2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.



But YHVH Meant It Unto Good

Genesis 50:15-23

And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them. And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years. And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's knees.

While Abraham, Isaac and Jacob dwelled in Canaan though the land was promised to them as an inheritance they had not owned it or possessed it until after their descendants came forth out of Egypt and conquered Canaan. During the days of the patriarchs they only sojourned in the land of Canaan. In order to inherit the land they had to leave it.

Thus there was a time when YHVH allowed His people to dwell outside of the land after having sojourned there to “…save much people alive.” He also could not bring judgment to a people whose sins were yet in their seed which had not yet come forth. So says YHVH in Ezekiel 18:20, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.” The iniquity of the Amorites was not yet full.

Joseph was cruelly sold into slavery weeping and wailing all along the way to Egypt in fear and disbelief of what was happening to him. He had no idea that YHVH had a hand in the direction his life was taking.

Genesis 15:13-14

And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

It was already prophesied to Abraham that his descendants would serve another nation “…and afterwards they come out with great substance.” First they had to go to the other nation, that being Egypt, before they could come out of it.

Had the seventy souls stayed in Canaan they would have either died from the famine or their seed would have been polluted as the Canaanites were polluting themselves during those two hundred plus years when the Israelites were in Egypt.

Genesis 15:16

But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

In this text YHVH is telling Abraham that the fullness of the iniquity of the Amorites was not yet to that point warranting absolute judgment. The word ‘iniquity’ is the Hebrew word ‘avon’ which means perversity, moral evil, mischief. YHVH said that the perversity was not yet completed. In other words, YHVH does not judge before the time. The Amorites and Canaanites had to fully complete their perversity or else YHVH would have judged them for something they did not do but would have done.

What was it that the Amorites and Canaanites were doing in the land that was so perverse that YHVH did not want His people exposed to? It was the corruption of their DNA, their seed.

Numbers 13:13

And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

During the Israelites years in Egypt the Amorites, the people of the land of Canaan, were changing themselves from one kind into another kind.
YHVH took Israel out of the land first to save them from famine and secondly to preserve their DNA. It is the same ancient plot of the enemy to corrupt the DNA of the chosen bloodline so the Messiah could not come. This is why YHVH destroyed everything living in Genesis 6 in the flood and saved Noah a perfect man in his generation and his sons and their wives. The word ‘perfect’ in Hebrew is the word ‘tamiym’ which means without blemish. Noah was not polluted with fallen angelic DNA – he was 100% human. YHVH repopulates the earth again using Noah and his son’s pure human DNA thus Messiah’s bloodline was intact.

NOTE: There is a false doctrine that teaches that Cain is the son of Satan and Eve but you only need to read Genesis 4:1-2 to know that Cain is the son of Adam and Eve. “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.” Remember that The Torah, The Law, The Pentateuch is Elohim’s spoken WORD and Moses wrote exactly as YHVH spoke. There is no error in these words PERIOD. YHVH said these words to Cain in Genesis 4:7, “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.” Cain was a man born of Adam and Eve and sin lieth crouching at his door, his heart, his mind trying to corrupt him. All he had to do was to resist it, have dominion over it. There was nothing wrong with Cain’s DNA only his heart. This false doctrine wants us to believe that among the seed of men there is a bloodline of Cain that created the races of giants. Genesis 4:26 tells us when the human race began to turn from YHVH. “And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.” The words “began men” is ‘chalal’ which means to profane, defile, pollute, desecrate. The people began to desecrate the name of YHVH is the right rendering of this text. Genesis 6 tells us that the sons of God came down and mingled with the daughters of men and so there were giants in the land due to the mingling of their DNA. A new gene pool enters in. One thing followed another, first men desecrated the name of YHVH and then the angels descended. This is why YHVH destroyed the entire old world. We see this happening again today with introduction of GMOs and gene splicing and new breeds of animals like ligers and zonkeys, and even cloning etc. After the flood we know that Nimrod as written in Genesis 10 did something to alter himself. By Genesis 36 we have Anah finding mules in the wilderness. “The exact origin of the first mule is unknown, but we do know that the mule was deliberately bred by man in ancient times. The breeding of a jackass (male donkey) with a female horse (mare) is the most common and oldest known manmade hybrid.” http://www.columbiadailyherald.com/article/20120328/LIFESTYLE/303289941 Any introduction of new DNA did not come from Cain but from the fallen angels. By the time the Israelites came out of Egypt giants were the new normal in Canaan. I believe the Amorites being that close to the flood began to do what we do today, excavating to harvest DNA from the decomposed bodies of the flood. You only need to read science magazines and see that scientist is harvesting minuscule amounts of DNA from eons ago to recreate or reintroduce polluted DNA. The movie Jurassic Park should tell you something. People would accept a faulty Cain DNA over the DNA of fallen angels and demons. They want you to buy the lie by making it more human in nature. Remember what Genesis 3:15 states, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Genesis chapters 1 through 5 speaks about her seed and Genesis 6 is Satan’s seed. Daniel 2:43 tells us “And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” Daniel prophesied that the mingling of the iron, angelic DNA, will not cleave with the miry clay, human DNA in the end times. They will, are trying, but it will not cleave. Is this why we have reports of alien abductions and reports of impregnations and stealing of eggs from women who have been abducted? These are not aliens but fallen angels, demons trying to bring back their golden age. Remember in Daniel 2 the prophecy about the image, the head of gold, the arms and breast of silver, the belly and thighs of brass, the legs of iron and finally the feet mixed with iron and clay. This is the final kingdom before the end of days. When this fifth kingdom ends, the seed of the angels and man will be judged. Daniel 2:44 “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” This age, the fifth, will end when Yeshua returns again to rule and reign for 1000 years, this will be the sixth kingdom. After this 1000 year period, 6th kingdom age, then the last battle as recorded in Revelation 20 will put an end to Satan and all the unrighteous. YHVH will set up His kingdom for all eternity. There will be no more firmament; His kingdom will come on earth as it is in heaven. This will be the beginning of the 7th and eternal age – our eternal Sabbath.

The Amorites in the land was altering their gene pool, their DNA was becoming polluted. This is what YHVH spared Jacob and His descendants from by sending them into Egypt. The famine was the catalyst to get them out, but Joseph had already gone down “… to save much people alive….” YHVH sent the famine which He warned Pharaoh about so that Israel will have reason to leave the land of Canaan and thus their lives would be saved and DNA unpolluted.

Sometimes we can’t see why certain things are happening and we blame YHVH for the worst of things not knowing He has orchestrated it. Why? Who wants to willingly abandon all they have worked for and established to escape a prophesied disaster especially if they don’t see it coming? We do not want to believe that in leaving everything behind we are saving our lives though our experiences might be difficult and the material loss is great. YHVH is able to restore the years the locust stole, and all the gold and silver is His and thus He can restore. Indeed, the latter shall be better than the former if we only obey and let go.

Archaeologists found that many inhabitants of Pompeii were buried alive holding onto their precious things. They had time to escape but instead returned to get what they could. These bodies were buried under layers of volcanic ash preserving their bodies and the items they were holding onto.

Remember the holocaust, many were warned that it was coming but they did not want to abandon their wealth and possessions to leave Europe and escape the evil of Hitler’s regime so they perished. Many were stripped of their jewels and money when they arrived in the concentration camps having their wealth sewn into their clothes.

Even in this modern age we see many who put their lives in danger riding out floods, hurricanes, storms, fires and other natural disasters hoping to save what material things they have. They have no clue that what YHVH allows to happen might be to save their lives from something worst.

It was this way with Israel and thus for over two hundred years they served Egypt. But when they came out they came with all the wealth of the land.

I think of Darfur and how the Arabs stole the land of those that might very well be True Israelites and drove them south and scattered them further throughout the nations of the earth as refugees. How devastating this has been but can it be that in modern times YHVH is moving His people out of harm’s way? Can it be that when the people lack wise men in the land, where there are no prophets and no sons of Issachar to tell them what to do that YHVH must take other measures to move His people out?

NOTE: How did Japheth enter the tents of Shem? (Read commentaries: True Israel – Not Wiped out, Not Replaced, Not Forgotten; Not Out of the Ashes But Out Of The Nations; The Ashkenazi Thread, etc. on catchthewaveministries.wordpress.com Blog) First they had to convert to Judaism and then suffer in some ways as True Israelites so that they and others would believe they are Israelites. Look how much time passed before their settled in The Land. The past had to be forgotten so that they believe the lie. Only time could bring all this to pass. Then they having no other place to turn to they ran to The Land thinking they have a right to it. It had to be so.

Genesis 9:27

God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Enlarge – ‘pathah’ meaning to open, make roomy, to be spacious, also mean in a sinister way delude, allure, deceive, entice, flatter, persuade

Dwell – ‘shakan’ the idea of lodging, to reside, permanently stay, abide, have habitation, set up, to settle down to abide, establish

Tents – ‘ohel’ a tent (as clearly conspicuous from a distance) covering, dwelling, tabernacle, nomad’s tent and thus symbolic of wilderness life, transience

Japheth will be enlarged, deceived, deluded and allured into thinking they are true Israelites and they are not. Japheth will dwell, settle in the land that belongs to Shem and shall convert to Shem’s faith that being Abraham’s faith in YHVH thus dwelling in Shem’s tabernacle.

Genesis 10:2-5

The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

All these things had to come to pass for the word of YHVH to be fulfilled.

Here in Genesis 10:3 we read that Ashkenaz is of the Gentiles.
True Israelites have also forgotten their history. Not only have they forgotten who they are but if you take a close look at the description of Israel scattered in the nations you will know who they are. Read Deuteronomy 28. Since True Israel will not be gathered in until Yeshua returns we know that they are in the midst of the curses not the blessings. Thus we must identify them by the descriptions of the curses.

Joseph was the one who suffered for years so that when the appointed time came he would be in position to enter the palace. He had no idea until the famine came that YHVH’s intention was for him to save his people. When Jacob died Joseph told his brothers this much. “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”

There is a reason why an African American is in the British palace. It was under that kingdom that True Israel was enslaved. The scepter will be extended to her.

The Arabs thought it evil against the Darfurians but YHVH surely meant it for good. The coming battle is not for True Israel to fight but for those settlers in the land. YHVH is moving His people out of the way. I am sure that an atomic weapon will be used to annihilate the nations that come against Jerusalem. The after effects will be far-reaching.

Zachariah 14:12-13

And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

This plague that comes upon the nations that fought (Note: fought in Hebrew is ‘tsaba’ to mass an army) against Jerusalem is a description of what happens when an atomic bomb is used. We have records of this from Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Chernobyl. The flesh consuming away literally means to melt away. Even the deformities will flourish during those days. Israel cannot approach YHVH if they are lame and diseased.

YHVH is removing His people far from the destruction of the battle of the nations that will come up against Jerusalem. Who shall believe this report? The refugees that are currently in The Land who are being forced out, surely this action is not meant by YHVH for evil against them. Surely it is for to save their lives. Even the current government there is offering them a good deal of money to leave and this is like in the days of Egypt when the Egyptians gave the Israelites their wealth to leave the land.

Yes, I am saying take it and leave. Make good of it when you go to the place YHVH will send you to. Don’t squander it. Use it to get an education, to build schools and hospitals and businesses that will support you and your fellow refugees while you wait in strange lands until the fulfillment of prophesy.

Perhaps this message is for those settlers in The Land that has found Messiah and knows the truth and desires to live and not die. Perhaps they will heed the warning and make ready to leave. The word is not just for True Israel but also for anyone that come to Messiah through faith – the church. You can either leave now fleeing the judgment to come or you can stay and be caught in the middle. History has a way of repeating.

Ezekiel 38:18-23

And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

This is what those who remain in the land will be caught up in. Who will believe this report? The judgment to come will be far reaching. The host of Gog and Magog and all the nations that come up against Jerusalem will be spread far and wide. There will be millions who will lose their lives. The blast from the destruction to come will reach far into the adjoining nations. The radiation affects will be far reaching. It will affect both the people that fought against Jerusalem and their animals which are in their encampments.

Zechariah 14:12

And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Zechariah 14:15

And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.

It is this destruction and after affects YHVH’s is shielding His people from by keeping them in far countries.

NOTE: This is not the last battle on earth. This is the battle of the nations against Jerusalem. Gog and Magog are the kingdoms of men – these are the ancient human kingdoms mentioned in the Bible that will rise again. This battle will occur at the end of the great tribulation and then Messiah will return to rule and reign for 1000 years. During this time Satan will be bound. At the end of the 1000 year Satan will be loose and he will gather Gog and Magog which now will be the kingdoms of the fallen angels and some men will rally with them. This will be the last battle and in this case fire and brimstone will rain down from heaven and destroy them all. I am working on this commentary based on the last battle. Read Revelation 20.

Go back and read the commentary entitled Stop Looking at Man and Read the Bible to know what to do when this devastation comes whatever it might be.

Exodus 12:13

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Just as the Israelites were shielded during the last plague in Egypt by putting the blood of the sacrifice lamb upon the door post the church will also be spared if they apply the blood of Yeshua upon their hearts. As it was in the beginning so shall to be in the end. As death passed over the Israelites abode then so will it pass over the dwelling of every believer in that time to come. This goes for Jew and Gentile alike who comes to Yeshua by faith. Yeshua is the light of the world and it is by His light that we trim our lamps – He is the way, the truth and the life.

So what will happen to those True Israelites who live through the battle of the nations but did not believe Yeshua to be their Messiah?

Zechariah 10:8-10

I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them: and they shall increase as they have increased. And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again. I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them.

Read this passage with the definitions below and see that YHVH will signal to His people in far off countries so they will remember who they are. He will show them that they were kept there to be preserved. While they are in those far off countries they are to continue to live and to multiply. When they receive the signal they will remember who they are and turn again with their children back to YHVH. This does not happen in The Land but in far off countries where YHVH has placed them to preserve their lives.

Hiss – sharaq, to whistle (as a call, as a signal)

Gather – qabats, to grasp, collect, assemble

Redeem – padah, to sever, ransom, preserve, deliver

Increase – rabah, abundance, enlarge, become many

Sow – zera, to disseminate, plant, scatter sow, to become pregnant

People – a people, nation

Remember – zakar, to mark (so as to be recognized), recall, to be brought to remembrance

Far countries – merchaq, remoteness, a distant place, from afar

Live- chayah, keep alive, remain alive

Children – ben, son, grandson, child, member of a group

Turn again- shuwb, to turn back, the idea of return to the starting point, come or go back to

Who will believe this report?

YHVH will call for them from out of the nations; they will hear, recognize His call and they will respond. They will turn back to YHVH whom they despised and forsook. They will remember who they are and why they were scattered. They will come with their children out of the land of Egypt. Egypt is the continent of Africa and a metaphor for how Egypt treated them when they were slaves there. Assyria is that nation that first scattered the northern kingdom into all its conquered lands. Not only did Assyria take the people out of the land of their inheritance but they assimilated them into the people groups of its empire.

You recall how the Samaritans came to be. These were true Israelites that remained in the land after Assyria took them captive. The Assyrian empire then took others from other parts of its empire and intermixed them with the Jews left in the land and they inter mingled – half Jew half Gentile.

This is what Assyria did to the True Israelites throughout its empire. This is why Yeshua found a need to go to Samaria and preach the gospel to the woman at the well. Not one grain will fall to the earth. If you look at the migration of people in Africa you will see that they began from the Edge of the Assyrian Empire and migrated westward and southward throughout all of Africa. This migration would still preserve a purebred Israelite race in Africa. Those that migrated throughout what would become the Babylonia and Persian Empire would have been deposited in groups that would have allowed them to maintain their racial identity.

The Assyrians mingled or scattered abroad the seeds of captivity if you will. There is no better way to hide something than among a similar kind. The Babylonians and Persian displaced the populations to another place intact. YHVH says He will hiss for his people who will recognize the sound of His whistle and they will respond and return. He said that not one grain will fall to the earth. Those that remain intact as a people’s group will be gathered and those that were intermingled, even if it is one drop of DNA remaining, they will hear and respond. The woman at the well was a grain. Thus from Africa to Assyria they will come. Remember that the Babylonian captives were allowed to return after seventy years. Not all returned but the remnant will be gathered back during the time of Yeshua’s reign.

The stage is being set but how long it will take no one knows. Even Yeshua said not even the angels in heaven knows the time of His return. But we know that at the end of the seven years appointed for the tribulation He will come again. Yeshua also said that the time will be shortened for the sake of His elect, True Israel. We can gather from this report that when that time comes it will happen without warning - suddenly. As in Noah’s days the flood came and no one believed his report that it was coming until the doors of the Ark were shut.

Noah preached 120 years before the flood came. Joseph was in Egypt 12 years before he was called before Pharaoh and another seven years during the years of plenty. Esther was in position 5 years before her ‘such a time as this.” Daniel was two years before his first “such a time as this.”

How long will you take before positioning yourself to be saved? Yeshua said suddenly. Who will be caught behind the lines with no way of escape?

Matthew 24:15-22

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Yes, many will be caught off guard. Yeshua tells us what sign to look for to know when the time is upon us. He speaks about the Sabbath and the winter both times signifying times of preparation. No one can work on the Sabbath so they must prepare beforehand. Even the animals prepare for the winter months by gathering their food ahead of the time. Who will believe this report? Who will make ready? “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.” Suddenly and in rapid succession!

We also know that for the battle of the nations to happen all nations on the earth must be united. There will be no dictators or republics or monarchies that will be left out. All will be engaged in this battle. Zachariah 14:16 tells us, “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.” The world will become united and every stronghold must come down. It is no strange thing that North Korea is seeking inclusion. All the nations of the earth will be one in this battle against Jerusalem. Resources will be pooled and some great cataclysmic or disaster will occur to unite all nations against Jerusalem. Who knows what maybe Israel will unleash upon the world in anticipation of defending its self and bringing about this battle. Remember, the inhabitants of the land are not True Israelites, they have been deceived to believe they are and that the world is against them and that they must defend themselves. The church has added to this deception telling Israel, the people that have settled the land, that they have a right to defend themselves. YHVH told Israel that He will fight for her, not by might nor by Israel’s power but by YHVH’s Spirit. The battle is the LORD’s.

The church not knowing the truth has a hand it bringing all this to pass. The church is pressuring Israel to defend its self at all cost. The church is raising millions of dollars in support of this people in the land to build homes and infrastructure being also deceived. This deception comes for the lack of knowledge in the seminaries. The church has convinced this people that they can win at all cost because YHVH is on their side so they declare and decree over the people who have settled in the land as Jews and are not. This will cause the world to persecute the church. Many are putting million into Israel’s military and security systems. They are of the synagogue of Satan because they are following his agenda. They church thinks it is doing YHVH a favor.

This is a report for the church and for True Israel. Who will believe it? We are living in the days of sophisticated technology and think that we can survive anything including death. But something will happen to darken the sun and cause the moon to cease from giving light. Technology will fail and so we will have to revert back to horses and chariots.

Joel 3:9-12

Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

Humanity will revert back to antiquated weapons because something will hinder or block their sophisticated technology from working. Something significant will happen in Jerusalem that will cause most of the nations to assemble themselves against Jerusalem and those that dwell in the land. Israel is the most technologically advanced nations in the world. It has security systems in place that we cannot even imagine. This battle is not about oil but about something else that will have an enormous impact on the earth. Too much power in one hand is much too much. Israel has a great deal of power, enough to cause others to fear whether that fear is real or not.

These things must come to pass because YHVH spoke them to the prophets and they recorded them as something that will happen in the future. It will come to pass.

Numbers 23:19

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Isaiah 14:27

For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

Isaiah 55:11

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Yes, these things will happen because YHVH declares them to be so. Thus we know that he does nothing without first telling His prophets. What is happening to True Israel now is so that YHVH can preserve them. It is not meant for evil. Let YHVH preserve you. Even for the church this is the time of warning to get right and turn again back to Messiah.

Nothing is happening that is not meant to happen. YHVH is signaling for the church and True Israel to get out of harm’s way. YHVH is also hissing, signaling to us to make ready. True Israel has endured this long, but just a while longer and we shall see the mighty hands of YHVH on behalf of His people and the church of Yeshua.

These are the years of sifting the wheat which is the church. The church is on the threshing floor. Let YHVH remove the chaff and the leaven. Let Him purge you through the fire so that you will be purified. Even to those that are of the house of Japheth who have found Messiah, come out from amongst them. Revelation 2:9b says, “…and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Heed the warning!

There is truth in the word of YHVH. Japheth is in the land because they have a part to play.

Read the message from Messiah to the seven churches in Revelations 2-3. These are all signs of the churches in the end times. A remnant will come from both the church and True Israel. The works of the seven churches will be evident in the last days.

May the Holy Spirit open your eyes and give you understanding. If you don’t care to prepare yourselves then at least do it for your children and children’s children. We do not know which generation will see these prophecies come to pass. Remember Daniel’s prophecies were shut up for a time.

Daniel 12:5-12

Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

How long has it been since Daniel penned these words? This shall not happen until YHVH has “accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people.” In other words, not until True Israel cease from moving about in the earth scattered as refugees, fleeing the atrocities of nations. As much as the gospel must be spread throughout the ends of the earth before the end comes so must we look to the conclusion of True Israel being scattered yet staying put where they are among the nations.

Both the fullness of the Gentiles as spoken of in Romans 11:25 and the end of True Israel being scattered as spoken of in Daniel 12:7b will occur at the same time. Following this we will see Daniel’s prophecy of the “abomination that maketh desolate” and from that point marks the beginning of the last three and a half years of the great tribulation that will culminate with the battle of the nations against Jerusalem.

Babylon will be destroyed and Messiah will return with His chosen 144,000 and the saints which are the church will be included. Those that have been purified and turn to Yeshua who remain alive when Messiah returns will be caught up with Him. They will return with Messiah to establish His 1000 year kingdom on the earth. You can read more in-depth studies about this in the commentary entitled ‘How The Remnant Shall Return’, ‘The 144,000 Redeemed Israelites’ and other commentaries posted on the blog: catchthewaveministries.wordpress.com

What is happening to True Israel still at this current time is not meant for evil but for their good. YHVH will bless those that bless True Israel and curse those that cruse True Israel. Surely, those who recognize who True Israel is and help her will be blessed but those who continue to oppress YHVH’s people will receive due judgment upon their own heads.

Isaiah 16:3-4

Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; betray not him that wandereth. Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.

Yes, YHVH has hidden His children, His people, True Israel among the heathens and He bids them to hid His outcast, those that wander from nation to nation, He bids them, counsels them, to let the remnant of True Israel dwell with them. He tells them to be covert, hide them, and keep them in secrecy from the face of those that will destroy them. This is true for any nation or people who will not betray those who are True Israelites hidden within in their nations.

The Moabites were the cousins of Israel being descendants of Lot’s sons. So YHVH tells the next of kin not to betray His people. If True Israel has assimilated in your society then YHVH is saying don’t betray them as we see happening today. Discrimination of True Israel is rampant in our world today.

The good that is done for True Israel might be paid forward at such a time as you know not when. What I know is that you know what it is that you are doing to oppress these people in your land; you know your discrimination and your acts of willful disregard for their humanity. You know the squalor you have forced them to dwell in and you know the quality of life you have denied them. You also know the proverbs you speak against them.

True Israel is hidden away for their own good, for to save their lives so that at the return of Yeshua they might be gathered in. YHVH will deal with each nation, people and individuals that harasses His People while they were in The Land and in the nations. “LET MINE OUTCAST DWELL WITH THEE.”

Once I was blind but now I see.

Let me encourage you to study the word:

Deuteronomy 29:29

The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

I Chronicles 12:32

And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.

Acts 17:10-11

And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Reading the word is not enough but you must give yourself over to studying the word for wisdom and understanding. How will you know what the truth is when it is presented to you if you do not study? Many will be deceived because they have not studied and just fell for the deception of articulate, charismatic speakers.

Everything you read even those that are extra biblical text must be sift through the 66 books of the Bible. Remember that the devil has been at this for eons of time. He invested a great deal of time establishing a false history and false religions so when our days come we will not know the truth from fiction. The Bible is our filter. Yes many books are mentioned in the Bible that has not been included in our 66 books; there is no need to go beyond those. They should not add or take away from what has already been established in the 66 books.

Even if you don’t read those extra biblical books you can be sure that studying the Bible through the power and revelation of the Holy Spirit will reveal, unveil what is hidden but you must study. Even in studying the Holy Spirit will direct you to the books you need to read to get the full picture and He will guard your mind from foolish fables.

