The Beast System: Final

Friday, November 18th, 2022

    When we prefer loving Jesus Christ as our one and only – – at the level of a true wife’s commitment, and accept His Gift of The Holy Spirit to communicate with us, real Life becomes a true reality.  When Love, Truth, Repentance, Faithfulness, and Loyalty, are flowing within us, and the anointing of Agape’s Divine Order is with/in us, we become the true Agapeō “neighbor.” Loving what The LORD Loves, and hating what The LORD hates, is surrendering to The Mind of Christ and putting into action the purpose of “The Lamb’s” blood on the “doorposts” of our lives as we partake.

   As Jesus Christ is being manifested in His rightful place as our Lover, Sovereign Lord, Savior, High Priest, and only King – Life for us will become the adventure of ‘fulfillment’ The LORD intended for it to be.                     

    Without The Mind of Christ how will we survive?

      “Let this [one] mind/disposition be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus…” (Php. 2:5 )

    Without “The Mind of Christ” how can The Body of Christ be expected to function?  Without The Mind of Christ our thoughts, words, and actions become just the religious expressions of our intellect. Without The Mind of Christ – how can we see, hear, understand or perceive the direction and guidance of The Holy Spirit ?

        “Faithful is The LORD God, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.  I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you may be speaking in unison, and that there be no divisions among you; but be attuned to and joined together in the same MIND and in the same resolve/stance…”  (1Cor.1:9&10)

    For the BeLoved of The LORD to thrive, and function as “The Body of Christ” in the earth, we must have and be listening to “The Mind of Christ.”  Without being Lovers of Truth our discernment /examination of anything is carnal and askew. Without The Mind of Christ our words are only the voice of an intellect without meaning, unable to deliver Agape Life.

        “But according as it is written, that which the eye did not perceive, and the ear did not hear, and to which the soul of man did not ascend – God makes ready for them who Love (Agapeō) Him [they will get it].  To us The Lord Jesus reveals them through His Spirit: for The Spirit is searching all, even the profundity/ wisdom/ complexity/ enormity of The LORD God.  For is any of humanity acquainted with that which is human except by the “spirit of humanity” which is in them?   In like manner, that which is of God knows no one, except the Spirit of God.  [Whom the Body of Christ has received.]

   Now we [BeLoved] obtained, not the spirit of the world, but the Holy Spirit which is of God; so that we may be perceiving that which is being graciously given to us by God – and by which [Divine] Spirit we are speaking also – not with words (logos) taught by human wisdom, but by the Holy Spirit, matching that which is divinely spiritual within those which are [truly] spiritual.

   Now the soulish person is not receiving those things which are of the Holy Spirit of The LORD God, for they are foolishness and stupidity to them, and they are not able to know them, because they [The divinely spiritual things of God] are only spiritually discerned/examined.

  Therefore, the person who is in fact divinely spiritual is, indeed, examining/discerning all, yet that person is being (effectively) examined by no human.  For who has the mind of the Lord?  Who will be instructed by Him? Those who have The Mind of Christ.”  (1Cor. 2:9-16)

      In 1st Peter it says for us to, 13gird afresh the procreative power of your comprehension, being clear and levelheaded, thoughtful and unflustered, and expect perfectly the grace which is being brought to you in, at, and by the unveiling of Jesus Christ.

  As compliant (not rebellious) children, not conforming to your former desires and lusts according to your ignorance: but, according as He who calls you is holy, consecrated, morally blameless and physically pure,  that you may also become the same in all behavior; 16because it is written that, holy you shall be; because I [your anointed Head] Am holy…

         The harmonious unity of the presence of Agape within the Bride of Christ sets her apart from all others.  And for the remnant, the Elect, and the very Elect out from her, it would be impossible for them to STAND if the harmony of the Head and Spirit of The Lord were not present and subsequently flowing together.

     ‘Dear LORD, give us the awareness we need to desire the gift of your presence in this time of great deception and temptation.  Grant us, we pray, the sincerity and clarity to be able to “STAND” and flow within the anointing of YOUR Divine Order.’

    As The Dearly BeLoved – without “The Mind of Christ” abiding and maturing within us, our existence in today’s world will become more than we can endure.     (Mt.24:22; Mk.13:20; 2Tm. 2:10-13)

    There is much for us to discern in this time of endless misinformation, scams, and hidden agendas.  As you have been patient to read this letter, may The MIND of CHRIST be present and the Holy Spirit be your guide

The Beast System: Part 8

   How does God do things?   First He provides us with the solution, and then He gives us the problem.  We have the solution because The “blood” is on the doorposts” of our lives, and partaking of the [spiritual] food is best likened to receiving and assimilating “The Mind of Christ.”  If we continue to allow ourselves to avoid this level of Love/Agapeō Anointing, and the surrendering and disciplining our minds, we are not going to have much of a home or nation left to defend.

