Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

23 – 25 May 2024

Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

The above, Psalms 62:8, is the LORD, through David, commanding us to make Him our “refuge,” from the twenty times used word machaceh.

The same word (machaceh) is used in the previous verse, telling us our “refuge” is in God, who is the Rock of our strength. We understand the rock describes something firm on which we can rely, trusting it will not change. When personified, it represents the place from where words flow as advice (counsel) to be followed (obeyed).

Friends, we live in a time of mass insanity, when the majority of those in power, at war against the people at large they speak to, give advice that has (make evil decrees that have) no connection to reality. They tell us the economy is good while they intentionally drain life from it through confiscatory inflation, taxation, and interest rates. To demoralize us, the insane tell us good is evil, evil is good, wrong is right, right is wrong, normal is abnormal, and abnormal is normal. Their intention is depopulation through destructive policies (decrees) that weaponize institutions and industries: education, media, food, entertainment, religion, finance, health, and justice, all to destroy achievement and remove sanity from policies that lead to population increase through security in life, liberty, and property. In other words, these manically insane powers, by corrupting all language, are destroying (murdering) the world while (delusionally) believing they are its saviors. They are the antichrist, the many false Christs, false teachers, and false prophets, false rocks in church and state, of whom the LORD says, “Come out from among them that you be not partakers in their plagues.”

As we know, the word selah, meaning “suspension (of music [of the words you repeat]), i.e. pause,” speaks of stopping (words and actions) and thinking (critically) about what (things of critical importance) was just stated.

Psalms 62
1 Truly my soul waited upon God: from him comes my salvation [yshuw’ah – the true Jesus, Jehovah manifesting His presence in the flesh of those He sends as saviors with His good advice].
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved [by the false rocks in power].
3 How long will you imagine mischief [hathath – only used hear, meaning to assail and speak] against a man [in whom the LORD has chosen to manifest His presence in His words]? you shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall [the falling of which comes suddenly, in an instant] shall you be, and as a tottering fence [as the gate of hell ready to be trampled down by the LORD’s presence]
4 They [all the world’s powers] only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly [all humanity]. Selah.
5 My soul, wait you only upon God; for my expectation [the destruction of the spiritually wicked in power] is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus in me]: he is my defense; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge [machaceh], is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out [shaphak – pour out His word from] your heart [your minds] before him [paniym – as His true Rocks manifesting His presence, Jesus, alive in you]: God is a refuge [machaceh] for us. Selah.
9 Surely men of low degree are [led, advised, taught into] vanity [worthless in their thoughts], and men of high degree [who’ve led all into blinding darkness] are a lie: to be laid the balance [judged rightly], they are [when weighed against the LORD they are] altogether lighter than vanity [less than worthless].
10 Trust not in oppression [of those in power], and become not vain [worthless] in robbery: if riches [chayil – meaning “a force, whether of men, means or other resources; an army, wealth, virtue, valor, strength”] increase, set not your heart [make them not the foundation of your thoughts, things you think are your refuge] upon them.
11 God has spoken once; twice [before and after my death] have I heard this; that power [‘oz – “strength in various applications (force, security, majesty, praise)” to raise the dead] belongs unto God [alone].
12 Also unto you, O LORD, belongs mercy: for you render to every man according to his work.

Job 12
2 No doubt but you [my accusers] are the people [of vanity], and wisdom shall die [has died] with you [with your death].
3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yea, who [but the dead] knows not such things as these?
4 I Am as one [to whom wisdom has come again from the LORD] mocked of his neighbor, who calls upon God, and he answers him: the just upright [resurrected] man is laughed to scorn [by the dead].
5 He [without understanding] that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp [a guide in the darkness] despised [buwz – held in contempt and shamed] in the thought of him that is at ease [sha’anan – secured by the LORD].
6 The tabernacles of robbers [shadad – the dead] prosper, and they that provoke God are secure [battuchowth – putting their trust in worldly strength]; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly [this power by which they deceive themselves].
7 But ask now the beasts [bhemah – dumb flesh, those who were silent], and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air [who’ve risen into heaven by the LORD’s strength], and they shall tell you:
8 Or speak to the earth [where these things are manifested into reality, ending the old and corrupt and beginning the new], and it shall teach you: and the fishes of the sea [My elect remnant living among humanity at large, below its surface in this deep] shall declare unto you [bringing your end suddenly, in an instant].
9 Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD has wrought this [by which He says, “Here I Am”]?
10 In whose hand [work] is the soul of every living thing, and the breath [life] of all mankind.
11 Does not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?
12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.
13 With him is wisdom and strength, he has counsel and understanding.
14 Behold, he breaks down, and it cannot be built again: he shuts up a man, and there can be no opening.
15 Behold, he withholds the waters [of heaven], and they dry up: also he send them out, and they [His words, these words] overturn the earth.
16 With him is strength [‘oz] and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his.
17 He leads counselors away spoiled, and makes the judges fools.
18 He looses the bond [of death] of kings, and gird [prepares] their loins with a girdle [these provisions, with which He crowns them].
19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthrows the mighty.
20 He removes away the speech of the trusty [who’ve refused these waters], and taketh away the understanding of the aged.
21 He pours contempt upon princes, and weakens the strength of the mighty.
22 He discovers [these] deep things out of darkness [hidden in men’s ignorance], and bringeth out to light [understanding] the shadow of death [which is the ignorance of men in power].
23 He increases the nations [the population of those who haven’t known Him], and destroys them [by the hand those they choose to follow]: he enlarges [scattering them abroad] the nations, and straitens them again [nachah – “to guide; by implication, to transport (into exile, or as colonists)”].
24 He taketh away the heart [the sound mind] of the chief of the people of the earth, and cause them to wander [by going their own ignorant way] in a wilderness where there is no way.
25 They grope in the dark [following their own ignorance] without light [understanding], and he makes them to stagger like a drunken man.

The word nachah, speaking of when the LORD leads (by good advice) His people, is used in this sense in the passages below.

Exodus 15
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host [the army of darkness] has he cast [yarah – flowed His teaching against] into the sea [humanity at large]: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea [at this limit reached, where their proud waves are stayed].
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone [silenced].
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths [understanding held in the darkened deep] were congealed in the heart [minds] of the sea [humanity at large].
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind [and Your Spirit, You unknown, moved upon the face of the darkened waters], the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them [like Korah, as in Revelation 12:16].
13 You in your mercy have led [nachah] forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength unto your holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear [shama’ – and obey], and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina [the invading army].
15 Then the dukes of Edom [the leaders of these enemies among us at war with us] shall be amazed; the mighty men [‘ayil] of Moab [whose mouths are the gates of hell], trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall [be humiliated and] melt away.
16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still [damam – silent] as a stone; till your people pass over [‘abar – passover death into life], O LORD, till the people pass over [‘abar – into life], which you have purchased [qanah – resurrected in Your new creation].
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain [Your now perfected government] of your inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which you have made [Your new creation] for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign forever and ever.

Deuteronomy 32
1 Give ear, O you heavens, and I will speak; and hear [shama’ – and obey], O earth, the words of my mouth.
2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain [from the cloud of heaven], my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass [bringing life from the earth]:
3 Because I will publish the name [identity] of the LORD: ascribe you greatness unto our God.
4 He is the Rock [from where His word flows His teaching, in which we can trust], his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot [indelible mark] is not the spot [indelible mark] of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
6 Do you thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he your father that has bought you? has he not made you, and established you?
7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you.
8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
9 For the LORD’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them, bears them on her wings:
12 So the LORD alone did lead [nachah] him, and there was no strange god with him.
13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the Rock [His presence manifested in the flesh speaking and working], and oil [His anointing] out of the flinty Rock [Christ];
14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan [the fruitfulness of His flock], and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and you did drink the pure blood of the grape.
15 But Jeshurun [His people in prosperity that comes from following {obeying} His advice] waxed fat, and kicked [against His leading]: you are waxed fat [in prosperity], you are grown thick, you are covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation [yshuw’ah – Joshua: Jesus: Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the perpetual son of His choosing].
16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations [they created and put in His place] provoked they him to anger.
17 They sacrificed unto devils [misleaders telling them their abomination are their gods], not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared 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 – in these last days] 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 [their worthless words and ways]: and I will move them to jealousy with those [the elect remnant I have chosen] 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 [as it does], and shall consume the [old and corrupt] earth with her increase [as it has], and set on fire the [corrupt] foundations of the mountains [their current, devil possessed, church and state governments].

Job 38
16 Have you entered into the springs of the sea [these life-giving waters intended to save all who receive and obey them]? or have you walked in the search of the depth [the deep understanding reserved therein]?
17 Have the gates of death [and hell] been opened unto you? or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death?
18 Have you perceived the breadth [the end and beginning] of the earth? declare if you know it all.
19 Where is the way where light dwell [in those to whom God alone gives it]? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof [with the wise and powerful of this world],
20 That you shouldest take it to the bound thereof [the end of ignorance, in these last days of darkness], and that you shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
21 Know you it, because you were then [thereby] born? or because the number of your days is great?
22 Have you entered into the treasures of the snow [My word I reserved, froze, in the cloud for this moment]? or have you seen the treasures of the hail [this understanding from there sent against the current corrupt crop misleaders],
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble [tsar – by enemies in our midst, as tyrants in power], against the day of battle and war [which none can any longer doubt is raging around us]?
24 By what way is the light parted [into the many colors of the bow now seen in the cloud], which scatters the east wind [The LORD’s Spirit working, unseen moving] upon the earth?
25 Who has [rightly] divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters [who, as I Am, has sent these words revealing men’s trespasses beyond the LORD’s set limits], or a way for the lightning [understanding to come against them from heaven] of thunder [qowl – by LORD’s voice heard from there];
26 To cause it to rain [these waters from heaven] on the earth, where no [living] man is; on the wilderness [the earth the dead have made desolate: without form and void], wherein there is no man [with this light, which is life];
27 To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth [on this third day of creation]?
28 Has the rain a father? or who has begotten the drops of dew [this word that now appears on earth]?
29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who has gendered it [made it bring forth children]?
30 The waters are hid as with a stone [I Am, the Rock through whom it flows from the LORD], and the face of the deep [my presence revealed from where it] is frozen.
31 Can you bind the sweet influences [qashar ma’adannah – compact into a group, referring to the madad, the end of the course plotted] of Pleiades [kiymah – a constellation of seven celestial lights], or loose the bands [open the understanding] of Orion [kciyl – of the constellations]?
32 Can you bring forth Mazzaroth [the true meaning in the Zodiac, the plan of God’s salvation therein presented and passed on verbally, before the written word] in his season [at this appointed time]? or can you guide [nachah – transport] Arcturus [‘ash – Ursa Major, the fold, and the great flock – referring to Asher as spoken of in Deuteronomy 33:24 – 29] with his sons?
33 Know you the ordinances of heaven? can you set the dominion thereof [when heaven rules over the earth, when I establish My government here and now] in the earth?
34 Can you lift up your voice to the clouds [where My word is reserved for this time of war], that abundance of waters may cover you?
35 Can you send lightnings [this understanding from the cloud], that they may go and say unto you, Here we are [as My words say “Here I Am”]?
36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart [mind]?
37 Who can number [caphar – declare in writing] the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay [stop] the bottles of heaven [to keep this understanding there],
38 When the dust [the ruin of the earth] grows into hardness, and the clods [regeb] cleave fast together?
39 Will you hunt the prey for the lion [of Judah]? or fill the appetite of the young lions [“I and the children the LORD has given me are for signs and wonders” among His people],
40 When they couch [shachach – humble themselves and become obedient] in their dens, and abide in the covert [cukkah – their booths: tabernacles] to lie in wait [for their LORD]?
41 Who provides for the raven [those covered in the darkness of their own ignorance] his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander [into apostasy: the darkness of ignorance] for lack of meat [without this deep understanding only He provides].

Deuteronomy 33
1 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.
2 And he said, The LORD [Jehovah] came from Sinai [against thorns – the misleader mixed among us], and rose up from Seir [against the rulers of Edom – devils ruling over us] unto them; he shined [sent His understanding as light] forth from mount Paran [clarity in which His presence is clearly seen], and he came with ten thousands of saints [as Enoch prophesied, saying, “Behold, the LORD comes with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” From Jude 1:14 & 15, as in Revelation 14:1]: from his right hand went a fiery law [dath] for them.
3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in your hand: and they sat down at your feet; everyone shall receive of your words [and thereby become the LORD’s children].
4 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.
5 And he was king in Jeshurun [among the LORD’s people who by obeying these things prospered], when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were gathered together [into ONE BODY].

24 And of Asher [happy – those who’ve found the true happiness they’ve pursued] he said, Let Asher be blessed [happy] with children [who are now born into this new earth, wherein dwells righteousness]; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil [shemem – walk in the way of his anointing].
25 Your shoes shall be iron and brass; and as your days [of old], so shall your strength be [risen here and now again into life].
26 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun [by whom His people prosper], who rides upon the heaven [with full understanding] in your help, and in his excellency on the sky.
27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before you; and shall say, Destroy them.
28 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone [without enemies mixed among them]: the fountain of Jacob [these living waters] shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew [when the word of God appears on the earth].
29 Happy are you, O Israel: who is like unto you, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of your help, and who is the sword of your excellency! and your enemies shall be found liars unto you; and you shall tread upon their high places.

The LORD only uses the word nachah twice, in Isaiah 57:18 & 58:11, after its appearance in Proverbs 18:16, all flowing hereafter.

Proverbs 18
1 Through desire a man [as was woman desired to know wisdom, and therefor ate from the tree – Genesis 3:6], having separated himself [parad – from the LORD, into the advice of serpents], seeks [searches] and intermeddles [mixing their own ignorance] with all wisdom.
2 A fool has no delight in understanding [because it opposes his desire], but that his heart may discover [find ways to justify] itself [his own creation: opinions and delusions].
3 When [by this the fool becomes] the wicked comes, then comes also contempt [of wisdom and understanding], and with ignominy reproach [this shame exposed in words].
4 The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters [showing the deep thoughts of the mind], and the wellspring [words] of wisdom as a flowing brook [flowing to any who desire it].
5 It is not good to accept [exalt] the person [paniym – the manifestation of wickedness in the words] of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
6 A fool’s lips enter into contention [with the righteous], and his mouth calls for strokes [the punishment of those opposing wickedness].
7 A fool’s mouth [speaking words of ignorance] is his destruction, and his lips are the snare [condemning] of his soul.
8 The words of a talebearer [slanderer, false accuser] are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly [of hell].
9 He also that is slothful in his work [refusing to follow {obey} and take up His cross] is brother to him that is a great waster [destroyer all that is good and normal].
10 The name [identity] of the LORD [manifested in His words] is a strong tower [migdal – Micah 4: 8 And you, O tower {migdal} of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto you shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem. 9 Now why do you cry out aloud? is there no king in you? is your counselor perished? for pangs have taken you as a woman in travail.]: the righteous runs into it, and is safe.
11 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city [which he believes will protect him], and as a high wall in his own conceit [thinking he wise he thinks he is protected].
12 Before destruction the heart [mind] of man is haughty [in pride he exalts himself], and before [paniyn – the LORD’s presence, His Spirit in us bringing our spirit to life, which is] honor is humility.
13 He that answers [shuwb] a matter [dabar – returns words] before he hears [shama’ – before he hears it from the LORD, and obeying repeats it as he received] it, it is folly and shame unto him.
14 The spirit of a man will sustain [restrain him] his infirmity [his weakness, when he is without understanding]; but a wounded [nake’ – a four times used word referring us to Isaiah 16] spirit who can bear [who can raise it up]? [Isaiah 16:6 We have heard of the pride of Moab {men whose mouths are the gates of hell}; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so {shall not stand}. 7 Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab, every one shall howl: for the foundations {of these men’s minds} of Kirhareseth {wall of potsherds, which protects against nothing} shall you mourn; surely they are stricken {nake’ – wounded by their own pride and haughtiness}.]
15 The heart of the prudent gets knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16 A man’s gift [giving these treasures as the LORD has given them] makes room for him, and brings him before great men.
17 He that is first in his own cause seems just [saying he has wisdom and knowledge]; but his neighbor comes and searches him.
18 The lot [gowral – referring us to Proverbs 16:32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that rules his spirit than he that taketh a city. 33 The lot {gowral} is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.] causes contentions to cease, and parts [parad – shows who is joined with the LORD and who is separated from Him, into following the advice of serpents] between the mighty.
19 A brother offended [whose contentions never cease because of the pride and haughtiness of his spirit] is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle [keeping the LORD out, even when He has cast the lot and shown Himself present and joined with the one with whom the contend: I Am].
20 A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth [words, good or evil, speaking life or death]; and with the increase [profiting from his talents, these treasures the LORD has given us] of his lips shall he be filled.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love [with] it [the tongue] shall eat the fruit thereof.
22 Whoso finds a wife [woman – a faithful church] finds a good thing, and obtains favor of the LORD.
23 The poor [without worldly power of force] use entreaties [humble words]; but the rich answer roughly [with the violence of “dark sentences:” evil decrees by which men now rule the world].
24 A man that has friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend [I Am] that sticks closer than a brother.

Isaiah 57
1 The righteous perish [wander away, loose themselves, from the apostate church and state], and no man lays it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come [upon these corrupt institutions].
2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest [in death’s sleep] in their beds, each one [by themselves] walking in his uprightness.
3 But draw near hither, you sons of the sorceress [who put yourselves in the LORD’s place, who with your words manipulate and control those following your advice into going your evil way], the seed of the adulterer and the whore [churches that left the LORD to follow these sorcerers].
4 Against whom do you sport yourselves? against whom make you a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are you not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.
5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks [the strongholds of the false Christs men follow]?
6 Among the smooth stones of the stream is your portion; they, they are your lot [gawral – from LORD]: even to them have you poured a drink offering [of evil advice], you have offered a meat offering [your own understanding]. Should I receive comfort in these?
7 Upon a lofty and high mountain [in the governments of church and state] have you set your bed [where you sleep in death]: even thither went you up to offer sacrifice.
8 Behind the doors also and the posts have you set up your remembrance: for you have discovered yourself to another than me, and are gone up; you have enlarged your bed, and made you a covenant with them; you loved their bed where you saw it.
9 And you went to the king with ointment, and did increase your perfumes, and did send your messengers far off, and did debase yourself even unto hell [where you now find yourselves].
10 You are wearied in the greatness of your way; yet said you not, [In your ways] There is no hope: you have found the life [and death] of your hand [in your words and works]; therefore you were not grieved.
11 And of whom have you been afraid or feared, that you have lied, and have not remembered me, nor laid it to your heart? have not I held my peace even of old [and haven’t spoken to you as long and you and your ilk put yourselves in My place], and you feared me not?
12 I will declare your righteousness, and your works [that they are wickedness]; for they shall not profit you.
13 When you cry, let your companies deliver you; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity [their own worthlessness] shall take them: but he that put his trust in me shall possess the land [‘erets – the earth], and shall inherit my holy mountain [My new Government here on the earth];
14 And shall say, Cast you up, cast you up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling-block out of the way of my people.
15 For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
16 For I will not contend forever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.
17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on forwardly [twisting and perverting truth] in the way of his heart.
18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead [nachah] him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.
19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off [rachowq – now in this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men in power], and to him that is near [here in this time], says the LORD; and I will heal him.
20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
21 There is no peace, says my God, to the wicked.

Isaiah 28
14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, you scornful men, that rule this people which is 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: for we have made lies our refuge [machaceh], 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 [the Rock, I Am], a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste [and flee away in shame].
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge [machaceh] 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 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 – to understand it is the voice of Jehovah heard and obeyed].
20 For the bed [of those sleeping in death and hell] is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself [to hide] in it.
21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon [when He called His people at large to join Him in the destruction of those who’ve caused strife among them throughout history], that he may do his work [declaring His word as His presence], his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act [that only he knows].
22 Now therefore be you not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the LORD God of hosts a consumption [kalah], even determined [charats] upon the whole earth.
23 Give you ear, and hear [shama’ – obey it, because it is] my voice; hearken, and hear [shama’ – and obey it, because it is] my speech.

Isaiah 58
1 Cry aloud [as the LORD’s messengers], spare not, lift up your voice like a [last] trumpet, 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? [As referred to in Isaiah 42:19, the LORD’s perfect servant, His messenger, who is blind and deaf to the corruption men created and put in His place.] Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exact all your labors [Going your own ways, saying you have done all these things in My name, while you oppose Me and refuse My words – see Matthew 7:21].
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.
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 [abstaining from your own words] 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 the LORD has given us] 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 [those who are our ONE BODY]?
8 Then shall your light [understanding] break forth [upon the enemies] as the morning [of this new creation of heaven and earth], and your health shall spring forth [as new life] speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you [paniym – shall manifest My presence]; the glory of the LORD [in you] 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 [joining you with the wicked in power in church and state], the putting forth of the finger [falsely accusing the innocent just because they indict the wicked in power], and speaking vanity [worthlessness];
10 And if you draw out your soul to the hungry [who need this word], and satisfy the afflicted soul [with this word]; then shall your light rise [then shall this understanding be exalted] in obscurity, and your darkness be as the [and where ignorance was it shall be as bright as] noon day:
11 And the LORD shall guide [nachah] you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of [life giving] 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 [when I interrupt your work to correct you back onto this right path], 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 [but speaking the words I give you]:
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.

Psalms 5
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto you will I pray.
3 My voice shall you hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto you, and will look up.
4 For you are not a God that has pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with you.
5 The foolish shall not stand in your sight: you hate all workers of iniquity.
6 You shall destroy them that speak leasing [falsehood]: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, I will come into your house in the multitude of your mercy: and in your fear will I worship toward your holy temple.
8 Lead [nachah] me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before my face [paniym – in Your presence].
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulcher [speaking death]; they flatter with their tongue.
10 Destroy you them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all those that put their trust in you rejoice: let them ever shout [your words] for joy, because you defend them: let them also that love your name [idenity] be joyful in you.
12 For you, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor will you compass him as with a shield.

Make me to go in the path of your commandments; for therein do I delight.

19 – 21 May 2024

Make me to go in the path of your commandments; for therein do I delight.

The above, as I have come to begin all these messages, realizing the LORD is with me always, is me opening His word (today to Psalms 119:35), not randomly, but as He in me, supernaturally by my hand, opens it, and from there begins to speak, leading me, us, on His path to light (understanding).

The Hebrew words rendered “Make me to go in the path” are darak nathiyb, meaning “to tread; by implication, to walk; also to string a bow (by treading on it in bending),” and “to tramp; a (beaten) track.”

In the first of these (darak), the LORD refers us back to the previous post and Isaiah 42:16, where He tells us it’s a way the blind haven’t known, into which He says, “I will lead them.”

Isaiah 42
16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them [dakar] in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light [will reveal to them these things they haven’t known because they’ve been hidden in the ignorance men created and taught] before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images [men created and put in My place], that say to the molten images [they formed], You are our gods.
18 Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.
19 Who is blind, but my servant [not seeing anything that the corrupt world sees]? or deaf [not hearing the corrupt words of men who’ve destroyed all truth], as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’s servant?
20 Seeing many things, but you observe not [the idols of men]; opening the ears, but he hears not [the things of men].
21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable.
22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore [shuwb – return the understanding you have taken away].
23 Who among you will give ear to this [and hear the voice of the LORD]? who will hearken and hear [shama’ – and obey] for the time to come [‘achown – now in these last days of darkness]?
24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned [chata’ – to miss {His presence}]? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.

This last verse defines the crux of the matter, which takes us to the first two uses of the word mitsvah, rendered “commandments,” defining (in Genesis 26:5 and Exodus 15:26) the prime command (obeying the voice of the LORD), even before any written commandments.

Genesis 26
3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for unto you, and unto your seed [of the promise], I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore unto Abraham your father; [In Genesis 22:17 & 18, saying “That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed {shama’} my voice {qowl}.”]
4 And I will make your seed [Isaac’s – the son of the promise that is by faith in the Father with us speaking to us] to multiply [those who have the same faith] as the stars of heaven, and will give unto your seed all these countries; and in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
5 Because that Abraham obeyed [shama’ – heard the voice as the LORD’s and became obedient to] my voice [qowl], and kept [shamar] my charge [mishmereth – to guard and preserve My words from men’s corruption], my commandments [mitsvah], my statutes, and my laws [towrah – the word’s first use, the Law, to this point only spoken].

