The call of Abram
16 And Abram came to his father's house and saw twelve gods standing there in their temples, and the anger of Abram was kindled when he saw these images in his father's house.
17 And Abram said, As Yahweh liveth these images shall not remain in my father's house; so shall Yahweh who created me do unto me if in three days' time I do not break them all.
18 And Abram went from them, and his anger burned within him. And Abram hastened and went from the chamber to his father's outer court, and he found his father sitting in the court, and all his servants with him, and Abram came and sat before him.
19 And Abram asked his father, saying, Father, tell me where is God who created heaven and earth, and all the sons of men upon earth, and who created you and me. And Terah answered his son Abram and said, Behold those who created us are all with us in the house.
20 And Abram said to his father, My lord, shew them to me I pray you; and Terah brought Abram into the chamber of the inner court, and Abram saw, and behold the whole room was full of gods of wood and stone, twelve great images and others less than they without number.
21 And Terah said to his son, Behold these are they which made all you seest upon earth, and which created me and you, and all mankind.
22 And Terah bowed down to his gods, and he then went away from them, and Abram, his son, went away with him.
23 And when Abram had gone from them he went to his mother and sat before her, and he said to his mother, Behold, my father has shown me those who made heaven and earth, and all the sons of men.
24 Now, therefore, hasten and fetch a kid from the flock, and make of it savory meat, that I may bring it to my father's gods as an offering for them to eat; perhaps I may thereby become acceptable to them.
25 And his mother did so, and she fetched a kid, and made savory meat thereof, and brought it to Abram, and Abram took the savory meat from his mother and brought it before his father's gods, and he drew nigh to them that they might eat; and Terah his father, did not know of it.
26 And Abram saw on the day when he was sitting amongst them, that they had no voice, no hearing, no motion, and not one of them could stretch forth his hand to eat.
27 And Abram mocked them, and said, Surely the savory meat that I prepared has not pleased them, or perhaps it was too little for them, and for that reason they would not eat; therefore tomorrow I will prepare fresh savory meat, better and more plentiful than this, in order that I may see the result.
28 And it was on the next day that Abram directed his mother concerning the savory meat, and his mother rose and fetched three fine kids from the flock, and she made of them some excellent savory meat, such as her son was fond of, and she gave it to her son Abram; and Terah his father did not know of it.
29 And Abram took the savory meat from his mother, and brought it before his father's gods into the chamber; and he came nigh unto them that they might eat, and he placed it before them, and Abram sat before them all day, thinking perhaps they might eat.
30 And Abram viewed them, and behold they had neither voice nor hearing, nor did one of them stretch forth his hand to the meat to eat.
31 And in the evening of that day in that house Abram was clothed with the spirit of God.
32 And he called out and said, Woe unto my father and this wicked generation, whose hearts are all inclined to vanity, who serve these idols of wood and stone which can neither eat, smell, hear nor speak, who have mouths without speech, eyes without sight, ears without hearing, hands without feeling, and legs which cannot move; like them are those that made them and that trust in them.
33 And when Abram saw all these things his anger was kindled against his father, and he hastened and took a hatchet in his hand, and came unto the chamber of the gods, and he broke all his father's gods.
34 And when he had done breaking the images, he placed the hatchet in the hand of the great god which was there before them, and he went out; and Terah his father came home, for he had heard at the door the sound of the striking of the hatchet; so Terah came into the house to know what this was about.
35 And Terah, having heard the noise of the hatchet in the room of images, ran to the room to the images, and he met Abram going out.
36 And Terah entered the room and found all the idols fallen down and broken, and the hatchet in the hand of the largest, which was not broken, and the savory meat which Abram his son had made was still before them.
37 And when Terah saw this his anger was greatly kindled, and he hastened and went from the room to Abram.
38 And he found Abram his son still sitting in the house; and he said to him, What is this work you hast done to my gods?
39 And Abram answered Terah his father and he said, Not so my lord, for I brought savory meat before them, and when I came nigh to them with the meat that they might eat, they all at once stretched forth their hands to eat before the great one had put forth his hand to eat.
40 And the large one saw their works that they did before him, and his anger was violently kindled against them, and he went and took the hatchet that was in the house and came to them and broke them all, and behold the hatchet is yet in his hand as you seest.
41 And Terah's anger was kindled against his son Abram, when he spoke this; and Terah said to Abram his son in his anger, What is this tale that you hast told? Thou speakest lies to me.
42 Is there in these gods spirit, soul or power to do all you hast told me? Are they not wood and stone, and have I not myself made them, and canst you speak such lies, saying that the large god that was with them smote them? It is you that didst place the hatchet in his hands, and then sayest he smote them all.
43 And Abram answered his father and said to him, And how canst you then serve these idols in whom there is no power to do any thing? Can those idols in which you trustest deliver you? can they hear your prayers when you callest upon them? can they deliver you from the hands of your enemies, or will they fight your battles for you against your enemies, that you shouldst serve wood and stone which can neither speak nor hear?
44 And now surely it is not good for you nor for the sons of men that are connected with you, to do these things; are you so silly, so foolish or so short of understanding that you will serve wood and stone, and do after this manner?
45 And forget Yahweh God who made the sky and the land, and who created you in the land, and thereby bring a great evil upon your souls in this matter by serving stone and wood?
46 Did not our fathers in days of old sin in this matter, and Yahweh God of the universe brought the waters of the flood upon them and destroyed the whole land?
47 And how can you continue to do this and serve gods of wood and stone, who cannot hear, or speak, or deliver you from oppression, thereby bringing down the anger of the God of the universe upon you?
48 Now therefore my father refrain from this, and bring not evil upon your soul and the souls of your household.
49 And Abram hastened and sprang from before his father, and took the hatchet from his father's largest idol, with which Abram broke it and ran away.
50 And Terah, seeing all that Abram had done, hastened to go from his house, and he went to the king and he came before Nimrod and stood before him, and he bowed down to the king; and the king said, What dost you want?
51 And he said, I beseech you my lord, to hear me--Now fifty years back a child was born to me, and thus has he done to my gods and thus has he spoken; and now therefore, my lord and king, send for him that he may come before you, and judge him according to the law, that we may be delivered from his evil.
52 And the king sent three men of his servants, and they went and brought Abram before the king. And Nimrod and all his princes and servants were that day sitting before him, and Terah sat also before them.
53 And the king said to Abram, What is this that you hast done to your father and to his gods? And Abram answered the king in the words that he spoke to his father, and he said, The large god that was with them in the house did to them what you hast heard.
54 And the king said to Abram, Had they power to speak and eat and do as you hast said? And Abram answered the king, saying, And if there be no power in them why dost you serve them and cause the sons of men to err through your follies?
55 Dost you imagine that they can deliver you or do anything small or great, that you shouldst serve them? And why wilt you not sense the God of the whole universe, who created you and in whose power it is to kill and keep alive?
56 0 foolish, simple, and ignorant king, woe unto you forever.
57 I thought you wouldst teach your servants the upright way, but you hast not done this, but hast filled the whole land with your sins and the sins of your people who have followed your ways.
58 Dost you not know, or hast you not heard, that this evil which you doest, our ancestors sinned therein in days of old, and the eternal God brought the waters of the flood upon them and destroyed them all, and also destroyed the whole land on their account? And wilt you and your people rise up now and do like unto this work, in order to bring down the anger of Yahweh God of the universe, and to bring evil upon you and the whole land?
59 Now therefore put away this evil deed which you doest, and serve the God of the universe, as your soul is in His hands, and then it will be well with you.
60 And if your wicked heart will not hearken to my words to cause you to forsake your evil ways, and to serve the eternal God, then wilt you die in shame in the latter days, you, your people and all who are connected with you, hearing your words or walking in your evil ways.
61 And when Abram had ceased speaking before the king and princes, Abram lifted up his eyes to the heavens, and he said, Yahweh seeth all the wicked, and He will judge them.
1 And when the king heard the words of Abram he ordered him to be put into prison; and Abram was ten days in prison.
2 And at the end of those days the king ordered that all the kings, princes and governors of different provinces and the sages should come before him, and they sat before him, and Abram was still in the house of confinement.
3 And the king said to the princes and sages, Have you heard what Abram, the son of Terah, has done to his father? Thus has he done to him, and I ordered him to be brought before me, and thus has he spoken; his heart did not misgive him, neither did he stir in my presence, and behold now he is confined in the prison.
4 And therefore decide what judgment is due to this man who reviled the king; who spoke and did all the things that you heard.
5 And they all answered the king saying, The man who revileth the king should be hanged upon a tree; but having done all the things that he said, and having despised our gods, he must therefore be burned to death, for this is the law in this matter.
6 If it pleaseth the king to do this, let him order his servants to kindle a fire both night and day in your brick furnace, and then we will cast this man into it. And the king did so, and he commanded his servants that they should prepare a fire for three days and three nights in the king's furnace, that is in Casdim; and the king ordered them to take Abram from prison and bring him out to be burned.
7 And all the king's servants, princes, lords, governors, and judges, and all the inhabitants of the land, about nine hundred thousand men, stood opposite the furnace to see Abram.
8 And all the women and little ones crowded upon the roofs and towers to see what was doing with Abram, and they all stood together at a distance; and there was not a man left that did not come on that day to behold the scene.
9 And when Abram was come, the conjurors of the king and the sages saw Abram, and they cried out to the king, saying, Our sovereign lord, surely this is the man whom we know to have been the child at whose birth the great star swallowed the four stars, which we declared to the king now fifty years since.
10 And behold now his father has also transgressed your commands, and mocked you by bringing you another (a different) child, which you didst kill.
11 And when the king heard their words, he was exceedingly wroth, and he ordered Terah to be brought before him.
12 And the king said, Hast you heard what the conjurors have spoken? Now tell me truly, how didst you; and if you shalt speak truth you shalt be acquitted.
13 And seeing that the king's anger was so much kindled, Terah said to the king, My lord and king, you hast heard the truth, and what the sages have spoken is right. And the king said, How couldst you do this thing, to transgress my orders and to give me a child that you didst not beget, and to take value for him?
14 And Terah answered the king, Because my tender feelings were excited for my son, at that time, and I took a son of my handmaid, and I brought him to the king.
15 And the king said Who advised you to this? Tell me, do not hide aught from me, and then you shalt not die.
16 And Terah was greatly terrified in the king's presence, and he said to the king, It was Haran my eldest son who advised me to this; and Haran was in those days that Abram was born, two and thirty years old.
17 But Haran did not advise his father to anything, for Terah said this to the king in order to deliver his soul from the king, for he feared greatly; and the king said to Terah, Haran your son who advised you to this shall die through fire with Abram; for the sentence of death is upon him for having rebelled against the king's desire in doing this thing.
18 And Haran at that time felt inclined to follow the ways of Abram, but he kept it within himself.
19 And Haran said in his heart, Behold now the king has seized Abram on account of these things which Abram did, and it shall come to pass, that if Abram prevail over the king I will follow him, but if the king prevail I will go after the king.
Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters:
James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
20 And when Terah had spoken this to the king concerning Haran his son, the king ordered Haran to be seized with Abram.
21 And they brought them both, Abram and Haran his brother, to cast them into the fire; and all the inhabitants of the land and the king's servants and princes and all the women and little ones were there, standing that day over them.
22 And the king's servants took Abram and his brother, and they stripped them of all their clothes excepting their lower garments which were upon them.
23 And they bound their hands and feet with linen cords, and the servants of the king lifted them up and cast them both into the furnace.
24 And Yahweh loved Abram and He had compassion over him, and Yahweh came down and delivered Abram from the fire and he was not burned.
25 But all the cords with which they bound him were burned, while Abram remained and walked about in the fire.
26 And Haran died when they had cast him into the fire, and he was burned to ashes, for his heart was not perfect with Yahweh; and those men who cast him into the fire, the flame of the fire spread over them, and they were burned, and twelve men of them died.
27 And Abram walked in the midst of the fire three days and three nights, and all the servants of the king saw him walking in the fire, and they came and told the king, saying, Behold we have seen Abram walking about in the midst of the fire, and even the lower garments which are upon him are not burned, but the cord with which he was bound is burned.
28 And when the king heard their words his heart fainted and he would not believe them; so he sent other faithful princes to see this matter, and they went and saw it and told it to the king; and the king rose to go and see it, and he saw Abram walking to and fro in the midst of the fire, and he saw Haran's body burned, and the king wondered greatly.
29 And the king ordered Abram to be taken out from the fire; and his servants approached to take him out and they could not, for the fire was round about and the flame ascending toward them from the furnace.
30 And the king's servants fled from it, and the king rebuked them, saying, Make haste and bring Abram out of the fire that you shall not die.
31 And the servants of the king again approached to bring Abram out, and the flames came upon them and burned their faces so that eight of them died.
32 And when the king saw that his servants could not approach the fire lest they should be burned, the king called to Abram, O servant of the God who is in heaven, go forth from amidst the fire and come hither before me; and Abram hearkened to the voice of the king, and he went forth from the fire and came and stood before the king.
