Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?

10 – 12 November 2023

Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?

The above is the LORD speaking through Job of His people’s current condition, as Job, God’s hated people in this generation, ponder recognizing, in the conversation, it is His presence, while not seeing it is His day: the Day (light returned) of the LORD.

Friends, as mentioned in previous posts (and often), God’s people are blinded to His time by the many voices of the proud, some describing Him and His way, all (Babylon as a whole) mixing their ignorance into this truth, clogging and polluting the well. These men, hiding behind the spurious mask of false humility, are building their own kingdoms, not knowing by this, they make themselves His adversaries (satan – resisting and opposing His will and plan).

This one voice, exalted above all others, is the salvation of the world. The LORD doesn’t force it on any. It’s willing compliance, seeing it’s the Father in son (me – I Am) speaking and working, and faithfully, by choice, obeying His commands: His will.

Philippians 1
25 And having this confidence [In the LORD in me], I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;
26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.
27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries [satan]: which is to them an evident token [sign] of perdition [apoleia – their perishing that comes from endlessly wrestling with this word until they destroy themselves], but to you of salvation, and that of God.
29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to [long] suffer for his sake;
30 Having the same conflict [agon – this same good fight] which you saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

Philippians 2
1 If there be therefore any [ei tis – when a man] consolation [paraklesis – calls to you] in Christ [the LORD alive in my flesh], if any comfort [paramuthion – only appearing here, meaning this persuasive address] of love [agape – giving this word of the LORD as received], if any fellowship [koinania – joint participation] of the Spirit, if any bowels and [if in these is revealed the LORD’s] mercies,
2 Fulfil you my joy, that you be likeminded, having the same love [agape – giving the same word a received], being of one accord, of one mind.
3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
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 [Timothy – time of Theos] which is above every name: [The word time {Tim} means “a value, i.e. money paid, or (concretely and collectively) valuables; by analogy, esteem (especially of the highest degree), or the dignity itself.” It is a name never given in my family. It is given by God {Theos}, intentionally telling of the “time” no man would know, and only my father knew. The LORD spoke of sending me long ago, revealing me in His time, this Day when His understanding covers the earth.]
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 [Jehovah Salvation manifested in the flesh] is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed [in all ways obey], not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out [katergazomai – this is the LORD’s work in and through us] your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which work in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputing:
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 [understanding] 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 Timotheus [Timothy – the time of God] shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state [when your obedience is fulfilled].
20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.
21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.
22 But you know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he has served with me in the gospel.

Hebrews 5
5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made a high priest; but he [the Father] that said [in Psalms 2:7, to His anointed when the heathen are raging thinking they will break the unbreakable band of His law and cast away the cords that bind man to Him as Creator] unto him [as He said to me], “You are my Son, today have I begotten you.”
6 As he says also in another place, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered [the warned of experience of not obeying the advice that is for our good];
9 And being made perfect [by obedience], he became [I Am] the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
10 Called of God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing [not yet hearing this word as the word of God].
12 For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles [stoicheion – elements] of the oracles [the written word delivered to us] of God; and are become such as have need of milk [basic foundational understanding, by which lacking your ignorance is proven without obedience and confession of His presence and work], and not of strong meat [the deep understanding you evidently still lack].
13 For every one that uses [still desires only the superficial understanding] milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe [remaining in a childish state].
14 But strong meat [deep understanding, the realization that brings faith and obedience] belongs to them that are of full age [and have become men], even those who by reason of use [of the things that have made them men] have their senses exercised [the corruption worked out of their minds] to discern both good and evil [and learned to choose the good and refuse the evil].

2 Corinthians 10
2 But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some [who commend themselves and have faith in their own words and ways], which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh [by our own ways and ideas, having faith in ourselves].
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6 And having in a readiness [when subordination comes] to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
7 Do you look on things after the outward appearance? if any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he [thinks he] is Christ’s, even so are we [truly] Christ’s.
8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the LORD has given us for edification [building you into warriors in His army, the ONE BODY in which He lives], and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed [I will not fail to bring you, those the LORD has predestined, into this perfection and promised end]
9 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters [when you understand this is the LORD present as He said He would be, doing His work].
10 For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.
11 Let such a one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed [weighty and powerful] when we are present.
12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule [canon – the LORD’s standard] which God has distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you [to reveal Him, His mind to those He has chosen].
14 For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far [as He has ordained] as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ [which is His power in you when He has risen to life in you as He has in me]:
15 Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men’s labors; but having hope [of your perfection], when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged [when you understand it is the LORD in us] by you according to our rule [canon – the LORD’s standard of measuring a man] abundantly,
16 To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand.
17 But he that glories, let him glory in [that he knows] the LORD [and that the only glory is His manifesting His presence alive in us].
18 For not he that commends himself is approved [proves nothing by faith in himself], but whom the LORD commends [by His glory manifested and presence revealed in him by Him].

