Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD.

9 – 13 June 2024 PART 1 OF 2

Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD.

The above is Jeremiah 23:1, stating the chapter’s topic, wherein the LORD today began in verse 37, saying “Thus shall you say to the prophet, ‘What has the LORD answered you?’ and, ‘What has the LORD spoken?’”

The title is the answer from the LORD, while the false prophets among us say the LORD’s words are a burden, when He, in context, says their words are the burden and withholding them (His answering) is their most woeful offense.

The secondary objective, against which The LORD sent me, is these men’s misleading (evil) words, the reason, the primary objective, also stated in the title verse, is to gather (into His ONE BODY) His people they’ve (the wicked by this same evil) scattered.

Jeremiah 23
2 Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel against the pastors [ra’ah – shepherds and seers] that feed my people; You have scattered [puwts – dashed into pieces] my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited [paqad – manifesting My presence to them as the Chief Overseer of the earth, for their good, to unite into My ONE BODY] them: behold [see], [therefore] I will visit [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth, bring] upon you the evil of your doings, says the LORD.
3 And I will gather [qabats – will collect] the remnant of my flock out of all countries [‘erets – the earth] whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds [My ONE BODY]; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
4 And I will set up shepherds [ra’ah – pastors and seers seeing as I see] over them which shall feed them [with My words]: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed [chatham – not again be broken apart by men’s confusion and fear], neither shall they be lacking [paqad – will not be without an overseer seeing as I see], says the LORD.
5 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch [I Am], and a King [I Am] shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth [‘erets].
6 In his days Judah [my new crop of Godly leaders I raise from among the ruin of the old] shall be saved, and Israel [My people at large who inherit the promise of a new heaven and earth wherein dwells My righteousness] shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The LORD Our Righteousness.
7 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD lives, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land [‘erets – the earth] of Egypt [under those tryants];
8 But, The LORD lives, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country [‘erets – the earth covered in darkness: men’s ignorance], and from all countries [‘erets – the earth] whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land [‘adamah – this new generation I Am creating].
9 My heart [My mind in My people] within me is broken because of the [false] prophets [infesting church and state]; all my bones shake [rachaph – only appears elsewhere in Genesis 1:2, telling of when the LORD unknown “moved” on the face of the waters: the darkened deep; and in Deuteronomy 32:11, of when He, as an eagle, “flutters” over His nest to cause His young to come fly with Him]; I am [the dead body of Christ is] like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine has overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness [has come to remove the cause, the corruption of false prophets and false teachers, that pervades the bead body].
10 For the land is full of adulterers [who have left the LORD to follow these false gods of the world]; for because of swearing [‘alah – these men, false gods, loathing this word, and exalting theirs above it] the land [‘erets – the earth] mourns; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.
11 For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, says the LORD.
12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness [their ignorance of My presence and manner]: they shall be driven on, and fall therein [the pit they’ve dug]: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation [pquddah – this time when the LORD appears as the Chief Overseer of the earth], says the LORD.
13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria [who worship idols men created, put in God’s place, and who their devils, their evil misleaders, tell them are their gods]; they prophesied in Baal [the creations of men who put themselves in God’s place], and caused my people Israel to err.
14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none does return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom [a place of endless flames], and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah [total ruin].
15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war] concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood [their own poison they teach and preach], and make them drink the water of gall [the same poison by which they judge]: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness [the same poisonous teaching, preaching, and judgment] gone forth into all the land [‘erets – the old and corrupt earth].
16 Thus says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war], Hearken [shama’ – obey] not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain [worthless by following their ways]: they speak a vision of their own heart [creations of their own corrupted minds: evil imaginations], and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD has said, You shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walks after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you [the great paradox of our time: looking to those who’ve brought the violence of their evil upon heaven and earth, calling it peace, to warn God’s people against the evil they’ve brought upon them, who are at war with God and His people while calling it peace].
18 For who [none of these misleaders] has stood [‘amad] in the counsel [cowd] of the LORD [by which the living live – 1 Thessalonians 3:8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the LORD.], and has perceived [ra’ah – seen as He sees] and heard [shama’ – and obeyed] his word? who has marked [qashab – let pierce the ear and enter the mind] his word, and heard [shama’ – and obeyed] it?
19 Behold, a whirlwind [from where the voice of the Almighty is heard] of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he has executed, and till he has performed the thoughts of his heart [His mind]: in the latter days [‘achariyth – these last days of ignorance of the LORD’s presence] you shall consider [biyn – understand] it perfectly [biynah – by the understanding given by Jehovah, from the whirlwind].
21 I have not sent these [false] prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
22 But if they had stood [‘amad] in my counsel [cowd], and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should [would] have turned them [to life by standing fast in the LORD] from their evil way [taught by these false prophets and false teacher], and from the evil of their doings [their corrupt judgment by which they judged the old heaven and earth into insanity and ruin].
23 Am I a God [I Am, My presence in the conversation manifested] at hand [qarowb – “near (in place, kindred {Redeemer} or time),” from qarab, meaning approaching, as in bringing these things to pass – Isaiah 56:1 Thus says the LORD, Keep you judgment, and do justice: for my salvation {yshuw’ah – Jesus} is near {qarowb} to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.], says the LORD, and not [also] a God afar off [rachowq – present in this time when the old earth and heaven are ruled by the evil decrees of the wicked in power}? [Hebrews 13: 6 So that we may boldly say, The LORD is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. 7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.]
24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? says the LORD. Do not I fill [male’ – replenishes] heaven and earth? says the LORD. [Jeremiah 31:25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished {male’} every sorrowful soul. 26 Upon this I awaked {quwts – the awaking of Isaiah 26:19 and Daniel 12:2}, and beheld {ra’ah – saw as the LORD sees}; and my sleep was sweet unto me.]
25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed [chalam – they are bound firmly to the thoughts of their own minds], I have dreamed [chalam]. [This {chalam} is the same twice used in Isaiah 29:8 as the LORD speaks of the sealed book, the same Daniel 12 speaks of, the time, while the book, the word of God, is sealed, when these false prophesies of false prophets rule the minds of all the dead, from which sleep all God’s people awaken and realize they have been deceived by the wanderings {backsliding} of their own thought into delusions.]
26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart [minds];
27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name [My identity manifested the same yesterday, today, and forever] by their dreams [chalowm] which they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal [the idol men created, put in My place, and call by My name].
28 The prophet that has a dream [chalowm], let him tell a dream [chalowm]; and he that has my word, let him speak my word [this word] faithfully. What is the chaff [the worthless words of these false prophets] to the wheat [this good word of the LORD now rightly threshed from the chaff]? says the LORD.
29 Is not my word like as a fire? says the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the [false] rock [in which men have put their trust and been misled] in pieces?
30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, says the LORD, that steal [from My people] my words everyone from his neighbor.
31 Behold, I am against the prophets, says the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He says [when I have never spoken to these false prophets who refuse to know Me and instead choose to remain in their delusions].
32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams [chalowm], says the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness [putting no value on My words from My chosen messenger I sent]; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people [they mislead] at all, says the LORD.
33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask you, saying, “What is the burden of the LORD?” you shall then say unto them, “What burden?” I will even forsake you, says the LORD. [Because they call My words a burden without value, “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”] [The word “burden,” here and below, is from the word massa’ – meaning “a burden; specifically, tribute, or (abstractly) porterage; figuratively, an utterance, chiefly a doom, especially singing; mental, desire:–burden, carry away, prophecy, X they set, song, tribute.”]
34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man [that calls this word a burden without value] and his house.
35 Thus shall you [My wakened people] say every one to his neighbor, and every one to his brother, What has the LORD answered? and, What has the LORD spoken? [And you shall give them this word that is light and life freely given to those held in these men’s darkness here in the old heaven and earth they’ve corrupted and turned into hell.]
36 And the burden of the LORD shall you mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for you have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war] our God.
37 Thus shall you say to the prophet, “What has the LORD answered you?” and, “What has the LORD spoken?” [And if they know Me, they shall speak according to this word, without their corruption]
38 But since you [still] say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus says the LORD; Because you say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, You shall not say, The burden of the LORD;
39 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence [paniym]:
40 And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame [everlasting contempt to which the wicked awaken, as in Daniel 12:2], which shall not be forgotten.

Isaiah 29
1 Woe to Ariel [the Lion of God – the strength {understanding} of God, here taken and controlled by the wicked], to Ariel, the city where David [the lion of Judah] dwelt! add you year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel [it will again be My strength].
3 And I [as a man of war] will camp against you round about, and will lay siege against you with a mount, and I will raise forts against you.
4 And you shall be brought down, and shall speak out of the ground, and your speech shall be low out of the dust [as the voice of the serpent from the ruin of the earth], and your voice shall be, as of one that has a familiar spirit [of the known dead speaking words of death], out of the ground, and your speech shall whisper out of the dust.
5 Moreover the multitude of your strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.
6 You shall be visited [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth] of the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war] with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight [tsaba’] against Ariel, even all that fight [tsaba’] against her and her munition [matsowd – her munitions are the root, a foundation, of righteousness], and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.
8 It shall even be as when a hungry man dreams [chalam], and, behold, he eats; but he awakes, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreams [chalam], and, behold, he drinks; but he awakens, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul has appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight [tsaba’] against mount Zion [when they awaken and realize their own mind’s delusions deceived them and they have been emptied of all understanding].
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder [not knowing what you are experiencing]; cry you out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For the LORD has poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep [with no signs of life], and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers [ra’ah – those who see as God sees] has he covered [kacah].
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book [cepher] that is sealed [chatham], which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed [chatham]:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart [the foundations of their mind – their stiocheion, the elements of their understanding, are corrupt and disordered] far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous [eye opening] work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder [pele’ – at which all have wondered]: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their [wicked] counsel [‘etsah] from the LORD, and their works are in the dark [their own ignorance of reality and truth they can’t understand because it is as a foreign language], and they say, Who sees us? and who knows us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down [the overthrow] shall be esteemed as the potter’s [yatsar] clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed [yatser] say of him that framed [yatsar] it, He had no understanding?
17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon [purity seen in high places] shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words [this word] of the book [cepher], and the eyes of the blind shall see [again] out of obscurity, and out of darkness [by coming out of 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.
22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed [padah] Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale [but they will reach the end promised].
23 But when he sees his children [who have been born again out of death and hell], the work of my hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name [declare My identity Holy], 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 [against me] shall learn doctrine.

Malachi 3
1 Behold, I will send my messenger [mal’ak- My angel, who is a man of war as well as a man of God], and he shall prepare the way before me [paniym – in Him My presence is manifested]: and the LORD [‘adown – the king], whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger [mal’ak] of the covenant [of My promises], whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, says the LORD [Jehovah] of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war].
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers [using words as spells to control minds they’ve deluded], and against the adulterers [who’ve left God to follow men who’ve put themselves in His place], and against false swearers [using lies as policy by which they rule], and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages [stealing through taxation, redistribution with which they buy the souls of dead men], the widow, and the fatherless, [both having no man to protect and defend them against the evil powers] and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war].
6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed [by My fire].
7 Even from the days of your fathers you are gone away from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war]. But you said, Wherein shall we return?
8 Will a man rob God? Yet you [den of thieves] have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings [of your churches and taxes of your civil governments, by which you rob My people].
9 You are cursed with a curse: for you have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring you all the tithes [My people, the tenth that return] into the storehouse [this place where my treasures are found], that there may be meat [the flesh I quicken, who receive this word as light and life] in my house, and prove me now herewith, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war], if I will not open you the windows of heaven [and from there pour out these treasures], and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war].
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for you shall be a delightsome land, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war].
13 Your words have been stout against me, says the LORD. Yet you say, What have we spoken so much against you?
14 You have said, It is vain to serve [the living] God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war]?
15 And now we call the proud [who call this word a burden without any value] happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.
16 Then they that feared the LORD spoke often [this word from His mouth] one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name [His manifested identity].
17 And they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war], in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him.
18 Then shall you return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked [good and evil leading, choosing the good and refuse evil], between him that serves God and him that serves him not.

Isaiah 6
5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people [as serpents among us with poisonous words] of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war].
6 Then flew [with full understanding] one of the seraphims [saraph – this if the fiery serpent lifted on the pole {nec}, in Numbers 21:6 & 8, as the son of man must be lifted: describing the word of the LORD spoken through His messengers He sends, who He lifts above all other voices, and all who look to them are not brought to death by the words of the evil serpents slithering among us] unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.
8 Also I heard [shama’ – and obeyed] the voice of the LORD, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, “Hear you indeed, but understand not; and see you indeed, but perceive not.”
10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
11 Then said I, LORD, how long [will the words of the book be sealed]? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land [‘adamah – this end generation, the last that shall be the first on the new creation] be utterly desolate,
12 And the LORD have removed men far away [rachaq – this time when the earth is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men], and there be a great forsaking [‘azubah – desertion, only used here, speaking of the falling away from the LORD, into apostasy, which come upon all before we see Him again, as did Isaiah in verse 5 above] the midst of [qereb – speaking of the thought that are the belly of hell] the land [‘erets – the old and corrupt earth].
13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten [ba’ar – kindled, from the root of the tree cut down]: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

The word above, twice rendered “substance,” is the six times used Hebrew word matstsebeth, said to mean something stationed, stone(s) as a memorial. It is said to be from the word natsab, meaning a station, referring to its two uses in Deuteronomy 29:10 & 32:8.

Deuteronomy 29
9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do.
10 You stand [natsab – have been stationed here, to stand] this day all of you before [paniym – in the presence of] the LORD your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the men of Israel,
11 Your little ones, your wives, and your stranger [led by those who haven’t known Me] that is in your camp, from the hewer [who cut you down] of your wood unto the drawer [sha’ab – referring to Isaiah 12:3 and Nahum 3:14 below] of your water [this is a direct reference to Job 14:7 thru 9 below]:
12 That you shouldest enter into covenant with the LORD your God, and into his oath [’alah – this word, light, that raises man from death; and the curse to those who, hearing it, refusing to obey, choose to remain in darkness and death], which the LORD your God makes with you this day:
13 That he may establish [quwm] you today [in this time of light] for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto you a God, as he has said unto you, and as he has sworn unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath [’alah];
15 But with him that stands [‘amad – “for now we live, if we stand fast with the LORD,” 1 Thessalonians 3:8] here with us this day before [paniym – in the presence of] the LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day:
16 (For you know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations [those who didn’t know Me] which you passed by [‘abar – from which you passed from death into life by these same life given waters];
17 And you have seen their abominations [then as now], and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)
18 Lest [if you didn’t come out from among them into life] there would be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turns away this day from [not standing fast with] the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations [men who haven’t known Me]; lest there would be among you a root [of evil] that bear gall and wormwood [the poison that kills minds, making them dark: ignorant of My words and ways];
19 And it come to pass, when he hears [shama’ – and should obey] the words of this curse [‘alah], that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination [creations, opinions that are delusions chosen over reality] of my heart [minds], to add drunkenness [inability to function soberly] to thirst [come from their refusal to receive these life-giving waters]:
20 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses [‘alah] that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven.
21 And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:
22 So that the generation to [now] come of your children that shall rise up [quwm – who are established by this same light] after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far [rachowq] land [‘erets – the earth now rule by the evil decrees of wicked men in power], shall say, when they see the plagues of that land [‘erets – the earth at this moment], and the sicknesses [tachaluw – that result from famine and ends in death] which the LORD has laid [chalal, as in ta-chaluw, the disease it {ta} points out] upon it;
23 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor bears, nor any grass grows therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:
24 Even all nations [men who haven’t know Me] shall say, Wherefore, has the LORD done thus unto this land [’erets – the earth]? what means the heat [this fire, as a sword, from His mouth] of this great anger [against those choosing to continue in their evil ways that are destroying all lives, freedom, and estate upon the earth]?
25 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of [the way to sustainable peace and civilization, mutual, reciprocal, security in life, liberty, and property] the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land [‘erets] of Egypt [the tyrants and tyranny of that time]:
26 For they went [learned from] and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he [the LORD] had not given unto them:
27 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land [‘erets – the earth], to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book [sent forward, as a wheel within a wheel, a full circuit of understand, as a blessing sent, in the same course, circuit, to give the same understanding to those who will receive it as His word, rise again, and stand fast with the LORD]:
28 And the LORD rooted them [those who refuse His word, observe lying vanities, and forsaking their own mercy] out of their land [‘adamah – out of this generation the LORD is rasing in His new creation] in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land [‘erets – the hell they created on the old earth], as it is this day.

Malachi 4
1 For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war], that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name [my identity] shall the Sun [this understanding that brings the new day and unites the ONE BODY: the Church] of righteousness arise with healing [marpe’ – the cure for death] in his wings [the voice of the living, life-giving, creature: man in whom the LORD manifests His presence in four faces; in the wheel, the full circuit of establishing understanding, within the wheel, the same process explained from His written word sent forward, which is our conversation with Him, giving the strength with which we rise into heaven]; and you shall go forth, and grow up [into the same man] as calves [born again to do this same work] of the stall.
3 And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war].
4 Remember you the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb [when I untaught you the ways of oppression] for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Matthew 12
14 And if you will receive it, this is Elijah, which was for to come.
15 He that has ears to hear, let him hear.
16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,
17 And saying, We have piped unto you [sounding, saying I should bow to the image they’ve created], and you have not danced; we have mourned unto you [saying they repent while keeping the same corruption], and you have not lamented [all, by their opinions, delusions they’ve created, saying I should be doing what they have been taught I would].
18 For John came neither eating nor drinking [not accepting your corrupt ideas and ways], and they say, He has a devil.
19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:
21 Woe unto you, Chorazin [in the smoking furnace]! woe unto you, Bethsaida [the house of the fish – the houses that are the whale’s belly]! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon [those who come away from following the false rock, and those who hunt My people, catching them by the mouth as fish from the sea] at the day of judgment, than for you.
23 And you, Capernaum [to whom the Comforter has come, speaking and working unknown in their ignorance], which [to men whose words] are exalted unto heaven [saying you have your own understanding, your covenant with death, your agreement with hell], shall be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.
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 [by the words of evil men], and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light [double meaning intended].

See 9 – 13 June 2024 PART 2 OF 2

And in that day you shall say, O LORD, I will praise you: though you were angry with me, your anger is turned away, and you comforted [nacham] me.

9 – 13 June 2024 PART 2 OF 2

Isaiah 12
1 And in that day you shall say, O LORD, I will praise you: though you were angry with me, your anger is turned away, and you comforted [nacham] me.
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD [Yahh] Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become [hayah] my salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus: Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh of His chosen].
3 Therefore with joy [realizing, You have manifested Yourself into our sight] shall you draw [sha’ab] water [as I Am] out of the wells [of the good figs] of salvation [yshuw’ah].
4 And in that day shall you say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name [His identity], [open your mouths and] declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name [His identity manifested in His word from our mouths] is exalted [His word above all other].
5 Sing [repeat these same words with Me] unto the LORD [who delights in hearing them]; for he has done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
6 [Open your mouths] Cry out and shout, you inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of you.

Nahum [Nacham, The Comforter] 3
1 Woe to the bloody city [doing violence by their words]! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departs not;
2 The noise [qowl – voice] of a whip, and the noise [qowl – the voice] of the rattling [ra’ash – the voice now shaking heaven and earth, as in Ezekiel 37:7 that bring the dry bones together, the “quaking” that warns men to be careful of whose words they follow and repeat, because in these in life and death] of the wheels [‘ophan – the wheel within a wheel, which Ezekiel saw, and with opened mouth, delared], and of the pransing horses, and of the jumping chariots [all those now animated from their sleep into the battle of light against darkness, the living against those choosing to remain dead].
3 The horseman [all those on the white horses of Revelation 19] lift up both the bright sword and the glittering spear [giving, with me, this light as received]: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcasses [the animated dead flesh without the LORD Spirit]; and there is none end of their corpses; they [the animated dead] stumble upon their corpses:
4 Because of the multitude of the whoredoms [those who left God and now follow the false gods, wicked men in power] of the well favored harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts [kesheph, from kashaph, meaning “to whisper a spell, i.e. to enchant or practice magic,” as in using words as spells to manipulate and control people into doing their evil will; as do the wicked powers through their evil mouths, words heard, from their {news and social} media, the pulpits of church and state from where they broadcast and publish: whispering their manipulations, to delude the minds of their prey who obey the spells].
5 Behold, I am against you, says the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war]; and I will discover your skirts [exposing those things you think are private and no one sees] upon your face [paniym – and the evil presence possessing you shall be uncovered], and I will show the nations [those who haven’t known who possess you] your nakedness, and the kingdoms your shame [the evil end you intend but will never reach].
6 And I will cast abominable filth upon you, and make you vile, and will set you as a gazing-stock [and all shall see you as you are].
7 And it shall come to pass, that all they that look upon you shall flee from you, and say, Nineveh is laid waste [Matthews 12:41 The men of Nineveh {who rise to stand fast with the LORD} 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.]: who will bemoan her? whence shall I seek comforters [nacham] for you [who, as did Jonah, the dove, as signs of the end reached, come from the belly of hell, to call this evil generation to repentance, and lead it into all this truth]?
8 Are you better than populous No [meaning disruption, the ancient capital of Egypt], that was situated [yashab – whose dwelling] among the rivers [the waters that flow into the sea, as word to humanity at large], that had the waters [their words] round about it [cabiyb – were their evil “circuit,” producing death as its end], whose rampart [cheyl – whose army] was the sea [is humanity at large, all dead], and her wall [protection] was from the sea [the dead sea, into which {descent} the river Jordan carried all]?
9 Ethiopia and Egypt [those covered in this darkness: ignorance, and the oppression of tyrants in power] were her strength, and it was infinite; Put and Lubim [arrows of false accusation and affliction] were your helpers.
10 Yet was she carried away, she went into captivity: her young children also were dashed in pieces at the top of all the streets: and they cast lots for her honorable men, and all her great men were bound in chains.
11 You also shall be drunken: you shall be hid, you also shall seek strength because of the enemy.
12 All your strong holds shall be like fig trees with the first-ripe figs: if they be shaken, they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater.
13 Behold, your people in the midst of you are women: the gates of your land shall be set wide open unto your enemies: the fire shall devour your bars.
14 Draw [sha’ad] you waters [from the evil figs] for the siege, fortify your strong holds: go into clay, and tread the mortar, make strong the brick-kiln [the furnace].
15 There shall the fire devour you; the sword shall cut you off, it shall eat you up like the cankerworm: make yourself many as the cankerworm, make yourself many as the locusts.
16 You have multiplied your merchants above the stars of heaven: the cankerworm spoils, and flees away.
17 Your crowned are as the locusts, and your captains as the great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges in the cold day, but when the sun arises they flee away, and their place is not known where they are.
18 Your shepherds slumber [in death], O king of Assyria [communists in power]: your nobles shall dwell in the dust [the ruin of the earth under their rule]: your people are scattered upon the mountains [the now totally corrupt government institutions of church and state], and no man gathers them.
19 There is no healing of your bruise; your wound is grievous: all that hear the bruit of you shall clap the hands over you: for upon whom has not your wickedness passed continually?

Job 14
1 Man [‘adam – a human] that is born of a woman [‘ishshah; ‘iysh seh – an individual among the flock] is of few days and full of trouble [rogez – agitation that rages in his time].
2 He comes forth like a flower, and is [as a tree] cut down: he flees also as a shadow [tsel – one that is a product of a time without light], and continues not.
3 And do you open your eyes upon such a one [caught in such a time], and bring me into judgment with you?
4 Who [except you LORD, by His judgment] can [by the washing of regeneration by His word] bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one [man].
5 Seeing his days are determined [charats – have a decreed end], the number of his months are with you, you [LORD] have appointed his bounds [choq – the appointed time decreed] that he cannot pass [‘abar – that without You he cannot Passover from death into life];
6 Turn from him, that he may rest [sleep in the flesh], till he shall accomplish, as a hireling, his day [the end when the recompense comes].
7 For [as is ‘adam] there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground [‘aphar – the ashes of the earth’s ruin, from where God created the first and creates the second ‘adam];
9 Yet through the scent of water [perceiving the word of God] it will bud [be quickened to life], and bring forth boughs like a plant.
10 But man [geber – the mighty] dies, and wastes away: yea, man [‘adam] gives up the ghost [gava’ – with his last breath his unknown essence, substance, leaves his body], and where is he [no man knows]?
11 As the waters fail from the sea [as the word of God loses its original meaning, and its value is lost in the degeneration through successive generations], and the flood [of men’s corruption] decays and dries [it, understanding] up:
12 So man lies down [sleeps in death unaware], and rises not: till the heavens [all understanding] be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep [until these waters are sent from the cloud in heaven where they are reserved for this moment].
13 O that you would hide me [as You have hidden me] in the grave [sheol – in hell among the sleeping dead], that you would keep me secret, until your wrath be past [and my enemies have become my footstool], that you would appoint [as you have appointed] me a set time [choq – this decreed end], and remember me [zakar, the same {identical} word rendered male in the creation of ‘adam, and the “man child” spoken of in Isaiah 66:7, the passage saying “5 Hear the word of the LORD, you that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. 6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that renders recompense to his enemies. 7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child [zakar]. 8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. 9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says your God.”]!
14 If a man [geber] die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change [chaliyphah – speaking of changing our outer cover of flesh] come.
15 You shall call [to awaken me], and I [when I am awakened] will answer you [as You’ve commanded]: you will have a desire to the work of your hands [making me in Your image and likeness].
16 For now you number my steps [understanding the corruption picked up along the way]: do you not watch over [shamar – you don’t protect and defend] my sin [the corrupt offering of the wicked]?
17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and you sew up my iniquity [you remove {by uncovering} the things we, in our sleep, have put together: forged in Your name].
18 And surely the mountains [the high place of the earth] falling [away from good into evil] comes to naught, and the rock [the worthless governments in which the ignorant trust] is removed out of his place.
19 The waters wear the stones [that seem immovable]: [as] you [LORD] wash away the [corrupt] things which grow out of the dust [ruin] of the earth; and you [LORD] destroy the [worthless] hope of man [‘enowsh – those who remain dead flesh, waiting for their promised utopia which is now realized to be hell].
20 You prevail [taqaph] forever against him, and he passes: you change [shanah – duplicate] his countenance [paniym], and send him away [into ignorance of his own presence in hell].
21 His sons come to honor, and he knows it not; and they are brought low, but he perceives it not of them [knowing not that he is them in hell].
22 But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his [unknown] soul within him shall mourn.

The word matstsebeth only appears four times, in addition to the two above in Isaiah 6:13. It’s first used in Genesis 35:14 & 20, speaking of the “pillar” Jacob set up at Bethel, the place where the LORD spoke to him and renamed him Israel; and of the “pillar” he set (natsab) in the way to Ephrath (Ephraim), upon Rachel’s grave (qbuwrah), where she died in birthing Benjamin.

The other two (uses of matstsebeth) are in in 2 Samuel 18:18, where we’re told of when Absalom “reared up” (natsab), a “pillar” to himself.

These speak of the time and place of the stand (natsab), the same stand Daniel foretold, the harvest (judgment) wherein Jeremiah and Amos saw baskets of summer fruit, both evil and good figs, who are the sons of light and darkness now awakened in this battle at Armageddon: this mountain (har) of the rendezvous (Megiddo), in this appointed time, in the plain (sight) of Jezreel (when the LORD plants His new creation in the earth).

Daniel 12
1 And at that time shall Michael [who is like God] stand up, the great prince which stands for the children of your people: and there shall be a time of trouble [tsarah – tribulation], such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book [when it is again opened].
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust [ruin] 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 [this understanding] of the firmament [from this exposition, where the water below are separate from the LORD’s word above, which He tells us is heaven]; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars [lights in the darkness] forever and ever.
4 But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end [qets – as it has been]: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased [as it is].
5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood [‘amad] other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river [the senders of this word forward], and the other on that side of [the receiver of this world sent] the bank of the river.
6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end [qets] of these wonders [things wondered about]?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that lives forever that it shall be for a time [mow’ed – this appointed time], times [mow’ed – of the congregation, when the LORD assembles His army against the army of darkness], and a half [chetsiy – to split open, when this word is rightly divided again]; and when he shall have accomplished [kalah] to scatter the power of the holy people [as it is], all these things shall be [as they are] finished [kalah].

Amos 8
1 Thus has the LORD God [‘Adonay Jehovih – the King of king and LORD of LORDs] showed unto me: and behold a basket [klub – other than here, it only appears once, in Jeremiah 5:27] 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 [qets] is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by [‘abar] them any more [this is the time I raise to life from the dead those I’ve predestined].
3 And the songs [the words repeated] of the temple shall be howling [of vexation to understand this report, to hear it as the voice of the LORD] in that day [this time when light, understanding that is life, has come], says the LORD God: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence [because they refuse to hear this word as the LORD’s and therefore speak it, exalting it above all other voices, as He commands].
4 Hear [shama’ – and obey] this, O you that swallow up [into the belly of hell] the needy [who need to hear this word, these good tidings, of the LORD’s presence], even to make the poor of the land [‘erets – the earth] to fail,
5 Saying, When will the new moon [the LORD’s new government, present on the earth] be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath [this interruption of the work and words of those misleading God’s people, taking them off course into blindness], that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah [the standard of equal justice] small, and the shekel [the bribes of betrayal] great [to outweigh justice], and falsifying the balances by deceit?

Jeremiah 5
26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait [conspire evil], as he that sets snares [for the innocent]; they set a trap, they catch men.
27 As a cage [klub] is full of birds [as a basket of summer fruit in this time of harvest: judgment], so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great [by falsifying the balance], and waxen rich [through the bribes they receive to do so and betray humanity into self-destruction].
28 They are waxen fat [prosper in this evil they perpetrate], they shine [the wicked word of deception upon all, calling their lies “news” and the truth “disinformation”]: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless [without any man to protect and defend them], yet they prosper [in their evil]; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
29 Shall I not visit [paqad – manifest My presence as I have, as the Chief Overseer of the earth, and the kinsman redeemer of My family] for these things? says the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation [the people who haven’t known Me or My ways] as this?
30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land [‘erets – the earth];
31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their [deceitful] means; and my people love to have it so: and what will you do in the end thereof [‘achariyth – these last days, of which all, except My chosen, are ignorant]?

Deuteronomy 32
3 Because I will publish the name [the present identity] of the LORD: 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 [mark of injustice] is not the spot [mark of justice and righteousness] of his children: they [the wicked in power and those who obey them] are a perverse and crooked generation.
6 Do you thus requite [gamal – treat wrongfully] the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he your father that has bought you? has he not made you, and established [kuwn] you?
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 [as they here do testify in these words written and sent to you].
8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds [natsab gbuwlah – this appointed time in which we, the LORD’s army, stand against the army of darkness] 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 [His estate].
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple [‘iyshown – His pupil] of his eye [who He has taught to see as He sees].
11 As an eagle [the final face of, manifested presence of the LORD, the life-giving creature {man} Ezekiel saw in the wheel within the wheel] stirs up her nest, flutter [rachaph – as His Almighty Spirit, the LORD present and unknown, moved upon the waters of the darkened deep] over her young, spreads abroad her wings [makes His voice from their heard], takes them, bears them on her wings [carrying them into heaven]:
12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

The deeper meaning in the word matstsebeth, is found in its affinity to the two words matsa and tsaba’, as in Isaiah 29 above. This word (tsaba’) is the same as the word (6635) rendered “hosts,” when speaking of the LORD as the commander of this (His) army

The Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary definitions of these words are:

Strong’s #4672: matsa’: a primitive root; properly, to come forth to, i.e. appear or exist; transitively, to attain, i.e. find or acquire; figuratively, to occur, meet or be present.

Strong’s #6633: tsaba’: a primitive root; to mass (an army or servants):– assemble, fight, perform, muster, wait upon, war.

