The first of the firstfruits of thy land
thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God.
Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
רֵאשִׁ֗ית בִּכּוּרֵי֙ אַדְמָ֣תְךָ֔ תָּבִ֕יא בֵּ֖ית יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֑יךָ לֹא־ תְבַשֵּׁ֥ל גְּדִ֖י בַּחֲלֵ֥ב אִמּֽוֹ׃ פ
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
בִּשְׁנַת שֵׁשׁ־ מֵאוֹת שָׁנָה לְחַיֵּי־ נֹחַ בַּחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי בְּשִׁבְעָֽה־ עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ בַּיּוֹם הַזֶּה נִבְקְעוּ כָּֽל־ מַעְיְנֹת תְּהוֹם רַבָּה וַאֲרֻבֹּת הַשָּׁמַיִם נִפְתָּֽחוּ׃
- 2nd Exodus is about to begin during perfect storm, 17th day of 2nd Hebrew month.
- This 2nd Exodus includes Raptures and a physical exodus for most of the bride.
- There are two groups of 144,000 caught up to Heaven, one during the barley harvest and the other during the wheat harvest. The 1st group is taken from all 12 tribes (except Ephraim and Dan) and is like a heavenly ‘Levitical’ Firstborn order. They are principally involved in preaching the gospel and supernatural warfare to assist their mother (Congregation of Zion) in waking up and escaping the Dragon and the North Country, Babylon America and wherever else they are in the world. They are involved with war in the gates as the Levites were the Gatekeepers. The 2nd group is higher spiritually and more related to priests than just common Levites. They return with Yeshua and are a Heavenly Davidic form of the tribe of Ephraim.
- Flood of evil coming upon the world on the 17th day of the 2nd month, and lasts just over a year and is both the year of the redeemed and judgement of the careless daughters of Zion (Church).
- It occurs during the Revelation seal judgements which have already been opened. The first seal has come in part but will be completed when the Antichrist is revealed and third temple is speedily built during a time of war. This is part of the spiritual flood that Noah’s flood represents. Other 3 horsemen and fifth seal occur with the Antichrist revelation and rebuilding the physical temple that the Antichrist helps establish and then desecrates. The spiritual flood waters of evil cause the birthing of Satan’s Kingdom and Yeshua’s Kingdom at the same time! Two parallel worlds of Satanic Judgement and Heavenly Blessing during the same time of trial.
- This is the time of travail upon Zion (Bride/believers in Yeshua, Matthew 24 etc, First 5 Seals of the Apocalypse). But like the flood, the 2nd Exodus remnant shall be brought through like Noah's Ark.
- The Church / Bride must be tested to see if they have the blessing or the curse, Numbers 5. If suspected of adultery, by her, saviour and groom, she must drink the bitter waters of judgement. She will be blessed if innocent or cursed if guilty of apostasy and worship of Baal. The flood water of judgement, bitter waters, is represented by the heavenly portals opening with the fall of the heavenly host and the demonic fountains of the deep opening. This is the overflowing scourge and Covenant with Death & Hell, Isaiah 28.
- Revelation 12 and Isaiah 66 picture the same event. The dragon can’t catch the woman. And he cant get her sons. But the wicked of the House of Israel and Judah shall be destroyed because, dust shall be the serpent’s meat, Isaiah 65:25. Without the Holy Spirit all man is dust in the wind. Without wind in the dust, we are dust in the wind.
- Yeshua returns at the 6th Seal to meet His elect Bride in the Wilderness and set up his Kingdom on Earth. The Beast system runs in parallel as a judgement upon the nations. There are folk in that evil system that are saved but almost all die as martyrs.
Flock of Slaughter (Curse)
Jeremiah 25:34 Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel.
Zechariah 11:4 Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter;
Zechariah 11:7 And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.
Flock to be Saved (Blessing)
Ezekiel 34:22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
Zechariah 9:16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
What matters is the attitude of our hearts. The King is about to visit his flock and separate out those that are fat and push with their horns. The leaders are judged first. Read Ezekiel 34 and Jeremiah 23 for instance. This is the lost tribes of the House of Israel, headed by Ephraim, headquartered in the North Country, the Daughter of Babylon, North America. His judgement is swift and hard upon His enemies and merciful and kind to His friends. He will save the poor and broken hearted of his flock.
