II Samuel, Jonah, I Timothy
Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and spake,
saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh. Also in time past, when Saul was king over
us, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD said to thee,
Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel.
So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with
them in Hebron before the LORD: and they anointed David king over Israel.
David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years.
Spoke 10, Cycle 1
(II Samuel 5.1f)
Otto I, The Great
Otto I, "the Great," was crowned Emperor of
the Holy Roman Empire
by Pope John XII (though the term "holy" was not added until the Thirteenth Century).
Otto chose to have the cermony conducted at Aachen, built by Charlemagne in
the Eighth Century as a sign that he was continuing the
Carolingian legacy. Many dukes of the
realm served him a great banguet to show the German unity. This was the beginning of the first
"German Reich" in the line that culminated in Hitler's failed attempt to form the Third Reich.
The Empire was strongly allied with the
Roman Catholic Church. Papal approval and coronation was required for the elected "king of the Romans"
to become "Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire." The relation between
Church and Empire was often tumultuous, with many German kings such as
Henry IV and
Frederick I opposing the Pope because of
inevitable political differences between the German Emperors and Italian Popes.
The rise of the Holy Roman Empire in the Tenth Century corresponds to
David's ascent to the Throne in II Samuel. Its zenith of power in the following few centuries corresponds
to the books of Kings and Chronicles that are filled with the history of the Kings of Israel and Judah.
Its decline around the Thirteenth Century is described by
Dr. Harold Damerow , the Senior Professor of
Government and History at Union County College,
in his article on the
Holy Roman Empire :
While the Holy Roman Empire survived until 1806 when the self-made Emperor Napoleon I
of France finally abolishes it, the Empire became a weak confederation of ultimately more
than 300 independent little states. ...
Just as France and England emerged as powerful monarchical states in the thirteenth century,
the Holy Roman Empire went into decline.
This means that the correlation between the history of the Kings of Israel that begins on Spoke 9
and follows through to Spoke 14 corresponds almost exactly
with that of the Holy Roman Empire.
The Eternal King
The Crown of the Holy Roman Empire was built with eight hinged panels with pictures of
King David (II Samuel), King Solomon (I Kings), King Hezekiah (II Kings) and Christ the Eternal King.
This integrates with the content of Spoke 10 and the great theme of God the Eternal King, which forms
a strong link between I Timothy (Spoke 10, Cycle 3) and Psalm 10 based on the set
(King, "for ever and ever") [Verify]
which is a near KeyLink, selecting only one other verse than these two:
|Spoke 10, Cycle 3 (I Timothy 1.17)
||Psalm 10 (vs. 16)|
|Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be
honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
||The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
All of this finds its origin in Genesis 10 which contains the first appearance of the word "kingdom"
in the Bible.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. [Psalm 2]
When read backwards, the four central letters of the Herbew Alphabet - Yod, Kaph, Lamed, Mayim - spell the
word (Malki, My King), used above in Psalm 2 in direct reference to David and
prophetic reference to Christ. It is therefore
a great wonder to behold the books corresponding to these letters spanning the time when David ascended to
the throne unto the last mention of his death in I Chronicles 29.26:
Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel. And the time that he
reigned over Israel was forty years; seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and
three years reigned he in Jerusalem. And he died in a good old age, full of days,
riches, and honour: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead. Now the acts of David the king,
first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the
book of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer, With all his reign and his
might, and the times that went over him, and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of the countries.
As mentioned above, the Imperial Crown, which was probably made for King Otto I in the Tenth Century,
has images of the three greatest Kings in the history of Israel
and Judah. The rule of these three Kings began with King David in the 10th and progressed
sequentially with King Solomon in the 11th Book and King Hezekiah in the 12th. All
of this is integrated with the order of the Canon, the order of the Hebrew alphabet, and the
course of World History:
|MALKI (My King)
Historians call the time period spanned by the middle letters of the Hebrew Alphabet
the Middle Ages, when the Kings
rule their kingdoms. This is the Wisdom of Almighty God, who determines the course of
the nations and the flow of the centuries.
