Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof.

28 – 29 May 2024

Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof.

The (seventeen times used) Hebrew word ‘avah (5753), rendered “turns” above in Isaiah 24:1, (as seen in a previous post) 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.” The Interlinear Bible translates this word (in this passage) as “distorts.”

The words “upside down” are from the word paniym, which expressly speaks of the LORD’s presence, which (distortion) causes the earth’s emptiness, and makes it a waste. The word rendered “scatters abroad,” speaking of the earth’s inhabitance, is puwts, meaning “to dash in pieces, literally or figuratively (especially to disperse).”

This latter word (puwts) tells of when the LORD parts the light and how His Holy Spirit works (is “scattered”) upon all the earth, as in Job 38:24 as He, from the whirlwind, asks man to answer a few enlightening questions.

Job 38 [from the previous post]
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 dwells [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 [[puwts]] 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].

The title verse begins a chapter in which the LORD is (NOW) giving the reason for His rejecting the current crop of corrupt leaders (who refuse His word and His command to announce His presence while speaking according to this word). The new crop is those scattered across the earth who have received Him, His presence in His word through His chosen, who obey Him and give it as received.

(Suffer me for a moment while I must again digress. The LORD through me has once before changed the world, as His way (to me and others) of emphasizing His power to do so through a nobody in obscurity. So, based on several dreams, I designed, patented, and produced what has become the basis of all military (and civilian Law enforcement) personal tactical Armor and load-bearing equipment. It was first fielded here by a small elite group (think of them like the elect remnant, like Gideon’s 300). Shortly after that (in 2001), the war broke out, and this same unit deployed in mass, working with all the other (special and traditional) US and Allied forces. Their gear was immediately recognized as far superior to anything else fielded, and from that point, it became the most desired and copied design in the world (even stolen, patents infringed, by the U.S. government, fielded to all units, and used to this day – Matthew 27:35). Those who have eyes that see and ears that hear will understand the relevance in me telling this story. We can do this! Just follow the plan! Obey the LORD’s commands!)

