And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray
God your whole spirit and soul and
body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I Thessalonians 5.23
The Wheel of God is composed of twenty-two Spokes and three concentric
wheels within the Wheel called Cycles. The sixty-six books of the Bible fit perfectly on
this structure. Each Cycle retells the Gospel story in its own unique way from Aleph to Tav,
from the beginning of Godís creation to its ultimate consummation.
Each of the twenty-two Spokes cuts across the three Cycles to reveal the common themes
emerging at that stage of the everlasting story. God designed the Cycles in accordance
with the primary divisions of Scripture.
Cycle 1 begins with Genesis, the first book of the Law (Torah) which contains the
seed of every major doctrine of Scripture.
Cycle 2 begins with Isaiah, the first book of the Prophets. This follows the pattern presented by
Christ when he said, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:
I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil." This partition, found eleven times in
the writings Matthew, Luke, John, and Paul, was commonly understood to represent the
entire Old Testament.
Cycle 3 begins with Romans, the first book of the Epistles, which forms the
largest division of the New Testament, consisting of exactly twenty-two books.
|The Three Cycles|
||Genesis - Song of Solomon|
||Isaiah - Acts|
||Romans - Revelation|
In general, the three Cycles follow the pattern of Body (Matter), Soul (Life), and
Cycle 1, spanning Genesis to the Song of Solomon,
is the most physical, natural, and materialistic Cycle in that it begins with the
literal creation of the world and ends with the literal marriage of a King and his Bride.
Cycle 2, spanning Isaiah to Acts, opens with a reference to heaven and earth,
as in Genesis, but is aimed at reformation of the life of Godís children, as we read in
Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have
nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. ... Come now,
and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they
shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse
and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
This Cycle is consummated in the Book of Acts with the advent of the Holy Spirit at
Pentecost and the consequent birth of the Church of Christ, the eternal Kingís
living Bride. The Lord Jesus Christ now dwells in the heart of his people as they
accomplish his work and await his return.
Cycle 3, spanning Romans to Revelation, is the most spiritual Cycle. As with Genesis
and Isaiah, Romans opens with reference to heaven and earth and hearkens back to "the creation
of the world," but now the veil is fully removed and the Bible speaks explicitly of
the Godhead, saying,
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness
and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that
which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so
that they are without excuse.
This final Cycle culminates in the simultaneous consummation of the Bible and Creation,
wherein Christ the "King of kings and Lord of lords" now receives his Bride made spotless
by his blood and a great voice from heaven declares "Behold, the tabernacle of God is
with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall
be with them, and be their God." This is when God will create "a new heaven and a new earth:
for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away" and "we shall be changed" to
"bear the image of the heavenly." Then shall we see God "face to face" and "we shall be
like him; for we shall see him as he is." And finally, this is when we "shall have put
on immortality," death having been "swallowed up in victory."
|The Three Cycles of Spoke 1|
||The first book of the Law which records the creation of heaven
and earth. It is the foundation of all the doctrines in the Bible.|
||The first book of the Prophets in which we read: "For thus
saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made
it; he hath established it." Herein all the doctrines are amplified, especially the
doctrine of Christ.|
||The first book of the Epistles, which quotes heavily from Genesis
and Isaiah and is the greatest doctrinal book of the entire Bible.|
|The Three Cycles of Spoke 22|
|Song of Solomon:||The Marriage Song, when a
King receives his bride. This is the most physical manifestation of
|Acts:||The Birth of the Church, the Bride of
Christ, the Eternal King.
|Revelation:||The Marriage of the Lamb, when Christ receives His
