Bride of Christ

BRIDE OF CHRIST              

The last 28 pages is an in-depth examination of the book of Hosea, a clear and wonderful allegory of the relationship between the bride and Yahweh.

 

The “church” is NOT the bride of Christ.

Nowhere in scripture is this mentioned, neither does any verse have bride and church in it.

 

For clarity on who the bride is, a few things must be understood.

The bridegroom, of course is Yahshua Christ. Christ is of the race of Adam. The Hebrew word for Adam is awdawm. This is defined as: rosy, ruddy, to show blood in the face, able to blush, fair. The Bible is the book of the family descent of Adam (Gen 5:1). Adam was the first man of the species of awdawm which Yahweh personally planted His Spirit (DNA) into.

Genesis 1:26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

1:27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

1:28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

In Genesis 1, we see the creation (bara) of the species of awdawm.

Genesis 2:7  And Yahweh God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

In Genesis 2, we see Yahweh 'upgrading' an awdawm of the species with the DNA of the Spirit. The Hebrew texts differentiate between Adam the species and Adam the man.

'Breath' in verse 7 is neshamah (H5397). Divine inspiration, intellect, soul, spirit.

2:8  And Yahweh God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed.

Adam was put into the garden of Eden AFTER he received the DNA (breath) of life. Now Adam was clothed in Shekinah Glory.

The purpose of Adam was to re-establish what the serpent and his children and his angels profaned, defiled and mixed. To re-establish God's original creation. Today, scientists genetically modify our food, animals and medicine. People race mix with other peoples. Nothing new under the sun.

The spirit children of Adam were to remain separate and obedient, but intermixed with the children of Cain and became so disobedient that Yahweh cleansed the land with the flood to preserved the pure Adamic DNA and started over with Noah and his children. Following the line of Shem, we come to Abraham, who demonstrated his allegiance (faith) to Yahweh by believing in the promise that his children will be an innumerable multitude and the heirs of the kingdom, and that he willingly offered Isaac to Yahweh on the altar, which made Isaac Yahweh's anointed line. This is where the 'elect' and chosen people originate from. Esau despised his birthright and race, and married Canaanite women, thereby polluting the holy seed and disqualified his position as son. The descendants of Esau, then and today, are the Jews. They are NOT Israelites. The true Israelites are the Adamic (awdawm) children of Jacob/Israel. The descendants of the 12 sons of Israel make up the white nations in the world today. Pure Adamites.

Christ came from one of these sons, Judah. Queen Elizabeth II is a descendant of Judah, and she is not a Jew! Neither was Christ.

When you understand that Christ is an Adamic Israelite of the tribe of Judah, and a kinsman of all the children of Israel, and of Adam, you now understand that the bridegroom is of a particular race and the God of His people.

 

Now the identity of the bride should make sense. It can only be the children of Israel.

The wedding was when Yahweh took the Israelites by the hand out of Egypt and gave them the law at Mount Sinai. Our ancestors agreed, by oath and promise, to keep the commandments, statutes, ordinances and judgments. And more times than once!

 

As we will see, Yahweh is very clear about the law of marriage, and follows it Himself.

The divorce from the children of Israel began in 745 BC with the Assyrian invasion and deportation of the northern House of Israel and the fenced cities of the southern Kingdom of Judah. This was a prophesied punishment (7X) that was to last 2520 years, which takes us to 1776. The birth of America, which is also the prophesied regathering place of the tribes of Israel. Christianity exploded and America was blessed and became the greatest nation in history under God. Now we are a multicultural, race mixed, Babylonian society that in no way resembles Christianity.

 

When you understand that the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, German, Celtic, Nordic and European peoples are the true descendants of Jacob, and the Anointed seed of Israel, scripture will make so much more sense, because the Jews are NOT Israel, and the “churches” are teaching Judaism as if it were Christianity, which it is not.

 

The bride can only be the same race as the husband. From Genesis 1 we read 'kind after kind', 'whose seed is in itself'. Remain separate from the other races. Do not mix or intermarry. Be ye holy. Holy means set apart, dedicated, consecrated for a purpose. The seed of Isaac through Jacob is the holy seed. The Anointed seed of Israel. Christ is the Anointed King of Israel.

Only Israel was given the law, swore to follow it, broke it, was divorced and chastised for it, and will die by it, and only Israel can be redeemed from the penalty of it. Because of the promises Yahweh made to Abraham, His mercy overrides the law, and because by the law He had to die in order for us to be remarried to Him. Hence, Yahweh God come in the flesh as Yahshua the Anointed, to die, ending the old unfaithful marriage of Israel, and redeeming the repentant and conformed of Israel back to Himself through Christ.

Matthew 15:24  But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto Him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.

 

The scriptures are clear through plain words, parables, symbolism and allegories that Christ is the groom and the children of Jacob are the bride.

All the verses will demonstrate this, as the Bible is the book of the race of Adam.

 

 

HUSBAND

 

The laws about vows

Numbers 30:1  And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which Yahweh hath commanded.

 30:2  If a man vow a vow unto Yahweh, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

Matthew 5:33-35

33  Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto Yahweh thine oaths:

34  But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:

35  Nor by the earth; for it is His footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

 30:3  If a woman also vow a vow unto Yahweh, and bind herself by a bond, being in her father's house in her youth;

 30:4  And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.

Yahweh being the husband, the bride being Israel in her father's house (house of Jacob). Israel swore 4 times in scripture to bind themselves to Yahweh by His law. Both parties agreed.

This all goes for Yahweh too. Yahweh held up His end of the deal, but our ancestors cheated, as do we also.

 

Deuteronomy 22:22  If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt you put away evil from Israel.

 22:23  If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

 22:24  Then you shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and you shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so you shalt put away evil from among you.

 22:25  But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die:

 22:26  But unto the damsel you shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:

 22:27  For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.

This is symbolic of our people that tolerate unrighteousness in our society and “churches”, and don't speak up and stand for obedience and judgment. In order for the bride to be a faithful partner, we must demonstrate our allegiance (faith) to our husband. When we allow the abominations society has turned into, we become the damsel that does not cry when being taken advantage of. The damsel as well as the man will die.

Christ does not want a weak unfaithful bride.

 

Various laws

Deuteronomy 24:1  When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

Some uncleanness, as “indecency”, shameful exposure, or sexual behavior.

 24:2  And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.

The words may and wife are not in the original texts.

Septuagint: 24:4 (2)  And if she should go away and be married to another man;

 24:3  And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;

 24:4  Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yahweh: and you shalt not cause the land to sin, which Yahweh your God giveth you for an inheritance.

Jeremiah 3:1  They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to Me, saith Yahweh.

Verses 1-4 are about returning to her first husband. This would parallel Israel and Yahweh through Christ. The bride (Israel) and her husband (Christ). This is why Christ had to die. The bill of divorce (casting us off in punishment, Assyrian and Babylonian captivity) prevented Him from taking us back, under His own law. After He died, He now can take us back (2nd Advent). That is also why only Israel is the bride and not any of the other races. True Israel is the white race, as the definition of Adam states.

Yahweh follows His own laws. He was the first husband, the curses of disobedience got Israel divorced. Yahweh died as Yahshua, and now can marry an obedient bride at His 2nd coming.

 

The Book of Ruth is an allegory of the bride and the groom.

Ruth represents the children of Israel and Boaz represents Christ.

SHORT AND SWEET SYMBOLISM COMPARISON

Ruth 1:1 The famine in this verse can be viewed as the End Time “famine” of word.

Ruth 1:2-5 Elimelech and Naomi represent Abraham and Sarah, who are dead to the Judeo-Christians. The Judeos reject the Old Testament.

Ruth 1:6-13  Here, Naomi represents today’s irreligious Caucasians, who have totally abandoned Christianity, along with their Covenant relationship to Yahshua. To them, Christianity is dead.

Ruth 1:14-22 But Ruth will have none of it. She is determined to go back to Bethlehem, the “land” of her kinsmen. (her gods, means her judges,people)

Ruth 2:1 Boaz is introduced as a kinsman of her mother-in-law. Here Boaz clearly represents our KINSMAN Redeemer, Yahshua!!!!

Ruth 2:2-3 Ruth is determined to stay in the company of Boaz. Here, she represents the Remnant, sticking to OUR KINSMAN REDEEMER, Yahshua.

Ruth 2:4-7 Boaz instructs His servants to keep a watchful eye upon Ruth. This is Yahweh keeping His tender, loving, watchful eye upon His Remnant, those who will eventually become the Bride of Christ.

Ruth 2:8-10 Boaz, representing Yahweh, cautions Ruth, representing the Remnant, to glean only in His fields. Do not go after other gods. Do not go after the false doctrines of the false priests of Apostianity.

In Verse 10, Ruth considers herself a “stranger.” This means that she is one of the lost sheep, who is willing to come back into the fold.

Ruth 2:11-13 In these verses, Boaz (Yahweh) is telling Ruth (Israel) that her estrangement is over. She is being welcomed back into the Household of True Israel. She is awakening to her kinship relationship with Yahweh.

Ruth 2:14-15 This is the Passover meal of the New Covenant, the Last Supper. In verse 14, she ate and was satisfied. She eats of the “bread” of the New Covenant. In verse 15, she is “risen up.” This is a mini-parable of the Last Supper and the rising of Messiah from the dead! The sheaves of Verse 15 can only be the Wave Sheaf offering - Jesus Christ, the first of the FIRSTFRUITS.

Ruth 2:16-17 Ruth continues to gleaned, meaning that she is absorbing the knowledge of the Scriptures, coming into awareness of her Covenant relationship with Yahshua.

Ruth 2:18-23  The “young men” of verse 21 represent the Israelites, who were the First Christians of Pentecost (See Acts 1,2)

In verse 23, Ruth stayed with the maidens of Bethlehem, gleaning until the end of the barley and wheat harvests. The summer harvest of the spring wheat coincided with the countdown to Pentecost, the harvest of the Firstfruits. (Joel 3:23-27.)

Ruth 3:1-3 The full restoration of Israel to her covenant relationship cannot occur until the Remnant of all twelve tribes come into realization of their Israelite identity.

Ruth 3:4-7 We, His Remnant, the future Bride of Christ, must submit ourselves humbly to Him, laying ourselves down AT HIS FEET, waiting for Him to return (awaken).

In these verses, Ruth represents Israel understanding what she must do in order to prepare herself as the Bride of Christ. Naomi represents the Old Testament (RIGHTEOUSNESS) wisdom that urges her on.

Ruth 3:9 Do you know your Identity?  This is True Israel finally recognizing her true relationship with her Kinsman Redeemer!

Ruth 3:10-14 The unnamed nearer kinsman is symbolic of the pseudo-Christian churches, WHO ARE NOT WILLING TO MARRY RUTH!

Ruth 3:15 The veil that hides her identity will become her wedding veil!!!

Ruth 3:16 Ruth explains that she now anticipates that she is a bride-to-be, the lady in waiting for her groom.

Ruth 3:17 I believe that the six measures of barley represent the entire record of the Bible for True Israel, from the sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden, six thousand years ago.

Ruth 3:18 Yahshua will not rest until He completes His mission.

Ruth 4:1-5 These verses detail the legal requirements for redeeming Ruth and her property. She must be redeemed before she can be married.

Ruth 4:5-10 Firstborn by law will carry on name of Mahlon. Symbolically, cast-off, widowed Israel, in being married to Yahshua, is reclaimed in the name of Yahweh, our first “husband.”

Ruth 4:11-12 Ruth is to become as famous, remembered.

Ruth 4:13 THE WEDDING FEAST OF THE LAMB!

Ruth 4:14 Naomi represents joy 7 Fold. Israel’s glory will be restored sevenfold.

Ruth 4:15-16  Naomi, symbol of the Old Testament prophets and lawgivers, nurses Obed (Servant)

Ruth 4:17 Israel Restored

Ruth 4:18-22 The lineage of Messiah confirmed.

 

Proverbs 12:4  A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

Septuagint ends as: '...but as a worm in wood, so a bad woman destroys her husband.'

Virtuous means: Being in conformity to the moral or divine law; as a virtuous action; a virtuous life.

Christ will only redeem a virtuous bride. When we obey and follow The Way, we honor our Husband.

 

Proverbs 31:10  Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Proverbs 31:23  Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

Proverbs 31:28  Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

This brief chapter records what his mother taught him. The first nine verses are her councils as to what is fitting for Kings. Then follows a description of 'a virtuous woman'.

King Lemuel might be the same as king Solomon.

BDB Definition: Lemuel = 'for Yahweh'.

Strongs': (belonging) to God; Lemuel or Lemoel, a symbolical name of Solomon.

This proverb is symbolic of obedient Israel as a nation. This only happened a few times. The days of David, the early days of Solomon, the days of Josiah and a small handful of good kings of Judah, the days after the return to Jerusalem from Babylonian captivity under Ezra and Nehemiah, the Reformation and the last virtuous age for the children of Jacob, the beginnings of America.

 

Isaiah 54:5  For thy Maker is thine husband; Yahweh of hosts is His name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall He be called.

 54:6  For Yahweh hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.

When we were divorced in 745 BC.

 54:7  For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

The New Covenant in Christ. The OT sacrificial rituals and priesthood expired. The law written on our hearts. The reconciliation of the House of Judah in Jerusalem, and the dispersed House of Israel among the nations outside Jerusalem.

 54:8  In a little wrath I hid My face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith Yahweh thy Redeemer.

 54:9  For this is as the waters of Noah unto Me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

 54:10  For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed, saith Yahweh that hath mercy on thee.

The “churches” ignore these statements of exclusivity of the covenants to the children of Israel. Nowhere they can show that these covenants changed hands.

 

Jeremiah 3:6  Yahweh said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.

 3:7  And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto Me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.

 3:8  And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

 3:9  And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.

Idols, the images of gods.

 3:10  And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto Me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith Yahweh.

Hosea 7:14  And they have not cried unto Me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against Me.

 3:11  And Yahweh said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

 3:12  Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith Yahweh; and I will not cause Mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith Yahweh, and I will not keep anger for ever.

 3:13  Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against Yahweh thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed My voice, saith Yahweh.

Ezekiel 16:15  But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.

 3:14  Turn, O backsliding children, saith Yahweh; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

Hosea 2:19  And I will betroth thee unto Me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto Me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.

 3:15  And I will give you pastors (shepherds) according to Mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Ezekiel 34:23  And I will set up one shepherd over them, and He shall feed them, even My servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.

Ephesians 4:11  And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors (shepherds) and teachers;

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Spirit hath made you overseers, to feed the assembly of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood.

 3:16  And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith Yahweh, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of Yahweh: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.

