Ezekiel’s Wheel

EZEKIEL’S WHEEL

Window of the Open Book and the Director’s Window

     The book of Ezekiel is apocalyptic writing.  It is based upon the Minor Pyramid Matrix of Principle, and/or the Golden Candlestick.

     Ezekiel’s first and seventh sections are basically the foundation stone for the book.  In the first section you have Ezekiel’s Wheel and in the seventh section you have the Holy City.  Both are basically one and the same matrix structure.  This same pattern is found in Revelation’s first and seventh visions.
     We must naturally ask ourselves what Ezekiel was really telling us about with his symbols.  Was it really an alien U.F.O. made by ancient astronauts?  Hardly.  Since Ezekiel is putting forth symbols to us it is important to understand that these symbols are meant to spiritually teach man.  What do the symbols teach us?  They teach us the structure of Science, God’s Science that belongs to the tree of life.
     Ezekiel’s Wheel is the symbol used for the circular Unity Matrix.  This matrix is based upon the four squared-cycles for the divine calculus of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and divine Science.  Below is a picture of a painting I did of Window of the Open Book.  However, my keystones go clockwise and the images (except for the Big Dipper Keystone) are backwards from Window of the Open Book.  I did this on purpose.  I presented the Wheel as it would appear from outside the Church building (from outside material organization).  My painting depicts the four squared-cycles of the divine calculus.  Red is for the Word, yellow is for the Christ, blue is for Christianity, and green is for Science.

     The stained glassed Window of the Open Book, on the southern wall of The First Church of Christ Scientist Edifice (in Boston, Massachusetts), is Ezekiel’s Wheel.

Is Christian Science a cult?
     Today many people think of Christian Science as a cult.  I am not against this idea, unless people are thinking of the type of cult that has some crazy leader in charge making up crazy rules and regulations (dogma, creed, tenets).
     The word “cult” actually means “wheel.”  It also has to do with the words “cultivation” and “civilization.”  Where did the definition of wheel for cult come from?  I happen to believe that it came from a pattern set up in ancient cities like those found in Egypt.  Temples were very important to the Egyptians.  They had three sections of the Outer Court, the Inner Court, and the most Holy of Holies (where the god statues were put).  Around the Temple is where the priests lived, and around the priests was the culture of people itself.  Notice the word “around” that I use?  It means circle, and a wheel is a circle.
     Moses[1] used this Egyptian pattern of civilization and it is described perfectly in the book of Numbers.  There is the Holy Tabernacle with its Outer Court, Inner Court, and Most Holy of Holies (where the ark was placed).  Encamped around the Holy Tabernacle Tent of Meeting was the tribe of Levi, the priests and their families.  Encamped around the Levites were the twelve tribes of Israel (Joseph’s two sons took their place in the Wheel – Ephraim was Joseph and Manasseh took Levi’s place on the Wheel).
     And because the Rose Window – Window of the Open Book (which happens to be speaking of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Reverend Mary Baker Eddy) – is a wheel, I feel that its symbols are of most importance to our spiritual learning (As Mary Baker Eddy tells us, “Spiritual teaching must always be by symbols.”)
     I feel that the reasons why the book of Ezekiel has not been understood, by most people, is do to the fact that people do not understand what the symbols are telling them.  And that is why I feel that I needed to write this article.

The Stargate

     The original Stargate is rooted to the physical science called astrology.  It has twelve star constellations (at one time it is said to have had thirteen constellations[2]) in its belt (wheel).  However, these constellations reside in the sea of the dragon (Draco).  This tells us that this sea must become nothing (seen as nothing as John does in Revelation [the last book of the Bible]).
     Window of the Open Book is a Stargate also.  However, its belt (wheel) is made up of four major stars and eight minor stars.  Each star has seven points of light.  These seven points represent the seven synonymous terms (the seven names) for God – Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  The four major stars are for the squared-cycle for the Word (forming a square shape).  The eight minor stars are for the two squared-cycles for the Christ (head) and Christianity (the body, the gross, the Christ mass).  This Stargate nullifies the physical powers of astrology.
     I have taken the Bible verses of Ezekiel and spiritually interpreted them as to how I feel they teach us the Wheel’s Matrix structure.

