Isaiah 52: For this is what Jehovah says: “You were sold for nothing, +And without money you will be repurchased.”+

  For this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: “At first my people went down to Egypt to live there as foreigners;+

Then Assyria oppressed them without cause.”  “What, then, should I do here?” declares Jehovah. “For my people were taken for nothing. Those ruling over them keep howling in triumph,”+ declares Jehovah.

Jeremiah 29 These are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the rest of the elders among the exiled people, the priests, the prophets, and all the people, whom Nebuchadnezzar had taken into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon after King Jeconiah,+ the queen mother,*+ the court officials, the princes of Judah and Jerusalem, and the craftsmen and the metalworkers* had gone out of Jerusalem.+ He sent the letter by the hand of El·aʹsah the son of Shaʹphan+ and Gem·a·riʹah the son of Hil·kiʹah, whom King Zed·e·kiʹah+ of Judah sent to Babylon to King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar of Babylon. It said: “This is what Jehovah of armies, the God of Israel, says to all the exiled people, whom I have caused to go into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon,  ‘Build houses and live in them. Plant gardens and eat their fruit.  Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Become many there, and do not decrease And seek the peace of the city to which I have exiled you, and pray in its behalf to Jehovah, for in its peace you will have peace.+  For this is what Jehovah of armies, the God of Israel, says: “Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are among you deceive you,+and do not listen to the dreams that they are dreaming.  For ‘they are prophesying lies to you in my name. I have not sent them,’+ declares Jehovah.”’”10  “For this is what Jehovah says, ‘When 70 (7000 years in reality?) years at Babylon are fulfilled, I will turn my attention to you,+ and I will make good my promise by bringing you back to this place.’+11  “‘For I well know the thoughts that I am thinking toward you,’ declares Jehovah, ‘thoughts of peace, and not of calamity, +to give you a future and a hope.+ 12  And you will call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.’+13  “‘You will seek me and find me,+ for you will search for me with all your heart.+ 14  And I will let you find me,’ +declares Jehovah. ‘And I will gather your captives and collect you together out of all the nations and places to which I have dispersed you,’+ declares Jehovah. ‘And I will bring you back to the place from which I caused you to go into exile.’+15  “But you have said, ‘Jehovah has raised up prophets for us in Babylon.’16  “For this is what Jehovah says to the king sitting on the throne of David+ and to all the people dwelling in this city, your brothers who have not gone with you into exile (black magicians)17  ‘This is what Jehovah of armies says: “Here I am sending against them (?) the sword, the famine, and the pestilence,*+ and I will make them like rotten* figs that are so bad they cannot be eaten.”’+18  “‘And I will pursue them with the sword,+ with famine, and with pestilence, and I will make them an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth,+ and a curse, and an object of astonishment, something to whistle at,+ and a reproach among all the nations to which I disperse them,+ 19  because they have not listened to my words that I sent to them with my servants the prophets,’ declares Jehovah, ‘sending them again and again.’*+“‘But you have not listened,’+ declares Jehovah.

Who will do this? The Lord Himself.

Sending the sword against who? Them. Who are them? Good question. We do not know. It might be the idols, because there is said in the Scriptures that God will destroy and annihilate the fake hand made gods as well as the phallic fake gods, the gods will be beheaded it is stated in the correct translations. Famine and Pestilence might be for the people worshipping idols. Anyway people are not supposed to take decisions in their hands. This is by the way not decided towards the exiles. The exiles will be saved.

20  “Therefore, hear the word of Jehovah, all you exiled people, whom I have sent away from Jerusalem to Babylon. 21  This is what Jehovah of armies, the God of Israel, says concerning Ahab the son of Kolaah and concerning Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, who are prophesying lies (false prophets) to you in my name,+ ‘Here I am giving them (the false prophets) into the hand of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, and he will strike them down before your eyes. 22  And what happens to them (false prophets) will become a curse spoken by all the exiles of Judah in Babylon: “May Jehovah make you like Zedekiah and like Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in the fire!” 23  for they have acted disgracefully in Israel,+ committing adultery with the wives of their neighbors and speaking false words in my name that I did not command them. “ “I am the One who knows, and I am a witness,”+ declares Jehovah.’”

