QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS------------E.R.M.
QUESTION:----How can you trace the heritage of a race and then come up with the early life of Jesus the Christ?
ANSWER:----Easy. Go to your favorite university and many libraries and read, read, read. Go back into the old records and books. There are many places of antiquity which show the path of the Adamic or Aryan race in their journey over this planet since they came into earth in physical bodies as Adam and Eve. Then trace the lineage of Jesus the Christ and how he says that HE came the same way you did---born of a woman to identity with his people, his race. Go to the bible for the message of the Woman of Revelation 12 and digest that from a spiritual understanding, and then go to Genesis 2, and see who the people of this WOMAN (Israel) really are. There are also many publications on this subject for a person is interested in reading, and they are easy to find. The reason why this subject is not well known is that over the years the enemy has been busy turning the thinking of our people from their heritage and their background.
In ancient times and thus thru the old book this Aryan race could be traced from the time they left the garden of Eden, went down into Northern India from the Tarim Basin, and then started their westward movement from there where they had built a civilization.
Here at the end of this Century the enemy is still trying to cloud this issue. Even to try to remove from America the worship as, yes, even the name of Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior. Look here in October of this year of 1997. You have heard the hue and cry as the 'Promise Keepers’ came to Washington, D.C.
Mrs. Ireland's thinly veiled protest rested on the fact that their Christian Faith is based on Jesus the Christ whom we say is YAHWEH in the flesh. She stressed that there are other people just as she is that worship god who is not Jesus Christ. She does not want the "Promise Keepers' who are mostly white males to make this a part of their political feelings, as they call for America to reconsider her lost values. Mrs. Ireland remember is head of the women's group called NOW, which we call the women's lib organization. She is married to a man, as she tell you, but she also does not tell you that she lives in another city from him, with a woman friend. We still say that her biggest objection to the 'Promise Keepers’ is that they pray and worship Jesus Christ and are trying to rebuild America's Christian Faith which made this country great.
And now as to the early life of Jesus Christ before he came for his ministry to the old land of Palestine, to save HIS People from their sins. You are all aware of the story of how Mary and Joseph came to Bethlehem to pay the taxes, since both owned land around there. Mary owned the threshing field and held them in trust for her eldest son as was the custom. But at that time then we see the story of Mary and Joseph coming to Bethlehem, and Mary heavy with child and seated on a little donkey which Joseph was leading. When they arrived then there was no room in the Inn.---Jerusalem was having a celebration--a world celebration.---But stop and consider this:---Joseph, who was appointed as Mary's protector, was a wealthy man. he was from the king line which had once been in power in Jerusalem of Judea. And those people had horses in those days, even back in the days of Solomon, he had stables of beautiful horses, and archaeology has confirmed this fact. If horses, do you think they did not have carriages? Remember also that Mary had not so long before that been to visit her cousin Elizabeth in the city of Bethlehem where Elizabeth was the wife of the priest of the Temple and where her child John the Baptist has been born six months before. Surely there would have been room in Elizabeth's home during the birth of Mary's child? Remember also that Joseph of Arimathea, the brother of Mary's mother's husband also had a great home just outside the city of Jerusalem on the North East, and then another a few miles north of Jerusalem at Arimathea.
Now; this LAMB of God had been proclaimed as the LAMB slain before the foundation of the world. So where would you expect a LAMB to be born? Why not in a stable? Such a stable was to be found just on the outskirts of Bethlehem, the facility or place where the animals were raised for sacrifice in the Temple of Jerusalem. Thus we tell you that the old records tell us that Mary and Joseph went to the Stable where Mary's child was born. This child Mary was told would be called YAHSHUA--Jesus Christ in our day, and in the writings of Isaiah the Prince of Peace.
After arriving at the stable, then making Mary comfortable then Joseph hurried off looking for a midwife. And sure enough one was coming to the stable and they hurried back. But when they arrived for a moment, they could not see because of the bright light in the stable. Then as the light faded they saw the young girl sitting there holding a tiny babe in her arms.