Ezekiel begins

Ezekiel 1:1-3 – Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.  In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin’s captivity, The word of the Lord came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was there upon him.

     The number thirty has to do with Soul (3) and the application of Soul to the human (10).  The fourth month is Principle, and the fifth day is Life, but it also symbolizes the Word reflecting the Christ.  Ezekiel begins in the state of thought that is later demonstrated by Jesus as the Son of man.  At the beginning of chapter 2 Ezekiel is even called the “son of man.”
     “The heavens were opened” means that the Stargate was opened.  Ezekiel began to understand the Wheel’s (the Stargate’s) matrix structure.  Hence, he saw God’s visions of the Stargate (Wheel) Matrix.
     Ezekiel is not only a priest but he is also God’s prophet, because God’s hand (power) is upon him.
     King Jehoiachin represents the physical body that tries to rule the body of man via the five physical senses.  But sense testimony can only lead man into captivity.
     Being the son of Buzi means that Ezekiel is the son of contempt and scorn for all that does not measure up to the divine phase of justice and right.  This contempt and scorn would be held toward king Jehoiachin and the Chaldean’s physical science.
     The Chaldeans were astrologers.  This means that they had their own Wheel Matrix.  Chebar means strength.  Rivers are symbols for the stream of conscious thought.  So it is the stream of astrological thinking that Ezekiel has come to spiritually translate back to God with the true Wheel Matrix structure that he saw in his visions given to him by God.
     Since posting this article I have realized that the ancient religion of astrology is animal magnetism.  The zodiac is literally a “zoo” belt or circle, and it is the belief of astrology (animal magnetism) that man is governed and ruled by external forces known as planets, stars, suns, moons, etc.  The first thing that Abraham did was leave the city where astrology was practiced, he progressed out of the place that practiced the religion of astrology.  It was up to him, via his mental seed, to found a new scientific system that translated the physical science called astrology.  And this scientific system would be known as a city of civilization (wheel) in the Holy Land.  The city of peace known as Jerusalem.

Ezekiel 1:4,5 – And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
     Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures.  And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.

     This “whirlwind” is the name of Eddy, and she came out of the north (the Word).  She was also born in North America, and in the northeast country of the United States of America.  A “great cloud, and a fire enfolding itself, and brightness about it” symbolizes the angel of Revelation 10, one secret identity of Mary Baker Eddy.  In the middle is the color of amber (yellow) sunflower petals, from inside the middle section’s sunflower’s fire (the Word of God) is depicted a “little open book” known as Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Reverend Mary Baker Eddy.  It is the Word (fire) of this little open book that will baptize man with fire (with the Word).
     And inside the amber sunflower is this book with its written copy and the woman’s portrait of the divine calculus.  And this book presents to all mankind the appearance of the one man as the image and likeness of God, the man of the Sixth Day of Truth from Genesis 1.  This man/woman has dominion.

The city foursquare of divine Science

Ezekiel 1:6 – and every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

     The four living creatures (the calculus of Spirit) present man in the likeness of God with four tones and for activities.  The four tones are – the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science.  The four activities are:  1) the Word as the Word, the Word as the Christ, the Word as Christianity, the Word as divine Science; 2) the Christ as the Word, the Christ as the Christ, the Christ as Christianity, the Christ as divine Science; 3) Christianity as the Word, Christianity as the Christ, Christianity as Christianity, Christianity as divine Science; and 4) divine Science as the Word, divine Science as the Christ, divine Science as Christianity, and divine Science as divine Science.

Ezekiel 1:7 – And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot:  and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.

     These feet are straight edges, like rulers (12 inches) or yard sticks (3 feet).  These straight edges are the edges of the four squares.  The sole is a flattened bottom, what something rests upon – spiritual understanding and spiritual substance.  The calf is the Christ understanding and the brass is the Christ’s inflexible nature.

