You drew near in the day that I called upon you: you said, “Fear not.” O LORD, you have pleaded the causes of my soul; you have redeemed my life.

You drew near in the day that I called upon you: you said, “Fear not.” O LORD, you have pleaded the causes of my soul; you have redeemed my life.

The above, Lamentations 3:57 & 58, is the LORD in Jeremiah describing His time in death and hell, as Jonah was in the whale’s belly, and how, from there, He resurrected. As we understand, Jeremiah’s name means Jehovah rising (ruwm), as in Jeremiah, and with His rising in him raising us to life (in us).

Both the Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and the Thayer’s Greek Lexicons define Jeremiah as meaning “whom Jehovah has appointed.” The purpose of the appointment is to be the body the LORD has prepared for Himself, as the hand of God lifted up against His enemies holding us (by their ever-open mouths) down in hell.

Friends, this is not an exercise or a show. The Biblical reality is there are multiple truths we must accept before we (God’s people) can and will comprehend this is THE foretold time, and I Am the One in whom He is first making His presence known, to raise us as His first fruits. This time is hell and all are dead, except the very elect who’ve received Him, as I’ve received Him and am alive. This ascension is into heaven joined with Him, in full understanding (in the firmament where the waters are divided: God’s word above from the words of devils remaining below in hell – in the earth remaining without form, and void, where darkness, ignorance, remains upon the face of the deep).

Isaiah 26
8 Yea, in the way of your judgments, O LORD, have we waited for you; the desire of our soul is to your name, and to the remembrance [zeker] of you.
9 With my soul have I desired you in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek you early: for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10 Let favor be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
11 LORD, when your hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of your enemies shall devour them.
12 LORD, you will ordain peace for us: for you also have wrought all our works in us.
13 O LORD our God, other lords beside you have had dominion [ba’al] over us: but by you only will we make mention [zakar – rememberance] of your name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have you visited [paqad] and destroyed them, and made all their memory [zeker] to perish.
15 You have increased the nation, O LORD, you have increased the nation: you are glorified: you had removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
16 LORD, in trouble have they visited [paqad] you, they poured out a prayer when your chastening [correction] was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child, that draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, O LORD.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain [to bring forth the I Am among us], we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen [into the birth canal].
19 Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise [as ONE BODY]. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust [the ruin from where you shall rise to life]: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the LORD comes out of his place to punish [paqad] the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Jeremiah, in Lamentation 3, precisely describes the resurrection (the LORD’s and ours, as ONE BODY) predicated on understanding the magnitude of the moment’s experience and its cause and effect (in death and hell). He/we (in the identical pattern of Jonah 2) realizes He is (we are) spiritually dead in hell: society (now the world) in a constant state of confusion, agitation, and turmoil (tribulation as the storm upon the sea), caused by the mouths of men: demagogues and their devices, community agitators raised into power: lawless abusers who’ve become tyrants.

This realization comes when Jeremiah (in Jeremiah 15) tells of His finding the word of God, the roll he, as does Ezekiel, eats and understands it’s the LORD in it, revealing His presence. These men comprehended the pattern sent forward to them (as Ezekiel’s wheel within a wheel) in which understanding (unfolding light) was life.

People of God, I say again, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. You called and, as He promised, God has sent (manifested Himself in) His message, His living word, as you’ve asked. All you need to do is hear Him and, by faith, respond to His commands.

Ephesians 5
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, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore be you not unwise, but understanding what the will of the LORD is.

Lamentations 3
26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
28 He sits alone and keeps silence, because he has borne it upon him.
29 He puts his mouth in the dust [the ruin of the earth – from where He creates man]; if so be there may be hope.
30 He gives his cheek to him that smites him: he is filled full with reproach.
31 For the LORD will not cast off forever:
32 But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.
33 For he does not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
34 To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth.
35 To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the Most High,
36 To subvert a man in his cause, the LORD approves not.
37 Who is he that says, and it comes to pass, when the LORD commands it not?
38 Out of the mouth of the Most High proceeds not evil and good?
39 Wherefore does a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.
41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.
42 We have transgressed and have rebelled: you have not pardoned.
43 You have covered with anger, and persecuted us: you have slain, you have not pitied.
44 You have covered yourself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through.
45 You have made us as the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the people.
46 All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.
47 Fear and a snare is come upon us, desolation and destruction.
48 Mine eye run down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people.
49 Mine eye trickle down, and ceases not, without any intermission.
50 Till the LORD looks down, and beholds from heaven.
51 Mine eye affects mine heart because of all the daughters of my city.
52 Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause.
53 They have cut off my life [as Messiah is cut off, but not from Himself] in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me [as upon the mouth of the tomb].
54 Waters flowed over mine head; then I said, I am cut off.
55 I called upon your name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon.
56 You have heard my voice: hide not your ear at my breathing, at my cry.
57 You drew near in the day that I called upon you: you said, Fear not.
58 O LORD, you have pleaded the causes of my soul; you have redeemed my life.
59 O LORD, you have seen my wrong: judge you my cause.
60 You have seen all their vengeance and all their imaginations against me.
61 You have heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me;
62 The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day.
63 Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their music.
64 Render unto them a recompense, O LORD, according to the work of their hands.
65 Give them sorrow of heart, your curse unto them.
66 Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.

Jonah 2
1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly,
2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell [sheol – the place where the dead reside] cried I, and you heard my voice.
3 For you have cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me.
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 forsake their own mercy.
9 But I will sacrifice unto you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that 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.

Matthew 12
40 For as Jonah [dove – the only sign of the end] was three days and three nights in the whale’s [ketos] belly [swallowed by the ever-open mouths of false prophets and false teachers]; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Jonah 3
3 So Jonah arose, [kept his vow] and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey.

In Jeremiah 15, the LORD tells of His people no longer comprehending or knowing (the earth without light) the words of Moses and Samuel; names meaning drawn (separated) from the waters (below) and (written by) those who hear Him speaking. He says they forgot and abandoned Him from the time of king Manasseh, meaning those who’ve forgotten (God).

He (Manasseh) brought in idol worship, producing the affliction (tribulation and separation from God) they suffer under those leading and teaching them with corrupt words and ideas mixed with His (creating the mired waters of confusion that bring desolation to men and nations). He says none have pity on or bemoan His fallen people: here described as (His ONE BODY) scattered.

It is into this condition The LORD (Jehovah) manifests Himself, rising first in Jeremiah, whose father finds (rediscovers) the book: the written word abandoned. He reads it and first (the prerequisite) understands the condition (the state of the people and nation) is as foretold therein: desolation that comes from no longer hearing the word of God as the word from His mouth, and not listening, falling into the tribulation (tsarah) He said follows.

This, finding the word, is the same Daniel speaks of in Daniel 9, there saying he found the book of Jeremiah (the wheel within the wheel, the word of God sent forward to give life to those it gives understanding). He says He (as a prerequisite) understood the desolation, the condition of the nation and God’s people: their confusion of face come from not hearing and following the LORD.

He (Daniel, after His prayer of confession and repentance – steps now forgotten, abandoned, and vilified) ends the chapter telling of our time, when the daily sacrifice: the knowledge of God bringing (by the necessary sacrifice of self) His righteous judgment (Daniel – God’s Judgment) and His mercy. It speaks of this as the time when Messiah the Prince (the anointed and appointed one, the king in waiting, of God’s choosing) is cut off, but not from Himself.

The word rendered “cut off,” in Daniel 9:26, is karath, which tells of God’s people leaving Him, forgetting the covenant he “made” with them. It’s referring us to its use, in Jeremiah 11:19, telling of Jeremiah’s understanding (having knowledge of) it, the necessary sacrifice, and the destruction of the men (of Anathoth – who prayed for deliverance, and hearing God speaking, rejected His commandments) who hear it.

Jeremiah, in Jeremiah 12, then talks to the LORD about His (longsuffering) judgment. He asks why the wicked are prospering and saying, “He [The LORD unknown in Jeremiah] shall not see our last end.” The LORD (speaking of the last end and His being “cut off,” but not from Himself, unknown walking in the furnace with them as a burning lamp) tells Jeremiah that time is when he is running with the footman. He (the LORD) asks, if they have wearied him then, how is going to do in this time of war, in the swelling (ga’own – pride) of Jordan. As we understand, this phrase means this time when the waters, wherein, below its surface, lurks death, and they (the waters) carry all men into it (the dead sea). It’s when these dark waters overflow their banks, as the swelled pride of men, whose power is to deceive, exceeds all moral and ethical boundaries.

Jeremiah 11
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying,
2 Hear you the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
3 And say you unto them, Thus says the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeys not the words of this covenant,
4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall you be my people, and I will be your God:
5 That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O LORD.
6 Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear you the words of this covenant, and do them.
7 For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice.
8 Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do: but they did them not.
9 And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy [a plot against Me] is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
11 Therefore thus says the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.
12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
13 For according to the number of your cities were your gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have you set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal.
14 Therefore pray not you for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.
15 What has my beloved to do in mine house, seeing she has wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from you? when you do evil, then you rejoice.
16 The LORD called your name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he has kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.
17 For the LORD of hosts, that planted you, has pronounced evil against you, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal.
18 And the LORD has given me knowledge of it, and I know it: then you showed me their doings.
19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.
20 But, O LORD of hosts, that judges righteously, that tries the reins and the heart, let me see your vengeance on them: for unto you have I revealed my cause.
21 Therefore thus says the LORD of the men of Anathoth [who’ve prayed for my help and now reject it once it’s come], that seek your life [causing you to have to sacrifice your life to deliver my message], saying, Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that you die not by our hand:
22 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine:
23 And there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, even the year of their visitation.

Jeremiah 12
1 Righteous are you, O LORD, when I plead with you: yet let me talk with you of your judgments: Wherefore does the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?
2 You have planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit: you are near in their mouth, and far from their reins.
3 But you, O LORD, know me: you have seen me, and tried mine heart toward you: pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter.
4 How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, “He shall not see our last end.”
5 [And the LORD in him answered,] If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the swelling [ga’own] of Jordan?
6 For even your brethren, and the house of your father [my own people have cut a covenant with the men they’ve put in my place: calves they call their gods], even they have dealt treacherously with you; yea, they have called a multitude after you: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto you.
7 I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.

Jeremiah 15
5 For who shall have pity upon you, O Jerusalem? or who shall bemoan you? or who shall go aside to ask how you do?
6 You have forsaken me, says the LORD, you are gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against you, and destroy you; I am weary with repenting.
7 And I will fan them with a fan in the gates [between heaven and hell] of the land; I will bereave them of children, I will destroy my people since they return not from their ways.
8 Their widows are increased to me above the sand of the seas: I have brought upon them against the mother of the young men a spoiler at noonday: I have caused him to fall upon it suddenly, and terrors upon the city.
9 She that has borne seven languish [the church]: she has given up the ghost; her sun [church – as God intended it to shine His understanding upon the earth] is gone down while it was yet day [while I was among them as a burning lamp]: she has been ashamed and confounded [she hasn’t reached the end her false prophets and false teacher have, in my name, told them of]: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword [this word of God they reject] before their enemies, says the LORD.
10 Woe is me, my mother [wisdom], that you have borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on usury [I have not given them more or less than I expect in return, as we covenanted], nor men have lent to me on usury; yet every one of them does curse me.
11 The LORD said, Truly it shall be well with your remnant [the elect whom I’ve awakened as My first fruits]; truly I will cause the enemy to entreat you well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.
12 Shall [not My] iron [strength] break the northern iron [the strength of darkness] and the steel [the power of ignorance]?
13 Your substance and your treasures [the things you think are valuable, which are the dust and ruin of the earth] will I give to the spoil without price, and that for all your sins, even in all your borders.
14 And I will make you to pass with your enemies into a land [Babylon, the confusion wherein you now unknowingly dwell] which you know not: for a fire is kindled in mine anger, which shall burn upon you.
15 O LORD, you know: remember me, and visit me, and revenge me of my persecutors; take me not away in your longsuffering: know that for your sake I have suffered rebuke.
16 Your words [which were abandoned and forgotten] were found, and I did eat them; and your word was unto me the joy [as in Job 38:7, when all the morning stars {first fruits} sang together {again risen into heaven: into full understand} and shout for joy] and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by your name {Jeremiah: Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh: Jesus}, O LORD God of hosts.
17 I sat not in the assembly of the mockers [who reject and vilify Your word and work, Your presence, of which they are ignorant], nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of your hand: for you have filled me with indignation.
18 Why is my pain [longsuffering to bring to life Your ONE BODY] perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuses to be healed? will you be altogether unto me as a liar [as these men who speak words that never come to pass], and as waters [words] that fail?
19 Therefore thus says the LORD [to His people], If you return, then will I bring you again, and you shall stand before me: and if you take forth the precious from the vile [separating my words {This Word} from the corrupt words of false prophets and false teachers], you shall be as my mouth: let them return unto you; but return not you unto them.
20 And I will make you unto this people a fenced brazen wall: and they shall fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you: for I am with you to save you and to deliver you, says the LORD.
21 And I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the hand of the terrible.

