But you are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.

But you are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.

The LORD begins today in the above, Isaiah 65:11, speaking to His people who “seek” Him, finding Him differently than foretold by the false prophets they blindly follow, they reject the remedy He prescribes. This dilemma is what He speaks of later, in Matthew 21:28 thru 31; in a parable amid His defining two distinctly different groups.

The Matthew passage begins below with His casting out the thieves in the temple, calling them moneychangers and those who sold doves. As we know, doves are most often used to indicate a sign of the end. Here in context, it’s specifically about the false prophets of our time who make a living telling people where to look and when the end will come.

Matthew 21
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.
14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,
16 And said unto him, Hearest you what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have perfected praise?
17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany [the houses of misery – in tribulation]; and he lodged there.
18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only [this is the sign of the end the LORD tells of in parable in Matthew 24:32 & 33, when there are only leaves and no fruit, and He sends His angels with His message and understanding, to gather fruit outside the old nation and churches, to Him alone], and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on you hence forward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Truly I say unto you, If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if you shall say unto this mountain [the corrupt establishments of church and state], Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea [when the poeple realize these resposibilies {the whole duty of man, now when a “state of nature” exists] are theirs, and can only be counted on when trusting God the Father to guide us into them]; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive [God will provide a way].
23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority do you these things? and who gave you this authority?
24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.
25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did you not then believe him?
26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
28 But what think you? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work today in my vineyard.
29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went [as His angel to gather the fruit].
30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not [as do those sitting still in the old churches and state, depending on them to do the LORD’s work].
31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Truly I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and you believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that you might believe him.
33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When the LORD therefore of the vineyard comes, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42 Jesus saith unto them, Did you never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner [gonia – pinnah]: this is the LORD’s doing, and it is marvelous in [opening] our eyes?
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. [Isaiah 66:8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such {a marvelous} 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 {her fruit}.]
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.
46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

The word rendered “moneychangers” is the Greek word kollubistes, “a presumed derivative of kollubos (a small coin; probably akin to 2854); a coin-dealer.” It only appears three times, all telling of this same event, which is in actuality telling of the LORD beginning His work to free His people from those who’ve seized and hold them.

As seen in previous posts, the prefix kollao (kolla) means to stick, as in whose word and ides a person has joined with and is thereby marked as belonging to (the mark of ownership). The context in this parable adds light to the LORD’s telling of His coming as a thief, against thieves who’ve stolen and hold what is His.

The word (kallubistes) is compounded from kolla and a derivative of lambano, forming a word engineered to also refer us to the word bastazo (kolla-bastazo). The words, in a multi-faceted means, describes the men (moneychangers) as those with who God’s people are joined (kolla), who seized and hold them (lambano), who are those who will be removed (bastazo).

These men, the “troop” and “number” mention in the title verse, are those Paul speaks of in 2 Thessalonians 2, saying they are those who “withhold” and “let” God’s people, who will do so, until they are “taken” (ginomai – until the fulfillment, when the word of God refreshes this generations) out of the “way” (mesos – out of our mists).

Friends, as Isaiah says in Isaiah 28:19, “the only vexation is to understand the report.” As we know, this “report” is the LORD’s sound “doctrine” taught, precept upon precept, line upon line. It’s also the “rumor” of the LORD’s presence manifested, which is censored from public mention by those holding down (katecho) God’s people with their lying signs and wonder, the working of Satan. This is the mystery of iniquity Paul refers to in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 & 12, speaking of these men who’ve seized what is God’s and sit in His seat opposing His “report,” saying “for this cause God shall send them strong delusion (the COVID HOAX allowed to take them out of the way), that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

The two distinct groups are separated into the those who’ve unknowingly found the LORD who is their salvation; and those who claim they are looking for Him, who will never find Him by following the ways of those who’ve misled them into desolation and hell. The dilemma is, the misleaders in the old reversed and totally corrupt world (Sodom and Gomorrah, in flame and ruin) are said to be the most upright among us, while inwardly they are ravening wolves, whose evil fruit is the desolation of God’s people and nation. Because of this world’s disorder, when the foundations are destroyed, when corrupt judgment rules in church and state, the Father sent me (into this “state of nature,” into the wilderness, after the collapse of civilization {without the protection of a rule of just laws and not the whims men}), declaring me His son, to judge the world as He justly judges.

John 5
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also does the Son likewise.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and shows him all things that himself does: and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
21 For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; even so the Son quickens whom he will.
22 For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son:
23 That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him.
24 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25 Truly, truly, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32 There is another that bears witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesses of me is true.
33 You sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that you might be saved.
35 He was a burning and a shining light: and you were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father has given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father has sent me.
37 And the Father himself, which has sent me, has borne witness of me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
38 And you have not his word abiding in you: for whom he has sent, him you believe not.
39 Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
40 And you will not come to me, that you might have life.
41 I receive not honor from men.
42 But I know you, that you have not the love of God in you.
43 I am come in my Father’s name, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive.
44 How can you believe, which receive honor one of another, and seek not the honor that comes from God only?
45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuses you, even Moses, in whom you trust.
46 For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
47 But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words?

When the LORD refers to what Moses “wrote of me,” among many others, He is today speaking of Deuteronomy 31, when we have come into this Promised Land. It’s after we have crossed over Jordan, the descent into death, by the words of men carrying there all the world. The LORD says it is as we now see, when His face (paniym – His presence among us as it is always) is hidden, by ignorance, the darkness, taught and encouraged by this evil generation. And now seeing it, none believe, because they have fallen into the control, the hand, of the foretold false prophets and false teachers mixed among us as angels of light.

2 Corinthians 11
10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia [this time of the tribulation].
11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knows.
12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we [men in and through who a spirit is working: God in us, and in them, Satan].
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
16 I say again, let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little.
19 For you suffer fools gladly, seeing you yourselves are wise.

Deuteronomy 31
1 And Moses went and spoke these words unto all Israel.
2 And he said unto them, I am a hundred and twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in: also the LORD has said unto me, You shall not go over this Jordan.
3 The LORD your God, he will go over before you, and he will destroy these nations from before you, and you shall possess them: and Joshua [Jesus – Jehovah’s Salvation personified in the flesh body of the perpetual son], he shall go over before you, as the LORD has said.
4 And the LORD shall do unto them as he did to Sihon and to Og [warriors, the last of the giants], kings of the Amorites [who mouths are ever open, exalting their words against God’s], and unto the land of them, whom he destroyed.
5 And the LORD shall give them up before your face [paniym, when His presence is manifest in you], that you may do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have commanded you [see Matthew 7:24 thru 29 below].
6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD your God, he it is that does go with you; he will not fail you, nor forsake you.
7 And Moses called unto Joshua [Jesus], and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for you must go with this people unto the land [THIS LAND] which the LORD has sworn unto their fathers to give them; and you shall cause them to inherit it.
8 And the LORD, he it is that does go before [paniym – His presence in] you; he will be with you, he will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed.
9 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant [these oracles] of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.
10 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,
11 When all Israel is come to appear before [paniym – in the presence of] the LORD your God in the place which he shall choose, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing.
12 Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and your stranger that is within your gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
13 And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as you live in the land whither you go over Jordan to possess it.
14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, your days approach that you must die: call Joshua [Jesus], and present yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went, and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation.
15 And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud [where understanding is held]: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door [at the entry] of the tabernacle.
16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, you shall sleep with your fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers [among them] of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.
17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face [My presence] from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will [ignorantly] say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?
18 And I will surely hide my face [paniym – My presence] in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods [the ways and ideas of the strangers mixed among us].
19 Now therefore write you this song [these words meant to be repeated as recieved] for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.
20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I swore unto their fathers, that flows with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat [in prosperity that comes from following My good ways and ideas]; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.
21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles [this tribulation they refuse to see, because of false prophets who have risen among them] are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I swore.
22 Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it the children of Israel.
23 And he gave Joshua [Jesus – Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh] the son of Nun [the son in perpetuity] a charge, and said, Be strong and of a good courage: for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land which I swore unto them: and I will be with you.
24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,
25 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant [the oracles] of the LORD, saying,
26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against you.
27 For I know your rebellion, and your stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, you have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?
28 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them.
29 For I know that after my death you will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.
30 And Moses spoke in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.

Matthew 7
1 Judge not [because your judgment is corrupted by false teaching], that you be not judged [by the same corrupt judgment].
2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why behold you the mote that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?
4 Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye?
5 You hypocrite, FIRST cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you SEE CLEARLY to cast out [with good judgment] the mote out of your brother’s eye.
6 Give not that which is holy [your judgment] unto the dogs [men whose mouths endlessly bark out ignorance in the darkness], neither cast you your pearls [the treasures by which we enter God’s kingdom] before swine [because e they will take them again into the mire they’ve stirred, to cloud what is clear], lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you [with their twisted and perverted judgment].
7 Ask, and it shall be given you [by God the Father]; seek [Him diligently], and you shall find; knock, and it [the cloud where His treasure are kept] shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asks receives; and he that [diligently] seeks finds [Me]; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish [the life hidden below the surface of this word], will he give him a serpent [the deadly bight of men unknowingly slithering among us in the dust]?
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter you in at the strait gate [narrowed by misleaders who must be avoided]: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns [misleaders], or figs of thistles [misleaders]?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit [that leads to life]; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit [that leads to death].
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you [you are strangers mixed among us, with strange ways and ideas that lead to death]: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth THESE sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which [digged deep {diorusso}, through the lies, and] built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Isaiah 65
1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am [unknowingly] found of them that sought me not [but sought instead the creations of their false teachers and false prophets]: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good [but instead they walk in an evil and strange way in which they’ve been misled], after their own thoughts;
3 A people that provoke me to anger continually to my face [paniym – My presence manifested]; that sacrifice in gardens [sanctuaries – places they’ve chosen for protection], and burn incense upon altars of brick [offer prayers to the creations of their own minds and works];
4 Which remain among the graves [remain among the dead], and lodge in the monuments [in the churches they’ve built to house the dead], which eat swine’s flesh [what is unclean], and broth of abominable things [the idols put in God’s place] is in their vessels;
5 Which say [unto Me], “Stand by yourself, come not near to me; for I am holier than you.” [This saying is an admission of their apostasy, apo stasis, standing, in rebellion, away from God.] These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burns all the day.
6 Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,
7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the LORD, which have burned incense upon the mountains [have prayed upon the high place that have risen out of the earth], and blasphemed [vilify and demonize] me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom [the evil fruit of their own desolation].
8 Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes [in making the faithful, the elect remnant that has come out of corruption, out of confusion into life, a new nation in the new heaven and earth I create], that I may not destroy them all.
9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains [My high place]: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.
10 And Sharon [those who understand what the LORD has made plain, removing to corrupt mountains that have blocked the light] shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor [those who’ve come out of confusion and its tribulation] a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have [after leaving the abominations put in My place, diligently] sought me.
11 But you [the “holier” than I Am, who remain among the dead in tribulation] are they that forsake [apo-stasis, stand away from] the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.
12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and you shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.
13 Therefore thus saith the LORD God, Behold, my servants shall eat [the bread of heaven], but you shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink [these waters of life], but you shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice [when they reach the expected end, in the Father’s presence], but you shall be ashamed [shall not reach the end you seek]:
14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation [sheber – the destruction] of [the evil] spirit [working in and through you, misleading into desolation and tribulation].
15 And you shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the LORD God shall slay you, and call his servants by another name:
16 That he who blesses himself in the [new] earth [wherein dwells righteousness] shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that swears in the [new] earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles [desolation and tribulation] are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.
17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create [new heavenly] Jerusalem [founded on My ways of peace] a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And I will rejoice in [new] Jerusalem [where my people plainly see and fully understand], and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping [the sorrow and misery, the fruit of evil misleaders] shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that has not filled his days: for the child [those born again into the new] shall die a hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old [those remaining among the dead] shall be accursed.
21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat [as is the way of the old and corrupt thieves]: for as the days of a tree [the upright] are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They [following the LORD’s way] shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of [Joseph: Ephraim and Shiloh their king] the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together [all will learn the ways of God’s, which produce true peace, security, and sustainable civilization], and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock [the leaders shall not consume the flock]: and dust [the ruin of the old earth] shall be the serpent’s [those whose words are venomous] meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

The “troop” mentioned in the title verse (Isaiah 65:11) is from the twice used form of the word gad (#1409), which only appears elsewhere in Genesis 30:11. In Genesis it’s Leah speaking of “a troop” that will come, as she names her (and Jacob’s) son, Gad. It (the word gad) is from the three times used Hebrew word guwd, meaning “to crowd upon, i.e. attack:–invade, overcome.”

When understood in concert, these words tell of the two distinct groups, the armies of darkness and light, led by evil or good, producing after their own kind, leading into ignorance or understanding.

Genesis 49
1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

8 Judah [the leaders God choses], you are he whom your brethren shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father’s children shall bow down before you.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet [speaking of the Davidic king line], until Shiloh come [the place the LORD first set His name – the name Shiloh meaning peace and tranquility – the coming one {Joseph’s seed – the one separated} from who it will again flow – see Ezekiel 21:27 and the overturning]; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

16 Dan [the judge – speaking of strength returned and the righteous judgment of the world begins] shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way [as a serpent raised as a standard on a pole {nec}], an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels [this is the heel bruised in the judgment, meaning the serpents among the people, are rendered without effect], so that his rider shall fall backward [so the body of Christ will return to the place from which she fell – see, in Isaiah 28:13, what causes them to fall backward].
18 (I have waited for your salvation, O LORD.)
19 Gad [the LORD’s army, overcome until their return to Him], a troop [gduwd] shall overcome [guwd] him: but he shall overcome [guwd] at the last.
20 Out of Asher [happy] his bread shall be fat [happiness returns when the word of God prospers], and he shall yield royal dainties [ma’adan – speaking of the royal line again raised up – referring us to its use in Proverbs 29:17, telling us this is when rest returns, when we, by correction, give the Father “delight”].
21 Naphtali [by this wrestling – unknowingly with the LORD] is a hind let loose: he gives goodly words [our tongue {the word of God} is loosed and we teach it as received directly from Him].
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well [a tree of life by these waters of God]; whose branches run over the wall [the wall of lies men have created and teach]:
23 The archers [ba’al – the gods of this world whose teaching has blinded all form seeing the Father, in the son, the seed of the women who brings forth the man child – see Revelation 12:17] have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings of the breasts, and of the womb [seed, the son]:
26 The blessings of your father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors [all those who have come before us, and were only blessed with part of what is perfected in our return to the LORD] unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

As we see above, guwd is used to describe the evil army that overcomes God’s People, His army, until this end time, when the LORD’s Salvation (in the flesh of Shiloh, the prince of peace now crowned) comes to those who’ve waited from Him.

Daniel 8
23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences [understanding the power of mass deception], shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power [but by the power of broadcasting, through a lying mass media]: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people [God’s people].
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft [mirmah – fraud, the HOAX] to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace [claiming they are saving us by destroying us, while we sit still, at peace as they war against us and we do nothing about it] shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut you up the vision; for it shall be for many days.
27 And I Daniel [the judgment of God] fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up [strength returned], and did the king’s business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.

The word above in verse 25 rendered “broken” is shabar (the origin of sheber: destruction and vexation). It is the word Daniel uses three other times in chapter 8, all telling of the horns of earthly empires broken off, meaning ending.

In context, the word in the same verse, rendered “without” hand, is ‘ephec, meaning “cessation, i.e. an end (especially of the earth); often used adverb, no further; also (like 6466) the ankle (in the dual), as being the extremity of the leg or foot.”

These words tell of ending the “hand” from where comes the power of evil misleading, which mimics the power of God. It is “understanding dark sentences,” meaning the power of words to lead, which is good and evil seen in the fruit the words produce. It is obvious, seen in the realistic assessment of the earth’s condition led by the powers of evil, misleading and broadcasting, they have led the earth and humanity into inevitable self-destruction. They will never change course because they are self-deluded: now unable to distinguish between reality and the insanity of the mass delusions they’ve created. As Paul says, they will continue until they are taken out of the way (mesos – out of our midst). These are the sons of perdition who will not remain among us in the new heaven and earth, because they are those who, without remorse, have and do destroy lives and livelihoods (sociopathically) without care for the mass misery and destruction they’ve caused. These are known liars telling known lies, the army of evil who are for these crimes against humanity cursed forever.

This takes us to the final time guwd appears, in Habakkuk 3:16, which speaks of when Habakkuk understood this end when God invades the earth with His “troop” against the evil “troop” who’ve seized it.

The following, with some contextual additions, is from the post of 2 September 2018:

You went forth for the salvation of your people, even for salvation with your anointed; you wounded the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah.

The above, Habakkuk 3:13, is preceded by telling of the LORD marching through the land in indignation, and threshing the heathen in His anger.

Habakkuk 3
1 A prayer of Habakkuk [taken by [God’s] hand] the prophet upon Shigionoth [those who have strayed into error].
2 O LORD, I have heard your speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive [quicken – bring to life] your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known [give us understanding – knowledge]; in wrath remember mercy [and it is so, My wrath is understanding, and those who forsake it reject mercy].
3 God came from Teman [the right hand (power) from looking toward the sun rise (for light)], and the Holy One from mount Paran [the cloud, from where understanding is given by the light seen in it – see Numbers 10:11 thru 14 & Job 37:21 & 38:34 thru 38]. Selah [think about it]. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.
4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns [rays of light] coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.
5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet.
6 He stood, and measured [assessed the condition of] the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow [all the place that have raised themselves up from the earth]: his ways are everlasting.
7 I saw the tents of Cushan [the houses of darkness] in affliction: and the curtains [separation] of the land of Midian [strife] did tremble [agitation as the product].
8 Was the LORD displeased against the rivers [the means by which the waters of death flowed]? was your anger against the rivers? was your wrath against the sea [the people who became agitated by what flowed into them], that you did ride upon your horses [God’s people become His goodly horse in the battle – see Zechariah 10:3 for who the anger is against] and your chariots of salvation [the product of the LORD’s power raised in His people]?
9 Your bow was made quite naked [see Isaiah 52:10], according to the oaths of the tribes [see Genesis 49:8 thru 12, & 22 thru 26], even your word. Selah. You did cleave the earth with rivers [this rightly divided pure word of God, flowing directly from Him].
10 The mountains [the high places of men – see Ephesians 6:12] saw you, and they trembled: the [these] overflowing of the water passed by: the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands [the light coming from His hand, where is His power] on high.
11 The sun and moon [church and civil government] stood still in their habitation: at the light of your arrows they went, and at the shining of your glittering spear [this word coming from the hand of God].
12 You did march through the land in indignation, you did thresh the heathen in anger.
13 You went forth for the salvation of your people, even for salvation with your anointed [I Am]; you wounded the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah [think about it].
14 You did strike through with his staves the head of his villages: they came out as a whirlwind to scatter me: their rejoicing was as to devour the poor secretly.
15 You did walk through the sea with your horses, through the heap of great waters.
16 When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he [the invaders] comes up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops [guwd – the enemy that has come, because of who there is no life or fruit, and why the herd is scattered {against who the LORD rises and send His army}].
17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat [no furit in establishments of church and state]; the flock shall be cut off from the fold [defeated and scattered the ONE BODY, by the evil troop], and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
19 The LORD God is my strength [He will, by the popwer of his hand, return my strength], and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet [and I will become steadfast agaist the ivaders], and he will make me [His raised troop] to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer [repeater of the words God has given me] on my stringed instruments.

