CRAZY HORSE and HAZELELPONI

(H6753 צללפּוני tsel-el-po-nee')

I’m jesting to make a point:

January 21, 2022

First Chronicles 3 – 8 John 6

1 Chronicles 4:3 And these were of the father of Etam; Jezreel, and Ishma, and Idbash: and the name of their sister was Hazelelponi:

These 6 chapters of First Chronicles 3 through 8 are seemingly nothing but so-n-so begat so-n-so who begat… of Israel. I said, “seemingly,” because within these genealogies are interesting nuggets of TRUTH. Put another way, IF this list of names is not worth our time to read and ponder each PERSON and who they ARE, who would want to consider your name and mine in The LAMB’s Book of LIFE? CRAZY man! or should I say CRAZY HORSE*?

(Click on above image for source.)

Most likely I’m out on the lunatic fringe — or am I? As I read these chapters and pondered each person’s name, especially what the spelling of the name may possibly tell us in the paleo Hebrew picture language, images flickered on the back wall of my mind:

American Indian Code Talkers


The idea of using American Indians who were fluent in both their traditional tribal language and in English to send secret messages in battle was first put to the test in World War I with the Choctaw Telephone Squad and other Native communications experts and messengers. However, it wasn’t until World War II that the US military developed a specific policy to recruit and train American Indian speakers to become code talkers.


That was audio, spoken language. As far as we know, Native Americans had no written AlephBet, only pictorial petroglyphs, totem poles, tipi paintings, etcetera, but no AlephBet. So, why do I mention CRAZY HORSE? As they say, when General George Custer met Crazy Horse — Custer wore his first ARROW SHIRT, and rightfully so. I enjoy those who call it Buster’s Cattle Field :o)) Crazy Horse was a true PATRIOT of his NATION on THIS continent!!!

Crazy Horse


Crazy Horse (Lakota: Tȟašúŋke Witkó,[2] IPA: [tχaˈʃʊ̃kɛ witˈkɔ], lit. ''His-Horse-Is-Crazy''; c. 1840 – September 5, 1877)[3] was a Lakota war leader of the Oglala band in the 19th century. He took up arms against the United States federal government to fight against encroachment by white American settlers on Native American territory and to preserve the traditional way of life of the Lakota people. His participation in several famous battles of the Black Hills War on the northern Great Plains, among them the Fetterman Fight in 1866, in which he acted as a decoy, and the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876, in which he led a war party to victory, earned him great respect from both his enemies and his own people.


In September 1877, four months after surrendering to U.S. troops under General George Crook, Crazy Horse was fatally wounded by a bayonet-wielding military guard while allegedly[4][5] resisting imprisonment at Camp Robinson in present-day Nebraska. He ranks among the most notable and iconic of Native American warriors and was honored by the U.S. Postal Service in 1982 with a 13¢ Great Americans series postage stamp.


Again, as they say, “What goes around comes around,” hence the US Federal Government is again encroaching upon ALL Americans! HEY! If Moses led the first Exodus and we, in THIS generation, are facing The GREATER EXODUS and if Noah lead the first Reset, we in THIS GENERATION are facing The GREATER RESET!! hasatan is a monkey-see-monkey-do expert! The genealogies we just read in First Chronicles 3 - 8 are the lineage of Shem, son of Noah, one of the only 8 who survived the first reset. Shem = Sem and those who hate Israel are anti-SEMites. This is virtually one third of the world’s population because Japheth and Ham also had descendants. The point being, the GREAT RESET is in process, as we speak, and BUILD BACK BETTER (with emphases on “BACK”) is the plan to achieve the first commandment of the Georgia Guidestones:

7.9 billion minus ?? you ?? me ?? minus ?? = 500,000,000 (1/2 billion, right?) This won’t hurt, just roll up your sleeve… Bows and arrows, Thompson sub-machine guns, grenade launchers — no-no-no — it’s a whole NEW SHOOTING MATCH!!!

Speaking of The LAMB’s Book of LIFE and the bookS (plural, actually 66+ of them) that will be opened and upon which we will be judged… I have to ask myself, why am I doing what I am doing? How will I answer The JUDGE for my actions?? I love Monte Judah’s answer, Because this is what YOU showed me how to do. As the sun sets on this 6th day, SHABBAT TOV, because HE did.

JACOB’S WELL

(not just another “hole-in-the-ground” :o)

January 19 & 20, 2022

First Chronicles 1 & 2 John 4 & 5

Genealogies… B-O-R-R-R-R-I-N-G ! If it weren’t for genealogies, we would not know the age of the Earth; and, ignoring Biblical genealogies is the catalyst of evolution — to blind the masses from GOD’s time clock and CREATION reality. “Millions and billions of years…” juxtaposed with 6 days — with a day being as a thousand years — and here we are :o/ First Chronicles chapter 1 may seem

B-O-R-R-R-R-I-N-G; so,

let’s focus on one tiny verse:

1 Chronicles 1:34 And Abraham begat Isaac.

The sons of Isaac; Esau and Israel.

