“Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest [Sabbath] for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matt. 11:29-30) NKJV; intrpl. mine

This article on the third chapter of Revelation continues where the book’s Chapter 2 left-off, which is expounding upon the seven millennial assemblies (or churches) that form a temple of seven heavensthe spiritual Temple of Wisdom. Chapter 2 covers the first four assemblies with biblical highlights of the first four millennial days, with 4,000 years complete at the sacrifice of the Lamb of God.
.
The last three millennial days- revealed as Divine, millennial assemblies in this chapter- are often termed “the last days” and “the end of days” (i.e., covering the last three days of the heavenly week). For many believers, however, this end of days began a new period of time in God’s panoramic plan of redemption: an age for bringing in many new believers with the Gospel (i.e., good news) sent into the world, after the resurrection and ascension of the Messiah.

The Revelation chapter division (in Christ’s messages for the seven enigmatic assemblies) was not inserted without Divine inspiration and reason, rather it came by the Holy Spirit disclosing a distinctive dividing of time, before and after the cross. The Spirit of God caused the division to express a new age in which the apostles of Christ would carry the burden and yoke of Hebrew Christianity into the pagan Roman world of the 1st century A.D., offering the benefits of eternal salvation that are granted believers of the Gospel. A special benefit of Divine forgiveness and renewal was to be perceived from the cross, with the cross standing-out like a tall tree that towers over all others, as the height of a forest.

The prophets of Israel often called their testimonies “the burden of the Elohim YHVH,” so the third chapter of Revelation falling under the letter Gimel- completing the seven houses with the final three in the Ekkelsia– suggests that the Testimony of Christ would be carried into all of the world for the final, three millennial days in the heavenly week.

The division in the seven houses was also inspired to help Bible readers discern specific parables, signs, messianic types, and foreshadowings similitudes that directly concern the times from the cross onward, with the cross serving as a sort of marker at 4,000 years. These are third-day signs of the times that are dispersed throughout Scriptures- those that directly testify to the placement of Messiah in the moedim (appointed times of God).
.
When the apostles wrote of the“last days,” they did not write in ignorance but under Divine inspiration, that Scripture believers might begin to discern the signs of the times relating to the millennial week and the three days from the Lamb’s sacrifice to the third day promises of the Kingdom. They believed, as did many Jews of the time, that a week of millennial days would be fulfilled from Adam.
.   
As for the progression of the Word of God through time, which was compared to waters growing deeper and deeper in the last chapter, it can be seen in the messengers of the seven churches. Adam shows God’s Word to the elect couple; Noah shows the Word given to the elect family; Moses shows the Word given to the elect tribes; Jesus shows the Word given to the elect nation; Peter shows the Word given to the elect of the World with the early Ekklesia; Elijah shows the Word given to restore the unity of all these for the coming of our Messiah and Great King, for the completion of the ingathered harvest at the Great Sabbath of YHVH- with elect individuals of the elect tribes of the elect nation, which will have a global dominion in a world which the God of Heaven and Earth has elected to save. This, with Messiah as the seventh, is our Menorah of light for the seven millennial days, shining the light on all of Israel. These are the seven thunderous messages. These things are unsealed for those who are called to hear.
.
As already mentioned, the waters of the Word were too deep at 4,000 years for the prophets and priests who sought to obtain righteousness by perfectly keeping the precepts and commandments of the Law. As Ezekiel was shown by the Lord 4,000 cubits of healing waters, they simply could not be kept with the advancing times and changes in their national culture. All of the Law (Torah) serve as shadows of Messiah, centered on the national harvests of an ancient, agricultural people. So the progression of the Word was like rising waters that needed to be rightly divided in the New Covenant of a lighter burden, that all may be able to obtain righteousness by faith from our graceful God: from His Mercy Seat. And this lighter burden of Christianity is revealed in the strength of camels- as people who can travel through the spiritual wildernesses of the world for a long distance on but a little water of the Word. Thus, the Lord divided the deep waters at 4,000 years, like the 4,000 cubits for Prophet Ezekiel, for those who could put away worldly things and carry the burden of Christ in the path of salvation.
.
For at a time when the keepers of the Law should have helped ease the burdens by keeping the Spirit of the Law, they chose, rather, to increase the afflictions beyond the letter of Torah, adding to the traditions of oral laws, giving commandments under the guise of Torah, and adding burdensome precepts in which the people could not keep. Even then, with Jerusalem and the Temple destroyed in the first century of the Common Era, the rabbis did not stop adding things that they consider divine revelations- adding volumes of books, laws, and contradicting interpretations of the Word throughout the centuries. In the spirit of Egyptian taskmasters, they caused ordinary Jews to fear latching their sandals or walking too far on the Sabbaths, lest they break a commandment.
.
Hence, God, not being as an Egyptian Pharaoh but a righteous liberator, chose to divide the waters of affliction by grace. Then, those who kept the Law in Spirit and Truth could teach righteousness from within, not solely as the appearance of righteousness from deeds done without, as overlords seeking to be served and exalted in their public displays of religious pomp.

This is what rightly dividing of the waters of the Word is all about. The burdens of Egypt had grown too heavy to carry, so lambs were killed, and the twelve tribes- and foreigners joined with them- escaped through divided waters to meet the Lord on the third day, with the taskmasters of Egyptian law conquered by the Word coming down upon them. The burdens in the wilderness were too difficult to continue in forever, so the waters were divided by Joshua (Yehoshua) to bring Israelites out of the harsh wildernesses, under the Law of Moses, to the greater promises being fulfilled in their savior Joshua (Yehoshua). The burden of the Word of God became too heavy for Elijah and he despaired even to live, so the Lord divided the waters of the Word, and he crossed over to rest in his life with the Lord, leaving the burden of ministry to Prophet Elisha.

God always provided a way to Passover, to leave the heavy yoke behind for the redemption granted from His throne of grace. This was to show that those who are refined by the Lord YHVH do not enter His rest by keeping the harsh burdens of the ever-increasing laws and regulations, but God refines them by the inward Law and granting them redemption at His throne of grace. The Law is the Holy Spirit working us towards His righteousness when honored from within by the believer, but Salvation comes from God alone. All have fallen short, as Prophet Isaiah wrote, under the burdens of God’s righteous Law, especially with additions to the laws by religious men seeking fame and religious authority, whereas God provided us a greater Passover by grace, given by the One who perfectly kept the Torah in truth.  

Thus, if the Lord saves all of Israel, it is not because of the election of the flesh, but because they carried the heaviest burden of the Law before grace was given to the nations; and most Jews do not perceive (see Rom. 11) the lighter burden and fulfillment of the Law in Yeshua Mashiach. Nor do they have the knowledge of the ancient prophets and scribes to know that the laws of the Torah were correlated with the culture available in ancient days, all to serve as witnessing shadows of the fulfillment of God’s grace- something which we have obtained through the suffering of Messiah as we await His glories to come. The Lord blinded them to their Messiah so that the good news would first go out into the world, not remaining a national religion of an increasingly obsolete agricultural system of justice; and by His wisdom He saved Jews under the shadows of the Law until the Divine veil is removed and they, too, are tested on their faith in Lord our Messiah’s sacrifice.
. 
Yet the Jews, by the mystery of the nature God has worked in them for His own purposes, when the blindness is removed, I suspect will prove more faithful unto Messiah, as a whole, than many worldly Gentiles have. This I suspect by observing them and their ways, for they naturally keep things which confess Yeshua with great zeal, even when not knowing the fuller meanings of the things they keep- not just in the holy days but in certain traditions (especially on Passover). I watched their children singing for the Messiah, and the same Divine light abode on them as Christian children singing unto Christ, being most holy. For this reason, perhaps a sort of Divine guidance is yet within some of them; God has sustained this family out of the world to have the glory of the Messiah born among them, and the Gospel revealed to them at the end of days.
(NB: When I speak of the faithfulness and glory to come to believing Jews, I do not speak of the ultra-liberal and anti-Israel/anti-God element of progressive Judaism in the West and elsewhere in the world; I speak of true Jews who love Israel and God, wherever they are found, keeping oracles of their ancient fathers in zealous consistency. I do not speak of secular Jews, who believe that their judgments and compassion exceed that of God, for they are no better than atheists of Gentiles, but of those who will repent and trust in the Lord.)
.
All these things being understood, how harshly do you, the reader, believe God will judge many of today’s straying churches of Christianity, with homosexual ministers and those who distort the Scriptures, seeing that the Gentile world was given a much lighter load than those who have long been under the shadows of the Law? If God punished the Hebrews severely in their breaking of the heavy burdens, which their rabbis added needlessly to, what will He do to careless believers who have so lightly esteemed the salvation we have in the lighter burden of Jesus Christ? The answer is written in the words of Paul, whom most Christians adore and trust:
.
And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as in the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. For if we willfully sin after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The LORD will judge His people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. But recall the former days in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings. (Heb. 10:24-32) NKJV

With these things being evident today, why do so many Christians believe we will not be judged in the world? We know the history of Jews and their suffering for keeping their ancient faith as a chosen people; yet, with judgment being collectively pronounced on Christianity today, as the Lord has warned (that we might be refined in tribulations), we find indifferent Christians who only partake of the Scriptures that they can utilize to justify their excessive living and an escape with a rapture. When the Lord gives us an escape, is it not by His warning for us to escape wicked Babylonian doctrine during these days of increasing persecution of Christians?

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Matt. 19:23-24) NKJV

PETER AND THE PRIESTLY PALACE

Humble House of Scarlet Priests, PDI
Humble? House of Scarlet Priests, PDI

The fifth assembly of Revelation was located at Sardis, a Jewish city of Lydia that was in ancient times famous throughout the world for its beauty, great sophistication, and legendary treasures. Today, there is but a poor, little village near the ruins of where it had once stood proud.

