THE TWO HOUSES OF ISRAEL
This is Part 5 of Part 8 of our study on The Two Houses of Israel. If you missed Part 1, click HERE. If you missed Part 2, click HERE. If you missed Part 3, click HERE. If you missed Part 4, click HERE.
Yeshua didn’t just die for the Jews, but He also died for those “children of Yahweh who were scattered abroad.” Anyone who knows the history of Israel as revealed in the Old Testament knows that those children who were scattered abroad (by Yahweh Himself) were the lost House of Israel. It is interesting (and prophetic) that right after this prophecy was given, Yeshua went into a city called Ephraim, which is also the symbolic name for the children of Yahweh who had been scattered into all nations.
Earlier, we read in the Tanakh (Old Testament) from the prophetic book of Hosea about how Yahweh would punish the House of Israel (Samaria) for their sins. We saw that Hosea’s three children born to him by Gomer were symbolically named to describe the fate of Ephraim: Jezreel (“Yah sows”) described Yahweh’s future sowing of the House of Israel throughout all the nations; Lo-Ruhamah (“no mercy”) showed that Yahweh was not going to have mercy on Israel for a period of time; and Lo-Ammi (“not my people”) revealed that those from the House of Israel would not be known as Yahweh’s people for a time.
But the prophecies from Hosea also show that a time would come when Yahweh would regather His children and have mercy on them once again. Just to set the stage, let’s recap a few of the pertinent passages from Hosea that speak of this time of forgiveness:
Hosea 1:10 “Yet the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl shall be as the sand of the sea, which is not measured nor counted. And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ they shall be called, ‘You are the sons of the living Ěl.’ ” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis added]
Hosea 2:19-23 “ “19 And I shall take you as a bride unto Me forever, and take you as a bride unto Me in righteousness, and in right-ruling, and kindness and compassion. 20 And I shall take you as a bride unto Me in trustworthiness, and you shall know יהוה (Yahweh). 21 And it shall be in that day that I answer,” declares יהוה (Yahweh), “that I answer the heavens, and they answer the earth, 22 and the earth answer the grain and the new wine and the oil, and they answer Yizreʽĕl (Jezreel). 23 And I shall sow her for Myself in the earth, and I shall have compassion on her who had not obtained compassion. And I shall say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people,’ while they say, ‘My Elohim!’ ” ” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comments added]
Now that we have reacquainted ourselves with the principal prophecy about the restoration of the House of Israel (Ephraim), let’s look at a few passages from the New Testament that speak of this event. We’ll start in the introduction to Peter’s first general epistle. It is addressed to an interesting group:
1 Peter 1:1 “Kĕpha (Peter), an emissary of יהושע (Yeshua or Yahshua) Messiah, to the chosen, strangers of the dispersion in Pontos, Galatia, Kappadokia (Cappadocia), Asia, and Bithunia (Bithynia),” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comments added]
Who was Peter writing to? Most scholars interpret his introduction to mean that he was writing to messianic Jews who remained outside the Holy Land. However, these Jews could not rightfully be considered “exiles” at the time Peter wrote. The legal decrees of Persian kings Cyrus, Darius, and Artaxerxes (recorded in the book of Ezra), issued some five centuries earlier, meant that these Jews were no longer officially exiled from Judea. However, the Israelites who were conquered and taken into captivity by Assyria were never formally released from their exile. Therefore, we see that Peter was not speaking here to Diaspora Jews, as the common interpretation of this verse assumes, but rather to Israelite exiles dispersed throughout Asia Minor who had accepted Yeshua as the Messiah!
Now let’s look at a very revealing passage in 1 Peter 2:
1 Peter 2:1-10 “1 Having put aside, then, all evil, and all deceit, and hypocrisies, and envyings, and all evil words, 2 as newborn babes, desire the unadulterated milk of the Word, in order that you grow by it, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Master is good. 4 Drawing near to Him, a living Stone – rejected indeed by men, but chosen by Elohim and precious – 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up, a spiritual house, a set-apart (Holy) priesthood, to offer up spiritual slaughter offerings acceptable to Elohim through יהושע (Yeshua or Yahshua) Messiah. 6 Because it is contained in the Scripture, “See, I lay in Tsiyon a chief corner-stone, chosen, precious, and he who believes on Him shall by no means be put to shame.” (see Isaiah 28:16) 7 This preciousness, then, is for you who believe; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone,” (see Psalm 118:22) 8 and “A stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling,” (see Isaiah 8:14) who stumble because they are disobedient (see John 3:36, Hebrews 3:18) to the Word, to which they also were appointed. 9 But you are a chosen race (generation), a royal priesthood, a set-apart (Holy) nation, a people for a possession, that you should proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light, 10 who once were (Lo-Ami) Not a People, but now the people of Elohim (God); who(Lo-Ruchamah) Had Not Obtained Compassion (Mercy), but now obtained compassion (rachamim).” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comments added]
SIDE NOTE: In the “Restoration Scriptures-True Name Edition” Bible, I captured a footnote on Lo-Ami from 1 Peter 2:10 as follows:
In times past, Efrayim-Yisrael alone was called Lo-Ami by YHWH. Today the non-Jews in the exile who now believe in Yisrael’s Messiah, are called the former Lo-Ami, or “Not My People” pronounced in Hosea 1:9 and Hosea 2:23. Peter quotes Hosea directly and attributes these prophecies about the ten tribes as finding full fulfillment in the non-Jewish Yisraelite believers in the exile, who are coming to the faith, in order to form a royal priesthood. This answers the rhetorical question of whether Peter knew about the two houses being restored.
In verse 9, Peter paraphrases Yahweh’s words to Israel (Exodus 19:6) and applies them to those Gentiles in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia who were accepting Yeshua. In the original passage, Yahweh told Moses that the House of Jacob, the children of Israel, would be “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation” IF they obeyed Him. In verse 10, Peter again uses a scriptural reference from the book of Hosea originally meant for the House of Israel that had become “not a people” and to whom Yahweh showed “no mercy.”
There are really only two ways to understand what Peter says here. He was either implying that the Gentiles who were coming into the 1st-century Church were “replacing” the lost Israelites and inheriting the promises of Yahweh in their stead (a form of replacement theology), OR he was showing that those who were coming into the Church in these areas were actually members of the “lost tribes” who were then being regathered into Israel through Messiah Yeshua.
The writings of Paul show that the second option is the most likely. Let’s look at Paul’s comments to the Romans to support this understanding:
Romans 9:22-26 “22 And if Elohim, desiring to show wrath, and to make His power known, with much patience tolerated the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, 23 and that He might make known the riches of His esteem on vessels of compassion, which He had prepared beforehand for esteem, 24 even whom He called, not only us of the Yehuḏim (Jews), but also of the gentiles? 25 As He says in Hoshĕa too, “I shall call them My people, who were not My people, and her beloved, who was not beloved.” 26 And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ there they shall be called sons of the living Elohim.” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comment added]
In this passage, Paul quotes from the prophecy of Hosea that we read earlier about the eventual recovery of the Israelites (Ephraim and the tribes associated with him) who were cast away by Yahweh for their sins (Hosea 1:10). Unless Paul too was using this prophetic Scripture to show that Yahweh was replacing the lost Israelites spoken of by Hosea, the Gentiles he referred to must have been descendants of those 10 lost tribes.
This concludes our study of Part 5 of Part 8 on The Two Houses of Israel. Stay tuned for Part 6.
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE
November 8, 2021
First Samuel 1 – 4 Revelation 11 – 14
Hundreds and thousands of mile posts zip by, as we travel this road of life, each marking the distance traveled; but, where did we start? Where are we going?? What are we doing??? In what do I pledge my allegiance????
As a youngster, I pledged allegiance “to the flag.” When inducted into the military, I pledged allegiance to defend this nation against ALL enemies — “foreign AND DOMESTIC.” When I gave my ETERNAL LIFE to The ALMIGHTY, I pledged allegiance to HIM — and… what EXACTLY does that mean? The following bivouac sets the stage:
1 Samuel 4:2 And the Philistines put themselves in array against Israel: and when they joined battle, Israel was smitten before the Philistines: and they slew of the army in the field about four thousand men.
1 Samuel 4:3 And when the people were come into the camp, the elders of Israel said, Wherefore hath the LORD smitten us to day before the Philistines? Let us fetch the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of Shiloh unto us, that, when it cometh among us, it may save us out of the hand of our enemies.
When I was reading this, I had flashbacks of the Exodus when Egypt pursued Israel into the Red Sea WITH THEIR PRIESTHOOD — because Egypt wanted their gods with them in the battle to insure the WIN! Deep sea video footage has shown us a gold plated FOUR spoke Egyptian chariot wheel on the bottom of the Red Sea. Historians have determined that this was not the Pharaoh’s wheel nor that of the army; but, it was that of their priests who were there to ensure the WIN — BUT, they, TOO, were defeated by The GOD of Israel.
Mileposts of wilderness wandering have come and gone. The walls of Jericho have fallen to The GOD of Israel. The Promised Land was, indeed, flowing with milk and honey (which means that the crops were abundant for the bees to pollinate and abundant flocks and herds were multiplying and giving much milk) and this was ALL the blessing of The GOD of Israel. Now there is a war. Do we pledge our allegiance to a religious object or to The GOD of Israel?
Religious object? While on our recent road trip, at a fuel stop, a fellow on the other side of my fuel island was intrigued with “Pete” and came near to visit. We discussed The GOD of Israel. He was on his way to his girlfriend’s new apartment with his gift of a plaque that says:
Joshua 24:15 … as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
He joyfully showed me the plaque and I said, “NICE TOUCH!” :o)))
Yes, nice touch; and yet, what does the first part of that verse tell us?
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,
choose you this day whom ye will serve;
whether the gods which your fathers served
that were on the other side of the flood,
or the gods of the Amorites,
in whose land ye dwell: but…”
Is a “nice touch” plaque as good as The ARK of The COVENANT? Israel LOST the war with the Palestinians because their allegiance was to the ARK/PLAQUE instead of The GOD of Israel. I asked the fellow if he had ever read the entire Holy Bible cover-to-cover as-it-is-written and he said, “No.” How could he possibly KNOW about “as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” if he does not KNOW how to serve in SPIRIT and TRUTH?? Honoring The LORD’s Feasts are The LORD’s COMMANDMENTS (see John 14:15 If ye love ME, keep MY Commandments.); but, the fellow at the pump had no clue. Quickly, very quickly, I gave him a few tips about the importance of The FEASTS. He and I both seemed blessed by this brief visit; and then, MaraDale and I traveled on home.
Is Revelation 13:6 speaking to us about the conversation I had with the man at the pump? This is about the antichrist and his religions, TODAY, that speak against The LORD’s FEASTS:
Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme HIS Name, and HIS Tabernacle, … [WHOA! STOP!!]
HIS Tabernacle? At the fuel stop, the man with the plaque knew NOTHING about The LORD’s TABERNACLE! Most religious people TODAY don’t hava clue either! The ARK of The COVENANT was taken from us because man had trusted in it rather than The LORD. The Tabernacle was taken from us because man trusted in it rather than The LORD.
The ARK of The COVENANT and The LORD’s TABERNACLE are to be in us.! These are The WORDs spoken to us in ALL languages on Mt. Moriah on The LORD’s FEAST of SHAVUOT/Pentecost when the flaming tongues of FIRE burned these things into the hearts of the few who PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE to The GOD of Israel!!! Is the FEAST of TABERNACLES a religious ritual OR is it our rehearsal for rapidly approaching global events?? Again, most folks have nary a clue; BUT, WE have this opportunity to BE INFORMED:
1 Samuel 3:19 And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.
1 Samuel 3:20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.
1 Samuel 3:21 And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed HIMself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.
“words” and “the word” were translated from the Hebrew “dâbâr” H1697 דּבר Dalet, Beit, Resh: Dalet is a door. Beit is a house. Resh is our head; hence, the word of our FATHER’s HOUSE/TABERNACLE should come out of the DOOR in our HEAD!!! :o)))

