All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

28 – 29 December 2023

All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

Friends, the world is filled with the voices of those leading any who’ll follow. In the church and state, these men say they know the way, know God, and call themselves masters of truth. Not one will dare say they have no understanding of their own and are instead vessels in which He (the Father) lives, speaking and working His will, revealing Himself in the secret places reserved for Him. When the LORD calls all these men, here and now, “thieves and robbers,” He speaks of His flock and His position, which these men steal away into scattered destruction.

John 10
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Truly, truly, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep.
13 The hireling flees, because he is an hireling, and cares not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knows me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore does my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews [God’s people who claim they know Him, while not recognizing His presence, because they are the thieves and robbers who came before Him] for these sayings.
20 And many of them said, He has a devil, and is mad; why hear you him?
21 Others said, These are not the words of him that has a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

Father, speak to us as Only You can, opening blind eyes.

In the verses before the above, the LORD speaks a “parable,” which (parables) are the secret places He reserves revelation of Himself, as the door the Father opens, letting in the faithful who trust in Him (One Shepherd) and not in themselves (or the thieves and robbers who’ve come before).

John 10
1 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that enters not by the door [Christ alive in me] into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way [of their own], the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that enters in by the door [telling you plainly it is Father alive in me speaking and doing His work] is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter [the door keepers] opens; and the sheep hear his [the Father’s] voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name [calling them His children by receiving Him], and leadeth them out [of the houses of darkness, from among the thieves and robbers].
4 And when he puts forth his own sheep [in them revealing Himself to the world], he goes before them [bearing the necessary cross that comes with declaring the LORD is risen in us, manifesting His presence], and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice [is the voice of the Father alive in him].
5 And a stranger [preaching and teaching some other way] will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spoke Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spoke unto them.

The word, in verse 6 above, rendered “parable” is the five times used Greek word paroimai, said to mean, “from a compound of 3844 [para – nearness] and perhaps a derivative of 3633 [oimai]; apparently a state alongside of supposition, i.e. (concretely) an adage; specially, an enigmatical or fictitious illustration:–parable, proverb.”

The only other times it (paroimai) is used are three times in John 16 by the LORD and once by Peter in 2 Peter 2:22.

John 16
19 Now Jesus [Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh of His perpetual son] knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do you enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while [when you are scattered by the thieves and robber who’ve come before me], and you shall not see me: and again, a little while, and you shall see me [when I have removed your blindness]?
20 Truly, truly, I say unto you, That you shall weep and lament [thinking I Am not with you], but the world shall rejoice [thinking I Am dead]: and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy [when I reveal myself in alive here among the dead in hell, taking up my life again, as the Father gave me power].
21 A woman when she is in travail has sorrow, because her hour is come [to bring forth the firstborn]: but as soon as she is [God’s people are] delivered of the child, she remembers no more the anguish, for joy that a man [the second Adam] is born into the world.
22 And you now therefore have sorrow [not seeing me]: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy [realizing the LORD is with us, alive in His ONE BODY] no man takes from you.
23 And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Truly, truly, I say unto you, Whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name [in the identity of Christ alive in us: His ONE BODY], he will give it you.
24 Hitherto have you asked nothing in my name [Jehovah’s Salvation, Jesus manifested in our flesh]: ask, and you shall receive, that your joy [realizing He is with us, is] may be full [Christ all in all].
25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs [paroimai – bringing this state of mind near to you]: but the time comes, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs [paroimai], but I shall show you plainly of the Father [alive in me first, and realizing He is alive in those who receive Him at His presence manifest near us].
26 At that day you shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
27 For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out [I Am born] from God.
28 I came forth [Am born] from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world [will not be seen by it, when the darkness comes by the works of thieves and robbers], and go to the Father.
29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speak you plainly [and right], and speak no proverb [paroimai].
30 Now are we sure that you know all things, and need not that any man should ask you: by this we believe that you came forth from God.
31 Jesus answered them, Do you now believe?
32 Behold, the hour comes, yea, is now come, that you shall be scattered [by thieves and robbers], every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is [always alive] with me [called the Holy Ghost, the Paraclete, working and speaking unknown in the world’s blindness: cultivated ignorance].
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in [believing and seeing] me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome [the blindness of] the world.

2 Peter 1
11 For so an entrance [eisodos – into the kingdom of God] shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you know them, and be established in the present truth.
13 Yea, I think it meet [appropriate], as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our LORD Jesus Christ has shown me.
15 Moreover I will endeavor that you may be able after my decease [exodos – after leaving the old body {come to remembrance and out of the old body, which shall not remain}] to have these things always in remembrance.
16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our LORD Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased [HEAR, Obey, Him].
18 And this voice which came from heaven [when we received full understanding] we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star [phosphoros] arise in your hearts:
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation [by men presuming things, preaching and teaching their opinions as truth, saying God said, when He hasn’t said anything to them, other than what He says to all here and now].
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost [the LORD in them, unknown to the world and working all things toward this moment of awakening by His righteous interpretation].