Sardis was often conquered, notably by Alexander the Great, and, purportedly, it had once been destroyed by an earthquake (when the Messiah was about twenty years of age). When rebuilt, it became the home of the fifth house of the seven assemblies of Revelation– one that competed with a great Jewish synagogue and Roman temple for Jewish attendants and Gentiles converts.

This church is a sign of the glorious, humble beginning and spiritual fall of the Ekklesia in the fifth millennial day- their mixing of Jewish Christianity with Roman paganism and political worldliness. Sardis derives its name from sardine stones, which, in Scripture, is the similitude of God as the great Rock upon His throne (see Rev. 4:3). Sardis means escape, which was an appropriate name for a city that had been conquered so often, and it is likewise fitting for the biblical call to escape religious Babylon.

The message to the Sardis congregation summarizes the plight of the Church of Rome now at Vatican City, which began in home congregations and synagogues by Peter, Paul, and other early believers of the 1st century (although the Christian faith was at first centered on “James the Just” in Jerusalem). From a humble, unworldly beginning to many centuries of political tyranny and doctrinal distortions, and later Jesuit evils of papal existentialism, the Roman Bishopric has progressively worsened over its long age.
.
Today, it still has treasures of ancient art, golden crowns, and priceless, jeweled relics of silver and gold that make the Church of Rome a rich wonder to behold, with fame comparable to that of the ancient treasures of Sardis; yet the glory is deceptive. Thus, the ancient city of Sardis is a perfect place for illustrating the first millennium of the Christian faith and its fall from Divine glory in meekness and truth to that of a worldly and tyrannical institution.

And like the throne of God being described as a sardine stone, the Roman Catholic (i.e., universal) Church has long held that their church is the “Seat of Peter” and even the “Throne of God” on Earth, where the so-called “Vicar of Christ” sits in the seat of our Lord, with Jesus Christ only ruling from Heaven. This is how they understand their papal successors, counting Apostle Peter as their first pope.

(Questions: Did humble Peter exalt himself in this way when leading the apostles of the assemblies? Did Peter, who would not allow anyone to bow before him, erect himself an exalted throne, expressing some hierarchy among the faithful? Would he have dared extend his hand for his ring to be kissed by those who bow, as the Bishops of Rome have done for centuries? Would he consider himself a hierarchal head and not Christ alone as the Head of His Body of Believers?)

The Lord introduced Himself to the fifth millennial assembly as “He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars.” This mirrors the introduction of the Lord in His message to Adam and Eve in the Garden of God. Simply put, the fullness of the Lord’s Spirit returned at the beginning of this fifth millennium during Pentecost (Shavuot), just as the fullness of His Holy Spirit was in the world in the beginning before He began taking His candles of enlightenment away (see Acts 2:1-4). In other words, we find a new spiritual beginning after the cross, given to the Ekklesia.
.  
The first millennium of the Ekklesia, which first consisted of households and synagogue assemblies, reveals a people who began gloriously in the Spirit and then, after the first two centuries, quickly faded with their mingling of Roman paganism and Greek philosophy with the Gospel of Christ. For this reason, the Spirit told them, “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.” 
.
Consider where the Spirit of God is seen today. In Protestant and latter churches, the people are usually seen as lively and fired-up over the Word of God; some dance as David did in the presence of the Lord; deep songs of glory and depth of Spirit are often perceived among worshiping believers, even among those who are largely ignorant of Scriptures. Most Catholics are merely practicing their religion, and they do not have personal relationships with God. Most have not heard from Him, for they are mere religionists, thinking practice in the church can save them.

Now look at the somber processions of the Catholic masses: Golden chalices and rich implements are put on display as the traditional processions are done in repetitive steps time after time, while many in their pews must pull themselves together with discipline and resolve to simply stay awake until mass is over. The first millennium of the Roman-based assembly quickly became what the Lord was replacing: the dead traditions of regulated steps in religious procedures, where every detail was orchestrated to show the appearance of glory and mystery, but the fire of the Spirit was not there. These things are at first glorious to the natural eyes, even as an elaborate funeral of a deceased royal, but it is performed more unto a God supposed far away in Heaven rather than with experiential knowledge of the living God within each one of us who believes.

The Groom returns soon, and they really need to learn the inspired Word and awaken. The Lord is doing something now in which Catholics do not know and cannot know without the Holy Spirit. This work is not done through the Bishop of Rome. Catholics must awaken before they miss it, and the door of the bridal chamber is shut. They boast of Christ’s name and long history, claiming universal election and being the only true church of the Lord, yet they fall far short of the glory that is being revealed to the elect throughout the nations in our times. Their masses are asleep to Divine truths and should awaken as the thief comes upon them. The church which is worshiped above God will become a heap of ruins- exposed as a fraudulent religion in doctrinal disarray. But the true Church, that is not given to deception with A-Millennial and Post-Millennial eschatology, will escape Babylon, as a Temple of living stones for the Spirit to dwell in.
.
In the beginning of the Church Age, the Lord called His people to be fruitful and multiply, bringing the Gospel to the world (cf. Mark 16:1; Luke 24:47). This was the glorious beginning and true richness of the Spirit. Great miracles accompanied the faith of uncounted martyrs during the 1st and 2nd century Ekklesia, even into the corrupted 3rd century. The New Covenant of good news, epistles, and Revelation of Messiah Yeshua were written during the beginning of this millennial day, with spiritual power and the fullness of the Spirit bringing Gentiles to the light of scriptural truths. Indeed, most Christians still look back to the beginning of the apostolic faith for our examples.
.
Then the Roman and Constantinople leaders, along with the bishops of other parishes, began to sever their Jewish roots, replacing them with the root of anti-Semitism; and the spiritual richness and true glory of the tree began to wither like fading leaves falling in the harshest days of late Fall. The richer they became, the poorer they grew. The Gentile olive tree which was grafted into the Jewish olive tree chose to separate, not understanding that the faith of Gentiles is tied-into the glorious roots of the faith of Hebrews. Without the roots we were grafted into, the wild branches die, and the fruits of the Spirit fall away until they no longer form at all.
.
Is this spiritual life and truth not evident in the liveliness of the churches which exalt the Hebrews, the Scriptures as most holy from the Divine, and the works of the ancients, rather than in the universal church which has been known to curse Jews under their breath and still seeks to replace the promises of the coming Kingdom?
.
It is here that we are able to discern the Spirit’s message to the so-called Church of Peter, saying, “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent.” emp. mine

The 1st century Ekklesia consisted of Hebrew-rooted faithful assemblies, led by many well-versed Jewish apostles like Peter and Paul (a.k.a Kefa and Saul). They attended synagogue and they knew their Tanakh or Septuagint (Hebrew and Greek Old Testaments). They kept with the roots, and they approved many oracles that were first delivered unto them. They had the foundation of the Divine Word to endure refinement and the greatest of persecutions, both from the Roman world and from fellow Jews. And the more they suffered, the more they rejoiced in the Lord, counting themselves rich in Holy Spirit even while poor in worldly goods. They were small in number but large in works and faith.

Like the first age with Adam, when the Lord reminded them to do their first works, to return to the beginning, here we see the Lord telling the dying church of Roman Catholicism, and bishops spread throughout the world, to remember how they first obtained the faith when they heard the Gospel. What does this mean but that they would spiritually wither away if they chose their own traditions and ways over the Scriptures?
.
Now look at the Roman Catholic Church and how she continuously criticizes her Protestant daughter-churches that broke away from their mother- calling for the daughters to “come home.” Is this not the height of all hypocrisy: that she calls the daughters home while she has historically hated her own Hebrew parents and the origin of her faith- the Jewish faith she was spawned from? She has not repented since the beginning, yet she calls the Protestant daughters to come home to her? Now look at the Roman Catholic Church, who does as she taught her daughters to do, which is to count the riches of the world as the blessing of God; to count the numbers of her adherents as the movement of the Spirit. Do Muslims of the False Prophet Mohammad not have over a billion followers? Look what she has taught her daughters: to replace the promises to Israel with promises to themselves, and to spiritualize away the prophecies of God, making void the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Most of the appointed holy days- the moedim- are no longer kept nor understood, and she created her own religious holidays, twisting the Divine symbolism.
.
So the Christian faith went to the persecuting Gentiles, and Emperor Constantine came along and saved them from further persecution in the Roman world. Would it not have been better to suffer in growth and seek purity from within rather than to pacify the pagan masses by mixing the things of God with the loathsome practices of the Devil’s deceptions? Yet I know that God’s wisdom is greater than my own, and He has allowed what He has allowed to accomplish His own objectives. Nonetheless, the tainted churches were never meant to be the permanent home of the truly faithful, and this I know from Scriptures. Jerusalem will be the throne of God when Messiah comes.

More Priestly Prestige, PDI

What is her excuse now, now that the number of pagans has for many centuries been nothing to fear? Is this the Gospel that the Lord called for- that pagan Rome become Christian and Christianity become Rome?

Look how many holy days of the Scriptures have been diminished or forgotten, even celebrated with traditions from pagan cultures. The glory of Passover has been reduced to show and wrongly kept as pagan Easter- spring fertility celebration. Look at Halloween, where the practices of the pagan festival are kept to this day. And is there a reason why the Roman Church has not returned to keeping the holy Sabbaths of God, which Constantine changed in the bishoprics to separate Gentile believers from worshipping with Jews whom he despised, other than to boast of authority in altering the things of God?