    Is it the “Beast” who remains active here, or the Body of Christ?   The Mind of Christ is focused on Agapeō, Repentance, Faith, Truth, and Divine Wisdom, with real submission to, and Freedom for, The Holy Spirit to flow, guide, and direct.  The Mind of Christ is one which has us “being the neighbor.”  Remember, when the lawyer asked, “Yes, but who is my neighbor?”  Jesus’ response was –  “You are asking the wrong question!”  It’s not a matter of  “who is my neighbor,” but rather “to whom [Father]  can I be the neighbor?”

    It is time to stop being carnal, and keep in mind that it is the LORD God who controls everything – not some religious, legal, political, intellectual, or financial figure.  Don’t “feed the Beast.”  If we are seduced into just focusing upon the “front” people, then we are just “feeding the ‘Beast.’  We’re not dealing with the “front” people, or even the “Beast” or any of its minions, but rather – our main focus is to Love and trust our LORD God ‘Almighty’ who dearly Loves us and will show us through Christ what to say or do. 

    It’s “hand to hand” combat, starting in our own house – against the weakness of our mind and spirit. If we ever intend to protect, serve, and preserve the people we love, this nation, or our way of life, then we must start trusting Agape and moving in Agapeō. What relevance is there in the 2nd Amendment without Christ as our Head?  Are guns and ammo alone going to provide the discipline of mind and spirit we are now spiritually and physically being challenged to develop at this time?  The pagan and religious minds of Jesus day were told to accept Barabbas. (Mt.27:17) Whom are we choosing to lead us today?

   For now, our top priority is for us to spiritually mature and stop being pagan.  Which we can start accomplishing by terminating our participation in carnal and pagan activity, by no longer participating in immoral activities, and by not giving our minds over to any further dependence upon today’s controlling  “Beast System.”  Until we can truly say yes to Jesus our Lord, there is little practical expectation we’ll ever achieve mastery of the insight, principles, and reality being taught to us by The LORD. Stop whining! 

    There is God-denying, and God-defying like The LORD found in Jericho, and Sodom and Gomorrah, and even Nineveh. The obvious difference being that the people of Nineveh were given “sight” to “see” and “hearing” to “hear” in time to turn devastation into national repentance.

    Are we now in the prophesied Gog v. Magog event –  maybe?  And, what does that even mean?  It’s means the LORD’s BeLoved can clearly see Truth is still standing against “the Liar/ Accuser.”  The  LORD is going to render “the Lies” to be burnt to stubble, and that divine fire is starting in us for the purification of “His sanctuary” within the BeLoved. This is why it really matters that we come to terms with the reality of who we are to be in Christ Jesus  –  the Bride and Wife of Christ. This is about a LOVE relationship BeLoved, not just some war between good and evil.

The Choice of the Value and Method of Exchange

   We, as The LORD’s Dearly BeLoved, are now either returning to the divine harmony of the “Garden” frame of mind for our choices – or,  our mind is lost in The Wilderness of temptation somewhere. 

     It could be that the reason The LORD God has selected the ‘financial elitists’ to run this current version of His “Beast” system is because they are among the very few on the planet who “get it” when it comes to the connection between the medium of exchange and the choice of ‘divine Law.’ When we use God’s form of exchange [i.e., silver] we’re saying that we want the “Common Law,” the origin of which in Scripture is the choice of God’s law for the transaction. 

    For us to use the Common Law [i.e., Scripture] is for us to call upon God’s way (The LORD’s essence being found in Agape – 1Jn.4:8)  as our “hedge,” i.e., as our Protection.  Has The LORD set up the financial elitists as the “Beast” Head, controlled by the “Accuser,” as the diversion, because they know exactly what to do?  And, what have they done?  They yanked The LORD’s Common Law right out from under us. How did they do that? – By providing for a dependence upon their “different” medium of exchange. 

    Because of the rebellion, promiscuity, and sexual perversion already existing in the 1960’s, what God released was a ready-made “Beast” along with the removal of “the hedge” over our nation.  Our nation’s reliance upon The LORD’s Love and Laws of Love for our Protection was replaced. [Silver, Bible, & Prayer out!] 

    By means of removing the honest value of “Money” (using honest weights and measures), i.e., the silver coinage and paper backed by Gold from general circulation – “Beast Credit” dependence became our national “Idol/ reliance/ dependency of preference.”         In this way, and there is hardly any other way to look at our new national “lord,”  The LORD put our nation “outside of His protection.” And thus began the releasing of the icon/image government of the Beast with its endless lies and deception.

