The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spoke unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,

16 – 19 October 2023

The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spoke unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,

The title verse, Proverbs 30:1, is followed by verse 2, saying, “Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man.” The names of the one speaking verse 2, Agur the son of Jakeh, prophesying of this moment, speak of those here gathered and born by their obedience to what is heard. The names are edifimorphicly (understood through the “transformative education”) spoken by Solomon of himself, speaking of transformation, of those who were before ignorant, by receiving Divine instruction and wisdom directly from the LORD their God.

The name Agur, is from the three times used word ‘agar, meaning “to harvest:– gather,” and Jakeh is said to be from an unused root meaning to obey or be obedient. It is said to be the same as the twice-used word yiqqahah, meaning “obedience: -gathering, to obey.”

The harvest is the fruit that brings transformation, a change of mind, understanding given and received, producing the obedience that gathers all God’s people in the culmination of the process (of repetition).

Before looking at these words, which confirm the perspective, we must understand he is speaking (confessing his transgression while ignorant) to the One who gave (Solomon – meaning peaceful, like Shiloh) this understanding. The name Ithiel, means God has arrived, from the words ‘athah (“to arrive”) and ‘el (God). The name Ucal, from ‘akal, means to devour, as the LORD’s all-consuming fire from His mouth ends the darkness (consuming men’s ignorance).

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 below 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 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]:

Ezekiel 21
26 Thus says the LORD God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.
27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he [Shiloh] come whose right it is [referring to 1 Chronicles 5:1 & 2, where we’re told the birthright is Joseph’s: his seed’s]; and I will give it him.
28 And you, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus says the LORD God concerning the Ammonites [those who’ve scattered you from the flock], and concerning their reproach; even say you, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering:
29 Whiles they see vanity unto you, whiles they divine a lie unto you, to bring you upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.
30 Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge you in the place where you were created, in the land of your nativity.
31 And I will pour out my indignation [za’am] upon you, I will blow against you in the fire of my wrath, and deliver you into the hand of brutish men, and skillful to destroy.
32 You shall be for fuel to the fire; your blood shall be in the midst of the land; you shall be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.

Ezekiel 37
15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, you son of man, take you one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one [ONE BODY under one head] in your hand.
18 And when the children of your people shall speak unto you, saying, Will you not show us what you mean by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes [shebet – the scepter to rule] of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in my hand.
20 And the sticks whereon you write shall be in your hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land [as promised]:
22 And I will make them ONE nation [fig tree] in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and ONE king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have ONE shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children forever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God [the vine to which they are connected in My ONE BODY], and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify [cleanse them of their corruption] Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

Genesis 49
18 (I have waited for your salvation, 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 of this world whose teaching has blinded all form seeing the Father, in the son, the seed of the women who brings forth the man child – see Revelation 12:17] have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless [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 shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from 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 his 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 by 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.]

The only other time the word yiqqahah appears is later in Proverbs 30, in verse 17, speaking of those who refuse to “obey” their mother (rejecting this wisdom flowing from their teacher).

Proverbs 30
1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spoke unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,
2 Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not [had not when I was a child] the understanding of a man.
3 I neither learned wisdom [until I put away childish things], nor have [had] the knowledge of the holy [until I received it as Your voice and presence].
4 Who [except You] has ascended up into heaven, or descended? who has gathered the wind in his fists? who has bound the waters in a garment? who has established all the ends of the earth [ending the old corrupt age and beginning the new, ending darkness and bringing light]? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if you can tell?
5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6 Add you not unto his words, lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar.
7 Two things have I required of you; deny me them not before I die:
8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
9 Lest I be full, and deny you, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
10 Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he curse you, and you be found guilty.
11 There is a generation 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, and always 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 the 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] bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.