Why has the Roman Church never, with almost two millennia to do so, purified itself for a pure doctrine and untainted faith, or kept the Scriptures in righteousness? Why has the R.C.C. placed her traditions and “authority” above the sacred Scriptures? Is there any hope left for such a tainted and rebellious institution? They make their own traditions- often conflicting Scripture- equal with God’s Word, and yet they do not expect the Divine judgments that are about to come upon them. Has there ever been a blinder people, so errant from the roots of their faith, yet still counting their historically-corrupt institution as something holy?

Personally, I do not care what practices the Church of Rome keeps, nor those of her Protestant daughters. I have no personal fire in me against a religion so far away from my concerns. It is the Lord who cares for the Church of Peter, who says, “Whom the Lord loves He corrects.” It is the Lord who calls for an escape when correction is not heeded. Of my own, I could not care less if the church is exalted to the stars or brought down to Sheol. In fact, it is far from me to care what holidays the Catholics or the Eastern Church or Protestants keep, but the Spirit cares because the people are being robbed of the mysteries and treasures of the true moedim of the Lord, even kept in the darkness of ignorance and robbed of a future and inheritance in the coming Kingdom. When traditions, be they of Jew or Christian, trespass His Word, He loathes them, and instead of the glory they think they have, there is shame from above with judgment brewing. God will purge the Roman Catholic Church, her sister, and her daughters, then take from them only that which He determines worthy.
.
The doctrines of the churches should have gone back to their original works, as was in the beginning, come hell or high water, but now the Lord only calls for an escape of His children out of Babylon; she can no longer be cured of her disease. The sickness runs too deep; the plague has taken hold of the marrow of the bones. In her old age, she has lost her spiritual vitality and love for the Truth, and she can no longer hide the soar infections of her history.
.
God will have His way and out-last their every rebellion. The churches will no longer glorify themselves as if they have some Divine right, but those who come out will glorify the Lord and His true purposes. The age of the cultic churches comes to a close, but not a peaceful close of honor; rather, it shall be one of harsh judgment and shame of trespasses. They have polluted the Laws and the writings of the Prophets with their secret societies, venomous politics, and global scheming and injustices, and in all these long years they have not once turned back to how the assemblies were at their origin: to exalt the truths of God’s Word. Even those who came out of her, who in their weakness tried to reform her, she burned at the stakes and took their possessions.

Augustine, whom the Church of Rome loves, is an example of the fall of the doctrine first received. He at first believed in the seven millennial days, with the Messiah coming literally to reign on His throne on the seventh day. (NB: This was a common patristic teaching in the early Church, as evident in the Epistle of Barnabas.) Then he altered his beliefs to a view that the Roman Catholic Church holds to this very day: that the Church is currently in the reign of the Messiah, and the millennium of the Messiah is an unrestricted, figurative period of time in which the priests bring the world into subjection, ruling with a rod of iron at every opportune time in her brutal history.

The wisdom and exaltation of the Catholic Church has trespassed upon the truths of God, seeking a place above the Word which is only the Lord’s.

Because of these two doctrines, A-Millennialism and Post-Millennialism, much of the Church of Rome can no longer discern the “signs of the times.” They no longer have any urgency in watching for the coming of the Lord Messiah. The prophecies are rejected, twisted, hardly regarded, or unknown by most of them. Because of these things, the Lord told the Roman Church, “Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.”
.
If the Lord came back today, the Roman Catholic Church would be the most confounded and surprised of all Christian faiths. Nor does the Rome-based assembly comprehend what works the Lord is doing in the world to prepare for His coming reign. Why is this institution so blind, prideful, and lost to all truth? It boggles my mind that an institution claiming Christ and the Word, being over a billion strong, can be so lost in vain glory and ignorant to the marvelous truths of our God.
.
“But know this, that if the good man of the house [Church] had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat [adult Scripture] in due season [end times]? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find him so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants [other Christians called “heretics”], and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of the teeth.”- Yeshua Mashiach (Mat. 24:43-51) KJV; intrpl. mine
.
Those who have not looked into the history of the Roman Church must ask themselves: ‘Did the Catholic Church really torture and kill millions of people, of fellow Christians whom they deemed heretics and apostates for not agreeing with the Roman Church on her every precept? Did not the followers of the Church also torture, kill, and expel the Jewish predecessors of the faith- those who would not convert to Roman Catholicism, as reported in several historical archives? Did they humbly feed the masses the Word, or did they take stately power to crush the common people into serfs as they reigned drunkenly on the “Lord’s throne”? With their power, and with the confiscated riches taken from those put to the stakes, were they indeed just and righteous? Did they lead the people in true biblical doctrines, or did they promote the bowing of their masses to lifeless sculptures and church authorities? Did they keep with the truths of Scripture, or did they claim authority to place their traditions above the Word of God? Have or have they not reigned with cruel instruments until recent Protestant times, when much of their power was taken away?’
.
These questions are not too difficult to answer, and even today, with the Lord at the doors of the Sabbath Kingdom, they still do not feed the sheep the truths of His coming. They still discount the Word and worship their church.
.   
Will the Lord have more mercy on the churches that moved into pagan temples and mixed the messianic faith with lingering traits of pagan practices than He had on the Holy Temple and the Jews, whose Temple and worship were designed after the pattern of the Temple in Heaven? Will He pardon the elect of Gentiles who did more evil than the Jewish elect, whom He scattered into the cruel nations of the Diaspora after destroying His beloved Temple and city? The question becomes: ‘What will Peter, the 112th, do?’ Will he take off his glory and repent in ashes and tears for the long and perverse history of the Roman Church? Or, will he continue on in scheming with the nations and pushing the U.N. global agenda? Will he cast off his own glorious riches or do as the “popes” have historically done: seek to control the wealth of everyone else?

Peculiar Artist Perception of Jesus at Papal Throne, PDI
Peculiar Artist Perspective of Jesus at Papal Throne, PDI

This I know: Christ called Peter “Satan” when Peter’s thoughts were on the world rather than things of God. Peter wanted to forego the sufferings of Christ so that Christ could reign on Earth right away, and him reign with the King. And this I also know: After denying Christ three times as His body suffered, the rooster crowed a second time in his hearing and he heard, reminding him that it had been prophesied that he would forsake Him. Then he repented from watching from a distance and returned to strengthen the brothers and sisters of the Lord. Peter, who had fallen into such shame, even cursing and denying the Messiah he followed, later repented and gave his life for the true Gospel of God. Thus, will this rebellious religion follow in his steps? Or, will they seek to save themselves from the beastly empire at the cost of their souls?

Consider the foreshadowing story of King Belshazzar of ancient Babylon: The empire had destroyed the Temple of the our Elohim YHVH and gained the people of God, whom they carried into captivity along with the holy Temple vessels, articles, and implements of God’s priesthood. Babylon had destroyed Jerusalem, the holy City of David, and thereafter they rejoiced in the victory that they had over the people of God. Then, at the completion of the appointed time, the new king and his royal host- his 1,000 (his living millennium)- were found drinking unworthily of the Lord’s Temple cups. They raised the gold and silver chalices and drank their sacramental wine in praises to their idols and statues of gold, silver, bronze, iron, wood, and stone. But in the same hour of their celebration, rejoicing before the world with their one thousand, the king saw the writing of the finger of God on the wall, opposite of the lampstand, which is figuratively His Spirit (Menorah), and the king quaked in fear from what was written. In one hour, judgment came, and there was no place to escape for the Babylonians.
.   
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN! Mene: God has numbered your days and finished it, declaring it twice to you; Tekel: You have been weighed in the balances and are found wanting; Peres: Your kingdom has been divided, given to the False Prophet and the Beast until the Lord comes and takes back all which belongs to Him. 
.
Your priests have cast down the people of the Lord to the ground as a harlot, and you have accused the heretics and apostates and Judaizers and Judases of unfaithfulness, and done so in the presence of Almighty God. To you the Lord has looked down from Heaven and remembered; the Lord has stooped down to the ground where you have cast her, and with His finger He has written this proclamation in the dirt of the Earth to confront your self-righteousness. He has divided you against yourselves because your own history is found wanting of righteousness. Your priesthood and house is divided. You have cast the first stone, counting yourselves without sins via your confessions, and now the writing is written on the wall by the Holy Spirit. Eye for an eye, foot for a foot, and stone for a stone, and these things will surely come to pass in their appointed time. She whom you have cast down will be lifted and redeemed as the Bride, even during the sorrows of her great tribulations. And you, you will be exposed as the Great Harlot of the faith, forsaking God for the nations. Not once did you repent and turn back to truths of God’s Word in all your long years. Now the Lord of Heaven and Earth has remembered and rises against you.

