Spiritually Born Seed

Spiritually Born SeedGenesis 15 is all about Yehovah’s promise to Abram to give him “seed” [זרעך, ze·rah]. This word often gets translated as “descendants;” but to be clear, when Yehovah talks about “seed,” He is always referring to men. It is the man who carries the seed of future generations and it is the man who produces after his own kind; ha·a·dam (the man) begat seed after his own image and kind after the fall, not Yehovah’s. But we will see, in this chapter, that the seed Yehovah is promising Abram, is spiritually born seed  and this seed is Yehovah’s kind.

To really understand this portion of Yehovah’s word we must have a broad understanding of the Torah and Yasher in order to see how all the pieces fit together. Exodus 12 says that Israel, Yehovah’s spiritually born seed, came out of Egypt exactly 430 years to that very same day.

Now the sojourn of Israel’s seed who lived in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years–on that very same day–it came to pass that all the armies of Yehovah went out from the land of Egypt. (Exo 12:40-41)

This number always bothered me because I knew that Israel could not have been under Pharaoh’s rule for 430 years; the numbers just do not work. When Jacob came with his family to Egypt, Levi and his sons, Gershon, Kohath, and Merari, were already born and his daughter (their sister, Yochebed) was in uterus. She was counted among the 70 souls, but only 69 were enumerated in the role in Genesis 46.

Moses’ father was Amram, the son of Kohath, and his mother was Yochebed the daughter of Levi. So unless Yochebed had Moses at 350, something is wrong with this picture and I had to solve this mystery.

So how long were we in Egypt? Where does the count for the 430 years,to the very same day, begin? How does the prophecy, which Abram received in his dream in Genesis 15, concerning the 400 years of Abram’s seed dwelling in “Egypt,” fit into this story? And how does a man become a spiritually born seed of Abram, a.k.a. “Israel’s seed”?

When I read Yasher for the first time (7 years ago or so) some of these answers started to emerge, but it was not until I was preparing this lesson for my Sabbath class this week that all the pieces fell together. Here is what I found then.

Jasher 81:4 And at the end of two hundred and ten years, Yehovah brought forth Israel’s seed from Egypt with a strong hand.
5 And Israel’s seed traveled from Egypt and from Goshen and from Rameses, and encamped in Succoth on the fifteenth day of the first month.

This is the day that we began by eating our Passover lambs and goats; it is the 1st day of the feast of Unleavened Bread. And because I know that Yehovah does not change and His word endures forever I had to find out what happened 430 years ago on that very same day.

Armed with this new number (210 years we were in “Egypt”) I began to work backwards. The 210 years had to start with Jacob arriving in Egypt. So how old was Jacob when he arrived?

Pharaoh said to Jacob, “How old are you?” And Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The days of the years of my pilgrimage are one hundred and thirty years; few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.” (Gen 47:8-9)

Now, that was progress; 210 + 130 = 340 years; so I kept looking.

Next, in my quest to understand the 430 years, I asked, “How old was Isaac when Jacob was born? And I found that also.

Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them. (Gen 25:26)

I see it now, but I did not see it then.  Probably because I was looking for 430 years to that very same day and not 400 years to that very same day; 340 + 60 = 400! But my quest to understand the 430 continued with a partial answer right before my eyes. 430 years minus 400 years left a deficit of 30 years. Abram was 100 when Isaac (as we now know is the spiritually born seed) was born on the moed called “the time of Life.But in Genesis, the 1st time Yehovah makes his promise to Abram concerning the seed he is 75 years old. Augh! that left me a 5 year shortage; instead of 430 years I could only come up with 425 years. I shared my research with some friends but they also had no answers.

Finally the day came (about 5 years ago) that I discovered the missing 5 years. I was again reading Yasher (for about the 4th time) and this verse literally jumped out at me.

Jasher 13:17 And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram, and Yehovah appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am Yehovah who brought thee out from Ur Casdim to give thee this land for an inheritance. 18 Now therefore walk before me and be perfect and keep my commands, for to thee and to thy seed I will give this land for an inheritance, from the river Mitzraim unto the great river Euphrates. 19 And thou shalt come to thy fathers in peace and in good age, and the fourth generation [this is referring to Moses, the only other man in Torah to call Yehovah “adoni” / “my master”] shall return here in this land and shall inherit it forever; and Abram built an altar, and he called upon the name of Yehovah who appeared to him, and he brought up sacrifices upon the altar to Yehovah.

From the time Abram was 55, he had dwelt in Canaan for 15 year and in Haran for 5, before he left for Canaan, for the 2nd time, at 75 as recorded in Genesis 12. Yehovah first spoke to Abram about his seed, the spiritually born men, inheriting their land when Abram was 70 (at the end of his 1st sojourn in Canaan); and this solved the riddle for me concerning the 430 years to that very same day. What is it that Yehovah is teaching us about that very same and special day?