Yeshua tells us that the path is straight and narrow. There is no need to get off the narrow path to know the truth. Some believers feel it necessary to read and delve into pagan mysterious religions in order to understand the Bible. I disagree. What I can say is that when you read the bible and what the Bible recommends you read it will be enough. Salvation is based on faith in Yeshua by His shed blood for the remission of our sins. Your lack of studying will cause you to be deceived. Your lack of knowledge in the word will cause you to make choices that are detrimental to sustaining your faith in Messiah. Yeshua said many will be deceived meaning they will turn away from faith and thus fall under the spell of the enemy.

There is only one path to salvation as stated in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” There are not many paths that lead to salvation as many foolish believers are saying, there is only one path. Buddha cannot lead you to YHVH. The path of Hinduism, Islam, nor any other religion cannot lead you to salvation. It is Yeshua only.

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

The world is moving toward a one world religion with the image of the beast as their object of worship. (Revelation 13:15) The Ecumenical movement in the church is not scriptural when different religions and beliefs depart from the truth of the Bible.

Look at the definition of ecumenical: “representing a number of different Christian churches. synonyms: nondenominational, universal, catholic, latitudinarian, all-embracing, all-inclusive. "the local churches are sponsoring an ecumenical service on the green." "ecumenical dialogue" promoting or relating to unity among the world's Christian churches."

https://www.google.com/search?q=definition+of+ecumenical

Let us be careful, the true body of Yeshua has no schism. What causes a schism but different views that are apart from the truth – the full truth causes us to have the same belief. “Two cannot walk together unless they agree.” The ‘true Church’ agrees on every level of truth. This is why the Holy Spirit was sent so that the ‘true Church’ will not be deceived. But the members of the body of Yeshua must study the Bible for the Holy Spirit to function in full power.

Studying the Bible will not only give you the truth but it will keep you safe and help you to know what to do in such a time. To know the truth of scripture does not mean you will be the most studied up, the most articulate, the most charismatic, the most knowledgeable or the most quotable or knowing the most references. It means you will know the truth and you will be set free.

I know that not everyone will receive this word but it is for whom it is for.

If you find truth in this post please forward to others.

2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.




But YHVH Meant It Unto Good



Genesis 50:15-23

And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them. And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years. And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's knees.


While Abraham, Isaac and Jacob dwelled in Canaan though the land was promised to them as an inheritance they had not owned it or possessed it until after their descendants came forth out of Egypt and conquered Canaan. During the days of the patriarchs they only sojourned in the land of Canaan. In order to inherit the land they had to leave it.

Thus there was a time when YHVH allowed His people to dwell outside of the land after having sojourned there to “…save much people alive.” He also could not bring judgment to a people whose sins were yet in their seed which had not yet come forth. So says YHVH in Ezekiel 18:20, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.” The iniquity of the Amorites was not yet full.

Joseph was cruelly sold into slavery weeping and wailing all along the way to Egypt in fear and disbelief of what was happening to him. He had no idea that YHVH had a hand in the direction his life was taking.

Genesis 15:13-14

And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

It was already prophesied to Abraham that his descendants would serve another nation “…and afterwards they come out with great substance.” First they had to go to the other nation, that being Egypt, before they could come out of it.

Had the seventy souls stayed in Canaan they would have either died from the famine or their seed would have been polluted as the Canaanites were polluting themselves during those two hundred plus years when the Israelites were in Egypt.

Genesis 15:16

But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

In this text YHVH is telling Abraham that the fullness of the iniquity of the Amorites was not yet to that point warranting absolute judgment. The word ‘iniquity’ is the Hebrew word ‘avon’ which means perversity, moral evil, mischief. YHVH said that the perversity was not yet completed. In other words, YHVH does not judge before the time. The Amorites and Canaanites had to fully complete their perversity or else YHVH would have judged them for something they did not do but would have done.

What was it that the Amorites and Canaanites were doing in the land that was so perverse that YHVH did not want His people exposed to? It was the corruption of their DNA, their seed.

Numbers 13:13

And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

During the Israelites years in Egypt the Amorites, the people of the land of Canaan, were changing themselves from one kind into another kind.
YHVH took Israel out of the land first to save them from famine and secondly to preserve their DNA. It is the same ancient plot of the enemy to corrupt the DNA of the chosen bloodline so the Messiah could not come. This is why YHVH destroyed everything living in Genesis 6 in the flood and saved Noah a perfect man in his generation and his sons and their wives. The word ‘perfect’ in Hebrew is the word ‘tamiym’ which means without blemish. Noah was not polluted with fallen angelic DNA – he was 100% human. YHVH repopulates the earth again using Noah and his son’s pure human DNA thus Messiah’s bloodline was intact.

NOTE: There is a false doctrine that teaches that Cain is the son of Satan and Eve but you only need to read Genesis 4:1-2 to know that Cain is the son of Adam and Eve. “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.” Remember that The Torah, The Law, The Pentateuch is Elohim’s spoken WORD and Moses wrote exactly as YHVH spoke. There is no error in these words PERIOD. YHVH said these words to Cain in Genesis 4:7, “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.” Cain was a man born of Adam and Eve and sin lieth crouching at his door, his heart, his mind trying to corrupt him. All he had to do was to resist it, have dominion over it. There was nothing wrong with Cain’s DNA only his heart. This false doctrine wants us to believe that among the seed of men there is a bloodline of Cain that created the races of giants. Genesis 4:26 tells us when the human race began to turn from YHVH. “And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.” The words “began men” is ‘chalal’ which means to profane, defile, pollute, desecrate. The people began to desecrate the name of YHVH is the right rendering of this text. Genesis 6 tells us that the sons of God came down and mingled with the daughters of men and so there were giants in the land due to the mingling of their DNA. A new gene pool enters in. One thing followed another, first men desecrated the name of YHVH and then the angels descended. This is why YHVH destroyed the entire old world. We see this happening again today with introduction of GMOs and gene splicing and new breeds of animals like ligers and zonkeys, and even cloning etc. After the flood we know that Nimrod as written in Genesis 10 did something to alter himself. By Genesis 36 we have Anah finding mules in the wilderness. “The exact origin of the first mule is unknown, but we do know that the mule was deliberately bred by man in ancient times. The breeding of a jackass (male donkey) with a female horse (mare) is the most common and oldest known manmade hybrid.” http://www.columbiadailyherald.com/article/20120328/LIFESTYLE/303289941 Any introduction of new DNA did not come from Cain but from the fallen angels. By the time the Israelites came out of Egypt giants were the new normal in Canaan. I believe the Amorites being that close to the flood began to do what we do today, excavating to harvest DNA from the decomposed bodies of the flood. You only need to read science magazines and see that scientist is harvesting minuscule amounts of DNA from eons ago to recreate or reintroduce polluted DNA. The movie Jurassic Park should tell you something. People would accept a faulty Cain DNA over the DNA of fallen angels and demons. They want you to buy the lie by making it more human in nature. Remember what Genesis 3:15 states, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Genesis chapters 1 through 5 speaks about her seed and Genesis 6 is Satan’s seed. Daniel 2:43 tells us “And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” Daniel prophesied that the mingling of the iron, angelic DNA, will not cleave with the miry clay, human DNA in the end times. They will, are trying, but it will not cleave. Is this why we have reports of alien abductions and reports of impregnations and stealing of eggs from women who have been abducted? These are not aliens but fallen angels, demons trying to bring back their golden age. Remember in Daniel 2 the prophecy about the image, the head of gold, the arms and breast of silver, the belly and thighs of brass, the legs of iron and finally the feet mixed with iron and clay. This is the final kingdom before the end of days. When this fifth kingdom ends, the seed of the angels and man will be judged. Daniel 2:44 “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” This age, the fifth, will end when Yeshua returns again to rule and reign for 1000 years, this will be the sixth kingdom. After this 1000 year period, 6th kingdom age, then the last battle as recorded in Revelation 20 will put an end to Satan and all the unrighteous. YHVH will set up His kingdom for all eternity. There will be no more firmament; His kingdom will come on earth as it is in heaven. This will be the beginning of the 7th and eternal age – our eternal Sabbath.

The Amorites in the land was altering their gene pool, their DNA was becoming polluted. This is what YHVH spared Jacob and His descendants from by sending them into Egypt. The famine was the catalyst to get them out, but Joseph had already gone down “… to save much people alive….” YHVH sent the famine which He warned Pharaoh about so that Israel will have reason to leave the land of Canaan and thus their lives would be saved and DNA unpolluted.

Sometimes we can’t see why certain things are happening and we blame YHVH for the worst of things not knowing He has orchestrated it. Why? Who wants to willingly abandon all they have worked for and established to escape a prophesied disaster especially if they don’t see it coming? We do not want to believe that in leaving everything behind we are saving our lives though our experiences might be difficult and the material loss is great. YHVH is able to restore the years the locust stole, and all the gold and silver is His and thus He can restore. Indeed, the latter shall be better than the former if we only obey and let go.

Archaeologists found that many inhabitants of Pompeii were buried alive holding onto their precious things. They had time to escape but instead returned to get what they could. These bodies were buried under layers of volcanic ash preserving their bodies and the items they were holding onto.

Remember the holocaust, many were warned that it was coming but they did not want to abandon their wealth and possessions to leave Europe and escape the evil of Hitler’s regime so they perished. Many were stripped of their jewels and money when they arrived in the concentration camps having their wealth sewn into their clothes.

Even in this modern age we see many who put their lives in danger riding out floods, hurricanes, storms, fires and other natural disasters hoping to save what material things they have. They have no clue that what YHVH allows to happen might be to save their lives from something worst.

It was this way with Israel and thus for over two hundred years they served Egypt. But when they came out they came with all the wealth of the land.

I think of Darfur and how the Arabs stole the land of those that might very well be True Israelites and drove them south and scattered them further throughout the nations of the earth as refugees. How devastating this has been but can it be that in modern times YHVH is moving His people out of harm’s way? Can it be that when the people lack wise men in the land, where there are no prophets and no sons of Issachar to tell them what to do that YHVH must take other measures to move His people out?

NOTE: How did Japheth enter the tents of Shem? (Read commentaries: True Israel – Not Wiped out, Not Replaced, Not Forgotten; Not Out of the Ashes But Out Of The Nations; The Ashkenazi Thread, etc. on catchthewaveministries.wordpress.com Blog) First they had to convert to Judaism and then suffer in some ways as True Israelites so that they and others would believe they are Israelites. Look how much time passed before their settled in The Land. The past had to be forgotten so that they believe the lie. Only time could bring all this to pass. Then they having no other place to turn to they ran to The Land thinking they have a right to it. It had to be so.

Genesis 9:27

God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Enlarge – ‘pathah’ meaning to open, make roomy, to be spacious, also mean in a sinister way delude, allure, deceive, entice, flatter, persuade

Dwell – ‘shakan’ the idea of lodging, to reside, permanently stay, abide, have habitation, set up, to settle down to abide, establish

Tents – ‘ohel’ a tent (as clearly conspicuous from a distance) covering, dwelling, tabernacle, nomad’s tent and thus symbolic of wilderness life, transience

Japheth will be enlarged, deceived, deluded and allured into thinking they are true Israelites and they are not. Japheth will dwell, settle in the land that belongs to Shem and shall convert to Shem’s faith that being Abraham’s faith in YHVH thus dwelling in Shem’s tabernacle.

Genesis 10:2-5

The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

All these things had to come to pass for the word of YHVH to be fulfilled.

Here in Genesis 10:3 we read that Ashkenaz is of the Gentiles.
True Israelites have also forgotten their history. Not only have they forgotten who they are but if you take a close look at the description of Israel scattered in the nations you will know who they are. Read Deuteronomy 28. Since True Israel will not be gathered in until Yeshua returns we know that they are in the midst of the curses not the blessings. Thus we must identify them by the descriptions of the curses.

Joseph was the one who suffered for years so that when the appointed time came he would be in position to enter the palace. He had no idea until the famine came that YHVH’s intention was for him to save his people. When Jacob died Joseph told his brothers this much. “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”

There is a reason why an African American is in the British palace. It was under that kingdom that True Israel was enslaved. The scepter will be extended to her.

The Arabs thought it evil against the Darfurians but YHVH surely meant it for good. The coming battle is not for True Israel to fight but for those settlers in the land. YHVH is moving His people out of the way. I am sure that an atomic weapon will be used to annihilate the nations that come against Jerusalem. The after effects will be far-reaching.

Zachariah 14:12-13

And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

This plague that comes upon the nations that fought (Note: fought in Hebrew is ‘tsaba’ to mass an army) against Jerusalem is a description of what happens when an atomic bomb is used. We have records of this from Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Chernobyl. The flesh consuming away literally means to melt away. Even the deformities will flourish during those days. Israel cannot approach YHVH if they are lame and diseased.

YHVH is removing His people far from the destruction of the battle of the nations that will come up against Jerusalem. Who shall believe this report? The refugees that are currently in The Land who are being forced out, surely this action is not meant by YHVH for evil against them. Surely it is for to save their lives. Even the current government there is offering them a good deal of money to leave and this is like in the days of Egypt when the Egyptians gave the Israelites their wealth to leave the land.

Yes, I am saying take it and leave. Make good of it when you go to the place YHVH will send you to. Don’t squander it. Use it to get an education, to build schools and hospitals and businesses that will support you and your fellow refugees while you wait in strange lands until the fulfillment of prophesy.

Perhaps this message is for those settlers in The Land that has found Messiah and knows the truth and desires to live and not die. Perhaps they will heed the warning and make ready to leave. The word is not just for True Israel but also for anyone that come to Messiah through faith – the church. You can either leave now fleeing the judgment to come or you can stay and be caught in the middle. History has a way of repeating.

Ezekiel 38:18-23

And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

This is what those who remain in the land will be caught up in. Who will believe this report? The judgment to come will be far reaching. The host of Gog and Magog and all the nations that come up against Jerusalem will be spread far and wide. There will be millions who will lose their lives. The blast from the destruction to come will reach far into the adjoining nations. The radiation affects will be far reaching. It will affect both the people that fought against Jerusalem and their animals which are in their encampments.

Zechariah 14:12

And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Zechariah 14:15

And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.

It is this destruction and after affects YHVH’s is shielding His people from by keeping them in far countries.

NOTE: This is not the last battle on earth. This is the battle of the nations against Jerusalem. Gog and Magog are the kingdoms of men – these are the ancient human kingdoms mentioned in the Bible that will rise again. This battle will occur at the end of the great tribulation and then Messiah will return to rule and reign for 1000 years. During this time Satan will be bound. At the end of the 1000 year Satan will be loose and he will gather Gog and Magog which now will be the kingdoms of the fallen angels and some men will rally with them. This will be the last battle and in this case fire and brimstone will rain down from heaven and destroy them all. I am working on this commentary based on the last battle. Read Revelation 20.

Go back and read the commentary entitled Stop Looking at Man and Read the Bible to know what to do when this devastation comes whatever it might be.

Exodus 12:13

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Just as the Israelites were shielded during the last plague in Egypt by putting the blood of the sacrifice lamb upon the door post the church will also be spared if they apply the blood of Yeshua upon their hearts. As it was in the beginning so shall to be in the end. As death passed over the Israelites abode then so will it pass over the dwelling of every believer in that time to come. This goes for Jew and Gentile alike who comes to Yeshua by faith. Yeshua is the light of the world and it is by His light that we trim our lamps – He is the way, the truth and the life.

So what will happen to those True Israelites who live through the battle of the nations but did not believe Yeshua to be their Messiah?

Zechariah 10:8-10

I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them: and they shall increase as they have increased. And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again. I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them.

Read this passage with the definitions below and see that YHVH will signal to His people in far off countries so they will remember who they are. He will show them that they were kept there to be preserved. While they are in those far off countries they are to continue to live and to multiply. When they receive the signal they will remember who they are and turn again with their children back to YHVH. This does not happen in The Land but in far off countries where YHVH has placed them to preserve their lives.

Hiss – sharaq, to whistle (as a call, as a signal)

Gather – qabats, to grasp, collect, assemble

Redeem – padah, to sever, ransom, preserve, deliver

Increase – rabah, abundance, enlarge, become many

Sow – zera, to disseminate, plant, scatter sow, to become pregnant

People – a people, nation

Remember – zakar, to mark (so as to be recognized), recall, to be brought to remembrance

Far countries – merchaq, remoteness, a distant place, from afar

Live- chayah, keep alive, remain alive

Children – ben, son, grandson, child, member of a group

Turn again- shuwb, to turn back, the idea of return to the starting point, come or go back to

Who will believe this report?

YHVH will call for them from out of the nations; they will hear, recognize His call and they will respond. They will turn back to YHVH whom they despised and forsook. They will remember who they are and why they were scattered. They will come with their children out of the land of Egypt. Egypt is the continent of Africa and a metaphor for how Egypt treated them when they were slaves there. Assyria is that nation that first scattered the northern kingdom into all its conquered lands. Not only did Assyria take the people out of the land of their inheritance but they assimilated them into the people groups of its empire.

You recall how the Samaritans came to be. These were true Israelites that remained in the land after Assyria took them captive. The Assyrian empire then took others from other parts of its empire and intermixed them with the Jews left in the land and they inter mingled – half Jew half Gentile.

This is what Assyria did to the True Israelites throughout its empire. This is why Yeshua found a need to go to Samaria and preach the gospel to the woman at the well. Not one grain will fall to the earth. If you look at the migration of people in Africa you will see that they began from the Edge of the Assyrian Empire and migrated westward and southward throughout all of Africa. This migration would still preserve a purebred Israelite race in Africa. Those that migrated throughout what would become the Babylonia and Persian Empire would have been deposited in groups that would have allowed them to maintain their racial identity.

The Assyrians mingled or scattered abroad the seeds of captivity if you will. There is no better way to hide something than among a similar kind. The Babylonians and Persian displaced the populations to another place intact. YHVH says He will hiss for his people who will recognize the sound of His whistle and they will respond and return. He said that not one grain will fall to the earth. Those that remain intact as a people’s group will be gathered and those that were intermingled, even if it is one drop of DNA remaining, they will hear and respond. The woman at the well was a grain. Thus from Africa to Assyria they will come. Remember that the Babylonian captives were allowed to return after seventy years. Not all returned but the remnant will be gathered back during the time of Yeshua’s reign.

The stage is being set but how long it will take no one knows. Even Yeshua said not even the angels in heaven knows the time of His return. But we know that at the end of the seven years appointed for the tribulation He will come again. Yeshua also said that the time will be shortened for the sake of His elect, True Israel. We can gather from this report that when that time comes it will happen without warning - suddenly. As in Noah’s days the flood came and no one believed his report that it was coming until the doors of the Ark were shut.

Noah preached 120 years before the flood came. Joseph was in Egypt 12 years before he was called before Pharaoh and another seven years during the years of plenty. Esther was in position 5 years before her ‘such a time as this.” Daniel was two years before his first “such a time as this.”

How long will you take before positioning yourself to be saved? Yeshua said suddenly. Who will be caught behind the lines with no way of escape?

Matthew 24:15-22

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Yes, many will be caught off guard. Yeshua tells us what sign to look for to know when the time is upon us. He speaks about the Sabbath and the winter both times signifying times of preparation. No one can work on the Sabbath so they must prepare beforehand. Even the animals prepare for the winter months by gathering their food ahead of the time. Who will believe this report? Who will make ready? “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.” Suddenly and in rapid succession!

We also know that for the battle of the nations to happen all nations on the earth must be united. There will be no dictators or republics or monarchies that will be left out. All will be engaged in this battle. Zachariah 14:16 tells us, “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.” The world will become united and every stronghold must come down. It is no strange thing that North Korea is seeking inclusion. All the nations of the earth will be one in this battle against Jerusalem. Resources will be pooled and some great cataclysmic or disaster will occur to unite all nations against Jerusalem. Who knows what maybe Israel will unleash upon the world in anticipation of defending its self and bringing about this battle. Remember, the inhabitants of the land are not True Israelites, they have been deceived to believe they are and that the world is against them and that they must defend themselves. The church has added to this deception telling Israel, the people that have settled the land, that they have a right to defend themselves. YHVH told Israel that He will fight for her, not by might nor by Israel’s power but by YHVH’s Spirit. The battle is the LORD’s.

The church not knowing the truth has a hand it bringing all this to pass. The church is pressuring Israel to defend its self at all cost. The church is raising millions of dollars in support of this people in the land to build homes and infrastructure being also deceived. This deception comes for the lack of knowledge in the seminaries. The church has convinced this people that they can win at all cost because YHVH is on their side so they declare and decree over the people who have settled in the land as Jews and are not. This will cause the world to persecute the church. Many are putting million into Israel’s military and security systems. They are of the synagogue of Satan because they are following his agenda. They church thinks it is doing YHVH a favor.

This is a report for the church and for True Israel. Who will believe it? We are living in the days of sophisticated technology and think that we can survive anything including death. But something will happen to darken the sun and cause the moon to cease from giving light. Technology will fail and so we will have to revert back to horses and chariots.

Joel 3:9-12

Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

Humanity will revert back to antiquated weapons because something will hinder or block their sophisticated technology from working. Something significant will happen in Jerusalem that will cause most of the nations to assemble themselves against Jerusalem and those that dwell in the land. Israel is the most technologically advanced nations in the world. It has security systems in place that we cannot even imagine. This battle is not about oil but about something else that will have an enormous impact on the earth. Too much power in one hand is much too much. Israel has a great deal of power, enough to cause others to fear whether that fear is real or not.

These things must come to pass because YHVH spoke them to the prophets and they recorded them as something that will happen in the future. It will come to pass.

Numbers 23:19

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Isaiah 14:27

For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

Isaiah 55:11

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Yes, these things will happen because YHVH declares them to be so. Thus we know that he does nothing without first telling His prophets. What is happening to True Israel now is so that YHVH can preserve them. It is not meant for evil. Let YHVH preserve you. Even for the church this is the time of warning to get right and turn again back to Messiah.

Nothing is happening that is not meant to happen. YHVH is signaling for the church and True Israel to get out of harm’s way. YHVH is also hissing, signaling to us to make ready. True Israel has endured this long, but just a while longer and we shall see the mighty hands of YHVH on behalf of His people and the church of Yeshua.

These are the years of sifting the wheat which is the church. The church is on the threshing floor. Let YHVH remove the chaff and the leaven. Let Him purge you through the fire so that you will be purified. Even to those that are of the house of Japheth who have found Messiah, come out from amongst them. Revelation 2:9b says, “…and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Heed the warning!

There is truth in the word of YHVH. Japheth is in the land because they have a part to play.

Read the message from Messiah to the seven churches in Revelations 2-3. These are all signs of the churches in the end times. A remnant will come from both the church and True Israel. The works of the seven churches will be evident in the last days.

May the Holy Spirit open your eyes and give you understanding. If you don’t care to prepare yourselves then at least do it for your children and children’s children. We do not know which generation will see these prophecies come to pass. Remember Daniel’s prophecies were shut up for a time.

Daniel 12:5-12

Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

How long has it been since Daniel penned these words? This shall not happen until YHVH has “accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people.” In other words, not until True Israel cease from moving about in the earth scattered as refugees, fleeing the atrocities of nations. As much as the gospel must be spread throughout the ends of the earth before the end comes so must we look to the conclusion of True Israel being scattered yet staying put where they are among the nations.

Both the fullness of the Gentiles as spoken of in Romans 11:25 and the end of True Israel being scattered as spoken of in Daniel 12:7b will occur at the same time. Following this we will see Daniel’s prophecy of the “abomination that maketh desolate” and from that point marks the beginning of the last three and a half years of the great tribulation that will culminate with the battle of the nations against Jerusalem.

Babylon will be destroyed and Messiah will return with His chosen 144,000 and the saints which are the church will be included. Those that have been purified and turn to Yeshua who remain alive when Messiah returns will be caught up with Him. They will return with Messiah to establish His 1000 year kingdom on the earth. You can read more in-depth studies about this in the commentary entitled ‘How The Remnant Shall Return’, ‘The 144,000 Redeemed Israelites’ and other commentaries posted on the blog: catchthewaveministries.wordpress.com

What is happening to True Israel still at this current time is not meant for evil but for their good. YHVH will bless those that bless True Israel and curse those that cruse True Israel. Surely, those who recognize who True Israel is and help her will be blessed but those who continue to oppress YHVH’s people will receive due judgment upon their own heads.

Isaiah 16:3-4

Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; betray not him that wandereth. Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.

Yes, YHVH has hidden His children, His people, True Israel among the heathens and He bids them to hid His outcast, those that wander from nation to nation, He bids them, counsels them, to let the remnant of True Israel dwell with them. He tells them to be covert, hide them, and keep them in secrecy from the face of those that will destroy them. This is true for any nation or people who will not betray those who are True Israelites hidden within in their nations.

The Moabites were the cousins of Israel being descendants of Lot’s sons. So YHVH tells the next of kin not to betray His people. If True Israel has assimilated in your society then YHVH is saying don’t betray them as we see happening today. Discrimination of True Israel is rampant in our world today.

