YHWH who...!

I wrote a rather long note to a friend today, Iline, on the single mention names of the LORD, a correlation to the tabernacle furniture positioning, and the numbering of the sites in the tabernacle.  It is very interesting to see the amazing pattern showing the magnificence of our salvation that is visible to those looking.  Let's look:

1. The Gate of the Tabernacle and YHWH Jireh--The name YHWH Jireh translates best into English as "The LORD will see to it."  So what will He see too?  Your salvation when you trust Him by faith as Abraham did.  Remember, salvation is by grace through faith as we trust the saving power of God in Christ!  The gate is the point where we enter into unity with the LORD because HE will see to our salvation just as Abraham found out when he entered by FAITH into the promise. He knew that the LORD would provide the ultimate lamb and trusted accordingly. (See Genesis 22:14)

2. The flaying tables  and YHWH Rapha--the LORD that heals. The place where the animals were dispatched and the implements used are often left out of diagrams of the Tabernacle.  These tables, however, align themselves with the name YHWH Rapha--the LORD who heals thee.  So how does he heal? The number two corresponds to Christ, to fellowship, and to the cross. For instance, Psalm 22 is 2 x 11 or Christ's fellowship with the confusion caused by sin.  Psalm 22 is the Psalm of that fellowship--it is the greatest picture of the cross in the Old Testament!  It is the Psalm of the Christ, where Christ the only mediator, the middle man on a cross, the second person of the Godhead associated with the sin of humanity at Mount Calvary. In our fellowship with Him there is healing. It is not just physical healing but also spiritual healing. It is where he does surgery to cut Egypt from the hearts of His followers. We are as sheep to the slaughter, but it is a slaughter of healing. He takes the world from us and heals us by perfecting His image in us. " As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." Romans 8:37 (see Ex 15:26)

3. The Brazen Altar and YHWH Nissi--Three represents the wholeness or completion of God. I often just shorten this to God or the Trinity. Notice that the name Jehovah Nissi was revealed the very first time God called the Israelites to war. Up to that time He did all the fighting for them. There has to be an offered sacrifice on the altar. We are to sacrifice ourself and die to Christ daily. Did not Paul write, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (Romans 12:1)"  Our fight is a fight of faith. We lay our lives down, but GOD is the banner of victory in this fight. Again, He is perfecting the image of Messiah in us. An interesting statement was made at the revealing of that precious name, "For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation," Exodus 17:16. Amalek is a type and shadow of the flesh. We are to crucify the flesh and its lusts from generation to generation. We will win if we remember that His banner over us is love!

4. The Brass Sea and Jehovah-Mkaddesh--The sea represents the water of the Word and the sanctifying presence of the Holy Ghost where we are to wash daily. Of course, 4 represents the world. The LORD sanctifies us at this great place as we seek to enter into a deeper walk. Paul also revealed to the Thessalonians that we are to present ourselves for sanctification and that this is God's will (1 Thessalonians 4:3).  See Ex 31:13 for this precious name! 

5. The Table of Shewbread and YHWH Shalom--What was Gideon doing in Judges 6 when the LORD our Peace appeared. He was threshing and trying to hide the grain. Isn't the table of the LORD also about bread? Even the mention or the winepress is important. We receive both at the LORD's table. Bread, the broken body of Christ in fellowship, and the wine, the glorious shed blood that gives life eternal! Furthermore, the LORD is calling Gideon to fight Midian but revealing Himself as the LORD our Peace! Ironic, unless we see that in the battle of life Christ is our peace. We feast at his table where we receive grace, fellowship, and strength for the battle.

