 7 Interesting Facts on the Cube: The Geometric Treasure of God

In the Book of Revelation, chapter 21:16 (kjv), the New Jerusalem is described as a foursquare cube, as was the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Solomon.

What properties does the Cube possess that represent the characteristics of the nature of God as given in the Hebrew and Christian Bible? I analyzed geometric properties of the cube and applicable scriptures to come to the following seven fascinating discoveries.

1. A cube has sides that are all equal to each other. God’s ways are equal- Ezekiel 18:25.

2. A cube fills space equally, without leaving gaps. God fills Heaven and Earth- Jeremiah 23:24.

3. A cube has six sides. God created everything in six days- Exodus 20:11.

4. A cube is 90 degrees all around, representing righteousness, perfection and uprightness of heart. As is God- Psalm 119:137. SPECIAL NOTE: The Platonic Solids can be broken down to the 90 degree angle!

5. A cube has 12 edges, representing the 12 months of a year, 12 zodiac signs, and 12 Tribes of Israel- Revelation 21:12.

6. A cube is three dimensions, and three square faces meet at a single vertex. And one can only view three sides of a cube at any one time. Thus, God is said to be Trinity- 1 John 5:7 KJV.

7. Most fascinating, a cube has hidden and dual measures (lock for key???) inside it, such that you can find a star tetrahedron, hexagram, octahedron, and lots of other things, at different points, lines, tilts, dissections, intersections etc. I think it profitable to remember that the Holy of Holies Cube is where God’s presence was experienced for the Israelites.

Is this why a hexagram (a tilted 3D cube can be a 2D hexagon with a hidden hexagram AT THE SAME TIME!) came to represent Israel as the Star of David, because it can represent that which is experienced inside the Cube???

The nature of God conceals many treasures and secrets according to Proverbs 25:2 and Colossians 2:3!

Glorious and Most Rare
Meditate the Measures
Of Triangle, Circle, and Square!

Never let anyone tell you that it ain’t hip to be square 🙂

    Thanks for sharing that, Nate.

    Square, Triangle and Circle. Looks like the Sacred Symbols of Freemasonry…among Others…although I’ve never been a Freemason.

    The Square is obvious. The Triangle and Circle are both represented and created by a Compass.

    The Compass can be opened wider to create a larger circle…which is symbolic of our individual growth and understanding of Absolute Truth.

    I like how you chose to make 7 interesting points about the Cube…the Square and Compass both look like the number 7…depending on how you look at it. 🙂

    What comes after 7? 8! Infinity. Is that what happens when the Compass must be opened All the way…into a Straight Line…just to create a “Circle” large enough to contain all Absolute Truth?

    Thanks, Nate and Jenny.

    Thanks so much guys. Yes, JC1117, there is much you can do with square and compass. It’s fitting that a Masonic ‘G’ is placed between them, for ‘G’ is the seventh letter of the English Alphabet as well!

    I also find the Seal of Melchizedek very interesting….Maybe later, I’ll do an article on Circles and Spheres, but the Cube is the one I’m most familiar with, and it’s my favorite!