The good that is done for True Israel might be paid forward at such a time as you know not when. What I know is that you know what it is that you are doing to oppress these people in your land; you know your discrimination and your acts of willful disregard for their humanity. You know the squalor you have forced them to dwell in and you know the quality of life you have denied them. You also know the proverbs you speak against them.

True Israel is hidden away for their own good, for to save their lives so that at the return of Yeshua they might be gathered in. YHVH will deal with each nation, people and individuals that harasses His People while they were in The Land and in the nations. “LET MINE OUTCAST DWELL WITH THEE.”

Once I was blind but now I see.

Let me encourage you to study the word:

Deuteronomy 29:29

The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

I Chronicles 12:32

And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.

Acts 17:10-11

And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Reading the word is not enough but you must give yourself over to studying the word for wisdom and understanding. How will you know what the truth is when it is presented to you if you do not study? Many will be deceived because they have not studied and just fell for the deception of articulate, charismatic speakers.

Everything you read even those that are extra biblical text must be sift through the 66 books of the Bible. Remember that the devil has been at this for eons of time. He invested a great deal of time establishing a false history and false religions so when our days come we will not know the truth from fiction. The Bible is our filter. Yes many books are mentioned in the Bible that has not been included in our 66 books; there is no need to go beyond those. They should not add or take away from what has already been established in the 66 books.

Even if you don’t read those extra biblical books you can be sure that studying the Bible through the power and revelation of the Holy Spirit will reveal, unveil what is hidden but you must study. Even in studying the Holy Spirit will direct you to the books you need to read to get the full picture and He will guard your mind from foolish fables.

Yeshua tells us that the path is straight and narrow. There is no need to get off the narrow path to know the truth. Some believers feel it necessary to read and delve into pagan mysterious religions in order to understand the Bible. I disagree. What I can say is that when you read the bible and what the Bible recommends you read it will be enough. Salvation is based on faith in Yeshua by His shed blood for the remission of our sins. Your lack of studying will cause you to be deceived. Your lack of knowledge in the word will cause you to make choices that are detrimental to sustaining your faith in Messiah. Yeshua said many will be deceived meaning they will turn away from faith and thus fall under the spell of the enemy.

There is only one path to salvation as stated in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” There are not many paths that lead to salvation as many foolish believers are saying, there is only one path. Buddha cannot lead you to YHVH. The path of Hinduism, Islam, nor any other religion cannot lead you to salvation. It is Yeshua only.

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

The world is moving toward a one world religion with the image of the beast as their object of worship. (Revelation 13:15) The Ecumenical movement in the church is not scriptural when different religions and beliefs depart from the truth of the Bible.

Look at the definition of ecumenical: “representing a number of different Christian churches. synonyms: nondenominational, universal, catholic, latitudinarian, all-embracing, all-inclusive. "the local churches are sponsoring an ecumenical service on the green." "ecumenical dialogue" promoting or relating to unity among the world's Christian churches."

https://www.google.com/search?q=definition+of+ecumenical

Let us be careful, the true body of Yeshua has no schism. What causes a schism but different views that are apart from the truth – the full truth causes us to have the same belief. “Two cannot walk together unless they agree.” The ‘true Church’ agrees on every level of truth. This is why the Holy Spirit was sent so that the ‘true Church’ will not be deceived. But the members of the body of Yeshua must study the Bible for the Holy Spirit to function in full power.

Studying the Bible will not only give you the truth but it will keep you safe and help you to know what to do in such a time. To know the truth of scripture does not mean you will be the most studied up, the most articulate, the most charismatic, the most knowledgeable or the most quotable or knowing the most references. It means you will know the truth and you will be set free.

I know that not everyone will receive this word but it is for whom it is for.

If you find truth in this post please forward to others.

Joy with the joy of YHVH

2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.




The Bible Does Not Say Israel Will Be A Nation In 1948

Matthew 24:32-36

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Many use this passage and similar passages to claim that it was prophesied that Israel would become a new nation in 1948 and the Jews would return to the land. We know that whatever the meaning of this reference to the fig tree is, in that generation, we should look for the return of Messiah. Does the interpretation of this text imply that Israel would be a nation again in 1948? According to this text the reference to the fig tree is actually about the season when we can expect Yeshua to return. This has nothing to do with Israel as a nation.

The fig tree is representative of a specific tree that is known particularly to bud at the beginning of the summer in Israel. The summer is the season in which one should look for the return of Yeshua. This mentioning of the fig tree has nothing to do with Israel as a people but rather it is about a specific fruit tree of the land which is known for its time of shooting forth. The very mention of the fig tree tells you much about what season we are in.

For example, the Biblical year begins with the first new moon after the barley is ripe in Israel. If the barley is ripe then the following new moon is Hodesh Ha-Aviv and if it is not ripe then they must wait another month before declaring a new year. It is the same with the sign of the fig tree putting forth leaves that would indicate summer is beginning. The emphasis is not the fig tree but rather on what time of year it shoots forth its leaves.

Luke 21:29-33

And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Again we have mention of a “fig tree, and all the trees” because we are being guided to take note of the fig tree and when it shoots forth in its season. Our attention is being drawn to all the trees that shoot forth at the same time as the fig tree. We are to make a distinction as to when they bud forth. “When they now shoot forth” is stated to draw our attention to when specific trees begin to bud forth in the summer at the same exact time as the fig tree. In other words, if you don’t see the fig tree but you see another tree that blooms or shoot forth its leaves at the exact same time each year, as the fig tree, you can still identify the season by this characteristic of those other trees.

I have read many scripture verses that have been cited claiming Israel is a fig tree and that it will be a nation in 1948. This is clearly not true. Many false or unlearnt Bible scholars’ makes this claim based on the mentioning of the fig tree. The Bible is clear that Israel is a ‘green olive tree.’ (See Psalms 52:8, Jeremiah 11:16, Romans 11) Let me discuss a prominent text in Jeremiah that is cited the most to claim Israel is a fig tree.

Jeremiah 24

The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon. One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad. Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart. And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt: And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.

Jeremiah was given a vision of two baskets to consider. The vision was a similitude of something that was happening in reality in Jeremiah’s time. First, note that the text cited in Jeremiah is not referring to Israel as a fig tree but as the fruits of the fig tree. There is a difference as Israel is actually referred to as an olive tree throughout the Bible as mentioned above. An olive tree is an olive and a fig tree is a fig tree thus an olive tree can’t produce figs and neither can figs produce olive berries.

James 3:12

Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

Let’s not mix fig and olives so to speak. The reference to figs in Jeremiah 24 is speaking about the maturity of the fruit and the time it comes into season – that being the summer time. Up to Jeremiah’s day Israel had been lead by judges, prophets and by kings and finally the last kingdom, the southern kingdom of Judah, is being taken into captivity. This is a nation that should have been mature in the law and keepers of the law but instead they were being plucked up and scattered. They should have been planted firmly by this time in their history. Israel is not a fig tree but only like the mature fruit on the tree which bears it fruit in due season. Israel is also referred to as the firstfruits which belong to YHVH. They were given a mandate to be holy and be that light to the heathen nations so those nations would come to see YHVH as the Most High Elohim and repent and return to Him.

The mature fig, rather than being harvested and eaten, it is being plucked up off the land and scattered. This is the image the Bible wants us to have. In the fullness of the harvest the figs are gathered and should be expected to be eaten but no, these figs are being scattered.

YHVH shows Jeremiah two baskets of figs, one basket having good figs and the other basket had very naughty figs. These two baskets were set before the temple of YHVH. This means the figs were gathered in Jerusalem where the temple was. This is where the figs originated from – in the land. It was the first fruit of the season. The first fruits are always presented to YHVH but instead these figs are taken into captivity.

We can make a quick comparison: in Jeremiah’s day the firstfruits of Israel were taken into captivity and in Yeshua’s day they were blinded.

In the text above the first basket of figs was taken captive into Babylon with their king the true heir to the throne of David, Jehoiachin.

The other basket had the naughty figs and could not be eaten – in other words these figs, also a tithe unto YHVH would not survive because they were naughty. We know that the tithe is to be eaten – a figure of speech here – presented to YHVH. The firstfruits, first ripe are holy unto YHVH.

Deuteronomy 14:22-23

Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.

The firstfruits of the land are from the fig tree meant to be offered up as a tithe. Yet this first basket of the firstfruits of Jerusalem is being sent into captivity for a specific time.

Hosea 9:10

I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.

You see the first ripe of Israel were shameful because of their idolatry and treatment of the orphans and widows. These who were holy unto YHVH had polluted themselves and the land. That verse in Hosea is not speaking about the tree but about the ‘first ripe’ fruit from one of the first producing fruit trees in the land, the fig tree. The figs from this first basket will be eaten, returned back to YHVH, at a later time upon their return to Jerusalem after their 70 years of captivity. In other words the tithe, or Israel as a tithe, will be acceptable upon their return to the land.

This is the law of YHVH as spoken to Moses in Deuteronomy 14:22-23. The tithe is to be eaten, consumed. Now in Jeremiah 24:2 it clearly states that the second basket of figs “...could not be eaten, they were so bad.” The reason this second basket of figs could not be eaten is because they refused to go with the figs of the first basket. This reference to figs implies that all the figs were the first fruits of the nation of Israel. All these figs were harvested at the same time, the first harvested.

YHVH told Jeremiah that Israel must to go into captivity but some went and others remained. The second basket of figs is not only naughty and can’t be eaten, presented to YHVH, because they are so very evil. They are willfully disobedient to YHVH. The first basket of figs is willing but the second basket of figs is disobedient on two levels which we will discuss later.

Let me speak about the baskets for a moment. Remember in Genesis 40 Joseph had the opportunity to interpret the dreams of two of the king’s officers. The baker had a dream about three baskets and here is what Joseph stated the interpretation of the baskets was.

Genesis 40:18

And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days:

There is consistency in the word of YHVH. I believe YHVH is telling us that the events in this chapter is about what will occur in two days, or rather two different time periods. Remember that 1000 years is as a day to YHVH and a day as 1000 years. The figs in the first basket of good figs are occurring during the time of the Babylonian captivity. Even though we will see that this also refers to those who refused to go into captivity or stay put in the land we will see that it is also speaking about a time to come later on. I believe this second day to come in which this text is referring to will be the time of Messiah’s 1000 year reign.

Hear the words of YHVH clearly: “Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.” Do you hear YHVH’s words? My last commentary “YHVH Meant It Unto Good” speaks clearly about this very thing. When YHVH removes the people out of the land it is also for their own good. There are two purposes of this captivity and two separate occurrences referring to the two baskets and at two different times.

YHVH has not forgotten Israel; He will again acknowledge those that have been carried away captive throughout the earth even unto the four winds of the earth.

On the one hand YHVH must keep true to His covenant vows that if Israel sin they will be spewed out of the land. On the other hand YHVH uses the opportunity of taking Israel out of the land in order to preserve them – for their own good. This first basket of figs was being removed for the purpose of preserving the bloodline of True Israel from which the Messiah will come.

Now in this first basket taken away was Johiakim King of Judah who was the true heir to the throne. YHVH acknowledges the first basket of figs and they are good figs. Though the world wants to think that True Israel is evil in fact YHVH says they are good figs – good fruit. Remember all Israel had committed idolatry but YHVH removed those that were obedient to go into captivity of which He calls them ‘good figs’ - the obedient figs.

This remnant will return by decree of Cyrus after 70 years and so it was. Remember that those few that did stay in the land or returned during Nehemiah’s time married women from the surrounding nations and they had children with them. The people had begun to worship the idols of other nations and the next step would have been too intermarried with them. YHVH plucked them out to preserve them from this intermingling. Remember that it is from the tribe of Judah that the Messiah would come so the DNA had to be preserved. The Samarians were already an intermingling of the northern tribe and other nations assimilated in with them by the Assyrians.

Nehemiah 13:23-31

In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab: And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people. And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves. Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin. Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives? And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son in law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me. Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites. Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, every one in his business; And for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the firstfruits. Remember me, O my God, for good.

This is what Ezra and Nehemiah found when they returned after 70 years to the land.

So we have dealt a bit with the good figs and know that they were the first figs picked and they were good figs because they obeyed YHVH and went into captivity to be brought back later.

Why the reference to the naughty evil figs? The understanding of this is twofold. Nebuchadnezzar replaced the true king with a false king. Zedekiah was the puppet king on the throne of Judah and he ruled over the second basket that did not go into captivity – the evil figs. He replaced the true king thus the kingdom was false. During the second day or occurrence of this prophecy the kingdom will also be a false kingdom being replaced by those that are not the true heirs. This is one part of the future prophecy. The reality is that those who say they are Jew but are not have been promoted in this modern age to settle the land and to call it their own in 1948.

The prophecy is twofold, what will happen in Jeremiah’s time and what will happen in a time to come. Just like in Joseph’s interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream the baskets represents a specific number of days.

True Israelites are taken captive out of the land and True Israelites returns to the land by order of a king. The King of kings sent them out and a king, Cyrus, brought them back. It will be a king who will again bring the true remnant back – Yeshua. YHVH’s dealings are with kings.

YHVH tells us what to look for when the true kingdom comes back into the land. First, YHVH tells us how to identify the true inhabitants of the kingdom from the false inhabitants of the false kingdom.

“And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.” This has not happen even today. The people in the land do not know YHVH for if they did they would know His Son. They cannot return to YHVH with their whole heart because they are not of the green olive tree. Most modern day Israelis would tell you to your face they are atheist. They do not believe in YHVH. And the Orthodox and all others do not love YHVH with their whole heart because if they did they would accept His Son. These people are not blind they just are not of the green olive tree. The enemy has planted them in the land just like Nebuchadnezzar planted Zedekiah in Jerusalem on the throne that did not belong to him.

Jeremiah 24:8 tells us clearly that Nebuchadnezzar replaced the true king with Zedekiah. You see the true good figs were removed and what was left was a renegade remnant that refused to go into captivity in Babylon. Hear what YHVH spoke unto them. He tells us that those who are sent out of the land unto the Chaldeans, He will bring again.

Then YHVH said, “And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt: And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.” As it was in the first day so shall it be in the second day. Those that are of the false kingdom shall be consumed from off the land.

YHVH is telling us what will happen to those that did not go into captivity. The people remaining in Judah sent Jeremiah to inquire of YHVH on their behalf asking Him whether they should go into Egypt to escape the Babylonians.

Jeremiah 42:7-19

And it came to pass after ten days, that the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah. Then called he Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces which were with him, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, And said unto them, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, unto whom ye sent me to present your supplication before him; If ye will still abide in this land, then will I build you, and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up: for I repent me of the evil that I have done unto you. Be not afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom ye are afraid; be not afraid of him, saith the LORD: for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand. And I will shew mercies unto you, that he may have mercy upon you, and cause you to return to your own land. But if ye say, We will not dwell in this land, neither obey the voice of the LORD your God, Saying, No; but we will go into the land of Egypt, where we shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the trumpet, nor have hunger of bread; and there will we dwell: And now therefore hear the word of the LORD, ye remnant of Judah; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; If ye wholly set your faces to enter into Egypt, and go to sojourn there; Then it shall come to pass, that the sword, which ye feared, shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine, whereof ye were afraid, shall follow close after you there in Egypt; and there ye shall die. So shall it be with all the men that set their faces to go into Egypt to sojourn there; they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that I will bring upon them. For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As mine anger and my fury hath been poured forth upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; so shall my fury be poured forth upon you, when ye shall enter into Egypt: and ye shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and ye shall see this place no more. The LORD hath said concerning you, O ye remnant of Judah; Go ye not into Egypt: know certainly that I have admonished you this day.

YHVH warns the people that remain under Zedekiah, the false king, to remain in the land and He, YHVH, will take care of them. But the people refused to obey YHVH and we know that they went into Egypt and were destroyed. Continue to read Jeremiah 43-44 and see how those people responded to YHVH’s words and what became of them.

Jeremiah 43:1-4

And it came to pass, that when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking unto all the people all the words of the LORD their God, for which the LORD their God had sent him to them, even all these words, Then spake Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the proud men, saying unto Jeremiah, Thou speakest falsely: the LORD our God hath not sent thee to say, Go not into Egypt to sojourn there: But Baruch the son of Neriah setteth thee on against us, for to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they might put us to death, and carry us away captives into Babylon. So Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, obeyed not the voice of the LORD, to dwell in the land of Judah.

The issue of Zedekiah is prominent in this story of the two baskets because the second basket of figs is wiped out. The false kingdom is destroyed in Jeremiah’s day and it will be I the next day to come. But this is only the first day which represents the two baskets being interpreted as days.

We see from this passage often used to represent Israel as a fig tree it does not hold water. Israel is only the figs in the baskets.

Another portion of scripture used to state that Israel is a fig tree is Luke 13:6-9

“He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.”

The emphasis of this portion of scripture is on the fruit not the tree. Here is a tree that has not produced fruit. After putting so much time into dressing the tree it had no fruit. The man in the parable is looking for fruit and is only concern about the fruit. He has no regard for the tree because he ordered it to be cut down. This fig tree is not Israel as Israel is referred to as a green olive tree and one to be pruned not chopped down.

Romans 11:16-17

For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Jeremiah 11:16

The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.

You see, as a green olive tree Israel is fair and of goodly fruit whose branches of unbelief are broken off.

Romans 11:19-21

Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Also John 15 refers to the vine being pruned not chopped down when it does not bear fruit. Israel is the olive tree not the fig tree. Israel and the church are referred to as fruits when it comes to sin and the nature of godly character and virtues.

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Matthew 7:16-20

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

The emphasis here in these verses is the fruits not the tree. They are known by their fruit not by the tree. “…every good tree” could be any kind of tree which brings forth good fruit. The law is a good tree, the Spirit of YHVH is a good tree, the kingdom of YHVH is a good tree, and marriage could also be a tree and bring forth good fruit. Israel is also a tree and like or as a fig tree can bring forth good or bad fruits. The fig tree is one of the first fruit trees to bloom in the Land and thus Israel is seen as the first fruits of the nations. In the reference to the figs taken into captivity into Babylon we see those figs coming back. The tree was not hewed down. True Israel will return to the land again, the tree shall be hewed down.

Matthew 21:17-19

And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there. Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

The emphasis is placed on Yeshua being hungry and seeking fruit from the fig tree and finding none. We have a fig tree that actually have leaves on it so it is a tree with no production. This can be seen also like the false kingdom that bloom into a nation but produces no fruits as described by the prophets. The focus is the fruit. Israel is a green olive tree and only the branches are broken off. The olive tree is never chopped down nor utterly destroyed.

This story in Matthew 21 is not about Israel but about being hungry. Yeshua also uses this event to teach about having faith when you pray. Imagine the creator of the entire world including this tree and it could not even produce a fruit for its creator when He passed by. Thus it was cursed.

Let’s look at the deeper meaning of these passages already discussed. It is not just about Israel but also about Jerusalem. Look at the great undertaking to rebuild the city of Jerusalem when the captives returned from Babylon. YHVH is not only focused on Israel but also on Jerusalem the city. This beloved city of YHVH is also a sign as to what is to come. When YHVH asks us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem He meant for us to do just that.

Much hinges on the peace of Jerusalem. When Jerusalem is besieged by all the nations in the world we will know that Yeshua’s return is imminent. Praying for the peace of that city means the world continues, but when that city is besieged by the nations of the earth we know the end of this age is nigh upon us. “Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?” (Ecclesiastes 7:17)

We must look to understand what will happen to Jerusalem in order to understand when Israel will be a nation again.

Luke 19:41-44

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

Here is a verse used to speak about Jerusalem and the peace of that city. He said that the future things that will occur are hid from the eyes of those at that present time. He is actually speaking about the city of Jerusalem not about Israel the people. Yeshua “wept over it,” the city, not the people of the city. “For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another.”

Yeshua is speaking about Jerusalem in a future time and He states “thy children within thee”, or rather the inhabitants within the city not Israel the people. It means whoever is dwelling within Jerusalem at the time.

Let’s look at the text that follows. Yeshua afterward go to the temple and find people selling their wares and this is what He said. “It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.” He is speaking about the temple being a house of prayer.

So we have Yeshua speaking about both the temple and the city Jerusalem not about the Jews/Israelites. The battle before Yeshua returns is against Jerusalem not Israel. Jerusalem is that great city that the enemy wants to possess. Why?

The enemy wants that city and this is why YHVH tells us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem not its inhabitants. The true heirs to that land is scattered to the four winds and are kept there for their safety. The peace of Jerusalem has everything to do with the end of days. As long as the peace of Jerusalem is maintained the earth continues.

Yeshua also said, “My house is the house of prayer.” What exactly are we missing here? The prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah both spoke about the house being YHVH’s house of prayer. Isaiah 56:7, Jeremiah 7:11 and Matthew 21:13 and Mark 11:17 also reiterate this.

Isaiah 56:7

Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of theFather, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost Matthew 28 : 19

Jeremiah 7:11

Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD.

It is not the people Israel that the world is seeking to destroy but rather the house and that city of YHVH which is called by His name or bears His name. It is the ancient act of rebellion as in the days of Satan and Nimrod. Satan wanted to usurp YHVH’s throne and Nimrod wanted to build a tower so high into heaven and to make a name for his self rather than to worship YHVH’s name. (Genesis 11:4) You see the enemies of YHVH want to obliterate His name from the face of the earth since they cannot do it in heaven. It is “this house, which is called by my name” that they want to obliterate or write their names on.

Both the temple and Jerusalem belongs to YHVH and these are both affixed to the earth and so the enemy’s desire is to take them from Him and rule and reign in His stead. In Milton’s book Paradise Lost Satan declares, “Better to rule in hell than serve in heaven.” Lucifer, Satan, the devil, that old serpent and dragon wants to rule and he does not care from where. If he can’t rule one place he will settle for another. “True Israel is a target used to get to YHVH. Pollute Israel the people and they think they will hinder YHVH’s plans. They could not stop Messiah from coming the first time but they are hoping to hinder His return.

“…but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.” This “time of thy visitation” is the day of the second basket mentioned in Jeremiah 42.

What is hid, that second day, the second basket wherein the figs are naughty, evil, so very evil. Yeshua is speaking to Jerusalem that beloved city. “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it.” (Luke 19:41) The reference to “A trench,” is actually a siege that will encompass Jerusalem greater than in the days of Nebuchadnezzar. This is brought about by those nations that come up against Jerusalem in the last days. They will encamp around Jerusalem with the host of their armies and there lay Jerusalem and its inhabitants waste. Scholars do not want to see the actual city of Jerusalem but rather spiritualize it as representing Israel.

In this second day as in the second basket representing another day, it is noted that Zedekiah was a false puppet king over the remnant that remain of Israel. His strings were being pulled by Babylon as it will be in the last days. The false inhabitants of Jerusalem at that time will also have their strings pulled by Babylon, the nations united. Yes, they are being promoted by Babylon and the false church. They are puppets and don’t know it. Their false pride is due to their technology and superior security measures they have in place.

Let us not read into this text that Israel will be a nation again during this time because the text reads “and thy children within thee.” The words convey children of a city, its citizens or inhabitants. Those who dwell in Jerusalem at this time are the children within. Those that currently dwell in the land are not Israelites but settlers from the tribe of Japheth. They are still the children within. Not the children of YHVH but the children of that city.

Unfortunately as the second basket in Jeremiah’s day perished so will those in this second day of events.

The afore cited passages of scripture noted above neither state that Israel is a fig tree and they do not state that Israel will return to the land and be a nation again in 1948.

Another text cited by proponents of modern day Israel being a Biblically mandated nation founded in 1948 is Romans 11:25-26:

“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”

This passage does not speak about Israel becoming a nation again as some purport. This will not happen until the gospel is preached to all Gentiles. Not until after the tribulation period when the 144,000 preach the power of the gospel will the fullness of the Gentiles occur. After this Jerusalem will be under siege and then Messiah will return and rule and reign from Mount Zion. Not until then will Israel be in the land again as a nation. Not until, “There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer.” Israel is not yet saved because their Deliverer has not return to Zion and ungodliness has not been taken away from Jacob. All the ducks is not yet lined up.

Here is another text often used to make claims that Israel became a new nation in 1948.

Isaiah 66:1-13

Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompence to his enemies. Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God. Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her: That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

This text is not at all difficult to understand. Anyone who thinks that YHVH needs the temple or Jerusalem to rule on earth is completely mistaken. “The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?.” He is speaking to Israel telling her that He does not need these things. YHVH allowed Solomon to build this house because it was David’s heart to do so. YHVH has no need of these structures.

Israel has done abominable things, polluted what they have dedicated to YHVH. “Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.” What then can Israel offer YHVH that is holy when she has chosen her own way. It is no blessing for Israel or YHVH if she regains the land and yet has not repented.

