There's a strong link between the Number 11 and the Temple and God's Throne. Here is a post I wrote about this a couple years ago:This reminds me of Genesis 11
Also I wonder if this was the period where man gave up the nomadic life and settled down which might connect to the word place in Micah's (spoke 11) verse highlighted above.
Also the Temple or place of God is mentioned in the 11th book 1Kings.
And this fits perfectly with the chapter on Spoke 11 in the Bible Wheel book called The Throne of Glory.As I was thinking about the symbolic meaning of the cubic New Jerusalem, I recalled that the Holy of Holies, also known as the "Oracle" that resided in the center of the Temple of Solomon, was cubic 20 x 20 x 20:
1 Kings 6:20 And the oracle in the forepart was twenty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in breadth, and twenty cubits in the height thereof: and he overlaid it with pure gold; and so covered the altar which was of cedar. 21 So Solomon overlaid the house within with pure gold: and he made a partition by the chains of gold before the oracle; and he overlaid it with gold. 22 And the whole house he overlaid with gold, until he had finished all the house: also the whole altar that was by the oracle he overlaid with gold.And why did God use a cube for these two symbols of His Holy Place? The first thing that comes to mind is the perfect symmetry of the cube which also is noted by most commentators.
Yet there is more. These symmetric symbols are symmetrically placed in God's Word! The Oracle in 1 Kings (Spoke 11) and the New Jerusalem in Revelation (Spoke 22) are the only cubic structures defined in the Bible. They are both defined as the place where God dwells. And now with the revelation of the large-scale symmetric structure of God's Word in the form of the Wheel, we discover that God placed these two cubic structures symmetrically on the Bible Wheel. The Oracle is found in 1 Kings (Spoke 11) and the New Jerusalem is found in Reveleation (Spoke 22). Thus, these two cubes are found diametrically opposed on the eleventh diameter. This means that these two symmetrical objects are symmetrically placed in the symmetrical revelation of God's Word!
It must be remembered that this insight is possible only because we have displayed God's Word in the symmetrical form of the Wheel.
And this brings us back to our meditation upon God's creation. Why are planets spherical? It is because of the laws that God used in the design of His universe. The spherical form is the most compact way to arrange all the matter of the planet. It minimizes the energy of configuration. Exactly the same principles apply to the structure of His Word. The Bible Wheel is the most compact way to represent the 66 books. It is perfectly symmetrical, like a circle. And when we study the detailed design, we find that the two ultimate symmetric symbols - the cubic Holy of Holies and the cubic New Jerusalem - align with perfect symmetry on the Eleventh Diameter!
I have much more to say. I will write more as time permits.
