Wisdom [Spiritual Zion, the Bride] has built her house; she has carved-out her seven pillars [seven millennial days]; she has slaughtered her slaughter [sacrificial Beasts]; she has mingled her wine [Old and New Covenant Scriptures]; she has also prepared her table [set in order her doctrinal dishes]. She has dispatched her maidens [messengers]; she calls on the highest heights of the city [Jerusalem]: “Whomsoever is shallow [naive, vain, and lacking understanding], turn around here”; anyone lacking heart, she says to him, “Come, eat of my bread [life-sustaining Doctrine], and drink of the wine [Spirit of the Covenants] I have mingled [made one]. Forsake the foolish and live; and walk in the path [Pathway, Truth, and the Life] of comprehension.”- King Solomon (Prov. 9:1-6) PIT; intrpl. mine

In the first chapter, Aleph, I asserted that the seven assemblies contain thinly-veiled messages concerning the entire Bride citizenry of seven millennial days. Each household (or temple, church) of God is part of a sequence that spans from Adam through the coming of the Messiah on the Great Sabbath, the LORD’s Day. In this chapter those claims will be substantiated as we focus upon subtle millennial messages within the passages. Each millennial assembly alludes to a pillar messenger and theme for their particular day. God reiterates the essential corrections that He had, or will have, for each of the seven congregations, each under their millennial messenger.
 .
The son of David, Solomon, built the first Temple of YHVH in Jerusalem: the city in which he also reigned as the third monarchal king for 40 years over all tribes of Israel, around 1,000 years before Christ. Solomon, the wise thinker and writer, perceived by his father David’s prophecies that a greater King was coming to rule from the Holy City: a King in which his own peaceful and prosperous throne in some ways foreshadowed. 
.
Solomon’s prophetic, proverbial passage about a temple built by wisdom, with a meal and wine prepared, is filled with rich biblical symbolism, in which both rabbinical Judaism and messianic-minded Christians have pondered. Indeed, wisdom’s bread infers more than a mere meal; wine suggests more than the fruit of the vine; and the way of understanding calls for more than simply entering a robust city of an ancient kingdom. Furthermost, at the end of Revelation we find a similar call from glorified Jerusalem: “And the Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ And him hearing, let him say, ‘Come!’ And him thirsting, let come; and him willing, let him take of the water of life freely.”
.
Moreover, there is more to perceive in the passage than a literary call to the corporeal city in which Messiah will soon reign with His glorious Bride of wisdom; there is also a spiritual call for the called-out people– from the seven great assemblies- to forsake simplicity and learn true Doctrine, as well as to revere and comprehend the works of God. This call from wisdom begins with comprehension of the seven pillars in the Divine Temple of Time.

ADAM AND THE DESIRABLE DWELLING: 1st Day Pillar
  
FIRE SKINK, PD Image
FIRE SKINK, pdi

“To the messenger of the Ephesian assembly write: These things says Him holding the seven stars in His right hand, Him walking in the midst of the seven lampstands of gold: ‘I know your toils and your labor, and your endurance, and that you cannot uphold evil ones, having tested those postulating to be apostles [Divinely sent delegates], and are not, and found them liars. And you persevered and had patience, especially due to My name you have toiled and have not wearied.'” all intrpl. mine

To the first ekklesia EPHESUS, which means desirable (as does garden), the Lord introduced Himself with all seven stars and seven candlesticks firmly in place, with Him walking in their midst on the LORD’s Day. This suggests a perfect beginning and Sabbath. It is traditionally agreed that seven is God’s number for completion and perfection. Messiah, with the seven Spiritual attributes of God, walked in the midst of the garden during the seventh millennial day, sharing His enlightenment for righteous living, instructing Adam and Eve in the ways of God.
.  
Nevertheless, the Sabbath paradise was soon lost. A liar slithered in to tempt the young couple. Although Adam was not deceived, he rebelled in temptation to teste the forbidden fruit of knowledge of good and evil, finding that Satan had indeed lied. Because the Key of Knowledge (i.e., 1 day equals 1,000 years to God) was forbidden and hidden in the beginning, Adam and Eve soon after faced severe punishment for their disobedience. Adam’s punishment was that he would toil in the harsh, cursed earth by the sweat of his brow, and Eve’s was increased pain in labor, difficulty giving birth. Hence, the desirable assembly contains several terms for their perseverance: bearing, toils, endurance, etc.
.
During the Holocene Optimum (“wholly new”), the entire region of southern Mesopotamia was very desirable (as was most of the Near/Middle East and even lush North Africa), but during the days of Adam, the people of the region began to suffer increasingly arid conditions and loss of vegetation. Even Eden- a land of rivers supporting migrating animals from Saudi Arabia and surrounding regions- became unrecognizable during the curse.

Adam & Eve Cast Out and Cursed to Hard Toil and Labor
Adam & Eve Cast Out and Cursed to Hard Toil and Labor, PDI

One of the two terms that appear to stand out as unfitting for the day of Adam and Eve, unique to the Church Age, is “apostles.” However, when we learn what the word actually means, we easily perceive an equivalent of false apostles- the rebellious “sons of God” in the first millennial day. The Lord’s apostles had to endure false doctrines from deceived people who crept into their congregations, presenting themselves as delegates sent from God; apparently, something similar occurred in the days of Adam and Eve, which was when the messengers (angels) of God rebelled with fallen adamkind and left their appointed domain/region.

“Yet I have against you that you left your first love. Remember, therefore, where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works. Or if not, I am coming to you quickly, and will remove your candlestick from its place, lest you repent. But this you have, that you loathe the deeds of the Nicolaitans [conquering warriors], which I likewise loathe. Him having an ear, hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies: To the overcoming, I will grant for him to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.” (Rev. 2:4-7) intrpl. mine

RETURN TO THE TREE OF EVERLASTING LIFE, PDI
RETURN TO THE TREE OF EVERLASTING LIFE, PDI

Now that the spiritual veil has been pulled back, the rest of the message to the first assembly/church needs little explanation. Adam and Eve’s “first love” was the Lord; their fall was into sin; their “first works” were indeed the first works of enlightened humankind found in Scriptures- tending the garden and naming its creatures and beasts. The warning to their age was that they could not shine as a light upon the Household of God if they failed to repent. Their great works for God, to bring enlightenment, would be left in the darkness of ancient history.