Proverbs 29
7 The righteous considers the cause of the poor [those without power]: but the wicked regards not to know it.
8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.
9 If a wise man contends with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest [because the fool never says enough, never comes to understanding or truth].
10 The bloodthirsty [fools] hate the upright: but the just seek [to save] his soul.
11 A fool utters all his mind: but a wise man keeps it in till afterwards [until the foolish have opened their mouths and proved themselves ignorant].
12 If a ruler hearkens to lies [as do Barak and His idiot son Brandon], all his servants are wicked [as they are].
13 The poor [without worldly power] and the deceitful man [in power] meet together: the LORD lightens both their eyes [giving this understanding].
14 The king that faithfully judges the poor, his throne shall be established forever.
15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself brings his mother [who taught him] to shame [never making him a man].
16 When the wicked are multiplied [as they are], transgression increases [as it has]: but the righteous shall see their fall.
17 Correct your son, and he shall give you rest; yea, he shall give delight unto your soul.
18 Where there is no vision [as now among those in power], the people perish [as they do]: but he that keeps the law [of the LORD], happy is he.
19 A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not [in due season] answer [ma’aneh – a seven times used word referring us to its appearance in Proverbs 15:23 – see below].
20 See you a man that is hasty in his words [and answers without study]? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
21 He that delicately brings up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.

Proverbs 15
23 A man has joy by the answer [ma’aneh] of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!
24 The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow [those who haven’t had a man to defend and protect them].
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words [showing they understand the season].
27 He that is greedy of gain troubles his own house; but he that hates gifts [the bribes the wicked in power take] shall live.
28 The heart of the righteous studies to answer: but the mouth of the wicked pour out evil things.
29 The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
30 The light [understanding] of the eyes rejoices the heart: and a good report makes the bones fat.
31 The ear that hears the reproof of life abides among the wise.
32 He that refuses instruction despises his own soul [keeping himself held in death]: but he that hears reproof gets understanding.
33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility.

The word ‘athah, which in Ithiel speaks of God’s arrival (the epiphany), is said to be from ‘uwth, meaning “to come, i.e. (implied) to assent:–consent.” In these definitions, we understand it speaks of minds in agreement, in context, telling of when we see as the LORD does, thereby realizing what before was unseen.

The word (‘athah) first appears in Deuteronomy 33:2, speaking of the LORD’s arrival, and next in verse 21 speaking of Gad, the LORD’s raised army. The chapter begins as Moses, before his death, speaks a blessing to God’s people. In both occurrences of the word, he tells us the LORD appears against the evil misleaders in power, oppressing God’s people and keeping them from His blessing.

Deuteronomy 33
2 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai [among the thorns: against misleaders on high who are as pricks in our eyes], and rose up from Seir [against devils mixed among us in power, as our countrymen, who say they are at peace with us while they war against us] unto them; he shined forth [sends His understand to repel the attack of the wicked] from mount Paran [from pa’ar – meaning “to explain (i.e. make clear) oneself”], and he came with ten thousands of saints [Gad later spoken of, and as Enoch foretold]: from his right hand [the strength of this understanding that comes through His work] went a fiery law for them.
3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in your hand: and they sat down at your feet [to learn]; every one shall receive [understanding] of your words.

The above references to the pricks that blind our eyes and the LORD coming against them with His saints, are to Numbers 33:55 and Jude 1:14 & 15.

Numbers 33
50 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the plains [plainly seeing and understand] of Moab [that the gates of hell are the open mouths of men] by Jordan [their words that carried all in the descent into death] near Jericho [the civil government ruling, oppressing and repressing, by lies, as policy, and blinded them from seeing as the LORD sees], saying,
51 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When you are passed over [‘abar – Passed over death into life] Jordan into [the words holding you in death] the land [‘erets – the earth] of Canaan [meaning humiliated, speaking to those openly {ignorantly} speaking and acting out things of which they should be ashamed];
52 Then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land [‘erets – the earth] from before you [paniym – from the presence of the LORD with you], and destroy all their pictures [their fictitious depictions of their delusion as reality], and destroy all their molten images [their everchanging standard of good and evil], and quite pluck down all their high places [from where they teach and govern by these insanities]:
53 And you shall dispossess [retake and restore order to the good earth I have given you] the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.
54 And you shall divide the land by lot [the earth where you now find yourselves] for an inheritance among your families: and to the more you shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer you shall give the less inheritance: every man’s inheritance shall be in the place where his lot falls [where you now find yourselves]; according to the tribes [branches of the tree whose root you are unaware] of your fathers you shall inherit.
55 But if you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land [‘erets – the earth] from before you [paniym – from the LORD’s presence with you]; then it shall come to pass, that those which you let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes [blinding you to His presence], and thorns in your sides [misleaders among you deceiving you], and shall vex you in the land wherein you dwell.
56 Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you, as I thought to do unto them [My faithful will drive you out with those rejecting reality and refusing life, and you shall remain in your chosen hell forever].