The words rendered “stringed instrument” is the Hebrew word ngiynah, as fourteen times used word meaning a taunting song when used to tell of man’s actions, and of the LORD’s smiting the enemies of His people. It is used nine times in the Psalms, mostly as an epilogue as it is in Habakkuk. It is telling of the LORD striking the enemies as if strings of an instrument, and the strikes together form the song, a tune we recognize (as His way).

Psalms 3
1 LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3 But you, O LORD, are a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for you have smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; you have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongs unto the LORD: your blessing is upon your people. Selah.

To the chief musician, on ngiynah, (a tune we know as His voice, when He has struck down the enemies as if a stringed instrument.)

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

In the verse (34) before the above, Matthew 24:35, the LORD speaks of this generation, who shall not “pass away” until all these things are “fulfilled” (ginomai – {“gen”-erate}: meaning regenerated in the new heaven and earth: the kingdom of God on earth, in His new {refreshed} generation).

The word “pass away” is from the Greek word parerchomai, which is the word para prefixed to erchomai (see the post of 10 July 2021). It (parerchomai – to perish by neglect) is said to mean “to come near or aside, i.e. to approach (arrive), go by (or away), (figuratively) perish or neglect, (causative) avert.”

For background, here following, ending with Psalms 79, is the beginning portion of the 10 July 2021 post.

Truly I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

In the LORD’s proclamation, above in Luke 18:17, He uses wording engineered to illuminate, precisely define, the ideas contained therein. The word “receive” is the Greek word dechomai, the “little child” is paidion, and “enter” is eiserchomai.

We begin with the suffixes (chomai) of the two words leading us to what is received and thereby allowing the entry, by the little child, into the kingdom of God.

Concerning these words and ideas, we look again at portions of the post from 21 May 2021 (below ending with 1 Thessalonians 2):

In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul describes the coming of the LORD against the lying deceptions: the work of Satan through those resisting and opposing His truth. The word there in verse 9, rendered “coming,” is parousia, which describes the presence of the LORD realized.

Paul used the same word (parousia) in 1 Thessalonians 2:19, after speaking of those who’ve received his words as the word of God, not man. It comes after saying it is God calling them into His kingdom. He next speaks of those resisting the word of God, keeping them from speaking it to those who don’t know Him (haven’t realized His presence in this way).

He says, in verse 18, he would have “come” to them again, but Satan (who opposes and resists the work of the Holy Spirit – The LORD not yet known) hindered him. The word, in this verse, rendered “come,” is erchomai, which is said to mean come or go. When we, by the LORD’s leading, examine this word as we must, we find at its deepest essence, its the method of His coming, as Paul is describing.

The word is divinely engineered from the words ereo, meaning to utter or speak, and chraomai, a word derived from chasma, by way of the words cheir, and cheimon.

The meanings of these last two words are:

Strong’s #5495: cheir (pronounced khire) perhaps from the base of 5494 in the sense of its congener the base of 5490 [chasma] (through the idea of hollowness for grasping); the hand (literally or figuratively (power); especially (by Hebraism) a means or instrument):–hand.

Strong’s #5494: cheimon (pronounced khi-mone’) from a derivative of cheo (to pour; akin to the base of 5490 [chasma] through the idea of a channel), meaning a storm (as pouring rain); by implication, the rainy season, i.e. winter:–tempest, foul weather, winter.

As we know, the word chasma is the once used word the LORD uses, in Luke 16:26 to describe the great “gulf” between us (who’ve answered the LORD’s calling and entered into His presence and kingdom), and those in hell (who’ve refused the love of His truth). As often discussed, the LORD uses the word ketos, also a once used word, a derivation of chasma, in Matthew 12:40, rendered “whales” belly. It gives us the understanding that the whale is so-called because of its gaping mouth, wide open and devouring, which speaks of the mouths of men (the gates of hell), lying and opposing God, which is how the LORD says He will, as Jonah, be in the belly of the earth (unseen in the sea, unknown in the world).

The other words tell us these are the storms, the foul weather (cheimon) into which the hand (cheir – power) of God is manifested, by His word (ereo) understood as His good pulling (harpazo) us from the firers of hell. This utterance (ereo) is what Paul, in 1 Thessalonians 4:16, calls the voice of the archangel, and the trumpet of God, to which we hearken and assemble (harpazo – pulled) to Him, in His kingdom: heaven in His presence, here and now, in the world as He is in the world. Have you answered His call, received His word, this word as the word of God, and entered His kingdom? If you have, “are not even you in the presence of the LORD Jesus Christ at His coming?”

Strong’s #5530: chraomai (pronounced khrah’-om-ahee) middle voice of a primary verb (perhaps rather from 5495, to handle); to furnish what is needed; (give an oracle, “graze” (touch slightly), light upon, etc.), i.e. (by implication) to employ or (by extension) to act towards one in a given manner:–entreat, use.

1 John 3
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

1 John 4
17 Herein is our love made perfect [complete], that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

1 Thessalonians 2
11 As you know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father does his children,
In today’s title verse, the LORD continues, speaking of the day only He knows, which is only seen by those watching for Him, by keeping His word (guarding it against the corruptors). These (that watching) are those He says will remain (excel – yathar).ar)..
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 also in you that believe.
14 For you, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for you also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:
15 Who both killed the LORD Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:
16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.
17 But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavored the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.
18 Wherefore we would have come [erchomai – uttering God’s power that works in you] unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan [the resister of God] hindered us.
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 [parousia – at His presence]?
20 For you are our glory and joy.

The word “received,” in verse 13 above, is dechomai, meaning receive, apparently from its (unstated) origins in the Greek words deo, meaning “to bind,” and chraomai, referring to ideas upon which we act. It speaks of whose mark (in the head and hand) you accept, whose ideas are in your mind and become the foundation of your words and works.

It (dechomai) is the word rendered “received” in 2 Thessalonians 2:10, which tells of those who are damned because they “receive” not the love of the truth. The passage speaks of the LORD’s coming to reveal the wickedness that was already at work, which Paul says earlier will not come until there comes a “falling away” first.

The words “falling away” are from the Greek word apostasia, meaning “defection from truth (properly, the state) (“apostasy”).” The verse saying this, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, defines the wicked, who verse 9 says are doing the work of Satan, as the “son of perdition [apoleia].” This is a direct reference to Reuben and what is said of him, in Genesis 49, where he’s told he will not “excel,” and why.

Genesis 49
1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.
2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, you sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.
3 Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
4 Unstable [pachaz – ebullition] as water [this tells of the advice of the serpent, as one of God’s children, with unbridled license, recklessly reinterpreting His word], you shall not excel; because you went up to your father’s bed [went into the women – God’s people who have His words]; then defiled you it: he went up to my couch [took God’s place].

The Hebrew word rendered “excel” is yathar, meaning “to jut over or exceed; by implication, to excel; (intransitively) to remain or be left; causatively, to leave, cause to abound, preserve.” It (yathar) is a direct contrast to the description of Joseph later in the chapter: as a bough that does jut over the wall (of the lies of Reuben in the pattern of Satan, already at work), and who does prevail.

Genesis 49
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well [a tree of life by these waters of God]; whose branches run over the wall [the wall of lies men have created and teach]:
23 The archers [ba’al – the gods of this world whose teaching has blinded all from seeing the Father, in the son, the seed of the women who brings forth the man child – see Revelation 12:5] have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help [‘azar] you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless [barak] you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings of the breasts [of the Ancient of Day – see Isaiah 28:9], and of the womb [seed, the son]:
26 The blessings of your father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors [harah – all those who have come before us, and were only blessed with part of what is perfected in our return to the LORD] unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head [see Zechariah 9:16] of him that was separate from his brethren.

It (yathar) is used, Divinely Engineer, to give us this precise meaning in telling of those “left” after the LORD’s judgment. Rueben isn’t there because he is an archetype of those who perish (apoleia), who we know Peter defines in 2 Peter 2 & 3.

Psalms 79
9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for your name’s sake.
10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of your servants which is shed.
11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before you; according to the greatness of your power preserve [yathar] you those that are appointed to die;
12 And render unto our neighbors [the enemies mixed among us] sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached you, O LORD.
13 So we your people and sheep of your pasture will give you thanks forever: we will show forth your praise to all generations.

In today’s title verse the LORD continues, speaking of the day only He knows, which is only seen by those watching for Him, by keeping His word (guarding it from the corruptors). These (those watching) are those He says will remain (excel – yathar).

Matthew 24
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Truly I say unto you, This generation shall not pass [parerchomai – shall not avert hearing this word of God, which if received is life], till all these things be fulfilled [ginomai – come into being: the unseen will be seen by those watching]. [Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.]
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away [parerchomai – the old understanding and the corrupt world shall be separated from this true word of God, as the waters above were separated from the waters below, in the firmament, by this exposition of light.], but my words [which are the waters bringing rest and refreshing in the new heaven upon the new earth] shall not pass away [parerchomai].
36 But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood [the waters reserved in heaven, for this day, when the Father is known by His knowing the day and His people’s need for His life-giving advice and good leading] they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark [where His testament is carrying those saved above the waters that cover and are destroying the old world],
39 And knew not [because they rejected His word, and refused to hear His warning and receive His salvation] until the flood came [erchomai – the word that must be received, for it is life and salvation], and took them all away [and they shall not remain {yathar}]; so shall also the coming of [parousia – the LORD’s presence manifested in] the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken [away], and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken [away], and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your LORD does come [erchomai – as is His manner, through His messenger speaking Salvation, and the only vexation is to receive the report].
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief [the LORD unknown to those not watching] would come [erchomai], he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up [diorusso – digged through: see the previous post].
44 Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes [erchomai – manifested in this word of God received].
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his LORD HAS made ruler over his household, to give them meat [this word of God, which I have given you in this time only the Father knows] in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his LORD when he comes [erchomai] shall find so doing.
47 Truly I say unto you, That he shall make him [Has made me] ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My LORD delays his coming [erchomai – not seeing Him because he refused to receive this word as the true word of God, as it is, and instead continued in His old and corrupt ways and ideas];
49 And shall begin to smite his fellow-servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken [out of his mind, deluded because of the corruption he is consuming];
50 The LORD of that servant shall come [heko – arrive as He has] in a day when he looks not [watches not] for him, and in an hour that he is not aware [is ignorant] of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The hour only the Father knows, of which, by uttering an entrance, He makes aware His people who are “watching” for Him according to His word (guarded and kept from corruption). What is spoken, as we’ve often seen, is described in Isaiah as the “report,” from the Hebrew word shmuw’ah, which is also rendered “doctrine” and “rumor.”

As we well know, Isaiah 28 is the most precise explanation of this work of the LORD and of those who are opposing Him and defending corruption. There it (shmuw’ah) appears twice; the first asking who He shall teach “doctrine,” and the other saying the only vexation is to understand its “report.” It tells of these (doctrine and report) coming to the drunkards of His people in this generation, who He also describes as the crown of pride: misleader He says led His people into a covenant with death and agreement with hell.

He openly tells these scornful men who rule His people, this is the rest and the refreshing, yet they would not hear, because the words are unto them as the stammering words of another language. This foreign language is the truth, unheard because every table is full of vomit (words eaten, digested, and projected {broadcast} in a mixed up and distorted form), and there is no place clean (uncorrupted).

Isaiah 28
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, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [pinnah] stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste.
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 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.
20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim [as these water breaking forth upon the enemies who are made His footstool], he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon [as these water frozen in heaven are released, as hail to destroy this crop of misleaders in this evil generation], that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
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, even determined upon the whole earth.
23 Give you ear, and hear my voice [for it is sound doctrine]; hearken, and hear my speech [this report in which the LORD’s arm, His strengthening work, is revealed].

When Isaiah describes hearing of the “consumption,” which is “decreed” by the LORD upon the whole earth, it is the “strange” work that brings to pass the act, which he speaks of in the verse before. As we know is His manner, by these words leading us (in His good way) to a deeper understanding of their context when put here together.

The word describing His “strange” work, is the Hebrew word zuwr, which refers us to Isaiah 1, where we see it reversing the apostasy come from following strangers misleading into foreign ways and ideas. The other three words, nokriy, the resulting “strange” act; kalah (#3617), the “consumption;” and charats, the decree (from His voice and speech), refer us to the passages in which each appears once elsewhere in Isaiah.

Hear the word of the LORD: “Cast you up, cast you up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling-block out of the way of my people. For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. For I will not contend forever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.”

Isaiah 1
24 Therefore saith the LORD, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:
25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and purely purge away your dross, and take away all your tin:
26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed [kalah #3615].
29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks [those they say are the upright] which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the gardens [the place of protection] that you have chosen.

Isaiah 1
2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD has spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.
3 The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel does not know, my people does not consider.
4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away [zuwr – have become strangers, not knowing Me, My words, or My ways] backward [into apostasy].
5 Why should you be stricken any more? you will revolt more and more: the whole head is [all your leaders are] sick, and the whole heart faint [the whole mind is weak].
6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises [chabbuwrah – only appearing in Isaiah one other time, in Isaiah 53:5 rendered “stripes”], and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.
7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city [without trustworthy protection from its storms and sun].
9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom [burning], and we should have been like unto Gomorrah [ruin].
10 Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.
11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me [your strange ways and ideas, and reject My good leading]?

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil [misleading] of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land:
20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.
21 How is the faithful city become a harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

Isaiah 2
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5 O house of Jacob, come you, and let us walk in the light [understanding] of the LORD.
6 Therefore you have forsaken your people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines [invaders among us], and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
9 And the mean man bows down [to their idols], and the great man humbles himself [to the works of their own hands]: therefore forgive them not.
10 Enter into the rock, and hide you in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
18 And the idols he shall utterly abolish.

Romans 9
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 unto glory,
24 Even us, whom he has called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
25 As he saith also in Hosea [2:23], 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 also cried concerning Israel [Isaiah 10:22 & 23], Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:
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 [in Isaiah 1:9], Except the LORD of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodom, and been made like unto Gomorrah.

Hosea 2
4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms [My people who have left me to follow the gods of this world and have become strangers].
5 For their mother has played the harlot: she that conceived them has done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.
6 Therefore, behold, I will hedge up your way with thorns [misleader who’ve grown in the garden neglected by their shepherds], and make a wall [of lies upon lies], that she shall not find her paths [My good ways].
7 And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.
8 For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal [the idols, gods, of this world, the men who put themselves in My place].
9 Therefore will I return, and take away my corn in the time thereof, and my wine in the season thereof, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness.
10 And now will [have] I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand.
11 I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.
12 And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, whereof she has said, These are my rewards that my lovers have given me: and I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
13 And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim [their idols they put in my place], 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 [became strangers to Me], saith the LORD.
14 Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness [as in Revelation 12:6, where the LORD feeds her], and speak comfortably unto her [leading her again into all truth – full understanding].
15 And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor [her troubles – tribulation] for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.
16 And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that you shall call me Ishi [a man of God]; and shall call me no more Baali [no more as one of the false gods you call by My name].
17 For I will take away the names of Baalim [your idols] 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 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.
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, saith the LORD, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth;
22 And the earth shall hear [when I feed you in the wilderness] the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel [when God again sows his good seed in the earth].
23 And I will sow 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; and they shall say, You are my God.

Isaiah 28
23 Give you ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.
24 Does the plowman plow all day to sow [as God the Father has done]? does he open and break the clods of his ground?
25 When he has made plain the face [paniym – when he has by this, His way, made His presence plain] thereof, does he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat and the appointed barley and the rie in their place [sowing them in the earth, as He does]?
26 For his God does instruct him to discretion, and does teach [him sound doctrine].
27 For the fitches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.
28 Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.
29 This also comes forth from the LORD of hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.

Isaiah 10
12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the LORD has performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria [the communists’ Pope and President, and their minions], and the glory of his high looks.
13 For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:
14 And my hand has found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathers eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.
15 Shall the axe boast itself against him that hews therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shakes it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood.
16 Therefore shall the LORD, the LORD of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.
17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;
18 And shall consume [kalah – #3615] the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standard-bearer faints.
19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.
20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
21 The 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 [kalah – # 3617] decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
23 For the LORD God of hosts shall make a consumption [kalah – # 3617], even determined [charats] in the midst of all the land.
24 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, O my people that dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite you with a rod, 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 [kalah – #3615], and mine anger in their destruction.
26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian [of those agitating the world by their deceptions and HOAXs] at the rock of Oreb [who’ve covered the world in ignorance and the shadow of death]: and as his rod was upon the sea [all humanity], so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt [calling the waters of the sea to cover them, as God called His people to the slaughter of the agitators].
27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because [paniym – by presence of the LORD realized] of the anointing [at “the appearing of our LORD Jesus Christ: 15 Which in his times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and LORD of LORDs; 16 Who only has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.].

Daniel 9
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 [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 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 an 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 to the work of your hands.

Hosea 2
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the LORD, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth;
22 And the earth shall hear [when I feed you in the wilderness] the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel [when God again sows his good seed in the earth].
23 And I will sow 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; and they shall say, You are my God.

When the LORD says no man knows the day, only the Father, and if no man knows it now when it’s come, was not He telling the truth? Even those watching will only see after He has come and shown them the light shining upon all, quickening to life those who receive Him.

Acts 26
22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
23 That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should show light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.

1 Corinthians 15
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
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 first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
24 Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he has put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he has put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

John 10
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also does the Son likewise.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and shows him all things that himself does [He work in this day that only he knows]: and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
21 For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; even so the Son quickens whom he will.
22 For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son:
23 That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him.
24 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25 Truly, truly, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.

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.
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.

If the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

If the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

The above, from Matthew 24:43, is the LORD telling of His coming; the verse before saying, “Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your LORD does come.”

The logic in these verses is self-explanatory. The thief is only known to have come after the house is “broken up.” Using the Greek word diorusso, only used three other times, the LORD tells us precisely what He is referencing. Its meaning is to dig through, alluding to Ezekiel 12 where the LORD tells the son of man (Ezekiel – who God strengthens) to dig through the wall (of lies upon lies – the house built upon confusion, without form, with stones of emptiness, and void) in the sight of His people. When he does, the people don’t know what it means until he’s carried everything out.

The verse before these (in Matthew 24) tell of those who are taken and those who are left, after the house is broken up (digged through)

Ezekiel 12
16 But I will leave a few men of them from the sword [this word of God against those who resist and oppose it], from the famine [the weakening that comes without eating this word of God – His flesh and blood], and from the pestilence [the dis-ease that comes from following advice (ways and ideas) other than God’s good leading – now manifested in the end delusion of the COVID HOAX]; that they may declare all their abominations [the ideas and ways with which they replaced God] among the heathen [those who remain, telling those who don’t know God, or have forgotten Him, who He is and of His work now in action in the world to save them] whither they come; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Friends, in the name of the LORD, I tell you, this IS marvelously now fulfilled before the eyes of God’s people, and they refuse to see it, even after it’s explained in detail.

Matthew 23
36 Truly I say unto you, All these things shall [have] come upon this generation.
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stones them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!
38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
39 For I say unto you, You shall not see me henceforth, till you shall say, “Blessed is he that comes in the name of the LORD.”

