You have always heard as a gentile that only a few will enter the gates of Zion. Out of the billions of gentiles in the world, as it is written for the Jewish nation ,as well as the Gentiles, only a remnant will enter the heavens to meet the Lord. I have been indicating that in my blogs every so often. As they say in Poker call my hand to see if I’m bluffing.
Well let’s see what the prophet Isaiah has to say about the remnant of the house of Jacob. Walk with me back in time to mile marker, 8th century BC. Isa. 10: 17-22. It is widely believed that Isaiah wrote this letter ,when the Jewish people were in exile in Babylon, somewhere around 587 BC. This is a future prophetic event for it was penned 300 years after their release of the Jewish nation by King Cyrus. Jacob in the Hebrew language means Israel and in that regard sets the narrative from our Lord in the next couple of verses.
Let’s look at vs. 17;
And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;
Israel light shall burn like a fire, refers to the covenant made to the Israel nation by the Lord , Holy One that is Christ.. He already built the temple in 3 days when He was Resurrected. The word thorns and briers are wild roses they all have all have one thing in common they are all sharp to the touch. Thorns and briers is a figurative expression of children’s worship of ideologies ( idols) instead of worshipping the Lord. Judgement will come in one day like a thief in the night. The implication here is that Christ is going to judge us first then the Father.
Let’s look at vs.18;
And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standardbearer fainteth.
Consume refers to judgement as glory of his forest refers to all the Lords children as they are numerous like a forest. We are to produce fruits of the spirit. Field is something you plant in like faith, a mustard seed. Worship of Christ in both body and soul. A standardbearer is someone who carries the banner of Christ. Jewish and Gentiles who think they carry the banner of Christ are going to faint when Christ appears before them.
Let’s look at vs. 19;
And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.
Rest of the trees are the remaining children ,after the judgement, and that will be few in number.
That a child may write on them this a figurative expression. If you ever been in a dense forest it is hard to walk around in once you cut down some trees it is easier for a child to play under the tree.
Let’s look at vs. 20;
And it shall come to pass (judgement) in that day, that the remnant (few) of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him (mans ideologies or idols) that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
Smote them ,figurative expression that refers to man’s ideologies or Idols and will never sting morally on the conscience of the children that believe. Those few who are judged by Christ will be caught up in the heavens with the Lord. The Holy One of Israel is Christ. Just for FYI, Jacob in the Hebrew language means Israel. What we see here in these first 4 vs. is the judgement of Christ on the Jews and the Gentiles. This is the first death. The second death will take place before the Father.
Let’s look at vs. 21;
The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
We already know that remnant means few and Jacob’s name means Israel. Jacob was a shepherd of the people of Israel and broke a covenant with the Lord. No different then the charlatans running around the landscape today anywhere you are in the world. Out of the billions of people who say they believe in Christ only a few will meet the Lord in the heavens.
Let’s look at vs. 22;
For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
Like the Jewish nation the Gentiles are also like the sands of the sea and only a few will return to righteousness. Consumption is a figurative expression it points to the following Mt. 13: 12-13, the separating of the wheat from the chaff.
For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Consumption equals Judgement
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Christ spoke in parables to you to nudge you to think about what He was telling you. He wants you figure out the meaning. It’s like taking a test in school if I gave you the answer to the question you would not understand the context and the meaning of the scriptures. In the same manner if I’m teaching you the word and it does not sound right call me on it. I encourage you to do this. If you think I am wrong quit following me.
I am not here to proselytize any of the hundreds of names that the temples carry on their banner. Nor am I here to build a reputation I write because I love the Lord and walk solely with Him and His the disciples as simple as that.
I encourage you to do like I have always done. Walk into any church anywhere in the world and ask the priest or whatever they call themselves. What is your core doctrine? 100 percent of the time they are going to pull out a pair of Aces, we believe in the Lord and Christ. So you think the hand is starting to look good. Then ask him or her to show you the rest of their hands. Then you are going to get an answer similar to this, women can not wear jeans, men have to wear suits, women have to wear dresses down to their ankles, you can’t come in here wearing filthy clothes the list goes on. All they just did is pull out a pair of eights that have no value. Their cards look good they have the wounds of the cruxifixtion on their hands but not the crown their foreheads. In Poker this is the Dead Man’s Hand they all have the mark of the beast on their foreheads, 666. This is where Christ tells you in the gospel of Luke, You cannot serve two masters , love God or love Mammon, a false influence of worship.. You say you love God but then you put in addendums and change the covenant of the Lord made to His creation.
The Temples of the Gentiles will always tell you they love God but then they made addemdends to the covenant that the Lord made with us. If you’re sitting across the table from me. Ask me to show my hand, I will always lay down, 3 Aces, King High, Father, Son and the Holy Ghost and a pair of Queens, the embodiment of my wife, the bride of the Lamb. My hands will reveal the wounds of truth and the blood of the thorns on my forehead.
For the single woman out there you are the wife, the bride of the Lamb and He is waiting you arrival at the marriage feast so hold the 3 Aces all Kings close to your heart. You have the wounds on your hands everybody can see that even I can see your wounds wherever you at across the world. If I can see it how much more can the Father see. Like most children you do not have the blood of the thorns on your forehead.
Always call the bluff show me your hands. As it is written satan comes like a light in the Temples of the children and teaches you the addendums.
Tomorrow we explore the exciting world of how the Evolutionist using the circle of reasoning logic how the word morphs into another meaning over hundreds of years. Fascinating stuff prove positive that evolution has a logical outcome.
Remember when you show up at the gates of Zion, Christ is going to ask to see your hands and forehead. If you do not have the blood on your forehead the next time you open your eyes you will be sitting across the table from your Father.