What day (that very same day) was it that Yehovah spoke to Abram? I have found that Yehovah speaks to His men primarily on His moeds; Sabbaths, new moons and feast days. That day, that very same day, was what we now call the Passover; but back then it was called “the time of life.” That very same day that Abram’s spiritually born seed, Isaac, was  birthed;  and the very same day that Israel’s seed, Yehovah’s spiritually born men, were birthed as well. Here is my out-line for both the 430 and the 400 year prophecies which Yehovah gave to Abram when he was 70 and when he was 78, respectively. So much to learn, so little time.

Abram’s Spiritually Born Seed

     0 Yehovah‘s promise to Abram
Jasher 13:17 And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram, and Yehovah appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am Yehovah who brought thee out from Ur Casdim to give thee this land for an inheritance. 18 Now therefore walk before me and be perfect and keep my commands, for to thee and to thy seed I will give this land for an inheritance, from the river Mitzraim unto the great river Euphrates.

+   5  years later Abram (75) departs from Haran
So Abram departed as Yehovah had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. (Gen 12:4)

+ 25  years after Abram leave Haran Isaac is born
Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. (Gen 21:5)

+ 60  years is Isaac’ age when Jacob is born
Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them. (Gen 25:26)

+130 years is Jacob speaks to Pharaoh when he arrives in Egypt with his family
Pharaoh said to Jacob, “How old are you?” And Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The days of the years of my pilgrimage are one hundred and thirty years; few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.” (Gen 47:8-9)

+210 Years in which we actually did live in Egypt
Jasher 81:4 And at the end of two hundred and ten years, Yehovah brought forth the sons of Israel from Egypt with a strong hand. 5 And the sons of Israel traveled from Egypt and from Goshen and from Rameses, and encamped in Succoth on the fifteenth day of the first month.

  ___
  430 Years Total

This means that Abram received this prophecy, when he was 70 years old, on the 15th day of the first month!

Oh my, the ramifications of this new knowledge is mind-boggling for folks  who will leave their doctrines and traditions of men behind and begin to learn only Yehovah’s words given through Moses.

WE are so blessed to have Yehovah’s word, in some ways more than Abram. He could not see what we can now see clearly if we will take the time and do the work to understand the message line upon line.

“Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.” (Isa 28:9-10)

  • Abram was in spiritual Egypt his whole life.
  • Ishmael can not be the promised seed.
  • Isaac and Israel’s seed were both born on the same day.
  • The “smoking stove” and the “flaming torch” that passed through the pieces in Abram’s dream was the “pillar of smoke and fire” which appeared with Moses and led us out of our Egypt and into Yehovah’s kingdom and toward our land.
  • All this is going to happen again!

Please consider joining my Sabbath classes each week; but be warned, these classes are NOT for those who love the doctrines and traditions of men that we have all learned. This is strong meat, for those who have eyes that see and a heart that desires to understand more.

Here is what we went through in this week.

144,000 (8) The Mighty Ones

I closed part 7 by saying,

“Those who come to Yehovah will be happy and content for almost a whole year after they join themselves (and their families) to the sent one nearest them. But in one single day something is going to happen which will turn the whole earth into a desolation and a wilderness. And it will be at this time that we will see these sent ones, these beings, these mighty ones go to war as the arm of Yehovah. You thought they seemed like “Gods” already? Wait until you see them fight. When the strength of the world comes against them, you will see Yehovah defend the few against the many.”

To understand the coming last days, we must have a better understanding of the series of events that will take place. And that is what this series (here is part 1) and my “Last Days” series is all about. These beings, these mighty ones, are the nation born in a day, at Passover and they are sealed and set-apart, as Yehovah’s Shalachim, His sent ones, at Shavuot.

It is at this Shavuot that people begin to come to Yehovah at each of these set-apart locations all over the world. It is in those locations that everyone who comes to them will receive provision, protection and instruction in righteousness.

But the elohim (the lawmakers and judges) of the world are scared; they see what is happening and realize  that all this trouble started at Passover the year before. So in a effort to ward off further loss of their workforce they will make a proclamation saying that there will be no more keeping of Passover. And this prohibition is the taking away of the eternal, the continual, the perpetual, the taw-meed (תּמיד, tâmîyd).

WordStudy defines taw-meed as: “A masculine noun meaning “continuity.” This word commonly refers to actions concerning religious rituals.’

And from the time that the continual H8548 slaughter is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is given, there shall be a thousand, two hundred, and ninety days. (Dan 12:11)

It appears to me that the elohim of the world will put forth this prohibition exactly 30 days prior to Passover with a warning that anyone who participates in Passover will be killed. Pharaoh tried to do the same thing. Yehovah told Moses to speak to Pharaoh.

Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “My son, My firstborn, is Israel. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me.” But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn.” ‘ ” (Exo 4:22-23)

This prohibition against the keeping of a true Passover IS the “abomination that makes desolate.” But we, Yehovah’s people, are going to do what He expects from us in each of our locations (all over the world); and because we obey only Him, we will see the might of the world come against us like a flood right after Passover.

So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. (Rev 12:15-16)

It is at this time that we will see the first of two great shakings in the earth. This one will plunge the earth back into the dark-ages and destroy the infrastructure of the New World Order (NWO). The moon and the sun will darken, cities, homes, factories will fall and the stars will be diminished. (I talk about this in my blog entitled “Are You ready for the Wilderness?“) This first great shaking of the earth which will kill / swallow the flood (which comes against us in all of our places), turns the world into a desolation and begins the 1260 day count-down to the great day of Yehovah. The second shaking will be more violent than the first and will seem as if the stars are falling as well. But what is falling from the skies are 75 pound chunks/hunks of burning brimstone (just like what happened in Sodom). In this context, you should also read my blog called “Will a True Passover Initiate the Great Tribulation?

Well, now things get very exciting for Yehovah’s shalachim, His mighty ones. Because they represent Him, the flood was not coming against His mighty ones (and all those who have come to them in the past year), it was coming against Him; and this attack on Him is license for Him and His host (His tse-va-ot) to go to war (in each of their locations) in order to make the whole world His. We are the mighty ones, a people who come, great and strong. The world will have no defense against us, we are the arm of Yehovah who look and act like, dare I say, “super heroes”.

The prophets of Yehovah talk about these men in many places, but Joel 2 is one of the most descriptive. They have the strength of a horse and can run as quickly, they can jump 75 feet in the air, they run between weapons and are not cut down; and when they yell / roar everyone around them pees their pants and runs away.  They  will not, and can not be killed!

Here is a  portion of Joel 2 for your consideration.

mighty onesBlow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of Yehovah is coming, for it is at hand. A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness.
Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. a people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been; nor will there ever be any such after them, even for many successive generations.
A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness. Surely nothing shall escape them.
Their appearance is like the appearance of horses [muscular and strong]; and like swift steeds, so they run with a noise like chariots; over mountaintops they leap, like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble. Like a strong people set in battle array. Before them the people writhe in pain; all faces are drained of color.
They run like mighty ones, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down. They run to and fro in the city, they run on the wall; they climb into the houses, they enter at the windows like a thief.

The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon grow dark, and the stars diminish their brightness. Yehovah gives voice before His army [His host], for His camp is very great. For strong is the one who executes His word. For the day of Yehovah is great and very terrible. Who can endure it? (Joe 2:1-11)

Even Yasher talks about Jacob’s 10 sons going to war against the 7 great cities of the Canaanites. This 7 day battle also starts with a great shaking of the earth which puts fear into the hearts of all their (Canaan’s) mighty men. 50, 60 70,000 die when Jacob’s 10 sons (all in their teens and early 20s), and 102 servants go to war along with their dad (105 years old) and his bow. Here is a sampling of what they can do, but you should take the time to read chapters 37 – 40 in Yasher. Here is a PDF, my latest working copy of Yasher, which I use in my Sabbath class each week.

Yasher 37:17 And when Jacob ceased praying to Yehovah the earth shook from its place, and the sun darkened, and all these kings were terrified and a great consternation seized them.
18 And Yehovah hearkened to the prayer of Jacob, and Yehovah impressed the hearts of all the kings and their hosts with the terror and awe of Jacob’s seed.
19 For Yehovah caused them to hear the sound of chariots, and the sound of mighty horses from Jacob’s seed, and the sound of a great army accompanying them.
20 And these kings were seized with great terror at Jacob’s seed, and whilst they were standing in their quarters, behold Jacob’s seed advanced upon them, with one hundred and twelve men, with a great and tremendous shouting.

Yasher 37:23 And Jacob’s seed came near and advanced against all these kings and their armies, and they saw, and behold it was a very mighty people, numerous as the sand of the sea.
24 And Jacob’s seed called unto Yehovah and said, Help us O Yehovah, help us and answer us, for we trust in thee, and let us not die by the hands of these uncircumcised men, who this day have come against us.
42 And Jacob’s seed caused fifteen thousand of their men to fall, and they smote them as if smiting at gourds, and the rest fled for their lives.

