Receiving Thy Sight
"And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way."
We’re going to move quickly on this topic with some jaunts back to scripture that we’ve covered before, for clarification. I received a blessing this day and I want to share it with you, because it is very personal. This will affect you and as you read, I want you to remember how big God is, and much of what He does we have not seen.
On the blog topic “Faith During a Bad Day” we discussed briefly the events leading up to Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus. In Acts chapter 9, we discovered a curiously worded command from the Lord to Ananias as to where to find Saul:
"And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,"
Upon further search in the scriptures, not only is the “house of Judas” absent of any other mention, also no specific street name is there anywhere else in the Bible. The fact that the name of this street, “Straight” is there before the house of “Judas” certainly bears more scrutiny.
We know Judah means "praised” or “celebrated” in Jewish etymology. We also know that “Judas” is the Greek translation of “Judah”.
Judas' surname Iscariot means "traitor" - Greek "Iskariotes" from the Hebrew word meaning "man of Kerioth” (a place in Palestine). This may have been determined after what he did. I was trying to find a meaning of his surname or even the place from which he came.
Here's the thing - Judah means "praised" or "celebrated". Judas is the Greek name for Judah. On the "Babylon Dictionary" I found this:
This source got their definition from Webster’s. So I looked up the word "Kerioth" which is the city from which Judas (Iscariot) was from and from where they surmise his surname was derived -
Kerioth was a town in the south of Judeah and not much information is given on it.
At that same link it also gave this:
Let’s look at their reference to Amos:
"But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet:"
Wow . . . is that THIS trumpet?
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:"
"But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets."
"And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever."
Now lets read a few more verses, in context from Amos to answer that question:
"But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet: 3. And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof, and will slay all the princes thereof with him, saith the Lord.
4. Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the Lord, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked: 5. But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem."
“Kirioth” means two cities – Sodom and Gomorrah were “twin cities”
Sodom is mentioned with Gomorrah in Genesis chapters 10 into other books of the Bible. Just a couple I will highlight:
"And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar."
"And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;"
"Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;"
Was Kirioth another Sodom? Kirioth, it says in Amos 2, will be “devoured” and Moab “will die” with “shouting and the sound of a trumpet”.
"Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee."
Of the flying roll in Zechariah 5 –
"I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof."
"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:"
If we were to imagine what this might look like; the entering of the flying roll into the house of the liar and the thief; the consuming by the bringing forth of a “fire from the midst” of him, and consumed with the spirit of the Lord’s mouth and destroyed with the brightness of his coming, this would probably come close to it:
Destroyed with the brightness
Of his coming – The flying roll
Enters the house of the liar
It is very similar to what I saw in the dream about his return, only the light was so bright, I did not see what happened to the evil one. I only know that his screams faded in the bright light until that light swallowed them up and he was no more.
Back to Kirioth, it is unclear whether or not this had a direct connection to the “house of Judas” spoken of in Acts 9, where Saul sat blinded for three days. We do know that in Acts 9, after seeking him out “in the street that is called Straight” in the “house of Judas”, Ananias is told by the Lord:
"But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: 16. For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.”
In verse 71, we learn that he Saul does not receive the Holy Ghost until after Ananias goes and lays hands on him. Saul’s eyes are then able to see and it says he stands and is Baptized.
"17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. 18. And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized."
So Saul, who is also called Paul was a chosen vessel unto the Lord. He was shown all the things he must suffer for Christ’s namesake. Ananais “laid hands” on Paul, Paul’s sight was returned to him, and he was “baptized” by the Holy Ghost, in the house of Judas, in the street which is called Straight.
Not Crooked (Serpent Hydra)
Saul was a Pharisee before that, and the son of a Pharisee. So it would be accurate to assume that the house of “Judas” was that of Judah, son of Jacob (Israel).
We don’t know much about Judas’ background other than he was the son of Simon Iscariot. I looked up the meaning of the name Iscariot and found Kerioth and Kirioth (as I mentioned above):
We already covered Amos 2:2 above.
"But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet:"
We associated it with the devouring of the wicked one who will be destroyed with the brightness of his coming. This took us to 2 Thessalonians 2:3-6 and Zechariah 5:4 with the flying roll in the house of the liar and the thief.
