What will you say when he shall punish you? for you have taught them to be captains, and as chief over you: shall not sorrows take you, as a woman in travail?

17 – 18 July 2024

What will you say when he shall punish you? for you have taught them to be captains, and as chief over you: shall not sorrows take you, as a woman in travail?

The word “punish,” above in Jeremiah 13:21, is paqad, meaning “to visit (with friendly or hostile intent); by analogy, to oversee, muster, charge, care for, miss, deposit, etc..” As often discussed, it speaks of the LORD openly manifesting His presence, in His word and work, as the Chief Overseer of the earth, declaring righteous decrees that combat the evil decrees (now) ruling the earth.

One such decree concerns current government institutions (of church and state), degenerated into the control of those antithetical to their Constitution. No longer are they controlled by (the consent of) the constituents who elect representatives to carry out their will, within the framework of the powers vested in their institutions by its Law. This will, as established in our Declaration, is that we are entitled to live under “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God (the Creator),” who has endowed us with unalienable Rights, among them Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, and to secure these unalienable Rights governments are instituted.

As we know, the “Bill of Rights,” the first ten amendments to the Constitution, state additional rights essential to “securing” ourselves against despots abusing government power. They specifically protect against demagogues that might rise and end as tyrants threatening our Lives and Liberty. They additionally state our Right to Pursue Happiness includes our right to acquire and keep secure our private property.

The current governments, riddled by millions of unelected self-servants, now led by devils (possessed by the spirit of Satan), abandoned, not only the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, but also, the Spirit in these Laws (securing our God-Given Rights, our neighbors’ and our own: reciprocal security, the way to peace and sustainable civilization), and now control, by evil decree and corrupt judgment, virtually every aspect of our existence.

The LORD has righteously decreed they will not continue.

2 Peter 3
9 The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness [ignorant of the fact He is always here with us]; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements [stoicheion – the rudiments of the world, the corruption and insanity now possessing humanity] shall melt with fervent heat [the fires of hell these elements themselves create], the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy [this pure, uncorrupted, word] conversation [wherein the LORD’s presence is manifested] and godliness [eusebeia – literally meaning to revere good; the same word as in 1 Timothy 3:16, saying, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness {eusebeia}: God was {is} manifest in the flesh {of those speaking His word}, justified in the Spirit {while unknown speaking and working}, seen of angels {those made pure who become His messengers speaking His word}, preached unto the Gentiles {to those who don’t know Him}, believed on in the world {He is now creating}, received up into glory {in those exalting His voice above all other voices}.],
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the [old and corrupted] heavens [where this understanding should be found] being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements [stoicheion – the corrupt foundational ideas of the wicked in power] shall melt [be dissolved] with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our LORD is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrestle, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction [apoleia – perdition].
17 You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.
18 But grow in grace [this gift], and in the knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

The word above, in 1 Timothy 3:16, dubiously rendered “without controversy,” only appearing here, is homologoumenos, from the word homou (same) logos (words) and menuo, meaning “probably from the same base as 3145 [masso – to handle, as in 1 John 1 below] and 3415 [mnaomai – to mentally grasp] (i.e. mao, to strive); to disclose (through the idea of mental effort and thus calling to mind), i.e. report, declare, intimate:–show, tell.”

In this verse (1 Timothy 3:16) Paul says homologoumenos (this same word declared) megas (the greatness found therein) eusebeia (is revering good) musterion Theos phaneroo en sarx (is the mystery of God manifested in the flesh).

This statement comes after (in verse 15) he (Paul) just spoke to Timothy so he would know how to behave (anastrepho – return: in the conversation) to “the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Acts 15
15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
16 After this I will return [anastrepho], and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
17 That the residue of men might seek after the LORD, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, says the LORD, who does all these things.
18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

2 Corinthians 1
9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raises the dead:
10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;
11 You also helping together [under the same sentence, doing the same work] by prayer for us, that for the gift [this understanding from the LORD] bestowed upon us by the means [of answering the prayers] of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf [thanking the LORD for our deliverance and theirs].
12 For our rejoicing [the LORD’s presence realized in this word] is this, the testimony of our conscience [suneidesis – our co-perspective with the LORD], that in simplicity [haplotes – meaning “singleness, i.e. (subjectively) sincerity (without dissimulation or self-seeking), or (objectively) generosity (copious bestowal)] and godly [Theos – from God] sincerity [without leaven: uncorrupted], not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace [this gift] of God, we have had our conversation [anastrepho – in which the LORD is] in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
13 For we write none other things unto you, that what you read or acknowledge [epiginosko – this dispensation of knowledge by the LORD through His gift to us, in this conversation]; and I trust you shall acknowledge [epiginosko – receive the dispensation of knowledge] even to the end [when we receive this full understanding, the light and life of the LORD];
14 As also you have acknowledged [epiginosko – received the dispensation from] us in part, that we are your rejoicing [realizing it is the LORD manifesting His presence in the conversation], even as you also are ours [rejoicing] in the day [when the light and life] of the LORD Jesus [is manifested from you].

1 John 1
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2 (For the life [light and understanding] was manifested, and we have seen it [in the flesh], and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us [in His son, and the children given to him];)
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy [realizing His presence in this manner] may be full.
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light [understanding and life], and in him is no darkness [ignorance] at all.

Ephesians 2
1 And you has he quickened [from the dead into life], who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past you walked according to the course [aion – this age of ignorance] of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air [aer – one of the seven times this word appears, here referring to it and the church darkened by the smoke that comes from the bottomless pit {Revelation 9:2}, meaning all understanding is gone, in the endless fall away from God], the spirit [of ignorance] that now works in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation [anastrepho] in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, has [clearing the air, as in Revelation 16:17] quickened us [from death into life] together with Christ, (by grace [this gift of understanding, light, life] you are saved;)
6 And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places [with full understanding] in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to [aion – the new age now] come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us [giving this understanding] through Christ Jesus [Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the conversation from the flesh He chooses].
8 For by grace [this word] are you saved through faith [it is His manifesting His presence with us, in us]; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift [given] of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works [to give His word as received], which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
11 Wherefore remember, that you being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and [by ignorance] without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who sometimes were far off are made near by the blood [this necessary sacrifice] of Christ [the flesh through which the Father speaks manifesting His presence].
14 For he is our peace, who has made both [God and man] one, and has broken down the middle wall [the veil of flesh] of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity [the ignorance by which we oppose His word and work], even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man [understanding the letter and Spirit of life in the Law], so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile [apokatallasso – change {allasso} us by not only putting down {kata}, but taking away {apo} the sin of ignorance] both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity [the reason for opposition] thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were near.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household [family] of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together grows unto a holy temple in the LORD:
22 In whom you also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit [into His ONE BODY].

The passages above, in verses 13 & 17, describes the reconciling of those “far off” and “near,” talking about those experiencing it, at first in total ignorance (far off), and those now receiving His word (the “access” – prosagoge, literally meaning led forth [by His] leading), drawing nearer (to completion of His work) than the day they first believed.

Romans 13
11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we [first] believed [the LORD is with us, in us].
12 The night [the ignorance that covers the earth] is far spent, the day [this light, life, and understanding] is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness [ignorance], and let us put on the armor [the protection] of light [found in His life and understanding].
13 Let us walk honestly [not handling the word of God deceitfully], as in the day [with this understanding He is freely giving us]; not in rioting [not without self-control] and drunkenness [having our minds, and words, clear of what corrupts them], not in chambering and wantonness [not desiring to be what we are not], not in strife and envying [opposing those who have seen and do know].
14 But put you on the LORD Jesus Christ [this same mind: understanding and life found therein], and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Friends, Paul, the LORD in him speaking, at Mars’ Hill (meaning at the peak of this war between reality and delusion) speaks of this moment when all men have become too superstitious, thinking all is either metaphysical or fictional, and thereby missing the physical reality they are experiencing.

Acts 17
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill [Aireos Pagos – at the “peak of martial,” of God’s people to this battle], and said, You men of Athens [now when man is certain of nothing, and all knowledge is corrupted by an inability to separate truth from opinions: delusions], I perceive that in all things you are too superstitious [deisidaimonesteros – literally meaning they are afraid, fearing the gods of this world, to receive the treasures that will strengthen them: giving certainty to the uncertain].
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God [the Holy Spirit]. Whom therefore you ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is LORD of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands [but in the flesh of those through whom He speaks and works];
25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands [works], as though he needed any thing, seeing he gives to all life [understanding], and breath [breathed from His mouth: words], and all things [needed];
26 And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined [horizo – from where the sun rises] the times before appointed [protasso – prearranged, prescribed: before written, pre ordained], and the bounds [horothesia – laying out the limit: the termination point] of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the LORD [first], if haply they might feel after him [after He has effectually worked in us], and find him, though he be not far from every one of us [always willing to reveal His presence to those who receive Him manifested in His word]:
28 For in him [only do] we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are [by receiving this understanding] also his offspring [in whom He will live, if we become His prepared habitation].
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead [theios] is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device [enthumesis – only appearing four times, all others rendered “thoughts;” here in context discerned to be men’s fictitious writing].
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent [and purge out the blinding corruption]:
31 Because he has appointed a day [a sun rising, after the darkness: this ignorance], in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained [horizo – who is the place from where the sun rises, beginning this new day: age]; whereof he has given assurance unto all men, in that he has raised him from the dead [out of confusion, out of hell, into life in heaven: the place wherein full understanding is found].
32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear you again of this matter.