2 Peter 2
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be [are many] false teachers among you, who privily [secretly, from their own imaginations, create lies] shall bring in damnable [apoleia – that cause them and those who follow their ways to perish] heresies, even denying the LORD that bought them [with this price], and bring upon themselves swift destruction [apoleia – perdition].
2 And many shall follow their pernicious [aploeia – the ways that lead to their own destruction] ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of [as it is this day].
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned [fraudulent] words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingers not, and their damnation [apoleia – perishing, perdition] slumbers not [because they are awakened “to shame and everlasting contempt”].

17 These are wells without water [without this true word from the mouth of God the Father], clouds [saying in them there is understanding] that are carried with a tempest [the winds of their own false doctrines]; to whom the mist of darkness [ignorance] is reserved forever.
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped [when the LORD was still with them] from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty [saying they know the way], they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome [by the thieves and robbers who’ve come before me], of the same is he brought in bondage [to serve their corrupt ways and ideas].
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions [blinding corruption] of the world through the knowledge of the LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment [here and now] delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb [paroimai], The dog is turned to his own vomit again [barking in the darkness, after eating again their own vomit]; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire [the waters they muddied, clouded so nothing is clear, with the own feet].

2 Peter 3
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God [this same word of God] the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition [apoleia] of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements [stoicheion – the corrupt foundational ideas and ways of men] shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements [stoicheion] shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our LORD is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrestle, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction [apoleia – perdition].

The word (3633) oimai (oiomai), compounded with para (nearness) into the word paroimai, is only used three times, and means “to make like (oneself), i.e. imagine (be of the opinion):–suppose, think.”

When Peter (the LORD in him) says, in 2 Peter 1:16, we have not followed “cunningly devised” fables, it is from the twice used Greek word sophizo, (somewhat dubiously) said to mean “to render wise; in a sinister acceptation, to form “sophisms”, i.e. continue plausible error:–cunningly devised, make wise.”

It (sophizo) is a derivative of the word sophos, meaning wise, from saphes, meaning clear. It (sophizo, as used by Peter) is speaking of wise men devising fables (muthos – myths), which he says hasn’t happened and isn’t what we’ve followed. Instead, he describes men moved by a higher intellect interacting with their minds, inspiriting them, to write what exemplifies, without a doubt, the greatest feat of engineering (the creation of man’s mind, the written word, and the means of secure connection – communication, communion, with God) ever created, and of which man, experiencing it, only periodically intellectually touches the surface. It is this understanding, the magnitude of this reality, that is now, also without a doubt, becoming realized and will forever alter human future positively: into a more abundant life. (Reread the previous post in this context.)

The only other time sophizo appears is in 2 Timothy 3:15 where it is rendered “wise,” speaking of all scripture being inspired by God, saying it is cunningly devised (engineered) “unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus [believing Jehovah’s Salvation is manifested in the flesh of those to and through whom He thereby makes known His will].”

2 Timothy 3
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue you in the things which you have learned and have been assured of [knowing them, without a doubt, understanding by the experience], knowing of whom [the Father alive in me] you have learned them;
15 And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise [sophizo – the masterpiece of His engineering] unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration [direct connection] of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man [born of] of God [one of only two times this title is used in the New Testament, both of Timothy] may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

James 1
1 James [Jacob], a servant of God and of the LORD Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes [all my children] which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy [a chance to be strengthened in the realization of the LORD’s presence manifested with us, in us] when you fall into divers temptations [situations that attempt to create doubt in His presence];
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience [which, in waiting, the LORD will appear to those who don’t doubt Him].
4 But let patience have her perfect work [when all we believe come into accord with what appears], that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraids not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith [not doubting], nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the LORD.
8 A double minded man [believing one moment and doubting the next] is unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted [by the LORD manifesting His presence to, in, the lowely]:
10 But the rich, in that he is made low [receiving nothing if he trusts in worldly riches]: because as the flower of the grass he shall [in doing] pass away.
11 For the sun [this great light] is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the grass [men trusting in man], and the flower [worldly value] thereof falls, and the grace of the fashion of it perishes: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endures temptation [when he is tempted to doubt the LORD’s presence]: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life [full understanding], which the LORD has promised to them that love [agapao – giving these heavenly treasure, having unwavering faith they are from] him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil [misleading, damnable heresies, that cause doubt], neither tempts he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed [by worldly wealth and power].
15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights [understanding], with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures [now created in this new heaven and earth].
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear [Him speaking], slow to speak [your own understanding], slow to wrath [threatening those destroying themselves by following misleaders mixed among them tempting them]:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word [sent from the Father of lights, who alone reveals Himself], which is able to save your souls.
22 But be you doers of [as commanded, a giver giving] the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholds himself [is told who he is], and goes his way, and straightway forgets what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty [the freedom that comes with knowing the truth], and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work [giving this word of truth as received], this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridles not his tongue, but deceives his own heart [speaking words without understanding], this man’s religion is vain [worthless].
27 Pure [uncorrupted] religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit [manifesting the LORD’s presence as the Chief Overseer of the earth, to] the fatherless and widows [those without a man of war to protect them from evil] in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from [uncorrupted by] the world.