How will YHVH address this people, “I also will choose their delusions” He states. Israel is blind and do not recognize who she is. She is scattered abroad throughout the nations, naked, oppressed as idolaters and rebellious. Yet in her blindness a remnant will find salvation in Yeshua until He is finally revealed to all at His second coming. Until then all Israel will not believe or recognized who they really are.

Romans 11:5-8

Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

In the nations where they are scattered many True Israelites are coming to faith in Yeshua. They have no idea who they are but nonetheless they are accepting the report of the gospel. “…there is a remnant…and the rest were blinded.”

Even though Israel was greatly hated and cast out yet will YHVH take away their shame. But how will YHVH do this? “…she was delivered of a man child,” This man child is the man Yeshua who offer His life for the sins of the entire world. “…or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth?” Yeshua came the first time to bring salvation to the world. This text is speaking about that second day mentioned in Jeremiah 42 which spoke concerning the second coming of Yeshua. And then will a nation be born at once in that day. “…for as soon as Zion travailed,” as soon as Yeshua step foot on Mount Zion and end the battle of the nations He will take up His kingdom on earth and a nation will be born “in that day”. See Zachariah 14. The phrase “in that day” refers to the 1000 year reign of Messiah, a thousand years is as one day to YHVH and all this will occur in that 1000 year reign of Yeshua, “in that day”.

We take for granted so called scholarly interpretations. We accept that what the scholars tells us about the people of the land has to be so because they claim to be Jews, practice Judaism and are now settled in the land thus we believe the lies. Now when it happened that these people entered the land and settled it we seek for scriptures to agree with what has happened.

Never mind reading the entire book of the prophets or the entire chapter we are quoting from and keeping everything in its context. We want to believe that YHVH has orchestrated the events of what is going on in Israel because if we don’t have an answer our Elohim is a liar. Some things will happen that we will not have an answer for until the appointed time. We must stop trying to bend the Bible to fit our distresses, our doubts and our lack of knowledge.

“…for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children,” means exactly that. Once Messiah returns to Zion then, for the second time, Israel will be gathered in. A new nation under Yeshua will be born and True Israel will return to the land. Yeshua will be their King of Kings. Has this happened yet? No!

“Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.” Is there peace yet? NO! When Yeshua returns and the true nation of Israel is born there will be peace not conflict as we see today in the land.

Zachariah 14 tells us what to look for in this new nation, the Gentiles will flow in during the feast of tabernacles to worship Yeshua. Israel will be comforted. This is not the picture of what we see today. We cannot just pluck scripture out and make it what we desire. Some think they are making YHVH look good before the world but He does not need our help. Did He not tell Daniel to shut up the book? It is quite ok to shut up the book until the revelation comes.

In order for Israel to be in the land a new nation under Yeshua all the words of the book must come to pass. Read also Matthew 24, Luke 21, the prophets and the book of Revelation to start with and see that there is a list of many set of events that must occur before the end comes. “…for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6c) We also miss the mark when we do not read Deuteronomy 28 the blessings and the curses to see if Israel is the way YHVH describes them to be. Do this and you cannot miss who True Israel is.

Unfortunately the books “Left Behind” has left the church filled with false teachings. I think of the many commentaries I had to delete because as I wrote I began to realize my train of thought was in error. I could not make the text mean what I felt it meant. Much of what I was writing about in those now deleted commentaries was stuff we have been taught to be true and just accepted them as so. We believe and did not check the work of those who purported certain things because the teachings were mainstream teachings in that church, denomination or filtered down through seminaries.

Even now as I study this topic I see clearly that this doctrine of Israel being a new nations formed in 1948 is not true. We have accepted the false teachings because prominent individuals and institutions have purported it to be so. Let us take a quick look at a familiar portion of Isaiah and see how it reiterates when Israel will be a nation again under their Messiah.

Isaiah 60:1-4

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

These verses are actually a depiction of what the prophet Zachariah spoke of in Zechariah 14 about the battle of the nations that will occur right before Yeshua comes back. Look clearly at Zechariah’s words that reflect the darkening of the sun and the darkness of the hearts of the people. Did not Yeshua ask if upon His return “will faith be found on the earth? Many will read and not understand and so doubt the truth of the word and turn from Yeshua because of wrong interpretations.

Zechariah 14:6-9

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Zechariah is giving us a clear understanding of what to look for and expect when Israel becomes a nation again. Before this occurs the earth will be darkened because something will happen to the sun, moon and stars. There will be some sort of cataclysmic environmental event that will bring on darkness or something supernatural. This is the sign of that coming “in the day.”

Then we see that this sign will usher in the Messiah. He is the living waters that will flow out from Jerusalem. We are also given an indication as to what time of year this will occur. It is during the summer season. Hence we have many references to the fig tree casting its fruits which occurs during the time of the season of the fig tree. This is like the American tradition of seeing if the groundhog cast a shadow which mark how log to the end of the winter season.

The darkness on the earth is a sign of the times that will appear prior to the return of Messiah to be “King over all the earth.” Israel will not rise again as a nation without her King at its helm. Let me repeat, ISRAEL WILL NOT BE A NATION AGAIN WITHOUT MESSIAH AS HER KING.

Everything to happen will occur as prophesied and not out of sequence. The emphasis in many of the follow scriptures are the signs that will indicate when we will be ‘in the day’ and in the season when those prophesied events will be fulfilled.

Matthew 24:29-30

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

This passage tells us the sequence of events which is not different from those events also prophesied by Zechariah concerning the time to come. Immediately after the tribulation the sun will be darkened. This is one of the signs we are to look for which will assure us the time is right. When will the sun be darkened? After the tribulation when the church is greatly persecuted and many lose their lives for the sake of the gospel the sun will darken. The 144,000 will preach the power of the gospel and many will come to faith yet losing their lives because of it.

After all this occurs Messiah will return with power and great glory to rule and reign upon the earth. The nations will be at the gates of Jerusalem and Messiah will end that great battle. In the words of Zechariah, Messiah will be “king over all the earth.” What is the sign that we are in that day? The sun will be darkened. But that is not the only sign given and we will address this in other scriptures.

Joel 2:10

The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

So we read here in Joel that the sun and moon will be dark. We know of a surety that something significant will happen to our heavenly bodies. There will be darkness covering the earth. We also know that we can expect a great earthquake and we know from Zachariah that when Yeshua returns there will be an earthquake greater than in the days of Uzziah. (Zechariah 14:5)

Joel 3:15-16

The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

How can we not see the order of events? The sign before the coming of Messiah is that darkness covers the earth. Yet it will not prevent Yeshua from returning to establish His kingdom in Zion and Jerusalem will be the place His people will return to. He will gather Israel back from the nations and be their king, He will be “the strength of the children of Israel. “Then shall Jerusalem be holy.” Messiah will never establish a kingdom on earth that is not holy. Isaiah 11:11 tells us that for the second time He will gather Israel. “The LORD will be the hope of his people,” and He will dwell in Zion with His people and not until then.

By the time Yeshua appears in the clouds all the earth will see Him and know Him to be the Son of YHVH. “Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord.” Israel who has been scattered in the nations will finally see their Messiah and they will remember who they are. When YHVH hiss for them to return they will come willingly and they will summit themselves to be ruled by their Messiah, the King of kings. Read the words of Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 34:22-26

Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it. And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.

This is the description of how it will be when Israel returns as a nation in the land when Messiah comes again and not before. They will have one shepherd, one king over them. They will be no elections for prime ministers. Yeshua will continue the reign of the Kingdom established by David. Yes, the head of the new nation of Israel will be Yeshua. YHVH will be their Elohim and they will be no atheist, false religions and no idols in the land as there is today. In this new nation there will be a covenant of peace and not what we are seeing there today. The land will receive its rain in due season. The land will flourish in Israel. We know as stated in Zechariah 14 what will happen to those nations that will not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King of Kings, but in Israel it shall be well.

Zechariah 14:16-18

And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

So we see how it will be even for the nations that remain after Yeshua returns. This is the vision of what the earth will be like when Israel becomes a nation again.

Let us look at Isaiah’s words again concerning Israel returning to the land as a nation.

Isaiah 66:7-14

Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God. Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her: That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

Proponents of Israel being a new nation formed in 1948 use this text to make that claim. Let us read it in context. It is from the seed of True Israel that the Messiah was born. How will the nation be born at once? Upon Yeshua’s return in that day shall Israel be established again. “In that day” is a reference to 1000 years is as one day to YHVH. Messiah shall reign for 1000 years. All this will occur in that day, within the 1000 years of Yeshua’s reign.

ll Kings 19:3

And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

Hezekiah asked this question of Isaiah the prophet and YHVH gave a response to the prophet, one of victory and total deliverance for Judah. The strength was in YHVH to bring forth because Assyria had besieged Judah and blasphemed the name of YHVH. In one day Judah was saved. The nations in the last days will also besieged Jerusalem and once again YHVH will bring deliverance. YHVH declares that nothing will happen to Jerusalem and for David’s sake the kingdom will continue.

ll Kings 19:34; 20:6c

For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

As in Hezekiah’s day things look bleak as it will also look bleak in the last days. Yet we are assured that YHVH has declared Zion will bring forth again though the travail will be hard and difficult. No matter how much strength is left at the time of birth YHVH will see to it that the remnant “shall yet again take root downward and bear fruit upward.” (ll Kings 19:30b)

Zechariah 14:1-4

Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

When Messiah’s feet shall touch down upon the Mount of Olives He shall rule and reign. At once a nation shall be born. “…for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.” This did not happen in 1948. All nations have not yet gathered against Jerusalem to battle. Neither has Yeshua’s feet touch down upon the Mount of Olives. Yes, the modern nation of Israel had some conflicts but they do not meet the line upon line of YHVH’s word concerning Israel’s return to the land.

Yeshua will take possession of His city, Jerusalem, which will be the capital of His kingdom. When Israel was last a kingdom they had kings as their heads, and when they return again as a true nation they will have a king once again. The two kingdoms of Israel will be united under Yeshua as the King of kings. We know from Zechariah 14 that other nations will exist on the earth during the 1000 year reign of Messiah and many will come to Jerusalem to worship Him. He will indeed be the King of kings.

We see clearly from these texts that Israel will be a nation “at once” but by the power of Yeshua. The nation of Israel today does not exist as seen in the description given in the Bible. There is no peace, there is no Messiah ruling and reigning over them. As to that time to come that indicates what to look for when Israel is a nation again let us also look at some verses in Acts 2.

Acts 2:16-21

[1] But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

Two events are mentioned here in this text. I place numbers in the text to separate the two events. The first event is what Joel prophesied about the coming of the Holy Spirit as Yeshua also made mention of this in Acts 1. He told the disciples to tarry in Jerusalem and wait for the promise of the Father. This is what has been reported in Acts 2:1-14 [1], the people were not drunk but filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Just as Joel prophesied, so it did occur. But note that the prophecy was not only about what would happen on the day of Pentecost but also what would happen “in the last days.” So we have in this first portion of Acts 2:16-21, an out pouring which is the fulfillment of the first part of Joel’s prophecy. This second part of Acts 2:19-21 is Joel’s prophecy of what will happen in the last days when Yeshua returns.

Acts 2:19-21

[2] And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Joel is now telling us about the signs to look for when Yeshua returns. These are two different days as seen in the two baskets of Jeremiah 24. The first day in Joel’s prophecy is the coming of the Holy Spirit and the second prophecy is the second day which will be the return of Yeshua.

Joel 2:28-32

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

These are two separate events and the first event has been fulfilled – “… will I pour out my spirit.” So what is the sign of the second event? Our heavenly bodies will not give light to the earth. We shall be in darkness. Something will occur naturally or supernaturally to cause the heavenly bodies to lose their illumination. It is referring to what signs to look for when Yeshua returns.

The signs of the coming of Yeshua have been reiterated throughout the Bible. When Yeshua returns and all the earth sees and knows that He is the Son of Elohim every knee shall bow and confess that He is Lord. And whosoever shall call on the name of Yeshua shall be saved – Jew and Gentile. Yeshua will deliver Mount Zion and Jerusalem from the invasion of the nations and the remnant Yeshua will gather back to the land. When does this all happen.

Matthew 24:29-31

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Yes, immediately after the tribulation and not before. After we see the sign which is the darkening of the earth we know that Yeshua’s imminent return is nigh. After Yeshua appears and the earth is subdued under Him then He will gather Israel from the nations, the four winds. Those settlers that are in the land are not Israel. Israel has yet to be gathered thus there is not presently a nation of Israel dwelling in the land. It is only a false nation. Everything in order just as YHVH spoke.

Matthew 24:32-34

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Such verses are use to purport that Israel is a fig tree. This parable is only an illustration that helps us recognize when these events will occur. “…ye know that summer is nigh,” is the true understanding of this text. When the fig tree shoots out its leaves we know that summer is near. Like the groundhog when it casts a shadow we say there is only six more weeks of winter.

“So likewise” means we can make a comparison with one things and another. This is not saying that Israel is a fig tree and she has put forth leaves as in meaning she became a new nation. What is the meaning of “know that it is near” that this text is speaking about? It is speaking about the summer season, the season we can look to for Yeshua’s return. This is the time we gather in the harvest.

YHVH gave Israel a set of signs to look for so we know when the new month and new year begins. Daniel 7:25 tells us, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

We have indeed lost our YHVH given calendar. But we are given another sign to watch for that will help us recognize the time of Messiah’s return. It shall occur around the beginning of the summer season. Let us get some more clues of this specific sign.

Luke 21:24-33

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Note that none of these sequences deviate from the other. Jerusalem trodden down by the nations, the sun darkened and then we see Yeshua returning. This is backed up with a parable that gives us a natural occurrence so we can understand a spiritual truth. This parable is a similitude of something that will happen. The fig tree and all the trees are not referring to Israel as a nation verses other nations. It is a picture of trees that are an indication of what season we are in. This fig tree as well as certain other trees of those same characteristics is an indication according to the time of their budding forth what season it is.

This is a specific reference to the fig tree because it is one of the first trees to shoot forth its leaves in the land. So we can compare the fig tree which buds in the summer to trees that do not. The focus is on the summer season not the fall or winter or spring seasons. There is no mistake of the time of year or the season. Let’s take a closer look at this fig tree and what else occurs that tells us when the time is.

Revelation 6:12:-17

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Please note again that the events noted here is not out of sequence with other passages cited. YHVH is an Elohim of order. But let us look to the specific verse that states, “even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs”. First, let us determine what can cause a fig tree to cast it figs: lack of water, lack of pollination, disease, weather, etc.

We have noted from the majority of text cited above that the earth will be in a state of darkness. We also know if we read the book of Revelation many devastating events will occur upon the earth: wormwood will make the waters to be foul, bitter, the earth will become parched, there will be drought all over, and the lack of sunlight, darkness covering the entire earth and many will perish beast and man etc. The earth by this time will have gone through much cataclysmic devastation.

Without water, pollination, diseases ravishing the earth and with significant changes in the weather we know how the fig tree might be impacted. It will be difficult to tell time when the earth goes into darkness. But yet we are told that if we watch the fig tree we will yet know by this sign, when it cast its untimely figs that the time is nigh for the return of Messiah.

How do we go from signs about earthly seasons to Israel being depicted as a fig tree? None of the verses being wheedled as indication that Israel became a new nation in 1948 is of a true interpretation.

The Bible is clear when Israel shall return to the land. It is when YHVH hiss for her from out of the nations after Yeshua returns to rule and reign. Israel will not be a nation again until she acknowledges Yeshua as her Messiah, her priest, and her King. Yes, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord. The land will be made holy and when the people return they too will be holy in the land.

Noah did prophesy that Japheth will be enlarge and dwell in the tents, meaning accepting the faith of Shem. But Jeremiah 51:27-29 tells us that there is a reason why Japheth’s descendants, Ashchenaz, are in the land. There is a purpose that must be performed against Babylon. Babylon is the united name given to the Gentile nations of the earth that will come against Jerusalem. This is a conglomeration of all the nations.

What do we do about this? Nothing! Not one word shall return to YHVH void; it will do what it sets out to do. Knowing the truth will help the faithful know what to do and how to respond to the events in their times. Knowing this truth should comfort True Israel to remain where YHVH has placed them in order to protect them from the events to come. This does not require action only understanding. YHVH has indeed removed His people from out of the harm’s way.

The Church has promoted this people in the land and raised billions of dollars to protect them. It help them fund their security measures against other nations and have in essence put this false nation of Israel in position to cause the world to come up against Jerusalem. The nation of Israel has the greatest security system in the world. It is fiercely defended by many nations. I keep calling it the nation of Israel because that is the name it has been given yet it is false.

What is it that the enemies of YHVH and His people are really after? I believe they want the land and the city of Jerusalem so they can put their name there. Satan could not rise above the throne of YHVH in heaven so he was thrown out. In the Garden of Eden He tempted Adam and Eve with rebellion and doubt claiming that they could be gods.

We find the fallen angels descending in Genesis 6 and mingling their DNA with the daughters of men and polluting the earth to prevent Messiah’s birth. YHVH rid the world of them and all that they had corrupted. They tried to rule in earth by pretending to be gods. YHVH destroyed those unholy seeds and only Noah and his family were spared.

Then by Genesis 10 we find Nimrod the fourth generation from Noah polluting his DNA to become a might hunter. By Genesis 11 we have the people ruled by Nimrod trying to make a tower “…whose top may reach unto heaven” so they could make a name for themselves. They tried to rule from directly under YHVH’s throne but YHVH destroyed them.

Isaiah 14:12-14

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

You see, they know by now they can’t remove YHVH from His throne so they are willing to rule anywhere they can. They can’t rule in heaven or directly under heaven so now they want to rule in the earth in Jerusalem. Satan tried to tempt Yeshua in the wilderness to give up His Sonship but He would not so he moved the hearts of men to crucified Yeshua.

1 Corinthians 2:7-8

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Now they want YHVH’s holy city, Jerusalem, and His land so they can put their name on it. This is not about oil or the riches of the land. This is about putting their name on what belongs to YHVH.

Remember when Ezekiel was taken into the temple to see how the people had desecrated it? After seeing the idolatrous acts of the people in the temple Ezekiel tells us that the Spirit of YHVH departed from “that house.”

Ezekiel 10:18

Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.

The enemy wants YHVH’s throne, His city, His Son, His people, His land, His paradise, His everything.

NOTE: These scriptures have all pointed to the shooting forth of the fig tree and all other trees of that season that tells us when it is summer. This is the sign of Yeshua’s return. We are to look for Messiah to return in the summer season and when the figs shoot forth tells us it has begun. Summer is also the season when the wheat is harvested and the Bible also speaks about the wheat and the tares. The wheat is those that call upon the name of Yeshua, the church. (See Matthew 3:12; 13:25, 29, Luke 3:17; 22:31)The church is on the threshing floor and the winds of time will drive the chaff away.

We do not know the day or hour but we know the season when these things shall be. All these things must come to pass because YHVH cannot do anything with the earth while it is defiled and the people thereof. Yeshua’s kingdom will come at a time when the earth have gone through much spoiling but for a 1000 years it will remain and then the end will come and eternal life.

Isaiah 24:5-6

The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.



The Bible Does Not Say Israel Will Be A Nation In 1948

Matthew 24:32-36

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Many use this passage and similar passages to claim that it was prophesied that Israel would become a new nation in 1948 and the Jews would return to the land. We know that whatever the meaning of this reference to the fig tree is, in that generation, we should look for the return of Messiah. Does the interpretation of this text imply that Israel would be a nation again in 1948? According to this text the reference to the fig tree is actually about the season when we can expect Yeshua to return. This has nothing to do with Israel as a nation.

The fig tree is representative of a specific tree that is known particularly to bud at the beginning of the summer in Israel. The summer is the season in which one should look for the return of Yeshua. This mentioning of the fig tree has nothing to do with Israel as a people but rather it is about a specific fruit tree of the land which is known for its time of shooting forth. The very mention of the fig tree tells you much about what season we are in.

For example, the Biblical year begins with the first new moon after the barley is ripe in Israel. If the barley is ripe then the following new moon is Hodesh Ha-Aviv and if it is not ripe then they must wait another month before declaring a new year. It is the same with the sign of the fig tree putting forth leaves that would indicate summer is beginning. The emphasis is not the fig tree but rather on what time of year it shoots forth its leaves.

Luke 21:29-33

And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Again we have mention of a “fig tree, and all the trees” because we are being guided to take note of the fig tree and when it shoots forth in its season. Our attention is being drawn to all the trees that shoot forth at the same time as the fig tree. We are to make a distinction as to when they bud forth. “When they now shoot forth” is stated to draw our attention to when specific trees begin to bud forth in the summer at the same exact time as the fig tree. In other words, if you don’t see the fig tree but you see another tree that blooms or shoot forth its leaves at the exact same time each year, as the fig tree, you can still identify the season by this characteristic of those other trees.

I have read many scripture verses that have been cited claiming Israel is a fig tree and that it will be a nation in 1948. This is clearly not true. Many false or unlearnt Bible scholars’ makes this claim based on the mentioning of the fig tree. The Bible is clear that Israel is a ‘green olive tree.’ (See Psalms 52:8, Jeremiah 11:16, Romans 11) Let me discuss a prominent text in Jeremiah that is cited the most to claim Israel is a fig tree.

Jeremiah 24

The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon. One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad. Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart. And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt: And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.

Jeremiah was given a vision of two baskets to consider. The vision was a similitude of something that was happening in reality in Jeremiah’s time. First, note that the text cited in Jeremiah is not referring to Israel as a fig tree but as the fruits of the fig tree. There is a difference as Israel is actually referred to as an olive tree throughout the Bible as mentioned above. An olive tree is an olive and a fig tree is a fig tree thus an olive tree can’t produce figs and neither can figs produce olive berries.

James 3:12

Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

Let’s not mix fig and olives so to speak. The reference to figs in Jeremiah 24 is speaking about the maturity of the fruit and the time it comes into season – that being the summer time. Up to Jeremiah’s day Israel had been lead by judges, prophets and by kings and finally the last kingdom, the southern kingdom of Judah, is being taken into captivity. This is a nation that should have been mature in the law and keepers of the law but instead they were being plucked up and scattered. They should have been planted firmly by this time in their history. Israel is not a fig tree but only like the mature fruit on the tree which bears it fruit in due season. Israel is also referred to as the firstfruits which belong to YHVH. They were given a mandate to be holy and be that light to the heathen nations so those nations would come to see YHVH as the Most High Elohim and repent and return to Him.

The mature fig, rather than being harvested and eaten, it is being plucked up off the land and scattered. This is the image the Bible wants us to have. In the fullness of the harvest the figs are gathered and should be expected to be eaten but no, these figs are being scattered.

YHVH shows Jeremiah two baskets of figs, one basket having good figs and the other basket had very naughty figs. These two baskets were set before the temple of YHVH. This means the figs were gathered in Jerusalem where the temple was. This is where the figs originated from – in the land. It was the first fruit of the season. The first fruits are always presented to YHVH but instead these figs are taken into captivity.

We can make a quick comparison: in Jeremiah’s day the firstfruits of Israel were taken into captivity and in Yeshua’s day they were blinded.

In the text above the first basket of figs was taken captive into Babylon with their king the true heir to the throne of David, Jehoiachin.

The other basket had the naughty figs and could not be eaten – in other words these figs, also a tithe unto YHVH would not survive because they were naughty. We know that the tithe is to be eaten – a figure of speech here – presented to YHVH. The firstfruits, first ripe are holy unto YHVH.

Deuteronomy 14:22-23

Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.

The firstfruits of the land are from the fig tree meant to be offered up as a tithe. Yet this first basket of the firstfruits of Jerusalem is being sent into captivity for a specific time.

Hosea 9:10

I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.

You see the first ripe of Israel were shameful because of their idolatry and treatment of the orphans and widows. These who were holy unto YHVH had polluted themselves and the land. That verse in Hosea is not speaking about the tree but about the ‘first ripe’ fruit from one of the first producing fruit trees in the land, the fig tree. The figs from this first basket will be eaten, returned back to YHVH, at a later time upon their return to Jerusalem after their 70 years of captivity. In other words the tithe, or Israel as a tithe, will be acceptable upon their return to the land.

This is the law of YHVH as spoken to Moses in Deuteronomy 14:22-23. The tithe is to be eaten, consumed. Now in Jeremiah 24:2 it clearly states that the second basket of figs “...could not be eaten, they were so bad.” The reason this second basket of figs could not be eaten is because they refused to go with the figs of the first basket. This reference to figs implies that all the figs were the first fruits of the nation of Israel. All these figs were harvested at the same time, the first harvested.

YHVH told Jeremiah that Israel must to go into captivity but some went and others remained. The second basket of figs is not only naughty and can’t be eaten, presented to YHVH, because they are so very evil. They are willfully disobedient to YHVH. The first basket of figs is willing but the second basket of figs is disobedient on two levels which we will discuss later.