2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming [parousia] of our LORD Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together [episunagoge – only used here and in Hebrews 10:25 where we’re told not to forsake this {egkateleipo – meaning let this survive when all else doesn’t, as in Hebrews 13:5, when the LORD says He is the one who will remain when all others don’t} as do others; it means a complete collection] 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: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [apostasia – apostasy, defection from truth, standing away from God {because the fallen say they are holier than Him, as in Isaiah 65:5}, as in the bottomless pit John see in Revelation 9:2] first, and that man of sin be revealed [those putting themselves in the Father’s place, in the pattern of Rueben], the son of perdition [apoleia – as in 2 Peter 2:1, 2 & 3 & 3:7 & 16, as used in Revelation twice {in Revelation 17:8 & 11, which happen to the eighth church, who becomes part of Babylon {the mass confusion that rules the world} and ascended from the bottomless pit into perdition, which we’re told in 2 Peter 3:16 is the destruction that comes to the ignorant who wrestle with this word of God to their own “destruction”];
4 Who oppose and exalt himself [Satan in them working and speaking] 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 [as do the many antichrists among us, preaching and teaching their own ways and ideas in LORD’s name].
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, keeping God’s people from joining Him in His ONE BODY] that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work [these wicked men we’re already working, as Paul earlier describes in 1 Thessalonians 2, Satan working in them to keep this true word of God from being heard, as he also speaks of in 2 Thessalonians 3] only he who now lets [katecho – who were then holding God’s people down, oppressing them so the word of God wouldn’t have free course and be receives as His, as it is] will let [will hold you down], until he be taken out of the way [mesos – these men and their teaching taken out of our midst].
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume [as in Hebrews 12, by His correction] with the spirit of [fire from] His mouth [shaking heaven and earth, so the wicked are shaken from them], and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming [parousia]:
9 Even him [the LORD], whose coming [parousia] is after the working of Satan [in wicked men] with all power [in church and state] and signs and lying wonders [which caused the apostasy and fool men into following them and not the LORD among us, who said “I will never leave you or forsake you”],
10 And [these wicked men] with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [And I must again here digress; I hear many people speaking of those they think are prophets because they saw this or that event occurring. These men are not prophets of God, and we know because they lack one thing, the knowledge of God. These are those bumbling about seeking what they will never find, never saying “Thus says the LORD” and, not knowing the time of their visitation, never speaking the words He here alone reveals. Thus says the LORD, “If they speak not according to this word there is no light in them.” They are those, too superstitious, Paul {the LORD in him} speaks to and of on Mars’ Hill.]
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [believing their own opinions are truth, as they do: “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before my eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.” Isaiah 66:4]:
12 That they all might be damned 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 chosen you to salvation through sanctification of 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.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions [paradosis – transmitted, given as received, as in I Corinthians 11:2] which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16 Now our LORD Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved [agapao – given His word to] us, and has given us everlasting consolation [paraklesis – from the Paraclete, the LORD working among us unknown] and good hope through grace [this gift],
17 Comfort [parakaleo] your hearts [continue His calling from your sound mind], and establish you in every good word and work.

1 Peter 2
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking,
2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow 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.
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.
7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, 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 offense, 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 you out of darkness into his marvelous light;
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.
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 [those who don’t know the LORD]: 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 – the days of the Chief Overseer].

As previously discussed, Jeremiah 13 begins with the LORD telling Jeremiah to take a girdle (a preparation, for a journey) and hide it in a hole in a rock near Euphrates.

Jeremiah 13
5 So I went, and hid it by Euphrates [this river of fruitfulness, wherein it should be found], as the LORD commanded me.
6 And it came to pass after many days [in these last days], that the LORD said unto me, Arise [rise to life from death’s sleep], go to Euphrates [this fruitful river in which is the preparation], and take the girdle [preparation] from thence, which I commanded you to hide there.
7 Then I went to Euphrates, and digged, and took the girdle from the place where I had hid it: and, behold, the girdle was marred [shachath – decayed and ruined in the earth], it was profitable for nothing.

As we know, from Revelation 16, this river is now dried up (by the sixth angel poring out the LORD’s wrath upon it: this word they reject) and what is (now was) hidden below its surface is revealed.

[From the post of 17 January 2024] In Revelation 16, between the sixth and seventh angel sounding, the LORD tells of manifesting His presence (name and identity) through (with and in) the seventh messenger (the only voice speaking for Him, with His authority),

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

15 Behold, I [have] come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame [disappointment when what {I Am} they didn’t expect comes].
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [this mountain of the rendezvous at this decreed time].
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air [clearing the smoke [[that came from the fall in the bottomless pit – Revelation 9:2]] so everything is clearly seen as it is]; and there came a [one] great [[megas]] voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne [of God], saying, “It is done.”
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great [[megas]] earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake [to shake the wicked from heaven and earth], and so great. [Are you ready?]
19 And the great [[megas]] city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away [and this word of God will be heard in all the places that have been without it], and the mountains [the high places, seats of power of the wicked] were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great [[megas]] hail out of heaven [this word reserved there for this moment, sent [[in this time of war]] to destroy the current crop of corrupt leaders], every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Jeremiah 13
9 Thus says the LORD, After this manner will I mar [shachath – cause to decay into ruin] the pride of Judah [the preparation the leaders of God’s people corrupted, and in their pride refuse to hear My correction back to purity], and the great pride of Jerusalem [God’s people into which these unfaithful leaders worked their leaven, until the whole is corrupted and worthless]. [Matthew 16:12 “Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of” their leaders who’ve corrupted God’s word as delivered and thereby led the world into darkness and death].
10 This evil people, which refuse to hear [shama’ – or obey] my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart [the creation of their own minds: abomination {opinions: delusions} they created, put in My place, and call by My name], and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle [‘ezowr – the preparation left them], which is [now corrupt and] good for nothing.
11 For as the girdle [‘ezowr] cleaves [dabaq] to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave [dabaq] unto me [alone] the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, says the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear [shama’ – or obey My good leading].

The word dabaq, meaning “to impinge, i.e. cling or adhere; figuratively, to catch by pursuit,” speaks of the snare upon all the earth, in which man is “caught up” (Hebrew, natsal or Greek, harpazo – seized) by God. Above, it speaks, as now, of men refusing this rescue.

The Greek equivalent of the word dabaq, is kollao (the origin of the name Colossians), meaning “from kolla (“glue”); to glue, i.e. (passively or reflexively) to stick (figuratively):–cleave, join (self), keep company.”

1 Corinthians 6
14 And God has both raised up the LORD, and will also raise up us by his own power [His word that effectually works in us, changing our mind to be like His].
15 Know you not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of a harlot [the unfaithful who’ve left the LORD and follow men who put themselves in His place]? God forbid.
16 What? know you not that he which is joined [kallao] to a harlot [the unfaithful who sleep in death with these wicked men] is one body? for two, says he, shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined [kallao – cleaves] unto the LORD is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication [interaction with these men who’ve become idols who’ve put themselves in the LORD’s place]. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that commits fornication [whose interaction is the wicked and not the LORD] sins against his own body [choosing this darkness chooses condemnation].
19 What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [the LORD whom you apparently don’t know] which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own?
20 For you are bought with a price [time – Tim]: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Colossians 1
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus [meaning time {price} of God] our brother [I Am],
2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse [who now cleave to the LORD, joined with Him as ONE BODY]: Grace [this gift] be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the LORD Jesus Christ.
3 We give thanks to God and the Father of our LORD Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
4 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love [agape – giving this word as received] which you have [received as His word] to all the saints,
5 For the hope which is laid up [prepared] for you in heaven, whereof you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;
6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and brings forth fruit, as it does also in you, since the day you heard of it, and knew [it is] the grace of God in truth:
7 As you also learned of Epaphras [from whom this fruitfulness flows] our dear fellow-servant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;
8 Who also declared unto us your love [agape – your charity, freely give this word] in the Spirit [the LORD, unknown to the world, working through you, in you].
9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
10 That you might walk worthy of the LORD unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power [of His word effectually working], unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness [realizing it is the LORD’s presence manifested in you, through you];
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet [hikanoo – meaning “to enable, i.e. qualify:–make able (meet)] to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light [this understanding, this life]:
13 Who has delivered us from the power of darkness [ignorance], and has translated us [methe – carried us away from ignorance and corruption] into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature [ktisis – this new creation]:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness [of His understanding] dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile [apokatallasso] all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled [apokatallasso]
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
23 If you continue in the faith [that the Father is always with us, in us] grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Am made a minister;
24 Who now rejoice [realizing the LORD’s presence is manifested] in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church [His ONE BODY]:
25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil [accomplish and complete] the word of God;
26 Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches [this full understanding] of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles [who don’t know Him and are therefore blinded to His presence]; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 Whereunto I also labor, striving according to his working, which works in me mightily.