Exodus 15
1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spoke, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously [ga’ah – a five times used word speaking of the pattern of victory over the enemies {Edom} mixed among us, and the mouth of those {Moab} that are the gates of hell]: the horse and his rider has he thrown [ramah – deceived] into the sea.
2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh, therein hidden from the ignorant]: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation [in my, our, flesh]; my father’s God, and I will exalt him [His voice above all others].
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host [the army of darkness] has he cast [yarah – flowed His teaching against] into the sea [humanity at large]: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea [at this limit reached, where their proud waves are stayed].
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone [silenced].
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths [understanding held in the darkened deep] were congealed in the heart [minds] of the sea [humanity at large].
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind [and Your Spirit, You unknown, moving upon the face of the darkened waters], the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them [like Korah, as in Revelation 12:16].
13 You in your mercy have led forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength unto your holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear [shama’ – and obey], and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina [the invading army].
15 Then the dukes of Edom [the leaders of these enemies among us at war with us] shall be amazed; the mighty men [‘ayil] of Moab [whose mouths are the gates of hell], trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall [be humiliated and] melt away.
16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still [damam – silent] as a stone; till your people pass over [‘abar – passover death into life], O LORD, till the people pass over [’abar – into life], which you have purchased [qanah – resurrected in Your new creation].
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain [Your now perfected government] of your inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which you have made [Your new creation] for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign forever and ever.
19 For the horse of Pharaoh [the great house of wickedness in power] went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.
20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
21 And Miriam answered them, Sing you to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously [ga’ah]; the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur [wall about them – the lies they learned under their oppressors]; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah [bitter], they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter [mar – polluted with wickedness, as now in this land]: therefore the name of it was called Marah. [Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter {mar} for sweet {mathowq}, and sweet {matowq} for bitter {mar}! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!]
24 And the people murmured [luwn – remained in ignorance] against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD showed him [yarah – flowed waters to Him from] a tree [of life], which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet [mathaq – a five times used word wherein the LORD refers us to its uses in Psalms 55:14 and Proverbs 9:17 – see below]: there he made for them a statute [choq – a decree] and an ordinance [mishpat – judgment], and there he proved them [nacah – to make them believe He was present with them, speaking from the tree of life],
26 And said, If you will diligently hearken to [shama’ – obey] the voice [qowl] of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments [mitsvah], and keep [shamar – guard and protect from corruption] all his statutes [choq – the things here decreed], I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians [your oppressors, the tyrant is power]: for I am the LORD that heals [rapha’] you.
27 And they came to Elim [the palms – from ‘aiyl, as in verse 15 above; here the mighty man, the tree, strengthened by understanding received, who prevails against the gates of hell], where were twelve [the perfection of God’s Government] wells of water [men in power from whom His word flows righteousness], and threescore and ten [God’s setting all things in their right order] palm trees: and they encamped there by the [life-giving] waters.

Psalms 55
1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not yourself from my supplication.
2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror has overwhelmed me.
6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove [Oh that fables men created about this end time were true, the sweet words of the false prophet who’ve led God’s people into their fall away from truth]! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
7 Lo, then would I wander far off [rachaq – flee from this time when the earth is ruled by evil decree], and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest [ca’ar – the whirlwind from where the LORD’s word is heard and fulfilled].
9 Destroy, O LORD, and divide their tongues: for I have [in their words] seen violence and strife in the city.
10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof [speaking their fables and causing God’s people to trust in their false words]: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
13 But it was you, a man my equal [‘erek – who before set things in their right order], my guide [‘alluwph – a leader of God’s people], and my acquaintance [yada’ – one who should know better].
14 We took sweet [mathaq] counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company. [1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists {resisting and opposing this word of God}; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 20 But you have an unction from the Holy One, and you know all things.]
15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell [let the earth swallow them]: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
18 He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abides of old. Selah. Because they have no changes [chaliyphah – they refuse to come from death into life, refuse to put off corruption: their garment spotted by the flesh], therefore they fear not God.
20 He has put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he has broken his covenant.
21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
22 Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. [1 Thessalonians 3: 8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the LORD.]
23 But you, O God, shall bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in you.

Proverbs 9
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
11 For by me your days shall be multiplied, and the years of your life shall be increased.
12 If you be wise, you shall be wise for yourself: but if you scorn, you alone shall bear it.
13 A foolish woman [churches led away by false prophets and false teachers, teaching that feelings provoked by fables should outweigh a sound mind able to critically think] is clamorous: she is simple, and knows nothing.
14 For she sits at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,
15 To call passengers who go right on their ways:
16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that want understanding, she says to him,
17 Stolen [ganah – deceiving] waters are sweet [mathaq], and bread eaten in secret [not knowing it is corrupted by deception] is pleasant [na’em – is easy to agree with {because of its sweetness}].
18 But he knows not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

It is of these men and women the LORD speaks in the other two uses of the word mathaq, in Job 20:12 & 21:33.

Job 20
5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
6 Though his excellency mount up to the heavens [saying they are places where understanding is found], and his head reach unto the clouds [where it is reserved];
7 Yet he shall perish forever like his own dung [the excrement they teach]: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
8 He shall fly away as a dream [like their false teaching, which shall be removed from the earth], and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night [the creation of the ignorant].
9 The eye also which saw him shall see him no more [there false teaching]; neither shall his place [where understanding should be found] any more behold him.
10 His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.
11 His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust [the ruin of the earth under their false teaching and misleading].
12 Though wickedness be sweet [mathaq] in his mouth, though he hide it [deception] under his tongue;
13 Though he spare it [chamal – though he speaks of compassion and sympathy], and forsake it not; but keep it [deception with malice] still within his mouth:
14 Yet his meat [his deep understanding] in his bowels is turned [to excrement when his speaks it], it is the gall [mrorah] of asps within him [it’s the bitterness of a serpents mouth].
15 He has swallowed down riches [these treasures of the LORD he holds in the belly of hell], and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.

Job 21
27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which you wrongfully imagine against me.
28 For you say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked? [when you know where I Am and where you are.]
29 Have you not asked them that go by the way [as if you don’t know]? and do you not know their tokens [have you realized yet what these are signs of],
30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.
31 Who shall declare his way to his face [who will declare the LORD’s way is in manifesting His presence in the day of His wrath and the destruction of the wicked]? and who shall repay him what he has done [‘asah – what He has made, accomplishing His new creation]?
32 Yet shall he [the wicked] be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb [among the dead].
33 The clods of the valley [the hardness of the earth without the LORD’s word from the clouds] shall be sweet [mathaq] unto him, and every man shall draw after him [all that receive their sweet word of deception shall be drawn into death with them], as there are innumerable [dead] before him [paniym – present with them in hell].
34 How then comfort you me in vain, seeing in your answers there remains falsehood?

The word rendered “clods” in verse 33 above is regeb, with only appears one other time, in Job 38:38 as the LORD is speaking to him from the whirlwind (ca’ar).

Job 38
33 Know you the ordinances of heaven? can you set the dominion thereof [when heaven rules over the earth, when I establishes My government here] in the earth?
34 Can you lift up your voice to the clouds [where My word is reserved for this time of war], that abundance of waters may cover you?
35 Can you send lightnings [this understanding from the cloud], that they may go and say unto you, Here we are [as My words say “Here I Am”]?
36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart [mind]?
37 Who can number [caphar – declare in writing] the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay [stop] the bottles of heaven [to keep this understanding there],
38 When the dust [the ruin of the earth] grows into hardness, and the clods [regeb] cleave fast together?
39 Will you hunt the prey for the lion [of Judah]? or fill the appetite of the young lions [“I and the children the LORD has given me are for signs and wonders“ among His people],
40 When they couch [shachach – humble themselves and become obedient] in their dens, and abide in the covert [cukkah – their booths: tabernacles] to lie in wait [for their LORD]?
41 Who provides for the raven [those covered in the darkness of their own ignorance] his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander [in the darkness] for lack of meat [without this deep understand only He provides].

The word m’ownah, rendered “den” in verse 40 above, only used nine times, refers us to its first use in Deuteronomy 33:27 and later to Amos 3:4.

Deuteronomy 33
26 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun [under whose rule we prosper], who rides upon the heaven in your help, and in his excellency on the sky.
27 The eternal God is your refuge [m’ownah], and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before you; and shall say, Destroy them.
28 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land [‘erets – the earth] of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.
29 Happy are you, O Israel: who is like unto you, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of your help, and who is the sword of your excellency! and your enemies shall be found liars unto you; and you shall tread upon their high places.

Amos 3
3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed [on the time and place]?
4 Will a lion [of Judah] roar in the forest, when he has no prey? will a young lion [the children the LORD has given me] cry out of his den [m’ownah], if he have taken nothing [opening their mouths with the meat he provided]?
5 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is [where no trap is set] for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all?
6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil [ra’] in a city, and the LORD has not done it [‘asah – made it understood at the agreed time]?
7 Surely the LORD God will do nothing, but he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets.
8 The lion [of Judah] has roared [His voice as the trumpet sounding], who will not fear? the LORD God has spoken, who can but prophesy [speak His revealed word as commanded]?

Psalms 119
33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
35 Make me to go [darak] in the path [nathiyb] of your commandments [mitsvah]; for therein do I delight.
36 Incline my heart unto your testimonies, and not to covetousness.
37 Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken you me [into life] in your way.
38 Establish your word unto your servant, who is devoted to your fear.
39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for your judgments are good.
40 Behold, I have longed after your precepts: quicken me [to life] in your righteousness.
41 Let your mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even your salvation, according to your word.
42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproaches me: for I trust in your word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in your judgments.
44 So shall I keep your law continually forever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek your precepts.
46 I will speak of your testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
47 And I will delight myself in your commandments [mitsvah], which I have loved.
48 My hands also will I lift up unto your commandments [mitsvah], which I have loved; and I will meditate in your statutes.

Jeremiah 11
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying,
2 Hear [shama’ – and obey] you the words of this covenant, and speak [these words I’ve given you] unto the men of Judah [the current crop of corrupt leaders], and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem [God’s people at large who follow and obey these leaders];
3 And say you unto them, Thus says the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeys [shama’] not the words of this covenant,
4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey [shama’] my voice [qowl], and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall you be my people, and I will be your God:
5 That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O LORD.
6 Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear [shama’ – and obey] you the words of this covenant, and do them.
7 For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey [shama’] my voice.
8 Yet they obeyed [shama’] not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil [ra’] heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do: but they did them not.
9 And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear [shama’ – and obey] my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
11 Therefore thus says the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil [ra’] upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken [shama’ – and obey and give their requests] unto them.
12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble [ra’].
13 For according to the number of your cities were your gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have you set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal.
14 Therefore pray not you for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear [shama’ – will not obey or give them what they request] them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble [ra’].
15 What has my beloved to do in my house, seeing she has wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from you? when you do evil [ra’], then you rejoice.
16 The LORD called your name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he has kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.
17 For the LORD of hosts, that planted you, has pronounced evil [ra’] against you, for the evil [ra’] of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal.
18 And the LORD has given me knowledge of it, and I know it: then you showed me their doings.
19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree [of life] with the fruit [lechem – the bread] thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.
20 But, O LORD of hosts, that judges righteously, that tries the reins and the heart, let me see your vengeance on them: for unto you have I revealed my cause.
21 Therefore thus says the LORD of the men of Anathoth [whose prayers the LORD answers, but not giving them what they requested], that seek your life, saying, Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that you die not by our hand:
22 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth against] them: the young men shall die by the sword [the word they refuse to hear as My word and obey]; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine [without this bread]:
23 And there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring evil [ra’] upon the men of Anathoth [which is my answer to their prayer], even the year of their visitation [pquddah – now in MY presence as the Chief Overseer of the earth].

Jeremiah 25
27 Therefore you shall say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Drink you [your own evil words], and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword [this word they refuse] which I will send among you.
28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at your hand to drink, then shall you say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts; You shall certainly drink [your own evil words].
29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil [ra’a’] on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword [this word to be heard] upon all the inhabitants of the earth, says the LORD of hosts.
30 Therefore prophesy you against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation [ma’own]; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout [from His archangel, which is as a trumpet sounding], as they that tread [darak] the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth [ending the old and beginning the new]; for the LORD has a controversy [riyb – about who is best suited to rule the earth, the LORD who made it or those who’ve brought it to ruin] with the nations [who haven’t known Him], he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword [this word they refuse shall be manifested into reality, as warned], says the LORD.
32 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil [ra’] shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind [ca’ar – from where the LORD’s voice is heard] shall be raised up [‘uwr – awakened] from the coasts of the [end of the old and beginning the new] earth.
33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the [old] earth even unto the other end [the beginning] of the [new] earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they [their animated dead flesh] shall be dung upon the ground.
34 Howl, you shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes [of the old earth you’ve brought to ruin], you principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and you shall fall like a pleasant vessel [become a desolation].
35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.
36 A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard: for the LORD has spoiled their pasture.
37 And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
38 He has forsaken his covert, as the lion: for their land is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and because of his fierce anger.

Isaiah 63
1 Who is this that comes from Edom [from the battle against the enemies mixed among us], with dyed garments from Bozrah [from the sheepfold, the strong hold of the enemy]? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength [His understanding]? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
2 Wherefore are you red in your apparel, and your garments like him that treads [darak] in the winefat [gath – only used five time, meaning “a wine-press (or vat for holding the grapes in pressing them)”]?
3 I have trodden [darak] the winepress [of My wrath] alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread [darak] them in my anger, and trample [ramac – a nineteen time used word referring us to Ezekiel 34:18, where the reason is given why the LORD alone tread these grapes, because all other have fouled those they tread which unwashed feet: the corruption picked up in the journey] them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.
4 For the day of vengeance is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore my own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
6 And I will tread down [buwc – referring to its use below in verseb18] the people in my anger, and make them drunk [under the influence of the fouled wine they’ve consumed] in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to [remove the understanding of] the earth.
7 I will mention the loving-kindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all [these treasures] that the LORD has bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he has bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude [of His divine charity] of his loving-kindnesses.
8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Savior.
9 In all their affliction he was [I Am] afflicted, and the angel [mal’ak – messenger] of his presence [paniym – in whom He manifests His presence] saved them: in his love [long suffering to give this word and declare it is His presence alive in me working and speaking unknown] and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit [among them working and speaking unknown]: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he [in whose flesh is He now manifested, from whom His word is poured out, which evidence says “hear I Am”] that put his holy Spirit within him [Moses, the flesh in which the LORD chose to lead them]?
12 That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them [as He does this day, in these last days of darkness], to make himself an everlasting name [an identity that cannot be denied]?
13 That led them through the deep [revealing these treasure from heaven], as a horse in the wilderness [with the strength to carry them in this time of desolation], that they should not stumble?
14 As a beast goes down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD caused him to rest: so did you lead your people, to make yourself a glorious name.
15 Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of your holiness and of your glory: where is your zeal and your strength, the sounding of your bowels [His word from within my flesh] and of your mercies toward me? are they restrained?
16 Doubtless you are our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: you, O LORD, are our father, our redeemer; your name is from everlasting.
17 O LORD, why have you made us to err from your ways, and hardened our heart from your fear? Return for your servants’ sake, the tribes of your inheritance.
18 The people of your holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries [the misleading shepherd who lead God’s people] have trodden down [buwc] your sanctuary.
19 We are yours [alone LORD]: you never bare rule over them [the shepherds of corruption, who’ve fouled My pasture with their unwashed feet]; they were not called by your name [not called by You to manifest Your identity].

In Ezekiel 34, when the LORD speaks to the “shepherds” and of “feeding” the word is ra’ah, which we know has an affinity with the word (also transliterating to ra’ah) meaning to “see.”

Ezekiel 34
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man [I Am], prophesy against the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus says the LORD God unto the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers]; Woe be to the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] of Israel that do feed [ra’ah – see for] themselves! should not the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] feed [ra’ah – see for] the flocks?
3 You eat the fat, and you clothe you with the wool, you kill them that are fed [ra’ah – by the things you see for yourselves]: but you feed [ra’ah – see] not [for] the flock.
4 The diseased have you not strengthened [with My word I give you], neither have you healed [with My word I give you] that which was sick, neither have you bound up [with My word] that which was broken, neither have you brought again [into My presence] that which was [by you] driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty [of your deceptions and misleading] have you ruled them [into ruin].
5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd [ra’ah – no seer]: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of [paniym – from My presence on] the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
7 Therefore, you shepherds [ra’ah – seers], hear the word of the LORD;
8 As I live, says the LORD God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field [all those on the earth without My Spirit], because there was no shepherd [ra’ah – no seers], neither did my shepherds [ra’ah -seers] search for my flock, but the shepherds [ra’ah – the seers] fed [ra’ah – saw for] themselves, and fed not [ra’ah – and see not for] my flock;
9 Therefore, O you shepherds [ra’ah – blind seers], hear the word of the LORD;
10 Thus says the LORD God; Behold, I Am against the shepherds [ra’ah – these blind seers]; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding [ra’ah – from seeing for] the flock; neither shall the shepherds [ra’ah – these blind seers] feed [ra’ah – see for] themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth [their words by which the devours and swallow into the belly of hell], that they may not be meat for them.
11 For thus says the LORD God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
12 As a shepherd [ra’ah – as a good seers] seeks out his flock in the day that he is [as I Am] among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy [when understanding has been removed from the earth and is held there with Me alone] and dark day [when the earth is cover in mass ignorance of Me and My way].
13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land [‘adamah – this new generation of man I create], and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers [of these life giving waters], and in all the inhabited places of the country [‘erets – this new earth I create].
14 I will feed [ra’ah – see for] them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains [My new government I’ve created] of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed [ra’ah – see for them] upon the mountains [leading My new government that rules over the new earth] of Israel [in whom I reign and rule].
15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, says the LORD God.
16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed [ra’ah – see for] them with [good] judgment.
17 And as for you, O my flock, thus says the LORD God; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats. [see Matthew 25 below]
18 Seem it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but you must tread down [ramac] with your feet the residue of your pastures [you’ve defiled]? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but you must foul the residue with your feet [of your deep understanding that is corrupted, by your feet which must be washed]?
19 And as for my flock, they eat that which you have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which you have fouled with your feet.
20 Therefore thus says the LORD God unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle [between those who refuse to wash their feet of the corruption and those have purified themselves and are thereby able to see My presence and see for the flock].
21 Because you have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad;
22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
23 And I will set up one shepherd [ra’ah – One seer] over them [My Chief Overseer of the earth, Who I have chosen, not as man sees, but by the heart only I see and know], and he shall feed [ra’ah – see for] them, even my servant David [I Am]; he shall feed [ra’ah – see for] them, and he shall be their shepherd [ra’ah – their seer].
24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.
25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts [the dead ruling the world without My Spirit] to cease out of the land [‘erets – the new earth I’ve created]: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness [among the desolation, upon which we shall build], and sleep in the woods [not fearing the evil beast].
26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill [My new government] a blessing; and I will cause the shower [my word from heaven] to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.
27 And the tree [of life] of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land [‘adamah – this new generation of man], and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.
28 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen [who haven’t known Me], neither shall the beast [the dead without My Spirit] of the land [‘erets – of the old earth] devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.
29 And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger [by not hearing the word of God] in the land [‘erets – in the new earth], neither bear the shame of the heathen [the consequences of following those without the LORD’s Spirit, who make promises they are unable, and never intended, to bring into reality] any more.
30 Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, says the LORD God.
31 And you my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I Am your God, says the LORD God.

John 13
3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
4 He rises from [this] supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
5 After that he [as the Rock] poured [out of himself these life giving] water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet [of the corruption they picked up in the journey through the age], and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
6 Then comes he to Simon Peter: and Peter says unto him, LORD, do you wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do you know not now; but you shall know hereafter [because He here and now tells us].
8 Peter says unto him, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash you not [of the corruption, like leaven, that corrupts the whole body], you have no part with me.
9 Simon Peter says unto him, LORD, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus says to him, He that is washed needs not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and you are clean, but not all.
11 For he knew who [Judas: Judah, the leaders, seers, shepherds, who feed themselves] should betray him; therefore said he, You are not all clean.
12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know you what I have done to you? [Ephesians 5: 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.]
13 You call me Master and LORD: and you say well; for so I Am.
14 If I then, your LORD and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
16 Truly, truly, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his LORD; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If you know these things, happy are you if you do them.
18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eat bread with me has lifted up his heel [the blind seers, exalting their corruption above My words] against me.
19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass [as it now has], you may believe that I am he.

Matthew 15
7 You hypocrites, well did Esaias [in Isaiah 29:13] prophesy of you, saying,
8 This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart [mind] is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the [corrupt] commandments of men.
10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goes into the mouth defile a man; but that [words] which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Know you that the Pharisees [the religious dividers, the blind seers] were offended, after they heard this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant [of renown], which my heavenly Father has not planted [who exalt themselves above the Father’s planting], shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Isaiah 29
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; 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, and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers has he covered.
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed:
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 honour me, but have removed their heart 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 [eye opening] work and a wonder: 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 counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who sees [ra’ah] us? and who knows us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work [ma’aseh – what He has made] say of him that made [‘asah] it, He made [‘asah] me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

Jeremiah 6
16 Thus says the LORD, Stand you in the ways, and see [ra’ah], and ask for the old paths [nathiyb], where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
17 Also I set watchmen [tsaphah – Overseers, who see these hidden treasures] over you, saying, Hearken to the sound [qowl – the voice] of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear [shama’ – and obey], you nations [you who haven’t know Me], and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear [shama’ – and obey], O earth: behold, 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.

The only other time Jeremiah uses the word nathiyb appears in Jeremiah 18:15 in a continuation of the above passage.

Jeremiah 18
9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;
10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey [shama’] not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah [the current crop of corrupt leaders, blind shepherds], and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus says the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return you now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.
12 And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.
13 Therefore thus says the LORD; Ask you now among the heathen [those who haven’t known Me], who has heard such things [that there is no hope]: the virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing. [Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none does return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.]
14 Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon [purity seen on high, from where flows these waters] which comes from the rock [from whom they flow] of the field [on the earth]? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another place [a place they haven’t known] be forsaken [as they have forsaken My words]?
15 Because my people has forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths [nathiyb], to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;
16 To make their land [‘erets – the earth] desolate, and a perpetual hissing [their ruin drawing attention to itself]; every one that passes thereby [‘abar – passes over their way from death into life] shall be astonished [not understanding why they choose death], and wag his head [in disbelief and wonder].
17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before [paniym – My Spirit manifesting MY presence against] the enemy; I will show them the back [they shall only see it after I have done it], and not the face [paniym – not knowing it is My presence manifested], in the day of their calamity.
18 Then said they, Come and let us devise devices against Jeremiah [the LORD rising among us to raise His people from death into life]; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.
19 Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.
20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before you [paniym – as Your presence] to speak good for them, and to turn away [shuwb – that they would return to You, and receive Your word, that it wouldn’t be] your wrath [but your good] from [upon] them.

Psalms 119
95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider your testimonies.
96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but your commandment [mitsvah] is exceeding broad.
97 O how love I your law! it is my meditation all the day.
98 You through your commandments [mitsvah] have made me wiser than my enemies: for they are ever with me.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for your testimonies are my meditation.
100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep your precepts.
101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep your word.
102 I have not departed from your judgments: for you have taught me.
103 How sweet are your words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
104 Through your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
105 Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path [nathiyb].
106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep your righteous judgments.
107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me [into life], O LORD, according unto your word.

Psalms 58 below is titled, Michtam of David. Michtam translates to what, who, this, or that katham, meaning to inscribe indelibly. It is a once used word that appears Jeremiah 2:22, rendered “marked.” The Interlinear Bible renders Michtam as “a secret treasure.”

Jeremiah 2
19 Your own wickedness shall correct you, and your backslidings shall reprove you: know therefore and see [ra’ah] that it is an evil thing [ra’] and bitter [mar], that you have forsaken the LORD your God, and that my fear is not in you, says the LORD God of hosts.
20 For of old time I have broken your yoke, and burst your bands; and you said, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree you wander, playing the harlot.
21 Yet I had planted you a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then are you turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?
22 For though you wash you with nitre, and take you much soap, yet your iniquity is marked [katham – indelibly written] before me [paniym – by My presence manifested, and you are revealed], says the LORD God.
23 How can you say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim [the false gods of this world]? see your way in the valley, know what you have done: you are a swift dromedary traversing her ways [carrying your burden of corrupt through generations];
24 A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind [breathing in any evil spirit] at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her [words to be death and the gates of hell].
25 Withhold your foot from being unshod, and your throat from thirst: but you saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.
26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets.

