Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

The above comes as the LORD excoriates the elders and all the earth’s inhabitants, telling them to tell their children what they see, so they warn the generations to come (not to make the same mistakes). He speaks of a people who’ve come upon all like swarms of insects endlessly devouring: now when every sector of prosperity is systematically under assault. Destruction is the plan (“The Great Reset”) of the insane in power, which here in our nation, the main focus of their evil, they (the deceivers, destroyers, and their false accusers who blame the innocent for what they’ve caused), reverse and define as “Build Back Better.”

These same evil powers censored those who warned of the attack as the attacker announced their plans if given the opportunity and power: delusional and false promises of utopia through destroying the supply and production of necessities. And now, amid their destructions, they deny, shift blame, and continue to censor any daring to replay their promises and remind us this result was always their (the evil’s) objective. By their fruit, you shall know them!

The LORD says, at sight (understanding) of this destruction, the people should lament, like a virgin mourning for the husband of her youth: God, whose ways and ideas taught and followed brought prosperity and security in life, liberty, and property. He says several (three) times in Joel, that the cause is the “meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, and the LORD’s ministers mourn.”

The fruit, by which men are known, is the meat “offering” spoken of above, from the Hebrew word minchah, meaning “to apportion, i.e. bestow; a donation; euphemistically, tribute; specifically a sacrificial offering (usually bloodless and voluntary).” It’s use refers us to the first (three) times it appears in Genesis, there speaking of the offerings made to the LORD by Abel and Cain. As we know, the LORD accepted Abel’s, the sheep He was the keeper of, and He rejected Cain’s, which was the fruit that grew from the earth.

This is the pattern of the moment; what the LORD has always asked, is for His sheep to be with Him in His ONE BODY with/by His ONE MIND. The fruit (of Cain) is the evil that’s grown out of the earth, which offering identifies those who don’t really know Him, even those claiming they do, and when it (their offering) is refused they become violently angry.

Genesis 4
1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain [qayin and qanah – the name speaks of the upright, who created their own ways: what grew out of the earth, words used as weapons, like spears quickly thrown through the air], and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
2 And she again bare his brother Abel [hebel – His name speaks of a transitory condition, when men were keepers of God’s people, positions which became filled by those, as Cain, who are not their brother’s keeper]. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: [as in John 21: 17 & 18 saying “Jesus said unto him, Feed my sheep. 18 Truly, truly, I say unto you, When you were young, you gird yourself {prepared your own way}, and walked where you would: but when you shall be old {now}, you shall stretch forth your hands, and another shall gird you {prepare you to feed My sheep}, and carry you {on wings of eagles} where you would not {of your own volition}.]
5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had no respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why are you wroth? and why is your countenance fallen?
7 If you do well, shall you not be accepted? and if you do not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto you shall be his desire, and you shall rule over him.
8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel your brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
10 And he said, What have you done? the voice of your brother’s blood cries unto me from the ground. [Hebrews 12:25 See that you refuse not him {the mediator “that speaks better things than that of Abel”} that speak. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven: 26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.]
11 And now are you cursed from the earth, which has opened her mouth to receive your brother’s blood [the fruit of their creations, witnessing against such men] from your hand;
12 When you till the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto you her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond [nuwd – the origin of the once used word rendered Nod below in verse 16] shall you be in the earth.
13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14 Behold, you have driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from your face shall I be hidden; and I shall be a fugitive [nuwa’] and a vagabond [nuwd] in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that everyone that finds me shall slay me.
15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark [‘owth – a sign of the end] upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

1 John 3
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth [agapao – leading God’s sheep to Him, by giving His good to the world in need] not his brother.
11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love [agapao] one another.
12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works [creation from the earth] were evil, and his brother’s righteous [feeding the LORD’s flock].
13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love [agapao – feed] the brethren. He that loveth [agapao – give this word from the mouth of God, good by which man lives] not his brother abides in death.
15 Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer [restraining this good word of life and replacing it with the creations of men, evil words that are the weapons of death]: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us [to give us the word from God’s mouth]: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17 But whoso has this world’s good, and sees his brothers have need, and shut up his bowels of compassion [the good the LORD puts in His mind] from him, how dwells the love [agape] of God in him?
18 My little children, let us not love [agapao} in word [just saying we love God and our brothers], neither in tongue [without giving understanding]; but in deed [giving as He gave us] and in truth.
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts [our foundation understanding shall produce good fruit] before him.
20 For if our heart [foundational understanding reflected in our fruit] condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things [and He long-suffers to correct us].
21 Beloved, if our heart [our foundation thoughts reflected in our good fruit] condemns us not, then have we confidence toward God [in us by our like mind].
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments [feed my sheep and lead them into My ONE BODY, by teaching them this ONE MIND], and do those things that are pleasing [as Abel] in his sight.
23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ [in whose flesh is manifested Jehovah’s Salvation], and love [agapao] one another, as he gave us commandment.
24 And he that keeps his commandments dwells in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit which he has given us.

Revelation 12
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.
13 And when the dragon [whose words have destroyed the minds of men] saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished [as fed sheep] for a time, and times, and half a time [until she is able to rightly understand the time], from the face of the serpent [who is the devil and the dragon spewing lies and accusation at the innocent they seek to devour].
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood [of words, lies and false accusations – as it is this day from the wicked and the insane in power] after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth [and these men’s footsteps are seen in the ashes of the earth they are destroying], and swallowed up the flood [the lies that are exposed by the fruit these men produce in the earth] which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Isaiah ends telling us, in Isaiah 66:20, this offering (minchah) is all God’s people gathering to Him. It is to the place described in Hebrew 12 as Mount Zion, Heavenly Jerusalem, an enumerable company of His messengers, and the general assembly (ONE BODY) of the church of the firstborn.

The word there, in Hebrews 12:23, rendered “general assembly,” is the once used Greek word paneguris, “from 3956 [pas – any, all, every, whole] and a derivative of 58 [agora – lead together, gather]; a mass-meeting, i.e. (figuratively) universal companionship.” The verse tells of now, when the LORD in me, His first born from the dead, has gathered His people into His ONE BODY and MIND.

Hebrews 12
22 But you [who have the testimony of Jesus Christ, as opposed to those who’ve refused to hear His word and do not keep His commandments] are come unto mount Zion [God’s kingdom on the earth], and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23 To the general assembly [paneguris] and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.
25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Isaiah 66
14 And when you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind [from where His voice is heard], to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
19 And I will set a sign [‘owth – the fruit of evil shall be seen] among them, and I will send those that escape of them [from the evil] unto the nations… that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.
20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering [minchah] unto the LORD out of all nations… to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.
21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, says the LORD.
22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, says the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, says the LORD.
24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men [the dead in flesh bodies] that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

Joel describes the time when the dead bring their darkness and hell’s fires (ignorance and tribulation) upon the world, which is the day of the LORD, when He plainly manifests His presence against them, “for he is strong that executes His word.”

The word “executes,” that appears above from Joel 2:11, is the many times used word ‘asah, which only appears three other times in Joel. In Joel 2:20, 21, and 26, it (‘asah) describes the great things the LORD has done, choosing the delusion of the false prophets and false teachers (misleaders all) whose stink (ill savor) now appears, as the LORD is exalted in showing He is the one who led them astray (chose their delusion) and chose the time when He would reveal Himself in uncovering (in the Apocalypse) their deceptions and ignorance.

Joel (Jehovah God) is said to be the son Pethuel, a name only appearing this once, from the Hebrew words pathah and ‘el (God). The Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary definition of pathah is “to open, i.e. be (causatively, make) roomy; usually figuratively (in a mental or moral sense) to be (causatively, make) simple or (in a sinister way) delude:–allure, deceive, enlarge, entice, flatter, persuade, silly (one).”

The word pathah never appears in Joel, but many of the prophets (from Moses to Hosea) speak of it. This is the ‘owth, the sign and mark upon the deceivers and the deceived, their delusion brought to light, as they now are in plain sight for all to understand. Only the deceivers remain deluded and seemingly insane (filled with self-contradictions and denials of obvious reality, willful perplexities they violently defend).

The word (pathah) first appears in Genesis 9:27, as the LORD set His plan in motion. In this chapter, the word ‘owth appears its third and fourth time. It’s first used, in Genesis 1:14, telling of the light in the firmament of heaven (Divine exposition into full understanding) dividing day and night (times of darkness and light), for “signs” and seasons.

1 Thessalonians 5
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the LORD so comes as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

It (‘owth) next appears in Genesis 4:15 (above) telling of the “mark” upon Cain, which is also described in 1 John 3:12 where the exposition is also spoken of as agapao (God’s love poured out as salvation).

In Genesis 9:13 & 14, it (‘owth) is the “sign” the LORD put in the cloud (where understanding is held when it leaves the earth), which is the rainbow, the light in the firmament rightly divided into many colors, as Joseph’s coat (garment of light rightly divided). As we understand, when John sees it (the rainbow) now appearing, it is accompanied by the seven thunders, the voice of understanding permitted to be spoken only by the one whose right it is to rule (because it’s the Father’s anointing and crowning the son).

Revelation 10
1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spoke unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which stands upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
11 And he said unto me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

After Moses, in Genesis 9, tells of the rainbow, he then tells of the sons of Noah (represent all humanity), and Japheth (representing the third part of the people in who would reside the deceiving spirit and carry the mark, doing the work, of Cain).

Genesis 9
27 God shall enlarge [pathah] Japheth [from the word pathah], and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan [the children of Ham] shall be his servant.

What happens when these enticing deceivers are followed as gods, in God’s place, is self-destruction. But the LORD always makes an escape, sending a messenger He raises up from among His people, and in him, through His willing sacrifice He prepares for Himself, He illuminates salvation.

Exodus 22
16 And if a man entice [pathah] a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow [pay the price to purchase] her to be his wife.

Deuteronomy 11
16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived [pathah], and you turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
17 And then the LORD’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest you perish quickly from off the good land [earth] which the LORD gives you.
18 Therefore shall you lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign [‘owth] upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
19 And you shall teach them your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, when you lay down, and when you rise up.

The word (pathah) next appears, in Judges 14:15 & 16:5, as Samson’s (like the sun) wife, “entices” him, first to expound on the riddle he posed and next to reveal the source of his strength. The riddle, as we understand, gives the source, the light in him (like from the sun), coming out of His head (like hair), as the word of God in His mouth as sweet as honey. As we know, the honey came from the carcass of a lion (the written word remaining with the once strong now dead body of Christ), like Samson, the light in him extinguished by the enticers, until his hair, the strength coming from his mind, returned.

1 Kings 22
19 And he said, Hear you, therefore, the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left.
20 And the LORD said, Who shall persuade [pathah] Ahab [meaning he is his father’s brother – a spiritual reference to the seed of Reuben, who defiled his father’s bed, and referring to those who put themselves in God’s place], that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead [when God’s word is raised up and fulfilled]? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.
21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade [pathah] him.
22 And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, You shall persuade [pathah] him, and prevail also: go forth, and do [‘asah] so.
23 Now, therefore, behold [see – understand], the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets, and the LORD has spoken evil concerning you.
24 But Zedekiah [those claiming they have Jehovah’s righteousness while they are in fact false prophets and the children of Cain] the son of Chenaanah [Cain – marked by misleading and violence against those in whom the LORD delights] went near, and smote Micaiah [who is like Jehovah] on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto you?
25 And Micaiah [who is like Jehovah] said, Behold, you shall see in that day, when you shall go into an inner chamber to hide yourself.

The Hebrew word rendered “inner” and “chamber” is cheder, and refers elsewhere to the place where the LORD hides those he protects from His wrath. The word rendered “hide yourself” is chabah, which is only used four other times.

There is only one safe place, which is with the LORD, with His ONE MIND and BODY.

The false prophets and the false teachers are misled by their own lusts. Leaving them (their creations) behind is the only way they can be saved (because in choosing to keep them, they blaspheme the LORD unknown to them, speaking and working to save them).

1 Corinthians 3
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
14 If any man’s work abide which he has built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
16 Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He takes the wise in their own craftiness.
20 And again, The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

Ezekiel 14
3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumbling-block of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?
4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; Every man of the house of Israel that sets up his idols in his heart, and puts the stumbling-block of his iniquity before his face, and comes to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that comes according to the multitude of his idols;
5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus says the LORD God; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.
7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourns in Israel, which separates himself from me, and sets up his idols in his heart, and puts the stumbling-block of his iniquity before his face, and comes to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the LORD will answer him by myself:
8 And I will set my face [presence] against that man, and will make him a sign [‘owth] and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
9 And if the prophet be deceived [pathah] when he has spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived [pathah] that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
10 And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeks unto him;
11 That the house of Israel may go no more astray from me, neither be polluted any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be my people, and I may be their God, says the LORD God.

Isaiah 26
16 LORD, in trouble have they visited you, they poured out a prayer when your chastening was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, O LORD.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19 Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter you into your chambers [cheder], and shut your doors about you: hide [chabah] yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the LORD comes out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Jeremiah 49
10 But I have made Esau [the enemies mixed among us at war with us while claiming they are our countrymen and brothers] bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself [chabah]: his seed is spoiled, and his brethren, and his neighbors, and he is not.
11 Leave your fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let your widows trust in me.
12 For thus says the LORD; Behold, they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken; and are you he that shall altogether go unpunished? you shall not go unpunished, but you shall surely drink of it.

Joel 1
1 The word of the LORD that came to Joel [Jehovah God] the son of Pethuel.
2 Hear this, you old men, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land. Has this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?
3 Tell you your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.
4 That which the palmerworm has left has the locust eaten; and that which the locust has left has the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm has left has the caterpillar eaten [these speak the degeneration into depravity and its effects on prosperity and security].
5 Awake, you drunkards, and weep; and howl, all you drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.
6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he has the cheek teeth of a great lion.
7 He has laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he has made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
8 Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.
9 The meat offering [minchah] and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD’s ministers, mourn.
10 The field is wasted, the land mourns; for the corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languishes.
11 Be you ashamed, O you husbandmen; howl, O you vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.
12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languish; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.
13 Gird yourselves, and lament, you priests: howl, you ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, you ministers of my God: for the meat offering [minchah] and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.
14 Sanctify you a fast [for your words], call a solemn assembly, gather [my sheep into My ONE BODY] the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God [which is the offering I seek], and cry unto the LORD,
15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.
16 Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from the house of our God?
17 The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered.
18 How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep [they have not fed with My word] are made desolate.
19 O LORD, to you will I cry: for the fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame has burned all the trees of the field.
20 The beasts of the field cry also unto you: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness.

Joel 1 & 2 are among the most misinterpreted, proving there is no long understanding (light) in the church (the sun), in the moon (civil government), or the stars (God people at large). It is into this darkness the LORD manifested His presence, and this is the day of the LORD when He’s come unknown (as a thief) to the ignorant.

Joel 2
1 Blow you the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD comes, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there has not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3 A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness [ignorance].
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief [they shall destroy and devour all by the ignorance they propagate].
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark [be ignorant], and the stars shall withdraw their shining [shall not have any understanding]:
11 And [then] the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executes [‘asah] his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
12 Therefore also now, says the LORD, turn you even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repents him of the evil.
14 Who knows if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering [minchah] and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber [cheder], and the bride out of her closet.
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare your people, O LORD, and give not your heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savor shall come up, because he has done [‘asah] great things.
21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do [‘asah] great things.
22 Be not afraid, you beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he has given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that has dealt [‘asah] wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Psalms 21
1 The king shall joy in your strength, O LORD; and in your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2 You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
3 For you prevent [went before] him with the blessings of goodness: you set a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked life of you, and you gave it to him, even length of days forever and ever.
5 His glory is great in your salvation: honor and majesty have you laid upon him.
6 For you have made him most blessed forever: you have made him exceeding glad with your countenance [presence].
7 For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.
8 Your hand shall find out all your enemies: your right hand shall find out those that hate you.
9 You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
10 Their fruit shall you destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11 For they intended evil against you: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
12 Therefore shall you make them turn their back, when you shall make ready your arrows upon your strings against the face of them.
13 Be you exalted, LORD, in your own strength: so will we sing and praise your power.

The wicked plot against the just, and gnash upon him with his teeth. The LORD shall laugh at him [the wicked]: for he sees that his day is coming.

The wicked plot against the just, and gnash upon him with his teeth. The LORD shall laugh at him [the wicked]: for he sees that his day is coming.

The above, Psalms 37:12 & 13, is the LORD speaking through David, of seeing the fall of the wicked, epitomized in the king of Babylon, which we know is the rule of and by confusion, delusion, and forces insanity (reversing reality through gaslighting: constant denial of what the sane know to be true).

The successive verses tell of this fall coming as their (the wicked’s) own ways return upon their heads. They tell of them (the wicked), with their words plotting and gnashing against the just, to “cast them down,” from the Hebrew word naphal, meaning “to fall, in a great variety of applications (intransitive or causative, literal or figurative).” This, the fall of the wicked, is their own ways the LORD sees coming upon them, and laughs.