Yeshua gathers His Sheep via His 144,000 Harvest Workers
- Iron in Hebrew is ‘Barzel’, ברזל, which contains the words ‘bar’, בר, or son, and ‘zel’,זל, image. Iron thus can mean ‘image of a son’. That son is the 144,000. Indeed in Isaiah 66 there appears to be two groups. More on this later. See my article titled Manchild also.
At the same time as all this judgement is going on the Lord is commissioning a new group of leaders. The Good Shepherd, our Lord Yeshua, is about to do a new thing. He is about to raise up His Army and his Generals. He is about to send forth His 144,000 Harvest workers into the Harvest. He is about to raise up a new generation of leaders with supernatural empowerment as our nations crumble. The old torn garment can't be patched up because it is worn out and the patch will only make it worse, it has to be replaced. The old wineskin is about to be replaced and the new wine is about to be poured in. There is a storm about to break upon sleepy and proud Ephraim and Judah. Severe punishment is coming in waves. The story of the Flood is a picture of now. Sifting is coming. Much trial and distress but also much glory and power to the poor and broken hearted. There is a commissioning of large number of select humble Torah obedient Disciples, not just 12, but 12 times 12 times 1000. Blessed are they that Watch, for the Lord is coming as a Thief in the Night for the harvest has come. The Lord is going to bring in the lost sheep. He is sick of the majority of the Leaders in His Laodicean Congregations, they are blind guides that love to sleep. He is about to act.
Matthew 9:36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
Matthew 10:5-6 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
Nevertheless the 144,000 will be successful in their ministry and warfare. As far as I can tell God is not initially focused on sending his Harvest workers to the nations where the lost tribes do not reside, at least not initially. But he hasn’t forgotten them either, their time is coming. Once the Bride has left ‘North Country’ for the Wilderness and is safe, then Yeshua will send his harvest workers to rock the Antichrist’s Kingdom of Darkness. Of course the 144,000 no doubt will be helping gentiles also before then but the main initial focus, is assisting the woman to get her shoes on and escaping the North Country called Babylon America. This will be a combination ministry of Preaching and fighting, like Elijah and David combined. Elijah versus the Prophets of Baal and David verses Goliath. Supernatural warfare. Gideon bringing in the sheaves and contending with Baal.
The Ark & the Remnant Bride
This is during the flood of destruction that is coming. The flood began on the 17th day of the 2nd Hebrew month. For 40 days all heaven and hell was let loose. This is symbolic of a demonic and angelic time of judgement. The ark was 15 cubits above the tops of the mountains, 5 months later (Tishrei, 7th Month). The height of the Ark above the mountains is symbolic of the bride’s accent to meet the groom at the top of the mountains. The 15 songs of accent (Psalms 120 to 134) is the prophetic cry of the remnant bride, the remnant of Israel & Judah that follow the Lamb. For an entire year the Ark was upon the waters of the flood. This is all prophetic of the period of judgement and Harvest. The Ark empties when the Lord has the Gospel of the KINGDOM preached to all nations. God shall raise up His Jonah’s, His dove’s (Jonah means Dove). Yeshua shall send them out to the nations like Noah sent the dove from it’s safety in the Ark, once it landed. Jonah who represents the 144,000 Harvest workers shall go to Ninevah, the land of the Assyrian, because there are gentiles that God loves there. Not just Ninevah but wherever the Lord sends them.
Saul replaced by David
Since the time of the Pentecostal outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Acts chapter two, the Spirit of the church has been like Yeshua, with a Joseph/Esau type anointing. But the Church began in the House of Judah, which is more like a Lion, like David. And yet somehow the Church was transformed from a Jewish, Torah based congregation based in Jerusalem and into a Gentile Spirit Led (and later hostile to Torah) congregation within the Roman Empire (Esau). Sometimes in order to reach the lost we have to speak their language. There was a way by which God emphasized the things that Ephraim needed to hear and in a way he could hear. There was an Apostle sent to Ephraim that knew how to speak his spiritual language. The torch of Pentecostal fire was passed over to the ‘Church of the firstborn’, to Ephraim via the Apostle to the gentiles, the Apostle Paul. And Paul was named Saul, and Saul was from the tribe of Benjamin.
