Thy Kingdom Come II

The objective of this study is to analyze and understand YAH's process of ushering in the theocratic age, which will restore man and the earth to its original state, a state of paradise and immortality. In this study we will look at the cause of the much awaited tribulation, also called the day of YAH's vengeance, or great tribulation. We will be looking at the pre-judgment, second advent, the theocratic age, and the heavenly kingdom.

  • Our the righteous promised a place in heaven?
  • Will the righteous be raptured before the tribulation period?
  • What do the dragon and beast represent in prophecy?
  • What is the restoration period?
  • What part does the patriarch King David play in end time prophecy?
  • How long is the coming tribulation period?
  • When will the two houses of Yisrael be reunited?
  • What is the second advent?
  • What takes place during the tribulation period?
  • What process is YAH going to use to redeem his people?
  • What will it be like during the theocratic age?
  • What happens at the end of the millennial reign?

In the first part of this study, we discussed what YAH's process is for ushering in the theocratic age, which all his faithful followers are waiting for. Will open this study with what the patriarchs envisioned.

    Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen. For by this, the elders obtained testimony. By faith, we understand that the universe has been framed by the word of Elohim, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible. By faith, Abel offered to Elohim a more excellent sacrifice than Kayin, through which he had testimony given to him that he was righteous, Elohim testifying with respect to his gifts; and through it he, being dead, still speaks. By faith, Chanokh was taken away, so that he wouldn't see death, and he was not found, because Elohim translated him. For he has had testimony given to him that before his translation he had been well pleasing to Elohim. Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to Elohim must believe that he exists, and that HE IS A REWARDER OF THOSE WHO SEEK HIM. (Hebrews 11:1-6 RNEB)

He is a rewarder of those who seek him - This is not talking about the masses who are content to skim the scriptures, but those who research the law, the prophets, and secular material with the intent of understanding this great deity to learn how to serve him properly.

    By faith, Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which he was to receive for an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he went. By faith, he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a land not his own, dwelling in tents, with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked for the city which has the foundations, whose builder and maker is Elohim. By faith, even Sarah herself received power to conceive, and she bore a child when she was past age, since she counted him faithful who had promised. Therefore as many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as innumerable as the sand which is by the sea shore, were fathered by one man, and him as good as dead. THESE ALL DIED IN FAITH, NOT HAVING RECEIVED THE PROMISES, BUT HAVING SEEN THEM AND EMBRACED THEM FROM AFAR, AND HAVING CONFESSED THAT THEY WERE STRANGERS AND PILGRIMS ON THE EARTH. For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own. IF INDEED THEY HAD BEEN THINKING OF THAT COUNTRY FROM WHICH THEY WENT OUT, THEY WOULD HAVE HAD ENOUGH TIME TO RETURN. (Hebrews 11:8-15 RNEB)

If their heart was in that country they may have a mind to return, this is one of the problems with partaking in the electoral system, by voting we are participating in creating a policy and process to change the system, which our heart is not supposed to be focused on in the first place. An example of this would be Lot's wife, whose heart was in the system of Amorah.

    BUT NOW THEY DESIRE A BETTER COUNTRY, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore Elohim is not ashamed of them, to be called their Elohim, for he has prepared a city for them. (Hebrews 11:16 RNEB)

These people saw the promises far off, they were looking to the city Elohim built for the end of the millennium, the New Yerushalayim.

    I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more. I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from Elohim, MADE READY LIKE A BRIDE ADORNED FOR HER HUSBAND. (Revelation 21:1-2 RNEB)

This city was made by the divine order, by the command of YAH.

    Let us fear therefore, lest perhaps anyone of you should seem to have come short of a promise of entering into his rest. For indeed we have had good news preached to us, even as they also did, but the word they heard didn't profit them, because it wasn't mixed with faith by those who heard. For we who have believed do enter into that rest, even as he has said, "As I swore in my wrath, they will not enter into my rest;" although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he has said this somewhere about the seventh day, "Elohim rested on the seventh day from all his works;" and in this place again, "They will not enter into my rest." Seeing therefore it remains that some should enter therein, and they to whom the good news was before preached failed to enter in because of disobedience, he again defines a certain day, today, saying through David so long a time afterward (just as has been said), "Today if you will hear his voice, don't harden your hearts." For if Yahoshua had given them rest, he would not have spoken afterward of another day. There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of Elohim. For he who has entered into his rest has himself also rested from his works, as Elohim did from his. LET US THEREFORE GIVE DILIGENCE TO ENTER INTO THAT REST, LEST ANYONE FALL AFTER THE SAME EXAMPLE OF DISOBEDIENCE. (Hebrews 4:1-11 RNEB)

All the patriarchs had faith in the promise, they said the were strangers and pilgrims in the land, speaking about the earth. These were all men of means, who by walking in righteousness saw the rewards of righteousness in their land, David himself as king of Yisrael considered himself a stranger and pilgrim. They were looking at things differently, they had a much larger vision, they were thinking universal sovereign rest, a theocratic kingdom that ruled over the earth.

In the first part of this study, we started with the tribulation, which Yahshua and the prophets all communicated would take place on the earth. This great tribulation is triggered by a political and ecclesiastical power which will rise in the evening of the coming theocratic age and last for three and a half years. During this period a number of events will be taking place, the political and ecclesiastical power will be pushing a name, number, and mark on the world, there will be a pre-judgment, plagues upon those who receive the mark of the beast, the assembly of Elohim will be in the wilderness, and there will be two witnesses in Yerushalayim witnessing to the world to return to the commandments of Elohim and be saved. Immediately, after the tribulation Yahshua will return for second advent judgment, which will cut off the wicked people from the earth and bring global peace. These events lead us to the continuation of the second advent judgment and the completion of this study.

This is the second advent judgment which occurs after the tribulation period, and represents the time period Yahshua was referring to when he said:

    “And immediately after the distress of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. “And then the sign of the Son of Adam shall appear in the heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Adam coming on the clouds of the heaven with power and much esteem. “And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. (Matthew 24:29-31 ISR)

Lets look at how this was written in the books of the prophets.

    Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Botzrah? this who is glorious in his clothing, marching in the greatness of his strength? I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Why are you red in your clothing, and your garments like him who treads in the wine vat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the peoples there was no man with me: yes, I trod them in my anger, and trampled them in my wrath; and THEIR LIFEBLOOD IS SPRINKLED ON MY GARMENTS, AND I HAVE STAINED ALL MY CLOTHING. FOR THE DAY OF VENGEANCE WAS IN MY HEART, AND THE YEAR OF MY REDEEMED IS COME. I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore my own arm brought salvation to me; and my wrath, it upheld me. I trod down the peoples in my anger, and made them drunk in my wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth. (Isaiah 63:1-6 RNEB)

Were discussing the second advent judgment that precedes the theocratic age, so we can understand the process that YAH will use to redeem his people.