Isaiah 21
1 The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds [from where the LORD’s voice is heard] in the south pass through; so it comes from the desert, from a terrible land.
2 A grievous vision is declared unto me; the treacherous dealer deals treacherously, and the spoiler spoils. Go up [Arise!], O Elam [all those from all the generations of eternity here sleeping]: besiege, O Media [those who in their sleep have been lukewarm, without signs of life, not standing or speaking]; all the sighing [all the sorrow caused] thereof have I made to cease [shabath – from those who discontinued My work].
3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travails [who must bring forth what is in you, speaking My words I have written into your minds]: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed [bahal – only use by Isaiah one other time, in Isaiah 13:8, there telling of it as the fear that comes upon the world when it realizes this is the day of the LORD] at the seeing of it.
4 My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure has he turned into fear unto me.
5 Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink [from this cup]: arise, you princes, and anoint the shield [who is David, the protection the LORD has sent – as in 1 Samuel 16:12 & 13, “And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. Then Samuel {those who hear the voice of God speaking} took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came {tsalach – pushed forward, prospered} upon David from that day forward.]
6 For thus has the LORD said unto me, Go, set a watchman [tsaphah – seeing things coming, hearing the secrets of the LORD – as in Ezekiel 3:17, saying “Son of man, I have made you a watchman {tsaphah} unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.”], let him declare what he sees.
7 And he saw a chariot [a two-wheeled vehicle] with a couple of horsemen [riders on bikes], a chariot of asses [Brandon and his minions], and a chariot of camels [those bearing their burdens to the world]; and he hearkened diligently with much heed: [Isaiah 30:6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble {tsarah – the tribulation} and anguish, from whence come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent {whose venom causes the fires of hell}, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit {by} them {because the things they claim are valuable are worthless}.]
8 And he cried, A lion: My LORD, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime [in the light, understanding, you have given us], and I am set in my ward whole nights [I Am taking My stand in the prison of darkness, among the ignorant]:
9 And, behold, here comes a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen [naphal], is fallen [naphal]; and all the graven images of her gods he has broken unto the ground.
10 O my threshing [separating the wheat from the chaff], and the corn [ben – the children] of my floor [whom I have separated for My work]: that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.
11 The burden of Dumah [silence – those refusing to speak the words I given them]. He calleth to me out of Seir [the place of devils, speaking of the enemies ruling, misleading as the cause of the silence], Watchman [shamar – meaning “to hedge about (as with thorns)”], what of the night? Watchman [shamar], what of the night [the time of ignorance and darkness]?
12 The watchman [shamar] said, The morning comes [this light of the new day], and also the night [darkness in which people choose to continue]: if you will enquire, enquire you: return, come.
13 The burden upon Arabia [those who don’t know God, who are mixed among us]. In the forest [the ignorant who claim they are the upright] in Arabia shall you lodge, O you traveling [ever changing your positions, to intentionally cause confusion] companies of Dedanim [upon you has come double judgment].
14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema [the wise] brought water [this word] to him that was thirsty, they prevented [when before] with their bread him that fled.
15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.
16 For thus has the LORD said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, and all the glory of Kedar [the darkness] shall fail:
17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar [darkness], shall be diminished: for the LORD God of Israel has spoken it.

The fuller meaning of watchmen (shamar) mentioned in verses 11 & 12, is “properly, to hedge about (as with thorns), i.e. guard; generally, to protect, attend to, etc.” It tells of those, even though hedged in by the words of misleaders (false prophets and false teachers) among the multitudes who are (by them) silenced, who refuse (to be silent) and boldly speak the words God gives them.

Isaiah 62
1 For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness [understanding into the darkness], and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burns [as Christ, God with us in the flesh].
2 And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory [which is the LORD in us]: and you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
3 You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
4 You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall your land any more be termed Desolate: but you shall be called Hephzibah [chephets – meaning she is my delight – she is married to Hezekiah, meaning Jehovah is his strength], and your land Beulah [married]: for the LORD delights [chaphets] in you, and your land shall be married [to Jehovah’s strength].
5 For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.
6 I have set watchmen [shamar] upon your walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: you that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
7 And give him no rest, till he establishes, and till he makes [New] Jerusalem a praise in the earth. [What part of this is too hard to understand, that you refuse to follow His very simple prescription? Why do you refuse to be cured?]
8 The LORD has sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength [I Am], Surely I will no more give your corn to be meat for your enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink your wine, for that which you have labored:
9 But they that have gathered it [this feast] shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.
10 Go through, go through the gates [enter My kingdom, which is New Jerusalem]; prepare you the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones [of stumbling, put there by misleaders]; lift up a standard [nec – the pole upon which the son of man must be lifted] for the people.
11 Behold, the LORD has proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say you to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and you shall be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

Friends, if you can’t believe the LORD is in me speaking and working, then you will not believe He has ever spoken through any man. If you deny He is alive in me, then He isn’t (yet) risen in you.

1 John 4
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know you the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ [Jehovah’s salvation is manifested] is come in the flesh [the mystery of godliness revealed] is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them [the antichrist who deny the LORD is in us]: because greater is he that is in you, than he [the antichrists: deceivers] that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world hears them.
6 We are of God: he that knows God heareth us; he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God. [The words here and after rendered “love” and “loves” are agape and agapao. These are compounded from the two words ago and apo, which together describe the leading of the LORD to take away our sins, the errors that separate us from Him, which is, below in verse 10, described as “propitiation,” meaning to atone for our sins: make right what is wrong by the sacrifice of himself – which is the love of God, His glory, manifested to us and then through us. If His love doesn’t come through us, giving as He gives, then He isn’t alive in us, and we are dead in our sins. So try {inquire – as in Isaiah 21:12 above} the spirits to see if they believe the LORD is alive in your flesh, speaking this word to them.]
8 He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

John 3
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already [by this choice], because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that does evil hates the light [this understanding], neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved [tried and proven to be of God or not].
21 But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Coming to light is the trial of the spirits in men, which is this judgment of God. The word “reprove,” above in verse 20, is the Greek word elegcho, meaning “of uncertain affinity; to confute [prove], admonish:–convict, convince, tell a fault, rebuke, reprove.”

There is (this is the) judgment, and only in coming to it, accepting the light, is the LORD’s mercy found.

Ephesians 5
8 For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the LORD: walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the LORD.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [elegcho] them.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
13 But all things that are reproved [elegcho] are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever does make manifest is light.
14 Wherefore he says, Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light [understanding].
15 See then that you walk circumspectly [akribos – accurately, not in error], not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore be you not unwise, but understanding what the will of the LORD is.

1 Timothy 5
20 Them that sin rebuke [elegcho] before all, that others also may fear.
21 I charge you before God, and the LORD Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that you observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

John 16
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away [when you will not see me, when the prince of this world, the spirit of the misleader, comes and leads all into darkness], the Comforter [the Paraclete, the LORD unknown, leading those who receive Him into all truth] will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he is come, he will reprove [elegcho] the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and you see me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear [from the Father in me], that shall he speak: and he will [as the watchman the Father sends] show you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you.
15 All things that the Father has are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you.
16 A little while, and you shall not see me [because of the ignorance brought by following misleaders]: and again, a little while [when you receive understanding], and you shall see me, because I go to the Father.

John 14
15 If you love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but you know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but you see me: because I live, you shall live also.
20 At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
21 He that has my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22 Judas [Judah – the elect remnant] said unto him, not Iscariot [not the leaders who betray Me], LORD, how is it that you will manifest yourself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep [guard] my words [from those who corrupt it]: and my Father will love him [give Him this understanding], and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loves me not keeps not my sayings: and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
28 You have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
29 And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that, when it is come to pass, you might believe.
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world comes, and has nothing in me.
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. [I command you] Arise [egeiro], let us go hence [into death and from there into life again when you see Me].

The word rendered “hence” is enteuthen, meaning “from the same as 1759; hence (literally or figuratively); (repeated) on both sides:–(from) hence, on either side.”

It (enteuthen) is from en (into), teucho ({techo} make ready or bring to pass {by preparation} – as implied beginning John 14, and as used in passages below), and thano (the dead).

John 14
1 Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
4 And whither I go you know, and the way you know.
5 Thomas said unto him, LORD, we know not whither you go; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.
7 If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip said unto him, LORD, show us the Father, and it suffices us [it if it what perfects us – this defines the completion as seeing the Father in the son, which is salvation].
9 Jesus said unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet have you not known me, Philip? he that has seen me has seen the Father; and how sayest you then, Show us the Father?
10 Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he does the works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
12 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If you shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If you love me, keep my commandments.

1 Corinthians 14
8 For if the trumpet [the voice of the archangel] gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?
9 So likewise you, except you utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for you shall speak into the air.
10 There are, it may be [techo – there are prepared, made ready], so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification [when understood proving if they are of God or not].
11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaks a barbarian, and he that speaks shall be a barbarian unto me.
12 Even so you, forasmuch as you are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that you may excel to the edifying [building up by educating into understanding the written word which is as an unknown tongue, just as the LORD working through you is present but not comprehended] of the church.
13 Wherefore let him that speaks in an unknown tongue [the written word he doesn’t understand] pray that he may interpret [rightly divide, proving God is in him].
14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit [the LORD in me unknown] prays [to give me understanding], but my [own] understanding is unfruitful.
15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit [repeat the words the LORD gives me, as He gives me understanding], and I will sing with the understanding also.
16 Else when you shall bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupies the room of the unlearned say Amen at your giving of thanks, seeing he understands not what you say?
17 For you truly give thanks well, but the other is not edified [build up, prepared].
18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than you all:
19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.
20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice [intending harm, causing people to stumble in the darkness] be you children, but in understanding be men.

2 Timothy 2
1 You, therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that you have heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit you to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 You, therefore, endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that wars entangle himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strives for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strives lawfully.
6 The husbandman that labors [diligently seeks] must be the first partaker [the first to who it is opened] of the fruits [these treasure, the fruit of our labor, our diligently seeking the mind of Christ].
7 Consider what I say; and the LORD give you understanding in all things.
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead [in me] according to my gospel:
9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evildoer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound [it is opened to those who diligently seek Him, and when finding Him believe, have faith, it is Him they’ve found: the Father in the son].
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain [teucho – be prepared, made ready, for] the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
11 It is a faithful saying [regarding the resurrection of the dead and our taking up our cross to quicken the dead to life]: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny [it is] him, he also will deny us:
13 If we believe not, yet he abides faithful: he cannot deny himself.
14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the LORD that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to show yourself approved [dokimos – still standing and the substance, The LORD, is realized in you] unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
17 And their word will eat as does a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus [who hiding behind a spurious mask of fake love {pseudo-agape} hold you down {katecho} from rising to join with the LORD in His ONE BODY, which is the resurrection];
18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection [which only comes with joining the LORD in heaven: His mind, His full understanding] is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this seal, The LORD knows them that are his. And, let everyone that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.
21 If a man, therefore, purge himself from these [dishonorable men, whose inner substance is found to be corrupt], he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity [agape], peace, with them that call on the LORD out of a pure heart [by which only do men see God].
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strife [they are intentionally meant to cause endless argument].
24 And the servant of the LORD must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Hebrews 11
1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such a high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the LORD pitched, and not man.
3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:
5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, says he, that you make all things according to the pattern shown to you in the mount.
6 But now has he obtained [teucho – made ready] a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator [mesites – internunciator] of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Matthew 12
14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.
15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
16 And charged them that they should not make him known:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying,
18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles.
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow does not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils [misleaders] by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost [the LORD unknown speaking and working] shall not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from you.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah [the sign of the end, who is risen from the belly of hell and calls all to repentance from dead words and works]:
40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.
44 Then he says, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished [the unclean spirits of misleaders cast out, and the place prepared for the LORD to enter].
45 Then goes he, and takes [instead of the LORD] with himself [men remaining in these churches with old and corrupt ideas] seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first [because he believes he is saved; convinced by the same misleaders to follow them into perdition]. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, your mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to speak with you.
48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

And what is the will of the Father? To believe in the one He’s sent.

John 6
37 All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father’s will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he says, I came down from heaven?
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man, therefore, that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.
46 Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father.
47 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.
48 I am that bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

The verses referenced in verse 45 above are Isaiah 54:13 and Jeremiah 31:33 & 34.

Isaiah 54
13 And all your children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of your children.
14 In righteousness shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you.
15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against you shall fall [naphal] for your sake.
16 Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 31
31 Behold, the days come [the day has come], says the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them, says the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
35 Thus says the LORD, which gives the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divides the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] is his name:
36 If those ordinances depart from before me, says the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.

Psalms 49
1 Hear this, all you people; give ear, all you inhabitants of the world:
2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceases forever:)
9 That he should still live forever, and not see corruption.
10 For he sees that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue forever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
12 Nevertheless, man being in honor abides not: he is like the beasts that perish.
13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approves their sayings. Selah.
14 Like sheep, they are laid in the grave [sheol – hell]; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave [sheol – hell] from their dwelling.
15 But God will redeem my soul from the power [lying and misleading] of the grave [sheol – hell]: for he shall receive me. Selah.
16 Be not you afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
17 For when he dies, he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend [into hell] after him.
18 Though while he lived, he blessed his soul: and men will praise you, when you do well to yourself.
19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light [understanding].
20 Man that is in honor, and understands not, is like the beasts [without the LORD’s Spirit] that perish.

Psalms 37
1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be you envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and truly you shall be fed.
4 Delight yourself also in the LORD: and he shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not yourself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, you shall diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plot against the just, and gnash upon him with his teeth.
13 The LORD shall laugh at him: for he sees that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down [naphal – make fall] the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man has is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholds the righteous.
18 The LORD knows the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine [when the word of God is silenced by the world] they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
21 The wicked borrows, and pays not again: but the righteous show mercy, and gives.
22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delights [chaphets] in his way.
24 Though he fall [naphal – is cast down by the words of the wicked], he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lends; and his seed is blessed.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsake not his saints; they are preserved forever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever.
30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of judgment.
31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32 The wicked watch the righteous, and seek to slay him.
33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt you to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the perfect man [in whom the Father manifests His presence], and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God has visited his people.

And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God has visited his people.

The above tells of people’s response when the LORD raised an unnamed man from the dead. The passage says the LORD said to him, “Young man, I say unto you, Arises,” the man “that was dead sat up, and began to speak.”

Before the LORD speaks, He touched the “bier,” from the once used Hebrew word Soros, meaning “probably akin to the base of 4987; a funereal receptacle (urn, coffin), i.e. (by analogy) a bier:–bier.” The word (name) is telling what holds the dead, which is further characterized in the twice-used Greek word soreuo (4987), meaning “from another form of 4673 [soros]; to pile up (literally or figuratively):–heap, load.”

The word (soreuo) first appears in Romans 12:20; the LORD there speaking through Paul, commands us to do good to our evil enemies and thereby “heap” coals of fire upon their heads. It (soreuo) is then used in 2 Timothy 3:6, there saying silly women “laden” with sins are led away captive (by false teachers) and are ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. We’re told (in verse 5) this sort (their teachers) have “a form of godliness, but [are] denying the power thereof.” Paul says (the LORD in him speaking) from such turn away, because these are those who creep into houses and lead these silly women away (into ignorance).

Romans 12
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in ONE BODY, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are ONE BODY in [by the ONE MIND of] Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teaches, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorts, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without dissimulation [without acting or speaking good intentions while intending evil – having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof {to bring good}]. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 Be kindly affectioned [touching with good] one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the LORD;
12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation [thlipsis]; continuing instant in prayer;
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
16 Be of the same [ONE] mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the LORD.”
20 Therefore if your enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing you shall heap [soreuo] coals of fire on his head.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

2 Timothy 3
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall [have] come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good [as it is evident and undeniable this day],
4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden [soreuo] with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres [the priests holding God’s people in oppression] withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
10 But you have fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the LORD delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue you in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;
15 And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God [one of two times in the New Testament the title “man of God” is used, both of Timothy: Tim {time} of God] may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

The Greek words used above, in verse 5, speaking of those who have a form of “godliness” but are “denying” the “power” of God, are respectively, eusebeia, arneomai, and dunamis.

1 Timothy 3
14 These things write I unto you, hoping to come unto you shortly:
15 But if I tarry long, that you may know how you ought to behave yourselves in the house of God, which is the church [ONE BODY] of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness [eusebeia]: God was manifest in [His presence in] the flesh, justified in the Spirit [while unknown in the flesh], seen of angels [seen of those who become messengers sent to the heirs of salvation and eternal life], preached [by Him through His word in them] unto the Gentiles [unto those who don’t know Him], believed on in the world [in this generation], received up [exalted, lifted as the son of man is lifted] into glory [the glory revealed in our flesh is Jehovah’s glory known in us].

The power (dunamis) is to raise the dead, by the Good word of God manifesting His presence in our flesh, which is the mystery of eusebeia (godliness), which these men arneomai (deny), meaning they refuse to believe Christ is risen in us, and speaking through us to raise the dead.

2 Peter 2
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying [arneomai] the LORD that bought [agorazo] them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom, the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingers not, and their damnation slumbers not.

1 Corinthians 6
19 What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [the LORD unknown to the dead world] which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own?
20 For you are bought [agorazo] with a price [time – Tim in whom God dwells, Tim {time} the man of God]: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

14 And God has both raised [egeiro] up the LORD, and will also raise [exegeiro – through His rising raise] up us by his own power [dunamis].

The manner of His coming (appearing to the conscious) is what occurs in the title (Luke 7:16) passage: one raised (“Arising”) from the dead, and by it the people knowing the one doing it “is risen” from the dead, even though they don’t know who it is that has risen: who is the LORD yet unknown veiled in flesh. (1 Corinthians 15: 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.)

Luke 7
11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain [Beauty, from the twelve times used Hebrew word na’ah, telling of the houses of God taken captive by the destroyers]; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.
12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city were with her.
13 And when the LORD saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.
14 And he came and touched the bier [soros]: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto you, Arise [egeiro].
15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.
16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up [egeiro] among us; and, That God has visited his people.
17 And this rumor of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.
18 And the disciples of John showed him of all these things.
19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Are you he that should come? or look we for another?
20 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist has sent us unto you, saying, Are you he that should come? or look we for another?
21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things you have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised [egeiro], to the poor the gospel is preached [the power that raises those who believe].
23 And blessed [by the Father with life] is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

1 Corinthians 7
22 For he that is called in the LORD, being a servant, is the LORD’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant.
23 You are bought [agorazo] with a price [time – Tim of God: Timothy]; be not you the servants of men.
24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.