Ezekiel 12
1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.
3 Therefore, you son of man, prepare you stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and you shall remove from your place to another place in their sight [from one nation, old and corrupt, to a new heaven and earth, a nation wherein dwells righteousness]: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious house.
4 Then shall you bring forth your stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and you shall go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity.
5 Dig you through the wall [of lies] in their sight, and carry out thereby.
6 In their sight shall you bear it upon your shoulders, and carry it forth in the twilight [when the church’s understanding departing from the earth]: you shall cover your face [My presence in you {in me as a thief} shall not be known], that you see not the ground [they shall not understand the place is Babylon, and they are Israel therein]: for I have set you for a sign unto the house of Israel.
7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand [this work of penetrating the lies that separate God’s people from Him]; I brought it forth in the twilight [as the understanding departed the earth], and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight.
8 And in the morning came [the light came, understanding into the darkness] the word of the LORD unto me, saying,
9 Son of man, has not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto you, What do you?
10 Say you unto them, Thus saith the LORD God; This burden concerning the prince [who is the coming king, the ONE BODY of Christ] in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them.
11 Say, I am your sign [Isaiah 8:18, I and the children the LORD has given are for signs and wonders in Israel]: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them [and their house shall be left unto them desolate, until they say, “Blessed is he that comes in the name of the LORD”]: they shall remove [be taken away with their lies and misleading] and go into captivity.
12 And the prince [I AM] that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face [the coming king shall hide his presence as thief digging through a wall of lies], that he see not the ground with his eyes [not seeing as the old world sees, the ONE BODY not understanding we are Israel].
13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon [the confusion, mass delusion, that now rules the world] to the land of the Chaldeans [among those who rule by deception, their words meant to manipulate, control, and destroy all who follow them]; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die [has been led into death] there.
14 And I will scatter toward every wind [of false doctrines – bad ideas and worthless prescriptions {just one more jab – known liars telling the same known lie, justifying it by the previous lie proven as a lie, and the ignorant, the cowards, and insane keep following}] all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword [this good advice, truth, they refuse, again choosing ignorance, fear, and insanity] after them.
15 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.
16 But I will leave a few men [My elect remnant who are MEN {as Jasher} in right minds, not fearful, and understanding the truth] of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among the heathen whither they come; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
18 Son of man, [let the LORD of hosts be your fear], eat your bread with quaking, and drink your water with trembling and with carefulness;
19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith the LORD God of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment [because this good word of God is to them a foreign language, because they are accustomed to lies], that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.
20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall [as a broke up house] be desolate; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
21 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
22 Son of man, what is that proverb that you have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision fails?
23 Tell them therefore, Thus saith the LORD God; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.
24 For there shall be no more any vain [worthless] vision nor flattering [feel good lies] divination within the house of Israel.
25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the LORD God.
26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying.
27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesies of the times that are far off.
28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the LORD God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the LORD God.

Friends, this is the reality, no matter who does or doesn’t believe it. These men, wicked misleaders, are misleading the world into self-destruction to remake it in their evil image. They will not stop, nor will they ever repent. They must be exposed and destroyed by the light. Will you open your mouth and stop them? The world needs to know the LORD is here, as promised, in the light: understanding that saves the world.

Ezekiel 3
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, 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 at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto you receive 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 unto them, and tell them, Thus saith 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, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

Zechariah 7 [those who “remember”{zikrown} Jehovah]
4 Then came the word of the LORD of hosts unto me, saying,
5 Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did you at all fast unto me, even to me?
6 And when you did eat, and when you did drink, did not you eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?
7 Should you not hear the words which the LORD has cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when men inhabited the south and the plain?
8 And the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah, saying,
9 Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and show mercy and compassions every man to his brother:
10 And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.
11 But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.
12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts has sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.
13 Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:
14 But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.

Zechariah 6
8 Then cried he upon me, and spoke unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
9 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai [worldly], of Tobijah [to whom Jehovah is good {not a misleader}], and of Jedaiah [who Jehovah has known], which are come from Babylon [out of confusion], and come you the same day, and go into the house of Josiah [who Jehovah heals] the son of Zephaniah [by Jehovah’s hidden treasures {this word}];
11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua [Jehovah’s Salvation personified] the son of Josedech [who is Jehovah’s righteousness], the high priest;
12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule [mashal] upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both [the one who is both king and priest].
14 And the crowns shall be to Helem [strength], and to Tobijah [to whom Jehovah is good {not a misleader}], and to Jedaiah [who Jehovah has known], and to Hen [favor and grace] the son of Zephaniah [by Jehovah’s hidden treasures {this word that was carried away into Shinar}], for a memorial [zikrown, meaning “a memento (or memorable thing, day or writing)” – the things of the storehouse remembered and “restored”] in the temple of the LORD.
15 And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if you will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.

The word zikrown refers us to what is written in Malachi 3:16, where it is rendered “remembrance.”

Malachi 3
8 Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse [these treasure into the churches called by My name, unto those sleeping in ignorance caused by my spirit there quieted, after the treasure, these words were carried away into Shinar, the place of the sleep], that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, says the LORD of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for you shall be a delightsome land, says the LORD of hosts.
13 Your words have been stout against me, says the LORD. Yet you say, What have we spoken so much against you?
14 You have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work [‘asah] wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
16 Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance [zikrown – reminding of the things forgotten] was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up [‘asah – do My work upon] my jewels [My people who are My crown – as opposed to the piercing, the crown of thorns placed there by the misleaders – Zechariah 9:16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign {a sign in heaven, upon the one they pierced} upon his land.]; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him.
18 Then shall you return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves him not.

Luke 6
43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
46 And why call you me, LORD, LORD, and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever comes to me, and heareth my sayings, and does them, I will show you to whom he is like:
48 He is like a man which built a house, and digged deep, and laid [tithemi] the foundation [themelios] on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded [themellioo] upon a rock.
49 But he that heareth, and does not, is like a man that without a foundation built a house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

The other times the word diorusso appears are once in Luke giving the same warning, and twice, in Matthew 6:19 & 20, telling of the foundation spoken of above. The latter describes the treasures which can (earthly) and (heavenly – full understanding) cannot be taken by the thief.

Matthew 6
17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face;
18 That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father which is in secret: and your Father, which sees in secret, shall reward you openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust do corrupt, and where thieves break through [diorusso] and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust does corrupt, and where thieves do not break through [diorusso] nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light [understanding] of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single [sees as ONE BODY, as God sees], your whole [ONE] body shall be full of light [understanding].
23 But if your eye be evil [and misleads the flock], your whole body shall be full of darkness [of ignorance]. If therefore the light [understanding] that is in you be darkness [ignorance], how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters [teachers – controlling ideas]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God [truth, heavenly treasures that come through Him only] and mammon [lust for earthly treasures].
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them [as the woman in the wilderness, see Revelation 12:6]. Are you not much better than they [and so, Your Father now feeds you as promised, with these heavenly treasures]?

The word “treasures” above is from the Greek word thesauros, meaning “a deposit, i.e. wealth (literally or figuratively):–treasure.” It’s derived from the word tithemi, which means to place.

The two Greek words are used to tell of the LORD’s presence, revealed in His work revealing His treasures in the son declared by the Father (NOW) at His time, which Only He knows.

2 Corinthians 4
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light [the understanding] of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure [thesauros] in earthen vessels [our flesh bodies], that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the LORD Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our [flesh] body.
11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; [so awaken from your sleep and likewise open your mouth and speak!]
14 Knowing that he which raised up the LORD Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us [we who are alive and remain] with [in ONE BODY] you [who are sleeping in Christ].

Ephesians 5
8 For you were sometimes darkness [sleeping in ignorance], 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 [of ignorance], but rather reprove them.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret [the lies that hide the truth].
13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light [this understanding]: for whatsoever does make manifest is light [is understanding].
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 [in perfect understanding], not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

The word “redeeming” is the Greek word exagorazo, said to mean “to buy up.” It is actually compounded from three words, ex, meaning origin, as in from; agora, meaning to gather, as in to buy in the marketplace [of ideas]; and zoe, life. It above speaks of buying this generation (time), paying the price to purchase it from the place where it is bought and sold, by these treasures we have in earthen vessels (our flesh where God has deposited them).

2 Peter 2
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.

Colossians 2
1 For I would that you knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together 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 [thesauros] of wisdom and knowledge.
4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile 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 stablished 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 – elements, the corrupt ideas of men, which they call treasure] of the world, and not after Christ.
9 For in him dwelleth 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 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 name Colossians, Kolossaeus in Greek, is from the word kollao, meaning “from kolla (“glue”); to glue, i.e. (passively or reflexively) to stick (figuratively):–cleave, join (self), keep company.”

The word kollao is meant to refer us to its use in the once used Greek word kollourion, which is rendered “eyesalve” in Revelation 3:18. There it is the LORD speaking to the Laodicean church (spoken of in verse 1 above) telling it to anoint their eyes with eyesalve, to join their eyes with His, to see as He sees.

Revelation 18
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you wert cold or hot.
16 So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of my mouth.
17 Because you sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not [because you are sleeping in ignorance] that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you mayest be rich [with heavenly treasures of understanding and life]; and white raiment, that you mayest be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eyesalve [kollourion], that you mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent [the cry of Jonah].
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me [joined in ONE BODY].
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.
22 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Paul used the word kallao twice in 1 Corinthians 6, first in telling of the one body of those who’ve “joined” with the harlot (the mystery of confusion, Babylon). They are the eighth church (See Revelation 17:10 & 11), one with all the world in confusion, which comes by joining with men (spiritual fornication and adultery) who put themselves and their ideas in God’s place.

The word is then used saying, those who’ve “joined” the LORD (after hearing and then seeing His work – by re-cognizing His Spirit leading and reminding us of all truth) are ONE BODY (“One Spirit”).

1 Corinthians 6
1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust [this world in confusion by reversing evil and good], and not before the saints [those with the LORD in His ONE BODY]?
2 Do you not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3 Know you not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
4 If then you have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church [in the now fallen church, because he is the greatest in the LORD’s eyes].
5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
6 But brother goes to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers [who don’t believe God is in you, because He is not in them.
7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because you go to law one with another. Why do you not rather take wrong? why do you not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded [see that you defraud others with your false doctrines]?
8 Nay, you do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.
9 Know you not that the unrighteous [those whose ideas and ways have left the LORD to follow and join with men who put themselves in His place] shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators [those joining with these men], nor idolaters, nor adulterers [who have left God for these men], nor effeminate [and have become as women], nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous [who call such doctrine “social justice”], nor drunkards [whose mind are altered into lunacy by consuming these intoxicant doctrines], nor revilers [feasting with us spewing out their shame], nor extortioners [who put you under tribute, taxes and tithes, claiming this robbery is “fairness”], shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but you are washed [by this word of God], but you are sanctified [you are separated from such men and ideas, and joined with the LORD], but you are justified in the name of the LORD Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God [the LORD when he was unknown, leading you into the truth, and into His kingdom, which is His ONE BODY].
12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any [and thereby separated from the LORD].
13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats [Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as you have us for an ensample. 18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our conversation is in heaven {the place of full understanding}; from whence also we look for the Savior, the LORD Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious {ONE} body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.]: but God shall destroy both it [their worldly ways, belly and meat] and them. Now the body is not for fornication [not for joining with men and their ideas], but for [joining with] the LORD; and the LORD for the body.
14 And God has both raised up the LORD, and will also raise up us by his own power.
15 Know you not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of a harlot [the corrupt eighth church who has sold herself to gain the souls of men]? God forbid.
16 What? know you not that he which is joined [kollao] to a harlot [mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots] is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined [kallao] unto the LORD is one spirit [Christ in us, His ONE BODY].
18 Flee fornication [flee joining with men who are not joined with the LORD by His Spirit]. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that commits fornication sin against his own body [because he condemns himself by joining instead with men who’ve put themselves in God’s place].
19 What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [the LORD unknown in us – until He manifests His presence, making Himself known, at His will, in a day only He knows and chooses, by His word and works] 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 – redeemed by His work and word in Tim]: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. [Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as you have us for an ensample. 18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our conversation is in heaven {the place of full understanding}; from whence also we look for the Savior, the LORD Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious {ONE} body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.]

1 Corinthians 3
7 So then neither is he that plants any thing, neither he that waters; but God that gives the increase.
8 Now he that plants and he that waters are one [BODY]: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor.
9 For we are laborers together [joined] with God: you are God’s husbandry, you are God’s building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master-builder, I have laid [tithemi] the foundation, and another builds thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ [the LORD in us working and speaking His Salvation].
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day [of the LORD, when His light has come] shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire [which shall melt away the corrupt words and work of men]; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is [God’s or man’s].
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 dwells in you?
17 If any man defiles the temple of God [the minds of men], 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 seems 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 [in Job 5:13], He takes the wise in their own craftiness.
20 And again [Psalms 94:11], The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
21 Therefore let no man glory in men.

Jeremiah 9
20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O you women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbor lamentation.
21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.
22 Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcasses of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none shall gather them.
23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD which exercises lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

The word tithemi (theo) is the word used to tell us the LORD “laid down” His life, as we should “lay down” ours, to “lay” the foundation stone, Christ in us doing the work, to create the new heaven and earth, wherein dwells righteousness. It’s used to tell us of His coming, appearing at His will, once the Father has “made” his enemies his footstool.

1 Corinthians 15
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
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 first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
24 Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he has put [tithemi] all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he has put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all [His Glory manifested in His ONE BODY].

Hebrews 1
8 But unto the Son he says, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
10 And, You, LORD, in the beginning have laid [themelioo – a derivative of tithemi] foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands:
11 They shall perish; but you remain; 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 [tithemi] your enemies your footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Hebrews 10
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 for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made [tithemi] his footstool.
14 For by one offering he has perfected forever them that are sanctified.
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, saith 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 by the blood of Jesus,
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 an high priest 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 [of the LORD, when His light has come] 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 [melting away the corruption], which shall devour the adversaries [making them His footstool].

1 Peter 2
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking,
2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby:
3 If so be you have tasted that the LORD is gracious.
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
5 You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay [tithemi] in Zion a chief corner [gonia – pinnah] stone [to bring us into the new heaven and earth, His kingdom and new nation therein], elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded [the end shall be reached for those who believe the LORD is in him {me} bringing it to reality].
7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous [eye opening] light;
10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly [worldly] lusts, which war against the soul;
12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

Therefore, Job 5
8 I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:
9 Which does great things and unsearchable; marvelous [eye opening] things without number:
10 Who gives rain [this word from heaven] upon the earth, and sends waters upon the fields [to bring life from the earth]:
11 To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.
12 He disappoints the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
13 He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward [those who twist and pervert truth] is carried headlong.
14 They meet with darkness [ignorance] in the day time [because they reject the light when it has come], and grope in the noonday as in the night.
15 But he saves the poor from the sword, from their [deceitful] mouth, and from the hand [the evil works] of the mighty.
16 So the poor has hope, and iniquity stops her mouth.
17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correct: therefore despise not you the chastening of the Almighty:
18 For he makes sore, and binds up: he wounds, and his hands make whole.

Psalms 94
1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongs; O God, to whom vengeance belongs, show yourself.
2 Lift up yourself, you judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things [‘athaq – “which speak ‘grievous things’ proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.” Psalms 31:18]? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5 They break in pieces [daka’] your people [destroying the ONE BODY – the “bruising” {daka’} of Isaiah 53:5 & 10], O LORD, and afflict your heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless [unborn].
7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8 Understand, you brutish among the people: and you fools, when will you be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10 He that chastises the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teaches man knowledge, shall not he know? [“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart {the foundational mind} of the contrite ones {daka’}.” Isaiah 57:15]
11 The LORD knows the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12 Blessed is the man whom you chasten, O LORD, and teaches him out of your law;
13 That you mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
18 When I said, My foot slips; your mercy, O LORD, held me up.
19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me your comforts delight my soul.
20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with you, which frames mischief by a law?
21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
22 But the LORD is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.

In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

The “mourning” above refers to when Josiah the king of Judah was killed in battle, after which (mourning) Jehoahaz was anointed king. The name Jehoahaz means Jehovah has seized. These (the name and the anointing) lead us to the one time the Greek word harpazo, also meaning seized, appears in Revelation (12:6) where it’s rendered “caught up.” As we know, this is the word the false prophets and false teachers among us have twisted into the (heresy) false doctrine of the rapture. It’s the word rendered the same (“caught up”) in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, when the LORD seizes us into heaven (into full understanding), after He awakens those sleeping (dead flesh) in Him (“that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.”)

1 Thessalonians 4
6 That no man go beyond [overstep the limit] and defraud [over reach {come to false conclusions}] his brother in any matter: because that the LORD is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
7 For God has not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
8 He therefore that despises [rejects this doctrine], despises not man, but God, who has also given unto us his holy Spirit.
9 But as touching brotherly love you need not that I write unto you: for you yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
10 And indeed you do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia [the houses, churches, of dead flesh]: but we beseech you, brethren, that you increase more and more;
11 And that you study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
12 That you may walk honestly [with sound doctrine] toward them that are without, and that you may have lack of nothing.
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep [made dead by those who’ve over reached], that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the LORD, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the LORD shall not prevent [become ONE BODY until the awakening of] them which are asleep.
16 For the LORD himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel [I AM], and with the trump of God [calling all to gather to Him]: and the dead [sleeping flesh] in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up [hapazo – seized from the fires caused by the corrupt elements {stoicheion} of the world] together with them in the clouds [where the pure element are reassembled and sent as the latter rain], to meet the LORD in the air [bringing the clarity by which we see the LORD]: and so shall we ever be with the LORD.
18 Wherefore comfort [lead into all truth] one another with these words.

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 [as our oppressors now say – which is their COVID HOAX]; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child [the misleaders, the oppressor have no idea what they bring forth – see Revelation 12:5 below]; and they shall not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness [ignorance], that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 You are all the children of light [understanding], and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness [ignorance].
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our LORD Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11 Wherefore comfort [lead into all truth] yourselves together, and edify [educate] one another, even as also you do.
12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labor among you, and are over you in the LORD, and admonish you;
13 And to esteem [hegeomai – see Matthew 2:6 below] them very highly [huper] in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves. [This says to make him governor over you, for his charity’s sake, work that flow the way of peace to you, bringing you into ONE BODY together – See John 14:11 below]
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn [see Jude 1:23 below] them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

Revelation 16
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up [so what was hidden below its surface is seen], that the way of the kings [wise men who see the star] of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [which were before hidden in their words] come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief [unknown to the ignorant]. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments [unspotted by the flesh – see Jude 1:23 below], lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [this appointed time and place – the foretold rendezvous with God, who comes unknown to the ignorant].
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air [and all things were made clear]; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “IT IS DONE.”
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings [understanding heard – which shakes the earth]; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts [as in Zechariah 14:4, when we flee to the valley], and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven [the word of God, frozen in heaven, reserved until now], every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

The title verse, Zechariah 12:11, comes after the prior verse (10) says, “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him [as Josiah – the dead kings of those the LORD then seizes], as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Part of this verse is spoken by the LORD, in Matthew 24:30, as He speaks of the sign that will be seen in heaven, which is the same sign seen in Revelation 12:1 (of the women through who comes the man child seized into heaven).

Matthew 24
21 For then shall be great tribulation [caused by mass delusion – the COVID HOAX now being perpetrated upon all the world – like nothing ever before], such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise [have risen] false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning [understanding] comes out of the east [as the sun rising], and shineth even unto the west [giving light to all who’ve come out of the houses of the dead]; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcass is [the dead body of Christ – the dead who’ve come out of the churches], there will the eagles be gathered together [to give strength and life].
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened [the established church shall be without understanding], and the moon [civil government] shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall [away] from heaven [full understanding], and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken [so the wicked will be shaken from it]:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn [as in Zachariah 12:10, because those who have been their kings, ruling over them in church and state, are the dead], and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven [with full understanding] with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together [Judah first] his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other [the end of the old and the beginning of the new].
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves [when new life come after the winter darkness], you know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Truly I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 [The old] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour [the appointed time of the rendezvous] knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Revelation 12
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up [harpazo – seized] unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

The “signs” in heaven are those described in Acts 2:19, while quoting Joel, telling of the LORD now pouring upon us grace and supplication (Zachariah 12:10), which is the feeding described in Revelation 12:6 above.

