How to Walk With God: Part 2 — Secrets of the Mind

We are often thrown many “curve balls” in the game of life. The opponents seem to think that only “idiots” would want to “walk with God”.

Others may consider it a “good idea” but are frustrated when their prayers are “not answered.” Some after trying hard to be a “good Christian” eventually give up and turn bitter against the whole thing.

To come to a place in life where you start to really walk with God is a great thing! And I am more and more convinced that as we approach the end of this age two things are about to happen.

1. Many will fail, turn bitter and hateful, and start living a miserable existence. as prophesied by Enoch, Daniel and Ezekiel:

2. But many will do the opposite. From Daniel 12:

Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end. Many will be cleansed and made spotless and purified. But the wrong-doers will continue to do wrong. None of the wrong-doers will understand, but those who have insight will understand.

There is one very surprising switch in this “time of the end” situation. Did you see it?

How to Walk with God — Part 1: Resetting Internal Meanings and Contexts

Can what we believe be “bad” for us? Of course! And It is hard for us to see that what we believe could be a great mistake, isn’t it? For example, where did you learn the meaning of the “sin”, which I don’t even like to use in writing? It is a “bad” and “unhealthy” word because it does not present an image of the truth, instead it triggers a very different meaning in our mind that is not Scriptural.

But before I begin let me tell you a personal story about this strange word “sin” …

When I was a teenager and, of course, very green, like a young “sapling,” I was asked to speak before a small assembly of adults and teenagers, in a “father and son” night. I really had no idea what to talk about, but as I sat fidgeting in my seat, a thought struck me: “I will talk about sin!” So when my name was called, I quickly stood up and strode to the lectern and proceeded to denounce “sin” in all its “forms” and finished by saying that I would devote my life to the “fight against sin.” You imagine the feedback I got from my tirade, can’t you?

I also got a smart lecture from my dad, who told me that I really shouldn’t talk like that to anybody. At the time, I didn’t understand what he was saying, and what I found out later was a revelation: people don’t like to be told they are “sinners” or because of sin, “they will all burn in hell.” Yikes!

You can see that this not what eternal life is all about, can’t you? And you don’t really believe that God is so cruel that all He wants to do is forever roast people over hot coals like a goat on a spit, do you? …

END TIME: Part 6 – Rich and Need Nothing? (Revised)

The last or seventh assembly of people has been called out to receive spiritual knowledge and to receive the promises for overcoming their dangerous situation. All of the messages to the seven assemblies are not only age transcending but also “end time” or, more exactly for our time: the end of the seventh age. These called-out people have existed in every generation from the time of Adam!

[First] [Prior] [Next]

The time is at hand during which all who are among the called-out ones must act quickly to change any of their unprofitable works into works of righteousness. This Bible study shows that this last assembly could apply to millions of people or to only thousands. These are the people of Laodicea.

Even though these are names of congregations found cities in Asia Minor during the time John was told to write down the words of the Book of Revelation, means little to us. The words spoken to each are far more important than any meaning applied to a name, except “Philadelphia ” (a love for the brothers), which seems to fit the works of the “loners.”

In the prior post in this Bible study series I referred to the “congregation of Satan” who said they were “Jews” but lied. The most fitting application of that turned out to be the followers of Herbert W. Armstrong who out of necessity created the Worldwide Church of God. It appears as though their intentions may have been “pure” in their own eyes, but their, works, particularly of the ministry, showed otherwise.

Does this group belong to any of the assemblies of Revelation chapters two and three?

END TIME: Part 5: The Righteous, the Blind and the Cults

The last two assemblies or groups of called-out people are probably the most well-known and the least understood. In the previous posts on the promises to overcomers, I wrote how all the problems that threatened the people were spiritual and caused by religions.

[First] [Prior] [Next]

In this Bible study we will see those who remained unaffected by religion and those who created their own. Remember all groups or assemblies of people written about in chapters two and three of the Book of Revelation consist of people who had received the call. But again, “Many are called.”

Why someone would want to create their own religion is not a big mystery. The biggest reason is because they don’t want to have anything to do with the religions that afflicted the other groups. Their eyes may have been opened to the problems of the other groups. But instead of moving into truth, they adopted traditions and practices from sources unknown to the other groups or assemblies, and made those their own. To quote the SNL Church Lady, “How convenient!”

Looking around to see how others “worship” and adopting their ways has been and still is the biggest step to creating a nation doomed to spiritual failure. The Unites States and all of Western civilization are nations that have done that.