What did the king of Babylon then do after being warned by the prophet of God? “Eat, drink, and be merry” was the remedy. While the city was in a drunken state, the Persian army was busy cutting-off and fording away the waters of the Euphrates River, which was the defense of the city. Then Cyrus, as Josephus has reported, brought his troops in through knee-deep water, taking the kingdom by surprise; they were too busy carousing and exchanging worldly gifts to notice the troops in their midst. Though the king of Babylon had been forewarned, the city took no precautions and easily surrendered without the slightest resistance. The Persians came in like thieves and took the city and empire. The glory of Babylon was forever lost. The impenetrable city was cast down in shame, but the people of God were free to return to Zion.
.   
Likewise, the Roman Church has had a long history of drinking unworthily of the Lord’s cup, of being drunk on the wealth and power of the nations. Meanwhile, the enemy is outside of her gates, dividing and reducing their waters of the Word, sneaking into their midst by shallow doctrines, made a little shallow here and a little shallower there, until the waters of the Word can no longer support the fallen assembly. When the water is down to their knees, you know that 2,000 years are measured (see Ezek. 47:4), and the Lord releases the army of destruction to come in as a thief. Even now, hordes of the False Prophet flow in upon all that you have built, but you are too drunk on the world to perceive it. You are too lost in the world’s religion and what seems right in your own eyes.  
.
“Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.” (1 Cor. 11:27) KJV
.
The enemy cannot surprise us if we watch the waters of the Word. If we do not perceive the lowering of scriptural truth, we become vulnerable to deception and inaction. This is what has long been happening with their twisting of the prophecies in Catholicism, concerning the coming of the Kingdom of God at Israel when the Lord returns. The sacred glory of the Scriptures has been minimized and reduced like water, even as foolish religious traditions have been exalted and glorified as if divine. For a long time biblical truths and standards have been lowered. Now the great thunder and lightning of God will lighten upon you. Now judgment comes, and the papacy is no more.  
.  
Rome mirrored the actions of the Babylonians before them. They destroyed the Temple of God and Jerusalem, and soon after, because of the revolt of Simon ben Kosiba (a false Jewish messiah, C.E. 132-135), Rome exiled the remaining Jews from the Promised Land and scattered them in the Diaspora, demolishing what was left of Jerusalem. Before that, Rome had gained the implements of the Temple and the treasures of the city, notably the Temple Menorah which represents the Spirit of God. This is probably why Peter called the Church of Rome, “she who is in Babylon, elect together with you…” (1 Pet. 5:13); the similarities between what Babylon did on the 9th of Av and what the Romans did on the same date, centuries later, are remarkable. Both of these empires that reigned over Judah mirror each other in how they treated the Jews.

Arch of Titus, Temple of God Looted by Rome, PDI

To this day a monument entitled Arch of Titus is erected in Rome, commemorating the sacking of Jerusalem and destruction of the Holy Temple in A.D. 70, picturing the general’s soldiers carrying the thefts to pagan Rome. In the center of the stone scenery is the Holy Temple Menorah. Moreover, the treasures and oracles of God, even the sign of His Spirit, went to the Gentiles. And with these things ultimately comes accountability for how Rome and the rest of the Gentile believers have handled the things delivered into their hands by God.  

Those of the Babylonian Church should keep these things in mind and heed an escape. Babylon was destroyed, but God remembered His promises to His people and gathered them back from where they were scattered. The people returned to the Promised Land, and Jerusalem and the Temple were rebuilt, but the Lord repaid ancient Babylon for destroying His Temple and taking His possessions (cf. Jer. 50:28; 51:11). Likewise, the city and Church which have played a harlot controlling, riding the beastly empire, are already foretold to be trampled by “the Beast” she once rode, destroyed by fire; this is God’s vengeance for His Temple, the mistreatment of His people, and for their breaking of the everlasting covenant. (N.B. Covenants cut both ways, as the Lord showed the Hebrews; if the people are not faithful to it, the Lord is not obligated to it.) The plotting of the Antichrist will destroy the basilica and the city, and great persecution will come to the people of the Lord, but the faithful will hear and escape.
.
Despite all these negative pronouncements and warnings written to the first assemblies of the faith, which are centered upon the Roman Catholic Church, the Lord leaves promises of salvation to the faithful people of the church that began on the fifth millennial day:
.
“You have a few [Gk. oligos, small number of ] names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess [accept] his name before My Father and before his angels.” (Rev. 3:4-5) NKJV; intrpl. mine
.
Here we see that salvation and righteousness comes from the Lord, not by confession to a priest or by repetitiously saying Hail Mary chants or even by rubbing Rosary beads together. Mary cannot save, and the statues of saints cannot hear. We have but one Mediator, as Scriptures reveal, and we have all fallen short of the glory of God and need His redemption. The confession unto salvation is the Lord confessing His people to the only Holy Father of us all. We are to address no religious figure as “father,” as Christ commanded, and when we seek forgiveness of sins, we must go into a private closet or secret place by ourselves to confess before the Lord YHVH, not into a confessional closet with a fellow sinner such as a priest seated in darkness.
.
Here we also see a message of the Lord concerning His early apostles- those who actually walked with Him after His resurrection, spreading the Gospel on the morning of the fifth millennial day. And others who are faithful are assured that they will walk with Him in white at His coming on the glorious Sabbath morning. How many popes and priests of the Roman Church will walk with Messiah in white, I do not know, but the Lord does and calls it “a few.” 
. 
Consider this: Some of the kings of Judah were blotted-out or omitted from New Covenant passages (e.g., Ahaziah, Yoash, Amaziah), as evident in the Book of Matthew. These kings of Judah sat in substitution of the Lord YHVH at Jerusalem, which is called the “throne of God” (see 1 Chron. 29:23). Consider this: Five virgins did not make it in time to the marriage feast of the groom, symbolic of Christ. Neither exalted throne nor physical purity brings in the Bride of Christ. God may blot out commoners and kings and popes and peasants, judging justly, not as a respecter of men. The Lord explained that only a relatively small amount- or oligos– were counted worthy of walking with Him from among the 1st millennium of the Roman Catholic Church and bishop perishes, which includes the Eastern Orthodoxy; this should make us really consider how “many are called but few are chosen.” When it comes to the narrow path, the boast of a billion invokes no Divine favor, for broad is the way that leads to destruction.
.
The Roman Catholic Church has long claimed that they have the “Keys of the Kingdom” to Heaven, since Christ gave the keys to Peter. But do they truly? Do they have the Key of Knowledge, and can they release the prisoners of darkness with the Key of Death and Hades? Do they have the Key of Unity and teach that Messiah comes on the third day? Do they teach of His coming on the Sabbath with the Key of the House of David? No, the Roman Catholic Church has lost the Key of Knowledge and forsaken the coming Kingdom for their own worldly glory. They have demonized Jews for centuries and persecuted them alongside fellow Christians. They deny that Christ will return to reign from Jerusalem on Earth, and they have sought to close the door to heavenly truths that the Lord has opened. Nonetheless, their deception will not stand much longer, and the elect will receive all the keys to prepare.

ELIJAH AND THE WHOLE HOUSE OF DAVID
.
King David Over House of Israel, PDI
King David Over House of Israel, PDI

The 6th church Philadelphia means brotherly love and contains a hidden message to the 6th millennium from Adam. This is the millennium we are currently in during the update of this article, and we will be in it for almost two more weeks of years.

Perhaps it is for the readers of this age to determine why such an evil time- in the sixth millennial pillar of the Temple of Wisdom- is called brotherly love.

I can say that many churches have done great missionary works at the close of this millennium, such as the 700 Club and other Christian organizations providing food, education, medicine, shelter, and clothing to nations in need. Many governments of this age have also shared in goods, money, and manpower with nations in distress, providing economic and medical relief to help ease sufferings during natural catastrophes. Perhaps, the name comes in this compassion.

It is also common to hear Christians say, “I love you in Christ, brother,” and “I love her as a sister in the Lord.” As for Scripture, Messiah said, “There is no greater love than a man [or woman] laying down his life for his friends.” At the close of this millennium, more people than any previous millennium will have laid down their lives to save their families and friends.

The Lord introduced Himself to this millennial day as “He who is holy, He who is true…” Indeed, this is a fitting way to introduce Himself to believers at the end of this 6th day. Many former Christian nations have fallen away from the faith and into secular humanism, following the modern currents of political correctness rather than the things that the Lord says is correct and incorrect, holy or unholy. In an age where the nations and the churches seek to change the times and ways of God, some even calling the union of homosexuality “marriage” and positioning homosexuals over church pulpits, such as in the Episcopalian Church, the Lord reminds us that He is still holy and His words are still true. The fundamentals of the Lord do not change with the altering currents of any age; if He loathes something in one age, He still loathes it today. In an age where so many people openly blaspheme God, calling Him evil, if not altogether denying His existence, He introduces Himself as “true.” Abject materialism will fall away along with the progressive worldview, but God’s Word will again stand the test of time.
.
The Lord’s message, addressed to the close of this millennium, is not, however, to the world; we all know the evils of the world. The Lord’s message is primarily to remind His own people. He is still holy, and His Word is still true. The world has a short time to say whatever it is that they will about the Lord our Redeemer and His Word, but believers are called to remain faithful until the end. As Satan’s power grows stronger in preparation for his son (the “son of perdition“), all forms of evil will reach their height in this age, be they anti-Christianity, anti-Christ, anti-Semitism, anti-creationism, anti-Israel, anti-morality, or whatever “progressive” and/or religious force boasts against the holy people and works of God; all this is prophesied, but believers are to remain strong. Believers are to remain true.
.   
In the previous millennial days, the central works concerned Adam, Noah, Moses, Jesus, and Peter. The works of the 6th day are centered on Elijah, who prepares the way for the coming of the Lord. The works of Elijah, and glorious Moses with Him at a coming time in Jerusalem, are a work of restoration in the people and things of God. As the Messiah said, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things (see Matt. 17:11).” Just as the spirit of Elijah came to prepare willing Jews and Levites for His first coming, Elijah, as is evident in the last passage of Malachi, will appear to prepare the way for the Lord’s second coming.

The Lord continued to introduce Himself to the Philadelphia assembly as “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens.” The Key of David is a shortened form of the Key of the House of David, as evident by the passage that the Lord recalls from Isaiah. This association reveals that the key that unlocks an entrance into Israel- both physically and spiritually- has nothing to do with a religious institution or state powers. David was king over all of Israel. Israel is the House of David. The Lord has power to shut people out of the coming Kingdom and the power to let them in. The key is for the coming Kingdom of Messiah ben David, and it unlocks the door for the nation that will be united for the coming Holy Kingdom and Great Sabbath.