Hebrews 13
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you. [What part of this don’t you understand?]
6 So that we may boldly [without doubt] say, The LORD is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose [unwavering] faith follow [because it is the LORD in me speaking], considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines [men’s creations from their imaginations]. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace [this gift directly from the Father]; not with meats [the works of dead flesh], which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

Obadiah 1
1 The vision of Obadiah [the servant of Jehovah]. Thus says the LORD God concerning Edom [the enemies mixed among us at war with us]; We have heard a rumor [shmuw’ah – heard the voice] from the LORD, and an ambassador [tsiyr – the voice of Jehovah] is sent among the heathen [those who don’t know the LORD], Arise you, and let us rise up against her in battle.
2 Behold [see], I have made you [Jacob – God’s people still wrestling with Him and His voice from His messenger] small [qatan] among the heathen [those who don’t know me]: you are greatly despised.
3 The pride of your heart has deceived you, you that dwell in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high [all the place of teachers and leaders]; that says in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?
4 Though you exalt yourself as the eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars, thence will I bring you down, says the LORD.
5 If thieves came to you, if robbers by night, (how are you cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough? if the grape-gatherers came to you, would they not leave some grapes?
6 How are the things of Esau [the enemies among us in power] searched out! how are his hidden things sought up!
7 All the men of your confederacy [joining with communists and God haters] have brought you even to the border [this limit, your end]: the men that were at peace with you have deceived you, and prevailed against you; they that eat your bread have laid a wound under you: there is none understanding in him.
8 Shall I not in that day, says the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom [the enemies in power], and understanding out of the mount of Esau?
9 And your mighty men, O Teman [the places where understanding should be found], shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.
10 For your violence against your brother Jacob shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off forever.
11 In the day that you stood on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates [crossed our borders], and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even you were as one of them.
12 But you shouldest not have looked on the day of your brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest you have rejoiced over the children of Judah [the leaders of My people] in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest you have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
13 You shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, you shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;
14 Neither shouldest you have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest you have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.
15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head.
16 For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.
17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph [Ephraim] a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD has spoken it.
19 And they of the south [in whom My power is revealed] shall possess the mount of Esau; and they of the plain the Philistines [Palestinians – the enemy army now among us plainly seen]: and they [the men of the south] shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gilead [those who become My right hand shall possess this mountain of My testimony].
20 And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel [the LORD’s people, His army, returned to their right mind] shall possess that of the Canaanites [those zealously evil, fighting against God and His people], even unto Zarephath [when this is realized to be the refining fire]; and the captivity of [in which minds return to the LORD, in New Heavenly] Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad [among those who were before separated from Him], [and they] shall possess the cities of the south [where His power appears to those looking to His light].
21 And saviors [the ONE BODY of Christ] shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount [the rulers] of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’s.

The word, in verse 21 above, rendered “kingdom,” is the twenty-four times used Hebrew word mluwkah, said to be a “feminine passive participle of 4427; something ruled, i.e. a realm:–kingdom, king’s, X royal.” It is said to be from (4427) malak, meaning to reign, which we understand bears an affinity to mal’ak, meaning messenger or angel. It (mluwkah), with intention, speaks of the one (here above, the ONE BODY of Christ) under whom this reign occurs.

As a matter of engineering and communicating, we understand the word is from the Hebrew words ma luwts, and the Aramaic word kah: ma asking and describing “what;” luwts, meaning to speak, as to intercede with an interpretation, and kah, in context, only appearing one time, in Daniel 7:27, telling us it is the end of the matter.

Daniel 7
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth [Babylon, the world ruled into, and by, confusion caused by those who’ve governed it into this state with intentional lies, the destruction of reliable discourse, as policy], which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces [as it is this day, become without form and voice, and darkness covers the face of all deep understanding].
24 And the ten horns [complete corruption of all worldly government] out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them [Obama, and his idiot children: communists in church and state]; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings [destroying from within all three independent equal branches of our government].
25 And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times [zman] and laws [trying to create a new world built upon injustice and inequality]: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27 And the kingdom [milkuw] and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom [malkuw] under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom [malkuw] is an everlasting kingdom [malkuw], and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
28 Hitherto [‘ad kah – until like this] is the end of the matter [millah – meaning “a word, command, discourse, or subject;” the same word used above telling of the “great words” spoken again the Most High, evil decrees that have worn out His saints, but not Him]. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter [millah] in my heart [in my mind, and as inspirited, wrote it sealed into this book].

