One of the biggest and most hope filled prophecies concerns the resurrection of the elect. However, this has been buried in the morass of religious dogma. Rather than teach what the Scriptures say, they would rather keep the world in ignorance and their followers slaves.
The problem for Christianity comes from hanging on to the teachings of Paul, the Pharisee, and for others on the rest of the Pharisees down through the ages. Paul said “we see through a dark glass.” It is time to remove Paul’s dark glasses, and look at what the scriptures say, face to face. The Christian religions are so deceived by Paul’s private interpretations that any prophecy, promise, and covenant is viewed only through him.
This is about to collapse and the religions along with it.
Some will argue, “How can you say these things? Paul is our apostle and we follow him to the letter. If we stop we will not know how to conduct our selves in the churches.” Every Sunday and during the traditional Wednesday night Bible study, regardless of the subject, one can hear quotes from Paul’s letters. Thus everything in Scripture becomes filtered, discolored, or rendered null and void by Paul’s pharisaical speculations. In the minds of those deceived by this, Paul replaces the writings of the Apostles, the teachings of Jesus/Eyahushuag, and the promises and covenants made between Eyahuwah and our fathers. This was Paul’s intent and was an outgrowth of his high level training as a Pharisee.
But Christian are not alone. The people of Judea also fell under the same curse, only more so. A transition happen during the time they were taken into exile in Babylon. During that time the Pharisees, who were laymen and not Levites, hijacked the Hebrew Scriptures and replaced it with the Babylonian Talmud, which consists of more than five and half million words. In it are rules, laws, and other imposing statements to control every moment of a person’s life, including such things as how many knots you can tie or untie on the Sabbath. The many rules that Paul imposed upon the “churches” are an outgrowth of this way of thinking.
Read the rebuke that Jesus/Eyahushuag leveled against the Scribes and Pharisees:
But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for you neither go in yourselves nor do you allow them that are entering to go in.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers: therefore you shall receive the greater condemnation.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel over sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twice more the child of hell than yourselves.
Woe to you, you blind guides, who say, “Who ever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but who ever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! You fools and blind: which is greater, the gold, or the temple that makes the gold holy?
And, Who ever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but who ever swears by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. You fools and blind: which is greater, the gift, or the altar that makes the gift holy?
Therefore, who that will swear by the altar, swears by it, and by all things that are on it, and who that will swear by the temple, swears by it, and by him that dwells in it. And he that swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God, and by him that sits thereon.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith. These you ought to have done, and not to leave the other undone. You blind guides, you strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. You blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets, and decorate the sepulchers of the righteous, and say, “If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.” Wherefore you are witnesses to yourselves that you are the children of them who killed the prophets.
Fill up then the measure of your fathers. You serpents, offspring of vipers! How can you escape the judgement of Gehennal?
Therefore, Look! I am sending to you prophets, wise men, and scribes. Some of them you will kill and crucify, some of them will you scourge in your synagogues, and some you will persecute from city to city that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar. Truly I say to you, all these things will come upon this brood and their offspring.
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you kill the prophets and stone them who are sent to you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you would have nothing to do with that! But look, your house is left to you empty. Matthew 23:13-38
The Pharisees to this day have succeeded in kidnapping and controlling the lives of those who call themselves Christians and those who follow Judaism. This is exactly what Jesus/Eyahushuag prophesied:
Multitudes will come using my name, claiming that I am the Christ, and will deceive the masses.
False messiahs and prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the very elect – if that were possible. Look! I have told you this ahead of time.
The post-exilic prophet Zechariah wrote:
On that day there will be a spring opened up for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for cleansing and for purification. It will happen on that day – the word of HASHEM, Master of Legions – that I will eliminate the names of the idols from the land, and they will not be mentioned again; and I will also remove the [false] prophets and the spirit of impurity from the land. It will happen when a man will prophesy [falsely] in the future, that his father and his mother, those who bore him, will say to him, ‘You should not live for you have spoken falsehood in the name of HASHEM!’ His father and his mother, those who bore him, will stab him [injure him] when he prophesies.
It will happen on that day, the prophets will be ashamed each one of his vision when he prophesies it, and they will no longer wear the fur cloak [pious garments] in order to declare their lies. Rather, he will say, ‘I am not a prophet! I am a worker of the land, for a person took me as an herdsman from my youth.’ And [if] someone will say to him, ‘What are these scars between your arms?’ He will say, ‘It is from when I was beaten in the house of those who love me.’
