The Messianic Age
Lasting 1000 Years
Then Jehovah’s Kingdom http://www.godsplan.org.uk/kingdom.htm

Isaiah 25 (KJV)
01 “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt Thee, I will praise Thy name; for Thou hast done wonderful things; Thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.”
02 “For Thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.”
03 “Therefore shall the strong people glorify Thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear Thee.”
04 “For Thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.”
05 “Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.”
06 “And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”
07 “And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.”
08 “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.”
09 “And it shall be said in that day, ‘Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.”
10 “For in this mountain shall the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.”
The kingdom of Moab—a name from Greek via Hebrew for “from the father”—is described in the Bible as what is present-day Jordan, bound by the Dead Sea on its west. According to the Bible, the Moabites often fought with the Israelites. As an acronym, MOAB refers to a massive bomb developed by the U.S. military.
11 “And He shall spread forth His hands in the midst of them, as He that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and He shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.”
12 “And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall He bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.”
The reason for the Messianic Age of 1000 years is to determine, of those chosen; how many got through unawares, that is why Satan must be released. Those who think they will have tricked Jehovah and Elohim into thinking they are earnest; and are not, have another thought coming their way, I can assure you.
The Fall. Genesis 3:15 (KJV) “And I will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman, [Hebrews] and between thy seed [Satan's] and her seed; [Hebrews] it shall bruise thy head, [Satan] and thou shalt bruise His heel [Christ and the crucifix].”
The One –World organisation http://www.godsplan.org.uk/oneworldsystemwithout_God2.htm is almost in place today controlling the four major pillars of society throughout the world.
E.U. and the O.A.S. These are the Economic—Religious—Education—Political systems. I think everyone is aware by now of the shortcomings; especially with the E.U Referendum today (more on this later), and changes to these systems over the years but feel powerless to do anything about it, however; there is a Plan, These four hidden dynasties are the negative side of God’s plan and are activated by the hand of Almighty God in these end times because mankind has turned away from Him and His living word. They have chosen the path of evil in the sight of God, and they will reap that, which they have sown. We were once one nation under God; but not anymore, Satan has seen to that. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Salvation.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/
The Kenite’s are recorded in the King James Bible. We will point out not only who they are, but also when they came into being. How they work, and why they are allowed to do what they are doing in these end times. This material is for those who are searching for the truth; therefore we will attempt to clarify any misunderstanding people may have in regard to what the Original Masoretic Text has revealed.
A page from the Aleppo Codex, showing the extensive marginal annotations.
By long tradition, a ritual Sefer Torah (Torah scroll) could contain only the Hebrew consonantal text – nothing added, nothing taken away. The Masoretic codices however, provide extensive additional material, called Masorah, to show correct pronunciation and cantillation (to chant or intone something, especially passages of the Hebrew Scriptures), protect against scribal errors, and annotate possible variants. The manuscripts thus include vowel points, pronunciation marks and stress accents in the text, short annotations in the side margins, and longer more extensive notes in the upper and lower margins and collected at the end of each book. These notes were added because the Masoretic recognized the possibility of human error in copying the Hebrew Bible. The Masoretic were not working with the original Hebrew manuscripts of the Bible and corruptions had already crept into the versions they copied.
The Hebrew text of the Old Testament is called the Masoretic Text because in its present form it is based upon the Masora—the Hebrew, textual tradition of the Jewish scholars known as the Masoretes (or Masorites). The Masoretes were rabbis who made it their special work to correct the faults that had crept into the text of the Old Testament during the Babylonian captivity, and to prevent, for the future, its being corrupted by any alteration. They first separated the apocryphal from the canonical books, and divided the latter into twenty-two books, being the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Then they divided each book into sections and verses. There is a great difference of opinion as to when the Masoretic Text was written, but it was probably completed in the 10th century AD. Several editions existed, varying considerably, but the received and authoritative text is that of Jacob ben-chayim ibn Adonijah, who carefully sifted and arranged the previous works on the subject. It was published in 1524.