Jeremiah 13
15 Hear [shama’ – and obey] you, and give ear; be not proud: for the LORD has spoken.
16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he causes darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while you look for light, he turns it into the shadow of death, and makes it gross darkness.
17 But if you will not hear [shama’ – and obey] it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and my eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the LORD’s flock is carried away captive.
18 Say unto the king and to the queen, Humble yourselves, sit down: for your principalities shall come down, even the crown of your glory.
19 The cities of the south shall be shut up, and none shall open them: Judah shall be carried away captive all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive.
20 Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north [out of darkness]: where is the flock that was given you, your beautiful flock?
21 What will you say when he shall punish [paqad – comes as the Chief Overseer of the earth, to] you? for you have taught them [the rulers of the darkness] to be captains, and as chief over you: shall not sorrows take you, as a woman in travail [readied to bring forth the seed of David, the seed of Joseph his ‘adown]?
22 And if you say in your heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of your iniquity are your skirts discovered, and your heels made bare.
23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may you also do good, that are accustomed to do evil [whose flesh mind is stained by darkness and misled you into desolation and tribulation].
24 Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passes away by the wind of [their false doctrines: corruption they learned, which brought them into] the wilderness.
25 This is your lot [of those who refuse to hear His voice and obey His commands], the portion of your measures from me, says the LORD; because you have forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.

Amos 9
8 Behold, the eyes of the LORD God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, says the LORD.
9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel [the people who receive Me and My promise] among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom [the enemies mixed among us at war with us while calling it peace], and of all the heathen [who refuse to know Me], which are called by my name, says the LORD that does this.

Psalms 27
A Psalm of David
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength [understanding] of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though a host [an army] should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When you said, Seek you my face [paniym – presence]; my heart said unto you, Your face [paniym – presence], LORD, will I seek.
9 Hide not your face [paniym – presence] far from me; put not your servant away in anger: you have been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of my enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of my enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart [give understanding into the minds of those who]: wait, I say, on the LORD.

You did run well; who did hinder you that you should not obey the truth?

13 – 15 July 2024

You did run well; who did hinder you that you should not obey the truth?

The above, Galatians 5:7, comes as Paul, the LORD alive in him speaking, discusses obeying the Law or Christ, the written letter, or diligently seeking to fulfill its underlying Spirit. Paul speaks of preaching the Law and circumcision of the mind, by which understanding comes, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

He (Paul), describing his suffering for preaching this underlying rudimentary principle, says, “And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is [if I did not necessarily suffer this tribulation for your sakes] the offense of the cross ceased.”

As previously discussed, the word rendered “offense” is the skandalon (scandal), meaning “a trap-stick (bent sapling), i.e. snare (figuratively, cause of displeasure or sin).” It speaks of the “snare” that has now come upon all the world, and specifically God’s “holier than thou” people who are offended at the Father’s appearance in (what they define as) my scandalous flesh.

The word is said to be derived from the kampto, meaning “to bend.” It (kampto) is used four times, all telling of who men “bow” their knee to, men as idols who put themselves in His place or the LORD to whom all will “bow.”

Galatians 5
12 I would they [those who make themselves gods, idols, the hyper-religious, who, claiming they know the “Law,” put themselves in the Father’s place] were even cut off which trouble you.
13 For, brethren, you have been called unto liberty [away from the rudiments of this world, the corrupt elements, partials understanding without the Spirit]; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love [agape – leading the world out of darkness into the light: giving this understanding as received by the Spirit of truth, the Paraclete, the LORD working among us unknown, whose led us into it] serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word [logos – “Divine Expression”], even in this; You shall love [agapao] your neighbor as yourself.
15 But if you bite and devour one another [as serpents and whales mixed among God’s people], take heed [be warned] that you be not consumed one of another.
16 This I say then, Walk in the [high way of the] Spirit [the truth into which He’s led us], and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

The word rendered “consume” is the three times used word analisko, meaning “to use up, i.e. destroy:–consume.” The first of these other uses comes in Luke 9:54, as James and John, seeing rejected the messengers the LORD sent to prepare the way before Him, ask the LORD, “will you that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume [analisko] them, even as Elijah did?”

Luke 9
55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, You know not what manner of spirit you are of.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

Before looking at the other use of analisko, we must remember the LORD’s words from John 3, first saying the Son of man has come to save the world, but there is a decision (krisis) by which men condemn themselves when this truth (understanding, light, life) has come, and men choose to remain the darkness (ignoring the light) because their deeds are evil.

2 Thessalonians 2
8 And then shall that Wicked [who are offended by this word, who trouble you and seek to keep you held down in their darkness] be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume [analisko] with the spirit of [this word from] his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness [shining this understanding as the light] of his coming:
9 Even him [I Am], whose coming is after [the falling away from truth and light, which is among you] the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of [agape – leading us out darkness, by] the truth [light and life], that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [the insanity that now permeates all the institutions of church and state that are possessed by Satan], that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness [as they do, with pride].

Romans 11
2 God has not cast away his people [those held in the places possessed by Satan, here in hell] which he foreknew. Wot you not what the scripture says of Elijah? how he made intercession to God against Israel saying,
3 LORD, they have killed your prophets, and digged down your altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
4 But what says the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed [kampto] the knee to the image of Baal [the gods of this evil world].
5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace [given this gift from the LORD, His testimony by which he saves us].
6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace [the gift] is no more grace [is not a gift]. But if it be of [men’s] works, then it is no more grace [a gift from God]: otherwise work [to which he has called us] is no more work [for which we are prepared, to deliver the gift freely, as received].
7 What then? Israel has not obtained that which he seeks for; but the election has obtained it, and the rest were blinded.

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 [as is the work of Satan]; but by manifestation of [phanerosis – making apparent] the truth commending ourselves [suniemi – introducing, establishing] to every man’s conscience [suneidesis – to produce a co-perspective, agreement with Him, seeing as He sees] in the sight [realizing the presence] of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god [men as idols] of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not [the LORD is present with us, in us], lest the light [understanding] of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the LORD; and ourselves your servants [working] for Jesus’ sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light [this understanding] to shine out of darkness [among the ignorant], has shined in our hearts [minds], to give the light [understanding] of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face [presence] of Jesus Christ [Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in this high way, in scandalous flesh].

Romans 11
8 (According as it is written, God has given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Isaiah 29
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder [not knowing what you are experiencing]; cry you out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For the LORD has poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep [with no signs of life], and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers [ra’ah – those who see as God sees] has he covered [kacah].
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book [cepher] that is sealed [chatham], which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed [chatham]:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart [the foundations of their mind – their stiocheion, the elements of their understanding, are corrupt and disordered] far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous [eye opening] work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder [pele’ – at which all have wondered]: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their [wicked] counsel [‘etsah] from the LORD, and their works are in the dark [their own ignorance of reality and truth they can’t understand because it is as a foreign language], and they say, Who sees us? and who knows us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down [the overthrow] shall be esteemed as the potter’s [yatsar] clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed [yatser] say of him that framed [yatsar] it, He had no understanding?
17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon [where purity should be seen in high places] shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest [of upright men]?
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
19 The meek [who shall inherit the earth] also shall increase their joy in [realizing the presence of] the LORD, and the poor [those without worldly power] among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20 For the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
21 That make a man an offender [scandalous] for a word [they say violates the falsely so-called “moral” code on this evil time: the rudiments, stoicheion, of this evil world], and lay a snare for him that reproves in the gate [out of hell into the kingdom of God], and turn aside the just [from entering] for a thing of naught [an offense that isn’t one].
22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed [padah] Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale [but they will reach the end promised].
23 But when he sees his children [who have been born again out of death and hell], the work of my hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name [declare My identity Holy], and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured [against me] shall learn doctrine.

Romans 11
9 And David says, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling-block [skandalon], and a recompence unto them:
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back always.

Psalms 69
13 But as for me, my prayer 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 [of men’s corruption, that has clouded these waters, and hidden understanding from their eyes], and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters [the wicked in power have darkened].
15 Let not the waterflood [of the wicked] 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 – under enemy attack]: hear me speedily.
18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of my enemies [‘oyeb – who hate me].
19 You have known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonor: my adversaries [who heap these things upon me] are all before you.
20 Reproach 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, but I found none.
21 [At my cross] They gave me also gall [their poisonous words] for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
22 Let their table become a snare before [paniym – by Your presence unknown to] them: and that [this word they reject] which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
24 Pour out your indignation [za’am – that ends in their destruction] 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.

Romans 11
11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles [unbelievers, who haven’t known the LORD], for to provoke them to jealousy [parazeloo – bring heat to those who call themselves believers, who are ignorant of their fallen condition].
12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of [this gift, grace to] the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness [when they likewise receive this gift]?
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 [parazeloo – bring heat to] them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling [katallage – the course adjustment] of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
16 For if the first-fruit [the elect remnant] be holy, the lump [the risen BODY they’ve provoked to emulation] is also holy: and if the root [from where this gift flows] be holy, so are the branches.

The “fall,” into death’s sleep, Paul speaks of twice above, is the Greek word paraptoma, said to mean “a side-slip (lapse or deviation), i.e. (unintentional) error or (wilful) transgression.” Its deeper meaning is in the words para (from beside or near) and potamos, meaning “a current, brook or freshet (as drinkable), i.e. running water.” This latter word (patomos) speaks of water that flows as a flood against humanity and those combating them as “rivers” of pure living water whose origin is the Father in heaven.

Romans 9
27 Isaiah also cries [in Isaiah 1:9] concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be 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 said before, Except the LORD of Sabaoth [commander of the army of heaven] had left us a seed, we had been as Sodom, and been made like unto Gomorrah. [Isaiah 1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. 10 Hear {shama’ – and obey} the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.]
30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed [obeyed] not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
31 But Israel, which followed [obeyed] 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 of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling-stone;
33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumbling-stone and rock of offence [skandalon – the scandal of the LORD’s word flowing from the flesh of a man disapproved by the self-righteous who say it should be otherwise, according to their words]: and whosoever believes on [the Father’s words from] him shall not be ashamed.