 3:17  At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of Yahweh; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of Yahweh, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

 3:18  In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.

Sweden, Germany, Europe, etc. The 12 tribes of Israel regathered in America as prophesied.

Isaiah 11:13  The envy also of Ephraim (House of Israel) shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim (Israel) shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim (Israel).

 3:19  But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call Me, My father; and shalt not turn away from Me.

 3:20  Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with Me, O house of Israel, saith Yahweh.

 3:21  A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten Yahweh their God.

 3:22  Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art Yahweh our God.

 3:23  Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in Yahweh our God is the salvation of Israel.

Yahweh provided a path for us to return to Him, and it is through the knowledge, understanding and allegiance to Christ. To be a faithful and obedient bride.

 

 

Chapter 16 is about judgment upon Israel for race mixing.

Ezekiel 16:27  Behold, therefore I have stretched out My hand over you, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered you unto the will of them that hate you, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

The word food is italicized, meaning it was added.

The phrase 'ordinary food' is a reference to abolishing your statutes and ordinances. When a nation is conquered it's the law of the conqueror that prevails.

Just like today, we don't follow scriptural statutes and ordinances, we follow what the Jews are telling us to do, be and have.

 16:28  Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.

 16:29  Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.

 16:30  How weak is thine heart, saith Yahweh GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

 16:31  In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;

 16:32  But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!

 16:33  They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto you on every side for thy whoredom.

Hosea 8:9  For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim (house of Israel) hath hired lovers.  

 16:34  And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

 

Mark 10:10  And in the house His disciples asked Him again of the same matter.

 10:11  And He saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

 10:12  And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.  Luke 16:18

Even when Yahweh divorced our ancestors, He did not love, choose, bless, or promise and make covenants with any other people. He was, is and always will be faithful (loyal) to us. We, unfortunately, are whores. It is up to us to continue in His Ways and strive for allegiance with Him.

 

John 4:5  Then cometh He to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

Genesis 33:19  And he (Jacob) bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father, for an hundred pieces of money.

Genesis 48:22  Moreover I (Jacob) have given to thee (Joseph) one portion above thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

 4:6  Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with His journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour (noon).

 4:7  There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give Me to drink.

 4:8  (For His disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

 4:9  Then saith the woman of Samaria unto Him, How is it that thou, being a Judaean, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Judaeans have no dealings with the Samaritans.

Samaria was the capitol of the House of Israel (the 10 northern tribes, also known as the uncircumcision, the dispersed Nations, and wrongly “Gentiles”). When the children of Israel were taken captive and out of that land, they were replaced with Canaanites and other nations of peoples. The Judaeans were the remnant of the House of Judah that returned after the Babylonian captivity. This is also why the religious sects became corrupted by the time of Christ. The Edomite/Canaanite people (tares) grew among the wheat (Israelites). Matt 13:30

2Kings 17:24  And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim (a branch of Jew), and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.

This started the infiltration of the Levitical priesthood by these relocated Sepharvaim Jews.

 

...How is it that thou, being a Judaean, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Judaeans have no dealings with the Samaritans.

The Samaritans and the Judaeans had a history of war with each other.

 4:10  Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give Me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee living water.

Isaiah 12:3  Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 44:3  For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My spirit upon thy seed, and My blessing upon thine offspring:

The seed and offspring of Jacob.

 4:11  The woman saith unto Him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

 4:12  Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

This woman living in Samaria, which at that time was a land of many nations of peoples, makes a statement of kinship to Jacob. She is an Israelite. Christ does not deny this.

 4:13  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

The water in the well.

 4:14  But whosoever (he who should) drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

'whosoever' is referring to those of a group, the group being the children of Israel. The promises and inheritance was given to Abraham and his seed. This was a covenant that did not include those outside the race of Adam.

 4:15  The woman saith unto Him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

 4:16  Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

 4:17  The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

 4:18  For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

Some say that this can also be referring to the waves of the 5 kingdoms that punished the bride (Israel) in that land. Assyrians, Babylonians, Medo-Persians, Macedonians and Romans.

 4:19  The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

 4:20  Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

 4:21  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe Me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

 4:22  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

22  You worship that which you do not know. We worship that which we know, because salvation is from among the Judaeans.

2Kings 17:29  Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt.

They worshiped dumb gods, myths.

Christ was a Judahite from the tribe of Judah. The remnant that returned was responsible for preserving the law and bringing in the Messiah. The Israelites of Judaea. The House of Judah received the gospel first (Acts 13:46). Paul was the apostle to the dispersed House of Israel.

Judaea used to be called Judah, and was the southern kingdom of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi. By the time of Christ, Judah was merged with Idumea (Edomite territory) and became known as Judaea. There were a mixed multitude living in Judaea. Israelites, Canaanites and Edomites, among other mixed races. This confusion is only one of the ways how the Jews deceive our people into believing that they are the Israelites of the Bible.

 4:23  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.

Philippians 3:3  For we are the circumcision (Judaeans), who in spirit are serving Yahweh, and boast in Christ Jesus, and not trusting in flesh.

 4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

 4:25  The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when He is come, He will tell us all things.

This woman, being an Israelite, would be familiar with her heritage and with prophecy. The Israelites were expecting Christ.

 4:26  Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am He.

 4:27  And upon this came His disciples, and marvelled that He talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?

 4:28  The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

 4:29  Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

 4:30  Then they went out of the city, and came unto Him.

 4:31  In the mean while His disciples prayed Him, saying, Master, eat.

 4:32  But He said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

 4:33  Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought Him ought to eat?

 4:34  Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of Him that sent Me, and to finish His work.

Job 23:12  Neither have I gone back from the commandment of His lips; I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than My necessary food.

 4:35  Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

 4:36  And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

 4:37  And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

 4:38  I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

 4:39  And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on Him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

 4:40  So when the Samaritans were come unto Him, they besought Him that He would tarry with them: and He abode there two days.

 4:41  And many more believed because of His own word;

 4:42  And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard Him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world (society).

The true Israelites living in Samaria had ears to hear.

 

Marriage to Christ

Know the difference between good and evil

Struggles against the flesh

Romans 7:1  Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?

 7:2  For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.  (1 Cor 7:39)

 7:3  So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

 7:4  Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to Him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.  (Cal 2:19, 5:18,22, Col 2:14)

The law being referred to is the law of the husband, divorce and adultery.

If you are following Christ's example, the law is dead to you. He came to die for His bride (Israel) so that by law, He can remarry us.

Yahweh had to die in the flesh in order for us to be able to be married to Him through Yahshua Christ in the spirit.

We cannot be married to Yahweh while in this corruptible body. When we die, if we have lived upright and seeking knowledge and understanding, and practicing The Way and the example Christ showed us, we will be married to Yahshua in our incorruptible bodies (Shekinah Glory).

 

1Corinthians 7:1  Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch (join with) a woman.

 7:2  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

 7:3  Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

 7:4  The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

Simple common sense for being faithful husbands and wives. The same goes for us as individuals and a race, to be faithful to Yahshua Christ.

 

2Corinthians 11:2  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

 11:3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity (sincerity and purity) that is in Christ (with the Anointed, the group, the seed of Jacob).

 11:4  For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Verse 4 is a question.

4 For if indeed one coming proclaims another Yahshua whom we did not proclaim, or you admit a different spirit which you have not received, or a different good message which you had not accepted, would you hold up well?

Galatians 1:7-8

7  Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

From the beginning with Eve and to today, we are deceived and tricked by our adversaries, they lead us astray with their practices and we become adulterers to Yahweh, an unfaithful bride.

 

Galatians 4:27  For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.

Isaiah 54:1  Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith Yahweh.

Desolate- Ishmaelites mixed with Canaanites and Edomites. Arabs have Jew blood.

She with a husband-Sarah, Israelites. Children of the promise.

 4:28  Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

I don't know how I can explain this exclusiveness any better.

Acts 3:25  Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.

 4:29  But as then he (Ishmael) that was born after the flesh persecuted him (Isaac) that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

 4:30  Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman (Hagar) and her son (Ishmael): for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman (Sarah).

 4:31  So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

If Ishmael was Abraham's son too, and Yahweh said that the promises were only to Isaac and his seed, how can the “churches” add everybody else? They can't. The Bible is for only the Adamic race and to the Israelites specifically. If you don't know who the Israelites are, then how can you understand the Bible? You can't. There is a specific seed that is Yahweh's, and there is a specific seed that is the Devil's. Gen 3:15 Matt 13:36-43

Christ is an Israelite and His bride must be Israelites.

 

Ephesians 5:22  Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Prince.

 5:23  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church (assembly): and He is the saviour (deliverer) of the body.

The KJV writers were ordered to change the original Greek word 'ecclesia' to church.

Ecclesia does not refer to a building or a religious hierarchy. It certainly does not mean what the “churches” have become today.

Ekklesia

From a compound of G1537 A primary preposition denoting origin (the point whence motion or action proceeds), from, out (of place, time or cause; literally or figuratively; direct or remote): - after,  and a derivative of G2564 - bid, call (forth); a calling out, that is, (concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation.

It is a called out body of Israelites. It's not those that “believe”, it's those that are descendants of the sons of Jacob.

The origin of the calling out begins at the sacrifice of Isaac. The meeting between Abraham and Yahweh and the motion and action of the allegiance of Abraham to Yahweh to dedicate his most beloved son Isaac up for an offering, STILL believing that Yahweh would keep His promise to make Abraham's seed for His inheritance.

Isaac's seed through Jacob was called out of the greater Adamic race. It is the children of Jacob that are the light of society, the city on the hill, the oil burning bright. It will be the children of Israel that will be the administrating staff in the kingdom.

That is why we had the settling of Europe, the Reformation and the birth of America. We did this while spreading the gospel and abiding in the scriptures, fulfilling our purpose of righteous government in an unrighteous world. Our training grounds. Our job as the bride is to keep the house in order.

 

Ephesians 5:32  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church (assembly).

Ephesians 5:33  Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Amazing how the KJV force feeds the word 'church'. The Greek word is 'ecclesia'. It means an assembly, congregation, or gathering of Yahweh's children, the 'called' seed of Abraham. It never refers to a building, or clerical order. King James ordered his translators to change the Greek word and meaning of 'ecclesia' to the incorrect and deceiving word “church”. NEVER does the word “church” appear in the manuscripts, because it does not mean a building, an order, a hierarchy of clerical apostasy.

It always means the people, the group, the called out saints. The congregation of the Israelite man following The Way.

 

1Timothy 3:1  This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop (supervisor), he desireth a good work.

 3:2  A bishop (supervisor) then must be blameless (irreproachable), the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

 3:3  Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre (money); but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

 3:4  One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity (reverence);

 3:5  (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the assembly of God?)

Bishops and deacons are the same thing, they are servants, ministers of truth. The different words used in the KJV for ministers is to give validity to the layers of authority. We are not to rule over each other. Women and children answer to men, and men to Yahweh.

Verse 2 reiterates that we are to have one husband and one wife. By law, a racial match and a righteous match.

 

Titus 1:4  To Titus, mine own son (purely bred child) after the common faith (belief): Grace (favor), mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Prince Yahshua Christ our Saviour.  

 1:5  For this cause left I you in Crete, that you shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain (establish) elders in every city, as I had appointed you:

Paul set up communities and assemblies, not “church” hierarchy.

Titus was a purely bred Israelite. Titus was Greek. An Israelite of the dispersed Nations of Israel.

Titus 1:6  If any be blameless (without reproach), the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

 1:7  For a bishop (supervisor) must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre (gain, money);

The word steward comes from the Greek word 'oikonomos' which means 'management of a household', in this case God's. (Matt 24:45)

Israelites are the managers of the race of Adam. All Israelites are Adamites. Not all Adamites are Israelites. The Jews and the other races are neither Adamites nor Israelites.

They would be of the family of the serpent and the fallen angels.

 

In the Book of Joel, Chapter 2, Yahweh promises to Israel “25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you. 26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of Yahweh your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and My people shall never be ashamed.” These insects represent the other races that Yahweh uses to punish us when we are disobedient. Today, they have entered our borders, taken our jobs, raped our women, changed our laws and profaning our heritage. Here in these last chapters of the Revelation we see a vision of the fulfillment of that promise to restore the damage done by these aliens, as a result of our whoring among the nations.

Describes heaven on earth

Revelation 21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Isaiah 65:17  For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

The new heaven and earth represent a new organization of the people of God in a cleansed land.

The dragon is world Jewry and all the other descendants of the serpent, in the sea of the world's peoples. All of these shall be cast into the Lake of Fire. An entirely Adamic world shall be heaven indeed.

Revelation 21:2  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Jerusalem often refers to the people, the children of Jacob. Heaven is simply righteousness. When Christ returns, we who where adorned with allegiance to Him in mortal life, will receive our Shekinah Glory incorruptible bodies and reign with Christ in the kingdom of righteousness here on earth.

Isaiah 52:1  Awake, awake; put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean.

A righteous world with no uncleanness and no sin, no enemies, no darkness, nothing unrighteous. Truly a marriage made in heaven.

 

 

 

THE BRIDE/BRIDEGROOM

 

Psalm 19:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens (skies) declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.

 19:2  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

 19:3  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

 19:4  Their line is gone out through all the earth (land), and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle (tent) for the sun,

 19:5  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

Line in verse 4 is a measuring line.

 19:6  His going forth is from the end (extremity) of the heaven (the sky), and his circuit (course) unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

 19:7  The law of Yahweh is perfect, converting (restoring) the soul: the testimony of Yahweh is sure (established), making wise the simple.

 19:8  The statutes of Yahweh are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of Yahweh is pure, enlightening the eyes.

 19:9  The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of Yahweh are true and righteous altogether.

 19:10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and (the drippings of) the honeycomb.

 19:11  Moreover by them is Your servant warned (taught): and in keeping of them there is great reward.

 19:12  Who can understand his errors? cleanse You me from secret (hidden) faults.

 19:13  Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous (arrogant) sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright (complete), and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

 19:14  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Your sight, O YAHWEH, my strength (rock), and my redeemer.

The context is the glory of Yahweh and His Word and Promise.

In verse 2, speech is from H562 omer, meaning, promise, speech, thing, word.

Day unto day the word spoken by Yahweh shows His glory.

The word for night is from H3915 layil eyl laylah, meaning night; figuratively adversity.

Yahweh's promise shows His word when He preserves us through adversity.

In verse 3, there is no promise or matter of His word where their (His word) proclamation is not heard.

Proclamation is, publication by authority; official notice given to the public; a declaration of the King's (Yahweh's) will, openly published.