    I looked, and behold, a white cloud; and on the cloud one sitting like a son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. Another angel came out from the temple, crying with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, "SEND FORTH YOUR SICKLE, AND REAP; FOR THE HOUR TO REAP HAS COME; FOR THE HARVEST OF THE EARTH IS RIPE!" He who sat on the cloud thrust his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. Another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven. He also had a sharp sickle. Another angel came out from the altar, he who has power over fire, and he called with a great voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, FOR THE EARTH'S GRAPES ARE FULLY RIPE!" The angel thrust his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vintage of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of Elohim. The winepress was trodden outside of the city, and blood came out from the winepress, even to the bridles of the horses, as far as one thousand six hundred stadia. (Revelation 14:14-20 RNEB)

The sickle is used to go into the vineyard and separate the grapes from the vine. Then we take the grapes, which represents the people, and we place them in the barrel, the barrel of wrath, then judgment is placed on them which is trampling. YAH was saying when they reached their fullness judgment would occur on the earth. We have an example of this occurring in scripture on a miniature scale as a prelude of things to come.

    He said to Abram, "Know for sure that your seed will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years. I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth, but you will go to your fathers in peace. You will be buried in a good old age. IN THE FOURTH GENERATION THEY WILL COME HERE AGAIN, FOR THE LAWLESSNESS OF THE AMORI IS NOT YET FULL." (Genesis 15:13-16 RNEB)

The iniquity will have apexed in the forth generation, that's when judgment will be executed on the Amorites. In other words, this is when lawlessness has reached its full capacity, and it's time for judgement.

    These are the words which Moshe spoke to all Yisra'el beyond the Yarden in the wilderness, in the `Aravah over against Suf, between Paran, and Tofel, and Lavan, and Chatzerot, and Di-Zahav. It is eleven days' [journey] from Chorev by the way of Mount Se`ir to Kadesh-Barnea. It happened in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moshe spoke to the children of Yisra'el, according to all that YAH had given him in commandment to them; AFTER HE HAD STRUCK SICHON THE KING OF THE AMORI, who lived in Cheshbon, and `Og the king of Bashan, who lived in `Ashtarot, at Edre`i. (Deuteronomy 1:1-4 RNEB)

The time line of the fourth generation is according to the Amorites. When they have reached their apex of iniquity, judgment would take place on them. Lets look at what judgement took place.

    YAH said to me, Behold, I have begun to deliver up Sichon and his land before you: begin to possess, that you may inherit his land. THEN SICHON CAME OUT AGAINST US, HE AND ALL HIS PEOPLE, TO BATTLE AT YAHATZ. (Deuteronomy 2:31-32 RNEB)

This very same thing will happen in the future except the nations will come out against Yahshua at Armageddo, with the exception that this will take place on a global scale, and it won't be Amorites, it will be gentiles. The gentiles (Indo Eurasians) are in power today, and they will wage war against the divine order represented by Yahshua when he returns.

    YAH our Elohim delivered him up before us; and we struck him, and his sons, and all his people. We took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed every inhabited city, with the women and the little ones; WE LEFT NONE REMAINING: only the livestock we took for a prey to ourselves, with the spoil of the cities which we had taken. From `Aro`er, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and [from] the city that is in the valley, even to Gil`ad, there was not a city too high for us; YAH OUR ELOHIM DELIVERED UP ALL BEFORE US: only to the land of the children of `Ammon you didn't come near; all the side of the river Yabbok, and the cities of the hill country, and wherever YAH our Elohim forbade us. (Deuteronomy 2:33-37 RNEB)

Yisrael was originally under a theocracy, it moved to a monarchy by the demand of the people, however it was still being ruled under theocratic principals. Just as Yisrael was ruled under a theocracy, the very same thing will take place on a global scale at the end of the age.

    They will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations. Yerushalayim will be trampled down by the Gentiles, UNTIL THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES ARE FULFILLED. (Luke 21:24 RNEB)

Remember the scripture using the winepress analogy, gather the clusters, cast them into the winepress, for her grapes are full. We are in the reign of the gentiles, and they have almost reached their fullness.

    For I don't desire, brothers, to have you ignorant of this mystery, so that you won't be wise in your own conceits, that a partial hardening has happened to Yisra'el, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in, (Romans 11:25 RNEB)

There are many that don't have eyes to see or ears to hear in this time.

At the fullness of the gentiles, we will have war, they are given the final three and a half years of this age to rule politically and ecclesiastically, at the end of that period second advent judgment will occur, and we shift over into a theocracy under the rule of Yahshua. Just before the end of this age the eyes of many will be opened when the two witnesses die and are resurrected in Yerushalayim while the whole world watches.

    I looked, and behold, a white cloud; and on the cloud one sitting like a son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. Another angel came out from the temple, crying with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, "Send forth your sickle, and reap; for the hour to reap has come; for the harvest of the earth is ripe!" He who sat on the cloud thrust his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. Another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven. He also had a sharp sickle. Another angel came out from the altar, he who has power over fire, and he called with a great voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for the earth's grapes are fully ripe!" The angel thrust his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vintage of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of Elohim. The winepress was trodden outside of the city, and blood came out from the winepress, even to the bridles of the horses, as far as one thousand six hundred stadia. (Revelation 14:14-20 RNEB)
    For, behold, YAH will come with fire, and his chariots shall be like the whirlwind; to render his anger with fierceness, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire will YAH execute judgment, and by his sword, on all flesh; and THE SLAIN OF YAH SHALL BE MANY. (Isaiah 66:15-16 RNEB)

We just read about the river of blood that was five feet deep and one hundred and eighty five miles long, but whose blood will it be? Lets look at one of the indicators.

    Those who sanctify and purify themselves in order to enter the gardens, then follow the one who was already there, eating pig's flesh, reptiles and mice, will all be destroyed together, says YAH. For I [know] their works and their thoughts: [the time] comes, that I will gather all nations and languages; and they shall come, and shall see my glory. I will set a sign among them, and I will send such as escape of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, who draw the bow, to Tuval and Yavan, to the islands afar off, who have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations. THEY SHALL BRING ALL YOUR BROTHERS OUT OF ALL THE NATIONS FOR AN OFFERING TO YAH, ON HORSES, AND IN CHARIOTS, AND IN LITTERS, AND ON MULES, AND ON DROMEDARIES, TO MY HOLY MOUNTAIN YERUSHALAYIM, SAYS YAH, AS THE CHILDREN OF YISRA'EL BRING THEIR OFFERING IN A CLEAN VESSEL INTO THE HOUSE OF YAH. (Isaiah 66:17-20 RNEB)

These people tried to sanctify themselves, YAH's sanctification was not good enough, so the tendencies of the nations are to do what they want to do, when they want to do it. When mankind tries to sanctify himself based on his own ideas of right and wrong, YAH's sanctification process is nullified and the nations become lawless in his eyes.

Yisrael was scattered to the four corners of the earth, so when this battle takes place after the great tribulation, Yisrael will be returned at the expense of the nations.

    Of them also will I take for priests [and] for Levites, says YAH. For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, says YAH, so shall your seed and your name remain. It shall happen, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, says YAH. They shall go forth, and look on the dead bodies of the men who have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring to all flesh. (Isaiah 66:21-24 RNEB)

Yahshua is now making war, we discussed this in Isaiah 63:1-6, it will begin in Edom. Yahshua comes out of heaven and his feet land on the Mount of Olives, he comes with the dead in the Anointed, the 144,000, and legions of angels.