Let me speak about the baskets for a moment. Remember in Genesis 40 Joseph had the opportunity to interpret the dreams of two of the king’s officers. The baker had a dream about three baskets and here is what Joseph stated the interpretation of the baskets was.

Genesis 40:18

And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days:

There is consistency in the word of YHVH. I believe YHVH is telling us that the events in this chapter is about what will occur in two days, or rather two different time periods. Remember that 1000 years is as a day to YHVH and a day as 1000 years. The figs in the first basket of good figs are occurring during the time of the Babylonian captivity. Even though we will see that this also refers to those who refused to go into captivity or stay put in the land we will see that it is also speaking about a time to come later on. I believe this second day to come in which this text is referring to will be the time of Messiah’s 1000 year reign.

Hear the words of YHVH clearly: “Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.” Do you hear YHVH’s words? My last commentary “YHVH Meant It Unto Good” speaks clearly about this very thing. When YHVH removes the people out of the land it is also for their own good. There are two purposes of this captivity and two separate occurrences referring to the two baskets and at two different times.

YHVH has not forgotten Israel; He will again acknowledge those that have been carried away captive throughout the earth even unto the four winds of the earth.

On the one hand YHVH must keep true to His covenant vows that if Israel sin they will be spewed out of the land. On the other hand YHVH uses the opportunity of taking Israel out of the land in order to preserve them – for their own good. This first basket of figs was being removed for the purpose of preserving the bloodline of True Israel from which the Messiah will come.

Now in this first basket taken away was Johiakim King of Judah who was the true heir to the throne. YHVH acknowledges the first basket of figs and they are good figs. Though the world wants to think that True Israel is evil in fact YHVH says they are good figs – good fruit. Remember all Israel had committed idolatry but YHVH removed those that were obedient to go into captivity of which He calls them ‘good figs’ - the obedient figs.

This remnant will return by decree of Cyrus after 70 years and so it was. Remember that those few that did stay in the land or returned during Nehemiah’s time married women from the surrounding nations and they had children with them. The people had begun to worship the idols of other nations and the next step would have been too intermarried with them. YHVH plucked them out to preserve them from this intermingling. Remember that it is from the tribe of Judah that the Messiah would come so the DNA had to be preserved. The Samarians were already an intermingling of the northern tribe and other nations assimilated in with them by the Assyrians.

Nehemiah 13:23-31

In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab: And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people. And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves. Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin. Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives? And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son in law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me. Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites. Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, every one in his business; And for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the firstfruits. Remember me, O my God, for good.

This is what Ezra and Nehemiah found when they returned after 70 years to the land.

So we have dealt a bit with the good figs and know that they were the first figs picked and they were good figs because they obeyed YHVH and went into captivity to be brought back later.

Why the reference to the naughty evil figs? The understanding of this is twofold. Nebuchadnezzar replaced the true king with a false king. Zedekiah was the puppet king on the throne of Judah and he ruled over the second basket that did not go into captivity – the evil figs. He replaced the true king thus the kingdom was false. During the second day or occurrence of this prophecy the kingdom will also be a false kingdom being replaced by those that are not the true heirs. This is one part of the future prophecy. The reality is that those who say they are Jew but are not have been promoted in this modern age to settle the land and to call it their own in 1948.

The prophecy is twofold, what will happen in Jeremiah’s time and what will happen in a time to come. Just like in Joseph’s interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream the baskets represents a specific number of days.

True Israelites are taken captive out of the land and True Israelites returns to the land by order of a king. The King of kings sent them out and a king, Cyrus, brought them back. It will be a king who will again bring the true remnant back – Yeshua. YHVH’s dealings are with kings.

YHVH tells us what to look for when the true kingdom comes back into the land. First, YHVH tells us how to identify the true inhabitants of the kingdom from the false inhabitants of the false kingdom.

“And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.” This has not happen even today. The people in the land do not know YHVH for if they did they would know His Son. They cannot return to YHVH with their whole heart because they are not of the green olive tree. Most modern day Israelis would tell you to your face they are atheist. They do not believe in YHVH. And the Orthodox and all others do not love YHVH with their whole heart because if they did they would accept His Son. These people are not blind they just are not of the green olive tree. The enemy has planted them in the land just like Nebuchadnezzar planted Zedekiah in Jerusalem on the throne that did not belong to him.

Jeremiah 24:8 tells us clearly that Nebuchadnezzar replaced the true king with Zedekiah. You see the true good figs were removed and what was left was a renegade remnant that refused to go into captivity in Babylon. Hear what YHVH spoke unto them. He tells us that those who are sent out of the land unto the Chaldeans, He will bring again.

Then YHVH said, “And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt: And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.” As it was in the first day so shall it be in the second day. Those that are of the false kingdom shall be consumed from off the land.

YHVH is telling us what will happen to those that did not go into captivity. The people remaining in Judah sent Jeremiah to inquire of YHVH on their behalf asking Him whether they should go into Egypt to escape the Babylonians.

Jeremiah 42:7-19

And it came to pass after ten days, that the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah. Then called he Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces which were with him, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, And said unto them, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, unto whom ye sent me to present your supplication before him; If ye will still abide in this land, then will I build you, and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up: for I repent me of the evil that I have done unto you. Be not afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom ye are afraid; be not afraid of him, saith the LORD: for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand. And I will shew mercies unto you, that he may have mercy upon you, and cause you to return to your own land. But if ye say, We will not dwell in this land, neither obey the voice of the LORD your God, Saying, No; but we will go into the land of Egypt, where we shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the trumpet, nor have hunger of bread; and there will we dwell: And now therefore hear the word of the LORD, ye remnant of Judah; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; If ye wholly set your faces to enter into Egypt, and go to sojourn there; Then it shall come to pass, that the sword, which ye feared, shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine, whereof ye were afraid, shall follow close after you there in Egypt; and there ye shall die. So shall it be with all the men that set their faces to go into Egypt to sojourn there; they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that I will bring upon them. For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As mine anger and my fury hath been poured forth upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; so shall my fury be poured forth upon you, when ye shall enter into Egypt: and ye shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and ye shall see this place no more. The LORD hath said concerning you, O ye remnant of Judah; Go ye not into Egypt: know certainly that I have admonished you this day.

YHVH warns the people that remain under Zedekiah, the false king, to remain in the land and He, YHVH, will take care of them. But the people refused to obey YHVH and we know that they went into Egypt and were destroyed. Continue to read Jeremiah 43-44 and see how those people responded to YHVH’s words and what became of them.

Jeremiah 43:1-4

And it came to pass, that when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking unto all the people all the words of the LORD their God, for which the LORD their God had sent him to them, even all these words, Then spake Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the proud men, saying unto Jeremiah, Thou speakest falsely: the LORD our God hath not sent thee to say, Go not into Egypt to sojourn there: But Baruch the son of Neriah setteth thee on against us, for to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they might put us to death, and carry us away captives into Babylon. So Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, obeyed not the voice of the LORD, to dwell in the land of Judah.

The issue of Zedekiah is prominent in this story of the two baskets because the second basket of figs is wiped out. The false kingdom is destroyed in Jeremiah’s day and it will be I the next day to come. But this is only the first day which represents the two baskets being interpreted as days.

We see from this passage often used to represent Israel as a fig tree it does not hold water. Israel is only the figs in the baskets.

Another portion of scripture used to state that Israel is a fig tree is Luke 13:6-9

“He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.”

The emphasis of this portion of scripture is on the fruit not the tree. Here is a tree that has not produced fruit. After putting so much time into dressing the tree it had no fruit. The man in the parable is looking for fruit and is only concern about the fruit. He has no regard for the tree because he ordered it to be cut down. This fig tree is not Israel as Israel is referred to as a green olive tree and one to be pruned not chopped down.

Romans 11:16-17

For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Jeremiah 11:16

The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.

You see, as a green olive tree Israel is fair and of goodly fruit whose branches of unbelief are broken off.

Romans 11:19-21

Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Also John 15 refers to the vine being pruned not chopped down when it does not bear fruit. Israel is the olive tree not the fig tree. Israel and the church are referred to as fruits when it comes to sin and the nature of godly character and virtues.

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Matthew 7:16-20

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

The emphasis here in these verses is the fruits not the tree. They are known by their fruit not by the tree. “…every good tree” could be any kind of tree which brings forth good fruit. The law is a good tree, the Spirit of YHVH is a good tree, the kingdom of YHVH is a good tree, and marriage could also be a tree and bring forth good fruit. Israel is also a tree and like or as a fig tree can bring forth good or bad fruits. The fig tree is one of the first fruit trees to bloom in the Land and thus Israel is seen as the first fruits of the nations. In the reference to the figs taken into captivity into Babylon we see those figs coming back. The tree was not hewed down. True Israel will return to the land again, the tree shall be hewed down.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of theFather, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost Matthew 28 : 19

Matthew 21:17-19

And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there. Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

The emphasis is placed on Yeshua being hungry and seeking fruit from the fig tree and finding none. We have a fig tree that actually have leaves on it so it is a tree with no production. This can be seen also like the false kingdom that bloom into a nation but produces no fruits as described by the prophets. The focus is the fruit. Israel is a green olive tree and only the branches are broken off. The olive tree is never chopped down nor utterly destroyed.

This story in Matthew 21 is not about Israel but about being hungry. Yeshua also uses this event to teach about having faith when you pray. Imagine the creator of the entire world including this tree and it could not even produce a fruit for its creator when He passed by. Thus it was cursed.

Let’s look at the deeper meaning of these passages already discussed. It is not just about Israel but also about Jerusalem. Look at the great undertaking to rebuild the city of Jerusalem when the captives returned from Babylon. YHVH is not only focused on Israel but also on Jerusalem the city. This beloved city of YHVH is also a sign as to what is to come. When YHVH asks us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem He meant for us to do just that.

Much hinges on the peace of Jerusalem. When Jerusalem is besieged by all the nations in the world we will know that Yeshua’s return is imminent. Praying for the peace of that city means the world continues, but when that city is besieged by the nations of the earth we know the end of this age is nigh upon us. “Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?” (Ecclesiastes 7:17)

We must look to understand what will happen to Jerusalem in order to understand when Israel will be a nation again.

Luke 19:41-44

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

Here is a verse used to speak about Jerusalem and the peace of that city. He said that the future things that will occur are hid from the eyes of those at that present time. He is actually speaking about the city of Jerusalem not about Israel the people. Yeshua “wept over it,” the city, not the people of the city. “For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another.”

Yeshua is speaking about Jerusalem in a future time and He states “thy children within thee”, or rather the inhabitants within the city not Israel the people. It means whoever is dwelling within Jerusalem at the time.

Let’s look at the text that follows. Yeshua afterward go to the temple and find people selling their wares and this is what He said. “It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.” He is speaking about the temple being a house of prayer.

So we have Yeshua speaking about both the temple and the city Jerusalem not about the Jews/Israelites. The battle before Yeshua returns is against Jerusalem not Israel. Jerusalem is that great city that the enemy wants to possess. Why?

The enemy wants that city and this is why YHVH tells us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem not its inhabitants. The true heirs to that land is scattered to the four winds and are kept there for their safety. The peace of Jerusalem has everything to do with the end of days. As long as the peace of Jerusalem is maintained the earth continues.

Yeshua also said, “My house is the house of prayer.” What exactly are we missing here? The prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah both spoke about the house being YHVH’s house of prayer. Isaiah 56:7, Jeremiah 7:11 and Matthew 21:13 and Mark 11:17 also reiterate this.

Isaiah 56:7

Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

Jeremiah 7:11

Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD.

It is not the people Israel that the world is seeking to destroy but rather the house and that city of YHVH which is called by His name or bears His name. It is the ancient act of rebellion as in the days of Satan and Nimrod. Satan wanted to usurp YHVH’s throne and Nimrod wanted to build a tower so high into heaven and to make a name for his self rather than to worship YHVH’s name. (Genesis 11:4) You see the enemies of YHVH want to obliterate His name from the face of the earth since they cannot do it in heaven. It is “this house, which is called by my name” that they want to obliterate or write their names on.

Both the temple and Jerusalem belongs to YHVH and these are both affixed to the earth and so the enemy’s desire is to take them from Him and rule and reign in His stead. In Milton’s book Paradise Lost Satan declares, “Better to rule in hell than serve in heaven.” Lucifer, Satan, the devil, that old serpent and dragon wants to rule and he does not care from where. If he can’t rule one place he will settle for another. “True Israel is a target used to get to YHVH. Pollute Israel the people and they think they will hinder YHVH’s plans. They could not stop Messiah from coming the first time but they are hoping to hinder His return.

“…but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.” This “time of thy visitation” is the day of the second basket mentioned in Jeremiah 42.

What is hid, that second day, the second basket wherein the figs are naughty, evil, so very evil. Yeshua is speaking to Jerusalem that beloved city. “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it.” (Luke 19:41) The reference to “A trench,” is actually a siege that will encompass Jerusalem greater than in the days of Nebuchadnezzar. This is brought about by those nations that come up against Jerusalem in the last days. They will encamp around Jerusalem with the host of their armies and there lay Jerusalem and its inhabitants waste. Scholars do not want to see the actual city of Jerusalem but rather spiritualize it as representing Israel.

In this second day as in the second basket representing another day, it is noted that Zedekiah was a false puppet king over the remnant that remain of Israel. His strings were being pulled by Babylon as it will be in the last days. The false inhabitants of Jerusalem at that time will also have their strings pulled by Babylon, the nations united. Yes, they are being promoted by Babylon and the false church. They are puppets and don’t know it. Their false pride is due to their technology and superior security measures they have in place.

Let us not read into this text that Israel will be a nation again during this time because the text reads “and thy children within thee.” The words convey children of a city, its citizens or inhabitants. Those who dwell in Jerusalem at this time are the children within. Those that currently dwell in the land are not Israelites but settlers from the tribe of Japheth. They are still the children within. Not the children of YHVH but the children of that city.

Unfortunately as the second basket in Jeremiah’s day perished so will those in this second day of events.

The afore cited passages of scripture noted above neither state that Israel is a fig tree and they do not state that Israel will return to the land and be a nation again in 1948.

Another text cited by proponents of modern day Israel being a Biblically mandated nation founded in 1948 is Romans 11:25-26:

“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”

This passage does not speak about Israel becoming a nation again as some purport. This will not happen until the gospel is preached to all Gentiles. Not until after the tribulation period when the 144,000 preach the power of the gospel will the fullness of the Gentiles occur. After this Jerusalem will be under siege and then Messiah will return and rule and reign from Mount Zion. Not until then will Israel be in the land again as a nation. Not until, “There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer.” Israel is not yet saved because their Deliverer has not return to Zion and ungodliness has not been taken away from Jacob. All the ducks is not yet lined up.

Here is another text often used to make claims that Israel became a new nation in 1948.

Isaiah 66:1-13

Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompence to his enemies. Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God. Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her: That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

This text is not at all difficult to understand. Anyone who thinks that YHVH needs the temple or Jerusalem to rule on earth is completely mistaken. “The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?.” He is speaking to Israel telling her that He does not need these things. YHVH allowed Solomon to build this house because it was David’s heart to do so. YHVH has no need of these structures.

Israel has done abominable things, polluted what they have dedicated to YHVH. “Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.” What then can Israel offer YHVH that is holy when she has chosen her own way. It is no blessing for Israel or YHVH if she regains the land and yet has not repented.

How will YHVH address this people, “I also will choose their delusions” He states. Israel is blind and do not recognize who she is. She is scattered abroad throughout the nations, naked, oppressed as idolaters and rebellious. Yet in her blindness a remnant will find salvation in Yeshua until He is finally revealed to all at His second coming. Until then all Israel will not believe or recognized who they really are.

Romans 11:5-8

Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

In the nations where they are scattered many True Israelites are coming to faith in Yeshua. They have no idea who they are but nonetheless they are accepting the report of the gospel. “…there is a remnant…and the rest were blinded.”

Even though Israel was greatly hated and cast out yet will YHVH take away their shame. But how will YHVH do this? “…she was delivered of a man child,” This man child is the man Yeshua who offer His life for the sins of the entire world. “…or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth?” Yeshua came the first time to bring salvation to the world. This text is speaking about that second day mentioned in Jeremiah 42 which spoke concerning the second coming of Yeshua. And then will a nation be born at once in that day. “…for as soon as Zion travailed,” as soon as Yeshua step foot on Mount Zion and end the battle of the nations He will take up His kingdom on earth and a nation will be born “in that day”. See Zachariah 14. The phrase “in that day” refers to the 1000 year reign of Messiah, a thousand years is as one day to YHVH and all this will occur in that 1000 year reign of Yeshua, “in that day”.

We take for granted so called scholarly interpretations. We accept that what the scholars tells us about the people of the land has to be so because they claim to be Jews, practice Judaism and are now settled in the land thus we believe the lies. Now when it happened that these people entered the land and settled it we seek for scriptures to agree with what has happened.

Never mind reading the entire book of the prophets or the entire chapter we are quoting from and keeping everything in its context. We want to believe that YHVH has orchestrated the events of what is going on in Israel because if we don’t have an answer our Elohim is a liar. Some things will happen that we will not have an answer for until the appointed time. We must stop trying to bend the Bible to fit our distresses, our doubts and our lack of knowledge.

“…for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children,” means exactly that. Once Messiah returns to Zion then, for the second time, Israel will be gathered in. A new nation under Yeshua will be born and True Israel will return to the land. Yeshua will be their King of Kings. Has this happened yet? No!

“Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.” Is there peace yet? NO! When Yeshua returns and the true nation of Israel is born there will be peace not conflict as we see today in the land.

Zachariah 14 tells us what to look for in this new nation, the Gentiles will flow in during the feast of tabernacles to worship Yeshua. Israel will be comforted. This is not the picture of what we see today. We cannot just pluck scripture out and make it what we desire. Some think they are making YHVH look good before the world but He does not need our help. Did He not tell Daniel to shut up the book? It is quite ok to shut up the book until the revelation comes.

In order for Israel to be in the land a new nation under Yeshua all the words of the book must come to pass. Read also Matthew 24, Luke 21, the prophets and the book of Revelation to start with and see that there is a list of many set of events that must occur before the end comes. “…for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6c) We also miss the mark when we do not read Deuteronomy 28 the blessings and the curses to see if Israel is the way YHVH describes them to be. Do this and you cannot miss who True Israel is.

Unfortunately the books “Left Behind” has left the church filled with false teachings. I think of the many commentaries I had to delete because as I wrote I began to realize my train of thought was in error. I could not make the text mean what I felt it meant. Much of what I was writing about in those now deleted commentaries was stuff we have been taught to be true and just accepted them as so. We believe and did not check the work of those who purported certain things because the teachings were mainstream teachings in that church, denomination or filtered down through seminaries.

Even now as I study this topic I see clearly that this doctrine of Israel being a new nations formed in 1948 is not true. We have accepted the false teachings because prominent individuals and institutions have purported it to be so. Let us take a quick look at a familiar portion of Isaiah and see how it reiterates when Israel will be a nation again under their Messiah.

Isaiah 60:1-4

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

These verses are actually a depiction of what the prophet Zachariah spoke of in Zechariah 14 about the battle of the nations that will occur right before Yeshua comes back. Look clearly at Zechariah’s words that reflect the darkening of the sun and the darkness of the hearts of the people. Did not Yeshua ask if upon His return “will faith be found on the earth? Many will read and not understand and so doubt the truth of the word and turn from Yeshua because of wrong interpretations.

Zechariah 14:6-9

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Zechariah is giving us a clear understanding of what to look for and expect when Israel becomes a nation again. Before this occurs the earth will be darkened because something will happen to the sun, moon and stars. There will be some sort of cataclysmic environmental event that will bring on darkness or something supernatural. This is the sign of that coming “in the day.”

Then we see that this sign will usher in the Messiah. He is the living waters that will flow out from Jerusalem. We are also given an indication as to what time of year this will occur. It is during the summer season. Hence we have many references to the fig tree casting its fruits which occurs during the time of the season of the fig tree. This is like the American tradition of seeing if the groundhog cast a shadow which mark how log to the end of the winter season.

The darkness on the earth is a sign of the times that will appear prior to the return of Messiah to be “King over all the earth.” Israel will not rise again as a nation without her King at its helm. Let me repeat, ISRAEL WILL NOT BE A NATION AGAIN WITHOUT MESSIAH AS HER KING.

Everything to happen will occur as prophesied and not out of sequence. The emphasis in many of the follow scriptures are the signs that will indicate when we will be ‘in the day’ and in the season when those prophesied events will be fulfilled.

Matthew 24:29-30

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

This passage tells us the sequence of events which is not different from those events also prophesied by Zechariah concerning the time to come. Immediately after the tribulation the sun will be darkened. This is one of the signs we are to look for which will assure us the time is right. When will the sun be darkened? After the tribulation when the church is greatly persecuted and many lose their lives for the sake of the gospel the sun will darken. The 144,000 will preach the power of the gospel and many will come to faith yet losing their lives because of it.

After all this occurs Messiah will return with power and great glory to rule and reign upon the earth. The nations will be at the gates of Jerusalem and Messiah will end that great battle. In the words of Zechariah, Messiah will be “king over all the earth.” What is the sign that we are in that day? The sun will be darkened. But that is not the only sign given and we will address this in other scriptures.

Joel 2:10

The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

So we read here in Joel that the sun and moon will be dark. We know of a surety that something significant will happen to our heavenly bodies. There will be darkness covering the earth. We also know that we can expect a great earthquake and we know from Zachariah that when Yeshua returns there will be an earthquake greater than in the days of Uzziah. (Zechariah 14:5)

Joel 3:15-16

The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

How can we not see the order of events? The sign before the coming of Messiah is that darkness covers the earth. Yet it will not prevent Yeshua from returning to establish His kingdom in Zion and Jerusalem will be the place His people will return to. He will gather Israel back from the nations and be their king, He will be “the strength of the children of Israel. “Then shall Jerusalem be holy.” Messiah will never establish a kingdom on earth that is not holy. Isaiah 11:11 tells us that for the second time He will gather Israel. “The LORD will be the hope of his people,” and He will dwell in Zion with His people and not until then.

By the time Yeshua appears in the clouds all the earth will see Him and know Him to be the Son of YHVH. “Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord.” Israel who has been scattered in the nations will finally see their Messiah and they will remember who they are. When YHVH hiss for them to return they will come willingly and they will summit themselves to be ruled by their Messiah, the King of kings. Read the words of Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 34:22-26

Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it. And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.

This is the description of how it will be when Israel returns as a nation in the land when Messiah comes again and not before. They will have one shepherd, one king over them. They will be no elections for prime ministers. Yeshua will continue the reign of the Kingdom established by David. Yes, the head of the new nation of Israel will be Yeshua. YHVH will be their Elohim and they will be no atheist, false religions and no idols in the land as there is today. In this new nation there will be a covenant of peace and not what we are seeing there today. The land will receive its rain in due season. The land will flourish in Israel. We know as stated in Zechariah 14 what will happen to those nations that will not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King of Kings, but in Israel it shall be well.

Zechariah 14:16-18

And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

So we see how it will be even for the nations that remain after Yeshua returns. This is the vision of what the earth will be like when Israel becomes a nation again.

Let us look at Isaiah’s words again concerning Israel returning to the land as a nation.

Isaiah 66:7-14

Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God. Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her: That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

Proponents of Israel being a new nation formed in 1948 use this text to make that claim. Let us read it in context. It is from the seed of True Israel that the Messiah was born. How will the nation be born at once? Upon Yeshua’s return in that day shall Israel be established again. “In that day” is a reference to 1000 years is as one day to YHVH. Messiah shall reign for 1000 years. All this will occur in that day, within the 1000 years of Yeshua’s reign.

ll Kings 19:3

And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

Hezekiah asked this question of Isaiah the prophet and YHVH gave a response to the prophet, one of victory and total deliverance for Judah. The strength was in YHVH to bring forth because Assyria had besieged Judah and blasphemed the name of YHVH. In one day Judah was saved. The nations in the last days will also besieged Jerusalem and once again YHVH will bring deliverance. YHVH declares that nothing will happen to Jerusalem and for David’s sake the kingdom will continue.

ll Kings 19:34; 20:6c

For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

As in Hezekiah’s day things look bleak as it will also look bleak in the last days. Yet we are assured that YHVH has declared Zion will bring forth again though the travail will be hard and difficult. No matter how much strength is left at the time of birth YHVH will see to it that the remnant “shall yet again take root downward and bear fruit upward.” (ll Kings 19:30b)

Zechariah 14:1-4

Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

When Messiah’s feet shall touch down upon the Mount of Olives He shall rule and reign. At once a nation shall be born. “…for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.” This did not happen in 1948. All nations have not yet gathered against Jerusalem to battle. Neither has Yeshua’s feet touch down upon the Mount of Olives. Yes, the modern nation of Israel had some conflicts but they do not meet the line upon line of YHVH’s word concerning Israel’s return to the land.

