For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the LORD Jesus Christ:

10 – 13 January 2024

For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the LORD Jesus Christ:

As we know, the above speaks of the “conversation” in which the LORD manifests His presence to those fully expecting to find Him (there in it). The addition of “heaven,” describing this meeting place, tells us of the resulting understanding when hearing the voice as waters flowing from the Rock: the word of God from the mouth of His anointed (flesh in which He’s veiled until it, heaven, by obedient faith, is reached).

As we also know, because He’s shown us, the Hebrew word “heaven” is shamayim, which combines the words shama’ (to hear and to obey) and mayim (water).

The Greek word rendered “heaven” is ouranos, said to perhaps be from oros, “probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or “rear”; perhaps akin to 142; compare 3733); a mountain (as lifting itself above the plain).”

The use of the words “perhaps” and “probably” tells of the uncertainty of these definitions. As previously discussed, the words ouranos and oros are purportedly connected to the word airo (with affinity to aer: air, thoughts as spirits), meaning “to lift up; by implication, to take up or away; figuratively, to raise (the voice), keep in suspense (the mind), specially, to sail away (i.e. weigh anchor); by Hebraism (compare 5375) to expiate sin.”

The Greek word oura is a primary word meaning tail (as in what follows – a result), and nos, a shortened form of gnosis, means the act of knowing, i.e., knowledge received. In these words, this deep understanding of them, we realize heaven is the “result” of “receiving knowledge,” not to be mistaken with creating it in the imagination, which is at best opinion and (synonymously) at worst delusion.

The word rendered “conversation,” in the title verse (Philippians 3:20), is the once-used word politeuma, meaning “a community, i.e. (abstractly) citizenship (figuratively):–conversation.” It is speaking of communion (common union): here and now, the breaking of the bread (blood and body) of this word and work of Christ (Jehovah’s salvation manifested in the flesh of His anointed ONE BODY, the city of which we are citizens, in which He lives).

The word (politeuma; and its varying derivates) ultimately derive from the word polemos, “from pelomai (to bustle); warfare (literally or figuratively; a single encounter or a series):–battle, fight, war.”

It (polemos; with context from all these other words) is speaking of the necessary means of sustaining a (common union in a) community, constant warring through conversation, with the strength of God in those who put on His full armor, wherein and whereby He always prevails. This truth, now obvious in that He’s prevailed, is proven in the enemies’ only recourse, knowing they against it have no defense, is to silence it and attempt to make sure it never has free course again.

Ephesians 6
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand, therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the [this] word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints [those coming with this word against the ungodly];
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel [of Christ with us, in us],
20 For [huper – over, overseeing as He sees] which I am an ambassador [presbeuo] in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

The word presbeuo only appears elsewhere in 2 Corinthians 5:20, where the above-mentioned “bond” is described.

2 Corinthians 5
19 To wit [hos – as it is], that God was in Christ, reconciling [katallasso – to change] the world unto himself [to see as He sees], not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors [presbeuo] for [huper] Christ [Jehovah in us overseeing to give us His sight], as though [hos – as] God did beseech [parakaleo – Paraclete, leading into all truth] you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead [huper – as overseers seeing by His sight], be ye reconciled [katallasso – changed] to [see as] God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin [flesh lacking His understanding] for us [huper – to become our sight, overseeing], who knew no sin; that we might be made [become, by life, understanding, resurrected] the righteousness of God in him.