Isaiah 24
1 Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty [baqaq], and makes it waste [balaq], and turns [‘avah] it upside down [paniym – and His presence is thereby distorted], and scatters [puwts] abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2 And it [this distortion] shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.
3 The land [‘erets – the earth] shall be utterly emptied [baqaq], and utterly spoiled [bazaz]: for the LORD has spoken this word [and the vexation is to understand it is Him present speaking].
4 The [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] mourns and fades away, the world languishes [‘amal – become weak and feeble] and fades away, the haughty [the proud who are unwilling to be corrected] people of the earth [‘erets] do languish [‘amal – become weak and feeble].
5 The [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws [towrah], changed the ordinance [choq – righteous decrees], broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore [as warned] has the curse [‘alah – their unrighteous decrees] devoured [and swallowed into the belly of hell] the earth [‘erets], and they that dwell therein are desolate [by their abominations they created and put in My place]: therefore the inhabitants of the [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] are burned [in the fire of hell], and few men left [alive with understanding].
7 The new wine mourns [because this word is refused], the vine [from where they receive their teaching] languishes [‘amal – become weak and feeble], all the merry-hearted do sigh.
8 The mirth of tabrets ceases, the noise of them [those who before realized the LORD’s presence with them] that rejoice end, the joy of the harp [repeating these songs as received] ceases.
9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter [marah] to them that drink it.
10 The city [Babylon] of confusion [tohuw – without form] is broken down: every house is shut up [cagar – surrendered to the confusion and insanity of the day], that no man may come in [into understanding].
11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened [all realization of the LORD’s presence is ended by ignorance], the mirth of the land [‘erets – the earth] is gone.
12 In the city [Jerusalem become Babylon] is left desolation, and the gate [keeping confusion out] is smitten with destruction.
13 When thus it shall be [as it now is] in the midst of the land [‘erets – the earth] among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. [Now when there are very few, a very small elect remnant, that haven’t been harvested by the confusion and ignorance that rules the day]
14 They [the elect remnant] shall lift up their voice [qowl], they shall sing [these words they have been given] for the majesty of [ga’own – exalting] the LORD [His words above the words of the proud who corrupted and deluded the earth], they shall cry aloud from the sea [among humanity at large, where they have been strategically scattered].
15 Wherefore glorify you [with His words, manifesting the presence of] the LORD in the fires [which have no effect on us], even the name [identity] of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea [the places where His word isn’t heard].
16 From the uttermost part [kanaph – the sound of the wings of the cherubim, the message from the same in the wheel within the wheel] of the earth have we heard [these] songs, even glory to the righteous [who’ve received the LORD and His righteousness]. But I said, My leanness [raziy], my leanness [raziy – only used here, telling of the very few who know and receive the LORD], woe unto me! the treacherous dealers [bagad] have dealt treacherously [bagad]; yea, the treacherous dealers [bagad] have dealt very treacherously [bagad – speaking of those distributing their own words and refusing to distribute this word of the LORD; referring to its four uses in Isaiah 33:1 and once in Isaiah 48:8].
17 Fear [this], and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth [‘erets]. [Luke 21: 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.]
18 And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise [qowl – from the voice of the LORD] of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the [corrupt] foundations of the earth [‘erets] do shake [that wickedness is shaken from them].
19 The [old and corrupt] earth [‘ erets] is utterly broken down, the [old andcorrupt] earth [‘erets] is clean dissolved, the [old and corrupt] earth [‘erets] is moved exceedingly.
20 The earth [‘erets] shall reel to and fro like a drunkard [see Luke 21:34 below, which comes as a snare upon all the earth, as it is this day], and shall be removed [nuwd] like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it [the old and corrupt earth] shall fall, and not rise again. [Jeremiah 50:8 Remove {nuwd} out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans {whose word have manipulated and controlled the world into death and hell}, and be as the he goats before {paniym – as the LORD’s presence rightly leading} the flocks {out of confusion, death, and hell}.]
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth] the host [the army of darkness] of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth [‘adamah – those ruling his people] upon the earth [‘adamah – in the new generation He is raising to life from the dead].
22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited [paqad – now when He appears again to our sight as the Chief Overseer of the earth].
23 Then the moon [all the corrupt civil governments of the earth] shall be confounded, and the sun [the corrupt church government] ashamed [seen to have taught lies and falsehood], when the LORD of hosts [a man of war] shall reign [as the head of His new government on the earth] in mount Zion, and in [New Heavenly] Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

Luke 21
24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive [scattered] into all nations: and [old and corrupt] Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles [those who haven’t known the LORD], until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled [and none are left with understanding].
25 And there shall be signs in the sun [the darkened church], and in the moon [civil governments not reflecting the light of the sun, because there isn’t any], and in the stars [God’s fallen people without understanding]; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring [the opinions of ignorant humanity, unable to be corrected because of their pride in what they think they know];
26 Men’s hearts [minds] failing them for fear, and for looking [but not seeing, because they are looking for what their false prophets have told] after those things [after the working of Satan, with all signs and lying wonders] which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven [where understanding should be found but isn’t] shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see [when] the Son of man coming in a cloud [with full understanding by which they see him] with power [to enlighten ignorant minds] and great glory [of the Father’s presence manifested thereby].
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh.
29 And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
30 When they now shoot forth [new life], you see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
31 So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, know you that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
32 Truly I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
33 [The old and corrupt] Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts [minds] be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on ALL them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch you therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. [1 Thessalonians 3:8 For now we live, if you stand fast in the LORD.]
37 And in the day time [when life has come] he was teaching in the temple; and at night [when the ignorant are present in power] he went out [from among their confusion and delusions], and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
38 And all the people [at large] came early in the morning [this new day] to him in the temple [the flesh wherein He dwells], for to hear him.

