Job, Matthew, 1 John
Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:
That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying,
Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from
their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
The Great Commission
theme of Spoke 18 is expressed in the Tsaddi KeyWord
(Tsey!, Go Forth!) which manifests in
the proclamation of the Gospel (cf. The Gospel Goes Forth!) and the
Great Commission in Matthew (Spoke 18, Cycle 2).
This integrates with World History and the world wide missionary expansion of the
The image on the right is the Seal of the
Society for the Propogation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG) which was founded in England in the first year of the Eighteenth Century (1701 AD).
The words around the edge read
SIGILLUM SOCIETATIS DE PROMOVENDO EVANGLIO IN PARTIBUS TRANSMARINIS
which is usually translated as
"Seal of the Society for the Propogation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts." A more literal translation
would render the last word transmarinis as "across the sea" which is represented in the Ship
crossing the Sea in the Seal below. The incredible thing about this is that the words "trans" (over)
and "mari" (sea) both appear in the Latin Vulgate version of Isaiah 18!
The banner above the people says
"Transiens Adiuva Nos "
which means "Come over and help us!" The Preacher on the bow, holding an open Bible, is nearly half
as tall as the mast. A strong wind, representing the Holy Spirit, fills the sails, forcefully
driving the ship to deliver the Gospel to the new land.
contains a Ship with
a very tall Preacher holding an open Bible coming to share the Gospel in the Americas. The correspondence
with Isaiah 18 is astounding. Many people have seen America - founded in the
Eighteenth Century - in both Isaiah 18 and Revelation 18. Whether God intended a literal prophetic connection
I can not say, but the symbolic resonance is impossible to miss, especially in light of the
SPG Seal which actually pictures America.
The theme of the preaching the Gospel is further expanded in the next two verses (Isaiah 18.3-4)):
All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see
ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.
For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my
dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
The highlighted phrase is highly reminiscent of Isaiah 40.9 (Spoke 18, Cycle 2 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah):
O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem,
that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not
afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!
This verse from Isaiah 40 represents the first occurrence of the Gospel (Bashar) in the Book of Isaiah. It
corresponds to the first Gospel in Bible Book 40, Matthew (cf. The Gospel
One of the strongest witnesses to the divine integration of Isaiah with the Hebrew Alphabet is found in the
Alphabetic KeyWords that appear in the corresponding chapters. Isaiah 18 opens with two fundamental

- (Tsirim, Ambassadors). This is the plural of Tsir,