    You, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus says YAH Elohim: Behold, I am against you, Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshekh, and Tuval: (Ezekiel 39:1 RNEB)

Gog, Meshekh, and Tuval represent three gentile (European) nations. Yahshua said that Yisrael would be extracted from Yerushalayim and scattered to the four corners of the earth until the fullness of the gentiles comes in. It will be the gentile armies that go up to the mount of Armeggo to make war, Yahshua will destroy their power first, then he will judge the rest of the wicked. Everything leads up to the theocratic age, which requires that the earth to be purged and made clean.

    and I will turn you about, and will lead you on, and will cause you to come up from the uttermost parts of the north; and I will bring you on the mountains of Yisra'el; (Ezekiel 39:2 RNEB)

There will be a great war, not everyone will be destroyed, however most of them will.

    and I will strike your bow out of your left hand, and will cause your arrows to fall out of your right hand. (Ezekiel 39:3 RNEB)

This has to take place in Yisrael, and currently to the north of Yisrael is Iraq, Turkey, and Armenia. America has many military bases throughout and occupies these areas with Indo Eurasian (gentile) troops. You can fill in the blanks.

    You shall fall on the mountains of Yisra'el, you, and all your hordes, and the peoples who are with you: I will give you to the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the animals of the field to be devoured. You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken it, says YAH Elohim. I will send a fire on Magog, and on those who dwell securely in the islands; and they shall know that I am YAH. My holy name will I make known in the midst of my people Yisra'el; neither will I allow my holy name to be profaned any more: and the nations shall know that I am YAH, the Holy One in Yisra'el. Behold, it comes, and it shall be done, says YAH Elohim; this is the day about which I have spoken. Those who dwell in the cities of Yisra'el shall go forth, and shall make fires of the weapons and burn them, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the war clubs, and the spears, and they shall make fires of them seven years; so that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall make fires of the weapons; and they shall plunder those who plundered them, and rob those who robbed them, says YAH Elohim. IT SHALL HAPPEN IN THAT DAY, THAT I WILL GIVE TO GOG A PLACE FOR BURIAL IN YISRA'EL, THE VALLEY OF THOSE WHO PASS THROUGH ON THE EAST OF THE SEA; AND IT SHALL STOP THOSE WHO PASS THROUGH: AND THERE SHALL THEY BURY GOG AND ALL HIS MULTITUDE; AND THEY SHALL CALL IT THE VALLEY OF HAMON-GOG. SEVEN MONTHS SHALL THE HOUSE OF YISRA'EL BE BURYING THEM, THAT THEY MAY CLEANSE THE LAND. (Ezekiel 39:4-12 RNEB)

Ezekiel is painting a very bleak picture of a war where an uncountable number of people die, it will take thousands of Yisraelites seven months to bury the dead and cleanse the land.

    Yes, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown in the day that I shall be glorified, says YAH Elohim. They shall set apart men of continual employment, who shall pass through the land, and, with those who pass through, those who bury those who remain on the surface of the land, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. Those who pass through the land shall pass through; and when any sees a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, until the undertakers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-Gog. Hamonah shall also be the name of a city. Thus shall they cleanse the land. You, son of man, thus says YAH Elohim: Speak to the birds of every sort, and to every animal of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice on the mountains of Yisra'el, that you may eat flesh and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bulls, all of them fatlings of Bashan. You shall eat fat until you be full, and drink blood until you be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. You shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, says YAH Elohim. I will set my glory among the nations; and all the nations shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid on them. So the house of Yisra'el shall know that I am YAH their Elohim, from that day and forward. The nations shall know that the house of Yisra'el went into captivity for their lawlessness; because they trespassed against me, and I hid my face from them: so I gave them into the hand of their adversaries, and they fell all of them by the sword. (Ezekiel 39:13-23 RNEB)

YAH is still lamenting over Yisrael breaking his commandments. Yahshua said that Yisrael will be extracted from Yerushalayim, the city will be trodden down by the gentiles, and Yisrael will be scattered to the four corners of the world until the fullness of the gentiles comes in. Yisrael is not supposed to be back in the land until the Anointed returns. So, who are the people in the land now? Prophetically it's the nations that will finance Yisrael's return to the land.

    According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions did I to them; and I hid my face from them. Therefore thus says YAH Elohim: Now will I bring back the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Yisra'el; and I will be jealous for my holy name. They shall bear their shame, and all their trespasses by which they have trespassed against me, when they shall dwell securely in their land, and none shall make them afraid; WHEN I HAVE BROUGHT THEM BACK FROM THE PEOPLES, AND GATHERED THEM OUT OF THEIR ENEMIES' LANDS, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations. They shall know that I am YAH their Elohim, in that I caused them to go into captivity among the nations, and have gathered them to their own land; and I will leave none of them any more there; neither will I hide my face any more from them; for I have poured out my Spirit on the house of Yisra'el, says YAH Elohim. (Ezekiel 39:24-29 RNEB)

This is talking about YAH bringing Yisrael back to their land, Ezekiel says when they return, there will be no one left to fear around them, and they will know he is there Elohim. This also will not occur until after Yahshua's return, which occurs after the great tribulation.

This is reiterated in the book of Revelation.

    I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war. (Revelation 19:11 RNEB)

This is speaking of the second advent judgment, war on the gentile nations, and then judgment of the wicked people that dwell on the earth. The scripture says the meek shall inherit the earth and the righteous that walk there in.

    His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name written which no one knows but he himself. (Revelation 19:12 RNEB)

On His head are many crowns - He is the king of kings and master of masters, which is represented in his many crowns.

    And having been dressed in a robe dipped in blood – and HIS NAME IS CALLED: THE WORD OF YAH. (Revelation 19:13 ISR)
    Elohim, having of old spoken in many portions and many ways to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by the Son, whom He has appointed heir of all, through whom also He made the ages, (Hebrews 1:1-2 ISR)

The word is anyone who speaks the oracles or word of Elohim by commandment. Before Yahshua it was the prophets that were the word of their age, in this day it's Yahshua.

    He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called "The Word of Elohim." The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen. Out of his mouth proceeds a sharp, double-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. HE TREADS THE WINEPRESS of the fierceness of the wrath of Elohim, the Almighty. He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND MASTER OF MASTERS." I SAW AN ANGEL STANDING IN THE SUN. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the sky, "COME! BE GATHERED TOGETHER TO THE GREAT SUPPER OF ELOHIM, that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, and small and great." I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, GATHERED TOGETHER TO MAKE WAR AGAINST HIM WHO SAT ON THE HORSE, AND AGAINST HIS ARMY. The beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who worked the signs in his sight, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. The rest were killed with the sword of him who sat on the horse, the sword which came forth out of his mouth. All the birds were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:13-21 RNEB)

There going to make war against the lamb, the beast that was taken, we saw in Revelation chapter thirteen which represents the political system and ecclesiastical power.

Yahshua has executed judgment on the face of the earth and a global cleansing is taking place through this war to bring in the theocratic age.

Many people will postpone accepting these things and say they will wait until this all starts before changing. It takes a long time to change our nature and develop an appreciation for the word of Elohim, it's easy to see the people that do because they will carry out what Elohim requires of them without making excuses.

    Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand. From the time that the continual [burnt offering] shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred ninety days. (Daniel 12:10-11 RNEB)

The great tribulation is 1260 days, three and a half years, however here we see 1290 days, thirty additional days have been added.

    Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred thirty-five days. (Daniel 12:12 RNEB)

Were told we will need to wait fervently for 1335 days, we have 1260 days [three and a half years] of tribulation, when that's over, we have war, and then there is a transition period before coming out of the old age and entering the theocratic age. We must continue to practice righteousness and be patient and obedient during the transition.

