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 Biblical Art of Humility

It is impossible to think of Yeshua as someone who was not courageous as He faced death on the cross. He must also be seen as one of absolute humility, humbling Himself for the sake of the salvation of the world. He literally had to make himself bend in his heart and bend in the knees to accomplish His purpose.

Yeshua not only subdued but He also subjected Himself willingly.

In Hebrew there are four words I have studied that conveys the act of humility or to humble one’s self.

We have “kana” which means to bend the knee, be subdued, be brought into subjection, to humble oneself, to humiliate one’s self in the sense of attaining forgiveness, also as a means of reconciliation.

We see this depicted in 1 Kings 21:29 when Ahab humbled himself before Jehovah.

1 Kings 21:27-29
And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly. And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days: but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.

The meaning in this text is stating that Ahab bent his knees before Jehovah in an act of brokenness with a contrite heart when judgment was pronounced upon him. Ahab subjected himself to the mercy of Jehovah. He put on the clothes of humility and then bowed himself down to the ground, the lowest place he can go before Jehovah. This act does not only convey humility of heart but also an outright public demonstration of subjecting oneself to another.

Ahab desired forgiveness, reconciliation, and mercy. Ahab wanted to gain Jehovah’s forgiveness.

Philippians 2:7-8 states, “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”

Yeshua made Himself of no reputation Greek “kenoo:” abased Himself, empty Himself of His heavenly position, laid aside His equality with Elohim, deprived himself of reputation and caused Himself to be viewed as empty. All this He did for the sake of humanity to make salvation accessible to all who would come. It was His effort to bring reconciliation between the Father and His creation.

The text also states that He humbled himself, Greek “tapeinoo” meaning to depress, to humiliate himself, abase, bring low, to level, reduce to a plain, bring into a humble condition.

Yeshua had nothing to gain, but rather to give up all He had and was, including giving up the ghost so that others might benefit from this radical act of humility and humiliation. He lowered Himself to a level much below His status so that reconciliation could be achieved by His example.

I like what Proverbs 6:3 says, “Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.” This is very similar to what Yeshua stated in Matthew 5:25 “Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.” In other words when you see your adversary striking out at you, quickly agree with them, “isthi” give thyself wholly to them that you may avoid being betrayed, condemned, tormented, deliver up to treachery. In other words, think quickly and act with wisdom and give in so that they might not do harm to you.

The word agree does not convey acknowledging you have done something wrong but rather make hast and make amends lest the evil in the heart of your adversary betray, torment or act with treachery toward you. “Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.” Wisdom in this text means, take the blame and harmless is don’t strike back if you are outnumbered, outwitted and overpowered.

Ahab, hearing the pronouncement from the prophet “he rented his clothes, and put on sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly.” Ahab understood that it made no sense to argue with Jehovah concerning His pronouncement but only that he needed to show repentance and to walk softly – gently around the issue hoping Jehovah will see and respond favorably, and He did.

These situations are all descriptions of acts of humility. One, mercy was desired by Ahab, two, Yeshua willingly made Himself of low estate to secure mercy for the world, and third, one humbles themselves to ensure the aggressor does not overthrow them. It takes a lot to agree with your adversary because one must humble themselves and become as the weaker to save themselves.

You should read 1 Samuel 21:10-22:1 and see how David humbled himself by feigning mad just to escape his treacherous friends. “And he changed his behaviour before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard. Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, ye see the man is mad: wherefore then have ye brought him to me?” David was far from mad, but he understood he had to lower himself to a point of acting mad so he could escape. This is an act of humility, to step outside of your character, your position, your respectability, and your spirituality.

Proverbs 6:3 shows us another side of this picture. “Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.” Hear what Solomon tells his son, when you are attacked by a friend, in order to deliver yourself, humble thyself, “raphac” trample yourself down, prostrate yourself, submit yourself so you will deliver yourself when you are “come into the hand” besieged by your friend, or family, or acquaintances for that matter. It takes humbling yourself to escape the snares of a friend and anyone who is plotting against you or have cornered you.

The Bible demonstrates various acts of humility through situations encountered by various persons: wicked king Ahab, David, a man after Jehovah’s own heart, and our humble humbled King of Kings. They each responded to a difficult situation. In each situation the response to humble oneself was meant to achieve something, to acquire forgiveness, to make reconciliation or to escape.

To bring one’s self low should not be frowned upon by the faithful because our Savior demonstrated for us. Humility or the act of humbling oneself is a lost art even among Christians. We no longer see the need for such self-abasement because we live in a sophisticated world. People pride themselves on dominating their opponent to the point of humiliation.
We do not see that in this day and age we need to exhibit acts of humility, bowing the knee more often because we are in a day where the hearts of men are not lovers of men or Jehovah.

Again, let’s look at King David in 1 Samuel 21:10-22:1 when he feigned lunacy to save his life:

“And David arose, and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath. And the servants of Achish said unto him, Is not this David the king of the land? did they not sing one to another of him in dances, saying, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands? And David laid up these words in his heart, and was sore afraid of Achish the king of Gath. And he changed his behaviour before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard. Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, ye see the man is mad: wherefore then have ye brought him to me? Have I need of mad men, that ye have brought this fellow to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house? David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his father's house heard it, they went down thither to him.”

Can you imagine what humility David had to endure to appear as a lunatic before valiant men? But it saved his life. He was able to escape.

It was not Yeshua’s intent to escape His death on the cross, but rather than He become so humble that men would see the human courage and humility it took to purchase our pardon. It could have been that Yeshua could have descended in might and power and simply say, “thy sins be forgiven,” but it was not what He did. Rather, He took on the form of a man and suffered as a man would so that humanity could see that if He could rise above sin so could we. It was the example He desired to demonstrate. It was also the sacrifice He had to become, the penalty of sin is death and thus He had to die. The sacrifice had to be offered, in that where the first Adam failed, the second Adam, Yeshua, succeeded.

Yeshua literally became the epitome of humility in order to make us stand up and take notice. How many times did Yeshua had to humble himself and flee from the city because it was not His time to die? Imagine the humility of having to go softly about the people of His day just so He could purchase our pardon.

Ahab went about softly as not to anger Jehovah any more than he already had, “thou hast provoked me to anger,” (1 Kings 21:22). Solomon tells his son to bow himself before even his friend who is aroused against him. And Yeshua tells us to agree, humble yourself in the opinions of your mind before your adversary betrays you. Yes, sometimes you must make others feel there are in the right just so you can escape.

When you dwell among men, friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, etc., and to humble yourself in the worst of situations, when you know by just a few words you could level your adversary or humiliate them, you simply stay quiet. You take it, you endure, you persevere, like Yeshua, like David. And often we must for the sake of them, ourselves, to acquire forgiveness, reconciliation and to bring men back to their commonsense, dignity and respect for one another. Even to prevent them from doing something tragic. Meekness is not weakness. Restraint is power under control.

Micah 7:1-6
Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit. The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up. The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity. Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.

Micah is giving a description of the hearts of men in the latter days when Yeshua returns and He is ready to gather the firstfruits. He speaks of the evil in the hearts of all sorts of people. “The good man is perished out of the earth.” Where are they to be found? Then he shows us that there is no place safe for anyone. “There is none upright among men.” When you finally come to the realization that there is none upright you will begin to change the way you interact with people in general. Get out of their way. Learn humility fast. Find a way of escape and then flee. Put yourself somewhere out of their reach. Jehovah put Elijah in a cave.

Micah continues, “they ALL lie in wait for blood.” They don’t just want to harm you they want to kill you, they want to shed your blood so they can see they have afflicted you indeed. “They hunt EVERY man his BROTHER with a net.” These are not strangers, but your familiar friend, brother, family member. These are people that are close to your heart and thus when the blow comes it hurts even more and it is unexpected. They hunt you, pursue you, chase you down to do you harm.

What has happened to us that we have no grace and show no mercy? And with a net to boot! They bring along a means of capturing you, so you do not escape their snares. How many believers are walking into traps set up by loved ones? The news is filled with stories daily about betrayals amongst family members. Jerry Springer brought it to daytime TV. There is no honor in families today. How soon do family members forget the good, the love, the comradery of family?

“That they may do evil with both hands earnestly.” What does it mean with both hands? “…the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.” (Micah 7:3) In other words, they employ everyone they can find to support their destruction of you. The prince, the judge and the great man.

Everyone that is of importance to the relationship is employed in the hunt. Those who are the head, parents, leaders, those who ought to judge with better sense because they are in some position to govern and those that have been given a position of prominence. That is the entire family with all its resources and attributes being utilized to destroy another.

Micah tells us how to protect ourselves against the coming onslaught of bad character and evil intent of those whom we are in relationship with. “Trust ye not in a friend.” It is time to start evaluating the strengths of your friendships. It can’t be explained better than that. Keep your business to yourself. Don’t strain the relationship yet don’t divulge anything more. “…put ye no confidence in a guide.” In other words, don’t look to an intimate friend, mentor, someone you trusted for refuge. Begin slowly-by-slowly to find your own place of refuge. Seek Jehovah where He can be found. “…keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.” Yes, even your lover, soulmate you must learn to keep your mouth silent.

These are the days that are upon us. Matthew 24 tells us that in the latter days they will give us up.

“For the son dishonoureth the father,” meaning he will treat his father or mother with contempt. “…the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law;” they will impose themselves against the mother and the mother-in-law. A man has only the son to deal with, but Jehovah help that mother who has both a daughter and a daughter-in-law. The young will impose their wicked ways against the righteous mother. Not only the daughter of her womb but also the wife of her sons. “…a man's enemies are the men of his own house.” The word enemy is a harsh word, it means one who is hating or becomes one’s foe. The son will become the enemy of his father. Micah tells us that all this is evil. What makes it even more evil and become as wickedness is that it is all coming from within the family unit. This is all evident in our societies today.

It is time for the church to wake up and realize the days we are in. These are unsure days and calls for biblical understanding of the times and how to biblically deal with what we are facing. A spirit has entered the world touching close ties in ways we have not seen before. May Jehovah help us to learn how to be humble. We must learn how to take the egg to our face, how to recognize when Jehovah is moving you out of the way.

There were the days when we could truly seek reconciliation and have great expectations in the restorative power of forgiveness. Why is forgiveness so difficult to secure in these latter days? I believe it is because we are entering the days of 2 Thessalonians 2 when the power of the Holy Spirit is removing the restraint of evil from this world. Things will not improve unless we repent and turn from our wicked ways. It must be a complete turning away. With all the new laws we have enacted approving those things that are abominations unto Jehovah what hope do we have?
Examine every situation and see Jehovah’s hand in your life to insulate you, protect you or take you out of harm’s way. Learn to be humble in every situation even to the point of being abased.

Proverbs 29:23
A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

Proverbs 16:18-19
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Yeshua saw no shame in humility and neither should we. This will not last forever. Practice the art of waiting on Jehovah. He will plead your cause and He will deliver you. For your shame those that rise up against you will also have their day of shame. Those who had a hand in humbling you will receive what they sowed.

Micah 7:7-10
Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness. Then she that is mine enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her which said unto me, Where is the LORD thy God? mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.

Learn also to be contented in your situation. He who is single let him be single still. That eliminates one or maybe two or three adversaries, depending on how many sons you have. Don’t forget the in-laws that is added to the mix of family. She who is childless let her be childless still. That eliminates another adversary. Try to live on your own or in harmony if possible, with the members of your household. If it is not possible then find your own abode.

Those of you who think these words of Micah have nothing to do with the latter days, return and read from Micah 1, Revelation 14, and Matthew 24 to list a few other references. The language and imagery are there.
There are so many things we will face not just this issue of betrayal. This is only one aspect of the latter days. What is the answer to this aspect? Humility! Learn to be humble, to be a person of few words, to shun away from situations that might lead to conflict. Yeshua did. Every time the pharisees sought to kill Him he fled because it was not His time. It does not have to be your time – this moment I mean.

There is a place for humility even today. We live in a world where humility is not a virtue but a weakness. It is the most misunderstood act of reconciliation in our day. To humble one’s self before a friend or an enemy as stated in Proverbs 6:3 and Matthew 5:25 is still Jehovah’s way to reconciliation whether man practice it or not. It takes a broken and sincere heart to demonstrate such humility.

Yeshua, did nothing wrong but He took the place of humanity and humbled Himself, bent the knee so that man can be reconciled with His creator. You do not have to be in the wrong to humble yourself. You only need to desire reconciliation, forgiveness, or to find a way of escape.

Practice makes perfect. Meekness is not weakness. Yeshua practiced humility in various forms. So did David and so did King Ahab and many others mention in the Bible. The wisest man Solomon cautioned his son to practice the art of humility and Micah the prophet warns us to take care in the latter days.

People do not recognize acts of humility today because they neither practice it nor do they consider it a courageous act for one to lower themselves, to be abased at the feet of another. This is more so especially when one is humbling themselves before those that do not deserve such an express. Even more so, when it is done before one that is of no position, reputation or status. To fault it is to fault our Savior who humbled himself before the world. Even if your act of humility is not accepted by man, it will be accepted by Jehovah. The final analysis is to be pleasing to Jehovah and not man. He is our ultimate deliverer and refuge.

Philippians 2:9
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

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 Person Of Yeshua

Yeshua The Light of Heaven And The Light Of The World



Genesis 1:3-5
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.


The word “Day” is capitalized as a proper noun. Therefore, we know that the word Day is the name given to that which Jehovah created on the first day. Who is this Day? We also have the word “Night” capitalized which also makes it a proper noun or the name of someone or something. Who is this Night?

Let us first explore the light whose name is Day.

2 Peter 1:16-21
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

First, the text tells us who this passage is about. It is about our Lord Jesus Christ, the beloved Son of Jehovah. In this text He is referred to by three distinct descriptions: a light, the day dawn and the day star. Yes, He is all of these as we read in Genesis 1:5 Our Lord and Savior is called the Light and He is called Day: the day dawn, the day star, or as John writes in Revelation 22:16 “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star”.