Job 23
1 Then Job [God’s hated people] answered and said,
2 Even today is my complaint [words against the LORD are] bitter [mriy – in all its other {twenty-two} uses it’s rendered rebellion, rebels, or rebellious]: my stroke [yad – hand, here meaning a burden carried] is heavier than my groaning [than their words deserve].
3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his [mercy] seat!
4 I would order my cause before him [paniym – in His presence], and fill my mouth with arguments.
5 I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.
6 Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength [understanding] in me.
7 There the [self] righteous might dispute with him [trying to prove their ways are right]; so should I be delivered forever from [the trials and correction of the LORD] my judge.
8 Behold, [going their own ways] I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive [biyn – understand] him:
9 On the left hand, where he does work, but I cannot behold him: he hides himself on the right hand, that I cannot see [ra’ah] him:
10 But he knows the way that I take: when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
11 My foot has held [followed in] his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined.
12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
13 But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desires, even that [uncovering the wicked and bringing salvation to the world] he does.
14 For he performs the thing that is appointed [choq – the appointed, decreed, time] for me: and many such things are with him.
15 Therefore am I troubled at his presence [paniym]: when I consider [biyn – understand], I am afraid of him.
16 For God makes my [hardened] heart soft, and the Almighty troubles me:
17 Because I was not cut off before [paniym – from His presence] the darkness [by their ignorance], neither has he covered the darkness from my face [paniym – neither has He kept their ignorance secret].

Job 24
1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
2 [Because] Some remove the landmarks [gbuwlah – the boundaries, the bounds the LORD set on the sons of Adam {Deuteronomy 32:8}, which the communists invaders removed {Isaiah 10:13}]; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof [ra’ah – as shepherds devouring the scattered flock]. [Isaiah 10:12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the LORD has performed his whole {body of} work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish {paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth} the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria {the communists}, and the glory of his high looks. 13 For he says, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds {gbuwlah} of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man: 14 And my hand has found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathered eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing {to rise into heaven}, or opened the mouth {as their LORD commands them}, or peeped.]
3 They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow’s ox for a pledge.
4 They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.
5 Behold, as wild asses in the desert [they all go their own way], go they forth to their [own] work; rising betimes [early] for a prey: the wilderness yields food for them and for their children.
6 They reap everyone his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.
7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing [no protection from the corrupt elements of the earth], that they have no covering in the cold.
8 They are wet with the showers of the mountains [the word of their corrupt governments of church and state], and embrace the [false] rock for want of a shelter.
9 They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.
10 They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;
11 Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst [without this word of God].
12 Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded cries out: yet God lays not folly to them [but gives the strength they need to recover themselves].
13 They are of those that rebel against the light [His understanding]; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
14 The murderer rising with the light [into everlasting contempt] kills the poor [those without power] and needy, and in the night is as a thief [making them ignorant and unaware they have come to kill, rob, and devour all].
15 The eye also of the adulterer [the unfaithful] waits for the twilight [the effects of ignorance to take hold], saying, No eye shall see me: and disguise his face [with the ashes {Strong’s #666 – ‘apher}, the effect, of the ruin of the earth].
16 In the dark [when ignorance covers the earth] they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime [even when we understand who they are]: they know not the light [they refuse to acknowledge this understanding].
17 For the morning [now when light has come] is to them even as the shadow of death [to bring ignorance a confusion against those who know them]: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death [cast by the wicked].
18 He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he behold not the way of the vineyards.
19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so does the grave those which have sinned [wandered away from the LORD’s understanding].
20 The womb shall forget him [they shall not pass into the light and life]; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered [zakar]; and wickedness shall be broken [shabar – uselessly splintered] as a tree.
21 He evil entreats the barren that bears not: and does not good to the widow.
22 He draws also the mighty with his power: he rises up, and no man is sure of life.
23 Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he rests; yet his eyes are upon their ways.
24 They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.
25 And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth?