As for the Nicolaitans of the 1st century, most scholars agree that their identity has been largely lost to history (see image below). Much like the rebellious nephilim of the first millennial day, these would-be great ones of the Church- meaning, victorious over the people– have only left us a faint record, followed by Divinely-given disrepute. Nonetheless, for Adam and all who have turned back their hearts to the wisdom of the Just, a promise was left of them returning to paradise and the Tree of Life.

sophia14In conclusion, readers should now discern that the message to the first assembly of Ephesus correlates line-upon-line to the first, biblical millennium, as a highlight and summary of Adam and Eve’s famous fall. This was God’s work in calling humans to repentance in the first millennial day.
.
Only two words in the passage- apostles and Nicolaitans– do not fit literarily with biblical history, but their meanings- commissioned messengers and conquerors of the people– do fit, at least if we learn of the Genesis rebellion of God’s early messengers and conquering nephilim. Indeed, these correlations are not mere coincidences or reaching on my part; rather, they come from the omniscient mind of God and profess His brilliant works since the beginning of our world-age.

NOAH AND THE BITTER BET: 2nd Day Pillar
.
GREAT TRIBULATIONS, PDI
GREAT TRIBULATION of Noah, PDI

“And to the messenger of the ekklesia of Smyrna, write: These things says the First and the Last, who died and then lived: ‘I know of your works, and the tribulation, and the impoverishment; but you are wealthy- and the blasphemy of  those claiming themselves to be Jews, and they are not, but rather an assembly of Satan.’” (2:8-9)

To the second ekklesia SMYRNA means bitter, as in bitter herbs (eaten during Seder and given among herbs at Christ’s birth and tomb), the Lord introduced Himself as the “First and the Last,” who died but then lived. These things suggest bitterness in death but also new, better life through Christ, which indeed fit with the flood of Noah. Oceans are called “marine,” filled with “marine life,” because the waters are bitter- the root meaning of the term “marine.” Also relevant to the age, People of Noah’s region longed for relief from their bitter toils. The ground was cursed, and they wanted rain. Thus, Noah, whose name means relief, was prophesied over at birth: that God would provide deliverance through him. Further, the bitterness of the second millennial day from Adam extended beyond agricultural woes and loss of rainfall; the world was filled with evil and senseless violence, warfare, and all thoughts of mankind had become malicious and bitter. As the bitter fruits of the ground were toilsome and cursed, so was the Lord’s harvest of souls; even Lord YHVH relented that He had made man on the earth, according to Scripture, and He was grieved- painfully embittered– in His heart.
.   
The “works, poverty, and tribulation,” that the Lord said He knew, infers the hard work of Noah and his family in building the ark; the tribulations that they endured during the flood; and the destruction and poverty of the ancient Mesopotamian world that the flood initially left behind. Aftermaths of great floods and tsunamis have been seen by most people today via global media coverage, with villages and towns left impoverished- structures and homes left in rubble and utter ruin during weeks of disrepair. Certainly, we would have seen the same things in Noah’s flood. Moreover, these terms parallel the pinnacle biblical event of the second millennium from Adam: the Great Deluge.
.
As for the Lord telling them that they were “wealthy” or “rich,” this suggests that they were rich in spirit with their God, whereas many lukewarm people in the final assembly of Laodicea would think themselves rich, but they are seen as spiritually poor; they would be “spewed out” by the Lord if they did not repent. Perhaps, the passage also alludes to the fact that Noah and family became inheritors of the ancient Mesopotamian world.
.   
The anomaly in the above passage is the Lord’s mention of false Jews, just as there is seemingly an anomaly of false apostles in the prior assembly. In Smyrna, this blaspheming congregation has a literary connection with the hard works, tribulation, and poverty that the elect of God had to suffer. Thus, we must ask a similar question as with the first assembly to discern a parallel between the early ekklesia and the days of Noah: Hence, ‘What does it mean to be a true Jew?’ From Scriptures we know that Jews consist of people from the tribes of Judah, Levi, and Benjamin. They are of Israeli tribes- the children of Judah who have retained their cultural identity over millennia. Nationally, as disclosed in Scriptures, Israel is called God’s “firstborn son.” So, once again we find a parallel between the “sons of God” in Genesis, who were being led astray by Satan, with the 1st century false Jews of a congregation of Satan. The Bible states that the false messengers and rebellious sons of God of the second millennial day were committed to chains of darkness during the flood of Noah. Hence, it appears as if Noah and his family suffered during their works from people who falsely claimed to be the chosen sons or firstborn children of God.
.   
The troubles endured by Noah- a preacher of righteousness- and his family parallel the persecution of early Jewish Christianity, if we consider that during the 1st century many Jews (initially including Saul) despised the teaching of salvation through Christ. (Of course, straying Christendom soon after became the persecutors of Jews for over 1,500 years.)
.
In other words, the ark of salvation in Noah’s day may have been as mocked and despised by the “sons of God” as the teaching of salvation through Christ was by many religious zealots of Judaism. Judah literally means the people praised, so it is likely that those who “claimed to be Jews, and are not” simply means that there were some people in Noah’s day who claimed to be praised by God, but in reality they were following Satan in rebellion and persecuting Noah and those who were actually doing God’s will of salvation. Satan deceived them.

Lamb of Redemption at 10,000 Years, Ten Days to God, Picture Mine
Christ, Lamb of Redemption at 10,000 Years, Ten Days to God, IM

“Do not fear at all what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison so that you may be tried, and you will receive infliction until ten days. Be faithful even unto death, and I will grant you the crown of life.” (2:10)