Yeshua Himself declares that He is the bright and morning star.

Revelation 2:25-29
But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

A promise is given to the church of Thyatira that if they hold fast, they will be given “the morning star.” Who is this morning star? It is Yeshua. He is the first star to come into existence in the creation of all things. And Jehovah Elohim called Him “Light” the day dawn, the first dawn in creation, and the day star the first star of the first day of creation.

In Revelation 2 and 22 Yeshua is referred to as the morning star. This is not the first time we hear Him being called a star. Numbers 24:12-17 states it clearly:

“And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy messengers which thou sentest unto me, saying, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the commandment of the LORD, to do either good or bad of mine own mind; but what the LORD saith, that will I speak? And now, behold, I go unto my people: come therefore, and I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days. And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said: He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open: I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.”

After telling Balak that he could not curse Israel Balaam has a prophet vision from Jehovah. He tells Balak what the future holds for all those nations that mistreats Israel. He declares that a Star, a proper noun in this case as it begins with a capital letter, shall come forth out of Jacob. We know this Star is referring to Yeshua because He has a Sceptre and He comes out of Jacob. He is that glorious king of kings that will rule over Israel and the world.

Yeshua is called a Star in this passage, and in others a bright and morning star, a day star and the day dawn. How can this be? When Jehovah began His creation, the first creative act He did was to create His only begotten Son. Out of nothing He called forth the light, His Son to be the firstborn of creation and He called His name Day. He was that light. Revelation 21:23b tells us: “for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.” The origin of the light is Jehovah Elohim and the Son came forth in that light from the Father thus he also possesses Light.

John 1:1-14
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. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

First let me say that the word “was” in Greek is “en” in John 1:1 which means “to agree”. The root of this word is “eimi” which means to be present, to exist, to happen. Thus, we see that in the beginning the Word was present with God, the Word agreed with God and the Word happened, came into existence with God.

Before we carry on any further let’s take a look at Hebrews 1 and then return to John 1.

Hebrews 1:1-7
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.

Yeshua is the firstbegotten into the world exactly as Genesis 1:3-5 states. Paul in Hebrews 1 express clearly the person of Yeshua. In no way does Paul’s description of Yeshua diminishes His person. Why do Christian fear Yeshua being His express self, made in the image of Jehovah, being the firstborn of creation, in the brightness of Jehovah’s glory, being Jehovah’s Son and not Jehovah Himself? The trinity has been drilled into us so deeply that we fear even to catch a glimpse of Yeshua in His own person.

1 Corinthians 15:24-28
Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

Who is it that has put all things under Yeshua and who will Yeshua be subject to? It is Jehovah, Elohim, the Father that has put all things under His Son Yeshua. At the end of the age of time Yeshua, the Son, who is subject to the Father will put all things under Him, Jehovah the Father our Elohim. Yes, “…he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father.” Yeshua is His own separate person, first in creation by the Father, in agreement with the Father, in obedience to the will of the Father, empowered by the Father and Heir of the Father, all of that which He receives of the Father He will share with the redeemed. Yeshua and the Father will be the eternal light of the new heaven and earth.

Revelation 21:22-23
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 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.

In the new eternal heaven “the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple.” The Lamb is the light thereof. As it was in the beginning so shall it be in the end. The firstborn will abide in the new heaven and the new earth with the Father as that light that was from the beginning of the foundations of the earth. Yeshua is the Light that came forth from the Father thus we have in the eternal kingdom both being the light thereof.

2 Corinthians 4:6
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The truth is hidden from those that are lost or fail to read and study the Bible, that which is written. Satan has blinded the minds of those in the world, “lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Yeshua is the image of God but He is not God. Man was created in the image of God, but we are not God or gods. Yeshua is that light that came forth even before the darkness appeared as we read in Genesis 1:3-5.

In Hebrews 1:4 we read how Jehovah made Yeshua better than the angels. “Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they”. In order to redeem man, He made Him lower than the angels, but in the beginning Yeshua was made better than the angels. Hebrews 2:9 He was made lower, “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 creation He was made better but in manifestation He was made lower.

Hebrews 2:7-9
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.

Even Philippians tells us that Yeshua thought it not robbery to be made manifest as a man.

Philippians 2:5-11
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Being created in the form of God the text states but it does not say He is God. The word “form” is the Greek word “morphe” means shape or nature, the form by which a person or thing strikes the vision. The root of this word is “meros” which means to get as a section or allotment, a part due or assigned to one, destiny. Yeshua’s nature is that of the Father but He is not the Father.

He is equal with God as we see in Revelation 21:22 how the Lamb will be the temple in the new heaven and the new earth equal with “the Lord God Almighty”. They both will be that glorious light in the new heaven. He was the firstborn of creation and He was born as a man. We too must be born again in order to come to salvation. Yeshua was born as a man so that man might acquire salvation through His death. None of this takes away from the majesty of Yeshua so why do we Christian fear Yeshua being His express person? He made Himself of no reputation on our behalf.

How have we come to lose the truth of the nature and person of Yeshua?

2 Peter 1:15-16
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Peter tells the church that they did not follow “cunningly devised fables” yet today’s church had done just that. The church’s image of the person of Yeshua has been cunningly devised into fables of the trinity by the Roman Catholic Church and Constantine in his effort to unite his empire. The theology of Trinity was devised to camouflage the wordship of the pagan gods. The Roman Catholic Church is famous for syncretism in their religion. You can follow the link below to learn how ancient gods were viewed as trinitarian and it was adopted into the early church to control the masses not to enlightened them.

Peter tells us in the text above that Yeshua received from “God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Jehovah would be very arrogant or delusional to say of His own self, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Then Jehovah could be considered an eternal split personality. What we have been taught of Him by the false early church fathers are fables aligned with that of paganism.

The Apostles constantly warned us not to adhere to false teaching or stray from what we have already being taught.

Now we go back to what John declares about Yeshua.

John 1:1-14
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. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Yeshua was made by Elohim, He was with Him in agreement, he was present with Him as He is the first begotten Son and first in creation. Yeshua is that first day dawn, the day star, the bright and morning star, He is that light that came forth as the first created being. Genesis 1:3 states, “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” He did not call forth the light out of darkness but rather He stated, “Let there be light.” Then the light having come into existence darkness followed. Then He separated the light from the darkness.

Isaiah 45:5-7
I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

So, we see clearly that Jehovah formed the light, “Let there be light,” and when the light came forth darkness was created and then He divided the light, His begotten Son from the darkness. Yeshua did not come forth from darkness or in the midst of the darkness but rather He was the first thing created. Once the darkness appeared following the creation of Yeshua who is that first Light, the Day, the day dawn, the day star, Jehovah kept them apart. From that light came the Prince of Peace, Yeshua. From the darkness came the prince of the power of the air, Lucifer, (Ephesians 2:2) whose kingdom is darkness (Colossians 1:13). We will cover Satan’s existence later.

John 8:42-44
Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Yeshua states the facts clearly, “for I proceeded forth and came from God.” Yeshua is that light that came forth from God being in God’s express image of light. And indeed, God sent Him in the fullness of time to die for the sins of the world. In the text above Yeshua speaks of the nature of the devil, “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.” After the Light came forth darkness and after peace came forth evil. I believe this darkness and evil was encapsulated in the being of Lucifer. This is why he was clothed so beautifully so that because of his beauty he would dwell in the Light. The Bible says iniquity was found in him because it was there from the beginning.

Ezekiel 28:13-17
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 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.

Lucifer was led astray by his own beauty. He allowed the darkness to overshadow him until that which was hid in him came up. “Iniquity was found in thee.” The word “found” is the Hebrew word “matsa” meaning properly, to come forth to, i.e. appear or exist. Iniquity, sin, evil existed or rather was hidden, buried in Lucifer, but his arrogance opened Pandora's box buried deep within his nature. He became the ruler of darkness.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Lucifer having unleashed darkness into creation became the ruler of darkness.

John 1:5 tells us that the light shineth in the darkness and that light is Yeshua. John 1:7,8,9 each refers to Yeshua as “the Light” with a capital “L” denoting a proper noun, in this case another name given to Yeshua including the names, Day, the Light, a Star, also referred to as the day dawn, the day star, the morning star, the Lamb, the only Begotten Son. John 1:7,8,9 refers to Him as the Light, that Light and the true Light.

Yes, in the beginning was the Light and the Light was with God, and the Light was God. He is the Word.

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

The word “call” is the Hebrew word “qara” meaning to be proclaimed, to call out, be addressed by these names but not stating that He is God. These names are what He will be called by.

Matthew 1:21-23
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Matthew states clearly, Yeshua shall be called, Jesus, Emmanuel which is “interpreted” God with us, yet it does not say He is God. The word “call” in Greek is “kaleo” which means to call out aloud, to receive a name, to give some name to one, to bear a name or title and not meaning He is that person. The word “interpreted” is the Greek word “methermeneuo” which means to explain over, the root of which is “hermeneuo” to explain in words, expound. Jehovah in naming Yeshua thus expounded upon the nature of the Son who was made incarnate.

Yeshua is the Light, the first created in Genesis 1:3. The church has nothing to fear or be belittled by this revelation. Yeshua is who He is, the Son of the Most High and Almighty Elohim. He is His only Begotten Son. I have said before that the church in all its schisms have lost the whole truth. Each part of the divided church has taken an element of truth with it. With every split each segment of the church attached all manner of fables along with the truth.

We consistently reject every true doctrine attached to the many fallacies because we see them only as cults or runaway churches. It is time to sift through the debris left behind in the schisms so we can find the truth. The only way to do this is to read the Bible through and through, daily, continuously, again and again. In the Lat days Jehovah states in Daniel 12 that knowledge shall increase. We have for a long time attributed this increase to worldly knowledge but in truth even the knowledge of the truth of the Word of Jehovah shall increase.

If we do not read the word in these last days, we will be deceived. It is when we increase the study of the Word that we will come out of our fables and the truth will set us free. They are elements of truth in every church and that is how they get us to join. Stop joining and start learning the truth.

It behooves me when I hear a Christian teacher, leader, pastor or lay person explain away things they don’t understand. The Bible constantly states, “it is written” and he that has an ear let him hear.”

Revelation 1:3
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
In other words, the time is yet to come when we will understand.

Daniel 12:8-9
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.

It was not meant for Daniel to understand. The words were closed up for the time of the end generation. If you don’t keep studying when the time of the end comes how will you know what is truth?

Many believers know the truth or at least suspect the truth on many fronts but fear being ostracized for knowing the truth apart from the masses. They simply want to belong to the social club of the church. Do not fear the truth. If Jehovah reveals it, He can keep you in it. Remember the words of Yeshua concerning the Sower.

Matthew 13:18-23
Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

The first hearers don’t understand the word they hear, the second and third are just hearers of the word only, and the fourth not only receive and hear the word but also understands. The word is meant to be understood. The Word wants to be heard, He wants to be received and He wants to be understood unto salvation.

We have lost many great pure truths of the word. We have been told many lies because we have been blinded by the devil. The early church fathers would not have understood all the truths of the Bible because many things will not be revealed until the end of days. They obviously were not living in the end of days, but we are, OK, might be. It is for us to know. We have yet the Bible before us, so why forego what is meant for us, for our generation. The early fathers of the church tried to wrangle out of the Bible what they felt was truth in their day. Like Daniel they understood not.

Until you encounter the true Light how can you receive His words. If you do not know who He is how can you know what He said, why He said it and who it is for? Do not trust your eternal life to generations to whom the entire revelation was not revealed. Daniel’s book was shut up for the latter day’s believers. It is meant for us.

Study, Study. As time unfolds the truth will come clearer into the light. How many times did I stop short and then later on the Holy Spirit pushed me on? How many fallacies did I believe until the fullness of time? Believe wholeheartedly in what Jehovah reveals until that time of greater revelation. But you will not know unless you study. Pursue the divine.

After writing the previous pages, I spent some time meditating on the word and so I have included what has been revealed to me after the aforementioned. I am certain many verses will come to you as you read with enlightenment from the Holy Spirit. Make note of them and do not make light of it.

Yeshua is that light Jehovah spoke into existence at the very beginning, “Let there be light: and there was light.” He was the first light in Genesis 1:3 and He will be the final light in Revelation 21:23.

The stars were not created until day four. Genesis 1:16 “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.” Apart from the sun and the moon Jehovah also made the stars. The stars being referred to is not planets but the angelic host. They were created three days after Yeshua, two days after the division of the earth from heaven, one day after the earth, land, seas and plants. Yes, the heavenly host were not created until after all that.

When the Bible says the stars will fall from heaven it is not speaking about planets but rather celestial angelic beings. Even as Satan and a third of the heavenly host fell to the earth after their rebellion as noted in Revelation 12.

We know from Genesis 1:3 that the Light of day one was not the light of the sun, moon or the stars mentioned in day four of Genesis 1:16. The sun and moon were affixed in the firmament for signs, seasons, days and years as noted in Genesis 1:14. The text states, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven…” but not until Genesis 1:16 did it mention the creation of stars. Genesis 1:14-16 establishes the rule of the sun and its division from the night and the rule of the moon and its division from the day. It is in Hebrews 1:6-7 that we learn the purpose and nature of the angels: “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.” Is this why we see shooting stars in the night sky as flames of fire? I believe so. I stated in other commentaries that what we are seeing above are myriads of angels in the heavens above.

The Bible states that stars will fall from the sky in Mark 13:25 “And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.” Matthew 24:29 “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.”

I believe the stars the Bible is speaking about are angels. I do not know if the war in heaven is still raging as stated in Revelation 12. I do know that Job 1:6 tells us that Satan still has access to heaven as he appears in heaven when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah. We also know he is an accuser of the brethren as noted in Revelation 12:10, “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” So, Satan and probably other fallen angels still have some access to heaven. It might be these that the Bible is speaking of who will fall from heaven after the tribulation. They will be put out once and for all.