    But GO YOU YOUR WAY UNTIL THE END be; for you shall rest, and shall stand in your lot, at THE END OF THE DAYS. (Daniel 12:13 RNEB)

YAH is not going to fight a three year war, the war will occur at the end of the tribulation period, and it won't last very long!

    For then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that they may all call on the name of YAH, to serve him shoulder to shoulder. (Zephaniah 3:9 RNEB)

After the three an a half year period, the war, and the second advent judgement takes place, the languages of the earth will be unified into one pure language.

    From beyond the rivers of Kush, my worshipers, even the daughter of my dispersed people, will bring my offering. In that day you will not be disappointed for all your doings, in which you have transgressed against me; for then I will take away out of the midst of you your proudly exulting ones, and you will no more be haughty in my holy mountain. But I will leave in the midst of you an afflicted and poor people, and they will take refuge in the name of YAH. The remnant of Yisra'el will not do lawlessness, nor speak lies, neither will a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth, for they will feed and lie down, and no one will make them afraid." Sing, daughter of Tziyon! Shout, Yisra'el! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, daughter of Yerushalayim. YAH has taken away your judgments. He has thrown out your enemy. The King of Yisra'el, YAH, is in the midst of you. You will not be afraid of evil any more. In that day, it will be said to Yerushalayim, "Don't be afraid, Tziyon. Don't let your hands be slack." YAH, your Elohim, is in the midst of you, a mighty one who will save. He will rejoice over you with joy. He will rest in his love. He will rejoice over you with singing. Those who are sad for the appointed feasts, I will remove from you. They are a burden and a reproach to you. Behold, at that time I will deal with all those who afflict you, and I will save those who are lame, and gather those who were driven away. I will give them praise and honor, whose shame has been in all the earth. At that time will I bring you in, and at that time will I gather you; for I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth, when I bring back your captivity before your eyes, says YAH. (Zephaniah 3:10-20 RNEB)

We have now entered the theocratic age.

The Theocratic Age

    A shoot will come out of the stock of Yishai, and a branch out of his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of YAH will rest on him: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YAH. His delight will be in the fear of YAH. He will not judge by the sight of his eyes, neither decide by the hearing of his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the poor, and decide with equity for the humble of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips he will kill the wicked. Righteousness will be the belt of his waist, and faithfulness the sash around his hips. The wolf will live with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat; The calf, the young lion, and the fattened calf together; and a little child will lead them. (Isaiah 11:1-6 RNEB)

This is after the war and the final judgements. This is how it will be under the new theocratic system.

    The cow and the bear will graze. Their young ones will lie down together. The lion will eat straw like the ox. The nursing child will play near a cobra's hole, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den. They will not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth will be full of the knowledge of YAH, as the waters cover the sea. It will happen in that day that the nations will seek the root of Yishai, who stands as a banner of the peoples; and his resting place will be glorious. It will happen in that day that YAH will set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant that is left of his people from Ashur, from Egypt, from Patros, from Kush, from `Elam, from Shin`ar, from Chamat, and from the islands of the sea. (Isaiah 11:7-11 RNEB)
    Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of YAH is risen on you. For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but YAH will arise on you, and his glory shall be seen on you. Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about, and see: they all gather themselves together, they come to you; your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be carried in the arms. (Isaiah 60:1-4 RNEB)

All the prophets speak about Yisrael being redeemed during this period, not 1948 when many religious leaders believe Yisrael became a nation again, and the Jews came back to the land. There have been numerous wars and skirmishes which does not align with the prophecies of the land being at peace, not to mention the people currently there do not occupy the entire land.

    Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you. The multitude of camels shall cover you, the dromedaries of Midyan and `Efah; all they from Sheva shall come; they shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praises of YAH. All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, the rams of Nevayot shall minister to you; they shall come up with acceptance on my altar; and I will glorify the house of my glory. Who are these who fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? Surely the islands shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, for the name of YAH your Elohim, and for the Holy One of Yisra'el, because he has glorified you. Foreigners shall build up your walls, and their kings shall minister to you: for in my wrath I struck you, but in my favor have I had mercy on you. Your gates also shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; THAT MEN MAY BRING TO YOU THE WEALTH OF THE NATIONS, AND THEIR KINGS LED CAPTIVE. For that nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; yes, those nations shall be utterly wasted. The glory of Levanon shall come to you, the fir tree, the pine, and the box tree together, TO BEAUTIFY THE PLACE OF MY SANCTUARY; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. (Isaiah 60:5-13 RNEB)

During this time YAH will turn back all the captivity that occurred in the past, the gentile nations will have to bring tribute to Yisrael.

Were talking about the millennial kingdom, the theocratic age. This is what we have been hoping and laboring for. Just as all the patriarchs said that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth and seek a homeland, one to call their own, a city made by the hands of Elohim, we should also desire the same. Shaul said in Hebrews the fourth chapter, let us fear therefore, lest perhaps anyone of you should seem to have come short of a promise of entering into his rest. Let us therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of disobedience.

    The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bending to you; and all those who despised you shall bow themselves down at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you The city of YAH, The Tziyon of the Holy One of Yisra'el. Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, so that no man passed through you, I will make you an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. You shall also suck the milk of the nations, and shall suck the breast of kings; and you shall know that I, YAH, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron. I will also make your officers peace, and righteousness your ruler. Violence shall no more be heard in your land, desolation nor destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise. (Isaiah 60:14-18 RNEB)

There is no doubt we are not in this period yet. Ever since we heard that Yisrael was a state in 1948, they have been fighting to stay in that land, never having a period of peace during this entire time.

    The sun shall be no more your light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light to you: but YAH will be to you an everlasting light, and your Elohim your glory. (Isaiah 60:19 RNEB)

This verse is out of place, will discuss why in a moment.

    Your sun shall no more go down, neither shall your moon withdraw itself; for YAH will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. Your people also shall be all righteous; they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. THE LITTLE ONE SHALL BECOME A THOUSAND, AND THE SMALL ONE A STRONG NATION; I, YAH, WILL HASTEN IT IN ITS TIME. (Isaiah 60:20-22 RNEB)

The verses nineteen and twenty don't play out until the end of the theocratic age, where the latter verses represent the time of the theocratic age. One thing that's important to realize about prophecy is when many of the prophets received a prophecy it would often cover two or three different periods of time in the same vision.

    The Spirit of YAH Elohim is on me; because YAH has anointed me to preach good news to the humble; he has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening [of the prison] to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of YAH's favor, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim; to comfort all who mourn; to appoint to those who mourn in Tziyon, to give to them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of YAH, that he may be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1-3 RNEB)

This is an example of what we were just talking about, the first few verses of this chapter concern Yahshua's time, and the verses after refer to future events.

    They shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. But you shall be named the priests of YAH; men shall call you the ministers of our Elohim: you shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory shall you boast yourselves. Instead of your shame [you shall have] double; and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be to them. For I, YAH, love justice, I hate robbery with lawlessness; and I will give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. Their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which YAH has blessed. I will greatly rejoice in YAH, my soul shall be joyful in my Elohim; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so YAH Elohim will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. (Isaiah 61:4-11 RNEB)
    For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for, behold, I create Yerushalayim a rejoicing, and her people a joy. I will rejoice in Yerushalayim, and joy in my people; and there shall be heard in her no more the voice of weeping and the voice of crying. THERE SHALL BE NO MORE THERE AN INFANT OF DAYS, NOR AN OLD MAN WHO HAS NOT FILLED HIS DAYS; FOR THE CHILD SHALL DIE ONE HUNDRED YEARS OLD, AND THE SINNER BEING ONE HUNDRED YEARS OLD SHALL BE ACCURSED. (Isaiah 65:17-20 RNEB)

During the millennial reign life will be extended, if one dies at 100 years old they will be considered a child. If someone dies at 100 years old during this time it's because they were involved in iniquity.