The Lord shut Jews out when He scattered them into the nations for around 1,800 years, during their Diaspora, leaving only a small remnant in the land. From the time that Rome destroyed Jerusalem and exiled them, until they returned to the Promised Land, Jews prayed for a return, saying, “Next year in the land of Israel” and “Next year in Jerusalem.” Yet they could not open what God had shut until He was ready to open the door for them. Also, Israel is a nation by Divine guidance and right, and it matters not what those who condemn them for it say, think, or do.

Open Door House of David, PDI
Open Door House of David, PDI

Nearing the end of this sixth millennium from Adam, the door was finally opened for the returning Jews in 1917, under the famous British mandate entitled the Balfour Proclamation. Jews began to enter through the national doorway, and though some of the nations murmured about so many Jews returning, no one could shut what the Lord had opened. The British later tried to close the door with the White Papers of 1930 and 1939, restricting Jewish immigration and their purchasing of land, but they ultimately failed to stop the great Hebrew influx. After WWII, the Jewish people, led by David Ben-Gurion, announced statehood in May 15, 1948, swinging the national door further open for Jewish refugees and displaced immigrants returning to their holy nation. And especially from the end of the war in 1945 to today, Jews have been returning from all over the world, fulfilling many prophecies of God about their return at the end of the age, to prepare them and others for the reign of Messiah.

Jews Making Aliyah- Return, PDI

Yet post-Holocaust sympathy for Jews, to have a safe homeland, has quickly faded since WWII, and today voices of opposition protest ever-louder about Jews returning to the Holy Land and rebuilding settlements. Much of the original sympathy was only a guise for exposed guilt, where at root festered hatred for Jews.

Now, under the guise of sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians, nations have turned back to their anti-Jewish ways. Even the Bishop of Rome and the U.N. has meddled in Jewish affairs to recognize a Palestinian state (Palestine being a name given for Israel by Rome for the Philistines, after expelling Jews). But the Lord has said, “No! I will bring My people back!” This is a door the nations cannot shut despite all their rage against Jews. And Zion is a still a beautiful, scriptural name for Jerusalem, despite what progressive Jews have done in world affairs, and despite propaganda being pushed about a Zionist conspiracy by surrounding Muslims and Muslim sympathizers, especially the hate being indoctrinated in Western progressive universities. 

Where was the sympathy of the nations for Israel when all the surrounding Muslim nations united together to destroy the Jews in 1948, in the very year of Israel’s rebirth? And where was their compassion when Jews fought for survival in 1967 in the Six Day War? Where were they in 1973? Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestinians, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Muslims from all over the Middle East have united and sought to push the Jewish people into the Mediterranean, but where was the sympathy, and where was the powers of the nations? Today a madman from Iran races toward nuclear weapons capability, promising to wipe Israel from the map, and who has stood to stop him during these years? Where were the compassionate nations, and how few were their voices, when the Nazi regime sought to exterminate the Jewish race? And how many of the nations shared German anti-Semitism as Jews were being fed en masse, year after year, to the socialists’ ovens?
.
And now so many of these indifferent and fearful nations have become outraged at Jews returning to the barren land that they had dreamed of, and prayed to return to, for almost two millenniums? Dare they tempt the Lord’s rage concerning this door that He promised to again open to them before they even left? And since the Lord has beautified the land in Jewish hands, as He also promised, do the nations still rage against the Lord’s work? Can they shut what God has opened? Can they stop Jewish settlements- neighborhoods- that the Lord works by His own Spirit?
.
And just as the nations cannot close the corporeal door of the House of David, no man or woman can close the spiritual door of the Kingdom of David, which is a door of Truth concerning the awaited King and Messiah. Many more Jews will learn of the suffering of the Messiah and the glories that will come in the Kingdom. The Key of the House of David is not only corporeal, but unlocks the faith of David in the coming Messiah:
.
“My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me? [fulfilled Mark 15:34 during crucifixion] But I am [as] a worm and no man; a reproach of men, and despised by the people [Isa. 53]. All those who see Me ridicule Me; they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, ‘He trusted in the LORD, let Him rescue Him [fulfilled Mark 15:29-32; Luke 23:35-37], since He delights in Him!’ But You took Me out of the womb; You made Me trust while on My mother’s breasts. I was cast upon You from birth. From My mother’s womb You have been My God [fulfilled Matt. 1:18-25]. Be not far from Me, for trouble is near; for there is none to help. Many bulls have surrounded Me; strong bulls from Bashan have encircled Me [Matt. 26:67-75]. They gape at Me with their mouths, like a raging and roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint [upper torso dislocation, known in crucifixions]; My heart is like wax [pericardial effusion/cardiac arrhythmia, known of crucifixions]; it has melted within Me [midst of Me bowels]. My strength is dried up like a potsherd [hypoglycemic shock, known of crucifixions], and My tongue clings to My jaws [dehydration, known of crucifixions]; You have brought me to the dust of death. For dogs [Roman pagans] have surrounded Me; the congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced [like lions fangs] My hands and feet [Matt. 27:35; Mark 15:24; Luke 23:33; John 19:18]; I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me. They divide My garments among them, and for My clothing they casts lots [gambling of Roman soldiers at crucifixions, John 19:23-24].” (Ps. 22:1, 6-18) NKJV; intrpl. mine
.   
David was never helplessly delivered to a mocking crowd with his bones stretched out of their joints, and he never had his clothes taken and gambled over, with his hands and feet pierced; neither was all of Israel crucified. But David was a prophet who was promised that the Messiah would come from his line. He had messianic visions that could hardly have been better described, especially considering that nailing victims to crosses was a latter Roman military invention. This was not poetic embellishment of his own sufferings but a description of an actual event of the One whom all would come to know as Messiah and Christos. More and more Jews are beginning to hear the words of the Lord and are identifying the Messiah through His appointed cross rather than honoring Scripture superficially and without true wisdom and knowledge.
.   
Before the Mishnah was spoken in parts and written, or the Talmuds were created in Babylon and Jerusalem, and before the messianic twisting of the Targum, the knowledgeable among Jewish prophets and the people knew that the Suffering Servant that was to be slain as a lamb would be the Messiah. This truth is easily perceived by writings of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Even many rabbis until our time have testified to the truth of Isaiah 53; I have read some of their writings and list but a few: Talmud Sanhedrin (98b); Rabbi Simeon Ben Jochai (2nd cen., Zohar); Targum Jonathan (4th cen.); (9th cen.); Pesiqta Rabbati (9th cen.); Rabbi Moses (11th cen.); Mosheh ben Maimon (12 cen.); Isaac ben Judah Abrabanel (15th cen.); Rabbi Moses Alschech (16th cen.). All these men, though not confessing Yeshua as their Mashiach, wrote admissions of passages that pertain to the Suffering Servant being Messiah.
.   
“Our righteous Messiah has departed from us. Horror has seized us and we have no one to justify us. He has borne our transgressions and the yoke of our iniquities, and is wounded because of our transgressions. He bore our sins upon His shoulders that we might find pardon for our iniquity. We shall be healed by His wounds, at that time when the Eternal will recreate Him a new creature. Oh bring Him up from Seir, that we may hear Him the second time.” (Rabbi Eleazar Kalir, 9th cen. Musaf Prayer)
.  
Keep in mind that such rabbis, counting various people to be their suffering messiah, from Moshe, Yehoshua, and Eliyahu on, often looked for a second coming of their messiahs and had no complaint of these people coming twice to accomplish messianic prophecies. They were never rejected as Jews- for what they believed- but honored, but Jews often reject Jews for accepting the sufferings of Yeshua as the true Messiah, and this comes via pride of religion more than any other reason posited.
.   
“For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I will tear [pluck away, be pulled apart as food] and go away; I will take [Him] away, and no one shall rescue. I will return again to My place [Heaven] till they acknowledge their offense. Then they will seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.” Come, and let us return to the LORD; for He has [been] torn, but He will heal us; He has [been] stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight. Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established [appointed] as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, like the LATTER AND FORMER rain to the earth.’ (Hos. 5:14-15; 6:1-3) NKJV; intrpl. & emp. mine 
.
Thus, if the appointed arrivals of the Lord are as two distinct seasons, how then does He only come once in Messiah? If Israel was given two mirroring months, which have moedim that witness to the Lord’s salvation, in Nisan and Tishri, why is the likeness of His redemption through Messiah considered to be one coming? Why does Prophet Isaiah say, when speaking of Messiah, “There shall be in that day a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner of the people; to Him shall the Gentiles pursue, and His resting place shall be glorious. And it will come to pass in that day that the Lord will move his Hand the second time to redeem [i.e., teach, verify, and raise His purchased ones for His recovery] the remnant of His people” who remain scattered? If there is only one coming of Messiah, why does the Lord reveal the Branch, which is the Messiah, to Prophet Zechariah as the joining of two offices, both as High Priest and Ruler of Jerusalem? If the Lord does not suffer first before becoming the Great King with His people at Jerusalem, why does He say in Zechariah that His people would mourn for piercing Him while speaking of the coming Kingdom?
.
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.” (Zech. 12:10) NKJV
.
Today the claim of many rabbis is that their coming Moshiach will be an ordinary man and not Divine, but this teaching was not what was taught among Jews in the ancient faith. Denying the divinity of the Messiah is a Diaspora invention to deny Christ.  
.
“Because a child shall be born to us and a Son is given to us and the government shall be upon His shoulders and He shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [literally, aviy ad, or “Father of Again”], the Prince of Peace.” (Is. 9:6) DSS, cap. & intrpl. mine
.
Why is it so hard to believe that God would first send the Messiah to cleanse the inner kingdoms of the spirits before exalting the outer flesh in national glory? How can God glorify a nation in flesh before righteousness is worked in spirit? Is God unjust to do such? Is this the reason that religious leaders despised him and erroneously led God’s nation away from the messianic truths professing Him in Scripture?
.
Yet when Jews recognize Messiah as a nation, the world will be shaken by the glory and rise of Divine power and righteousness. Then cries for deliverance from afflictions will be quickly heard, unlike the years that God did not hear cries in the centuries of cruel slaughter. History is a witness, for God is not dead nor deaf.
.
Even if the people became perfect in all their ways, except in understanding the mysterious signs of Scripture and accepting Messiah as God’s Salvation, the Lord YHVH would still fight until He prevails and they seek His identity. Jacob only prevailed with God from his own understanding, but God was the Victor because He did not want Jacob to let Him go; He wanted Jacob to seek His hidden name and a blessing for the nation; He wanted to wrestle with him until right before the dawning of the Sun of Righteousness in his heart.
.
The 483 years of Daniel’s prophecy cannot be given back for another messiah to go back in time to fulfill. Another temple will not be destroyed after another messiah is cut-off for the people. There is not another messiah who will be a “light to the Gentiles,” when billions of Gentiles have already received Him for almost 2,000 years. Neither can Jews count themselves as the light to the Gentiles if they believe Gentiles have corrupted Judaism with Christianity from the beginning. And if they say the light of truth has not gone out to the Gentiles from the Jews, they blaspheme against God’s prophecies in Scripture. Who else has been given from the Jews to “sprinkle many nations” with His blood? Is God the author of confusion, that He would send another Jew to sprinkle us with his sacrificial blood?
.   
Therefore thus says the Lord YHVH: “Behold, I lay in Zion a Stone for a foundation, a tried Stone, a precious Cornerstone, a sure foundation; whoever believes will not act hastily. Also I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plummet; the hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters will overflow the hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand; when the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it. As often as it goes out it will take you; for morning by morning it will pass over [two days], and by day and by night; it will be a terror just to understand the report.” For the bed is too short to stretch out on, and the covering so narrow that one cannot wrap himself in it. (Isa. 28: 16-20). intrpl. mine
.
But now the Lord is making an end to His terror. Now the hard waters of judgment are made soft for refreshment. Now the rabbis who join with Elijah will be awakened to praise at the coming of the Messiah, even as others will awaken to shame and everlasting contempt. Now the plummet line confesses the measurements of the deep waters in the well; these measurements are tried and true. 
.   
“Behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah- not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt [not according to the Law covenant], My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD.” (Jer. 31:31-32) NKJV; intrpl. mine
. 
“Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to the LORD, to serve Him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be His servants- everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and holds fast My covenant, even them will I bring to My holy mountain.” (Isa. 56:6-7) NKJV
.
And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious. It shall come to pass in that day that the LORD shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Assyria and Egypt, from Pathros and Cush, from Elam and Shinar, from Hamath and the islands of the seas. He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed from Judah [Jews/Levites] from the four corners of the earth. Also the envy of Ephraim [10 tribes of Israel] shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah [Judah/Levi/Benjamin] shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not harass Ephraim.” (Isa. 11:10-13) NKJV; intprl. mine
.
A gathering will come, with a wilderness doorway into the Sabbath Kingdom. This is an open door into the House of David- the Kingdom Israel. Doors are being opened not only for the corporeal Kingdom but the spiritual Kingdom, with hearts restored to the ancient faith.