Jeremiah 50
43 The king of Babylon [the confusion that now rules the world] has heard the report of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish [tsarah – the tribulation they’ve caused] took hold of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail [the confusion and affliction that brings forth the appointed and anointed king, the shepherd and stone sent for this rescue].
44 Behold, he [the LORD] shall come up like a lion from the swelling [ga’own] of Jordan [against the pride of those whose words have carried all the world into death and hell] unto the habitation of the strong: but I will make them [the enemies mixed among My people, who’ve led them into death and hell] suddenly run away from her: and who is a chosen [anointed] man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me?
45 Therefore hear you the counsel of the LORD, that he has taken against Babylon; and his purposes, that he has purposed against the land of the Chaldeans [those using their words to manipulate and control the world]: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitation desolate with them.
46 At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations.

The word “cry,” above in verse 46, is the Hebrew word za’aq, which refers us to its use in Ecclesiastes 9:17, also rendered “cry,” telling us of the voice of God’s wisdom, which is despised and not heard among the so-called wise of the world. BUT, the Word of God takes the city of Babylon, and their cry is heard when it comes.

Ecclesiastes 9
11 I returned, and saw under the sun [when His light is upon the earth], that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happens to them all [as God wills it for His purpose].
12 For man also knows not his time [this time which Only I know, because the One who lives in me told me so]: as the fishes [those whose misleading words, death lurking below the surface of the waters, cause the blinding ignorance that agitates humanity {the sea}, swallowing up their understanding of the LORD here with them the belly of hell], that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds [who are supposed to be soaring in heaven, in the air, with full understanding] that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly upon them.
13 This wisdom have I seen also under the sun [when I received understanding], and it seemed great unto me:
14 There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king [of Babylon] against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it:
15 Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered [in whom the LORD did His work] that same poor man.
16 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless, the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard [among the so-called wise and powerful of the world].
17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry [za’aq] of him that rules among fools.
18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner [in power] destroys much good.

When Jeremiah, in Lamentations 3:53 & 55, tells of the “dungeon” where they took (cut off) his life, the word is “bowr,” meaning “pit hole (especially one used as a cistern or a prison):–cistern, dungeon, fountain, pit, well.” It is the “pit” Joseph’s brothers put him in before selling him into slavery, and it’s the “dungeon” he was later cast into in Egypt. It’s from the latter he was raised to the throne of Egypt.

We’re told, in Jeremiah 38, it’s the “dungeon” of Malchiah, the son of Melek, names respectively meaning “king of (i.e. appointed by) Jah [Jehovah],” the son of (David) the “King.”

After saying Jeremiah was cast therein, it says “and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire [the cloudy waters of confusion].”

We understand, by the word chebel rendered “cords,” this descent into hell, is for the purposes of the right assessment determined (by the measuring “line”), declared (confessed) to be the “bands” holding God’s people therein, which (lacking these steps) is the “snare” in which all the world now finds itself caught.

Zechariah 2
1 I lifted up my eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line [chebel] in his hand.
2 Then said I, Where go you? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem [God’s people in who he will dwell, in peace by the words that flow from Him], to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof.
3 And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth [bringing this message], and another angel went out to meet him [to receive the message sent to those who become the heirs of Salvation],
4 And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein:
5 For I, says the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
6 Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north [darkness and ignorance], says the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, says the LORD.
7 Deliver yourself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon [confusion].
8 For thus says the LORD of hosts; After the glory has he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that touches you touches the apple of his eye. [The word “apple” is the once used word babah, meaning it is the gate out of Babel, Babylon, for those who see with the “eye” of the LORD. It, therefore, tells of Him telling Babylon, those who touch us, touch those he brings through the gates out of Babylon: confusion]
9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me.
10 Sing and rejoice [shout for joy children of the God], O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the LORD.
11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] has sent me unto you.
12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah [His elect remnant] his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem [His people at large] again.
13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up [as in Jeremiah] out of his holy habitation.

2 Samuel 22
…The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior; you saved me from violence.
4 I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
5 When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid;
6 The sorrows [chebel] 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 [His messenger by who His presence is manifested to those who receive the report], and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind [by His Spirit soaring in heaven: in full understanding].
12 And he made darkness [ignorance] pavilions round about him, dark waters [word of men: ignorance concealing Him], and thick clouds of the skies.
13 Through the brightness [His understanding sent forth] 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 [His people with His message], and scattered them [the ignorant]; lightning [understanding], and discomfited them.
16 And the channels [the water flowing to all] of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered [to be out of course and needing to be again laid: remembered], at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.
17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters [separated me from the waters below];
18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.
19 They prevented [went before] 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. [Hebrews 11:6 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.]
22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

Job 18
5 Yea, the light [understanding] of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.
6 The light shall be dark [what they understand is ignorance] in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.
7 The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.
8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.
9 The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.
10 The snare [chebel] is laid for him in the ground [in the earth], and a trap for him in the way.

These bands, the ways of the wicked, the strength in which they trust, are what Jeremiah describes, in Lamentation 3:62, as the “device” of the wicked against him. He earlier, in verse 60, calls their “device” their “imaginations,” respectively from the words, higgayown (their murmuring against), and machashabah (their plot against {God raising His people}).

Strong’s #1902: higgayown (pronounced hig-gaw-yone’); intensive from 1897; a murmuring sound, i.e. a musical notation (probably similar to the modern affettuoso to indicate solemnity of movement); by implication, a machination.

Strong’s #4284: machashabah (pronounced makh-ash-aw-baw’); or machashebeth {makh-ash-eh’-beth}; from 2803; a contrivance, i.e. (concretely) a texture, machine, or (abstractly) intention, plan (whether bad, a plot; or good, advice).

Lamentation 3
60 You have seen all their vengeance and all their imaginations [machashabah] against me.
61 You have heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me;
62 The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device [higgayown] against me all the day.

Job 5 [Speaking of the vengeance of the wicked]
2 For wrath kills the foolish man, and envy slays the silly one.
3 I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.
4 His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.
5 Whose harvest the hungry eat up, and taketh it even out of the thorns [from the misleaders mixed among us], and the robber swallows up their substance.
6 Although affliction comes not forth of the dust, neither does trouble spring out of the ground [out of the earth, without the wicked stirring it with His devices];
7 Yet man is born unto trouble [as a snare], as the sparks [in which there is no enlightenment] fly upward.
8 I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:
9 Which does great things and unsearchable; marvelous things without number:
10 Who gives rain [His word from heaven] upon the earth, and sends waters upon the fields [to bring life where nothing has grown]:
11 To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.
12 He disappoints the devices [machashabah] of the crafty [those who think they are the wise of the world], so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
13 He takes the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong [into destruction].
14 They meet with darkness [ignorance] in the daytime [when understanding is present], and grope in the noonday [now when understanding is at its highest] as in the night [they choose to remain in darkness because their deeds are evil].
15 But he [the LORD] saves the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.
16 So the poor has hope, and iniquity stops her mouth.
17 Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects: therefore despise not you the chastening of the Almighty:
18 For he makes sore, and binds up: he wounds, and his hands make whole.
19 He shall deliver you in six troubles [tsarah – tribulations, caused by the words of wicked and evil men]: yea, in seven [when His angel, His messenger, comes with His correction] there shall no evil touch you [and He shall lead you out through the gates of Babylon, out of death and hell into heaven: full understanding].

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

Psalms 9
1 I will praise you, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth all your marvelous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in you: I will sing praise to your name, O you Most High.
3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at your presence.
4 For you have maintained my right and my cause; you sit in the throne judging right.
5 You have rebuked the heathen, you have destroyed the wicked, you have put out their name forever and ever.
6 O you enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and you have destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
7 But the LORD shall endure forever: he has prepared his throne for judgment.
8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble [tsarah – in the tribulations].
10 And they that know your name will put their trust in you: for you, LORD, have not forsaken them that [diligently] seek you.
11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
12 When he makes inquisition for blood, he remembers them: he forgets not the cry of the humble.
13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, you that liftest me up from the gates of death:
14 That I may show forth all your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in your salvation.
15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executes: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion [by their murmuring and plotting again Him]. Selah [stop, think, and understand what you are experiencing, seeing with your own eyes].
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.
19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in your sight [as Your eyes see].
20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah [stop, think, and understand what you are experiencing, seeing with your own eyes].

Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is your eye evil, because I am good?

Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is your eye evil, because I am good?

The above comes as the LORD is declaring His (like ours, as God-given) right to do with His property (money) as He decides. Here He’s agreed to pay a preset amount to those working for Him, and when He does so, those who worked longer complained. The “good” He speaks of is His doing what was pre-agreed (the contracted work and payment), and the “evil” is those who think He owes them more than agreed. When receiving promised payment, they murmur against Him (because of what He agreed to and paid others).

The word rendered “lawful,” here in Matthew 20:15, is the Greek word exesti, from the words ex (ek), meaning origin, from which it comes; and esti, from eimi, emphatically meaning, I exist. The word is saying, “through my existence,” through the endowment that comes with my existence: from the time it occurs: becomes living flesh, until the time it ends; this is among the rights God has given (endowed) me, placed into my flesh, as His creation.

The enlightened few understand this principle is the foundation of our national existence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed [at the time life enters flesh] by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and [their pursuit of] happiness.”

Friends, accept it or not, this document, the Declaration of Independence, is a contract (covenant) between God and our national forefathers when they assumed “among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them.” They did so while “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude [righteousness] of our intentions,” and “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

Now, I ask you a question, “Is God unrighteous (evil)?” If He contracted with our forefathers and promised a return for their work, do you speak evil against Him because He gives the payment (Divine Providence upon which they had reliance: faith) He promised? Is it not His right and obligation, as the Supreme Judge of the world, to stand with the righteous and reestablish order lost to the wicked who now lawlessly rule?

Numbers 23
19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: has he said, and shall he not do it? or has he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
20 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he has blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
21 He [has pardoned, and therefore] has not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither has he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king [the voice of His archangel, the arch messenger whose voice is the last trumpet sounding, I Am, the Father’s presence, gathering all God’s people to join with me in the battle before us] is among them.
22 God brought them out of Egypt [out from among their oppressors, from under the deceptive power of tyrants and despots]; he has as it were the strength of a unicorn [the Only and Almighty power of God, the Pantokrator, the Supreme Judge of the world].
23 Surely there is no enchantment [spells of men] against Jacob [the whole family of God, all who will become His children by receiving Him as their Father], neither is there any divination against Israel [who will reign over the world as God reigns]: according to this time [now at the ends of the world] it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What has God wrought!
24 Behold [See what He has wrought], the people shall rise up [to the battle] as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain.

The word “unicorn,” meaning a single power, is in Hebrew r’am (referring to its conspicuousness), from the once used word ra’am, meaning “to rise:– be lifted up.” The word’s (ra’am) only use is in Zachariah 14:10, there speaking of when the king is “lifted up” over all the world (in the name of the Supreme Judge of it).

Zechariah 14
6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark [understanding, light, shall be present but not clear: not comprehended]:
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to [understood by me] the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time [when understanding, light, has left the earth, no longer seen] it shall be light [understand shall, has, come uncomprehended].
8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters [light that is the life of the world: giving understanding] shall go out from Jerusalem [from where flows the LORD words and ways of sustainable peace and civilization]; half of them toward the former sea [the old world], and half of them toward the hinder sea [the new that is beginning]: in summer and in winter [to both those who understand and those who remain ignorant] 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 south of Jerusalem [the earth shall understand, when the high place of the earth are brought down, and the fruit comes from the words of peace that flow from the LORD]: and it [the One power] shall be lifted up [ra’am], and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s [from the son who is at God’s right hand] gate unto the place of the first gate [the entry into His righteousness in His new world], unto the corner gate [when His people turn to Him], and from the tower of Hananeel [where God people, whom He’s favored, see His coming] unto the king’s winepresses [the grapes, fruit of His wrath, judgment and mercy].
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 [who is a man of war].

Haggai 2
1 In the seventh month [in the perfect time], in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,
2 Speak now to Zerubbabel [those born again by coming out of confusion] the son of Shealtiel [for which they asked God], governor of Judah, and to Joshua [the cleansed priesthood, the body of Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation personified] the son of Josedech [who are Jehovah’s righteousness], the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying,
3 Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do you see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?
4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, says the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land, says the LORD, and work: for I am with you, says the LORD of hosts:
5 According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so my spirit remains among you: fear you not.
6 For thus says the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens [the corrupted understanding covering all the world in darkness], and the earth [this generation], and the sea [all the nations and people], and the dry land [where My word is not heard];
7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory [My presence in My People], says the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war].
8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the LORD of hosts.
9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, says the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, says the LORD of hosts.
10 In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,
11 Thus says the LORD of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, says the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the LORD:
16 Since those days were, when one came to a heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the press-fat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labors of your hands; yet you turned not to me, says the LORD.
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD’s temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, has not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20 And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms [of the wicked], and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
23 In that day, says the LORD of hosts, will I take you, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, says the LORD, and will make you as a signet [chowtham – My signature pressed into the earth]: for I have chosen you, says the LORD of hosts.