The light of Yeshua is to bring creation back from the brink. We know that when Jehovah created Yeshua, that first light of creation, that darkness and evil came forth. “God saw the light, that it was good.” (Genesis 1:3) Nothing is said about the darkness. It was merely divided from the light. It was only said of the light that it was good.

Genesis 1:4 the light was good. Genesis 1:7 God made the firmament and it was so. Genesis 1:10 the dry ground and the seas “it was good.”

Genesis 1:12 the grass, herbs and trees “it was good.” Genesis 1:18, the sun and the moon the two great lights, “it was good.” Genesis 1:16 “…he made the stars also.” Like the darkness, nothing is said about the stars being good or and it was so. I do not believe the mention of stars here has anything to do with the luminaries. Genesis 1:14 states, “let there be lights” and then defines the purpose of the sun and moon, to divide the day from the night, for signs, seasons, days and years.

Not until Genesis 1:16 do we read, “he made the stars also”. It is obvious that the light created on the first day is not any of these lights. The stars are the angelic host created on the fourth day. Hebrews 1:6 clearly states, “And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.” The angels were not created until the fourth day while Yeshua was on the first day. The angels being created on the fourth day are commanded to worship Yeshua the first created.

Hebrews 1:7 declares the nature of the angels. “And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.” They are not as the light of Yeshua but spirits and flames of fire. Thus, when we look into the sky, we see shooting stars, flaming twinkling lights. Genesis does not state the purpose of the stars, but we read throughout the Bible that there are ministers, messengers, for protection, for guarding, defending heaven, etc. I believe I stated this before and it is worth repeating.

This is how you will know you are on the right path. You will find the threads of truth throughout the entire Bible. From Moses, throughout the historical books and the writings, the prophets, the gospels from Yeshua’s own mouth, the Epistles and the book of Revelation will all bear witness to each other. The truth is there, seek and ye shall find.

" Finding God Again "



How do we reconcile ourselves with the Elohim of the patriarchs and the Elohim of the church fathers from the time they organized it into an institution? The Elohim of the ancients was one who dwell above the circle of the earth. The Elohim of the present is one that exist in a heaven no where to be seen or imagined. The further science pushes the universe pass the bounds of the earth the further away Jehovah is pushed away from us.

We are at a place in science where Jehovah does not exist, and many are falling away from the faith because they cannot see Elohim or imagine Him to exist just above us.

Job 28:24
For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;
This is the Jehovah of the ancients who knew that He existed above the firmament which separates the earth and the heaven above. It is because of this knowledge that the people at the tower of Babel decided to rise up and reach the door of heaven to pull Jehovah down from His throne. Man has constantly tried to find a away to enter heaven without the requirement of redemption and reconciliation to their Elohim.

2 Corinthians 5:10 states, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” There is no getting around this. Jehovah’s way is the only way and it is through His only begotten Son Yeshua.

2 Corinthians 5:17-19
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

This is the promised Jehovah holds out for all men from the foundation of the earth. We must be reconciled to Him in order to enter heaven and eternal life. We cannot get around this nor can we force our way in by tower, pyramid, spaceship or any other means. “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”(2 Corinthians 5:21) “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12) It is Yeshua only. (PERIOD!)

The ancients understood where Elohim dwelt but we today have masterfully been deceived to believe otherwise. Science has removed Jehovah from dwelling above the circle of the earth as they report sending rockets into space, having a space station and satellites where Jehovah dwells that now we don’t see Him or acknowledge that He is there. We have entered the narrative of the Starship Enterprise; we have to boldly go where no man has gone before to find Jehovah if He is anywhere to be found.

We all have been digitally connected to the same internet CGIs by NASA. There publish what they want us to know and think is there. We Christian claim to believe in Jehovah and His Son but when it comes to interpreting the word of Elohim, we explain His existence by explaining away His throne above.

The more diluted the Bible gets with its translations the more we see the new scientific NASA verbiage: “space” or the word used in the NCV, “something” as we read in Genesis 1 about the firmament. It is no longer a solid vaulted dome but rather an empty vacuum of space.

Take a look at eh words the many translations of the Bible uses: raki’a, expanse, dome, firmament (OJB), a space (NLT), an expanse (CSB, ESV, HNV,NAS, YLT, WEB), a dome (CJB, CEBA, CEB, GNT,GNTA, NRSA, NRS), a solid arch (BBE), firmament (LXX, ASV, RSVA, RSV, RHE, KJVA, KJV, NKJV, JUB, TYN, TMBA, TMB, WYC, WBT), a vaulted dome (LEB, NIV), a horizon (GW), a huge space (NIRV), something (NCV), sky (MSG)

We no longer believe the reports of the ancients and the prophets of Jehovah. A solid vaulted dome called the firmament separates the earth from the heaven above and Jehovah dwells above the firmament. Jacob saw a ladder reaching up beyond the bounds of the earth, John the revelator saw a door open in heaven, Ezekiel saw above the firmament, Elijah was taken up by a whirlwind into heaven, David saw the angel of the LORD standing between earth and the heaven, the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven poured water upon the earth during the flood, a voice was heard from heaven saying, “this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, the top of the tower of Babel was meant to reach unto the top of heaven, the shepherds saw a multitude of the heavenly host praising Jehovah and then departing from them into heaven, and there are other accounts. Seek and ye shall find.

We say we believe in Jehovah and His only begotten Son but yet we refute all accounts of them in heaven above us. Yes, He is a spirit and dwells in the spirit realm above which we cannot see with our eyes because there is a firmament, a solid dome above us. Nonetheless the ancients knew and believed He is there. The prophet Isaiah who prophesied the coming of Yeshua declares:

Isaiah 40:22
It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

You see the earth it like unto a tent with the curtain spread over it. This is a picture of the Ark of the Covenant also. The reference to the curtain spread like a tent over the earth is the picture of the firmament spread out over the entire earth.

Isaiah asked in Isaiah 53:1, “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?” We know that the Son of Elohim came to His own and they did not believe or receive the report that He was the Messiah being incarnate as Yeshua. A report that requires belief and faith was rejected. Even so, the truth that Isaiah also reported that Jehovah dwells above the circle of the earth is also rejected.

NASA has opened the idea of the solid vaulted dome not being there and has transformed it into an empty expanse of space that continues for lightyears upon lightyears in a universe that is expanding. Shows like Star Trek, Outer Limits, the Twilight Zone and other Hollywood productions have put doubt and fear into our minds. We have been systematically duped into believing there is an outer space of planets and maybe aliens to be encountered in that vast outer space regions.

The first book of the Bible in Genesis 1:6 tells us there is a firmament above us and Revelation the last book of the Bible tells us there is one. Even unto the last two chapters of Revelation we see that the firmament will be removed, and a new heaven and a new earth will be ushered in for all eternity.

Revelation 7:14-16
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

While in heaven waiting for the end of the tribulation, the saints will be before the throne of Jehovah. This text declares that the sun will not light on them nor any heat. Thus, we know that in heaven there is no sun. On the other side of the firmament there is no sun. The only light there is the Father and the Son. There are not many suns in the vastness of space as NASA claims. There no time in heaven so there is no need for a sun or moon to keep track of days and years.

Genesis 1:14 tells us that the sun and the moon is for signs, seasons, days and years. The earth alone dwells in the realm of time. Jehovah dwells in a timeless realm, and eternal immortal realm.

Genesis 1:14-17 declares that the sun and moon are set in the firmament. The word in Genesis 1:17 “set” is the Hebrew word “nathan” which means to give also means to add, apply, bestow, put, make. “And God set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth.” The sun and moon were put, added to, fixed into the firmament after the firmament was created. There is no need for lights of this type in heaven because, one, such lights are for signs, seasons, days and years and two, Revelation 21 tells us:

Revelation 21:22-23
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 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.

There will be no more sun and moon. NASA promotes billions of suns and moons above in their so-called vast empty expanse of space. The Bible gives no such description. Time only exist in this earth which has been encapsulated in a solid dome which some translations call a firmament by name. Jehovah exist outside of time. Time has only been reserved for the earth.

When time shall be no more the firmament will be rolled away. We read about this in the Bible but yet we do not compare what the Bible says to what NASA and other nation’s space programs and scientist propagates. The truth will set us free. Free from what? Deception.

The Bible tells us that at the end of time the firmament will roll away, be dissolved, will perish, will not endure, etc.

Psalms 102:25-26
Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

Isaiah 34:4
And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

Isaiah 51:6
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Matthew 24:29 ;35
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:

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Mark 13:24-25
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

Luke 21:33
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Hebrews 1:12
And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

Revelation 6:12-14
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.

Revelation 16:20
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

Revelation 20:11
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Revelation 21:1
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Revelation 21:22-23
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 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.

Time only belongs to the earth and as long as the earth endures there is time. At the end of time which exist outside of the realm of heaven, the firmament, the solid dome expanse, will be removed and time shall be no more.

Revelation 10:5-6
And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

Jehovah, Him that liveth for ever and ever, exist outside of time. It is He who created heaven and everything that exist in heaven. He also created the earth and everything that is within the firmament, the solid dome that is stretched out over the earth. When the fullness of times comes, at the appointed time set within the bounds of the earth, there shall be time no more.

Jehovah will merge heaven above and earth beneath when the firmament is removed. The references above from Psalms through Revelations speaks of the rolling away of the solid barrier called the firmament, a vaulted dome. It will be rolled back, shaken, folded up, varnish away like smoke, dissolved, passed away, fled away, like a vesture folded up, wax old like a garment, changed like a vesture, roll together as a scroll. All these pictures Jehovah has painted for us in His word so we might know the truth. Yet we do not believe what we read.

The ancients knew there is a firmament and that Jehovah reigns above this earth. Some tried to build their way above but to no avail.

Genesis 11:4
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

They managed to reach a very significant height. Some extra-Biblical books states they were at the point where it took one year to walk a brick from the base to the top of the tower. That is quite a height. (NOTE: Joshua 10:13 references the book of Jasher for further enlightenment yet this book is not included in our collections of 66 books) Genesis 11:4 states that the builders of the tower of Babel were intent and expected to reach a height unto heaven. They were obviously not hindered by the height as they progressed up the tower. The atmosphere of the earth had to have been different and very much acclimated to man’s ascent. This text tells us about the significant height man could hope to reach in their day.

How did the earth changed so significantly that now man cannot reach such heights without the use of oxygen apparatuses, insulated clothing and such vehicles as airplanes? A flaming sword was placed at the entrance to the Garden of Eden to keep man out and here an atmospheric barrier is put in place to keep us in. Even the atomic bombs in Operation Fish Bowl could not penetrate the bounds of the firmament.

Genesis 11:5-7
And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

Not only was there an apparent atmospheric barrier put in place, but the language was confounded so that man could no longer form a united front against Jehovah. Jehovah stated in the text that if they did not introduce change “nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” Yes, ancient man was smart, clever, inventive, even more so than us today.

Genesis 10:25 tells us that the earth was divided due to this act of rebellion. “And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.” And Genesis 11:16-17 states, “And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg: And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.”

The punishment was significant. The earth experienced a tectonic shift or impact. Man could no longer ascend up to the height of heaven, they could not communicate on a united front and they were separated by vast oceans and land masses. Jehovah was through in His execution of judgment.

There were Individuals who also experienced the reality of heaven above like Jacob.

Genesis 28:12-13
And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

The witch of Endor also experienced the reality of the depths below.

1 Samuel 28:11-14
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.

David understood that we exist within the space of the earth.

Psalms 24:1
(A Psalm of David.) The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

He too experience the reality of the transient visitors who entered the realm of time and stood between both time and eternity.

1 Chronicles 21:16
And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the LORD stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces.

John saw into heaven and knew expressly that He was viewing that which exist above.

Revelation 4:1-6
After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 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.

Ezekiel also was permitted to see into heaven above the bounds of the firmament.

Ezekiel 1:15-28
Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went. As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four. And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. 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. 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.

You only need to search the scriptures to see that Jehovah is real and His abode is above the circle of the earth. The lies of the world have made Jehovah to disappear – out of sight out of mind. The only difference between the words “WORD” and “world” is the letter “L” which is all a lie. It is time for the church to return to the truth of the word and acknowledge Jehovah in His abode above. Both the Old and the New Testament writers tells us that heaven is Jehovah’s throne and the earth is His footstool.

Isaiah 66:1
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?

Acts 7:49
Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?

We quote these texts, but we spiritualize their meaning. Sit on your sofa and put your foot on your ottoman and see the picture that Jehovah has painted for us. We cannot spiritualize that image away. You can continue to believe the lies NASA and now other nations in their so-called space programs are passing off as scientific theories.

They are all being manipulated by the father of lies. He wants to unite us in a common goal because he can’t restore the common language of the people or join again the land masses that once united us together. He therefore must find an idea a common venture to unite us eventually.

Jehovah will not stand for it.

How do you compel anyone to believe the entire word of Jehovah? As for the church, I find it is most difficult to even broach the truth within the church walls because many a pastor I have encountered quotes directly from their seminary teachings and denomination tenets. I have learned already that to even attempt to introduce anything other than their views is to suffer the embarrassment of being put in your place. How many times have I endured the pulpit wrath of a pastor countering my expounding on scripture?

Despite this, Jehovah always opens a door for the truth to come in.

I received a text recently relating something that happened at a fall festival event at a school. You all know that this fall festival thing is all about the ushering in of Halloween. One of her children’s friends showed off her henna tattoo and this mum asked her children if they wanted to get their hands done. The children replied, “Aunty said we are not to do such things to our bodies because the Bible does not allow it.” I am told this Aunty is quoted quite often. We are speaking about 8-year-olds. Why is it so easy for 8-year-olds and so difficult for adults to simply abide in the word? The world of science, philosophy and all the other world views have done its damage over the decades of constant indoctrination. Especially with the introduction of the space programs, many who believed in Jehovah have been damaged beyond repair.