Yasher 38:29 And Jacob’s seed came near to break open the doors of the gates of the city, and the inhabitants did not let them, for from the top of the wall they were casting stones and arrows upon them.
30 And the number of the people who were upon the wall was about four hundred men, and when Jacob’s seed saw that the men of the city would not let them open the gates of the city, they sprang and ascended the top of the wall, and Judah went up first to the east part of the city.
31 And Gad and Asher went up after him to the west corner of the city, and Simeon and Levi to the north, and Dan and Reuben to the south.
32 And the men who were on the top of the wall, the inhabitants of the city, seeing that Jacob’s seed were coming up to them, they all fled from the wall, descended into the city, and concealed themselves in the midst of the city.

Yasher 39:7 And the inhabitants of Arbelan heard the noise of the shouting of Jacob’s seed, and their roaring like the noise of lions and like the roaring of the sea and its waves.
8 And fear and terror possessed their hearts on account of Jacob’s seed, and they were terribly afraid of them, and they retreated and fled before them into the city, and Jacob’s seed pursued them to the gate of the city, and they came upon them in the city.

When you see these mighty ones fight you will understand why Isaiah says, “those who wait upon Yehovah will renew their strength”.

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting Elohim, Yehovah, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths [the young men who never get tired] shall faint and be weary, and the young men [the strength and the might of the world’s armies] shall utterly fall, but those who wait upon Yehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. (Isa 40:28-31)

It is these shalachim (sent ones), Yehovah’s mighty ones (a.k.a the 144,000) and those who join themselves to them (as their “pure of heart” servants) who will be preserved through the great day of Yehovah at the end of the 1260 day’s tribulation and be brought into the millennial kingdom alive and well; just as Noah and those with Him came through the flood. Everyone else will perish from the earth and be forgotten forever.

I, for one, can’t wait to see Yehovah fulfill all the words that He has spoken concerning the coming last days; He always does what He says.

144,000 (7) Shalach – The Sent One

sent oneAnd one [a seraphim] cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is Yehovah of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man [eesh] of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, Yehovah of hosts.”
Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.” Also I heard the voice of Yehovah, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” (Isa 6:3-8)

Oh, how I want to say those words, “hin-Ni  she-la-Che-ni” to Yehovah; I WILL be ready when he calls because I am sold out for Him and have no covenants with any other elohim (lawmakers and judges).

[Note: This series begins here: 144,000 – Virgin of Israel]

Everyone will recognize Yehovah’s shalach or “sent one” as the last days begin; each one will have a pillar of fire and smoke over his head as a sign that Yehovah dwells with him.

The sent one is an amazing being. Ha – I said “being,” and can not think of another word to describe them; in part 2 I talked about them as being Yehovah’s khaw·seed, His kind, His seed and His heir. They are so much more than the Ger (the man who has repented, left the kingdom of his birth and joined himself to Yehovah and His seed, His born in the land men). And a Gentile, the walking dead of the earth, who still serves in the kingdom of men is nothing compared to even the Ger. But this rebellious Gentile can repent and become a Ger, and then, at Passover, he too can become Yehovah’s spiritual seed.

The shalach, Yehovah’s sent one, has His authority; the things he says, does, and the decisions he makes are all as if Yehovah had said, done and made them. Moses was a sent one of Yehovah. Many times he said and did things without specific instructions from Yehovah. Each sent one who Yehovah raises up and seals in the last days, to fulfill His purposes, will seem like a “God” to the world, just as Moses seemed to Aaron and Pharaoh.

Now you [Moses] shall speak to him [Aaron] and put the words in his mouth. And I [Yehovah] will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will teach you what you shall do. So he shall be your spokesman to the people. And he himself shall be as a mouth for you, and you shall be to him as God [לאלהים]. (Exo 4:15-16).

So Yehovah said to Moses: “See, I have made thee Elohim [אלהים] to Pharaoh, and Aaron, thy brother, shall be thy prophet. (Exo 7:1)

The sent one whom Yehovah is raising from their dry bones, in thousand of locations all over the earth, will lead the people who join them in their gates just as Moses did. Each man who joins himself (and his family) to them will find provision, protection from the world and be taught the correct way for a man and for a woman to live on the earth. Each sent one will see eye to eye with every other sent one when Yehovah brings back Zion (His spiritual people).

Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, With their voices they shall sing together; for they shall see eye to eye when Yehovah brings back Zion. (Isa 52:8)

Each sent one only needs to speak, and miraculous signs will follow. I think this is the reason that Moses failed to make it into the promised land; he was supposed to “speak to the rock” the second time and instead He hit it with the rod of Elohim, just like he did to the rock at Horeb. What he did violated a shadow picture for a future time when there is not going to be a rod for all of Yehovah’s sent ones.

