Gevurah

Gevurah is God's mercy, contrary to severity. It is the means by which God unites all of humanity in order to reveal his glory.
That He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory (Romans 9:23) "NKJV"

Without mercy, no one can comprehend God in all his glory. For God is not restricted to a particular religion, some religions, or religion.

Humanity was once alienated from God: even those that are now identifying with religion were not the people of God until God came and called them his people. The Jews, who were the first set of human beings to be called the people of God, were, like the rest of the humanity, alien to God.

Abraham was not the friend of God before God called him out of Babylon and made him his friend. There was no record of Abraham doing anything in Babylon that made God to separate him out of the midst of the Babylonians.
It is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy. (Romans 9:16) "NKJV"

After creating the Jews, God went out to call a new set of people who were the Christians. The Christians were called Gentiles in order to differentiate them from the Jews; although the term Gentiles implied all non-Jewish people.

Like the Jews, God called the Christians (the Gentiles) to himself even though the Christians didn't do anything to deserve it.
That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith (Romans 9:30) "NKJV"

Like he created the Jews and the Christians, God also created the Muslims, the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Taoists, the Philosophers, the Scientists, etc. All these other groups, like the Jews and the Christians, didn't do anything to deserve it.

The history of the world is the story of God restoring mankind back to the humanity he created in the beginning before he sent Adam out of the Garden of Eden. He created different groups in separate places, and after completing his work of creation, he reconciled the different groups into one humanity.

The reconciliation is the summary of every thing God created; the summary is the short work.

Summary = Short Work

God is no longer interested in what people did wrong, but in what they did right. He has decided to unite the world to himself through what humans did right.

The things the unbelievers did right constitute righteousness if they now believe in Jesus, and confess it with the mouths.

For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, because the Lord will make a short work upon the earth.” (Romans 9:28) "NKJV"


Short work: summary of the good things humans did in the history of the earth.

The good things humans did on earth constitute the radiance and the brilliance and the splendour of the cosmos.

Mandala

Mandala is a two dimensional representation of the axis mundi: the junction between the physical and the metaphysical. The physical is man or the earth, the metaphysical is God or heaven (sky), and Mandala is where God and man or heaven (sky) and earth are reconciled.

The universe is the sum of heaven and earth.

Universe = Heaven (Sky) + Earth

A mandala (emphasis on first syllable; Sanskrit मण्डल, maṇḍala – literally "circle") is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe(Wikipedia)
We learnt from the Taiji that the axis mundi represents balance or stability. Therefore the universe of the axis mundi is the orderly universe known as the cosmos, which means that Mandala is a two-dimensional representation of the cosmos.

"mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. (Wikipedia)
Mandala is simply a square and …

Holy of Holies

The Holy of Holies or the Most Holy Place is the Axis Mundi in the form of a brilliant or glowing transparent glass cube described as the holy city, the great city, the holy Jerusalem, the new Jerusalem, and the bride (the wife of the Lamb).

“Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”      (Revelation 21:9) "NIV"
A cube is made up of six square facets, eight vertices and twelve edges. The eight vertices constitute space, the twelve edges constitute time, and the six square facets (or faces) constitute space-time where the three hands of time are reconciled to three dimensional space.

8 Vertices = Space

12 Edges = Time

6 Sides = Space-time

Space (the 8 vertices) is a compass and time (the 12 edges) is a clock, such that the cube (the Holy of Holies) is a compass clock.

The compass is the geographical axis, the clock is the celestial axis, and the cube is the Axis Mundi (the center of the world) where the celestial axis and the geographical axis are connected or u…

The Covenant Box

The Covenant Box (also Ark of the Covenant or Ark of the Testimony) is the square enclosing the circle and the eight-pointed star of the Mandala crested on the floor of the cavern under the Pierced Stone (the Foundation Stone) inside the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Recall that Jesus is the Ish-Man, made up of body and Spirit. The body is the Lamb and the Spirit is God. For instructional purpose, the Lamb is the Pierced Stone at the center of Dome of the Rock.
“People will look at him whom they pierced.” (John 19:37) "GNT"
 Then they will look on Me whom they pierced. (Zechariah 12:10) "NKJV"
The Lamb was pierced on the side as follows:
one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear (John 19:34) "NKJV"
The small hole on the southeastern corner of the Pierced Stone is the injury sustained by Lamb when they pierced him. The foundation stone is called the Pierced Stone because of the injury sustained by Jesus. In other words, Jesus is the rock at the center …