Psalms 58
Michtam [the secret treasure] of David
1 Do you indeed [keep silent when you should] speak righteousness, O congregation? do you [keep silent when you should] judge uprightly, O you sons of men?
2 Yea [you do], in heart you work wickedness; you weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
3 The wicked are estranged [from God] from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison [in their words] is like the poison [in the mouth] of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stop her ear [refusing to hear and obey the voice of LORD];
5 Which will not hearken [shama’ – and obey] to the voice [qowl] of charmers [‘achash – the small voice], charming [chabar – that fascinate them] never so wisely [chakam – with the wisdom He is teaching].
6 Break their teeth [with which they devour dead flesh], O God, in their mouth [their words]: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
7 Let them melt away [ma’ac] as waters [from broken cisterns, whose explanation hold no water] which run continually [halak – that walk away {in shame}]: when he bends [darak – to walk away, tread] his bow to shoot his arrows [at the understanding of the innocent], let them be as cut in pieces [cut short of their evil destination].
8 As a snail which melts [expends itself by moving on the slime it secretes], let every one of them pass away [halak – as they walk their way]: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun [this light of this new day].
9 Before your pots feel [the heat of] the thorns [the misleader on fire beneath them], he shall take them away as with a whirlwind [sa’ar – with terrible fear], both living, and in his wrath. [Jeremiah 2:12 Be astonished, O you heavens {places where understanding should be found and isn’t}, at this, and be horribly afraid {sa’ar}, be you very desolate, says the LORD. 13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns {bo’r – only used here, from ba’ar, meaning an explanation}, broken cisterns {bo’r}, that can hold no water.]
10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance: he shall wash his feet [of corruption] in the blood of the wicked.
11 So that a man shall say, Truly there is a reward for the righteous: truly he is a God that judges in the earth.

Yea, for your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

14 – 17 May 2024

Yea, for your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

The LORD begins today in a mystery, a strategic secret, above in Psalms 44:22, revealed now in this time of war against the darkness that covers all understanding. It is in it we find the “victory,” when we, with His awakening in us, are quickened from death into life by our confession of His presence in His word we speak as His (identity in His) ONE living BODY.

Paul, the LORD alive in him speaking and working, quotes the above verse in Romans 8:36, speaking to those of us predestined for this moment of awakening, follows it in verse 37, saying, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

The word rendered “more than conquerors” is the once-used Greek work hupernikao, meaning “to vanquish beyond, i.e. gain a decisive victory.”

Paul’s beginning verse 37 with “nay” would appear, at first glance, to contradict Psalms 44:22, which he just cited and affirmed with a “Yea.” A deeper examination of the original text tells us otherwise.

In Psalms 44, the verse is followed with verse 23 saying, “Awake, why sleep you, O LORD? arise, cast us not off forever.”

As background, the Psalm is titled, For the Sons of Korah, Maschil. Korah is a son of Levi who rebelled against Moses and for it was, with his fellow rebels, eventually swallowed by the earth. The word maschil means instruction. These meanings tell us the Psalm is a written instruction to those now in rebellion, refusing to follow and obey the LORD’s instructions through His chosen. It (the Psalm) ends with the epilogue, “To the Chief Musician [natsach – Chief Overseer] upon Shoshannim,” meaning it’s sent to those [first to the first begotten] leading God’s people in repeating the Songs He’s given: and their ONE voice is the last trumpet sounding.

The awakening, spoken of in verse 23, is God’s people opening their mouths and coming to life, as Korah, who, instead of choosing destruction, is changed at this last trump, as the corrupt put on uncorrupted truth and they (put on) their immortality.

We know (among other things, by deeper examination) that Paul’s wording (in Romans 8:37) is a paraphrase of Psalms 44:23 and speaks of the same victory over death. Paul, knowing the word “forever” in the original text is netsach (meaning the goal), also knows it’s the word rendered “victory” in Isaiah 25:8.

When quoting this Isaiah passage in 1 Corinthians 15:54, he (Paul) uses the four-time-used word nikos, always rendered “victory,” and always speaks of the victory over death and the grave (hell, in the earth’s belly) and by whom it comes.

Going deeper, the word nikos appears three times in 1 Corinthians 15 (verses 54, 54 & 57) and once in Matthew 12:20, as the LORD quotes Isaiah 42:3, where the word (rendered “victory” in Matthew) is the Hebrew word ‘emeth and is rendered “truth.”

The point: hear and obey the word of the LORD, put off corruption and put on immortality, or remain in the belly of the earth ending in ruin. Victory and truth are synonymous, both (the goal led to by the Chief Overseer), which, when they come, end death by the LORD long-suffering to raise us from it into life.

Romans 8
27 And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints [knowing they are also in need of this change] according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called [kletos] according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow [know before, the faithful throughout history], he also did predestinate [proorizo – to limit in advance, at this horizon] to be conformed to the image [eikon] of his Son, that he might be [as the first light on the horizon] the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate [proorizo], them he also called [kaleo]: and whom he called [kaleo], them he also justified [dikaioo – freed from corruption]: and whom he justified [freed from corruption], them he also glorified [manifesting His presence in them].
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect [eklektos – His chosen]? It is God that justifies [frees us from corruption and thereby death].
34 Who is he that condemns? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen [egeiro] again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession [entugchano] for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of [agape – freely giving us all things through] Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, [Psalms 44:22 saying,”Yea,” to verse 21 saying “Shall not God search this out? for he knows the secrets of the heart.”] For your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors [hupernikao] through him that loved [agapao – freely gave His treasures to] us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love [agape – this grace given by the Divine charity] of God, which is in Christ Jesus our LORD.

1 Thessalonians 3
8 For now we live, if you stand fast [steko] in the LORD.

Psalms 43
1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2 For you are the God of my strength: why do you cast me off [as in Psalms 44 below]? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out your light [understanding] and your truth [‘emeth – which bring us to the victory]: let them lead me; let them bring me unto your holy hill, and to your tabernacles.
4 Then will I go unto the altar of God [offering the sacrifice in which He delights], unto God [realized] my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise you, O God my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health [yshuw’ah – Jesus] of my countenance [paniym – Your presence manifested in the flesh], and my God.
To the Chief Musician [Natsach – the Chief Overseer who, with these songs, leads into truth and victory]

Psalms 44
Words of Instruction, to be Sung to the Rebels and by them upon Returning
1 We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work you did in their days, in the times of old.
2 How you did drive out the heathen with your hand, and planted them; how you did afflict the people, and cast them out.
3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but your right hand, and your arm, and the light [understanding] of your countenance [paniym – Your presence], because you had a favor unto them.
4 You are my King, O God: command deliverances [yshuw’ah – Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh] for Jacob.
5 Through you will we push down our enemies: through your name [Your Identity] will we tread them under that rise up against us.
6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
7 But you have saved us from our enemies, and have put them to shame that hated us.
8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise your name [Your identity] forever. Selah.
9 But [in our rebellion and rejection of Your leadership] you have cast off, and put us to shame; and go not forth with our armies.
10 You make us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
11 You have given us like sheep appointed for meat; and have scattered us among the heathen.
12 You sell your people for naught, and do not increase your wealth by their price.
13 You make us a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
14 You make us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
15 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face has covered me,
16 For the voice of him that reproaches and blasphemes; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
17 All this is come upon us; yet have we [in our confusion we thought we have] not forgotten you, neither have we dealt falsely in your covenant.
18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from your way;
19 Though you have sore broken us in the place of dragons [tanniyn – by men among us as serpents and whales, devoured us with their wide open mouths and swallowing us into this belly of hell], and covered us with [concealed from us] the shadow of [darkness – ignorance of our own condition, which is] death.
20 If we have forgotten the name of [the identity, His manner in which He reveals Himself as] our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god [which men created and put in His place];
21 Shall not God search [chaqar – penetrate this darkness] this out [as He has]? for he knows the secrets of the heart [mind].
22 Yea, for your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
23 Awake, why sleep you, O LORD? Arise [in us], cast us not off forever [netsach – from Your victory and truth].
24 Wherefore hide you your face [paniym – Your presence, which is only hidden in the ignorance caused by the dragons among you], and forget our affliction and our oppression [which He hasn’t forgotten, but they, the rebels, continually turn to their oppressors thinking these destroyers will save them from themselves]?
25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust [the ruin of the earth led by serpents and whales]: our belly [beten – the belly of hell, of Jonah 2:2] cleaves [dabaq – meaning “to impinge, i.e. cling or adhere; figuratively, to catch by pursuit”] unto [hell on] the earth.
26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for your mercies’ sake.

What part of this isn’t clear yet? What part hasn’t the LORD fully explained? When is it enough?

Ezekiel 33
17 Yet the children of your people say, The way of the LORD is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
20 Yet you say, The way of the LORD is not equal. O you house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.
21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year [the perfection, completion, of the LORD’s government in this new heaven and earth] of our captivity, in the tenth month [ordinal perfection, when all things have been put in their right order], in the fifth day [of His grace and mercy] of the month, that one that had escaped [paliyt, it is referring back to verse 5 of this chapter, where the word malat, meaning to escape, rendered “deliver,” speaks of those who received the warning and acting upon it, escaped what is warned of] out of [corrupt] Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city [of those turned from righteousness, and the wicked who haven’t turned from their wickedness] is smitten [by its own ignorance and insanity].
22 Now the hand of the LORD was upon me in the evening [as darkness was coming], afore he that was escaped [paliyt] came [with this warning]; and had opened my mouth [to speak the LORD’s word], until he came to me in the morning [when this understanding of this new day was come]; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more dumb.
23 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land [‘adamah – the ruin of this last generation] of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land [’erets – the earth]: but we are many; the land [‘erets – the earth] is given us for inheritance.
25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; You eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall you possess the land?
26 You stand upon your sword, you work abomination, and you defile every one his neighbor’s wife: and shall you possess the land [’erets – the earth]?
27 Say you thus unto them, Thus says the LORD God; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
28 For I will lay the land [‘erets – the earth] most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through [‘abar – from death into life].
29 Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.
30 Also, you son of man, the children of your people still are talking against you by the walls [of things that aren’t true] and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that comes forth from the LORD.
31 And they come unto you as the people comes, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear your words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness [betsa’ – dishonesty].
32 And, lo, you are unto them as a very lovely song of one that has a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear your words, but they do them not.
33 And when this comes to pass, (lo, it will come [as it now has],) then shall they know that a prophet has been among them.

Isaiah 25
1 O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2 For you have made of a [corrupt] city a heap; of a defensed city a ruin: a palace of strangers [in power] to be no city; it shall never be built.
3 Therefore shall the strong people [strengthened with Your understanding] glorify you, the city of the terrible [‘ariyts] nations [who haven’t known the present LORD] shall fear you.
4 For you have been a strength to the poor [those without worldly power], a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast [ruwach – the evil spirit] of the terrible ones [‘ariyts] is as a storm against the wall [the houses in Matthew 7:24 thru 27].
5 You shall bring down [kana’ – vanquish, cause to bend their knee] the noise of strangers [who I never knew, as in Matthew 7:22 & 23], as the heat in a dry place [as fire from My mouth against these places that are without My word]; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud [the same fire against the vail covering this understanding]: the branch [zamiyr – only appearing here, meaning pruned, as in their words are cut off] of the terrible ones [‘ariyts] shall be brought low [‘anah – meaning when My people see and obey My commands, meaning “to eye or (generally) to heed, i.e. pay attention; by implication, to respond; by extens. to begin to speak; specifically to sing, shout, testify, announce“].
6 And in this mountain [the LORD’s perfected government] shall the LORD of hosts [I Am, a man of war] make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined [which are here and now freely given in word form].
7 And he will destroy in this mountain [His perfected government] the face [revealing His presence] of the covering [lowt] cast over [luwt] all people, and the vail [covering His presence and his sword, this word from My mouth] that is spread over all nations [all those who haven’t know My presence].
8 He will swallow up death in victory [netsach]; and the LORD God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD has spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
10 For in this mountain [His here perfected government – which is nothing like all the wise men, all the false prophets and false teachers, all the loudest and most heard voice, said and told, tell, people to look for and forever wait, which will never come, because they are fabrication of deluded minds] shall the hand [this work] of the LORD rest, and Moab [the mouth of men which are the gates of hell] shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
11 And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim [rightly dividing these waters on this day of My new creation, in the firmament, this exposition, which I call the new heaven]: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
12 And the fortress of the high fort of your walls [their house they built on sand] shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.

The following, ending in Jeremiah 50, is from several previous posts showing the words lowt and luwt speak of the LORD concealing His presence, which He now reveals in a manner only He knows.

As we know from previous discussions, the “cover” (from the once used word lowt) “cast over” (from the three times used word luwt) all people, which the LORD removes, refer us to the other two times luwt appears.

In the first, 1 Samuel 22:9, it’s the “wrapping” David removes from the sword he took from Goliath, with which he cut off his head. The sword is then, in the following verses, revealed to be deception, which causes David’s enemies to disregard him.

1 Samuel 21
9 And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you slew in the valley of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped [luwt] in a cloth behind the ephod: if you will take that, take it: for there is no other save that here. And David said, There is none like that; give it me.
10 And David arose and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath.
11 And the servants of Achish said unto him, Is not this David the king of the land? did they not sing one to another of him in dances, saying, Saul has slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands?
12 And David laid up these words in his heart, and was sore afraid of Achish [“I will blacken” hide myself in there ignorance, so they think I AM “only a man”] the king of Gath [“winepress,” as I come as judgment].
13 And he changed his behavior before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard.
14 Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, you see the man is mad: wherefore then have you brought him to me?
15 Have I need of mad men, that you have brought this fellow to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house?

The other use (of luwt) comes in 1 Kings 19:13, when Elijah (Jehovah is God) “wrapped” his face (paniym – presence) in his mantle (covering God’s glory in him), which (mantle) he later cast upon Elisha (God is Salvation).

Jeremiah 50
24 I have laid a snare for you, and you are also taken, O Babylon, and you were not aware: you are found, and also caught, because you have strived against the LORD.
25 The LORD has opened his armory, and has brought forth the weapons of his indignation [za’am]: for this is the work of the LORD God of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans [against those who’ve used their words to manipulate humanity into hell].
26 Come against her from the utmost border [qets – this full end], open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left.
27 Slay all her bullocks [those doing this work of misleading into hell]; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation [pquddah – now, when I Am here as the Chief Overseer of the earth].
28 The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to [open their mouth and] declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple.
29 Call together the archers against Babylon: all you that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she has done, do unto her: for she has been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One of Israel.
30 Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, says the LORD.
31 Behold, I am against you, O you most proud, says the LORD God of hosts: for your day is come, the time that I will visit you.
32 And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
33 Thus says the LORD of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go.
34 Their Redeemer is strong; the LORD of hosts [a man of war] is his name [My identity]: he shall thoroughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the land, and disquiet [raqaz – pour His anger upon] the inhabitants of Babylon.
35 A sword [of David] is upon the Chaldeans, says the LORD, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men.
36 A sword is upon the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.
37 A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.
38 A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad [become insane] upon their idols.
39 Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited forever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.
40 As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbor cities thereof, says the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein.
41 Behold, a people shall come from the north [shall come out of ignorance], and a great [new] nation, and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts [the end of the old and corrupt, where their proud waves are stayed, beginning the new] of the earth.
42 They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel, and will not show mercy: their voice shall roar like the sea, and they shall ride upon horses, everyone put in array, like a man to the battle, [as My awakened army] against you, O daughter of Babylon.
43 The king of Babylon has heard the report [shama’ shema’ – understood and obeyed – acted knowing the time is of his end] of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish [tsarah – tribulation he caused] took hold [epithesis] of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail [fearing what they have brought forth].
44 Behold, he [the LORD, I Am] shall come up like a lion from [roaring against] the swelling [proud waves] of Jordan [words that carried all in the descent into death] unto the habitation of the strong [in power]: but I will make them [the wicked] suddenly run away from her [My people they have oppressed]: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint [paqad – who I will make Chief Overseer] over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me? [All these are references to Michael, who is like God and stands for God’s people in this time of Jacob’s trouble {tsarah}, and Shiloh, who comes as the shepherd and stone of God’s people – the king of peace, and king of righteousness, in the order of Melchizedek]
45 Therefore hear you the counsel of the LORD, that he has taken against Babylon; and his purposes, that he has purposed against the land of the Chaldeans: Surely the least of the flock [{as in Ahasuerus} “I will be silent and poor {without earthly power}”] shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitation desolate with them.
46 At the noise [qowl – the LORD’s voice] of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations.

Matthew 7 [from the previous post]
13 Enter you in [into His presence] at the strait [stenos – avoiding the obstacles that attempt to block the] gate: for wide [platus – only used here, the same as plasso and plastos, meaning fabricated, fictitious, falsely formed] is the gate, and broad [euruchoros {eu-rhume-chora} – only used here, meaning crowding good into emptiness: making it without form] is the way, that leads [apago] to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait [stenos – wrought with these obstacles] is the gate, and narrow [thlibo – crowded with those who put their opinions in the place of truth] is the way, which leads [apago] unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets [speaking in the LORD’s name, or in the name of some other god they put in His place], which come to you in sheep’s clothing [disguised as a friend or neighbor, saying they are at peace with you, while they war against us, out better culture, and our nation], but inwardly they are ravening wolves [who will turn on you, and as the swine mentioned above, rend you: scattering you from the LORD and His ONE BODY, which only a chosen few find].
16 You shall know them by their fruits [karpos – the foundations of their mind revealed in their conversation]. Do men gather grapes of thorns [misleaders], or figs of thistles [deceivers]?
17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit [karpos]; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit [karpos].
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit [karpos], neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit [karpos].
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit [karpos] is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits [karpos] you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven [bringing forth the good fruit He has given us and commanded us to give it as received].
22 Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you [I was never, and I Am not now, joined with you in your own evil works against me and My flock]: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a Rock [the sons from whom the Father’s word flows]:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand [ammos – a-momos, only used five times, meaning they are those claiming they are flawless: infallible, as do the many religious of our time, saying they are without a beam in their eye]:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes [the know-it-alls].

Isaiah 42
1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; my elect [bachiyr – b’ah charar, enter by fire, the trial therein], in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed shall he not break [those, as Gideon’s three hundred, chosen at this water’s edge], and the smoking flax shall he not quench [but shall bring them to a bright flame again]: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth [‘emeth – this victory over death and hell].
4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles [the dry places of the earth, where they have been without this word] shall wait for his law.
5 Thus says God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out [in this exposition]; he that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it; he that gives breath [life by this light] unto the people upon it, and [His] spirit to them that walk therein:
6 I the LORD have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you, and give you for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles [understanding to those who haven’t known Me];
7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness [the ignorant] out of the prison house.
8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, you that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar [darkness] does inhabit: let the inhabitants of the Rock [from where this word flows] sing [repeat the words you’ve heard], let them shout from the top of the mountains [the LORD’s government].
12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands [the dry place where His word isn’t heard].
13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman [and bring forth the children the LORD has given me]; I will destroy and devour at once.
15 I will make waste mountains and hills [the corrupt government of church and state], and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the [their] rivers islands, and I will dry up the [their] pools.
16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light [will reveal to them these things they haven’t known because they’ve been hidden in the ignorance men created and taught] before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images [men created and put in My place], that say to the molten images [they formed], You are our gods.
18 Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.
19 Who is blind, but my servant [not seeing anything that the corrupt world sees]? or deaf [not hearing the corrupt words of men who’ve destroyed all truth], as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’s servant?
20 Seeing many things, but you observe not [the idols of men]; opening the ears, but he hears not [the things of men].
21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable.
22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore [shuwb – return the understanding you have taken away].
23 Who among you will give ear to this [and hear the voice of the LORD]? who will hearken and hear [shama’ – and obey] for the time to come [‘achown – now in these last days of darkness]?
24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned [chata’ – to miss {his presence}]? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.
25 Therefore he has poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it has set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart [because they missed Him, not knowing Him or His manner].

Isaiah 43
1 But now thus says the LORD that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are mine.
2 When you pass [‘abar – from death into life] through the waters, I will be with you [as one that swims]; and through the rivers [in which flows the waters of death], they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.
3 For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior: I gave Egypt [your oppressor who are overflowed by My word, the sword they refuse] for your ransom, Ethiopia [those covered in their own darkness] and Seba [who I have made you drink of their own poisonous cup] for you.
4 Since you were precious in my sight, you have been honorable, and I have loved you: therefore will I give men for you, and people for your life.
5 Fear not: for I am with you: I will bring your seed from the east, and gather you from the west;
6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth [the end of the old and corrupt and beginning the new, wherein dwells righteousness];
7 Even every one that is called by my name [in whom My identity is declared and manifested]: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
9 Let all the nations [who haven’t know me] be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth [‘emeth – My victory over death and gates of hell].
10 You are my witnesses, says the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen [bachar – who have entered My presence in this trial by fire]: that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior.
12 I have declared [My presence in the flesh of My chosen], and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange god among you: therefore you are my witnesses, says the LORD, that I am God.
13 Yea, before the day was I Am he; and there is none that can deliver [natsal – the Hebrew equivalent harpazo {“caught up”}] out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it [shuwb – after My work, who shall, from My hand {work}, return to corruption]? [John 10: 26 But you believe not, because you are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck {harpazo} them out of my hand {work}. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck {harpazo} them out of my Father’s hand {work}. 30 I and my Father are one.]
14 Thus says the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon [this time when the earth is ruled by confusion and insanity], and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans [those who’ve used their untrue word to manipulate and control the world into death and hell], whose cry [words] is in the ships [the institutions of church and state they control].
15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.
16 Thus says the LORD, which makes a way in the sea [for humanity at large], and a path in the mighty waters [these words that are light and life];
17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power [as the army of Egypt]; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow [as smoking flax extinguished, so none any longer look to them for light].
18 Remember you not the former things, neither consider the things of old [the corrupted heaven and earth that are ending].
19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers [these springs of life-giving water] in the desert.
20 The beast [who were lifeless flesh without My Spirit] of the field shall honor me, the dragons [tan – men who before were as whales and serpents devouring men and swallowing them into the belly of hell] and the owls [who before hunted souls in the darkness]: because I give [these life giving] waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen [bachiyr – those who’ve entered My presence in this trial by fire].
21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall show forth my praise.
22 But you have not called upon me, O Jacob; but you have been weary of me, O Israel.
23 You have not brought me the small cattle of your burnt offerings; neither have you honored me with your sacrifices. I have not caused you to serve with an offering, nor wearied you with incense.
24 You have bought me no sweet cane with money, neither have you filled me with the fat of your sacrifices: but you have made me to serve with your sins, you have wearied me with your iniquities. [When is it enough?]
25 I, even I, am he that blots out your transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember your sins.
26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare you, that you mayest be justified.
27 Your first father has sinned, and your teachers have transgressed against me.
28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

Isaiah 44
1 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen [bachar – to enter My presence in the trial by fire]:
2 Thus says the LORD that made you, and formed you from the womb, which will help you; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and you, Jesurun [who shall prosper under Me], whom I have chosen [bachar].
3 For I will pour [these rightly divided] water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon your seed, and my blessing upon your offspring:
4 And they shall spring up as among the grass [on this third day of my new creation], as willows by the water courses.
5 One shall say, I am the LORD’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname [kanah] himself by the name of Israel.
6 Thus says the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them.
8 Fear you not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? you are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

Matthew 12
14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.
15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
16 And charged them that they should not make him known:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles.
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he sends forth judgment unto victory [nikos – truth].
21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spoke and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
24 But when the Pharisees [the religious dividers, who’ve scattered God’s people] heard it, they said, This fellow does not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

Friends, the prominent and powerful, the wise of this world, whose mouths are always open, wizards of our time, by their muttering and peeping, show themselves without light, not knowing the time or the present LORD, continually bark into the darkness and not according to this word.

Isaiah 8
15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hides his face 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, which dwells in mount Zion.
19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits [the known dead], and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? [but instead, they continue looking] for the living to the dead?
20 [Shouldn’t they be looking] To the [this] law and to the [this] testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light [understanding] in them.
21 And they shall pass through it [‘abar – and {according to this word they could} passover from death into life], hardly bestead [but instead they became stiff necked] and hungry [and refused this word of God]: and it shall come to pass [hayah – and they became], that when they shall be hungry [refusing this word], they shall fret themselves [the word became wrath upon them], and curse their king and their God [who they don’t know and who they reject], and [not knowing His presence among them, they] look upward.
22 And they shall look unto the [corrupt powers of] earth; and behold trouble [tsarah – tribulation] and darkness [ignorance], dimness of anguish [they are covered by the shadow of these obstacles]; and they shall be driven to darkness [into insanity].