33 And when Abram came out the king and all his servants saw Abram coming before the king, with his lower garments upon him, for they were not burned, but the cord with which he was bound was burned.
34 And the king said to Abram, How is it that you wast not burned in the fire?
35 And Abram said to the king, The God of heaven and earth in whom I trust and who has all in His power, He delivered me from the fire into which you didst cast me.
36 And Haran the brother of Abram was burned to ashes, and they sought for his body, and they found it consumed.
37 And Haran was eighty-two years old when he died in the fire of Casdim. And the king, princes, and inhabitants of the land, seeing that Abram was delivered from the fire, they came and bowed down to Abram.
38 And Abram said to them, Do not bow down to me, but bow down to the God of the world who made you, and serve Him, and go in His ways for it is He who delivered me from out of this fire, and it is He who created the souls and spirits of all men, and formed man in his mother's womb, and brought him forth into the world, and it is He who will deliver those who trust in Him from all pain.
39 And this thing seemed very wonderful in the eyes of the king and princes, that Abram was saved from the fire and that Haran was burned; and the king gave Abram many presents and he gave him his two head servants from the king's house; the name of one was Oni and the name of the other was Eliezer.
40 And all the kings, princes and servants gave Abram many gifts of silver and gold and pearl, and the king and his princes sent him away, and he went in peace.
41 And Abram went forth from the king in peace, and many of the king's servants followed him, and about three hundred men joined him.
42 And Abram returned on that day and went to his father's house, he and the men that followed him, and Abram served Yahweh his God all the days of his life, and he walked in His ways and followed His law.
43 And from that day forward Abram inclined the hearts of the sons of men to serve Yahweh.
plucking out your eye, this means nothing else but the seed of Abram which will slay the king in latter days.
Chapter 19 is about Sodom and Gomorrah.
Genesis 19:15 And when the morning arose, then the angels (messengers) hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take your wife, and your two daughters, which are here; lest you be consumed in the (punishment of) iniquity of the city.
19:24 Then Yahweh rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from Yahweh out of heaven (the sky);
19:25 And He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
3Maccabees 2:5 It was thou who didst make the Sodomites, those workers of exceeding iniquity, men notorious for their vices, an example to after generations, when thou didst cover them with fire and brimstone.
2Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Psalm 107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
We are living in a society today that is no different than Sodom and Gomorrah. Fornication, race-mixing, homosexuality, transgenders, athiests, pagans, everything wicked. This society and this wicked world will soon be overthrown by fire. Very soon!
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Chapter 14 detailed the deliverance of the children of Israel from the Egyptians. The crossing of the Sea of Reeds.
The song of Moses
Exodus 15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto Yahweh, and spake, saying, I will sing unto Yahweh, for He hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath He thrown into the sea.
Revelation 15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Yahweh God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
Psalm 106:12 Then believed they His words; they sang His praise.
15:2 Yahweh is my strength and song, and He is become my salvation: He is my God, and I will prepare Him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt Him.
Psalm 118:14 Yahweh is my strength and song, and is become my salvation (preservation).
Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for YAHWEH is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation.
15:3 Yahweh is a man of war: Yahweh is His name.
So much for the “churches” God of Love. He is more than just love.
Revelation 19:11 And I saw the sky opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.
15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea (Sea of Reeds).
15:5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.
15:6 Your right hand, O Yahweh, is become glorious in power: Your right hand, O Yahweh, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
The Hebrew has hated enemy.
15:7 And in the greatness of Your excellency You hast overthrown them that rose up against You: You sentest forth Your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
The Hebrew has burning wrath. More emphatic words.
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
So we see that Yahweh has burning anger towards those that are against Him. The result is being consumed as stubble.
The golden calf
Exodus 32:1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
The people, stuck in their pagan ways, have no patience and pressure Aaron into making an idol.
32:2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
32:3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
32:4 And he received them at (from) their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be your gods, O Israel, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
After witnessing all the wonderful works Yahweh did for them, they still wanted some kind of idol or god. No different than today.
32:5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to Yahweh.
Aaron is the high priest and he was part of all this wickedness, and he paid the price later on for it.
32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
Play (H6711) has licentious and sexual overtones, as will be seen in verse 25.
1Corinthians 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
32:7 And Yahweh said unto Moses, Go, get you down; for your people, which you broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:
32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of The Way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be your gods, O Israel, which have brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
32:9 And Yahweh said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
2Chronicles 30:8 Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but yield yourselves unto Yahweh, and enter into His sanctuary, which He hath sanctified for ever: and serve Yahweh your God, that the fierceness of His wrath may turn away from you.
32:10 Now therefore let Me alone, that My wrath (anger) may wax hot (burn) against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of you a great nation.
Yahweh was going to start over with Moses and make his seed a great nation.
32:11 And Moses besought (made supplication to) Yahweh his God, and said, Yahweh, why doth Your wrath (anger) wax hot (burn) against Your people, which You hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?
32:12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did He bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth (land)? Turn from Your fierce wrath (anger), and repent (change Your mind) of this evil against Your people.
32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swarest by Your own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven (the sky), and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. (Num 14:13-19)
Exclusive. Yahweh only has a relationship with His people. The race of Adam. Not the other people in the world. Moses was reminding Yahweh of His oath.
32:14 And Yahweh repented of the evil which He thought to do unto His people.
Repented means in context, to change one's mind. Yahweh changes His mind about the impending destruction of the entire nation after Moses pleaded for his people. Moses had strong love for his people. Moses demonstrated the 2nd Great Commandment (Matt 22:37-39). Moses was a 'type', a foreshadow of Christ.
Would Yahweh have destroyed the children of Jacob and start over with Moses, of course not, Yahweh will not break His promises and covenants with Israel. He was just making a point. That point was that He hates idolatry and those that are idolators will be consumed by fire.
After Aaron and his sons did all the things in which Yahweh commanded by the hand of Moses...
Leviticus 9:7 And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer your sin offering, and your burnt offering, and make an atonement (propitiation) for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement (propitiation) for them; as Yahweh commanded.
9:23 ... and the glory of Yahweh appeared unto all the people.
9:24 And there came a fire out from before Yahweh, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.
Their sins were consumed by the fire of Yahweh. Yahweh lit this first fire.
The rebellion of Korah (Core)
Qorach was the great grandson of Levi and leader of the rebellion against Moses and Aaron.
Numbers 16:1 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:
16:2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation (summoned for meeting), men of renown (men of a good name):
They were upright men that were corrupted by Korah.
16:3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and Yahweh is among them: wherefore then lift you up yourselves above the congregation of Yahweh?
16:4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:
16:5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow Yahweh will shew who are His, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto Him: even him whom He hath chosen will He cause to come near unto Him.
16:6 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;
Censers (H4289): The same as H4288 in the sense of removal; a pan for live coals: - censer, firepan, snuffdish.
16:7 And put fire therein, and put incense in them before Yahweh to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom Yahweh doth choose, he shall be holy: you take too much upon you, you sons of Levi.
16:8 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, you sons of Levi:
16:9 Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself to do the service of the tabernacle of Yahweh, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?
16:10 And He hath brought you near to Him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek you the priesthood also?
They were not sons of Aaron. Only Aaron's seed was chosen as the chief priests.
Korah and his men were Levites and had specific duties within the priesthood.
By the time of Christ, the sons of Esau (Jews) successfully infiltrated, controlled, and corrupted the Levitical priesthood.
16:11 For which cause both you and all thy company are gathered together against Yahweh: and what is Aaron, that you murmur against him?
16:12 And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up:
16:13 Is it a small thing that you hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except you make thyself altogether a prince over us?
Acts 7:35 This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
16:14 Moreover you hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt you put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.
16:15 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto Yahweh, Respect not You their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.
16:16 And Moses said unto Korah, Be you and all thy company before Yahweh, you, and they, and Aaron, to morrow:
16:17 And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring you before Yahweh every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; you also, and Aaron, each of you his censer.
16:18 And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation (tent of meeting) with Moses and Aaron.
16:19 And Korah gathered all the (his) congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of Yahweh appeared unto all the congregation.
16:20 And Yahweh spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
16:21 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume (end) them in a moment.
16:22 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt You be wroth with all the congregation?
16:23 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying,
16:24 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
16:25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him.
16:26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins.
If you hang around those who are going to be consumed, you will be consumed too.
16:27 So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children.
16:28 And Moses said, Hereby you shall know that Yahweh hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind (heart).
16:29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then Yahweh hath not sent me.
16:30 But if Yahweh make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit (land of the dead, the grave); then you shall understand that these men have provoked Yahweh.
16:31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:
16:32 And the earth (ground) opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
Jasher 84:2 And Yahweh was angry with them, and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up, with their houses and all belonging to them, and all the men belonging to Korah.
16:33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.
16:34 And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.
16:35 And there came out a fire from Yahweh, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.
Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
16:36 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying,
16:37 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter you the fire yonder; for they are hallowed.
16:38 The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before Yahweh, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.
16:39 And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar:
16:40 To be a memorial (reminder) unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before Yahweh; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as Yahweh said to him by the hand of Moses.
Stranger here is zur. Not of the family of the lineage of Aaron.
16:41 But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the people of Yahweh.
16:42 And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation (tent of meeting): and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of Yahweh appeared.
16:43 And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation (tent of meeting).
16:44 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying,
16:45 Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces.
16:46 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement (propitiation) for them: for there is wrath gone out from Yahweh; the plague is begun.
16:47 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement (propitiation) for the people.
16:48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.
20 Yea, the tasting of death touched the righteous also, and there was a destruction of the multitude in the wilderness: but the wrath endured not long.
21 For then the blameless man made haste, and stood forth to defend them; and bringing the shield of his proper ministry, even prayer, and the propitiation of incense, set himself against the wrath, and so brought the calamity to an end, declaring that he was thy servant.
22 So he overcame the destroyer, not with strength of body, nor force of arms, but with a word subdued him that punished, alleging the oaths and covenants made with the fathers.
23 For when the dead were now fallen down by heaps one upon another, standing between, he stayed the wrath, and parted the way to the living.
24 For in the long garment was the whole world, and in the four rows of the stones was the glory of the fathers graven, and thy Majesty upon the diadem of his head.
25 Unto these the destroyer gave place, and was afraid of them: for it was enough that they only tasted of the wrath.
16:49 Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah.
16:50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation (tent of meeting): and the plague was stayed.
4Maccabees 7:11 For as father Aaron, armed with a censer, hastening through the consuming fire, vanquished the flame-bearing angel,
Israel again shows a rebellious nature. Korah and his cronies seek to elevate their Levitical status with a challenge to Moses and Aaron. With this act they also challenged Yahweh, who had placed Moses and Aaron in their positions. And we saw the result. Israel saw it also, but stupidly blamed Moses and Aaron for the deaths the next day, resulting in even more wrath from Yahweh.
Numbers 31:1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying,
31:2 Avenge the children of Israel of (upon) the Midianites: afterward shalt you be gathered unto thy people.
31:3 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge Yahweh of Midian.
31:8 And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword. (Josh 13:21-22)
Hang out with the wrong crowd, you get dealt with as part of the crowd.
31:9 And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.
31:10 And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.
31:11 And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men (Adam) and of beasts.
Men here is awdawm. These would be kinsmen, but unrighteous kinsmen. Pagans.
31:14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.
31:15 And Moses said unto them, Have you saved all the women alive?
31:16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against Yahweh in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of Yahweh.
31:17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
31:18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
These were Adamic females that became pagan. (31:11)
31:19 And do you abide without the camp seven days: whosoever hath killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify both yourselves and your captives on the third day, and on the seventh day.
31:20 And purify all your raiment, and all that is made of skins, and all work of goats' hair, and all things made of wood.
They were ceremonially unclean because of the bloodshed.
Even in a righteous war, Yahweh's laws and instructions do not change.
31:21 And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war which went to the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which Yahweh commanded Moses;
31:22 Only the gold, and the silver, the brass (bronze), the iron, the tin, and the lead,
31:23 Every thing that may abide the fire, you shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall be purified with the water of separation (impurity): and all that abideth not the fire you shall make go through the water.
The spoils of war had to be cleansed as well.
We see that fire is a refiner and a purger of dross and impurity.
31:24 And you shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and you shall be clean, and afterward you shall come into the camp.
The army had to purify themselves for seven days before they could come back into the camp.
The people of Midian were of the descendants of Adam. In Genesis 25:2 we see that Midian was the son of Abraham by Keturah. Keturah was a concubine, not the first wife. There was no inheritance for a son of a concubine. Isaac gets the inheritance.
The Midianites were never in bondage in Egypt, and were not of the covenant people (Israel), even though they were of Adamic seedline at that time. They had picked up some customs of the Canaanites, and some of their religious practices. These practices put them in conflict with the Yahweh worshiping Israelites. And the Midianites had mixed a bit with the locals, so there were some mixed blood among them.
The virgins among the young Midianite women were spared because they were kin to Israel.
Deuteronomy 4:12 And Yahweh spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: you heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only you heard a voice.