Micah 5:10-15 “The day is coming”     —God’s Decree— “When there will be no more war. None.     I’ll slaughter your war horses and demolish your chariots. I’ll dismantle military posts     and level your fortifications. I’ll abolish your religious black markets,     your underworld traffic in black magic. I will smash your carved and cast gods     and chop down your PHALLIC posts. No more taking control of the world,     worshiping what you do or make. I’ll root out your sacred sex-and-power centers  and destroy the God-defiant. In raging anger, I’ll make a clean sweep  of godless nations who haven’t listened.” Phallic idols as well as all kinds of idols are supposed to be beheaded, not people. There are Bibles and there are Bibles, there are verses and there are verses, watch out, study many different interpretations and translations,  in different Bibles, so you won’t be mislead. Think about what is logic. What is logic in one book, might be unlogic on the next page in the same book. This does not mean you have to condemn the entire choice of Bible, because this problem you will find in every Bible. You need many Bibles to compare.

New World Translation Amos 9:1   I saw Jehovah stationed above the altar, and he said: “Strike the head of the pillar, and the thresholds will shake. Cut them off at the head, and I will kill the last of them with the sword. No one who flees will get away, and no one trying to escape will succeed.

Reference Bible Amos 9:1  I saw Jehovah stationed above the altar, and he proceeded to say: “Strike the pillar head (penis-head-god) so that the thresholds will rock. And cut them off at the head, all of them (phallic-gods). And the last part (last part of the penis-statue) of them I shall kill with the sword itself. No one fleeing of them will make good his flight, and no one escaping of them will make his getaway. (WHO SHALL NOT BE ABLE TO ESCAPE WITH WHAT? THE DAMNED DEVILISH gods OF COURSE will people not be able to escape with, the idols will be beheaded). Byington

Amos 9:1  I saw the Lord where he had taken his stand by the altar, and he said “Strike the pillar-head and let the ceiling shake, knock them (who are THEM?) off on the heads (PHALLIC-false-gods (penis-gods) of them (IDOLS) all, and the last of them (FALSE GODS).

I will kill with the sword: they (FAKE handmade gods) shall not have a fugitive (no human being will be allowed to flee with the fake head-gods) run away nor a refugee get to safety.

The Chosen People?

It seems as Shem is mixed with (Canaan) Ham and Japheth, because they were assimilating during the ancient times a lot. No more is only Israel the only chosen one, but everybody has the possibility to be the chosen ones.

But one very important issue is:

Stay away from black magics, idols, demons, voodoo, astrology, speaking to the dead ones (= demons trolling themselves to the dead ancestors).

Why were the Israeli people the chosen ones?

The reason to why the Israelites were the chosen ones, especially the tribe of Jews was and still is, simply because they were deeply devoted to the Scriptures and there are several Scriptures Bible and Apocrypha, written by the descendants of Shem, but also some Scriptures were written by the Gentiles  consisting of Canaan and Japheth who were citizens of Israel and some of them were mixed with Israel, but they followed Israelites’ 10 commandments.

For example the Gospel of Luke seems to be written by a Gentile named Luke who was a Doctor.

People of Canaan (Hamites) and Japhet (Egyptians) were the ones who were worshiping most of the time other goods.

But the Israelites worshiped mostly the Right God Yah(weh).

The Israelites became curious on their neighbors, back and forth. Begging Yah for forgiveness when punished, promised to worship The True Creator of The Whole Universe One and Only God Yahweh again. Then the Israelites became curious over and over again to pray to other gods in order to get the magics. Everytime they did so, they were punished by being defeated and becoming slaves/war-prisoners to the enemies Ham/Japheth.

The Israelites were supposed to help Canaan and Japheth to stay away from black magics/praying to idols.

The Israelites are still Good God Yahweh’s chosen people including the Jews. There will be remnants of all the kids of Noah. But it seems as only the ones who are not into black magics. Proof? Yes there are several proves in the Scriptures.

Yeshua was sent to the Jews because they have established the synagogue (kind of a church) and were into the Scriptures. So the Jews were supposed to spread Yeshua’s teachings to the rest of the Israel and the Gentiles, who were citizens of Israel but also to tall the Gentiles in other countries and all of these groups were supposed to spread Yeshua’s Gospel to the rest of the World.

In the Old Testament there was heavenly worshiping of idols by the Canaanites but also by Japhetites, therefor Israel was allowed by the Great God God to take over Canaan and erase someof the Canaanites through rituals by the help of  Good God’s Angel and sometimes chasedaway the Canaanites, but they still could be their neighbours in different areas on the continent Canaan.

The Devil is around and fooling people to think that it is Only Israel who is not allowed to perform evil magics. But it is not the truth.  If Israel is not allowed to be into black magics, then it also means that the Ishmaelites and the Canaanites are not allowed either. There is proof! The Devil is not any god, nor are the demons that, even though they want to seem so. These creatures a la undercover Gremlings are Liars and Betrayers.´They betray with YingYang religion for example, they know that people mostly would like to become good people, so he is fooling people to thinkl that everything is under control, peace and if as long as human beings perform 50 % good the it is just fine.

