    A Message to the People of God

    Exodus 23:20 “See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”John 16:13But when he(she), the Spirit of truth(the angel of truth), comes, he(she) will guide you into all the truth. He(She) will not speak on his(her) own; he(she) will speak only what he(she) hears, and he(she) will tell you what is yet to come.John 14:16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he (she) may abide with you for ever;1 Corinthians 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

    Revelation 12:9 This great dragon–the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world–was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.

    Jeremiah 50 6 “My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds have led them astray Revelation 18:4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; Matthew 15:9″But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” 2 Thessalonians 2 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie Isaiah 42:6f I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

    This section of Isaiah(taken from the Voice Translation) is written to a singular female as she is the mother of the Jews. But this woman isn’t just any woman—she is Jerusalem – The Daughter of Jerusalem, Israel, Judah and Zion. Cities are often described as female because they are like mothers supporting a brood of children (the population).

    Isaiah 60 Arise, shine, for your light has broken through! The Eternal One’s brilliance has dawned upon you.2 See truly; look carefully—darkness blankets the earth; people all over are cloaked in darkness(deception).But God will rise and shine on you; the Eternal’s bright glory( Shekinah light) will shine on you, a light for all to see.3 Nations north and south, peoples east and west, will be drawn to your light, will find purpose and direction by your light. In the radiance of your rising, you will enlighten the leaders of nations.

    Eternal One: I punished you because I was furious with you, reduced you to little on account of your persistent wrongdoing; But I will restore you, reclaim you, and rebuild you because I cannot help but love you.11 Now your gates will stay open to a constant stream of gifts; all day and night they will not be shut As the wealth of nations is brought to you with their kings leading the processions.
    12 Any nations that abstain, any peoples who decline from serving you will simply disappear; they will be destroyed.14 And all the children of those who had bullied you, attacked and abused you, all those who hated you will come crawling on their knees and bowing at your feet. And they will address you as “city of God, place of the Eternal, the Holy One of Israel’s Zion, sweet heaven on earth.”17 I will bring you gold instead of bronze, silver instead of iron, bronze instead of wood, iron instead of stone.
    Your government will be founded and grounded; I will make peace your governor, and righteousness your ruler. 18 You’ll never hear again, “Help! Call the guards!” Violence, destruction, and ruin will be things of the past in Jerusalem (the whole earth). You will name the city walls Salvation, and the city gates Praise.19 You (referring to the woman – the Daughter of Jerusalem, Israel, Judah and Zion) won’t need the sun to brighten the day or the moon and lamps to give you light. The Eternal One will be all the light you ever need. Your God will provide your glory(light), brilliance for all time.20 Your sun will never set; your moon will never be eclipsed in shadow, For you’ll bask in the Eternal’s light and silver splendour  forever .Never again will you suffer the dark night of despair and gloom of mourning.21 All the people will be right with God, and they’ll stay in the land(the earth) they possess forever.

    Isaiah 49
    6 Eternal One: As My servant you will do even more than this, even more than restoring Jacob’s family to Me And making Israel right with Me again. I will make you a light for the nations, And You will illumine them until My salvation reaches to the ends of the earth.[a]Eternal One: At the sight of you, kings will rise and princes will bow down, for I, the Eternal, faithful and true, the Holy One of Israel, have chosen you(The Daughter of Zion, Israel, Jerusalem and Judah).

    8 Eternal One: When the time was right, I answered you; on the day you were delivered, I was your help.[b ] I will watch over you, and give you as a promise, a binding covenant to the people. Through you, My gift to the people, the land of promise(the kingdom of heaven) will recover. Ancestral ground, once deserted, will be entrusted to them.9 Through you, My gift to the people, I will declare to the prisoners, “Come out. Now you are free”;To those who are held in darkness, “Come out into the light.”10 Wherever they are, they will be fine, never hungry nor thirsty. They will be protected from oppressive heat and the burning sun Because the One who loves them—as a mother loves her child—will be their guide.

    15 Eternal One: Is it possible for a mother, however disappointed, however hurt, to forget her nursing child? Can she feel nothing for the baby she carried and birthed? Even if she could, I, God, will never forget you.16 Look here. I have made you a part of Me, written you on the palms of My hands. Your city walls are always on My mind, always My concern.
    17 Now sweet Zion your children are running pell-mell back to you Just as fast as those who destroyed you are leaving.18 Raise your head, lift up your eyes, and watch your heart’s desire come—All your children, gathered and returning to you. As I live, so I promise. You will wear them with pride all like shining ornaments; you will put them on as a bride on her wedding day.

    Revelation 21
    21 I looked again and could hardly believe my eyes. Everything above me was new. Everything below me was new. Everything around me was new because the heaven and earth(violence in heaven and on earth) that had been passed away, and the sea(beast out of the sea – evil people) was gone, completely. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem(Daughter of Jerusalem, Israel, Judah and Zion – the woman), descending out of heaven(Light) from God, prepared like a bride on her wedding day, adorned for her husband and for His eyes only.3 And I heard a great voice, coming from the throne. A Voice: See, the home of God is with His people. He will live among them; They will be His people, And God Himself will be with them.4 The prophecies are fulfilled: He will wipe away every tear from their eyes.[a]Death will be no more; Mourning no more, crying no more, pain no more, For the first things have gone away.

    Heavenly Messenger: Come with me, and I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.10 He took me away in the Spirit and set me on top of a great, high mountain. As I waited for what I thought was a bride, he showed me the holy city, Jerusalem(the woman – the Daughter of Jerusalem, Israel, Judah and Zion), descending out of heaven(light) from God. 11 It gleamed and shined with the glory of God(Shekinah-Heavenly Mother); its radiance was like the most precious of jewels, like jasper, and it was as clear as crystal.(It’s brilliance of various colors was brighter than that of glistening jewels).22 And in the city(woman), I found no temple(building) because the Lord God, the All Powerful, and the Lamb are the temple(ark-physical Light). 23 And in the city(the woman), there is no need for the sun to light the day or moon the night because the resplendent glory(light) of the Lord (Shekinah-Our Heavenly Mother)provides the city(woman her Daughter) with warm, beautiful light and the Lamb(the Son of God) illumines every corner of the new Jerusalem(new earth).(He will appear as the Light of the world from above – The Daughter of Jerusalem, Israel, Judah and Zion same person her light will shine from her body (the tabernacle of God).

    Heaven means light – will be coming to earth through a woman. The same glory (light) that Jesus Christ walked with on the earth over 2000 years ago.
    Psalm 132:13 – “The LORD has chosen Zion(Daughter of Zion), He has desired it(her) for HIS dwelling. This is My resting place forever and ever, here will I sit enthroned, for I have desired it(her)”.

    Micah 4
    1-4 But when all is said and done, GOD’s Temple(Daughter of Zion) on the mountain(she lives on a mountain),Firmly fixed, will dominate all mountains towering above surrounding hills.
    People will stream to it and many nations set out for it, Saying, “Come, let’s climb GOD’s mountain. Let’s go to the Temple of Jacob’s God. He will teach us how to live. We’ll know how to live God’s way.” True teaching will issue from Zion (Daughter of Zion),GOD’s revelation from Jerusalem(the Daughter of Jerusalem).

    6 Eternal One: In that day of hope, I will gather the lame, bring together all those who have been driven away and those whom I have injured.7 From those who were lame I will create a remnant, and from those who were cast off I will create a strong nation; And the Eternal will reign over them in Mount Zion(Daughter of Zion) now and forevermore.8 And to you, the tower of the flock, the hill of the daughter of Zion, your former authority (the kingdom of heaven on earth) will return to you, the royal authority of the daughter of Jerusalem. (See Lamentations Chapter 2 the kingdom belonged to the Daughter of Zion and she is from heaven) [a]How the Lord has covered Daughter Zion with the cloud of his anger[b]!He has hurled down the splendor(Light) of Israel from heaven to earth;he has not remembered his footstool in the day of his anger.2 Without pity the Lord has swallowed up all the dwellings of Jacob; in his wrath he has torn down the strongholds of Daughter Judah.
    He has brought her kingdom and its princes down to the ground in dishonor.)

    Micah 4
    3 He will arbitrate among the nations and dictate to strong nations far away. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nations shall no longer fight each other, for all war will end. There will be universal peace, and all the military academies and training camps will be closed down.
    4 Everyone will live quietly in his own home in peace and prosperity, for there will be nothing to fear. The Lord himself has promised this. 5 (Therefore we will follow the Lord our God forever and ever, even though all the nations around us worship idols!)
    6 In that coming day, the Lord says that he will bring back his punished people—sick and lame and dispossessed— 7 and make them strong again in their own land, a mighty nation, and the Lord himself shall be their King from Mount Zion(Jamaica) forever. 8 O Jerusalem(Daughter of Jerusalem)—the Watchtower(tower of the flock) of God’s people—your royal might and power will come back to you again, just as before.

    Revelation 21
    5 And the One who sat on the throne announced to His creation, The One: See, I am making all things new. (turning to me) Write what you hear and see, for these words are faithful and true. 6 It is done! I am the Alpha(Father) and the Omega(Mother), the beginning and the end. I will see to it that the thirsty drink freely from the fountain of the water of life(their heavenly Mother). 7 To the victors will go this inheritance: I will be their God, and they will be My children. 8 It will not be so for the cowards, the faithless, the sacrilegious, the murderers, the sexually immoral, the sorcerers, the idolaters, and all those who deal in deception. They will inherit an eternity in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

    Matthew 3:2 “Repent ! Turn to God and change the way you think and act, because the kingdom of heaven(light) is near.”
    Colossians 1:12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.

But during this time your people, those whose names have been written in the book of life, will be liberated. 2 And many who sleep the sleep of death in the dust of the earth will awake, some to eternal life with the Lord and others to utter shame and eternal disgrace far from Him. 9 It is time for you to go on your way, Daniel, for the words must be kept secret and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will keep themselves pure and clean and refined despite the pressures of these times, but those who are wicked will continue their wicked ways and none of them will ever understand. But those who are wise will.

    • Spiritual warfare was placed in the bible – the book of knowledge of good and evil(God vs. the Devil –good vs evil – truth vs lies)
    John 8:32 “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
    If you know the truth, then that knowledge you obtain, that truth will set you free. But free from what?

    The freedom we obtain from the truth is the freedom from ignorance, primarily the ignorance of spiritual things. Now we are all aware of the bondage we have of not knowing certain things. If a person has no education than his opportunities are limited. A person who is illiterate will face many closed doors and will have difficulty even finding the most menial of jobs. If this is true in our secular society, imagine the impact this has on a spiritual level. A person who is illiterate of spiritual truths will not be able to thrive spiritually. Religious leaders were ignorant of spiritual things but they lacked the truth, and so one of the symptoms they had was that they were ignorant of their spiritual condition. Look at John 8:33, “They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Now first of all they were ignorant of the facts. They had indeed been slaves, many times over; to the Egyptians, to the Babylonians, to many other times. But their spiritual ignorance was outrageous.