Now; many date the birth of this child as being 4 B.C. or even 9 B.C. (before Christ). How do you date a period of thinking as before Christ for his birth? I think the misunderstanding is to their understanding as to the dates of the reign of Herod I and Herod the II. But in spite of this disagreement it still is a historical fact that HE was born in earth into a physical body just like you and me. Born of a woman, (Revelation 12---the Israel, or race of the scripture). After the birth this night the shepherds came to the stable to worship the child, and then the next morning Joseph moved Mary and the child to the home of Elizabeth at the Temple in Bethlehem. Here is where the wisemen found the child and his mother, and here they delivered their gifts, and also talked to Joseph warning of Herod on the throne of Jerusalem. And they worry about the safety of the Child. They were sure that Herod was not a Hebrew and they worried about this. Next Mary and the child were taken to the home of Joseph of Arimathea for safe keeping until all prophecy could be fulfilled.
On the day for the circumcision of the child then Mary and her child were taken to the Temple where the old priest Simeon by name still resided and he had so wished to see the Christ Child before his death. After Mary's time for cleansing was over then they would go into Egypt for safe keeping as the Wisemen had recommended.
Why Egypt?-----There the Aryans or Hebrews still held the Priesthood in the city of On where it had been since established there by Enoch and Job. And at the temple under the Sphinx, they also controlled as they did the great pyramid which the Aryan's had also built as a memorial for their God. Here we find YAHWEH God as YAHSHUA IDENTIFYING WITH HIS PEOPLE, leaving you one more clue as to your identity also.
In earlier times we used to find pictures on Christmas cards of Mary and the child between the paws of the sphinx. Once in a while you can still find that today.
Now; the story in Protevangelian is quite a story. But go into the old books and then think a bit, and perhaps these stories were allowed to hide the facts from certain people. Remember Joseph of Arimathea being a rich man and a trader, with many ships maintained a fleet of ships in the harbor in Palestine. The scripture says (Matt. 2:13-14 ) that after being warned in a dream that Joseph took the young child and his mother, and went by night into Egypt. Do you think they went that long way in the heat, with the little donkey and on foot when they were fleeing from that area where Herod would soon order the killing of the babes of Bethlehem? In the footnotes of Protevangelian, we are told that a story similar to this was found in the Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmud.
Now; the scripture does not tell us how long Mary and Joseph and the child remained in Egypt. ---Why Egypt? Where do you think a more safe place could be found for the child than there with the Race and the monuments built by the Race to commemorate their God ---YAHWEH ---there where he as a young child could see these monuments built in his name? Thus YAHWEH, AS YAHSHUA, --when a young child visited the place where these great monuments were built, perhaps as a symbol to keep the knowledge alive among his people.
The knowledged brought by Enoch and Job to this place in Egypt went back to the ancient Star bible. And here in 1997 we have been pointing out to you as Hale-Bopp moved thru the heavens, this wondrous story of a people, on a mission for their heavenly father.
Finally an angel appeared unto Joseph in a dream saying take the young child and his mother and go into the land of Israel, for they have all died which sought the young child's life. (Matt. 2:19-20). As they came back into the land of Israel then Joseph learned that Arcelaius ruled in place of his father Herod II and he turned aside into Galilee to the city of Nazareth.
In the book of St. Luke's writings, we are told that the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, and the Grace of God was upon him. Then at 12 years of age his earthy parents went with a group to Jerusalem for the Passover, and HE accompanied them. As they started for home no doubt thinking that he was in the group, they reached the city of Arimathea, and they looked for Jesus but could not find HIM so they hurried back to Jerusalem and they found HIM in the Temple, both hearing and asking questions of learned men. And those who heard HIM were astonished at HIS understanding. When his earthy mother rebuked him for worrying them, he replied:---"How is it that ye sought me? Know ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?" Then HE went home with them, but they understood not what HE had said. Mary however pondered these sayings in her heart. For surely she know altho not quite understanding that something was to take place.
As to these missing 18 years of HIS life you turn to the old books to trace his steps. For HE did not as some would have you think spend all those years in the carpenter shop and never ventured more than 200 miles from that spot as some Christmas cards would have you believe.
