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.

144,000 (5) – Not Defiled With Women

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. These were redeemed from among men, being first-fruits to God and to the Lamb. (Rev 14:3-4)

Oh, how I hate reading the New Testament (NT); and much more, trying to make sense of it. Because of it we have learned and believed many things, lies, that have no foundation in Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging words given through His servant Moses and His other Prophets.

Yehovah said through Isaiah,

To the Torah [Yehovah’s word given to Moses] and to the testimony [Yehovah’s words given to His other prophets]! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isa 8:20)

Revelation 14:4 is one of the main reasons I deleted my original video entitled “144,000 – virgin of Israel.” The NT would have you believe that Yehovah’s message to the world is all about this man who people call “the lamb;” but that man who Christians and Messianics worship is nothing more than a “golden calf” who was given to them by the Catholic Church to turn them away for doing what the Creator expects from men and their women.

The song which these faithful men will sing, “seems” like a new song; but it is really the song of Moses reminding Yehovah’s people NOT to follow any other lawmaker and judge but Him.

We saw in part 1 and in part 2 of this series, that “the virgin” has nothing to do with His servants’ sexual nature and EVERYTHING to do with who they serve and their 2nd / spiritual birth. Everything born of the flesh will return to the dust. but that which is born of the spirit will have life eternal.

So what does it mean to be “defiled with women?” Again, the minds of most people will turn to the flesh and assume that since “defiled with women” is used in the same sentence as the word “virgins” that it must have something to do with sex. AUGH!

I took two years of Koine Greek in college; I did not enjoy it then and I enjoy it even less now. If only I had spent my time learning ancient Hebrew. Why learn the language of the perverted commentaries when we can learn the language of the Creator? The word being translated in the verse above as “defiled” in the Greek is the word “moluno.”

G3435 μολύνω
moluno
To defile, besmear or soil as with mud or filth (1Co 8:7; Rev 3:4; Rev 14:4).
Syn.:
miaínō (G3392), to stain;
spilóō  (G4695), to spot, pollute;
phtheírō  (G5351), to corrupt.
Ant.:
katharízō (G2511), to cleanse. (WordStudy)

Moluno has nothing to do with sex and EVERYTHING to do with being soiled, corrupted and muddied. It is only used 2 other times in the NT,  neither of which has any sexual overtones. Here they are.

But not everyone knows this truth. Some people have been so used to idols that to this day when they eat such food they still think of it as food that belongs to an idol; their conscience is weak, and they feel they are defiled by the food. 1Co 8:7

Please don’t think you understand this verse without understanding Leviticus 17 and what Yehovah says about “Meat ‘sacrificed’ to ‘idols’.” The main point here is for us to understand that there are no sexual overtones here, their conscience is weak, and they “feel” they are “defiled by the food.”

The other place is Revelation 3:4.

You have a few names [men] even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. Rev 3:4

This, in fact, is the opposite (not moluno). What is the opposite in this case? “Walking with Yehovah in “white,” their garments are the garments of righteousness.

As Yehovah sanctifies His holy men, His called-out ones, so also a man sanctifies his woman (there is no word for wife in Torah) by the washing of the word.

Being defiled with women is the opposite of becoming a glorious nation without spot or wrinkle. Instead of the man sanctifying his woman by cleansing her by the washing of water with the word. His woman is defiling, besmearing, soiling or otherwise blackening her man by encouraging him to go a way he should not. She is encouraging her man to live according to his flesh, instead of his higher nature.

Sarai defiled Abram by suggesting that he take Hagar in order to produce a seed, instead of waiting for Yehovah’s promised seed; and he listened to her – AUGH!

Now Sarai, Abram’s woman, bare him no son: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. And Sarai said unto Abram, “Behold now, Yehovah hath restrained me from bearing; go in, I pray thee, unto my handmaid; it may be that I shall build by her.” And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. (Gen 16:1-2)

Notice Abram was not Abraham, and Sarai was not Sarah yet; they were both, as it were, still living in their flesh according to the lower nature.

Solomon too, in the end, was defiled with women.

And he had seven hundred woman, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his women turned away his heart. For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his women turned his heart after other elohim; and his heart was not loyal to Yehovah his Elohim, as was the heart of his father David. 1Ki 11:3-4

Now, speaking of David: Remember I said David is a shadow picture of the NT’s “144,000,” and the ones referred to as Israel, the male-child, the banners, the branch,  His servants, the good shepherds, the prophet like Moses and many other name in the Torah and in the Prophets.

defiled with womenDavid arrives with the ark of Yehovah

David has just brought the ark of Yehovah into His city. It is one of the best days of his life and he is coming home to “bless his family.” But his 1st woman, Michal, tried to defile him when he arrived home. She was angry because he danced uncovered before Yehovah and the maids of the land. Listen to the sarcasm drip from her lips as she speaks.

Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, “How glorious was the king of Israel today, uncovering himself today in the eyes of the maids of his servants, as one of the base fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!” (2Sa 6:20)

“What will the neighbors think?!”

David, however, is not going to be defiled by this woman, one of many in his household. Listen to his reply to her.

So David said to Michal, “It was before Yehovah [that I danced], who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of Yehovah, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before Yehovah. And I will be even more undignified than this, and I will be humble in my own sight. But as for the maidservants of whom you have spoken, by [even] them I will be held in honor.” Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child to the day of her death. (2Sa 6:21-23)

Perhaps Michal had no child because David never “went in” to her again? David was not going to be defiled with women, and especially not the daughter of Saul. David was not held in honor by the daughter of Saul, and I think it was because of a prideful and Jezebel spirit that caused her to forget her place before her master.

Is it possible that man is the head of his woman because a woman is more pragmatic and thus, more likely to be led according to her lower nature and is more prone to follow the broad paths of life? Could this be why a woman is created to be a “suitable aide” instead of a co-leader or, worse yet, a leader of the family? Could this be part of the reason why the kingdoms of the world are currently in such a mess?

As for My people, infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.” (Isa 3:12)

According to the state, a woman is an equal partner in all decisions. Is that what the Creator intended?

The answer is an emphatic “NO!A man’s sin is on him; as bone of a man’s bone and flesh of a man’s flesh, what a man’s woman does, he does; she is he! And since her sin is on him, he can not allow himself to be defiled with any of his women. This defiling is also what happened with “the man.” and his woman in Genesis 3.

I have one more thing that I would like to discuss pertaining to these  amazing and set-apart men of the last days. What does it mean to be “redeemed from the earth?” We will talk about that next time.