    They thought that just by being a descendant of Abraham gave them a special path to Heaven.

    Men and women of today would still rather walk in spiritual darkness. Most of the people of today are happy with the watered down, compromised gospel they hear. Many are happy with false doctrines and false religions that abound today. And many are just happy living with no form of religion at all. Most of these people are still staggering around indulging themselves in the sins of this world, not caring where they will spend eternity. Are you one of these that the Bible says would rather walk in confusion? Of course, if you desire to walk in darkness, that choice is yours.

    The darkness of this world is Satan’s playground. Deception, False Religions, Adultery, Fornication, Drugs, Alcohol and Sex is the name of the game. Even so called churches don’t want the truth of God’s Word, so they have settled for entertainment. It is so easy to deceive people, just give them what they want. So called Christians have allowed teachers and preachers to give them poison in place of the true gospel. When will someone stand up and say, “I will not dwell in spiritual confusion any longer. I will not be afraid to stand up for God’s true light in a world of dark shameful behavior.”
    Ecclesiastes 2:14 says, ”…the fool walketh in darkness…”
    John 12:35 says, ”…walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.”
    Isaiah 5:20 says, ”Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.”
    Ephesians 6:12 says, ”For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
    First John 1:5 says, ”This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
    John 12:46 says, ”I (Jesus) am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”
    Psalm 119:105 says, Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
    2 Peter 1:19
    We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

    Proverbs 6:23
    For this command is a lamp, this teaching is a light, and correction and instruction are the way to life,

    Those who embrace this light and truth are like those of whom the apostle Paul spoke when he said “You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.” (1 Thessalonians 5:5) These sons and daughters of light are eager to embrace the conviction found in Isaiah 8:20 where it says “To the law and to the testimony if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” That is to say that anyone who doesn’t teach in harmony with the “Law” of Moses as well as the “testimony” of the prophets which give witness to and affirm that Law, doesn’t have light or truth in them. They are children of darkness.

    “Light” itself as an element has often been used as an analogy for truth, as opposed to darkness which has often represented error, the perfect opposite of truth. When we find truth we often speak of ourselves as enlightened.

    Gen:1:3: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.(Shekinah Glory)
    What is God’s Shekinah glory?

    Origin of Light:
    The creation of light was the initial step in the creation of life. “Let there be light”(Shekinah Glory- Heavenly Mother) (Gen 1:3) was the first word of God spoken after His creative Spirit(Heavenly Mother – The Holy Spirit) “moved” upon the primary material out of which He ( Heavenly Father)created the heavens and the earth and which lay, until the utterance of that word, in the chaos of darkness and desolation.

    The word “Shekinah” is a Hebrew word referring to the effulgent Glory(Light) that shines for from the presence of the Most High God. The translations of the Bible do not use the word Shekinah, but call it a light a Radiant light.
    Adam and Eve, the progenitors of the Adamic race, were enveloped with Shekinah Glory as they walked the earth in their beginning. From ancient books we learn that the children of Lucifer said, “We can not stand the light of them.” Thus SATAN seduced Eve in order to bring their fall so that they would lose their Glory(physical Light).
    Because Adam and Eve were clothed in God’s “Shekinah glory”, they were not aware that they were naked.
    The “Shekinah glory” protected them from all harm and it was all they needed. (Genesis 2:25: And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed)
    Man was pure and holy, made in the image of God. The Spirit of God is holy and will not rest on anything unholy. The Glory of God that surrounded man then, was called the “Shekinah glory”.
    As God created man, the Spirit of God(Heavenly Mother) found a resting place and settled on man, Adam and Eve. In Genesis 1, the Spirit of God hovered over the deep of the Earth and did not settle anywhere or on any thing because as the dove couldn’t find a resting place after the flood of Noah, so the Spirit of God couldn’t find any resting place, after Adam. When man sinned, the Spirit of God or the “Shekinah glory” left them.
    We read about the glory of God again in the Exodus of Israel where the Glory was in the cloud (symbolic of the Holy Spirit) that went out before them in the day and gave them light at night. She protected them but She did not settle on them.
    We read that Moses went up the mountain Sinai and the glory of God (Shekinah)was on the mountain. The Shekinah glory showed on the face of Moses after 80 days in the Presence of God, He almost shone like Adam and Eve from old. The people were scared of Moses because rays of light shone from his face. They asked Moses to cover his face. (Exodus 34:29-30: When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tables of the Testimony in his hand, he did not know that the skin of his face shone and sent forth beams by reason of his speaking with  God. When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they feared to come near him)
    Then God gave Moses the order to build a Tabernacle (the shadow or type of Yeshua (Jesus) and also the Ark of the Covenant, with the mercy seat (also a shadow or type of Christ). The Glory of God (Holy Spirit or “Shekinah glory”) came and settled (rested) on the mercy seat among the people in a visible manner. That only happened after the mercy seat was made holy by the blood of a sacrificial animal.
    After the Ark was lost to Israel, the “Shekinah Glory” of God was also lost for a time.
    We read that the Spirit or “Shekinah glory” did not rest on anyone after that but only occasionally “came upon” the prophets and kings in the Old Testament to do the work of God, but never settled.
    We read In the New Testament that when Yeshua (Jesus) was baptised with water, the Holy Spirit came (in the form of a dove) and settled(Shakan) on Him.

    The “Shekinah Glory” of God in the New Testament is not visible to the human eye but is spiritual and soon one day will become physical. We only see the “Shekinah Glory” of God on Yeshua (Jesus) when He was transformed on the mountain before His death. As Yeshua died on the cross and took the sins of the world upon Him, the “Shekinah Glory” of God left Him.
    After His resurrection, Yeshua (Jesus) gave His disciples the order to go to Jerusalem and to wait for the power (the outpouring) of the Her Spirit, the Holy Spirit. We see that after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost that the Spirit of God came and settled on them with Tongues of fire (“Shekinah Glory”) and they spoke in different tongues(languages).
    So these people must have been holy and acceptable for the Spirit of God to come and settle upon them. They were sanctified (made holy) by the work (blood) of Yeshua on the cross. As Noah fled into the ark and was saved from destruction so we must flee into the ark of grace, God’s Glory, His “Shekinah Glory” and be saved.

    Trust in God is the result of a choice. God’s way of life was not the only choice Adam and Eve faced. The serpent presented Eve with an alternative, convincing her that his approach was the better way. He persuaded her that God had withheld important information from her, that God was misleading her (Genesis 3:1-6). Eve then persuaded Adam to join her in rebelling against God’s instruction by partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:15-17).
    As a result, another “ruler” (John 12:31), the one who exercises influence over “all the kingdoms of the world” (Matthew 4:7-9), could introduce humanity to a different way of life. This ruler is “that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world” (Revelation 12:9). But by listening to him they lost everything.
    Over time he has even introduced a counterfeit religious message, a “different gospel” (Galatians 1:6-8) that is opposed to God’s plan and His purpose for us.
    We must understand the significance of Satan introducing to humanity a different way of life, a way opposed to God. Satan’s message is cloaked in acceptable, sounding language that seems right to our natural way of thinking (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).
    He has even convinced most people that God’s ways are foolish (1 Corinthians 2:14). In so doing, Satan has become not only the ruler but the “god” of this age (2 Corinthians 4:4). Paul refers to him as “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2).

    The “Shekinah glory” of God left mankind because of sin. The protection of God was now gone and man began to die. Man was ashamed of his sin and hid himself from the holiness of God. God called Adam not because He wanted to know where Adam was, He knew where they were, but because God wanted to know where their relationship was. He knew that He said that they should surely “die” – “die” (spirit and flesh) if they eat from the tree of knowledge.
    God is perfect in all His ways and because He had said that they will surely die, He had to perform His word and they should have died there and then. But yet God did not let them die immediately. Have you ever wondered why?
    Let me explain: God had a redemption plan for mankind; He had a plan for the salvation of mankind.
    God showed mercy towards man by killing an animal in his place to cover his sin. Sin brought death onto the earth. (Genesis 3:21: Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them)
    The skins and blood of the animal covered their sins. God showed mankind the way to salvation by using the blood of the lamb as a type of the blood of the Messiah (saviour).

    The Messiah would be the “Seed of a Woman”( The woman in Revelation 12 – The Holy Spirit- The Shekinah).

    LIGHT
    Remember, on the first day of creation, God separated light from darkness. This was not the light of daytime as we know it, but the light of the revelation of God to his creation, which was about to be created. It was the light, or knowledge, or revelation, that there was a god. This was the first creation, and the one which John says is the first one men would be held responsible for, and judged for what they did with this knowledge. This was covered in the first three chapters of Revelation.

    This light is symbolized throughout the Bible, sometimes as the Shekinah cloud, sometimes as glory, or glory of the Lord, often in the New Testament as the church, and in Revelation as the light of the New Jerusalem.

    The ultimate focusing of light (on the 4th day of creation, Gen 1:14) in suns, stars, and solar systems brought the initial creative process to completion, as the essential condition of all organic life. The origin of light thus finds its explanation in the purpose and very nature of God whom John defines as not only the Author of light but, in an all-inclusive sense, as light itself: “God is light” (1 Jn 1:5).

    A Comprehensive Term:
    The word “light” is Divinely rich in its comprehensiveness and meaning. Its material splendor is used throughout the Scriptures as the symbol and synonym of all that is luminous and radiant in the mental, moral and spiritual life of men and angels; while the eternal God, because of His holiness and moral perfection, is pictured as “dwelling in light unapproachable” (1 Tim 6:16). Every phase of the word, from the original light in the natural world to the spiritual glory of the celestial, is found in Holy Writ.
    (1) Natural Light.
    The light of day (Gen 1:5); of sun, moon and stars; “lights in the firmament” (Gen 1:14-18; Ps 74:16; 136:7; 148:3; Eccl 12:2; Rev 22:5). Its characteristics are beauty, radiance, utility. It “rejoiceth the heart” (Prov 15:30); “Truly the light is sweet” (Eccl 11:7); without it men stumble and are helpless (Jn 11:9,10); it is something for which they wait with inexpressible longing (Job 30:26; compare Ps 130:6). Life, joy, activity and all blessings are dependent upon light.
    “And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the Lord (Jehovah): for he hath heard your murmurings. And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory(Light) of the Lord appeared in the cloud.”

    This shows that the brightness of the cloud was associated with the glory(Light), or presence of the Lord, and that this was the place where he dwelt among them.

    In Exodus 19:16-18, when God called Moses up on mount Sinai, it says,
    “And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.”