Isaiah 31
4 For thus has the LORD spoken [as the Lion of Judah roaring] unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of [corrupt] shepherds [ra’ah – the blind who call themselves “seers”] is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war] come down to fight [tsaba’] for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
5 As birds flying [with full understanding], so will the LORD of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war] defend [New Heavenly] Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it [natsal – the same as the Greek word harpazo, rendered “caught up” in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, and “pulled” from the fires in Jude 1:23 – used in Zechariah 3:2, as the LORD rebukes Satan, who is resisting the LORD as He is cleansing the priesthood, there called Joshua {Jesus}, speaking of the dead body of Christ raised again, saying “And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke you, O Satan; even the LORD that has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you: is not this a brand plucked {natsal} out of the fire?]; and passing over [forgiving those marked with this sacrifice heard from them] he will preserve [malat – rescue] it.
6 Turn you unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.
7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.
8 Then shall the Assyrian [the communists in power] fall with the sword [this word heard from our mouths], not of a mighty man; and the sword [this word], not of a mean man, [but this word heard] shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword [of the LORD, from His mouth], and his young men shall be discomfited.
9 And he shall pass over to [remain in death] his strong hold [lies and deception] for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign [nec – the son of man lifted as Moses lifted the fiery serpent in the wilderness, where His word is exalted], says the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in [New Heavenly] Jerusalem.

These above verses (of Isaiah 31) refer to what Jeremiah speaks of in Jeremiah 49:19 & 50:44, referring to this end the LORD spoke of in Jeremiah 12:5, both the latter passages identically (except for the word “against”) saying, “Behold, he [the LORD] shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan [the pride of those whose words carried all in the descent into death] against the habitation of the strong: but I will suddenly make him [the wicked in power] run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint [paqad – as Chief Overseer in whom I manifest My presence and exercising My authority] over her? for who is [as Michael] like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd [ra’ah – a seer seeing as I see] that will stand [‘amad] before me [paniym – as My presence]?”

And to those, as Absalom, in revolt: Christians and Jews who now say they have no king except the god their religions created, who charge you to hear (and obey) their advice, thus says the LORD, “You say, Prophesy not against God’s people, and drop not your word against the house of His promise. Therefore, thus says Jehovah: Those who follow you shall be unfaithful in this nation I have given them, and those you have raised shall fall by this word you and, therefore, they refuse, and humanity in this generation shall be divided by your incorrect assessment; and you shall remain dead in this last generation corrupted by the words and ways of your kind: and My people shall surely go into captivity, their minds will be captivated by My truth, in this new generation I Am creating.”

Amos 9
1 I saw [ra’ah – as the LORD sees] the LORD [‘Adonay – the King of kings] standing [natsab – to lead His army] upon the altar [the power found in His sacrifice]: and he said, Smite [with this word] the lintel [kaphtor – the capital of their pillar] of the door, that the posts[caph – referring to Isaiah 6:4, speaking of what occurs just before Isaiah sees the LORD; saying “And the posts of the door {caph} moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.”] may shake [ra’ash – shaking that brings the dead bones together to life as they stand as the LORD’s army {Ezekiel 37:7 – 10}; here a different version of the word that tells of the noise {qowl – voice} of the fall of Babylon, by which all the earth is “moved,” as in Hebrews 12:25 – 29}]: and cut them in the head [mark them by their evil thoughts heard from their evil mouths {Jeremiah 50:46}], all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword [the word of the LORD from His mouth and my hand]: he that flees [this word, as mentioned above] of them shall not flee away, and he that escapes of them shall not be delivered [malat]
2 Though they dig into hell [sheol], thence shall my hand take them; though they climb up to heaven [saying they have understanding], thence will I [by their own errors] bring them down:
3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel [as serpents slithering in My garden among My people], I will search [their hearts: minds] and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight [the eyes of My people] in the bottom of the sea [among humanity, unseen in the darkened deep], thence will I command the serpent [the son of man lifted up to save those who look to him from the serpents slithering among them], and he shall bite them [with this word of the LORD, as a sword from My mouth]:
4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set my eyes upon them for [to destroy them by their own] evil, and not for good [they reject].
5 And the LORD God of hosts [tsaba’ – I Am, a man of war] is he that touches the land [‘erets – the earth], and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein [the old and corrupt heaven and earth] shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood [of their own evil words against them]; and shall be drowned [chocked by their own words], as by the flood of Egypt [these tyrants in sheep’s clothing among My flock, feeding themselves from the flock they fear losing].
6 It is he that builds his stories [ma’alah – His way of rising] in the heaven [by full understanding given from the LORD], and has founded his troop [ONE BODY] in the earth; he that calls for the waters of the sea [His word to be heard by all humanity], and pours them out upon the face of [paniym – as His presence manifested on] the earth [‘erets]: The LORD is his name.
7 Are you [misleaders who refuse this light] not as children of the Ethiopians [brought up in darkness: the ignorance that now covers the earth] unto me, O children of Israel? says the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land [‘erets] of Egypt [of tyrants]? and the Philistines from Caphtor [removed the crown of the invading army mixed among you], and the Syrians from Kir [and removed the protection of those who exalt their words above the words of God]?
8 Behold, the eyes of the LORD God [‘Adonay Jehovih – the King of kings and LORD of LORDs] are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of [paniym – by My presence manifested in My word] the earth [‘adamah – from this new generation I Am creating], 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 [and I will save My elect remnant, the tenth, the tithe brought into My storehouse], like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth [‘erets – the new earth].
10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword [the word from My mouth, which they refuse and thereby choose self-condemnation], 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; 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 them], and of all the heathen [those who haven’t 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 [the old and corrupt heaven and earth, plowing them under as a corrupt crop] shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed [of corruption]; and the mountains [the new government of God] shall drop sweet wine [He is treading out], and all the hills [the old and corrupt places risen over the earth] 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 [‘adamah – as My new generation], and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land [‘adamah – this new life into which I have raised them] which I have given them, says the LORD your God.

Matthew 7
13 Enter you in [into His presence] at the strait [stenos – avoiding the obstacles that attempt to block the] gate: for wide [platus – only used here, the same as plasso and plastos, meaning fabricated, fictitious, falsely formed] is the gate, and broad [euruchoros {eu-rhume-chora} – only used here, meaning crowding good into emptiness: making it without form] is the way, that leads [apago] to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait [stenos – wrought with these obstacles] is the gate, and narrow [thlibo – crowded with those who put their opinions in the place of truth] is the way, which leads [apago] unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets [speaking in the LORD’s name, or in the name of some other god they put in His place], which come to you in sheep’s clothing [disguised as a friend or neighbor, saying they are at peace with you, while they war against us, our better culture, and our nation], but inwardly they are ravening wolves [who will turn on you, and as the swine mentioned above, rend you: scattering you from the LORD and His ONE BODY, which only a chosen few find].
16 You shall know them by their fruits [karpos – the foundations of their mind revealed in their conversation]. Do men gather grapes of thorns [misleaders], or figs of thistles [deceivers]?
17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit [karpos]; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit [karpos].
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit [karpos], neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit [karpos].
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit [karpos] is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits [karpos] you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven [bringing forth the good fruit He has given us and commanded us to give as received].
22 Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you [I was never, and I Am not now, joined with you in your own evil works against me and My flock]: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a Rock [the sons from whom the Father’s word flows]:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock.
26 And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand [ammos – a-momos, only used five times, meaning they are those claiming they are flawless: infallible, as do the many religious of our time, saying they are without a beam in their eye]:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes [the know-it-alls].

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

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

4 – 7 June 2024

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

The LORD begins today in the above, Proverbs 25:11, leading us into its deeper, below-surface meaning.

The word rendered “apple” is the six-times-used word tappuwach, always rendered apple(s). We briefly mentioned it (tappuwach) in the post of 1 March 2024, as it appears in Song of Solomon 8:5, where it says under this (“apple”) tree God’s people are brought forth into the birth.

From that post:

Song of Solomon 8
1 O that you were as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother [wisdom taught, of the ancient things reserved for this time of war]! when I should find you without, I would kiss you; yea, I should not be despised [by you, if you had the same upbringing as I].
2 I would lead you, and bring you into my mother’s [wisdom’s] house, who would instruct me: I would cause you to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate.
3 His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.
4 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you stir not up [‘uwr – opening the eyes], nor awake [‘uwr] my love, until he please [for your own sake].
5 Who is this that comes up [‘alah – rises] from the wilderness [where we unlearn the corrupt ways that brought us there], leaning upon [trusting] her beloved [dowd]? I raised you up [‘uwr – opened your eyes and awakened you from death] under the apple tree [tappuwach – by words fitly spoken, see the same word in Proverbs 25:11, saying, “A word fitly spoken is like apples {tappuwach} of gold in pictures {thoughts} of silver.”]: there your mother brought you forth [into life]: there she brought you forth that bare you.
6 Set me as a seal [chowtham] upon your heart [My signature pressed into your mind, by My authority alone], as a seal [chowtham] upon your arm [doing My work]: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave [sheol – hell]: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which has a most vehement flame.
7 Many waters [worthless word of men] cannot quench love, neither can the floods [of men’s words] drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love [of God which he alone gives as a gift to those of a pure mind], it [man’s bribe] would utterly be contemned.

It (tappuwach} also appears in Song of Solomon 7:8, a chapter discussed in the post of 29 May 2024, as follows, including Proverbs 25 & Jeremiah 24, with today’s additions in double brackets.

Proverbs 25
11 A word fitly spoken is like apples [[tappuwach]] of gold in pictures [[maskiyth]] of silver.
12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament [chaliy – only appearing here and in Song of Solomon 7:1] of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient [shama’] ear [pierced by wise words fitly spoken, which enter the mind and are heard from the mouth of faithful messengers].
13 As the cold of snow [this word reserved in heaven] in the time of harvest [this time of judgment], so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Song of Solomon 7
1 How beautiful are your feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! the joints of your thighs are like jewels [chaliy – as the obedient joined with a wise reprover], the work of the hands of a cunning workman [‘aman – meaning “an expert,” a trainer, a master-builder].
2 Your navel is like a round goblet, which wants [chacer – lacks] not liquor: your belly [this hell we are in] is like a heap of wheat set [God’s protected people] about with lilies [who hear His voice as the last trumpet sounding].
3 Your two breasts are like two young roes that are twins. [ta’own – other than here and above, only use twice, in Genesis 25:25 & 38:27, the first speaking of Jacob and Esau, the other of Tamar’s children Pharez (breach) and Zarah (rising) whose hand came out of the womb {beten – belly, like hell, were the living unborn wait to be born again: raised} and a scarlet thread was tied around his hand {work} before he pulled it back and his brother was born first. As we know, Tamar {palm tree} and her two children are mentioned in Matthew’s recording of Jesus’ blood line {generation}, which he records {Matthew 1:3} continuing through Pharez. The LORD’s blood line continues in Zarah, in His resurrection, referred to in the only use of the word zerach {meaning “a rising of light”}, from where the name comes. Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen {zarach – from zerach} upon you. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise {zarach} upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising {zerach}.]
4 Your neck is as a tower of ivory [words waiting to be spoken were seen coming and are in your mouth as teeth with which you devour dead flesh]; your eyes like the fish-pools in Heshbon [the things you’ve seen, life below these written words’ surface, are your stronghold], by the gate of Bathrabbim [the way out of hell into heaven for the multitude of scattered churches]: your nose is as the tower of Lebanon [perceiving these things as purity from the Highest] which looks toward Damascus [is sight for those who remain drunken with pride and therefore silent in sorrow].
5 Your head [leadership] upon you is like Carmel [is a nation of gardens], and the hair of your head [this understanding that has enlarged your mind] like purple [of a virtuous woman: church]; the king is held in the galleries [the king is there joined with you in this watering].
6 How fair and how pleasant are you, O love, for delights!
7 This your stature [gowmah – highness] is like to a palm tree [tamar], and your breasts [your nourishing your children] to clusters of grapes.
8 I said, I will go up to the palm tree [tamar], I will take hold of the boughs thereof: now also your breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of your nose [your deep perception] like apples [[[tappuwach]] the fruit of a good tree];
9 And the roof of your mouth [speaking this word] like the best wine for my beloved, that goes down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
10 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me [I and the children the LORD has given me].
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field [the earth wherein the LORD has planted us]; let us lodge in the villages.
12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth [as in Luke 21:29, when we see the fig tree and all the trees, bring forth new life, you know the kingdom of God is at hand]: there will I give you my loves.
13 The mandrakes [duwday – the baskets of fruit] give a smell [by which we perceive its presence], and at our gates [this word of God] are all manner of pleasant [meged] fruits, new and old, which I have laid up [tsaphan – as treasure reserved for this moment] for you, O my beloved [dowd – David, I Am].

Jeremiah 24
1 The LORD showed me, and, behold, two baskets [duwday] of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon [the lies of false prophets and false teachers that carried all into the desolation and confusion that now rules the world] had carried away captive Jeconiah [who Jehovah will establish] the son of Jehoiakim [who Jehovah raises up] king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon [to this world ruled by confusion and delusion].
2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are [now] first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty [ra’ – evil] figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad [roa’].
3 Then said the LORD unto me, What see you, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil [ra’], very evil [ra’], that cannot be eaten, they are so evil [roa’].
4 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans [among those using the word to oppress and manipulate into evil] for their good.
6 For I will set my eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land [‘erets – the new earth]: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
7 And I will give them a heart [a mind] to know me, that I Am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart [mind].

The word (tappuwach} appears two other times in Song of Solomon (2:3 & 5), and once more in Joel 1:12, along with tamar.

Son of Solomon 2
1 I am the rose [chabatstseleth – only used twice, from the words chabats and tsalal, meaning the one who “threshes” and makes the ears of those hearing “tingle;” referring to its one other use, in Isaiah 35:1] of Sharon [in plain sight], and the lily of the valleys [as a trumpet to the lowly].
2 As the lily [a trumpet] among thorns [among misleaders], so is my love [these words given as a trumpet] among the daughters [the church of God].
3 As the apple tree [tappawuch – taphas puwach: wielding these utterances to kindle a fire, My Spirit, in man] among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons [of God]. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
4 He brought me to the banqueting [yayin – wine] house [of this feast], and his banner over me was love.
5 Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples [tappawach – wielding these utterances to kindle a fire]: for I am sick of love.
6 His left hand is under my head, and his right hand does embrace me.
7 I charge you, O you daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes [by our multitude, as an army, swelled into conspicuousness by the LORD’s glory], and by the hinds of the field [raised by the LORD’s strengthening], that you stir not up, nor awake [‘uwr] my love, till he please.
8 The voice [qowl] of my beloved [duwd]! behold, he comes leaping [dalag, a five times used word referring us to its use in Isaiah 35:6 where the reason for leaping is given as the blind seeing, the deaf hearing, and the dumb singing, by these rivers of living water that flow from the LORD] upon the mountains [from His new government here on the earth], skipping [qaphats – when iniquity stopped her mouth, referring to Job 5:16] upon the hills.

Job 5
3 I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.
4 His children [learning and following fool’s foolishness] are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate [trying to leave hell and enter heaven], neither is there any to deliver them [from death].
5 Whose harvest [of evil fruit] the hungry [looking for truth and true knowledge] eat up, and taketh it [teaching] even out of the thorns [misleaders, the foolish in power], and the robber swallow up their substance [life, liberty, and property {estate}].
6 Although affliction comes not forth of the dust [not created by the ruin of the earth], neither does trouble spring out of the ground [‘adamah – it’s planted in the many generations before it culminates];
7 Yet man [in this final generation] is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward [raised in the flames and destroyed in the darkness].
8 I would seek [darash – and follow] unto God [threading His paths and frequenting His good advice], and unto God would I commit my cause [dibrah – end, order, estate]
9 Which does great things and unsearchable; marvelous [eye opening] things without number:
10 Who gives rain [His word from heaven: full understanding manifesting His presence to those who receive it and Him] upon the earth [‘erets – shinning it upon all], and sends waters upon the fields [to bring new life on this third day of His new creation]:
11 To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn [realizing the men who lead the earth have again made it without form, and void: confused and empty] may be exalted [by His word and His understanding] to safety.
12 He disappoints the devices [the evil the wicked in power have contrived and conspired against all humanity] of the crafty [devils who’ve crafted these things], so that their hands [their works, what they produce] cannot perform their enterprise.
13 He taketh the [self-proclaimed] wise in their own craftiness [’orem – only used here, meaning stratagem]: and the counsel of the froward [who twist and pervert truth] is carried headlong [quickening their end].
14 They meet with darkness [their own ignorance and confusion] in the day time [when this understanding again shines on the earth], and grope in the noonday as in the night.
15 But he saves the poor from the sword [the words and work of the wicked in power], from [the words of] their mouth, and from the [works of the] hand of the mighty.
16 So the poor [without worldly power] has hope, and iniquity stops [qaphats] 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 [by the consequence of man’s own wickedness], and binds up [by His righteousness freely given]: he wounds [the wicked by their own evil], and his hands make whole [those who receive His word and work of correction].

Isaiah 35
1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose [chabatstseleh – threshing that makes the ears of those hearing it tingle].
2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy [realizing it is the LORD’s presence manifested] and singing [repeating His word He’s given us]: the glory of Lebanon [His purity exalted on High] shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon [this land of gardens plainly seen], they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
3 Strengthen [with My understanding] you the weak hands [whose works weaken not strengthen], and confirm [‘amats – alert and make courageous] the feeble knees [bent to the confusion and wickedness of this evil generation].
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap [dalag] as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb [silent] sing: for in the wilderness shall [these living] waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons [tan – men as serpents and whales whose wide open mouth devour men and swallow them into death and hell], where each lay, shall be grass [sprung forth on this third day from the LORD’s watering and light from heaven] with reeds and rushes [the sea’s, edge, where the waves of the proud, the wicked in power, are stayed].
8 And a highway [into heaven] shall be there, and a way [to pass from hell into heaven, from death into life], and it shall be called The way of [the LORD’s] holiness; the unclean [corruption] shall not pass over it [‘abar – from death into life]; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring [halak – who’ve walked their own ways, of] men, though [they have been] fools, shall not err therein.
9 No lion [men roaring as the proud waves of the sea] shall be there, nor any ravenous beast [men without My Spirit] shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed [of the LORD] shall walk there:
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs [repeating these words the LORD has given us] and everlasting joy [realization of His presence manifested in His word] upon their heads [in their minds]: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Joel 1
1 The word of the LORD that came to Joel [Jehovah is God] the son of Pethuel [again manifested into our sight – to the “enlarged of God” who receive the “vision of God”}.
2 Hear this, you old men, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land [‘erets – the earth]. Has this been [hayah – become] in your days, or even in the days of your fathers [who’ve come before you and destroyed this understanding]?
3 Tell you your children of it [this manifestation], and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation [that it is never again forgotten].
4 That which [over the many years before you] the palmerworm has left has the locust eaten; and that which the locust has left has the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm has left has the caterpillar eaten.
5 Awake [from the sleep in death this destruction of understanding My presence has caused], you drunkards, and weep; and howl, all you drinkers of wine [that changed your mind into ignorance of Me], because of the new wine [this pure word threshing from the mouth of the LORD]; for it is cut off from your mouth [because you refuse to receive it as His and His presence manifested in me, in all who, according to it, speak].
6 For a nation [those who haven’t known me] is come up upon my land [‘erets – My earth], strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion [devouring flesh], and he has the cheek teeth of a great lion [speaking great swelling words of pride against the LORD].
7 He [the wicked in power] has laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he has made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
8 Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.
9 The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD’s ministers, mourn.
10 The field [of the LORD’s planting] is wasted, the land [‘adamah – this generation] mourns; for the corn [all the prosperity that comes under God] is wasted: the new wine [this word of My threshing] is dried up, the oil [of this anointing] languishes.
11 Be you ashamed, O you husbandmen; howl, O you vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.
12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languish [all God’s people]; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree [tamar] also, and the apple tree [tappawuch – wielding these utterances to kindle a fire, My Spirit, in man], even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy [realizing My presence by an awakened mind] is withered away from the sons of men.
13 Gird yourselves, and lament, you priests: howl, you ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, you ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withheld [by you] from the house of your God. [2 Thessalonians 2: 6 And now you know what withholds {katecho – lets until they are taken out of the way} that he might be revealed in his time.}
14 Sanctify you a fast [abstaining from your own words], call a solemn assembly [into MY ONE BODY], gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land [‘erets – the earth] into the house of [to join in His family under] the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,
15 Alas for the day [this time of light come]! for the day of the LORD is at hand [here and now], and as a destruction [of death] from the Almighty shall it come.
16 Is not the meat [the understanding of man] cut off before our eyes, yea [it is], joy and gladness from the house of our God?
17 The seed [of the wicked] is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered.
18 How do the beasts [without My Spirit] groan! the herds of cattle [my flock under these beasts] are perplexed, because they have no [good] pasture; yea [because they refuse this word], the flocks of sheep are made desolate.
19 O LORD, to you will I cry: for the fire has devoured the [corrupt] pastures of the wilderness, and the flame has burned all the trees of the field.
20 The beasts [those without Your Spirit] of the field cry also unto you: for [by their withholding Your words, refusing to give them as received] the rivers of [these living] waters are dried up, and the fire has devoured the [corrupt] pastures of the wilderness [of the desolate].

Jeremiah 19
1 Thus says the LORD, Go and get a potter’s earthen [cheres – referring to its one other use in Jeremiah, in Jeremiah 32:14, wherein is the evidence sealed and open of the purchase of the field, the right to redeem those the LORD planted in the earth, which is broken, opened, before these same ancients] bottle [baqbuk], and take of the ancients of the people, and of the ancients of the priests;
2 And go forth unto the valley of the son of Hinnom [Gehenna – the children of hell, where the carcasses of dead animals were burned in the fire that were always there burning, as mentioned in Hebrews 13:11], which is by the entry of the east gate [between heaven and hell], and proclaim there the words that I shall tell you,
3 And say, Hear you the word of the LORD, O [ancient – old and corrupt] kings of Judah, and [ancient – old and corrupt] inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever hears, his ears shall tingle [tsalal – the four times used word, meaning “to tingle, i.e. rattle together (as the ears in reddening with shame, or the teeth in chattering with fear):–quiver, tingle.” ].
4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents [as it is this day];
5 They have built also the high places of Baal [the gods they created and put in My place], to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal [in Gehenna: hell], which I commanded not, nor spoke it, neither came it into my mind:
6 Therefore, behold, the days [this understanding as light, has] come, says the LORD, that this place shall no more be called Tophet [the place where hell’s fires always burn], nor The valley of the son of Hinnom [Gehenna, where the children of hell abide], but The valley of slaughter.
7 And I will make void the counsel of [old and corrupt] Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcasses will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven [as in Revelation 19:17], and for the beasts of the earth.
8 And I will make this city [old and corrupt Jerusalem, and her current crop of corrupt and thereby feckless leaders] desolate, and a hissing [and I will, have, drawn all the world’s attention to them and their wickedness]; every one that passes thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof. [Revelation 18; 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.]
9 And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness [oppression], wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten [oppress] them.
10 Then shall you break the bottle [baqbuk] in the sight of the men that go with you,
11 And shall say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaks a potter’s vessel, that cannot be made whole again [as when what is sealed therein is revealed and can never a be hidden]: and they shall bury them in Tophet [the place in hell where the fires always burn], till there be no place to bury [in the grave: hell].
12 Thus will I do unto this place, says the LORD, and to the inhabitants thereof, and even make this city [old and corrupt Jerusalem] as Tophet:
13 And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of [the army of the] heaven [corrupted], and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.
14 Then came Jeremiah from Tophet [out of the fires of hell, which have no power over me], whither the LORD had sent him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the LORD’s house; and said to all the people,
15 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns all the evil that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their necks, that they might not hear [shama’ – obey] my words.

Revelation 19
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God [upon the horse].
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean [the purity by which we see God].
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls [as eagles with full understanding] that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast [Babylon – the Satan possessed powers that rule the world] was taken, and with him the false prophet[s] that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark [of possession] of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone [which came from the mouths of the Lamb and the elect remnant].
21 And the [evil possessed] remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls [as eagles] were filled with their flesh.

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

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

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

To the Chief Musician, on Ngiynah, (when He, as the Chief Overseer of the earth, has struck down the enemies as if a stringed instrument.)

1 Samuel 3
1 And the child Samuel [shmuw’el – those who will hear the voice of God, and obey when they realize it is His presence manifested with them, in them] ministered unto the LORD before [paniym] Eli [when the LORD’s presence was still with the old priesthood]. And the word of the LORD was precious [yakar – of the greatest value] in those days [at that time when the LORD’s light was present]; there was no open [parats – breach in] vision [and the LORD was seen: understood].
2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli [the old priesthood] was laid down [deceased] in his place, and his eyes [seing the LORD] began to wax dim, that he could not see;
3 And ere the lamp of God [showing all the way forward] went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was [in Shiloh: peace], and Samuel [hose hearing the voice of the LORD, through the priesthood] was laid down to sleep;
4 That the LORD [directly] called Samuel [to hear and obey Him, to understand, the voice heard from the priesthood, the light bearers, was always His, repeated as received by the Chief Priest]: and he answered, Here am I.
5 And he ran unto Eli [the old priesthood, fallen into blinding corruption], and said, Here am I; for you called me. And he said, I called not; lie down again [go back to sleep]. And he went and lay down.
6 And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for you did call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again [and go back to sleep].
7 Now Samuel [those hearing His voice] did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him [to be His presence to him speaking].
8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for you did call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.
9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call you, that you shall say, Speak, LORD; for your servant hears {shama’ – and obeys]. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for your servant hears [shama’ – and obeys Your voice as Your presence with me speaking].
11 And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that hears [shmama’ – obeys] it [as My voice] shall tingle [tsalal].
12 In that day I will perform against Eli [the old and corrupt priesthood] all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end [kalah].
13 For I have told him that I will judge his house forever for the iniquity which he knows; because his sons made themselves vile [cursed God], and he restrained them not. [1 Samiel 2:12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.]
14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli’s house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering [which the sons of Eli robbed from the LORD and consumed raw] forever.
15 And Samuel [who heard the voice of the LORD] lay until the morning [until he understood it and rose up], and opened the doors of the house of the LORD [to let His light enter]. And Samuel feared to show Eli [the priests] the vision [of God whom he saw].
16 Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I.
17 And he said, What is the thing that the LORD has said unto you? I pray you hide it not from me: God do so to you, and more also, if you hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto you.
18 And Samuel told him every whit [every thought, as I Am telling the current crop of corrupt and blind priests], and hid nothing from him. And he said, It is the LORD: let him do what seems him good.
19 And Samuel [those who with me hear the voice of the LORD speaking, knowing it is His presence manifested with us, in us] grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.
20 And all Israel from Dan [the time when this judgment sprang forth] even to Beersheba [the well of sevenfold oaths – when all the LORD’s promises are manifested into fulfillment] knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.
21 And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh [as foretold in Genesis 49:10, in these last days]: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel [to those who hear and obey His voice] in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.

Genesis 49
1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days [‘achariyth].
2 Gather yourselves together [at this harvest], and hear [shama’ – obey {the first things that befall them: they’re scattered and not obeying}], you sons of Jacob; and hearken [shama’] unto Israel your father.

8 Judah [the leaders God chooses], 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 [yiqqahah] of the people be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine [to this life that flows from His teaching], and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine [this is speaking of the lowly {Zechariah 9:9}, God’s elect remnant, outside the established sects, bound until Shiloh comes, when they are loosed]; he washed his garments [of corruption] in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes [this wrath against those who’ve rejected His word]:

18 (I have waited for [qavah – expected] your salvation [yshuw’ah – Joshua, Jesus, the child of Joseph], O LORD.)

22 Joseph is a fruitful bough [parah ben – fruitful son], even a fruitful bough [parah ben – fruitful son] 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, lords of this world, whose teaching has blinded all from seeing the Father, in the son, the seed of the woman 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 [barak] you with blessings [brakah] of heaven above, blessings [brakah] of the deep that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings [brakah] of the breasts, and of the womb [seed, the son]:
26 The blessings [brakah] of your father have prevailed above the blessings [brakah] of my progenitors [all those who have come before us, and were only blessed with part of what is perfected in our return to the LORD] unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they [these blessings] shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from [naziyr] his brethren.
27 Benjamin [the last child born through the LORD’s blessing upon Shiloh, the seed of Joseph – the right hand of God’s power] shall ravin as a wolf [shall tear in pieces the wolf that has scattered the one flock]: in the morning he shall devour [‘akal – with this word of understanding the LORD with us has given him] the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. [These last words refer us to Maher-shalal-hash-baz, the son spoken of in the beginning of Isaiah 8, his name meaning he hastes to the spoil and is quick to the prey. He is the son, foretold as coming through the virgin, later called Immanuel, as the advice, teaching, of the LORD comes, when men have formed a confederacy listening to the dead gods of the world.]

In 1 Samuel, in the two chapters before the above, the parents of Samuel are described in their names (Hannah from chanan, and Elkanah), meaning to “move to favor by petition” (seen in 1 Samuel 1:26 – 28); and “God has possessed” and “God has created.” Their home is in Ramah, from where, in Jeremiah 31:15, Rachel is heard lamenting her children (Ephraim, the seed of Joseph described above) because they are not yet brought forth to life (created – Shiloh again come).

1 Chronicles 5
1 Now the sons of Reuben [the pattern of the son of perdition, who doesn’t remain] 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 Rachel]: 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 [as redeemer and king] was Joseph’s:)

1 Samuel 2 begins with a prayer, by Hannah, giving the pattern of Ephraim, from whom David was (is) born (don’t oppose this with your corrupt understanding of the genealogy while ignoring the rightly ordered unifying awareness God has given us), the seed of Joseph, from where comes those hearing the voice of the LORD, the child Shiloh, Joshua the perpetual son of Nun, Jesus: Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh of His chosen and declared son (children).

1 Samuel 2
1 And Hannah prayed [and the LORD heard her petition and, as here, sent His grace, His word to her], and [she] said, My heart rejoices in the [presence of the] LORD [in His answer, in His word], my horn is exalted in the LORD [above those who oppose me]: my mouth is enlarged [with Your words] over my enemies; because I rejoice [realized Your presence] in your salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus: Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh].
2 There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside you: neither is there any Rock like our God.
3 [let us all] Talk no more so exceeding proudly [exalting our own words above the words of the LORD]; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him [His vision] actions are weighed [in this judgment].
4 The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded [corrected and prepared] with strength [His understanding].
5 They that were full [with this understanding] have hired out themselves for bread [to please men]; and they that were hungry [for this word of God] ceased [from hungering and received this word]: so that the barren [‘aqar – whose children are yet to be born; like Rachel, referring to its use in Isaiah 54:1, saying “Sing, O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, says the LORD.”] has born seven; and she {the desolate} that has many children is waxed feeble.
6 The LORD kills, and makes alive: he bringeth down to the grave [sheol – hell], and brings up.
7 The LORD makes poor, and makes rich: he bringeth low, and lifts up.
8 He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, and he has set the world upon them.
9 He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness [in ignorance]; for by [worldly] strength shall no man prevail [against the Almighty].
10 The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them [with this voice]: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth [ending the old and corrupt and beginning the new]; and he shall give strength unto his king [I Am], and exalt the horn of his anointed [I Am].
11 And Elkanah [“God has possessed” and “God has created”] went to Ramah to his house. And the child did minister unto the LORD before Eli the priest.
12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.

30 Wherefore the LORD God of Israel says, I said indeed that your house, and the house of your father, should walk before me forever: but now the LORD says, Be it far from me; for them that honor me I will honor, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
31 Behold, the days come, that I will cut off your arm, and the arm of your father’s house, that there shall not be an old man in your house.
32 And you shall see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an old man in your house forever.
33 And the man of your, whom I shall not cut off from my altar, shall be to consume your eyes [and you are now blind], and to grieve your heart [mind]: and all the increase of your house shall die in the flower of their age.
34 And this shall be a sign unto you, that shall come upon your two sons, on Hophni [pugilist – those whose profession is to fight against Me] and Phinehas [whose mouths are the serpent’s, Satan’s, mouth]; in one day they shall die both of them.
35 And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in my heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before my anointed [I Am] forever.
36 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in your house shall come and crouch to him [I Am] for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray you, into one of the priests’ offices, that I may eat a piece of bread [follow you and the word of LORD spoke to and from you].

