Two Songs Two People
- Revelation 12 -
" Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun,
with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth."
She is a woman,... a bride if you will,
through whom Elohim himself would be born in the flesh and dwell among His people in glory, as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Yet even then, at the very incarnation of the Living Elohim, Israel would reject Him just as she had done in so many ways and times before.
So who then is Israel?
Is she the 'Covenant Nation' and 'Chosen People' of eternal promise and blessing?
Or a nation and people whose vast majority would more often than not 'play the harlot',
behaving in blasphemous and contemptible ways so as to reject her Elohim;
continually breaking His covenant, always grieving His heart,
and forever provoking Him to anger and judgment?
The answer is that Israel is both...
She is the Covenant Nation and People, by the choice of Elohim,--
and a harlot so often and in so many ways, by her own choice.
Yet from the beginning there has always been a remnant of 1%ers in Israel that would not bend the knee, nor bow the head to any but to the true Elohim Chayim.
And in these last days, a Jewish Remnant will come forth to be a holy people in Yeshua.
An extraordinary people, chosen and separate from the harlotry of the people and nation around them...
Truly, a nation within the nation.
They will not be part of the prophesied end-time deception, as Israel and all the nations of the world will align themselves with the antichrist who is coming with great powers of intrigue,- to socially, economically, politically and spiritually captivate the nations and make 'the world as one' through all power, signs, and lying wonders,- deceiving even the Elect if possible.
Yes, a prophesied time of peace is coming; a false peace and many lies to deceive the nations,... for the Counterfeit must come first before Messiah's return and the true peace and restoration of Israel.
The Counterfeit; the Beast,
whom all the world, and certainly you O Israel, will follow and place your trust in. For the antichrist will cause you to build the third temple, Ezekiel's Temple, from which you will carry out your abominable sacrifices, having rejected the one true sacrifice and blood of Elohim Chayim,-
And when you, O Israel, shout "Peace and Safety", know that swift and sudden destruction will come upon you. For it will be then that the man of sin will stand in your temple and demand that the entire world worship him as God.
It is of that day and hour that Yeshua spoke in Matthew 24:
15“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation', spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 "then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened."
These things are not written for the sake of Israel the harlot, but for the sake of Israel the bride, the Elect, who will come through the fires of destruction, and go to the Thousand Year Reign with Messiah at His return. For even on the very day of Yeshua's return, the enemies of Elohim will have already descended upon your hills and valleys, O Israel, putting to death two thirds of the people in the land, and taking Jerusalem captive for plunder, rape, and murder as foretold by the prophet Zechariah.
These things are written, O Remnant, that you may be given ears to hear, and eyes to see,...
that you might believe in Him who gave His life a ransom for your life, a sacrifice for your sins,...
that you might believe upon His name, be covered by His blood,
and be filled with the holiness of His Spirit, Ruach Hakodesh.
It is of YOU, O Remnant,
and of Messiah's Millennial Kingdom, that it is written;
"and so all Israel will be saved".
Yes, O Remnant,... all these things are written for YOU!
They are written through the blood of the prophets,- the blood of the martyrs,-
and the BLOOD OF THE LAMB!
They are written so that you might believe on Him who died for you,
and escape the judgment that is to come.
And to the present-day Jews in Israel who call themselves 'Christian', yet are not of the 144,000,
I say to you; 'walk in the lowest of humility, not thinking more highly of yourself, or that you are somehow special because you are Messianic Believers living in the Land in the last days.
For if you reason that you have attained some higher stature because of 'who and where' you are,
know this,... JUDGMENT WILL FIND YOU.'
And in my spirit, I am sure that many will find themselves under such judgment,
just as an apostate gentile-church is also coming under judgment in these last days.
Take heed, O Israel,-
for just as you faced great judgments and destruction in the past,
so great judgments and destruction are still to come.
Now see what is prophesied...
Yes, see what Elohim has spoken concerning you, O Israel, my sister.
Understand why He has said to you through the prophet Ezekiel;
"Be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel!"
For the truth is that over the years you have not changed at all as a people,
except perhaps to have grown even worse as the time now approaches,
and you embrace the spirit of antichrist.
Yes, read and understand;
- Exodus 32 -
1 Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” 2 And Aaron said to them, “Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” 3 So all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron. 4 And he received the gold from their hand, and he fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf. Then they said, “This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!” 5 So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to Adonai.” 6 Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 7 And Adonai said to Moses, “Go, get down! For your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves. 8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!’” 9 And Adonai said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people! 10 Now therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them. And I will make of you a great nation.”
