And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spoke: and the multitudes marveled, saying, “It was never so seen in Israel.”

17 – 19 April 2024

And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spoke: and the multitudes marveled, saying, “It was never so seen in Israel.”

The word devil, above in Matthew 9:33, is daimonian, which is a derivative of the word daimon, meaning “from daio (to distribute fortunes); a dæmon or supernatural spirit (of a bad nature):–devil.”

Philippians 3
17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk [peripateo] so as you have us for an example.
18 (For many walk [peripateo – their own way, after the flesh, seeking worldly fortunes], 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 [apoleia – perdition], whose [false] God [they call by His name] is their belly [like serpents and whales, their power is, with their open mouths, to consume lives and livelihoods and hold them therein], and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence [in the conversation with Him, through which we receive heavenly fortunes] also we look for the Savior, the LORD Jesus Christ:
21 Who [by the power of His word, His grace, the gift given, effectually working in us] shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue [hupotasso – bring into obedience] all things unto himself.

Romans 6
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin [obeying erroneous teaching that blinds the dead and keeps them dumb], that grace may abound [continue to be given]?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? [1 Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles {who don’t know the LORD} sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils {daimonion}, and not to God: and I would not that you should have fellowship with devils {daimonion}. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the LORD, and the cup of devils {daimonion}: you cannot be partakers of the LORD’s table, and of the table of devils {daimonion}.]
3 Know you not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk [peripateo] in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together [into the new earth] in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in this new earth] in the likeness of his resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man [obeying corruption] is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin [teaching that blinded the world and made all dead].
8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death has no more dominion over him.
10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he lives, he lives unto God.
11 Likewise reckon you also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our LORD.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof [seeking worldly fortunes, and not first the kingdom of God, His dominion].
13 Neither yield you your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto [doing the will of] God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law [as men have corrupted it], but under grace [this gift freely given].
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law [as some men teach], but under grace? God forbid.
16 Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin [teaching that corrupts the mind] unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
17 But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of [sound] doctrine which was delivered you [as received].
18 Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.
19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
20 For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness.
21 What fruit had you then in those things whereof you are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our LORD.

1 Timothy 3
14 These things write I unto you, hoping to come unto you shortly:
15 But if I tarry long, that you mayest know how you ought to behave yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was [is] manifest in the flesh [of those speaking His word and doing His work], justified in the Spirit [while working and speaking in this manner unknown], seen of angels [those who, by His purification, become His messengers giving His word as received], preached [by His messengers] unto the Gentiles [those who haven’t known Him as He is present in this manner speaking and working], believed on in the world [as He now is, after His word effectually worked in those receiving it as His presence], received up [Him and His word exalted] into glory [realized as Him present with us and in us].

1 Timothy 4
1 Now the Spirit speaks expressly [rhetos – only used here meaning “out-spokenly, i.e. distinctly,” to express in words, as in the Hebrew word nagad discussed in the previous post, rendered “certify,” in 2 Samuel 15:28, meaning “to front, i.e. stand boldly out opposite; by implication (causatively), to manifest; figuratively, to announce (always by word of mouth to one present); specifically, to expose, predict, explain, praise.”] that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing [planos – wandering stars, deceivers in the darkness misleading] spirits, and [false] doctrines of devils [daimonion];
2 Speaking lies [pseudologos – only used here, meaning they are speaking {teaching} false doctrines {they were taught by devils}] in hypocrisy [hupokrisis – under condemnation, having made the wrong decision to remain chained in their own darkness, which, in Luke 12:1, is the leaven, corruption worked in by the religious powers, of which the LORD warned us to be-aware]; having their conscience [suneidesis – their “co-perception” {like mindedness with the LORD}] seared with a hot iron [kauteriazo – only used here, meaning “to brand (“cauterize”), i.e. (by implication) to render unsensitive (figuratively),” as bands refusing to be plucked {harpazo} from the fires];
3 Forbidding to marry [into the LORD’s ONE BODY], and commanding to abstain from meats [this deep understanding sent to strengthens us to life and pull us from the fires], which God has created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe [it is Him speaking] and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: [the four times used word ktisma, rendered “creature,” speaks of those created by receiving this word as the word of God, by receiving it as such and knowing the truth, as it is, as written in James 1:18, saying “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures {ktisma}.]
5 For it is sanctified [made holy, separated from corruption for His work] by the word of God and prayer.
6 If you put the brethren in remembrance of these things, you shall be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto you have attained.