    Again, this shows that the cloud of fire, or light, was the dwelling, or shekinah, of the Lord. Exodus 24:16 states quite clearly that this was the glory of God:
    “And the glory(Light) of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.”

    This cloud guided the people until later in their wanderings when the Lord told Moses to build him a tabernacle (Exodus 25:8). Exodus 29:43-46 says,
    “And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory(Light). And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest’s office. And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God. And they shall know that I am the Lord their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the Lord their God.”

    The dominant idea of the shekinah as a dwelling for the Lord is actually more an indwelling. This is shown by several scriptures in the New Testament. Matthew 16:27 says,
    “For the Son of man shall come in the glory(Light) of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”

    We have already established that the glory of the Lord and the shekinah cloud are synonymous terms.

    In Acts l:9, Jesus ascended to the Father,
    “And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.”

    Acts 1:11 says,
    “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”

    Jesus was taken up in the Shekinah glory, or cloud, and he will return in the glory(Light) of the Father, or in the Shekinah cloud, in which he left.
    The Shekinah cloud, or glory of the Lord, or bright light, not only declared the presence of God, but also his approval. Matthew 17:1-5 says,
    “And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”

    Here, the cloud represented not only the presence of God, but also his approval of the person upon whom it was bestowed.

    John 1:14 also referred to the transfiguration:
    “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory(light), the glory(light) as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

    In Luke 2:9, what the angel told the shepherds shows the approval of God by the presence of the shekinah glory cloud.
    “And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory(light) of the Lord (Shekinah)shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.”

    When Stephen was stoned, he was allowed to see this great light, or glory, in heaven. Acts 7:55 says,
    “But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory(Light) of God(Shekinah), and Jesus standing on the right hand of God.”
    These scriptures concerning the return of Jesus reveal that it will be associated with the light, glory of the Lord, or shekinah cloud, however it may be referred to.

    There are also a number of scriptures in Revelation which refer to the phenomenon of the cloud, glory, or light of the Lord.

    Revelation 21:23-24 says,
    “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God(Shekinah) did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.”

    Revelation 22:5 continues,
    “And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.”
    The Spirit Hovering Over The Waters

    Genesis 1:2
    Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God(Holy Spirit – Heavenly Mother) was hovering over the waters.

    This phrase in the opening lines of the Bible is really fascinating when you think about it. It gives us the first glimpse that God is a multifaceted being; if God’s spirit is hovering, then there must be another part of him doing something else. We quickly discover that another part of God is speaking- ‘and God said.’ So Genesis 1 one can give us some clues as to the nature of the different parts of God.

    The Spirit’s hovering was the first thing ever done, the first action ever performed. When everything else is formless and empty, it is an action that stands out. It must be significant, aren’t firsts always significant? The detail cannot have been placed without good reason, the first thing EVER, according to the bible was the spirit hovering over the waters, even before God spoke there was this action.
    The Hebrew word that is translated as hovered, or moved is the word Rahap, rahap is used in one other place in the Torah (Pentateuch) and that is in Deuteronomy when it describes the way God cares for his people that he’s brought out of the chaos of the world.
    ‘For Elohim’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance. In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye, like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young’ (Deuteronomy 32:9-11)

    Translated as hover in the NIV, rahap describes the way a mother eagle cares for, and hovers over its young. Taking this reference back to Genesis 1, one finds a number of interesting things beginning to happen. There is a correlation between the ‘barren and howling waste’ of the desert land and the ‘formless and empty’ earth in the beginning. It also brings a feminine picture of mothering that compliments the male authority and patriarchal quality of the speech of God.

    The Hebrew word for moved means brooded or hovered, as when a mother bird broods over her eggs to bring forth life. This indicates that after God’s judgment God did something to bring forth life. The situation was really waste and void, and there was darkness upon the depth of the water. Then the Spirit of God(Holy Spirit – Heavenly Mother) came in to brood, to hover, over the situation in order to produce life.
    Following this, from Genesis 1:3 to the end of chapter two, there is a long record of how life was brought forth through the brooding of the Spirit. These two chapters are full of striking significances. Every detail of these two chapters has some significance. You should not merely read the letters in black and white; rather, you must know the significance of what you read. In Genesis 1:2 we read about the Spirit. What is the significance of the Spirit here? In the Bible the Spirit always signifies life. What is the significance of the waste, void, darkness, and deep water? All these signify a disaster, and even death. These are all negative things. Then all of a sudden something good came, that is, the Spirit. The Spirit came not to rebuke, not to condemn, but to brood, as a mother bird broods over the eggs.
    In the book of Ezekiel, Ezekiel is met by God who arrives in glory, sitting on a throne in the centre of a storm held up by four bizarre and terrible creatures. God comes to speak to Ezekiel, and one of the amazing things about the passage is that like Genesis 1, it is a moment when different parts of God are named and seen to be enacting different roles for the same purpose. So there is God on the throne, the text (Ezekiel 2:2) says that the spirit entered Ezekiel and raised him to his feet. In the passage Ezekiel is given a duty, which is to deliver God’s message to Israel, but he is also empowered to do so by the spirit that raises him. This passage shows God speaking and the spirit doing an action, earlier on in the meeting the throne, storm, and creatures are coming toward Ezekiel, their course guided by the Spirit, ‘wherever the Spirit would go they would go.’ So just like in Genesis 1 movement and action define the Spirit.
    God and the Spirit work together in unity. The Spirit acting as a helpmate. Where do we find the first account of God working together with the Spirit in the beginning?

    Proverbs Chapter 8
    22“The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,c d before his deeds of old;23I was formed long ages ago,at the very beginning, when the world came to be.24When there were no watery depths, I was brought forth,when there were no springs overflowing with water;25before the mountains were settled in place,before the hills, I was brought forth 26before he made the world or its fields or any of the dust of the earth.27I was there when he set the heavens in place,when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,28when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, 29when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.30Then I was constantly at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, 31rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.
    The above verse indicates that it is Wisdom speaking. Verse 1 in Chapter 8 confirms this and Wisdom is personified as female “her”.

    1Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?
    Wisdom is The Holy Spirit – The Spirit of Wisdom.
    Isaiah 11:2
    The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD—
    Ephesians 1:17
    I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

    Deuteronomy 34:9
    Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the LORD had commanded Moses.

    Matthew 11:19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say,’Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children. ”

    The word wisdom occurs over 320 times in the bible not referring to human wisdom but the wisdom of God – Heavenly Father’s wife our Heavenly Mother.

    How many times is the word Holy Spirit mentioned in the OT in the bible? In the NIV it occurs three times:
    Psalm 51:11 “Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.”
    Isaiah 63:10 “Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit.”
    Isaiah 63:11 “Where is he who set his Holy Spirit among them,”

    However, given that the shekinah glory in the Most Holy part of the tabernacle / temple was the Spirit of God, there are many more references to the Holy Spirit. Likewise in Genesis chapter 1, the creation account, the Holy Spirit was inseparable from the decree of God. So if God is Holy (and he most certainly is!) so is his Spirit.

    Most often in the Hebrew text it is “Spirit of YHVH” (the “covenant name” of God, sometimes mistakenly rendered “Jehovah”) or “Spirit of God” (Elohim). In Psalms and Isaiah and there are other places where it says ‘His Spirit’ meaning the spirit of God. The bible also calls the Holy Spirit ( Spirit of the Lord).

    Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost is mentioned 93 times in the New International Version… 3 times in the OT and 90 in the NT.

    The Hebrew word for “spirit,” “ruach,” occurs together with YHWH or Elohim in 142 verses. Most of those instances would refer to God’s Spirit.

    The word Spirit is feminine.

    The nature of the spiritual birth by the Holy Spirit points directly to a feminine Holy Spirit

     

    Quoting from John 3:

     

    There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; the same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered, and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound of it, but canst not tell from where it cometh, and where it goeth; so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered, and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered, and said unto him, Art thou a teacher of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that which we do know, and testify to that which we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

     

    Acts Chapter 2 makes a singular association between this rebirth described in John 3 and the Holy Spirit, identifying the Holy Spirit as the Birther. Because gender weakness is frowned upon in the passages cited above as well as the proscription against homosexuality in both Testaments, the Holy Spirit must be identified as functionally feminine.

     

    A Feminine Church suggests a feminine Holy Spirit

     

    The femininity of the spiritual Church was established in the article entitled The Church, the Bride, the Body and the New Jerusalem. The spiritual Church, being a feminine entity and the Bride of Christ, requires Jesus Christ to be gendered. This was the great mystery of which Paul spoke in Ephesians 5:31 and 32:

     

    For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and His Church.

     

    This relationship between Christ and His Church elicits a profound question, one that can be answered rationally only one way: why, if Jesus partakes of both gender and marriage, would the Father and the Holy Spirit not?

    Given the male gender of the Father, the obvious answer is that the Holy Spirit is the feminine Spouse of the Father.

    The feminine Shekinah Glory points to a feminine Holy Spirit

    Perhaps the most significant suggestion of femininity in the Bible may be found in the property of indwelling, a characteristic of the Holy Spirit that strongly connects the New Testament with the Old.

    That the Old Testament Shekinah is the New Testament’s Holy Spirit is manifestly evident in the precursor role to the indwelling Holy Spirit of the Shekinah Glory who indwelt both the Tabernacle in the wilderness and Solomon’s Temple at their dedications. Since it has been claimed that the word Shekinah does not exist in the Hebrew Scriptures in its noun form (the situation there being similar to the absence in the Bible of a noun form of the word baptize), the following commentary will be made regarding its origin before proceeding with examples of the Shekinah presence.

    In the Hebrew Targum, the Aramaic translation of the Hebrew Old Testament, the word Shekinah is used as a noun. It means “intimate dwelling” or “the presence of the Glory (light)of the Lord”.   Justification for the use of this word is the use in the Hebrew Scriptures of its root word “shachan”, referring particularly to the pillars of cloud and fire that accompanied the Israelites in their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land through the wilderness. The prophet Isaiah referred to it quite graphically in Isaiah 4:5 and 6, linking this pillar of cloud and fire to a covering presence. It is generally understood that this same pillar is referenced in Isaiah 51:9 and 10, where the prophet goes out of his way to describe by feminine pronouns the same pillar of cloud and fire that accompanied the Israelites on their journey from Egypt. The Targum interpretation leaves no doubt that the Shekinah Glory is a feminine presence, and represents an equivalence with a feminine Holy Spirit. Isaiah 4:5 and 6, and 51:9 and 10 read as follows:

    “And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion , and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for upon all the glory shall be a defense. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.”

              “Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not she who hast cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? Art thou not she who has dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; who hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?”

