Spoke 4

Isaiah 26 chain Ezekiel

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. 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 (vss. 19f)

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.

Book 26 (Ezekiel 37:13)

In his book "Eternal Life?", the world famous theologian Hans Kung asserted quite adamantly that (pg. 83):

All the patriarchs of Israel [Kung's emphasis], Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Moses and the Judges, the kings and the prophets, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel, ... none of these Jews believed in a resurrection of the dead or in an eternal life in the positive sense of the term, in a 'Christian heaven.'

He then went on to discount the verse from Ezekiel quoted above, claiming it referred not to a literal resurrection, but only to the repatriation of the exiled Jews into the land of Israel. And always the scholar, he was careful to tie up all loose ends by discounting the parallel passage in Isaiah 26 which he, in his quintessentially scholastic fashion, declared not even to have been written by Isaiah in the first place! And now we witness another fulfillment of God's promise to expose the utter folly of such unbelief. The very passages that Kung felt compelled to discount are two of the most significant passages demonstrating the divine correlation between the chapters of Isaiah and the books of the Bible! Ezekiel is Book 26, corresponding to Isaiah Chpater 26. Comparing the two passages above, we see that they have much in common. They both contain clear promises from God to his people that they shall live. If we take this as a clue, and search the KJV Bible for the two phrases, "my people" and "shall live", with the criterion that they are to be found within at least one verse of each other, we will discover another divine KeyLink, and as is typically the case, this set forms a very meaningful and comforting statement, "my people shall live." Glory!

KeyLink: My People shall live
Isaiah 26chainEzekiel

Consider the depth of divine integration going on here! Not only do we have a KeyLink between Isaiah 26 and the 26th book of the Bible, but the content of the KeyLink coheres with the Biblical meaning of the Number 4 as revealed in the Fourth Seal (Death), the Fourth Commandment (Sabbath Rest) and even in the chapter sequence of Genesis where the first death is found in Genesis 4. Such glory can scarce be listed - it goes on and on! Oh! Praise the Lord who has given us His Holy Word!

Dalet - The Door

The passage from Isaiah 26 also links to the Fourth Letter. The word translated as "thy doors", pic (Deltikah), is the plural of pic (Delet, Door), the letter governing Spoke 4, and that the first occurrence of this word in Isaiah is found here in Chapter 26 (= 42), i.e. Cycle 2 of Spoke 4 of Isaiah's Wheel. 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) It also links to the general alphabetic structure of Isaiah, as revealed in the alphabetic integration of Beyt and Gimel in Chapters Two and Three, respectively.

As a final note, the God's call in Isaiah 26 "Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust" links directly to the theme found in the first Dalet verse of Psalm 119:

Psalm 119.25: DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.

Dust as a symbol of death originated with the entrance of death and God's declaration "for dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return" (cf. Dalet Alphabetic Verses and The Fourth Seal: Death). Quicken means to bring back to life! Here we see the theme of the KeyLink between Isaiah 26 and Ezekiel encoded in the alphabetic sequence of Psalm 119 and the meaning of the Fourth Letter. Consider carefully what this means. It is one thing to find a KeyLink between Isaiah 26 and Ezekiel, it is quite another to find the content of the KeyLink to be integrated with the symbolic meaning of the letter governing the Spoke!

How bright must the light shine before we are willing to arise and bless the name of the Lord? Oh Glory, Glory, Glory! We are all going to be resurrected - some to everlasting life and others to everlasting shame and destruction (Daniel 12). This is the Promise of God - oh how I pray your soul will be ready for the great day of God!