Now; Luke 4:16-22 ----"And HE came to Nazareth where it was believed that he had been brought up, and the eyes of all of them that were in the synagogues (the house of the scribes) were fastened upon him. And they said: "Is this not Joseph's son?" Thus this implies that his childhood had been spent in Nazareth. But the impression was that he had not been there for some time. Remember in those days that a boy of 12 years was considered as an adult.
Another incident pointing this out is when YAHSHUA came to the Jordan river where John the Baptist was preaching and baptizing people. But this John, his earthly cousin did not recognize HIM. If both men had been in this same place throughout this 18 years surely HE and Elizabeth's son would have seen each other often.
Having established this then it would not be so surprising to find that Jesus had traveled on the ships of Joseph of Arimathea to other places in the known world of that day. We find that he visited far away places like India and also along the China coast where he went inland at different places to his people who welcomed him as the Master.
Then of course we think of Glastonbury in England where his uncle Joseph of Arimathea owned the Tin mines. Many are the poems that tell this ancient story:---
"Have you walked along the Mendips,
Where His weary feet have gone.
When He climbed the Tor and looked out,
O'er the isle of Avalon?
“Have you seen the Holy Thorn tree,
Standing in the evening sun,
Full of blooms and scented perfume,
On the Isle of Avalon?”
"And the led mines on the hill tops
I have often gazed upon,
Where HE walked---a lonely figure
On the Isle of Avalon?
Up the Chedder Gorge to Priddy,
In the rain and snow and sun,
Just to give his simple message,
To the Isle of Avalon.
Near the Chinese Well His hut stood,
When the days work was done,
HE would watch the golden sunset,
Or the Isle of Avalon.
You may walk there in his footsteps,
And your eye will rest upon,
Glastonbury's sacred mountains,
On the Isle of Avalon.
If one wonders why this selection of Glastonbury as the place for a retreat for Jesus, then remember that this was where Mary HIS earthly mother was to be taken for safety and to live out her physical life. Here on the Isle of Avalon the Romans were never allowed to penetrate whenever they tried to invade England. In 55 B.C., Julius Caesar, in a half-hearten attempt invaded Britain but never progressed into Western Britain in earnest. And by 47 A.D., they did reach Somerset, but were stopped short of Glastonbury. For that was the center of the Druidic faith in Britain. It was here that the Druids taught three duties for every Adamic man which were:---
l. Worship YAHWEH GOD.
2. Be just to all men,
3. Die for your country.
Their emblem or symbol was three golden rays of light coming from the Godhead.
What better place for the coming of YAHSHUA? For this was the land that had accepted HIS truth which HE was to proclaim soon in his ministry.
Druidism prepared the way for Christianity and nourished it thru the early stages of stress, giving it the vigor to endure thru this adversity.
Thus tradition has established that YAHSHUA-JESUS as a young man came to the Isle of Avalon, in Britain, --to Glastonbury. And from there he moved north to teach in the great universities that were already established there. For here the young men of the Western world of that time came to be educated.
Tradition tells us that at Glastonbury, YAHSHUA and his earthly uncle built a little wattle home for his earthly mother, for by foreknowledge he knew she would need a place of safety soon after his ministry in Palestine was over.
Some traditions tells us that Mary even came once with Joseph of Arimathea and her son to help prepare the little home which she would be brought to later. Thus, Mary and her God-man son did come to Glastonbury. And then Mary returned to Nazareth with Joseph of Arimathea and Jesus then went to teach in the Universities
Thus, it was later written:-----
"And did those feet in ancient times,
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was New Jerusalem builded there
Among those Dark and Satanic Hills?
(William Blake, 1757-1827)
It is thus clear that this author meant to convey his belief, even at this later date that Jesus the Christ did come to England before he began his Ministry in the old holy land. In his work as a London engraver he did his engraving of Joseph of Arimathea showing that as an engraver and also a poet he was aware that Christ did visit England’s green and pleasant land. And that this impressed him deeply. Some say that he also visited America. I have never found any definite facts of that, but of course it could have happened, for some of his people were also by that time in the Western world. Here at the end of this age at our time in physical life we do not totally understand but once more we turn to the stories of our past. We may not have as yet unraveled all of the mystery surrounding our heritage. But traditions like this surrounding Glastonbury ---like truth---never die. Glastonbury was and is the Holiest earth in England and the spirit of its traditions is still vibrant and alive, close knit with a living Christ.