Acts 2
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness [the church shall become ignorant], and the moon into blood [and the civil government shall drain away the life of men and nation], before the great and notable day [this appointed time] of the LORD come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be saved.
22 You men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as you yourselves also know:
23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
24 Whom God has raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
25 For David speaks concerning him, I foresaw the LORD always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27 Because you will not leave my soul in hell, neither will you suffer your Holy One to see corruption.
28 You have made known to me the ways of life; you shall make me full of joy with your countenance.
29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day.
30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
32 This Jesus has God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he has shed forth this, which you now see and hear.
34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he says himself, The LORD said unto my LORD, Sit you on my right hand,
35 Until I make your foes your footstool.
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God has made the same Jesus, whom you have crucified, both LORD and Christ.

The hegeomai, the “esteemed” one of 1 Thessalonians 5:13, is the coming “governor” spoke of in Matthew 2:6, when the chief priests and scribes, quoting from Micah 5:2, tell of where Christ is born.

Matthew 2
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men [kings] from the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star [as the sun rising in the darkness] in the east, and are come to worship him.
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled [tarasso – “to stir or agitate (roil water)”], and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
6 And you Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, are not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of you shall come a Governor [hegeomai], that shall rule my people Israel.

The name Megiddon is from the word gadad, which is also the origin of the name Gad.

Genesis 49
1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

18 (I have waited for your salvation, O LORD.)
19 Gad [the LORD’s army, overcome until their return to Him], a troop [gduwd] shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

Micah 5
1 Now gather yourself in troops [gadad], O daughter of troops [gduwd]: he has laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek.
2 But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
3 Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travails has brought forth [the man child]: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
4 And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends [the end of the old and the beginning of the new] of the earth.
5 And this man [Shiloh] shall be the peace, when the Assyrian [the communists] shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces [as they now do], then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.

Genesis 49
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet [speaking of the Davidic king line], until Shiloh come [meaning peace and tranquility – the one {Joseph’s seed – the one separated} from who it will again flow – see Ezekiel 21:27 and the overturning]; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine [this speaking of the lowly {Zechariah 9:9}, God’s elect remnant, outside the established sects, bound until Shiloh comes, when they are loosed]; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well [a tree of life by these waters of God]; whose branches run over the wall [the wall of lies men have created and teach]:
23 The archers [ba’al – the gods of this world whose teaching has blinded all from seeing the Father, in the son, the seed of the women who brings forth the man child – see Revelation 12:17] have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings of the breasts, and of the womb [seed, the son]:
26 The blessings of your father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors [all those who have come before us, and were only blessed with part of what is perfected in our return to the LORD] unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

The “ruler” mentioned above in Micah 5:2, the “governor” of Matthew 2:6, is the Hebrew word mashal, meaning “to rule:–(have, make to have) dominion, governor, X indeed, reign, (bear, cause to, have) rule(-ing, -r), have power.” It (mashal) appears once in Zechariah, in Zechariah 6:13, rendered “rule” in telling of when Joshua (Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh) the son of Josedech is crowned.

Zechariah 6
8 Then cried he upon me, and spoke unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
9 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai [worldly], of Tobijah [to whom Jehovah is good {not a misleader}], and of Jedaiah [who Jehovah has known], which are come from Babylon [out of confusion], and come you the same day, and go into the house of Josiah [who Jehovah heals] the son of Zephaniah [by Jehovah’s hidden treasures {this word}];
11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua [Jehovah’s Salvation personified] the son of Josedech [who is Jehovah’s righteousness], the high priest;
12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule [mashal] upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both [the one who is both king and priest].
14 And the crowns shall be to Helem [strength], and to Tobijah [to whom Jehovah is good {not a misleader}], and to Jedaiah [who Jehovah has known], and to Hen [favor and grace] the son of Zephaniah [by Jehovah’s hidden treasures {this word that was carried away into Shinar}], for a memorial [zikrown, meaning “a memento (or memorable thing, day or writing)” – the things of the storehouse remembered and “restored”] in the temple of the LORD.
15 And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if you will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.

The word zikrown refers us to what is written in Malachi 3:16, where it is rendered “remembrance.”

Malachi 3
8 Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse [these treasure into the churches called by My name, unto those sleeping in ignorance caused by my spirit there quieted, after the treasure, these words were carried away into Shinar, the place of the sleep], that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, says the LORD of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for you shall be a delightsome land, says the LORD of hosts.
13 Your words have been stout against me, says the LORD. Yet you say, What have we spoken so much against you?
14 You have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work [‘asah] wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
16 Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance [zikrown – reminding of the things forgotten] was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up [‘asah – do My work upon] my jewels [My people who are My crown – as opposed to the piercing, the crown of thorns placed there by the misleaders – Zechariah 9:16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign {a sign in heaven, upon the one they pierced} upon his land.]; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall you return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves him not.

In the post of 27 August 2020, the LORD begins with quoting Revelation 12:15. The passages there following, as do the above, speak of my coming, as the man child born and caught up to the throne where I now sit. You are those then spoken of as the woman fed in the wilderness, which brings the understanding you’ve now received, giving the strength to bring forth the child in you. This is the rising of the ONE BODY of Christ.

The LORD has given us revelation, revealing the mysteries in these great treasures. Christ-like charity (agape – love) freely gives as He has given, as tithes into His sleeping churches. Giving just one-tenth of what He has given opens (has opened) the windows in heaven.

Isaiah 8
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 the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hides his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs 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, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? [Should they be looking] for the living to the dead?
20 [Or should they be looking] To the law and to the testimony [these treasures?]: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light [understanding] in them.

And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

As we know, the waters are words, here as venom from a snake’s mouth, meant to poison and rot the minds of those it flows to, like a polluted river into the sea. In the verses before the above, Revelation 12:15, we are told these come as endless, day and night, false accusations against God’s people. We know them as the lies and demonization of innocent people who refuse to surrender and bow to their distorted reality. As we know, the flood is the intensification of lies, the mass delusions [the COVID HOAX] spewed by the willfully insane, and the destruction of lives and livelihoods that are their mark (the mark in their head and hand, their ideas and works).

Revelation 12
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood 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 swallowed up the flood which the dragon [the serpent] cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon [the serpent] 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.

The above is the LORD referring us to the chapters that here follow, which describe this time and the self-destruction, (when it is done, and the LORD shortens, quickens, it) the final end of the evil now destroying the earth and attacking God’s people. He begins with the prophecy He speaks in Jeremiah 27:22, which tells of when all things in His house are carried into Babylon (confusion). He says they will remain there, serving the king of Babylon, until now, when He visits, brings them up and restores them (understanding) to their place.

Jeremiah 27
14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of the [false] prophets that speak unto you [the lying mass media], saying, You shall not serve the king of Babylon [saying this isn’t confusion and the foretold mass delusion]: for they prophesy a lie unto you.
15 For I have not sent them, says the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that you might perish, you, and the prophets that prophesy unto you.
16 Also I spoke to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus says the LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD’s house shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon [the wickedness that was already at work, false prophets saying they have understanding, when its confusion now resulted in all understanding, all the truth of the LORD’s house, carried into confusion, where they remain]: for they prophesy a lie unto you.

21 Yea, thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem;
22 They shall be carried to Babylon [all have been taken away into confusion], and there shall they be until the day that I visit them, says the LORD; then will I bring them up, and restore them to this place.

This final carrying away is what Zachariah sees and records in Zechariah 5. There it’s the roll, the book, the word of God, that flies away. We’re told of the curse that enters the house of those who swear falsely in the LORD’s name. As a result, it’s then seen as an ephah, representing justice, corrupted by an unfaithful woman. She is next seen with another woman (faithful and the unfaithful) flying away into Shinar, another name for Babylon, from the word shenath meaning sleep.

In Daniel 1:2, we’re told the vessels of the house of God were carried into Shinar (sleep in confusion) into the house Nebuchadnezzar’s god (the lies of false prophets in church and state, which caused the desolation of God’s people and holds them there in confusion and mass delusion).

Zechariah 5
1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll [megillah].
2 And he said unto me, What see you? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.
3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that steals shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that swears shall be cut off as on that side according to it.
4 I will bring it forth, says the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that swears falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now your eyes, and see what is this that goes forth.
6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goes forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.
7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sit in the midst of the ephah.
8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof [the words thereof].
9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.
10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?
11 And he said unto me, To build it a house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.

The “roll” above is the same “volume” of the book, in which the LORD’s appearing is written. This is said in Psalms 40:7 and quoted in Hebrews 10:7. It’s the same roll spoken of in Ezekiel 2 & 3, which Ezekiel, the son of man, eats and becomes the words he speaks.

Psalms 40
5 Many, O LORD my God, are your wonderful works which you have done, and your thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto you: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire; mine ears have you opened: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [megillah] it is written of me,
8 I delight to do your will, O my God: yea, your law is within my heart.
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, you know.
10 I have not hid your righteousness within my heart; I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation: I have not concealed your lovingkindness and your truth from the great congregation.

Hebrews 10
5 Wherefore when he [the man child born] 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.

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 his enemies be made his footstool.

Ezekiel 2
6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns [misleaders] be with you, and you do dwell among scorpions [whose venom rots men’s minds]: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7 And you shall speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
8 But you, son of man, hear what I say unto you; Be not you rebellious like that rebellious house: open your mouth, and eat that I give you.
9 And when I looked, behold, a hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll [megillah] of a book was therein;
10 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

Ezekiel 3
1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that you find; eat this roll [megillah], and go speak unto the house of Israel.
2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll [mgillah].

John 14
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.

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost [the LORD unknown, preaching and teaching, from the volume of the book, in a body He has prepared for himself], whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance [zikrown], whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you [leaving you in Jerusalem, even as all truth was carried into Babylon], 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 come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, you might believe.

The Father is the son who is the Father, born by the proclamation of the Father speaking in and through Him unknown as the Comforter (Paraclete XP), the Holy Spirit, ONE GOD IN HIS ONE BODY, who we know as He reveals His presence in the fruit of (see Malachi 3:11 above) His word and work. “Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.” Isaiah 8:18

1 Timothy 3
14 These things write I unto you, hoping to come unto you shortly:
15 But if I tarry long, that you mayest 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.

Zechariah 12
4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse [all those who think they are strong] with astonishment, and his rider with madness [the insanity of this day, when men can’t tell the difference between reality and their own delusions]: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah [this marvelous eye-opening is referring to what is seen and written in Zechariah 9:7 thru 11], and will smite every horse of the people with blindness [and they shall lead the blind into the pit of hell].

Zechariah 9
7 And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth [I will take away the corrupt, confused, words from their mouths]: but he that remains [in Jerusalem, in the words of My peace], even he, shall be for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite [and those without MY peace {Jebus [in the threshing place] without salem} shall be irradicated, {as thorns and briers in My garden} torn up by the roots].
8 And I will encamp about mine house because of the army, because of him that passes by, and because of him that returns: and no oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now have I SEEN WITH MINE EYES.
9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King comes unto you: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he [the king] shall speak peace unto the heathen [who don’t know God]: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea [to all generations], and from the river [when His word flow into them] even to the ends [the end of the old and the beginning] of the [new] earth [wherein dwells righteousness].
11 As for you also, by the blood of your covenant I have sent forth your prisoners out of the pit [of hell] wherein is no water [no word of God, which is truth and His good shepherding].

Zechariah 12
5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] their God.
6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like a hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah [My elect remnant the children the LORD has given me] first, that the glory of the house of David [their one king] and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon [the mighty, who are as your kings, who think they are the upright fruit] in the valley of Megiddon [in this war, at this appointed time – {How is it you wise men know not the time?}].
12 And the land shall mourn [when all are separated from the dead who lead them], every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;
13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;
14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.

Zachariah 13
1 In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
2 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit [as frogs from their mouths] to pass out of the land.
3 And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, You shall not live; for you speak lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesies.
4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the [false] prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he has prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
5 But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am a husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in your hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends [who stopped my work with the lies they told in My name].
7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered [separated from those who are the heads of their houses]: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones [tsa’ar].
8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Zechariah 14
1 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, and your spoil shall be divided in the midst of you.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And you shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal [when you are separated from the high places, by this reserved word of God]: yea, you shall flee [from these misleaders, who are under the LORD’s feet, as His footstool], like as you fled from before the earthquake [when the wicked are shaken from the new heaven and earth] in the days of Uzziah [shaken by Jehovah’s strenth, His understand come] king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with you [See Jude 1 and Enoch’s foretelling this].
6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light [understanding] shall not be clear [shall not be realized], nor dark [even though it’s no longer hidden in ignorance]:
7 But it shall be one day [when the time is reached {NOW} when God’s people must rise to preach and teach the word He has given us – How is it that you wise men know not the the day of the LORD’s presence? Is it because you are not His, and therefore cannot hear His voice?] which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light [when the light has almost completely left, understanding shall come {comprehended not}, as darkness falls complete in the now mass delusion].
8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem [this word of God from His people]; half of them toward the former sea [the last generation of the old corrupt world], and half of them toward the hinder sea [the new generation in this new heaven and earth, wherein dwells righteousness]: in summer and in winter [to the zealous and the sleeping] shall it be.
9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be ONE LORD, and his name ONE.
10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon [when the high places of those who think they are the upright fruit, are humbled] south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate [when entering they become the right hand of God] unto the place of the first gate [with Judah the elect remnant], unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses [who God has shown favor, whose positions are their advantage and strength, who receive His grace and mercy in this judgment].
11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their [works of the] flesh shall consume [maqaq – melt away in the fire they’ve caused] away while they stand upon their feet [are risen in the flesh], and their eyes [what they’ve seen, their corrupt understanding] shall consume [maqaq – shall melt] away in their holes, and their tongue [their word they have exalted above God’s, with which they misled and destroyed the world] shall consume [maqaq – shall melt] away in their mouth.
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor.
14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.
15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles [leaving their houses to dwell in Him].
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families [separated from the misleaders, the dead who’ve been their kings] of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the [ONE] King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt [the separated families who were oppressed by their misleaders] go not up, and come not, that have no rain [no word of God, the light, understanding that only come from Him, which only brings life again in the earth]; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt [the oppressors], and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses [ringing out from the strong], Holiness Unto The LORD; and the pots in the LORD’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar [filled with the blood of His sacrifice].
21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite [those zealous against the living God and His children] in the house of the LORD of hosts.

1 John 2
15 Love not the [old] world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love [agape – giving as He gives] of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes [seeing the way man sees], and the pride of life [the pride that believes his own ways are perfect], is not of the Father, but is of the world [and they shall melt away].
17 And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides forever.
18 Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1 John 4
4 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 confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth 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 that is in you, than he 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.
7 Beloved, let us love [agapao – give this word to] one another: for love [agape – this charity] is of God; and every one that loves [agapao – gives this word of God] is born of God, and knows God.
8 He that loves [agapao – gives this word] not, knows not God; for God is love [agape – charity].
9 In this was manifested the love [agape – charity, God giving His word to us] of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world [giving us His word through Him], that we might live [by the light, the understanding that comes only] through him.

1 John 5
1 Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born [I AM] of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten [the children the LORD has given me] of him.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love [agape – charity, giving as God has given us] of God, that we keep [tereo – guard from corruption] his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. [Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.]
5 Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus [Jehovah’s Salvation come in the flesh] is the Son of God?
6 This is he that came by water [the word] and blood [and sacrifice], even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness [justifies – see 1 Timothy 3:16 above], because the Spirit is truth.
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven [from the place of full understanding], the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit [The LORD unknow in the Son, who is Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh – who is the Father, Word, and Holy Ghost speaking truth, full understanding given from heaven], and the water [His word], and the blood [and the sacrifice, in the body the LORD prepared for Himself, necessary to give the word as received]: and these three agree in one.
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he has testified of his Son.
10 He that believes on the Son of God has the witness in himself: he that believes not God has made him a liar; because he believes not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Jude 1
12 These [antichrists] are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water [without the word of God], carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withers, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots [as Ekron – see Zachariah 12:7 above];
13 Raging waves [without peace – as Jebusite – see Zachariah 12:7 above] of the sea [agitating all humanity], foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness [their own 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 mouth speaks great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
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 [from God], 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 – seizing] them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh [by the antichrist of verse 12 above].
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Psalms 16
1 Preserve me, O God: for in you do I put my trust.
2 O my soul, you have said unto the LORD, You are my LORD: my goodness extends not to you;
3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood [which drains the life from those receiving it] will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: you maintain my lot.
6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage [in new Jerusalem].
7 I will bless the LORD, who has given me counsel: my reins [His word in me] also instruct me [into His good way] in the night seasons [when ignorance covers the earth in the shadow of death].
8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices: my flesh also shall rest [in peace] in hope.
10 For you will not leave my soul in hell; neither will you suffer your Holy One to see corruption.
11 You will show me the path [way] of life: in your presence [which I see with mine eyes] is fulness of joy; at your right hand [where I sit enthroned] there are pleasures for evermore.

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

In the above, Zechariah 13:7, the LORD speaks of His ONE BODY, which remains scattered in the hands of the shepherds He speaks of in prior verses and chapters. The first of these mentions appears in Zechariah 10, which begins with the LORD telling us to ask of Him rain in the time of the latter rain. As we know, this speaks of his word from heaven, from the cloud where understanding is held when its elements were separated and removed from the earth (and replaced with the corrupt elements of men).

In the following verses, speaking of this removal, we’re told of what replaced it as what brings the troubles, when the people go their own way because there is no (good) shepherd. The LORD then says His anger is kindled against these shepherds; therefore, He’s visited His people, and those who’ve received the latter rain have become His goodly horse in the battle in which we find ourselves.

As we know, His coming, lowly and unknown, proclaimed earlier in Zechariah 9:9, is to the lowly and unknown, who are the “little ones” spoken of in the title verse. They are here described as “an ass” and “a colt the foal of an ass” He’s riding. The words “little ones” are from the three times used Hebrew word tsa’ar, meaning “to be small, i.e. (figuratively) ignoble.” The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon defines it as: “to be or grow insignificant, grow small.” It’s speaking of the process of degeneration, occurring under the shepherds who’ve scattered them, resulting in desolation.

The LORD says it’s because of the army, those among us warring against us (a fact still unaccepted by all but the very elect remnant), He has come to encamp about His house. He says these (His house) are those who’ve returned and now see Him.

Zechariah 9
8 And I will encamp about mine house because of the army, because of him that passes by, and because of him that returns: and no oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now have I seen with mine eyes.
9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King comes unto you: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.
11 As for you also, by the blood of your covenant I have sent forth your prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
12 Turn you to the strong hold, you prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto you;
13 When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and made you as the sword of a mighty man.
14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning [understanding]: and the LORD God shall blow the trumpet [calling His people to gather], and shall go with whirlwinds [from where His voice is heard] of the south.
15 The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the altar.
16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.
17 For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids.

