But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says the LORD.

6 April 2024

But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says the LORD.

The above, Jeremiah 9:24, is from a chapter that begins with Jeremiah (Jehovah rising to raise His people) lamenting the slain daughter of His people, which He says resulted from them leaving Him to join with an “assembly of treacherous men.”

He then says the following:

Jeremiah 9
3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, says the LORD.
4 Take you heed every one of his neighbor, and trust you not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will walk with slanders.
5 And they will deceive every one his neighbor, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
6 Your habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they [have been taught, they] refuse to know me, says the LORD.
7 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people?
8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaks deceit: one speaks peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart [his mind] he lays his wait [with traps and snares].
9 Shall I not visit [paqad – come as the Chief Overseer, the watchman, of the earth, to] them for these things? says the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

Isaiah 29
1 Woe to Ariel [the Lion of God – the strength {understanding} of God, here taken and controlled by the wicked], to Ariel, the city where David [the lion of Judah] dwelt! add you year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel [it will again be My strength].
3 And I [as a man of war] will camp against you round about, and will lay siege against you with a mount, and I will raise forts against you.
4 And you shall be brought down, and shall speak out of the ground, and your speech shall be low out of the dust [as the voice of the serpent from the ruin of the earth], and your voice shall be, as of one that has a familiar spirit [of the known dead speaking words of death], out of the ground, and your speech shall whisper out of the dust.
5 Moreover the multitude of your strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.
6 You shall be visited [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the Earth] of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition [matsowd – her munitions are the net with which they catch those who are without the root, foundation, of righteousness], and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.
8 It shall even be as when a hungry man dreams, and, behold, he eats; but he awakes, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreams, and, behold, he drinks; but he awakens, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul has appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion [when they awaken and realize their own mind’s delusions deceived them and they have been emptied of all understanding].
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder [not knowing what you are experiencing]; cry you out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For the LORD has poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep [with no signs of life], and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers [ra’ah – those who see as God sees] has he covered [kacah].
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book [cepher] that is sealed [chatham], which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed [chatham]:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart [the foundations of their mind – their stiocheion is corrupt] far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous [eye opening] work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder [pele’ – at which all have wondered]: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their [wicked] counsel [‘etsah] from the LORD, and their works are in the dark [their own ignorance of reality and truth they can’t understand because it is as a foreign language], and they say, Who sees us? and who knows us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down [the overthrow] shall be esteemed as the potter’s [yatsar] clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed [yatser] say of him that framed [yatsar] it, He had no understanding?
17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon [purity seen in high places] shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words [this word] of the book [cepher], and the eyes of the blind shall see [again] out of obscurity, and out of darkness [by coming out of ignorance].
19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20 For the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproves in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught.
22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed [padah] Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale [but they will reach the end promised].
23 But when he sees his children [who have been born again out of death and hell], the work of my hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name [declare My identity Holy], and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured [against me] shall learn doctrine.

The word “avenged,” in Jeremiah 9:9 above, is from the Hebrew naqam, which refers us to its descriptions found in Jeremiah’s other uses, the first two coming in Jeremiah 5:9 & 29.

