Bride, the true Church, all true saved Christians of the World! servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. "And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God." (Revelation 19:6-9) "As the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee." (Isa.62:5b)
Here again he associates it with the moon, the new moon! Remember now, the Moon being likened to the Bride of Christ and associated with the Bride of Christ, His truly saved Church. Then we turn over to Revelation and what does it say?
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away." (Revelation 21:1) The first atmospheric heavens had been burned away and the first surface of the Earth was also burned away, to cleanse it of Satan and evil man and all their pollution. And God has now in this passage created a New Earth, a new surface on this eternal ball, and a new beautiful atmospheric heavens that shall never pass away! "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." (2Peter 3:10) "
Then he says, "and I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband!" (Revelation 21:2) John sees the Heavenly City coming down out of the heavens prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband. Now remember, this Bride has also been pictured as the Moon, the Lord being our Sun and we being His Moon, as a Bride reflecting His glory.--And now He pictures this Moon-Bride as a City!
So here again we have a picture of these related subjects of the Bride and the Holy City and the Moon! So I began thinking, "What does that mean, Lord? What are You trying to show me? What are You trying to tell me?"
Then suddenly it dawned on me that there is a reason why that beautiful blue crystal globe sea surrounding the Heavenly City is only slightly smaller than the Moon! For the Heavenly City is already here! As I saw so clearly it is already not far away, but it is hidden from the sight of man by the Moon!
"You mean it's behind the moon! It is not behind the Moon, it is the Moon! It is within the Moon! That is why the Moon is only slightly larger than that beautiful globe which contains the City itself!
That gorgeous beautiful orb there in the sky which God has compared to His Bride, and said will last as long as "my throne endures" and as long as the righteous endure and as long as His reign and rule over all the Universe endures, He says that Moon will last forever! And why?--Because that Moon is extremely important! It merely hides the Holy City from the view of Worldly man! (Psalm 72:5; Psalm 89:36,37)
Why is the moon only slightly larger than the globe containing the holy city? Because God had to make the Moon big enough to hide the Heavenly City with that crust of rocks, its diameter being only about 40 miles wider than the blue crystal sea orb surrounding the City itself! So therefore that shell of Moon rocks must be only about 20 miles thick and merely a covering for the beautiful blue orb of the crystal sea which contains the City!
This Holy City, this Bride of Christ, is within the Moon itself!
So, heaven is not as far away as we thought! How about that? It's right up here hidden under the surface of the Moon! I know that is going to be hard for some of you to believe. It came as a shock to me and was hard for me to receive it at first! But the more I studied it and the more I measured and the more I looked I could see it just as clearly as could be! I
Well, I must admit, this is the most shocking revelation I think I ever got!
Now why do you suppose that the same side of the moon is always focused towards the earth? The bright side that is towards you is always towards you, and the Moon never turns that face away from the Earth. Although the Earth rotates all of its faces towards the Moon, the bright side of the Moon that you always see is always facing the Earth and never in any other position throughout all ages!
So the base of the pyramid is also always facing the earth, possibly for even greater protection from all of its evils and its dangers! So it will be ready and in position to land one of these days when God lets it slip right through that Moon coating and its protective ball to come down out of Heaven from God to land on the Earth, the New Earth after the Millennium with New Man!
If you would like to make sure you are a part of that Moon-Bride that will join with Jesus at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in New Jerusalem, receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. To do this just requires a few moments to simply pray: "Dear Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross to take away the sins of the world. I ask you to please forgive my sins, come into my heart and give me eternal life." For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Until next week...