   We are experiencing the results of this, along with the perversions of unrestrained promiscuity today. They have continued to accelerate ever since they were engaged.  Innocently, or deliberately, ‘We The People’ keep choosing to be deceived and partake of the wrong tree by choosing the voice of deception,  therefore America remains on its journey with the “Beast.” 

    Some have struggled to remain faithful, but vast multitudes are now struggling “in The Wilderness.”  Jesus Himself, shows us the solution to our existing condition.  We must learn to master our own thoughts and actions and give ourselves over to The Mind of Christ.  Since we’ve all been born into a society that hasn’t put this as a priority, we have fewer and fewer examples, other than what we are able to still find in what is left of the true leading of Jesus’ The Holy Spirit as our guide on how to accomplish this.

     So what are we looking at?   Paul simply called this the “renewing of our the mind.” (Rom. 12:2)   How do we restart our mind?  By honestly and genuinely surrendering our mind, its thoughts, and our will to The Mind of Christ.  Repent and be born anew.

    If there is no change in our conduct as a nation, there’ll be no change in God’s proceeding to put this “Beast” system of total financial slavery and self- obsession to an end.  To change our thinking and conduct, we’ll have to change our perspective, i.e., “change our minds.” Exactly what Paul and Peter were telling the Dearly BeLoved in their time.

The Beast System: Part 6

   Is “Passover,” a relevant example in this context?

    It’s not just about us stopping being so  pagan; it’s about stopping being pagan, period,  all of it, not just part.  It happens that ‘Passover’ is an ideal backdrop in which to picture both our problem [namely our defiance against God] and the solution, namely our turning to The LORD’s way of seeing and doing things. 

    In the original event, God had Israel put the blood of the lamb around the door.  The destroyer did  still move through the land.  The LORD saw to it that death did “passed over” those with the lamb’s blood evident over them.  However, the destroyer did take the first born of the people of the nation, and even the animals [sustenance] of those without the blood/LOVE of the Passover Lamb over them. The relevancy involving all this for us today becomes huge BeLoved. And it’s not just about ‘obedience’ – it also involves what they ate/partook of.   ‘As you do this [as our bodies are broken like unleavened bread] remember My unleavened brokenness for you.’                                    (Ex.12:18-20, Lk.22:19 & 12:4, 1Co.11:23&24)

   The war we are in now literally involves “terrorism” carried out by the minions of those at the helm of the Beast’s One World government agenda. It seems like pretty inconceivable odds as we realize we are up against The LORD God’s appointed “Beast” system.  As we consider just one small faction of Elitists against the whole of the rest of the world, it just doesn’t seem like a fair fight. However, if we are going to understand which way this is going to go – we need to understand who it is  that is picking a fight with God’s Beast bringing judgment against the rebellious.  Whom is it who makes up all those who are in rebellion?

    Are we coming into a time of ‘Passover’ where the Beast cause, which The LORD controls, will see death Passing Over America?  Is God “cleaning house,” as it were?  The perception we get from Ez. 9 is that The LORD starts this cleansing in His sanctuary/ temple, which for us today means ‘The Body of His Christ.’  This is just one more good reason why it really matters we identify correctly as to who is who in Scripture.

     One of the more dramatic descriptions of God’s “cleaning house” is found in Ez. 5:12 where one third die by plague/disease  or are consumed by famine, one third will fall by the sword,  and one third will be scattered to every wind, and The LORD will unsheathe a sword behind them.  This is not a statement about just those outside of Israel – but of the judgment on Israel, itself.  The Passover “season,” as described in Ez. 9, isn’t a pass over Israel but a pass through Israel.  No one escapes the judgment. It’s not just Egypt getting clobbered in this scenario, but rather it is also Israel getting walloped.  “Mystery Babylon” isn’t all that difficult to identify if we take a moment to think about it.

    As a nation, how will all Americans have a clear mission for survival when all of their rebellion is under attack by God, Himself?  God, Himself, has provided the answer:   “The Lamb’s” blood on our “doorposts” and the bread in our mouths. – -Being The Body of Christ  – and Having The Mind of Christ.

   What was it in Jesus’ mind that He mastered fully?    It was not some “external,” “all powerful,” floatie-thing He was engaging in.  Jesus was wrestling with Himself about what to do with what He was realizing He had and what He was.  How did He master this challenge?  With the full acceptance of the thoughts, words, and actions He received from His “LORD Father.”  He mastered the temptations of His own inner thoughts by keeping the superiority of The Father’s divine perspective above His own ideas and standards. Whether in a beautiful Garden, or in the wilderness, Jesus knew to always choose The Father’s way first.

