Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days

"And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. Gather yourselves together, and hear, you sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.

Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, you then will not excel; because you have went up to your father's bed; then have you defiled it: he went up to my couch.

Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. O my soul, come not you into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honor, be not you united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall. Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel." - Genesis 49:1-7

This was fulfilled when they put Christ on the cross, if you can see it, for it was by His death that the wall of separate which Paul spoke of to the Romans was overthrown. It was by His death that the wall of sin, separating mankind from God, was thrown down; it was by His death that the wall of the law, which separated the Jews and gentiles was thrown down, so that all of us could be partaker together of the same salvation (which He purchased by that death he died for our sins on that tree) by grace and through faith. They digged it down, by virtue of that act of placing Him on that cross, for it was by that death (which is the only way that it could have ever happened) that the walls came tumbling down! It was by Him, by Him alone, who is the only source of truly lasting salvation and strength and shalom for His people Israel. Even Yah-Hoshua, who is Yahweh God, the King of kings and the Lord of lords!

This is the message of the two prophets of Revelation 11, this is the message for the hour, it will not be by might (of any sinful man) nor by power (by any coalition of sinful men) but by Yahhoshua (who is Yahweh God) alone that truly lasting shalom will come to the land of Israel. By Him alone, in full harmony with what He has said in His Word alone, and at the time which He has appointed alone! Amen, and amen.

"Judah, you are he whom your brethren shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk." - Genesis 49:8-12

The study "Until Shiloh Comes" by Chuck Missler, which I reposted on this weblog yesterday, does a great job of showing how that these verses were fulfilled by Christ; and, will be in the future. This Shiloh is Yah-Hoshua, He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, and He holds this scepter right now today! It is He who decides who lives and who dies, it is up to Him and Him alone, and no man or coalition of men with Him! Just as He is the only one that can bring truly last shalom (salaam, peace) to Israel, for He alone is able to unite Israel as one land and people under His rule, to make them that "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all" that has never before exists of the face of the earth! Yes He alone can establish it; not by might, nor by power, but by Him alone will Israel be this!

This is the message of the two prophets of Revelation 11, this is the message for the hour, it will not be by might (of any sinful man) nor by power (by any coalition of sinful men) but by Yahhoshua (who is Yahweh God) alone that truly lasting shalom will come to the land of Israel. By Him alone, in full harmony with what He has said in His Word alone, and at the time which He has appointed alone! Amen, and amen.

"Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.

Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens: And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that is biting the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. I have waited for your salvation, O Yahweh." - Genesis 49:13-18

I found this quote, on a website, about the term viper. It says "viper: Shefifon in Hebrew, occurring only here. The Septuagint and Vulgate render it as Cerastes. On the basis of Semitic cognates, it is most probably the black and red horned viper, Pseudocerastes fieldi, that lives in the Holy Land. The Hebrew name comes from its rustling of scales. This snake digs into the sand with only his long thin horns protruding (cf. Yerushalmi, Terumah 8:3), and when birds take these horns for worms and peck at them, the snake kills them. Hence, this is seen as an indication that Dan will engage in guerilla warfare. In Talmudic tradition, this is seen as a prediction of Samson's career."

The fact that Israel tied this in with the salvation of Yahweh God, by exclaiming "I have waited for your salvation, O Yahweh.", is extremely interesting. At the time of this entry I don't possess a clear enough revelation of that, so I won't comment on it, but it is highly important. And in any event, I can say for a certainly, that just as the strength of Samson to save Israel came from Yahweh God alone, so to will the salvation of Israel itself come to them from Him and Him alone! they will have lasting peace (salaam, shalom) not by might, nor will they have it by power, they will have it by Him and Him alone. Amen, and amen.

This is the message of the two prophets of Revelation 11, this is the message for the hour, it will not be by might (of any sinful man) nor by power (by any coalition of sinful men) but by Yahhoshua (who is Yahweh God) alone that truly lasting shalom will come to the land of Israel. By Him alone, in full harmony with what He has said in His Word alone, and at the time which He has appointed alone! Amen, and amen.

"Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from there is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:) Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by the Almighty, who shall bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that is lying under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: The blessings of your father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace. There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah. The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth.

And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people." - Genesis 49:19-33

Notice this phrasing very carefully, "they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.", "and" stipulates another (who like Joseph) was separated from His brethren. The prophet Zechariah speaks of the conversation between this one, and Israel, when they ask Him of His wounds and He explains that it was of them that He received them (Zechariah 13:6; please read the whole chapter to get the context that this statement is made in). Isaiah spoke of those wounds, with which He was wounded by them, in chapter 53 of his revelations from God. This one is Yah-Hoshua, Yahweh God Himself who came down as a man, He allowed Himself to be wounded as the perfect lamb of sacrifice to atone for all the sin of all His dear children (both of the Jews and also of the Gentiles); He died for us and all of us are His by that sacrifice, by that purchase price of redemption which He paid in full for us, which sacrifice we are partakers of by grace and through faith.

Outside of Him there is no salvation, nor strength, nor any real (any lasting) shalom!

This is the message of the two prophets of Revelation 11, this is the message for the hour, it will not be by might (of any sinful man) nor by power (by any coalition of sinful men) but by Yahhoshua (who is Yahweh God) alone that truly lasting shalom will come to the land of Israel. By Him alone, in full harmony with what He has said in His Word alone, and at the time which He has appointed alone! Amen, and amen.