The most difficult task is to become humble as a person and as a nation and learn the truth by obtaining the spiritual connection with Elah [God] and Eyahuwah, the One called LORD in the scriptures. In other words, returning to the righteousness of our fathers, from Adam, through Enoch, Noah and his sons, the fathers of all who live today, and through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, if you can call them your fathers. Then you will learn the truth; your life will be changed; your future will be assured; and you will fear nothing. This is true for individuals. It is true for nations.

CONTEXTUAL THOUGHT? Ahmadinejad, Academia, and the Next Age

After listening to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speak to the audience at Columbia, it became apparent that there was a “phenomena” at work in the minds of all who spoke that day. This is a mystery, because we are not aware of how this works even in our minds. I call this contextual thinking — and it affects our spiritual life!

When we are born, our minds are like a blank canvas. Rarely do we remember the first year or two of our lives. It is like a long drawn out process of awakening. But from the very beginning the context thought processes into which we are born begin to affect our mind and our accumulation of thoughts. Some may think this is another term for environment, but it is not limited to that. Environment is a factor, but there is more to thinking in context than we “think.”

END TIME: Part 4, More Promises for Overcomers

It should not be a surprise that the messages of chapters two and three of Revelation warn about the consequences of following harmful religious ideas. That is the message of both the Law and the Prophets. The context of religious thought, including the religions of atheism and the secular, has stood in the way of preventing individuals from truly walking with our Creator from the time of Adam to today.

[First] [Prior] [Next]

One reader wrote and was very upset that I did not teach from the Latin Vulgate translation that Jerome, commissioned by the Pope, created. But this fourth century translation caused more confusion and corruption of the Scriptures than any other document.

The Vulgate turned the meaning of the Scriptures on its head. “Faith” [fides] became a belief system taught by, guess who, the church. If a person was “faithful” [fidelis] they were “loyal” to the church. If you didn’t have this “faith” you were considered a “heretic.” “Oh, come all ye faithful [adeste fidelis],” sung every year at Christmas time, implies that if you are NOT one of the “faithful,” (as defined by the church) then “stay away.”

END TIME: Part 3, Promises to Overcomers living in the midst of trouble

This Bible study shows that big promises are made to those who qualify to be called Overcomers. Eternal life is certainly among them. But the promises tell more about the quality of life that Overcomers will share beginning now and in the next age.

[First] [Previous][Next]

In the previous parts of this Bible study series, I tried to set the stage for the world system that will dominate the earth after the current age (the Seventh) ends and the Age of Right Rule (the Eighth) becomes established. It is during the Eighth age that rewards will be given to all who overcame during the first seven ages of Enoch’s vision.

Being an overcomer or conqueror has little to do with what one does in a religion. Being a deacon or elder in a church, or even a pastor, is not synonymous with being an overcomer. The deeper one gets into a religion, the more overcome a person becomes. The influence of politics, club memberships, education, media, friends, family, among other things do not dominate the day to day life of the overcomer.

Overcoming means transcending all forces of this world that can take control of our thoughts and motivations. As I wrote in the part 2, among the greatest threat is being overcome by world-sponsored deception.

In chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation is a description of problems faced, not by “churches,” but by groups of people. These people are described as living in different cities that have unique environments. Each environment is a threat to individual spiritual life that could keep those who are part of each group from being part of the “better resurrection” at the start of next age. Each person in each group has been “tapped” or “called out” to be aware of the problems facing the group and is encouraged to conquer or overcome that which can conquer them.

Let’s examine in this Bible study both the problems of each group and the promises made to those who successfully overcome them.

I am the First and the Last and the living One. And I become dead, and see, I am living forever and ever. And I possess the keys of the grave and of death.

The Secret of the seven stars, which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the messengers of the seven assemblies [groups], and the seven lampstands, which you saw, are the seven assemblies. Rev. 1:20 (The Scriptures)

The called-out people at “Ephesus”

A message is given to the Messenger of the group.

Are they (the messengers) not all serving spirits sent out to attend those who are about to inherit deliverance? Hebrews 1:14

First, the speaker identifies himself. This also tells something that this group needs to know.

He who is holding the seven stars in His right hand, who is walking in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says this:

(To His disciples and called-out ones He promised to be with them always, even to the end of the age. That includes our age!)

I know your works, and your labor, and your endurance, and that you are not able to bear evil ones, and have tried those who say they are emissaries and are not, and have found them false [a reference to Paul and his followers], and you have been bearing up and have endurance, and have labored for My Name’s sake and have not become weary.

They have good works and have resisted those who tried to lead them astray. However,

But I hold this against you: you have left your first love! So remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent!

Yet this you have, that you hate the works of the Nikolaites, which I also hate.