Isaiah 9
1 Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward [this refers to when Jehu gathered all those in Samaria worshiping Baal in the LORD’s place and destroyed them] did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan [after the teaching of false gods, the peeping and muttering wizards, carried all into spiritual death], in Galilee of the nations [and none knew the LORD or heard and understood His word].
2 The people that walked in darkness [in this ignorance] have seen a great light [are given understanding according to this word]: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined [this law and testimony].
3 You [LORD] have multiplied the nation [grew the population while they were ignorant of you], and not increased the joy [and none realize Your presence among them]: they joy before you according to the joy in harvest [receiving this word you have gathered and given to them, and they still don’t accept it as Your presence manifested], and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4 For you have broken the yoke of his burden [the corruption of those they were joined with and followed into darkness], and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor [the tyrants in power], as in the day of Midian [calling Your people to join You in this battle against those causing constant agitation and removing peace].
5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire [this word from the mouth of the LORD].
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 [now perfected] 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 forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts [I Am, a man of war] will perform this.
8 The LORD sent a word into Jacob, and it has lighted upon [those who surname themselves as] Israel.
9 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim [all God’s people in this generation] and the inhabitant of Samaria [who are in ignorance worshipping idols men created and put in the LORD’s place], that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,
10 The bricks are fallen down, but we [the destroyers in power who led the world into this fall] will build with hewn stones [with the same hands make new creations – “build back better”]: the sycamores are cut down [the so-called upright among them, who aren’t], but we will change them into cedars [rename them something they aren’t, destroyers calling themselves builders].
11 Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin [who will be firmly] against him [against the globalist communists here in power], and join his enemies [Russia & China] together [as it is this day];
12 The Syrians [the foreign enemies] before, and the Philistines [the invading enemy army mixed among us] behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his [the LORD’s] anger [against the communists in power oppressing His people] is not turned away, but his hand [His work to save those who receive it] is stretched out still [in peace and friendship].
13 For the people turn not unto him [the communists in power] that smite them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.
14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15 The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the [false] prophet[s] that teaches lies, he is the tail.
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
17 Therefore the LORD shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one [following them into destruction, while refusing the LORD‘s offer of rescue] is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly [peeping and muttering as their teachers taught them]. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand [his word and work] is stretched out still.
18 For wickedness burns as the fire: it shall devour the briers [deceivers] and thorns [misleaders], and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest [among the falsely so-called upright], and they [these men as they are burning up] shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke [and in which none can see the way].
19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.
20 And he shall snatch [be divided] on the right hand, and be hungry [still refusing to hear and obey this word]; and he shall eat [the words of deceivers] on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied [never say it is enough – see Provers 30 below]: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm [not knowing they are all one body]:
21 Manasseh [this generation that has forgotten the LORD], Ephraim [God’s people still worshipping idols and the lies they’ve taught]; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah [the every small elect remnant]. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still [offering peace, which He doesn’t hold back from any who will receive Him].

Proverbs 30
11 There is a generation [now upon the earth] that curses their father [rejecting His knowledge and understanding], and does not bless their mother [their teacher who teaches them wisdom].
12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness [corruption that defiles their minds and scatters the ONE BODY].
13 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth [with the words of their mouth], and the needy from among men.
15 The horse-leach [that attach themselves to the mouths of those who drink from their waters, draining their life from them and those who follow them] has two daughters, crying, Give, give [calling themselves teachers, evangelists, and experts, all while asking for money from those they give their evil advice]. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough [are never satisfied – ever learning and never able to reach understanding the truth]:
16 The grave [sheol – hell]; and the barren womb [those in hell who never obey and never bring any to life]; the earth that is not filled with water [this word of God, which the dead who call themselves His people refuse to give as He commands]; and the fire that says not [even while they are being consumed by it], It is enough [they are never satisfied, ever learning, in the experience, but never able to come to the understating of this truth].
17 The eye that mocks at his father, and despises to obey [yiqqahah] his mother, the ravens of the valley [those covered in darkness, the shadows of the mountains {those in high places misleading them}, of the earth] shall pick it out [their eyes, blinding them with learned ignorance], and the young eagles shall eat it [‘akal – as they fly in heaven, with the LORD and His full understanding, consuming the darkness with the fire from their mouths].
18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
19 The way of an eagle in the air [the strong here in heaven with the LORD, relentlessly doing His work as He commanded]; the way of a serpent upon a rock [the deceivers in the false church, in whom God’s dead people put their trust]; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea [the institutions of church and state government, ruling over the people who under them are held in its darkened deep]; and the way of a man [geber – the LORD who is {alive in} a mighty man of war] with a maid [‘almah – the seven times used word, which last appears in Isaiah 7:14, saying “Therefore the LORD himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin {‘almah} shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”].
20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman [the unfaithful church that has left the LORD and now follows men who put themselves in His place]; she eats [corruption], and wipe her mouth, and says, I have done no wickedness.
21 For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear:
22 For a servant when he reigns [without the LORD’s anointing]; and a fool when he is filled with meat [thinking he is wise and has understanding, because of his success using his dark decrees by which he misleads];
23 For an odious woman when she is married [the corrupt church joined with devils, those confederate with the communists now in power]; and a handmaid [the ONE BODY of Christ, now in hard bondage under the corrupt and false] that is heir to her mistress [the corrupt church she will replace when she receives and obeys Her LORD].
24 There be four things which are little [in value] upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat [lechem – bread] in the summer [so they have plenty when the time of need comes];
26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks [a good foundation upon which they stand];
27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands [all-consuming in their season];
28 The spider takes hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces [yet my people refuse to take hold of these ideas and enter Mine].
29 There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:
30 A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turns not away for any [relentlessly going forward];
31 A greyhound [zarziyr – this is a cheetah, quickest to the prey]; a he goat also [who knows His place is at the head of the flock, to lead it into good pasture]; and a king [in which the LORD lives and reigns], against whom there is no rising up.
32 If you have done foolishly in lifting up yourself [against Him], or if you have thought evil [and led against Him], lay your hand upon your mouth.
33 Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter [working in these foundational ideas causes their elements to congeal into understanding], and the wringing of the nose [wrestling against the LORD’s presence you should by now perceive] brings forth blood: so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.

Revelation 19
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the LORD our God:
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you his servants, and you that fear him, both small and great.
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia [Praise Yahh]: for the LORD God omnipotent reigns [His government is perfected in praising Him – Halel Yahh, to whom it appertains – Matthew 21:16 And said unto him, Hear you what these say {“Save now son of David”}? And Jesus says unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have perfected praise? See Psalms 8:2 below].
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he says unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb [become His ONE flesh BODY]. And he says unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me [as I am saying to you], See you do it not: I am your fellow-servant, and of your brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God [which only He knows, and is alive in me doing His work revealing Himself in His word].
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean [purified from all corruption].
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And LORD Of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven [by the strength of His full understanding], Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That you may [swallowing death in victory] eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast [the confusion that rules the world, deluding all institutions of church and state], and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet[s] that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark [of confusion in their head and hand, in their ideas and works, the fruits {karpos – heart-light} by which they are known] of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh [swallowing up death in victory].

Psalms 21
1 The king shall joy in your strength, O LORD; and in your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2 You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
3 For you prevent [go before] him with the blessings of goodness: you set a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked life of you, and you gave it him, even length of days forever and ever.
5 His glory is great in your salvation: honor and majesty have you laid upon him.
6 For you have made him most blessed forever: you have made him exceeding glad with your countenance [paniym – Your presence in me].
7 For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
8 Your hand shall find out all your enemies: your right hand shall find out those that hate you.
9 You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger [paniym – the time of Your presence manifested]: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire [from His mouth] shall devour them.
10 Their fruit [by the darkness of their hearts] shall you destroy [them] from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11 For they intended evil against you: they imagined a mischievous device [to use darkness and deceit to rule the world], which they are not able to perform.
12 Therefore shall you make them turn their back, when you shall make ready your arrows upon your strings against the face of [paniym – through Your presence and anger against] them.
13 Be you exalted [Your voice above all others], LORD, in your own strength [the understanding only You possess]: so will we sing [these same words] and praise your power [to change heaven and earth].

Psalms 8
A Psalms of David
1 O LORD, our LORD, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who have set your glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still [shabath – stop the work of] the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars [governments of state and church], which you have ordained [to rule with truth and justice, to secure the rights your given man, as you rule];
4 What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit him [paqad – make your presence known in me, as the Chief Overseer of the earth, to reset the right foundations of the earth]?
5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels [chacer ‘elohiym – as planned, lacking the full understanding which only God possesses], and have [by giving me, and all who through me receive it from Him, this understanding] crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea [all the beasts of the earth, including men, all without the LORD’s Spirit], and whatsoever passes through [‘abar – all that Passover into life in this resurrection from death] the paths [‘orach – as pilgrims traveling] of the seas [through the ages and generations].
9 O LORD [Jehovah] our LORD [‘adown – our King], how excellent is your name [identity – seeing Your presence] in all the earth!
To the chief Musician [natsach – Chief Overseer] upon Muth-labben [upon the death of Goliath, cutting off his head with this sword]

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.

12 – 13 May 2024

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.

As we’ve seen in many previous posts, but not recently discussed, the words rendered “strait” and “narrow,” speaking of the gate into life (out of death and hell), are stenos, used three times, meaning “narrow (from obstacles standing close about);” and thlibo, a ten times used word, meaning “to crowd (literally or figuratively).” It is from this latter word comes thlipsis, meaning “pressure (literally or figuratively):– afflicted(-tion), anguish, burdened, persecution, tribulation, trouble.”

These words speak of men as obstacles that must avoided and navigated, crowding the way (misleading those trying to enter, holding them with their mouths as the gates of hell).
The deeper aspect of the verse is in the word apago (compounded from the same components that make the word agape), which tells us these obstacles are blocking (katecho – withholding, letting) the way that “leads” (by agape) into life.

As we understand, the deep meaning in such passages shines bright in the seemingly disconnected words and statements accompanying them. In the above case, Matthew 7:14, the LORD is referring to the evil (the misleading of the straiteners and the narrowers) spoken by others (putting themselves in the LORD’s place as Provider), and the good gifts the Father is giving through Him (as here and now by His good shepherd). It is of this matter and pointing out the perpetrator (withholding and letting His people throughout time) the LORD speaks in the below portion of the chapter (those doing so in His name when He never knew them: was never joined with them as they went their own way).

Matthew 7
1 Judge not [with corrupt judgment, not seeing as the LORD sees], that you be not judged [with the same corrupt judgment].
2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete [give my good judgment, seeing as I see], it shall be measured to you again [this is specifically referenced in verse 12 below].
3 And why behold you the mote that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam [dokos, only used six times, all speaking on this same point: the corrupt judgment pervading our time; the word speaks of the balance beam of equal justice {dikaos} that comes with right thinking {dokeo}] that is in your own eye?
4 Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote [karphos – heart shining, the foundational understanding revealed in conversation; as is karpos: “fruit”] out of your eye [corrupting your judgment]; and, behold, a beam [dokos – the greater corruption of those who think they know, when their point of balance is off center, and they’ve become obstacles] is in your own eye?
5 You hypocrite, first cast out the beam [dokos] out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote [karphos] out of your brother’s eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs [those who are forever ignorantly barking in the darkness], neither cast you your pearls [the entryway found in these treasures, as in Revelation 21:21 speaking of the twelve gates into the city of God: holy Jerusalem that comes down from Him out of heaven] before swine [the unclean flesh of those who’ve become obstacles], lest they trample them under their feet [doing violence to these words, with their opinions they present as fact, defiling it as they’ve done to all truthful discourse], and turn again and rend [rhegma] you [scatter you again away from the LORD and His ONE BODY].
7 Ask [the Father], and it shall be given you; [diligently] seek [Him], and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you [by Him]:
8 For every one that asks [Him] receives; and he that seeks [Him] finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened [by Him]. [Hebrews 11: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.]
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets [from where comes these treasures from the present Father who gives them to be given].
13 Enter you in [into His presence] at the strait [stenos – avoiding the obstacles that attempt to block the] gate: for wide [platus – only used here, the same as plasso and plastos, meaning fabricated, fictitious, falsely formed] is the gate, and broad [euruchoros {eu-rhume-chora} – only used here, meaning crowding good into emptiness: making it without form] is the way, that leads [apago] to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait [stenos – wrought with these obstacles] is the gate, and narrow [thlibo – crowded with those who put their opinions in the place of truth] is the way, which leads [apago] unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets [speaking in the LORD’s name, or in the name of some other god they put in His place], which come to you in sheep’s clothing [disguised as a friend or neighbor, saying they are at peace with you, while they war against us, out better culture, and our nation], but inwardly they are ravening wolves [who will turn on you, and as the swine mentioned above, rend you: scattering you from the LORD and His ONE BODY, which only a chosen few find].
16 You shall know them by their fruits [karpos – the foundations of their mind revealed in their conversation]. Do men gather grapes of thorns [misleaders], or figs of thistles [deceivers]?
17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit [karpos]; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit [karpos].
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit [karpos], neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit [karpos].
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit [karpos] is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits [karpos] you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says unto me, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven [bringing forth the good fruit He has given us and commanded to give as received].
22 Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you [I was never, and I Am not now, joined with you in your own evil works against me and My flock]: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a Rock [the sons from whom the Father’s word flows]:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand [ammos – a-momos, only used five times, meaning they are those claiming they are flawless: infallible, as do the many religious of our time, saying they are without a beam in their eye]:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes [the know-it-alls].

Romans 9
18 Therefore has he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardens [skleruno, from skleros, the hard speeches of these ungodly men].
19 You will say then unto me, Why does he yet find fault? For who has resisted his will?
20 Nay but, O man, who are you that replies against God [with your own hard speeches against Him and His salvation plan, while refusing to speak His words as commanded]? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus?
21 Has not the potter power over the clay [as the LORD has power over the earth], of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?
22 What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power [over the earth] known, endured with much longsuffering [not willing that any should perish but that all would come to repentance] the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels [who receive] of mercy, which he had afore prepared [for their mouths to be opened, showing the same mercy] unto glory,
24 Even us, whom he has called [kaleo – and sent], not of the Jews [those who call themselves His people] only, but also of the Gentiles [those who haven’t known Him]?
25 As he says also in Hosea [2:23], I will call [kaleo] them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.
26 And [written in Hosea 1:10] it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, You are not my people; there shall they be called [kaleo – with correction, to become] the children of the living God.
27 Isaiah [in Isaiah 10:22 & 23] also cries concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand [ammos] of the sea, a remnant shall be [corrected and thereby] saved:
28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the LORD make upon the earth.
29 And as Isaiah [in Isaiah 1:9] said before, Except the LORD of Sabaoth [a man of war] had left us a seed [which He’s sown into the earth], we had been as Sodom [consumed in the flames of our time], and been made like unto Gomorrah [left an uninhabitable ruin].
30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles [who haven’t know the LORD], which followed not after righteousness [that is by keeping the now totally corrupted law: the doctrine of the apostate churches], have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith [by obeying the voice of the LORD, when they hear it as His, spoken by His elect remnant who first heard Him].
31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness.
32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works [touch not and taste not natural things, while they consumed deadly, corrupted, spiritual things] of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling-Stone [sent for their correction];
33 As it is written [in Isaiah 28:16], Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling-Stone and Rock of offence: and whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.

Hosea 1
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, You are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, You are [by His correction] the sons of the living God.
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together [into the LORD’s ONE BODY], and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land [‘erets – rise from the corrupt earth]: for great shall be the day of Jezreel [when I sow them into the earth].

Hosea 2
14 Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.
15 And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor [where they were in a constant state of agitation] for a door of hope: and she shall sing there [repeating these words of understanding I have given her], as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land [‘erets – arose from the earth] of Egypt.
16 And it shall be at that day, says the LORD, that you shall call me Ishi [man – a man of war]; and shall call me no more Baali [no longer calling your idols by My name]
17 For I will take away the names of Baalim [the words taught by your idols] out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.
18 And in that day will I make a covenant [writing My words, the only way to peace and safety, into their minds] for them with the beasts of the field [who have been without My Spirit] and with the fowls of heaven [those in the places where understanding should be found], and with the creeping things of the ground [all that walk the earth]: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle [against Me] out of the earth [‘erets], and will make them to lie down safely.
19 And I will betroth you unto me forever; yea, I will betroth you unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.
20 I will even betroth you unto me in faithfulness: and you shall know the LORD.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, says the LORD, I will hear the heavens [your understanding from your mouths], and they shall hear [be heard in] the earth [‘erets];
22 And the earth [‘erets] shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil [these words that nourish the mind]; and they shall hear Jezreel [My people I have sown into the earth].
23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth [‘erets]; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, You are my people; and they shall say, You are my God.

Isaiah 1
4 Ah sinful nation [who haven’t known Me], a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
5 Why should you [by your own ways] be stricken any more? you will revolt more and more: the whole head [all leadership] is sick, and the whole heart [mind] faint.
6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.
7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers [this is the True State of the Union].
8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers [alone among vines that have overgrown all else], as a besieged city.
9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom [consumed by flames], and we should have been like unto Gomorrah [left as an uninhabitable ruin].
10 Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.
11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
12 When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
13 Bring no more vain [worthless] oblations; incense is an abomination unto me [worshipping idols men created and put in My place]; the new moons [the corrupt governments you’ve created and put in the place of justice and security] and sabbaths [your interruptions and correction away from good and into evil], the calling of assemblies [to hear broadcasted the foolishness of buffoons], I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
15 And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of [innocent] blood.
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow [those who have no man to protect them from the attacks of the wicked].
18 Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If you be willing and obedient [shama’], you shall eat the good of the land [‘erets – the earth]:
20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.
21 How is the faithful city become a harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
22 Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water:
23 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come unto them [for protection against the wicked].
24 Therefore says the LORD, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies:
25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and purely purge away your dross, and take away all your tin:
26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

Isaiah 28
16 Therefore thus says the LORD GOD [‘Adonay Jehovih – KING of kings and LORD of lords], Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death [maveth] shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell [sheol] shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [shmuw’ah – the sound doctrine, teaching, and the rumor of Ezekiel 7:26, which is the voice of Jehovah heard].
20 For the bed is shorter than that a [sleeping] man can stretch himself on it: and the covering [the lies and falsehoods under which they hide is] narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
21 For the LORD [Jehovah] shall rise up as in mount Perazim [2 Samuel 5:20 – as water from His throne, breaking forth upon His and David’s enemies], he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon [Joshua 10:10 & 11 – His word reserved {frozen} in heaven, sent as great hailstones upon the wicked: the current corrupt crop sitting in power], that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange [known to no one except Him] act.
22 Now therefore be you not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the LORD GOD [‘Adonay Jehovih – KING of kings and LORD of lords], of hosts [a man of war and Commander, Chief, of the armies of heaven] a consumption [kalah – a full end, as in Daniel 9:27], even determined [charats – decreed, as in Joshua 10:21 saying “And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua {Jesus} at Makkedah {as one flock under one shepherd} in peace: none moved {charats} his tongue against any of the children of Israel.” And 2 Samiel 5:24, the LORD saying to David, “And let it be, when you hear {shama’ – obey} the sound {qowl – the voice} of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees {baka’, from which come bkowr – telling us this is the voice of the “firstborn”}, that then you shall bestir yourself: for then shall the LORD go out before {paniym – His presence will be manifested with, in} you, to smite the host of the Philistines {the enemy army now mixed among you}.”] upon the whole earth [‘erets].
23 Give you ear, and hear [shama’ – and obey] my voice [qowl]; hearken, and hear [shama’ – and obey] my speech.

As we know, the scourge mentioned above is from the eleven times used word showt, which only appears one other time in Isaiah, in Isaiah 10:26, telling us it’s the end of the LORD’s indignation, in the destruction of the wicked. It’s when, against Midian, all God’s people are called to destroy this existential threat.

Isaiah 10
21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
22 For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption [killayown – only here and Deuteronomy 28:65 where it is a “falling” eye, as in what these men say they’ve seen, as in Zachariah 14:12] decreed [charats] shall overflow with righteousness.
23 For the LORD God of hosts shall make a consumption [kalah – a full end], even determined [charats], in the midst of all the land [‘erets – the earth].
24 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, O my people that dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian [communists in power]: he shall smite you with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt [as tyrants oppressing all God’s people].
25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation [za’am] shall cease, and my anger in their destruction.
26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge [showt] for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb [those who trust in their cover of darkness – against who the LORD calls His people as light, mustering them to the battle and final destruction of these enemies among us]: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt [and the sea, God’s people at large, will come together again and overthrow them].
27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing [of the King].

Hebrews 3
7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost says, Today if you will hear [obey] his voice,
8 Harden [skleruno] not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness [when you doubted the LORD’s presence]:
9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do always err in their heart [darkened minds]; and they have not known my ways.
11 So I swore in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart [misled mind] of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened [skleruno] through the deceitfulness of sin.
14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end [in His presence, raising Himself in you];
15 While it is said, Today if you will hear his voice [here Him speaking], harden [skleruno] not your hearts, as in the provocation.
16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness?
18 And to whom swore he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
19 So we see that they could not enter in [into His presence] because of unbelief [not hearing or obeying His voice].

Psalms 4
1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: you have enlarged me [opening and entering my mind] when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
2 O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory into shame? how long will you love vanity [worthlessness], and seek after leasing [kazab – falsehood]? Selah.
3 But know that the LORD has set apart [palah] him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart [consider your thoughts and know they are vain] upon your bed [where you sleep], and be still. Selah.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
6 There be many that say, Who will show us any good? LORD, lift you up the light [understanding] of your countenance [paniym – Your presence] upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart [in my mind], more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for you, LORD, only make me dwell in safety.

Psalms 17
1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goes not out of feigned [deceitful] lips.
2 Let my sentence [mishpat – my judgment] come forth from your presence [paniym]; let your eyes behold [chazah – let me discern by seeing with Your sight] the things that are equal.
3 You have proved my heart; you have visited me [paqad – come as the Chief Overseer of the earth] in the night [this time when ignorance covers the earth and no man knows You]; you have tried me, and shall find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
5 Hold up my goings in your paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon you, for you will hear me, O God: incline your ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7 Show your marvelous lovingkindness, O you that saves by your right hand them which put their trust in you from those that rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of your wings,
9 From [paniym – By Your presence, save us from] the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10 They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouths they speak proudly.
11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to [corrupt] the earth;
12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint [paniym – by Your presence against] him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is your sword:
14 From men which are your hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly you fill with your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15 As for me, I will behold [chazah – perceive] your face [paniym – presence] in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with your likeness.

The “destroyer” mentioned above in verse 4 is the six times used word priyts, meaning “violent, i.e. a tyrant:–destroyer, ravenous, robber.” All the other five of its uses are in the passages below, in which the present LORD speaks to us of our time and His will.

The first of these comes in Isaiah 35:9, which follows chapter 34, wherein verse 11, the LORD speaks of the condition of the earth in like terms as in Genesis 1:2. In the former, it is “without form [tohuw], and void [bohuw], and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.”

In Isaiah 34:8, “it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, and the year of recompense for the controversy of Zion.” We know this controversy is about who is better suited to rule the earth, the LORD God who created it and will create it again anew, or the men who have brought it to its current state of “confusion” (tohuw) and “emptiness” (bohuw).

This state is mentioned in Isaiah 34:11, one of the three places the word bohuw appears, always with tohuw. In the other place, Jeremiah 4:23, it’s rendered the same as Genesis 1:2, also speaking of the condition of the earth.

Jeremiah 4
1 If you will return, O Israel, says the LORD, return unto me: and if you will put away your abominations out of my sight [paniym – from My presence], then shall you not remove.
2 And you shall swear, The LORD lives, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.
3 For thus says the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns [the misleader who overgrew My garden neglected by those in whose care I left it].
4 Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart [your minds], you men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of [paniym – which is My presence against] the evil of your doings.
5 Declare you in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow you the trumpet in the land [‘erets – the earth]: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defensed cities.
6 Set up the standard [nec – the pole upon which the son of man must be lifted] toward Zion: retire [‘uwz – save yourselves by coming out from among those misleading you], stay not [‘amad – stand not with them]: for I will bring evil from the north [this time of darkness when the existential threat is a man’s our ignorance], and a great destruction [sheber].

19 My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because you have heard, O my soul, the sound [qowl – voice] of the trumpet [the voice of the LORD’s archangel, I Am], the alarm of war.
20 Destruction [sheber] upon destruction [sheber] is cried; for the whole land [’erets – the whole earth] is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.
21 How long shall I see the standard [nec – the son of man, I Am, lifted by the LORD’s presence manifested in My flesh], and hear the sound [qowl – the voice] of the trumpet?
22 For my people is foolish [‘eviyl – silly], they have not known me; they are sottish [cakal – silly] children [as silly women ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, because they refuse to put away childish things], and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil [speaking the misleading, the fabrications, of those they follow], but to do good they have no knowledge.
23 I beheld the earth [‘erets], and, lo, it was without form [tohuw – in a state of mass confusion], and void [bohuw – it was emptied of all sanity]; and the heavens [the places where understanding should be and from where it should be taught], and they had no light.
24 I beheld the mountains [the corrupt governments of church and state], and, lo, they trembled [ra’ash – to bring the dead bones together, and to make men consider how they’ve handled the word of God, and to it done violence], and all the hills moved lightly.
25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man [alive in these governments], and all the birds of heavens [raise there by the LORD strength, His understanding] were fled.
26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place [My garden – karmel Carmel] was a wilderness [midbar], and all the cities thereof were broken down [nathats] at the presence [paniym] of the LORD, and by [paniym – by His presence manifesting] His fierce anger.
27 For thus has the LORD said, The whole land [‘erets] shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end [kalah].
28 For this shall the earth [‘erets] mourn, and the heavens [the corrupt place where understanding should be found] above be black [in complete ignorance, as they are this day]; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

Isaiah 34
16 Seek you out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it has commanded, and his spirit it has gathered them.
17 And he has cast the lot for them, and his hand has divided it [their confusion and emptiness in the places of their corrupt governments] unto them by line: they shall possess it forever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein. [Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.]