Zechariah 10
1 Ask you of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds [understanding seen in them], and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field [His understanding from the cloud brings life again on earth].
2 For the idols [put in God’s place] have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their [own] way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no [good] shepherd.
3 Mine anger was kindled against the [corrupt] shepherds, and I punished the goats [who as Lucifer, mislead their flocks]: for the LORD of hosts has visited his flock the house of Judah, and has made them as his goodly horse in the battle.
4 Out of him came forth the corner [pinnah – those who turn to a new nation, following the Stone the builders rejected], out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow [Judah – the elect remnant], out of him every oppressor together.
5 And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be confounded [those whose strength is to mislead, shall not reach the end they seek].
6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph [from where comes the Strone and the good shepherd], and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them.
7 And they of Ephraim [the children of Joseph – God’s people in this generation] shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine: yea, their children shall see it, and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the LORD.
8 I will hiss for them [to draw their attention to the LORD], and gather them [into ONE BODY]; for I have redeemed them: and they shall increase as they have increased.
9 And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again.
10 I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt [of their oppressors], and gather them out of Assyria [from the communists]; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon [this word of God, which brings purity again into the high places]; and place shall not be found for them.
11 And he shall pass through the sea with affliction, and shall smite the waves in the sea, and all the deeps of the river shall dry up: and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the scepter of Egypt shall depart away.
12 And I will strengthen them in the LORD; and they shall walk up and down in his name, saith the LORD.

Genesis 49
1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

8 Judah [the leaders God choses], you are he whom your brethren shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father’s children shall bow down before you.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet [speaking of the Davidic king line], until Shiloh come [the place the LORD first set His name – the name Shiloh meaning peace and tranquility – the coming one {Joseph’s seed – the one separated} from who it will again flow – see Ezekiel 21:27 and the overturning]; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine [this speaking of the lowly {Zechariah 9:9}, God’s elect remnant, outside the established sects, bound until Shiloh comes, when they are loosed]; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
13 Zebulun [the lowly raised up at the LORD’s coming] shall dwell at the haven of the sea [safe from the masses]; and he shall be for a haven of ships [and saving any who come to the LORD through them]; and his border shall be unto Zidon [they will be the end of those who’ve hunted souls].
14 Issachar [through him will come the reward – the fruitful bough] is a strong ass [the LORD’s people, now become His goodly horse in the battle – Zechariah 10:3] couching down between two burdens [Beauty and Bands]:
15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant [na’em – the agreement with the Father, in which He delights]; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.
16 Dan [the judge – speaking of strength returned and the righteous judgment of the world begins] shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way [as a serpent raised as a standard on a pole {nec}], an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels [this is the heel bruised in the judgment, meaning the serpents among the people, are rendered without effect], so that his rider shall fall backward [so the body of Christ will return to the place from which she fell – see, in Isaiah 28:13, what causes them to fall backward].
18 (I have waited for your salvation, O LORD.)
19 Gad [the LORD’s army, overcome until their return to Him], a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.
20 Out of Asher [happy] his bread shall be fat [happiness returns when the word of God prospers], and he shall yield royal dainties [ma’adan – speaking of the royal line again raised up – referring us to its use in Proverbs 29:17, telling us this is when rest returns, when we, by correction, give the Father “delight”].
21 Naphtali [by this wrestling – unknowingly with the LORD] is a hind let loose: he gives goodly words [our tongue {the word of God} is loosed and we teach it as received directly from Him].
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well [a tree of life by these waters of God]; whose branches run over the wall [the wall of lies men have created and teach]:
23 The archers [ba’al – the gods of this world whose teaching has blinded all form seeing the Father, in the son, the seed of the women who brings forth the man child – see Revelation 12:17] have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings of the breasts, and of the womb [seed, the son]:
26 The blessings of your father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors [all those who have come before us, and were only blessed with part of what is perfected in our return to the LORD] unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

When Zechariah 10:3 mentions the “goats” the LORD will punish, it’s the Hebrew word ‘attuwd, meaning “prepared, i.e. full grown; spoken only (in plural) of he-goats, or (figuratively) leaders of the people.” It’s meant to refer us to its appearing in Isaiah 14:9 where its rendered “chief ones” of the earth.

Isaiah 14
3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear, and from the hard bondage wherein you were made to serve,
4 That you shall take up this proverb against the king of Babylon [the rulers of confusion that is the shadow of death covering the world], and say, How has the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!
5 The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers.
6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hinders.
7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at you, and the cedars of Lebanon [the upright in high place], saying, Since you are laid down, no feller is come up against us.
9 Hell from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming: it stirs up the dead for you, even all the chief ones [‘attuwd – the goat who mislead as Lucifer] of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
10 All they shall speak and say unto you, Are you also become weak as we? are you become like unto us?
11 Your pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of your viols: the worm is spread under you, and the worms cover you [your dead flesh].
12 How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer [heyel – light bringer {wicked Popes and Presidents, who boast of their own righteousness and great understand} – from who flows the deception, the bad advice meant to destroy God’s people and the world. 2 Corinthians 11: 4 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.], son of the morning! how are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God [above all His people, ruling then as he wills]: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north [their true motives hidden in the ignorance they’ve cultivated]:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds [they exalt themselves and their ideas above God’s understanding and way]; I will be like the Most High [they believe they are almighty].
15 Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit [they have dug, into which they blindly fall with the blind following them].
16 They that see you shall narrowly look upon you, and consider you, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners [all humanity they now hold captive through their lies]?
18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.
19 But you are cast out of your grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet.
20 You shall not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, and slain your people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.
23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern [all those in league with Satan], and pools of water [all their word, their underlying motives, together shall be understood]: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.
24 The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
25 That I will break the Assyrian [communists – Pope, President, and their minions] in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.
26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.
27 For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

Here is Job describing the “little ones” [tsa’ar) to who the LORD turns to save them from the troubles in which they now find themselves.

Job 14
1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.
2 He comes forth like a flower, and is cut down: he flees also as a shadow, and continues not.
3 And do you open your eyes upon such an one, and bring me into judgment with you?
4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one [except God].
5 Seeing [by Him] his days are determined, the number of his months are with you, [LORD] 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 [as does man when the LORD sends His word], 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 [the word of God] fail from the sea [from humanity], and the flood [of these same waters] decays and dries up [as in Genesis 8:13]:
12 So man lieth down, and rises not: till the heavens [until full understanding] be no more, [without which] 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 [until understanding take hold of me, and I see I am hidden here in the grave until your wrath is past, and the flood is dried up after it’s destroyed the enemies].
15 You shall call, and I [the living quickened to life] will answer you: you will have a desire to the work of your hands [which is, through His messengers, to destroy the enemies, those appointed to remain in death, and refresh your children into life everlasting; AS PROMISED].
16 For now you number my steps: do you not watch over my sin [to take it away by understanding]?
17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag [until this time], and you sew up mine iniquity.
18 And surely the mountains [the high places of this corrupt world] falling comes to naught, and the rock [in which they trust] is removed out of his place.
19 The waters wear the stones [from where their word flow]: you wash away the things which grow out of the dust [ruin] of the [desolate and corrupt] earth; and you destroy the hope of man [which is in men who have misled them into hell].
20 You prevail forever against him, and he passes: you change his countenance, and send him away [from you presence, into death].
21 His sons come to honor [by the same corrupt means], and [in the darkness of ignorance] he knows it not; and they are brought low [tsa’ar – made small], but he perceives [understands it not, because he has become dead in his ignorance] it not of them.
22 But his flesh upon him [in death] shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn [because there is no way out of death when following those who’ve led there].

As we’ve often seen, later in Job 33, Elihu (He is God, His presence manifested in him) continues from the above point. There he tells of God recovering and refreshing us (the lowly, His little ones) from the death they are (now) born into, in the flesh, which Job knows but doesn’t yet perceive and accept as reality.

Job 19
22 Why do you persecute [manifest your hate against] me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh [who God is using to draw out the erroneous thinking risen from the ruin {dust, ashes of the fires of hell} of the corrupt earth where we now all find ourselves]?
23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book [as they are]!
24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock [in this messenger God sends] forever!
25 For I know that my redeemer lives, and that he shall stand [to ransom me from death] at the latter day upon the earth:
26 And though after my skin [of the body that was] worms destroy this [old flesh] body, yet in my [new] flesh shall I see God:
27 Whom I shall see for myself [when I am changed by His understanding in me], and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins [the old corrupt ways that led me into death] be consumed within me.
28 But you [whose ways and thoughts are the corrupt elements of the earth] should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root [sheresh – the deep meaning] of the matter is found in me [to recover you from corruption into life]?
29 Be you afraid of the sword [this word of God, sent to refresh {My way} and not for destruction {man’s way}]: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that you may know there is a judgment [in which all humanity now finds itself].

Job 33
2 Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue has spoken in my mouth.
3 My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
4 The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.
5 If you can answer me, set your words in order before me, stand up.
6 Behold, I [‘aniy] AM according to your wish in God’s stead [‘aniy – I AM]: I also am formed [as by the potter] out of the clay [chomer – the mire stirred by the feet of man, which clouding the waters – Job 30:19 He has cast me into the mire {chomer}, and I am become like dust and ashes.].
7 Behold, my terror shall not make you afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon you.
8 Surely you have spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of your words, [God’s people, who are hated in the earth, who still haven’t perceived His long-suffering work and way, “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”] saying,
9 I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.
10 Behold, he finds occasions against me, he counts me for his enemy,
11 He puts my feet in the stocks, he marks all my paths.
12 Behold, in this you are not just: I will answer you, that God is greater than man.
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 [still] perceives it not.
15 In a dream [of those sleeping in death], in a vision of the night [in the darkness of their ignorance], when deep sleep [of ignorance of the deep things] falls upon men, in slumbering [while thinking they are wise] upon the bed;
16 Then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction [as He now has, but yet they refuse His way],
17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide [thinking they are wise and know all, when they know nothing except corruption] pride from man.
18 He keeps back his soul from the pit [in which they fall after being led their by the wisdom of the world, falsely so-called], and his life from perishing [perdition] by the sword [that comes from not heeding the warning and it instruction, and changing your way].
19 He is chastened [corrected] also with pain upon his bed [where he is sleeping], and the multitude of his bones with strong pain [the troubles that come from following misleaders]:
20 So that his life abhor bread [of men], and his soul dainty meat.
21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.
22 Yea, his soul draws near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.
23 If there be a messenger with him [as I AM], an interpreter [by the understand He’s put in me], one among a thousand, to show unto man God’s uprightness:
24 Then he is gracious [freely giving this gift of His treasures from heaven] unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom [to redeem them from death].
25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s [which is the “refreshing” spoken of in Isaiah 28:12, saying “this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear”] 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 [presence] with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness [correction into His good right way].
27 He looks 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 [understanding shall give him life – John 1: 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men].
29 Lo, all these things works God oftentimes with man,
30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

Romans 10
6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaks on this wise, Say not in your heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh you, even in your mouth [as His messenger, confessing He is alive in you and speaking this message to save the world], and in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach [face to face];
9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the LORD Jesus [is speaking in and through us], and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith [in Isaiah 28:16], Whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.

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, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.
3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim [the powers now misleading God’s people, whose way is destruction], shall be trodden under feet:
4 And the glorious beauty [as the splendor of Satan’s appearance, by which he destroys and devours God’s people, the fruit the LORD comes to take from his hold {katecho}], which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the summer; which when he that looks upon it see, while it is yet in his hand he eats it up.
5 In that day shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people,
6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.
7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
8 For all tables are full of vomit [of the drunken] and filthiness, so that there is no place clean. [1 Timothy 4: 16 Take heed unto yourself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself, and them that hear you.]
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine [shmuw’ah – this report]? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts [who now draw from the Ancient of Days].
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue [words that are God’s truth, which are as a foreign language to His people who’ve been brought up on corruption and lies] will he speak to this people.
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, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [pinnah] stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste [be ashamed].
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 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 [shmuw’ah].

Hebrews 9
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment [resurrection into the new and living way]:
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 without sin [after the Father has written His word into our minds, and remembers our sin no more] unto salvation.

2 Peter 1
11 For so an entrance [eisodos] shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you know them, and be established in the present truth.
13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our LORD Jesus Christ has shown me.
15 Moreover I will endeavor that you may be able after my decease [exodos – once to die] to have these things always in remembrance.
16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming [parousia – the presence] of our LORD Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 For he received from God the Father honor [time – Tim] and glory [doxa], when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory [doxa], “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased [hear you Him].”
18 And this voice which came from heaven [from the place of full understanding] 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 [understanding] that shineth in a dark [an ignorant] place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts [when the understanding of this new heaven and earth brings life to your mind]:
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
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.

2 Peter 2
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.

2 Peter 3
1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2 That you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the LORD and Savior:
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming [parousia – presence]? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God [His presence manifested] 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 [this word], perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire [the fire mentioned in verse 12 below – in the old heaven, the old corrupt understanding] against the day of judgment and perdition [apoleia] of ungodly men [who corrupted it and brought darkness upon the world].
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; in the which the heavens [the old corrupt understanding] shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements [stoicheion – the rudiments of the world, the corrupt ideas of this evil generation] shall melt with fervent heat, 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 [preaching the ways, manner, of life],
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 – the corrupt ideas] shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness [the way of truth and justice].
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 – perdition].
17 You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall 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 2
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the LORD has said unto me, You are my Son; this day have I begotten you.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O you kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalms 19
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handywork.
2 Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night shows knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends 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.
11 Moreover by them is your servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his [own] errors? cleanse you me from secret faults.
13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
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.

Psalms 110
1 The LORD said unto my LORD, Sit you at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.
2 The LORD shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion: rule you in the midst of your enemies.
3 Your people shall be willing in the day of your power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: you have the dew of your youth.
4 The LORD has sworn, and will not repent, You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
5 The LORD at your right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
7 He shall drink of the brook [the word of God] in the WAY: therefore shall he lift up the head [of His son and king, the head of His ONE BODY].

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

The “way” above, Malachi 3:1, is the Hebrew word derek, meaning “a road (as trodden); figuratively, a course of life or mode of action, often adverb.”

What follows in the chapter tells of the work of the messenger, restoring and refreshing the way before us, and the LORD, who is the messenger of the covenant, shall suddenly (unexpectedly) come to His temple. The verse says it’s the LORD (Jehovah) of hosts (who is a man of war) speaking of the LORD (‘adown) who is God in His king. It is the same wording and context we’ve discussed appearing in Psalms 110:1, which says, “The LORD (Jehovah) said unto my LORD (‘adown), Sit you at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.”

This work, refining and purify God’s people, spoken of in Malachi as the work of the messenger who is the coming king, brings remembrance of His way, so we follow Him only, which is also, in like manner, spoken of in Isaiah 1:24.

Isaiah 1
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD [Jehovah]: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land:
20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD [Jehovah] has spoken it.
21 How is the faithful city become a harlot [leaving the LORD and following other men]! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
22 Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water:
23 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come unto them.
24 Therefore saith the LORD [‘adown – in His messenger and king], the LORD of hosts [Jehovah the man of war], the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies [and make them the footstool of My messenger and king]:
25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and purely purge away your dross, and take away all your tin:
26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD [Jehovah] shall be consumed.

Malachi 3
1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed.
7 Even from the days of your fathers you are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But you said, Wherein shall we return?

When the above speaks of the way (derek) “prepared” by the messenger, it is the Hebrew word panah, meaning “to turn; by implication, to face, i.e. appear, look.” In the verse, what appears (eventually realized through understanding) is the LORD in the messenger, His presence (work) not only proving (declaring) His son and king, but also His high priest.

Malachi 2
1 And now, O you priests, this commandment is for you.
2 If you will not hear, and if you will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because you do not lay it to heart.
3 Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.
4 And you shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before [paniym] my name [in My presence].
6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
7 For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek [baqash] the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
8 But you are departed out of the way [derek – My way]; you have caused many to stumble at the law; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as you have not kept my ways [derek], but have been partial in the law.

The words rendered “partial” are nasa’ paniym, meaning these priests have lifted the presence (person) of others, in the law, meaning they have perverted judgment: applying it differently depending on the person. (Suffer with me while I preach, as a priest should, adding context: most of the churches of the day are filled with people who vote for government (men in them) whose WAYS are antichrist, while they claim they are following CHRIST. They, by proxy, KILL innocent human children calling it choice, STEAL from their neighbors calling taxation after COVETING what they have calling it social justice, oppress their neighbors BEARING FALSE WITNESS it is a pandemic emergency, to name a few. Their priests say nothing, and in their acquiescence, they pervert judgment, disturb the peace of the nation, and elevate (nasa’) the wicked into power. For this, the nation is cursed with a curse of its own making, the consequence of devolutionary (primitive and uncivilized) acts known to produce the outcomes they have.)

Malachi 3
8 Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for you shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.
13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet you say, What have we spoken so much against you?
14 You have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance [you shall not kill, steal, covet, or bear false witness], and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up [elevated into power]; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
16 Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him.
18 Then shall you return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves him not.

Malachi 4
1 For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun [the understanding of a new day] of righteousness arise with healing in his wings [Matthew 23: 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings [to protect and teach], and you would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate [because you reject this protection and teaching]. 39 For I say unto you, You shall not see [not understand, because of your rejection] me henceforth, till you shall say, “Blessed is he that comes in the name of the LORD.”]; and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
3 And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
4 Remember you the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto [tsavah – which I charged – see the charges given Timothy, me, below] him in Horeb [when I untaught you the ways of oppression and taught you My WAY] for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

The Sun rising is the panah (“preparation”) by the LORD, the Stone who is become the head of the corner (gonia – pinnah), turning us in a new direction, which is the new nation in the new heaven and earth, wherein dwell righteousness.

Psalms 118
12 They [the wicked in church and state] compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns [misleaders]: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
13 You have thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.
16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
18 The LORD has chastened me sore: but he has not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
21 I will praise you: for you have heard me, and are become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner [pinnah – gonia].
23 This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in [opening] our eyes [and healing us].
24 This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now [Hosanna], I beseech you, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech you, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that comes in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

The “gates” of righteousness are the mouths of God’s people, opened with understanding, declaring His presence and glory, saying “Blessed is he that comes in the name of the LORD.”

When the verse quoted above continues, saying, “we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD,” it is referring to what is spoken in the title, when He will suddenly appears in His temple, even the messenger of the covenant. It says He is the one you “seek,” the LORD thereby referring us to Hebrews 11:1 & 6, saying “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” and “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

This “seeking,” from the Hebrew word baqash, is for the word of God from the mouth of His messenger, as is said in Malachi 2:7 above, saying, “For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek [baqash] the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger [mal’ak] of the LORD of hosts.” It is through this WAY the LORD manifests His presence, rendering His righteousness to man, when he repents and turns to Him.

Ezekiel 43
1 Afterward he brought me to the gate [sha’ar], even the gate that looketh [baqash – seeking the Sun rising] toward [derek – the way] the east:
2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way [derek] of the east [the LORD’s coming is in the WAY of the Sun rising]: and his voice was like a noise of many waters [this word of God from heaven]: and the earth shined [was given understanding] with his glory.
3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar [far off – this time]; and I fell upon my face.
4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house [suddenly] by the way [derek] of the gate [sha’ar] whose prospect is toward [derek] the east [His way is to come as the Sun rising].
5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.
6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man [I Am] stood by me.
7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom [those who’ve left Me], nor by the carcasses of their kings [the dead] in their high places.
8 In their setting of their threshold [their gate, their open mouths holding My people in hell] by my thresholds [My way, entering My kingdom], and their post by my posts, and the wall [lies upon lies] between me and them, they have even defiled my holy name by their abominations [the lies they’ve put in My place] that they have committed: wherefore I have [with My fire] consumed them in mine anger.
9 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcasses of their kings [the dead who rule over you in death, holding you down {katecho}, who will until they are taken out of the way {mesos – out of your midst}], far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them forever.