Although the existing copies of the Masoretic Text date back only to the tenth century, two other important textual evidences bolster the confidence of textual critics that it is accurate. The first is the successive discoveries of manuscripts at Qumran by the Dead Sea since 1947. These revealed portions of manuscripts several centuries older than any previously known. The second is the comparison of the Masoretic text to the Greek translation called the Septuagint (or LXX), which was written around 200-150 B.C. The oldest existing manuscripts date back to the fourth century A.D. Both the Septuagint and the Dead Sea Scrolls reveal an amazing consistency with the Masoretic Text, assuring us that God was indeed divinely and sovereignly protecting His Word through thousands of years of copying and translating.

http://www.godsplan.org.uk/wheredowego%20.htm Matthew 24:6 (KJV) “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
The end is not yet, but it is not far off either. A chilling report circulating in the Kremlin today states that Russian President Medvedev and Chinese President Hu have issued an “urgent warning” to the United States that says if the Americans allow an Israeli nuclear attack upon Iran, “World War will be our response.” It does not matter who this fallen world heads are today, only the countries. Russia and China are communist countries who do not believe in God, hence their fierce abrogation’ (to end an agreement or contract formally and publicly), http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ethhaadham.htm It is better to rule on a fallen earth, than to serve in heaven (Satan). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/bibleprophecytheend.htm. To the west where God’s people are scattered http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Bereshith.htm. Fuelling Russian and Chinese fears are intelligence reports stating that Israel has moved over three-quarters of its Naval Forces through the Suez Canal and has assembled over 30 of its US-built fighter jets for a planned attack using American made “bunker busting” bombs and nuclear armed cruise missiles. Russian Military Analysts state in these reports that Israel first plans to use its US-built fighter jets to target Iran’s nuclear facilities, and upon a combined Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah “response”, that is said will “rain missiles down upon Israel”, Israeli submarines and surface vessels will unleash nuclear armed cruise missiles against Iran’s military, religious and political infrastructure.
Man is said to be made in God’s image, in so far as the image implies an intelligent being endowed with free will and self-movement: now that we have treated of the exemplar, i.e. God, and of those things which come forth from the power of God in accordance with His will; it remains of us to treat of His image, i.e. man http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ethhaadham.htm, inasmuch as he too is the principle of his actions, as having free-will and control of his actions. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/lastend.htm So; what does the Bible reveal about today’s man? Let us take a closer look at an impartial selection from the Dispensational Plan of E.W. Bullinger’s Companion Bible KJV, and The Summa Theologica Thomas Aquinas to discover what TRUTHS both revealed to us. To Roman Catholics, It is thus laid down in the Decretals (II, qu. vi, Si Quando): Whenever anyone intervene in a cause where life or state is at stake he must do so, not by a proxy, but in his own person; and state here has reference to freedom or servitude. Therefore it would seem that nothing differentiates a man’s state, except that which refers to freedom or servitude (slavery or anything resembling it). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/state.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Gen%201_1-1_5.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/persecution.htm
It is necessary to attribute providence to God. For all the good that is in created things has been created by God http://www.godsplan.org.uk/isgodthetruth%20.htm. In created things good is found not only as regards their substance, but also as regards their order towards an end and especially their last end, this good of order existing in things, is itself created by God. Since, however, God is the cause of all things by His intellect, and thus it behoves that the type of every effect should pre-exist in Him, as is clear from what has gone before. It is necessary that the type of the order of things towards their end should pre-exist in the Divine mind: and the type of things ordered towards an end is, properly speaking, providence. For it is the chief part of prudence, to which two other parts are directed—namely rememberance of the past http://www.godsplan.org.uk/dispensationalplan.htm Old and New Testaments, and understanding of the present; inasmuch as from the remembrance of what is past and the understanding of what is present, we gather how to provide for the future http://www.godsplan.org.uk/whatishappening2.htm.
Now it belongs to prudence (to the extent that is desirable or necessary) to direct other things towards an end whether in regard to oneself—as for instance, a man is said to be prudent (Careful or wise in handling practical matters; exercising good judgment or common sense), who orders well his acts towards the end of life—or in regard to others subject to him, in a family, city, or kingdom: in which sense it is said:
Matthew 24:45 (KJV) “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over His household, to give them meat in due season?”