Yeshua will take possession of His city, Jerusalem, which will be the capital of His kingdom. When Israel was last a kingdom they had kings as their heads, and when they return again as a true nation they will have a king once again. The two kingdoms of Israel will be united under Yeshua as the King of kings. We know from Zechariah 14 that other nations will exist on the earth during the 1000 year reign of Messiah and many will come to Jerusalem to worship Him. He will indeed be the King of kings.

We see clearly from these texts that Israel will be a nation “at once” but by the power of Yeshua. The nation of Israel today does not exist as seen in the description given in the Bible. There is no peace, there is no Messiah ruling and reigning over them. As to that time to come that indicates what to look for when Israel is a nation again let us also look at some verses in Acts 2.

Acts 2:16-21

[1] But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

Two events are mentioned here in this text. I place numbers in the text to separate the two events. The first event is what Joel prophesied about the coming of the Holy Spirit as Yeshua also made mention of this in Acts 1. He told the disciples to tarry in Jerusalem and wait for the promise of the Father. This is what has been reported in Acts 2:1-14 [1], the people were not drunk but filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Just as Joel prophesied, so it did occur. But note that the prophecy was not only about what would happen on the day of Pentecost but also what would happen “in the last days.” So we have in this first portion of Acts 2:16-21, an out pouring which is the fulfillment of the first part of Joel’s prophecy. This second part of Acts 2:19-21 is Joel’s prophecy of what will happen in the last days when Yeshua returns.

Acts 2:19-21

[2] And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Joel is now telling us about the signs to look for when Yeshua returns. These are two different days as seen in the two baskets of Jeremiah 24. The first day in Joel’s prophecy is the coming of the Holy Spirit and the second prophecy is the second day which will be the return of Yeshua.

Joel 2:28-32

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

These are two separate events and the first event has been fulfilled – “… will I pour out my spirit.” So what is the sign of the second event? Our heavenly bodies will not give light to the earth. We shall be in darkness. Something will occur naturally or supernaturally to cause the heavenly bodies to lose their illumination. It is referring to what signs to look for when Yeshua returns.

The signs of the coming of Yeshua have been reiterated throughout the Bible. When Yeshua returns and all the earth sees and knows that He is the Son of Elohim every knee shall bow and confess that He is Lord. And whosoever shall call on the name of Yeshua shall be saved – Jew and Gentile. Yeshua will deliver Mount Zion and Jerusalem from the invasion of the nations and the remnant Yeshua will gather back to the land. When does this all happen.

Matthew 24:29-31

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Yes, immediately after the tribulation and not before. After we see the sign which is the darkening of the earth we know that Yeshua’s imminent return is nigh. After Yeshua appears and the earth is subdued under Him then He will gather Israel from the nations, the four winds. Those settlers that are in the land are not Israel. Israel has yet to be gathered thus there is not presently a nation of Israel dwelling in the land. It is only a false nation. Everything in order just as YHVH spoke.

Matthew 24:32-34

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Such verses are use to purport that Israel is a fig tree. This parable is only an illustration that helps us recognize when these events will occur. “…ye know that summer is nigh,” is the true understanding of this text. When the fig tree shoots out its leaves we know that summer is near. Like the groundhog when it casts a shadow we say there is only six more weeks of winter.

“So likewise” means we can make a comparison with one things and another. This is not saying that Israel is a fig tree and she has put forth leaves as in meaning she became a new nation. What is the meaning of “know that it is near” that this text is speaking about? It is speaking about the summer season, the season we can look to for Yeshua’s return. This is the time we gather in the harvest.

YHVH gave Israel a set of signs to look for so we know when the new month and new year begins. Daniel 7:25 tells us, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

We have indeed lost our YHVH given calendar. But we are given another sign to watch for that will help us recognize the time of Messiah’s return. It shall occur around the beginning of the summer season. Let us get some more clues of this specific sign.

Luke 21:24-33

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Note that none of these sequences deviate from the other. Jerusalem trodden down by the nations, the sun darkened and then we see Yeshua returning. This is backed up with a parable that gives us a natural occurrence so we can understand a spiritual truth. This parable is a similitude of something that will happen. The fig tree and all the trees are not referring to Israel as a nation verses other nations. It is a picture of trees that are an indication of what season we are in. This fig tree as well as certain other trees of those same characteristics is an indication according to the time of their budding forth what season it is.

This is a specific reference to the fig tree because it is one of the first trees to shoot forth its leaves in the land. So we can compare the fig tree which buds in the summer to trees that do not. The focus is on the summer season not the fall or winter or spring seasons. There is no mistake of the time of year or the season. Let’s take a closer look at this fig tree and what else occurs that tells us when the time is.

Revelation 6:12:-17

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Please note again that the events noted here is not out of sequence with other passages cited. YHVH is an Elohim of order. But let us look to the specific verse that states, “even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs”. First, let us determine what can cause a fig tree to cast it figs: lack of water, lack of pollination, disease, weather, etc.

We have noted from the majority of text cited above that the earth will be in a state of darkness. We also know if we read the book of Revelation many devastating events will occur upon the earth: wormwood will make the waters to be foul, bitter, the earth will become parched, there will be drought all over, and the lack of sunlight, darkness covering the entire earth and many will perish beast and man etc. The earth by this time will have gone through much cataclysmic devastation.

Without water, pollination, diseases ravishing the earth and with significant changes in the weather we know how the fig tree might be impacted. It will be difficult to tell time when the earth goes into darkness. But yet we are told that if we watch the fig tree we will yet know by this sign, when it cast its untimely figs that the time is nigh for the return of Messiah.

How do we go from signs about earthly seasons to Israel being depicted as a fig tree? None of the verses being wheedled as indication that Israel became a new nation in 1948 is of a true interpretation.

The Bible is clear when Israel shall return to the land. It is when YHVH hiss for her from out of the nations after Yeshua returns to rule and reign. Israel will not be a nation again until she acknowledges Yeshua as her Messiah, her priest, and her King. Yes, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord. The land will be made holy and when the people return they too will be holy in the land.

Noah did prophesy that Japheth will be enlarge and dwell in the tents, meaning accepting the faith of Shem. But Jeremiah 51:27-29 tells us that there is a reason why Japheth’s descendants, Ashchenaz, are in the land. There is a purpose that must be performed against Babylon. Babylon is the united name given to the Gentile nations of the earth that will come against Jerusalem. This is a conglomeration of all the nations.

What do we do about this? Nothing! Not one word shall return to YHVH void; it will do what it sets out to do. Knowing the truth will help the faithful know what to do and how to respond to the events in their times. Knowing this truth should comfort True Israel to remain where YHVH has placed them in order to protect them from the events to come. This does not require action only understanding. YHVH has indeed removed His people from out of the harm’s way.

The Church has promoted this people in the land and raised billions of dollars to protect them. It help them fund their security measures against other nations and have in essence put this false nation of Israel in position to cause the world to come up against Jerusalem. The nation of Israel has the greatest security system in the world. It is fiercely defended by many nations. I keep calling it the nation of Israel because that is the name it has been given yet it is false.

What is it that the enemies of YHVH and His people are really after? I believe they want the land and the city of Jerusalem so they can put their name there. Satan could not rise above the throne of YHVH in heaven so he was thrown out. In the Garden of Eden He tempted Adam and Eve with rebellion and doubt claiming that they could be gods.

We find the fallen angels descending in Genesis 6 and mingling their DNA with the daughters of men and polluting the earth to prevent Messiah’s birth. YHVH rid the world of them and all that they had corrupted. They tried to rule in earth by pretending to be gods. YHVH destroyed those unholy seeds and only Noah and his family were spared.

Then by Genesis 10 we find Nimrod the fourth generation from Noah polluting his DNA to become a might hunter. By Genesis 11 we have the people ruled by Nimrod trying to make a tower “…whose top may reach unto heaven” so they could make a name for themselves. They tried to rule from directly under YHVH’s throne but YHVH destroyed them.

Isaiah 14:12-14

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

You see, they know by now they can’t remove YHVH from His throne so they are willing to rule anywhere they can. They can’t rule in heaven or directly under heaven so now they want to rule in the earth in Jerusalem. Satan tried to tempt Yeshua in the wilderness to give up His Sonship but He would not so he moved the hearts of men to crucified Yeshua.

1 Corinthians 2:7-8

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Now they want YHVH’s holy city, Jerusalem, and His land so they can put their name on it. This is not about oil or the riches of the land. This is about putting their name on what belongs to YHVH.

Remember when Ezekiel was taken into the temple to see how the people had desecrated it? After seeing the idolatrous acts of the people in the temple Ezekiel tells us that the Spirit of YHVH departed from “that house.”

Ezekiel 10:18

Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.

The enemy wants YHVH’s throne, His city, His Son, His people, His land, His paradise, His everything.

NOTE: These scriptures have all pointed to the shooting forth of the fig tree and all other trees of that season that tells us when it is summer. This is the sign of Yeshua’s return. We are to look for Messiah to return in the summer season and when the figs shoot forth tells us it has begun. Summer is also the season when the wheat is harvested and the Bible also speaks about the wheat and the tares. The wheat is those that call upon the name of Yeshua, the church. (See Matthew 3:12; 13:25, 29, Luke 3:17; 22:31)The church is on the threshing floor and the winds of time will drive the chaff away.

We do not know the day or hour but we know the season when these things shall be. All these things must come to pass because YHVH cannot do anything with the earth while it is defiled and the people thereof. Yeshua’s kingdom will come at a time when the earth have gone through much spoiling but for a 1000 years it will remain and then the end will come and eternal life.

Isaiah 24:5-6

The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

There is much redundancy in this commentary because twice Microsoft Word crashed while I was writing this. I had to start nearly completely over once and then I had to let the power drain just so the system would be forced to save this document. Forgive the redundancy and errors.

2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


" We Have A Responsibility "


Why is it that we have such a difficult time obeying YHVH’s commands? Is it because we don’t respect His creation from the least to the greatest of things? As I was reading Isaiah today it struck me that we have made everything so political that we no longer see anything with Elohim’s imprint on them.

If we abuse the least in YHVH’s creation we will abuse the greatest. There is a funny thing about religions, there is a principle of each that the believer in that faith hold dear to as the foundation of that faith. The Baptist believe in baptism, Baha’i believe in the unity of mankind, Buddhism refrains from harming any living thing, Christianity believes in keeping all YHVH’s commandments (unfortunately not in practice), Zoroastrianism aspires to having a clear rational mind with which to dispel ignorance, etc.

You see, this is just a sample of religious beliefs that clearly there is nothing wrong with any of these beliefs. But somehow the enemy has cause us to separate from the whole and causes us to live apart in certain elements, that without the balance of all aspects of righteousness we are fools standing in quick sand.

Please do not take this to another level and say that we should embrace all religions because in the rightness of principle there is a wrongness when YHVH is absent from the whole or even in part. We choose to keep bits and pieces of His commandments that do not constrain us in the other areas of our lives and thus we think we please the Almighty Elohim.

We cannot just pluck out what fits our way of thinking or lifestyle or influences and just run with it. The political group Green Peace has a good thought in mind but without complete faith and obedience to YHVH a good idea or movement becomes corrupt with rebellion on every level.

This is what a good idea can do outside of the commandments of YHVH, it can corrupt a good idea. Anything we do without the full wisdom of YHVH is futile. When you read the Bible in its entirety you will find all the principles needed for a good faithful and true life.

YHVH employed wisdom to create all He did and yet we fail to employ this gift of YHVH in every area of our lives and decision making.

Proverbs 8:22-30
The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

YHVH possessed wisdom for all that He did, and the Bible tells us that “It was good.” When wisdom is employed it will be good. How can this be? When we accept the salvation secured by Yeshua we are imputed with righteousness and a new conscience is birth in us. We now have access to the Holy Spirit that quickens us to truth and revelation that if we allow Him to He will guide us into truth and right choices.

Our hearts must be opened to Yeshua on every level. Many will render their hearts and so act throughout their faith by emotions, some will render their minds only and act with pure logic while lacking the heart, compassion and mercy of YHVH. Some will render their knowledge of scripture and be hearers of the word but not doers, and some might render their bodies through sacrificial deeds but lack the knowledge and application of the word to comprehend true faith. Just process this and see where we are lacking the whole persona of Yeshua in our lives.

It is difficult to balance so we compartmentalize portions of the truth and think that if we excel in one and not all we are safe in all the other because we have applied at the extremes some aspect of truth. We must look at the entire picture. This is what life offers us the opportunity to do. From glory to glory is not from one emotional high to another, but rather it is from truth to truth or revelation to revelation.

We cannot live our lives just saying “YHVH knows my heart.” Not when He has given us the power of the Holy Spirit and the righteousness of Yeshua to straighten every crocked path in our lives. Rather than the power of the Holy Spirit straightening our lives and straightening thinking out we become more crocked as we age. We practice making excuses for everything.

As I read Isaiah 24 I began to ponder Psalms 24. Is it not interesting how often a specific text is confirmed in the same chapter or verse in another book? I see this so often and meant to comment on it, but I somehow seem to roll right pass it.

As I read in Isaiah about how we have defiled YHVH’s earth I was drawn back to Psalms 24.

Psalms 24:1-2
(A Psalm of David.) The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Yes, let that sink in! The entire earth is YHVH’s because it is He that founded it upon the seas in Genesis 1, the sea above and the sea below, and after the flood covered the entire earth he recovered it from that deluge. He created it and he judged all humanity and the fallen angels for having defiled the earth and all living creatures therein.

When this corruption occurred in genesis 6 it was total except for Noah and his family. Noah was perfect because his DNA was not corrupted. As it was in Noah’s day Yeshua tells us in Matthew 24 that it will be again. We will defile and corrupt all YHVH’s creation once again.

Psalms 24 reminds us who this earth belongs to and why? It is He that founded it and thus we requires our respect for all His creation. “The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” The fullness thereof is all not just somethings and not others. If we embrace all YHVH’s word we must also embrace all His creation.

We must act with righteousness in every aspect of His creation and not just pluck something here and something there leaving others to fill in the gaps. Yes, we can be focused on our faith to live the best life we can and embrace all of wisdom without extremes. If we all acted on the fullness of our faith and the absolute power of the Holy Spirit, we can be that well-rounded person who don’t go to the left or to the right in extremes.

When you come to that place of reveal truth you only need to tweak your walk to include that truth that is being revealed. No need to exercise extremism. Thus, is the problem we have, when something revealing comes to us we want to abandon all other commonsense and work toward that one new thing. We don’t even look to see how to balance it with what else we are doing we only go to the extreme.

It takes about 20 days of consecutive practice for something to become a part of your way of life. This is what growth is! The more you prune a fruit tree the more it produces and the bigger fruit you harvest. The tree does not change the fruit it begets it merely produces a better fruit. It should be the same with our lives. The more the Holy Spirit prune us the more fruit we should produce not less. The fruit grows bigger because pruning opens the fruit to the light of the Son and thus the fruit is bigger and healthier. It is not extreme just healthier.

So, our tree should be more productive not less or extreme. All new revelations should be incorporated into our repertoire of truths already acquired. There is no need to abandon one thing for another.

As I read Isaiah 24 I began to see clearly that we can often come to the truth in one thing and as other things come along we abandon something that we begin to see as taking up precious time from something else. But it all matters! All truth is the sum of our Elohim! Look at the words below in Isaiah 24.

Isaiah 24:4-6
The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

Look at the results of what is happening in the earth again after the deluge that once cleansed it of its defilement. The earth is mourning, why? Because we have neglected it and corrupted it and defiled it with pollution and idols and depleted it of its resources. As we defile the earth and it languishes so do the people who inhabit it. One thing leads to another because one thing impacts the other.

“The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.” It can’t be clearer than this! “under the inhabitants thereof,” indicates who is defiling the earth. We are and that includes who are believers in Yeshua and have embraced salvation through Him but have not embraced all His laws, ordinances and covenant.

“Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth,” meaning our mishandling of the earth is causing the curse that is devouring the life of the earth. You will not believe how many Christians do not believe they have a responsibility to recycle or protect the life of all the earth.

You can have a conviction not to put animal life above that of human life that was created in the image of YHVH. Yet, that does not mean you neglect or act with cruelty to other life on earth. Human life would not be desolate on the earth if we do everything with balance. We have become so extreme that many good faithful believers find it more compassionate to be kind to animals than to people.

I live in a township that spent a million dollars in creating a dog park, but the homeless people are chase away and not provided for. The very image of YHVH is beaten down and discarded as of lesser value than an animal with no eternal soul.

Genesis 1:26-27
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Genesis 2:7
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Man, not animals were made in the image of the divine Living Elohim and man not animals have a living soul.

Hebrews 2:5-9
For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

In these verses the Bible explains clearly the value of man as compared to the angels. Though man and the son of man was made a little lower than the angels yet, in the world to come the angels will be made subject to He who was born of man, made a man for the salvation of every man.

It stops there, not even the angels were given the gift of salvation once they sinned. There is no mention of the lower creatures, the animals. Except we find these words concerning the eternal life of man and what will happen to the beast.

Ecclesiastes 3:20-21
All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

The soul of man is eternal and goes upward even though both man and beast were created out of the earth. But the animal goes downward back to the earth from whence it came because it has no soul. Yet many people give preference to the beast over the human soul that has eternal life made in the image of YHVH.

The Bible says from dust we came and to dust we will return but it also promises a day of resurrection for the righteous. It is call for man once to die and then the judgment. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” (Hebrews 9:27-28)

Neither does this verse nor any other verses makes such a promise to the animals or to the angels. But listen to the judgment that YHVH will have even of the animals who do harm to man who is made in His image. “And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it.” (Genesis 9:5)

Only man was made in the image of YHVH and has a soul though he was made of the same dust as the beast and have the same breath of life, but the animal has no soul.

Genesis 2:7
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

So, we are back to the earth is the fullness thereof, belonging to YHVH and the earth is defiled under the inhabitants, man. We have seen how warped our thinking can be and we see that without truth or the application of that truth we can go to an extreme where we destroy the creation of YHVH and His very image. We see how we put other things above what is important to YHVH. We also see how we supersede the higher calling for the lower.

Is it too late to change? No! It is never too late even when you’ve come to the truth previously and then somehow along the way you neglected it. All we must do is turn back and He will heal and forgive.

What does this all mean? We must all do our part to ensure our part of the world is taken care of. We cannot continue to neglect our responsibility for taking care of the land and the beast. However, never at the expense of not taking care of man who bares the image of YHVH. We must balance our living with caring. We must take care because it impacts us and what impacts us negatively also impacts our relationship with our creator.

All I am saying is take care of all that is around you. We are caretakers of the earth and all that is in it is included. Plant trees and stop using chemicals to treat everything and learn that nature did not come with manicured lawns. Everything matters!

Recycle so that we are not plugging up the earth with waste that do not decay. Try to use materials that will not contaminate you or the earth. Chose a glass or ceramic cup rather than one made of Styrofoam, plastic which when heated up or frozen will leach chemicals that will cause cancer.

Try to purchase your food from bulk food bins rather than prepackaged because the marketing packages fill our landfills with rubbish that often do not decay.

Try to apply practical ways of living that will not harm the environment. You can also grow your own food in containers if you don’t have the land to avoid purchasing prepackaged items. Anything you can grow yourself helps eliminates packaging.

Don’t be extreme where these habits become your new gospel. Share ideas and clean up where you live. Little by little we can protect what is YHVH’s and the fullness thereof. This seems like such a trivial thing to add to the many things our lives are full of but it is the first assignment given to man.

Genesis 2:15
And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

We were put out of that garden to sweat out our existence in the earth.

Genesis 3:17-19
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Though we are told we will return to the ground from where we sweat out our livelihood, we are told by the wise Solomon not to waste so precious a life.

Ecclesiastes 7:17
Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?

Why are we killing ourselves before our time when we can all do something to ensure that we and the generations to come can continue and not die before their time. We have a responsibility for what YHVH created, to ourselves and to others.

While we are anticipating the coming of Yeshua let us still take care of His created works. It is important to endure because this is how YHVH extends His longsuffering virtue to us-ward.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

We have a responsibility to YHVH and to each other. It is never too late until we draw our last breath. If YHVH can be longsuffering for our benefit surely we too can be longsuffering for the benefit of others.

If you find truth in this post please forward to others.

" CPR, Mouth-to-Mouth Resuscitation, Transplants, Medical Breakthroughs, Transhumanism, etc. "


I had stated in one of my previous commentaries that I believe CPR is demonic. I think about the story of the man where one demon was cast out and finding that rather than wander in the wilderness it was better to go and occupy that empty host while taking seven others with it. I know it sounds a bit strange applying this to CPR, but I feel extremely impressed to enlarge on this topic.

The Bible tells us that we have the breath of life in us that is the breath of YHVH.

Genesis 2:7
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

It is that very breath of YHVH that truly makes us a living soul. The word soul is the Hebrew word ‘nephesh’ meaning self, life, mind, desire, emotion, passion, activity of the character etc. Therefore, who we are is essential to that very breath of YHVH and not what we receive by mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

As a process of this resuscitation, bringing life back into the body, we have the element of CPR. The interesting thing is that the Bible says that the heart of man is evil continually.

Genesis 6:5
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

The very thing that man is trying to revive with CPR the Bible tells us that it is evil. Let’s put mouth-to-mouth resuscitation together with CPR. Without the breath of YHVH and having then receive some other person’s breath how much evil can the heart be?

I believe the world is has been lulled into accepting this medical procedure for a greater evil intent. Why is the heart being awaken to and what effect does someone else’s breath have on a person?

Yes, it could be stated that the same breath of YHVH in one person is being used to bring life back into the lifeless body of another person so there is no difference. Interesting though, the definition of ‘soul’ ‘nephesh’ is defined as self, mind, desire, emotion, passion, activity of character. Can there be a type of transference from one soul to another? What do we really know about that person, his beliefs and religious or non-religious practices? What occult practices are they participating in? What allegiances do they what with the devil.

Is it possible that a person begins to take on a new persona whether subtle or apparent? Perhaps the new characteristics of resuscitation is being delayed for such a time. In other words, the manifestation of something out of this world is delayed until we have all succumb. The Bible speaks about familiar spirits which conveys there is someone or something that is familiar with the persona of someone else and thus they can imitate them. A necromancer is one who invokes the dead, ghost, spirit of a dead one, like an ancestor.

Yet the Bible tells us that the dead sleeps and will not rise until the first resurrection for those that are found in the Lamb’s book of life, and the second resurrection unto the final judgment.

Here is the story of King Saul waking up the spirit of Samuel.

I Samuel 28:6-15
And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets. Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? And Saul sware to her by the LORD, saying, As the LORD liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself. And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.

We see that the woman was a necromancer who had a familiar spirit, a demon who was her guide to the underworld. Saul knew this and asked her to divine to him using that demonic spirit. But something strange happen that the woman did not expect, Samuel’s spirit woke up rather than the usual familiar spirit she was operating through which spoke like a ventriloquist through her voice. She cried out in a loud voice because she was shocked by the occurrence.

When asked by Saul what she say she said she saw ‘gods’ coming up out of the earth. Note that this is a lowercase ‘g’ and plural denoting fallen angelic beings. It is these disembodied sons of the fallen angels that have long ago pretended with their fathers that they were gods and cause the people to worship them.

Who are we raising when someone is brought back from the dead? We know that YHVH allowed Samuel’s spirit to come up out of his sleep because He said that much, “Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up?” Samuel did not speak through the woman but rather his spirit spoke directly to her.

The word ‘disquieted’ is the Hebrew word ‘ragaz’ which means to quiver (with any violent emotion, especially anger or fear). Samuel was literally enraged with Saul for having summons him up. He did the unthinkable to Samuel. He caused Samuel to ascend like the very demons who the woman saw ascending out of the earth. The woman was using Samuel as a demon would be used. We know that Yeshua tells us in the first resurrection we shall meet Him in the clouds. Samuel had a right to be enraged.

Not only that the following verse tells us that Samuel knew Saul was not operating in the will of Elohim because YHVH had departed from him and “and is become thine enemy.” YHVH had no part in what Saul did but He allowed it.

1 Samuel 28:16
Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the LORD is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy?

So, we see how what we are medically doing is witchcraft. We are calling back the dead from the grave and we don’t know what we have brought back because it is a familiar spirit to us.

Let’s go back to what the woman saw that was ascending out of the earth. Now compare this to Revelation. She said she saw gods ascending out of the earth.

Revelation 9:2-3; 13-15
And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power…. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

Revelation 13:1; 11-14
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy…… And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

We should fear things coming up out of the earth. These are not things of YHVH holy and acceptable unto Him.