This is the only mention of Israel, in this entire chapter of genealogies, including all the “Dukes of Edom” (Esau); and, Israel does not even get one full verse as she shares this one tiny verse with the Edomites = the non-Israeli sons of Esau. How profound! There is a BIG WORLD out there, full of lost people who are not Israel; and yet, our CREATOR loves them (such as me), too — so much so that HE has sacrificed HIS Wife Israel and HIS Son Yeshua for ALL of us. Israel, YHVH’s Wife, has been brutalized beyond measure, for the rest of the WORLD to see the personality (the blessings and the curses) of The ALMIGHTY. I sit here in tears. One small voice… in a GIANT WORLD of CHAOS. I just finished The Wayne Alderson Story STRONGER THAN STEEL (for at least the 3rd time) about one man who dedicated his life to “THE VALUE OF THE PERSON.” Wayne was called the man with “the hole in his head.” A German hand grenade exploded in his face and after many Many MANY surgeries to reconstruct his skull, a deep depression remained in his forehead. This book is amazing as it tugs at our heartstrings and motivates us to really care about others. If I may quote Wayne in the last chapter:

“The Value of the Person is not new. We need to dust off the history books and read the story again. Our fathers made far greater sacrifices than we are making—not for profit, but for an ideal, the value of people. It wasn’t even new then, they didn’t invent it, it was already in the Bible.”

Stronger than steel: The Wayne Alderson story

Wayne Alderson 86

June 7, 1926 — February 22, 2013

just a side note:

is the 6th letter of the Hebrew AlephBet vav or waw?

Wayne’s Mother-in-law, a “Swede,”

was on her hospital deathbed and asked Wayne,

“Vayney, I’m going to die, aren’t I?”

Wayne spoke the truth and she replied,

“Don’t cry, Vayney.” I’m ready to go.

I vonder how it’s going to be?

FLASH BACK:

I remember Jacob fearing the ramifications of Simeon and Levi, after they slaughtered all the men of Hamor and Shechem:

Genesis 34:30 And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.

One man with 12 sons, against all the other nations, and I watch the travels of Israel as they went down to Egypt — following Joseph their brother whom they had sold — while the rest of the WORLD was multiplying TOO. Vould it be a s-t-r-e-t-c-h to believe Israel is a tiny pinch of “leaven” in THREE HUGE MEASURES of meal??? Yes, Selah (Pause) and Muse (Think)

In the UNSEEN REALM, are we the brothers who sold YESHUA?

In John 4, as Yeshua sat at the well that Jacob had given to Joseph and spoke with the woman who had already had FIVE husbands — it has been suggested that she was not an adulteress; because, had that been the case she would have been stoned to death! More aptly, she could not conceive and 5 men had rejected and divorced her AND Yeshua recognized the battered Spirit in her. Yeshua came to bring The LIFE that Israel had failed to do. Nothing new. The world is a mess; and yet, remnants all over this globe are returning to The WELL of TRUTH. I am told that Iran has the fastest growing underground church in all the world! Whether Israeli or not, ABBA is gathering HIS Children. Who are HIS Children? As we lOOk through the scope and put the crosshairs on Israel — yes — we have a clear view of the bull’s eye; however, directly behind us is a WORLD of lost souls, who surround the tiny acreage of Israel. In Israel is the mount upon which GOD’s LIGHT once shined. As phosphorus continues to illuminate when the source of light has been removed, Jerusalem is the menorah to a world of moths! First Chronicles 2 becomes a parabolic dish focusing ABBA’s illumination into a spot-on-Israel, HIS Wife. As in Song of Solomon, She desires HIM but still has other “lovers,” so much so that She refuses to get out of bed and answer the door while Her HUSBAND is outside in THE RAIN knocking. I love Mottel Baleston, a Jew who has recognized YESHUA:


Mordechai Mottel Baleston


While the world has been multiplying like Easter Bunnies, YESHUA is showing us Jacob’s Well, “John 4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. YESHUA Jesus therefore, being wearied with HIS journey [which includes from and back to the UNSEEN REALM], sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.” Was YESHUA the only one “from” that UNSEEN REALM? Pull up a chair and let’s talk:

I once heard a sermon in which the pastor read John 1:6 correctly; and then, he convoluted that verse to mean something totally NON-Biblical. Here’s what he read:

John 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

Then he proceeded to explain how John had been sent BY God. There we go — totally OFF TRACK!! The word, “BY” has nothing to do with the place of origin. The word “FROM” removes all doubt about where John came “FROM”! Where are we “FROM”? And the BIGGER question is, HOW DO WE RETURN? If you want to touch off an explosive charge, just mention this to many of the PROTESTant pastors and watch the proverbial fur fly!

From Jacob’s Well, in John chapter 4, we finish the very next chapter with:

John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed ME: for he wrote of ME.

John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe MY WORDs?