Exodus 15
…I will sing unto the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
2 The LORD is my strength and song [repeating His words with Him], and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host has he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea [cuwph yam – to roar {as in the word sha’own: the great noise heard, as “rushing” water of our warfare, against those warring against the LORD’s voice heard from the whirlwind, the cuwphah} with the rightly divided written word].
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths were congealed [the elements of deep understanding came together] in the heart of the sea [in the minds of all hearing Him].
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them.
13 You in your mercy have led forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength unto your holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear, and be afraid [ragaz]: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina [invaders – immigrants who refuse to assimilate, and instead war against us and our better culture of peace].
15 Then the dukes of Edom [the powerful, as enemies mixed among us to destroy us] shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab [whose mouths are the gates of hell], trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan [those zealous to destroy] shall melt away.
16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still as a stone; till your people pass over [‘abar – from death into life], O LORD, till the people pass over [‘abar – from death into life], which you have purchased.
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which you have made for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign forever and ever.
19 For the horse of Pharaoh [the great house] went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.
20 And Miriam [who was a rebel] the prophetess, the sister of Aaron [the bringer of the light], took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
21 And Miriam answered them, Sing you [these songs, this word sent to be repeated as received] to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
22 So Moses [drawn from the waters – from the ideas and ways of the oppressors] brought Israel [God’s people] from the Red [cuwph – the written word rightly divided] sea [yam – roaring], and they went out into the wilderness of Shur [the wall – that men built between God and man]; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah [bitter], they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD showed him a tree [of life], which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
26 And said, If you will diligently hearken [obey] to the voice of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I Am the LORD that heals you.
27 And they came to Elim [palms – the LORD’s presence heard in the sweetness {honey} of the words of His mouth], where were twelve wells of water [of living waters], and threescore and ten palm trees [God’s presence in His people who’ve received His word as His]: and they encamped there by the waters.

The roaring of the sea, the sound of many waters rushing, and the voice from the whirlwind are what Peter, in 2 Peter 3:10, calls a great noise (His Almighty Voice) when the LORD comes (unknown) as a thief in the night (when darkness, ignorance, covers the earth).

2 Peter 3
3 Knowing this first, that there shall [have] 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 [thinking He is delaying His presence]; but is [in fact here with us] longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance [be changed away from their straying].
10 But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night [unknown in this time when ignorance covers the world]; in the which the [old and corrupt understanding] heavens shall pass away with a great noise [rhoizedon – only appearing this once, from rheo or ereo and zedown, meaning to flow, utterance against the proud and aorrgant], 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 [unknown here with us] 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 [refusing this teaching] and unstable [as corrupt waters, as is Reuben, the pattern of the son of perdition, in Genesis 49:4, as Jacob tells his children what shall befall them in these last days {‘achariyth}] wrestle, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction [apoleia – perdition].

Isaiah 17
4 And in that day [this day] it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
5 And it shall be as when the harvestman gathers the corn, and reaps the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathers ears in the valley of Rephaim [rapha’ – when God’s people shall find rest and cure].
6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, says the LORD God of Israel.
7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker [the Creator, whose fruit is left in the uppermost branch, and only a few of the very elect receive Him], and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
8 And he shall not look to the [defiled] altars, the [corrupt] work of his hands [the creations of men], neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images [they put in My place and call by My name].
9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be [now total] desolation.
10 Because you have forgotten the God of your salvation, and have not been mindful of the rock [from where His ways of peace and security flow] of your strength [understanding], therefore shall you plant [your own creations as your] pleasant plants, and shall set it with strange slips [branches, those who are far from knowing me]:
11 In the day shall you make your plant to grow, and in the morning [when this understanding comes] shall you make your seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap [of ruin] in the day of grief and of desperate [‘anash] sorrow [now when following men’s ways make your wound incurable].
12 Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise [speak worthless words of the proud] like the noise of the seas [yam – the roaring, words of all people, as waves crashing against the shore, the end of the argument]; and to the rushing of nations [into the battle against the LORD they don’t know], that make a rushing [sha’ah – against the LORD] like the rushing of mighty waters [thinking their words can change the decreed end the LORD promised]!
13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off [merchaq – from the LORD’s decreed appointed time], and shall be chased as the chaff [worthless men in power] of the mountains before the wind [this Almighty Spirit of the LORD], and like a rolling thing [the wheel, this word sent to give understanding and life to those who receive it as My word] before [saved by My Presence manifested in] the whirlwind.
14 And behold at evening [understanding leaving] trouble; and before the morning [the coming of understanding] he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

The word rendered “rushing,” above in verses 12 twice and once in 13, is sha’own, meaning “uproar (as of rushing); by implication, destruction:–X horrible, noise, pomp, rushing, tumult (X -uous).”