The words, above in verse 55, rendered “pricks” and “thorns,” are the once used (while profoundly deep) words sek and tsaniyn.

The first is said to be form cakak (sakak), meaning “properly, to entwine as a screen; by implication, to fence in, cover over, (figuratively) protect.” It’s the word used to describe the wings of the cherubim “covering” the mercy seat. It also tells of the devil’s, as the original “covering” cherubim, a misleading prick [thorn growing] in the garden. As we know from the LORD’s teaching, these cherubim, precisely described by Ezekiel (3:8 & 9), are the LORD’s messengers, face to face, receiving and sending His message, producing after their own kind.

The once-used word tsaniyn is said to be from an unused root meaning prickly. Its deeper affinity is to tanniyn, which we know speaks of serpents and whales, for their wide open mouth with which they devour their prey (often rendered “dragon”).

Jude 1
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints [so you will become the saints who come with the LORD, contending against the ungodly speaking against Him].
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares [now mixed among you as devils], who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only LORD God, and our LORD Jesus Christ.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though you once knew this, how that the LORD, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate [which is to receive and deliver the word of God without alteration], but left their own habitation [and give their own words instead], he has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness [their own ignorance] unto the judgment of the great day.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The LORD rebuke you.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withers, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints [whose lot is cast into this evil time, at the LORD’s will],
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth [devouring as serpents and whales] speaking great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration [condemning or forgiving] because of advantage [their positions of power over God’s people].
17 But, beloved, remember you the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our LORD Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves [from the LORD, saying they are holier than He], sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, building up [edifying] yourselves [accepting the change, putting] on your most holy faith [which was once delivered, the first dominion, to His saints appearing with Him], praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our LORD Jesus Christ [manifested in His unrelenting conversation here above His mercy seat] unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling [harpazo – the word rendered “caught up” in 1 Thessalonians 4:17] them out of the fire; hating even the garment [the dead flesh] spotted [sained] by the flesh [of those spoken of in verse 12 above].
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Deuteronomy 33
20 And of Gad [the LORD’s saints as His risen army] he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head [the strength of the those in power].
21 And he provided the first part for himself, because there, in a portion of the lawgiver, was he seated; and he came [‘athah – the LORD arrived] with the heads of the people, he [in His army] executed the justice of the Lord, and his judgments with Israel.

The final use of the word ‘athah, speaking of the arrival of God, His appearing in His kingdom on the earth, comes in Micah 4:8.

Micah 4
1 But in the last days [‘achariyth] it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains [His government above all others], and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow [as the waters of the sea] unto it.
2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach [yarah, as in Jerusalem, yara’ shalam: flow His ways of sustainable peace and security into us, as living waters into the sea] us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion [My throne here on the earth], and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts [who is a man of righteous war] has spoken it.
5 For all people [if they choose] will walk everyone in the name of his god [men putting themselves in the place of the true God], and we [demonstrating His better ways and ideas] will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.
6 In that day, says the LORD, will I assemble her that halted [went lame and strayed from My high {better} way], and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted [letting them experience the consequences of following men who put themselves in My place];
7 And I will make her that halted [those who strayed] a remnant [My elect remnant in these last days, those remaining alive with me], and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion [My kingdom on the earth, where I will dwell] from henceforth, even forever.
8 And you, O tower [you that see these things and understand what has come and is coming] of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto you shall it come [‘athah – to the LORD’s arrival], even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem [His saints into whom these living waters have flowed His life].
9 Now why do you cry out aloud? is there no king in you? is your counsellor perished? for pangs have taken you as a woman in travail [to bring forth the king in your midst – I Am].
10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shall you go forth out of the city, and you shall dwell in the field, and you shall go even to Babylon [realizing and confessing the confusion in the corrupt city where you dwell apart from the LORD]; there shall you be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem you from the hand of your enemies.
11 Now also many nations [those who don’t know the LORD and therefore can’t see His presence] are gathered against you [against those that do see Him, as they are this day], that say, Let her be defiled [by their evil words and false accusations], and let our eye look upon Zion [proclaiming what their evil eye sees here in the LORD’s kingdom among them].
12 But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor [to be separated from His people as chaff separated from wheat].
13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make your horn [power] iron, and I will make your hoofs brass: and you shall beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the LORD of the whole earth.