Saul was off to Damascus to destroy the church when Yeshua came to Him in a blinding light, Acts 9:4, 22:7, Acts 26:14. Benjamin is Joseph’s brother and was the touchstone of reconciliation between the 12 sons of Israel in the land of Egypt. And so it was through Saul named Paul that the gospel went out to the lost sheep of the house of Israel who were living as gentiles and had forgotten their Israelite heritage. The Apostle Saul/Paul was thus the bridge between the Davidic Jewish early church based in Jerusalem and the Romanised Ephraim and the Remnant of Esau that were also born again. Ephraim has been saved while still misunderstanding that Paul spoke Torah. And the Messianic movement is simply a return to the Torah, if somewhat imperfect. We are moving back to a Torah based understanding of Saul/Paul and are thus moving back to our Davidic roots if you like. This is because it is time to go home. Mission almost accomplished.
So now after almost 2000 years, Yeshua shall regather His lost sheep. But Yeshua is returning, not as a suffering servant, but a triumphal king, not as Joseph but as David.
I have written previously about this change of character in the Messiah’s coming and return. And with that change of character is a change in anointing. The old garment wont do. The old wineskin can’t contain the new wine.
Now we come full circle, back to the Yeshua the Son of David. And so the anointing and emphasis changes from Saul (and by extension Joseph/Esau) to that of David, from a gentile and torahless mentality (even though Paul the Apostle was not actually Torahless, neither did he preach against Torah, but it was perceived that way).
And so the sin of Ephraim and his idols must be now be dealt with.
The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid.
The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children.
Once the children of God are manifest, Romans 8:19, then get the hell out of America and elsewhere! Don't stay where the children are brought forth from, whatever country we are in, especially the North Country called North America. Where do we go? The children of God will direct us!
What God has overlooked these past 2000 years in the church, will not be overlooked anymore. Why? Because a baby is about to be born, a Kingdom is about to come, and when babies are due they just come, they've got to get out. And like a baby, the kingdom will come whether we are ready or not. The Church in it’s Sabbath breaking Torahlessness may have been tolerated before for a season, but now the baby is almost full term and the Bride must make herself ready. Paul preached the truth and now we must see Paul in the light of Torah not in the light of lawless pagan Gentile ignorance (Torahless Joseph/Esau interpretations and anointing). And if we truly follow Torah we see that Moses is a prophet and the entire bible is all Torah and it is also all Prophecy. If we hate prophecy then we hate Yeshua. If we only want the sugar and not the salt then we are good for nothing but to be thrown onto the streets and be trampled by men, Matthew 5:13. I will say it again, to hate the prophetic word is to hate Yeshua! The ‘Testimony of Yeshua is the Spirit of prophecy’, Revelation 19:10. We must love His word, Psalm 119. The Kingdom begins with the Word, for in the beginning was the Word, John 1:1, But it doesn’t come without the Spirit of God that hovered upon the waters, Gen 1:2, there can be no light and power without the oil of the Holy Spirit. We need oil in our lamps. This is more than just a bible study.
144,000 Servants called to work the Harvest
Luke 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
Matthew 13:38-39 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Revelation of John 7:3-4 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
In Matthew 20 we read of labourers being hired by the Householder to work in the Vineyard. In Isaiah 5:7 we are told that the House of Israel is His Vineyard. The labourers that worked just an hour were payed just as much as those who had worked longer in the heat of the day. Who are those labourers that worked in the 11th hour (actually about 5pm or an hour before sundown)?
We will talk about this later towards the end in the section titled ‘Timing of Zion’s Travail’.
Before she Travailed she brought forth her Son?
Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
בְּטֶרֶם תָּחִיל יָלָדָה בְּטֶרֶם יָבוֹא חֵבֶל לָהּ וְהִמְלִיטָה זָכָֽר׃
Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
מִֽי־ שָׁמַע כָּזֹאת מִי רָאָה כָּאֵלֶּה הֲיוּחַל אֶרֶץ בְּיוֹם אֶחָד אִם־ יִוָּלֵֽד גּוֹי פַּעַם אֶחָת כִּֽי־ חָלָה גַּם־ יָלְדָה צִיּוֹן אֶת־ בָּנֶֽיהָ׃
Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.
הַאֲנִי אַשְׁבִּיר וְלֹא אוֹלִיד יֹאמַר יְהוָה אִם־ אֲנִי הַמּוֹלִיד וְעָצַרְתִּי אָמַר אֱלֹהָֽיִךְ׃
Before I explain from the Torah what is going on (it is so simple once you see it!), I should state that in Hebrew there is the possibility that these children or sons could also include daughters also because the plural can include the feminine. A group of sons and daughters is called ‘sons', 'benim’, a group of children is called 'yalidim', and can include females, even though the plural is masculine, it’s just a feature of the language. I am not saying they have females in them, I am just saying that it is possible. We shall see. However to counter this I will say that the second group of 144,000 mentioned in Revelation 14 are called virgins, that have not defiled themselves with women. So this would support that they are all men. And the first child is called a male. So the group in Revelation 7 are at least masculine in some respect.