Colossians 1
9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
10 That you might walk worthy of the LORD unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11 Strengthened with all might [dunamis], according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light [strengthened by His power, giving us wisdom, understanding, and the knowledge of God which raise us into His ONE BODY by giving us His ONE MIND]:
13 Who has delivered us from the power of darkness [ignorance], and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption [have been bought] through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
23 If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Timothy am made a minister;
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings [the blood and cross of the LORD in me] for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his [ONE] body’s sake, which is the church:
25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation [oikonomia, “economy,” His word deposited in me to be dispensed as willed] of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God;
26 Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles [among those who don’t know Him]; which is Christ in you, the hope of [His] glory [revealed through us]:
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 Whereunto I also labor, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily [dunamis].

Ephesians 1
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us accepted in the beloved.
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
8 Wherein he has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he has purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation [oikonomia] of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom you also trusted, after that you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that you believed, you were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest [the deposit] of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the LORD Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17 That the God of our LORD Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power [dunamis] to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might [dunamis], and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Ephesians 3
2 If you have heard of the dispensation [oikonomia – the deposit] of the grace of God which is given me [to be distributed] to you-ward:
3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
4 Whereby, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
6 That the Gentiles [who don’t know God] should be fellow-heirs, and of the same [ONE] body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working [when His word is received as the word God, as it is] of his power [dunamis].
8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our LORD:
12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
13 Wherefore I desire that you faint not at my tribulations [thlipsis] for you, which is your glory.
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our LORD Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might [dunamis] by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power [dunamis] that works in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Friends, the LORD comes to restore us when He sees that our power is gone, as it is written in Deuteronomy 32:36.

Deuteronomy 32
28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?
35 To me belongs vengeance and recompense [see Romans 12:19 above]; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he sees that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.
37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,
38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings [the false priests {gods} of Daniel 14:14 thru 22 – false priests whose footsteps in the ashes {of the world} show they are men {consuming the offering made to their idol put in God’s place} and not gods]? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.
39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live forever.
41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
43 Rejoice, O you nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.

The word rendered “redemption,” above in Colossians 1:14 and Ephesians 1:7 & 14, of the purchased possessions (in context – Christ’s servants {slaves} in 1 Corinthians 7:22 above), according to His grace, is from the ten (ordinal perfection) times used Greek word apolutrosis. Its meaning is “from a compound of 575 and 3083; (the act) ransom in full, i.e. (figuratively) riddance, or (specially) Christian salvation:–deliverance, redemption.”

The word (3083) it’s compounded from is the twice used word lutron, meaning “from 3089; something to loosen with, i.e. a redemption price (figuratively, atonement):–ransom.” The word it’s from is luo (3089), meaning “to lossen.” It (apolutrosis) is, by this understanding, seen to be the same as the word apoluo, the word rendered “set at liberty” when describing Timothy in Hebrews 13:23, the last of the seventy times it appears.

The following, ending with Ezekiel 28, is the ending portion of the post from 29 June 2018, with addition for clarity:

Hebrews 9
1 Then truly the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.
2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the showbread; which is called the sanctuary.
3 And after the second veil [seeing beyond the second flesh], the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all [into the manifestation of the presence of God];
4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna [the word from the mouth of God, by which man live – Deuteronomy 8:3], and Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
5 And over it the cherubims of glory [depicting the message spoken face to face] shadowing the mercy-seat [the conversation in which His glory and presence are manifested to those who receive it as the word from His mouth]; of which we cannot now speak particularly [because they are the seven thunders reserved for this moment and this purpose].
6 Now when these things were thus ordained [thoroughly prepared], the priests went always into the first tabernacle [as the pattern of the flesh of Jesus Christ the LORD who died for us], accomplishing the service of God.
7 But into the second [I Am] went the high priest [now in the order of Melchisedec] alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest [as it is now], while as the first tabernacle (His first body) was yet standing:
9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience [perfecting the conscience];
10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation [spoken of by James, recorded in Acts 15:13 thru 21].
11 But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building [but of His New ONE BODY, of which I Am the firstfruits];
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption [lutrosis] for us.
13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh:
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ [now poured out, “By a new and living way, which he has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;” Hebrews 10:20], who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
15 And for this cause he is the mediator [mesites – internunciator] of the new testament [established in the LORD Jesus Christ], that by means of death, for the redemption [apolutrosis] of the transgressions that were under the first testament [not seeing the presence of God], they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance [which is joined as ONE with God].
16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator [and I remain dead until your resurrection from the dead and we are joined in ONE BODY with Him, in the air, the clarity only He gives].
17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator lives.
18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.
19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,
20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God has enjoined [entellomai – gave commandment and charge] unto you.
21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these [see and understand this in what is said in Hebrews 12:24 – 29, of the voice being heard from heaven – when you’ve come to the mediator who is speaking and shaking heaven and earth, which the LORD charges you not to refuse His word spoken from heaven].
24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true [which is the presence of God]; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entered into the holy place every year with blood of others;
26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world has he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time [here and now] without sin unto salvation.

Friends, those who have studied here for a while know Hebrews is written to introduce Timothy, the first outsider, into the New priesthood. It was written to the Hebrews who wanted to remain with the Levitical letter of the law instead of understanding the pattern it showed and was intended to achieve. Hebrews 13:23 tells of Timothy being set at “liberty,” from the seventy times used word apoluo (apolelumenon in the text), used the seventieth and last time here. It is the word used in the gospels to tell of Pilate having the power to “set free” the LORD from the sentence of death. Hebrews 13:23 is referring to Timothy as the one set free from the law by death (of the old nature and raised up in the order of Melchisedec), as it is written in the final verses of Hebrews 9 above.

Friends, I say again, Christ is risen in me, by His own power (I Am become who I Am become), according to the scriptures.

Ezekiel 28
25 Thus says the LORD God; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob.
26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.

Acts 15
6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.
7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, you know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;
9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
10 Now therefore why tempt you God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
11 But we believe that through the grace of the LORD Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.
13 And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:
14 Simeon has declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.
15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
17 That the residue of men might seek after the LORD, and all the Gentiles [those who don’t know Me], upon whom my name is called, says the LORD, who does all these things.
18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them [with vain traditions and old wives’ tales], which from among the Gentiles [who don’t know God] are turned to God:

When the above (verses 16 & 17) appears in Amos 9:11 & 12, those above said to not know God but are called by His name (Christians and Jews), are called the remnant of Edom. As we understand, Edom represents enemies mixed among us, trying to destroy us and our better culture while claiming to be our countrymen and brothers.

As we are experiencing, in this nation void of God’s word the truth is destroyed by false prophets and false teachers among us. They’ve mired and obscured understanding with their endless spewing of the delusional insanity, reversing all meaning, corrupting all discourse, and we (this nation under God) have become the actual tower of Babel now fallen (as Bandon has fallen). This fall is into the darkness (ignorance) and the condemnation (krisis – the choice of it) the LORD speaks of, in which they continue, even after understanding (light) has come. These men destroyed the world, rejecting known (obvious) salvation, and choose to continue in darkness (spewing insanity – the opposite of reality they force on the sane) because their deeds are evil. In this choice, they condemn themselves to hell.

Amos 9
1 I saw the LORD standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that flee of them shall not flee away, and he that escape of them shall not be delivered.
2 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down:
3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent [the deadly word of the men they continue to follow], and he shall bite them:
4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and [because they reject this word] I will set mine eyes upon them for evil [they choose to follow], and not for good [this truth they reject].
5 And the LORD God of hosts is he that touches the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
6 It is he that builds his stories in the heaven [by His full understanding], and has founded his troop in the earth [His army who receives Him]; he that calleth for the waters [bringing into the light the words of wicked men] of the sea, and pours them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.
7 Are you not as children of the Ethiopians [covered in darkness] unto me, O children of Israel? says the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt [haven’t I freed them from the words, the misleading of their oppressors]? and the Philistines [the invading enemy army among us] from Caphtor [whose king sits crowned and ruling over you], and the Syrians [those who exalt themselves and their words above God] from Kir [whose lies upon lies are the wall they and you trust in, separating you from God]?
8 Behold, the eyes of the LORD God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, says the LORD.
9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof [reestablishing the king line and gathering all God’s people again into ONE BODY under one king of God’s choosing]; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom [the enemies mixed among us, claiming they are our brothers and countrymen at peace with us, as they are at war destroying our nation and better culture], and of all the heathen [who don’t really know me], which are called by my name, says the LORD that does this.
13 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper [plowing under the current corrupt crop of leaders], and the treader of grapes [of wrath] him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, says the LORD your God.

Psalms 99
1 The LORD reigns; let the people tremble: he sits between the cherubims [where He manifests His presence]; let the earth be moved.
2 The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.
3 Let them praise your great and terrible name; for it is holy.
4 The king’s strength also loveth judgment; you do establish equity, you execute judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Exalt you the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
6 Moses [those pulled from the waters below] and Aaron [those who bring this light] among his priests, and Samuel [those who hear this voice as the voice of God, as it is] among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.
7 He spoke unto them in the cloudy pillar [from where His understanding is held]: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.
8 You answered them, O LORD our God: you are a God that forgave them, though you took vengeance of their inventions.
9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.

He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

The above is speaking of the LORD’s provision (providence) for those who put their trust in Him. The passage is Psalms 91:1 & 2, a Psalm where the subject is discussed, verses 8 & 9 saying because we do (make Him our refuge), we will see with our eyes the reward of the wicked.

Friends, in the name of the LORD, I decree (declare) to you the end of the wicked is upon them (of which cause and effect they remain ignorant). The LORD is unleashing (on them) the hell they’ve sought. They have sown to the wind and now reap the whirlwind!

This is the beginning, the new heaven and earth built upon the ruin the wicked have wrought.

Isaiah 26
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19 Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be over-past.
21 For, behold, the LORD comes out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Psalms 91
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with his feathers, and under his wings shall you trust: his TRUTH shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid for the terror by night [the terror that comes upon the ignorant]; nor for the arrow [the lies and false accusations of the wicked] that flies by day [against understanding, the LORD’s TRUTH, which is light and life];
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness [the disease that only affects the ignorant]; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday [the destruction that comes when understand has fully risen upon the earth].
7 A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you behold and see the reward [the just payment the for the evil work] of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the Most High, your habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling [because you have left them and come into the refuge – see Revelation 18 & 19 below].
11 For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
12 They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shall you trample under feet.
14 Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name [understood My identity – in those who abide in Me and I in them].
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble [tsarah – the tribulation of the world]; I will deliver him, and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my [Jehovah’s] salvation [in his flesh {Jesus} – in My ONE BODY].

Revelation 18
1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened [given understanding] with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she has filled fill to her double.
7 How much she has [in her wickedness] glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the LORD God who judges her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is your judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buys their merchandise anymore:
12 The merchandise [selling the corrupt things this world thinks are of value] of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that your soul lusted after are departed from you, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from you, and you shall find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to naught. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, you heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets; for God has avenged you on her [giving her the reward due her evil works].
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more [spewing deception] at all in you; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in you [in confusion doing evil work]; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in you;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in you; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in you: for your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries [their spells causing ignorance] were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Revelation 19
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the LORD our God:
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up forever and ever.
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you his servants, and you that fear him, both small and great.
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude [of those who’ve come out of the tribulation into the LORD’s refuge], and as the voice of [the rushing of] many waters, and as the voice of mighty thundering [see Psalms 81:7 below, this is the secret place, the place of the seven thunders only known to the LORD and by those to whom He reveals them], saying, Alleluia: for the LORD God omnipotent reigns [By his power, His secrets revealing the king He has chosen].
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he said unto me [as I say unto you], Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he says unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me [as I say unto you], See you do it not: I am your fellow-servant, and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus [in my mouth, which is the Father’s honey and strength given]: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy [speaking as the mouth of God].
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, he does judge and makes war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself [because the Father reveals it to without measure, because He has called me His son, and says it my right to rule].
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God [revelation no man knows].
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword [speaking this Word of God], that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron [the strength God gives to the one He chooses to rule]: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords.
17 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;
18 That you 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.
19 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.
20 And the beast [Babylon, confusion spewed from those who don’t know Him] was taken, and with him the false prophet [mixed among us deceiving and misleading the world] that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast [which is their confusion, their obvious delusions they insanely claim are reality], and them that worshipped his image [the false reality these evil men have created and force all the world to worship]. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 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 [those who by the LORD’s strength soar in heaven: in full understanding] were filled with their flesh.

Isaiah 26
1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah among [the elect remnant]; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open you the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.
4 Trust you in the LORD forever: for in the LORD Jehovah is everlasting strength:
5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he lays it low; he lay it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7 The way of the just is uprightness: you, most upright, do weigh the path of the just.
8 Yea, in the way of your judgments, O LORD, have we waited for you; the desire of our soul is to your name, and to the remembrance of you.
9 With my soul have I desired you in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek you early: for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10 Let favor be shown to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
11 LORD, when your hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of your enemies shall devour them.
12 LORD, you will ordain peace for us: for you also have wrought all our works in us.
13 O LORD our God, other lords beside you have had dominion over us: but by you only will we make mention of your name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have you visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.

Psalms 81
1 Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon [the new just civil government to be established, by His king, under the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, under which men are entitled to live – read your Declaration of Independence if you doubt this entitlement it true], in this time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.
5 This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: where I heard a language that I understood not.
6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.
7 You called in trouble [tsarah – out of tribulation], and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret [cether – the same word as in Psalms 91:1 above] place of thunder [now where the seven thunders are heard]: I proved you at the waters of Meribah [where you strived with Me, doubting it was My word flowing from the Rock: Christ in Moses speaking, when you said, “Is the LORD among us, or not?” Exodus 17:7]. Selah.
8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto you: O Israel, if you will hearken unto me;
9 There shall no strange god be in you; neither shall you worship any strange god.
10 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt: open your mouth wide, and I will fill it [with honey and strength].
11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels [into the darkness of ignorance].
13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways!
14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured forever.
16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the Rock should I have satisfied you.

The word the LORD uses, rendered “refuge” in Psalms 91:2 & 9, is the Hebrew word machaceh, meaning “a shelter (literally or figuratively):–hope, (place of) refuge, shelter, trust.” It (machaceh) is referring us to its descriptive use in Isaiah 4:6, as the secret place (of which all men are ignorant, and is only revealed by the Father to the son) is described.

Luke 10
21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank you, O Father, LORD of heaven and earth, that you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in your sight.
22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knows who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that you see:
24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them.

Isaiah 4
1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man [Ishi, Hosea 2:16 – the LORD in him], saying, “We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach.” [They remain ignorant to the fact that the cause of their reproach is their own ways and ideas – the leaven of their bread and their garments spotted by the flesh: idol put in God’s place and called by His name.]
2 In that day shall the Branch [covered in Iron and honey that must be eaten] of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped [of the darkness – by receiving the “end” of this conversation – Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever] of Israel.
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:
4 When the LORD shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day [the hiding place, from where understanding is revealed as the light of the new day], and the shining of a flaming fire by night [giving understanding, as fire against the persistent ignorance]: for upon all the glory [this presence of the LORD manifested] shall be a defense.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day-time from the heat, and for a place of refuge [machaceh], and for a covert [mictorw – a hiding place] from storm and from rain.

Isaiah 5
1 Now will I sing to my well-beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My well-beloved has a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
2 And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes [who have become strangers to me].
3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah [My elect remnant], judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard [my estranged and corrupt people, who worship idols they put in My place].
4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes [strangers who don’t know me, because of the false teaching and false prophesies they’ve been taught by the gods they put in my place]?
5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:
6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns [misleaders and deceivers]: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it [understanding will not come to them from Heaven, because of the gods they put in My place and call by My name].
7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
8 Woe unto them that join house to house [church to church], that lay field to field, till there be no place [to escape], that they may be placed alone [not joined to Me or their parts] in the midst of the earth!
9 In mine ears said the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war], Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.

Friends, the problem is God’s people, misleaders and those they’ve misled, don’t believe this is His word, and, therefore, they don’t heed His warnings or repent from their corruption. Woe to those whose refuge is the lies and falsehood they think hides them from the LORD’s correction.

Isaiah 28
12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith you may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, you scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
15 Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge [machaceh], and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus says the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not [as the liars] make haste [be ashamed when they realize they have lied in my name].
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge [machaceh] of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [this word of Jehovah heard].

Isaiah 25
1 O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2 For you have made of a city a heap; of a defensed city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
3 Therefore shall the strong people [You’ve strengthened] glorify you, the city of the terrible nations shall fear you.
4 For you have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge [machaceh] from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall [against the protection the LORD has provided, in His hidden truth revealed].
5 You shall bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud [covered by His understanding from heaven]: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.
6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the LORD God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD has spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
12 And the fortress of the high fort of your walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.

The “terrible ones,” who come as a storm against His truth revealed, whose “branch” shall be brought low, are respectively from the Hebrew words ‘ariyts and zamiyr, the first appearing twenty times and the second only this once.

From the Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary: #6184: `ariyts; from 6206; fearful, i.e. powerful or tyrannical:– mighty, oppressor, in great power, strong, terrible, violent; and #2159: zamiyr; from 2168; a twig (as pruned):– branch.

These men (the terrible ones) are described in Job 15:20, when Eliphaz the Temanite (meaning he, one of the enemies mixed among us, is one of the wise men of the world, whose god is his wealth) describes his demise with those of his ilk (his branches), which comes by their own ignorance (of the insurmountable wall of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God). He (Eliphaz) is here, in a pattern, condemning me and the (what he thinks are) worthless words of God heard from me, which he believes are in vain.