4:13 And He declared unto you His covenant, which He commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and He wrote them upon two tables of stone.
4:14 And Yahweh commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that you might do them in the land whither you go over to possess it.
4:15 Take you therefore good heed unto yourselves; for you saw no manner of similitude on the day that Yahweh spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:
4:16 Lest you corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure (statue), the likeness of male or female,
4:17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,
4:18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:
Romans 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
4:19 And lest you lift up your eyes unto heaven (the sky), and when you seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven (the sky), shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which Yahweh your God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven (sky).
4:20 But Yahweh hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto Him a people of inheritance, as you are this day.
1Kings 8:51 For they be your people, and your inheritance, which you broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron:
Jeremiah 11:4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey My voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall you be My people, and I will be your God:
The furnace of iron is a reference to making bricks in Egyptian bondage.
Titus 2:14 Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
1Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light:
4:21 Furthermore Yahweh was angry with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which Yahweh your God giveth you for an inheritance:
4:22 But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but you shall go over, and possess that good land.
4:23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest you forget the covenant of Yahweh your God, which He made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which Yahweh your God hath forbidden you.
4:24 For Yahweh your God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
Exodus 24:17 And the sight of the glory of Yahweh was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
Isaiah 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
4:29 But if from thence you shalt seek Yahweh your God, you shalt find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Jeremiah 29:13 And you shall seek Me, and find Me, when you shall search for Me with all your heart.
4:30 When you are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon you, even in the latter days, if you turn (return) to Yahweh your God, and shalt be obedient unto His voice;
3Maccabees 2:10 And You didst promise, out of love to the people of Israel, that should we fall away from You, and become afflicted, and then come to this house and pray, You wouldest hear our prayer.
4:31 (For Yahweh your God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He sware unto them.
2Chronicles 30:9 For if you turn again unto Yahweh, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for Yahweh your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away His face from you, if you return unto Him.
Nehemiah 9:31 Nevertheless for your great mercies' sake you didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for you art a gracious and merciful God.
4:32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that God created man upon the earth (land), and ask from the one side of heaven (the sky) unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?
4:33 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you hast heard, and live?
4:34 Or hath God assayed to go and take Him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that Yahweh your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
Exodus 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am Yahweh, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
4:35 Unto you it was shewed, that you mightest know that Yahweh He is God; there is none else beside Him.
Mark 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, Thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but He:
4:36 Out of heaven (the sky) He made you to hear His voice, that He might instruct you: and upon earth (the land) He shewed you His great fire; and you heardest His words out of the midst of the fire.
The 10 Commandments
Deuteronomy 5:1 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that you may learn them, and keep, and do them.
The Hebrew has “study them”, as part of learn them. And “guard them” (keep).
5:2 Yahweh our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.
5:3 Yahweh made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.
5:4 Yahweh talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,
5:5 (I stood between Yahweh and you at that time, to shew you the word of Yahweh: for you were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,
5:6 I am Yahweh your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
5:7 You shalt have none other gods before Me. (Ex 20:2-3)
5:8 You shalt not make you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven (the sky) above, or that is in the earth (land) beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth (land):
5:9 You shalt not bow down yourself unto them, nor serve them: for I Yahweh your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me,
5:10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me and keep My commandments.
5:11 You shalt not take the name of Yahweh your God in vain: for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. (Ex 20:7)
The Hebrew has vain as, for a worthless purpose. This includes swearing an oath in His name and race mixing.
5:12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as Yahweh your God hath commanded you.
5:13 Six days you shalt labour, and do all your work:
5:14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of Yahweh your God: in it you shalt not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your ox, nor your ass, nor any of your cattle (livestock), nor your stranger (sojourning kinsman) that is within your gates; that your manservant and your maidservant may rest as well as you.
5:15 And remember that you wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that Yahweh your God brought you out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore Yahweh your God commanded you to keep the sabbath day.
5:16 Honour your father and your mother, as Yahweh your God hath commanded you; that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you, in the land which Yahweh your God giveth you.
This also includes honoring your ancestors, your race.
5:17 You shalt not kill (murder).
5:18 Neither shalt you commit adultery. (Lev 20:10)
5:19 Neither shalt you steal. (Lev 19:11)
5:20 Neither shalt you bear false witness against your neighbour.
5:21 Neither shalt you desire your neighbour's wife, neither shalt you covet your neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is your neighbour's.
5:22 These words Yahweh spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and He added no more. And He wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.
5:23 And it came to pass, when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that you came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;
5:24 And you said, Behold, Yahweh our God hath shewed us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.
5:25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of Yahweh our God any more, then we shall die.
5:26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?
5:27 Go you near, and hear all that Yahweh our God shall say: and speak you unto us all that Yahweh our God shall speak unto you; and we will hear it, and do it.
5:28 And Yahweh heard the voice of your words, when you spake unto me; and Yahweh said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto you: they have well said all that they have spoken.
5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear (revere) Me, and keep all My commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
Notice the law came from Yahweh out of the midst of the fire. Follow the law or get burned!
Deuteronomy 9:1 Hear, O Israel: You are to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess (dispossess) nations greater and mightier than yourself, cities great and fenced up to heaven (the sky),
9:2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom you knowest, and of whom you hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Anak!
Numbers 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
9:3 Understand therefore this day, that Yahweh your God is He which goeth over before you; as a consuming fire He shall destroy them, and He shall bring them down before your face: so shalt you drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as Yahweh hath said unto you.
9:9 When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant which Yahweh made with you, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread nor drink water:
Yahweh sustained him.
Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
9:10 And Yahweh delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which Yahweh spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.
Deuteronomy 10:4 And He wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which Yahweh spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and Yahweh gave them unto me.
Deuteronomy 33:2 And he (Moses) said, Yahweh came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; He shined forth from mount Paran, and He came with ten thousands of saints: from His right hand went a fiery law for them.
The law is related to the fire. The Word. The mouth of Yahweh. Disobey the law and you will get burned. This will become evident as you go through this study.
Joshua 7:11 Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed (H5674- rebelled, passed beyond the bounds of ) My covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.
Yahweh does not want Canaanite things among Israelite things.
7:12 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their (hated) enemies, but turned their backs before their (hated) enemies, because they were accursed (devoted to utter destruction): neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you.
7:13 Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith Yahweh God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of you, O Israel: you canst not stand before your enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.
When you take from the accursed thing that is devoted to utter destruction, you also become a part of that devoted thing.
7:14 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which Yahweh taketh (by lot) shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which Yahweh shall take (by lot) shall come by households; and the household which Yahweh shall take (by lot) shall come man by man.
7:15 And it shall be, that he that is taken (by lot) with the accursed thing shall be burnt (destroyed utterly) with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of Yahweh, and because he hath wrought folly (a disgraceful act) in Israel.
The lot fell upon the tribe of Judah, which eventually lead to Achan.
7:24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.
7:25 And Joshua said, Why hast you troubled us? Yahweh shall trouble you this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.
7:26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So Yahweh turned from the fierceness (burning) of His anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.
The sin of Achan and his family disturbed the peace and blessings of Yahweh towards the nation. We, as members of the body, must all follow The Way, otherwise the body becomes corrupt. Hence, accursed, devoted to utter destruction. Burned by FIRE!
The Ark of the Covenant was in the country of the Philistines seven months. This was the times when the Philistines had the Israelites under tribute. Israel were defeated and the Philistines took the ark. But this did not go well with the Philistines as Yahweh broke down the image of their god Dagon and smote the Philistines with hemorrhoids and mice. So the Philistines put the ark on a cart pulled by two nursing kine and sent it off to Betheshemesh.
1Samuel 6:19 And He (Yahweh) smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of Yahweh, even He smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because Yahweh had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.
6:20 And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy Yahweh God? and to whom shall he go up from us?
6:21 And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again the ark of Yahweh; come ye down, and fetch it up to you.
2Samuel 6:3 And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart.
6:4 And they brought it out of the house of Abinadab which was at Gibeah, accompanying the ark of God: and Ahio went before the ark.
6:5 And David and all the house of Israel played before Yahweh on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals.
6:6 And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it.
6:7 And the anger of Yahweh was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God. (1Chr 13:10)
Uzzah was not a Levite. Only the Levites were able to carry the ark, and by it's staves (poles).
Exodus 25:13-28 are instructions regarding the ark, most important of which are the staves that went through rings in each corner of the ark in order to carry it.
The ark was like a giant capacitor filled with energy. They had to carry it with poles of wood because they were non conductive.
Just imagine that if the ark was untouchable because of the power of the Almighty, just imagine what will happen to the world and everyone in it when He returns. ZAP!
1Kings 18:17 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art you he that troubleth Israel?
18:18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but you, and your father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of Yahweh, and you hast followed Baalim.
18:19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves (Asherah poles) four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.
18:20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.
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.
18:22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of Yahweh; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
18:23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:
18:24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of Yahweh: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
18:25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
18:26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped (danced) upon the altar which was made.
18:27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
18:28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
Leviticus 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am Yahweh.
Deuteronomy 14:1 Ye are the children of Yahweh your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.
18:29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
18:30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of Yahweh that was broken down.
18:31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of Yahweh came, saying, Israel shall be your name:
Genesis 32:28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast you power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
18:32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of Yahweh: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.
18:33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.
18:34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.
18:35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.
18:36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, Yahweh God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that You art God in Israel, and that I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word.
18:37 Hear me, O Yahweh, hear (answer) me, that this people may know that You art Yahweh God, and that You hast turned their heart back again.
18:38 Then the fire of Yahweh fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
Leviticus 9:24 And there came a fire out from before Yahweh, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.
18:39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, Yahweh, He is the God; Yahweh, He is the God.
18:40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
We can see that it is the fire of Yahweh God that will consume everything.
Ahaziah sent soldiers to seize Elijah to kill him.
2Kings 1:9 Then the king (Ahaziah) sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, You man of God, the king hath said, Come down.
1:10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven (the sky), and consume you and your fifty. And there came down fire from heaven (the sky), and consumed him and his fifty.
Luke 9:54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, Prince, wilt you that we command fire to come down from heaven (the sky), and consume them, even as Elijah did?
Revelation 13:13 And he (the false prophets) doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven (the sky) on the earth (land) in the sight of men,
1:11 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.
1:12 And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven (the sky), and consume you and your fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven (the sky), and consumed him and his fifty.
1:13 And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray you, let my life, and the life of these fifty your servants, be precious in your sight.
1:14 Behold, there came fire down from heaven (the sky), and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in your sight.
IIEsdras 7  And after seven days the world, which is not yet awake, shall be roused, and that which is corruptible shall perish.
The 7 “church” ages of Revelation. We are in the last age, Laodicea.
 And the earth shall give up those who are asleep in it, and the dust those who dwell silently in it; and the chambers shall give up the souls which have been committed to them.
 And the Most High shall be revealed upon the seat of judgment, and compassion shall pass away, and patience shall be withdrawn;
 but only judgment shall remain, truth shall stand, and faithfulness shall grow strong.
 And recompense shall follow, and the reward shall be manifested; righteous deeds shall awake, and unrighteous deeds shall not sleep.
 Then the pit of torment shall appear, and opposite it shall be the place of rest; and the furnace of hell shall be disclosed, and opposite it the paradise of delight.
 Then the Most High will say to the nations that have been raised from the dead, `Look now, and understand whom you have denied, whom you have not served, whose commandments you have despised!
 Look on this side and on that; here are delight and rest, and there are fire and torments!' Thus He will speak to them on the day of judgment --
 a day that has no sun or moon or stars,
 or cloud or thunder or lightning or wind or water or air, or darkness or evening or morning,
 or summer or spring or heat or winter or frost or cold or hail or rain or dew,
 or noon or night, or dawn or shining or brightness or light, but only the splendor of the glory of the Most High, by which all shall see what has been determined for them
 For it will last for about a week of years.
 This is My judgment and its prescribed order; and to you alone have I shown these things."
 I answered and said, "O sovereign Yahweh, I said then and I say now: Blessed are those who are alive and keep Thy commandments!
If those that keep His commandments are blessed at the end of the age, then those that do not keep His commandments are NOT blessed, in fact they will be burned with fire.
Vision of our Prince's return
II Esdras 13:1 After seven days I dreamed a dream in the night;
 and behold, a wind arose from the sea and stirred up all its waves.
 And I looked, and behold, this wind made something like the figure of a man come up out of the heart of the sea. And I looked, and behold, that man flew with the clouds of heaven; and wherever He turned His face to look, everything under His gaze trembled,
 and whenever His voice issued from His mouth, all who heard His voice melted as wax melts when it feels the fire.
 After this I looked, and behold, an innumerable multitude of men were gathered together from the four winds of heaven to make war against the man who came up out of the sea. Armageddon.
 And I looked, and behold, He carved out for Himself a great mountain, and flew up upon it.
 And I tried to see the region or place from which the mountain was carved, but I could not.
 After this I looked, and behold, all who had gathered together against Him, to wage war with Him, were much afraid, yet dared to fight.
