Revelation 19 Quph Genesis 19
And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying,
Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: For true
and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt
the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
The first and last occurrences of the word "smoke" are united in the geometry of
the Wheel. The last is found in the verse above, and the first is found in Genesis 19
in the description of the
destruction of Sodom and Gommorah. The parallelism is striking:
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD
out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants
of the cities ...
And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:
And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld,
and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
The Hebrew word for smoke - the Quph KeyWord (Qitor, S# H7008)
- makes its debut in Genesis 19.
Both fire and brimstone, which God used in the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19
used to describe the final judgment found in Revelation 19 (vs.20):
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before
him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that
worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
We have an extremely strong thematic link based on the fire, brimstone, and smoke of
|Thematic Link: The Smoke of God's Judgment|
|PGenesis( 19 ) PRevelation( 19 )|
These passages are further linked by an explicit identity of the sins that are being judged.
In Jude 7 we read:
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving
themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for
an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
The cause of the judgment therefore integrates with the fundamental
Quph KeyTheme of the flesh which also is
maximized in the following verses from Spoke 19 of the Wheel of Revelation
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to
all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the
supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh
of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of
them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both
small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies,
gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him,
with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that
worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with
brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon
the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled
with their flesh.
These verses from Revelation 19 contain six of the seven occurrences of flesh found
on the Wheel of Revelation. Here is a graph of the distribution:
Truly, there is no end to the wonders of God's Word! Consider what is going on here. The theme of
flesh has been independently established in multiple articles relating to
Spoke 19 of the Bible Wheel where it also was
shown to be integrated with the intrinsic alphanumeric
structure of the Greek and Hebrew alphabets through Gematria. And now we see its distribution
maximized on Spoke 19 of the Inner Wheel of Revelation! And yet for all this, it is but the