   Then we have the four forms of Divine Judgment, which are:  (a) War, which American’s have been in for 250 years.  (b) Famine, which includes today’s real and fabricated shortages, the non-existence of the necessary healthful food our bodies need to keep us from physical and mental depravity, and the spiritual deprivation for competent Scriptural teaching and the Holy Spirit’s leading and guidance. (c)Pestilence  (Disease & Plague), which, while fabricated and inflicted in the present day, is one of the tell-tale confirmations of Divine Judgment [even when it, and the presentation of it, is manufactured by the imaginations of the “Beast’s” minions, and presented as a Hollywood production on the global stage], and  (d) “Beast” systems.        And, all of this begs the question:  Why?

   Thus, the next point:  Why the lies – they confirm the “Beast,” which confirms divine judgment and the intent that we be devoured and destroyed?  Because – we as a nation have gone pagan!  We are in a “rebellion” against The LORD God which we don’t even recognize (‘have eyes but cannot see; have ears but cannot hear’). Today’s Americans have been raised by the systems of this world to be spiritually weak and emotively carnal. 

    Though this may be a hard word to hear, the BeLoved today were born into a world of rebellion that started centuries before they even got over to this continent [which was around 1607].  How do we know?  Because ‘we’ have been “at war” against where we came from, then with the indigenous Indians, and even against ourselves, for the entire time we’ve been here.  In other words,  ‘We The People’ didn’t escape the problem;  instead, we brought the problem with us.  “War” – which is a form of Divine Judgment;  it’s never been anything else.  War and Conflicts  are the things that happen when religious and carnal people meet  other  religious and carnal people. 

    Nations committed to war, or any other form of paganism, will seek to eliminate others who don’t agree with them for the duration of such paganism.  As one reflects on the documented history of war, they can see this very plainly.  May The LORD Father cure our blindness as to why He’s subjected those in this nation to ‘war’ – against the “Beast. “ (Rev.17:6 -19:9)

                    The  Beast and the Beast’s Image

    Those BeLoved who gathered in Rome, whom Paul wrote to and lived with, were facing a situation not that different from ours today.  People were under a “Beast system” namely Caesar’s Rome, and they were feeling it but good.  So to address this in this context, the “Beast and its system” of Rome was embodied in the current Caesar in power and his Image/government.

    Biblically and historically, a “Beast” is a king with an “Image”/ government,  raised up by God to be an iron rod of correction in His hand. The Beast of Rome was used to tear Jerusalem to the ground after the Babylonian Talmudic Sanhedrin had totally corrupted it, and they then topped it off when they saw to the crucifixion of Jesus there.

    This put an end to an old ‘structure.’ But another growing structure called ‘Christianism from Antioch’ would later multiply and divide, and find a new home in Rome around 320 AD. There it would be nurtured

by the Roman Beast and grow into the controlling world power it has become to this day.                   

      Is there a solution for America today?   

     If the responsibility falls on The Dearly BeLoved  for doing things The LORD God’s way, then it does matter that we respond properly.  After all,  The BeLoved of The LORD are supposed to be an example for the whole of civilization – are we not?   Some think carrying that responsibility that far – is going too far.  But that is exactly where The LORD placed it in the past.  He picked Abram and dubbed him Abraham for a very good reason.  He picked Jacob (supplanter) and dubbed him ‘Israel’ (who prevails with God) for a very good reason.  It matters that we get this BeLoved. The Light of The LORD’s beloved shown through into Goshen – while darkness covered the entirety of Egypt. This being a very interesting example. 

     This ‘being a Light shining’ is easy to say, but hard to put into service. – – – We who Love The LORD today must earnestly repent and stop our own activities of carnality and paganism. The rest of the world is paying the price for their own versions of paganism – and what examples have we given them to respect?  We are supposed to be the living examples of the BeLoved Body of Christ, are we not?  We who truly Love The LORD need to be walking  IN CHRIST.  And the sooner we start moving as such – the sooner The LORD God will either fire His “Beast” and its Image system of government here in America; Or, the sooner and harder The LORD’s hammer of justice and judgment will take place, and this nation will become what? On its current course it is destined to become – devastated.

    In our repentance, let’s pray for the repentance of the people of this nation before the LORD’s judgment ensues.

The Beast System: Part 4

Sunday, November 13th, 2022

     God first put their ancestors into bondage in Egypt, and once that period had run its course [some 430 years later],  God took them out of Egypt under His mighty hand. 

    Please note in here that,  yes,  the “Beasts” always get what’s coming to them.  They always do.   The problem, then, isn’t justice, but rather why God raises them up, at all, in the first place.  Think about it, are we here in America right back into the same problem?   If we weren’t our own worst enemy,  if there weren’t, in all reality, three fingers pointing right back at us, then there wouldn’t be a “Beast” for us to have to deal with today in the first place.

