Allness or Foursquareness in God’s
Symmetry and Balance (4)
Foursquareness (fourfold in symmetry) is a term not commonly used in the English language. Digging into the term’s meaning and implications, one will find unique attributes to God’s creation, order and purpose of all things. A perfect, geometrical square is equal in its length, height, and depth. It’s design is very specific and on purpose. It is not designed in a random, odd, haphazard or unequal way. Symmetry has balance, structure and is of intelligent design and purpose. The object or subject being referenced to is made with forethought and not afterthought. It exists not by accident, but by plan. A perfect square is symmetrical enough that it will stand on its own and not fall over, or fail. It is so balanced in design that it is equal and perfect, no matter from which angle or perspective you look at it. This is a somewhat long definition or description of foursquarenss, but I believe it represents an honest attempt to describe the intelligence behind God’s purpose of having something represented by ‘four’. Foursquareness is also a doubling of something (2×2). Or, two squared (for those with a mathematical point of view). A double of a double. Uniformity and reinforcement of strength is implied, another equal measure of purpose and intent, and a double representation of something for added significance or importance. I believe, this long definition, can be truthfully and accurately applied to anything referenced in the Bible as having a fourfold attribute from God’s creation.
Four (4) or foursquarness of balance and symmetry can also represents a doubling of a double or (2×2=4). Two (2) signifies God’s solid confirmation of a matter, doubling this suggest an added or extra measure of equal weight. Is there anyplace in Revelation that suggests this definition of doubling of a double is true? Revelation 18:6 states, “Reward her (Babylon) even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled to her double.” Notice that this description represents three (3) doubles of two (2). (3×2=6). Six (6) is the number of evil. Since she is the great whore and extremely evil, she will be repaid six (6) times the wrath.
Four-fold Seal Wraths Poured out on Earth:
- Great earthquake. (Rev. 6:12).
- Sun becomes black. (Rev. 6:12).
- Moon becomes blood. (Rev. 6:12).
- Stars in heaven fall to the earth. (Rev. 6:13).
Commentary: When Christ opens the sixth book seal, natural calamities are unleashed on the earth and heavens (not heaven). The Seal Wraths, Trumpet Wraths and Vial Wraths all alternate between affecting men and the earth. In the case of wraths being poured out onto the earth, they increase in severity and intensity going from least (seal wraths) to greatest (vial wraths). There is a very consistent pattern of affliction to the sun, moon and stars; and to the earth, it’s seas, fresh water systems (rivers, fountains and lakes), the foliage and the earth’s internal structural integrity. God afflicts man through his wrath poured out on the earth in several substantial ways. Many peoples of the earth rely on the seas to provide them with their livelihoods and food. Other areas of the earth are extremely dependent on fresh water systems for drinking water and related uses like irrigation for crops and water for livestock. Elsewhere, peoples are dependent on grasses and crops for feeding not only humans but livestock. Without the sun, crops will die and ultimately so will livestock. God is in effect, causing severe stress on earth’s life-supporting systems for men. In many areas of the world today, drought makes it extremely difficult to eak out any form of subsistence. This will get worse. God causes these general calamities to affect the earth, in order to get evil mankind’s attention during the Tribulation. At this point, God is ‘shouting’ at evil mankind, through natural means.
