Isaiah 24 and More
This is a heady look at Isaiah and Bible messages. One must climb over a mountain of knowledge to find the precious stones of wisdom.
Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof Isaiah 24:1.
Earth here is "eret" which means dry land or the whole dry land and can mean the planet from the point of view of dry land. But more important is what is going to happen to this eret.
Eret is actually spelled aleph, reish, ayin. The aleph has to do with God/man and reish relates to righteousness and ayin the land of Israel.
What is the land of Israel? It is not about geography but the place in the land/man where god prevails. You are that land, the adamic clay. You are made from the land,
out of dirt itself but does God prevail in you?
This is what God wants you to understand. But prophecy has many layers. Words are babble and if you want to understand you need divine guidance, revelation.
All translations fall short because words fall short.
The word empty in Isaiah 24:1 is baqaq. Baqaq is beit kuf kuf.
Beit is God's place below or his house on earth.
Kuf has to do with a "fallen spark" and is repeated twice in this word.
Kuf is made of two letters a reish and a zayin.
The riesh has to do with process or beginning. It has to do with origin or the head and is dominate in the Kuf but the zayin is under the reish. Zayin is
the woman of valor. You know the one more precious than a ruby. Man is first then woman is added to make him complete but together they are the fallen spark of God. Empty is the fallen spark of God
upon His earth below.
Can any one follow all that? Let us make this simpler?
Baqaq means to lay waste, to empty out, devastate as a process. A place may be virtually emptying out or being devastated but some still live. It is built into the
system that man without the God becomes the fallen spark, the walking dead, soulless, empty shell.
In order to be born again someone must die or at least some part of him must die. First you must empty the glass, let go so that there is no more conflict within.....
Waste is from balaq spelled beit lamed kuf.
The order of the letters plays an important part.
Lamed has to do with the aspirations of the heart. Balaq is also used to denote to waste, lay waste, devastate. So, you have God's empty house on earth longing for the fallen
spark of mankind.
Before we go further let us reverse the letters.
First, kuf lamed which would be kol meaning all, whole, the whole.
Or kuf lamedlamed or kalal meaning to complete, perfect, perfected.
Isn't Hebrew amazing?
Complete the reversal and you have kuf. lamed beit or Kaleb which is the same as Caleb meaning "dog".
Who was Caleb?
The godly son of Jephunneh and the faithful spy who reported the Promised Land favorably and urged the people to enter and was willing to enter. Yes Caleb means dog but a dog is man's best friend
....loyal and faithful. A dog can be considered faithful and trusting.
With a vav and you have Kalibbowwhich means of the house of Caleb.
Slip in a aleph and you have Kil'ab, like his father.
Remember an aleph is two yods divided or connected by a vav, God and his likeness man.
Let us get simpler yet.
Waste and devastate and turn upside down.
The word turn is from the Hebrew meaning to bend twist or distort but paniym does not mean upside down. It is translated into the word before 1137 times, face
390 times, presence 76, because 67, sight 40, countenance 30, from 27, person 21, upon 20, of 20,.... So on and so forth.
What does all this mean ?
Besides the fact that language is more than what is first assumed and translators are not consistent. And even the best translation because of the nature of language will betray the
text and words of the author.
Does this mean we cannot discover the truth by reading the Bible? Absolutely not. Do we all have to have scholarship and degrees in language to understand and be saved?
I don't think so.
At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto
Jesus did not say that scholars will reveal the truth to them. If Jesus had such trouble with the denial and falseness of scholars why should we not have the same
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.Matthew 16:17
This revelation by God , this inner knowing, this faith you stake your very life on is the Rock upon which God is building His Church.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.Matthew 16:18
Peter had that Godly revelation of faith, do you?
Let us move along more quickly:
And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the
seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. Isaiah 24:2
Sounds like a great leveler. The presents of God is the great leveler of mankind. It is a spiritual status equalizer where mankind will not be one man upon another. In the Bible men
are often represented by stones. Even one word for assembled council was the same word for a pile of stones. To tell the truth the altar made of earth by Abram was really a group of
goodly men set aside to do special works for the people. The same of the alter of stone made of stones not hewn by the hand of men. That is not regulated by statutes and rulers but formed a
government of servants that depended upon the charity of those they served to sustain themselves. They played much the same role and position in his society that the early Levites and early ministers
of the Church did.