To comprehend how the above passage is relevant to the great flood of Noah, we must first know a few things about God’s panoramic plan of redemption.
.
When Messiah died, He went and preached the Gospel of Life to many spirits who were in prison (a spiritual holding place), and many of them had been there since the days of Noah (cf. 1 Pet. 3:17-22; 4:5-6). Kefa knew this because He had talked with the Messiah after He arose from the tomb. Christ went, as prophecies in Isaiah foretold, to set the prisons free. 
.
Now keep in mind that it would not only be senseless to preach salvation and life to those spirits if they were to remain in prison forevermore, it would also be sadistic. To believe that He who has the keys of death and the unseen realm of Hades would leave the spirits there- those who believed upon Him- is bad theology and utterly illogical.
.
Indeed, the passages of the Epistle of Peter must be distorted by those who also distort the original meaning of being born again, if they are to make sense of them with their simple comprehension. They confuse the everlasting lake of fire at the end of the age (i.e. at the G.W.T.J.) with the prison place of the dead. The Gospel was preached to those who were dead so that their judgments would be in the flesh, meaning, that they could truly live, and live according to God in spirit. They were born again and gained new life.
.
When Christ died for the sins of the world, it truly changed everything. Those who believed would not have to wait until the last day to live, as the Lord explained to Martha when resurrecting Lazarus, but Christ was given the power from On High to do in righteousness as He so pleases. Some of the well-intact, recently-dead saints were raised from the dead at the cross, if you will believe the Gospels, but the common means of entering life in this world is via the matrix of maternity- the breaking of water with the spirit returning like the wind to live life once again. This is the truth, and it is performed at the discretion of our Lord.
.   
Nonetheless, our salvation is not dependent upon believing in this means of reentering life, which is why Lord Yeshua said “If you are able to receive it” when speaking of John being Elijah. Yet, we should consider that God is the “God of the living,” not the dead, and the blood of the dead cries out because they want to live. The dead seem to better comprehend the preciousness of life. This world, this universe of millions of worlds, was created for the living, to share with the children of mankind.  
.
But now I must digress, for I know of the few passages that are misused to refute this simple truth, and this is a book of revealing truths rather than one of endless arguing with the obstinate. Let the obstinate find a way for them to receive sevenfold in this age after becoming a martyr for Christ, and eternal life in the age to come. Let them struggle over how those who pierced Him will see Him at His coming and mourn, although they are not part of the first resurrection of beheaded martyrs of the Apocalypse. Let them reject the coming of Moses as a witness in Jerusalem so that they can maintain their flawed eschatology and posit someone else, such as Enoch. And let them wonder why Christ never rebuked His apostles for thinking along this same line of the truth, seeing that Jews knew that He was born of Mariam and yet supposed He might be Jeremiah or one of the prophets- those who died centuries earlier. Let them wonder how an infant can sin to be born blind, as the disciples considered. I say that no infant in the womb sins; hence, we know of what Christ did not rebuke them for actually suggesting. Let the obstinate ponder how some of those standing with Christ would not see death but pass to life. Let them find a way for those who were eaten by lions and burned to ashes are to be resurrected to reign in the flesh with the Lord when He comes to reign over nations with a rod of iron.
.
As for me, the scribe, I must move on. But before I do, readers should be warned that it is indeed a false doctrine to teach that billions of people who have died, having never heard the Gospel, will spend an eternity in Hell; God is both merciful and just, and unjust scales of judgment are an abomination in His sight, as written in Scripture. The Gospel is to be preached to all people for life.
.   
As for the Messiah mentioning “affliction ten days” before the faithful receive “the crown of life,” the cross was appointed at 10,000 years (6,000 years of creation/restoration plus 4,000 years from Adam to the cross), which are ten days to God. (See Moedim Paradigm.) When the ten appointed days were complete, the Lord made atonement for humankind, which is why Yom Kippur was appointed to the 10th day of Tishri and the Pesach lambs were selected for slaughter on the 10th day of Aviv.
.
Jews have an ancient practice of afflicting their souls for ten days that are complete on Yom Kippur, called the “Days of Awe” or “Days of Woe.” In their belief, that custom foreshadows the great Day of Judgment, when God YHVH determines who all are written in the Book of Life. Jews who followed Christ, however, knew that atonement and life were given at the cross, which ends the affliction for ten days. Again, the people who were killed and put in the spiritual prison during the flood of Noah endured until ten millennial days were complete, when Christ went into the spiritual prison and preached the Gospel of Life. And the second death will have no power over those who accept it.
.
“Those having an ear, hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies, the overcoming will not at all be hurt by the second death.” (2:11)
.
In conclusion, God does not have but two dates in the future to judge mankind, but He judges throughout history, as biblically disclosed by the long plight of Israelites and surrounding nations that were judged by God. The flood was the first great judgment on the world since Adam, and the world endured something like a baptism of water. The dead were left below as Noah and his family rose to new life. Although God judges individually over time, He also judges nations and the world. The final world judgment will be a baptism of fire.
.
The flood of Noah was the 8th day in the total 12,000 appointed years (including the 6 days of creation) before the Great Sabbath, but there is coming another 8th day which is the second death. That eighth day is the Shemini Atzereth, kept in the moedim shadows, which we Christians know as the Great White Throne Judgment. For this reason, Peter mentioned the eight who were saved through water, which was a type of baptism.
So the promise of quickly removing the candle, given by the Lord on the first day, was fulfilled for many rebellious people who died in the flood of Noah, but the message we receive from the flood still shines in the household of God to this very day. As for those who rebelled, even back then, God loves them and has given grace for a new day of life.

MOSES AND THE HOUSE OF HEIGHTS: 3rd Day Pillar

From Heights of Egypt to Heights of Sinai, Image Mine
From Heights of Egypt to Heights of Sinai

“And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos, write: These things says Him possessing the whetted, two-mouthed sword: “I know your labors and where you dwell, where the throne is of Satan. And you upheld My name [YHVH HaShem], and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas my faithful martyr, who was killed alongside you, where Satan dwells.”” (2:12-13)

To the third ekklesia PERGAMOS, which means heights or exalted, fortified places, the Lord introduced Himself as the One possessing the sharp, double-edged sword. This is significant for the third millennial day, when Israelites first received the scrolls of Torah, because the Word of God is biblically depicted as a sharp, doubled-edged sword. It illustrates God dividing His people from those whom His Word falls sharply against. A two-mouthed sword means that God’s Word speaks judgment against the rebellious while saving those who are humble before Him. The sword of the Word also brings an internal war for a soul seeking the truths of God, cutting away errant ideas and beliefs.

JUBILEE LIFE OF MOSHE
JUBILEE LIFE OF MOSHE; image mine

To this congregation, the Lord said that He knows where they dwell, which was where Satan’s throne and seat of power was. During the first century A.D., Egypt had lost much of its former glory, but when Israel was in bondage there, Egypt was at the pinnacle of worldly power.

