AND THE RETURN OF THE PROPHETS
Word Study on the Hidden Code from Zechariah 12:10

‘Then I will pour out a spirit of grace and prayer on the family of David and on the people of Jerusalem. They (Jews) will look on Me (Jesus) whom they have pierced and mourn for Him as for an only son. They will grieve bitterly for Him as for a firstborn son who has died.’ – Zechariah 12:10
The purpose of this study is to examine some amazing assertions based on the Bible’s account of several personages in the Last Days that are to return, literally. Foremost, the Bible declares that the return of these personages is a result of a heavenly and eternal contention that will be coming to a head in the End of Days on Earth. As spectacular as it might seem, the entire Heavenly warfare going on since before the foundations of the Earth were set and Humanity was created will center on Earth, on Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount. The culmination of this celestial war has Humanity in the midst and hanging in the balance. This paper will present a Hebrew word study based on Zechariah 12:10 that will be show the hidden code of Christ’s return.
To fathom that for all the vastness of the seen universe of billions of galaxies and worlds, the prophetic conclusion of the Angelic Wars of Heaven will be determined on Earth below with mankind. What is amazing to consider is that the Creator, the 2nd Person of the GOD-Head took on flesh that is Jesus. For all that is known, perhaps this had to do to some measure as to why there is such a contention between Lucifer and mankind. Perhaps it is because Jesus Christ took on the form of Adam’s fallen race and sided with Humanity to redeem it. What began with such personages that will be mentioned will conclude with the King Himself, the Coming Pierced One, Jesus. The return will also consist of the type and antitype of the following: Christ-AntiChrist, Prophets-False Prophets, Angels-Fallen Angels, etc., in a final prophetic showdown.
Based on the Biblical narrative, the return of such will be accompanied by their respective dichotomy or duality of antithesis, that is Christ and the Antichrist, the Arch Angels Gabriel and Michael and their hosts pitched against Lucifer, the Fallen Cherub and his hosts of ‘Fallen Ones’, to include Apollyon and the so called ‘Aliens’. Then there are the 2 Witnesses, most probable Elijah, and Enoch against the False Prophet and perhaps the Mahdi. Lastly, there will be the 2 type of ‘Women’ in the Last Days. There is the one representing Israel, the Remnant of YHVH as in the Virgin Revelation 12 Sign. This will be after the Rapture as the Bride returns with Christ. The other ‘Woman’ will be the Whore of Babylon. Such a culmination of prophetic time will encompass the Time of Jacob’s Trouble as Israel will be at the epicenter of this convergence of contention amongst those that are to return. It will be the Middle East that will be the battleground for this strife between good and evil as it is unfolding now presently as a prelude.
The Return of the Christs
Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south… Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!… - Zechariah 14:4-5
The Bible states that it will be the LORD Jesus Christ that is to return at the end of the Tribulation, specifically the last day of the Battle of Armageddon as Zechariah 14 describes His 2nd Coming ‘touchdown’ on the Mount of Olives with His feet. It will be as promised by His Angles to His Disciples that in the same manner and in the same spot, Jesus would descend in a cloud as He was taken up in one. What will be different is that as Enoch, one of the Prophets to return in the ‘end’ as well testified that Christ would be coming with 10,000 of His Saints that all the world and particularity the Jews will see. The word study of Zechariah 12:10 will show that in the very verse, the ‘One whom is pierced’ that is to return is none other than Jesus, the Alef and the Tav, the Beginning and the End per Revelation 3:10. It will be at this 2nd coming that Jesus will fully reveal Himself to Israel because the Time of Jacob’s Trouble will have had its effect of turning Israel completely toward YHVH.
Many Bible scholars and prophecy students do have a scenario that the 2nd Coming of Christ will coincide with the Feast of Trumpets. Thereafter, as in the successive fulfillments of the Spring Feast within a week, the LORD will prophetically fulfill the Fall Feasts within the prescribed week; of Yom Kippur thereafter when He cleanses the Temple grounds and is crowned King of Israel and the world for that matter. It will be then on Sukkot that He will establish the foundation for the Sukkahs or habitations in preparation for the Millennial Temple that will last 1000 years per the interpretation in the book of Revelation. GOD the SON had a commission from GOD the Father to first come to the ‘lost house of Israel’ in keeping with His covenant to Abraham to redeem an Earthly people for Himself. The descendants of Abraham became the Jews through the line of Isaac and Jacob. As a nation they eventually rejected the credentials of the promised Messiah.