    Further study will find that each “Beast” throughout Scriptural history has been commissioned by God, to devour and to destroy the rebellious.  We see this plainly in Jer. 5, here The LORD is telling those in the Southern Kingdom that their day of Bondage is about to arrive, and it will follow the horrific events of devouring and destroying.  Thus, flipped around to the Beast’s point of view,  what a Beast needs for perpetual survival is a perpetual condition of rebellion against God –  then and only then does a “Beast” remain in control.

    Key at this juncture is to understand that those who are being rendered subject to this “Beast” have already been indicted, tried, and found Guilty of being in rebellion.  Why are we being thrown under the ‘One World’s’ Socialist bus?  For all the very same reasons that the Southern Kingdom was thrown under the bus, which are the very same reasons why God threw the Northern Kingdom under the bus, as well.

  The greatest sin a nation can commit is turning to other gods. And just as prophesied would happen, we in America turn to “government” (The Image of the Beast) which is depicted as “the Image” shown to Daniel. For our sustenance and protection we have turned away from God.   As a nation, we don’t look to The LORD God to provide for us – but rather to “government.”     

             (Homage to the Image/government !)

    The “Beast” has gone to considerable trouble to produce that exact line of thought, word, and practice, and there is a reason for this.  America’s “Beast Government” expects to outsmart God.  What this may mean is that the “Beast” isn’t quite self-aware, yet.  Some expect those within the Beast, and their government lackeys, know full good and well that their wealth has been provided by the Plan of God so they will accomplish their purpose(s), but that is probably giving them more credit than is due – – yet. 

     If the “Beast” truly were  self-aware, it would make sense if they stopped writhing, because in their awareness they would already know that all their centuries of planning is coming to naught.  But since we’re seeing all of the exertion on their part, it means this “Beast” may have reached its most dangerous “state of mind”- clinical insanity – hence the pathological, psychopathic intent to commit worldwide genocide [enter drugs, starvation, abortion, pandemics, etc.].

    Part of what this “Beast” and its minions planned for was a world-wide system which they would control.  What they clearly don’t understand is that such form of global, “perpetual Judgment” is something which The LORD God never intended.

   To review the past four points we have this:  (1) We are being lied to about everything.  Pick a topic.  (2) We’re being lied to, because that’s how “Beast” systems operate.  (3) Thus, we’re dealing with a “Beast” system.  (4) America as a nation has apparently been Indicted, Tried, and Convicted of being rebellious against God. 

The Beast System: Part 3

       [This next part is the statement of “Judgment,” followed by more Indictment.]

  14 Therefore this is what the LORD God Almighty says: “Because the people have spoken these words, I will make My words in your [Jeremiah’s] mouth a fire and these people [the Southern Kingdom, i.e.], Judah, Benjamin, the renegades from the Northern Kingdom, and the Levites assigned to the Southern Kingdom the wood it consumes. 15 People of Israel,” declares the LORD, “I am bringing a distant nation against you – an ancient and enduring nation, a people whose language you do not know, whose speech you do not understand.          16 Their quivers are like an open grave; all of them are mighty warriors. 17 They will devour  your harvests and food, will devour your sons and daughters;  they will devour your flocks and herds, devour your vines and fig trees.  With the sword they will destroy the fortified cities in which you trust. 18 Yet even in those days, declares the LORD, I will not ‘destroy’ you completely.

     [Who is doing the devouring and destroying?  Who??   Right.   God, Almighty, via the agency of the “Beast” system He has specifically “commissioned” to do this work of carrying out His Judgment.             Then, there is more about the Indictment.]

   19 And when the people ask, ‘Why has the LORD our God done all this to us?’ you will tell them,  ‘As you have forsaken Me and served foreign gods in your own land, so now you will serve foreigners in a land not your own.’  20 Announce this to the descendants of Jacob and proclaim it in Judah:  21 Hear this, you foolish and senseless people,  who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear:

  22 Should you not fear Me?” declares the LORD. Should you not tremble in My presence?  I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it. 23 But these people have stubborn, willful, and rebellious minds;  they have turned aside and gone away.          24 They do not say to themselves, ‘Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.’ 

