Spoke 4

Psalm 48 chain Isaiah 48

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

Psalm 48.1f

Hear ye this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of the LORD, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness. For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon the God of Israel; The LORD of hosts is his name.

Isaiah 48.1f

The theme of the foursquare Holy City housing the foursquare Temple of God is dominant on Spoke 4 of the Bible Wheel and Inner Wheels and Cycles. (cf. Cross in the Wilderness, Foursquare Temple) This is, of course, entirely logical since buildings are naturally foursquare. But the integration of the numerical content of Scripture with its geometric structure in the form of the Wheel is beyond all logical explanation. Simply stated, there are no other possiblities - we are beholding an everlasting blazing miracle available for any who has eyes to see. Yet this is but one of the ten thousand proofs revealed in the Bible Wheel!

The highlighted words (Lord, God, City, Holy/Holiness) form a KeySet between Isaiah 48 and Psalm 48:

City of Refuge

3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge. 4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together. 5 They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.

The Cities of Refuge are linked to Spokes 4 and 6. This has to do with the connection between Death (4th Seal) and Murder (6th Commandment). Thus we find God gave the ordinance for the cities of refuge in Numbers (Book 4), whereas they were actually distributed in Joshua (Book 6) after crossing the Jordon. The distribution of the land to the the 12 tribes follows the same pattern. The borders of the inheritance are delineated by God Himself on Spoke 4 (once in Numbers and again in Ezekiel), whereas the was actually distributed in Joshua (cf. Borders).

The theme of refuge also appears in Isaiah 4, and the theme of dwelling in safety and peace is part of a significant KeyLink between Psalm 4, Isaiah 26, and Ezekiel.

Pain of Birth

6 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.

This links directly to the primary theme of Birth that dominates Spoke 4. It originates in Genesis 4 and manifests in Galatians 4.19 (cf. Birth of Christ in Us):

My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you. Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?

The word translated as "formed" is morpheo - which is the root of the English "form." The permutation of the consonants (M-F to F-M) is not at all uncommon in linguistic transformations. This corresponds to the Hebrew yatsar, (cf. Perfect Peace) which is deeply integrated with the great theme of the birth and the imposition of form - in particular, the formation of the soul.

The City of Our Lord

7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind. 8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.

This reiterates the theme found in the opening verses above.

God's Name

9 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple. 10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness. 11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.

God's Name of Four Letters - the Tetragrammaton, pic (YHVH) - is given special prominence on Spoke 4. This is manifests in the KeyPhrase "know that I am the Lord" that characterizes the Book of Ezekiel and the special care God proclaims for his Name therein. Exactly the same theme is seen in Isaiah 48 on Spoke 4 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah.

Mark ye well her Buklwarks

12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof. 13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.

This verse forms a particularly intriguing link to the great vision of the Foursquare Temple God gave to Ezekiel (cf. Mark Ye Well).

Our God Even Unto Death

14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

This final verse of Psalm 48 links to one of the primary themes of Spoke 4. The first death is recorded in Genesis 4. Death is the theme of the Fourth Seal and it relates to the Fourth Commandment (Sabbath Rest). It is a dominant theme of Psalm 4. Even the word death is spelt Mem = 40 Vav = 6 Tav = 400. Death also is a dominant theme in Isaiah 26.