 And behold, when He saw the onrush of the approaching multitude, He neither lifted His hand nor held a spear or any weapon of war;
 but I saw only how He sent forth from His mouth as it were a stream of fire, and from His lips a flaming breath, and from His tongue He shot forth a storm of sparks.
 All these were mingled together, the stream of fire and the flaming breath and the great storm, and fell on the onrushing multitude which was prepared to fight, and burned them all up, so that suddenly nothing was seen of the innumerable multitude but only the dust of ashes and the smell of smoke. When I saw it, I was amazed.
 After this I saw the same man come down from the mountain and call to Him another multitude which was peaceable.
 Then many people came to Him, some of whom were joyful and some sorrowful; some of them were bound, and some were bringing others as offerings.
Then in great fear I awoke; and I besought the Most High, and said,
 "From the beginning Thou hast shown Thy servant these wonders, and hast deemed me worthy to have my prayer heard by Thee;
 now show me also the interpretation of this dream.
 For as I consider it in my mind, alas for those who will be left in the last days! And still more, alas for those who are not left!
 For those who are not left will be sad,
 because they understand what is reserved for the last days, but cannot attain it.
Those that died already, they will see (before their sleep-in their chambers-guarded by angels), but not experience what we who are alive will experience at Yahshua's return.
 But alas for those also who are left, and for that very reason! For they shall see great dangers and much distress, as these dreams show.
This is us and what we are about to see in the last days.
 Yet it is better to come into these things, though incurring peril, than to pass from the world like a cloud, and not to see what shall happen in the last days."
He answered me and said,
 "I will tell you the interpretation of the vision, and I will also explain to you the things which you have mentioned.
 As for what you said about those who are left, this is the interpretation:
 He who brings the peril at that time will Himself protect those who fall into peril, who have works and have faith (has allegiance) in the Almighty. Praise Yahweh!
 Understand therefore that those who are left are more blessed than those who have died.
 This is the interpretation of the vision: As for your seeing a man come up from the heart of the sea,
 this is He whom the Most High has been keeping for many ages, who will Himself deliver His creation; and He will direct those who are left.
 And as for your seeing wind and fire and a storm coming out of His mouth,
 and as for His not holding a spear or weapon of war, yet destroying the onrushing multitude which came to conquer Him, this is the interpretation:
 Behold, the days are coming when the Most High will deliver those who are on the earth.
 And bewilderment of mind shall come over those who dwell on the earth.
 And they shall plan to make war against one another, city against city, place against place, people against people, and kingdom against kingdom.
 And when these things come to pass and the signs occur which I showed you before, then My Son will be revealed, whom you saw as a man coming up from the sea.
 And when all the nations hear His voice, every man shall leave his own land and the warfare that they have against one another;
 and an innumerable multitude shall be gathered together, as you saw, desiring to come and conquer Him.
 But He shall stand on the top of Mount Zion.
 And Zion will come and be made manifest to all people, prepared and built, as you saw the mountain carved out without hands.
 And He, My Son, will reprove the assembled nations for their ungodliness (this was symbolized by the storm),
 and will reproach them to their face with their evil thoughts and the torments with which they are to be tortured (which were symbolized by the flames), and will destroy them without effort by the law (which was symbolized by the fire).
 And as for your seeing Him gather to Himself another multitude that was peaceable,
 these are the ten tribes which were led away from their own land into captivity in the days of King Hoshea, whom Shalmaneser the king of the Assyrians led captive; he took them across the river, and they were taken into another land.
 But they formed this plan for themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the nations and go to a more distant region, where mankind had never lived, Europe
 that there at least they might keep their statutes which they had not kept in their own land.
 And they went in by the narrow passages of the Euphrates river.
 For at that time the Most High performed signs for them, and stopped the channels of the river until they had passed over.
 Through that region there was a long way to go, a journey of a year and a half; and that country is called Arzareth. America.
 "Then they dwelt there until the last times; and now, when they are about to come again,
 the Most High will stop the channels of the river again, so that they may be able to pass over. Therefore you saw the multitude gathered together in peace.
The 'scales' were taken off our eyes and we recognized each other. America is surely the regathering place of the 12 tribes.
 But those who are left of your people, who are found within My holy borders (white nations), shall be saved.
 Therefore when He destroys the multitude of the nations that are gathered together, He will defend the people who remain.
 And then He will show them very many wonders."
 I said, "O sovereign Yahweh, explain this to me: Why did I see the man coming up from the heart of the sea?"
 He said to me, "Just as no one can explore or know what is in the depths of the sea, so no one on earth can see My Son or those who are with Him, except in the time of His day.
 This is the interpretation of the dream which you saw. And you alone have been enlightened about this, Thank you Yahweh!
 because you have forsaken your own ways and have applied yourself to Mine, and have searched out My law;
 for you have devoted your life to wisdom, and called understanding your mother.
IIEsdras 15 "My right hand will not spare the sinners, and My sword will not cease from those who shed innocent blood on earth."
 And a fire will go forth from His wrath, and will consume the foundations of the earth, and the sinners, like straw that is kindled.
 "Woe to those who sin and do not observe My commandments," says Yahweh;
 "I will not spare them. Depart, you faithless children! Do not pollute My sanctuary."
Bye, bye “churches”. Antinomians, tolerators of mixed couples and homos. Jew worshipers!
 For Yahweh knows all who transgress against Him; therefore He will hand them over to death and slaughter.
IIEsdras 16 A fire has been sent upon you, and who is there to quench it?
 Calamities have been sent upon you, and who is there to drive them away?
 Can one drive off a hungry lion in the forest, or quench a fire in the stubble, when once it has begun to burn?
 Can one turn back an arrow shot by a strong archer?
 Yahweh God sends calamities, and who will drive them away?
 Fire will go forth from His wrath, and who is there to quench it?
 He will flash lightning, and who will not be afraid? He will thunder, and who will not be terrified?
 Yahweh will threaten, and who will not be utterly shattered at His presence?
 The earth and its foundations quake, the sea is churned up from the depths, and its waves and the fish also shall be troubled at the presence of Yahweh and before the glory of His power.
 For His right hand that bends the bow is strong, and His arrows that He shoots are sharp and will not miss when they begin to be shot to the ends of the world.
 Behold, calamities are sent forth and shall not return until they come over the earth.
 The fire is kindled, and shall not be put out until it consumes the foundations of the earth.
 For in many places and in neighboring cities there shall be a great insurrection against those who fear Yahweh.
The attack of Christianity. Only true Christianity reveres Yahweh.
 They shall be like mad men, sparing no one, but plundering and destroying those who continue to fear Yahweh.
The athiests are “like mad men”, sparing no opportunity to destroy His name. The “churches” continue to blaspheme Yahweh and teach their own doctrines.
 For they shall destroy and plunder their goods, and drive them out of their houses.
 Then the tested quality of My elect shall be manifest, as gold that is tested by fire.
 "Hear, My elect," says Yahweh. "Behold, the days of tribulation are at hand, and I will deliver you from them.
 Do not fear or doubt, for Yahweh is your guide.
 You who keep My commandments and precepts," says Yahweh God, "do not let your sins pull you down, or your iniquities prevail over you."
 Woe to those who are choked by their sins and overwhelmed by their iniquities, as a field is choked with underbrush and its path overwhelmed with thorns, so that no one can pass through!
 It is shut off and given up to be consumed by fire.
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
4Maccabees 9:9 But you, for the wicked and despotic slaughter of us, shalt, from the Divine vengeance, endure eternal torture by fire.
4Maccabees 9:22 But, as though transformed by fire into immortality, he nobly endured the rackings, saying
9:23 Imitate me, O brethren, nor ever desert your station, nor abjure my brotherhood in courage: fight the holy and honourable fight of religion;
9:24 by which means our just and paternal Providence, becoming merciful to the nation, will punish the pestilent tyrant.
4Maccabees 16:21 And the righteous Daniel was cast unto the lions; and Ananias, and Azarias, and Misael, were slung out into a furnace of fire; yet they endured through God.
4Maccabees 18:14 And he used to put you in mind of the scripture of Esaias, which saith, Even if you pass through the fire, it shall not burn you.
Talking about the wicked.
Job 18:15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone (burning sulfur) shall be scattered upon his habitation.
Septuagint has: “And let health be utterly banished from his tabernacle, ...”
18:16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.
Talking about the wicked.
Job 20:26 All darkness shall be hid in his secret places: a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.
Septuagint: 26 And let all darkness wait for him: a fire that burns not out shall consume him; and let a stranger plague his house.
Psalm 11:6 Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest (burning hot wind): this shall be the portion of their cup.
Cup of judgment for the wicked.
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 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.
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.
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Psalm 21:8 Your hand shall find out all Your (hated) enemies: Your right hand shall find out those that hate You.
21:9 You shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger (presence): Yahweh shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
Psalm 29:7 The voice of Yahweh divideth the flames of fire.
Sounds like Yahweh consumes and burns up the wicked and ungodly. And at the same time Yahweh purges and refines His obedient remnant. This is when we are glorified and given our Shekinah Glory back and are placed into position of sons in the Kingdom of Righteousness right here on earth.
Psalm 37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the (hated) enemies of Yahweh shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
The precious lambs, referring to the sacrificial lambs for burnt offering. The wicked will be consumed by fire.
Psalm 46:8 Come, behold the works of Yahweh, what desolations (ruin) He hath made in the earth (land).
46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth (land); He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; He burneth the chariot in the fire.
Yahshua will make an end to all those in power, all those that have come against His people and against Him will be burned in the fire of His wrath (anger).
This word burneth is from H8313 meaning to destroy by fire.
Psalm 50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous (stormy) round about Him.
50:4 He shall call to the heavens (skies) from above, and to the earth (land), that He may judge His people.
Not only is Yahshua going to come with fire (anger H784) that will devour (burn up and destroy H398) every evil thing before Him, we also will be judged (vindicated, requited H1777). We will either be consumed or refined.
Psalm 68:2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
Upon the coming of Yahshua Messiah, the wicked will melt as wax.
Psalm 83:13 O my God, make them like a wheel (whirl); as the stubble before the wind.
83:14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
83:15 So persecute them with Your tempest, and make them afraid with Your storm.
83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek Your name, O YAHWEH.
83:17 Let them be confounded (put to shame) and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame (disgraced), and perish (destroyed):
83:18 That men may know that You, whose name alone is YAHWEH, art the most high over all the earth (land).
Psalm 97:3 A fire goeth before Him, and burneth up His enemies round about.
97:4 His lightnings enlightened (light up) the world: the earth (land) saw, and trembled.
97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of Yahweh, at the presence of Yahweh of the whole earth (land).
Psalm 104:4 (Yahweh) Who maketh the wind His messenger; His ministers a flaming fire:
104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth (land), and let the wicked be no more. Bless You Yahweh, O my soul. Praise You Yahweh.
Psalm 112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
The wicked shall see the upright exhalted and receive blessings. And then they will melt away in the fire of judgment.
Psalm 119:116 Uphold me according unto Your word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
119:117 Hold You me up (Sustain me), and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto Your statutes continually.
119:118 You hast trodden down all them that err from Your statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.
119:119 You puttest away all the wicked of the earth (land) like dross: therefore I love Your testimonies.
Hope is expectation or anticipation. We may have hope that if we keep Yahweh's word and statutes we will remain after the consuming fire of Yahshua's judgment. The wicked can expect (hope) to be consumed in the fire of Yahshua's wrath.
Proverbs 25:4 Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.
This is done through fire.
Wisdom of Solomon 3:1 But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them.
3:2 In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery,
3:3 And their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace.
3:4 For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality.
3:5 And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded: for God proved them, and found them worthy for himself.
3:6 As gold in the furnace hath He tried them, and received them as a burnt offering.
3:7 And in the time of their visitation they shall shine, and run to and fro like sparks among the stubble.
It should become evident thus far that the wicked will not make it through the fire.
Sirach 2:5 For gold is tried in the fire, and acceptable men in the furnace of adversity.
Sirach 16:6 In the congregation of the ungodly shall a fire be kindled; and in a rebellious nation wrath is set on fire.
Sirach 27:5 The furnace proveth the potter's vessels; so the trial of man is in his reasoning.
Romans 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Referring to Jacob (honor) and Esau (dishonor). Esau Edom. Edomites.
Proverbs 16:4 Yahweh hath made all things for Himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
2Timothy 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
9:22 What if God, willing to shew His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
In other words, why keep the Edomites around? Well how would this life be a test without stumbling blocks? How else would we learn to strive for our inheritance and position of sons?
1Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us (Israelites) to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Prince Jesus Christ,
1Peter 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they (Edomites) were appointed.
Jacob/Israel = Positive, light, righteousness. Esau/Edom = Negative, darkness, destruction.
Read all about the fate of Edom (today's Jews) in just 21 verses in Obadiah.
Isaiah 5:24 Therefore as the (tongue of) fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of Yahweh of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
Exodus 15:7 And in the greatness of Your excellency You hast overthrown them that rose up against You: You sentest forth Your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
Job 18:16 His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.
