This Is Your Wilderness
"Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."
“And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days."
“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."
I had another dream. This one came to me on the morning of the 26th of June. As with another dream, my husband of this life was with me, but we separated during the dream.
It began as I attempted to park a van against a street curb. It was night time, it was winter and the roads were icy. I was parking on a hill and I managed to park the vehicle even though it wasn’t completely straight.
We exited the vehicle and began walking across the street to a bar and grill restaurant. There were people in the street, causing mischief. It was chaotic but no one was getting hurt at this time.
We crossed the street and stepped up to the curb. A young man was twirling a wheel in a garbage bag, winding it as tightly as he could. By the time he let it go we were climbing the steps to the porch of the establishment.
At the top of the porch, this young man set the spinning wheel down against the ice-encrusted porch landing. As it spun, the friction began melting the ice. It made a whizzing sound as it bore into the ice and steam rose up from it. We were met at the door by one of the workers of the establishment and he ushered us in.
As we entered we took note that the place looked as if it had survived an earthquake. One of the long light fixtures hung from the ceiling at an angle, as if one side dropped out of the ceiling. The tables and chairs were in complete disarray and there was dust and debris being cleaned up as we entered.
We walked up to the bar and I asked the man where to go. He pointed us down a long hallway on the opposite side of the seating area, where the bathrooms would be. As we both started across to the hall, I heard the man say to my husband, “she has to go”.
I didn’t look back. I crossed the room and entered the hallway. I walked past a couple of doors and as I walked, the walls began to yield to protruding branches. Soon I was walking a pathway covered with leaves. I was on a trail in the woods. I walked a short distance in the dark and I saw something white up ahead. As I approached I could see it was the back of our cargo van just parked on the path.
I reached the cargo van and opened the door. As I began to climb up into the van and shut the door I began to awaken. As I awoke I heard a voice gently tell me, “This is your wilderness”.
I wrote this down and when I next had a chance, I searched the scriptures on the mentions of the wilderness. It has been written of as both a good place and a desolate place. It was also written of as a place of testing. Jesus was taken to the wilderness (in the Spirit), to be temped of the devil. Yet the woman in Revelation who gives birth to the man child is taken to the wilderness originally I believed, for protection. But I read it again. Why is she taken to the wilderness?
“ . . . that they should feed her there” and “. . . where she is nourished”.
In verse 6 it says she flees into the wilderness to a “where she hath a place prepared of God”. In verse 14 it says, “she might fly into the wilderness, into her place”. The second mention it says “from the face of the serpent”.
The first time she “flees” – the second mention she is given two wings of a great eagle that she might “fly into her place”.
The interesting thing about this is, when Jesus went into the wilderness to be tempted, what was the first thing he did? He “fasted”. What was the first thing the devil tempted him with? Food. The devil told him if he was the Son of God, to turn the stones into bread. What was Jesus’ response?
“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
Of that I thought upon. The other thing that struck out at me in the scripture was “her place”, as she would “fly into the wilderness, into her place”. “Your place” was the words I received the day before I had that dream. The words came on the Twenty-fifth day of June, and there was no possible way that anyone could know the dream I was going to have that next morning, the day before I had it, except God. And the words that came to me were:
“God says do not despise your place”.
When I had the dream the morning of the twenty sixth, and heard the words “this is your wilderness”, I wanted to understand what was expected of me, and it was then I searched the scriptures, and it was then I realized why I had received the message the day before and what it meant.
I do not know where my “place” will be, or if it is actually where I am now. I don’t know if I will be tempted or if I will be fed or both. Only God knows. I only know that there is no beautiful or pleasant place without God with me. There is nowhere I can be or enjoy without Him, therefore I cannot despise my place if that is where He puts me, for then I will know it is His will and if I do His will, He is with me.