Jeremiah 5
1 Run you to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if you can find a man, if there be any that executes judgment, that seek the truth; and I will pardon it.
2 And though they say, The LORD lives; surely they swear falsely [of their idols, their abominations they created, put in My place, and call by My name].
3 O LORD, are not your eyes upon the truth? you have stricken them, but they have not grieved; you have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
4 Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God.
5 I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke [and are no longer joined with Me in MY work], and burst the bonds [and gone their own ways without Me].
6 Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goes out [from Me] thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.
7 How shall I pardon you for this? your children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had [here and now] fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses [as an army against Me, led by treacherous men in their apostate churches speaking against and vilifying Me].
8 They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbor’s wife.
9 Shall I not visit [paqad] for these things [as I have]? says the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged [naqam] on such a nation [gowy – My people taught to not know Me] as this?
10 Go you up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end [kalah]: take away her battlements [ntioyshah – prune away the branches that produced this corrupt fruit from the mouths of God’s people against Him]; for they are not the LORD’s.
11 For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, says the LORD.
12 They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not him [speaking and working]; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine [as they have not seen that they have refused His word, and haven’t known they have been taught evil now upon them]:
13 And the [many false] prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.
14 Wherefore thus says the LORD God of hosts [I Am, a man of war], Because you speak this word, behold, I will make my words in your mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
15 Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far [merchaq – this appointed time the LORD decreed], O house of Israel, says the LORD: it is a mighty [‘eythan] nation, it is an ancient [‘owlam – immortals] nation, a nation whose language [lashown – the tongue of Isaiah 28:11] you know not [because it is truth spoken to those who’ve only known lies they’ve been taught], neither understand [shama’ – obey] what they say. [This is a further description, a deeper understanding, of the LORD coming with His ten thousands, His saint, against those speaking against Him, as foretold by Enoch. Here He tells of them coming as gowy, themselves not knowing Him as first, until He, as planned, awakens them again from death.]
16 Their quiver is as an open sepulcher [the grave where the LORD hid His children is now opened], they are all mighty men.
17 And they shall eat up [with the LORD’s fire from their mouths consume] your [wicked] harvest, and your [corrupt] bread, which your [evil] sons and your daughters should eat: they shall eat up your [wicked] flocks and your herds: they shall eat up your vines and your fig trees [into and from which evil words flow]: they shall impoverish your fenced cities, wherein you trusted, with the sword [this word you’ve refused to hear and obey].
18 Nevertheless in those days, says the LORD, I will not make a full end [kalah] with you.
19 And it shall come to pass, when you shall say, Wherefore does the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shall you answer them, Like as you have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land [‘erets – the earth I have given you], so shall you serve strangers in a land [‘erets – the earth] that is not yours [because you have given it into the hands of the wicked].
20 Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying,
21 Hear [shama’ – hear this voice as My voice, and for your good obey what you hear] now this, O foolish people, and without understanding [leb – without intellect]; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear [shama’] not:
22 Fear you not me? says the LORD: will you not tremble at my presence [paniym], which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree [choq – that humanity shall not pass this time, except by Me, by hearing and obeying My commands], that it cannot pass it [‘abar – cannot Passover from death into life, except by Me]: and though the waves thereof toss themselves [the pride of the men who’ve risen up and rule over you as tyrants], yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it [‘abar – this time and death]?
23 But this people has a revolting and a rebellious heart [mind]; they are revolted and gone [away from My sound mind].
24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that gives rain [His word from heaven], both the former [written and sent as a wheel within a wheel] and the latter [now spoken, and here written], in his season: he reserves [it in heaven for us] unto us the appointed weeks of the [this] harvest.
25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withheld good things from you.
26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that sets snares; they set a trap, they catch men [all humanity in this time come upon it unaware].
27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are [by deceptions] become great, and waxen rich.
28 They are waxen fat, they shine [their corrupt teaching]: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless [without a man to protect and defend them], yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
29 Shall I not visit [paqad] for these things [as I have]? says the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged [naqam] on such a nation [gowy – My people taught to not know Me] as this?
30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land [‘erets – the earth];
31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their [corrupt misleading] means; and my people love to have it so: and what will you do in the end thereof [‘achariyth – in these last days of darkness, this appointed time]?

Daniel 11
40 And at the time of the end [qets] shall the king of the south push at [nagach – go to war against] him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind [sa’ar – causing great fear, manufacturing hoax crises, causing irrational fear and panic they use to gain and keep control: a war that is as], with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow [with the flood of evil communication] and [bring the] pass over [‘abar – the end when the dead are awakened, “some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt”].

The word sa’ar, only used eight times, refers us to Deuteronomy 32, saying:

15 But Jeshurun [God’s people who prospered under Him] waxed fat, and kicked: you are waxen fat, you are grown thick, you are covered with fatness [prosperity that comes by following My good advice]; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.
17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared [sa’ar] not.
18 Of the Rock that begat you you are unmindful, and have forgotten God that formed you.
19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
20 And he said, I will hide my face [paniym – My presence] from them, I will see what their end [‘achariyth] shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
22 For a fire is kindled in my anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

28 For they are a nation [gowy – that haven’t known Me, because they are] void of counsel [‘etsah – meaning “{without My good} advice; by implication, {not knowing My} plan; also {without juris}prudence”], neither is there any understanding [tabuwn – they are without Divine intellect] in them.
29 O that they were wise, that they understood [sakal] this, that they would consider [biyn] their latter end [‘achariyth]!

The word sakal is the same rendered “understanding” in the title verse and is then rendered “prosper” in Jeremiah 10:21. In this latter use, it speaks of those without understanding not prospering in their intended end against the LORD. These men and those who follow them, who awaken and choose to remain in hell, do so because they know not the “time of their visitation” because they’ve been taught corruption by these same false Christs who put themselves in His place.