“Nikolaites” is considered by some to refer to the “followers of Nikolaus.” However, it is more than that as it refers in verse 14 to those who hold “the teachings of Balaam.” The word is a combination of two Greek sounds: nikos and laites and is a poetic metaphor for the Greek words: nikos and laites, which means “those who conquer or are victorious (nikos) and take people captive (laites).” Its Hebrew counterpart signifies the “destruction of the the people.” The word is a coded word subject to a kind of metanalysis. It was written in the Bible to encapsulate a message to be deciphered later. Given what we know now, the coded-word is a clear reference to the “false apostles,” including Paul, the Pharisee, and his cohorts, who did lead the people to destruction by teaching them to follow in Balaam’s deceitful way (2 Peter refers to this.)

In Bible study meetings, I have taught the Book of Revelation many times. But never has this word made more sense. Even in theology classes, this word remained a mystery. To unravel this I used the Greek – English Lexicon by James Donnegan, published in 1840, which covers more words than will be found in any theologically limited Greek lexicon.

Most theological Greek lexicons have no meaning for the word and hence it has only been transliterated in the English translations, including The Scriptures translation, which doesn’t even have a footnote on the word. Or it is attributed to Nikolaus for which there is little information that we can use. This word is a real Bible code.

The promise to this group:

He who has an ear, let him [or her] hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him [or her] who overcomes I shall give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of Elahim.

Note that this promise is not limited to this one group. It is given to all the groups of called-out ones, the “assemblies” plural.

What does it mean to eat “from the tree of life?” We know the consequences of eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That is our life now! This tree of life is described to be in the midst of the paradise or “garden of pleasure, beauty, and life” of Elahim. Paradise is not some ethereal place where you go after you die to await some future judgment. In the next age this will be a real place on earth where only those who are in the Family of Elahim can enter. In other worlds, only those who overcome now — during this time of the seven ages revealed to our father Enoch — will have the right to enter. They will eat of this tree and live forever. That is the promise to those who overcome.

To the called-out people at “Smyrna”

Keep in mind that the city in this list is of lesser importance than what is happening there. Each is a worldly place where those who have been called out need to overcome and survive. Each place is “evergreen” and applies to all who have been called out of the world regardless of the place of abode and time.

And to the messenger of the assembly [or group of called-out ones] in Smyrna, write: ‘This says the First and the Last, who became dead, and came to life.’

Very similar to what was said to the first group above. The repetition emphasizes the importance of the statement. Why? Because of what is yet to come.

I know your works, and pressure [tribulation,], and poverty (yet you are rich,) and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yehudim (Jews) and are not, but are a congregation of Satan [the adversary].

Who are these? Again it falls on the head of Paul and his followers. The result of his teachings produced “Christian” organizations — powerful religions who used death and torture to coerce people into submission. They claimed that they came from Peter, a man of Yehuda, but in reality they followed Paul, a Pharisee and descendant of Benjamin to whom Israel said little concerning spiritual leadership:

Benjamin is a wolf that tears; in the morning he eats prey and at night he divides the spoil. Genesis 49:27

Without question this is what Paul built from his teachings!

Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. See, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, in order to try you, and you shall have pressure ten days. Be trustworthy [faithful] until death, and I shall give you the crown of life.

This is the future of any and all who guard the words of Eyahushuah and prove trustworthy; who are rich in Spirit, not from this world. Again, in the face of death, life is promised. Not just any life, but eternal life:

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He [again, or she] who overcomes shall by no means be harmed by the second death!

The called-out people at “Pergamos”

Here is a group of people right in the thick of it:

And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, ‘He who has the sharp two-edged sword.”

Because of Paul’s teachings we think of the sword of the as the “Word of God.” This waters-down the meaning used in the Scriptures:

And the word of Eyahuwah came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face toward the mountains [nations] of Israel, and prophecy against them.”

And you shall say, “O mountains [nations] of Israel, hear the word of the Master Eyahuwah.” Thus said the Master Eyahuwah to the mountains [great nations], to the hills [small nations], to the ravines and to the valleys [anything in between], “Look, I Myself am bringing a sword against you, and I shall destroy your high places [places of worship], and your altars shall be ruined, your sun-pillars (crosses, steeples) shall be broken in pieces. And I shall make your slain fall in front of your idols, and lay the corpses of the children of Israel in front of their idols, and scatter your bones all around your altars.” (from Ezekiel 6, the entire chapter carries this message.)

Continuing with the message to the group at Pergamos:

I know your works, and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is. And you hold fast to My Name, did not deny the belief [trust] in me, even in the days in which Antipas was my trustworthy witness, who was killed near you, where Satan dwells.