In verse 4, Their line (His word) is gone out everywhere. In them (His promises) He set (charged, committed, purposed, showed) a temple (body) for the sun (Christ).

Yahweh's word (plan) was to redeem His people of promise and purpose through coming to die as a man so that we may be remarried through Christ, whom He foretold His people from Genesis to Malachi. The NT is the continuation and fulfillment of the OT.

In verse 5, Which (Christ, the sun) as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and rejoices as a strong (warrior, champion, valiant) man to run (break down, divide speedily, guard, bring hastily) a race (a well trodden road, manner, path, race, rank, troop, way).

Christ will be returning as an avenger. Vengeance is Yahweh's.

He will come quickly and divide speedily. And guard His elect bride.

He will break down and put an end to the well trodden road society is on, and the paths and ways of unrighteousness, and uproot the high rank of our enemies.

In verse 6, nothing is hid from His eyes and His burning fire.

Verse 7 shows that the law is perfect, turning back the soul from certain death.

In verse 8, the statutes (mandates) of Yahweh are right (just). They keep the mind bright.

The commandments are pure (beloved, clear, clean, choice) enlightening the eyes (countenance, thinking, humble, knowledge, favor).

Verses 9-11 teach us to revere Yahweh, and that His judgments (verdict) is righteous and desirable. They warn us and in observing them there is great reward.

Verses 12-13 show that we cannot be perfect, because we commit sins we are not even aware that we do. But it is a good idea to ask for forgiveness for them as well.

Verse 14 closes with the prayer that the effort and sincerity honors our Kinsman Redeemer.

Redeemer: from H1350 ga'al

A primitive root, to redeem (according to the law of kinship), that is, to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relatives property, marry his widow, etc.): -    X in any wise, X at all, avenger, deliver, (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk (-man), purchase, ransom, redeem (-er), revenger.

Yahshua Christ is not the redeemer of the whole world. He is the kinsman redeemer of His people, His race. The bridegroom and the bride are not an interracial couple or “church”.

 

Isaiah 49:18  Lift up thine eyes round about, and behold: all these (the other races) gather themselves together, and come to thee. As I live, saith Yahweh, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all (the other races), as with an ornament, and bind them on thee, as a bride doeth.

Accepting aliens and other races for our “benefit”. They want to live among us, the white nations of the world, even though they hate us.

Isaiah warns his kinsmen of his time, as well as our time, that when we disobey Yahweh's laws of segregation and allowing the other races into our society, they cannot be like us because they are not us. Instead, we give up our allegiance with Yahweh and our history and heritage and traditions and mix them with the other races. Now a once prosperous, white, God fearing Christian nation has become a cesspool of values, racially mixed, and evil society no better than Sodom and Gomorrah.

Why would Christ want to marry that?

 

Isaiah 61:10  I will greatly rejoice in Yahweh, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He hath clothed me with the garments (white skin) of salvation, He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness (the law), as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

Garments in scripture often refer to one's race, skin color. The race of Adam.

Decketh (H3547 kahan) also means, to officiate as a priest.

Indeed Yahshua Christ is our High priest and King.

Adorneth (H5710 adah) means, to pass (put) on or continue.

Indeed we are a kingdom of priests under Yahshua.

 

Isaiah 62:4  Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for Yahweh delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.

Hephzibah means my delight (is) in her. The name of Hezekiah's wife. Manasseh's mother.

Beulah means married.

The Septuagint reads as: “...for thou shalt be called My Pleasure, and thy land Inhabited: for Yahweh has taken pleasure in thee, and thy land shall be inhabited.

 62:5  For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.

The Septuagint has: 5   'And as a young man lives with a virgin, so shall thy sons dwell in thee:..'

When we are a virgin (obedient child of Jacob) we are marriage material. Yahshua can dwell in us.

 

Jeremiah 2:31  O generation, see ye the word of Yahweh. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say My people, We are masters; we will come no more unto thee?

 2:32  Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet My people have forgotten Me days without number.

Jeremiah chapter 2 is a chastisement from Yahweh about race-mixing and foreign trade.

Because we forsook Yahweh's commandment to be a separate people, we are held captive by Mystery Babylon: the great satanic international mercantile beast system, because we sought the trade of other peoples, thereby respecting the false gods and traditions of those peoples.

 

Jeremiah 7:30  For the children of Judah have done evil in My sight, saith Yahweh: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to pollute it.

2Kings 21:4  And he (Manasseh) built altars in the house of Yahweh, of which Yahweh said, In Jerusalem will I put My name.

 7:31  And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into My heart.

Back then they sacrificed their children to Molech (Baal, the Devil, The Lord). We do the same thing today, only it's called abortion, child sex trafficking, and teaching them they can choose their gender!

Yahweh wants pure blood children, obedient and brought up in The Way.

 7:32  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.

2Kings 23:10  And he (Josiah) defiled (declared profane) Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech.

 7:33  And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.

 7:34  Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.

Isaiah 24:7-8

7  The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

8  The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.

Because the children of Israel were married to Yahweh, and they kept sinning with race-mixing and idolatry, Yahweh was going to punish them by sending them into Babylonian captivity.

 

Jeremiah 16:9  For thus saith Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will cause to cease out of this place in your eyes, and in your days, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride.

 16:10  And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath Yahweh pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against Yahweh our God?

This is the same thing today's “church” goers will be saying.

Deuteronomy 29:24  Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath Yahweh done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?

 16:11  Then shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken Me, saith Yahweh, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken Me, and have not kept My law;

 16:12  And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto Me:

 16:13  Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour.

 16:14  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that it shall no more be said, Yahweh liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;  

 16:15  But, Yahweh liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither He had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.

 16:16  Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith Yahweh, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

Archaeology. Hunters also describe archaeologists and the evidence they dig up.

The fishers were the apostles and disciples of Christ spreading the gospel. This phase is over, the world has now heard of Christ, in one way or another, just look at all the denominations.

Jeremiah 31:34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahweh: for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith Yahweh: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

The hunters are those who are searching for the sheep. The hunters are the elect of Yahweh that have knowledge and understanding and hunt for those that can hear.

The bride must make herself ready. This is not done by water or “just believing”.

Knowledge and understanding, practice and commitment. Allegiance.

 

Chapter 25 is Jeremiah's 70 year prophecy.

Jeremiah 25:8  Therefore thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Because ye have not heard My words,

 25:9  Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith Yahweh, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations.

 25:10  Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle.  

 25:11  And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

586-516 BC

 25:12  And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith Yahweh, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.

Babylon was taken by the Persians in 539 BC.

Not only was Yahweh punishing His whore bride children of Israel for their race-mixing and idolatry, He was sending them into captivity in Babylon because they failed for 70 years to keep the land sabbaths.

 

Jeremiah 33:10  Thus saith Yahweh; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast,

 33:11  The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise Yahweh of hosts: for Yahweh is good; for His mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of Yahweh. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith Yahweh.

 33:12  Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an habitation of shepherds causing their flocks to lie down.

 33:13  In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that telleth them, saith Yahweh.

Yahweh is assuring that they will return after the Babylonian captivity.

Yahweh loves His bride, that is why He is constantly purging us by chastisement and punishment. When we return to Him, we return to favor (grace). We honor Him by obedience. We become a worthy bride.

 

Joel 2:15  Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Zion represents Judah, the government of Israel. Assembly is a meeting.

 2:16  Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

The children of Israel as a nation are the bride of Yahweh their God, and they will have mercy and survive the Babylonian invasion if they marry themselves to Him, which requires submission and obedience to Him.

 2:17  Let the priests, the ministers of Yahweh, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Yahweh, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen (nations) should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

 2:18  Then will Yahweh be jealous for His land, and pity His people.

The phrase “between the porch and the altar” refers to the inner court of the temple. Yahweh shall spare His people for His Own sake, because they are His heritage. The people themselves are not worthy of mercy, but shall receive mercy on account of His Word and His promises.

 

Matthew 9:14  Then came to Him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but Your disciples fast not?

 9:15  And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn (hunger), as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. Mark 2:19

The Jews murdered Christ.

Calling the apostles sons of the bridechamber is a clear reference to those Old Testament prophecies where Yahweh promises to betroth the children of Israel once again, after having put them off in divorce in the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities.

 9:16  No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent  is made worse.

The new garment, which would be righteousness, cannot be put on an old garment (the flesh), for the patch (piece), or little bit of righteousness divides the spirit from the flesh.

I believe what this is saying is that we cannot put on our Shekinah Glory until Christ's return, because we cannot serve two masters. (Mat 6:24 Luk 16:13)

We cannot graft our Christian understanding onto any other denomination.

 9:17  Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and  the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

A new mind of knowledge and understanding in a new body of action and allegiance.

Luke 5:38  But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.

 5:39  No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

Christ pointed out the resistance of people to change from their familiar or comfortable doctrines. He did so by illustrating the love of people for the old wine – representing the doctrines which they are accustomed to, over an acceptance of the new wine which is the revelation of truth in Him. He said at Luke 5:39 “And no one drinking the old desires the new, for ‘the old’, one says, ‘is good’.  We must renew our minds (bottles) and accept Truth.

 

Matthew 25:1  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Ephesians 5:29-30

29  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Prince the assembly:

30  For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.

The virgins represent the children of Israel. Unmixed.

 25:2  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

 25:3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

 25:4  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

 25:5  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

 25:6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

 25:7  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

'trimmed', put in order, prepared. 'lamps', the flame of which is fed with oil.

 25:8  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

 25:9  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

 25:10  And while they (the foolish) went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

The foolish virgins were found in the marketplace supporting the Beast system (Mystery Babylon).

 25:11  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Master, Master, open to us.

 25:12  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Psalm 5:5  The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Hosea 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:...

Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.

 25:13  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

We must keep our lamps full with knowledge, understanding, and shine it brightly with obedience and allegiance, loyal and ready at all times for our bridegroom to come.

 

The marriage feast in Cana

John 2:9  When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

 2:10  And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then (set forth) that (wine) which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

 2:11  This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth His glory (honor); and His disciples believed on Him.

 

John 3:25  Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Judaeans about purifying.

 3:26  And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, He that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to Him.

 3:27  John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

Hebrews 5:4  And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

 3:28  Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before Him.  (Mal 3:1)

 3:29  He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

John was the friend of the bridegroom. He prepared, made firm, established the way. John cleansed and prepared Christ for sacrifice.

 

Revelation 18:21  And a mighty angel (messenger) took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Jeremiah 51:64  And you shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.

 18:22  And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in you (Babylonian society); and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in you (Babylonian society); and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in you (Babylonian society);

 18:23  And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in you (Babylonian society); and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in you (Babylonian society): for your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries (pharmaceuticals) were all nations deceived.

Jeremiah 7:34  Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth (cheerfulness), and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.

 18:24  And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

The Jewish world of sorcery (pharmaceuticals) and multiculturalism, commerce and materialism, and fornication and race-mixing and deviancy and godlessness and everything else which the beast system represents shall fall, and it shall all be destroyed, supplanted by the Kingdom of God.

90% of LSD in U.S. is made in Tel Aviv.

The bride (we Israelites) have lived through all these beast empires since Egypt. A remnant of us have always kept and proclaimed the Word of Yahweh. The beast empires have always oppressed us by usury, deception, infiltration and multiculturalism. Christ is returning for those of us, dead and living, that walked uprightly in knowledge and understanding and obedience.

 

Revelation 21:9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels (messengers) which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew you the bride, the Lamb's wife.

 21:10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

 21:11  Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

 21:12  And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

Ezekiel 48:31-34

31  And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben, one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi.

32  And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.

33  And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures: and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of Zebulun.

34  At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali.

 21:13  On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

The names of the twelve tribes themselves are the twelve gates, because the only way into the City of God is to be born of one of those tribes!

The bride is the children of Jacob.  

The city is foursquare just as the Tabernacle in the Wilderness was foursquare, and just as the sheet in Peter's famous vision of Acts chapter 10 was foursquare (which was not about eating pork, but that Christ's blood has made the lost and dispersed Israelites clean as well as the Israelites in Judaea). The breastplate made for the high priest, described in Exodus chapter 28, was also foursquare, with 12 stones representing the 12 tribes. All of this helps to signify that the Kingdom of Yahweh is meant for the Children of Israel exclusively, because it is measured to fit Israel only.

 

Revelation 22:17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Yahshua Christ is the only true Water of Life (John 4), yet He came only “for the lost sheep of the house of Israel”, those with whom His covenant was made (Jeremiah 31:31). The scope of the original calling has never changed.

 

 

MARRIAGE

 

Ezekiel 16:38  And I will judge you, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give you blood in fury and jealousy.

Leviticus 20:10  And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

 

Matthew 22:1  And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

 22:2  The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

 22:3  And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden (invited) to the wedding: and they would not come.

The servants would be the prophets and disciples, those invited would be the children of Israel.

 22:4  Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden (invited), Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

 22:5  But they (those invited) made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

 22:6  And the rest took his (the king's)  servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

 22:7  But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

 22:8  Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden (invited) were not worthy.

 22:9  Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid (invite) to the marriage.

 22:10  So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

 22:11  And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

Since Israel (the 12 tribes) is the bride, and Christ came only for the lost sheep of Israel, and Yahweh demands a pure seed, and by law, Christ can only marry His own kin. The wedding garment is a reference to skin color, race, posterity. This would be the anglo-saxon bride.

 22:12  And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

This would be one of the tares of the parable in Matthew chapter 13 . Speechless because they have NO claim to that of the wheat.

 22:13  Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 22:14  For many are called, but few are chosen.

There are those who want to say that the wedding garment is one's character, or that it is somehow “spiritual”.

The bible is the book of the generations of Adam. Adam is a race. This book is about our heritage, not any other race's heritage.

 

Matthew 22:23  The same day came to Him the Sadducees (Edomite Jews), which say that there is no resurrection, and asked Him,

 22:24  Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

 22:25  Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:

 22:26  Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

 22:27  And last of all the woman died also.

 22:28  Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

 22:29  Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

 22:30  For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. Mar 12:25

Luke 20:34  And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world (age) marry, and are given in marriage:

 20:35  But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world (age), and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

 20:36  Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

 22:31  But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

 22:32  I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

Enoch 15:1-9 talks about marriage in heaven.

 

Matthew 24:36  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.

 24:37  But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 24:38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,  (Gen 6:3-5) Luk 17:27

 24:39  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

As scripture reveals, and Christ states, the evil is taken away while the righteous remain. But the “churches” like to teach everything backwards. There is no “rapture”.

 24:40  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

 24:41  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

 24:42  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Prince doth come.

 24:43  But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.  (Rev 3:3)

 24:44  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

1Thessalonians 5:6  Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

 24:45  Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

 24:46  Blessed is that servant, whom his master when he cometh shall find so doing.  