Go to England today and talk to the people, especially the young, and the people are not interested in their traditions because of the absence and clear, reliable documentary that the whole of Britains history for the first 500 years of the Christian age, is almost entirely blank as regards known written records. As we have see this is not the case if you turn to Traditions for certain authorities have testified in times past, to the truth of that tradition.
QUESTION:---You do not understand Joanna Southcott’s sickness at the end of her life described as a pregnancy?
ANSWER:---To me much of the writing of Joanna Southcott was rather veiled as tho not to be understood by everyone easily. For if the enemy understood easily they would of course move to block and destroy before the children of the kingdom would grasp the message. For the time of fulfillment was still a long way off. Her message thus starts with the Woman of Revelation 12. then check Genesis 2, for who this woman represents. Then pick up the happening of the last days from Revelation 19----thru chapters 20-22. As Joanna's work is done here in the physically then her friends who are now writing for her and describing what she is telling them, then describe that like a pregnancy she is bringing forth something. This is her spirit. And now, as the Woman of Revelation 12---The Israel of the Bible --she is made ready for the marriage supper of the Lamb. This telling you that the wife has made herself ready means that she--This Israel of God, the administration of the Kingdom is now obedient and ready for the rest of the book of Revelation to be fulfilled.
Thus in her veiled way then Joanna was confirming that she possessed the spirit of this race which could be remarried to their God as in olden times. Thus she is pictured as giving birth to this spirit, and the process she is saying that this woman of Revelation will also have to struggle to bring forth, the proper setting for the end of the age. And only by this struggle, which is likened to child birth, that it goes on for a certain length of time and then there is no stopping it at the proper time the spirit comes forth and leaves that physical tabernacle which you are now finished with. Thus now we see that we of the race have another comforter ---this spirit which we possess.
QUESTION:----The Promise Keepers??????
Answer:---Whee! Don't know whether I should tackle that subject or not---but here goes.
The good part was that at least the name of Jesus Christ was still declared as LORD and Savior. The enemy you know has been trying to even take the name out of our nation. I thought this was mostly a gathering of white males to make a stand for Christianity and our values for this our land which have been mostly discarded. What I saw when TV took over was of course almost the voice and pictures of the World Order.
Now; further back from the platform where the TV camera was recording events, were thousands of men and boys and when called upon they were on their knees to their God. Surely that will have some good in it altho their religion in this case is still that of the fundamental sort of Charismatic type.
Now; we know that every knee will bow and. Every tongue proclaim that YAHSHUA --Jesus was and is YAHWEH himself. That was good and this was mentioned. And when He comes he will divide the Sheep of his pasture from the goats. And when we progress to that day when Satan is confined, these other people will also not protest HIS WAY OF DOING THINGS. The promise of the restitution of all things is real, but so also is EVERYTHING IN ITS CORRECT ORDER. There is no simplicity such as this idea that everyone is going to heaven, and that is all there is to look forward to.
One of the good things I thought about this great meeting of men on the Mall in Washington, D.C. was the way it worried the women's Lib. Mrs. Ireland has been so disturbed by it, so that was good. These men may not understand the word Gentile of scripture but if it causes some of them to look at their lives and see where they are headed, and what they have been putting their families thru then it will have all been worthwhile, but to me they are still giving away their heritage.
We are told in Holy scriptures (Micah 4:10) ‘that I shall take you to Great Babylon and then you will be delivered. There the LORD shall redeem you from the hand of your enemy.’ Great Babylon is described as being total confusion.