Jeremiah 31
12 Therefore they shall come and sing [repeating these words with me] in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy [when they realize My presence], and will comfort [nacham] them [by leading them into all truth], and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, says the LORD.
15 Thus says the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping [with word lacking understanding]; Rachel weeping for her children refused to be comforted [nacham – refusing to lead her children into life by giving this truth] for her children, because they were not [yet born by her opening her mouth to open their mouths].
16 Thus says the LORD; Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears: for your work [your open mouth] shall be rewarded, says the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of [‘erets – the earth controlled by] the enemy.
17 And there is hope in your end [‘achariyth – these last days of darkness], says the LORD, that your children shall come again to their own border [the beginning of this new earth].
18 I have surely heard Ephraim [God’s people in this generation, meaning both heap of double ruin and heap of double blessing, “double” referring to the dead here raised to life, as the children of Joseph: the one separated from his brethren until he is revealed as the king of their salvation] bemoaning himself thus; You have chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn you me, and I shall be turned; for you are the LORD my God.
19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.
20 Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for since I spoke against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore, my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, says the LORD.
21 Set you up waymarks, make you high heaps: set your heart toward the highway, even the way which you went: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities.
22 How long will you go about, O you backsliding daughter? for the LORD has created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass [cabab – be led by and gather around; referring us to its use in Deuteronomy 32:10] a man.
23 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use this speech in the land [‘erets] of Judah [the earth under the new crop of leaders I raise from among the dead] and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity [their minds seeing as I see]; The LORD bless you [with this double blessing heaped upon the seed of Joseph, as in Genesis 49:25 & 26 above], O habitation of justice, and mountain [My new government in church and state] of holiness.

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts [minds]; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Deuteronomy 32
6 Do you thus requite [gamal – treat wrongfully] the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he your father that has bought you? has he not made you, and established you?
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 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 is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about [cabab], he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye [the pupil He teaches to see as He sees].
11 As an eagle [the final {fourth} face, manifested presence of the LORD, in the wheel within the wheel] stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings [the voice of the life giver in the same wheel within a wheel], taketh them, bears them on her wings:
12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

Isaiah 54
5 For your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
6 For the LORD has called you as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when you were 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 colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires.
12 And I will make your windows of agates, and your gates of carbuncles, and all your borders of pleasant stones.
13 And all your children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of your children.
14 In righteousness shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you.
15 Behold, they [the army of darkness] shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against you [My ONE BODY] 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.

Psalms 111
1 Praise you the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart [mind], in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
3 His work is honorable and glorious: and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has made his wonderful [eye-opening] works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious [freely giving us His word of life] and full of compassion.
5 He has given meat [this deep understanding] unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.
8 They stand fast forever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
9 He sent redemption unto his people: he has commanded his covenant forever: holy and reverend is his name [identity].
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever.

I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be your plagues; O grave, I will be your destruction: repentance shall be hid from my eyes.

31 May – 2 June 2024

I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be your plagues; O grave, I will be your destruction: repentance shall be hid from my eyes.

The word, above in Hosea 13:14, twice rendered “gave,” is sh’owl (sheol), meaning “Hades or the world of the dead (as if a subterranean retreat), including its accessories and inmates:–grave, hell, pit.”

The deeper meaning is found in its affinity to the name Saul, both from the word sha’al, meaning to demand. In context, it speaks of God’s people demanding a king of their own choosing and not of His.

He (the LORD) speaks of this in earlier verses, saying:

Hosea 13
9 O Israel, you have destroyed yourself; but in me is your help.
10 I will be your king: where is any other that may save you in all your cities? and your judges of whom you said, Give me a king and princes?
11 I gave you a king in my anger, and took him away in my wrath.
12 The iniquity of Ephraim [God’s people in this generation, the last of the old and first of the new] bound up [tsarar – in what afflicts him, the same as tsarah, tribulation]; his sin is hid [tsaphan – reserved with My treasures to be revealed by Me].
13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him [the birth pains of Ephraim, who is a double {again a} heap of ruin that is born again as a heap of fruitfulness]: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children [those who hear this word and come from the belly of hell into life].

Job 14
10 But man dies, and [his flesh] wastes away: yea, man gives up the ghost, and where is he?
11 As the waters fail from the sea [understanding this word leaves all humanity], and the flood decays and dries up:
12 So man [without this understanding] lies down, and rises not: till the [old and corrupt] heavens be no more, they shall not awake [from death], nor be raised out of their sleep [here in hell].
13 O that you would hide [tsaphan] me in the grave [sheol], that you wouldest keep me secret [cathar], until your wrath be past, that you would appoint me a set time [choq –You have decreed], and remember me!
14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change [chaliyphah – this is a change of garment: the flesh cover] come.
15 You shall call, and I will answer you: you will have a desire to the work of your hands.

The deeper meaning in the word chaliyphap is it deconstructs into the words chaliy peh, meaning it is when the LORD people become obedient, as His “jewel” and open their “mouths.” This is as we saw in the previous post, from Provers 25 and Song of Solomon 7.

Proverbs 25
11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament [chaliy – only appearing here and in Song of Solomon 7:1] of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient [shama’] ear [pierced by wise words fitly spoken, which enter the mind and are heard from the mouth of faithful messengers].
13 As the cold of snow [this word reserved in heaven] in the time of harvest [this time of judgment], so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Song of Solomon 7
1 How beautiful are your feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! the joints of your thighs are like jewels [chaliy – as the obedient joined with a wise reprover], the work of the hands of a cunning workman [‘aman – meaning “an expert,” a trainer, a master-builder].

13 The mandrakes [duwday – the baskets of fruit] give a smell [by which we perceive its presence], and at our gates [this word of God] are all manner of pleasant [meged] fruits, new and old, which I have laid up [tsaphan – as treasure reserved for this moment] for you, O my beloved [dowd – David, I Am].

Jeremiah 24
1 The LORD showed me, and, behold, two baskets [duwday] of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon [the lies of false prophets and false teachers that carried all into the desolation and confusion that now rules the world] had carried away captive Jeconiah [who Jehovah will establish] the son of Jehoiakim [who Jehovah raises up] king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon [to this world ruled by confusion and delusion].
2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are [now] first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty [ra’ – evil] figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad [roa’].
3 Then said the LORD unto me, What see you, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil [ra’], very evil [ra’], that cannot be eaten, they are so evil [roa’].
4 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans [among those using their words to oppress and manipulate into evil] for their good.
6 For I will set my eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land [‘erets – the new earth]: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
7 And I will give them a heart [a mind] to know me, that I Am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart [mind].
8 And as the evil [ra’] figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil [roa’]; surely thus says the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah [those in whom Jehovah’s Righteousness should be manifested, but instead they are evil] the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land [‘erets – the old and corrupt earth], and them that dwell in the land [‘erets – the old earth] of Egypt [under the oppression of evil tyrants]:
9 And I will deliver them to be removed [za’avah – to be mistreated by their own perversions, their own evil judgment] into all the kingdoms of the earth [‘erets] for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
10 And I will send the sword [this word of God they refuse], the famine [without this word of God], and the pestilence [the dis-ease that comes with My Spirit], among them, till they be consumed [tamam – in the completion of this new creation] from off the land [‘adamah – from this new generation upon the earth] that I gave unto them and to their fathers.

The word tsaphan, after Song of Solomon, only appears in Jeremiah 16:17, Ezekiel 7:22, and Hoses 13:12 (above).

Jeremiah 16
14 Therefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD lives, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land [‘erets] of Egypt [the earth under tyrants];
15 But, The LORD lives, that brought up the children of Israel from the land [‘erets] of the north [the earth covered in the darkness of its own ignorance], and from all the lands [‘erets – the earth as Babylon, ruled by confusion] whither he had driven them [nadach – where you have been scattered by misleaders]: and I will bring them again into their land [‘adamah – this new generation I am creating] that I gave unto their fathers.
16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, says the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks [the void created by following those they trusted, who’ve led them into this My trap, the snare upon the whole earth].
17 For my eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid [cathar] from my face [paniym – My presence], neither is their iniquity hid [tsaphan] from my eyes.
18 And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double [with this double blessing upon Ephraim, against his double ruin]; because they have defiled my land [‘erets – My earth], they have filled my inheritance [My people] with the carcasses [the animated dead flesh of the men they’ve followed] of their detestable [shiqquwts – the abomination of desolation, as in Daniel 9:72, 11:31, & 12:11, which these men made and put in place of the holy] there and abominable [tow’ebah] things [idols the LORD detests and abhors].
19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in [manowc – a nine times used word, which, in its other uses, as here, further describes the cause of] the day of affliction, the Gentiles [those who haven’t know My presence and manner, coming out of, away from the cause, the mouth of lying, deceitful, and false accusing men, of their affliction] shall come unto you from the ends [ending the old and beginning the new] of the earth [‘erets], and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity [empty, worthless, false understanding], and things wherein there is no profit.
20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?
21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know my hand [this work] and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.

Friends, can we live in peace with those now attaching us, waging war that seeks to imprison any that stand against them and their evil control? As we see, they openly turn the truth into a lie and with one evil voice call it justice. They, these known liars, while telling known lies, these false accusers falsely accusing, declare themselves the righteous. Do you yet understand this is hell, and those in power: the pope, president, and all their minions are possessed by Satan, who, through them, wields his power to deceive and accuse the innocent? They hide the one who is in them working. We shouldn’t and no longer can.

2 Corinthians 11
10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia [that Christ is alive in me working, warring, against the powers of Satan, in the day of affliction].
11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knows.
12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion [to deceive you and keep you in death and hell]; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we [men in whom a spirit is working, God in us and Satan in them].
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ [false Christs saying they are saviors of the world, when they are the saviors of hell, doing the work of Satan]
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
16 I say again, let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little [not hiding Christ alive in Me, in those He’s called and chosen, His true ministers of righteousness].

Revelation 12
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. [Is this not true? proven before the eyes of all the earth?]
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb [the necessary sacrifice, declaring the LORD alive in us, working against the now uncovered Satan and his minions], and by the word of their testimony [this word from your opened mouths]; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.

Matthew 24
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world [as it is here] for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation [the wicked doing Satan’s work while claiming themselves the righteous in power], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea [among this current crop of corrupt leaders] flee into the mountains [the LORD’s new government here on the earth]:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house [the corrupt places of church and state]:
18 Neither let him which is in the field [working evil with these wicked men in power] return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray you that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall [doing the work of Satan] show great signs and [lying] wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert [the place made desolate by men’s abominations]; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers [hiding who is in Him doing the work]; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines [phaino – sends light] even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be [with this understanding sent upon all].
28 For wheresoever the carcass is [where the dead body of Christ is], there will the eagles [those who’ve risen into heaven, into full understand and joined with the LORD, by this strength alive in us] be gathered together [into My ONE BODY].
29 Immediately after the tribulation [ends by this understanding come] of those days shall the sun be darkened [the church institutions shall be seen and without any understanding], and the moon [civil governments] shall not give her light [because there is no understanding in them, only evil], and the stars shall fall [into apostasy] from heaven [all God’s people shall be realized to be following lies men created and put in place of the holy], and the powers of the [old and corrupt] heavens [where understand should be isn’t] shall be shaken [to shake from these places, by this exposition, the wicked and their abominations]:
30 And then shall appear [phaino – shining this light from earth to west upon all] the sign of the Son of man in heaven [this place from where comes the true light]]: and then shall all the tribes [those scatter into factions by these same wicked men and their abominations] of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds [where the LORD reserved this understanding] of heaven with power and great glory [of the Father revealing His presence in the son he thereby declares].
31 And he shall send his angels [as I send you with this message] with a great sound of a trumpet [God’s people opening their mouth declaring Him and His judgment against the wicked in power], and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds [all the places they have been scattered by the defiling spirits of devils among them at war against them], from one end of [the old and corrupt] heaven to the other [this new heaven on earth, wherein dwells the LORD’s righteousness].
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise you, when you shall see [as you now see] all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Truly I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 [The old and corrupt] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words [this word He alive in me is speaking] shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour known no man [as none have known Him at His presence manifested in His word], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Friends, the mystery revealed is that when you speak His word, He is alive in us, declaring Himself present.

Romans 10
4 For Christ [alive in you] is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes [He is alive in them].
5 For Moses describe the righteousness which is of the law [as we see men now manipulating it, doing violence to it, by it, through their twisting and perverting it (the law} to force their evil intentions], That the man which does those things shall live by them.
6 But the righteousness which is of faith [the LORD is alive in us when we speak His word, according to this word, by which we know it is His word and not the word of deceivers] speaks on this wise, Say not in your heart [ignorant minds], Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
8 But what says it? The word is nigh you, even in your mouth, and in your heart [minds]: that is, the word of faith, which we preach [here and now, in this time only the Father knows, declaring Himself present in me];
9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the LORD Jesus [is alive in you, speaking according to this word He has given us], and shall believe in your heart [minds] that God has raised him [here and now] from the dead, you shall be saved.
10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture says, Whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same LORD over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent [as the LORD sent me, I send you with this same word, declaring He is alive in you]? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things [the present LORD]!
16 But they have not all obeyed [shama’] the gospel. For Isaiah says [in Isaiah 53:1], LORD, who has believed our report [shmuw’ah – who has heard this voice as the LORD’s voice, and thereby the arm of the LORD, Him alive in us doing the work, is revealed]?
17 So then faith comes by hearing [and obeying], and hearing by the word of God [receives as His and Him].
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes truly, their sound went into all the earth [giving understanding from east to west, shining it upon all], and their words unto the ends of the world [ending the old and beginning the new].
19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses says, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.
20 But Isaiah is very bold, and says {in Esaiah 65:1 & 2], I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
21 But to Israel he says, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying [opposing Me with words of the ignorant] people [who say to me, “Come not near us because we are holier than you”].

1 Timothy 6
11 But you, O man of God [I Am], flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life [as I do], whereunto you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses [here and now].
13 I give you charge in the sight of God, who quickens [brings to the light, which is life] all things, and before Christ Jesus [Present in me], who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
14 That you keep this commandment without spot [the corruption of the flesh], unrebukable, until the appearing [epiphaneia – the epiphany, the manifestation through the phaino, the shining from me, us] of our LORD Jesus Christ:
15 Which in his times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and LORD of lords;
16 Who only has immortality [athanasia – only use here and twice, in 1 Corinthians 15:53 & 54, where it comes when we put off corruption], dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto [and is only given by the Father to His son]; whom no man [only the Father] has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.
17 Charge them that are rich [with status and power] in this world, that they be not high-minded [not exalting their thoughts above this word of God], nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God [who I declare is alive in me doing this work and speaking His word only He knows and reveals], who gives us richly all [these] things to enjoy;
18 That they do good [not misleading with your own words], that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute [this same word], willing to communicate [these good tidings];
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life [with me].
20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to your trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science [pseudo knowledge] so called:
21 Which [pseudo knowledge] some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.

Revelation 14
1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion [God’s throne, His government now on the earth], and with him a hundred forty and four thousand [the elect remant], having his Father’s name [identity] written in their foreheads [the forefront of their minds].
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of [His elect remnant speaking this word] a great thunder [from the cloud]: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
3 And they sung as it were a new song [this word given to be repeated with me as received] before the throne, and before the four beasts [the living creatures of Ezekiel’s wheel within a wheel: as man, roaring as lion, working in the earth as an ox, and by it rising into full understand as an eagle], and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. [Job 19:25 For I know that my redeemer {ga’al – kinsman, whose right it is} lives, and that he shall stand at the latter day {‘acharown} upon the earth:]
4 These are they which were not defiled with women [the corrupt churches]; for they are virgins [undefiled by men]. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the first-fruits unto God and to the Lamb.
5 And in their mouth [in these words they speak] was found no guile [no deception]: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
6 And I saw another angel fly [a messenger as an eagle] in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of [these living] waters.
8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon [the confusion that before ruled the world] is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication [with wicked men possessed by Satan].
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast [Babylon] and his image [confusion], and receive his mark [of confusion, now turned obvious insanity, the denial of reality and truth, while putting the opposite in its place] in his forehead [in the forefront of their minds], or in his hand [seen in the evil works which they falsely claim is justice: righteousness],
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God [this same word they refuse], which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with [this word, which is] fire and brimstone in [the LORD’s manifested] presence of the [in His] holy angels [messengers speaking His message], and in the [LORD’s manifested] presence of [in] the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast [Babylon – the powers ruling the world] and his image [confusion and obvious insanity, denying reality and truth], and whosoever receive the mark [showing they are the possessions] of his name [showing the identity of Satan in them].
12 Here is the patience of the saints [waiting for the LORD, in His time, to reveal His presence in us]: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus [witnessing a good confession before those seeking to destroy us].
13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the LORD from henceforth: Yea, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud [from where understanding is sent], and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown [which the LORD gives], and in his hand a sharp sickle [to cut short His work].
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in your sickle, and reap: for the time is come for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped [and the elect remnant, the first-fruits were joined with the LORD].
17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire [and brimstone from the mouths of the elect remnant speaking, singing, the same words they were given by the Lamb, who first received them from the Father]; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes [of the LORD’s wrath] are fully ripe.
19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
20 And the winepress was trodden without the city [outside the camp, as in Hebrews 13:11 & 12 below], and blood [of the sacrifice of His elect remnant] came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles [mouths of those speaking, controlled by the LORD riding them], by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Hebrews 13
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
6 So that we may boldly say, The LORD is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace [this gift from God]; not with meats [the dead flesh of men], which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood [the words of this sacrifice] is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood [outside the camp], suffered without the gate.
13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach [shedding the blood of His sacrifice, that is brought to those remaining in corruption in the tabernacle defiled by the dead flesh therein].
14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips [with this word] giving thanks to his name.
16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
17 Obey them [I Am Timothy set at liberty, loosed from death, and sent on this mission for this purpose] that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Revelation 19
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God [upon the horse].
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean [the purity by which we see God].
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls [as eagles with full understanding] that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast [Babylon – the Satan possessed powers that rule the world] was taken, and with him the false prophet[s] that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark [of possession] of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone [which came from the mouths of the Lamb and the elect remnant].
21 And the [evil possessed] remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls [as eagles] were filled with their flesh.

Jeremiah 25
30 Therefore prophesy you against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall [like a lion] roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout [from His archangel, I Am], as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the [ending the old and beginning the new] earth; for the LORD has a controversy [who should rule the world, the LORD who created it or the wicked powers that have destroyed it] with the nations [those who haven’t known Him], he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, says the LORD.
32 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation [who haven’t known Me] to nation [against those who haven’t known Me], and a great whirlwind [from where My voice is heard] shall be raised up from the coasts [the end of the old and beginning the new] of the earth.
33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they [their animated dead flesh] shall be dung upon the ground.
34 Howl, you shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, you principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and you shall fall like a pleasant vessel.
35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee [manowc], nor the principal of the flock to escape.
36 A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard: for the LORD has spoiled their pasture.
37 And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
38 He has forsaken his covert [revealing His presence], as the lion: for their land [‘erets – the earth] is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and because of his fierce anger.

Ezekiel 7
1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Also, you son of man, thus says the LORD God [‘Adonay Jehovih – the King of king and LORD of lords] unto the land [‘adamah – this generation I Am creating] of Israel; An end [qets], the end [qets] is come upon the four corners of the land [‘erest – the earth where My people are scattered].
3 Now is the end [qets] come upon you, and I will send my anger upon you, and will judge you according to your ways, and will recompense upon you all your abominations [tow’edah].
4 And my eye shall not spare you, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense your ways upon you, and your abominations [tow’ebah] shall be in the midst of you: and you shall know that I am the LORD.
5 Thus says the LORD God [‘Adonay Jehovih]; An evil [ra’], an only evil [ra’], behold, is come.
6 An end [qets] is come, the end [qets] is come: it watches [quwts – it awakens, in the morning] for you; behold, it is come.
7 The morning [tsphiyrah – the diadem of Isaiah 28:5, the crown upon the head of the LORD of the army of heaven] is come unto you, O you that dwell in the land [‘erets – the old and corrupt earth]: the time is come, the day of trouble is near [qarowb], and not the sounding again [hed – only used here, meaning the evil decrees] of the mountains [from the corrupt governments of church and state].
8 Now will I shortly [qarowb] pour out my fury upon you, and accomplish [kalah – as used twice in Daniel 12:7; to finish] my anger upon you: and I will judge you according to your ways, and will recompense you for all your abominations [tow’ebah].
9 And my eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense you according to your ways and your abominations [tow’ebah] that are in the midst of you; and you shall know that I am the LORD that smites.
10 Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning [tsphiyray – the crowning] is gone forth; the rod has blossomed, pride has budded.
11 Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of theirs: neither shall there be wailing for them.
12 The time is come, the day draws near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
13 For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they were yet alive: for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof, which shall not return; neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.
14 They [the faithful of the LORD] have blown the trumpet [giving ample warning], even to make all ready; but none goes to the battle: for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
15 The sword [this word they refuse] is without [the camp], and the pestilence [the disease that comes upon the wicked at My presence manifested] and the famine [God’s people refusing His word] within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.
16 But they that escape [palat] of them shall escape [paliyt], and shall be on the mountains [going into God’s new government] like doves of the valleys [as signs to the lowly of the end reached], all of them mourning [the end of the old and corrupt heaven and earth], every one for his iniquity.
17 All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water.
18 They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold [all the things the old and corrupt world thought were of value] shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it [the things in which they trust] is the stumbling-block [mikshowl – the likeness of hell, following things desired] of their iniquity.
20 As for the beauty of his ornament [the words with which the LORD has clothed, adorned, us], he set it in majesty [ga’own – He exalted it above all worldly value]: but they made the images of their abominations [tow’ebah] and of their detestable things therein: therefore have I set it [My majesty] far from them.
21 And I will give it [images you’ve created] into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
22 My face [paniym – My presence] will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret [tsaphan] place [so none see any value in the treasure]: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.
23 Make a chain [rattowq – only used elsewhere in 1 Kings 6:21, where it a “chain” overlayed {tsaphah} with gold, desired worldly value, that hides the true treasure within {the ‘abar – the way to pass over from death into life} in the oracle {the holy of holies, in the LORD’s presence manifested in the conversation}]: for the land is full of bloody crimes [again turth tellers], and the city is full of violence [against this word of God].
24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses [as I have]: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled [as they are: Isaiah 28:8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.].
25 Destruction comes; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
26 Mischief [hovah, from havah] shall come upon mischief [hovah], and rumor [shmuw’ah – this voice of Jehovah heard] shall be upon rumor [shmuw’ah – His voice teaching, precept upon precept, line upon line] then shall they seek a vision of the [false] prophet[s]; but the law shall perish from the priest[s], and counsel from the ancients [all the robbers who’ve put themselves in My place]. [The word hovah, referring to the effects of the strong delusion the LORD has sent upon the insane, only appears one other time, in Isaiah 47:11, saying “Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shall not know from whence it rises: and mischief {hovah} shall fall upon you; you shall not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know {because you’ve been chained in your own ignorance}.”]
27 The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land [‘erets – the earth] shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts [mishpat – according to their corrupt judgment, by the precedent of their evil shall the evil judge them, and thereby] will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD

The word rendered “breaking forth,” in Hosea 13:13 above, is the three times used word mishber, which, in both its other appearances, tells of the children who have come to “the birth” and have no power to bring forth. This (lack of power) refers to Daniel 12:7 and Deuteronomy 32:36, both speaking of when the LORD, seeing the power and understanding of His people is gone, takes matters into His own hands.

Romans 9
28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the LORD make upon the earth.

Mathew 24
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Daniel 12
6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end [qets] of these wonders [pele’ – these things wondered about until they are unsealed]?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that lives forever that it shall be for a time [mow’ed – an appointed time], times [mow’ed – of the congregation], and a half [right dividing this word and opening the sealed word]; and when he shall have accomplished [kalah] to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished [kalah].
8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my LORD, what shall be the end [‘achariyth – the last days of darkness, when the word is unsealed, and are again spoken by God’s faithful people who recognize His presence] of these things?
9 And he said, Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up [catham] and sealed [catham] till the time of the end [qets].
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

Deuteronomy 32
27 Were it not that I [for My people] feared 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 [‘achariyth – is in these last days of darkness]!
30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
31 For their rock [in which they trust] is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges [the wicked we now see plainly].
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
33 Their wine is the poison of dragons [tanniyn – men as whales and serpent devouring men and swallowing them into the belly of hell], and the cruel venom of asps [are the word from their mouths].
34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up [chatham] among my treasures?
35 To me belongs vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand [qarowb – the short work of the LORD], and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he sees that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left [with understanding].
37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,
38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.
39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live forever.
41 If I whet my glittering sword, and my hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to my enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
43 Rejoice, O you nations [who haven’t known Me], with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land [‘adamah – this generation of His new creation], and to his people.

The once used Hebrew word hed, above in Ezekiel 7:7, speaking of the evil decrees of the wicked in power over church and state, is the sound of wrath, the shout heard at the treading of the grapes of wrath.

It (hed) is from heydad, a seven times used word, meaning “acclamation:–shout(-ing),” and is the word, above in Jeremiah 25:30, rendered “shout,” saying “Therefore prophesy you against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall [like a lion] roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout [from His archangel, I Am], as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.”

This shout from the LORD, against the shouts of the wicked, is the same Enoch foretold, saying, “Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

Isaiah 16
6 We have heard of the pride of Moab [these men whose mouth are the gates of hell]; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so [shall not stand].
7 Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab, every one shall howl: for the foundations of Kirhareseth [the wall of potsherds, lies, which cannot stand] shall you mourn; surely they are stricken.
8 For the fields of Heshbon [their stronghold of deception] languish, and the vine of Sibmah [in whose smell we have perceived wickedness]: the lords of the heathen have broken down [halam – conquered] the principal plants [from where now flows their evil] thereof, they are come even unto Jazer [to whom the people went for help], they wandered through the wilderness: her branches are stretched out, they are gone over [‘abar – they passed over into death] the sea [with all humanity].
9 Therefore I will bewail with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah [those who look to these deceivers for help]: I will water you with my tears, O Heshbon [whose stronghold is deception], and Elealeh [against which God is ascending]: for the shouting [heydad – the evil decrees] for your summer fruits [of the wicked figs] and for your harvest is fallen [by its apostasy and ignorance].
10 And gladness is taken away, and joy [realizing the LORD’s presence] out of the plentiful field; and in the vineyards there shall be no singing [refusing to repeat this word of the LORD as received], neither shall there be shouting [ruwa’ – this warning, heard as the last trumpet sounding]: the treaders shall tread out no wine in their presses; I have made their vintage shouting [heydad – their same old evil decreed] to cease.
11 Wherefore my bowels shall sound like a harp [this song] for Moab, and my inward parts for Kirharesh [the wall of lies which shall not stand]
12 And it shall come to pass, when it is seen that Moab is weary on the high place, that he shall come to his [corrupt] sanctuary to pray; but he shall not prevail.

Jeremiah 48
31 Therefore will I howl for Moab, and I will cry out for all Moab; my heart shall mourn for the men of Kirheres.
32 O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for you with the weeping of Jazer: your plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer: the spoiler is fallen upon your summer fruits and upon your vintage.
33 And joy and gladness is taken from the plentiful field, and from the land of Moab, and I have caused wine to fail from the winepresses: none shall tread with shouting [heydad]; their shouting [heydad] shall be no shouting [heydad].
34 From the cry of Heshbon [the strongholds of deception] even unto Elealeh [against which God is ascending], and even unto Jahaz [to whom the people go for help], have they uttered their voice, from Zoar [to their little ones] even unto Horonaim [into the prison of the serpent], as a heifer of three years old [their little ones as sacrifice to their idols, misleaders who put themselves in God’s place]: for the waters also of Nimrim [that should be pure, so these things are clearly seen] shall be desolate.
35 Moreover I will cause to cease in Moab, says the LORD, him that offers in the high places, and him that burns incense to his gods.
36 Therefore my heart [mind] shall sound for [life a trumpet warning against] Moab like pipes, and my heart shall sound like pipes for the men of Kirheres [who trust in lies]: because the [worldly] riches that he has gotten are perished.

Psalms 77
10 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
11 I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember your wonders [pele’] of old.
12 I will meditate also of all your work, and talk of your doings.
13 Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
14 You are the God that does wonders [pele’]: you have declared your strength among the people.
15 You have with your arm redeemed your people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
16 The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
17 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: your arrows also went abroad.
18 The voice of your thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way is in the sea, and your path in the great waters, and your footsteps are not known.
20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses [those You separated from the waters of corruption] and Aaron [who gives Your light and received].

Psalms 88
10 Will you show wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise you? Selah.
11 Shall your lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or your faithfulness in destruction?
12 Shall your wonders be known in the dark? and your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

Psalms 104
30 You send forth your spirit, they are created: and you renew the face of the earth.
31 The glory of the LORD shall endure forever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
32 He looks on the earth, and it trembles: he touches the hills, and they smoke.
33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless you the LORD, O my soul. Praise you the LORD.

Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof.

28 – 29 May 2024

Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof.

The (seventeen times used) Hebrew word ‘avah (5753), rendered “turns” above in Isaiah 24:1, (as seen in a previous post) means “to crook, literally or figuratively (as follows):–do amiss, bow down, make crooked, commit iniquity, pervert, (do) perverse(-ly), trouble, X turn, do wickedly, do wrong.” The Interlinear Bible translates this word (in this passage) as “distorts.”

The words “upside down” are from the word paniym, which expressly speaks of the LORD’s presence, which (distortion) causes the earth’s emptiness, and makes it a waste. The word rendered “scatters abroad,” speaking of the earth’s inhabitance, is puwts, meaning “to dash in pieces, literally or figuratively (especially to disperse).”

This latter word (puwts) tells of when the LORD parts the light and how His Holy Spirit works (is “scattered”) upon all the earth, as in Job 38:24 as He, from the whirlwind, asks man to answer a few enlightening questions.

