Spoke 4

Isaiah 26 chain Ezekiel

In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks. Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

Isaiah 26.1f

Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

Isaiah 26.20

The first occurrence of the Hebrew root pic (Delet, Door) in Isaiah appears here on Spoke 4 in the verse above. This coheres with the distribution of the words Gate(s) and Door(s) throughout Scripture, which is greatly maximized on Spoke 4 (cf. The Door).

The divine integration of Isaiah 26 with Ezekiel in particular and numerous elements of Spoke 4 in general is so extensive, I will simply walk through Isaiah 26 verse by verse, with links to the many articles that expand on each verse.

Open the Gates

1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks. 2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

This links directly to the opening verse of Ezekiel (cf. Divine Chariot):

Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

In both Ezekiel and Isaiah 26, the word translated as open(ed) is from the root pic (Petach), which first appears in Genesis 4, translated as Door. This is supernaturally integrated with the Inner Wheel of Revelation where we find the Door openened in heaven in Revelation 4 with many extraordinary KeyLinks to Ezekiel (The Throne with a rainbow, the Four Living Creatures, etc.). Note that the link involves the Number 4, the Number of the Spoke. This is an example of the integration of the semantic content of Scripture with its geometric structure!

The Truth in Isaiah 26.2 is pic (Emet = n441 = 21 x 21). This is a square number, as is its Greek equivalent pic (Aletheia = n64 = 8 x 8), and the Spoke Number 4 = 2 x 2. The mention of the "strong city" hearkens to the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21.16) and the Courtyard of the Temple of Ezekiel (Ezekiel 40.47) which are both explicitly stated to be foursquare. The theme of the strong city, with its walls and bulwarks links strongly to Ezekiel (chapters 40 and following) and Psalm 48 (Spoke 4, Cycle 3).

Perfect Peace in the Name of the Lord

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

Peace is the essence of the rest we find in Jesus Christ as our everlasting Sabbath. This theme, and its association with the Name of the Lord, appears again in verse 12 below.

The name of the Lord is one of the great themes found on Spoke 4. This is one of the four occurrences of the Divine Name Jehovah found in the KJV. Its position on the Inner Wheel of Isaiah corresponds exactly with its Numerical Value:

JEHOVAH

pic

YHVH

= 26

This identity manifests in the characteristic phrase "know that I am the Lord" which is greatly maximized in the Book of Ezekiel (cf. Spoke 4 article The Tetragrammaton). The themes of fixing the mind upon the Lord and the perfect peace that is promised to follow links with all the great Spoke 4 Themes originating from the Fourth Commandment (Sabbath Rest) and Psalm 4 (Commune in your heart and be still). The Perfect Peace is found in His Holy Name, Yehoshuah HaNotzri (Jesus of Nazareth). All these words sum to the same value, n752. They are closely related to the Number 754 as discussed in The Divine Chariot.

The Dust of Death

5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.

While the primary theme of the destruction of the City is found on Spoke 3 (cf. Isaiah 3 - Fall of Jerusalem, the symbol of Dust is one of humilation and ultimately death, as revealed in the first Dalet verse of Psalm 119 (vs. 25):

DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.

This naturally integrates with the theme of the Fourth Commandment (Sabbath Rest) and the Fourth Seal (Death).

Poor and Needy

6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy [Dalim].

The word translated as needy is pic (Dalim), the plural of the fundamental Dalet KeyWord pic (Dalal, Poor). This expresses the essence of Dalet, as discussed at length in the Galatians article about the four Weak and Beggardly Elements.

Dalet KeyWord: Derek (The Way)

7 The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just. 8 Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.

Derek (Way) is the most common KeyWord in the Dalet Alphabetic Verses. For example, here are two of the Dalet Verses from Psalm 119:

Psalm 119.27: Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

Psalm 119.30: I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.

I Will Seek

9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

The word used here is Shachar (S# H7836), which relates to the theme of the Dalet KeyWord D'rash (Seek, Search out) used in two of the Dalet Alphabetic Verses.

The Lord Lifts His Hand

10 Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD. 11 LORD, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.

The theme of God Swearing - symbolized by the lifting of His Hand - links strongly to Ezekiel as seen here in this representative verse:

And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up mine hand unto them, saying, I am the LORD your God; 6 In the day that I lifted up mine hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands:

Note that In Ezekiel God declares that He espied the land for them. The word used is pic (Tur, S# H8446. This word first occurs in Numbers where it is found in 13 verses which accounts for 59% of the 22 verses it is found in Scripture. It is a dominant theme word of Numbers, used primarily in the record of the 12 men God commanded to spy out the land of Canaan in Numbers 13 and 14. The command went out in Numbers 13.2:

Send thou men, that they may search [tur] the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.

This then became entwined with the great theme of Numbers - the wandering in the wilderness for forty years - as explained in detail in the incredible Numbers - Ezekiel KeyLink Each Day for a Year.

Fire Shall Devour Them

11 LORD, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.

Almost exactly the same warning is found in Book 26 (Ezekiel 15:7):

And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I set my face against them.

There are only two other verses in the entire Bible selected by searching for the set ("fire", "shall devour them") [Verify] .

More Peace in the Lord's Name

12 LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us. 13 O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.

As above we see an association between Peace and the Name of the Lord, both of which are significant Spoke 4 themes.

Death

14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.

Death is a primary Spoke 4 theme that originates in Genesis 4 and manifest clearly in the theme of the Dust of Death (cf. Dalet Alphabetic Verses). It reappears again below.

Birth

15 Thou hast increased the nation, O LORD, thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth. 16 LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them. 17 Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD. 18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.

The fundamental Spoke 4 theme of Birth originates in conjuction with Blood in Genesis 4. Both manifest clearly in Isaiah 4 and Isaiah 26 with many KeyLinks to Ezekiel. Most notable are these verses from Ezekiel where God uses the meataphor of Birth to speak of His relation to Israel (Ezekiel 16.5f):

And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born. And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

Note the inextricable link between Birth and Blood, both of which first appear in Genesis 4. This theme also links strongly to the formation and birth of Christ in our hearts as spoken of by Paul in Galatians 4.19f (cf. Birth of Christ in Us):

My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.

Resurrection of the Dead

19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. 20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

The theme of dust as This theme is linked with extreme clarity to the Vision of Dry Bones in Ezekiel:

And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

This is discussed at length in the Isaiah 26 - Ezekiel article Thy Dead shall Live.

Blood Exposed

21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Blood first appears in Genesis 4. It is a major theme of Spoke 4, and the specific theme of Blood being (un)covered also originates in Genesis 4 with Cain's murder of Abel and God's statement that "the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground." This is all greatly amplified in many links and KeyLinks between Isaiah 4, Isaiah 26, and Ezekiel (cf. Isaiah 4: Blood Stains). Note also that birth and blood are both linked in the passages from Ezekiel cited above.
