Shabbat Shalom to all!
Let My son go!
God told Moses to tell Pharaoh to “Let My people,” referring to the children of Israel in Egypt. Pharaoh repeatedly refused. Finally, at the persuasion of ten plagues, he conceded and let them go, but then changed his mind and pursued the children of Israel who had already been supernaturally protected through the plagues. Now they were miraculously delivered as they went through the Red Sea, which closed in on the Egyptians and killed them. That’s the story everyone knows. But what about the full story?
Exodus 4:22-23 “You shall say to Pharoah, ‘thus says the Lord: Israel is My son, My firstborn. I say to you, ‘Let My son go, that he may serve Me. If you refuse, I will kill your firstborn.’’”
Pharaoh was in fact not holding Israel captive, but God’s son! He was preventing the full manifestation of Messiah in and through the Jews.
“Let My people go” = “Let My son go”.
Here we have an amazing prophecy, written many years before Messiah’s birth.
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child I loved him and out of Egypt I called My son.”
This verse refers to the original Exodus, but also to the infant Yeshua being “called” out of Egypt with Mary and Joseph after fleeing from Herod. Both Pharaoh and Herod were types of antichrist.
Understand that God equates the children of Israel – the Jews, with His Son – singular. This means that there is a vital identification of Israel with Messiah. It’s all wonderfully prophetic!
But there is also a hidden terror in this alliance. Those who come against Israel and those who obstruct Israel from her journey to the Promised Land, are coming against God and setting themselves up for the greatest ever judgments of all time – the tribulation - a sea of blood!
They are setting themselves up as enemies of God’s Son!
There is a most powerful modern application of “let my people go. / Let My son go.”
Here it is: ●Pharaoh = antichrist. ●Egypt = the world. ● Israel = Israel and the Jewish Messiah.
Not all Jews now are holy and Messiah-like by any stretch of the imagination. But there is a prophetic “down payment” for the salvation of a great many Jews in the end times. Many will come as returning prodigal sons. Besides, God says they are My son!
But have you wondered why God aligns and identifies His own Son with Israel? It is because His own Son, our Messiah was a perfect Jew! He kept the holy Torah. In so doing He identifies what sin is and holiness is.
Messiah was perfect and a similar holiness is coming to the Jews (not that anyone will be totally perfect this end of resurrection.)
Isaiah 4:2-4 “Those of Israel who have escaped and those who remain in Zion and Jerusalem, will be called holy, when the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the blood of Jerusalem, by the spirit of judgement and by the spirit of burning.”
Isaiah 60:21 “Your people (Israel) shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.”
Israel is the son of God. The Catholic church is the counterfeit son, the son of Babylon, with its multitudes of institutional sins, none, of which will be practised or sanctioned by the true Son of holiness, God’s Son.
The son of Babylon is also referred to as the daughter of Babylon and the great whore of Babylon. (Isaiah 47:1, Psalm 137:8, Revelation 17:1)
We as Christians are grafted into the tree of Israel, rooted in Messiah. We are part of the “commonwealth of Israel” – not the commonwealth of Rome!
Ministries with no heart for Israel do have a heart for a foreign god.
Image below: various Renaissance artists’ renditions of some of the apostles.
In these days you need to have your heart open to the full, undefiled, ancient truth, without any pagan or otherwise influences. You need to be clean and holy in doctrine as well as action and even thought.
Jeremiah 6:16 “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it. Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk in it.”
It is only the undefiled truth that will stand and produce the best fruits.
The disciples of old had to often contend for the truth, on many occasions giving their lives for their unflinching stand. Those who were double minded and mixed with the errors of Babylon and the occult, were the ones who fell away. The same is the story today! (John 6:66)
Many are “saved” by a cross-less god - a fun-filled, jolly father Xmas god, forever giving and demanding nothing, who in fact is “another Christ”, a foreign god a liar and deceiver.
Today Satan and his disciples want to remove Messiah in you. They want to remove and destroy the word of God in you and then they will spit you out like used bubble gum.
They want to strip Messiah out of Israel, but they can’t because God calls Israel My son! With Messiah removed from Israel, it would become a son of Babylon in a flash.