Job 38 [from the previous post]
16 Have you entered into the springs of the sea [these life-giving waters intended to save all who receive and obey them]? or have you walked in the search of the depth [the deep understanding reserved therein]?
17 Have the gates of death [and hell] been opened unto you? or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death?
18 Have you perceived the breadth [the end and beginning] of the earth? declare if you know it all.
19 Where is the way where light dwells [in those to whom God alone gives it]? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof [with the wise and powerful of this world],
20 That you shouldest take it to the bound thereof [the end of ignorance, in these last days of darkness], and that you shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
21 Know you it, because you were then [thereby] born? or because the number of your days is great?
22 Have you entered into the treasures of the snow [My word I reserved, froze, in the cloud for this moment]? or have you seen the treasures of the hail [this understanding from there sent against the current corrupt crop misleaders],
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble [tsar – by enemies in our midst, as tyrants in power], against the day of battle and war [which none can any longer doubt is raging around us]?
24 By what way is the light parted [into the many colors of the bow now seen in the cloud], which scatters [[puwts]] the east wind [The LORD’s Spirit working, unseen moving] upon the earth?
25 Who has [rightly] divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters [who, as I Am, has sent these words revealing men’s trespasses beyond the LORD’s set limits], or a way for the lightning [understanding to come against them from heaven] of thunder [qowl – by LORD’s voice heard from there];
26 To cause it to rain [these waters from heaven] on the earth, where no [living] man is; on the wilderness [the earth the dead have made desolate: without form and void], wherein there is no man [with this light, which is life];
27 To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth [on this third day of creation]?
28 Has the rain a father? or who has begotten the drops of dew [this word that now appears on earth]?
29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who has gendered it [made it bring forth children]?
30 The waters are hid as with a stone [I Am, the Rock through whom it flows from the LORD], and the face of the deep [my presence revealed from where it] is frozen.
31 Can you bind the sweet influences [qashar ma’adannah – compact into a group, referring to the madad, the end of the course plotted] of Pleiades [kiymah – a constellation of seven celestial lights], or loose the bands [open the understanding] of Orion [kciyl – of the constellations]?
32 Can you bring forth Mazzaroth [the true meaning in the Zodiac, the plan of God’s salvation therein presented and passed on verbally, before the written word] in his season [at this appointed time]? or can you guide [nachah – transport] Arcturus [‘ash – Ursa Major, the fold, and the great flock – referring to Asher as spoken of in Deuteronomy 33:24 – 29] with his sons?
33 Know you the ordinances of heaven? can you set the dominion thereof [when heaven rules over the earth, when I establish My government here and now] in the earth?
34 Can you lift up your voice to the clouds [where My word is reserved for this time of war], that abundance of waters may cover you?
35 Can you send lightnings [this understanding from the cloud], that they may go and say unto you, Here we are [as My words say “Here I Am”]?
36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart [mind]?
37 Who can number [caphar – declare in writing] the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay [stop] the bottles of heaven [to keep this understanding there],
38 When the dust [the ruin of the earth] grows into hardness, and the clods [regeb] cleave fast together?
39 Will you hunt the prey for the lion [of Judah]? or fill the appetite of the young lions [“I and the children the LORD has given me are for signs and wonders” among His people],
40 When they couch [shachach – humble themselves and become obedient] in their dens, and abide in the covert [cukkah – their booths: tabernacles] to lie in wait [for their LORD]?
41 Who provides for the raven [those covered in the darkness of their own ignorance] his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander [into apostasy: the darkness of ignorance] for lack of meat [without this deep understanding only He provides].

The title verse begins a chapter in which the LORD is (NOW) giving the reason for His rejecting the current crop of corrupt leaders (who refuse His word and His command to announce His presence while speaking according to this word). The new crop is those scattered across the earth who have received Him, His presence in His word through His chosen, who obey Him and give it as received.

(Suffer me for a moment while I must again digress. The LORD through me has once before changed the world, as His way (to me and others) of emphasizing His power to do so through a nobody in obscurity. So, based on several dreams, I designed, patented, and produced what has become the basis of all military (and civilian Law enforcement) personal tactical Armor and load-bearing equipment. It was first fielded here by a small elite group (think of them like the elect remnant, like Gideon’s 300). Shortly after that (in 2001), the war broke out, and this same unit deployed in mass, working with all the other (special and traditional) US and Allied forces. Their gear was immediately recognized as far superior to anything else fielded, and from that point, it became the most desired and copied design in the world (even stolen, patents infringed, by the U.S. government, fielded to all units, and used to this day – Matthew 27:35). Those who have eyes that see and ears that hear will understand the relevance in me telling this story. We can do this! Just follow the plan! Obey the LORD’s commands!)

Isaiah 24
1 Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty [baqaq], and makes it waste [balaq], and turns [‘avah] it upside down [paniym – and His presence is thereby distorted], and scatters [puwts] abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2 And it [this distortion] shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.
3 The land [‘erets – the earth] shall be utterly emptied [baqaq], and utterly spoiled [bazaz]: for the LORD has spoken this word [and the vexation is to understand it is Him present speaking].
4 The [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] mourns and fades away, the world languishes [‘amal – become weak and feeble] and fades away, the haughty [the proud who are unwilling to be corrected] people of the earth [‘erets] do languish [‘amal – become weak and feeble].
5 The [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws [towrah], changed the ordinance [choq – righteous decrees], broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore [as warned] has the curse [‘alah – their unrighteous decrees] devoured [and swallowed into the belly of hell] the earth [‘erets], and they that dwell therein are desolate [by their abominations they created and put in My place]: therefore the inhabitants of the [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] are burned [in the fire of hell], and few men left [alive with understanding].
7 The new wine mourns [because this word is refused], the vine [from where they receive their teaching] languishes [‘amal – become weak and feeble], all the merry-hearted do sigh.
8 The mirth of tabrets ceases, the noise of them [those who before realized the LORD’s presence with them] that rejoice end, the joy of the harp [repeating these songs as received] ceases.
9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter [marah] to them that drink it.
10 The city [Babylon] of confusion [tohuw – without form] is broken down: every house is shut up [cagar – surrendered to the confusion and insanity of the day], that no man may come in [into understanding].
11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened [all realization of the LORD’s presence is ended by ignorance], the mirth of the land [‘erets – the earth] is gone.
12 In the city [Jerusalem become Babylon] is left desolation, and the gate [keeping confusion out] is smitten with destruction.
13 When thus it shall be [as it now is] in the midst of the land [‘erets – the earth] among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. [Now when there are very few, a very small elect remnant, that haven’t been harvested by the confusion and ignorance that rules the day]
14 They [the elect remnant] shall lift up their voice [qowl], they shall sing [these words they have been given] for the majesty of [ga’own – exalting] the LORD [His words above the words of the proud who corrupted and deluded the earth], they shall cry aloud from the sea [among humanity at large, where they have been strategically scattered].
15 Wherefore glorify you [with His words, manifesting the presence of] the LORD in the fires [which have no effect on us], even the name [identity] of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea [the places where His word isn’t heard].
16 From the uttermost part [kanaph – the sound of the wings of the cherubim, the message from the same in the wheel within the wheel] of the earth have we heard [these] songs, even glory to the righteous [who’ve received the LORD and His righteousness]. But I said, My leanness [raziy], my leanness [raziy – only used here, telling of the very few who know and receive the LORD], woe unto me! the treacherous dealers [bagad] have dealt treacherously [bagad]; yea, the treacherous dealers [bagad] have dealt very treacherously [bagad – speaking of those distributing their own words and refusing to distribute this word of the LORD; referring to its four uses in Isaiah 33:1 and once in Isaiah 48:8].
17 Fear [this], and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth [‘erets]. [Luke 21: 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.]
18 And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise [qowl – from the voice of the LORD] 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 [corrupt] foundations of the earth [‘erets] do shake [that wickedness is shaken from them].
19 The [old and corrupt] earth [‘ erets] is utterly broken down, the [old andcorrupt] earth [‘erets] is clean dissolved, the [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] is moved exceedingly.
20 The earth [‘erets] shall reel to and fro like a drunkard [see Luke 21:34 below, which comes as a snare upon all the earth, as it is this day], and shall be removed [nuwd] like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it [the old and corrupt earth] shall fall, and not rise again. [Jeremiah 50:8 Remove {nuwd} out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans {whose word have manipulated and controlled the world into death and hell}, and be as the he goats before {paniym – as the LORD’s presence rightly leading} the flocks {out of confusion, death, and hell}.]
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth] the host [the army of darkness] of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth [‘adamah – those ruling his people] upon the earth [‘adamah – in the new generation He is raising to life from the dead].
22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited [paqad – now when He appears again to our sight as the Chief Overseer of the earth].
23 Then the moon [all the corrupt civil governments of the earth] shall be confounded, and the sun [the corrupt church government] ashamed [seen to have taught lies and falsehood], when the LORD of hosts [a man of war] shall reign [as the head of His new government on the earth] in mount Zion, and in [New Heavenly] Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

Luke 21
24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive [scattered] into all nations: and [old and corrupt] Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles [those who haven’t known the LORD], until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled [and none are left with understanding].
25 And there shall be signs in the sun [the darkened church], and in the moon [civil governments not reflecting the light of the sun, because there isn’t any], and in the stars [God’s fallen people without understanding]; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring [the opinions of ignorant humanity, unable to be corrected because of their pride in what they think they know];
26 Men’s hearts [minds] failing them for fear, and for looking [but not seeing, because they are looking for what their false prophets have told] after those things [after the working of Satan, with all signs and lying wonders] which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven [where understanding should be found but isn’t] shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see [when] the Son of man coming in a cloud [with full understanding by which they see him] with power [to enlighten ignorant minds] and great glory [of the Father’s presence manifested thereby].
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh.
29 And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
30 When they now shoot forth [new life], you see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
31 So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, know you that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
32 Truly I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
33 [The old and corrupt] Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts [minds] be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on ALL them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch you therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. [1 Thessalonians 3:8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the LORD.]
37 And in the day time [when life has come] he was teaching in the temple; and at night [when the ignorant are present in power] he went out [from among their confusion and delusions], and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
38 And all the people [at large] came early in the morning [this new day] to him in the temple [the flesh wherein He dwells], for to hear him.

Isaiah 33
1 Woe to you that spoil, and you were not spoiled; and deal treacherously[bagad], and they dealt not treacherously [bagad] with you! when you shall cease to spoil, you shall be spoiled; and when you shall make an end to deal treacherously [bagad], they shall deal treacherously [bagad] with you.
2 O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for [qavah – expected] you: be you their arm every morning, our salvation [yshuw’ah – Joshua: our Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh of His declared perpetual son] also in the time of trouble [tsarah – this tribulation].
3 At the noise [qowl- the voice of Jehovah] of the tumult [hamown – the shout of His multitude] the people fled; at the lifting up [romemuth – only used here, meaning exaltation; the voice of the LORD raised above all others] of yourself the nations were scattered.
4 And your spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar [until nothing, no part of the corrupt’s evil message, is left]: as the running to and fro [seeking the knowledge of the LORD] of locusts shall he run upon them [until none are left untouched by His understanding, wisdom, and knowledge that should be given as received].
5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he has filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.
6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability [’emuwn – faithfulness and truth of His office as the Chief Overseer of the earth] of your times, and strength of salvation [yshuw’ah]: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.
7 Behold, their valiant ones [‘er’el – the same as Ariel, the Lion of God, from whom He roars] shall cry without: the ambassadors [mal’ak – His angels He sends with His message, to be delivered as receives] of peace shall weep bitterly [because the LORD’s people refuse His Salvation message].
8 The highways [to return to the LORD] lie waste, the wayfaring man [‘abar – those passing over from death into life] ceases: he [those who’ve wandered away from the LORD] has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he regards [chashab – refuse to consider] no man.
9 The earth mourns and languishes: Lebanon [purity in high place] is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon [plainly seeing things as they are] is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel [fruitful garden] shake off their fruits.
10 Now will I rise, says the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself. [AMEN!]
11 You shall conceive chaff, you shall bring forth stubble: your breath [your own words you speak], as fire, shall devour you.
12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime [siyd – fire against the scattered bones, tribulation in which the dead body of Christ is purified and raised]: as thorns [misleader that overgrew the garden] cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
13 Hear [shama’ – hear My voice and obey My good leading], you that are far off [rachowq – here in this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men in power], what I have done; and, you that are near [qarowb – who’ve joined with Me], acknowledge [yada’ – because you have seen and know Me] my might [gbuwrah – My strength as a warrior, giving understand that changes men’s minds].
14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings [the bush that burns but never burns out]?
15 He that walks righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that shakes his hands from holding of bribes [We see you Brandon, doing the bidding of your pay masters], that stop his ears from hearing [shama’ – not obeying the commands that are malicious and evil] of blood, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil [not leading people into evil];
16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks [from which this word of God flows]: bread [this rightly divided dispensation] shall be given him; his [the dispenser’s living] waters shall be sure.
17 Your eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off [merchaq – this appointed time the LORD promised and decreed].
18 Your heart shall meditate terror [‘eymah – murmur against and mediate about the fear of the LORD; referring us Proverbs 20:2, saying “The fear {‘eymah} of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provokes him to anger {‘abar – to rise from silence into flesh} sins against his own soul.]. Where is the scribe [caphar – who say they understand the law: My written word]? where is the receiver [shaqal – to who I sent My word, which meaning I suspend for Myself until this time of war]? where is he that counted the towers [caphar migdal – where is the One who wrote these things to be sent into this future only He knew and knows]?
19 You [being blind] shall not see a fierce people [I embolden], a people of a deeper [‘ameq – only appearing here and Ezekiel 3:5 & 6, where it is rendered “strange”] speech than you can perceive [shama’ – not able to hear it as Jehovah speaking, and therefor not willing to follow His good advice]; of a stammering tongue [a language, truth, you don’t understand, because all you have been taught is corruptions and lies], that you can not understand [biynah – the understanding is directly from Jehovah, only used in the Prophets as follows: Isaiah 11:2, 27:11, 29:14 & 24, here, Jeremiah 23:20, Daniel 1:20, 8:15, 9:22 & 10:1, all defining this understanding coming from the Angel {mal’ak – messenger} of the LORD’s presence, who appears as the “son of man”].
20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: your eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle [His people in which He dwells] that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.
21 But there the glorious LORD will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams [this word flowing into the sea: humanity at large: this last generation that is the first of the new creation]; wherein shall go no galley with oars [the now totally corrupt institution of government, church and state, powered by men], neither shall gallant [‘addiyr – having power to rule over man] ship pass thereby [‘abar – they shall not pass over from death into life with this new generations].
22 For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.
23 Your tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail [all the things by which these institutions held man down, are no longer able to hold them down, because they are taken out of our midst, no longer controlling our minds]: then [as in verse 1] is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame [those who strayed from the highway and returned to it] take the prey.
24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Isaiah 48
1 Hear [shama’ – obey] you this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah [this word I’ve sent to My elect remnant], which swear by the name of the LORD, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.
2 For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon the God of Israel; The LORD of hosts is his name.
3 I have declared the former things from the beginning [of the creation of this new heaven and earth]; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I showed them; I did them suddenly [pith’owm], and they came to pass.
4 Because I knew that you are obstinate, and your neck [wherein my words are held but not yet spoken] is an iron sinew, and your brow brass [you are hard headed against My harder head];
5 I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I showed it you: lest you shouldest say, My idol has done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, has commanded them.
6 You have heard, see all this; and will not you declare it [as I’ve commanded]? I have shown you new things [chadash] from this time, even hidden things, and you did not know them.
7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when you heard them not; lest you shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.
8 Yea, you heard [shama’ – obeyed] not; yea, you knew not; yea, from that time that your ear was not opened: for I knew that you would deal very treacherously [bagad], and were called a transgressor from the womb.
9 For my name’s sake will I defer my anger, and for my praise will I refrain for you, that I cut you not off.
10 Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.
11 For my own sake, even for my own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.
12 Hearken [shama’ – obey] unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.
13 My hand also has laid the foundation of the [new] earth, and my right hand has spanned the [new] heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.
14 All you, assemble yourselves [into My ONE BODY], and hear [shama’ – obey]; which among them [except My anointed] has declared these things? The LORD has loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon [the confusion that rules the world], and his arm [this work] shall be on the Chaldeans [against those I’ve hated].
15 I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.
16 Come you near unto me, hear [shama’ – obey] you this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the LORD God, and his Spirit, has sent me.
17 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD your God which teaches you to profit, which leads you by the way that you shouldest go.
18 O that you had hearkened [qashab – let these words pierce your ear and enter your minds] to my commandments! then had your peace been as a river, and your righteousness as the waves of the sea:
19 Your seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of your bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me [paniym – left my presence].
20 Go you forth of Babylon, flee you from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare you [as I have commanded], tell this, utter it even to the end of the [old and corrupt] earth; say you, The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob.
21 And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the Rock for them: he clave the Rock also, and the waters [this word] gushed out.
22 There is no peace, says the LORD, unto the wicked.

Friends, it’s time for the elect remnant to open their mouths and declare the LORD present with us in His word. It must be heard but it isn’t because no one truly believes He has risen in me, in anyone, here or anywhere. No matter how many words He speaks, it’s never enough. The world, God’s people, sit still with closed mouths, waiting for some greater evil to descend upon them before they will believe.

There is no sign but this sign: sending me, like Jonah risen from the belly of hell, to call all the word to repentance, to leave behind the corruption that blinded all from seeing and hearing Him.

Isaiah 8
13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself [declare holy His presence in His man of war]; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
14 And he shall be for a sanctuary [He is our place of safety]; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem [His rebellious people who choose to remain in corruption].
15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
16 Bind up [tsarar] the testimony [accept the affliction, the birth pains, that comes with accepting His word as His], seal [chatham – the LORD referring us to its use in Song of Solomon {SOS} 4:12] the law among my disciples. [Speaking to His disciples, SOS 4:12 saying “A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed {chatham}.”]
17 And I will wait upon the LORD [to be born again in the children He has given me], that hides his face [presence] from the [rebellious] 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 [My people of the promise, who by faith rise with My rising] from the LORD of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion [on His throne].
19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits [the voices of the known dead, speaking the ways of death], and unto wizards [the “experts” of this corrupt world] that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? [Should they be looking] for the living to the dead?
20 [Or should they be looking] To the law and to the testimony [these treasures?]: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light [understanding] in them.

FYI: the Song of Solomon is the LORD speaking (in cryptic pattern) of me (the beloved, as David) and the children (my sister, my spouse) He has given me, as His ONE BODY He awakens.

Song of Solomon 4
3 Your lips [your open mouths] are like a thread of scarlet [referring to Joshua 2:18, marking the house wherein all who enter are spared from the destruction to come], and your speech is comely: your temples are like a piece of a pomegranate within your locks.
4 Your neck is like the tower of David built for an armory [where these treasures are kept before they are revealed from your mouth], whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of [the faith of] mighty men.
5 Your two breasts [from where you nourish your children who seek safety in the LORD’s house] are like two young roes that are twins [ta’own – see Song of Solomon 7:3 below], which feed among the lilies [who hear and repeat His words as trumpets sounding this last trump].
6 Until the day break [and the light, this understanding, comes with the new day], and the shadows [ignorance of those blocking this light] flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense [God’s perfected government, entering His house which we, while not yet seeing it, perceive is present].
7 You are all fair, my love; there is no spot [no stain of corruption] in you.
8 Come with me from Lebanon [this place where purity is exalted on high], my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top [where He has raised you] of Amana [faithfulness and truth, with which the LORD has helped us], from the top of Shenir [His purity exalted in His perfected Government here on the earth] and Hermon [into this place of safety], from the lions’ dens [from where His voice roared as a Lion], [freeing us] from the mountains of the leopards [the government institutions, of church and state, who are stained, spotted, by corruption].
9 You have ravished my heart [labab – you have put on My mind], my sister, my spouse; you have ravished my heart [labab – you have put on My mind] with one of your eyes [by Your eyes made one with MY eyes, seeing as I see], with one chain of your neck [binding you with Me by the word now waiting in your throat to be spoken].
10 How fair is your love [your charity, as Mine, giving these treasures as I’ve given them to you], my sister, my spouse! how much better [at changing the minds of men] is your love [My words in your mouths] than wine! and the smell [perceiving they are] of your ointments [shemem – My anointing], than all spices [better than all other perceptions]!
11 Your lips [Your mouths opened speaking My words], O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb [nopheth – the LORD’s judgment, as in Psalms 19:10]: honey and milk are under your tongue [your words choosing My good leading and refusing the evil]; and the smell of your garments [My righteousness perceived present therein] is like the smell of Lebanon [perceiving they are purity from the Highest].
12 A garden enclosed [na’al – wherein all My treasures are locked until this moment of opening] is my sister, my spouse; a spring [of living water] shut up [na’al – locked], a fountain sealed [chatham – the same word used telling of the book sealed until this end of days, this appointed time {mow’ed} of the congregation {mow’ed}].
13 Your plants [locked within you, the garden] are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant [maged] fruits; camphire [kopher – the price of a life: the ransom of redemption], with spikenard [fallowed ground],
14 Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:
15 A fountain of [life from My] gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon [purity from the Highest].
16 Awake, O north wind [upon those sleeping in ignorance]; and come, you south [those who’ve seen My rising in My work]; blow [My Almighty Spirit] upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out [that they speak these treasures they have perceived]. Let my beloved [I Am] come into his garden [to join the children the LORD has given me], and eat his pleasant [meged] fruits.

The word meged, meaning “to be eminent; properly, a distinguished thing; hence something valuable, as a product or fruit,” only appears one other time in the Song of Solomon, and five times in Deuteronomy 33. It speaks of this fruit (this word) that is the entry, the gate, into the LORD’s kingdom.

Deuteronomy 33
13 And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land [‘erets – the earth], for the precious [meged] things of heaven [this full understanding], for the dew [the LORD’s word that now appears on the earth], and for the deep [understanding] that couches beneath [the surface of His word],
14 And for the precious [maged] fruits brought forth by the sun [this understanding returned to the LORD’s ONE BODY, the risen Church], and for the precious things [meged] put forth by the moon [His perfected government established here on the earth],
15 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains [governments of church and state as intended, to secure men’s God-given rights, among them life, liberty, and property], and for the precious things [maged] of the lasting hills [sustainable civilization by self, personal, government],
16 And for the precious things [meged] of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush [on fire while never burning out]: 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 glory is like the firstling of his bullock [the first begotten for doing this work of the LORD], and his horns [right to rule] are like the horns of unicorns [is the only just rule]: with them [the children the LORD has given me] he shall push [nagach – wage war against the enemies] the people together [yachad – uniting God’s people into ONE BODY] to the ends [ending the old beginning the new] of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim [the children of Joseph, the elect remnant, God’s people in this last generation of the old earth, who are the first begotten of the new], and they are the thousands of Manasseh [those who forgot God, who now remember, re-cognize, Him].

Proverbs 25
11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament [chaliy – only appearing here and in Song of Solomon 7:1] of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient [shama’] ear [pierced by wise words fitly spoken, which enter the mind and are heard from the mouth of faithful messengers].
13 As the cold of snow [this word reserved in heaven] in the time of harvest [this time of judgment], so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Song of Solomon 7
1 How beautiful are your feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! the joints of your thighs are like jewels [chaliy – as the obedient joined with a wise reprover], the work of the hands of a cunning workman [‘aman – meaning “an expert,” a trainer, a master-builder].
2 Your navel is like a round goblet, which wants [chacer – lacks] not liquor: your belly [this hell we are in] is like an heap of wheat set [God’s protected people] about with lilies [who hear His voice as the last trumpet sounding].
3 Your two breasts are like two young roes that are twins. [ta’own – other than here and above, only use twice, in Genesis 25:25 & 38:27, the first speaking of Jacob and Esau, the other of Tamar’s children Pharez (breach) and Zarah (rising) whose hand came out of the womb {beten – belly, like hell, were the living unborn wait to be born again: raised} and a scarlet thread was tied around his hand {work} before he pulled it back and his brother was born first. As we know, Tamar {palm tree} and her two children are mentioned in Matthew’s recording of Jesus’ blood line {generation}, which he records {Matthew 1:3} continuing through Pharez. The LORD’s blood line continues in Zarah, in His resurrection, referred to in the only use of the word zerach {meaning “a rising of light”}, from where the name comes. Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen {zarach – from zerach} upon you. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise {zarach} upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising {zerach}.]
4 Your neck is as a tower of ivory [words waiting to be spoken were seen coming and are in your mouth as teeth with which you devour dead flesh]; your eyes like the fish-pools in Heshbon [the things you’ve seen, life below these written words’ surface, are your stronghold], by the gate of Bathrabbim [the way out of hell into heaven for the multitude of scattered churches]: your nose is as the tower of Lebanon [perceiving these things as purity from the Highest] which looks toward Damascus [is sight for those who remain drunken with pride and therefore silent in sorrow].
5 Your head [leadership] upon you is like Carmel [is a nation of gardens], and the hair of your head [this understanding that has enlarged your mind] like purple [of a virtuous woman: church]; the king is held in the galleries [the king is there joined with you in this watering].
6 How fair and how pleasant are you, O love, for delights!
7 This your stature [gowmah – highness] is like to a palm tree [tamar], and your breasts [your nourishing your children] to clusters of grapes.
8 I said, I will go up to the palm tree [tamar], I will take hold of the boughs thereof: now also your breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of your nose [you deep perception] like apples [the fruit of a good tree];
9 And the roof of your mouth [speaking this word] like the best wine for my beloved, that goes down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
10 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me [I and the children the LORD has given me].
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field [the earth wherein the LORD has planted us]; let us lodge in the villages.
12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth [as in Luke 21:29, when we see the fig tree and all the trees, bring forth new life, you know the kingdom of God is at hand]: there will I give you my loves.
13 The mandrakes [duwday – the baskets of fruit] give a smell [by which we perceive its presence], and at our gates [this word of God] are all manner of pleasant [meged] fruits, new and old, which I have laid up [tsaphan – as treasure reserved for this moment] for you, O my beloved [dowd – David, I Am].

Jeremiah 24
1 The LORD showed me, and, behold, two baskets [duwday] of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon [the lies of false prophets and false teachers that carried all into the desolation and confusion that now rules the world] had carried away captive Jeconiah [who Jehovah will establish] the son of Jehoiakim [who Jehovah raises up] king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon [to this world ruled by confusion and delusion].
2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are [now] first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty [ra’ – evil] figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad [roa’].
3 Then said the LORD unto me, What see you, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil [ra’], very evil [ra’], that cannot be eaten, they are so evil [roa’].
4 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans [among those using the word to oppress and manipulate into evil] for their good.
6 For I will set my eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land [‘erets – the new earth]: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
7 And I will give them a heart [a mind] to know me, that I Am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart [mind].
8 And as the evil [ra’] figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil [roa’]; surely thus says the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah [those in whom Jehovah Righteousness should be manifested, but instead they are evil] the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land [‘erets – the old and corrupt earth], and them that dwell in the land [‘erets – the old earth] of Egypt [under the oppression of evil tyrants]:
9 And I will deliver them to be removed [za’avah – to be mistreated by their own perversion, their own evil judgment] into all the kingdoms of the earth [‘erets] for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
10 And I will send the sword [this word of God they refuse], the famine [with this word of God], and the pestilence [the dis-ease that comes with My Spirit], among them, till they be consumed [tamam – in the completion of this new creation] from off the land [‘adamah – from this new generation upon the earth] that I gave unto them and to their fathers.

Ezekiel 12
17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
18 Son of man, eat your bread with quaking [ra’ash], and drink your water with trembling and with carefulness [d’agah];
19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus says the LORD God of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness [d’agah], and drink their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.
20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
21 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
22 Son of man, what is that proverb that you have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision fails?
23 Tell them therefore, Thus says the LORD God; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.
24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.
25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, says the LORD God.
26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying.
27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he sees is for many days to come, and he prophesies of the times that are far off [rachowq – this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men in power].
28 Therefore say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, says the LORD God.

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 holden 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 [machaceh].
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 my 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 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 showed 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 showed 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.

Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

23 – 25 May 2024

Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

The above, Psalms 62:8, is the LORD, through David, commanding us to make Him our “refuge,” from the twenty times used word machaceh.

The same word (machaceh) is used in the previous verse, telling us our “refuge” is in God, who is the Rock of our strength. We understand the rock describes something firm on which we can rely, trusting it will not change. When personified, it represents the place from where words flow as advice (counsel) to be followed (obeyed).

Friends, we live in a time of mass insanity, when the majority of those in power, at war against the people at large they speak to, give advice that has (make evil decrees that have) no connection to reality. They tell us the economy is good while they intentionally drain life from it through confiscatory inflation, taxation, and interest rates. To demoralize us, the insane tell us good is evil, evil is good, wrong is right, right is wrong, normal is abnormal, and abnormal is normal. Their intention is depopulation through destructive policies (decrees) that weaponize institutions and industries: education, media, food, entertainment, religion, finance, health, and justice, all to destroy achievement and remove sanity from policies that lead to population increase through security in life, liberty, and property. In other words, these manically insane powers, by corrupting all language, are destroying (murdering) the world while (delusionally) believing they are its saviors. They are the antichrist, the many false Christs, false teachers, and false prophets, false rocks in church and state, of whom the LORD says, “Come out from among them that you be not partakers in their plagues.”

As we know, the word selah, meaning “suspension (of music [of the words you repeat]), i.e. pause,” speaks of stopping (words and actions) and thinking (critically) about what (things of critical importance) was just stated.

Psalms 62
1 Truly my soul waited upon God: from him comes my salvation [yshuw’ah – the true Jesus, Jehovah manifesting His presence in the flesh of those He sends as saviors with His good advice].
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved [by the false rocks in power].
3 How long will you imagine mischief [hathath – only used hear, meaning to assail and speak] against a man [in whom the LORD has chosen to manifest His presence in His words]? you shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall [the falling of which comes suddenly, in an instant] shall you be, and as a tottering fence [as the gate of hell ready to be trampled down by the LORD’s presence]
4 They [all the world’s powers] only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly [all humanity]. Selah.
5 My soul, wait you only upon God; for my expectation [the destruction of the spiritually wicked in power] is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus in me]: he is my defense; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge [machaceh], is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out [shaphak – pour out His word from] your heart [your minds] before him [paniym – as His true Rocks manifesting His presence, Jesus, alive in you]: God is a refuge [machaceh] for us. Selah.
9 Surely men of low degree are [led, advised, taught into] vanity [worthless in their thoughts], and men of high degree [who’ve led all into blinding darkness] are a lie: to be laid the balance [judged rightly], they are [when weighed against the LORD they are] altogether lighter than vanity [less than worthless].
10 Trust not in oppression [of those in power], and become not vain [worthless] in robbery: if riches [chayil – meaning “a force, whether of men, means or other resources; an army, wealth, virtue, valor, strength”] increase, set not your heart [make them not the foundation of your thoughts, things you think are your refuge] upon them.
11 God has spoken once; twice [before and after my death] have I heard this; that power [‘oz – “strength in various applications (force, security, majesty, praise)” to raise the dead] belongs unto God [alone].
12 Also unto you, O LORD, belongs mercy: for you render to every man according to his work.

Job 12
2 No doubt but you [my accusers] are the people [of vanity], and wisdom shall die [has died] with you [with your death].
3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yea, who [but the dead] knows not such things as these?
4 I Am as one [to whom wisdom has come again from the LORD] mocked of his neighbor, who calls upon God, and he answers him: the just upright [resurrected] man is laughed to scorn [by the dead].
5 He [without understanding] that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp [a guide in the darkness] despised [buwz – held in contempt and shamed] in the thought of him that is at ease [sha’anan – secured by the LORD].
6 The tabernacles of robbers [shadad – the dead] prosper, and they that provoke God are secure [battuchowth – putting their trust in worldly strength]; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly [this power by which they deceive themselves].
7 But ask now the beasts [bhemah – dumb flesh, those who were silent], and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air [who’ve risen into heaven by the LORD’s strength], and they shall tell you:
8 Or speak to the earth [where these things are manifested into reality, ending the old and corrupt and beginning the new], and it shall teach you: and the fishes of the sea [My elect remnant living among humanity at large, below its surface in this deep] shall declare unto you [bringing your end suddenly, in an instant].
9 Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD has wrought this [by which He says, “Here I Am”]?
10 In whose hand [work] is the soul of every living thing, and the breath [life] of all mankind.
11 Does not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?
12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.
13 With him is wisdom and strength, he has counsel and understanding.
14 Behold, he breaks down, and it cannot be built again: he shuts up a man, and there can be no opening.
15 Behold, he withholds the waters [of heaven], and they dry up: also he send them out, and they [His words, these words] overturn the earth.
16 With him is strength [‘oz] and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his.
17 He leads counselors away spoiled, and makes the judges fools.
18 He looses the bond [of death] of kings, and gird [prepares] their loins with a girdle [these provisions, with which He crowns them].
19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthrows the mighty.
20 He removes away the speech of the trusty [who’ve refused these waters], and taketh away the understanding of the aged.
21 He pours contempt upon princes, and weakens the strength of the mighty.
22 He discovers [these] deep things out of darkness [hidden in men’s ignorance], and bringeth out to light [understanding] the shadow of death [which is the ignorance of men in power].
23 He increases the nations [the population of those who haven’t known Him], and destroys them [by the hand those they choose to follow]: he enlarges [scattering them abroad] the nations, and straitens them again [nachah – “to guide; by implication, to transport (into exile, or as colonists)”].
24 He taketh away the heart [the sound mind] of the chief of the people of the earth, and cause them to wander [by going their own ignorant way] in a wilderness where there is no way.
25 They grope in the dark [following their own ignorance] without light [understanding], and he makes them to stagger like a drunken man.

