Romans 6 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:
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:
|KeyLink: His Death and Resurrection|

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)
|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
||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:
|KeyLink: Obedience and Death|
|PRomans( 61 ) 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|
||Romans 4 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.
||Romans 5 Ephesians
1) ("By Grace", Gift, God) [Verify]
2) (Grace, Faith, "of God") [Verify]
|God's gift of everlasting Life by Grace through Faith
||Romans 6 Philippians
1) ("his death", "his resurrection") [Verify]
2) (Obedien*, Death) [Verify]

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.