The Man Child And The Throne
In Revelation 12 it also says that the man child whom the dragon is waiting to devour is caught up to God and to his throne. The man child is he that is taken out of the way in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 and 8. The word “let” means “to hinder or obstruct”. Scripture also reveals this meaning to us in Romans chapter 1.
"Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles."
This tells us that the “man child” who “let until he is taken out of the way and then that wicked is revealed” is also the same who “ . . . withholdeth, that he be revealed in his time” in 2 Thessalonians 2:6. Jude 1:9 tells us who withholds by name. And that name is given to us as the angel who withholds the devil from heaven in Revelation 12:7; and the same who is called “the great prince” in Daniel 12:1; and “your prince” in Daniel 10:21.
What does it mean to be “caught up” to God and to his throne? We see the phrase “caught up” only four times in the King James Bible. There are other “taken up” which in some passages mean the same thing.
Jesus was not “caught up”. Jesus was resurrected and ascended, because he was God “in the flesh”; he was “the Word”.
In 2 Corinthians 12, Paul talks about knowing a man fourteen years prior that was “caught up to the third heaven”, but he doesn’t name him. He said “whether in the body or out of the body, I do not know; God knows”. Paul also mentions that this was “a man in Christ” and knew him “above fourteen years ago”. This is telling us something.
We know that Elijah was “taken” up to heaven in a chariot of fire drawn by horses of fire – it says “a whirlwind” separated Elijah from Elisha in 2 Kings 2:11:
"As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind."
According to Abarim Publications, “Elijah” means “Yahweh is God” – but we know now that “Yahweh” is not God’s name, and is only a transliteration of the pronunciation of the letters used in the “Tetragrammaton”. We also know that the letter “J” did exist in the older “Syriac” and therefore “Jehovah”, not “Yahweh” is the spoken name. If we stick to “Scripture”, we see both “Eli” and “Jah” used:
“Jah” – Psalms 68:4 is the only verse using the abbreviated version of “Jehovah” and we know this to be true because it is also in all caps, as William Tyndale designated “Lord”, “Jehovah”, “Jesus” in a few verses to designate “Jehovah” where the word “Lord” is used.
"Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him."
“Eli” appears many times as part of other names in the scriptures; and Eli in the books of Samuel was a high priest of Shiloh. Remember Shiloh we learned from a previous article means “He whose it is/Tranquility” or “to be peaceful” and the word “Salem” means the same thing (place of peace). This is interesting to take note because Samuel studies under Eli, and it is Eli’s voice whom Samuel thinks is calling him but it is God. Samuel’s name taken from “shem” + “El” literally means “Name of God”. The name “Eli”, it says, means “High” or “On high”.
However, in Matthew 27:46, the name “Eli” is called out by Christ on the cross as he is dying. This verse is the ONLY one in scripture in which Jesus is quoted as calling out this name in prayer.
"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
So then what does “Elijah” mean really according to scripture?
Eli (My God) + Jah (Jehovah) = My God is Jehovah. Scripture tells is in that one verse what “Eli” means.
Jesus, for the record (Abarim Publications says) means “Jehovah will save”, and (Etymonline says) means “God is Salvation”.
Elisha (Abarim Publications) means “God is salvation” or “Salvation of My God”; and the etymology tells us “God is salvation”; “Eli” = My God + “Sha”. The suffix of Elisha, “sha” could be associated with “Shabbat” or “Sabbath”. In the name Jesus the “sus/shus” and “sha” mean the same thing according to those same two sources.
What is interesting is below that on Etymoline.com is “Shabbat” which is taken from “Sabbath”. Elisha in 1 Kings 19-16 is the son of “Shaphat”.
So then Elijah is “separated” from “Elisha” by a chariot and horses of fire, and is taken by a whirlwind up into heaven. “Separated” by fire. Elisha, if you remember the story from “1 Kings 19:19 and 2 Kings 2:14”, is given Elijah’s “mantle” and he carries on the ministry of Elijah”.