The word rendered “noise,” twice in verse 12, is hamah, meaning “to make a loud sound like Engl. “hum”); by implication, to be in great commotion or tumult, to rage, war, moan, clamor.” I

These words speak of the war against this word of the LORD, and against truth in general.

The “whirlwind,” before which the wicked realize they have no defense and become like darkness chased away by His light, is the word cuwphah, meaning “a hurricane.” It’s from the (different) word cuwph, meaning “to snatch away, i.e. terminate:– consume, have an end, perish, x be utterly.” The letters ah added to the end tell us this end comes in Jehovah’s all-consuming fire, the word from His mouth as His sword (by which one is taken away, as in the days of Noah, by the flood now a fire, and the other left).

The first of the sixteen times (8+8, the news creation upon the ruin of the old) the word (cuwphah) appears, is in Number 21:14, where it is rendered “Red sea.” There, it speaks of it written in “the book of the wars of the LORD,” a reference to it, Him, here and now.

Numbers 21
10 And the children of Israel set forward [naca’ – started their journey], and pitched in [chanah – into the declining light] Oboth [carrying the written word of God with them].
11 And they journeyed [naca’] from Oboth, and pitched [chanah] at Ijeabarim [making crooked the way delivered to Abram], in the wilderness [midbar – desolating speech] which is before Moab [of men whose words are the gates of hell], toward the sunrising [toward the time, now, when this light has risen again].
12 From thence they removed [naca’], and pitched [chanah] in the valley [the torrent created by men’s words] of Zared [and they, men and their words, greatly increased].
13 From thence they removed [naca’], and pitched [chanah] on the other side [opposing God and their own beginning] of Arnon [brawling stream – now waring], which is in the wilderness that comes out of the coasts [until the end] of the Amorites [the sayers, those exalting there words above the word of God]: for Arnon [the brawling stream] is the border [gbuwl – the set boundary, the termination point] of Moab [the ever open mouths of men, the gates that hold the world in hell], between [sundering, by rightly identifying] Moab [the gates of hell] and the Amorites [as those exalting their word above the LORD’s].
14 Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars [milchamah – this warfare] of the LORD [Jehovah], What he did in the Red sea [cuwphah – by His voice heard from the whirlwind], and in the brooks of Arnon [this warfare at these brawling waters],
15 And at the stream of the brooks that goes down to the dwelling of Ar [His city he is building, His ONE BODY in which He dwells, which is New Heavenly Jerusalem, our destination reached], and lieth upon [sha’an – the fully expected end, in which we can trust because it is decreed by the LORD] the border [gbuwl – it is the boundary, the termination point] of Moab [of the gates holding all the world in death and hell].

Jeremiah 48
42 And Moab shall be destroyed from being a people, because he has magnified himself against the LORD.
43 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, shall be upon you, O inhabitant of Moab, says the LORD.
44 He that flees from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that gets up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring upon it, even upon Moab, the year of their visitation [pquddah – now when the LORD appears as the Chief Overseer of the earth], says the LORD.
45 They that fled stood under the shadow of Heshbon [what they have contrived] because of the force [because they were there powerless]: but a fire shall come forth out of Heshbon [their own contrivances], and a flame from the midst of Sihon [warriors upon whom this whirlwind has come], and shall devour the corner [mouth and ideas] of Moab, and the crown of the head of the tumultuous [the rushing] ones [who are warring against the LORD with their words].
46 Woe be unto you, O Moab [the gates of hell that will not prevail against those declaring the LORD is present in our flesh]! the people of Chemosh [the powerful who have subdued God’s people – the false gods of Moab] perish: for your sons are taken captives, and your daughters captives.
47 Yet will I bring again the captivity of Moab in the latter days [‘achariyth], says the LORD. Thus far is the judgment of Moab.