5:25 Therefore is the anger of Yahweh kindled against His people, and He hath stretched forth His hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still. (2 Ki 22:13)
Yahweh was going to use this great nation of Asshur (Assyrians) as His rod of punishment towards Israel for their idolatry, race-mixing, and disobedience. The fire of His wrath will consume His people because they chose not to return to Him. The same thing will happen to His people at Judgment Day that choose to follow the children of the Devil.
Isaiah 33:10 Now will I rise, saith Yahweh; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up Myself.
33:11 You shall conceive chaff, you shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.
How can one conceive chaff? Conceive is harah, to become pregnant.
Bring forth is yalad, to bear, to beget, born, gender, declare pedigree.
We conceive chaff when we mix with the other races.
Psalm 7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
33:12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
33:13 Hear, you that are far off, what I have done; and, you that are near, acknowledge My might.
Yahweh was in the process of destroying the land and punishing His people. But we still do not learn from history as the same is happening today. This age is the last chance we have to learn from mistakes.
33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
33:16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks (the security of Yahweh): bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.
If we remain righteous He will preserve us when He brings the fire of His wrath against the ungodly.
Isaiah 34:1 Come near, you nations, to hear; and hearken, you people: let the earth (land) hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
Psalm 49:1 Hear this, all you people; give ear, all you inhabitants of the world:
34:2 For the indignation of Yahweh is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies: He hath utterly destroyed them, He hath delivered them to the slaughter.
34:3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
34:4 And all the host of heaven (the fallen angels) shall be dissolved, and the heavens (the skies) shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
The hosts of heaven were worshiped by the children of Israel. The gods and goddesses of the ancient pagan world that represented them.
Psalm 102:26 They shall perish, but you shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt you change them, and they shall be changed:
7 And when I shall put you out, I will cover the sky, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
8 All the bright lights of the sky will I make dark over you, and set darkness upon your land, saith Yahweh GOD.
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from the sky, and the powers of the skies shall be shaken:
Revelation 6:13 And the stars of the sky fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
6:14 And the sky departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
34:5 For My sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of My curse, to judgment.
The Hebrew starts verse 5 as: “For My sword shall be intoxicated (drunk with blood) in the sky:...
Idumea are the Edomite Jews. Descendants of Esau. The people of Yahweh's curse are the Jews, the Canaanites, the Edomites, the offspring of the fallen angels, the scribes, Sadducees and Pharisees, and the Herodians!
Ezekiel 36:5 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Surely in the fire of My jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the nations, and against all Idumea, which have appointed My land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
This officially happened in 1948 when the Edomite Jews “appointed My land into their possession”. Through instigation of WW1 and 2.
34:6 The sword of Yahweh is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for Yahweh hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
The sheep (Israel) that hang around the goats (Jews) will be slaughtered. In other words, the “churches” that teach Christ is a Jew will be slaughtered along with the Jews.
The land of Idumea is also wherever the children of Esau dwell. Their dwelling is here in America, NY, in Europe, London, and their own private (stolen) safe haven Palestine.
Zephaniah 1:7 Hold your peace at the presence of Yahweh GOD: for the day of Yahweh is at hand: for Yahweh hath prepared a sacrifice, He hath bid His guests.
Isaiah 43:1 But now thus saith Yahweh that created you, O Jacob, and He that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you art Mine.
The scriptures are undeniably exclusive to the race of Adam, and specifically to the children of Israel. The “churches” add everybody else. Yahweh has called only Israel.
43:2 When you passest through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walkest through the fire, you shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.
When we act and live according to the name we are called by, we will be preserved.
Chapter 47 is Judgment upon Babylon. Then and today.
Isaiah 47:10 For you (Babylon) hast trusted in your wickedness: you hast said, None seeth me. Your wisdom and your knowledge, it hath perverted you; and you hast said in your heart, I am, and none else beside me.
47:11 Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon you; you shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shalt not know.
47:12 Stand now with your enchantments, and with the multitude of your sorceries, wherein you hast laboured from your youth; if so be you shalt be able to profit, if so be you mayest prevail.
47:13 You art wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save you from these things that shall come upon you.
47:14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.
Nahum 1:10 For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.
47:15 Thus shall they be unto you with whom you hast laboured, even your merchants, from your youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save you.
Sorceries and enchantments are vices of the Jews used to cause us to stray from our God. Scorceries are references to pharmaceuticals. Enchantments are the media, movies, drugs, porn, gambling, materialism, religions, etc. Thorns and merchants are references to Canaanites and Edomites, which are Jews.
Mystery Babylon is the Jew World Order. We are enslaved by their usury and led astray by their Judaism.
The Jews are NOT Israelites. They are the descendants of Cain and of Esau.
Isaiah 48:1 Hear you this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of Yahweh, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.
Lip service. This is talking about today's “churches”. They don't even know His name. They teach and practice Judaism, the traditions of men. They teach the law was “done away with”, that Jesus is a Jew. They allow mixed race marriages and homosexuals in.
48:2 For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay (support) themselves upon the God of Israel; Yahweh of hosts is My name.
48:3 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of My mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.
Joshua 21:45 There failed not ought of any good thing which Yahweh had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.
48:4 Because I knew that you art obstinate (stubborn), and your neck is an iron sinew (stiffneck), and your brow brass (bronze);
Exodus 32:9 And Yahweh said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
Deuteronomy 31:27 For I know your rebellion, and your stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, you have been rebellious against Yahweh; and how much more after my death?
48:5 I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I shewed it you: lest you shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.
48:6 You hast heard, see all this; and will not you declare it? I have shewed you new things from this time, even hidden things, and you didst not know them.
48:7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when you heardest them not; lest you shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.
48:8 Yea, you heardest not; yea, you knewest not; yea, from that time that your ear was not opened: for I knew that you wouldest deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb.
Psalm 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
48:9 For My name's sake will I defer Mine anger, and for My praise will I refrain for you, that I cut you not off.
Psalm 79:9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Your name's sake.
48:10 Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.
We will not escape in some false “rapture”. We will be refined. If you are not tried, you are not a child of God's.
Psalm 66:10 For You, O God, hast proved us: You hast tried us, as silver is tried.
This life is our test, it is what refines us. We are proved when we obey and demonstrate allegiance to Yahweh. If we continue in allegiance (faith), we will remain after the fire of Judgment Day.
Isaiah 54:14 In righteousness shalt you be established: you shalt be far from oppression; for you shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you.
54:15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by Me: whosoever shall gather together against you shall fall for your sake.
54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster (spoiler) to destroy.
Yahweh told the children of Israel that He would keep the Canaanite tribes in their vicinity to teach them war and to chastise them.
54:17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh, and their righteousness is of Me, saith Yahweh.
This mortal life is our test to show we can keep His law and keep out His enemies.
When we choose Yahweh and follow His commands, we are established in righteousness, we will make it through the fire of Judgment Day. When we accept and join His enemies, we will be destroyed with them in the fire of His wrath.
Judgment and salvation
Isaiah 64:1 Oh that You wouldest rend the heavens (skies), that You wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at Your presence,
5 Bow Your skies, O Yahweh, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out Your arrows, and destroy them.
7 Send Your hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;
64:2 As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make Your name known to Your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at Your presence!
Matthew 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
2Peter 3:7 But the skies and the land, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Isaiah 66:14 And when you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of Yahweh shall be known toward His servants, and His indignation toward His (hated) enemies.
66:15 For, behold, Yahweh will come with fire, and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire.
Hebrew 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire. (Deut 4:24, 9:3)
66:16 For by fire and by His sword will Yahweh plead with all flesh: and the slain of Yahweh shall be many.
66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst (idol worshipers), eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse (entangler, attacker), shall be consumed together, saith Yahweh.
The false “church” doctrines of personal salvation. “Just believe” and “accept Him” and by your own declaration, you are “saved”. A Jewish Jesus, the food laws and other laws were “done away with”. Or...
The doctrine of Christ. “Just obey” and “seek knowledge and understanding of Him” because it is He who accepts you, and if you practice His ways you will be “preserved”.
Jeremiah 8:9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of Yahweh; and what wisdom is in them?
8:10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness (greedy for gain), from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
8:11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
The Geneva reads: 11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people with sweet words, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.
In other words, speaking superficially.
8:12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination (worshiping false idols)? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation (punishment) they shall be cast down, saith Yahweh.
Job 40:12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
8:13 I will surely consume them, saith Yahweh: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.
It matters Who and what we believe in. Believe in Yahweh and be exhalted. Believe in the counterfeit and be consumed.
Jeremiah 17:3 O My mountain in the field, I will give your substance and all your treasures to the spoil, and your high places for sin, throughout all your borders.
High places of pagan worship. My mountain is a reference to the kingdom of Judah.
17:4 And you, even yourself, shalt discontinue from your heritage that I gave you; and I will cause you to serve your (hated) enemies in the land which you knowest not: for you have kindled a fire in Mine anger, which shall burn for ever.
Our ancestors, as well as ourselves, have already kindled the fire of anger in Yahweh. When He returns, it will consume everything that is not righteous.
Jeremiah 19:4 Because they have forsaken Me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents (children);
The Septuagint starts as: “Because they forsook Me, and profaned this place...”
Deuteronomy 28:20 Yahweh shall send upon you cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that you settest your hand unto for to do, until you be destroyed, and until you perish quickly; because of the wickedness of your doings, whereby you hast forsaken Me.
19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal (Lord), to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into My mind:
19:6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.
19:7 And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their (hated) enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcases will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven (sky), and for the beasts of the earth (land).
19:8 And I will make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.
Micah 6:16 For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and you walk in their counsels; that I should make you a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore you shall bear the reproach of My people.
19:9 And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness (oppression), wherewith their (hated) enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten (oppress) them. (Lev 26:27-29; Deut 28:53)
19:10 Then shalt you break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with you,
The earthen vessel he got from the potter in verse 1.
19:11 And shalt say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.
Psalm 2:9 You shalt break them with a rod of iron; you shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
Isaiah 30:14 And He shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; He shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.
19:12 Thus will I do unto this place, saith Yahweh, and to the inhabitants thereof, and even make this city as Tophet:
Tophet, a place of fire. Tophet was near Jerusalem. They burned trash there as well. Fitting.
19:13 And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven (the sky- constellations), and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.
2Kings 23:10 And he (Josiah) defiled 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.
A major crime was the burning of children in the fire to Molech. For this Yahweh sent the Babylonians to burn Jerusalem down. What do you think He is going to do with the world, that has been defiled and profaned by the enemies of Christ and those who join them?
Jeremiah 32:29 And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke Me to anger.
When Yahweh sent the Chaldeans (Babylonians) to punish Israel for their idolatry and race-mixing, they burned all the houses down too because much sin and idolatry was practiced on the rooftops. Yahweh will make a full end of all iniquity, all evil, all the children of Satan, and all those of us that follow them. The ignorant and the educated that err will be burned in the fire of His wrath.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
Lamentations 2:3 He hath cut off in His fierce anger all the horn of Israel: He hath drawn back His right hand from before the enemy, and He burned against Jacob like a flaming fire, which devoureth round about.
This fierce anger was against the children of Jacob because they went a whoring after other races and idols. Israel was punished by the Babylonians. This was not a permanent destruction, but rather a lesson to learn, which we as a people never learn from. The final chance to learn is now. When Yahshua Christ returns, game over.
From the Apocalypse of Baruch
Baruch 44:6 For the judgment of the Mighty One shall (thereby) be made known,
And His ways, which, though past finding out, are right.
7 For if you endure and persevere in His fear,
And do not forget His law,
The times shall change over you for good.
And you shall see the consolation of Zion.
8 Because whatever is now is nothing,
But that which shall be is very great.
9 For everything that is corruptible shall pass away,
And everything that dies shall depart,
And all the present time shall be forgotten,
Nor shall there be any remembrance of the present time, which is defiled with evils.
10 For that which runs now runs unto vanity,
And that which prospers shall quickly fall and be humiliated.
11 For that which is to be shall be the object of desire,
And for that which comes afterwards shall we hope;
For it is a time that passes not away,
12 And the hour comes which abides for ever.
And the new world (comes) which does not turn to corruption those who depart to its blessedness,
And has no mercy on those who depart to torment,
And leads not to perdition those who live in it.
13 For these are they who shall inherit that time which has been spoken of,
And theirs is the inheritance of the promised time.
14 These are they who have acquired for themselves treasures of wisdom,
And with them are found stores of understanding,
And from mercy have they not withdrawn,
And the truth of the law I have they preserved.
15 For to them shall be given the world to come,
But the dwelling of the rest who are many shall be in the fire.'
Baruch 48:38 And it shall come to pass at the self-same time,
That a change of times shall manifestly appeal to every man,
Because in all those times they polluted themselves
And they practiced oppression,
And walked every man in his own works,
And remembered not the law of the Mighty One.
39 Therefore a fire shall consume their thoughts,
And in flame shall the meditations of their reins be tried;
For the Judge shall come and will not tarry.