When Ananias was told to go "into the street called STRAIGHT" and inquire for Saul in the "House of Judas", that is the only place in the Bible that mentions a "House of Judas". Is it talking about Judas the traitor or Judas, Greek for Judah?
In the letter to the Galatians, Paul says something interesting. Leading up to this, he defends his knowledge of the gospel as being not from me, but from the revelation of Jesus Christ – in other words, Paul verifies John 14:26 in that it is the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, that teaches us. That Comforter is sent in Jesus’ name, upon baptism of the Holy Ghost, as you ask.
This is why Jesus emphasized to baptize in the NAME of Father, and OF the Son, and OF the Holy Ghost. We “call upon the NAME” of the Lord to be saved. God’s name has been PROFANED – it has been “BLASPHEMED as It is written”. Because they sought to hide the name. The same is done within our DNA, by OUR choice and through deceit of those playing our vanities.
Paul also tells the Galatians that it “pleased God, who separated me from my mothers womb and called me by his grace to reveal his son in me . . .”
IN me, he said. Reveal his son IN ME. This is what the conversion on the road to Damascus was all about. Complete conversion of the book within us.
"But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
13. For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14. And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
15. But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, 16. To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:"
He conferred NOT with flesh and blood. He knew NONE of the apostles nor did he learn from them, because he began preaching a day or two after his sight was returned. The apostles other than Ananias he did not meet until later in his ministry and then it was only two others that he ever ran into – James and Peter, and Peter he did not meet until three years after his ministry begun.
Hold onto this thought, because we will come back to it.
David’s Throne, and Christ
There is something else in Micah that I will go over, but first, lets go back to David’s Psalm of 139:
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them."
Here David reveals the description of our substance – our DNA, the “Book of the Law” and the building blocks of all creation. David talks about being “made in secret” and “curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth”. The word “wrought” means “put together, created; made delicately or elaborately”.
David said his substance was not hid from [God], and in verse 16, David reveals that he knew that all his “members” were written in God’s book before there was any of them.
If David was made in the lower parts of the earth, and the “beast” is supposed to ascend from the “bottomless pit”, and Ezekiel 26:20 reveals God telling Ezekiel about those that “go down into the pit” and the people of old time; Where else is this supposed to be but IN the earth? Ezekiel talks of those being set in the “low parts of the earth” in places “desolate of old” - I searched for reference of this “place”. Was it Babylon? We have a spiritual Israel (not the state of) do we also have a spiritual Babylon?
I found reference to Dudael which does NOT appear in the Bible at all, but is in what is being passed around as the book of Enoch online.
We know from our research into “the firmament” that there is more to this earth than just the soil, waters, crust, bedrock and magma.
One of the Jackson’s children had posted something about Hollow Earth back in 2011.
Jafaar’s Post on Twit-Pic
Here is a clearer diagram:
Hollow Earth Diagram
Here is another Diagram, more simplistic
We have references BIBLICALLY of “the great deep”, the “lower parts of the earth”, the “firmament” that separated the “waters above” from the “waters below” it. We covered that on “Bell Curve of the Firmament” and “DOME”.
I picked up on some other verses of scripture on this thanks to this video below. Disclaimer: I do not agree with ALL their theories, but the scripture they reference we will be going over:
An Argument for Hollow Earth
According to the available book of Enoch, Dudael was where Satan was thrown.
I did a search on just the name "Dudael". The Wikipedia article above of course was the first result - but the second one threw me back. It was a blog titled "Rector: Q: Where is Dudael. It is a Google blogspot blog, and its url begins with "luminyeri.blogspot.com/ - and the rest of it.
In that "Luminyeri" article on Dudael, it said this (to remind you Dudael is not mentioned in scripture at all, but in the unverified book of Enoch that is floating around out there as the real thing. I'm not convinced it's all authentic, but a re-written version of it, just as they wanted to do with the books they cannot find, missing from the Aleppo Codex):
I have not found THAT definition of Dudael. But some illustrations of “Hollow Earth” do depict a “heaven” in the lower earth. That would sure be an effective “deception”, to convince people that is where heaven was. And surely there are “religions” out there that teach of an “ascended” race in the lower parts of the earth. I don’t doubt it, but I do doubt they are “of” God. Look again at what David said in Psalms 139:15 to God – “my substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. . .”