     

     

     

    Exodus 40 and 1 Kings 8 provide prominent examples of the Shekinah as a precursor to the indwelling Holy Spirit of the New Testament. Exodus 40:33-38 describes the indwelling of the Tabernacle in the wilderness:

    “And [Moses] reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.

              “Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys; but if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.”

    The description “cloud of the Lord” , “fire by night” and “taken up” leaves no doubt that this “cloud” is equivalent to the Shekinah of the Red Sea adventure and of Isaiah 4:5. The corresponding incident with respect to Solomon’s Temple, taken from 1 Kings 8:6-13, is given below:

    And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord unto its place, into the inner sanctuary of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubim. For the cherubim spread forth their two wings of the place of the ark, and the cherubim covered the ark and its staves above. And they drew out the staves, that the ends of the staves were seen out in the holy place before the inner sanctuary, but they were not seen outside; and there they are unto this day. There was nothing in the ark except the two tables of stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when the lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt. And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the lord, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord. Then spoke Solomon, The Lord said he would dwell in the thick darkness. I have surely built thee an house to dwell in, a settled place for thee to abide in forever.”

    In this passage the meaning of “cloud” is closely linked with “dwelling place” and “glory of the Lord”, which again point to the phrase Shekinah Glory.

    The connection between these precursor events and the Holy Spirit who indwells Christian believers is given in 1 Corinthians 3:16 and Ephesians 2:19-22, wherein Paul asserts that the Church herself, through her constituents, is a temple indwelt by the Holy Spirit:

    Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

     

     

     

               Now, therefore, ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone, in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord; in whom ye also are built together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

    The facts embedded in these passages are no surprise to Christians, who generally accept without question that believers are indwelt with the Holy Spirit and comprise, as the Church, a holy temple. What some of us may not be aware of is that this temple and its indwelling by the Holy Spirit was represented numerous times as the Glory of God in the Old Testament. Turning to the Internet, the Wikipedia entry for “Shekinah” begins as follows:

    “Hebrew [Shekinah] is the English spelling of a grammatically feminine Hebrew ancient blessing. The original word means the dwelling or settling, and denotes the dwelling or settling of the divine presence of God, especially in the temple in Jerusalem.” An accompanying figure shows the Shekinah, or the Glory of God, indwelling the temple as described in 1 Kings 8.”

    Noting the female gender of this indwelling Shekinah, we find here by comparing the indwelling presence of the Glory in Solomon’s temple with the description in Ephesians 2 of the Holy Spirit indwelling the human temple that Scripture itself, by furnishing this direct comparison, supports an interpretation of the Holy Spirit as a female Entity in the face of conventional Christian thought, as driven by the use in Scripture of the male pronoun in reference to the Holy Spirit.

    This feminine gender attribute in Exodus 40 and 1 Kings 8 may have been simply lost in the translation from Hebrew (Aramaic) to English, which could have been a result of the lack of gender precision in the English language. (Actually, the first transference from feminine to masculine occurred in the Latin, for which the Holy Spirit was definitely presented as male.) But there is an associated gender misrepresentation in Isaiah 51:9, 10 that appears to be more deliberate. What the translators did in that passage was to substitute the grammatically incorrect ‘it’ for the gender-correct ‘she’ in reference to Shekinah. In their desire to maintain a fully masculine Godhead, they neutered the female. In the process, they inadvertently managed also to castrate their masculine God. As just one example of this removal of gender, Isaiah 51:9 and 10 refers to a neuter Arm of the Lord rather than the original feminine gender.

    Proverbs points to the femininity of the Holy Spirit

    The Book of Proverbs beautifully and harmoniously supports a female functional designation for the Holy Spirit., as the subject of this book is uniformly feminine, and whose functionality closely parallels that of the Holy Spirit. Of particular interest in this regard are Proverbs 3 and 8, from which the following excerpts are taken:

     

     

     

    “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. . .She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. . .The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. . .Doth not wisdom cry? And understanding put forth her voice? . . .The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men. Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.”

     

    Several items come to mind from the above review of these passages in Proverbs. The first is that the Persona is female throughout; an attempt to assign some of these passages to Jesus Christ, as many do, would constitute an unnatural force-fit, most obviously in the issue of gender, but also with respect to function and role. The second is directly related to function, wherein the passages suggest a connection between Wisdom and the Holy Spirit as furnishing the most likely Person to which a female function may be assigned; the third is that the Holy Spirit was active in creation itself, as summarized in Genesis 1:1-3:

    “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

    Jesus Himself, in Luke 7:35, associates Wisdom with motherhood, an eminently personal attribute.

    “But wisdom is justified of all her children.”

     While that verse possibly could be interpreted as being merely a figure of speech, Jesus in Luke 11:49 and 50 more emphatically personifies Wisdom:

    Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute, that the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation.”

     

    In further support of my equation of Wisdom with the Holy Spirit, I cite Isaiah 11:1 and 2:

    “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots; And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord,. . .”

    Another item that presents itself in a reading of Proverbs with an eye to the Personhood of Wisdom is the implied intimacy between mankind and Wisdom in the warning given in Proverbs 8:36: he that sins against Wisdom wrongs his own soul. Could this imply that our own purpose and function in the spiritual realm might actually parallel that of the Holy Spirit? There may well be a correlation between this caution and the one expressed by Jesus in Matthew 12:31 and 32:

    “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”

    These are strong words, and they make a strong connection between Wisdom and the Holy Spirit.

    “And in your wisdom have established humankind . . .Give me Wisdom, the consort at your throne . . . Now with you is Wisdom, who knows your works and was present when you made the world; Who understands what is pleasing in your eyes and what is conformable with your commands. Send her forth from your holy heavens and from your glorious throne dispatch her that she may be with me and work with me, that I may know what is pleasing to you. For she knows and understands all things, and will guide me prudently in my affairs and safeguard me to her glory . . . Or who can know your counsel, unless you give Wisdom and send your holy spirit from on high?

    – Wisdom 9:2, 4, 9-11, 17

    First nine chapters of Proverbs focus on Wisdom

    Proverbs 4:13 she is your life, giver of life

    Proverbs 8:35 whoever finds me finds life

    Proverbs 8:15 decrees what is right

    Proverbs 8: 22 – 31 like Wisdom herself, before the foundation of the earth I was there. Wisdom comes from God.

    Wisdom 7:22 – 8:1 She is the fashioner of all things; 21 attributes which is the product of two perfect numbers 3 & 7. Wisdom is perfection multiplied by perfection. Intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, clear, unpolluted, distinct, invulnerable, loving good, keen, irresistible, beneficent, humane, steadfast, sure, free from anxiety, all powerful. Overseeing all, penetrating through all other intelligent spirits

     

    Wisdom 8:1 She orders all things

     

    Wisdom 7: 24 She pervades and penetrates all things

     

    Wisdom 7:27 She renews all things – renewable energy

     

    Wisdom 9:10 She shares the throne of God

     

    Wisdom 7:10 – 14 She’s the source of all things new

     

    Sirach 1:1 – 8 It is God who knows wisdom and pours her forth upon the world

     

    Sirach 24: 1 – 27 Hymn of self-praise sung by Wisdom in which she describes herself, her origins, her relationship to God and the good things she does for human beings. She came from the mouth of God, she is God’s word, breath, Spirit; as the spirit/wind that hovered over the waters of creation and as mist / steam that covered the earth at the beginning; she is universal, everywhere. Her image as a tree echoes Proverbs 8 – she strikes root among God’s people. She feeds all who long for her. Her food is sweeter than honey. Her food is herself. All who eat of her will hunger still, who drink of her will thirst for more. One will never be able to get enough of what she offers. What she offers is life. She concludes her song with a promise similar to Proverbs 8:35 – 34 – those who obey her will not be shamed. Those who serve her will not fall short. I believe she is the personification of God’s wisdom as the feminine archetype.

     

    Birthing God – womb

     

    • Gen 7:1 – Breasts illuminate a feminine image of God

     

    • Deut. 32:18 “You forget the rock who begot you, unmindful of the God who gave birth to you”

    Creator God of Israel is also imaged as the shaper, maker and mother God who formed Israel in the womb and birthed Israel with labor pains:

     

    • (Deut. 32:18; Psalm 90:2; Proverbs 8:24 – 25; Isaiah 43:1,7,15; 44:2, 24; 45:9, 11; 51:13; 54:5 From the word “womb” (rehem) comes the verb “to have compassion” (raham), and the phrase “Yahweh’s compassionate (rahum) and gracious” repeatedly appears in the Hebrew scripture to describe the merciful and saving acts of God in history. (Deut. 4:31; 2 Chronicles 30:9;  Nehemiah 9:17; Ps 78:38; 86:16; 103:8; 111:4; 112:4; 145:8; John 4:7 These verses show images of God who demonstrates “womb – like compassion” for her child Israel.

     

    • God creator is sometimes depicted as woman giving birth and sometimes a reproductive image of God as both male and female: Deut 32:18; Job 38:28 – 29; Is 42:14; Acts 17; John 16:21; Gal 4:19; Rom 8:22; John 1:12

    Nursing mother:

    • Isaiah 49:15 does a woman forget her baby at the breast, or fail to cherish the son (daughter) of her womb

    • Numbers 11:12 was it I who conceived all this people, was it I who gave them birth that you should say to me, carry them in your bosom like a nurse with a baby at the breast

    • John 7: 38 From his breast shall flow the fountains of living water

    • 1 Peter 2:2 – 3 You are newborn and like babies you should be hungry for nothing but milk – now that you have tasted the goodness of Christ

    Nurturing God – mother:

    • Gen 1 :2 nesting mother

    • Deut 32 : 11 – 12 mother eagle

    • Ps 17:8 guard me in the shadow of your wings

    • Ps 36:7 all people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings

    • Ps 57:1 in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge

    • Ps 61:4 find refuge under the shelter of your wings

    • Isaiah 31:5 like birds hovering overhead, so the Lord of hosts will protect Jerusalem

     

    • Isaiah 46:3 – 4 who have been borne by me from your birth carried from the womb… even when you turn gray, I will carry you. I have made and I will bear, I will carry and will save

    • Isaiah 66: 10 –13 comforting mother…… as a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you

    • Luke 15:8 woman tirelessly sweeping for her lost coin, for what is important to her

     

    • Luke 13: 34 (Matt 23:37), how often I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings

    Other images:

    • Ruah – Gen 2:7, Ps 104: 29; Jn 3:8 presence gives life; feminine Hebrew word meaning breath, wind, inspiration or spirit.

    • Rahamin Hebrew word for compassion – root word, rahan, means womb.