Psalms 71
1 In you, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
2 Deliver me in your righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline your ear unto me, and save me.
3 Be you my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: you have given commandment to save me; for you are my rock and my fortress.
4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
5 For you are my hope, O LORD God: you are my trust from my youth.
6 By you have I been held up from the womb: you are he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of you.
7 I am as a wonder unto many; but you are my strong refuge.
8 Let my mouth be filled with your praise and with your honor all the day.
9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength fails.
10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
11 Saying, God has forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered [‘atah] with reproach and dishonor that seek my hurt.
14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise you more and more.
15 My mouth shall show forth your righteousness and your salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
16 I will go in the strength of the LORD God: I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours only.
17 O God, you have taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared your wondrous works.
18 Now also when I am old and grey-headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have shown your strength unto this generation, and your power to every one that is to come.
19 Your righteousness also, O God, is very high, who have done great things: O God, who is like unto you!
20 You, which have shown me great and sore troubles, shall quicken me again, and shall bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21 You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
22 I will also praise you with the psaltery, even your truth, O my God: unto you will I sing with the harp, O you Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto you; and my soul, which you have redeemed.
24 My tongue also shall talk of your righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.

In Job 38, the LORD speaks of shaking the wicked from the ends (ending the old and creating the new) of the earth when understanding comes as the light of the new day. He says it’s as a garment covering the world, changed as His signature (chowtham) into it pressed. As we know, the chapter begins with His voice heard from the whirlwind taking away those who’ve darkened the earth by their counsel, which is without the knowledge of God. He asks where these ignorant men were when He created and engineered all these things (Divine Providence) into their orderly arrangement.

Job 21
13 They [the wicked] spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave [Sheol – hell, where the dead are housed, of which they are ignorant].
14 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of your ways [derek – His way, which is to send light, understanding, in the messenger He sends, even into hell’s darkness and there rise from death].
15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto [ask for understanding from] him?
16 Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
17 How oft is the candle [the little understanding they have to guide them in the darkness] of the wicked put out! and how oft comes their destruction upon them! God distributes sorrows [letting them go their own way] in his anger.
18 They are as stubble before the wind [taken away], and as chaff that the storm carries away.
19 God lays up his iniquity for his children: he rewards him [by their own ways, ignorance which destroys them], and he shall know it.
20 His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath [this word] of the Almighty.
21 For what pleasure has he in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off in the midst?
22 Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judges those that are high [exalt themselves and their ways above God’s, even as their ways are destroying them and all they mislead].

Job 38
1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2 Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Gird up now your loins like a man; for I will demand of you, and answer you me.
4 Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if you have understanding.
5 Who has laid the measures thereof, if you know? or who has stretched the line upon it [have you assessed it and brought it to light]?
6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner [pinnah – the head, master, the builders refused] stone thereof;
7 When the morning stars [kowkab – sprang to light and] sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it broke forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
9 When I made the cloud [the place where understanding was kept] the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddling-band for it [and ignorance its protective wrapping],
10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
11 And said, Hitherto shall you come, but no further: and here shall your proud waves [the pride of man] be stayed?
12 Have you commanded the morning since your days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
14 It is turned as clay to the seal [chowtham]; and they stand as a garment [as on the mountain, seen as the shining garments of light, as Moses and Elijah].
15 And from the wicked their light [understanding] is withheld, and the high arm [the evil works of those in power, devils now misleading the world in hell] shall be broken.
16 Have you entered into the springs of the sea? or have you walked in the search of the depth [the deep thing only the Father knows]?
17 Have the gates of death [hell] been opened unto you? or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death?
18 Have you perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if you know it all.
19 Where is the way where light dwells? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
20 That you should take it to the bound thereof, and that you should know the paths to the house thereof?
21 Know you it, because you were then born? or because the number of your days is great?
22 Have you entered into the treasures of the snow? or have you seen the treasures of the hail, [these speak of God’s word frozen {reserved} in heaven, for this moment]
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
24 By what way is the light parted [into the rainbow], which scatter the east wind upon the earth?
25 Who has divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder [understand and its voice – these are speaking of what is written in Revelation 10:1 thru 4, of understanding reserved for this moment];
26 To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man [referring us to Jeremiah 4:25, after verse 23 says, “I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.”];
27 To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
28 Has the rain a father? or who has begotten the drops of dew?
29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who has gendered it?
30 The waters are hid as with a stone [who is Christ – see 1 Corinthians 10:1 thru 4], and the face of the deep is frozen.
31 Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
32 Can you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or can you guide [nachah] Arcturus with his sons?
33 Know you the ordinances of heaven? can you set the dominion thereof in the earth [Can you bring to light the order in heaven showing it rules over the earth]?
34 Can you lift up your voice to the clouds [where understanding is held], that abundance of waters may cover you?
35 Can you send lightning, that they may go and say unto you, Here we are?
36 Who [except God] has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart?
37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay [reserve until now] the bottles of heaven,
38 When [without the waters of heaven] the dust grows into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
39 Shall you hunt the prey for the lion [will you seek these things out to return strength to the strong]? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
40 When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait [for their LORD, the lion of Judah]?
41 Who provides for the raven [those covered in darkness] his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat [this word of God, meant for men, to return their strength].

The name Acturus is said to be from the once used word ‘uwsh, meaning “to hasten:–assemble self,” and Mazzaroth is said to be from nazar, meaning separation. The terms tell of hastening back to the One from who we were separated, referring to Joseph (Shiloh).

Deuteronomy 33
13 And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for the precious things of heaven [understanding held there until this moment], for the dew, and for the deep that couches beneath,
14 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun [church], and for the precious things put forth by the moon [civil government],
15 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains [the path to life], and for the precious things of the lasting hills,
16 And for the precious things of the earth and fullness thereof, and for the good will [God’s will is our good, for which He comes in flaming fire] of him that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.
17 His [Joseph’s – Jesus’] glory is like the firstling [the firstborn among God’s flock] of his bullock, and his horns [power to reign] are like the horns of unicorns [as the only power, the Most High, the Almighty]: with them he shall push the people together [into one Body] to [at] the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim [upon who this second blessing has come], and they are the thousands of Manasseh [who forgot God, and now remember Him and His ways].

When the LORD, in Job 38:31 & 32, speaks of influencing and loosening the bands of His people, for which they sing and shout for joy, He says it’s when He “guided” them. As we see, the word “guide” is from the Hebrew word nachah, meaning “to guide; by implication, to transport (into exile, or as colonists) :–bestow, bring, govern, guide, lead (forth), put, straiten.”

The following, ending with Psalms 143, is reposted from 15 September 2021, as is some of the above:

Quicken me, O LORD, for your name’s sake: for your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.

The above, Psalms 143:11, is David asking the LORD to bring him to life by leading him out of trouble and into the land of righteousness. The word “trouble” is the Hebrew word tsarah, the same word used in Jeremiah 30:7 when describing the time of Jacob’s “trouble” (the tribulation).

Before going forward, a warning: the modern false prophets and false teachers have from their imaginations dreamed up lies, saying the LORD says, when He says He hasn’t said anything to them. They will tell you this isn’t the time, and this isn’t the LORD’s word: deception by which they’ll lead those who follow them into further confusion, delusion, and eventual perdition. They, these devils put in God’s place, will tell you to sit still: either doing nothing or waiting to fly away, while their misleading destroys you. “Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spoke unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of naught, and the deceit of their heart.” Jeremiah 14:14

Jeremiah 30
5 For thus says the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask you now, and see whether a man does travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness [the shame that comes when what is brought forth isn’t what the false prophets said]?
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble [tsarah], but he shall be saved out of it.
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, says the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and will burst your bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
9 But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
10 Therefore fear you not, O my servant Jacob, says the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with you, says the LORD, to save you: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered you, yet I will not make a full end of you: but I will correct you in measure, and will not leave you altogether unpunished.
12 For thus says the LORD, Your bruise is incurable, and your wound is grievous.
13 There is none to plead your cause, that you may be bound up: you have no healing medicines.
14 All your lovers have forgotten you; they seek you not; for I have wounded you with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of your iniquity; because your sins were increased.
15 Why cry you for your affliction? your sorrow is incurable for the multitude of your iniquity: because your sins were increased, I have done these things unto you.
16 Therefore all they that devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil you shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon you will I give for a prey.
17 For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, says the LORD; because they called you an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeks after.
18 Thus says the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwelling-places; and the city shall be built upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.
19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
20 Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
21 And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? says the LORD.
22 And you shall be my people, and I will be your God.
23 Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.
24 The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he has done it, and until he has performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days you shall consider it.

Isaiah 8
13 Sanctify [declare Him, His word, holy] 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? [or look] for the living [God] to the dead [where He isn’t]?
20 [Or] To the law and to the testimony [?]: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light [understanding, or life] in them.
21 And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: 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 [His presence in Me], and look upward.
22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble [tsarah] and darkness [ignorance of those misleading it], dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness [deeper into the cultivated delusions of the day, and the resulting insanity].

Proverbs 1
20 Wisdom cries without; she utters her voice in the streets:
21 She cries in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
22 How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But you have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes;
27 When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress [tsarah] and anguish comes upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
33 But whoso hearkens unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Psalms 143
1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in your faithfulness answer me, and in your righteousness.
2 And enter not into judgment with your servant: for in your sight shall no man living be justified.
3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; he has smitten my life down to the ground; he has made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all your works; I muse on the work of your hands.
6 I stretch forth my hands unto you: my soul thirsts after you, as a thirsty land. Selah.
7 Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit fails: hide not your face [presence] from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit [grave].
8 Cause me to hear your lovingkindness in the morning; for in you do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto you.
9 Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto you to hide me.
10 Teach me to do your will; for you are my God: your spirit is good; lead [nachah] me into the land [earth] of uprightness.
11 Quicken me, O LORD, for your name’s sake: for your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble [tsarah].
12 And of your mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am your servant.

This day is foretold in Number 24:17, when the One Star (kowkab) rises out of Jacob, who is Joseph returning to the throne, as it began in Him in Egypt. It is telling of what is later seen in the Star of David (who we understand is an Ephraimite residing in Judah, as the king line with him resided in Judah, until Shiloh comes, whose right it is, the king of peace out of Joseph, who is the Shepherd and Stone of Israel – as foretold in Genesis 49). As above, in Job 38:7, this uniting (represented in the star of David, two separated triangles {Judah and Israel} brought together under David) is when the eleven stars Joseph saw (Genesis 37:9) are again gathered, and all the children of God sing for joy.

(FYI: the star of David has twelve lines making up its outer points. These lines are on a six-sided center representing the man (6) who is at the center of uniting the twelve tribes, the number (12) representing governmental perfection in church and state.)

Genesis 37
8 And his [Joseph’s] brethren said to him, Shall you indeed reign over us? or shall you indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun [church government] and the moon [civil government] and the eleven stars [kowkab – his brothers] made obeisance to me.
10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall I and your mother and your brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to you to the earth?
11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

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].

1 Chronicles 5
1 Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but forasmuch as he defiled his father’s bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.
2 For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s:)

Genesis 49
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 [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 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 12:5] 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 [good] Shepherd, the [foundation] 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 [thowm] that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings of the breasts [of the Ancient of Days – 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.

Numbers 24
16 He has said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the Most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:
17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star [kawkab] out of Jacob, and a Scepter [the power to rule] shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab [the open mouths of men, which are the gates holding the world in hell], and destroy all the children of Sheth [misleaders who put themselves in God place, who say they are His people].
18 And Edom [enemies among us saying they are our brethren while they war against us to destroy our nation and better culture] shall be a possession, Seir [the places where these enemies rule, as devils misleading] also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.
19 Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remains of the city.
20 And when he looked on Amalek [the king who isn’t our king], he took up his parable, and said, Amalek [like Reuben, the pattern of the son of perdition] was the first of the nations; but his latter end shall be that he perish for ever.
21 And he looked on the Kenites [the many antichrists], and took up his parable, and said, Strong is thy dwelling-place, and you put thy nest in a rock [in the false church].
22 Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted until [your end when] Asshur [communists] shall carry you away captive [as he now has].
23 And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God doeth this!