6. The Menorah and YHWH Rophe--The LORD is man's shepherd (hence the 6). How many branches are there on the Menorah that cannot stand alone--6. He is the vine, and we are the branches. We only bear fruit as we let the LIGHT of His Word and OIL of His Spirit guide us. In doing so, we burn brightly for Messiah Yeshua. He then daily cleanses the soot (caused by the wick and not the gold nor oil) from our lives. When we burn for Christ, the wick is not seen, only the flame. Surely, he anoints our head with oil to overflowing! This is the place of witness to the world. So much more to say here as I could literally write a book on this one piece of furniture. (Psalm 23)

7. The Altar of Incense and YHWH tsidqenuw--This is the only name in the set mentioned twice. That in and of itself is significant. Also remember, I mentioned single mention names. There are other YHWH names such as the LORD of Hosts or LORD of the Sabbath, but they are used repeatedly. Jeremiah 23:6, 33:16 announces this name. 

When the Psalms transition from book to book, they end with a double amen (See Psalm 41 as an example as this Psalm is the end of the Genesis Psalms). This double use of the LORD our Righteousness is that place of transition. We are preparing to boldly enter the Throne of Grace in perfection--thus the seven. We are not perfected by our pathetic attempts but by Christ and His mercy alone. Offering my works is offering strange fire and is an affront to God's work in Christ. He is Savior, our Savior and not we ourselves. He is our righteousness. He perfects us to enter boldly through the prayer of faith that is directly related to His passion and sacrifice at the brazen altar!  Unless we come through the fire of His name and effort alone, we will be struck down in the attempt to enter further.

8. The Ark of the Covenant and YHWH Shamma--Ezekiel gives us that great vision of the LORD in the Millennial Temple where He is seen. The LORD is there, Ezekiel 48:35. It is the last word, the end of the story. However, it is not the end but a New Beginning as the number 8 signifies. The word for ark can also be translated as coffin and it is used that way in Genesis. When we bury ourselves in this most holy place,the LORD reigns over us (Psalm 91). We die to self and find life in the process. Not just any life, but a new beginning. This is the Secret Place! This is life beyond the veil. It is the chief goal of allowing Christ to reign over our lives so that all the world may know of His presence in us.  This is the place of Psalm 24--Christ the KING who we willingly allow to reign supreme in our lives.  Strive to enter this place!

Beware The Mark: Global Power

"I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom."
Daniel 7:21-22

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear.
Revelation 13:7-9

John and Daniel share one terrifying prerequisite for the False Prophet's ability to force a mark on all unbelieving souls during the Tribulation.  It is clear that the Antichrist and the False Prophet will assume total control over all humanity.  What most don't understand is the sovereignty of Almighty GOD in this scenario.  Why is this power allowed?  Again, man has repeatedly rejected God in the daily governance of life, so He is only giving them what they wish for a short season.  Ironic isn't it?  Men want to escape God's control but do not see that this escape puts them under the dominion of Satan.  Furthermore, were that short season not shortened, men would annihilate themselves from the planet in just over 7 Jewish lunar years time.  

It is this control during the Tribulation that is one of the many signals of the absence of the Church, Christ's Bride.  Jesus promised that the gates of Hell could not prevail against the church.  Like Job, if the enemy is to afflict the church he must do so by the LORD's permission under God's preset conditions.  These limits only allow a situation where believers turn to GOD wholeheartedly while removing things in their life that are displeasing as the Holy Spirit and the Word to bring revelation to God's child.  However, in the Tribulation the Antichrist is repeatedly said to have power over the Saints; therefore, this is not the church.  These are those who would not heed the call to salvation prior to the rapture.  Where does that leave you?

It is obvious to those paying attention that humanity is slowly loosing their freedoms in the countries where freedom once ruled.  Just today, an article was posted relating that homeschooling residents in Alberta, Canada do not have the right to teach their own children in their own home that homosexuality is a sin.  It is just one of many articles showing the beginnings of total control.   EXCLUSIVE: Homeschooling families can’t teach homosexuality a sin in class says Alberta gvmt |

In the United States, the President signed the National Defense Authorization Act on December 31, 2011 as the last official act of that year.  Many note that this was a holiday season so the populace was distracted.  In essence, the bill which 93 senators voted yes for, strips a citizen of his/her rights by claiming that the US is a war zone. Just last week, the law was enacted in a speech by the President.  Alongside this, discussion is now made about the power of the President to assassinate US citizens without due process if he deems them to be terrorists.  Thankfully, some states are now fighting this power grab. 