James 1
12 Blessed is the man that endures temptation [to not believe the LORD is present with us]: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the LORD has promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust has conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness [by which you will inherit the earth] the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be you doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholds himself, and goes his [own] way, and straightway forgets what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26 If any man among you seems to be religious, and bridles not his tongue [refusing to subordinate his words to those the LORD has given us, to give them as received], but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction [in this tribulation rescue those without a man to lead and protect them from the wicked who seek to devourer them with their ever open mouth], and to keep himself unspotted [uncorrupted] from the world.

1 Timothy 4
7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself [working them out of your minds] rather unto godliness.
8 For bodily exercise profits little: but godliness [the mystery of which is revealed in 1 Timothy 3:16 above] is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come [now in this new creation].
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
10 For therefore we both labor [speaking His word as commanded] and suffer reproach [because we declare it is not only His but Him manifesting His presence in our flesh], because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe [He is alive in us].
11 These things command and teach.
12 Let no man despise your youth [when I was a child, before I put away childish things and became a man: the first-fruit of God’s new creation]; but be you an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
14 Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
15 Meditate upon these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all.
16 Take heed unto yourself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself, and them that hear [the LORD speaking in] you.

The word ktisma, above speaking of the new creation of man, by divine intention, bears an affinity to two once used Greek words, chasma and its presumed derivative ketos, and also the Hebrew word tsama’ (to thirst).

As we’ve seen in many previous posts, the word chasma (in Luke 16:26) is the great “gulf” between heaven and hell, which Abraham tells the rich man none can cross, because they will not believe, even though one has risen from death in their hell to warn them.

Likewise, we know, the word ketos is the word (in Matthew 12:40) rendered “whale’s” belly, which Jonah, in Jonah 2:2, calls “the belly of hell,” and the LORD calls “the belly of the earth” where He will be until He is again seen by those who repent of their corruption and receive Him as the living word of God, Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in what was before, without Him, dead flesh.

Likewise, these both (chasma and ketos) speak of the open mouths of men, with which they swallow (devour) men, and, as the gates of hell, hold them there in death’s sleep. It is into this place, the ruin of the earth become without form and void, confusion and emptiness, when the deep is darkened, the LORD comes to move us into light and new life.

Here’s the plan:

Matthew 16
12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees [the religious powers, some believing in the resurrection and some not believing].
13 When Jesus came into the coasts [meros – the division] of Caesarea [to sever from the corrupt] Philippi [His friends who’ve become the white, purified, horse in whom He rides into the battle at hand], he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man Am?
14 And they said, Some [that believe in resurrection] say that you are John the Baptist: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.
15 He says unto them, But whom say you that I Am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona [son of Jonah, the first to see the LORD and, with Him, rise from the belly of hell]: for flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you, but my Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock [from where My word flows, and the Father’s presence is declared in the son] I will build my church [My ONE BODY]; and the gates of hell [the mouths of men uncontrollably spewing corruption] shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto you the keys [kleis – confessing the Father’s presence, speaking and working in our flesh] of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
21 From that time forth began Jesus to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem [preaching and teaching the Father’s words, which flow from Him the ways of sustainable peace: reciprocal security in life, liberty, and property], and [declaring the Father’s presence in me] suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed [as they did], and be raised again the third day [as I Am].

The other five uses of the word kleis (keys) describe what is “bound” in and “loosed” from the belly of the earth into heaven. It is the knowledge of God, bound and held in hell by those now themselves bound and held there when it is loosed.

Luke 11
52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key [kleis] of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye [with your corrupt judgment and misleading interpretations of law] hindered.

These types of men are the “dragon” of John’s Revelation, from the Greek drakon, a word with meaning and origin (bound in men’s ignorance) now, in the LORD’s kingdom, revealed (loosed) in this new earth as it is in heaven. The word rendered “fish” three times in Jonah, is dag (da’g), and the word rendered “fish’s” belly is dagah, words that are also the origin of the name Dagon (dagown – fish god), an idol worshipped by the Philistines, the invading enemy army now mixed among us.

The name Dagon only appears thirteen times, all describing the pattern of these men’s evil deeds: the confusion (insanity) they worship and teach.