In this way prudence or providence may suitably be attributed to God. For in God Himself there can be nothing ordered towards an end since He is the last end.
This type of order in things towards an end is therefore in God called providence. ‘Providence is the Divine type itself, seated in the Supreme Ruler; which disposeth all things;’ which disposition may refer either to the type of the order of things towards an end, or to the type of the order of parts in the whole. Though to take counsel may not be fitting to God, from the fact that counsel is an inquiry into matters that are doubtful, nevertheless, to give a command as to the order of things towards an end, the right reason of which He possesses, does belong to God;
Psalm 148:6 (KJV) He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: He hath made a decree which shall not pass [away]. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Kingdom2%20.htm
In this manner both prudence and providence belong to God. Although at the same time it may be said that the very reason of things to be done is called counsel in God; not because of any inquiry necessitated, but from the certitude of the knowledge, to which those who take counsel come by inquiry. Whence it is said:
Ephesians 1:11 (KJV) “In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will:”
Psalm 27:4 (KJV) “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple.”
A few days ago, millions of tons of super-heated gas shot off from the surface of the sun and hurtled 90 million miles toward Earth. The eruption, called a coronal mass ejection, wasn’t particularly powerful on the space-weather scale, but when it hit the Earth’s magnetic field it triggered the strongest geomagnetic storm seen for years. There wasn’t much disruption this time -- few people probably even knew it happened -- but it served as a reminder the sun has woken from a years-long slumber.
While invisible and harmless to anyone on the Earth’s surface, the geomagnetic waves unleashed by solar storms can cripple power grids, jam radio communications, bathe airline crews in dangerous levels of radiation and knock critical satellites off kilter.
The sun began a new 11-year cycle last year and as it reaches its peak in 2025 the spectre of powerful space weather creating havoc for humans grows, threatening chaos in a world that has become ever more reliant on technology since the last big storms hit 17 years ago. A recent study suggested hardening the grid could lead to $27 billion worth of benefits to the U.S. power industry.
“It is still remarkable to me the number of people, companies, who think space weather is Hollywood fiction,” said Caitlin Durkovich, a special assistant to U.S. President Joe Biden and senior director of resilience and response in the National Security Council, during a talk at a solar-weather conference last month.
The danger is not hypothetical. In 2017, a solar storm caused ham radios to turn to static just as the Category 5 Hurricane Irma was ripping through the Caribbean. In 2015, solar storms knocked out global positioning systems in the U.S. Northeast, a particular concern as self-driving cars become a reality. Airline pilots are at greater risk of developing cataracts when solar storms hit. Female crew see higher rates of miscarriages.
In March 1989, a solar storm over Quebec caused a province-wide outage that lasted nine hours, according to Hydro-Quebec’s website. A 2017 paper in the journal of the American Geophysical Union predicted blackouts caused by severe space weather could strike as much as 66% of the U.S. population, with economic losses reaching a potential $41.5 billion a day.
To head off such a catastrophe, President Barack Obama’s administration laid out a strategy to begin raising awareness of the dangers of massive solar storms and to assess the risks they pose. Last year, President Donald Trump signed the Pro-Swift bill into law, which aims to build up technology to improve forecasting and measurement of space weather events.
There is a debate among scientists about how much can be done to shield vulnerable parts of the planet’s infrastructure from the effects of solar storms. Steps such as using non-magnetic steel in transformers and installing more surge protectors in the grid could bolster resistance, but in the end the best defence against catastrophe might be better forecasting.
That would go a long way toward helping utilities prepare for shortages and making sure there are paths to back up their systems in case they lose power. In weeks, a new model developed by the University of Michigan will come online to help improve Earth-bound forecasting.
In the U.K., National Grid is building up its supply of spare transformers and conducting regular drills to deal with a major space weather event, said Mark Prouse, deputy director of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, a ministerial department.
Within the past 15 years, the U.S. and U.K. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Lineage4.htm have built space weather forecasting centres that deliver daily outlooks on what may be coming from the sun for airlines, power grids, satellite owners and anyone else threatened by solar flares. While Earth-bound observers can see explosive storms erupt on the sun, they cannnot tell the true nature of the threat -- exactly how potent it is -- until the blast reaches a set of satellites 1 million miles from the planet. At that point, there is only 60 to 90 minutes until it hits Earth. “Our ability to understand and predict the solar cycle is still very limited,” said William Murtagh, director of the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Centre.
