Abram Before Nimrod (Elohim and Images)

Nimrod (king of Babylon) and Terah (Abram’s father and captain of Nimrod’s host) were the first to put images (they called them “gods”) of wood and stone in their homes; and they taught all of ha·a·dam’s seed (men) to do the same.

Yasher 9:7 And the king and all his servants, and Terah with all his household were then the first of those that served gods of wood and stone.

See that? It says “gods” of wood and stone. Why would Nimrod, the king of the whole earth at this time, get men (I did say men) interested in serving “Gods” of wood and stone? I think it is a “bait and switch” by the main el (lawmaker and judge) of the land to keep men in the dark and confused as to whom they actually do serve; they all fear and serve King Nimrod. By distracting men with their images/idols, they keep men from serving only Yehovah. A man can not serve both Yehovah and Nimrod, and Nimrod knows that.

The very fact that these idols are being called “Gods” and not “images” is revealing.

One of the false images in the mind of many people is the distinction between what an “elohim” is
and what an “image” is; confusion over Yehovah’s 1st commandment and His 2nd. Many people think they are not serving other elohim because they think an elohim is an idol or image; when in fact, an elohim is the one (or ones) you fear and serve.

Most governments on the earth will give you freedom of “religion” as long as you keep serving them; and this too, is the “bait and switch”. Think about it. Do any of the religions of the earth tell a man to leave the kingdom of his birth and follow only the Creator of all things? Only Yehovah demands complete loyalty. Christianity will have you believe that you give “the LORD” service by obeying the “law of the land” and its elohim (lawmakers and judges). AUGH!

abram before nimrodThe first two imperatives which Yehovah spoke to each one of His called out men at Sinai, those who came into covenant with Him at Passover, was:

“I am Yehovah, thy Elohim, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shall have no other elohim existing before My face.” (Exo 20:2-3)

“Thou shall not make for thyself  images [not Elohim] or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above [the stars, the sun, the planets or the moon], or that is on the earth beneath [beneath the heavens], or that is in the water under the earth; thou shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, Yehovah, thy Elohim, am a jealous Elohim … (Exo 20:4-5)

Yehovah’s real people are men who serve only Him, spirit Elohim; an Elohim that nobody has ever seen. If a man bows down to, or worships, or serves any created thing (past or present), he will not be numbered among Yehovah’s people.

Can we create an image, or perhaps a false image in our mind, that replaces Yehovah? This is what Nimrod was doing and this is what all the kingdoms in the earth are doing right now. Nothing has changed!

Terah, a Shemite and the father of Abram was the head of Nimrod’s host for more than 50 years. When Abram came back to his house (after living in a cave for 10 years and in the home of Noah and Shem for 39 years) the first thing he saw was his father’s “Gods”, and he swore by Yehovah that in three days he would break all these images.

Yasher 11:17 And Abram said, As Yehovah liveth these images shall not remain in my father’s house; so shall Yehovah who created me do unto me if in three days’ time I do not break them all.

And when he did break them all, Terah was so angry that he told his Elohim (his lawmaker and judge), King Nimrod what had happened.

Yasher 11:51 And he said, I beseech thee my master [adoni], to hear me. Now fifty years back a child was born to me, and thus has he done to my gods and thus has he spoken; and now therefore, my master and king, send for him that he may come before thee, and judge him according to the law, that we may be delivered from his evil.

Abram before Nimrod

When Abram was brought before Nimrod he told him the same story that he told his father. “The large god broke all the others because he was jealous.”

Yasher 11:53 And the king said to Abram, What is this that thou hast done to thy father and to his gods? And Abram answered the king in the words that he spoke to his father, and he said, The large god that was with them in the house did to them what thou hast heard.

Listen to Nimrod’s very revealing response to Abram.

Yasher 11:54 And the king said to Abram, Had they power to speak and eat and do as thou hast said?

He knew the truth, and Abram calls him on his hypocrisy.

Yasher 11:54 … And Abram answered the king, saying, And if there be no power in them why dost thou serve them and cause ha·a·dam’s seed to err through thy follies?
55 Dost thou imagine that they can deliver thee or do anything small or great, that thou should serve them? And why wilt thou not sense the Elohim of the whole universe, who created thee and in whose power it is to kill and keep alive?
56 0 foolish, simple, and ignorant king, woe unto thee forever.

Well, those are real fighting words. Wait until you see what happens to Abram, as Nimrod and all His people find out who really does have the power of life and death. This lesson is very important for all men (and their woman) today who hope to live through the fire of the last days.

Yehovah is even now raising up Abram’s seed in the earth who will destroy all its Nimrodian kingdoms in the future.

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.