When the people cried-out to their God, and He saw their afflictions, and how the Egyptians harshly ruled over them, He sent Moshe, and Aaron as Moses’ prophet, and during this period God had Moshe reveal the sacred name of God to Hebrews. And just as the Revelation passage indicates, the Israelites upheld His name, although many of them rebelled several times during God’s deliverance.

Pergamos, however, was never a city in ancient Egypt, rather it came much later in Turkey. Having written that, Satan boasted to Messiah that all the empires of the world were his, to give them to whomever he pleases, if only the Messiah would bow before him. And in Daniel we find that Satan is not devoted to any one, particular people; rather, he places his throne wherever there is power to resist God’s will for a holy people and Kingdom of Israel, from the Sumerians to the Egyptians, from Egyptians to Assyrians, from there to the Babylonians, to the Medes and Persians, to the Romans, from the Byzantines of the Roman Empire to the great theft made by the Ottoman Empire.
.
Satan corrupts all nations, kingdoms, and empires- many of which began with virtuous peoples seeking civilization and universal justice. But he leaves them utterly destroyed in their moral depravity, with their former glory replaced with historical shame. According to some rabbinical teachings, Egypt represented Satan’s throne on Earth during the exodus period. Christian thinkers have largely agreed, that the Hebrews’ escape from Egypt symbolizes our escape from the world to live in the presence of God. Wherever there is power to rule over the Near/Middle East, as to hinder or prevent the coming Kingdom of Heaven at Israel, or at least control the people and region, such is the place where Satan erects his lofty throne.
..   
Also mentioned by the Lord is Antipas– a faithful witness and martyr killed where Satan dwells. Antipas’ life in the 1st century eludes historians. Likewise, there is no perfect human parallel from the Exodus account. We are left with the meaning of his name, which is substitute father. The near-sacrifice of Isaac falls on the beginning of the third millennium from Adam, but this was too soon to fit within the Exodus story. And, as far as we know from Scripture, Joseph died of natural causes. So who could this witness to God- His substitute martyr– during the Exodus be? Could it imply the firstborn sons of Israel who were slain by the Egyptians?
.
In the New Covenant Scriptures, we find that Yeshua (Jesus) was sent by the Father and became a faithful witness, martyred for His testimony, but in the exodus His sacrifice was prefigured by paschal lambs. Thus, the plausible correlations I cannot ascertain; there simply is not enough information given, and God has not told me. Perhaps we are purposively left considering all of the slaves and firstborn sons who were killed in ancient Egypt for their heritage and/or faith in God. The Scriptures are literarily silent on most of what took place during those 400 years of Habiru servitude and bondage.
.   
“But I have a few things against you, since there you have those embracing the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling-stone before the sons of Israel, to eat idol sacrifices, and to engage in fornication. Thus, you also have those embracing the teaching of the Nicolaitans, which is something I loathe. Repent! And if not, I will come to you shortly, and I will battle them by the sword of My mouth.” (2:14-16)
.
Much of this parallel to the exodus and wilderness journey of the 3rd millennial day is self-evident. But for those who do not know Old Testament Scriptures, Balaam was a Gentile prophet who was contracted by the king of Moab to reveal what he foresaw concerning Israel’s slow march towards the Promised Land. When the prophet Balaam could only bless Israel (and their coming Messiah), Balak asked Balaam how he could cause the children of Israel to curse themselves. His answer was for the men of Israel to engage in relationships with the women of the land, thus bringing a curse from God because of their involvement with regional idols.
.   
To the opposite extreme, there were some Hebrews who taught that they were divinely selected by God because they were physically or spiritually superior to other peoples. Recall that the word Nicolaitans means conquerors of the people or people slayers. While it is true that the Lord would have the Israelites clear Canaan of the remaining pagan nations for His righteous kingdom, it had nothing to do with Israelites being gods among the nations. God saved them as humble slaves, and they were to fight those who would not leave, as servants of the Lord, not as Nephilim or cruel oppressors. All the nations of the region had already heard that Israel was on its way to claim the land for God, and about what had happened to Egypt during their exodus; their refusal to heed God’s will for the Hebrews was to their own demise- destruction not determined because of any superior attributes of the children of Israel. Such a doctrine is from Satan, no matter who may embrace it.
.
“The one having an ear, hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To the one overcoming, I will grant him to eat from the hidden manna. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name being written, which no one knows accept the one receiving.” (2:17)
.
When the children of Israel dwelled in the wilderness for 40 years, God fed them with manna. Some of that manna, they hid in the Ark of the Covenant as a memorial item. It has long been a rabbinical teaching that the prophet who was taken-up in a whirlwind would someday return the hidden things, such as the manna, the rod that blossomed, miraculous oil, etc. However, the Messiah said that He is the true Manna from Heaven,” and they must eat of His doctrine and sacrifice to sustain their lives. Thus, the only hidden manna that Jews will receive is the Messiah being revealed to them. Indeed, the hidden manna is the doctrine of the Messiah that has been hidden from the nation by God, and what God has hidden He can also reveal at the appointed time.
.   
When Israel crossed over the Jordan River, Joshua had them set up twelve memorial stones in the dry bed, one for each of the twelve tribes. Likewise, those who have part in the coming Kingdom will be divided into twelve tribes, and the stone given to them will be a verdict of innocence before the Lord- a pass into the Promised Kingdom. Those who receive the hidden manna of Christ will also receive it as a token of purity with their sins atoned for.  
.   
In conclusion, other than a few terms that were not utilized until a much later age, and perhaps need consideration for their correlations, the totality of the message to the third congregation aligns perfectly with the assembly of Israelites that was called out of Egypt and into the Promised Land, within the third millennial day. One need only to eat of the hidden manna and to listen to Ruach HaKodesh.

YESHUA AND THE ABODE OF BURNING INCENSE: 4th Day Pillar

Son of God Feeding Judean Multitude, PDI

“And to the messenger of the assembly in Thyatira, write: ‘These things says the Son of God- Him having His eyes like a blaze of fire [refining], and His feet like burnished brass.’” (2:18) intrpl. mine

To the fourth ekklesia THYATIRA, which means burning incense, the Lord introduced Himself as the “Son of God,” which is significant because He came to Judea at the close of the 4th millennial day from Adam, and during this time He became known as both the “Son of David” and the “Son of God.”

