Transcript

  • 1. Zekeniam Y’sra’al ( teacher of Y’sra’al) Sherut haRitztzuy (the ministry of reconciliation) by whom we have now received the ( Atonement) Reconciliation of the Dvar HaRitztzuy Let this day be a day of reconciliation and regeneration [“EHYEH ASHER EHYEH”] ( HaYaH (He was), Howeh (He is), and Yihyeh (He will be). I AM Father and son are one
  • 2. My Memorial for generation after generation.” Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME for ever, Yâ-hwuah, Aluahiym of your father’s Abraham, Yitzchak [Isaac], and Ya’aqob [Jacob], has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial for generation to generation." and I appeared to Abraham, to Yitzchak, andto Ya’aqob as hashadday [the almighty]. and my name, Yâhwuah’s , was not well known (famous) to them. The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear? “Sola Scriptura” (the Scriptures alone is authoritative for faith)
  • 3. (in His Name) [Yah -hoo-Wah] is the Name of the Creator. (Yâhuwshúa`) is His Son [Al-u-heem - ALHYM] means "Mighty Ones“ or "Power" means Set-apart, Pure. (Qodesh) also means "Set-apart" Ruwach (Spirit) is the Ibry (Hebrew) name for His "Presence", pictured as the Counselor, Helper, and Advocate, the One Who "proceeds from the Father"
  • 4. Tehillim 27:5 For in the day of trouble He will keep me secretly in His booth. In the covering of His Tent He will hide me. On a Rock He raises me up. is for you too! Scripture speaks of a secret place where we can simply go, be alone, be protected, pray, and hear from Yâhuwshúa`. Knowing there is such a place is a matter of faith. Going back time and again, that's a matter of building a relationship. You need not have an advanced degree in any subject, need not have memorized Scripture from beginning to end, but instead be aware the Yâ-hwuah of Y’sra’al has a place for each Jew and Gentile who will open their minds and hearts to Him. Mt 6:5-8 When you pray, you shall not be as the role-fakers, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father Who is in secret, and your Father Who sees in secret shall reward you openly. In praying, don’t use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
  • 5. Therefore don’t be like them, don't you see that your Father knows what things you need before you ask Him. The truth in reality is visited in this secret place AND must be shared by those who will live or else ... they will perish ... in darkness. It is written Lu 11:33 “No one, when he has lit a Lamp, puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, that those who come in may see the Light. Tehillim. 119:105 Your Word is a Lamp to my feet, and a Light (aur) for my path. The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of Light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn’t darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of Light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of Light, as when the Lamp with its bright shining gives you Light.” The menorah is the only symbol created by Yâhuwshúa` With this in mind, heart soul and strength let us study together in the Ruwach
  • 6. And now brothers and sisters Come out of the secret place bearing light! who see it from afar. The Secret Place, here, shines a bit of light so many can see from afar. The topics we have chosen are addressed to Jew and Gentile together. We do this because that is what the Bible does. This opens the window to make more sense of what Scripture tells us! In the secret place is plain language, something simple to read. This is a mere starting place for deeper consideration. Demon processed Humankind govern the world It is said that the best politician’s around are the best Liar’s (a person experienced in the art of the science of government) Eating the tree of the [experiential] Knowledge of Good and Evil Yâhuwchânâ´n 8:44. Ye are from your father: the Accuser and ye desire to perform the lusts of your father, who was a murderer of men from the beginning
  • 7. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 1 When the accursed serpent saw ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h, it swelled its head, stood on its tail, and with eyes blood-red, acted like it would kill them. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 2 .It made straight for Chauwâ´h, and ran after her; while ’Âthâ´m standing by, cried because he had no stick in his hand with which to hit the serpent, and did not know how to put it to death. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 3. But with a heart burning for Chauwâ´h, ’Âthâ´m approached the serpent, and held it by the tail; when it turned towards him and said to him: 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 4. “O ’Âthâ´m, because of you and of Chauwâ´h, I am slippery, and go on my belly.” Then with its great strength, it threw down ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h and squeezed them, and tried to kill them. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 5. But Yâ-hwuah sent an envoy who threw the serpent away from them, and raised them up. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 6. Then the Word of Yâ-hwuah came to the serpent, and said to it, “The first time I made you slick, and made you to go on your belly; but I did not deprive you of speech. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 7. This time, however, you will be mute, and you and your race will speak no more; because, the first time My creatures were ruined because of you, and this time you tried to kill them.” 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 8. Then the serpent was struck mute, and was no longer able to speak. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 18: 9. And a wind blew down from heaven by the command of Yâ-hwuah and carried away the serpent from ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h, and threw it on the seashore where it landed in India.
  • 8. 1 ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h 59: 3], Then Sâţâ´n, great in wickedness, took his hosts and came into the cave, in the thirtieth night of the forty days and one; and he beat ’Âthâ´m and Chauwâ´h, until he left them dead. Yâhuwchânâ´n 8:44 continued and has not stood within the Truth, because there is not Truth within him. Whenever one might speak the Lie, he speaks from his own father [compare v.38], Yâhuwchânâ´n 8:38. What I have seen with My Father, I speak, but what ye have seen with your father, ye certainly do.” Yâhuwchânâ´n 8:45. Yet because I speak the Truth, ye do not believe Me. Sâţâ´n is the father of those who censor the Word, speak the Lie and seek to murder the Truth Because he is a liar and the father of him. haSatan [the anointed falsifier), rules this World ’Epheçíym 2:2. In which ye once walked, according to the age of this world, according to the ruler (Sâţâ´n) of the authority of the air, of this Raukh (spirit): of the one who now works in the sons of rebellious disbelief,
  • 9. , And the great dragon was thrown out – the ancient serpent, who is called the Accuser (diabolov ) The Aramaic translation has here “’’Akelqartsa’”. and Ha-Sâţâ´n (The Adversary), he was thrown unto the earth, and his envoys were thrown with him. Until iniquity (sin) was found in him, and the seed of rottenness spread among the messengers of the Aluahiym family Shatan / Satan – Hebrew phy means adversary, accuser. Arabic is Shaytan or Shaitan.
