On this last day of Hanukkah 2020, observing the rededication of the Second Temple, remembering King David’s wholehearted commitment to the Eternal King [ unlike most kingdomless politicians and unlike false priesthood and most “professional ministers, pastors,” ] and to the building of the dwelling place for the Name of YHWH [ Psalm 132; Psalm 110 ], “… the place that the LORD [ Eternal King ] your God will choose, to make His Name dwell there, …” Deuteronomy 12
The Temple, House of the Lord, was the most Sacred Place in the Kingdom of Israel and on Earth. [ “When the house was built, it was with stone prepared at the quarry, so that neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron was heard in the house while it was being built.” 1 Kings 6:7 ] As for the mobile Tabernacle, YHWH had given specific instructions on how it was to be built, according to the pattern of what it is in Heaven. [ “And see that you make them after the pattern for them, which is being shown you on the mountain.” YHWH, Ex 25:40; On Earth as it is in Heaven; ] as well as the special instructions for how the Prieshood was to minister to the Eternal King and serve the people of the Kingdom of YHWH on Earth, as described in the Torah.
One of the greatest highlights of the story of the process of the establishment, evolution and expansion, of the Kingdom of YHWH on Earth, recorded in the history of the Isaachians, Covenanted People, our story, is King Solomon’s dedication of the First Temple, around 3,000 years ago. He built it as the Eternal King had given the design and details to King David, and in the place the Eternal King had appeared to David [ 1 Chronicles 3 ].
“… and the Lord of the sheep stood on that tower and they offered a full table before Him.” Enoch LXXXIX
After building the Temple and placing the Ark of the Covenant in the Most Holy Place, when the Levites raised a song to praise the Most High, “the house of the Eternal King, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the Eternal King filled the house of YHWH.” 2 Chronicles 5
Then Solomon said, “The LORD has said that He would dwell in thick darkness. But I have built you an exalted house, a place for you to dwell in forever.” Then the king turned around and blessed all the assembly of Israel, while all the assembly of Israel stood. And he said, “Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who with His hand has fulfilled what He promised with His mouth to David my father, … Now the LORD has fulfilled His promise that He made. For I have risen in the place of David my father and sit on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and I have built the house for the Name of the LORD, the God of Israel. And there I have set the ark, in which is the Covenant of the LORD that He made with the people of Israel.”
Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the assembly of Israel and spread out his hands. Solomon had made a bronze platform five cubits long, five cubits wide, and three cubits high, and had set it in the court, and he stood on it. Then he knelt on his knees in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread out his hands toward heaven, and said, “O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like You, in Heaven or on Earth, keeping covenant and showing steadfast love to your servants who walk before you with all their heart,… Now, O my God, let your eyes be open and your ears attentive to the prayer of this place.
“And now arise, O LORD God, and go to Your
You and the ark of Your might.
Let Your priests, O LORD God, be clothed
and let Your saints rejoice in Your goodness.
O LORD God, do not turn away the face of
Your anointed one!
Remember Your steadfast love for
David Your servant.” [ Ps132 ]”
As soon as Solomon finished his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. And the priests could not enter the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD’S house. When all the people of Israel saw the fire come down and the glory of the LORD on the temple, they bowed down with their faces to the ground on the pavement and worshiped and gave thanks to the LORD, saying, “For He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever.” …
At that time Solomon held the feast for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from Lebo-hamath to the Brook of Egypt. And on the eighth day they held a solemn assembly, for they had kept the dedication of the altar seven days and the feast seven days. On the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people to their homes, joyful and glad in heart for the good things the LORD had done for David and Solomon and for His people Israel.”
Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD and the king’s house. All that Solomon had planned to do in the house of the LORD and in his own house he successfully accomplished. Then the LORD appeared to Solomon in the night and said to him: “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself … For now I have chosen and consecrated this House that My Name [ YHWH [ יהוה ] ] may be there forever. … But if you turn aside and forsake my statutes and my commandments that I have set before you, …” 2 Chronicles 6-7
The entire account can be read in the Sacred Books, with King Solomon’s full prayer and YHWH’s answer to King Solomon.
