Spoke 3

Revelation 3 chain Nakedness & Clothing

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Revelation 3:17f

Every time I look into Scripture I am astounded. The ancient tradition states that God made Gimel king over wealth, and in the linked article I show how the image of a Camel (literal meaning of Gimel) is associated throughout Scriture with the idea of Wealth.

These passages are deeply integrated with the symbolic force of the letter Gimel. The theme of shameful nakedness originates with the Fall in Genesis 3 and is greatly expanded in Leviticus on Spoke 3, where the distribution of "naked" is maximized in the Bible. This theme also manifests with great clarity in Isaiah 3 (vss. 6-7):

When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand: In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.

The exhortation to by "gold tried by fire" integrates with the maximization of "holy" and "fire" in Leviticus, and the first appearance of these terms in Matthew 3 in conjuction with the Holy Spirit. It is a manifestation of the character of the Third Divine Person who clothes the believer in the Spirit of God.

The clothing God counsels we buy is also a major theme of Spoke 3. The word "clothed" first appears in Genesis 3 when God clothed Adam and Eve after the Fall. It appears again thrice reiterated in 2 Corinthians on Spoke 3 (vs. 5.2f):

For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

This theme also manifests in the reward promised to the Church of Sardis (Revelation 3.5):

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