Remember, this last verse is quoted from Isaiah 28:16, which speaks to and of the same people as above at this moment. It speaks of those who’ve made a covenant with death, and are in agreement with hell, to whom comes this rest and refreshing, which they refuse.

Isaiah 28
5 In that day [today is the day, this time of light] shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem [tsphiyrah – only appearing two other times, in Ezekiel 7:7 and 7:10, when it is the “morning” that has now come, saying “The morning {tsphiyrah} is come unto you, O you that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.” and “Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning {tsphiyrah} is gone forth; the rod has blossomed, pride has budded.”] of beauty, unto the residue of his people,
6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate. [Ezekiel 7:8 & 9 say, “Now will I shortly {a short work will the LORD make upon the earth, because the bed upon which humanity sleeps is shorter than humanity itself, who will remain} pour out my fury upon you, and accomplish my anger upon you: and I will judge you according to your ways, and will recompense you for all your abominations. And my eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense you according to your ways and your abominations that are in the midst of you; and you shall know that I am the LORD that smites.”]
7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
8 For all tables [that have become a snare upon them] are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine [shmuw’ah – {shama’ Yahh} heard and obeyed this voice of Jehovah teaching]? them that are weaned from the milk [receiving the foundational element of truth, have advanced in understanding, into perfection], and drawn [now draw] from the breasts [of the Ancient of Days – as we know, the word here rendered “drawn” is ‘attiyq, only appearing elsewhere in 1 Chronicles 4:22, where it speaks of the “ancient” things, the work of those that dwelt with the king].
10 For [as here] precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue [the truth: a foreign language to those who only know corruption] will he speak to this people.
12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith you may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they [refused and] would not hear [shama’ – and obey].
13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
14 Wherefore hear [shama’ – and obey] 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 [this] overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus says the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste [shall not be taken away with the flood of men’s lying words, the shame that comes upon those who refuse this rest and refreshing].
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and [the] righteousness [of God] to the plummet [against which your righteousness shall be judged]: and the hail [the word frozen in heaven, reserved there for this moment] shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters [His word from heaven] shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell [sheol] shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge [showt] shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you [in its snare]: for morning by morning shall it pass over [‘abar – the bringing the Passover from death into life for those who receive it as His word], by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report [shmuw’ah – only to understand it is the voice of Jehovah manifesting His presence to those who receive Him].
20 For the bed is shorter than that a man [sleeping in death] can stretch himself on it: and the covering [of lies and falsehood] narrower than that he can wrap [hide] 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 army 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.
23 Give you ear, and hear [shama’ – and obey] my voice; hearken, and hear [shama’ – and obey] my speech.

1 Peter 2
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking,
2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby:
3 If so be you have tasted that the LORD is gracious [freely giving this gift to all].
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen 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.
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded.
7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them [those who claim they are builders but are in truth the destroyers of the world] which be disobedient [incorrigibles who refuse to obey], the stone [I Am] which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner [turning men’s heads back to the LORD],
8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense [skandalon], even to them which stumble at the word [this word from the mouth of the LORD, with which they ignorantly wrestle into perdition], being disobedient [refusing to obey the voice of the Father]: whereunto also they were appointed.
9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness [the ignorance and insanity that covers the now dead world] into his marvelous [eye opening] light [understanding and life];
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.

Jonah 2
1 Then Jonah [the dove, whose voices are the sign of the end reached] prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s [dagah] belly [the source of the agitation of humanity, the evil intention, below the surface of men’s words, to gain and keep power],
2 And said, I cried by reason of my affliction [tsarah – this tribulation] unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell [sheol] cried I, and you heard my voice.
3 For you had cast me into the deep [this full circuit into understanding], in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all your billows and your waves passed over me [‘abar – to bring me from death into life again].
4 Then I said, I am cast out of your sight [no longer seeing as you see]; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.
5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains [to the lowest degeneration of the earth ruled by tyrants in power over church and state]; the earth with her bars was about me forever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.
7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto you, into your holy temple.
8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
9 But I will sacrifice unto you with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that [to open my mouth when You call] that I have vowed [the mission on which we are sent]. Salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus] is of the LORD [Jehovah manifesting His salvation in our flesh].
10 And the LORD spoke unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land [where this word of LORD isn’t yet heard].

Romans 4
13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith [acting, hearing the LORD’s voice and obeying His commands, in the moment].
14 For if they which are of the law [the written word, the spirit of which is always corrupt in the hands of those it is left to be protected in pure form] be heirs, faith [hearing the LORD’s voice that comes to interrupt the strays and correct them back on His course] is made void, and the promise [of this salvation, His promised rescue] made of none effect:
15 Because the law [in man’s hands] works wrath: for where no law is [when a state of nature exists, without any pure law], there is no transgression [only consequence]. [Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law {restoring it to its holy place in pure form}.]
16 Therefore it [receiving the LORD at His interruption and correction] is of faith, that it might be by grace [the free gift given – to those who receive or refuse it]; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed [who do receive it]; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of [hearing the LORD’s voice and following His commands, as did] Abraham; who is the father of us all [who receive this promise [now at His appearing and kingdom],
17 (As it is written, I have made you a father of many nations,) before him [in the LORD’s presence] whom he believed [and acted], even God, who quickens the dead [to life], and calls [brings to light] those things which be not [yet seen] as though they were [always there, prepared, waiting for His revelation].
18 Who against hope [stated in His promise] believed in hope [of receiving it when it comes], that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall your seed be. [Genesis 22:17 That in blessing I will bless you {with this gift}, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore {when humanity reaches this appointed time, this limit, where the proud waves of the wicked are stopped}; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies {holding humanity in death and hell}; 18 And in your seed {who receive the promise by faith} shall all the nations of the earth be blessed {by this same gift of light: synonymously life and understanding} because you have obeyed {shama’} my voice.]
19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God [who manifests Himself in things the unfaithful thinks are impossible];
21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our LORD from the dead;
25 Who was delivered for [because of] our offences [paraptoma – the degeneration of understanding the Spirit in the law], and was raised again for our justification [to restore this understanding through judgment].

Here Him, not me.

Romans 5
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our LORD Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace [this gift of light] wherein we stand [and live], and rejoice in hope of the glory of God [revealed to us, and in us].
3 And not only so, but we glory [know He is presence with us] in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works patience;
4 And patience [waiting for Him to finish His short work upon the earth], experience; and experience[ing Him in His word and work], hope:
5 And hope [knowing He will finish it] make not ashamed [we will not be disappoint because we will reach the end He promises]; because the love of God is shed abroad [ekphuo – through springing forth from good ground] in our hearts [minds] by the Holy Ghost [the LORD with us, working and speaking unknown to reveal Himself to us, in us] which is given unto us. [One of the three times the word phuo appears is in Luke 8:8, saying, “And other fell on good ground, and sprang up {phuo}, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that has ears to hear, let him hear.”]
6 For when we were yet without strength [understanding by which we rise to life], in due time Christ died [to give us this understanding] for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died [and came here to hell where all are held in death] for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood [the sacrifice necessary to bring this message, manifesting therein the Father’s identity], we shall be saved from wrath through him [which comes upon those who refuse correction and continue into the consequence of going their own way].
10 For if, when we were enemies [opposing Him here in hell], we were reconciled [katallasso – the change away from corruption] to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled [katallasso – changed away from corruption], we shall be saved by his life [risen here in hell to free us by His truth]. [1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed {allasso}, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling {of stars to light} of an eye {by seeing as the LORD sees}, at the last trump {this voice of His archangel}: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed {allasso}. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.]
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God [realizing His presence with us] through our LORD Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement [katallage – this needed adjustment].
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned [hamartano – strayed from the course to this goal and were on a trajectory that would miss the target]:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law [only consequence, missing the promised end].
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure [the first man of this new heaven and earth] of him that was to come [I Am].
15 But not as the offence [paraptoma], so also is the free gift [shed upon all]. For if through the offence [paraptoma] of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ [Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in my flesh], has abounded unto many [to be manifested in their flesh; I and the children the LORD has given me: His ONE BODY].
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift [not by one who is missing the mark]: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences [paraptoma] unto justification.
17 For if by one man’s offence [paraptoma] death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence [paraptoma] of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life [understanding and light].
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience [to the commands of the LORD] of one [I have been sent for this purpose, this is my mission] shall many be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence [paraptoma] might [not receiving correction] abound. But where sin abounded, grace [this gift, the full circuit, the LORD’s long suffering, that brings victory over death and hell] did much more abound [bringing the correction]:
21 That as sin has reigned unto death, even so might grace reign [the gift now exalted above all the words of corruption] through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our LORD.

The word katallage, meaning “exchange (figuratively, adjustment), i.e. restoration to (the divine) favor,” appears two other times, in 2 Corinthians 5. In the same chapter the word katallasso also appears three times (of six total uses).

