### The Cross

The Cross is the Axis-Mundi (the Holy of Holies) formed by the intersection of the celestial axis with the geographical axis.

A cardinal point in the celestial axis is the Blessed Trinity, and the four directions of the Blessed Trinity are the four celestial cardinal directions or cardinal points.

In mathematics, cardinal directions or cardinal points are the six principal directions or points along the x-, y- and z-axis of three-dimensional space. - Wikipedia
The six principal directions or points are the six wings of the hexagram (the six-pointed star). The hexagram is the famous Star of David found on the flag of the Jewish State of Israel.
The portrayal of a Star of David on the flag of the State of Israel is a widely acknowledged symbol of the Jewish people and of Judaism. - Wikipedia

The x-, y- and z-axis are physical manifestations of the three persons constituting the Blessed Trinity. The Blessed Trinity is equal to the three persons in one God, and each person is a gate into the Holy City such that the three persons in God are three gates in each of the four celestial directions.

Blessed Trinity = A Celestial Direction
= A Celestial Cardinal Point
= 3 Persons in God

3 Persons in God = Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (y-axis, x-axis, and z-axis)
= 3 Gates

First Gate = Father (First Person)
Second Gate = Son (Second Person)
Third Gate = Holy Spirit (Third Person)

The four cardinal points of the geographical axis are North (N), East (E), West (W), and South (S).

The celestial axis is the centre of heaven, the geographical axis is the centre of the earth, and the cross is the Axis-Mundi or the Holy of Holies where heaven and earth meet. It is the midpoint between heaven and earth or the ladder connecting heaven and earth. This means that the cross is the stairway from earth to heaven and from heaven to earth.

The cross is described as follows:
There were three gates on each side: three on the east; three on the south, three on the north, and three on the west. (Revelation 21:13) "GNT"

Three Gates = Blessed Trinity

On each side: on each cardinal direction

Three on the east: the Blessed Trinity reconciled to the east of the earth
Three on the south: the Blessed Trinity reconciled to the south of the earth
Three on the north: the Blessed Trinity reconciled to the north of the earth
Three on the west: the Blessed Trinity reconciled to the west of the earth

Through this reconciliation, the cross is wrapped round the globe, and the earth is conquered by the twelve tribes of Israel.

The Perfect Square, made up of the square (the holy city) and the four geographical cardinal points, is the true picture of the Axis-Mundi. Each side of the square, corresponding to a geographical cardinal point, is the Blessed Trinity (the three gates) of heaven in that direction. People on earth could enter into heaven through any of the twelve gates distributed round the four cardinal points.

Remember that the length of the square is the Old Testament and the breadth is the New Testament; this means that the Holy Bible, made up of the Old Testament and the New Testament, is the door into heaven.

It is also important to remember that the length is the Father (the Eastern Orthodox church) and the breadth is the Son (the Catholic church). This means that the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church are the first and second gates into heaven. The third gate is the Pentecostal Church.

First Gate (Father) = Eastern Orthodox Church
Second Gate (Son) = Catholic Church
Third Gate (Holy Spirit) = Pentecostal church

These three Churches constitute the Blessed Trinity, and whoever did not come into the Kingdom of God through any of these three gates did not enter through the door. The door is the Blessed Trinity, which is made up of the three Churches or the three heavens.

Jesus said, "I am telling you the truth: the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber. (John 10:1) "GNT"

Sheep Pen = the Kingdom of God
The Gate = the Blessed Trinity

Jesus is the one who came in with the knowledge of the Blessed Trinity:
The man who goes in through the gate is the Shepherd of the sheep. (John 10:2) "GNT"

The Shepherd = Jesus
= the Man
Sheep = God's People

The man who goes in through the gate is the Shepherd of the sheep: the man who came with the knowledge of the Blessed Trinity is the Shepherd of God's people.

The Shepherd is here, and he is calling out to his sheep. He identifies them; they know his voice, and they will respond to his call and follow him to the peaceful future.
The gatekeeper opens the gate for him; the sheep hear his voice as he calls his own sheep by name, and he leads them out. When he has brought them out, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice. (John 10:3-4) "GNT"
Jesus says:
I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me - (John 10:11) "NIV"