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In the KJV Bible there are 783,137 words. Imagine that one so-called satellite CGI (Computer Generated Images) can destroy 783,137 words. The Bible paints us many pictures of Jehovah above yet the CGIs of today seems to blot out text upon text in the Bible.

You can find God again. You can discover what the ancients knew. You can know for a certainty the truth so that you are no longer being led astray. We cannot afford to be as a wave tossed to and fro with every scientific fabricated discovery.

What tangible proof do we really have about the moon visits. NASA claimed that decades ago we sent equipment to Mars to send us back data. They are now able to receive pictures from an antiquated computer system that they managed to update all the way from earth to Mars. Yet without a cellphone tower near us we cannot hope to make a simple call. Where are the cellphone towers, fiber optics that reach from earth to Mars that helps to upgrade an antiquated computer system?

In my neighborhood fiber optics lines were just laid so that we will no longer have need of a landline to connect to the internet. These are all distractions keeping us away from the truth. We should all be as a little child and just believe Jehovah’s word, lock, stock and barrel.

He is there, above the circle of the earth just as the Bible states. The further away they push Elohim the more doubt enters in.

The world governments are working on extraordinary ways to manipulate the environment so that they might deceive us all. We already see the environmental phenomenon that are occurring in the weather. Revelation 13 tells us that the devil will manipulate the heaven to deceive us to believe that he has power.

Revelation 13:13-14
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.

This is already beginning. We hear now from NASA almost on a daily basis about things happening in the universe, with comets, asteroids, shooting stars and such. Yet we have no proof other than their CGIs. Most Sci-Fi movies and action movies depict images from space and alien invaders as a means of systematically conditioning us for the devil’s end time lies. It takes many generations of such conditioning before the final end of days generations would fully fall under the devil’s spell.

In the school systems they teach how the universe is constructed based on Copernicus lies. There is not a school child in any country who cannot name all the so-called planets in our solar system according to this lie. The indoctrination is so deep and profound how can we now tell them it is not true.

To believe the earth revolves around the sun is to call the Bible a lie.

Joshua 10:12-14
Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. 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. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel.

To believe the Copernicus model of the universe is to deny Jehovah’s creation just as it is recorded in the Bible. If the sun is indeed the fixed object that is keeping this universe together then how can the Bible report such things as the sun and the moon standing still. Genesis 1:17 states that Jehovah set the sun and the moon in the firmament. It is the fixed solid dome firmament that revolves around the earth thus when Joshua told the sun and the moon to stay their course, they could without disrupting the balance of the universe.

It is time the church read the Bible with wisdom and understanding instead of with a corrupt education. Jehovah indeed has His abode above the earth. This is why we have the Auroras, the northern and southern lights, which reflects the heaven above.

The enemy has reduced our faith in Jehovah to a concept of God based on emotions fueled by a need for someone to believe in rather than it being a real fact – His very existence above the circle of the earth. If we cannot believe this fact then what we read in the Bible must all be discarded along with Genesis 1, the flood, the angels descending and corrupting the earth, the building of the tower of Babel, Jehovah descending upon Mount Sanai, His presence descending in the temple on the day Solomon dedicated it, Joshua halting the sun and the moon, the angelic host announcing the arrival of Yeshua, Enoch and Elijah going up to heaven, Ezekiel’s vision in Ezekiel 1 and John’s vision in Revelation 4, David seeing the angel of the LORD between heaven and the earth, and on and on we can go.

We might as well just say there is a higher power and be done. Like many who claim to be spiritual but do not believe in a real God. We can’t have it both ways. We can’t be like Elvis Presley who had a religious symbol for every major religion around his neck just in case. Jehovah is there, up above the circle of the earth.

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 British celebrating Gog and Magog


Gog and Magog

Genesis 10:2-3
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.
Here begins the origin of the people of Gog and Magog from Noah’s son Japheth. This lineage is also repeated in 1 Chronicles 1:5.

We are further told that it is from this son, Japheth, that the isles of the Gentiles were divided in their lands. I find this interesting because as we go further into this commentary, we will discover that Gog and Magog are synonymous with the Isles of Britain. You will read an exert concerning this below. I wrote a commentary some months ago about the Vikings coming from the northern Scandinavian isles and possibly beyond. These are significant to understanding the return of Gog and Magog. Perhaps I should have said the emergence of Gog and Magog.

Note: the word for “isles” in Hebrew is “iy” properly a habitable spot, dry land, a coast, an island, a shore area. Thus, we can conclude from this text that the Gentiles mentioned here are those who dwell in coastal areas or on islands. There is no need to look for Gog and Magog as though they are needles in a haystack because we are told exactly were the needle is located. The descendants of Japheth are seafaring people, coastal dwellers, islanders far removed from the Fertile Crescent.

When the earth was divided after the tower of Babel the land mass having been split, we find that it was Japheth’s descendants that set to inhabit the isles. Genesis 10:5 clearly states, “By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands.” Genesis 10:20 states in reference to Ham’s sons, “These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.” The mention of Gentiles is not noted in this verse. However, Genesis 10:32 states, “These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.” By this final statement of the sons of Noah the Bible only states, “…by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.” There is no mention of Gentiles. This word was only mentioned in reference to the descendants of Japheth. A distinction is made here between Shem and Ham’s descendants and Japheth’s. It is clearly Japheth’s descendants that are called Gentiles. This is the race of people who occupied the north quarters, so says Ezekiel, and their isles and to the farthest reaches of the rest of the descendants of Shem and Ham. There is clearly a racial and language divide. I have stated frankly in other commentaries those distinctions but from what the Bible states as is noted in this commentary you can draw your own conclusions.

Genesis 10:22-25
The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram. And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash. And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber. And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

We are told in this text that it was during the days of Peleg that the earth was divided. Peleg is of the descendants of Shem who remained in the Fertile Crescent after the scattering from the building of the tower of Babel. We know this because Abraham came out of the land of his father’s nativity in Ur of the Chaldees. (Genesis 11:26-28) It was from this place that Abram was called out. (Genesis 11:31-12:1) This area is the Mesopotamia region what we know as Iraq. Now you can draw your own conclusion as to why there is a push to eradicate the descants of that nation.

Genesis 11:8-9
So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

This text confirms a scattering of the people and many were removed afar from the main body of humans after the building of the tower of Babel and according to their languages. The earth was divided, and the common language transformed and due to a tectonic shift earth’s land mass was divided. We know that the descendants of Japheth scattered north, isolated for generations from the descendants of Shem and Ham. The Bible attest to this fact.

NOTE: Ezekiel 38:1-6 “And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.” Ezekiel tells us exactly where we can find the descendants of Japheth – in the north quarters. As I had mentioned in previous commentaries, the Vikings are those descendants who swooped down and raided, pillaged and mingled their DNA with those in the Europe and Asia. We know from History that the Vikings were seafaring warriors from the north. Genesis 10:5 tells us that Japheth’s descendants were divided in their isles/islands, shores, coast. They were the seafaring people occupying island in the north from Britain throughout all of Scandinavia.

“From around A.D. 800 to the 11th century, a vast number of Scandinavians left their homelands to seek their fortunes elsewhere. These seafaring warriors–known collectively as Vikings or Norsemen (“Northmen”)–began by raiding coastal sites, especially undefended monasteries, in the British Isles. Over the next three centuries, they would leave their mark as pirates, raiders, traders and settlers on much of Britain and the European continent, as well as parts of modern-day Russia, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland."
https://www.history.com/topics/exploration/vikings-history

We see the extent of their impact and can so note the genetic markers their left behind blended into those that were left of Japheth in the north. We can also surmise that perhaps not all of Japheth’s descendants were of the Vikings but also those that were raided as the Vikings emerged mingling their DNA with the rest of their extended family from Japheth. In modern-day Russia, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland we see these traits, tall, fair skin Anglos, red and blonde hair, green and blue eyes, which are telltale signs that the Vikings left their mark. The article above will give you further insights into the Vikings.

Why does the Bible give us all these clues to Gog and Magog? It is because when the time comes Jehovah wants us to know for certain that this is the fulfillment of His prophecies. He wants us to be able to identify Gog and Magog in the end time because the prophecies are specific to them and not spiritually speaking. The study of human migration will give even more insights but as I have often stated, Jehovah has left a remarkable amount of text in our 66 books to be clearly understood. If we seek we shall find.

The descendants of Japheth, having still the knowledge of what happened before the flood, still impressed by Nimrod’s transformation (Genesis 10:8-9) and having participated in the building of the tower of Babel this people, descendants of Japheth, or at the least a segment of his descendants, choose to follow the root evil of those caught up in the flood and those of Babel.

Genesis 10:8 tells us that by this 4th generation from Noah, men again dabbled in genetic manipulation. “And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.” This will be discussed in more detail below.

NOTE: Strange things happens within four generations. Genesis 15:16, “But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.” It was by the fourth generation of the promise to give the children of Israel the Promised Land that the people of Canaan were able to genetically alter their DNA making themselves giants. Thus, by the time Israel espied the land there were giants and genetically altered food. What was the iniquity of the Amorites? It was one that required total eradication like the flood. Jehovah told Israel to destroy all the inhabitants of the land because they had polluted themselves. Leaving any alive would mean that their altered DNA would continue.

Noah begat Ham, Ham begat Cush and Cush begat Nimrod who began to be a mighty one in the earth. The word “began” in Hebrew is the word “chalal” meaning to profane, defile, pollute, desecrate oneself. Thus, we can conclude that it was during the time of the tower of Babel, genetic manipulation was prevalent. How is it possible that mere humans could have built a tower up to the doors of heaven without people of superhuman height and strength? It happened before the flood, at the tower of Babel, and during Israel’s sojourn in Egypt as the Canaanites defiled themselves.

NOTE: Canaan is a son of Ham. Genesis 10:15 “And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth, And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite…” Before the flood all men corrupted themselves, after the flood, Nimrod, Ham’s grandson Nimrod by Cush defiled himself, and by the time the children of Israel were in Egypt, the descendants of Ham’s other son, Canaan’s son defiled themselves, these were the Amorites. The Bible also mentioned other giants and their families, the sons of Anak (Numbers 13:33), also called Emims by the Moabites (Deuteronomy 2:11), and called Zamzummims by the Ammonites (Deuteronomy 2:20, Og the king of Basham (Deuteronomy 3:11, and all of Basham was called the land of the giants (Deuteronomy 3:13), some giants dwelt at Ashtoroth and at Edrei (Joshua 12:4, 13:12, read also 15:8, 17:15, 18:16). Other giants are also mentioned in 2 Samuel 21:16, 21:18, 21:20,22; 1 Chronicles 20:4, 20:6, 20:8, etc. Ancient Race of White Giants Described in Native Legends From Many Tribes: check out the following link:
https://www.ancient-origins.net/myths-legends/ancient-race-white-giants-described-native-legends-many-tribes-005774

Genetic manipulation is nothing new to man. First the angels gave rise to them in Genesis 6, and Jehovah eradicated them in the flood, but man is evil continually, thus after the flood we dabbled again, and Jehovah divided/separated them from everyone else because He promised not to send a flood again. This time he calls them Gentiles. Before the flood they were called “nephilim” because they were a product of their fathers, angels, sons of God. The word “gentiles” is the Hebrew word “gowy” which means a troop of animals, or a flight of locust, heathen, or a swarm of locusts. The picture painted here is of a people with animal like behavior swoops down like locust devouring everything in their sights. The giants after the flood are called Gentiles because the original angelic father of the original giants, the Titans are imprisoned. Read Jude and 2 Peter. The manipulation of our DNA after the flood is man acting out of an animalistic nature.

The earth was divided, the language diverse and the people scattered so it is not difficult to understand that they would have taken their knowledge with them as they were scattered. Being isolated in the north quarters in isles for eons of time would have allowed some of them to continue in the way of those ancient practices of gene manipulation.

How is it that as we look to the history of man in the different far reaches of the earth many of the ancient ways still exist. Knowing the history recorded in the Bible can tell us much. One example is why there is much oil in the Middle East or in those places where man began his habitations? There was a flood that covered the entire earth and the people were amassed in the area of the Fertile Crescent or what I venture to call middle earth. Just image all the people, all the animal life that perished in the flood being deposited in a central area. How can this be, the Bible tells us that all flesh died and all in whose nostril was the breath of life. As the water receded, all the bodies flowed into a massive area of deposit.

Genesis 7:21-23
And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

Again, after the flood man continued to inhabit a common region of the earth. Tracing the migratory history recorded in the Bible will lead us to greater understanding. We can trace the scattering of certain people groups like Japheth’s descendants as Ezekiel clearly tells us they are located in the north quarters. Ezekiel 38:6

Genesis 10:5
By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

It was Japheth’s descendants that occupied the isles located in the north quarters after their tongue and by their families to form the nations that will be identified as descendants of Japheth. The evidence emerges in the history of the people of those places. Take for example the history of Britain as they annually celebrate their giant ancestors, Gog and Magog.

Gog and Magog
“Towards the head of the procession you may see two stern but benevolent wicker giants. They are Gog and Magog, the traditional guardians of the City of London, and they have been carried in the Lord Mayor’s Show since the reign of Henry V.”

The matter of Britain
“Gog and Magog, or sometimes Gogmagog and Corineus, are descended from mythical pagan giants and their origins lie in mediaeval legends of the early British Kings. The story goes that Diocletian – the Roman Emperor – had thirty-three wicked daughters. He managed to find thirty-three husbands to curb their unruly ways, but the daughters were not pleased and under the leadership of their eldest sister Alba they plotted to cut the throats of their husbands as they slept. For this crime they were set adrift in a boat with half a year’s rations, and after a long and dreadful journey they arrived at a great island that came to be named Albion, after the eldest. Here they stayed, and with the assistance of demons they populated the wild, windswept islands with a race of giants. Some time later Brutus, the great-grandson of Aeneas, fled the fall of Troy and by way of various scrapes arrived at the same islands. He too named them for himself, so we also know them as Britain. With him he brought his most able warrior and champion Corineus, who faced the leader of the giant brood in single combat and eventually hurled him from a high rock to his death. The name of the giant was Gogmagog and the rock from which he was thrown became known as Langnagog or ‘The Giants Leap’. As a reward Corineus was given the western part of the island, which came to be called Cornwall after him. Brutus travelled to the east and founded the city of New Troy, which we know as London.”