The Hebrew word translated as “tumultuous” in verse 45 above is sha’own, the same word below translated “noise” in Isaiah 25:5, a chapter speaking of the destruction of the defenced city, where is the palace of strangers. As we know, verse 8 of Isaiah 25 speaks of the resurrection of God’s people when the LORD swallows up death in victory.

Isaiah 25
1 O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2 For you have made of a city a heap; of a defensed city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify you, the city of the terrible nations shall fear you.
4 For you have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
5 You shall bring down the noise [sha’own – tumult caused by their word as rushing waters] of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.
6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war] make unto all people a feast [of His good words] of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
7 And he [the LORD] will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering [lowt] cast [lowt] over all people, and the vail [maccekah – most often rendered molten image; here meant to refer us to its definitive use in Isaiah 30:1] that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death [meveth] in victory; and the LORD God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD has spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab [the gates of hell: the open mouths of wicked men] shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim [dividing the waters, to stay above them]: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
12 And the fortress of the high fort of your walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.

Again, as often discussed, the termination point, ending the war in the LORD’s victory over death and hell, is spoken of by Paul as he quotes from verse 8 above in 1 Corinthians 15:54. He says it comes with the end of corruption when those hidden thereby have put on their immortality, which (corruption) is the vail and the cover cast over all the earth.

1 Corinthians 15
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural [flesh] body; it is [in the uncovering: the apocalypse] raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit [bringing the natural from death into life]. [“…now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: 11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles {those who haven’t known the LORD always among them}” 2 Timothy 1].
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the LORD from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed [allasso – reconciled, when we see our immortality as He sees],
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye [the epiphany, when we see as He sees], at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed [allasso – reconciled, seeing as He sees].
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

Proverbs 1
22 How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But you have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes;
27 When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction comes as a whirlwind [cuwphah – this termination point, as in the Red sea]; when distress [tsarah – tribulation] and anguish comes upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me [because I Am hidden in plain sight, veiled in flesh, unknowable to those who choose to remain ignorant]:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD [which is the beginning of wisdom]:
30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
33 But whoso hearkens [shama’ – obeys] unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Proverbs 10
25 As the whirlwind [cuwphah] passeth [‘abar – passing over, bringing from death to life those who from there hear Jehovah’s voice], so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting [‘owlam] foundation.
26 As vinegar [is destructive] to the teeth, and as smoke [is blinding] to the eyes, so is the sluggard [refusing to work] to them that send him [as the LORD sends us in His name to do His work].
27 The fear of the LORD prolongs days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
29 The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
31 The mouth of the just brings forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out.
32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaks forwardness [twisting and perverting truth].

Hosea 8
1 Set the trumpet to your mouth. He shall come as an eagle [flying in heaven with full understanding] against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
2 Israel shall [open their mouths and] cry unto me, My God, we know you.
3 Israel has cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him [into the Red sea, as they have].
4 They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it [them] not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.
5 Your calf, O Samaria [My people turned to idols put in MY place and called by My name], has cast you off; my anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocence [claiming you haven’t done this]?
6 For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.
7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind [cuwphah – this voice of the Almighty, as a trumpet calling all to gather to Him, away from idols into His ONE BODY]: it has no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal [because they are going their own ways and speaking their own words]: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
8 Israel is swallowed up [into hell by the ever-open mouths of men]: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.
9 For they are gone up to Assyria [the communists in power], a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim has hired lovers.
10 Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.
11 Because Ephraim has made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.
12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.
13 They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of my offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepts them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth] their sins: they shall return to Egypt [a state of oppression under tyrants as they have].
14 For Israel has forgotten his Maker, and built temples; and Judah [the leadership of God’s people] has multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.