(Let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them)
- Deuteronomy 9 -
4“Do not think in your heart, after Adonai your Elohim has cast them out before you, saying, ‘Because of my righteousness Adonai has brought me in to possess this land’; but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that Adonai is driving them out from before you. 5 It is not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart that you go in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations that Adonai your Elohim drives them out from before you, and that He may fulfill the word which Adonai swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 6 Therefore understand that Adonai your Elohim is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people..... 13 “Furthermore Adonai spoke to me, saying, ‘I have seen this people, and indeed they are a stiff-necked people. 14 Let Me alone, that I may destroy them and blot out their name from under heaven; and I will make of you a nation mightier and greater than they.' "
(Let Me alone,that I may destroy them
and blot out their name from under heaven)
- Deuteronomy 31 -
16 And Adonai said to Moses:“Behold, you will rest with your fathers; and this people will rise and play the harlot with the gods of the foreigners of the land, where they go among them, and they will forsake Me and break My covenant which I have made with them. 17 Then My anger shall be aroused against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured. And many evils and troubles shall befall them, so that they will say in that day, ‘Have not these evils come upon us because our Elohim is not among us?' 18 And I will surely hide My face in that day because of all the evil which they have done, in that they have turned to other gods.
(and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured,...
and many evils and troubles shall befall them)
19“Now therefore, write down this song for yourselves, and teach it to the children of Israel; put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for Me against the children of Israel. 20 When I have brought them to the land flowing with milk and honey, of which I swore to their fathers, and they have eaten and filled themselves and grown fat, then they will turn to other gods and serve them; and they will provoke Me and break My covenant. 21 Then it shall be, when many evils and troubles have come upon them, that this song will testify against them as a witness; for it will not be forgotten in the mouths of their descendants, for I know the inclination of their behavior today, even before I have brought them to the land of which I swore to give them.”
(that this song may be a witness for Me against the children of Israel)
22 Therefore Moses wrote this song the same day, and taught it to the children of Israel. 23 Then he inaugurated Joshua the son of Nun, and said, "Be of good courage; for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land of which I swore to them, and I will be with you." 24 So it was, when Moses had completed writing the words of this law in a book, when they were finished, 25 that Moses commanded the Levites, who bore the ark of the covenant of Adonai, saying: 26“Take this Book of the Law, and put it beside the ark of the covenant of Adonai your Elohim, that it may be there as a witness against you; 27 for I know your rebellion and your stiff neck. If today, while I am yet alive with you, you have been rebellious against Adonai, then how much more after my death? 28 Gather to me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their hearing and call heaven and earth to witness against them. 29 For I know that after my death you will become utterly corrupt, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you. And evil will befall you in the latter days, because you will do evil in the sight of Adonai, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.”
(And evil will befall you in the latter days)
30 Then Moses spoke in the hearing of all the assembly of Israel the words of this song until they were ended:
Deuteronomy 32 (Song of Moses) “Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, as raindrops on the tender herb, and as showers on the grass. 3 For I proclaim the name of Adonai: ascribe greatness to our Elohim. 4 He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, the Elohim of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He. 5 “They have corrupted themselves; they are not His children, because of their blemish: a perverse and crooked generation. 6 Do you thus deal with Adonai, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not your Father, who bought you? Has He not made you and established you? 7 “Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations. Ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you: 8 when the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. 9 For Adonai’s portion is His people; Jacob is the place of His inheritance. 10 “He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. 11 As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings, 12 so Adonai alone led him, and there was no foreign god with him. 13 “He made him ride in the heights of the earth, that he might eat the produce of the fields; He made him draw honey from the rock, and oil from the flinty rock; 14 curds from the cattle, and milk of the flock, with fat of lambs; and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the choicest wheat; and you drank wine, the blood of the grapes. 15 “But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; you grew fat, you grew thick, you are obese! Then he forsook Elohim who made him, and scornfully esteemed the Rock of his salvation. 16 They provoked Him to jealousy with foreign gods; with abominations they provoked Him to anger. 17 They sacrificed to demons, not to Elohim, to gods they did not know, to new gods, new arrivals that your fathers did not fear. 18 Of the Rock who begot you, you are unmindful, and have forgotten Elohim who fathered you. 19 “And when Adonai saw it, He spurned them, because of the provocation of His sons and His daughters. 20 And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be, for they are a perverse generation, children in whom is no faith. 21 They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not Elohim; they have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols. But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move them to anger by a foolish nation. 22 For a fire is kindled in My anger, and shall burn to the lowest hell; it shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. 23 ‘I will heap disasters on them; I will spend My arrows on them. 24 They shall be wasted with hunger, devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction; I will also send against them the teeth of beasts, with the poison of serpents of the dust. 25 The sword shall destroy outside; there shall be terror within for the young man and virgin, the nursing child with the man of gray hairs. 26 I would have said, “I will dash them in pieces, I will make the memory of them to cease from among men,” 27 had I not feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should misunderstand, lest they should say, “Our hand is high; and it is not Adonai who has done all this.”’ 28 “For they are a nation void of counsel, nor is there any understanding in them. 29 Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! 30 How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and Adonai had surrendered them. 31 For their rock is not like our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom and of the fields of Gomorrah; their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter. 33 Their wine is the poison of serpents, and the cruel venom of cobras. 34 ‘Is this not laid up in store with Me, sealed up among My treasures? 35 Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; their foot shall slip in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come hasten upon them.’ 36 “For Adonai will judge His people and have compassion on His servants, when He sees that their power is gone, and there is no one remaining, bond or free. 37 He will say:‘Where are their gods, the rock in which they sought refuge? 38 Who ate the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offering? Let them rise and help you, and be your refuge. 39 ‘Now see that I, even I, am He, and there is no god besides Me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; nor is there any who can deliver from My hand. 40 For I raise My hand to heaven, and say,“As I live forever, 41 if I whet My glittering sword, and My hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to My enemies, and repay those who hate Me. 42 I will make My arrows drunk with blood, and My sword shall devour flesh, with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the heads of the leaders of the enemy.”’ 43 “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people; for He will avenge the blood of His servants, and render vengeance to His adversaries; He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”
(I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be...
Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this,
that they would consider their latter end)
In the years to come after Moses, the Spirit of Elohim would raise up many prophets to deal with His wayward people. And while there would be many judgments against Israel in the days from Moses to Messiah, it would not be until after their rejection of Messiah that the greatest judgment would come;
'the dispersion from the Promised Land, and the curse that would follow them'.
- Jeremiah 9 -
13 And Adonai said,“Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not
obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the
dictates of their own hearts and after the Baals, which their fathers taught them,"
15 therefore thus says Adonai Tseva'ot (the Lord of Hosts), Elohei Israel (God of Israel):
“Behold, I will feed them, this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.
16 I will scatter them also among the gentiles, whom neither they nor their fathers have known,
and I will send a sword after them until I have consumed them.”
(I will scatter them also among the gentiles,...
and I will send a sword after them)
Amazingly, even long before the fulfillment of Jeremiah's diaspora prophecy, the aliyah prophecy was given through Ezekiel foretelling the future return of the people and nation of Israel in the last days. Yet concerning that return, Elohim even rebukes the very people who would be returning in that day, telling them that He will not be doing it for their sake, and to be ashamed and confounded for their own ways.
And in the very midst of His promise to one day return this unworthy people to the soil and nation of Israel, a Millennial Kingdom prophecy is also given in Ezekiel 36 which declares that He will restore His righteousness among His people Israel,- a restoration and righteousness that can only begin to fulfill when 'He is hallowed in them before the eyes of the nations'-- at Yeshua's return and reign.
- Ezekiel 36 -
16 Moreover the word of Adonai came to me, saying: 17 “Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own ways and deeds; to Me their way was like the uncleanness of a woman in her customary impurity. 18 Therefore I poured out My fury on them for the blood they had shed on the land, and for their idols with which they had defiled it. 19 So I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed throughout the countries; I judged them according to their ways and their deeds. 20 When they came to the nations, wherever they went, they profaned My holy name—when they said of them, ‘These are the people of Adonai, and yet they have gone out of His land.’ 21 But I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations wherever they went. 22“Therefore say to the house of Israel,‘Thus says Ha'adon Adonai (the Lord God):“I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went. 23 And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am Adonai,”says Ha'adon Adonai,“when I am hallowed in you before their eyes. 24 For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land... 25 (Millennial Kingdom passage) Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. 28 Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your Elohim. 29 I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. I will call for the grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you. 30 And I will multiply the fruit of your trees and the increase of your fields, so that you need never again bear the reproach of famine among the nations. 31 Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good; and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight, for your iniquities and your abominations. 32 Not for your sake do I do this,” says Ha'adon Adonai,“let it be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel!"
(I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel,
but for My holy name’s sake)
And now, just as prophesied, Israel 'the nation' is back in the Land, and is ever-returning, as more and more Jews continue to find their way to the soil of their distant heritage. Yet also just as prophesied, Israel is made a stumbling block by Adonai himself; a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense, both to herself and to the nations, and will be the focus and reason for a pre-tribulation world war, and whose temple will one day be the headquarters of the antichrist in his tribulation reign of terror upon the earth.
Will Israel survive?
Most certainly she will,... but not the Israel of today, nor much of the Israel of the tribulation.
She will ultimately survive only by the return of Messiah,
and His holy Remnant (true Israel) ushered into the Millennial Kingdom.
