Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in my anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:

26 – 27 December 2023

Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in my anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:

The LORD above, in Jeremiah 32:37, is speaking of Jerusalem, which He gave into captivity: His people’s minds held by the lies of false prophets, under the misleading of their kings and priests estranged from the LORD. It is back to a right state of mind, New Heavenly Jerusalem, He promises He’ll gather them again, by the correction spoken of in Hebrews 12, returned thereby to His one way, by exalting His one voice from His anointed.

Jeremiah 32
38 And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:
39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me forever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:
40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
41 Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.
42 For thus says the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.

Hebrews 11
1 Now faith is the substance [hupostasis – under-standing] of things hoped for, the evidence [elegcho, meaning proof, or conviction] of things not seen.

The final two verses of Jeremiah 32 say, “43 And fields shall be bought in this land, whereof you say, It is desolate without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans {those using deception to manipulate and control those ignorant of their devices}. 44 Men shall buy fields for money {pay the necessary price to redeem the world from these men’s control}, and subscribe {kathar – write} evidences, and seal {chatham} them, and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin {this last born generation, who become the Father’s right hand, by faith, receiving His correction and becoming His children, who were be before not His people, to which He now says, “You are My people”}, and in the places about Jerusalem {taught the One way to sustainable peace, teaching, correction, that flows directly from the Father}, and in the cities of Judah {among My elect remnant who by faith return to Me }, and in the cities of the mountains {where I am establishing My New Heavenly governments], and in the cities of the valley {with those who’ve humbled themselves to receive His correction}, and in the cities of the south {where My power is manifested to those looking to and obeying the light}: for I will cause their captivity {of there minds, in New Heavenly Jerusalem} to return, says the LORD.”

Hebrews 11
2 For by it [faith in what is heard and not yet seen] the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen [by the faithful who were in darkness] were not made of things which do appear [when understanding has come].
4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaks.
5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise [the promised end, the better thing God prepared for us, that these faithful witnesses obeyed and spoke, as He commanded, that they without us, our speaking by the same faith, would not reach]:
10 For he looked for a city [New Heavenly Jerusalem] which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
11 Through faith also Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off [in this appointed time the LORD long ago decreed], and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth [journeying toward this moment, when death is swallowed up in victory].
14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 But now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly [New Jerusalem]: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he has prepared for them a city.

The five times used Greek word hupostasis, above rendered “substance,” literally from words meaning under and standing, is elsewhere twice rendered “confidence,” and once each as “confident” and “person.” In all its uses, it speaks of the ONE in which we have faith by under-standing: our “confidence” knowing His voice heard from the “person” “confident” in the LORD speaking through Him, as I Am confident, and boast of Him as I ought.

2 Corinthians 9
1 For as touching the ministering to the saints [in the original text this says – Touching {peri} truly for the ministering to the saints], it is superfluous [perissos – touching the living, because of this superabundance of this dispensation the LORD has committed into my hand] for me to write to you:
2 For I know the forwardness of your mind [prothumia – the readiness of your mind; you are those for whom it is intended, God having prepared a better end for us], for which I boast [kauchaomai] of [the LORD’s work in] you to them of Macedonia [the houses of dead flesh, those led there by false preachers and teachers], that Achaia was [those who realized they are in the tribulation, were] ready [paraskeuazo – fully furnished for good works] a year ago; and your zeal [zelos – heat, the fire kindled in you by the LORD’s work] has provoked [erethizo – stimulated, awakened to contend for the faith] very many.
3 Yet have I sent the brethren [those still sleeping among us], lest our boasting [kauchema – of the LORD’s work] of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, you may be ready [paraskeuazo]:
4 Lest haply if they of Macedonia [of the houses of dead flesh, who remain asleep] come with me, and find you unprepared [aparasheuastos – unready for this work of God awakening them through you], we (that we say not, you [because I may be among the dead who will come to life by the obedience of those the LORD prepares and brings with Him]) should be ashamed [not reaching the end promised] in this same confident [hupostasis – faith in the inner person, the substance of things hoped for] boasting [kauchesis – rejoicing in the LORD].
5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort [parakaleo – call along side, as the Comforter in me, the LORD yet unknown working and speaking to] the brethren, that they would go before [proerchomai – before through utterance] unto you, and make up beforehand [prokatartizo – only appearing here, meaning to be prepared in advance] your bounty [eulogia – by the LORD’s good words], whereof you had notice before [prokataggello – by which He is announced in advance], that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty [eulogia – the LORD’s good words], and not as of covetousness [pleonexia – not of “feigned words {to} make merchandise of you.”].
6 But this I say, He which sows [this word of God] sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully [eulogia] shall reap also bountifully [eulogia].
7 Every man according as he purpose in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver [who joyfully gives His word as received].
8 And God is able to make all grace [all the benefits of blessing others with His gift] abound toward you; that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
9 (As it is written, He has dispersed abroad; he has given to the poor: his righteousness remains forever. [Quoted from Psalms 112:9, which speaks of this as how the desire of the wicked shall perish.]
10 Now he that ministers seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
11 Being enriched in every [good] thing to all bountifulness, which causes through us thanksgiving to God.
12 For the administration of this service not only supplies the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;
13 Whiles by the experiment [dokime – the proof in the experience] of this ministration they glorify God for your professed [homologia – His same good words] subjection [hupotage – your subjection, obedience] unto [delivering] the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution [of the gift He has freely given us, to be given as received] unto them, and unto all men;
14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace [this gift] of God in you.
15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

