Ezekiel was a Levite, a priest.
The word Jew is not used once.
Ezekiel uses the term 'Son of Adam' consistently, which shows that he was of pure Adamic seedline. Adam comes from adam H120. Defined as ruddy, to show blood (in the face), that is, flush or turn rosy, blush. This describes the white race.
While Jeremiah was the voice of Yahweh to Jerusalem (the house of Judah) in the last days of the Kings, Ezekiel was the voice of Yahweh in Babylon, where he was with the captive Israelites who had been transported from the Holy Land as a result of the first waves of foreign invasion. His message was to the 'whole House of Israel'.
In the book of the Kings, we saw the division of the chosen people into two kingdoms, which became known a Judah and Israel. Ezekiel prophesies their reunion, under the sign of two sticks.
Ezekiel was part of the second deportation to Babel around 597BC.
Ezekiel is writing in the fifth year of captivity while among the captives by the river Chebar.
Chebar was a great canal near the ancient city of Nippur in south Babylonia.
Ezekiel in Hebrew is Yechezqe'l meaning El (God) strengthens.
Ezekiel 1:1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens (skies) were opened, and I saw visions of God.
Chebar was a river in Assyria.
1:2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,
Ezekiel dated the time starting with the captivity of king Jehoiachin by the Babylonians.
2Kings 24:12 And Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes, and his officers: and the king of Babylon took him in the eighth year of his reign.
1:3 The word of Yahweh came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of Yahweh was there upon him.
1:4 (The vision) And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
19 Behold, a whirlwind of Yahweh is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
32 Thus saith Yahweh of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the land.
Revelation 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
1:5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man (adam).
1:6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
1:7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass (bronze).
Symbols of the Cherubims. The symbols of the banners of the leading tribes of Israel.
1:8 And they had the hands of a man (adam) under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
1:9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man (adam) (Reuben), and the face of a lion (Judah), on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox (Ephraim) on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle (Dan). (Num 2)
1:11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.
1:12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
1:14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.
Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man (adam) be.
1:15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth (ground) by the living creatures, with his four faces.
1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl (a gem): and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
1:17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
1:18 As for their rings (rims of the wheels), they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings (rims) were full of eyes round about them four.
Septuagint: 18 neither did their backs turn: and they were high: and I beheld them, and the backs of them four were full of eyes round about.
Zechariah 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of Yahweh, which run to and fro through the whole land.
Plummet is: to build, a stone, obtain children.
Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Yahweh God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
1:19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth (ground), the wheels were lifted up.
1:20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
Septuagint: 20 Wherever the cloud happened to be, there was the spirit ready to go: the wheels went and were lifted up with them; because the spirit of life was in the wheels.
We must understand these are visions and Ezekiel is describing these things by or as apparitions and animations.
1:21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth (ground), the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
Septuagint: 21 When those went, the wheels went; and when those stood, the wheels stood; and when those lifted themselves off the earth, they were lifted off with them: for the spirit of life was in the wheels.
Geneva: 21 When the beasts went, they went, & when they stood, they stood, and when they were lifted up from the ground, the wheels were lifted up besides them: for the spirit of the beasts was in the wheels.
1:22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible (reverenced, awesome) crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.
1:23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.
1:24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host (army): when they stood, they let down their wings. (Rev 1:4-15, 19:6)
1:25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.
1:26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man (adam) above upon it.
1:27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.
1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Yahweh. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.
Revelation 4:3 And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
Revelation 10:1 And I saw another mighty messenger come down from the sky, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon His head, and His face was as it were the sun, and His feet as pillars of fire:
Ezekiel 2:1 And He (Yahweh) said unto me, Son of man (son of Adam), stand upon your feet, and I will speak unto you.
2:2 And the spirit entered into me when He spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard Him that spake unto me.
2:3 And He said unto me, Son of man (adam), I send you to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against Me: they and their fathers have transgressed against Me, even unto this very day.
2:4 For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send you unto them; and you shalt say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD.
2:5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
2:6 And you, son of man (adam), be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with you, and you dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. (Jer 1:8,17)
Briers (H5621) and thorns (H5544) can also mean, they resist (H5621) and make light (H5544) of you.
Scorpions is a figurative of enemies.
2:7 And you shalt speak My words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
2:8 But you, son of man (adam), hear what I say unto you; Be not you rebellious like that rebellious house: open your mouth, and eat that I give you.
2:9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
2:10 And He spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
Warning to Israel
Ezekiel 3:1 Moreover He said unto me, Son of man (adam), eat that you findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.
3:2 So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat that roll.
This scroll is the torah.
3:3 And He said unto me, Son of man (adam), cause your belly to eat, and fill your bowels with this roll that I give you. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. (Rev 10:9-10)
3:4 And He said unto me, Son of man (adam), go, get you unto the house of Israel, and speak with My words unto them.
3:5 For you art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language (difficult to understand), but to the house of Israel;
Yahweh is sending Ezekiel, who is of the House of Judah, to the Israelites of the house of Israel that are in captivity as well. The House of Israel is the northern 10 tribes.
3:6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words you canst not understand. Surely, had I sent you to them, they would have hearkened unto you.
Matthew 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
15:24 But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
3:7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto you; for they will not hearken unto Me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
3:8 Behold, I have made your face strong (hard, stubborn) against their faces, and your forehead strong (hard, stubborn) against their foreheads.
Ezekiel is going to be as hard and stubborn to them about the Word as they are hard and stubborn against hearing the Word.
3:9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
3:10 Moreover He said unto me, Son of man (adam), all My words that I shall speak unto you receive in your heart, and hear with your ears.
3:11 And go, get you to them of the captivity, unto the children of your people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
3:12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing (earthquake), saying, Blessed be the glory of Yahweh from His place.
3:13 I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing (earthquake).
3:14 So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of Yahweh was strong upon me.
3:15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished (appalled) among them seven days.
Septuagint: 15 Then I passed through the air and came into the captivity, and went round to them that dwelt by the river of Chobar who were there; and I sat there seven days, conversant in the midst of them.
Telabib means hill of barley, or mounds of green growth of barley.
Passed through the air cannot be translated into Telabib (Televiv). Televiv is the capital of the Jewish state of Israel today. The Jews are not Israel, they are descendants of Cain and of Esau.
3:16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
3:17 Son of man (adam), I have made you a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at My mouth, and give them warning from Me.
3:18 When I say unto the wicked, You shalt surely die; and you givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood (blood guilt) will I require at your hand.
The wicked are the wicked and unrighteous Israelites. Yahweh is telling Ezekiel to warn the wicked of his race to turn from their wicked ways. Christ never tried to convert the Jews or the other races, only His people Israel.
3:19 Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you hast delivered your soul.
3:20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because you hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand.
3:21 Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also you hast delivered your soul.
3:22 And the hand of Yahweh was there upon me; and He said unto me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with you.
3:23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of Yahweh stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face.
3:24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, Go, shut yourself within your house.
3:25 But you, O son of man (adam), behold, they shall put bands upon you, and shall bind you with them, and you shalt not go out among them:
3:26 And I will make your tongue cleave to the roof of your mouth, that you shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.
3:27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shalt say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house.
A symbol of the siege
Ezekiel 4:1 You also, son of man (adam), take you a tile (brick), and lay it before you, and portray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:
He is drawing a picture.
4:2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about.
A seige mound is a building up of dirt against the walls to overcome the city.
4:3 Moreover take you unto you an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between you and the city: and set your face against it, and it shall be besieged, and you shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel.
4:4 Lie you also upon your left side, and lay the iniquity (punishment for iniquity) of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that you shalt lie upon it you shalt bear their iniquity.
4:5 For I have laid upon you the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt you bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.
Iniquity here is H5771 meaning perversity, guilt or punishment of iniquity.
390 years of perversity or guilt for the House of Israel. Not 390 years of punishment.
Jeroboam, who would have been king of Israel 390 years ago, set up the two golden calves in Dan and Bethel.
4:6 And when you hast accomplished them, lie again on your right side, and you shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed you each day for a year.
The House of Judah has been guilty for 40 years.
Jehoiakim king of Judah forty years ago was an evil king that rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar, did not accept Yahweh's plan for punishment, and shed much innocent blood during his reign.
4:7 Therefore you shalt set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and your arm shall be uncovered, and you shalt prophesy against it.
4:8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon you, and you shalt not turn you from one side to another, till you hast ended the days of your siege.
4:9 Take you also unto you wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make you bread thereof, according to the number of the days that you shalt lie upon your side, three hundred and ninety days shalt you eat thereof.
4:10 And your meat (food) which you shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt you eat it.
4:11 You shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt you drink.
Rationing during the seige.
4:12 And you shalt eat it as barley cakes, and you shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man (adam), in their sight.
Dried feces will be used as fuel during the seige.
4:13 And Yahweh said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles (nations), whither I will drive them.
Hosea 9:3 They shall not dwell in Yahweh's land; but Ephraim (house of Israel) shall return to Egypt (symbolic of captivity), and they shall eat unclean things in Assyria.
4:14 Then said I, Ah Yahweh GOD! behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.
4:15 Then He said unto me, Lo, I have given you cow's dung for man's (adam's) dung, and you shalt prepare your bread therewith.
4:16 Moreover He said unto me, Son of man (adam), behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
Leviticus 26:26 And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and you shall eat, and not be satisfied.
Psalm 105:16 Moreover He called for a famine upon the land: He brake the whole staff of bread.
4:17 That they may want bread and water, and be astonied (appalled) one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.
Leviticus 26:39 And they that are left of you shall pine away (perish) in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away (be consumed) with them.
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.
5:10 Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of you, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in you, and the whole remnant of you will I scatter into all the winds.
Lamentations 4:10 The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of My people.
5:11 Wherefore, as I live, saith Yahweh GOD; Surely, because you hast defiled My sanctuary (the Temple) with all your detestable things, and with all your abominations (idols), therefore will I also diminish you; neither shall Mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.
2Chronicles 36:14 Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen (nations); and polluted the house of Yahweh which He had hallowed in Jerusalem.
5:12 (Still talking about the symbol of the hair) A third part of you shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of you: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about you; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.
5:13 Thus shall Mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause My fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I Yahweh have spoken it in My zeal (ardour of anger), when I have accomplished My fury in them.
Lamentations 4:11 Yahweh hath accomplished His fury; He hath poured out His fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof.
5:14 Moreover I will make you waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about you, in the sight of all that pass by.
Leviticus 26:31 And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.
5:15 So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction (warning) and an astonishment (horror) unto the nations that are round about you, when I shall execute judgments in you in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I Yahweh have spoken it.
Deuteronomy 28:37 And you shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither Yahweh shall lead you.
1Kings 9:7 Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for My name, will I cast out of My sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:
Psalm 79:4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
Jeremiah 24:9 And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
5:16 When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:
Deuteronomy 32:23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend Mine arrows upon them.
5:17 So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave you; and pestilence and blood shall pass through you; and I will bring the sword upon you. I Yahweh have spoken it.
Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the land, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the land.
Ezekiel 6:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
6:2 Son of man (adam), set your face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them,
Mountains are a reference to the nations and leaders of Israel.
6:3 And say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of Yahweh GOD; Thus saith Yahweh GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys; Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your high places (of pagan worship).
Mountains and hills are references to territories, regions, villages, etc. of Israelites.
6:4 And your altars shall be desolate, and your images (sun pillars) shall be broken: and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.
Leviticus 26:30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and My soul shall abhor you.
The images are sun pillars, obelisks. The Washington Monument, several of these pillars from Egypt are also in our land, the steeple on a “church”, these are all pagan images and are used in idolatrous worship.
6:5 And I will lay the dead carcases of the children of Israel before their idols; and I will scatter your bones round about your (pagan) altars.
6:6 In all your dwellingplaces the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images (sun pillars) may be cut down, and your works may be abolished.
These works are things made by men, idols, carved Asherah poles, pagan altars, etc.
6:7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
6:8 Yet will I leave a remnant, that you may have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when you shall be scattered through the countries.
Jeremiah 44:28 Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand, Mine, or theirs.
6:9 And they that escape of you shall remember Me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from Me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.
Psalm 78:40 How oft did they provoke Him in the wilderness, and grieve Him in the desert!
6:10 And they shall know that I am Yahweh, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them.
The Hebrew ends verse 10 as: “...I have not said I would do this harm to them without cause.”
6:11 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Smite with your hand, and stamp with your foot, and say, Alas for all the evil abominations of the house of Israel! for they shall fall by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence.
6:12 He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that remaineth and is besieged shall die by the famine: thus will I accomplish My fury upon them.
6:13 Then shall you know that I am Yahweh, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.
Pagan shrines for idolatry and burning incense and such.
6:14 So will I stretch out My hand upon them, and make the land desolate, yea, more desolate than the wilderness toward Diblath, in all their habitations: and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
The end is come
The context is still the house of Israel
Ezekiel 7:1 Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
7:2 Also, you son of man (adam), thus saith Yahweh GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.
Amos 8:2 And He said, Amos, what seest you? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said Yahweh unto me, The end is come upon My people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.
7:3 Now is the end come upon you, and I will send Mine anger upon you, and will judge you according to your ways, and will recompense upon you all your abominations.
7:4 And Mine eye shall not spare you, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense your ways upon you, and your abominations shall be in the midst of you: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
7:5 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; An evil (calamity), an only evil (calamity), behold, is come.
7:6 An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for you; behold, it is come.
7:7 The morning (tsephiyrah- unknown word) is come unto you, O you that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.
Tsephiyrah could mean the doom, or morning, has come to you. But the meaning is unknown.
14 The great day of Yahweh is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of Yahweh: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
7:8 Now will I shortly pour out My fury upon you, and accomplish Mine anger upon you: and I will judge you according to your ways, and will recompense you for all your abominations.
7:9 And Mine eye shall not spare (look with compassion), neither will I have pity: I will recompense you according to your ways and your abominations that are in the midst of you; and you shall know that I am Yahweh that smiteth.
7:10 Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning (tsephiyrah) is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.
Tsephiyrah could be morning, but the context is the coming doom of punishment.
The rod hath blossomed. Aaron's staff budded showing that the Aaronic Priesthood were the only true priests. In the next verse, the rod of wickedness is akin to the rod of Aaron, only this rod is a rod of evil and insolence that has budded.
7:11 Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of theirs: neither shall there be wailing for them.
Jeremiah 6:7 As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before Me continually is grief and wounds.
5 For thus saith Yahweh, Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away My peace from this people, saith Yahweh, even lovingkindness and mercies.
6 Both the great and the small shall die in this land: they shall not be buried, neither shall men lament for them, nor cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them:
7:12 The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
7:13 For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they were yet alive: for the vision is touching (concerns) the whole multitude thereof, which shall not return (be revoked); neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.
The children of Israel sold themselves in sin. They sold themselves to the Devil
7:14 They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle: for My wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
7:15 The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him. (Deut 32:25)
7:16 But they that escape of them shall escape (be fugitives), and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.
7:17 All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water.
7:18 They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
Isaiah 3:24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
Amos 8:10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
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.
7:20 As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty: but they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things therein: therefore have I set it far from them.
Septuagint: 20 As for their choice ornaments, they employed them for pride, and they made of them images of their abominations: therefore have I made them uncleanness to them.
Jeremiah 7:30 For the children of Judah have done evil in My sight, saith Yahweh: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to pollute it.
7:21 And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth (land) for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
7:22 My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute My secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.
Our unpolluted and obedient bodies are His secret place (we are Jerusalem). America and our people was a white Christian nation. Look what the other races have done to it and our posterity.
7:23 Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.
7:24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen (nations), and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.
All these people would not stop with their idol worship, so punishment was coming. Yahweh has had enough!
7:25 Destruction (shuddering, anguish) cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
7:26 Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.
We shall abandon our ways.
The “churches” teach that the law was “done away with” and the OT was then, old news.
7:27 The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
This is a different prophecy than chapters 1-7
Ezekiel is shown how wicked Jerusalem has become.
Ezekiel 8:1 (Ezekiel speaking) And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of Yahweh GOD fell there upon me.
The power (hand) of Yahweh fell upon Yechezqe'l (Ezekiel) while he was before the people in his house.
8:2 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of His loins even downward, fire; and from His loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness (shining), as the colour of amber.
8:3 And He put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth (land) and the heaven (sky), and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat (location) of the image (statue) of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
The phrase 'image of jealousy'. Jealousy H7068 qinah, jealousy or envy.
The phrase 'provoketh to jealousy'. Jealousy H7065(9) qana(h), to make or provoke jealousy, to procure or acquire. As a noun it means a possessor.
Septuagint: “...where was the pillar of the Purchaser.”
In chapter 7 (and today), the children of Israel sold themselves to idols, little g gods, evil, the Devil, credit cards, usury, the Jew banker.
Geneva: “...where remained the idol of indignation, which provoked indignation.”
The image of jealousy would be idols, race mixing, usury and interracial commerce. All the things the Jews teach us.
8:4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
8:5 Then said He unto me, Son of man (adam), lift up your eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
The statue of jealous anger.
8:6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man (adam), seest you what they do? even the great abominations (idolatry) that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from My sanctuary? but turn you yet again, and you shalt see greater abominations.
8:7 And He brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.
8:8 Then said He unto me, Son of man (adam), dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.
8:9 And He said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
8:10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed (carved) upon the wall round about.
Leviticus 5:2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase of an unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.
11:23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
11:24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even.
Not only were the children of Israel worshiping idols in the temple, they were sacrificing the unclean animals in there as well.
8:11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.
Only references to 70 men are:
Numbers 11:16 And Yahweh said unto Moses, Gather unto Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with you.
24 And Moses went out, and told the people the words of Yahweh, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle.
2Kings 10:1 And Ahab had seventy sons in Samaria. And Jehu wrote letters, and sent to Samaria, unto the rulers of Jezreel, to the elders, and to them that brought up Ahab's children, saying, ... 6 Then he (Jehu) wrote a letter the second time to them, saying, If you be mine, and if you will hearken unto my voice, take you the heads of the men your master's sons, and come to me to Jezreel by to morrow this time. Now the king's sons, being seventy persons, were with the great men of the city, which brought them up.
8:12 Then said He unto me, Son of man (adam), hast you seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark (in secret), every man in the chambers of his imagery (carved figures)? for they say, Yahweh seeth us not; Yahweh hath forsaken the earth (land).
8:13 He said also unto me, Turn you yet again, and you shalt see greater abominations that they do.
8:14 Then He brought me to the door of the gate of Yahweh's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
Ancient Summerian and Akkadian inscriptions mention Tammuz.
Tammuz was The Shepherd's god. Enkimdu the Farmer's god. Said to be reminiscence to Cain and Abel. The Babylonian sun god.
8:15 Then said He unto me, Hast you seen this, O son of man (adam)? turn you yet again, and you shalt see greater abominations than these.
8:16 And He brought me into the inner court of Yahweh's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of Yahweh, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of Yahweh, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
Worshiping the ancient Summerian/Babylonian religion. Today its Islamism. Bowing to the east.
8:17 Then He said unto me, Hast you seen this, O son of man (adam)? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke Me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
Septuagint: 17 And He said to me, Son of man (adam), you hast seen this. Is it a little thing to the house of Judah to practice the iniquities which they have practiced here? for they have filled the land with iniquity: and, behold, these are as scorners. (not likely scorners)
Geneva: “...they have cast out stink before their noses.
8:18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: Mine eye shall not spare (look with compassion), neither will I have pity: and though they cry in Mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
The phrase 'they put the branch to their nose'.
Likely a reference to pagan rituals, incense, hallucinogenics.
Sheldon Emery states it was to 'hide their doings (incense)'.
A word study reveals more.
They...PUT H7971- put, send away, cast out, conduct,
the BRANCH H2156- twig, pruned (2168) 5568- to be erect, stand up, tremble
to their NOSE H639- nose or nostril: (H599)(from the rapid breathing in passion): - anger(-y),
+ before, countenance, face, + forbearing, forehead, + [long-] suffering, worthy, wrath.
Some other possibilities include:
“They put the branch (kindling) to My wrath” meaning stoked the fire.
The Branch (Christ):
As a prophetic metaphor, they WILL put Christ to their anger (suffering). This is fulfilled as they shout "Crucify him!" This is highly plausible because they are Judaeans of the house of Judah.
One goes so far as to the branch being the male organ, as to be erect, is in the definition (H5568). This is not hard to consider, knowing that pagan worship required sex, race mixing and idol worship.
Note: H2156 (branch) is used only 4 other times. Each time has to do with the children of Israel.
Numbers 13:23 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.
Isaiah 17:10 Because you hast forgotten the God of your salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of your strength, therefore shalt you plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:
Ezekiel 15:2 Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?
Nahum 2:2 For Yahweh hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their vine branches.
The Branch, referring directly to Christ is found 5 times.
Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch (H5342) shall grow out of his roots:
Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch (H6780), and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
Jeremiah 33:15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch (H6780) of righteousness to grow up unto David; and He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
Zechariah 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you, and your fellows that sit before you: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth My servant the BRANCH (H6780).
Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh Yahweh of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH (6780); and He shall grow up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of Yahweh:
The other 32 times branch is used, it is likely 12 are references to Christ. (Job 15:32, 29:19, Ps 80:15, Prov 11:28, Is 4:2, 60:21, Ez 15:2, 17:3,22, Dan 11:7, Matt 24:32, and Mark 13:28)
Slaughter of idolaters
Ezekiel 9:1 He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.
(The watchman on the wall crying this out) “Those that visit punishment upon the city approach, every man with a weapon of destrucion in his hand.”
9:2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen (bronze) altar.
Slaughter is mappats. A shattering type of weapon.
9:3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon He was, to the threshold of the house. And He called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side;
9:4 And Yahweh said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
These are the righteous men that are not involved in the society, those who reject sin and abomination. There preservation is assured here.
Revelation 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the land, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the ground, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father's name written in their foreheads.
9:5 And to the others (the ones with the weapons) He said in mine hearing, Go you after him through the city, and smite (to kill): let not your eye spare, neither have you pity:
9:6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
These were the men bowing down towards the sun.
9:7 And He said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go you forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city. (Lev 21:11; Num 9:6-7,10, 19:11,13-14,16)
9:8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Yahweh GOD! wilt You destroy all the residue of Israel in Your pouring out of Your fury upon Jerusalem?
9:9 Then said He unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, Yahweh hath forsaken the earth (land), and Yahweh seeth not.
9:10 And as for Me also, Mine eye shall not spare (look with compassion), neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.
9:11 And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as you hast commanded me.
This vision is a parable of what was to come upon Jerusalem at the hands of the Chaldeans (Babylonians). They didn't know this was coming. Just like today, the fall of Mystery Babylon is coming. Most everybody doesn't even know what's coming.
The glory of Yahweh
Continuing with the vision
Ezekiel 10:1 Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne.
Exodus 24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in His clearness.
Revelation 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in the sky, and one sat on the throne.
10:2 And He spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels (a whirling thing H1534), even under the cherub, and fill your hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.
The Mercy Seat is between the cherubims, hence coals of fire.
Revelation 8:5 And the messenger took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the land: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
10:3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house (temple), when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.
10:4 Then the glory of Yahweh went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of Yahweh's glory.
10:5 And the sound of the cherubims' wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God (El Shadday) when He speaketh.
10:6 And it came to pass, that when He had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels (whirling thing H1534), from between the cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels (H212 wheels of the ten bases beneath the lavers in Solomon's temple, or chariot wheel, or whatever vision Ezekiel is having).
10:7 And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out.
10:8 And there appeared in the cherubims the form of a man's (adam) hand under their wings.
10:9 And when I looked, behold the four wheels by the cherubims, one wheel (H212) by one cherub, and another wheel (H212) by another cherub: and the appearance of the wheels (H212) was as the colour of a beryl stone (a gem).
10:10 And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel (H212).
Ezekiel is repeating the vision he had in chapter 1.
10:11 When they went, they went upon their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went.
10:12 And their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels (H212), were full of eyes round about, even the wheels (H212) that they four had.
Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Yahweh God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
10:13 As for the wheels (H212), it was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel (whirling thing H1534).
The Hebrew reads: 13 The wheels were called in my hearing, The Wheelwork.
10:14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man (adam), and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle. (Rev 4:7)
10:15 And the cherubims were lifted up (ascended). This is the living creature that I saw by the river of Chebar.
10:16 And when the cherubims went, the wheels (H212) went by them: and when the cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth (ground), the same wheels (H212) also turned not from beside them.
10:17 When they stood, these stood; and when they were lifted up (ascended), these lifted up (ascended) themselves also: for the spirit of the living creature was in them.
10:18 Then the glory of Yahweh departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.
10:19 And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth (ground) in my sight: when they went out, the wheels (H212) also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of Yahweh's house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.
10:20 This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubims.
10:21 Every one had four faces apiece, and every one four wings; and the likeness of the hands of a man (adam) was under their wings.
10:22 And the likeness of their faces was the same faces which I saw by the river of Chebar, their appearances and themselves: they went every one straight forward.
Yahweh was leaving the temple.
Ungodly rulers punished
Ezekiel 11:1 Moreover the spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto the east gate of Yahweh's house, which looketh eastward: and behold at the door of the gate five and twenty men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes (leaders) of the people.
11:2 Then said He (Yahweh) unto me, Son of man (adam), these are the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city:
11:3 Which say, It is not near; let us build houses: this city is the caldron, and we be the flesh.
2Peter 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.
11:4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O son of man (adam).
11:5 And the Spirit of Yahweh fell upon me, and said unto me, Speak; Thus saith Yahweh; Thus have you said, O house of Israel: for I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them.