40 Because each of the inhabitants of the earth knew when he was transgressing.
But My Law they knew not by reason of their pride.
41 But many shall then assuredly weep,
Yea, over the living more than over the dead.'
42 And I answered and said:
'O Adam, what have you done to all those who are born from you?
And what will be said to the first Eve who hearkened to the serpent?
43 For all this multitude are going to corruption,
Nor is there any numbering of those whom the fire devours.
44 But again I will speak in Your presence.
45 You, O Yahweh, my Elohiym, know what is in Your creature (creation).
46 For You did of old command the dust to produce Adam, and You know the number of those who are born from him, and how far they have sinned before You, who have existed and not confessed You as their Creator.
47 And as regards all these their end shall convict them, and Your law which they have transgressed shall requite them on Your day (Judgment Day).'
REQUI'TE, v.t. [from quit, L. cedo.]
1. To repay either good or evil; in a good sense, to recompense; to return an equivalent in good; to reward.
In a bad sense, to retaliate; to return evil for evil; to punish.
Baruch 59:1 'And the bright fourth waters which you have seen are the advent of Moses and Aaron and Miriam and Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb and of all those like them.
2 For at that time the lamp of the eternal law shone on all those who sat in darkness, which announced to them that believe the promise of their reward, and to them that deny, the torment of fire which is reserved for them.
Job 21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.
2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Baruch 63:5 And the Mighty One heard him, for Hezekiah was wise,
And He had respect unto his prayer, because he was righteous.
6 And thereupon the Mighty One commanded Ramiel His angel who speaks with you.
7 And I went forth and destroyed their multitude, the number of whose chiefs only was a hundred and eighty-five thousand, and each one of them had an equal number (at his command).
8 And at that time I burned their bodies within, but their raiment and arms I preserved outwardly, in order that the still more wonderful deeds of the Mighty One might appear, and that thereby His name might be spoken of throughout the whole earth.
2Kings 19:34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for Mine own sake, and for My servant David's sake.
19:35 And it came to pass that night, that the messenger of Yahweh 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.
19:36 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.
9 And Zion was saved and Jerusalem delivered: Israel also was freed from tribulation.
10 And all those who were in the holy land rejoiced, and the name of the Mighty One was glorified so that it was spoken of
11 These are the bright waters which you have seen.
Baruch 64:1 'And the black ninth waters which you have seen, this is all the wickedness which was in the days of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah.
2 For he wrought much impiety, and he slew the righteous, and he wrested judgment, and he shed the blood of the innocent, and wedded women he violently polluted, and he overturned the altars, and destroyed their offerings, and drove forth their priests lest they should minister in the sanctuary.
3 And he made an image with five faces: four of them looked to the four winds, and the fifth on the summit of the image as an adversary of the zeal of the Mighty One.
4 And then wrath went forth from the presence of the Mighty One to the intent that Zion should be rooted out, as also it befell in your days. But also against the two tribes and a half went forth a decree that they should also be led away captive, as you have now seen.
5 And to such a degree did the impiety of Manasseh increase, that it removed the praise of the Most High from the sanctuary.
7 On this account Manasseh was at that time named 'the impious," and finally his abode was in the fire.
8 For though his prayer was heard with the Most High, finally, when he was cast into the brazen horse and the brazen horse was melted, it served as a sign unto him for the hour.
9 For he had not lived perfectly, for he was not worthy—but that thenceforward he might know by whom finally he should be tormented.
10 For he who is able to benefit is also able to torment.
Manasseh prayed a wonderful prayer, but continued to sin. There is no such thing as “once saved always saved”. You can repent and “be saved”, but unless you continue living in The Way, you will end up burned, just like Manasseh. (see prayer of Manasseh in Septuagint)
Ezekiel 5:1 And you, son of man (adam), take you a sharp knife (sword), take you a barber's razor, and cause it to pass upon your head and upon your beard: then take you balances to weigh, and divide the hair.
5:2 You shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and you shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part you shalt scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them.
This is representative of what He is going to do with His people.
5:3 You shalt also take thereof (of the hair) a few in number, and bind them in your skirts.
5:4 Then take of them (the hair) again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel.
5:5 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.
5:6 And she hath changed (rebelled) My judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and My statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have refused My judgments and My statutes, they have not walked in them.
Jerusalem is often representative of the people, we Israelites. These verses state that. Jerusalem (we, the people) have been set in the midst of nations and countries, we (Jerusalem) have been more wicked than the nations and refused Yahweh's statutes and judgments. Then and now.
5:7 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in My statutes, neither have kept My judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you;
Septuagint reads: “...Because your occasion for sin has been taken from the nations round about you...”
We learn wickedness from the other nations and practice their traditions.
10 For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto Kedar, and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing.
11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but My people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.
5:8 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I, even I, am against you, and will execute judgments in the midst of you in the sight of the nations.
5:9 And I will do in you that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all your abominations.
Lamentations 4:6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of My people (Jerusalem) is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her.
Why would the sins of Israel be greater than of Sodom? Because Israel had Yahweh's law and should have known better. Look what happened to Sodom, what happens to our people will be far worse because we are missing the mark of our duty. The Lake of Fire awaits the Devil's children and those of Yahweh's children that practice the abominations of the Jews (Canaanites/Edomites).
Ezekiel 22:17 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
22:18 Son of man (adam), the house of Israel is to Me become dross: all they are brass (bronze), and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are even the dross of silver.
DROSS, n. [G.] the scum or extraneous matter of metals, thrown off in the process of melting. Waste matter; refuse; any worthless matter separated from the better part; impure matter.
22:19 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you are all become dross (worthless), behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.
Isaiah 1:22 Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water: (race mixed, idolatrous, worthless)
Psalm 119:119 You puttest away all the wicked of the land like dross: therefore I love Your testimonies.
22:20 As they gather silver, and brass (bronze), and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in Mine anger and in My fury, and I will leave you there, and melt you.
22:21 Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of My wrath, and you shall be melted in the midst thereof.
22:22 As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall you be melted in the midst thereof; and you shall know that I Yahweh have poured out My fury upon you.
The leaders, prophets and priests were corrupt and evil, preying on the people for gain.
At this time in Jerusalem there was not one example of righteousness among the men of Jerusalem. The gaps were left open for the enemy to enter.
22:31 Therefore have I poured out Mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith Yahweh GOD.
Judgment was also delivered through the Assyrian and Babylonian invasions, which included death by the sword, taken captive and enslaved, and destruction. Judgment Day will be by fire.
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Chapter 23 is a parable of two sisters. The house of Judah and the house of Israel. Both houses became apostate whores. They cast aside the law and Yahweh and became idolatrous pagan race mixers that adopted the ways of the (Jews) Canaanite and Edomite nations.
Ezekiel 23:25 And I will set My jealousy against you, and they shall deal furiously with you: they shall take away your nose and your ears; and your remnant shall fall by the sword: they shall take your sons and your daughters; and your residue shall be devoured by the fire.
Cutting off the nose and ears were actual punishments for traitors and those who disgraced the nation. Again, these judgments and punishments came in many forms. When The Judgment Day comes, expect FIRE!
Ezekiel 24:6 Wherefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose scum (rust) is therein, and whose scum (rust) is not gone out of it! bring it out piece by piece; let no lot fall upon it.
24:7 For her (Jerusalem) blood is in the midst of her; she set it upon the top of a rock; she poured it not upon the ground, to cover it with dust;
Leviticus 17:13 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers (kinsmen) that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.
Deuteronomy 12:16 Only you shall not eat the blood; you shall pour it upon the earth as water.
24:8 That it might cause fury to come up to take vengeance; I have set her blood upon the top of a rock, that it should not be covered.
Her sins were not even hid. Sinning out in the open. A usury and race mixing party. Like today!
24:9 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great.
Shedding blood and mixing blood, eating blood, sacrificing children. Like today! Only it's called war in the name of 'peace', diversity is a good thing, and abortion, child trafficking and porn.
24:10 Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the bones be burned.
24:11 Then set it empty upon the coals thereof, that the brass (bronze) of it may be hot, and may burn, and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it, that the scum (rust) of it may be consumed.
24:12 She hath wearied herself with lies, and her great scum (rust) went not forth out of her: her scum (rust) shall be in the fire.
The rust is her corruption.
24:13 In your filthiness is lewdness (unchastity): because I have purged you, and you wast not purged, you shalt not be purged from your filthiness any more, till I have caused My fury to rest upon you.
24:14 I Yahweh have spoken it: it shall come to pass, and I will do it; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent (change My mind); according to your ways, and according to your doings, shall they judge you, saith Yahweh GOD.
Yahweh punished our ancestors then, He punishes us now, and He will punish us once and for all when He returns. And it will be by fire! Why?
Deuteronomy 4:24 For Yahweh thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
Ezekiel 38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith Yahweh GOD, that My fury shall come up in My face.
38:19 For in My jealousy (ardour of anger) and in the fire of My wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
The land of Israel is wherever true Israel dwells. Europe, America, the white nations of the world. These are dual prophecies, and the latter ones are just around the corner.
Gog are the people of the land Magog. Gog are the Japhethite/Hittite/Mongol Jews of the kingdom of Khazaria, the land of Magog. They make up 95% of Jews today, they have no relation to Abraham or the children of Israel. The other branch of Jews are the Sephardic Jews, these are descendants of Esau (Edomites).
The Jews are children of Satan, descendants of Cain and Esau. They are of the SynaGOGue of Satan. John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Revelation 2:9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews (correctly, Judah), and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
They are our mortal enemies and will seek to destroy us until Prince Yahshua returns and destroys them, and the unrighteous of our people, with FIRE!
Nebuchadnezzar erected a golden image, and commanded that all people should fall down and worship it. Daniel's companions refused to comply and were thrown into a fiery furnace. However, they were miraculously preserved by the Son of God in the flames, and this was acknowledged by the king himself, who decreed that henceforth no one should say anything against the God of 'Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.' Similarily, we find that to succeed in this world everyone must bow before the power of money, as represented by gold, and to similar man-made institutions. Those who refuse to conform must suffer, but it is a fact that Christ stands with His people in their fiery trials.
The fiery furnace
Daniel 3:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits (90'), and the breadth thereof six cubits (9'): he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
3:2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes (satraps), the governors (prefects), and the captains (governors), the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
3:3 Then the princes (satraps), the governors (prefects), and captains (governors), the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
3:4 Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages,
3:5 That at what time you hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, you fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
3:6 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
3:7 Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
3:8 Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Judahites.
3:9 They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever.
3:10 Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image:
3:11 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
3:12 There are certain Judahites whom you hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded you: they serve not your gods, nor worship the golden image which you hast set up.
3:13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king.
3:14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not you serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
3:15 Now if you be ready that at what time you hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, you fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if you worship not, you shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful (we have no need) to answer you in this matter.
3:17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.
3:18 But if not, be it known unto you, O king, that we will not serve your gods, nor worship the golden image which you hast set up.
3:19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
3:20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
3:21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen (pattiysh- unknown meaning), and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
3:22 Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
3Maccabees 6:6 When the three friends in the land of Babylon of their own will exposed their lives to the fire rather than serve vain things, thou didst send a dewy coolness through the fiery furnace, and bring the fire upon all their adversaries.
3:23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
3:24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form (appearance) of the fourth is like the (a) Son of God (bar elahiym- angelic creature).
Isaiah 43:2 When you passest through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walkest through the fire, you shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.
3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, you servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
3:27 And the princes (satraps), governors (prefects), and captains (governors), and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
They had faith (allegiance) in Yahweh's delivering power.
Hebrews 11:34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
3:28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent His angel (messenger), and delivered His servants that trusted in Him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
3:29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.
3:30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.
4Maccabees 13:9 Brothers, may we die brotherly for the law. Let us imitate the three young men in Assyria (Babylon) who despised the equally afflicting furnace.
16:21 And the righteous Daniel was cast unto the lions; and Ananias, and Azarias, and Misael, were slung out into a furnace of fire; yet they endured through God.
If you can imagine the world becoming a fiery furnace when Christ returns, then you have an idea of how it's all going to go down. In FLAMES! Those of us who have died and those of us who are living will be preserved, translated, and revealed in the fire upon our King's return. Welcome to the Kingdom of Righteousness. Purged by FIRE!
Hosea 7:5 In the day of our king the princes (officials) have made him sick with bottles (poison) 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 (assassinated): 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.
As verse 5 stated, poisoned with wine. Four of the last six kings were assassinated by poison.
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 (Foreigners) 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.
Here are the same verses in the Septuagint.
Septuagint Hosea 7:5 In the days of our kings, the princes began to be inflamed with wine: he stretched out his hand with pestilent fellows.
7:6 Wherefore their hearts are inflamed as an oven, while they rage all the night: Ephraim (Israel) is satisfied with sleep; the morning is come; he is burnt up as a flame of fire.
7:7 They are all heated like an oven, and have devoured their judges: all their kings are fallen; there was not among them one that called on Me.