This year, as our Nations battle COVID-19, special attention should be directed to the wholistic and integrated worldview understood by King Solomon, as shown in his Temple Dedication Prayer,
“… whatever plague, whatever sickness there is, whatever prayer, whatever plea is made by any man or by all Your people Israel, each knowing his own affliction and his own sorrow and stretching out his hands toward this house, then hear from heaven Your dwelling place and forgive and render to each whose heart You know, according to all his ways, for You, You only, know the hearts of the children of mankind, that they may reverence You and walk in Your ways all the days that they live in the land that You gave to our fathers. …“
As well as to this portion in the Eternal Kings’ reply to King Solomon:
“… When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My Name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. …”
Many accounts in the “New Testament” writings also wisely correlate sickness and plagues with sin, individually and collectively. But focusing back on the Temple, we know that Israel, breaking and prophaning the Kingdom Covenants, built many temples with worship traditions based on and rooted in paganism, according to the ways of other peoples, walking contrary to YHWH, and to the Eternal King’s Will, Commandments, Path and Plan for the Kingdom of Israel, God’s Kingdom on Earth. With the Original Temple desacrated and destroyed, Northern and Southern Israelites dispersed around the world, Israel continued the same pattern as spoken by the prophet Hosea [ “Though Ephraim built many altars for sin offerings, these have become altars for sinning.” Hosea 8:11 ] and spiritual whoredom as expressed to Ezekiel, recorded in the Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 43:
“… While the man was standing beside me, I heard one speaking to me out of the temple, and He said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the people of Israel forever. And the house of Israel shall no more defile my holy Name, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoring and by the dead bodies of their kings at their high places, by setting their threshold by my threshold and their doorposts beside my doorposts, with only a wall between me and them. They have defiled my holy Name by their abominations that they have committed, so I have consumed them in my anger. Now let them put away their whoring and the dead bodies of their kings far from me, and I will dwell in their midst forever. “As for you, son of man, describe to the house of Israel the temple, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and they shall measure the plan. And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the temple, its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, that is, its whole design; and make known to them as well all its statutes and its whole design and all its laws, and write it down in their sight, so that they may observe all its laws and all its statutes and carry them out. …”
After the remaining of Judah [ Southern Kingdom of Israel ] rejection of Messiah, Jesus, Yeshua, Son of David/David’s Father, after the tearing of the Temple’s veil, followed by the destruction of Jerusalem and Israel’s dissolution as a nation in the Middle East, Judah’s dispersion and long exile, with the help of Ephraimites [ Britain, ] Judah is finally back to the Land Promised to Abraham for the Main Sacred Center.
The Second Temple, the same one the Hanukkah rededication celebration started with, the same one the Eternal King expressed His righteous anger, driving out from it all those who sold and bought in the Temple [ Mark 11:15-19, ] now without the Schekhinah, is still not under the possession and administration of Isaelites [ Isaachians, ] Jews or Judeo-Christians.
After Israel’s great victory over the Arab armies during the Six-Day War, June 1967, Israeli defense minister General Moshe Dayan met with the Council who had control over the Temple Mount from the Israeli 1948 War of Independence to the Six-Day War. The nonreligious Jew, General Dayan, did not appreciate the profound historical and spiritual significance of the Temple Mount, therefore, relinquishing administrative control to the Arab Muslims, hoping to show generosity, but perceived as weakness of Israel’s resolve to possess and to keep the Holiest Place of Worship — the Temple Mount. He also ordered Jewish warriors to remove the Israeli flag they had affixed to the golden dome, on the Dome of the Rock. What a great mistake. How far off from the heart of the Warrior-King David.
The Temple serves also as an example of Judah and “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel’s” [ Josephites, Scythians, Cimmerians, Celts, Gauls, Spartans, … ] deviation from Kingdom Covenants, from the Way of YHWH, and mixing with, immersion and acceptance of, pagan traditions and practices, replacement theologies [ alegorized and rationalized lies ], … and distance from the Center, Light, Truth, Path, Will of Heaven.
