The Fourth Day of Creation

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 1) signs, and for 2) seasons, and for 3) days, and 4) years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Fourth Day of Creation (Genesis 1:14ff)

Four Quadrants of TimeGod revealed the key to the archetypal patterns of the whole Bible in the ordered sets of the Seven Days of Creation, the Ten Commandments, and the Seven Seals of Revelation. The patterns are based on the obvious, intuitive, and universal meanings of the numbers that correspond to their positions in the lists. They are also fundamentally geometrical. We saw this on Spoke 2 where God based everything on the ideas of duality, division, image, and reflection (BW book pg 144). Here on the Fourth Day He simply doubled (2 x 2 = 4) the duality of the Number 2 to form the fourfold division of the Circle of Time. The structure of this Day is profoundly self-reflective. God doubly reiterated its connection to the Number 4; once by giving four purposes for the objects He created and again in the fourfold nature of those very purposes! The fourfold cross cross is itself the essence of a sign (ot) and the seasons, days, and years all naturally fall into four quadrants as shown in the diagram. They are the temporal equivalents of the spatial division represented by the Four Directions which are uniquely emphasized on Spoke 4 in the fourfold camp of Numbers (Cycle 1) and the fourfold Temple of Ezekiel (Cycle 2). This then links to the fourfold nature of physical reality the space-time continuum consisting of three spatial and one temporal dimension (3 . 1 = 4), as it is written: "In the beginning (time) God created the heaven and the earth (three-dimensional space)." It is for these rea-sons, and many more, that Jews and Christians have always understood the Number 4 as the symbol of physicality, extension, and the world. The coherent integration of the Fourth Day with the rest of the Seven Days must also be borne in mind (BW book pg 49). Yet all of this is but a hint of the infinite depth of Wisdom God displayed on Spoke 4.

The Fourth Day contains the first mention of the word sign (ot, BW book pg 88), derived from the Capstone Signature ΑΩ/את. Its second appearance is in Genesis 4 where it is used in conjunction with the first birth, the first death, the first mention of blood (KeyWord dahm the biblical symbol of death = the Fourth Seal), and the first mention of a door. It figures prominently in the design of the camp in the wilderness where the four leading tribes were stationed with "the ensign (ot) of their father's house" at the four cardinal points around the Tabernacle (Num 2:1, pg 173). Its final occurrence is in Ezekiel, where God linked it to both the Fourth Commandment and the events of the Fourth Book:

Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt, and brought them into the wilderness. And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign (ot) between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them. But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness [Num 14:9ff]: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.

Ezekiel 20:10ff (Spoke 4, Cycle 2)

The "sabbaths they greatly polluted" links directly to the first violation of the Fourth Commandment which is recorded in the Fourth Book (Num 15:32).
