Hebrews Part 8
2 of 2
Ezekiel 44:25 “And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves: but for father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter, for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may defile themselves.”
How could we here in the Lord’s Day, or the thousand years, go to a family member if we could not recognize them, as here we will be in the spiritual, or celestial bodies, not in the flesh, or terrestrial bodies, when the Lord returns? We cannot! Then also let’s go here:
John 1:18 “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, Which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him.”
One step even deeper, hang in there with me, okay! The Lord Jesus, the Son of God, has seen God, meaning just as we came in the flesh Jesus did the same thing as Son of Man, meaning HE put on a flesh Body showing us that HE was not too good to live here in the flesh, but HE did it perfectly showing us His example. Okay then, when we see Jesus right? We are then seeing the LORD God. If you cannot conceive that, it’s okay, just think about it. Meditate upon it, and then come back on it. Just separate roles and positions for the Lord. As we all are different things like some fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, and so on. Let’s go here as well:
Deuteronomy 5:24 “And ye said, ‘Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.”
Deuteronomy 5:25 “Now therefore why should we die? For this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more, then we shall die.”
Just as the LORD God talked with Moses in the burning bush and Moses did not die, Moses, Aaron and the people of Israel they say the glory of the LORD our God and His greatness. We have to continue to hear His Word, do it, as best we can, repent, and then sin no more. Then also here:
Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
Again here, Jesus name Emmanuel, which is from here in the Old Testament:
Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the LORD Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Immanuel (Strong’s 6005) with us (is) God; (from Strong’s 6006) to load, i.e. impose a burden, be borne, (heavy) burden, lade, load, put; and (from Strong’s 3050) Jah, the sacred name: the Lord, most vehement.
That sign happened, Jesus was born to the Virgin, His mother Mary, and His Name Immanuel, meaning God with us. Telling us right there that God dwelled among flesh people through His Son Jesus Christ when He lived on this earth as Son of Man, meaning in the flesh. Then moving along here:
Hebrews 8:6 “But now hath He ordained a more excellent ministry, by how much also He is the Mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.”
Hebrews 8:7 “For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.”
Jesus is our Mediator, when we come to Heavenly Father asking for His help through our prayers, we pray in Jesus’ Name, telling the Lord that we believe on Him, upon His Word. That is the better promise, that now we don’t have to go through some man, some high priest or Levitical priest. So if some church or religion makes their members do this, think about what they are robbing you of, the better promise of His Word, and that is not from God, but from Satan. Then going here:
Jeremiah 31:31 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:”
This is the where in the Word of God His Word had told us beforehand that Jesus would accomplish this by defeating the power of death, who is the devil, by doing this. Also, here:
Matthew 27:50 “Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.”
Matthew 27:51 “And, behold, the veil of the Temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;”
Matthew 27:52 “And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose.”
Matthew 27:53 “And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and sent into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”
Ghost (Strong’s 4151) a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze; a spirit, i.e. (human) the rational soul, vital principle, mental disposition, (superhuman) an angel, demon, or (divine) God, Christ’s spirit, the Holy Spirit.
When Jesus finished reading Psalms 22, and gave up His Spirit, not Ghost, a mistranslation, as we serve the Lord of the Living, not the dead, as that is only Satan. The veil, meaning that veil that separated the Holy of Holies from the outside, in which the high priest would come on behalf of all the people offering to the LORD God for their sins, and his own, would wear bells on the bottom of his garment, for nobody else could enter in, to see if he died or not! That veil then, not from the bottom to the top, but rather the top to the bottom, putting Jesus’ hand on what happened! It was a miraculous, only done by God, not man, happening symbolizing this. We each as believers in prayer go right to Heavenly Father at any given time can talk and pray to Him, in the Name of Jesus. The new covenant or promise, which the law, then Jesus became, not that Jesus took away, as remember we learned that Jesus did not come to destroy the law, not even a jot or tittle, or the sound of one letter of it. Then moving along:
Hebrews 8:8 “For finding fault with them, He saith, “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:”
Hebrews 8:9 “Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continue not in My covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the LORD.”
Hebrews 8:10 “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the LORD; I will put My laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to Me a people:”
Hebrews 8:11 “And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest.”
Hebrews 8:12 “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”
Hebrews 8:13 “In that He saith, “A new covenant,” He hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Then this is yet looking future to the Lord’s Day, or the thousand years, when we all go to the celestial bodies, or the spiritual bodies at the last trump, when Jesus stands as in Zechariah 14:4 at His temple at the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. All of Israel, as the house of Judah, most of them reside in the land of Judea, or the Jews, today along with the sons of Cain, who say they are Jews, but in reality are the Kenites, or Satan’s children, as in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9, the synagogue of Satan. The rest of Israel scattered, many in Europe, the Americas and the majority are clueless about who they are as a nation or a people. That’s okay as here as well:
Ezekiel 37:1 “The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, “
Ezekiel 37:2 “And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.”