  • 10. Diabolos – Greek means accusatory, slanderous, malicious. Devil – Etymological Dictionary of the English Language by Ernst Klein – “Old English deofol "evil spirit," from Latin diabolus, from Greek diabolos "accuser, slanderer" (scriptural loan-translation of Hebrew satan), from diaballein"to slander, attack," literally "throw across," from dia- "across, through" + ballein "to throw." Jerome [early church father] re-introduced Satan in Latin bibles, and English translators have used both in different measures. In the Latin Vulgate, as in Greek, diabolus and dæmon were distinct, but they have merged in English and other Germanic languages.” Again the Adversary takes Him to an exceedingly high mountain, and shows to Him all the kingdoms of the world and their honor during a moment of time At the moment of time which the 8th head of the “Holy Roman Empire” shall have control of all the world. That moment is right before the Day of Yâ-hwuah. [Luwqá’ 4: 5] And the Adversary, leading Him up unto a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the earth during a moment of time And says to Him, “To You will I grant all this authority and their honor, because it has been given over to me and to whomsoever I wish to give it. [Luwqá’ 4: 6, And the Accuser said to Him: “To You will I grant all this authority and their honor, because it has been given over to me and to whomsoever I wish to give it. Disclosure 13: 2]
  • 11. And the Beast that I saw was similar to a leopard [Dâ’niyyË’’l 7: 6], Thereafter, I was gazing, and look! Another one like a leopard [came up], and on it were four wings of a fowl, on its back, and the beast had four heads, and sovereignty was granted to it. [Kingdom of Yâwâ´n ] The leopard was Greece, beginning with Alexander the Great, who conquered Daryawesh III per 1 Maccabees 1:1. Spots are what stands out about a leopard. Yirmeyahu 13:23 In fact, the Hebrew word for leopard comes from a root meaning to spot or stain as if by dripping. Rashi says it is called a leopard "because it issued decrees upon Y’sra’al [which were] spotted and varied one from the other".
  • 12. (Antiochus' policies were very different from those of his predecessors, especially Alexander, who treated the Jews with great respect). Ron Johnston and W. Slattery note that "as a predator a leopard has to be very smart to survive. It is fast, stealthy, and sneaks up on its prey and then suddenly pounces on it. Sometimes it will hide in a tree and wait for unsuspecting prey to come by underneath, and it will drop down upon it and kill it. It uses its claws to hold the prey under control and subdue it and then grasps the throat of its victim with its sharp teeth to suffocate it... After the prey is dead, it will tear it to shreds and consume it. This is comparable to Alexander the Great, who was a very smart general and possessed all of these characteristics." The leopard is the scrappiest of the big cats, and has brazen intelligence. (Most of the classical philosophers were Greek.) Wings: signifying rapid conquest. Alexander did all of his conquering within a span of only 12 years, dying very young, despite a proclamation by an oracle in Egypt that he was the son of Zeus. The four heads are the four generals to whom Alexander, having no clear heir, bequeathed his empire: Cassander, Lysimakhus, Ptolemy, and Seleukus. They ended up having four "sub-kingdoms", though the first lasted only 19 years until Cassander was killed by Lysimakhus, who in turn was killed by Seleukus. The latter three were conquered by the Romans one by one over a period of 138 years. Out of Seleukus' kingdom sprang the Antiokhus dynasty, which was a thorn in Yahuwdah’s side, precipitating the events now commemorated at the feast of Hanukkah. Sovereignty was granted: Most nations, and even some of the Jews (as 1 Maccabees tells us), accepted Hellenistic reforms as a welcome innovation, and did not oppose this takeover. It formed the foundation for many modern governments, for it spawned democracy--itself a "spotted" pattern since it is practiced in many places yet without a common head. It was never as far-reaching in Greece or Rome as it is today; commoners rarely had a say in government, and the
  • 13. Senate still did what it wanted despite the public's wishes. But it has spread and nearly taken over the world now. The Chinese counter-revolution gave credit for its victory to the "goddess of democracy". Even many Arab countries are experimenting with this style of government, though most Muslims recognize even better than much of Yahuwdah that this form of government is not fully compatible with their holy books or ours. and its feet as of a bear [Dâ’niyyË’’l 7: 5], And look! Another beast, a second, resembling a bear, [came up,] and it was lifted up onto one side, and three ribs were in its mouth between its teeth, and ones [four winds] were saying to it thus: and its mouth as a lion’s mouth The second represents Persia, which conquered Bavel. The root word for the word for "bear" in Hebrew is "to move slowly". It is not normally the way of a bear to be vicious except when starving or when derived of her cubs. It rarely devours flesh other than fish. Persia indeed conquered with very little blood shed. Much flesh was not to be devoured until Haman came along, but the flesh he expected to be devoured and that which was actually devoured were not the same. (See the book of Hadassah/Esther.) Rashi notes that, in verse 5, the word for "bear" (dov) is spelled without a "vav," and therefore could be a form of diva', the Aramaic equivalent of ze'ev (wolf), for the kingdom of Persia was also called a wolf, as it is said: YirmeYahuw. 5:6 Therefore a lion out of the forest shall kill them, a wolf of the Arabah shall destroy them, a leopard shall watch against their cities; everyone who goes out there shall be torn in pieces; because their transgressions are many, and their backsliding is increased.
  • 14. Lion: Babel. Wolf of the Arabah: a similar phrase means “evening wolf” in Habaqquq 1:8 And Tzef. 3:3, and taken this way here by the Aramaic version. Leopard, or perhaps cheetah (because speed is its characteristic): corresponds with the kingdom of Greece, Babel’s second successor, in Daniel 7:6. They have turned away too many times: or, their backslidings have broken their bones into many [pieces]—as in the previous phrase. "Therefore a lion smote them, a wolf of the deserts spoils them." Within Y’sra’al, the tribe associated with a wolf is Binyamin, from which Mordechai and Hadassah descended; thus the wolf was overcome by another wolf! As for the "three ribs inside its mouth between its teeth", Jewish Sages explained that three provinces were constantly rebelling against it [i.e., Persia] and making peace with it; sometimes it would swallow them and sometimes spit them out. That is the meaning of "in its mouth between its teeth," sometimes outside its teeth, sometimes inside (Kid. 72a). The ribs protect the heart, and, interestingly, Hoshea 13:8 I will meet them like a bear that is bereaved of her cubs, and will tear the covering of their heart. Then, like a great lion, I will devour them there; the animal of the field will rip them to pieces. Animal: literally, living thing. Yâhuwshúa` said the field represents the world Mat. 13:38 And the field is the world; and the good Seed, these are the Sons of Yâhwuah; but the darnel are the sons of Bliyyá`al (worthlessness),