Considering what might be happening to the human soul which falls asleep and should not be called up, what then is truly returning into the body of man who has been revived?

We have many stories in the Old and New Testament that tells us about the dead rising again. These are all stories of the power of YHVH working through His servants and His Son. Those raised from the dead were called out to and they arose by the power of the word. This is not what we are seeing with these medical procedures.

How many strange stories have we hear about out of body experiences that somehow do not quite fit the Biblical accounts of those that were raised from the dead? Not a one reported having an experience in the grave not even Lazarus who was in the grave three days.

The Bible says that YHVH speaks by His prophets, through dreams and visions through those that are alive. Yeshua gave this story of one poor beggar named Lazarus who died.

Luke 16:19-31
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Read carefully the words underscored above. Yeshua was warning us to take heed of these fanciful stories of people claiming to have died and gone to hell and heaven. I am sure they have made some impact on people who heard the telling of them. However, we are to walk by faith and not by sight hence, they lacked faith in the first place. Have they really been persuaded? Yeshua conveyed in the story that they are not persuaded. They rather leap from one lie to another. Therefore, in the end many will be deceived by signs and wonders.

We are being manipulated, promised extended life and given a false hope of having lived longer through the process of resuscitation. Don’t be fooled! We are being lulled into being host for the disembodied demons looking for a host body and coming in with the familiarity of the dead soul. The full reality of this will be seen slowly by slowly.

Why are crazy things happening in the world? People whom we thought would never do extreme evil is suddenly embarking on strange behaviors and mass murders. How many drug addicts have been brought back not once but multiple times from the dead just to do it again and again.

We have invented all kinds of things that create the simulation of life, yet we do not have a clue what type of Pandora we are letting out of the box.

We are so used to tearing down one religious’ group from another without really looking at all the facts because many groups are extreme. We have been cautioned by Paul not to allow a schism in the body and we did not heed. Now that we are divided we can’t even do each other the honor of seeing clearly the truths from the lies.

I pray for wisdom to rightly divide the word of truth. Every lie has some element of truth, so we can’t seem to find our way out of the lies because of the truth. On the other side the lies also keep us from the truth.

Therefore, studying the Bible for one’s self is so paramount to knowing the truth of each matter. The Bible is a whole book and only when we read it in its entirety can we begin to slowly by slowly know what the truth is.

For example, The Jehovah Witnesses have a point of belief of not allowing blood transfusions. I used to think that this was wrong and a waste of a good life to allow someone to die for the lack of blood. I have concluded that this is the right thing to do. For me this is my say so not based on Jehovah Witnesses doctrine but the word of YHVH based on my studies and wisdom from above. Every man must come to their own conclusion for themselves.

We have come to learn over extended time that many things can be transmitted through the blood, such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, and certain diseases. Is this why the Bible says that the joining of one man and one woman will make the two become one flesh? We know what physical agents can be transmitted but what is there that we do not see?

What is that unseen thing that is happening in the blood that is being transferred to another person when we give blood transfusions? There are many things that is happening in this world that we don’t realize until too late.

Let’s look at physical relationships. Obviously, something happens that we can’t quite put our natural eyes on to bear witness of when we have physical intercourse. Isn’t it strange that when a couple has been married for many years they begin to look like and act like each other. Something transforming happens on several levels, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Genesis 2:24
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh

1 Corinthians 6:16
What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

The word cannot lie. We must allow the Spirit of truth to give us wisdom as we read the Word of Elohim. Look at the following verse.

1 Corinthians 6:17
But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

When the breath of YHVH is in us we are one spirit with Him, just as if we have the breath of another in us we are one spirit with them. We have been warned not to consume the blood of animals. Many animalistic religions believe that if they drink the blood of an animal they spirit become one with that animal.

Genesis 9:3-4
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

Leviticus 17:13-14
And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

We have been commanded not to eat the blood of animals because the life of the animal is in its blood since it has no soul.

We are painted a picture that we can’t deny. Blood is the life of all flesh thus it should not be eaten nor transmitted to another. To eat it is to transmit it and to give it in a transfusion is to consume it. Even if it is our own blood being stored away for later use how do we know what is lacking or added when it returns to our body? If a legion of demons can enter pigs what can happen to blood being stored outside of the body?

Our actions are all fear driven. When people are afraid of death they will do anything to prolong the inevitable. Yet Yeshua conquered death on our behalf and all we need to do is accept this great gift of grace. Fear will cause us to do things we ordinarily would not do. What Yeshua has accomplished on the cross should give us great hope.

When we take into our body the breath of someone else and receive blood transfusions are we still one with the spirit of YHVH?

Now, on the issue of transplants, I do not believe this is the will of YHVH for us. If this was a design of the Father, then why do we need to take so many immunosuppression medications to stop the body from rejecting the organ. The body rejects what is not intended for it. Even when that transplant is from a relative the body still treats that organ as a germ.

“Your body's defenses are always on the prowl for germs and other foreign organisms. Unfortunately, this means that your body is not a very well-mannered host. It treats your life-saving transplanted organ just like it treats a mere freeloading germ: It attacks. Organ rejection is your own body's misguided attempt to protect you. That's why there's immunosuppression. Immunosuppressant drugs can block the effects of these natural defenses. They usually allow your body to live in relative harmony with a donor organ. The catch is that by blocking your defenses, you become more vulnerable to infections. It's the trade-off of getting a transplant.” "Living with a transplant is always about keeping the balance between rejection and infection," says Barry Friedman, RN, administrative director of the Solid Organ Transplant Program at the Children's Medical Center in Dallas. "You need to take enough of your medicines to prevent organ rejection. But you can't take so much that your risk of infection gets too high."

Google webmd.com organ transplants anti-rejection medicines

I’ve highlighted a few words in the quote above. Misguided, live in relative harmony, it’s the trade-off, keeping the balance between rejection and infection are words that should send off alarms.

How can this be the will of YHVH for us? If the body rejects it do not accept it. Organ transplant should not be an option for a believer whether to receive one or to be a donor. I do not believe giving or receiving blood should be an option either. If we trust in YHVH let us trust Him all the way. If it is His will He can work a miracle on your behalf and on mine. He can heal and he can raise from the dead without man’s manipulation.

Isaiah 57:1
The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

Can you accept that YHVH might be sparing you from the evil to come if He calls you home?

I also mentioned transhumanism which is:

“The belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology.”

“Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellect and physiology.”

Google definition of humanism.

This is what there are pushing on us. The full realization of this is to transfer the mind and consciousness of man into a technological contraction, a sleeve whether of some organic matter or mechanical device or robotics. All of this is to remove the “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27

Man wants to escape death and the judgment, but it is inescapable. Whether we are compressing the heart forcing blood to return, giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation forcing the breath back in, transmitting blood which is introducing blood that is not of our own, or enhancing the body to prevent death we can only prolong it for a season.

On the issue of human fertilization in a test tube, I do not believe this is something a believer ought to scribe to.

Genesis 20:18
For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.

Genesis 29:31
And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

Exodus 23:25-26
And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

Psalm 113:9
He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.

Hebrews 11:11
Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

There are many reasons why a woman might be barren, physical and spiritual reasons. Yet there is no need to be so extreme outside of YHVH’s grace. How many women waited some one or two decades before they finally became pregnant the natural way? Many women are so stressed after a few years of not having a child that they bodies will not allowed them to conceive or carry a child to full term. Finally, when the thought leaves them and they stop vacillating on it lo and behold they are with child.

It is YHVH who opens and closes the womb, but man is ever prying it open. We are playing god, but we are no gods and shall die as men. The worst thing in life is not to be childless but rather to be rebellious against the created natural ways of YHVH for which the ancient world was destroyed in the deluge. This time it will not be by water but by fire.

Psalm 27:14
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Luke 1:37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.

The world is telling us to have hope in their devices, medical and scientific accomplishments but at what cost too our soul. No believer should go outside the range of prayer to accomplish certain things.

We have too extremes in our societies, those who would go to any lengths to have children and those who can have children and refuses to do so. None of these choices are pleasing to YHVH. All we can each do is our utmost to stay in the will of our Heavenly Father.

We are at a stage of the game when we must make certain choices that might cost us our lives but if we are hid in Yeshua “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?1 Corinthians 15:55

So many choices we are given but it does not mean we have to make that choice. At the end of the day we need to ask ourselves the question, “Is it well with my soul?”

So many things to ponder. At every turn we must stay abreast of new technology and new medical breakthroughs to ensure we are not being hoodwinked by the enemy. Interesting that sci-fi movies have portrayed all these scenarios decades before they were brought to light. The movies showed us the real reality of the evil of these medical practices and thus we called them science fiction.

Hello, this is no longer sci-fi, this is reality so therefore ask yourself the question, “if all this is now true, what about the horror aspects of it?” I could cover so much more. Crispr-Cas9 is a reality. Read it for yourselves.
Google The Guardian Science modified babies given the go ahead by UK ethics body

All I can say is we must be wise in this world we live in. It might cost you something, your life, just make sure it does not cost you your soul.

If you find truth in this post please forward to others.

2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


" YHVH Is Both Fire And Ice "


The Bible says that YHVH is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 12:29
For our God is a consuming fire.

Ezekiel gives us a glimpse of the Almighty in this regard, from the neck down YHVH is fire.

Ezekiel 1:24-28
And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings. And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings. And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

In the spirit realm there is that reality that cannot be seen or understood by mortal man but, yet it is a reality though spiritual.

I Corinthians 15:39-41
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

Everything has a body and a glory thereof though each is significantly different. We imagine the spiritual realm or the celestial realm to be nothingness but, that is not so. Hebrews 11:3 reminds us on how to think on these things, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

So, we have a reality based on things which we cannot see. In other words, the visible things came out of the invisible things of the celestial realm. Though YHVH is spirit He is so because we cannot see Him in this realm but, we are promised that those whose name is written in the Lamb’s book of life will see Him face-to-face. How is this possible? We will be born of spirit and water. Though through out the ages YHVH allowed some of His prophets to have a glimpse of His reality.

Moses met the angel of the LORD, not YHVH, but an angel that is distinctly referred to as ‘the angel of the LORD’ who appeared unto him as a flame of fire. That would be about right if this angel is a representative of YHVH’s explicit person.

Exodus 3:2-5
And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

This is a flame that did not consume that which it manifested on. Though the word says that Elohim is a consuming fire in this case this fire did not consume. The LORD called to Moses out of the midst of the bush. The angel which represents His presence was YHVH’s vehicle of expression. As He spoke to prophets in times past He also spoke through the presence of the angel of the LORD. In this case the angel of the LORD appeared and YHVH spoke from the midst of that phenomenon. The word does not say that YHVH was within the burning bush but rather that He called unto Moses out of the midst of the bush.

We do have a specific occasion where YHVH did descend upon the earth in fire.

Exodus 19:16-19
And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

The verse above cites an encounter with the very presence of YHVH. The people came to meet with YHVH and not the angel of the LORD It was YHVH who descended upon the mountain in His supernatural form - fire. We can’t paint a clearer picture than this. In this case YHVH descended in fire and YHVH spoke. The text is so clear we don’t have to assume anything or try to word play whether it was an angel or Yeshua or the Father or the Holy Spirit. The word is clear.

YHVH our Elohim is a fire and a consuming one at that. The angel of the LORD is not this consuming fire even though Hebrews 1:7 states that “His ministers are a flame of fire.”

When Moses was by the burning bush he was told by the voice of Elohim to, “Draw not night hither” because He said the place was holy ground.

The word said Elohim called to Moses out of the burning bush, in other words He used the presence of the angel of the LORD and his manifestation to speak to Moses out of the appearance of a flame of fire which did not consume.

Now we have Moses coming to the bush to see what this strange occurrence was and YHVH speaks forth out of the bush that was on fire but obviously not a consuming fire. Yet the ground was holy because Elohim manifested in that place.

On the Mount of Sanai, we have YHVH himself descending in fire because He is fire. In Exodus 19:3 we have Moses going up unto Elohim in the mountain and Elohim calling to him from that place.

Exodus 19:9
And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD.

YHVH clearly states, “I come unto thee.” We have a personal invitation for Moses and the people to draw near and hear His own voice so that they might believe. YHVH did not use His angels to manifest in His behalf he did it Himself.

By means of all the miracles of deliverance and traveling to Mount Sanai YHVH was preparing them so He could make Himself clearly known unto them. Aaron sanctified the people, so they would know first hand that they serve a True and Living Elohim.

Exodus 19:10-11
And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

Here was an invitation from the Almighty to Moses and His people to come and hear firsthand His voice. The people had to be sanctified as Moses had to take off his shoes before approaching the messenger of YHVH at the burning bush.

The Bible is clear that YHVH, not the angel of the LORD, but YHVH descended upon Mount Sinai.

Exodus 19:18-20
And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice. And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.

YHVH descends in fire because He is fire, so says Ezekiel in Ezekiel 1:27, so says Paul in Hebrews 12:29 and so says Moses in Exodus 19:18. We have the description of the presence of YHVH ‘fire’ and we have the evidence and reality of Him being fire - smoke. “Where there is smoke there is fire.” Only Moses was invited up to the top of the mount to commune with Him.

YHVH being fire and being the Almighty knows how to restrain His flames from consuming Moses and the very mountain which he descended upon. YHVH came down “on the top of the mount” and Moses went up “to the top of the mount.” He who is a consuming fire did not consume His called-out prophet.

Remember the story of the three Hebrew boys? Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were cast into the fire but YHVH did not allow the fire to consumed them.

Daniel 3:24-28
Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

In this story we have an earthly fire designed to kill, but an angel entered the fire with them and thus saved their lives. YHVH rules over the fire. He has power to consume or to restrain because He is fire.

YHVH did not appear in the fire nor did Yeshua appear in the fire as many teach. Look at the words carefully. The king said “the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. One, this tells us that the ancients had the knowledge that the Almighty has a Son and two, this tells us that the appearance seen in the flame was compared to something but not in itself that thing – ‘is like’. The King clarifies later who the fourth present was, YHVH sent “his angel.”

Hebrews 1:1-8
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

There can be no comparison between the Son of Elohim and an angel thus Nebuchadnezzar made the clarification by the end of the story of the three Hebrew boys. Though we can be certain it was an angel just as Nebuchadnezzar stated in the end because YHVH do have ministers that are a flame of fire – mind you though, just a flame.

YHVH was not frivolous with His son in heaven nor in the earth.

1 Corinthians 2:6-8
Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

There was a hidden wisdom of the Son of Elohim before the foundation of the world to save man from His sins. Not even the princes, fallen angels, of this world were privy to this knowledge. Yeshua did not start his works to save mankind until after He was born as a man. Though we have it stated that it was by Him and for Him that the worlds were made.

John 1:1-3
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Nothing happened before its time. In all this there was yet a hidden mystery of YHVH for the sake of redeeming sinful mankind. The Father did not parade the Son throughout heaven. In all the works of creation YHVH left a message to the ages of things to come. Just as He has left us a multitude of writings to study and search out the truth.

Thus, the ancients had some knowledge of what was to come. Yes, we see all this in the ancient myths about the gods of this world. Based on what they understood the fallen ones attempted to falsify the truth but, yet they did not know the entire truth as noted in 1 Corinthians 2:6-8. Had they known Satan would have done all in his power to ensure Yeshua did not died.

The fallen angels introduced Adam and Eve to the notion of being ‘as gods’ and thus from that point on they began to build a foundation of false theologies based on what they knew YHVH was going to do as stated by the prophets and YHVH Himself as He prophesied to Eve in the Garden of Eden.

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The serpent heard this word in the beginning that her seed will bruise his head. How do we know who the serpent is?

Revelation 20:1-2
And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

These are all the same being – one and the same. From the beginning the ancients had a knowledge that the Son of God existed. False religions were constructed based on this knowledge. The Devil propagated deceptions based on what he knew for eons of our existence. He counterfeits false religions based on what he copied from YHVH. 1 Corinthians 2:7 declares, “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”

The devil doesn’t know everything. Praises!

So, we know that this was not the Yeshua in the fire with the three Hebrew boys but an angel and most likely not an angel but a minister of YHVH. “Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.” This flame of fire would most likely be found walking in the fire as we saw the angel of the LORD appearing unto Moses in Exodus 3:2, “And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush….”

Elohim is a consuming fire to which there should be no doubt. The verses below demonstrate the power of YHVH to consume by fire both for good and for judgment.

Genesis 19:24, Luke 17:29
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

Exodus 9:22-24
And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt. And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

Leviticus 10:1-2
And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

I Kings 18:36-38
And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

2 Kings 1:10, also v.12
And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

1 Chronicles 21:26
And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called upon the LORD; and he answered him from heaven by fire upon the altar of burnt offering.

2 Chronicles 7:1
Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.

Job 1:16
While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

Revelation 20:7-9
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

YHVH is that consuming fire that can set a fire according to His righteous will. It is His nature that is strange to us. He is that consuming fire from the loins down and from the loins up as Ezekiel describes in Ezekiel 1:27.

Moses was told to take off his shoes for the ground he stood on was holy. This also tells us that this fire which represents even His messengers is holy. It is because the angels are the sons of Elohim and thus though not made in His image, some are obviously made of His substance.

We see the honor given to the presence of the fire repeated at the mount of Sinai as Moses was instructed to sanctify the people before they approach the mount.

The fire who is YHVH is holy and none can approach Him unless they too are holy less the fire consumes them. We see this with the sons of Aaron in Leviticus 10 cited above. The fire of YHVH seen through His Son is also a fire used to refine the hearts of men. That fire burns away the leaven. The Son has the power of the Father for the saving of the souls of men.

Malachi 3:3
Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Yet this fire becomes the ultimate cleanser of the sin and defilement found in all YHVH’s creation.

Revelation 20:10,14-15
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever… And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

This fire can destroy both the immortal angels and mortal man who was made from the dust of the earth. Yes, even Satan who walked in the midst of the fire before he rebelled will be consumed by that same fire.

Ezekiel 28:14-18
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

This is the power of YHVH over His arch enemy. YHVH allowed Satan to walk in His presence – “the midst of the stones of fire.” It is this same fire that will devour him. Satan along with all those that are shaken loose from eternity because of rebellion and sin will be consumed by YHVH’s fire of judgment.

Hebrews 12:27-29
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.

As it is with the Father so is it with the Son.

Revelation 1:12-18
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

In the end we will see the full manifestation of Yeshua, eyes as a flame of fire and His countenance as the sun. He “have the keys of hell” to consume away the unrighteous. There should be no doubt that Fire has everything to do with YHVH though He is a spirit, yet the spirit has its own celestial body and glory. Hallelujah – Praises! We do not serve a phantom but a True and Living Elohim capable of fire because He is fire.

We cannot fathom what heaven is like even if we try. We have been given glimpses of the Most High but we tell ourselves to look at all the revealed truths of YHVH as only ‘spiritually speaking’ thus we annul all He has tried to reveal to us so that we have faith and confidence and not be deceived. If we keep this up we will soon enough fall for the lies of the beast that will eventually make his manifestation taking down most of humanity in his lies.

Here we have established the fire – now the ice!

We have been brained washed to believe that ice kingdoms are evil. The devil has taken what is true to YHVH, fire and ice and has corrupted our knowledge of both. When we read in the Narnia Chronicles about the evil snow queen we associate ice with evil. When we look at the evil snow queen in the movie Frozen again we are led to believe that anything to do with ice is evil. There is also the story written by Hans Christian Andersen The Snow Queen about the struggle between good and evil centered around an evil snow queen. So, we have perpetuated this falsehood that anything having to do with an icy kingdom is evil. Though the evil characters being portrayed are women it still conveys the same anything to do with an icy kingdom is evil.

When we speak of the north and south poles as icy impenetrable wilderness we also convey the lie that icy worlds are evil. The devil has spent so much time promoting stories that has and will cause us to doubt or mistrust The True and Living Elohim. We see paradise as a beautiful sunny flowering garden warm and cozy like and that is all we see. How might that tarnish any picture of an icy and barren wonderland?

The lies the devil has perpetuated throughout the history of men to cause us to see only evil or only one side of things when we should be seeing the truth and the good in all things YHVH created. How would you feel if you learn that as much as YHVH is a consuming fire that His kingdom is also a kingdom of ice and frost?

Let’s start at the beginning.

Genesis 1:6-8
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

YHVH set a solid expanse over the earth to separate the waters above from the waters below. The ancient Hebrews described this as the visible arch of the sky. It is a solid vault supporting the waters above. The Hebrew word for firmament is ‘raqiya.’ In between the firmament and the earth below is the open sky above where the bible tells us the birds fly.

Genesis 1:20
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Ezekiel 1 gives us a description of the firmament and waters above. Why does this matter? It is so that when His kingdom comes you will be able to recognize it from the false one. We have come to accept those things that are not true as though they are.

Revelation 13:1; 11-14
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy…… And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

If we understand that YHVH is above and comes from above, we would not accept anything that comes out of the sea or out of the earth. If you don’t understand the above you will fall for the below.

Ezekiel 1:22-26
And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above. And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies. And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings. And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings. And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

Ezekiel describes the firmament. He said the likeness of the firmament is “as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.” The word likeness is the Hebrew word ‘dmuwth’ meaning resemblance, model, shape similitude. In this case this is what it looks like.

This is the appearance exactly. The word ‘colour’ above is the very word used for eye in Hebrew, ‘ayin.’ In other words what you are seeing with the physical eye is what the firmament appears as – a vaulted ceiling. So, what is Ezekiel seeing with his physical eye as he beholds the firmament?

“…the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.” The mention of ‘terrible’ is to convey something to that is to be revere with in awe, with a revenant dread or fear. Ezekiel’s words should “inspire reverence or godly fear or awe” expressly. The word that follows ‘crystal’ is the word we will focus on a bit. It is the Hebrew word ‘qerach’ which means ice, hail; by resemblance, rock crystal:--crystal, frost, ice. Hence, we have an expanse of ice. Yes, the firmament is an expanse of ice that separates the warm earth below from the frozen heaven above where Elohim is a consuming fire who dwells above.

NASA says this much but will not tell the entire truth of the matter. The higher one flies into the atmosphere the colder it becomes and frost and icy begins to freeze whatever tries to penetrate the heavens above. We know the Bible tells us that there is a crystal sea, or a frozen sea above that is before YHVH’s throne.

Revelation 4:6
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

The word crystal is the Greek word ‘krystallos’ which means frost, ice. Right up to the very throne of YHVH there is a frozen sea of ice. There sitting on His throne is our Elohim a consuming fire. How amazingly awesome – fire and ice!

This is all written in the Bible because YHVH want us to know the truth and not to be afraid of Him and for us to be able to rightly divide the word of truth. In order not to be deceived you must know the truth.

Isn’t it interest that NASA tells us the higher in altitude we go the colder it gets. Even our airplanes can only fly so high before the wings begins to freeze. The higher we go the colder it gets. The closer we go to the ends of the earth the colder it gets. Hence the north and south poles as we refer to them are frozen lands. The solid firmament and the frozen sea above keep us out of the realm of YHVH and the frozen poles keeps us within the realm of the earth. There is no escaping this earth. The firmament cannot be breached though the USA has tried and failed. Read about Operation Fishbowl, the high-altitude nuclear tests done in 1962. This was done under the USA Operation Dominic Program.

It was an attempt to map the height, width and breadth of the firmament. They were also looking for a way to exist the earth. Hence, they call the test Operation Fishbowl because they are aware that the earth’s design is like a snow globe or a fishbowl and we are the occupants enclosed within. The name of the missile use was called Thor. Every test failed one after the other. Interesting story about Thor, he welded a hammer and he was considered a guide to travelers crossing over the sea. So, they hoped to employ the name of an ancient storm and weather god of the sky and thunder to break them free from the earth.

Now consider the name given to the entire program, Operation Dominic. The word ‘Dominic’ is the Latin word for Lordly or Belonging to God. What do you think this means except that we had the rise of Nimrod once again trying to breach the abode of YHVH. This time not with bricks and mortar but with the building blocks of creation, the atom. The USA desperately wants to breach the fishbowl that belongs to YHVH.

Psalm 24:1-2
The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas and established it upon the floods.

Yes, He founded it upon the seas, plural – the sea below and the sea above. The USA and other powerful nations of the world want to breakaway from the sea below and enter the sea above to take what belongs to YHVH. We have the evidence about this deception, but we only must open our eyes and know the truth.

Another reason why jet planes can’t fly so high is “due to a lack of air. Jet engines breathe air, and above a certain altitude, there won’t be enough air to run the engine. Indeed, if you climb too high, the engines can and will shut off.”
https://www.quora.com/Why-do-airplane-engines-fail-at-high-altitude

Isn’t this interesting! NASA claims to send rockets and astronauts to space but we see that there is no air above a certain height and thus nothing to thrust the rockets into the so call empty vacuum of space. There is no air above. It is a place where only spirits can exist.