Jeremiah 10
6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is great in might.
7 Who would not fear you, O King of nations? for to you [Yahh] does it appertain [ya’ah]: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto you.
8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities [worthlessness].
9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men [creating idols, putting them in My place, and calling them by My name].
10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth [‘erets] shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation [za’am].
11 Thus shall you say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth [‘araq – the old earth, cursed by its own bitterness], even they shall perish from the earth [‘erets], and from under these heavens [they corrupted].
12 He [the LORD] has made the earth [‘erets] by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and has stretched [in this exposition] out the [new] heavens by his discretion.
13 When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causes the vapors [nasiy’ – meaning “properly, an exalted one, i.e. a king or sheik; also a rising mist”] to ascend from the ends of the earth [ending the old and beginning the new]; he makes lightnings [understanding] with rain [His word sent], and brings forth the wind [His Almighty Spirit] out of his treasures [these gifts from His storehouse, armory, in the cloud].
14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image [they created, put in God’s place, and call by His name]: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath [life] in them.
15 They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation [pquddah – the same as paqad] they shall perish.
16 The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he [the LORD] is the former [yatsar – the creator, the potter who formed the earth] of all things; and Israel is the rod [shebet – the scepter to rule] of his inheritance [in whom He dwells]: The LORD of hosts [a man of war] is his name. [This verse appears verbatim in Jeremiah 51:19, followed by, “you are my battle axe and weapons of war: for with you will I break in pieces the nations, and with you will I destroy {evil} kingdoms;]
17 Gather up your wares [kin’ah – only used here, meaning pack to take with you] out of the land [the old and corrupt earth], O inhabitant of the fortress.
18 For thus says the LORD, Behold [you will see it], I will sling out [qala’ – as when David “slung” the stone that brought down Goliath, after which David cut off his head with his own sword] the inhabitants of the land [‘erets – the earth] at this once [pa’am – now, at this time], and will distress [tsarah – in tribulation] them, that they may find it so.
19 Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous [chalah – by the use of this word the LORD refers us to its appearance in Psalms 77:10]; but I said, Truly this is a grief [choliy – with this the LORD refers us to its only other use by Jeremiah, in Jeremiah 6:7; also the “grief” of the LORD’s anointed, Isaiah 53:3 & 4, from Whom His voice is heard revealing the arm of the LORD], and I must bear it [nasa’ – from which my head shall be lifted, exalted].
20 My tabernacle is spoiled [describing the grievousness and the grief], and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.
21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper [sakal], and all their flocks shall be scattered.
22 Behold, the noise of the bruit is come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons [tanniyn – of whales and serpents, with their ever wide-open mouths, swallowing men and nations into the belly of hell].
23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself [but only by Your word does man live]: it is not in man that walks to direct his steps [for without Your guidance they go astray].
24 O LORD, correct me [back onto the right way], but with judgment; not in your anger, lest you bring me to nothing.
25 Pour out your fury upon the heathen that know you not, and upon the families that call not on your name [identity]: for they have eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate.

Luke 19
37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples [students of His teaching] began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
38 Saying, Blessed be the King that comes in the name of the LORD: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke your disciples.
40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42 Saying, If you had known, even you, at least in this your day, the things which belong unto your peace! but now they are hid from your eyes.
43 For the days shall come upon you, that your enemies shall cast a trench about you, and compass you round, and keep you in on every side,
44 And shall lay you even with the ground, and your children within you; and they shall [scatter you] not leave in you one stone upon another; because you knewest not the time of your visitation.
45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;
46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but you have made it a den of thieves.
47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,
48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

All the following is from the post of 17 January 2024:

Isaiah 53
1 Who has believed our report [shmuw’ah – who has heard these words as the voice of the LORD, as it is]? and to whom [but those who’ve heard it as such] is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him [paniym – into His presence manifested before the eye or the world] as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground [‘erets – the earth without this word of God]: he has no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief [choliy]: and we hid as it were our faces from [paniym – hiding His presence meant to be revealed in us, and will be when awakened by] him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not [remember the meaning of the name Timothy, the name of the highest esteem of God].
4 Surely he has borne our griefs [choliy], and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement [correction] of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray [into apostacy]; we have turned every one to his own way [forgetting the only way is the LORD’s]; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Psalms 77
A Psalms of Asaph [the Gatherer]
1 I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
2 In the day of my trouble [tsarah – this tribulation] I sought the LORD [‘Adonay – the King of kings]: my sore ran [yad nagar – my power left me] in the night [this time when ignorance covers the earth], and ceased not: my soul [sleeping in death] refused to be comforted [by the word of God leading me into all truth and life].
3 I remembered [zakar] God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed [‘ataph – was shrouded, covered by my own confusion]. Selah [think and understand this].
4 You [LORD] hold [‘achaz – seized] my eyes [‘ayin] waking [shmurah – only used here, meaning to awaken by opening them]: I am so troubled [pa’am – to agitate the spirit, by truth contradicting the thoughts {the confusion of mind} into awaking] that I cannot speak [as I should].
5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
6 I call to remembrance [zakar] my song [ngiynah – Your word sent to me of old] in the night [to give light in previous times of darkness]: I commune [siyach – I heard Your voice conversing] with my own heart [in my mind]: and my spirit made diligent search [for You in Your written word sent to me as a wheel within a wheel: understand sent to give understand, which is light and life].
7 Will the LORD [‘Adonay] cast off [zanach – reject us] forever [‘owlam – through all eternity]? and will he be favorable no more [yacaph – no longer adding to His family]?
8 Is his mercy clean gone forever [netsach – no longer the bright light we’ve journeyed toward]? does his promise fail for evermore [dowr – ending with this generation]?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious [not giving us His gift of light, to correct us]? has he in anger shut up his tender mercies [His promise to correct and not destroy those who trust in Him alone]? Selah [think, and know He is still the same, never wavering from Himself or His promises].
10 And I said, This is my infirmity [chalah – self-imposed grievousness of not remembering, not recognizing, not comprehending Him in His conversation and work before our eyes manifesting His presence as He always has, direct interaction with our minds eye]: but I will remember the years of the right hand [Your long-suffering our ignorance of Your presence in the word and work] of the Most High.
11 I will remember [zakar] the works of the LORD: surely I will remember [zakar] your [eye opening] wonders of old.
12 I will meditate also of all your work, and talk [siyach – converse with You] of your doings.
13 Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary [qodesh – the holy of holies, where Your presence is manifested above Your mercy seat, in the conversation]: who is so great a God as our God?
14 You are the God that does wonders: you have declared your strength among the people.
15 You have with your arm [Your work] redeemed your people [from confusion and death], the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah [think].
16 The waters [the words of ignorance that have darkened the world] saw you, O God, the waters saw you; they were afraid: the depths [what men thought they knew] also were troubled.
17 The clouds [where understanding was held, reserved, in its separated elements, to be congealed and sent in this time of the LORD’s righteous warfare] poured out water: the skies sent out a sound [qowl – Your voice thundering from this place of understanding: light]: your arrows also went abroad [halak – walked, gave understanding to Your way, of which the wise of this world are ignorant].
18 The voice [qowl] of your thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way is in the sea [among humanity at large], and your path in the great waters [sent by You from heaven], and your footsteps are not known [to the dead and ignorant].
20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses [Your chosen who was drawn, separated, from the waters below: the words of ignorant men] and Aaron [sent bearing the light given as received, to give it freely].