    They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of my people, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of YAH, and their offspring with them. It shall happen that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, says YAH. (Isaiah 65:21-25 RNEB)

Isaiah chapter eleven is our parallel scripture, we can also see what's taking place if we compare Isaiah chapter eleven and Isaiah 65:17, they are telling us the same thing only one provides more details concerning the events that are taking place.

    In that day I will raise up the tent of David who is fallen, and close up its breaches, and I will raise up its ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old; that they may possess the remnant of Edom, and all the nations who are called by my name," says YAH who does this. "Behold, the days come," says YAH, "that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the one treading grapes him who sows seed; and sweet wine will drip from the mountains, and flow from the hills. I will bring my people Yisra'el back from captivity, and they will rebuild the ruined cities, and inhabit them; and they will plant vineyards, and drink wine from them. They shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. I will plant them on their land, and they will no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them," says YAH your Elohim. (Amos 9:11-15 RNEB)
    Thus says YAH Elohim, Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations, and set up my banner to the peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their bosom, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders. Kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers: they shall bow down to you with their faces to the earth, and lick the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I am YAH; and those who wait for me shall not be disappointed. Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captives be delivered? But thus says YAH, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children. I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I, YAH, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. (Isaiah 49:22-26 RNEB)

We will be very comfortable during this time, the scriptures paint a pleasant picture.

    For YAH will have compassion on Jacob, and will yet choose Yisra'el, and set them in their own land. THE FOREIGNER WILL JOIN HIMSELF WITH THEM, AND THEY WILL UNITE WITH THE HOUSE OF JACOB. (Isaiah 14:1 RNEB)

YAH created all flesh, and he only has one policy and process for everyone. It's clear in the Torah that there was only one law created for all, "For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you, and for the stranger who lives as a foreigner [with you], a statute forever throughout your generations: as you are, so shall the foreigner be before YAH" (Numbers 15:15). There is a theology taught in "The Church" that says Christians have one set of laws and the Hebrews another, we can clearly see from this verse the stranger is joined to Yisrael and both cling to the house of Jacob. The question we should be asking is if we are supposed to cleave to the house of Jacob, then why are so many cleaving to the gentiles and their religious design rather than YAH's laws and precepts? There are churches all over the land and many can be looked at as nothing more than gentile whore houses, why? Because when they forsake YAH's laws, they our committing spiritual adultery, which makes them spiritual whores.

    The peoples will take them, and bring them to their place. The house of Yisra'el will possess them in YAH's land for servants and for handmaids. They will take as captives those whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors. (Isaiah 14:2 RNEB)

The house of Yisrael will hire the gentiles which choose to dwell in the land with them, as servants and employees. In this way will Yisrael rule over them in a righteous manner.

    It will happen in the day that YAH WILL GIVE YOU REST FROM YOUR SORROW, FROM YOUR TROUBLE, AND FROM THE HARD SERVICE IN WHICH YOU WERE MADE TO SERVE, that you will take up this parable against the king of Babel, and say, "How the oppressor has ceased! The golden city has ceased!" YAH has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers, who struck the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, who ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that none restrained. THE WHOLE EARTH IS AT REST, AND IS QUIET. THEY BREAK OUT IN SONG. (Isaiah 14:3-7 RNEB)

Shaul told us in Hebrews chapter four, let us labor to enter into the rest, the rest he was talking about is what is mentioned here.

Lets see why the earth is at rest and peace.

    I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. He seized the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole inhabited earth, and bound him for a thousand years, and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were finished. After this, he must be freed for a short time. I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Yahshua, and for the word of Elohim, and such as didn't worship the beast nor his image, and didn't receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived, and reigned with the Anointed for the thousand years. The rest of the dead didn't live until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these, the second death has no power, but they will be priests of Elohim and of the Anointed, and will reign with him one thousand years. And after the thousand years, Satan will be released from his prison, (Revelation 20:1-7 RNEB)

The whole world is at rest because Satan has been bound and the wicked (unrighteous) people have been uprooted from the face of the earth, the ones left are the meek and the righteous.

    I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Tziyon, and with him a number, one hundred forty-four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads. I heard a sound from heaven, like the sound of many waters, and like the sound of a great thunder. The sound which I heard was like that of harpists playing on their harps. They sing a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the one hundred forty-four thousand, those who had been redeemed out of the earth. These are those who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are those who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were redeemed by Yahshua from among men, the first fruits to Elohim and to the Lamb. In their mouth was found no lie, for they are blameless. (Revelation 14:1-5 RNEB)

The hundred and forty four thousand ethnic Hebrews and the dead in the Anointed will be sitting on thrones, meaning governing thrones over the entire face of the earth. They will have the authority and autonomy to judge and pass ruling on everything that takes place on the earth, which is at rest during this time.

    Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looks toward the east. Behold, the glory of the Elohim of Yisra'el came from the way of the east: and his voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shined with his glory. It was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city; and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Kevar; and I fell on my face. (Ezekiel 43:1-3 RNEB)

There are more details about the temple in Ezekiel 40:1, this temple has not been built at this point, however we will see it completed as we continue reading about what will occur prophetically.

    The glory of YAH CAME INTO THE HOUSE BY THE WAY OF THE GATE WHOSE PROSPECT IS TOWARD THE EAST. The Spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of YAH filled the house. I heard one speaking to me out of the house; and a man stood by me. He said to me, SON OF MAN, [THIS IS] THE PLACE OF MY THRONE, AND THE PLACE OF THE SOLES OF MY FEET, WHERE I WILL DWELL IN THE MIDST OF THE CHILDREN OF YISRA'EL FOREVER. THE HOUSE OF YISRA'EL SHALL NO MORE DEFILE MY HOLY NAME, neither they, nor their kings, by their prostitution, and by the dead bodies of their kings [in] their high places; (Ezekiel 43:4-7 RNEB)

Remember, in Revelation this great multitude which no man could number of various languages and nations all stood before the throne, which is located on earth.

    in their setting of their threshold by my threshold, and their doorpost beside my doorpost, and there was [but] the wall between me and them; and they have defiled my holy name by their abominations which they have committed: therefore I have consumed them in my anger. Now let them put away their prostitution, and the dead bodies of their kings, far from me; and I will dwell in the midst of them forever. (Ezekiel 43:8-9 RNEB)

YAH is reciting what they did in the days of antiquity and all the whoring has been put aside because they made it to the millennial period.

    You, son of man, show the house to the house of Yisra'el, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern. (Ezekiel 43:10 RNEB)

This is a prophetic vision of the theocratic age were laboring to enter into.

    If they be ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the form of the house, and the fashion of it, and the exits of it, and the entrances of it, and all the forms of it, and all the ordinances of it, and all the forms of it, and all the laws of it; and write it in their sight; that they may keep the whole form of it, and all the ordinances of it, and do them. This is the law of the house: on the top of the mountain the whole limit of it round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house. (Ezekiel 43:11-12 RNEB)

We talked about the prince in the first part of our study, prince David, a commander, leader, and witness to the people. David will lead the righteous out of the three and a half year tribulation period into the promised land, the theocratic age, and to this temple.