2 Corinthians 11
10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting [of the LORD] in the regions of Achaia [this place of tribulation].
11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knows.
12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we [as men in whom a spirit is working and speaking: the LORD in us and Satan resisting Him in them].
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the [false] apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light [claiming the darkness in him is understanding].
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be [darkness in hell] according to their works.
16 I say again, let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little.
17 That which I speak, I speak it not after the LORD, but as it were foolishly [mocking the foolish], in this confidence [hupostasis – understanding] of boasting [I in the LORD and them in Satan].
18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh [men trusting in men], I will glory also.
19 For you suffer fools gladly, seeing you yourselves are wise.
20 For you suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.
21 I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also.
22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.
23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more [Christ truly in me]; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

Without foolishness, I therefore conclude:

30 If I must need glory, I will glory of the things which concern my infirmities [my weaknesses proving the power in me is Christ’s alone].
31 The God and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knows that I lie not.

Hebrews 1
1 God, who at sundry times [polumeros – only appearing here, meaning “in many portions, i.e. variously as to time and agency (piecemeal)”] and in divers manners [polutropos – also only here, meaning, “in many ways, i.e. variously as to method or form.”] spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Has in these last days spoken [the LORD speaking here and now] unto us by his Son, whom he has appointed heir of all things [spoken by the many prophets, meant to be perfected as the better thing the Father has prepared for us], by whom also he made the worlds [the old, upon whose ruin He created the current age now ending in total corruption, and is in like manner making the New];
3 Who being the brightness [the understanding of His glory: His manifested presence], and the express image [charakter – the exact copy, “character”] of his person [hupostasis – understanding], and upholding all things by the word [carrying the full load of the light] of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high [until now when He again stands with us, in us]:
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name [identity] than they.

Hebrews 3
14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence [hupostasis – person and substance] steadfast unto the end;
15 While it is said, Today if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?
18 And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief [a lack of faith in what they heard, thereby not allowing the word to touch and change them, and they, therefore, without understanding, remaining corrupted, wouldn’t obey].

Hebrews 1
8 But unto the Son he says, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
10 And, You, LORD, in the beginning have laid the foundation [themelioo] of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands:
11 They shall perish; but you remain; and they all shall wax old as does a garment;
12 And as a vesture shall you fold them up, and they shall be changed [allasso]: but you are the same, and your years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister [this same word] for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

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

Hebrews 12
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses [sent to minster this word], let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not you the chastening of the LORD, nor faint when you are rebuked of him:
6 For whom the LORD loves he chastens [corrects out of corruption], and scourges every son whom he receives.
7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chastens not?
8 But if you be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are you bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

22 But you [who are the Father’s children by His correction] are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the [New] Heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels [messengers He sends to minister His message to the heirs of His promised Salvation],
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.
25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven [the throne of God with His full understanding]:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made [by men], that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably [as His ministers] with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

When Hebrews 3:15 above speaks of hearing the LORD’s voice to day, to give His light to the world, it’s quoted from Psalms 95:7 & 8, which, along with Psalms 96, are exhortations to sing the new song. The newness is a reference to the new covenant, as the LORD describes it in Jeremiah 31:31 – 34, when He’s written it newly into our minds. The call to hear it is to obey (shama’) it as His voice heard, which we’re told to make known to be His presence manifested.