It was at this point in time that Israel was totally compromised and ruled by those that Jesus would deem ‘Worthless Shepherds’, the ‘Money Changers’. This same state of apostasy is what is to characterize the last Church Age dispensation just before Jesus’ return. Such were even called ‘Brood of Vipers by John the Baptist. This in itself shows but a glimmer of the contention between the 2 nations fighting for the Birthright of Israel to this day, Jacob, and Esau. As Jesus is the true Christ, the Anointed of the LORD, there is also a contender of the natural first-born, the AntiChrist that seeks to usurp the Throne of YHVH, the very House of the LORD. Ultimately it is Lucifer who was the ‘Anointed Cherub’ that seeks to be the preeminent Christ. This contention has become 2-fold with the sons of Esau but also with the sons of Ishmael.
The Return of the Prophets
As to the contention of the descendants of Esau, the point is that as the true Christ, Jesus has his true Jews on one hand. On the other, Jesus exposed the conspiracy that Lucifer has his ‘Jew’s that are not Jews at all but imposters. Jesus referred to them as the Synagogue of Satan and whose father was neither Abraham nor GOD the Father, but another and who would accept the coming false AntiChrist on behalf of the nation. This contention has paralleled Israel’s history to this day and will during the Tribulation Period. In terms of the Church, as the LORD Jesus will complete His ‘Spiritual House’, that is His Bride from among the Churches throughout all the Church Age up to the Rapture, Lucifer will start the construction of his spiritual house, the 3rd Temple. As this contention has been originated in eternity past, from the very Throne Room of YHVH, it will have its manifestation and corresponding abomination in the Throne Room of YHVH on Earth in the 3rd Temple. This event will correspond with the return of the final AntiChrist of Lucifer.
He like the true Christ Jesus will take on an incarnation of Lucifer into the literally flesh or body of his man, the Son of Perdition. The Bible is very clear that it is Jesus the SON of GOD whom has the favor of the Father and has been chosen as the inheritor of all that was, is and is to come, not the sons of Esau or Ishmael. Jesus is of the royal bloodline that is the one that has been given all authority in Heaven, on Earth and under the Earth. Moreover, it is at the Name of Jesus that all that was, is and will be, will ‘bow the knee’ to Him as the all Sovereign of the Universe. This means that Lucifer, the Fallen Cherub, the AntiChrist, his demonic hosts, ‘aliens’, his False Prophet will bow the knee and be thrown alive into the Lake of Fire. Lucifer’s ‘Woman’, i.e., Babylon will be smashed to pieces at Jesus’ return, etc.
The other primarily personages to prophetically return literally at the End of Days are the Prophets. In particular, the book of Revelation states that there will be 2 Witnesses that will testify against their nemeses, the False Prophet for 1260 days or 3.5 years. The prevailing interpretation is that this will occur at the 2nd half of the Tribulation period. This would culminate in the ending of the commission of the witness of the 144,000 and all those that they evangelized that are seen with the olive branches and singing the Song of Moses, apparently having been raptured around the mid-Tribulation point. A mathematical clue as to the composition of the 144,000 has to do with its alternate rendering in terms of time. The coefficient of 14,000 is a derivative of 14,400 minutes that makes up 10 days. The period of 10 days was the time between the ascension of Jesus to Pentecost.
Thus, the sealing and sending out of the 144,000 could be as a parallel of the sealing and sending out of the First Fruits of the Church that occurred at the 1st Pentecost in the Temple precinct. This prophetic pattern could be signaling Israel’s Pentecost event as it was for the Church perhaps. The Disciples were sent out as will the 144,000 from each tribe of Israel. This study suggests that it will be the commissioning and witness by Israel for Israel and the world on steroids. It will be connected to a Temple also. This event will also suggest that the need will require the sustained witness and commission of the LORD as the prior one held by the Church had been removed, i.e., the Rapture.
The notion of who these 2 Witnesses will be is narrowed down to 3 possible candidates, those of Elijah, Enoch, and Moses. The popular notion that Moses is one of the Witnesses is romantic and has some validity especially seeing the depiction of a literal event of both Elijah with Moses with a transfigured Jesus at the Mount of Transfiguration around the Feast of Tabernacles. The language is very powerful to allude to a witness they are to be concerning Jerusalem in the Last Days during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. What is problematic is that Moses physically died. This condition alone would disqualify Moses from being one of the 2 Witnesses because he died. This is confirmed as the contention between the Arch Angels when they disputed over the bones of Moses. No one knows where the LORD buried Moses and for good reason. As it had been prevalent in Israel and the Church to this day, mankind is plagued by the worship of relics. Thus, to have the ‘bones of Moses’, the Liberator of Israel would derail the worship of Israel away from YHVH to a man, Moses in this case.
The protocol is that according to the Bible, it is appointed man once to die, then the judgment. With Enoch and Elijah, the Bible is very clear that they were translated or raptured without seeing physical death. Thus the return of the Prophets, Enoch and Elijah would seem plausible as they were the ones who contended most with apostasy, idolatry and the Fallen Ones before the Flood of Noah in the case of Enoch that will also return in the Last Days. There are those that would argue that one case in point is Lazarus. He was died for the 3 days required to confirm a death in Jewish custom for the mere fact that in some cases, a presumed dead person would resuscitate within a day or 2. It would prevent any such to be compromised when one would find oneself awakened 6 feet under, alive.
