Spoke 16

Armageddon

Revelation 16 chain Zechariah

And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Revelation 16:16

In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

Zechariah 12:11 (Spoke 16, Cycle 2)

Armageddon

The only occurrence of the name Megiddon in the Old Testament is found in Zechariah on Spoke 16 of the bwheel. Likewise, the only place in the New Testament to mention Armageddon is here on Spoke 16 of the Inner Wheel Revelation. We have therefore a powerful KeyLink:

KeyLink: Armageddon
Revelation 16chainZechariah

This KeyLink reveals the necessity of faithful translation. Amongst the seven versions used for comparison in this study, this KeyLink appears only in the King James Bible because the King James is the only version to faithfully represent the underlying inspired text! There is a subtle but extremely important detail found in the Hebrew text of Zechariah that has been lost in the other translations because of very apparent lack of respect to the Word of God! The book of Zechariah is the only book in the Bible where God used the name Megiddon. In all other references to this place, it is called Megiddo. These words differ by the Nun suffix:

This difference is not without signification - the Nun indicates ongoingness and perpetuity. This might seem like a small matter - as it apparently did to all the modern translators who ignored this point - but small matters reveal the glory of God! This KeyLink is a property of the underlying Greek and Hebrew texts. It appears only in he KJV because the KJV is the only version that faithfully translated it! Indeed, "Who has despised the day of small things?" [Zechariah 4.10] In God's Word we must walk with great fear and trembling, for it is the Word of Living God!

 

Unrepentant Blasphemers

The links between Zechariah and Revelation 16 are very broad and deep. For example, searching all seven versions for all verses that mention "plague(s)" within one verse of tongue(s) yields exactly two verses, which I display side-by-side for clarity:

Revelation 16 (vss. 9f) Zechariah (vss. 14.12f)
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

We have therefore another KeyLink between the Bible Wheel and the Inner Wheel of Revelation that is so powerful even the modern translators couldn't mess it up:

KeyLink: God Plagues Unrepentant Blasphemers
Revelation 16chainZechariah

This KeyLink is very similar to the extremely strong theme of the obstinate refusal to hear linking Nehemiah and Zechariah (cf. Hearts of Stone). Note also that God says "their eyes shall consume away in their holes" in Zechariah, corresponding to the meaning of Ayin (Eye) governing Spoke 16.

 

False Prophets and Unclean Spirits

The amazing thing about the God's Work is that the twists and turns in Revelation 16 are matched in Zechariah. In the space of one verse God enters into an entirely different topic that also "just happens" to be found in Zecharaih, linked with yet another KeyLink!

Revelation 16 (vss. 12f) Zechariah (vss. 13.2)
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land. And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.

We have the KeyLink based on the search string (Prophet*, Unclean, Spirit*) [Verify]:

KeyLink: False Prophets and Unclean Spirits
Revelation 16chainZechariah

 

Great Earthquake

Yet this is but the beginning! Searching all seven versions for all verses that contain the words "fled" and "mountain(s) within two verses of "earthquake" yields another geometrically integrated prophecy:

Revelation 16 (vss. 18f) Zechariah (vss. 14.5)
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

This extremely powerful KeyLink exists in all seven versions:

KeyLink: Fleeing from the Great Earthquake
Revelation 16chainZechariah

Yet there is more! This KeyLink integrates with World History and the Great China Earthquake of the Sixteenth Century, which is the greatest natural disaster humans have ever recorded.

 

City/People Divided into Thirds

Revelation 16 (vss. 18f) Zechariah (vss. 13.89f)
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Oh! The wonders never cease. We have yet another KeyLink:

KeyLink: City/People Divided into Thirds
Revelation 16chainZechariah

This integrates with the Number 3 and the concept of the People of God gathered by the Holy Spirit first mentioned on the Inner Cycle of the Psalms in Psalm 3.

 

Remembrance unto Wrath

The reference to remembrance and wrath links to Psalm 38, corresponding to Zechariah in the Canon, which is the only other passage containing the set (remembrance, wrath):

Revelation 16 (vss. 19) Psalm 38 (vss. 1f)
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

The word translated as "remembrance" is an anagram of L'Zechariah (For Zecahriah) as discussed in the Isaiah 38 article, Remember Me, O Lord! (yes - this theme runs throughout Spoke 16, including Nehemiah, Zechariah, Psalm 38, Isaiah 38, and Revelation 16, to name a few of the prominant linked passages). This is a KeyLink between the Inner Wheel of Revelation and Inner Cycle of Psalms:

keyKeyLink Set: (Remembrance, Wrath)
PRevelation( 16 ) chain PPsalms( 162 )

Note the KeyLink involves the title of the Psalm, demonstrating that these too are integrated with the divine design.

 

Nations Gathered for Battle

This all began when God gathered all nations to battle against Jerusalem. I have quoted more extensive passages to show how the KeyLinks above interlock with the one below:

Revelation 16 (vss. 14f) Zechariah (vss. 14.2f)
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

While I am pretty sure there are KeyLinks between these verses that work in all seven versions, I haven't found the time to hunt them down. But I do have two KJV KeyLink sets (battle, gather, "go forth") and (battle, gather, within one verse of day):

KeyLink: Gathered for Battle
Revelation 16chainZechariah

I have ten thousand more things to say about the links revealed on this one little page - but I have ten thousand times ten thousand things I need to say about the rest of Scripture, so I will return here when the Lord leads. There is certainly enough here now for anyone interested to find their way into the deeper wonders of God's Word.


OH! THE POWER AND THE GLORY OF GOD ALMIGHTY! PREPARE YOUR HEART FOR THE KING OF KINGS! IF EVER THERE WERE A WITNESS OF THE DIVINE DESIGN OF SCRIPTURE AND HISTORY IS THIS NOT IT?