SPIRIT FROM THE LORD
November 19, 2021
First Samuel 19 Matthew 6
These two chapters are no mere snack-for-thought; but, these 2 chapters are a BANQUET of royal fine dining! I have to confess (based on the fact that I have been hoodwinked in the past) that I am in the process of “VETTING” this whole “GREATER EXODUS” concept. If you think I am a “doubting Thomas,” the following may be the substance of your thinking:
In the early 1980s, I was selected to play the part of Thomas in a “LAST SUPPER pageant.” Each of the 12 Apostles went, one-by-one, to the lectern, up front, at the side of the stage, and gave a verbal presentation about the life of the Apostle they were dressed as; and then, each would go behind the curtain which was stretched across the front of the stage. After the last Apostle had spoken and gone behind the curtain, the curtain was opened and there we were as a LIVING portrait of the painting by Leonardo da Vinci:
I can still hear the GASP of the audience! Yes, I played the part of “doubting Thomas.” All too often, I have dashed headlong into concepts with “zeal” but without “knowledge” as:
Romans 10:2 For I bear them record that they [even I?] have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
As I read my ongoing Bible chapters each morning, knowledge is what I am trying to glean. The following is my HARVEST for today:
When we think of “the spirit of the LORD,” what comes to mind? This may shock you, as it did me:
1 Samuel 19:9 And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, …
WHAT? ! “the evil spirit from the LORD” ??? !!! Yes. And, having read to this point, IN CONTEXT, we know that YHVH had anointed Saul and Saul was transformed:
1 Samuel 10:1-6 … [Samuel speaking] And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee [Saul], and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man [even a prophet!].
Reading on, we see that Saul violates The LORD until “the evil spirit from the LORD” comes upon Saul and we see the cause and effect. It’s just that simple; and, this echoes into the New Testament:
Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good WORD of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance [is impossible]; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put HIM to an open shame.
Hence, and for this reason:
Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing
to fall into the hands of The LIVING GOD.
Is it possible to descend without falling? Three passages of Scripture come to mind:
1 Samuel 19:12 So Michal let David down through a window: and he went, and fled, and escaped.
Joshua 2:15 Then she [Rahab] let them [the 2 Israeli spies in Jericho] down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall. [and they escaped]
2 Corinthians 11:33 And through a window in a basket was I [Apostle Paul] let down by the wall, and escaped his [the Governor of Damascus’] hands.
We’re talkin’ about ESCAPE here. It seems to be much more prevalent throughout the entire Holy Bible than the concept of a “pre-tribulation rapture;” and yet, the Darby/Scofield “pre-trib” rapture theory was taught to me in my youth and for decades. As they say, “It’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks.” :o/ Possibly I’m of the “dog” bent as the woman whom YESHUA Jesus called a “dog”:
Matthew 15:26-28 But HE answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then YESHUA Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
Was my reading, this morning, a TEST? As I am “vetting” the concept of The GREATER Exodus [not for the sake of doubting; but, for the sake of ZEAL WITH KNOWLEDGE! hence, as I was reading], the WORDs of our MESSIAH took center stage in my mind:
Matthew 6:24-25 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [G3126 wealth, avarice = extreme greed]. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
I love Monte Judah’s teaching about The GREATER Exodus and how The LORD will provide food and water AND THAT The LORD does NOT promise us that HE will provide us with shelter. S-C-R-E-E-C-H — STOP. Is “raiment” a “shelter/sukkah”? Maybe I won’t need to take my own tent… ya think? I pondered this. I really did :o/ Is tent/sukkah and “raiment” synonymous? I went to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance and found that this use of the WORD “raiment” is G1742 from the Greek word en’-doo-mah and means outer robe, clothing, garment (and when used in context of Matthew 6:24-25, it becomes somewhat clear that YESHUA Jesus is talking about Calvin Klein designer duds and not a SUKKAH). Case-in-point: When I read “Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for …”, I paused and prayed that The LORD would give me clear understanding of what I am to BELIEVE. Then I went back to my reading and VOILA! Answer to prayer: Verse 31 began opening my window of vision:
Matthew 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
“clothed” took me to the first Exodus, from Egypt, and the “en’-doo-mah outer robe, clothing, garment” of “Deuteronomy 29:5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.” This is speaking very specifically of personal attire and NOT TIPITENTS = SUKKAHS!
Yepper — I (we?) are being tested; however, IT IS AN OPEN BOOK TEST! If only we would open the BOOK and read it all!! Because:
Matthew 6:32-34 (For after all these things [designer duds, gourmet food, and hi-dollar vino] do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
“evil thereof”? “Second verse same as the first”
1 Samuel 19:9 And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, …
And all who do NOT obey The LORD’s Instructions for LIFE = TORAH are missing the boat, that The LORD’s forgiveness is contingent on:
Matthew 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
This is either a BIG PILL TO SWALLOW or an all-day-lollipop upon which to savor the flavor ETERNALLY!!! Why? Now is the time to review for This “OPEN BOOK TEST” which will very likely take some of us into a camp of The GREATER Exodus, sOOn, and how the “Tribulation SAINTS” will survive — is contingent on this all-day-lollipop :o))) Thank you, Lion & Lamb Ministries for your teachings. ABBA’s WORD is more than candy-on-a-stick, it is STEAK & TATERS for our eternal SPIRITS!!! And:
Just last night, with the THREE AND A HALF hour partial lunar eclipse, in LIGHT of Genesis 1:14, Isaiah 46:10 & Revelation 1:3 — all I saw was the points of the moon faciing NORTH. Is this a sign/signal about prophecy declared FROM THE BEGINNING??? Little remaining time is of the essence, while:

First Samuel 17 Matthew 4
Hollywood cowboy & Indian movies would have us believe that Native Americans hold up one hand and say, “How.” Native Americans are much smarter than that. Possibly you have heard about the Chief who had an incredible memory. It is said that an east coast government official went west and met this Chief with amazing memory. The official asked the Chief, “What do you eat for breakfast?” The Chief replied, “Eggs.” The official returned to Washington D.C. and after more than a decade, the official decided to go west again; and lo and behold, the official saw this same Chief (after all those years) and the official held up his hand and said, “How” and the Chief replied, “Scrambled.”
When they hold up their hand, the reason is more intelligently thought to be for finger count — see — I have 5 fingers. HOW many do you have? SIX finger GIANTS were in these United States and there are ancient stone wall picture carvings of 6 toes, 6 fingers as well as smaller pictures of 5 toes and 5 fingers:
Tom Horn, the late Cris Putnam, the late Chuck Missler, Timothy Alberino, Steve Quayle, et al provide amazing information about the Nephilim GIANTS on this American continent, and WHY the Native Americans from the Four Corners area, especially the “cliff dwellings,” evacuated that area VERY RAPIDLY. What does this have to do with GOLIATH in First Samuel 17? The valley of Elah, where David slew GOLIATH, is in Israel, against the West Bank of the Philistines (current day Palestinians) — where there is NOT a mountain high enough to see Mesa Verde, Colorado; and yet, we read:
Matthew 4:8 Again [in Israel], the devil taketh HIM YESHUA up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth HIM all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
This one verse is a TREASURE CHEST of information! In the mid 1970s, I went spelunking in “Horsethief Cave” in the Big Horn Mountain of Wyoming:
When I went “INTO” that “MOUNTAIN” the darkness was the absolute ABSENCE of light and I literally could not see my hand in front of my face! (without, of course, artificial light) Much less could I see the other side of this Earth! When Matthew 4:8 says “into [not atop, but INTO] an exceeding high mountain,” this is speaking of another realm, not our normal 3 dimensional Mt Everest, Pike’s Peak, BIG HORN, etc. but “mountain” means to rise above, take away, see Strong’s G3735 & G3733 “as a bird rising in the air.” The “air”? YES! The evil one tempting YESHUA is:
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the “AIR”, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
The “mountain” INTO which hasatan took YESHUA is that spiritual realm of DISOBEDIENCE!! and our MESSIAH shows us HOW to respond by quoting TORAH all 3 times:
Matthew 4:4 But HE answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
HE is quoting (as we should)
Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna [the BREAD of LIFE from Heaven], which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that HE might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
Again, the second time:
Matthew 4:7 YESHUA Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Again, the second time, HE is quoting (as we should)
Deuteronomy 6:16 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted HIM in Massah.
And again, the THIRD TIME:
Matthew 4:10 Then saith YESHUA Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and HIM only shalt thou serve.
And again, the THIRD TIME, HE is quoting (as we should)
Deuteronomy 6:13 Thou shalt fear [H3372 reverence (worship)] the LORD thy God, and serve HIM, and shalt swear by HIS name.
Deuteronomy 6:14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
Deuteronomy 6:15 (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
Deuteronomy 6:16 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
Deuteronomy 6:17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and HIS testimonies, and HIS statutes, which HE hath commanded thee.
Deuteronomy 6:18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers,
Deuteronomy 6:19 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath spoken.
This spiritual battle field is exactly what our Apostle Paul is telling us about in Ephesians, especially chapter 6. David is ON this battle field, against a SIX toed, SIX fingered GIANT and Samuel’s SECOND REMINDER says:
SECOND Samuel 21:20 And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant [GOLIATH, who is now DEAD, right?].
2 Samuel 21:21 And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea the brother of David [we’re in the same venue next generation as when David slew GOLIATH; but now, David’s nephew takes courage in The LORD and] slew him [GOLIATH’s son? I tend to think so].
2 Samuel 21:22 [GOLIATH and] These four [account for the FIVE smooth stones David put in his shepherd’s pouch, right? and these 4] were born to the giant [GOLIATH being “THE GIANT” which is most HIStorical, right?] in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants [could it be that David’s “servants” are now his older brothers and their sons; in the same LIGHT as Joseph’s older brothers, who originally scorned Joseph but later, with their sons, bowed to Joseph? Again, I think so :o))].
what’s all this got to do with us, TODAY?
As I ponder the concept of The GREATER Exodus, OUR journey to The PROMISED LAND from ALL nations around the globe — “HOW” do we prepare? What INTEL is The WORD of GOD giving us? Let’s review:
David did not have a sword, spear, shield, nor bread; and yet because there was “A CAUSE!”, David slew the GIANT with the humble necessities of a shepherd, including AND ESPECIALLY reverence for The ALMIGHTY GOD of Israel!!!
David did not invent a new weapon of war. NO. David was valiant in the teachings of Moses. YESHUA did not invent a new weapon of war. NO. YESHUA was valiant in the teachings of Moses. What’s our excuse? Matthew 26:52 “Then said YESHUA Jesus unto him [Peter, with one of the two metal blades in Luke 22:38 when YESHUA said something like That WILL BE ENOUGH OF THAT! because HE was speaking of The SWORD of The SPIRIT, The TORAH!], Put up again thy sword [metal blade] into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” That which is good enough for Moses, David, and YESHUA is good enough for me. How about you?
HOW… Good Buddy :o)))