11:6 Ye have multiplied your slain in this city, and you have filled the streets thereof with the slain.
11:7 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Your slain whom you have laid in the midst of it, they are the flesh, and this city is the caldron: but I will bring you forth out of the midst of it.
11:8 Ye have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you, saith Yahweh GOD.
11:9 And I will bring you out of the midst thereof, and deliver you into the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you.
11:10 Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of Israel; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
11:11 This city shall not be your caldron, neither shall you be the flesh in the midst thereof; but I will judge you in the border of Israel:
11:12 And you shall know that I am Yahweh: for you have not walked in My statutes, neither executed My judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen (nations) that are round about you.
3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein you dwelt, shall you not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall you not do: neither shall you walk in their ordinances.
24 Defile not you yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
11:13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Yahweh GOD! wilt You make a full end of the remnant of Israel?
11:14 Again the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
11:15 Son of man (adam), your brethren, even your brethren, the men of your kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from Yahweh: unto us is this land given in possession.
Many of those in Jerusalem are not Israel, even though they are claiming to be.
When the house of Israel was taken in the Assyrian captivity, Canaanite and Edomite Jews (the they and us in verse 15) were placed in the land and claim it is theirs, even though Yahweh gave it to the children of Israel.
The words in italics are added by the translators. It changes the whole meaning, observe the correct verse from the Hebrew.
15 Son of Adam, your brethren, your brethren, the men of your kindred, and all the house of Israel entirely, those (Israelites) to whom the inhabitants (Jews) of Jerusalem have said, You are far from Yahweh, to us (Jews) is this land given into possession.
11:16 Therefore say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen (nations), and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.
Psalm 90:1 A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Yahweh, You hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
Psalm 91:9 For You, O Yahweh, art my hope: you, my soul, hast made the Most High your refuge.
Isaiah 8:14 And He shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
11:17 Therefore say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.
They are in Palestine now, verse 17 is not saying that those scattered will be brought back to Palestine. The house of Israel went on to settle Europe. Only a remnant of the house of Judah returned and after 70 AD Israel never returned to Palestine. The Canaanite and Edomite Jews nest there now.
The land of Israel is the white nations of the world, and the assembly or regathering of the children of Israel was here in America. Wherever the children of Israel dwell is called the land of Israel.
11:18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.
11:19 And I will give them one heart (or mind), and I will put a new spirit (or thought, way of thinking) within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
Jeremiah 32:39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear Me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:
11:20 That they may walk in My statutes, and keep Mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
Psalm 105:45 That they might observe His statutes, and keep His laws. Praise You Yahweh.
The last time this happened was at the beginning of America.
11:21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith Yahweh GOD.
11:22 Then did the cherubims lift up their wings, and the wheels (H212) beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.
11:23 And the glory of Yahweh went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon the mountain which is on the east side of the city.
11:24 Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me.
11:25 Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that Yahweh had shewed me.
Ezekiel 12:1 The word of Yahweh also came unto me, saying,
12:2 Son of man (adam), you dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.
Isaiah 6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
6:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
Jeremiah 5:21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
Mark 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
12:3 Therefore, you son of man (adam), prepare you stuff for removing (exile, captivity), and remove by day in their sight; and you shalt remove from your place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious house.
Stuff is implements, utensils, vessels, etc.
12:4 Then shalt you bring forth your stuff (implements) by day in their sight, as stuff for removing (exile): and you shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity.
12:5 Dig you through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby.
12:6 In their sight shalt you bear it upon your shoulders, and carry it forth in the twilight (thick darkness): you shalt cover your face, that you see not the ground: for I have set you for a sign unto the house of Israel.
12:7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight.
Moved stones from the wall of Jerusalem for a little doorway.
12:8 And in the morning came the word of Yahweh unto me, saying,
12:9 Son of man (adam), hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto you, What doest you?
12:10 Say you unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; This burden (prophetic utterance) concerneth the prince in Jerusalem (Zedekiah), and all the house of Israel that are among them. (2Ki 24:17)
12:11 Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.
12:12 And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes.
In verses 10 and 12, prince is a reference to the leaders of chapter 11. The ungodly rulers.
Jeremiah 39:4 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them (Babylonians), and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king's garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain.
12:13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in My snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there. (Jer 52:9)
Zedekiah tried to escape, he was caught, his sons slain, and his eyes gouged out.
12:14 And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands (army); and I will draw out the sword after them. (2 Ki 25:4)
12:15 And they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.
12:16 But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among the heathen (nations) whither they come; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
12:17 Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
12:18 Son of man (adam), eat your bread with quaking, and drink your water with trembling and with carefulness;
12:19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith Yahweh GOD of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness (anxious care, scarcity), and drink their water with astonishment (horror), that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.
12:20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
12:21 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
12:22 Son of man (adam), what is that proverb that you have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth (vanishes)?
12:23 Tell them therefore, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.
Joel 2:1 Blow you the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of Yahweh cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
Zephaniah 1:14 The great day of Yahweh is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of Yahweh: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
12:24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.
Lamentations 2:14 Your prophets have seen vain and foolish things for you: and they have not discovered your iniquity, to turn away your captivity; but have seen for you false burdens and causes of banishment.
12:25 For I am Yahweh: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith Yahweh GOD.
12:26 Again the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
12:27 Son of man (adam), behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times that are far off.
12:28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; There shall none of My words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith Yahweh GOD.
This chapter speaks directly to the “church”. Today's preachers and the congregation.
Ezekiel 13:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
13:2 Son of man (adam), prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say you unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts (or minds), Hear you the word of Yahweh;
13:3 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
13:4 O Israel, your prophets are like the foxes (jackals) in the deserts (ruins).
13:5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of Yahweh. (Psa 106:23,30)
Not being protective shepherds, letting the enemy in.
The Septuagint: 5 They have not continued steadfast, and they have gathered flocks against the house of Israel, they that say,
13:6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, Yahweh saith: and Yahweh hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word (their prophecy).
13:7 Have you not seen a vain vision, and have you not spoken a lying divination, whereas you say, Yahweh saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
13:8 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith Yahweh GOD.
13:9 And Mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of My people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and you shall know that I am Yahweh GOD.
13:10 Because, even because they (false prophets, preachers) have seduced My people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:
Untempered is H8602 (taphel) From an unused root meaning to smear; plaster (as gummy) or slime; (figuratively) frivolity: - foolish things, unsavoury, untempered.
Untempered a. Not tempered; not duly mixed for use; not durable or strong.
DULY, adv. [from due.] DUE, a. Du. [L., Gr., to bind. It has no connection with owe.]
Properly; fitly; in a suitable or becoming manner; as, let the subject be duly considered.
Septuagint: 10 Because they (false prophets, preachers) have caused My people to err, saying, Peace; and there is no peace; and one builds a wall, and they plaster it, --it shall fall.
Geneva: 10 And therefore, because they have deceived My people, saying, Peace, & there was no peace: and one built up a wall, and behold, the others daubed it with untempered mortar,
Jeremiah 6:14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
13:11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and you, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
13:12 Lo, when the wall (of lies) is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing (plastering, coating) wherewith you have daubed (plastered, coated) it?
13:13 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in My fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in Mine anger, and great hailstones in My fury to consume it.
13:14 So will I break down the wall (of lies) that you have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and you shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
13:15 Thus will I accomplish My wrath upon the wall (of lies, false teachings), and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall (of lies) is no more, neither they that daubed it;
13:16 To wit, (Even) the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith Yahweh GOD.
Septuagint: Jeremiah 6:14 And they healed the breach of My people imperfectly, making light of it, and saying, Peace, peace; and where is peace?
13:17 Likewise, you son of man (adam), set your face against the daughters of your people (Jerusalem), which prophesy out of their own heart (or mind); and prophesy you against them,
13:18 And say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows (bands, false phylacteries) to all armholes, and make kerchiefs (long veils) upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will you hunt the souls of My people, and will you save the souls alive that come unto you?
The Septuagint: 18 And you shalt say, Thus saith Yahweh, Woe to the women that sew pillows under every elbow, and make kerchiefs on the head of every stature to pervert souls! The souls of My people are perverted, and they have saved souls alive.
Geneva: “...and make veils upon the head of every one that standeth up, to hunt souls: will you hunt you souls of My people, and will you give life to the souls that come unto you?”
The stature would be those false preachers (leaders) in elevated positions. Yahweh is stating that their false doctrine is making His people a prey for them, instead of giving life (truth) they give them the tools (false doctrine) to dig their own graves.
13:19 And will you pollute Me among My people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save (preserve) the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to My people that hear your lies?
13:20 Wherefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows (wrist bands), wherewith you there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that you hunt to make them fly (scatter).
13:21 Your kerchiefs (long veils) also will I tear, and deliver My people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
The pillows (bands upon all hand joints) and kerchiefs (veils) are implements (utensils,vessels) of pagan worship.
Bands (pillows) is H3704 covered amulets, false phylacteries, used by false prophetesses in Israel to support their demonic fortune-telling schemes.
13:22 Because with lies you have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:
Universalism. Promising the other races that they can share in the promises and covenants Yahweh gave to only His people, the Adamic race, the Israelites of Jacob, who are the Anglo-Saxon white nations of the world today. This is us, our heritage, our inheritance.
Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto Me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
13:23 Therefore you shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver My people out of your (false prophets) hand: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
Micah 3:6 Therefore night shall be unto you, that you shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that you shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.
The untempered mortar is the foolish, false doctrine of the false prophets and shepherds.
When they build their doctrines, the foundation is a lie, it's false, foolish, vain, not from Yahweh.
The daubers are the people that believe and follow these ungodly prophets and preachers, adding foolish plaster to the foundation that the false preachers built. Supporting it, spreading it. Practicing it. Living it.
The false prophets, teachers and preachers of Christ's time were the Edomite Jew Pharisees and Sadducees. They preached their false doctrine of Judaism, which is the 'traditions of men', today it's called the Talmud. The Jews are liars and imposters and over 2500 years ago began building their 'false doctrine' by distorting and adding to the laws of Moses. With repetition and deceitfulness, they have fooled the world into believing that they (the Jews) are Israel. And most every “church” today keeps daubing this 'untempered mortar' to this false doctrine.
Christ is NOT a Jew and those teaching it, and those accepting it will be punished, as Yahweh promises. Just reread chapter 13, with understanding. Please.
Call to turn from idols
Ezekiel 14:1 Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me.
14:2 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
14:3 Son of man (adam), these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock (punishment, cause to fall) of their iniquity before their face: should I (Yahweh) be enquired of at all by them (false prophets, leaders, preachers)?
The 'certain of the elders', 'these men were' were the same men bowing down on the porch of the temple praying to the sun in the east. Today they (preachers, pew warmers) worship Jews.
Yahweh does not hear the prayer of a sinner.
14:4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart (mind), and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet (Ezekiel); I Yahweh will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;
The Septuagint ends as: “...I Yahweh will answer him according to the things in which his mind is entangled, 5 that I should turn aside the house of Israel, according to their hearts that are estranged from Me in their thoughts.
14:5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from Me through their idols.
14:6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.
Our “churches” today are full of abominations. They accept mixed race marriages, homosexuals, they support the “church” doctrine and not scripture, they worship a Jewish Jesus. They eat swine's flesh.
14:7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger (sojourning kinsmen) that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from Me, and setteth up his idols in his heart (mind), and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning Me; I Yahweh will answer him by Myself:
14:8 And I will set My face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of My people; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
The Septuagint has: “...and will make him desolate and ruined,...”
14:9 And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I Yahweh have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out My hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of My people Israel.
Septuagint reads: 9 And if a prophet should cause to err and should speak, I Yahweh have caused that prophet to err, and will stretch out My hand upon him, and will utterly destroy him from the midst of My people Israel.
14:10 And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;
Septuagint: 10 And they shall bear their iniquity according to the trespass of him that asks; and it shall be in like manner to the prophet according to the trespass:
14:11 That the house of Israel may go no more astray from Me, neither be polluted (defiled) any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be My people, and I may be their God, saith Yahweh GOD.
A true prophet would not give the counsel of Yahweh to a sinful man. They are to be put away.
Repentance must be first before we appear before Yahweh.
14:12 The word of Yahweh came again to me, saying,
14:13 Son of man (adam), when the land (the people) sinneth against Me by trespassing grievously (unfaithfuly), then will I stretch out Mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man (adam) and beast from it:
14:14 Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith Yahweh GOD.
Even the most pious men can only save their own souls.
Daniel means judge of Yahweh. This may not be the Daniel of Ezekiel's time but an earlier Daniel of antiquity, possibly Dan, son of Jacob.
14:15 If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts:
14:16 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith Yahweh GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate.
Leviticus 26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your high ways shall be desolate.
14:17 Or if I bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man (adam) and beast from it:
Leviticus 26:25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of My covenant: and when you are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
14:18 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith Yahweh GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves.
14:19 Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out My fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man (adam) and beast:
14:20 Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith Yahweh GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.
14:21 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; How much more when I send My four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man (adam) and beast?
Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
14:22 Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and you shall see their way and their doings: and you shall be comforted concerning the evil (calamity) that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.
14:23 And they shall comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings: and you shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith Yahweh GOD.
When the evil ones are judged, that should comfort us.
Parable of the vine
Jeremiah 2:21 Yet I had planted thee a noble vine (H8321 choice species of vine, choice grapes), wholly a right seed: how then art you turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto Me?
Ezekiel 15:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
15:2 Son of man (adam), What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?
The Septuagint: 2 And you, son of man--of all the wood, of the branches that are among the trees of the forest, what shall be made of the wood of the vine?
The vine is H1612 gephen which is not a cultured grape vine but a useless wild variety.
Branch is H2156 zemorah, used in pagan worship rights. See Ezekiel 8:18.
The Hebrew: 2 Son of Adam, how is the wood of the wild vine more than the wood of a branch which is among the trees of the forest.
15:3 Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take a pin (peg) of it to hang any vessel thereon?
Septuagint: 3 Will they take wood of it to make it fit for work? will they take of it a peg to hang any vessel upon it?
15:4 Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet (useful) for any work?
John 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.
15:5 Behold, when it was whole, it was meet (useful) for no work: how much less shall it be meet (useful) yet for any work, when the fire hath devoured it, and it is burned?
15:6 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; As the vine tree (H1612 wood of the wild vine) among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
Yahweh is comparing the inhabitants of Jerusalem to this useless wood. The same wood used in pagan worship rights.
15:7 And I will set My face against them; they shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and you shall know that I am Yahweh, when I set My face against them.
Leviticus 17:10 And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set My face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
Isaiah 24:18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.
15:8 And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed a trespass (acted unfaithfully), saith Yahweh GOD.
Which trespass has been committed making the land (people) desolate?
21 Yet I had planted you a noble vine (H8321), wholly a right seed: how then art you turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine (H1612) unto Me?
22 For though you wash you with nitre, and take you much soap, yet your iniquity is marked before Me, saith Yahweh GOD.
You can't wash profane genetics. The other races are broken cisterns that hold not water (Spirit). When we race mix, we deny Yahweh children (a wholly right seed).
Judgment upon Israel
Strong parallel to Jeremiah chapter 2. Much of the sin in Jerusalem is due to the people allowing themselves to be infiltrated by the Hittites and Canaanites.
In Deuteronomy 7 and 12 are the warnings that Israel received that they were to destroy the peoples of the Canaanites and their idols and not to be ensnared by them.
Exodus 23:33, they shall not dwell in your land lest they make you sin against Me.
The same thing happened again here in America.
Judgment upon Israel for race mixing
Ezekiel 16:1 Again the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
16:2 Son of man (adam), cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,
16:3 And say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD unto Jerusalem; Your birth and your nativity is of the land of Canaan; your father was an Amorite, and your mother an Hittite. (Eze 16:45)
Yahweh is calling them Canaanites and Edomites because of their practices.
16:4 And as for your (speaking of Israel's) nativity, in the day you wast born your navel (umbilical cord) was not cut, neither wast you washed in water to supple (cleanse) you; you wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.
16:5 None eye pitied you, to do any of these unto you, to have compassion upon you; but you wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of your person, in the day that you wast born.
Signifying the wicked bringing forth (giving birth to) iniquity.
16:6 And when I passed by you, and saw you polluted (kicking out- like an infant) in your own blood, I said unto you when you wast in your blood, Live; yea, I said unto you when you wast in your blood, Live.
16:7 I have caused you to multiply as the bud of the field, and you hast increased and waxen great, and you art come to excellent ornaments: your breasts are fashioned (firm), and your hair is grown, whereas you wast naked and bare.
16:8 Now when I passed by you, and looked upon you, behold, your time was the time of love; and I spread My skirt over you (formal act of espousal), and covered your nakedness: yea, I sware unto you, and entered into a covenant with you, saith Yahweh GOD, and you becamest Mine.
Yahweh was the husband of Israel.
16:9 Then washed I you with water; yea, I throughly washed away your blood from you, and I anointed you with oil.
16:10 I clothed you also with broidered work, and shod you with badgers' (tachash- unknown) skin, and I girded you about with fine linen, and I covered you with silk (meshiy- unknown).
16:11 I decked you also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon your hands, and a chain on your neck.
16:12 And I put a jewel on your forehead, and earrings in your ears, and a beautiful crown upon your head.
16:13 Thus wast you decked with gold and silver; and your raiment was of fine linen, and silk (meshiy- unknown), and broidered work; you didst eat fine flour (flour reserved for sacrifice), and honey, and oil (olive oil): and you wast exceeding beautiful, and you didst prosper into a kingdom.
16:14 And your renown went forth among the heathen (nations) for your beauty: for it was perfect through My comeliness, which I had put upon you, saith Yahweh GOD.
The pure blood of the white race (Adamic man).
Lamentations 2:15 All that pass by clap their hands at you; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole land?
16:15 But you didst trust in your own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of your renown, and pouredst out your fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.
16:16 And of your garments you didst take, and deckedst your high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.
This is all describing race mixing.
Hosea 2:8 For she did not know that I gave her grain, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal (the Lord).
16:17 You hast also taken your fair jewels of My gold and of My silver, which I had given you, and madest to yourself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,
They made phallic symbols and idols with male sex organs.
16:18 And tookest your broidered garments, and coveredst them (the idols): and you hast set Mine oil and Mine incense before them.
16:19 My meat (food) also which I gave you, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed you, you hast even set it before them (the idols) for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith Yahweh GOD.
Hosea 2:8 For she did not know that I gave her grain, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
16:20 Moreover you hast taken your sons and your daughters, whom you hast borne unto Me, and these hast you sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of your whoredoms a small matter,
They were sacrificing their children and eating them. This still goes on today.
16:21 That you hast slain My children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them? (Deut 18:10; 2Ki 16:3,17:17,31)
Race mixing, abortion, pizza gate, sending them off to fight wars that only support causes of the Jews.
Septuagint: 21 and didst slay your children, and gavest them up in offering them to them for an expiation.
Pass through the fire is a reference to sacrificing children to Molech (Baal, the Lord, Satan)
16:22 And in all your abominations and your whoredoms you hast not remembered the days of your youth, when you wast naked and bare, and wast polluted (kicking as an infant) in your blood.
Septuagint: 22 This is beyond all your fornication, and you didst not remember your infancy, when you wast naked and bare, and didst live though defiled in your blood.
Naked (H6191): to be or make bare (through the idea perhaps of smoothness) to be cunning (usually in a bad sense): - X very, beware, take crafty [counsel], be prudent, deal subtilly.
Bare (H6172): figuratively (disgrace, blemish): - nakedness, shame, unclean (-ness).
16:23 And it came to pass after all your wickedness, (woe, woe unto you! saith Yahweh GOD;)
16:24 That you hast also built unto you an eminent place (a place for a raised pagan altar), and hast made you an high place (shrine) in every street (plaza).
Septuagint: 24 that you didst build thyself a house of fornication, and didst make thyself a public place in every street;
16:25 You hast built your high place (shrine) at every head of the way (street entrance), and hast made your beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened your feet (spread your legs) to every one that passed by, and multiplied your whoredoms.
Septuagint: 25 and on the head of every way you didst set up your fornications, and didst defile your beauty, and didst open your feet to every passer by, and didst multiply your fornication.
16:26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians your neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased your whoredoms, to provoke Me to anger.
Geneva has 'great of flesh' as: “...which have great members...”.
Large of phallus.
16:27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out My hand over you, and have diminished your ordinary food, and delivered you unto the will of them that hate you, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of your lewd way.
The word food is italicized, meaning it was added.
The phrase 'ordinary food' is a reference to abolishing your statutes and ordinances. When a nation is conquered it's the law of the conqueror that prevails. It can also mean their prescribed portion, supply.
Just like today, we don't follow scriptural statutes and ordinances, we follow what the Jews are telling us to do, be and have.
16:28 You hast played the whore also with the Assyrians (Asshur), because you wast unsatiable; yea, you hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.
16:29 You hast moreover multiplied your fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea (Kasdiymah); and yet you wast not satisfied herewith.
16:30 How weak is your heart, saith Yahweh GOD, seeing you doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;
16:31 In that you buildest your eminent place (raised mound of pagan worship) in the head of every way, and makest your high place (shrine) in every street (plaza); and hast not been as an harlot, in that you scornest hire;
They weren't selling it, they were giving it away.
16:32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers (foreigners) instead of her husband!
Strangers is H2114 zur, figurative of foreign gods. Instead of being faithful to Yahweh they were cheating on Him with foreign gods.
16:33 They give gifts to all whores: but you givest your gifts to all your lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto you on every side for your whoredom.
Hosea 8:9 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim (house of Israel) hath hired lovers.
16:34 And the contrary is in you from other women in your whoredoms, whereas none followeth you to commit whoredoms: and in that you givest a reward, and no reward is given unto you, therefore you art contrary.
Foreign aid, trading privileges, open borders, rule by the stranger (Obama, Jews in our offices).
A whore gets paid. Israel was giving it.
16:35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of Yahweh:
16:36 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because your filthiness (brazenness) was poured out, and your nakedness discovered through your whoredoms with your lovers, and with all the idols of your abominations, and by the blood of your children, which you didst give unto them;
16:37 Behold, therefore I will gather all your lovers, with whom you hast taken pleasure, and all them that you hast loved, with all them that you hast hated; I will even gather them round about against you, and will discover your nakedness (shame) unto them, that they may see all your nakedness (shame).
How can we not be devoured by the Mexicans, Indians, Asians, Arabs and blacks who WE elevated and allowed into OUR lands.
22 And if you say in your heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of your iniquity are your skirts discovered, and your heels made bare.
26 Therefore will I discover your skirts upon your face, that your shame may appear.
Lamentations 1:8 Jerusalem hath grievously sinned; therefore she is removed: all that honoured her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: yea, she sigheth, and turneth backward.
16:38 And I will judge you, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give you blood in fury and jealousy.
Leviticus 20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
16:39 And I will also give you into their hand, and they shall throw down your eminent place (pagan idol mound), and shall break down your high places (shrines): they shall strip you also of your clothes, and shall take your fair jewels, and leave you naked and bare.
This is happening to us here in America and the other white nations today.
16:40 They shall also bring up a company against you, and they shall stone you with stones, and thrust you through with their swords.
16:41 And they shall burn your houses with fire, and execute judgments upon you in the sight of many women: and I will cause you to cease from playing the harlot, and you also shalt give no hire any more.
16:42 So will I make My fury toward you to rest (be fulfilled), and My jealousy shall depart from you, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.
16:43 Because you hast not remembered the days of your youth, but hast fretted (provoked) Me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense your way upon your head, saith Yahweh GOD: and you shalt not commit this lewdness above all your abominations.
16:44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against you, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.
16:45 You art your mother's daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and you art the sister of your sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite.
16:46 And your elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at your left hand: and your younger sister, that dwelleth at your right hand, is Sodom and her daughters.
Jerusalem is the subject. Israel is Samaria. Judah is described as Sodom. This is a parable of 3 sisters.
16:47 Yet hast you (Jerusalem) not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, you wast corrupted more than they in all your ways.
16:48 As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, Sodom (Judah) your sister hath not done, she nor her daughters (46 fenced cities), as you hast done, you (Jerusalem) and your daughters.
16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom (Judah), pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness (ease of silence) was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Ease of silence because the wrath of Yahweh was silent for a while. They forgot what He could do.
16:50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before Me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
Septuagint: 50 And they boasted, and wrought iniquities before Me: so I cut them off as I saw fit.
16:51 Neither hath Samaria (Israel) committed half of your sins; but you (Jerusalem) hast multiplied your abominations more than they, and hast justified your sisters in all your abominations which you hast done.
The sins of Jerusalem made the house of Israel's sins look minor.
16:52 Thou also (Jerusalem), which hast judged your sisters, bear your own shame for your sins that you hast committed more abominable than they (Israel and Judah): they are more righteous than you: yea, be you confounded also, and bear your shame, in that you hast justified your sisters.
16:53 When I shall bring again (restore) their captivity (former state of prosperity, fortune), the captivity (fortune) of Sodom (Judah) and her daughters (cities of Judah), and the captivity (fortune) of Samaria (Israel) and her daughters (cities of the northern house of Israel), then will I bring again the captivity (fortune) of your captives in the midst of them:
Septuagint ends as: “and I will turn your captivity in the midst of them:”
Isaiah 1:9 Except Yahweh of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
Jeremiah 20:16 And let that man be as the cities which Yahweh overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;
16:54 That you mayest bear your own shame (ignominy), and mayest be confounded (disgraced) in all that you hast done, in that you art a comfort unto them.