The word nachah, speaking of when the LORD leads (by good advice) His people, is used in this sense in the passages below.

Exodus 15
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host [the army of darkness] has he cast [yarah – flowed His teaching against] into the sea [humanity at large]: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea [at this limit reached, where their proud waves are stayed].
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone [silenced].
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths [understanding held in the darkened deep] were congealed in the heart [minds] of the sea [humanity at large].
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind [and Your Spirit, You unknown, moved upon the face of the darkened waters], the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them [like Korah, as in Revelation 12:16].
13 You in your mercy have led [nachah] forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength unto your holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear [shama’ – and obey], and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina [the invading army].
15 Then the dukes of Edom [the leaders of these enemies among us at war with us] shall be amazed; the mighty men [‘ayil] of Moab [whose mouths are the gates of hell], trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall [be humiliated and] melt away.
16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still [damam – silent] as a stone; till your people pass over [‘abar – passover death into life], O LORD, till the people pass over [‘abar – into life], which you have purchased [qanah – resurrected in Your new creation].
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain [Your now perfected government] of your inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which you have made [Your new creation] for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign forever and ever.

Deuteronomy 32
1 Give ear, O you heavens, and I will speak; and hear [shama’ – and obey], O earth, the words of my mouth.
2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain [from the cloud of 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 from the earth]:
3 Because I will publish the name [identity] of the LORD: ascribe you greatness unto our God.
4 He is the Rock [from where His word flows His teaching, in which we can trust], 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 [indelible mark] is not the spot [indelible mark] of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
6 Do you thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he your father that has bought you? has he not made you, and established you?
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 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 is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste 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, takes them, bears them on her wings:
12 So the LORD alone did lead [nachah] him, 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 out of the Rock [His presence manifested in the flesh speaking and working], and oil [His anointing] out of the flinty Rock [Christ];
14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan [the fruitfulness of His flock], and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and you did drink the pure blood of the grape.
15 But Jeshurun [His people in prosperity that comes from following {obeying} His advice] waxed fat, and kicked [against His leading]: you are waxed fat [in prosperity], you are grown thick, you are covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation [yshuw’ah – Joshua: Jesus: Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the perpetual son of His choosing].
16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations [they created and put in His place] provoked they him to anger.
17 They sacrificed unto devils [misleaders telling them their abomination are their gods], 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.
19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
20 And he said, I will hide my face [paniym – My presence] from them, I will see what their end [‘achariyth – in these last days] shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities [their worthless words and ways]: and I will move them to jealousy with those [the elect remnant I have chosen] which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
22 For a fire is kindled in my anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell [as it does], and shall consume the [old and corrupt] earth with her increase [as it has], and set on fire the [corrupt] foundations of the mountains [their current, devil possessed, church and state governments].

Job 38
16 Have you entered into the springs of the sea [these life-giving waters intended to save all who receive and obey them]? or have you walked in the search of the depth [the deep understanding reserved therein]?
17 Have the gates of death [and hell] been opened unto you? or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death?
18 Have you perceived the breadth [the end and beginning] of the earth? declare if you know it all.
19 Where is the way where light dwell [in those to whom God alone gives it]? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof [with the wise and powerful of this world],
20 That you shouldest take it to the bound thereof [the end of ignorance, in these last days of darkness], and that you shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
21 Know you it, because you were then [thereby] born? or because the number of your days is great?
22 Have you entered into the treasures of the snow [My word I reserved, froze, in the cloud for this moment]? or have you seen the treasures of the hail [this understanding from there sent against the current corrupt crop misleaders],
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble [tsar – by enemies in our midst, as tyrants in power], against the day of battle and war [which none can any longer doubt is raging around us]?
24 By what way is the light parted [into the many colors of the bow now seen in the cloud], which scatters the east wind [The LORD’s Spirit working, unseen moving] upon the earth?
25 Who has [rightly] divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters [who, as I Am, has sent these words revealing men’s trespasses beyond the LORD’s set limits], or a way for the lightning [understanding to come against them from heaven] of thunder [qowl – by LORD’s voice heard from there];
26 To cause it to rain [these waters from heaven] on the earth, where no [living] man is; on the wilderness [the earth the dead have made desolate: without form and void], wherein there is no man [with this light, which is life];
27 To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth [on this third day of creation]?
28 Has the rain a father? or who has begotten the drops of dew [this word that now appears on earth]?
29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who has gendered it [made it bring forth children]?
30 The waters are hid as with a stone [I Am, the Rock through whom it flows from the LORD], and the face of the deep [my presence revealed from where it] is frozen.
31 Can you bind the sweet influences [qashar ma’adannah – compact into a group, referring to the madad, the end of the course plotted] of Pleiades [kiymah – a constellation of seven celestial lights], or loose the bands [open the understanding] of Orion [kciyl – of the constellations]?
32 Can you bring forth Mazzaroth [the true meaning in the Zodiac, the plan of God’s salvation therein presented and passed on verbally, before the written word] in his season [at this appointed time]? or can you guide [nachah – transport] Arcturus [‘ash – Ursa Major, the fold, and the great flock – referring to Asher as spoken of in Deuteronomy 33:24 – 29] with his sons?
33 Know you the ordinances of heaven? can you set the dominion thereof [when heaven rules over the earth, when I establish My government here and now] in the earth?
34 Can you lift up your voice to the clouds [where My word is reserved for this time of war], that abundance of waters may cover you?
35 Can you send lightnings [this understanding from the cloud], that they may go and say unto you, Here we are [as My words say “Here I Am”]?
36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart [mind]?
37 Who can number [caphar – declare in writing] the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay [stop] the bottles of heaven [to keep this understanding there],
38 When the dust [the ruin of the earth] grows into hardness, and the clods [regeb] cleave fast together?
39 Will you hunt the prey for the lion [of Judah]? or fill the appetite of the young lions [“I and the children the LORD has given me are for signs and wonders” among His people],
40 When they couch [shachach – humble themselves and become obedient] in their dens, and abide in the covert [cukkah – their booths: tabernacles] to lie in wait [for their LORD]?
41 Who provides for the raven [those covered in the darkness of their own ignorance] his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander [into apostasy: the darkness of ignorance] for lack of meat [without this deep understanding only He provides].

Deuteronomy 33
1 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.
2 And he said, The LORD [Jehovah] came from Sinai [against thorns – the misleader mixed among us], and rose up from Seir [against the rulers of Edom – devils ruling over us] unto them; he shined [sent His understanding as light] forth from mount Paran [clarity in which His presence is clearly seen], and he came with ten thousands of saints [as Enoch prophesied, saying, “Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” From Jude 1:14 & 15, as in Revelation 14:1]: from his right hand went a fiery law [dath] for them.
3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in your hand: and they sat down at your feet; everyone shall receive of your words [and thereby become the LORD’s children].
4 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.
5 And he was king in Jeshurun [among the LORD’s people who by obeying these things prospered], when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were gathered together [into ONE BODY].

24 And of Asher [happy – those who’ve found the true happiness they’ve pursued] he said, Let Asher be blessed [happy] with children [who are now born into this new earth, wherein dwells righteousness]; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil [shemem – walk in the way of his anointing].
25 Your shoes shall be iron and brass; and as your days [of old], so shall your strength be [risen here and now again into life].
26 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun [by whom His people prosper], who rides upon the heaven [with full understanding] in your help, and in his excellency on the sky.
27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before you; and shall say, Destroy them.
28 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone [without enemies mixed among them]: the fountain of Jacob [these living waters] shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew [when the word of God appears on the earth].
29 Happy are you, O Israel: who is like unto you, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of your help, and who is the sword of your excellency! and your enemies shall be found liars unto you; and you shall tread upon their high places.

The LORD only uses the word nachah twice, in Isaiah 57:18 & 58:11, after its appearance in Proverbs 18:16, all flowing hereafter.

Proverbs 18
1 Through desire a man [as was woman desired to know wisdom, and therefor ate from the tree – Genesis 3:6], having separated himself [parad – from the LORD, into the advice of serpents], seeks [searches] and intermeddles [mixing their own ignorance] with all wisdom.
2 A fool has no delight in understanding [because it opposes his desire], but that his heart may discover [find ways to justify] itself [his own creation: opinions and delusions].
3 When [by this the fool becomes] the wicked comes, then comes also contempt [of wisdom and understanding], and with ignominy reproach [this shame exposed in words].
4 The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters [showing the deep thoughts of the mind], and the wellspring [words] of wisdom as a flowing brook [flowing to any who desire it].
5 It is not good to accept [exalt] the person [paniym – the manifestation of wickedness in the words] of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
6 A fool’s lips enter into contention [with the righteous], and his mouth calls for strokes [the punishment of those opposing wickedness].
7 A fool’s mouth [speaking words of ignorance] is his destruction, and his lips are the snare [condemning] of his soul.
8 The words of a talebearer [slanderer, false accuser] are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly [of hell].
9 He also that is slothful in his work [refusing to follow {obey} and take up His cross] is brother to him that is a great waster [destroyer all that is good and normal].
10 The name [identity] of the LORD [manifested in His words] is a strong tower [migdal – Micah 4: 8 And you, O tower {migdal} of the flock, the strong hold 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.]: the righteous runs into it, and is safe.
11 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city [which he believes will protect him], and as a high wall in his own conceit [thinking he wise he thinks he is protected].
12 Before destruction the heart [mind] of man is haughty [in pride he exalts himself], and before [paniyn – the LORD’s presence, His Spirit in us bringing our spirit to life, which is] honor is humility.
13 He that answers [shuwb] a matter [dabar – returns words] before he hears [shama’ – before he hears it from the LORD, and obeying repeats it as he received] it, it is folly and shame unto him.
14 The spirit of a man will sustain [restrain him] his infirmity [his weakness, when he is without understanding]; but a wounded [nake’ – a four times used word referring us to Isaiah 16] spirit who can bear [who can raise it up]? [Isaiah 16:6 We have heard of the pride of Moab {men whose mouths are the gates of hell}; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so {shall not stand}. 7 Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab, every one shall howl: for the foundations {of these men’s minds} of Kirhareseth {wall of potsherds, which protects against nothing} shall you mourn; surely they are stricken {nake’ – wounded by their own pride and haughtiness}.]
15 The heart of the prudent gets knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16 A man’s gift [giving these treasures as the LORD has given them] makes room for him, and brings him before great men.
17 He that is first in his own cause seems just [saying he has wisdom and knowledge]; but his neighbor comes and searches him.
18 The lot [gowral – referring us to Proverbs 16:32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that rules his spirit than he that taketh a city. 33 The lot {gowral} is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.] causes contentions to cease, and parts [parad – shows who is joined with the LORD and who is separated from Him, into following the advice of serpents] between the mighty.
19 A brother offended [whose contentions never cease because of the pride and haughtiness of his spirit] is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle [keeping the LORD out, even when He has cast the lot and shown Himself present and joined with the one with whom the contend: I Am].
20 A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth [words, good or evil, speaking life or death]; and with the increase [profiting from his talents, these treasures the LORD has given us] of his lips shall he be filled.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love [with] it [the tongue] shall eat the fruit thereof.
22 Whoso finds a wife [woman – a faithful church] finds a good thing, and obtains favor of the LORD.
23 The poor [without worldly power of force] use entreaties [humble words]; but the rich answer roughly [with the violence of “dark sentences:” evil decrees by which men now rule the world].
24 A man that has friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend [I Am] that sticks closer than a brother.

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

Isaiah 28
14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, you scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
15 Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge [machaceh], and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus says the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone [the Rock, I Am], a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste [and flee away in shame].
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge [machaceh] of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [shmuw’ah – to understand it is the voice of Jehovah heard and obeyed].
20 For the bed [of those sleeping in death and hell] is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself [to hide] in it.
21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon [when He called His people at large to join Him in the destruction of those who’ve caused strife among them throughout history], that he may do his work [declaring His word as His presence], his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act [that only he knows].
22 Now therefore be you not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the LORD God of hosts a consumption [kalah], even determined [charats] upon the whole earth.
23 Give you ear, and hear [shama’ – obey it, because it is] my voice; hearken, and hear [shama’ – and obey it, because it is] my speech.

Isaiah 58
1 Cry aloud [as the LORD’s messengers], spare not, lift up your voice like a [last] trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.
3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and you see not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and you take no knowledge? [As referred to in Isaiah 42:19, the LORD’s perfect servant, His messenger, who is blind and deaf to the corruption men created and put in His place.] Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exact all your labors [Going your own ways, saying you have done all these things in My name, while you oppose Me and refuse My words – see Matthew 7:21].
4 Behold, you fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: you shall not fast as you do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.
5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? will you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?
6 Is not this the fast [abstaining from your own words] that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?
7 Is it not to deal your bread [this word the LORD has given us] to the hungry, and that you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? when you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh [those who are our ONE BODY]?
8 Then shall your light [understanding] break forth [upon the enemies] as the morning [of this new creation of heaven and earth], and your health shall spring forth [as new life] speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you [paniym – shall manifest My presence]; the glory of the LORD [in you] shall be your reward.
9 Then shall you call, and the LORD shall answer; you shall cry, and he shall say, Here I Am. If you take away from the midst of you the yoke [joining you with the wicked in power in church and state], the putting forth of the finger [falsely accusing the innocent just because they indict the wicked in power], and speaking vanity [worthlessness];
10 And if you draw out your soul to the hungry [who need this word], and satisfy the afflicted soul [with this word]; then shall your light rise [then shall this understanding be exalted] in obscurity, and your darkness be as the [and where ignorance was it shall be as bright as] noon day:
11 And the LORD shall guide [nachah] you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of [life giving] water, whose waters fail not.
12 And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places: you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
13 If you turn away your foot from the sabbath [when I interrupt your work to correct you back onto this right path], from doing your pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shall honor him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words [but speaking the words I give you]:
14 Then shall you delight yourself in the LORD; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.

Psalms 5
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto you will I pray.
3 My voice shall you hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto you, and will look up.
4 For you are not a God that has pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with you.
5 The foolish shall not stand in your sight: you hate all workers of iniquity.
6 You shall destroy them that speak leasing [falsehood]: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, I will come into your house in the multitude of your mercy: and in your fear will I worship toward your holy temple.
8 Lead [nachah] me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before my face [paniym – in Your presence].
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulcher [speaking death]; they flatter with their tongue.
10 Destroy you them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all those that put their trust in you rejoice: let them ever shout [your words] for joy, because you defend them: let them also that love your name [idenity] be joyful in you.
12 For you, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor will you compass him as with a shield.

Make me to go in the path of your commandments; for therein do I delight.

19 – 21 May 2024

Make me to go in the path of your commandments; for therein do I delight.

The above, as I have come to begin all these messages, realizing the LORD is with me always, is me opening His word (today to Psalms 119:35), not randomly, but as He in me, supernaturally by my hand, opens it, and from there begins to speak, leading me, us, on His path to light (understanding).

The Hebrew words rendered “Make me to go in the path” are darak nathiyb, meaning “to tread; by implication, to walk; also to string a bow (by treading on it in bending),” and “to tramp; a (beaten) track.”

In the first of these (darak), the LORD refers us back to the previous post and Isaiah 42:16, where He tells us it’s a way the blind haven’t known, into which He says, “I will lead them.”

Isaiah 42
16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them [dakar] in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light [will reveal to them these things they haven’t known because they’ve been hidden in the ignorance men created and taught] before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images [men created and put in My place], that say to the molten images [they formed], You are our gods.
18 Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.
19 Who is blind, but my servant [not seeing anything that the corrupt world sees]? or deaf [not hearing the corrupt words of men who’ve destroyed all truth], as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’s servant?
20 Seeing many things, but you observe not [the idols of men]; opening the ears, but he hears not [the things of men].
21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable.
22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore [shuwb – return the understanding you have taken away].
23 Who among you will give ear to this [and hear the voice of the LORD]? who will hearken and hear [shama’ – and obey] for the time to come [‘achown – now in these last days of darkness]?
24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned [chata’ – to miss {His presence}]? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.

This last verse defines the crux of the matter, which takes us to the first two uses of the word mitsvah, rendered “commandments,” defining (in Genesis 26:5 and Exodus 15:26) the prime command (obeying the voice of the LORD), even before any written commandments.

Genesis 26
3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for unto you, and unto your seed [of the promise], I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore unto Abraham your father; [In Genesis 22:17 & 18, saying “That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed {shama’} my voice {qowl}.”]
4 And I will make your seed [Isaac’s – the son of the promise that is by faith in the Father with us speaking to us] to multiply [those who have the same faith] as the stars of heaven, and will give unto your seed all these countries; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
5 Because that Abraham obeyed [shama’ – heard the voice as the LORD’s and became obedient to] my voice [qowl], and kept [shamar] my charge [mishmereth – to guard and preserve My words from men’s corruption], my commandments [mitsvah], my statutes, and my laws [towrah – the word’s first use, the Law, to this point only spoken].

Exodus 15
1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spoke, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously [ga’ah – a five times used word speaking of the pattern of victory over the enemies {Edom} mixed among us, and the mouth of those {Moab} that are the gates of hell]: the horse and his rider has he thrown [ramah – deceived] into the sea.
2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh, therein hidden from the ignorant]: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation [in my, our, flesh]; my father’s God, and I will exalt him [His voice above all others].
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host [the army of darkness] has he cast [yarah – flowed His teaching against] into the sea [humanity at large]: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea [at this limit reached, where their proud waves are stayed].
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone [silenced].
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths [understanding held in the darkened deep] were congealed in the heart [minds] of the sea [humanity at large].
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind [and Your Spirit, You unknown, moving upon the face of the darkened waters], the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them [like Korah, as in Revelation 12:16].
13 You in your mercy have led forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength unto your holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear [shama’ – and obey], and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina [the invading army].
15 Then the dukes of Edom [the leaders of these enemies among us at war with us] shall be amazed; the mighty men [‘ayil] of Moab [whose mouths are the gates of hell], trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall [be humiliated and] melt away.
16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still [damam – silent] as a stone; till your people pass over [‘abar – passover death into life], O LORD, till the people pass over [’abar – into life], which you have purchased [qanah – resurrected in Your new creation].
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain [Your now perfected government] of your inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which you have made [Your new creation] for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign forever and ever.
19 For the horse of Pharaoh [the great house of wickedness in power] went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.
20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
21 And Miriam answered them, Sing you to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously [ga’ah]; the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur [wall about them – the lies they learned under their oppressors]; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah [bitter], they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter [mar – polluted with wickedness, as now in this land]: therefore the name of it was called Marah. [Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter {mar} for sweet {mathowq}, and sweet {matowq} for bitter {mar}! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!]
24 And the people murmured [luwn – remained in ignorance] against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD showed him [yarah – flowed waters to Him from] a tree [of life], which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet [mathaq – a five times used word wherein the LORD refers us to its uses in Psalms 55:14 and Proverbs 9:17 – see below]: there he made for them a statute [choq – a decree] and an ordinance [mishpat – judgment], and there he proved them [nacah – to make them believe He was present with them, speaking from the tree of life],
26 And said, If you will diligently hearken to [shama’ – obey] the voice [qowl] of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments [mitsvah], and keep [shamar – guard and protect from corruption] all his statutes [choq – the things here decreed], I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians [your oppressors, the tyrant is power]: for I am the LORD that heals [rapha’] you.
27 And they came to Elim [the palms – from ‘aiyl, as in verse 15 above; here the mighty man, the tree, strengthened by understanding received, who prevails against the gates of hell], where were twelve [the perfection of God’s Government] wells of water [men in power from whom His word flows righteousness], and threescore and ten [God’s setting all things in their right order] palm trees: and they encamped there by the [life-giving] waters.

Psalms 55
1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not yourself from my supplication.
2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror has overwhelmed me.
6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove [Oh that fables men created about this end time were true, the sweet words of the false prophet who’ve led God’s people into their fall away from truth]! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
7 Lo, then would I wander far off [rachaq – flee from this time when the earth is ruled by evil decree], and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest [ca’ar – the whirlwind from where the LORD’s word is heard and fulfilled].
9 Destroy, O LORD, and divide their tongues: for I have [in their words] seen violence and strife in the city.
10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof [speaking their fables and causing God’s people to trust in their false words]: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
13 But it was you, a man my equal [‘erek – who before set things in their right order], my guide [‘alluwph – a leader of God’s people], and my acquaintance [yada’ – one who should know better].
14 We took sweet [mathaq] counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company. [1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists {resisting and opposing this word of God}; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 20 But you have an unction from the Holy One, and you know all things.]
15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell [let the earth swallow them]: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
18 He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abides of old. Selah. Because they have no changes [chaliyphah – they refuse to come from death into life, refuse to put off corruption: their garment spotted by the flesh], therefore they fear not God.
20 He has put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he has broken his covenant.
21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
22 Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. [1 Thessalonians 3: 8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the LORD.]
23 But you, O God, shall bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in you.

Proverbs 9
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
11 For by me your days shall be multiplied, and the years of your life shall be increased.
12 If you be wise, you shall be wise for yourself: but if you scorn, you alone shall bear it.
13 A foolish woman [churches led away by false prophets and false teachers, teaching that feelings provoked by fables should outweigh a sound mind able to critically think] is clamorous: she is simple, and knows nothing.
14 For she sits at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,
15 To call passengers who go right on their ways:
16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that want understanding, she says to him,
17 Stolen [ganah – deceiving] waters are sweet [mathaq], and bread eaten in secret [not knowing it is corrupted by deception] is pleasant [na’em – is easy to agree with {because of its sweetness}].
18 But he knows not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

It is of these men and women the LORD speaks in the other two uses of the word mathaq, in Job 20:12 & 21:33.

Job 20
5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
6 Though his excellency mount up to the heavens [saying they are places where understanding is found], and his head reach unto the clouds [where it is reserved];
7 Yet he shall perish forever like his own dung [the excrement they teach]: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
8 He shall fly away as a dream [like their false teaching, which shall be removed from the earth], and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night [the creation of the ignorant].
9 The eye also which saw him shall see him no more [there false teaching]; neither shall his place [where understanding should be found] any more behold him.
10 His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.
11 His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust [the ruin of the earth under their false teaching and misleading].
12 Though wickedness be sweet [mathaq] in his mouth, though he hide it [deception] under his tongue;
13 Though he spare it [chamal – though he speaks of compassion and sympathy], and forsake it not; but keep it [deception with malice] still within his mouth:
14 Yet his meat [his deep understanding] in his bowels is turned [to excrement when his speaks it], it is the gall [mrorah] of asps within him [it’s the bitterness of a serpents mouth].
15 He has swallowed down riches [these treasures of the LORD he holds in the belly of hell], and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.

Job 21
27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which you wrongfully imagine against me.
28 For you say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked? [when you know where I Am and where you are.]
29 Have you not asked them that go by the way [as if you don’t know]? and do you not know their tokens [have you realized yet what these are signs of],
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 [who will declare the LORD’s way is in manifesting His presence in the day of His wrath and the destruction of the wicked]? and who shall repay him what he has done [‘asah – what He has made, accomplishing His new creation]?
32 Yet shall he [the wicked] be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb [among the dead].
33 The clods of the valley [the hardness of the earth without the LORD’s word from the clouds] shall be sweet [mathaq] unto him, and every man shall draw after him [all that receive their sweet word of deception shall be drawn into death with them], as there are innumerable [dead] before him [paniym – present with them in hell].
34 How then comfort you me in vain, seeing in your answers there remains falsehood?

The word rendered “clods” in verse 33 above is regeb, with only appears one other time, in Job 38:38 as the LORD is speaking to him from the whirlwind (ca’ar).

Job 38
33 Know you the ordinances of heaven? can you set the dominion thereof [when heaven rules over the earth, when I establishes My government here] in the earth?
34 Can you lift up your voice to the clouds [where My word is reserved for this time of war], that abundance of waters may cover you?
35 Can you send lightnings [this understanding from the cloud], that they may go and say unto you, Here we are [as My words say “Here I Am”]?
36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart [mind]?
37 Who can number [caphar – declare in writing] the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay [stop] the bottles of heaven [to keep this understanding there],
38 When the dust [the ruin of the earth] grows into hardness, and the clods [regeb] cleave fast together?
39 Will you hunt the prey for the lion [of Judah]? or fill the appetite of the young lions [“I and the children the LORD has given me are for signs and wonders“ among His people],
40 When they couch [shachach – humble themselves and become obedient] in their dens, and abide in the covert [cukkah – their booths: tabernacles] to lie in wait [for their LORD]?
41 Who provides for the raven [those covered in the darkness of their own ignorance] his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander [in the darkness] for lack of meat [without this deep understand only He provides].

The word m’ownah, rendered “den” in verse 40 above, only used nine times, refers us to its first use in Deuteronomy 33:27 and later to Amos 3:4.

Deuteronomy 33
26 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun [under whose rule we prosper], who rides upon the heaven in your help, and in his excellency on the sky.
27 The eternal God is your refuge [m’ownah], and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before you; and shall say, Destroy them.
28 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land [‘erets – the earth] of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.
29 Happy are you, O Israel: who is like unto you, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of your help, and who is the sword of your excellency! and your enemies shall be found liars unto you; and you shall tread upon their high places.

Amos 3
3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed [on the time and place]?
4 Will a lion [of Judah] roar in the forest, when he has no prey? will a young lion [the children the LORD has given me] cry out of his den [m’ownah], if he have taken nothing [opening their mouths with the meat he provided]?
5 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is [where no trap is set] for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all?
6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil [ra’] in a city, and the LORD has not done it [‘asah – made it understood at the agreed time]?
7 Surely the LORD God will do nothing, but he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets.
8 The lion [of Judah] has roared [His voice as the trumpet sounding], who will not fear? the LORD God has spoken, who can but prophesy [speak His revealed word as commanded]?

Psalms 119
33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
35 Make me to go [darak] in the path [nathiyb] of your commandments [mitsvah]; for therein do I delight.
36 Incline my heart unto your testimonies, and not to covetousness.
37 Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken you me [into life] in your way.
38 Establish your word unto your servant, who is devoted to your fear.
39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for your judgments are good.
40 Behold, I have longed after your precepts: quicken me [to life] in your righteousness.
41 Let your mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even your salvation, according to your word.
42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproaches me: for I trust in your word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in your judgments.
44 So shall I keep your law continually forever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek your precepts.
46 I will speak of your testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
47 And I will delight myself in your commandments [mitsvah], which I have loved.
48 My hands also will I lift up unto your commandments [mitsvah], which I have loved; and I will meditate in your statutes.

Jeremiah 11
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying,
2 Hear [shama’ – and obey] you the words of this covenant, and speak [these words I’ve given you] unto the men of Judah [the current crop of corrupt leaders], and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem [God’s people at large who follow and obey these leaders];
3 And say you unto them, Thus says the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeys [shama’] 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 [shama’] my voice [qowl], 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 [shama’ – and obey] 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 [shama’] my voice.
8 Yet they obeyed [shama’] not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil [ra’] 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 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 [shama’ – and obey] 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 [ra’] upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken [shama’ – and obey and give their requests] 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 [ra’].
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 [shama’ – will not obey or give them what they request] them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble [ra’].
15 What has my beloved to do in my house, seeing she has wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from you? when you do evil [ra’], 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 [ra’] against you, for the evil [ra’] 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 [of life] with the fruit [lechem – the bread] 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 [whose prayers the LORD answers, but not giving them what they requested], that seek your life, 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 [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth against] them: the young men shall die by the sword [the word they refuse to hear as My word and obey]; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine [without this bread]:
23 And there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring evil [ra’] upon the men of Anathoth [which is my answer to their prayer], even the year of their visitation [pquddah – now in MY presence as the Chief Overseer of the earth].

Jeremiah 25
27 Therefore you shall say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Drink you [your own evil words], and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword [this word they refuse] which I will send among you.
28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at your hand to drink, then shall you say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts; You shall certainly drink [your own evil words].
29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil [ra’a’] on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword [this word to be heard] upon all the inhabitants of the earth, says the LORD of hosts.
30 Therefore prophesy you against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation [ma’own]; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout [from His archangel, which is as a trumpet sounding], as they that tread [darak] the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth [ending the old and beginning the new]; for the LORD has a controversy [riyb – about who is best suited to rule the earth, the LORD who made it or those who’ve brought it to ruin] with the nations [who haven’t known Him], he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword [this word they refuse shall be manifested into reality, as warned], says the LORD.
32 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil [ra’] shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind [ca’ar – from where the LORD’s voice is heard] shall be raised up [‘uwr – awakened] from the coasts of the [end of the old and beginning the new] earth.
33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the [old] earth even unto the other end [the beginning] of the [new] earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they [their animated dead flesh] shall be dung upon the ground.
34 Howl, you shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes [of the old earth you’ve brought to ruin], you principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and you shall fall like a pleasant vessel [become a desolation].
35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.
36 A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard: for the LORD has spoiled their pasture.
37 And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
38 He has forsaken his covert, as the lion: for their land is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and because of his fierce anger.

Isaiah 63
1 Who is this that comes from Edom [from the battle against the enemies mixed among us], with dyed garments from Bozrah [from the sheepfold, the strong hold of the enemy]? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength [His understanding]? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
2 Wherefore are you red in your apparel, and your garments like him that treads [darak] in the winefat [gath – only used five time, meaning “a wine-press (or vat for holding the grapes in pressing them)”]?
3 I have trodden [darak] the winepress [of My wrath] alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread [darak] them in my anger, and trample [ramac – a nineteen time used word referring us to Ezekiel 34:18, where the reason is given why the LORD alone tread these grapes, because all other have fouled those they tread which unwashed feet: the corruption picked up in the journey] them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.
4 For the day of vengeance is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore my own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
6 And I will tread down [buwc – referring to its use below in verseb18] the people in my anger, and make them drunk [under the influence of the fouled wine they’ve consumed] in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to [remove the understanding of] the earth.
7 I will mention the loving-kindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all [these treasures] that the LORD has bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he has bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude [of His divine charity] of his loving-kindnesses.
8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Savior.
9 In all their affliction he was [I Am] afflicted, and the angel [mal’ak – messenger] of his presence [paniym – in whom He manifests His presence] saved them: in his love [long suffering to give this word and declare it is His presence alive in me working and speaking unknown] and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit [among them working and speaking unknown]: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he [in whose flesh is He now manifested, from whom His word is poured out, which evidence says “hear I Am”] that put his holy Spirit within him [Moses, the flesh in which the LORD chose to lead them]?
12 That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them [as He does this day, in these last days of darkness], to make himself an everlasting name [an identity that cannot be denied]?
13 That led them through the deep [revealing these treasure from heaven], as a horse in the wilderness [with the strength to carry them in this time of desolation], that they should not stumble?
14 As a beast goes down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD caused him to rest: so did you lead your people, to make yourself a glorious name.
15 Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of your holiness and of your glory: where is your zeal and your strength, the sounding of your bowels [His word from within my flesh] and of your mercies toward me? are they restrained?
16 Doubtless you are our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: you, O LORD, are our father, our redeemer; your name is from everlasting.
17 O LORD, why have you made us to err from your ways, and hardened our heart from your fear? Return for your servants’ sake, the tribes of your inheritance.
18 The people of your holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries [the misleading shepherd who lead God’s people] have trodden down [buwc] your sanctuary.
19 We are yours [alone LORD]: you never bare rule over them [the shepherds of corruption, who’ve fouled My pasture with their unwashed feet]; they were not called by your name [not called by You to manifest Your identity].

In Ezekiel 34, when the LORD speaks to the “shepherds” and of “feeding” the word is ra’ah, which we know has an affinity with the word (also transliterating to ra’ah) meaning to “see.”

