Spoke 11

Matthew 11 chain 1 Kings

For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias [Elijah], which was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Inner Cycle: Spoke 11, Cycle 1
(Matthew 11.13)

And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

Bible Wheel: Spoke 11, Cycle 12
(I Kings 17.1f)

The Prophet Elijah first appears in the eleventh book of the Bible, I Kings. This correlates precisely with his debut in the eleventh chapter of Matthew, as quoted above. We have the link:

1st Occurrence: Elijah
Matthew 11chainBible 11

Exactly the same phenomenon is seen in the Inner Wheel of Revelation and the Inner Cycle of Romans, where Elijah first appears by name in Romans 11, and the Two Prophets with the Powers of Elijah appear in Revelation 11.

The Lord Jesus continued in his explanation of the identity of John the Baptist, saying (Matthew 11.7f):

And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.

The association of John/Elijah with the idea of a "reed" also manifests in Revelation 11. COntinuing in Matthew 11.13:

For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

This verse integrates with the geometry of Scripture. Two Numbers are associated with Elijah: 11 and 17. Both of these Numbers index his first appearance in PBible(11,17), while his last appearance in the Old Testament is in Malachi on Spoke 17, wherein the Coming of the Lord is prophesied. This is further confirmed from the mouth of the Lord Jesus:

For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

These words are from Malachi on Spoke 17.

The Yoke of Christ

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11

While studying the link between the Eleventh Century and Spoke 11, I discovered that the impostion of a "heavy yoke" on the people caused the division in Solomon's Kingdom after his death. This correlates with the Great Schism of the Church in the Eleventh Century, which also involved a "heavy yoke" imposed by the Bishop of Rome. This double appearance of the "yoke" in relation to the Number 11 caused me to think on the famous saying of Christ from Matthew 11 which are in in stark contrast to the yoke recomended by Rehoboam's younger counsellors in I Kings:

And he said unto them, What counsel give ye that we may answer this people, who have spoken to me, saying, Make the yoke which thy father did put upon us lighter? And the young men that were grown up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou speak unto this people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it lighter unto us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father's loins.

We have a near KeyLink between Matthew 11 and I Kings based on the simple set (light*, yoke) [Verify], which selects only the two passages quoted above, and the parallel passage in 2 Chronicles 10.10:

Thematic Link Set (Light*, Yoke)
PBible( 11 ) chain PMatthew( 11 )

This is the power of the correlation between History and the bwheel: I discovered this strong thematic link between I Kings and the Inner Cycle of Matthew based on the connection between I Kings and the Eleventh Century. Such is the awesome power of God's revelation!