Isaiah 35
1 The wilderness [midbar] and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon [purity seen again in high places] shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon [My garden again plainly seen], they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
3 Strengthen you the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness [midbar] shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of [living] water: in the habitation of dragons [tan – men as serpents and whales, with their wide open mouths devouring men and swallowing them into the belly of hell], where each lay [there stop their works], shall be grass with reeds and rushes [and their words, the cause of the beam in men’s eyes, shall wither, and there end].
8 And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it [‘abar – the corrupt shall not passover from death into life]; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men [who’ve traveled this highway with the LORD], though [before] fools [‘eviyl – silly and have not known Me], shall not err therein.
9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous [priyts] beast [tyrants without the LORD’s Spirit] shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs [this word of God they speak with Him] and everlasting joy [realizing His presence with us, in us] upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Jeremiah 7
3 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.
4 Trust you not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these [defiled places].
5 For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if you thoroughly execute [My good] judgment between a man and his neighbor;
6 If you oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place [as the wicked do this day, openly without shame, as terrorists hoping to cause terror], neither walk after other gods to your hurt [as do the wicked in their daily broadcasts, misleading, gaslighting, and worshiping those manipulating the world into their evil ways and ever darkening tribulation]:
7 Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land [‘erets – this earth] that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever.
8 Behold, you trust in lying words, that cannot profit.
9 Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal [the false gods of this insane world], and walk after other gods whom you know not;
10 And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations [you’ve put in My place]?
11 Is this house, which is called by my name [wherein My identity should be manifested], become a den of robbers [priyts] in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it [by My sight that isn’t defiled by your beam of corruption], says the LORD.

Friends, Paul, twice in his writing to the Thessalonians, about the tribulation and from whom it comes, reminds them of things he has told them before. The first is in 1 Thessalonians 3:4, after, in the previous chapter, he speaks to them as those who’ve received this word “from us” (him, and Timothy present with them, in whom the LORD’s presence is manifested, as He is this day with those who receive this word as His) as the word of God, as it is, and not of man, and says they are thereby “in the presence our LORD Jesus Christ at His coming.”
Chapter 3 continues from this declaration, saying it is for this cause he (the LORD in Him speaking) sent Timothy (I Am) to them: those of Thessalonike, who get the “victory over falsity:” over the fruit (karpos) of the false prophets and false teaching among them doing the work of Satan: the evil spirit possessing them.

In the second (reminder), in 2 Thessalonians 2:5, he speaks of the mystery of iniquity was already (as described above) at work, in men possessed by Satan, doing his work with all lying signs and worders, as they sit in the temple of God, which they defile with their abominations (while saying, “the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, are these”), and where they sit opposing Him in His place, showing themselves as if they are gods.

Acts 17
11 These were more noble [“well-born,” the religious in Berea: because they are now “well-watered”] than those [the religious, who think they are infallible, those Paul says are possessed by Satan, hindering the word of God and opposing His work] in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

1 Thessalonians 2
18 Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered [egkopto – by cutting into: scattering the elements of understanding] us.
19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even you in the presence of our LORD Jesus Christ at his coming?
20 For you are our glory and joy [when you realize you are in His presence].

1 Thessalonians 3
1 Wherefore when we could no longer forbear [stego – meaning they are staying hidden by their silence], we thought it good to be left at Athens [leaving uncertainty – to end your doubting the LORD’s presence in us] alone [separating you from the ONE BODY];
2 And sent Timothy, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellow-laborer in the gospel of Christ, to establish [sterizo – meaning “to set fast, i.e. (literally) to turn resolutely in a certain direction, or (figuratively) to confirm”] you, and to comfort [parakaleo – as the Paraclete, the LORD in me working and speaking unknown; to call you near to Himself, to join with Him in His ONE BODY] you concerning your faith [believing it is Him]:
3 That no man should be moved [from your faith in Him] by these afflictions [thilipsis]: for yourselves know that we are appointed [keimai – where the LORD’s dead body “lay” before He was risen from the dead, the city “set” on a hill that can no longer be hidden in silence] thereunto.
4 For truly, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation [thlibo – only rendered as such this once, the narrowing the LORD speaks of]; even as it [now] came to pass, and you know.
5 For this cause, when I could no longer forbear [stego – stay hidden in your silence], I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter [denying the LORD’s presence] have tempted you [and you continue in your silence, not declaring His presence], and our labor [to the end that we all come to life, and, awakened, rise with Him into His ONE BODY] be in vain.
6 But NOW when Timothy came from you unto us [was raised to life from the dead among you], and brought us [those waiting to be awakened with me] good tidings [declaring the LORD alive with us] of your faith [by which you believe He is] and charity [agape – will give the same word as received from Him], and that you have good remembrance [mneia – recollection, making mention of, as with Joseph when he was in prison] of us always [by which we again see the LORD’s living ONE BODY], desiring greatly to see us, as we also to see you:
7 Therefore, brethren, we were comforted [parakaleo – called near] over you in all our affliction [thilipsis] and distress by your faith:
8 For now we live, if you stand fast [steko] in the LORD.

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

Hebrews 12
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses [in whom this understanding is held, reserved therein for the time of war, when your silence is ended and your mouths are opened], let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not you the chastening of the LORD, nor faint when you are rebuked of him:
6 For whom the LORD loves he chastens and scourges every son whom he receives.

25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven [this place of full understanding]:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together [into His ONE BODY] unto him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means [calling themselves infallible, saying have not fallen away from the LORD into apostacy]: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [apostasia – apostasy, led by Satan possessed men sitting in the LORD’s place and defiling it, His temple, the minds of men, with their abomination: doctrines men put in His place] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [in the pattern of Reuben, who put himself in his father’s place and defiled it];
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now you know what withholds [katecho – holds you down] that he [Satan possessing men] might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work [Satan already possessing men who were then like now hindering, resisting, the LORD’s work, the free course of His word from His chosen]: only he who now lets [katecho – hold you down] will let [hold you down, keeping all from rising with the LORD into His ONE heavenly BODY], until he be taken out of the way [mesos – from our midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth [this word heard and declares as His presence], and shall destroy with the brightness [giving understanding] of his coming:
9 Even him [the LORD Himself], whose coming is after the working of Satan [scattering the element of understanding] with all power [of deception] and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish [by following those who put themselves in the Father’s place]; because they received not the love of the truth [His presence manifested in His word], that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned [krino – be their decision to remain in darkness, to remain insane, never realizing reality] who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the LORD, because God has from the beginning [arche] chosen you to salvation through sanctification of [hagiasmos – purification by] the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called [kaleo] you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ [revealed in you].
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast [steko – upon the LORD’s word, the Rock by which we live], and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

John 1
1 In the beginning [arche] was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning [arche] with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light [phos – understanding] of men.
5 And the light [phos] shines in darkness [was gives into this time when ignorance covers the earth silencing His word]; and the darkness comprehended it not.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Ezekiel 7
20 As for the beauty of his [the LORD’s] ornament, he [the LORD] set it in majesty: but they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things therein [His place]: therefore have I [the LORD] set it far from them.
21 And I [the LORD] will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
22 My face [paniym – My presence] will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret [tsaphan] place [where these treasure of understanding are held]: for the robbers [priyts] shall enter into it, and defile it [as they have].
23 Make a chain [to bind these men in their own darkness]: for the land [‘erets – the earth] is full of bloody crimes, and the city [of peace] is full of violence.
24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they [those possessed by Satan] shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.
25 Destruction comes; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
26 Mischief [hovah, from havah] shall come upon mischief [hovah], and rumor [shmuw’ah, this voice of Jehovah heard] shall be upon rumor [shmuw’ah, His voice teaching, precept upon precept, line upon line] then shall they seek a vision of the [false] prophet[s]; but the law shall perish from the priest[s], and counsel from the ancients [all the robbers who’ve put themselves in My place]. [The word hovah, referring to the effects of the strong delusion the LORD has sent upon the insane, only appears one other time, in Isaiah 47:11, saying “Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shall not know from whence it rises: and mischief {hovah} shall fall upon you; you shall not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know {because you’ve been chained in your own ignorance}.”]
27 The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land [‘erets] shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts [mishpat – according to their corrupt judgment, by the precedent of their evil shall the evil judge them, and thereby] will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 18
5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
6 And has not eaten upon [corrupted and committed robbery by] the mountains [committed this violence by the governments of church and state], neither has lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither has defiled [with their corruption] his neighbor’s wife, neither has come near to a menstruous woman [the church defiled in the blood they’ve shed],
7 And has not oppressed any, but has restored to the debtor his pledge [the money they say we own in tithes and taxes, which went into their pockets], has spoiled none by violence, has given his bread [this word of truth] to the hungry, and has covered the naked with a garment [the LORD righteousness, His right, reality-based, thinking];
8 He that has not given forth upon usury [the money they steal by exorbitant interest rates], neither has taken any increase [stealing men’s wages and profits], that has withdrawn his hand from iniquity, has executed true judgment between man and man,
9 Has walked in my statutes, and has kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, says the LORD God.
10 If he begets a son that is a robber [priyts], a shedder of blood, and that does the like to any one of these things,
11 And that does not any of those duties [mentioned in verses 7 thru 9], but even has eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbor’s wife,
12 Has oppressed the poor [without worldly power] and needy, has spoiled by violence, has not restored the pledge, and has lifted up his eyes to the idols, has committed abominations [they put in the LORD’s place],
13 Has given forth upon usury, and has taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he has done all these abominations [by the power of government in church and state]; he shall surely die; his blood [the means by which he has shed innocent blood] shall be upon him.

Daniel 11
13 For the king of the north [the Democrats, the communists in power, and their army of darkness] shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches [the national treasury supporting their evil deeds].
14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south [the Republicans, or rather those who claim to be]: also the robbers [priyth] of your people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision [their vision of government, as they see it, with a different, kinder, gentler, form of oppression]; but they shall fall.
15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities [from where they steal elections by mass vote fraud they all know and condone]: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand [their power to deceive, known liars telling known lies, know false accusers with known false accusation, which the opposition party never oppose].
16 But he that comes against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.
17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength [understanding] of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.
32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be helped with a little help: but many [false preachers and false prophets] shall cleave to them [be in their midst] with flatteries.
35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end [qets]: because it is yet for a time appointed [mow’ed].

Psalms 39
1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spoke I with my tongue,
4 LORD, make me to know my end [qets], and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am.
5 Behold, you have made my days as a handbreadth; and my age is as nothing before you: truly every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
6 Surely every man walketh in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heaps up riches, and knows not who shall gather them.
7 And now, LORD, what wait I for? my hope is in you.
8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because you did it.
10 Remove your stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of your hand.
11 When you with rebukes do correct man for iniquity, you make his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not your peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with you, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

Psalms 74
1 O God, why have you cast us off forever? why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your pasture?
2 Remember your congregation [‘edah], which you have purchased of old; the rod of your inheritance, which you have redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein you have dwelt.
3 Lift up your feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy has done wickedly in the sanctuary.
4 Your enemies roar in the midst of your congregations [mow’ed – this appointed time]; they set up their [evil] ensigns for signs.
5 A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees [cutting down the upright].
6 But now they break down the carved work [even the idols they made and put in Your place] thereof at once with axes and hammers.
7 They have cast fire into your sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of your name [identity] to the ground.
8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues [mow’ed – at this appointed time] of God in the land [‘erets, in the earth].
9 We [because the false teachers destroyed our sight] see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knows how long.
10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme your name forever?
11 Why withdraw you your hand, even your right hand [of Your power]? pluck it out of your bosom.
12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 You did divide the sea by your strength: you broke the heads of the dragons in the waters [men, like serpents and whales, with their words devouring men and swallowing them into hell].
14 You broke the heads of leviathan in pieces [the rivers in which the wicked flow their poison into the sea: humanity at large], and gave him to be meat [gave an understanding of the depths of the depravity in their words] to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15 You did cleave the fountain and the flood: you dried up mighty rivers.
16 The day [when light has come] is yours, the night [the time when ignorance covers the earth] also is yours: you have prepared the light [understanding] and the sun [by which it comes as a new day].
17 You have set all the borders [the ends and beginnings of the ages] of the earth: you have made summer and winter.
18 Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed your name.
19 O deliver not the soul of your turtledove [dove – those who know this is the time of the end of darkness, and opening their mouths is the sign of it] unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation [chay – the living, man of the new creation] of your poor forever [those without worldly power].
20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places [the ignorant powers] of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise your name.
22 Arise, O God, plead your own cause: remember how the foolish man reproaches you daily.
23 Forget not the voice of your enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against you increase continually.

Psalms 28
1 Unto you will I cry, O LORD my Rock; be not silent to me: lest, if you be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto you, when I lift up my hands toward your holy oracle [exalting this word].
3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts.
4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavors: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
5 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
6 Blessed be the LORD, because he has heard the voice of my supplications.
7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore, my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song [repeating His words] will I praise him.
8 The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
9 Save your people, and bless your inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up forever.

Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

6 – 9 May 2024

Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

The above, Ezekiel 3:12, is Ezekiel speaking of the presence of the LORD he experienced, how He unfolded Himself to him, and then (recorded in the prior verse) told him to write and send what He saw to those of the captivity (here and now in Babylon). In the title verse, he sees this encompassing event as a wheel within a wheel: the word of God received as His word, giving him understanding wherein is light and the creation of life, which he then, in written form, sends forward to give the same understanding to those for whom the LORD predestined it.

Ezekiel 3
8 Behold, I have made your face strong against [‘ummah] their faces, and your forehead strong against [‘ummah] their foreheads [depicted in the cherubim face to face above the mercy seat, where My presence is manifested in the conversation].
9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto you receive in your heart [mind], and hear with your ears.
11 And go, get you to them of the captivity, unto the children of your people, and speak [with My voice] unto them, and tell them, Thus says the LORD God; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.

Suffer me once again while I must digress. Throughout history, and in our time, many have speculated, fanaticized, and fictitiously, in words and images, depicted their opinions, delusions they called reality, of Ezekiel’s wheel within a wheel. These acts of ignorance are works of men unable to fully comprehend the meaning in his (Ezekiel’s) exact description of the LORD manifesting His presence in a conversation that transcends time and joins dimensions (physical and metaphysical, words and thoughts uniting, as reality).

The Hebrew word in the title verse rendered “rushing” (which he tells us is a “voice:” qowl), is ra’ash, which we’ve seen is the word rendered “shaking” in Ezekiel 37:7, speaking of what brings the dead bones together.

This joining is depicted in the words of the original text of Ezekiel 3:13, saying “I heard also the noise [qowl – the voice] of the wings [giving the strength that raises us into heaven] of the living creatures [chay – creating life] that touched [nashaq – joining] one [‘ishshah – woman; the church] another [‘achowth – to her sisters], and the noise [qowl – voice] of the wheels [of this understanding sent] over against [as in Ezekiel 3:8 above, ‘ummah – sent alongside them: the LORD’s Spirit moving upon them as the Paraclete to] them, and a noise [qowl] of a great rushing [ra’ash – bringing the dead bones together].”

This form of the word ra’ash only appears two other times in Ezekiel; the first, in Ezekiel 12:18, as he is told to eat this word of God with “trembling,” meaning to take great care, use much discretion, in how it is divided, not to do it violence as so many others have, but shaking from it the wickedness they’ve added.

The other (use of ra’ash #7494) comes in Ezekiel 38:19, as the LORD speaks of this shaking in this generation of God’s new creation.

Ezekiel 12
17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
18 Son of man, eat your bread with quaking [ra’ash], and drink your water with trembling and with carefulness;
19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus says the LORD God of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.
20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
21 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
22 Son of man, what is that proverb that you have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision fails?
23 Tell them therefore, Thus says the LORD God; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.
24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.
25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, says the LORD God.
26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying.
27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he sees is for many days to come, and he prophesies of the times that are far off [rachowq – this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men in power].
28 Therefore say unto them, Thus says the LORD God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, says the LORD God.

The word rendered “carefulness” in verses 18 & 19 above is d’agah, meaning “anxiety:–care(-fulness), fear, heaviness, sorrow.” In its one other use in Ezekiel, in Ezekiel 4:14, we are told why men should fear this, because those who don’t use the LORD’s word “with care” will “consume away,” from the word maqaq, which we know from its use three times in Zechariah 14:12.

It (d’agah) bears an unstated affinity to the word dag, dagah, and Dagown; which we know, respectively, as the “fish” that swallowed Jonah, in whose (“fish’s”) belly he was held, and the idol Dagon, all speaking of what (deception below the surface of the water) agitates the sea and cause the storms upon its waters. We also understand this “fish’s belly” is where and what Jonah called (in Jonah 2:2) the “belly of hell,” which the LORD said was the “belly of the earth,” where (among the dead) He said He would be held for three days and three nights until (from there He rises from among the dead) we see Him again and with Him rise.

By this understanding we realized the “care” and “carefulness,” with which we should eat bread and drink water, meaning what teaching and words we consume, which form our understanding, because if they are defiled (corrupted by men’s excrement), they are the belly of hell into which we’re swallowed and held until we again see the LORD and He frees us by His uncorrupted truth.

Ezekiel 4
7 Therefore you shall set your face [as an adamant harder than flint] toward the siege of Jerusalem [God’s people held in corruption], and your arm [My presence working in You] shall be uncovered, and you shall prophesy against it.
8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon you, and you shall not turn you from one side to another, till you have ended [kalah] the days of your siege.

13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread [the written word to which men have added pollution] among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.
14 Then said I, Ah LORD God! behold, my soul has not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dies of itself [the words of the dead that defile], or is torn in pieces [separating the elements of understanding]; neither came there abominable flesh [the idols men created, put in the LORD’s place, and call by His name] into my mouth.
15 Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given you cow’s dung for man’s dung, and you shall prepare your bread therewith [showing men’s teaching the LORD’s word is corrupted by excrement they have added].
16 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread [teaching by which men mislead My flock] in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care [d’agah]; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
17 That they may want [lack this uncorrupted] bread and water, and be astonished [shamem – stupefied, mentally desolate, not know] one [‘ish – a man] with another [‘ach – his brother, relating to Ezekiel 3:13], and consume [maqaq] away for their iniquity.

Ezekiel’s vision is of the presence of God manifested into our minds, unseen in His word, by which He interacts with our thoughts, reshapes our perception, by which we realize He is the metaphysical influence, His identity, as His words create physical reality from the aether (the unseen waves of these interactions).

From here, they (the above-stated means) carry us to the word aurion (the same as air, the unseen substance we unconsciously breathe to live), said to mean fresh air, used fifteen times, and rendered “morrow,” “tomorrow,” and “next day.”

Its (aurion’s) seemingly most innocuous uses come as LORD Jesus speaks (unknown to those hearing it) in patterns telling of His time here in the belly of hell, the time (in abeyance) between then and when He is seen again in glory, as the LORD of the furnace (Cyrus), walking with us in the flames and not burning up, as in the bush.

Matthew 6
1 Take heed that you do not your alms [giving this word as received, making a show of charity] before men, to be seen [admired and praised] of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Truly I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when you do alms [giving this word], let not your left hand know what your right hand does [Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters {giving it to those who don’t know its manna from the mouth of the LORD}: for you shall find it after many days.]:
4 That your alms [what you are giving] may be in secret: and your Father which sees in secret himself shall reward you openly [opening these treasures to those who then obey and give as He has given].
5 And when you pray [speak, converse, with the Farther], you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Truly I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But you, when you pray [converse with the Father], enter into your closet [tameion – a four times used word, here meaning storage room], and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly. [This verse refers us to Luke 12:2 & 3, saying “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore, whatsoever you have spoken in darkness {to the deaf and ignorant} shall be heard in the light {when understanding comes}; and that which you have spoken in the ear in closets {tameion} shall be proclaimed upon the housetops {openly}.”]
7 But when you pray, use not vain [worthless] repetitions, as the heathen [who don’t know the LORD] do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not you therefore like unto them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.
9 After this manner [ask for things of true value] therefore pray you: Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name [your identity when it’s revealed from Your place of full understanding].
10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven [giving this full understanding upon all freely, as received].
11 Give us this day our daily bread [this word from Your mouth].
12 And forgive us our debts [the sin on our account, which we cannot pay for], as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation [as those who’ve misled have doubted Your presence with us], but deliver us from evil [the misleading of these doubters]: For yours is the kingdom, and the power [to change us], and the glory [Your presence therein manifested], forever. Amen.
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when you fast [abstaining from men’s corrupt teaching], be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Truly I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face;
18 That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father which is in secret: and your Father, which sees in secret, shall reward you openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth [to be admired and praised of men], where moth and rust does corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven [from where is received this understanding, which is of the greatest value], where neither moth nor rust does corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light [understanding] of the body is the eye [seeing as the LORD sees], if therefore your eye be single [all seeing as the LORD sees], your whole [ONE] body shall be full of light [this understanding].
23 But if your eye be evil [misleading], your whole body shall be full of darkness [in ignorance]. If therefore the light [understanding] that is in you be darkness [ignorance], how great is that darkness [ignorance]!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [confidence in self or earthly wealth, the darkness that comes by trusting your own worthless opinions, as if they were truth].
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat [more than your flesh], and the body [is more] than raiment [your flesh cover]?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow [aurion – as waves of light sent into this time of clarity] is cast into the oven [klibano – when the LORD takes hold of those He’s called], shall he not much more clothe you [into His Glorious ONE BODY], O you of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought [be careful not to create your own worthless bread and water], saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles [who don’t know the LORD will provide the things we need] seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things [and he will give bread, water, and a body to cover us].
33 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow [aurion – the manifestations of metaphysical into reality]: for the morrow [aurion – the metaphysical] shall take thought [make provisions] for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil [kakia – malice] thereof.

What is “sufficient” (enough) is those who’ve “taken thought,” conspired, to do evil intentionally, with malice. The point is, don’t add to it (the intentional evil) evil done in ignorance (partial understanding) by “taking thought,” conceiving ways to provide things only the LORD can, thereby putting yourself in His place as the Provider.

The word rendered six times above as “take thought” is merimnao, meaning to be anxious about. It’s from meros, from meiromai, meaning to get as a section or allotment.

1 Corinthians 13
8 Charity [agape – giving this word as received] never fail: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues [the word of the LORD without understanding its meaning], they shall cease; whether there be [men’s] knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part [meros], and we prophesy in part [meros].
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part [meros] shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly [ignorantly, until this word of the LORD’s charity comes]; but then face to face: now I know in part [meros]; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abides faith, hope, charity [agape], these three; but the greatest of these is charity [agape – giving this word as the LORD has given it].

1 Peter 2
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice [kakia], and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking,
2 As newborn babes, [as little children] desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow [into men] thereby:
3 If so be you have tasted that the LORD is gracious.
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen [eklektos] of God, and precious,
5 You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ [manifesting Himself alive in us when we obey the Father and speak His word].
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect [eklektos], precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded [but shall come to full understanding].
7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient [and refuse to speak as commanded], the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
9 But you are a chosen [eklektos] generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called [kaleo] you out of darkness [ignorance] into his marvelous [eye opening] light [understanding];
10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy [in this conversation with Him at His mercy seat].
11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation [episkope – when He has come, now realized, as the Chief Overseer of the earth].

Paul tells us exactly the name, the identity of the chosen one the LORD would send. The disobedient, the incorrigibles, the despisers who will forever wonder what they are experiencing, even though a man (I Am), risen from among the dead, declares it to them.

Philippians 2
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither labored in vain.
17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.
18 For the same cause also do you joy, and rejoice with me.
19 But I trust in the LORD Jesus to send Timothy shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state [peri].
20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally [only used here, gnesios, from genesis, bring the new creation] care [merimnao – supply the parts unknown] for your state [peri].
21 For all seek their own [ways, creating their provisions, their own opinions], not the things which are Jesus Christ’s [and provided, rightly divided, to us by Him].
22 But you know the proof of him [having tasted it], that, as a son with the father, he has served with me in the gospel.
23 Him therefore I hope to send presently [exautes – instantly], so soon as I shall see [apeido – fully understand: know and see Him] how it will go with [peri – state of] me [after Timothy has cared for him here, and he knows it, as in verse 19 & 29 above].

Do you understand what Paul knew he would see, and be resurrected by? He knew He would see what Ezekiel saw unfold before his eyes.