  • 15. , so we could say the life of the world is what divided Ephrayim in many directions. Yâhuwshúa` said the cares of this world would make us miss what He has for us. Luke 21:34 But be attentive to yourselves, lest your hearts be burdened by a hangover and drinking, or the distractions of life, so that Day might come upon you unexpectedly; Also, compare His warning about casting our pearls before swine. Mat. 7:6 Give not that which is pure to the dogs , for they might throw them upon the manure pile; [Tâ’ówm 93] nor cast your pearls before the swine, lest they should trample upon them with their feet, and they, having turned, rend you! speaks of Yâ-hwuah’s meeting the disobedient not in Yahuwdah (as here), but Efrayim, like a bear attacking like a lion and ripping open the enclosure of the heart. But Hebraic ally, prophecies need not be limited to a single fulfillment. Often there are repeated fulfillments of the same pattern, which is one reason the specifics are often left ambiguous. In modern times, it is Britain that is regarded as the lion, and the U.S. as the eagle, and where but on the very soil of ancient Babylon is there an alliance between the two? And now there is talk of its wings being plucked--U.S. troops being withdrawn, leaving the lion there alone because of too much "bad blood" between Iraq and the Americans. Being stood up on two feet could certainly refer to the new government being established there which is often being told, "You are going to have to stand up on your own", and what is the nature of this government? Democracy--the "heart of a man", which always wants to be independent and go its own way. It is eroding the Land of Y’sra’al by allowing civil marriages (so that it does not matter who one marries), removing restrictions on the sale of pork, and allowing shops to be open on the
  • 16. Sabbath. It is interesting that the "bear" --Russia--is also trying to take a stronger hand in Middle Eastern politics again as its "cubs", former Soviet republics which are also Islamic, are being used as pawns for the interests of both superpowers and terrorists. Dâ’niyyË’’l 7: 4 The first [that came up] was like a lion and it had the wings of an eagle, I was watching until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground and it was stood upon legs like a man, and to it was given the heart of a man. Kingdom of Bâvél , One out front: first, foremost, or earliest. It was the equivalent of the statue's head in Nevukhadnetzar's dream. Arched: or, elevating. He recognized this as Bavel, specifically as represented by Nevukhadnetzar, because he had had claws and hair like eagles' feathers. He was then given a man's heart--that is, concern for the poor whom he had previously mistreated. The winged lion was also a common symbol of that land. YirmeYahuw also uses both the lion and the eagle to describe that nation YirmeYahuw 4:7; A lion [Babel] is gone up from his thicket, and a destroyer of nations; he is on his way, he is gone forth from his place, to make your Land desolate, that your cities be laid waste, without inhabitant. YirmeYahuw 48:40, As when Aluahiym overthrew Sedom and Amorah and the neighbor cities of it, says Ya-hwuah, so shall no man dwell there, neither shall any son of man sojourn therein. and Yâ-hwuah’s had said back in Deut. 28:49
  • 17. Ya-hwuah will bring a nation against you from far, from the end of the earth, as the eagle flies; a nation whose language you shall not understand; that if Y’sra’al turned away from Yâ-hwuah’s , He would send a nation as swift as an eagle to take us into exile. Though he would be told (v. 17) that each beast represented a king(dom), since this vision came to Daniy’al before the events of chapter 5 (see verse 1 of the present chapter), he would still not yet have known the identity of the nation that would follow Bavel: Tâ’ówm 7 Yâhuwshúa` said, “Happy is the lion that the human will eat, so that the lion becomes human, though cursed is the human that the lion will eat, though the lion becomes human.” and the dragon gave to it his own power 2 Thessaloníkeans 2: 9, For the Secret of Lawlessness is already working, only he is restraining presently until from the midst he shall have been made Disclosure 13: 14 And it misleads those who dwell upon the earth by means of the signs, which it was granted to it to work before the first Beast, This means the Pope orders non-elect to manufacture a clone of the Leader of the Nazi H.R.E. to lead it in its return: Adolph Hitler! Why else have they searched so hard for him?
  • 18. “Until when will you wander, O apostate daughter? Indeed Yâ-hwuah will create a new thing on the earth: a non-virginal woman will bring back a warrior!” saying to those who dwell upon the earth to make an image to the Beast that has the wound of the sword and lived! and his own throne and great authority! 2: 13 I discern where you dwell, at the place where the Throne of the Adversary is; This throne was known as the throne of Zeus. Since Zeus, the head daemon, is the Adversary according to this verse, and Diós is a specific name of Zeus, to whom does the name Diós belong? Yet you do strongly retain My name, and you did not deny the persuasion of Me, even during the days in which you were exhibited Greek: “resisted”, a derivative of Strong’s #4098, antipípto. This verse, from here on, is corrected based on the Aramaic translation, accounting for the Greek translation and that in `Ivríyth (Hebrew) “testimony” = “witness”. with My trustworthy testimony. Because of all, My trustworthy testimony which was with you was allowed to perish. *Archaeological note: The Throne of Zeus, an altar now on exhibit in Berlin at the Nationalgalerie, was in Pérgamos. See http://www.everythingimportant.org/altarOfZeus] and great authority!
  • 19. All these things I will give to You if, falling down, You prostrate Yourself in homage to me!” The Word of Yâ-hwuah’s came again to me, saying, Yechezqe’l 28:2 Son of Adam, tells the ruler of Tsor, Thus says the Master Yâ-hwuah’s: Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of Aluahiym, in the midst of the seas; yet you are man, and not Al, though you did set your heart as the heart of Aluahiym— Ruler: the term is one also used of the HaMâshíyach, and denotes a deputy or secondary ruler—one out in front but who is not actually in charge. But because Yâhuwshúa `was content to do His Father’s bidding, He was given the privilege that this ruler—and the one who led the shadow government behind him—could only pretend to. And He will give it to those who, like Him, overcome the temptation to exalt self and focus instead on serving one another. Fall from ruler (messenger of light) to King ( earth Raukh) Disclosure 12: 9. And the great dragon was thrown out – the ancient serpent, who is called the Accuser (diabolov ) and Ha-Sâţâ´n (The Adversary), who misleads the whole earth – he was thrown unto the earth, and his envoys were thrown with him. This is the Devil, and his demons, who search the airways for victims, here is the earth bound demons….. yet the will to sin or not lies with each human, tune into Yâ-hwuah’s word and let no space be left for Hasatan and his minions Yechezqe’l 28:3 Behold, are you indeed wiser than Daniy’al? Can no secret be kept hidden from you?