YESHUA was speaking the writing of Moses at Jacob’s Well! Why don’t so many pastors? As they say, “go figure.” I’ve got a neighbor who would not touch the Bible with a 10’ pole but is forever saying, “BY god.” He would fit well, in those churches.

First Chronicles 2 is drawing our attention to the tiny nation of Israel. John 5 is drawing our attention to the same, as YESHUA is telling us about HIS origin, mission, and what WE ARE TO BELIEVE:

John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed ME: for he wrote of ME.

John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe MY WORDs?

I love Jephthah, whose mother was an harlot. My mother was not an harlot per se (even though I was begotten out of wedlock and so was my half sister of a different man). I am not a mighty warrior per se (even though I boxed, street and bar brawled, in decades gone by — thank YHVH that is far behind me!). And yet, Jephthah, in Judges 11 & 12 is one of my heroes. Jephthah was another war hero and those two chapters are a valuable read and well worth the few minutes to savor.

Do I drink? In my 20s, I drank enough booze for several lifetimes. I believed that Jesus drank booze/wine and I actually went toe-to-toe with a Baptist preacher (who, BTW, was correct, in my humble opinion :o) However, as we debated, I quoted:

Matthew 11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

And:

Luke 7:34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!

That Baptist preacher’s “checkmate” statement was: “The Scriptures do not say that HE was a winebibber; but, “theythe Pharisees, said HE was.” In Luke 7:34ye” is also referring to the Pharisees. That preacher challenged me to read:


Bible wines: laws of fermentation and the wines of the ancients by WILLIAM PATTON, D.D


Bible Wines: On Laws Of Fermentation And The Wines Of The Ancients


The laws of fermentation and the wines of the ancients


I read that book and now I have to ask myself, am I going to believe everything the Pharisees say? Which shoe shall I put on first and which shoe shall I tie last??!!

OK so like…

Here we are, in a WORLD of confused deceived hate and discontent — in these tabernacles of flesh, trying to motivate from A to B and back to A without getting knocked down or stepping in something and if I may reiterate in automotive jargon, pages 96 & 97 of MEMOIRS OF A SOJOURNER available at:

EDSEL

May 11, 2009

Psalm 52 Hebrews 12

When you hear the word, “Edsel,” do you think of man or machine? The man, Edsel Ford (1893-1943) was the son of automobile maker Henry Ford. The machine, Edsel, was an automobile manufactured by Ford Motor Company during the years 1958, 1959 and 1960.

Henry sired, begat, fathered his son, Edsel. Henry created, formed, made the Model T. Together, Henry and Edsel introduced the Model A. Henry did not create, form, make his son. Nor did Henry sire, beget, father the car. There is a tremendous difference between these two verb groups and there is a most precious parallel regarding our Father in Heaven, with regard to us—His children—and our flesh in which we dwell.

As Edsel was both man and machine, we are both spirit and flesh. Almighty God sired, begat, Fathered our spirit* and HE created, formed, made our flesh**. As Edsel climbed inside a Model T—a car that his dad had created, formed, made—and traveled the highways of life; in like manner, our spirit climbs inside this flesh body, that was created, formed, made by our Father, and we travel the highways of life. Our spirit “partakes”*** of flesh and blood even as Jesus did.

* And the LORD God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7. Breathed: a puff, that is, wind, angry or vital breath, soul, spirit. H5397

** And God said, Let us make man…. Genesis 1:26. So God created man…. Genesis 1:27. And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground…. Genesis 2:7

*** Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. Hebrews 2:14.

I remember the General Motors people making a mockery of the Edsel and saying that it looked like an Oldsmobile sucking a lemon! Ha! I still chuckle. On a more serious note, the father of lies—and his children—make a mockery of both that which our Father in Heaven sired, begat, fathered and that which HE created, formed, made.

Ford and GM are big, but they don’t hold a candle to our Father in Heaven and HIS Archenemy, Satan. It is Satan that has crashed into, dented, and rusted our bodies, filling us with cancer, smoke, booze, flu, pollution, disease, etc. When God created, formed, made, all of creation, it was show room perfect. It is sin that corrodes our batteries and weather checks our tires. But that’s not all. Our dented rusted out bodies are only temporary and it is our “eternal” spirit that Satan is really after! Hence, our proverbial dash boards and innermost parts need a coat of ArmorAll, or in more Biblical terms: Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:11

The car (flesh) is just a blip in time. Our person, our spirit, is “eternal”—begotten of God, Who is eternal. Whether we are “sons of God” or “sons of perdition”—and they are a whole other hub cap full of lug nuts—we climb into this temporary ride, as dead men behind the wheel—for ALL have sinned (Romans 3:23). We are in desperate need of restoration, revival, rebirth, begotten again*. Thanks to Jesus, HE restoreth** my soul, (Psalm 23:3).

* Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3.