Your behavior was a support for their sins.
16:55 When your sisters, Sodom (Judah) and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria (Israel) and her daughters shall return to their former estate (as at the beginning), then you (Jerusalem) and your daughters shall return to your former estate (as at the beginning).
16:56 For your sister Sodom (Judah) was not mentioned by your mouth in the day of your pride,
16:57 Before your wickedness was discovered, as at the time of your reproach of the daughters of Syria (Aram), and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise you round about.
16:58 You hast borne your lewdness and your abominations, saith Yahweh.
16:59 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will even deal with you as you hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.
Deuteronomy 29:12 That you shouldest enter into covenant with Yahweh your God, and into His oath, which Yahweh your God maketh with you this day:
16:60 Nevertheless I will remember My covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish unto you an everlasting covenant.
Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Notice it does not say “with the “church” or with the other races”. And never does.
16:61 Then you shalt remember your ways, and be ashamed, when you shalt receive (take possession of) your sisters, your elder and your younger: and I will give them unto you for daughters, but not by your covenant.
Isaiah 54:1 Sing, O barren, you that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith Yahweh.
Isaiah 60:4 Lift up your eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to you: your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
Speaking of reconciliation and regathering.
16:62 And I will establish My covenant with you; and you shalt know that I am Yahweh:
16:63 That you mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open your mouth any more because of your shame, when I am pacified toward you for all that you hast done, saith Yahweh GOD.
The eagles and the cedar
Ezekiel 17:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
17:2 Son of man (adam), put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the house of Israel;
17:3 And say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; A great eagle with great wings, longwinged, full of feathers, which had divers colours, came unto Lebanon, and took the highest branch of the cedar:
This great eagle is Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. He carried king Jehoiachin of Judah off into captivity in Babylon, and set his brother Zedekiah in his place, in Jerusalem.
The cedar is H730 and is a figurative for Israel.
2Kings 24:12 And Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes, and his officers: and the king of Babylon took him in the eighth year of his reign.
17:4 He cropped off the top of his young twigs, and carried it into a land of traffick; he set it in a city of merchants.
The people taken to Babylon were allowed to flourish, as Yahweh promised, if they acknowledged and accepted their punishment, which was “for their good”, they would be protected (not “saved”, but preserved).
17:5 He took also of the seed of the land (people), and planted it in a fruitful field; he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree.
17:6 And it grew, and became a spreading vine of low stature, whose branches turned toward him, and the roots thereof were under him: so it became a vine, and brought forth branches, and shot forth sprigs.
When the children of Israel were in captivity, they grew in number. Same thing happened in Egypt.
17:7 There was also another great eagle with great wings and many feathers: and, behold, this vine did bend her roots toward him, and shot forth her branches toward him, that he might water it by the furrows of her plantation.
This represents the princes of Judah looking to the pharaoh of Egypt for salvation.
17:8 It was planted in a good soil by great waters, that it might bring forth branches, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a goodly (magnificent) vine.
17:9 Say you, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Shall it prosper? shall he (the first eagle- Nebuchadnezzar) not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither? it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof. (2Ki 25:7)
The ones that tried to relocate to Egypt made a big mistake, as Yahweh promised it would be.
17:10 Yea, behold, being planted, shall it prosper? shall it not utterly wither, when the east wind toucheth it? it shall wither in the furrows where it grew.
The east wind is the famous Sirocco of the middle east. A very hot and dry wind that parches everything. Also may be a reference to the race mixing that eventually bred the white race out of existence. The original Egyptians (Ham) were white. The original Arabs (Ishmael) were white.
Hosea 13:15 Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come, the wind of Yahweh shall come up from the wilderness, and his spring shall become dry, and his fountain shall be dried up: he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.
17:11 Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
17:12 Say now to the rebellious house, Know you not what these things mean? tell them, Behold, the king of Babylon is come to Jerusalem, and hath taken the king thereof, and the princes thereof, and led them with him to Babylon;
17:13 And hath taken of the king's seed, and made a covenant with him, and hath taken an oath of him: he hath also taken the mighty (leaders) of the land:
17:14 That the kingdom might be base, that it might not lift itself up, but that by keeping of his covenant it might stand.
Zedekiah was 'of the king's seed'. The eagle of verse 3, Nebuchadnezzar, made a covenant with Jehoiakin's brother Zedekiah.
17:15 But he (Zedekiah) rebelled against him (Nebuchadnezzar) in sending his ambassadors into Egypt, that they might give him horses and much people. Shall he prosper? shall he escape that doeth such things? or shall he break the covenant (with Nebuchadnezzar) , and be delivered?
2Kings 24:20 For through the anger of Yahweh it came to pass in Jerusalem and Judah, until He had cast them out from His presence, that Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
2Chronicles 36:13 And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto Yahweh God of Israel.
17:16 As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, surely in the place where the king (Nebuchadnezzar) dwelleth that made him (Zedekiah) king, whose oath he despised, and whose covenant he brake, even with him in the midst of Babylon he (Zedekiah) shall die.
17:17 Neither shall Pharaoh with his mighty army and great company make for him in the war, by casting up mounts (seige mounds), and building forts, to cut off many persons: (Jer 37:7)
17:18 Seeing he (Zedekiah) despised the oath by breaking the covenant, when, lo, he had given his hand, and hath done all these things, he shall not escape.
17:19 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; As I live, surely Mine oath that he hath despised, and My covenant that he hath broken, even it will I recompense upon his own head.
17:20 And I will spread My net upon him, and he shall be taken in My snare, and I will bring him to Babylon, and will plead (pass judgment) with him there for his trespass that he hath trespassed against Me.
17:21 And all his fugitives with all his bands shall fall by the sword, and they that remain shall be scattered toward all winds: and you shall know that I Yahweh have spoken it.
17:22 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will also take of the highest branch (Jehoiachin) of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent:
This would be Tea Tephi, Zedekiah's daughter who with Jeremiah and Baruch, made their way from Jerusalem, with the fleeing 'bad figs' to Egypt for safety from Babylonian captivity. After Yahweh punished and killed off the fleeing party, they went on to Ireland and to Britain. The throne of David is occupied by Queen Elizabeth II, a descendant of Judah, a white woman. Not a Jew.
17:23 In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly (majestic) cedar: and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell.
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of Yahweh's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
17:24 And all the trees of the field shall know that I Yahweh have brought down the high tree (Zarah Judah), have exalted the low tree (Pharez Judah), have dried up the green tree (Zarah), and have made the dry tree (Pharez) to flourish: I Yahweh have spoken and have done it.
The soul that obeys and the soul that sins
Ezekiel 18:1 The word of Yahweh came unto me again, saying,
18:2 What mean you, that you use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge (blunted)?
27 Behold, the days come, saith Yahweh, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast (other races).
28 And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith Yahweh.
29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.
30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.
Lamentations 5:7 Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.
Besides the ungodly interracial commerce, race mixing was the main crime. The sour grapes are the race mixed children, these cannot be cleansed nor hold His spirit (DNA).
31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom (fornication, race mixing), and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
18:3 As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, you shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.
18:4 Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul (life) of the father, so also the soul (life) of the son is Mine: the soul (life) that sinneth, it shall die.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Prince.
18:5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
18:6 And hath not eaten upon the mountains (eaten food sacrificed to idols), neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman,
18:7 And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment;
Exodus 22:21 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger (sojourning kinsmen), nor oppress him: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
18:8 He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,
Exodus 22:25 If you lend money to any of My people that is poor by you, you shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt you lay upon him usury. (Lev 25:36)
Deuteronomy 23:19 You shalt not lend upon usury to your brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
18:9 Hath walked in My statutes, and hath kept My judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith Yahweh GOD.
Amos 5:4 For thus saith Yahweh unto the house of Israel, Seek you Me, and you shall live:
18:10 If he beget a son that is a robber (violent), a shedder of blood, and that doeth the like to any one of these things, (Gen 9:6)
18:11 And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife,
18:12 Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence (robbery), hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination,
18:13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood (blood guilt) shall be upon him. (Lev 20:9, 11-13,16,27)
18:14 Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like,
18:15 That hath not eaten upon the mountains (eaten food sacrificed to idols), neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour's wife,
18:16 Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment,
18:17 That hath taken off his hand (forgiven debts) from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed My judgments, hath walked in My statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.
18:18 As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence (robbery), and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity.
18:19 Yet say you, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all My statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.
Exodus 20:5 You shalt not bow down thyself to 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;
18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all My statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.
If a father is wicked, the son will learn from wickedness. The cycle of wickedness follows each generation born in wickedness. If the son breaks away from the wickedness, and lives righteously, he will live.
This goes for today's “churches” as well. If your grandparents worshiped a Jewish Jesus, and your dad, and you, even your children will follow this pattern of wickedness, and will all die.
18:23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith Yahweh GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?
18:24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
18:25 Yet you say, The way of Yahweh is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not My way equal? are not your ways unequal?
18:26 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die (the second death).
18:27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
18:28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
18:29 Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of Yahweh is not equal. O house of Israel, are not My ways equal? are not your ways unequal?
18:30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith Yahweh GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
18:31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel?
22 That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man (sin), which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith Yahweh GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live you.
Wisdom of Solomon 1:13 For God made not death: neither hath He pleasure in the destruction of the living.
Lament for the prince
Ezekiel 19:1 Moreover take you up a lamentation for the princes of Israel,
Princes should be singular, speaking of Zedekiah. The Hebrew and Septuagint agree.
19:2 And say, What is your mother? A lioness: she lay down among lions, she nourished her whelps among young lions.
19:3 And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young lion, and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men (the seed of adam).
19:4 The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit, and they brought him with chains unto the land of Egypt.
19:5 Now when she saw that she had waited, and her hope was lost, then she took another of her whelps, and made him a young lion.
2Kings 23:34 And Pharaohnechoh made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in the room of Josiah his father, and turned his name to Jehoiakim, and took Jehoahaz away: and he came to Egypt, and died there.
19:6 And he (Jehoiakim) went up and down among the lions, he became a young lion, and learned to catch the prey, and devoured men (seed of adam). (Jer 22:13-17)
19:7 And he knew (ravaged) their desolate palaces, and he laid waste their cities; and the land was desolate, and the fulness thereof, by the noise of his roaring (figurative of a conquering king).
19:8 Then the nations set against him on every side from the provinces (of the Babylonian empire), and spread their net over him: he was taken in their pit.
2Kings 24:2 And Yahweh sent against him bands of the Chaldees, and bands of the Syrians, and bands of the Moabites, and bands of the children of Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of Yahweh, which He spake by His servants the prophets.
19:9 And they put him (Jehoiakim) in ward in chains, and brought him to the king of Babylon: they brought him into holds, that his voice should no more be heard upon the mountains of Israel.
2Chronicles 36:6 Against him came up Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon.
Jeremiah 22:18 Therefore thus saith Yahweh concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him, saying, Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his glory!
19:10 Your mother is like a vine in your blood (vineyard), planted by the waters: she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters.
The mother is the nation. The many waters are the tribes of Israel, and also the nations that Israel had ruled over.
KJV error. Blood is H1818 and does not belong here.
The Hebrew reads as: 10 Your mother was like a vine in your vineyard (H3754), planted by the waters: becoming fruitful and full of branches from abundant waters.
19:11 And she had strong rods for the sceptres of them that bare rule, and her stature was exalted among the thick branches, and she appeared in her height with the multitude of her branches.
Phoenician Hebrews. Phoenician artifacts were found here in America. Celtic and Viking artifacts as well. These tribes, nations, people were our ancestors. Israelites.
Daniel 4:11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto the sky, and the sight thereof to the end of all the land:
19:12 But she was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were broken and withered; the fire consumed them.
19:13 And now she is (trans)planted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty ground.
19:14 And fire is gone out of a rod of her branches, which hath devoured her fruit, so that she hath no strong rod to be a sceptre to rule. This is a lamentation, and shall be for a lamentation. (Jud 9:15)
Ezekiel 20:1 And it came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month, that certain of the elders of Israel came to enquire of Yahweh, and sat before me.
Seventh year of capture of Jehoiachin. About 590 BC. 3-4 years before Jerusalem is destroyed.
20:2 Then came the word of Yahweh unto me, saying,
20:3 Son of man (adam), speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Are you come to enquire of Me? As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, I will not be enquired of by you.
Yahweh does not enquire of sinners. They have no standing in prayer. We must first acknowledge AND repent. Then He will listen.
20:4 Wilt you judge them, son of man (adam), wilt you judge them? cause them to know the abominations of their fathers:
The Septuagint reads: 4 Shall I utterly take vengeance on them, son of Adam? testify to them of the iniquities of their fathers:
20:5 And say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up Mine hand (as an oath) unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made Myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up Mine hand unto them, saying, I am Yahweh your God;
Exodus 6:7 And I will take you to Me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and you shall know that I am Yahweh your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
Deuteronomy 7:6 For you art an holy (set apart) people unto Yahweh your God: Yahweh your God hath chosen you to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
20:6 In the day that I lifted up Mine hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied (sought out) for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory (most beautiful) of all lands:
20:7 Then said I unto them, Cast you away every man the abominations of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am Yahweh your God.
20:8 But they rebelled against Me, and would not hearken unto Me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out My fury upon them, to accomplish My anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.
20:9 But I wrought (acted) for My name's sake, that it should not be polluted before the heathen (nations), among whom they were, in whose sight I made Myself known unto them, in bringing them forth out of the land of Egypt.
20:10 Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt, and brought them into the wilderness.
20:11 And I gave them My statutes, and shewed them My judgments, which if a man (adam) do, he shall even live in them.
If you do His commandments, you shall even have life in them.
20:12 Moreover also I gave them My sabbaths, to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am Yahweh that sanctify them.
20:13 But the house of Israel rebelled against Me in the wilderness: they walked not in My statutes, and they despised My judgments, which if a man (adam) do, he shall even live (have life) in them; and My sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out My fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.
Numbers 14:22 Because all those men which have seen My glory, and My miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice;
Psalm 78:40 How oft did they provoke Him in the wilderness, and grieve Him in the desert!
20:14 But I wrought (acted) for My name's sake, that it should not be polluted before the heathen (nations), in whose sight I brought them out.
20:15 Yet also I lifted up My hand unto them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory (most beautiful) of all lands;
20:16 Because they despised My judgments, and walked not in My statutes, but polluted My sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols.
20:17 Nevertheless Mine eye spared them (looked with compassion) from destroying them, neither did I make an end of them in the wilderness.
20:18 But I said unto their children in the wilderness, Walk you not in the statutes of your fathers, neither observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols:
20:19 I am Yahweh your God; walk in My statutes, and keep My judgments, and do them;
20:20 And hallow My sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am Yahweh your God.
Jeremiah 17:22 Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do you any work, but hallow you the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers.
20:21 Notwithstanding the children rebelled against Me: they walked not in My statutes, neither kept My judgments to do them, which if a man (adam) do, he shall even live (have life) in them; they polluted My sabbaths: then I said, I would pour out My fury upon them, to accomplish My anger against them in the wilderness.
1 And Israel abode in Shittim (east of the Jordan), and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
2 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
3 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of Yahweh was kindled against Israel.
20:22 Nevertheless I withdrew Mine hand, and wrought (acted) for My name's sake, that it should not be polluted in the sight of the heathen (nations), in whose sight I brought them forth.
20:23 I lifted up Mine hand (as an oath) unto them also in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the heathen (nations), and disperse them through the countries; (Lev 26:33, Deut 28:64)
20:24 Because they had not executed My judgments, but had despised My statutes, and had polluted My sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers' idols.
20:25 Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live;
Speaking of being given over to the laws and the land where they were dispersed that were not good for them.
20:26 And I polluted them in their own gifts, in that they caused to pass through the fire all that openeth the womb, that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am Yahweh.
The phrase 'pass through the fire' is referring to the Canaanite Jew sacrificial rituals where children are offered to Baal (the Lord) by being thrown in the fire.
20:27 Therefore, son of man (adam), speak unto the house of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Yet in this your fathers have blasphemed Me, in that they have committed a trespass against Me.
Romans 2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the nations through you, as it is written.
The Lord is a title, and not God's name. This is the title of Baal. When you call upon the Lord, you are calling upon Satan. STOP IT! His name is Yahweh (I AM).
20:28 For when I had brought them into the land, for the which I lifted up Mine hand to give it to them, then they saw every high hill (pagan altars), and all the thick trees (groves), and they offered there their sacrifices, and there they presented the provocation of their offering: there also they made their sweet savour, and poured out there their drink offerings.
Isaiah 57:5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?
20:29 Then I said unto them, What is the high place whereunto you go? And the name thereof is called Bamah unto this day.
Bamah means the heights of Baal, high places for pagan sacrifice.
20:30 Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Are you polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit you whoredom (religious fornication) after their abominations (idols)?
20:31 For when you offer your gifts, when you make your sons to pass through the fire, you pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be enquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, I will not be enquired of by you.
Yahweh will not be enquired by practicing sinners.
20:32 And that which cometh into your mind shall not be at all, that you say, We will be as the heathen (nations), as the families of the countries, to serve wood and stone.
20:33 As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you:
20:34 And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein you are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.
20:35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you (in judgment) face to face.
9 Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith Yahweh, and with your children's children will I plead.
35 Yet you sayest, Because I am innocent, surely His anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with you, because you sayest, I have not sinned.
20:36 Like as I pleaded (in judgment) with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead (in judgment) with you, saith Yahweh GOD.
20:37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod (as a shepherd counting his sheep), and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant (the New Covenant):
20:38 And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against Me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
20:39 As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith Yahweh GOD; Go you, serve you every one his idols, and hereafter also, if you will not hearken unto Me: but pollute you My holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols.
Go to your idols (TV, sports, materialism, Jewish Jesus) if you will not listen to Yahweh. But stop performing empty rituals in His name (putting in your hour at church, honoring with your lips and not your hearts). Without true knowledge and understanding of your heritage and duty, you are polluting His holy name.
Judges 10:14 Go and cry unto the gods which you have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.
Psalm 81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.
20:40 For in Mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith Yahweh GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve Me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings (offerings set aside for holy use exclusively), and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things (chief offerings, the best of).
20:41 I will accept you with your sweet savour (odor), when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein you have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen (nations).
He is comparing them to the acceptable smoke of sacrifice.
Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
20:42 And you shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up Mine hand to give it to your fathers.
This is a dual prophecy. When they return from Babylonian captivity.
This is also a prophecy of Europe and America, where the Israelites went after the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities. This is not about Palestine, they are in Palestine. The house of Israel (10 northern tribes) never returned, they were scattered in 745 BC and the leftovers in 586BC. America is the regathering place of the 12 tribes of Israel. The fathers spoken of at the end of verse 42 are the fathers of the Israelites that were already making their way through the wilderness.
20:43 And there shall you remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein you have been defiled; and you shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that you have committed.
The Reformation and eventual founding of America. Ame-My people Rica-plentiful land.
When we see how we were sinful, we will hate our former practices.
20:44 And you shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have wrought (deal) with you for My name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt doings, O you house of Israel, saith Yahweh GOD.
The Hebrew ends chapter 20 here and begins chapter 21.
20:45 (Chapter 21:1) Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
20:46 (21:2) Son of man (adam), set your face toward the south, and drop your word (of prophecy) toward the south, and prophesy against the forest (figure of the land and people of Judah) of the south field;
Septuagint has: 46 Son of Adam, set your face against Thaeman (Teman). and look toward Darom, and prophesy against the chief forest of Nageb,
20:47 (21:3) And say to the forest (people of Judah) of the south, Hear the word of Yahweh; Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in you, and it shall devour every green tree in you, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein.
The green and dry tree are figurative of people with the spirit and without the spirit.
Jeremiah 21:14 But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith Yahweh: and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.
Luke 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
20:48 (21:4) And all flesh shall see that I Yahweh have kindled it: it shall not be quenched.
20:49 (21:5) Then said I (Ezekiel), Ah Yahweh GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak parables?
Ezekiel 21:1 (21:6) And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
21:2 (21:7) Son of man (adam), set your face toward Jerusalem, and drop (explain prophecy) toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land (people) of Israel,
21:3 (21:8) And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith Yahweh; Behold, I am against you, and will draw forth My sword (foreign troops) out of his sheath, and will cut off from you the righteous and the wicked.
21:4 (21:9) Seeing then that I will cut off from you the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall My sword (foreign troops) go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north:
21:5 (21:10) That all flesh may know that I Yahweh have drawn forth My sword (foreign troops) out of his sheath: it shall not return any more (to it's sheath).
Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
21:6 (21:11) Sigh therefore, you son of man (adam), with the breaking of your loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.
Isaiah 22:4 Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.
21:7 (21:12) And it shall be, when they say unto you, Wherefore sighest you? that you shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt (lose courage), and all hands shall be feeble (lack of strength), and every spirit (center of will) shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith Yahweh GOD.
21:8 (21:13) Again the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
21:9 (21:14) Son of man (adam), prophesy, and say, Thus saith Yahweh; Say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished (polished):
The glittering polished sword of punishment.
Deuteronomy 32:41 For I will sharpen My sword like lightning, and My hand shall take hold of judgment; and I will render judgment to My enemies, and will recompense them that hate Me.
21:10 (21:15) It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished (polished) that it may glitter: should we then make mirth? it contemneth (despises, rejects) the rod of My son, as every tree (symbols of discipline).
21:11 (21:16) And He hath given it to be furbished (polished), that it may be handled: this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished (polished), to give it into the hand of the slayer.
21:12 (21:17) Cry and howl, son of man (adam): for it shall be upon My people, it shall be upon all the princes of Israel: terrors by reason of the sword shall be upon My people: smite therefore upon your thigh (sign of grief).
21:13 (21:18) Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn (despise, reject) even the rod? it shall be no more, saith Yahweh GOD.
21:14 (21:19) You therefore, son of man (adam), prophesy, and smite your hands together (sign of grief), and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great men that are slain, which entereth into their privy chambers.
21:15 (21:20) I have set the point (slaughter H2874) of the sword against all their gates, that their heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up (polished) for the slaughter.
21:16 (21:21) Go you one way or other (H258/2300 Be sharpened), either on the right hand, or on the left, whithersoever your face is set.
The sword is the king of Babel.
21:17 (21:22) I will also smite Mine hands together, and I will cause My fury to rest: I Yahweh have said it.
21:18 (21:23) The word of Yahweh came unto Me again, saying,
21:19 (21:24) Also, you son of man (adam), appoint you two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come: both twain (two) shall come forth out of one land: and choose you a place, choose it at the head of the way to the city.
Ezekiel is going to make a little place to watch all this.
21:20 (21:25) Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites, and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.
Amos 1:14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the day of battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind:
21:21 (21:26) For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images (idols), he looked in the liver.
The pagan priests thought that they could slay an animal and sacrifice it, and analyzing the liver they would give good or bad tidings.
21:22 (21:27) At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount (seige mound), and to build a fort (seige work).
21:23 (21:28) And it shall be unto them as a false divination in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths: but He will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
21:24 (21:29) Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that you are come to remembrance, you shall be taken with the hand.
21:25 (21:30) And you, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
Jeremiah 52:2 And he (Zedekiah) did that which was evil in the eyes of Yahweh, according to all that Jehoiakim had done.
21:26 (21:31) Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him (Zarah) that is low, and abase him (Pharez) that is high.
Zedekiah was blinded and taken to Babylon.
Luke 1:52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
21:27 (21:32) I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until He (Yahshua) come whose right it is; and I will give it Him.
This is Zedekiah's daughters, Jeremiah, Baruch, and the Stone of Destiny (Jacob's pillow).
Palestine to Ireland, to Scotland, to Britain. Three overturns.
Genesis 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and Yahweh God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David:
21:28 (21:33) And you, son of man (adam), prophesy and say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say you, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished (polished), to consume because of the glittering:
21:29 (21:34) Whiles they see vanity (false visions) unto you, whiles they divine a lie unto you, to bring you upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.
Psalm 37:13 Yahweh shall laugh at him: for He seeth that his day is coming.
21:30 (21:35) Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge you (Ammonites) in the place where you wast created, in the land of your nativity.
6 O you sword of Yahweh, how long will it be ere you be quiet? put up thyself into your scabbard, rest, and be still.
7 How can it be quiet, seeing Yahweh hath given it a charge against Ashkelon, and against the sea shore? there hath He appointed it.
21:31 (21:36) And I will pour out Mine indignation upon you, I will blow against you in the fire of My wrath, and deliver you into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy.
21:32 (21:37) You shalt be for fuel to the fire; your blood shall be in the midst of the land; you shalt be no more remembered: for I Yahweh have spoken it.
Why are the Ammonites mentioned?
Judges 3 and 1 Samuel 11, the Israelites were to clear them out, they were only reduced in number.
The children of Israel dwelt in the land of Ammon for centuries.
The Ammonites craftily brought Jotham gifts to buy him in 2 Chr 26, he later subjected them again in chapter 27.
Jeremiah prophesies against them in chapter 49.
Gad, Reuben and ½ of the tribe of Manasseh were supposed to take the land of the Ammonites, but did not clear them all out. So there was always a struggle between Israel and Ammon.
As a result, there were Israelites living in Ammon, Israelites identifying themselves as Ammon, and Israelites mixed with Ammonites. Hence, concerning the Ammonites.
Indictment against Jerusalem
Ezekiel 22:1 Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
22:2 Now, you son of man (adam), wilt you judge, wilt you judge the bloody city? yea, you shalt shew her all her abominations.
