UK — Prophetic Significance of 222 Playing Out in the News — 1 Comment

  1. 100 years ago the Wanamaker cross was gifted to the monarchy and stands at the head of the Queen’s coffin.  Note the scripture verse from Isaiah 2:4 (2-2-2)

    “And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.”

    The one used most often in processions at church festivals and special services was given by Rodman Wanamaker of the USA, and first used on Christmas Eve 1922. This is made from ivory and silver gilt, and adorned with a series of panels of beaten gold and sapphires. On one side, the panels show the Crucifixion with representations of the Annunciation, Nativity, Resurrection and Ascension on the arms of the cross. On the other side is Our Lord in Glory, with groups of apostles on the cross arms. Smaller panels show emblems of the Evangelists and figures of angels.

    The cross was re-gilded and new ivory inlaid in 1964, with 72 diamonds added. It was designed by Walter Stoye and made by the firm of Barkentin & Krall. The staff is made from silver gilt, and Latin inscriptions on it record the gift by Wanamaker and the Biblical quote, ‘Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more’. This ‘Cross of Westminster’ is also used in Westminster Hall at the head of the coffin when monarchs and others lie in state there.