“Antipas” is another Bible code word. It means “against the whole thing” referring, of course, to the ways of the world and all its teachings and, in particular, to all the world’s religious systems. This could also prophesy about the two witnesses, whose message and works the whole world will hate! “Killed near you” today means somewhere in the civilized world where communication can take the event to the rest of the world in an instant.

Religion, again, is a big part of the message to this group:

But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teachings of Balaam, who taught Balaq to put a stumbling-block before the children of Israel, to eat food [spiritual nourishment] offered to idols, and to commit whoring [adultery or worshiping other "gods"]. So you also have those adhere to the teaching of the Nikolaites, which I also hate.

The theme comes back only this time much stronger than before. Here the people are in the middle of it all. We are back again to even greater spiritual problems because of Paul and his followers. In this situation, the called-out ones are not only living in a place where they are surrounded by spiritual degradation but also those who follow these things are among the called-out ones!

Repent or else I shall come to speedily and fight against them with the sword of My mouth. He who has an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.

To him [or her] who overcomes I shall give a white stone and on the stone a renewed Name written which no other one knows except him [or her] who receives it.”

What name is on the stone? You will need to overcome to be qualified to receive it.

So far each of the groups or assemblies of called-out people has to overcome, not bad habits, but the corrupting and destructive influence of the world’s religions, including the Christian religion that grew from Paul’s teachings.

“He [or she] who has an ear, let him hear.”

To be continued …

END TIME: Part 2, Birth Pains of the New World Start Now

The end of the age prophecies proclaim one thing: either you overcome the world now, or the world will be taken from you and replaced by a world run by the Overcomers. In other words, if you are an Overcomer, you are entitled to receive a promise of sovereignty and eternal life.

[Previous] [Next]

It is hard to imagine, but the prophecies of Scripture show that the next age, the eighth of Enoch’s vision, will be unlike anything humanity has ever experienced. Mankind has never lived during a time of right-ruling. There have been brief times in the history of the nation of Israel, when the kings and priests came close to ruling with righteousness, such as, during the time of King David, but even that time had its problems and failures.

In this Bible study series we will learn that the world and all the stuff in it, that existed from Adam to the time of the end of our age, the place we call “home” and get “goose-pimples” over, will cease to be: nations will lose their leaders; religions will be destroyed; educational systems will cease; entertainment industries will be shut down. Anything that we know of in this world will collapse around us. Those who proved that they could not overcome the world will find that the world that overcame them will no longer exist.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the “world” means the earth. The “world” is not the product of the earth. The “world” has been created by the people over millennia. It doesn’t represent the best that the people can do. The idea that “every day and in every way, we are getting better and better” is not true. Thinking that we have evolved to the point that we are “enlightened” and “we now know better” is form of insanity. “This is not the 90s, when we were dumb.” This is the 21st century when we got “dumberer“! That should be obvious if you watch TV and pay attention to the news.

The primary definition of “world” from Merriam Websters Collegiate Dictionary, 10th Edition is “the earthly state of human existence.” That “state” is what we “love” or “hate” about our life. And that is what is going to change beginning now and continuing to the next age.

This is what Eyahuwah of armies, the Almighty says:

In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Delight of all nations, and I shall fill this House with esteem. The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine. Let the esteem [high regard] of this House be greater than the former. And in this place I give peace. Haggai 2

Nothing that we have ever known or experienced throughout the entire span of human life to this day will be viewed with the profound high regard and praise for the world that is about to come.

Who then will be the rulers at that time? Will it be ruled by angels, as some think? From where will these come?

In the Book of Revelations they are given a “new” name: The Overcomers.

The first of the seven seals, when opened, unleashed a very powerful force upon the people of earth.

And I looked and saw a white horse, and he who sat on it holding a bow. And a crown was given to him, and he went out overcoming and to overcome. 6:2 (The Scriptures)

Many assume that this must refer to “Jesus” and in that they are partly right. It appears to be a “Jesus” but it is not One who is Trustworthy and True, who has many crowns and comes to smite the nations described in Revelation 19.

This single-crowned one is a deceiver, a conqueror of the people with a religious message about “Jesus.” This one overcomes or conquers the people with a “Christian” message not taught by either Eyahushuah or the apostles and prophets.

“Multitudes will come in My Name claiming that I am the Messiah and will deceive the masses.” Matthew 24:5 (from the Greek)

As a consequence of unleashing this powerful force upon the world, many have been overcome.

Is not the world supposed to be “saved” by “Jesus”?