Yahshua does not want a lazy, ignorant “believer”.

 

Paul is preaching in a time of persecution, not a good time to start a family.

1Corinthians 7:32  But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Prince, how he may please the Prince:

 7:33  But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world (society), how he may please his wife.

 7:34  There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Prince, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world (society), how she may please her husband.

 7:35  And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Prince without distraction.

 7:36  But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.

 7:37  Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.

 7:38  So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.  (Heb 13:4)

 

Hebrews 13:4  Marriage is honourable in all (valuable in every way), and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.  (1 Cor 6:9)

 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he hath said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.

The Greek: 5  The way of life without love of money, being satisfied with the present circumstances; for He has said: “By no means would I leave you, nor in any way would I forsake you.”

If we keep our bed undefiled from race mixing and false religion, our marriage to Christ is honorable.

 

Revelation 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.

Matthew 22:2  The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

Matthew 25:10  And while they (foolish virgins) went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

 19:8  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.   (Psa 45:13, Ez 16:10)

 19:9  And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Only the children of Israel have ever been invited to this feast.

The children of Israel are the bride, and none other: for Yahweh only prophesied these things concerning Israel.

 

Revelation 19:17  And I saw an angel (messenger) standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper (feast) of the great God;

Ezekiel 39:17  And, you son of man, thus saith Yahweh GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to My sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

 19:18  That ye (the fowls) may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

When Christ comes and slays the wicked and the disobedient, the scavengers of the earth will feast on the bodies of those slain.

Will you be the righteous bride, or the unrighteous dinner?

 

 

DIVORCE

 

DIVORCE, v.t.

1. To dissolve the marriage contract, and thus to separate husband and wife.

2. To separate, as a married woman from the bed and board of her husband.

3. To separate or disunite things closely connected; to force asunder.

4. To take away; to put away.

 

Leviticus 21:13  And he shall take a wife in her virginity.

 21:14  A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.

 21:15  Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I Yahweh do sanctify him.

Although chapter 21 is instruction for the Levitical priests, the one rule that still applies today is to take a wife of our own people.

 

Jacob (the children of Israel) are the subject.

Isaiah 50:1  Thus saith Yahweh, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of My creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.

Deuteronomy 24:1  When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

Jeremiah 3:8  And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

The divorce started in 745 BC. This is when Yahweh cast Israel off into punishment.

The 'lost' sheep of the house of Israel are these Israelites that did not return to their land in Canaan (the Promised Land) after captivity. They migrated elsewhere and settled. Greece, Italy, Spain, Europe, eventually America. These are the scattered and dispersed 'lost' sheep that Paul and the gospel were sent. The gospel is only for Israel.

 

Jeremiah 3:1  They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to Me, saith Yahweh.

The Septuagint has 'woman' where the KJV has 'land'.

Yahweh is invoking the law of the wife. The law does not allow a husband to take back an adulterous wife. Yahweh is our husband, we, true Israel, are the bride. The only way for Yahweh to be reconciled to Israel is to die.

Deuteronomy 24:4  Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yahweh: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which Yahweh thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

 3:2  Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness.

Where have you not had sex?

Proverbs 23:27-28

27  For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

28  She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

 3:3  Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.

A 'whore's forehead' is an idiom meaning 'it can't be missed' or 'it is clear' that one is a whore.

Zephaniah 3:5  The just Yahweh is in the midst thereof; He will not do iniquity: every morning doth He bring His judgment to light, He faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.

 3:4  Wilt thou not from this time cry unto Me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?

Proverbs 2:17  Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

 3:5  Will He reserve His anger for ever? will He keep it to the end? Behold, thou hast spoken and done evil things as thou couldest.

Psalm 103:9  He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger for ever.

Isaiah 57:16  For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before Me, and the souls which I have made.

 3:6  Yahweh said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.

Idol worship sites. Today it's TV, the mall, credit cards, materialism, and the denominations of all the “churches”.

 3:7  And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto Me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.

 3:8  And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce (745BC); yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

 3:9  And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.

Idols, the images of gods. Today it's movie/rock stars, expensive trends, TV, unChristian home decorations, fiat currency and usury, the statues on our government buildings (such as Persiphone on the Capitol building).

 3:10  And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto Me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith Yahweh.

Hosea 7:14  And they have not cried unto Me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against Me.

 3:11  And Yahweh said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

The northern House of Israel was a whore as well as the southern House of Judah. Both were cast off. Only a remnant of Judah returned, rebuilt the temple, walls and city, to re-establish the law, and bring in the Messiah 400 years later (through their descendants of course, Joseph and Mary). Both houses of Judah and Israel were reconciled under the New Covenant to Christ.

Matthew 5:31  It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

       (Deut 24:1, Jer 3:1)

 5:32  But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Marriage is a commitment. Unfaithfulness results in divorcement.

 

Matthew 19:7  They (Pharisees) say unto Him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?  (Deut 24:1) Mar 10:4

 19:8  He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts had permitted you to put away your wives: but from the beginning (since Adam) it was not so.

 19:9  And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

 19:10  His disciples say unto Him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good (no advantage) to marry.

Proverbs 21:19  It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

 19:11  But He said unto them, All men cannot receive (comprehend) this saying, save they to whom it is given.

1Corinthians 7:2,7,9

2  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

7  For I (Paul) would that all men were even as I myself (single). But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

9  But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn (desire).

 19:12  For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs by men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive (comprehend) it, let him receive (comprehend) it.

Apparently Moses was more lenient about divorce than Yahshua Christ. But as stated by Christ, only death, uncleanness, illicit sexual acts, and race mixing are grounds for divorce.

 

HOSEA

 

Hosea began his prophesying, according to his own introduction, at the time when Uzziah (who is also sometimes confusingly called Azariah in the King James Version) ruled over Judah and Jeroboam II ruled over Israel. Both of these men reigned for a long time: Uzziah, who was stricken with leprosy while he ruled, from about 791-739 BC and Jeroboam II from 793-753 BC. Therefore Hosea began to prophecy before 753 BC. He wrote until the days of Hezekiah.

Hosea wrote from no later than 753 BC unto at least 722 BC, a period of at least 32 years during the time described in the Bible from II Kings chapters 14 to 20, and from II Chronicles chapters 26 to 32.

 

Although the general message of all the prophets was inevitably warning, remonstrance, and plain speaking as to the result of persistent wrong-doing and idolatry, each prophet was given, by Yahweh, an individual message, not only for his own times, but also for future ages, called 'the latter days', which refer to the second coming of Yahshua Messiah to this earth to rule.

 

Hosea was a countryman, and illustrations from rural life appear naturally in his book. Hosea was a tender-hearted man, as so often the true countryman is. He was a man of the northern Kingdom of Israel, and his ministry, which lasted for about 60 years, was mainly to that northern Kingdom, during the reign of it's last seven kings.

Hosea's style is terse and rapid. His writings were known to our Prince Yahshua and to Paul, both of whom quoted from them.

This book has a unique quality in that we are given an insight into Hosea' private life. Hosea symbolized that which was being enacted on a national scale in the life of his countrymen in the Kingdom of Israel.

In the Song of Solomon, the people of Israel stood in the relationship of wife to Yawheh; betrothed, married, faithless, and divorced as a result of that faithlessness, also, that the prophetical books take up the story and foretell her re-betrothal.

Here, in the life of Hosea, we have a complete symbolism of that picture.

His wife was faithless and adulterous, and in Hosea's constancy, tenderness and desire for her return, is a parallel, easily understood by human minds, of Yahweh's mercy and oft-proclaimed call, through the prophets, to His 'bride' Israel, to return to Him in repentance and restoration.

Hosea had three children, who stood for 'signs'.

 

Hosea 1:1  The word of Yahweh that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah,

       Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam II the son of Joash, king

       ofIsrael.

This is, for the most part, the same period of time during which the prophet Isaiah wrote. The prophets Amos, Jonah, and Joel all prophesied in the time of Jeroboam II and Uzziah, near or perhaps slightly earlier than the time of Hosea and Isaiah.

Micah and Nahum wrote towards the end of this same period.

 1:2  The beginning of the word of Yahweh by Hosea. And Yahweh said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from Yahweh.

Later in Hosea's prophecy we will see the relationship between Yahweh and Israel explained allegorically as that between a Husband and a Wife – the wife being the nation.

Here, Yahweh instructs the prophet to go find a whore for a wife, and therefore God is using the prophet as a direct example of His Own relationship with Israel, the nation of whores.

 1:3  So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.

The real meaning behind the name of the woman here is that Gomer means complete. The Old Kingdom had run its course and the children of Israel had fulfilled their sin, and therefore Yahweh would make an end of that kingdom and send them all off into captivity. The name of Gomer's father is Diblaim, which means “two cakes”, and while Gomer would have three children by Hosea, the “two cakes” may of course be representative of Judah and Israel.

 1:4  And Yahweh said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.

The first son signified the withdrawal of the Kingship from northern Israel for a time--'Many days without a King,' (Hos 3:4) but he was also a sign of their cessation of idolatry, 'without an image.' (Hos 3:5) We now know that, after the captivities, the Israelites, as a people, did not again fall into idolatry. This son, Jezreel, was also a sign of their return to Yahweh 'in the latter days.'

 1:5  And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.

Jeroboam II, the king of Israel when Hosea begins to prophecy, is a member of the house of Jehu. Jezreel means God sows. This is a reference to 2 Kings chapter 10 and the destruction of the House of Ahab. Jehu had a commission from Yahweh to supplant the wicked house of Ahab, but he did not use that commission righteously, and he turned out to be just as wicked as Ahab – and therefore Yahweh here uses Jehu as a prime example of the wickedness of Israel. Elisha the prophet sent the following message to Jehu, and the delivery of that message is recorded in 2 Kings 9:5-10. When Jehu told his fellows - all of them servants in the army of the king - they accepted the message and proclaimed him their king. Ahab was already dead, and his son Joram, a son whom he had with Jezebel, was king in Israel. Jehu being a captain in his army, was commissioned by Yahweh to lead a mutiny. Jehu slew Joram in Jezreel, as he was meeting with Ahaziah the king of Judah, and then Jehu also had Ahaziah killed as he tried to retreat. So it is evident that immediately Jehu overstepped his commission, since Ahaziah was not of the house of Ahab.

As it is related at the end of 2 Kings chapter 9, Jehu witnessed the fact that Jezebel's corpse was eaten by dogs before it could be buried. Seeing then the words of the prophet who gave him his commission fulfilled, Jehu exclaimed that “This is the word of Yahweh, which he spake by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel”. So there is no doubt that Jehu should have known the source of his ability to be king over Israel, as the prophet had anointed him, seeing these two prophecies come true in short time. It may be fitting to read the rest of the story of Jehu, from 2 Kings chapter 10:1-36

Even with all that Jehu acknowledged of the word of God, and saw fulfilled with his eyes, he chose not to complete the reforms which he had undertaken. He was commended for everything that he did well, which he was told to do, so it cannot be the blood of the house of Ahab that Yahweh would avenge, since Yahweh commissioned Jehu to destroy the house of Ahab. Rather, it must be the innocent blood that Jehu shed at Jezreel that Yahweh would avenge, where Jehu went beyond his commission. Once we recognize the power of God, we must continue to walk in His ways. If we falter, we shall be held accountable for our errors.

Jehu, after all that he witnessed, yet still taking “no heed to walk in the law of Yahweh God of Israel with all his heart”, is used as our example here, of why Yahweh found it necessary to “cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel” as it says in Hosea 1:4. Note that it does not say that the house of Israel itself would be cut off, but only the kingdom of the house of Israel, placing the blame for the corruption of the people on its rulers. Jehu, the best of men, who fully acknowledged the power of the Word of God when he saw it, still could not bring good government to the people.

 1:6  And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.

Loruhamah, simply means no mercy.

Israel was told through the prophet that they would be utterly taken away. The Assyrians had already been taking away and resettling other nations, and the Assyrian threat to the sovereignty of Israel was already evident .

 1:7  But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by Yahweh their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.

Israel would be carried away, but Judah would be preserved. Now it is clear from the records, that the Assyrians carried away 46 fenced cities of Judah, many thousands of its people, along with Israel.

However the inhabitants of Jerusalem were not taken, and the kingdom remained intact in spite of losing many of its cities. Judah would be preserved from the Assyrian conquests.

2Kings 19:34-36

34  For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

35  And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

36  So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

Hosea's second child was a mercy sign to the royal house of Judah, and 2Kings, Jeremiah and Ezekiel show how, by a daughter, the continuance of the royal line was insured.

 1:8  Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.

 1:9  Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not My people, and I will not be your God.

Hosea's third child was a sign of the disappearance even of the name by which Yahweh's people had been known. Israel means 'ruling with God (EL)'.

Loammi means not my people. Here we see it prophesied of the children of Israel, that they would not be considered to be the children of Yahweh any longer - but Yahweh is not disclaiming them – rather, they simply won't be considered His people although they shall always be His people. Verse 10 substantiates that assessment.

 1:10  Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not My people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

The Jews can easily be numbered. We, the anglo-saxon true children of Israel cannot be numbered. The pieces must fit the puzzle. Here in America, the Jews have polluted our “churches” and they teach that we are not God's people. Verse 10 is a prophecy that we shall be called the sons of the living God. The Jews are not Israel, we are true Israel.

 1:11  Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

Here Jezreel should be taken in its literal sense, meaning God sows. Here we see the word Jezreel used in connection with the Israelites of the captivity.

Yahweh God had the children of Israel, along with an often-overlooked but significant portion of Judah, all taken away and sown elsewhere in the countrysides of northern Mesopotamia. From there they would branch into Asia and Europe, and eventually on to America, the regathering place of the 12 tribes. America was born in a day, we elected one head, and we brought the gospel to the world.

 

 

Hosea 2:1  Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ruhamah.

Ammi is My people, and Ruhamah is to have mercy. We are not following the last verse of chapter 1 here. Rather, the end of chapter 1 looks to the future reconciliation of Yahweh and Israel, which cannot happen until the coming of Christ, because Israel is being divorced by Yahweh. Here in chapter 2 the focus shifts back to Hosea's own time, where the final warnings are issued to Israel, the wife of Yahweh, concerning her adultery.

 2:2  Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not My wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts;

Isaiah 50:1  Thus saith Yahweh, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of My creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.

 2:3  Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst.   (Jer 13:22, Amos 8:11)

 2:4  And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms.

 2:5  For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.

