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.

Pray for Jerusalem’s Peace

pray for jerusalemThere is only one place in the Tanach that says “pray for Jerusalem’s peace.” It does not say “pray for Israel’s peace,” is says “pray for Jerusalem’s peace.” It was written by King David and it can be found in  the Psalms.

Pray for Jerusalem’s peace; may those who love you prosper. May shalom be within your ramparts, prosperity in your palaces. (Psa 122:6-7)

We will see here that Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ is not a place, Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ is a people; those spiritually born men who lead all within their gates peacefully and have Yehovah dwelling in the midst.

In our Sabbath class today we only covered the first eighteen verses of Genesis 14. In this portion Abram’s nephew Lot (and all belonging to him) “the women” and “the people” are taken by 800,000 men led by 4 kings who came from Babylon; one of whom is Nimrod (a.k.a. Amraphel). When Abram, the Hebrew, hears what happened, he gathers “318 young men who were born in his household” and recovers Lot, his wives and all belonging to him.

But this portion REALLY gets interesting in verse 18. In my NKJV it reads like this.

Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. (Gen 14:18)

In reality mel·chi’-ze·dek’ [ומלכי צדק, pronounced mel·kee’-ze·deek’] is a compound word meaning “king of the righteous” or “righteous’ king.”

This is not a name of a man, it is a position of authority. The mel·chi’-ze·dek’ is the highest ranking member among Yehovah’s people (men) on the earth; he is the one who carries the rod of THE Elohim and who also possessed ha·a·dam’s (and his woman’s) garments.

The NKJV says “king of Salem”; but even that requires more understanding; the mel·chi’-ze·dek’ is the king of שׁלם (Sha·lem’).

H8004
שׁלם
Sha·lem’: A proper noun designating Sha·lem’, a city where Melchizedek was high priest and king. The name means “peace” and is an early reference to Jerusalem. Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek (Gen_14:18; cf. Heb_7:1-2), and he blessed Abraham. (WordStudy)

Ultimately, while I really like WordStudy, even it is written by men who have never left the kingdom of their birth and have become wholly Yehovah’s men, those who dwell in heaven. So it is hard for men of the flesh to gain spiritual understandings.

Sha·lem’ is another word for Ye·ru’-sha·lem’. It is only used twice in the Tanach.

Then Melchizedek, king of Sha·lem’, brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of El Most High. (Gen 14:18)

At this point “Jerusalem” did not even exist; it was called Jebus or Jevus; the home of the Jubusites.

In Sha·lem’ also is His tabernacle, and His dwelling place in Zion. (Psa 76:2)

We will see that Yehovah dwells in the midst of Ye·ru’-sha·lem’, those who “shall lead peacefully.

The Sha·lem’ are a people (men) at peace with Yehovah. The Sha·lem’ are the “contented ones” who have restored Yehovah’s image in their life, His ezrach men.

The mel·chi’-ze·dek’ is the one who taught Abram all that he knows about Yehovah. First it was Noah and now it is Shem; later the mel·chi’-ze·dek’ will be Abraham. And all those who will carry the rod of Elohim. So it was out of gratitude for the understandings which Abram received from Shem, that he gave a tithe of the booty which he took from the 800,000 men whom he killed.

Here is what Yasher says about this encounter between Abram and his “king”, or in this case, “master.”

Yasher 14:11 And a·do·ni’-ze·dek’ [righteous’ master] king of Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ [those who “shall lead peacefully], the same was Shem, went out with his men to meet Abram and his people, with bread and wine, and they remained together in the valley of Melech.
12 And a·do·ni’-ze·dek’ blessed Abram, and Abram gave him a tenth from all that he had brought from the spoil of his enemies, for a·do·ni’-ze·dek’ was a priest before Elohim.

The mel·chi’-ze·dek’ and the a·do·ni’-ze·dek’ are one in the same.

And the Sha·lem’ and Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ are also synonyms.

But where is the “city where the mel·chi’-ze·dek’ / a·do·ni’-ze·dek’ is priest and king?

This city is NOT a city made of brick and mortar, it is a holy, a spiritual city in which Yehovah dwells in the hearts of his spiritually born seed, Ye·ru’-sha·lem’, those who lead all within their gates peacefully.

Could Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ be the place where the “Resh” (those who lead their women, children, servants and their Ger peacefully in each of their gates) dwell?