But back to Isaiah but on another level now.
The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. Isaiah 24:3
Utterly is from the word bazaz meaning to spoil, plunder, prey upon, seize.
So, the operation of devastation and waste involves prey upon and spoil not just destruction.???
Think in ideas not just words.
The earth mourneth [and] fadeth away, the world languisheth [and] fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. Isaiah 24:4
The [and]s here are added by the translator and world is from tebel which is tav beit lamed. Tebel is from yabal which is Yod beit lamed. There is a story
there in itself.
But lets keep it simple.
Every one from high to low are languished. It is rough for both rich and poor, the faithful and the wicked.
The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Isaiah
Defile has to do with pollute or corrupt. This individually spiritual and manifestly physical.
We know who is changing laws and breaking the long lasting constitution we should keep with God which is to love one another and not covet the goods of each other and rob each other
under color of law which includes all the US and countries do with levies and taxes and corvee systems of statutory slavery. And the inhabitants participate in their system of control and
covetousness in their selfish democracy where 51 percent of the people oppress and deprive and covet that which is the other 49's.
Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. Isaiah 24:6
Now here we get a little closer to home. What is the curse? This curse is from alah which means "1) oath 2) oath of covenant".
Signed any oaths under penalty of perjury lately? It is the oaths we take that devours us.That is why Jesus told you to not take any because they cometh of evil.
Devoured? Well that reminds me of a line from Raising Arizona when he looks at his paycheck.
" The government, she do take a bite."
Dwell is to remain therein. Those that make the covenant are desolate.
Desolate here is from asham meaning "1) to offend, be guilty, trespass".
Those that make the covenant are guilty. They have violated God's law and Christ's words.
That is different from what we have seen. Doesn't the beast find you to be an offense if you do not take their oaths?
The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh. The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. Isaiah 24:7,
Lots of singing in the slave Churches but the Song of Moses and the Lamb are unheard for the most part in the land of the slave and the home of the hesitant.
They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. Isaiah 24:9
Not many meat eaters left in the land of the antelope and the buffalo.
The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. Isaiah 24:10
Confusion is from tohuw "1) formlessness, confusion, unreality, emptiness" but it is most often translated vanity. The US and the NWO, the UNHoly Roman Empire is a civil matrix of our own
[There is] a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. Isaiah 24:11
[There is] is not in the text. The word street here is translated without far more than street. Translated without 70 times, street 44, abroad 21, out 17, outside 2, fields 2, forth 2,
highways. Another good example of the flexibility of words in the hands of a translator. Put your trust where you will. Without the wine they have made they will be weeping.
In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. Isaiah 24:12
Note that the word city in 12 is not the same as the city in verse 10. It actually means civil powers in 12. It is the same word that means anguish. This desolation is from shammah meaning "waste, horror, appalment" The word left is also translated remnant and the gate which can keep the anguished is beaten down and "ruined".
And now when the above is in place and it is a new aspect is introduced.
When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, [there shall be] as the shaking of an olive tree, [and] as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. Isaiah
The gleaned grapes are often the sweetest.
They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea. That singing is heard in the land today. Isaiah
Not much harmony but I can hear the tune amongst the waves of ignorance and apathy.
Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, [even] the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea. Isaiah 24:15
So, who is the dry land of the LORD where God prevails? Who is separate from the roaring sea that is tossed to and fro.
From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, [even] glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously;
yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. Isaiah 24:16
Yes the song is being sung but there is treachery a foot in the world.
Fear, and the pit, and the snare, [are] upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. Isaiah 24:17
The trap is laid and their tables are snares as David fortold.
And it shall come to pass, [that] he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the
snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. Isaiah 24:18
How come the ones who come out of the pit are snared? Because they don't come out they only come up to the middle [midst] of the pit. The windows are "lattice, window, sluice" and is even translated
So, what is this about?