The children of Israel were commanded to be a separate people, period. The command to be holy – to be separate from all other peoples of the earth, begins with the Exodus in chapter 19 when Israel became the Wife of Yahweh, and it is repeated all throughout the Scripture. Here we see, that one of the main reasons why in ancient times Israel disobeyed the command to be separate, was commerce. Commerce, the hopes of greater profits from the wider exchange of goods, and the hopes of the procurement of cheaper labor for industry, they are the same reasons given today as an excuse for a multicultural society. Nothing has changed in 3000 years. Our pursuit of commerce with aliens is what makes us whores, because it compels us to accept the ways of the aliens, and eventually – without fail – we end up in bed with them. We sell out our heritage, our principles, and our covenants with our God for the sake of commerce, which is in itself idolatry. The people of Hosea's time did not heed the warning, and they were stripped naked.

 2:6  Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths.

 2:7  And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.

The children of Israel were to be taken away captive, and would not be able to return to Palestine. Rather, the Israelites, later generally known as Kimmerians, Scythians, and Sakae, along with the more peculiar tribal names which they adopted in captivity, sought after their pagan gods until finally Christianity caught up with them, a thousand to fifteen hundred years later. Adopting Christianity, Israel indeed returned to her first husband: Yahshua Christ was the physical incarnation of God Himself. Yahweh tells us in Hosea that He is the “first Husband” of Israel, who will return to Him. Later in this chapter we shall see Yahweh promise to betroth once again those same people of Israel. There is no promise of any relationship between Yahweh and any other people to be found anywhere in the Old Testament or New.

The theme of the entire Bible is built around the marriage relationship of Israel and Yahweh their God, their sin, their alienation from Him, and their reconciliation to Him in Christ.

 2:8  For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.

Isaiah 1:3  The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, My people doth not consider.

 2:9  Therefore will I return, and take away My corn in the time thereof, and My wine in the season thereof, and will recover My wool and My flax given to cover her nakedness.

 2:10  And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of Mine hand.

 2:11  I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.

Amos 8:10  And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

 2:12  And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, whereof she hath said, These are my rewards that my lovers have given me: and I will make them a forest (a testimony), and the beasts of the field shall eat them.

The ancient children of Israel were blessed by God, but imagined that their blessings had come to them through their intercourse with the other nations of the world. Therefore they shared their blessings with the other nations around them, where here it uses the expression “which they prepared for Baal” to describe that very thing. So it is today, that we are being led to imagine that our success is to be found in our diversity, and we are compelled to freely share our blessings with the other races of the world. Yet in reality diversity only leads to our destruction.

 2:13  And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim, wherein she burned incense to them, and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers, and forgat Me, saith Yahweh.

 2:14  Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.

The wilderness was unsettled, no Canaanites to corrupt the children of Israel.

This describes the eventual transition period of ancient Israel, as the Germanic tribes (of dispersed Israel), away from Canaanite paganism and Baal worship and back to a return to God through Christianity. To this very day, we coddle aliens and suffer their evil ways, their false religions, their race-mixing proclivities, and their false gods, in the name of commerce and false commercial prosperity.

 2:15  And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.   (Jer 2:2, Ez 16:8)

 2:16  And it shall be at that day, saith Yahweh, that thou shalt call Me Ishi; and shalt call Me no more Baali.

 2:17  For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.

We must recognize that we are the children of God – our race – and that our relationship to Him as a race is the same relationship that a wife should have to a husband. Ishi, “my Husband”, and not Baali, which is merely “my Lord”.  Lord is a title, and it references Baal, which is Satan. When you use the 'title' Lord, you are calling on Satan. God's name is Yahweh (I AM).

Exodus 23:13  And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

Psalm 16:4  Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

Don't call Me LORD!!!

 2:18  And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely.

 2:19  And I will betroth thee unto Me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto Me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.

 2:20  I will even betroth thee unto Me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know Yahweh.

 2:21  And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith Yahweh, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth;

Zechariah 8:12  For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.

 2:22  And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel (Yahweh sows).

 2:23  And I will sow her unto Me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not My people, Thou art My people; and they shall say, Thou art My God.

So, as by the sign of the adulterous and restored wife, representing an Adamic people ('I will sow her unto Me in the earth') so, by the sign of the son (Jezreel) they 'which were not My people shall say “Thou art my God”' we see the ultimate victory of Yahweh's love and forgiveness to those to whom He stands, in that closest of all relationships, 'Husband' and 'Father'. Thus once again, Yahweh's relationship t national Israel, as an entity, and to individual Israelites, is revealed.

In chapter 1, Hosea recorded warnings of punishment followed by a promise of hope, here in chapter 2 we see that same pattern. It started off as a chastisement for whoredom, and ended with a promise of redemption. When we return to Yahweh, we will again be considered His people.

 

 

Hosea 3:1  Then said Yahweh unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress,

       according to the love of Yahweh toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love

       flagons of wine.

The chapter's opening phrase may be read “go again”. This is the second time that Hosea has been told to take a whore for a wife, in order to illustrate the relationship between Yahweh and Israel.

Jeremiah 3:20  Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with Me, O house of Israel, saith Yahweh.

The 'friend of the woman' may also represent the other “church” denominations, which are perversions of the original.

Rather than “flagons of wine”, the older Septuagint Greek and Dead Sea Scrolls versions have “raisin cakes” at the end of the verse.

The Greek is a lot clearer than the KJV, which is from the Masoretic Text, and here is Hosea 3:1 from the Septuagint: “And Yahweh said to me, Go yet, and love a woman that loves evil things, an adulteress, even as Yahweh loves the children of Israel, and they have respect to strange gods, and love cakes of dried grapes.” The translation of this verse found in the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible by Abegg, Flint and Ulrich, has the Hebrew thus: “And Yahweh said to me, 'Go again, love a woman who has a lover and is an adulteress, even as Yahweh loves the children of Israel, though they turn unto other gods, and love raisin cakes...'”

 3:2  So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley:

 3:3  And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.

This also describes the first 100 years of America.

 3:4  For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:

As the whore would be without her lovers, which is what makes her a whore, then Israel would be without those symbols and institutions which are the substance of nationhood. And if the lovers are what made the woman a whore, then it is the offices of the kingdom or society that are the vehicle by which Israel the nation became a whore!

8655  teraphiym   ter-aw-feme'

Meaning: 1) idolatry, idols, image(s), teraphim, family idol 1a) a kind of idol used in household shrine or worship

The teraphim were the “household gods” found among the ancient Syrians, and also among the Romans and other branches of our race. In Rome they were called lares and penates, and the idols came to be seen as guardians of the household. Genesis chapter 31 gives us insight into the importance of the teraphim. Here is Genesis 31:19, where the KJV translates that very word as images: "And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images [teraphim] that were her father's." The teraphim were important to Rachel, because they were the symbols of the family inheritance. The child who possessed them evidently had a right to claim the family estate. Departing from the household of her father, Rachel took them for herself. Laban noticed they were missing in a short time. To Laban, it was important that his own sons - and not the children of his daughters – should have the inheritance. For this reason he had to have the teraphim. Therefore, after he had caught up with Jacob and Rachel, as Jacob and his wives and children departed Laban's house, and he searched Rachel's tent for them and could not find them, he was quite exasperated. When Jacob became disturbed at Laban's continued insistence, not realizing what Rachel did,  Laban begged that Jacob take an oath.

Therefore at Genesis 31:51-53 we read: “51 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this pillar, which I have cast betwixt me and thee; 52 This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this heap and this pillar unto me, for harm. 53 The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge betwixt us. And Jacob sware by the fear of his father Isaac.” Here it is evident, that if Jacob indeed possessed the teraphim, he was bound by the oath not to cross the pillar to take the inheritance away from Laban's sons. So the teraphim were the household symbols of inheritance.

0646  'ephowd   ay-fode'

Meaning: 1) ephod 1 priestly garment, shoulder-cape or mantle, outer garment:- worn by an ordinary priest and made of white stuff  2 worn by the high priest - more costly, woven of gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and linen threads provided with shoulder-pieces and a breast piece of like material, ornamented with gems and gold

The ephod was the garment of the priesthood. It was not only associated with the Levitical priesthood, as we see throughout the Old Testament, but also with pagan priesthoods, as it is evident in Judges chapters 17 and 18. Mentioned here with kings, princes, and teraphim-images, it is only representative of the religious aspect of nationhood. Discussing Hosea chapter 1, it became evident that while Israel as a people would always be preserved on the earth, Israel the nation was to be broken.

Hosea 1:4: “And Yahweh said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel. “

Isaiah said at 7:8: “within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.”

Ephraim is sybolic of the northern House of Israel.

The kings, the princes, the ephod which is a symbol of the priesthood, and the teraphim which are idol images, but were also used as symbols of familial inheritance, all of these things were symbols of Israel's nationhood, and the prophets had warned that the kingdom was to be broken. Furthermore, verse 5 reinforces the idea that these had to do with the dissolution of the kingdom.

Because the rulers and leaders of the people had caused the nation to sin, the people would be without the trappings and status of the kingdom as a part of their punishment. The children of Israel were for a long time in the dispersion without any of these things. While of course they had many men who fulfilled particular roles, they did not have the organized institutions which these symbols (ephod/teraphim) represent. After the great migrations from Mesopotamia into Asia and eventually Europe, it took them quite some time to again develop into a recognizably civil society.

 3:5  Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek Yahweh their God, and David their king; and shall fear Yahweh and His goodness in the latter days.

But what were the children of Israel to return to? Through Jeremiah the prophet Yahweh said of the old city of Jerusalem that “Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again” (Jer 19:11). At 2 Samuel 7:10, a scripture repeated in 1 Chronicles. Yahweh said “Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime.” Therefore, returning to Palestine is out of the question. Isaiah chapter 55 explains the return of Israel to Yahweh their God:

Isaiah 55:1-8: “1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto Me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. [Christ repeated these ideas often in reference to Himself, notably as it is recorded in John chapters 4 and 6.] 3 Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. [As Hosea says here, “5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek Yahweh their God, and David their king...”] 4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. 5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of Yahweh thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for He hath glorified thee. 6 Seek ye Yahweh while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto Yahweh, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. 8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith Yahweh.”

The children of Israel were not to return to some 9000-square-mile patch of sand in the desert. The children of Israel were to return to Yahweh their God, through David their King. Christ is the prophetic David. The children were regathered in America.

Ezekiel 37:24 states that “David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in My judgments, and observe My statutes, and do them.” Yahweh is the God of the whole earth, as we see it proclaimed in Zechariah 4:10 and Micah 4:13. The idea of limiting the domain or the efficacy of a god to a certain land is an ancient pagan idea which has no place in Christianity. It is much more important that the children of Israel return to their God, than to some patch of desert. Besides, that patch of sand could not possibly hold the innumerable seed of Abraham, the white race.

 

 

Hosea 4:1  Hear the word of Yahweh, ye children of Israel: for Yahweh hath a controversy with the

       inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

The national consciousness is manipulated when “truth” becomes whatever is politically expedient and therefore it is not really truth at all. This is why the apostle James warned us to despise the rich men of the world, who only sought to use their wealth so that they could rule over us and enslave us even further. One means of captivating us today is to use their wealth in order to purchase our academic and religious institutions and corrupt them so that they now teach what is politically expedient for the wealthy, rather than what is true and beneficial for the people.  Jeroboam was the first king of the House of Israel after the ten tribes had broken away from the rule of the House of Judah. The first thing he did was change religious “truth” for reason of political expedience, as described at 1 Kings 12:26-33

Jeroboam perverted the whole nation, so that he could maintain political control. Here in America, in 1913 with the Federal Reserve Act and related legislation, we handed over control of the economy of our nation to the international bankers, nearly all of whom happen to be Jewish. Today, a hundred years later, all so-called “Christian” churches are really peddling the political desires of their Jewish masters, and packaging them as truths in support of the false gods of Judaism.

 4:2  By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.

Willful wickedness.

These are the sins of the land which resulted from a departure from the commandments of Yahweh, and a turn to immoral paganism. The change of religion results in a change in the moral codices of the nation, and then a change in the behaviour of the people themselves.

The Masoretic (KJV) text here, at the end of the verse, has the phrase “and blood toucheth blood”. In the Hebrew, the word blood here appears in the plural.

Many times in Hebrew, the word for blood appears in the plural, and it is an idiomatic use of the word representing the idea of bloodshed. The context wherever the word for blood appears in the plural in the Old Testament is quite clear in that regard, that it refers to bloodshed, except here in this one verse. In this verse, it is clear from the context that the phrase “and blood toucheth blood” is related not to the sin of murder mentioned earlier in the passage, but rather to the sin of adultery which it follows. The Septuagint agrees with this assessment, and translates the passage a little more clearly, where Brenton somewhat accurately renders the Greek: “Cursing, and lying, and murder, and theft, and adultery abound in the land, and they mingle blood with blood.”

The mingling of blood with blood is not bloodshed here. Rather, it is a reference to adultery: the mingling of blood with blood is the result of race-mixing, and that too is tantamount to bloodshed because it destroys a race. Race-mixing is what happens when the children of Israel forsake the commandment of their God to be a separate people, and go following after the strange gods and the intercourse in trade and culture with the other nations and races. In the case of ancient Israel, it was mostly the Canaanites which were the focus of concern. Today it is expanded to include all of the world's non-White races as well.

 4:3  Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

 4:4  Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.

 4:5  Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.

The phrase “I will destroy thy mother” is, again, another way of saying that the kingdom will be broken. Each of us as individuals sin at diverse times. However when we as a nation generally depart from the commandments of God, we suffer depressions, and famines, and plagues, and various other trials. We become overrun with aliens and they steal our wealth. All of these things are among the ancient curses of disobedience described in Deuteronomy and Leviticus. It is not an evil God who persecutes us from the clouds of heaven. Rather, it is the inevitable result of our departure from His ways.

 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Ignorance.

 4:7  As they were increased, so they sinned against Me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.

1Samuel 2:30  Wherefore Yahweh God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before Me for ever: but now Yahweh saith, Be it far from Me; for them that honour Me I will honour, and they that despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.

Malachi 2:9  Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept My ways, but have been partial in the law.

 4:8  They eat up the sin of My people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.

 4:9  And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.

They did not pursue the truth. They had the ability to do so, and they followed their political leaders and priests instead. So for their punishment, they lost their kingdom, and their descendants were put away from the polity of God. Now they have reconciliation in Christ, and so do we, however once again today we as a people have neglected to pursue the truth. Rather than read their Bibles, our people worship the Jews, because that is what is politically expedient – in order that the Jews maintain the world hegemony which they have acquired through their assumption of a false identity and their imposition of the usury banking system upon all Christendom. If our people would read their Bibles, they may realize that the Jews are really the antichrist, and they are the eternal enemies of God who today are posing themselves to be gods. For this reason, under Jewish control, the world has been plunged into all sorts of corruption and perversion. Thus is the essence of Mystery Babylon, and we empower it when we fail to pursue the will of our God, and instead we follow the political desires of men.