Job 33
2 Behold, now I have opened my mouth [in the way of God, the gate of His righteousness, opened as His messenger, His presence in His son, king, and chief priest in the order of Melchisedec], my tongue has spoken in my mouth.
3 My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
4 The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.
5 If you can answer me, set your words in order before me, stand up.
6 Behold, I am according to your wish in God’s stead: I also am formed out of the clay.
7 Behold, my terror shall not make you afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon you.
8 Surely you have spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of your words, saying,
9 I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.
10 Behold, he finds occasions against me, he counts me for his enemy,
11 He puts my feet in the stocks, he marks all my paths.
12 Behold, in this you are not just: I will answer you, that God is greater than man.
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 [because He is veiled in a flesh man].
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.
18 He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:
20 So that his life abhors bread, and his soul dainty meat.
21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.
22 Yea, his soul draws near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.
23 If there be a messenger [mal’ak] with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show unto man his uprightness:
24 Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, 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 looks 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 Hebrew word above rendered “messenger,” mal’ak, means “to dispatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically, of God, i.e. an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher).” It is speaking of the one the LORD sends to His people who will become heirs of His kingdom (the earth), by His WAY (derek), which is manifesting Himself, at His will, in His messenger, son, king, chief priest, teacher, the LORD of hosts, a man of war, and the angel of the LORD.

Deuteronomy 18
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto you [Moses], and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command [tsavah – charge] him.
19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded [tsavah – charge] him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
21 And if you say in your heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?
22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken, but the prophet has spoken it presumptuously: you shall not be afraid of him.

2 Timothy 4
1 I charge you therefore before God, and the LORD Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word [of God, as commanded]; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch you in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry [in the order of Melchisedec, as ordained, in the prophesies sent before me – See Deuteronomy 18 above].

1 Timothy 1
17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
18 This charge I commit unto you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might war a good warfare;
19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
20 Of whom is Hymenaeus [who forbid you joining with the LORD] and Alexander [who have perverted judgment, being partial in it]; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

1 Timothy 5
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.

1 Timothy 6
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
13 I give you charge in the sight of God, who quickens [brings to light and life] all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
14 That you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing [epiphaneia – manifestation, of the presence] of our LORD Jesus Christ:
15 Which in his times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and LORD of lords;
16 Who only has immortality, dwelling in the light [unsderstanding] which no man can approach unto; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.

2 Timothy 4
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing [epiphaneia – the manifestation of His presence].

2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming [parousia – presence] of our LORD Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together [into ONE BODY] unto him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [an apostasy – a standing away from the truth – see atopos in 2 Thessalonians 3:2] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [in the pattern of Rueben, who went up into his father’s place, and will not remain];
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits [preaching and teaching] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now you know what withholds [katecho – holds down] that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets [katecho – holds down] will let, until he be taken out of the way [mesos – out of your midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked [see 2 Thessalonians 3:2] be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [epiphaneia – the manifestation of His presence giving understanding] of his coming [parousia – presence]:
9 Even him [the LORD in me], whose coming [parousia – presence] is after the working [after the deception has misled all into apostasy] of Satan [those sitting in God’s place resisting Him at His coming] with all power and signs and lying wonders [misleading all],
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [the HOAX that now rules the world], that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the LORD, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast [don’t fall away], and hold [into the future] the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16 Now our LORD Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
17 Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.

Psalms 104
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with honor and majesty.
2 Who covers yourself with light [understanding] as with a garment: who stretches out the heavens [full understanding] like a curtain:
3 Who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters [this word of God]: who makes the clouds [from where understanding comes] his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind [of sound doctrine]:
4 Who makes his angels [mal’ak – His messenger in who He manifest His presence] spirits; his ministers a flaming fire [see Hebrews 1:7 below – where this verse is quoted]:
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed forever.
6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
7 At your rebuke they fled; at the voice of your thunder they hasted away.
8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which you have founded for them.
9 You have set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
10 He sends the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
13 He waters the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your works.
14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthens man’s heart.
16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted;
17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows his going down.
20 You make darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
22 The sun arises, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
23 Man goes forth unto his work and to his labor until the evening.
24 O LORD, how manifold are your works! in wisdom have you made them all: the earth is full of your riches.
25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom you have made to play therein.
27 These wait all upon you; that you mayest give them their meat in due season.
28 That you give them they gather: you open your hand, they are filled with good.
29 You hide your face, they are troubled: you take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
30 You send forth your spirit, they are created: and you renew the face of the earth [with your Sun rise].
31 The glory of the LORD shall endure forever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
32 He looks on the earth, and it trembles: he touches the hills, and they smoke.
33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless you the LORD, O my soul. Praise you the LORD.

Hebrews 1
1 God, who at sundry times and in diverse manners [in many seeming unconnected parts] spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he has appointed heir of all things [to bring these parts in one message of Salvation], by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness [understanding] of his glory, and the express image of his person [manifested in me], and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
4 Being made so much better than the angels [also a king, teacher, priest, and a man of war, and much more], as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, You are my Son, this day have I begotten you? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6 And again, when he brings in the first-begotten into the world, he says, And let all the angels [messengers] of God worship him.
7 And of the angels he says, Who makes his angels [mal’ak – His messengers in who He manifests His presence] spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 But unto the Son he says, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
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 remains; 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 [as in verse 7 above, messengers in who He manifests His presence], 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 [those sent with messages they may not have fully understood] 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?

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 [from the place of full understanding]:
26 Whose voice then shook [saleuo] the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake [seio] not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken [saleuo], as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken [saleuo] 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 13
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
6 So that we may boldly say, The LORD is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
9 Be not carried about with [the winds of] divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

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 [the lies that is the COVID HOAX].
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 irrational fear that comes with ignorance]; nor for the arrow that flies by day [the false accusations that come against the truth];
6 Nor for the pestilence [the COVID HOAX] that walketh in darkness [that only continues because of ignorance]; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.
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 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.
11 For he shall give his angels [mal’ak – the messenger He sends, in who He manifests His presence at His will] charge [tsavah] over you, to keep you in all your ways [derek].
12 They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone [and stumble in the way].
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.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation

Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!

Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!

The tears above are the LORD’s expressing sorrow over His people choosing destruction rather than turning to Him with the fruit described (in Matthew 21) in the previous posts. The result is described in answer to its (the previous post’s) title verse (40), which asked what the (evil misleading) husbandmen think the LORD will do to them when He comes.

Matthew 21
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

As we saw, the stone is of the “corner” (gonia – pinnah), the LORD leading in a different direction, a new nation. We saw Him, quoting from Psalms 118:22, speaking of Himself as “the stone which the builders rejected,” the same that “is become the head of the corner.” In the same quote, He tells of this occurring by His doing a marvelous work in opening our eyes, which we know speaks of understanding that miraculously flows directly from God the Father.

Mathew 21
40 When the LORD therefore of the vineyard comes, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42 Jesus saith unto them, Did you never read in the scriptures, “The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the LORD’s doing, and it is marvelous in [opening] our eyes?”

The verses before and after the quote, in Psalms 118, tell of the LORD entering the gates of righteousness (in the new heaven and earth), when His people say “Blessed is He that comes in the name of the LORD.” His tears above are in response to the choice He knew they (His nation) would make, repeating their (the national institution, the powers in church and state) mistake, and rejecting Him again.

They should hear the word of the LORD, which He again speaks against them in warning:

Matthew 23
31 Wherefore you be witnesses unto yourselves, that you are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill you up then the measure of your fathers.
33 You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?
34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias [those who Jehovah remembers, born again by His second blessing], whom [those spoken of in the previous verse] you slew between the temple and the altar.
36 Truly I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings [to protect and teach], and you would not!
38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate [because you reject this protection and teaching].
39 For I say unto you, You shall not see [not understand, because of your rejection] me henceforth, till you shall say, “Blessed is he that comes in the name of the LORD.”

The title verse, Jeremiah 9:1, refers to the rejection recounted (reported) in ending the previous chapter. It (the chapter)(Jeremiah 8) begins by telling of the misleaders throughout eternity, gathered here from their grave where they were kept in chains of their own ignorance and blindness. It says their “bones” are spread before the churches (sun) and civil governments (moon), who they’ve served and worshipped. These are misleaders and false prophets, in verse 3, said to be from the “evil family,” who will remain in the place the LORD has driven them, which is death they’ve chosen over life.

Hear the word of the LORD:

Jeremiah 8
1 At that time, saith 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, out of their graves:
2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, 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 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, saith the LORD of hosts.
4 Moreover you shall say unto them, Thus saith 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.
7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knows her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not 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 deals 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 [and put them in My place]? 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, saith the LORD.
13 I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree [Matthew 21: 19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on you henceforward forever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, How soon is the fig tree [nation] withered away! Revelation 6:13 And the {the children of God} stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken {seio} of a mighty wind {of false doctrine}. These are raised up again when the foundation is again laid, in the new kingdom, as “When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” Job 38:7}], 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 defensed cities [under the LORD’s wing], 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 [because you refuse this balm], and behold trouble!
16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan [where judgment is perverted, by the calves they have put in My place]: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land [by claiming peace while they war against us], and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.
17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices [whose deadly venom is the deception in their mouths], among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith 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: 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.
22 Is there no balm in Gilead [is there no healing in this word of God]; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

As the LORD asks, through Jeremiah, above in verse 14, “Why do we sit still?” He then calls us to assemble,” into ONE BODY into the war now waged against us.

The word rendered “assemble” is the Hebrew word ‘acaph, meaning “to gather for any purpose; hence, to receive, take away, i.e. [gather to] remove (destroy, leave behind, put up, restore, etc.).” It is the word used in Isaiah 11:12, which we saw in the previous post, where then the LORD says to “assemble” the outcasts, who he also speaks of in Matthew 21.

Matthew 21
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

Isaiah 11
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for [a sign of the end] an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles [those who haven’t know Me shall diligently] seek: and his rest [and refreshing] shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria [from the hold of the communists], and from Egypt [from the hold of the oppressors], and from Pathros [pithron – from the hold of their false interpretations], and from Cush [from the darkness of their own ignorance], and from Elam [from all eternity], and from Shinar [where they have slept], and from Hamath [when I bring down the wall of lies], and from the islands of the sea [and those, throughout eternity, who haven’t heard My word, shall hear it].
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together [into ONE BODY] the dispersed of Judah [My Elect, the leaders of My people, first] from the four corners of the earth.
13 The envy also of Ephraim [all God’s people at large, upon who this second blessing has come] shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines [to remove the burden brought by the enemies and their strange ways mixed among us] toward the west [they shall go into darkness, leave by their own ignorance]; they shall [leave their] spoil them of the east together [to those who gather into this ONE BODY at the sun rise of the new heaven and earth]: they shall lay their hand upon Edom [the enemies mixed among us] and Moab [whose open mouths are the gates of hell holding us down]; and the children of Ammon [those divided into many fallen away churches] shall obey them [the word of My enlightened people].
15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea [the words holding all humanity into tyranny and oppression]; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river [their means of delivering their lies to the world], and shall smite it in the seven streams [with this word that flows God’s truth], and make men go over dryshod [pass over into life by no longer listening to the words that carried all into death].
16 And there shall be a highway [the LORD’s way] for the [elect] remnant of his people, which shall be left [uncorrupted], from Assyria [by the communists]; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt [by God’s word flowing from His prophet – Moses, who He drew from the corrupt waters of the oppressors].

Deuteronomy 18
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto you [Moses], and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
21 And if you say in your heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?
22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken, but the prophet has spoken it presumptuously: you shall not be afraid of him.

When Jeremiah tells of our assembling, into ONE BODY, he says it’s entering the “defensed” city, “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.”

The word “gall,” from the twelve times used ro’sh, refers to the two other times the word appears in Jeremiah, in Jeremiah 9:15 & 23:15.

Friends, the defensed city is the LORD, here manifested in me, the body He has prepared for Himself. The gathering is away from the old kingdom, corrupted by false prophets and other misleaders, the prominent and respected men of our time, who love to be praised by the enemies mixed among us at war destroying us. He is calling His ONE BODY to join Him, led by me as I follow Him into victory over death and hell. AMEN!

The word “defense” is the Hebrew word mibstar, meaning “a fortification, castle, or fortified city; figuratively, a defender.” It is referring us to its use in Jeremiah 1:18.

Jeremiah 1
4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Before I formed you in the belly [of hell] I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb [from the gates of hell] I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations.
6 Then said I, Ah, LORD God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child [I am unlearned].
7 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child [I am unlearned]: for you shall go to all that I shall send you, and whatsoever I command you you shall speak.
8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with you to deliver you, saith the LORD.
9 Then the LORD put forth his hand [His work, His word effectually working in me], and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.
10 See, I have this day set you [My son Timothy] over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah {Jehovah rising in me, to raise His people with His rising], what sees you? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree [from where the first fruits come, I am].
12 Then said the LORD unto me, You have well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
13 And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, What sees you? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north [ignorance and darkness that covers all the earth, causing it to become as a seething pot].
14 Then the LORD said unto me, Out of the north [out of its ignorance] an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
15 For, lo, I will call all the [evil] families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the LORD; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem [keeping all out and in hell], and against all the walls [the defense] thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah [of My elect remnant].
16 And I will utter my judgments against them [the evil family] touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.
17 You therefore gird up your loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command you: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound you before them.
18 For, behold, I have made you this day a defensed [mibtsar] city, and an iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.
19 And they shall fight against you; but they shall not prevail against you; for I am with you, saith the LORD, to deliver you.

Jeremiah 8
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 [my One BODY is in ignorance]; astonishment has taken hold on me [on My ONE BODY].
22 Is there no balm in Gilead [is there no healing in this word of God]; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

Jeremiah 9
1 Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!
2 Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.
3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.
4 Take you heed every one of his neighbor, and trust you not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will walk with slanders.
5 And they will deceive every one his neighbor, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
6 Your habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
7 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people?
8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaks deceit: one speaks peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he lays his wait.
9 Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
10 For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled; they are gone.
11 And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.
12 Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD has spoken, that he may declare it, for what the land perishes and is burned up like a wilderness, that none pass through?
13 And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;
14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim [the worthless idols of the world], which their fathers taught them:
15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall [ro’sh] to drink.
16 I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.
17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider you, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come:
18 And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.
19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out.
20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O you women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbor lamentation.
21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.
22 Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcasses of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none shall gather them.
23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD which exercises lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
25 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;
26 Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that are in the utmost corners, that dwell in the wilderness: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.

Jeremiah 23
1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
2 Therefore thus saith 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 them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith 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, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.
5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, 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: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The LORD Our Righteousness.
7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD live, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
8 But, The LORD live, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.
9 Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, 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 mourneth; 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, saith the LORD.
12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.
13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, 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 saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall [ro’sh]: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
16 Thus saith 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 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.
20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days you shall consider it perfectly.
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 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, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?
24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith 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.
28 The prophet that has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbor.
31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith 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, saith the LORD.
34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD [saying this word is a burden, when it is their words that are the burden], I will even punish that man and his house. [Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light with darkness?]
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 the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts 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 saith 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.

Friends, there is a trait, an axiom, common among conmen: the HOAXers of our time in church and state. It says, no matter what, “never give up the con.” In other words, even when caught, they will never admit the truth and instead will attempt to make you believe you don’t really see what you’ve discovered. This is called gaslighting.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of gaslighting: psychological manipulation of a person usually over an extended period of time that causes the victim to question the validity of their own thoughts, perception of reality, or memories and typically leads to confusion, loss of confidence and self-esteem, uncertainty of one’s emotional or mental stability, and a dependency on the perpetrator.

So, expect the con to continue, no matter what truth is known. COVID is a HOAX, just as much as is the rapture. They both exemplify perversions of small bits of reality, each relying on irrational fear produced by false prophets and gaslighting any who see through the delusion.

Stop listening to those at war against you! They are known liars telling known lies, false accusers falsely accusing the truth and those telling it.

2 Thessalonians 2
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets [katecho – holds us down] will let, until he be taken out of the way [mesos – out of our midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [understanding] of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan [resisting and opposing the LORD at His appearing and kingdom] with all power and signs and lying wonders [leading all away from the truth],
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the LORD, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 66
4 I also will choose their delusions [the conmen’s own ways returned upon them, chaining them to their own delusions], and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil [misleading] 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 [again – the outcasts] 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 recompence 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? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith your God.
10 Rejoice you with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all you that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you that mourn for her:
11 That you may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that you may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.
12 For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall you suck, you shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.
13 As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you [I will lead you into all truth]; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
14 And when you see [understand] 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, 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.

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.

Psalms 118
12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
13 You have thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.
16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
18 The LORD has chastened me sore: but he has not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
21 I will praise you: for you have heard me, and are become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner [pinnah – gonia].
23 This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in [opening] our eyes [and healing us].
24 This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now [Hosanna], I beseech you, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech you, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that comes in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

Psalms 11
1 In the LORD put I my trust: how say you to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4 The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5 The LORD tries the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hates.
6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
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.

When the LORD therefore of the vineyard comes, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

When the LORD therefore of the vineyard comes, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

The above is the LORD, in a parable, speaking to the religious leaders (the chief priests and Pharisees He calls husbandmen), who killed the son and cast him out of the vineyard. In a further definition of the true meaning, he says they are those (the builders) who reject the stone who’s become the head of the corner. The “corner” tells of the LORD taking His people (the vineyard and kingdom) in a different direction, which He describes as a new nation (of outcasts) bringing forth the fruit thereof.

Matthew 21
10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.
14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna [save now] to the son of David; they were sore displeased,
16 And said unto him, Hear you what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have perfected praise?
17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany [the house of misery]; and he lodged there.
18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on you henceforward forever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, How soon is the fig tree [nation] withered away! [Revelation 6:13 And the {the children of God} stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken {seio} of a mighty wind {of false doctrine}. These are raised up again when the foundation is again laid, in the new kingdom, as “When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” Job 38:7]
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Truly I say unto you, If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if you shall say unto this mountain [the corrupt government that now loom over the earth as the shadow of death], Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.
23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority do you these things? and who gave you this authority?
24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.
25 The baptism of John, from where was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did you not then believe him [and repent]?
26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
28 But what think you? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work today in my vineyard.
29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he REPENTED, and went.
30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Truly I say unto you, That the [re]publicans and the harlots [who left God to follow other men] go into the kingdom of God before you.
32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and you believed him not: but the [re]publicans and the harlots [who left God to follow other men] believed him: and you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that you might believe him.
33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard [created a nation], and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen [leaders in church and state], and went into a far country:
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When the LORD therefore of the vineyard comes, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42 Jesus saith unto them, Did you never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the LORD’s doing, and it is marvelous in [opening] our eyes?
43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spoke of them.
46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

In the above passage, speaking of the “corner,” the Greek word gonia, turning the kingdom (nation) in another direction, is the more profound topic underlying the chapter. The phrase is quoted from Psalms 118:22, which is preceded (in verse 19) by speaking of entering the new kingdom, through the gates of righteousness. In verse 18, we’re told it comes after the LORD has chastened His people, not giving us over to death (which is, without His correction, the direction we’re headed).

As we know, this chastening is that spoken of in Hebrews 12, by which the Father makes us His children. The chapter later says this comes by the voice heard shaking heaven and earth, so the wicked are from it shaken. The corner spoken of, in Psalms 118:22, from the Hebrew word pinnah, is the same described in Isaiah 28:16. In the latter, we’re told of the foundation stone, who is teaching doctrine, precept upon precept, line upon line, which is the rest, and the refreshing the drunken powers of Ephraim refuses to hear. It’s the same “corner” stone of the earth the LORD speaks of in Job 38:6, asking where we were when He laid it.