Judges 15
14 And when he came unto Lehi [the jaw – the place where God people’s mouths are opened], the Philistines [the enemy army] shouted against him [against God’s people, and those teaching them strength through knowledge of God]: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire [the word of God from their mouth], and his bands loosed from off his hands.
15 And he found a new jawbone [a voice that would be wounded] of an ass [the same as of Zechariah 9:9, upon which the LORD enters Jerusalem, His elect remnant, who, in Zachariah 10:3, when raise again become His goodly horse in the battle], and put forth his hand, and took it [as one stick in his hand], and slew a thousand men therewith.
16 And Samson [who is like the sun, the church] said, With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men.
17 And it came to pass, when he had made an end [kalah] of speaking [became silent], that he cast away the jawbone out of his hand [as casting away the scepter to rule], and called that place Ramathlehi [referring us to Jeremiah 31:15, and Ramah, where Rachel’s voice is heard mourning her children, “because they were not,” meaning they remained asleep, in an endless fall into corruption without the LORD’s word in their mouths.]
18 And he was sore athirst [tsama’ – held in the whale’s belly without the LORD’s word], and called on the LORD [as did Jonah out of the belly of hell], and said, You have given this great deliverance into the hand of your servant: and now shall I die for thirst [tsama’], and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised [dead flesh without your Holy Spirit]?
19 But God clave a hollow place that was in the jaw, and there came [living] water thereout; and when he had drunk, his spirit came again, and he [the church: like the sun returning after a time of darkness] revived [chayah – was brought to life again from the dead]: wherefore he called the name thereof Enhakkore [fountain of the One calling him to life], which is in Lehi [salvation by confessing the LORD presence in us – life which is as near as the word heard from our mouths] unto this day.
20 And he [Samson] judged Israel in the days of the Philistines twenty years.

Judges 16
16 And it came to pass, when she [Delilah – from the eight times used word dalal, meaning to languish and become feeble, when dried up, without the word of God] pressed [tsuwq – oppressed] him [the strength, light, of the church – Samson, who is like the sun] daily with her [own] words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed [qatsar – curtailed, reaped] unto death;
17 That he told [nagad] her all his heart, and said unto her, There has not come a razor [mowrah] upon my head; for I have been a Nazarite [naziyr] unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven [qalach], then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.

The words used in these two verses tell us what is actually occurring here in patterns we thereby understand. They reveal a pattern of Joseph, who, after he told (nagad – declaring the vision God gave him, boldly standing, manifesting the LORD’s presence to) his brothers (Genesis 37:5) of his dream, was hated for it, and separated from them.

The word naziyr first appears in Genesis 49:26 (rendered “him that was separated from”), a chapter in which Jacob “tells” (nagad) his children what shall befall (qara’) them in these last days (‘achariyth).

Genesis 49

18 (I have waited for [qavah – expected] your salvation [yshuw’ah – Joshua, Jesus, the child of Joseph], O LORD.)

22 Joseph is a fruitful bough [parah ben – fruitful son], even a fruitful bough [parah ben – fruitful son] by a well [a tree of life by these waters of God]; whose branches run over the wall [the wall of lies men have created and teach]:
23 The archers [ba’al – the gods, lords of this world, whose teaching has blinded all from seeing the Father, in the son, the seed of the women who brings forth the man child – see Revelation 12:17] have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless [barak] you with blessings [brakah] of heaven above, blessings [brakah] of the deep that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings [brakah] of the breasts, and of the womb [seed, the son]:
26 The blessings [brakah] of your father have prevailed above the blessings [brakah] of my progenitors [all those who have come before us, and were only blessed with part of what is perfected in our return to the LORD] unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they [these blessings] shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from [naziyr] his brethren.
27 Benjamin [the last child born through the LORD’s blessing upon Shiloh, the seed of Joseph – the right hand of God’s power] shall ravin as a wolf [shall tear in pieces the wolf that has scattered the one flock]: in the morning he shall devour [‘akal – with this word of understanding the LORD with us has given him] the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. [These last words refer us to Maher-shalal-hash-baz, the son spoken of in the beginning of Isaiah 8, his name meaning he hastes to the spoil and is quick to the prey. He is the son, foretold as coming through the virgin, later called Immanuel, as the advice, teaching, of the LORD comes, when men have formed a confederacy listening to the dead gods of the world.]

The word mowrah, only used three times, in its other appearances, comes as women commit their yet conceived children (Samson and Samuel) to the LORD, saying it (mowrah) will not come upon their head. It (mowrah) is said to be from the word mowra’, meaning “fear, by implication a fearful thing or deed,” and said to be from yare’, meaning the same. These words tell us of strength removed by fearing (revering) men above God, as seduction by which we leave Him to drink what flows from them.