 4:10  For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to Yahweh.

Leviticus 26:26  And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

 4:11  Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.

 4:12  My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.

Jeremiah 2:27  Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto Me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.

Isaiah 44:20  He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?

Our people today look for answers in all the wrong places. So rather than read the plain words of the Bible, and absorb the more austere moral lessons which it contains, they would rather seek for truth in places where they shall never find it: in the false gods of the Jews and the vain mysticism of the non-White races. If Confucius (and an apt play on that name is “confuse-us”) had ever done the Chinese any good, they would have developed a civil and efficient society apart from acquiring the technology and organization of the White man. If animism had done the African any good, they would not be living in dung-huts and using urine for bug repellant. If the idols of the Hindus and Buddhists and their vile yoga practices had done the Near East any good, they would not be living in total squalor in New Delhi and in Bangladesh. If Mohammed ever had the truth, then his followers would not be the backwards, uncivil and maniacal animals that they are today. When we go whoring after these idols, we become like the people who espouse them. According to Genesis 1:26-28, it can be argued that we should be the zookeepers, and instead we end up in bed with the monkeys.

 4:13  They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.

Idolatry.

Isaiah 1:29  For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.   (Pagan groves and high places)

 4:14  I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.

 4:15  Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, Yahweh liveth.

1Kings 12:29  And he (Jeroboam) set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan. (Golden calves)

Israel was to be sent out of the land for their sins, and by this time there was no way to avoid that fate.

 4:16  For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now Yahweh will feed them as a lamb in a large place.

Jeremiah 3:6  Yahweh said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.  (Groves, high places, worship of the gods)

The symbol of Ephraim, as the ten-plus tribes of the House of Israel would often be called from this point in Hosea, was an ox. The children of Israel under Jeroboam I had also turned to the worship of the golden calves, that same idolatry which they turned to at Sinai, and which they also carried into the Mediterranean in their travels, to Cyprus and to Crete and beyond. The golden calf cult was not removed under the partial reforms of Jehu, and persisted right to the end of the kingdom. So the backsliding heifer allegory is appropriate in several respects.

Hosea wrote “Now Yahweh will feed them as a lamb in a large place”. This is a prophecy that the children of Israel would be moved to a much larger land, away from the influences of the aliens and the enemies of God. This was the first step in the fulfillment of 2 Samuel 7:10, which said in the time of David that the children of Israel would be moved to another place. The first warning of the Assyrian deportations is found as early as Numbers chapter 24, where it is said that Asshur – the name of the eponymous ancestor of the Assyrians - would take the nation of Israel away captive.

 4:17  Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.   (Ephraim represents the northern kingdom of Israel)

Matthew 15:14  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

 4:18  Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.

 4:19  The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.

They would wallow in their idolatry until Yahweh should choose to feed them in that place to which He sent them. This happened, of course, when the dispersed Israelites, who eventually became the Germanic tribes, heard the Christian gospel. For some of them, that came before the third century, among the Alans, some of the Goths, and some of the Sakae. For others, it would not occur until the eighth or ninth centuries! Once having returned to Yahweh their God through Christianity, the children of Israel were indeed - for the most part - ashamed of their pagan practices. This will also go for those that realize that today's “churches” are masking the same practices. Judaism is not Christianity. The Jews are not Israel. And Jesus was certainly not a Jew.

 

 

Hosea 5:1  Hear ye this, O priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel; and give ye ear, O house of the

       king; for judgment is toward you, because ye have been a snare on Mizpah, and a net spread upon

       Tabor.

 5:2  And the revolters are profound to make slaughter, though I have been a rebuker of them all.

The political and religious leaders are those primarily responsible for the errors of the people.

Isaiah 29:15  Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from Yahweh, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

Isaiah 56:10-11

10  His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

11  Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

Ezekiel 34:2  Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

 5:3  I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from Me: for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, and Israel is defiled.

Amos 3:2  You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

 5:4  They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known Yahweh.

 5:5  And the pride of Israel doth testify to His face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them.

As Paul explained in his epistles, Yahweh God cannot “lose” His people. The Greek word so often translated as lost in the New Testament is a word that Liddell and Scott in their Greek English lexicon describe as meaning to be destroyed, ruined, or driven off from one's own homeland. These definitions perfectly describe the deported children of Israel, and these are the people to whom Christ was referring at Matthew 15:24 where He said “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” (Ez 34, Jer 50:6)

 5:6  They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek Yahweh; but they shall not find Him; He hath withdrawn Himself from them.

 5:7  They have dealt treacherously against Yahweh: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions.

Willful wickedness.

Jeremiah 3:20  Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with Me, O house of Israel, saith Yahweh.

They have “begotten strange children”. This corroborates the interpretation of the phrase “blood touches blood” in regard to race-mixing. The Word of God is true, and that the bastard children among our ancestors were not permitted to thrive among us. One place this promise is found is in the words of the prophet Amos, at Amos 9:9: “For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.” Yahweh promises that He would sift the House of Israel through those nations to which she was deported, to ancient Assyria and Persia and Media.

 5:8  Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah: cry aloud at Bethaven, after thee, O Benjamin.

 5:9  Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.

 5:10  The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: therefore I will pour out My wrath upon them like water.

Deuteronomy 19:14  Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's (kinsman's) landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that Yahweh thy God giveth thee to possess it.

 5:11  Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, because he willingly walked after the commandment.

'after' should have been translated 'away from'. Ephraim (northern tribes) willingly walked away from God's commandments.

 5:12  Therefore will I be unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.

 5:13  When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.   (2 Kings 15:19)

 5:14  For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.

 5:15  I will go and return to My place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek My face: in their affliction they will seek Me early.

And so it was, not long after Hosea wrote these words, that Israel and much of Judah began to be taken away in bondage by the Assyrians - a process which lasted from about 742 BC to about 676 BC.

 

 

Hosea's unique 'time' message.

In chapter 6 is given a remarkable 'three day' period.

It follows the passage in which Yahweh's favor is declared to be withdrawn. (Hos 5:6)

It is concerned with Israel to whom Hosea is referring all the time in his book.

Hosea is writing of the second coming of our Prince Yahshua.

Hosea 6:1  Come, and let us return unto Yahweh: for He hath torn, and He will heal us; He hath

       smitten, and He will bind us up.

Deuteronomy 32:39  See now that I, even I, am He, and there is no god with Me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of My hand.

Jeremiah 30:17  For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith Yahweh; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

 6:2  After two days will He revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight.

 6:3  Then shall we know, if we follow on to know Yahweh: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

This latter and former rain, or early and latter rain in the Septuagint, is symbolic of the two promised Messianic advents, and since we have seen the first, we should know with certainty that there shall be a second. This is also illustrated at Joel 2:23, which says: “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in Yahweh your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.” Hosea is also relating the latter and former rain to the awakening of the children of Israel mentioned in the previous verse. In the second chapter of Acts, Peter quoted from that same prophecy of Joel in relation to the coming of the New Covenant gospel. If therefore the spread of the gospel is the early or former rain, we must examine what that latter rain is going to be.

Talking with His disciples, we see the following exchange between them and Christ, at Matthew 17:10-13: “10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come? 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12 But I say unto you, That Elijah is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13 Then the disciples understood that He spake unto them of John the Baptist.”

Luke 1:17 says of John the Baptist, who is yet about to be born: “And he shall go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Prince.”

So Elijah shall come, and has come already, speaking of the spirit and power of Elijah – not necessarily of Elijah personally. The disciples understood that the Elijah that had come was represented by John the Baptist. But Christ also said that Elijah shall come, meaning at some future point. Therefore we see that the early rain, and the latter rain, are both precipitated by the spirit and power of Elijah – who is used as an allegory.

In Malachi chapter 4 we see the following: “1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith Yahweh of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith Yahweh of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Malachi chapter 3 talks about the first coming of Christ, and the promises and prophecies made there have been fulfilled in Christianity. However these things described in Malachi chapter 4 were never fulfilled with the early rain, in the first century or unto this day. This is the latter rain, that the hearts of the children are turned to the fathers, and the hearts of the fathers to the children. This describes a racial awakening. It describes a realization of the knowledge that we are indeed the children of the ancient Israelites, and that the covenants of God belong to us - to our race - and that we therefore have an obligation to safeguard them so that they may be passed on to our children, who must be children of that same race according to the Mosaic laws. The early rain is the spread of the Gospel, and the latter rain is our National awakening – the raising up of the people of Israel described in Hosea 6:2.

Some also see the former and latter rain as the Old and New Testaments.

 6:3  Then shall we know, if we follow on to know Yahweh: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Isaiah 54:13  And all thy children shall be taught of Yahweh; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

2Samuel 23:4  And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.

 6:4  O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.

 6:5  Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of My mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

 6:6  For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

The Septuagint has verse 5 to read: “Therefore have I mown down your prophets; I have slain them with the word of My mouth: and My judgment shall go forth as the light.” The goodness of Israel had evaporated like the morning dew, because the people were chasing idols and following the false prophets of the idols. A prophet is someone who speaks for a god, not necessarily for Yahweh the God of Israel.

Christ quoted this very passage of Hosea 6:6 in rebuttal to the legalism of the pharisees.

Matthew 9:13  But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Isaiah 1:11  To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me? saith Yahweh: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

 6:7  But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against Me.

 6:8  Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is polluted with blood.

 6:9  And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness.

How does this not still describe our priests (preachers) of today? The Septuagint has Hosea 6:9 to say: “And thy strength is that of a robber: the priests have hid the way, they have murdered the people of Shechem; for they have wrought iniquity in the house of Israel.” Our priests (preachers) murder our people by lying to them. It was the priests and the false prophets who were primarily responsible for teaching the people to race-mix, and so it is today. The priests were installed by the king, in the Old Kingdom, Jeroboam replaced the legitimate priests with those of his own, who would do his bidding. In order to keep political control, he replaced the true religion with one of idolatry. Today's Christian pastors have themselves surrendered to the commercial religion of multiculturalism and diversity, and they too once again murder our people daily – encouraging them to race-mix and seek after the false gods of Judaism. Teaching that Jesus is a Jew, and many other perversions of scripture.

 6:10  I have seen an horrible thing in the house of Israel: there is the whoredom of Ephraim, Israel is defiled.

 6:11  Also, O Judah, he hath set an harvest for thee, when I returned the captivity of My people.

Israel is defiled because they had “begotten strange children”, as it was said at Hosea 5:7

 

 

Hosea 7:1  When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the

       wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and the troop of

       robbers spoileth without.

The thief within – the aliens which we have let run roughshod throughout our nations, and the robbers without – those alien lands which now possess our technology and our debt-notes which the Jews have contrived for them in order to induce them against us. Today it is a little more sophisticated than it was in ancient times, but the problems are the same: we learn the ways of the heathen nations who do not have our moral ethics, and we fall into a state of decay.

 7:2  And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before My face.   (Jer 17:1)

 7:3  They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies.

When we repeat the propaganda that our masters fabricate for us, we please our masters. The Jews are happy with race-mixing, politically correct, obedient “gentile” cattle. The Jews are happy when they hear the made-up holocaust lies being repeated by the “goyim”. The Jews are happy when we follow along with the false idea that some evil arab terrorists were responsible for 9/11. The Jews are happy when we pronounce that “Jesus was a Jew”. The Jews have organized the IRS code in order to reward “churches” that teach the politically expedient falsehoods. These “churches” get tax benefits, and teach lies in exchange for retaining those benefits. Later on, they will indeed have to face the wrath of God! Ask your “church” if they are 501-C3.

 7:4  They are all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker, who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened.

Our sin is a national sin. We are indeed all adulterers, whether we like it or not. We have all bought the lies at one time or another, and so have our ancestors. We have all traded with the enemies of our God, and so have our ancestors. We all have something from China or Japan, which helped to put our brethren out of jobs.

 7:5  In the day of our king the princes have made him sick with bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.

The KJV the way it stands is easy to misinterpret. It is fitting to read this passage from the NAS, because it agrees with the Septuagint version: “On the day of our king, the princes became sick with the heat of wine; He stretched out his hand with scoffers,” Good leadership, of course, requires sober vigilance. Again, it is the failure of our rulers which ultimately causes the people to go astray.

 7:6  For they have made ready their heart like an oven, whiles they lie in wait: their baker sleepeth all the night; in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire.

 7:7  They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: there is none among them that calleth unto Me.

Isaiah 64:7  And there is none that calleth upon Your name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of You: for You hast hid Your face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

These same passages from the NAS: “6 For their hearts are like an oven as they approach their plotting; Their anger smolders all night, In the morning it burns like a flaming fire. 7 All of them are hot like an oven, And they consume their rulers; All their kings have fallen. None of them calls on Me.” Because of a lack of true godly leadership, the nation as a whole suffered the losses which resulted from warfare without, and immorality within.

 7:8  Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

Ephraim is a cake not turned, because he mixed himself with the other nations. A “cake not turned” is a cake which is half black!

You do not make steel bars stronger by mixing clay into the process, and the same is true of people. Here we see that diversity is odious to God. God hates diversity, and punishes us for it.

 7:9  Strangers have devoured his (Ephraim's) strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not.

Because we as a people collectively do not learn from history, we repeat it over and over.

 7:10  And the pride of Israel testifieth to His face: and they do not return to Yahweh their God, nor seek Him for all this.

 7:11  Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.

 7:12  When they shall go, I will spread My net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard.

The Israelites, rather than humbling themselves and repenting, arrogantly sought deliverance from the Assyrians through an alliance with Egypt. Yet Egypt was no salvation for them, and they ended up being taken away captive by the Assyrians, as God had willed. We also see that self-pride and vanity are factors in the national downfall.

Leviticus 26:14  But if ye will not hearken unto Me, and will not do all these commandments;

 7:13  Woe unto them! for they have fled from Me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against Me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against Me.

Those lies are the same lies we had seen mentioned in verse 3: “They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies.” The rulers are drunken with power, and the people have learned to repeat the same lies and propaganda (from the media, schools, and churches) which keep those rulers in power.

 7:14  And they have not cried unto Me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against Me.

Job 35:9-10

9  By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.

10  But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;

 7:15  Though I have bound and strengthened their arms, yet do they imagine mischief against Me.

 7:16  They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.

Psalm 78:56-57

56  Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not His testimonies:

57  But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

Egypt is a symbol of captivity.

If we today partake in all of the same sins, how can we be so arrogant as to think that we can escape the same punishments?