So what did you think that you heard and saw from this rally in Washington, D.C. by the Promise Keepers? I hope we will see some broken homes fixed. But I also think that going on TV and turning the coverage over to the World Order, that the 'Promise Keepers' lost some of their message which was so good, and joined the world order. They seemed to lose their message of being better, fathers, husbands and family providers, which is their earthly message. Then look for the Spiritual message of Revelation 19 to see how this story is supposed to end. The message proclaimed by the TV seemed to be join with the other races, apologize to the Black race for you being white, and then remember there is a separation of church and state. In the scripture this is just opposite.
The ‘Promise Keepers’ are now planning a meeting in every state capital in the year 2000 and then going world wide. Let us wait and see what the Almighty has in mind.
I read that there is a kingdom to be set up, a kingdom administration to be set in place, and many events to occur here in earth before that movement into the heavens that everyone is looking for, where you take everyone with you. As people declare they believe in Jesus Christ they are just getting ready for total obedience as to what he has in store. That is what we are watching for.
"Arise and thresh O daughter of Zion"--this being the government---Zion was the place of the government of ancient Israel. Jerusalem was the place of worship. There was no separation of the two to be used in the government. So arise and thresh you daughter of Zion. For many nations are gathered against you saying let her be deviled, and let our eye look upon her. But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand his counsel, for HE will gather them 'As the sheathes into the floor. (Read the 13 verse of Micah 4). Did it ever dawn on you that the no. 13 has a message for you?
Question:---Could the woman (Israel) of revelation 12 be the woman on the throne of David here in the last days, then there could be a man on the throne in England?
Answer:--We have been talking of this since the death of Diana the Princess and since Mildred asked where do you find in scripture that it says that there will be a woman on the throne when all prophecy is fulfilled? Thus in trying to answer JoAnn's question, we will also answer Mildred’s question.
Since the study of the writings of Joanna Southcott as she says that for the interpretation of scripture for the last days then you start with Revelation 12. We thus know the woman of Revelation 12 as the Israel of God, or his kingdom people then this is in symbolism. And as you come to that conclusion then you would have to narrow that idea down and in reality since you know that the throne of David is in England, and that there would always he someone on that throne until HE comes whose right it is, then in reality the queen of England now holds that throne in trust. She when crowned 40 years ago was crowned as the Queen of Israel. So where do we find in scripture this story that there will be a woman on the throne at this time?
After going thru the concordance and not finding those exact words then we knew that Dr. Swift had told us this interpretation during his ministry so we turned to the library of his sermons and began to search. In the highlights of those Sermons we ran across the Swift sermon of 5-30-1965--"The Signs of the Sun, moon, and stars.” And there Dr. Swift suggests the writings of the minor prophet Micah. So we turned to the Companion Bible and the prophet Micah and we find that Micah says that this is the word of the LORD, so we are to receive it as the WORD of the LORD and as being only from Micah's pen.
This minor prophet Micah was from the land and city between the Judah territory and Philistia. During the captivity of Judah by the Edomites this city was used as the Capital of Idumea. This was in the time of Ahab thus toward the last of the time when Judea had a king. Thus Micah then talks about what is to happen in time. That the LORD God will come forth out of the heavens and will come down and will tread the high places of the earth. "And the mountains shall be molten under Him and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, as the waters pour down a steep place.” The reason for this is the transgression of Jacob, the sins of the house of Israel which was the idolatry of Samaria as the house of Israel parted from the House of Judah. And then behold the Jerusalem of the House of Judah became the high places of that land. And he tells of some unnamed foe who has come to the house of Judah which brings on her judgment.
Verse 16, tells of the going into captivity of the house of Judah. But also WOE to those who have caused Israel to sin. But you see--Judah was also to go into captivity and then later into migration for old Jerusalem was not the rest for the Children of God. A part of the house of Judah came back from the 70-year captivity in Babylon, to try to rebuild and thus be in place for the birth of Messiah, and on till the Resurrection had occurred. But back with Israel at that time came also many of the enemy for the house of Judah in captivity had even married strangers, especially was this true of the Priest line.