This is a commitment I have made, to not listen and obey anyone telling of what we should look for or who we should look to to understand this ‘achariyth (these last days). I believe in the living God, alive with me, in me, who tells me all I need, which only He knows. And I ask, why do any look for another?

Isaiah 8
12 Say you not, A confederacy [of the corrupt, who commend each other for believing the same falsehoods covered in equivocations, fables created and taught during their endless fall away from God in the bottomless pit], to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear [yare’] you their fear [mowra’], nor be afraid.
13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear [mowra’], and let him be your dread.
14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15 And many among them [that are confederate with the communists in power in church and state] shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
16 Bind up the testimony, seal [chatham] the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hides his face [paniym – His presence] from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts [a man of war], which dwells in mount Zion.
19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits [of the known dead], and unto wizards [so-called experts] that peep, and that mutter [the ways of insanity and death]: should not a people seek unto their God? [should they be looking] for the living to the dead?
20 [shouldn’t they be looking] To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light [understanding, which is life] in them.

Judges 13
17 And Manoah [what rest? the father of Samson] said unto the angel of the LORD, What is your name, that when your sayings come to pass we may do you honor?
18 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why ask you thus after my name, seeing it is secret [pil’iy, only appearing elsewhere in Psalms 139:6]?

Isaiah 9
5 For every battle of the warrior [I Am, a man of war] is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

2 Timothy 2
1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that you have heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit you to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 You therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman that labors must be first partaker of the fruits [of understanding].
7 Consider what I say; and the LORD give you understanding in all things.
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David [the seed of Joseph] was raised [in me, Timothy, a man of God and His man of war] from the dead according to my gospel:
9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
13 If we believe not, yet he abides faithful: he cannot deny himself [alive in me, which I declare without equivocation].
14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the LORD that they strive not about [their own worthless] words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

1 Timothy 4
13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
14 Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy [these things the LORD spoke of me through His prophets], with the laying on [epithesis – Divine imposition of this understanding] of the hands of the presbytery [by the work of these elders].
15 Meditate upon these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all.
16 Take heed unto yourself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself, and them that hear you [hear and obey the Father speaking through His declared son who declares Him].

Psalms 139
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful [pil’iy] for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it [because it can only be revealed by You].
7 Whither shall I go from your spirit? or whither shall I flee from your presence [paniym]?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, you are there: if I make my bed [and sleep here] in hell, behold, you are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts [‘achariyth – in these last days] of the sea [of this last generation that become the first];
10 Even there shall your hand lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, Surely the darkness [men’s ignorance] shall cover me [shuwph – bruise my heal, while I with my heal bruise the head of the serpent]; even the night [understanding the cause of their ignorance] shall be light about me.
12 Yea, the darkness hides not from you; but the night shines as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to you [and heaven and hell occupy the same space and time, between which there remains a great gulf, which no man, going his own way, relying on his own corrupt understanding, can cross but by following the one among them, risen from the dead].
13 For you have possessed my reins: you have covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well [understanding life and death].
15 My substance [the flesh in which my soul dwells] was not hid from you, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth [here in hell].
16 Your eyes did see my substance [when my flesh was dead without your light, knowing you sent me lacking light, and planned to crown me with it], yet being unperfect; and in your book all my members were written, which in continuance [yown – in the day, when understanding came as light] were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them [when the elements of understanding remained therein uncongealed].
17 How precious also are your thoughts [these treasures, your grace] unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake [from death, my sleep in hell], I Am still with you.
19 Surely you will slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, you bloody men.
20 For they speak against you wickedly, and your enemies take your name in vain.
21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate you? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against you?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Judges 16
18 And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he has shown me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand.
19 And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him.
20 And she said, The Philistines be upon you, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist [knew] not that the LORD was departed from him.
21 But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza [the powers of church and state], and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.
22 Howbeit the hair of his head [the understanding in his head manifested outwardly] began to grow again after he was shaven.
23 Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon [the fish god – below the surface of the waters, word wherein their evil is hidden: as serpents and whales, men whose wide open mouths devour and swallow all who listen and follow their evil misleading of] their god [who is their belly], and to rejoice: for they said, Our god has delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.
24 And when the people saw him, they praised their god: for they said, Our god has delivered into our hands our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, which slew many of us.
25 And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport [act the fool and be mocked]. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.
26 And Samson said unto the lad [the one whose name is a secret] that held him by the hand, Suffer [nuwach – rest, during the time of separation] me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house stands, that I may lean upon them.
27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.
28 And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O LORD God, remember me, I pray you, and strengthen me, I pray you, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.
29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars [confusion and lies] upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.
30 And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.