There are also repeated attempts to empower global government via the UN.  The point of this all is that we can begin seeing the framework for complete control now.  Join this with the articles on universal surveillance, technological advances for placing readable microchips in humans, and complete control of food and water, we can see that the fulfillment of Revelation 13 is close!  

Just a few short years of rule is all this destructive trio get.  Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet already have their destiny determined.  Under Christ's command, the Antichrist and the False Prophet are cast alive into the lake of eternal fire.  They are there alone until the end of Jesus' 1000 year reign.  Satan is cast into the abyss, but is loosed briefly for a short season at the end of the Millennial Reign.  He is then brought before all humanity where he will bow and proclaim Jesus Christ as LORD!  While these have a set destiny, you do not!  You can clearly choose Christ today!  Won't you do that now?  There is only one time in history when men will not be given a second chance and that is when they consciously accept the mark of the beast mid-way through the Tribulation. Please make the right choice now before that time arrives and you may make the wrong choice for the sake of convenience.  Don't delay! Certainly Jesus Christ is Soon2Come!

Beware the Mark of the Beast: Antichrist Control of Food and Water

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:16-17

Shortly after a pseudo-miracle, the False Prophet will institute the mark as a means of total control.  Those not accepting the mark will be put to death as Revelation 13:15 makes this clear.  "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."  Massive food and water shortages will evidently contribute to the "need" to control both.  Again, because man lives by God's word as well as physical food, humanity's rejection of the Word of God will force a situation where they will need to heed Satan and his False Prophet to eat.  What a terrible time!

This point is certainly proven as events in Revelation 6 remind us of global shortages and economic collapse.  John wrote of the dreaded black horse of famine riding worldwide.  One can almost hear foot stomps of this horse awaiting the pronouncement of the third seal. "And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine (Revelation 6:5-6)." It will take a days wages for a meager meal at this time.  What a terrible time!

Could we now be seeing the beginnings of the shortages as a warning of the nearness of the Antichrist and the ensuing Tribulation?  In scenes reminiscent to Hosea 4:1-3, the mysterious mass deaths of animals continue worldwide with one of the most recent being herd animals in the Middle East and Europe dying of either disease or mysterious causes.  The list of animal species succumbing to mass termination is staggering: fish, marine mammals, various birds, manatees, cattle, goats, big horn sheep, deer, starfish, and crabs just to name a few.  Some of the causes seemingly are identified while others are mysterious.  It is obvious that something is wrong; furthermore, the black horse of Revelation 6 will not be released until after the Tribulation begins.  Consequently, the bottom line is that natural means of obtaining food will be greatly diminished.  We are already seeing the beginning of sorrows!  What a terrible time!

Why not just plant a garden and live off of home grown vegetables while saving seed for the next season?  Unfortunately, this will not work either.  Large corporations now control nearly all seed sales.  Most seed available has been genetically modified and/or hybridized to the point that it will not yield adequate returns in future generations.  By the third generation of a garden with these modified seeds there will be no viable return.

Unmodified or non-hybridized seed, for the most part, has been confiscated and placed in storage facilities like the Svalbard Global Seed Vault located on the Norwegian Spitsbergen Island.  In essence, you are already dependent on large corporations like Monsanto for food. What happens when an evil ruler controls the world's food supply and the keys to the seed?  Less than 3 percent of the available seed has not been hybridized and laws in some places actually prevent their use for various excuses.

Entrance to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault

Recent news adds another bizarre twist to the control of food as well.  Scientists are diligently working to produce meat in laboratory settings.  Is there something they know that we don't about the availability of herd and poultry animals?  

What about water?  Do you know that many states in the US currently have laws on the books claiming that rain water is state owned?  A car sales owner recently found this out as he was fined for using the water accumulating on his auto dealership as a means of saving money used to buy water for washing cars.  Also, there have even been international discussions on placing all fresh water under global governance.  Like food production, all water may soon be regulated.  