Just as utilities can prepare for a severe thunderstorm by staging repair workers nearby, similar precautions could be taken ahead of a solar storm, according to Mark Olson, the reliability assessment manager for the North America Electric Reliability Corp., a non-profit answerable to the U.S. and Canadian governments (What nonsense).
“You have the potential for very large areas to have voltage instability,” Olson said. “Situational awareness is the key here, just like in terrestrial weather events.” (O.K but?).
Solar storms have their roots in an 11-year cycle that shifts the polarity of the Sun’s magnetic field. The magnetic forces at work on the sun get tangled during the process, and can punch out through the surface, sending the sun’s plasma into outer space and potentially triggering storms on Earth. The most powerful geomagnetic storm ever recorded resulted in the 1859 Carrington Event, when telegraph lines electrified, zapping operators and setting offices ablaze in North America and Europe. If a storm of that magnitude were to hit today, it would likely cut power to millions if not billions of people. “When I first started on this road and was briefed on space weather I raised an eyebrow,” said Prouse. “It is much more mainstream and some of the mystification is gone. You can now raise it as a risk and not get laughed at.”
That time is now upon us. We are in the time of Revelation 13. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/revelation_%20revealed.htm The Empire of the Beast is about to be formed and given power. The power is formed in two ways.
1. First a Regional system is formed. The Last King of the North in the Book of Daniel is formed out of the Empire of the Ten Toes. That occurs after the weakening and taking over of the US system by its pagan satanic societies. It is headed by the European Union, which was centred on the Club of Rome formed from March 1957. The UN is used as the cover for this world governing bureaucracy.
2. UN institutions have been driving the dishonest debate about climate change. The Australian public have been deceived into debating how to introduce huge non-revenue neutral taxes and regulations that will harm its global competitiveness. It is insanity. The politicians need to be swept from office but the Bible is clear that Satan will affect this system. It will happen in the near future. These “convenient idiots” of the NWO will sell the world into slavery not fully comprehending what it is they do.
The UN is not just concerned with Climate Change. They want entire bureaucratic control over consumption and foods based on false data over health and pharmaceuticals. Just as the beast of Revelation has a mark which is put upon the foreheads and hands of those who worship it, so too does God have a mark which is put upon the foreheads and hands of those who worship Him. This concept is examined in more detail in the paper The Role of the Fourth Commandment in the Historical Sabbath-keeping Churches of God. The mark is upon the forehead because that is where one’s thoughts are established. The mark is also on the hand because that is where the thoughts of the mind are exercised and put into action.
It is by following the commandments of God, both in mind and in action, that one receives the mark of God. As stated in: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/whatsahead.htm
Exodus 13:6-10 (KJV)
06 “Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.”
07 “Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.”
08 “And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, “This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/exodus34.htm
09 “And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD’S law may be in thy mouth:”
10 “Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in His season from year to year.”

Revelation 12:7—17 (KJV)
07 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon [Satan] fought and his angels,” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/beastintheenddays.htm
08 “And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.”
09 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
10 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God [Jehovah] day and night.” https://levendwater.org/companion/append4.html
11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
12 “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. ‘Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.’”
13 “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman [Mariam] which brought forth the man child [Jesus].”
14 “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
15 “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.”
16 “And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.”
17 “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/isgodthetruth%20.htm
It is very difficult for us to imagine a war in heaven; as the above verse in Revelation 12:7—17 (KJV) testifies.
It all began when Jehovah who was seeking companionship and debate, other than from the angels who He also created; Lucifer being one of them. This other world had been in existence for some time, but to us today; there is no, was no; indication anywhere of how long it had existed, only to know there was a war. Here lies the miracle of being led into all TRUTH by the requested Holy Spirit through prayer, as well as others including John Milton, 1667—who wrote Paradise Lost http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm an epic narrative in poetic format describing all that went before the Fall. Here then is the testament to his attempt, in those days to create a truthful word for the then population; and the population which is now to read and inwardly digest. I studied it and brought it up to date, from Olde English to make it easier for those who wanted to study, and will understand it much more.