Moreover, Jesus purposely waited in agony and in tears to ensure Lazarus was ‘dead’ physically without a Jewish shadow of a doubt. What He was about to do, would authenticate His Messiahship, Jesus would raise a dead person from the grave. This is where perhaps there is a need explanation of what is death. Biblically death is the separation of the soul and spirit from the body. With modern medicine, a person can be clinically dead but kept alive physically yet all the while a person is not really there as in brain waves. There are 2 possible explanations for Lazarus. One is that there is a prevailing misconception of what ‘die once’ means. The context could thus only pertain to the spirit’s separation with the physical body. Jesus did say that ‘your brother is not dead, but sleeps, therefore I come to awake him.’ This is in contrast to the spiritual death of the soul. Thus the condition of the ‘death’ could have been a clinical coma.
In the Last Days, the apostasy, war, violence and idolatry will culminate in the release of Lucifer’s antitheses; the False Prophet who will direct the world to the AntiChrist as the savior. The language of the book of Revelation depicts that this man will be the one who speaks as a ‘lamb’ but whose authority is given by the Dragon, aka, Lucifer the Shining One. Many believe that this man will be the last Pope of Rome in keeping with the notion of a usurpation that has taken place by the false Church, i.e., the Roman Catholic Church that many would conclude is the Harlot riding the Beast. As the days of such returning one’s approach there are certain people adamant that they are perhaps one of the 2 Witnesses. There has to be a 'testing of the spirit' for such a proclamation.
The Return of the Angelic Princes
As this study suggests, the return of the various personages will be the literal authentic ones, not a metaphor or a presumed reincarnation or anointing. To the many that ask if they are Elijah, really? Such are not. Does this person know Hebrew and/or Aramaic and been to Mount Sinai, the one in Arabia? The legitimate question would be why are you in someone else’s body, mind, and soul? Can he describe that to us? Also, why would they be assuming a different identity that would constitute a reincarnated person that is in another body and mind? This would be contrary to the Bible. Point being, is that when Elijah comes, he won't need to ask if 'it is he' or if he is one of the 2 Witnesses because it will be him -the same in his former body, mind and soul completely.
Elijah will not some others that need to ask if they are or as a metaphor. If such need to ask, this is the for sure sign that they are not. Then there the Fallen Ones, as in the Luciferian Angelic hosts in opposition to YHVH that will return also in the Last Days. In one form, it will be Apollyon or Abaddon in Hebrew. This to some researchers are going to return in tandem and perhaps as in a deception that will present themselves as the ‘creator Aliens’ come to support the AntiChrist and ‘save’ Humanity from itself. Many believe that this scenario to a large measure will constitute the ‘Great Lie’ that will deceive many. When such a ‘discloser’ of ‘aliens’ come upon Earth, they will in some way discredit Jesus as the only Begotten of the Father.
In some way they will either disclose that Jesus was one of them, an ‘alien creator’ that ‘seeded’ the human race or that every world or planet has a ‘savior’ of sorts only pertinent to that race. Unbeknownst to most, these Fallen Princes are the very ones that left their first estate and are the Watchers of the times of Enoch who had direct conversation with and are very familiar with. They had an evil plan to rebel intentionally against YHVH’s prescripts to not mingle with the seed of Mankind. They did and were banished to Tartarus. According to the Bible, it will be during the Tribulation Period that the chained ‘Titans’ will be loosed from the Bottomless Pit to inflict unimaginable horror upon mankind. It will be their ‘king’, Abaddon, or Apollo of old, Apollyon that will be the commander over this minion of monsters at Lucifer’s disposal.
Many are sensing that portals are set to be opening up and especially with the CERN activities and occult rituals taking place in its premises. Why is here a frenzy of demonic activity and the need for such portals to be opened? It appears that since September of 2015, a convergence of many prophetic timelines have occurred, especially because of the Jubilee Cycles and the Year of 5776 that to the Luciferians is the year in which their ‘Shining Serpent’ AntiChrist is to start his ascension into the world scene. The year 5776 as in 1776 is referred to the Year of Light. It is perceived by many in the occult as the coming of the Shining One. What was unique was that the Civil New Year of YHVH’s Rosh HaShanah that started the year 5776, was called the Year of Light. This 5777-5778 was the 7th 7-year cycle or Jubilees since 1966 when Temple Mount was recaptured by Israel. End of Tetrad on Sukkot with a Super Blood Moon alignment of Uranus in Pisces. A coming event will facilitate the building of the 3rd Temple, a major war with Israel most likely.