Ezekiel 21
24 Therefore thus saith the LORD God; Because you have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that you are come to remembrance, you shall be taken with the hand.
25 And you, profane wicked prince of Israel [who are as Reuben, the son of perdition], whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
26 Thus say the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.
27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he comes whose right it is; and I will give it him.

Psalms 148
1 Praise you the LORD. Praise you the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
2 Praise you him, all his angels: praise you him, all his hosts.
3 Praise you him, sun and moon: praise him, all you stars [kowkab] of light [understanding].
4 Praise him, you heavens of heavens, and you waters [that are God’s word] that be above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.
6 He hath also established them forever and ever: he has made a decree which shall not pass.
7 Praise the LORD from the earth, you dragons [you whales, who with open mouths devour], and [who darken] all deeps:
8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapors; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
13 Let them praise the name [identity manifested] of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
14 He also exalts the horn [power to rule, His chosen king] of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise you the LORD.

Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed: neither be you confounded; for your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts [a man of war] is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called

Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed: neither be you confounded; for your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts [a man of war] is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

The word above (from Isaiah 54:4 & 5) rendered “husband” is the fifteen times used Hebrew word ba’al (1166), meaning “to be master; hence, (as denominative from 1167) to marry:–have dominion (over), be husband, marry(-ried, X wife).”

It (ba’al) is referring back to the LORD using it in verse 1, saying “Sing [shout the word of the LORD in triumph], O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing [repeating the word He’s put in our mouths], 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 [ba’al – than the children of the one who has the Husband], says the LORD.”

(Friends, believe, have faith in the reality at hand. The LORD is in my flesh speaking and working, His warring, which only ends in His and our victory. The only question is – whose side will you choose? The heavenly or the hellish? The good or the evil?)

Now I Timothy, a man of war, myself implore you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ in me, who in fleshly presence I Am base among you, but being absent I Am standing boldly against the wicked among you: But I implore you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.

2 Corinthians 10
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of [evil’s] strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations [the fabrications of misleaders among you], and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ [the living God in our flesh];
6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled [when you join in ONE BODY and boldly speak this word, and condemn this evil generation].
7 Do you look on things after the outward appearance? if any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he [thinks he] is Christ’s, even so, are we [truly] Christ’s.
8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the LORD has given us for edification [to build, increase you, by good education], and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed [but instead, reach our expected and foretold end]:
9 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.
10 For his letters say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.
11 Let such a one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present.
12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God has distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you [publishing, making public this good news].
14 For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:
15 Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men’s labors; but having hope, when your faith is increased [by understanding], that we shall be enlarged [see Isaiah 54:2] by you according to our rule [kanon – this standard lifted up] abundantly,
16 To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand.
17 But he that glories, let him glory in the LORD [who commends, shows His approval of, us by giving us His treasure to be freely given from our hand].
18 For not he that commend himself is approved, but whom the LORD commends.

The word “commend” is from the Greek word suniemi, from two words meaning with and stand, which tell of God showing His approval by standing with those who boldly stand with Him against evil.

The word “approved” is from the seven times used Greek word dokimos, meaning “acceptable (current after assayal), i.e. approved:–approved, tried.”

These words speak of the substance known after an analysis (tested under attack and found to remain standing).

1 Corinthians 11
17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that you come together not for the better, but for the worse.
18 For first of all, when you come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you [you are not ONE BODY by One mind of Christ]; and I partly believe it.
19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved [dokimos] may be made manifest among you.

Romans 14
15 But if your brother [who is dead in Christ with heresies among you] be grieved with your meat [your deep understanding that will strengthen him to life], now walk you not charitably [agape – do you walk away from him and not continue, not long-suffering, to give him understanding, love that is light and the life man]. Destroy not him with your meat [with your deep understanding], for whom Christ died.
16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:
17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost [the LORD speaking and working unknown until He is known].
18 For he that in these things serves Christ is acceptable to God, and approved [dokimos] of men.
19 Let us, therefore, follow after the things which make for peace [in which is the ONE BODY], and things wherewith one may edify [build up by educating] another.

As we know, the word “agape” speak of the true love of God, His mercy in judgment, a long-suffering charity that gives, again and again, His treasures, His understanding that is the light and life of the world.

1 Corinthians 13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity [agape], I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity [agape], I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity [agape], it profits me nothing.
4 Charity [agape] suffers long, and is kind; charity [agape] envies not; charity [agape] vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Charity [agape] never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect [this full understanding] is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face [the presence of God with us and the light in us]: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abides faith, hope, charity [agape], these three; but the greatest of these is charity [agape].

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

Isaiah 54
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 [zakar] the reproach of your widowhood any more.
5 For your Maker is your husband [ba’al]; 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, says 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, says 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, says 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 colours, 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 the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, says the LORD.

Matthew
40 For as Jonah [the sign of the end reached] was three days and three nights in the whale’s [ketos] belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart [hidden from the minds of men by the ever-open mouths {chasma} of men who put themselves in God’s place] of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up [in the resurrection] in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places [without this word of God], seeking rest, and finds none.
44 Then he says, I will return into my house [the churches] from whence I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished [outwardly clean].
45 Then goes he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits [false doctrines of devils] more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first [because he in ignorance thinks he is saved when he is dead among the dead]. Even so, shall it be also [as it now is] unto this wicked generation.
46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, your mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to speak with you.
48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven [calling all to gather into His ONE BODY to speak His One Mind], the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Isaiah 26
1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open you the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.
4 Trust you in the LORD forever: for in the LORD Jehovah is everlasting strength:
5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he lays it low; he lays it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7 The way of the just is uprightness: you, most upright, do weigh the path of the just.
8 Yea, in the way of your judgments, O LORD, have we waited for you; the desire of our soul is to your name, and to the remembrance [zeker] of you.
9 With my soul have I desired you in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek you early: for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10 Let favor be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
11 LORD, when your hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of your enemies shall devour them.
12 LORD, you will ordain peace for us: for you also have wrought all our works in us.
13 O LORD our God, other lords beside you have had dominion [ba’al] over us: but by you only will we make mention [zakar – rememberance] of your name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have you visited [paqad] and destroyed them, and made all their memory [zeker] to perish.
15 You have increased the nation, O LORD, you have increased the nation: you are glorified: you had removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
16 LORD, in trouble have they visited [paqad] you, they poured out a prayer when your chastening [correction] was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child, that draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, O LORD.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain [to bring forth the I Am among us], we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen [into the birth canal].
19 Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise [as ONE BODY]. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust [the ruin from where you shall rise to life]: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the LORD comes out of his place to punish [paqad] the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

James 1
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraids not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the LORD.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower [anthos – the word and works he has wrought] of the grass he shall pass away.
11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the grass, and the flower [anthos] thereof falls, and the grace of the fashion of it perishes: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried [dokimos], he shall receive the crown of life, which the LORD has promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust has conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights [understanding], with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
18 Of his own will begat he us [into life in His family, after His own kind] with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man works not the righteousness of God [whose wrath is against the inventions of men who’ve removed God from their knowledge and are thereby without understanding].

Friends, it’s pretty evident the world has gone to hell. The men who’ve led it there, denying culpability, now claim they will fix it and restore peace by finishing their course of “building back better.”

Those leading God’s people tell them to listen for His voice, while they keep talking over Him, spewing the same old ideas that have led them to lukewarm and sitting still in silence. The LORD says to follow him, take up your cross, and follow Him as He has risen to condemn this evil generation.

Romans 1
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, [against the inventions of this evil generation] who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that [truth] which may be known of [from] God is manifest in them; for God has shown it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of Him [the unseen truth hidden in these misleaders’ ignorance] from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made [now appear], even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened [they became the ignorant they are].
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet [the deserved end they inevitably meet with].
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder [even of children and the unborn], debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them.

Amos 6
1 Woe to them that are at ease [lukewarm and comfortable] in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria [the high places of the earth where idols are put in God’s place and called by His Holy name], which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!
2 Pass you unto Calneh [the protection of your idols], and see; and from thence go you to Hamath [their fortress] the great: then go down to Gath [the winepress – of wrath] of the Philistines [the invading army among you destroying you]: be they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border [is this end greater than the end the LORD foretold]?
3 You that put far away the evil day [this end you refuse to see, because of those you’ve listened to and followed into ignorance], and cause the seat of violence to come near [cause the tribulation to increase until it’s now destroying you as you sit still and do nothing about it];
4 That lie [in comfort] upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;
5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent [chashab – fabricate] to themselves instruments [prepared words to be repeated] of music, like David;
6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph [God’s people and their king in this evil generation].
7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched [exceeded their authority] themselves shall be removed.
8 The LORD God has sworn by himself, says the LORD the God of hosts [who is a man of war], I abhor the excellency of Jacob [My people who are still unknowingly wrestling with Me and My words], and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein.
9 And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.
10 And a man’s uncle [Reuben, the son of perdition, who puts himself in his father’s place] shall take him up, and he that burns him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, Is there yet any with you? and he shall say, No [the whole body is desolate]. Then shall he say, Hold your tongue [hacah – saying, stay still in “silence”]: for we may not make mention [zakar – bring to remembrance] of the name [identity] of the LORD.

Ezekiel 28
18 You have defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of you, it shall devour you, and I will bring you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold you.
19 All they that know you among the people shall be astonished at you: you shall be a terror, and never shall you be any more.
20 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
21 Son of man, set your face against Zidon [those who hunt the souls of men], and prophesy against it,
22 And say, Thus says the LORD God; Behold, I am against you, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of you: and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets [as it is this day]; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword [this word from the mouth of God] upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Friends, those you’ve followed into this current condition, will lead you into destruction, and the only way to salvation is to take them out of the way. Follow me as I follow the One who sent me on this mission.

The “silence” about the LORD’s presence here manifested, above in Amos 6:10, from hacah, is only spoken of one other time by Amos. In Amos 8:3, it’s the cause of death of those these wicked men have swallowed with the ever-open mouths spewing the gates of hell.

Amos 8
1 Thus has the LORD God shown unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.
2 And he said, Amos, what see you? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end [harvest] is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them anymore.
3 And the songs of the temple shall be howling in that day, says the LORD God: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence [hacah].
4 Hear this, O you that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,
5 Saying, When will the new moon [the new government God is bringing with His presence] be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath [this interruption of the LORD whose come for our correction], that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit [they are asking when the LORD will leave them so they can get back to their same old destruction and misleading]?
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 [wicked] works.
8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood [this word of God returned and flooding from His people]; and it [the wicked] shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, says the LORD God, that I will cause the sun [the old corrupt churches] to go down at noon [when the light, this understanding of God’s word, reaches its apex in heaven: in full understanding], and I will darken [cause the ignorance of the world to be seen] the earth in the clear day [when I meet with My people in the cleared air]:
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 [when the kings they’ve followed are realized to be the dead], and the end thereof as a bitter day.
11 Behold, the days come, says 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 [speaking of this word from the mouth of God, silenced as it has been by those who’ve put themselves and their idols in God’s place]:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea [from generation to generation, as they have these seventy years in desolation], and from the north [ignorance in darkness] even to the east [until they look to this sun rising light], they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it [because those they follow are telling them to look elsewhere, to the idols they’ve put in the LORD’s place].
13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst [without this word of God].
14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria [worshipping idols they call by God’s name], and say, Your god [calves], O Dan [judgment], lives; and, The manner of Beersheba lives [were idols corrupt the wells that should flow God’s word and they instead mislead into death]; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.

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

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

This “evil generation” is ruled by confusion (Biblical Babylon: the devouring Beast), generated by a mass media (news and social) and their handlers in power (godless and lawless scientific materialists, communists, globalists, and anarchists), whose foundational power is to deceive, which is the source of the world’s confusion now become mass delusion and insanity (the inability to distinguish between reality and their delusions).

This “evil generation” is ruled by confusion (Biblical Babylon: the devouring Beast), generated by a mass media (news and social) and their handlers in power (godless and lawless scientific materialists, communists, globalists, and anarchists), whose foundational power is to deceive, which is the source of the world’s confusion now become mass delusion and insanity (the inability to distinguish between reality and their delusions).

These wicked rulers use false information (religious, political, medical, economic, etc.), spuriously mimicking God; as the evil gods of this world, they speak their will into existence (only) in the minds of the complicit and those they deceive. Their only power is over the mind of those who surrender to the spells these modern sorcerers cast.

Combative truth and a sound (awakened) mind are the only necessary inoculation (our natural immune response) against all such evil! They (truthful awakening) are the only way to peace. So, the church must take up its cross, as Christ calls us; condemn this evil generation, and, overcoming the evil’s censorship, preach the good news of the cure for this evil generation’s delusions and insanity.

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

Save the Vote!

Stop the Left (godless and lawless communists, globalists, and anarchists) from ever again stealing an election – as they did the presidency in 2020. If you doubt the steal, you’re a reality denier or, at best, ignorant. Either way, you’re a surrendered victim of the thieves’ gaslighting (outright lies and false accusations against truth and its tellers).

