The Word of God, Daily Manna, the realm where Heaven and earth meet

October 20, 2017

Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer’s inkhorn at his side; and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”  To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.”  Ezekiel 9:3-6.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

When Ezekiel was with the exiles from Jerusalem that were taken to Babylon, in the settlement by the River Chebar, I opened the heavens to him and gave him divine visions of many things and gave him My Words to speak to the nation Israel.  In the sixth year of the exile as he sat in his house near Babylon, My Spirit lifted him up and brought him to Jerusalem.  Ezekiel 8:1-3.  I took him to the temple of Jerusalem and showed him the abominations, that is, the idols that had been set up there.  But he also saw My glory there.  I took him in and showed him the horrible abominations My people were committing there in the worship of idols and their wicked conduct.  Their sins required divine justice to fall for they knew better than this.

But as you well know, I do not desire to destroy you but to save you.  It is My Will that all people be saved and come to know the truth.  1 Timothy 2:3-4.  It is not My Will that any should perish.  2 Peter 3:9.  And that is why I sent My Son to atone for all your abominations from the beginning to the end of time.  John 3:16.  The wrath of divine justice—holy, righteous, and pure that tolerates no evil—fell on Him.  And He shields those who are in Him from the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:10; Romans 5:9.  I did not destine you for wrath, but to gain salvation through your Lord Jesus Christ, who died for you.  1 Thessalonians 5:9.

Now look at what I told Ezekiel and you will see the shadow of the good things to come.  For you know that My Holy Spirit testifies to Jesus, which is the spirit of prophecy, and that all of the Old Testament is a shadow of Christ who is the substance.  Colossians 2:17; Hebrews 10:1.

As the vision continued, Ezekiel saw six men come from the upper gate, which faces north, with destroying weapons in their hands (remember that 6 is the number of man who was created on the sixth day of creation), but among them came another man, clothed in linen with a writing case at his waist (the seventh man, the number of completion and rest).  And they all stood beside the bronze altar.  Ezekiel 9:1-2.  Bronze is the metal that symbolizes judgment.  Remember the bronze serpent Moses lifted up in the desert?

From the cloud of My glory, Ezekiel heard Me call to the man clothed in linen with the inkhorn of the scribe.  I told Him to pass through the midst of the city and mark a mark on the foreheads of all who sighed and groaned over the abominations being committed in their midst.  In other words, those whose hearts were loyal to Me as their LORD and had not turned to idols.  Ezekiel 9:4.

Let Me show you what you miss here if you do not read this passage in My language of Hebrew, the Holy tongue.  The word you see translated as “mark” does mean that, in fact, it means mark, sign and covenant.  But it is a particular spelling that you must see.  It is the tav.  The word “tav” spelled with a tav (with a dagesh) and a vav, is pronounce “tav” and is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet.  Originally written as a pictogram it was written as a cross, that is “+”.  So, I actually told the man clothed in linen to mark their foreheads, using the ink quill that the scribe used to write sacred Scripture on the Torah scrolls, with the sign of the cross.

And then as the vision continued, Ezekiel heard Me say to the six men with the destroying weapons of judgment to pass through the city after the man clothed in linen and strike down in justice for their wicked deeds of bloodshed, murder, oppression and idolatry all who were not marked with the sign of the cross.  I told them not to touch anyone on whom there was the mark (the tav). Ezekiel 9:4.  Does this remind you of the Passover?  Those marked with the blood of the lamb were shielded from the judgment.

When Ezekiel saw the divine judgment that would slay those who committed wickedness, he fell on his face and cried out saying “Ah, Adonai (My Lord) YHWH will you destroy (Aleph Tav) all the remnant of Israel by pouring your wrath on Jerusalem?”  You do not see the Aleph Tav that appears there translated to English for there is no translation other than putting the first and last letters of the alphabet (aleph beth).  You will only find it in the original Hebrew, sitting there stark and alone taking the blow of destruction for the sins of the people.

And Jesus tells you who the Aleph Tav is.  On the island of Patmos in the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, My risen Son appeared to John in all His glory—dressed in fine white linen with a golden sash around Him—and told John that Jesus Himself is the Aleph to the Tav. (You see it in Greek as the Alpha to the Omega, but in Hebrew that is the Aleph (the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet) to the Tav (the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet).  Revelation 1:8; Revelation 22:13. He is My Word made flesh.  He is the beginning to the end and all in between.  And all My just wrath fell on Him.  I destroyed Him for your sins.  I made Him who knew no sin become sin so that in Him you become My righteousness.  2 Corinthians 5:21.

And when you are marked with His sign that He is your LORD you are saved from the wrath to come.  Just as Ezekiel saw the six (the number of man) destroyers pass over those marked with the sign of the cross—those claiming Me as their LORD, so too will those who have taken My Son as their LORD be passed over when My justice, My wrath on all that has been evil, falls upon the peoples of the earth.