Ezekiel 1:8 – And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.

     They have the hands of spiritual power of a man (who has dominion over the earth).  Under their wings of activity are their four sides (edges of the squares).  And they have their four faces (four tones) and their wings (four corners of four pairs of tones = sixteen corners of activity = a divine calculus).

Ezekiel 1:9 – Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.

     And the corners (wings) are joined (connected).  They turned not, Life is always forward, infinite progression is “straight forward.”
     The word “ward” is very interesting.  It means to always be on guard, to protect; it is a projecting ridge of metal in a lock casing or keyhole permitting only the insertion of a key [to the Scriptures] with a corresponding notch (the edge of a book that is rounded).  The Key to the Scriptures teaches how to be on guard and when we understand its Word we are protected.

Ezekiel 1:10 – As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side:  and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

     As for the likeness of their faces (identities and/or tones) the four had the face of a man in its beginning corner for Christianity as Christianity, and the face of a lion in its beginning corner for the Word as the Word on the right side, or on the West side of Science:  and the four had the face of an ox in its beginning corner for the Christ as the Christ on the left side, or on the East side of the Christ; the four also had the face of an eagle for Science as the Word, Science as the Christ, Science as Christianity, and Science as Science.  And the face of an eagle is not mentioned as being on any side because it is found in the midst of the wheel as the hub of the wheel.

Ezekiel 1:11 – Thus were their faces:  and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.

     This was their four-squared-identities:  and their wings (corners) were stretched outwards, away from the center of the wheel.  Two wings (corners) of every one were joined one to another (the Word Square and the Science Capstone Square), and two (the Christ and Christianity) covered the bodies of the Word and Science.

Ezekiel 1:12 – And they went everyone straight forward:  whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

     And they went everyone straight forward (toward the South = Christianity) whither the spirit was to go.  They turned not when they went.

Ezekiel 1:13 – As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps:  it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.

     After Ezekiel understood the Unity Matrix of the Stargate or Wheel he began to understand how Aaron’s Rod (the Golden Candlestick Matrix) fit in with this Unity Matrix of ShAaron’s Rose Window Matrix.

     The likeness of the living creatures were burning coals of the seven lights of the Golden Candlestick Matrix – Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  The lights went upward in an ascending order and then downward in a descending order, like the Golden Candlestick does, as the living creatures are found among (within) the Golden Candlestick matrix – this is what is now known as Aaron’s Rod within ShAron’s Rose Window Matrix.  And the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth enlightenment as quick as lightning = instantaneous illumination.

Ezekiel 1:14 – And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

     The lights of the Golden Candlestick ascend and descend as fast as lightning flashes (instantly).

The city of our God recognized as Christian Science

Ezekiel 1:15 – Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

     Now as I beheld (understood) the divine calculus, I saw one whole (complete) wheel that is the earth (a sphere that turns like a wheel), and that the four living creatures with his four faces are recognized on Earth as the four cardinal points of the compass.  Hence I have begun to understand the city of our God in the tone of Christian Science.

The New Jerusalem artichoke

Ezekiel 1:16 – The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl:  and they four had one likeness:  and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

     In Window of the Open Book (the beryl color of stained glass) I see the wheel within the middle of a wheel, the eye of the wheel is something central, centered – in the Window is the sunflower (the New Jerusalem – City of Peace).

Ezekiel 1:17 – When they went, they went upon their four sides:  and they turned not when they went.

     The divine calculus, to reemphasize, does not get distracted or turned from its original spiritual course.

Ezekiel 1:18 – As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.

     As for the ringing tones of the divine calculus, it is so high that it is dreadful to mortal sense.  And these tones are full of omniscience as the four living creatures are all about the seven synonymous terms for God.  These tones are full of eyes – specially modified structures of Science.

Ezekiel 1:19 – And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them:  and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

     When the divine calculus operates it is as the nature of the Christ, and when the creatures are lifted up from the earth (finite sense), the wheels are lifted up to the level of the Grand Gallery (the Third Degree’s spiritual Understanding).  When Mary Baker Eddy lifted up the divine calculus in the consciousness of mankind the Window of the Open Book was lifted up to its place in the Church Edifice.