Revelation 18
1 And after these things I saw another angel [a messenger manifesting the LORD’s presence in the message: the conversation above His mercy seat] come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened [given understanding] with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon [the confusion and the insane that now rule the old and corrupt world] the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils [daimon], and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations [who don’t know the present LORD] have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication [intercourse with her idols, who are men who’ve put themselves in God’s place and sit as kings of the earth], and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies [using her same spells, words meant to mislead and manipulate, mass marketing, to sell their wares].
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she has filled fill to her double.
7 How much she has glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she says in her heart, I sit a queen [fornicating with all the kings of the earth], and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the LORD God who judges her.

1 Samuel 5
1 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer [the stone of help – the rock from which the living waters flow] unto Ashdod [the powers in church and state].
2 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.
3 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.
4 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.
5 Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon’s house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

Please suffer my foolishness a little longer while I again digress: I had a dream last night in which I was walking through a forest, and everywhere I turned there were different types of serpents. I, at every meeting, avoided them. I then reached my house and thought I was safe until I, in my bedroom, encountered another. With my left hand, I grabbed this one behind its head, and it immediately bit my hand and wouldn’t let go. So, I grabbed it with my right hand, pulled it loose, and it bit that hand. Because it wouldn’t let go, I bent over, put my foot on its head, pulled my hand free, and killed it by crushing its head under my heel. I waited, not knowing if it was venomous, to see if I experienced any effect from the bites, and I didn’t.

I didn’t remember that dream until after I wrote the above, and when it came to mind, I realized its relevance.

The following is from the post of 18 May 2021:

Revelation 11
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our LORD, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever.
16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
17 Saying, We give you thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which are, and were, and are to come; because you have taken to you your great power, and have reigned.
18 And the nations were angry, and your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give reward unto your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.
19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightning, and voices, and thundering, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Zechariah 2
…flee from the land of the north [the darkness of ignorance], says the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, says the LORD.
7 Deliver yourself, O Zion, that dwell with the daughter of Babylon [confusion now turned mass delusion].
8 For thus says the LORD of hosts; After the glory has he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that touches you touches the apple of his eye.
9 For, behold, I will shake my hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me.
10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the LORD.
11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me unto you.
12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation [in His people].

2 Chronicles 5
1 Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the LORD was finished: and Solomon brought in all the things that David his father had dedicated; and the silver, and the gold, and all the instruments, put he among the treasures of the house of God.
2 Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.
3 Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which was in the seventh month.
4 And all the elders of Israel came; and the Levites took up the ark.
5 And they brought up the ark, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, these did the priests and the Levites bring up.
6 Also king Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel that were assembled unto him before the ark, sacrificed sheep and oxen, which could not be told nor numbered for multitude.
7 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD unto his place, to the oracle of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims:
8 For the cherubims spread forth their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubims covered the ark and the staves thereof above.
9 And they drew out the staves of the ark, that the ends of the staves were seen from the ark before the oracle; but they were not seen without. And there it is unto this day.
10 There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt.
11 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course:
12 Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them a hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)
13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying, “For he is good; for his mercy endures forever:” that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;
14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.

Friends, these are patterns written for our understanding. The message above is of one voice, heard from the LORD through His people speaking this word, as received directly from Him. It’s now that all God’s people should proclaim His presence and His wrath against the deceivers mixed among us, misleading the blind world into self-destruction.

The Hebrew word rendered “ark” is ‘arown, “from 717 (in the sense of gathering); a box.” The word it’s from (#717) is ‘arah, meaning “to pluck:–gather, pluck,” which only appears twice, Psalms 80:12 & Song of Solomon 5:1. The LORD intends to, in these two uses, give us an understanding that the ark of the testament, the LORD’s testimony from the oracle, above the mercy-seat, face to face, is to gather us, return us to Himself, by His shinning upon and through us His glory.

In Song of Solomon 5, Solomon begins, speaking of the garden (gan) into which the LORD has come and made it again as the garden of Eden, where He with us walks. It’s in this context He says in Isaiah 58:11, “And the LORD shall guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden [gan], and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.”

