                                                         The Measuring ROD

                                         ( Under Construction )

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the
altar, and them that worship therein.  But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is
given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.And I will give power unto my
two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the
two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

In other words, the angel of the Lord in Revelation will give our two witnesses, our two Christian prophets, a reed or rod. And with
this measuring rod they are to measure the 'Temple of God'. But what is the length of this measuring rod, and WHY, and what is the
length of the Temple and WHY is that important ?

Well first of all, this measuring rod is NOT the furlong of Revelation 21, because we can't carry around a golden furlong of 660 feet.
The angel can measure with this, but us humans obviously can't. Besides the whole Temple area of Solomon, Herod and the 3rd
Temple, won't be as large as the huge Heavenly City ... of New Jerusalem. It's area with the court would probably be 792 feet square,
a 1/10,000 miniature of the Heavenly City floor plan.

So what measure would we use.... simple the ancient ROD.... which was 5.5 yards or 16.5 feet or 11 cubits. This we could handle

933.586 Rods or Poles equals
separated by 1/3 = 311.195 = 5134.7175 feet

The accepted definition of a Pole (also known as the Rod or Perch is 5.5 yeards one 320 part of a mile 198 inches. The kilometer -
one thousand meters or one ten thousandth of a quadrant of the earth's surface - when translated into English measure is 39,370
inches and the square root of 39,370 = 198.41874

There is an ancient Chinese measure called the Kung (or official) Ch'ih, the length of 14.14 inches or to within about one twentieth of
an inch, the square root of of 198.41874

The suggested origin of Professor Thorm's Megalithic yard is the ancient Sumerian Shushi given as 2.75 feet, This is 33 inches or
exactly the one sixth division of a pole

Shushi times 6 equals 1 pole    (Radius versus circumference of a circle)
Kung Sh'ih equals the square root of the pole and the .....

Pole is the square root of the Kilometer

IE... a measure apparrently not established until the late 18th century.

What does this all indicate, well one the rod of 16.5 feet is not a random measure but corelates exactly and directly to the Earth's
diameter, as only an angel or the Lord would know. Why, because ancient man could not comprehend the length and breath of the
Lord's created Earth. This the same reasoning why man couldn;t have designed a concave indentation into the Great Pyramid unless
the designer had heavenly insights far beyond the scope of normal man.

And 16.5 feet equals 11 cubits, which would be useful in measuring distances as the Lord's CUBE or Holy of Holies was 10 cubits
high, wide and long, with a construction wall of one cubit. And as we found out 11 is Daarth which is the unseen sphere that is used
in magnifying after the creation of 10 to the numbers between 11 and 100... This being the power of 10 to the second power.

Number 11 and Tree of Life

And 40  poles together would make a furlong, and that relates right back to the amount of work a man can plow in one day...an
ACRE. (SEE
Acre )))

Draw graphics of Solomon's Temple right angles, etc....  11 cubits is the width of Solomon's Temple Porch, upon which the two
Pillars or witnesses stand...and behind them are the rooms for the priests and priestesses , 144,000 in the Holy Place.

Therefore  6 times 12 = 72 shushi's = 2376 inches = 198 feet = 60.35 meters
