Numbers, Ezekiel, Galatians
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is
the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son,
nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that
is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the
sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed
the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
The Fourth Commandment
Persecution Ends, the Church Rests
The Decalogue was written by the very "Finger of God." Its supernatural alphanumeric structure has
been documented in The Holographic Decalog and related articles.
The Ten Commandments govern vast structures in both Scripture and History, as seen with
particular clarity in the correlation between the Fourth Century and the Fourth Commandment.
It was in the Fourth Century that Constantine saw a Cross of Light
and the word "In this sign conquer" after which he converted to Christiantity and
The Day of the Sun
Though there is some evidence that Sunday Worship had been practiced since the First Century as
the "Lord's Day" in honour of the Resurrection, it was not until the Fourth Century that
Sunday became a legal holiday by the
Edict of Constantine in 321 AD.
It is also significant that God gave
Sabbath was as a Sign, as it is written
in Ezekiel (Spoke 4, Cycle 2):
Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and
them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.
This then links to the Fourth Day, where we find the first occurrence of the word "sign" as the first of
four temporal reasons for the creation of the Sun, Moon, and Stars:
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
The relation between the idea of a Sign or Mark and the Number 4 is extremely profound. It runs through
everything from Genesis 4, to Galatians on Spoke 4, to
Circumcision in Romans 4,
and even in the course of
History with the Sign of the Cross given to convert Constantine.
We have therefore a multithreaded integration of the Fourth Day of Creation (when
the Sun was made for a Sign), the Fourth Commandment (Sabbath Rest which was given for a Sign)
and the Fourth Century when Constantine was given the Sign of a Cross of Light and later made
Sunday a legal holiday, mandating the cessation of labours and selling.
Constantine's pronouncemnt of freedom of worship for all in the 'Edict' of Milan (313)
was soon reflected in the buildings used for Christian worship. The Emperor himself built a
new church in Rome which symbolized the dawn of a new era. This Church of St. John Lateran was
and in all the main centres of the Empire this style of church seems rapidly to
have replaced the house-church."