The word rendered time, three times in verse 25 above, is ‘iddian, meaning “a set time,” from ‘ed (the same as ‘ad, “until” in verse 28), speaking the periods during which these “matters” occur, ending with their correct interpretation here and now.

The word millah appears three other times in Daniel 12. The first, in verse 1, tells us this correct interpretation, the “sum” re’sh (meaning in his “head,” as full understanding into His mind) of the matter, which is what Daniel was shown (and was then told to seal into his written words).

Daniel 7
1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head [re’sh] upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum [re’sh] of the matters [millah].
2 Daniel spoke and said, I saw in my vision by night [how darkness came upon the earth], and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea [and man was given understanding from God].
3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings [spoke as the voice of God, with Him in heaven with the strength of His full understanding]: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked [and man’s strength over time deteriorated into darkness], and it was lifted up [and understand was removed] from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man [with a carnal mind lacking light, while, in their own conceit, thinking they were wise], and a man’s heart was given to it [and the minds of those in power became filled with darkness].

The next two (uses of millah) come, in verses 11 & 16, as we’re told these are the “words” (false interpretation: lies, false accusation, and evil decrees, that rule the world) of the horns, the darkened powers in church and state, and the right interpretation of these “things,” which Daniel received.

Daniel 7
8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days [the wisdom and understanding that created the first dominion] did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels [this understanding received, of the word of those who before understood, and, as commanded sent their word forward, to this moment of full understanding] as burning fire.
10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books [that were sealed until this time] were opened.
11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words [millah] which the horn spoke: I beheld even till the beast [Babylon – the confusion that has ruled while the word was sealed] was slain, and his [evil] body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
12 As concerning the rest of the beasts [all the power that, by rejection, remain without this Spirit of the LORD, light in which is life], they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for [‘ad – until] a season [zman] and time [‘iddian].
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven [with full understanding returned to the earth], and came to the Ancient of days [with full understanding, light of this new day, returned to the earth], and they brought him near before him [to His ONE BODY].
14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom [malkuw], that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom [malkuw] that which shall not be destroyed.
15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.
16 I came near unto one [the LORD’s Spirit communicating with me] of them that stood by [the Paraclete, sent with full understanding], and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things [millah].

The word mluwkah, speaking of the “kingdom” now again established, only appears five times in the major prophets, two of which are in Isaiah (34:12 & 62:3).

Isaiah 34
1 Come near, you nations, 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, and his fury upon all their armies: he has utterly destroyed them, he has delivered them to the slaughter.
3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcasses, and the mountains [all their governments] shall be melted with their blood.

8 For it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, and the year of recompense for the controversy of Zion [the controversy over who should rule God’s people: those destroying them or the One come to Save them from the destroyers].
9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch [their words turned into burning darkness: ignorance], and the dust thereof into brimstone [gophriyth], and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
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 forever and ever.
11 But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion [tohuw – without form], and the stones of emptiness [bohuw – a void].
12 They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom [mluwkah], but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.
13 And thorns [misleaders] shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles [misleaders, as if grown in an unattended garden] in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be a habitation of dragons [tan – beasts who devour with wide-open mouths], and a court for owls [those hunting souls in the darkness].

Isaiah 62
1 For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness [full understanding], and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burns [showing the way in the darkness].
2 And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory: and you shall be called by a new [chadash] name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
3 You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal [mluwkah] diadem in the hand of your God.

6 I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: you that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he makes [New Heavenly] Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

10 Go through, go through the gates [out of hell into heaven]; prepare you the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.
11 Behold, the LORD has proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say you to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and you shall be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

Psalms 110
1 The LORD [Jehovah] said unto my LORD [‘adown – the king He will establish], Sit you at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.
2 The LORD [Jehovah] shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion: rule you in the midst of your enemies.
3 Your people shall be willing in the day of your power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: you have the dew of your youth.
4 The LORD [Jehovah] has sworn, and will not repent, You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek [the king of righteousness, and king of peace].
5 The LORD [‘Adonay – the King of kings] at your right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads [ro’sh – those whose evil ideas and ways rule] over many countries [‘erets – over the earth].
7 He shall drink of the brook in the way [this word sent into this time, to be revealed, by which]: therefore, shall he lift up [ruwm – raise and exalt] the head [ro’sh – His righteous ideas and way].