What does Torah tell us about the 144,000?
Revelation of John 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
The first of the firstfruits of thy land
thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God.
Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
רֵאשִׁ֗ית בִּכּוּרֵי֙ אַדְמָ֣תְךָ֔ תָּבִ֕יא בֵּ֖ית יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֑יךָ לֹא־ תְבַשֵּׁ֥ל גְּדִ֖י בַּחֲלֵ֥ב אִמּֽוֹ׃
They are brought to the house of the Lord? Where is that? Zion. Where is Zion, Jerusalem. But it is the heavenly Jerusalem where the Lord’s house is. Yes there shall be one built on the earth shortly during the travail of the woman, but the son is taken before the travail, so it must be presented before the Lord in the Heavenly Mt Zion. Then the first 144,000 of the Barley harvest return to bring in the sheaves and assist the woman that gave birth to them.
But what does seething a kid in his mothers milk mean? Very simple. The first time a 'kid of the goats', ‘Gaddey’, גְּדָיֵי, is mentioned is in Genesis 27:8 when Jacob wants to get the blessing from Esau. The fact that there are two 'kids of the goats' that are used by Jacob’s mother represents the two wave sheaves of Barley and wheat. Two sets of 144,000. And you could also argue the two houses of Israel, but the 'kid of the goats', ‘Gaddey’, גְּדָיֵי, is very specifically tied to the harvest cycle of wheat and barley.
But what does seething in her mothers milk mean? Why is this mentioned just after talking about the firstfruits? The word to seeth, bashal, בשל, also means to mature or ripen! It is used in Joseph’s interpretation of the butlers dream of ripened grapes, Genesis 40:10. So the kid of the goats is not to be ripened in its mothers milk, its not to be breast fed, it is to be taken from the breast! Snatched away! The 144,000 as snatched away from the mother. They are taken from her and matured elsewhere on the sincere milk of the Word! They are not matured on Church teaching, they are separated from their mother (Zion/Church) as soon as they are born. They understand the Torah. They shall return to teach her, because that is the role of the ‘servant’ of the Lord. The Servant is Yeshua but it is also the 144,000 firstfruits of Zion under Him. They come back to both teach and save their mother (Zion).
They are taken from her and matured elsewhere on the sincere milk of the Word!
The seething of the kid of the goat is also mentioned in Exodus 23:19 and Deuteronomy 14:21. It’s all deeply prophetic and links to the prophets and gospels and new testament scriptures in amazing ways but I just don’t have time to unpack it all.
I am simply trying to alert you to the crux of what is going on. You will find related things if you look up barley and wheat harvests, see Gideon who contends with Baal, it’s all a picture of the kid of the goats, the seed of the woman in Genesis 3. Yes Yeshua is that seed, but it is also his brethren, the 144,000 that come from the woman, and return to help their mother Gomer/Zion.
Isaiah 8:18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
Two Groups of 144,000?
The baby in Revelation 12 not only represents the coming of the Kingdom of God but it also represents two kids of the goats, both barley and wheat harvest groups of the 144,000 as stated earlier. The Kingdom of God comes with power and Holy Ghost unction, 1 Thess 1:5, so too do Zion’s sons, the 144,000. Now the anointing shall be Davidic, for both groups of 144,000. Zion is called the ‘city of David’, 2 Samuel 5:7.
The ‘children of Zion’ mentioned in scripture ultimately refer to all the 144,000 in the heavenly mt Zion, the New Jerusalem.
Psalms 149:2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Joel 2:23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
If we are for example, Firstfruits of Barley or Wheat or later crops. If we are the woman in Revelation 12, we shall be supernaturally assisted by angels and the 144,000 (her children) in a physical 2nd exodus. There also appears to be a raptured group that is not martyred in Revelation 12 that have their garments washed in the blood of the Lamb.
The first group in Revelation 7 are Earthy and related to the House of Bread and the Barley Harvest, related to WAR, both Spiritual and Physical. Supernatural and Natural. WAR in the Gates. Their heads are lifted up before the travail of the woman, before the Flood of evil and bitter waters come. So in this sense the Woman, Zion, is carrying twins. Twin warriors.