Job 15
1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,
2 Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind [understanding he says is given by God himself]?
3 Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?
4 Yea, you cast off fear [saying God says fear not], and restrain prayer before God [saying He has already answered through me].
5 For your mouth [saying God says] utters your iniquity, and you choose the tongue of the crafty [whose words are created by their own imaginations].
6 Your own mouth condemns you, and not I: yea, your own lips testify against you.
7 Are you the first man that was born [yes, because the LORD first brought me to life by His understanding He put in me]? or were you made before the hills?
8 Have you heard the secret of God? and do you restrain wisdom to yourself [saying He has told what He hasn’t told any other man]?
9 What know you, that we know not? what understand you, which is not in us?
10 With us are both the gray-headed and very aged men, much elder than your father.
11 Are the consolations of God small with you? is there any secret thing with you?
12 Why does your heart carry you away? and what do your eyes wink at,
13 That you turn your spirit against God, and let such words go out of your mouth?
14 What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous? [The LORD has declared it, and given it.]
15 Behold [the word of the accusers’ ignorance], he put no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.
16 How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinks iniquity like water?
17 I will show you, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare;
18 Which wise men [the Temanites – the wise men of the world even know these things] have told from their fathers, and have not hid it:
19 Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed among them.
20 The wicked man travails with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor [‘ariyts].
21 A dreadful sound [qowl – voice] is in his ears: [telling him] in prosperity [in his wealth] the destroyer shall come upon him.
22 He believes not that he shall return out of darkness [from his ignorance], and he is waited for of the sword.
23 He wanders abroad for bread [the word from the mouth of God], saying, Where is it? he knows that the day of darkness [when understanding reveals his ignorance] is ready at his hand.
24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they [his own fear of the things he has created: his own delusion] shall prevail against him, as a king [I Am] ready to the battle.
25 For he stretches out his hand against God, and strengthens himself against the Almighty.
26 He run upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers [he thinks his wealth shields him from God]:
27 Because he covers his face with his fatness, and makes collops of fat on his flanks.
28 And he dwells in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabits, which are ready to become heaps.
29 He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth.
30 He shall not depart out of darkness [he chooses to remain there, even when light has come into the world, because his deeds are evil]; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.
31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompense.
32 It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green.
33 He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive.
34 For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.
35 They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepares [to vomit out their] deceit.

The confusion in the above is that Eliphaz believes God doesn’t care that the wicked are destroying themselves as they destroy the world. They don’t know He’s come to save them, and any who repent and come to His light. These men’s delusion is that there is no God who comes to save the righteous and wicked (because they are all, without Him, incapable of saving anyone, including themselves).

Romans 11
25 For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles [who don’t know God] be come in.
26 And so all Israel [God people, who have a zeal for Him, but without knowledge of Him, which is manifested in His judgment and MERCY] shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness [asebeia] from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes.
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30 For as you [the elect remnant] in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief [that through you He shall show His mercy in judgment]:
31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God has concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
34 For who has known the mind of the LORD? or who has been his counselor?
35 Or who has first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Ezekiel 3
16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days [and the beginning of the next seven, when true prosperity comes as a new day], that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
17 Son of man, I have made you a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
18 When I say unto the wicked, You shall surely die; and you gives him not warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.
19 Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
20 Again, When a righteous man does turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand.
21 Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also you have delivered your soul.
22 And the hand of the LORD was there upon me; and he said unto me, Arise, go forth into the plain [into plain sight and tell them I Am speaking salvation to the world unable to save itself], and I will there talk with you.
23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory [manifested presence] of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar [far off in this time]: and I fell on my face.
24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spoke with me, and said unto me, Go, shut yourself within your house.
25 But you, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon you, and shall bind you with them, and you shall not go out among them:
26 And I will make your tongue cleave to the roof of your mouth, that you shall be dumb, and shall not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.
27 But when I speak with you [here and now], I will open your mouth, and you shall say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; He that heareth, let him hear [and live]; and he that forbears, let him forbear [and he shall not live]: for they are a rebellious house.

The Greek word asebeia, rendered “ungodliness” in Romans 11:26 above, a passage quoted from Isaiah 59:20 & 21, is the equivalent of the Hebrew word pesha’, rendered “transgression.” The Greek word is used five other times, all precisely describing it and how the LORD turns it away.

Romans 1
17 For therein [the gospel – the good news that the LORD comes to save all who receive Him] is the righteousness of God revealed from faith [in the elect remnant first] to faith [of those who hear and believe it is the LORD speaking His salvation to the world]: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness [asebeia] and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth [captive] in [their words of] unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them [that He is good, even coming to save them while they are His enemies speaking against Him]; for God has shown it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made [that now appear], even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened [the foundational ideas became ignorance].
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man [such as they are], and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things [all created things].

2 Timothy 2
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes [through whom this gospel shall be preached to the heirs of salvation], that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with [the manifestation in them of His] eternal glory.
11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him [to the old corrupt world], we shall also live with him [forever in the new]:
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
13 If we believe not, yet he abides faithful: he cannot deny himself.
14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the LORD that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings [of ignorance and corruption]: for they will increase unto more ungodliness [asebeia].

Titus 2
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation has appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness [asebeia] and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise you.

Jude 1
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly [asebeia – worthless words of ignorance and corruption] committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly [asebeo] sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaks great swelling [proud] words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage [because of their positions of power giving honor to their words of ignorance and corruption].
17 But, beloved, remember you the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our LORD Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly [asebeia] lusts.

Isaiah 59
1 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
2 But your iniquities [of your words against Him] have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perverseness.
4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleads for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

12 For our transgressions are multiplied before you, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions [pesha’] are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;
13 In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yea, truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense.
19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression [pesha’] in Jacob, says the LORD.
21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, says the LORD; My spirit that is upon you, and my words [as honey and strength] which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, nor out of the mouth of your seed, nor out of the mouth of your seed’s seed, says the LORD, from henceforth and forever.

The mercy of the LORD toward the delusional who don’t know Him, turning away their ungodliness (asebeia and persha’), is what the LORD in Elihu (meaning He is God speaking) describes in Job 35 & 36.

In the first (chapter 35), when (as in Romans 10:2 & 3) speaking to God’s people who have zeal without knowledge, who are trying to prove their own righteousness is more than God’s, He says this transgression (speaking ignorant and corrupt words against Him) does nothing to the LORD. They are trying to prove their ways and ideas are right, but they transgress more as they speak against Him.

In the second (chapter 36) He tells of His mission, coming to show man his errors and to correct him away from the inevitable death to which his ways are taking him.

Job 35
1 Elihu [the LORD God unknown in him] spoke moreover, and said,
2 Think you this to be right, that you said, My righteousness is more than God’s?
3 For you said, What advantage will it be unto you? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
4 I will answer you, and your companions with you.
5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds [where He holds His understanding when it has left the earth] which are higher than you.
6 If you sin, what do you against him? or if your transgressions [pesha’ – your words of ignorance and corruption against Him] be multiplied, what do you unto him?
7 If you be righteous, what give you him? or what receives he of your hand?
8 Your wickedness may hurt a man as you are; and your righteousness may profit the son of man.
9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.
10 But none says, Where is God my maker, who gives songs in the night;
11 Who teaches us more than the beasts [men without His Spirit] of the earth, and makes us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
12 There they cry, but none gives answer, because of the pride of evil men.
13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
14 Although you say you shall not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust you in him.
15 But now, because it is not so [because you don’t see His judgment before you and put your trust in Him], he has visited in his anger; yet he knows it not in great extremity:
16 Therefore does Job [God’s hated people, who think their ways are more right than God’s, and refuse His right way] open his mouth in vain; he multiplies words without knowledge.

Job 36
8 And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;
9 Then he shows them their work, and their transgressions [persha’ – that their word are ignorant and corrupt] that they have exceeded.
10 He opens also their ear to discipline, and commands that they return from iniquity.
11 If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.
13 But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he binds them.
14 They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.
15 He delivers the poor in his affliction, and opens their ears in oppression.

Job 33
13 Why do you strive against him? for he gives not account of any of his matters.
14 For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not.
15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumbering upon the bed;
16 Then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction,
17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

22 Yea, his soul draws near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.
23 If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show unto man his uprightness:
24 Then he is gracious unto him, and says, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.
25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s: he shall return to the days of his youth:
26 He shall pray unto God, and he will be favorable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.
27 He look upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;
28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.
29 Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,
30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light [understanding] of the living.

The delusion spoke of above: when men choose their own way and therefore don’t believe there is a God who comes to save them from the end they reach when following them (their own ways and ideas), is described in Isaiah 66:4. The word there rendered “delusion” is the twice used Hebrew word ta’aluwl, meaning “from 5953; caprice (as a fit coming on), i.e. vexation; concretely a tyrant:–babe, delusion.”

It is speaking of delusion as what is chosen and, therefore, logically, the resulting thoughts are delusions. This is recited in verse 3 in telling of those doing one thing and thinking of it “as if he” did another, in phrases which are reversed from their intended meaning.

Verse 3 should read “He that slew a man, is as if he kills an ox; he that cut off a dog’s neck, as if he sacrifices a lamb; he that offers swine’s blood, as if he offered an oblation; he that blessed an idol, as if he burnt incense. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations.”

The abominations put in the place of what they should be are delusions that result in delusional thinking in all areas. The chapter begins with the LORD asking about the house men have built for Him, which they have put in the place of the one the son of David will build for Him. He says he (the son – I Am) is the one He will look to, to build it. He is the man child born, who is the voice of the LORD heard rendering the deserved payment to His enemies. This is the LORD’s judgment and mercy, but, as Jonah says before he is vomited from the belly of hell, “They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.”

Isaiah 66
1 Thus says the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you [the proud] build unto me? and where is the place of my rest [is it among the abomination your put in My place]?
2 For all those things has mine hand made, and all those things have been, says the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.
3 He that slew a man, is as if he kills an ox; he that cut off a dog’s neck, as if he sacrifices a lamb; he that offers swine’s blood, as if he offered an oblation; he that blessed an idol, as if he burnt incense. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations.
4 I also will choose their delusions [ta’aluwl], and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spoke, they [the proud] did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
5 Hear the word of the LORD, you that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that renders recompense to his enemies.
7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says your God.

The replacement is spoken of in the only other time the word ta’aluwl appears, in Isaiah 3:4, there speaking of the delusional who replace the just leaders when the stay of bread and water is removed from Judah and Jerusalem. It (the stay) speaks of what supports good leadership, the underpinning, the foundation of God’s word and His way flowing to His people. Its removal and replacement lead to reproach and oppression, as when the seven women (the church) now say they “will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach.”

Isaiah 3
1 For, behold, the LORD, the LORD of hosts, does take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water.
2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,
3 The captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.
4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes [ta’aluwl – delusional oppressors] shall rule over them.
5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable.

12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.
13 The LORD stands up to plead, and stands to judge the people.
14 The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for you have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

Psalms 7
1 O LORD my God, in you do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
3 O LORD my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honor in the dust. Selah.
6 Arise, O LORD, in your anger, lift up yourself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that you have commanded.
7 So shall the congregation of the people compass you about: for their sakes therefore return you on high.
8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God tries the hearts and reins.
10 My defense is of God, which saves the upright in heart.
11 God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he has bent his bow, and made it ready.
13 He has also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordains his arrows against the persecutors.
14 Behold, he travails with iniquity, and has conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

The Consummation Decreed: Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today, and forever! Part I

The Consummation Decreed: Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today, and forever! Part I

Your prophets have seen vain and foolish things for you: and they have not discovered your iniquity, to turn away your captivity; but have seen for you false burdens and causes of banishment.

The above, Lamentation 2:14, speaks of what prophets do (turn way captivity by discovering iniquity), as opposed to what the false prophets have done (seen, worthless and foolish, false burdens).

Jeremiah, using the one-time used word madduwach, leads us to a deeper understanding of the “cause of banishment.” The LORD refers to the once he (Jeremiah) uses the four-times used Hebrew word duwach, in Jeremiah 51:34, rendered “he has cast me out.”

There it (duwach) is speaking of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, names we know describe the lies of the false prophets that led to the desolation of God’s people, which brought the confusion that now rules over all the world.

Jeremiah 51
33 For thus says the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war], the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon [confusion] is like a threshing-floor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest [God’s wrath] shall come.
34 Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon has devoured me, he has crushed me, he has made me an empty vessel, he has swallowed me up like a dragon [tanniyn – the serpents joined together as leviathan, as whales whose open mouths devour and hold God’s people captive in the belly of hell, as Jonah was there held – Jonah 2:2] he has filled his belly with my delicates, he has cast me out [duwach].
35 The violence done to me and to my flesh be upon Babylon, shall the inhabitant of Zion say; and my blood upon the inhabitants of Chaldea [those who use their words to deceive, manipulate, and control God’s people], shall Jerusalem say.
36 Therefore thus says the LORD; Behold, I will plead your cause, and take vengeance for you; and I will dry up her sea [end the words they send to the people at large], and make her springs dry.

45 My people, go you out of the midst of her, and deliver you every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD.
46 And lest your heart faint, and you fear for the rumor [shmuw’ah – this report, which is sound doctrine, which is heard but not believed – but to those who receive it the arm of the LORD is revealed, and they are in the presence of our LORD Jesus Christ at His coming] that shall be heard in the land; a rumor [shmuw’ah] shall both come one year, and after that in another year shall come a rumor [shmuw’ah], and violence in the land, ruler against ruler.

55 Because the LORD has spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered:
56 Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon [upon their confusion], and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken [chathath – dismayed]: for the LORD God of recompenses shall surely requite.
57 And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, says the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.

The shmuw’ah [hearing from Jehovah Himself], is spoken of three other times by Jeremiah. The first, in Jeremiah 10:22, is in the context of God’s people going “out of the midst of her [Babylon].” This (exodos) is as in Revelation 18:4 when the voice is heard from heaven, the LORD calling His people out of Babylon, as in Jeremiah 50:4 thru 10, when God’s people, leave confusion (Babylon) and seek the LORD their God.

Jeremiah 10
1 Hear you the word [the report] which the LORD speaks unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus says the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed [chathath] at the signs [‘owth] of heaven; for the heathen [who don’t know God] are dismayed [chathath] at them.

17 Gather up your wares out of the land, O inhabitant of the fortress.
18 For thus says the LORD, Behold, I will sling out the inhabitants of the land at this once, and will distress them, that they may find it so.
19 Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous; but I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.
20 My tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.
21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.
22 Behold, the noise of the bruit [shmuw’ah – the word heard from the mouth of Jehovah] is come, and a great commotion out of the north country [among the ignorant], to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons [tanniyn – mouths filled with venomous words that devours men].
23 O LORD, I know [yada’] that the way [derek] of man is not in himself [if left to himself]: it is not in man that walks [halak] to direct [kuwn – rightly establish] his steps.
24 O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in your anger, lest you bring me to nothing.
25 Pour out your fury upon the heathen that know you not, and upon the families that call not on your name: for they have eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate.

Jeremiah 50
1 The word that the LORD spoke against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans [again the confusion that rules the world and those that spew it from the lying mouths] by Jeremiah the prophet.
2 Declare you among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard [nec – raise the son of man as Moses raised the serpent in the wilderness]; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon [confusion] is taken, Bel [the men as idols you follow] is confounded, Merodach [your rebellion] is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.
3 For out of the north [from your ignorance] there comes up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.
4 In those days, and in that time, says the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.
5 They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.
6 My people has been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting-place.
7 All that found them have devoured them: and their adversaries said, We offend not, because they have sinned against the LORD, the habitation of justice, even the LORD, the hope of their fathers.
8 Remove out of the midst of Babylon [the midst of confusion], and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans [from those who use their lies and false accusation to manipulate and control the world into doing their evil], and be as the he goats before the flocks.
9 For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country [raised out of their ignorance]: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man [the LORD, who is a man of war]; none shall return [to Me] in vain.
10 And Chaldea [the liars in power] shall be a spoil: all that spoil her shall be satisfied, says the LORD.
11 Because you were glad, because you rejoiced, O you destroyers of mine heritage, because you are grown fat as the heifer at grass, and bellow as bulls;
12 Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert.
13 Because of the wrath of the LORD it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues.
14 Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all you that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she has sinned against the LORD.
15 Shout against her round about: she has given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she has done, do unto her.
16 Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handles the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
17 Israel is a scattered sheep; the lions have driven him away: first the king of Assyria [communists] has devoured him; and last this Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon [the lies of the false prophets, which cause the desolation and the confusion that now rules the world] has broken his bones.
18 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will punish [paqad – visit] the king of Babylon and his land, as I have punished [paqad – visited] the king of Assyria.
19 And I will bring Israel again to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel [the land that is again become as Eden] and Bashan [and they shall be fruitful], and his soul shall be satisfied upon mount Ephraim [My people in this generation] and Gilead [this mountain of My testimony].
20 In those days, and in that time, says the LORD, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.

The word above, in verses 2 & 9, telling of when the LORD, with His army, has “taken” Babylon, is lakad, meaning “to catch (in a net, trap or pit); generally, to capture or occupy; also to choose (by lot); figuratively, to cohere.”

It is speaking of when the lukewarm (the Medes) have awakened, come out of confusion’s tribulation, and become the LORD’s great army.

Jeremiah 51
28 Prepare against her [Babylon – confusion] the nations with the kings of the Medes, the captains thereof, and all the rulers thereof, and all the land of his dominion.
29 And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon, to make the land of Babylon a desolation without an inhabitant.
30 The mighty men of Babylon [because of the confusion they are bound in] have forborne to fight, they have remained in their holds: their might has failed; they became as women [weak and in fear]: they have burned her dwelling-places; her bars [that held God’s people in darkness] are broken.
31 One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to meet another, to show the king of Babylon that his city is taken [lakad – in the LORD’s net] at one end [the end of the old corrupt world under their control],
32 And that the passages [into hell by their open mouths] are stopped, and the reeds [what have grown in the mire of their confusion] they have burned with fire, and the men of war are [as women] affrighted.

Revelation 18
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she has filled fill to her double.
7 How much she has glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the LORD God who judges her.

Revelation 7
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God forever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 19
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword [this Word of God], that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords.