“I know your works. See I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.” (Rev. 3:8) NKJV

At the closing of the 6th millennial assembly, there is an open door of opportunity to restore all things and for declaring the mysteries in preparation for the coming Great King. Rather than Jews offering an open door during their Passover, Elijah invites Jews and Christians into an open door of Messiah’s Passover meal. This is a meal of spiritual nourishment, set on the tables of believers’ hearts. This is a meal where mysteries are revealed- a great feast of Scripture for all believers.

Nonetheless, some Christians who call themselves spiritual Jews, while forsaking the fathers with replacement theology, will reject the table now being served. And some Jews will continue to reject spiritual Jews whom the Lord calls. Those of Gentiles and Jews who seek to prevent this union that God is bringing for the coming Kingdom and restored tribes will not receive inheritance with the Messiah. Some will be cast out as others are barred from entering. And when these things are fulfilled, all enemies of God’s elect will recognize His will and confess His Word.
.
“Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie- indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.” (Rev. 3:9) NKJV
.
At the end of this age, Moses and Elijah will gather Jewish believers and faithful Christians, who are being restored to the tribes of Israel, east of Jerusalem to await the coming of Messiah. They will be in tents, booths, campers, and shelters like the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). Some will hide in mountains and caves. The Lord ensures them during times of discouragement, mockery, and persecution from the nations, that they will have part in a glorified Jerusalem and not be put to shame.
.   
Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I will lift My hand in oath to the nations, and set up My standard for the peoples; they shall bring your [Zion’s] sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders; kings shall be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers; they shall bow down to you [Jerusalem]with their faces to the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD, for they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.” (Isa. 49:22-23) NKJV; intrpl. mine
.
In conclusion, there is a Sabbath Kingdom doorway that all people should seek to enter. Many are called but few are chosen, as the Lord has said.
.
“Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest [Sabbath], lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience [not acting accordingly]. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” (Heb. 4:11-13) NKJV; intrpl. mine
.
There will be a door of escape from the Year of Vengeance, when the Lord pours out His wrath. There will be a crown of life for those who persevere through the tribulations. This escape will become clear as the details of the years of the Apocalypse are given in upcoming articles on Revelation. For now I only feel compelled to affirm that the elect will be gathered in the wilderness east of Jerusalem, sealed by the Spirit at the appointed time and taught by the two witnesses. For those who are faithful, their pilgrimage and obedience during the time of Israel’s troubles will be remembered from year to year after Messiah comes.
.
And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles [Sukkot]. And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, on them there will be no rain…the punishment of all nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.” (Zech. 14:16, 17, 19) NKJV; intrpl, mine
.
National leaders will have to send dignitaries and representatives to Israel to keep Sukkot because it will honor those who gather in the wilderness for the Lord’s coming and Kingdom, completing the foreshadowing feast of the Old Covenant and Israel’s journey in the wilderness. Those who gather against all odds and tribulations will be given an annual memorial before all nations, because they will have overcame opposition from nations that seek to prevent their call to the marriage.
.
Those who will gather and fight against Jerusalem, and then refuse to repent, and choose not attend the yearly feast of Sukkot during the Great Sabbath, will have no rain; this is the curse of not listening when the Word is poured out by the appointed prophet. So the International Feast of Tabernacles will honor those who will come for the marriage of the Lamb, despite the tribulations that the world causes to prevent this gathering. They are blessed and enlightened as the chosen and faithful of God.
.  
Thus far in the Philadelphia assembly of the 6th millennium, one main theme is pictured as the highlight of the day. That theme is an open door into the national House of David, which in ancient times consisted of all twelve tribes of Israel. The Lord could have said that He opens the door to the House of Judah or to the House of Ephraim, but He said the “House of David.” The twelve tribes were divided into two nations, but the Lord points us to the restoration and unity of the entire nation, back to the beginning of the kingdom of David. The Spirit opened the door for Jews to return in this day, and Lord Messiah has the key to open the door for the remaining tribes of people who have lost their identity and are spread abroad. And this door He will open to those who keep His Word and answer His call, to those who have an equal inheritance through adoption.
.   
Finally, the Lord leaves promises to those who overcome during the Apocalypse at the end of this 6th millennium:
.
“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Rev. 3:12-13) NKJV
.
Remember that the Temple of Wisdom has seven carved-out pillars of seven millennial days, from which the whole Temple of God is assembled for the entrance of the elect. Being made into a pillar in the Temple at the Lord’s coming means that the inheriting Bride of Jerusalem will never again be moved or exiled from the land. The last pillar belongs to those who are given inheritance into the twelve glorious tribes, and the seventh pillar is the Great Sabbath. Thus, when God’s Tabernacle comes down; when New Jerusalem comes down; when the Temple comes down; when the Kingdom of Heaven comes down to be established on Earth as it is in spiritual Heaven, we understand that the spiritual things must come down to Earth and be interpreted for the truths of our world.
.
Writing the name of God and the city on the overcomers shows the sealing of the inheritance into the Great Sabbath. Further into the Book of Revelation, this sealing is seen in the likeness of 144,000 having the Father’s name written on their foreheads (see Rev. 14:1). All these things point to an imminent inheritance coming at the end of the sixth millennial day, when God’s name is written on the consciences of His elect. The doorway of this sealing is at the last year of the sixth millennium. And gathered with the 144,000, who serve as a sign of the times and boundary on the powers of erring nations, will be many people from all nations.
.
As for the new name of the Messiah, written in the consciences of His people, I do not know it and can hardly speculate; it is hidden from me what this means. He alone knows. In time it will be revealed to us all, as are all the mysteries that God has sewn into our world. If God would not reveal His hidden name to Israel, although Jacob wrestled with the Lord and diligently sought it, then it is doubtful that anyone else will know until God decides. Perhaps it will be like the unpronounced HaShem (the Name) YHVH among Jews. His name being “The Word of God” suggests that He alone fully knows the Word of God. Beyond that is mere speculation.

