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 (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.”

A Prophet Like Moses

A prophet like MosesTwice in Deuteronomy we read that a prophet like Moses would be born.

“Yehovah, thy Elohim [thy lawmaker and judge], will raise up for thee a Prophet like me (a prophet like Moses) from thy midst, from thy brethren. Him you shall hear, according to all thou desired of Yehovah, thy Elohim, in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of Yehovah, my Elohim, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’
“And Yehovah said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you (a prophet like Moses) from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him. (Deu 18:15-19)

Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; so Israel’s seed heeded him, and did as Yehovah had commanded Moses. But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom Yehovah knew face to face. (Deu 34:9-10)

This prophet speaks Yehovah’s words in Yehovah’s name; no other words or names!

How else is this prophet like Moses?

Moses was born for a specific purpose. Just before he was born, Moses’ sister Miriam prophesied saying, a male-child would be born who would save Israel (not the Egyptians) from the hands of Egypt.

Yasher 68:1 And it was at that time the spirit of Elohim was upon Miriam the daughter of Amram the sister of Aaron, and she went forth and prophesied about the house, saying, Behold a male-child will be born unto us from my father and mother this time, and he will save Israel from the hands of Egypt.

And Israel was saved by the the mighty arm of Yehovah working through Moses. As I see it this “prophet” is the “seed of the woman” who was spoken of in the garden just before Adam (and his woman followed him) was kicked out of the garden by Yehovah.

And I will put enmity between you [Satan] and the woman [Yehovah’s spiritually born men], and between your seed [those who live their lives in the flesh] and her seed [the seed of spiritually born men]; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” (Gen 3:15)

Oh – we get so confused when we think in the flesh and ignore the things of the spirit. A woman has no seed! But the spiritual man is born of flesh AND spirit. This is the difference between those who dwell on the earth and those who dwell in heaven.

The Israel who was delivered from Egypt were the spiritually born men who were not allowed to leave until right after the Passover in which they became Ezrach, spiritually born, 2nd born men.

Ecclesiastes says,

That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new?” It has already been in ancient times before us. (Ecc 1:9-10)

Just like the male-child delivered Israel out of Egypt the first time, Continue reading A Prophet Like Moses

Dry Bones of Ephraim Filled The Valley

Ephraim's dry bonesThis story found in Yasher about Ephraim’s dry bones is the same story which is referred to in 1 Chronicles.

Moses left Egypt when he was 18, served Kikianus (the king of Cush) for 9 years and then at the king’s death he, at 27, became the king of Cush. I talked about this last time in Moses’ timeline and Life from 3 – 27.

In this portion of the book of Yasher Moses is now 67 and we find that from the time Moses leaves Egypt until the time he arrives at Reuel’s, or Jethro’s, house and helps Zipporah and her sisters at the well that 49 years have gone by.

Yasher 76:12 So Moses went forth from the land of Cush, and headed home [Egypt] and ceased to reign over Cush, and Moses was sixty-six years old when he went out of the land of Cush, for the thing was from Yehovah, for the period had arrived which he had appointed in the days of old, to bring forth Israel from the affliction of the Ham’s seed.
13 So Moses went to Midian, for he was afraid to return to Egypt on account of Pharaoh, and he went and sat at a well of water in Midian.
14 And the seven daughters of Reuel the Midianite went out to feed their father’s flock.

Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters. And they came and drew water, and they filled the troughs to water their father’s flock. Then the shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock. (Exo 2:16-17)

But Moses still did not marry Zipporah for another 10 years.

Yasher 76:22 And when Reuel had heard the words of Moses, Reuel said within himself, I will put this man into the prison house, whereby I shall conciliate Cush’s seed, for he has fled from them.
23 And they took and put him into the prison house, and Moses was in prison ten years, and whilst Moses was in the prison house, Zipporah the daughter of Reuel took pity over him, and supported him with bread and water all the time.

There is so much that I would like to relate to you from this section, but space is limited here.

