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).

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.

Noah Cursed Canaan?

Part of the portion that we went through in our class this week was an “incident” between Noah and His youngest son, Ham.

And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard. Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. Then he said: “Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants he shall be to his brethren.” (Gen 9:20-25)

What?! Ham did something to his father and Noah cursed Canaan?

What do we know about Ham from Torah? Practically nothing. He does not seem any different from either of his two older brothers, Japheth and Shem.

But Yasher gives us some very interesting clues as to the temperament of Ham. I like that word Temperament. “The manner of thinking, behaving, or reacting characteristic of a specific person.”

Get this! Yasher does not even record the birth of Ham. His name is not even mentioned until after everyone comes out of the ark.  And here is the only thing Yasher tells us about the birth of Japheth and Shem, and their early years.

Yasher 5:16 And Noah was four hundred and ninety-eight years old, when he took Naamah for his woman.
17 And Naamah conceived and bare a son, and he called his name Japheth, and Noah said, Elohim (the law-maker and judge) has enlarged me in the earth; and she conceived again and bare a son, and he called his name Shem, and Noah said, Elohim has made me a remnant, to raise up seed in the midst of the earth.
18 And Noah was five hundred and two years old when Naamah bare Shem, and the boys grew up and went in the ways of Yehovah, in all that Methuselah and Noah their father taught them.

It appears to me that Ham did not sit at the feet of Methuselah and Noah, learning Yehovah’s ways. Was he a man of the flesh and not interested in spiritual things?

Noah did what he could to provide women of worth for his 3 sons.

Yasher 5:32 And thou shalt choose for thy sons three maidens, from ha-a-dam’s seed, and they shall be thy sons women.
35 Then Noah took the three daughters of Eliakim, son of Methuselah, as women for his sons, as Yehovah had commanded Noah.

The next time we learn something about Ham it is not sequential but it discusses something that happened just as Noah and his sons were leaving the ark. Ham is stealing something of great value, both historically and tangibly.

Jasher 7:23 And Cush the son of Ham, the son of Noah, took a woman in those days in his old age, and she bare a son, and they called his name Nimrod, saying, At that time ha-a-dam seed again began to rebel and transgress against Elohim. And the boy grew up, and his father loved him exceedingly, for he was the son of his old age.
24 And the garments of skin which Elohim made for Adam and his woman, when they went out of the garden, were given to Cush. [This was the big picture, now let’s find out how that happened.]
25 For after the death of Adam and his women, the garments were given to Enoch, the son of Jared, and when Enoch was taken up to Elohim, he gave them to Methuselah, his son.
26 And at the death of Methuselah, Noah took them and brought them to the ark, and they were with him until he went out of the ark.
27 And in their going out, Ham stole those garments from Noah his father, and he took them and hid them from his brothers.
28 And when Ham begat his first-born Cush, he gave him the garments in secret, and they were with Cush many days.
29 And Cush also concealed them from his sons and brothers, and when Cush had begotten Nimrod, he gave him those garments through his love for him, and Nimrod grew up, and when he was twenty years old he put on those garments.

Nimrod became “the profaned mighty one” on the earth when he put on those garments.

So even as Ham stole those garments from His Father, garments which were to be possessed by righteous men, Ham appears to be thinking ahead in anticipation of his seed becoming elohim in the earth. I wonder if Noah knew it was Ham who stole the garments from him? I think he did.

Now we come to the topic of this article. What did Ham do to his father? In the beginning of this section it says that Ham “saw the nakedness of his father.” So are we to believe that he saw his dad in the buff? Yeah, right! They were all together on the same boat for more than a year. Where in Torah does it say “you shall not see your father nude”? How about your mother, or any man or any woman? It is not there.

No, there is more to this story which only those with discerning eyes can see. The answer is found line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little. Seeing “the nakedness of one’s father or mother” usually means that a man has taken his mother or his father’s woman. It is a euphemism, a nice way of saying “don’t have sexual relations with a near of kin.”

The nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother you shall not uncover. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of your father’s woman you shall not uncover; it is your father’s nakedness. (Lev 18:7-8)

But Ham did not take his own mother or his father’s woman; which in this case is the same person, Naamah. No, it appears to me that Ham took his own father and humbled him while he was in a weakened state. Remember what Noah had understood after he awoke.

So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. (Gen 9:24)

Was this egregious sin the result of Ham being in an unofficial subservient position in his family due to his lack of interest in spiritual matters? Is it possible that his love of the world and his frustrations in his life finally manifested in the humbling of his father Noah, a wholly righteous man?

So now the question you should be asking is why does Torah say that “Noah cursed Canaan”? Canaan is the youngest of 4 brothers, why not curse Cush?

Ham’s seed were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. (Gen 10:6)

Noah said,

Then he said: “Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants He shall be to his brethren.” (Gen 9:25)

So is Canaan to serve Cush, Mizraim and Put, his brethren? Who did those men serve?

No, there is more to understand in this as well; and you will have to watch the video to get “the rest of the story.”

And for the rest of you pitiful individuals who want to use this story to support your racist beliefs, Yehovah is telling Ham and His seed, men of the flesh, to serve Yehovah’s spiritual men. And that is how it will end at the end of this world also; flesh men will serve spiritual men or perish from the earth once again.