THE GREAT KING MESSIAH AND THE RIGHTEOUS SABBATH TEMPLE
.
Hidden Manna of Days in Moedim Paradigm, PDI
Hidden Manna of Days in Moedim Paradigm, IM

The seventh assembly of Revelation is Laodicea and means righteous people or just people. This is the millennium of the Great Sabbath of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

In this millennium, Israel will receive the national Yom Kippur (atonement) that their annual moed foreshadows (see Moedim Paradigm). During this millennium Israel will be cleansed from sins and transformed into a righteousness kingdom, with holy Jerusalem shining as the envy of the world. This millennium is the long awaited Day of YHVH that weekly Sabbath foreshadows, and all the people of the coming Kingdom of Heaven will be Laodicea– the just and righteous ones.

This is the 13th day from the beginning of Genesis, 10th in the paradigm for Israel, 7th since Adam, and 3rd since the sacrifice of the Lamb at the cross.

The first year of this millennium, c. 2029 A.D., (+/-4 m.o.e.) is the Year of Vengeance” of the Lord, when the seven vials of the Apocalypse are poured out and Israel is delivered from the armies of the world. The rest of the Day of the Lord brings in peace for His righteous people, where justice is restored on Earth and the elect who answer the call rest peacefully in His inheritance. Those who are sealed at the end of the 6th millennium will enter a marriage feast on this 1st year of the Day of the Lord, yet, again, the opposing nations will be submitted to the Lord during this year as His wrath is poured out after trumpet warnings, pictured as vials of His righteous indignation. His gathered people will be able to celebrate during this final year of the Apocalypse week because their persecutions will be ending, as they are saved out of them during the vengeance of the Lord. Other Christians, who do not accept the marriage invitation and forsake the Word and prophecies, will continue to suffer on the first Sabbath-millennium-year, both under the Beast and God’s recompense.
.   
The 1st millennial house and pillar of the Temple concerns Adam and The Fall; the 2nd concerns Noah and The Great Deluge; the 3rd concerns Moses and The Exodus; the 4th concerns Jesus and The Passion; the 5th concerns Peter and The Gospel; the 6th concerns Elijah and The Restoration; and the 7th concerns the Great King and The Day of the LORD in the Kingdom. Together these complete the Temple of Wisdom in Proverbs, which I also call the Temple of Divine Time. These are harbingers of the days and the thunderous voices of the little Book of Revelation, upheld and unsealed to the world. These are the star messengers of the Menorah of seven assemblies, lit by the Holy Spirit of God. This is the voice of God Almighty given over the ages of humankind, to us, and these are the truths that light the entire Temple.  
.
Thus, we see the progression of God’s work in redemption in these main pillars of the Temple of Wisdom: 1st, we acknowledge our fall in sin and return to our “first love,” God; 2nd, we are baptized in faith by the water of the Word, cutting away the old sinner to be born again; 3rd, we learn the Law of God as we journey towards the promises of the Kingdom; 4th, we look upon the sacrifice of the Messiah for salvation and atonement- the central Pillar; 5th, we share the Gospel with all others; 6th, we learn the hidden mysteries and are united in truth for the Kingdom; and 7th, we who are conformed to the image of the Lord will reign with Him on the Great Sabbath.
.
Moreover, the waters of the Word spread beyond the elect marriage to the elect family; from the elect family to the elect tribes; from the elect tribes to the elect nation; from elect nation to the elect from the world; from the elect of the world (who answer the call) to the elect union of all these, in hearts turned together; from the union of all these to a complete circle and the Husband and Wife (Christ and His Bride) returning to the beginning Paradise of God.
.
Again, this is how the Second Adam was made in the image of the Lord, and His Bride was formed from His sleeping Body. Together the elect are those who choose life and to restore all things. The covenants expand from the marriage covenant, to the family covenant, to the tribal covenant, to the national covenant, to a world covenant, and back to a unified nation of tribes, family, and the Divine marriage covenant. This is the way the original Rock ripples, and this is the way in which He rolls from the Mountain of God, and all His living stones roll in with Him. Then the Rock will grow into the Mountain from which He came, with all things restored to the Father in justice and righteousness.
.   
The point to this is that all things return to the beginning. The Great Sabbath that has been left to be fulfilled since the Genesis will be kept by the family of God.
.
For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.” Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience…There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.’ (Heb. 4:4-6, 9)
.
The Lord Messiah introduces Himself to the 7th house as the “Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God.” Here we see a word that is traditionally placed at the end of prayers and discourses- Amen– peculiarly placed at the beginning of the Divine message; this is a subtle suggestion that the Word of God goes back to the beginning from the end, and the beginning is the Word of God in Genesis. So be it (Amen) as in the beginning.
. 
It also takes little imagination to read the messianic introduction without some of the latter inserted commas as, “Amen [so be it] the faithful and true [will] witness the beginning of the creation of God,” with the word witness changed from a noun to an action verb. Or, without the interpolation, it reads: “So be it, the faithful and true witness the beginning of the creation of God.” Genesis, meaning beginning, is the destination of the restoration of the Holy Groom and the Bride that we become witnesses to. Let us therefore walk in the praise and the joy of the Lord back to the redemption of all things.
.
The Messiah is called the “Faithful Witness” when the Spirit describes Him coming to reign over the world (see Rev. 1:4-6), and there should be no doubt that the Lord introducing Himself to the 7th assembly with this title shows that this is the time when He comes to reign and restores things back to how they were in the Genesis.
.
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. (Rev. 19:11-16) NKJV; intrpl. & emp. mine
.
All these things should be abundantly evident to all readers who now understand the moedim template of Divine times. Repeatedly, I have written the same concepts over and over, knowing that for almost two millenniums of synagogue and church history these things have only been perceived in part, and not discerned at all by most.
. 
You have seen the Tree of Life which fits within the 1st millennium of biblical history; you have seen how the tribulations and impoverished world fits within the 2nd millennium of Noah’s Ark; you have seen how see how the manna fits within the 3rd millennium Exodus of Moses; you have seen how Jezebel’s corruption fits within the 4th millennium of the nations of Judah and Israel; you have seen how the Lord calls the Church to return to the beginning of the Gospel in the 5th millennium; you have seen the door of Israel opened for the people of God on the 6th millennium; and now you see the Lord coming to rule the nations on the 7th millennium.
.
You have also seen how Apostle Paul warns the assemblies of missing the seventh day. There is no more room for doubt among reasonable minds; the mystery is laid-out before elect readers as plain as possible and repeatedly. Those who have read these articles comprehend that Peter was given the spiritual keys to the coming Kingdom of Heaven, hidden in the earth, and how he warns the elect not to be unwitting of the hidden knowledge of 1,000 years being a day to God. Readers know that Peter reminds us of the coming restoration and Sabbath refreshing.
.   
Now that you, the reader, know the works that the Lord has been doing in the world, you need only decide if you will act upon the faith at the appointed time to meet with the Lord- to participate in the moed of the Great Sabbath. But remember, the Lord sends a warning to be early for His coming, for the last year of the Apocalypse, first year of the Day of YHVH, is the worst time to decide to act upon your faith and make your journey or flight. The last year of the Antichrist will be hell on Earth. 
.
“And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning [Genesis] of the world until this time [winter/Sabbath], no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened [curtailed], no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” (Matt. 24:20-22) NKJV; intrp. mine
.
Remember what Satan did to the Jews when the appointed time came for them to return to the land of Israel. The Lord opened the national door, and then Satan tried to destroy the entire race. All who did not enter early suffered more of Satan’s wrath. God, however, used that evil for good, increasing his nation with Jews who had once been too complacent to journey home. Hell comes on Earth because Satan seeks to prevent this coming restoration of the Kingdom. Christians not only are not raptured, but they will now be the controversy of the world as the Jews were. The children of “False Prophet” Mohammad will be there to destroy; false messiahs will be there to lead astray; voices will call from the wilderness to lead the gathered elect astray for torture and beheadings. Nations left in darkness will persecute faithful Bible-believers. Nevertheless, those who surrender all for the King and Kingdom, whether martyred or making it to the sealing, will be the praise of the Great King.
.
Welcome, if you are late to your awakening to the truth of the Gospel of the Kingdom, and welcome to the awakening of the called, where all faith will be tested and all believers will be tried. As long as their faiths had no testing, every preacher and teacher could be as great in the Lord as they showed themselves to be, teaching whatever distortions of Scripture and denominational doctrines they pleased. Now the Lord is calling for true, moving faith- for faith without works is dead- not merely personal desires, but obeying His instructions and following the Word. Now the Lord will know who is willing to pick-up their crosses and follow Him. So be it. Those who choose the old, muddied waters over the crystal-clean rains from heaven will receive no glory for their false beliefs, only correction. Every high tree will be debarked and brought down low. The thoroughly corrupted ones will be pulled-up by their roots if they do not repent and follow the faithful and true Word. All will be tested by the truth, no matter how righteous and spiritual they may believe themselves to be.
.   
Yet believers will not be without help nor dwell without hope when answering the call. Moses will be there, who was called “faithful” in all the Lord’s House (see Heb. 3:5). And Elijah will be there, who is called “true” in his teaching of Messiah (John 10:41). Great ones such as Isaiah and Daniel, Abraham and Noah will be there. They will lead the elect into the coming Kingdom of Heaven, which will be revealed in Israel and no longer suffer the violence of the nations.
.
“And from the days of John the Baptist [Elijah] until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John [Elijah]. And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Matt. 11:12-15)
.