    Yet listen now, Jacob my servant, and Yisra'el, whom I have chosen. This is what YAH who made you, and formed you from the womb, who will help you says: "Don't be afraid, Jacob my servant; and you, Yeshurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and streams on the dry ground. I will pour my Spirit on your seed, and my blessing on your offspring: and they will spring up among the grass, as willows by the watercourses. One will say, 'I am YAH's;' and another will be called by the name of Jacob; and another will write with his hand 'to YAH,' and honor the name of Yisra'el." This is what YAH, the King of Yisra'el, and Redeemer, YAH of Armies, says: "I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no Elohim. Who is like me? Who will call, and will declare it, and set it in order for me, since I established the ancient people? Let them declare the things that are coming, and that will happen. Don't fear, neither be afraid. Haven't I declared it to you long ago, and shown it? You are my witnesses. Is there a Elohim besides me? Indeed, there is not. I don't know any other Rock." (Isaiah 44:1-8 RNEB)

YAH is now telling Ezekiel to tell Yisrael that this is not going to happen in his house. This is why when Shaul was in Yerushalayim with a gentile traveling companion, and the Hebrews assumed Shaul brought him into the temple, they got very angry and wanted to stone him. A gentile in the temple would be an abomination, a defilement. Shaul had not brought him in the temple, the Hebrews made a mistake. According to the prophecy of the millennial age, the gentiles will have to be circumcised to enter the house of worship. Those uncircumcised in the flesh or heart will not be able to enter into the sanctuary.

This discourse in Ezekiel chapter forty four is dealing with the establishment of the priesthood during the millennial age.

    THUS SAYS YAH ELOHIM, NO FOREIGNER, UNCIRCUMCISED IN HEART AND UNCIRCUMCISED IN FLESH, SHALL ENTER INTO MY SANCTUARY, OF ANY FOREIGNERS WHO ARE AMONG THE CHILDREN OF YISRA'EL. But the Levites who went far from me, when Yisra'el went astray, who went astray from me after their idols, they shall bear their lawlessness. Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having oversight at the gates of the house, and ministering in the house: they shall kill the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister to them. (Ezekiel 44:9-11 RNEB)

There will be sacrificing during the millennial kingdom. The first thought many have is Yahshua was already sacrificed for us, that was in the prior age, the one were in now, Yahshua will be on earth in the temple fulfilling his role as king, he will not be in heaven mediating on our behalf during this age. There will still be sin in the millennial period which will require a covering. The next verse takes place during the millennial kingdom and shows a bull being sacrificed.

    You shall give to the priests the Levites who are of the seed of Tzadok, who are near to me, to minister to me, says YAH Elohim, A YOUNG BULL FOR A SIN OFFERING. (Ezekiel 43:19 RNEB)

Not everyone during this time is immortal, the great multitude that came out of the tribulation and went before the alter were righteous, however still mortal with a free will. There will even be the bearing children during this time. The immortals, the 144,000 and the dead in the Anointed will have glorified bodies and walk without sin as judges and governors over the land.

    Because they ministered to them before their idols, and became a stumbling block of lawlessness to the house of Yisra'el; therefore have I lifted up my hand against them, says YAH Elohim, and they shall bear their lawlessness. They shall not come near to me, to execute the office of Priest to me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, to the things that are most holy; but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have committed. Yet will I make them keepers of the charge of the house, for all the service of it, and for all that shall be done therein. BUT THE PRIESTS THE LEVITES, THE SONS OF TZADOK, who kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Yisra'el went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister to me; and they shall stand before me to offer to me the fat and the blood, says YAH Elohim: (Ezekiel 44:12-15 RNEB)

Notice here it says the sons of Tzadok will guard the holy place, in ancient times it was the sons of Aaron that were given this task, so we know this is talking about a new time. Tzadok is in the direct lineage of Aaron so YAH is keeping his covenant with Levi. The reason Tzadok lineage was chosen is because he was the only one who sided with David when his son Absalom tried to take the throne. YAH remembered, and Solomon even honored him in his time by making him High Priest.

    But in the latter days, it will happen that the mountain of YAH's temple will be established on the top of the mountains, and it will be exalted above the hills; and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will go and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YAH, and to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths." For out of Tziyon will go forth the law, and the word of YAH from Yerushalayim; and he will judge between many peoples, and will decide concerning strong nations afar off. THEY WILL BEAT THEIR SWORDS INTO PLOWSHARES, AND THEIR SPEARS INTO PRUNING HOOKS. NATION WILL NOT LIFT UP SWORD AGAINST NATION, NEITHER WILL THEY LEARN WAR ANY MORE. (Micah 4:1-3 RNEB)

The weapons are no longer necessary because this happens during the theocratic age, however there will be a great war at the end of this period.

    But they will sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and no one will make them afraid: For the mouth of YAH of Armies has spoken. Indeed all the nations may walk in the name of their elohims; but we will walk in the name of YAH our Elohim forever and ever. (Micah 4:4-5 RNEB)

Were going to back track in the next few scriptures to set the ground work for the upcoming scriptures.

    The second angel sounded, and something like a great burning mountain was thrown into the sea. One third of the sea became blood, and one third of the living creatures which were in the sea died. One third of the ships were destroyed. The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from the sky, burning like a torch, and it fell on one third of the rivers, and on the springs of the waters. The name of the star is called "Wormwood." One third of the waters became wormwood. Many people died from the waters, because they were made bitter. (Revelation 8:8-11 RNEB)
    The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man. Every living thing in the sea died. The third poured out his bowl into the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. (Revelation 16:3-4 RNEB)

This is during the plagues and judgment, so we have backed up in our time line for these few verses to show the waters being destroyed. It's important to help us better understand the upcoming scriptures.

    He brought me back to the door of the house; and behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward; (for the forefront of the house was toward the east;) and the waters came down from under, from the right side of the house, on the south of the altar. Then he brought me out by the way of the gate northward, and led me round by the way outside to the outer gate, by the way of [the gate] that looks toward the east; and behold, there ran out waters on the right side. (Ezekiel 47:1-2 RNEB)

The waters began to flow after the temple had been established during the millennial period.

    When the man went forth eastward with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he caused me to pass through the waters, WATERS THAT WERE TO THE ANKLES. Again he measured one thousand, and caused me to pass through the waters, WATERS THAT WERE TO THE KNEES. Again he measured one thousand, and caused me to pass through [the waters], WATERS THAT WERE TO THE WAIST. Afterward he measured one thousand; [and it was] a river that I could not pass through; for the waters were risen, WATERS TO SWIM IN, a river that could not be passed through. He said to me, Son of man, have you seen [this]? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the bank of the river. Now when I had returned, behold, ON THE BANK OF THE RIVER WERE VERY MANY TREES ON THE ONE SIDE AND ON THE OTHER. Then said he to me, These waters issue forth toward the eastern region, and shall go down into the `Aravah; and they shall go toward the sea; into the sea [shall the waters go] which were made to issue forth; and the waters shall be healed. (Ezekiel 47:3-8 RNEB)

In the very beginning the waters preceded out of the garden of Eden and watered the whole earth. Keep in mind the waters preceded out of YAH's garden.