Isaiah 33
1 Woe to you that spoil, and you were not spoiled; and deal treacherously[bagad], and they dealt not treacherously [bagad] with you! when you shall cease to spoil, you shall be spoiled; and when you shall make an end to deal treacherously [bagad], they shall deal treacherously [bagad] with you.
2 O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for [qavah – expected] you: be you their arm every morning, our salvation [yshuw’ah – Joshua: our Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh of His declared perpetual son] also in the time of trouble [tsarah – this tribulation].
3 At the noise [qowl- the voice of Jehovah] of the tumult [hamown – the shout of His multitude] the people fled; at the lifting up [romemuth – only used here, meaning exaltation; the voice of the LORD raised above all others] of yourself the nations were scattered.
4 And your spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar [until nothing, no part of the corrupt’s evil message, is left]: as the running to and fro [seeking the knowledge of the LORD] of locusts shall he run upon them [until none are left untouched by His understanding, wisdom, and knowledge that should be given as received].
5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he has filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.
6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability [’emuwn – faithfulness and truth of His office as the Chief Overseer of the earth] of your times, and strength of salvation [yshuw’ah]: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.
7 Behold, their valiant ones [‘er’el – the same as Ariel, the Lion of God, from whom He roars] shall cry without: the ambassadors [mal’ak – His angels He sends with His message, to be delivered as receives] of peace shall weep bitterly [because the LORD’s people refuse His Salvation message].
8 The highways [to return to the LORD] lie waste, the wayfaring man [‘abar – those passing over from death into life] ceases: he [those who’ve wandered away from the LORD] has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he regards [chashab – refuse to consider] no man.
9 The earth mourns and languishes: Lebanon [purity in high place] is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon [plainly seeing things as they are] is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel [fruitful garden] shake off their fruits.
10 Now will I rise, says the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself. [AMEN!]
11 You shall conceive chaff, you shall bring forth stubble: your breath [your own words you speak], as fire, shall devour you.
12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime [siyd – fire against the scattered bones, tribulation in which the dead body of Christ is purified and raised]: as thorns [misleader that overgrew the garden] cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
13 Hear [shama’ – hear My voice and obey My good leading], you that are far off [rachowq – here in this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men in power], what I have done; and, you that are near [qarowb – who’ve joined with Me], acknowledge [yada’ – because you have seen and know Me] my might [gbuwrah – My strength as a warrior, giving understand that changes men’s minds].
14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings [the bush that burns but never burns out]?
15 He that walks righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that shakes his hands from holding of bribes [We see you Brandon, doing the bidding of your pay masters], that stop his ears from hearing [shama’ – not obeying the commands that are malicious and evil] of blood, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil [not leading people into evil];
16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks [from which this word of God flows]: bread [this rightly divided dispensation] shall be given him; his [the dispenser’s living] waters shall be sure.
17 Your eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off [merchaq – this appointed time the LORD promised and decreed].
18 Your heart shall meditate terror [‘eymah – murmur against and mediate about the fear of the LORD; referring us Proverbs 20:2, saying “The fear {‘eymah} of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provokes him to anger {‘abar – to rise from silence into flesh} sins against his own soul.]. Where is the scribe [caphar – who say they understand the law: My written word]? where is the receiver [shaqal – to who I sent My word, which meaning I suspend for Myself until this time of war]? where is he that counted the towers [caphar migdal – where is the One who wrote these things to be sent into this future only He knew and knows]?