Ephraim’s Dry Bones Filled The Valley

But in the 180th year of Israel going down to Egypt we find a very interesting story.

Yasher 75:1 At that time, in the 180th year of the Israelites going down into Egypt, there went forth from Egypt valiant men, thirty thousand on foot, from Israel’s seed, who were all of the tribe of Joseph, of Ephraim’s seed, the son of Joseph.
2 For they said the period was completed which Yehovah had appointed to Israel’s seed in the times of old, which he had spoken to Abraham.

Here is what Yehovah told Abram when he was 75 years old.

Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. (Gen 15:13-14)

Well, this 400 years and how long we were actually in Egypt are intimately related. If you ask just about any person who “thinks” they know the scriptures, they will tell you that Israel was in Egypt for 430 years.

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)

They would be wrong! We were in Egypt for only 210 years. True understanding and wisdom does not come from knowing a single verse; it comes precept upon precept and line upon line, here a little and there a little.

“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)

The timeline below took me years to figure out; and it was not until I discovered Yasher that I was able to complete it.

    0   Abram receives the prophecy.  “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. 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.  (Jasher 13:17-18)

+   5  Abram departs from Haran a second time when he is 75 years old – “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  “Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.” (Gen_21:5 )

+ 60  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 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 And at the end of two hundred and ten years, Yehovah brought forth Israel’s seed from Egypt with a strong hand. 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. (Jasher 81:4-5)

This means that Abram received this prophecy on the 15th day of the first month; Passover day!

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 means that when Ephraim left Egypt saying that “the time was fulfilled,” that it really was! They were acting on the words of the prophecy, but doing it in their on flesh. I think that this is exactly what Judah did in going to Israel in their flesh, as it were, before it was time. Israel the STATE is going down before Yehovah raises up His called-out men; just like the Ephraimites were destroyed in this portion.

Yasher 75:6 And they directed their course toward the land of Gath, and they went down and found the shepherds of Gath feeding the cattle of Gath’s seed.
7 And they said to the shepherds, Give us some of the sheep for pay, that we may eat, for we are hungry, for we have eaten no bread this day.
8 And the shepherds said, Are they our sheep or cattle that we should give them to you even for pay? So Ephraim’s seed approached to take them by force.

Yasher 75:10 And when Gath’s seed saw the evil doings of Ephraim’s seed, they returned and assembled the men of Gath, and they put on each man his armor, and came forth to Ephraim’s seed for battle.

Yasher 75:16 And they smote all Ephraim’s seed, all who had gone forth from Egypt, none were remaining but ten men who had run away from the engagement.
17 For this evil was from Yehovah against Ephraim’s seed, for they transgressed the word of Yehovah in going forth from Egypt, before the period had arrived which Yehovah in the days of old had appointed to Israel.

Yasher 75:19 And the slain of Ephraim’s seed remained forsaken in the valley of Gath for many days and years, and were not brought to burial, and their dry bones filled the valley.

Many will think that this is just a story and that it really did not happen, but listen to how it concludes.

Yasher 75:21 And their father Ephraim [now 185 years old] mourned over them for many days, and his brethren came to console him.
22 And he came unto his wife and she bare a son, and he called his name Beriah, for she was unfortunate in his house.

Now look at this.

The men of Gath who were born in that land killed them because they came down to take away their cattle. Then Ephraim, their father, mourned many days, and his brethren came to comfort him. And when he went in to his wife, she conceived and bore a son; and he called his name Beriah, because tragedy had come upon his house. (1Ch 7:21-23)

AMAZING! So much to learn, so little time. Below is an audio to the whole of these 3 stories and much more.

My old dry bones were very dry, and I too was forsaken in the valley of death. But Yehovah brought me out from the kingdom of my birth, placed me in His kingdom and then 8 years ago breathed life into me at the Time of Life, Passover! And He is right now preparing me and and many thousands of other men to lead His people through the coming last days.