Yes, but not by the “Jesus” around which so many many religions have been created. The Christian churches are founded upon the teachings of Paul, the Pharisee. He preached “another Jesus” but he also accused the apostles of doing the same, that is, Paul accused them of preaching a “Jesus” and a “gospel” that was different from what he taught. The apostles did not consider Paul to be an authority, and they did not preach Paul’s message, and they did not recognize his claim of apostleship.

Peter said, regarding the position that opened up after Judas hanged himself, “May another take his place of leadership.” (A quote from Psalm 109.)

And then according to the book of Acts, Peter went on to say:

Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who has been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from John’s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must be a witness with us of his resurrection. Acts 1:21-22 NIV

Paul had none of these qualifications, although he claimed to have been a witness to Jesus’ resurrection. He wrote, “last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.” To back up this claim, Paul had Jesus quote from the Greek poets! Also there were no witnesses to Paul’s experience, although he gave contradictory statements regarding his supposed witnesses to his “epiphany.”

The world will be saved only by the One whose name is “The Word of Eyahuwah.” Rev 19:13, John 1. Is this a mystery?

Why allow deception?

The answer is directly tied to the ultimate role that will be identified with the overcomers. For that we must start at the beginning of the Book of Revelation where the foundation is built. From The Scriptures translation, the book starts:

Revelation of Eyahushuah the Messiah, which Elah have Him to show His servants what has to take place with speed. And He signified it by sending His messenger to His servant Yohanan (John). 1:1

The revelation is not John’s revelation, but rather the revelation given to Eyahushuah, the Messiah, (Chosen and Anointed One) from Elah. Also the revealed events were to begin very quickly.

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and guard what is written in it, for the time is near.

John, to the seven assemblies that are in Asia, Favor to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is coming, and from the seven Spirits that are before His throne, and from Eyahushuah, the Messiah, the trustworthy witness, the first-born from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings (sovereigns) and priests to His Elahim (Family) and Father (Elah).

The last paragraph is usually glossed over with a statement like “Yes, yes. We know all about this.” But there are several things said here that are thematic to the entire Revelation.

The One “who is and who was and who is coming,” is not the one we all Jesus. We will find out just who this One is and why His coming is so important and why this Revelation is about everything that must be done between now and that event. This distinction is made clear in this context. Notice that Eyahushuah is separated from “Him who is and who was and who is coming” by “the seven Spirits” acknowledgment. That, Eyahushuah (“Jesus”) and He “who is, was and is coming,” are two different Entities is important in understanding the Book of Revelation. And why we must act now to prepare for this change. The only way to do that is to become an overcomer!

After the seventh trumpet sounds these things are proclaimed:

“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Messiah (chosen and anointed One), and He shall reign for ever and ever.”

And the twenty-four elders sitting before Elah on their thrones fell on their faces and worshipped Elah, saying

“We give thanks to You, Lord Elah Almighty, who is and who was, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign. The nations were angry and Your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding Your servants the prophets and Your set-apart ones and those who reverence Your name, both small and great — and for destroying those who destroy the earth.”

Again, two Entities are mentioned. This has always been a troubling phrase in Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” from The Messiah. But it means what it says. It identifies who is in charge of what is about to happen. The Book of Revelation from Elah and given to Eyahushuah makes a clear distinction between the two from beginning to end — something that has been overlooked until now.

In chapter 11:17 some eager translator or scribe must have thought that the phrase “who is coming” was accidentally left out and added it and therefore it appears in some translations. But this was not the correct thing to do as the phrase “who was and who is” is correct and the context declares why. The Westcott and Hort Greek text did not even mention a “who is coming” phrase and documented that the only alternate rendering of that phrase is the word “and” between “was” and “because”: “who is and who was, [and] because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign.” (NIV)

At the time of the end of the seventh age, One, Elah, is taking control of the affairs on earth and will continue to rule for ever and ever — throughout all ages to come. So at the instant this happens, it is no longer appropriate to say “who is and who was and who is to come” because the third part will have been fulfilled. There is no future “who is to come.” Then and forever after, it is only correct to say “who is and who was!”

This then is a time of great reward for those who overcame the world, before its systems are rendered null and void.

Enoch wrote (Chapter 1):

The Holy Great One [Elah] will come forth from His dwelling, and the Eternal Elah will tread upon the earth, and shall appear from His camp and appear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens. And all shall be smitten with fear, and the Watchers shall quake, and great fear and trembling shall seize them to the ends of the earth. And the high mountains [great nations] shall be shaken, and the high hills [small nations] shall be made low, and shall melt like wax before the flame. And the earth shall be wholly rent in sunder, and all that is upon the earth shall perish [governments, institutions, religions, politics, isms, causes, traditions, interpretations, etc]. And there shall be judgment upon all Mankind.