Brown-Driver-Briggs defines Jerusalem as the “teaching of peace;” but could this word also be a compound word? Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ [ירו שׁלם]

The prefix י (yud) and the suffix ו (vav) form a verb conjugation which forms an imperfect, 3rd person, masculine, plural; a conjugation which says, “they shall …” the word (in this case the Hebrew picture) they modify is the ר (resh).

[Note: Here is a Hebrew verb conjugation chart that you must have in your files if you want to learn to decode Hebrew verbs.  Hebrew Verb Tenses]

Look what Jeff Benner says about the resh in his Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible.

The Ancient picture for this letter is resh, the head of a man. This letter has the meanings of head or man as well as chief, top, beginning or first. (AHLB)

I think “they shall lead peacefully” is better than “teaching of peace.” The kingdoms of this world rule by force and intimidation. But in Yehovah’s kingdom no one is forcing or tricking anyone into joining Him; all who join themselves (and their families) to Yehovah and His Ye·ru’-sha·lem’, must do so voluntarily.

BUT NOW, look what Joshua 10 says about another “a·do·ni’-ze·dek’.”

Now it came to pass when a·do·ni’-ze·dek‘ [אדני  צדק, righteous’ master], king of Jerusalem [ירו שׁלם] heard how Joshua had taken Ai and had utterly destroyed it—as he had done to Jericho and its king, so he had done to Ai and its king—and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were among them. (Jos 10:1)

This is the 1st time that the name “Jerusalem” is used in the Tanach, and the place most people think of today as His “holy city” does not yet exist.

This supposed a·do·ni’-ze·dek’ is 500+ years after Abram meets with the true a·do·ni’-ze·dek’, and the physical city of “Jerusalem” is still called Jebus.

The world thinks “Jerusalem” is Yehovah’s city, but they fail to understand who the real Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ (his Ezrach men who lead everyone in each of their gates peacefully) actually is.

Read Joshua 10 and you will see a false “master of the righteous”, the supposed “king of Jerusalem” come against Yehovah’s host, the men who are led by Joshua, as they claim Canaan for Yehovah’s kingdom. I will encourage you to read this whole chapter, as we did in our class, with eyes that see what I am teaching here.

All of this chapter is a shadow picture of what is going to happen in the last days also. Yehovah is even now raising up Ye·ru’-sha·lem’, His Ezrach men, all over the earth, who will battle with supposedly righteous men who have never dwelt with Yehovah in their midst.

Pray for Jerusalem’s peace

Now look at how Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ is often used in the scriptures.

Break forth into joy, sing together you waste places of Ye·ru’-sha·lem’! For Yehovah has comforted His people, He has redeemed Ye·ru’-sha·lem’. (Isa 52:9)

Ye·ru’-sha·lem’,” “Zi·on’,” “Israel,” “the holy city,” ” the Ezrach,” “Israel’s seed,” “His people,” and more, all refer to the same group of spiritually born men.

For they call themselves after the holy city, and lean on the Elohim of Israel; Yehovah of hosts is His name: (Isa 48:2)

And they shall call them the holy people, the redeemed of Yehovah; and you shall be called sought out, a city not forsaken. (Isa 62:12)

O Zi·on’, You who bring good tidings, get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings, lift up your voice with strength, lift it up, be not afraid; say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your Elohim!” (Isa 40:9)

Also the sons of those who afflicted you shall come bowing to you, and all those who despised you shall fall prostrate at the soles of your feet; and they shall call youThe City of Yehovah“, “Zi·on’ of the Holy One of Israel“. (Isa 60:14)

His foundation is in the holy mountains. Yehovah loves the gates of Zi·on’ More than all the dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God! Selah
“I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to those who know Me; Behold, O Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia: ‘This one was born there.’ ”
And of Zi·on’ it will be said, “This one, and that one, were born in her; And the Most High Himself shall establish her.” Yehovah will record, when He registers the peoples: “This one was born there.” (Psa 87:1-7)

Abraham waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is Elohim. (Heb 11:10)

Pray shalom [שׁלום, shalom] of Ye·ru’-sha·lem’ [“they shall lead peacefully“]: May they prosper who love you. (Psa 122:6)

May they prosper who love you.” And,as Yehovah told Abram,

I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Gen 12:3)

Pray for Jerusalem, those men (who shall lead the world when Yehovah brings back Zion) to have shalom!

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.

The Man Fell And A New Kind Was Created – Belial’s Seed

the man, fall of the man, ha adam, seed of belial, belials seed sons of belial, belial, Genesis 3, Genesis 4The man [האדם, ha·a·dam) was created from the dust of the earth and it was Yehovah Himself who breathed the breath of “life” into the man.