 

 

Hosea 8:1  Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of Yahweh,

       because they have transgressed My covenant, and trespassed against My law.

Deuteronomy 28:49  Yahweh shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;  (Assyrians)

Jeremiah 4:13  Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.

 8:2  Israel shall cry unto Me, My God, we know thee.

 8:3  Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.

 8:4  They have set up kings, but not by Me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.

Therefore we see that democracy is ungodly.

 8:5  Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; Mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency?

“Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off”, this saying is an allegory which tells us first that the idols of the people were not able to save them, and then that they were cast off by their true God on account of those idols.

“How long will it be ere they attain to innocency?” is a rhetorical question which asks how long it will be before the people are able to cease from their wrongdoing.

Jeremiah 13:27  I have seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom, and thine abominations on the hills in the fields (groves). Woe unto thee, O Jerusalem! wilt thou not be made clean? when shall it once be?

 8:6  For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.

 8:7  For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.

The whirlwind is the wind which blows back around in a circle. It is another way of saying that we reap just what we have sown: that our national calamity is a result of our sinful ways.

Proverbs 22:8  He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.

 8:8  Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles (Nations) as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.

2Kings 17:6  In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.

Jeremiah 22:28  Is this man Coniah  (the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah) a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not?

Among the Nations: the children of Israel were taken away captive and relocated in northern Mesopotamia and along the Black and Caspian Seas. These were the nations of the Medes, Persians, Assyrians, and other related white peoples of Genesis chapter 10. It is from these places that after a few generations they would emerge as Kimmerians, Scythians, Sakae, Parthians, and the other names by which they have been called.

 8:9  For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.

Jeremiah 2:24  A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her.

Ezekiel 16:33-34

33  They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.

34  And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

 8:10  Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.

 8:11  Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.

 8:12  I have written to him the great things of My law, but they were counted as a strange thing.

Deuteronomy 4:6,8

6  Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

8  And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?  NONE but America. We are true Israel.

 8:13  They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of Mine offerings, and eat it; but Yahweh accepteth them not; now will He remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.

Zechariah 7:6  And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?

Egypt here is a symbol for captivity, and Israel would for a time return to captivity, being under the yoke of the Assyrians for over a hundred years. After the tribes began to disperse, some remained under the yoke of the Babylonians and Persians for several centuries longer.

 8:14  For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.

Deuteronomy 32:18  Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

Isaiah 29:23-24

23  But when he (Jacob) seeth his children, the work of Mine hands, in the midst of Him (Christ), they shall sanctify My name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.

24  They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

Jeremiah 17:27  But if ye will not hearken unto Me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.

 

 

Hosea 9:1  Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as other people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God,

       thou hast loved a reward upon every cornfloor.

Jeremiah 44:16-17

16  As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of Yahweh, we will not hearken unto thee.

17  But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.

Being disobedient is easy when you see no punishment.

 9:2  The floor and the winepress shall not feed them, and the new wine shall fail in her.

 9:3  They shall not dwell in Yahweh's land; but Ephraim shall return to Egypt (captivity), and they shall eat unclean things in Assyria.

 9:4  They shall not offer wine offerings to Yahweh, neither shall they be pleasing unto Him: their sacrifices shall be unto them as the bread of mourners; all that eat thereof shall be polluted: for their bread for their soul (teaching) shall not come into the house of Yahweh.

Jeremiah 6:20  To what purpose cometh there to Me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto Me.

They are unrecognizable as children of light when they go after other gods and lusts.

 9:5  What will ye do in the solemn day, and in the day of the feast of Yahweh?

 9:6  For, lo, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt (captivity) shall gather them up, Memphis shall bury them: the pleasant places for their silver, nettles shall possess them: thorns shall be in their tabernacles.

 9:7  The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.

Micah 2:11  If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.

 9:8  The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: but the prophet is a snare of a fowler in all his ways, and hatred in the house of his God.

 9:9  They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gibeah: therefore He will remember their iniquity, He will visit their sins.

The references to the prophet must be references to false prophets, of Israel's false religions, since Israel's idolatry is still the scope of the context.

The days of Gibeah:

In Gibeah a woman, a concubine of a Levite traveler, was raped and murdered by “men of Belial”. Belial is a word which can infer that one is of mixed race. It comes from a word which means worthlessness, but that word in turn comes from a word which means mixed. If something is worthless, there must be a reason for it!

The entire tribe of Benjamin supported the evil deed, by defending these men of Belial against those who would avenge the woman. This led to a civil war, and most of Benjamin was destroyed as a result. The iniquity of Israel which Hosea speaks of is every bit as horrible as the iniquity at Gibeah, and we see a that strong connection is being made between the men of Belial, the strangers in Ephraim, and the sin of Israel for which the kingdom is here being judged by God. Race-mixing is indeed the worst of all sins. At Gibeah the perverted crimes of race-mixed men were then defended by the people, which is a horrible situation. It is also a situation that we have once again today, where most people would again actually defend someone's “right” to be a sexual deviant, a race-mixer, or to engage in sexual promiscuity.

 9:10  I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.

Numbers 25:3  And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of Yahweh was kindled against Israel.

Psalm 106:28  They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

This again is a reference to race-mixing, where in Numbers chapters 24 and 25 the men of Israel are described as having joined themselves to Baalpeor, and to the daughters of Moab. Most Christians are ignorant, that ancient Baal worship included fertility rituals and public acts of sexual intercourse. This event set off a plague among the Israelites in which 24,000 men died in a single day. The plagued was stayed only when Phinehas slew one of the princes of Israel who had joined in the race-mixing, along with the woman whom he was coupled with.

 9:11  As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.

 9:12  Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!

Deuteronomy 31:17  Then My anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?

 9:13  Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.

Tyre was also a city of Israel.

 9:14  Give them, O Yahweh: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.

Luke 23:29  For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.

 9:15  All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of Mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.

Isaiah 1:23  Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

 9:16  Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.

 9:17  My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto Him: and they shall be

      wanderers among the nations.

Appropriately, Gilgal is a place, but the name means a wheel, or rolling. After the deportations the Scythian tribes did just that for ten centuries. Gilgal was an ancient seat of the prophets (i.e. 2 Kings 4:38), and the home of Samuel and of Saul. Apparently it later became a place for false prophets and idolatry, which can be seen in Amos chapters 4 and 5.

And a great number of our people, the Germanic tribes, indeed wandered for as many as a thousand years in Asia and into Europe. Today our people still wander, metaphorically, from one false idea to the next, and they never have a solution. Yet in the chapters of Hosea yet to come, there is still a message of hope to be found.

 

 

Hosea 10:1  Israel is an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit unto himself: according to the multitude

       of his fruit he hath increased the altars; according to the goodness of his land they have made

       goodly images.

Nahum 2:2  For Yahweh hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their vine branches.

Israel is an empty vine. This allegory is much like the one we see concerning Israel in Isaiah chapter 56, which uses the allegory of a dry tree.

Isaiah 56:3: “Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to Yahweh, speak, saying, Yahweh hath utterly separated me from His people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.”

The son of the stranger here represents the descendants of those same outcasts of Israel, who were estranged by Yahweh and therefore were as good as strangers to Yahweh. While the nation was outcast, the individuals who kept His ways during the estrangement were here promised an ultimate reward.

These are four passages from here in Hosea which illustrate that Israel became as a “eunuch” to Yahweh, when the nation was cast off, and therefore individual Israelites are allegorically the eunuchs of Isaiah 56, and each of these verses promises a reconciliation between Yahweh and those very same children of Israel:

Hosea 1:10: “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not My people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. “

During the period of alienation from Yahweh, the children of Israel were not recognized as children to Him. This is an allegory, and it is also promised that nevertheless one day it would be explained to those very same people that they are indeed His children.

Hosea 2:4-7: “4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms. 5 For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink. 6 Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths. [In other words, the captivity of Israel will not return to Palestine.] 7 And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband [Christ]; for then was it better with me than now.”

Again, we see prophesied an estrangement, and then a reconciliation. The prophecy of Daniel concerning Christ, at Daniel 9:24: “24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression [to finally end the ancient nation], and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” The apostle John spoke of that anointing of the most holy, where he said at 1 John 2:27: “And the anointing which you have received from Him, it abides in you and you have no need that one should teach you, but as His anointing teaches us concerning all things and is true and is not a lie, then just as He has taught you, you abide in Him.” The purpose of Christ is to offer reconciliation, and to offer His anointing to those of His people who choose to follow Him.

Hosea 3:4-5: “4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim [all the symbols of their national heritage]: 5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek Yahweh their God, and David their king; and shall fear Yahweh and His goodness in the latter days.”

Again we see the promise of the reconciliation of Israel to God. And Paul explains that to be his ministry, at 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 where he states: “18 But all things from Yahweh, who has reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and is giving the service of reconciliation to us. 19 How that Yahweh was within Christ reconciling the Society to Himself, not accounting their offenses to them, and placing in us the word of that reconciliation.” Paul knew the nations he went to, that they were the “lost sheep” of the House of Israel, and he knew that his message was one of reconciliation between Israel and God, as promised in the prophets and as he explains throughout his epistles.

Hosea 9:12: “Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!”

The children of Israel were as eunuchs to God, until the promised reconciliation in Christ, which Daniel 9:24 says is “to make reconciliation for iniquity”.

 

Hosea 10:2  Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: He shall break down their altars, He shall spoil their images.

1Kings 18:21  And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if Yahweh be God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

Matthew 6:24  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.

 10:3  For now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not Yahweh; what then should a king do to us?

 10:4  They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant: thus judgment springeth up as hemlock in the furrows of the field.

In 2 Samuel 8 it is described how the children of Israel, who had God for their king, wanted earthly kings, like the surrounding nations had. Yahweh warned them of much of the treachery that earthly kings would do, and they did not heed His warning, persisting in their own devices. Here in Hosea we see that earthly kings would make false oaths, treacherous covenants, and judgment would come because of those things.

 10:5  The inhabitants of Samaria shall fear because of the calves of Bethaven: for the people thereof shall mourn over it, and the priests thereof that rejoiced on it, for the glory thereof, because it is departed from it.

In other words, for these reasons the priests shall also mourn for the loss of their pagan idols.

 10:6  It shall be also carried unto Assyria for a present to king Jareb: Ephraim shall receive shame, and Israel shall be ashamed of his own counsel.

 10:7  As for Samaria, her king is cut off as the foam upon the water.

 10:8  The high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be destroyed: the thorn and the thistle shall come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on us.

The golden-calf idols of Bethaven, a name which means “house of vanity”, were to be carried off as booty to Assyria.

This is the second time in Hosea that we have seen the king of Assyria called after the word “jareb”, the other being in Hosea 5:13. The word in Hebrew means contender, and need not be a personal name, but seems to merely describe the role for which Assyria was elevated by Yahweh and chosen to play in history at this time.

The “high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel” shall be destroyed. Aven here is a play on words in contrast to Bethaven, and the word, meaning vanity, refers to the vanity of the places of idol-worship. The people, wishing that the mountains could bury them, would rather die than go into captivity.

 10:9  O Israel, thou hast sinned from the days of Gibeah: there they stood: the battle in Gibeah against the children of iniquity did not overtake them.

Once again Gibeah is used as an example of the sin of Israel. This is the last mention of Gibeah in Scripture. At Hosea 9:9 Yahweh said “They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gibeah: therefore he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sins.”

The mention of the “days of Gibeah” is a reference to the civil war which was caused when a woman, a concubine of a Levite traveler, was raped and murdered by “men of Belial” in Gibeah, which was in the land of Benjamin. The tribe of Benjamin defended these men of Belial against those who would avenge the woman. The result was that at first the other tribes of Israel took heavy losses, but ultimately most of Benjamin was destroyed.

 10:10  It is in My desire that I should chastise them; and the people shall be gathered against them, when they shall bind themselves in their two furrows.

Jeremiah 16:15-17

15  But, Yahweh liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither He had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.

16  Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith Yahweh, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

17  For Mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from My face, neither is their iniquity hid from Mine eyes.

 10:10  It is in My desire that I should chastise them; and the people shall be gathered against them, when they shall bind themselves in their two furrows.

If the appropriate reading is two furrows, then the reference is to the Assyrian and coming Babylonian captivities. But the NAS has this last clause from a marginal reading, When they are bound for their double guilt. That agrees with the Septuagint which has “when they are chastened for their two sins”, where the word is actually injustices in the Greek. What the two injustices may be is arguable. In context, in the first verse of the chapter Israel is criticized for two things, where it says of Israel that “according to the multitude of his fruit he hath increased the altars; according to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images.” The primary injustice – which leads to all other sin – is the acceptance of the false gods of the other nations.

 10:11  And Ephraim is as an heifer that is taught, and loveth to tread out the corn; but I passed over upon her fair neck: I will make Ephraim to ride; Judah shall plow, and Jacob shall break his clods.

 10:12  Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek Yahweh, till He come and rain righteousness upon you.

Jeremiah 4:3  For thus saith Yahweh to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

 10:13  Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.

Humanism.

Galatians 6:7-8

7  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

They trusted in themselves, and not in God. They created their own moral climate, rather than live by the word of their God. The Septuagint has verse 11: “Ephraim is a heifer taught to love victory, but I will come upon the fairest part of her neck: I will mount Ephraim; I will pass over Judah in silence; Jacob shall prevail against him.” This repeats the already-promised continuance of the Kingdom of Judah, while Ephraim - representing the rest of Israel - shall ride, into captivity.

However where Septuagint has in verse 11 the phrase “Jacob shall prevail against him”, meaning against Ephraim, the King James has “Jacob shall break his clods”. The literal translation is practically nonsensical. Ephraim has a multitude of sins, and is deserving of death. Ephraim loves his sin, where the allegory is that “Ephraim is as an heifer that is taught, and loveth to tread out the corn. Yet although Ephraim deserves death for his sin, Jacob shall prevail against him, meaning that the promises which Yahweh made to Jacob shall prevail over anything which Ephraim does. The seed of Israel is preserved not for themselves, but for Yahweh, on account of His promises to the fathers. In verses 12 and 13, Ephraim is once again encouraged to seek Yahweh God, and if indeed he does, he shall yet be rewarded in spite of the sins that had been committed.

Ephraim represents the 10 northern dispersed tribes of Israel.

 10:14  Therefore shall a tumult arise among thy people, and all thy fortresses shall be spoiled, as Shalman spoiled Betharbel in the day of battle: the mother (the kingdom) was dashed in pieces upon her children.

 10:15  So shall Bethel do unto you because of your great wickedness: in a morning shall the king of Israel utterly be cut off.