  • 20. Daniy’al: their contemporary, who apparently, even before the incident of the handwriting on the wall and the lions’ den, had a reputation for wisdom, possibly due to his interpretation of Nevukhadnetzar’s dream. But his name means “Daniy’al: their contemporary, who apparently, even before the incident of the handwriting on the wall and the lions’ den, had a reputation for wisdom, possibly due to his interpretation of Nevukhadnetzar’s dream. But his name means Aluahiym is my Judge”. This ruler had judged his own heart to be wise, but it would have been wiser to allow Yâ-hwuah’s to judge his heart. Aluahiym is my Judge”. This ruler had judged his own heart to be wise, but it would have been wiser to allow Yâ-hwuah’s to judge his heart. Yechezqe’l 28:4 By your wisdom and by your understanding you have gotten yourself riches, and have gotten gold and silver into your treasures; Yechezqe’l 28:5 by your great wisdom and by your traffic you have increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches— Yechezqe’l 28:6 Therefore thus says the Master Yâ-hwuah’s : Because you have set your heart as the heart of Aluahiym, Yechezqe’l 28:7 Therefore, behold, I will bring foreigners on you that strike terror on the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, and they shall defile your brightness. What could be a better description of the terrorist attacks being perpetrated against the greatest trading nations of today? But we could also apply it to the one who tried to rebuild Babylon. Yechezqe’l 28:8
  • 21. They shall bring you down to the pit; and you shall die the death of those who are slain, in the heart of the seas . Pit: or, place of humiliation. Compare Z’kharyah 9:3. Tsor built herself a stronghold, and heaped up silver like the dust, and fine gold like the mire of the streets. Siege-entrenchment: Heb., matzur, a play on the name Tzur. Fine gold: the poetic use of a word meaning sharp, diligent, strict, or a moat or trench. Z’kharyah 9:4. Behold, Ya-hwuah will dispossess her, and He will strike her power in the sea; and she will be devoured with fire. Though Tzur was conquered on numerous occasions (most notably by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C.E.) and revived after each conqueror’s decline, there was no recorded destruction during the time frame of this writing (just before 500 B.C.E.). This is sandwiched between references to the dawning of the Millennial Kingdom of Messiah, so it should be read as relating to that time. Yechezqe’l 28:9 Will you yet say before him who kills you, I am Aluahiym? but you are man, and not Al, in the hand of him who wounds you. Yechezqe’l 28:10-11 You shall die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, says the Master Yâ-hwuah’s. Moreover the Word of Yâ-hwuah’s came to me, saying, Yechezqe’l 28:12
  • 22. Son of Adam, take up a lamentation over the king of Tsor, and tell him, Thus says the Master Ya-hwuah: You seal up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. King: as contrasted with the “ruler” or mere “prince” of v. 2, who was, on the human level, probably actually a king as well? But he was the “son” of the Raukh that was behind him. Compare the Princes of Persia and Greece that an archangel had to fight. Dan. 10:13, 20 'But the ruler of the kingdom of Paras stood in opposition to me [for] twenty-one days, but then came Mikha'el, one of the foremost rulers, came to my aid while I was detained there with the royalty of Persia. Paras: i.e., Persia. Mikha'el means "Who is like Aluahiym?" Was detained: the term has the sense of overflowing, i.e., staying longer than he should have. Royalty: the plural form of the word for "king". Rashi says his opposition was with the intent "to battle with me in heaven by requesting an extension for the kingdom for Persia to enable them to subjugate you (Israel)." Is this some kind of spiritual prince that operates behind the physical government of a nation? Verse 20 has a parallel description of the ruler of Greece. (More about this at verse 21.) But it may be a very ordinary thing being said, though significant; the fact that Koresh was now in charge of the empire may have been what released him to continue his journey. In other words, each earthly regime has spiritual “princes” behind it. This one is a king, because he is the mastermind behind them all. This spirit of the one who exalted himself passed also to Tzur’s conqueror, Bavel Dan. 10:20 So he said, "Do you [now] understand why I have come to you? And now I will go back to do battle with the ruler of Paras. When I have gone out, then the ruler of Yawan will arrive. He only hints at why he has come. Yawan is Greece. As he learned in 8:21 and as he has seen in all of the preceding dreams and visions, Greece is the great power that will follow Persia in the series of world empires. Down the line, it turned out to be much more cruel against Israel than Persia.
  • 23. Dan. 4:30 "The king responded by saying, 'Isn't this Bavel the great, which I have built for the house of the kingdom by the prevailing of my strength and for the honor of my majesty?' For the house of the kingdom: possibly meaning its seat, in the sense of the capital. One Jewish tradition says that he had squandered his revenue on building great buildings rather than storehouses for the poor, as Daniel had advised him to do. The honor of my majesty: Archaeologist Rawlinson wrote that nine-tenths of all the bricks amid the ruins of Babylon are stamped with his name. Though its human king did ultimately repent. Seal up: i.e., you close the book on the subject; nothing more can be added to it. Pattern: in the sense of something that can be measured, and thus imitated or held up as a paradigm. (43:10) I.e., the mold was broken because this specimen was so perfect: Yechezqe’l 28:13 You were in Eden, the garden of Aluahiym; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz, emerald, chrysolite, onyx, jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and beryl. The workmanship of your percussion instruments and your socketcavities were right within yourself; on the day that you were created they were securely fastened and made ready. Nine stones compared with Yâhuwshúa`(High Priest) Twelve In Eden: This tips us off to the fact that we are dealing with something much more ancient than literal Tsor alone—a spirit that inhabited and motivated it, but which existed long beforehand. Socket-cavities: i.e., receptacles in which to mount the precious stones or musical instruments, but the same term is used as the root for the word “female” in Hebrew. This gives us a clue about the role the antitype of this king played, especially as relates to the Phoenicians, from which Izebel came. Izebel insisted that her husband Ahab, could do anything he pleased since he was the king, but she was the real
  • 24. mastermind behind his actions. The spirit of Izebel, in which the woman dominates and usurps the role of the man, is resurging at full force in our day. Why? When we compare the other lists of these same jewels throughout Scripture, we see them as bedecking Yâ-hwuah’s’ Bride Disclosure. 21:19-20 And the foundations of the wall of the city are adorned with every precious stone: the first foundation – with Jasper [clear & multicolor] the second – with Sapphire [clear] the third – with Chalcedony [misty gray clouded with blue, yellow, or purple] the fourth – with Emerald [transparent green] the fifth – with Ruby and Onyx [red & white] the sixth – with Ruby [transparent red] the seventh – with Chrysolite [golden] the eighth – with Beryl [pale green] the ninth – with Topaz [transparent sky blue] the tenth – with Chrysoprasus [green-yellow] the eleventh – with Jacinth [dark blue] the twelfth – with Amethyst. [violet] . So this is the clothing of Yâ-hwuah’s bride. Yet who, other than Adam and Hawah, was in Eden? None other than the serpent. You were created: a phrase designed to put in his place the one who wanted to be “like Aluahiym”. YashaYahuw 14:12-14 How you have fallen from the heavens, Hëylä´l (Day-star [luminary orb]), son of the dawn! You were cast down to the earth, you who prostrated the heathen masses! And you, who said in your heart, “The heavens I shall ascend, from over the stars of the Power shall I raise my throne, and I shall sit on the mount of meeting on the recesses of the north! I shall ascend over the heights of the thundercloud; I shall make myself resemble the Most High.”
