Sixteen Prophets in Four Squares

The four sides of the square representing the two dimensional structure of the new Jerusalem are the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Four Gospels = 4

Considering that the new Jerusalem is a binary system, the square of the four sides is equal to 16 sides.

New Jerusalem = 4 × 4 = 16

Each side is a direction on the Bagua Square, and the sixteen sides are the sixteen directions of the 16-point compass rose. A direction is a prophet, such that the 16 directions are the following 16 prophets or 16 books of the Old Testament:


In 3-D, the square is equal to a cube. And in 4-D, the square is equal to a tesseract. A cube has eight vertices and the tesseract, comprised of two cubes, has 16 vertices that are the 16 directions of the 16-point compass rose.

Since the sixteen vertices of the tesseract are sixteen directions of the compass, the sixteen prophets listed above are the sixteen vertices of the tesseract. This is how the prophets are brought into the holy city.

Recall that the compass rose is a rose flower symbolic of love and affection. This means that the world is no longer condemned by the prophesies of the sixteen prophets. Rather, the world is blessed by the blessings pronounced by the prophets.

Isaiah said, "I will say to the prisoners, 'Go free!' and to those who are in darkness, 'Come out to the light!'" (Isaiah 49:9)

He also said, "They will never be hungry or thirsty. Sun and desert heat will not hurt them,   for they will be led by one who loves them. He will lead them to springs of water." (Isaiah 49:10)

Jeremiah said, "I will restore the people of Israel to their land. They will eat the food that grows on Mount Carmel and in the region of Bashan, and they will eat all they want of the crops that grow in the territories of Ephraim and Gilead." (Jeremiah 50:19)