Isaiah 10
15 Shall the axe [the communists I sent to hew down the upright trees in power] boast itself against him [the LORD] that hews therewith? or shall the saw [who cuts these men into pieces I can use to rebuild] magnify itself against him that shakes it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no [dead] wood [to be used by me for My purposes].
16 Therefore shall the LORD, the LORD of hosts [a man of war], send among his fat ones [who before prospered under His rule] leanness; and under his glory [manifesting His presence] he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.
17 And the light [understanding] of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns [misleaders] and his briers [deceivers] in one day [when this understanding covers the earth];
18 And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standard-bearer [showing the way] faints [macac – melts away as described in Zechariah 14:12 and 2 Peter 3:10 & 12 when the stoicheion, the corrupt “elements,” melt way in the fires these men’s words and ways have caused.].
19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.
20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped [pleytah] of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay [sha’an – rely] upon him that smote [nakah – who with lies and misleading made them blind and dumb] them; but shall stay [sha’an – rely] upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
22 For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption [killayown – only used one other time: Deuteronomy 28:65, where it’s rendered “failing” of eyes; as in what these men say they’ve seen, as in Zachariah 14:12 – see below] decreed [charats – this the end of the war desolation, when the full body of this anointing is poured out {Daniel 9:26 & 27}, when the LORD indignation is accomplished {Daniel 11:36}, the consumption upon the whole earth {Isaiah 28:22}, and in Job 14:5 saying “Seeing his {man’s} days are determined {charats}, the number of his months are with you {LORD}, you have appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;”] shall overflow with righteousness.
23 For the LORD God of hosts shall make a consumption [kalah], even determined [charats], in the midst of all the land.
24 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian [the communists in power]: he shall smite [nakah] you with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt [oppressors who held you in hard bondage].
25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation [za’am] shall cease [kalah], and my anger in their destruction.
26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb [those whose power is to cover the world in darkness, causing endless strife among God’s people]: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt [these words shall cover, giving understanding to all, and overthrow the wicked in power].
27 And it shall come to pass in that day [when this light of the LORD has come], that his [the wicked’s] burden [the ignorance and mass confusion they’ve caused] shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke [joining you with them by consent] from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of [paniym – manifesting the LORD’s presence by] the anointing [of the king].
28 He is come to Aiath [Ai – the heap of ruin], he is passed to Migron [the precipice]; at Michmash [where they have hidden] he has laid up his carriages:
29 They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba [in their high place]; Ramah [and the high place] is afraid; Gibeah [where the consequences come – as in Judges 19] of Saul is fled.
30 Lift up your voice, O daughter of Gallim [who they’ve divided and scattered, to whom these waters now come]: cause it to be heard unto Laish [the lion – their strength, as Ariel, where judgment is perverted], O poor Anathoth [your prayers have been answered].
31 Madmenah [the dung hill, the burning trash heap, their hell] is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim [the keepers of the idols, their corrupt words] gather themselves to flee.
32 As yet shall he remain at Nob [his fruit and his high places] that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
33 Behold, the LORD [‘adown – the King of God’s people], the LORD [Jehovah] of hosts [who is manifested in His man of war], shall lop [cut off] the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled.
34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon [their false standard of purity in high places] shall fall by a mighty one.

Zechariah 14
1 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, and your spoil shall be divided in the midst of you.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And you shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal [unto sanctification]: yea, you shall flee, like as you fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah [the strength of Jehovah] king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints [the former sea] with you [the latter sea].
6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light [understanding] shall not be clear, nor dark [these messages are heard but not yet fully understood]:
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light [into the darkness of ignorance and confusion the LORD comes with understanding].
8 And it shall be in that day, that [these] living waters shall go out from [Heavenly New] Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem [all the high places, and their fruit, shall be brought down by the peace that flows from His right hand]: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate [the entryway taught by the right hand of the LORD] unto the place of the first gate [the place where the light is first seen], unto the corner gate [and turning to Him {the LORD} they shall enter], and from the tower [where is seen the evidence of the price paid to redeem the earth: the field] of Hananeel [those who God has favored] unto the king’s winepresses.
11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem [the peace He is teaching]; Their [works of the] flesh shall consume [maqaq] away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes [what they say they’ve seen and understand] shall consume [maqaq] away in their holes, and their tongue [their word against the LORD] shall consume [maqaq] away in their mouth. [Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints, 15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.]
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor.
14 And Judah [the elect remnant – the saints who have come with the LORD] also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen [those who haven’t known the LORD] round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance [the things they thought were valuable but are actually the burdens and plagues]
15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague [the defeat of all those who carry {teach and preach} these burdens].
16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto [Heavenly New] Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt [the houses of oppression] go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles [who come not out of these houses of oppression – to the harvest].
19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt [the oppressors who put heavy burdens on God’s people], and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses [this shall be the shade in the day, that replaces the plague of the burdens upon the horses], Holiness Unto The LORD; and the pots [filled with these living waters that have flowed from Him] in the LORD’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
21 Yea, every pot in [Heavenly New] Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto [pure, to be delivered in the form it was received from] the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite [those who {conspicuously} hate their brother, because upon him is the righteousness that pleases the LORD] in the house of the LORD of hosts.