The Devil together with his hosts/demons HATE human beings.

Romans 9:22-33 Expanded Bible (EXB)

22 ·It is the same way with God. He [L What if he…?] wanted to show his ·anger [wrath] and to let people see his power. But he ·patiently stayed with [endured with great patience] those ·people he was angry with [L vessels/objects of wrath]—people who were ·made ready [prepared] to be destroyed. 23 He waited with patience so that he could make known ·his rich glory [the riches of his glory] to the ·people who receive his [L vessels/objects of] mercy. He has prepared these people ·to have his glory [to experience his glory; L for glory], 24 and we are those people whom God called. He called us not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles. 25 As ·the Scripture [or God] says in Hosea:

“I will ·say, ‘You are my people’ [call them ‘my people’]
    to those who were not my people.
And I will ·show my love [call her ‘beloved’]
    to ·those people [her] I did not love [Hos. 2:1,23; C in Hosea, a reference to apostate Israel; here applied to the Gentiles].”
26 “And in the same place where they were called,
    ‘You are not my people,’
there they will be called
    ‘children of the living God [Hos. 1:10].’”

27 And Isaiah cries out about Israel:

[L Though] The ·people [L children; sons] of Israel are numbered
    like the grains of sand ·by [or of] the sea.
But only a few of them [the remnant] will be saved,
28     because the Lord will quickly and completely ·punish the people [carry out/execute his sentence; settle his account] on the earth [Is. 10:22–23].”

29 It is as Isaiah said:

“If the Lord ·All-Powerful [of Hosts; of Heaven’s Armies]
    had not ·allowed a few of our descendants to live [left us offspring/seed],
We would have become like Sodom
    and would resemble Gomorrah [Is. 1:9; C OT cities destroyed by God because of their wickedness; Gen. 19].”

30 ·So what does all this mean [What, then, shall we say]? Those who are Gentiles ·were not trying to make themselves right with God [L did not pursue righteousness], but they ·were made right with God [obtained righteousness] ·because of their faith [that is, a righteousness that is by faith]. 31 The people of Israel tried to ·follow [pursue] a law ·to make themselves right with God [L of righteousness]. But they did not ·succeed [reach/attain it], 32 [L Why?] because they tried to make themselves right by ·the things they did [works] instead of ·trusting in God to make them right [L by faith]. They stumbled over the stone that causes people to stumble. 33 As it is written in the Scripture:

[L Look; T Behold] I will put in ·Jerusalem [L Zion;C a poetic term for Jerusalem and symbolizing the nation Israel] a stone that causes people to stumble,
    a rock that makes them fall [Is. 8:14].
Anyone who ·trusts [believes; has faith] in him will never be ·disappointed [put to shame; disgraced; Is. 28:16].”

Hosea 2:23 Expanded Bible (EXB)

23 I will plant ·my people [L her for myself] in the land,
    and I will show pity to the one I had called not shown pity [L Lo-Ruhamah; 1:6–7].
I will say, ‘You are my people’
    to those I had called ‘·not my people [L Lo-Ammi; 1:9].’
And they will say to me, ‘You are our God.’”

Hosea 2:23 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon Loruhamah,[a] and I will say to Loammi,[b] Thou art my people; and he shall say, Thou art my God.

Footnotes:

  1. Hosea 2:23 her that had not obtained mercy

  2. Hosea 2:23 those who were not my people

LO-RUHAMAH (Meaning “Not Shown Mercy; not having obtained mercy; not pitied)

Scripture ReferencesHosea 1:6, 8

Name Meaning—Not pitied or not have mercy

Nothing beyond the name of the bearer is known. She was the daughter of Hosea and Gomer and her symbolic name was applied to Israel from whom God had withdrawn His loving compassion because of the nation’s spiritual whoredoms (Hosea 2:1, 23; Romans 9:25).

LO-AMMI meaning Meaning “Not My People.”

AMPC Hosea 2:1 [Hosea], say to your brethren, Ammi [or You-are-my-people], and to your sisters, Ruhamah [or You-have-been-pitied-and-have-obtained-mercy].

TLB Hosea 2:1 “O Jezreel, rename your brother and sister. Call your brother Ammi (which means ‘Now you are mine’); name your sister Ruhamah (‘Pitied’), for now God will have mercy upon her!