    It shall happen, that every living creature which swarms, in every place where the rivers come, shall live; and there shall be a very great multitude of fish; for these waters are come there, and [the waters of the sea] shall be healed, and everything shall live wherever the river comes. (Ezekiel 47:9 RNEB)

We just showed that all the water was polluted and destroy that was on the earth before the millennium. The river that's flowing is healing the water.

    It shall happen, that fishermen shall stand by it: from `En-Gedi even to `En-`Eglayim shall be a place for the spreading of nets; their fish shall be after their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. But the miry places of it, and the marshes of it, shall not be healed; they shall be given up to salt. By the river on the bank of it, on this side and on that side, shall grow every tree for food, whose leaf shall not wither, neither shall the fruit of it fail: it shall bring forth new fruit every month, BECAUSE THE WATERS OF IT ISSUE OUT OF THE SANCTUARY; AND THE FRUIT OF IT SHALL BE FOR FOOD, AND THE LEAF OF IT FOR HEALING. (Ezekiel 47:10-12 RNEB)

The waters are coming out of the sanctuary.

    He showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of Elohim and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On this side of the river and on that WAS THE TREE OF LIFE, bearing twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:1-2 RNEB)

The tree of life - This is part of the same river we just read about in Ezekiel chapter forty seven, Yochanan is prophesying about this river in 96 CE, this has not happened yet, however it's the same tree we read about in Ezekiel which is an indicator that what we read in Ezekiel is taking place during the theocratic age.

    It will happen in that day, that the mountains will drop down sweet wine, the hills will flow with milk, ALL THE BROOKS OF JUDAH WILL FLOW WITH WATERS, AND A FOUNTAIN WILL COME FORTH FROM THE HOUSE OF YAH, AND WILL WATER THE VALLEY OF SHITTIM. (Joel 3:18 RNEB)

In Joel 3:1-17 it refers to the period of second advent judgement, verse eighteen takes place during the millennial age.

    It will be a unique day which is known to YAH; not day, and not night; but it will come to pass, that at evening time there will be light. IT WILL HAPPEN IN THAT DAY, THAT LIVING WATERS WILL GO OUT FROM YERUSHALAYIM; half of them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea; in summer and in winter will it be. (Zechariah 14:7-8 RNEB)

In all the scriptures we reviewed water is flowing from the temple and healing the land.

End of The Age

    And after the thousand years, SATAN WILL BE RELEASED FROM HIS PRISON, and he will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, GOG AND MAGOG, to gather them together to the war; THE NUMBER OF WHOM IS AS THE SAND OF THE SEA. (Revelation 20:7-8 RNEB)

In Ezekiel chapter thirty nine a part of the army of Gog and Magog were returned and not destroyed, and we see the first place Satan goes when he's released is to the remnant of these people, which now after having children for one thousand years is a large multitude.

    And after the thousand years, SATAN WILL BE RELEASED FROM HIS PRISON, and he will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. They went up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the holy ones, and the beloved city. FIRE CAME DOWN OUT OF HEAVEN FROM ELOHIM, AND DEVOURED THEM. (Revelation 20:7-9 RNEB)

Satan comes in and deceives the leaders of Gog, Magog, Tuval, and all the bands that Elohim allowed to escape during judgment. He allowed these people to rebuild over a thousand year period to be tried again by being deceived by the Adversary. Remember it says they shall learn war no more, well they didn't and were not even given and opportunity to reach the city walls. Elohim consumed them in fire, there was no battle.

    The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are also. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever. (Revelation 20:10 RNEB)

Gog and Magog

    The word of YAH came to me, saying, Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshekh, and Tuval, and prophesy against him, and say, Thus says YAH Elohim: Behold, I am against you, Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshekh, and Tuval: and I will turn you about, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords; Paras, Kush, and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; (Ezekiel 38:1-5 RNEB)

When he comes up he's bringing Iran, Ethiopia, and Libya.

    Gomer, and all his hordes; the house of Togarmah in the uttermost parts of the north, and all his hordes; even many peoples with you. Be prepared, yes, prepare yourself, you, and all your companies who are assembled to you, and be a guard to them. After many days you shall be visited: in the latter years you shall come into THE LAND THAT IS BROUGHT BACK FROM THE SWORD, that is gathered out of many peoples, on the mountains of Yisra'el, which have been a continual waste; but it is brought forth out of the peoples, and they shall dwell securely, all of them. You shall ascend, you shall come like a storm, you shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your hordes, and many peoples with you. Thus says YAH Elohim: IT SHALL HAPPEN IN THAT DAY, THAT THINGS SHALL COME INTO YOUR MIND, AND YOU SHALL DEVISE AN EVIL DEVICE: (Ezekiel 38:6-10 RNEB)

At this point Satan has been released and that's why a evil thought has entered into their mind after one thousand years of peace.

    and you shall say, I will go up to THE LAND OF UNWALLED VILLAGES; I will go to those who are at rest, who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates; (Ezekiel 38:11 RNEB)

They are going to a land of unwalled villages, because this was a time of peace, there was no need for any type of defense, the gates were constantly opened as YAH said would take place. We also see there going to those "who are at rest," we covered this in the writings of the prophets and Shaul, this event occurs at the end of the millennial reign. During this time everyone had been released from their burdens and oppressions, they were literally at rest.

    to take the spoil and to take the prey; to turn your hand against the waste places that are [now] inhabited, and against the people who are gathered out of the nations, who have gotten livestock and goods, who dwell in the middle of the earth. Sheva, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions of it, shall tell you, Are you come to take the spoil? have you assembled your company to take the prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great spoil? Therefore, son of man, prophesy, and tell Gog, Thus says YAH Elohim: In that day when my people Yisra'el dwells securely, shall you not know it? You shall come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you, and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army; and you shall come up against my people Yisra'el, as a cloud to cover the land: it shall happen in the latter days, that I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when I shall be sanctified in you, Gog, before their eyes. Thus says YAH Elohim: Are you he of whom I spoke in old time by my servants the prophets of Yisra'el, who prophesied in those days for [many] years that I would bring you against them? It shall happen in that day, when Gog shall come against Eretz-Yisra'el, says YAH Elohim, that my wrath shall come up into my nostrils. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in Eretz-Yisra'el; so that the fish of the sea, and the birds of the sky, and the animals of the field, and all creeping things who creep on the earth, and all the men who are on the surface of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. I will call for a sword against him to all my mountains, says YAH Elohim: every man's sword shall be against his brother. WITH PESTILENCE AND WITH BLOOD WILL I ENTER INTO JUDGMENT WITH HIM; AND I WILL RAIN ON HIM, AND ON HIS HORDES, AND ON THE MANY PEOPLES WHO ARE WITH HIM, AN OVERFLOWING SHOWER, AND GREAT HAILSTONES, FIRE, AND SULFUR. I will magnify myself, and sanctify myself, and I will make myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am YAH. (Ezekiel 38:12-23 RNEB)

Yochanan the Revelator gave us a glimpse, he said Satan is released from prison, and he goes and deceives the nations, Gog and Magog, to gather them against Yerushalayim. However, to see the details we needed to look at the events as outlined by the prophets of the old testament.

Satan, the Adversary has raised this great army just to have them slaughtered.

