God's Mighty Power
And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he
chose their seed after them,
and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;
To drive out nations from
before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land
for an inheritance, as it is this day. Know therefore this day, and
consider it in thine
heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath:
there is none else.
Deuteronomy 4:37ff (Spoke 5, Cycle 1)
The numerous links from this little passage of Deuteronmy to the Books of Daniel and Ephesians on Spoke
5 are astounding to behold. For example, there are four KeyLinks connecting the above passage
to Ephesians 1.15f:
Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and
love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of
wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his
calling, and what the riches of the glory of his
inheritance in the saints,
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe,
according to the working of
his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he
raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand
in the heavenly places, Far above
all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named,
not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Ephesians 1.15f (Spoke 5, Cycle 3)
As an aside, note how the prayer that we recieve "the spirit of
wisdom and revelation" integrates with the
Spoke 5 theme of the revelation of secrets. Likewise, the reference to
love in both passages links back to the article called
Holy, Chosen and Loved. This is an example of how
difficult it is to expound on Scripture - the superabundance of riches makes it impossible to even point
to all the wonders, let alone expound on them! We will have to wait for some sort of multi-dimensional
glorification of our minds to even begin to appreciate what God has done! Glory!
In the interest of brevity, I will simply list the four search strings that select these two passages
(and only these passages) from the King James Bible. They are all based on the phrase "his mighty power"
withing a few verses of some other common term, such as 'his mighty power' within one verse of inheritence,
or 'his mighty power' within four verses of "love*".
Since there are so many links, I will simply use the following shorthand to represent them:
|Spoke 5 KeyLink Set:|
'His Mighty Power' near (Inheritance, Love*, Great*, Heaven*)
The dominance of this theme on Spoke 5 becomes evident when we search the entire Bible for all verses containing the words
based on might* and power* (i.e. all words like might, mighty, power, powerful,etc.) yields
the following distribution:
Note that all three books from Spoke 5 contibute to the peak.
Likeswise, all three books contribute to the secondary maximum on Spoke 1 which gives rise
to relatively large value for the cc between each pair of Cycles:
Cycles 1 and 2: CC12 = .33
Cycles 1 and 3: CC13 = .64
Cycles 2 and 3: CC23 = .66
These numbers are simply to large and consistent to be attributed to chance. The evidence for the
divine design of the Bible in the form of the Wheel is overwhelming. A similiar distribution is found when we search the entire KJV for all verses containing the phrase
The blue bar on Spoke 5 represents the single hit found in Daniel:
And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with
a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.
Daniel 9:15 (Spoke 5, Cycle 2)
This phrase is found in ten verses of Deuteronomy, most notably Deuteronomy 9:26:
I prayed therefore unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, destroy not thy people
and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed through thy greatness, which thou hast brought
forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
Deuteronomy 9:26 (Spoke 5, Cycle 1)
Putting it all together: Now that the themes are evident, the task is to meditate on the meaning
revealed in the structure God has designed. I leave that as an exercise ...