19 You [being blind] shall not see a fierce people [I embolden], a people of a deeper [‘ameq – only appearing here and Ezekiel 3:5 & 6, where it is rendered “strange”] speech than you can perceive [shama’ – not able to hear it as Jehovah speaking, and therefor not willing to follow His good advice]; of a stammering tongue [a language, truth, you don’t understand, because all you have been taught is corruptions and lies], that you can not understand [biynah – the understanding is directly from Jehovah, only used in the Prophets as follows: Isaiah 11:2, 27:11, 29:14 & 24, here, Jeremiah 23:20, Daniel 1:20, 8:15, 9:22 & 10:1, all defining this understanding coming from the Angel {mal’ak – messenger} of the LORD’s presence, who appears as the “son of man”].
20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: your eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle [His people in which He dwells] that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.
21 But there the glorious LORD will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams [this word flowing into the sea: humanity at large: this last generation that is the first of the new creation]; wherein shall go no galley with oars [the now totally corrupt institution of government, church and state, powered by men], neither shall gallant [‘addiyr – having power to rule over man] ship pass thereby [‘abar – they shall not pass over from death into life with this new generations].
22 For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.
23 Your tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail [all the things by which these institutions held man down, are no longer able to hold them down, because they are taken out of our midst, no longer controlling our minds]: then [as in verse 1] is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame [those who strayed from the highway and returned to it] take the prey.
24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Isaiah 48
1 Hear [shama’ – obey] you this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah [this word I’ve sent to My elect remnant], which swear by the name of the LORD, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.
2 For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon the God of Israel; The LORD of hosts is his name.
3 I have declared the former things from the beginning [of the creation of this new heaven and earth]; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I showed them; I did them suddenly [pith’owm], and they came to pass.
4 Because I knew that you are obstinate, and your neck [wherein my words are held but not yet spoken] is an iron sinew, and your brow brass [you are hard headed against My harder head];
5 I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I showed it you: lest you shouldest say, My idol has done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, has commanded them.
6 You have heard, see all this; and will not you declare it [as I’ve commanded]? I have shown you new things [chadash] from this time, even hidden things, and you did not know them.
7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when you heard them not; lest you shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.
8 Yea, you heard [shama’ – obeyed] not; yea, you knew not; yea, from that time that your ear was not opened: for I knew that you would deal very treacherously [bagad], and were called a transgressor from the womb.
9 For my name’s sake will I defer my anger, and for my praise will I refrain for you, that I cut you not off.
10 Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.
11 For my own sake, even for my own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.
12 Hearken [shama’ – obey] unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.
13 My hand also has laid the foundation of the [new] earth, and my right hand has spanned the [new] heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.
14 All you, assemble yourselves [into My ONE BODY], and hear [shama’ – obey]; which among them [except My anointed] has declared these things? The LORD has loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon [the confusion that rules the world], and his arm [this work] shall be on the Chaldeans [against those I’ve hated].
15 I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.
16 Come you near unto me, hear [shama’ – obey] you this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the LORD God, and his Spirit, has sent me.
17 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD your God which teaches you to profit, which leads you by the way that you shouldest go.
18 O that you had hearkened [qashab – let these words pierce your ear and enter your minds] to my commandments! then had your peace been as a river, and your righteousness as the waves of the sea:
19 Your seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of your bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me [paniym – left my presence].
20 Go you forth of Babylon, flee you from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare you [as I have commanded], tell this, utter it even to the end of the [old and corrupt] earth; say you, The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob.
21 And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the Rock for them: he clave the Rock also, and the waters [this word] gushed out.
22 There is no peace, says the LORD, unto the wicked.

