Judah has a Birthright, Ephraim has a Blessing: Discussion

Two prophetic destinies are soon going to collide with each other. The Father’s final hand against the “other side” is playing out even now. People, nations and their angelic overlords are soon going to be thrown to the ground, never to recover any exalted status against HaShem and His inheritance again.

This happens as a result of the RE-Unification of the Whole House of Israel back into its destiny under one leader. When the Stone/Shepard of Israel will be the acknowledged King over his people. Out of the backdrop of chaos and turmoil that this will create, will be the loudest “weeping and gnashing” (shock and anger) against Elohim the world has ever heard.
Fists will be raised in anger and defiance at HaShem in his final Messianic paradigm as Messiah ben Dawid.

This is the SOUND of Babylon falling in Isaiah chapter 14 .

This is the angel of HaShem announcing with a loud and MIGHTY VOICE “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!

Isaiah chapter 14

This is the LOUD LAMENT of Pharaoh and the Eqyptians in Ex 11:4.

“And there shall be a LOUD CRY in all the land of Egypt, such as has never been or will ever be again” (at the death of all the Firstborns).

Ex 11:4

The prophets are all clear, “This is the plan devised for the whole earth and this is the hand stretched out over all the nations.” Loud weeping and gnashing of teeth (shock and anger) is the immediate future of those who fight against the plans of Adonai.

It’s pretty clear HaShem is in charge. It will be the end of the evildoers.

“I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity.”

Isaiah 13:11

The wheat and chaff receive completely different endings. Many people and nations will not be happy when the final separation occurs.

Forget trying to see this all on a Pshat level . We are dealing with big biblical ARCHETYPES. HaSatan aka the angel of death, the evil inclination/impulse and the serpent are all the same thing. They just manifest in different parts of our persona, our Body, Soul and Spirit. We have it backwards. The Bible tells its stories not as history but as repositories for wisdom and understanding. It is brilliantly coded so that on every level we have all the instruction, information and warnings we need to navigate this life successfully.

Egypt, Pharaoh and oppression. Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar and its kingdom. HaSatan, fallen angels and wicked men. All archetypes of spiritual realities. These threesomes represent:

  1. An Angelic Ruler, a supra-natural god (elohim) over,
  2. actual territories, spheres of influence, dominions or realms.
  3. The firepower/means of enforcement by which the rule and authority is enforced.

Egypt, Pharaoh and its story of oppression and deliverance corresponds to the Body. This is in Hebrew our nefesh soul. It is our carnal, bodily nature. The notion is that Elohim fashioned a container, a receptacle, a “body” and put into it animating (live action) programs that enabled that body to move, eat, reproduce and sustain itself. Because of the “fall” this body is insidiously under assault by an army of fallen entities bent on causing it to choose poorly and wrongly. Making sure we reap negative calamitous results. This propensity or inclination for “doing evil” is hardwired into our DNA. If left unchecked and not conquered, it can become the default mechanism or program by which we operate. This is being in Egypt subject to a harsh taskmaster. Who has not cried out to a deliverer to rescue us from addictions or sicknesses. Or famine or plague.

Babylon is coded to be analogous to our Ruach soul. This is akin to our psychological level of operation. It is our “heart” our emotions, passions and personality traits. It known as the astral world or the psyche. It is the “waters below”, referred to when Elohim separated lower and upper waters and created an “expanse”. A place for thoughts and imaginations to have plenty of room to roam, explore, experience and expand. From ecstasy to agony.
Most of the Jews did not go back to Jerusalem after the destruction of the 1st temple and their deportation to Babylon. Most chose to stay in this most grandiose of empires. They found they had plenty of freedom to roam, explore, experience and expand in this kingdom. There is an inherent danger in this realm to be swept up with the grandeur, beauty, prosperity and scale of this dominion. You could “prosper and be in health” in this realm. This is why it is hard for most to “Come out of her” to flee Babylon. The dark side underbelly of this realm is its utter ruthlessness to punish and subjugate all its adherents that would want to break away.

This is the realm of the slippery serpent…promising but with no real power to deliver. Who has not experienced the bitter remorse of grasping for “all that glitter and gold” only to find out that it is like water running through your fingers. Fleeting and unsustainable. There are many dangers to our Ruach soul in this illusionary world. You can get lost, beyond finding. You can become confused, empty, vain, full of wrong reasoning’s and false boasting’s. Idols. Our emotions can most certainly lead us down dead end paths that lead to destruction. It is in this realm where the battle is fiercest. This victory will be the final redemption.

When the Righteous are rescued from this Oppressor as Isaiah states in chpt 11:3-6:

“And it will be in the day when the LORD gives you rest from your pain and turmoil and harsh service in which you have been enslaved.”

Isaiah 11:3-6

On that day the Righteous will declare boldly “How the oppressor (Babylon) has ceased, And how his fury has ceased!” YHVH has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers. It struck the peoples in anger with unceasing blows; it subdued the nations in rage with relentless persecution.”……”Isaiah further prophesies in verse 22b “I will cut off from Babylon her name and her remnant, her offspring and her posterity”…..26 “This is the plan devised for the whole earth and this is the hand of HaSHEM stretched out over all the nations.”

When all the dust settles from these apocalyptic moves of HaShem there will emerge a new kingdom, a new destiny and a new people that will astound the world. This breaking, shattering, utter demolition represents all fallen flesh and soul being obliterated.

“The whole earth is at rest and is quiet; They break forth into shouts of joy.”

Isaiah 14:7

The rest and reward for the righteous is promised. In the final gilgul, the final cycle, it will all be accomplished. Sabbath rest. Each person “under their own vine” will flourish in their body. soul and spirit. Life (Chaim) Liberty (Jubilee) and the pursuit of happiness (true destiny) will be each man’s portion according to his works with none to make him afraid.

Now for the mystery. In Genesis 28:14 HaShem tells Jacob:

“Thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”

Genesis 28:14

Here is Judah that always had a birthright to guide them and Ephraim/Joseph always had a blessing/bread to sustain them wherever they went.

One family that became two nations. One lost to itself, history and the world. The other conquered, exiled and now regathered as a nation. Always known to itself and the world. These inheritors of the promises, this faithful elect remnant from both houses, this plant of righteousness that will inherit the earth. Its people will come from every tribe, nation, tongue and people, that are scattered all over the north, south, east and west. This seed has one ruler and are of one kingdom. The Word of HaShem, YHVH is their lawgiver, deliverer, Shepard, mashiach. Or as the Amidah says our Melech, Oser, Moshia, Magen. The way to the Tree of Life will again be open again and all the nations will be able to drink from its waters and eat its fruit.

May His NAME be lifted high, His kingdom come, His will be done.
Baruch Shem k’vod malchuto le’olam va’ed.

Shalom, shalom….find peace and rest. Soon and very soon.