There shall come forth a twig from the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots [this is a spiritual branch, not a flesh one]. The spirit of Yehovah 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 Yehovah. His delight is in the fear of Yehovah, and he shall not judge by the sight of his eyes, nor decide by the hearing of his ears; but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth. He shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. (Isa 11:1-4)

As I said in part 6 of this series, the sent one who is redeemed from among men lives through the great and awesome day of Yehovah (just like Noah lived through the flood) and possibly through the entire millennial kingdom. But there is still something even more”God like” concerning each of these men; they can not be killed.

Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of Yehovah is coming, for it is at hand: A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been; nor will there ever be any such after them, even for many successive generations.
As mighty ones [giv·vo·Rim] they run, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. And a man shall not trust another; every one marches in his own column. Though upon the weapon they fall, they shall not be wounded. (Joe 2:1-8)

Those who come to Yehovah will be happy and content for almost a whole year after they join themselves (and their families) to the sent one nearest them. But in one single day something is going to happen which will turn the whole earth into a desolation and a wilderness. And it will be at this time that we will see these sent ones, these beings, these mighty ones go to war as the arm of Yehovah. You thought they seemed like “Gods” already? Wait until you see them fight. When the strength of the world comes against them, you will see Yehovah defend the few against the many.

144,000 (6) – Redeemed From Among Men

The number “144,000” comes from the NT commentaries, NOT Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging word; and because of that, it is not a number that I am going to “hang my hat on.” But Yehovah is, even now, raising up a people (men) who will serve only Him in these last days, just as He said He would.

[Note: This series is best understood from the beginning; here is Part 1.]

redeemed from among menAnd who is like Thy people, like Israel, the one nation on the earth whom Elohim [the lawmaker and judge] went to redeem for Himself as a people, to make for Himself a name—and to do for thyself great and awesome deeds for thy land—before thy people whom Thou redeemed for thyself from Egypt, the nations, and their elohim? For Thou have made Thy people, Israel thy very own people forever; and Thou, Yehovah, have become their Elohim. (2Sa 7:23-24)

But now, thus says Yehovah, who created thee, O Jacob [flesh birth], and He who formed thee, O Israel [spiritual birth]: “Fear not, for I have redeemed thee; I have called thee by thy name; thou are Mine. When thou pass through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee. When thou walk through the fire, thou shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch thee. For I am Yehovah, thy Elohim, the Holy One of Israel, thy savior; I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in thy place. Since thou are precious in My sight, thou has been honored, and I have loved thee; therefore I will give men for thee, and people for thy life. Fear not, for I am with thee; I will bring thy descendants [seed, spiritual men] from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’ Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters [a woman is a daughter if she is bone of her man’s bone] from the ends of the earth—everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.” (Isa 43:1-7)

Oh, give thanks to Yehovah, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of Yehovah say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy [other men – belial’s seed], and gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way; they found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried out to Yehovah in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses; and He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to an encampment for a dwelling place. (Psa 107:1-7)

These “servants” of Yehovah in Jeremiah 23 are called by many names; the banner, the branch of righteousness, his arm, the male-child, the Ezrach man, Israel’s seed, the watchmen, a people great and strong, and a wild ox, just to name a few. This people is true Israel, the men Yehovah is raising up to be His shalachim, His sent ones, in the coming last days. And these are the men who are redeemed from among men. I talk about all these names in my video called the “144,000 in the scriptures.”

But what does it mean to be “redeemed from among men,” and how and when does it happen?

The word redeemed is the Hebrew word ga·al’ [גאל]; and a man is redeemed by his near of kin.

H1350    גַּאל    gā’al: A verb meaning to redeem or act as a kinsman-redeemer. The word means to act as a redeemer for a deceased kinsman (Rth_3:13); to redeem or buy back from bondage (Lev_25:48)

Yehovah told Moses, to tell pharaoh, to “let Israel, My son, My firstborn go that he may serve  me.” And through Isaiah He says,

For thus says Yehovah: “You have sold yourselves for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money.” (Isa_52:3)

Right now we (men) can leave our Egypt freely and choose to serve only Yehovah; and then, at Passover, become Yehovah’s spiritual seed (His son) and the first-fruits of His spiritual kingdom.

They sang, as it were, a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. (4) These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes Yehovah. These were redeemed from among men, being first-fruits to Elohim. and to the Lamb. (Rev 14:3-4)

[Note: You will have to read part 5 of this series to understand my very purposeful strike-outs above.]

All Israel’s first-fruits and those males who open the womb (the matrix) always belong to Yehovah. We bring the first-fruits and our first-born to Yehovah because He is the one who gives us the increase of our body, our animals, and the things that come from the ground (which he also gave to us). It is during Shavuot that we bring the first-fruits of the wheat harvest to wave before Yehovah; and it will be on Shavuot that Yehovah seals and sets-apart those shepherds who are redeemed from among men for His purpose.

All men come from the dust and they all will also return to the dust.