The wisdom of Babylon is the wisdom of the world, which is the wisdom of Satan and the wisdom of ultimate failure.
No one is truly wise without the knowledge of God. This knowledge of God is the input, understanding is the arrangement, and wisdom is the output, and it must all be orchestrated by the Spirit of God.
The outcome of the blessing of the Lord is revealed by Moses just before he died. Deuteronomy 28:10 “Then all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you.”
Let My people go – to Messiah. Let the Jewish Messiah go - to My people, Jew and Gentile, in these end times!
Edition 517: April 14th 2020.
The Departynge First!
These are the words of life!
I have shared on some of these things before, but it is so important, it must be more fully explained. As always an erroneous doctrinal belief knocks on to other doctrines as well. We are now at a point in time where these things are of major importance.
And yes that is how the “departynge” is spelt in old English!
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come, unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.
The original early Bibles were consistent in their translation of this verse as follows:
2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come, unless the departynge comes first...”
Note how dramatically “departynge” changes the entire meaning. Read the top verse and then the bottom rendition of it again.
Here are the early, original old English Bibles and their use of that verse. Note the consistency:
- Wycliffe Bible (1330), "departynge first"
2. Tyndale Bible (1525/26), "departynge first"
3. Coverdale Bible 1535), "departynge first"
4. Crammer Bible (1539), "departynge first"
5. Beeches Bible (1583), "departing first"
6. Beza Bible (1583), "departing first"
7. Geneva Bible (1608), "departing first" 8. King James Bible (1611) “falling away.”
The 1611 King James Bible, which many claim is the only inspired, totally accurate Bible, which is absolute hogwash, changed “departynge first, to “falling away” from the faith.
The “departynge (departure) is of the course the rapture of the church – how logical!
Note that the word “Day” is capitalised. This is a reference to the entire tribulation period, or if you like, the Second Coming.
“Departynge first” places the rapture before the tribulation period (Day of the Lord)
Bear in mind that you can’t have both opinions. The “falling away from the faith” is not the “departynge first”. It’s one or the other.
Number 8 (above) marked the introduction of error, which has permeated and predominated since then, fuelled by the knock-on effect of the error.
I know all the arguments in favour of “falling away from the faith”, but if any are true, I ask you then, how do you explain the consistency of “departure” in all the early Bibles?
If you are looking for the great falling away from the faith, as a sign, instead of the soon-coming rapture, you will obviously be looking in the wrong place, to say nothing of the contradiction to the verses speaking of a great end-time revival. (See the next edition!)
►I see quite a few reputable Bible teachers are now also teaching on this “departure” instead of “falling away from the faith.” That is just great!
In the types revealed in the feasts, we have now moved from Passover (the cross) to the resurrection. But bear in mind that Passover is also about Israel leaving Egypt (the world), which has enormous prophetic implications.
The group speak of herd mentality:
Many generations of church leaders and Bible teachers have been playing “blind man’s buff.” They have been following the blind man who says he can see, right into a tree.
Herd mentality, especially amongst blind, parrot pastors has joined Catholicism in replacing Passover with Easter. This destroys Bible prophecy albeit symbolically. The seven feasts, in their fulfilment, succinctly plot the major prophetic peaks of the ages.
The feats conceal and reveal the skeleton of all prophecy. Passover, the first of the feasts is the head of the skelton. All the Passover rejecting, Easter loving Christians have beheaded prophecy. No wonder they are running around like headless chickens.
This love of and receiving of paganism (Easter) is the very cause of most of those churches being ignorant of prophecy, with some exceptions.
There are so many churches that won’t touch or teach Bible prophecy, but they will venerate paganism and forever argue useless arguments in favour of their mixture of Babylon into the truth.
Okay, so now we see that the “falling away” is the rapture of the church. That leads to the obvious question, when will this occur?
Imminence is for the wicked:
So, if the departure of the church comes first, it is appropriate to address the error of imminence, which knocks on to other doctrines too.
The presumption behind imminence is that the Lord’s coming for the church at the rapture will occur without any preceding signs and could happen at any time, because “no one knows the time”.