The “rod of iron” spoken of above, ultimately refers us to 2 Kings 6:6 as it is associated with Exodus 15:25. The latter tells of the “tree” (‘ets) the LORD showed Moses and told him to cast it into the bitter waters. In 2 Kings 6, it’s the “stick” (‘ets) the “man of God” said to cast into the Jordan, which caused the iron to swim. The word there rendered swim is tsuwph, meaning “to overflow:–(make to over-)flow, swim.” It (tsuwph – only used two other times, rendered “overflow” and “flow”) is telling of the iron covering the “branch,” and making it the “rod of iron” (rising above the waters, words, carrying all into death) in the hand of the hewer.

In Exodus 15, we are told of the tree cast into the bitter waters making them sweet, after Moses sang (wrote as given) the song unto the LORD, which begins with telling of throwing the oppressors into the sea, wherein the LORD has triumphed over them. He is the tree cast into the waters, and by His strength (His words as the sweetness of honey, the word of God from His mouth, as a man of war), He makes the waters drinkable for His people again.

Exodus 15
1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spoke, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host has he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them.

The words of the enemies, devil’s (the misleader’s mixed among us saying they are of us) lies and false accusations against the Word of God and the truth that is self-evident in (the experience of) our time, are the waters of the sea separated. They are those now awakening God’s people, the lukewarm who chose the waters above, as the earth itself (the experience of the moment – now most evident in the televised fictitious spectacle, the delusions of the Satanists) swallows up the flood of their evil words.

(FYI: they, the wicked in the deep state, the true insurrectionists who were in the process of overthrowing the sitting and reelected president, conspired and colluded to orchestrate, put on a show, act one of a delusion they produced to reverse define it as reality. They are known liars telling known lies, false accusers falsely accusing the innocent of doing what they’ve done. The only people they are fooling are themselves and the ignorant who blindly follow them and “the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”)

Revelation 12
12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil [the misleaders doing Satan’s work] is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. [See Romans 9:28 below]
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle [given strength by the words of those already strengthened], that she might fly [by this same strength, out of confusion] into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times [until the deep sleep is ended], and half a time [and the time and season are rightly divided: understood], from the face of the serpent.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood [poisonous words of deception] after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away [into death and hell] of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up [by understanding the experience of the moment] the flood which the dragon [the serpent in the sea, devouring any who follow his leading] cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Romans 9
13 As it is written, Jacob [God’s people, he predestined to be the heirs of salvation, who now awaken to it our their lukewarm sleep] have I loved [agapao – given my word to save him], but Esau [the devils among my people, claiming to be their countrymen and brothers, while at war with them to destroy the nation and culture] have I hated [those called the Nikolaitanes in Revelation 2:5 & 15, the name meaning they are the destroyers of God’s people].
14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
15 For he says to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
16 So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy.
17 For the scripture says unto Pharaoh [the house of the opressors], Even for this same purpose have I raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
18 Therefore has he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardens.
19 You will say then unto me, Why does he yet find fault? For who has resisted [Satan] his will?
20 Nay but, O man, who are you that replies [murmurs and chides] against God? Shall the thing form say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus?
21 Has not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor [from who we must be purged – 2 Timothy 2:21]?
22 What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared [predestined to inherit salvation] unto glory,
24 Even us, whom he has called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
25 As he says also in Hosea [2:23 – when God’s people hear Jezreel, those He’s sown in the earth, the seed below in verse 29, the first fruits, the elect remnant who call the sleeping body to awakes and come out of tribulation], I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.
26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, You are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.
27 Isaiah [in Isaiah 10:22 & 23] also cries concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved [first – see Isaiah 10 below]:
28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the LORD make upon the earth.
29 And as Isaiah said before, Except the LORD of Sabaoth [who is a man of war] had left us a seed [the elect remnant – who He raised to sow His word to those He’s predestined to be the heirs of Salvation], we had been as Sodom, and been made like unto Gomorrah.

Revelation 7
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation [thlipsis], and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb [which purged them away from the misleaders among them].
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sits on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Isaiah 10
1 Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed [these are the decrees of the wicked now in power, claiming they are for our good while in experience they are destroying lives, livelihoods, our nation, and better culture];
2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows [those whose men are the dead among us] may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless [without a fearless man to protect them]!
3 And what will you do in the day of visitation [pquddah], and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will you flee for help? and where will you leave your glory?

These wicked decrees are opposed to the right decrees then spoken of in Isaiah 10:22 & 23, which give us the meaning of Daniel 9:26 & 27, and what (the LORD pouring His strength upon us, anointing us with His understanding overflowing the wickedness of these deceivers) ends the war desolations.

Isaiah 10
20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the [elect] remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of [the sleep of] the house of Jacob [the people at large, still sleeping], shall no more again stay upon him that smote them [with lies and confusion]; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
21 The [elect] remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
22 For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption [killayown – only appearing here and in Deuteronomy 28:65, there saying it’s the “falling” of eyes, the sorrow of mind, and the fearfulness, the LORD says will come from following false gods mixed among His people] decreed [charats] shall overflow [shataph] with righteousness.
23 For the LORD God of hosts [who is a man of war] shall make a consumption [kalah], even determined [charats], in the midst of all the land [all the earth].
24 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, O my people that dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian [the communists]: he shall smite you with a rod [shebet – the scepter in his hand, the wicked in power ruling us into destruction], and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt.
25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction.

We are told, in Isaiah 28, what is determined (charats): the decree “overflowing” us with the LORD’s righteousness, His strength covering us as the “rod of iron” the scepter in His hand.

Isaiah 28
2 Behold, the LORD has a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing [shataph], shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

15 Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing [shataph] scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus says the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste [run away in shame].
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow [shataph] the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing [shataph] scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it [as straw into the dunghill].
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [shmuw’ah – this sound doctrine heard from the mouth of God].
20 For the bed is shorter than that a [sleeping] man can stretch himself on it [making the sleep uncomfortable for the lukewarm]: and the covering [of lies] narrower than that he can wrap [hide] himself in it.
21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim [as waters breaking forth upon David’s enemies], he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon [when His hail, His word frozen in heaven, is sent to destroy the enemies, the current crop of corrupt leaders], that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act [righteousness: judgment and mercy – which to a wicked world are strange].
22 Now, therefore, be you not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the LORD God of hosts a consumption [kalah – a full end: completion], even determined [charats] upon the whole earth.
23 Give you ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech [believe this report, hear it as it is, the Word of God from His mouth].

Daniel 9
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince [of darkness] that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war [you must accept this truth, it is these enemies mixed among warring against God’s people, to eradicate, make a fell end, of US] desolations are determined [charats – decreed in Deuteronomy 28:65].
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation [kalah], and that determined [charats – the decree] shall be poured upon the desolate.

Isaiah 40
21 Have you not known? have you not heard? has it not been told you from the beginning? have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22 It is he that sits upon the circle [the end of the corrupt and beginning the new] of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens [His understanding] as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in:
23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he makes the judges of the earth as vanity.
24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the [new] earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind [from where the word of the LORD God Almighty is heard] shall take them away as stubble.
25 To whom then will you liken me, or shall I be equal? says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who has created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one fails.
27 Why sayest you, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
28 Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the [the end of the old and beginning the new] earth, faints not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

The three times used word rendered “swim” (tsuwph) is rendered “overflow” in Deuteronomy 11:4, and “flow” in Lamentations 3:54. The first tells of the waters of the Red sea overflowing the enemy army pursuing us; the second describes the ways of this wicked army, the mouths of dragons from which the LORD delivers us.

Deuteronomy 11
1 Therefore you shall love the LORD your God, and keep his charge [“according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might war a good warfare” 1 Timothy 1:18], and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always.
2 And know you this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement [this correction] of the LORD your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm,
3 And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land [as He has done to those oppressing us here and now];
4 And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow [tsuwph] them as they pursued after you, and how the LORD has destroyed them unto this day;
5 And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until you came into this place;
6 And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram [the fountains from who flowed the bitter waters, murmuring against God’s chosen, exalting their words above His], the sons of Eliab [who act as if their father, who put himself in his father’s place, should rule and be followed as a god], the son of Reuben [the prince who is the pattern of the son of perdition, from whom the scepter is taken]: how the earth opened her mouth [the events, the experience of these days on the earth], and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel:
7 But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did.
8 Therefore shall you keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that you may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither you go to possess it;
9 And that you may prolong your days in the land, which the LORD swore unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed [He has sown into the earth], a land that flows with milk and honey [the word of God nourishing and giving strength].

Lamentations 3
46 All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.
47 [As You decreed] Fear and a snare is come upon us, desolation and destruction.
48 Mine eye run down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people.
49 Mine eye trickles down, and ceases not, without any intermission.
50 Till the LORD look down, and behold from heaven.
51 Mine [people’s failing] eye affects mine heart [foundational ideas] because of all the daughters of my city.
52 Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause.
53 They have cut off my life in the dungeon [here in the belly of hell], and cast a stone upon me.
54 Waters flowed [tsuwph] over mine head; then I said, I am cut off.
55 I called upon your name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon [as did Jonah].
56 You have heard my voice: hide not your ear at my breathing, at my cry.
57 You drew near in the day that I called upon you: you said, “Fear not.”
58 O LORD, you have pleaded the causes of my soul; you have redeemed my life.
59 O LORD, you have seen my wrong: judge you my cause.
60 You have seen all their vengeance and all their imaginations against me.
61 You have heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me;
62 The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day.
63 Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their music.
64 Render unto them a recompense, O LORD, according to the work of their hands.
65 Give them sorrow of heart, your curse unto them.
66 Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.

The relationship between the iron and honey, the sweetness and strength of God’s word overflowing (tsuwph) us with understanding, are seen in an identical twice used word tsuwph, meaning “from 6687 [tsuwph]; comb of honey (from dripping):–honeycomb.”

Proverbs 16
15 In the light [understanding] of the king’s countenance [presence] is life; and his favor is as a cloud [realizing in Him is the understanding that has left the earth] of the latter rain [sent as the Word of God from heaven].
16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
17 The highway of the upright is to depart [be corrected] from evil: he that keeps his way preserves his soul.
18 Pride goes before [brings the incorrigible to] destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 Better it is to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 He that handles a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusts in the LORD, happy is he.
21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increases learning.
22 Understanding [light] is a wellspring of life unto him that has it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, and adds learning to his lips.
24 Pleasant words are as a honeycomb [tsuwph], sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
25 There is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Psalms 19
1 The heavens [His understanding] declare the glory of God; and the firmament [where the waters are rightly divided] shows his handiwork [reveals the arm of the LORD].
2 Day unto day [in the light, to those who understand, it] utters speech, and night unto night shows [to the ignorant it is sent, again and again, to give] knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice [from the mouth of God] is not heard.
4 Their line [their right assessment of the earth’s condition, seeing all the foundations are out of course] is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the [old and corrupt] world. In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun [light rising of the new day, heaven and earth],
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices as a strong man [mighty in the strength of God’s understanding] to run a race [the course set before us].
6 His going forth is from the end of [the old corrupt] heaven, and his circuit [the course] unto the ends [ending of the old and beginning the new] of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb [tsuwph – when they, He, overflows us with His strength].
11 Moreover by them is your servant warned [of the end of the wicked, so we aren’t consumed with them]: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his [own] errors? cleanse you me from secret faults [of ignorance].
13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins [of pride]; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression [of vilifying and demonizing the work and word of the LORD].
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

The word of God contains a plethora of evidence that the bitter waters are the corrupt words of false prophets and false teachers, and that this bitterness deadens the mind of those who believe and follow them. These are the water below, of the earth, the creations of deceivers and the ignorant, which corrupt heaven (the places of understanding). The new heaven is when God sends the light in the firmament (the sweet and strong exposition of His word), separating the waters above from the waters below.

John, in Revelation 8:10 & 11, says the waters are made bitter when a great star, who is (the spirit of) Satan, falls from heaven (causing men to fall away from God and His truth). He says this star is as it were a burning lamp, which we know is a description of Christ in the furnace (Genesis 15:17) of the earth with us; here, thereby, describing the many false Christs the LORD speaks of in Matthew 24:24.

Revelation 8
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers [words follow to the people at large: into the sea], and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

The word “wormwood” (a poison) refers to the Hebrew word la’anah, and what the LORD says to us, of it, in His word.

Proverbs 5
1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow your ear to [exalt] my understanding:
2 That you mayest regard discretion, and that your lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
4 But her end is bitter as wormwood [la’anah], sharp as a two-edged sword [saying she has understanding, saying she is rightly dividing when she is creating ignorance and fiction].
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest you shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable [confused], that you can not know them.
7 Hear me now, therefore, O you children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

Jeremiah 23
14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem [now, among My people] a horrible thing: they commit adultery [with strange women], and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none does return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood [la’anah], and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness [as the vomit out the bitter poison they’ve swallowed] gone forth into all the land.
16 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD has said, You shall have peace [when there is war against us destroying us]; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.
18 For who has stood in the counsel of the LORD, and has perceived and heard his word? who has marked his word, and heard it?
19 Behold, a whirlwind [from where His voice is heard] of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.

Amos 5
4 For thus says the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek you me, and you shall live:
5 But seek [not these places where they’ve put idols in My place, which they call by My name] not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to naught.
6 Seek the LORD, and you shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel.
7 You who turn judgment to wormwood [la’anah], and leave off righteousness in the earth,
8 Seek him that made the seven stars and Orion, and turns the shadow of death into the morning, and makes the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:
9 That strengthens [with His honey] the spoiled against the strong [in power], so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress [the lies by with they hold the world captive in hell].
10 They hate him [the seventh angel sounding] that rebukes in the gate [calling God’s people to leave hell and enter His kingdom], and they abhor him that speaks uprightly.

John, in Revelation 10, describes the seventh angel, whose voice is the seventh (last) trumpet sounding, who receives the word of God from heaven, which is in His mouth as sweet as honey. He says it is in his belly bitter, meaning he must repeat it (vomit it from himself) as received. This aspect is then described in the following verse (11), saying he must repeat it (must prophesy again).

As we understand, Revelation 10 is John speaking of what he learned from reading Ezekiel, as he described the life in the word of God passed forward to give understanding to those to whom it was sent (the cycle of receiving, understanding, sending, and repeating: which he describes as a wheel within a wheel, in which is life from the mouth of God).

Ezekiel 3
1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that you find; eat this roll [mgillah – the volume of the book], and go speak unto the house of Israel.
2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll [mgillah].
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause your belly to eat, and fill your bowels with this roll [mgillah] that I give you. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey [dbash] for sweetness.
4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get you unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
5 For you are not sent to a people of a strange speech and of a hard language, but to the house of Israel;
6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of a hard language, whose words you can not understand. Surely, had I sent you to them, they would have hearkened unto you.
7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto you; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
8 Behold, I have made your face strong against their faces [as one cherubim faces the other at the mercy seat, and between them, in the conversation, I will manifest my presence in mercy and judgment], and your forehead strong against their foreheads.
9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed [chathath – when you see this sign] at their looks [as they are dismayed at what they are seeing], though they be a rebellious house.
10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words [the roll] that I shall speak unto you receive [eat] in your heart, and hear with your ears.
11 And go, get you to them of the captivity, unto the children of your people, and speak [repeat] unto them, and tell them, Thus says the LORD God; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing [of waters – as an earthquake shaking their world], saying, Blessed be the glory [presence] of the LORD from his place.
13 I heard also the noise [qowl – the voice] of the wings [of the cherubim] of the living creatures that touched one another [giving and receiving life by the word of God], and the noise [qowl – the voices] of the wheels over against them, and a noise [qowl – the voice, His word spoken by me] of a great rushing [skaking the world].
14 So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness [vomiting what I had eaten], in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me.
15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib [this mountain of the flood], that dwelt by the river of Chebar [by which I saw far off], and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days.
16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
17 Son of man, I have made you a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
18 When I say unto the wicked, You shall surely die; and you give him not warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.
19 Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
20 Again, When a righteous man does turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand.
21 Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also you have delivered your soul.
22 And the hand of the LORD was there upon me; and he said unto me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with you [in the plain sight to those I send you].
23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar [which I, by His word, saw far off – now when the word is repeated, opened to those in need of its life]: and I fell on my face.
24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spoke with me, and said unto me, Go, shut yourself within your house [shut what you understanding and utter it not, because it is the voice of the seventh angel, the seven thunders unspoken until now].
25 But you, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands [of their confusion] upon you, and shall bind you with them [their false prophecies and false teaching], and you shall not go out among them:
26 And I will make your tongue cleave to the roof of your mouth [the voice of understanding shall not be heard], that you shall be dumb, and shall not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.
27 But when I speak with you [again], I will open your mouth, and you shall say unto them, “Thus says the LORD God; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear:” for they are a rebellious house.

Revelation 10
1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud [with the understanding held in heaven]: and a rainbow [the light rightly divided as its {coat of many} colors are seen] was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun [the light of the new day], and his feet as pillars of fire [one like the son of man, walking in the fires with us]:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open [this word of God]: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven [the sound of understanding, of the seven colors of the (coat) rainbow] thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not [because they are reserved for the one whose right it is to rule {I Am}].
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And swore by him that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared [decreed] to his servants the prophets.

Jeremiah 10
12 He has made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens by his discretion.
13 When he utters his voice [His seven thunders], there is a multitude of waters in the heavens [word of understanding], and he causes the vapors to ascend [the water above are separated from the waters below] from the ends [ending the old and beginning the new] of the earth; he makes lightnings with rain [understanding by sending His purified, distilled, word from heaven], and brings forth the wind [the work of His Spirit, of which man is ignorant] out of his treasures [giving these words that are more valuable than any other thing].