  • 25. Yechezqe’l 28:14 You were the anointed keruwb who overshadows: and I permitted you to come to the restricted mountain of Aluahiym; you have walked about freely right among the stones of fire. Overshadows: protects and screens by shutting off access to the throne, but the term also means to weave together or intertwine, just as the two kh’ruvim atop the Ark of the Covenant, symbolically overshadowing the place where Ya-hwuah sat, were actually from one piece of gold. This again suggests the role of a bride and groom. Yâhuwshúa` may have been represented by the other kh’ruv, since the allegorical level of Ruth 3:12; "Now indeed it is true that I am one qualified to be a kinsmen-redeemer. However, there is another kinsman who is more closely related than I. Ruth 4:6 Then the near kinsman said, "I cannot redeem it for myself, because I don't want to jeopardize my own inheritance. You redeem for yourself what it is my right to redeem, because I am not able to redeem it." “My own inheritance” would have to be divided between his previous children and Ruth's, who would legally be Machlon's heirs. The land was valuable to him, but he would also need to be responsible for another. So the land he would buy would not benefit his own existing children in any way. It would actually decrease his wealth. Adam could not be our redeemer, as he had his own sin to pay for. The Counterfeit Messiah, though initially appearing benevolent, shows himself to be selfish when put to the test. Therefore, Yâhuwshúa`, who IS able to pay our debt and has an inheritance to spare, becomes our Bridegroom as well as our Kinsman Redeemer (Ephesians
  • 26. 5:23). Naomi represents Yahuwdah, which means “praise”. HaSatan is more than willing to have praise for himself again, just as before creation. But this Northern Kingdom was another story: the wife of a dead man, without covenant, corrupted, unclean, it would besmirch his reputation. Yet Yahuwdah cannot be redeemed alone; all Israel must be bought back by one Redeemer, and Yâhuwshúa willingly went after the Lost Sheep of the House of Y’sra’al as well as those who had stayed close to the covenant. The plot thickens! Another man legally had the first option on fulfilling this role. The sin of Adam, our nearer kinsman, stands legally in the way of Yâ-hwuah’s love, but like Esau, this elder brother of Yâhuwshúa `lost his rights, so Yâhuwshúa`, who, like Adam, is called Yâ-hwuah’s Son, fulfilled the covenant that Adam broke. But there is another who goes back even further: haSatan, the King of Tyre (Yechezqe’l 28), who owned the earth before the creation of Adam indicates that they both have the right of atonement. Stones of fire: probably referring to the brazen altar and the altar of incense—i.e., a priestly role. It would appear, then, that the unfallen haSatan was also the first high priest before Ya-hwuah! Yechezqe’l 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until unrighteousness was found in you. Unrighteousness: choosing to be rich rather than continuing to be the pattern (v. 12) that revealed Ya-hwuah to the rest of the created order. Therefore another pattern needed to be made. The “broken mold” had to be recast so that this role could be filled again. Adam was created in Yâ-hwuah’s image, and, under the influence of this same “king”, also failed in that role. Ya-hwuah raised up Abraham and from him, Ysra'al, to restore what Adam broke, and through Ysra'al came the Hekal, which chapter 43 calls a pattern— the only other time this same Hebrew term is used in Scripture. So what the Hekal represents on earth is what haSatan used to be. ??? Yâhuwshúa` identified His body with the Hekal Yochanan 2:21, and this is the Scriptural authority by which He could do so. Of course, His body does not mean only His physical body, but those of whom He is the spiritual Head.
  • 27. Eph. 5:30 because we are members of His body, from His flesh and from His bones. Yechezqe’l 28:16 By the abundance of your traffic they filled the midst of you with violence, and you have sinned: therefore I have cast you as profane out of the mountain of Aluahiym; and I have destroyed you, covering keruwb, from the midst of the stones of fire. Here He reverts briefly to speaking about the city itself. But indeed Yâhwuah’s bejeweled bride is also described as a city in Rev. 21. HaSatan continued to have a “seat” in a series of cities such as Babel, Athens, Rome, etc. Disclosure. 2:13 1I discern where you dwell, at the place where the Throne of the Adversary is; yet you do strongly retain My name, and you did not deny the persuasion of Me, even during the days in which you were exhibited with My trustworthy testimony. Because of all, My trustworthy testimony which was with you was allowed to perish. So Tsor is the civic embodiment of a bride deposed because she thought it was beneath her dignity to obey: Yechezqe’l 28:17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness: I have cast you to the ground; I have laid you before kings, that they may inspect you. “She” made an excellent wife until she started using her gifts for her own gain instead of for her Husband’s sake. Compare the story of Queen Washti Esther 1:9. Washti the queen also prepared a women’s banquet [in the] royal house that belonged to King Akhashwerosh. Esther 1:10. On the seventh day, when the king’s heart was [feeling] pleasant with wine, he told M’human, Biztha, Kharbona, Bigtha, as well as Abagtha, Zethar, and
  • 28. Kharkas, the seven eunuchs who waited on King Akhashwerosh in his presence, Esther 1:11. to bring Washti the queen into the king’s presence with the royal crown to let the people and the princes see her beauty, because she was fine to look upon. Esther 1:12. However, Queen Washti refused to come in at the word of the king by the hand of the eunuchs, and the king was very displeased, and his anger was lit within him. The king: According to rabbinic tradition, whenever the text simply says “the king” without direct reference to his name, we can draw inferences about the King of the Universe, Ya-hwuah, as well. Here we see the pre-Adamic history of the creation relived, for we know that haSatan was in the most exalted position, below only Ya-hwuah Himself, yet then let her beauty go to her head and was cast down to being an “ordinary citizen”. (Y’hezq’El/Ezek. 28:12-19) Follow this theme through the story. Esther 1:13. And the king said to the wise men who knew the times (because such was the king’s custom in the presence of all custom and legal proceedings, Esther 1:14. and the ones nearest to him were Karshna, Shethar, Admatha, Tharshish, Meres, Marsna, [and] M’mukhan, the seven princes of Persia and Maday, who sat in the first place in the kingdom), Esther 1:15. “By custom, what should be done with Queen Washti, on account of the fact that she has not carried out what King Akhashwerosh said by the hand of the eunuchs?” By custom: already we see how the kingdoms in Nevukhadnetzar’s dream Daniel 2:31ff are becoming more and more inferior with each succession. This king does not make a decision until he hears what is customary. There is much to be
  • 29. said for legal precedent, and Ya-hwuah Himself does only what is according to His own Word, but Persia’s is not as strong a leader as Babylon had. Esther 1:16. So M’mukhan said, in the presence of the king and the princes, “Not in regard to the king alone has Washti the Queen done perversely, but in regard to all the princes and all the people who are in all of King Akhashwerosh’a provinces, Esther 1:17. “because word [about] the queen will go out to all the women, causing them to hold their husbands in contempt when they are told that King Akhashwerosh said to bring Washti the queen into his presence, but she did not come in. Esther 1:18. “And this day the princesses of Persia and Maday who have heard of the matter of the queen will say [the same] to all the king’s princes, and [there will be] plenty of contempt and provocation. So we surmise that haSatan is Yâ-hwuah’s adversary because “she” was in the position of Yâ-hwuah’s first bride, but she coveted His position. She was meant to be under authority. When tempting human beings, the serpent approached Hawah first, for when out from under her husband’s covering, she was more vulnerable. This disrupted the structure of human society from the start. After this Ya-hwuah clearly consigned her to being under her husband’s rule so that some semblance of order could be restored. B'Rayshiyth. 3:16 To the woman He said, "I will greatly increase your pain and your [frequency of] conception; in pain you will bear sons, and your husband shall be your desire, but he will have authority over you. Increase: since, due to the presence of death, mankind would now have to replace itself each generation, not just fill the earth once. It may be that before this, she would have only been capable of conceiving once a year rather than once a month. Her desire for her husband and for children would overrule her fear of this pain. But this word for "desire" can mean "ambition";
  • 30. she would strive for dominance over him--for his position--but would not achieve it. She chose to use her inclination toward her husband to oppose him rather than help him, so now the balance is tipped against her. Today’s effort to put women on equal footing with their husbands must take this into account. She knew first that she was naked, and yet still chose to pass this on to him, and she has a price to pay for that. But 1 Tim. 2:15 says the woman's salvation comes through her bearing children, so the remedy is included right in the chastening. Simply overlooking it could never demonstrate Yâ-hwuah’s mercy as well as this, for this actually gave her a way to learn to overcome the other desire that had gotten her into this initial trouble. We should not look at this as a punishment, but as for her protection, because if she continued to listen to everything that whispers, she would get us all into even more trouble. She was too naïve because of her emotional tendencies, so Ya-hwuah put her husband in charge. Since Yâhuwshúa` uses “heaven” as a shortened form of “the Kingdom of heaven”, haSatan being cast down Disclosure . 12:10 I heard a great voice in the heavens, saying, “Today comes Yashuat Aluheinu, His Power, His Reign, and the Authority of of His Mashiyach; Now have come the deliverance and the power and the reign of our Aluhiym, and the authority of His Mashiyach ...] The seventh messenger sounded, and great voices in heaven followed, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Sovereign, and of His Mashiyach. He shall reign into the Ages and beyond!” ..... because You have taken Your great power, and reigned. ]".. Dani'al 13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, there came with the clouds of heaven One like to a Son of Adam/Enosh, and He came even to the Ancient of Days, and He was brought near before Him. 14 And there was given Him dominion, and esteem, and a reign, that all the peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His reign that which shall not be destroyed.