     The nature of Christianity is to demonstrate the Christ.  This is the reflection of the Christ-idea, the absolute coincidence of the Christ-idea with its Principle in pure reflection and pure demonstration.

Ezekiel 1:20 – Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them:  for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

     Where ever man’s spirit directs him the divine calculus is found.  The wheels were lifted up in man’s consciousness in opposition to finite sense testimony.  The divine calculus is in the wheels of spiritual progress just as it is within Window of the Open Book.

Ezekiel 1:21 – When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them:  for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

     These wheels are the twelve stars wheel, the twelve keystones wheel, the Jerusalem artichoke wheel, and the four squared-cycles.

Ezekiel 1:22 – And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

     The word “terrible” means “awesome, extreme, and great.”  This terrible crystal is a stained glass window of pure reflection; crystal always reflects perfectly.  This window is stretched forth over the congregation’s heads in the Grand Gallery of the Boston Edifice.

Ezekiel 1:23 – And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other:  every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.

     And under the firmament (foundation) of Spirit are the wings of Science (the Golden Candlestick or Aaron’s rod) each side is for the other side, each side works in conjunction with the other side.  Every branch of the Golden Candlestick has two synonyms, the one toward the other (also like two corners of a square facing each other):  every one had two synonyms, which covered on the upper side, and everyone had two that covered on the lower side of their squared bodies.

     The Square of Science includes four chapters (13, 14, 15, and 16) from the Textbook – “Teaching Christian Science” (Soul and Life), “Recapitulation” (Spirit and Truth), “Genesis,” (Mind and Love), and “The Apocalypse” (Principle).  The first three chapters represent the three branches of the Golden Candlestick for Science as the Word (Soul and Life), Science as the Christ (Spirit and Truth), and Science as Christianity (Mind and Love), while the last chapter represents the trunk of Science itself (Aaron’s Rod = Principle) – Science as Science.

Ezekiel 1:24 – And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host:  when they stood they let down their wings.

     I heard the Soul of their Life action.  It was as the noise of the great mental waters of spiritual teachings roaring in my consciousness.  This roar of the Lion (the Word) is the voice of God Almighty speaking to each and every one of us.  It is like the sound of a host that invites us in to sup with him!  Science knows only standing, moral courage.  And the wings of Science descend on each side, just like the Pyramid Matrix of Principle descends on each side while standing firm upon the trunk (rod) of the Principles of Christian Science.

Ezekiel 1:25 – And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

     And, when the two wings descend there is a voice from heaven that speaks things of omnipotence.  It rules over the heads of the six flames upon the wings of Science, this voice is the flame of Principle.

Ezekiel 1:26 – And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone:  and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

     In heaven is the throne of Principle appearing as a sapphire stone.  Sapphire = dear Saturn, or the dear Sixth Day of Truth (Saturday), for Truth is given the color of a deep dark blue.  God’s throne is Truth, the Christ Truth is upon the throne; his likeness is the appearance of a man, the man who has dominion in the Sixth Day of Truth.  And in Window of the Open Book, the one dressed in sapphire is Mary Baker Eddy in the Woman God-crowned Keystone.  And next to the Woman God-crowned Keystone is the Keystone for the Lord and Lamb.

Marriage

Ezekiel 1:27 – And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his [the man’s] loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.  [For (s)he was clothed with the sun.]

     And I saw the color of the Jerusalem artichoke as the sun (fire) round about the Little Open Book and within the twelve Keystone Windows.  And the Window is as fire, and shines bright round about because it is glass.
     This lumber (loin) is the paper of a “Little Open Book.”

