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.

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.

144,000 (2) – The Saints, His Kind

“Yehovah is even now raising up a relatively small group of called-out men, his saints, to lead others through the coming tribulation. For the sake of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) I have often used the number “144,000” when referring to this group who, like Moses, will lead others out of their Egypt and into their promised land, the millennial kingdom. A friend suggested that I call them the “remnant” and I do like that term; Yehovah has always left a remnant of His people in the earth. But I recently came across a verse in Psalms where Yehovah Himself gives them a name.

[This article is continued from part 1 “144,000 – the virgin of Israel.]

The God of gods [El of elohim], Yehovah, has spoken and called to the earth from the rising of the sun to its going down. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, Elohim will shine forth. Our Elohim [our lawmaker and judge] shall come, and shall not keep silent. A fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous all around Him. He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that He may judge people. He says, “Gather to Me My saints [חסידי, khaw·seed’, literally, “My kind“], who cut [כרתי, kaw·rath’] a covenant [בריתי, ber·eeth’ – a cutting] with Me by slaughter [זבח, zah’·vach].” Let the heavens declare His righteousness, for Elohim Himself is Judge. Selah (Psa 50:1-6)

saints of GodThe saints, His Ezrach, are Elohim kind. The Elohim of the saints is called “spirit Elohim” in Genesis 1, and these saints have become His spiritually born seed after they entered into covenant with Him by cutting their lamb or goat at His Passover slaughter. This is what I talk about at length in “The Process of Becoming as One Born in the Land.”

Yehovah is coming soon to judge all people; and most will be found wanting. But first He is going to gather together His saints, His kind, to Himself in thousands of locations throughout the earth; these saints are going to war with Him.

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. (Joe 2:2-3)

Who are these people who come, great and strong? And what must a man do today to be numbered among this select group of men who are chosen by Yehovah to lead many men (with their families) into the millennial kingdom; just like Moses and then Joshua did when they brought us out of Egypt and into the land of Canaan?

“Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “that it shall no more be said, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. (Jer 16:14-15)

There are only two kinds of men in Yehovah’s kingdom, the Ger and the Ezrach. My teaching concerning how a “Gentile becomes a Ger” and then, how that “Ger becomes an Ezrach” reveals many characteristic traits that all these men have. Here are some of them in brief.

Because Israel was disobedient and went after the elohim (the lawmakers and judges) of other nations, they were kicked out of His land. A man (an eesh) can only serve one master, just as a woman is to serve only one man. We (men) have been scattered among the nations and have been serving their elohim for so long that we no longer know who we are. But Yehovah, even now, is beginning to draw men back to Himself.

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! For thus says Yehovah: “You have sold yourselves for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money.” (Isa 52:1-3)

I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead My case with you face to face. Just as I pleaded My case with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will plead My case with you,” says my master, Yehovah. “I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant [הברית, ha·ber·eeth’]. (Eze 20:34-37)

The future saints’ journey begins with repentance, a circumcision of the heart. He leaves the kingdom of his birth and joins himself to Yehovah and His other called-out people. He now serves only Yehovah because he has rid himself of all his covenants with the world and no longer has any obligation to his former elohim. He is now considered a Ger.

  • The future saints come from all nations
  • The future saints serve only Yehovah

But at Passover, the Ger enters into covenant [ברית, ber·eeth’] with Yehovah and becomes as one born in the land [Ezrach] by slaughter [זבח, zah’·vach]. A zah’·vach is always something that we kill, and then eat.

And when a stranger [ger] dwells with you and wants to keep the Passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall become as one born in the land [ezrach]. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. (Exo 12:48)

  • The saints are all men (those who must be circumcised)
  • The saints have experienced the 2nd birth and have become Yehovah’s spiritual seed
  • The saints are in covenant with only Yehovah

These future saints were created in the flesh on the day they were born, but formed into “Elohim kind” or “saints’ as the “new man,” the spiritual man, at Passover. It is at this time that Jacob (the man of the flesh) becomes Israel (the man of the spirit). When Yehovah speaks through Moses it is always Israel that He is speaking to.

But now, thus says Yehovah who created you, Jacob; and He who formed you, Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. (Isa 43:1)

Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “My son, My firstborn  [בכרך, bek·ore, always male], is Israel. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me.” (Exo 4:22)

His son, Israel, is the male-child found in Isaiah 7, 9, 66 and many other places.

This is the good news. A Gentile man can become Yehovah’s son! Speaking to His spiritual seed, Yehovah says,

Sons [בנים, benim] ye are to Yehovah, your Elohim … (Deu 14:1)

Oh, sooo beautiful!

  • The saints are redeemed from bondage, sin, and, in these last days it seems they will be redeemed from the earth (they won’t die) as well.

All those who dwell on earth shall die; but those who have learned to dwell in heaven, by serving spirit Elohim, shall live.

Like Noah, who provided all the seed for the generations of flesh men that Israel now lives among. These saints (and those who are covered by them) will arrive in the millennial kingdom alive, and it will be from their seed that this new world will be populated.

As I said in part 1 of this “144,000” series, I want to distance myself from the book of revelation and the NT as a whole because of all the perversions in it that do not agree with Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging word and ways given through Moses and His real prophets. And one of them in particular which I must address is about what it means to be a “virgin” who is “not defiled with women”.” Like Nicodemus, we so often try to understand things in the flesh that can only be understood in the spirit. And this why Yehovah calls His supposed people ” a virgin daughter of Babylon.”

We will talk about that next time also.

The Blessings And Curses

blessings and cursesDeuteronomy 28 is Moses’ review, at Mount Gerizim  and Mount Ebal, of the blessings and curses that Yehovah pronounced in Leviticus 26. Israel’s seed is blessed for following the statutes, judgements and ordinances of Yehovah, their Elohim (the lawmaker and judge) and cursed for following the statutes, judgements and ordinances of other lawmakers and judges.

This is not about Gentiles. Men either lay down their life in service to Yehovah, leave the kingdom of their birth and join themselves to Him and His other called-out people, or they are nothing more than walking dead. And women must learn to lay down their life in service to their man. Everyone must conform their life to Yehovah’s created purpose, or perish forever.

Levirate Marriage

Levirate MarriageThe instructions given to Yehovah’s Ezrach men concerning the “levirate marriage” is all about preserving  the name of thy brother, another man of Israel, by producing a seed/son for him. We take our brother’s woman to our self in order to produce a son to inherit our dead brother’s land, position and preserve his name in the earth.

“If brothers [אחים, ach] dwell together, and one of them dies and has no son, the widow of the dead man shall not come to a man [לאישׁ, eesh] outside [זר, zoor]; her husband’s brother [יבמה, yaw·vawm’] shall go to her and take [ולקחה, law·kach’] her to himself, and perform the duty of a husband’s brother to her [ויבמה׃, yaw·vawm’]. And it shall be that the firstborn son [הבכור, bek·ore’] which she bears will succeed to the name of his dead brother, that his name may not be blotted out of Israel. (Deu 25:5-6)

Because of Yehovah’s instructions concerning the levirate marriage a husband’s brother [יבמ, yaw·vawm’], through the same woman can produce a first-born son for his dead brother and one for himself as well. Wow!

In this context I discussed the story of Tamar and in the story of Naomi and Ruth, and we get to see Torah being lived out right before our eyes; as we see the near of kin, redeeming of the land which was previously sold, and the levirate marriage instructions in action. I also talked about the Hallmark movie called “Loving Leah.” There was much of it I did not like, but I am always such a sucker for a “chick flick.” 🙂

Other topics I discussed in this lesson were Divorce and Remarriage and A Man Shall Die For His Own Sin.