  • 31. would correlate with his/her being bound for 1,000 years during the Kingdom. Disclosure. 20:3 and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were finished. After this, he will be released but for a short time. YashaYahuw 24:21 It shall happen in That Day that Ya-hwuah shall punish the army of the high ones on high, and the sovereigns of the earth on the earth. 24:22 They shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison; and after many days shall they be visited. Yechezqe’l 28:18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your traffic, you have profaned your sanctuaries; therefore have I brought forth a fire from the midst of you; it has devoured you, and I have turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all those who see you. Yechezqe’l 28:19 All those who know you among the peoples shall be astonished at you: you have become a terror, and you shall nevermore have any being. Compare YashaYahuw 14:4-17, where the same judgment comes on Babel, to which Tsor’s scepter was passed.] Yechezqe’l 28:20 The Word of Ya-hwuah came to me, saying, Yechezqe’l 28:21 Son of Adam, set your face toward Tsiydown, and prophesy against it,
  • 32. Tsiydown was Tsor’s sister city, from which Izebel came, and where she was princess. (1 Kings 16:31) Its name means “the greatest hunter”—undoubtedly named in honor of Nimrod B'Rayshiyth 10:8-9, Kuwsh became the father of Nimrowd. He profaned and was the first mighty hero upon the earth. 10:9 He was a mighty hunter in the face of Ya-hwuah. Therefore it is said, “ He is just like Nimrowd, a mighty hunter in the face of Ya-hwuah.” who began the rebellion against Ya-hwuah after the Deluge in the original Babel. Profaned: Aluahiym's name; or "made a new start" as in 9:20. The Sumerian ideograph Nin-mirud ("son of rebellion", from the same root as Merodach) can also be read Nin-girshu, possibly the root for "Nigeria", whose Yoruba tribe has a legend that the "Kishites" (Kushites?) moved into Africa from Mesopotamia (Shinar). Other sons of Kush did settle Africa, especially Ethiopia. [Before Ya-hwuah: this can either mean “in Yâ-hwuah’s presence” or “in Yâhwuah’s face”, and which way we will go depends on our priorities and our choices. Nimrowd was not in Yâ-hwuah’s presence (for, as we will see it with Esau in chapter 26, being a hunter precluded this, for he was a man who lived for his belly. Rather, he was “in Yâ-hwuah’s face, i.e., in defiance of Him. .... Tradition says Shem killed Nimrod for his sins, and a myth began that he was resurrected as his own son, born of his wife and the sun god after Nimrod's death, and this grew into many pagan customs worldwide, most notably that of "mourning for Tammuz" (YchezqË. 8:14), who incidentally was born December 25. The proof she cited that “the father could be the son” was that an evergreen tree had grown out of the stump of one cut down, explaining the connection between that date and evergreen trees that continues to our own day. Statues and paintings of this Semiramis with her son were later called the Madonna and "mother of God"--another example of how Constantine painted a thin veneer of Christianity over existing paganism, thus allowing it to continue. It predated Christianity by over 2,000 years.
  • 33. Yechezqe’l 28:22 and say, Thus says the Master Ya-hwuah: Behold, I am against you, Tsiydown; and I will be esteemed in the midst of you; and they shall know that I AM Ya-hwuah, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and I will be treated as in a category of My own. Yechezqe’l 28:23 For I will send pestilence into her, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall fall in the midst of her, with the sword on her on every side; and they shall know that I AM Ya-hwuah. But as Washti had to be replaced by another queen (Hadassah), there was a vacancy in the position of Yâ-hwuah’s bride. Who was chosen to fill it? Our clue, again, is the stones listed in v. 13. Notice that they are grouped in threes, just as on the High Priest’s breastplate, where they represent each of the tribes of Ysra'al. Shemot 28:17-20 You shall set in it settings of stones, four rows of stones: a row of ruby, topaz, and beryl shall be the first row; and the second row a turquoise, a sapphire, and an emerald; and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; and the fourth row a chrysolite, an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be enclosed in gold in their settings. Tsor is missing some jewels in v. 13 from those on the High Priest’s breastplate (the entire third row, representing Gad, Asher, and Yissachar), showing that indeed haSatan comes up short of the perfection found more fully in Ysra'al, as Hadassah’s beauty outshone Washti’s. Two of these three are children of Leah’s handmaid and the son Leah bore when she hired Ya'aqob with her son’s mandrakes.