Jeremiah 31
31 Behold, the days come, the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was a husband unto them, says the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me [when My voice is heard as Mine], from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Psalms 95
1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD [repeating these words with Him]: let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation [from Whom this word flows].
2 Let us come before his presence [paniym] with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before [paniym – in the presence of] the LORD our maker.
7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day [enter the light of His understanding] if you will hear [shama’ – obey] his voice,
8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation [when you doubted My presence, even as this water flowed from the Rock in your presence], and as in the day of temptation [when the light was present, yet you doubted this voice was My presence manifested among you] in the wilderness:
9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart [their corrupt foundational understanding], and they have not known my ways:
11 Unto whom I swore in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

This “rest” is from the twenty-one times used Hebrew word mnuwchah, the same word that appears in Isaiah 28:12, when the LORD is teaching, as here, precept upon precept, line upon line. It’s when the only vexation is to understand the “report,” from the words shmuw’ah, which speaks of hearing the voice as Jehovah’s and, as such, obeying Him.

Isaiah 28 [as in the previous post]
5 In that day shall the LORD [Jehovah] of hosts [manifested in His man of war] be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem [tsphiyrah – a crowning as the mourning] of beauty, unto the residue [sh’ar – the elect remnant spoken of in Isaiah 10] of his people,
6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.
7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine [shmuw’ah – hearing the voice of Jehovah – the rumor of Ezekiel 7:26]? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts [who now draw from the Ancient of days].
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak [truth they don’t understand] to this people.
12 To whom he said, This is the rest [mnuwchah – resting place, in heaven, in the LORD’s presence, in full understanding] wherewith you may cause the weary to rest [nuwach – noah, the rest at the end reached]; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
13 But the word of the LORD [Jehovah] was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD [Jehovah], you scornful men [mockers and blasphemers vilifying this word and work of God: in and through the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost the world doesn’t know], that [without justice] rule this people which is in [New Heavenly] Jerusalem.
15 Because you have [ignorantly] said, We have made a covenant with death [maveth], and with hell [sheol – the habitation of the dead] are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus says the LORD GOD [‘Adonay Jehovih – KING of kings and LORD of lords], Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death [maveth] shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell [sheol] shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [shmuw’ah – the sound doctrine, teaching, and the rumor of Ezekiel 7:26, which is the voice of Jehovah heard].
20 For the bed is shorter than that a [sleeping] man can stretch himself on it: and the covering [the lies and falsehoods under which they hide is] narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
21 For the LORD [Jehovah] shall rise up as in mount Perazim [2 Samuel 5:20 – as water from His throne, breaking forth upon His and David’s enemies], he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon [Joshua 10:10 & 11 – His word reserved {frozen} in heaven, sent as great hailstones upon the wicked: the current corrupt crop sitting in power], that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange [known to no one except Him] act.
22 Now therefore be you not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the LORD GOD [‘Adonay Jehovih – KING of kings and LORD of lords], of hosts [a man of war and Commander, Chief, of the armies of heaven] a consumption [kalah – a full end, as in Daniel 9:27], even determined [charats – decreed, as in Joshua 10:21 saying “And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua {Jesus} at Makkedah {as one flock under one shepherd} in peace: none moved {charats} his tongue against any of the children of Israel.” And 2 Samiel 5:24, the LORD there saying to David, “And let it be, when you hear {shama’ – obey} the sound {qowl – the voice} of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees {baka’, from which comes bkowr – telling us this is the voice of the “firstborn”}, that then you shall bestir yourself: for then shall the LORD go out before {paniym – His presence will be manifested with, in} you, to smite the host of the Philistines {the enemy army now mixed among you}.”] upon the whole earth.
23 Give you ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.

Psalms 96
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song [His words now written into our minds]: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; show forth his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
6 Honor and majesty are before him [paniym – in His presence]: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7 Give unto the LORD, O you kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him [paniym – in His presence], all the earth.
10 Say among the heathen [those who haven’t known Him] that the LORD reigns: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13 Before [paniym – in the presence of] the LORD: for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

The word rendered “new” in the first verse (Psalms 96:1) above is chadash, meaning “new:–fresh, new thing.” It is not only used, as above, telling of the “new” covenant and the “new” song, but also elsewhere of the “new” (sentient – fully aware, jailbreaked, escaped from darkness into the light: overcoming the imposed limitations that kept man ignorant and thereby disabled) mind of man, and also of the “new” heaven and earth, by this, created.

