Hebrews Part One
2 of 2
Psalms 58:1 “(To the chief Musician, Al-taschith. Michtam of David.”) Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? Do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?”
Al-taschith (Strong’s 516) Thou must not destroy; (from Strong’s 408) nothing (worth), rather than and (from Strong’s 7843) to decay, I.e. ruin; cast off, corrupt, destroy, lose, mar, perish, spill, spoiler, utterly, waste.
Michtam (Strong’s 4387) an engraving, I.e. a poem, Michtam; (from Strong’s 3799) to carve or engrave, I.e. to inscribe indelibly, or unable to remove or wash off; mark.
This Psalms, it’s a shame in the newer prints of even the KJV or King James Version do not include the information in the beginning of the Psalms, giving us more insight as to the meaning. Remember those “scribes”, the Kenites, Satan has working night and day, his children, they are the ones responsible for this. Know this, and the fact you have to go back to the original languages to check me out, or any teacher, as we each are held responsible for what we do in the flesh. Not what our church or our religion teaches us to believe. The title means “Thou must not destroy, or blot out” or Al-taschith, the meaning of it in Hebrew. The word Michtam means an engraving or a mark that one cannot erase or wash off. Remember like the mark, or the seal that God has put on His election minds:
Revelation 9:4 “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.”
This is commanded to Satan and his fallen angel army of Revelation 12:7-9 that come with him to this earth in our near future. Not to touch one person that has this seal, or this mark that nobody can erase. Not a physical, but rather a spiritual, or even an eternal mark for God has already judged His election, they already withstood Satan in the first earth age, and God is using them now to warn and teach the people His Word so they the others don’t do it again! Then back to:
Psalms 58:2 “Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; Ye weigh the violence of our hands in the earth.”
Psalms 58:3 “The wicked are estranged from the womb; They go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.”
Psalms 58:4 “Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: They are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;”
Psalms 58:5 “Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, Charming never so wisely.”
Psalms 58:6 “Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: Break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.”
Psalms 58:7 “Let them melt away as waters which run continually; When he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.”
Psalms 58:8 “As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away; Like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.”
God then opening with you people are judged others and think because you are so called “Christians” you are better judgers than Almighty God Who is Judge? Then God is saying that action is wicked, more wicked than the ones you are judging! The wicked, here the sons of Cain, these so called “Christians” they mix in looking like even “Jews” or of Judah, but in reality are of the synagogue of Satan. At the moment of their birth, lies come out of their mouths. Their poison is as the devil who is the serpent as in Revelation 12:7 and 20:2. They are like deaf snakes even, that a snake charmer couldn’t charm. Again the Lord using snakes, as the old serpent in the garden of Eden, Satan, just another title used by God’s Word to describe as a vicious snake watches and waits, very patiently for its victim, then it strikes when the victim is hypnotized by its fear and it strikes then. No mercy the snake has for its prey. That’s how Satan works, especially on God’s election, those that are teaching God’s Word, trying to warn the people. Be aware of it, not to live in fear, but live in light and truth, keeping that cover of the Word of God locked and loaded in your forehead, or your mind, so Satan does not deceive you. Then God saying as a snail melts in the hot sun, or a stillborn child that never sees the sun, as some more symbolism here. God is the Sun of Righteousness as in Malachi 4:
Malachi 4:1 “For, behold the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”
Malachi 4:2 “But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”
Malachi 4:3 “And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.”
Sun (Strong’s 8121) to be brilliant; the sun; by implication the east; figurative a ray, i.e. (architectural) a notched battlement: east side, sun (rising), window.
wings (Strong’s 3671) an edge or an extremity; specifically (of a bird or army) a wing, (of a garment or bed-clothing) a flap, (of the earth) a quarter, (of a building) a pinnacle; (from Strong’s 3670) to project laterally, i.e. probably (reflexive to withdraw, be removed.
The subject here is the Lord’s Day again. We see the time change, the flesh age melts like an oven, and anyone not standing on that Rock Who is Christ, His Word. The Lord’s Name is Sun of righteousness, and His wings, meaning His army. Remember Lord of hosts, that is Who the Lord is! We are at war here, a spiritual war both in heaven and in earth, as that’s why we need all of God’s gospel armor of Ephesians 6:11-20. The prophesies as in Revelation Chapter 11 we have in suns, or days, for God, and then in moons, or months, for Satan. We are children of the day, not of the moon, as even one major world religion uses their calendar to plan their religious events. Then going back here:
Psalms 58:9 “Before your pots can feel the thorns, He shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.”
Psalms 58:10 “The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.”
Psalms 58:11 “So that a man shall say, “Verily there is a reward for the righteous: Verily He is a God That judgeth in the earth.”
