The Sixth Hour
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant,
and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled
himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Philippians 2:5ff (Spoke 6, Cycle 3)
The sun went dark at the sixth hour when Christ - the Light of the World - was
And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness
over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and
the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
Exactly the same phenomenon is seen when the Sixth Seal of Revelation is opened in Revelation 6:
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there
was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and
the moon became as blood;
Revelation 6:12 (Spoke 6, Inner Cycle 1)
This then forms a Spoke 6 KeyLink from the Inner Wheel of Revelation to the Inner Wheel of Isaiah,
based on the set (black*, sackcloth) [Verify], which appears only in Revelation 6.12 (above) and
this verse from 0:
I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make
sackcloth their covering.
Isaiah 50:3 (Spoke 6, Inner Cycle 3)
Using modnotation to write 50 = 6 + 2 x 22 = 62, we have the following KeyLink:
|KeyLink Set: (Black*, Sackcloth) |
|PRevelation( 61 ) PIsaiah( 63 )|
The profound integration of Isaiah 50 and Philippians (Book 50), which contains the text of the kenosis
(self-emptying), is discussed in The Humilation of Christ.
The explicit declaration of Philippians in the quote at the head of this page that
Christ was "found in fashion as a man" links to the
fundamental meaning of the Number 6 as the Number of Man - whose creation occurred on the Sixth Day,
and whose destruction is prohibited in the Sixth Commandment.
Thus, we have a full integration of the surface text
- the Sixth Hour being the time the sun was darkened - with the internal structure of
Revelation, Isaiah, and the Christian Canon.