Revelation 10
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spoke unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which stands upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter [and I knew I had to repeat what I had eaten].
11 And he said unto me, “You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”

Hebrews 10
5 Wherefore when he comes into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared me:
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you have had no pleasure.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do your will, O God.
8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin you would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do your will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till [now when] his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For by one offering he has perfected forever them that are sanctified [declared, decreed, holy].
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest [the known presence of the LORD] by the blood of Jesus [Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh],
20 By a new and living way, which he has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
21 And having a high priest [Timothy in who the LORD has risen] over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together [into ONE BODY], as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and has done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, says the LORD. And again, The LORD shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great fight of afflictions;
33 Partly, whilst you were made a gazing-stock [were held up for public mocking] both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst you became companions of them that were so used.
34 For you had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that you have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompence of reward.
36 For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise.
37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition [apoleia]; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

2 Peter 1
10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall:
11 For so an entrance [into His kingdom] shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.

16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our LORD Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. [Hear you him.]”
18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation [not from anyone’s imagination].
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost [the LORD unknown in them speaking and working].

2 Peter 3
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily [from their own imaginations] shall bring in damnable [apoleia] heresies, even denying the LORD that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction [apoleia].
2 And many shall follow their pernicious [apoleia] ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingers not, and their damnation [apoleia] slumbers not.

Daniel 12
… and there shall be a time of trouble [tsarah – this tribulation], such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.

2 Peter 3
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition [apoleia] of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night [unknown to the ignorant]; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise [the voice of God as thunders], and the elements [stoicheion – the corrupt foundational ideas of wicked men] shall melt with fervent heat [from the word of God released from heaven, unto fire], the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements [stoicheion] shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our LORD is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrestle, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction [apoleia].
17 You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall [away into fables created from men’s imaginations] from your own steadfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

Psalms 81
1 Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon [the new government come into the darkness], in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.
5 This he ordained in Joseph [that his seed, Shiloh, would be sown in the earth to sit on his throne] for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt [oppression]: where I heard a language [of lies] that I understood not.
6 I removed his shoulder from the burden [of unbelieves]: his hands were delivered from the pots.
7 You called in trouble [tsarah – this tribulation], and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder: I proved you at the waters of Meribah [strife – where they rebelled against the word of God]. Selah.
8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto you: O Israel, if you will hearken unto me;
9 There shall no strange god be in you; neither shall you worship any strange god.
10 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt [out of oppression]: open your mouth wide, and I will fill it [with My words].
11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels.
13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways!
14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured forever.
16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey [dbash – the word of God eaten and repeated] out of the rock [the flesh in who the LORD manifest His presence: by His word flowing from them] should I have satisfied you.

1 Corinthians 10
1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that you should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
2 And were all baptized unto Moses [drawn from the waters below] in the cloud [into the waters above, in heaven where understanding is separated] and in the sea [where the people were separated by what they believed, the misleaders they followed until the LORD gathered them again in the destruction of the oppressing and pursuing army];
3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat [this strengthening word of God];
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
7 Neither be you idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
10 Neither murmur you, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends [old and new] of the world are come.
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he stands take heed lest he fall.
13 There has no temptation [doubting God is with us] taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted [doubt] above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.
14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
15 I speak as to wise men; judge you what I say.
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
17 For we being many are one bread, and ONE BODY: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

The word “escape,” in verse 13 above, is the Greek word ekbasis, “(meaning to go out); an exit (literally or figuratively):–end, way to escape.” Its other use, in Hebrew 13:7, tells us the escape is the “end” we reach, which it there describes.

Hebrews 13
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follows, considering the end [ekbasis – the escape] of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace [life given as a gift from God, reestablishing right foundations]; not with meats [dead flesh of men without His Spirit], which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

The End!

My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me. Are there not mockers with me? and does not mine eye continue in their provocation?

My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me. Are there not mockers with me? and does not mine eye continue in their provocation?

The word above rendered “corrupt” is the Hebrew word chabal, meaning “to wind tightly (as a rope), i.e. to bind; specifically, by a pledge; figuratively, to pervert, destroy; also to writhe in pain (especially of parturition [giving birth]).”

It (chabal) is here, in a pattern, describing the LORD’s word’s bound, held back, by His people, who refuse to give them as received, and therefore, the world languishes in the subsequent desolation (lacking the good this world needs).

As we know, Paul, in 2 Thessalonians 3, tells us we should pray for deliverance from unreasonable and wicked men who are not giving God’s word free course. We know he is speaking of what he wrote to them in 1 Thessalonians 2, first (in verse 12) of God calling them into His kingdom, and then of their recognizing (in verse 13) it came by His word received as the word of God (Him calling – as it is) as His word.

This is followed (in verse 14 thru 18) by Paul describing Satan’s working (his false doctrines, deceptions in those receiving his words), “with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9 & 10)

In 1 Thessalonians 2, he (Paul speaking of the mystery of iniquity already at work – katecho, withhold) says it’s their own countrymen “Forbidding us to speak to the gentiles [those who don’t know the true God] that they might be saved.” He then speaks of His desire to be unified with them, hindered by the resistance of Satan (rebellion against God and His work).

He, in 1 Thessalonians 2:19 & 20, speaking of them receiving the word of God as His presence and kingdom with them, says, “For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even you in the presence of our LORD Jesus Christ at his coming? For you are our glory and joy.”

His (Paul’s) “glory and joy” is them receiving the word the LORD spoken through him, (as through me), as God’s glory seen in him, as it is the glory in those who receive Him and shine forth the same glory. They, being born again by receiving the LORD, are his joy. This is the same “joy” I seek, to hear the children God has given me, His great and innumerable army, His ONE BODY, speak the same things they’ve heard of the LORD in me (working and speaking the salvation of the world).

Now, these men, sitting in the seats of God, resist and oppose Him. They refuse the very simplest of commands to subordinate their words to His. These are those joined with Satan in His work (the work of the world’s communists in church and state): a confederacy bent on misleading (with promises of utopia) the world headlong into destruction (together in hell’s mass misery).

Those leading God’s people, in the face of this, as He tells us in Isaiah 8:6, “refuse the waters of Shiloah that go softly,” and instead chose to listen to those who brought darkness and distress as a cover over all the world. (As we know, the waters of Shiloah are the words of peace flowing from God, as the river that runs under Jerusalem, yarah shalam, flowing, teaching, pointing out the way of peace: reciprocal security of life, liberty, and property: for which security of these rights, just governments are instituted. The communists are the godless who don’t believe in rights and now tyrannically seek to disarm and eradicate all who resist them.)

Isaiah 8
7 Now, therefore, behold, the LORD bringeth up upon them the waters of the river [the words wherein dwells the death of men and nations], strong and many, even the king of Assyria [the communists], and all his glory: and he shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks:
8 And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of your land, [a state into which God manifests His presence, to combat the attacks of evil] O Immanuel.
9 Associate yourselves, O you people, and you shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all you of far countries: gird yourselves, and you shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and you shall be broken in pieces.
10 Take counsel together [with the wicked misleaders], and it shall come to naught; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.
11 For the LORD spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,
12 Say you not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear you their fear, nor be afraid.
13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
16 Bind up THIS testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait upon the LORD [who is the prince come to take the throne and rule the world in righteousness], that hides his face [His presence in him] from the house of Jacob, and I will look for [diligently seek] him.
18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs [‘owth] and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion.
19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits [of the dead who now rule the world], and unto wizards that peep [casting their evil spell over the ignorant], and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? [Should they be looking] for the living to [among] the dead?
20 [Shouldn’t they be looking] To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to THIS word, it is because there is no light [understanding] in them.
21 And they [those confederate with ignorance] shall pass through it [without understand that has come], hardly bestead and hungry [without THIS word of God]: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king [I Am] and their God, and look upward [for the false god they’ve created and put in God’s place].
22 And they shall look unto the [desolate] earth; and behold trouble [tsarah – tribulation] and darkness [ignorance], dimness of anguish [the earth covered in mass misery]; and they shall be driven to darkness [greater delusions, with which the wicked in power control the ignorant masses].

Jeremiah, the LORD rising in Him to raise His ONE BODY, says, in Jeremiah 23:22, speaking of the desolation of the ruling class among His people, church, and nation, because they refused His word and instead listened to the destroyers, says if they would have given His word as He commanded, this destruction could have been avoided. He says the men who are forbidding His word from flowing to the world are saying it, THIS word, is a burden. The LORD says, the unbearable burden is these men’s words, the corrupt advice that is never meant to bring what they promise, and when it doesn’t they continue with greater deception, which can and does only bring increased destruction of life, liberty, and property, which is their true goal.

Jeremiah 23
1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD.
2 Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; You have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited [paqad] them: behold, I will visit [paqad] upon you the evil of your doings, says the LORD.
3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed [chathath – at these signs in heaven: knowing it is where I reside and knowing the place of the wicked], neither shall they be lacking [paqad – they shall visit Me in my place, to receive My understanding], says the LORD.
5 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will raise unto David [I Am] a righteous Branch [in the house of Joseph], and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely [united under one King]: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The LORD Our Righteousness.
7 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD lives, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
8 But, The LORD lives, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country [the earth covered darkness], and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land [in My house with Me].
9 Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake [of My dead body]; I am like a drunken man [whose mind has become irrational], and like a man whom wine has overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.
10 For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourns; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.
11 For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, says the LORD.
12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness [ignorance]: they shall be driven on [into greater delusion], and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation [pquddah], says the LORD.
13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria [who worship idols they call by God’s name in vain]; they prophesied in Baal [the idol of the world], and caused my people Israel to err.
14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none does return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
16 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD has said, You shall have peace; and they say unto everyone that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.
18 For who has stood in the counsel of the LORD, and has perceived and heard his word? who has marked his word, and heard it?
19 Behold, a whirlwind [from where the LORD God Almighty speak] of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he has executed, and till he has performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days you shall consider it perfectly [biyn biynah – understanding it with full understanding].
21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
22 But if they had stood [‘amad – if they had taken their stand] in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
23 Am I a God at hand [qarowb – near in your mouths only], says the LORD, and not a God afar off [rachowq – far from your reins]? [“you {LORD} are near {qarowb} in their mouth, and far {rachowq} from their reins {their inner thoughts}.” Jeremiah 12:2]
24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? says the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? says the LORD.
25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal [the idols they’ve created].
28 The prophet that has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that has my word, let him speak my word [THIS word] faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? says the LORD.
29 Is not my word like as a fire? says the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, says the LORD, that steal [take away what isn’t theirs] my words every one from his neighbor.
31 Behold, I am against the prophets, says the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He says.
32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, says the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness [their recklessness]; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, says the LORD.
33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask you, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? you shall then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, says the LORD.
34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.
35 Thus shall you say every one to his neighbor, and every one to his brother, What has the LORD answered? and, What has the LORD spoken?
36 And the burden of the LORD shall you mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for you have perverted [chaphak – changed and overturned] the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] our God.
37 Thus shall you say to the prophet, What has the LORD answered you? and, What has the LORD spoken?
38 But since you say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus says the LORD; Because you say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, You shall not say, The burden of the LORD;
39 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence:
40 And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.

The “visiting” mentioned above is the LORD in us manifesting His presence, in “pure religion” visiting those who don’t have a real man, (a man) without weakness or self-interest, to lead them.

The Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary gives the meaning of paqad as, “to visit (with friendly or hostile intent); by analogy, to oversee, muster, charge, care for, miss, deposit.”

We know from (paqad appearing therein) Psalms 8:4 being quoted in Hebrews 2:6 that the Greek equivalent is episkeptomai, meaning “to inspect, i.e. (by implication) to select; by extension, to go to see, relieve.”

These words speak of the LORD mustering and sending His army to the world with the good it needs, which is not just hearing the word but doing as He commands. This is the strength and glory of God, revealed through us, in us as we speak the word He has ordained.

Isaiah 13
1 The burden of Babylon [the burden is the word of confusion, Babylon, that now rules the world], which Isaiah [those whom Jehovah has saved] Jehovah the son of Amoz [born by His strength] did see [understand].
2 Lift you up a banner [nec – the pole upon which the son of man must be lifted, so those who look to him, see him and receive His understanding, will not be affected by the serpents among them destroying with their venomous words] upon the high mountain, exalt the voice [of the LORD] unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.
3 I have commanded my sanctified ones [who I have separated and declared, for my work of pure religion], I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.
4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] musters [paqad] the host [army] of the battle.
5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy [chabal – the effect of holding back this word of God] the whole land [which has corrupted the whole earth].
6 Howl you; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travails [bringing forth the ONE BODY]: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames [as His angels, His messengers, mistering spirits sent forth to minister to those who are the heirs of salvation].
9 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light [because the understanding in them is darkness]: the sun [the church institutions] shall be darkened [shall be seen tobe without understanding] in his going forth, and the moon [civil governments] shall not cause her light to shine [the corrupt understanding in them shall be realized to be corruption].
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man [I Am] more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens [the old corrupt understanding], and the earth shall remove out of her place [so the new heaven and earth come], in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.
15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them [the wicked and their work] shall fall by the sword [this word of God from His mouth].
16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.
17 Behold, I will stir up [into flame] the Medes [the people who were before neither cold nor hot] against them, which shall not regard [chashab – the thought will not be controlled by] silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.
18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children.
19 And Babylon [the confusion that rules the world], the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency [the lies told by these known liars, their false accusations with which they manipulate and control the ignorant, deluded, and insane], shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian [neither shall they mix among them] pitch tents there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there [in confusion].
21 But wild beasts [without the good Spirit of the LORD] of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls [who hunt these souls in the darkness] shall dwell there, and satyrs [devils – misleading he-goats] shall dance there.
22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons [leviathan, serpents joined together, whose venom poisons minds of those their mouths then devour] in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

The word “prolonged” above is the Hebrew word mashak, meaning “to draw, used in a great variety of applications (including to sow, to sound, to prolong, to develop, to march, to remove, to delay, to be tall, etc.).” It tells of those the LORD draws into open sight, into the light that destroys them.

Job 24
1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days [when His light is shining upon the earth]?

22 He draws [mashak – draws out into His light] also the mighty [the wicked] with his power: he rises up, and no man is sure of life.
23 Though it be given him [the wicked] to be in safety, whereon he rests; yet his [the LORD’s] eyes are upon their ways.
24 They [the wicked] are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off.

The words “cut off” are from the four times used word namal, referring to Psalms 37, where it is rendered “cut down.”

Psalms 37
1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be you envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down [namal] like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and truly you shall be fed.
4 Delight yourself also in the LORD: and he shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth your righteousness as the light [understanding], and your judgment as the noonday [when understanding has fully risen].
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not yourself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not yourself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, you shall diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plot against the just, and gnashed upon him with his teeth.
13 The LORD shall laugh at him: for he sees that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

The good the LORD says to do, speaking His word which is this world’s good, is the work for which He sends us, His messengers. It, His word, this word, is what draws the wicked into the light, exposing the darkness they think protects them.

Isaiah 18
1 Woe to the land [the earth] shadowing with wings [of the wicked], which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia [in which we see the result of the words and work of darkness]:
2 That sends ambassadors by the sea [sends its confusing messages to the people of the world], even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, you swift messengers, to a nation scattered [mashak – draw out] and peeled [mowrat – obstinate, stubbornly refusing to change], to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers [of confusion and ignorance] have spoiled!
3 All you inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see you [understand what you are seeing], when he lifts up an ensign [nec – when He has lifted me as Moses lifted the serpent in the wilderness] on the mountains; and when he blows a trumpet [this voice of the LORD, calling all His people to gather, muster, to Him, In ONE BODY], hear you.
4 For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear [air – in plain sight] heat upon herbs [as they, the wicked, wither], and like a cloud [understanding] of dew in the heat of harvest [in His wrath].
5 For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.
6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.
7 In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] of a people scattered and peeled [from the people drawn out, who had refused to be changed], and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.

The “present” brought to the LORD, by the masses who come out of the tribulation after they see His glory and strength in you, hearing this word from you, is from the three time used Hebrew word shay, meaning “a gift,” (brought by wise men who see the star).

Psalms 68
28 Your God has commanded your strength: strengthen, O God, that which you have wrought for us.
29 Because of your temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents [shay] unto you.
30 Rebuke the company of spearmen [word the wicked], the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter you the people that delight in war.
31 Princes shall come out of Egypt [out of oppression]; Ethiopia [those covered in darkness – the ignorant] shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
32 Sing unto God, you kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the LORD; Selah [stop and THINK]:
33 To him that rides upon the heavens of heavens [speaks from the place of full understanding], which were of old; lo, he does send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.
34 Ascribe you strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel [all those who by faith become His children], and his strength is in the clouds [where understand was held when it left the earth].
35 O God, you are terrible out of your holy places: the God of Israel is he that gives strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.

Psalms 76
1 In Judah [among His elect remnant – His first fruits] is God known: his name is great in Israel [among all those who by faith become His children corrected and changed].
2 In Salem [peace] also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
3 There brake he the [wicked’s] arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah [Think].
4 You are more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
5 The stouthearted [proud] are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
7 You, even you, are to be feared: and who may stand in your sight when once you are angry?
8 You did cause judgment to be heard from heaven [from your understanding]; the earth feared, and was still,
9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah [THINK].
10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise you: the remainder of wrath shall you restrain.
11 Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents [shay] unto him that ought to be feared.
12 He shall cut off the [evil] spirit of princes: he is terrible to the [wicked] kings of the earth.

Hebrews 12
25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven [the voice of the LORD speaking full understanding]:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 1
10 And, You, LORD, in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands:
11 They shall perish; but you remainest; and they all shall wax old as does a garment;
12 And as a vesture shall you fold them up, and they shall be changed: but you are the same, and your years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Hebrews 2
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2 For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward;
3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the LORD, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
5 For unto the angels has he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that you are mindful of him? or the son of man that you visit [episkoptomai] him?
7 You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor, and did set him over the works of your hands:
8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
10 For it became him, for who are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11 For both he that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 Saying, I will declare your name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto you.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God has given me.