On the video above, at about 1:17 minutes, the narrator tells us that Hitler sent three expeditions to Antarctica for the sheer fact that they believed so ardently in a “hollow earth” theory. The Enoch quotes talk about a desert with “jagged rocks”, surmising this is the “Negev” desert. But there is another desert that also has “jagged rocks” that better matches the diagram theories above:
No green life and plenty of rocks
About Those Aura Borealis's
Proof that flights previously were NOT allowed to fly over the poles:
"Airlines given permission to fly over North Pole for the first time slashing the hours to exotic destinations" - Source, Dailymail.co.uk
This was published on December 25, 2011. I laughed out loud over this paragraph, just because of who they quoted and what he said:
It says nothing about flying directly over the poles, only flying the "polar route" which before extended flights were possible, were forbidden. There were also no fly zones over the Soviet Block countries during the cold war.
Today, this is what is says about flying directly over the polar regions, not over the poles themselves - source. I also found it interesting that "Antarctica" or parts of it, are U.S. territory. When did that happen?
So is there a possible “entrance” at one of the poles? Both poles? The South Pole? It’s certainly arid and rocky enough.
I had a very hard time finding the name "Dudael". I either came up with no etymology found or the substitution of "Dudel", missing the one vowel. It was the closest I could find. When I pulled that up, I found something interesting:
Yiddish? Diminutive of David? Psalm 139:14-16 , “Curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth . . .”?
Dudel is a "diminutive of David" and David was made "in secret" in "the lowest parts of the earth"?
What is the "city of David"? Wikipedia says it is a core settlement within the city of Jerusalem that runs along a ridge just south of the Temple Mount in the neighborhood of "Silwan" in East Jerusalem. (Source)
Most of us are familiar with what the Bible says about the "City of David" and they refer to this passage more often than not:
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
And this one:
"And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)"
Joseph took Mary “unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem. The period maps of that time show Bethlehem as about 20 miles south of Jerusalem.
Today's Map shows this:
Today's Map of Jerusalem/Bethlehem/Nazareth
This is a diagram of where the Temple Mount is located
(In the Old City)
Note they have "City of David" circled below
Here is another showing churches and both Mosques
And all of this in context
So where was Bethlehem . . . really? Bethlehem is not in Jerusalem. Bethlehem is not even “the old city”. It is a city quite a ways south of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem (jarah + shalom) means “He threw/cast + peace”. It is translated as “foundation of peace”.
Bethlehem is assumed to mean “house of Lahmu or Lahamu” and is further assumed that it references a pair of Mesopotamian deities. But they’re not sure?
I’m not buying that, it makes absolutely no sense. Mesopotamia was east Babylon and at one time encompassed Babylon. Israel was in the land of Canaan. So I broke up the words between the “le”:
Beth didn’t come up but “Bethel” did. Bethel which is also a city in Israel between Jerusalem and Samaria (it is north of Jerusalem). Bethel means “house of God” from beth +el. On that same link is “Bethesda” which means “house of mercy” from “beth + hesda”. So it is safe to assume that “Bethlehem” is “house of” something . . . lehem pulls up nothing. It is also noted that “bet” is the second letter of the Hebrew Alphabet – Alpha (first, Aleph) is God (the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending), interesting “Bet” is the second (house, or house of God/dwelling).
Hem on the Etymology link means “border or fringe”, but in Hebrew it says it means “they”. Under “fringe/border” I found verses concerning the hem or fringe of Jesus’ garment (the woman that touched the hem of his garment and was healed).
The Jews use “Elohim” as one of the names for God. The meaning of that is described as “gods” or “powers”. Elohim is a plural noun. If “him” is plural, is “hem” singular? Or is it the same (they)?
I wonder why this is so hard to find? This was starting to aggravate me. It would figure that the place of Jesus’ birth would be degraded into a meaning for pagan deities when other words with “beth” in it denoted house of God or house of mercy or house of something else –
Oh Little Town of Bethlehem
Then I looked up “Bethlehem” in the scriptures and the first mention of the name is the place where Rachel dies giving birth to Benjamin:
"And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem."
The way they worded this was “in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem” – NOT “on the way to” or “which is IN Bethlehem” but “IN the way to Ephrath, which IS Bethlehem”. (City of David is Bethlehem which is also Zion, which is also Ephrath).
Another verse also references this:
"And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem."