You will learn what the majority of the bible is truly all about as the mystery of the gospel is revealed through the scriptures and pieced together by Paul's insight. This teaching will forever change your understanding of almost everything you thought you knew about the Bible.)
Walking in the Spirit (If you have ever wondered just what it means to walk in the Spirit, then this teaching may be just what your looking for. Join us as we turn to the Scriptures in looking for the biblical definition of this topic.)
The Church: His Model (Few know that the Bible details the intended structure for the Body of the Messiah. Even fewer might realize that our Lord really cares how we choose to organize ourselves. Certainly a sensitive topic, this teaching presents a conclusion far different than the norm. We pray it offers much to consider, and only brings us closer to our Father.)
The Church: His Model - FAQ (To compliment our teaching “The Church: His Model” we have released a Frequently Asked Questions follow up to assist in offering additional clarity on this complicated and controversial subject. In this presentation we are going to respond to a large number of questions surrounding this topic that we did not get covered in the main teaching. Some of these questions include: *Does the Moses Model work? *Are you saying that there are no authorities? *Do you believe there is anyone over the head of the husband? *What about Paul appointing elders? Does this mean Paul had more authority? *What about Hebrews 13:7 and 13:17? *What is the Hebraic difference in the usage of elder, shepherd, or pastor? *How did Moses set up his elders? Before you proceed with the rest of this teaching, we ask that you watch the teaching titled, “The Church: His Model” first.)
The Apocalypse Of Ezra The Scribe: The Globalist's Removed This From The Bible For A Reason (This Book was a part of the Biblical Canon up until relatively recently, however it was removed because the Globalist's did not want people to understand the wisdom it contains. Not only did this Old Testament Prophet predict the birth of Jesus Christ the Messiah and how the blessings God gave to Israel would be transferred to a new people, but it also details what we are facing right now. As we are the generation who is living through the "End Times" it is of the utmost importance for Christians to rediscover the truth that has been hidden from them by the Luciferian Elite. NOTE: click HERE for the pdf version of this book.)
The Book of Enoch - End Time Prophecy From Before The Flood (The book of Enoch is an ancient book which has been proven to date back to at least the time before Christ, although I personally believe that it legitimately originates from a time before the flood. The Ethiopian Amharic Bible includes it, and fragments of the book of Enoch were also discovered with the Dead Sea Scrolls in Qumran. The Book of Enoch was not written for ancient times, it states right in the beginning that it was written for "a far off generation". It was written for NOW.