Friends, it’s time for the elect remnant to open their mouths and declare the LORD present with us in His word. It must be heard but it isn’t because no one truly believes He has risen in me, in anyone, here or anywhere. No matter how many words He speaks, it’s never enough. The world, God’s people, sit still with closed mouths, waiting for some greater evil to descend upon them before they will believe.

There is no sign but this sign: sending me, like Jonah risen from the belly of hell, to call all the word to repentance, to leave behind the corruption that blinded all from seeing and hearing Him.

Isaiah 8
13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself [declare holy His presence in His man of war]; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
14 And he shall be for a sanctuary [He is our place of safety]; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem [His rebellious people who choose to remain in corruption].
15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
16 Bind up [tsarar] the testimony [accept the affliction, the birth pains, that comes with accepting His word as His], seal [chatham – the LORD referring us to its use in Song of Solomon {SOS} 4:12] the law among my disciples. [Speaking to His disciples, SOS 4:12 saying “A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed {chatham}.”]
17 And I will wait upon the LORD [to be born again in the children He has given me], that hides his face [presence] from the [rebellious] 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 [My people of the promise, who by faith rise with My rising] from the LORD of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion [on His throne].
19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits [the voices of the known dead, speaking the ways of death], and unto wizards [the “experts” of this corrupt world] that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? [Should they be looking] for the living to the dead?
20 [Or should they be looking] To the law and to the testimony [these treasures?]: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light [understanding] in them.

FYI: the Song of Solomon is the LORD speaking (in cryptic pattern) of me (the beloved, as David) and the children (my sister, my spouse) He has given me, as His ONE BODY He awakens.

Song of Solomon 4
3 Your lips [your open mouths] are like a thread of scarlet [referring to Joshua 2:18, marking the house wherein all who enter are spared from the destruction to come], and your speech is comely: your temples are like a piece of a pomegranate within your locks.
4 Your neck is like the tower of David built for an armory [where these treasures are kept before they are revealed from your mouth], whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of [the faith of] mighty men.
5 Your two breasts [from where you nourish your children who seek safety in the LORD’s house] are like two young roes that are twins [ta’own – see Song of Solomon 7:3 below], which feed among the lilies [who hear and repeat His words as trumpets sounding this last trump].
6 Until the day break [and the light, this understanding, comes with the new day], and the shadows [ignorance of those blocking this light] flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense [God’s perfected government, entering His house which we, while not yet seeing it, perceive is present].
7 You are all fair, my love; there is no spot [no stain of corruption] in you.
8 Come with me from Lebanon [this place where purity is exalted on high], my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top [where He has raised you] of Amana [faithfulness and truth, with which the LORD has helped us], from the top of Shenir [His purity exalted in His perfected Government here on the earth] and Hermon [into this place of safety], from the lions’ dens [from where His voice roared as a Lion], [freeing us] from the mountains of the leopards [the government institutions, of church and state, who are stained, spotted, by corruption].
9 You have ravished my heart [labab – you have put on My mind], my sister, my spouse; you have ravished my heart [labab – you have put on My mind] with one of your eyes [by Your eyes made one with MY eyes, seeing as I see], with one chain of your neck [binding you with Me by the word now waiting in your throat to be spoken].
10 How fair is your love [your charity, as Mine, giving these treasures as I’ve given them to you], my sister, my spouse! how much better [at changing the minds of men] is your love [My words in your mouths] than wine! and the smell [perceiving they are] of your ointments [shemem – My anointing], than all spices [better than all other perceptions]!
11 Your lips [Your mouths opened speaking My words], O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb [nopheth – the LORD’s judgment, as in Psalms 19:10]: honey and milk are under your tongue [your words choosing My good leading and refusing the evil]; and the smell of your garments [My righteousness perceived present therein] is like the smell of Lebanon [perceiving they are purity from the Highest].
12 A garden enclosed [na’al – wherein all My treasures are locked until this moment of opening] is my sister, my spouse; a spring [of living water] shut up [na’al – locked], a fountain sealed [chatham – the same word used telling of the book sealed until this end of days, this appointed time {mow’ed} of the congregation {mow’ed}].
13 Your plants [locked within you, the garden] are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant [maged] fruits; camphire [kopher – the price of a life: the ransom of redemption], with spikenard [fallowed ground],
14 Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:
15 A fountain of [life from My] gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon [purity from the Highest].
16 Awake, O north wind [upon those sleeping in ignorance]; and come, you south [those who’ve seen My rising in My work]; blow [My Almighty Spirit] upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out [that they speak these treasures they have perceived]. Let my beloved [I Am] come into his garden [to join the children the LORD has given me], and eat his pleasant [meged] fruits.