Lucifer has always sought to deface the image of YHVH throughout his creation. Since the Garden of Eden, Lucifer has sought to destroy Humanity through genetic manipulation and altercation if at least to change Humanity’s image into Lucifer’s; an alternate creation with a promise of immortality on Lucifer’s terms and condition which is always total subjection and slavery. It is the same old lie since Paradise that Lucifer has not been able to perfect. This is why since Genesis 6, humans have been abducted to either be cloned or create a hybrid of sorts that will surpass that of YHVH’s crowning achievement found in the Adam and Eve, that by the way, was complete, perfect, whole and good, without revision or altercation required.
Many believe that during this particular End of Days, such entities will introduce a type of bio chip that will alter Humanity’s DNA in some fashion in the promise of Transhumanism for the betterment of Humanity. In this context of the ones that are to return in the End of Days there will be other Angelic hosts that will be returning for similar significance and roles to play in the final celestial conflict. Among the ‘Returners’ are the Arch Angels Michael and Gabriel in particular that will battle against the Arch Cherub Lucifer who is really a want-to-be-GOD’ glorified Angel. According to the book of Daniel, the Prophet Daniel’s prayer was hindered for 21 days (7-7-7) as the ‘transmission’ line was being sabotaged by Lucifer. In this case the Prince of Persia who is the antithesis to the Angelic Princes, Gabriel, and Michael.
'Then he said to me, Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the Prince of the Kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for 21 days; then behold, Michael, one of the Chief Princes, (Arch Angels) came to help me, for I had been left there with the Kings of Persia. Now I have come to give you an understanding of what will happen to your people (the Jews) in the Last Days, for the vision pertains to the days yet future.' - Daniel 10: 12-14
'Then he said, Do you know why I have come to you? But now I will return to fight against the Prince of Persia; and when I go out, behold, the prince of Greece will come. 21 But I will tell you what is inscribed in the book of truth: there is none who contends by my side against these except Michael, your Prince.' - Daniel 10: 20-21
These verses are very profound and indicative of the Last Days of which Israel will still have to content with the Satanic spirit and demons behind one nation’s leaders in particular, that of Iran, which is ancient Persia. It was told to Daniel plainly that such Arch Angles, Gabriel, and Michael will return to fight the demonic Angel called the Prince of Persia in the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, not the Church. As alluded in Daniel, these will once again strive with the ranks of Gabriel and Michael to re-engage in the celestial war to culminate on the Temple Mount.
'At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, (Jacob’s Trouble) such as never has been since there was a nation till that time.' - Daniel 12:1
The Return of the Brides
Thus study suggests that what will be a catalyst for the various return of the personages mentioned. It will be in part because the Restrainer will be set aside, i.e., the Rapture of the Bride of Christ. The veil between the principalities and powers and Earth will be so thin that such manifestation will be realized. In essence, all these personages have not really left the Earth but in some cases have been here all along behind the scenes. As it pertains to the ‘Women’ that are to return, this is in direct inference the raptured Bride of Christ, Israel, and the harlot Beast System. It will be Israel that will return to the epicenter of prophecy during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. The study strongly suggests that as Christ’s Woman, i.e., the Bride has been removed, it is thus the Woman of Revelation 12 that takes the prophetic inference. The ‘return’ of this Revelation 12 ‘Woman’ is none other than Israel, the Remnant and Elect at that particular time, not to be confused or exchanged for the Church, that is the Bride of Christ.
It will be a time as it was for the literal birthing of the Messiah in the past. She too will see the protection in the Last Days as she is provided haven for the last half of the Tribulation Period at Petra. The antithesis of Israel as the Revelation 12 Virgin will be the ‘Whore’ of Lucifer that will culminate a tri-fold manifestation. In the meanwhile, it will be the Harlot false woman, i.e., the False Prophet that will lead and direct all worship to the AntiChrist. This Woman has been riding the Beast since Babylon. It is a unifying system that will be in full control of the AntiChrist’s domain that dictates all the social, religious, economic, and political systems of the world. It will be in essence Lucifer’s final World Order that will attempt to unite the world as Nimrod did in Babylon. Moreover this ‘Woman’ described as a whore has persecuted the Saints and is drunk with the blood of Jesus’ martyrs.
In the Last Days, this contention between the 2 Brides will focus on Israel and those that come to faith in Jesus the Messiah by the efforts of either the 144,000 Jewish evangelists and/or the 2 Witnesses. It will be a time as it was when the ‘Jezebel’ of old killed the Prophets of YHVH and sought out the Prophet Elijah. How befitting it will be that Elijah is to content with her spirit beguiling Israel once again. It will return in full force in the Time of Jacob’s Trouble as such similar prophetic circumstances will even be the same. There will be no rain for 3.5 years and both the AntiChrist and Elijah will call fire from Heaven. It will be as it was with the epic Battle of the Prophets, with Elijah against the Satanic false prophets of Ba’al on Mount Carmel.