It (the steal) occurred as we knew it would, in several “swing states,” through criminal conspiracy (violation of RICO: Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act), these criminals used thousands of Democrat Party 501Cs (supposed impartial, tax-exempt nonprofits), to harvest votes. These nonprofits then recruited and deployed tens of thousands of mules to systematically carry and deposit these votes (each going) to numerous “vote drop boxes.”

Thanks to the availability of geo-tracking data, True the Vote, through a massive technological effort, compiled this data to show these mules visited these 501Cs many times and then went to many different drop boxes they stuffed with their illegal votes. They were able to track the number of votes cast and show they, through their criminal effort to change the outcome, denied Trump his victory and fraudulently gave it to Biden.

By the way, all this indisputable evidence is presented in the documentary “2000 Mules.” The movie also has much of the obvious “box stuffing” on video, thanks to many locations having and not turning off their surveillance cameras.

Remember, these drop boxes were in response to COVID, when the same perpetrators HYPED a virus, which (HYPE – irrational reaction) they used to justify their unelected Election Boards to unilaterally rewrite election laws allowing them (the boxes), and lacking normal oversight, the lawless did as the lawless do: they broke the law. And they devised and perpetrated this crime with funding from many other extremely well-capitalized nonprofits (Mark Zuckerberg’s the largest, donating hundreds of millions – Zuckerberg who continues to conspire to cover up these, his and others, crimes by censoring anything that brings it to light).

The solution to this specific problem (while remembering that the lawless will always look for other ways to break the law: because they are habitually lawless. Also, remember, never underestimate the magnitude of the evil arrayed again us, the law-abiding, or their willingness to be who they are: evil and lawless):

  1. Poll watchers must observe all voting, therefore:
    a. Drop boxes should be illegal.
    b. Mail-in voting should be illegal.
    c. Voter ID should be mandatory.
  2. Due to the effects of these types of voting on the nation, these should be National Law.

Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: let such as love your salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.

Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: let such as love your salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.

The above, Psalms 40:16, is David speaking of the LORD being found by those who diligently seek Him, love His salvation, and “magnify” Jehovah.

The passage is speaking about ordinal growth (ordained and occurring in a systematic and programed sequence) as John speaks of it in John 3:30. He is speaking of the LORD working unknown in Him, and Christ only coming when the person prepared by the LORD unknown (the Holy Ghost) in him, joins with Him themselves, (the body he has prepared for Himself) are born again from above, and the LORD rises in them as Christ in their flesh.

Thus is the return to (not of) the LORD, who is already present (unknown) in the one through whom He is speaking and working, as the Paraclete: the comforter who comes alongside to lead us into all truth. The place He leads us is into heaven, full understanding, where we (the sleeping, by awakening) understand God has sent us, with Him, as He promised we would forever be.

John 3
27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven [the place of full understanding expounded: in the firmament].
28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
29 He that has the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30 He must increase [in you be magnified], but I must decrease.
31 He that comes from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks of the earth: he that comes from heaven is above all.
32 And what he has seen and heard, that he testifies; and no man receives his testimony.
33 He that has received his testimony has set to his seal that God is true.
34 For he whom God has sent speaks the words of God: for God gives not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand.
36 He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.

John 3
11 Truly, truly, I say unto you, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and you receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no man has ascended up to heaven [as the son of man has been lifted up], but he that came down [received full understand] from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up [magnified] the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up [so the LORD in me is magnified]:
15 That whosoever believes [the LORD is speaking and working] in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son [of God], that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life [as they are begotten, given full understanding, by Him].
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name [Jesus: Jehovah’s salvation manifested in the flesh] of the only begotten Son of God [given understanding without an intermediary, as occurs with all others]. [“so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.” 1 Corinthians 15:22 & 3]
19 And this is the condemnation, that light [understanding] is come into the world, and men loved darkness [ignorance] rather than light [understanding], because their deeds were evil [misleading into continued death].
20 For every one that does evil hates the light [understanding], neither comes to the light [understanding], lest his deeds should be reproved [proven to be untrue].
21 But he that does truth comes to the light [understanding], that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

1 Corinthians 15
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ [God’s anointed] raised:
17 And if Christ is not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
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 firstfruits; 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 [the corrupt who now have dominion over the earth] and all [the corrupt] authority and power [of the world].
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 says 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.

Matthew 11
25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank you, O Father, LORD of heaven and earth, because you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes.
26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in your sight.
27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek [not using my power to destroy] and lowly [not making you my servants] in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

1 Thessalonians 4
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification [making what is in you pure, separated from the corrupt ideas and way of those who don’t know God] and honor;
5 Not in the lust [pathos] of concupiscence [trespassing into, coveting, things forbidden and defrauding the brethren], even as the Gentiles which know not God:
6 That no man go beyond and defraud [deceive and mislead] 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 [wallowing in the mire stirred by the ungodly], but unto holiness.
8 He, therefore, that despises, despises not man, but God, who has also given unto us his holy Spirit [Himself, unknown in our flesh].
9 But as touching brotherly love you need not that I write unto you: for you yourselves are taught of God to love [agapao – giving the awakening gifts of understanding to] one another.
10 And indeed you do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia [the houses of dead flesh, the churches and synagogues]: but we beseech you, brethren, that you increase more and more [in the knowledge of God];
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 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, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus [Jehovah’s Salvation, in {man} the flesh] 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 [be resurrected before] them which are asleep.
16 For the LORD himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel [arch-messenger], and with the trump of God [calling all to gather to the LORD, in His ONE BODY]: and the dead in Christ shall rise [awaken] first:
17 Then we which are alive [already awake] and remain shall be caught up [harpazo – pulling us from the fires of tribulation] together with them in the clouds [into full understanding], to meet the LORD in the air [in the clarity He brings]: and so shall we ever be with the LORD [in heaven {full understanding} in the flesh].
18 Wherefore comfort [lead into all truth] one another with these words.

John 14
20 At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
21 He that has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22 Judas [Judah, the new crop of leaders, the elect remnant] says unto him, not Iscariot [not the misleaders who’ve betrayed Him], LORD, how is it that you will manifest [emphanizo – declare by your word] yourself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him [in the flesh, the mystery of Godliness, God is manifested in the flesh], and make our abode with him [in the flesh of those receiving Him at His coming].
24 He that loves me not keeps not my sayings: and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter [the Paraclete, the LORD in the flesh unknown], which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance [hupomimnesko – see Jonah 2:7 below], whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
28 You have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, you might believe.
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world comes [the wicked who bring in ignorance and darkness, by putting themselves in God’s place], and has nothing in me.
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence [and here we are, the place where He is again seen, through understanding, comprehending the experience].

John 14
1 Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Jonah 2
1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly,
2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell [Sheol – the habitations of the dead] cried I, and you heard my voice.
3 For you had cast me into the deep [these three days in the ignorance caused by the wicked who put themselves in God’s place], in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me.
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 [of these wicked men], 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 forsake their own mercy.
9 But I will sacrifice unto you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed: [to preach that] Salvation is of the LORD.
10 And the LORD spake unto the fish [dag, the source of the agitation of humanity {as Nineveh}, these men’s word’s causing mass ignorance of God, hiding the LORD here in the belly of the earth these three days], and it vomited [with these mens’ spewing the LORD awakens to judgment – see Psalms 35 below] out Jonah [the dove, the sign of the end reached] upon the dry land [where God’s word hasn’t been heard – see John 14:30 above].

Psalms 40
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3 And he has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
4 Blessed is that man that makes the LORD his trust, and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. [As Jonah says, in Jonah 2:8, when He calls to the LORD to save him from, pull him from, the belly of hell, where the enemies among us rule, saying of this mercy, “They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.”
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 it is written of me, [In the volume of the book I found myself written.]
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 [As in Nineveh]: 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.
11 Withhold not you your tender mercies from me, O LORD: let your lovingkindness and your truth continually preserve me.
12 For innumerable evils [of the enemies among us] have compassed me about: mine iniquities [not standing boldly against them] have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up [to your place of full understanding – see Jonah 2:4]; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart fails me [the foundation of the earth are destroyed].
13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
16 Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: let such as love your salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
17 But I am poor and needy; yet the LORD thinks upon me: you are my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

When the above says these men are saying (to David) “aha, aha,” it’s in relation to “shame” that comes from not reaching the end expected and proclaimed. In other words, they think they have seen the end of David (swallowed up in the agitation, tribulation, storm caused by the mouths of these wicked men, as devouring whales with wide-open mouths), to which the LORD opens his mouth, awakening in judgment.

Psalms 35
7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he has hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto you, which delivers the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoils him?
11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
12 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
14 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourns for his mother.
15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:
16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
17 LORD, how long will you look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
18 I will give you thanks in the great congregation: I will praise you among much people.
19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hates me without a cause.
20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide [as whales] against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye has seen it.
22 This you have seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O LORD, be not far from me.
23 Stir up yourself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my LORD.
24 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to your righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

Matthew 12
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathers not [into ONE BODY] with me scatters abroad.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost [whose word and word are to gather God’s people into His ONE BODY] shall not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this [old] world, neither in the [new] world to come.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil [misleading and scattering] things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from you.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah:
40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall [for their words] condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here [speaking this word of God’s truth].

As often discussed, the word “whale’s” above is the once used Greek word ketos, meaning “from the base of 5490; a huge fish (as gaping for prey [with open mouths devouring]):–whale.” It’s from the once used word chasma, meaning “from a form of an obsolete primary chao (to “gape” or “yawn”); a “chasm” or vacancy (impassable interval):–gulf.”

The latter word is used in telling of the great uncrossable space between heaven and hell, which is described above, in Matthew 12:31 & 32, as the open mouths of men, speaking against the Holy Spirit: the LORD unknown, speaking and working to bring all who receive Him into heaven (full understanding, in One Mind and BODY of Christ). These wicked men, liars against the truth, can never come to understanding, the light, unable to cross because of their own words (evil deeds) rejecting the entrance He is preaching and teaching. And those who have received Him cannot cross again into the place of the dead: in the hell of ignorance: the darkness now the snare in which they are trapped.

Psalms 69
12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.
13 But as for me, my prayer is unto you, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of your mercy hear me, in the truth of your salvation.
14 Deliver me out of the mire [the waters muddied by these men, clouding understanding], and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the [ignorance of the] deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
16 Hear me, O LORD; for your lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of your tender mercies.
17 And hide not your face from your servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
19 You have known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonor: mine adversaries are all before you.
20 Reproach has broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
24 Pour out your indignation upon them, and let your wrathful anger take hold of them.
25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.
26 For they persecute him whom you have smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom you have wounded.
27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into your righteousness.
28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let your salvation, O God, set me up on high.

In the title verse, Psalms 40:16, the word rendered “magnify” is gadal, meaning “to twist (compare 1434), i.e. to be (causatively make) large (in various senses, as in body, mind, estate or honor, also in pride).” It is speaking of the gathering, the enlarging of His ONE BODY rising with the lifting up of the son of man, as Moses lifted the serpent in the wilderness.

The word refers us to its use in Numbers 14:17, where we’re told of what Moses thinks the enemy will say if the LORD lets His people all die in the wilderness; and then in Joshua 3:7 & 4:14 as we’re told who is “magnified.” In the first the people are planning to appoint others to lead them as they return back to Egypt (in doing so, they would have all died, and the LORD fearing for them, from this saves them instead). Deuteronomy 32:27 Were it not that I feared [for them] the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD has not done all this. 28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. 29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Numbers 14
17 And now, I beseech you, let the power of my LORD be great [gadal – magnified as You, by mercy, enlarge Your people], according as you have spoken, saying,
18 The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.
19 Pardon, I beseech you, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of your mercy, and as you have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.
20 And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to your word:
21 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.
22 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;
23 Surely they shall not see the land which I swore unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:
24 But my servant Caleb [and Joshua], because he had another spirit [seeing as God’s sees, with One mind] with him, and has followed Me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

Joshua 3
2 And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host;
3 And they commanded the people, saying, When you see the ark of the covenant [this Testimony by which the LORD manifests His presence] of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then you shall remove from your place, and go after it.
4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that you may know the way by which you must go: for you have not passed this way heretofore.
5 And Joshua [progeny of Joseph, the king line in the perpetual son: the son of Nun: in perpetuity – Jesus: Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh] said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves [separate yourselves from corruption, make yourselves pure and see God, and join Him in His work]: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.
6 And Joshua spoke unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people.
7 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify [gadal] you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.
8 And you shall command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When you are come to the brink of the water of Jordan [the words that carry all the world into death], you shall stand still [‘amad – the stand at this end of days, when Michael stand and we awaken from the dust of the earth] in Jordan.
9 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God.
10 And Joshua said, Hereby you shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you [all who now possess the land by their deceptions and insanity].