The word meged, meaning “to be eminent; properly, a distinguished thing; hence something valuable, as a product or fruit,” only appears one other time in the Song of Solomon, and five times in Deuteronomy 33. It speaks of this fruit (this word) that is the entry, the gate, into the LORD’s kingdom.

Deuteronomy 33
13 And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land [‘erets – the earth], for the precious [meged] things of heaven [this full understanding], for the dew [the LORD’s word that now appears on the earth], and for the deep [understanding] that couches beneath [the surface of His word],
14 And for the precious [maged] fruits brought forth by the sun [this understanding returned to the LORD’s ONE BODY, the risen Church], and for the precious things [meged] put forth by the moon [His perfected government established here on the earth],
15 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains [governments of church and state as intended, to secure men’s God-given rights, among them life, liberty, and property], and for the precious things [maged] of the lasting hills [sustainable civilization by self, personal, government],
16 And for the precious things [meged] of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush [on fire while never burning out]: let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.
17 His glory is like the firstling of his bullock [the first begotten for doing this work of the LORD], and his horns [right to rule] are like the horns of unicorns [is the only just rule]: with them [the children the LORD has given me] he shall push [nagach – wage war against the enemies] the people together [yachad – uniting God’s people into ONE BODY] to the ends [ending the old beginning the new] of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim [the children of Joseph, the elect remnant, God’s people in this last generation of the old earth, who are the first begotten of the new], and they are the thousands of Manasseh [those who forgot God, who now remember, re-cognize, Him].

Proverbs 25
11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament [chaliy – only appearing here and in Song of Solomon 7:1] of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient [shama’] ear [pierced by wise words fitly spoken, which enter the mind and are heard from the mouth of faithful messengers].
13 As the cold of snow [this word reserved in heaven] in the time of harvest [this time of judgment], so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refreshes the soul of his masters.

Song of Solomon 7
1 How beautiful are your feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! the joints of your thighs are like jewels [chaliy – as the obedient joined with a wise reprover], the work of the hands of a cunning workman [‘aman – meaning “an expert,” a trainer, a master-builder].
2 Your navel is like a round goblet, which wants [chacer – lacks] not liquor: your belly [this hell we are in] is like an heap of wheat set [God’s protected people] about with lilies [who hear His voice as the last trumpet sounding].
3 Your two breasts are like two young roes that are twins. [ta’own – other than here and above, only use twice, in Genesis 25:25 & 38:27, the first speaking of Jacob and Esau, the other of Tamar’s children Pharez (breach) and Zarah (rising) whose hand came out of the womb {beten – belly, like hell, were the living unborn wait to be born again: raised} and a scarlet thread was tied around his hand {work} before he pulled it back and his brother was born first. As we know, Tamar {palm tree} and her two children are mentioned in Matthew’s recording of Jesus’ blood line {generation}, which he records {Matthew 1:3} continuing through Pharez. The LORD’s blood line continues in Zarah, in His resurrection, referred to in the only use of the word zerach {meaning “a rising of light”}, from where the name comes. Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen {zarach – from zerach} upon you. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise {zarach} upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising {zerach}.]
4 Your neck is as a tower of ivory [words waiting to be spoken were seen coming and are in your mouth as teeth with which you devour dead flesh]; your eyes like the fish-pools in Heshbon [the things you’ve seen, life below these written words’ surface, are your stronghold], by the gate of Bathrabbim [the way out of hell into heaven for the multitude of scattered churches]: your nose is as the tower of Lebanon [perceiving these things as purity from the Highest] which looks toward Damascus [is sight for those who remain drunken with pride and therefore silent in sorrow].
5 Your head [leadership] upon you is like Carmel [is a nation of gardens], and the hair of your head [this understanding that has enlarged your mind] like purple [of a virtuous woman: church]; the king is held in the galleries [the king is there joined with you in this watering].
6 How fair and how pleasant are you, O love, for delights!
7 This your stature [gowmah – highness] is like to a palm tree [tamar], and your breasts [your nourishing your children] to clusters of grapes.
8 I said, I will go up to the palm tree [tamar], I will take hold of the boughs thereof: now also your breasts shall be as clusters of the vine, and the smell of your nose [you deep perception] like apples [the fruit of a good tree];
9 And the roof of your mouth [speaking this word] like the best wine for my beloved, that goes down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
10 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me [I and the children the LORD has given me].
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field [the earth wherein the LORD has planted us]; let us lodge in the villages.
12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth [as in Luke 21:29, when we see the fig tree and all the trees, bring forth new life, you know the kingdom of God is at hand]: there will I give you my loves.
13 The mandrakes [duwday – the baskets of fruit] give a smell [by which we perceive its presence], and at our gates [this word of God] are all manner of pleasant [meged] fruits, new and old, which I have laid up [tsaphan – as treasure reserved for this moment] for you, O my beloved [dowd – David, I Am].