Nahum 3:1 Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not;
22:3 Then say you, Thus saith Yahweh GOD, The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself.
Yahweh would have Nebuchadnezzar burn all the houses because the pagan Israelites worshiped their idols upon their rooftops.
22:4 You art become guilty in your blood that you hast shed; and hast defiled yourself in your idols which you hast made; and you hast caused your days to draw near, and art come even unto your years: therefore have I made you a reproach unto the heathen (nations), and a mocking to all countries.
2Kings 21:6 And he (Manasseh) made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke Him to anger.
22:5 Those that be near, and those that be far from you, shall mock you, which art infamous and much vexed.
22:6 Behold, the princes of Israel, every one were in you to their power to shed blood.
The last part in Hebrew reads: '...each one in you became strong in order to pour out blood.'
22:7 In you have they set light by (treat with contempt) father and mother: in the midst of you have they dealt by oppression with (done extortion to) the stranger (sojourning kinsmen): in you have they vexed (oppressed) the fatherless and the widow. (Exo 20:12, 22:21-22; Deut 5:16, 24:17)
22:8 You hast despised Mine holy things, and hast profaned My sabbaths.
Leviticus 19:30 Ye shall keep My sabbaths, and reverence My sanctuary: I am Yahweh.
22:9 In you are men that carry tales (slander) to shed blood: and in you they eat upon the mountains (eating foods sacrificed to idols): in the midst of you they commit lewdness (unchastity).
Leviticus 19:16 You shalt not go up and down as a talebearer (deceitfully) among your people: neither shalt you stand against the blood of your neighbour: I am Yahweh.
Unchastity H2154 zimmah, as religious harlotry and sexual fornication during pagan rites.
22:10 In you have they discovered their fathers' nakedness (sex with fathers wife): in you have they humbled her that was set apart for pollution (sex with menstruous woman). (Lev 18:7-8,19)
22:11 And one hath committed abomination with his neighbour's wife; and another hath lewdly (unchastily) defiled his daughter in law; and another in you hath humbled his sister, his father's daughter.
22:12 In you have they taken gifts (bribes) to shed blood; you hast taken usury and increase, and you hast greedily gained of your neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten Me, saith Yahweh GOD.
Exodus 23:8 And you shalt take no gift (reward): for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
Deuteronomy 16:19 You shalt not wrest judgment; you shalt not respect persons (status), neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
22:13 Behold, therefore I have smitten Mine hand at your dishonest gain which you hast made, and at your blood which hath been in the midst of you.
Killing by legal means. The same happens today to our people. Unjust laws and judgments. False flag events, set ups, deceit.
22:14 Can your heart endure, or can your hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with you? I Yahweh have spoken it, and will do it.
22:15 And I will scatter you among the heathen (nations), and disperse you in the countries, and will consume your filthiness out of you.
Amos 9:9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as grain is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the ground.
The phrase 'not the least grain fall' refers to the Israelites that were scattered among the nations would not be destroyed. They are cleansed, purged and then regathered.
22:16 And you shalt take your inheritance in yourself in the sight of the heathen (nations), and you shalt know that I am Yahweh.
Septuagint: 16 And I will give heritages in you in the sight of the nations, and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
NAS reads: You will profane yourself in the sight of the nations, and you will know that I am Yahweh.
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.
22:23 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
22:24 Son of man (adam), say unto her, You art the land that is not cleansed (ritual cleansed, ready for worship), nor rained upon in the day of indignation.
22:25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.
Hosea 6:9 And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness.
Matthew 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees (Jews), hypocrites! for you devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore you shall receive the greater damnation.
Micah 3:11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon Yahweh, and say, Is not Yahweh among us? none evil can come upon us.
The leaders, prophets and priests were corrupt and evil, preying on the people for gain.
22:26 Her priests have violated My law (torah), and have profaned Mine holy things: they have put no difference (distinction) between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from (disregarded) My sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
Leviticus 10:10 And that you may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;
Malachi 2:8 But you are departed out of the way; you have caused many to stumble at the law; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi (priesthood), saith Yahweh of hosts.
The phrase 'between the unclean and the clean' is a reference to the race of Yahweh's children and the other races. The “churches” show no difference between the races, they accept them, their traditions, and race mix with them. Yahweh demands we be separate and clean.
22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.
Are you listening John Hagee, Billy Graham, and Joel Osteen?
Isaiah 1:23 Your princes are rebellious, companions of thieves, loving bribes, seeking after rewards; not pleading for orphans, and not heeding the cause of widows.
22:28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity (visions of emptiness), and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith Yahweh GOD, when Yahweh hath not spoken.
Exactly what is happening in the pulpit today.
22:29 The people of the land have used (practice) oppression (extortion), and exercised (take things violently)(by) robbery, and have vexed (oppressed) the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger (sojourning kinsmen) wrongfully.
Exodus 23:9 Also you shalt not oppress a stranger (sojourning kinsmen): for you know the heart of a stranger, seeing you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge (wall of truth), and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
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.
Two adulteress sisters
Ezekiel 23:1 The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying,
23:2 Son of man (adam), there were two women, the daughters of one mother:
7 And I said after she had done all these things, Turn you unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.
8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce (Assyrian captivity); yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
23:3 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed (squeezed), and there they bruised the teats (nipples) of their virginity.
Leviticus 17:7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations.
Joshua 24:14 Now therefore fear Yahweh, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve you Yahweh.
23:4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were Mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.
Ahola is Samaria, the house of Israel. Aholah = “her own tent” (tent woman, the elder).
Aholibah is Judah (Jerusalem), the house of Judah. Aholibah = “woman of the tent” or “the tent is in her”.
23:5 And Aholah (Israel) played the harlot when she was Mine; and she doted on (on fire for) her lovers, on the Assyrians (Asshur) her neighbours,
Hosea 8:9 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.
23:6 Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.
23:7 Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that were the chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom she doted: with all their idols she defiled herself.
The Assyrians were not Israelites, but they were Adamites, meaning kinsmen, the same race. They were descendants of Shem, Noah's son. They were of the tribe of Asshur. They were also pagans.
Yahweh will not allow an Adamite into His congregation until the fourth generation if that Adamite was of a pagan background and tradition...
Exodus 34:7 and Numbers 14:18 Yahweh is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.
Deuteronomy 5:9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself 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,
Deuteronomy 23:8 The children that are begotten of them (Adamites) shall enter into the congregation of Yahweh in their third generation.
It took three or four generations of living under Yahweh's laws to cleanse out the idolatry and traditions of paganism. That's why the original generation that left Egypt in the Exodus never made it into the Promised Land. Only Joshua and Caleb were allowed, along with the generation that was brought up in the desert.
Septuagint Ezekiel 23:7 And she (Israel) bestowed her fornication upon them; all were choice sons of the Assyrians (Asshur): and on whomsoever she doted herself, with them she defiled herself in all their devices.
23:8 Neither left she her whoredoms (religious fornication) brought from Egypt: for in her youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity (pressed her virgin nipples), and poured their whoredom (religious fornications, foreign gods) upon her.
23:9 Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.
23:10 These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her daughters, and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among women (as a whore); for they had executed judgment upon her.
23:11 And when her sister Aholibah (Jerusalem) saw this, she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms (religious fornications) more than her sister in her whoredoms, (improper foreign relations).
23:12 She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men.
Women love men in uniform.
23:13 Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way,
Septuagint: 13 And I saw that they were defiled, that the two (sisters) had one way (whoredom).
23:14 And that she increased her whoredoms (improper foreign relations): for when she saw men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with vermilion,
23:15 Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes (officers) to look to (of pleasing appearance), after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity:
23:16 And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon (lusted) them, and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea.
23:17 And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom (improper religious fornication), and she was polluted with them, and her mind was alienated from them (became disgusted with them).
23:18 So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness: then My mind was alienated from her, like as My mind was alienated from her sister.
Jeremiah 6:8 Be you instructed, O Jerusalem, lest My soul depart from you; lest I make you desolate, a land not inhabited.
23:19 Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt.
23:20 For she doted upon (lusted) their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses.
Paramour is a lover, a wooer, a mistress. Issue is, Feminine of H2230 a gush of water: - flood, overflowing, storm, tempest. ; a gushing of fluid (semen): - issue.
Septuagint: 20 and you didst dote upon the Chaldeans, whose flesh is as the flesh of the asses, and their members as the members of horses.
Different breeds of people. Most were mixed by this time.
23:21 Thus you calledst to remembrance the lewdness (unchastity) of your youth, in bruising (pressing) your teats (nipples) by the Egyptians for the paps (breasts) of your youth.
23:22 Therefore, O Aholibah (Jerusalem), thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will raise up your lovers against you, from whom your mind is alienated (became disgusted with), and I will bring them against you on every side;
23:23 The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans, Pekod, and Shoa, and Koa, and all the Assyrians with them: all of them desirable young men, captains and rulers, great lords and renowned, all of them riding upon horses.
Pekod were the people in the army of Babel from a tribe southeast of Babylon bordering Elam. Shoa were nomads from Mesopotamia. Koa were people from a territory in Mesopotamia east of the Tigris, on the border of Elam and Media.
23:24 And they shall come against you with chariots, wagons, and wheels, and with an assembly of people, which shall set against you buckler and shield and helmet round about: and I will set judgment before them, and they shall judge you according to their judgments (their own justice).
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.
23:26 They shall also strip you out of your clothes, and take away your fair jewels.
23:27 Thus will I make your lewdness (unchastity) to cease from you, and your whoredom brought from the land of Egypt: so that you shalt not lift up your eyes unto them, nor remember Egypt any more.
23:28 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will deliver you into the hand of them whom you hatest, into the hand of them from whom your mind is alienated (became disgusted with):
23:29 And they shall deal with you hatefully, and shall take away all your labour, and shall leave you naked and bare: and the nakedness of your whoredoms shall be discovered, both your lewdness (unchastity) and your whoredoms.
23:30 I will do these things unto you, because you hast gone a whoring (international religious fornication) after the heathen (nations), and because you art polluted with their idols.
23:31 You hast walked in the way of your sister; therefore will I give her cup (of wrath of Yahweh) into your hand.
23:32 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; You shalt drink of your sister's cup deep and large: you shalt be laughed to scorn and had in derision; it containeth much.
23:33 You shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, with the cup of astonishment (appallment) and desolation (devestation), with the cup of your sister Samaria (house of Israel).
23:34 You shalt even drink it and suck (drain) it out, and you shalt break (gnaw)(as breaking of bones and gnawing the marrow) the sherds (potsherds) thereof , and pluck off your own breasts: for I have spoken it, saith Yahweh GOD.
Psalm 75:8 For in the hand of Yahweh there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and He poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
Isaiah 51:17 Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of Yahweh the cup of His fury; you hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out.
23:35 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you hast forgotten Me, and cast Me behind your back, therefore bear you also your lewdness (unchastity) and your whoredoms (improper religious fornication and idolatry).
The “churches” tossed out the Old Testament. Tossed out the history and heritage of our people. The covenants, promises and commandments of our people.
Jeremiah 2:32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet My people have forgotten Me days without number.
Jeremiah 3:20 Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have you dealt treacherously with Me, O house of Israel, saith Yahweh.
23:36 Yahweh said moreover unto me; Son of man (adam), wilt you judge Aholah and Aholibah? yea, declare unto them their abominations;
23:37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto Me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them.
First born sons sacrificed to Molech (Baal, the Lord, the Devil).
23:38 Moreover this they have done unto Me: they have defiled My sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned My sabbaths.
23:39 For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into My sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of Mine house.
23:40 And furthermore, that you have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent; and, lo, they came: for whom you didst wash yourself, paintedst your eyes, and deckedst yourself with ornaments,
Famous personalities from other nations. Athletes, rock stars, movie stars, etc.
23:41 And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it, whereupon you hast set Mine incense and Mine oil.
23:42 And a voice of a multitude being at ease (H7961 shalev) was with her: and with the men of the common sort were brought Sabeans from the wilderness, which put bracelets upon their hands, and beautiful crowns upon their heads.
Being at ease is considered corrupt.
The Hebrew reads as such: 42 And a noise of a multitude was with her: with abundant men of Adam were brought Sebaiym from the wilderness, which put bracelets on their arms, and glorious crowns upon their heads.
The Sabeans were of the first son of Cush (Kush). Seba.
23:43 Then said I unto her that was old (worn out) in adulteries, Will they now commit whoredoms with her, and she with them?
23:44 Yet they went in unto her, as they go in unto a woman that playeth the harlot: so went they in unto Aholah and unto Aholibah, the lewd (unchaste) women.
23:45 And the righteous men, they shall judge them after the manner of adulteresses, and after the manner of women that shed blood; because they are adulteresses, and blood is in their hands.
From the sacrifices that they make.
23:46 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will bring up a company upon them, and will give them to be removed and spoiled.
23:47 And the company shall stone them with stones, and dispatch them (cut them down) with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and burn up their houses with fire.
They kept and worshiped idols on their rooftops.
23:48 Thus will I cause lewdness (unchastity) to cease out of the land, that all women (figurative for other cities in Israel) may be taught not to do after your lewdness (unchastity).
23:49 And they shall recompense your lewdness (unchastity) upon you, and you shall bear the sins of your idols: and you shall know that I am Yahweh GOD.
The people were practicing foreign religious sexual and idolatrous ways. Worshiping idols, race-mixing, and everything else evil.
The boiling pot
Ezekiel 24:1 Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
24:2 Son of man (adam), write you the name of the day, even of this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day.
2Kings 25:1 And it came to pass in the ninth year of his (Zedekiah's) reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came, he, and all his host, against Jerusalem, and pitched against it; and they built forts against it round about. (Jer 39:1, 52:4)
24:3 And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water into it:
24:4 Gather the pieces thereof into it, even every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder; fill it with the choice bones.
Choice H4005 mibchâr pronounced mib-khawr'
From H977 to try, that is, (by implication) select: - acceptable, appoint, choose (choice), excellent, join, be rather, require.; select, that is, best: - choice (-st), chosen.
Bones H6106 ‛etsem pronounced eh'-tsem
From H6105 to bind fast, that is, close (the eyes); intransitively to be (causatively make) powerful or numerous; denominatively to crunch the bones: - break the bones, close, be great, be increased, be (wax) mighty (-ier), be more, shut, be (-come, make) strong (-er). ; a bone (as strong); by extension the body; figuratively the substance, that is, (as pronoun) selfsame: - body, bone, X life, (self-) same, strength, X very.
24:5 Take the choice of the flock, and burn also the bones under it, and make it boil well, and let them seethe the bones of it therein.
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.
The last part is unclear in the Hebrew.
2Samuel 8:2 And he (David) smote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground; even with two lines measured he to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites became David's servants, and brought gifts.
Joel 3:3 And they have cast lots for My people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
Instead of ridding the land of these Canaanites and Edomites as they were told to do, they allowed the thorns and briers to hang around.
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.
Habakkuk 2:12 Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!
Shedding blood and mixing blood, sacrificing children.
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.
1Samuel 15:29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor change His mind: for He is not a man, that He should change His mind.
Septuagint: 29 And Israel shall be divided to two: and God will not turn nor change His mind, for He is not as a man to change His mind.
24:15 Also the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
24:16 Son of man (adam), behold, I take away from you the desire of your eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt you mourn nor weep, neither shall your tears run down.
The desire of your eyes is a reference to his loved ones.
24:17 Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead, bind the tire of your head upon you, and put on your shoes upon your feet, and cover not your lips, and eat not the bread of men (food brought by friends wishing to comfort the widower).
Jeremiah 16:5 For thus saith Yahweh enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away My peace from this people, saith Yahweh, even lovingkindness and mercies.
Leviticus 10:6 And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest you die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which Yahweh hath kindled.
Leviticus 21:10 And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;
24:18 So I spake unto the people in the morning: and at even my wife died; and I did in the morning as I was commanded.
Ezekiel's own wife was used as an example of the judgment that will have come upon all Jerusalem. But don't feel bad for Ezekiel or his wife, they obeyed and will have their reward.
24:19 And the people said unto me, Wilt you not tell us what these things are to us, that you doest so?
24:20 Then I answered them, The word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
24:21 Speak unto the house of Israel, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will profane My sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul pitieth; and your sons and your daughters whom you have left shall fall by the sword.
Jeremiah 7:14 Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by My name, wherein you trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.
24:22 And you (Israel) shall do as I (Ezekiel) have done: you shall not cover your lips, nor eat the bread of men (food brought by friends wishing to comfort the widower).
24:23 And your tires (turban) shall be upon your heads, and your shoes upon your feet: you shall not mourn nor weep; but you shall pine away for your iniquities, and mourn one toward another.
Ezekiel was an example, he lost his wife but obeyed Yahweh's command. Israel was to do the same.
24:24 Thus Ezekiel is unto you a sign: according to all that he hath done shall you do: and when this cometh, you shall know that I am Yahweh GOD.
Leviticus 26:39 And they that are left of you shall pine away (perish) in their iniquity (because of their sins) in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away (consume away) with them.
24:25 Also, you son of man (adam), shall it not be in the day when I take from them their strength (referring to the fortified city of Jerusalem), the joy of their glory (Yahweh's Temple), the desire of their eyes (wives), and that whereupon they set their minds, their sons and their daughters,
24:26 That he that escapeth in that day shall come unto you, to cause you to hear it with your ears?
24:27 In that day shall your mouth be opened to him which is escaped, and you shalt speak, and be no more dumb (speechless): and you shalt be a sign unto them; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
Looking forward to the gospel. Those that escaped and/or were able to return to Jerusalem. They were used so that the rest of Israel knows that Yahweh is who He says He is and does what He says He will do.
The remnant that returned rebuilt Jerusalem, re-instituted the laws of Yahweh and brought in the Messiah. The apostles were of the tribe of Benjamin, of the house of Judah. After Christ died and rose, and the destruction of the Jerusalem in 70 AD, Israel never returned to Palestine again.
In the past few chapters of Ezekiel we saw being portrayed the same pattern of sin and punishment which was outlined over and over by the true prophets. That the people are suffering the destruction of their society and are being taken into captivity because they allowed the immorality and evil which came into their nation through interracial commerce, usury, and race mixing. Yet a clear underlining theme is that Israel would be preserved, sifted and purged during this captivity, and ultimately delivered and rebuilt, and a new covenant would be made with the children of Israel (Ez 20:37, 34:25,37:26).
Proclaimation against Ammon
Ezekiel 25:1 The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying,
25:2 Son of man (adam), set your face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against them;
25:3 And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of Yahweh GOD; Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you saidst, Aha, against My sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity;
Proverbs 17:5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
25:4 Behold, therefore I will deliver you to the men of the east for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in you, and make their dwellings in you: they shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk.
The Septuagint has the men of the east as Kedem. Cain went east.
25:5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a couchingplace for flocks: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
Isaiah 17:2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
Aroer means nudity of situation.
Ammon and Moab were children of incest, who mixed with Canaanites.
25:6 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you hast clapped your hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all your despite (spite) against the land (people) of Israel;
25:7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out Mine hand upon you, and will deliver you for a spoil to the heathen (nations); and I will cut you off from the people, and I will cause you to perish out of the countries: I will destroy you; and you shalt know that I am Yahweh. (Jer 49:1-6; Eze 21:28-32; Amos 1:13-15; Zeph 2:8-11)
25:8 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because that Moab and Seir (Esau's people) do say, Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen (nations); (Is 15/16)
25:9 Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the country, Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim,
In Joshua 13:20, Numbers 32:37-38 these were all cities of Reuben. We have to understand that there can be Israelites living in these Edomite lands.
This would lead to tension with Israelites of Israelite lands, in this case, Judah (Jerusalem).
25:10 Unto the men of the east (Kedem) with the Ammonites, and will give them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the nations.
25:11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know that I am Yahweh. (Is 15:1-16:14, 25:10-12; Jer 48:1-47, Amos 2:1-3; Zeph 2:8-11)
Proclaimation against Edom.
25:12 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended (committed lasting wrong), and revenged himself upon them;
25:13 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will also stretch out Mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man (adam) and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.
25:14 And I will lay My vengeance upon Edom by the hand of My people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to Mine anger and according to My fury; and they shall know My vengeance, saith Yahweh GOD.
Isaiah 11:14 But they (Ephraim) shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them. (Isa 34:5-17, 63:1-6; Jer 49:7-22; Eze 35:1-15; Amos 1:11-12; Obadiah; Mal 1:2-5)
Proclaimation against the Philistines.
25:15 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for the old hatred (continual emnity);
Jeremiah 25:20 And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,
They all were going to drink the cup of Yahweh's wrath.
25:16 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will stretch out Mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.
Zephaniah 2:4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.
Jeremiah 47:4 Because of the day that cometh to spoil all the Philistines, and to cut off from Tyrus and Zidon every helper that remaineth: for Yahweh will spoil the Philistines, the remnant of the country of Caphtor.
25:17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall lay My vengeance upon them. (Isa 14:29-31; Jer 47:1-7; Joel 3:4-8; Zeph 2:4-7; Zech 9:5-7)
Chapter 29:1-16 belongs here after chapter 25.
Proclaimation against Egypt (Mitsrayim)
Ezekiel 29:1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
29:2 Son of man (adam), set your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
29:3 Speak, and say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon (crocodile) that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.
Jeremiah 44:30 Thus saith Yahweh; Behold, I will give Pharaohhophra king of Egypt into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of them that seek his life; as I gave Zedekiah king of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, his enemy, and that sought his life.
29:4 But I will put hooks in your jaws, and I will cause the fish of your rivers to stick unto your scales, and I will bring you up out of the midst of your rivers, and all the fish of your rivers shall stick unto your scales.
The dragon and the Pharaoh are not the same entity. The dragon would be the merchants (Jews). The Pharaoh was against Yahweh because he was allowing the dragon to take over.
The 'fish of the rivers' are people. This is a prophesy of the Hamites, the original white Egyptians and that they would be bred out of existence. This happened by race mixing with Canaanites and Hittites. When the Pharaoh died, his general and his army of blacks during the Nubium invasion (600BC ish) changed the bloodline within 70 years forever.
29:5 And I will leave you thrown into the wilderness, you and all the fish of your rivers: you shalt fall upon the open fields; you shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given you for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven (sky).
The beasts are the blacks and the fowls are the other races, at the time Hittites and Canaanites.
29:6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am Yahweh, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.
The phrase 'a staff of reed' is a reference that the Hamites (Egyptians) were a support and branch to the house of Israel. Israel is of the house of Shem, Ham's brother. In other words the original white Hamites were a rod of punishment and sustenance to their Shemite (Israelite) brethren.
2Kings 18:21 Now, behold, you trustest upon the staff of this bruised reed, even upon Egypt, on which if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt unto all that trust on him.
Isaiah 36:5 I say, sayest you, (but they are but vain words) I have counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost you trust, that you rebellest against Me?
29:7 When they took hold of you by your hand, you didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon you, you brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.
When the Assyrians were invading the Israelites turned to Egypt and Yahweh warned them not to. Same thing during the Babylonian invasion.
5 Then Pharaoh's army was come forth out of Egypt: and when the Chaldeans that besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them, they departed from Jerusalem.
7 Thus saith Yahweh, the God of Israel; Thus shall you say to the king of Judah, that sent you unto Me to enquire of Me; Behold, Pharaoh's army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt into their own land.
11 And it came to pass, that when the army of the Chaldeans was broken up from Jerusalem for fear of Pharaoh's army,
The Egyptians stalled the Babylonian's siege.
29:8 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon you (sword of Babel), and cut off man (adam) and beast out of you.
29:9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am Yahweh: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it.
29:10 Behold, therefore I am against you, and against your rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia (Cush).
Syene is the southern most border. Ethiopia is a reference to Mt Sinai, a reference to the ancient empire of Cush, which at one time began at the border land of Egypt and Arabia. This was the area where Moses went for his wife, dwelling in Arabia. She was not a nigress.
29:11 No foot of man (Adamites, white man) shall pass through it, nor foot of beast (other races) shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.
29:12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities that are laid waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.
The Hamitic (white) nation has been conquered and absorbed. Just as Yahweh has spoken.
Ancient mummies and artifacts reveal that the Egyptians were once caucasian.
29:13 Yet thus saith Yahweh GOD; At the end of forty years will I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered:
Isaiah 19:23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
Jeremiah 46:26 And I will deliver them into the hand of those that seek their lives, and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of his servants: and afterward it shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, saith Yahweh.
29:14 And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause them to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of their habitation; and they shall be there a base kingdom.
Whatever revival they had under Pharaoh Necho.
The Egyptians (original Hamites) didn't disappear until the time of Mohammed.
29:15 It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they shall no more rule over the nations.
29:16 And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but they shall know that I am Yahweh GOD.
2 That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at My mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3 Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.
Proclaimation against Tyre (Tsor)
Tyre was like the New York and London of the ancient world.
Ezekiel counts from the year Jehoiachin was taken into Babylonian captivity, so it is 587 BC
Ezekiel 26:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first day of the month, that the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
26:2 Son of man (adam), because that Tyrus hath said against Jerusalem, Aha, she is broken that was the gates of the people: she is turned unto me: I shall be replenished, now she is laid waste: (Is 23)
Speaking of the commercial advantage over a rival city. Tyre and Jerusalem were in competition, economic rivals.
Amos 1:9 Thus saith Yahweh; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:
26:3 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against you, O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against you, as the sea causeth his waves to come up.
26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock.
26:5 It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea: for I have spoken it, saith Yahweh GOD: and it shall become a spoil to the nations.