December 14, 2020 [ Note ]
YHWH made a specific Eternal Kingdom Covenant with Abraham [ Genesis 17:6, 13; … ] with the Seed of Isaac [ Genesis 21:12; ] among the many promises involved, Nations would proceed from Abraham’s Seed, from which the Eternal King would also be born into the flesh, to amplify and, among many aspects of a multidimentional multifaceted multifunctional sacred event during the “first coming” [ in which He “conquered death,” and ascended to occupy the Throne of the Father, before return to take the Throne of David, ] to make ultimate ratification of all the Covenants made with the Israelites, which He did, with the life and blood of a perfect Son of God/Son of Man, Yeshua, to empower new phases of the evolving Creative Kingdom Process. Had Israel walked closely and faithfully with YHWH, the unfolding of His plan through Israel would have proceeded in a less chaotic and less obscure manner.
Although Israel acted faithlessly, dishonorably, and “out of step” with YHWH, countless times, like when Northern and Southern Kingdoms were split due to the fact kings and people departed from the Path, prophaned Covenants, Center, etc … causing the scattering of the Israelites, many nations were still formed and even “blessed” by the scattered Israelites [ Isaachians; “The Israelite Origens of Western People,” Y.D. ] Ancient Northern Kingdom of Israel [ Lost Sheep of the House of Israel ] lost their identity first, and the term Israel [ Jacob, Hebrews ] became attributed to the Jews [ Judah ] and to those who remained with the Southern Kingdom of Israel, before also being dispersed throughout the world. Rather than “walking with YHWH,” maintaining the Sacred Center, and orderly and gradually prozelytizing the peoples, while also forming new Abrahamic Nations, in a more synchronized and consciously aware manner, in one accord with the Heavens, Israel acted perfidiously and blindly.
Although with unnecessary suffering and discipline due to blindness and departure from “Plan A,” or trajectory, path, YHWH still kept and keeps His promises. By the time many Nations, including America [ Manasseh, ] were formed, many unconscious Israelites, without conscious sense of Isaachian Identity and Covenants, would refer to the Hebrews, children of Abraham, as if the Hebrews were only the Jewish people. “The Lost Sheep of Israel” continued to mix with the “ways” of other nations to the point that when Abrahamic Nations, such as America, was formed, there was no sense of True Identity and Kingdom of Heaven’s Calling. Examples,
From George Washington to the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island, 18 August 1790 [ … “May the Children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree, and there shall be none to make him afraid.” … ] Alegorizing from the Scriptures [ Micah 4:4 ] and unconscious about his own identity as an Israelite, Isaachian, Lost Sheep of the House of Israel, when writing to the Jews. Not unlike many other Israelites usually did/do.
George Washington [ February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799 ] was an American political leader, military general, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Previously, he led Patriot forces to victory in the nation’s War for Independence. He presided at the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which established the U.S. Constitution and a federal government. Washington has been called the “Father of His Country” for his manifold leadership in the formative days of the new nation [ Manasseh. ]
HARRY S. TRUMAN
“What do you mean, ‘helped to create’? I am Cyrus. I am Cyrus.” Harry S. Truman
Harry S. [ Shipp/Solomon ] Truman [ May 8, 1884 – December 26, 1972 ] was the 33rd president of the United States from 1945 to 1953, succeeding upon the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt after serving as the 34th vice president. He implemented the Marshall Plan to rebuild the economy of Western Europe [ Isaachians, Israelites, also, ] and established the Truman Doctrine and NATO. [ Truman’s ancestry is primarily English with some Scots-Irish, German, and French. ]. While living in Independence, he served as a Shabbos goy for Jewish neighbors, doing tasks for them on Shabbat that their religion prevented them from doing on that day.