So Ephrath is Bethlehem. Jacob buried Rachel “in the way of Ephrath”. So I looked up “Ephrath” – which means “fruitful”.
The book of Ruth, which tells the story of Ruth and Boaz (Jachin and Boaz) also mentions both Ephrath and Bethlehem together in the same sentence, only Ephrathites is used as a culture of people and Bethlehem is called “BethlehemJudah”:
"And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there."
Micah 5:2 references both names together:
"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting."
In Micah, they address Bethlehem Ephratah as a person or peoples. And from here would come the ruler of Israel (which after David and Solomon has not come yet). Bethlehem and Ephratah are the same (with the “h”, Ephratah also means “fruitful”). Ephrath was later called Bethlehem either after or at the time Rachel died giving birth to Benjamin. We only know that is the first time “Bethlehem” is mentioned.
Looking at “Bethlehem” again I noticed something. If the “e” and the “l” were transposed for some reason, Bethlehem would read “Bethelhem” or “Bethel” with “hem” added to it. Since “Bethel” means “house of God”, perhaps the “hem” suffix in Bethlehem refers to a “fringe” or “border for “border” of the house of God or “foundation” of the house of God.
I also found this. Part of the word “Bethlehem”, “hem” is part of the name of “Shem”. Shem was Noah’s first son from which the Semitic people came (Jews, Arabs, Abraham was descendant of Shem as was Jacob, Isaac and Ishmael). Jesus was a descendant of Shem also.
Shem did not show up in that same Etymology link, but Samuel did. And they used “Shem” to describe the meaning of that name!
Bethlehem = Beth (house) + el (God) + shem (name). “The House of God’s Name” Or the “name of the house of God”? The “new” city from Ephrath to Bethlehem which is also Zion which is also Jerusalem – all but the latter named as the city of David.
Today the city of David is promoted as being Jerusalem. It is not. Jerusalem today is not even Jerusalem – not the one of the Bible. ZION is the city of David. Bethlehem is Zion. And Jerusalem is Zion.
Now look at this:
"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name."
Jesus in heaven says “I will write upon him the name of my God”, and he says “the city of my God, which is NEW Jerusalem”. New Jerusalem. Salem existed before. Melchizedek was king of Salem (Genesis 14:18, Hebrews 7:2). Jesus then says “I will write upon him my new name”.
Revelation 2:26-28 tells us that Jesus will chose a new ruler in Heaven. He will rule the nations with a rod of iron and just as he received from his Father, he will give him the morning star.
This is the same person who in the end times is caught up to God and to his throne:
"And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. "
Bethlehem is the City of David and Jesus’s birth. Jesus would sit “on the throne of David”. Now look at this:
A City and a Ladder or Stairs?
The above picture is one of many reliefs of what the “City of David” was supposed to look like. Another one below:
City of David
In your opinion, do you think it looks a little like this?
The nucleus of course being the “palace” or the “house of God”, the “holiest of all” where “the book” is written. This is where the “DNA” is resides – the book of the law.
Let’s look at more descriptions of the City of David:
"Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David."
David brought the “ark of God” from the house of Obededom into the city of David. What was in the ark of God? “The book of the Law” (Deut. 31:26).
"And it was told king David, saying, The Lord hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness.
16. And as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart."
Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window and saw David leaping and dancing before the Lord. Jealousy?
"Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the city of David, which is Zion."
Solomon, David’s son and king after David, would seek to bring the ark of the Covenant (Ark of God) out of the city of David, which is Zion. It would be placed in the “new temple” he was building.
What happened to that temple? What did Solomon allow in there that causes God to bring Nebuchadnezzar to take the children of Israel (namely the elite of Israel) into Babylon? In 1 Kings 6:38, it says it took Solomon seven years to build the temple.
In 1 Kings 11, Solomon did not head the Lord’s warning. He clave unto strange women, seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines and as he got older, they turned him to other gods. So the breaches in the city of David began, and Solomon’s heart was not perfect with the Lord, as was his father David’s heart.
In verses 31-36, God tells Jeroboam the Ephrathite (Ephrath is Behlehem), that he will give Solomon’s kingdom to him, ten of the tribes of Israel. Solomon would keep one for God’s promise to David, and Solomon’s son Rehoboam would have a tribe.