Daniel 12
1 And at that time shall Michael stand up [‘amad], the great prince which stands [‘amad] for the children of your people: and there shall be a time of trouble [tsarah – the tribulation], such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the [opened] book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness [giving understanding] of the firmament [the rightly divided word, separating God’s from the words of death, which God called heaven]; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars [giving light in heaven to the ignorant] forever and ever.
4 But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro [diligently seeking the LORD], and knowledge shall be increased.
5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.

12 Blessed is he that waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days [when the book was opened ending the darkness].
13 But go you your way till the end be: for you shall rest, and stand [‘amad] in your lot at the end of the days.

Joshua 3
11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the LORD of all the earth passes over before you into Jordan.
12 Now, therefore, take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man.
13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the LORD of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off [rightly divide] from the waters that come down from [heaven] above; and they shall stand [those who have this word of God and boldly stand against the waters and ways of death] upon a heap.
14 And it came to pass, when the people removed from their tents, to pass over Jordan [the words that have carried all into death], and the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people;
15 And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overflows [swells with the pride of men] all his banks all the time of harvest,)
16 That the waters which came down from above [heaven] stood [‘amad] and rose up upon a heap very far [a chasma – between hell and heaven] from Adam [the second Adam, who is a quickening spirit], to the city that is beside Zaretan [tsarthan – their distress, in tribulation]: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain [were verse clearly stated to the people at large], even the salt sea [the wisdom of the so-called wise of the world], failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho [the moons – civil governments now based upon lies upon lies, and upon a foundation of confusion they built a wall – and I beheld the earth, and it had become without form, and void].
17 And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.

The word rendered “cut off,” in verse 16 above, is the Hebrew word karath, meaning “to cut (off, down or asunder); by implication, to destroy or consume; specifically, to covenant (i.e. make an alliance or bargain, originally by cutting flesh and passing between the pieces).”

It (karath) is a word (definitively) used only twice in Genesis. The first is when the LORD says he will never again “cut off” all flesh with a flood. The flood then was when the LORD allowed the ignorance of man, their corrupt ideas and ways to have their full course, destroying and ending the old world. The second use, in Genesis 15:18, is when the LORD “made” a covenant with Abram, therein describing the time of Abraham’s (Abram’s) sleep, which ends when described by Daniel above.

In Genesis, the time between then and now is in the smoking furnace when men’s wickedness again runs its full course; when the LORD in the flesh, as a burning lamp, would be among us unknown, preparing all things for this moment. This is the gospel, the good news that He has prepared an escape for those who now receive it as He manifests His presence.

Isaiah 55
1 Ho, every one that thirsts, come you to the waters [this word of God], and he that has no money; come you, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do you spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfies not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat you that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness [in the prosperity that comes with hearing and following the good that comes from the LORD].
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make [karath] an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David [correcting those who receive it and become the children of God].
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 Behold, you shall call a nation that you know not, and nations that knew not you shall run unto you because of the LORD your God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he has glorified you.
6 Seek you the LORD while he may be found, call you upon him while he is near:
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not thither, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
12 For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees [the upright in Spirit] of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn [misleaders] shall come up the fir tree [the upright], and instead of the brier [deceivers] shall come up the myrtle tree [the righteous]: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off [karath].

Ezekiel 37
19 Say unto them, Thus says 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 [My divided people] shall be one [BODY of Christ] in mine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon you write shall be in your hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, where they have 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 [karath] 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 [do purify and separate them to rule the world as God rules, in righteousness: with judgment and mercy], when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

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

Come near, you nations, to hear; and hearken, you people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

Come near, you nations, to hear; and hearken, you people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

The above is Isaiah 34:1, and is the LORD calling all the earth to hear what He, later in verse 8, calls “the controversy of Zion.” He says it is the day of His vengeance and the year of recompense for it (the controversy), when He stretches a (measuring – assessing) line upon the earth and finds its foundation to be confusion, and the stones built upon it to be emptiness (worthless).

As we’ve many times discussed, “confusion” and “emptiness” are from the Hebrew words tohuw and bohuw. The first and last time each of these words is used, the two other of the three times they appear together, speaking of the condition the earth has become (hayah), they are identically rendered “without form, and void.” The first of these is in Genesis 1:2, there followed by speaking of the darkness (ignorance) that covers the deep understanding of the present word of God, upon which (the word) the Spirit of God moved, and light (understanding) was created.

The creation of understanding is later more precisely defined by John, in John 1, where we’re told in the beginning was the Word, and the was with God and was God. It says in Him, in His initial self-manifestation of His presence as the word, was life that was the light (understanding) of men, and this understanding was in the world, but, because of the darkness (ignorance) covering the earth, men couldn’t comprehend what they were experiencing.

John continues, saying (in the beginning) this was the word of God made flesh, dwelling in the first begotten, and as many as received Him (as such) gave He the power to become the children of God. John tells us the difference between Him and all others is He is begotten “of God” Himself, and all others are begotten by the first-begotten (quickened) from the dead: filled with God’s glory: His grace and truth. “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” 1 Corinthians 15:45

1 Corinthians 15
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ [God’s anointed] raised:
17 And if Christ is not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
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 firstfruits; 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 [the corrupt who now have dominion over the earth] and all [the corrupt] authority and power [of the world].
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 says 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.

As we know, in this same chapter, Paul later speaks of death’s destruction in verse 54, saying it’s “when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.”

This victory is what he (Paul), earlier in verse 51, calls a “mystery” when all are changed (by the light: understanding that ends the corruption clouding our minds and we, thereby, put on immortality. He says, in verse 52, this happens “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

In describing the time of this change, Paul uses several words that only appear in this one verse (52); the first atomos, rendered “moment;” and rhipe, rendered “twinkling.” The first (atomos) accurately translated means uncut, and refers to the undivided ONE BODY of Christ, and the second (rhipe), more correctly, means to toss out – the eye (ophthalmos). This latter aspect (of the change) modifies the first, speaking of what the LORD tells us about the “eye.”

Matthew 6
22 The light [understanding] of the body [of Christ] is the eye [ophthalmos]: if therefore your eye [ophthalmos] be single [undivided], your whole body [of Christ] shall be full of light [understanding].
23 But if your eye [ophthalmos] is evil [misleading], your whole body [of Christ] shall be full of darkness [ignorant and dead]. If therefore the light [understanding] that is in you be darkness [ignorance], how great is that darkness [ignorance]!

Matthew 5
29 And if your right eye [ophthalmos] offends you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body [of Christ] should be cast into hell [and death].

Matthew 7
5 You hypocrite, first cast out the beam [the ideas that blind] out of your own eye [ophthalmos]; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother’s eye [ophthalmos].

Matthew 9
27 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, You son of David, have mercy on us.
28 And when he came into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus says unto them, Believe you that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, LORD.
29 Then touched he their eyes [ophthalmos], saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
30 And their eyes [ophthalmos] were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.
32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil [the ideas of misleaders].
33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spoke: and the multitudes marveled, saying, It was never so seen [until the eyes are opened] in Israel.

Matthew 13
10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speak you unto them in parables?
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever has [faith], to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not [faith, believing it the LORD speaking], from him shall be taken away even that he has.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which says, By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive:
15 For this people’s heart [foundational understanding] is waxed gross [into darkness], and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes [ophthalmos] they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes [ophthalmos] and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted [changed], and I should heal them.
16 But blessed are your eyes [ophthalmos], for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
17 For truly I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them.

This blindness caused by the corruption of understanding (critical thinking and truthful discourse destroyed) is the darkness upon the deep, in the earth become without form (tohuw – used seventeen other times), and void (bohuw – only used in the three times mentions above), is further explained (cause, effect, and rescue) in the other times tohuw appears.

Before looking at these, Jeremiah, in the final use of both words, tells us precisely, the trumpet is the voice heard from the standard (nec – the pole upon which the son of man must be lifted). He describes it as the light coming into the darkness still not comprehending it as such, and the darkness as His people not having understanding or knowledge and therefore not knowing Him.

(Friends, the world only knows what the unrepentant and incorrigible false prophets and false teachers tell them. It must be understood that these are those chained to their own darkness, bound by their own words misleading them to perish (remain dead) in the hell of their own creation. As long as the world follows them, and rejects this word, it will further descend into fear, insanity, destruction, and mass misery, while they all insanely wait for the same false prophets and false teacher to lead them out.)

2 Thessalonians 2
5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things [about the sons of perdition]?
6 And now you know what withholds [katecho – this corruption of truth, the misleading of false prophets and false teaching, holds you down] that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets [katecho – those who now hold you down] will let [will hold down, in the fall], until he is taken out of the way [mesos – out of our midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked [the same “unreasonable and wicked men” Paul tells us, in 2 Thessalonians 3:2, we should pray to be “delivered ” {saved} from] be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the Spirit of [the fire of God] his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [the understanding now given as He manifests His presence] of his coming:
9 Even him [The LORD – coming after the world has been made ignorant of His manner, 1 Timothy 3:16, the mystery revealed, manifested in the flesh], whose coming is after the working of Satan [resisting and opposing God] with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish [by following his false prophets and false teaching]; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved [by Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in our flesh].
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 [by separating you from corruption to His work] of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory [His grace and truth in you] of our LORD Jesus Christ.

Jeremiah 4
16 Make you mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers [evil messengers, angels of darkness, waiting and watching for an opportunity to destroy God’s people with their misleading] come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah.
17 As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she has been rebellious against me, says the LORD.
18 Your way and your doings have procured these things unto you; this is your wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reaches unto your heart.
19 My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound [the voice of the LORD’s presence] of the trumpet, the alarm of war [calling all to muster to Him].
20 Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.
21 How long shall I see the standard [how long shall you see the son of man lifted as a brazen serpent devouring the serpents among us], and hear the sound [qowl – this voice of the archangel, in whom is manifested the LORD’s presence, calling all to gather in ONE BODY to Him] of the trumpet?
22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was [hayah – had become] without form [tohuw], and void [bohuw]; and the heavens, and they had no light.
24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man [with His spirit], and all the birds [those who soar by His understanding in them] of the heavens were fled.
26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.
27 For thus has the LORD said, The whole land [earth] shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.
28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black [without any understanding or knowledge, and thereby ignorant of Him]; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.
29 The whole city shall flee for the noise [the voice of God’s army, His ONE BODY proclaiming His presence] of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.
30 And when you are spoiled, what will you do? Though you clothe yourself with crimson, though you deck you with ornaments of gold, though you rent your face with painting, in vain shall you make yourself fair; your lovers [the false prophets and false teachers: the misleaders you follow, who are destroying you] will despise you, they will seek your life [they will lead you into destruction rather than repent and receive the love of the truth].
31 For I have heard a voice [qowl] as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child [the first-begotten of God’s only begotten], the voice [qowl] of the daughter of Zion, that bewail herself, that spreads her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers [those among you misleading into self-destruction and blaming you for the evil they’ve wrought].

So, just to be sure I have this right: God’s people and His better ideas, and our traditional Christian culture, are being systematically destroyed and replaced by evil, aren’t doing anything to combat it because the perpetrators tell you they aren’t doing what you plainly see, and saying if you see it you’re evil? Did I get that right? “My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise [hamah – the “hum” of a song, that brings these word to mind] in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound [voice] of the trumpet, the alarm of war.”

The second time the word tohuw (“without form” which is “confusion”) is used, after the first in Genesis 1:2, is in Deuteronomy 32:10, rendered “waste” as the LORD foretells the place He’s now come to raise us once again.

Deuteronomy 32
2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain [God’s word from heaven], my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass [bringing life again to the dry ground of the earth that has been without it]:
3 Because I will publish the name of the LORD [I Am “That” I Am]: ascribe you greatness unto our God.
4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
6 Do you thus requite [speak resistance against] the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he your father that has bought you? has he not made you, and established you? [2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable {apoleia – worthy of perdition} heresies, even denying the LORD that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction {apoleia – perdition}. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious {apoleia} ways {worthy of perdition}; 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 – perdition} slumbers not.]
7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you.
8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated [for His work] the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
9 For the LORD’s portion [inheritance] is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste [tohuw – without form, in confusion] howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings, taketh them, bears them on her wings:
12 So the LORD alone did lead him [to raise them to soar in full understanding: in heaven], and there was no strange god with him.
13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey [sweetness from His mouth that is His strength] out of the rock [His word flowing from the flesh He chooses], and oil [anointing us] out of the flinty rock [that when struck brings forth fire];
14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and you did drink the pure blood of the grape.
15 But Jeshurun [and when He fed us {His nation, under Him} and filled us with His feast, we prospered by heeding His word: following His good advice] waxed fat, and kicked: you are waxen fat, you are grown thick, you are covered with fatness; then he [we] forsook God which made him [us], and lightly esteemed the Rock [Christ – the Father manifesting His presence in the one He chooses and anoints] of his salvation.
16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations [the creations of men, which they put in God’s place and called by His name] provoked they him to anger.
17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
18 Of the Rock that begat you you are unmindful, and have forgotten God that formed you.