Isaiah 58
1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet [this word of God, the sword of the LORD], and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.
3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and you see not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and you take no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exact all your labors.
4 Behold, you fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: you shall not fast as you do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high [the fast is to be silent, so the LORD is heard].
5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? will you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?
7 Is it not to deal your bread [this word of God through you] to the hungry, and that you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? when you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh?
8 Then shall your light [understanding] break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your reward.
9 Then shall you call, and the LORD shall answer; you shall cry, and he shall say, Here I AM. If you take away from the midst of you the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
10 And if you draw out your soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall your light rise in obscurity, and your darkness be as the noon day:
11 And the LORD shall guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden [gan], and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
12 And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places: you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
13 If you turn away your foot from the sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shall honor him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words:
14 Then shall you delight yourself in the LORD; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.

Song of Solomon 5
1 I am come into my garden [gan], my sister, my spouse: I have gathered [‘arah] my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.
2 I sleep, but my heart wakes: it is the voice of my beloved that knocks, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks [[as Samson’s]] with the drops of the night [[this word from hevan sent in this time of darkness]].
3 I have put off my coat [[spotted by dead flesh]]; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet [[of the corruption picked in our journey through time]]; how shall I defile them?
4 My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.
5 I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped with myrrh, and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.
6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spoke: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.
7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.
8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if you find my beloved, that you tell him, that I am sick of love.
9 What is your beloved more than another beloved, O you fairest among women? what is your beloved more than another beloved, that you do so charge us?
10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chief among ten thousand.
11 His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.
12 His eyes are as the eyes of doves [[knowing this is the expected end reached]] by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.
13 His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh.
14 His hands are as gold rings set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires.
15 His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.
16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

Psalms 80
1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you that leads Joseph like a flock; you that dwell between the cherubims [hearing His voice speaking], shine forth.
2 Before [paniym – Your presence with] Ephraim [those upon whom this second blessing, fruitfulness, has come] and Benjamin [who have become Your right hand, Your power] and Manasseh [those who’ve forgotten God] stir up your strength, and come and save us.
3 Turn us again [shuwb], O God, and cause your face [paniym – presence] to shine; and we shall be saved.
4 O LORD God of hosts, how long will you be angry against the prayer of your people?
5 You feed them with the bread of tears; and give them tears to drink in great measure.
6 You make us a strife unto our neighbors: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 Turn us again [shuwb], O God of hosts, and cause your face [paniym – presence] to shine; and we shall be saved.
8 You have brought a vine out of Egypt: you have cast out the heathen, and planted it.
9 You prepared room before it [paniym – by Your presence], and did cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
12 Why have you then broken down her hedges [remove the protection of the garden], so that all they which pass by [‘abar – which reject the LORD’s message [[who think they can pass from death into life, from hell into heaven, hereby]]] the way [and destroy the ordered way] do pluck her [[[‘arah]] gather her fruit]? [[what rest? Leviticus 25:4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: you shall neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard. 5 That which grows of its own accord of your harvest you shall not reap, neither gather the grapes of your vine undressed {naziyr – during the time of His separation}: for it is a year of rest unto the land. Numbers 6: And this is the law of the Nazarite {naziyr}, when the days of his separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:]]
13 The boar out of the wood does waste it, and the wild beast of the field does devour it [the fruitfulness].
14 Return [shuwb], we beseech you, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
15 And the vineyard which your right hand has planted, and the branch that you made strong for yourself.
16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of your countenance [paniym – presence].
17 Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand, upon the son of man whom you made strong for yourself.
18 So will not we go back from you: quicken us, and we will call upon your name.
19 Turn us again [shuwb], O LORD God of hosts, cause your face [paniym – presence] to shine; and we shall be saved.

When the above speaks of the Shepherd who leads Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) like a flock, it refers to what is written of the same in Genesis 49, of the House of David, who we know is actually a son of Joseph, his family dwelling in Judah.

Psalms 132
1 LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:
2 How he swore unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4 I will not give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids,
5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, a habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah [where Rachel, mother of Joseph and Benjamin {Ephraim and Judah} is buried: the name {Ephratah or Ephrath} of Caleb’s wife, from where BethlehemJudah-Ephratah, derives its name – the same as Ephraim, both meaning fruitfulness]: we found it in the fields of the wood [where we dug into the deep].
7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
8 Arise, O LORD, into your rest; you, and the ark of your strength.
9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your saints shout for joy.
10 For your servant David’s sake turn not away the face of your anointed.
11 The LORD has sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of your body will I set upon your throne.
12 If your children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon your throne for evermore.
13 For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his habitation.
14 This is my rest forever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for my anointed.
18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
