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 14. October 18th 2009
In this edition:
●To judge or not to judge
Principles of judgement
"Don't judge, don't you know the Bible says don't judge" How many times have you heard that?
The tragic issue here is that you can be very sure that those who say this don't know anything at all about the Bible and are in a very dangerous place of deception and rank ignorance. In fact they are preparing the way for the antichrist.
This really is a wonderful subject. It is clean and full of glory, holiness and righteousness.
Let's have a look now at what the Bible does say, what it doesn't say and the correct application. We'll also look at how the miss-application has ruined the world and will set the stage for coming cataclysmic judgements of God on this evil world.
If I've heard it once I've heard it a thousand times..."don't judge, just walk in love" The problem with this is that this is equated with tolerance, which is the last evil virtue of a collapsing society!
The verse that says "don't judge lest you be judged" uses the word judgement in the continuous present tense, which is only evident in the original Greek. In other words it is saying don't be a continuous nit-picker over every little thing.
I was sitting in a restaurant the other day and this group of women were sitting at a table next to mine. They were continuously judging. "Did you see what she was wearing, did hear what she said, how could she" and so they went on for an hour. This is what the verse is talking about.
The key for us in the area of judging can be found with our Messiah Himself. Jeshua / Jesus says in John 5:30 "I judge and My judgement is righteous because I seek not My own will." This is the key. If you are out there trying to prove others wrong and yourself right you are as guilty as the other. If you are putting others down all the time and exalting yourself you are wrong. But if you are standing for the truth of God, it's a different story. Judgement from a point of view of pride or self-elevation is wrong.
John 7:24 "Don't judge according to outward appearance, but judge with righteous judgement." In other words, don't worry about what she was wearing. righteous judgement involves standing up for God and his Word.
1 Corinthians 2:15 "He who is spiritual judges all things" This implies judging into many matters, but only by those who are spiritual. In other words a baby believer has no business getting involved in judgement.
The above two verses need no explanation, but it's worth saying that most of the modern church today has laid this aside. This is the reason the church is so divided and compromised today.
It is largely because there is no more judgement in the church that a lot of it has lost its calling. Much of the church now tolerates most worldly things that have in the past brought the judgement of God on the world and will again do so.
Romans 1:1,2 declares that God's judgement is "according to truth"
The principle of judgement is actually love in action. The children of Israel went through the Red Sea while the judgement of God closed in on Egyptian opposition. Judgement is punishment yes but it is love and grace in the sense that it creates purity and holiness. God uses judgement to save and bring victory to His own.
Judgement in the church:
The duty of the church is to keep itself lined up with truth and to set the truth-standard as a banner for all to see. A part of the church will keep the standard which is the Word of God and judge between right and wrong keeping itself pure.
As we move closer to the coming of our Lord and Saviour, the attacks on the church will intensify. "Truth will be cast down in the street" Isaiah 19:14.
1Corinthians 1:10 "Speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but be perfectly joined in the same mind and judgement"
1Peter 4:17 "Judgement is to begin in the house of God"
1 John 4:1 "Don't believe every spirit, but test the spirits"
A simple reading through the book of Acts shows clearly that much of the work of the early church leadership was to judge and keep error out.
It was the introduction of error that produced the dark ages.
Judgement and discernment are very closely associated and are desperately needed today. I encourage you to read edition no 11 which deals with Gods view, opinions and judgement on the church.
Judgement in line with truth destroys error and sin while bringing unity and maintaining the glory of God.
Error and sin is not corrected by discussion and argument, but by judgement according to truth.
Judgement on a individual level:
One of the most powerful and glorious factors of the believers life is that we have been judged. The cross has done its deadly work and created within us a pure clean new life in the spirit at the new birth. But our lives also have a soul realm which has to be renewed daily. Here judgement is our own responsibility. "Judge yourselves that you be not judged" This relates to our daily lives as we walk through this evil world. It relates to repentance of sin.
Today repentance from sin is not easy, simply because many believers don't even know what sin is. it has been so watered down and made so acceptable by spineless preachers. There is no standard or absolutes anymore. Everything is variable and relative in today's evil world.
I once got my 4x4 vehicle stuck in thick mud after a rain storm in a desert. We had to dig it out. I was covered in this thick stinking mud, which dried on my skin. There was no water around for 500kms. I felt dirty. In fact it affected my mood as well. Finally we made it to the camp site where a good shower cleaned everything off.
The feeling was incredible. I was clean, so I could now go on in peace! This simply illustrates what self judgement does. It cleans us spiritually, sets us right with God and lets us become a pure vessel of His glory.
Only people that live in darkness, live in the world peacefully. In the glory of God's light no one can live in sin. God brings beauty and joy and peace out of the ashes of judgement.
The cross brings a believer deliverance from the world the flesh and the demonic. Only an enormous fool goes into eternity trusting in himself
In fact the power of the cross enables you to break what you were unable to break or overcome. It brings deliverance and victory.
Judgement relating to the world:
Isaiah 26:9 "When His judgements are in the world, people will learn righteousness.
Hosea 4:1 "There is no truth, mercy or knowledge of God in the land" The rest of this portion of scripture lists the symptoms: "Swearing lying, killing, stealing, adultery, no restraint, bloodshed after bloodshed. The land mourns, authority is questioned...My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge"
God always judges sin. For believers this has already happened in the form of the cross and self judgement as we go on. For unbelievers there awaits the fearful Great White Throne judgement from which all unbelievers will be cast into hell. For the world at large, due its ever increasing sin, it is about to go into the most severe forms of judgements the world has ever seen. In the past God judged the world for its sin of homosexuality on a few occasions. He judged the world for its general wickedness on a few other occasions. He judged Israel for her rebellion on many occasions.
What is coming very soon will put all the above to shame.
One great purpose of judgement is to create an environment of holiness. So although judgement itself is a negative the outcome is positive and is in fact love in action.
Think of it like this. If we had no judicial system there would be anarchy. The sending of one bad criminal to jail purifies the environment a little. So the coming monumental judgements of God will purify the universe and fill it with the glory of God.
The presence of God is incompatible with sin and evil. You either go through the cross to purity, or into hell which, in the process purifies the world of all sin and evil.
The judgement of God on this world is about to begin. It will start with forerunners and intensify through the seven year tribulation period to the cataclysmic final conflict of the ages. Many in this time period will refuse to repent, blame God and continue in rebellion, resulting in ever increasing judgements, but an enormous number will repent and come to salvation in this time period.
It's worth bearing in mind that judgement produces great opportunities for the gospel. When God shakes everything that can be shaken, everything that people put their security in shakes and falls. This causes many to look to unshakable eternal security...The Kingdom of our Great God, Lord and Messiah.
For the believer, glory lies on the far side of the cross. The unbeliever is on this side of the cross and awaits a terrifying future judgement.
For additional study on the subject please read:
Eternal Judgement by Derek Prince
The Spirit of Judgement by Watchman Nee
In closing here is a composite relating to the two comings of our Lord. He came the first time as the Lamb of God, to be judged condemned and slaughtered in our place. He is coming again soon as King of the universe, the Lion of Judah to judge, condemn and purify the world of all the unsaved and all sin.
Kind regards and many blessings...Shalom and hang in there!