The word maqaq, only used seven other times, meaning “to melt; figuratively, to flow, dwindle, vanish,” very descriptively appears in the following passages.

Leviticus 26
36 And upon them that are left alive [in animated dead flesh] of you I will send a faintness [morek – only appearing here, telling of softening their hardened hearts: minds] into their hearts [their minds failing] in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf [the LORD’s Spirit moving unseen and unknown] shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword [this word from My mouth]; and they shall fall when none pursues.
37 And they shall fall one upon another [upon the stumbling block of their hardened minds], as it were before a sword, when none pursues: and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies.
38 And you shall perish among the heathen [who haven’t known me, as in the generation that no longer remembered Joseph], and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
39 And they that are left of you shall pine away [maqaq] in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away [maqaq] with them.
40 If they shall [soften their hardened minds, and] confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary [griy – with hostility] unto me;
41 And that I also have walked contrary [griy] unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts [their mind without spiritual discernment] be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment [correction] of their iniquity:
42 Then will I remember [zakar] my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember [zakar]; and I will remember [zakar] the land [‘erets – the earth].

Isaiah 34
1 Come near, you nations [who’ve refused to know the LORD, who’ve refused] to hear [shama’ – obey]; and hearken, you people: let the earth hear [shama’ – obey], and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
2 For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations [the ignorant who continue with their own evil words and ways], and his fury upon all their armies [the liers and deceivers under the command of the communists: pope and presidents]: he has utterly destroyed them, he has delivered them to the slaughter [their own words have destroyed them, showing them to be the maliciously insane: ruling by evil decrees that are no longer followed].
3 Their slain also shall be cast out [shalak – thrown out {into the light}], and their stink shall come up [‘alah] out of their carcasses [the shall be perceived to be the dead awakened to everlasting contempt], and the mountains [their positions of power, institutions which are the seats of deception and evil misleading] shall be melted [macac] with their blood.
4 And all the host of heaven [the enemy armies occupying the places where understanding should be found] shall be dissolved [maqaq], and the [old and corrupt] heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falls off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea [Edom, Esau, the enemies mixed among us as neighbors, claiming we at peace with while they war against us, our God, and His sound mind: truth and reality] and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
6 The sword [this word] of the LORD is filled with blood [draining away what animates their dead bodies], it is made fat with fatness [it has prospered], and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah [among His flock], and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea [destroying these enemies].
7 And the unicorns [the one horn, the united powers of confusion and demoralization: the cause of the mass delusions of the insane] shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust [the ruin of the earth under their control] made fat with fatness [their ruining has prospered and will prosper until it never rises again].
8 For it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion. [which was, “Who is better suited to rule the world?”]
9 And the streams [the words coming from them] thereof shall be turned into pitch [burning darkness], and the dust [the ruin] thereof into brimstone, and the land [‘erets – the earth] thereof shall become burning pitch [the flaming ruin of hell].
10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up forever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it [‘abar – none shall pass from there into life] forever and ever.

