Mountain In The
<1>The meaning of
in the Bible is given in chapter 2 of
Daniel in the
dream of King Nebuchadnezzar. In verse 35, it is described how a
stone will smite the image in the king's dream and consume it, and
how, "...the stone that smote the image became a great
mountain, and filled the whole earth" (Daniel 2:35).
<2>In the interpretation of the dream, the
meaning of the stone which destroyed the image (earthly kingdom) is
given in verse 44:
And in the days of these kings [the last
ten kings symbolized as ten toes of the image] shall the
heaven set up
a kingdom [mountain
which filled the earth], which shall never be destroyed: and
the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but
it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms
[as the stone did to the image], and it shall stand for
<3>So the stone (symbol of truth) will come
and destroy the untrue set-ups symbolized by the image. <4>The
stone will become a great
mountain and fill the
whole earth. This
mountain is the
Kingdom which will be set up by the
heaven and will last
<5>Therefore the symbolic meaning of
mountain in the
Bible is the coming of the
Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth, "and filled the whole earth." This
Kingdom will be directed by the
Elected Ones, not
by others, "and the kingdom shall not be left to other people,...and
it shall stand for ever."
Similarity Of The Shape Of A Mountain To A Triangle Upward ():
<6>The shape of a mountain, especially when
it is standing by itself, is similar to a triangle upward ().
As it is revealed in
The Greatest Sign and is described in our writings, the
triangle upward is the symbol for organizational structure.
<7>In the organizational structure, the president is at the
top of the structure and then comes one or more vice-presidents,
department heads, and so on:
<8>If a border is put around this
organizational structure, we will have a triangle upward ().
in the Bible this structure has been symbolized by a mountain. The
mountain is one of the most stable structures on earth, as is the
organizational structure of the
Heaven On Earth (KOHOE), which has God Himself at the very top
as the King of the kings of the universe and earth.
or organizational structure of the Kingdom Of
is called Mount Zion.
<11>However, as it is revealed in
Sign, the Kingdom Of Heaven consists of two triangles, one
and another downward ()
merged together ()
(star of David). The triangle downward is the symbol of justice and
control. Therefore, there is a counterpart for
Mount Zion as justice and control through organizational
structure. <12>This is symbolized as
Mount Zion and
Zion together symbolize the Kingdom Of
Heaven (God) on earth ().