Job 37
1 At this also my heart trembles [minds are shaken], and is moved out of his place [changed from ignorance to understanding].
2 Hear attentively [shama’ – obey] the noise of his voice, and the sound that goes out of his mouth.
3 He directs it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.
4 After it a voice roars [as a lion among lions]: he thunders [the sound of the light, understanding, from the cloud] with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them [understanding] when his voice is heard [as His, as it is].
5 God thunders marvelously with his voice; great things does he, which we cannot comprehend [until he explains them in His revelation].
6 For he says to the snow [His word frozen, reserved, in heaven in the cloud], Be you on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength [that gives understanding].
7 He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.
8 Then the beasts [without His Spirit] go into dens, and remain in their places [no longer trespassing into things they shouldn’t].
9 Out of the south comes the whirlwind [from His right hand of power]: and cold out of the north.
10 By the breath [life in His Spirit from His mouth] of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened [by His Spirit moving upon the darkened deep the waters are again right ordered, and light, understanding, comes into being].
11 Also by watering he wearies the thick cloud [emptying onto the earth the understanding held there in separated elements]: he scatters his bright cloud [behind which, in the shadow, these treasures of full light have been hidden]:
12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may [obey Him and] do whatsoever he commands them upon the face of [paniym – when His presence is by these things revealed to] the world [this generation in this age] in the earth [‘erets].
13 He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for his land [‘erets – His earth], or for mercy.
14 Hearken unto this, O Job [you people of God’s who are hated in the last generation that darkens this age]: stand still, and consider the wondrous works [at which you wonder what you’re experiencing] of God [which you haven’t yet fully understood, evident in your refusal to obey His commands].
15 Do you know when God disposed them [ended the wondering], and caused the light [understanding] of his cloud to shine [upon the earth as it now does]?
16 Do you know the balancings of [maphlas – only appearing here, meaning what is poised therein: reserved to be sent at this appointed time from] the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?
17 How your garments are warm [How your flesh cover is brought back to life], when he quiets the earth by the south wind [as His Spirit move upon the earth, as a whirlwind from where His Almighty voice is heard cleansing the earth]?
18 Have you with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass [from where He sees everything that comes or will come]?
19 Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness [your own ignorance, by remaining with the corrupt who only know corruption].
20 Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speaks [opposing Him], surely he shall be swallowed up [by his own words, thinking they will stand against the whirlwind of the Almighty].
21 And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passes [His Spirit moves], and cleanses them [of the corruption that pollutes the earth].
22 Fair weather comes [‘athah – at the LORD’s arrival] out of the north [when corruption is cleansed from the ignorant]: with God is terrible majesty.
23 Touching the Almighty [whose voice is heard from the whirlwind], we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
24 Men do therefore fear him: he respects not any that are wise of heart [proud and unchangeable away from their corrupt thinking].