In the End of Days there is much to come to you as a people, O Israel;
much in judgment, and much in mercy.
Fires of judgment to test and purge,
and mercy to refine and reveal the purest of gold among you.
All that is despised in the eyes of Elohim will finally be removed from you,
that the Apple of His Eye may flourish.
So may it be within us all.
Let those who have ears to hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying,
as the Remnant of Israel is being chosen and established in these last days.
- Revelation 12 -
3 And another sign appeared in heaven:
behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to Elohim and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Elohim, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days (3 1/2 years).
- Zechariah 13 -
8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,” says Adonai,“that two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it: 9 I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them.
I will say,‘This is My people’; and each one will say,‘Adonai is my Elohim.’”
- Zechariah 14 -
Behold, the day of Adonai is coming, and your spoil will be divided in your midst.
2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
(Revelation 11... the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt)
the city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then Adonai will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus Adonai my Elohim will come, and all the saints with You... 6 (Millennial Kingdom) It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. 7 It shall be one day which is known to Adonai— neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. 8 And in that day it shall be that living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea; in both summer and winter it shall occur. 9 And Adonai shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be— “Adonai is one,” and His name one. 10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses. 11 The people shall dwell in it; and no longer shall there be utter destruction, but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. 12 And this shall be the plague with which Adonai will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths. 13 It shall come to pass in that day that a great panic from Adonai will be among them. Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor, and raise his hand against his neighbor’s hand; 14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem, and the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be gathered together: gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance. 15 Such also shall be the plague on the horse and the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and on all the cattle that will be in those camps.- So shall this plague be. 16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Adonai Tseva'ot, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Adonai Tseva'ot, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which Adonai strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 20 In that day “HOLINESS TO ADONAI” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. The pots in Adonai’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holiness to Adonai Tseva'ot. Everyone who sacrifices shall come and take them and cook in them. In that day there shall no longer be a Canaanite in the house of Adonai Tseva'ot.
- Ezekiel 47 -
Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. 2 He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on the outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water, running out on the right side. 3 And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. 4 Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. 5 Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. 6 He said to me,“Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river. 7 When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. 8 Then he said to me:“This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. 9 And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. 10 It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. 11 But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt. 12 Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.” 13 Thus says Ha'adon Adonai: “These are the borders by which you shall divide the land as an inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel. Joseph shall have two portions. 14 You shall inherit it equally with one another; for I raised My hand in an oath to give it to your fathers, and this land shall fall to you as your inheritance. 15“This shall be the border of the land on the north: from the Great Sea, by the road to Hethlon, as one goes to Zedad, 16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim (which is between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath), to Hazar Hatticon (which is on the border of Hauran). 17 Thus the boundary shall be from the Sea to Hazar Enan, the border of Damascus; and as for the north, northward, it is the border of Hamath. This is the north side. 18“On the east side you shall mark out the border from between Hauran and Damascus, and between Gilead and the land of Israel, along the Jordan, and along the eastern side of the sea. This is the east side. 19“The south side, toward the South, shall be from Tamar to the waters of Meribah by Kadesh, along the brook to the Great Sea. This is the south side, toward the South. 20“The west side shall be the Great Sea, from the southern boundary until one comes to a point opposite Hamath. This is the west side. 21“Thus you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel. 22 It shall be that you will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who dwell among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the children of Israel; they shall have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. 23 And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger dwells, there you shall give him his inheritance,” says Ha'adon Adonai.
- Revelation 7 -
4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed.
One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.
- Revelation 14 -
Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion,-
and with Him one hundred and forty four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. 3 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 Elohim and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of Elohim.
"They sang, as it were, a new song before the throne,...
and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand
who were redeemed from the earth"
In that glorious day of Yeshua's return,
the Song of Moses will no longer be a testimony in Israel as a witness against them,
but a new song in the mouths of the Remnant;
- The Song of Redemption -
- Revelation 5 -
9 And they sang a new song, saying:
“You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain,
and have redeemed us to Elohim by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 and have made us kings and priests to our Elohim; and we shall reign on the earth.”
"There is a chosen in Israel, but not all Israel is chosen...
There is a protection over Israel, but not all Israel is protected."
I stand with Yeshua haMashiyach and His remnant elect;
a nation within the nation,... the 'all Israel' that will be saved.
- Jeremiah 31 -
31 “Behold, the days are coming,"says Adonai, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says Adonai. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Adonai: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know Adonai,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says Adonai. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
- Zechariah 12 -
10 "And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced."
( February 2011 )
In the spirit, I was shown a hanging balance;
'GENTILES' on one side -- the other side 'JEWS'
As the gentile side slowly became full and began to lower,
the other side, conversely, was elevated.
( These are the days that are upon us - Romans 11 )