Jeremiah 6
1 O you children of Benjamin [the last born generation, in this time of darkness, who are become My right hand], gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem [the old and corrupt, were the wicked are seated in high places of power], and blow the trumpet [calling all to gather to the LORD in His ONE BODY] in Tekoa [among the prisoners], and set up a sign of fire [mas’eth – an utterance, as beacon of light, the gift given from the mouth of LORD] in Bethhaccerem [this family that is My vineyard]: for evil appears [is now seen] out of the north [the places of ignorance: principalities and powers, where are seated the rulers of the darkness of this world], and great destruction.
2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.
3 The shepherds [wicked misleaders] with their flocks shall come unto her; they shall pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed every one in his place.
4 Prepare you war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon [now when the sun is fully risen upon her]. Woe unto us! for the day [the time of light: understanding] goes away [in the war against it], for the shadows of the evening are [now] stretched out [covering the earth in confusion and ignorance].
5 Arise, and let us go by night [in this time of which the wicked are ignorant, not knowing they have sown to the wind and now reap the whirlwind], and let us destroy her palaces.
6 For thus has the LORD of hosts [a man of war] said, Hew you down trees [the falsely so-called upright and wise of this wicked and wholly corrupt world], and cast a mount against [old and corrupt] Jerusalem [the places in church and state where sustainable peace and mutual security should be taught and propagated: broadcast, but instead deception and oppression]: this is the city to be visited [paqad – by the LORD, who is the Chief Overseer of the earth]; she is wholly oppressed in the midst of her.
7 As a fountain [broad] casts out her waters [of deception, by which the wicked power rule], so she casts out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard [shama’ – obeyed] in her; before me continually is grief [choliy – against which the LORD with us has necessarily long-suffered] and wounds.
8 Be you instructed, O Jerusalem [My new creation, My ONE BODY, the city wherein righteousness dwells], lest my [immortal] soul depart from you; lest I make you desolate, a land not inhabited.
9 Thus says the LORD of hosts [a man of war], They [the wicked] shall thoroughly glean the remnant of Israel as a vine: turn back your hand as a grape-gatherer into the baskets [return My people to Me, which you have cut off from the vine: from hearing My word].
10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear [shama’ – obey]? behold, their ear is uncircumcised [only obeying the flesh that cut them off from hearing this voice as My voice], and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
11 Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.
12 And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand [My work, in My word] upon the inhabitants [the people at large, here rising upon them as the sun shining this understanding upon all, from east to west] of the land [‘erets – upon the earth], says the LORD.
13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one deals falsely.
14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace [but instead war and destruction are hidden in their words].
15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them [paqad – now when I’ve manifested My presence as the Chief Overseer of the earth] they shall be cast down, says the LORD.
16 Thus says the LORD, “Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your [immortal] souls.” But they said, “We will not walk therein.”
17 Also I set watchmen over you [manifesting My presence in them, making them overseers with My authority], saying, “Hearken to the sound of the trumpet.” But they said, “We will not hearken.”
18 Therefore hear [shama’ – obey], you nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear [shama’ – obey], O earth: behold [look and see], I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
20 To what purpose comes there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
21 Therefore thus says the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumbling-blocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbor and his friend shall perish.
22 Thus says the LORD, Behold, a people comes from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.
23 They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roars like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against you, O daughter of Zion [the army now mixed among you and in power, of which you remain ignorant].
24 We have heard [shama’ – obeyed] the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish has taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail [refusing to bring forth her king].
25 Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side [against those who obey them].
26 O daughter of my people [who are My faithful remnant], gird you with sackcloth [mourn for this people who are poised to be destroyed], and wallow yourself in ashes [of this world’s ruin]: make you mourning, as for an only son [refusing correction and choosing self-destruction], most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly [pith’own] come upon us.
27 I have set you for a tower [raised up by seeing as I see] and a fortress among my people, that you mayest know and try their way.
28 They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters.
29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melts in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away [their corruption isn’t drawn out or purged away].
30 Reprobate silver [refusing to be separated from corruption, in this trial by fire] shall men call them, because the LORD has rejected them [that have rejected His word and work to save them].

Isaiah 53
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation [those who have long-suffered with Me, for the sake of My dead body]? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he has put him to grief [chalah]: when you shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he has poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

The following are excerpts from the post of 6 – 8 April 2023:

O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walks to direct his steps.

The LORD begins above in Jeremiah 10:23, speaking of authentic intelligence, which we must understand. In the previous post, we briefly discussed those who seek the commendation of men, an approval that comes by agreement, which is temporally and falsely called “intelligence” by this evil generation.

It (this evil generation) fails on all accounts when tested against the true definition of intellect, which is (from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary) a: the power of knowing as distinguished from the power to feel and to will: the capacity for knowledge; b: the capacity for rational or intelligent thought, especially when highly developed.

The result of this lack (elevating feelings and will into opinions substituted for knowledge) is the inability to solve complex problems and instead acting irrationally, ignorantly supposing and proposing them (irrational acts) as such (solutions).

As we know, this is the dilemma spiritually described as captivity in Babylon (confusion that now rules the world), which the LORD let run its course and blossom into mass delusion (insanity: the inability to distinguish between reality and the delusions your strayed minds have created).

As policy, the condition is intentionally imposed through programming by those who removed God from their knowledge and then taught what produced weakness of minds they could control and (parasitically) consume. This (weakness’) end (self-evident to those awakened to reality) includes the inability to recognize the presence of the attack within (paradoxically disguising itself in the feeling of superiority and a conscience corrupted by deceitful data entered), and instead, rejecting it as the cause, believes the cure (a sound mind) is the threat, which, in defense of the cause, must be combatted (attacked and destroyed).