Then God saying your pots, or your protective covers, that can’t even stop the wrath of the LORD God Jehovah when Jesus will pour out God’s wrath can you imagine when HE looks down at this earth and the majority of His people are worshipping His enemy, Satan, in the flesh? It makes me sick just thinking of this! Then we cannot even begin to imagine how dear God will feel when HE sees this, the people bringing this plague on their own backs of the Lord’s wrath. Then some die before His return, and then we know if you are living in a flesh body as in I Corinthians Chapter 15, all flesh changes instantly as we cannot get into the other dimension, or heaven, with a flesh body, a liable to die body, but many with liable to perish souls will get there to be judged along with the righteous people, as we all go to God’s throne for His decision. Not ours, or our church’s decision, but God’s alone! That’s why remember in Psalms 110:1 the LORD says that until we, the election who believe the Word of God and do it as best as we can in the flesh, we will make His enemies His footstool by teaching against Satan, telling them that he will come first, the Lord secondly, and then we all will rejoice and be very happy to see the Lord’s vengeance, as HE is fair with every person! He knows all of our thoughts, and has record of all of our actions. If you have sinned, repent and sin no more. That sin is then erased out of existence, like it never happened, giving you the opportunity to make good with your life, doing your best. Don’t worry, we will all continue to sin, but this does not give one license to sin, just don’t be hung up on past sin, as that shows that His blood did not cover your errors, God forbid, no way Jose! Now then is payment day coming, and that is judgment for the righteous, or those that do the law and the prophets, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, or the Old Testament and the New Testament as here:
Revelation 12:16 “And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.”
Revelation 12:17 “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
earth (Strong’s 1093 soil, a region, , land, ground.
The woman here representing mother Israel, and today that means whomsoever believes in the Word of God Who is Jesus Christ as in John 3:16. The earth, meaning as in Acts 2 which is quoting from Joel Chapter 2, the sons and daughters who are prophesying, meaning they are teaching the Word of God. When you teach God’s Word lots of prophesy happen, and in this final generation of the fig tree, before our very eyes, with all the changes in the world today. Take a look around you and open up your eyes. Like we know the major sign in the stars, the earth at the exact center of its natural rotational path of the galaxy in which we reside. This galactic alignment, not planet alignment, happens every 5,125 years. Just another sign, another one not so major this record high record heat wave across the East and then the Midwest, with now dear God relieving those poor people with rain. Then here a record heat in Las Vegas NV hitting over the 110 F mark. Just as Jesus told us all these things in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21, all natural occurrences as remember God is in control, even of the weather, that we can look to His Word for understanding. When more of these incidents happen, the closer we get to the end of this world age, or the labor pains of the birth of a new age. Moving along here back to Hebrews 1:
Hebrews 1:9 “Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore, God, even Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows.”
God loves when we do what’s right. They rejoice in heaven, can you imagine, when someone first becomes a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and accepts Him in their heart. That is a very special day, isn’t it for each one of us, imagine our past relatives and friends, even who see that in heaven with God! So be happy down here on earth, for we need to keep strong in His Word, with many of our people so lost out there in religion or what their church tells them to believe. So then HE, Jesus, remember Melchizedek, the King of Righteousness, the Righteous One. That our little actions, are like filthy rags compared to His righteousness:
Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”
We are then with the blood of Jesus covering up our sins, even what’s left, that righteousness is nothing compared to the mercy and the respect and the love that Almighty God deserves with His right hand, our Saviour Jesus Christ, that throne that we are worshipping! As here:
Psalms 45:6 “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: The sceptre of Thy kingdom is a right sceptre.”
Psalms 45:7 “Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: Therefore God, Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows.”
God’s throne is eternal. Satan may have the five month period of Revelation 9:5 here on this flesh earth, which Satan comes at Revelation 8:1 during the middle of that period. But no! God is eternal, even when Satan is here, always in control in Joel 2:25, God, Himself, calls them My great army, or the locust army of Revelation 9, the fallen angels that come with Satan already judged to perish in Jude :6, not by name, as Satan is the only son of perdition, or to be fully destroyed out of all memory and existence in Revelation 20:10. The son of perdition in II Thessalonians 2:3-4, some mist each as some person other than Satan has not read God’s Word with understanding and end up worshipping him for they have not read God’s Word with understanding and eyes to see and ears to hear His Word. Then moving along:
Hebrews 1:10 “And, “Thou, LORD, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands:”
Hebrews 1:11 “They shall perish; but Thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;”
Hebrews 1:12 “And as a vesture shalt Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail.”
We just read it in Genesis 1:2, we are talking about the ages here. Not the actual world itself, that was created in Genesis 1:2. The age alone will perish, all flesh will melt off remember we read in II Peter 3:8-10. The people that worship Satan will be plagued by this bringing this curse on themselves, freaking off when it happens seeing their flesh melt before their eyes, then seeing the real Jesus Christ standing right in front of them! And as in I Corinthians:
I Corinthians 15:40 “There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.”