In fact, He warned the prior congregation that He would come quickly if they did not repent, and He would battle those who taught the aforementioned, errant doctrines with the double-edged sword of His mouth (His words). This refinement appointed for the Jewish people is illustrated by eyes of fire and feet like burnished brass, as foretold by the prophets (see Mal. 3:1-4). Hence, the promise was again kept the next millennial day.

Framework For All 22 Biblical Millenniums, IM
Framework For All 22 Biblical Millenniums, IM

The fourth millennial day began with the united Kingdom of Israel and was complete at the end of Christ teaching in Judea, Samaria, Galilee, etc. Thus, Thyatira, the great assembly of the 4th day (10th from the Genesis restoration)illustrates ascending prayers from the Temple, answered by God: the age of the kings and Temple priests. Thyatira can also be termed a continual sacrifice, which  points to Messiah’s crucifixion at the end of the 4th day. By Him, the prayers of the elect ascend before God.

Moreover, the Lord choosing Thyatira to represent this millennium is due to the fact that the Temple of God was constructed during this time, then rebuilt after the Babylonian Captivity, and finally renovated by Herod. Incense are closely related with Temple sacrifices and priestly worship. And, it was written in Malachi that the Lord, as Messiah, would quickly come to His Temple.

Other than the aforementioned warning against idolatry during the kingdom years, this assembly receives an overall excellent report in Revelation. I believe this is because God focuses on Christ at the end of it rather than all the trespasses of the Israelites that took place during this millennial day.

Yeshua Carrying the Light, PDI
Yeshua Bringing Light, PDI

“I know of Your works, and the love, and the ministry, and the faith, and Your patience, and Your works, and the Last being more [greater] than the first. Yet I have against you a few things, that you suffer that woman Jezebel- the one calling herself a prophetess- to teach and to seduce My servants to err, commit fornication, and to eat idol sacrifices. And I gave her time so that she might repent of her fornications, and she did not repent. Indeed, I will cast her into a sickbed, and those committing adultery with her into fierce tribulation, unless perchance they repent of their deeds. And her offspring I will slay with death; and all the assemblies will discern that I am the One searching innermost-parts and hearts, and I will grant to each of you according to your deeds.” (2:19-23)

During the fourth millennium, King Ahab and Queen Jezebel reigned at the peak of the northern kingdom’s apostasy into paganism. Izebel, the daughter of a pagan, brought in various forms of witchcraft and expanded Israel’s Baal and Asherah worship by erecting images in high places, and by appointing their priests to prominent positions. She also had the prophets of God murdered as they went into hiding, for fear of their lives. The above passage can also read that God searches the kidneys and hearts, as a rebuke to her and those who prophesied of the future through entrails.
.   
Israel became completely corrupt, and their hearts could not be turned back to God but for a brief and incomplete moment in their history. In the said year 722 B.C., God allowed the Assyrians to lead the entire northern nation of Israelite tribes into captivity and scatter them about the nations. Judah, however, was spared destruction for over a century thereafter (i.e., when Babylon destroyed the Temple and led Jews away). 
.
This is the fourth and central Pillar in a Temple of Seven Heavens, most essential in upholding the whole Household of God. This is the Zemor HaMenorah– the candle Branch with the Spirit of God, from whom all anointing oil and light branches out into the ages of mankind, like a glorious vine. This is the true fruitful Vine of the Promised Land, cut-down and carried back from the Valley of Eshcol, as a Witness to God’s promised provisions, carried between them, hung upon a pole. This is the hidden Netsar– the guarded Descendant and Branch of Jesse. He is the Capstone, Cornerstone, Plummetstone, and Keystone of our faith, who locks all the stones into place, revealing and upholding the door of the Messianic Kingdom. This is the true Creator and orchestrator of the Moedim Paradigm, who has interwoven His mysteries into the millenniums, as expressed in His ancient texts, revealing the appointed times. And of Him, the Spirit comes upon me to introduce and to proclaim to Israel in my own peculiar way, for the Sword is lifted high, drawing all the elements of the world to the Great Creator- glory unsurpassed and given from the heart of the true God of the Universe, even from the time of our beginning:
  
O despised One among the little limbs and light twigs, we perceived You in ancient times as the burning Bush of our God, our Elohim YHVH, with the fiery Spirit set ablaze at the beginning of the meek and liberated assembly, growing gloriously as the awaited Branch, even to the fruitful Tree cast down into bitter waters of the wilderness Word; yes, we looked to the greatness of Your rising, of Your blossoming in our awaited sacrifice, as the Rod of God’s righteous judgments. And it is at the tree of Your sacrifice that we find the fruits of eternal life.
.
Demons tremble before Him, as is often said, and the decadence of darkness was dismissed into the abyss at the brightness of His coming. The proclamation of salvation burst forth with power from On-High, and the march of darkness was pressed backwards, shamed into its natural abode of destruction. God, manifest in the flesh, stretched forth His own Arm of Salvation to uphold His Scripture of Truth, and the Sword of His glory electrified the earth like lightening tracing the horizon of the midnight sky. The cracking and roaring of His thunder called all the angels to stand dutifully at attention to the Commander of the Hosts, in the army of our omnipresent God. Whispered upon the staunch lips of the rich, and sought-out by the meek, in the bustling of the poor, the broken-hearted, and down-trodden, God had visited His people. And now His Branch has blossomed as a Rod of correction. The fullness of creation quaked at His reverberating steps, obeying their Maker. The winds of the storm shushed in still silence before Him, and the dead were called instantly back to life at His command.
 .
What the natural eyes could not fully envision, and what the evil eye had shamefully turned away from, the hearts of the hungry could not silently contain, for at the sound of His high and deep glory, from the depths of Hell to the highest Heaven, came an awakening most profound in the sight of the wicked. The long-awaited Messiah had arrived, and all of creation was ordered into a reckoning of His message and Presence. The world would forever be transformed, His people transcended, and the army of His Word would forever grow into the farthest reaches of this evil earth.
.
Others arose in futility, showing themselves to be Him, and they are all but forgotten through the annals of time, but to Him- a Light to the Gentiles and the glory of the Jews- is the worship and adorations of billions, millennium upon millennium, even unto His return to claim His rightful place upon the throne of David, among His faithful, and by the establishment of the everlasting Law of my Almighty, Elohim Yah Most High.
And for this it is written and confirmed by His prophets and endless witnesses, that every knee shall bow; every tongue shall surely confess; and all of His righteous creation shall indeed shout, “Glory!” and “Glory!” “Hallelujah!” and “Amen!” For when the rebellious world learns of the marvelous works that He has done, with the grace He has given, all will perceive that it is both sealed and complete, and that it is finished to the end and confirmed for eternity, to an elect people and a chosen nation orchestrated and ordered according to this everlasting will of our omnipotent Most High. As the prophet has said, they will say, “This is our God, and we have waited for Him! This is our Lord, and He will save us!” For the Salvation of God- His Yeshua- is Him of whom I speak, and the words I speak are a beautiful anointing sent down and decreed from above. Forever live the Great King of Israel and the only God of the world, and all His hosts arise to reign with Him. For in the lowliness of Messiah’s scourging and stripes, He laid down His life as a Shepherd for the folds. Now who may stand so bold before my God Most High and insult the glory of His Great King? It would be better for such a person to have never been born than to battle Him from the mere shadows of His glory.
.
And as Isaiah has also said, every tongue which rises against the people of God will surely be silenced, and every voice which mocks the people who await the Lord shall surely be condemned. No weapon formed against His assembly shall prosper. For He has come, and He will come in His appointed times, and He will not delay in finishing the glorious works which He has determined- His masterpiece of salvation and His works written in the earth for the glorification of His chosen and justified people. For to this we await in Divine trust, and to this we look: the return of the Chosen, the Great King, for whom all of the Law and Prophets was given to witness, to profess blessed. Moreover, and unto His infinite glory, let all His chosen angels shout, “Amen!”
  