    • El Shaddai – God of the mountains or God of the breasts

    • Seamstress – Gen 3:21

    • Washerwoman Isaiah 4:4, Psalm 51:7

    • Midwife Psalm 22:9 – 11, Psalm 71:6; Isaiah 66:9

    • Woman baking bread Matt 13:33

    • Seeks justice Proverbs 8:18

     

     

     

    The holy spirit is described by John as the helper:

    26 But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you (John 14).

    But Adam's wife was described in the same way:

    18 And Jehovah God went on to say: It is not good for the man to continue by himself. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him (Genesis 2).

    This is not a coincidence. Just as Eve was a complement and helper to Adam so the holy spirit is God's helper, and a complement to him. It is his wife. It is Jesus' mum. The 3, God, The Holy Spirit and Jesus, are a family. They are Father Mother and Son, for Jesus did not come from a single parent family as all churches would have you believe.

    In fact, God’s character and actions are revealed by feminine imagery in at least 26 places:

    Numbers 11:12- 11 He asked the Lord, “Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me? 12 Did I conceive all these people? Did I give them birth? Why do you tell me to carry them in my arms, as a nurse carries an infant, to the land you promised on oath to their ancestors?

    Deuteronomy 32:18 - 18 You deserted the Rock, who fathered you;  you forgot the God who gave you birth.

Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.9 Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?” says the Lord.“Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?” says your God. 10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her. 11 For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply  and delight in her overflowing abundance.” 12 For this is what the Lord says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. 13 As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”

    John 3:3–8 - 3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[a]”4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You[c] must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”[d]

     

    1 Peter 2:2–3 - 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

     

     

     

    The nature of the spiritual birth by the Holy Spirit points directly to a feminine Holy Spirit

     

    Quoting from John 3:

     

    There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; the same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered, and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound of it, but canst not tell from where it cometh, and where it goeth; so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered, and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered, and said unto him, Art thou a teacher of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that which we do know, and testify to that which we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

     

    Acts Chapter 2 makes a singular association between this rebirth described in John 3 and the Holy Spirit, identifying the Holy Spirit as the Birther. Because gender weakness is frowned upon in the passages cited above as well as the proscription against homosexuality in both Testaments, the Holy Spirit must be identified as functionally feminine.

     

    A Feminine Church suggests a feminine Holy Spirit

     

    The femininity of the spiritual Church was established in the article entitled The Church, the Bride, the Body and the New Jerusalem. The spiritual Church, being a feminine entity and the Bride of Christ, requires Jesus Christ to be gendered. This was the great mystery of which Paul spoke in Ephesians 5:31 and 32:

     

    For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and His Church.

     

    This relationship between Christ and His Church elicits a profound question, one that can be answered rationally only one way: why, if Jesus partakes of both gender and marriage, would the Father and the Holy Spirit not?

    Given the male gender of the Father, the obvious answer is that the Holy Spirit is the feminine Spouse of the Father.

    The feminine Shekinah Glory points to a feminine Holy Spirit

    Perhaps the most significant suggestion of femininity in the Bible may be found in the property of indwelling, a characteristic of the Holy Spirit that strongly connects the New Testament with the Old.

    That the Old Testament Shekinah is the New Testament’s Holy Spirit is manifestly evident in the precursor role to the indwelling Holy Spirit of the Shekinah Glory who indwelt both the Tabernacle in the wilderness and Solomon’s Temple at their dedications. Since it has been claimed that the word Shekinah does not exist in the Hebrew Scriptures in its noun form (the situation there being similar to the absence in the Bible of a noun form of the word baptize), the following commentary will be made regarding its origin before proceeding with examples of the Shekinah presence.

    In the Hebrew Targum, the Aramaic translation of the Hebrew Old Testament, the word Shekinah is used as a noun. It means “intimate dwelling” or “the presence of the Glory (light)of the Lord”.   Justification for the use of this word is the use in the Hebrew Scriptures of its root word “shachan”, referring particularly to the pillars of cloud and fire that accompanied the Israelites in their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land through the wilderness. The prophet Isaiah referred to it quite graphically in Isaiah 4:5 and 6, linking this pillar of cloud and fire to a covering presence. It is generally understood that this same pillar is referenced in Isaiah 51:9 and 10, where the prophet goes out of his way to describe by feminine pronouns the same pillar of cloud and fire that accompanied the Israelites on their journey from Egypt. The Targum interpretation leaves no doubt that the Shekinah Glory is a feminine presence, and represents an equivalence with a feminine Holy Spirit. Isaiah 4:5 and 6, and 51:9 and 10 read as follows:

    “And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion , and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for upon all the glory shall be a defense. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.”

              “Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not she who hast cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? Art thou not she who has dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; who hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?”

     

     

     

    Exodus 40 and 1 Kings 8 provide prominent examples of the Shekinah as a precursor to the indwelling Holy Spirit of the New Testament. Exodus 40:33-38 describes the indwelling of the Tabernacle in the wilderness:

    “And [Moses] reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.

              “Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys; but if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.”

    The description “cloud of the Lord” , “fire by night” and “taken up” leaves no doubt that this “cloud” is equivalent to the Shekinah of the Red Sea adventure and of Isaiah 4:5. The corresponding incident with respect to Solomon’s Temple, taken from 1 Kings 8:6-13, is given below:

    And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord unto its place, into the inner sanctuary of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubim. For the cherubim spread forth their two wings of the place of the ark, and the cherubim covered the ark and its staves above. And they drew out the staves, that the ends of the staves were seen out in the holy place before the inner sanctuary, but they were not seen outside; and there they are unto this day. There was nothing in the ark except the two tables of stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when the lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt. And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the lord, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord. Then spoke Solomon, The Lord said he would dwell in the thick darkness. I have surely built thee an house to dwell in, a settled place for thee to abide in forever.”

    In this passage the meaning of “cloud” is closely linked with “dwelling place” and “glory of the Lord”, which again point to the phrase Shekinah Glory.

    The connection between these precursor events and the Holy Spirit who indwells Christian believers is given in 1 Corinthians 3:16 and Ephesians 2:19-22, wherein Paul asserts that the Church herself, through her constituents, is a temple indwelt by the Holy Spirit:

    Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

     

     

     

               Now, therefore, ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone, in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord; in whom ye also are built together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

    The facts embedded in these passages are no surprise to Christians, who generally accept without question that believers are indwelt with the Holy Spirit and comprise, as the Church, a holy temple. What some of us may not be aware of is that this temple and its indwelling by the Holy Spirit was represented numerous times as the Glory of God in the Old Testament. Turning to the Internet, the Wikipedia entry for “Shekinah” begins as follows:

    “Hebrew [Shekinah] is the English spelling of a grammatically feminine Hebrew ancient blessing. The original word means the dwelling or settling, and denotes the dwelling or settling of the divine presence of God, especially in the temple in Jerusalem.” An accompanying figure shows the Shekinah, or the Glory of God, indwelling the temple as described in 1 Kings 8.”

    Noting the female gender of this indwelling Shekinah, we find here by comparing the indwelling presence of the Glory in Solomon’s temple with the description in Ephesians 2 of the Holy Spirit indwelling the human temple that Scripture itself, by furnishing this direct comparison, supports an interpretation of the Holy Spirit as a female Entity in the face of conventional Christian thought, as driven by the use in Scripture of the male pronoun in reference to the Holy Spirit.

    This feminine gender attribute in Exodus 40 and 1 Kings 8 may have been simply lost in the translation from Hebrew (Aramaic) to English, which could have been a result of the lack of gender precision in the English language. (Actually, the first transference from feminine to masculine occurred in the Latin, for which the Holy Spirit was definitely presented as male.) But there is an associated gender misrepresentation in Isaiah 51:9, 10 that appears to be more deliberate. What the translators did in that passage was to substitute the grammatically incorrect ‘it’ for the gender-correct ‘she’ in reference to Shekinah. In their desire to maintain a fully masculine Godhead, they neutered the female. In the process, they inadvertently managed also to castrate their masculine God. As just one example of this removal of gender, Isaiah 51:9 and 10 refers to a neuter Arm of the Lord rather than the original feminine gender.

    Proverbs points to the femininity of the Holy Spirit

    The Book of Proverbs beautifully and harmoniously supports a female functional designation for the Holy Spirit., as the subject of this book is uniformly feminine, and whose functionality closely parallels that of the Holy Spirit. Of particular interest in this regard are Proverbs 3 and 8, from which the following excerpts are taken:

     

     

     

    “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. . .She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. . .The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. . .Doth not wisdom cry? And understanding put forth her voice? . . .The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men. Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.”

     

    Several items come to mind from the above review of these passages in Proverbs. The first is that the Persona is female throughout; an attempt to assign some of these passages to Jesus Christ, as many do, would constitute an unnatural force-fit, most obviously in the issue of gender, but also with respect to function and role. The second is directly related to function, wherein the passages suggest a connection between Wisdom and the Holy Spirit as furnishing the most likely Person to which a female function may be assigned; the third is that the Holy Spirit was active in creation itself, as summarized in Genesis 1:1-3:

    “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

    Jesus Himself, in Luke 7:35, associates Wisdom with motherhood, an eminently personal attribute.

    “But wisdom is justified of all her children.”

     While that verse possibly could be interpreted as being merely a figure of speech, Jesus in Luke 11:49 and 50 more emphatically personifies Wisdom:

    Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute, that the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation.”

     

    In further support of my equation of Wisdom with the Holy Spirit, I cite Isaiah 11:1 and 2:

    “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots; And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord,. . .”

    Another item that presents itself in a reading of Proverbs with an eye to the Personhood of Wisdom is the implied intimacy between mankind and Wisdom in the warning given in Proverbs 8:36: he that sins against Wisdom wrongs his own soul. Could this imply that our own purpose and function in the spiritual realm might actually parallel that of the Holy Spirit? There may well be a correlation between this caution and the one expressed by Jesus in Matthew 12:31 and 32:

    “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”

    These are strong words, and they make a strong connection between Wisdom and the Holy Spirit.

    “And in your wisdom have established humankind . . .Give me Wisdom, the consort at your throne . . . Now with you is Wisdom, who knows your works and was present when you made the world; Who understands what is pleasing in your eyes and what is conformable with your commands. Send her forth from your holy heavens and from your glorious throne dispatch her that she may be with me and work with me, that I may know what is pleasing to you. For she knows and understands all things, and will guide me prudently in my affairs and safeguard me to her glory . . . Or who can know your counsel, unless you give Wisdom and send your holy spirit from on high?

    – Wisdom 9:2, 4, 9-11, 17

    First nine chapters of Proverbs focus on Wisdom

    Proverbs 4:13 she is your life, giver of life

    Proverbs 8:35 whoever finds me finds life

    Proverbs 8:15 decrees what is right

    Proverbs 8: 22 – 31 like Wisdom herself, before the foundation of the earth I was there. Wisdom comes from God.