When we are asleep and leave it up to unrighteous leaders, we get burned. If we continue to sleep and allow the unrighteous to lead, we will be consumed with the unrighteous in the furnace of Yahweh's wrath which is Judgment Day.
Amos 7:4 Thus hath Yahweh GOD shewed unto me: and, behold, Yahweh GOD called to contend (for a trial) by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.
The Septuagint reads: “...Yahweh called for judgment by fire,...”.
The Hebrew has: “...Yahweh Elohiym called for a trial by fire,...”.
7:5 Then said I, O Yahweh GOD, cease, I beseech You: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
The people of Israel in Samaria had been greatly reduced from their former glory.
7:6 Yahweh repented (was regretful) for this: This also shall not be, saith Yahweh GOD.
7:7 Thus He shewed me: and, behold, Yahweh stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in His hand.
7:8 And Yahweh said unto me, Amos, what seest you? And I said, A plumbline. Then said Yahweh, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of My people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more:
Yahweh divides the people with a plumbline, which ostensibly determines which of them would survive and go into captivity, and which of them would remain behind, either dead or alive.
These examples of trials by fire are punishments for correction. When the final fire of Judgment Day arrives it won't be a punishment for correction, it will be justice. You will either have passed the test and remain, glorified, or you will be consumed.
Amos 9:13 Behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
A promise that Israel shall once again live bountifully, a sign of hope in their captivity.
Joel 3:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of Yahweh, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
These prophecies were of their hope after punishment and captivity. They also translate to what will happen at the end of days when Yahshua returns in a blaze of glory and consumes everything evil and corrupt, and His faithful remnant shining in the new heavens and the new earth.
The prophecy of Obadiah is a prophecy concerning Edom, that nation which descended from Esau, Jacob's brother. The Jews are descendants of Esau (and Cain).
Obadiah 1:15 For the day of Yahweh is near upon all the heathen (nations): as you hast done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head.
Ezekiel 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of Yahweh is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen (nations).
Habakkuk 2:8 Because you hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil you; because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.
1:16 For as you (Jews) have drunk upon My holy mountain (sons of Jacob), so shall all the heathen (nations) drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.
The Septuagint has these verses thus: “15 For the day of Yahweh is near upon all the nations: as you have done, so shall it be done to you: your recompense shall be returned on your own head. 16 For as you hast drunk upon My holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink wine; they shall drink, and go down, and be as if they were not.”
Why would the day of the Lord be upon all nations because of the Edomite affliction of Israel? Because this is not an immediate prophecy: we still have Edom in the world. This is an end-time prophecy.
This is where we are today. All of the formerly white Christian nations, the “mountains of Israel”, are now governed by Satan and overrun by aliens (other races).
1:17 But upon mount Zion (figurative of Israel in the future) shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness (set apart); and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
1:18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for Yahweh hath spoken it. (Zec 12:6)
There will be nothing left of the house of Esau, but there shall also be nothing left of all the nations that Esau brings against the children of Israel in the last days, which we suffer presently. That is our Christian hope.
Micah 1:4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.
Here Micah uses poetic language and a word-picture description of God's presence as a means of connecting His judgment to the wrath which is about to come upon the people of the land in the form of the Assyrian invasions.
1:7 And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate: for she gathered it of the hire of an harlot, and they shall return to the hire of an harlot.
Yahweh would “discover the foundations” of Samaria, and these are the idols which were gathered “of the hire of a harlot”. This is a reference to an intercourse in trade and an unlawful communion, sexual and otherwise, with the non-Israel nations.
If we keep seeing examples of wax melting and fire burning, just what do you expect at the end of the age? Anything different? No. It will be the hottest burning furnace ever!
Nahum 1:5 The mountains quake at Him, and the hills melt, and the earth (land) is burned (lifted up) at His presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Mountains and hills are analogies for nations large and small.
1:6 Who can stand before His indignation (fury)? and who can abide in the fierceness of His anger? His fury (rage) is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by Him.
1:7 Yahweh is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust (seek refuge) in Him.
1:8 But with an overrunning flood He will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue His (hated) enemies.
Nahum is referring to the children of Israel who are obedient to their God, indicating that they would be looked after by Him. He is a strong hold in a day of trouble, and therefore keeping His ways one may abide His anger. On the other hand, destruction is certain to those of His enemies.
1:9 What do you imagine against Yahweh? He will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
1:10 For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.
2Samuel 23:6 But the sons of Belial shall be all of them as thorns thrust away, because they cannot be taken with hands:
Zephaniah 1:17 And I will bring distress upon men (adam), that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against Yahweh: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh (bowels) as the dung.
Deuteronomy 28:29 And you shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and you shalt not prosper in your ways: and you shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save you.
The “great day of Yahweh” here is a reference to the judgment which is about to come upon Judah by the hand of the Babylonians as a result of their sin.
1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of Yahweh's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy: for He shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
Ezekiel 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Yahweh: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
More examples of temporary destruction by fire. The end times Judgment Day of Yahweh will not be temporary.
At this time in Zechariah the high priest of Judah was Joshua. The son of Josedech.
Joshua is Yahshua in the Hebrew, the same word used for salvation, and the name of Christ.
The Septuagint and some others have Joshua as Yahshua, the Christ.
This may have dual meanings.
Zechariah 3:1 (Zechariah speaking) And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel (messenger) of Yahweh, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him (as an adversary). (Ezra 5:2; Rev 12:10)
3:2 And Yahweh said unto Satan, Yahweh rebuke you, O Satan; even Yahweh that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke you: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
3:3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel (messenger).
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all become as an unclean, and all our righteousnesses as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
3:4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him (Joshua) he said, Behold, I have caused your iniquity to pass from you, and I will clothe you with change of raiment (priestly robe).
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 of salvation, He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Luke 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: (parable of Prodigal Son)
Swift- This was Joshua, with Satan contending against him. This is symbolic. It is explaining that man is not going to be the victor by himself. That man with all his righteousness, is just filthy garments. But God said He was going to remove these filthy garments from Joshua and then clothe him with righteousness. This is God's covenant with everyone of Israel. "Arise and shine, your light has come, and the Glory of God has risen upon you."-
When Yahshua Christ consumes the world in His fire, those of us whom He finds in allegiance to Him will be clothed in righteousness, Shekinah Glory, the body Adam had before he fell and the body Christ ascended in. Everyone else will be consumed as stubble.
Zechariah 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith Yahweh, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
Romans 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace (favor).
13:9 And I will bring the third part (the remnant) through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on My name (Yahweh), and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, Yahweh is My God.
Isaiah 48:10 Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.
Those who believe the “church” doctrine of the “rapture” better read verse 9 again.
If you are not tried through fire, you are not His child. This trial is our test here on earth. If you build on truth and knowledge, and practice The Way, when our Prince returns you will be refined. This can't happen if you escape in the “rapture”, or praise a Jewish Jesus. That's like calling Him a Devil Saint!
Malachi 3:2 But who may abide the day of His (Christ's) coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth? for He is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:
Malachi 4:1 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.
4:2 But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with (spiritual) healing in His wings; and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
4:3 And you 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.
Matthew 3:11 (John speaking) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but He that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire:
John's commission was to cleanse the Levitical Priesthood, and prepare Christ for sacrifice. Baptism with the Holy Spirit is being immersed in knowledge and understanding.
Baptism of death.
The last part of verse 11 is baptism with fire! This life is our test to prove if we will follow The Way and the laws given by Yahweh. If we live a life in obedience and allegiance to Christ, when we are baptized in the fiery furnace of His return, we will pass through it.
If you still don't believe that the end of the age will be a consuming fire, would you believe Christ's explanation?
Matthew 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
Those who do not grasp the truth of the Word are most susceptible to false doctrines and calumnious lies.
13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon (at once) with joy receiveth it;
Isaiah 58:2 Yet they seek Me daily, and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of Me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.
31 And they come unto you as the people cometh, and they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
32 And, lo, you art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear your words, but they do them not.
13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended (entrapped).
Root in the Word comes only through study of the Word itself, along with practice (doing).
13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world (age), and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
Materialistic, prefers the cares of this age, or society.
13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
13:24 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not you sow good seed in your field? from whence then hath it tares?
13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt you then that we go and gather them up?
13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and His disciples came unto Him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
When Christ spoke to mixed multitudes, He spoke in parables. He explains why when He is alone with His disciples.
Some people cannot hear because they are not His sheep (not Israelites). Some don't want to hear, some want to hear but their faith (allegiance) is too weak, and others hear loud and clear.
13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; (Yahshua)
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The Greek word for 'Word' is logos, which means intent, or The Plan. What was the plan? To exhibit righteousness. Christ did that. Perfectly. Adam was supposed to do that. The Word, or The Plan is that we imitate our Prince who fulfilled it.
13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
The children of the kingdom, the wheat that bows when ripe, are those of the race of Adam. Israelites. Descendants of the 12 tribes of Jacob Israel. The Anglo-Saxon nations of the world.
The children of the wicked one, the tares, which are a poisonous weed and stands straight up in arrogance, are those of the race of the descendants of Cain and Esau. Canaanites/Edomites. Jews.
13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world (age); and the reapers are the angels.
The devil is the 'serpent' in the garden and father of Cain.
The harvest is the end of the age, the results of our disobedience and allowing the enemy in.
13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world (age).
Wait, didn't Jesus miss the part about the “rapture” first?
13:41 The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
So the “churches” teach that Jesus makes a “fly by” and takes them away in the “rapture”.
In verse 41, Christ Himself explains what happens. Read 41 again. If you are 'raptured' then you have offended and do iniquity.
13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
How bout another one straight from Christ's mouth.
13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind (race):
The word is kind in the KJV, but since the Greek word is genos it is race here.
Genos means diversity, stock, offspring, nation, race.
13:48 Which, when it (the net) was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world (age): the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
The wicked are severed, the wicked are gathered and burned. The righteous remain. When Yahweh destroyed the land with the flood, the wicked were drowned and washed away, and Noah and his family remained.
Continue believing what your preacher or “church” teaches you and you will be cast into the furnace of fire with the wicked. Seriously. You either believe scripture and the words of Christ, or you believe the lies of the ignorant and/or deliberate deceivers. It matters what you believe in.Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Matthew 18:7 Woe unto the world (society) because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
Offences are traps, snares, stumbling blocks. Woe to those that set them.
18:8 Wherefore if your hand or your foot offend you, cut them off, and cast them from you: it is better for you to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
18:9 And if your eye offend you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
This society and it's stumbling blocks cause us to sin and stray from The Way. If you follow society you will feel the FIRE!
Luke 12:41 Then Peter said unto Him, Prince, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
12:42 And the Prince said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
12:43 Blessed is that servant, whom his master when he cometh shall find so doing.
12:44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.
12:45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My master delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
12:46 The master of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
If Yahweh has enriched us, it is only that we may “give the allotment of grain at the proper time”, that we may be good stewards and in turn provide for our brethren. If He returns and finds us doing so, we shall have a great reward. If He finds us otherwise, then we have already had our reward!
12:47 And that servant, which knew his master's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
Having this knowledge and not acting on it, we invite far more punishment upon ourselves than those who are ignorant.
12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Leviticus 5:17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of Yahweh; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.
1Timothy 1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I (Paul) obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; (Gen 19)
17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
2Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Prince Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,
17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
17:32 Remember Lot's wife.
17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
17:34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
17:35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
17:36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
In verses 34-35 'men' and 'women' do not appear in the Greek texts. That's why the KJV italicizes. Verse 36 does not exist in the older texts and can only be found in the Codex Bezae (known as 'bizarre') and two 11th century and later texts.
17:37 And they answered and said unto Him, Where, Prince? And He said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.
Job 39:30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.
Those being taken are not being “raptured”. The parable of the wheat and the tares, the parable of the net, the parable of the goats and the sheep, Noah's flood, all indicate that the wicked are removed from society first, and that they are at that time going to be destroyed. The prayer which Christians are taught to pray by Christ indicates that the good people are left behind, so that things be “on earth as they are in heaven”. It is, in Revelation chapter 21, the city of God which descends to men, and not men which ascend to God. It is, in the promises of the prophets which are also quoted by Paul, the tabernacle of God which comes to dwell with men, and not men who ascend to dwell with God. Real Christians want to be left behind! Real Christians will survive the coming FIRE!
John 15:1 I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman.
Symbolic statements of the tree, the Adamic race, made in the image of Yahweh.
15:2 Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
Ephesians 5:26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water in the word,
15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.
Colossians 1:23 If ye continue in the faith (allegiance) grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope (expectation) of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creation which is under heaven; whereof I Paul (and Christ) am made a minister;
15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in Him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.
A tree does not have many genetics, it is one DNA. Christ is one DNA (Spirit). His people are the same DNA. Without His DNA, we can do nothing. We are rejected. So don't race mix.
15:6 If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
Those who are not of Him, and those who are of Him that reject Him will be thrown in the fire.
15:7 If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
1Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
Speaking to them in terms they can understand.
3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
James 3:16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
3:4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
3:5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Prince gave to every man?