Ezekiel 34
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man [I Am], prophesy against the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus says the LORD God unto the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers]; Woe be to the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] of Israel that do feed [ra’ah – see for] themselves! should not the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] feed [ra’ah – see for] the flocks?
3 You eat the fat, and you clothe you with the wool, you kill them that are fed [ra’ah – by the things you see for yourselves]: but you feed [ra’ah – see] not [for] the flock.
4 The diseased have you not strengthened [with My word I give you], neither have you healed [with My word I give you] that which was sick, neither have you bound up [with My word] that which was broken, neither have you brought again [into My presence] that which was [by you] driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty [of your deceptions and misleading] have you ruled them [into ruin].
5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd [ra’ah – no seer]: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of [paniym – from My presence on] the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
7 Therefore, you shepherds [ra’ah – seers], hear the word of the LORD;
8 As I live, says the LORD God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field [all those on the earth without My Spirit], because there was no shepherd [ra’ah – no seers], neither did my shepherds [ra’ah -seers] search for my flock, but the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] fed [ra’ah – saw for] themselves, and fed not [ra’ah – and see not for] my flock;
9 Therefore, O you shepherds [ra’ah – blind seers], hear the word of the LORD;
10 Thus says the LORD God; Behold, I Am against the shepherds [ra’ah – these blind seers]; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding [ra’ah – from seeing for] the flock; neither shall the shepherds [ra’ah – these blind seers] feed [ra’ah – see for] themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth [their words by which the devours and swallow into the belly of hell], that they may not be meat for them.
11 For thus says the LORD God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
12 As a shepherd [ra’ah – as a good seers] seeks out his flock in the day that he is [as I Am] among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy [when understanding has been removed from the earth and is held there with Me alone] and dark day [when the earth is cover in mass ignorance of Me and My way].
13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land [‘adamah – this new generation of man I create], and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers [of these life giving waters], and in all the inhabited places of the country [‘erets – this new earth I create].
14 I will feed [ra’ah – see for] them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains [My new government I’ve created] of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed [ra’ah – see for them] upon the mountains [leading My new government that rules over the new earth] of Israel [in whom I reign and rule].
15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, says the LORD God.
16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed [ra’ah – see for] them with [good] judgment.
17 And as for you, O my flock, thus says the LORD God; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats. [see Matthew 25 below]
18 Seem it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but you must tread down [ramac] with your feet the residue of your pastures [you’ve defiled]? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but you must foul the residue with your feet [of your deep understanding that is corrupted, by your feet which must be washed]?
19 And as for my flock, they eat that which you have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which you have fouled with your feet.
20 Therefore thus says the LORD God unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle [between those who refuse to wash their feet of the corruption and those have purified themselves and are thereby able to see My presence and see for the flock].
21 Because you have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad;
22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
23 And I will set up one shepherd [ra’ah – One seer] over them [My Chief Overseer of the earth, Who I have chosen, not as man sees, but by the heart only I see and know], and he shall feed [ra’ah – see for] them, even my servant David [I Am]; he shall feed [ra’ah – see for] them, and he shall be their shepherd [ra’ah – their seer].
24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.
25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts [the dead ruling the world without My Spirit] to cease out of the land [‘erets – the new earth I’ve created]: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness [among the desolation, upon which we shall build], and sleep in the woods [not fearing the evil beast].
26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill [My new government] a blessing; and I will cause the shower [my word from heaven] to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.
27 And the tree [of life] of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land [‘adamah – this new generation of man], and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.
28 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen [who haven’t known Me], neither shall the beast [the dead without My Spirit] of the land [‘erets – of the old earth] devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.
29 And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger [by not hearing the word of God] in the land [‘erets – in the new earth], neither bear the shame of the heathen [the consequences of following those without the LORD’s Spirit, who make promises they are unable, and never intended, to bring into reality] any more.
30 Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, says the LORD God.
31 And you my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I Am your God, says the LORD God.

John 13
3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
4 He rises from [this] supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
5 After that he [as the Rock] poured [out of himself these life giving] water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet [of the corruption they picked up in the journey through the age], and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
6 Then comes he to Simon Peter: and Peter says unto him, LORD, do you wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do you know not now; but you shall know hereafter [because He here and now tells us].
8 Peter says unto him, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash you not [of the corruption, like leaven, that corrupts the whole body], you have no part with me.
9 Simon Peter says unto him, LORD, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus says to him, He that is washed needs not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and you are clean, but not all.
11 For he knew who [Judas: Judah, the leaders, seers, shepherds, who feed themselves] should betray him; therefore said he, You are not all clean.
12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know you what I have done to you? [Ephesians 5: 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.]
13 You call me Master and LORD: and you say well; for so I Am.
14 If I then, your LORD and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
16 Truly, truly, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his LORD; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If you know these things, happy are you if you do them.
18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eat bread with me has lifted up his heel [the blind seers, exalting their corruption above My words] against me.
19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass [as it now has], you may believe that I am he.

Matthew 15
7 You hypocrites, well did Esaias [in Isaiah 29:13] prophesy of you, saying,
8 This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart [mind] is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the [corrupt] commandments of men.
10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goes into the mouth defile a man; but that [words] which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Know you that the Pharisees [the religious dividers, the blind seers] were offended, after they heard this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant [of renown], which my heavenly Father has not planted [who exalt themselves above the Father’s planting], shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Isaiah 29
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry you out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For the LORD has poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers has he covered.
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous [eye opening] work among this people, even a marvelous [eye opening] work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who sees [ra’ah] us? and who knows us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work [ma’aseh – what He has made] say of him that made [‘asah] it, He made [‘asah] me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

Jeremiah 6
16 Thus says the LORD, Stand you in the ways, and see [ra’ah], and ask for the old paths [nathiyb], where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
17 Also I set watchmen [tsaphah – Overseers, who see these hidden treasures] over you, saying, Hearken to the sound [qowl – the voice] of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear [shama’ – and obey], you nations [you who haven’t know Me], and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear [shama’ – and obey], O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.

The only other time Jeremiah uses the word nathiyb appears in Jeremiah 18:15 in a continuation of the above passage.

Jeremiah 18
9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;
10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey [shama’] not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah [the current crop of corrupt leaders, blind shepherds], and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus says the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return you now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.
12 And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.
13 Therefore thus says the LORD; Ask you now among the heathen [those who haven’t known Me], who has heard such things [that there is no hope]: the virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing. [Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none does return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.]
14 Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon [purity seen on high, from where flows these waters] which comes from the rock [from whom they flow] of the field [on the earth]? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another place [a place they haven’t known] be forsaken [as they have forsaken My words]?
15 Because my people has forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths [nathiyb], to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;
16 To make their land [‘erets – the earth] desolate, and a perpetual hissing [their ruin drawing attention to itself]; every one that passes thereby [‘abar – passes over their way from death into life] shall be astonished [not understanding why they choose death], and wag his head [in disbelief and wonder].
17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before [paniym – My Spirit manifesting MY presence against] the enemy; I will show them the back [they shall only see it after I have done it], and not the face [paniym – not knowing it is My presence manifested], in the day of their calamity.
18 Then said they, Come and let us devise devices against Jeremiah [the LORD rising among us to raise His people from death into life]; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.
19 Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.
20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before you [paniym – as Your presence] to speak good for them, and to turn away [shuwb – that they would return to You, and receive Your word, that it wouldn’t be] your wrath [but your good] from [upon] them.

Psalms 119
95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider your testimonies.
96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but your commandment [mitsvah] is exceeding broad.
97 O how love I your law! it is my meditation all the day.
98 You through your commandments [mitsvah] have made me wiser than my enemies: for they are ever with me.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for your testimonies are my meditation.
100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep your precepts.
101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep your word.
102 I have not departed from your judgments: for you have taught me.
103 How sweet are your words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 Through your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
105 Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path [nathiyb].
106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep your righteous judgments.
107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me [into life], O LORD, according unto your word.

Psalms 58 below is titled, Michtam of David. Michtam translates to what, who, this, or that katham, meaning to inscribe indelibly. It is a once used word that appears Jeremiah 2:22, rendered “marked.” The Interlinear Bible renders Michtam as “a secret treasure.”

Jeremiah 2
19 Your own wickedness shall correct you, and your backslidings shall reprove you: know therefore and see [ra’ah] that it is an evil thing [ra’] and bitter [mar], that you have forsaken the LORD your God, and that my fear is not in you, says the LORD God of hosts.
20 For of old time I have broken your yoke, and burst your bands; and you said, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree you wander, playing the harlot.
21 Yet I had planted you a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then are you turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?
22 For though you wash you with nitre, and take you much soap, yet your iniquity is marked [katham – indelibly written] before me [paniym – by My presence manifested, and you are revealed], says the LORD God.
23 How can you say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim [the false gods of this world]? see your way in the valley, know what you have done: you are a swift dromedary traversing her ways [carrying your burden of corrupt through generations];
24 A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind [breathing in any evil spirit] at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her [words to be death and the gates of hell].
25 Withhold your foot from being unshod, and your throat from thirst: but you saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.
26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets.

Psalms 58
Michtam [the secret treasure] of David
1 Do you indeed [keep silent when you should] speak righteousness, O congregation? do you [keep silent when you should] judge uprightly, O you sons of men?
2 Yea [you do], in heart you work wickedness; you weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
3 The wicked are estranged [from God] from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison [in their words] is like the poison [in the mouth] of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stop her ear [refusing to hear and obey the voice of LORD];
5 Which will not hearken [shama’ – and obey] to the voice [qowl] of charmers [‘achash – the small voice], charming [chabar – that fascinate them] never so wisely [chakam – with the wisdom He is teaching].
6 Break their teeth [with which they devour dead flesh], O God, in their mouth [their words]: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
7 Let them melt away [ma’ac] as waters [from broken cisterns, whose explanation hold no water] which run continually [halak – that walk away {in shame}]: when he bends [darak – to walk away, tread] his bow to shoot his arrows [at the understanding of the innocent], let them be as cut in pieces [cut short of their evil destination].
8 As a snail which melts [expends itself by moving on the slime it secretes], let every one of them pass away [halak – as they walk their way]: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun [this light of this new day].
9 Before your pots feel [the heat of] the thorns [the misleader on fire beneath them], he shall take them away as with a whirlwind [sa’ar – with terrible fear], both living, and in his wrath. [Jeremiah 2:12 Be astonished, O you heavens {places where understanding should be found and isn’t}, at this, and be horribly afraid {sa’ar}, be you very desolate, says the LORD. 13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns {bo’r – only used here, from ba’ar, meaning an explanation}, broken cisterns {bo’r}, that can hold no water.]
10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance: he shall wash his feet [of corruption] in the blood of the wicked.
11 So that a man shall say, Truly there is a reward for the righteous: truly he is a God that judges in the earth.

Yea, for your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

14 – 17 May 2024

Yea, for your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

The LORD begins today in a mystery, a strategic secret, above in Psalms 44:22, revealed now in this time of war against the darkness that covers all understanding. It is in it we find the “victory,” when we, with His awakening in us, are quickened from death into life by our confession of His presence in His word we speak as His (identity in His) ONE living BODY.

Paul, the LORD alive in him speaking and working, quotes the above verse in Romans 8:36, speaking to those of us predestined for this moment of awakening, follows it in verse 37, saying, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

The word rendered “more than conquerors” is the once-used Greek work hupernikao, meaning “to vanquish beyond, i.e. gain a decisive victory.”

Paul’s beginning verse 37 with “nay” would appear, at first glance, to contradict Psalms 44:22, which he just cited and affirmed with a “Yea.” A deeper examination of the original text tells us otherwise.

In Psalms 44, the verse is followed with verse 23 saying, “Awake, why sleep you, O LORD? arise, cast us not off forever.”

As background, the Psalm is titled, For the Sons of Korah, Maschil. Korah is a son of Levi who rebelled against Moses and for it was, with his fellow rebels, eventually swallowed by the earth. The word maschil means instruction. These meanings tell us the Psalm is a written instruction to those now in rebellion, refusing to follow and obey the LORD’s instructions through His chosen. It (the Psalm) ends with the epilogue, “To the Chief Musician [natsach – Chief Overseer] upon Shoshannim,” meaning it’s sent to those [first to the first begotten] leading God’s people in repeating the Songs He’s given: and their ONE voice is the last trumpet sounding.

The awakening, spoken of in verse 23, is God’s people opening their mouths and coming to life, as Korah, who, instead of choosing destruction, is changed at this last trump, as the corrupt put on uncorrupted truth and they (put on) their immortality.

We know (among other things, by deeper examination) that Paul’s wording (in Romans 8:37) is a paraphrase of Psalms 44:23 and speaks of the same victory over death. Paul, knowing the word “forever” in the original text is netsach (meaning the goal), also knows it’s the word rendered “victory” in Isaiah 25:8.

When quoting this Isaiah passage in 1 Corinthians 15:54, he (Paul) uses the four-time-used word nikos, always rendered “victory,” and always speaks of the victory over death and the grave (hell, in the earth’s belly) and by whom it comes.

Going deeper, the word nikos appears three times in 1 Corinthians 15 (verses 54, 54 & 57) and once in Matthew 12:20, as the LORD quotes Isaiah 42:3, where the word (rendered “victory” in Matthew) is the Hebrew word ‘emeth and is rendered “truth.”

The point: hear and obey the word of the LORD, put off corruption and put on immortality, or remain in the belly of the earth ending in ruin. Victory and truth are synonymous, both (the goal led to by the Chief Overseer), which, when they come, end death by the LORD long-suffering to raise us from it into life.

Romans 8
27 And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints [knowing they are also in need of this change] according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called [kletos] according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow [know before, the faithful throughout history], he also did predestinate [proorizo – to limit in advance, at this horizon] to be conformed to the image [eikon] of his Son, that he might be [as the first light on the horizon] the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate [proorizo], them he also called [kaleo]: and whom he called [kaleo], them he also justified [dikaioo – freed from corruption]: and whom he justified [freed from corruption], them he also glorified [manifesting His presence in them].
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect [eklektos – His chosen]? It is God that justifies [frees us from corruption and thereby death].
34 Who is he that condemns? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen [egeiro] again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession [entugchano] for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of [agape – freely giving us all things through] Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, [Psalms 44:22 saying,”Yea,” to verse 21 saying “Shall not God search this out? for he knows the secrets of the heart.”] For your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors [hupernikao] through him that loved [agapao – freely gave His treasures to] us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love [agape – this grace given by the Divine charity] of God, which is in Christ Jesus our LORD.

1 Thessalonians 3
8 For now we live, if you stand fast [steko] in the LORD.

Psalms 43
1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2 For you are the God of my strength: why do you cast me off [as in Psalms 44 below]? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out your light [understanding] and your truth [‘emeth – which bring us to the victory]: let them lead me; let them bring me unto your holy hill, and to your tabernacles.
4 Then will I go unto the altar of God [offering the sacrifice in which He delights], unto God [realized] my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise you, O God my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health [yshuw’ah – Jesus] of my countenance [paniym – Your presence manifested in the flesh], and my God.
To the Chief Musician [Natsach – the Chief Overseer who, with these songs, leads into truth and victory]

Psalms 44
Words of Instruction, to be Sung to the Rebels and by them upon Returning
1 We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work you did in their days, in the times of old.
2 How you did drive out the heathen with your hand, and planted them; how you did afflict the people, and cast them out.
3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but your right hand, and your arm, and the light [understanding] of your countenance [paniym – Your presence], because you had a favor unto them.
4 You are my King, O God: command deliverances [yshuw’ah – Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh] for Jacob.
5 Through you will we push down our enemies: through your name [Your Identity] will we tread them under that rise up against us.
6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
7 But you have saved us from our enemies, and have put them to shame that hated us.
8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise your name [Your identity] forever. Selah.
9 But [in our rebellion and rejection of Your leadership] you have cast off, and put us to shame; and go not forth with our armies.
10 You make us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
11 You have given us like sheep appointed for meat; and have scattered us among the heathen.
12 You sell your people for naught, and do not increase your wealth by their price.
13 You make us a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
14 You make us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
15 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face has covered me,
16 For the voice of him that reproaches and blasphemes; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
17 All this is come upon us; yet have we [in our confusion we thought we have] not forgotten you, neither have we dealt falsely in your covenant.
18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from your way;
19 Though you have sore broken us in the place of dragons [tanniyn – by men among us as serpents and whales, devoured us with their wide open mouths and swallowing us into this belly of hell], and covered us with [concealed from us] the shadow of [darkness – ignorance of our own condition, which is] death.
20 If we have forgotten the name of [the identity, His manner in which He reveals Himself as] our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god [which men created and put in His place];
21 Shall not God search [chaqar – penetrate this darkness] this out [as He has]? for he knows the secrets of the heart [mind].
22 Yea, for your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
23 Awake, why sleep you, O LORD? Arise [in us], cast us not off forever [netsach – from Your victory and truth].
24 Wherefore hide you your face [paniym – Your presence, which is only hidden in the ignorance caused by the dragons among you], and forget our affliction and our oppression [which He hasn’t forgotten, but they, the rebels, continually turn to their oppressors thinking these destroyers will save them from themselves]?
25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust [the ruin of the earth led by serpents and whales]: our belly [beten – the belly of hell, of Jonah 2:2] cleaves [dabaq – meaning “to impinge, i.e. cling or adhere; figuratively, to catch by pursuit”] unto [hell on] the earth.
26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for your mercies’ sake.

What part of this isn’t clear yet? What part hasn’t the LORD fully explained? When is it enough?

Ezekiel 33
17 Yet the children of your people say, The way of the LORD is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
20 Yet you say, The way of the LORD is not equal. O you house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.
21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year [the perfection, completion, of the LORD’s government in this new heaven and earth] of our captivity, in the tenth month [ordinal perfection, when all things have been put in their right order], in the fifth day [of His grace and mercy] of the month, that one that had escaped [paliyt, it is referring back to verse 5 of this chapter, where the word malat, meaning to escape, rendered “deliver,” speaks of those who received the warning and acting upon it, escaped what is warned of] out of [corrupt] Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city [of those turned from righteousness, and the wicked who haven’t turned from their wickedness] is smitten [by its own ignorance and insanity].
22 Now the hand of the LORD was upon me in the evening [as darkness was coming], afore he that was escaped [paliyt] came [with this warning]; and had opened my mouth [to speak the LORD’s word], until he came to me in the morning [when this understanding of this new day was come]; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more dumb.
23 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land [‘adamah – the ruin of this last generation] of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land [’erets – the earth]: but we are many; the land [‘erets – the earth] is given us for inheritance.
25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; You eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall you possess the land?
26 You stand upon your sword, you work abomination, and you defile every one his neighbor’s wife: and shall you possess the land [’erets – the earth]?
27 Say you thus unto them, Thus says the LORD God; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
28 For I will lay the land [‘erets – the earth] most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through [‘abar – from death into life].
29 Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.
30 Also, you son of man, the children of your people still are talking against you by the walls [of things that aren’t true] and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that comes forth from the LORD.
31 And they come unto you as the people comes, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear your words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness [betsa’ – dishonesty].
32 And, lo, you are unto them as a very lovely song of one that has a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear your words, but they do them not.
33 And when this comes to pass, (lo, it will come [as it now has],) then shall they know that a prophet has been among them.

Isaiah 25
1 O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2 For you have made of a [corrupt] city a heap; of a defensed city a ruin: a palace of strangers [in power] to be no city; it shall never be built.
3 Therefore shall the strong people [strengthened with Your understanding] glorify you, the city of the terrible [‘ariyts] nations [who haven’t known the present LORD] shall fear you.
4 For you have been a strength to the poor [those without worldly power], a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast [ruwach – the evil spirit] of the terrible ones [‘ariyts] is as a storm against the wall [the houses in Matthew 7:24 thru 27].
5 You shall bring down [kana’ – vanquish, cause to bend their knee] the noise of strangers [who I never knew, as in Matthew 7:22 & 23], as the heat in a dry place [as fire from My mouth against these places that are without My word]; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud [the same fire against the vail covering this understanding]: the branch [zamiyr – only appearing here, meaning pruned, as in their words are cut off] of the terrible ones [‘ariyts] shall be brought low [‘anah – meaning when My people see and obey My commands, meaning “to eye or (generally) to heed, i.e. pay attention; by implication, to respond; by extens. to begin to speak; specifically to sing, shout, testify, announce“].
6 And in this mountain [the LORD’s perfected government] shall the LORD of hosts [I Am, a man of war] make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined [which are here and now freely given in word form].
7 And he will destroy in this mountain [His perfected government] the face [revealing His presence] of the covering [lowt] cast over [luwt] all people, and the vail [covering His presence and his sword, this word from My mouth] that is spread over all nations [all those who haven’t know My presence].
8 He will swallow up death in victory [netsach]; and the LORD God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD has spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain [His here perfected government – which is nothing like all the wise men, all the false prophets and false teachers, all the loudest and most heard voice, said and told, tell, people to look for and forever wait, which will never come, because they are fabrication of deluded minds] shall the hand [this work] of the LORD rest, and Moab [the mouth of men which are the gates of hell] shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim [rightly dividing these waters on this day of My new creation, in the firmament, this exposition, which I call the new heaven]: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
12 And the fortress of the high fort of your walls [their house they built on sand] shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.

The following, ending in Jeremiah 50, is from several previous posts showing the words lowt and luwt speak of the LORD concealing His presence, which He now reveals in a manner only He knows.

As we know from previous discussions, the “cover” (from the once used word lowt) “cast over” (from the three times used word luwt) all people, which the LORD removes, refer us to the other two times luwt appears.

In the first, 1 Samuel 22:9, it’s the “wrapping” David removes from the sword he took from Goliath, with which he cut off his head. The sword is then, in the following verses, revealed to be deception, which causes David’s enemies to disregard him.

1 Samuel 21
9 And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you slew in the valley of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped [luwt] in a cloth behind the ephod: if you will take that, take it: for there is no other save that here. And David said, There is none like that; give it me.
10 And David arose and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath.
11 And the servants of Achish said unto him, Is not this David the king of the land? did they not sing one to another of him in dances, saying, Saul has slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands?
12 And David laid up these words in his heart, and was sore afraid of Achish [“I will blacken” hide myself in there ignorance, so they think I AM “only a man”] the king of Gath [“winepress,” as I come as judgment].
13 And he changed his behavior before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard.
14 Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, you see the man is mad: wherefore then have you brought him to me?
15 Have I need of mad men, that you have brought this fellow to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house?

The other use (of luwt) comes in 1 Kings 19:13, when Elijah (Jehovah is God) “wrapped” his face (paniym – presence) in his mantle (covering God’s glory in him), which (mantle) he later cast upon Elisha (God is Salvation).

Jeremiah 50
24 I have laid a snare for you, and you are also taken, O Babylon, and you were not aware: you are found, and also caught, because you have strived against the LORD.
25 The LORD has opened his armory, and has brought forth the weapons of his indignation [za’am]: for this is the work of the LORD God of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans [against those who’ve used their words to manipulate humanity into hell].
26 Come against her from the utmost border [qets – this full end], open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left.
27 Slay all her bullocks [those doing this work of misleading into hell]; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation [pquddah – now, when I Am here as the Chief Overseer of the earth].
28 The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to [open their mouth and] declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple.
29 Call together the archers against Babylon: all you that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she has done, do unto her: for she has been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One of Israel.
30 Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, says the LORD.
31 Behold, I am against you, O you most proud, says the LORD God of hosts: for your day is come, the time that I will visit you.
32 And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
33 Thus says the LORD of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go.
34 Their Redeemer is strong; the LORD of hosts [a man of war] is his name [My identity]: he shall thoroughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the land, and disquiet [raqaz – pour His anger upon] the inhabitants of Babylon.
35 A sword [of David] is upon the Chaldeans, says the LORD, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men.
36 A sword is upon the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.
37 A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.
38 A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad [become insane] upon their idols.
39 Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited forever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.
40 As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbor cities thereof, says the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein.
41 Behold, a people shall come from the north [shall come out of ignorance], and a great [new] nation, and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts [the end of the old and corrupt, where their proud waves are stayed, beginning the new] of the earth.
42 They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel, and will not show mercy: their voice shall roar like the sea, and they shall ride upon horses, everyone put in array, like a man to the battle, [as My awakened army] against you, O daughter of Babylon.
43 The king of Babylon has heard the report [shama’ shema’ – understood and obeyed – acted knowing the time is of his end] of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish [tsarah – tribulation he caused] took hold [epithesis] of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail [fearing what they have brought forth].
44 Behold, he [the LORD, I Am] shall come up like a lion from [roaring against] the swelling [proud waves] of Jordan [words that carried all in the descent into death] unto the habitation of the strong [in power]: but I will make them [the wicked] suddenly run away from her [My people they have oppressed]: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint [paqad – who I will make Chief Overseer] over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me? [All these are references to Michael, who is like God and stands for God’s people in this time of Jacob’s trouble {tsarah}, and Shiloh, who comes as the shepherd and stone of God’s people – the king of peace, and king of righteousness, in the order of Melchizedek]
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: Surely the least of the flock [{as in Ahasuerus} “I will be silent and poor {without earthly power}”] shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitation desolate with them.
46 At the noise [qowl – the LORD’s voice] of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations.

Matthew 7 [from the previous post]
13 Enter you in [into His presence] at the strait [stenos – avoiding the obstacles that attempt to block the] gate: for wide [platus – only used here, the same as plasso and plastos, meaning fabricated, fictitious, falsely formed] is the gate, and broad [euruchoros {eu-rhume-chora} – only used here, meaning crowding good into emptiness: making it without form] is the way, that leads [apago] to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait [stenos – wrought with these obstacles] is the gate, and narrow [thlibo – crowded with those who put their opinions in the place of truth] is the way, which leads [apago] unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets [speaking in the LORD’s name, or in the name of some other god they put in His place], which come to you in sheep’s clothing [disguised as a friend or neighbor, saying they are at peace with you, while they war against us, out better culture, and our nation], but inwardly they are ravening wolves [who will turn on you, and as the swine mentioned above, rend you: scattering you from the LORD and His ONE BODY, which only a chosen few find].
16 You shall know them by their fruits [karpos – the foundations of their mind revealed in their conversation]. Do men gather grapes of thorns [misleaders], or figs of thistles [deceivers]?
17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit [karpos]; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit [karpos].
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit [karpos], neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit [karpos].
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit [karpos] is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits [karpos] you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven [bringing forth the good fruit He has given us and commanded us to give it as received].
22 Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you [I was never, and I Am not now, joined with you in your own evil works against me and My flock]: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a Rock [the sons from whom the Father’s word flows]:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand [ammos – a-momos, only used five times, meaning they are those claiming they are flawless: infallible, as do the many religious of our time, saying they are without a beam in their eye]:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes [the know-it-alls].

Isaiah 42
1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; my elect [bachiyr – b’ah charar, enter by fire, the trial therein], in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed shall he not break [those, as Gideon’s three hundred, chosen at this water’s edge], and the smoking flax shall he not quench [but shall bring them to a bright flame again]: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth [‘emeth – this victory over death and hell].
4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles [the dry places of the earth, where they have been without this word] shall wait for his law.
5 Thus says God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out [in this exposition]; he that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it; he that gives breath [life by this light] unto the people upon it, and [His] spirit to them that walk therein:
6 I the LORD have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you, and give you for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles [understanding to those who haven’t known Me];
7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness [the ignorant] out of the prison house.
8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, you that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar [darkness] does inhabit: let the inhabitants of the Rock [from where this word flows] sing [repeat the words you’ve heard], let them shout from the top of the mountains [the LORD’s government].
12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands [the dry place where His word isn’t heard].
13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman [and bring forth the children the LORD has given me]; I will destroy and devour at once.
15 I will make waste mountains and hills [the corrupt government of church and state], and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the [their] rivers islands, and I will dry up the [their] pools.
16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light [will reveal to them these things they haven’t known because they’ve been hidden in the ignorance men created and taught] before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images [men created and put in My place], that say to the molten images [they formed], You are our gods.
18 Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.
19 Who is blind, but my servant [not seeing anything that the corrupt world sees]? or deaf [not hearing the corrupt words of men who’ve destroyed all truth], as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’s servant?
20 Seeing many things, but you observe not [the idols of men]; opening the ears, but he hears not [the things of men].
21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable.
22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore [shuwb – return the understanding you have taken away].
23 Who among you will give ear to this [and hear the voice of the LORD]? who will hearken and hear [shama’ – and obey] for the time to come [‘achown – now in these last days of darkness]?
24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned [chata’ – to miss {his presence}]? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.
25 Therefore he has poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it has set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart [because they missed Him, not knowing Him or His manner].

Isaiah 43
1 But now thus says the LORD that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are mine.
2 When you pass [‘abar – from death into life] through the waters, I will be with you [as one that swims]; and through the rivers [in which flows the waters of death], they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.
3 For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior: I gave Egypt [your oppressor who are overflowed by My word, the sword they refuse] for your ransom, Ethiopia [those covered in their own darkness] and Seba [who I have made you drink of their own poisonous cup] for you.
4 Since you were precious in my sight, you have been honorable, and I have loved you: therefore will I give men for you, and people for your life.
5 Fear not: for I am with you: I will bring your seed from the east, and gather you from the west;
6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth [the end of the old and corrupt and beginning the new, wherein dwells righteousness];
7 Even every one that is called by my name [in whom My identity is declared and manifested]: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
9 Let all the nations [who haven’t know me] be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth [‘emeth – My victory over death and gates of hell].
10 You are my witnesses, says the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen [bachar – who have entered My presence in this trial by fire]: that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior.
12 I have declared [My presence in the flesh of My chosen], and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange god among you: therefore you are my witnesses, says the LORD, that I am God.
13 Yea, before the day was I Am he; and there is none that can deliver [natsal – the Hebrew equivalent harpazo {“caught up”}] out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it [shuwb – after My work, who shall, from My hand {work}, return to corruption]? [John 10: 26 But you believe not, because you are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck {harpazo} them out of my hand {work}. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck {harpazo} them out of my Father’s hand {work}. 30 I and my Father are one.]
14 Thus says the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon [this time when the earth is ruled by confusion and insanity], and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans [those who’ve used their untrue word to manipulate and control the world into death and hell], whose cry [words] is in the ships [the institutions of church and state they control].
15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.
16 Thus says the LORD, which makes a way in the sea [for humanity at large], and a path in the mighty waters [these words that are light and life];
17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power [as the army of Egypt]; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow [as smoking flax extinguished, so none any longer look to them for light].
18 Remember you not the former things, neither consider the things of old [the corrupted heaven and earth that are ending].
19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers [these springs of life-giving water] in the desert.
20 The beast [who were lifeless flesh without My Spirit] of the field shall honor me, the dragons [tan – men who before were as whales and serpents devouring men and swallowing them into the belly of hell] and the owls [who before hunted souls in the darkness]: because I give [these life giving] waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen [bachiyr – those who’ve entered My presence in this trial by fire].
21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall show forth my praise.
22 But you have not called upon me, O Jacob; but you have been weary of me, O Israel.
23 You have not brought me the small cattle of your burnt offerings; neither have you honored me with your sacrifices. I have not caused you to serve with an offering, nor wearied you with incense.
24 You have bought me no sweet cane with money, neither have you filled me with the fat of your sacrifices: but you have made me to serve with your sins, you have wearied me with your iniquities. [When is it enough?]
25 I, even I, am he that blots out your transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember your sins.
26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare you, that you mayest be justified.
27 Your first father has sinned, and your teachers have transgressed against me.
28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

Isaiah 44
1 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen [bachar – to enter My presence in the trial by fire]:
2 Thus says the LORD that made you, and formed you from the womb, which will help you; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and you, Jesurun [who shall prosper under Me], whom I have chosen [bachar].
3 For I will pour [these rightly divided] water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon your seed, and my blessing upon your offspring:
4 And they shall spring up as among the grass [on this third day of my new creation], as willows by the water courses.
5 One shall say, I am the LORD’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname [kanah] himself by the name of Israel.
6 Thus says the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; 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.