Solomon’s temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586B.C. Construction of the second temple (Zerubbabel) was authorized by Cyrus 48 years later, and the “temple made with hands” was completed 23 years later according to sources writing the article at Wikipedia. Accounts of this Biblically began in Ezra Through Zechariah. Back in Nehemiah, we learn of the efforts to “repair” the “City of David”:
"But the gate of the fountain repaired Shallun the son of Colhozeh, the ruler of part of Mizpah; he built it, and covered it, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof, and the wall of the pool of Siloah by the king's garden, and unto the stairs that go down from the city of David."
Much later in Nehemiah, towards the end of the Babylonian exile they seek to build a new temple. Ezra, the book before Nehemiah, was the priest that read the newly found “Book of the law” of Moses. And remember Nehemiah 8 was where we discovered that the truth of the “Book of the Law” was so incredible that people fell on their faces to learn what was in it. We discussed this back in 2012 on “A Miracle Has Happened Tonight”. It is a natural reaction to truth after being in bondage of lies.
In the passage above, we see a description of the repaired “gate of the fountain”, and the wall of the pool by the king’s garden. Then it says “and unto the stairs that go down from the city of David”. Is this real estate they are fixing up? I don’t think so. Now see below in Isaiah -
"And he discovered the covering of Judah, and thou didst look in that day to the armour of the house of the forest. 9. Ye have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and ye gathered together the waters of the lower pool.
10. And ye have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses have ye broken down to fortify the wall."
Wow! Let’s take this a piece at a time. Isaiah is speaking here for God or God through him. He “discovered the covering of Judah”. “He” has “seen the breaches of the city of David” and there are many. David sat on the throne that Christ would soon sit on. Remember what it says about the breaches being restored:
Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
Bindeth up the breach of his people
I also found what I think we’ve been looking for – on that same Wikipedia article, at the opening paragraph, we find the etymology for the Hebrew name for “Temple in Jerusalem” –
Remember the change from genuine Hebrew to the Aramaic-post we researched on “Guess Where Yahweh Came from” – The Hebrew language has been corrupted as has our DNA for the purpose of covering up or obliterating God’s true name.
It is spelled "Zion" and Sion in the greek. I also found that Kabbalah refers to it as "Tzion", "the spiritual point from which reality emerges", on that same link above.
The etymology was interesting:
Remember Zayin? It is the one letter of the Semitic alphabets that identify a "j" like letter, and it is the letter value of 7 in Hebrew and Arabic.
The Zayin - Source
The Tzadi - Source
The Zayin and it's value have been associated with God and with Christ. the Tzadi in Hebrew looks like a backward "y" and it appears twice on the sleeves of Michael's army in the 1995 Album promotion "HIStory" Trailer.
The “Y” or “Tzadi”
Jerusalem means “he cast” peace, said from “jarrah + Shalom”. But thanks to God waking me up with this, I found:
(n.): "cylindrical vessel," early 15c., possibly from Middle French jarre "liquid measure" (smaller than a barrel), 12c., from Provençal jarra, from Arabic jarrah "earthen water vessel" (whence also Spanish jarra, Italian giarra) [Klein].
The Search Results
Jarrah + Shalom seems to mean “vessel of peace”. What cylindrical vessel had we discussed recently?
The Ephah in Zechariah 5
- Which also resembles a “flying roll” in that same chapter and book, which also resembles the description of “Bethlehem” (house of God/Jehovah/Dwelling of God) above, which also resembles the etymology of “Zion” (fortress, City of David), which also resembles the seed/DNA/Book of the Law/Word of God in Jesus, the “Word Made Flesh”, the “ladder” of Jacob, the “rod” of iron which in us the corrupted with the seed of the crooked serpent, turned into the twisted double helix with the bonds of corruption separating the letters that contain the name of God.
You should be praising God over what this means; go back and re-read Zechariah 5, and pay attention to what God does with the flying roll, and what he does with the Ephah with the woman in it. - Now, let’s take a look at Micah again. First chapter 2:
Micah is one of the minor prophets of the Bible. He is the only prophet that prophesied about the birth place of Jesus. According to Wikipedia, Micah means “Who is the Lord”. According to Etymology online –
Micah means the same thing as “Michael” – “Who is like God” or “who is like Jah”?
We quoted Micah 5:2, and I want to show you something about this particular book in the Bible. Micah also adds to Zerubbabel in Haggai and Zechariah, the explanation of the flying roll and the ephah with the woman called wickedness in the midst of it.