Many believe that the start of this possible scenario might coincide with the Jubilee Year Cycle. This supposes an end to the current dispensation of the Church Age. One clue is that in 2018, Jerusalem completed 50 years since the liberation of the Temple Mount. This ‘season’ also converges with the 70th year anniversary of Israel’s independence since 1948. This study is not insinuating that the Tribulation Period will start because of these time markers as there could be a lull or gap in-between the Rapture and the Tribulation Period, etc. Nonetheless, the Temple of Solomon is to be rebuilt and their ‘God’ Lucifer, by way of the AntiChrist is to be revealed and known soon after the Rapture of Christ’s Woman.
The Hidden Code of the Messiah’s Return
The central theme of this paper is the word study from Zechariah 12:10. It will be presented to examine the key letters of the hidden Alef and Tav that many exclaim is in reference to Jesus Christ. This verse will be compared for structure and context with other key verses that appear in Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 44:6 and Song of Solomon 2:1, etc. The following are the words of Jesus as He appeared to the last Disciple alive, the one whom Jesus loved from Revelation 3:10.
אֵ Alef Tav ת
Sayng ‘I AM – the Alpha and the Omega the FIRST and the LAST’
Λεγούσης Ἐγώ ἐιμι τὸ Α καὶ τὸ Ω ὁ πρῶτος καὶ ὁ ἔσχατος
The Alef and the Tav, the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet that signify ‘The Beginning and the End’ will be examined for their literal definition of the compound word from the Paleo-Hebrew. The following is the example of how Jesus, the Alpha and Omega in Greek or the Alef and the Tav in Hebrew 7-word sentence encoded in Genesis 1:1. Hebrew is read right to left.
בְּרֵאשִׁית ברָ אֹלהִים אֵת הַשּׁמִַי וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ
the Earth. and the Heaven (silent) GOD created In the Beginning ß
Ha’ares we’et hassamayim ‘et ‘Elohim bara Beresit
The second word in the ‘Creation Code’ infers the Creator. In Colossians 1:16, the New Testament declares that it is indeed Jesus who is the Creator. ‘For by Him (Yeshua) ALL things were created that are in Heaven and that are on Earth.’ The 3 character wordבָּרָא is made up of the Beyt that in Paleo-Hebrew was depicted as a house or tent. The second letter was the Resh. It denoted a man’s head to infer a 1st rank or sequence order.
The last character depicts an ox’s head. The Bible starts with this ‘hidden’ imagery of Jesus in the midst of the Creation verse, the Bible ends with the revelation of who this Alef and Tav is; it is Jesus. The pictorial core can be read as ‘In the Beginning, GOD the SON, GOD, The Beginning and the END (Jesus) created the Heavens and the Earth. Thus, the term ‘creator’ can be simplified to it pictorial core that means ‘GOD the SON’ or The ‘Son of GOD’.
Literally the ‘Code of Creation’ can be read as the following, ‘In the Beginning, GOD the SON, GOD, The Beginning and the END (Jesus) created the Heavens and the Earth.’ Jesus is found in the Alefbet in that each letter is a particular facet of the character and person of Messiah. Each letter is a ‘code’ that reveals the hidden meaning based on the letter’s root definition.
The Crucifixion of Adonai
The Alef and Tav, the ‘Beginning and End’ is a title of Jesus and inferences to His 1st coming and 2nd coming. It is a ‘veiled’ depiction of the LORD being crucified. The Tav represents the means by which Jesus was marked by the nails on His hand to seal that on the Cross. The Alef denotes how the coming King was and is a Teacher, meek, as a Joshua, a leader who is the LORD that is to reign on Earth at His 2nd coming as the conqueror over sin, death, and Lucifer. The Alef and Tav are in reversed order as Jesus, the King, first humbled Himself to redeem Adam’s race. Jesus first came as the ‘Lamb’ of YHVH before He is to take possession of the Kingdom of GOD on Earth at His 2nd coming as a ‘Lion’. The following are the definitions of Tav and Alef, which literally means at its ultimate inference, ‘Adonai on the Cross’. Hebrew is read right to left.
יֵשׁוּעַ הַנָּצְרִי מֶלֶךְ הַיְּהוּדִים
Jews of the King Nazarene Yeshua ß
יֵהַמֶהַ = (YHVH) יהוה ?
The following are the attributed associated with each letter based on Jesus’ 1st coming and 2nd coming.
1st Coming 2nd Coming
Yosef ben Messiah Messiah ben David
The Mark The Teacher
To Seal Is Meek
A Covenant A Leader
On Cross Is Adonai
(THE Crucifixion) (Millennial reign)
These 2 letters, the Alef and the Tav are found in the midst of the Isaiah 44 verse where the word Sharon is a ‘code within a code’ within the term the Beginning and the End. What is significant about the pictographs of these 2 letters is that they render an astonishing depiction of the finished work of Christ, the Redeemer, the Crucifixion.