Revelation 7
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God forever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation [thlipsis], and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood [of the long suffering] of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sits on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Isaiah 25
7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering [the lies of men] cast over all people, and the vail [of confusion] that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the LORD God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD has spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab [the gates of hell – the mouths of wicked men] shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.

James 1
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be you doers [poietes – performers] of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving [paralogizomai – deluding] your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer [poietes – poets, resighting the word received, not just hearing], he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholds himself, and goes his way, and straightway forgets what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridles not his tongue, but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit [episkoptomai] the fatherless and widows [those without a real man to lead them and care for them] in their affliction [thlipsis – tribulation], and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

The word paralogizomai, meaning “to misreckon, i.e. delude:–beguile, deceive,” only appears one other time, in Colossians 2:4.

Colossians 2
1 For I would that you knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea [meaning they are the church in this generation, who must awaken from its lukewarm state into flaming fire, bringing “justice to the people”], and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together [in ONE BODY] in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile [paralogizmai – delude] you with enticing words.
5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.
6 As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the LORD, so walk you in him:
7 Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments [stoicheion – the corrupt elements, foundational principles] of the world, and not after Christ.
9 For in him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And you are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also you are circumcised [removing the flesh from your minds, so you see and understand the Spirit within] with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also you are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who has raised him from the dead.

The word “operation” is the Greek word energeia, which refers us to its use in Ephesians 1:19 & 3:17, which there, as here, speak of the power (preaching His word) of God that raised us from the dead.

Ephesians 1
17 That the God of our LORD Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working [energeia] of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that fills all in all.

Ephesians 3
3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
4 Whereby, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
6 That the Gentiles [those who don’t know God] should be fellow-heirs [of His salvation], and of the same [ONE] body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working [energeia] of his power.
8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our LORD:
12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
13 Wherefore I desire that you faint not at my tribulations [thlipsis] for you, which is your glory.

The mystery of the effectual working of God’s word in us, as we know from 1 Thessalonians 2:13, comes when the word of God we preach is, by faith, received as His word, as it is. This is the realization, the epiphany, that the receiver is in the presence of the LORD Jesus Christ at His coming.

1 Thessalonians 2
11 As you know how we exhorted and comforted [the LORD in me unknown, leading you into all truth] and charged every one of you, as a father does his children,
12 That you would walk worthy of God, who has called you unto his kingdom and glory.
13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when you received the word of God which you heard of us, you received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually works [energeo] also in you that believe [that it is Him speaking].

19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even you in the presence of our LORD Jesus Christ at his coming?
20 For you are our glory and joy.

Ephesians 4
13 Till we all come in the unity [ONE BODY, by ONE MIND of Christ] of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of [false] doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive [the “wiles” of the devil, methodeia, his methods – only used here and Ephesians 6:11];
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working [energeia] in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying [building up – by educating] of itself in love [agape – pure religion, giving these treasures, as God has given them to us].
17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the LORD, that you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
20 But you have not so learned Christ;
21 If so be that you have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
22 That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24 And that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man [God’s] truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.
26 Be you angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.

Ephesians 6
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the LORD, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles [methodeia – methods] of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness [ignorance] of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Psalms 8
1 O LORD, our LORD, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who have set your glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
4 What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit [paqad] him?
5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD our LORD, how excellent is your name in all the earth!

Therefore, they say unto God, “Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of your ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?”

Therefore, they say unto God, “Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of your ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?”

The above is Job, in Job 21:14 & 15, speaking of the wicked, in power and prosperity, saying they have no need for God. Toward the end of the chapter, Job says he knows the devices these men (his so-called friends who are ignorant of the fact they are the wicked through whom Satan is working, speaking with darkened counsel), which they wrongfully imagine against him.

Job 21
27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which you wrongfully imagine against me.
28 For you say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?
29 Have you not asked them that go by the way? and do you not know their tokens,
30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.
31 Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he has done?
32 Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.

The questions asked above refer us to the LORD’s answering them in Job 38 when He speaks from the whirlwind. He above asks, don’t you know these, knowing the places of the prince and the wicked, are their “tokens,” from the Hebrew word ‘owth, meaning “a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.:–mark, miracle, (en)sign, token.”

It (‘owth) is the word the LORD used to tell us, in Jeremiah 10:2, these are “signs” in the heavens, at which we should not be “dismayed,” from the word chathath, meaning “to prostrate; hence, to break down, either (literally) by violence, or (figuratively) by confusion and fear.”

The word is telling of the difference seen in the result of following the advice of the prince (the king in waiting) and that of the wicked. The latter is following the wicked anit-saviors (antichrist) now ruling our nation and the world using hate-filled lies (claiming they are salvation) to deceive people into continuing with them into self-destruction: the perdition of those who receive not the love of the truth. The truth, the love (agape) of God giving His good advice, comes from those these same antichrists dehumanize (divest of human rights), vilify, and now seek to disarm and eradicate. These are the tokens, signs in the heavens (known to the enlightened) now seen plainly.

God’s people, your pastors and prophets will tell you to sit still and stay quiet (make no mention of the LORD here speaking truth to corrupt powers). They refuse to acknowledge the evil now destroying our nation and culture. Their ignorance is well known to the destroyers, and joining them, they continue to deny the reality we see and (these weaklings of the faith) are thereby cowardly complicit in the plot. These men are the leaders of the feminized (fearful, soft, and comfortable therein) church with its twisted ideas of peace and love: perverting their true meanings, they hold down (katecho) the (lukewarm) BODY, and there hold it until taken out of the way.

The church needs a man to lead it, a king who isn’t afraid, “Who shall declare his [the wicked’s] way to his face and who shall repay him [with truth brought to light, exposing] him what [wickedness] he has done.”

Revelation 3
13 He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans [meaning they are the church in this generation, who must awaken and bring “justice to the people”] write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the [new] creation of God;
15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot.
16 So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
17 Because you say, “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;” and know not that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked:
18 I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire [these treasures of heaven, God’s understanding revealed], that you may be rich; and white raiment [of purity], that you may be clothed [with My righteousness], and that the shame [of not reaching what your false prophets and false teachers said they saw and understood] of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye-salve [this eye-opening truth], that you may see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten [correct]: be zealous therefore, and repent [come back to the path from which you’ve strayed].
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Jeremiah 10
1 Hear you the word which the LORD [here and now] speaks unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus says the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed [chathath] at the signs [‘owth] of heaven; for the heathen [those who don’t know Me, and haven’t received My understanding] are dismayed [chathath – are confused and in fear, because they have no idea, are ignorant of, what they are signs of] at them.
3 For the customs of the people are vain [worthless – because they are idols, fabrications of men, they follow and blindly worship]: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5 They are upright as the palm tree [I Am], but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is great in might.
7 Who would not fear you, O king of nations? for to you does it appertain [the once used word ya’ah – the origin of the name Jehovah – Yah-hovah, self-existent, self-manifesting into the ruin, to from its dust and ashes create what is good]: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto you.
8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities [wothlessness – it is self-evident the ways of men who reject God {oblivious of Him while lying about knowing Him}, in ignorance, are destroying lives and livelihoods, men and nations].
9 [These men create idols of] Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men.
10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.
11 Thus shall you say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the [new] earth, and from under these [new] heavens.
12 He has made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens by his discretion.
13 When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens [these words of understanding], and he causes the vapors [the elements of understanding] to ascend from the ends [the end of the old and beginning] of the [new] earth; he makes lightnings [understanding coming] with rain [His purified word from heaven], and bringeth forth the wind [the whirlwind, His Almighty Spirit, from where He speak] out of his treasures.
14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath [life] in them.
15 They are vanity [worthless], and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation [pquddah] they shall perish [lose themselves – selling their souls into death and hell].
16 The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he is the former of all things; and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: The LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] is his name.
17 Gather up your wares out of the land, O inhabitant of the fortress.
18 For thus says the LORD, Behold, I will sling out the inhabitants of the land at this once, and will distress them, that they may find it so [that they will realize their condition and their wound can be healed].
19 Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous; but I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.
20 My tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.
21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.
22 Behold, the noise of the bruit is come, and a great commotion out of the north country [darkness that is upon the earth], to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons [tanniyn – jackals, whales, serpents, men is whose mouths is venom – mouths they open wide and swallow down their prey].
23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
24 O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in your anger, lest you bring me to nothing.
25 Pour out your fury upon the heathen that know you not, and upon the families that call not on your name: for they have eaten [swallowed] up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate.

The word rendered “perish,” in verse 11 above, when telling of the end of the idol: men as beasts (leviathan, serpents, whales, and dragons {crocodiles}), is the seven times used word ‘abad (Strong’s #7). It (#7 ‘abad) is the Aramaic (Chaldee) version of the Hebrew word ‘abad (Strong’s #6), which appears later, in verse 15 above, also telling of when these men and their works of error “perish” when the LORD we’ve waited for (with His truth) visits.

When ‘abad (#7) appears above, it is the only time outside of its six uses in Daniel 2 & 7, which refer to the coming of the LORD, Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh (Jesus), therein described.

Daniel 2 speaks of the vision Nebuchadnezzar (the blinding lies of false prophets that caused the desolation of God’s people) saw but didn’t understand until the judgment of God (Daniel) came and showed the meaning to him (them). It speaks of the final kingdom when God’s people are mixed with their enemies: here and now when our strength (understanding) is mired (confused) by mixing it with clay. It is here the LORD’s mercy appears toward the false prophets and so-called wise men of Babylon, whose own ways and ideas (their misleadings) have them at the point of self-destruction.

Daniel 2
1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to show the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.
3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.
4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live forever: tell your servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation.
5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if you will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, you shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
6 But if you show the dream, and the interpretation thereof, you shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honor: therefore show me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.
7 They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation of it.
8 The king answered and said, I know of certainty that you would gain the time [say it was something that will happen “some time” in the distant future – and thereby buy time for yourselves], because you see the thing is gone from me.
9 But if you will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for you have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can show me the interpretation thereof.
10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can show the king’s matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
11 And it is a rare thing that the king requires, and there is none other that can show it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy [‘abad] all the wise men of Babylon.
13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.
14 Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king’s guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:
15 He answered and said to Arioch the king’s captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.
16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would show the king the interpretation.
17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:
18 That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish [‘abad] with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.
19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven [Who from there gives understanding].
20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God forever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
21 And he changes the times and the seasons [by giving understanding and revealing things held in secret]: he removes kings, and sets up kings: he gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
22 He reveals the deep and secret things: he knows what is in the darkness [hidden in men’s ignorance], and the light [understanding] dwells with him [which is the ‘owth, the sign of His house, His family].
23 I thank you, and praise you, O you God of my fathers, who have given me wisdom and might [strength of iron], and have made known unto me now what we desired of you: for you have now made known unto us the king’s matter.
24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch [a lion-like man], whom the king had ordained to destroy [‘abad] the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy [‘abad] not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will show unto the king the interpretation.
25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.
26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar [“LORD of the straitened’s treasure” – who reveals them], Are you able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king has demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, show unto the king;
28 But there is a God in heaven that [from there] reveals secrets, and makes known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days [now]. Your dream, and the visions of your head upon your bed [while you slept in death], are these;
29 As for you, O king, your thoughts came into your mind upon your bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that reveals secrets makes known to you what shall come to pass.
30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that you might know the thoughts of your heart [your own mind, of which you have become ignorant].
31 You, O king, saw, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the form thereof was terrible.
32 This image’s head was of fine gold [its beginning was of the greatest value, through its full understanding, but as it progressed it descended, finally into ignorance where it became of lesser and lesser value], his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34 You saw till that a stone [who the build rejected] was cut out without hands [the only begotten of God without any man’s help], which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them [and the old world is now ended]: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain [Zion, God’s rule on the earth], and filled the whole earth.
36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
37 You, O king, are a king of kings: for the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven has he given into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You are this head of gold [God’s kingdom created in perfection, descended into sleep and death].
39 And after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
40 And the fourth kingdom [the US] shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. [see Isaiah 24 below]
41 And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.
42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43 And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men [enemies they will mix among them who will weaken them to destroy them]: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
45 Forasmuch as you saw that the stone [I Am] was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odors unto him.
47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a LORD of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing you could reveal this secret.
48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.
49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

The Chaldee word used twice above, in verse 24, to tell of the final mired (confused) kingdom “breaking” and “bruising” all the earth, is r’a’, which only appears here. It refers us to its Hebrew equivalent, ra’a’, appearing in Isaiah 24:19, where it tells of the earth’s current condition.

Isaiah 24
24 Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.
3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD has spoken this word.
4 The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, and broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore has the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
7 The new wine mourns, the vine languishes, all the merry-hearted do sigh.
8 The mirth of tabrets ceased, the noise of them that rejoice ended, the joy of the harp ceased.
9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.
10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.
11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened [by ignorance], the mirth of the land is gone.
12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.
13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.
14 [From the ruin of the earth] They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.
15 Wherefore glorify you the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.
16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.
17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.
18 And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.
19 The earth is utterly broken [ra’a’] down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
20 The [old] earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited [paqad].
23 Then the moon [the corrupt civil governments] shall be confounded, and the sun [the corrupt church] ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

Isaiah 25
1 O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2 For you have made of a city a heap; of a defenced [the fortress of lies in which they trust] city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify you, the city of the terrible nations shall fear you.
4 For you have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
5 You shall bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.
6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations [the lies and falsehood under which they think they hide, ignorance with which they think they can keep secret the LORD among us – this uncovering is the apocalypse; meaning taking away the cover, by His revelation].
8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the LORD God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD has spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab [the gate of hell – the mouths of men] shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim [rightly dividing the waters]: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
12 And the fortress [in which they trust] of the high fort of your walls [of lies] shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust [the ruin of the earth from where man is created in the new heaven and earth].

The other two times Daniel uses the Chaldee word ‘abad, in Daniel 7, they further define the fourth kingdom and the stone sent against it. He (the stone) is the one described, in Hebrews 12:2, as Author and Finisher of our faith, who with us comes in a cloud of witnesses, enduring the contradiction of sinner (who need His correction) opposing Him.

Jude 1
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness [ignorance] forever.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouths speak great swelling [pride filled] words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage [their positions].
17 But, beloved, remember you the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our LORD Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our LORD Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling [harpazo] them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Hebrews 12
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not you the chastening of the LORD, nor faint when you are rebuked of him:
6 For whom the LORD loveth he chastens, and scourgeth every son whom he receives.
7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chastens not?
8 But if you be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are you bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

Daniel 7
9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days [God’s wisdom] did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels [the understand He brought with Him] as burning fire.
10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the [sealed] books were opened.
11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke [against God]: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed [‘abad], and given to the burning flame.
12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven [with understanding], and came to the Ancient of days [with the wisdom of God], and they brought him near before him.
14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me [because I realized the enemies of God were those of His own people].
16 I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.
17 These great beasts [the jackals, serpents, whales, and dragons, devouring with their mouths], which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.
18 But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.
19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spoke very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
21 I beheld, and the same horn [the power now ruling the world in confusion] made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
22 Until the Ancient of days [God’s wisdom] came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first [he is the king of Babylon – the confusion that now rules in all civil governments of the world], and he shall subdue three kings.
25 And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times [the times of Abraham’s deep sleep in the furnace] and the [rightly] dividing of [understanding of this] time.
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [‘abad] it unto the end.
27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

When Job, above in Job 21, tells of the sign (‘owth), in knowing the house of the prince and the dwelling of the wicked, He is speaking of this word from heaven revealing them.

Job 38
17 Have the gates of death been opened unto you [so you can enter heaven]? or have you seen the doors [the gates of hell] of the shadow of death?
18 Have you perceived the breadth [the time of its end and this new beginning] of the earth? declare if you know it all.
19 Where is the way where light dwelleth [in the house of the prince]? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof [the dwelling place of the wicked],
20 That you shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that you shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
21 Know you it, because you were then born? or because the number of your days is great [as is the Ancient of Days, the wisdom of God]?
22 Have you entered into the treasures of the snow? or have you seen the treasures of the hail, [this word of God frozen in heaven]
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

34 Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters [God’s word from heaven] may cover you?
35 Can you send lightnings [understanding of it], that they may go and say unto you [you doubters and murmurers], “Here we are [Here I Am]?”
36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart?

Psalms 74
1 O God, why have you cast us off forever? why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your pasture?
2 Remember your congregation, which you have purchased of old; the rod of your inheritance, which you have redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein you have dwelt.
3 Lift up your feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy has done wickedly in the sanctuary.
4 Your enemies roar in the midst of your congregations; they set up their ensigns [‘owth] for signs [‘owth].
5 A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.
6 But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
7 They have cast fire into your sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of your name to the ground.
8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
9 We see not our signs [‘owth]: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knows how long.
10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme your name forever?
11 Why withdraw you your hand, even your right hand? pluck it out of your bosom.
12 For God is my king of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 You did divide the sea by your strength: you brake the heads of the dragons in the waters.
14 You break the heads of leviathan [men who’ve joined together against the LORD and His people] in pieces, and gave him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15 You did cleave the fountain and the flood: you dried up mighty rivers [of their words corrupting all the world].
16 The day is yours, the night also is yours: you have prepared the light and the sun [understanding to unite your people in ONE BODY of Christ].
17 You have set all the borders [end and beginning] of the earth: you have made summer and winter [times and seasons].
18 Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed your name.
19 O deliver not the soul of your turtledove [I and the children God has given me, who are the signs in heaven – see Isaiah 8:18] unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of your poor forever.
20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places [the dwelling of the wicked and ignorant] of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise your name.
22 Arise, O God, plead your own cause: remember how the foolish man reproaches you daily.
23 Forget not the voice of your enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against you increase continually.

The “turtledove” above, from the word towr, meaning dove, is speaking of those who know the time and season we’re in, alive among the sleeping dead at this end of the old world and beginning the new.