There are numerous preceding signs and forerunners of the coming of the tribulation period. Obviously those signs would also be relevant to a pre-tribulation rapture.
The argument in favour of imminence is based largely on a verse misunderstood:
Matthew 24:36 “Of that day and hour no man knows...but as the days of Noah were so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.”
What people have done is presumed that this verse says “no one knows the time.”
1 Thessalonians 5:2 “You yourselves know that the day of the Lord, so comes as a thief in the night. When they (the world) say ‘peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them as labour pains...”
The thief in the night full of darkness will not know – it is a reference to the wicked.
1 Thessalonians 5:4 “But you brethren are not in darkness that this Day should overtake you as a thief...Let us not sleep as other do, but let us watch and be sober.”
Matthew 24:36-37 “As in the days of Noah, so also will it be at the coming of the Son of Man...They (the wicked) will be eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage...and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away.”
Matthew 24:48”But if the evil (wicked) servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming...the master will come on a day when he is not looking.”
If no one knows the time, the following verse is a real problem. How can you look for something that’s unknowable?
Titus 2:13 “Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour.”
The thief in the night is wicked and does not know. The believer is not in darkness and does know. It is the wicked servant who says no one knows!
The awakened believer is commanded to “know”, “watch,” “pray” and “look” for the appearing”.
Matthew 24:33 “You also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the very doors.”
The word “know” above is in the imperative tense, meaning it is a command, similar to a military command.
The problem with the doctrine of imminence is that it is always, extended to mean, “no one knows the time.” (So don’t bother trying.)
Yes, Acts 1:7 says, “It is not given to you (the disciples) to know times or seasons...” But this is talking to those particular disciples at that time and not to end-time believers generally.
1 John 2:18 “Little children it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even, may antichrist have come, by which we know it is the last hour.”
So, when will the departing take place? Regular readers know my view all too well. It will occur on a Feast of Trumpets, when all the other required signs are in place. But more exciting material on that, not shared before, in coming editions.
Today God’s shofar is sounding an alarm, and ringing bells of urgency. God’s menorah is shining its light on the cross of salvation and its resurrection power. Can you hear the sound, can you see the light? Can you feel and sense the power?
Births X 3:
Pregnancy always leads to birth-pangs. That’s where we are now.
■The church is pregnant with a glorious resurrection body. ■The world is pregnant with the coming antichrist. ■Israel is pregnant with the Millennium.
The resurrection body is coming before the tribulation, the antichrist is coming in the tribulation, the true Christ is coming at the end of the tribulation and the Millennium is coming after the tribulation.
Be thankful and full of praise that you have not been left out in the spiritual cold.
Covid-19 is a birth!
Covid-19 has birthed worldwide mass fear and confusion. Is it of God or of the devil? Confusion is not of God, but is of the devil. But God uses these events caused by the devil for His purposes.
This shaking is leading to repentance for many people. God uses the tests to see who are really His, and who His disciples are.
Bear in mind that this virus is a “birth” of worse things to come in the tribulation period.
►The shaking has started now, before the tribulation. The shaking is for the shakeable. The kingdom of God is unshakable.
The tragedy of the biblical Jews was that they “did not know the time of their visitation”. (Luke 19:44)Today, much of the church and the world do not know what’s going on. They do not know their time of visitation and required repentance.
Did President Trump “divide the land” and cause the virus? (Joel 3:2)
I believe some teachers, the left-over deceived, Revelation 12-sign teachers, and others are teaching and claiming repeatedly that the coronavirus in the US is a result of President Trump dividing the land of Israel, through the “Deal of the Century.”
That is absolutely NOT the case at all! Do not believe it. Dismiss it as short-sighted rubbish.
Daniel 11:39 “He (antichrist) shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god (Satan) which he shall acknowledge and advance its glory; and shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.”
Joel 3:2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat and I will enter into judgment with them there, on account of My people, My heritage Israel...They have also divided up My land.”
The condemned dividing of the land comes in the tribulation period. Both of these verses above clearly occur in the tribulation period.
If President Trump is responsible for dividing the land and the coronavirus is the result, then why did God not do the same when the land was divided many times before?
