The Power of the Spirit
He hath shewed (hagid) his people the power (ko'ach) of his works ...
AV Psalm 111:6a (Kaph)
But truly I am full of power (ko'ach) by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment,
and of might, to declare (hagid) unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
Micah 3:8 (Bible Wheel: Spoke 11, Cycle 2)
The literal meaning
of the name of the eleventh letter
Kaph denotes a variety of similar objects, such as the palm of the hand, a spoon, a palm branch, and
the sole of the foot. The letters Yod and Kaph denote
different aspects of the "hand" and both have overtones of power,
but for different reasons. In the case of Kaph, its meaning as "power" derives primarily from its
sense as a "covering" seen in so many Kaph KeyWords such as kasah (cover), kavod (glory), kanaph (wind), and so forth
(see Wings of Glory). Thus when the Tabernacle was completed,
it was covered (kasah) with the Shekinah glory (kavod) of God's Spirit
(see Spoke 21 > The Light of the Word). This kind of
power (ko'ach), covering (kasah), and glory (kavod)
is strongly associated with the letter Kaph and with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is also associated with
revelation, of course. These ideas are the basis of the
Alphabetic KeyLink formed by the two verse quoted above. These two verses, and only these two verses, are selected by searching the
Hebrew text for ko'ach and *hagid
where the asterix (*) is a wildcard that allows for various prefixes. These verses are strongly linked both
thematically and in the exact form of the Hebrew words used. We have an Alphabetic KeyLink:
|Spoke 11 Alphabetic KeyLink: The Power of His Spirit Declared|
|AV Psalm 111:6a (Kaph)Micah (Spoke 11, Cycle 2)|
There is only one other passage of Scripture that contains any form of these two words together
(allowing for any tense, mood, prefixes, suffixes, and
so forth). It is found in Judges 16 when Delilah begs of Samson "Tell me, I pray thee (hagidah-na),
wherein thy great strength (ko'achka) lieth."
The really amazing thing is that the verse from Micah 3:8 that is selected by the words used in the
Kaph verse of AV Psalm 145 also forms a Spoke 11 Keylink to the Book of 2 Timothy (Spoke 11, Cycle 3). This
KeyLink is selected by searching for the set (power, spirit, judgment/mind) [Verify]. This selects
Micah 3:8 (quoted above) and this verse from 2 Timothy:
For God hath not given us the spirit of of fear; but of power,
and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 (Spoke 11, Cycle 3)
We have the KeyLink:
|Spoke 11 KeyLink: The Power of His Spirit|
|Micah 3:8 (Spoke 11, Cycle 2)2 Timothy 1:7 (Spoke 11, Cycle 3)|
Note that the link passages speak of the spirit of ... of ... of ... of .... The same pattern is seen on
the Inner Wheel of Isaiah in Isaiah 11 which has many profound links to what we have seen here on the Bible Wheel.
It is especially intriguing to see the "power of the Spirit" displayed here on Spoke 11 which also contains the
premier declaration of the inspiration of all Scripture in 2 Timothy (Book 55), and its
correlation (again based on Kaph) with Isaiah 55. We have a host of independent lines from
both the Bible Wheel and the Isaiah-Bible Correlation converging here on a single point.
