|Structure of the Axis Mundi. The blue square is the earth (Israel) or the four cardinal points,|
and the yellow light cone is the sky (heaven) or the celestial axis.
Axis Mundi (also world line, world axis, cosmic axis, world pillar and center of the world) is the point where the celestial axis is reconciled to the four cardinal point of the earth. In other words, it is the bridge between God and man, a line of communication between heaven and earth, and a ladder reaching from the earth to the sky.
A line of communication was established between Jacob and God. Jacob was the earth, God was the sky (heaven), and the line of communication between them was the axis mundi.
He dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. (Genesis 28:12) "NKJV"He: Jacob
Ladder: Axis Mundi
A ladder was set up on the earth: the axis mundi is a ladder connecting heaven (the sky) and the earth
Angels of God: messengers of God
God had direct communication with Jacob immediately the axis mundi was set up,
The stood above it and said: “I am the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. (Genesis 28:13) "NKJV"
The LORD stood above it: God was in the sky (heaven) above
The land: the earth
The land on which you lie: Jacob was lying on the earth
Therefore God was the sky and Jacob was the earth. A bridge was set to connect Jacob on earth to God in the sky; the bridge was the ladder - the axis mundi.
The land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendant: God said that Jacob will possess the earth
Here is God giving the earth to Jacob:
Your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. (Genesis 28:14) "NKJV"
The west and the east, to the north and the south: the four cardinal points of the earth
You shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south: Jacob will occupy the four cardinal points of the earth.
From that moment Jacob understood that the four cardinal points are the gates from earth to the sky (heaven).
And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!” (Genesis 28:17) "NKJV"Jacob is Israel,
“Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.” (Genesis 32:28) "NKJV"
Therefore, Israel is the gate of heaven, and the four cardinal points are the four sides of Israel. In other words, the earth is Israel, and the four cardinal points of the earth are the four directions of Israel.
Recall that God said, " in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
Jacob had twelve sons who were the ancestors of the twelve tribes of Israel. Since the earth is Israel, the whole world is the twelve tribes of Israel.
The axis mundi is the new Jerusalem and Israel is the gate into the new Jerusalem. Since Jacob is the sum of his twelve sons, the twelve tribes of Israel are the twelve gates of Israel.
The ladder connecting Jacob (Israel) to God is the wall of the new Jerusalem.
She had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel (Revelation 21:12) "NKJV"
Wall: the bridge or ladder from earth to heaven
Twelve gates: the twelve sons of Jacob or the twelve tribes of Israel
All people on earth, irrespective of religious affiliation, tribe, nation, race, language, and geographical location, are now the twelve tribes of Israel.
Human population on earth is divided into four groups of three tribes, such that there are three tribes in the north, three tribes in the east, three tribes in the west and three tribes in the south.
Three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west. (Revelation 21:13) "NKJV"
Three gates: three tribes
The twelve tribes of Israel are the twelve hours of the clock. The first twelve hours round the clock is the night sky (sunset to sunrise), and the next twelve hours round the clock is the day sky (sunrise to sunset). This means that the sky where God dwells is time.
Since the earth is space and the sky is time, the axis mundi is space-time.
Space-time is the light cone (the city of light or the new Jerusalem).
