Make Haste, My Beloved
Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart
upon the mountains of spices.
Song of Solomon 8:14 (Spoke 22, Cycle 1)
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Revelation 22:20 (Spoke 22, Cycle 3)
The last and second to last verses of the last books on Cycle 1 and Cycle 3 declare the same thing -
come my beloved Lord Jesus! Could a clearer cry of the heart of a believer be found in a better
location of God's Wheel?
Note also that the great theme of Spoke 22 is encoded in the last
words of the Song of Solomon, as discussed in the article the
Bride of Christ.
The theme of "haste" is part of a KeyLink between Acts and Revelation based on the set
(quickly, test*) [Verify] which selects only these two verses:
|Acts 22 (vs. 18)
||Revelation 22 (vs. 20)
|And saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem:
for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.
||He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even
so, come, Lord Jesus.
Using modnotation to write 44 = 222 (Spoke 22, Cycle 2), etc., allows us to
represent this KeyLink as follows:
|KeyLink: (Quickly, Testimony)|
|PBible( 222, 221 ) PBible( 223, 221 )|
Note that the Number 22 is repeated on both the level of the Bible Wheel and in the Inner Cycle of the
chapters of both Acts and Revelation. This is a very strong Spoke 22 theme.
Note also the phrase "make haste" from Acts 22.18 is also found in Song of Solomon 8.14.
Open to the Voice of the Beloved!
I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that
knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my
undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.
Song of Solomon 5:2 (Spoke 22, Cycle 1)
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice,
the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Revelation 3:20 (Spoke 22, Cycle 3)
The two verses above are connected by a KeyLink based on the set (Voice, Open, Knock*) [Verify]:
|KeyLink: Open unto the Voice of the Beloved!|
|Song of SolomonRevelation|
This corheres perfectly with the great theme of Spoke 22, which is the
Consummation of Creation when Christ
receives His Bride.
