To America: “Proclaim Liberty thro’ all the Land…”

“Proclaim Liberty thro’ all the Land to all the Inhabitants thereof…”

This proclamation is etched on what is known as the “symbol of American Independence” – the Liberty Bell housed in Philadelphia, the City of “Brotherly Love.” But where does this saying come from?

The “Liberty Bell”

It is a quote from Biblical Scripture, Leviticus 25:10 pertaining to the Jubilee called for by God after He brought the House of Israel out of their oppression in Egypt…

Exodus from Egypt

“For the LORD our God, it is He that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:” Josh 24:17

On Earth as it is in Heaven

Jesus said we should pray in this manner: My Father who is in heaven; Holy is Your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven…”

If you’ve seen our presentation on The Firmament, you know there are numbers and signs contained in the two greatest bodies we see in the heavens, the Sun and the Moon, relating to their diameters in relation to the two great structures in God’s Word, Noah’s Ark and the Ark of the Covenant. These contain measures only the Creator could have known from the very foundation of creation. These two heavenly bodies will be the stars of a great show coming soon!

Deliver Us from Evil

Vain Repetitious Prayers

While the ‘Lord’s Prayer’ continues to be mindlessly recited in congregations who gather in their ‘houses of worship,” not many know the origin or the meaning of the prayer. Jesus’ preliminary instruction on how to pray to the Father in heaven is this:

“When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray… that they may be seen of men… And don’t use vain repetition as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Don’t you be like them, for your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. Therefore you should pray in this manner: Continue reading “Deliver Us from Evil”

On Earth as it is in Heaven

The Righteous

The ‘Beatitudes’ address those who are: “poor, in spirit; they that mourn; the meek; those who hunger and thirst for righteousness; the merciful; pure in heart; the peacemakers; persecuted for righteousness’ sake.” Y’hoshua said to those people, “Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so did they persecute the prophets who were before you… You are the Light of the world, a city set on a mountainto give light to all that are in the houseLet your Light shine before the people, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. That’s in Matthew chapter 5. It sounds like he’s talking to the children of God who are the “Lights of the world.” In fact in Romans 8:19 Paul says, “For the earnest expectation of the whole creation waits for the manifestation of the children of God!” Now that’s amazing! Where can these people be? Who is expecting them?

What or Who is the Firmament?

If we look to the Nelson’s Bible dictionary to answer this question it tells us that the Firmament is an “expanse of sky and space in which the stars and planets are set. God made the Firmament on the second day of creation to divide the waters that covered the earth from those which surrounded it (Gen 1:16).” and “…on the fourth day of creation God placed the stars, the sun, and the moon in the “firmament of the heavens.” (Gen 1:15-18)

What the Firmament reflects is the greatness of God who created it. Let’s take a look in God’s Word to see what it says and what all this might mean. “The Firmament shows forth His handiwork.” (Ps 19:1) And in the Day of Trouble/Tribulation, such as there never has been, God’s people will be delivered from evil, and those who are wise, shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever.” (Dan 12:1-3) It sounds like those ‘wise’ are the stars!

Y’hoshua states in Matthew 6:9, “After this manner you pray, ‘My Father, who is in Heaven, Holy is Your Name; Your kingdom come, Your Will be done, upon earth as it is in heaven… and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…” Continue reading “What or Who is the Firmament?”

The Firmament

The Firmament is spoken of in the beginning.
It is to come at the end,
so that the first becomes the last
and the last first.
It contains the Lights of Heaven.
The Greater, the Lesser and the Stars also.
Its purpose is to separate darkness from Light,
for darkness can not have with Light.

The spiritual works of the marvelous Firmament are purified with salt. They are spirits of knowledge, truth and righteousness in the Holy of Holies, forms of the living angels, forms of the light giving spirits. -DSS 4Q405 19

“Moreover the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun, and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD binds up the breach of His people, and heals the stroke of their wound.” – Isaiah 30:26

“And after six days Jesus takes Peter, James and John… and  bringht them up into an high mountain apart, and was  transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the Sun…” – Matthew 17:1-2

Jesus said, “I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it  is day: the night is coming, when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” – John 9:4-5

“And there shall be signs in the Sun and in the Moon and in the Stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them because of fear and because of seeing those things which are coming on the earth: and then shall they see the Son of Adam coming in the clouds with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near!” – Luke 21:25-28

Jesus was the light of the world, the Sun, the light of day, and he spoke of a night that was coming. Who then are the lights by night, the Moon and the Stars? And what will they do to the wicked shepherds, the wicked hirelings in the vineyard of the LORD, and the thieves in the Temple?