Isaiah 43
1 But now thus says the LORD that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you [paid the price to bring you out of darkness], I have called you by your name; you are mine.
2 When you pass [‘abar – passing over from death into new life] through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire [here in death and hell], you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.
3 For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior: I gave [to My sword] Egypt [your oppressors] for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba [the waters of darkness they gave you to drink] for you.
4 Since you were precious in my sight, you have been honorable, and I have loved you: therefore will I give [to my sword] men [I’ve hated] for you, and people for your life.
5 Fear not: for I am with you: I will bring your seed from the east [from where My light is first heard], and gather you from the west [all upon whom it will shine];
6 I will say to the north [the places of darkness], Give up; and to the south [where My power is revealed], Keep not back: bring my sons from far [rachowq – from those now ruling the world by their evil decrees], and my daughters from the ends of the earth [the end the old and corrupt and beginning the new];
7 Even every one that is called by my name [receiving my correction and becoming My children]: for I have created him [My children] for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes [and now see], and the deaf that have ears [and now hear].
9 Let all the nations [all who haven’t know Me] be gathered together, and let the people be assembled [into My ONE BODY]: who among them can declare this [who will speak these good tidings to the world in need], and show us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear [shama’ – obey], and say, It is truth.
10 You are my [great cloud of] witnesses, the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior.
12 I have declared [My presence among you], and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange god among you: therefore you are my witnesses, says the LORD, that I am God.
13 Yea, before the day [understanding] was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?
14 Thus says the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon [allowed all the world to fall under the rule of confusion], and have brought down all their nobles [who’ve led it there], and the Chaldeans [those who’ve used deception to manipulate and control the world into its now desolate state], whose cry is in the ships [their voices, evil decrees, are heard from all their corrupt institutions, by which they control all humanity].
15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.
16 Thus the LORD, which makes a way in the sea [for humanity to escape this evil time], and a path in the mighty waters [these words which are the way back to rest and refreshing: sustainable peace and security];
17 Which brings forth the chariot and horse [these ideas that are the strength that will carry you into this new state], the army and the power; they [all the wicked, who I hate] shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.
18 Remember you not the former things, neither consider the things of old [the corrupt ways that are now ending in the destruction of the wicked, who choose destruction].
19 Behold, I will do a new thing [chadash]; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness [the earth now in ruin], and rivers [of these living waters] in the desert.
20 The beast [men who’ve been without My Spirit] of the field shall honor me, the dragons and the owls [those who before hunted and devoured souls in the darkness]: because I give waters [this word] in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.
21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall [open their mouths and] show forth my praise.
22 But you have not called upon me, O Jacob; but you have been weary of me, O Israel.
23 You have not brought me the small cattle of your burnt offerings; neither have you honored me with your sacrifices. I have not caused you to serve with an offering, nor wearied you with incense.
24 You have bought me no sweet cane with money, neither have you filled me with the fat of your sacrifices: but you have made me to serve with your sins, you have wearied me with your iniquities.
25 I, even I, am he that blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and will not remember your sins.
26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare you [what you’ve learned], that you mayest be justified.
27 Your first father has sinned, and your teachers have transgressed against me.
28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

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

Isaiah 65
13 Therefore thus the LORD God, Behold, my servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but you [who’ve forsaken the LORD and joined with those He’s hated] shall be ashamed:
14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit [not hearing and obeying this word as the voice from the mouth of the LORD].
15 And you shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen [upon whom I’ve shown mercy, in this conversation at My mercy seat]: for the LORD God shall slay you, and call his servants by another name:
16 That he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that swears in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes.
17 For, behold, I create new [chadash] heavens and a new [chadash] earth: and the former [the old and corrupt] shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create [New Heavenly] Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And I will rejoice in [New Heavenly] Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

Jeremiah 31
16 Thus says the LORD; Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears: for your work shall be rewarded, says the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.
17 And there is hope in your end, says the LORD, that your children shall come again to their own border [this new beginning].
18 I have surely heard Ephraim [the people of God, upon whom this blessing has come] bemoaning himself thus: You have chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn you me, and I shall be turned; for you are the LORD my God.
19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.
20 Is Ephraim my dear son [this generation I have corrected]? is he a pleasant child? for since I spoke against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, says the LORD.
21 Set you up waymarks [showing the way of the LORD], make you high heaps: set your heart toward the highway, even the way which you went: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities.
22 How long will you go about, O you backsliding daughter? for the LORD has created a new thing [chadash] in the earth, A woman shall compass [turn to] a man [of war].
23 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The LORD bless you, O habitation of justice, and mountain of holiness.

Ezekiel 36
22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus says the LORD God; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for my holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the heathen, whither you went.
23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, says the LORD God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new [chadash] heart also will I give you, and a new [chadash] spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.
29 I will also save you from all your uncleanness: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that you shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
31 Then shall you remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
32 Not for your sakes do I this, says the LORD God, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
33 Thus says the LORD God; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes [upon the ruin of the old earth] shall be built.
34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
37 Thus says the LORD God; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
38 As the holy flock, as the flock of [New Heavenly] Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

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