And Yehovah Elohim [THE lawmaker and judge] formed the man [ha·a·dam] of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils a breath of life [חיים, cha·yim]. And the man became a living soul. (Gen 2:7)

The word used for “life” here is in its plural form, and understanding the Hebrew plural is very important. Yehovah was not breathing the breath of “lives” into the man [ha·a·dam ], He was breathing the “big life,” the qualitative LIFE. This “LIFE” was after His own image; The man [ha·a·dam] was created to be an immortal being with Yehovah’s glory, and His honor and His immortality in him. The Psalmist sees this also.

What is a man [אנושׁ, enosh – mortal man] that You are mindful of him. And a son [ובן, ben] of man [אדם, adam] that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than Elohim [מאלהים, Elohim]. And You have crowned him with glory and honor. (Psa 8:4-5)

The Man [Ha·a·dam] had access to the tree of “LIFE” [חיים, cha·yim]; and yes, that is that same plural word used above in the creation of [the man] ha·a·dam. But the man [ha·a·dam] failed to walk according to Yehovah’s created purpose and took it upon himself to defy Yehovah’s life-giving instructions.

Behold the man [ha·a·dam] is become as first from his kind [ממנו, min] to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of LIFE, and eat, and live forever”—therefore Yehovah Elohim sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. Gen 3:22-23

The man [ha·a·dam], by choosing to disobey Yehovah His lawmaker and judge, created a new “kind” on the earth; but this kind had no glory or honor or immortality. Instead of being a seed of Yehovah and dwelling in His created image, the man [ha·a·dam] has now become a seed of Belial, one of Satan’s very fragile and temporal seeds. Of course, Yehovah did say,

… but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Gen 2:17)

The man [ha·a·dam] died a spiritual death the day that he ate from that forbidden tree and without a remedy for that situation he would be no more than a walking dead man, having less standing before Yehovah than a pig; ha, at least all the pigs of this world are doing what they were created to do.

And that is the condition that all men are in today. Look what it says in Genesis 5.

And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, in his image, and named him Seth. (Gen 5:3)

Every man born since the fall of the man [ha·a·dam] is nothing more than the walking dead of the earth, the seed of belial. I think this is why Yeshua said “let the dead bury the dead.”

But, as I said, there is a remedy to every man’s fallen condition; and that remedy is to be born a 2nd time as a firstborn son/seed of Yehovah and become Israel’s seed. Yehovah’s message to Pharaoh through Moses was this:

Then thou shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “My son, My firstborn, is Israel. So I say to thee, let My son go that he may serve Me. (Exo 4:22-23)

We, Israel, were not released from Egypt until we had left our old elohim (the lawmakers and judges of Egypt) and then at Passover drew near and became Yehovah’s Ezrach seed or  Elohim Kind. This is the reason why I work so hard to help folks understand how a Gentile first becomes a Ger and then, at Passover, an Ezrach. Only His Ezrach man is the spiritually born seed who has the glory, honor and immortality restored in him. And only this man will find “LIFE,” cha·yim eternal. After the fall of the man [ha·a·dam] Yehovah said these words to Satan.

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed. He shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise his heel.” (Gen 3:15)

I think that people conveniently forget that Satan and women do not have physical seed. Satan is a spiritual being and the woman whom Yehovah is talking about is also a spiritual being, not a flesh one! Who is this woman who bears seed? Oh my – we are so lost in our doctrines and traditions of men. Here is Yehovah’s bride, the woman.

For as a young man [בחור, ba·chur] marries [יבעל, ba’·al] a virgin [בתולה, be·tu·lah], so Thou shall marry [יבעל, ba’al] Thy sons [בניך, benim]. And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall thy Elohim rejoice over thee. (Isa 62:5)

The spiritually born seed is the seed of the woman who is going to destroy all of Satan’s seed, the seed of belial, in the coming last days. Seed always produces after its own kind, and in the last days it is the spiritually born seed who births more spiritually born seed a.k.a “the male child.”

So much to learn – and so little time. These first three chapters are foundational to all future understanding concerning Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging word; and failure to understand them will pervert all future understandings and cause us to remain in the broad road and in our darkness.

Please, I know the first 3 chapters will require 8 hours of listening, but it will be life to those who will invest their time and energy to search out the truth for themselves. I can only point you in the right direction; the rest is up to you.

Here is part 2 of the fall of the man.