2 Corinthians 11
12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion [to keep you down]; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we [as men possessed by a spirit: us of God and them of Satan resisting Him].
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 are transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works [the darkness to which they are chained].
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.
17 That which I speak, I speak it not after the LORD, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.
18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.
19 For you suffer fools gladly, seeing you yourselves are wise.
20 For you suffer, if a man brings you into bondage, if a man devours you, if a man takes of you, if a man exalts himself; if a man smites you on the face.

1 Corinthians 4
9 For I think that God has set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are honorable, but we are despised [called evil by the current corrupt and evil culture].
11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling-place;
12 And labor, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:
13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.
15 For though you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have you not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
16 Wherefore I beseech you, be you followers of me.
17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus [I Am “That” Tim of God], who is my beloved son, and faithful in the LORD, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.
18 Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.
19 But I will come to you shortly, if the LORD will, and [you] will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power [of God in Me].
20 For the kingdom of God is not in word [the vain word of men who are puffed up, swelled with pride in their power to deceive], but in power [of God, giving His light, which is the life of the world].
21 What will you? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?

1 Samuel 12
19 And all the people said unto Samuel [who heard the LORD speaking], Pray for your servants unto the LORD your God, that we die not: for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king [of our choosing].
20 And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: you have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart;
21 And turn you not aside: for then should you go after vain [tohuw – confusing] things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain [tohuw – they will bring confusion].
22 For the LORD will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake: because it has pleased the LORD to make you his people.
23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:
24 Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he has done for you.
25 But if you shall still do wickedly, you shall be consumed [in the fire], both you and your king [you choose to follow into wickedness].

Isaiah 24
10 The city of confusion [tohuw] is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.
11 There is a crying for wine [that changes minds away from God’s understanding] in the streets; all joy is darkened [become ignorance], the mirth of the land [earth] is gone.
12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.
13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.
14 They shall lift up their voice [qowl], they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea [among the people at large].
15 Wherefore glorify you the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles [the places that have not heard His word] of the sea.
16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.
17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.
18 And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise [qowl – the voices of the treachery] of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.
19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host [the army of the wicked] of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison [of their own lies], and after many days shall they be visited [paqad – punished].
23 Then the moon [the corrupt civil governments of the world – all] shall be confounded, and the sun [the corrupt churches – all] ashamed, when the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

Isaiah 29
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear [with understanding] the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and [come] out of darkness [ignorance].
19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20 For the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproves in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught [tohuw].
22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed [he shall reach the promised land], neither shall his face now wax pale [but shall rise in the LORD’s strength].
23 But when he sees his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

Isaiah 40
17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity [tohuw].
18 To whom then will you liken God? or what likeness will you compare unto him?
19 The workman [makes an idol they call by God’s name] melts a graven image, and the goldsmith spreads it over with gold, and casts silver chains [by which they bind themselves in darkness].
20 He that is so impoverished [without these treasures of heaven] that he has no oblation chooses a tree [a man he thinks is upright] that will not [in his mind] rot; he seeks unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved [from God’s place].
21 Have you not known? have you not heard? has it not been told you from the beginning? have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22 It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in:
23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he makes the judges of the earth as vanity [tohuw].
24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind [from where the LORD speaks] shall take them away as stubble.
25 To whom then will you liken me, or shall I be equal? says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who has created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one fails.
27 Why sayest you, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, My way is hidden from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
28 Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength [that comes with understanding]; they shall mount up with wings as eagles [into heaven, full understanding, with Him]; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 41
21 Produce your cause, says the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, says the King of Jacob.
22 Let them bring them forth, and show us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
23 Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.
24 Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of naught: an abomination is he that chooses you.
25 I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon mortar, and as the potter treads clay.
26 Who has declared [nagad – who stood boldly against these misleaders] from the beginning, that we may know? and before-time, that we may say, He is righteous? yea, there is none that shows, yea, there is none that declares, yea, there is none that heareth your words.
27 The first [begotten of God] shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them [see these misleaders]: and I will give to Jerusalem one that bringeth good tidings.
28 For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counselor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.
29 Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion [tohuw].

How do we know when these men are misleading? They’re breathing, and their lips are moving.

Isaiah 44
6 Thus says the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war]; I Am the first, and I Am the last; and beside me there is no God.
7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them.
8 Fear you not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? you are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity [tohuw]; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses [when their lip are moving]; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
10 Who has formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?
11 Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen [that make idols they put in God’s place], they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

Isaiah 45
18 For thus says the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he has established it, he created it not in vain [tohuw – not without form], he formed it to be inhabited: I Am the LORD; and there is none else.
19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place [not from the places of ignorance] of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek you me in vain [tohuw – not in the places of confusion]: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.
21 Tell you, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who has declared this from ancient time? who has told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Savior; there is none beside me.
22 Look unto me, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth: for I Am God, and there is none else.
23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
24 Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.
25 In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

Isaiah 49
1 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, you people, from far; The LORD has called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother has he made mention of my name [I Am Tim of God].
2 And he has made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand has he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver has he hid me;
3 And said unto me, You are my servant, O Israel [who shall reign on earth as God reigns], in whom I will be glorified.
4 Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for naught [tohuw], and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the LORD, and my work with my God.
5 And now, says the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
6 And he said, It is a light thing that you shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, that you mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
7 Thus says the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despises, to him whom the nation abhors, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose you.
8 Thus says the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard you, and in a day of salvation have I helped you: and I will preserve you, and give you for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
9 That you mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness [in obscurity: by ignorance unknown to themselves], Show yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.

Isaiah 59
1 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perverseness.
4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleads for truth: they trust in vanity [tohuw – confusion], and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
5 They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eats of their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.
6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.
7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goes therein shall not know peace.
9 Therefore is judgment far from us, neither does justice overtakes us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.
10 We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.
11 We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.
12 For our transgressions are multiplied before you, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;
13 In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.
16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense.
19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, says the LORD.
21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, says the LORD; My spirit that is upon you, and my words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, nor out of the mouth of your seed, nor out of the mouth of your seed’s seed, says the LORD, from henceforth and forever.

Psalms 48
1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
5 They saw it, and so they marveled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
6 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
7 You break the ships of Tarshish [those trying to escape their vows] with an east wind.
8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it forever. Selah.
9 We have thought of your lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of your temple.
10 According to your name, O God, so is your praise unto the ends of the earth: your right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of your judgments.
12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
13 Mark you well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that you may tell it to the generation following.
14 For this God is our God forever and ever: he will be our guide even unto [and out of] death.

But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.

But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.

The above, Micah 4:1, come after the LORD tells the heads of His people, after He (as in me) has pronounced His judgment against the prophets, seers, and diviners, who say we will have peace, while, by their deceptions, they are at war against Him.

Micah 3
1 And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and you princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?
2 Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones;
3 Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron.
4 Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
5 Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that put not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
6 Therefore night shall be unto you, that you shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you [you shall be ignorant of it], that you shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets [this tells of understanding leaving the church, because they are following these false prophets and false teachers], and the day shall be dark over them [and ignorance covers the earth, as it is this day].
7 Then shall the seers be ashamed [when their promised end doesn’t come and they are proven ignorant], and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips [shut their mouths]; for there is no answer of God [Whose judgment has come against them, and against Who they are at war].
8 But truly I AM full of power by the Spirit of the LORD [of Whom they are ignorant], and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
9 Hear this, I pray you, you heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.
10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? no evil can come upon us.
12 Therefore [because of these deceivers and misleaders in power] shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest [as opposed to a city where the people are gathered].

The word used, above in verse 8, to tell of the LORD in Micah confronting, by manifesting (“declaring”) His presence against these misleaders, is the Hebrew word nagad, meaning “to front, i.e. stand boldly out opposite; by implication (causatively), to manifest; figuratively, to announce (always by word of mouth to one present); specifically, to expose, predict, explain, praise.”

This act, the LORD manifesting His mercy in judgment, is understood in one of the other two times the word (nagad) is used by Micah, in Micah 6:8.

Micah 6
1 Hear you now what the LORD says; Arise [from silence and ignorance], contend you before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.
2 Hear you, O mountains, the LORD’s controversy, and you strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD has a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel.
3 O my people, what have I done unto you? and wherein have I wearied you? testify against me.
4 For I brought you up out of the land of Egypt [from the oppressors], and redeemed you out of the house of servants; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
5 O my people, remember now what Balak [the devastator] king of Moab [the king of those whose words are the gates holding God’s people in death and hell] consulted, and what Balaam [not of the people] the son of Beor [burning] answered him from Shittim [the fruitful place] unto Gilgal [the swirling waters, the word of agitation]; that you may know the righteousness of the LORD. [Selah! This is referring to Numbers 23:12, when Balak sent Balaam to curse God’s people, and the LORD intervened, and Balaam said {answered Balak} “Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD has put in my mouth?”
6 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?
7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8 He has shown [nagad – declared to] you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
9 The LORD’s voice cries unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see your name: hear you the rod [this voice of the LORD], and who has appointed it.
10 Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable?
11 Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights?
12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13 Therefore also will I make you sick in smiting you, in making you desolate because of your sins.
14 You shall eat, but not be satisfied; and your casting down shall be in the midst of you; and you shall take hold, but shall not deliver; and that which you deliver will I give up to the sword.
15 You shall sow, but you shall not reap; you shall tread the olives, but you shall not anoint you with oil; and sweet wine, but shall not drink wine.
16 For the statutes of Omri [who worshipped idols, after the manner of Jeroboam, making calves and appointing devils to mislead the people, telling them these idols were God] are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab [who also put these idols in God’s place, and made altars to them], and you walk in their counsels; that I should make you [by these abominations] a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof a hissing [calling all to their idols]: therefore you shall bear the reproach of my people.

Numbers 23
1 And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams.
2 And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam offered on every altar a bullock and a ram.
3 And Balaam said unto Balak, “Stand by your burnt offering, and I will go: peradventure the LORD will come to meet me: and whatsoever he shows me I will tell you. And he went to a high place.”
4 And God met Balaam: and he said unto Him, “I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered upon every altar a bullock and a ram.”
5 And the LORD put a word in Balaam’s mouth, and said, Return unto Balak, and thus you shall speak.
6 And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Moab.
7 And he took up his parable, and said, “Balak the king of Moab has brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying, ‘Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.’
8 How shall I curse, whom God has not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD has not defied?
9 For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.
10 Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!”
11 And Balak said unto Balaam, “What have you done unto me? I took you to curse mine enemies, and, behold, you have blessed them altogether.”
12 And he answered and said, “Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD has put in my mouth?”
13 And Balak said unto him, “Come, I pray you, with me unto another place, from whence you mayest see them: you shall see but the utmost part of them [the one forth part], and shall not see them all: and curse me them from thence.”
14 And he brought him into the field of Zophim [the watchers: waiting for their chance to destroy God’s people], to the top of Pisgah [the cleft – thought to be inaccessible place], and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a ram on every altar.
15 And he said unto Balak, “Stand here by your burnt offering, while I meet the LORD yonder.”
16 And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, “Go again unto Balak, and say thus.”
17 And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him, “What has the LORD spoken?”
18 And he took up his parable, and said, “Rise up, Balak [devastator of God’s people], and hear; hearken unto me, you son of Zippor [a pupil of God – whose mouths have become the gates of hell]:
19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: has he said, and shall he not do it? or has he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
20 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he has blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
21 He has not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither has he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.
22 God brought them out of Egypt; He [God] has as it were the strength of a unicorn [The Only Almighty Power – as in Pantokrator: Omnipotent].
23 Surely there is no enchantment [no spell, no manipulation by words, in a curse of man, that has power over what God says] against Jacob, neither is there any divination [no false prophecy or false teaching that can take them to an end other than what God has promised] against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘What has God wrought!’
24 Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion [My great army, My ONE BODY], and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain.”
25 And Balak said unto Balaam, “Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all.” [Speak only this word from the mouth of God.]
26 But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, “Told not I you, saying, All that the LORD speaks, that I must do?”
27 And Balak said unto Balaam, “Come, I pray you, I will bring you unto another place; peradventure it will please God that you mayest curse me them from thence.”
28 And Balak [the devastators] brought Balaam [who aren’t God’s people] unto the top of Peor [to another place they think is inaccessible], that look toward Jeshimon [to the desolation they have wrought, now claiming they will rebuild the same alters to the idols they’ve created and put is God’s place, calling them God].
29 And Balaam said unto Balak, “Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bullocks and seven rams.”
30 And Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered a bullock and a ram on every altar.