The second group belongs more to David in the sense of Worship, they are specifically described as playing Harps (like David and the sons of Korah). They follow the Lamb of God wherever He goes. The second group of 144,000 is Ephraimite in nature. Ephraim is not listed in the first Group of 144,000 in Revelation 7. The Ephraimite Wheat harvest 144,000 are thus a higher ranked supernatural Firstfruits order of angelic-human warrior knights.
The 144,000 are the wavesheaf of the firstfruits of the harvest of souls of Zion.
Leviticus 23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.
Leviticus 23:15-17 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD. Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the firstfruits unto the LORD.
Now there is another clue that there are two distinct groups of 144,000. Someone named Timothy Foster alerted me to this on a YouTube video of his, we all are picking up details here and there. In 1 Chronicles 27 we read that David had 12 groups of 24,000 soldiers. This is 288,000 which is twice 144,000. However in Heaven we have the same number as David, split into two, like the Shewbread was split into two rows on the table of Shewbread, Leviticus 24:6.
2 x 144,000 - Two kids of the goats, Barley & Wheat.
So here is a quick summary of the 2 groups of 144,000.
1st kid of the goats, Barley Harvest (Passover / Pesach) - SERVANTS
Rev 7 144,000 First fruits of the Barley Harvest, Sealed with the name of יהוה to work the Harvest. They are fishers of men. They are like 144,000 Moses’s shining like the Sun with fire in their eyes. These are like Levitcal door keepers in the Heavenly mt Zion, but are taken from the 12 tribes. They bring in the Sheaves & the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel. They are like David the Warrior. They are more earthly that the 2nd group of 144,000. They are lower in rank.
2nd Kid of the goats, Wheat Harvest (Pentecost / Shavuot) - SONS
Rev 14 144,000 First fruits of the Wheat Harvest. Virgins, related to Ephraim & the Levitical singers. They are also like David the worshipper and like David they have harps. A Heavenly Davidic Group. They are the reward of the womb of Rachel who lost her children. They are both childlike, baby faced cherubs & warrior kings, mighty men. The Son of David’s mightiest mighty men.
The second 144,000 is higher ranked than the first. The first fruits may not necessarily be higher than those that follow later. Perhaps something is gained by suffering, Although the two groups of the 144,000 are high ranked. It could be that the bride is even higher. The 144,000 are represented by the table of Shewbread. It was plated in Gold. However the Menorah represents the Zion bride and it is made of solid gold, solid faith. The bible says that the first will be last and the last shall be first. Just because some are raised in glory first, doesn’t mean that they are the highest. Like Joseph in the pit, those that endure more suffering obtain a better resurrection, Hebrews 11:35, Philippians 3:10. “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him:”, 2 Timothy 2:12.
Timing of Zion’s Travail
Numbers 5:15 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
Hosea 3:2 So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley:
I believe that this is coming now! The flood lasted just over a year, and I believe it is the last year of the first half of the Tribulation and it can also be a time of blessing amidst the storm. Zion is not appointed to wrath, I Thessalonians 5:9, but we do go through tribulation, at least some of it, Yeshua promised us this in this world, John 16:33. If we have had tribulation before ‘The Tribulation’, if our garments are already washed ‘white in the blood of the lamb’, Revelation 7:14, we may be spared much of the awfulness of what is coming and even be blessed. Indeed we could be part of a company of believers that are firstfruits before the storm comes and the waters break. It may not just be the 144,000 in the Heavenly Mt Zion. From Revelation 7:14 there will be martyrs but there could also be raptured believers that don’t need the bitter waters. In Jeremiah we read of some being taken, not many, but a tiny portion, and brought to Zion. Initially I thought these few could be only part of the 2nd exodus, but on further deliberation it is too small a number to be the 2nd exodus, it must be a first fruits rapture of a tiny remnant.
Jeremiah 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
(The Antichrist’s Kingdom will be centred in the land of Shinar in a rebuilt Babylon in Iraq when wickedness returns to Shinar to have a house built for her, Zechariah 5. This is after the curse goes into all the earth for everyone that swears falsely by the name of the Lord or that steals. This could only be the 4 horseman and the 5th seal martyrs, the bitter waters of the curse that the woman suspected of adultery in Numbers 5 has to drink.)