Isaiah 37
22 This is the word which the LORD has spoken concerning him [the communists]; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, has despised you, and laughed you to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you.
23 Whom have you reproached and blasphemed? and against whom have you exalted your voice, and lifted up your eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.
24 By your servants have you reproached the LORD, and have said, “By the multitude of my chariots [that carry the words and ways of confusion into the battle] am I come up to the height of the mountains [power over all the world], to the sides of Lebanon [where purity was once seen on high]; and I will cut down the tall cedars [the upright men] thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I [as a serpent] will enter into the height of his border [qets – their foretold end], and the forest of his Carmel [the LORD’s garden of Eden].
25 I have digged, and drunk water [understanding dark sayings]; and with the sole of my feet [traveling among them] have I dried up [censored] all the rivers of the besieged places.”
26 Have you not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that you shouldest be to lay waste defensed cities into ruinous heaps.
27 Therefore, their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
28 But I [the LORD] know your abode, and your going out, and your coming in, and your rage against me.
29 Because your rage against me, and your tumult, is come up into my ears, therefore will I put my hook in your nose, and my bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way by which you came.
30 And this shall be a sign unto you, You shall eat this year such as grows of itself [the result of the confusion you have sown]; and the second year that which springs of the same: and in the third year sow you, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof [which is now ripe, seen to be what it is, and now readied for My harvest].
31 And the remnant that is escaped [pleytah] of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:
32 For out of [Heavenly New] Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape [pleytah] out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.
33 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the king of Assyria [the communists now in power], He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.
34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, says the LORD.
35 For I will defend this city to save it for my own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.
36 Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote [nakah] in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning [when this light has come], behold [I saw], they were all dead corpses [animated flesh awakened to everlasting contempt].

Ezekiel 4
16 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break [shabar – see Job 24:20 above] the staff of bread [the whole body of the work of the communists] in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
17 That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with another, and consume away [maqaq] for their iniquity.

We know, from its uses in Isaiah 14 and Job 38, that shabar is speaking of the LORD destroying the work, the evil decrees, of the communists in power, and the confusion they’ve wrought.

Isaiah 14
3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear, and from the hard bondage wherein you were made to serve,
4 That you shall take up this proverb against the king of Babylon [the confusion that now rules over the world], and say, How has the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!
5 The LORD has broken [shabar] the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers.
6 He who smote [nakah] the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindered.
7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at you, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since you are laid down, no feller is come up against us.
9 Hell from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming: it stirs up the dead for you, even all the chief ones [the powers] of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations [into everlasting contempt].

24 The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
25 That I will break [shabar] the Assyrian [the communists] in my land [‘erets – MY earth], and upon my mountains [governments] tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.
26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.
27 For the LORD of hosts [a man of war] has purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?
28 In the year that king Ahaz [who now holds God’s people captive] died was this burden.
29 Rejoice not you, whole Palestina [the enemy army mixed among us, who are now seen in plain sight], because the rod of him [the communists] that smote [nakah] you is broken [shabar]: for out of the serpent’s [dead] root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent [saraph – they have no idea that their work has brought forth the LORD, whose word is now exalted].

As we know, the word saraph only appears a few (six) other times. The first of these are in Numbers 21:6 & 8, as we told of when Moses lifted (exalted) the fiery serpent (saraph) on a pole (flying it as a banner). This occurred when the people spoke against God, as serpents (saraph) mixed among them in their camp, which (words) were biting and killing (the minds of) those bitten. The LORD commanded Moses to lift the fiery serpent on a pole (nec), and if they were bitten (by the serpents among them opposing the word of God), all who looked to it would live.

We also know the LORD says, in John 3:14 – 21, “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation [krisis – the self-condemning decision], that light [understanding] is come into the world, and men loved darkness [ignorance] rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”

Numbers 21
8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make you a fiery serpent [saraph], and set it upon a pole [nec]: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looks upon it, shall live.

Job 38
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 knowest? or who has stretched the line upon it?
6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
7 When the morning stars sang together [when all God’s children sprang to life and spoke His word as received], and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 Or who shut up the sea [humanity] with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
9 When I made the cloud [where My understanding is held] the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddling-band [ignorance as a protective wrapping] for it,
10 And brake [shabar] up [the darkness] for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors [so no other would understand until I sent the One I chose],
11 And said, Hitherto shall you come, but no further: and here shall your proud waves [of the wicked] be stayed?
12 Have you commanded the morning [this light coming] since your days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth [ending the old and beginning the new], that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
14 It is turned as clay to the seal [my signature pressed into the earth]; and they stand as a garment [righteousness with which I protect My people from the corrupt elements of the world].
15 And from the wicked their light [this understanding] is withheld, and the high arm shall be broken [shabar].
16 Have you entered into the springs of the sea [these waters that give life to humanity]? or have you walked in search of the depth [below their surface]?
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 of the earth [when its ages end and begin again]? declare if you know it all.

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