Matthew 12
14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.
15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
16 And charged them that they should not make him known:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles.
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he sends forth judgment unto victory [nikos – truth].
21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spoke and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
24 But when the Pharisees [the religious dividers, who’ve scattered God’s people] heard it, they said, This fellow does not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

Friends, the prominent and powerful, the wise of this world, whose mouths are always open, wizards of our time, by their muttering and peeping, show themselves without light, not knowing the time or the present LORD, continually bark into the darkness and not according to this word.

Isaiah 8
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 [the known dead], and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? [but instead, they continue looking] for the living to the dead?
20 [Shouldn’t they be looking] To the [this] law and to the [this] testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light [understanding] in them.
21 And they shall pass through it [‘abar – and {according to this word they could} passover from death into life], hardly bestead [but instead they became stiff necked] and hungry [and refused this word of God]: and it shall come to pass [hayah – and they became], that when they shall be hungry [refusing this word], they shall fret themselves [the word became wrath upon them], and curse their king and their God [who they don’t know and who they reject], and [not knowing His presence among them, they] look upward.
22 And they shall look unto the [corrupt powers of] earth; and behold trouble [tsarah – tribulation] and darkness [ignorance], dimness of anguish [they are covered by the shadow of these obstacles]; and they shall be driven to darkness [into insanity].

Isaiah 9
1 Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward [this refers to when Jehu gathered all those in Samaria worshiping Baal in the LORD’s place and destroyed them] did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan [after the teaching of false gods, the peeping and muttering wizards, carried all into spiritual death], in Galilee of the nations [and none knew the LORD or heard and understood His word].
2 The people that walked in darkness [in this ignorance] have seen a great light [are given understanding according to this word]: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined [this law and testimony].
3 You [LORD] have multiplied the nation [grew the population while they were ignorant of you], and not increased the joy [and none realize Your presence among them]: they joy before you according to the joy in harvest [receiving this word you have gathered and given to them, and they still don’t accept it as Your presence manifested], and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4 For you have broken the yoke of his burden [the corruption of those they were joined with and followed into darkness], and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor [the tyrants in power], as in the day of Midian [calling Your people to join You in this battle against those causing constant agitation and removing peace].
5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire [this word from the mouth of the LORD].
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his [now perfected] government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts [I Am, a man of war] will perform this.
8 The LORD sent a word into Jacob, and it has lighted upon [those who surname themselves as] Israel.
9 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim [all God’s people in this generation] and the inhabitant of Samaria [who are in ignorance worshipping idols men created and put in the LORD’s place], that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,
10 The bricks are fallen down, but we [the destroyers in power who led the world into this fall] will build with hewn stones [with the same hands make new creations – “build back better”]: the sycamores are cut down [the so-called upright among them, who aren’t], but we will change them into cedars [rename them something they aren’t, destroyers calling themselves builders].
11 Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin [who will be firmly] against him [against the globalist communists here in power], and join his enemies [Russia & China] together [as it is this day];
12 The Syrians [the foreign enemies] before, and the Philistines [the invading enemy army mixed among us] behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his [the LORD’s] anger [against the communists in power oppressing His people] is not turned away, but his hand [His work to save those who receive it] is stretched out still [in peace and friendship].
13 For the people turn not unto him [the communists in power] that smite them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.
14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15 The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the [false] prophet[s] that teaches lies, he is the tail.
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
17 Therefore the LORD shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one [following them into destruction, while refusing the LORD‘s offer of rescue] is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly [peeping and muttering as their teachers taught them]. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand [his word and work] is stretched out still.
18 For wickedness burns as the fire: it shall devour the briers [deceivers] and thorns [misleaders], and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest [among the falsely so-called upright], and they [these men as they are burning up] shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke [and in which none can see the way].
19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.
20 And he shall snatch [be divided] on the right hand, and be hungry [still refusing to hear and obey this word]; and he shall eat [the words of deceivers] on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied [never say it is enough – see Provers 30 below]: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm [not knowing they are all one body]:
21 Manasseh [this generation that has forgotten the LORD], Ephraim [God’s people still worshipping idols and the lies they’ve taught]; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah [the every small elect remnant]. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still [offering peace, which He doesn’t hold back from any who will receive Him].

Proverbs 30
11 There is a generation [now upon the earth] that curses their father [rejecting His knowledge and understanding], and does not bless their mother [their teacher who teaches them wisdom].
12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness [corruption that defiles their minds and scatters the ONE BODY].
13 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth [with the words of their mouth], and the needy from among men.
15 The horse-leach [that attach themselves to the mouths of those who drink from their waters, draining their life from them and those who follow them] has two daughters, crying, Give, give [calling themselves teachers, evangelists, and experts, all while asking for money from those they give their evil advice]. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough [are never satisfied – ever learning and never able to reach understanding the truth]:
16 The grave [sheol – hell]; and the barren womb [those in hell who never obey and never bring any to life]; the earth that is not filled with water [this word of God, which the dead who call themselves His people refuse to give as He commands]; and the fire that says not [even while they are being consumed by it], It is enough [they are never satisfied, ever learning, in the experience, but never able to come to the understating of this truth].
17 The eye that mocks at his father, and despises to obey [yiqqahah] his mother, the ravens of the valley [those covered in darkness, the shadows of the mountains {those in high places misleading them}, of the earth] shall pick it out [their eyes, blinding them with learned ignorance], and the young eagles shall eat it [‘akal – as they fly in heaven, with the LORD and His full understanding, consuming the darkness with the fire from their mouths].
18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
19 The way of an eagle in the air [the strong here in heaven with the LORD, relentlessly doing His work as He commanded]; the way of a serpent upon a rock [the deceivers in the false church, in whom God’s dead people put their trust]; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea [the institutions of church and state government, ruling over the people who under them are held in its darkened deep]; and the way of a man [geber – the LORD who is {alive in} a mighty man of war] with a maid [‘almah – the seven times used word, which last appears in Isaiah 7:14, saying “Therefore the LORD himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin {‘almah} shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”].
20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman [the unfaithful church that has left the LORD and now follows men who put themselves in His place]; she eats [corruption], and wipe her mouth, and says, I have done no wickedness.
21 For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear:
22 For a servant when he reigns [without the LORD’s anointing]; and a fool when he is filled with meat [thinking he is wise and has understanding, because of his success using his dark decrees by which he misleads];
23 For an odious woman when she is married [the corrupt church joined with devils, those confederate with the communists now in power]; and a handmaid [the ONE BODY of Christ, now in hard bondage under the corrupt and false] that is heir to her mistress [the corrupt church she will replace when she receives and obeys Her LORD].
24 There be four things which are little [in value] upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat [lechem – bread] in the summer [so they have plenty when the time of need comes];
26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks [a good foundation upon which they stand];
27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands [all-consuming in their season];
28 The spider takes hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces [yet my people refuse to take hold of these ideas and enter Mine].
29 There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:
30 A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turns not away for any [relentlessly going forward];
31 A greyhound [zarziyr – this is a cheetah, quickest to the prey]; a he goat also [who knows His place is at the head of the flock, to lead it into good pasture]; and a king [in which the LORD lives and reigns], against whom there is no rising up.
32 If you have done foolishly in lifting up yourself [against Him], or if you have thought evil [and led against Him], lay your hand upon your mouth.
33 Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter [working in these foundational ideas causes their elements to congeal into understanding], and the wringing of the nose [wrestling against the LORD’s presence you should by now perceive] brings forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.

Revelation 19
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the LORD our God:
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you his servants, and you that fear him, both small and great.
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia [Praise Yahh]: for the LORD God omnipotent reigns [His government is perfected in praising Him – Halel Yahh, to whom it appertains – Matthew 21:16 And said unto him, Hear you what these say {“Save now son of David”}? And Jesus says unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have perfected praise? See Psalms 8:2 below].
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he says unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb [become His ONE flesh BODY]. And he says unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me [as I am saying to you], See you do it not: I am your fellow-servant, and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God [which only He knows, and is alive in me doing His work revealing Himself in His word].
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean [purified from all corruption].
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven [by the strength of His full understanding], Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That you may [swallowing death in victory] eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast [the confusion that rules the world, deluding all institutions of church and state], and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet[s] that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark [of confusion in their head and hand, in their ideas and works, the fruits {karpos – heart-light} by which they are known] of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh [swallowing up death in victory].

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

Psalms 8
A Psalms of David
1 O LORD, our LORD, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who have set your glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still [shabath – stop the work of] the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars [governments of state and church], which you have ordained [to rule with truth and justice, to secure the rights your given man, as you rule];
4 What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit him [paqad – make your presence known in me, as the Chief Overseer of the earth, to reset the right foundations of the earth]?
5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels [chacer ‘elohiym – as planned, lacking the full understanding which only God possesses], and have [by giving me, and all who through me receive it from Him, this understanding] crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea [all the beasts of the earth, including men, all without the LORD’s Spirit], and whatsoever passes through [‘abar – all that Passover into life in this resurrection from death] the paths [‘orach – as pilgrims traveling] of the seas [through the ages and generations].
9 O LORD [Jehovah] our LORD [‘adown – our King], how excellent is your name [identity – seeing Your presence] in all the earth!

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.

12 – 13 May 2024

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.

As we’ve seen in many previous posts, but not recently discussed, the words rendered “strait” and “narrow,” speaking of the gate into life (out of death and hell), are stenos, used three times, meaning “narrow (from obstacles standing close about);” and thlibo, a ten times used word, meaning “to crowd (literally or figuratively).” It is from this latter word comes thlipsis, meaning “pressure (literally or figuratively):– afflicted(-tion), anguish, burdened, persecution, tribulation, trouble.”

These words speak of men as obstacles that must avoided and navigated, crowding the way (misleading those trying to enter, holding them with their mouths as the gates of hell).
The deeper aspect of the verse is in the word apago (compounded from the same components that make the word agape), which tells us these obstacles are blocking (katecho – withholding, letting) the way that “leads” (by agape) into life.

As we understand, the deep meaning in such passages shines bright in the seemingly disconnected words and statements accompanying them. In the above case, Matthew 7:14, the LORD is referring to the evil (the misleading of the straiteners and the narrowers) spoken by others (putting themselves in the LORD’s place as Provider), and the good gifts the Father is giving through Him (as here and now by His good shepherd). It is of this matter and pointing out the perpetrator (withholding and letting His people throughout time) the LORD speaks in the below portion of the chapter (those doing so in His name when He never knew them: was never joined with them as they went their own way).

Matthew 7
1 Judge not [with corrupt judgment, not seeing as the LORD sees], that you be not judged [with the same corrupt judgment].
2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete [give my good judgment, seeing as I see], it shall be measured to you again [this is specifically referenced in verse 12 below].
3 And why behold you the mote that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam [dokos, only used six times, all speaking on this same point: the corrupt judgment pervading our time; the word speaks of the balance beam of equal justice {dikaos} that comes with right thinking {dokeo}] that is in your own eye?
4 Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote [karphos – heart shining, the foundational understanding revealed in conversation; as is karpos: “fruit”] out of your eye [corrupting your judgment]; and, behold, a beam [dokos – the greater corruption of those who think they know, when their point of balance is off center, and they’ve become obstacles] is in your own eye?
5 You hypocrite, first cast out the beam [dokos] out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote [karphos] out of your brother’s eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs [those who are forever ignorantly barking in the darkness], neither cast you your pearls [the entryway found in these treasures, as in Revelation 21:21 speaking of the twelve gates into the city of God: holy Jerusalem that comes down from Him out of heaven] before swine [the unclean flesh of those who’ve become obstacles], lest they trample them under their feet [doing violence to these words, with their opinions they present as fact, defiling it as they’ve done to all truthful discourse], and turn again and rend [rhegma] you [scatter you again away from the LORD and His ONE BODY].
7 Ask [the Father], and it shall be given you; [diligently] seek [Him], and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you [by Him]:
8 For every one that asks [Him] receives; and he that seeks [Him] finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened [by Him]. [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.]
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets [from where comes these treasures from the present Father who gives them to be given].
13 Enter you in [into His presence] at the strait [stenos – avoiding the obstacles that attempt to block the] gate: for wide [platus – only used here, the same as plasso and plastos, meaning fabricated, fictitious, falsely formed] is the gate, and broad [euruchoros {eu-rhume-chora} – only used here, meaning crowding good into emptiness: making it without form] is the way, that leads [apago] to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait [stenos – wrought with these obstacles] is the gate, and narrow [thlibo – crowded with those who put their opinions in the place of truth] is the way, which leads [apago] unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets [speaking in the LORD’s name, or in the name of some other god they put in His place], which come to you in sheep’s clothing [disguised as a friend or neighbor, saying they are at peace with you, while they war against us, out better culture, and our nation], but inwardly they are ravening wolves [who will turn on you, and as the swine mentioned above, rend you: scattering you from the LORD and His ONE BODY, which only a chosen few find].
16 You shall know them by their fruits [karpos – the foundations of their mind revealed in their conversation]. Do men gather grapes of thorns [misleaders], or figs of thistles [deceivers]?
17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit [karpos]; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit [karpos].
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit [karpos], neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit [karpos].
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit [karpos] is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits [karpos] you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven [bringing forth the good fruit He has given us and commanded to give as received].
22 Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you [I was never, and I Am not now, joined with you in your own evil works against me and My flock]: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a Rock [the sons from whom the Father’s word flows]:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand [ammos – a-momos, only used five times, meaning they are those claiming they are flawless: infallible, as do the many religious of our time, saying they are without a beam in their eye]:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes [the know-it-alls].

Romans 9
18 Therefore has he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardens [skleruno, from skleros, the hard speeches of these ungodly men].
19 You will say then unto me, Why does he yet find fault? For who has resisted his will?
20 Nay but, O man, who are you that replies against God [with your own hard speeches against Him and His salvation plan, while refusing to speak His words as commanded]? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus?
21 Has not the potter power over the clay [as the LORD has power over the earth], of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?
22 What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power [over the earth] known, endured with much longsuffering [not willing that any should perish but that all would come to repentance] the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels [who receive] of mercy, which he had afore prepared [for their mouths to be opened, showing the same mercy] unto glory,
24 Even us, whom he has called [kaleo – and sent], not of the Jews [those who call themselves His people] only, but also of the Gentiles [those who haven’t known Him]?
25 As he says also in Hosea [2:23], I will call [kaleo] them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.
26 And [written in Hosea 1:10] it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, You are not my people; there shall they be called [kaleo – with correction, to become] the children of the living God.
27 Isaiah [in Isaiah 10:22 & 23] also cries concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand [ammos] of the sea, a remnant shall be [corrected and thereby] saved:
28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the LORD make upon the earth.
29 And as Isaiah [in Isaiah 1:9] said before, Except the LORD of Sabaoth [a man of war] had left us a seed [which He’s sown into the earth], we had been as Sodom [consumed in the flames of our time], and been made like unto Gomorrah [left an uninhabitable ruin].
30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles [who haven’t know the LORD], which followed not after righteousness [that is by keeping the now totally corrupted law: the doctrine of the apostate churches], have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith [by obeying the voice of the LORD, when they hear it as His, spoken by His elect remnant who first heard Him].
31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness.
32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works [touch not and taste not natural things, while they consumed deadly, corrupted, spiritual things] of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling-Stone [sent for their correction];
33 As it is written [in Isaiah 28:16], Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling-Stone and Rock of offence: and whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.

Hosea 1
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, You are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, You are [by His correction] the sons of the living God.
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together [into the LORD’s ONE BODY], and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land [‘erets – rise from the corrupt earth]: for great shall be the day of Jezreel [when I sow them into the earth].

Hosea 2
14 Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.
15 And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor [where they were in a constant state of agitation] for a door of hope: and she shall sing there [repeating these words of understanding I have given her], as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land [‘erets – arose from the earth] of Egypt.
16 And it shall be at that day, says the LORD, that you shall call me Ishi [man – a man of war]; and shall call me no more Baali [no longer calling your idols by My name]
17 For I will take away the names of Baalim [the words taught by your idols] out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.
18 And in that day will I make a covenant [writing My words, the only way to peace and safety, into their minds] for them with the beasts of the field [who have been without My Spirit] and with the fowls of heaven [those in the places where understanding should be found], and with the creeping things of the ground [all that walk the earth]: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle [against Me] out of the earth [‘erets], and will make them to lie down safely.
19 And I will betroth you unto me forever; yea, I will betroth you unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.
20 I will even betroth you unto me in faithfulness: and you shall know the LORD.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, says the LORD, I will hear the heavens [your understanding from your mouths], and they shall hear [be heard in] the earth [‘erets];
22 And the earth [‘erets] shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil [these words that nourish the mind]; and they shall hear Jezreel [My people I have sown into the earth].
23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth [‘erets]; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, You are my people; and they shall say, You are my God.

Isaiah 1
4 Ah sinful nation [who haven’t known Me], a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
5 Why should you [by your own ways] be stricken any more? you will revolt more and more: the whole head [all leadership] is sick, and the whole heart [mind] faint.
6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.
7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers [this is the True State of the Union].
8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers [alone among vines that have overgrown all else], as a besieged city.
9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom [consumed by flames], and we should have been like unto Gomorrah [left as an uninhabitable ruin].
10 Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.
11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
12 When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
13 Bring no more vain [worthless] oblations; incense is an abomination unto me [worshipping idols men created and put in My place]; the new moons [the corrupt governments you’ve created and put in the place of justice and security] and sabbaths [your interruptions and correction away from good and into evil], the calling of assemblies [to hear broadcasted the foolishness of buffoons], I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
15 And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of [innocent] blood.
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow [those who have no man to protect them from the attacks of the wicked].
18 Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If you be willing and obedient [shama’], you shall eat the good of the land [‘erets – the earth]:
20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.
21 How is the faithful city become a harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
22 Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water:
23 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come unto them [for protection against the wicked].
24 Therefore says the LORD, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies:
25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and purely purge away your dross, and take away all your tin:
26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

Isaiah 28
16 Therefore thus says the LORD GOD [‘Adonay Jehovih – KING of kings and LORD of lords], Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death [maveth] shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell [sheol] shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [shmuw’ah – the sound doctrine, teaching, and the rumor of Ezekiel 7:26, which is the voice of Jehovah heard].
20 For the bed is shorter than that a [sleeping] man can stretch himself on it: and the covering [the lies and falsehoods under which they hide is] narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
21 For the LORD [Jehovah] shall rise up as in mount Perazim [2 Samuel 5:20 – as water from His throne, breaking forth upon His and David’s enemies], he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon [Joshua 10:10 & 11 – His word reserved {frozen} in heaven, sent as great hailstones upon the wicked: the current corrupt crop sitting in power], that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange [known to no one except Him] act.
22 Now therefore be you not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the LORD GOD [‘Adonay Jehovih – KING of kings and LORD of lords], of hosts [a man of war and Commander, Chief, of the armies of heaven] a consumption [kalah – a full end, as in Daniel 9:27], even determined [charats – decreed, as in Joshua 10:21 saying “And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua {Jesus} at Makkedah {as one flock under one shepherd} in peace: none moved {charats} his tongue against any of the children of Israel.” And 2 Samiel 5:24, the LORD saying to David, “And let it be, when you hear {shama’ – obey} the sound {qowl – the voice} of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees {baka’, from which come bkowr – telling us this is the voice of the “firstborn”}, that then you shall bestir yourself: for then shall the LORD go out before {paniym – His presence will be manifested with, in} you, to smite the host of the Philistines {the enemy army now mixed among you}.”] upon the whole earth [‘erets].
23 Give you ear, and hear [shama’ – and obey] my voice [qowl]; hearken, and hear [shama’ – and obey] my speech.

As we know, the scourge mentioned above is from the eleven times used word showt, which only appears one other time in Isaiah, in Isaiah 10:26, telling us it’s the end of the LORD’s indignation, in the destruction of the wicked. It’s when, against Midian, all God’s people are called to destroy this existential threat.

Isaiah 10
21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
22 For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption [killayown – only here and Deuteronomy 28:65 where it is a “falling” eye, as in what these men say they’ve seen, as in Zachariah 14:12] decreed [charats] shall overflow with righteousness.
23 For the LORD God of hosts shall make a consumption [kalah – a full end], even determined [charats], in the midst of all the land [‘erets – the earth].
24 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, O my people that dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian [communists in power]: he shall smite you with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt [as tyrants oppressing all God’s people].
25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation [za’am] shall cease, and my anger in their destruction.
26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge [showt] for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb [those who trust in their cover of darkness – against who the LORD calls His people as light, mustering them to the battle and final destruction of these enemies among us]: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt [and the sea, God’s people at large, will come together again and overthrow them].
27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing [of the King].

Hebrews 3
7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost says, Today if you will hear [obey] his voice,
8 Harden [skleruno] not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness [when you doubted the LORD’s presence]:
9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do always err in their heart [darkened minds]; and they have not known my ways.
11 So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart [misled mind] of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened [skleruno] through the deceitfulness of sin.
14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end [in His presence, raising Himself in you];
15 While it is said, Today if you will hear his voice [here Him speaking], harden [skleruno] not your hearts, as in the provocation.
16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?
18 And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
19 So we see that they could not enter in [into His presence] because of unbelief [not hearing or obeying His voice].

Psalms 4
1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: you have enlarged me [opening and entering my mind] 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 [worthlessness], and seek after leasing [kazab – falsehood]? Selah.
3 But know that the LORD has set apart [palah] him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart [consider your thoughts and know they are vain] upon your bed [where you sleep], and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, 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 [understanding] of your countenance [paniym – Your presence] upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart [in my mind], more 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.

Psalms 17
1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goes not out of feigned [deceitful] lips.
2 Let my sentence [mishpat – my judgment] come forth from your presence [paniym]; let your eyes behold [chazah – let me discern by seeing with Your sight] the things that are equal.
3 You have proved my heart; you have visited me [paqad – come as the Chief Overseer of the earth] in the night [this time when ignorance covers the earth and no man knows You]; you have tried me, and shall find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
5 Hold up my goings in your paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon you, for you will hear me, O God: incline your ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7 Show your marvelous lovingkindness, O you that saves by your right hand them which put their trust in you from those that rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of your wings,
9 From [paniym – By Your presence, save us from] the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10 They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouths they speak proudly.
11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to [corrupt] the earth;
12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint [paniym – by Your presence against] him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is your sword:
14 From men which are your hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly you fill with your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15 As for me, I will behold [chazah – perceive] your face [paniym – presence] in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with your likeness.

The “destroyer” mentioned above in verse 4 is the six times used word priyts, meaning “violent, i.e. a tyrant:–destroyer, ravenous, robber.” All the other five of its uses are in the passages below, in which the present LORD speaks to us of our time and His will.

The first of these comes in Isaiah 35:9, which follows chapter 34, wherein verse 11, the LORD speaks of the condition of the earth in like terms as in Genesis 1:2. In the former, it is “without form [tohuw], and void [bohuw], and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.”

In Isaiah 34:8, “it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, and the year of recompense for the controversy of Zion.” We know this controversy is about who is better suited to rule the earth, the LORD God who created it and will create it again anew, or the men who have brought it to its current state of “confusion” (tohuw) and “emptiness” (bohuw).

This state is mentioned in Isaiah 34:11, one of the three places the word bohuw appears, always with tohuw. In the other place, Jeremiah 4:23, it’s rendered the same as Genesis 1:2, also speaking of the condition of the earth.

Jeremiah 4
1 If you will return, O Israel, says the LORD, return unto me: and if you will put away your abominations out of my sight [paniym – from My presence], then shall you not remove.
2 And you shall swear, The LORD lives, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.
3 For thus says the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns [the misleader who overgrew My garden neglected by those in whose care I left it].
4 Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart [your minds], you men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of [paniym – which is My presence against] the evil of your doings.
5 Declare you in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow you the trumpet in the land [‘erets – the earth]: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defensed cities.
6 Set up the standard [nec – the pole upon which the son of man must be lifted] toward Zion: retire [‘uwz – save yourselves by coming out from among those misleading you], stay not [‘amad – stand not with them]: for I will bring evil from the north [this time of darkness when the existential threat is a man’s our ignorance], and a great destruction [sheber].

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 [qowl – voice] of the trumpet [the voice of the LORD’s archangel, I Am], the alarm of war.
20 Destruction [sheber] upon destruction [sheber] is cried; for the whole land [’erets – the whole earth] is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.
21 How long shall I see the standard [nec – the son of man, I Am, lifted by the LORD’s presence manifested in My flesh], and hear the sound [qowl – the voice] of the trumpet?
22 For my people is foolish [‘eviyl – silly], they have not known me; they are sottish [cakal – silly] children [as silly women ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, because they refuse to put away childish things], and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil [speaking the misleading, the fabrications, of those they follow], but to do good they have no knowledge.
23 I beheld the earth [‘erets], and, lo, it was without form [tohuw – in a state of mass confusion], and void [bohuw – it was emptied of all sanity]; and the heavens [the places where understanding should be and from where it should be taught], and they had no light.
24 I beheld the mountains [the corrupt governments of church and state], and, lo, they trembled [ra’ash – to bring the dead bones together, and to make men consider how they’ve handled the word of God, and to it done violence], and all the hills moved lightly.
25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man [alive in these governments], and all the birds of heavens [raise there by the LORD strength, His understanding] were fled.
26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place [My garden – karmel Carmel] was a wilderness [midbar], and all the cities thereof were broken down [nathats] at the presence [paniym] of the LORD, and by [paniym – by His presence manifesting] His fierce anger.
27 For thus has the LORD said, The whole land [‘erets] shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end [kalah].
28 For this shall the earth [‘erets] mourn, and the heavens [the corrupt place where understanding should be found] above be black [in complete ignorance, as they are this day]; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

Isaiah 34
16 Seek you out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it has commanded, and his spirit it has gathered them.
17 And he has cast the lot for them, and his hand has divided it [their confusion and emptiness in the places of their corrupt governments] unto them by line: they shall possess it forever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein. [Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.]

Isaiah 35
1 The wilderness [midbar] and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon [purity seen again in high places] shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon [My garden again plainly seen], they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
3 Strengthen you the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness [midbar] shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of [living] water: in the habitation of dragons [tan – men as serpents and whales, with their wide open mouths devouring men and swallowing them into the belly of hell], where each lay [there stop their works], shall be grass with reeds and rushes [and their words, the cause of the beam in men’s eyes, shall wither, and there end].
8 And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it [‘abar – the corrupt shall not passover from death into life]; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men [who’ve traveled this highway with the LORD], though [before] fools [‘eviyl – silly and have not known Me], shall not err therein.
9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous [priyts] beast [tyrants without the LORD’s Spirit] shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs [this word of God they speak with Him] and everlasting joy [realizing His presence with us, in us] upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Jeremiah 7
3 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.
4 Trust you not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these [defiled places].
5 For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if you thoroughly execute [My good] judgment between a man and his neighbor;
6 If you oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place [as the wicked do this day, openly without shame, as terrorists hoping to cause terror], neither walk after other gods to your hurt [as do the wicked in their daily broadcasts, misleading, gaslighting, and worshiping those manipulating the world into their evil ways and ever darkening tribulation]:
7 Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land [‘erets – this earth] that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever.
8 Behold, you trust in lying words, that cannot profit.
9 Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal [the false gods of this insane world], and walk after other gods whom you know not;
10 And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations [you’ve put in My place]?
11 Is this house, which is called by my name [wherein My identity should be manifested], become a den of robbers [priyts] in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it [by My sight that isn’t defiled by your beam of corruption], says the LORD.

Friends, Paul, twice in his writing to the Thessalonians, about the tribulation and from whom it comes, reminds them of things he has told them before. The first is in 1 Thessalonians 3:4, after, in the previous chapter, he speaks to them as those who’ve received this word “from us” (him, and Timothy present with them, in whom the LORD’s presence is manifested, as He is this day with those who receive this word as His) as the word of God, as it is, and not of man, and says they are thereby “in the presence our LORD Jesus Christ at His coming.”
Chapter 3 continues from this declaration, saying it is for this cause he (the LORD in Him speaking) sent Timothy (I Am) to them: those of Thessalonike, who get the “victory over falsity:” over the fruit (karpos) of the false prophets and false teaching among them doing the work of Satan: the evil spirit possessing them.

In the second (reminder), in 2 Thessalonians 2:5, he speaks of the mystery of iniquity was already (as described above) at work, in men possessed by Satan, doing his work with all lying signs and worders, as they sit in the temple of God, which they defile with their abominations (while saying, “the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, are these”), and where they sit opposing Him in His place, showing themselves as if they are gods.

Acts 17
11 These were more noble [“well-born,” the religious in Berea: because they are now “well-watered”] than those [the religious, who think they are infallible, those Paul says are possessed by Satan, hindering the word of God and opposing His work] in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

1 Thessalonians 2
18 Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered [egkopto – by cutting into: scattering the elements of understanding] us.
19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even you in the presence of our LORD Jesus Christ at his coming?
20 For you are our glory and joy [when you realize you are in His presence].

1 Thessalonians 3
1 Wherefore when we could no longer forbear [stego – meaning they are staying hidden by their silence], we thought it good to be left at Athens [leaving uncertainty – to end your doubting the LORD’s presence in us] alone [separating you from the ONE BODY];
2 And sent Timothy, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellow-laborer in the gospel of Christ, to establish [sterizo – meaning “to set fast, i.e. (literally) to turn resolutely in a certain direction, or (figuratively) to confirm”] you, and to comfort [parakaleo – as the Paraclete, the LORD in me working and speaking unknown; to call you near to Himself, to join with Him in His ONE BODY] you concerning your faith [believing it is Him]:
3 That no man should be moved [from your faith in Him] by these afflictions [thilipsis]: for yourselves know that we are appointed [keimai – where the LORD’s dead body “lay” before He was risen from the dead, the city “set” on a hill that can no longer be hidden in silence] thereunto.
4 For truly, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation [thlibo – only rendered as such this once, the narrowing the LORD speaks of]; even as it [now] came to pass, and you know.
5 For this cause, when I could no longer forbear [stego – stay hidden in your silence], I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter [denying the LORD’s presence] have tempted you [and you continue in your silence, not declaring His presence], and our labor [to the end that we all come to life, and, awakened, rise with Him into His ONE BODY] be in vain.
6 But NOW when Timothy came from you unto us [was raised to life from the dead among you], and brought us [those waiting to be awakened with me] good tidings [declaring the LORD alive with us] of your faith [by which you believe He is] and charity [agape – will give the same word as received from Him], and that you have good remembrance [mneia – recollection, making mention of, as with Joseph when he was in prison] of us always [by which we again see the LORD’s living ONE BODY], desiring greatly to see us, as we also to see you:
7 Therefore, brethren, we were comforted [parakaleo – called near] over you in all our affliction [thilipsis] and distress by your faith:
8 For now we live, if you stand fast [steko] in the LORD.

Hebrews 11
39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

Hebrews 12
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses [in whom this understanding is held, reserved therein for the time of war, when your silence is ended and your mouths are opened], let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not you the chastening of the LORD, nor faint when you are rebuked of him:
6 For whom the LORD loves he chastens and scourges every son whom he receives.