[there is] GOD not and beside me the LAST and I [AM] the FIRST I [AM] of hosts the YHVH and His Redeemer of Israel the KING YHVH says Thus 44:6 Isaiah
יהו כֹּֽה־אָמַ֨ר יְהוָ֧ה מֶֽלֶךְ־ יִשְׂרָאֵ֛ל וְגֹאֲלֹ֖ו יְהוָ֣ה צְבָאֹ֑ות אֲנִ֤י רִאשֹׁון֙ וַאֲנִ֣י אַחֲרֹ֔ון וּמִבַּלְעָדַ֖י אֵ֥ין אֱלֹהִֽים׃
Elohim ëyn ûmiBal'äday aShárôn waániy Roshôn ániy tz'väôt Yahweh w'goálô Yisrael melekh' Yahweh ämar -Koh (Isaiah)
At its core definition, Alef means Adonai, Tav means Cross. Thus the ‘code’ of the Rose of Sharon is that in Hebrew when the LORD states that He is the ‘Beginning and the End’, it phonetically sounds like ‘I AM the Rose of Sharon’, and that within the Sharon, ’I AM Adonai that was crucified’. Hebrew is read right to left.
רִאשֹׁון֙ וַאֲנִ֣י אַחֲרֹ֔ון
A-sha-ron-win I[AM] ra-so-wn
= THE LAST = THE FIRST
I AM the Rose of Sharon
The Pierced One
The Alef and Tav and/or the Hebrew words for the ‘Beginning and the End’ as ‘codes’ for the Messiah are hidden in plain sight from verse 10 of Zechariah chapter 14 in the Torah. This specific verse speaks not only about how YHVH proclaims that He is the Beginning and the End in the Old Testament but that it is Jesus who is the Messiah that was not only pierced but will come again. This royal and singular divine title clearly has a parallel proclamation made by the risen LORD Jesus Christ that at the last day of the Battle of Armageddon, national Israel will finally realize that it had been Jesus of Nazareth all along that had been their rejected Messiah. The study will break down the verses in the Law and the Prophets to reveal that the Messiah is the Pierced One, Jesus. Hebrew is read right to left.
dā·qā·rū; ’ă·šer- ’êṯ ’ê·lay wə·hib·bî·ṭū
וְהִבִּ֥יטו אֵלַ֖י אֵ֣ת אֲשֶׁר־ דָּקָ֑רוּ
they have pierced whom (Silent) on me and they shall look ß
This event is reminiscent of how Moses was instructed to put the Bronze Snake on a cross and lift it up on a high place so that the entire congregation could see it. The prescription of YHVH was that whosoever would only ‘look’ upon it would be healed of the venomous poison that had bitten the congregation. When Jesus was lifted high on Mount Calvary just outside the Garden Tomb, all that people have to do is look upon the Pierced One to have the venomous poison of sin be removed as far as the East is from the West. This was national Israel’ fault in that they did not this remedy and as many in the wilderness, they perished. The privilege of entering into the Promised Land was given to another generation, i.e., the Church.
It will only be at the end of Jacob’s Trouble that the nation of Israel, as a collective whole will turn to see Jesus. It will be as Moses did as he turned to the burning bush and look at the Glory of YHVH. The coming of the Pierced One, their Messiah that hung on a cross just outside the city on Golgotha Hill within such similar glory. Divesting for Israel will be the fact that it will still have to go through much tribulation to get her to turn in belief. She was birthed in a day, although in unbelief but has been drawn by the chords of love and the prompting by jealousy of the Royal Commission being currently administered by the Church. If the culminating signs in the heavens, on Earth and the synchronization of prophetic timelines are any indication, perhaps the transference of this Royal Commission is about to return to Israel’s administration.
There is erroneous teaching very prevalent within the Body of Christ as to who is the Church of Christ. The word Church is just another way of saying the ‘called out gathering’. It is a multitude, not just made up of one person. The Church is attributed to a gathering as when the throng of the Israelites came out of Egypt during the Exodus and subsequent wilderness journey of the 40 year of testing. Thus, Israel was a type of Church that the Apostle Paul correctly attributes to a called-out assembly or ‘Church in the Wilderness’. But he taught about the ‘mystery’ of the Bride of Christ to be taken out from among the Gentiles during the Church Age. This is what infuriated the Jews in Paul’s day because of this teaching of a Bride and a Rapture.
Who is the Bride?
The Church like Eve was within the very veins of Jesus as the 2nd Adam. Paul further taught that the Bride of Christ as Eve was to be built with ‘Living Stones’ as a Spiritual House and presented by the Father to the SON. The Church Age has been about a painful growth, building project ‘until Christ be formed in her’ according to the teaching of Paul. The point is that the present Church Age is unique. It is the mystery of a particular constitution of living souls or Living Stones that are being used, chiseled, fashioned, polished, cut, sharpened, etc., into a Temple for Jesus to indwell mysteriously and gloriously. The Prophets of old and even the Angels sought to know and look into this this mystery but was veiled as a betrothed Bride would be.