This (the process of demoralization) is alluded to in the title verse, as the “way” and “walk” of man directed by men who’ve created gods they put in the place of the true and living God with us. He is here and always has been for those who choose to hear Him, and when learning His ways and walk (Good Programming in us), He gives us understanding, which is the light and life of men of sound minds.

So, don’t believe the modern churches that have devolved into telling you all you have to do is believe (them, and the gods they call by the name of the true God they reject). The “grace” they are ignorant of, by which you are saved, is the mind of the LORD God in us, by learning His ways and ideas, the free education He gives to all who receive it (His mind).

Colossians 2
6 As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the LORD, so walk you in him:
7 Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain [worthless] deceit [of this evil generation], after the tradition of men, after the rudiments [stoicheion – the corrupt foundational ideas] of the world, and not after Christ [the LORD manifested in the flesh of those He sends to teach and lead].
9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And you are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also you are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ [removing the flesh and seeing the LORD within]:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also you are risen with him through the faith [believing He is risen in the flesh of those the LORD sends] of the operation of God, who has raised him from the dead.

Romans 12
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, [the gift] to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in ONE BODY, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are ONE BODY in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

Philippians 3
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my LORD: for whom I have suffered the loss of all [worthless and unneeded] things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9 And be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith [that it is Him in the flesh, working and speaking]:
10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those [worthless and unneeded] things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those [needed] things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal [apokalupto] even this unto you.
16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as you have us for an example.
18 (For many walk [their own way], of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

Matthew 11
I thank you, O Father, LORD of heaven and earth, because you have hid [apokrupto] these things from the wise [sophos] and prudent [of the world], and have revealed [apokalupto] them unto babes.
26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in your sight.
27 All things [needed] are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and LEARN of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Zechariah 4
5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Know you not what these be? And I said, No, my LORD.
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel [in the king line of Judah {David thru Jesus} – born again by coming out of confusion], saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit [working and speaking in the flesh], says the LORD of hosts [a man of war].
7 Who are you, O great mountain [the corrupt in power]? before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone [the seed of Joseph, like Joshua the son of Nun, from where comes the shepherd and stone] thereof with shouting, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
9 The hands [the work] of Zerubbabel [by coming out of confusion] have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me unto you.
10 For who has despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet [the measuring line] in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven [the angels of the seven churches]; they are the [single] eyes of the LORD [seeing as He sees], which run to and fro [with an everlasting gospel to preach] through the whole earth.
11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick [from whom the LORD’s shines] and upon the left side thereof?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13 And he answered me and said, Know you not what these be? And I said, No, my LORD.
14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones [Joshua and Zerubbabel – here the cleansed priesthood and the children the LORD has given them], that stand by the LORD [‘adown – king, here referring to the seed of Joseph, Shiloh: tranquility {restoring calm} of the whole earth].

Revelation 15
1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up [the anointing oil that makes them shine] the wrath of God.
2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass [the people calmed away from those agitating them] mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast [Babylon – the confusion that ruled over the world], and over his image, and over his mark [in his words and works, ideas and ways, in head and hand], and over the number of his name [ashes of the world he ruined, the dust in which he slithers {Strong’s Hebrews Dictionary number 666, the number of a man, assigned by James Strong}, in which he hides his identity], stand on the sea of glass [in our victory over death, calming the people of the new earth], having the harps of God.
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, LORD God Almighty; just and true are your ways, you King of saints.
4 Who shall not fear you, O LORD, and glorify your name? [Yahh – to whom it appertains] for you only are holy [pure of all corruption]: for all nations shall come and worship before you; for your judgments are made manifest [phaneroo].
5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
6 And the seven angels [the messengers with the LORD’s message] came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles [the preparation of these treasure].
7 And one of the four beasts [Ezekiel 1:10 As for the likeness of their faces {presence}, they four had the face of a man {in whom the mystery of godliness is revealed}, and the face {as presence} of a lion {a king roaring: speaking this word from the mouth of God}, on the right side: and they four had the face {presence} of an ox {working in the earth, the Spirit of the LORD moving} on the left side; they four also had the face {presence} of an eagle {by the LORD strength, full understanding, flying in the heavens}.] gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever.
8 And the temple was filled with smoke [to rid it of the vermin that were before infesting it] from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels [cleansing the seven churches: the now corrupt institutions] were fulfilled.