Shalman seems to be short for the Assyrian king Shalmaneser, who is described as having invaded Israel and having taken away many captives in 2 Kings chapters 17 and 18.

Beth-Arbel means "house of God's Ambush". Many commentators assume it to be a place, but it cannot be identified and it is not necessarily a place. It may only indicate that the Assyrian conquest of Israel was indeed the will of God.

Verse 15 seems to be in error in the King James Version. Bethel is in Israel, and will not be doing anything to Israel. The NAS has it “Thus it will be done to you at Bethel because of your great wickedness. At dawn the king of Israel will be completely cut off.” The Septuagint has Hosea 10:15 “thus will I do to you, O house of Israel, because of the unrighteousness of your sins.” Either of those readings better fits the context and history of the chapter.

 

 

Hosea 11:1  When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called My son out of Egypt.

here in Hosea it is evident that the words clearly and primarily refer to the nation of Israel. Figuratively as a nation Israel is often depicted as the bride of Yahweh, but here figuratively Israel the nation is depicted as the son of Yahweh, which is also true of the children of Israel both collectively and as individuals. This applies to Christ as well.

Exodus 4:22  And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith Yahweh, Israel is My son, even My firstborn:

 11:2  As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.

There seems to be some pronoun confusion here. The Septuagint more clearly has this verse: “As I called them, so they departed from My presence: they sacrificed to Baalim, and burnt incense to graven images.” No sooner, coming out of Egypt, than when the children of Israel encountered other peoples did they quickly follow their ways, and depart from Yahweh their God for the enticements of Baal worship.

 11:3  I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.

 11:4  I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.

The Septuagint has Hosea 11:3: “Yet I bound the feet of Ephraim, I took him on My arm; but they knew not that I healed them.” Even coming out of the captivity of Egypt and the wars and conquests of Canaan, the people did not put things in their proper perspective, and give appropriate honor to Yahweh their God for their success.

Deuteronomy 1:31  And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that Yahweh thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place.

 11:5  He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.

Having strayed from the God which they owed their very existence to, they refused to return, meaning to repent of their wickedness. The Geneva Bible has convert.

 11:6  And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and devour them, because of their own counsels.

 11:7  And My people are bent to backsliding from Me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt him.

Judgement is a result of sin. Sin inevitably leads to judgement.

 11:8  How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? how shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make thee as Admah? how shall I set thee as Zeboim? Mine heart is turned within Me, My repentings are kindled together.

These questions are all rhetorical. The second question asks how Israel could possibly be saved. The other questions ask how Israel could possibly be destroyed. Admah and Zeboim were among the wicked Canaanite cities of the plain that had been destroyed along with Sodom and Gomorrah. The quagmire is due to Yahweh's own honor: for He keeps both His laws, by which Ephraim should die, and His promises, which preceded the laws, and on account of which Ephraim must live.

Quagmire- n.  Soft wet land, which has a surface firm enough to bear a person, but which shakes or yields under the feet.

[that is, quake-mire.]

QUAKE, v.t. To frighten; to throw into agitation.

QUAKE, n. A shake; a trembling; a shudder; a tremulous agitation.

MIRE, v.t. To plunge and fix in mire; to set or stall in mud. We say, a horse, an ox or a carriage is mired, when it has sunk deep into mud and its progress is stopped.

1. To soil or daub with mud or foul matter.

MIRE, v.i. To sink in mud, or to sink so deep as to be unable to move forward.

Jeremiah 9:7  Therefore thus saith Yahweh of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of My people?

 11:9  I will not execute the fierceness of Mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city.

Yahweh being God, He shall find a way to preserve Ephraim, in spite of Ephraim himself.

Numbers 23:19  God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?

 11:10  They shall walk after Yahweh: He shall roar like a lion: when He shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west (Christendom).

 11:11  They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt (captivity), and as a dove out of the land of Assyria: and I will place them in their houses, saith Yahweh.

The Septuagint reads verse 11: “They shall be amazed and fly as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of the Assyrians: and I will restore them to their houses, saith Yahweh.”

 11:12  Ephraim compasseth Me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.

We saw in the previous chapter of Hosea the reference to Shalmaneser, and to events which occurred in the days of Hoshea the last king of Israel. During this same period, Hezekiah is the ruling king in Judah, and we see in Hosea 1:1 that the time of his prophecy ends while Hezekiah is the king of Judah. Here we are told by the prophet that Judah during this period is faithful to Yahweh their God, and 2 Kings chapter 18 corroborates all of this for us.

2 Kings 18:1-7: 1 Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign. 2 Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Abi, the daughter of Zachariah. 3 And he did that which was right in the sight of Yahweh, according to all that David his father did. 4 He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. 5 He trusted in Yahweh God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him. 6 For he clave to Yahweh, and departed not from following Him, but kept His commandments, which Yahweh commanded Moses. 7 And Yahweh was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.

With Hezekiah's ruling the kingdom of Judah righteously at this time, we see it fulfilled that “Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints”. So the kingdom of Judah was spared total destruction at the hand of the Assyrians, and continued for many decades after. However a great number of Judah had already been taken by the Assyrians, which fulfilled other prophecies since Judah is indeed a part of Israel.

 

 

Hosea 12:1  Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind: he daily increaseth lies and desolation; and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt.

2Kings 17:4  And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year: therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.

Hosea 2:5, 3:1, and 8:7-11 it is explained that Israel's national sin was related to Israel's desire for foreign trade:

Ephraim sought out trade and discourse with Assyria and with Egypt, and therefore Yahweh punished Ephraim by giving the nation over to Assyria and back into the captivity that was suffered anciently in Egypt. Ephraim sewed the wind and reaped the whirlwind. Ephraim feeds on that wind (the trade winds), and does not look to Yahweh his God for sustenance. Today China is our Assyria. The world is our Egypt. Because we forsook Yahweh's commandment to be a separate people, we are held captive by Mystery Babylon: the great satanic international mercantile beast system, because we sought the trade of other peoples, thereby respecting the false gods of those peoples.

 12:2  Yahweh hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will He recompense him.

We see Judah is not out of scope, but that Yahweh would deal with Judah separately. The reference to Jacob is a reminder that all of Israel, Ephraim and Judah, would be punished for their iniquity.

 12:3  He (Jacob) took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God:   (Gen 25:26, 32:28)

 12:4  Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us;   (Gen 28:12)

The name Jacob comes from a Hebrew phrase which means "heel holder" or metaphorically "supplanter".

Because the name Jacob may mean "supplanter", when Jacob received the blessing from his father, Esau said “Is not he rightly named Jacob?” Esau then plotted to kill Jacob for what had happened, because he saw that Jacob had supplanted him. Yet Esau should of realized that Jacob's supplanting of him in the birthright and the blessing was Providential, because of his own actions resulting from his demonstrated contempt for his birthright and blessings. Jacob was not really to blame for Esau's losing these things, Esau himself was.

12:4  Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us;

Jacob obeyed his parents, cared for his birthright, and did as he was told.

 12:5  Even Yahweh God of hosts; Yahweh is his memorial.

 12:6  Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.

 12:7  He is a merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand: he loveth to oppress.

In verse 7, 'He is', it italicized, meaning it was added. The merchants were Canaanites. Jews who oppress and deceive.

The Hebrew word for Canaan was originally from a root which meant to humiliate or vanquish, but apparently became synonymous with the idea of trafficking at some point in ancient Hebrew history. That alone should tell us just who the merchants of the earth truly are. Verse 7 here may mean more than what it appears to say, and here are readings from various sources:

GNV, Hosea 12:7 He is Canaan: the balances of deceit are in his hand: he loueth to oppresse.

LXX, Hosea 12:7 As for Chanaan, in his hand is a balance of unrighteousness: he has loved to tyrannize.

NAS, Hosea 12:7 A merchant, in whose hands are false balances, He loves to oppress.

The NAS is seemingly the most literal, but the pronoun whose is added, and it is not necessarily the most correct. The Septuagint is quite literal and correct, speaking of the Greek. Overall the sentence seems to be ambiguous, however that may be purposely so. It was the prospect of Jacob's mixing with the Canaanites which his parents feared most, and here the descendants of Jacob have begun to do that very thing, for which they are also going to be punished.

 12:8  And Ephraim said, Yet I am become rich, I have found me out substance: in all my labours they shall find none iniquity in me that were sin.

 12:9  And I that am Yahweh thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.   (Lev 23:42)

Israel was to be a separate people, and they would obtain the endless blessings of God. Yet Israel turned to trade and intercourse with the despised peoples of the earth, as all the other Genesis 10 nations had already done, and therefore Israel would lose all of the wealth it had gained in this manner. Israel became a merchandising nation. "A merchant shall hardly keep himself from doing wrong; and an huckster shall not be freed from sin." - Sirach 26:29

 12:10  I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

2Kings 17:13  Yet Yahweh testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep My commandments and My statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by My servants the prophets.

So we have a wealth of recorded prophets around this time, notably Isaiah, Amos, Jonah, and Joel, in addition to Hosea. Micah and Nahum followed very shortly after, and they were followed shortly after by Habakkuk and Zephaniah.

 12:11  Is there iniquity in Gilead? surely they are vanity: they sacrifice bullocks in Gilgal; yea, their altars are as heaps in the furrows of the fields.

The sacrifices would do the nation no good, its punishment for its iniquity is sealed, and there is no help except for any mercy which Yahweh their God may offer them in their captivity.

 12:12  And Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served (Laban) for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.   (Gen 28:5)

 12:13  And by a prophet (Moses) Yahweh brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet (Joshua) was he preserved.   (Ex 12:50)

 12:14  Ephraim provoked him to anger most bitterly: therefore shall he leave his blood upon him, and his reproach shall his Lord return unto him.

Israel was delivered from the captivity in Egypt through the hands of Yahweh's prophet Moses, and Israel was preserved in the land of Canaan through the hands of Yahweh's prophet Joshua. Now Israel is being delivered into Assyrian captivity, and is warned by Yahweh's prophet, Hosea. The idea of bitterness in Hebrew was used metaphorically of rebellion. Therefore the beginning of verse 14 may be rendered “Ephraim provoked to anger most rebelliously”.

 

 

Hosea 13:1  When Ephraim spake trembling, he exalted himself in Israel; but when he offended in Baal, he died.

James 4:10: “Humble yourselves in the sight of Yahweh, and he shall lift you up.” Submitting oneself to the will of God, that is true humility. When we submit ourselves to Yahweh God, He exalts us. When we rebel against His Word, He humbles us.

 13:2  And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.

There will be no healing of any Christian nation until the television, the movies, the magazines, the newspapers, the pulp novels, schooling, today's “churches”, and anything else that promotes decadence and this new Baal worship are gone from the homes of Christians everywhere. We must cast off our idols before we can ever expect the mercy of our God.

 13:3  Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the early dew that passeth away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney.

Israel will be punished severely, however they will not be destroyed altogether.

Daniel 2:35  Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

 13:4  Yet I am Yahweh thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but Me: for there is no saviour beside Me.   (Is 43:11)

 13:5  I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.

Deuteronomy 2:7  For Yahweh thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: He knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years Yahweh thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.

 13:6  According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten Me.

In good times, we easily forget about our God. In good times, we seek profligacy and wantonness. In hard times or in times of crisis, only then do we see calls for prayer and repentance. This is our own most common form of hypocrisy. If we had a humble and repentant attitude all of the time, we would not so readily be led off into sin.

 13:7  Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them:

 13:8  I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.

All of our wars and other travails which we have suffered throughout our history are due to our national disobedience and rebellion from our God.

 13:9  O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in Me is thine help.

 13:10  I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?

 13:11  I gave thee a king in Mine anger, and took him away in My wrath.

1Samuel 8:7  And Yahweh said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.

Our ancient ancestors rejected Yahweh God as King, and sought an earthly king. We have it now, in our documented history, that no matter what government of man we set up, it becomes corrupt, because man cannot fashion a perfect government.

 13:12  The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid.

 13:13  The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children.

The words “the place” are an interpolation of the King James translators. Here we shall read two alternate versions, the NAS and Brenton's Septuagint, which is a fair translation of the Greek in this instance:

NAS Hosea 13:13 The pains of childbirth come upon him; He is not a wise son, For it is not the time that he should delay at the opening of the womb.

LXE Hosea 13:13 Pains as of a woman in travail shall come upon him: he is thy wise son, because he shall not stay in [or abide in] the destruction of thy children.

Ephraim, the name standing for the Israelites of the divided kingdom, had been destroying his children with his idolatry. Here, with either reading, there is a promise that Ephraim would be forced to cease from this behavior, that his children are not destroyed. The promise of future children for Israel is seen in Isaiah 66:8: “Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”

Isaiah 13:8  And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.

The children described here by Isaiah are all the tribes of the dispersion, which soon after appear in European history as the Parthian and Scythian and Kimmerian and Saxon Germanic people.

 13:14  I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from Mine eyes.

Where the King James version has repentance, the NAS has compassion, and the Septuagint Greek consolation. However here the subject is not Israel, but death and the grave. This too, is both a Messianic prophecy and a promise of restoration to the obedient of Israel.

1Corinthians 15:54  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

 13:15  Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come, the wind of Yahweh shall come up from the wilderness, and his spring shall become dry, and his fountain shall be dried up: he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.

Jeremiah 4:11  At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of My people, not to fan, nor to cleanse,

 13:16  Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.

This is an immediate prophecy concerning ancient Israel, and its destruction at the hands of the Assyrians.

 

 

Hosea 14:1  O Israel, return unto Yahweh thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.

 14:2  Take with you words, and turn to Yahweh: say unto Him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

Both the Septuagint Greek and the NAS render the Hebrew word for calves metaphorically, as fruit. The phrase may be a double-entendre, referring also to the calves which were idols in Israel, that if Yahweh were to remove the iniquity, His people were also to remit to Him by removing the idolatry from their mouths.

 14:3  Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.

Idols have no power to grant either salvation or mercy.

 14:4  I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for Mine anger is turned away from him.

 14:5  I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

Proverbs 19:12  The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.

 14:6  His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

Psalm 52:8  But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

Lebanon was, at one time, a much more fertile place than it is now. In the ancient Epic of Gilgamesh, a piece of literature perhaps 4000 years old, Lebanon is described as a vast and thick forest of cedars stretching all the way to the seacoast. The Biblical phrase “cedars of Lebanon” made a lot more sense at that time than it does now.

 14:7  They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

Psalm 91:1  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 14:8  Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From Me is thy fruit found.

This happened, when the Germanic tribes accepted Christianity, and especially with the Reformation when the idols of Roman Catholicism were done away with.

 14:9  Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of Yahweh are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

Proverbs 10:29  The way of Yahweh is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