26:6 And her daughters which are in the field shall be slain by the sword; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
Daughters in the field are a reference to the villages and cities on the mainland.
26:7 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people.
26:8 He shall slay with the sword your daughters in the field: and he shall make a fort against you, and cast a mount (seige mound) against you, and lift up the buckler against you.
26:9 And he shall set engines of war against your walls (battering rams), and with his axes he shall break down your towers.
26:10 By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall cover you: your walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, and of the wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter into your gates, as men enter into a city wherein is made a breach.
26:11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all your streets: he shall slay your people by the sword, and your strong garrisons (mighty pillars) shall go down to the ground.
Mighty pillars, used for pagan worship.
26:12 And they shall make a spoil of your riches, and make a prey of your merchandise: and they shall break down your walls, and destroy your pleasant houses: and they shall lay your stones and your timber and your dust in the midst of the water.
26:13 And I will cause the noise of your songs to cease; and the sound of your harps shall be no more heard.
Isaiah 14:11 Your pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of your viols: the worm is spread under you, and the worms cover you.
Revelation 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
26:14 And I will make you like the top of a rock: you shalt be a place to spread nets upon; you shalt be (re)built no more: for I Yahweh have spoken it, saith Yahweh GOD.
26:15 Thus saith Yahweh GOD to Tyrus; Shall not the isles shake at the sound of your fall, when the wounded cry, when the slaughter is made in the midst of you?
26:16 Then all the princes of the sea (Tarshish) shall come down from their thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their broidered garments: they shall clothe themselves with trembling; they shall sit upon the ground, and shall tremble at every moment, and be astonished (appalled) at you.
Isaiah 23:8 Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the earth?
26:17 And they shall take up a lamentation for you, and say to you, How art you destroyed, that wast inhabited of seafaring men, the renowned city, which wast strong in the sea, she and her inhabitants, which cause their terror to be on all that haunt it!
Revelation 18:9 And the kings of the land, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
26:18 Now shall the isles tremble in the day of your fall; yea, the isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at your departure.
26:19 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; When I shall make you a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep upon you, and great waters shall cover you;
26:20 When I shall bring you down with them that descend into the pit (grave), with the people of old time, and shall set you in the low parts of the earth (land), in places desolate of old, with them that go down to the pit (grave), that you be not inhabited; and I shall set glory in the land of the living;
26:21 I will make you a terror, and you shalt be no more: though you be sought for, yet shalt you never be found again, saith Yahweh GOD.
Lamentation for Tyre (Tsor)
Ezekiel 27:1 The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying,
27:2 Now, you son of man (adam), take up a lamentation for Tyrus;
27:3 And say unto Tyrus, O you that art situate at the entry of the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; O Tyrus, you hast said, I am of perfect beauty.
Isaiah 23:3 And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river, is her revenue; and she is a mart (emporium, trader, merchandiser) of nations.
Sihor is a stream of Egypt. The reference is the darker mixed races, Canaanites, merchants.
27:4 Your (Tyre) borders are in the midst of the seas, your builders have perfected your beauty.
27:5 They have made all your ship boards of fir trees of Senir: they have taken cedars from Lebanon to make masts for you.
Senir is the town of Manasseh, east of the Jordan. 1 Chr 5:23.
Tyre is being compared to a ship.
27:6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made your oars; the company of the Ashurites have made your benches of ivory, brought out of the isles of Chittim.
Bashan is the land of Reuben, north of the plains of Moab.
The Israelite tribe of Ashur, they were ship builders, Phoenecians.
27:7 Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which you spreadest forth to be your sail; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was that which covered you.
Elishah is a son of Javan. Japethites. Elishah is possibly Carthage.
27:8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were your mariners: your wise men, O Tyrus, that were in you, were your pilots.
Zidon is an area dominated by Israelites, but Canaanites dwelt there as well.
Arvad is an island off the coast of Syria. Mentioned in Assyrian inscriptions.
27:9 The ancients of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in you your calkers (council)(repairers of leaks): all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in you to occupy your merchandise.
Gebal is a famous Phoenician city on the coast of Syria.
27:10 They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in your army, your men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in you; they set forth your comeliness.
27:11 The men of Arvad with your army were upon your walls round about, and the Gammadims (guards) were in your towers: they hanged their shields upon your walls round about; they have made your beauty perfect.
There are two Luds. Lud are the Lydians, of Shem (Gen 10). Which is in western Anatolia.
The Lud and Phut here are Hamites. Lud are northeast Africa.
Phut are the Libyans.
27:12 Tarshish was your merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in your fairs.
Tarshish was a district in which is now southern Spain. Tarshish was a son of Javan.
27:13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were your merchants: they traded the persons of men (adam)(white slave trade) and vessels of brass (bronze) in your market.
Javan are the Ionian Greeks. Japethites.
Tubal and Meshech (Moscow), also Japehtites. Some of the Slavic peoples of today.
27:14 They of the house of Togarmah traded in your fairs with horses and horsemen and mules.
Togarmah was a son of Gomer. Japethite.
27:15 The men of Dedan were your merchants; many isles were the merchandise of your hand: they brought you for a present horns of ivory and ebony (elephant tusks).
The men of Dedan are sons of Cush who mixed with Ishmaelites and Edomites. Hence merchants. Arab Jews.
27:16 Syria was your merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares of your making: they occupied in your fairs with emeralds, purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate.
Syria is a mistranslation. This is supposed to be Aram.
27:17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were your merchants: they traded in your market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag (possibly pastry), and honey, and oil, and balm (tseriy- unknown meaning).
Minnith is a city in Ammon, which the Israelites took in the days of Jephthah (Judges 11:33).
27:18 Damascus was your merchant in the multitude of the wares of your making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of Helbon, and white (tsachar- unknown type of sheep) wool.
27:19 Dan (Vedan- unknown location) also and Javan going to and fro occupied in your fairs: bright (ashoth- unknown meaning) iron, cassia (a spice), and calamus (aromatic reed), were in your market.
Danaan Greeks and Ionian Greeks.
27:20 Dedan was your merchant in precious clothes for chariots.
This Dedan are Keturites.
27:21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with you in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they your merchants.
Kedar was a son of Ishmael. A tribe of nomads.
27:22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah, they were your merchants: they occupied in your fairs with chief of all spices, and with all precious stones, and gold.
Sheba is southwest Arabia. Raamah, a grandson of Ham, a city in the southeast Arabia on the Persian Gulf.
27:23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur, and Chilmad, were your merchants.
Haran is the ancestral town of Abraham, far northern Assyria.
Eden was on the middle Euphrates.
Canneh is a place in Mesopotamia.
27:24 These were your merchants in all sorts of things, in blue clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords, and made of cedar, among your merchandise.
27:25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of you in your market: and you wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.
27:26 Your rowers have brought you into great waters: the east wind hath broken (wrecked) you in the midst of the seas. (Psa 48:7)
27:27 Your riches, and your fairs, your merchandise, your mariners, and your pilots, your calkers (council), and the occupiers of your merchandise, and all your men of war, that are in you, and in all your company which is in the midst of you, shall fall into the midst of the seas in the day of your ruin.
Proverbs 11:4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.
27:28 The suburbs (open land around a city) shall shake at the sound of the cry of your pilots (sailors).
27:29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots (sailors) of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand upon the land;
27:30 And shall cause their voice to be heard against you, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:
27:31 And they shall make themselves utterly bald for you, and gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for you with bitterness of heart and bitter wailing.
This language is identical to that of Revelation 18 and the vision of the future fall of Babylon. The global trade system we see here in the ancient world, just as today. We forget who we are, our purpose, and fall to the desires of Satan. Then destruction is emminent.
27:32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for you, and lament over you, saying, What city is like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the midst of the sea?
27:33 When your wares went forth out of the seas, you filledst many people; you didst enrich the kings of the earth (land) with the multitude of your riches and of your merchandise.
Revelation 18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
27:34 In the time when you shalt be broken (wrecked) by the seas in the depths of the waters your merchandise and all your company in the midst of you shall fall.
27:35 All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished (appalled) at you, and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled in their countenance.
27:36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at you; you shalt be a terror, and never shalt be any more. (Rev 18:11-19)
Proclaimation to the king of Tsor
Tyre's pride and ruin
Ezekiel 28:1 The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying,
28:2 Son of man (adam), say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because your heart is lifted up, and you hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet you art a man (adam), and not God, though you set your heart as the heart of God:
28:3 Behold, you art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from you:
The Septuagint: 3 art you wiser than Daniel? or have not the wise instructed you with their knowledge?
28:4 With your wisdom and with your understanding you hast gotten you riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into your treasures:
28:5 By your great wisdom and by your traffick (trade) hast you increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches:
Psalm 62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
Zechariah 9:3 And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets.
28:6 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you hast set your heart as the heart of God;
28:7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon you, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, and they shall defile your brightness.
28:8 They shall bring you down to the pit (grave), and you shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
28:9 Wilt you yet say before him that slayeth you, I am God? but you shalt be a man (adam), and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth you.
28:10 You shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith Yahweh GOD.
This prince of Tyre must have been circumcised as he was called an adam. Circumcision was strictly an Israelite ritual until around 125 BC when John Hyrcanus started circumcising Edomite Jews.
28:11 Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
28:12 Son of man (adam), take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; You sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
28:13 You hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of your tabrets and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you wast created.
The Septuagint starts as: 13 “You wast in the delight of the paradise of God;...”
The 'garden of God' is a metaphor for the children of Yahweh. Our race. We are a delight when we obey and remain pure and separate.
28:14 You art the anointed cherub that covereth (mimshach kerub sakak- unkown meaning); and I have set you so: you wast upon the holy mountain of God; you hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
The 'mountain of God' is also a reference to the children of Israel.
The Septuagint: 14 From the day that you wast created you wast with the cherub: I set you on the holy mount of God; you wast in the midst of the stones of fire.
28:15 You wast perfect in your ways from the day that you wast created, till iniquity was found in you.
Septuagint 15 You wast faultless in your days, from the day that you wast created, until iniquity was found in you.
28:16 By the multitude of your merchandise they have filled the midst of you with violence, and you hast sinned: therefore I will cast you as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy you, O covering cherub (sakak kerub- meaning unknown), from the midst of the stones of fire.
The they are those around the king of Tyre that have caused him to sin through ungodly trade and commerce. These were the merchants, who are Canaanites and Edomites.
'O covering cherub'. Cherubs protected the garden of God.
Septuagint: 16 Of the abundance of your merchandise you hast filled your storehouses with iniquity, and hast sinned: therefore you hast been cast down wounded from the mount of God, and the cherub has brought you out of the midst of the stones of fire.
Stones of fire, we are living stones.
28:17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty, you hast corrupted your wisdom (knowledge) by reason of your brightness (splendor): I will cast you to the ground, I will lay you before kings, that they may behold you.
Septuagint also has: “...because of the multitude of your sins I have cast you to the ground,...”
28:18 You hast defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your traffick (trade); therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of you, it shall devour you, and I will bring you to ashes upon the earth (ground) in the sight of all them that behold you.
Iniquity of traffick would be usury.
28:19 All they that know you among the people shall be astonished (appalled) at you: you shalt be a terror, and never shalt you be any more.
Now a proclaimation against Zidon
Ancient Phoenician city on Mediterranean coast north of Tyre.
28:20 Again the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
28:21 Son of man (adam), set your face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,
28:22 And say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against you, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of you: and they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
28:23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
28:24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am Yahweh GOD.
The next verse starts a future blessing to Israel. Yahweh is going to disperse them, and then this will happen.
28:25 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen (nations), then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to My servant Jacob.
28:26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am Yahweh their God. (Joel 13;4-8; Zec 9:1-2; Matt 11:21-22; Luke 10:13-14)
Chapter 29:1-16 follows chapter 25
Chapter 29:17-30:19 are the last words of Ezekiel, therefore at the end of the book.
Lamentation for Egypt
Ezekiel 30:20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, in the seventh day of the month, that the word of Yahweh came unto me (Ezekiel), saying,
30:21 Son of man (adam), I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a roller (bandage) to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.
His armies would be devastated and not a threat.
30:22 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong, and that which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand.
Psalm 37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but Yahweh upholdeth the righteous.
30:23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.
30:24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put My sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man.
30:25 But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall put My sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of Egypt.
30:26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them among the countries; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
Parable of the cedar
This is a look back at the Assyrians
Ezekiel 31:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
31:2 Son of man (adam), speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his multitude; Whom art you like in your greatness?
31:3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud (shade giving thicket), and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.
Lebanon is a mountain range. A white (snow capped) mountain range. Symbolic of a white nation kingdom. The Assyrians were white men, Shemites of the tribe of Asshur.
31:4 The waters made him great, the deep (refering to the branch of the Nile) set him up on high with her rivers running round about his plants, and sent out her little rivers unto all the trees of the field.
31:5 Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.
31:6 All the fowls of heaven (the sky) made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow (symbol of protection) dwelt all great nations.
The fowls and beasts of the field are references to the other races. Canaanites, Hittites, etc.
31:7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great (abundant) waters.
31:8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chesnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.
Again the garden of God is a reference to our race. Wherever the race of God dwelt. America is the garden of God. Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe are gardens of God.
This branch of our race, the Assyrians became a huge kingdom in their time. All the other Genesis 10 nations were not as great in number.
Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground made Yahweh God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
31:9 I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him.
31:10 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because you hast lifted up yourself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height;
31:11 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen (nations); he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness.
The Israelite Scythians played part in the fall of Assyria. In verse 11, heathen, correctly translated would be nations, and here a reference to the Adamic (white) nations of the Scythians.
The Assyrian empire was followed by the Babylonian empire.
31:12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone down from his shadow (protection), and have left him.
The Assyrian empire disintegrated through this coalition of different armies, the Medes, Scythians, and Babylonians.
The word 'strangers' is Zur H2114: to turn aside, profane, commit adultery, go away
These would be estranged Israelites. Our people raised up and educated in the ways other than His Way.
31:13 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven (sky) remain, and all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:
31:14 To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among the thick boughs, neither their trees (leaders) stand up in their height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth (land), in the midst of the children of men (Adamites), with them that go down to the pit (grave).
31:15 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods (streams) thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.
31:16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell (the grave) with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden (descendents of Noah), the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth.
31:17 They also went down into hell (sheol, the grave) with him unto them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm (supporters), that dwelt under his shadow (protection) in the midst of the heathen (nations).
The Septuagint: 17 For they went down to hell (the grave) with him among the slain with the sword; and his seed, even they that dwelt under his shadow, perished in the midst of their life.
31:18 To whom art you thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt you be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth (land): you shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith Yahweh GOD.
Chapter 33:21-33 should be here in the chronology of Ezekiel
This is a report of the coming of the final destruction of Jerusalem
Ezekiel 33:21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten. (2Ki 25:3-10; Jer 39:2-8, 52:4-14)
33:22 Now the hand of Yahweh was upon me in the evening, afore he that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more dumb.
33:23 Then the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
33:24 Son of man (adam), they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance.
33:25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall you possess the land?
Talking about the Judahites left in Jerusalem. They aren't worthy of their inheritance.
33:26 Ye stand upon your sword, you work abomination, and you defile every one his neighbour's (kinsman's) wife: and shall you possess the land?
33:27 Say you thus unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes (ruins) shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts (mountain-fastness) and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
33:28 For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through.
33:29 Then shall they know that I am Yahweh, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.
33:30 Also, you son of man (adam), the children of your people still are talking against you by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from Yahweh.
33:31 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.
36 Nevertheless they did flatter Him with their mouth, and they lied unto Him with their tongues.
37 For their heart was not right with Him, neither were they stedfast in His covenant.
33:32 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.
Luke 6:46 And why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
A lamentation for Pharaoh
Ezekiel 32:1 And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
32:2 Son of man (adam), take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him, You art like a young lion of the nations, and you art as a whale in the seas: and you camest forth with your rivers, and troubledst (stirring up) the waters with your feet, and fouledst their rivers.
32:3 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will therefore spread out My net over you with a company of many people (the Babylonians); and they shall bring you up in My net.
32:4 Then will I leave you upon the land, I will cast you forth upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the heaven (sky) to remain upon you, and I will fill (satisfy) the beasts of the whole earth (land) with you.
When the white Hamitic Egyptians were destroyed by the Babylonians, the other races moved in. The Canaanites, the Hittites, the blacks, this is why the word Arab means mixed, to grow dark.
32:5 And I will lay your flesh upon the mountains, and fill the valleys with your height (ramuth- unknown meaning).
32:6 I will also water with your blood the land wherein you swimmest (from your outflow), even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of you.
32:7 And when I shall put you out (put out like a lamp), I will cover the heaven (sky), and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
The stars often represent the children of Israel, it also would include their brethren and ancestors (Adamites). Indeed Ham (Egytians) who were once white, are now dark.
Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of the sky and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
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:
6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
6:13 And the stars of the sky fell unto the ground, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. (8:12)
32:8 All the bright lights of heaven (the sky) will I make dark over you, and set darkness upon your land, saith Yahweh GOD.
32:9 I will also vex (provoke to anger) the hearts of many people, when I shall bring your destruction among the nations, into the countries which you hast not known.
32:10 Yea, I will make many people amazed at you, and their kings shall be horribly afraid for you, when I shall brandish My sword before them; and they shall tremble at every moment, every man for his own life, in the day of your fall (overthrow).
32:11 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon you.
32:12 By the swords of the mighty will I cause your multitude to fall, the terrible (ruthless) of the nations, all of them: and they shall spoil the pomp (magnificence) of Egypt, and all the multitude thereof shall be destroyed.
32:13 I will destroy also all the beasts (livestock) thereof from beside the great waters; neither shall the foot of man (adam) trouble them any more, nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them.
32:14 Then will I make their waters deep (settle), and cause their rivers to run like (olive) oil, saith Yahweh GOD.
The waters will settle and become clear again.
32:15 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall smite all them that dwell therein, then shall they know that I am Yahweh.
The ethnicity of Hamitic white Egyptians were smitten. Just as Yahweh declared would happen.
32:16 This is the lamentation wherewith they shall lament her: the daughters of the nations shall lament her: they shall lament for her, even for Egypt, and for all her multitude, saith Yahweh GOD.
A few days later...
32:17 It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day of the month, that the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
32:18 Son of man (adam), wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them down, even her, and the daughters of the famous nations, unto the nether parts of the earth (land), with them that go down into the pit.
The Septuagint: 18 Son of Adam, lament over the strength of Egypt, for the nations shall bring down her daughters dead to the depth of the land, to them that go down to the pit.
32:19 Whom dost you pass in beauty? go down, and be you laid with the uncircumcised.
Herodotus the historian attested that the Egyptians practiced circumcision.
32:20 They shall fall in the midst of them that are slain by the sword: she is delivered to the sword: draw her and all her multitudes.
32:21 The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell (the grave) with them that help him: they are gone down, they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.
32:22 Asshur (Assyrians) is there and all her company: his graves are about him: all of them slain, fallen by the sword:
32:23 Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her company is round about her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which caused terror in the land of the living.
32:24 There is Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which are gone down uncircumcised into the nether parts of the earth (land), which caused their terror in the land of the living; yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit.
The core of the Persian empire were Elamites. They were uncircumcised Shemites. As were the Assyrians.
This is a long term prophecy that all of these nations are going to be destroyed.
32:25 They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain with all her multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword: though their terror was caused in the land of the living, yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit: he is put in the midst of them that be slain.
32:26 There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the living.
Meshech and Tubal would later settle Moscow and east Asia Minor, but here in 600 BC they were Japethites that allied with the Assyrians and a great number of them were destroyed.
32:27 And they shall not lie with the mighty that are fallen of the uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons of war: and they have laid their swords under their heads, but their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.
32:28 Yea, you shalt be broken in the midst of the uncircumcised, and shalt lie with them that are slain with the sword.
32:29 There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes, which with their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword: they shall lie with the uncircumcised, and with them that go down to the pit.
Even the Edomites were subdued by the Babylonians and paid tribute. They later helped, gladly, in the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians. The Edomites truly were NOT in bondage to any man, as they proudly declared to Christ. Unwittingly proving that they are NOT Israel.
32:30 There be the princes of the north, all of them, and all the Zidonians, which are gone down with the slain; with their terror they are ashamed of their might; and they lie uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword, and bear their shame with them that go down to the pit.
The Septuagint has: 30 “There are the princes of the north, even all the captains of Asshur, ...”
32:31 Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be comforted over all his multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army slain by the sword, saith Yahweh GOD.
32:32 For I have caused My terror in the land of the living: and he shall be laid in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that are slain with the sword, even Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith Yahweh GOD.
Ezekiel as a watchman
Ezekiel 33:1 Again the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
33:2 Son of man (adam), speak to the children of your people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
33:3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet (shophar), and warn the people;
33:4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
33:5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
Here, watchman is a preacher or prophet of God's word. It is his duty to give warnings of sin and it's consequences. Today, those of us that have true knowledge and understanding have this same duty, especially those in leadership positions and offices.
33:7 So you, O son of man (adam), I have set you a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore you shalt hear the word at My mouth, and warn them from Me.
The word from Ezekiel's mouth will be the sound of the shophar (trumpet) of warning.
33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, you shalt surely die; if you dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.
33:9 Nevertheless, if you warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you hast delivered your soul.
33:10 Therefore, O you son of man (adam), speak unto the house of Israel; Thus you speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away (waste away) in them, how should we then live?
33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn you, turn you from your evil ways; for why will you die, O house of Israel?
33:12 Therefore, you son of man (adam), say unto the children of your people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his (former) righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.
There is no such thing as 'once saved, always saved'. Righteousness is an ongoing practice.
33:14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, You shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
33:15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again (repaid) that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
Exodus 22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
2 (Septuagint) And if the thief be found in the breach made by himself and be smitten and die, there shall not be blood shed for him.
Today we just support our thieves in prison and sometimes we get sued if they hurt themselves while robbing us!
These deaths are referring to the second death.
Continue in iniquity until death, remain in sheol.
Continue in Yahweh's statutes until death, and live.
33:16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
33:17 Yet the children of your people say, The way of Yahweh is not equal (equitable): but as for them, their way is not equal (equitable).
33:18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
33:20 Yet you say, The way of Yahweh is not equal (equitable). O you house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.
Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father with His messengers; and then He shall reward every man according to his works.
Romans 2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
2Corinthians 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if His ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Revelation 2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and the grave delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
20:14 And death and the grave were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
John 14:15 If ye love Me, keep My commandments.
Verses 33:21-33 precede chapter 32.
The lost sheep
These are the same people here in the OT as those in the NT.
Lost in Hebrew is H6 abad: wander, lose oneself, be void, fail.
Lost in Greek is G622 apollumi: From G575 apo “off”, that is, away (from something near), in various senses (of place, time, or relation; literally or figuratively) and the base of G3639 olethros (ollumi) punishment: - destruction.; to destroy fully (reflexively to perish, or lose), literally or figuratively.
Scripture uses lost as: put away, divorced, cast off in punishment.
Only the children of Israel were divorced, cast off and put away in punishment for iniquity.
Only the children of Israel were bought back and redeemed.
Only the children of Israel are referred to as sheep, His flock.
Only the children of Israel were given the law, promises and covenants.
Christ came only for the lost sheep.
Matthew 15:24 But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Ezekiel 34:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
34:2 Son of man (adam), prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD unto the shepherds (the rulers, the false preachers); Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
34:3 Ye eat the fat, and you clothe you with the wool, you kill them that are fed: but you feed not the flock.
Isaiah 56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
34:4 The diseased have you not strengthened, neither have you healed that which was sick, neither have you bound up that which was broken, neither have you brought again that which was driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have you ruled them.
Zechariah 11:16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
Luke 15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
1Peter 5:3 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being examples to the flock.
34:5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
The 'beasts of the field' is a reference to the other races.
The other races have fed off of our society in every instance in history and now again here in America and the other white nations.
34:6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, My flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth (land), and none did search or seek after them.
34:7 Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of Yahweh;
34:8 As I live, saith Yahweh GOD, surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became meat to every beast of the field (alien nations), because there was no shepherd, neither did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not My flock;
34:9 Therefore, O you shepherds, hear the word of Yahweh;
34:10 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require My flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
34:11 For thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search My sheep, and seek them out.
Septuagint ends as: “... I will seek out My sheep, and will visit them.”
Matthew 15:24 But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
34:12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out My sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
34:13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
34:14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
Psalm 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
34:15 I will feed My flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith Yahweh GOD.
34:16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick (weak): but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
Isaiah 40:11 He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Micah 4:6 In that day, saith Yahweh, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;
Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
34:17 And as for you, O My flock, thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I judge between cattle (sheep) and cattle (sheep), between the rams and the he goats.
34:18 Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but you must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but you must foul the residue with your feet?
The Septuagint: 18 And is it not enough for you that you fed on the good pasture, that you trampled with your feet the remnant of your pasture? and that you drank the standing water, that you disturbed the residue with your feet?
Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
34:19 And as for My flock, they eat that which you have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which you have fouled with your feet.
Remember untempered mortar? (Chapter 13) The false preachers disturb the truth and the people drink the tainted water. They continue adding to the lies by spreading them.
34:20 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat (strong) cattle (sheep) and between the lean (weak) cattle (sheep).
34:21 Because you have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad;
Septuagint: 21 Ye did thrust with your sides and shoulders, and pushed with your horns, and you cruelly treated all the sick (weakened).
34:22 Therefore will I save My flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle (sheep) and cattle (sheep).
34:23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and He shall feed them, even My servant David; He shall feed them, and He shall be their shepherd.