“Truman was of course referring to the biblical Cyrus the Great – the Persian king mentioned in the books of Ezra, Isaiah, Daniel and 2 Chronicles who was the initiator and supporter of the Jewish remnant’s return to Judea and its rebuilding of the Temple: “who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of Jerusalem, ‘Let it be rebuilt,’ and of the temple, ‘Let its foundations be laid.’” [ Isaiah 44:27-28 ] Calling himself Cyrus was not audacious at all. Truman had a key role to play in helping the nascent Jewish state as the “Cyrus” of the world – the most powerful political figure – and he fulfilled it.” Jerusalem Post
Western Nations as Israeli Nations is not “church” Replacement Theology, with the view that “Christian Gentile Churches” replaced Israel [ Jews and Isaachians ], “for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable,” this is the recovery of the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel”‘s spiritual identity and return to the True Kingdom and Covenants. Many of the “Gentiles” are literally Covenanted Isaachians.
“I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to My voice, and there shall be one flock [ Kingdom ] and one shepherd [ King ].“ John 10:16
“… but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Eternal King, Matthew 10:6
“I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Eternal King, Matthew 14:24
While so much apostasy happened amongst Judah and Israel [ Matthew 13 ], massive deviation from the Kingdom Path, YHWH, faithful to the Covenants, although disciplining His People, strategically uses even the mistakes of the Isaachians to advance His Eternal/Universal Kingdom Cause.
Today, beside the about 15 million Jews [ Judah ] in the world, most of the 747,787,349 Europeans [ Oct.30.2020 ] and the almost 1 billion European emigrants in other nations, are literally Isaachians. YHWH, fulfilling the Covenanted promise made to Abraham:
“No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish my COVENANT between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an EVERLASTING COVENANT, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.” Genesis 17
As many Judeo-Christians are abandoning the religious practices rooted in paganism, upsetting many “replacement theology” religious leaders, gladly, many are finding the way back to the faith of Abraham. Many Isaachians, Lost Sheep of the House of Israel, who still see themselves as “Gentiles being grafted into the faith of Abraham as Spiritual Children,” are seeing through the defects and fallacy of the alegorized and rationalized versions of Judeo-Christianity split from foundation and returning to the True Hebrew Roots of the Christian Faith.
“Since their beginning, the people of God have stressed the importance of understanding their uniqueness, of knowing from whom they have come. Roots were always important, for Israeli faith was deeply imbedded in history. Thus knowledge of beginnings is central to biblical thought. The Old Testament opens with the book of Genesis, which in Hebrew is entitled bere’shit, “in the beginning” or “by way of beginning.” This foundational source contains many genealogical tables that fix the beginnings of the Jewish people within a specific ancient Near Eastern setting. Likewise, the New Testament begins with the Gospel of Matthew tracing the line of Jesus. Matthew introduces his account with these words: “A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham” (1:1). To be cognizant of one’s past was essential for establishing confidence about the future.” Marvin R. Wilson [ Our Father Abraham, Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith ]
With all the technology, global networking, communications, military, leadership potential, resources, …, nations, … we currently have, … this is a great time in history to reintroduce the “Kingdom Lenses” to the Isaachians, bring them back to YHWH and Covenants and Kingdom Path of righteousness, taking contingent path to advance the Eternal/Universal Kingdom Cause on Earth, restoration of Creation, Tikkun Olam, before worse scenarios than our Nations have faced with COVID-19, and other potential challenges at hand and ahead.
“… Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’” King of kings, Matthew 13
This generation can begin to move, more consciously than previous generations, according to the Great Plan to restore the True Kingdom, “I will make them One Kingdom on Earth, on the mountains of Israel.” YHWH.
My expectation and prayer, as we close this Hanukkah 2020 and observe the Sabbath, is for Judah and Israel to continue to be enlightened, awakened, for speedy return to True Kingdom Path with increased understanding of the multidimentional multifaceted Eternal/Universal Kingdom, and for us to start moving collectively, as Abrahamic/Isaachian Nations, from the wrong side of the Daniel 2 deconstructive government process [ + v – ] to the rebuilding of the /↑\ Kingdom of Heaven on Earth — Intermediate Center, than Final Center, including the Temple, House of the Great King, for the Schekhinah and Covenants between YHWH and His Covenanted People.
May the Eternal King bless you, and may you have a deep and re-creational cosmogonic Sabbath, as we get nearer the end of the year of the Gregorian Calendar. May Isaachians throughout the world continue to return to the Root of the Abrahamic Faith, anticipating the New Temple of the Eternal King.