In part three we skimmed the surface as to the defining of the weak and the strong. Romans 14 is always used by modern scholarship to show that Sha’ul [Paul] is changing God's instructions, with His divine permission of course. Why is it that when the New Testament mentions eating, drinking or observance of days, that we automatically ASSUME that this is referring to the kashrut laws or the Sabbath? Sha’ul is writing this epistle to the gentiles in Rome! These are also new believers in the Lord. We have already seen how new ignorant (without knowledge) believers are to be handled in Acts chapter 15. The Apostles concluded that new believers were to abstain from pagan activities and go to synagogue every week to learn the word from Moses, and that the "Jewish" believers were to abstain from bombarding them with regulations they were not ready to handle. They also condemned the "Jewish" believers who still did not understand that redemption (the new birth) was not faith plus circumcision, or faith plus obedience to Torah.
Romans chapter 14 follows Sha’ul's instructions about service to God in chapter 12 and 13. Our bodies are to be a "living sacrifice, HOLY and acceptable unto God..." He explains how they all have different ministries in the body. In 12:9 he teaches that they are to abhor that which is evil and cling to that which is good. It is Torah that defines what is evil and what is good. He exhorts these new Roman believers to be subject to their rulers and do that which is good in chapter 13. In 13:8-10 Sha’ul defines loving thy neighbor, as Yochanan (John) also defines love in his first epistle. "Owe no man any thing, but to love one another; for he that loves another has fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly COMPREHENDED in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Love works no ill to its neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law."
The word "comprehended" is from the Greek word anakephalaiomai. Say that five times real fast! This word means to sum up or to gather. It is also used in Ephesians 1:10 and translated there as to "gather together in one". Sha’ul, being a Jew and most knowledgable in the Scriptures, is teaching these new believers what the command to love thy neighbor as thyself means. It means not to covet his neigbhors things or wife, or to steal from him or murder him, etc. Yeshua also explains this when He answers the scribes about the two great commandments. He SUMS UP the commandments in the Old Testament in the two commandments to love God and to love your neighbor as yourself. He is not replacing all the commandments but GATHERING them up. This was a common understanding in Hebrew thought and would have been required knowledge for any "Messiah" candidate.
In Romans 14 we come to the "weak in the faith". Sha’ul is about to give instructions concerning the weak in the faith, who were defined in the previous lesson. He begins:
"Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. For one believes that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eats herbs. Let not him that eats despise him that eats not: and let not him who eats not judge him that eats; for God hath received him."
The context is clear, Sha’ul is addressing how to receive the weak in the faith. Right here is where modern scholarship makes it's first faulty assumption. They ASSUME that Sha’ul is contrasting the STRONG in the faith with the WEAK in the faith. There is no mention whatsoever to the strong in the faith, only the weak in the faith. In verse 2 a comma is inserted in the text which gives the appearance of this contrast, but the text, I believe, does not call for this contrast, (i.e. the strong in the faith verses the weak), but rather the weak verses the weak. Sha’ul is not comparing himself, a Torah observant Jewish believer, to the new gentile believers, but rather addressing the problems that weak brothers are experiencing among themselves. Back to the comma. Verse 2 can read, and should read according to the ongoing context:
"For one believes that he may eat all things; another who is weak, eats herbs."
This flows with the context of dealing with weak brothers. Sha’ul does not personally place himself in the context until verse 14. Here he says "I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Yeshua, that nothing is unclean of itself; but to him that esteems anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean."
Then he goes on to say in verse 15 that if a brother be grieved with your FOOD, now walkest thou not in love. Destroy not him with your FOOD, for whom the Messiah died. This is the exact same conversation that Sha’ul had with the new believers in Corinth in chapter 10. This is in reference to believers eating FOOD sacrificed to idols, and that this FOOD is not defiled, for idols are nothing. But Sha’ul's conclusion is the same. If the immature believer esteems this as unclean then the mature brother needs to understand this and not offend a new believer with FOOD. Then Sha’ul goes on to say that the kingdom of God is not FOOD and drink but, righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Ruach HaQodesh [Spirit The Holy or Holy Spirit].
I thought I would make a few more comments about this portion of Scripture, for it is misapplied texts such as this that I believe is responsible for much misery, disease, depression and moral corruption in the "church". It seems to be a Pavlov's dog thing to apply the food mentioned in verses two and three, and the word "day" in verses five and six, to the elimination of food instructions and the Sabbath. As I said before, Sha’ul had just finished instructing them to be holy and righteous, even in the midst of the pagan culture they were surrounded with. The Greek/Roman culture was packed full of "special days" and observances. The first day of the week "Sun-day" was elevated above the rest as the weekly worship of Isis, the "sun" goddess. Meats or FOODS were still being offered to her and sold in the market places. The new believers were accustomed to multiple gods and idol worship. These observances were common, everyday occurrences, and the principle religious activity of their relatives, neighbors and co-workers. Special days of the year were part of their lifestyle. Everybody did it! So it is in error, to conclude that Sha’ul is speaking of the dietary laws or the Sabbath in this chapter. The context seems to teach that these weaker brothers were squabbling among themselves over certain issues. Some, in their new found faith, were eating whatever FOOD they wanted and were being judged by those who were still eating only herbs. Abstaining from animal meat as a means of spiritual enlightenment was common in this culture (see 1 Timothy 4:3). Some were regarding certain days as above others and some were not. There is no reference to the Sabbath here for these people were not observers of the seventh day. When you combine these verses with all that Sha’ul teaches and the book of Acts, I believe that Sha’ul is addressing an attitude toward weak brethern. It would seem natural that at some time in the future these "weak" brothers will grow, mature, and become strong in the faith, and no longer be subject to the attitudes concerning a weak brother. Neither Yeshua nor Sha’ul would expect the weak in the faith to remain weak in the faith, but in the context of Acts 15, to grow through the teaching of the Word. I would think that it would be beyond any serious student of the word to conclude that God would suddenly render irrelevant, something previously precious in His sight. The Sabbath is not referred to as a day "above" the others, but rather the capstone or conclusion of the week. God designed it to be a picture of what it means to rest in Him. As Yeshua said, this day is made for us, not us for it. We will do an in depth teaching on the Shabbat at a later time.
I have spent a considerable amount of time addressing the common Scriptures used to teach that God's instructions are not for us. I feel it is imperative to deal with these issues first. Whenever the issue of feasts, the Sabbath, or food is concerned, these flags always come up first. Many Christians desiring to really follow the Lord will be quoting these New Testament verses. These scriptures are terribly out of context, and are an excellent example of giant paradigm shifts in thinking. Without knowledge of the culture of the people who wrote these things, every kind of abhorant behavior can be justified. Every kind of lifestyle can be rationalized. "Well, as long as you do it unto the Lord". This teaching breaks the heart of God, and modern "Christian" doctrine is destroying this country.