Yesterday, I drove about 80 miles round trip in a triangle pattern through the country.  It used to be fairly common to see dead deer every few miles on a trip such as this.  Rather than seeing deer (I saw one), coyotes were along the roadside where deer may have once been seen.  There must have been around 10 dead coyotes which had been hit by traffic.  Where have all the deer gone in this state?  The point is that game and fish will eventually not be available as the terror called the Tribulation heats up.  

So much more needs to be said!  These are but the beginnings of signs and sorrows for a Christ rejecting world.  What about you?  Will you wait until it is too late and you must bow to Satan and assuredly go to Hell for accepting the mark or face martyrdom in the future? There is an escape now!  Will you accept the warnings and the grace of God now that is found in Jesus Christ?  Make your decision quickly!  Jesus Christ is Soon2Come!

Beware the Mark of the Beast: Preparations

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Revelation 13:16-18

The False Prophet, the devil's archetype of the Holy Spirit, is charged with drawing humanity into allegiance with the Antichrist.  John the Revelator saw his rise like a lamb with two horns, and the horns are symbolic of power in the physical and spiritual realms.  This deceiver is pictured as a lamb as he will appear to be a great religious leader striving for peace in the world; however, there is no peace without the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.  Therefore, the False Prophet's power is not from God. The Beloved Apostle makes this clear with the unveiling of his true power source, Satan.  He will speak with the power of that sly ol' dragon to deceive the masses.  

Mocking Christ's teaching that man does not live by bread alone, the False Prophet also seeks to control all commerce for the Antichrist with the mark of submission.  Without the mark, no man can eat.  Man will have to live, then, by the words of Satan in order to eat since they would not live by the Word of God that brings salvation.  The mark brings the opposite of salvation, however, damnation.  Obviously, the words of the satanic trinity are poison to the soul.

In order for the mark to be effective universally some important preparations would need to be in place. Unlike prior generations, these preparations are not only possible today, but they could easily be implemented now as they are visible to anyone searching.  The list of those conditions needed follows:
1.Universal surveillance
2.A means to make a traceable mark
3.United world government—Government as God
4.One international monetary unit
5.Complete control of all food and water
6. A means to incarcerate or eliminate dissenters
7. Control of media
8. The destruction of the concept of individual nations.
9. Voices calling for syncretism--the belief that there is no ultimate truth and all religion holds truth.

It would be impossible to review all nine of the above conditions, so only two will be considered in this post--universal surveillance and a traceable mark.  First, the means and methods to spy on the masses are here now.  One hint of this universal technology actually comes from the teachings of Jesus, himself, on the last days before His holy Millennial Reign.  But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. (Luke 21:9)  Jesus reveals that there will be much in the news.  Men will hear of earthquakes and disasters in other places--diverse places.  There will be droughts, and famines, and pestilences worldwide.  Also, there would be fearful signs seen in the sky.  How long do you think it would have taken in the 1800s and before to hear of a devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan?  Today, you hear about it in real time.  We also hear of wars and rumors of war in the Middle East as soon as it is reported.  There has never been the ability to report the news as there is today, and one part of news reporting is gathering information.  

Think of all of the different methods currently employable for watching individuals and gathering information: 

•Computer surveillance
•Telephones and mobile telephones
•Surveillance cameras
•Social Network Analysis
•Biometric surveillance
•Aerial surveillance
•Data mining & profiling
•Corporate Surveillance
•Human operatives
• Satellite Imagery
•Identification & Credentials
•Surveillance devices, or "bugs"
•Postal services
Is there any doubt that you are being watched?

Add to this the ability to insert some sort of technology into or onto the body of any human and the nightmare scenario of Revelation 13 becomes clearer.  That technology is already in place as well.  Like universal surveillance capabilities, it is also specific to this generation; therefore, it is yet another of the many signs that this is the time period that John and the other prophets saw.  The Tribulation is upon us.  Just consider a few of the following articles as proof.  However, before you do, get your heart right with God by calling on Christ for salvation.  Hurry!  Jesus Christ is Soon2Come!

666 Technology and Universal Surveillance

There is so much more news out there!  Are you paying attention to the signs of the times?