2 Timothy 4
1 I [Paul] charge you therefore [Timothy, I Am] before God, and the LORD Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing [epiphaneia – epiphany, the sudden realization] and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch you in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry.
6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure [analusis – “a dissolving (into separate parts)”] is at hand.
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love [agapao – give His word reassembling the parts, which is] His appearing [epiphaneia – epiphany].

Ezekiel 1
1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar [“far off,” where his word would be sent, as the LORD’s word, before his, was sent to him, in written form], that the heavens were opened [and understanding was given by the word as the LORD’s presence moved upon it], and I saw visions [of the manifested presence and identity] of God.
2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin’s [Coniah – Jehovah will establish in the] captivity,
3 The word of the LORD [Jehovah] came expressly [hayah – as Jehovah’s manifested presence] unto Ezekiel [who God has strengthened] the priest, the son of Buzi [with contempt], in the land of [‘erets – the earth under the rule of] the Chaldeans [those using their dark, deceptive, words as the means, manipulation, of control] by the river Chebar [the word of the LORD that is carried “far off” through time]; and the hand [work] of the LORD [in His word] was there upon him.
4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind [the LORD’s Almighty Spirit moving upon the earth, from where His voice is heard] came out of the north [was heard out of this time of ignorance, when darkness covers the deep understanding of the earth], a great cloud [wherein understanding is held when its elements became separated and removed from the earth], and a fire [as a sword from His mouth rightly dividing His word from the corruption men added to it] enfolding itself, and a brightness [understanding shining from Him] was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber [chashmal, with affinity to the word chuwsh, meaning to hurry, be eager, as something made ready: a provision deployed], out of the midst of the fire.
5 Also out of the midst [from the word] thereof came the likeness [dmuwth – representations] of four living creatures [chay – creating life, from the light: the understanding they give]. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings [elevating each straight into the next level in the conversation].
7 And their feet were straight feet [never turning back as they went]; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot [rightly divided and their work clean to be consumed]: and they sparkled [natsats – shined brightly, giving understanding as they went] like the color [‘ayin – the eye, as a fountain of life] of burnished brass [polished so, in reflection, things are seen clearly].
8 And they had the hands of a man [doing the work] under their wings [joining all their work as One work] on their four sides; and they four had their faces [paniym – manifesting the LORD’s presence, the by the vision, eye, of God, as in verses 1 & 7] and their wings [their understanding lifting them].
9 Their wings were joined one to another [one conversation, in which the LORD manifests His presence]; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
10 As for the likeness of their faces [paniym – the LORD’s glory revealed in them], they four had the face of [paniym] a man [His presence manifested in the flesh], and the face [paniym] of a lion [His Almighty voice heard and received as His], [as depicted in the cherubim] on the right side [after it is received as such]: and they four had the face [paniym] of an ox [sent into the field, the earth, to do the LORD’s work] on the left side [as the other cherubim above the mercy seat, wherein the LORD presence is manifested in the conversation]; they four also had the face [paniym] of an eagle [raised in glory, the strength of the LORD’s full understanding exalted above all other voices].
[It is important to here pause and consider this representation is explaining the mystery of godliness, as Paul, the LORD in him, delineates it in 1 Timothy 3:16, saying “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was {is} manifest in the flesh {the man}, justified in the Spirit {working therein unknown, as a roaring lion, until he is}, seen of angels {when His word is received as His, seeing him, they become His messengers He sends into His field, as the ox}, preached {by the same understanding He’s given} unto the Gentiles {with the same conversation, the LORD engaging those who haven’t known Him}, believed {that His word is His presence manifested in the flesh of those He chooses and sends with His word} on in the world {His field}, received {by those hearing Him speaking} up into glory {as an eagle, with His strength, rising with full understanding to meet Him in heaven, a state of men’s minds here on the earth}.]
11 Thus were their faces [paniym – the LORD presence manifested in this way]: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies [so they are not seen, but the LORD in them, lifting them, is realized to be the ONE, Yahh, to whom it appertains {ya’ah}].
12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit [the LORD in them unknown working] was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
13 As for the likeness [dmuwth – the representation] of the living creatures [chay, as they created life, the LORD in them the source of the light: His understanding sent through this means], their appearance was like burning coals [gechel – glowing] of fire, and like the appearance of lamps [giving light so men can see their way in this time of darkness]: it [the glowing fire of these lamps] went up and down among the living creatures [chay – giving life to any who receive it as the LORD’s light]; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning [understanding from the cloud, from where His voice roared as thunder].
14 And the living creatures [chay – the life they gave] ran [ratsa’ – said to mean received, as in an almost identical word {ratsa’}, meaning to pierce; here Ezekiel is speaking of the epiphany, when the word pierced his ear and entered his mind, and he came to life: became the “living creatures”] and returned [shuwb – returned to his right mind and realized the LORD was with him and now alive in him] as the appearance of a flash of lightning [bazaq, only used here, speaking the epiphany as spoiling, causing him to disesteem, everything he thought he knew before]. [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 things {I thought I knew}, 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 {in His presence with me, in me}: 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.]
15 Now as I beheld the living creatures [Now, when I clearly see the life and how it comes], behold [I clearly saw] one wheel [‘owphan, this is a chariot wheel, as connected by an “axletree” to a wheel on the other side; it is a representation of the full course of the work of the Creator of life] of upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces [paniym – the full work of the LORD, giving Ezekiel full understanding and thereby raising him to life].
16 The appearance of the wheels [‘owphan – meaning to revolve, meaning going through this same cycle over and over again] and their work [the LORD’s work in this way] was like unto the color [‘ayin – was to be seen, by the eye and the description from the fountain, as] of a beryl [tarshiysh – a seven time used word always rendered beryl; it’s the name Tarshish, an epithet telling us it is like merchant ship traveling upon the sea; which, with further deconstruction, reveals a deeper meaning of it plucking {sharash} us from the mouths that are hell’s gates {tra’}] : and they four had one likeness [One message, One conversation]: and their appearance and their work [the LORD work in this manner] was as it were a wheel [‘owphan – a full revolution, giving life in this manner, sent thought time in written form, connected on the other side to those receiving it in the future into which it is sent] in the middle [tavek – bisected, connected in the center: both by the ONE, Yahh present in the work, to whom it appertains {ya’ah}, who rightly divides it] a wheel [the same understanding received, in the same way, producing the same life in the receiver who receives it as the LORD presence with them, and in them].
17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
18 As for their rings [gab – also meaning their back, what is seen after their work, when the LORD therein has long-suffered to take it full course], they were so high that they were dreadful [this is the fear that fell upon the men in the ship taking Jonah to Tarshish, when they realized {Jonah 1:16} it was the LORD to whom the storm appertained, and they vowed vows {nadar neder}]; and their rings [gab – when their work was complete] were full of eyes [‘ayin – all the colors therein, of the rightly divided light, were seen] round about [cabiyb – in the full circle of the LORD’s work in] them four.
19 And when the living creatures [the Creator of life] went, the wheels [this full circuit of His work] went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up [the LORD’s work exalted, His word separated] from [the works of men of] the earth, the wheels [His words] were lifted up [exalted above the words of men].
20 Whithersoever the spirit [of the LORD unknown] was to go, they [those the LORD chooses to work through and reveal Himself] went, thither was their spirit [the LORD unknown in them] to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them [to those who don’t know Him]: for the spirit of the living creature [the Creator of life] was in the wheels.
21 When those went, these went; and when those stood [to make Him known], these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature [the LORD, the Creator of life, is in them unknown doing the work] was in the wheels [the word sent and the flesh in whom He works].
22 And the likeness of the firmament [the exposition, spreading out the heaven before men, wherein the water of the earth are separated from the word of God, which the LORD calls Heaven {Genesis 1:6 – 8}] upon the heads [in the LORD’s mind] of the living creature [the Creator of life] was as the color [‘ayin – seen, by the words from the Fountain of living waters] of the terrible crystal [yare’ qerach – ice to be feared; the word of the LORD that He reserved, froze, in the cloud, to from there be sent now in this time of war], stretched forth [natah – bowed down the heavens, in the exposition; as seen in the previous post in Psalms 86:1 & 2 Samuel 22:10, when the LORD came down to help David when He asked] over their heads above [in the conversation wherein His presence is manifested above His mercy seat].
23 And under the firmament [in this exposition that rightly divides truth from falsehood] were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.
24 And when they went, I heard the noise [qowl – the voice] of their wings, like the noise [qowl – the voice] of great waters, as the voice [qowl] of the Almighty, the voice [qowl] of speech, as the noise [qowl] of a host [the LORD awakened army, He raises at His will]: when they stood, they let down their wings.
25 And there was [hayah] a voice [qowl – of the LORD’s presence] from the firmament [this exposition] that was over their heads [in the conversation above His mercy seat], when they stood, and had let down their wings.
26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne [of the LORD], as the appearance of a sapphire stone [cappiyr – referring to the first use of the word, Exodus 24:10, saying “And they {the obedient} saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone {cappiyr}, and as it {His way} were the body of heaven in his clearness.]: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man [‘adam – the second Adam, who is sent, I Am, as a quickening Spirit] above upon it.
27 And I saw as the color of amber [chashmal, with affinity to the word chuwsh, meaning to hurry, be eager, as something made ready: a provision deployed], as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness [light] round about.
28 As the appearance of the bow [the light divided into its many colors] that is in the cloud in the day of rain [as a sign from the LORD, the remembrance that He would never again destroy all flesh with a flood, but would come to the rescue of any and all who receive Him and enter His new heaven and earth with Him], so was the appearance of the brightness [the understanding] round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory [as in 1 Timothy 3:16 above, when He is exalted] of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one [I Am, the man] that spoke.

Friends, these are the wheels we’ve all now experienced, just as did Ezekiel. He, the LORD speaking through him, goes on in the following two chapters to describe the same event in much less cryptic terms. Please don’t misunderstand: the LORD is the One doing the work and speaking, freeing us to open our mouths when the cycle has run His course and overwritten our minds with His understanding. He, the Almighty, is truly alive in me, as He is in any who receive Him and lend themselves to diligently follow and learn of Him.

Hebrews 11
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Matthew 11
25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank you, O Father, LORD of heaven and earth, because you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes.
26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in your sight.
27 All things 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 [with the burdens of men’s corruption], and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you [join me in my work], 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.

Ezekiel 2
1 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand [as in Ezekiel 1:21, 24, & 25 above] upon your feet, and I will speak unto you [to make My presence known to you and in you]
2 And the spirit entered into me when he spoke unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spoke unto me.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send you to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.
4 For they are impudent children and stiff-hearted. I do send you unto them; and you shall say unto them, Thus says the LORD God.
5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there has been a prophet among them.
6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns [deceivers and misleaders] be with you, and you do dwell among scorpions [whose words are poisonous]: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7 And you shall speak my words unto them [in your flesh I shall manifest My presence, revealing the mystery of godliness. You shall see Me as I Am and become My angel preaching My words to those who haven’t known Me. They shall believe I Am alive in you and in your flesh I shall be glorified], whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
8 But you, son of man, hear what I say unto you; Be not you rebellious like that rebellious house: open your mouth, and eat that I give you.
9 And when I looked, behold, a hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll [mgillah – the volume] of a book was therein;
10 And he spread it [in the exposition] before [paniym – by His presence to] me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

Ezekiel 3
1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that you find [as you diligently seek Me]; eat this roll [mgillah], and go speak unto the house of Israel.
2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll [mgillah].
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause your belly to eat, and fill your bowels with this roll [mgillah] that I give you. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get you unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
5 For you are not sent to a people of a strange speech and of a hard language, but to the house of Israel;
6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of a hard language, whose words you can not understand. Surely, had I sent you to them, they would have hearkened unto you.
7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto [shama’ – and obey] you; for they will not hearken unto [shama’ – and obey] me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
8 Behold, I have made your face [paniym – My presence] strong against their faces [as depicted in the cherubim above the mercy seat], and your forehead strong against their foreheads.
9 As an adamant [shamiyr – as to pierce their hardened minds] harder than flint have I made your forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto you receive in your heart [into your mind, your memory], and hear [shama’ – and obey] with your ears [and I will broaden your ear when you commit My words to memory, and your ability to hear Me will increase].
11 And go, get you to them of the captivity [write my words to be sent to this time and place], unto the children of your people [who will therein find themselves written], and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus says the LORD God; whether they will hear [shama’ – obey], or whether they will forbear [and refuse to hear or obey].
12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing [ra’ash – the shaking that brings the dead bones together, and cautions men to be careful how they handle this word and to whom they listen], saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.
13 I heard also the noise [qowl – voice] of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise [qowl – voice] of the wheels over against them, and a noise [qowl – voice] of a great rushing [ra’ash – the voice of the LORD now shaking heaven and earth].

Hebrews 12
21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
22 But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels [messengers sent to preach this same word],
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written [in the volume of the book] in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.
25 See that you refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on [Abel whose blood spoke from the] earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven [this place of full understanding, here in Heavenly New Jerusalem, here on the earth]:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those [corrupt] things that are shaken, as of things that are made [by men], that those things [of the LORD] which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace [receive this gift], whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 10
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do your will, O God.
8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin you would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do your will, O God [obeying your call, and taking up Your cross, making the necessary sacrifice, in which you delight], He takes away the first, that he may establish the second [the new and living way].
10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For by one offering he has perfected forever them that are sanctified.
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest [into the presence of the LORD] by the blood [necessary sacrifice] of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh [in whom He chooses to manifest His presence];
21 And having a high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith [in His presence] without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together [into His ONE BODY as He commands], as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and has done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, says the LORD. And again, The LORD shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Psalms 40
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3 And he has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
4 Blessed is that man that makes the LORD his trust, and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5 Many, O LORD my God, are your wonderful works which you have done, and your thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto you: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire; my ears have you opened [to hear and obey Your voice alone]: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume [mgillah] of the book it is written of me,
8 I delight to do your will, O my God: yea, your law is within my heart [in my mind].
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, you know.
10 I have not hid your righteousness within my heart; I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation: I have not concealed your lovingkindness and your truth from the great congregation.
11 Withhold not you your tender mercies from me, O LORD: let your lovingkindness and your truth continually preserve me.
12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: my iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head: therefore my heart fails me.
13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
16 Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: let such as love your salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
17 But I am poor and needy; yet the LORD thinks upon me: you are my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

Yet all this avails me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate.

1 – 5 May 2024

Yet all this avails me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate.

As we know, the name “Jew” (Yduwdiy), above in Esther 5:13, as today, refers specifically to a person of the tribe of Judah or a resident of the southern kingdom bearing the same name. It isn’t speaking of Israel, the northern kingdom, that wasn’t in Babylon but was carried away beyond Babylon, over the Caucus Mountains (long before Judah’s carrying away into Babylon) and became the Saxons (Isaac’s Sons). But I digress.

The title verse, as we see manifesting itself today, speaks of the enmity, the irrational and unreasonable hatred for Judah (as it is for Israel: the straight white, caucasian – Caucus Asians, Christians). It (the title verse) is Haman speaking, representing those having an abundance of wealth and power, but these things “avail” them no solace, and they, therefore, look for it (peace and rest of mind) in the destruction of those they (ignorantly) hate without cause (because they are at rest in peace).

The word rendered “avails” is shavah, meaning “properly, to level, i.e. equalize; figuratively, to resemble; by implication, to adjust (i.e. counterbalance, be suitable, compose, place, yield, etc.).”

It (shavah) bears an unstated affinity to the two words that transliterate as ‘avah. The first (#183) means “to wish for:–covet, (greatly) desire, be desirous, long, lust (after);” and the other (#5753) means “to crook, literally or figuratively (as follows):–do amiss, bow down, make crooked, commit iniquity, pervert, (do) perverse(-ly), trouble, X turn, do wickedly, do wrong.”

These words speak of peace and rest, which all unknowingly seek, which is found in only one place, in One Person. If sought in any other person or thing (idols men worship), other than the One to whom it appertains, it develops into (being carried away by) perverse thoughts, a corrupt conscience, and evil acts.

Romans 1
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet [an appropriate result].
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The above describes all Israel, all nations Christian and Jew, all but the very small elect (eklektos – eclectics, which, outside all the existing orders, received this word as His word and presence), fallen away into unbelief.

Romans 11
5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election [ekloge – chosen through this word] of grace [charis, Divine charity, this word He has freely given us, leading us into peace and rest, away from our dead works].
6 And if by grace [this word freely given to us by the LORD], then is it no more of [men’s] works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of [men’s] works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more [the LORD’s] work.
7 What then? Israel has not obtained that which he seeks for [peace and rest in the LORD]; but the election has obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
8 (According as it is written [in Isaiah 29:10], “God has given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.”
9 And David says [in Psalms 69:23], “Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling-block, and a recompense unto them:
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back always.”
11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles [those who haven’t known Him and weren’t seeking Him], for to provoke them to jealousy.
12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of [these treasures sent to] the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of [these treasures sent to] the Gentiles; how much more their fulness [when they receive the same treasures and are thereby awakened from their sleep]?
13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify my office:
14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
16 For if the first-fruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches. But if you boast, you bear not the root, but the root you.
19 You will say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief [not believing the LORD was among them in the flesh speaking and working] they were broken off, and you stand by faith [that He is]. Be not high-minded, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not you.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness: otherwise, you also shall be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written [in Isaiah 59:20, “There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”
28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election [ekloge – those chosen through this word], they are beloved for the father’s sakes.
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30 For as you in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy [the Father’s correction] they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God has concluded them all in unbelief [all their vain religious orders], that he might have mercy [send His correction] upon all.
33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
34 For who has known the mind of the LORD? or who has been his counselor?
35 Or who has first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things [do all things appertain]: to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Isaiah 29
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; 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, and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers has he covered.
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed:
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 [minds] far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the [corrupt] precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous [eye opening] work among this people, even a marvelous [‘eye opening] work and a wonder [an experience they have not understood]: for [because] the wisdom of their [self-described, falsely so called] wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their [self-describe, falsely so-called] prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep [into their own corrupt understanding] to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark [works of ignorance], and they say, Who sees us? and who knows us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down [calling His good evil and your evil good] shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay [formed as I choose to form it]: for shall the work [of the LORD] say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed [by the LORD] say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

Psalms 68
1 Sing unto God, you kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the LORD; Selah:
33 To him that rides upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he does send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.
34 Ascribe you strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds [from where this understanding comes].
35 O God, you are terrible out of your holy places: the God of Israel is he that gives strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.

To the Chief Musician upon Shoshannim [the blowing of trumpets, calling all to gather into His ONE BODY] A Psalms [song] of David

Psalms 69
1 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
2 I sink in deep mire [men have stirred and clouded all clarity], [the corrupt understanding] where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods [of wicked men] overflow me [and keep me in the belly of the earth, here in hell among the dead].
3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: my eyes [the eyes of the dead body of Christ] fail [kalah – all sight has ended] while I wait for my God.
4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head: they that would destroy me, being my enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that [understanding] which I took not away.
5 O God, you know my foolishness [of my dead flesh]; and my sins are not hid from you.
6 Let not them that wait on you, O LORD God of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek you be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.
7 Because for your sake I have borne reproach [cherpah – of those trying to disgrace me]; shame has covered my face [paniym – Your presence in me].
8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.
9 For the zeal of your house [my actions, which men think are foolishness] has eaten me up [and holds me in the belly of hell among the dead who refuse to rise]; and the reproaches [cherpah- those trying to disgrace me] of them that reproached You [charaph – trying to remove Your presence from me] are fallen upon me.
10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting [refused their words and was corrected by You], that was to my reproach [cherpah].
11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
12 They that sit in the gate [of hell] speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards [repeating their corrupt words and ignorant understanding].
13 But as for me, my prayer [conversation] is unto you, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of your mercy hear me, in the truth of your salvation.
14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters [of the ignorant].
15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
16 Hear me, O LORD; for your lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of your tender mercies.
17 And hide not your face [paniym – Your presence] from your servant; for I am in trouble [tsar – by these enemies]: hear me speedily.
18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of my enemies.
19 You have known my reproach [cherpah – how these evil men seek to dis-grace me], and my shame, and my dishonor: my adversaries [tsarar – who are the troubles] are all before you.
20 Reproach [cherpah – those trying to disgrace me] has broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters [nacham], but I found none.
21 They gave me also gall for my meat [continuing in their corruption saying it was Your strength]; and in my thirst [when the dead body was without Your word] they gave me vinegar to drink.
22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
23 Let their eyes be darkened [as they are], that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
24 Pour out your indignation [za’am] upon them, and let your wrathful anger take hold of them.
25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.
26 For they persecute him whom you have smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom you have wounded.
27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into your righteousness.
28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
29 But I am poor [without worldly power] and sorrowful: let your salvation [yshuw’ah – Jehovah’s Salvation in my flesh, Jesus manifested in me], O God, set me up on high [sagab – be exalted above all others].
30 I will praise the name [identity] of God with a song [repeating the words He gave me to give], and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
31 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that has horns and hoofs.
32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despises not his prisoners.
34 Let the [new] heaven and earth praise him, the seas [all humanity, into which this understanding flows], and every thing that moves therein.
35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name [identity] shall dwell therein.

The word shavah also has an unstated affinity to the word hava’ (havah), meaning “a primitive root (compare 183 [‘avah], 1961 [hayah]) supposed to mean properly, to breathe; to be (in the sense of existence):–be, X have.”

In the title verse, it (shavah) comes in one of five acrostics in Esther, four spelling “Jehovah” and the other “I Am.” As we’ve often discussed, the LORD’s name is never mentioned in Esther. He does appear there in secret as Ahasuerus, a title meaning “I will be silent and poor,” speaking of the LORD among us unknown, disguised in the flesh, not displaying His Divine power openly, and His name (identity) unspoken.

These acrostics appear at pivotal events: the forth, (I Am) appearing (in Esther 7:5) when the enemy among us (in the LORD’s government) plotting to destroy all His people (the remnant of Judah) is exposed, and the last (in Esther 7:7) when he (Haman) realized “THAT THERE WAS EVIL DETERMINED AGAINST HIM.”

Esther 7
3 Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request:
4 For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy [tsar] could not countervail [shavah – the last of three times it appears in Esther, meaning Haman, to satisfy his evil desire, couldn’t change the LORD’s good decree] the king’s damage [LORD’s change, over riding the evil decrees of our time, by which men rule those they hate into destruction].
5 Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, WHO IS HE, AND WHERE IS HE, that durst presume in his heart to do so?
6 And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.
7 And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw THAT THERE WAS EVIL DETERMINED [kalah – the end, in Daniel 12:7, “accomplished” and “finished” at the appointed time: the mow’ed] AGAINST HIM, by the king.
8 Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine [here and now]; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was [as in the pattern of Reuben, the son of perdition, those in God’s house, putting themselves in His place]. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face.
9 And Harbonah [Har banah; mountain builder; raised by the LORD’s understanding {biyn}, to build His new government by purging out the evil and their corruption] one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who spoken good for the king, stand in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.
10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.

Esther 8
1 On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews’ enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her.
2 And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.
3 And Esther spoke yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away [’abar – cause us to Passover here and now from death into life, by ending] the mischief [ra’ – evil] of Haman the Agagite [as we know, this is the origin of the name Gog, representing all the enemies of God and His people throughout history, gathered here and now, along with the faithful, in the final battle of the long war between light and darkness], and his device [machashabah – the things they contrived for our destruction] that he had devised [chashab] against the Jews.
4 Then the king held out the golden scepter [the consent to rule] toward Esther. So Esther arose, and stood before the king,
5 And said, If it please the king, and if I have favor in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters [reversing the evil decrees of wicked men in power] devised [machashabah] by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite [the LORD will overturn all the enemies He has gathered here] which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king’s provinces:
6 For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred?
7 Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews.
8 Write you also for the Jews, as it like you, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s ring: for the writing which is written in the king’s name, and [as the LORD’s identity] sealed with the king’s ring, may no man reverse.
9 Then were the king’s scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan [of the LORD’s covering His people in His protection], on the three and twentieth day thereof; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded unto the Jews, and to the lieutenants, and the deputies and rulers of the provinces which are from India [fled away from] unto Ethiopia [those covered in darkness], an hundred twenty and seven provinces, unto every province according to the writing thereof, and unto every people after their language, and to the Jews according to their writing, and according to their language.
10 And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus’ name [identity], and sealed it with the king’s ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries:
11 Wherein the king granted the Jews which were in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, both little ones and women, and to take the spoil of them for a prey,
12 Upon one day in all the provinces of king Ahasuerus, namely, upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar.
13 The copy of the writing [today it is this writing] for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, and that the Jews [God’s elect here in Babylon, this time when the earth is ruled by the confusion, insanity, and the evil decrees of wicked men in power] should be ready [‘athiyd] against that day to avenge [naqam] themselves on their enemies.
14 So the posts [with this word] that rode upon mules and camels went out, being hastened and pressed on by the king’s commandment. And the [good] decree [against the evil decrees of men] was given at Shushan [from where this trumpet, the LORD’s voice, is heard calling all to gather to] the palace.
15 And Mordecai [a little man – with no worldly power] went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan [from where this trumpet is heard] rejoiced and was glad.
16 The Jews had light [understanding from heaven], and gladness, and joy [realizing to LORD’s presence with us, in us], and honor.
17 And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.