In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.” (Gen 3:19)

All flesh would perish together, and man would return to dust. (Job 34:15)

You hide Your face, they are troubled; You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. (Psa 104:29)

All go to one place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust. (Ecc 3:20)

But these servants are like Noah, wholly righteous men (enoshim); and, like him, they too will be coming through the last days of our world alive. And more, they will be “the great ones” in the millennial kingdom and the rulers, the el, over each of their gates.

I have a hunch that all these spiritually born men, true Ezrach Israel, the virgin,  those who separated themselves from the world in order to wholly follow Yehovah in all His ways, may never die. Their women, their children and perhaps even their servants who come through  the destruction of the earth with them may eventually perish in the new world. But is it possible that these spiritual men, selected and set-apart by Yehovah to be redeemed from the earth may live for the whole 1000 years?

The way of Yehovah is strength for the upright, but destruction will come to the workers of iniquity. The righteous will never be removed, but the wicked will not inhabit the earth. The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, but the perverse tongue will be cut out. (Pro 10:29-31)

Behold, the day of Yehovah comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it. (Isa 13:9)

For Yehovah loves justice, and does not forsake His saints (his khaw·seed); they are preserved forever, but the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever. (Psa 37:28-29)

“Gather My saints (My khaw·seed) together to Me, those who have cut a covenant with Me by slaughter.” (Psa 50:5)

Regardless of whether or not they live the whole of the 1000 years, what is important is that they will be renewed in their strength and there will be no week or feeble men among them; regardless of their present age and physical condition.

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting Elohim, Yehovah, the Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. … but those who wait on Yehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. (Isa 40:28-31)

The world will be in awe of these wholly righteous men who speak and act on behalf of Yehovah. Next time I will discuss how these shepherds will carry themselves during Israel’s three and one half years in the wilderness.

144,000 (5) – Not Defiled With Women

They sang, as it were, a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. (4) These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being first-fruits to God and to the Lamb. (Rev 14:3-4)

Oh, how I hate reading the New Testament (NT); and much more, trying to make sense of it. Because of it we have learned and believed many things, lies, that have no foundation in Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging words given through His servant Moses and His other Prophets.

Yehovah said through Isaiah,

To the Torah [Yehovah’s word given to Moses] and to the testimony [Yehovah’s words given to His other prophets]! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isa 8:20)

Revelation 14:4 is one of the main reasons I deleted my original video entitled “144,000 – virgin of Israel.” The NT would have you believe that Yehovah’s message to the world is all about this man who people call “the lamb;” but that man who Christians and Messianics worship is nothing more than a “golden calf” who was given to them by the Catholic Church to turn them away for doing what the Creator expects from men and their women.

The song which these faithful men will sing, “seems” like a new song; but it is really the song of Moses reminding Yehovah’s people NOT to follow any other lawmaker and judge but Him.

We saw in part 1 and in part 2 of this series, that “the virgin” has nothing to do with His servants’ sexual nature and EVERYTHING to do with who they serve and their 2nd / spiritual birth. Everything born of the flesh will return to the dust. but that which is born of the spirit will have life eternal.

So what does it mean to be “defiled with women?” Again, the minds of most people will turn to the flesh and assume that since “defiled with women” is used in the same sentence as the word “virgins” that it must have something to do with sex. AUGH!

I took two years of Koine Greek in college; I did not enjoy it then and I enjoy it even less now. If only I had spent my time learning ancient Hebrew. Why learn the language of the perverted commentaries when we can learn the language of the Creator? The word being translated in the verse above as “defiled” in the Greek is the word “moluno.”

G3435 μολύνω
moluno
To defile, besmear or soil as with mud or filth (1Co 8:7; Rev 3:4; Rev 14:4).
Syn.:
miaínō (G3392), to stain;
spilóō  (G4695), to spot, pollute;
phtheírō  (G5351), to corrupt.
Ant.:
katharízō (G2511), to cleanse. (WordStudy)

Moluno has nothing to do with sex and EVERYTHING to do with being soiled, corrupted and muddied. It is only used 2 other times in the NT,  neither of which has any sexual overtones. Here they are.

But not everyone knows this truth. Some people have been so used to idols that to this day when they eat such food they still think of it as food that belongs to an idol; their conscience is weak, and they feel they are defiled by the food. 1Co 8:7

Please don’t think you understand this verse without understanding Leviticus 17 and what Yehovah says about “Meat ‘sacrificed’ to ‘idols’.” The main point here is for us to understand that there are no sexual overtones here, their conscience is weak, and they “feel” they are “defiled by the food.”

The other place is Revelation 3:4.

You have a few names [men] even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. Rev 3:4

This, in fact, is the opposite (not moluno). What is the opposite in this case? “Walking with Yehovah in “white,” their garments are the garments of righteousness.

