Many times Yehovah says of Himself, “What I say, I will do!”
“Elohim (lawmaker, judge)(God) is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or, has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Num 23:19)
I Yehovah have spoken this. I will surely do so to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. In this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.’ (Num 14:35)
Abram, who has walked with Yehovah since 3 years old is a “chip off the ol’ block” and has many of the same characteristics that his Father has. Being a man of his word, is one of them. Abram said these words to Lot:
Jasher 15:42 But I pray thee separate from me, go and choose a place where thou mayest dwell with thy cattle and all belonging to thee, but keep thyself at a distance from me, thou and thy household.
43 And be not afraid in going from me, for if any one do an injury to thee, let me know and I will avenge thy cause from him, only remove from me.
44 And when Abram had spoken all these words to Lot, then Lot arose and lifted up his eyes toward the plain of Jordan.
Abram promised Lot that he would avenge his cause, and he made good on his promise. When Abram heard that Lot had been taken by the 800,000 men with Chedorlaomer, Nimrod and two other kings, he gathered together 318 trained men who had been born in his household and destroyed the 800,000 men. That is 2500 to 1 odds. The only ones that escaped were Nimrod and the other 3 kings. This was the short-term fulfillment of the sign that was seen in the heavens the night Abram was born and the dream that Nimrod had 52 years later:
Jasher 8:2 And when all the wise men and conjurors went out from the house of Terah, they lifted up their eyes toward heaven that night to look at the stars, and they saw, and behold one very large star came from the east and ran in the heavens, and he swallowed up the four stars from the four sides of the heavens.
3 And all the wise men of the king and his conjurors were astonished at the sight, and the sages understood this matter, and they knew its import.
4 And they said to each other, “This only betokens the child who has been born to Terah this night, who will grow up and be fruitful, and multiply, and possess all the earth, he and his sons for ever, and he and his seed will slay great kings, and inherit their lands.
Jasher 12:54 And as to what thou hast said concerning three men which thou didst see like unto thyself, and which did escape, this means that only thou wilt escape with three kings from the kings of the earth who will be with thee in battle.
And so it happened!
Jasher 16:7 And Abram heard this, and he rose up with about three hundred and eighteen men that were with him, and he that night pursued these kings and smote them, and they all fell before Abram and his men, and there was none remaining but the four kings who fled, and they went each his own road.
8 And Abram recovered all the property of Sodom, and he also recovered Lot and his property, his wives and little ones and all belonging to him, so that Lot lacked nothing.
This was the short-term fulfillment concerning Abram and his seed, but let’s not forget that “Father Abraham had many sons, many sons had father Abraham!” These sons are the spiritually born sons of Israel who are still being birthed the same day that Isaac was born on; that day is Passover, AKA “The Time of Life.” This day is also the same day that Isaac was to be killed by his father Abraham on Mount Moriah which is the same day and place that Yeshua (Jesus) was killed. These sons, with Abram, are the ones “who will grow up and be fruitful, and multiply, and possess all the earth, he and his sons for ever, and he and his seed will slay great kings, and inherit their lands.” They are the star, the banners, the shepherds, the rod, the “born in the land” sons and the seed that Yehovah spoke to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob so often about.
Balaam knew them as the plural “he,” Israel!
For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him; There! A people dwelling alone, not reckoning itself among the nations. (Num 23:9)
“God brings him out of Egypt; he has strength like a wild ox; he shall consume the nations, his enemies; he shall break their bones and pierce them with his arrows. ‘he bows down, he lies down as a lion; and as a lion, who shall rouse him?’ “Blessed is he who blesses you, and cursed is he who curses you.” (Num 24:8-9)
And now, indeed, I [Balaam] am going to my people. Come, I will advise you what this people will do to your people in the latter days.” So he took up his oracle and said: “The utterance of Balaam the son of Beor, and the utterance of the man whose eyes are opened; the utterance of him who hears the words of Elohim, and has the knowledge of the Most High, who sees the vision of the Almighty, who falls down, with eyes wide open: “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near; a star shall come out of Jacob; a scepter shall rise out of Israel. (Num 24:14-17)
The 144,000 and those who join them are the Star, who are seen in many places in Yehovah’s word. They are the sun or light of righteousness that will arise in the earth, as Yehovah has said. These men will be the giant killers of Yehovah in the coming last days just like their father Abraham was. We will see the strong-arm of Yehovah once again working on behalf of His called-out and set-apart men once again.
“Therefore, behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “that they shall no longer say, ‘As Yehovah lives who brought up the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘As Yehovah lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them.’ And they shall dwell in their own land.” (Jer 23:7-8)