The Arch of the Covenant

Ezekiel 1:28 – As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about.  This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.  And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

Angel Rev. 10 Win

     And the angel with the little open book, who is later on spoken of in Revelation 10, appears to Ezekiel as the Arch of the Covenant, the bow (the seven fold aspect of God) within the cloud that Noah gave witness to.  The “day of rain” is the Second Day of Spirit, with the Noah story.  For her name is in the center of the Rose Window, Reverend Mary Baker Eddy.  This is the appearance that took place, for she is the likeness of God’s glory.  And I saw this Truth, I fell upon my face in humility and out of humbleness for the Truth, and I heard a voice of God that spake to me.

EZEKIEL is the commissioned “son of man.”  He has his own God-crowned mission to fulfill.

Ezekiel 2:1-5 – And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.  And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.  And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me:  they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.  For they are impudent children and stiffhearted, I do send thee unto them:  and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God.  And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.

     It is essential for each of us to analyze error before we begin our God-crowned mission.  We are helped to do this with the divine reckoning (divine calculus).  The throne of grace, standing upon our feet with a sense of omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, and omni-action of good (Spirit), enables us to handle animal magnetism.  This prophet is sent to the impudent children of mortal mind and the stiffhearted (uncaring and unloving).  When we voice the Word of God we may be heard or they may not listen to us.  But no matter how we are received they still know that there is a prophet among them.
     The first section of Ezekiel, the section for Mind, is from Ezekiel 1:3-3:13.  The section about the Wheel is basically over.  What follows is about Israel’s disobedience and the roll.  The roll, or scroll, is basically a book, the same book as Revelation 10’s “a little book open.”

Christian Unity

Christian Unity

Ezekiel 3:1-3 – Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll [the woman’s bread], and go speak unto the house of Israel.  So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.  And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee.  Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

Revelation 10:8-10 – And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.  And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book [the woman’s bread].  And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.  And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey:  and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.”

     “Then will a voice from harmony cry:  ‘Go and take the little book [my Science and Health]….Take it, and eat it up [mentally digest it]; and it shall make they belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.’  Mortals, obey the heavenly evangel.  Take divine Science.  Read this book [scroll] from beginning to end.  Study it, ponder it.  It will be indeed sweet at its first taste, when it heals you; but murmur not over Truth, if you find its digestion bitter.  When you approach nearer and nearer to this divine Principle, when you eat the divine body of this Principle, — thus partaking of the nature, or primal elements of Truth and Love, — do not be surprised nor discontented because you must share the hemlock cup and eat the bitter herbs; for the Israelites of old at the Paschal meal thus prefigured this perilous passage out of bondage into the El Dorado of faith and hope.” (S&H 559:16-31)
     The seventh section is Ezekiel 40-48:35.  This section is in the tone of Love and it speaks of the city foursquare and the temple’s measurements.  It has much in common with Ezekiel’s Wheel.  I will leave it for another time, but feel free to read Ezekiel and see what you get out of it after understanding the Unity Matrix.

UPDATE MATRIX STRUCTURES
     I want to share the following structures with you to help you understand the divine calculus better.  The first one is just the tones for the divine calculus.

     The next two matrix structures are based upon W. Gordon Brown’s two circle matrixes found in FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION.   However, they are slightly different.  I also have them going counterclockwise while he had them going clockwise.

     The final three are for the Christian Science Textbook, Window of the Open Window, and Christ and Christmas (Sharon’s Rose).

     The only thing I did not mention here is the New Jerusalem artichoke.


[1] I have read that Ezekiel is actually responsible for the five books of Moses.

[2] I feel that the zodiac always had twelve constellations but that Scorpio and Libra were one constellation – originally forming the eagle.  The other constellation, the one missing on the belt today, would have been Ophiucus.  This sort of reminds me of what happened to the Israelite’s Stargate in the book of Numbers!  Ophiucus (the serpent bearer/the Arch Priest) was once part of the belt.  But like all good serpent bearers (or those who are able to handle animal magnetism) they are located in the hub of the wheel (the little open book and its author).  Once Ophiucus is placed in the center hub then Libra and Scorpio (as with Joseph’s two sons) were divided into two constellations (became two stars to the woman’s God-crowned).