Elihu (the God unknown speaking from the flesh), in Job 37:9, using the word cuwphah, defines the whirlwind as a massive amount of water in the cloud, the word of the Almighty, thundering understanding from where it was held, and by it changing (allasso and katallasso) the earth.

Job 36
24 Remember that you magnify his work [the effect of His word you receive as His, or not], which men behold.
25 Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off [rachowq – in this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of tyrants].
26 Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.
27 For he makes small [seeming to be insignificant, because they are sent through the lowly and powerless] the drops of water: they pour down rain [matar – His word through His martyrs] according to the vapor [‘ed, only appearing here and in Genesis 2:6 where it’s the “mist” that rose from the earth, revealing the LORD’s presence to ‘adamah, the human inhabitants of the earth, before making Adam, the first soul brought to life by this word from the mouth of God]. thereof:
28 Which the clouds [where understanding is held when it leaves the earth, held there in its separated elements] do drop and distil upon man abundantly.
29 Also can any understand the spreading of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle [the thunder, His voicing giving understanding, from the light]?
30 Behold, he spreads his light upon it, and covers the bottom [the darkened deep] of the sea [all humanity in ignorance of Him].
31 For by them [His word through His martyrs] judges he the people; he gives meat [this deep meaning that strengthens] in abundance.
32 With clouds he covers [this understanding withheld] the light; and commands it not to shine by the cloud that comes betwixt [reserving it there for this apocalypse, when it comes in the whirlwind].
33 The noise [rea’, meaning “a crash (of thunder), noise (of war), shout (of joy)”] thereof shows concerning it, the cattle [His flock upon whom it comes] also concerning the vapor [the word here is ’alah; saying it concerns the understanding that left: rose into the cloud in separated elements].

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

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

Matthew 12
34 O generation of vipers [whose mouths are filled with poison], how can you, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart [this good word from the mouth of God] brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees [the religious worshipping idols they call by My name, who have no idea who I Am] answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from you.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah [who after coming from the belly of hell, calls all to repent, change, away from the corruption keeping them in the hell he escaped]:
40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s [ketos, from chasma: the great “gulf” between heaven and hell, which cannot be crossed without repenting from the words that self-condemn them into it, their open mouths the gates holding them in its] belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth [held there unseen, by the ignorance created by these same evil men in power].
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall [obey and open their mouths with this good conversation] condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here.
42 The queen of the south [those who now see Him who they before only heard of] shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold [as she saw], a greater than Solomon is here. [1 Kings 10:6 And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in my own land of your acts and of your wisdom. 7 Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and my eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: your wisdom and prosperity exceeds the fame which I heard. 8 Happy are your men, happy are these your servants, which stand continually before you, and that hear {shama’ – and obey} your wisdom. 9 Blessed be the LORD your God, which delighted in you, to set you on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel forever, therefore made he you king, to do judgment and justice.]
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man [when he has repented of the corrupt that held him], he walketh through dry places [without this word of God], seeking rest, and finds none.
44 Then he says, I will return into my house [the corrupt churches] from whence I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished [also cleanse, by His forgiveness, of corruption but also without this word of the LORD they refuse].
45 Then goes he [as dogs returning to their own vomit, and sows that were washed to their wallowing in the mire they again stir – their word that condemn them to remain in hell], and taketh with himself seven other spirits [the misleading of devils mixed among them] more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first [because he ignorantly believes he is saved, while he is taken deeper into the bottomless pit of hell]. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
47 Then one said unto him, Behold, your mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to speak with you.
48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
50 For whosoever shall DO [not just hear] the will of my Father which is in heaven [speaking from the place of full understanding, shaking heaven and earth], the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Nahum 1
1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite [the Comforter, who is also God the ensnarer].
2 God is jealous, and the LORD revenges; the LORD revenges, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserves wrath for his enemies.
3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD has his way in the whirlwind [cuwphah – the end that comes with His uncovering] and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
4 He rebukes the sea, and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers: Bashan languishes, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languishes.
5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knows them that trust in him.
8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end [kalah] of the place thereof, and darkness [their own ignorance] shall pursue his enemies.
9 What do you imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end [kalah]: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
10 For while they be folded together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.
11 There is one come out of you, that imagines evil [ra’] against the LORD, a wicked counselor [ya’ats].
12 Thus says the LORD; Though they be quiet [shalam – though they think their power is secure], and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted you, I will afflict you no more.
13 For now will I break his yoke from off you, and will burst your bonds in sunder.
14 And the LORD has given a commandment concerning you, that no more of your name be sown: out of the house of your gods will I cut off [karath] the graven image and the molten image [maccekah – the vail of confusion upon all {the nations} who haven’t known me]: I will make your grave; for you are vile.
15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publishes peace! O Judah, keep your solemn feasts, perform your vows [neder]: for the wicked shall no more pass through you; he is utterly cut off [karath].