Chapter 4 of the book of Micah is for the last days.-----And we are told that the mountain (nation or government) of the House of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains (nations) and be exalted above the hills (little nations) and people will flow into it. Then we are told that many nations will come and say: "Come let us go up to the mountain (nation) of the LORD to the House of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in his paths. For the law shall go forth of Zion (the government) and the WORD of the LORD from Jerusalem (New Jerusalem--for God was moving his people out of the old land.)
The prophet Micah has now told us that the government and the Word of the Israelites has now left the old land of Palestine so look for it somewhere in the west for the migrations of God's people pointed that way.
Now, Verse 3:...And HE shall judge among many people, and rebuke a strong nations a far off and then shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hook, and Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war no more.
Verse 4:...But they shall sit every man under his own vine and under his own fig tree; and none shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Verse 5:...For all people will walk everyone in the name of his god, and we (the children of the kingdom) will walk in the name of the LORD---Jesus the Christ, or God forever and forever. (Read that again)--All right:---every man under his vine--his path of creation and under his fig tree--you find the Jews. But we will walk in the name of YAHSHUA JESUS THE CHRIST. This we are trying today to do but we still are under the yoke of the 'tares.' For Christianity today is trying to take in all people and take them all into the heavens with them. When no one is going there as of now except those who have passed thru death. This is on strike against the Promise Keepers, they are trying to appease the World order for their leaders have been taught this way but it will not work. This is going to have to be straightened out for them, a little further along.
Verse 6:..."In that day--(In the day of the LORD), saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halted (Judah went back to Jerusalem to rebuild and stay until the Resurrection). And I will gather her that is driven out, (The House of Israel) And her that I have afflicted.
I will make her that halted a remnant and her that was cast off a strong nation. (The children of Joseph went over the wall to build America). And the LORD shall reign over them in Mount Zion (the government of the established Kingdom administration) from henceforth even forever. (When that Kingdom administration is in place then that is the rest for the Children of God---that is what we are looking for.)
Verse 8:...And thou o tower of the flock (this refers to David thus the throne of David--and to Jerusalem--now New Jerusalem) The strong hold of the Daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem (New Jerusalem)
All right. The throne of David now sits in England and on the walls of Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth can trace her lineage back to King David. Thus she represents literally this Woman of Revelation 12, for the last days in the king line of Israel. Thus a daughter is on the throne of David in England and has been for these past 40 years. She is yet to be delivered --(proclaimed to the world once more). Her mind is also to be renewed.
Thus from symbolism to reality we then find the Woman on the throne for our day which Joanna Southcott also pointed out. For the kingdom is to come to the daughter of Jerusalem . . . to the New Jerusalem of course.
Verse 9:...The LORD then asks (us of this day) why doest thou cry aloud----Is there no king in thee? (Do you not see that Jesus the Christ is your king?) Is thy counselors all perished? For pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail. (Remember that Joanna bowed out of her life in the flesh describing it as the pangs of a woman in travail--but to bring forth the spirit.)
Verse 16:...Then you read:---Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, o’ daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail. (Thus we are to labor in trying to bring in the Kingdom Administration. It will not be handed to us on a silver platter. But look at what we are doing today, at least some are working for this same thing.)
Thus, you are to keep working. Do not quit laboring to bring forth this kingdom administration HERE IN EARTH. For Micah tells you that you were to go forth from the city and dwell in the field (the world) and you shall go even to Great Babylon, and then you shall be delivered. There the LORD shall redeem you (as a kinsman) from the hands of thine enemies.
Verse 11:...Now; many nations shall be gathered against thee, that say let her (Israel) be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion (the government of the Kingdom). The reference here is to the writings of Obadiah and Edom ---the Jews.
Verse 12:...But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand his counsel, for HE shall gather them like the sheaves unto the floor (for burning).
Verse 13:...Arise and thresh o daughter of Zion (13 = Manasseh) for I will make thine horn iron and thy hoofs brass and thou shalt beat in pieces many people. (See? You do not join them unto yourselves. And I will consecrate (devote) their gain unto the LORD, of the whole earth.