Jeremiah 8
1 At that time, says the LORD, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, [all the dead misleading My People] out of their graves:
2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon [before the church and civil governments they’ve corrupted], and all the host of heaven [all their army that says it has understanding, who use their falsely so-called wisdom to fight against the LORD with us, in us], whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung [the dead in living flesh] upon the face of the earth.
3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, says the LORD of hosts.”
4 Moreover you shall say unto them, “Thus says the LORD; ‘Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?
5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.
6 I hearkened and heard, but they spoke not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rushes into the battle [against the LORD they don’t know].
7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knows her appointed times; and the turtle [towr – the dove] and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not [this time of] the judgment of the LORD.
8 How do you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.’
9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?
10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace;’ when there is no peace.
12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, says the LORD.
13 I will surely consume them, says the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.'”
14 Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God has put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD.
15 We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble!
16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.
17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, says the LORD.
18 (When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me.)
19 Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country [far from the house of the prince among them]: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities?
20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.
21 For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment has taken hold on me [My dead body].
22 Is there no balm in Gilead [in this mountain of testimony]; is there no physician there [to bring them the cure]? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered? [the answer is, because they reject the prescribed course of treatment, and instead insist they are not ill, even without it unto choosing death!]

Job 30
8 They [the wicked] were children of fools, yea, children of base men: they were viler than the earth.
9 And now am I their song, yea, I am their byword.
10 They abhor me, they flee far from me, and spare not to spit in my face.
11 Because he has loosed my cord, and afflicted me, they have also let loose the bridle before me.
12 Upon my right hand rise the youth; they push away my feet, and they raise up against me the ways of their destruction.
13 They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, they have no helper.
14 They came upon me as a wide breaking in of waters: in the [their] desolation they rolled themselves upon me.
15 Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the wind: and my welfare passes away as a cloud [understanding they’ve refused].
16 And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me.
17 My bones are pierced in me in the night season [the time of ignorance]: and my sinews take no rest.
18 By the great force of my disease is my garment changed: it binds me about as the collar of my coat.
19 He has cast me into the mire, and I am become like dust and ashes [of the earth in ruin – where He’s sent me, to raise those who receive Him].
20 I cry unto you, and you do not hear me: I stand up, and you regard me not.
21 You are become cruel to me: with your strong hand you oppose yourself against me. [2 Timothy 2: 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them REPENTANCE TO THE ACKNOWLEDGING OF THE TRUTH; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil {the misleaders they are joined with}, who are taken captive by him at his will.]
22 You lift me up to the wind; you cause me to ride upon it, and dissolve my substance.
23 For I know that you will bring me to death [the dwelling place of the wicked], and to the house appointed for all living [the house of the prince].
24 Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the grave [as He has, to pull {harpazo} the dead from the fires of hell into life], though they cry in his destruction.
25 Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? was not my soul grieved for the poor?
26 When I looked for good, then evil came unto me: and when I waited for light [for understanding to take hold of the sleeping dead], there came darkness [there came continuing ignorance and rejection].
27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
28 I went mourning without the sun [without the church]: I stood up, and I cried in the congregation.
29 I am a brother to dragons [tanniyn], and a companion to owls [who hunt souls in the darkness].
30 My skin is black upon me [My body, the church, is covered by ignorance], and my bones are burned with heat.
31 My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.

John 6
16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum [the place of the Comforter, who leads into all truth]. And it was now dark [ignorance cover the world], and Jesus was not come to them.
18 And the sea [all the world’s people] arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea [walking among the agitated people], and drawing nigh unto the ship [the church]: and they were afraid.
20 But he says unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship [the church] was at the land whither they went.
22 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there [there was no other church other than His ONE BODY], save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the LORD had given thanks:)
24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum [the place where the Comforter, the LORD unknown, is leading all who come to him into all truth], seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when came you here?
26 Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say unto you, You seek me, not because you saw the miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27 Labor not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him has God the Father sealed.
28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent.
30 They said therefore unto him, What sign show you then, that we may see, and believe you? what do you work?
31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat [which is this testimony, from the house of the prince waited for, the son of the king, the son of Joseph the King].
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven [this word from the mouth of God, by which man lives].
33 For the bread of God is he which comes down from heaven [the full understanding of God the Father], and gives life unto the world.
34 Then said they unto him, LORD, evermore give us this bread.
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.
36 But I said unto you, That you also have seen me [the Father in me], and believe not.
37 All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father’s will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I Am the bread which came down from heaven.
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he says, I came down from heaven?
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.
46 Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father [in the son].
47 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.
48 I Am that bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I Am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Psalms 27
1 The LORD is my light [understanding] and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh [my words, thinking they were merely flesh], they stumbled and fell.
3 Though a host [the army of the wicked] should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident [in the Father who lives in me].
4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me [as His Prince] in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock [who is Christ in me, the living God].
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When you said, Seek you my face [presence]; my heart said unto you, Your face [presence], LORD, will I seek.
9 [Let all the people of God say] Hide not your face [presence] far from me; put not your servant away in anger: you have been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine [wicked] enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the LORD [who will manifest His presence to those who, in faith, receive Him]: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

I Daniel [the Judgment of God] understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

I Daniel [the Judgment of God] understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

The above, from Daniel 9:2, is Daniel speaking of when the “man Gabriel” was sent to give him understanding, after he first understood the cause of the desolation, of which he confessed and openly repented.

As we know, the name Gabriel is said to mean “man of God” and “warrior of God,” descriptions only used of Timothy in the New Testament. In Daniel, “man” is from the word ‘iysh, which is meant to refer us to its use, in Hosea 2:16, describing the pattern of the LORD’s visiting to end the desolation of His people (Jerusalem).

Hosea 2
13 And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim [the idols they put in My place, which brought their desolation], wherein she burned incense to them, and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers, and forgot me, says the LORD.
14 Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her [leading her into understanding all truth].
15 And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor [trouble – tribulation] for a door of hope [out of the belly of hell and into heaven, full understanding, with Me]: and she shall sing there [the words I have put in her mouth], as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt [recorded in Exodus 15, a chapter ending with telling of the Tree as cast into the bitter waters of strife, as Jonah was cast in the stormy sea, into the belly of hell and death, from where he repented and was raise to Keep His vow and do the work God set before Him].
16 And it shall be at that day, says the LORD, that you shall call me Ishi [man]; and shall call me no more Baali [you shall no longer call your idols by My name – taking My Name in vain].
17 For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.
18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them [referring to Jeremiah 31:31 thru 34] with the beasts of the field and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely [when I have put my words in their minds, and they’ve learned the way of true peace, when every man knows Me].
19 And I will betroth you unto me forever; yea, I will betroth you unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.
20 I will even betroth you unto me in faithfulness: and you shall know the LORD.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, says the LORD, I will hear the heavens [a man of God receiving His understanding], and they shall hear the earth;
22 And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel [from zara’ – they shall hear the word “God sows” in the earth].
23 And I will sow [zara’] her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, “You are my people [heard from heaven];” and they shall say, “You are my God [heard from the earth].”

Jeremiah 31
1 At the same time, says the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.
2 Thus says the LORD, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.
3 The LORD has appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn you.
4 Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin of Israel: you shall again be adorned with your tabrets, and shall go forth in the dances of them that make merry.
5 You shall yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.
6 For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise you, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.
7 For thus says the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish you, praise you, and say, O LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel.
8 Behold, I will bring them from the north [dark] country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travails with child together: a great company shall return thither.
9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
10 Hear the word of the LORD, O you nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock.
11 For the LORD has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.
12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, says the LORD.
15 Thus says the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not. [They have not yet cast the Tree into the sea, to make their bitterness sweet.]
16 Thus says the LORD; Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears: for your work shall be rewarded, says the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.
17 And there is hope in your end, says the LORD, that your children shall come again to their own border.
18 I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; You have chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn you me, and I shall be turned; for you are the LORD my God.
19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.
20 Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, says the LORD.
21 Set you up waymarks, make you high heaps: set your heart toward the highway, even the way which you wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities.
22 How long will you go about, O you backsliding daughter? for the Lord has created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.
23 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The LORD bless you, O habitation of justice, and mountain of holiness.
24 And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all the cities thereof together, husbandmen, and they that go forth with flocks.
25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
26 Upon this I awaked, and beheld; and my sleep was sweet unto me.
27 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will sow [zara’] the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast.
28 And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, says the LORD.
29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.
30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge. [men shall not be held responsible for the sin of their ancestors, or their own in the old world, but rather, for their own actions and words in the new world, after full understanding has come].
31 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them, says the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
35 Thus says the LORD, which gives the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divides the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:
36 If those ordinances depart from before me, says the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.
37 Thus says the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, says the LORD.
38 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that the city shall be built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel [the LORD’s appearing to those God has favored] unto the gate of the corner [the gate of turning: repentance: coming out of the belly of hell into heaven].
39 And the measuring line [properly assessing the condition of God’s people in desolation] shall yet go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb [their wound shall be seen, and healing shall begin], and shall compass about to Goath [and they shall humble themselves, as in the valley of Achor: in the tribulation].
40 And the whole valley of the dead bodies [the condition of all, except the very elect remnant who’ve already received Him], and of the ashes [the ruin of the earth, in the fires of hell], and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron [they shall understand death and hell are produced by the waters of darkness], unto the corner [and understanding, they shall return] of the horse [strength] gate [out of hell into heaven] toward the east [from where come the light: understanding, of the new day, the new heaven and earth, where dwells righteousness], shall be holy unto the LORD; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more forever.

Daniel 9
3 And I set my face unto the LORD God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:
4 And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O LORD, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from your precepts and from your judgments:
6 Neither have we hearkened unto your servants the prophets, which spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
7 O LORD, righteousness belongs unto you, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither you have driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against you.
8 O LORD, to us belongs confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you.
9 To the LORD our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;
10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
11 Yea, all Israel has transgressed your law, even by departing, that they might not obey your voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.
12 And he has confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven has not been done as has been done upon Jerusalem.
13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand your truth.
14 Therefore has the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he does: for we obeyed not his voice.
15 And now, O LORD our God, that have brought your people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and have gotten you renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.
16 O LORD, according to all your righteousness, I beseech you, let your anger and your fury be turned away from your city Jerusalem, your holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people are become a reproach to all that are about us.
17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of your servant, and his supplications, and cause your face to shine upon your sanctuary that is desolate, for the LORD’s sake.
18 O my God, incline your ear, and hear; open your eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by your name: for we do not present our supplications before you for our righteousnesses, but for your great mercies.
19 O LORD, hear; O LORD, forgive; O LORD, hearken and do; defer not, for your own sake, O my God: for your city and your people are called by your name.
20 And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God;
21 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.
22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give you skill and understanding.
23 At the beginning of your supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show you; for you are greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon your people and upon your holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy [after that which is determined has been poured out, as it has, revealing the LORD’s presence in the son of man, who is His chosen king].
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street [the way] shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous [tsarah -in the tribulation] times.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined [charats – decreed].
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation [kalah – #3617], and that determined [charats – decreed] shall be poured upon the desolate [as it has].

These are the days decreed, which only the Father (in me) knows.

Job 14
4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one [except the LORD, at the appointed time of the change].
5 Seeing his days are determined [charats – decreed], the number of his months are with you, you have appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;
6 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as a hireling, his day.
7 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;
9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
10 But man dies, and wastes away: yea, man gives up the ghost, and where is he?
11 As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decays and dries up:
12 So man lieth down, and rise not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.
13 O that you would hide me in the grave, that you would keep me secret, until your wrath be past, that you would appoint me a set time, and remember me!
14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
15 You shall call, and I will answer you: you will have a desire [and keep your vow] to the work of your hands.

Hosea 2
23 And I will sow [zara’] her [dead bodies] unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy [and I will raise them to life that is in the light]; and I will say to them which were not my people, “You are my people [heard from heaven];” and they shall say, “You are my God [heard from the earth].”

Daniel, in the title verse refers us to Jeremiah 25, which he is referencing in total. The chapter, in a now repeated pattern, tells, as does Daniel above, how all the world came to be desolate (chorbah – meaning “drought, i.e. (by implication) a desolation;” without the waters: the word of God, from above).

Jeremiah 25
…the word of the LORD has come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early [the first begotten from the dead, by the hand of the Almighty – see Genesis 49:22 thru 26] and speaking; but you have not hearkened.
4 And the LORD has sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but you have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.
5 They said, Turn you again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD has given unto you and to your fathers forever and ever:
6 And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.
7 Yet you have not hearkened unto me, says the LORD; that you might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.
8 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts; Because you have not heard my words,
9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north [the ignorant nations of the earth], says the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon [the lies of false prophets and false teachers mixed among you, bringing desolation, who will rule over the corrupt world with their confusion and delusions], my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and a hissing [draw attention to them], and perpetual desolations [chorbah].
10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones [those doing the work of God, the daily sacrifice of giving His word of judgment, mercy, and the knowledge of His presence], and the light of the candle [and there shall be no understand to see the way in the darkness: their ignorance].
11 And this whole land shall be a desolation [chorbah], and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon [the rule of confusion] seventy years [until this appointed time].
12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, says the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans [those who use their lies to manipulate and control the world into desolation], and will make it [the incorrigible liars mixed among us] perpetual desolations.
13 And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations.
14 For many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of them also: and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.
15 For thus says the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it.
16 And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.
17 Then took I the cup at the LORD’s hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me:
18 To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation [chorbah], an astonishment, a hissing, and a curse; as it is this day;
19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people;
20 And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,
21 Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon,
22 And all the kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea,
23 Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners,
24 And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell in the desert,
25 And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes,
26 And all the kings of the north [darkness], far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
27 Therefore you shall say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war], the God of Israel; Drink you, and be drunken, and spew, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you.
28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at your hand to drink, then shall you say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts; You shall certainly drink.
29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, says the LORD of hosts.
30 Therefore prophesy you against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout [of the archangel, the last trumpet calling all to gather in ONE BODY to Him], as they that tread the grapes [of His wrath], against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 A noise shall come even to the ends [the end of the old and the beginning of the new] of the earth; for the LORD has a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, says the LORD.
32 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind [from where this voice of the LORD is heard] shall be raised up [in the son of man, as Moses raised the serpent in the wilderness] from the coasts of the earth [the end of the earth, when God gathers His people, and they sing the song of Moses – See Jeremiah 31:7 thru 9 above].
33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung [living flesh without the LORD’s Spirit] upon the ground.
34 Howl, you shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, you principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and you shall fall like a pleasant vessel.
35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.
36 A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard: for the LORD has spoiled their pasture.
37 And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
38 He has forsaken his covert, as the lion: for their land is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and because of his fierce anger.

The “controversy” the LORD speaks of, above in verse 31, is from the word riyb, meaning “a contest (personal or legal).” Above it’s when He is pleading with all flesh, making His case to settle the “controversy,” which we understand is about who will (through better ways and ideas) rule the world, Him or the antichrists now controlling it in death and hell where they’ve led it. The song of Moses is sung when God’s people realize He is the one whose argument is victorious, and they gather to Him.

Isaiah 34
8 For it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy [riyb] of Zion.
9 And the streams thereof [the word of men deceiving and destroying the world] shall be turned into pitch [seen as darkness], and the dust [the ruin of the earth] thereof into brimstone, and the land [earth] thereof shall become burning pitch.

Isaiah 41
9 You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called you from the chief men thereof, and said unto you, You are my servant; I have chosen you, and not cast you away.
10 Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.
11 Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive [riyb] with you shall perish.
12 You shall seek them, and shall not find them, even them that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing, and as a thing of naught.
13 For I the LORD your God will hold your right hand, saying unto you, Fear not; I will help you.
14 Fear not, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel; I will help you, says the LORD, and your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 Behold, I will make you a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: you shall thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shall make the hills as chaff.
16 You shall fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind [the voice of the LORD heard through your song] shall scatter them: and you shall rejoice in the LORD, and shall glory in the Holy One of Israel.
17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue fails for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:
20 That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.
21 Produce your cause [riyb – argue against My rule], says the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, says the King of Jacob.
22 Let them bring them forth, and show us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
23 Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.
24 Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of naught: an abomination is he that chooses you [the antichrists of this world to continue their rule of the world].

1 John 2
20 But you have an unction from the Holy One, and you know all things.
21 I have not written unto you because you know not the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ [the appointed flesh: the son in whom the Father dwells]? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father: he that acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 Let that [the Father] therefore abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning. If that which you have heard from the beginning [from the son] shall remain in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise that he has promised us, even eternal life [to which He raised us together with the son].
26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
27 But the anointing [that Father giving us His Spirit] which you have received of him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him.
28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

1 John 4
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know you the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: [1 Timothy 3:14 These things write I unto you, hoping to come unto you shortly: 15 But if I tarry long, that you may know how you ought to behave yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.]
3 And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he [the Father] that is in you, than he [the spirit of antichrists who have no faith] that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world hears them.
6 We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Exodus 15
1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spoke, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host has he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them.
13 You in your mercy have led forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength unto your holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina [the invading army who hasn’t assimilated into our better ideas and are at war with us, to destroy our nation and our better culture].
15 Then the dukes of Edom [the enemies mixed among us] shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab [whose words are the gates of hell], trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan [who’ve exalted themselves above God and their words above His words] shall melt away.
16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still as a stone; till your people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which you have purchased.
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which you have made for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign forever and ever.
19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.
20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
21 And Miriam answered them, Sing you to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur [the wall – lies corrupting the waters in which the people trusted]; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah [this time and place of bitter waters], they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD showed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet [when the corruption was removed]: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved [tried the spirits in the waters] them,
26 And said, If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians [your oppressors]: for I am the LORD that heals you [by healing the waters].
27 And they came to Elim [to the palm tree – I Am], where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.

Psalms 96
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; show forth his salvation from day to day [which is the daily sacrifice we make].
3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
6 Honor and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7 Give unto the LORD, O you kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
10 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigns: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13 Before the LORD: for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