Isaiah 30
1 Woe to the rebellious children, says the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover [nacak – pour out] with a covering [maccekah], but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
2 That walk to go down into Egypt [and by this covering condemn yourselves into hell], and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh [the tyrants in power], and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3 Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.

20 And though the LORD give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not your teachers be removed into a corner any more, but your eyes shall see your teachers:
21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.
22 You shall defile also the covering [tsippuwy – the words in which you put your trust] of your graven images of silver, and the ornament of your molten images [maccekah – the vail of confusion] of gold [corruption this corrupt world values]: you shall cast them away as a menstruous cloth; you shall say unto it, Get you hence.
23 Then shall he give the rain [this word from heaven] of your seed [to bring life again to the earth], that you shall sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall your cattle feed in large pastures.
24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender [this pure food from heaven], which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.
25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
26 Moreover the light of the moon [the new civil government] shall be as the light [understanding] of the sun [of the LORD’s ONE BODY], and the light [the understanding] of the sun [Church] shall be sevenfold [perfected], as the light of seven days [the understanding of the full creation completed], in the day that the LORD binds up the breach of his people, and heals the stroke of their wound.
27 Behold, the name of the LORD comes from far [merchaq – this appointed time the LORD decreed, recognized in His manner as long ago], burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation [za’am], and his tongue as a devouring fire:
28 And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.
29 You shall have a song [this word to be repeated as received], as in the night [in this time of darkness] when a holy solemnity [qadash – this time of cleansing] is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a pipe [with this music] to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel.
30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall show the lighting [understanding] down of his arm [by His works], with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones [this word frozen in heaven, sent against the current corrupt crop of leaders].
31 For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian [the communists in power] be beaten down, which [He will] smote with a rod [this just law from My mouth].
32 And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the LORD shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking [as in Hebrews 12] will he fight with it.
33 For Tophet [this place of fires] is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he has made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD [whose words are a consuming fire], like a stream of brimstone, does kindle it.

Psalms 17
1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that go not out of feigned [deceiving] lips.
2 Let my sentence come forth from your presence; let your eyes behold the things that are equal.
3 You have proved my heart; you have visited [paqad – as the Chief Overseer] me in the night [this time when ignorance covers the earth]; you have tried me, and shall find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
5 Hold up my goings in your paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon you, for you will hear me, O God: incline your ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7 Show your marvelous lovingkindness, O you that saves by your right hand them which put their trust in you from those that rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye [you’ve instructed into seeing as you see], hide me under the shadow of your wings,
9 From [paniym – manifest your presence against] the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10 They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouths they speak proudly.
11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint [paniym – by your presence against] him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is your sword:
14 From men which are your hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly you fill with your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15 As for me, I will behold [chazah – perceive] your face [paniym – Your presence] in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with your likeness.