** re·store vt 1. give something back: to return something to its proper owner or place 2. return something to previous condition: to bring something back to an earlier and better condition 3. energize somebody: to give somebody new strength or vigor. I felt restored after my weekend away. 4. return somebody to previous position: to return somebody to a previously held rank, office, or position. restore the ousted governor to his office. 5. put something back: to reestablish or put back something that was once but is no longer there. restore order in the capital. (See renew).

HE restoreth my soul!

May the Lord add His blessing to the reading of His Word, as we read it ALL daily cover-to-cover repeatedly for a clear view of this road on which we travel.

Well, Israel is GOD’s vehicle and we must ask ourselves, are we going to hitch a ride or just keep walking away on an endless road?

If my turn signals are not low on “flicker fluid,” I think I’ll turn in to my favorite rest stop and fuel up on another Bible chapter or two :o)) As the ENCO gas station people used to say, “HAPPY MOTORING” and I say, “Shalom aleichem” because:

FAMINE not of bread

January 18, 2022

Second Kings 25 John 3

2 Kings 25:3 And on the ninth day of the fourth month the famine prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people of the land.

Currently, we have rebelled against the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In spite of that, there is HOPE; and yet, let’s lOOk at where we are RIGHT NOW. HIStory is repeating itself as famine is currently a very real threat in these United States of America. Food shortages are in the national news AND it is in our local grocery stores. Not only food but also… Yesterday, at the hardware store, an entire aisle of shelves were full with large plastic totes. These totes are usually nested in one single stack, taking up about 2’ x 3’ of floor space; but no, they were spread out to fill several entire empty shelves for the APPEARANCE of no famine. Shifting gears in the same transmission:

1 Corinthian 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

That’s a mouthful. As I once heard, about eating grizzly bear, the more you chew it the bigger it gets! This passage has been used to argue against the reality of “eternal” LIFE, that the flesh came first and then the spirit popped out of nowhere and here we are — to which John 3:8 says something very different:

John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Of course, we know what Yeshua said to the PHARISEE Nicodemus, in street lingo, “Do you mean to tell ME that you are a religious high poot-n-poot and you don’t know this stuff?” If I may be a bit sarcastic to make a point, if Jesus really is a taco vender in Houston: “Hosay, can you see, by the dawns early light… does our flag yet wave?” by the wind that originated at the flag pole??? Let’s get serious. Where did that wind/SPIRIT come from? Why do Hindus believe in REincarnation?? Why do Mormons believe in PRE-existence??? They understand that our eternal Spirit came from somewhere; but, they mix in so much deadly doctrine that d-CON has them beat. At least d-CON is 99.995% good food with only .005% poison mixed in. The fact remains, our eternal Spirit did not come through the loins of Adam. Adam was in the image of GOD. Adam sinned and his eternal Spirit died. Flat rabbits, on the highway, cannot procreate any more than Adam’s dead Spirit could beget Spirit in Seth; hence, Seth was in the image of Adam, NOT GOD. SPIRIT comes from somewhere. It is “eternal,” not SELF-EXISTANT as is our FATHER; but nevertheless, our eternal LIFE came FROM the FATHER, died and via repentance and returnis alive againper:

Luke 15:32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Enough beating on that drum. How hungry are we really? Do we crave tacos or TORAH?? Who cares??? YESHUA cares! HE cares so much that HE is directing our attention to Moses!!

John 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness [that the people might live], even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Just hopscotch over the next verse and memorize the most quoted verse in the Bible:

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave HIS only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life.

everlasting”? What meaneth “everlasting”? In the Greek, “everlasting” was translated from the same WORD as “eternal” in the previous verse, which we hopscotched over. I use a KJV Bible originally translated in 1611 and use an 1828 Dictionary which is as close as I can get to the 1300 Wycliffe* & 1500 Tyndale** vernacular and the 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary of the English Language defines “eternal” as: “WITHOUT beginning or end of existence.” That’s a mouthful; but, it gets FULLER!! Does your John 3:16 say “only son” OR “only begotten son”?? What difference does it make, you may ask. Well, it seemed to be fighting words to an Episcopal pastor who read it as “only son” at a christmas community choir cantata. When the cantata was over and the hall was empty, that pastor went to the lectern to retrieve his notes. I approached him, in that empty room without an audience, as to not make a scene, and asked him which Bible translation he quoted John 3:16 from. The fact that a low-life layman would question his religious AUTHORITY lit his fuse and he charged toward me and would have run right over me had I not stepped aside! That, ALONE, tells me that there is something very volatile in the WORD “begotten.” This prompted me to do much study; and, I have mined some valuable nuggets of TRUTH from the mother-load of SCRIPTURE. If Yeshua is the FATHER’s ONLY Son, then, you and I cannot be, right? My KJV is telling me that Yeshua’s flesh is the only FLESH “BEGOTTEN” of The FATHER. John 3:16 is not telling us that Yeshua’s eternal Spirit was begotten at that time, but that HIS flesh is the only begotten of YHVH. Again, if Yeshua is our FATHER’s ONLY Son — then you and I cannot be CHILDREN, the “OFFSPRING” of GOD per Acts 17:28 & 29 and Revelation 22:16. Our Spirits are eternal and Yeshua is our eternal Brother; hence, HE calls us HIS Brothers, Sisters and Mother because we are all the “offspringof The FATHER. Well, as you can see, various pastors avoid me like the plague and I just don’t know why…. NOT :o))