The woman, Zion (Church of the firstborn), is rescued mid way through the 7 year Tribulation period, but does not experience the wrath of God that is poured out from the 6th seal onwards. The woman is kept safe in the wilderness for the last 3.5 years. How much tribulation we go through is dependent on our obedience and what the good Lord wants to make of us. Joseph went through much heartache and lonely exile but he was later elevated to a high position. We have just had it too good for too long in our rich nations. But if we have been faithful we will have had much tribulation already. We are then in a better position to receive mercy. We are then able to discern the times and have much more of the fear of God. We are not so easily entertained by the sweet candy water offered in the churches and even messianic fellowships. The road to Zion is a lonely one for now.
But let’s get back to the sequence and timing of things. The bible states that during the first exodus the horse and the rider were thrown into the sea. I believe the 4 Horsemen in Revelation are a repetition of this in the 2nd exodus. The 1st horseman wearing the crown or ‘Corona’ in Latin, has already bolted with the vaccine arrows shot from his bow (needle). But he returns with the other 3 horsemen all at once as the Antichrist when the deluge breaks, thus the man of sin is revealed. So we have had 2 years of vaccine mini tribulation but we have a year of the 4 horsemen all mixed up together so people don’t know what is going on, but the wise shall understand, Daniel 12:10. So part of the bitter waters is War, Famine, Pestilence, Economic collapse, Murder, Persecution, Prison camps (mentioned in Isaiah 42:7, 49:9). I also believe that this is when the Nephilim come and we experience the Zombie apocalypse. The Zombies are caused by the vaccine I believe. The seeds of doom have been sown. The Reaper will come back to activate what has been sown, they shall do their evil and then they shall be gathered into bundles to be burned, Matthew 13. This is all part of the curse upon the Crown of Pride of the Drunkards of Ephraim. The Rider on the white horse represents rebellious Ephraim. The rider on the white horse with the crown and the bow also represent the good seed of Ephraim also! Of course God has his seed too. So of course God is going to be doing his thing to save his Remnant bride, Zion. This is where the first 144,000 come in. They are gathering the sheep for our exit out of Babylon America and Australia and wherever else his people are. If the lost tribes are obedient then there is a blessing.
We are at that 11th hour before the sun sets, before darkness covers the earth and gross darkness covers the people, Isaiah 60:2.
Isaiah 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Isaiah 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
Isaiah 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
Isaiah 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
- Again my special thanks to Timothy Foster for distilling the following truth on his YouTube videos. I have some differences of opinion as to when the year of the redeemed occurs, he thinks it is before the seals are opened, I believe it occurs during the first 5 seals, and that they all come together during a 12 month period that the flood describes. I think it is clearly in the last 12 months of the first 3.5 years before the woman goes into the wilderness for the second 3.5 years.
The flood began a couple of days after what is called Second Passover. In the torah if someone is on a ‘long journey’ or touches a dead body and are unclean so that they cannot keep the Passover, then there is provision for a Second Passover. This was actually used during a time of reconciliation of a remnant of Judah and Ephraim in the time of Hezekiah, where the temple was rededicated, 2 Chronicles 30. Could this be the time when Judah and Ephraim make a covenant in the North Country, North America, Jeremiah 3:18? Could this be during the time of this spiritual flood? I believe so.
The flood of Noah began on the 17th day of the 2nd month and lasted for 40 days. Pentecost is right about the middle of this 40 day period. The Ark was upon the water for 340 days until the same day a year later, the 17th day of the 2nd month. Then 10 days later Noah and family left the Ark. This is the 27th day of the 2nd month. Meanwhile the former world was totally destroyed. This is a parable for the bride (Church of Zion), which is the Ark, the flood destroys the wicked and saves Noah’s Household, these are the ‘waters of Noah’. The Ark is ZION! While the flood comes to our world for 1 year it becomes very dark spiritually and physically. While this spiritual flood is going on the 2nd Exodus is occurring. The 144,000 are doing their thing.
Does the provision for the 2nd Passover for someone on a ‘long journey’ relate to the 2nd coming of our Lord Yeshua who was also on a long journey also? Yeshua returns from his long journey to take this world by force, Mark 13:34. (My special thanks to watchman Timothy Foster from making this clear to me). Now there is an adulterous woman in Proverbs 7:19 who’s husband is on a ‘long journey’. Could the 2nd Passover give us the timing of the return of the husband, is that husband Yeshua?. While Yeshua is away on his long journey the wife is up to no good. The Catholic church calls itself the spouse of Christ, but I believe the protestant daughters are also part of it. The Lord needs to test hearts to see if they are truly His, this is the test in Numbers 5.