For those who do not have “ears to hear,” the Lord is saying in this passage that Israel has suffered great violence since the days of Elijah the prophet. He lived in the century following King Solomon, when the Kingdom of God was divided into two nations that began to war among themselves and with the surrounding nations. Under Solomon the nation was glorified, united, and at peace. Then the Kingdom was divided in war because of Solomon’s spiritual sins. Israel is the Kingdom of Heaven- not the spiritual Kingdom but the manifestation of the Kingdom on Earth, where the spiritual will be restored. The Kingdom comes with the King. Prophecy of the coming Messiah continued until the spirit of Elijah in John announced the Lamb. And prophecy continues until the Messiah comes to Jews, with war continuing over Israel until the Kingdom no longer suffers violence. The Kingdom has been hidden in the world at Israel, and it will be revealed there for those who are able to spiritually hear these truths.
.   
Now that we have discerned that the faithful will follow the Word to the Kingdom, we must examine the Lord’s message to the undecided at the time of His revelation on the Great Sabbath. He gives these messages to comfortable, casual Christians and Jews- to the indifference and complacent:
.
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” – Yeshua HaMashiach (Rev. 3:15-16) NKJV
..
This message reveals that the lukewarm Christians and Jews will not have part in the coming Kingdom of Heaven at Israel. They will be cast out of the land. Those who are not found wearing the white robes of righteousness, who do not follow the Word in truth, will be both turned away from the Kingdom or cast out if they are already there. Many people will also be vomited out of the other nations of the earth because of their rebellion against the Lord’s truths. The population of the world is about to be brought back to ancient times, with whole cities in ruins.
.
“Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger [Gentile] who dwells among you (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.” (Lev. 18:24-28) NKJV; emp. & intrpl. mine
.
In Malachi, when prophesying about the coming of the Sun of Righteousness, the Lord reminds His people to “remember the Law of Moses with its statutes and judgments.” The Lord will not cast out those who keep His Law in spiritual truth, but He will vomit lukewarm and lawless believers out of the land. Furthermore, they will eventually be cast out of all the nations of the world for the dominion of the Great King. Isaiah declares for the end-times that the world has “broken the everlasting covenant,” and it is therefore left desolate, with relatively few people left after the LORD’s judgment. Clearly this looks to His judgments coming upon all, beginning at the assemblies of the Lord, because they have not honored His Word and commandments in which He has made known to the nations of the world. The world is defiled under its inhabitants and it will vomit them out of the nations (see Isa. 24:4-6).
.
Serving The Elites:
.
How many of great leaders will not dine at Messiah’s table of trusty truths? Thus, now this resplendent Sword, studded with jewels, will slightly slight the temperate tenants of taste. For they must be tenderly tended, being so easily offended, lest it altogether act swift in its zeal and hastily lay their doctrinal dishes to waste. I am but a humble concierge to their gifted grandeur, expected to bow at first sign of their sight, and they are greeted guests to whom we servants confess, that they are blessed in their golden inn we so casually call “life.” So this exuberant Sword must poetically slice nice in the night and in the gloom of their rich melancholy. Not quite polite, but gently guided with vice, if they but suffer a bit of my folly. I softly step into serene quarters and their luxuriant borders, and mildly sting much indeed to their hoarders’ surprise. With a bitter-sweet bite is a serendipity delight, prophetic to the ears well refined. And if they but suffer a bit more at the doorkeeper’s Sword, and hear of all I must say, I come with a meal, so taste of this steel, for I dare not gorge at the gourmands’ gourmet. For I do know to walk subtly, when among such gentle souls’ smugness, when I seek to tell this rich tale to their lovelies with some grace. See, I softly say “repent” in this whispered grimace, or splendid days will be finished, and to hell will be the inn where you stay!
. 
Come dance with this graceful Sword, tender-handed elites, and all of you who sample these prophecies of Messiah of late! Give heed to its pernicious sway gracious ladies and gentlemen! For I dare not grandstand in your generous presence, or mock at your global agenda, as if to stand insolent on your prestigious world stage. Nor do I seek a standing ovation for performing in the corner of your magnificent sight, since certainly you are more blessed and deserve better than my mala fide mockery and religion-laced cocktail of “hate.” And after all, the pathway to paradise is surely your red carpet invitation, which you may weigh in your utopian itinerary you so carefully make, at your own time and pleasure of day. Therefore, no, do not leave, but please, please, come in and feast, here with me on my parquetry pathway. And let me offer you a seat, perhaps the best in the House, best position for the proud, and best worldview in all of this place. See, the doorposts of glory have just begun rumble and the walls but begin now to shake. Thus, you perceive that you sit in full serenity. And I have but a few things to share, if you will so kindly permit me, and think it not lunacy, but endure a little more of my loquacious lament. Sample of this Sword; it cuts but a little, and connoisseur but a taste of this wine. Here is today’s menu, la carte du jour, and tell me, how best would you have it served in your times?
.
Yes madam, and certainly sire, now I have written of your preference: You would have your patristic platters of hors d’oeuvres, carefully balanced, delivered as entremets of godliness, and finally served with the plat de resistance of your material lives? Is this correct? So, please, express to me, how will your main entrees again taste vomited out? Oh my! Pardon me! I must have slipped! Am I thus dubbed a disgrace for distaste! But you have sprinkled but a touch of Scriptures in the culturally-rich recipes of your extravagant existences, and perhaps I got a bit carried away! Surely in no way will you consider these savory doctrinal dishes; you prefer your Scriptures a bit bland, and perhaps I should ask pardon of you? I must have forgotten this doorkeeper’s place! Or, should we jest but a bit more smug?
.
You are the fans of the fancy, the financially fidelis, but we are fanatics and fools for our faiths? Is this correct? Oh, but dear guests, have you not partially perceived that when the parceling platters, seasoned with salt, are tossed to the flames of fournaise? No, I am afraid that your ornate dishes, your artful opuscula, will not be tasted at the table of my King. For when you blink you will miss it, the most savory of dishes, reserved only for the meals of God’s meek and the saved. Thus, our religion is opium for common masses, but your opera is better suited for high classes, but in secret you smuggle but a taste? Thus I must digress, see you have failed my Lord’s test, so you must please see your own way out of this place. But for the poor and the meek, the doorkeeper must arise to oblige, who eat the whole Word of God with their faiths. For the snobbery rich, who blaspheme the Word of my Lord, the spit of the righteous is too good for your face! 
. 
Apologetic friends of the world, ashamed of the good news of God, can you see that He vomits out the piecemeal offerings of your part-time piety from His mouth? Your image of righteousness is filthy, the fake culture of frauds, and it stinks from filthy France to the high heavens. How in the world will the rich enter the coming Kingdom of God, lest they do the kind deeds and will of God? How will God save those who conspire from guilt of compromises of fleeting mortality, unless elites become meek and repent, to put His truths above desires for worldly acceptance and resist appeasement to those who are indifferent to the mysteries of God?
.
Because you say, “I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing”- and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked- I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.’ (Rev. 3:17-18) NKJV
.
Peter’s Church was warned not to be found naked at the Lord’s coming, and this warning is for all the people of God. We are called to have eyes to see these things, to be refined by Holy Spirit fire and to go to the marriage of the Lamb at the appointed time.
.
Gold is being bought as nations are brought to the brink of economic collapse, dipping in and out of recessions and depressions; underground bunkers and safe houses are being built in anticipation of what is to come; survival techniques are being taught; and conspiracy theories rage over the internet to warn the people of the world; but how many people are watching the words of Scripture and heeding the instructions of God? How many people who think they are prepared will be found unaware of the truth and be left behind sorrowful in the lives that they so preparedly sought to preserve?
..
Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. (1 Pet. 4:12-14) NKJV 
.
I perceive that many Jews, Protestants, Orthodox, and Catholics who are not sealed at the midnight doorway of the sixth millennium will suffer greatly on the morning of the Great Sabbath. It will be a suffering unto refinement and honored in glory, yet is not necessary if they would first be sealed by the Spirit at the appointed time for the coming Sabbath. There is no need for the elect to be found exposed at Christ’s coming, nor for Him to come upon them as a thief. Yet so it will be at His coming for many of the people whom He calls:
.
“Behold I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” (Rev.16:15) NKJV
.
The solution to ignorance of the Word and unprepared believers is given in the same chapter as the warning of them being found naked at His coming. It is to learn the Word, letting Christ teach it as food for His people to eat. In the Philadelphia assembly the Lord showed that He provides an open door to the House of David for His people, which no man could shut or open by human might; yet in this assembly of the Great Sabbath, we find the Lord knocking on the doors of His people, asking for the doors of their hearts to be opened for Him to share the meal of scriptural truths with them.

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” (Rev. 3:19-20) NKJV

“But seek first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in heaven that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them.” (Luke 12:31-37)

Here, we subtly perceive there is a separation between those who will be sealed in the sixth year, for a spiritual union with the Lord on the seventh year, and the believers whom He is revealed to at the end of the Apocalypse, when all eyes behold His appearance in the skies, delivering Israel from the nations gathered against them. The messages of this book are centered on those who are called to the marriage, yet the Lord will continue to teach the entire world during the Day of the LORD, of all who are left. The whole world will become His dominion, but the blessed Bride and inheritors will first forsake all for the marriage coming to Jerusalem. She will be taken up in spirit- not flesh- to meet the Lord, having been faithful to follow His instructions and answer His call.

“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Rev. 3:21-22)

This completes the Lord’s messages to the seven houses. In this article you have been given the highligh events of the true progression of the millennial Temple. The passages which support these interpretations, and extrication of the exegetical mysteries of hidden ages of millennial assemblies, are numerous; I, the author, have only added a small portion of the scriptural support available, so that the progression of the ages may be seen with little obscurity.

All things will be tested by the fire of the Spirit, to burn-away every false teaching and things written in errant eschatology, as well as to establish the meanings of those things written in shadows and types of Messiah.