We find in this article that there is a history again of the daughters of men mingling with giants. In this case we can say that the DNA that came after the scattering of the people of the tower of Babel still existed on that island. When these 33 women arrived there, the island was inhabited by giants, the legacy of the Japheth’s descendants. We have this history of Britain and we have the history of the Vikings.

NOTE: In Genesis 9:27 we find that Noah cursed Canaan his grandson and that He also prophesied that descendants of Japheth will dwell in the tents of Shem. Knowing how this people defiled themselves we know now that those that are in the land are Gentiles perpetrating as Jews (Revelation 2:9), but we can tell this because visually they are not of the same race as Shem. Also, we can conclude that Gog and Magog might be very well behind the settling of this people in the Land. Indeed, look at the history of 1948 and see the powers behind that settlement. Also look at the powers that are keeping them there and you will see the hands of Japheth’s descendants at play. You only need to reread Genesis 10:2-3 (“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.”) in the names of the descendants of Japheth to discover the Ashkenaz thread in the people of the Land who claim to be Jews. Just as Noah said in Genesis 9:27, Japheth is dwelling in the tents of Shem. This topic was discussed in detail in a previous commentary titled “The Ashkenazi Thread.

The Culture of the Vikings
“The word ‘Viking’ comes from vikingr, a medieval Scandinavian term that can be translated as ‘pirate’, although it also refers to the simple act of sailing. It is worth remembering that only some of the medieval Scandinavians went to sea. Most remained in their lands, developing the culture and social life that they had inherited from their ancestors. They were, for the most part, independent farmers who herded animals, hunted, fished, and cultivated fields aided by the slaves they bought from their Viking compatriots.”

The Viking religion: A link between the Norse and Greek gods
“Like Christianity or Hinduism, a trinity presided over the Scandinavian religion. Thor, comparable to the Greek Zeus, was the Great and Mighty Lord, the protector of the law and crops, master of the storms, lightning, and thunder, which occurred whenever his huge hammer struck the clouds. The figure of Thor’s hammer was the Nordic symbolic equivalent to the Christian cross, and many wore it around their necks. Along with the majestic Thor, Odin, or Wotan, was worshiped, a very peculiar god whose main attributes – summarizing a lot of Scandinavian theology – were fits of madness. The warriors who ran head on towards the enemy were devoted to Odin, but so too were the seers in their trances, or the poets overrun with inspiration. Odin is like Hermes in many ways. Finally, Freya was the goddess of love, the Aphrodite of the North. She was inextricably connected with her brother and husband Frey, and between them, they looked after human happiness and prosperity. The obvious similarity between Scandinavian and Greek gods (two widely separated cultures) is an argument in favor of the existence of an Indo-European common origin, which would also include Hinduism. The names of the Norse gods remain in the English calendar and are still used today, while in Spanish they reflect the Greco-Roman gods: Thursday (Thor’s day), is jueves in Spanish, meaning ‘Jove’s day’ (from Jupiter or Zeus); Wednesday (Wotan’s day) is miércoles, meaning ‘Mercury’s day’ (or Hermes’); and Friday (Freya’s day) is viernes, meaning ‘Venus’ day’ (or Aphrodite’s).”

Thus, we also have inherited some of the pagan tenets of these people, so we ignorantly worship their gods or invoke their names when we refer to the days of the week. The history of these Vikings is also laced with reports of giants. Further personal study on this topic will reveal much.

Genesis 6:1-5
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 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.

They added giant DNA into the DNA of man. The text also tells us something significant, “and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Yes, this means even after the flood and even unto this day and age and also up to the end of days and even after the 1000 years reign of Messiah as we can read in Revelation 20. The seed of the fallen angels simply will not die until the appointed time.

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.

I believe many from the race of Gog and Magog have remained hidden at the north pole for eons. I venture to say this is the reason why many nations have prohibited the entering of these areas. Many claims have been made over the decades of giants living in that frozen barren land. Some have also claimed that great technology exists there and that there are hidden lands inhabited by giants.

NOTE: The Bible mentions time and time again about the four quarters of the earth. Many do not believe this to be truth because we have been taught for centuries to believe in Copernicus’s model of the earth. As long as we believe in this new model of the earth being a ball rotating around the sun we will remain in ignorance. Jehovah indeed sits upon the circle of the earth looking down upon us, thus He can see the four corners of the earth which He established upon pillars. There is a difference between a circle and a ball.

We see the altered DNA emerging once again to fight the last battle on the side of the devil. The Bible is clear that at the end of time, right before the last judgment, Gog and Magog will arise from the north quarters and other nations from all four quarters of the earth, God and Magog will gather for a final battle. In this last battle fire will devour the last remnants of the fallen angel’s DNA.

A previous commentary referred to the Vikings coming down from the north and razing the human encampments, pillaging and raping the women. History tells us how they eventually invaded and blended into the areas of Shem and Ham’s descendants. The question is constantly being asked about the missing link, but there is no question in the Bible that this link is the angelic DNA mingled with the DNA of man.

Daniel 2:40-43
And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 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.

We see how this people who are noted as strong as iron, angelic DNA, break in pieces and subdue all things. Yes, just look across the face of the earth today and you will see which race dominates, subdues and oppresses the descendants of Shem and Ham, which are the brown and black races.

You will find this topic discussed further in a precious commentary concerning the birth of Noah. Lamech was befuddled to understand why his son, Noah, was white like the angels. He thought Noah was one of their descendants. Noah was not white but an Albino. This is why we see this gene show up in the descendants of all of Noah’s sons. Albinism is due to the lack of melanin in the hair, skin and eyes. “The prevalence of albinism varies across the world. According to the World Health Organization, estimates vary from 1 in 5,000 to 1 in 15,000 people in Sub-Saharan Africa. In Europe and North America, 1 in 20,000 people have the condition according to the NGO Under the Same Sun.”
https://albinism.ohchr.org/about-albinism.html

Why are there more people with this condition in Sub-Saharan Africa than in Europe and North America where the DNA is much more defined by Anglo race? This angelic DNA seems hard to eradicate.

Yet the Bible tells us that their reign will not last, “as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.” Even now we see a divided kingdom, the human DNA is oppressed and still greatly divided from those that carry the angelic DNA. Thus, we see the emergence of wars, genocide and the likes.

“…the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken” because those nations though of the same mingled DNA can’t seem to come together in unity. Each nation is vying for their own power. They are constantly in competition with each other and at war.

Even as we see the mingling of the two DNA’s we are assured that they will not stay mingled. We are living in an age where we have more and more interracial offspring that is becoming more and more commonplace. The Bible states clearly that this mingling will not cleave. Jehovah will surely do something to bring an end to it. We get this so wrong because we only see not mingling as a racial issue of discrimination, but really it is a matter of defiling the human genome.

Genesis 1:26-27 states that Jehovah created man after his own image. 1 Corinthians 15:47-48 tells us that man is of the earth and the heavenly is of the heavenly. Avery things after its own kind. Hebrews 1:7 tells us the nature of the angels, spirit and flames of fire are after another kind. These two DNAs, one clay and the other iron were mingled before the flood and as we are doing today, experimenting with the human genome we too are mingling DNAs still left over from the time before the flood.

Another previous commentary discussed exclusively the CRISPR gene editing. They claim they are using this practice to edit out mutated DNA but how much are they not telling us. Surely if they can edit out, they can also add in.

How much altered DNA are you and I consuming without the benefit of knowing? Plant DNA is now being added to animal DNA and vice-versa in order to make food less susceptible to disease and insect damage. What is it really doing to the human DNA? I just read an article from the FDA warning women of childbearing age not to consume dairy products like milk and cheese because of the hormones and antibiotics given to cows. We are experiencing a rise in childhood genetic diseases. The issue of homosexuality, transgenderism and such is vastly becoming the norm. How is this possible? From many centuries to this one there is a quick significant change?

Scientific studies show that fish and frogs are changing genders from consuming contaminated river water polluted with chemicals and medications. These same chemicals we are breathing in and the same medications women have been taking for decades for one sickness or another. The seed of man has been systematically defiled and polluted. The Bible tells us that they will be a significant rise of the ancient defiled DNA.

Revelation 9:20-21
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

The word “sorceries” is the Greek word “pharmakeia” which means medication. It also means the use or the administering of drugs, poisoning. It is from this word that we get the word “pharmacy.” The root of this word is “pharmakeus” which means a druggist, or poisoner, one who prepares or uses magical remedies. Yes, in the time of the tribulation we see that the people will not repent of using or manufacturing drugs. Many souls will be seduced because of their dependency on drugs.

It is not only drugs, but certain medical procedures designed to extend life beyond the time appointed for man to live. Where is all this knowledge coming from?

Ezekiel 38:1-3
And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

Ezekiel new that the knowledge of Gog and Magog would be so important that he tells us the origin of these people as already written in Genesis 10.
Ezekiel also tells us that this people will arise against Jehovah and man not once but twice. Once before Messiah return as they fight for Jerusalem and then after Messiah’s reign as noted above in Revelation 20. Look who will join them in this great battle against Jerusalem, Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, Libya (northern Africa), Gomer, the house of Togarmah (Ezekiel 38). We have seemed to have forgotten our history or at least that which the Bible records.

Ezekiel 38:14-16
Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

Gog and Magog will rise again as a force to be reckoned with. Might we venture to say that the northern nations finally agree to conspire on this issue of taking hold of Jerusalem. This topic was discussed in a previous commentary. You will see from previous commentaries that with much more studies comes more enlightenment. Some things remain veiled even though glimmers of light are revealed here and there. But be faithful because Daniel said that in the latter-day knowledge will abound and that means in the word of God also. Gog and Magog have not disappeared from the history of men.

We think that because the nations of old do not exist today in their ancient dominions as mighty powers, that these biblical prophecies cannot come to pass. Or we spiritualize them by calling certain nations spiritual Babylon or spiritual Egypt etc. Ha! Just as Jehovah tells us in Amos 9:9 that not the least grain shall fall to the earth of Israel, so He is also able to raise again the nations of old because not one grain will disappear from the earth until He says so. You only need to trace the migration of these people groups and see where they are today to know that those nations still exist.

Why do you think there are wars in the Middle East to wipe out the ancient nations? The enemy thinks that by obliterating them the prophecies of Jehovah will not come to pass. This is also why he tried to pollute the DNA of the entire human race in Genesis 6 so that the Messiah would not come. But Jehovah preserved a pure human DNA in Noah and took him through the flood.

If you have two grains of human DNA in you, I believe with repentance Jehovah will not allow the iron to cleave. Behold we are born again, behold all things become new. The old man dies, and a new heart is formed. Yes, Yeshua came also for those who have been mingled.

To even for a moment spiritualize the giants of renown mentioned in Genesis 6, or the giants encountered in the Promised Land when the children entered, or the giants which remained when David encountered them is to call the biblical recounts of these historical facts lies. We see the manifestation of many of these latent genes over the course of human history. These genes we call primordial genes or ancient genes.

How could we doubt what the ancients knew when today we have made leaps in the fields of genetic manipulation, cloning, and so on. In less than a century mankind has astounded itself in the fields of science. It should not take a leap of faith to believe the reports of the Bible based on what we are accomplishing today.

NOTE: I find it not coincidental when I read reports of sightings of animals that scientist claimed had been long extinct. With all the genetic manipulation going on today in hidden labs, it is no stretch of the imagination to conceive that they are bringing back ancient species as we saw depicted in the Jurassic movies. There are now many millions of acreages stretched across the earth that are restricted by governments so they can do the unimaginable. Have such creatures just only now emerged from their hiding places, or have we gone so far as to extract their DNA from digs across the earth, and simply popped them in areas so they can take hold and flourish again. Some of these creatures can well emerge with ancient diseases that can wipe out present day animal life and man to boot.

Gog and Magog are real and will rise again just as the Bible states. History repeats itself because history becomes legends and legends becomes myths. But isn’t it interesting how science delves into the myths to make them become reality?

The ancient nations will rise again because Jehovah is not finished with them yet. As Jehovah states in Amos 9:9, He will not allow one grain of DNA, of true Israel, to fall to the ground. He can also cause any nations to rise or fall in its appointed time.

It is time to start taking Jehovah seriously. The rewriting of history and the redefining of creation has already caused us to be deceived in ways that many people will no longer listen to the truth.

When Jehovah mentions that the earth has four corners do you reject that truth because Copernicus came along millenniums after and rewrote creation by putting a sun at the center of the universe? But Jehovah did not put a sun at the center of the universe. Genesis 1 tells us that he made a firmament above the earth to divide the waters from above from the waters below. In that firmament, He placed the sun and the moon for signs, seasons, days and years. Job 9:6,26:11, and Psalms 75:3 tells us about the pillars that holds up the heaven and the earth. 11 Samuel 22:8, Job 38:4, Psalms 18:7, 82:5, 104:5, Proverbs 8:29, Isaiah 24:18, 40:21, 51:13,16, Jeremiah 31:37, Micah 6:2, Job 38:6, and others speaks of the foundations of the earth.

So, we read such things in the Bible but yet we don’t believe what we read. We say they are metaphors but not real. Yet we say we believe Jehovah created all things that are and those things also in the spirit realm, but we preached that it is only spiritually speaking.

Do you believe every word of Jehovah or do you just believe what you think according to science is plausible? Once I told myself it took faith to believe such things, but after searching the scriptures, I find that all these questionable things are substantiated in the Bible and in human history. Like the sower who when out to sow seeds, all the seeds of truth are sown in the Bible, but it depends also on what type of soil our heart is doe the truth to emerge without a doubt.