In the rest of the book of Micah which also pertains to THAT DAY --(the day of the LORD---when he takes charge). So gather yourself into troops, for you are to have sore tribulation from the enemy. For the enemy has laid siege against Israel, and they even smite the Judge of Israel (the Messiah). But Bethlehem of Ephratah, (signifying that this is a little group of the thousands of Judah)---Yet out of ME shall HE come forth unto Me (the spirit) that is to be the ruler in Israel. (This coming forth ---there are two coming forths; one is I Thess. 5:2, 3, and II Thess. 2:8--the former being in Grace and the latter in Judgment.
Verse 3:...Therefore will HE give them up (Israel) until the time that She which travaileth hath brought forth, that the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
Verse 4:...And then HE (the shepherd of Israel) shall stand and feed (tend as a shepherd, his sheep) in the strength of YAHWEH in the majesty of the name of Israel's God for now HE shall be great to the ends of the earth. (Now the Promise Keepers can go to the ends of the earth and tell them of our God, and they will understand and not fight them).
Verse 5:...And the man (this shepherd of Israel shall be the Peace (understanding)
Verse 6:...When the enemy comes into our land, and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. (When this time comes then we shall see the meaning as men -- Adamic men. For Christ is called the Son of man.) And they shall waste (eat up) the land of the enemy with the sword. Thus shall HE deliver us from the enemy as he comes into your land, and when he treadeth within our borders.
Verse 7:...And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew, from the LORD, as showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of man. (Thus HE does it for us.)
Verse 8:...And the remnant of Jacob shall be (this refers to Restored Israel) in that day among the Gentiles (the nations) in the midst of many people, as a lion among the beast of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep. Who if they go thru, HE treadeth down and none can deliver.
Verse 9:...Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries and all thine enemies shall be cut off.
Verse 10:...And it comes to pass that in that day saith the LORD that I will cut off thy horses (the military power) out of the thee, and destroy their chariots as well.
Verse 11-14:...And HE cuts off cities and throw down strongholds, and the standing images, and takes the groves of the heathen out of Israel and bring vengeance to anger, upon the heathen such as they never have heard before. (So He is cleansing Israel, taking out very thing that will hinder the kingdom administration.)
In chapter 6, we are told:--Hear ye what the LORD hath said; The LORD hath a controversy with his people. And He will plead with Israel.
Now; he brought you up out of the land of Egypt--redeemed thee out of the house of servant, and made you sons and daughters. His people are now to remember all that HE has done for them. He showed you both the good and the bad, and all he requires of you is to love HIM and have mercy and walk humbly with thy God. Yes, you have followed the wrong path, the path of the enemy. But the enemy shall now bear the reproach of his people.
Chapter 7 of Micah is a lamentation.---Evils are lamented. And we find that remedies sometimes are vain only those from YAHWEH being true.
The NOTICE:----Verse 5: Trust ye not in a friend, put your confidence not in a guide, keep the doors (lips) of your mouth from he that lieth in thy bosom (our enemy). (In other words be careful whom you talk to and try to share your inheritance with).
Verse 6:--For the son dishonoreth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man's (Adam's) enemies are the people of his own house. (This pertaining to the House of Windsor---David’s throne.--Then the son dishonors the heavenly father as he breaks his laws. The daughter defied her mother in marriage, and the daughter-in-law--Princess Diana--in her striking out because of her treatment as the wife of Charles, was going out into the World order with the idea of bringing down the Monarchy.---So YAHWEH stopped that as he took her home and now she will soon know better.)
So what does Restored Israel then do?-----
Verse 7:...I will look unto the LORD and I will wait for the God of my salvation, My God will hear me. Mine enemies shall not rejoice over me. For I (Israel) shall arise, the LORD is a light unto me. Mine enemies should not rejoiced for they shall see my restoration. And the other kingdom (Satan's kingdom shall see it for they have said:---'Where is the LORD thy God? But now they shall be trodden down as the mire of the streets.
And as HE did when he brought Israel out of the land of Egypt HE will show you marvelous things. And HE will confirm the truth unto Jacob and the mercy of Abraham which He hath sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.
(Thus we suggest that you read the book of Micah and remembering all that we have learned over the years. And use the Companion Bible if you have one.)