 4. as my own in the land. I will have pity on ‘No Pity’ (Lo-Ruhamah). I will say to ‘Not My People’ (Lo-Ammi), ‘You are my people!’ And he will say, ‘You are my God!'”

 Hosea 2:1-2 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Interesting: Here it is said that a huge amount of Israel will become God’s People and nothing is said about Gentiles. But also one must remember that there are also Israelites from the past generations, who are not on this earth right now.

But this does not mean that no Gentiles will be welcomed, because it seems as there will be remnants of all nations of the Noah’s kids, who are not into black magics.  Some amount of the black magicians  who are into Ying-Yang and feel pity for the remnants/mind-controlled ones, but who won’t cease with black magics in time, then if they are lucky, they might become well-treated servants to the remnants of all nations who are not into black magics???

Because if the remnants will be saved, then what will happen to the rest of all other people who are left? Those who plan hide themselves in caves?

Hosea 2:1-2 Tree of Life Version (TLV) 

Restoring the Covenant Promises

2:1  “Yet the number of Bnei-Yisrael will be like the sand of the sea,
    which cannot be measured or counted.   
Instead of ‘You are not My people’ being said to them,
they will be called ‘Children of the living God.’
Then the descendants of Judah and descendants of Israel will be gathered together. They will appoint themselves one head
    And they will go up from the land.
For the day of Jezreel will be great.

Hosea 2:1-2 The Voice (VOICE)

(Jezreel means “God sows [seed].” He will bring the people back to their land, and they’ll never be uprooted again.)

2:1 Eternal One (to the future reunited people):Give your brothers a new name: My People;
        and give your sisters a new name too: Shown Mercy.
    I’m going to publicly charge your mother,Israel, with being unfaithful to Me.
        But you must bring the accusation against her—you bring it—
    Because she’s not My wife anymore and I’m not her husband.

(Israel was unfaithful to God by worshiping the fertility gods of her neighbors and forging diplomatic and military alliances with these foreign nations.)

Compare:

New International Version (NIV)

Romans 9:27-33  Isaiah cries out concerning Israel:

“Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea,
    only the remnant will be saved.
28 For the Lord will carry out
    his sentence on earth with speed and finality.”[d]

29 It is just as Isaiah said previously:

“Unless the Lord Almighty
    had left us descendants,
we would have become like Sodom,
    we would have been like Gomorrah.”[e]

Israel’s Unbelief30 What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith; 31 but the people of Israel, who pursued the law as the way of righteousness, have not attained their goal. 32 Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone. 33 As it is written:

“See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes people to stumble
    and a rock that makes them fall,
    and the one who believes in him will never be put to shame.”

…………………………………………………….

Does Hosea 2:1-2 contradict Romans 9:27-33?

 Accordig to the Scriptures it is said that Lo-Ruhamah and Lo-Ammi are both Israel, not Gentiles and Judah is a special tribe, that will come together with Israel. But still it seems as it is only about those who are not into magics who will be saved. so whatever you are, whether you are Gentile=Japheth or Canaan or a mix with Israel, does not matter what you are, to be on the safe side, get rid of the black magics because they cause an unfair and devilish system.

Yeshua welcomes all descendants of Noah who are not into black magics and are willing to follow His path, but there might be some exceptions, who knows? The best is to stay on the safe side. Those who won’t give up the black magics, either they will be taken away by the angels as a “weed” or put into tribulation?

 

Matthew 15:21-28J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

A gentile’s faith in Jesus

21-22 Jesus left that place and retired into the Tyre and Sidon district. There a Canaanite woman from those parts came to him crying at the top of her voice, “Lord, have pity on me! My daughter is in a terrible state—a devil has got into her!”

23 Jesus made no answer, and the disciples came up to him and said, “Do send her away—she’s still following us and calling out.”

24 “I was only sent,” replied Jesus, “to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

25 Then the woman came and knelt at his feet. “Lord, help me,” she said.

26 “It is not right, you know,” Jesus replied, “to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.”      

(Biblical Food, that the Israelites as well as The Jews were deeply engaged with and they founded The Synagogue)

(dogs = dogon = Philistines = idol-worshipers = more difficult to convert them into worshiping One and Only Good God our Creator and make them follow Yeshua’s teachings, but not impossible)

27 Yes, Lord, I know, but even the dogs live on the scraps that fall from their master’s table!” (= even the “dogs” have the right to be saved, if they believe in Yeshua)

28 “You certainly don’t lack faith,” returned Jesus, “it shall be as you wish.” And at that moment her daughter was cured.

Now is it not amazing, that the woman who was not a Jew and nor an  Israelite, answered Yeshua also in parables when Yeshua made a statement as a parable?  Both of them understood each other through parables!