Note: Last commentary I mentioned Jehovah stretching out a curtain over the earth as He did with the Ark of the Covenant. If any of you scholars caught that mistake, I meant to say the tabernacle. But then again, He stretch out the wings of the two Cherubim over the top of the Ark of the Covenant. Jehovah does a lot with coverings: like a hen that gathers her chickens under her wings (Matthew 23:37, Luke 13:34), He covers us with His protection (Psalm 5:11, abiding under the shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91:1), He covers thee with his feathers and under His wings shall we trust (Psalm 91:4), He stretches out His hands against our foes (Psalm 138:7, He is your shade at your right hand (Psalm 121:5), His banner over me is love (Songs of Solomon 2:4), He covered Noah and his family in the ark (Genesis chapters 6-8, 8:13) and even Lucifer was the anointed cherub that covereth (Ezekiel 28:14) etc. The word covereth means to fence in, hedge, fence about, shut in, overshadow, screen.

Looking to the scripture for the truth about Gog and Magog is not difficult to find and when we look back at the history of nations, we will find a preponderance of credible evidence of the truths of the word. The Bible gives us a clear knowledge of the peoples of Gog and Magog and how in the end of days they will emerge again right before Yeshua’s return, as they battle for possession of Jerusalem, and then after the 1000 years reign of Messiah they will emerge for the last time against the saints in one last effort to tear the kingdom from Jehovah (Revelation 20:7-8).

How can this be? Given as much time as we have been given, man is evil continuously, so says 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.” Given time, man has a propensity to try to obtain eternal life without Jehovah’s requirement of repentance. The flesh wants what the flesh wants and that is lust in every area of the human soul. Delving into cloning, transhumanism, creating avatars, cyborgs, etc., is man’s efforts to achieve immortality. There is only one way to eternal life and that is by Yeshua and Him only.

Global warming might be the thing that pushes us back to the days of the tower of Babel where man again can conspire against Jehovah as one voice, one people in one narrative – to be eternally godless without God. It shall not be so. How do I know? The Bible tells me so.

The lineage of the ancient kings of Gog and Magog still exists. Look to the history of those nations and you will see. The lineage of the people still exists and one day they will rise at Jehovah’s appointed time. The Bible is not a legend nor a myth, it is history and prophecy and nothing but the truth. Because the children of Israel failed to wipe out all the inhabitants of the land of Canaan the DNA continues even unto now as primordial genes. Because of the separation of the people from the tower of Babel many segments of Japheth’s descendants emerged after millenniums in their newly fashioned states of iniquity.

Daniel declares that the DNA will not cleave in the end of days. Perhaps that means what we see appear might be significantly dwarfed in comparison to what it meant to be a giant. Isn’t it a wonder that DC Comics is making a killing at the box office with their mutants and pagan demigods, and people with strange powers and abilities are the norm for Netflix, HBO and TV series? We are being desensitized. We find entertainment in these depictions, but hardly many Christians are fascinated by the heroes of the Bible. Many will realize too later that these entertainment shows are far from fiction.

The Bible compels us to study to show ourselves approved unto God. Why? That He might reveal to us the truth at the appointed time.

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.



There Is Absolute Liberty In Yeshua



Romans 11 tells us that some of the branches were broken off so that those Gentiles which believe by faith might be grafted on. Whatever the root supplies so all the branches both Jew and Gentile receive of that same root.

Yet we are not under the law of that tree, which was given upon Mount Sanai, but we are partakers of the riches of the seed of Abraham who is Yeshua our redeemer, from the law, that put us in bondage until the redeemer came.

We are free because under the blood we come by faith and not by works. We cannot go back again and pick up the works of the law and again offer sacrifices, but we are to present our bodies as living sacrifices holy and acceptable unto Him. Yeshua is that final and timely sacrifice. There is no more need of the blood of bulls to be offered. Yeshua completed all those requirements once and for all.

Yet all the blessing of the tree we all do inherit from the root of the tree. The root will not cause us to be entangled again in that yoke of bondage. It sets us free to be at liberty to rest in the peace of Jehovah our Elohim. We are truly free indeed. It is by our faith through accepting salvation that we are branches grafted on to that olive tree and we all are richly blessed. Behold, we have both become one new man, both Jew and Gentile.

All those who come to faith through the blood of Yeshua will all inherit that eternal Sabbath day rest when time shall roll up like a scroll. We are assured this certainty as we partake as oft as we will in the breaking of the bread and the drinking of the blood which represents Yeshua’s sacrifice. This is our reminder that Yeshua is the way.

This is it; Jehovah represents every feast of the LORD in Leviticus 23 to demonstrate to us all the requirements necessary for redemption in the first place and for resurrection in the second place. Yeshua fulfill all those feasts and yet in those feasts, particularly, we note the feast of tabernacles which we know He will come again – to tabernacle with us and to reign and rule.

There is such liberty and freedom in Yeshua. Why do we keep the Sabbath but to remember that at the end of time we too will rest in Jehovah’s 7th day rest for all eternity? And that is it. What we do on the Sabbath is only a reminder of what is to come. It is not a ritual; it is not bondage it is merely a remembrance of the eternal day of rest to come.

How do we know it will be an eternal day of rest? Revelation 21 tells us that in that new world to come there will be no more sun or moon. Genesis 1:14 tells us that those objects were placed in the firmament to be for signs, seasons, days and years. Therefore, being removed there will be no more time – no means of calculating time.

Why do we take of the bread and the blood? It is so that we will always remember that it was Yeshua who purchased our freedom and that we came by it by faith and not by our own works. It is the representation of His sacrifice.

We are told to be holy as He is holy. How can this be? It is because once we access the mind of Yeshua we have access to His righteousness. We become a new creature. We can now live in the liberty of His sacrifice. Our faith is not complicated at all. The other requirement is to study the Bible to show our self approved unto Jehovah. This is how He teaches us, reveals Himself to us and how we come to understand the meaning of His prophecies.

Why do we make our faith so complicated? We don’t need another denomination, another split, another reformation, what we need is to believe that Yeshua is Jehovah’s requirement for sin and to live according to that grace wherein we stand.

The church is divided by denomination and thus we lack the fullness of the body. The loin of truth has deserted the breastplate of righteousness, the feet shod with the gospel of peace has deserted the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation have left off the sword of the spirit thus we find that we have all deserted the word of Jehovah. The entire church is the whole armor and we have left off each part while trying to find our way in an evil world. The church is finding it difficult to withstand because we don’t have on the whole armor.

There is a schism in the body, and it is only getting wider and wider. Why is there a schism in the body? It is because we do not want to live by every word that proceeded out of Jehovah’s mouth. We want to pick and choose what we want. Rather than reasoning together we opt for the part of the Bible that suits our lifestyle, our political views, or immoral and irrational behaviors. Some opt for presentation and others opt for duration and yet other opt for appearance. We are divided by form and fashion. You name it, every denomination and non-denomination believer are there for their own peculiar reason.

If I had a dollar for every pastor that told me Yeshua told them to start a church I would be rich. He never told anyone to start a church but merely to preach the gospel. If we only preach Christ crucified, dead, buried, rose and coming again we would be OK. It is disconcerting to ask a person what faith there are and hear them respond, Baptist or Adventist or Methodist or some other denomination. Where is Yeshua in all this? Even to talk about the cross and never mentioning Yeshua’s name is incomprehensible.

Acts 4:12 declares, under no other name can man be saved but by the name of Yeshua.

The power is in the name. No symbol can represent Yeshua unless His name is on it. But then to put His name upon an image is to put Him in a box., define Him in size and ability. Your God is only as big as you make him. If He can fit in the palm of your hand that is how big he is. If he can be placed as an image on the summit of Mount Corcovado in Brazil that is only as big as He is. Your God is as big as you make Him once he becomes an image, then it is not a god.

No image can take away from the name of Yeshua nor add to that name, but it can cause His name to be desecrate. An object can be spat on, torn, burned, broken etc. But the name, who can diminish it or bring it to a conclusion?

What temple is Jehovah more alive in than in temples made of redeemed flesh and blood. Solomon’s temple was destroyed once, but we are promised that in these redeem temples we do not have to fear who can destroy the body but He who can destroy both body and soul. Thus, we know this earthly flesh and blood temple is of more value. Revelation 21:22 tells us that both the Father and the Son will be the temple in the world to come.

It is time the church pays more attention to those things that are of eternal value rather than on those things that are of no benefit, neither temporarily nor eternally. Where is our liberty in Yeshua? Many believers I know are free in their denomination’s tenets but in many doctrines of the Bible they are in fear, bondage or in contempt.

How do we pluck the precious from the vile?

Acts 10:35 Peter declares, “But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.” I dear say, In every congregation he that fears Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him. V.36, “The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)” Many will be found in heaven that will definitely be a shock to some.

As for the law, Yeshua never broke the law but rather He fulfilled all of the law. Having His mind causes us to overcome the penalty of the law and to abide in holiness. The law cannot condemn us if we are washed in the blood through and through.

Yeshua has made us free from sin if we continue to live apart from sin. We are to live guided by that new conscience imparted to us by Yeshua. If that conscience condemns us in our actions, we know we have not left sin behind but if we walk in the spirit and do not fulfill the lust of the flesh, we know we are free from condemnation. The new conscience will guide us.
To live in that liberty, we must learn to be satisfied with our lives. But when we lust after the world and the things in the world we are drawn away by our own lust. At what point do you push the plate away and say I have had enough? How many times have I heard, one more promotion, one more raise, one more car, a bigger house, on more marriage, another few years to retire etc.

Lust will never let you be satisfied or be at liberty to see others happy or moving on up and you at your current place in life. Lust will always cause you to see the grass greener on the other side. Once you fall back under the spell of any kind of lust you will be drawn back to the law. It will put you back in bondage.

Just to say I have had enough, my plate is full, my cup has run over is liberty from this world. My plate beloved has not had everything on it, but it has always had what I needed. The cup that runneth over is the blood of Yeshua and from here to eternity it will never be emptied. The plate of this life and the cup of eternal life!

Only by reading the word you will know the heart of Jehovah for your life. In that knowledge you will be free in spirit and in truth. Just remember, every jot and every title will come to pass, and it takes every word that proceeded out of Jehovah’s mouth to set you free – and Yeshua is that word so says John 1:1.

Above all this is Yeshua’s command in Matthew 23:37-40, “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

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 relevancy of the Old and New Testament to Today’s Believer



There is a relevancy to both the Old and the New Testament standing together as one story. We live in an age where the believer is told to read the New Testament (NT) over the Old Testament (OT). We are often told that when the new covenant came with the death of Yeshua the OT became obsolete. There is no teaching more destructive to the gospel than such teachings.

How can one understand that they need salvation unless they understand that in the beginning YHVH created all things and that those whom He created in His image disobeyed Him? With that disobedience there came a gap between the creator and His creation. But YHVH knew that such would be the outcome of all His works and so before the foundations of the earth He had in place a plan for redemption.

The book of Romans tells us what an amazing gift of redemption we have, and the book of Hebrews tells us of the better covenant over the old covenant. What the old covenant could not do the new covenant completed leaving nothing undone.

Hebrews 10 tells us that the old sacrifices of the blood of bulls and goats were not enough to do the job. These were only a shadow of things to come which culminated in Yeshua being the ultimate sacrifice.

Hebrews 10:1-4
“For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.”

The old sacrifices did not purge sin but only covered it up until the Messiah would come and wash it entirely away. Yeshua went down and preached to those that were in the grave prior to His bodily sacrifice. Ephesians 4:7-10 “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)” You see, salvation was offered both to the dead and the living. How precious is our Father!

So, what did Yeshua purchase for us? Hebrews 10:14-22 “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.”

These are only some of the things that Yeshua’s death and resurrection has garnered for us. But why do we deny these advancements in our faith for a lie that we are not sanctified or perfected in Yeshua? We therefore put on a form of godliness and deny the power that be to change us. We preach one thing but then make the gospel a lie.

The book of Romans and Ephesians tells us that both Jew and Gentile have access to this marvelous grace. The root of the olive tree not only sustain the tree but all the branches on it and ensures it bears good fruit. If we are not bearing good fruit we must ask, which tree are we attached to?

We are the trees so say the scriptures. Mark 8:24, Ezekiel 31, Luke 17:6, see also Revelation 17:1,15. The Bible uses the natural to convey spiritual things.

I mentioned above that the OT was a shadow of things to come which did come in Yeshua. For example, look at the matter of the sons of Aaron, Nadab and Abihu who were slain while offering fire before YHVH. The word “strange” in Leviticus 10:1 is the Hebrew word “zuwr” which means to turn aside, to be a foreigner, to be with a strange woman, a prostitute, harlot, to be one alienated. Thus, we see that Nadab and Abihu turn aside from their duties to be with a harlot and then came and presented themselves before YHVH. They were defiled and thus were offering defiled fire and was struck down.

The OT brought judgment immediately. There was no grace period but rather a quick judgment. There are many depictions of this in the OT. The penalty of sin in the Bible is death. The purpose for the animal sacrifices were the depiction of death for the animal which meant life for the sinner. Someone had to pay the debt of sin – to die meant a sacrifice had to be offered.

But Hebrews 10:3 tells us that the sins were still remembered year after year. Those animal sacrifices were not perfect. But Yeshua being a perfect sacrifice gave His life that all who will believe might have eternal life and not eternal death. What the old covenant could not do the new covenant did.

2 Peter 3:10
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.

The NT tells us that YHVH is not slack in punishing the sinner but is longsuffering toward him in hopes that they might come to repentance. So, we have the advent and dispensation of grace. We are given an opportunity even after we have sinned to come to repentance. This is the love of YHVH that none should perish in their sins but have a chance to repent and live. Thus, rather than instant death we are extended a grace period so that we might come to our senses and repent.

You only need to read Ezekiel 18 to see that the sinner faced death, yet it did not please YHVH that any should perish.