  • 34. This correlates with the nearer kinsman not wanting responsibility for Ruth as well as Naomi because it would reduce the inheritance his own children received. Ruth 4:6 Then the near kinsman said, "I cannot redeem it for myself, because I don't want to jeopardize my own inheritance. You redeem for yourself what it is my right to redeem, because I am not able to redeem it." “My own inheritance” would have to be divided between his previous children and Ruth's, who would legally be Machlon's heirs. The land was valuable to him, but he would also need to be responsible for another. So the land he would buy would not benefit his own existing children in any way. It would actually decrease his wealth. Adam could not be our redeemer, as he had his own sin to pay for. The Counterfeit Messiah, though initially appearing benevolent, shows himself to be selfish when put to the test. Therefore, Yâhuwshúa`, who IS able to pay our debt and has an inheritance to spare, becomes our Bridegroom as well as our Kinsman Redeemer (Ephesians 5:23). Naomi represents Yahuwdah, which means “praise”. HaSatan is more than willing to have praise for himself again, just as before creation. But this Northern Kingdom was another story: the wife of a dead man, without covenant, corrupted, unclean, it would besmirch his reputation. Yet Yahuwdah cannot be redeemed alone; all Israel must be bought back by one Redeemer, and Yâhuwshúa` willingly went after the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel as well as those who had stayed close to the covenant. Yâhuwshúa`, on the other hand, was willing to redeem all twelve tribes of Ysra'al. YashaYahuw 49:6 And He said, “It is a small thing for You to be My Servant for restoring the tribes of Ya`aqóv and to bring back the protected ones of Yisrâ’Ä´l [144,000], so I will also give You for a Light of the heathen masses that You might bring My deliverance even unto the end of the earth!””
  • 35. One of these three that haSatan lacked, Asher, is the tribe within whose land Tsor was situated Yâhuwshúa` 19:24, In that Day, Yisrâ’Ä´l shall be third to Entrenchments (Mitsráyim) and to Successful One (’Ashshúwr), a blessing in the midst of the Land, and because this tribe did not dispossess them as they were told, they became a thorn in their sides. Num. 33:55 “But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then those you let remain of them will be as pricks in your eyes and as thorns in your sides, and they will harass you in the land in which you dwell. The Raukh of Izebel was allowed into Ysra'al, and the result was the killing of the prophets—the vengeance of an ex-wife scorned. This motif explains why haSatan hates Yâ-hwuah’s chosen people so vehemently. We walk in the Raukh of AliYahuw (the restoration of all things, Mal. 4:5; For though all nations may walk, each in the name of its Aluahiym, we will walk in the Name of Ya-hwuah our Aloha to eternity and beyond Mat. 17:11 And Yâhuwshúa` responding, said to them: “’ÄliyYâ´huw indeed does come first and shall prepare all things [Mal’âkhíy 3: 1 ], in order that he should suffer and be made utterly nothing of , how it has also been written about the Son of ’Âthâ´m. [Márquwç 9: 12] and what will oppose us is the Raukh of Tsor (Jezebel). But her days are numbered (compare Disclosure. 12:12
  • 36. Due to this, rejoice ye heavens and those who tabernacle within them! Hówy to the earth and the sea, because the Accuser is come down towards you, having great fury, understanding that he has a short time!” 28:24 There shall be no more a pricking brier to the House of Ysra'al, nor a hurting thorn of any that are around them, that did contempt to them; and they shall know that I am the Master Ya-hwuah. Thorns are the direct result of the curse Ya-hwuah put on mankind after we sinned and did not take responsibility for it. B'Rayshiyth. 3:18 "And it shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you shall eat the grasses that are on the surface of the field. It was not Adam that was cursed, but the ground, and he was then thrown down to it. But even the thorns seem more to be a statement about the course nature must now take, rather than a curse in themselves. They result when an area once cultivated by man is abandoned again to nature. (Custance) Aluahiym’s mercy does shine through in that He did not rescind provision of food, but it would no longer come with the ease or joy he knew in the garden. Barley and wheat, the staples of the Y’sra’alite diet, are actually grasses—from the ground rather than from the trees. The first two pilgrimage festivals actually focus on these two grains; only the third focuses on fruit, for Sukkoth is about the healing of the nations (which lies in the leaves of the tree of life) and is thus a foretaste of being back in the Garden. In the days to come, the tree of life will bear fruit year-round; now we are only given one season to remember Eden. The rest of the time we are reminded of the curse so we can deal with its causes. Because of our trading (which was how the King of Tzur, who was reminiscent of haSatan, profaned the whole world, according to Y’hezq’el 28:16), we are able to have any fruit at any time of the year that we wish, perpetuating the myth that we are “like Aluahiym”. Targum Pseudo-Jonathan infers that Adam interposed at this point and asked Ya-hwuah to let him grow grain by means of agriculture rather than just foraging, so that a distinction would still be made between humans and animals.
  • 37. So this scenario bespeaks the partial rescinding of the curse during the Kingdom Compare Yashayahuw 11:9 They shall not be harmed nor destroy in all the Mountain of My pureness, because the Land shall be full of the recognition of Yâ-hwuah, like the waters are a covering for the sea. paralleling Ya-hwuah ’s shielding Goshen from the worst of the plagues of Mitsrayim. Shemot. 9:26; 10:23 The Mashiyach is called Ysra'al in one sense YashaYahuw 49:1 “Listen, O countries to Me, and pay attention, O congregations: From a very distant time, Yâ-hwuah, from before the womb, did invoke Me, from before the innards of My mother [He did make remembrance of My name; YashaYahuw 49:2. And He sets it in My mouth like a sharpened sword; He has hidden Me within the shadow of His hand, and He makes Me into a polished arrow – He has concealed Me into His quiver. YashaYahuw 49:3. And He said to Me, “You are My Servant, Yisrâ’Ä´l, which within You I shall obtain honor for Myself!” YashaYahuw 49:4. But I, I said, “I have toiled in vain for nothing, and futilely I did exhaust My strength, yet evidently My legal due is Yâ-hwuah, and My Work is My mighty Ones.” [
  • 38. YashaYahuw 49:5. So now says Yâ-hwuah, Who fashions Me from a womb for a Servant, for Him to return Ya`aqóv to Him, and Yisrâ’Ä´l to Him, “He is brought in.” So I obtained honor for Myself in the eyes of Yâ-hwuah, and My mighty Ones, He is My Strength. YashaYahuw 49:6. And He said, “It is a small thing for You to be My Servant for restoring the tribes of Ya`aqóv and to bring back the protected ones of Yisrâ’Ä´l [144,000], so I will also give You for a Light of the heathen masses that You might bring My deliverance even unto the end of the earth!”” He was brought forth by Y’sra'al Disclosure. 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown unto the earth, he persecuted the wife that brought forth the Male. and those He gathers form the substance of Ysra'al. We, His people, are to complete the Body of which He is the Head. Compare His attitude to that of haSatan here—as well as Chawwah’s and Adam’s. B'Rayshiyth 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any living creature of the field that Yahwuah Aluahiym had made. And he said to the woman, "Although Aluahiym has said, 'You may not eat from any tree of the garden'…" Serpent: literally whisperer, practicer of divination (one able to cast a spell). Whispering catches the attention better even than shouting, for it hints at intimacy and being taken into one's confidence. The word is also related to the word for bronze and a bejeweled appearance--and indeed, it was a dazzlingly impressive creature at that time (Y'hezq'el/Ezek. 28:13ff). Another animal speaks in Numbers 22:28-31, but here the woman does not seem surprised; in an uncursed world there may have been nothing unusual about talking animals, though if we place too much on whether this was literal or