144,000 Sealed

Revelation 7:14

1After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth (Flat Earth?

(Maybe Cubic, Quadratic instead of Circular?),

holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. 2Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: 3“Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” 4Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.

5From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,

from the tribe of Reuben 12,000,

from the tribe of Gad 12,000,

6from the tribe of Asher 12,000,

from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000,

The Great Multitude in White Robes

9After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10And they cried out in a loud voice:

“Salvation belongs to our God,

who sits on the throne,

and to the Lamb.”

11All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12saying:“Amen!

Praise and glory

and wisdom and thanks and honor

and power and strength

be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”

13Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”

14I answered, “Sir (True God Yah), You know.”

And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore,

“they are before the throne of God

and serve him day and night in his temple;

and he who sits on the throne

will shelter them with his presence.

16‘Never again will they hunger;

never again will they thirst.

The sun will not beat down on them,’a

nor any scorching heat.

17For the Lamb at the center of the throne

will be their shepherd;

‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’b

‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’c ”

The Lamb and the 144,000

Revelation 14:1Then I saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him were 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. 2And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of mighty ocean waves or the rolling of loud thunder. It was like the sound of many harpists playing together.

14:3This great choir sang a wonderful new song in front of the throne of God and before the four living beings and the twenty-four elders. No one could learn this song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. 4They have kept themselves as pure as virgins,a following the Lamb wherever he goes. They have been purchased from among the people on the earth as a special offeringb to God and to the Lamb. 5 They have told no lies; they are without blame.

Isaiah 28:10-19 Expanded Bible (EXB)

10 So ·they make fun of the Lord’s prophet and say [orthe Lord must repeat himself again and again; L For it is]:
    “·A command here, a command there [T Precept upon precept, precept upon precept].
    ·A rule here, a rule there [T Line upon line, line upon line; C Hebrew: tsav latsav tsav latsav / kav lakav kav lakav; it may be the people mocking the words of the prophets as nonsense; or it may refer to God repeating himself because the people will not listen].
    A little lesson here, a little lesson there [L A little there, a little there].”
11 So the Lord will use ·strange words[mocking/stammering lips] and foreign ·languages[tongues]
    to speak to these people.
12 God said to them,
“Here is a place of rest;
    let the ·tired people [weary] come and rest.
This is the place of peace.”
    But the people would not listen.
13 So the words of the Lord will be,
“·A command here, a command there [T Precept upon precept, precept upon precept].
    ·A rule here, a rule there [T Line upon line, line upon line].
    ·A little lesson here, a little lesson there [L A little there, a little there; C see v. 10; God now uses the same words to mimic the foreign language of the Assyrian invaders].”
They will fall back and be ·defeated [broken];
    they will be ·trapped and captured [snared and taken].

14 So listen to the Lord’s message, you who ·brag[mock; scoff; Prov. 1:22; 9:7, 8, 12; 13:1],
    you ·leaders [L who rule this people] in Jerusalem.
15 You say, “We have made an ·agreement [treaty; covenant] with death;
    we have a ·contract [agreement; pact] with ·death[or the grave; L Sheol].
When ·terrible punishment [an overwhelming scourge/flood] passes by,
    it won’t ·hurt [touch; reach] us.
Our lies ·will keep us safe [L are our refuge],
    and ·our tricks [falsehood] ·will hide us [is our refuge/shelter].”

16 Because of these things, this is what the Lord God says:

“I will ·put [lay; establish] a stone in the ground in ·Jerusalem [L Zion; C the location of the Temple],
    a tested stone.
·Everything will be built on this important and precious rock [L …a precious cornerstone for a firm foundation].
    Anyone who trusts in it will never ·be disappointed[or panic; waver; be shaken; Rom. 9:33; 1 Pet. 2:6].
17 I will use justice as a measuring line
    and ·goodness [righteousness] as the ·standard[plumb line].
The lies you ·hide behind [take refuge in] will be ·destroyed [swept away] as if by hail.
    ·They [Your hiding place/shelter] will be washed away as if in a flood.
18 Your ·agreement [covenant; treaty] with death will be ·erased [annulled];
    your contract with ·death [or the grave; L Sheol] will not ·help you [stand; last].
When ·terrible punishment [overwhelming scourge/flood] comes,
    you will be ·crushed [beaten down] by it.
19 Whenever ·punishment [L it] comes, it will take you away.
    It will come morning after morning;
    it will ·defeat you [sweep through] by day and by night.
Those who understand this punishment will be terrified.”