Job 38
1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2 Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Gird up now your loins like a man; for I will demand of you, and answer you me.
4 Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if you have understanding.
5 Who has laid the measures thereof, if you know? or who has stretched the line upon it [have you assessed it and brought it to light]?
6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner [pinnah – the head, master, the builders refused] stone thereof;
7 When the morning stars [sprang to light and] sang together [opened their mouths as the LORD commanded], and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it broke forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
9 When I made the cloud [the place where understanding was kept] the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddling-band for it [and ignorance its protective wrapping],
10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
11 And said, Hitherto shall you come, but no further: and here shall your proud waves [the pride of man] be stayed?
12 Have you commanded the morning since your days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
13 That it might take hold of the ends [of the old and beginning the new] of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
14 It is turned as clay to the seal [chowtham – My signature pressed into the earth]; and they stand as a garment [as on the mountain, seen as the shining garments of light].
15 And from the wicked their light [understanding] is withheld, and the high arm [the evil works of those in power, devils now misleading the world in hell] shall be broken.
16 Have you entered into the springs of the sea? or have you walked in the search of the depth [the deep things only the Father knows]?
17 Have the gates of death [hell] been opened unto you? or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death?
18 Have you perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if you know it all.
19 Where is the way where light dwell? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
20 That you should take it to the bound thereof, and that you should know the paths to the house thereof?
21 Know you it, because you were then born? or because the number of your days is great?
22 Have you entered into the treasures of the snow? or have you seen the treasures of the hail, [these speaks of God’s word frozen {reserved} in heaven, for this moment]
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble [tsar – of the enemies pressing evil upon us], against the day of battle and war?

Ezekiel 3
4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get you unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
5 For you are not sent to a people of a strange speech and of a hard language, but to the house of Israel;
6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of a hard language, whose words you can not understand [shama’]. Surely, had I sent you to them, they would have hearkened [shama’ – obeyed] unto you.
7 But the house of Israel will not hearken [shama’] unto you; for they will not hearken [shama’ will not obery, as it is this day] unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
8 Behold, I have made your face strong against their faces [as the cherubim above My mercy seat], and your forehead strong against their foreheads.
9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto you receive in your heart, and hear [shama’] with your ears.
11 And go, get you to them of the captivity, unto the children of your people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus says the LORD God; whether they will hear [shama’ – obey], or whether they will forbear.
12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard [shama’ – obeyed] behind [‘achar – in these last days] me a voice of a great rushing [as water pouring from heaven upon the earth], saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

Isaiah 21
1 The burden of the desert [midbar] of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass [sweeping away the old ideas and ways]; so it comes from the desert, from a terrible land [yare’ – the land causing fear, see verse 4 and Isaiah 8:12 & 13, “Say you not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear you their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.”]
2 A grievous vision is declared unto me; the treacherous dealer deals treacherously, and the spoiler spoils. Go up, O Elam [this is speaking of eternity, as in the ancient things {God’s word} stored of old, to be released now in this war – also see Jeremiah 49 telling of the LORD’s throne being established here]: besiege, O Media [people in the middle – as in lukewarm, Revelation 3:14 thru 22]; all the sighing [‘anachah – referring us to Isaiah 35:10 & 51:11 when the LORD silences the enemies and puts His words in our mouths] thereof have I made to cease.
3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travails [she is bringing forth a man child]: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.
4 My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure has he turned into fear unto me.
5 Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, you princes, and anoint [the one who is] the shield.
6 For thus has the LORD said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.
7 And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed:
8 And he cried, A lion [‘ariy – the body of Christ rising by/with His strength]: My LORD, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights:
9 And, behold, here comes a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon [confusion’s rule] is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he has broken unto the ground.
10 O my threshing [opening the word, referring us to Isaiah 28, and destroying the gates of hell], and the corn [ben – sons] of my [threshing] floor: that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.
11 The burden of Dumah [short for Edom {Esau} and meaning the silencing of the enemies in our midst – as in verse 2 above]. He called to me out of Seir [from among the devils in the high places of Esau], Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night [the time of ignorance, which is caused by their {Edom’s} words]?
12 The watchman said, The morning [understand coming as the light of the sunrise] comes [‘athah – at the LORD’s arrival], and also the night [and these men will reject this word and choose to remain in ignorance]: if you will enquire [ba’ah], enquire – [ba’ah – only used three other times – here referring us to Obadiah, verse 6, where it is rendered “sought up,” which tells us this is how the secret things of Esau are revealed {by enquiring}]: return [shuwb – turn us], come [‘athah – at the LORD’s arrival].
13 The burden upon Arabia [the desert spoken of in verse 1, without water, without God’s word]. In the forest in Arabia shall you lodge, O you travelling companies of Dedanim [these people are defined in Jeremiah 49:8 – they are those spoken of in the prior verse, who return, and in doing escape the calamity that comes upon Esau].
14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema [same as Teman – the place of the Theophany – where the LORD appears with His ten-thousands, as Enoch said, “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.”] brought [‘athah – at the LORD’s arrival] water to him that was thirsty, they prevented [went before] with their bread him that fled.
15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.
16 For thus has the LORD said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, and all the glory of Kedar [darkness] shall fail:
17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar [darkness], shall be diminished: for the LORD God of Israel has spoken it.