O sword, arouse against “My shepherd”; against the man who is “My Colleague.” -the word of HASHEM, Master of Legions – Strike the “shepherd” [who harmed My people instead of helping them] and let the flock disperse [ be free to escape.] And I will turn my hand against the lesser leaders – [against the subordinates who helped molest Israel.]
Zechariah 13:1-7 and footnotes, From the Stone Edition of the Tanach, Mesorah Publication.
Masses of people through the ages have invested their lives in both believing and teaching falsehood and deception. For those, who are now in this position, the transition from falsehood to truth will be extremely painful. Thus the resurrection of the elect, not the righteous, will include all the deceivers along with the people they deceived, that is, if these are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
The righteous, as noted, come from all people, languages, and nations during the time of the seven “weeks” or ages of Enoch’s vision. The elect come from the whole House of Israel (Jacob) revealed in both Daniel’s and Ezekiel’s vision.
But the path that the elect will follow at the end of this age to the time of the Great Resurrection is a time of rebuke and discipline.
“Therefore, as I live,” says the Eyahuwah Elahim, “Surely, because you have defiled my sanctuary with all your detestable things, and with all your abominations, therefore will I also diminish you. Neither will my eye spare nor will I have any pity. A third part of you will die with the pestilence and with famine shall they be consumed in your midst. And a third part will fall by the sword around about you. And I will scatter a third part in all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.
“Thus will my anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted. And they will know that I, Eyahuwah (YHWH, Yahweh), have spoken it in my zeal, and have accomplished my fury in them. Moreover I will make you waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about you, in the sight of all that pass by. So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment to the nations that are round about you, when I will execute judgments in you in anger, fury, and furious rebukes. I, Eyahuwah, have spoken it.” Ezekiel 5:11-13
This is repeated in Zechariah:
“In the whole land,” declares Eyahuwah, “two-thirds will be struck down and perish; yet one-third will be left in it. This third I will bring into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are My people,’ and they will say, ‘Eyahuwah my Elah (Eloah).’” Zechariah 13:8 – 9
It is the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he will be delivered or saved out of it by both intervention resulting in the destruction of the wicked – those who want to “wipe them off the face of the earth,” and by the resurrection when Eyahuwah [HASHEM], the “Master of Legions or Armies,” will do exactly as he promised:
“You, MY PEOPLE, will know that I am Eyahuwah, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put My Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I, Eyahuwah, have spoken it, and I have done it,” declares Eyahuwah [HaShem, YHWH, Yahweh]. Ezekiel 37:13-14
This also includes setting the people free from the “Shepherds,” who claim to be friends of Eyahuwah, “his colleagues.” The trouble above comes to set the people free, but at a great price. Many will die, others will be scattered and will call upon Eyahuwah to save them. This is the real meaning of the Feast of Trumpets or Shouting. The false shepherds, the Pharisees, will be held accountable for the trouble that will come upon the whole House of Israel.
And the word of Eyahuwah came to me, saying, “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say to them, ‘Thus says Eyahuwah Elahim to the shepherds: Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? You eat the fat, and clothe yourself with the wool. You kill them that are fed, and you do not feed flock. The diseased you have not strengthened, neither have you healed that which was sick, or bound up that which was broken, or brought again that which was driven away, or sought that which was lost. But with force and with cruelty you ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yes, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.’
Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of Eyahuwah. “As I live,” says Eyahuwah Elahim, “surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock.” Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of Eyahuwah: Thus says Eyahuwah Elahim, “Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more. For I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.”
For thus says Eyahuwah Elahim, “Look! I, even I, will both search my sheep and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be. There shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down,” says Eyahuwah Elahim.
“I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick. But I will destroy the fat and the strong. I will feed them with judgment. And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David. He will feed them, and he will be their shepherd. And I, Eyahuwah will be their Elah, and my servant David a prince among them. I, Eyahuwah, have spoken it.
“And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the showers to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am Eyahuwah, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.
“And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid. And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more. Thus shall they know that I, Eyahuwah their Elah am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, says Eyahuwah Elahim. And you my flock, the flock of my pasture, are people, and I am your Elah, says Eyahuwah Elahim” Ezekiel 34
Thus salvation out of great trial and rebuke shall come to the whole House of Israel, and they will begin to live a long and prosperous life in peace and safety. No longer plagued by deception and falsehood. As Jesus/Eyahushuah or Eyahuwah in the flesh promised them, “You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