The word rendered “moved” in Matthew 21:10 above, speaking of the city shaken when He enters, is the five time used Greek word seio, meaning “to rock (vibrate, properly, sideways or to and fro), i.e. (generally) to agitate (in any direction; cause to tremble); figuratively, to throw into a tremor (of fear or concern):–move, quake, shake.”

When the LORD, in verse 16 above, speaks of the praise perfected in the mouth of babes and sucklings, He is quoting from Psalms 8:2; the following verse (3) saying this is to “still” the enemies (who are causing the agitation).

All of these passages are meant to be understood as one message characterizing the LORD’s actions and words in Matthew 21, specifically about the new nation and why the old ended (in the new heaven and earth, wherein dwells righteousness).

Psalms 118
1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endures forever.
2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endures forever.
3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endures forever.
4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endures forever.
5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.
6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.
11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
13 You have thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.
16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
18 The LORD has chastened me sore: but he has not given me over unto death.
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
21 I will praise you: for you have heard me, and are become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner [pinnah – gonia].
23 This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in [opening] our eyes [and healing us].
24 This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now [Hosanna], I beseech you, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech you, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that comes in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
27 God is the LORD, which has shown us light [given us understanding]: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar [the sacrifice is the power that brings sight and healing, the perfecting that is Jehovah’s Salvation – the identity {name} of Jesus in us].
28 You are my God, and I will praise you: you are my God, I will exalt you.
29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endures forever.

Acts 4
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost [the LORD unknown in him], said unto them, You rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him does this man stand here before you whole.
11 This is the stone which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the head of the corner [gonia].
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus [who taught and gave them understanding, by which they could give sight and heal others].
14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.
15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,
16 Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle has been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.
17 But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.
18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge you.
20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
21 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.
22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shown.
23 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.
24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, LORD, you are God, which have made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:
25 Who by the mouth of your servant David have said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?
26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the LORD, and against his Christ.
27 For of a truth against your holy child Jesus, whom you have anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
28 For to do whatsoever your hand and your counsel determined before to be done.
29 And now, LORD, behold their threatening: and grant unto your servants, that with all boldness they may speak your word,
30 By stretching forth your hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of your holy child Jesus.
31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken [saleuo] where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spoke the word of God with boldness [one voice speaking one common message, teaching, correcting, and healing, which is the rest and the refreshing].

Isaiah 28
5 In that day shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people,
6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.
7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine [shmuw’ah – the report]? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts [who now draw from the Ancient of Days].
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue [a report that isn’t understood by the ignorant] will he speak to this people.
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, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [pinnah] stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste.
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 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 [shmuw’ah – the sound doctrine and rumor it is the LORD’s presence].

Hebrews 12
11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the LORD:
15 Looking [seeking Him] diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau [an enemy among us], who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
17 For you know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears [crying LORD, LORD].

22 But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23 To the general assembly 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 [from the place of full understanding]:
26 Whose voice then shook [saleuo] the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake [seio] not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken [saleuo], as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken [saleuo] 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.

When the above speaks of the kingdom which cannot be “moved,” it’s from the twice used Greek word asaleuto, the opposite of saleuo. The other time it appears, in Acts 27:41, it is telling of the forepart of the ship (proro), which remained unmovable, as the rest of the ship was ripped from it by the storm.

As often discussed, the story is an allegory wherein the ship represents the church as an institution. Its depth speaks of what was discussed in the previous post regarding the word prosecho: holding into the future things we know now (then). Here, in context, it tells of only the things learned in the early church, remaining into the new heaven and earth, and all else is stripped away.

What is removed is the working of Satan, which we know from 2 Thessalonians 2:7, is the mystery of iniquity that was already at work. The verse tells us it (this same iniquity of those putting themselves in God place, saying “He said” when He never said it) holds God’s people down (katecho), keeping them from rising to meet (see – understand) Him, and will do so until taken out of the WAY (mesos – removed from our midst).

2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming [parousia – presence] of our LORD Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together [into ONE BODY] unto him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [an apostasy – a standing away from the truth – see atopos in 2 Thessalonians 3:2 below] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [in the pattern of Rueben, who went up into his father’s place, and will not remain];
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits [preaching and teaching] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now you know what withholds [katecho – holds down] that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets [katecho – holds down] will let, until he be taken out of the way [mesos – out of your midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked [see 2 Thessalonians 3:2 below] be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [giving understanding] of his coming [parousia – presence]:
9 Even him [the LORD in me], whose coming [parousia – presence] is after the working [after the deception has misled all into apostasy] of Satan [those sitting in God’s place resisting Him at His coming] with all power and signs and lying wonders [misleading all],
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [the HOAX that now rules the world], that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the LORD, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast [don’t fall away], and hold [into the future] the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16 Now our LORD Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
17 Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.

2 Thessalonians 3
1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the LORD may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you [received as the word of God, as it is]:
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable [atopos – “out of place” – fallen away] and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
3 But the LORD is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.
4 And we have confidence in the LORD touching you, that you both do and will do the things which we command you.

In the following, the LORD speaks of this moment, when all additons (leaven of those who’ve come after the LORD and His apostles) must be REMOVED. In this one-act, the church is refreshed, and the ONE BODY rises to life from the dead.

Will you answer His call into His kingdom by following His command?

Again: Isaiah 28
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine [shmuw’ah – the report]? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts [who now draw from the Ancient of Days].
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue [a report that isn’t understood by the ignorant] will he speak to this people.
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.

Here is what the LORD says will happen, knowing your response before you give it.

Amos 8
Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.
3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the LORD God: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.
4 Hear this, O you that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,
5 Saying, [speaking of their wanting to know when they can get back to the same old corruption] When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?
6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?
7 The LORD has sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works [the wroking of Satan].
8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD God, that I will cause the sun [the church as a corrupt institution] to go down at noon, and I will darken [and in it there shall be seen no understanding] the earth in the clear day:
10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
11 Behold, the days come [the days came], saith the LORD God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD [as is the state of all the churches]:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea [from generation to generation], and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men [all God’s people] faint for thirst [be without strength without this word of God].
14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria [idols put in God’s place and called by His name], and say, Your god, O Dan [where judgment is defiled by the calves put in God’s place], liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth [where the wells of living waters are defiled by the same idols]; even they shall fall, and never rise up again. [AMEN!]

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 [so the wicked are shaken from His house]: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth 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, 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 I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.
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, and has founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters 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 unto me [covered in darkness, in your own ignorance], O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt [from your oppressors]? and the Philistines from Caphtor [from the invading army that now rules over you], and the Syrians from Kir [those who are exalted by their wall of lies upon lies]?
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, saith the LORD.
9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations [when I gather them into ONE BODY], like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
10 All the sinners [the misleaders] of my people shall die by the sword, which say, “The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us [from continuing our evil misleading].”
11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen [I am the king He has raised from the dead], and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old [ONE Kingdom under One King]:
12 That [by this] they may possess the remnant of Edom [the enemies mixed among us], and of all the heathen [who don’t know God, and refuse His correction], which are called by my name [who say they know me, calling Me LORD, LORD, but do not what I say], says the LORD that does this.
13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper [shall plow under those who are gather My people to themselves and away from Me], and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed [My wrath against those who are sewing corrupt seed in My world]; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine [from the high places shall come correction that returns strength], and all the hills shall melt [and the corrupt high places shall not remain].
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, saith the LORD your God. [AMEN!]

Isaiah 11
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for [a sign of the end] an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles [those who haven’t know Me shall diligently] seek: and his rest [and refreshing] shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria [from the hold of the communists], and from Egypt [from the hold of the oppressors], and from Pathros [pithron – from the hold of their false interpretations], and from Cush [from the darkness of their own ignorance], and from Elam [from all eternity], and from Shinar [where they have slept], and from Hamath [when I bring down the wall of lies], and from the islands of the sea [and those, throughout eternity, who haven’t heard My word, shall hear it].
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together [into ONE BODY] the dispersed of Judah [My Elect, the leaders of My people, first] from the four corners of the earth.
13 The envy also of Ephraim [all God’s people at large, upon who this second blessing has come] shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines [to remove the burden brough by the enemies and their strange ways mixed among us] toward the west [they shall go into darkness, leave by their own ignorance]; they shall [leave their] spoil them of the east together [to those who gather into this ONE Boday at the sun rise of the new heaven and earth]: they shall lay their hand upon Edom [the enemies mixed among us] and Moab [whose open mouths are the gates of hell holding us down]; and the children of Ammon [those divided into many fallen away churches] shall obey them [the word of My enlightened people].
15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea [the words holding all humanity into tyranny and oppression]; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river [their means of delivering their lies to the world], and shall smite it in the seven streams [with this word that flows God’s truth], and make men go over dryshod [pass over into life by no longer listening to the words that carried all into death].
16 And there shall be a highway [the LORD’s way] for the [elect] remnant of his people, which shall be left [uncorrupted], from Assyria [by the communists]; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt [by God’s word flowing from His prophet – Moses, who He drew from the corrupt waters of the oppressors].

Deuteronomy 18
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
21 And if you say in your heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?
22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken, but the prophet has spoken it presumptuously: you shall not be afraid of him.

Psalms 125
1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even forever.
3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest [remain] upon the lot of the righteous; lest [so that] the righteous [don’t] put forth their hands unto iniquity.
4 Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity [into perdition]: but peace shall be upon Israel [who trusts in the LORD].

Psalms 8
1 O LORD, our LORD, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who has 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 [quiet the voice of] 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 art mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit him?
5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and hast 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!

O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times?

O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times?

In the above question, from Matthew 16:3, the LORD is speaking to the religious leaders of the time, whose leaven (corruption of the written and oral, living, work and word of God) he warns His disciples to “beware.” The chapter is filled with allegories, the patterns living below the surface (of the written word) waiting to be revealed by the same living work and word of God.

These aspects, personified in and pronounced by the LORD in this chapter, directly contradict the beliefs (the stoicheion – foundational elements of belief) of the Pharisees and Sadducees to whom He speaks.

The names of these sects (denominations resembling today’s many thousands: zealots and their more conventional sleeping counterparts, Christians and Jews in practice or name only) mean (Pharisees) separatists and (Sadducees) righteous.

Here are the definitions of each from Thayer’s Greek Lexicon:

Pharisaios
1) A sect that seems to have started after the Jewish exile. In addition to OT books the Pharisees recognized in oral tradition a standard of belief and life. They sought for distinction and praise by outward observance of external rites and by outward forms of piety, and such as ceremonial washings, fasting, prayers, and alms giving; and, comparatively negligent of genuine piety, they prided themselves on their fancied good works. They held strenuously to a belief in the existence of good and evil angels, and to the expectation of a Messiah; and they cherished the hope that the dead, after a preliminary experience either of reward or of penalty in Hades, would be recalled to life by him, and be requited each according to his individual deeds. In opposition to the usurped dominion of the Herods and the rule of the Romans, they stoutly upheld the theocracy and their country’ s cause, and possessed great influence with the common people. According to Josephus they numbered more than 6000. They were bitter enemies of Jesus and his cause; and were in turn severely rebuked by him for their avarice, ambition, hollow reliance on outward works, and affection of piety in order to gain popularity.

Saddoukaios
Sadducees = “the righteous”
1) a religious party at the time of Christ among the Jews, who denied that the oral law was a revelation of God to the Israelites, and who deemed the written law alone to be obligatory on the nation, as the divine authority. They denied the following doctrines:
1a) resurrection of the body
1b) immortality of the soul
1c) existence of spirits and angels
1d) divine predestination, affirmed free will

I Am, Christ in me (us) is, God contradicting, in Spirit and Truth, the works of the Pharisees and the denials of the Sadducees.

Friends, you who do know the season, these messages are the Father speaking to us: leading us out of this dark time of ignorance into His marvelous (eye-opening) light. Read them as such, as “the signs of the time,” the call to repentance from dead works (exodos) and into His promised perfection (eisodos).

Matthew 16
1 The Pharisees [those who’ve divided God’s people into many, scattered and conquered, sects] also with the Sadducees [the self-righteous, who reject the righteousness of God] came, and tempting desired him that he would show them a sign from heaven [Isaiah 8:18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion].
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah [as the son of man, with the children the LORD in Him gives him, condemn this evil generation: calling it to repentance from dead works]. And he left them, and departed.
5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.
8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O you of little faith, why reason you among yourselves, because you have brought no bread?
9 Do you not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves [this word of God rightly divided] of the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
11 How is it that you do not understand that I spoke it not to you concerning bread, that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that you are John the Baptist: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say you that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona [son of Jonah – who has come out of the belly of hell, realizing it’s Jehovah’s Salvation, the Father revealed revealing the son]: for flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you, but my Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock [the confession of the Father revealed in the son, from who His word flows] I will build my church; and the gates [holding God’s people in the belly] of hell [as it held Jonah] shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
21 From that time forth began Jesus to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again [from the belly of hell] the third day.
22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from you, LORD: this shall not be unto you.
23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get you behind me, Satan [resisting the cleansing that comes through the sacrifice necessary to bring the word against the resistance]: you are an offense unto me: for you savor not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
28 Truly I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

Isaiah 8
8 And he [the communists now among us in seats of power] shall pass through Judah [the leaders of God’s people]; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck [shall corrupt the whole body]; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of your land, 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, 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 the destruction] of this people, saying,
12 Say you not, A confederacy [of the ignorant and corrupt], to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear you their fear, nor be afraid [of their lies and HOAXs].
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 offense 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 the testimony [this word of God], seal the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hides his face [presence] from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits [of the known dead, whose ways we know bring destruction and death], and unto wizards [manipulators] that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? [Should they be looking] for the living to 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 shall pass through it, hardly bestead [hardened against God’s work] 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.
22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness [tribulation in ignorance], dimness of anguish [unable to see and in misery]; and they shall be driven to darkness [to suffer from the forced mass delusion of their oppressors: the COVID HOAX and those using it to impose communist type tyranny].

Jonah 2
1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly [the underlying agitation disturbing humanity, the all-consuming mouths of misleaders],
2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and you heard my voice.
3 For you had cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods [from the mouth of the wicked misleaders] compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me [the tribulation, waves of evil, that comes when the wicked rise to power].
4 Then I said, I am cast out of your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.
5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me forever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.
7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto you, into your holy temple.
8 They that observe lying vanities [the worthless advice of misleaders who are intentionally destroying us] forsake their own mercy.
9 But I will sacrifice unto you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that [the price to speak the word God has given us] that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.
10 And the LORD spoke unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

Jonah 3
1 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying,
2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid you.

Jeremiah 51
29 And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon [the confusion that rules over the world], to make the land of Babylon [confusion] a desolation without an inhabitant.
30 The mighty men of Babylon have forborne to fight, they have remained in their holds: their might has failed; they became as women: they have burned her dwelling-places; her bars 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 at one end [as was Nineveh, when Jonah began to pass through, as will this nation be as my people begin to condemn it as Jonah condemned Nineveh],
32 And that the passages [their ways] are stopped, and the reeds they have burned with fire, and the men of war are affrighted.
33 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.
34 Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon [the lies of the false prophets in church and state, the confusion ruling the world, causing the desolation of God’s people] has devoured me, he has crushed me, he has made me an empty vessel, he has swallowed me up [as the whale swallowed Jonah] like a dragon, he has filled his belly with my delicates, he has cast me out.
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 misleading words, as spells, to manipulate and control all who listen and follow them into destruction], shall Jerusalem say.
36 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will [by My Spirit, with truth] plead your cause, and take vengeance for you; and I will dry up her sea [by cutting off the misleading words flowing to her], and make her springs dry.
37 And Babylon shall become heaps, a dwelling-place for dragons [those who mouths, as the whale’s, devour men and nations], an astonishment [ignorant and confused], and a hissing [and will draw attention to her destructive ways], without an inhabitant.
38 They shall roar together like lions: they shall yell as lions’ whelps.
39 In their heat I will make their feasts, and I will make them drunken, that they may rejoice, and sleep a perpetual sleep [and not understanding when I do this], and not wake, saith the LORD.
40 I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams with he goats.
41 How is Sheshach taken [this name only appears here and in Jeremiah 25:26, where the “how” is spoken of – see below]! and how is the praise of the whole earth surprised! how is Babylon become an astonishment among the nations!
42 The sea [the people awakened by Jonah calls to repentance] is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof.
43 Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither does any son of man pass thereby.
44 And I will punish Bel in Babylon [the idols of confusion, the lies in which the misleader trust], and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he has [as a whale] swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall [lie upon lie, which they believe protects them] of Babylon shall fall.
45 My people, go you out of the midst of her [awaken out of the land of ignornnace], 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 – the report that LORD has risen with and in us] that shall be heard in the land; a rumor [shmuw’ah – the report that the LORD has revealed His arm, His working in His sound doctrine to those who’ve received Him] shall both come one year, and after that in another year shall come a rumor [shmuw’ah – that Satan is cast down, and knowing His time is short, has cast out of His mouth a flood to swallow God’s people], and violence in the land, ruler against ruler [the LORD’s king against all the kings of darkness].
47 Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will do judgment upon the graven images [the everchanging lies] of Babylon: and her whole land shall be confounded [they will not reach the end they seek], and all her slain shall fall in the midst of her.
48 Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north [from the place where the LORD has hidden them, awaked out of the land of ignorance], saith the LORD.
49 As Babylon has caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth.
50 You that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still: remember the LORD afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.
51 We are confounded, because we have heard reproach: shame has covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD’s house.
52 Wherefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will do judgment upon her graven images: and through all her land the wounded shall groan.
53 Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the LORD.
54 A sound of a cry comes from Babylon, and great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans:
55 Because the LORD has spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice [deceiving and destroying the earth]; 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, and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken: for the LORD God of recompenses shall surely requite.

Jeremiah 26
26 And all the kings of the north [kings of 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 [shayith sek – kings of thorns and briers – see Isaiah 5:6 & Numbers 33:55] shall drink after them.
27 Therefore you shall say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Drink you, and be drunken, and spue, 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 saith 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, saith 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, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 A noise shall come even to the ends 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, saith the LORD.
32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind [from where the LORD speaks] shall be raised up from the coasts [ends – end of the old and the new beginning] of the earth.
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 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 Greek word the LORD uses, in Matthew 16:6, 11, & 12, telling us to “beware” of the corruption in what the religious tell us about God (who He is, His ways, and where to find Him), is prosecho, “from 4314 [pros- forward to] and 2192 [echo – to possess or hold on to]; (figuratively) to hold the mind (3563 [nous – intellect] implied) towards, i.e. pay attention to, be cautious about, apply oneself to, adhere to.”

It (prosecho) is telling us to hold into the future what we know now. The word refers us to what Paul writes to the Thessalonians, in 2 Thessalonians 2:6 & 7, as he uses the word katecho, when speaking of the mystery of iniquity already at work and when it’s (now) revealed.

As we’ve seen, he is speaking of those he calls (in 2 Thessalonians 3:2) “unreasonable and wicked men” who weren’t allowing a free course to the word of God. As we also know (1 Thessalonians 2:3), this is the word of God, which when received, effectually works in those receiving it as the word of God, as it is. After saying this, Paul again describes those hindering its course, as Satan, the wicked one, whose works, the destruction of truth by lying signs and wonders, (2 Thessalonians 2:9), the LORD comes after.

Paul, in 1 Thessalonians 2:19, askes those who’ve received his words as the word of God, not man’s, “Are not even you in the presence of our LORD Jesus Christ at His coming [parousia – presence].”

Speaking of this coming, Paul later says (2 Thessalonians 1:7) it’s when He’s revealsed from heaven with His mighty angels. He then says, in verses 9 & 10, He comes in flaming fire, taking vengeance on those who don’t know Him, and when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, who believe in that day.