Everything in the spiritual realm has a counter part in the physical. So these words have first a spiritual meaning and then are manifested physically. What are the high chimneys and why does this
"foundation" of the earth shake? Now think Spiritual and physical.
The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
Without going nuclear here clean dissolved is from parar which translated is break 25 times, make void 5, defeat 2, disannul 2, disappoint 2, frustrate 2, come
to nought 2, break asunder 1, cause to cease 1, clean 1, divide 1, and dissolved only once. It means to break, to frustrate.
The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise
again. Isaiah 24:20
Everything in God's Kingdom and creation has an original spiritual significance which is manifested in several levels of the physical universe. I cannot say that enough. One shaking
leads to the next. There is an old joke where you imitate a staggering drunk and then you do an imitation of a drunk in an earthquake where you walk normal. One Man's music is another man's thunder,
one man's shaking is another man's dance. One man's salvation is another man's destruction. Like the gas of peace in Things to Come those who would not accept peace died. It is all relative to where
you are in relation to the world.
The earth is moved because the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it.
First the spirit then the physical comes into being.
To those who know only the physical forms like governments, false religion, cities, insurance companies, malls and other social services their world will be shaken and destroyed.
Those who see the Ways of the LORD shall know that the shaking is part of the plan and that the cause was set in motion long ago.
And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones [that are] on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. Isaiah 24:21
The ones who think they are high will be brought down. Things will turn over "Bottom rail on top." Those who truly serve shall be greater than those who say they serve as they
devour the people.
And they shall be gathered together, [as] prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Isaiah 24:22
They are already in a pit of ignorance and are deft and blind and have been caught in their own trap but they will also dig a pit for themselves in the earth.
Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously. Isaiah 24:23
The word moon is found 40+ times In the old testament but this word is labanah is only found 3 times and can mean moon as in the color white, moon white. So, the color of the
moon and sun shall be interfered with. This too has a spiritual and physical presentation.
People presume that this is all talking about the end times but what is the end times. There is no end of the world as a planet being spoken of here. Isaiah was written on several levels and for many
times. We undergo one level in every life on earth but in time it will also repeat itself on a grander scale. But there is no talk of the end of the planet.
Religionist love to jump around in the Bible assume that this and that are all talking about the singular "end times". This is generally do to a manufactured theology by whimsical interpretations of
questionable translations. You can see by just a few examples that single Hebrew words are presented in a wide variety of forms and meanings. This coupled with visual imagination and out of context
quotation leads to complex theories of erroneous prophecies.
Almost nowhere in the Bible do they talk about the end of the planet.
In Psalms 19:4 end is from qatseh which has to do with edge or extremity.
In Isaiah 62:11 qatseh is used for end but world is from eret not tebel in Psalms.
Besides in Isaiah 45:17 we see"[But] Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end."
In Matthew 13:39 the "end of the world" is only the end of an age, aeon.
The same is true in Matthew 13:40, Matthew 13:49, Matthew 24:3, Matthew 28:20, Hebrews 9:26.
Many people make a big deal out of Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more
The word earth here is gay and heaven is the one for the vaulted sky. This is not a new planet but a planet renewed. The word new which is from kainos is even partially
defined as fresh.
There still will be an ocean but the sea, or rather what sea is a metaphor for will be gone.
There was a new earth and a new heaven after the flood and in our new heaven and earth there will be many changes too. The sun is already changing and the earth is groaning. Jesus told us what and
where to look.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Luke 21:25
The light of the LORD will be different but also the light of the sun in the physical realm. It is already changing. Distress of nations actually is a union of
You will not know the word of God unless you turn towards God's revelation. It is the Spiritual changes need to be wrought in us or no other preparation shall be of value.
We must change or the world will change us as it changes and we may not survive. In order to survive into the next world men must be willing to die to the world they have made for themselves. Like a
child in the womb we must open the matrix of our own making to be born again in a new light and a new life.
And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be
mine; Numbers 3:12