Satan, The Adversary

    that you will take up this parable against the king of Babel, and say, "How the oppressor has ceased! The golden city has ceased!" YAH has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers, who struck the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, who ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that none restrained. The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet. They break out song. (Isaiah 14:4-7 RNEB)

This is Satan being bound for the first time, and the whole earth went into rest. Now were going to see him raised back up.

    Yes, the fir trees rejoice with you, with the cedars of Levanon, saying, "SINCE YOU ARE HUMBLED, NO LUMBERJACK HAS COME UP AGAINST US." (Isaiah 14:8 RNEB)

Since the Adversary was laid down no one had come up against them.

    grave from beneath has moved for you to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you, even all the rulers of the earth. It has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. They all will answer and ask you, "Have you also become as weak as we are? Have you become like us?" Your pride is brought down to the grave, with the sound of your stringed instruments. Maggots are spread out under you, and worms cover you. How you have fallen from heaven, Helel, son of the dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, "I will ascend into heaven! I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim! I will sit on the mountain of assembly, in the far north! I will ascend above the heights of the clouds! I will make myself like the Most High!" Yet you shall be brought down to grave, to the depths of the pit. Those who see you will stare at you. They will ponder you, saying, "Is this the man who made the earth to tremble, who shook kingdoms; who made the world like a wilderness, and overthrew its cities; who didn't release his prisoners to their home?" All the kings of the nations, sleep in glory, everyone in his own house. But you are cast away from your tomb like an abominable branch, clothed with the slain, who are thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit; like a dead body trodden under foot. You will not join them in burial, because you have destroyed your land. You have killed your people. The seed of evil-doers will not be named forever. Prepare for slaughter of his children because of the lawlessness of their fathers, that they not rise up and possess the earth, and fill the surface of the world with cities. (Isaiah 14:9-21 RNEB)

White Throne Judgment

    I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them. (Revelation 20:11 RNEB)

Satan is gone now! After the thousand year rule, Satan was loosed to go out and entice the nations, he brought the nations against Yisrael, there was no fight, YAH himself destroyed them. After this takes place it's now time to judge everyone that remains on the face of the earth. The beast and false prophet have already been thrown in the lake of fire. Now Satan after the thousand years is being throne in the lake of fire, and its time for the great white throne judgment. The people who did not die by the time of this judgment will be transformed into immortals in an instant.

    I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works. The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and grave gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works. Death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:12-15 RNEB)

Now lets see what happens after final judgment, where everyone left is now immortal.

The New City

    I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more. I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from Elohim, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21:1-2 RNEB)

This is a new city Yerushalayim, this is not the one we read about in Isaiah chapter sixty five, it had to do with a new system, this new Yerushalayim was prepared in heaven, and is coming down to the earth.

    I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, Elohim's dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and ELOHIM HIMSELF WILL BE WITH THEM AS THEIR ELOHIM. (Revelation 21:3 RNEB)

Elohim will dwell with them, this is a new age, only immortals are dwelling on the face of the earth, the theocratic age is over.

    He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4 RNEB)

There is no more death, because death and hell have already been cast into the lake of fire, which is the second death so after this, there was no more death.

    He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." He said, "Write, for these words of Elohim are faithful and true." He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alef and the Tav, the Beginning and the End. I will give freely to him who is thirsty from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes, I will give him these things. I will be his Elohim, and he will be my son. But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death." One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who were loaded with the seven last plagues came, and he spoke with me, saying, "Come here. I will show you the wife, the Lamb's bride." He carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from Elohim, having the glory of Elohim. Her light was like a most precious stone, as if it was a jasper stone, clear as crystal; having a great and high wall; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Yisra'el. On the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve Emissaries of the Lamb. He who spoke with me had for a measure, a golden reed, to measure the city, its gates, and its walls. The city lies foursquare, and its length is as great as its breadth. He measured the city with the reed, Twelve thousand twelve stadia. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Its wall is one hundred forty-four cubits, by the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. The construction of its wall was jasper. The city was pure gold, like pure glass. The foundations of the city's wall were adorned with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sappir; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, yahalom; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, jacinth; and the twelfth, amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls. Each one of the gates was made of one pearl. The street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. I saw no temple in it, for YAH Elohim, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple. (Revelation 21:5-22 RNEB)

The New Yerushalayim was over 1400 miles square and 1400 miles high. A large portion of it will be in space. This is what all the patriarchs were looking for, a city made by Elohim, it's being described here in all its splendor, it's our reward for being obedient, and walking righteously before YAH.

This city came down after the theocratic age, it can't come until the earth has been completely cleansed and there is no more sin.

    The city has no need for the sun, neither of the moon, to shine, for the very glory of Elohim illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk in its light. The kings of the earth bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. Its gates will in no way be shut by day (for there will be no night there), (Revelation 21:23-25 RNEB)

The Elohim of Yisrael is living here in His glory, he doesn't have to appear to us now because were immortal. At this point were sons of the resurrection, and just like those within the divine order. YAH stands in his natural state, and just his presence alone will light up the entire city, all 2,250,000 square feet and 3.375 billion cubic feet.

    and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it so that they may enter. There will in no way enter into it anything profane, or one who causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life. (Revelation 21:26-27 RNEB)
    There will be no curse any more. The throne of Elohim and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. (Revelation 22:3-4 RNEB)

Remember what Elohim said to Moshe, no one can look on my face, for they shall surely die, now everyone can see his face because there all immortals.

    There will be no night, and they need no lamp light; for YAH Elohim will illuminate them. They will reign forever and ever. He said to me, "These words are faithful and true. YAH Elohim of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to show to his bondservants the things which must happen soon." (Revelation 22:5-6 RNEB)

All the trials and tribulations we go through in this time, are used to determine whether we are worthy to inherit eternal life. We must not forsake our calling which is to serve YAH our Elohim. We can't put anything before serving YAH, and to serve him correctly we must understand all his laws and ordinances, and the witness of the prophets.

    "Behold, I come quickly. BLESSED IS HE WHO KEEPS THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK." Now I, Yochanan, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who had shown me these things. He said to me, "See you don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship Elohim." He said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still. He who is holy, let him be holy still." "Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work. I am the Alef and the Tav, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, THAT THEY MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE, AND MAY ENTER IN BY THE GATES INTO THE CITY. (Revelation 22:7-14 RNEB)

Look at his closing statement, those who keep his commandments are blessed, and will be the only ones with the right to the tree of life, eternal life. If we forsake his laws we cannot inherit eternal life.

    Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. I, Yahshua, have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David; the Bright and Morning Star." The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" He who hears, let him say, "Come!" He who is thirsty, let him come. He who desires, let him take the water of life freely. (Revelation 22:15-17 RNEB)

Summing Up

Yahshua said to the Apostles:

    Pray like this: 'Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. Let your Kingdom come. Let your will be done, as in heaven, so on earth. (Matthew 6:9-10 RNEB)

This study was an opportunity to examine the scriptures to see exactly what type of kingdom would be coming to the earth. We examined what would bring about the theocratic kingdom and the theocratic order. We seen the rise of the two beasts, the political system, and ecclesiastical power. Then we looked at the prophesies concerning the tribulation that's going to come on the earth during the final three and a half years, which includes judgment, the second advent of Yahshua, second advent judgment of the beast and false prophet, and imprisonment of Satan. Finally, at the end of the theocratic age, a new age will dawn where we live with YAH our Elohim as immortals in a New City.