This study strongly suggests that the Church as refereeing to the Body of Christ is unique, during a unique time and for a unique people. This Spiritual Temple, the Bride is comprised of the ‘New Man in Christ’, both Jew and Greek, etc. Moreover, the Bride of Christ that is to be taken from the ‘material’ of Jesus had not existed until the very crucifixion of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary. The Bible directly refers to Jesus as the true type of the 1st Adam. It was at the point of His death when the water and blood, specifically came out of His side, of His rib cage as it was with Adam in that Eve was taken from his side. It was at Pentecost that the Church, this new body that had never existed before was to be sealed by the Holy Spirit forever and was commissioned to preach the Gospel and Living Stones.
Such are being used to majestically in Jesus be built up into a Spiritual Temple even. This cannot be said of any one single ‘called out’ man or woman in the Bible or even Israel. The point is that the Church Age dispensation has been a unique time as none other will either. This is why the physical Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed for almost the entire duration of the Church Age. Thus, this study suggests that once the Tribulation starts after the Rapture of the Bride, it could be in tandem with the start of the rebuilding efforts of the physical Temple. As the antithesis, the AntiChrist will perhaps even liken to the commission of the building of his ‘Bride’ and make a covenant with Israel to certify it with its sacrificial rites by way of the Temple.
Those that foolishly believe the Church, the Bride of Christ is to endure the Tribulation Period, regardless if its 3.5 or 7 years are amazingly erring against all that the LORD promised even to the Church of Philadelphia of an ‘Open Door’ of escape and so on. If at the point of the Rapture which is in actuality the Day of the Resurrection, spills over into the Tribulation Period, what advantage is there in being the Bride or ‘in Christ if it is not enough to be shielded from His Wrath? Most that believe in a pre-Wrath Rapture mistake the context of ‘after the tribulation of these days’ as being directed to the Church; it is not. The context was for Israel in the last days, in fact the last week, the prophetic week at that. The whole context of the discourse was predicated on Daniel’s prophecy…for they people and city. The Bride of Christ, by way of the Spiritual House and City whose foundations are being built by GOD is a different economy and has been the parenthetical age in-between the 69th and 70th week given to Daniel to sum up all prophecy.
The Blessed Hope
Thus in this interpretation, the ‘after the tribulation of these days’ have its correct meaning and application. For the Disciples of that generation it was applicable to when the LORD directed such to flee when Jerusalem was to be surrounded by armies. As with all Biblical prophecy, it had been immediate, progressive and future fulfillments. The same prophecy would parallel the last years just before His return as the circumstances would be the same as Jerusalem and the Temple would once again be surrounded and there would ‘tribulation’ abounding. To reiterate, the Church Age has been a unique time in that after the Rapture, the Tribulation Period will start the final chapter to finish the disciple of Israel that will cause them to see Him whom they have pierced at the return of Jesus.
This study is of the opinion that thus the Bride is extracted from the Church. This has been the uniqueness of the ‘Pentecostal Intermission’ of the Church Age. The Rapture is a reward as the Bride is to be without stain, blemish, or wrinkle. This is metaphorical for sin. As with the Israelites, sin was not tolerated in the camp. Sin is about death and thus why the Spiritual House Jesus is building are with those that are alive, not dead as the Church of Sardis was. Has the LORD changed this prerequisite of Holiness? No. The Rapture is not about a loss of salvation but sanctification or a lack thereof. There are those as the 5 Foolish Maidens that did not have enough ‘oil in the lamp’ to see their way to the trumpet call the Bride’s rapturing to her Groom’s house to be met in along the way. This is of course in keeping with the ancient Jewish wedding ritual.
This is the Blessed Hope, it is Jesus, but He blesses His Bride with the Hope of His coming to take her or ‘rapture’ her away. Paul clearly states the terms of the Rapture as an escape. If there is gap of time in-between this transference that remains to be seen. This study suggests that if the entire Tribulation Period is judgment, thus the Church cannot be here for that time. This study is of the interpretation that the Tribulation Period is all-encompassing of judgment corresponding to the Seal Judgments 7-7-7 types of wraths, etc. Spiritually speaking, the Jews as a covenant and called out assembly will have to go through the Time of Jacob’s Trouble to purify the waywardness and adultery as Israel reached the tipping point of perversion and deviance.