The fourth millennium from Adam began with the Kingdom of David and ended with the resurrection of Christ. This was the age when the Temple of God was constructed under King Solomon, then by Zerrubabel and Ezra, and finally reconstructed under King Herod. This is the age of the great prophets, Temple priests, and kings of Israel and Judah; the millennium of Isaiah and Ester; the captivities and the Maccabees; and the millennium capped by Yohannan the Immerser and the revealed Messiah in Judea, preaching the Kingdom as the Son of God.
.
The Lord had been among the assemblies of humanity for four millennial days, in the house of mankind, before being sacrificed at the end of the 4th day. From walking in the garden to the cross at Calvary, at various times He was here. The 4th day is unique because within it He was born as an Israelite. By the morning of the fifth millennial day, none of Him was left, for He had ascended to the Father. Thus, if God, having put all these things together to foreshadow His work in the Lamb- spiritually slain in His foreknowledge before the foundation of the age- decreed that none of the foreshadowing lambs were to be leftover on the next day, we have confidence in knowing that 4,000 years had passed in this period at the time of His ascension.
.
Moreover, with all the signs of times and via our knowledge of scriptural mysteries, we can know that David was a foreshadowing type of Christ, as a beginning for the 4th millennial day, but He who was called the “Son of David” and “Son of God” closed it at the cross.  
Still, I feel compelled to give another example for those who have not been reading these articles, that readers may be assured that the cross of the Messiah is the fourth and central Branch in the heavenly Menorah:

Levi's Image
Ezekiel Measures 4,000 cubits in Waters of the Word; IM

Consider Prophet Ezekiel as the Angel of YHVH showed him the likeness of the 3rd Temple and the new Jerusalem of the coming Great King. Ezekiel’s attention was drawn to water flowing from under the throne of God to both the Salt Sea (or Dead Sea) and the Great Sea (or Mediterranean Sea), as later witnessed by Prophet Zechariah. 

It was explained to the prophet that healing waters from beneath the Temple porch would be sent out to heal the Dead Sea to the east, which is a corporeal thing that will soon witness to Israel’s national atonement.

Clearly the flowing water represent the Word sent out from the throne of God, although geographically this will be accomplished at the return of the Great King. God’s Word goes out to the nations of the seas (Great Sea) and to heal the nation of Israel (the Salt Sea). The Salt Sea (Dead Sea) is last to be healed in the Divine plan, representing the national atonement of Jews, Levites, and Benjamin- those not yet healed. The Dead Sea of Israel is the lowest place on Earth and cannot support life, but God will soon exalt Zion to the clouds and fill the Salt Sea with abundant life as a sign of blessings through the Great King.