Was “Elisha” Jesus or another word for Jesus? Elijah was John the Baptist in Matthew 17:11-13. Elisha took over the mantle from Elijah; Jesus took over the mantle for John the Baptist.
Remember from “To Restore A Pure Language”, that the name “Eli” minus the “Aleph” turns it into a “lie”. The scripture in Romans 1:25 reveals those who did this.
"And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."
They changed the truth of God into a lie.
Truth = Amen – Aleph = men = death.
Eli = “My God” – Aleph = Lie
Lie – Means to tell an “untruth” to “give the lie”. In the verb it means to “deceive, belie, betray”. Lie is the root of Liability and Liable also: liable means to be "bound or obliged by law," to "bind by obligation," or to be ""exposed to" (something undesirable) ".
They changed the truth of God into a lie; the “bondage of corruption” – Romans 8:21.
What is interesting is that Elijah, like Melchizedek, has no mention of lineage or history in the Bible. He is introduced only as “Elijah the Tishbite”. The word or name “Tishbite” is mentioned only six times and in all instances as a title of sorts of Elijah. Tishbite is another one of those words from which even the Jewish sources claim they are not sure of its meaning. The closest to describing Elijah and who he was in scripture was either “The answer” or “The restoration”. The word “shiba”, according to Abarim Publications, means “restoration”.
"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things."
It is in these two verses that both the definition of Elijah’s name and his title are given. In Acts chapter one, Jesus was with whom he had chosen as apostles for forty days, teaching the things of the kingdom of God. His parting words before he ascended were:
"And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
We are told here by Jesus himself, fulfilling what John the Baptist had said, that he baptized in water, but Jesus baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire – Matthew 3:11, Luke 3:16. We also see that the Holy Ghost is the power promised them, not immediately after they are baptized in water, but when God sends him in Jesus’ name.
One more interesting note is further along during Paul’s ministry:
“do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness,"
This passage when I re-read the topic on which I posted it, reveals something else; the “time of testing” in the wilderness was long before any of the apostles lived. Paul’s much used phrase “put you in remembrance” of things the Lord had told the Israelites before any of the apostles were born reminds us of the “book of remembrance” written by the Lord for those that talked among themselves and though frequently on His Name in Malachi 3:16.
There is proof all throughout scripture that Israel is not a political nation set up in the Middle East – God put Israel where God wanted to put Israel, to protect and fulfill the covenant made to Abraham; scattered among the nations and among the Gentiles “in the midst” of many people (Micah 5:7-8), where God himself will dwell “in the midst” of us (Ezekiel 43:9, Zechariah 2:10-11).
God also promised that he will “gather” Israel (Isaiah 11:12) and “sift them” from among the nations and “not a drop” of grain will fall to the earth (Amos 9:9). And God will do it.
How he will do this the Lord explains in Ezekiel 22:15 and Zechariah 5, the whole chapter – when the “seed is yet in the barn” – Haggai 2:19.
Temples and Bodies
The Secrets of Judaism
Remember at the beginning of this writing, and on the topic “God’s Angels In Conquest” we covered a little on this; a house made with hands. Jesus spoke about it in parables and to his disciples. Paul spoke about it to the apostles and those who would go out and teach the Word.
The verses disseminating the interpretation of the temple and the “house” in scripture were covered also. A review:
"God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;"
Once you understand what the “temple” is, and what was built by those who were entrusted with the details and measurements, the beauty of what we were supposed to be, and what was done to us through deceit begins to open up.
