From Kilburn Kid to King of the Road - Bradley Wiggins, who has now won more Olympic Medals than Henry VIII has had wives.
Danny Boyle's ‘Isles of Wonder’ ceremony theme is inspired by William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The Olympic bell is inscribed with a line from the play: “Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises.”
Bradley Wiggins was chosen to ring the bell at the Olympics 2012 ceremony - Bells ring to gain people's attention with important announcements, churches and spiritual ceremonies. This bell was 'meant to be' made for the Olympic's ceremony in Holland.
The Dutch connection continues to shine a light and the bell is ringing for everyone to hear 'globally'. The ceremoney was watched by 4 billion people. The bell marked the beginning of the £27 million show on July 27. At two metres tall and three metres wide, weighing 23 tonnes, it will be the largest in Europe.
We are given signs with the numbers that are relevant too.
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices--mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law--justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former." Matthew 23:23
"And know ye that ye shall be judges of this people, according to the judgment which I shall give unto you, which shall be just. Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am." Nephi 27:27
Jesus commands them to call the Church in his name—His mission and atoning sacrifice constitute his gospel—Men are commanded to repent and be baptized that they may be sanctified by the Holy Ghost—They are to be even as Jesus is. About A.D. 34–35.
The Royal Road is shown to everyone with the colour purple.
East Molesey (meaning an island or river meadow) is situated on the Thames opposite the magnificent |Hampton Court Palace, the scene of 500 years of royal history from Henry VIII to George II. Today we see lots of activity happening also we can see the Union Flag flying over the Palace.
Outside Hampton Court Palace. The winners recieve their medals.
Bradley Wiggins sits on a golden throne at Hampton Court Palace after his victory. Notice the Royal Puple colour seating again. Below he looks to heavens with being presented with his medal. A reminder of the higher power and prayers answered. There are quite a few men who want to be king now. Time will tell all.
In an earlier article I posted about the French demanding the Crown Jewels. We see from this image the Arc de Triomph (Triumph) is at the center of Charles de Gaulle square and the central point of 12 avenues one being the famous Champs-Elysées - leading in the direction of the Champs-Elysees Palace.
This is an illustration of how 12 families are united by one Crown. Consider that every road is a family lineage and all come back to meet a common ancestor, who everyone is related to. Just a thought to consider. If we are to go back in time - we discover, that we humanity are one family. Disputes can be resolved.
Even though the throne above is symbolic - being located at Hamptom Court Palace is making a symbolic statement. These are the signs that are relevant to understand. Below we can see the main gate with familar figures seen on the British Crown Crest including the unicorn and lion.
When Henry VIII became king of England in 1509, Thomas Wolsey became the King's almoner and extremely powerful within the Church. He attained the position of Lord Chancellor, the King's chief adviser and often depicted as an alter rex (other king). Within the Church he became Archbishop of York and then made a cardinal in 1515, giving him precedence over the Archbishop of Canterbury (Canterbury is in Kent) Hampton Court Palace was where Thomas Wolsey resided.
Cardinal Wolsey. After this magnificent dwelling, he felt that the only fitting abode for him was the Papal Palace in Rome. Ambitious as he was, the Emperor Charles would never allow an Englishman to be Pope lest he ignore the Bull of Borgia and send a colony to the New World.
The Cardinal hated Charles for blocking his Papal ambitions. Wolsey first suggested to Henry that he break the alliance with Spain by divorcing his wife Catherine, the aunt of the Emperor.
Charles retaliated by invading Rome in 1527, and taking the Pope captive. This shut the door to any divorce from Rome and led to the downfall of the Cardinal. Henry went on to declare himself head of the "church" in England and broke the ties between England and Rome."
Hampton Court Palace was originally a 13th century grange and founded by the Knights Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem.
Throughout the 20th century, the Palace has been a major London tourist attraction; in addition 50 grace and favour residences are given to esteemed servants and subjects of the crown. The palace is owned by the Monarch by virtue of their position as head of state. One elderly recipient caused a major fire, which spread to the King's Apartments in 1986. This led to restoration work which was completed in 1990 - to begin embarking on the next chapter.
Present Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has announced his intentions to step down at the end of 2012. This is setting the stage for the unique process of government officials appointing the new leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
With the church uniting people as one universal church of peace - we understand from the above, this corresponds with the olympic games uniting 205 different nations in peace. We might have differences - however, it takes more energy to argue and fight - than to focus on what unites everyone in harmony.
Peace, love and best wishes