  25 Your wrongdoings have kept these away; your sins have deprived you of good.  26 “Among  My people  are the wicked who lie in wait like men who snare birds and like those who set traps to catch people.  27 Like cages full of birds, their houses are full of deceit; they have become rich and powerful 28and have grown fat and sleek. Their evil deeds have no limit; they do not seek justice. They do not promote the case of the fatherless; they do not defend the just cause of the poor. 29 Should I not punish them for this?” declares the LORD. “Should I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this? 30 “A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land:   31 The prophets prophesy lies, the  pastors  rule by their own authority, and My people love it this way.  But what will you do in the end? ” 

         What is it, exactly, that The LORD God has to avenge?  Generations and generations earlier, the ancestors of the people then under Judgment [under Babylon], had agreed, at the base of Mt. Horeb  [a/k/a Mt. Sinai, and a/k/a Gebal Mousa, the Mountain of Moses], to abide by the Laws and Commandments of God, as presented to them by Moses.  God went to considerable trouble to prove Himself  over His chosen to the then “Beast” system leadership, namely Pharaoh [and today like all those who think and act like they are gods – as “clerical -heads” over  their people,  their  word being the “final” word]. 

The Beast System: Part 2

Friday, November 11th, 2022

   What do we think the meaning of the “Beast” is?        ….We find in Daniel’s accounts of Nebuchadnezzar some of the best confirmation of the meaning of the ‘Beast.’  Nebuchadnezzar had taken credit for what God had done, so God turned him into a “beast.”  It is an interesting study for us to go through and find some of the relevant references of “judgment” and work through the meanings of the grouped concepts. 

    In Ez. 14, we find the discussion of the four main components of God’s selected forms of ‘judgment.’    In  v. 21, we fine one of the clearest summary statements of  the Four Great Judgments:  War,   Famine,   Pestilence/Disease,  and “Beasts.”            

     It is through the study of these four concepts, presented by differing terms in various places,  in conjunction with the description of Nebuchadnezzar’s condition during his time of Divine Judgment,  that we can come to understand that   –  a “Beast” is a king   or authority/power  raised up by The LORD God to be an iron rod of correction in His hand.

Why does God allow the raising up of “Beast” systems?   ….A “Beast” system exists for the direct and specific purpose of carrying out God’s Judgment(s).  What is the cause for such judgment?    There is principally one example:  God’s Indictment of the Southern Kingdom in this context [i.e., the context of why they’re being turned over to a “Beast”] is mixed in with the statements of “Judgment” found in Jeremiah Chapter 5.  This first part is mostly Indictment:

    “1 Go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, look around and consider, search through her squares.  If you can find but one person who deals honestly and seeks the truth, I will forgive this city.  2 Although they say, ‘As surely as the LORD lives,’ still they are swearing falsely.

    3 LORD, do not Your eyes look for truth?  You struck them, but they felt no pain; You crushed them, but they refused correction. They made their faces harder than stone and refused to repent.  4 I thought, These are only the poor;  they are foolish, for they do not know the way of the LORD, the requirements of their God.  5 So I will go to the leaders and speak to them; surely they know the way of the LORD, the requirements of their God.  But with one accord they also had broken off the yoke and torn off the bonds.  6 Therefore  a lion [God, via a “Beast” system] from the forest will attack them;  – –   a wolf [God, via a “Beast” system] from the desert will ravage them;  – – a leopard  [God, via a “Beast” system] will lie in wait near their towns to tear to pieces any who venture out.  For their [God’s people] rebellion is great and their backslidings  many.

 7 Why should I forgive you [My people]? Your children have forsaken Me and sworn by gods that are not gods. I supplied all their needs, yet they committed adultery and thronged to the houses of prostitutes.  (Rev.17:5)  8 They are well-fed, lusty stallions, each neighing for another man’s wife.  9 Should I not punish them for this?” declares the LORD. “Should I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?  10 Go through her vineyards and ravage them, but do not destroy them completely.  Strip off her branches, for these [passive] people do not belong to the LORD.” 

  11 “The people of Israel and the people of Judah [all who call themselves My people] have been utterly unfaithful to Me,” declares the LORD.12 “They have lied about the LORD; they said,  “He will do nothing!  No harm will come to us;  we will never see sword or famine.  13 The prophets are but wind and the word is not in them; so let what they say be done to them.”

A writing from Chuck G.:

Just what is it we are up-against today?

            A person could invest a lot of energy and time responding to lies, accusations, and doing the blame-game.  However, most often the “front” people we’re confronting  are there so we will do exactly that.  Are America’s “front” people a façade, or a mouthpiece for the “Beast?” Are those who we will seldom if ever hear about the ones who are operating this “Beast?” 

     These ‘front’ people can be replaced, and as the “front” people are replaced, the “Beast” remains totally unchanged and entirely on its intended course.  Focusing on the “front” people, as they’ve been put out there for us to do, are just mechanisms for us to use so all of our energy will be rapidly dissipated with no real effective change happening to or about anything.