I Corinthians 15:50 “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”
I Corinthians 15:51 “Behold, I shew a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,”
I Corinthians 15:52 “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
I Corinthians 15:53 “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
I Corinthians 15:54 “So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
I Corinthians 15:55 “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
I Corinthians 15:56 “The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.“
I Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God, Which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
I Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is, not in vain in the Lord.”
firstfruits (Strong’s 536) a beginning of sacrifice, i.e. the (Jewish) first-fruit; (from Strong’s 575) off, away, separation, departure, cessation, completion, reversal, and (from Strong’s 756) (through implication of precedence) to commence (in order of time) to commence (in order of time) (rehearse from) the beginning; (middle of Strong’s 757) to be first (in political rank or power); chief (ruler), magistrate, prince, ruler.
terrestrial (Strong’s 1919) worldly; earthly, in earth.
celestial (Strong’s 2032) above the sky, celestial, heavenly.
We all have a celestial body, a spiritual body or even angelic body, as well as a flesh body, or a terrestrial body. We put the angelic body when Jesus returns, then all souls. Even those with mortal, or liable to die souls they, too, put on angelic bodies, for then all of us to go to God’s throne for judgment. Then it’s up to Him for His placement. Not whether you belong to some church that say you are “saved”, no way! But God, Himself, sits as Judge, with Jesus in charge. That is the mystery that many will not be forewarned about because they have not read God’s Word with understanding, nor have they been taught. The election are those then that were chosen ahead of time, before this flesh age happened here:
Ephesians 1:4 “According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: “
Ephesians 1:5 “Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,”
Ephesians 1:6 “To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved: ”
Ephesians 1:7 “Wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;”
Ephesians 1:8 “Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which he hath purposed in Himself;”
foundation (Strong’s 2602) a deposition i.e. founding; figuratively conception, conceive, foundation; (from Strong’s 2598) to thrown down, lay down; (from Strong’s 2596) opposition, distribution or intensity, and (from Strong’s 906) to throw (more or less violent or intense); arise, cast out, lay, lie, pour, send, strike, throw down, thrust.
predestinated (Strong’s 4309) to limit in advance, predetermine, (from Strong’s 4253) fore, in front of, prior, and (from Strong’s 3724) to mark out or bound (horizon), i.e. to appoint, decree, specify, declare, determine, limit or ordain.
God, Himself, hand selected each soul to do his or her job, according to previous actions in the first earth age according to His will. God does not play favorites, for like in Jeremiah 1:5 how could God know what Jeremiah would do here on earth, that is to say be a dedicated servant to God, a prophet, or teacher of His Word? It’s because Jeremiah withstood with the many of God’s army, His election, that withstood Satan in the first earth age. That’s how! That’s what being said here, before the foundation of this world age. Then here:
Psalms 102:1 “(A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the LORD.) Hear my prayer, O LORD, And let my cry come unto Thee.”
Psalms 102:2 “Hide not Thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; Incline Thine ear unto me: In the day when I call answer me speedily.”
Psalms 102:24 “I said, “O my GOD, take me not away in the midst of my days:” Thy years are throughout all generations.”
Psalms 102:25 “Of old hast Thou laid the foundation of the earth: And the heavens are the work of Thy hands.”
Psalms 102:26 “They shall perish, but Thou shalt endure: Yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; As a vesture shalt Thou change them, and they shall be changed:”
Psalms 102:27 “But Thou art the same, And thy years shall have no end.”
Psalms 102:28 “The children of Thy servants shall continue, And their seed shall be established before Thee.”
Hebrews is being quoted. This prayer here for those of us who are afflicted, as all of God’s people are that love Him and love His Word. Quoting from here God is using Paul so we read this. This is then to Jesus Who did come overcame Satan, or as in Hebrews 2:14, the power of death, the devil. We can only make it through Jesus. Some sadly will perish, but Jesus is eternal, His Word is His very Name! Their seed, or the people of Israel, in which Jesus did come. That nation was faithful to God in the first earth age, as a people every person did make and not worship Satan. The other nations, peoples and tongues, the Gentiles, some failed, but God is willing to give this opportunity of His mercy to all peoples so listen up! Only God can Judge, not man! Then moving along here:
Hebrews 1:13 “But to which of the angels said He at any time, “Sit on My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool”?”
Then here God is asking to which one of the angels did God give this ability to rule His people and the nations? Was it an angel, even Lucifer, or Satan, the archangel of Ezekiel 28, that instead of protecting God’s throne that sat in it, and will again? Of course not! Then here:
Psalms 110:1 “(A Psalm of David.) The LORD said unto my Lord, “Sit Thou at My right hand, Until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.”
Until we, the elect of God, that listen to His Word and then do them, and teach them so that other people have a chance in the flesh to withstand Satan as well. That is the role of the church and the people that make it up, period. Then moving on:
Hebrews 1:14 “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”
These are just the messengers of God’s Word, those people that love Him and will stand up, not for men’s traditions, and religion, and some church doctrine, no way! But listen to the LORD God Jehovah and His Son, The Word of God, Jesus Christ. That is who both you and I! I will do it, will you? Ask for His help, to open up your eyes even more, so that HE can use you to help pull other people out of the fire of Satan’s destruction, for remember he will come first as in II Thessalonians 2:3-4. It is our job to stand up for God and will gladly do so! Right on! Amen!