"Then YaHoVeH said, 'Let us make humankind in our image, in the likeness of ourselves; and let them rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the animals, and over all the earth, and over every crawling creature that crawls on the earth'. So YaHoVeH created humankind in his own image; in the image of YaHoVeH he created him: male and female he created them." Genesis 1:26-27
"Then YaHoVeH formed adam of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living nephesh." Genesis 2:7
YaHoVeH doesn't make mistakes. So, when YaHoVeH (click on highlighted words to view content) chose to use the Hebrew language to reveal Himself, it wasn't an accident. The Hebrew language is the perfect vehicle to communicate what YaHoVeH wants to share about Himself and His creation. What does this mean to us? It means that what YaHoVeH says in Hebrew is usually much deeper than we initially observe. Hebrew fulfills a role that no other language can because it can be understood as both a picture language and a phonetic language. Our contemporary translations are based on the phonetic aspect of Hebrew, not the pictographs. Sometimes we need to look to the pictures to see what the language communicates. That leads us to ask a question about some crucial words for "man" and "woman." Words mean things and what is found in these words is truly amazing. The religious tradition of man would seek to re-write history in order to uphold and to fit into its own artificial paradigm what it wants us to believe. The human race is not one - as much as that humanistic approach would like you to think it is. YaHoVeH is the God of Israel - not of mankind (see the Whose Word Is It?). The story of the creation of Adam in Genesis 2 is NOT the story of the general creation of mankind. That general creation took place in Genesis 1 where we are given an "overview" of the creation of the heavens and the earth where "in the beginning" YaHoVeH created "humankind" - many and in general, male and female (see One Covenant - A History for a more detailed explanation). We know this by looking at the original Hebrew words used to describe each of the actions mentioned.
The Christian tradition of men that has been handed down to us as triune theology (Mark 7:13) has been superimposed upon the verse in Genesis 1:26 above that says, "...let US make man in OUR image" as evidence of the existence of Yeshua "from the beginning" to support the notion of a triune god. There just had to be more than one being present at the time those words were spoken to be able to use those words in this manner - right? Well, not exactly. The way the verse is actually written says something more, "And YaHoVeH said, Let us make man in our image; according to our likeness". It is important that all of the text be included when searching for the Truth in the words. When a portion of scripture is pulled out of context and applied to what we have already made up our mind to about its meaning - it causes a serious problem trying to understand the original intent of the words. Words mean things. A closer look at the meaning of these words will supply us with a solid foundation from which to proceed. De'mut (the Hebrew word translated "likeness") is a feminine noun. Tselem (the Hebrew word translated "image") is a masculine noun. A quick look through other places of this usage in the Hebrew text supports the idea that the Essence of YaHoVeH incorporates both masculine (image) and feminine (likeness) characteristics. These words are not speaking of two separate entities, they are speaking of one entity, YaHoVeH, Who captures the characteristics of both genders in a single entity. It is only because of the replacement doctrine of the "Christian" religion that a dual Greek god theology is overlaid onto these Hebrew words, thus, changing their meaning. The evidence of a single entity is borne out in the subsequent verse 27 which says, "So YaHoVeH created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them". Notice the personal pronouns in Genesis 1:27 ("His" and "He") are all SINGULAR, whereas in Genesis 1:26 they are all plural ("Us" and "Our"). In Genesis 1:27 only one individual is actually doing the creating - YaHoVeH!

"Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My Covenant (commandments), then you shall be MY OWN POSSESSION among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." Exodus 19:5-6
"And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF YaHoVeH." Ephesians 2:17-19
"Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on Him YaHoVeH the Father HAS SET HIS SEAL." John 6:27
This series of articles on the Kinsman Redeemer are probably the most significant of any in understanding the purpose of haMashiach (Hebrew for "the Messiah"). Those having bought into the traditional religious portrayal of Who the Son Is will find this information difficult to comprehend without a paradigm shift in approach to scripture. That tradition (click on the highlighted words to view scripture verses) is the only thing Yeshua ever pointed to that could nullify the Word of YaHoVeH (with emphasis on verse one). Most people read scripture as though it was written yesterday just for them through the lens of current culture without comprehending that all of the words in their bible were written by Hebrews from a Hebrew perspective formed out of a Hebrew mindset that was influenced by Hebrew culture and were addressed primarily to a Hebrew audience which understood the nuances of the Hebrew language. It is only when we set aside these blinders of tradition that we find these words take on a context different from those of our contemporary culture. Consequently, it is important to understand, from a scriptural perspective, what the atonement inherent in the celebration of the feast of Pesach (re-named Passover) actually was in order to restore the inheritance of the Breath of Life that was released through the resurrection of Yeshua, the Kinsman Redeemer of Israel, for those who would become part of YaHoVeH's family in manifesting the Words of His Father in the same manner of Life He exampled before us.
From the beginning with Adam and Eve in gan edan (Hebrew for the garden of delight), the Plan and Purpose of YaHoVeH has been to have a people that would show forth His Glory. His Desire is for a family through whom the Glory of YaHoVeH, the Essence of His Nature and Character, would be manifested to the rest of mankind - a Light to the Nations, that those nations would desire to come and to enter into His Family as well. In YaHoVeH is LIFE and that LIFE was the Light of men. Adam was the first Hebrew son of the Hebrew family of YaHoVeH fashioned in the image of His Glory - the first to be set apart (the meaning of the Hebrew word for holy - kadowsh), from the rest of mankind existing at the time. That there were other people on the planet when Adam was formed is evidenced in several ways but, primarily, with the mark of protection placed on Cain that he not be killed by others and that he took a wife from the land of Nod - outside of the land of Eden before Adam and Eve had given birth to other sons and daughters as recorded in Genesis 5. The Hebrew word for "mark" is 'owth and actually means "sign (token) or seal". Thus, the verse in Genesis 4:15 should be more accurately translated, "...and YaHoVeH appointed to Cain a sign or seal..." The record does not say that this sign was placed on Cain's person in any way. The "sign" likely consisted of YaHoVeH's solemn decree itself, known and observed by others throughout the world (compare verse 24 where that decree is referred to by Lamech). Whatever the seal was, it was obviously distinguishable enough for assurance that no person would be allowed to slay him. Just as the rainbow was a sign given to Noah, this sign was there to protect Cain - not curse him. The "curse" resulting from the slaying of his brother was Cain's inability to cultivate crops and thus was forced to lead a nomadic life (Genesis 4:12),

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).