The book of Second Kings ended this morning with chapter 25. It has been a rollercoaster ride of kings who “did that which is right in the sight of YHVH” and those who “did that which was evil in the sight of YHVH.” We see a pattern. Obey and be blessed. Rebel and be cursed. To eat or not to eat — this is the question. When I read:

2 Kings 25:3 And on the ninth day of the fourth month the famine prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people of the land.

This came to mind:

Amos 8:11-12 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing The WORDs of the LORD יהוה: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek The WORD of the LORD, and shall not find it. [and here we are.]

The Menorah Part 1



As we move away from the north side of the Holy Place and the life sustaining bread, we now travel to the south side in which the Menorah stands.

Shemot (Exodus) 25:31-32 And thou shalt make a lampstand of pure gold: of beaten work shall the lampstand be made; its shaft, and its branches, its bowls, its knobs, and its flowers, shall be of the same. And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; Three branches of the lampstand out of the one side, and three branches out of the other side.

The word candlestick in the King James English is from the Hebrew word menorah (מנרה). This word is taken from the word nur (נור) or light. The nur or light forms the middle of the word menorah. With the addition of the mem prefix and feminine singular suffix the light now becomes the apparatus from which the light shines, illuminates, or exposes. If you read the text casually you would conclude that this lampstand is formed with six branches, however a closer study reveals a middle shaft called a yarek (ירך). The six branches actually extend from this shaft and all seven branches form the menorah that is one beaten work. This is the meaning behind the supplied phrase "of the same". The word "it" in verse 32 refers back to the shaft. The word yarek is generally translated as thigh, loins, or body (Bere’shiyt (Genesis) 24:2, Shofetiym (Judges) 8:30). The six branches extend out from the shaft and are yet one with the shaft. Is it just a coincidence that believers of the Messiah, whether Jew or Gentile are referred to as branches in Romans 11? Is it just mere happenstance that these branches are all one with the central shaft or tree, and called the body of the Messiah? Even further, is it just the luck of the draw that Yeshua‘ uses this lampstand to refer to His kehillot (assembly, "church") in Hitgalut (Revelation) 1:20?


As we continue to study the tabernacle structure it will become clear that the Most Holy and Holy Places are completely covered in various linens and skins. The inner sanctuaries were dark, very dark. There was no natural light to enter this place. Only the light of the menorah was to illuminate the Holy Place or the place of ministry. Ministry is to be driven by the light of God and not by man's design or desires. The life-sustaining shewbread was to be eaten by God's priests, but that food was to be shared or given to all that hunger for righteousness. The light of the menorah expresses that commission. Our minds are to be illuminated by God's light. His light speaks forth of the contents of the ark of His testimony. It is this light that is to be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path (Mizemor (Psalm) 119:105). Proverbs 6 sums it up:

Mishlei (Proverbs) 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp, and the law is light, and the reproofs of instruction are the way of light.

Torah teaches Israel that they were to be His light to the nations.

Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 49:6... I will also give thee for a light to the nations, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

Historically, we know that Israel failed to do this, so Abba prepared a body, Himself, to be that same light to the gentiles. "I, YHVH, have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations...". Yeshua‘, confirming that calling in Yochanan (John) 8:12, claims to be the light of the world. Yeshua‘ then calls those who follow Him, whether Jew or Gentile, to be the light of the world in Mattitiyahu (Matthew) 5:14. According to the idioms and symbols understood and practiced by the writers of the New Testament, the symbol of light spoke of the menorah in the temple. The menorah, according to their thinking, was the illuminating expression of the edut (עדות) or testimony of the ark. This is known as Torah [The books of Moses which are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.]. Remember, Yeshua‘ is the author of all that is written in the Tanakh [Old Testament]. To be a light was not simply a quaint, poetic expression to denote a glowing personality. It had a previous firmly established meaning familiar to Yeshua’‘s brethren. For example, the term "sons of light" used by Sha’ul [Paul] in 1 Thessalonians 5:5 was speaking of the children or inheritors of Torah, the light of God. This would be a good time to go back to our archives and click on lesson 4 of my discussion on the defining of light. Light was Torah and Torah was light, and every physical activity of God's people was to be guided by this. Many times I wonder what most modern Christians think Yochanan (John) means when he says that we are to walk in the light. Are we supposed to conjure up an image of strolling around with a piercing glow about us? Is being a light to mean that I put "Jesus" bumper stickers on my car, or buy only "Christian" music? Am I being a light when I enter church on Sunday or go to Wednesday nite Bible study? Am I being a light to the world by just telling people about Jesus or confronting the cults? Or does the word of God teach us that to be a light is: to proclaim God's ways to a world covered in darkness, and that the answer to all of man's trials is found in His word? To theologically restrict our commission to proclaiming that Yeshua‘ is the Savior of the world, is to provide a lost world with the apparatus of the light, but not the light.