We have an icy kingdom above and we are hemmed in by an icy world below to the north and to the south. The redesign of the earth by Nicolaus Copernicus was strategic to cause us to believe the earth is a globe and the sun is at the center of the universe and the universe is endless. The evil one used this man to reshape our understanding of how YHVH created things that are. They do not want us to see or know about the spirit realm. They want us to think there is something more physical beyond, so we will forget our Elohim.

There is only one way to enter that kingdom above. Man cannot exist in the atmosphere above and therefore we hear repeatedly those who had the privilege of entering the spirit realm tells us that they went there in the spirit. Paul tells us this in 2 Corinthians 12:2-4 and John tells us this in Revelation 4:1-2.

Yeshua said we cannot enter the kingdom of heaven unless we are born of spirit and water. Man cannot breach the kingdom of heaven in the condition we are in. No airplane and no rocket or space station can cross that barrier between this world and the other. It is too cold, and the firmament barrier cannot be crossed unless YHVH opens a door for man to cross over.

We know Enoch was taken by YHVH.

Genesis 5:24
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

YHVH fetched Enoch away because Enoch walked with Him. The word for walk is ‘halak’ in Hebrew and it also means continually be conversant with YHVH. The Hebrew reads, “And walked Enoch with God, he could not be found for took away him God.” This is a literal rendering of the Hebrew. Hebrews 11:5 states that Enoch was translated, transported, pass over or removed to another place. Enoch crossed over into a realm that was only possible by the supernatural intervention of YHVH.

2 Kings 2:8-11
And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground. And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Isn’t it interesting that before Elijah was taken away he divided the water and thus went over? If a chariot was coming to take him why the issue of dividing the water? Is YHVH giving us a view to the journey Elijah would take from this world to the spirit world. I believe YHVH opened a door in the firmament above where Elijah would traverse the sea above and thus enter the heavenly realm. Yes, YHVH is showing us that the water must be parted for anyone to enter in. Does this not remind you of Israel crossing the Red Sea and crossing the Jordan Rover to enter the Promise Land?

2 Kings 2:11
And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Now we have a chariot of fire and horses of fire that are needed to protect Elijah as he crossed the icy barrier above. What can penetrate icy but fire.

Ezekiel stated that the firmament was above the heads of the living creatures who were suspended between the earth under the firmament. Elijah crossed that firmament from above. According to the Book of Jasher, Enoch crossed over from the ends of the earth.

Book of Jasher 3:31-38
And all the sons of men assembled and came to Enoch that day; and all the kings of the earth with their princes and counsellors remained with him that day; and Enoch then taught the sons of men wisdom and knowledge, and gave them divine instruction; and he bade them serve the Lord and walk in his ways all the days of their lives, and he continued to make peace amongst them. And it was after this that he rose up and rode upon the horse; and he went forth and all the sons of men went after him, about eight hundred thousand men; and they went with him one day's journey. And the second day he said to them, Return home to your tents, why will you go? perhaps you may die; and some of them went from him, and those that remained went with him six day's journey; and Enoch said to them every day, Return to your tents, lest you may die; but they were not willing to return, and they went with him. And on the sixth day some of the men remained and clung to him, and they said to him, We will go with thee to the place where thou goest; as the Lord liveth, death only shall separate us. And they urged so much to go with him, that he ceased speaking to them; and they went after him and would not return; And when the kings returned they caused a census to be taken, in order to know the number of remaining men that went with Enoch; and it was upon the seventh day that Enoch ascended into heaven in a whirlwind, with horses and chariots of fire. And on the eighth day all the kings that had been with Enoch sent to bring back the number of men that were with Enoch, in that place from which he ascended into heaven. And all those kings went to the place and they found the earth there filled with snow, and upon the snow were large stones of snow, and one said to the other, Come, let us break through the snow and see, perhaps the men that remained with Enoch are dead, and are now under the stones of snow, and they searched but could not find him, for he had ascended into heaven.

Clearly this is a description of either the north or the south pole. Don’t be hesitant to read the Book of Jasher as the Bible tells us to read it.

Joshua 10:13
And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

2 Samuel 1:18.
(Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.)

Now let’s see what the Bible says specifically about ice, frost, hail, snow, crystal, cold all the things that states clearly what the Almighty declares His kingdom to be.

Exodus 9:18 hail
Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.

YHVH declares that He who is a consuming fire will rain down hail. He who created the hail causes it to descend from above even as the rain fell from above during the deluge.

Job 37:9-13 ice, cold
Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

The cold cometh out of the north and it is by the very breath of Elohim. He who is fire breaths frost. Outside He is fire but inside He is frost.

Job 38:22-23 snow, hail
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

We see here that snow is a treasure to YHVH. He beautifies His kingdom with it. We are told that our sins should be white as snow because snow is so clean and clear. On the other hand, hail is reserved as a form of judgment. All these things are of YHVH and not some accident of nature of the weather.

Job 38:29-30 ice, frost, frozen
Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

You have just read from the book of Jasher above about “Come, let us break through the snow and see, perhaps the men that remained with Enoch are dead, and are now under the stones of snow, and they searched but could not find him, for he had ascended into heaven.” Snow is something solid when compacted as we see at the north and south pole. The frozen water becomes solid stones of ice and the face of the deep are frozen even as we see is the case with icebergs whose depths can be fathoms deep. As much as YHVH is fire He is also ice which the word declares came out of His womb though a figure of speech or perhaps it is more the truth of the matter.

Psalms 18:6-13 hail stones
In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

Oh, how brilliant our Elohim is, hail stones and coals of fire – ice and fire! We cannot imagine the magnificence of our Creator. We can accept a tree of the knowledge of good and evil but why can’t we accept that our creator is both fire and ice?

Psalm 78:47-48 hail, frost
He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost. He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.

YHVH is not only a consuming fire but He also consumes away with hail and frost followed by hot thunderbolts. Thor is not the god of thunder but YHVH our Elohim is that one and only El Shaddai – He is the fire, hail, thunderbolt, whirlwind etc. etc. etc.

Psalms 147:16-17 snow, hoarfrost, ice, cold
He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes. He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?

Glory! Who can stand before His cold – for He is even this. I think now of how much I don’t like the cold weather. I think of how I suffered frost bite to some of my toes and fingers and now I don’t care to be in a place when it is winter. I can only now imagine how much I will love it in that eternal time to come. My heart now warms to it though the spirit is willing the flesh is weak when contemplating the winter months that will soon come. I embrace the truth of the nature of our Elohim. Praises! We will be changed to meet the world that is to come!

Psalms 148:1-8 hail, snow
Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights. Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass. Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

HALLELUJAH!

Isaiah 28:2,16-17 hail
Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand…Therefore thus saith 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 believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

We are all judge by the nature of YHVH, water washed the old world away and fire will cleanse the latter years away and in between then and the end we have the hail.

Ezekiel 1:22 crystal
And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

The ‘terrible crystal’ is that dreadful ice – an impenetrable sea of ice. The Thor missiles could not penetrate that sea above. There are no satellites circling the globe earth. There is no space station, no landings on Mars, the moon or any other so-called object in space. This is nothing more than a big hoax to seduce the earth into believing fallen angels are being from other worlds. These angels fell from their abode above in the sea. From the sea above they came and to the sea below they will go waiting in exile until judgment. This is just as man came from dust and to dust he will return until the judgment.

The Bible tells us that the stars will fall to the earth and turn the waters bitter, wormwood.

Revelation 11:10-11
And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Remember that the north and south poles are both seas though frozen. We know that 1/3 of the angels fell with Satan to the earth. They are dwelling somewhere on the earth and wouldn’t it be interesting if they are found in the unreachable frozen seas of the poles? There are being restrained by the power of YHVH but one day they will have freedom to rare up their heads. Where else would they find an abode on the earth but in the waters below.

Another star, as angels are also referred to, shall fall again to the earth and when this happens it will be in the waters and thus the waters will become bitter. This is a great star, one of an enormous size, ‘megas’ as the Greek renders it. Whom might this star be?

Haggai 2:17 hail
I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the LORD.

YHVH’s purpose of using His judgments is that the sinner will turn to Him.

Ezekiel 18:32
For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

Revelations reminds us that there is a physical division between this world and the heavens above. None can approach the throne that is before it. We see there the four beast who ever stands before YHVH day and night saying Holy, holy, holy! How can sinful man expect to cross that barrier that separates us from our holy Elohim?

Revelation 4:6-11 crystal
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

This is not why man wants to cross that barrier of ice. Modern man just like Nimrod in his time want to remove YHVH from His throne, they do not want to worship Him. And they do not want Him in the picture for ever and ever. Ice keeps us away and fire will destroy all who will not worship for ever and ever.

Revelation 8:6-7 hail
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Judgment will come to us by means of hail which is solid water but finally it will be the fire that will clear away everything that exalts itself against the Most High.

Revelation 16:21 hail
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, 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.

First the hail!

Revelation 20:9
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

Then the fire!

Revelation 11:19 hail
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

For all eternity we will be reminded of what a great salvation we have been given just as Israel had the Ark of the Covenant to remind them of their great deliverance. You see, YHVH will always retain His nature throughout all eternity.

Revelation 21:10-11 crystal
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

The new Jerusalem will be after the nature of ice. “Clear as crystal” means just that, clear as ice, it will have a strong resemblance to ice. It will be of a crystalline brightness and I believe that can only be obtained if it is a city of ice.

Not only will the city be an ice palace decked in precious gems but the river that runs through will be a frozen sheet of ice. Yes, we will all walk upon water!

Revelation 22:1 crystal
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

The same sea that is before the throne will usher out the ‘clear as crystal’ river.

What an amazing study and words to ponder through and through. All these amazing studies in to His word refreshes the mind and the heart. It gives peace and comfort knowing that little-by-little YHVH opens the knowledge of who He is to us. Embrace Him and learn from His word.

Sometime the little knowledge of what has been revealed to us is not the sum of all things but just a little that at the next search leads to something more exciting than this one.

I thank those who read these commentaries and then send me something YHVH revealed to them that opens my eyes even more and seals deeper and deeper my love for Him in the name of Yeshua. I thank you because iron sharpens iron and you turn me into a verse I had read and reread dozens of times and not seen the light of it. Even in some commentaries I have already written you spake my interest again and again.

1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

We can read all the book of books He has given us and yet it will not enter into our hearts what He has prepared for us. Just know that He is more than we know Him to be.

If you find truth in this post please forward to others.

Why We Cannot Accept Things That Are Spiritual

The most difficult profession to sell on divine design are scientist. The most difficult profession to sell on physical miracles are people in the health profession. The most difficult people to sell on issues concerning supernatural and spiritual warfare are people in the mental health profession and so on and so forth. Unfortunately, we have a propensity to dawdle in our field of expertise which often carries over to other areas of our lives.

Many people live their lives by their wits, some by their logic and reasoning, others by only what they can see, feel or touch. Unfortunately, this does not leave much room for a Creator who is spirit and lives in a spiritual realm. We can even carry these very thoughts into the Christian’s way of seeing things. It is not difficult to have a professing Christian dismiss those things that are divinely ordained if they come in conflict with their education and professional background.

1 Corinthians 15:39-46
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

You see, there is more to the whole of creation than we are willing to acknowledge in sum. The scientist might submit to the terrestrial but not to the celestial. The physicist, astrologist might submit to the sun, moon and stars but not to the presence of angelic beings. The health care professional might embrace all things of the natural body but say no to everything of the spiritual body.

Even many Christians face these challenges with the word of YHVH because they have been trained in their profession to accept what their profession subscribes to and its beliefs and theories. We have learned to play god in our respective fields even if we are unlearnt and have no vocation we still have formulated in our minds a point of unbelief. An unlearnt person might have a profound faith in animalistic belief which in turn will hindered their ability to accept truth based on facts.

We all have our conflicts, but it is only with the deeper study of the word that we find ourselves coming to grips with sound doctrines and YHVH’s truth which passes all understanding. We cannot even begin to comprehend His wisdom thus we cannot comprehend how all things were made and are made. We embark in our faith disputing what does not fit into our particular expertise. Even ignorance is a sort of expertise.

Proverbs 8:22-30
The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

YHVH employed wisdom that is not found in men because we do not possess His divine all-knowing form of wisdom which is based on everything known from infinity to infinity. Solomon asked for and was given a specific portion of wisdom to help him judge Israel.

2 Chronicles 8-12
And Solomon said unto God, Thou hast shewed great mercy unto David my father, and hast made me to reign in his stead. Now, O LORD God, let thy promise unto David my father be established: for thou hast made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude. Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great? And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

YHVH extended to Solomon a minute portion of wisdom that no other man has ever possessed, though YHVH possessed all of wisdom including when He created the world. The entire sum of wisdom was in YHVH’s possession even before there was no depth. The word ‘depth’ is the Hebrew word ‘thowm’ which means an abyss (as a surging mass of water), the primeval ocean. Thus, when we read in Genesis 1:2, “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” The first act of creation was to bring forth waters which He moved upon – that is the depth – the abyss surging with water.

Isn’t it now more greatly understood why Yeshua told Zacharias that man must be born of first water and secondly of the Spirit. The Spirit of YHVH moved upon the water and Yeshua said we must be born of that first thing YHVH created and of the very Spirit that created it.

It is difficult for a believer to accept those things that are spiritual if they are not truly born of water so that the Spirit can enter in. YHVH cannot mover over upon the face of our being if we lack the water. Yeshua came to be that water wherein we are washed and are made clean as snow. The Holy Spirit imparts that Spirit of renewal into us crucifying the flesh of our sinful hearts. First the water then the Spirit.

When our fleshly heart and mind still tells us what to believe we fail to make the bigger connections. Therefore, Yeshua says we must be transformed by the renewing of our minds, Romans 12:2. We have conformed to the patterns of this world and we must make that break as believer in Yeshua.

The word ‘transformed’ means metamorphose, change, transfigure into another form. We want to be in Yeshua, but we don’t want to change. We don’t want to be that outer world changed person. That is the peculiar person the Bible speaks about. This is the point of rejection by all who know you because you become so strange to them. We want to be in Yeshua but in the flesh with our world views and philosophies intact.

When we hear insights from the word that does not align with what we have been taught or that is the norm we shut it down before pondering it. Somethings will resonate immediately in your renewed mind if you have searched the scripture time-and-time again. Other things you must seek further to find the truth of the matter. “Seek and ye shall find” is given as a promise to us, but we must first seek, that is our part.

Let’s look at a few examples:

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

This verse tells us that in the beginning YHVH created the heavens and the earth. The order of events tells us what is central to YHVH’s creation. The heavens and one other thing, the earth. Thus, everything else is in support of the heavens or the earth but the center of YHVH’s creation is first Him and all that pertains to His majesty. Secondly the heavens because it is His throne which is central to all His creation. Then we have the earth which He declares is His footstool. Everything that was added to the earth is in support of the earth, like the sun, moon, stars and all that is alive and placed in the earth.

What does this tell us? The earth is our center of this enclosed habitat. The sun supports life on the earth and the other luminaries give light in the night to the earth. This is a geocentric world not a heliocentric world. Thus, the truth is we are not the third planet from the sun because the earth does not revolve around it but rather the sun was placed in the firmament, the vaulted arch of the heavens. The sun support life on the earth and the earth is not a happenstance of the sun.

To remove the geocentric earth from creation is to abolish the very existence of YHVH and His kingdom. If YHVH is not directly above us as the Bible tells us, then who or what is there? The devil wants us to believe that there is nothing above us but an empty vacuum of space. Now that they have had centuries to fill our minds with this lie they are now filling up that vacuum with planets and vast universes light years away making our distance from our Elohim a lie.

Genesis 1:14-18
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

The sun is not the center of the universe but rather a light source fixed in the vaulted ceiling of the sky from which we cannot escape. We have been taught for so long this other representation that we can’t seem to escape the lie because only portions of our mind are renewed but we still have not been transformed.

Revelation 21:23-24
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

Those affixed luminaries will finally be replaced with the light that is the Father and the Son. So you see, the sun which we have been taught is the center of the universe will be removed because it is only a small thing affixed to time.

Let’s look at another example of how our minds have not considered some things that are spiritual.

Genesis 4:9-10
And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

How is this possible that the voice of Abel’s blood could cry out to its Creator?

Genesis 2:7
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 2:21-22
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

The Bible tells us that when YHVH breath into Adam he became a living soul. That word soul is the Hebrew word ‘nephesh’ meaning alive, to come alive with thoughts, desires, appetite, emotions, character and will. The inanimate became animated, acting out it existence. Adam began to interact with the physical world around him and we also know he interacted with the spirit realm because he possesses an eternal spirit element. The both saw YHVH in the Garden and the Cherubims.

Genesis 3:8, 24
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden….So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Adam and Eve were vastly beyond us in their interaction with the spirit realm. However, with the coming of the Holy Spirit we who are born again are privy to things spiritual like dreams and visions, prophecy and miracles unlike what the world experience. Many have had visitations and have experienced supernatural answers to prayers. We are not disconnected but reconnected through salvation and the Holy Spirit. We are only fully disconnected when we die in our sins.

It is this spirit element that we have a difficult time with. Somehow, we seem to think that is only a part of us that will be a reality in the world to come. But the Bile tells us that YHVH breath into man and he became a real living being and that when he sinned that spirit man in him died. Yet the story of Abel gives us insight into the unseen nature of man.

In Genesis 4 Abel was murdered and his blood cried out from the ground to its Creator. Now we must ask ourselves the question, “In what part of the human anatomy does the eternal spirit reside?” But the blood of Abel cried out from the ground. Man possesses both a physical and a spiritual body but where does one end and the other begin? Is it in death or do they both exist in the same shell in life then to part ways with the death of the physical body?

What part of the body host the spirit of man? Is the spirit like an organ or does it course through the body in the flow of blood or through the breath? Is the spirit of man both a consciousness of being alive and an entity like an inner unseen skeleton that keep the entire body glued together? Can the physical body exist without the spirit?

I think some of these questions can be answered from the stories of the many miracles Yeshua worked. We know that people who were possessed with demons still had their bodies although mentally and physically they lack control of it. Those people were not dead but rather their ‘nephesh’ soul was imprisoned in the body.

We know that when Lazarus died after three days his body was resurrected and his soul returned to it thought the body had begun to rot in the grave. The soul had left the body but when Yeshua called to him it returned to the body and Lazarus came forth fully intact.

On the other hand, Abel’s body having been buried in the ground and the blood drained out, it was the blood that cried out to YHVH. What then does this tell us about the blood? Can it be that having just perished the blood that bore the spirit of man was able to utter spirit to spirit to its Creator because it retained the soul and spirit?

After all this was the first spirit of man to exit the physical body. There was yet no place for it to go thus it languished in the ground from whence the body came. Solomon spoke in the book of Ecclesiastes about the spirit.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7
Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

In verse 6 he speaks about the soul of man that is somehow able to disconnect from the physical body by way of the spirit. The silver cord is that cord that remains attached to the body so that it can enter back into the body from which it came. The unseen nature of man exits the body via the spirit cord. This is what people refer to as astral projection. Solomon in all his wisdom tried this foolishness. At the conclusion he said, “vanity of vanities… all is vanity.” In other words, emptiness of all that is emptiness is emptiness.

Verse 7 Solomon tells us where the physical body will be disposed in when life leaves it and he tells us where the spirit will return to after the physical body dies. It is this way and should be no other way.

So how was Solomon and others who believe in esoteric beliefs can move the soul with the use of the spirit out of the body? How is the soul connected by a silver cord to the spirit? By what means or substance? This should tell us that there is something unique to the human body besides the physical that we do not consider.

Colossians 1:20
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

It is through the blood of the cross that we are reconciled to the Father. This means that spiritually the eye cannot see how man is cleansed from sin when we receive the gift of salvation. Something happens supernaturally in our being that transforms our consciousness to that of Yeshua’s righteousness which is imputed to us if we only yield to Him. The blood is cleansed both physically and spiritually. Through the natural blood function of the physical body oxygen is carried to every cell of the body. Connection - the blood and the breath. So, what is happening to us supernaturally when we breach the limits of the body?

If we are dissecting body parts and putting blood from one body into another and pumping the breath of life into different bodies, what exactly are we transmitting? That is the question that we must not have a knee jerk reaction about but with fear and trembling seek the truth of YHVH’s word, so we do not because of the lack of knowledge perish.

We cannot let what we have been indoctrinated with in the schools of world philosophy dictate to us the truth of YHVH’s word. This does not mean that we do as Solomon did and try everything under the sun. NO! Yet we must study the word because the world is getting more and more brazen at what it offers to us as science. What the world offers to us as medical breakthroughs are not what we as believers should accept or subscribe to.

We cannot let our professions stand in the way of the truth. Physicists tell us that the atom is the smallest most powerful element in the universe and I say that the scientist cannot see beyond the atom and if they could they cannot see beyond what they see next or even after that. Why? Because in all they see they refuse to see YHVH at the helm of it all.

The health professions say that blood transfusions work and organ transplants can extend life. Yet they argue over when life begins in the womb and at what point life is extinguished. They can see and study the cells but what about the unseen entity that floods through the blood or the electrical waves of the brain that can reroute or rewire a damaged organ and that person can return to his own consciousness or do they?

What is it that quickens a body back to life or causes a person to hang on when everyone else has given up on them. What is it that pulls a person back from the brink of insanity when physically and mentally the body has given up. What doctor or health professional can say for a certainty that what they are doing is totally with the consent of YHVH?

There is someone spiritual that is ruling this world. There is a force that is in this world in our body and in this physical realm that we can’t see such as our spirit and the fallen angels and disembodied demonic forces.

Ecclesiastes 3:21
Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

Everything has its final place. If this is so, then we must acknowledge that in life there is an element we can’t see and understand fully.

Genesis 9:3-6
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

Read what YHVH declares to Noah after the flood. The life is in the blood of the animal and it should not be consumed. The life of the animal or the nature of the animal should not be consumed. The blood of your nephesh – there it is, the blood that courses through the body is the nephesh, the soul of man. The word ‘lives’ is the word nephesh also. The flesh with the blood or in other words, the flesh with the soul in it one ought not to eat.

“At the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man” is saying when we shed the blood of man we are ending the life of man - “…for in the image of God made he man.” When the blood cease to course through the body it brings about death. This is why CPR is performed so the blood can begin again to course through the body.

How do we reconcile the word of YHVH with our ability to put blood back into the body, how do we reconcile ourselves to His truth when we are able to put back breath and organs into a shattered body? In the beginning it was not so until Genesis 6 tells us that when the sons of God came down they taught men all manner of evil until our hearts thought evil continuously.

This is an old evil even as the wise Solomon stated, there is nothing new under the sun and note we are under the sun because it is above us positioned in the firmament and we are not rotating around it.

On every level of conflict with the word of YHVH we only need to look as far as our earthly philosophies. If we only take the time to research the origins of that new procedure or the background philosophies of that founder or inventor, we will fine the originator of that deception. It all leads back to the lie in the Garden of Eden – “and ye shall be as gods.”

Every field of study tells us why this or that is right because to not accept or push their theories to the limits means they have wasted their time and resources. Every failure is their reason to push on to accomplish their theories because they fear failure – because failure brings with it ridicule from their peers. Never mind the true and Living Elohim who will judge them for breaching His boundaries, they do not fear what they cannot see.

Daniel 12:10 states, “only the wise will understand.” Yes, those that are wise in the word will understand and they will face the ridicule of others even those of the faith who do not study or pray to know the truth.

Nonetheless, Truth and time walk hand-in-hand! Some will accept the truth and others will wait for time for proof but then it might be too late.

As believers we should not be persuaded by anything but the word of YHVH. Neither politics, science, education, philosophies, astrology, astronomy, social issues or influential persons should cause us to relinquish every word that proceeded out of the mouth of YHVH. Not even ancient esoteric knowledge should influence us. The books of the Bible and those books the Bible specifically refers us to for further details should be the foundation of our thinking.

One of the first things Yeshua said when He began His teachings as a part of His teaching on the Mount is “Seek and ye shall find.” It is imperative that we seek and where we seek. Remember, the road to truth is a narrow road and very few find it. The more truth you find the dimmer this world will become because his kingdom is not of this world. If what we call truth is causing us to be more attached to this world then we must conclude that we are far from the truth. “In my Father’s house are many mansions” – that is the place we are striking for to make our eternal abode.

The only way to get there is to believe and receive those things that are spiritual despite the reality of this world. There are indeed things about us that we cannot see, it is these things that we must reconcile ourselves to and make decisions with them in mind. We must after all learn to walk in the spirit or we will fulfill the lust of the flesh.

If you find truth in this post please forward to others.