When Nadab and Abihu sinned and were struck down, YHVH gave Moses the commandment for Aaron concerning how to come before Him. Aaron first had to wash himself, gird himself in his priestly apparel and then first offer a sacrifice for his own sins before approaching YHVH. Nadab and Abihu did no such thing, they just entered in and were struck down in their sins.

Just think how the OT covenant was a shadow of the NT covenant. Today many believers commit all manner of sins and then come into the church house rendering service and performing duties before YHVH and the body of Yeshua. Just because YHVH has not done to them what He immediately did to Nadab and Abihu does not mean we have gotten off scotch free. But YHVH is not slack concerning such things.

We are cautioned in 1 Corinthians 11 concerning taking the wine and the bread unworthily.

1 Corinthians 11:27-30
“Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.”

Somehow, we don’t make the connections from the OT to the NT. We think that grace gives us a get out of jail card, but it only delays the sentence if we do not repent. It is only when we repent, a broken and contrite heart, that death is turned away forever. This is because Yeshua suffered the penalty so that we do not have to. We ought not to neglect such a great salvation.

It is important that the believer read the OT and the NT to understand what YHVH has truly done for us in this dispensation of grace. To those who preach that we are not perfect and not sanctified they need to read the scriptures again to be sure they do not continue to trample the Son of YHVH underfoot. Sanctification is imputed to us - YHVH’s gift to us.

Hebrews 10:26-31
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

The word is clear, when we sin willfully after coming to faith and do not repent, we are trampling underfoot the Son of Elohim and do “despite unto the Spirit of grace”. Clearly, we have no excuse. We must stop lying to ourselves and to others about sin. Yeshua said “go and sin no more.” It is a command that can be kept because with salvation comes power to overcome by way of the Holy Spirit and the mind of Yeshua that penetrates us, and His righteousness imputed to us.

We are still cloaked in flesh, but we do not have to fulfill the lust of the flesh if we walk in the newness of the Spirit that has been raised in us. We have so many excuses that we no longer believe the truth of the gospel. We quote so many powerful scriptures that attest to our gains in Yeshua and then in the next breath we dismiss it all. We must cease from being double minded.

The OT is only the shadow of the grace that came in Yeshua. “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.” This is not something we are waiting for but those things we have already received in Yeshua. Our sins have been forgiven.

1 Thessalonians 4 tells us we are waiting for a change. 1 Corinthians 15:51-53 tells us that when that change comes, we will put on incorruption and immortality. Then we shall sin no more, but until our change comes, this does not negate or undermined the power of the Holy Spirit or the mind of Yeshua in us to transform us.

Hebrews 2:14-18
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.”

Yeshua became our example and can succor them that are tempted. But we must allow Him to succor us rather than yield to the temptation. The word succor means to bring aid, to help or relieve. So, we see that the word tells us that we are not alone because Yeshua not only identifies with our suffering and our temptations, but He is able to help us to resist and overcome.

Let the word of YHVH be your conviction. Let both the OT and the NT declare the entire story of repentance. Not only are both testament relevant to understand the need for salvation but there are equally relevant to understand prophecy.

Isaiah 46:9-10
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

If you don’t read the beginning how will you know what will be in the end? If you don’t know His laws how will you know what He is writing upon your hearts?

Hebrews 10:16
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

Hebrews 8:10
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

Jeremiah 31:33
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Some will say that these verses are only meant for Israel, but the Bible tells us that all who comes to Yeshua are grafted on to that tree and are partakers of the root. You only need to read the book of Romans and Ephesians to see that YHVH is not impartial. You can then read Isaiah 56 and see how YHVH has offered to the Gentiles the blessings of the Sabbath. Even them will He bring to His mountain and make them joyful in His house of prayer.

The entire Bible is relevant on every level. We read over and over again where Yeshua or the Apostles said, “It is written.” Where was it written? In the OT and repeated as evidence of divine prophecy in the NT. Reading in the OT you anticipate Yeshua, reading in the NT you find Him. He is that light, that promise given, He is the culmination of the law. He is the seven Feast of the LORD and He is the kinsman redeemer for the Gentiles.

Because of both the OT and the NT we will recognize Him as the King of kings and Lord of lords when He returns to rule and reign. In eternity we will see Him as the Lion and the Lamb, the Son and the Light of heaven.
You have every reason to begin again to read from the beginning so you can understand what is happening at present. You need to read so you know what you are becoming.

One New Man In One New World

Ephesians tells us that both Jew and Gentile in Yeshua have become one new man, the wall of partition between us has been broken down because of Yeshua’s shed blood. With access to salvation there is neither Jew nor Gentile for all have access. There is nothing that hinders the Jew and nothing that hinders the Gentile. The circumcised as well as the uncircumcised have access. There is no distinction between Jew and Gentile when it comes to grace.

Ephesians 2:11-18
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

While there are many who spend their time, money and influence trying to find, establish and preserve the tribes of Jacob they are at fault with Jehovah for Yeshua’s command is to go and preach the gospel to all men. Instead some have built a kingdom for Japheth’s descendants thinking they are doing Jehovah a favor. This is the time of grace and this is how this dispensation must be spent – preaching the gospel.

The prophet Isaiah says these words:

Isaiah 14:1
For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

You must read from verse 1-8 to understand the fulness of this text. “In that day that the LORD shall give thee rest is during the 1000 years reign of Messiah. Both Israel and the Gentiles will have a part in that kingdom time to come though the Gentiles will serve Israel for they will join with them.

We read the division of the nations in Genesis 10, so we note the distinctions of the sons of Noah and their descendants. The bloodline to Messiah came by way of Shem meaning “the name” which leads to the seed of Abraham through which salvation comes to the entire world – by this I mean all whomsoever will come to Yeshua by faith, Jew and Gentile alike.

Ephesians 1:4-6
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Before the foundation of the earth – singular – there is only one foundation of the earth and that is in the beginning. Jehovah, possessing wisdom, orchestrated the foundation of the earth with redemption as its core purpose. Jehovah knowing before the creation of the world that man and angels would defile His creation made a way back for humanity. There is no way back for the angels.

Jude tells us that some of the holy angels left their first estate, to compromise themselves and humanity.

Jude 1:6
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

There is no way back for them.

Matthew 25:41
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Jehovah included a hell in His creation for the devil and his angels whom He knew would sin from the get-go. Hell was not intended for man. The Garden of Eden was intended to be that eternal abode of man. We have no idea how long Adam and Eve lived inside that beautiful Garden of Eden until their sinned. This is the answer for all those who believe earth has existed for millions of years. For a thousand years is as a day to Jehovah. This would surely be enough reason for Adam and Eve to profoundly regret the error of sin for their long duration in that place of paradise.

The command was given in Genesis 1:28 for man to have dominion over all life on the earth and for that life to be fruitful and multiply. Those were the eons of time when all the DNA that Jehovah had put into all living creatures took on their forms after their own kind and the earth became filled with life. We also know that in the Garden life probably existed differently from that life outside of the Garden. We know that Genesis 3:17-19 tells us that the ground outside of the Garden was cursed and they would have to struggle in it to produce food.

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.

It is only outside of the Garden that death existed. We can also conclude that the animals that existed inside the Garden were of a different kind and the trees as well. Read Genesis 2:8-9, 16, 3:1-3, Ezekiel 31, Revelation 22:2

I do not believe eternal life existed outside of heaven and the Garden of heaven. Genesis 1:14-19 tells us that on the 4th day Jehovah established time. Time is a temporary function of the earth and thus we can conclude that anything that existed outside the Garden of Eden in the space time continuum would live and die according to its life span. It is to that place outside the Garden that Adam and Eve lived out their existence, Adam to 930 years.

The earth did not produce for them readily as the Garden of Eden did. We can also conclude that the climate outside the Garden of Eden was significantly different as they had to bring forth by the sweat of their face. It was harsh and now cursed apart from how it might have been before they began to live in it.

You will conclude from these verses that man lost Eden but, in the end, if we come to repentance we will return to Eden in that eternal life – whereas for the devil, his angels and fallen man they will all be cast into the eternal lake of fire.

Revelation 20:10-15
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 I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 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.

Hell was not intended for man.

2 Peter 2:4-9
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Thus, we see that Jehovah will not tolerate any type of unrighteousness either with angels or with man. He did not spare the angels who sinned before man and He will not spare man who sinned along with the angels. Both angels and man had a righteous beginning, the angels in heaven and man in the Garden of Eden. But the all-knowing Jehovah had a plan because His creation is worth all His efforts.

1 John 3:8
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

So, we see here His plan of salvation for man. The devil sinned from the beginning, but man most likely had eons of time in the Garden until the time their sinned. Where was Satan and the fallen angels during this time? Revelation 12 tells us where the devil and his angels were after their sinned and even now.

Revelation 12:7-9
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The Devil was cast out into the earth with his angels. While Adam and Eve live a long and blessed life in the Garden the devil and his angels were living in the earth. The Bible tells us that 1/3 of the angels sinned along with the devil. All these occupied the earth outside of the Garden.

What was Satan and those angels doing all this while. Isaiah 14, Jeremiah 4:23-28 and Ezekiel 28 gives us an idea. Thus, we see that the earth being eons of time old was inhabited. Let’s look specifically at two passages.

Isaiah 14:12-18
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. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

This is a description of what Lucifer and those angels did while occupying the earth and still are today. They employed themselves in building kingdoms, nations, cities, commerce, and merchandise.

Ezekiel 28:13-18
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 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.

First you must realize that Satan and his angels are spiritual beings though we do not know what form they were cast out in. We read in passages above in both Peter and Jude that hell is reserved for them with an eternal fire because they cannot die as we do. Some have been imprisoned or are buried until that time that is reserved for their judgment. “…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…” Fallen angels both still active and those imprisoned are awaiting their end. Even the Bible says that the devil knows his time is at an end.

I do not think the text in Ezekiel 28:13-18 is speaking about the termination of the Devil’s life, but rather about a termination of his works on the earth. We are told in Revelation 20 that Lucifer has many names: the dragon, that old serpent which is the Devil and Satan. We also read among the prophets of other names he used in the earth as he ruled and rules nations upon nations in the earth. The prince of Tyrus in Ezekiel 28, the Assyrian in Ezekiel 31, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon in Ezekiel 29:3, the king of Babylon in Revelation 18, Gog in Ezekiel 39. His works are constantly being deposed by Jehovah. Yes, he has kingdoms on the earth. Extraordinary stories have been told about these kings and more and how some were and will be again. Satan can take on any form he desires in the history of men.

Matthew 4:8-9
Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

The devil tried to tempt Yeshua with all the kingdoms of the world because he is the ruler of them all. It would not surprise me if we find out in the time to come that He was Nero, Mussolini, Hitler, Genghis Khan, or a Rothchild, etc. Either the devil was or one of his angels.

1 Corinthians 11:14-14
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

They have been here all this time existing among us transforming themselves. Isn’t it a wonder we see so many pictures of famous people in books of time past? We don’t want to allow our minds to go that far but we must. Imagine these angels living among us. Thus, we have warnings in the Bible about being unequally yoked.

2 Corinthians 6:14
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

I took this route in this commentary to demonstrate that there is a world existing alongside of ours that we don’t realize. It is thus because the devil wants to take as many of us with him to the lake of fire. Yet before the foundation of the earth Jehovah had a plan to stop the devil in his tracks if we only seek the salvation He sent.

I said in another commentary that Lucifer was both the anointed cherub that covereth and also the angel in which darkness and evil was hidden until he allowed it to be found in him. Yeshua is the light of the world and Lucifer is the darkness of the world – the bible states that Lucifer sinned from the beginning because of his own beauty. See Ezekiel 28.

Unless we see a needed to be redeem man will seek for his own eternity through medical and scientific experiments. Genesis 6:5 says “that every imagine of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” And let me say, nothing has changed in our hearts since then. First, Satan in the Garden in Genesis 3 tempted man to seek his own wisdom apart from Elohim and then the sons of Elohim in Genesis 6 taught men the secrets of heaven. And today we are still trying to seek those secrets.

Ephesians 1:3-6
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Before the foundation of the earth Jehovah predestinated anyone coming to faith in Yeshua to received eternal life and have access to the inheritance of the Son. Predestination does not mean Jehovah predetermined the exact people by name to come to faith. What it means is that He appointed for whosoever will believe upon Yeshua to be adopted into His eternal family.

If you read Ezekiel 18 carefully you will see that only those that endure will come to that blessed end. Ezekiel tells us that a righteous man can become a wicked man and die in his sins. He also tells us that a wicked man can become a righteous man and live. Ezekiel concludes that only the soul that repents shall live. Every man is free to make his own choice. Jehovah does not take away free will from any man based on His foreknowledge of them.

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.

1 Corinthians 2:6-9
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. 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.

This mystery was hidden and even the devil did not understand that once Messiah was crucified salvation would come to all men.

It is the will of Jehovah that all will come and live, but He is aware that this is not the case, thus the place He has determined for the devil and his angels is also determined for man if we reject this great a salvation.

Ephesian 2:11-18
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

So, we see that all the sons of Noah have access to faith. Even those of Japheth’s descendants who are called Gentiles also have access to eternal life. All also have access to the millennium kingdom of Yeshua and to eternal life.

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.

These verses are rather interesting as I take another look at them. These are the nations of Gog and Magog and there are at the four corners of the earth. Remember these nations came against Jerusalem right before Yeshua’s return and many were lost except for 1/6. Those who survived were driven back to the four corners of the earth. I take this to mean that they will be separated from the kingdom of Yeshua during His 1000 years reign but at the end they will come against Yeshua’s kingdom and his saints for one last time. Will men be included in this final battle against Yeshua?

I am thinking that as it was in heaven so it will be on the earth for this last battle. Revelation 12 tells us that there was a war in heaven. I believe this final war might be those fallen, casted down angels trying to duke it out against Yeshua and the saints. As it was in the beginning so shall it be in the end.

Also, just as it was right before Yeshua’s return so will it be again at the end of His earthly reign. We read about this in Ezekiel 39.