The menorah was never to go out. In Vayiqera (Leviticus) we read,

Vayiqera 24:2-3 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.

The priests obeyed this command because they understood the meaning of the light. It was the word of YHVH that sustained their lives, not to mention the universe. The sages of old, before Yeshua‘’s time, taught that the universe was held together by Torah, and Torah was formed by the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. If Torah failed to be spoken, much less observed, the world would melt away with a fervent heat. Sound familiar? Kefa (Peter) uses this same image to describe the end times in 2 Kefa [Peter] 3:10. He describes this in conjunction with the "day of the Lord". When you investigate all the verses in the Tanakh concerning the "day of the Lord", you will see most of them describe a time in which all peoples have rejected Torah. This is why ‘Amos describes it as a time of darkness.

‘Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of YHVH! To what end is it for you? The day of YHVH is darkness, and not light.

The menorah goes out in the tabernacle. Three chapters later ‘Amos will proclaim again,

‘Amos 8:11 Behold the days come, saith YHVH ’Elohiym, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of the hearing of the words of YHVH;...

The six branches of the menorah are to be of one beaten work with the shaft or seventh branch. This lampstand was to be the symbol of Israel. However, it was designed to be the symbol of all that claimed to be one with the seventh branch. This is why Yeshua‘ uses this same image in describing the condition of seven of His kehillot (churches) at the time that Yochanan [John] wrote, and a symbol of the kehillot since then. Hitgalut [Revelation] chapter two and three are also an accurate prophetic description of the condition of His branches today. In Hitgalut 2:1-7, there is a description of the k(q)ahal (קהל) (church - singular) at Ephesus, and it begins by mentioning one of the aspects of Yeshua‘’s ministry. "...who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands." Yeshua‘ commends this group first by reminding them of their dedication to forging out imposters, and of their works, and patience. However, He then tells them what He has against them. They have lost their first love, and will not go back to their first works and repent. He says that if they continue He will remove their lampstand from its place. Many times I have been confronted with verses four and five, and asked to defend certain "salvation" doctrines. As it is with much of what the New Testament teaches, this scripture is not teaching whether you can or can not lose your salvation. It is a warning to repent! If you are a child of God then repent! If you are a believer and cleave to a doctrine that states you can do something to remove yourself as a child of God, then Yeshua‘ is telling you to repent. However, if you have been taught that there is nothing you can do to render yourself "unborn again" then God is still telling you to repent!


The light of the menorah pictures the word of God, and the menorah is the bearer of that light. The light of the menorah is to first irradiate the mind with the testimony of God. That testimony is then to be taken to the nations. Take this symbol of God's instructions for man and bring it into 1 Yochanan [John]:

1 Yochanan 1:5-7 This, then, is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth; But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Yeshua‘ the Messiah, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

Yochanan goes on to relate sin to darkness, and light to keeping His commandments. If walking in the light is vital to our "Christian" walk, then would it not be imperative to know what walking in the light means?

Yesha’yahu [Isaiah] 8:20 To the law and to the testimony; if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Shalom Alecheim! [Peace be upon you!]

 

Key to Timing of the Rapture is the phrase “Day and Hour No One Knows”


January 15, 2022


The famous phrase "day and hour" from the phrase "Day and hour no man knows" is quoted multiple times by Jesus in the gospels and in Revelation. All of these quotations are referring to the same day and the same hour. So knowing this, all the things that happen on that day and hour refer to the same event!!! Watch this Nelson Walters video to discover what that event is and when it happens.


5 Eyewitnesses in Revelation as to the Timing fo the Wrath of God

A Reward for the Righteous


From the beginning of history, man has been troubled by the injustices of this age. We are reminded every day of the unpleasant fact that the wicked prosper greatly, while the good must work twice as hard to get half as much. In the 21st chapter, Job bitterly asked, “Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty, in power?” In the 73rd. Psalm, Asaph says: “I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men. Their eyes standout with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.” In the 37th Psalm, David says: “I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree." [Job 21:7; Psalm 73:3, 5, 7; Psalm 37:35] .


Accustomed to only see things within the small framework of this short lifetime, men wonder why this can be. The reason, of course, is to teach us the bitter lesson that there cannot be any coexistence between good and evil, one must necessarily destroy the other. We hate to believe this, partly because we are too lazy to do the job of putting down evil and partly because we are by nature too easy going and too tolerant. We must learn the hard way that tolerance is no virtue unless it is mutual, you can’t tolerate a cancer.


The Bible makes it clear that these few years of prosperity and power are all the wicked will ever get, after that nothing. Psalm 17:14 speaks of, “Men of the world, which have their portion in this life, whose belly Thou fillest with Thy hid treasure; they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.” But after that, what?