It is of this futility and insanity, the LORD speaks in Micah 6 above, saying:

6 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?
7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8 He has shown [nagad – declared to] you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
9 The LORD’s voice cries unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see your name [the mark of your idenity]: hear you the rod [this voice of the LORD], and who has appointed it.
10 Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable?

Micah 4
1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.
4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken it.
5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god [and they will understand these are idols who cannot save or deliver], and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.
6 In that day, says the LORD, will I assemble her that halts [went lame and strayed from God’s path], and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;
7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even forever.
8 And you, O tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, unto you shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
9 Now why do you cry out aloud? is there no king in you? is your counselor perished? for pangs have taken you as a woman in travail.
10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth [your king], O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shall you go forth out of the city, and you shall dwell in the field, and you shall go even to Babylon [back to the same confusion that has ruled the world into desolation]; there shall you be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem you from the hand of your enemies.
11 Now also many nations are gathered against you, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.
12 But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hoofs brass: and you shall beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the LORD of the whole earth.

2 Corinthians 6
1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that you receive not the grace of God in vain.
2 (For he says, I have heard you in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored you: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
3 Giving no offense in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in watchings, in fastings;
6 By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
8 By honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;
9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
10 As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
11 O you Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged [you now understand the LORD is in us working and speaking His will].
12 You are not straitened [not restricted by Him that is] in us, but you are straitened in your own bowels [you are restricted by your own false ideas you’ve been misled into believing].
13 Now for a recompense in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be you also enlarged [receive the mind of Christ, and He will manifest His glory in and through you].
14 Be you not unequally yoked together with unbelievers [who don’t believe God manifests Himself in the flesh, at His will]: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light [understanding] with darkness [with those who choose to remain ignorant of the LORD’s presence]?
15 And what concord has Christ with Belial [the idols men put in His place]? or what part has he that believes with an infidel [those who’ve been without faith in the LORD]?
16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols [as calves put in His place]? for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them [these unbelievers], and be you separate, says the LORD, and touch not the unclean thing [that defile the mind and keep it stupefied in darkness]; and I will receive you.
18 And will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty [Pantokrator, Omnipotent].

This chapter (2 Corinthians 6) begins with the LORD (in Paul) telling us it is the rescue; when he has heard (quoting Isaiah 49:8) us and answers by manifesting Himself into this day of salvation. The means and end of the old corrupt heaven and earth are then spoken of as he calls us out (quoting Isaiah 52:11) from among the unbelievers to who we are unequally yoked. The new heaven and earth are then described (quoting 2 Samiel 7:14) when He is dwelling and walking in us, and we, by this course correction, become His sons and daughters.

Isaiah 49
5 And now, says the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
6 And he said, It is a light thing that you shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, that you mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
7 Thus says the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despises, to him whom the nation abhor, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose you.
8 Thus says the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard you, and in a day of salvation have I helped you: and I will preserve you, and give you for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
9 That you mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
10 They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that has mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
11 And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.

Isaiah 52
6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I Am he that does speak: behold, it is I.
7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publishes peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publishes salvation; that says unto Zion, Your God reigns!
8 Your watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
9 Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10 The LORD has made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
11 Depart you, depart you, go you out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go you out of the midst of her; be you clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD.
12 For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your reward.
13 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
14 As many were astonished at you; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

Isaiah 53
1 Who has believed our report [shmuw’ah – this teaching sound doctrine]? and to whom [through understanding] is the arm of the LORD revealed?

2 Samuel 7
13 He [the son of David, who reestablish the king line] shall build a house for my name [wherein the LORD will dwell], and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:
15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before you.
16 And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you: your throne shall be established forever.

In these above passages, the LORD leads us to understand the cause of the fall (into abeyance) of the king line. It’s alluded to as the LORD speaks of when He “took it from Saul,” and gave it to the family of David forever. It is revealed in understanding the succession of Samuel the “seer” (ho’eh), to Nathan the prophet (nabiy’), and finally to Gad the seer (chozeh).

Here are the Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary definitions of these words:

Strong’s #7203: ro’eh (pronounced ro-eh’) [used six times]; active participle of 7200; a seer (as often rendered); but also (abstractly) a vision:–vision.

Strong’s #5030: nabiy’ (pronounced naw-bee’) [used 315 times]; from 5012; a prophet or (generally) inspired man:–prophecy, that prophesy, prophet.

Strong’s #2374: chozeh (pronounced kho-zeh’) [used 18 times]; active participle of 2372; a beholder in vision; also a compact (as looked upon with approval):–agreement, prophet, see that, seer, (star-)gazer.

The first word tells of the original state of man (6), in understanding, when hearing only God (Samuel – shmuw’el) and (believing the report, shmuw’ah) heeding His good advice (obeying His commandments).

The second tells of when the first is neglected and abandoned (as a garden overgrown with thorns and briers, and misleaders come to power) and the prophets are many times (315 = 45 x 7) sent (in diverse manners), only seeing and speaking the promises in parts they saw fulfilled far off (perfected now in one concorded message).

The last defines the cause of the condition of ignorance [18 = 6 + 6 + 6], blinded and deaf to the prophets speaking God’s word and warning of the judgment that would ultimately come.

The first ends with the death of Samuel, and Saul (the king “desired” by the people, chosen by the crowd, and not by God) sought the advice of familiar spirits (the known dead), after the LORD stopped speaking to Him; after he disobeyed His commandment.

The commandment He disobeyed was to “utterly destroy” Amalek (who is not our king – or of God’s choosing), an Edomite (descended from Esau) king; the LORD thereby telling us he is an enemy mixed among us, as a brother and countryman at war against us (a misleader – against our better culture under God).

We know this king from Exodus 17, after water, the word of God, flows from the Rock (Christ unknown in Moses), and God’s people go to war with him. During the battle, Moses is upon this Rock, on a mountain as a banner lifted up where all could see Him. When he held up his hand (the arm of the LORD revealed, in the report, the water from the Rock), God’s people prevailed, and when he let it down, when it wasn’t seen, Amalek prevailed.

The final (finisher) king (I Am) comes to do what Saul wouldn’t, end the war, and destroy the power of these would-be (wannabe) kings to control (disrupt and delude) the minds of men. The one leading the battle on the ground (earth) is Joshua the son of Nun: Jesus: Jehovah’s salvation manifested in the flesh, the perpetual son of God and man.

The LORD tells Moses to write this for a memorial in a book, and that He will utterly extinguish the remembrance of Amalek. Moses then built an altar and called the name of it Jehovah-Nissi, from the word nec; the pole upon which Moses lifted the brazen serpent. This tells us Jehovah is in the flesh of the son of man who must be lifted, from who God’s word flows, so all who believe (this report) can look to Him and (receiving the light) live. Doing this, heeding the warnings, and following His commands, the venomous words of the serpents mixed among these believers no longer have an effect.

Exodus
14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance [zeker] of Amalek from under heaven.
15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-Nissi:
16 For he said, “Because the LORD has sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.”

The “remembrance” is spoken of in the only two times the word zeker appears in Isaiah, in Isaiah 26:8 & 14. The first of these refers to the first appearance of the word (zeker), in Exodus 3:14, as The LORD God tells Moses His name, “I Am That I Am,” is a memorial to all generations, meaning He is the living God to be remembered in every generation, as he was with (in) Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He tells Moses to go tell this to the elders, that it’s God visiting His people, making His presence known, manifested in Moses to save them from those oppressing them (Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh, as I Am).

Isaiah 26
1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open you the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.
3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.
4 Trust you in the LORD forever: for in the LORD Jehovah is everlasting strength:
5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he lays it low; he lays it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7 The way of the just is uprightness: you, most upright, do weigh the path of the just.
8 Yea, in the way of your judgments, O LORD, have we waited for you; the desire of our soul is to your name, and to the remembrance [zeker] of you.
9 With my soul have I desired you in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek you early: for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10 Let favor be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
11 LORD, when your hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of your enemies shall devour them.
12 LORD, you will ordain peace for us: for you also have wrought all our works in us.
13 O LORD our God, other lords beside you have had dominion over us: but by you only will we make mention of your name.
14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have you visited [paqad] and destroyed them, and made all their memory [zeker] to perish.
15 You have increased the nation, O LORD, you have increased the nation: you are glorified: you had removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
16 LORD, in trouble have they visited [paqad] you, they poured out a prayer when your chastening [correction] was upon them.
17 Like as a woman with child, that draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, O LORD.
18 We have been with child, we have been in pain [to bring forth the I Am among us], we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen [into the birth canal].
19 Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise [as ONE BODY]. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust [the ruin from where you shall rise to life]: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the LORD comes out of his place to punish [paqad] the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

The end of the “seer [ro’eh – who see clearer than the chozeh],” Samuel (shmuw’el – hearing God), ends the sequence 1 Chronicles 29:29 describes as “the book of Gad [the crowd] the seer [chozeh],” speaking of the subsequent fall of the king line. It speaks of when Solomon died and His son Rehoboam, instead of lessening the burden on the people of Israel (the northern ten tribes), as was advised by the elders who stood with Solomon, listened to the younger crowd he grew up with and increased the burden. This led to the dividing (and eventual conquering) of the kingdom united under David and started a continuing degeneration resulting in the end of both parts (Judah and Israel).

According to God, according to His word, the division is part of His plan to enlarge His people, scattering them among all nations, purposefully for the moment when He gathers all who receive Him in His ONE BODY, under His one chosen king and shepherd.

The name Rehoboam, is from the Hebrews words rachab, meaning “to broaden (intransitive or transitive, literal or figurative):–be an en-(make) large(-ing), make room, make (open) wide,” and ‘am, meaning “a people (as a congregated unit); specifically, a tribe (as those of Israel); hence (collectively) troops or attendants; figuratively, a flock:–folk, men, nation, people.”

We are told, in Deuteronomy 33:20, it is Gad (the LORD’s army, His ONE BODY when it rises) that is enlarged (rachab). This is the same “enlarged” Body foretold in Isaiah 60:5 and Genesis 49:19, the latter saying they were (Gad was) overcome, and in this end-time overcome (the army that receives the victory over) the world.

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.

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 [drawing from the Ancient of days: wisdom], 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 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.

Deuteronomy 33
13 And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that couches beneath [these treasures found below the surface of His word],
14 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun [the church shining the light of this new day], and for the precious things put forth by the moon [civil government also bringing light into the darkness],
15 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains [these high places bringing light as God intended them], and for the precious [these treasure given as God freely gave them] things of the lasting [because they are good, better ideas on high] hills,
16 And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush [in the fire that never burns Him, as the Son of God walking in the furnaces]: let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren [for the work of God].
17 His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns [the Only power, the pantokrator, Omnipotent and Almighty]: with them he shall push the people together to the ends [the end of the old and beginning the new] of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim [God’s people in this generation, upon whom this blessing has come], and they are the thousands of Manasseh [those who forgot the LORD and now remember Him].
18 And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out; and, Issachar, in your tents.
19 They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand [in His many people].
20 And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlarges [rachab] Gad: he dwells as a lion, and tears the arm [the works of the wicked] with the crown of the head.
21 And he provided the first part for himself [the husbandman who labors is the first partaker], because there, in a portion of the lawgiver, was he seated [enthroned]; and he came with the heads of the people, he executed the justice of the LORD, and his judgments with Israel.

Isaiah 60
1 Arise, shine; for your light [understanding and life] is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
2 For, behold, the darkness [ignorance] shall cover the earth, and gross darkness [ignorance] the people: but the LORD shall arise upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you.
3 And the Gentiles [those who don’t God] shall come to your light [understanding], and kings to the brightness [the light in us as His glory manifesting His presence] of your rising.
4 Lift up your eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to you: your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
5 Then you shall see, and flow together, and your heart shall fear, and be enlarged [rachab – into His ONE BODY]; because the abundance of the sea [humanity at large] shall be converted unto you, the forces of the Gentiles [the army that doesn’t know God] shall come unto you.

Psalms 4
1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: you have enlarged [rachab] me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory into shame? how long will you love vanity, and seek after falsehood? Selah.
3 But know that the LORD has set apart [separated] him that is godly for himself [the flesh in whom He manifests Himself]: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness [good judgment and mercy], and put your trust in the LORD.
6 There be many that say, “Who will show us any good?” LORD, lift you up the light of your countenance [the understanding of your presence] upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart, more [in this harvest of your treasures] than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for you, LORD, only make me dwell in safety.

2 Samuel 22
37 You have enlarged [rachab] 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.
42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad.
44 You also have delivered me from the strivings of my people, you have kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me.
45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me.
46 Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places.
47 The LORD lives; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the Rock of my salvation.
48 It is God that avenges me, and that bringeth down the people under me.
49 And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: you also have lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: you have delivered me from the violent man.
50 Therefore I will give thanks unto you, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto your name.
51 He is the tower of salvation for his king: and shows mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.