The truth is what He comes with, against the deceptions of the wicked, lies now turned into mass delusion, the wickedness that was already at work, (letting and withholding – katecho) until it’s taken out of the WAY [mesos – their midst].

1 Thessalonians 2
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 also in you that believe.
14 For you, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for you also have suffered like things [troubles] of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:
15 Who both killed the LORD Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:
16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles [speak this word of God to those who know Him not – see 2 Thessalonians 1:8 below] that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.
17 But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavored the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.
18 Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.
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

2 Thessalonians 1
4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure:
5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer [of your own countrymen]:
6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the LORD Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ:
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the LORD, and from the glory of his power;
10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our [Paul’s, and now Timothy’s] testimony among you was believed [to be the word of God, as it is]) in that day.
11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
12 That the name of our LORD Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the LORD Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming [parousia – presence] of our LORD Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together [into ONE BODY] unto him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [an apostasy – a standing away from the truth – see atopos in 2 Thessalonians 3:2 below] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [in the pattern of Rueben, who when up into his father place, and will not remain];
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits [preaching and teaching] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now you know what withholds [katecho – holds down] that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets [katecho – holds down] will let, until he be taken out of the way [mesos – out of your midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked [see 2 Thessalonians 3:2 below] be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [giving understanding] of his coming [parousia – presence]:
9 Even him [the LORD in me], whose coming [parousia – presence] is after the working [after the deception has misled all into apostasy] of Satan [those sitting in God’s place resisting Him at His coming] with all power and signs and lying wonders [misleading all],
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [the HOAX that now rules the world], that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the LORD, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast [don’t fall away], and hold [into the future] the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16 Now our LORD Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
17 Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.

2 Thessalonians 3
1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the LORD may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you [received as the word of God, as it is]:
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable [atopos – “out of place” – fallen away] and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
3 But the LORD is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.
4 And we have confidence in the LORD touching you, that you both do and will do the things which we command you.

Matthew 7
13 Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns [misleaders], or figs of thistles [misleaders]?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many [false prophets, false teachers, and apostates] will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Hebrews 1
8 But unto the Son he saith, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
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 remain; 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 [the angels] 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 [the angels] 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?

Hebrews 6
1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
3 And this will we do, if God permit.
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
6 If they shall fall away [if they go again into apostasy], to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from God:
8 But that which bears [misleaders] thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

Hebrews 12
22 But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels [sent forth to minister to the heirs of salvation],
23 To the general assembly 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.

Hebrews 13
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
6 So that we may boldly say, The LORD is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
9 Be not carried about [into apostasy] with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

Psalms 104
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with honor and majesty.
2 Who covers yourself with light [understanding] as with a garment: who stretches out the heavens like a curtain:
3 Who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters: who makes the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
4 Who makes his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed forever.
6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
7 At your rebuke they fled; at the voice of your thunder they hasted away.
8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which you have founded for them.
9 You have set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
10 He sends the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
13 He waters the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your works.
14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthens man’s heart.
16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he has planted;
17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows his going down.
20 You make darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
22 The sun arises, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
23 Man goes forth unto his work and to his labor until the evening.
24 O LORD, how manifold are your works! in wisdom have you made them all: the earth is full of your riches.
25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom you have made to play therein.
27 These wait all upon you; that you mayest give them their meat in due season.
28 That you give them they gather: you open your hand, they are filled with good.
29 You hide your face [presence], they are troubled: you take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust [‘aphar].
30 You send forth your spirit, they are created: and you renew the face of [You renew Your presence on] the earth.
31 The glory of the LORD shall endure forever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
32 He looks on the earth, and it trembles: he touches the hills, and they smoke.
33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless you the LORD, O my soul. Praise you the LORD.

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

In the above, Proverbs 20:27, the LORD is speaking of the intellect of man, created by God and designed to search out (critically think, to discern) inner meanings, assessing underlying objectives in association with results.

The word rendered “spirit” is the twenty-four times used Hebrew word nshamah (neshamah), meaning “a puff, i.e. wind, angry or vital breath, divine inspiration, intellect. or (concretely) an animal:–blast, (that) breath(-eth), inspiration, soul, spirit.”

It (nshamah) is the word first used in Genesis 2:7, when we’re told God breathed the “breath” of life into Adam.

Genesis 2
7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath [nshamah] of life; and man became a living soul.

1 Corinthians 15
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the LORD from heaven.

Proverbs 20
18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
19 He that goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flatters with his lips.
20 Whoso curses his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.
21 An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed.
22 Say not you, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save you.
23 Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good.
24 Man’s goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way [without the mind {breath} of God, and His counsel]?
25 It is a snare to the man who devours that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry [as do the “build back better” crowd: destroyers who claim more of the same destruction will create utopia].
26 A wise king scatters the wicked, and brings the wheel over them.
27 The spirit [nshamah] of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
28 Mercy and truth preserve the king: and his throne is upheld by mercy.

When the above verse says man “became a living soul” it’s speaking of when man was given an intellect and thereby became self-aware, meaning all were God-given the ability to come to correct conclusions, only hinder by choice of information received (data, true or false). When given the truth (uncorrupted definition), most of humanity will come to correct conclusions. Therefore, the wicked, those now in power, alter reality in their description of it, censoring and redefining, even reversing good and evil, because their intentions are to normalize their evil deeds.

When full understanding comes, by correct and complete (uncorrupted) information given and received, man is quickened into his spiritually “self-aware” state, by which he puts on (accepts) his immortal nature (the image of the heavenly, understanding the spirit underlying the law, which is what it’s intended to accomplish).

THE WAY OF THE LORD is to constrain misinformation (which the world now falsely calls truth, knowing it’s not,) by the insertion of truth, by His breath (nshamah).

2 Samuel 22
6 The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;
7 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.
8 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth.
9 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
10 He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.
11 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.
12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.
13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled.
14 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered his voice.
15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.
16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast [nshamah] of the breath of his nostrils.
17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters [the words of men who intend to mislead];
18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.
19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
21 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands has he recompensed me.
22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
23 For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them.
24 I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity.
25 Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight.
26 With the merciful you will show yourself merciful, and with the upright man you will show yourself upright.
27 With the pure you will show yourself pure; and with the froward you will show yourself unsavory.
28 And the afflicted people you will save: but your eyes are upon the haughty, that you mayest bring them down.
29 For you are my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.
30 For by you I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
33 God is my strength and power: and he makes my way perfect.
34 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet: and sets me upon my high places.
35 He teaches my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
36 You have also given me the shield of your salvation: and your gentleness has made me great.
37 You have enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip.
38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.
39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.
40 For you have girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me have you subdued under me.
41 You have also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.

The “blast” of the LORD’s Spirit (breath – ruwach) is the inspiration of man (effectually working in them), giving understanding by which He moves (and empowers) them to do His work (will).

Job 32
6 And Elihu [he is God {speaking}] the son of Barachel [which is God’s blessing] the Buzite [against those He despises] answered and said, I am young, and you are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not show you mine opinion.
7 I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.
8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration [nshamah] of the Almighty gives them understanding.
9 Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.
10 Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will show mine opinion.

It (nshamah) is His quickening us into life, out of corruption, bringing it into our dead flesh.

Job 33
4 The spirit of God has made me, and the breath [nshamah] of the Almighty has given me life.
5 If you can answer me, set your words in order before me, stand up.
6 Behold, I am according to your wish in God’s stead: I also am formed out of the clay.
7 Behold, my terror shall not make you afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon you.
8 Surely you have spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of your words, saying,
9 I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.
10 Behold, he finds occasions against me, he counts me for his enemy,
11 He puts my feet in the stocks, he marks all my paths.
12 Behold, in this you are not just: I will answer you, that God is greater than man.
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.
18 He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:
20 So that his life abhors bread, and his soul dainty meat.
21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.
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 saith, 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 looks 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 deeper understanding of the nshamah bringing life, by the means described in Job 33:23, is added to in Genesis 2:7, saying it’s from the “dust” of the ground, and “breathed” from God. The word “dust” is the Hebrew word ‘aphar, and “breathed” is the word naphach. The “dust” of the world is what hides God’s word from man, covering His identity, and in this state, without form and void, the darkness covers deep understanding contained therein.

As we know, when we’re told of the condition the earth became (hayah), in Genesis 1:2, Moses uses the words tohuw (“without form”) and bohuw (“void”). These words only appear together two other times: once in Jeremiah 4:23 rendered the same, and the other in Isaiah 34:11 where they tell us “without form” is “confusion,” and the “void” is the resulting “emptiness.” These are the foundation and building of the world in which we now find ourselves.

The word ‘aphar (first letter ‘Aleph) is used by the LORD to lead us to the twice-used word ‘apher (first letter ‘Ayin). The latter word (‘apher), in the Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary, is given the number (of a man), 666. As previously discussed, it is the face covering (hiding) the prophets (true and false), covered in 1 Kings 20:30, and uncovered in 1 Kings 20:41. This “covering,” in Genesis 1:2, is the darkness (ignorance of the time, when confusion rules and all words are empty), which only ends when the light comes (understanding from heaven) and the true prophets are uncovered.

In 1 Kings 20, this covering and uncovering depict, in a pattern, the LORD smitten (in betrayal and on the cross) and resurrected, as the king sees (reference Zedikiah’s blinding ending the seated king line – see Jeremiah 52:10 & 11) again the prophet uncovered (in the light).

The chapter begins by telling of the king of Israel, Ahab, listening to God’s prophet, defeating the king of Syria and the kings with him who attacked them. After defeating them in a second attack, instead of destroying them as God said, they made peace with those who remained. In the treaty, the king of Syria promised to let Ahab make streets (ways – broadways that lead to destruction) in Damascus (when the work of God is silenced) as his father made in Samaria. This promise tells of his, Ahab’s, slaying the prophets and replacing God’s way with idols.

This (not listening and following God’s advice) is then depicted as the smiting the prophet, so the word of God would flow from the Rock in who we can trust. When they (God’s people), after not listening, and the resulting confusion and emptiness occur, do smite the prophet, it is betrayal, which results in the prophet’s face becoming hidden (masked) in confusion.

When the prophet’s face is finally uncovered, he tells the king of Israel, the cause of the entire situation was not listening to the LORD: not destroying the enemies and their corrupt ways as commanded.

For context defining this moment, the confusion of false prophets and following their ways are depicted in the face covering, #666 ‘apher, which the Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon says is a face bandage (mask).

Job 33
31 Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me: hold your peace, and I will speak.
32 If you have anything to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify you.
33 If not, hearken unto me: hold your peace, and I shall teach you wisdom [and bring you out of darkness into the light].

Revelation 13
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark [confusion], or the name of the beast [Babel – confused language], or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man [James Strong – in his Hebrew Dictionary]; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six [#666].

1 Kings 20
1 And Benhadad [the children of idols] the king of Syria gathered all his host together: and there were thirty and two kings with him, and horses, and chariots; and he went up and besieged Samaria, and warred against it.
2 And he sent messengers to Ahab king of Israel into the city, and said unto him, Thus saith Benhadad,
3 Your silver and your gold is mine; your wives also and your children, even the goodliest, are mine.
4 And the king of Israel answered and said, My lord, O king, according to your saying, I am yours, and all that I have.
5 And the messengers came again, and said, Thus speak Benhadad, saying, Although I have sent unto you, saying, You shall deliver me your silver, and your gold, and your wives, and your children;
6 Yet I will send my servants unto you tomorrow about this time, and they shall search your house, and the houses of your servants; and it shall be, that whatsoever is pleasant in your eyes, they shall put it in their hand, and take it away.
7 Then the king of Israel called all the elders of the land, and said, Mark, I pray you, and see how this man seeks mischief: for he sent unto me for my wives, and for my children, and for my silver, and for my gold; and I denied him not.
8 And all the elders and all the people said unto him, Hearken not unto him, nor consent.
9 Wherefore he said unto the messengers of Benhadad, Tell my lord the king, All that you did send for to your servant at the first I will do: but this thing I may not do. And the messengers departed, and brought him word again.
10 And Benhadad sent unto him, and said, The gods do so unto me, and more also, if the dust of Samaria shall suffice for handfuls for all the people that follow me.
11 And the king of Israel answered and said, Tell him, Let not him that girds on his harness boast himself as he that puts it off.
12 And it came to pass, when Ben-hadad heard this message, as he was drinking, he and the kings in the pavilions, that he said unto his servants, Set yourselves in array. And they set themselves in array against the city.
13 And, behold, there came a prophet unto Ahab king of Israel, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Have you seen all this great multitude? behold, I will deliver it into your hand this day; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
14 And Ahab said, By whom? And he said, Thus saith the LORD, Even by the young men of the princes of the provinces. Then he said, Who shall order the battle? And he answered, You.
15 Then he numbered the young men of the princes of the provinces, and they were two hundred and thirty two: and after them he numbered all the people, even all the children of Israel, being seven thousand.
16 And they went out at noon. But Benhadad was drinking himself drunk in the pavilions, he and the kings, the thirty and two kings that helped him.
17 And the young men of the princes of the provinces went out first; and Benhadad sent out, and they told him, saying, There are men come out of Samaria.
18 And he said, Whether they be come out for peace, take them alive; or whether they be come out for war, take them alive.
19 So these young men of the princes of the provinces came out of the city, and the army which followed them.
20 And they slew every one his man: and the Syrians fled; and Israel pursued them: and Benhadad the king of Syria escaped on an horse with the horsemen.
21 And the king of Israel went out, and smote the horses and chariots, and slew the Syrians with a great slaughter.
22 And the prophet came to the king of Israel, and said unto him, Go, strengthen yourself, and mark, and see what you do: for at the return of the year the king of Syria will come up against you.
23 And the servants of the king of Syria said unto him, Their gods are gods of the hills; therefore they were stronger than we; but let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they.
24 And do this thing, Take the kings away, every man out of his place, and put captains in their rooms:
25 And number you an army, like the army that you have lost, horse for horse, and chariot for chariot: and we will fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they. And he hearkened unto their voice, and did so.
26 And it came to pass at the return of the year, that Benhadad numbered the Syrians, and went up to Aphek [from #662, ‘aphaq, meaning abstaining {from hearing the prophets} which {covering the face of} is the stronghold of the enemy] to fight against Israel.
27 And the children of Israel were numbered, and were all present, and went against them: and the children of Israel pitched before them like two little flocks of kids; but the Syrians filled the country.
28 And there came a man of God, and spoke unto the king of Israel, and said, Thus saith the LORD, Because the Syrians have said, The LORD is God of the hills, but he is not God of the valleys, therefore will I deliver all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the LORD.
29 And they pitched one over against the other seven days. And so it was, that in the seventh day the battle was joined: and the children of Israel slew of the Syrians a hundred thousand footmen in one day.
30 But the rest fled to Aphek, into the city; and there a wall fell upon twenty and seven thousand of the men that were left. And Benhadad fled, and came into the city, into an inner chamber.
31 And his servants said unto him, Behold now, we have heard that the kings of the house of Israel are merciful kings: let us, I pray you, put sackcloth on our loins, and ropes upon our heads, and go out to the king of Israel: peradventure he will save your life.
32 So they girded sackcloth on their loins, and put ropes on their heads, and came to the king of Israel, and said, Your servant Benhadad saith, I pray you, let me live. And he said, Is he yet alive? he is my brother.
33 Now the men did diligently observe whether any thing would come from him, and did hastily catch it: and they said, Your brother Benhadad. Then he said, Go you, bring him. Then Benhadad came forth to him; and he caused him to come up into the chariot.
34 And Ben-hadad said unto him, The cities, which my father took from your father, I will restore; and you shall make streets for you in Damascus, as my father made in Samaria. Then said Ahab, I will send you away with this covenant. So he made a covenant with him, and sent him away.
35 And a certain man of the sons of the prophets said unto his neighbor in the word of the LORD, Smite me, I pray you. And the man refused to smite him.
36 Then said he unto him, Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, behold, as soon as you are departed from me, a lion shall slay you. And as soon as he was departed from him, a lion found him, and slew him.
37 Then he found another man, and said, Smite me, I pray you. And the man smote him, so that in smiting he wounded him.
38 So the prophet departed, and waited for the king by the way, and disguised himself with ashes [‘apher – #666, a mask] upon his face.
39 And as the king passed by, he cried unto the king: and he said, Your servant went out into the midst of the battle; and, behold, a man turned aside, and brought a man unto me, and said, Keep this man: if by any means he be missing, then shall your life be for his life, or else you shall pay a talent of silver.
40 And as your servant was busy here and there, he was gone. And the king of Israel said unto him, So shall your judgment be; yourself have decided it.
41 And he hasted, and took the ashes [‘apher – #666, a mask – “confusion of face”] away from his face; and the king of Israel discerned him that he was of the prophets.
42 And he said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Because you have let go out of your hand a man whom I appointed to utter destruction, therefore your life shall go for his life, and your people for his people.
43 And the king of Israel went to his house heavy and displeased, and came to Samaria.

Jeremiah 7
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 belongs mercies and forgiveness, 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.

Isaiah 54
1 Sing, O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
2 Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of your habitations: spare not, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes;
3 For you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and your seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
4 Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed: neither be you confounded; for you shall not be put to shame: for you shall forget the shame of your youth, and shall not remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.
5 For your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
6 For the LORD has called you as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when you wast refused, saith your God.
7 For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you.
8 In a little wrath I hid my face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on you, saith the LORD your Redeemer.
9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with you, nor rebuke you.
10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that has mercy on you.
11 O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with fair colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires.
12 And I will make your windows of agates, and your gates of carbuncles, and all your borders of pleasant stones.
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 for your sake.
16 Behold, I have created the smith that blows [naphach – to quicken you to life in] 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, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 57
1 The righteous perishes [leave the corrupt houses], and no man lays it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.
2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.
3 But draw near hither, you sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.
4 Against whom do you sport yourselves? against whom make you a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are you not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.
5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the cliffs of the rocks?
6 Among the smooth stones of the stream is your portion; they, they are your lot: even to them have you poured a drink offering, you have offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these?
7 Upon a lofty and high mountain have you set your bed: even thither went you up to offer sacrifice.
8 Behind the doors also and the posts have you set up your remembrance: for you have discovered yourself to another than me, and are gone up; you have enlarged your bed, and made you a covenant with them; you loved their bed where you saw it.
9 And you went to the [Syrian] king with ointment, and did increase your perfumes, and did send your messengers far off, and did debase yourself even unto hell.
10 You are wearied in the greatness of your way; yet said you not, There is no hope: you have found the life of your hand; therefore you were not grieved.
11 And of whom have you been afraid or feared, that you have lied, and have not remembered me, nor laid it to your heart? have not I held my peace even of old, and you fear me not?
12 I will declare your righteousness, and your works; for they shall not profit you.
13 When you cry, let your companies deliver you; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that puts his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;
14 And shall say, Cast you up, cast you up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling-block out of the way of my people.
15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
16 For I will not contend forever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls [nshamah – the life in those who’ve believed this report] which I have made.
17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on forwardly [twisting and perverting truth] in the way of his heart.
18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.
19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.
20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

Ezekiel 37
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise [qowl – the voice of God], and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the LORD God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon [naphach – to quicken to life] these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the LORD God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall you know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, you son of man, take you one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in your hand.
18 And when the children of your people shall speak unto you, saying, Will you not show us what you meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the LORD God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be ONE [BODY] in mine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon you write shall be in your hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus saith the LORD God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children forever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

Psalms 98
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he has done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, has gotten him the victory.
2 The LORD has made known his salvation: his righteousness has he openly shown in the sight of the heathen.
3 He has remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
9 Before the LORD; for he comes to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
