Spoke 6

Romans 6 chain Death of Christ

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

Romans 6

The God-given insight into the supernatural design of Holy Scripture revealed by the Wheel never ceases to amaze me. I sat down today (5/6/03) with no idea what I should work on, so I simply asked the Lord for direction. As usual, all my hairs lifted as He annointed me with His Holy Spirit and I knew what to write. I opened Romans 6 and read the verses quoted above while holding my mind on the meaning revealed on Spoke 6 of the Bible Wheel. Immediately, the theme of his death and burial lept out at me since I had already written articles relating to these ideas, such as the link between Isaiah 50 and Philippians (Book 50, cf. [Inner Wheels] > The Humilation of Christ) and the relation between His crucifixion and the Number 6 as discussed in The Sixth Hour and Revelation 6.

I therefore searched for the phrase ("his death") [Verify] and found that it occurs 19 times in the KJV, with the last two occurrences being in Romans 6 and Philippians on Spoke 6, Cycle 3. Here is the context of the last occurrence of the phrase "his death" (Philippians 3.8f):

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

Immediately, the reference to "his resurrection" lept out, and I knew, before even checking, that I had discovered yet another KeyLink that integrated with the other Spoke 6 articles that have been published on this site for months! And all this happened within a minute after praying for direction from the Lord! We have therefore a KeyLink based on the set ("his death", "his resurrection") [Verify] . Using modular notation to write 50 = 6 + 2 x 22 = 63, we arrive at this representation of this KeyLink between Romans 6 and Philippians on Spoke 6 of the Bible Wheel:

Yet this is but the beginning! I then continued reading Romans 6 while holding the themes of Spoke 6 in my mind. Within minutes, I discovered another KeyLink based on the set (Obedien*, Death) [Verify]. Here are the linked verses:

Romans 6 (vs. 16) Philippians (vs.)
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

It was Christ's obedience unto death that opened the door for us to be freed from sin and obedient unto righteousness. We have another KeyLink:

keyKeyLink: Obedience and Death
PRomans( 61 ) chain PBible( 63 )

Note that the verse linked to Romans 6 is one of the most significant verses in Philippians. It is in fact definitive of the theme of Philippians, just as the KeyLinks between Romans 5 and Ephesians link to the essential verse defining salvation through Faith (Ephesians 2.8). These are top level patterns that anybody with a basic understanding of Scripture can immediately recognize for themselvs. These KeyLinks link to key verses that have served as the basis of ten thousand Sunday sermons. Note also that the death of Christ integrates with the Sixth Commandment "Thou shalt not kill."

Now the really astounding thing is that Romans 4, 5, and 6 are linked with KeyLinks to the sequence of books on Spokes 4, 5, and 6 of Cycle 3. In other words, the thematic flow of three consecutive chapters of Romans is linked with KeyLinks to the three consecutive books on the same Cycle! Here is a table of the primary links and the themes they express. Note that each of these chapters of Romans is linked with multiple KeyLinks to its corresponding book on Cycle 3 of the Wheel:

Sequential KeyLinks between Inner Cycle of Romans and Cycle 3 of the Wheel
Spoke KeyLinks Thematic Integration
4 Romans 4 chain Galatians
1) (Seed, Promise*, Abraham*) [Verify]
2) (Seed, Heir*, Abraham*) [Verify]
3) (Promise, "of none effect") [Verify]
4) ("What saith the scripture?") [Verify]
The Call of Abraham, the Promise to his Seed, and the preaching of the Gospel in the OT.
5 Romans 5 chain Ephesians
1) ("By Grace", Gift, God) [Verify]
2) (Grace, Faith, "of God") [Verify]
God's gift of everlasting Life by Grace through Faith
6 Romans 6 chain Philippians
1) ("his death", "his resurrection") [Verify]
2) (Obedien*, Death) [Verify]
The Death of Christ and our Burial and Resurrection with Him

All of the Inner Cycle of Romans is profoundly integrated with the Hebrew alphabet, the Bible Wheel and other Inner Cycles. The list above is not at all exhaustive - it is merely illustrative of the striking correspondence between consecutive chapters of Romans and the corresponding books on the third Cycle of the Wheel.

This is the miracle of God's Wheel. I sat down this morning with no idea what to write, and this entire article was produced in a little over an hour after simply asking the Lord God Almighty for guidance. I pray each reader will do the same.
