The 22nd spoke
A trilogy of love
In blending together the three notes of this spoke into one chord, a magnificent love story unfolds.
In Song of Songs
a bride is chosen and the song of Courtship is sung. The maiden and the king continue their romance through the book of Songs ending with the chosen bride asking to be sealed on her beloveds’ heart
and then ending with her words saying 'make haste (come quickly)'.
the Bridegroom Christ, says wait till I come and seal you with the Holy Spirit our 'betrothal' Covenant. In Acts 2:4 we see the Holy Spirit being poured out upon the new church (The Bride
) sealing their hearts with the Holy Spirit
, and then again we are told to wait till 'the times of restoration of all things
' Acts 3:21. Jesus Christ the Bridegroom is then in heaven preparing a place for His bride
we see that Christ has returned for his bride and she becomes the wife of the Lamb
Rev 19:7-9, completing the plan of the ages. What begins in Genesis with God creating man, male and female, joined together as one flesh, man and wife; ends with Christ the Son of God, joined together with His bride 'the Church', to become her husband. Then we see the closing words of Rev. answering the closing words of S.S. 'surely I come quickly'
This is one of the many wonders that spoke 22 displays, tying together Gods plan of the ages, and presenting it as a beautiful love story.