“Nothing’s real, but all is possible, if God is on my side” – He said. Everything you think is “real” in the world is nothing but opaque overlay, including the vessels we occupy. When Paul mentioned in Acts that the Lord dwelleth NOT in temples made with hands, he was not talking about churches and synagogues with steeples and domes and stained glass – he was talking about bodies – made with hands and not made with hands. And deeper than that, with what our bodies consist – the substance. A book of the law. We see this in 2 Corinthians chapter five:
"For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:"
Paul describes the earthly house of this tabernacle being dissolved. We know from Paul’s description in Hebrews 9 of the first tabernacle “which was called the sanctuary”; and beyond the “second veil” being the “tabernacle which is the holiest of all” describes what Paul will “put off” as “Jesus showed” him in 2 Peter 1:14. In 2 Corinthians chapter five above, the “earthly house of this tabernacle” is “put off” or “dissolved” because in Hebrews 9:8, “the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:”
Further down in Hebrews chapter nine, Paul reiterates on the holy places in which Christ does not enter:
"For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:"
Holy places made with hands are only “figures of the true”. This opens evidence that there is plagiarism occurring in the law written within us. If the kingdom of God is “within you” as Jesus told us in Luke 17:21, then the “holy places made with hands” are “figures of the true” made without hands, or a “building of God”. The “book of the Law” is our substance with which bodies receive instruction to generate, build and repair our vessels. It is not the churches and granite temples people walk into to worship.
If you are still unsatisfied with that scripture interpreting “temple” and “house” made both with or without hands, we reviewed this exchange between Jesus and the Pharisees once before also. During the trial of Jesus, the Pharisees and their “witnesses” falsely accused Jesus of saying he would destroy their temple.
"And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands."
They misquoted what Jesus actually said in John chapter two:
"Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body."
Jesus spake of the temple of his body. The “false witness” includes some interesting wording in light of Paul’s teachings, doesn’t it? Paul even says we have “a building of God, an house not made with hands”.
In Genesis 6, God is repentant at creating man. “Sons of God” came down unto “the daughters of men” and “took them as wives” all that they chose, and they bear children to the sons of God. These men became “mighty men of old, men of renown”. Sons of God were not the same as daughters of men.
In Daniel 2:43 we are told of the prophecy given to Daniel by the angel that “they will mingle their seed with the seed of men” but will not “cleave to one another”. In Genesis 6, carnal acts were committed by the sons of God and in Daniel 2, mingling of seed is accomplished without carnal acts; via artificial or some other method of insemination. The “iron” and “the clay” will attempt to become one, but they cannot.
In Luke 3:38, the lineage of Christ through his mother Mary goes all the way back to Adam in the garden – Adam being a “son of God”. Mary is the daughter of “Heli” (Eli). Remember what the name “Eli” means and who Jesus called out to on the cross?
Was Adam one of the “sons of God” who came unto “the daughters of men”?
What was the first thing Adam said to God when God asked why he was hiding from Him?
Genesis 3:10 – He was naked. What they had partaken of caused their “eyes to be opened”. It caused “enmity” between the serpent’s seed and the woman’s seed. God sent both Adam and Eve from the garden. The consequences of what they had done was the beginning of the transgression, and “The Word” within them had to be protected.
Between Genesis chapter 3 and chapter six, this “knowledge” brought to the “sons of men” through the “mingling” of the sons of God with the daughters of men consisted of more than just where and how the foundations of the earth were set; It consisted of the plans and instructions for constructing “the house for the name”; the book of the law of creation, and of men.
Where did the sons of God come from? Ecclesiastes tells us that there is nothing new under the sun. What has been done will be done again. Adam and Eve are given the instructions to be “fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth”.
What was it that the “sons of God” wanted that they saw in the fleshly daughters of men? Jesus was called “the Word made flesh” in John 1:14, and the “first born from the dead” in Colossians 1:18.
Why are “men” called “the dead”? Why did Jesus tell an potential follower in Luke 9:60 “let the dead bury their dead”?
Why is Jesus the “firstborn from the dead”?
Are men “dead”?
What happens when you add the “Aleph” to “men”?
It becomes “Amen” which means “Truth”.