2 Corinthians 5
1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle [our flesh] were dissolved, we have a building of God, a [spirit] house [the OND BODY] not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. [1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the LORD from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the {mortal} image of the earthy, we shall also bear the {immortal} image of the heavenly. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot {without a living spirit, quickened in our dead flesh} inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption {of the flesh} inherit incorruption {of the Spirit}. 51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all {in the flesh} be changed {allasso}, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling {of stars to light} of an eye {by seeing as the LORD sees}, at the last trump {this voice of His archangel}: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised {their dead flesh brought to life} incorruptible, and we shall be changed {allasso}. 53 For this corruptible {flesh} must put on {be clothed upon with} incorruption, and this mortal {flesh} must put on {be clothed upon with} immortality. 54 So when this corruptible {flesh} shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal {flesh} shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.]
2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house [in the LORD ONE incorruptible BODY] which is from heaven:
3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this [flesh] tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5 Now he that has wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also has given unto us the earnest of [the deposit, of Himself risen from the dead, alive in] the Spirit.
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home [endemeo – bound to this evil generation] in the body [soma – in the corrupt body], we are absent [ekdemos – by being joined being joined with that body] from [apo – away from] the LORD:
7 (For we walk by faith [believing the LORD is alive in us], not by sight [the temporal, outward appearance]:)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent [ekdemeo – by being joined with the LORD] from the body [soma – not part of the corrupt body], and to be present [endemeo – at home] with the LORD [dwelling in Him, and He in us].
9 Wherefore we labor, that, whether present [endemeo] or absent [ekdemeo], we may be accepted of [euarestos – we may be made well by agreement with] him.
10 For we must all appear before the judgment [mercy] seat of Christ [Jonah 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.]; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he has done, whether it be good or bad.
11 Knowing therefore the terror of the LORD, we persuade men [to agree with Him, that they be not consumed by the own corrupt understanding]; but we are made manifest unto [phaneroo – rendering apparent] God [in us]; and I trust also are made manifest [phaneroo – we render His presence in us] in your consciences [suneidesis – your co-perspective, your agreement with Him, seeing as He sees].
12 For we commend [suniemi – introduce, establish] not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf [realizing He is manifesting His presence in us, through us], that you may have somewhat to answer them which glory in [their outward, temporal] appearance, and not in heart [His mind given to us, by which He lives in us and we in Him].
13 For whether we be beside ourselves [existemi – astounded at this revelation, still not understanding the difference between reality and man’s delusions: insanity], it is to God [to bring you to His understanding, at His will]: or whether we be sober [sophroneo – sane], it is for your cause [that thought us He may work His will].
14 For the love of Christ constrains us [sunecho – holds us together]; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead [needing to hear His word, by which man lives]:
15 And that he died for all [to bring this life to us], that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but [denying themselves, live] unto him which died for them, and rose again.
16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh [the outward appearance]: yea, though we have known Christ after [He was manifested in] the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more [by His flesh].
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ [and Christ in him], he is a new creature: old [dead] things are passed away; behold, all things [by His Spirit working and speaking unknown in the flesh] are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who has reconciled [katallasso – changed us by putting down the power of corruption] us to himself by Jesus Christ [Jehovah manifesting Himself in the flesh, to rescue us from ourselves], and has given to us the ministry [diakonia] of reconciliation [katallage];
19 To wit [hos – In this manner], that God was [is] in Christ, reconciling [katallasso] the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation [katallage].
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though [hos – in this manner] God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be you reconciled [katallasso] to God.
21 For he has made him to be sin [here in scandalous flesh] for us, who [before his corrupted flesh] knew no sin; that we might be made [as I have] the righteousness of God in him.

The word diakonia, rendered “ministry” in verse 18 above, is said to mean “attendance (as a servant, etc.); figuratively (eleemosynary) aid, (official) service (especially of the Christian teacher, or technically of the diaconate).” The word konia means to whiten, and dia means the channel through which it comes, above telling us the course adjustment(katallage) comes through whitening, purity by which we see God, not as man sees, but with His eyes seeing the unseen and eternal.

1 John 1
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2 (For the life [light and understanding] was manifested, and we have seen it [in the flesh], and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us [in His son, and the children given to him];)
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy [realizing His presence in this manner] may be full.
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light [understanding and life], and in him is no darkness [ignorance] at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness [in ignorance of His presence with us, in us], we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light [His understanding given], as [hos – in the same manner] he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin [no corruption that needs to be washed away, whitened, by His word], we deceive [planao] ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

1 John 2
1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that you sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation [hilasmos, with affinity to hileos, equivalent of the Hebrew word calach, referring us to Exodus 34:9 saying, “And he {Moses} said, If now I have found grace in your sight, O LORD, let my LORD, I pray you, go among us; for it is a stiff-necked people; and pardon {calach} our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance.” And speaking of when all will, by His teaching, know the LORD, saying in Jeremiah 31:34, “And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says the LORD: for I will forgive {calach – hileos in Hebrews 8:12} their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”] for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that says, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keeps [tereo – guards from corruption] his word, in him truly is the love [agape – leading men out of darkness, by giving the uncorrupted word as received] of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked [in the same manner].
7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you have heard from the beginning.
8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shines.
9 He that says he is in the light [has this understanding], and hates [refuses to give it to] his brother, is in darkness even until now.
10 He that loves his brother abides in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling [skandalon] in him [not thinking the LORD speaking from the flesh is scandalous].
11 But he that hate his brother is in darkness, and walketh [his own way is] in darkness, and knows not whither he goes, because that darkness has blinded his eyes.
12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake [to make His identity known].
13 I write unto you, fathers, because you have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because you have known the Father [manifested in His voice].
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because you have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one [the devils among us opposing and resisting the LORD’s work through us, in us].
15 Love not the [current corrupt] world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides forever.
18 Little children, it is the last time [‘achariyth in Hebrew]: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; 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 [chrisma – an anointing] from the Holy One, and you know all things.
21 I have not written unto you because you know not the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father: he that acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 Let that therefore abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning. If that which you have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise that he has promised us, even eternal life.
26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce [planao – deceive] you.
27 But the anointing [this word and calling] which you have received of him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him.
28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear [phaneroo – is rendered apparent], we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that every one that does righteousness is born of him.

Psalms 139
1 O LORD, you have searched me, and known me.
2 You know my down-sitting and my uprising, you understand my thought afar off [rachowq – this time when the world is ruled by the evil decrees of wicked men in power].
3 You compasses my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word in my tongue [that is good, except for Your words], but, lo, O LORD, you know it altogether.
5 You have beset me behind and before, and laid your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
7 Whither shall I go from your spirit? or whither shall I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, you are there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning [rising by this light you have given me], and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall your hand lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night [revealing this time when ignorance covers the earth] shall be light [shall be understood] about me.
12 Yea, the darkness [men’s ignorance] hides not from you; but the night shineth [is by You given understanding] as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to you.
13 For you have possessed my reins: you have covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.
15 My substance was not hid from you, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in your book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious also are your thoughts unto me, O God! how significant is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with you.
19 Surely you will slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, you bloody men.
20 For they speak against you wickedly, and your enemies take your name in vain.
21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate you? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against you?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

30 June – 3 July 2024

And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

The above, in which the LORD begins today, is Daniel 8:25, speaking of the one who embodies Satan, the leader of the antichrist movement: the rebellion against God and all that is good. He is said to “stand up against the Prince of princes,” the coming king, engaged in this battle to retake the throne.

When this satanic figure is said to “magnify” himself in his own mind, the word is gadal, meaning he exalts himself above God’s presence in the Prince, and does it by “peace,” from the word shalvah, meaning “security (genuine or false):–abundance, peace(-ably), prosperity, quietness.”

As we know, this word describes the enemies (and their leaders) among us as our friends, neighbors, and brethren (like Esau), who are stealthily warring against us, our better ideas (culture), and our nation as constituted.

We know (from verse 26) the time described is “of the evening and the morning,” which tells of the darkness (mass ignorance of God’s presence) coming and of understanding returning after the vision is shut up, “for it shall be for many days.”

The time is expressly spoken of, first in verse 19, and after in verse 23. Before reading the following passage, remember all the meaning therein has been sealed (as the LORD proclaimed it would be), always present but unknown in the darkness, in the furnace of the earth, which Abraham saw, held (in men’s ignorance and given false meanings from their imaginations) behind the gates of hell in the belly of the earth.