Jeremiah 24
1 The LORD showed me, and, behold, two baskets [duwday] of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon [the lies of false prophets and false teachers that carried all into the desolation and confusion that now rules the world] had carried away captive Jeconiah [who Jehovah will establish] the son of Jehoiakim [who Jehovah raises up] king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon [to this world ruled by confusion and delusion].
2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are [now] first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty [ra’ – evil] figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad [roa’].
3 Then said the LORD unto me, What see you, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil [ra’], very evil [ra’], that cannot be eaten, they are so evil [roa’].
4 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans [among those using the word to oppress and manipulate into evil] for their good.
6 For I will set my eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land [‘erets – the new earth]: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
7 And I will give them a heart [a mind] to know me, that I Am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart [mind].
8 And as the evil [ra’] figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil [roa’]; surely thus says the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah [those in whom Jehovah Righteousness should be manifested, but instead they are evil] the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land [‘erets – the old and corrupt earth], and them that dwell in the land [‘erets – the old earth] of Egypt [under the oppression of evil tyrants]:
9 And I will deliver them to be removed [za’avah – to be mistreated by their own perversion, their own evil judgment] into all the kingdoms of the earth [‘erets] for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
10 And I will send the sword [this word of God they refuse], the famine [with this word of God], and the pestilence [the dis-ease that comes with My Spirit], among them, till they be consumed [tamam – in the completion of this new creation] from off the land [‘adamah – from this new generation upon the earth] that I gave unto them and to their fathers.

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 [d’agah];
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 [d’agah], 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.

Psalms 71
1 In you, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
2 Deliver me in your righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline your ear unto me, and save me.
3 Be you my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: you have given commandment to save me; for you are my Rock and my fortress.
4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
5 For you are my hope, O LORD God: you are my trust from my youth.
6 By you have I been holden up from the womb: you are he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of you.
7 I am as a wonder unto many; but you are my strong refuge [machaceh].
8 Let my mouth be filled with your praise and with your honor all the day.
9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength fails.
10 For my enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
11 Saying, God has forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonor that seek my hurt.
14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise you more and more.
15 My mouth shall show forth your righteousness and your salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
16 I will go in the strength of the LORD God: I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours only.
17 O God, you have taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared your wondrous works.
18 Now also when I Am old and grey-headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed your strength unto this generation, and your power to every one that is to come.
19 Your righteousness also, O God, is very high, who have done great things: O God, who is like unto you!
20 You, which have showed me great and sore troubles, shall quicken me again, and shall bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21 You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
22 I will also praise you with the psaltery, even your truth, O my God: unto you will I sing with the harp, O you Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto you; and my soul, which you have redeemed.
24 My tongue also shall talk of your righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