It all began when Jehovah proclaimed to Elohim: “Let us make man in our image.”
Genesis 2:7 (KJV) “And the Lord God [Hebrew Elohim] formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
It was soon apparent to all who saw Adham http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ethhaadham.htm after He was created, that here was a man whom God had placed higher than the angels, who were to worship him as the “Image of God.” Michael went out and called all the angels saying: “Worship the image of God as the Lord God hath commanded.” And Michael himself worshipped first; then he called Lucifer and said, “Worship the image of God the Lord.”
1) “And with a heavy sigh, the devil spake: ‘O Adam! All my hostility, envy, and sorrow is for thee, since it is for thee that I have been expelled from my glory”
2) “Which I possessed in the heavens in the midst of the angels and for thee I was cast out in the earth.’”
3) “Adam answered, ‘What dost thou tell me? What have I done to thee or what is my fault against thee? ‘”
4) “Seeing that thou hast received no harm or injury from us, why dost thou pursue us?”
1) “The devil replied, “Adam, what dost thou tell me? It is for thy sake that I have been hurled from that place.”
2) “When thou wast formed, I was hurled out of the presence of God and banished from the company of the angels.”
3) “When God blew into thee the breath of life and thy face and likeness was made in the image of God, “
4) “Michael also brought thee and made (us) worship thee in the sight of God; and God the Lord spake: ‘Here is Adam. I have made thee in our image and likeness.’”
1) “And Michael went out and called all the angels saying: ‘Worship the image of God as the Lord God hath commanded.’”
2) “And Michael himself worshipped first; then he called me and said: ‘Worship the image of God the Lord.’”
3) “And I answered, ‘I have no (need) to worship Adam.’ And since Michael kept urging me to worship, I said to him, ‘Why dost thou urge me?’”
4) “I will not worship an inferior and younger being (than I). I am his senior in the creation, before he was made was I already made. It is his duty to worship me.”
1) “When the angels, who were under me, heard this, they refused to worship him.”
2) “And Michael saith, ‘Worship the image of God, but if thou wilt not worship him, the Lord God will be wrath with thee.’
3) “And I said, ‘If He be wrath with me, I will set my seat above the stars of heaven and will be like the Highest.’”
1) “And God the LORD was wrath with me and banished me and my angels from our glory; and on thy account were we expelled from our abodes into this world and hurled on the earth.”
2) “And straightaway we were overcome with grief, since we had been spoiled of so great glory.”
3) “And we were grieved when we saw thee in such joy and luxury.”
4) “And with guile (a cunning, deceitful, or treacherous quality) I cheated thy wife and caused thee to be expelled through her (doing) from thy joy and luxury, as I have been driven out of my glory.”
1) “When Adam heard the devil say this, he cried out and wept and spake:”
2) “O Lord my God, my life is in thy hands. Banish this Adversary far from me, who seeketh to destroy my soul, and give me his glory which he himself hath lost.”
3) “And at that moment, the devil vanished before him.”
4) “But Adam endured in his penance, standing for forty days (on end) in the water of Jordan.”
And Lucifer answered, “I have no need to worship Adham.” And since Michael kept urging me to worship, I said to him, ‘Why do you urge me? I will not worship an inferior and younger being (than I). I am his senior in the creation, before He was made was I already made. It is his duty to worship me. When the angels who were under me, heard this, they refused to worship him. “And Michael said, ‘Worship the image of God, but if you will not worship him, the Lord God will be wrath with you.” “If He be wrath me, I will set my seat above the stars of heaven and will be like the Highest.”