This is important because while the Lord was explaining this to Ezekiel, he had the prophet sway through the waters as he measured them 1,000 cubits at a time. With each 1,000 cubits measured, the water became deeper and deeper. Then, at 4,000 cubits, they became a river for swimming, which he could no longer walk in or pass over. Immediately upon this realization at 4,000 cubits, Ezekiel was shown healing trees on the banks of the river, which the angel of God explained would be medicine for healing the nations. The messenger of God also explained that the Dead Sea of Israel would be healed, having abundant life. Fishers would fish it from En Gedi to En Eglaim, which means from the fountain waters of the goat (sinners) to the fountain waters of two calves (two people of God).
.
This infers that the prophets and priests would journey through God’s Word, and it was like rising waters of precepts, prophecies, and commandments, for 4,000 years. The prophet journeyed towards the Dead Sea of Israel, which has no life, but he could not get there by walking on his own. He needed a Passover for himself. He needed the waters of the Word to be rightly divided by the power of God. He needed a new way. Indeed, the currents were too deep and strong for him to continue his journey by his own might; neither could the prophets or priests heal Judah from the nation’s sins by seeking to perfectly keep their ever-deepening oral precepts and newly-created traditions of the Law. Because of their sins, even the holy feasts became repugnant in the sight of God. Yet, at 4,000 years a new way was given at the tree of Jesus Christ; as fruitful trees for healing both Israel and believing nations.
.
Somehow, healing trees related to waters flowing from God’s throne; related to the Dead Sea being healed; related to 4,000 cubits that he could not pass over; and all of this was within a vision of the coming Messianic Kingdom. (It really is not that difficult to comprehend what the prophet was being shown.)
Just as the Great Sea has life before the Salt Sea, the Messiah had to first be accepted by His lost sheep among the Gentiles. Then there could be healing for all of Israel. Salt which has no flavor is cast out, but too much salt (i.e., seasoning/instructions) with the waters of the Word makes it indeed unlivable, undrinkable, and unbearably bitter in condemnations. The Truth is unreachable through Jewish mysticism and all the addition of books considered divine. As Moses showed Hebrews in the wilderness, the tree must be thrown into the bitter waters to save the people as they journey towards the promises of God. That tree which heals, as shown by the prophets, was needed at 4,000 years. Our attention, like Ezekiel’s, is drawn to the healing trees at the place where the Law and Prophets, from Adam to John the Baptist, could not continue without the cross- the tree of healing written alongside the waters of the Word. These are true interpretations, and acknowledging this requires but a little discernment of spiritual symbolism.  
Moses, the Law, was not allowed to bring the elect into the Promised Land, but a new savior of promise was given at the end of their journey; he would divide the waters of the Word for the Israelites to pass over. Joshua, the promised one, pictures the work done by the Messiah. Yeshua will bring us into the paradise of tomorrow, and this reveals the current world to be more like a wilderness of spiritual desolations, hardships, trials, and deep sorrows. The laws of the wilderness are as a shadow and remain incomplete without the Divinity given by promise, grace, and faith.
.
Now, I will reiterate upon another mystery of the appointed times of God- for those who have not read the other articles- that professes Messiah as the original sacrificial Lamb for the Promised Kingdom of tomorrow. Focus upon these ripples of the water:
.
Every 50th year was set aside as a year of redemption for Israelite slaves, as well as an opportunity for them to buy back their tribal inheritances in the nation. Jubilee Years, when slaves were set free, are markers to commemorate God’s deliverance of Israel from national slavery, and freedom from the cruel taskmasters of Egyptian law. Yet God, through Moses, declared His Jubilee Years for an even greater witness of liberty than is currently know by most of His people. (Jewish rabbis: You can never reach the true 50th level without these truths, and true freedom and inheritance in the promised world of tomorrow come with them.)
Moses was 80 years old when the lambs of the first Passover were slain, when Israel was delivered from their oppressors and began to journey towards the promises of the kingdom. It was then that the deep waters were divided and a way was given for the chosen nation to pass over, victoriously. Their enemies were defeated and Israel began a new journey with new expectations of a holy kingdom.
All these things were given as prophetic signs for believers to properly interpret for the millennial ages of the world. This reveals that 80 Jubilee Years had to pass in the world- which is 4,000 years- before the true Lamb of God would be sacrificed for our redemption and deliverance. Then, the deep waters of the Word were properly divided for us, and the spiritual forces of demonic taskmasters, who used the Law to increase our afflictions, were defeated by the truths of God’s deep waters coming down upon them.
.
In other words, because of the cross, given to us at 80 Jubilee Years from the beginning, we were given a Passover of life and a journey for the Promised World of the Messianic dominion. Those who increased the burdens of God’s righteous Law, for their own religious pride and earthly building projects, were overcome by the Word Himself- God’s chosen way for deliverance. What am I saying? Moses is symbolic of God’s righteous commandments from the Genesis, and Moses commanded the lambs be slain for Pesach; Moses- the Law- led the people, and his years are a shadow of the greater redemption of God for His chosen in the world.

2,000 Cubits Means 2,000 Years Following, Image Mine
2,000 Cubits Means 2,000 Years in Following, (40 Jubilee Years) IM

Moses led the children of Israel in the wilderness for 40 years, but he could not bring them into the Promised Land, for the Law alone cannot complete the works of God. At 120 years of age, Moses died, and Joshua was accepted by the people who once followed Moses. At the completion of 40 more Jubilee Years- after 2,000 years since the Passover of the messianic Lamb- the waters of the Word will be miraculously opened for the children of God to enter the glorious Sabbath Kingdom. Water was divided at Moses’ 80th year, redeeming the people after the Passover lambs were slain, and water was again divided after Moses’ 120th year, showing a way into the promised kingdom. At 80 Jubilee Years from the beginning of Adam, the Lamb of God was sacrificed according to the Law, and at 120 Jubilee Years new waters will be opened for His return to bring in all of the Lord’s spiritual harvest.

Then, as God told Noah, His Spirit will not strive with mankind, for the Ark of Salvation will be completed in the world for His people. 120 Jubilee Years- 6,000 years- will be complete, with the righteous gathered in, even as it was prophesied to Noah, with the 120 years proclaimed to him. For this reason, Noah was 600 years old when salvation came to him and his family- himself being a sign and tithe of the 6,000 years which lead to the salvation of Israel at Messiah’s coming. The world is saved for the elect inheritors at 120 Jubilee Years.  