David is a reference to Yahshua Christ. The root and the branch.
John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.
Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
34:24 And I Yahweh will be their God, and My servant David a prince among them; I Yahweh have spoken it.
Exodus 29:45 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.
34:25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.
When we follow the will of Yahweh, the other races will have to leave our land and society.
Leviticus 26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yahweh, as the waters cover the sea.
34:26 And I will make them and the places round about My hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. (Lev 26:4)
34:27 And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth (land) shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those (races) that served themselves (imposed tribute, usury) of them (us).
Psalm 85:12 Yea, Yahweh shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
34:28 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen (nations), neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid. (Jer 30:10)
There is no history of animals eating the people, this is talking about the beast nations, non-Adamic people, devouring our blessings and sustenance. What do you think the other races are doing to us here in America? Read Joel.
34:29 And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen (nations) any more.
This plant of renown in this ancient's future would be Christ. In today's time it would be true Christianity with knowledge and understanding of the Identity and Heritage of True Israel.
34:30 Thus shall they know that I Yahweh their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are My people, saith Yahweh GOD.
34:31 And you My flock, the flock of My pasture, are men (adam), and I am your God, saith Yahweh GOD.
Psalm 100:3 Know you that Yahweh He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Fame; celebrity; exalted reputation derived from the extensive praise of great achievements or accomplishments.
H8034 Renown shem pronounced shame
A primitive word (perhaps rather from H7760 to put (used in a great variety of applications, literally, figuratively, inferentially and elliptically): - appoint, bring, call [a name], change, charge, commit, consider, convey, determine, purpose, put (on),(cause to) set (on, up), shew, + stedfastly, take, X tell, + tread down, ([over-]) turn, X wholly, work. through the idea of definite and conspicuous position; compare H8064 meaning to be lofty; the sky (as aloft; the dual perhaps alluding to the visible arch in which the clouds move, as well as to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve): - air, X astrologer, heaven (-s).); an appellation, as a mark or memorial of individuality; by implication honor, authority, character: - + base, [in-] fame [-ous], name (-d), renown, report.
From the Septuagint: 29 And I will raise up for them a plant of peace, and they shall no more perish with hunger upon the land, and they shall no more bear the reproach of the nations.
This plant of renown (peace) is no doubt Yahshua Christ. When we are full with His righteousness, which we obtain through imitating His example, we do not hunger. We do not stand with the unrighteous and therefore separated from reproach.
The Way (true Christianity) indeed represents an arch as defined above. When Christ came, He showed us the example, the truth, the light, and THE WAY. Today, The Identity message is the truth re-emerging and proclaimed to those who have ears to hear.. This side of the arch. The scriptures tell of an awakening of His people in the last days. The true message was lost, distorted, perverted and split into over 3000 denominations. Now today the “churches” teach and proclaim this untempered mortar that the Jews are Israel, all the races came from Adam, a world wide flood, the rapture, “gospel of personal salvation”, proclaiming “I'm saved” by your own declaration, as if it's your choice, and that the covenants and promises are for everybody, and all you have to do is “ just believe”, and the worst deception of all, that Jesus is a Jew.
This was not planned but it so happens the next chapter is all about these facilitators of deception.
Proclaimation against Seir, the mountain of the Edomite Jews.
The name Seir is also a metaphor to describe the children of Esau wherever they go.
“Edom is in modern Jewry.” -The Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol.5, p.41
"Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew." (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).
Ezekiel 35:1 Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
35:2 Son of man (adam), set your face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it,
Deuteronomy 2:5 Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto Esau for a possession.
35:3 And say unto it, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, O mount Seir, I am against you, and I will stretch out Mine hand against you, and I will make you most desolate.
Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
35:4 I will lay your cities waste, and you shalt be desolate, and you shalt know that I am Yahweh.
35:5 Because you hast had a perpetual hatred (enmity), and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you (serpent) and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it (her descendants) shall bruise your head, and you (Jews) shalt bruise his (the children of Adam's, Christ's) heel.
They still do this today. Observe our politicians, leaders, directors, law makers, company heads. All sectors of our society. Medical, financial, agricultural, educational, media, Hollywood, everywhere. Most all are Jews and the rest are working for the Jews. They are the impostors of our heritage and this deception will not go unpunished.
35:6 Therefore, as I live, saith Yahweh GOD, I will prepare you unto blood(shed), and blood(shed) shall pursue you: since you hast not hated blood(shed), even blood(shed) shall pursue you.
Septuagint: 6 Therefore, as I live, saith Yahweh God, verily you hast sinned even to blood(shed), therefore blood(shed) shall pursue you.
Matthew 23:35 That upon you (serpent seed Jews) may come all the righteous blood shed upon the ground, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
35:7 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.
These are the Canaanite and Edomite Jews. The seed of the serpent.
35:8 And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in your hills, and in your valleys, and in all your rivers, shall they fall that are slain with the sword.
35:9 I will make you perpetual desolations, and your cities shall not return: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
Malachi 1:3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
35:10 Because you hast said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas Yahweh was there:
These two nations would be Israel and Judah.
35:11 Therefore, as I live, saith Yahweh GOD, I will even do according to your anger, and according to your envy which you hast used out of your hatred against them (Israel and Judah); and I will make Myself known among them, when I have judged you.
Matthew 7:2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.
James 2:13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
35:12 And you shalt know that I am Yahweh, and that I have heard all your blasphemies which you hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to consume.
The Edomites moved in when Judah was taken into Babylonian captivity.
This is how they later infiltrated and overtook the priesthood of Israel by the time of Christ. The Sadducees were all Edomites and the Pharisees were mostly all Edomite, save Nicodemus and a few others, possibly Gamaliel.
Psalm 9:16 Yahweh is known by the judgment which He executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.
35:13 Thus with your mouth you have boasted against Me, and have multiplied your words against Me: I have heard them.
The Jew's Bible the Talmud says that even God asks the advise of a Jew (Rabbi) before making a decision.
1Samuel 2:3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for Yahweh is a God of knowledge, and by Him actions are weighed.
35:14 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; When the whole earth (land) rejoiceth, I will make you desolate.
35:15 As you didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto you: you shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even all of it: and they shall know that I am Yahweh. (Isa 34:5-17, 63:1-6; Jer 49:7-22; Amos 1:11-12; Obadiah; Mal 1:2-5)
Prophecy to Israel
And a prophecy to the land
Ezekiel 36:1 Also, you son of man (adam), prophesy unto the mountains (leaders) of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of Yahweh:
36:2 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because the (hated) enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:
The ancient mountains, physical height of the mountains, not pagan worship places here.
36:3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that you might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen (nations), and you are taken up in the lips of talkers (in the speech of the tongue), and are an infamy (evil report) of the people:
The subject of gossip with a bad reputation.
36:4 Therefore, you mountains of Israel, hear the word of Yahweh GOD; Thus saith Yahweh GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen (nations) that are round about;
Psalm 79:4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
36:5 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Surely in the fire of My jealousy (ardour of anger) have I spoken against the residue of the heathen (nations), and against all Idumea (Edomites), 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.
The 'fire of My jealousy' is reference to Judgment Day when Yahshua returns.
Septuagint: 5 therefore, thus saith Yahweh; Verily in the fire of My wrath have I spoken against the rest of the nations, and against all Idumea (Edomites), because they have appropriated My land to themselves for a possession with joy, disregarding the lives of the inhabitants, to destroy it by plunder:
The Jews officially proclaimed that the land was their possession in 1948.
Deuteronomy 4:24 For Yahweh your God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
36:6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy (ardour of anger) and in My fury, because you have borne the shame of the heathen (nations):
Yahweh is making the land a promise that one day it will be cleansed of it's shame.
The land is still under a curse today, and will be until Judgment Day. When Christ returns and spills the blood of the Jews, then will all the righteous blood slain by the Jews from Abel to Zacharias be avenged. (A-Z, of course including Christ)
36:7 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; I have lifted up Mine hand (to swear an oath), Surely the heathen (nations) that are about you, they shall bear their shame.
36:8 But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to My people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.
The remnant of Judah would return to the land after captivity.
Referring also to the future migrations of the children of Israel into Europe and America.
36:9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you (the land), and you shall be tilled and sown:
36:10 And I will multiply men (adam) upon you (the land), all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes (ruins) shall be builded (rebuilt):
36:11 And I will multiply upon you (the land) man (adam) and beast (livestock); and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
36:12 Yea, I will cause men (adam) to walk upon you (the land), even My people Israel; and they shall possess you, and you shalt be their inheritance, and you shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.
Obadiah 1:17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their (Cain and Esau's) possessions.
After Judgment Day, we (Israelites) will posses even the lands that were once the Canaanites and Edomites.
36:13 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Because they say unto you, You land devourest up men (adam), and hast bereaved your nations;
36:14 Therefore you (the land) shalt devour men (adam) no more, neither bereave your nations any more, saith Yahweh GOD.
Numbers 13:32 And they (scouts) brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
Giants or Jew Bankers? Maybe both.
36:15 Neither will I cause men to hear in you the shame of the heathen (nations) any more, neither shalt you bear the reproach of the people any more, neither shalt you cause your nations to fall any more, saith Yahweh GOD.
In verse 15, heathen is incorrect. The reference is to the Genesis 10 nations. They, acting like the heathen have caused your nations (Israel and Judah) to fall. Israel and Judah dwelt the land being prophesied here in chapter 36.
36:16 Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
36:17 Son of man (adam), when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before Me as the uncleanness of a removed woman (menstruating).
25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) The fornication and wickedness of the ways of Cain and Esau.
28 That the land spue not you out also, when you defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
36:18 Wherefore I poured My fury upon them for the blood (child sacrifices) that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:
36:19 And I scattered them (house of Israel) among the heathen (nations), and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.
The nations at the time were Assyria, Media, and Persia.
36:20 And when they entered unto the heathen (nations), whither they went, they profaned My holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of Yahweh, and are gone forth out of His land.
Isaiah 52:5 Now therefore, what have I here, saith Yahweh, that My people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith Yahweh; and My name continually every day is blasphemed.
Romans 2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the nations through you, as it is written.
Calling God Lord is blasphemy. Lord is the title of Baal, Satan. The name of our God is YAHWEH.
36:21 But I had pity (compassion) for Mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen (nations), whither they went.
Even the pew warmers today profane Him by calling Him Lord. But they love their own pew!
36:22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for Mine holy name's sake, which you have profaned among the heathen (nations), whither you went.
Psalm 106:8 Nevertheless He saved (preserved) them for His name's sake, that He might make His mighty power to be known.
36:23 And I will sanctify My great name, which was profaned among the heathen (nations), which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen (nations) shall know that I am Yahweh, saith Yahweh GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen (nations), and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
Another dual prophecy. The Judahites returned to Jerusalem, the law, and proper worship after their captivity in Babel. They were again scattered and migrated into Europe and America after Christ died, which is why the dual part of this prophecy cannot be Palestine. As prophesied, there are no more Israelites living in the state of Israel, or the Middle East.
36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean (morally): from all your filthiness (ethical and religious uncleanness), and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
This happened here in America. We left pagan society, we left Catholic domination. We started new and under God.
36:26 A new (fresh) heart also will I give you, and a new (fresh) spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Jeremiah 32:39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear Me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:
36:27 And I will put My spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them.
36:28 And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be My people, and I will be your God. (2 Sam 7:10)
36:29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn (grain), and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shalt call his name YAHSHUA: for he shall deliver His people from their sins.
Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be preserved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
36:30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that you shall receive no more reproach (humiliation) of famine among the heathen (nations).
36:31 Then shall you remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
Leviticus 26:40 If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against Me, and that also they have walked contrary unto Me;
36:32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith Yahweh GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
Hate your old ways.
36:33 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes (ruins) shall be builded (rebuilt).
36:34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
36:35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced (fortified), and are inhabited.
36:36 Then the heathen (nations) that are left round about you shall know that I Yahweh build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I Yahweh have spoken it, and I will do it.
36:37 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
We must enquire of Yahweh.
36:38 As the holy (set apart) flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn (appointed) feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men (adam): and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
The vision of dry bones
The two sticks
Ezekiel 37:1 The hand of Yahweh was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of Yahweh, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
37:2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
37:3 And He said unto me, Son of man (adam), can these bones live? And I answered, O Yahweh GOD, You knowest.
4Maccabees 18:17 He used to verify Ezekiel, who said, Shall these dry bones live?
37:4 Again He said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O you dry bones, hear the word of Yahweh.
The dry bones are Israel. (Eunuch and dry tree of Isaiah 56:3)(Luke 23:31)
Yahweh is the moist (living) tree of life. His people who have not walked in His ways for many centuries are the dry trees.
37:5 Thus saith Yahweh GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live:
37:6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
These dry bones will be brought back to life.
This also describes our Israelite ancestors that have migrated into Europe that the gospel caught up to centuries later.
4Maccabees 18:16 He declared the proverbs of Solomon, who saith, He is a tree of life to all those who do His will.
37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone (each one to his joint).
37:8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews (tendons) and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
37:9 Then said He unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man (adam), and say to the wind, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
Slain metaphorically. Spiritually dead. Ignorant.
Psalm 104:30 You sendest forth Your spirit, they are created: and You renewest the face of the land.
37:10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
Revelation 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
37:11 Then He said unto me, Son of man (adam), these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
All twelve tribes of Jacob. They say our hope is perished, they are cut off, spent.
37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, O My people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. (Is 26:19)
This is not the resurrection. This is an awakening of the true knowledge and understanding of who we are and Whose we are.
37:13 And you shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves,
37:14 And shall put My spirit in you, and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall you know that I Yahweh have spoken it, and performed it, saith Yahweh.
The two sticks prophecy.
The unification of the the houses of Judah and Israel.
37:15 The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying,
37:16 Moreover, you son of man (adam), take you one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: (Num 17:2)
Judah represents Judah, Benjamin and Levi, the southern tribes of the house of Judah (Jerusalem).
Ephraim is being represented for Joseph, and representing the 10 northern tribes of the house of Israel (Samaria).
37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in your hand.
Both houses reconciled at the cross and the acceptance of the gospel over the centuries by the scattered “lost sheep” Israelites.
37:18 And when the children of your people shall speak unto you, saying, Wilt you not shew us what you meanest by these?
37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in Mine hand.
All 12 tribes regathered here in America and we built this nation under Yahweh God.
Zechariah 10:6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am Yahweh their God, and will hear them.
37:20 And the sticks whereon you writest shall be in your hand before their eyes.
37:21 And say unto them, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen (nations), whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
Isaiah 11:13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
Jeremiah 3:18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.
37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be My people, and I will be their God.
37:24 And David My servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in My judgments, and observe My statutes, and do them.
37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob My servant, wherein your (fore) fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and My servant David shall be their prince for ever.
David is a reference to Christ Yahshua who is a descendant of David.
37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
Psalm 89:3 I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn unto David My servant,
Isaiah 55:3 Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you (Israelites), even the sure mercies of David.
Jeremiah 32:40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them (Israelites), that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from Me.
37:27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Leviticus 26:11 And I will set My tabernacle among you (Israelites): and My soul shall not abhor you.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the most beloved of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
37:28 And the heathen (nations) shall know that I Yahweh do sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Clearly this book is for us, true Israel. Yahweh's exclusivity is undeniable.
It's the “churches” that want to include all the other races, and that doctrine is anti-Christ.
Prophecy against Gog
In the 8th and 6th century BC when the children of Israel were taken into captivity by the Assyrians and the Babylonians, the Canaanite and Edomite Jews moved into the land and assumed our identity.
Today we are again being dispossessed by this same seedline. Our entire society is run by Jews.
As our preachers of the cold war era believed that Gog and Magog were Russia and China, they were mistaken.
The emperors excoriated the Jews from Christian society at the time of the early church. The time of Theodosius I & II, Justinian and Constantine.
This process took a couple hundred years to culminate.
In the 1500's, the Demedicis infiltrated the Catholic church and got themselves elected popes. They were bankers and pharmacists and they lifted a lot of the restrictions on the Jews.
As a result, the Jews began to crawl out of the ghettos and a thousand years later by the French Revolution they gained full citizenship with the people of Europe. Immediately the Jews became the bankers of the world and Mystery Babylon, the eighth beast begins it's takeover.
The 1000 years. Starting with the enlightenment and ending with the French Revolution. Summarizes Ez ch 38-39
Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan (the Jews) shall be loosed out of his prison (edicts, ghettos),
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.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the land, and compassed the camp of the saints (true Israel) about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of the sky, and devoured them.
10 And the devil (False Accuser) that deceived them (true Israel) 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.
The Jews lost all political power as Christianity became the official religion, starting with Constantine.
Revelation 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness (Europe), into her place, where she is nourished (fed the gospel) for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
1260 years the children of Israel wandered and settled Europe and eventually America, culminating with the birth of our nation in 1776.
Gog are the people of the land Magog. Gog are the Japethite/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 destroys them.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you (Satan) and the woman (Eve), and between your (Satan's) seed (Cain, Esau, the Jews) and her seed (Abel, Seth,Christ, the white race); it shall bruise your (Satan's) head, and you shalt bruise his (our) heel.
Prophecy against Gog
Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
38:2 Son of man (adam), set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
The Septuagint has: “...Rhos, prince of Mesoch and Thobel,...”, where the KJV translated chief (a title) instead of a name.
There was a Germanic tribe called the Rus, who ruled over the Slavic tribes of Meshech and Tubal (Japethites). The Czars of Russia were Germanic, from the house of David.
Revelation 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.
38:3 And say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief (Rhos) prince of Meshech and Tubal:
38:4 And I will turn you back, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
The Bolshevic Jews assassinated the Russian czars and usurped control of Russia.
2Kings 19:28 Because your rage against Me and your tumult is come up into Mine ears, therefore I will put My hook in your nose, and My bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way by which you camest.
38:5 Persia (Elam), Ethiopia (Cush), and Libya (Phut) with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
38:6 Gomer (Japethites), and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (son of Gomer) of the north quarters, and all his bands (army): and many people with you.
These nations represent the entire Arab world, and they are allied with the Jews. They use the Arabs against true Israel, us.
38:7 Be you prepared, and prepare for yourself, you, and all your company that are assembled unto you, and be you a guard unto them.
38:8 After many days you shalt be visited (mustered): in the latter years you shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
The last war on our soil was the War of Northern aggression (Jew agitated civil war).
The many people are the 12 tribes of Jacob re-united.
America was a wilderness before we settled it. And we dwell safely.
38:9 You shalt ascend and come like a storm, you shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your bands, and many people with you.
When we started letting the Jew into our society in the 1800's, just like Benjamin Franklin and others stated, they would be in full control within 200 years. They own our financial system with their usury and Federal Reserve Bank, taxes and regulations. They own our educational institutions, colleges and schools. Medical. Media. What don't they own?
38:10 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into your mind, and you shalt think an evil thought:
38:11 And you shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn your hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle (livestock) and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. (Jer 49:31)
The evil thought must be the destruction of our race through acceptance of the International Jew and their ideas: integration and immigration of the other races into our lands.
38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto you, Art you come to take a spoil? hast you gathered your company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle (livestock) and goods, to take a great spoil?
Sheba, Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish. These would represent the Mediterranean Arab Jews today. These nations were white at their origin.
FDR gave all our gold to the Jews.
38:14 Therefore, son of man (adam), prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; In that day when My people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt you not know it?
38:15 And you shalt come from your place out of the north parts, you, and many people with you, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
These would be the Arab and Turkish invasions starting in the 600's AD. Mohammadism.
38:16 And you shalt come up against My people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring you against My land (people, Israel nations), that the heathen (nations) may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in you, O Gog, before their eyes.
38:17 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Art you he of whom I have spoken in old time by My servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring you against them?
The 'old time' (ancient) enemy of Israel are the Canaanite and Edomite Jews. The tares, the briers and thorns.
Leviathan is referred to as Satan. The dragon. It is a symbol of Babylon.
1 In that day Yahweh with His sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
2 In that day sing you unto her, A vineyard of red wine.
3 I Yahweh do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.
4 Fury is not in me: who would set the briers and thorns against me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together.
Septuagint: 2 In that day there shall be a fair vineyard, and a desire to commence a song concerning it.
3 I am a strong city, a city in a siege: in vain shall I water it; for it shall be taken by night, and by day the wall shall fall.
4 There is no woman that has not taken hold of it; who will set me to watch stubble in the field? because of this enemy I have set her aside; therefore on this account Yahweh has done all that He appointed.
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.
38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven (sky), and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth (ground), and all the men (adam) that are upon the face of the earth (land), shall shake at My presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. (Hos 4:3)
38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all My mountains, saith Yahweh GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
The Jews have agitated war upon the white nations against each other. Kinsmen against kinsmen. Then the Jews move in and rebuild according to their lusts. And we allow it.
38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands (armies), and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
Isaiah 66:16 For by fire and by His sword will Yahweh plead with all flesh: and the slain of Yahweh shall be many.
Jeremiah 25:31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the land; for Yahweh hath a controversy with the nations, He will plead with all flesh; He will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith Yahweh.
38:23 Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
This is just another explanation of the prophecy against Gog
Ezekiel 39:1 Therefore, you son of man (adam), prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief (Rhos) prince of Meshech and Tubal:
39:2 And I will turn you back, and leave but the sixth part of you, and will cause you to come up from the north parts, and will bring you upon the mountains of Israel:
39:3 And I will smite your bow out of your left hand, and will cause your arrows to fall out of your right hand.
39:4 You shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, you, and all your bands, and the people that is with you: I will give you unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
This would be the wedding feast.
3Maccabees 6:34 Those who had marked them out as for death and for carrion, and had registered them with joy, howled aloud, and were clothed with shame, and had the fire of their rage ingloriously put out.
Revelation 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
39:5 You shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith Yahweh GOD.
39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
Amos 1:4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael (Yahweh has seen), which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad (idols and kings of Edom).
Revelation 20:9 And they (Gog) went up on the breadth of the land, and compassed the camp of the saints (true Israel) about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of the sky, and devoured them.
39:7 So will I make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let them pollute My holy name any more: and the heathen (nations) shall know that I am Yahweh, the Holy One in Israel.
39:8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith Yahweh GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
Revelation 16:17 And the seventh messenger poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of righteousness, from the throne, saying, It is done.
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.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
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.
39:9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
39:10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith Yahweh GOD.
39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog (multitude of Gog).
39:12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
22 And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and you hang him on a tree:
23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but you shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that your land be not defiled, which Yahweh your God giveth you for an inheritance.
39:13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown (a name) the day that I shall be glorified, saith Yahweh GOD.
39:14 And they shall sever out (set apart) men of continual employment (continuity- men searching for unfound corpses), passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth (land), to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
The Septuagint: 14 And they shall appoint men continually to go over the land, to bury them that have been left on the face of the earth, to cleanse it after the space of seven months, and they shall seek them out.
39:15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's (adam's) bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
39:16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah (multitude). Thus shall they cleanse the land.
39:17 And, you son of man (adam), thus saith Yahweh GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to My sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh, and drink blood.
The birds and beasts will have a feast on Wedding (Judgment) Day.
Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him (Yahshua): for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife (true Israel) hath made herself ready (knowledge and understanding).
5 For afore (before) the harvest (reaping), when the bud is perfect (completely formed), and the sour grape is ripening in the (it's) flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.
6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the land: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the land shall winter upon them.
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 (the fowls and beasts of the earth).
Revelation 19:17 And I saw a divine messenger standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of sky, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
39:18 Ye (fowls, beasts) shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth (land), of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
39:19 And you shall eat fat till you be full, and drink blood till you be drunken, of My sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
Even the animals of the world will be avenged.
39:20 Thus you shall be filled at My table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith Yahweh GOD.
Psalm 76:6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
Chariot and horse are implements of war. When evil is exterminated there will be peace.
39:21 And I will set My glory among the heathen (nations), and all the heathen (nations) shall see My judgment that I have executed, and My hand that I have laid upon them.
39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am Yahweh their God from that day and forward.
39:23 And the heathen (nations) shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against Me, therefore hid I My face from them, and gave them into the hand of their (hated) enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
Fell includes, by the sword as well as prostrate oneself to the enemy (surrender).
39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid My face from them.
39:25 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity (restore the captives) of Jacob, and have mercy (compassion) upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous (zealous) for My holy name;
39:26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed (commited) against Me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
6 And I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts (the other races) out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
39:27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their (hated) enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
39:28 Then shall they know that I am Yahweh their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen (nations): but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
39:29 Neither will I hide My face any more from them: for I have poured out My spirit upon the house of Israel, saith Yahweh GOD.
Isaiah 54:8 In a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on you, saith Yahweh your Redeemer.
Ezekiel's vision of the temple.
The sacred cubit (22'') is used in the following chapters.
Ezekiel 40:1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of Yahweh was upon me, and brought me thither.
Remember, Ezekiel is with the captives in Babel.
40:2 In the visions of God brought He me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame (structure) of a city on the south.
Revelation 21:10 And He carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of the sky from God,
40:3 And He brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass (bronze), with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and He stood in the gate.
Revelation 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the messenger stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
40:4 And the man said unto me, Son of man (adam), behold with your eyes, and hear with your ears, and set your heart (mind) upon all that I shall shew you; for to the intent that I might shew them unto you art you brought hither: declare all that you seest to the house of Israel.
40:5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and an hand breadth: so He measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and the height, one reed.
This reed is about 11 feet long.
40:6 Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and went up the stairs thereof, and measured the threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad; and the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad.
