Song of Solomon, Acts, Revelation
Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool:
where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
Isaiah 66 (vs. 1)
The privilege of the Christian is not merely to know, but rather to be the
ultimate purpose of God's creation. Why did God create the heaven and the
earth? The answer thrills the heart: God created the universe as his own dwelling place, not of dead stones,
but of living stones. To create his living Bride.
This adds great depth to the God-given metaphors for the
consummation of creation found in the Song of Solomon and
the Book of Revelation on Spoke 22 of the Bible Wheel. Note that this theme also manifests in the
chapter sequence of Matthew, with Matthew 22
opening with words "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king,
which made a marriage for his son ..."
The verse above occurs twice in Scripture. It originates in Isaiah on Spoke 1
and is quoted in Acts 7.49 on Spoke 22. 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 the
Key of David.
Furthermore - like the Key of David - it forms a KeyLink connecting Spoke 22 of the
InnerWheel of Isaiah and Spoke 22 of the Bible Wheel:
|KeyLink: God's Throne|
|Isaiah 66Book 44 (Acts)|
Using we can represent Isaiah 66 as PIsaiah.
If we now also use modnotation to represent the Number 66 as 223, we can
write Isaiah 66 = PIsaiah(223), which shows how Chapter 66 lies
on Spoke 22 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah.
Thus the link between Isaiah 66 and the Book of Acts (Book 44) can be clearly displayed as
a Spoke 22 KeyLink:
|Spoke 22 KeyLink: The Lord's Throne|
|PIsaiah( 223 ) PBible( 222 )|
A visual representation should help make this clear. The red circle represents Book 44 (Acts)
and the blue circle represents Chapter 66 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah.
The idea of the Throne represents God's presence in the world (represented by the
Footstool), thereby fulfilling the eternal Promise to "dwell with men" and
completing the great work of God. This is the consumation of Creation.