Daniel 8
15 And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.
16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai [the river of Elam, carrying the LORD’s written word through eternity – said to mean “my leaders (mighties),” in whose voices Daniel heard the LORD’s presence unfolding], which called, and said, Gabriel [meaning “warrior of God” and “man of God”], make this man to understand the vision.
17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and [realizing it was the presence of the LORD manifested] fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end [qets – now when the light returnes] shall be the vision [mar’eh – it shall come into view: its meaning will appear].
18 Now as he was speaking [from the written word, the LORD’s power working in my mind] with me, I [realized I] was in a deep sleep [radam – the time Abraham saw would come; as was Jonah before he realized he was in the belly of hell] on my face [paniym – present] toward the ground [‘erets – in the earth]: but he touched me, and set me upright.
19 And he said, Behold, I will make you know what shall be in the last end [‘achariyth – these last days of darkness] of the indignation [za’am – which ends in the destruction of the wicked]: for at the time appointed [mow’ed – the time of the “congregation,” the gathering of the LORD’s ONE BODY] the end [qets] shall be.
20 The ram [Abraham saw] which you saw having two horns [caught in the thicket, powers bound together] are the kings of Media [over the people caught in the middle of the time between then and now] and Persia [and over all purity, uncorrupted truth, ending it].
21 And the rough [sa’iyr – the devil, as Esau, enemies among us at war with us, neighbors and brethren, calling it peace] goat [misleading the people of God’s promise] is the king of Grecia [yavah – whose effervescing produced the next four kingdoms, the children of Edom]: and the great horn [power to rule] that is between his eyes [seeing the ways into darkness] is the first [chief] king.
22 Now that being broken [shabar – this is the end of understanding; referring us to its used in Job 38:10 & 15, when understanding was taken from the earth, and darkness reigned until the end, when it’s withheld from the wicked, until the morning {boqer}], whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation [the four sons of Esau], but not in his power.
23 And in the latter time [‘achariyth – these last days of darkness] of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king [this is Obama, the fifth child of Esau, see Genesis 36 below] of fierce [‘az – this is the pattern repeated in a direct reference to Rueben, Simeon, and Levi, as described in Genesis 49: 3 & 7; {Reuben} as the son of perdition and those who followed what effervesced from his putting himself in his father’s place; see below] countenance [paniym – Satan’s presence in Obama in these patterns], and understanding dark sentences [chiydah – the ways into darkness, as a child of Lucifer, the false light, “Rules For Radicals”], shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power [but in the power of Satan manifested in him]: and he shall destroy wonderfully [all wondering who it is destroying], and shall prosper [by deception], and practice [the “Rules” he understands], and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people [see Deuteronomy 32:36, which speaks of when the LORD sees His people’s power is gone and none are left with understanding, He appears].
25 And through his policy [sekel – His understanding; the evil decrees by which tyrants now rule the world] also he shall cause craft [mirmar – deception] to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify [gadal – exalt] himself in his heart, and by [claims of] peace [masking his war of deception against God and His people] shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes [I Am]; but he shall be broken without hand.
26 And the vision of the evening [understanding leaving for many days] and the morning [boqer – it returning as the light of this new day] which [which is the subject] was told is true: wherefore [until the morning] shut you up [in men’s ignorance] the vision; for it shall be for many days [the end now reached].
27 And I Daniel [the judgment of God] fainted, and was sick [became without strength] certain days; afterward I rose up [quwm – in this resurrection], and did the king’s business [the work, the course, the LORD has set before us]; and I was astonished at [shamem – realizing these things now seen in] the vision, but none understood it.

Genesis 49
1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days [‘achariyth – in these last days of darkness].
2 Gather yourselves together, and hear [shama’ – and obey the voice of the LORD], you sons of Jacob; and hearken [shama’ – and obey] unto Israel your father.
3 Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
4 Unstable [pachaz – ebullition, effervescence, “recklessness, wantonness, unbridled license, frothiness”] as water [this tells of the advice of the serpent, as one of God’s children, with unbridled license, recklessly reinterpreting His word], you shall not excel [not remain among God’s risen people]; because you went up to your father’s bed [went into the women – God’s people who have His words]; then defiled [corrupted] you it: he went up to my couch [took God’s place among His sleeping people].
5 Simeon and Levi are brethren [names meaning those hearing and joining this teaching that replaced God’s]; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.
6 O my soul, come not you into their secret [their hidden counsel, words of darkness]; unto their assembly, my honor, be not you united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their self-will they digged down a wall [by this they brought death on all man, and removed the protection found in the garden].
7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel [speaking of the continual scattering of God’s people into many sects].
8 Judah [the leaders God chooses], you are he whom your brethren shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father’s children shall bow down before you.
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet [speaking of the Davidic king line], until Shiloh come [meaning peace and tranquility – the one {Joseph’s seed – the one separated} from who it will again flow – see Ezekiel 21:27, overturning it until he comes whose right it is]; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine [this speaking the lowly {Zechariah 9:9}, God’s elect remnant, outside the established sects, bound until Shiloh comes, when they are loosed]; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

As we know, the birthright to the throne is in the tribe of Joseph. (1 Chronicles 5:1 Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but forasmuch as he defiled his father’s bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright. 2 For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s:)

Genesis 49
13 Zebulun [the lowly raised up at the LORD’s coming] shall dwell at the haven of the sea [safe from this evil generation]; and he shall be for a haven of ships [and saving any who come to the LORD through them]; and his border shall be unto Zidon [they will be the end of those, the corrupt institutions of church and state, who’ve hunted souls].
14 Issachar [through him will come the reward – the fruitful bough] is a strong ass [the LORD’s people, now become His goodly horse in the battle – Zechariah 10:3] couching down between two burdens:
15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.
16 Dan [the judge – speaking of strength returned and the righteous judgment of the world begins] shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way [as a serpent raised as a standard on a pole {nec}, as the son of man must be lifted], an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels [this is the heel bruised in the judgment, meaning the serpents among the people, are rendered without effect when the corruption they picked up on their journey through time is washed away by these life-giving waters], so that his rider shall fall backward [so the body of Christ will return to the place from which she fell – see, in Isaiah 28:13, what causes them to fall backward, saying “But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.”].
18 (I have waited for your salvation [yshuw’ah – Joshua, Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation manifested in the flesh], O LORD [Jehovah].)
19 Gad [the LORD’s army, overcome until their return to Him], a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.
20 Out of Asher [happy] his bread shall be fat [happiness returns when the word of God prospers], and he shall yield royal dainties [ma’adan – speaking of the royal line again raised up – referring us to its use in Proverbs 29:17, telling us this is when rest returns, when we, by correction, give the Father “delight”].
21 Naphtali [by this wrestling – unknowingly with the LORD] is a hind let loose: he gives goodly words [our tongue {the word of God} is loosed and we teach it as received directly from Him].
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well [a tree of life by these waters, the written word of God]; whose branches run over the wall [the wall of lies men have created and teach]:
23 The archers [ba’al – the gods of this world whose teaching has blinded all from seeing the Father in the son, the seed of the woman who brings forth the man child – see Revelation 12:17, saying “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”] have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
25 Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies under [the deep meaning that lies below the surface], blessings of the breasts, and of the womb [seed, the son]:
26 The blessings of your father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors [all those who have come before us, and were only blessed with part of what is perfected in our return to the LORD] unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
27 Benjamin [the right hand of God’s power, this last generation that becomes the first born of the woman: Rachel] shall ravin as a wolf [shall tear in pieces the wolf that has scattered the one flock]: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. [These last words refer us to Maher-shalal-hash-baz, the son spoken of in beginning Isaiah 8, his name meaning he hastes to the spoil and is quick to the prey. He is the son foretold as coming by the virgin, later called Immanuel, as the advice, teaching, of the LORD comes, when men have formed a confederacy listening to the dead gods of the world.]

Genesis 36
1 Now these are the generations of Esau [from ‘ashoq, ‘ashowq, meaning tyrant and deceiver], who is Edom [the same as ‘adam, both meaning red, which is the origin of the devil’s depicted red color].
2 Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan [nations Israel later conquers and inhabits]; Adah [‘adah {‘ada’} – as used nine times by Daniel, of whose dominion will and will not continue] the daughter of Elon [the mighty] the Hittite [from chathath – who descended into confusion and fear], and Aholibamah [who inhabit the places that have risen over the earth] the daughter of Anah [whose solutions: answers] the daughter of Zibeon [colors – were false divinations, as light divided] the Hivite [and had dominion in all their cities];
3 And Bashemath [fragrance: their perception] Ishmael’s [producing solutions God heard] daughter, sister of Nebajoth [heights – ideas of men {that have dominion as tyrants over other men} that were {are} exalted in the earth].
4 And Adah [whose dominion will not remain] bare to Esau [tyrants and oppressors] Eliphaz [whose god is gold: wealth plundered by deception: false interpretation as justification]; and Bashemath [and this perception: perspective] bare Reuel [dominated in many forms among the people of God, causing endless agitation, strife, and war];
5 And Aholibamah [those who by this means have risen into power over the earth] bare Jeush [those who “hurry to the aid” of others, with this underlying purpose of plunder], and Jaalam [concealed: are their motives therein their false claims of aid], and Korah [ultimately from quwr, meaning he is thrown forth, into this light, morning, to destroy all these traits in leadership now ruling the earth {the fifth kingdom, now led by him, Obama}; Korah meaning bald {removing ideas that have grown from the head} and “ice,” describing all these traits reserved in him, to be taken out of the earth they rules from his place of concealment]: these are the sons of Esau [tyrants and deceivers throughout history], which were born unto him in the land of Canaan [the earth God’s people will now inherit].
6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country [‘erets – the earth at this time] from the face of [paniym – away from the presence of the God manifested with] his brother Jacob.
7 For their riches [their evil ideas and the wealth they accumulated thereby, separating them from God] were more than that they might dwell together; and the land [‘erets – this new earth wherein dwells God’s righteousness] wherein they were strangers [wherein their ideas are far from God’s] could not bear them because of their cattle [miqneh – all the people who choose to remain without the LORD’s Spirit, who they possess and hold in hell].
8 Thus dwelt Esau [the place of tyrants and deceivers is] in mount Seir [se’iyr – the high places that have risen over the old and corrupt earth, where devils possessed by Satan rule]: Esau is Edom [the tyrants and deceivers are devils depicted in red].

Today (3 July 2024), from this point of realization, the LORD takes us to Ezekiel 21, specifically focusing on verse 22. This verse speaks of this moment when choices are being made by those in power, which leads to their overturning and lifting the lowly. This overturning is by the LORD’s sword drawn and furbished, ending the presumptuous ideas created in the minds of the ignorant.

