Spoke 3

John 3 chain God's Spirit

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

John 3

Born of the Spirit

The integration of the Hebrew Alphabet with the internal structure of the eternal Godhead is one of the clearest signs of its divine design. The correspondence between the first three letters with the three Persons of Blessed Trinity is perfect:

God the Father God the Son God the Holy Spirit
Aleph KeyWords Beyt KeyWords Gimel KeyWords
Av (Father)
Ahavah (Love)
Echad (One)
Ben (Son)
Boker (Firstborn)
Barak (Blessing)
Gomel (Abundant Giver)
Geel (Exceeding Joy)
Gedulah (Majesty)

The lack of a specific title like Father or Son for the Holy Spirit cohere's with His "background" role as the Light guiding the believer to the Father through the Son. In this sense, He plays the role of the Friend of the Bridegroom.

Defeat of the Serpent

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

The great Spoke 3 theme of Sin and its sorrowful effects begins with the Fall in Genesis 3, with the specific appearance of the beguiling serpent, which forms a KeyLink to II Corinthians on Spoke 3. But true to the great mercy of God, sin no sooner entered the world than the Promise of the Redeemer, the Seed of the Woman declared in the protoevangel:

And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel

The "bruising" of the serpents head represents his defeat at Calvary, where also the bruising of Christ's heel was was both literally and metaphorically fulfilled.