If the coronvirus is a result of President Trump dividing the land of Israel, why would God bring this virus on the whole world?
There is another side to dividing the land which most are not aware of because of their blinkers. It’s all about numbers. An undivided Israel would bring all the Palestinian territories refugees and exiles into one united land.
There are an estimated 14 million Palestinians who would instantly become part of Israel. That would make Israel an Islamic state overnight. Do you think God will allow that? You have to be mad in the head! Besides, that is not what the prophetic word reveals at all!
The best way to deal with this is to have separate, divided political entities with their own internal independence, as there is today. There is no other workable solution.
It was the children of Israel themselves who caused the land of Israel to be divided. In disobedience to God, they failed to drive out all the occupying people (Arabs). So now the best solution to prevent Israel from becoming fully Islamic is to create Palestinian territories of autonomy.
Here it is, and note the last sentence:
Numbers 33:50-55 Instructions for the conquest of Canaan: “Moses, speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their moulded images and demolish all their high places...but if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those who you let remain, shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.
So, the situation is a bit more complex than people think.
God is legally bound to operate within His own legal framework. You cannot be accused of, or held responsible for something you didn’t do. President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” is null and void, not being implemented. Except for a few issues that are very pro-Israel in the first place.
If anything, President Trump holds a “key of David” in his hands, and not the cause of the coronavirus! (See edition 509 “Beware the key of David.”)
What comes next?
In the midst of plagues, Passover (not Easter) led to the Exodus of the children of Israel, as Pharaoh “let them go.” That led to war as the Egyptian army then changed their mind and pursued them. That led to the supernatural defeat of the Egyptians in the Red Sea. That led Israel to the Promised Land.
Moses commanded Pharaoh to “Let my people go.” He finally did, which is a type of Israel becoming a nation in 1948, even sanctioned by the League of Nations which became the UN. This fulfilled Isaiah 66:8.
Yes, Pharaoh changed his mind and pursued the Jews, right into God’s trap – the Red Sea. This is a type of the UN changing its mind after Israel’s independence in 1948 and becoming a staunch enemy of Israel, pursuing her on every front.
If the UN could only see that their feet are already wet in the modern Red Sea of blood that will befall them in the tribulation period!
So what is next? It is war as Israel enters the God-parted Red Sea, prepared for her as she approaches the God ordained Promised Land of salvation.
At the same time, modern unsaved man is already teetering like the tower, about to fail and fall.
There is a reason why God said the city of Babylon (the world-system), and the tower, will never rise again! The reason is because it was man’s sin-filled attempt to create peace and reach God. That is a type of today’s world trying to reach God with sin intact.
Jeremiah 50:39 “...It (Babylon) shall be inhabited no more forever...”
Jeremiah 51:26 “They shall not take from you (Babylon) one stone for a foundation, but you shall be desolate forever, says the Lord.”
End-time Babylon is the world-system and not the original, cursed and doomed city in Iraq, which will never rise again according to these prophetic verses above.
But end-time Babylon the Great, which is the world, will rise to meet its destruction even as it is trying to do so now.
Isaiah 13:11,20 “I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity...It (Babylon) will never be inhabited, nor will it be settle in from generation to generation, nor will the Arab pitch tents there, nor the shepherds bring their sheep there.”
The tower is about to fall again, it is doomed; it like a thief in the night does not know the hour of its visitation. It – Get out of the way!
In the midst of all these things, the end of our salvation draws nigh. Can you say, “I love you Lord with all my heart and being?” He is pure, pristine, true and exalted, like a glimmering, shining diamond forever, full of light and love.
Our Lord has risen; we will also rise soon to glory. This truth of is so exciting, invigorating and bears witness in our hearts.
If He is risen and is alive – that has profound, consequences for you. It should stop you in your tracks and cause you to fall on your face before Him in total surrender – immediately.
Revelation knowledge, understanding and wisdom is life that leaps off the page, hits you in the heart, and changes you!
In these days of shaking you need to identify where your source of spiritual stability and value is, and treasure those spiritual gems – they are rare, which is why they are of value.
I lay down flat to take this picture of a cheetah in one of our game reserves and blended the tree in.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