40:7 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad; and between the little chambers were five cubits (9'2''); and the threshold of the gate by the porch of the gate within was one reed.
40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.
40:9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits (14'8''); and the posts thereof, two cubits (3'6''); and the porch of the gate was inward.
40:10 And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on this side, and three on that side; they three were of one measure: and the posts had one measure on this side and on that side.
40:11 And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten cubits (18'2''); and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits (23'10'').
40:12 The space (barriers) also before the little chambers was one cubit (22'') on this side, and the space (barriers) was one cubit (22'') on that side: and the little chambers were six cubits (11') on this side, and six cubits (11') on that side.
40:13 He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber to the roof of another: the breadth was five and twenty cubits (45'10''), door against door.
40:14 He made also posts of threescore cubits (110'), even unto the post of the court round about the gate.
40:15 And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of the porch of the inner gate were fifty cubits (91'8'').
40:16 And there were narrow windows to the little chambers, and to their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the arches: and windows were round about inward: and upon each post were palm trees (figures- decorative carving).
1Kings 6:4 And for the house he (Solomon) made windows of narrow lights.
40:17 Then brought He me into the outward court, and, lo, there were chambers, and a pavement made for the court round about: thirty chambers were upon the pavement.
40:18 And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the length of the gates was the lower pavement.
40:19 Then He measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower gate unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred cubits (183'4'') eastward and northward.
40:20 And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the north, He measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof.
40:21 And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and three on that side; and the posts thereof and the arches thereof were after the measure of the first gate: the length thereof was fifty cubits (91'8''), and the breadth five and twenty cubits (45'10'').
40:22 And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees, were after the measure of the gate that looketh toward the east; and they went up unto it by seven steps; and the arches thereof were before them.
40:23 And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate toward the north, and toward the east; and He measured from gate to gate an hundred cubits (183'4'').
40:24 After that He brought me toward the south, and behold a gate toward the south: and He measured the posts thereof and the arches thereof according to these measures.
40:25 And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about, like those windows: the length was fifty cubits (91'8''), and the breadth five and twenty cubits (45'10'').
40:26 And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches thereof were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this side, and another on that side, upon the posts thereof.
40:27 And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south: and He measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred cubits (183'4'').
40:28 And He brought me to the inner court by the south gate: and He measured the south gate according to these measures;
40:29 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, according to these measures: and there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long (91'8''), and five and twenty cubits broad (45'10'').
40:30 And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long (45'10''), and five cubits (9'2'') broad.
40:31 And the arches thereof were toward the utter (far) court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had eight steps.
40:32 And He brought me into the inner court toward the east: and He measured the gate according to these measures.
40:33 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, were according to these measures: and there were windows therein and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long (91'8''), and five and twenty cubits (45'10'') broad.
40:34 And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps.
40:35 And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according to these measures;
40:36 The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was fifty cubits (91'8''), and the breadth five and twenty cubits (45'10'').
40:37 And the posts thereof were toward the utter court; and palm trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps.
40:38 And the chambers and the entries thereof were by the posts of the gates, where they washed the burnt offering.
40:39 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering and the sin offering and the trespass offering.
40:40 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables.
40:41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices.
40:42 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt offering, of a cubit and an half long (2'8''), and a cubit and an half (2'8'') broad, and one cubit (22'') high: whereupon also they laid the instruments (knives) wherewith they slew the burnt offering and the sacrifice.
40:43 And within were hooks (shaphath- meaning unknown, likely borders on the sides of the tables), an hand broad, fastened round about: and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.
40:44 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers in the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate; and their prospect was toward the south: one at the side of the east gate having the prospect toward the north.
Septuagint has: “...one behind the gate looking to the north, turning southward, and one behind the southern gate, but which looks to the north. Likely the correct translation is southern.
40:45 And He said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward the south, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house.
Leviticus 8:35 Therefore shall you abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of Yahweh, that you die not: for so I am commanded.
40:46 And the chamber whose prospect is toward the north is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the sons of Zadok (the high priest, son of Ahitub of the house of Eleazar the son of Aaron) among the sons of Levi, which come near to Yahweh to minister unto Him.
Numbers 18:5 And you (sons of Aaron) shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel.
40:47 So He measured the court, an hundred cubits (183'4'') long, and an hundred cubits (183'4'') broad, foursquare; and the altar that was before the house.
40:48 And He brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each post of the porch, five cubits (9'2'') on this side, and five cubits (9'2'') on that side: and the breadth of the gate was three cubits (5'6'') on this side, and three cubits on that side.
40:49 The length of the porch was twenty cubits (36'8''), and the breadth eleven cubits (20'2''); and he brought me by the steps whereby they went up to it: and there were pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side.
1Kings 6:3 And the porch before the temple of the house, twenty cubits was the length thereof, according to the breadth of the house; and ten cubits was the breadth thereof before the house.
So it appears as Ezekiel is receiving instructions or visions of the rebuilding of the temple, which happened after Babylonian captivity.
Temple and it's walls
Ezekiel 41:1 Afterward He brought me to the (hall of the) temple, and measured the posts, six cubits (11') broad on the one side, and six cubits (11') broad on the other side, which was the breadth of the tabernacle.
41:2 And the breadth of the door was ten cubits (18'2''); and the sides of the door were five cubits (9'2'') on the one side, and five cubits (9'2'') on the other side: and He measured the length thereof, forty cubits (73'4''): and the breadth, twenty cubits (36'8'').
41:3 Then went He inward, and measured the post of the door, two cubits (3'8''); and the door, six cubits (11'); and the breadth of the door, seven cubits (12'10'').
41:4 So He measured the length thereof, twenty cubits (36'8''); and the breadth, twenty cubits (36'8''), before the temple: and He said unto me, This is the most holy place.
1Kings 6:20 And the oracle in the forepart was twenty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in breadth, and twenty cubits in the height thereof: and he overlaid it with pure gold; and so covered the altar which was of cedar. (2 Chr 3:8)
41:5 After He measured the wall of the house, six cubits (11'); and the breadth of every side chamber, four cubits (7'4''), round about the house on every side.
41:6 And the side chambers were three, one over another, and thirty in order; and they entered into the wall which was of the house for the side chambers round about, that they might have hold, but they had not hold in the wall of the house.
5 And against the wall of the house he built chambers round about, against the walls of the house round about, both of the temple and of the oracle: and he made chambers round about:
6 The nethermost chamber was five cubits broad, and the middle was six cubits broad, and the third was seven cubits broad: for without in the wall of the house he made narrowed rests round about, that the beams should not be fastened in the walls of the house.
41:7 And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst.
41:8 I saw also the height of the house round about: the foundations of the side chambers were a full reed of six great cubits (11' thick).
41:9 The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber without, was five cubits (9'2''): and that which was left was the place of the side chambers that were within.
41:10 And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits (36'8'') round about the house on every side.
41:11 And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits (9'2'') round about.
41:12 Now the building that was before the separate place at the end toward the west was seventy cubits (128'4'') broad; and the wall of the building was five cubits (9'2'') thick round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits (165').
41:13 So He measured the house, an hundred cubits (183'4'') long; and the separate place, and the building, with the walls thereof, an hundred cubits (183'4'') long;
41:14 Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate place toward the east, an hundred cubits (183'4'').
41:15 And he measured the length of the building over against the separate place which was behind it, and the galleries thereof on the one side and on the other side, an hundred cubits (183'4''), with the inner temple, and the porches of the court;
41:16 The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round about on their three stories, over against the door, cieled (shachiyph- unknown meaning) with wood round about, and from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were covered;
41:17 To that above the door, even unto the inner house, and without, and by all the wall round about within and without, by measure.
41:18 And it was made with cherubims and palm trees, so that a palm tree was between a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had two faces;
41:19 So that the face of a man (Reuben) was toward the palm tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion (Judah) toward the palm tree on the other side: it was made through all the house round about.
41:20 From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palm trees made, and on the wall of the temple.
41:21 The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the other.
41:22 The altar of wood was three cubits (55') high, and the length thereof two cubits (3'8''); and the corners thereof, and the length thereof, and the walls thereof, were of wood: and He said unto me, This is the table that is before Yahweh.
41:23 And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.
41:24 And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves; two leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the other door.
41:25 And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubims and palm trees, like as were made upon the walls; and there were thick (ab- unknown meaning) planks upon the face of the porch without.
41:26 And there were narrow windows and palm trees on the one side and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the side chambers of the house, and thick (ab- unknown meaning) planks.
The priest's chambers
Ezekiel 42:1 Then He brought me forth into the utter (far) court, the way toward the north: and He brought me into the chamber that was over against the separate place, and which was before the building toward the north.
42:2 Before the length of an hundred cubits (183'4'') was the north door, and the breadth was fifty cubits (91'8'').
42:3 Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and over against the pavement which was for the utter court, was gallery against gallery in three stories.
42:4 And before the chambers was a walk of ten cubits (18'2'') breadth inward, a way of one cubit (22''); and their doors toward the north.
42:5 Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.
42:6 For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the pillars of the courts: therefore the building was straitened more than the lowest and the middlemost from the ground.
42:7 And the wall that was without over against the chambers, toward the utter court on the forepart of the chambers, the length thereof was fifty cubits (91'8'').
42:8 For the length of the chambers that were in the utter court was fifty cubits (91'8''): and, lo, before the temple were an hundred cubits (183'4'').
42:9 And from under these chambers was the entry on the east side, as one goeth into them from the utter court.
42:10 The chambers were in the thickness of the wall of the court toward the east, over against the separate place, and over against the building.
42:11 And the way before them was like the appearance of the chambers which were toward the north, as long as they, and as broad as they: and all their goings out were both according to their fashions, and according to their doors.
42:12 And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward the south was a door in the head of the way, even the way directly before the wall toward the east, as one entereth into them.
42:13 Then said He unto me, The north chambers and the south chambers, which are before the separate place, they be holy chambers, where the priests that approach unto Yahweh shall eat the most holy things: there shall they lay the most holy things, and the meat (grain) offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering; for the place is holy.
42:14 When the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of the holy place into the utter court, but there they shall lay their garments wherein they minister; for they are holy; and shall put on other garments, and shall approach to those things which are for the people.
42:15 Now when He had made an end of measuring the inner house, He brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it round about.
42:16 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds (5500'), with the measuring reed round about.
42:17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.
42:18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed.
42:19 He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
42:20 He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about, five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a separation (distinction) between the sanctuary (holy) and the profane place (common).
The holy was for the priests and the common was for the unconsecrated population (the regular folks).
These visions are dual prophecies and instructions. The near future of Ezekiel regarding the rebuilding of Jerusalem after captivity. And the model of the New Jerusalem after Judgment Day. We must understand that latter day visions are given in ways that the prophets could understand, for the illustration of heavenly Jerusalem would be indescribable.
The glory of Yahweh
Ezekiel 43:1 Afterward He brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east:
43:2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and His voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth (land) shined with His glory.
This must be describing the return of Yahshua Christ.
Revelation 1:15 And His feet like unto fine bronze, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.
43:3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.
43:4 And the glory of Yahweh came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.
43:5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of Yahweh filled the house.
43:6 And I heard Him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me.
43:7 And He (Yahweh) said unto me, Son of man (adam), the place of My throne, and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and My holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom (infidelity, idolatry), nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
Psalm 99:1 Yahweh reigns; --let the people rage; it is He that sits upon the cherubs, let the earth be moved.
43:8 In their setting of their threshold by My thresholds, and their post by My posts, and the wall between Me and them, they have even defiled My holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have consumed (destroyed) them in Mine anger.
They were doing pagan worship right next to the temple!
43:9 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from Me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever.
The entire reason and experience as a people these past 3000 years. Man kings and whoredom. Idolatry, fornication, improper foreign relations.
43:10 You son of man (adam), shew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.
43:11 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and do them.
Septuagint: 11 And they shall bear their punishment for all the things that they have done: and you shalt describe the house, and its entrances, and the plan thereof, and all its ordinances, and you shalt make known to them all the regulations of it, and describe them before them: and they shall keep all My commandments, and all My ordinances, and do them.
43:12 This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit (border) thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.
Yahweh chose the Israelites out of the race of Adam to lead, to be the government. The 'city on the hill'.
Matthew 5:14 Ye (children of Israel) are the light of the world (society). A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
43:13 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about shall be a span (a spread out hand, apprx 9''): and this shall be the higher place of the altar.
43:14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle (ledge) shall be two cubits (3'8''), and the breadth one cubit (22''); and from the lesser settle (ledge) even to the greater settle (ledge) shall be four cubits (7'4''), and the breadth one cubit (22'').
43:15 So the altar shall be four cubits (7'4''); and from the altar and upward shall be four horns.
43:16 And the altar shall be twelve cubits (22') long, twelve broad, square in the four squares thereof.
43:17 And the settle shall be fourteen cubits (25'8'') long and fourteen broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it shall be half a cubit (11''); and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit (22'') about; and his stairs shall look toward the east. (Exo 27:1-2; 2Chr 4:1)
43:18 And He said unto me, Son of man (adam), thus saith Yahweh GOD; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.
43:19 And you shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the seed of Zadok, which approach unto Me, to minister unto Me, saith Yahweh GOD, a young bullock for a sin offering. (Ex 29:10, Lev 8:14)
43:20 And you shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle (ledge), and upon the border round about: thus shalt you cleanse and purge it.
43:21 You shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.
43:22 And on the second day you shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they did cleanse it with the bullock.
43:23 When you hast made an end of cleansing it, you shalt offer a young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.
43:24 And you shalt offer them before Yahweh, and the priests shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering unto Yahweh.
Leviticus 2:13 And every oblation of your grain offering shalt you season with salt; neither shalt you suffer the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your grain offering: with all your offerings you shalt offer salt.
Salt would represent sincerity.
43:25 Seven days shalt you prepare every day a goat for a sin offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock, without blemish.
Exodus 29:35 And thus shalt you do unto Aaron, and to his sons (Levites), according to all things which I have commanded you: seven days shalt you consecrate them.
Leviticus 8:33 And you shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.
43:26 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they shall consecrate themselves.
43:27 And when these days are expired, it shall be, that upon the eighth day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you, saith Yahweh GOD. (Ex 29:35-37)
This shows the need to follow the law. Repentance and conformity to the law is necessary.
The “churches” accept everybody. Yahweh doesn't accept sinners.
Leviticus 9:1 And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;
23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of Yahweh appeared unto all the people.
After 7 days of purification. After Yahweh accepted acknowledgment, atonement of sin, and conformity to His Ways.
1Maccabees 4:52 Now on the five and twentieth day of the ninth month, which is called the month Casleu, in the hundred forty and eighth year, they rose up betimes in the morning,
4:53 And offered sacrifice according to the law upon the new altar of burnt offerings, which they had made.
4:54 Look, at what time and what day the heathen had profaned it, even in that was it dedicated with songs, and citherns, and harps, and cymbals.
4:55 Then all the people fell upon their faces, worshipping and praising the God of righteousness, who had given them good success.
4:56 And so they kept the dedication of the altar eight days and offered burnt offerings with gladness, and sacrificed the sacrifice of deliverance and praise.
The use of the temple
Ezekiel 44:1 Then He brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.
44:2 Then said Yahweh unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because Yahweh, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut.
44:3 It is for the Prince; the Prince, He shall sit in it to eat bread before Yahweh; He shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
44:4 Then brought He me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of Yahweh filled the house of Yahweh: and I fell upon my face.
44:5 And Yahweh said unto me, Son of man (adam), mark well, and behold with your eyes, and hear with your ears all that I say unto you concerning all the ordinances of the house of Yahweh, and all the laws thereof; and mark well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the sanctuary.
44:6 And you shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of Israel, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; O you house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your abominations,
1Peter 4:3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought (engaged in) the will of the nations, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
44:7 In that you have brought into My sanctuary strangers (racial aliens), uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in My sanctuary, to pollute it, even My house, when you offer My bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken My covenant because of all your abominations.
Deuteronomy 23:2 A bastard (racial alien) shall not enter into the congregation of Yahweh; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of Yahweh. (Matt 10:16, 15:24)
44:8 And you have not kept the charge of Mine holy things: but you have set keepers of My charge in My sanctuary for yourselves.
Leviticus 22:2 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons (Levite priests), that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane not My holy name in those things which they hallow unto Me: I am Yahweh.
44:9 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; No stranger (racial alien), uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into My sanctuary, of any stranger (racial alien) that is among the children of Israel.
The Septuagint: 9 Therefore thus saith Yahweh God; No alien, uncircumcised in heart or uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into My sanctuary, of all the children of strangers that are in the midst of the house of Israel.
The “churches” teach that anyone who believes can participate in the promises and covenants.
The scripture teaches that only the children of Israel, whom all the promises and covenants were made to, can enter His sanctuary. This is the heritage of the race of Adam, not the world.
44:10 And the Levites that are gone away far from Me, when Israel went astray, which went astray away from Me after their idols; they shall even bear their iniquity. (2 Ki 23:8)
44:11 Yet they shall be ministers in My sanctuary, having charge at the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister unto them. (1 Chr 26:1)
All the errant priests will be punished, but will once again assume their proper duties.
44:12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I lifted up Mine hand against them, saith Yahweh GOD, and they shall bear their iniquity.
Isaiah 9:16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
Malachi 2:8 But you are departed out of the way; you have caused many to stumble at the law; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith Yahweh of hosts.
Psalm 106:26 Therefore He lifted up His hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:
44:13 And they shall not come near unto Me, to do the office of a priest unto Me, nor to come near to any of My holy things, in the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame (ignominy), and their abominations which they have committed.
Total humilitation. The priests had helped Israel with their idol worship and will be punished.
2Kings 23:9 Nevertheless the priests of the high places came not up to the altar of Yahweh in Jerusalem, but they did eat of the unleavened bread among their brethren.
44:14 But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for all the service thereof, and for all that shall be done therein.
Numbers 18:4 And they shall be joined unto you, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.
44:15 But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of My sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near to Me to minister unto Me, and they shall stand before Me to offer unto Me the fat and the blood, saith Yahweh GOD:
1Samuel 2:35 And I will raise Me up a faithful priest (Christ), that shall do according to that which is in Mine heart and in My mind: and I will build Him a sure house; and He shall walk before Mine anointed for ever.
44:16 They (Levites) shall enter into My sanctuary, and they shall come near to My table, to minister unto Me, and they shall keep My charge.
44:17 And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and no wool shall come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner court, and within.
44:18 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing that causeth sweat. (Ex 28:39-43; Lev 16:4)
Because the linen was non-conductive. The ark of the covenant was a giant capacitor and it would fry them.
44:19 And when they go forth into the utter court, even into the utter court to the people, they shall put off their garments wherein they ministered, and lay them in the holy chambers, and they shall put on other garments; and they shall not sanctify the people with their garments. (Lev 16:23)
44:20 Neither shall they shave their heads, nor suffer their locks to grow long; they shall only poll their heads.
Leviticus 21:5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
44:21 Neither shall any priest drink wine, when they enter into the inner court.
Leviticus 10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest you die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:
44:22 Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that is put away: but they shall take maidens of the seed of the house of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before.
44:23 And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
These are references to people, the other races.
Septuagint: 23 And they shall teach My people to distinguish between holy and profane, and they shall make known to them the difference between unclean and clean.
Malachi 2:7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of Yahweh of hosts.
44:24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to My judgments: and they shall keep My laws and My statutes in all Mine assemblies; and they shall hallow My sabbaths.
8 If there arise a matter too hard for you in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within your gates: then shalt you arise, and get you up into the place which Yahweh your God shall choose;
9 And you shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew you the sentence of judgment:
2Chronicles 19:8 Moreover in Jerusalem did Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of Yahweh, and for controversies, when they returned to Jerusalem.
44:25 And they shall come at no dead person (adam) to defile themselves: but for father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter, for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may defile themselves.
If the priesthood touched a dead person, they can't enter into the congregation (encampment) for a certain time until they are considered clean.
44:26 And after he is cleansed, they shall reckon unto him seven days.
Numbers 6:10 And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:
Numbers 19:11 He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean seven days.
44:27 And in the day that he goeth into the sanctuary, unto the inner court, to minister in the sanctuary, he shall offer his sin offering, saith Yahweh GOD.
Leviticus 4:3 If the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the people; then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a young bullock without blemish unto Yahweh for a sin offering.
44:28 And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their inheritance: and you shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their possession.
Numbers 18:20 And Yahweh spake unto Aaron, You shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt you have any part among them: I am your part and your inheritance among the children of Israel.
44:29 They shall eat the meat (grain) offering, and the sin offering, and the trespass offering; and every dedicated thing in Israel shall be theirs.
Leviticus 7:6 Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy.
44:30 And the first of all the firstfruits of all things, and every oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the priest's: you shall also give unto the priest the first of your dough, that he may cause the blessing to rest in your house.
44:31 The priests shall not eat of any thing that is dead of itself, or torn, whether it be fowl or beast.
Exodus 22:31 And you shall be holy men unto Me: neither shall you eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs. (Lev 22:8)
The land set aside for the returning remnant of Judah after Babylonian captivity.
Ezekiel 45:1 Moreover, when you shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, you shall offer an oblation (contribution) unto Yahweh, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about.
45:2 Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length, with five hundred in breadth, square round about; and fifty cubits round about for the suburbs thereof.
45:3 And of this measure shalt you measure the length of five and twenty thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand: and in it shall be the sanctuary and the most holy place.
45:4 The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister unto Yahweh: and it shall be a place for their houses, and an holy place for the sanctuary.
45:5 And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten thousand of breadth, shall also the Levites, the ministers of the house, have for themselves, for a possession for twenty chambers.
45:6 And you shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the oblation (contribution) of the holy portion: it shall be for the whole house of Israel.
45:7 And a portion shall be for the prince on the one side and on the other side of the oblation (contribution) of the holy portion, and of the possession of the city, before the oblation (contribution) of the holy portion, and before the possession of the city, from the west side westward, and from the east side eastward: and the length shall be over against one of the portions, from the west border unto the east border.
The prince would be the future king from the line of David that will return with the remnant from Babylon.
45:8 In the land shall be his possession in Israel: and My princes (chief men) shall no more oppress My people; and the rest of the land shall they give to the house of Israel according to their tribes.
The leaders were oppressing the people before the punishment of captivity.
45:9 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel: remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away your exactions from My people, saith Yahweh GOD.
45:10 Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath.
Measures of grains and liquids.
These are for our learning. And to not allow unjust weights and measures as the Jews do.
Where do you think the expression “Jew you down, or shiester” comes from?
Leviticus 19:35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.
Proverbs 11:1 A false balance is abomination to Yahweh: but a just weight is His delight.
45:11 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the tenth part of an homer: the measure thereof shall be after the homer.
45:12 And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh (measured weight).
45:13 This is the oblation (contribution) that you shall offer; the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of wheat, and you shall give the sixth part of an ephah of an homer of barley:
45:14 Concerning the ordinance of (olive) oil, the bath of oil, you shall offer the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, which is an homer of ten baths; for ten baths are an homer:
45:15 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the fat pastures of Israel; for a meat (grain) offering, and for a burnt offering, and for peace offerings, to make reconciliation (atonement) for them, saith Yahweh GOD.
Leviticus 1:4 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.
45:16 All the people of the land shall give this oblation (contribution) for the prince in Israel.
45:17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat (grain) offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons (new beginnings, renewal), and in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat (grain) offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.
All these things were 'done away with' when Christ died. Not the law, or the food laws, as the “churches” teach. Only the priesthood and its rituals and oblations expired.
45:18 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; In the first month, in the first day of the month, you shalt take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the sanctuary:
Leviticus 16:16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.
45:19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.
45:20 And so you shalt do the seventh day of the month for every one that erreth, and for him that is simple: so shall you reconcile the house.
H6612 pronounced peth-ee', peh'-you, peth-aw-ee'
From H6601 decieved; silly (that is, seducible): - foolish, simple (-icity, one).
Leviticus 4:27 And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of Yahweh concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;
45:21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, you shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.
45:22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.
Leviticus 4:14 When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him before the tabernacle of the congregation.
45:23 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to Yahweh, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering.
45:24 And he shall prepare a meat (grain) offering of an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an ephah.
45:25 In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the sin offering, according to the burnt offering, and according to the meat (grain) offering, and according to the oil.
Ezekiel 46:1 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon (new month) it shall be opened.
46:2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, and he shall worship (prostrate himself) at the threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until the evening.
46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before Yahweh in the sabbaths and in the new moons (new month, renewal).
46:4 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer unto Yahweh in the sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without blemish.
46:5 And the meat (grain) offering shall be an ephah for a ram, and the meat (grain) offering for the lambs as he shall be able to give, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:6 And in the day of the new moon (new month, renewal) it shall be a young bullock without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be without blemish.
46:7 And he shall prepare a meat (grain) offering, an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according as his hand shall attain unto, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:8 And when the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of the porch of that gate, and he shall go forth by the way thereof.
46:9 But when the people of the land shall come before Yahweh in the solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth over against it.
46:10 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in, shall go in; and when they go forth, shall go forth.
46:11 And in the feasts and in the solemnities the meat (grain) offering shall be an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, and to the lambs as he is able to give, and an hin of oil to an ephah.
46:12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt offering or peace offerings voluntarily unto Yahweh, one shall then open him the gate that looketh toward the east, and he shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, as he did on the sabbath day: then he shall go forth; and after his going forth one shall shut the gate.
46:13 You shalt daily prepare a burnt offering unto Yahweh of a lamb of the first year without blemish: you shalt prepare it every morning.