    Wisdom 7:22 – 8:1 She is the fashioner of all things; 21 attributes which is the product of two perfect numbers 3 & 7. Wisdom is perfection multiplied by perfection. Intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, clear, unpolluted, distinct, invulnerable, loving good, keen, irresistible, beneficent, humane, steadfast, sure, free from anxiety, all powerful. Overseeing all, penetrating through all other intelligent spirits

     

    Wisdom 8:1 She orders all things

     

    Wisdom 7: 24 She pervades and penetrates all things

     

    Wisdom 7:27 She renews all things – renewable energy

     

    Wisdom 9:10 She shares the throne of God

     

    Wisdom 7:10 – 14 She’s the source of all things new

     

    Sirach 1:1 – 8 It is God who knows wisdom and pours her forth upon the world

     

    Sirach 24: 1 – 27 Hymn of self-praise sung by Wisdom in which she describes herself, her origins, her relationship to God and the good things she does for human beings. She came from the mouth of God, she is God’s word, breath, Spirit; as the spirit/wind that hovered over the waters of creation and as mist / steam that covered the earth at the beginning; she is universal, everywhere. Her image as a tree echoes Proverbs 8 – she strikes root among God’s people. She feeds all who long for her. Her food is sweeter than honey. Her food is herself. All who eat of her will hunger still, who drink of her will thirst for more. One will never be able to get enough of what she offers. What she offers is life. She concludes her song with a promise similar to Proverbs 8:35 – 34 – those who obey her will not be shamed. Those who serve her will not fall short. I believe she is the personification of God’s wisdom as the feminine archetype.

    Creator God of Israel is also imaged as the shaper, maker and mother God who formed Israel in the womb and birthed Israel with labor pains:

     

    • (Deut. 32:18; Psalm 90:2; Proverbs 8:24 – 25; Isaiah 43:1,7,15; 44:2, 24; 45:9, 11; 51:13; 54:5 From the word “womb” (rehem) comes the verb “to have compassion” (raham), and the phrase “Yahweh’s compassionate (rahum) and gracious” repeatedly appears in the Hebrew scripture to describe the merciful and saving acts of God in history. (Deut. 4:31; 2 Chronicles 30:9;  Nehemiah 9:17; Ps 78:38; 86:16; 103:8; 111:4; 112:4; 145:8; John 4:7 These verses show images of God who demonstrates “womb – like compassion” for her child Israel.

     

    • God creator is sometimes depicted as woman giving birth and sometimes a reproductive image of God as both male and female: Deut 32:18; Job 38:28 – 29; Is 42:14; Acts 17; John 16:21; Gal 4:19; Rom 8:22; John 1:12

    Nursing mother:

    • Ps 36:7 all people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings

    • Ps 57:1 in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge

    • Ps 61:4 find refuge under the shelter of your wings

    • Isaiah 31:5 like birds hovering overhead, so the Lord of hosts will protect Jerusalem

     

    • Isaiah 46:3 – 4 who have been borne by me from your birth carried from the womb… even when you turn gray, I will carry you. I have made and I will bear, I will carry and will save

    • Luke 15:8 woman tirelessly sweeping for her lost coin, for what is important to her

     

    • Luke 13: 34 (Matt 23:37), how often I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings

    Other images:

    • Ruah – Gen 2:7, Ps 104: 29; Jn 3:8 presence gives life; feminine Hebrew word meaning breath, wind, inspiration or spirit.

    • Rahamin Hebrew word for compassion – root word, rahan, means womb.

    • El Shaddai – God of the mountains or God of the breasts

    • Seamstress – Gen 3:21

    • Washerwoman Isaiah 4:4, Psalm 51:7

    • Midwife Psalm 22:9 – 11, Psalm 71:6; Isaiah 66:9

    • Woman baking bread Matt 13:33

    • Seeks justice Proverbs 8:18

     

     

     

    The holy spirit is described by John as the helper:

    26 But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you (John 14).

    But Adam's wife was described in the same way:

    18 And Jehovah God went on to say: It is not good for the man to continue by himself. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him (Genesis 2).

    This is not a coincidence. Just as Eve was a complement and helper to Adam so the holy spirit is God's helper, and a complement to him. It is his wife. It is Jesus' mum. The 3, God, The Holy Spirit and Jesus, are a family. They are Father Mother and Son, for Jesus did not come from a single parent family as all churches would have you believe.

  • THE DAUGHTER OF ZION

    THE DAUGHTER OF ZION A COMELY AND DELICATE WOMAN

     

    Genesis says it is not good for a man to be alone so he made eve from a rib of Adam. Jesus didn't want to be alone and speaks of a wife and being the bridegroom. There is the life of two people described in detail in the bible, Jesus and the daughter of Zion, the daughter of Zion is believed to be the bride/wife of Jesus.

     

    Is it possible humanity has overlooked the possibility of God making a man and a woman, according to genesis, who will be joined in one flesh by the marriage of the lamb at the second coming, that the daughter of Zion is a real person. It fits with scripture but not the commonly held belief systems.

    The bible doesn't say she doesn't exist, in fact it details a flawed woman, a sinner that is punished, forgiven and marries Jesus.

    God loved her so much he would have been wise to hide her in scripture, to protect her. The bible says David took the stronghold of Zion and the kingdom comes from his line, both Jesus and the daughter of Zion, and the New Testament says behold Zion, your king is coming for you and directions are given as to where she is.

    God describes her as a beautiful and delicate woman, in a similar vain that he described Jesus as nothing to look at, most importantly there is no one to comfort her, the church has Jesus, the church knows that they are forgiven and loved and Jesus died for the church but Zion thinks God has forgotten her. No where in the bible does it say that Zion isn't an individual, in fact it says that she is delicate and beautiful woman, lives in the south, does almost everything wrong by God, is severely punished so much so more worse than Soddom and Gommorah, she thinks God has forgotten her and there is no one to comfort her coz God caused Jacob (her own) to turn against her, that God has espoused her to one husband and recalls her childhood, as in genesis, it is not good for a man to be alone and he took a rib from Adam and made eve, Adam saying finally bone of my bones, maybe explaining why she is cast down from heaven to earth, and he is jealous for her, and pours out his wrath scarring her forehead and discovering her secret parts, writing his name in the hearts of people is different to scarring their heads.
    Is it possible that God also created the universe for a companion, a wife, and writes about her and somehow it became shameful to think for ourselves and wonder if she actually exists like Jesus did, coz everyone defends themselves if they mention the daughter of Zion, why? Doesn't the bible teach to rightly divide the word.

     

    God says it is a physical woman, 'I liken the daughter of Zion to a beautiful and delicate woman'. We assume it's a city but God says its a woman, not even women, woman and Jesus says 'wow to those who give suck in those days' and the bride of Christ gives birth in revelation. 

    Giving birth in revelation says to me...the kingdom of God - .the new heaven and the new earth,

     

    Daughter is used as in terms of relationship and figuratively...means the apple of God's eye. 

     

    Jeremiah 6:2 
    I have (likened) cut off/silenced the daughter of (Zion) the parched place to a (comely) home and (delicate) effeminate woman. 

    And the daughter of Zion is (left) preserved/saved as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a (besieged) preserved/kept secret (city) town/excitement. 

    Jeremiah 4:31 
    For I have heard a (voice) sound as of a woman in (travail) sickness/weakness, and the (anguish) trouble/of a rival wife as of her that bringeth forth her first (child) first born, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that (bewaileth) gasping for breath herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers. 

    Micah 4:10
    Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughterof Zion, like a woman in travail/child birth: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. 

    Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be (defiled) godless, and let our eye look upon Zion. 
    But they know not the (thoughts) device/planning/cunning of the LORD, neither (understand) separate mentally/discern they his counsel/purpose: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.

    (Arise) become powerful/valid/proven and (thresh) trample on/trample down, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will (consecrate) exterminate/destroy their gain unto the LORD, and their (substance) strength/might/efficiency unto the Lord of the whole earth/land/ground. 

    she is woman, an individual. 

    God says it is a woman, beautiful, delicate, not a city and Jeremiah 6:2 affirms this. She's separated from the parched place into a home for a delicate woman and referred to as a secret with a rival wife.

    Genesis says it is not good for a man to be alone so he made eve from a rib of Adam. Jesus didn't want to be alone and speaks of a wife and being the bridegroom. There is the life of two people described in detail in the bible, Jesus and the daughter of Zion, the daughter of Zion is believed to be the bride/wife of Jesus. Is it possible humanity has overlooked the possibility of God making a man and a woman, according to genesis, who will be joined in one flesh by the marriage of the lamb at the second coming, that the daughter of Zion is a real person.

    She does exist and the world already hates her, in fact the world already knows she exists but through false doctrine the world believes Yeshua’s wife is themselves (“the church”) or a body of believers.

    The entire Holy Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation were written concerning Yeshua’s wife, a particular, real and actual woman made from His side, “My dove my undefiled is but one; she is the only one of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and blessed her; yea the queens and the concubines and they praised her.”Song of Solomon 6:9

    She is protected and hidden as God described in Scripture: a Mystery and a great wonder in heaven. When Yeshua walked the earth to live, suffer, and die, He was also in heaven as He walked the earth, “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of Man which is in heaven.” John 3:13 .

    The daughter of Zion (Jerusalem or Israel was also from heaven.

    Lamentations chapter 2

    [a]How the Lord has covered Daughter Zion

        with the cloud of his anger[b]!

    He has hurled down the splendour(Light) of Israel

        from heaven to earth;

    he has not remembered his footstool

        in the day of his anger.

     

    He testified that while he was physically on earth, He was also in heaven. Yeshua’s Zion, His wife, is a real woman, who like her Husband, is both on earth and in heaven--a great mystery--until what takes place inside and outside of her as God described in Isaiah 60 and Revelation 21 should take place. When “the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets.” Revelation 10:7.

    Micah 4
    8As for you, watchtower of the flock, stronghold  of Daughter Zion, the former dominion will be restored to you; kingship will come to Daughter Jerusalem.”
    13“Rise and thresh, Daughter Zion, for I will give you horns of iron; I will give you hooves of bronze, and you will break to pieces many nations. ”You will devote their ill-gotten gains to the Lord, their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.

    You shall take up the sickle and reap in the fields, but it SHALL NOT be work, for the sickle I place in your hand is of My Spirit and shall reap of the fields as My Power and Spirit is in it, and it is not a sickle made by man, but it is a sickle made of My Spirit and shall reap where the sickle of men have not cut down. The sickles of men have not served to reap the harvest and cut the stocks of grain but rather they have “torn up” as they have been wielded by those who would carry them. They have done damage to My fields with these sickles they have fashioned by their own hands. I have made a strong bond between Myself and you and now with those I have purposed to work with you also.