     In America today, President Biden is the perfect ‘front’ person.  A jester who keeps everyone looking at and talking about him while, behind the screen, his handlers are tearing our nation apart piece by piece.

     If ‘We The People’ can’t stop focusing our attention on putting the ‘front’ people back into the fly-trap they come from [as today’s set-up is there for us to be focused on doing]  we will have fallen hook, line, and sinker for the entirety of this well planned and highly organized attack on our “In God We Trust” way of life.

    On the one hand, yes, we absolutely need to know and to talk about the reality that most of their plot is filled with endless lies.  But on the other, once we’ve accepted the fact we are being lied to, we have to move beyond that into “the rest of the story,” and clean house. Or else we will just keep spinning our proverbial wheels  –  as this charade has been carefully designed for us to do. 

     Think of Elijah and the false Prophets of Ba’al.  Today’s false “officials,” and all their “propagandists,” [who today appropriate the label of “journalists”] are simply our modern-day version of the false Prophets of Ba’al.  And we have no idea just how many of them are simply people posing as propagandists.  But it does make sense that a majority of these people are exactly that, and how the entire misinformation industry is being so easily manipulated and controlled. 

    Whoever ‘they’ really are, their “god” is deaf, dumb and blind, and ours is not.  But here is a very important point we must consider; all the evidence is showing us our LORD God is extremely upset with us as a nation, and He is using them as a prod to get some of us to make a number of fundamental changes in our Divine perspectives, in our thinking, words, and our conduct.

   The real point and question here isn’t “whether” or not we are being lied to by the liars, and being manipulated into a national collapse, but rather it is “Why are we being lied to?  Why are we being  lied to and deceived about practically everything?

    We are being lied to on just about any topic today because that is exactly how “Beast” systems work.     A person attracted to the role of being a “Beast” minion  is one who has so little ethics, morals, or conscience that it’s nothing for them to lie, about anything and everything.

   If the “Beast” systems  throughout history were based on truth and reality, they would put themselves out of business long before accomplishing their tasks.  They deal with everyone they come into contact with by means of deceit, and this is how they perpetuate the deviousness of their existence.

Zebulun: Dwelling in Exaltation

Sunday, February 16th, 2020

Another writing from my friend Alan:

If you have been following this series of investigations into the family of Jacob, who was later to become Israel, you are aware that Leah, the elder daughter of Laban, was betrothed to a man who did not ask for her, nor have desire for her. And throughout this pageant, Jacob was thereby forced to accept a ‘wife’ he didn’t want in return for having access to the woman he loved. If you or I were writing this script, this is probably not the beginning we would suggest for the makings of a solid marriage and prosperous future. And yet it is the very scenario experienced by the one that was destined to manifest the full meaning of the name ‘Yah-qove’ (Jacob), and who was later to learn what it means to have to die to being ‘Yah-qove’ in order to experience the blueprint known as ‘Israel’. The journey from ‘adam’ to Christ is a storyline that could only be conceived in the Mind of God.
Leah, the wife reluctantly accepted, has given birth to five sons for Jacob, while Rachel, whom Jacob loved, was still barren and could produce no ‘fruit of the womb’. After the incident of ‘the mandrakes’, Rachel was still barren, but Leah produced a fifth son which she named Issachar; “My Wages” or “My Reward”. And even while Rachel remained childless, as if to add insult to injury, Leah conceived again to produce a sixth son for Jacob.
KJV Genesis 30:19 And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.
KJV Genesis 30:20 And Leah said, “God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell (zah-bal, Strong’s # 2082) with me, because I have born him six sons”: and she called his name Zebulun.
While we have no direct information about what has been transpiring in the life of Leah since the birthing of Issachar, her demeanor and mindset seems to have begun to change; and for the better. Leah seems to be more at peace with herself, and her circumstances. And there is more going on in this scenario than we can plumb in this setting. The significance of the birth and naming of Zebulun seems to indicate that Leah is more accepting of her place in relationship with her husband, and the other ‘wives’ and their children. Leah emphasizes that she has now produced six sons for Jacob, and she relates that to being a ‘good dowry’, and a gift from God.
One of the unique mysteries revealed in this passage of scripture is the relationship between two words used by Leah in this proclamation; ‘zah-bahd’ and ‘zah-bal’. The English words ‘endued’ and ‘dowry’ in this verse, Gen. 30:20, are from the same Hebrew word, ‘zah-bahd’, which is listed as Strong’s #2064-2066. The primary root ‘zah-bahd’, as recognized in Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, is defined as this: “…to endow; to impart; to bestow a gift, etc.” This
verse is the only place in scripture where I can find this word listed as a verb, and a common noun. Every other use of this three-letter word is as a proper noun name. That makes the use of this word as a verb/noun combination in this verse leap out at me, and causes me to ask ‘why’?
What is going on in the life of Leah that would inspire her to refer to giving birth to six sons as ‘a good dowry’? The English ‘dowry’ is referred to as a gift of money or property, or somethingof intrinsic value, that a woman’s family usually gives to a husband so that the future intended husband has something of value with which to provide for and protect his betrothed. Leah was well aware that the dowry that Laban, her father, had pledged to Jacob was the opportunity to ork further for Laban, just so Jacob could receive Rachel, his true love, as his wife. However,
after the birthing of Issachar, and now Zebulun, Leah declares that God has provided her with the acceptable ‘dowry’ for Jacob; six sons. That, to me, is a remarkable progression in the heart and mind of Leah as she has had to endure competing with Rachel, and two ‘handmaid’ wives, for respect and loyalty and attention from Jacob. Leah is proclaiming that the six sons she has born to Jacob is the proper dowry that she has to bestow (zah-bahd) upon her husband.
Leah has apparently recognized and accepted the valuable role she has to offer this clan. She can now see the true worth of her presence. Leah has found her ‘dwelling place’; the place where she belongs.
The other unique Hebrew word used in this verse is the verb ‘zah-bal’, Strong’s #2082. ‘Zah-bal’ refers to the proper dwelling place of a thing, or person or idea. The use of this word is indication that an idea or person or item is dwelling, actually residing, in its proper locale; where it naturally belongs. And both of the Hebrew words in this verse, ‘zah-bahd’ and zah-bal’, come from a common word association based on the first letter of the words, which is the ‘zayin’, the seventh letter of the Hebrew ‘aleph-beyt’ (alphabet). The use of the ‘zayin’, the seventh
letter, particularly when the ‘zayin’ is the first letter of a word, is indicative of having arrived, via a proper progression, to the correct location of a person or thing or idea. Many times a person or thing or idea can be recognized as not being in its most fitting locale. But that is not so with this word ‘zah-bal’. This word is indicative of a person, thing or idea being specifically where it is most suited; where it belongs. Hence the word ‘Zebulun’, derived from this verb ‘zah-bal’, is descriptive of perpetually dwelling in your most suitable location or condition.
The second letter of these two words is the ‘beyt’ (b), which is also the second letter of the ‘aleph-beyt’. And the role of the ‘beyt’ is to communicate a dwelling place, or cave, or house.

The Hebrew spelling of these words is significant in how these words are being used to communicate. In this context, the word ‘zah-bal’, which is loosely translated as ‘to dwell’, is indicative that Leah has recognized that she sees herself as now being in her relevant role, and in her proper dwelling place. Now that Leah is in her proper dwelling place, mentally and emotionally and spiritually, she believes her husband will now desire to ‘zah-bal’, or ‘dwell’, in her presence. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that Jacob will only dwell with her, and no longer desire his relationship with Rachel, Leah is now at peace with her situation. Leah has, in her own unique way, found peace in this troubled clan. As testimony of her finding her God-endowed place of peace, she will be rewarded with giving birth to another; a daughter, which she names Dinah.
When Leah names her daughter Dinah, the name indicates that Leah has accepted God’s discernment (diyn Strong’s #1777-1781) as a righteous judgment (diyn) for her situation. The word ‘dinah’ (see Strong’s # H1783) is from the same word that is translated in Psalm 7:8 as “…’judge’ (diyn; discern) the people;”, and also in many other places where ‘judge’ or ‘judgment’ is actually better recognized as ‘discernment’. However, the word ‘Dinah’ has the fifth letter of the ‘aleph-beyt’, the ‘hey’, added as suffix to this word ‘diyn’, which makes the word ‘dinah’ a
feminine context. Words which are a ‘feminine’ context’ are descriptive of an activity or idea actually being acted out, and/or physically expressed. The name ‘Dinah’ indicates that this discernment/judgment (diyn) is actually a quality of life being lived out.
Leah has now become ‘zah-bahd’, a good dowry. She doesn’t have a good dowry; she is a good dowry. ‘Zebulun’ (zah-bal) has now become the dwelling place of Leah, and ‘Dinah’ has become her quality of Life; in God, and in her family. Well done, Leah! Well done, indeed!
I can now see that until Jacob had become the complete and proper husband to his first wife, Leah, he could not have sons from his true love, Rachel. Jacob has arrived because Leah has arrived. And now Joseph, the legitimate ‘firstborn’ of Jacob, can come forth, and the journey to ‘Israel’ may continue. Jacob faces more pruning from God before he can be confronted with the role of Israel, which is his intended destination.