Ezekiel 39:1-4
Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

We know that this is not the time after the millennium kingdom reign of Yehsua because 1/6 remains but in Revelation 20, all are devoured.

Revelation 20:7-10
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. 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.

In this text we have the final judgment. In Ezekiel 1/6 of them remain and we can conclude they returned to the four corners of the earth from where they were hiding all the while. If you subscribe to Copernicus’s heliocentric earth, then you will not believe that the earth has four corners as described by Jehovah in the Bible – His geocentric earth. In the Beginning God created the heaven and the earth – His abode and the earth. The sun and moon were not created until the fourth day and only for signs, seasons, days and years. The earth does not revolve around the sun, but the sun and moon were affixed in the firmament which revolves around the earth. They have a specific purpose.

You can either believe man or you can believe Jehovah.

The Bible tells us that a third of the angels was cast into the earth with Satan so, where are they? If they all come up against Jerusalem, including a host of men, right before Yeshua’s return, and only 1/6 of that initial 1/3 are left, then where are they? I believe they returned to the outer borders of the earth waiting for a chance again.

As I said above, I am thinking that by the end of the millennium kingdom man might have come to his senses. There are no wars only peace. The lion lays down with the lamb and Yeshua rules with righteousness. Who would want to rebel, but then Revelation 9 tells us thus:

Revelation 9:15-21
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. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Do we finally come to our senses by the end of the millennium kingdom? Or do we once again join the fallen angels in one outright act of rebellion against Jehovah?

Isaiah 11:1-10
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

How might it be possible that man living in the age of Yeshua’s kingdom might rebel against a righteous king? The text does state, “and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” We have to remember that those that live through the tribulation both righteous and unrighteous will have a part in His kingdom reign. This was covered in previous commentaries. You can read the prophecies concerning Israel in Jeremiah and what life will be like during the millennium kingdom.

Back to the commentary, both Jew and Gentile will be in that millennium kingdom. Both have access to salvation. Though the Gentiles were aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, “commonwealth” “politeia” meaning citizenship, community, freedom, the administration of civil affairs, and the rights of a citizen, they have gained access through faith in Yeshua.

This means that the Jew can no longer say I have certain rights to which the Gentiles have none. By faith the two have become one new man. Ephesian 2:18-22, “For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God.”

Everything that Jehovah has offered the Jews He has also offered the Gentiles through adoption. The same thing He said about the Sabbath blessings in Isaiah 56 for both Jew and Gentile He also said in the New Testament about the rights of adoption. There is access.

Jehovah offers redemption for both Jew and Gentile. He also tells us about another redemption. The redemption of the earth.

Revelation 21:1,23
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea…. 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.

Even as Jehovah made plans to redeem man, He also made plans to redeem the earth. As Jew and Gentile has become one new man in Yeshua so the heaven and the earth will become one new existence in the eternal world to come. Heaven and earth will no longer be apart, because the firmament will be removed and there will be no more sun or moon or sea above that separates Jehovah’s heaven from the earth below.

As Jehovah removes the wall of partition from Jew and Gentile, He will also remove the wall of partition from heaven and earth.

Ephesian 2:14-16
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Even so the new heaven and the new earth will be one with that middle wall of partition between removed – the firmament. Can you imagine what that means? To be able to stand on the earth and look up into heaven having access to both. We will no longer exist in time and space. We will not be hindered by some space time continuum. There will be no going back or going forward because eternity is on continuous existence forever. There will be no death, no decay, no past, present and future but one eternal day where time cannot be measured. There will be nothing for science and physics to explain.

Yet a new life and community will begin again from a new spirit perspective.

Revelation 21:23-27
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. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

The word “nations” is ethnos” which we get the word ethnicity from. There in heaven we will have tribes and races minus the racism. Yes, heaven is a diverse place just read about the various types of angelic beings represented there. Man will be no different.

And yes, even kings will be there, meaning leaders of people, but Yeshua will always be that King of kings. There will be order and government in heaven. What Satan would not allow us to establish on the earth Jehovah and His Son will establish in heaven.

Neither is there marriage in heaven because we will not reproduce. The full complement of life will be represented in heaven at the end of time when the Lamb’s book of life is opened.

Matthew 22:30
For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

Revelation 22:1-5
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. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

We will eat and drink in that eternal world. And there shall be no more curse upon the earth. There will be no night and no sun. So those of you who still believe the earth revolves around the sun and need one to continue you need to reconsider by the word of Jehovah. The sun and the moon were only put in the firmament for signs, seasons, days and years. In the eternal life to come there is no such things as seasons, days nor years. The signs will all have been concluded for all prophecies would have been fulfilled.

Even with these glimpses of heaven we still can’t imagine the full extent of it. World without end.

Other verses about heaven:

Revelation 21:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Hebrews 11:16
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

2 Peter 3:13
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Revelation 21:10-21
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; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Revelation 21:27
But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Revelation 4:1-11
After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne. And he who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clothed in white garments, with golden crowns on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and before the throne were burning seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God,

What will happen to the old heaven and the old earth?

2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

The elements shall melt way with a fervent heat. That means that life as we know it will not exist anymore. The Greek word for “elements” is “stoichenion” which also means the elements from which all things have come, the material causes of the universe will melt away. The physical will all be gone but then the spiritual world will descend.

There will be no scientific studies in heaven, no medical research, no physics or the likes in heaven. There will be no universities or professions to learn there. What we need we will have. Like the angels who all have assigned task I believe we will all have our assigned tasked and be contented to do it. The problem with man is that we are not contented as like with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Eve was not contented with the knowledge Jehovah had already given her. She wanted more. In heaven we will have all we need, and we will be contented.

We shall live in a city, a glorious city in which Yeshua has gone to prepare a room for each of us. John 14:2 says, “In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” Not only will we have a personal place but also a place of citizenship and nationality and as members of one family – the family of Jehovah. As Yeshua submitted, so let us who have a mind to, let us also submit in that faith where there is no more Jew or Gentile so we may live forever under one heaven and earth – that eternal world to come.

If you can’t image what heaven is like how can you have a heart’s desire to go there?

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.



" How Amazing Is Jehovah’s Grace ? "


Ephesians 2:11-13
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Gentiles in the flesh, were/are far off from the Father in this world without Yeshua. It is only through the shed blood of Yeshua that they are made nigh unto our Father which is in heaven. Without Yeshua they are excluded from the commonwealth of Israel. Commonwealth” Greek is “politeia” meaning citizenship, part of a community, having all the rights of a citizen, included in the administration of civil affairs. Now by the blood of Yeshua the converted Gentile has access to the citizenship of the commonwealth of Israel.

Romans 11:17
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;

Paul in this text gives us a picture of this from the perspective of a tree having branches that are not natural to it grafted on. Being converted in Yeshua through His blood makes the grafted in Gentile branches susceptible to the nature of the tree it is grafted onto. It receives the same nourishment from the roots, it absorbs the same photosynthesis as the other branches, the same sap flows through each branch as the new tree. There is no rejection and no need to take rejection medicine.

Once the wound from the graft closes there is no distinction made that one branch is different from the other.

Ephesians 2:14-18
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

That middle wall of partition we read about in the Old Testament that says a stranger cannot enter the sanctuary or come nigh has been abolished through the blood of Yeshua. There is access because the enmity has been slain. To promote Israel over the Gentile believers or to promote the Gentile believers over Israel is not biblical. Although there is a blessing for Israel when the Messianic age comes in.

The graft has taken and the tree that is now made up of original branches and grafted on branches has become one new tree. But look how the Gentile believer enters into that commonwealth. There enter as a full fledged citizen. This is only possible if the grafted-on Gentile do not reject all the substance of the tree.

One might submit to an organ transplant, but yet the organ or the body in which it is transplanted into might reject the other. Is this possible in the body of Yeshua? Yes, many come but then they reject the teaching in full, they fail to submit in every form, the mind of Yeshua does not transform them because the lust of the flesh draws them away. Then the tree cast them off. Is this scriptural? Yes!

Romans 11:21
For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Woe to us if we do not take this warning. Even as I mentioned in the last commentary from Ezekiel 18 that a righteous man can turn away and die as can an unrighteous man repent and live. The only surety of having your graft take hold completely is to finish the race never doubting and never turning to the left or to the right. You must continue to eat and drink from that tree. A branch cannot be grafted onto two trees at the same time.

As much as the word of Jehovah prophecies many evil things to come because of sin, yet we should realize it also gives hope for those who will be wise in the word and live by every word of it. We take heed of the judgments that are coming upon the earth, but we must also take heed of this grace we have. This grace will not last.

Romans 11:25
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.

Once the fullness of the Gentiles comes to pass, then true Israel will return in full to Messiah. Their eyes will be open, and they will know that Yeshua is their Messiah. We see how this plays out in the tribulation when 144,000 are sealed to preach the gospel as noted in Revelation 7 and 14. Finally, Israel will fulfill her mission on earth.

True Israel and not the people that have currently settled the Land who have not fulfilled any of the promises Jehovah. True Israel will enjoy all the benefits of being back in the land when they return. They are not living in peace, Messiah has not yet returned to be their King, David has not returned to be a prince among them, and certainly Jehovah is not their Elohim. So says the prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 34. You must read the description of what Israel will look like as a nation when she returns to the land to know if the people who have settled the land since 1948 are truly who they say they are.

We must resolve to live in that commonwealth that we are a part of which includes both Israel and Gentile believers. That is the key, the branches are all believers whether Jew or Gentile. Yes, the Jew can only be on that tree if they believe in their Messiah and come to faith. There are no more offerings of sacrifices to be made, only Yeshua’s blood.

Hebrews 10:1-3,18
For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year… Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

Yeshua became that final atonement for all sins so that if conversion occurs there is no more conscience of sins. All previous sin will be washed away under the blood of Yeshua while up until His death they were only covered. Why is there still a conscience of sin? It is because we deny the power that is to change us. We lack the complete redemptive works of Yeshua because we have our branch on the tree, but our leaves are falling everywhere else. We cease from dwelling under the shadow of the Almighty. We believe but we don’t adhere to the life of the tree. In this case even the Jew and the Gentile branches are subject to be broken off.

Romans 11:18-20
Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 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:

We read that some of the Jew’s branches were broken off because of unbelief. But those that believed like the Apostles and the many others that accepted the gospel remained attached to the tree. There is only one way for both Jew and Gentile to enter the eternal life to come and that is both by the same means – the shed blood of Yeshua with ABSOLUTE regeneration present in each branch. The branch MUST experience regeneration where it is grafted on or else it will die.

We cannot experience the fullness of Jehovah’s promise in salvation unless the branch adapts and regenerate upon that tree that is not of the grafted-on branch’s original nature. The grafted-on branch must adapt or die. Why is this important?

Ephesians 1:10
That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

If we fail to adhere to the tree, if we fail to regenerate, if we fail to hang on to the tree, we have no part in the world to come. Jehovah’s end plan is to unite both heaven and earth in that eternal day. The last commentary made this comparison. As Jehovah unites both Jew and Gentile on earth through the blood of Yeshua He also will unite heaven and earth in that eternal life to come.

We must use this time here to prepare for that bringing together of the two worlds, heaven and earth. The only way this can happen is by conversion from flesh to spirit. Only the spirit can exist there. There will be no more flesh and blood, no more natural and spiritual, no more celestial and terrestrial, no more glory of one and glory of another, no more corruption and incorruption, and no more earthly and heavenly. We will all exist as one kind. Heaven and earth will merge as one new world.

That transformation begins here. The physical change will not occur until Yeshua returns and those that are dead and those that remain alive in Yeshua will be changed in the twinkle of an eye. But the mind and spirit undergo that transformation here in this dwelling, in this temple.

This is the dispensation of grace. After this time there is none other. We must finish the work here. This is the amazing grace of Jehovah that we can work out our salvation. We do it with fear and trembling because this is the only chance we get.

The more you see the truth in the Word the less appealing this world will be. It is knowing this truth that we look to the world to come. Many are still tethered to this world because they can’t see that new world to come. We get all sorts of advertisements from travel agencies so we see what we can indulge in and so we buy the all-inclusive package because we have a glimpse of what is being offered. The Bible gives us many views and more, but the only difference is the package has already been paid-in-full. The package is all-inclusive.

Revelation 20:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Yes, the amazing grace of Yeshua cannot be surpassed by anything offered here on earth. The commonwealth is open to all who will come. Our citizenship begins here. The graft will take hold if you only submit.

Many of you evangelist already realize how difficult it is to share the gospel with the unbelievers and even to speak the truth in the churches today. Many a believer has given up in their faith. The internet is full of everyone’s say on the Bible. But my question to you is this, What does the Bible say to you personally? How much time have you put into studying the word to come to the truth? If you are only seeking out other people’s belief’s and not putting your own time into the word you will be led astray.

The worst thing for me is to hear anyone quote from everyone except the Bible in a Bible study. I have heard it all, what the sociologist says, the psychologist, the scientist, the evolutionist, the archaeologist, the politicians and even what the Wall Street Journal says. How about let’s quote directly from Jehovah and all His prophets, His Son and all the Apostles.

Give the word its chance to convert you. The only way to tell a counterfeit from the real thing is to study the real deal that way when the counterfeit appears it jumps stands out for what it is. Many believers can’t tell the difference between the real Gospel and the deceptions. How can you rightly divide the word of truth if you have not read all of the Bible? If you haven’t given the Holy Spirit His chance to enlighten you in the word you will be deceived. No matter how many translations of the Bible we make, Jehovah has protected His word over the eons of time and not one jot or tittle will pass away. All I can tell you is to stick to the original. Watered-down medication will never heal.

As you read from beginning of the Bible to end of it time and time again you will see Jehovah’s amazing grace from beginning to end. You will discover how many chances He has given man. You will discover that before the foundation of the earth He planned for its redemption in Genesis 1:3. The first thing He brought into creation was the Light and Yeshua is that light. Genesis 1 did not begin with sin it began with GRACE.

May you find grace over and over again in the Bible as you read and reread.