These seven plagues are poured out in the following chapter (Revelation 16), revealing the infestation’s cause and effect. The cleansing thereof occurs when the seventh angel clears the air of smoke, pouring his vial into it. His voice is then heard from the throne in the temple saying, “It is done,” referring to the last verse above fulfilled.

The air (aer – same word as in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, where we meet the LORD) is telling where the smoke comes from, referring to the words use in Revelation 9:2, when the star falls from heaven (no longer having full understanding), and opens the bottomless pit (the endless fall, once it starts, of man away from God). Out of this pit comes smoke that darkens the air and sun (so none could see the way, and the church became filled with ignorance: without light). It says, in this smoke are locusts (devouring all that grows on the earth), who have power like scorpions, but they don’t hurt any green thing, only those men who don’t have the seal of God (His protective understanding) in their heads.

These scorpions torment men with their strikes: their words, as venom doing its damage inside, rotting men’s minds over time. We are told these locusts, with bites (their messages) like scorpions, have a king over them, who is the messenger (angel) of the bottomless pit. This king is given names that mean destroyer and destruction.

The men who subsequently follow, still in the endless fall away, whose strength and voice (as horses they ride with word as if roaring from lions) out of whose mouth comes that same (blinding ignorance) smoke, with fire and brimstone. These are the corrupt teaching of false prophets that follows, whose tails (the effect, what they cause) are like serpents, now not just tormenting and rotting minds but killing men’s (already rotted) minds.

In the following chapter (Revelation 10), the seventh angel sounds, revealing the thunders that were mysteries.

Revelation 10
5 And the [seventh] angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And swore by him that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time [chronos] no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound [be heard as the only voice of God], the mystery [musterion] of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.

Friends, the world is now again become without form and void, filled with confusion and emptiness, an effect caused by many voices babbling opinions, feelings uncontrolled by their own ignorant will. This is hell, and all are dead, and the only way out of death and hell is hearing the One Voice of the LORD and following His instructions.

In Revelation 16, between the sixth and seventh angel sounding, the LORD tells of manifesting His presence (name and identity) through (with and in) the seventh messenger (the only voice speaking for Him, with His authority),

after men began worshipping confusion (taking the mark in their hand and head: in their works and words: their ways and ideas),

and all the waters became blood, words draining life from the world, and all living became dead,

and all the rivers of blood continued to flow the blood of dead men, keeping all dead in hell,

5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, You are righteous, O LORD, which are, and was, and shall be, because you have judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, LORD God Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.

and the church caused men to pass through the fires their darkness caused, and they vilified God’s word and work to correct them and refused His calls for them to repent,

10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat [of power] of the beast [the confusion that rules the world]; and his kingdom was full of darkness [ignorance]; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates [from where the word of God once flowed producing the fruitfulness of the earth]; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean [defiled] spirits like frogs [which were before hidden below the surface of the waters: evil in their words] come out of the mouth of the dragon [those who, as serpents and whales, swallow men into the belly of hell], and out of the mouth of the beast [the insanity, Babylon that rules the world], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [the known liars and false accusers in church and state media].
14 For they are the spirits of devils [misleaders who put themselves in God’s place], working miracles [saying they are opening eyes to knowledge not before known], which go forth unto the kings [ruling powers] of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty [at the time He decreed, which no man knows].

The LORD then speaks of this moment, when He has come and done His work, of which none are aware;

15 Behold, I [have] come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame [disappointment when what {I Am} they didn’t expect comes].
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [this mountain of the rendezvous at this decreed time].
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air [clearing the smoke so everything is clearly seen as it is]; and there came a [one] great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne [of God], saying, “It is done.”
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake [to shake the wicked from heaven and earth], and so great. [Are you ready?]
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away [and this word of God will be heard in all the places that have been without it], and the mountains [the high places, seats of power of the wicked] were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven [this word reserved there for this moment, sent to destroy the current crop of corrupt leaders], every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Isaiah 28
14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, you scornful men, that rule this people which are in Jerusalem.
15 Because you have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us [self-righteously and arrogantly thinking your ways and ideas are perfect]: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus says the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste [not be ashamed].
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down [as a corrupt crop] by it.
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [shmuw’ah – it is the voice of Jehovah heard].

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