GREAT DELUSION IS COMING… And New Report Says Einstein Studied Roswell Crash UFO & Corpses (ALBERT Einstein was given a guided tour of a flying saucer after it crashed at Roswell, it has been claimed. The iconic physicist – famed for his E = mc2 formula on mass and energy – also got to see an alien autopsy, according to his former assistant. Dr Shirley Wright said she accompanied him on the top-secret trip to the desert in New Mexico, US. She detailed what they saw in a series of tape recordings made shortly before her death in 2015, and only made public now. Dr Wright said the alien craft – which reportedly crashed in July 1947 – appeared damaged on one side. She added: “It was disc shaped, sort of concave. Its size stood up to one fourth of the hangar floor. The body of the ship was what I would call today a rather reflective material but when you got up close to it, it was rather dull. They were very curious about what the materials were.” The spaceship was surrounded by guards, photographers and specialists who were studying it, she claimed. Einstein studied the UFO’s “propulsion system” and “He was not disturbed at all by seeing the actual evidence…)

THOUGH YOU MAKE YOUR NEST AMONG THE STARS, FROM THENCE WILL I BRING THEE DOWN (Obadiah 1:4): Russia ‘Conducts Anti-Satellite Weapons Test Forcing ISS Crew To Take Shelter From Debris,’ Space Command Reveals
November 11, 2021
Without a doubt, Star Trek has been one of the most influential entertainment franchises in history. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, and others are iconic characters recognized around the world. Oddly enough, though, through the series creator Gene Roddenberry, the starship Enterprise is linked to CIA mind-control experiments, a group of “aliens” who claim to be the creators of humanity, and—here we go again—the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Let’s back up to World War 2. During the war, Andrija Puharich, the son of immigrants from the Balkans, attended Northwestern University outside Chicago, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1942 and his M.D. in 1947. Through an invitation from a well-off family friend, who’d married into the Borden dairy family, Puharich found himself in Maine in early 1948, where he established a research institute to pursue his interest in parapsychology, the Round Table Foundation of Electrobiology, usually shortened to the Round Table.[i]
An early member of the Puharich Round Table was Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World and The Doors of Perception, a book about his experiences with mescaline (and the book that inspired rock singer Jim Morrison to name his band The Doors). Puharich financed his research with gifts from donors, one of whom was Henry Wallace, who’d been vice president under Franklin D. Roosevelt. Wallace, a 32nd-degree Freemason, persuaded Roosevelt to add the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States—the pyramid and the all-seeing eye—to the dollar bill.[ii]
This series isn’t long enough to hold a full account of what Puharich was up to for the U.S. Army in the 1950s,[iii] but the upshot is that he was apparently researching parapsychology and chemical substances that might stimulate the human mind to reach into realities beyond those we can normally perceive with our natural senses. And at one of his gatherings in Maine, on New Year’s Eve in 1952, Puharich and his Round Table, working with a Hindu channeler named Dr. D. G. Vinod, conducted a seance that apparently made contact with something calling itself The Nine.[iv] Thus began a truly breathtaking chapter in America’s mostly hidden programs that searched for ways to weaponize the occult.
Some months later, on June 27, 1953, the night of the full moon, Puharich gathered around him what was to be a core group of the Round Table Foundation for another session with Vinod. The membership of this group of nine members—á la The Nine—is illuminating. Henry Jackson, Georgia Jackson, Alice Bouverie, Marcella Du Pont, Carl Betz, Vonnie Beck, Arthur Young, Ruth Young, and Andrija Puharich. Dr. Vinod acted as the medium.
Imagine the Fellowship of the Ring, with government funding and a security classification that was, well, “cosmic.”[v]
This group included old money—very old money. The Du Pont name is obvious, but some of the others were no less prominent. Alice Bouverie was an Astor—a descendent of John Jacob Astor and the daughter of Col. John Jacob Astor IV, who built the Astoria Hotel and went down with the Titanic. Arthur Young was the designer of the Bell helicopter; his wife had been born Ruth Forbes. Yes, that Forbes.