Ezekiel 21
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man [I Am], set your face [paniym – My presence manifested] toward Jerusalem, and drop your word toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land [‘adamah – this corrupted generation of My people] of Israel,
3 And say to the land [‘adamah] of Israel, Thus says the LORD; Behold, I am against you, and will draw forth my sword [this word from My mouth which you refuse to hear and obey] out of his sheath, and will cut off [karath] from you the righteous and the wicked.
4 Seeing then that I will cut off [karath] from you the righteous and the wicked [who men are listening to and obeying in My stead], therefore shall my sword [this word from My mouth] go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south [those looking for this sun rising, the morning: understanding] to the north [those choosing to remain in darkness]:
5 That all flesh may know that I the LORD have drawn forth my sword out of his sheath: it shall not return any more.
6 Sigh therefore, you son of man, with the breaking of your loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes. [Woe to this world and the evil figs, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels {his messengers} were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them {with Me}. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.]
7 And it shall be, when they say unto you, Wherefore sigh you? that you shall answer, For the tidings; because it comes: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it comes, and shall be brought to pass, says the LORD God.

Isaiah 45
19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth [who by choice remain ignorant of My presence]: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek you me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you that are escaped of the nations [those who refuse to know Me]: they have no knowledge that set up the [dead] wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.
21 Tell you, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who has declared [shama’ – where it was first heard and obeyed] this from ancient time [qadem – the first light rising in Eden]? who has told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Savior; there is none beside me.
22 Look unto [panah – turn your heads toward] me, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth [ending the old beginning the new]: for I am God, and there is none else.
23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
24 Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed [not reaching the end they have foretold and sought].
25 In [turning toward] the LORD shall all the seed of Israel [all who enter this promise] be justified, and shall glory.

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 [Hiding the LORD’s presence in him], that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished [the veil of flesh covering His presence manifested in His word, written and spoken]:
14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remains the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ [the son, children, in who He reveals Himself, declared in the same word written and spoken].
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart [minds blinded to His presence therein].
16 Nevertheless when it [all heads] shall turn to [hear and obey] the LORD, the vail shall be taken away.
17 Now the LORD is that Spirit [unknown working until He is realized]: and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty [freeing us from the gods of this world who’ve blinded to this glorious good news all those they possess].
18 But we all, with open face [understanding His presence is manifested in the flesh] beholding as in a glass [mirror] the glory of the LORD, are changed into the same image from [seeing Him is those speaking His word] glory to glory [manifested in us in the same manner], even as by the Spirit of the LORD [working unknown to reveal Himself].

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 [the darkness men have added] of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness [creating images that are not true], nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth [of God in us] commending [suniemi – to exhibit and introduce] ourselves [heautow – Himself] to every man’s conscience [suniedesis – producing the same pure perspective] in the sight [enopion – as the presence] 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 [the LORD is with us, in us working to reveal Himself present], lest the light [this understanding] of the glorious gospel of Christ [the LORD revealing His presence in our flesh by speaking His word as received], who is the [true] image of God, should shine [this co-perspective] unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the LORD; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake [Jehovah’s, the Father’s, Salvation manifested].
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine [the understanding to be sent] out of darkness [from the place where it became hidden, from this word of which men have become ignorant], has shined [is sent as light] in our hearts [into our minds], to give the light [understanding] of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face [the manifested presence] of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure [this gift from the Father] in earthen vessels [our flesh], that the excellency of the power may be [understood to be] of God, and not of us.
8 We are [because we deliver this message as received, while declaring it is His presence manifested with us, in us] 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 also of Jesus [in this resurrection of the dead] might be made manifest in our body.

Ezekiel 21
8 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
9 Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the LORD; Say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished [marat – meaning “to polish; by implication, to make bald (the head), to gall (the shoulder); also, to sharpen”]:
10 It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished that it may glitter: should we then make mirth? it contemns [ma’ac – takes away] the rod [the scepter – to rule] of my son[s], as every tree [the righteous and the wicked].
11 And he has given it to be furbished, that it may be handled: this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished, to give it into the hand of the slayer [harag – as Gideon, the hewer of the mighty, as at the rock of Oreb: from where darkness flowed].
12 Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be upon my people, it shall be upon all the princes of Israel: terrors by reason of the sword shall be upon my people: smite therefore upon your thigh.
13 Because it is a trial, and what if the sword [this word as fire from My mouth] contemn [ma’ac – takes away] even the rod [the scepter – to rule]? it shall be no more, says the LORD God. [See verse 26 & 27 below]
14 You therefore, son of man, prophesy, and smite your hands together. and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great men [the powers who’ve led the earth into hell] that are slain, which entered [as did Jael – Judges 4:21] into their privy chambers [chadar].
15 I have set the point of the sword against all their gates [holding humanity in hell], that their heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up [ma’ot – only used here, from ma’at, meaning to pare off, as in shaving the head to make it bald] for the slaughter.
16 Go you one way or other, either on the right hand, or on the left, whithersoever your face [My presence] is set [ya’ad – as two baskets of figs at this appointed time, “the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.”].
17 I will also smite my hands together, and I will cause my fury to rest: I the LORD have said it.

The word ya’ad only appears this once in Ezekiel and three other times in Jeremiah, after it appears in Jeremiah 24:1, speaking of where the evil and good figs are “set.”

Jeremiah 47
1 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines [the invading army among us], before that Pharaoh [the tyrants now oppressing God’s people] smote Gaza [from ‘az, the word used in Genesis 49:3 above to describe Reuben’s “power,” speaking of the sons of perdition, false prophets and false teachers, who put themselves the Father’s place].
2 Thus says the LORD; Behold, waters [words of tyrants and false prophets] rise up out of the north [darkness: ignorance], and shall be an overflowing flood, and shall overflow the land, and all that is therein; the city, and them that dwell therein: then the men shall cry, and all the inhabitants of the land shall howl.
3 At the noise [qowl – the voices of these men] of the stamping of the hoofs of his strong horses, at the rushing of his chariots [carrying them into this battle of which they are ignorant], and at the rumbling of his wheels [galgal – the wheels Ezekiel saw, which are the word of God sent forward in time, understanding held therein, sent to give understanding, in which process is the unfold of the LORD’s manifested presence], the fathers [who sent the word] shall not look back [panah – shall not turn their heads, their minds’ understanding] to their children for feebleness of hands [because they refuse to receive it as the work of the LORD];
4 Because of the day [this time of light] that comes to spoil all the Philistines [the invading army among us, who deny the LORD’s presence], and to cut off [karath] from Tyrus [the false rock: the false church] and Zidon [who hunt souls and carry them away into hell] every helper [helping in this evil] that remains: for the LORD will spoil the Philistines [the spoilers], the remnant of the country of Caphtor [the crown – the spiritually wicked sitting in seats of power over the earth].
5 Baldness [removing their ideas from the head, places of leadership] is come upon Gaza [the false prophets and false teachers]; Ashkelon [the infamous, in this trial in these fires] is cut off [damah – are silenced and destroyed] with [from] the remnant of their valley [the lowly]: how long will you cut yourself [gadal – how long will you assemble yourselves as an army against the LORD and His people]?
6 [And the ignorant say] O you sword of the LORD [this word of the LORD they refuse], how long will it be ere you be quiet? put up yourself into your scabbard [ta’ar – put Your razor into its sheath], rest, and be still [damam – be silent].
7 How can it be quiet, seeing the LORD has given it a charge against Ashkelon [the infamous], and against the sea shore [this place humanity has reached, at the swelling of Jordan, where the proud words of the dead are stopped]? there has he appointed [ya’ad] it.

Jeremiah 49
14 I have heard a rumor [shmuw’ah – heard the voice] from the LORD, and [with the word heard as the LORD’s] an ambassador [tsiyr – upon whose words heads turn] is sent unto the heathen [God’s people who haven’t known Him], saying, Gather you together, and come against her [Bozrah – the fortress, tyrany and deception, of Edom], and rise up to the battle.
15 For, lo, I will make you small [of little power] among the heathen [My ignorant people who haven’t known Me], and despised among men [‘adam – the people I Am creating].
16 Your terribleness [your fear of the heathen, the men who despise you] has deceived you, and the pride of your heart [your pride in your power to deceive], O you that dwell in the clefts of the rock [your fortress, from where your deceptions flow], that hold the height of the hill [the high places, Seir, risen over the earth]: though you should make your nest as high as the eagle [saying you are risen there by your understanding], I will bring you down from there, says the LORD.
17 Also Edom shall be a desolation: every one that goes by it shall be astonished [at your ignorance and deception revealed], and shall hiss at [drawing the world’s attention to] all the plagues thereof.
18 As in the overthrow of Sodom [in flames] and Gomorrah [a perpetual ruin] and the neighbor cities thereof, says the LORD, no man shall abide there, neither shall a son of man dwell in it.
19 Behold, he [the LORD] shall come up like a lion [roaring] from the swelling of Jordan [against those swelled with pride in their words that carried all the world in its descent into death] against the habitation of the strong [the spiritually wicked sitting in power over the earth]: but I will suddenly make him [the wicked] run away from her [My people when I have given them the strength of this understanding]: and who is [declared by Me] a chosen man, that I may appoint [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the earth] over her [My people]? for who is like me [and stands with Me against evil]? and who will appoint [ya’ad] me the time? and who is that shepherd [ra’ah – seeing as I see] that will stand [‘amad] before me [paniym – as My presence manifested]?
20 Therefore hear [shama’ – and obey] the counsel of the LORD, that he has taken against Edom; and his purposes, that he has purposed against the inhabitants of Teman [the place where understanding should be found, but isn’t, and instead devils reside therein]: Surely the least of the flock [I Am, without any worldly power] shall draw them out [into the light]: surely he shall make their [the devils’ in power] habitations [hell] desolate with them.
21 The earth [‘erets] is moved [ra’ash – bringing the dead bones of the ONE BODY together, when men, knowing words are the way into heaven or hell, are cautious about whose words they listen to and obey] at the noise [qowl – the voice of Jehovah heard as His voice] of their fall [shaking the wicked from His new earth], at the cry the noise [qowl – the voices] thereof was [when the Egyptians were overflowed] heard in the Red sea [at their destruction].