But with the righteous He shall make peace, and will protect the chosen, and mercy shall be upon them. And they shall all belong to Elah, and they shall be prospered, and they shall all be blessed. And He will help them all, and light shall appear to them, and He will make peace with them.

And behold, He comes with ten thousands of His holy ones to execute judgment upon all, and to destroy all the ungodly, and to convict all flesh of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

To look to the future through the fogginess created by the deceivers has now become more deadly than ever. We have this time to overcome the world and its “things” and make certain now that we are ready to enter an even greater life than we can imagine. This is a time for “casting away!” From Ezekiel 18:

The Master Eyahuwah says:

“And the House of Israel [an archetype of humanity] have said, ‘ The way of Eyahuwah is not right.’ Are My ways not right, O House of Israel? Is it not your ways that are not right?

“Therefore I judge you, O House of Israel, every one according to his [or her] ways. Repent and turn back from your transgressions, and let not crookedness be a stumbling-block to you. Cast away from you all the transgressions by which you have transgressed, and make for yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O House of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies. So turn back and live!”

PROPHECY: Part 6, The 1,335 Days Spans Two Ages!

In the first five posts of this Bible study series I explained the keys to understanding the mystery of the 1335 days. These include the calendar revealed to Enoch, the Feasts and High days revealed to Moses, and the periods of time for the end-of-the-age events that were revealed to Daniel and to John. I also showed the start and the end of the 1,335 days. Now learn why that day is so important!

[First] [Previous]

The 1,335 Days Prophecy Revealed

For the Master, Yahua, does no matter unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. Amos 3:7

The 1,335 begins with the death of the two-witnesses at the time when the beast was given power over the set-apart ones. He was given this power for the period that marks the last three and one half years of the seventh age, our age.

But the resurrection of the two-witnesses three and one half days later offers hope to the righteous and the elect, and the set-apart ones are encouraged to have patience during the last three and one half years, and to wait for the day that marks the end of the 1,335 day waiting period.

The death of the two-witnesses comes after another three and one half year period or 42 months during which they prophesied over the earth and its people. The day they were killed will be the same day as the Feast of Trumpets or Shouting, which is the first day of the seventh month on Enoch’s calendar, and this is also the fall equinox.

One thousand three hundred thirty five days from that High day takes us to another very important High Day on the 15th day of the third month during the first year of the Eighth Age.

Enoch’s year is counted as 360 days, regardless of how many actual days, as we experience them, occur during a solar year. Therefore 1,335 days is equal to 360 + 360 + 360 +180 + 30 + 30 +15.

Now lets study the events of that day as given to Moses in the Law or Torah

The final day of the 1,335 days occurs on the 15th day of the third month during the first year of the Eighth Age, after the beast and false prophet are destroyed and the righteous and elect are raised up from the dead. This day is a very special High Day and Feast.

This High Day is the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Firstfruits. Some call this “Pentecost.” This High Day is linked to a special day, known to very few, that happens after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a seven-day Feast that starts on the 15th day of the first month. The Feast of Unleavened Bread ends on sunset of the 21st day of the month.

Then on the first day of the following week, a Wave Sheaf offering is made, along with other sacrifices. Then starting from that day the people were to count seven complete weeks.

From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the Wave Offering, count off seven full weeks. Leviticus 23:15

This symbolizes the completion of the first seven “weeks” or ages given to Enoch by a vision. The very next day, after the seven weeks are complete, is the 50th day. This is also the “first day of the Eighth Week” and is the 15th day of the third month. It is called the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Firstfruits.

During the period starting from the day after the end of the Feast of Unleavened Bread until the Wave Sheaf offering the people were instructed by the Law:

And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim — a law forever throughout all your generations in all your dwellings. Leviticus 23

In other words, this was a time when NO grain was to be eaten. This is separate from the Feast of Unleavened Bread during which only unleavened bread was to be eaten, and that was for seven days. But during this short time of only four days, no grain, either roasted or new, was to be eaten.

Then, after a period that represents the seven “weeks” or ages of Enoch, another special offering was to be offered to “your Elohim.”

Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath, you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to Yahua.

From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour, baked with yeast, as a Wave Offering of Firstfruits to Yahua.

The Law describes other sacrifices for the day after the weekly Sabbath day during the Feast of Unleaved Bread. This is special first day of the week.

Yet even more sacrifices are required for the Feast of Firstfruits. None of the other Feast Days and High Days have such elaborate sacrificial duties.

On the first day of the week when the Wave Sheaf was offered:

And on the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Yahua, and its grain offering: two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to Yahua, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering of a hin of wine.