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

2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together [into His ONE BODY] unto him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means [calling themselves infallible, saying have not fallen away from the LORD into apostacy]: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [apostasia – apostasy, led by Satan possessed men sitting in the LORD’s place and defiling it, His temple, the minds of men, with their abomination: doctrines men put in His place] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [in the pattern of Reuben, who put himself in his father’s place and defiled it];
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now you know what withholds [katecho – holds you down] that he [Satan possessing men] might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work [Satan already possessing men who were then like now hindering, resisting, the LORD’s work, the free course of His word from His chosen]: only he who now lets [katecho – hold you down] will let [hold you down, keeping all from rising with the LORD into His ONE heavenly BODY], until he be taken out of the way [mesos – from our midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth [this word heard and declares as His presence], and shall destroy with the brightness [giving understanding] of his coming:
9 Even him [the LORD Himself], whose coming is after the working of Satan [scattering the element of understanding] with all power [of deception] and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish [by following those who put themselves in the Father’s place]; because they received not the love of the truth [His presence manifested in His word], that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned [krino – be their decision to remain in darkness, to remain insane, never realizing reality] 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 [arche] chosen you to salvation through sanctification of [hagiasmos – purification by] the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called [kaleo] you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ [revealed in you].
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast [steko – upon the LORD’s word, the Rock by which we live], and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

John 1
1 In the beginning [arche] was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning [arche] with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light [phos – understanding] of men.
5 And the light [phos] shines in darkness [was gives into this time when ignorance covers the earth silencing His word]; and the darkness comprehended it not.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Ezekiel 7
20 As for the beauty of his [the LORD’s] ornament, he [the LORD] set it in majesty: but they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things therein [His place]: therefore have I [the LORD] set it far from them.
21 And I [the LORD] will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
22 My face [paniym – My presence] will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret [tsaphan] place [where these treasure of understanding are held]: for the robbers [priyts] shall enter into it, and defile it [as they have].
23 Make a chain [to bind these men in their own darkness]: for the land [‘erets – the earth] is full of bloody crimes, and the city [of peace] is full of violence.
24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they [those possessed by Satan] shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.
25 Destruction comes; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
26 Mischief [hovah, from havah] shall come upon mischief [hovah], and rumor [shmuw’ah, this voice of Jehovah heard] shall be upon rumor [shmuw’ah, His voice teaching, precept upon precept, line upon line] then shall they seek a vision of the [false] prophet[s]; but the law shall perish from the priest[s], and counsel from the ancients [all the robbers who’ve put themselves in My place]. [The word hovah, referring to the effects of the strong delusion the LORD has sent upon the insane, only appears one other time, in Isaiah 47:11, saying “Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shall not know from whence it rises: and mischief {hovah} shall fall upon you; you shall not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know {because you’ve been chained in your own ignorance}.”]
27 The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land [‘erets] shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts [mishpat – according to their corrupt judgment, by the precedent of their evil shall the evil judge them, and thereby] will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 18
5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
6 And has not eaten upon [corrupted and committed robbery by] the mountains [committed this violence by the governments of church and state], neither has lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither has defiled [with their corruption] his neighbor’s wife, neither has come near to a menstruous woman [the church defiled in the blood they’ve shed],
7 And has not oppressed any, but has restored to the debtor his pledge [the money they say we own in tithes and taxes, which went into their pockets], has spoiled none by violence, has given his bread [this word of truth] to the hungry, and has covered the naked with a garment [the LORD righteousness, His right, reality-based, thinking];
8 He that has not given forth upon usury [the money they steal by exorbitant interest rates], neither has taken any increase [stealing men’s wages and profits], that has withdrawn his hand from iniquity, has executed true judgment between man and man,
9 Has walked in my statutes, and has kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, says the LORD God.
10 If he begets a son that is a robber [priyts], a shedder of blood, and that does the like to any one of these things,
11 And that does not any of those duties [mentioned in verses 7 thru 9], but even has eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbor’s wife,
12 Has oppressed the poor [without worldly power] and needy, has spoiled by violence, has not restored the pledge, and has lifted up his eyes to the idols, has committed abominations [they put in the LORD’s place],
13 Has given forth upon usury, and has taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he has done all these abominations [by the power of government in church and state]; he shall surely die; his blood [the means by which he has shed innocent blood] shall be upon him.

Daniel 11
13 For the king of the north [the Democrats, the communists in power, and their army of darkness] shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches [the national treasury supporting their evil deeds].
14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south [the Republicans, or rather those who claim to be]: also the robbers [priyth] of your people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision [their vision of government, as they see it, with a different, kinder, gentler, form of oppression]; but they shall fall.
15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities [from where they steal elections by mass vote fraud they all know and condone]: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand [their power to deceive, known liars telling known lies, know false accusers with known false accusation, which the opposition party never oppose].
16 But he that comes against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.
17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength [understanding] of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.
32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be helped with a little help: but many [false preachers and false prophets] shall cleave to them [be in their midst] with flatteries.
35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end [qets]: because it is yet for a time appointed [mow’ed].

Psalms 39
1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spoke I with my tongue,
4 LORD, make me to know my end [qets], and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am.
5 Behold, you have made my days as a handbreadth; and my age is as nothing before you: truly every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
6 Surely every man walketh in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heaps up riches, and knows not who shall gather them.
7 And now, LORD, what wait I for? my hope is in you.
8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because you did it.
10 Remove your stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of your hand.
11 When you with rebukes do correct man for iniquity, you make his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not your peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with you, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

Psalms 74
1 O God, why have you cast us off forever? why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your pasture?
2 Remember your congregation [‘edah], which you have purchased of old; the rod of your inheritance, which you have redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein you have dwelt.
3 Lift up your feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy has done wickedly in the sanctuary.
4 Your enemies roar in the midst of your congregations [mow’ed – this appointed time]; they set up their [evil] ensigns for signs.
5 A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees [cutting down the upright].
6 But now they break down the carved work [even the idols they made and put in Your place] thereof at once with axes and hammers.
7 They have cast fire into your sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of your name [identity] to the ground.
8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues [mow’ed – at this appointed time] of God in the land [‘erets, in the earth].
9 We [because the false teachers destroyed our sight] see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knows how long.
10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme your name forever?
11 Why withdraw you your hand, even your right hand [of Your power]? pluck it out of your bosom.
12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 You did divide the sea by your strength: you broke the heads of the dragons in the waters [men, like serpents and whales, with their words devouring men and swallowing them into hell].
14 You broke the heads of leviathan in pieces [the rivers in which the wicked flow their poison into the sea: humanity at large], and gave him to be meat [gave an understanding of the depths of the depravity in their words] to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15 You did cleave the fountain and the flood: you dried up mighty rivers.
16 The day [when light has come] is yours, the night [the time when ignorance covers the earth] also is yours: you have prepared the light [understanding] and the sun [by which it comes as a new day].
17 You have set all the borders [the ends and beginnings of the ages] of the earth: you have made summer and winter.
18 Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed your name.
19 O deliver not the soul of your turtledove [dove – those who know this is the time of the end of darkness, and opening their mouths is the sign of it] unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation [chay – the living, man of the new creation] of your poor forever [those without worldly power].
20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places [the ignorant powers] of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise your name.
22 Arise, O God, plead your own cause: remember how the foolish man reproaches you daily.
23 Forget not the voice of your enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against you increase continually.

Psalms 28
1 Unto you will I cry, O LORD my Rock; be not silent to me: lest, if you be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto you, when I lift up my hands toward your holy oracle [exalting this word].
3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts.
4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavors: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
5 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
6 Blessed be the LORD, because he has heard the voice of my supplications.
7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore, my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song [repeating His words] will I praise him.
8 The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
9 Save your people, and bless your inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up forever.

Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

6 – 9 May 2024

Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

The above, Ezekiel 3:12, is Ezekiel speaking of the presence of the LORD he experienced, how He unfolded Himself to him, and then (recorded in the prior verse) told him to write and send what He saw to those of the captivity (here and now in Babylon). In the title verse, he sees this encompassing event as a wheel within a wheel: the word of God received as His word, giving him understanding wherein is light and the creation of life, which he then, in written form, sends forward to give the same understanding to those for whom the LORD predestined it.

Ezekiel 3
8 Behold, I have made your face strong against [‘ummah] their faces, and your forehead strong against [‘ummah] their foreheads [depicted in the cherubim face to face above the mercy seat, where My presence is manifested in the conversation].
9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto you receive in your heart [mind], and hear with your ears.
11 And go, get you to them of the captivity, unto the children of your people, and speak [with My voice] unto them, and tell them, Thus says the LORD God; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.

Suffer me once again while I must digress. Throughout history, and in our time, many have speculated, fanaticized, and fictitiously, in words and images, depicted their opinions, delusions they called reality, of Ezekiel’s wheel within a wheel. These acts of ignorance are works of men unable to fully comprehend the meaning in his (Ezekiel’s) exact description of the LORD manifesting His presence in a conversation that transcends time and joins dimensions (physical and metaphysical, words and thoughts uniting, as reality).

The Hebrew word in the title verse rendered “rushing” (which he tells us is a “voice:” qowl), is ra’ash, which we’ve seen is the word rendered “shaking” in Ezekiel 37:7, speaking of what brings the dead bones together.

This joining is depicted in the words of the original text of Ezekiel 3:13, saying “I heard also the noise [qowl – the voice] of the wings [giving the strength that raises us into heaven] of the living creatures [chay – creating life] that touched [nashaq – joining] one [‘ishshah – woman; the church] another [‘achowth – to her sisters], and the noise [qowl – voice] of the wheels [of this understanding sent] over against [as in Ezekiel 3:8 above, ‘ummah – sent alongside them: the LORD’s Spirit moving upon them as the Paraclete to] them, and a noise [qowl] of a great rushing [ra’ash – bringing the dead bones together].”

This form of the word ra’ash only appears two other times in Ezekiel; the first, in Ezekiel 12:18, as he is told to eat this word of God with “trembling,” meaning to take great care, use much discretion, in how it is divided, not to do it violence as so many others have, but shaking from it the wickedness they’ve added.

The other (use of ra’ash #7494) comes in Ezekiel 38:19, as the LORD speaks of this shaking in this generation of God’s new creation.

Ezekiel 12
17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
18 Son of man, eat your bread with quaking [ra’ash], and drink your water with trembling and with carefulness;
19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus says the LORD God of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.
20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
21 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
22 Son of man, what is that proverb that you have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision fails?
23 Tell them therefore, Thus says the LORD God; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.
24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.
25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, says the LORD God.
26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying.
27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he sees is for many days to come, and he prophesies of the times that are far off [rachowq – this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men in power].
28 Therefore say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, says the LORD God.

The word rendered “carefulness” in verses 18 & 19 above is d’agah, meaning “anxiety:–care(-fulness), fear, heaviness, sorrow.” In its one other use in Ezekiel, in Ezekiel 4:14, we are told why men should fear this, because those who don’t use the LORD’s word “with care” will “consume away,” from the word maqaq, which we know from its use three times in Zechariah 14:12.

It (d’agah) bears an unstated affinity to the word dag, dagah, and Dagown; which we know, respectively, as the “fish” that swallowed Jonah, in whose (“fish’s”) belly he was held, and the idol Dagon, all speaking of what (deception below the surface of the water) agitates the sea and cause the storms upon its waters. We also understand this “fish’s belly” is where and what Jonah called (in Jonah 2:2) the “belly of hell,” which the LORD said was the “belly of the earth,” where (among the dead) He said He would be held for three days and three nights until (from there He rises from among the dead) we see Him again and with Him rise.

By this understanding we realized the “care” and “carefulness,” with which we should eat bread and drink water, meaning what teaching and words we consume, which form our understanding, because if they are defiled (corrupted by men’s excrement), they are the belly of hell into which we’re swallowed and held until we again see the LORD and He frees us by His uncorrupted truth.

Ezekiel 4
7 Therefore you shall set your face [as an adamant harder than flint] toward the siege of Jerusalem [God’s people held in corruption], and your arm [My presence working in You] shall be uncovered, and you shall prophesy against it.
8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon you, and you shall not turn you from one side to another, till you have ended [kalah] the days of your siege.

13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread [the written word to which men have added pollution] among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.
14 Then said I, Ah LORD God! behold, my soul has not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dies of itself [the words of the dead that defile], or is torn in pieces [separating the elements of understanding]; neither came there abominable flesh [the idols men created, put in the LORD’s place, and call by His name] into my mouth.
15 Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given you cow’s dung for man’s dung, and you shall prepare your bread therewith [showing men’s teaching the LORD’s word is corrupted by excrement they have added].
16 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread [teaching by which men mislead My flock] in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care [d’agah]; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
17 That they may want [lack this uncorrupted] bread and water, and be astonished [shamem – stupefied, mentally desolate, not know] one [‘ish – a man] with another [‘ach – his brother, relating to Ezekiel 3:13], and consume [maqaq] away for their iniquity.

Ezekiel’s vision is of the presence of God manifested into our minds, unseen in His word, by which He interacts with our thoughts, reshapes our perception, by which we realize He is the metaphysical influence, His identity, as His words create physical reality from the aether (the unseen waves of these interactions).

From here, they (the above-stated means) carry us to the word aurion (the same as air, the unseen substance we unconsciously breathe to live), said to mean fresh air, used fifteen times, and rendered “morrow,” “tomorrow,” and “next day.”

Its (aurion’s) seemingly most innocuous uses come as LORD Jesus speaks (unknown to those hearing it) in patterns telling of His time here in the belly of hell, the time (in abeyance) between then and when He is seen again in glory, as the LORD of the furnace (Cyrus), walking with us in the flames and not burning up, as in the bush.

Matthew 6
1 Take heed that you do not your alms [giving this word as received, making a show of charity] before men, to be seen [admired and praised] of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Truly I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when you do alms [giving this word], let not your left hand know what your right hand does [Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters {giving it to those who don’t know its manna from the mouth of the LORD}: for you shall find it after many days.]:
4 That your alms [what you are giving] may be in secret: and your Father which sees in secret himself shall reward you openly [opening these treasures to those who then obey and give as He has given].
5 And when you pray [speak, converse, with the Farther], you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Truly I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But you, when you pray [converse with the Father], enter into your closet [tameion – a four times used word, here meaning storage room], and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly. [This verse refers us to Luke 12:2 & 3, saying “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore, whatsoever you have spoken in darkness {to the deaf and ignorant} shall be heard in the light {when understanding comes}; and that which you have spoken in the ear in closets {tameion} shall be proclaimed upon the housetops {openly}.”]
7 But when you pray, use not vain [worthless] repetitions, as the heathen [who don’t know the LORD] do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not you therefore like unto them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.
9 After this manner [ask for things of true value] therefore pray you: Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name [your identity when it’s revealed from Your place of full understanding].
10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven [giving this full understanding upon all freely, as received].
11 Give us this day our daily bread [this word from Your mouth].
12 And forgive us our debts [the sin on our account, which we cannot pay for], as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation [as those who’ve misled have doubted Your presence with us], but deliver us from evil [the misleading of these doubters]: For yours is the kingdom, and the power [to change us], and the glory [Your presence therein manifested], forever. Amen.
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when you fast [abstaining from men’s corrupt teaching], be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Truly I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face;
18 That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father which is in secret: and your Father, which sees in secret, shall reward you openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth [to be admired and praised of men], where moth and rust does corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven [from where is received this understanding, which is of the greatest value], where neither moth nor rust does corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light [understanding] of the body is the eye [seeing as the LORD sees], if therefore your eye be single [all seeing as the LORD sees], your whole [ONE] body shall be full of light [this understanding].
23 But if your eye be evil [misleading], your whole body shall be full of darkness [in ignorance]. If therefore the light [understanding] that is in you be darkness [ignorance], how great is that darkness [ignorance]!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [confidence in self or earthly wealth, the darkness that comes by trusting your own worthless opinions, as if they were truth].
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat [more than your flesh], and the body [is more] than raiment [your flesh cover]?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow [aurion – as waves of light sent into this time of clarity] is cast into the oven [klibano – when the LORD takes hold of those He’s called], shall he not much more clothe you [into His Glorious ONE BODY], O you of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought [be careful not to create your own worthless bread and water], saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles [who don’t know the LORD will provide the things we need] seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things [and he will give bread, water, and a body to cover us].
33 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow [aurion – the manifestations of metaphysical into reality]: for the morrow [aurion – the metaphysical] shall take thought [make provisions] for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil [kakia – malice] thereof.

What is “sufficient” (enough) is those who’ve “taken thought,” conspired, to do evil intentionally, with malice. The point is, don’t add to it (the intentional evil) evil done in ignorance (partial understanding) by “taking thought,” conceiving ways to provide things only the LORD can, thereby putting yourself in His place as the Provider.

The word rendered six times above as “take thought” is merimnao, meaning to be anxious about. It’s from meros, from meiromai, meaning to get as a section or allotment.

1 Corinthians 13
8 Charity [agape – giving this word as received] never fail: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues [the word of the LORD without understanding its meaning], they shall cease; whether there be [men’s] knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part [meros], and we prophesy in part [meros].
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part [meros] 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 [ignorantly, until this word of the LORD’s charity comes]; but then face to face: now I know in part [meros]; 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 – giving this word as the LORD has given it].

1 Peter 2
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice [kakia], and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking,
2 As newborn babes, [as little children] desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow [into men] thereby:
3 If so be you have tasted that the LORD is gracious.
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen [eklektos] of God, and precious,
5 You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ [manifesting Himself alive in us when we obey the Father and speak His word].
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect [eklektos], precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded [but shall come to full understanding].
7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient [and refuse to speak as commanded], the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
9 But you are a chosen [eklektos] generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called [kaleo] you out of darkness [ignorance] into his marvelous [eye opening] light [understanding];
10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy [in this conversation with Him at His mercy seat].
11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation [episkope – when He has come, now realized, as the Chief Overseer of the earth].

Paul tells us exactly the name, the identity of the chosen one the LORD would send. The disobedient, the incorrigibles, the despisers who will forever wonder what they are experiencing, even though a man (I Am), risen from among the dead, declares it to them.

Philippians 2
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither labored in vain.
17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.
18 For the same cause also do you joy, and rejoice with me.
19 But I trust in the LORD Jesus to send Timothy shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state [peri].
20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally [only used here, gnesios, from genesis, bring the new creation] care [merimnao – supply the parts unknown] for your state [peri].
21 For all seek their own [ways, creating their provisions, their own opinions], not the things which are Jesus Christ’s [and provided, rightly divided, to us by Him].
22 But you know the proof of him [having tasted it], that, as a son with the father, he has served with me in the gospel.
23 Him therefore I hope to send presently [exautes – instantly], so soon as I shall see [apeido – fully understand: know and see Him] how it will go with [peri – state of] me [after Timothy has cared for him here, and he knows it, as in verse 19 & 29 above].

Do you understand what Paul knew he would see, and be resurrected by? He knew He would see what Ezekiel saw unfold before his eyes.

2 Timothy 4
1 I [Paul] charge you therefore [Timothy, I Am] before God, and the LORD Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing [epiphaneia – epiphany, the sudden realization] and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch you in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry.
6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure [analusis – “a dissolving (into separate parts)”] is at hand.
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love [agapao – give His word reassembling the parts, which is] His appearing [epiphaneia – epiphany].

Ezekiel 1
1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar [“far off,” where his word would be sent, as the LORD’s word, before his, was sent to him, in written form], that the heavens were opened [and understanding was given by the word as the LORD’s presence moved upon it], and I saw visions [of the manifested presence and identity] of God.
2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin’s [Coniah – Jehovah will establish in the] captivity,
3 The word of the LORD [Jehovah] came expressly [hayah – as Jehovah’s manifested presence] unto Ezekiel [who God has strengthened] the priest, the son of Buzi [with contempt], in the land of [‘erets – the earth under the rule of] the Chaldeans [those using their dark, deceptive, words as the means, manipulation, of control] by the river Chebar [the word of the LORD that is carried “far off” through time]; and the hand [work] of the LORD [in His word] was there upon him.
4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind [the LORD’s Almighty Spirit moving upon the earth, from where His voice is heard] came out of the north [was heard out of this time of ignorance, when darkness covers the deep understanding of the earth], a great cloud [wherein understanding is held when its elements became separated and removed from the earth], and a fire [as a sword from His mouth rightly dividing His word from the corruption men added to it] enfolding itself, and a brightness [understanding shining from Him] was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber [chashmal, with affinity to the word chuwsh, meaning to hurry, be eager, as something made ready: a provision deployed], out of the midst of the fire.
5 Also out of the midst [from the word] thereof came the likeness [dmuwth – representations] of four living creatures [chay – creating life, from the light: the understanding they give]. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings [elevating each straight into the next level in the conversation].
7 And their feet were straight feet [never turning back as they went]; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot [rightly divided and their work clean to be consumed]: and they sparkled [natsats – shined brightly, giving understanding as they went] like the color [‘ayin – the eye, as a fountain of life] of burnished brass [polished so, in reflection, things are seen clearly].
8 And they had the hands of a man [doing the work] under their wings [joining all their work as One work] on their four sides; and they four had their faces [paniym – manifesting the LORD’s presence, the by the vision, eye, of God, as in verses 1 & 7] and their wings [their understanding lifting them].
9 Their wings were joined one to another [one conversation, in which the LORD manifests His presence]; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
10 As for the likeness of their faces [paniym – the LORD’s glory revealed in them], they four had the face of [paniym] a man [His presence manifested in the flesh], and the face [paniym] of a lion [His Almighty voice heard and received as His], [as depicted in the cherubim] on the right side [after it is received as such]: and they four had the face [paniym] of an ox [sent into the field, the earth, to do the LORD’s work] on the left side [as the other cherubim above the mercy seat, wherein the LORD presence is manifested in the conversation]; they four also had the face [paniym] of an eagle [raised in glory, the strength of the LORD’s full understanding exalted above all other voices].
[It is important to here pause and consider this representation is explaining the mystery of godliness, as Paul, the LORD in him, delineates it in 1 Timothy 3:16, saying “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was {is} manifest in the flesh {the man}, justified in the Spirit {working therein unknown, as a roaring lion, until he is}, seen of angels {when His word is received as His, seeing him, they become His messengers He sends into His field, as the ox}, preached {by the same understanding He’s given} unto the Gentiles {with the same conversation, the LORD engaging those who haven’t known Him}, believed {that His word is His presence manifested in the flesh of those He chooses and sends with His word} on in the world {His field}, received {by those hearing Him speaking} up into glory {as an eagle, with His strength, rising with full understanding to meet Him in heaven, a state of men’s minds here on the earth}.]
11 Thus were their faces [paniym – the LORD presence manifested in this way]: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies [so they are not seen, but the LORD in them, lifting them, is realized to be the ONE, Yahh, to whom it appertains {ya’ah}].
12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit [the LORD in them unknown working] was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
13 As for the likeness [dmuwth – the representation] of the living creatures [chay, as they created life, the LORD in them the source of the light: His understanding sent through this means], their appearance was like burning coals [gechel – glowing] of fire, and like the appearance of lamps [giving light so men can see their way in this time of darkness]: it [the glowing fire of these lamps] went up and down among the living creatures [chay – giving life to any who receive it as the LORD’s light]; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning [understanding from the cloud, from where His voice roared as thunder].
14 And the living creatures [chay – the life they gave] ran [ratsa’ – said to mean received, as in an almost identical word {ratsa’}, meaning to pierce; here Ezekiel is speaking of the epiphany, when the word pierced his ear and entered his mind, and he came to life: became the “living creatures”] and returned [shuwb – returned to his right mind and realized the LORD was with him and now alive in him] as the appearance of a flash of lightning [bazaq, only used here, speaking the epiphany as spoiling, causing him to disesteem, everything he thought he knew before]. [Philippians 3: 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my LORD: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things {I thought I knew}, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith {in His presence with me, in me}: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.]
15 Now as I beheld the living creatures [Now, when I clearly see the life and how it comes], behold [I clearly saw] one wheel [‘owphan, this is a chariot wheel, as connected by an “axletree” to a wheel on the other side; it is a representation of the full course of the work of the Creator of life] of upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces [paniym – the full work of the LORD, giving Ezekiel full understanding and thereby raising him to life].
16 The appearance of the wheels [‘owphan – meaning to revolve, meaning going through this same cycle over and over again] and their work [the LORD’s work in this way] was like unto the color [‘ayin – was to be seen, by the eye and the description from the fountain, as] of a beryl [tarshiysh – a seven time used word always rendered beryl; it’s the name Tarshish, an epithet telling us it is like merchant ship traveling upon the sea; which, with further deconstruction, reveals a deeper meaning of it plucking {sharash} us from the mouths that are hell’s gates {tra’}] : and they four had one likeness [One message, One conversation]: and their appearance and their work [the LORD work in this manner] was as it were a wheel [‘owphan – a full revolution, giving life in this manner, sent thought time in written form, connected on the other side to those receiving it in the future into which it is sent] in the middle [tavek – bisected, connected in the center: both by the ONE, Yahh present in the work, to whom it appertains {ya’ah}, who rightly divides it] a wheel [the same understanding received, in the same way, producing the same life in the receiver who receives it as the LORD presence with them, and in them].
17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
18 As for their rings [gab – also meaning their back, what is seen after their work, when the LORD therein has long-suffered to take it full course], they were so high that they were dreadful [this is the fear that fell upon the men in the ship taking Jonah to Tarshish, when they realized {Jonah 1:16} it was the LORD to whom the storm appertained, and they vowed vows {nadar neder}]; and their rings [gab – when their work was complete] were full of eyes [‘ayin – all the colors therein, of the rightly divided light, were seen] round about [cabiyb – in the full circle of the LORD’s work in] them four.
19 And when the living creatures [the Creator of life] went, the wheels [this full circuit of His work] went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up [the LORD’s work exalted, His word separated] from [the works of men of] the earth, the wheels [His words] were lifted up [exalted above the words of men].
20 Whithersoever the spirit [of the LORD unknown] was to go, they [those the LORD chooses to work through and reveal Himself] went, thither was their spirit [the LORD unknown in them] to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them [to those who don’t know Him]: for the spirit of the living creature [the Creator of life] was in the wheels.
21 When those went, these went; and when those stood [to make Him known], these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature [the LORD, the Creator of life, is in them unknown doing the work] was in the wheels [the word sent and the flesh in whom He works].
22 And the likeness of the firmament [the exposition, spreading out the heaven before men, wherein the water of the earth are separated from the word of God, which the LORD calls Heaven {Genesis 1:6 – 8}] upon the heads [in the LORD’s mind] of the living creature [the Creator of life] was as the color [‘ayin – seen, by the words from the Fountain of living waters] of the terrible crystal [yare’ qerach – ice to be feared; the word of the LORD that He reserved, froze, in the cloud, to from there be sent now in this time of war], stretched forth [natah – bowed down the heavens, in the exposition; as seen in the previous post in Psalms 86:1 & 2 Samuel 22:10, when the LORD came down to help David when He asked] over their heads above [in the conversation wherein His presence is manifested above His mercy seat].
23 And under the firmament [in this exposition that rightly divides truth from falsehood] were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.
24 And when they went, I heard the noise [qowl – the voice] of their wings, like the noise [qowl – the voice] of great waters, as the voice [qowl] of the Almighty, the voice [qowl] of speech, as the noise [qowl] of a host [the LORD awakened army, He raises at His will]: when they stood, they let down their wings.
25 And there was [hayah] a voice [qowl – of the LORD’s presence] from the firmament [this exposition] that was over their heads [in the conversation above His mercy seat], when they stood, and had let down their wings.
26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne [of the LORD], as the appearance of a sapphire stone [cappiyr – referring to the first use of the word, Exodus 24:10, saying “And they {the obedient} saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone {cappiyr}, and as it {His way} were the body of heaven in his clearness.]: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man [‘adam – the second Adam, who is sent, I Am, as a quickening Spirit] above upon it.
27 And I saw as the color of amber [chashmal, with affinity to the word chuwsh, meaning to hurry, be eager, as something made ready: a provision deployed], as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness [light] round about.
28 As the appearance of the bow [the light divided into its many colors] that is in the cloud in the day of rain [as a sign from the LORD, the remembrance that He would never again destroy all flesh with a flood, but would come to the rescue of any and all who receive Him and enter His new heaven and earth with Him], so was the appearance of the brightness [the understanding] round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory [as in 1 Timothy 3:16 above, when He is exalted] of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one [I Am, the man] that spoke.

Friends, these are the wheels we’ve all now experienced, just as did Ezekiel. He, the LORD speaking through him, goes on in the following two chapters to describe the same event in much less cryptic terms. Please don’t misunderstand: the LORD is the One doing the work and speaking, freeing us to open our mouths when the cycle has run His course and overwritten our minds with His understanding. He, the Almighty, is truly alive in me, as He is in any who receive Him and lend themselves to diligently follow and learn of Him.

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.

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 [with the burdens of men’s corruption], and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you [join me in my work], and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Ezekiel 2
1 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand [as in Ezekiel 1:21, 24, & 25 above] upon your feet, and I will speak unto you [to make My presence known to you and in you]
2 And the spirit entered into me when he spoke unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spoke unto me.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send you to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.
4 For they are impudent children and stiff-hearted. I do send you unto them; and you shall say unto them, Thus says the LORD God.
5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there has been a prophet among them.
6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns [deceivers and misleaders] be with you, and you do dwell among scorpions [whose words are poisonous]: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7 And you shall speak my words unto them [in your flesh I shall manifest My presence, revealing the mystery of godliness. You shall see Me as I Am and become My angel preaching My words to those who haven’t known Me. They shall believe I Am alive in you and in your flesh I shall be glorified], whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
8 But you, son of man, hear what I say unto you; Be not you rebellious like that rebellious house: open your mouth, and eat that I give you.
9 And when I looked, behold, a hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll [mgillah – the volume] of a book was therein;
10 And he spread it [in the exposition] before [paniym – by His presence to] me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

Ezekiel 3
1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that you find [as you diligently seek Me]; eat this roll [mgillah], and go speak unto the house of Israel.
2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll [mgillah].
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause your belly to eat, and fill your bowels with this roll [mgillah] that I give you. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get you unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
5 For you are not sent to a people of a strange speech and of a hard language, but to the house of Israel;
6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of a hard language, whose words you can not understand. Surely, had I sent you to them, they would have hearkened unto you.
7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto [shama’ – and obey] you; for they will not hearken unto [shama’ – and obey] me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
8 Behold, I have made your face [paniym – My presence] strong against their faces [as depicted in the cherubim above the mercy seat], and your forehead strong against their foreheads.
9 As an adamant [shamiyr – as to pierce their hardened minds] harder than flint have I made your forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto you receive in your heart [into your mind, your memory], and hear [shama’ – and obey] with your ears [and I will broaden your ear when you commit My words to memory, and your ability to hear Me will increase].
11 And go, get you to them of the captivity [write my words to be sent to this time and place], unto the children of your people [who will therein find themselves written], and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus says the LORD God; whether they will hear [shama’ – obey], or whether they will forbear [and refuse to hear or obey].
12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing [ra’ash – the shaking that brings the dead bones together, and cautions men to be careful how they handle this word and to whom they listen], saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.
13 I heard also the noise [qowl – voice] of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise [qowl – voice] of the wheels over against them, and a noise [qowl – voice] of a great rushing [ra’ash – the voice of the LORD now shaking heaven and earth].

Hebrews 12
21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
22 But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels [messengers sent to preach this same word],
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written [in the volume of the book] in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.
25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on [Abel whose blood spoke from the] earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven [this place of full understanding, here in Heavenly New Jerusalem, here on the earth]:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those [corrupt] things that are shaken, as of things that are made [by men], that those things [of the LORD] which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace [receive this gift], whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 10
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do your will, O God.
8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin you would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do your will, O God [obeying your call, and taking up Your cross, making the necessary sacrifice, in which you delight], He takes away the first, that he may establish the second [the new and living way].
10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For by one offering he has perfected forever them that are sanctified.
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest [into the presence of the LORD] by the blood [necessary sacrifice] of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh [in whom He chooses to manifest His presence];
21 And having a high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith [in His presence] without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together [into His ONE BODY as He commands], as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and has done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, says the LORD. And again, The LORD shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

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.
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; my ears have you opened [to hear and obey Your voice alone]: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume [mgillah] of the book it is written of me,
8 I delight to do your will, O my God: yea, your law is within my heart [in my mind].
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, you know.
10 I have not hid your righteousness within my heart; I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation: I have not concealed your lovingkindness and your truth from the great congregation.
11 Withhold not you your tender mercies from me, O LORD: let your lovingkindness and your truth continually preserve me.
12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: my iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head: therefore my heart fails me.
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.
