Isaiah 22 - The Key of David
And the Key of the house of David will I
lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall
shut, and none shall open.
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that
is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that
openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
Spoke 22, Cycle 3
The Key of David is mentioned twice in Scripture, once on Spoke 1 in Isaiah and
once on Spoke 22 in Revelation. This mimics the distribution of the
seven occurrences of First and Last which are found only in Isaiah and
Revelation. It also mimics the distribution of God's declaration that
"heaven is my throne."
Furthermore, the "Key of David" forms a KeyLink connecting Spoke 22 of the
InnerWheel of Isaiah and Spoke 22 of the Bible Wheel:
|KeyLink: The Key of David|
|PIsaiah( 221 ) PBible( 223 )|
This is the ultimate divine integration - the very Key of David itself forming a Spoke 22 KeyLink!
The holy insight into the Mind of God found here causes the sanctified soul to tremble - Isaiah 22.22 declares
that the Lord Jesus Christ has the power to open or shut - that is, he has power to seal and unseal - which
links to the fundamental Spoke 22 theme of
The Seal of God.
Yet there is more. The Key appears in verse 22 of chapter
22 of the the 23rd book of the Bible. Using the alphabetic symbols, we
locate the Key in:
1, 1 ) =
Bible Point Aleph2 Tav1 Tav1!
Aleph - Tav - Tav! This is the verse that contains the Key to the entire Bible! And the Key
itself is a multiple of the Number 22:
(Maphtay'ach, Key) = 528 = 22 x 24
Note that the Key is the product of the number of letters in the Hebrew (22) and Greek (24) alphabets, the basis
of the two
languages specially designed by God to bear the weight of his creative impulse.
If we restrict our
view to the first two dimensions of this point we see that it is located by the Aleph and the Tav,
the letters governing the overall structure of the Bible in the form of the Wheel.
Using modnotation we write:
Isaiah 22 = Bible(23, 22) =
Bible( 2, 1 )
This point is isomorphic to
Genesis 22 - the Genesis of the Cross.
Genesis 22 = Bible(1, 22) = Bible( 1, 1 ).
Alternately, we could use gnotation to write these as geometric points which have the same form
P( , ):
Genesis of the Cross
The Key to the Bible
