Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Revelation 1:11 (Spoke 22, Cycle 3)

The alphabetic integration of the 22 chapters of Revelation forms the finishing capstone to the divine design of the Holy Bible. It is truly astounding to behold the countless links between its chapters with elements from the corresponding Spokes of the Bible Wheel. God ensured that it would be impossible to miss the integration of Revelation with the Hebrew alphabet. In the first chapter of the last book He idenitified Himself as Alpha and Omega, the first and last letters of the Greek Alphabet. These letters correspond to Aleph and Tav, the first and last of the 22 Hebrew letters. It is therefore impossible for any intelligent reader to fail to suspect an alphabetic correlation with the 22 chapters (see The Capstone Signature of God's Word).

Unfortunately, most people have been taught that God had absolutely nothing to do with the overall structure of His Own Word. Even those who readily admit the full inspiration of the actual words of Scripture usually stumble over the idea that God had a hand on every detail down to the level of its chapter and verse divisions. Everyone is taught that they are "arbitrary divisions" as if some drunkard put on a blindfold and just threw darts at the Bible. There two errors here. First, things that are arbitrary from a human persective are not necessarily arbitrary from God's point of view, for indeed, the "lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD" (Proverbs 16:33). The second error is that it is false. The chapter structures of the two great Inner Wheels - Isaiah and Revelation - are largely self-parsing in accordance with their content. In the case of Revelation, the primary outline is found in the phrase "And I saw" which is found 24 times in Revelation in the KJV. Of these 24 occurrences, exactly half (12) are found in the first or second verse after a chapter break. This is solid statistical proof that the overall pattern of the chapter breaks is not arbitrary. There are many other structural patterns in Revelation that correlate (more or less) with the chapter breaks (e.g meta tauta).

Of course, the final proof is in the abundant fruit this study bears. The chapters of Revelation link to all aspects of the Spokes of the Wheel. Some links are based on the literal meaning of the corresponding letter, such as Revelation 4 which opens with reference to a Door, literal meaning of the fourth letter Dalet. Other links are based on content found only on the corresponding Spoke, such as Revelation 4 and Revelation 5 which contain material found only in Ezekiel and Daniel on Spokes 4 and 5, respectively. Other chapters are linked to material found on corresponding Spokes of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah, such as Revelation 19 which links to Isaiah 63 (Spoke 19, Cycle 3), and which links to the ancient rabinnical understanding of Quph, the Nineteenth letter. Simply stated, there is no end to the wonders of God's Holy Word! Glory to God in the highest!