46:14 And you shalt prepare a meat (grain) offering for it every morning, the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of an hin of oil, to temper (moisten) with the fine flour; a meat (grain) offering continually by a perpetual ordinance unto Yahweh.
46:15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat (grain) offering, and the oil, every morning for a continual burnt offering.
46:16 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; If the prince give a gift unto any of his sons, the inheritance thereof shall be his sons'; it shall be their possession by inheritance.
46:17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of his servants, then it shall be his to the year of liberty (jubilee); after it shall return to the prince: but his inheritance shall be his sons' for them.
Leviticus 25:10 And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and you shall return every man unto his possession, and you shall return every man unto his family.
46:18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance by oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; but he shall give his sons inheritance out of his own possession: that My people be not scattered every man from his possession.
The Jews have had laws passed through our government that we must pay a 55% inheritance tax.
46:19 After He brought me through the entry, which was at the side of the gate, into the holy chambers of the priests, which looked toward the north: and, behold, there was a place on the two sides westward.
46:20 Then said He unto me, This is the place where the priests shall boil the trespass offering and the sin offering, where they shall bake the meat (grain) offering; that they bear them not out into the utter court, to sanctify the people.
46:21 Then He brought me forth into the utter court, and caused me to pass by the four corners of the court; and, behold, in every corner of the court there was a court.
46:22 In the four corners of the court there were courts joined of forty cubits long and thirty broad: these four corners were of one measure.
46:23 And there was a row of building round about in them, round about them four, and it was made with boiling places under the rows round about.
46:24 Then said He unto me, These are the places of them that boil, where the ministers of the house shall boil the sacrifice of the people.
Ezekiel 47:1 Afterward He brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
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.
Zechariah 13:1 In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness (removal and separation).
Zechariah 14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
1 And He shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
47:2 Then brought He me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.
47:3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, He measured a thousand cubits, and He brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
47:4 Again He measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again He measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
47:5 Afterward He measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
47:6 And He said unto me, Son of man (adam), hast you seen this? Then He brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.
47:7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other.
47:8 Then said He unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the (salt) sea: which being brought forth into the (salt) sea, the waters shall be healed (made fresh).
The salt sea is the Dead Sea. The salt content does not allow life.
47:9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
47:10 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea (Mediteranean), exceeding many.
47:11 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt (vanish, disappear).
47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat (food), whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat (food), and the leaf thereof for medicine.
Job 8:16 He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.
Psalm 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Jeremiah 17:8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Revelation 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
47:13 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; This shall be the border, whereby you shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have two portions.
Genesis 48:5 And now your (Joseph's) two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto you in the land of Egypt before I came unto you into Egypt, are Mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be Mine.
47:14 And you shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the which I lifted up Mine hand (swore) to give it unto your (fore) fathers: and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.
47:15 And this shall be the border of the land toward the north side, from the great sea (Mediteranean), the way of Hethlon, as men go to Zedad; (Num 34:8)
47:16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, which is by the coast of Hauran. (Num 34:8, 2 Sam 8:8)
47:17 And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And this is the north side. (Num 34:9)
47:18 And the east side you shall measure from Hauran, and from Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel by Jordan, from the border unto the east sea (Dead Sea). And this is the east side.
47:19 And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea (Mediteranean). And this is the south side southward.
47:20 The west side also shall be the great sea (Mediteranean) from the border, till a man come over against Hamath. This is the west (seaward) side.
47:21 So shall you divide this land unto you according to the tribes of Israel.
47:22 And it shall come to pass, that you shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel.
These would be our Adamite brethren.
Ephesians 3:6 That the (Adamic) nations should be fellowheirs, and of the same body (race), and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel (truth of our heritage, law, covenants and promises):
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all (the) nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
47:23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall you give him his inheritance, saith Yahweh GOD.
Ezekiel 48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to the coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath, Hazarenan, the border of Damascus northward, to the coast of Hamath; for these are his sides east and west; a portion for Dan.
48:2 And by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, a portion for Asher.
48:3 And by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the west (seaward) side, a portion for Naphtali.
48:4 And by the border of Naphtali, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, a portion for Manasseh.
48:5 And by the border of Manasseh, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, a portion for Ephraim.

48:7 And by the border of Reuben, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, a portion for Judah.
48:8 And by the border of Judah, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, shall be the offering which you shall offer of five and twenty thousand reeds in breadth, and in length as one of the other parts, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side: and the sanctuary shall be in the midst of it.
48:9 The oblation (contribution) that you shall offer unto Yahweh shall be of five and twenty thousand in length, and of ten thousand in breadth.
48:10 And for them, even for the priests, shall be this holy oblation (contribution); toward the north five and twenty thousand in length, and toward the west ten thousand in breadth, and toward the east ten thousand in breadth, and toward the south five and twenty thousand in length: and the sanctuary of Yahweh shall be in the midst thereof.
48:11 It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of Zadok; which have kept My charge, which went not astray when the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray.
48:12 And this oblation (contribution) of the land that is offered shall be unto them a thing most holy by the border of the Levites.
48:13 And over against the border of the priests the Levites shall have five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in breadth: all the length shall be five and twenty thousand, and the breadth ten thousand.
48:14 And they shall not sell of it, neither exchange, nor alienate the firstfruits of the land: for it is holy unto Yahweh.
Exodus 22:29 You shalt not delay to offer the first of your ripe fruits, and of your liquors: the firstborn of your sons shalt you give unto Me.
10 He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good: and if he shall at all change beast for beast, then it and the exchange thereof shall be holy.
28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto Yahweh of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto Yahweh.
33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
48:15 And the five thousand, that are left in the breadth over against the five and twenty thousand, shall be a profane (common) place for the city, for dwelling, and for suburbs: and the city shall be in the midst thereof.
48:16 And these shall be the measures thereof; the north side four thousand and five hundred, and the south side four thousand and five hundred, and on the east side four thousand and five hundred, and the west (seaward) side four thousand and five hundred.
48:17 And the suburbs of the city shall be toward the north two hundred and fifty, and toward the south two hundred and fifty, and toward the east two hundred and fifty, and toward the west (seaward) two hundred and fifty.
48:18 And the residue in length over against the oblation of the holy portion shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand westward (seaward): and it shall be over against the oblation (contribution) of the holy portion; and the increase thereof shall be for food unto them that serve the city.
48:19 And they that serve the city shall serve it out of all the tribes of Israel.
48:20 All the oblation (contribution) shall be five and twenty thousand by five and twenty thousand: you shall offer the holy oblation (contribution) foursquare, with the possession of the city.
48:21 And the residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and on the other of the holy oblation (contribution), and of the possession of the city, over against the five and twenty thousand of the oblation (contribution) toward the east border, and westward (seaward) over against the five and twenty thousand toward the west (seaward) border, over against the portions for the prince: and it shall be the holy oblation (contribution); and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst thereof.
48:22 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the possession of the city, being in the midst of that which is the prince's, between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin, shall be for the prince.
48:23 As for the rest of the tribes, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, Benjamin shall have a portion.
48:24 And by the border of Benjamin, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, Simeon shall have a portion.
48:25 And by the border of Simeon, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, Issachar a portion.
48:26 And by the border of Issachar, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, Zebulun a portion.
48:27 And by the border of Zebulun, from the east side unto the west (seaward) side, Gad a portion.
48:28 And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the border shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of strife in Kadesh, and to the river toward the great sea (Mediteranean).
48:29 This is the land which you shall divide by lot unto the tribes of Israel for inheritance, and these are their portions, saith Yahweh GOD.
48:30 And these are the goings out of the city on the north side, four thousand and five hundred measures.
48:31 And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben, one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi.
Revelation 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
48:32 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.
48:33 And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures: and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of Zebulun.
48:34 At the west (seaward) side four thousand and five hundred, with their three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali.
48:35 It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, Yahweh is there.
Ezekiel 29:17-30:19 are the final words of the book of Ezekiel
The 27th year of the capture of Jehoiachin, this would be 570 BC
Ezekiel 29:17 And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the first month, in the first day of the month, the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
29:18 Son of man (adam), Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:
The Babylonian's got no spoil from Tyre. But they didn't take the island, only the mainland, which moved it's riches to the island. Alexander the Great took the island later on.
29:19 Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and he shall take her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army.
Yahweh gave the Babylonian's their wages by conquering Egypt.
29:20 I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he served against it, because they wrought (worked) for Me, saith Yahweh GOD.
Jeremiah 25:9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith Yahweh, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations.
29:21 In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give you (Ezekiel) the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
The horn of the house of Israel to bud forth is a reference to our Messiah. We, true Israel will continue to flourish. Yahweh always keeps a remnant.
Yahweh will open Ezekiel's mouth in the midst of Israel. He was bound silent in the early chapters of the book.
Ezekiel 30:1 The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying,
30:2 Son of man (adam), prophesy and say, Thus saith Yahweh GOD; Howl you, Woe worth the day!
30:3 For the day is near, even the day of Yahweh is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time (appointed time of judgment) of the heathen (nations).
Joel 2:1 Blow you the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of Yahweh cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
30:4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in Ethiopia (Cush, south Nile valley), when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down.
30:5 Ethiopia (Cush), and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people, and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league (with Egypt), shall fall with them by the sword.
Ethiopia is Cush. Libya (Lubim) is Phut. Lydia should be Ludim (Lud). These three are of Ham.
Again the Bible stresses the difference between Yahweh's true and pure people and the mixed races and those of our brethren mixing with them.
20 And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,
24 And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell in the desert,
30:6 Thus saith Yahweh; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith Yahweh GOD.
30:7 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.
30:8 And they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.
30:9 In that day shall messengers go forth from Me in ships to make the careless (confident) Ethiopians (Cush) afraid, and great pain shall come upon them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.
1 Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Kush:
1 Woe to you, you wings of the land of ships, beyond the rivers of Kush. (Septuagint)
2 That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, you swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
2 He sends messengers by the sea, and paper letters on the water: for swift messengers shall go to a lofty nation, and to a strange and harsh people. Who is beyond it? a nation not looked for, and trodden down. (Septuagint)
30:10 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon.
Yahweh is declaring that the Hamites time would end at the hand of Nebuchadnezzar.
30:11 He (Nebuchadnezzar) and his people with him, the terrible (ruthless) of the nations, shall be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain.
30:12 And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I Yahweh have spoken it.
The people inhabiting Egypt today are the wicked and the strangers.
5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.
6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags (papyrus) shall wither.
30:13 Thus saith Yahweh GOD; I will also destroy the idols, and I will cause their images to cease out of Noph; and there shall be no more a prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.
Noph is the capital of upper Egypt.
Isaiah 19:1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, Yahweh rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at His presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
Jeremiah 43:12 And I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt; and he (Nebuchadnezzar) shall burn them, and carry them away captives: and he (Nebuchadnezzar) shall array himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd putteth on his garment; and he shall go forth from thence in peace.
Jeremiah 46:25 Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, saith; Behold, I will punish the multitude of No, and Pharaoh, and Egypt, with their gods, and their kings; even Pharaoh, and all them that trust in him:
30:14 And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan, and will execute judgments in No.
Pathros is southern Egypt. Zoan is in the Delta. No is Thebes.
Psalm 78:12 Marvellous things did He in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
Psalm 78:43 How He had wrought His signs in Egypt, and His wonders in the field of Zoan:
30:15 And I will pour My fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I will cut off the multitude of No.
Sin is an Egyptian town in Aram, eastern frontier city. A fortress town near the Sinai. It divided Egypt and Arabia.
Jeremiah 46:25 Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, saith; Behold, I will punish the multitude of No, and Pharaoh, and Egypt, with their gods, and their kings; even Pharaoh, and all them that trust in him:
30:16 And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and No shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses (face adversaries) daily.
30:17 The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword: and these cities shall go into captivity.
Aven is Heliopolis. In the Delta. Pibeseth is the historic Bubastum (Pi-Beseth).
30:18 At Tehaphnehes (Tahpanhes) also the day shall be darkened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt (oppression): and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters (surrounding cities) shall go into captivity.
Jeremiah 2:16 Also the children of Noph and Tahapanes have broken the crown of your head.
30:19 Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
EZEKIEL – CHURCH DOCTRINE VS. SCRIPTURE
Below are 3 sources of what the modern churches preach today about the book of Ezekiel.
The purpose is to expose the apostasy and perversion of the scriptures, and to educate our people about the truth of our heritage. That we, the anglo-saxon race who are the descendants of ancient Israel, are the people of Abraham's seed and therefore the heirs of the promises of Yahweh. Not the Jews who distort and pervert the scriptures and teach the 'traditions of men'.
The book of Ezekiel is Narrative History, Prophetic and Apocalyptic in genre and even contains Parables. The prophet Ezekiel wrote it approximately 571 B.C. (this date is accurately precise because this book contains more defined dates than any other book in the Bible.) Key personalities include Ezekiel, Israel’s leaders, Ezekiel’s wife, King Nebuchadnezzar, and “the prince”.
It was written to announce judgment upon Judah, to allow them one last chance to repent. It's directed to the house of Israel mainly. It also foretells of the coming deliverance of God’s nation from captivity in Babylon. It mainly discusses the events during the Babylonian captivity. Ezekiel is a priest who is called by God to deliver His messages.
• In chapters 1-3, God commissions his servant Ezekiel. He receives visions, and his message is to confront God’s sinful nation, “I am sending you to the sons of Israel, to a rebellious people who have rebelled against Me; they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day ” (2:3).
• Chapters 4-24, Ezekiel delivered the message of doom to the captives. He told several parables, one that compared Israel to an adulterous woman (16:1-63). He taught them that God was cleansing His chosen nation, “Thou have borne the penalty of your lewdness and abominations’, the LORD declares” (16:58).
• From chapters 25-32, Ezekiel condemns judgment upon seven particular nations who mocked YHWH, the God of Israel because of the captivity; they too would soon see their fate. These nations are Ammon, Moab, Edom, Philistia, Tyre, Sidon, and Egypt. WOW, this commentator used the actual Hebrew letters for Yahweh. Great! Now only if everyone could see that the Jews are NOT Israel.
• In chapters 33-48, a message of deliverance and restoration is written. This includes not only the current nation of Israel but also the future of the coming Messiah, the Temple, and the Kingdom of God in the End age. In chapter 37, he writes the famous vision of the valley of bones, “He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, Thou know” (37:3)
Summary of the Book of Ezekiel
Ezekiel lived during a time of international upheaval. The Assyrian empire that had once conquered the Syro-Palestinian area and destroyed the northern kingdom of Israel (which fell to the Assyrians in 722-721 b.c.) began to crumble under the blows of a resurgent Babylon. In 612 the great Assyrian city of Nineveh fell to a combined force of Babylonians and Medes. Three years later, Pharaoh Neco II of Egypt marched north to assist the Assyrians and to try to reassert Egypt's age-old influence over Canaan and Aram (Syria). At Megiddo, King Josiah of Judah, who may have been an ally of Babylon as King Hezekiah had been, attempted to intercept the Egyptian forces but was crushed, losing his life in the battle (2Ki 23:29-30; 2Ch 35:20-24).
Jehoahaz, a son of Josiah, ruled Judah for only three months, after which Neco installed Jehoiakim, another son of Josiah, as his royal vassal in Jerusalem (609 b.c.). In 605 the Babylonians overwhelmed the Egyptian army at Carchemish (Jer 46:2), then pressed south as far as the Philistine plain. In the same year, Nebuchadnezzar was elevated to the Babylonian throne and Jehoiakim shifted allegiance to him. When a few years later the Egyptian and Babylonian forces met in a standoff battle, Jehoiakim rebelled against his new overlord.
Nebuchadnezzar soon responded by sending a force against Jerusalem, subduing it in 597 b.c. Jehoiakim's son Jehoiachin and about 10,000 Jews (Jews are of Esau and Cain, the correct word is Judahites, the house of Judah) (2Ki 24:14), including Ezekiel, were exiled to Babylon, where they joined those who had been exiled in Jehoiakim's "third year" (Da 1:1). Nebuchadnezzar placed Jehoiachin's uncle, Zedekiah, on the throne in Jerusalem, but within five or six years he too rebelled. The Babylonians laid siege to Jerusalem in 588, and in July, 586, the walls were breached and the city plundered. On Aug. 14, 586, the city and temple were burned.
Under Nebuchadnezzar and his successors, Babylon dominated the international scene until it was crushed by Cyrus the Persian in 539 b.c. The reign of the house of David came to an end; the kingdom of Judah ceased to be an independent nation; Jerusalem and the Lord's (Yahweh's) temple lay in ruins. Lord is the title of Baal.
What is known of Ezekiel is derived solely from the book that bears his name. He was among the Jews (Judahites) exiled to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar in 597 b.c., and there among the exiles he received his call to become a prophet (see 1:1-3). He was married (see 24:15-18), lived in a house of his own (see 3:24; 8:1) and along with his fellow exiles, though confined to Babylonia, had a relatively free existence there.
He was of a priestly family and therefore was eligible to serve as a priest. As a priest-prophet called to minister to the exiles (separated from the temple of the Lord with its symbolism, sacrifices, priestly ministrations and worship rituals), his message had much to do with the temple (see especially chs. 8 - 11; 40 - 48) and its ceremonies. His visions and instructions for the temple were for when the remnant of Judahites returned from captivity and rebuilt the temple that the Levitical priesthood be restored and followed. It was also a shadow of future heavenly Jerusalem.
Occasion, Purpose and Summary of Contents
Though Ezekiel lived with his fellow exiles in Babylon, his divine call forced him to suppress any natural expectations he may have had of an early return to an undamaged Jerusalem. For the first seven years of his ministry (593-586 b.c.) he faithfully relayed to his fellow Jews (Israelites of the house of Judah, Judahites) the stern, heart-rending, hope-crushing word of divine judgment: Because of all her sins, Jerusalem would fall (see chs. 1 – 24). The Jews are of Esau. Esau is Edom. Edom is prophesied against here in Ezekiel, and other books, Obadiah is all about them. The fact that Israel was God's covenant people and that Jerusalem was the city of his temple would not bring their early release from exile or prevent Jerusalem from being destroyed (see Jer 29-30). The only hope the prophet was authorized to extend to his hearers was that of living at peace with themselves and with God during their exile. And to repent and conform!
After being informed by the Lord that Jerusalem was under siege and would surely fall (24:1-14), Ezekiel was told that his beloved wife would soon die. The delight of his eyes would be taken from him just as the temple, the delight of Israel's eyes, would be taken from her. He was not to mourn openly for his wife, as a sign to his people not to mourn openly for Jerusalem (24:15-27). He was then directed to pronounce a series of judgments on the seven nations of Ammon, Moab, Edom, Philistia, Tyre, Sidon and Egypt (chs. 25 - 32). The day of God's wrath was soon to come, but not on Israel alone.
Once news was received that Jerusalem had fallen, Ezekiel's message turned to the Lord's consoling word of hope for his people -- they would experience revival, restoration and a glorious future as the redeemed and perfected kingdom of God in the world (chs. 33 - 48).
God is free to judge, and he is equally free to be gracious. His stern judgments on Israel ultimately reflect his grace. He allows the total dismemberment of Israel's political and religious life so that her renewed life and his presence with her will be clearly seen as a gift from the Lord of the universe.
Furthermore, as God's spokesman, Ezekiel's "son of man" status testifies to the sovereign God he was commissioned to serve. Son of man is a reference to, a son of Adam. Adam is a particular race. The Hebrew word for Adam is awdawm, meaning ruddy, rosey, able to blush, show blood in the face. There is only one race, as a whole, that can do this.
The three major prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel) and Zephaniah all have the same basic sequence of messages: (1) oracles against Israel, (2) oracles against the nations, (3) consolation for Israel. In no other book is this pattern clearer than in Ezekiel.
Besides clarity of structure, the book of Ezekiel reveals symmetry. The vision of the desecrated temple fit for destruction (chs. 8 - 11) is balanced by the vision of the restored and purified temple (chs. 40 - 48). The God presented in agitated wrath (ch. 1) is also shown to be a God of comfort ("the Lord is there," 48:35). Ezekiel's call to be a watchman announcing divine judgment (ch. 3) is balanced by his call to be a watchman announcing the new age to follow (ch. 33). In one place (ch. 6) the mountains of Israel receive a prophetic rebuke, but in another (ch. 36) they are consoled. A watchman is a shepherd who teaches truth, attacks evil and expels it from society, upholds the law and feasts, honors the sabbath. A watchman is basically one who imitates Christ. We are all watchman, we must all uphold Yahweh's Way.
Who wrote the book?
The book of Ezekiel takes its title from the priest of the same name, son to a man named Buzi. Ezekiel’s priestly lineage shines through in his prophetic ministry; he often concerned himself with topics such as the temple, the priesthood, the glory of the Lord, and the sacrificial system.
Ezekiel 1:1 tells us that the prophecy began “in the thirtieth year.” Scholars usually consider this a reference to Ezekiel’s age, making him about the same age as Daniel, who was exiled to Babylon nearly a decade earlier. Not likely. Age 30 is the eligible age one can become a priest. (Ex: Christ) Like many priests of Israel, Ezekiel was married. A 13 year old married priest, really!? But when his wife died during his prophetic ministry, God prevented Ezekiel from mourning her in public as a sign of Judah’s lack of concern for the things of God (Ezekiel 24:16–24).
Where are we?
Ezekiel lived among the Jewish (Jews are Edomites and Canaanites)(Jews should always read Judah, Judahites, or Judaean) exiles in Babylon at a settlement along the river Chebar called Tel-abib (Ezekiel 3:15), less than one hundred miles south of Babylon. Total lie. Tel-abib cannot be translated from a word that means 'passed through the air'. The invading Babylonians brought about ten thousand Jews (Judahites of the house of Judah) to the village in 597 BC, including Ezekiel and the last king of Judah, Jehoiachin (2 Kings 24:8–14).
Ezekiel’s prophecy began a mere five years into his time at Tel-abib (Ezekiel 1:2) (deception and lies again, nowhere in Ez 1:2 is the word Tel-abib, they are by the river Chebar, in the Assyrian part of Mesopotamia), and he continued to prophesy among the people for at least twenty-two years (29:17). Because he spoke to a people whom God had exiled due to their continued rebellion against Him, a majority of Ezekiel’s message communicates judgment for sins committed (1:1–32:32). However, like all the prophets, he also provided his people, now without a land of their own, some hope for the future (33:1–48:35).
Why is Ezekiel so important?
The book of Ezekiel pronounces judgment on both Israel and surrounding nations, but it also provides a vision of the future millennial kingdom that complements and adds to the vision of other Old and New Testament texts. The millennial kingdom is a false doctrine. Christ is not making 3 trips, nor is He going to allow the children of Satan (Cain and Esau's descendants, the Jews) to ruin some “millennial reign”. The 1000 years happened between Constantine and the French Revolution when the Jews and their usury were excoriated from society and the Reformation took place. Now we are in the 'little season' when the Jews are deceiving the nations by claiming to be Israel and running the world through their Babylonian Beast System. Banking and commerce, sex and race mixing, materialism, sports and movie worship, our society is not a Christian one, look around, we are Soddom and Gomorrah. When Christ returns, that's it. Evil gone, never to return. Not only does the book present a striking picture of the resurrection and restoration of God’s people (Ezekiel 37), it also offers readers a picture of the reconstructed temple in Jerusalem, complete with the return of God’s glory to His dwelling place (40:1–48:35). This latter section of Ezekiel’s prophecy looks forward to the people’s worship after Christ’s return in the end times, when He will rule Israel and the nations from His throne in Jerusalem during His thousand year reign. More false doctrine. The bible does not say His throne will be in Jerusalem when you study everywhere it seems to refer to that place. Many times the references to Jerusalem are references to His people wherever they dwell. Since after the time of Christ, we Israelites have left Palestine and migrated into Europe and eventually regathered with our kinsmen (all 12 tribes) here in America, just as prophesied, most of the time when it seems that it is referring to that Edomite Den of Serpents, Israel.
What's the big idea?
God didn’t exile the Israelites primarily to punish them. Obviously this commentator didn't learn any lessons about the punishments in Ezekiel. He had to 'cast them off' (divorce) exile them. Israel is His bride who cheated. God never has been nor is He now interested in punishment for punishment’s sake. This is true. Rather, He intended the punishment or judgment in Ezekiel’s day as a means to an end—to bring His people to a state of repentance and humility before the one true God. They had lived for so long in sin and rebellion, confident in their own strength and that of the neighboring nations, that they needed God to remind them of His holy nature and their humble identity in a most dramatic way. After centuries of warnings, prophetic messages, and invasions, God decided that more significant action was required—He had to remove the people from their promised land.
How do I apply this?
Ezekiel’s entire prophetic ministry centered around the small exiled community at Tel-abib (everyone's drinking the koolaid)(this Tel-abib is added and has no place), a people uprooted from their homes and livelihoods living out their days in a foreign land. Can you imagine the feelings of disorientation and confusion that accompanied these people? Even though many of the exiles were directly engaged in the sinful behavior that led to God’s judgment, that would not prevent them from wondering why all this was happening to them.
We sometimes find ourselves in that predicament as well, asking “Why, Lord?” and waiting in silence for the answer. The exiles had to wait five years for God to send Ezekiel, and when God did, His prophet had a message that the people likely didn’t want to hear: God is the Lord of heaven and earth, and the judgment the people were experiencing was a result of their own sin.
The book of Ezekiel reminds us to seek out the Lord in those dark times when we feel lost, to examine our own lives, and to align ourselves with the one true God. Will you consider doing so today?