The point is that sadly many Christians will not make the Rapture based on this interpretation. It is Jesus who calls and qualifies but it is the responsibility of a Disciple to grow, confess sin and continually be renewed in the Spirit in mind; it is a process of practice. The stipulation is if Jesus knows you. This is what Jesus inferred in His teachings. Apparently, there are those that do much in Jesus’ Name but have no relationship with Jesus, enough so that Jesus knows you. How sad. Sadder is that it is exactly how Jesus portrayed the last Church Age would be spiritually speaking. It would be a ‘Christ-less’ Christianity where Jesus is outside knocking and wanting to be invited back in. America has reaching this spiritual tipping point. It has crossed the point where Jesus’ authority is outside in a lot of churches across America in particular as well as in Europe. Like Israel, many in these Last Days do equate America as reaching a spiritual decline as Laodicea. She has strayed away from her covenant and promise of faithfulness unto only 1 LORD, KING, and HUSBAND.
The Tipping Point
Many object to America and/or Europe being compared to Israel and/or Laodicea. This is perhaps a valid point, but an inference is allowed as its origin, beginning and government were based on ‘covenants’ in themselves as its ruling representatives pledged to the Sovereign LORD Jesus as King, i.e., as in the U.S. Constitution. Will tribulation come to America of the likes of the Middle East Christians? Tribulation as in persecution has been occurring all throughout the Church Age, why wouldn't it now in America? It has been the case for most Christians around the world. The power to overcome or to be an overcomer as so many have in the Church history is predicated on the level of spirituality measured by the type of knowledge Jesus has of one’s disposition and commitment. It is developed by having a spirit of humility and the operating fruit of the Holy Spirit.
An overcomer is a Disciple of Jesus that all the while has been carrying their cross in their lives and putting sin and the self to 'death' daily. Thus, if and when the actual call for a physical death comes, such are mentally and more importantly spiritually prepared for such a calling and will have peace. It is the Christian that has not been taught to 'suffer' and die to sin and self that will not want to '‘lose’' his/her life.... The point is that the People of Jesus should be.... are already 'dead' to the world. If per chance American Christians may face what the poor and dear Christians are suffering right now in the Middle East, Africa and Asia in particular...rape, slavery, hunger, thirst, torture, beheading, mutilations, burning alive...it will serve to refine the tarnished gold. The difference will be not being afraid because it will be a time for the LORD to work in amazing ways...and people will be looking to Christians for answers and comfort.
What will be the difference? What does this ‘peace’ look like? It is when Peter fell asleep in the dungeon about to be beheaded yet walks away with the help of Angels. It is when Paul had a time of communion in the core of the ship that was about to break into pieces, yet he was not and all that were with him were preserved because of Paul’s obedience to maintain his stance of faith and was at peace about it. When a Christian decided to 'serve' the LORD, like volunteering in the Army, one has to have made a conscious and mental note that he or she is as good as dead and the life and property of the body belongs to another. This is why a recruit the Army is called a ‘G.I’, General Issue; a soldier becomes property of the U.S. Army for example.
Ironically, a soldier relinquishes his or her constitutional rights to defend them for others. This was the attitude of the Moravian Brethren and those of the Chinese Inland Missions for example that went on missions realizing that it would or could be the last as many accepted the fact that they would not come back alive. Their lives, their whole lives, spirit, soul, and body were given to Jesus completely for the cause of the gospel. Did not Jesus give His all for His Bride? Should it be no different back at home or for the Bride of Christ every day? Christ Jesus did give the promise to His Disciples in light of persecution and tribulation to come, ‘fear Him that can kill the body and can cast it into Hell’. Thus, as the Christs are to return, as the Angels are to return, as the Prophets are to return, so will the LORD that was pierced return for His Bride and will return with His Bride.
He will set her aside as the culmination of the heavenly contention comes to a head and the final battles of Heaven are waged on Earth with mankind hanging in the eternal balance. The difference is that the Bride will accompany the King in this final battle that has already been won. For example, if ‘Virgin America’ is to go through much martyrdom, there is the risen LORD Jesus that gave His promise to John, the last surviving Apostle in Revelation 1:7-18. The resurrected Jesus, LORD who conquered death and hell, said to John, 'DON'T BE Afraid', I was dead and now I live and forever more....and I have the keys to Death and Hell. Jesus needed John to be alive so that he could be the witness to the Revelation of the risen Messiah and disperse the letters to the 7 Churches of Asia down to the 7th Church Age, which is today.
If Jesus wants one of His Disciples alive, there is no power in all that is that can take a Christian’s life until he or she is called. Christians are on His side....He is on His People’s side....In particular, if Christians in American are called to suffer as other Christians in the world here in America because of the Nation and Church's sins...it will only be a momentary affliction not to be compared to the GLORY that is to come. Yet many are sensing that the evacuation is at hand, the ARK is ready....the Church Age is about to end....the Royal Commission of the Church is about to end, the ‘Bride of Christ’ as the Spiritual Temple is about completed. What type of Stone are you?
‘I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial (Tribulation) that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the Earth.’ - Revelation 3:7-10