Isaiah 41
1 Keep silence before me, O islands [you without my word among My people]; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.
2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east [as the rising of the sun, giving understanding upon the earth], called him to his foot [resurrecting me to life], gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.
3 He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.
4 Who has wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning [to this same life]? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I Am he.
5 The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came [‘athah – at the LORD’s arrival].
6 They [ignorant of his arrival, turned the idol they created] helped every one his neighbor; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage [trust in the idols we call by the LORD’s name].
7 So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smooths with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the soldering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.
8 But you, Israel, are my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
9 You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called you from the chief men thereof, and said unto you, You are my servant; I have chosen you, and not cast you away.
10 Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.
11 Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with you shall perish.
12 You shall seek them, and shall not find them, even them that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing, and as a thing of naught.
13 For I the LORD your God will hold your right hand, saying unto you, Fear not; I will help you.
14 Fear not, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel; I will help you, says the LORD, and your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 Behold, I will make you a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: you shall thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shall make the hills as chaff.
16 You shall fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and you shall rejoice in the LORD, and shall glory in the Holy One of Israel.
17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue fails for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:
20 That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.
21 Produce your cause, says the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, says the King of Jacob.
22 Let them bring them forth, and show us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end [‘achariyht – the last days] of them; or declare us [shama’ – that we may obey] things for to come.
23 Show the things that are to come [‘athah – at the LORD’s arrival] hereafter [‘achowr – at this end], that we may know that you are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.
24 Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of naught: an abomination is he that chooses you.
25 I have raised up one from the north [among the ignorant], and he shall come [‘athah – at the LORD’s arriving]: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon morter, and as the potter treads clay.
26 Who has declared from the beginning, that we may know? and beforetime, that we may say, He is righteous? yea, there is none that shows, yea, there is none that declares [shama’ – obeys], yea, there is none that hears [shama’ – obeys] your words.
27 The first shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them: and I will give to Jerusalem one that brings good tidings.
28 For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counsellor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.
29 Behold, they are all vanity [worthless]; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion.

Psalms 68
28 Your God has commanded your strength [understanding]: strengthen, O God, that which you have wrought for us.
29 Because of your temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto you.
30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter you the people that delight in war.
31 Princes shall come out [‘athah – at the LORD’s arrival against the oppressors] of Egypt; Ethiopia [those covered in the darkness of their own ignorance] shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
32 Sing unto God, you kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the LORD; Selah [think]:
33 To him that rides upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he does send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.
34 Ascribe you strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength [understanding] is in the clouds.
35 O God, you are terrible out of your holy places: the God of Israel is he that gives strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.

Isaiah 44
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 [‘athah – declaring My own arrival], and shall come, let them show unto them.
8 Fear you not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? you are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity [worthless]; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses [their shame witnesses against them]; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
10 Who has formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?
11 Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

Isaiah 45
10 Woe unto him that says unto his father, What begettest you? or to the woman, What have you brought forth?
11 Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come [‘athah – the LORD’s arrival] concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command you me.
12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.
13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, says the LORD of hosts.

Psalms 91
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place [among these treasures] of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence [of men’s deceptive words].
4 He shall cover [cakak] you with his feathers, and under his wings shall you trust: his truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence [the deceptions] that walketh in darkness [that come upon the ignorant]; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday [against this light].
7 A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come nigh you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the Most High, your habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
12 They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon [tanniyn – the words that are as thorns, misleaders among you] shall you [by going the right way] trample under feet.
14 Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name [My identity with him].
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble [tsarah – this tribulation]; I will deliver him, and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.