Ancient religions and modern science fiction are not the only factors influencing the movement for official disclosure. Not surprisingly, we see a great deal of movement through politics. In recent history, possibly even more than any other time, the discussion has become mainstream among presidential candidates and political circles of all kinds.
Many strange and unexpected events occurred during the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016. Secret recordings were released. Emails were deleted. Insults and rumors were thrown around by all. Even more, the term “Wikileaks” became a commonly used word across the country.
The website wikileaks.org became the central hub to release hacked emails belonging to members of the Democratic party. These emails covered a wide variety of topics and were examined and scrutinized on a near-daily basis. Most of the more popular emails discussed everything from political strategies to personal issues to even unfavorable feelings of certain Democrats toward Hillary Clinton. Through Wikileaks, average Americans were able to get hold of these emails, which led to one of the most infamous scandal allegations of all time: #Pizzagate.
There were others emails, however, that flew a bit more below the radar. Some researchers deemed them too crazy to deal with. Others took them incredibly seriously, yet did not have a large outlet such as news media at their disposal. These were the ETI emails concerning John Podesta, the official disclosure of the government’s UFO documents, and the push for an admission from the U.S. government of the legitimacy of the UFO phenomenon.
Who Is John Podesta?
John Podesta, a self-identified Catholic who works closely with Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United, is the former chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. Prior to that, he served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and counselor to President Barack Obama. Podesta is an honorary patron of the University Philosophical Society (aka “The Phil”). He also was the U.S. representative to the U.N. High-Level Panel in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.[i] This is a process led by the United Nations to define the future global development framework that will succeed the current Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs contain eight globally agreed-upon goals in specific areas:
Empowerment of women
Child and maternal health
Reducing HIV/AIDS and communicable diseases
Building a global partnership for development[ii]
In 2013, the High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda released a report entitled “A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies through Sustainable Development,” which describes a universal agenda to eradicate extreme poverty worldwide by 2030 and fulfill the promise of sustainable development.[iii] This report calls on the entire world to rally around a “New Global Partnership” offering hope and a specific role for every person in the world. In order to achieve this goal, the report calls for the post-2015 goals to drive five large transformative shifts:
Leave No One Behind: After 2015 we should move from reducing to ending extreme poverty, in all its forms. We should ensure that no person – regardless of ethnicity, gender, geography, disability, race or other status – is denied basic economic opportunities and human rights.
Put Sustainable Development at the Core: We have to integrate the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. We must act now to slow the alarming pace of climate change and environmental degradation, which pose unprecedented threats to humanity.
Transform Economies for Jobs and Inclusive Growth: A profound economic transformation can end extreme poverty and improve livelihoods, by harnessing innovation, technology, and the potential of business. More diversified economies, with equal opportunities for all, can drive social inclusion, especially for young people, and foster sustainable consumption and production patterns.
Build Peace and Effective, Open and Accountable Institutions for All: Freedom from conflict and violence is the most fundamental human entitlement, and the essential foundation for building peaceful and prosperous societies. At the same time, people the world over expect their governments to be honest, accountable, and responsive to their needs. We are calling for a fundamental shift – to recognize peace and good governance as a core element of well-being, not an optional extra.
Forge a New Global Partnership: A new spirit of solidarity, cooperation, and mutual accountability must underpin the post-2015 agenda. This new partnership should be based on a common understanding of our shared humanity, based on mutual respect and mutual benefit. It should be centered on people, including those affected by poverty and exclusion, women, youth, the aged, disabled persons, and indigenous peoples. It should include civil society organizations, multilateral institutions, local and national governments, the scientific and academic community, businesses, and private philanthropy.
On the surface, it would seem that official disclosure of UFO documents and knowledge would not be a bad thing. However, if official disclosure is ever achieved, through what worldview will it be filtered? Most likely, it will be interpreted through the worldview of whoever is closest to and most influential within the disclosure movement itself. There could come a day when the government provides its citizens with information, but interpreting the information is something different. For example, if microbial life is found on the surface of Mars, a Christian might interpret it to mean that God’s creation is more expansive than first thought. However, a believer in Ancient Astronaut Theory might interpret it as evidence showing that life on Earth came from outer space—specifically from aliens originating on another planet. These two interpretations are completely contrary to one another, yet...

Following our last entry, here is another email from Mitchell to Podesta showing that Mitchell and Mansfield share the same beliefs about ETI:[i]
Date: 2015-03-05 20:24
Subject: email from Edgar for John Podesta (℅ Eryn): meeting request
Now that you are no longer serving in the White House, I write to you and Eryn requesting our face to face meeting to discuss zero point energy and Disclosure.
Our Quantrek science intuitive has provided us with a few facts about our nonviolent contiguous universe ETI who promote PACIFISM among humans and with whom we work:
All true ETI do not inhabit this universe.
So-called ETIs inhabit this universe and are in fact just celestials. They are higher in rank then discarnate spirits, even those who are evolved, HOWEVER, THEY JUST MIRROR VIOLENCE ON EARTH, FEELING THREATENED BY CONTAMINATION OF THEIR ABODE.
Extrauinversal [sic] ETIs on the other hand have long ago evolved past violence, relying on spiritual intelligence to avert destruction.
The Phoenix Lights and other sightings have provided ample evidence that Earth has been visited by beings whose intention is purely peace and who have nonviolently hovered over Phoenix and other sites, waiting to be asked to help, when they could most easily have destroyed the city with their uses of consciousness. These sightings have been witnessed by thousands of people in Phoenix alone, including my colleague Terri Mansfield, who will accompany me on our meeting with you.
Please let me now [sic] three dates and times that would work for your schedule.

It seems that ETI admit to some resistance from celestials. Here is an email from Terri Mansfield on behalf of Edgar Mitchell (pic above) stating a difference between these two groups:
Date: 2015-04-30 18:13
Subject: email for John Podesta re talk with Edgar Mitchell cc: Eryn
I write on behalf of Dr. Mitchell to request your Skype talk with him ASAP regarding Disclosure and the difference between celestials in our own solar system and their restraint by those from the nonviolent contiguous universe.
Edgar recently closed Quantrek due to health reasons. His talk with you, John, is of great importance given the alternative of your not being aware of these key distinctions heralding either intergalactic warfare or peace.
It is also imperative that after your talk with Edgar, he then speak directly with President Obama via Skype for historical purposes, about the same issue, while the President is still in office.
John, Edgar has consulted on consciousness matters for American presidents in the past, has addressed the UN General Assembly twice. He is not in need of a personal experience, wishes only to serve.
Thank you and Eryn for letting me know dates and times for your availability so I can relay that to Edgar.

The exact distinction between ETI and celestials is still unclear. In a previous email, it was said that celestials exist in our universe. The context of this email narrows them down to existing in our solar system. After that, the topic is abandoned in order to ask again for a meeting on Mitchell’s behalf.

During a recent prayer conference call, the Lord took me into an open vision. I was above the continental US looking down upon the continent. It was dark, night-time. I saw many different prayer groups that were praying for Israel and for the US. Some groups met in person, some met over the phone. The dark places over the continent would suddenly “light up” as soon as they began to pray. I saw ladders under construction reaching heavenward. Rung by rung, the ladders were being built. Angels were being dispatched to build these ladders to heaven. Every prayer group had an open heaven over it and a ladder under construction. Some ladders were further along than others. I heard the Spirit of the Lord impress upon me the following instruction concerning the construction of the prayer ladders. “Go lower, go lower still. The more you repent, the more you humble yourselves, the more the ladder rungs go higher into the heavenlies. The Kingdom of God is upside down. Go low, repent, humble yourself and then I will lift you up. There is great authority granted upon those who will genuinely and thoroughly humble themselves and repent of personal and corporate sins.”

I was out doing yard work the other day. I began with the mowing. I found I had trouble getting the edge of the lawn because there were many overgrown lilac bush with branches low to the ground. I had already pruned these bushes back a week earlier, pruning back the limbs that were growing upward toward the power lines. I got out my pruning shears and began pruning back the branches low to the ground so mowing would be made easier. More and more branches began to pile up. Some were just dead, some were overgrown, and the pile of pruned limbs grew higher and higher. This thought came to my mind: “I thought I was all done with pruning! Look how much more still needed to be done!” Then the Holy Spirit began to speak to me. “There is a second pruning happening NOW with my remnant. How fruitful do you want to be?” I asked Him, “What do you mean, Father?”