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 [New] Heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels [the LORD’s messengers speaking the words He’s given],
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written 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 earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven:
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 [receive this gift spoken], whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Micah 6
1 Hear [shama’ – and obey] you now what the LORD says; Arise, contend [riyb – with My word] you before the mountains [the power of this corrupt world], and let the hills hear your voice.
2 Hear [shama’ – and obey] you, O mountains [governments of the world in church and state], the LORD’s controversy [riyb], and you strong [corrupt] foundations of the earth: for the LORD has a controversy [riyb] with his people, and he will plead with [yakach – meaning “to be right (i.e. correct); reciprocal, to argue; causatively, to decide, justify or convict”] Israel.
3 O my people [whose inheritance is as I promised], what have I done unto you? and wherein have I wearied you? testify against me.
4 For I brought you up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of servants; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim [when he decided {bowed} to speak only the words God put in his mouth] unto Gilgal [when the LORD turned the curse of the enemies into a blessing]; that you may know the righteousness of the LORD.
6 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself [kaphaph] before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? [Hosea 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take {correct} away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.]
7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8 He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require [darash] of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
9 The LORD’s voice cries unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see your name [the LORD’s identity alive in me, in us]: hear [shama’ – obey] you the rod [of correction from His mouth], and who has appointed [ya’ad] it.
10 Are there yet the treasures [ideas and words they falsely claim have value] of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable?
11 Shall I count them [their abomination they put in place of the holy] pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of [their] deceitful weights?
12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13 Therefore also will I make you sick in smiting you, in making you desolate because of your sins.
14 You shall eat [choosing their words over this word from the mouth of God], but not be satisfied [never saying it’s enough – ever learning and never coming to the knowledge of God with us]; and your casting down shall be in the midst of you; and you [your false words of salvation] shall take hold, but shall not deliver [not save anyone that obeys them]; and that which you [say you will thereby] deliver will I give up to the sword [this word of God they refuse, when what I have warned against comes, by your choice].
15 You shall sow, but you shall not reap; you shall tread the olives, but you shall not anoint you with oil; and sweet wine, but shall not drink wine.
16 For the statutes of Omri are kept [1 Kings 16:25 But Omri wrought evil in the eyes of the LORD, and did worse than all that were before him], and all the works of the house of Ahab, and you walk in their counsels; that I should make you a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof a hissing [drawing attention to them and their chosen self-destruction]: therefore you shall bear the reproach [cherpah] of my people [that do choose Me].

Jeremiah 50
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 is his name: he shall thoroughly plead [riyb] their cause [riyb], that he may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.
35 A sword is upon [this word of God is against] the Chaldeans [who’ve used their deceptive words to manipulate and control humanity into death and hell], says the LORD, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon [the confusion that ruled the world into insanity], and upon her princes, and upon her wise men.
36 A sword is upon [this word of God is against] the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon [this word of God is against] her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.
37 A sword is upon [this word of God is against their army] their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people [an enemy army] that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword [the words of the enemy] is upon her treasures [corrupting this understanding]; and they shall be robbed.
38 A drought [for hearing this word of God, and truth in general] is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images [creations of men, opinions replacing truth, delusions they can’t tell from reality], and they are mad [insane] upon their idols.
39 Therefore the wild beasts [those without My Spirit] of the desert with the wild beasts [those without My Spirit] of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls [who hunt the souls of the ignorant] shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited forever; neither shall it be dwelt in from [the old, corrupt, and evil] generation to [the new] generation [I Am creating].
40 As God overthrew Sodom [in flames] and Gomorrah [ruin] and the neighbor cities thereof, says the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein [the old and corrupt].
41 Behold, a people shall come from the north [out of darkness], and a great nation [that hasn’t known Me], and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts [ends] of the earth.
42 They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel [‘akzariy – brave], and will not show mercy [to those who haven’t shown mercy, who observe lying vanities]: their voice shall roar like the sea [against the swelling of Jordan], and they shall ride upon horses, every one put in [battle] array, like a [ONE] man to the battle, against you, O daughter of Babylon.
43 The king of Babylon has heard [shama’] the report [shema’] of them [the voice of the LORD heard from His people who obey His commands and prevail], and his [the king of confusion – Obama and his idiot son Brandon] hands waxed feeble: anguish took hold of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail [now understanding what, a man born again, they brought forth].
44 Behold, he [the LORD] shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan unto the habitation of the strong: but I will make them suddenly run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint [ya’ad] me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me?
45 Therefore hear [shama’ – and obey] 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 [I Am] shall draw them out [into this light]: surely he shall make their habitation desolate with them.
46 At the noise [His voice] of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved [ra’ash – shaken], and the cry is heard [shama’ – is obeyed] among the nations [those who haven’t known Him until now].

Ezekiel 21
18 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,
19 Also, you son of man, appoint you two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come: both twain shall come forth out of one land: and choose you a place, choose it at the head of the way to the city.
20 Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites [this word upon the great men of the old world, who exalt themselves above God], and to Judah in [New Heavenly] Jerusalem the defenced [where God’s elect are protected in peace].
21 For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use [qacam] divination [qecem]: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images [men created], he looked in the liver [the dark sentences of evil].
22 At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint [evil] captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates [of New Heavenly Jerusalem], to cast a mount, and to build a fort.
23 And it shall be unto them as a false divination [qacam] in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths [shbuw’ah]: but he will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
24 Therefore thus says the LORD God; Because you have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered [your sins unsealed], so that in all your doings your sins do appear [ra’ah – are in open sight]; because, I say, that you are come to remembrance, you shall be taken with the hand.
25 And you, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end [qets],
26 Thus says the LORD God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.
27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he [Shiloh, who is the shepherd and stone] come whose right it is [the seed of Joseph]; and I will give it him.
28 And you, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus says the LORD God concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say you, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering [baraq – the lightning from it]:
29 While they see vanity [worthlessness] unto you, while they divine [qacam] a lie unto you, to bring you upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end [qets].
30 Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge you in the place where you were created, in the land of your nativity.
31 And I will pour out my indignation [za’am] upon you, I will blow against you in the fire of my wrath, and deliver you into the hand of brutish men, and skillful to destroy.
32 You shall be for fuel to the fire; your blood shall be in the midst of the land; you shall be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.

Psalms 42
A Maschil [an instruction] to the sons of Korah [the bald]
1 As the hart pant after the water brooks, so pants my soul after you, O God [for Your word].
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear [ra’ah – be seen] before [paniym – in the presence of] God?
3 My tears have been my meat [My sorrow is the deep meaning You have given me through Your word and leading] day and night [giving understanding of the treasure held there in ignorance], while they [those remaining in darkness] continually say unto me, Where is your God [not realizing Your presence is manifested herein]?
4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me [giving Your word as you have given it]: for I had [before] gone with the multitude [in ignorance], I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise [making you presence known], with a multitude that kept holyday [chagag – this promised feast day: this time of light given from heaven, the word from the mouth of God, by which man lives].
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted in me? hope you in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help [yshuw’ah – Jesus, His, Jehovah’s, Salvation manifested in me] of his countenance [paniym – revealing His presence].
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember [zakar] you from the land [‘erets – the earth] of Jordan [carried by the words of the dead in the descent into death], and of the Hermonites [of Your sanctuary that is the Highest], from the hill Mizar [and purity seen there, upon which men put little value].
7 [From Your Highness] Deep [your understanding of this held in darkness] calls unto deep [these treasures from there revealed] at the noise [qowl – Your voice heard] of your waterspouts [the channel through which Your words come from heaven to earth]: all your waves [of water and light – in writing and through the aether] and your billows are gone over me.
8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time [of light, when understanding covers the earth], and in the night [when the earth is void of understanding] his song [His word repeated as received] shall be with me, and my prayer [conversation] unto the God of my life.
9 I will say unto God my rock [from whom this word flows], Why have you forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
10 As with a sword in my bones, my enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is your God?
11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope you in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health [yshuw’ah] of my countenance [paniym – Jesus present with me, alive in Me], and my [ONE] God.

Psalms 47
1 O clap your hands, all you people; shout unto God with the voice of [His and our] triumph.
2 For the LORD Most High is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
5 God is gone up with a shout [of His archangel, I Am], the LORD with [His voice as] the sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing [these songs of] praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth: sing you praises with [His] understanding.
8 God reigns over the heathen: God sits upon the throne of his holiness.
9 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