Why are the Masonic-based and Kabbalah religions trying to accomplish “rebuilding the star” or redemption without God at the top of the vertex – without God, “Independent” of God?
|From "What Does A Jew Want?"|
From “Babylon’s Brother”:
Emet = Truth
Amen = Truth
Met = “dead”
Men = “dead”
The “temple made with hands” by men of old, men of renown who jealously resented the light given men chosen by God; and who irresponsibly have caused the misery of the living on this earth, corrupting and weakening seed so that they could become their own gods.
Transgression Of “The Law”
A while back we explored the current version of what is being touted as the “Book of Enoch” and “The Book of Jasher”. Both are mentioned in scripture. Two verses in the Bible, one from the book of Joshua and the other from the book of 2 Samuel mention “the book of Jasher”.
"And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day."
"And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son: (Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.) The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen!"
In both the versions of the book of Enoch and the book of Jasher available online, tales of hybrid creatures appear. We don’t see the same mention of them in the Bible, nor do we see evidence of them in the mentions of those books in the Bible. But we do see mentions of “giants” in the earth and we see this:
“Satyr” is mentioned twice, in Isaiah 13 and 34. They dwell in the “waste places” and the wilderness.
“Cockatrice” is mentioned four times between Isaiah 11 and Jeremiah 8. Along with the “Basilisk” (mentioned not in the Bible), it is a serpent-like creature. We evidenced this in words now used in medicine and building names. See “Mark Of The Ancients” and “Poison of Asps”.
The experimentation with genetic material of and within various animals including humans is no secret. It goes on still today. The “DNA” of every living thing has been recorded long before you ever knew what DNA was.
The manipulation of DNA and “seed” was forbidden by God in several Biblical passages, even the manipulation of the seed of plants and animals: Leviticus 18:23, . That whole chapter of Levitucus explains that this “uncovering” of “nakedness” (the grain, not the body) and the defiling of the seed was committed before, by men before them.
"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."
"Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled."
"Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together."
The vineyard is our vessels, the “seeds sown”, the substance which is the “bare grain. In Leviticus, God commands concerning the “seed” (which remember is not the body that shall be, but the bare grain . . .)
"And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you."
Remember Ecclesiastes 1:9 and Genesis1:28: This has all been done before. The “vision” of those men of old has been attempted before. Their goal is the kingdom of God, not the earth. They have had dominion over the earth. But they have no kingdom without the throne.
God commanded them to "keep mine ordinance" and not to "commit not any of these abominable customs" and that "ye defile not yourselves therein" . . . THEREIN.
"For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God."
This is exactly what this is all about. Transgression of the law - the “Book of the Law”.
What it means:
Take note of the things you see. Recall our discussion on this? What is a “Norm”?
Craftsman’s Square and Compass
The manipulation of the law, by those who were given knowledge of it, by he who made the promise that they could “be as gods” – and what do we have today?
Death, destruction, confusion, transgression, illness, corruption of everything that was once pure, right, innocent and true.
What was once “one” with God was breached. God had to create the enmity; He had to cut them off to protect “The Name”.
Adam and Eve had their eyes opened. Was it a blessing? No. Their actions brought death and disease, confusion and veiled from God. They realized they were naked. Unprotected:
"And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons."
And they were afraid and hid from the voice of God because they were naked. God asks them "who told you that you were naked?" This was because their "eyes were opened" and they "knew".
The "Amen" in them had become "men" and Adam and Eve fell from the garden of God.
After God revealed to them the consequences of their actions, and the enmity placed between the seed of the woman and that of the serpent, what did God do?
God made them clothes to cover their “nakedness”:
"Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them."
It doesn’t say “animal skins” does it?
No . . . no it doesn’t.
"And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
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 ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 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.
And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 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."
Without the “breath of God” what is man?
What represents the “breath of God” which is the “Spirit of God”, “breath of life”?
What happens to the “Golem” when you remove the “Aleph”?
We are all “dead” without the “Spirit of God”, and there is only one way back to the “Father” –
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