Psalm 49:16-20 reminds us, “Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; for when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. Though while he lived he blessed his soul (and men will praise thee when thou doest well to thyself), he shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light, man that is in honor and understandeth not is like the beasts that perish.”


In the judgment, the worst of these go back where they came from and can never come back to trouble you. In the King James Bible we read in Psalm 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations which forget Yahweh.” In the Hebrew that verse reads, “The wicked shall be returned into hell.” This may give you some idea why they act as they do.


We must learn that evil is not a thing in itself, something which can be prohibited or regulated by itself. It is the actions of evil people, as long as they do exist, they will be what they are. They will act as their inherent nature urges them to act. You can’t get freedom from crime by letting all the habitual criminals run loose. Meanwhile you futilely tell them, thou shalt not, you can only restrain their conduct by removing them from society.

We must also learn that Yahweh is merciful when He takes such people away. Justice for the wicked is the only possible mercy to the righteous. Yahweh makes it clear this removal of the wicked, is a necessary part of our reward. Malachi 4:1-3 says, “The day cometh that shall burn as an oven; and all the arrogant, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith Yahweh, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that reverence My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise, with healing in his wings; 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 Yahweh.” It could not be otherwise. If the wicked were still here, they would steal your reward before you had time to see what it was.

Paths of Old - Ancient Paths


Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21


“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves....” (Jeremiah 6:16)


“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)


Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).


“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

The Second Coming of Saturn Part 21: Molech


January 16, 2022


Here is where Saturn’s desire to be the king of the universe becomes most evident. In this part of our series, we analyze the character and worship of yet another of his identities—Milcom, chief god of the Ammonites, who’s better known to history as Molech.


If anything, Molech, which is sometimes spelled “Molek” or “Moloch,” is even more mysterious than Dagan. Since ancient Semitic languages such as Akkadian, Ugaritic, and Hebrew had no vowels, it’s difficult to tell when mlkmeans “king” (melech), “messenger” or “angel” (malak), and when it’s the name of the dark god Molech. This condemnation of idolatry from the book of Isaiah is a case in point:

You journeyed to the king [mlk] with oil and multiplied your perfumes; you sent your envoys far off, and sent down even to Sheol. (Isaiah 57:9, emphasis added)

In that context, given the reference to Sheol, the Hebrew underworld, “the king” could just as easily read “Molech,” a god linked almost exclusively to the netherworld. Obviously, that would change the entire sense of the verse.


Molech’s first appearance in the Bible is in Leviticus 18, where God told the Israelites that they were forbidden to give their children as an offering to the dark god. Molech’s cult, however, extends back at least a thousand years before Moses.

The Second Coming of Saturn Part 22: Mount of the Destroyer

Even though he’s been imprisoned in the abyss since the Flood of Noah, Milcom/Molech has continued to exercise his considerable supernatural power on the earth. Through the foreign wives Solomon collected during his reign, the dark god influenced Solomon to build a high place for him that overlooked the Temple Mount:

For when Solomon was old his wives turned away his heart after other gods, and his heart was not wholly true to the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth [Astarte] the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and did not wholly follow the Lord, as David his father had done. Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Molech [Milcom] the abomination of the Ammonites, on the mountain east of Jerusalem. (1 Kings 11:4–7)

The mountain east of Jerusalem can only be the Mount of Olives, which rises nearly three hundred feet above the Temple Mount. Solomon probably built those high places after 950 BC, and they stood for about three centuries until the time of King Josiah, who reigned from about 640 BC until his death in 609 BC:

And the king defiled the high places that were east of Jerusalem, to the south of the Mount of Corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had built for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Sidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. (2 Kings 23:13, emphasis added)

The Second Coming of Saturn Part 23: Kronos, King of the Titans

The Greeks and Romans shared a good deal of their religion. The names were different, with the notable exception of Apollo, but the gods were pretty much the same. Zeus of the Greeks was Jupiter of the Romans. Likewise, Aphrodite was Venus, Ares was Mars, Hera was Juno, Hephaestus was Vulcan, and so on.


Similarly, Kronos, king of the Titans, was the equivalent of the old god of the Romans, Saturn. In both Roman and Greek religion, this was the deity who ruled the earth during a long-ago Golden Age, when humanity lived like gods, free from toil and care. Both were overthrown by their son, the storm-god, and confined to the netherworld. To the Greeks, this was Tartarus, a place as far below Hades as the earth is below heaven; in Roman myth, Jupiter put Saturn in chains to ensure that he didn’t overeat. It was believed that Saturn consumed the passing days, months, and years, and it would have been a problem if the old god had turned his voracious appetite to eating the present and future as well.