The word ‘athiyd, rendered “ready” in verse 13 above, only appears four other times, all speaking of when the days of wicked rule end, and God’s people are freed from their power (to deceive).

Deuteronomy 32 [The song of Moses]
31 For their rock [from where flows their deceptions, in which they trust] is not as our Rock [who is the LORD among us speaking and working, God in whom we trust], even our enemies themselves being [evil] judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
33 Their wine is the poison of dragons [tanniyn – men like serpents and whales, devouring with their wide open mouth those they swallow whole into the belly of their hell], and the cruel venom of asps [the poisonous words of serpents slithering among us].
34 Is not this laid up in store with me [reserved for this time of war], and sealed up [unknown] among my treasures?
35 To me belongs vengeance [naqam] and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come [‘athiyd – the things made ready for this moment] upon them make haste.
36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself [revealing His presence from His secret place, where His name is not heard] for his servants, when he sees that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left [with understanding].
37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,
38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices [pretending to be gods], and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.
39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
40 For I lift up [I Am] my hand to heaven, and say, I live forever.
41 If I whet my glittering sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment; I will render vengeance [naqam] to my enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword [this word they refuse] shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges [par’ah – meaning new leadership] upon the enemy.
43 Rejoice, O you nations, with his people: for he will avenge [naqam] the blood of his servants, and will render [shuwb – return their own ways] vengeance [naqam] to his adversaries [tsar], and will be merciful unto his land [‘adamah – this first generation of His new creation], and to his people.

The word par’ah (new leadership) only appears one other time, in Judges 5:2.

Judges 5
2 Praise you the LORD for the avenging [par’ah – raises up new leadership] of Israel [in One king over all God’s people who receive Him and obey His good leading through His king who leads], when the people willingly offered themselves [obey His good leading and join Him in His necessary sacrifice; as patterned, in Judges 11 below, in Jephthah and his only daughter]. [Another rendering of this verse is: “When leaders lead in Israel, When the people willingly offer themselves, Bless the LORD!”]
3 Hear [shama’ – and obey], O you kings; give ear, O you princes; I, even I, will sing [shiyr – as minstrels, singing on and of His right way] unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.
4 LORD, when you went out of Seir [the devils in power among us, misleading us into hell], when you marched out of the field of Edom [the enemies mix among us, saying they are at peace with us, as they war against us, our culture, our nation], the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped, the clouds also dropped water [sending Your understanding upon all].
5 The mountains [the governments of the earth] melted from before [paniym – at the presence of] the LORD, even that Sinai [governments overgrown with thorns, misleaders sitting in seat of power, fleeing away] from before [paniym – from the presence of] the LORD God of Israel.
6 In the days of Shamgar [the sword] the son of Anath [of the LORD’s answer], in the days of Jael [misleaders in governments going their own way], the highways [of the LORD] were unoccupied [no man therein walks], and the travelers walked through byways [on the worn paths of the degenerates before them].
7 The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah [ordered discourse] arose, that I arose a mother [teaching the highways, bringing up children] in Israel.
8 They [instead] chose new gods [the ways of the degenerates, men who led them in the fall]; then was war in the gates: was there a shield [magen] or spear [a defense and offense] seen among forty thousand in Israel?
9 My heart [mind] is toward the governors of Israel, that offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless you the LORD.
10 Speak [siyach – converse, utter these words the LORD gives us for offense and defense against the corrupters of the high way], you that ride on white asses [carried by purity], you that sit in judgment, and walk by the [LORD’s right] way, [shiyr – sing these words as you travel on this right way].
11 They that are delivered from the noise [qowl – voices] of archers [firing lies and false accusations] in the places of drawing water [where men go for their information and understanding], there shall they [the LORD’s army] rehearse [tanah – tell again: these words] the righteous acts of the LORD, even the righteous acts toward the inhabitants of his villages in Israel: then shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates [of heaven and hell, where the war now rages].

The only other time the word tanah appears, in Judges 11:40, it’s tell of the people speaking of the one (the LORD manifested in the flesh) who opens the gates and defeats the enemies who’ve scattered (the tribes, as Ammon) God’s people.

Judges 11
1 Now Jephthah [the one who opens] the Gileadite [this mountain of testimony] was a mighty man of valor [the LORD, a man of war], and he was the son of a harlot [born in the unfaithful church]: and Gilead [this mountain of testimony] begat [brought to life] Jephthah [the One who opens the gates, out of hell into the kingdom of heaven].
2 And Gilead’s wife bare him [other] sons; and his wife’s sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, You shall not inherit in our father’s house; for you are the son of a strange woman [not teaching the same corrupt doctrine as those who remain in the corrupt house].
3 Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land [‘erets – the earth] of Tob [good]: and there were gathered vain [with worthless understanding] men to Jephthah [the one who opens], and went out [out of worthlessness into good] with him.
4 And it came to pass in process of time, that the children of Ammon [tribal – those who scatter God’s people into weakness] made war against Israel.
5 And it was so, that when the children of Ammon made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob:
6 And they said unto Jephthah, Come, and be our captain, that we may fight with the children of Ammon.
7 And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, Did not you hate me, and expel me out of my father’s house? and why are you come unto me now when you are in distress [tsar – the evil of enemies]?
8 And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, Therefore we turn again to you now, that you mayest go with us, and fight against the children of Ammon, and be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead [over this mountain of the testimony, rightly dividing as none other is able {because the LORD is with me}].
9 And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, If you bring me home again to fight against the children of Ammon, and the LORD deliver them before me, shall I be your head?
10 And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, The LORD be witness between us, if we do not so according to your words.
11 Then Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and captain over them: and Jephthah [the one who opens] uttered [dabar – rightly orders these word; the origin of the name Deborah] all his words before [paniym – manifesting the presence of] the LORD in Mizpeh [watchtower, from where things are seen far off {in this time}].
12 And Jephthah sent messengers [mal’ak – angels carrying this same message as received from the LORD] unto the king of the children of Ammon [this would indicate the communist pope now sitting enthroned in God’s place, one of many who’ve scattered God’s people into ignorance and evil, as Satan’s minions opposing and resisting the LORD at His appearing and kingdom come on the earth as it is in heaven], saying, What have you to do with me, that you are come against me to fight in my land?
13 And the king of the children of Ammon answered unto the messengers of Jephthah, Because Israel took away my land [‘erets – the earth], when they came up out of Egypt, from Arnon [brawling waters, word meant to cause constant agitation] even unto Jabbok [pouring forth], and unto Jordan [carrying all in their descent into death: the dead sea]: now therefore restore those lands again peaceably.
14 And Jephthah sent messengers again unto the king of the children of Ammon:
15 And said unto him, Thus says Jephthah, Israel took not away the land of Moab [men’s mouths as the gates of hell], nor the land of the children of Ammon [those scattering God people]:
16 But when Israel came up from Egypt, and walked through the wilderness unto the Red sea [the reed sea, where the banks are known by the reed that grow there, from which papyrus was made, upon which this word is written], and came to Kadesh [holiness];
17 Then Israel sent messengers unto the king of Edom [the current administration, Barak, the false light, and his idiot son Brandon, confederate with the globalists and foreign communists, leading the enemies mixed among us, saying they’re our friends and neighbors, as they war against us, our culture, and our nation as Constituted], saying, Let me, I pray you, pass [‘abar – passover these waters of death into life] through your land [‘erets – in the earth]: but the king of Edom would not hearken thereto. And in like manner they sent unto the king of Moab [these are the loudest voices of church and state, misleading the world with their opinions, delusions they present as truth]: but he would not consent: and Israel abode in Kadesh [separated into holiness, with the LORD as ONE BODY].
18 Then they went along through the wilderness, and compassed the land of Edom, and the land of Moab, and came by the east side of the land of Moab, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, but came not within the border [gbuwl] of Moab: for Arnon [these brawling waters] was the border [gbuwl – are the limit] of Moab [of the gates of hell].
19 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon [warrior] king of the Amorites [the sayers, those exalting their words above this word of God], the king of Heshbon [the stronghold of the ignorant, exalting the words of men above God’s]; and Israel said unto him, Let us pass [‘abar – passover your words of death into life], we pray you, through your land [‘erets – the earth your words have totally corrupted] into my place [the new heaven and earth the LORD is creating].
20 But Sihon [these word warriors] trusted [‘aman – supported] not Israel to pass [‘abar] through his coast [the limit of their words, the end of their evil effect]: but Sihon [these warriors] gathered all his people together, and pitched in Jahaz [trodden down, their ways they refuse to yield], and fought against Israel.
21 And the LORD God of Israel delivered Sihon and all his people into the hand of Israel, and they smote them: so Israel possessed [yarash – inherited] all the land [‘erets – the old and corrupt earth] of the Amorites, the inhabitants of that country.
22 And they possessed [yarash – inherited] all the coasts [ending the rule] of the Amorites, from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and from the wilderness even unto Jordan.
23 So now the LORD God of Israel [the Creator and Owner of all the earth] has dispossessed [yarash] the Amorites [who’ve brought the earth to its current state of ruin] from before [paniym – by His presence with] his people Israel, and shouldest you possess [yarash ] it [to ruin it again]?
24 Will not you possess [yarash] that which Chemosh [subduer, of men by deception and falsehood] your god gives you to possess [yarash – inherit the hell he has given you]? So whomsoever the LORD our God shall drive out from before [paniym – by His presence with] us, them will we possess [yarash – inherit].
25 And now are you any thing better than Balak [waster] the son of Zippor, king of Moab? did he ever strive against Israel, or did he ever fight against them,
26 While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and her towns, and in Aroer and her towns, and in all the cities that be along by the coasts of Arnon, three hundred years? why therefore did you not recover them within that time?
27 Wherefore I have not sinned against you, but you do me wrong to war against me: the LORD the Judge be judge this day between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon.
28 Howbeit the king of the children of Ammon hearkened not unto the words of Jephthah which [this word] he sent him.
29 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon [hayah] Jephthah [the one who opens, and no man can shut what is opened], and he passed over [‘abar – passed over death into life] Gilead [by this mountain of the LORD’s testimony], and Manasseh [those who had forgotten the LORD], and passed over [‘abar – passed over death into life] Mizpeh [seeing this far off time has arrived] of Gilead [seeing it by this testimony], and from Mizpeh of Gilead he passed over [‘abar – from death into life] unto the children of Ammon [and overcoming them, gather into the LORD’s ONE BODY].
30 And Jephthah vowed [nadar] a vow [neder] unto the LORD [to follow no man, only the present LORD, declaring His this word is His presence], and said, If you shall without fail deliver the children of Ammon into my hands,
31 Then it shall be, that whatsoever comes forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from [the war against] the children of Ammon [who’ve scattered God’s people], shall surely be the LORD’s, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering [the necessary sacrifice that comes with speaking His word and declaring it is His presence manifested in our flesh].
32 So Jephthah passed over [‘abar – from death into life] unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the LORD delivered them into his hands.
33 And he smote them from Aroer [the ruin of the earth], even till you come to Minnith [this dispensation of truth], even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards [the earth seen as the LORD’s], with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued [kana’ – bent their knee, under the LORD’s rule] before [paniym – present with and in] the children of Israel.
34 And Jephthah came to Mizpeh [this time now seen, in the plain sight, that the earth is the LORD’s vineyard] unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child [the LORD’s ONE Risen BODY]; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.
35 And it came to pass [hayah], when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! you have brought me very low [kara’ – bend your knee to the LORD as I have bent mine], and you are [hayah] one of them that trouble [‘akar – roil these waters by not obeying] me: for I have opened my mouth [as you must open yours] unto the LORD and vowed a vow, [that I would offer the first thing from my house as a burnt offering], and I cannot go back.
36 And she said unto him, My father, if you have opened your mouth unto the LORD, do to me according to that which has proceeded out of your mouth; forasmuch as the LORD has taken vengeance for you of your enemies, even of the children of Ammon.
37 And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows.
38 And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months: and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains [declare there are no other voices above the LORD voice].
39 And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow [neder] which he had vowed [nadar]: and she knew no man [following only the LORD]. And it was a custom in Israel,
40 That the daughters of Israel went yearly to lament [tanah – rehearse, tell again, opening their mouth to the LORD, of] the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite four days in a year.

Job 15
17 I will show you, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare;
18 Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it:
19 Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed among them.
20 The wicked man travails with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.
21 A dreadful sound [the voices of wicked men] is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.
22 He believes not that he shall return out of darkness [into the light where His wickedness is uncovered in the apocalypse], and he is waited for of the sword [this word of God they refuse].
23 He wanders abroad for bread [looking for someone to explain what he is experiencing], saying, Where is it? he knows that the day of darkness [his ignorance] is ready at his hand.
24 Trouble [tsar] and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready [‘athiyd] to the battle.
25 For he stretches out his hand against God, and strengthens himself against the Almighty.

Isaiah 19
19 In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar [one stationed] at the border [gbuwl – at the limit, at the appointed time, the mow’ed] thereof to the LORD.
20 And it [the pillar at the border] shall be for a sign [‘owth] and for a witness [‘ed] unto the LORD of hosts [a man of war] in the land of Egypt [the earth under these oppressors]: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of [paniym – to manifest His presence against] the oppressors, and he shall send them a savior, and a great one, and he shall deliver [natsal – same as harpazo, “caught up,” “pulled”] them [from the fires of hell].
21 And the LORD shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day [this time of light], and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow [nadar] a [neder] vow unto the LORD, and perform it [shalam – “pay” it, as did Jonah].
22 And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be intreated [‘athar] of them, and shall heal them.
23 In that day shall there be a highway [of the LORD] out of Egypt [oppression] to [for those who were communists] Assyria, and the Assyrian [the former communists, whose minds are changed] shall come into Egypt [this land, earth, that was before rule by oppression], and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve [the LORD] with the Assyrians.
24 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land [‘erets – the earth]:
25 Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands [whose minds are changed], and Israel my inheritance [all now changed, as 1 Corinthians 15:51 & 52].

Psalms 76
1 In Judah [among the elect remnant] is God known: his name [identity] is great in Israel.
2 In Salem [peace] also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
3 There brakes he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
4 You are more glorious and excellent than the mountains of [the governments that are My] prey.
5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands [to do this work of the LORD and prevail in none of their works against Him].
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse [of the mighty are overthrown in these waters] are cast into a dead sleep.
7 You, even you, are to be feared [referring us to Jeremiah 10:7, and to Yahh to whom it appertains {ya’ah}; which is quoted Revelation 15:4, when God’s people sing the songs of Moses and of the Lamb, which is His wrath, the seven last plagues, against those who’ve refused to receive it as His word and presence]: and who may stand in your sight when once you are angry?
8 You did cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still [shaqat – quieted, calmed as the sea of glass mixed with this fire],
9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth [who shall inherit it]. Selah.
10 Surely the wrath of man [contrasted with the LORD’s, which is sent to save and not destroy] shall praise you: the remainder of wrath shall you restrain.
11 Vow [nadar], and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
12 He shall cut off the [evil] spirit of princes: he is terrible to the [wicked] kings of the earth.

The song of the Lamb: a Psalm of David, speaking of him as the necessary sacrifice the LORD sent into this tribulation, to calm them into a sea of glass mingled with His fire from His mouth:

Psalms 86
A Psalm of David
1 Bow down [natah] your ear, O LORD [Jehovah], hear me: for I am poor [without worldly power] and needy. [This verse refers us to 2 Samuel 22, verses 9 & 10 saying “There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed {natah} the heavens also, and came down; and darkness {the earth’s ignorance of Him} was under his feet.]
2 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O You my God, save Your servant that trusts in You.
3 Be merciful unto me, O LORD {‘Adonay – my King of kings]: for I cry unto You daily.
4 Rejoice the soul of Your servant: for unto You, O LORD [‘Adonay], do I lift up my soul.
5 For You, LORD [‘Adonay], are good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon You.
6 Give ear, O LORD [Jehovah], unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7 In the day of my trouble [this tribulation wherein I find myself, my soul, alive among the dead] I will call upon You: for You will answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like unto You, O LORD [‘Adonay]; neither are there any works like unto Your works.
9 All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You [paniym – in Your presence], O Lord; and shall glorify Your name [identity, I Am in this generation].
10 For You are great, and do wondrous things: You are God alone.
11 Teach me Your way, O LORD [Jehovah], I will walk in Your truth: unite my heart [with those having this same One Mind] to fear Your name [identity].
12 I will praise You, O LORD [‘Adonay] my God, with all my heart [mind]: and I will glorify Your name [identity] for evermore.
13 For great is Your mercy toward me: and You have delivered my [immortal] soul from the lowest hell.
14 O God, the proud [the dead here in hell] are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul [to keep me among the dead]; and have not set You before them.
15 But You, O LORD [‘Adonay], are a God full of compassion, and gracious, long-suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
16 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give Your strength unto Your servant, and save the son of Your handmaid.
17 Show me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because You, LORD [Jehovah], have helped me, and comforted me.

God has fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he has raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, “You are my Son, this day have I begotten you.”

27 – 30 April 2024

God has fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he has raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, “You are my Son, this day have I begotten you.”

The above, Acts 13:33, is speaking of the same “glad tidings” heard here, which is of the promises made to the fathers (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, et al.), fulfilled now, in the manner the title describes. The word there rendered “raised up” is said to be anistemi, meaning to stand up.

The word (rendered “raised up”) in the original text is anastasis, meaning “a standing up again, i.e. (literally) a resurrection from death (individual, genitive case or by implication, (its author)), or (figuratively) a (moral) recovery (of spiritual truth).” It is from this word’s meaning, that the word “again” is added, which doesn’t appear in the original text.

Even deeper, the Greek words rendered “I have begotten” are ego gennao, meaning I (Am) regenerated through procreation. The word said to be gennao, in the original text, is written as gegenneka, ge meaning soil: meaning from the earth, like from where Adam was created.

This understanding refers us to the LORD declaring His name to Moses in Exodus 3:14, saying “I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, I Am [in the flesh of Moses in that generation] has sent me unto you.”

As we know, the word rendered “I Am” is hayah, meaning “to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary).” It (hayah) is said to be the origin of the name Jehovah, said to mean “(the) self-Existent or Eternal.” The full origin of the name is in hayah, and ya’ah, the once used (in Jeremiah 10:7) word meaning “to be suitable:– [Yahh, to whom it] appertain.”

He (the LORD), again speaking to Moses, says in the following verse, “Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me unto you: this is my name forever [I Am in every generation], and this is my memorial [zeker – be remembered, by recall, the same calling, kaleo, of God, working and speaking unknown in this generation] unto all generations.”

It is from this latter verse, with this understanding, the LORD Jesus, in Matthew 22:31 & 32, referring to it, says, “But as touching the resurrection [anastasis] of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

Jeremiah 10
1 Hear [shama’ – and obey] you the word which the LORD speaks unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus says the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen [those who haven’t known Me in any generation], and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven [this full understanding seen here and now]; for the heathen [who don’t know I Am in every generation] are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cut a tree out of the forest [men they think are upright], the work of the hands of the workman [making them idols], with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not [from their corrupt position they’ve created].
5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not [according to this word, because there is no light in them]: they must need be borne [carried], because they cannot go [move on their own, but must be moved out of the way by the Spirit of the LORD moving upon the darkened deep]. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
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 does it appertain [ya’ah – pertaining to I Am]: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto you [none knowing the things only You know and teach us].
8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is [their idols are] a doctrine of vanities [worthless words].
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 [tsaraph – the refines of earthly value and outer appearance]: blue and purple is their clothing [covering the deception within, by which they rule]: they are all the work of cunning men [chakam – the wise men of this world, who the LORD confounds with His truth].
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 [to shake the wicked from it], and the nations [those refusing to know I Am] shall not be able to abide his indignation [za’am – which ends in these men’s destruction, which they should fear].
11 Thus shall you say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth [‘erets], even they shall perish from the [new] earth, and from under these [new] heavens.
12 He has made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens [this understanding spread before you] by his discretion.
13 When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens [by which His word from there comes], and he causes the vapors [the separated element of understanding] to ascend [leave the earth] from the ends of the earth [‘erets – being without understanding, ending the old and corrupt]; [and beginning the new] he [congealing the elements] makes lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures [by His Spirit moving upon the darkness He gives these gifts].
14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder [tsaraph] is confounded by the graven image [the idol they’ve created]: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath [life] in them.
15 They are vanity [worthless words], and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation [pquddah – this time when I Am come as the Chief Overseer of the earth] they shall perish.
16 The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he is the former of all things; and Israel [my family, the children of My correction] is the rod [shebet – the scepter to rule this new earth] of his inheritance: The LORD of hosts [a man of war] is his name [I Am, His denity].
17 Gather up your wares [pack and move] out of the land [‘erets – the old earth], O inhabitant of the fortress [matsowr – the place of oppression, against which I Am laying siege].
18 For thus says the LORD, Behold, I will sling [qala’ – a seven times used word referring us to its use in 1 Samuel 25:29; see below] out the inhabitants of the land [‘erets] at this once, and will distress them, that they may find it so.
19 Woe is me for my [the carcass of My dead body] hurt! my wound is grievous; but I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.
20 My tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth of me, and they are not [the same words Rachel cries out, in Jeremiah 31:15, speaking of Ephraim: God’s people at large in this last and first generation]: 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, and all their flocks shall be scattered [as it is].
22 Behold, the noise [qowl – the voice] of the bruit [shmuw’ah – the report heard from Jehovah, I Am in this generation of the dead who are raised to life] is come, and a great commotion [ra’ash – the voice “shaking” heaven and earth, which brings the dead bones together and causes men to discern and choose good over evil] out of the north country [revealed from the darkness of men’s ignorance], to make the cities of Judah [the current crop of corrupt leaders] desolate, and a den of dragons [tanniym – men as serpents and whales, with their wide open mouths devouring men and swallowing them into the belly of hell].
23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself [but to You it appertains, to guide and direct him into a good way]: it is not in man that walks [astray into his own evil way] to direct his steps.
24 O LORD, correct me [back onto the right path], 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 [You manifested identity: I Am]: for they have eaten up Jacob [and swallowed him into the belly of hell], and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation [this old and totally corrupt earth] desolate.

Matthew 12
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathers not with me scatters abroad.
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost [the LORD speaking and working unknown to those dead in their own ignorance, proven by them not knowing it’s Him even as He tells them – Acts 13:41 Behold {see Him}, you despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which you shall in no wise believe, though a man declares it {as I Am} unto you.], it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart [the foundational mind] the mouth speaks.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the [this] day of judgment.
37 For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from you.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah [coming from the belly of hell and calling all to repent]:
40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly [and from there said, “I cried by reason of my affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and you heard my voice.”]; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth [which is the habitation of the dead, in the grave in the earth, sheol].
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

1 Corinthians 1
9 God is faithful, by whom you were called [kaleo] unto the fellowship [koinonia – partnership: participation in His long-suffering] of his Son Jesus Christ our LORD. [Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection {anastasis}, and the fellowship {koinonia} of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of {exanastasis – only used this once, meaning through rising again from} the dead.]
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name [identity] of our LORD Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing [according to this word], and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1 Corinthians 15
12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection [anastasis] of the dead [again here on the earth]?

Job 19
25 For I know that my redeemer lives, and that he shall stand [quwm – rise in the resurrection] at the latter day [‘acharown] upon the earth [‘aphar – the dust, the ground from where man is generated again]:
26 And though after [‘achar] my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my [new] flesh shall I see God:
27 Whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed [kalah] within me.
28 But you should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root [sheresh – the deep meaning] of the matter [dabar – of His word] is found [matsa’] in me [to whom it appertains]? [Isaiah 65:1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I Am found {matsa’} of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.]
29 Be you afraid of the sword [this word of God you despisers of His good refuse]: for wrath brings the punishments of the sword, that you may know there is a judgment.

1 Corinthians 15
13 But if there be no resurrection [anastasis] of the dead [in the flesh], then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection [anastasis] of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming [parousia].
24 Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all [corrupt] rule and all [corrupt] authority and [corrupt] power.
25 For he must reign, till he has put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he has put all things under his feet. But when he says all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead [into Christ’s death, from where we are resurrected]?