    The enemy shall not come against what I do in this day and he shall not destroy or damage in all My Holy Mountain.
    I have trained you in the path that you should go the pathway that leads to Zion. My love, my light, my angel Gabrielle, my dear daughter, it is time for the fulfilment of prophecy to materialize. You are the light to the Gentiles – all Nations. Nations will come to your light to the brightness of your glory(light). The Glory of the LORD(SHEKINAH) will be risen upon you. Your children will come to you and they will love you.

    Isaiah 60
    2″For behold, darkness will cover the earth   and deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory(Light) will appear upon you. 3″Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. 4″Lift up your eyes round about and see; They all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms.…

    You are my daughter Zion, the beautiful city of light –the New Jerusalem on earth and your Heavenly Mother from above will be by your side, you are your Mother’s firstborn twin AND THE APPLE OF HER EYE. You are the lily of the valley and my bright morning star among the angels. All angels are called morning stars.

    My child it is time for the coming of our Kingdom of Zion , the Kingdom of Heaven, Light and Love when you will be our representative from heaven here on earth and you will rule and reign over our children. You will be blessed of our children and they shall call you Mother Jerusalem (Zion) – you are free and you are from above (heaven) like your Heavenly Mother. You are the Daughter of Jerusalem, the Daughter of Zion who inherits the Kingdom of God and of heaven on earth. We will be ruling along side you in the hearts and minds of our children. You will be as Queen on earth and your Heavenly Mother will reign in spiritual heaven. The Queen of the South will rise up at the judgement seat of Christ that speaks of you our beloved Zion. The law  our commandments of love will go forth from the daughter of Zion and the city of Zion. Peace, Love and the presence of the Shekinah Glory will return to earth as it was in the beginning when God said “let there be Light”. Light came into darkness and not only exposed darkness but expelled it and this will happen once again.

    Daughter of Zion, all of Heaven is proud of you. The angels are there with you throughout your journey to the Kingdom of Zion. Daughter of Troops your army is ready for the final battle of light and darkness. The removal of darkness will be soon. Get ready my Daughter Zion. This is the moment you have been training for – it is time. Your family from heaven loves you and will be with you only you can see us invisible through the light. We have been on this journey for a long time my Zion but all will be fulfilled at the coming of your bridegroom. A match made from heaven my angel Gabrielle and Michael the Archangel. Tell them the truth Zion that husbands and wives and children are in heaven. Let them understand that earth is a copy or shadow of heaven.

    You know all the deception Satan and his wife have done to our children. Zion only the truth shall set our children free. Your light that shines will draw mankind to their Heavenly Father and Mother and Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth. My Zion, it is about time the bride enters Her bridal chamber. Be ready for the coming of your bridegroom my Son your brother Michael Immanuel (Jesus Christ).

    Song of Solomon 4:8-10
    8″Come with me from Lebanon, my bride, May you come with me from Lebanon. Journey down from the summit of Amana, From the summit of Senir and Hermon, From the dens of lions, From the mountains of leopards. 9″You have made my heart beat faster, my sister, my bride; You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes, With a single strand of your necklace. 10″How beautiful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much better is your love than wine, And the fragrance of your oils Than all kinds of spices!…

    Song of Solomon 4:12
    You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.

    .”This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success”…. Joshua 1:8 NASB

    Isaiah 40:3-5 New King James Version (NKJV)
    3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the LORD; Make straight in the desert A highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth;
    5 The glory of the LORD(Shekinah-Our Heavenly Mother) shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

    Go Forth Daughter of Armies raise the Banner of Peace, Love and Light! Shine heaven’s light for all to see. Your Shekinah Glory – Father, Mother,Son.
    Surely, says the Lord, I am releasing greater power and Prophetic unction on your words, whether they are written or spoken. The power of Hope and the power of Change is in your words, and the power of Faith which is activated, energized, motivated and released by the power of Our Love.

    So begin to Prophesy like never before. Prophesy to the individuals, the Families, the Churches, the Cities, the Regions, and the Nations.

    Prophesy Change, Prophesy Repentance, Prophesy My Judgments. For when My Judgments are on the Earth, then will the inhabitants learn righteousness.

    Prophesy them from darkness into light; out of captivity, into the glorious liberty of the children of God, for all of creation is waiting, travailing for the manifestation of the Sons.

    The Glory(light) of Zion
    1“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord(SHEKINAH) rises upon you.2See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. 3Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn(light).

    Song of Solomon 6:10
    Who is this that appears like the dawn(Light), fair as the moon(Light), bright as the sun(Light), majestic as the stars(Light) in procession?

    Revelation 12
    1A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun(Light), with the moon(Light) under her feet and a crown of twelve stars(Light) on her head.

    1 Corinthians 15:41
    The sun has one kind of splendour(Light), the moon(Light) another and the stars(light) another; and star differs from star in splendour(Lght).

    Rev 21:1-3
    Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.

    The future dwelling of God will be the body or temple of the Daughter of Zion. The Shekinah will shine from her body which means the presence of Father and Mother are Light. God is Light and the presence of the Son of God is Light – “ the light of the world”. The Daughter of Zion is the “light to the Gentiles meaning all nations.

    John was granted a vision of this fully matured Bride/Wife of the Lamb in the form of the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:2). The Bride is not literally a city, she is the Daughter of Zion, but is represented here symbolically in the manner of a great city, like none that has ever been seen.

    In Revelation 21:15-23 the messenger first discloses the measurements of the city, twelve thousand furlongs, then the height of its walls, one hundred and forty four cubits (twelve times twelve). The number twelve in scripture symbolises divine government and apostolic fullness. The Lamb’s Wife carries the fullness of the stature of Christ (Eph. 4:13).
    The city has walls made of jasper, or clear crystal, and is built from gold so pure it is as transparent as glass. The jasper symbolises priesthood while the gold symbolises glory and dominion, but gold so refined is also costly (Rev. 3:18).

    The foundations are revealed next, adorned with twelve precious stones. Christ Himself is the Bride’s foundation, (1 Cor. 3:11) while the stones represent the Bride’s royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:5). There are twelve gates each made from a single pearl. Pearls in scripture represent suffering (Philippians 3:10).

    The most radiant aspect of this city, however, is its light which emanates directly from the Lamb. This wife of the Lamb is so totally reflective of her Bridegroom that she has become completely transparent, without blemish or spot, radiating only His righteousness and His character.
    But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple (Rev. 21:22)

    There is no temple in this city, meaning there is no place(building) set aside for God. This is because to see the Bride is to see the Bridegroom, so perfect is their oneness (John 17:21-23). The Bride herself has become the dwelling place of God (Rev. 21:3).Heaven comes to earth. Heaven is Light, Love, Peace, Joy and the presence of Our Heavenly Parents.
    Zion is the name given to the bride of Christ it is also the place where His bride will dwell.

    ** The 45th Psalm provides us with a beautiful picture of Christ and His bride.
    Daughters of kings are among your honored women;
    at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.
    10 Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention:
    Forget your people and your father’s house.
    11 Let the king be enthralled by your beauty;
    honor him, for he is your lord.
    12 The city of Tyre will come with a gift,[d]
    people of wealth will seek your favor.
    13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber;
    her gown is interwoven with gold.
    14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king;
    her virgin companions follow her—
    those brought to be with her.
    15 Led in with joy and gladness,
    they enter the palace of the king.
    16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers;
    you will make them princes throughout the land.
    17 I will perpetuate your memory through all generations;
    therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.

    The psalmist tells us that the Bridegroom could have chosen a bride from many honorable daughters in the kingdom. “Kings’ daughters were among thy honourable women…” (Psalm 45:9). But He chose only one: “…upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir” (same verse).
    Now, Ophir gold was the purest, most refined gold made in those days. And this bride is adorned in it. What a sight she is, as she is “…brought unto the king…” (verse 14). She absolutely glows, because her heart is pure.
    Her golden gown glistens with incredible needlework. This isn’t some broad cloth picked out of endless yards; it has been intricately interwoven with threads of the purest gold.

    The queen in gold marches toward the King with great fanfare. And what a glorious sound – tambourines, trumpets, stringed instruments! Behind her, as far as the eye can see, is her retinue – an army of virgins, all dressed in white, singing, dancing, praising with great joy. The bride is leading the whole procession – and they’re coming to meet the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

    Finally, the queen takes her place at the King’s right hand. And everyone is rejoicing – because this is the royal wedding of eternity! “…the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace” (verses 14-15).

    “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband…. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
    “And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory(Light) of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal” (Revelation 21:2, 9-11).

    Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9)

    Micah 4
    The Mountain of the LORD
    1 In the last days
    the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established
    as chief among the mountains;
    it will be raised above the hills,
    and peoples will stream to it.
    2 Many nations will come and say,
    “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
    to the house of the God of Jacob.
    He will teach us his ways,
    so that we may walk in his paths.”
    The law will go out from Zion,
    the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
    3 He will judge between many peoples
    and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide.
    They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.
    Nation will not take up sword against nation,
    nor will they train for war anymore.
    4 Every man will sit under his own vine
    and under his own fig tree,
    and no one will make them afraid,
    for the LORD Almighty has spoken.
    5 All the nations may walk
    in the name of their gods;
    we will walk in the name of the LORD
    our God for ever and ever.
    The LORD’s Plan
    6 “In that day,” declares the LORD,
    “I will gather the lame;
    I will assemble the exiles
    and those I have brought to grief.
    7 I will make the lame a remnant,
    those driven away a strong nation.
    The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion
    from that day and forever.
    8 As for you, O watchtower of the flock,
    O stronghold [a] of the Daughter of Zion,
    the former dominion will be restored to you;
    kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem.”
    9 Why do you now cry aloud—
    have you no king?
    Has your counselor perished,
    that pain seizes you like that of a woman in labor?
    10 Writhe in agony, O Daughter of Zion,
    like a woman in labor,
    for now you must leave the city
    to camp in the open field.
    You will go to Babylon;
    there you will be rescued.
    There the LORD will redeem you
    out of the hand of your enemies.
    11 But now many nations
    are gathered against you.
    They say, “Let her be defiled,
    let our eyes gloat over Zion!”
    12 But they do not know
    the thoughts of the LORD;
    they do not understand his plan,
    he who gathers them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
    13 “Rise and thresh, O Daughter of Zion,
    for I will give you horns of iron;
    I will give you hoofs of bronze
    and you will break to pieces many nations.”
    You will devote their ill-gotten gains to the LORD,
    their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.

    (THIS ENTIRE CHAPTER IS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY. TODAY.
    I WILL GIVE YOU HORNS OF IRON – POWER – AUTHORITY.
    THE FINAL CLUE IS GIVEN IN REVELATION 22 V 16 16″I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. (THE ANGEL SPEAKING) “I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”

    Malachi 3:1 (NIV) “See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty.(THE DAUGHTER OF ZION)

    Isaiah 11

    2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on that Branch.