3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
Psalm 62:12 Also unto Thee, O Yahweh, belongeth mercy: for Thou renderest to every man according to his work.
3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
Paul is telling them to avoid “doubtful disputations”. Arguments that divide. Each disciple has his own style.
Each person has particular duties or gifts, when working together all are of one.
3:10 According to the grace (favor) of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
Paul founded the assemblies in Corinth.
3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
3:12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
3:13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
3:14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved (preserved); yet so as by (although consequently through) fire.
Anything built without Christ will be consumed. This life, our works and actions will either stand or fall, depending on our faith (allegiance) with Christ.
It appears, in the last clause of verse 15, that after your works are tried, YOU are tried.
3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
2Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Our bodies are the temple of Yahweh. If you are not walking in Christ's example, then Yahweh cannot dwell in a corrupted vessel (temple, body).
3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world (age), let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
Proverbs 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear Yahweh, and depart from evil.
3:19 For the wisdom of this world (society) is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
The Greek: 19 For the wisdom of this Society is folly before Yahweh; indeed it is written, He seizes the cunning in their villiany.
1Corinthians 16:22 If any man love not the Prince Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
Anathema is a Greek word meaning 'accursed'.
Maranatha is a Hebrew word meaning 'the approaching judgment'. The return of our Prince.
It can mean 'until He cometh'.
Mara means 'to rebel'. Natha means 'tear out, overthrow'.
Anathema Maranatha- He must be accursed, a rebel (or, he who is a rebel), to be destroyed.
The return of our Prince will come with FLAMING FIRE!
2Thessalonians 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet (deserving), because that your faith (allegiance) groweth exceedingly, and the charity (love) of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
1:4 So that we ourselves glory (boast) in you in the churches (assemblies) of God for your patience and faith (allegiance) in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:
1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:
1:6 For indeed it is righteous with Yahweh to repay those afflicting you with affliction,
Revelation 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Prince, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them (children of the Devil) that dwell on the earth?
And Christ speaking to the Edomite scribes and Pharisees:
Matthew 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation (race, seed of Satan).
1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Prince Yahshua shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, (Rev 14:13, 1 Thes 4:16, Jude 14)
1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Prince Yahshua Christ:
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
2Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
1:9 Who (Those that know not Yahweh) shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Prince, and from the glory of His power;
Deuteronomy 33:2 And he said, Yahweh came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; He shined forth from mount Paran, and He came with ten thousands of saints: from His right hand went a fiery law for them. (10 Commandments)
1:10 When He shall come to be glorified (honored) in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Doesn't sound much different then the fiery furnace Abram was cast into or Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace in Babylon. Yahshua was with them in it and everything else was burned up.
The very presence of Yahshua when He returns will set this world ablaze. Do you have the obedience and allegiance of Abram and of the three boys in Babylon?
2Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity (lawlessness, unrighteousness) doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already operating, he (man of sin) prevailing only presently until he should be out of the way,
2:8 And then shall that Wicked (the lawless) be revealed, whom the Prince shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: (Dan 7:10)
Isaiah 11:4 But with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked.
Hebrews 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
Exodus 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because Yahweh descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
12:27 And this word, “Yet once more”, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
The things that Yahweh created, or planted, or that are built upon Him, will remain when He returns. Remember your works being tried? 1Cor chapter 3.
12:28 Wherefore we receiving (taking possession of) a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace (favor), whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear (awe):
12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Exodus 24:17 And the sight of the glory of Yahweh was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
Deuteronomy 4:24 For Yahweh your God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
2Peter 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Prince and Saviour: (Jude 17)
3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
Isaiah 5:19 That say, Let Him make speed, and hasten His work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
Jeremiah 17:15 Behold, they say unto me, Where is the word of Yahweh? let it come now.
Talking about those who lost their faith (moral conviction, allegiance).
3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Willing ignorance is the same as “just believing”. Willing ignorance is believing your preacher or “church” over the scriptures. Willing ignorance is willingly avoiding closer examination of the Word.
3:6 Whereby the world (society) that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
3:7 But the heavens (skies) and the earth (land), which are now, by the same Word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Matthew 25:41 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Prince as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (Psa 90:4)
3:9 The Prince is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness (delay); but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Hebrews 10:37 For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
3:10 But the day of the Prince will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
'burned up'. Some manuscripts have 'burned up', the older ones have 'discovered'. Either work.
Matthew 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.
3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation (conduct) and godliness,
3:12 Looking for and hasting (being anxious) unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
Verse 12 is not a question in the older manuscripts.
3:13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before Me, saith Yahweh, so shall your seed and your name remain.
The seed, descendants of Jacob Israel. If the gospel is for everybody, why does scripture always identify the children of Israel? Because the Bible is not universal. It is the book of the generations of Adam. It's our heritage.
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.
There will not be no ocean or water? No. The sea represents people. This would be the collection of Satan's kids and those that mixed with them.
Revelation 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
The 'water as a flood' are Satan's children and minions, the woman represents the bride, the children of Israel.
It is the Jews that push race-mixing, to carry us away of the flood, meaning race mix us out of existence.
3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things (righteousness), be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Prince is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest (twist, pervert), as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
We lost touch with our true heritage because of deception. Now our well meaning preachers are just repeating the distorted and perverted doctrine of our age old enemies, the Jews.
Judeo-Christianity is the result of this. Judaism and Christianity don't mix.
3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
3:18 But grow in grace (favor), and in the knowledge of our Prince and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory (honor) both now and for ever. Amen.
1Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Master of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
We must have a clear and fresh new mind. As a child. Unlearn the large amount of false teaching that we are used to, and grow in understanding.
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the day of the Prince, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
John was in a trance, consciousness on a different plain. (Acts 10:10, 2 Cor 12:2). He received a glimpse of the Day of Yahweh.
1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches (assemblies) which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks (menorah);
The seven-branched candlestick is first described in Exodus. This is an Israelite symbol.
1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks (menorah) one like unto the Son of man (Adam), clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
1:14 His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; (Dan 7:9, 10:6)
1:15 And His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.
Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel (messenger) of the church (assembly) of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; (Isa 65:16)
3:15 I know your works, that you art neither cold nor hot: I would you wert cold or hot.
Speaking of today's “churches”. Their heart is in the right place, but their knowledge and understanding is based on counterfeit doctrine. Even in this ignorance they are considered apostate.
3:16 So then because you art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
3:17 Because you sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that you art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
3:18 I counsel (advise) you to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that you mayest be rich; and white raiment, that you mayest be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you mayest see.
Isaiah 55:1 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.
Matthew 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
The “churches” buy of their doctrine which is but stubble in the fire. Yahshua wants you to buy of Him, it is His Word that is tried and true. “Church” doctrine is like starter fluid.
3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not you the chastening of the Almighty:
3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. (Sol 5:2, Luke 12:37)
We do not choose or “accept” Him. It is He who calls us. Read verse 20 again.
3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.
Overcometh, meaning continuing in the law, His word, learning, living in The Way. Overcoming the stumblingblocks of this satanic society.
3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches (assemblies).
Laodikeia is literally “righteous people”, from the Greek words laos and dikaios. Yet it may be shown that dikaios was understood in the Greek mind as being that which is deemed righteous by man, as opposed to another word, hosios, which denoted that which was deemed righteous by the gods, or rather by God.
Therefore the word may be interpreted here as denoting a self-righteous people, and thus the message fits the name of the assembly. The people are neither hot nor cold: they know the Gospel of God and claim to be Christians, but they care not for His will or His works.
LAODICEA (means peoples rights)
Time period predicted by Paul
Don’t rock the boat, don’t offend the enemy. Toleration.
Laodicea was founded between 261 and 246 BC near city of Colossae
Very few remains remain. Small city until after the Roman period began: then rapidly became great and rich, the center of banking and financial transactions. Destroyed by earthquake in 60 AD. Rebuilt without accepting Roman financial help.
Represents the “Christian church” of our own time.
Today’s “churches” consider themselves rich. Yet they are not rich in Yahweh. They participate in a perversion of true doctrine.
Men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, unholy, etc.
This is the last age before Yahshua Messiah returns, IN FLAMING FIRE!
Revelation 14:9 And the third angel (messenger) followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
The “mark” of the beast is not necessarily a physical mark. The people described in Revelation chapter 13, those who were trapped under the power of the papacy – which describes nearly all of the Children of Israel through the later Medieval period – they had no practical choice but to worship the beast, the papacy at that time, in order that they may survive in their communities.
We are trapped into the same thing today. Birth certificates, driver's license, social security number, bank accounts, credit cards, usury, immunizations, on and on.
The mark you need to accept is the obedience and allegiance to The Way.
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.
14:15 If ye love Me, keep My commandments.
Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
7:21 Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven.
Psalm 37:37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities (injustices).
It is evident, that the current world system, the illusion of security in consumerism, humanism, and global mercantilism, shall come crashing down upon those who worship the beast. Those people of God who do not worship the beast system, they should attempt to separate themselves from it so that when it does crash, they do not suffer its punishments.
18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Yahweh God who judgeth her.
Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.
Yahshua returns as judge, jury and executioner.
19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
19:13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.
2 Wherefore art you red in your apparel, and your garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?
3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with Me: for I will tread them in Mine anger, and trample them in My fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments, and I will stain all My raiment.
19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
19:15 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Isaiah 11:4 But with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked.
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
For a thousand years – for better or for worse – Christianity prevailed in Europe and Christian governance and was the general way of life.
20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
In the manuscripts verse 5 here contains only the words “This is the first restoration”. Resurrection is not the correct word here.
The beginning of verse 5 is an addition to the manuscripts, which found its way into certain texts after the 9th century AD. A catholic scribe and commentator, Andreas of Cesarea added it.
The 1000 years occurred from 800-1800 AD. After that was the first restoration.
1st restoration- the 1800's, Industrial revolution, population explosion, technology, Christians, etc.
20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection (restoration): on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
The Word certainly exploded and Christianity grew during the 1000 years. Those that were a part of spreading and receiving the gospel will not see the second death. In other words, those who have died during the Reformation warring for Christ have their reward waiting for them when He returns.
20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan (the Adversary) shall be loosed out of his prison,
20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
This has already happened, and it is the very reason why all of the nations of the world are deceived and under the control of the international Jew today! This process began with the di Medici popes and the acceptance of usury by Christendom, and culminated when the Jew was finally emancipated in Europe, at the time of the French Revolution and Napoleon Bonaparte. Satan had surely been locked away, the Jews and their usury kept apart from Christians, for a thousand years. Now with his emancipation he was free to go out and deceive the nations with his cries for liberty, equality, and fraternity, which today have all the world's goat nations threatening the very existence of the White Christian race.
20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (Is 8:8, Ez 38:9)
20:10 And the devil (the False Accuser) that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Now whether there is ever an actual military invasion of the White Christian nations by aliens does not matter. Already, all of the White Christian nations have been and are currently being overrun, looted and pillaged by aliens without a military. In many White nations today, genocide is being disguised merely as criminal behavior, and hidden behind statistics while reports everywhere are distorted or squelched by Jewish-controlled media outlets. Christendom is overrun by the aliens which hate the whore, while Whites who do stand up and speak out are persecuted even by those of their own race!
Revelation 21:5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
The Greek phrase concerning new things may have been translated “Behold, I shall do all new things!”
21:6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
'It is done' should be “They are made!”. This further substantiates the rendering in verse 5, “I shall make all new things”
21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
The keeping of the commandments of God means the keeping of the bloodline of Israel. The overcomers are all of those obedient Israelites who remain at the end of the age.
21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The second death is the final death, after Judgment.
You better lean on some true knowledge and understanding before Yahshua returns, or your TOAST!
The Shepherd of Hermas
Vision III 73 ¶ As for the rest of the stones which you sawest cast afar off from the tower, and running in the way, and tumbled out of the way into desert places, they are such as have believed indeed, but through their doubting have forsaken the true way, thinking that they could find a better. But they wander and are miserable, going into desolate ways.
74 Then for those stones which fell into the fire and were burnt, they are those who have for ever departed from the living God; nor doth it ever come into their hearts to repent, by reason of the affection which they bear to their lusts and wickednesses which they commit.
Vision IV 19 Go therefore, and relate to the elect of God the great things that He hath done for thee. And thou shalt say unto them, that this beast is the figure of the trial that is about to come.
20 If therefore, ye shall have prepared yourselves, ye may escape it, if your heart be pure and without spot; and if ye shall serve God all the rest of your days without complaint.
21 Cast all your cares upon Yahweh, and He will direct them. Believe in God, ye doubtful, because He can do all things; He can both turn away His wrath from you, and send you help and security.
22 Woe to the doubtful, to those who shall hear these words, and shall despise them: it had been better for them that they had not been born.
23 ¶ Then I asked her concerning the four colours which the beast had upon its head. But she answered me saying; Again thou art curious in that thou asketh concerning these things. But I said to her, Lady, shew me what they are.
24 Hear, said she; The black which thou sawest denotes the world in which you dwell. The fiery and bloody colour signifies that this age must be destroyed by fire and blood.
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