Then on the first day of the week which is the 15th day of the third month on the Feast of Firstfruits:

And beside the bread [the Wave Offering], you shall bring seven lambs a year old, perfect ones, and one young bull and two rams. They are a burnt offering to Yahua, with their grain offering and their drink offering, an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance to Yahua. And you shall offer one male goat as a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a peace offering. And the priest shall wave them, beside the bread of the first fruits, as a wave offering before Eyahuwah, besides the two lambs. They are set apart to Yahua for the priest.

If you were to evaluate the significance of a Feast and High day by the number and quality of the sacrifices made during that day, the Feast of Firstfruits ranks at the top!

As noted in other posts in this series, the coming fulfillment of the Feast of Firstfruits is one of the greatest days in the history of the human race.

In the future, at the end of the 1,335 days which is the Feast of Firstfruits, all who overcame the world (the seven lamps) during the prior seven ages of human life, will now come together, as the Wave Loaves, to ascend to Their Father and to Their Elohim, to be accepted into the Family, now as Sons of Elohim.

Eyahuwah/Eyahushuah (the one young bull) is the Firstfruit represented by the Wave Sheaf and the one perfect lamb, and He was sacrificed before the foundation of the world.

Then an innumerable mass of people from every tribe, language, and nation who washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, are the Firstfruits, represented by the Wave Loaves and the seven lambs.

The sacrifices is symbolic of the blood they all shed (a burnt offering or an offering made by fire), and the sin they overcame, and of the greatness of Elohim who, before the universe was created, had been looking forward to THIS DAY!

The Two Wave Loaves

When the two wave loaves are made they start as one pile of bread dough made with leaven. Leaven is a symbol of sin. At the right time the one pile of dough is cut into two identical loaves. This is a symbol of Man being separated into two: a male and a female. This was not by taking a single “rib.” The Hebrew literally means a “side.” From Man came both man and woman, male and female. Man was made in the image and likeness of Elohim. After the resurrection to eternal life there is no sexual distinction. The new immortal body is neither male or female. Therefore, the two Wave Loaves represent man and woman both taken from Man, and now ascending to their Father and to their Family Elohim as individual and equal Sons of EL.

This event is the BIG day for which we must cleanse ourselves and prepare, and having prepared, then we must earnestly wait for that day.

The promise is no heaven or hell after we die. It is eternal life as a member of the Family of Elahim, after the resurrection from the dead. It is on the 1,335 day that we ascend to our Father. Those who fail to prepare and do not believe the prophecies of this great news can only look forward to a resurrection to a time of judgment during which time they will learn the knowledge of Yahua. They will all be taught by Him! But they will have no part in the events at the end of the 1,335 days: The Feast celebrating the Firstfruits!

Here are some interesting insights to the Wave Sheaf and Loaves.

The Wave Sheaf is offered when the Seven Weeks [the world] begins:

And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear, knowing that you were redeemed [purchased] from your futile way of life inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless [perfect], foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for your sakes, who through Him believe in EL, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him esteem, so that your belief and expectation are in EL! I Peter 1:17-21

What this is saying, and is supported by other Scriptures, is that the plan created before the universe began included the atoning and redeeming sacrifice. Therefore, the sacrifice that took place on Passover and the symbolic Wave Sheaf offering made on the first day of the week after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, establishes the symbol of the first “seven weeks” of human existence! So during this time we can observe both the actual events combined with the symbols.

This also applies to the events leading up to the Feast of Weeks/Firstfruits. Speaking both of the symbols and the actual fulfillment, after the end of the period of the “seven weeks”, a new age is established and the rule over the earth and its people is given to the righteous, those who overcame the world during the first seven ages. These, like their Brother, ascend and are presented to their Father and their Elohim [Family] at the Feast of Firstfruits. They all died not having received what was promised and they trusted EL to also raise them from grave. They like their Brother gained the right to be called the Sons of EL, only this time on the actual fulfillment day: the Feast of Firstfruits, which is the end of the 1,335 days!

While writing this Bible study I have been pouring over the book of Hebrews [IBRIM] because this understanding is its main subject. Here is just a sample from The Scriptures translation:

For it was fitting for Him, because of Whom all are and through Whom all are, in bringing MANY SONS to esteem, to make the Princely Leader of their deliverance perfect through sufferings. For both He who sets apart and those who are set-apart are all of One [FAMILY (NIV)], for which reason He is not ashamed to call them BROTHERS, saying, “I shall announce Your Name to My brothers, in the midst of the congregation I shall sing praise to You.”

Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself shared in the same, so that by means of His death He might destroy him having the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver those who throughout their life were held in slavery by fear death. For, doubtless, He does not take hold of messengers [angels], but He does take hold of the seed of Abraham!