As Yehovah sanctifies His holy men, His called-out ones, so also a man sanctifies his woman (there is no word for wife in Torah) by the washing of the word.

Being defiled with women is the opposite of becoming a glorious nation without spot or wrinkle. Instead of the man sanctifying his woman by cleansing her by the washing of water with the word. His woman is defiling, besmearing, soiling or otherwise blackening her man by encouraging him to go a way he should not. She is encouraging her man to live according to his flesh, instead of his higher nature.

Sarai defiled Abram by suggesting that he take Hagar in order to produce a seed, instead of waiting for Yehovah’s promised seed; and he listened to her – AUGH!

Now Sarai, Abram’s woman, bare him no son: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, “Behold now, Yehovah hath restrained me from bearing; go in, I pray thee, unto my handmaid; it may be that I shall build by her.” And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. (Gen 16:1-2)

Notice Abram was not Abraham, and Sarai was not Sarah yet; they were both, as it were, still living in their flesh according to the lower nature.

Solomon too, in the end, was defiled with women.

And he had seven hundred woman, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his women turned away his heart. For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his women turned his heart after other elohim; and his heart was not loyal to Yehovah his Elohim, as was the heart of his father David. 1Ki 11:3-4

Now, speaking of David: Remember I said David is a shadow picture of the NT’s “144,000,” and the ones referred to as Israel, the male-child, the banners, the branch,  His servants, the good shepherds, the prophet like Moses and many other name in the Torah and in the Prophets.

defiled with womenDavid arrives with the ark of Yehovah

David has just brought the ark of Yehovah into His city. It is one of the best days of his life and he is coming home to “bless his family.” But his 1st woman, Michal, tried to defile him when he arrived home. She was angry because he danced uncovered before Yehovah and the maids of the land. Listen to the sarcasm drip from her lips as she speaks.

Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, “How glorious was the king of Israel today, uncovering himself today in the eyes of the maids of his servants, as one of the base fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!” (2Sa 6:20)

“What will the neighbors think?!”

David, however, is not going to be defiled by this woman, one of many in his household. Listen to his reply to her.

So David said to Michal, “It was before Yehovah [that I danced], who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of Yehovah, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before Yehovah. And I will be even more undignified than this, and I will be humble in my own sight. But as for the maidservants of whom you have spoken, by [even] them I will be held in honor.” Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child to the day of her death. (2Sa 6:21-23)

Perhaps Michal had no child because David never “went in” to her again? David was not going to be defiled with women, and especially not the daughter of Saul. David was not held in honor by the daughter of Saul, and I think it was because of a prideful and Jezebel spirit that caused her to forget her place before her master.

Is it possible that man is the head of his woman because a woman is more pragmatic and thus, more likely to be led according to her lower nature and is more prone to follow the broad paths of life? Could this be why a woman is created to be a “suitable aide” instead of a co-leader or, worse yet, a leader of the family? Could this be part of the reason why the kingdoms of the world are currently in such a mess?

As for My people, infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.” (Isa 3:12)

According to the state, a woman is an equal partner in all decisions. Is that what the Creator intended?

The answer is an emphatic “NO!A man’s sin is on him; as bone of a man’s bone and flesh of a man’s flesh, what a man’s woman does, he does; she is he! And since her sin is on him, he can not allow himself to be defiled with any of his women. This defiling is also what happened with “the man.” and his woman in Genesis 3.

I have one more thing that I would like to discuss pertaining to these  amazing and set-apart men of the last days. What does it mean to be “redeemed from the earth?” We will talk about that next time.

144,000 (3) – A Virgin Daughter of Babylon

This is part 3 of a series about Yehovah’s called-out and set-apart men (many call them the 144,000) of the last days who will lead many out of their Egypt, their Babylon. If you have not already done so, please read Part 1 – The virgin of Israel and Part 2 – The saints, His Kind first.

Israel, Yehovah’s seed and spiritually born men (eesh) were all once just the sons of Jacob. We were chosen and set apart by Him because of His relationship with their fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But we were an unfaithful people (harlots/adulterers) who left Yehovah and made covenants with and served the elohim (lawmakers and judges) of the nations which were all around us. First we served the Egyptians, then the Assyrians and finally the Babylonians.

harlot
This is harlot Israel!