42 So also is the resurrection [anastasis] of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural [flesh] body, and there is a spiritual [flesh] body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [the first fruit of the new creation] was made a quickening spirit [I Am, with His rising from the dead in me, He will bring many to life].
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man [natural Adam] is of the earth, earthy; the second man [Spiritual Adam] is the LORD from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image [eikon – likeness that marks us as possessed by Him] of the earthy, we shall also bear the image [eikon] of the heavenly.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that [those bearing the mark of the beast, without the LORD’s Spirit] flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption [that marks the flesh as without the LORD’s Spirit possessing it] inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep [as dead flesh], but we shall all be changed [allasso by His understanding as it unfolds, removing all corruption],
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye [enlightening the mind so we see Him as He is, with us, in us], at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound [the voice of His messenger, I Am, His archangel, shouting, calling, kaleo, all to join in His ONE LIVING BODY] and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed [into His ONE BODY, in the air cleared of corruption, cleared of the smoke that came from the bottomless pit, into heaven, full understanding with Him, purity by which we see God].
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [flesh] must put on [spiritual] immortality [which is the anastasis].
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?

Friends, the twenty three times used word eikon (“image”), meaning “a likeness, i.e. (literally) statue, profile, or (figuratively) representation, resemblance,” is used ten times by John in Revelation, all describing the “image” of the beast that all the world worships. The beast there is Babylon, confusion, which (with endless opinions replacing truth and understanding) corrupts all language (truthful discourse) and brings the world into its current state of insanity.

This state of insanity is what those who think they are enlightened refuse to admit affects them. Thinking they know everything, rejecting this word of God, they fail to realize they are also those sitting in God’s place holding His people down with opinions presented as truth and are potentially more dangerous than those more openly showing the mark (of confusion).

John only uses the word (eikon) in the abovementioned appearances in Revelation. The three other Gospels each use it once, all in the LORD’s telling of the “image” of Caesar (the powers that sever the world from God), which shows possession of the thing bearing it (the mark, the graven image).

Paul, in his other uses of the word eikon, tells us precisely its meaning.

Romans 1
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes [it is Him speaking and working to save them from themselves, from their own darkened minds]; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith [the one speaking who first believes it is Him] to faith [of the hearers who then believe it is His]: as it is written, The just shall live by faith [believing He is come to save them].
18 For the wrath of God is revealed [in the same word] from heaven [from where come this full understanding] against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness [saying this truth is corruption and their corruption opinions are truth];
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them [in their glory, the confused and now insane world their words have produced]; for God has showed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world [hidden here for this moment, behind the veil, these same men’s ignorance, in the flesh of God’s chosen, His eklektos] are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made [by assembling, rightly ordering, the elements of understanding that were separated until now], even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations [dialogismos – their dialog, their corrupt communication], and [forever debating] their foolish heart was darkened [became ignorant].
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory [the manifested presence] of the uncorruptible God into an image [eikon] made [they created] like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own [flesh] bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed [allasso – the change that needs to be changed] the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature [the creations of God] more than the Creator, who is blessed [with these treasures given to be given] forever. Amen.

Romans 8
26 Likewise [with these blessings] the Spirit also helps our infirmities [the maladies that make us weak]: for we [in the weakness of our ignorance] know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession [sunantilambanomai – only used twice, meaning He takes hold of us to oppose what has taken hold of us] for us with groanings [stenagmos – only used twice, meaning standing close because of our ignorance] which cannot be uttered [cannot be spoken – because all have become ignorant of them – the only other time the word stenagmos appears in Acts 7:34, where we are told it is what {our ignorance} the LORD heard from His people held in Egypt, {“and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you into Egypt {now against the image of the beast, against Babylon}. This Moses {now I Am, me, Timothy} whom they refused, saying, Who made you a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.”].
27 And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints [knowing they are also in need of this change] according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called [kletos] according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow [know before, the faithful throughout history], he also did predestinate [proorizo – to limit in advance, at this horizon] to be conformed to the image [eikon] of his Son, that he might be [as the first light on the horizon] the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate [proorizo], them he also called [kaleo]: and whom he called [kaleo], them he also justified [dikaioo – freed from corruption]: and whom he justified [freed from corruption], them he also glorified [manifesting His presence in them].
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect [eklektos – His chosen]? It is God that justifies [frees us from corruption and thereby death].
34 Who is he that condemns? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

2 Corinthians 3
12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13 And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished [the ignorance of the LORD among us in Moses’ flesh]:
14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remains the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament [not knowing it was written by those in whom the LORD chose to dwell, working and speaking through them]; which vail is done away in Christ [who declares it is the LORD, Jehovah, the Father in him doing the work, as now, here speaking and working in my, our, flesh].
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail [of ignorance, thinking it’s the work of men] is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn [away from the corrupt teaching of men] to the LORD, the vail [of ignorance] shall be taken away.
17 Now the LORD is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty [freedom from corruption].
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the LORD [in us], are changed [metamorphoo – the transfiguration of Christ, as in Matthew 17:2 and Mark 9:2] into the same image [eikon] from glory [His presence revealed in one flesh in which He works and speaks] to glory [in those receiving Him, who are transformed into the same image], even as by the Spirit of the LORD.

The only other time metamorphoo appears is in Romans 12:2.

Romans 12
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God [heard here at His mercy seat where His presence is manifested in this conversation], that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service [serving as I Am serving].
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed [metamorphoo] 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, 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.

2 Corinthians 4
1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light [understanding] of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image [eikon] of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the LORD; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light [understanding] of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face [presence] of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure [the gift of this understanding He has given to us] in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may [be known] be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the LORD Jesus, that the life [which is His light] also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life [light] also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death works in us [as we sacrifice, long-suffer, in His service], but life [understanding] in you.
13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed [it is His presence in my flesh], and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore [should] speak [which reveals Him alive in us];
14 Knowing that he which raised up the LORD Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace [this gift] might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

1 Samuel 25
1 And Samuel [shmuw’el – who heard God] died; and all the Israelites were gathered together, and lamented him, and buried him in his house at Ramah [In Jeremiah 31:15, this is where Rachel is heard lament her children, because they were not {no longer hearing the LORD}]. And David arose, and went down to the wilderness of Paran [where all things are clearly seen].
2 And there was a man in Maon [inhabiting the wilderness], whose possessions were in Carmel [the {promised} garden land]; and the man was very great, and he had three thousand sheep, and a thousand goats: and he was shearing his sheep in Carmel [God’s people who this man possesses in this promised land].
3 Now the name of the man was Nabal [from nabal – meaning “stupid; wicked (especially impious)”]; and the name of his wife Abigail [from abi {meaning the forefathers; and giyl, meaning “a revolution (of time, i.e. an age); also joy,” speaking of God’s people He frees from the stupid and wicked that now possess and shear them, who joy in knowing His presence with them, in them as One in this His new creation of heaven and earth]: and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance: but the man was churlish [dense – having an impenetrable mind] and evil in his doings; and he was of the house of Caleb [Judah, the current crop of corrupt leaders, as “dogs” ignorantly barking in the darkness].
4 And David heard in the wilderness that Nabal did shear his sheep.
5 And David sent out ten young men, and David said unto the young men, Get you up to Carmel, and go to Nabal, and greet him in my name:
6 And thus shall you say to him that lives in prosperity [ignorant of his condition], Peace be both to you, and peace be to your house, and peace be unto all that you have.
7 And now I have heard that you have shearers: now your shepherds which were with us, we hurt them not, neither was there ought missing unto them, all the while they were in Carmel [in this promised land among us].
8 Ask your young men, and they will show you. Wherefore let the young men find favor in your eyes: for we come in a good day [with these good tidings]: give, I pray you, whatsoever comes to your hand unto your servants, and to your son David [I Am, the beloved].
9 And when David’s young men came, they spoke to Nabal according to all those words [this word of God given as received] in the name of David [I Am], and ceased. [Speaking as the David spoke, in his last {‘acharown} words, speaking of these word in these last days, saying, in 2 Samuel 23:2, “The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me, and His word was {is} in my tongue.]
10 And Nabal answered David’s servants, and said, Who is David? and who is the son of Jesse [still existing – as the perpetual son]? there be many servants now a days that break away every man from his master [‘adown – king, of the confusion that now possesses and rules the world].
11 Shall I [being dense and unreasonable, not recognizing the LORD’s presence in His word spoken by His chosen] then take my bread, and my water, and my flesh that I have killed for my shearers, and give it unto men [who are all babblers as I ignorantly believe David is], whom I know not whence they be?
12 So David’s young men turned their way, and went again, and came and told him all those sayings.
13 And David said unto his men, Gird you on every man his sword [this word of God which they refuse]. And they girded [prepared] on every man his sword; and David also girded on his sword: and there went up after David about four hundred men; and two hundred abode by the stuff.
14 But one of the young men told Abigail, Nabal’s wife, saying, Behold, David sent messengers [mal’ak – the angels of the LORD’s presence] out of the wilderness to salute our master [‘adown – king]; and he railed [‘iyt – only used elsewhere in 1 Samuel 15:19, when Saul refused to do as the LORD commanded, and instead “did fly” upon the spoil of the enemy] on them.
15 But the men were very good unto us, and we were not hurt, neither missed we any thing, as long as we were conversant with them, when we were in the fields:
16 They were a wall [of protection] unto us both by night and day [giving their light into our darkness], all the while we were with them keeping the sheep.
17 Now therefore know and consider what you will do; for evil is determined against our master [‘adown – king], and against all his household: for he is such a son of Belial [the false god of this world, idols men created and put in God’s place], that a man cannot speak to him.
18 Then Abigail made haste, and took two hundred loaves, and two bottles of wine, and five sheep ready dressed, and five measures of parched corn, and a hundred clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, and laid them on asses.
19 And she said unto her servants, Go on before me; behold, I come after you. But she told not her husband Nabal.
20 And it was so, as she rode on the ass, that she came down by the covert [cether – secretly] on the hill, and, behold, David and his men came down against her; and she met them.
21 Now David had said, Surely in vain [with no effect on the wicked and unreasonable] have I kept all that this fellow has in the wilderness, so that nothing was missed of all that pertained unto him: and he has requited me evil for good.
22 So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light [this understanding sent and warning given] any that pisses [shathan – to make water, speak] against the wall [the protection the LORD gave while correcting the reasonable].
23 And when Abigail saw David, she hasted, and lighted off the ass, and fell before David on her face, and bowed herself to the ground,
24 And fell at his feet, and said, Upon me, my LORD [‘adown – king], upon me let this iniquity be: and let your handmaid, I pray you, speak in your audience, and hear the words of your handmaid.
25 Let not my LORD [‘adown – king] I pray you, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal: for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name [his identity], and folly [nbalah – meaning “foolishness, i.e. (morally) wickedness; concretely, a crime.”] is with him: but I your handmaid saw not the young men of my LORD [‘adown – king], whom you did send.
26 Now therefore, my LORD [‘adown – king], as the LORD [Jehovah] lives, and as your soul lives seeing the LORD [Jehovah] has withheld you from coming to shed blood, and from avenging yourself with your own hand, now let your enemies, and they that seek evil to my LORD [‘adown – king], be as Nabal.
27 And now this blessing which your handmaid has brought unto my LORD [‘adown – king], let it even be given unto the young men that follow my LORD [‘adown – king].
28 I pray you, forgive the trespass of your handmaid: for the LORD [Jehovah] will certainly make my LORD [‘adown – king] a sure house; because my LORD [‘adown – king] fights the battles of the LORD [Jehovah], and evil has not been found in you all your days.
29 Yet a man is risen to pursue you, and to seek your soul: but the soul of my LORD [‘adown – king] shall be bound in the bundle of life with the LORD [Jehovah] your God; and the souls of your enemies, them shall he sling out [qala’], as out of the middle of a sling [qela’].
30 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD [Jehovah] shall have done to my LORD [‘adown – king] according to all the good that he has spoken concerning you, and shall have appointed you ruler over Israel [His family He raises to now rule the earth];
31 That this shall be [hayah – I Am] no grief unto you, nor offense of heart unto my LORD [‘adown – king], either that you have shed blood causeless, or that my LORD [‘adown – king] has avenged himself: but when the LORD [Jehovah] shall have dealt well with my LORD [‘adown – king], then remember your handmaid.
32 And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the LORD [Jehovah] God of Israel, which sent you this day to meet me:
33 And blessed be your advice [ta’am – the understanding and judgment we have tasted and it is good], and blessed be you, which have kept me this day from coming to shed blood, and from avenging myself with my own hand.
34 For in very deed, as the LORD [Jehovah] God of Israel lives, which has kept me back from hurting you, except you had hasted and come to meet me, surely there had not been left unto Nabal by the morning light [this understanding now heard in her] any that pisseth [shathan – that make water, speaks] against the wall [this protect the LORD offers].
35 So David received of her hand that which she had brought him, and said unto her, Go up in peace to your house; see, I have hearkened to your voice, and have accepted your person.
36 And Abigail came to Nabal; and, behold, he held a feast in his house, like the feast of a king; and Nabal’s heart was merry within him, for he was very drunken: wherefore she told him nothing, less or more, until the morning light.
37 But it came to pass in the morning [when this understanding comes as the light of a new day], when the wine was gone out of Nabal [and His wicked mind understood the LORD’s presence and mercy were manifested toward him in the conversation with His messengers], and his wife had told him these things, that his heart [mind] died within him, and he became as a stone [had a stroke].
38 And it came to pass about ten days after, that the LORD smote Nabal, that he died.
39 And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, Blessed be the LORD [Jehovah], that has pleaded [riyb – defended] the cause [riyb – those wrestling with this word] of my reproach [cherpah – trying to disgrace me] from the hand of Nabal, and has kept his servant from evil: for the LORD has returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head. And David sent and communed with Abigail, to take her to him to wife.
40 And when the servants of David were come to Abigail to Carmel, they spoke unto her, saying, David sent us unto you, to take you to him to wife.
41 And she arose, and bowed herself on her face to the earth, and said, Behold, let your handmaid be a servant to wash the feet [removing all the corruption they picked up during their journey through time] of the servants of my LORD [‘adown – king].
42 And Abigail hasted, and arose and rode upon an ass, with five damsels [the five wise virgins whose lamp are filled] of hers that went after her; and she went after the messengers [mal’ak – the angels of the LORD] of David, and became his wife.
43 David also took Ahinoam [brethren who please the LORD] of Jezreel [whom He sowed into the new earth]; and they were also both of them his wives [joined with me into the ONE BODY of Christ, as ONE Flesh in which the LORD dwells].
44 But Saul [who the people desired to their king] had given Michal [who were once the likeness of God] his daughter, David’s wife, to Phalti [delivered them to] the son of Laish [the mouths of lions], which was of Gallim [to whom these living springs of water have come].

The only other time the name Gallim appears is in Isaiah 10:30.

Isaiah 10
15 Shall the axe [the communists I sent to hew down the falsely so-called “upright” trees in power] boast itself against him [the LORD] that hews therewith? or shall the saw [who cuts these men into pieces I can use to rebuild] magnify itself against him that shakes it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no [dead] wood [to be used by me for My purposes].
16 Therefore shall the LORD, the LORD of hosts [a man of war], send among his fat ones [who before prospered under His rule] leanness; and under his glory [manifesting His presence] he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.
17 And the light [understanding] of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns [misleaders] and his briers [deceivers] in one day [when this understanding covers the earth];
18 And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standard-bearer [showing the way] faints [macac – melts away as described in Zechariah 14:12 and 2 Peter 3:10 & 12 when the stoicheion, the corrupt “elements,” melt away in the fires these men’s words and ways have caused.].
19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.
20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the [elect] remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped [pleytah] of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay [sha’an – rely] upon him that smote [nakah – who with lies and misleading made them blind and dumb] them; but shall stay [sha’an – rely] upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
22 For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption [killayown – only used one other time: Deuteronomy 28:65, where it’s rendered “failing” of eyes; as in what these men say they’ve seen, as in Zachariah 14:12 – see the post of 12 November 2023] decreed [charats – this the end of the war desolation, when the full body of this anointing is poured out {Daniel 9:26 & 27}, when the LORD indignation is accomplished {Daniel 11:36}, the consumption upon the whole earth {Isaiah 28:22}, and in Job 14:5 saying “Seeing his {man’s} days are determined {charats}, the number of his months are with you {LORD}, you have appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;”] shall overflow with righteousness.
23 For the LORD God of hosts shall make a consumption [kalah], even determined [charats], in the midst of all the land.
24 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, O my people that dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian [the communists in power]: he shall smite [nakah] you with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt [oppressors who held you in hard bondage].
25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation [za’am] shall cease [kalah], and my anger in their destruction.
26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb [those whose power is to cover the world in darkness, causing endless strife among God’s people]: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt [these words shall cover, giving understanding to all, and overthrow the wicked in power].
27 And it shall come to pass in that day [when this light of the LORD has come], that his [the wicked’s] burden [the ignorance and mass confusion they’ve caused] shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke [joining you with them by consent] from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of [paniym – manifesting the LORD’s presence by] the anointing [of the king].
28 He is come to Aiath [Ai – the heap of ruin], he is passed to Migron [the precipice]; at Michmash [where they have hidden] he has laid up his carriages:
29 They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba [in their high place]; Ramah [and the high place] is afraid; Gibeah [where the consequences come – as in Judges 19] of Saul is fled.
30 Lift up your voice, O daughter of Gallim [who they’ve divided and scattered, to whom these waters now come]: cause it to be heard unto Laish [the lion – their strength, as Ariel, where judgment is perverted], O poor Anathoth [your prayers have been answered].
31 Madmenah [the dung hill, the burning trash heap, their hell] is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim [the keepers of the idols, their corrupt words] gather themselves to flee.
32 As yet shall he remain at Nob [his fruit and his high places] that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
33 Behold, the LORD [‘adown – the King of God’s people], the LORD [Jehovah] of hosts [who is manifested in His man of war], shall lop [cut off] the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled.
34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon [their false standard of purity in high places] shall fall by a mighty one.

Jeremiah 51
41 How is Sheshach [Babylon; against which the trumpet sounds calling all God’s people against her confusion] taken [in their own ignorance of the time of their visitation]![?] and how is the praise of the whole earth surprised![?] how is Babylon become an astonishment among the nations [those who haven’t known the forever present LORD]![?]
42 [the answer is] The sea [God’s people: humanity awakened to this time] is come up [risen] upon Babylon [against the confusion that now rules the world]: she is covered with the multitude of the waves [of those rising] thereof.
43 Her cities are a desolation [as they are], a dry land [without this word of God in her misleaders and deceivers], and a wilderness [without life], a land [‘erets – the earth] wherein no man dwells [yashab – remains], neither does any son of man pass [‘abar] thereby [none among her Passover from death into life].
44 And I will punish [paqad – visit as the Chief Overseer of the earth] Bel [their kings as idols, wicked, men who think themselves gods] in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth [those they possessed by the words] that which he has swallowed up [into the belly of hell]: and the nations [the sea of those who haven’t known My presence] shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall [of protection, the lies and deception with which they control those they made ignorant] of Babylon shall fall.
45 My people, go you out of the midst of her, and deliver you every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD.
46 And lest your heart [minds] faint, and you fear for the rumor [shmuw’ah – {shama’ Yahh} this voice of Jehovah, His report, obeyed by those hearing Him, knowing it is His presence with us in us] that shall be heard [shama’ – and obeyed] in the land [‘erets – the earth]; a rumor [shmuw’ah – His long-suffering voice, heard and obeyed by One, His first begotten, I Am] shall both come one year, and after that in another year shall come a rumor [shmuw’ah – His voice heard by the elect and obeyed], and [against the] violence [chamac – ill-gotten gain and injustice perpetrated by the wicked in power] in the land [‘ erets – in the earth], ruler [mashal] against ruler [mashal].
47 Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will do judgment [paqad – visit as the Chief Overseer of the earth] upon the graven images [these rulers as idols they worship and follow] of Babylon: and her whole land [‘erets – her old and now totally corrupt earth] shall be confounded [be disappointed and shamed when the end they sought isn’t reached], and all her slain [by follow her confusion now turned mass insanity] shall fall in the midst of her.
48 Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for [repeating these words with me, as received from the voice of the LORD’s presence with us, in us, against the confusion wrought by] Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north [out of darkness, out of confusion they departed, into the light], says the LORD.
49 As Babylon has caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth [‘erets].
50 You that have [by receiving this word as His] escaped [paliyt] the sword, go away, stand not still: remember [zakar] the LORD afar off [rachowq – this time when the earth is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men who think themselves gods], and let [New Heavenly] Jerusalem come into your mind [into which My ways of sustainable peace have flowed].
51 We [God’s people to whom the LORD has come unknown as a thief in the night] are confounded, because we have heard [shama’ – obeyed] reproach [cherpah – men who’ve tried to disgrace me]: shame has covered our faces: for strangers [those who haven’t know the LORD or His way] are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD’s house.
52 Wherefore, behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will do judgment [paqad – come as I have, unknown as the Paraclete, the Chief Overseer of the earth] upon her [the men in My house who’ve warred against me] graven images [the idols they worship]: and through all her land the wounded shall groan.
53 Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, says the LORD.
54 A sound of a cry comes from Babylon, and great destruction from the land [‘erets – the earth] of the Chaldeans:
55 Because the LORD has spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice [of the deceivers and misleaders of the earth]; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered:
56 Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows [with which they fire the lies and false accusation] is broken: for the LORD God of recompense shall surely requite.
57 And I will make drunk [make their minds not to work as designed, by their own ignorance and insanity] her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, says the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts [I Am, a man of war].
58 Thus says the LORD of hosts; The broad walls [of lies and deception, which they think is their protection] of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labor in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary [and sleep in hell, forever held there by their own incorrigible minds].
59 The word which Jeremiah [Jehovah rising] the prophet commanded Seraiah [Yahh has prevailed] the son of Neriah [by the light of Yahh], the son of Maaseiah [and he is the refuge Yahh has given us], when he went with Zedekiah [the righteousness of Yahh] the king of Judah [ruling through those who rule with Him as He dwells in us] into Babylon [here among the wicked who remain asleep in the hell they’ve created and choose] the fourth year of his reign. And this Seraiah [through whom Yahh prevailed] was [is] a quiet [mnuchah – peaceful, what rest? the rest we have waited for] prince [I Am, in Shiloh].

Isaiah 37
22 This is the word which the LORD has spoken concerning him [the communists]; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, has despised you, and laughed you to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you.
23 Whom have you reproached and blasphemed? and against whom have you exalted your voice, and lifted up your eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.
24 By your servants have you reproached the LORD, and have said, “By the multitude of my chariots [that carry the words and ways of confusion into the battle] am I come up to the height of the mountains [power over all the world], to the sides of Lebanon [where purity was once seen on high]; and I will cut down the tall cedars [the upright men] thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I [as a serpent] will enter into the height of his border [qets – their foretold end], and the forest of his Carmel [the LORD’s garden of Eden].
25 I have digged, and drunk water [understanding dark sayings]; and with the sole of my feet [traveling among them] have I dried up [censored] all the rivers of the besieged places.”
26 Have you not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that you shouldest be to lay waste defensed cities into ruinous heaps.
27 Therefore, their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
28 But I [the LORD] know your abode, and your going out, and your coming in, and your rage against me.
29 Because your rage against me, and your tumult, is come up into my ears, therefore will I put my hook in your nose, and my bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way by which you came.
30 And this shall be a sign unto you, You shall eat this year [of the shmuw’ah] such as grows of itself [the result of the confusion you have sown]; and the second year [of the shmuw’ah] that which springs of the same: and in the third year sow you, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof [which is now ripe, seen to be what it is, and now readied for My harvest].
31 And the remnant that is escaped [pleytah] of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:
32 For out of [New Heavenly] Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape [pleytah] out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.
33 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the king of Assyria [the communists now in power], He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.
34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, says the LORD.
35 For I will defend this city to save it for my own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.
36 Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote [nakah] in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning [when this light has come], behold [I saw], they were all dead corpses [animated flesh awakened to everlasting contempt].

Psalms 2
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain [worthless] thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands [of obedience] asunder, and cast away their cords [The LORD’s commandments] from us.
4 He that sits [enthroned] in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision [as they are this day, trapped in their own evil].
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath [as He does here and now], and vex them in his sore displeasure [in their misleading].
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the LORD has said unto me [me Timothy D’Annunzio], You are my Son; this day have I begotten you.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen [the world ignorant of My presence] for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron [the law of nature and nature’s God, under which government men are entitled to live]; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel [destroying the old fully corrupt institutions men have defiled and starting it over again New, removing all the corruption].
10 Be wise now, therefore, O you kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice [giyl] with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Friends, again, I understand the difficulty of believing something of this magnitude is occurring. I (again) tell you the truth, it is – and no power can stop Him. When faith comes that this day of enlightenment is upon us and the faithful witness to His presence giving us understanding, the earth will suddenly, in an instant, be changed.

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: we found it in the fields of the wood.
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.
