WORLD SIGNS in the END TIMES

8803679ac0fe20bb05080dd5eb167e9fWe are in the end of [the seven] days; in the beginning of the seventh day or seventh-thousandth year since the beginning of the spiritual decline of mankind, symbolized by the fall in the garden.

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8.

The number seven pertains to the spiritual, coinciding with the spiritual “era of Jacob,” which the world entered with the new millennium.  It is important that we understand the spiritual message encoded in Jacob’s description of his sons in what is the last, or end of, days.

“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.”  Genesis 49:1

The Quran refers to it as “The Day of Gathering together.”

It is a spiritual or internal gathering of the 12 sons of Jacob or 12 tribes of Israel, which takes place as we judge (overcome) the negative aspects of these sons or tribes from within our own mind and heart.

“And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”  Matthew 19:28

Let’s take a look at the first three unholy spirits or energies, born of Leah, symbolizing flesh. Because this spiritual judgment has not been taking place in mankind, the negative and destructive spirits or energies of what these sons or tribes represent, moves out into the physical where we can see the effects they are having upon mankind.  Leah’s first son is Reuben. The unholy spirit of Reuben is fear, a spiritual truth we find encoded in the story of Reuben, who lay with his father’s concubine, Bilhah, which means terror. The SIGN of this fear or terror was SEPTEMBER 11th, 2001. What follows fear are two more unholy spirits:

“Simeon and Levi are brethren: instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.”  Genesis 49:5,6

Simeon and Levi, the unholy spirits of anger and control. They are brethren; kindred spirits. Where there is one, you will find the other. They are the source of every physical addiction, which is being driven by our spiritual bondage or addiction. The soul is not to come unto their “assembly,” referring, outwardly, to the religious assembly, as the church is filled with false beliefs, and as the temple was filled with false images in the days of Josiah. What is sustaining the anger and control that fuels our addictions, are the false images or beliefs we have set up in that spiritual temple called the heart.  It was in the temple that Jesus expressed righteous anger in response to the false images that were set up upon the tables, representing “the fleshy tables of the heart.”  Let us use our anger to do right, directing it toward the false image or belief, which through our sincere desire to overcome, will bring us the truth that destroys them; making us spiritually free.

Many choose to accept these false religious beliefs because it gives them a feeling of empowerment, and peace, but it is a false empowerment, and a false peace, symbolized by the wall that should be brought down, and will be brought down when the reality of what is taking place in the world does not match the religious image they bought into.

“Because, even because they 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: Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall…”  Ezekiel 13:10,11

And if you challenge their beliefs, you will see their anger rise up in an effort to maintain control, which they demonstrate by slaying you metaphorically with hateful words, just as the religious assembly slew Jesus for attempting to bring them a new, yet ancient, spiritual truth— “for in their anger they slew a man.” 

It is through their anger and control that  “they digged down a wall,” symbolizing the invisible wall of protection they would have entered through spiritual obedience to the internal works that Jesus spoke of and demonstrated for us while he was on this earth. We are seeing this anger being unleashed upon our policemen, who serve as our physical wall of protection, a macrocosm of the WORLD-SIGN revealing the spirit of anger and control in the heart of mankind, which is giving power to the “instruments of cruelty,” who are demonstrating this negative and destructive energy from without, which we have come to know as ISIS. 

What do September 11th, 2001 and ISIS have in common? The nation they are associated with. The nation chosen to represent the spiritual bondage of mankind. The carnal interpretations being assigned to both the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran have kept those of Religion from obeying the spiritual laws or works through which they would have been made free of their spiritual bondage, which is why the Religion chosen to represent the bondage state of the soul, is gaining in power, exponentially.  But it is not a peaceful power. It is a negative and destructive warring power, whose law will be oppressive, a law without mercy.  As within, as without.

“Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? “For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by the bondmaid, the other by a freewoman…which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants.”  Galatians 4:21, 22, 24

Islam and Israel, two great nations, each serving as a SIGN, revealing the spiritual state of man. Ishmael and Isaac, two sons, existing without as Muslims and Jews. Existing side-by-side in the holy Land, symbolizing the Heart of man.  The on-going war between Palestinians and Jews is the outward expression of the on-going internal war that has yet to be won in the heart of man.

“From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?” James 4:1

The “members” symbolize our own mind and heart, the lusts of which are driven by the false beliefs that keep us in spiritual bondage, under the 1st covenant

Israel and America are inherently linked by what they stand for— freedom, the 2nd covenant.

They must stand in support of one another to preserve our physical freedom, as they represent the two witnesses that work together within to bring us spiritual freedom. America’s symbol is the eagle, symbolizing the presence of God.   Israel’s symbol is the star of David, the six points representing our six days of spiritual works, through which we are made spiritually free. The country retreat for the President of the United States is called “Camp David,” which is no coincidence.  David was a man after God’s own heart, which he became by slaying the Lion and the Bear, the lion symbolizing man’s unholy spirit, the bear symbolizing man’s unrighteous word, man’s word being the sum of his false religious and personal beliefs, which the prophet Jeremiah says will be his burden, which is bondage.  America, “the land of the free,” had to fight against England, whose symbol is the Lion, in order to preserve that freedom.

The recent focus on Russia, whose symbol is the Bear, is yet another SIGN. 