There was a passage in Micah 2 I wanted to show you concerning the wording of the spirit of the Lord:
"Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the Lord. 6. Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy: they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame. 7. O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the Lord straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?"
The Spirit of the Lord straitened?
Microscope Image of Unwound DNA
Moses threw down the rod: it changed into a serpent, then back into a rod when he touched it.
Jesus “restored” the withered hand. He restored sight in the blind.
If you have kept up with the last couple of blogs, “Woman and the Ephah”, “Simplicity and the Serpent” and “Making Straight Every Crooked Way”, then you will know what Micah was asking the house of Jacob in the passage above. He was asking them if the things they do are of the Lord (which they were not), “are these his (the Lord’s) doings? He asked them if the spirit of the Lord was “straightened” and if you read further down, you will find out the reason he asked this was because they spoke and prophesied from a false spirit.
Jump to Micah 5 which we posted above.
Micah 5:2 (which is our memory verse for the week): “But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose origin is from old, from ancient of days.”
We said above that this was worded as if “Bethlehem Ephrathah” (Ephrath) were a people within Judah and not a geographical place – a “condition” so to speak, just as “Israel” is a condition, not a political state (means “he that striveth with God). It does NOT mean “The Jewish People”, there WERE no Jews when Jacob was named Israel. Judah/Judas had not been born yet.
Look what else it says:
“…You shall come forth for me one who is to be a ruler in Israel, whose origin is from old, from ancient of days.”
Who’s origin is from old – ancient of days.
Smile . . . because you know who this is.
"But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings."
To make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
He is Melchizedek. He is Noah, He is Moses, He is “The Preacher” in Ecclesiastes where he tells us about the sufferings and temptations he’s been through, through time – from ancient of days. He is the Spirit, he is the “Holy Ghost”, the “Comforter”.
He is Enoch, he is Elijah, they and Melchizedek who never saw death.
There was the man who was caught up to the third heaven in 2 Corinthians 12:2, He is the apostle who would not see death until they see the son of man returning in his kingdom as Jesus said in Matthew 16:28, (some believe this was John), this was Jesus, the Christ, and this is Michael, the end times servant who was caught up to God and to his throne, and who will not return . . . in the flesh, Daniel 12: and Revelation 12: 4-6, in other words – This is the comforter, the spirit of God, the Holy Ghost who comes in Jesus’ name.
The ancient of days has been here times before, although not as a begotten son.
"No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."
"And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape."
"Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father."
“Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.”
In explanation of what God does with the flying roll, we’ve discussed in relation to what he does with the son of perdition, and what he does with those of us NOT the elect who remained pure, but all of us who have this corruption within us, even the earth and the animals. This is what will “consume the filthiness out of thee” and “destroy him with the brightness of his coming”.
The ephah is the resemblance of them in all the earth. The woman is put in the midst of the ephah – this is “wickedness” (Michael sings about her in Dirty Diana, Dangerous, and Blood on the Dance Floor amongst others).
The flying roll will enter the house of the liar and of the thief – this we assume is the wicked one or the father of lies in a human form, but it is actually all of us who have sinned. This is what will clean us should we be written in the book: See what God has done:
"And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the Lord, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men.
8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver."
An ephah with a woman named “wickedness” was taken to build the house in the land of Shinar, Babylon son of, seed of.
But a remnant of Jacob was put in the midst of many people, as dew from the Lord. The remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people.
IN THE MIDST, just as the woman was placed IN THE MIDST of the ephah.
We will be changed in an instant . . . in the blinking of an eye.
God is in us and we are in God – through Christ, as Jesus said:
"And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are."
It’s not just a pledge – it’s a condition.
It’s not just something to believe in – it’s a sacrifice of self for the purpose of God through Christ. You don’t just believe in Him . . .
The City of David, Bethlehem which was Ephrata, which is Zion, which has also been called Jerusalem is not just a place - it is a destination with different names through time, just as the spirit of God has been with different sons of men through time.
You fall in love with Him. You give up the love of THIS WORLD for HIM.
That is how you get your name written in his Book, in HIS substance and become as the children of Abraham.
The remnant of Jacob is in the midst of many people. The seed of the serpent will suffer the head wound.
The sanctuary will be cleansed. I really do want one of them to be yours