You also committed harlotry with the Egyptians, your very fleshly neighbors, and increased your acts of harlotry to provoke Me to anger. … You also played the harlot with the Assyrians, because you were insatiable; indeed you played the harlot with them and still were not satisfied. Moreover you multiplied your acts of harlotry as far as the land of the trader, Chaldea [Babylon]; and even then you were not satisfied. “How degenerate is your heart!” says my master, Yehovah, “seeing you do all these things, the deeds of a brazen harlot. “You erected your shrine at the head of every road, and built your high place in every street [there is a “Church,” a place of false worship on practically every large street in America]. Yet you were not like a harlot, because you scorned payment. You are an adulterous woman, who takes strangers instead of her man [אישׁה, eesh]. (Eze 16:26-32)

Israel, Yehovah’s bride, His saints who made covenant with him by slaughter [we saw this in part 2] were to be His special treasure (His segulah), pure, spotless and untainted by the world.

Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant [we did it once at Passover, but we need to continue], then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests [Yehovah only has male priests] and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to Israel’s seed.” Exo 19:5-6

We were so unfaithful to Yehovah that He finally sent us away and cast us into all the nation of the world.

And I will judge you as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged; I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy. I will also give you into their hand, and they shall throw down your shrines and break down your high places. They shall also strip you of your clothes, take your beautiful jewelry, and leave you naked and bare. (Eze 16:38-39)

And this is the condition we have been in for about 2500 years. We have been in Babylon [Here is a great link to help you understand what Babylon is.] for so long that we do not  even know who we are supposed to be.

Virgin Daughter of Babylon“Come away from her son, she is being disciplined!”

“Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans! For you shall no more be called tender and delicate. Take the millstones and grind meal [become their servants]. Remove your veil, take off the skirt, uncover the thigh [take off your garments of righteousness], pass through the rivers [the people who dwell on earth]. Your nakedness shall be uncovered, yes, your shame will be seen. I will take vengeance, and I will not arbitrate with a man [אדם, a·dam’, a man of the flesh].” (Isa 47:1-3)

We, I, men, have been in Babylon our entire life and are sarcastically, and legitimately, called a “virgin daughter of Babylon” and a “daughter of the Chaldeans” by Yehovah;” we have NEVER BEEN His and have always and faithfully served in Babylon.

A virgin daughter of Babylon is the antonym of the virgin of Israel; just as the sons of belial are to the righteous and upright men of Yehovah. The first has covenants with, and serves in, the kingdoms of the world; and the latter is in covenant with Yehovah and serves only Him.

Now, please compare the following verse with the one above, Isaiah 47:1-3.

Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments [the garments of righteousness], O Jerusalem, the holy city! For the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no longer come to you. Shake yourself from the dust, arise; sit down [on your throne], O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion [Zion, Jerusalem, and “the holy city” are all synonyms for Yehovah’s spiritually born men]! For thus says Yehovah, “You have sold yourselves for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money.” (Isa 52:1-3)

Awake! Awake! This is my message for you today and the same message of the Song of Songs!

You (men) can become one of the great ones in the future; part of the “male-child” and one of the el who will rule with Yehovah in the Millennial kingdom.

Even now Yehovah is raising up a people for Himself. They are all men who will leave the kingdom of their birth, join themselves to Yehovah and His other called-out men as a Ger; and then draw near at Passover and become His segulah, His special treasure, His Ezrach man. THIS IS THE BORN AGAIN EXPERIENCE and this is the “one new man.” This man, because of this spiritual birth, has now ALWAYS been Yehovah’s and therefore eligible to become His spouse. Yes, even Yehovah is a polygynist. 😉

“Then shall the virgin [בתולה, be·thu·lah] rejoice in the dance, young men [ובחרים, ba·chu·rim] and the old, together; for I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow. (Jer 31:13)

For as a young man [בחור, ba·chur’] marries [יבעל, ba’·al – masters] a virgin [בתולה, be·thu·lah], So Thou shall marry [יבעלוך, ba’·al – master ] Thy sons [בניך, possessive and plural form of ben]; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride , so shall thy Elohim rejoice over thee. (Isa 62:5)

The virgin of Israel, who was a virgin daughter of Babylon, is Yehovah’s Ezrach man and Yehovah’s future bride. Yeshua is NOT the groom, he is just one more bride to be. All the NT “bride of christ” nonsense is yet one more false image which we have adopted that simply has no foundation in Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging words given through Moses and His other prophets.

Right now Yehovah is raising up the old dry bones of many a daughter of Babylon (many a man) and drawing him near to Himself; and it is at Passover, the Time of Life, that He will breathe the breath of life into him. THIS is how a nation will be born in a single day. Everyone else will remain the walking dead of the earth.

But like so much of what I write, this is all about men; and I am sure there are many ladies asking, “What about us? Where do we fit into all this? Well, in part 4 I hope to answer those questions both to your satisfaction and in accordance with Yehovah’s word; at the very least, the latter. Surviving the coming last days is all about conforming our lives (both men and their women) to Yehovah’s created purpose for them. Noah’s woman (Na·a·mah’) made it alive through the flood because her man “walked with Yehovah.”