Having entered the spiritual era with the new millennium, we must now fight against the spiritual bear by fighting against the unrighteous word of our own heart.  If man continues in his spiritual disobedience by refusing to fight this internal bear, the external Land that stands for freedom will become a Land of bondage, which we are already witnessing here in America through the enactment of more and more laws. To stop an oppressive government and religion from ruling us from without, we must stop the oppressive power that is ruling us from within.  Russia stands in support of Syria, another very important SIGN, pointing to the direction we are headed as a people and as nations if we do not get on with slaying the spiritual bear of false beliefs, the Holy Bible providing us with the instruction through which we will be delivered of this oppressive internal, and therefore external power we are facing in these END TIMES.

“ Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died.  And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows. And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his hands upon the king’s hands. And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the Lord’s deliverance from Syria…”  2 Kings 13:14-17  

Elisha received “the double portion,” symbolizing the spirit and word of God, the presence of God, the death of which took place within us when we replaced God’s holy spirit and word with an unholy spirit and word, symbolized by the lion and the bear that David slew. To be delivered of our word of false beliefs will require us to follow the instruction of Elisha, which being the power of resurrection, will bring about a resurrection of truth from within our heart.  

“And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood upon his feet.”  2 Kings 13:21

Jesus, symbolizing truth, said, “I am the resurrection.”  It is through the resurrection of truth from within our heart that we receive salvation; being saved from our own word of false beliefs, through which our heart is made clean, our spiritual essence restored to the state in which we received it from God.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” Psalms 51:10-12 

 It is through God’s power that our heart is made clean. But as Joash called upon Elisha, we must call upon the spiritual power of our heart by activating it according to God’s ancient spiritual instruction. 

These are a just a few of the WORLD SIGNS in these END TIMES.

JUDAH & JERUSALEM TODAY

OpenBible2

The Bible contains the history of the Judean-Christian religion. There is an Israel and Judah of Judaism.  And an Israel and Judah of Christianity, whose history is encoded in the stories of the Old Testament.  Israel was called Judah after passing through the Red Sea, receiving the name through a type-and-shadow baptism. Judah is associated with the name.  Jesus, of the tribe of Judah, said that he came in his Father’s name.  Jesus was called the Son of God.  The surname of the father is carried on through the son.

“In Isaac shall the seed be called.” Hebrews 11:18

Jesus, the seed of God made flesh, the word called meaning to bid, call forth, whose surname was called.  It was in the literal name (assigned to the Father in the carnal era of Isaac) that the people were to be baptized.  But now, in what is the spiritual era of  Jacob, it is in the spiritual name that we are to be baptized.  Jacob was called Israel, the sons of Jacob (Genesis 49) revealing the spiritual process through which one becomes a spiritual son of God, having the spiritual name, fulfilling the carnal law.

“A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.  Deuteronomy 23:2

The Israel of Christianity is Catholic and Trinity.  The Judah of Christianity is Pentecost.  What separated the two can be seen in their baptisms.  Pentecost, Judah of the Gentiles, baptized “in the name of Jesus,” which came by revelation in the early 1900’s, and is the true baptism.

Catholic and Trinity baptize “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,” an illegitimate baptism as no man has the power to baptize us of the Son or of the Holy Spirit, which are spiritual baptisms.

Israel and Judah separated when it came to water baptism, but they were of one when it came to the spirit that had rule over them, a king symbolizing a spirit.

“And Jehoshaphat [king of Judah] said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses.” 1 Kings 22:4

The word horse means to skip; a swallow (from its rapid flight).  The spirit of the horse is impatience.  The JUDAH of Judaism got impatient while waiting for Moses to come down off the mount, during which time they built a false image, breaking God’s spiritual law; a transgression that placed them under the carnal law.  The JUDAH of Christianity got impatient while waiting for what Moses symbolizes, which is the holy Spirit, which Paul told them they would receive once they believed and were baptized.

“And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Spirit since ye believed? Acts 19:1,2

But it was not the Holy Spirit they would receive.  It was the gift, which the holy spirit delivers, understanding that came through the revelation of 1960.

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38 

Paul turned the truth into a lie, causing Christians to build a false spiritual image. When we accept a lie in our heart, we are committing spiritual adultery because our spiritual husband is truth.   Both Israel and Judah of the Gentiles committed spiritual adultery by accepting Paul’s Great Lie.

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

According to the words of Jeremiah, God was married to Israel and Judah.  There was an intercourse or communication that took place between God and this Israel and Judah of the Gentiles.  The unholy spirit that caused them to commit spiritual adultery was their impatience with regard to what they were promised, encoded in the story of Judah, whose daughter-in-law played the harlot due to impatience when it came to what she was promised.

The Israel and Judah of Christianity have become one, but not for the good, ruled by the same unholy spirit of impatience, the spirit of Judah, which has caused them to skip over the spiritual (internal) works that would bring them into the exalted state they are proclaiming out of this impatience.  According to the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah, they are not born again, and they are not saved, a doctrine that has spread throughout Christianity.  Those that have accepted the “born again and saved” lie are JUDAH, which has caused their mind to enter a false peace, which JERUSALEM (in this context) symbolizes.  This is the JUDAH and JERUSALEM of which Isaiah and Jeremiah prophesied.