Kronos’ family relations were strained, to say the least. You’ve probably heard the story: The primordial couple, Ouranos (Sky) and Gaia (Earth), gave birth to the first generation of gods, the Titans, and some monstrous siblings—Argus, a giant with a hundred eyes, the Cyclopes, giants with only one eye, and the Hecatoncheires, giants with a hundred arms and legs. However, the passion of Ouranos was such, the story goes, that the Titans were trapped inside Gaia, unable to escape her womb. With the encouragement of his mother, Kronos led his siblings in a rebellion and castrated his father with an adamantine sickle.

Jeremiah’s Prophetic Message for the British and American Peoples


January 19, 2022


To learn more about Jeremiah's message to the British and American people, get our free Book, "The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy" for free: https://bit.ly/3fFSBmU Why is this free? We are determined to follow Jesus’ command to "freely give" (Matthew 10:8).


Many people are waking up to the fact that our world is going in a terribly wrong direction. These are not normal times. The humiliating and disgraceful manner in which the United States and its allies pulled out of Afghanistan, is more evidence that the American empire is in a steep decline and the fallout from this disaster will have long-lasting consequences. In addition, we see record-setting heat and drought in much of North America, Australia, and many other parts of the world. We see internal instability in nation after nation. Old alliances are collapsing and new ones forming. And all the while, these problems are being accompanied by the greatest shift in moral values we’ve ever seen.


The biblical prophet Jeremiah recorded a message for this time and it especially pertains to modern day British-descended and American peoples. Do you know what that message is? You need to know, because what Jeremiah predicted is happening right before our eyes, and sadly, it is only going to get worse before it gets better. Yet, Jeremiah did have good news along with the bad. But to understand Jeremiah’s message, we must first identify the American and the British-descended peoples in the pages of the Bible. It may come as a shock, but they are mentioned prominently, only by another name. To supplement today’s program, I’ll be offering our free study guide—The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy.


So stay tuned as I’ll be giving you Jeremiah’s message to the United States and the British-descended peoples.


Welcome to Tomorrow’s World, where we bring you the prophecies of the Bible and the good news of the coming return of Jesus Christ. His return is the best news ever, because if He does not return, no flesh would be saved alive—so said Jesus. He speaks of a time like no other in human history in His Olivet Prophecy found in Matthew 24, beginning in verse 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. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.


The biblical prophet Jeremiah also speaks of this same unprecedented time in his message for us, and we would do well to understand it. Few people understand the true identity of the British-descended and American peoples, but that understanding is critical to understanding Jeremiah’s message. We have explained many times here at Tomorrow’s World, and in our free literature and magazine, that the British-descended and American peoples can be identified in the pages of the Bible. And to help you understand who we are, we are offering you our free study guide—The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy.


Most people assume that when the Bible speaks of Israel it refers to the Jews alone, but the Jews are only the smallest portion of Israel.


The man named Jacob had twelve sons. One was named Judah and he was the father of the Jews. But what about the other sons? Did they simply disappear or become absorbed into the Jewish nation?


At the end of his life, Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel, predicted what would happen to all twelve of his sons at the end of the age. Notice it in Genesis the 49th chapter and beginning in verse 1.


And Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days...” (Genesis 49:1).


Yes, “in the last days”—that is the time setting for these prophecies. He begins with his firstborn, Reuben, who had a specific moral shortcoming that would affect his descendants all the way to the end-time.


Gather together and hear, you sons of Jacob, and listen to Israel your father. “Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity and the excellency of power. Unstable as water, you shall not excel, because you went up to your father’s bed; then you defiled it—He went up to my couch” (Genesis 49:2-4).


Yes, Reuben displays excellency in dignity and military power, but comes up short. For more reasons than I have time to go into on this short program, we understand Reuben to be modern day France, where we see a rich culture and “excellency in dignity and power,” but a nation that has been loose morally and never reached its great potential.


Here is what Jacob predicted for the Jews at the end of the age. Notice that he is a military power that should not be aroused and that it would be through the Jews that the Messiah would come—first with the coming of Jesus, but also at the end of the age.

The Coming Global Famine


January 18, 2022


Sometime around 4,000 years ago, the Pharaoh of Egypt summoned an imprisoned slave named Joseph. Two dreams bothered Pharaoh, and none of his magicians or wise men could interpret them (Genesis 41:1-8). In his first dream, Pharaoh saw seven fat, healthy cows grazing by the Nile. Then seven thin cows appeared and ate the seven fat ones. In his second dream, Pharaoh saw seven large, beautiful heads of grain. Then seven shriveled heads of grain appeared and swallowed up the first seven.


Pharaoh asked Joseph to interpret the dreams. "I don't have the power to do this," Joseph told him. "But God does, and He can tell you what it means." Joseph went on to tell Pharaoh the meaning of the dreams. He said seven years of famine will follow seven years of plenty.


In response, Pharaoh made Joseph the second most powerful man in Egypt (Genesis 41:40). He put him in charge of the land, and Joseph collected one-fifth of the food produced for the next seven years. He stored up massive amounts. When the famine came, it hit neighboring nations hard. People from the lands all around Egypt came to buy grain from Joseph (Genesis 41:57).