Ezekiel 37:3 “And he said unto me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord GOD, Thou knowest.”
Ezekiel 37:4 “Again he said unto me, “Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, ‘O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.”
Here in Ezekiel God is telling him to teach the people of Israel, as they are represented as bones with no meat on them. The meat is God’s Word, so God saying teach them, or prophesy to them. For when we teach God’s Word, that puts the meat on our bones, laying the foundation for when something happens, just like we read in Mark 13, in these end times, we have prophesy going down daily, even hourly sometimes! God has given us all the prophets in His Word, we have Moses, Elijah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and so forth. We need to know what the LORD God told us through them, meaning His Word, so then we can warn the people. Then here, why we came here, both the house of Israel, the ten tribes that went north, as well as the house of Judah, or the southern kingdom of Judah, Benjamin and the Levites, they all will then become one nation, at the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Again, we live separately, with many living here in the United States, Canada, South America and many who came from Europe, living there as well from the House of Israel, not Judah. Judah, the majority, or the Jews, some live here in the United States, too, but mostly in the land of Judea, or Israel. Any child could point out where they think the people of Israel live in the nation Israel, which are only the house of Judah, or the Jews, but remember they have the Kenites, mixed in with them, or the sons of Cain, or the serpent’s seed, of Genesis 3:15, giving them a bad name. So then here:
Ezekiel 37:16 “Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:”
Ezekiel 37:17 “And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.”
Ezekiel 37:18 “And when the children of thy People shall speak unto thee, saying, ‘Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?’”
Ezekiel 37:19 “Say unto them, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in Mine hand.’’”
Ezekiel 37:20 “And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.”
God then teaches us here that Joseph, representing the house of Israel, as God changed his name to Israel. God’s Word using Ephraim, one of the largest tribes out of the ten northern tribes. Then the other stick, or the people of Judah, Benjamin and Levi, the Jews we call them, okay, the true ones, they will be as one nation, and one people, under the Lord, Our Lord Jesus Christ. This is not today but we have yet to look forward to it. Then Hebrews 8:8-12 is quoting from here in:
Jeremiah 31:31 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:”
Jeremiah 31:32 “Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers I the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which My covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:”
Jeremiah 31:33 “But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be My People.”
Jeremiah 31:34 “And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD:’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
This again is after the Lord returns, or the Lord’s Day. The new covenant, or promise, making them as one nation. Then the Lord will put His Word in our minds, or give us total recall of His Word, our inward parts our minds. We will not have to ask someone if they are a believer or a Christian, as we will all, both believers and non-believers, will see the Lord Jesus on the first day of His return, but then The Lord judges, and people go where He sends them for that thousand year period. There will be then still time for boredom, and worry, doubt, fear, as Satan’s evil spirit will be there to torment the majority who will have worshipped him in the flesh just as in Luke Chapter 16. That gulf they cannot cross, as well as in Matthew 25, the five virgins without enough truth, or oil in their lamps, to get to the Lord’s return, for they will have worshipped Satan. Then here:
Matthew 25:1 “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”
Matthew 25:2 “And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.”
Matthew 25:3 “They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:”
Matthew 25:4 “But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.”
Matthew 25:5 “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.”
Matthew 25:6 “And at midnight there was a cry made, ‘Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go yet out to meet him.”
Matthew 25:7 “Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.”
Matthew 25:8 “And the foolish said unto the wise, ‘Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.’”
Matthew 25:9 “But the wise answered, saying, ‘Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.’”
Matthew 25:10 “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.”
Matthew 25:11 “Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, ‘lord, lord, open to us.’”
Matthew 25:12 “But he answered and said, ‘Verily I say unto you, I know you not.’”
Matthew 25:13 “Watch therefore for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
Oil (Strong’s 1637) olive oil; (from Strong’s 1636) an olive (the tree or the fruit); (The word El ah Yah or Jah in Hebrew)
Be one of the five virgins that had enough truth to get you through the wilderness when Satan sits on God’s throne claiming to be God as in II Thessalonians 2:3-4. The Lord then shuts the door, they cannot go to Him directly during the thousand year period, so let’s shoot for overcoming in the flesh. The Word of God is our Teacher. Not my words, or any church’s teaching, or religion, but His Word. The Oil, is the Holy Spirit, His Holy Spirit, His Word. Know it and be successful. You can do it, I know it. Keep it up, everyday and be blessed today and be happy! Jesus has overcome already and we can be happy, but practice every day, sharpen that weapon, your weapon, which is His Word, as in Ephesians 6:11. I love you for trying, most important He does. Keep it up!