Here is the reason for the fall of our parents; and why we are here on this Fallen Earth. http://godsplan.org.uk/fleshage.htm
“God the LORD [Elohim] was wrath with me and banished me and my angels from our glory; and on your account where we expelled from our abodes into this world and hurled onto the earth. Straight away we were overcome with grief, since we had been spoiled of so great a glory. Moreover, we were grieved when we saw you in such joy and luxury. With guile I cheated your wife and caused you to be expelled through her (doing) from your joy and luxury, as I have been driven out from my glory.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/system.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/persecution.htm
The whole of God’s Word is for everyone to read, and to study, in an effort to disprove the Word for themselves (if they can), or; to discover the TRUTH which has been there all the time “since the world began”. However, to discover the truth one must make a concerted effort. (Mutually contrived or agreed on a concerted effort). It is of little use to heed advice from peers, who; through arrogance, or laziness have only a limited; or useless contribution to make. This will certainly, and irretrievably; affect your future, as well as inflict even more confusion upon you, and you will find it is Satan, the prince of this world, which causes confusion, not God. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/faithfuland%20true.htm
However, that spirits should return from bodies which they had departed so long that the very bones were bare and bleached—impossible! Ezekiel’s thou knowest is really a way of avoiding the answer “No!”
Jehovah bids him to prophesy to the bones: He will cause spirit to enter them; they shall be clothed with human bodies, and live. The prophet thus bidden to “launch out into the deep”—obeys. The dead bones stir with a rattling noise, each finding its fellow, and their bodies are re-formed. Yet they lack life. The prophet at Jehovah’s bidding summons spirit from the four winds—and the bodies pulsate again with life, the army stands once more in serried ranks as before its destruction.
Then Jehovah explains the vision.
The bones are Judah (Southern Israel) and Samaria (Northern Israel) The exiles are wont to say, “We are as nations almost dead—so near to death, reduced almost to bleached bones, that we can never live again.” But Jehovah will renew their life and restore them once again in Palestine. Very noteworthy in this splendid vision is that the miraculous result is achieved not by direct fiat of Jehovah but through the instrumentality of the PROPHETIC WORD, so mighty that its utterance insures the result.
The Symbol of the Two Sticks.
Ezekiel is to take two sticks—probably shaped like sceptres, (or so Schmidt suggests) the two pieces of a sceptre-shaped stick, and previously broken—inscribing on one “Judah and the southern tribes,” on the other “Joseph and the northern tribes.” He is to join them both together, and when he is asked the meaning of this symbolic action, is to say that it foreshows the reunion by Jehovah of Israel and Judah. They shall be one kingdom with one king, a new David. They shall be cleansed and righteous, and they and their descendants shall dwell forever in Palestine. Jehovah shall make a new covenant with them, prosper them, and show the world that they are His chosen people, by establishing His sanctuary permanently within their borders.
Those who read this book, and believe what God has here written for our learning, will not be troubled with all the puerile guesses and trifling comments of the natural man, but understand something of the grand revelations which can be only spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 2:14 `But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of
for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Paraphrase: “Yet simply as the Divine message in Christ has been presented in Corinth, let no one imagine that simplicity precludes profundity (the quality or state of being profound or deep) To men of ripe understanding we impart wisdom: not indeed as this passing world understands that term, nor the dark powers who are in control of this world, though their days are numbered.
To men of mature experience we utter as an open secret God’s hidden purpose which He cherished before the worlds were formed with a view to us sharing in His glorious life. Had the dark powers who influence human destiny been aware of this Divine purpose they would never have committed the monstrous folly of putting the Lord of Glory to the shameful death of a slave. They did not fathom the bold magnificence of the method of God’s Wisdom—the crucifixion; the path to glory—so in their craft and force they overreached themselves. It is otherwise with us. The wisdom that we impart consists of “Things which eye never saw, and ear never heard, Things which never entered into the heart of man, All that God prepared for those who love Him’. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/internalspirit.htm
1 Corinthians 2:9 (KJV) “But as it is written, ‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.’”
To us who have this discerning love God has unveiled His secrets through that Spirit who searches and discloses the deep designs of God. For as a man’s secret thoughts are hidden from his fellow men and are known only to his own spirit, so only the Spirit of God perceives the thoughts of God. However, it is that Spirit which issues forth from God Himself we have received, not the spirit which animates and blinds worldly-minded men. This has God added to all His other lavish gifts, so that we might know what is ours in Christ.
The language in which we make this revelation known is not that acquired from human philosophy but that learned in the school of the Spirit, for we need a Spiritual medium to convey Spiritual TRUTH.
