Spoke 18

Come Out of Her, My People!

Revelation 18 chain Isaiah 182

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

Revelation 18

Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins.

Isaiah 40

Double for all her sins

The thematic correlation between Revelation 18 and Isaiah 40 (Spoke 18, Cycle 2) contains some elements that identical, and some that are mirror images of each other. They both speak of the "doubling" of the reward of effect of sin. In the case of Jerusalem, this is the declaration of the accomplishment or fulfillment of God's Judgment in two forms: 1) Historically (and prophetically typical) in the exile and return of the Jews to Israel, and 2) Soteriologically in the death and resurrection of Christ for the remission of our sins. The words spoken to Jerusalmen are "words of comfort" whereas the words spoken to "Babylon" are a great cry of impending woe and judgment. This leads to a KeyLink based on the simple set (Double, Her) [Verify] which appears in exactly two verses in all the KJV, both of which are quoted above. Using modnotation to write 40 = 18 + (2 - 1) x 22 = 182, we arrive at this representation of this KeyLink:

keyKeyLink: Double for all her sins
PRevelation( 181 ) chain PIsaiah( 182 )

There are other KeyLinks between these passages which I will leave as an exercise for the interested student. (Hint: both passages speak of "my people".)

Come out of her my people!

One of the most obvious correlations is based on the fundamental Tsaddi KeyCommand pic (Tsey) meaning "go forth" or "come out" depending on context. This exact word, the masculine singular qal imperative, first occurs in Scripture when God commanded Noah to "Go forth of the ark" (Genesis 8.16). It is formed by simply combining Tsaddi with Aleph, which is the most direct way to reveal the force of the letter. Almost exactly the same word is used in the modern Hebrew translation of Revelation 18.4 published by the Bible Society in Israel (1991) where the masculine plural qal imperative pic (Tsayu) is used. This integrates with the coordinated debut of the Gospel which simultaneously "goes forth" from Isaiah 40 and Bible Book 40 (Matthew) as discussed in various articles such as The Gospel Goes Forth, Psalm 40, and Great Commission). This all integrates with World History with the world wide missionary expansion of the Eighteenth Century.

A Millstone cast in the Sea

In Matthew 18, Christ warned:

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

This coheres with the symbol of God's judgment on Babylon from Revelation 18:

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

The verse from Matthew 18 is a near KeyLink - the only other verses containing the set (millstone, sea) [Verify] being found in the two parallel passages in Mark and Luke. Thus, when confining our view to the Inner Cycle of Matthew and the Inner Wheel of Revelation, we do have a true KeyLink:

keyKeyLink: Judgment like a millstone cast in the sea
PMatthew( 18 ) chain PRevelation( 18 )