There are many other important things to note here.  Did you notice that the tav was marked on the foreheads of the faithful?  In fact, you find another witness of this in the Book of the end times, the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  There I tell you that I put a seal on the foreheads of those who are My servants, Revelation 7:3, and that those saved in the tribulation period have the Name of Jesus and My Name written on their foreheads.  Revelation 14:1.  And in the closing chapter of Revelation I tell you that all those in Heaven look upon My Face and My Name is on their foreheads.  Revelation 22:4.

Do you remember that I told Moses to make a crown, a gold plate, to hang on the forehead of the High Priest that said “Holy to the LORD”?  And this was done because the High Priest bore whatever guilt the Israelites incurred in consecrating any of their sacred gifts, so this plate had to always be on the forehead of the High Priest so that the people would find favor with Me.  Exodus 28:36-38.   It was a sacred crown over the front of the miter at his forehead.  Leviticus 8:9.

And I told Moses to have the people always keep My Words before their eyes to let them be as a pendant on their foreheads.  Deuteronomy 6:8; Deuteronomy 11:18.

My Son is your High Priest and He has loved you and made you a kingdom of priests by His blood.  Revelation 1:5-6.  You will reign with Me forever.  Revelation 22:5.  I crown you with glory and honor.  Psalm 8: 5-6.  Those who persevere through temptation will receive the crown of life, which I promised to those who love Me.  James 1:12.  And to all those who long for Jesus to return, I award the crown of righteousness.  2 Timothy 4:8.  And My Name and that of Jesus will be the part of the crown that rests upon your forehead, like that of the High Priest.  And Jesus Himself, just as Ezekiel saw Jesus as One like the son of man in fine linen inscribing the cross upon the foreheads of the faithful, will give you who are faithful to death, the crown of life.  Revelation 2:10.

Do you recall that Jesus prayed at the Last Supper that I would glorify Him with the glory that He had with Me before the world began?  John 17:5.  Jesus always existed as One God with Me, His goings forth are from old, from eternity, Micah 5:2, but when the fullness of time had come, I sent Him into the world to be born of a woman, born under the law, to ransom those under the law so that you might receive adoption.  Galatians 4:4-7.  He laid aside His God-powers to become as one of you in every way except sin for about 33 years, but He existed in glory from all eternity to eternity.  So do not be surprised that He was involved in Ezekiel’s visions.  He also appeared to Daniel while he was in exile clothed in linen and in the same glory in which He later appeared to John when he was in exile on the island of Patmos.  Of course, when John saw Him he had been crucified and had risen and I had again glorified Him with the glory He had before the world began.  Ezekiel and Daniel saw Him in the glory He had with Me before the world began.

Let Me show you and you will be blessed.

While Daniel was in exile in Babylon, I showed Daniel many things to come from the actual time of the Messiah to His ascension, and then into the tribulation and the end times.  In one vision, Daniel experienced the following, which I will let him describe for you:  “ On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was by the bank of the great river, that is, the Tigris, I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with pure gold of Uphaz. His body also was like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a tumult.”  Daniel 10:5-7.  And Daniel fell face down on the ground like a dead man.  But the One dressed in linen and girded in gold, reached out and raised him to his feet saying: “O Daniel, beloved of high esteem, understand the words that I am about to tell you and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” Daniel 10:9-10.  And then in line 14 you see the Aleph Tav appear.  The One dressed in linen with eyes as flaming fire says to Daniel:  “Now I have come to make you understand Aleph Tav what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”  Daniel 10:14.  You will not see the Aleph Tav in your translation, it is only found in the Hebrew and they have no translation for it (they still have not received Jesus as Lord).  And then the One clad in linen with the eyes as of fire proceeds to tell Daniel of the rise and fall of kingdoms and nations up to the tribulation period right up to the final judgment.  Daniel 10-12.

Now fast forward to the island of Patmos after My Son had entered your world and died for your sins, was raised, and returned to My right hand where I exalted Him again in glory.  And I will let John himself tell you what he saw in his vision: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”  Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet were like burnished bronze, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters.”  Revelation 1:10-16.  And John did just like Daniel, he fell on his face like a dead man at the feet of the glorious Lord whose Face shone like the sun.  Revelation 1:16-17.  And, as with Daniel, My Son reached out His hand and touched him and strengthened him to stand before Him.  Revelation 1:17.  And then My Son went on to tell John of the things that would take place in the future in the tribulation all the way to the final judgment.

There is much more to show you in the visions of Ezekiel, Daniel and John, and we have not even touched Isaiah or Jeremiah or Zechariah in this session, but I will stop here for now.  Let My Word dwell in you richly.  There is so much more in My Word than you can gather in one reading.  And without knowing Hebrew you can miss the Tav and the Aleph Tav and so much more for every name, every number and every place has a meaning that you cannot find without knowing Hebrew.  But they are there for you.

I love you.  If you have taken My Son as Lord know that your forehead is sealed with the Tav, the sign of the Cross, and it will shield you from the wrath to come.  You can lie down and sleep peacefully tonight.  You are covered.  You are safe.  You are forgiven, cleansed, redeemed and reconciled.  You have nothing to fear but everything good to hope for. Rejoice!  Again I say, Rejoice!  I am coming soon with your crowns with Me!