    THE BOOK OF LAMENTATIONS IS ABOUT THE DAUGHTER OF ZION
    Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (KJV)

    Revelations 12:17 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. (KJV) GOD OFTEN REFERS TO THE BEGINNING . WHATEVER HAPPENED IN THE BIBLE IN THE BEGINNING HAPPENS AT THE END OF AGE.

    MATTHEW 3
    11″I baptize you with[b] water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire(Shekinah – Heavenly Mother).

    JOHN THE BAPTIST SAID “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” (Matt. 3:11-13)

    His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.
    I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.

    2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
    for your love is more delightful than wine.
    3 Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
    your name is like perfume poured out.
    No wonder the maidens love you!
    4 Take me away with you—let us hurry!
    Let the king bring me into his chambers.

    Friends
    We rejoice and delight in you [b] ;
    we will praise your love more than wine.

    O daughters of Jerusalem,
    dark like the tents of Kedar,
    like the tent curtains of Solomon. [c]
    6 Do not stare at me because I am dark,
    because I am darkened by the sun.
    My mother’s sons were angry with me
    and made me take care of the vineyards;
    my own vineyard I have neglected.
    7 Tell me, you whom I love, where you graze your flock
    and where you rest your sheep at midday.
    Why should I be like a veiled woman (A LITERAL WOMAN – THE DAUGHTER OF ZION)
    beside the flocks of your friends?

    Song of Solomon 3
    1 All night long on my bed
    I looked for the one my heart loves;
    I looked for him but did not find him.
    2 I will get up now and go about the city,
    through its streets and squares;
    I will search for the one my heart loves.
    So I looked for him but did not find him.
    3 The watchmen found me
    as they made their rounds in the city.
    “Have you seen the one my heart loves?”
    4 Scarcely had I passed them
    when I found the one my heart loves.
    I held him and would not let him go
    till I had brought him to my mother’s house,
    to the room of the one who conceived me.
    5 Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you
    by the gazelles and by the does of the field:
    Do not arouse or awaken love
    until it so desires.

    1. The Daughter-of-Zion/Woman-in-Travail appears in Micah. Jeremiah, Isaiah and Revelation. All occurrences tell a similar story, but each providing a few different details.

      The ancient story of iniquity, followed by punishment and forgiveness is repeated multiple times. Among the interesting details here is that the kingdom comes first to the tower of the flock. the stronghold of the daughters of Zion. It appears that mount Zion, as used throughout, is synonymous with the tower of the flock, the "stronghold".

      Micah 5:6 In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted.
      7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.
      And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
      9 Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counseller perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.
      10 Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.
      11 Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.
      12 But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
      13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth. 

      Jeremiah 4:26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.
      27 For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.
      28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.
      29 The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.
      30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.
      31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zionthat bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers. 

      Jeremiah 6:13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
      14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
      15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
      16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
      17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
      18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
      19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to law, but rejected it.
      20 To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
      21 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumbling blocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.
      22 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.
      23 They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.
      24 We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
      25 Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side.
      26 O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.
      27 I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.
      28 They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters.
      29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.
      30 Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them.

      Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
      13 The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.
      14 The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.
      15 What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord GOD of hosts.
      16 Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
      17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.
      18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, 19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, 20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, 21 The rings, and nose jewels, 22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, 23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.
      24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
      25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.
      26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.

      Isaiah 4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
      2 In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. 3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: 4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. 5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence. 6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

    My son, pay attention to my wisdom, listen well to my words of insight,

    Proverbs 1:2

    for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight;

    1 Corinthians 2:13

    This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.

    1 Corinthians 12:8

    To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,

    Ecclesiastes 9:18

    Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good.

    Ecclesiastes 2:26

    To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

  • ANGELS IN THE BIBLE

    The Functions of  ANGELS

     

    The word “angel” actually comes from the Greek word angelos, which means “messenger.” The matching Hebrew word mal'ak has the same meaning.

     

    “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”

    The time of their creation occurred with the creation of the heavens in Genesis 1:1.

    God created the angels immediately after God created the heavens and before earth was created.

     

    To correctly understand what angels are and their characteristics, one should read the bible.  Close to 300 Scriptures contain the word angel. We are surrounded by an innumerable amount of these heavenly messengers. 

     

     

    In Genesis 18, Abraham welcomed three angelic guests who appeared at first to be nothing more than some travellers.

    In the following chapter, two angels went to Sodom they were a pair of human visitors.

     

    Jeremiah 33:22 says, “…the host of heaven cannot be numbered.”

     

    Psalm 8:5 says, “You made him [man] a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory(Physical LIGHT) and honor.”  The Hebrew word here for “heavenly beings” actually means “The Godhead”- The first family of angels of GOD. 

     

    Angels have been appointed

    “…to minister for those who will inherit salvation.”  (Hebrews 1:14)

     

    Matthew 18:10 says, "Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven."

     

     

     

    In the dream involving Jacob’s Ladder, Genesis 28:12 says, “…the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.”  These messengers of God commute between heaven and earth appearing in a variety of forms such as a burning bush (Exodus 3:2).  Other angels may appear with wings or like humans.

     

     Hebrews 13:2 advises us, "Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels."

     

    These heavenly beings perform a variety of functions…

     

    Angels bring direction.

     

     In Acts 8:26, an angel told Philip, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza."  This led him to minister salvation to a traveling Ethiopian.

     

     

    Angels bring revelation. 

     

    In the sixth chapter of Zechariah, an angel showed the prophet a vision of four chariots, which represented “four spirits of heaven.”

     

     

    Angels bring answers to prayer. 

     

    In Daniel 10:11-13, the angel Michael gave a prophetic vision to Daniel after he had fasted and prayed for twenty-one days.

     

     

    Angels encourage believers. 

     

    An angel told Gideon in Judges 6:12, "The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!" 

     

    Angels ministered to Jesus prior to His arrest and crucifixion;

     

      ”Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.” (Luke 22:43)

     

    Angels bring deliverance. 

     

    Psalm 34:7 says, “The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.”  In Acts 5:19 and Acts 12:7; angels freed the apostles from prison.

     

    Angels Guides us

    - Angels gave instructions to Joseph about the birth of Jesus (Matthew 1-2), to the women at the tomb, to Philip (Acts 8:26), and to Cornelius (Acts 10:1-8).

     

     

     

    Angels warn God’s people of pending judgment. 

     

    Just before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, angels urged Lot, his wife and their two daughters to leave “…lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city." (Genesis 19:15)  The angels were responding to the intercessory prayers of Abraham from the previous chapter.

     

     

    Angels carry out divine judgment. 

     

    “Then David spoke to the LORD when he saw the angel who was striking the people, and said, ‘Surely I have sinned, and I have done wickedly; but these sheep, what have they done?  Let Your hand, I pray, be against me and against my father's house.’" (2 Samuel 24:17)

     

     

    Angels provide supernatural protection

     

    Psalm 91:11-12 says, “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.  In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.” 

     

     

    Angels bring provision like the one that brought food to Elijah in the desert (1 Kings 19:5-8). 

     

     

    Angels subdue our enemies.

     

     May they be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them away” - Psalm 35:5 (NIV).  In Daniel 6:22, an angel shut the mouths of lions.

     

     

    The Bible does speak about classes of angelic beings like cherubim (Ezekiel 1) and seraphim (Isaiah 6). We also know the names of two notable angels: Michael (Daniel 10:13; Jude 9) and Gabriel (Daniel 9:21; Luke 1:19,26).

    The unnamed angels who appear most often in Scripture carry out a variety of tasks—all designed to serve God…

    Worshipand praise

     

     This is the main activity portrayed in heaven (Isaiah 6:1-3; Revelation 4-5).

    Angels bring Revelation

     They serve as messengers to communicate God's will to men. They helped reveal the law to Moses (Acts 7:52-53), and served as the carriers of much of the material in Daniel, and Revelation.

    Provision

    •  

     - God has used angels to provide physical needs such as food for Hagar (Genesis 21:17-20), Elijah (1 Kings 19:6), and Christ after His temptation (Matthew 4:11).

     

    Protection

     Keeping God's people out of physical danger, as in the cases of Daniel and the lions, and his three friends in the fiery furnace (Daniel 3 and 6).

    •  
    • Delivering
    •  
    •  - Getting God's people out of danger once they're in it. Angels released the apostles from prison in Acts 5, and repeated the process for Peter in Acts 12.

    Strengthening and encouraging

    Angels strengthened Jesus after His temptation (Matt 4:11), encouraged the apostles to keep preaching after releasing them from prison (Acts 5:19-20), and told Paul that everyone on his ship would survive the impending shipwreck (Acts 27:23-25).

     

    Answering prayer

     God often uses angels as His means of answering the prayers of His people (Daniel 9:20-24; 10:10-12; Acts 12:1-17).

     

    We can increase angelic activity in our lives by confessing the promises of God.  Psalm 103:20 says, "Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word." 

     

    However we can also provoke our angels by disobeying God and saying the wrong things.  Ecclesiastes 5:6 (KJV) says, “Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?”

     

    Worshipping GOD also activates angels (see Isaiah 6:1-3 and Revelation 4:8).   

     

     

    One other important function of angels is to carry men to their eternity destinies.  Matthew 13:49 says,  “So it will be at the end of the age.  The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just.”  Some people believe they can raise themselves to angelic status through saintly action.  Acts 10 tells of the account of an angel leading Cornelius to go to Peter to hear the gospel.  Angels can lead sinners to preachers and churches but not directly to salvation.  Angels cannot forgive sin (Exodus 23:21).

     

     

    Some people think they will go to heaven just because they believe in God.  The devil also believes in God but certainly he won't be spending eternity in heaven.  Satan will be cast into the lake of fire as well as people who reject the free gift of salvation. 

     

    Matthew 25:41 says, "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, "Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”  

     

    Rev 1

    3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    Rev 2

    Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

    8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

    12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

    18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

    28 And I will give him the morning star.

    29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit (Angel) saith unto the churches.

    Chapter 3

    1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

    7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

     

    14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

    Rev 5

    2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

    11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

    12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

    Chapter 7

    1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

    2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

    3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

    11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

    12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

    Rev 8

    2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

    3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

    4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

    5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

    6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

    7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

    8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

    9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

    10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;

    12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

    13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet(announcement) of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

    Chapter 9

    1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

    13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

    14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

    15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

    Chapter 10

    1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

    2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

    3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

    5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

    6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

    7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

    8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

    9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

    10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

    11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

    Chapter 11

    1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

    15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

    Chapter 12

    1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

    Rev 14

    6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

    7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

    8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

    9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

    10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

    15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

    16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

    17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

    18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

    19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

    Chapter 15

    1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

    6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

    8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