So in every way He had to made like His brothers, in order to become a compassionate and trustworthy High Priest in matters relating to Elohim, to make atonement for the sins of the people. For in what He had suffered, Himself being tried, He is able to help those who are tried.

And as it awaits men to die once, and after this the judgment, so also the Messiah, having been offered to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to those waiting for Him, unto deliverance.

The cry of the people rings out to Elohim at the time of the death of the two witnesses (the two rams), who had been their help for three and one half years. The two-witnesses are raised up by Elohim after three and one half days to encourage the people who believed! Now the time of patience and waiting also begins until the return of Yahua/Yahushua who delivers his people on the first day of the first year of that age and raises them ALL from the dead. Seventy five days later, the waiting comes to an end at the Feast of Firstfruits, when the righteous ascend to their Father and their Elohim [Family].

The rest of people on earth look on feeling both sadness and mourning mixed with hope that at some time in the future they will be added to the highly esteemed Family of EL: Elohim.

What you have read in this six part series is the true meaning of the 1,335 days.

It is no longer sealed. We are now at the time in the history of humanity when these things will shortly come to pass. It is time now to prepare and get ready. It is a time to make straight paths for our feet.

GOSPEL: Baptism, Anointing and the Laying on of Hands

Baptism by full immersion, anointing with oil and the laying on of hands to receive the Spirit of Elahim changed my life. I remember the day as though it happened yesterday. When I returned home that evening, I was surprised to find that there was something new in me that gave me power and understanding that I didn’t have before. From that time on my life proceeded on a new path that led me to where I am today.

Should you be baptized? Should you receive the laying on of hands?

I think so, if you have the desire, and commitment and if you believe what the Scriptures say about these personal rituals.

Is it needed for salvation? No, but it does witness to your belief and commitment. It is a positive step and an action based upon what you understand and know. It may carry you further on the path to righteousness than if you didn’t have it. The reason I can say this is because of the fact that these simple acts dramatically changed my life, as surprising as that may sound in this cynical world.

Also it does not require that you join any church or sect. As John wrote, you do not need anyone to teach you, the anointing, and the spirit will lead you into all truth!

I have written this to you concerning those who lead you astray. But the anointing that you have received from Him stays in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as that same anointing does teach you concerning all, and is true, and is no falsehood, and even as it has taught you, you stay in Him. I John 2:26-27

Also to face the troubles coming in the next few years, you will want to be fully equipped as a soldier for battle. Trying to find this through religions that are marked for destruction is neither helpful or profitable for you. What you really need to crossover from darkness to light, from delusion to the Truth, from helplessness to power is something that delusional religions cannot offer you.

If you have read or listened to my posts and podcast, you may have noticed that I do not speak or write as others do, nor do I speak on behalf of any church, school, or synagogue. But I speak the truth of Elahim as it has been revealed to me through the anointing that I received. But what I have can be yours also, if you believe and recognize that you need to look forward to the future with hope in the faithfulness of Eyahuwah. You need to have Eyahuwah lead you through the word given to Enoch, Moses, the Prophets and Apostles. That is what the subtitle to this blog says.

Baptism (immersion) is an outward expression of an inward conviction. It holds the same meaning to a spirit-led life as a marriage ceremony does to a marriage. But for those who have been set-apart and called by Elahim, that outward expression combined with the anointing with oil and the laying on of hands can do wonders in your life.

This is adult business and was never intended for babies and those who are under age. When they are adults then they can make their own decisions. Infant baptism is another scare tactic of the religions to keep you and your family under their control. No baby is not going  be saved because they were not baptized. Saving is the job of Eyahuwah, and religions have no part in it. According to the scriptures many adults will be saved even though they may not have been baptized, anointed, and had hands layed on them.

Can you be baptized? Yes.

Can you receive the anointing with oil and the laying on hands to receive the Spirit of Elahim? Yes.

It depends upon what you believe and your level of commitment.

Eyahushuah gave a command to his “taught-ones”:

And Eyahushuah came up and spoke to them saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make taught ones of all the nations, immersing them in [into] the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the set-apart Spirit, teaching them to guard all that I have commanded you. And see, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

What is the Name of the Father and the Son? It is Elahim. 

For both He who sets-apart and those who are being set apart are all of One [Family (NIV)], for which reason He is not ashamed to them brothers. Hebrew 2:11) 

Eyahushuah said to her [Miryam from Magdala], “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. But go and tell my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My Elahim and your Elahim.’ ” John 20:17

“Elahim” and “Family” in this context are one and the same.