Again, the Son of God came at the end of the 4th millennium with His vision blazing with the fire of the Holy Spirit, showing that He would refine His people at the end, like His brass feet and the gold of the altar. As the people were first prepared for His refinement by John, at the close of 4,000 years, so will the Lord prepare those brought forth with prophecy at the close of 6,000 years, establishing a holy priesthood for His coming.  
.
“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord [Yeshua], whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appeareth? For he is like a refiner’s soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.” (Mal. 3:1-3) KJV
.
The message of the Spirit to the 4th millennium is that God knew the charity, faith, patience, works, and the last to be more than the first. If the first message was to Adam and his generation, the second to Noah, then the third to Moses and his generation, who would be the elect person whom the 4th assembly centers upon other than Messiah Yeshua? The charity, faith, patience, works, and the last to be more than the first shows Jesus’ placement and blessed works as the central Branch of God’s heavenly Menorah.
.
And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening Spirit. The first man is of earth, earthly; the second man is the Lord from heaven. (1 Cor. 15:45, 47) NKJV; emp. mine
.
The Lord, after introducing Himself and declaring His works as the Son, brought forward the main issues that He had against the fourth millennial assembly, which were national fornication and idolatry in the kingdom years. Because of those things, among others, the Lord destroyed the nation of Israel and sent them into Assyrian captivity c. 722 B.C. He also allowed Babylon to destroy Jerusalem and take the nation of Judah into captivity c. 586 B.C. Corruption and idolatry filled the nation many times during this millennium, from most of the kings on down to the common people. King Ahab and his wife Jezebel were the pinnacle examples of the wicked leadership of this age. Hence, the Lord gave a warning to Jerusalem behind the guise of evil Jezebel:
Not withstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou suffereth that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornications; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a sick bed, and them who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.’ (Rev. 2:20-22) KJV
.
In the 4th millennium, Jezebel was cast down to her death by her eunuchs at Jezreel (meaning, Seed of God). Also, the seventy sons of Ahab in Samaria were slaughtered, and King Jehu slew the entire household of wicked King, even close friends of his family. The Lord, however, was warning of something greater than that which has passed with Jezebel and Ahab; it was the warning that Messiah gave during His earthly ministry concerning Jerusalem being destroyed a second time, the morning of the next millennial day.
.
During the ministry of the Messiah, He and John the Baptist repeatedly warned Jerusalem of encroaching destruction. Jezebel was notorious for murdering the true prophets of God in exaltation of her pagan priesthood; she corrupted the chosen priesthood and placed the false prophets of Baal and Asherah (the so-called “Queen of Heaven”) in key positions throughout Israel. This mirrors Jerusalem which was also called adulterous to God by the prophets- a city which had killed many of the prophets and priests, whose priests had gone far astray from keeping the Law in truth (see Mal.; Matt. 23:37-38). Christ foretold that the city would be conquered within a generation (40 years) because of the corruption of the priesthood that He was sent to cleanse. (NB: And as prophesied, the Jerusalem priesthood, complicit with Roman authority, had the Messiah crucified.)
In 70 A.D. (or 68 C.E. to Jews), the beginning of the very next millennial day, the Roman Beast massacred the people of Jerusalem, ravished the city, and destroyed the Temple, with only a small group of Christian Jews and adherent Gentiles observing the Lord’s warnings and escaping to Pella of the Jordan Valley. Christ had warned that the Romans would “build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.” Thus, the Temple was destroyed and the city completely shattered within a century after its destruction. This prophecy, recorded in the 19th chapter of Luke, was confirmed by the writings of the 1st century Jewish historian, Josephus, who under empirical commission detailed the horrors inflicted upon Jerusalem, Jews, and the Temple by Rome. (See Antiquity of the Jews.)
.
The Revelation prophecy against Jezebel was something that would show the early churches that YHVH God is not a respecter of persons, with the Spirit saying, “I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the reigns and hearts. And I will give every one of you according to your works.”
.
The Spirit teaches with comparative concepts, stories, and phrasing. Things of the past are mirrored and serve as foreshadowings and similitudes of historical events that parallel and follow. We compare Scripture with Scripture and spiritual things with spiritual things, as written by the Pharisee Paul. Hence, consider how Prophet Jeremiah’s trouble with the priestly city of Anathoth mirrors and foreshadows the Messiah and Jerusalem at the time of His ministry:
. 
Lamb PDI
Lamb PDI

But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter… [them of the priestly city] saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruits thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living [from history], that his name be no more remembered [blotted out]. But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that trieth the reigns and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I revealed my cause. Therefore thus saith the LORD [YHVH] of the men [priests] of Anathoth, that seek thy life, saying, Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that thou die not by our hand: Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine: and there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, even the year of their visitation.’ (Jer. 11:19-23) KJV; intrpl. & emp. mine

Jeremiah prayed against Anathoth for rejecting his testimony and because the priests sought to slay him. Then Elohim YHVH heard His prophet and later destroyed the entire priestly city. But Christ, on the other hand, wept over Jerusalem’s coming destruction- a city that did not know the time of her visitation- even though some among the priests sought His life. Messiah asked that Lord YHVH to forgive them, for they did not comprehend what they were doing. In short, the new assemblies learned that God brings judgment upon all, be they priestly cities, Jerusalem, Rome, Jews, Christians, peasants, priests, and nobles alike. He is not a respecter of persons. God allowed Jerusalem, like Jezebel, to be violently cast down and later renamed by the Romans, for murdering the prophets of God and for their rabbis exalting another man as their messiah. 
.
Now, all the assemblies know that He searches the hearts rather than giving favor for the sake of the flesh. And if he demands a blessing rather than a curse, giving mercy, it is not something of boast for any flesh, but for the works He has done through a people for His own witness and well-earned glory. Ultimately, there is no escape from judgment except through confession of faith in the sacrificial Lamb of God, with prayerful repentance.
  
The Spirit left promises to those in the fourth assembly who did not “know the depths of Satan,” who kept not the false teachings that are against His true prophets: He would put on them no other burdens. As Jesus told His people during His ministry, “Learn of Me…find rest for your souls…My burden is light.” This is important because God is a liberator of people, seeking righteousness from within, not for them to carry additional, severe burdens and false doctrines, laid upon the naïve by those who seek righteousness from without, ever adding precepts and ponderings with gnostic books and volumes of rabbinical literature, with mystical compilations of nonsense, adding to the letter of the Law with mistaken ideas and dark observations. God seeks those who ponder over the depths of His Word.  
.
And this is a small burden: to learn of the Lord before being so zealous in religious doctrines, before counting the prophets of God as deceivers. The words of the prophets are like fire, and they are often rejected in their times by religious leaders, but the Lord has placed their messages above priests, ministers, rabbis, and teachers, because they bring His words to the world despite the hatred which comes upon them. God’s people are told not to act hastily but to test all things. The people study many books in search for Divine revelations, but the prophets study the Word. Many other books provide historical insight, but no other book is Divine or perfectly orchestrated by God.
.
Revelation Churches Mystery“But he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations- ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’- as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Rev. 2:26-29) NKJV
.
Who is the Lord speaking to with these promises to the 4th millennium assembly? Psalms, Chapter 2, clearly shows that the Messiah is the One who comes to rule with a “rod of iron.” Revelation, Chapter 22, makes it clear that the Messiah is the “bright and morning Star.” These things show the placement of Messiah’s work within the 4th day.
.
Nevertheless, the Lord also told His twelve apostles of the 4th day that they would reign with Him on their twelve thrones (Matt. 19:27-28), among others who will reign with the Great King when He arrives.
.
This concludes the messages under the letter Beth, with the ascension of the Holy One who was born in Bethlehem. Although there are three more houses in the seven millennial days, God made a distinction with divided chapters for the final assemblies (i.e., the last days of the millennial week). With the cross, He placed a marker in time for the beginning of the “Church Age” and the gathering of the elect into the commonwealth of Israel. 
.
Thus far the Aleph-Bet message reads: First, leaders learn/teach that 1 becomes 1,000 for the Household….. Now we must look to the letter Gimel, when the burden carriers went into the world with the Gospel of Salvation.