  • 39. not, we may miss the main point. Apparently this talking snake was jealous of mankind's being given the rulership of earth which Heylel (Lucifer) had once possessed. The serpent's craftiness is shown in its reframing of the prohibition in an exaggerated form, throwing her off balance and influencing her to overreact. It appears to be leading up to the suggestion they that can make an exception to the commandment. But what we miss in English is the interesting play on words, for the word for "naked" in the previous verse is from the same root as "crafty" here. The serpent had indeed lost a far more glorious covering than mankind had (Y’hezq’el 28). Its covering is described just like that of the New Yerushalayim (Rev. 21), which is described as Yâhwuah’s bride, as Israel also is. Humanity, at first, and later Israel in particular, is thus a replacement for a rebellious bride, which is why haSatan was so eager to have Adam and Chawwah disqualified from this position. We can sense the bitterness in "her" leading statements that reflect "her" own experience of Yahwuah's ill will. B'Rayshiyth 3:2. But the woman told the serpent, "We may eat from the trees of the garden, B'Rayshiyth 3:3. "but from the tree which is in the center of the garden, Alaugiym has said, "You shall not eat from it, nor shall you reach out to touch it, or else you'll die." She interrupted the serpent to clarify the ambiguous “any”, which in Hebrew can also mean “all”. She had never thought to judge whether Yâhwuah’s words are true or not, but the serpent presents as from Ya-hwuah what He never said. She denies it, but it puts doubt in her mind as to whether that is really what Ya-hwuah said. She added a "fence" to what Aluahiym said—generally a healthy practice which can keep us one step away from sinning, but which can breed discontentment with Aluahiym’s protective commands if we forget all that we really are offered, and seek greater fulfillment through going outside the bounds He really has set. It was the man’s job to guard, so Adam was probably the one who had added the fence, and she understood his ruling to be from Aluahiym. This fence, though, may have been counterproductive, since, as she did not die when she touched the fruit, she may have thought there would be no harm in eating it either. It is in the center, yet somehow it is not included among the trees of the
  • 40. garden. The tabernacle, likewise, would later be an "off-limits" zone in the center of the camp of Y’sra’al. B'Rayshiyth 3:4. And the serpent said to the woman, "You won't really die as in 'death', Targum Pseudo-Jonathan adds, “But every craftsman hates his fellow craftsman” and explains that the serpent was slandering its creator—that is, casting the truth in such a light as to make His motives look evil: “He doesn’t want you to have what He has! You can be Aluahiym if you overcome these chains He has put on you! Do what your heart tells you!” It plays on her envy and selfishness, and we have been fed this lie many times since. B'Rayshiyth 3:5. "because Aluahiym knows that in the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like Aluahiym--[intimately] knowing [both] right and wrong. This is both a deadly truth and a lie at the same time. He deceived her with the truth. While Ya-hwuah "understands" evil better than anyone (since it is anything that is contrary to His nature), He has never experienced it in the way Adam's race does now. He does not want to take away their innocence. Thus far nothing had been proclaimed wrong; only one thing had been “not appropriate”, and that had been remedied. There was nothing to discern— except this serpent. So was it evil that caused the chaos and destruction that preceded this beginning? We must not give too much credit to haSatan, who also serves Ya-hwuah (albeit reluctantly) and must ask His permission to do any damage. (Iyov/Job 1:6ff) Our main focus must be on obedience to Yahwuah rather than on directly targeting the “devil” or demons (which seldom appear in the Torah) for attention. But it is no small thing that the Hebrew word for wrong or evil became the name of the primary ruling spirit of the Egyptians (Ra). There was no way to know evil in this pleasure garden unless she ate of this tree. Chawwah was already intimately familiar with what was right, for everything was; the only thing this fruit really offered was the intimate knowledge of wrong. Why would anyone want this? Yet the crafty serpent made it look desirable. The manna was a similar test involving food, one of the most basic needs of man, to see if Israel would do things the way He wanted them done. Since the serpent has experienced Ya-hwuah’s
  • 41. punishment, “she” wants this same familiarity to affect the woman as well, possibly so she can commiserate. B'Rayshiyth 3:6. And when the woman perceived that the tree was beneficial for food, and that to the eyes it aroused a craving, and that the tree was intensely desirable to bring insight, she took some of its fruit and ate it, and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. "Beneficial...to the eyes...insight": Compare these three areas of temptation as seen in Matt. 4:2-10 and 1 Yoch./John 2:16. Actually the first two characteristics were true of every tree in the Garden (2:9), and the third was only her perception, for this would not be inherently visible in the fruit itself. That accuser took advantage of the innate traits in the woman that were necessary for sympathetic mothering, but her husband, who had been placed in authority over her to protect this area of vulnerability, knew better, and thus bore the greater guilt. If he was with her, why did he not stop her? Like Aharon when Moshe struck the rock, he stood by and let her do wrong. Did he love her enough to wish rather to be condemned along with her than to retain his purity but lose her to Aluahiym’s judgment? Thus, in a way, Adam indeed left his Father to cling to his wife (2:24). When the woman saw that the tree was good for food [lust of the flesh], and that it was a delight to the eyes [lust of the eyes], and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise [pride of life], she took of its fruit, and ate; and she gave some to her husband with her, and he ate. ... so they could be like "Aluahiym"!; Phil 2:5 Have this in your mind, which was also within haMashiyach Yâhuwshúa`, Who, existing in the form of Aluahiym, didn’t consider equality with Aluah a thing to be grasped, (as did Chuwah and Adam – "be like Aluahiym") but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bondman, being made in the likeness of the sons of Adam. And being found in fashion "Like a son of Adam

"Daniy’al 7: 13], I saw in the night visions, and, behold, there came with the clouds of heaven, One like Bar Enash, and He came even to the Ancient of Days, and He was brought near before Him. He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, even the death of the stake. ) He came to undo and make reparation for this strong temptation. Compare the context here with YashaYahuw 49:6: And He said, “It is a small thing for You to be My Servant for restoring the tribes of Ya`aqóv and to bring back the protected ones of Yisrâ’Ä´l [144,000], so I will also give You for a Light of the heathen masses that You might bring My deliverance even unto the end of the earth!”” 28:25 Thus says the Master Ya-hwuah: When I shall have gathered the House of Ysra'al from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and shall be Setapart in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their own Land which I gave to My servant Ya'aqob. 28:26 They shall dwell securely therein; yes, they shall build houses, and plant vineyards, and shall dwell securely, when I have executed judgments on all those who do them contempt all around them; and they shall know that I AM Ya-hwuah their Aluahiym. This land will include Tzur’s former territory! Note that we are gathered away from the peoples before we are gathered away from their lands, so that they can notice our love for one another.