Fall of Man / Fall of Ha Adam

fall of man, Genesis 3I really wanted to make the title of this blog “the fall of the man” but for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) purposes I had to make it less precise and call it the fall of man. When most folks hear the words the fall of man they tend to think “the fall of man-kind, or perhaps, the fall of human-kind. Really, the fall of man-kind is not bad; if, it were understood as eesh-kind or male-kind, but it takes time to train our mind to think in those terms. This is a subtle distinction, but one that we must embrace if we want to understand the instructions which Yehovah gave through Moses.

After the fall of man, Yehovah came to the garden. Who was it that He called to? Did Yehovah ever talk to the woman before she had disobeyed her man? What did Yehovah tell her?

The first time the man, “the adam” is called “Adam” with no definite article “the” before it, was after the fall when Yehovah was pronouncing on him the consequence for listening to his woman and not obeying His Elohim.

Now man has become “like one of us” … – what is that about? There is no “us”!

And what is Yehovah saying when He tells the serpent that He will put enmity between his seed and the woman’s seed? Does a woman have seed? Does a snake have seed that we need to worry about? Perhaps this seed is spiritual seed, and we need some better understandings from the words which Yehovah spoke through His prophets. I am going to suggest a possible answer which will not agree with the doctrines and traditions of men that most “Christians” and “Messianics” want to believe.

Finally, who was it that was kicked out of the garden after the fall of man? You may be surprised to find out. Remember: As “bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh” – she, is he!

So much to learn, so little time; and this is just the third chapter.

I delight to do Your will, O my Elohim (my only lawmaker and judge), and Your Torah is within my heart.” (Psa 40:8)

The Land And The Seed

the land and the seed
The Seed begins to take the Land and it starts with a great shaking.

The Sabbath class I taught below concludes our 3 year process of going through Torah and the book of Yasher. We finished Deuteronomy last week, and Yasher and five chapters from Joshua this week. And, I was pleased to see in both that Yehovah fulfilled His word to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel; the promise concerning the land and the seed. Over and over He talked about the land and the seed, the land and the seed, the land and the seed.

And Yehovah appeared unto Abram, and said, unto thy seed will I give this land: and there he built an altar unto Yehovah, who appeared unto him. (Gen 12:7)

For all the land which thou see, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. (Gen 13:15)

In the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates. (Gen 15:18)

And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their Elohim. (Gen 17:8)

Yehovah, Elohim of heaven, which took me from my father’s house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that swore unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a woman unto my son from thence. (Gen 24:7)

Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore unto Abraham thy father. (Gen 26:3)

That you may prolong your days in the land which Yehovah swore to give your fathers, to them and their seed, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey.’ (Deu 11:9)

I really like this word seed. It was while we were going through Torah these past 3 years that I came to understand Israel as Yehovah’s spiritually born seed. Beni Israel is Israel’s seed, His Ezrach men who came into covenant with Him at Passover and who produce spiritual seed after His and their own kind.

We saw clearly this week that these spiritual men are the seed which inherits the land which Yehovah promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and to all His heir, His seed. Listen to the last word of Moses.

Then Israel shall dwell in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone [Jacob’s spiritual seed], in a land of grain and new wine; His heavens shall also drop dew. Happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by Yehovah, a shield of your help and a sword of your majesty! Your enemies shall submit to you, and you shall tread down their high places.” (Deu 33:28-29)

And the last chapter of Jasher said,

Yasher 91:15 And Yehovah gave to Israel’s seed the whole land of Canaan, as he had sworn to their ancestors, and Yehovah gave them rest from those around them, and Israel’s seed dwelt securely in their cities.
16 Blessed be Yehovah for ever, amen, and amen.

But all this is still the shadow picture of a much grander image. Yehovah told both ‘ha-adam’ and Noah to be fruitful and fill the earth; and Yehovah does not speak idle words. What He says is going to be done.

The earth is Yehovah’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. Psa 24:1

Right now Yehovah is raising up a people, His servants, men who have made covenant with Him by slaughter, His kind, who will inherit the earth, be fruitful and multiply in it. But first we will have to do what we did in Canaan.

Yasher 89:48 And he [Joshua] passed from them to all the cities of the kings which he had smitten, and he smote all the people who were left of them and he utterly destroyed them.
49 Only their booty and cattle the Israelites took to themselves as a prey, but every human being they smote, they suffered not a soul to live.
50 As Yehovah had commanded Moses, so did Joshua and all Israel; they failed not in anything.

Will you (men) leave the kingdom of your birth and join yourselves (and your family) to Yehovah’s people, True Israel? Or, will be part of the coming purge? Only the seed will inherit the land!