So there is a testing period for adultery. There are those that are innocent and those that are guilty. The two must be separated like wheat and tares. So the year of the redeemed can also end with the day of the vengeance of our God as Isaiah 63:4 alludes to. I believe that the year of the redeemed occurs during the last year of the first half of the tribulation. We are not appointed unto wrath, but we all go through tribulation. The wheat is shaken and sifted and then brought into the barn, the Father’s House, the Heavenly Zion. The Tares are bundled to be burnt at His return by the Angels.
Both Yeshua and Ephraim have been on a journey to a far country. Yeshua has gone up to heaven and Ephraim has gone far away from God spiritually and has long since left the promised land for Assyrian exile and then migrating into Europe then coming to America and Australia etc. So at the end of the age the two long journeys come together.
Yeshua comes back after Ephraim has also been on a long journey to a far country (America, Babylon and wherever else he is scattered), he is the prodigal son, and he has spent all his Father’s inheritance on whores. This is spiritual fornication, this is adultery. So this flood comes to both punish the majority of Ephraim and rescue the remnant.
Please note, that the most prodigal of Ephraim is the furthest away from Zion physically as well as spiritually. Australia and New Zealand are really at the ends of the earth, the furthest from the earthly Zion in the land of Israel. The most rebellious of Ephraim are there. But the most precious Jewels in the crown of Yeshua may also be there. Not many, but precious. In 1917 it was the Australian Light Horsemen and ANZAC troops that booted the Turks out of Beersheba and the British troops pushed them out of Jerusalem. Many had bibles under their belts. Ephraim and Esau worked together to get the job done. Precious in His Sight is the death of His Saint’s. And precious is their rebirth and repentance. The wheat shall fall to the earth in it’s time, but in it’s dying, many sons shall come to glory. I feel tears welling up inside me just thinking about their sacrifice and I am not one for emotion. God bless Joseph.
The spiritual waters of Noah are about to come. Extreme trial and extreme judgement upon Ephraim and Judah. This is the latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit and later destruction of Babylon America, the North Country. We shall see ‘palmtrees of smoke’, Joel 2:30 that we didn’t see in Acts 2. This is the volcanoes and earthquakes and nuclear explosions. Yeshua also comes with pillars of smoke for his beloved. So thankfully Zion within Babylon America (and elsewhere) shall be saved and brought out. The period of the final Harvest and storm tossed regathering of Zion is this 1 year period that is shortly to begin on the 17th day of the 2nd month and ends a year later.
Isaiah 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
• Mystery of the kid of the goats not to be boiled in the Milk of his Mother solved. Mother is Zion / Church of the Firstborn, all 12 tribes of believing Israel & Judah. Kid of the Goats are the Firstfruits of the Resurrection.
◦ Like Yeshua they are to rule with Rod of Iron.
◦ They are arrows in the quiver of Yeshua. They shall be shot out at the enemy.
◦ They are related to the 12 loaves of Shewbread (in 2 rows)
◦ They are related to King David spiritually.
◦ They have a Davidic Warrior Anointing, but they are also Shepherds of the Flock.
◦ They are the beginning of the Kingdom of God coming down to Earth.
◦ They are the beginning of the answer to the prayer,
“Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.”
They have a message and they are like sealed letters.)
◦ The 144,000 are Leaders / Generals of the 2nd Exodus from the North Country (Babylon America)
◦ both groups of 144,000 are Davidic, but the first is more like teacher warriors while the second is more like priest kings. Both Warriors.
◦ the first 144,000 are servants, Harvest Workers, who go to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. They are like Levites that teach the people.
◦ the second 144,000 are higher, more focused on the Lamb, like a Priesthood
and worshipful like David and the sons of Korah.
The sons of Zion, the 144,000 assist their Mother that begat them, Zion in all her persecution, turmoil in the bitter waters that lead to her flight to the wilderness and safety.
There is so so so much more to share on this topic, so many examples in scripture concerning the heavenly Zion, Zions sons, types and shadows hidden in plain sight in the Word. But time does not permit. The word is Living and it is amazing. There is so so so much encoded in the new testament scriptures also. It blows me away. But that’s all from me for now folks.
In Yeshua’s name, Shalom, Love and Blessings to the Israel of God.
