Judah and Jerusalem Today

Judah and Jerusalem today

The Bible contains the history of the Judean-Christian religion, encoded in symbolism. There was an Israel and Judah in Judaism, and there is an Israel and Judah in Christianity. The Israel of Christianity is Catholic and Trinity. What makes them one is their baptism, which is in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Judah of Christianity is Pentecost. What separates them from Israelfrom Catholic and Trinity is their baptism in the name of Jesus, which is the true baptism. This is why the tribe of Judah was chosen to carry the name to Jerusalem, “the mother of us all." The mother must have the name of the father for the sake of the son. And since no man has the power to baptize us "of the Son" or "of the Holy Spirit," which are clearly spiritual baptisms, this baptism is illegitimate.

“The prophet Ezekiel reveals to us that the children are referred to as Israel in Egypt, and as Judah in the wilderness. The event that took place between Egypt and the wilderness (that caused their name to be changed) was their baptism in the Red Sea…" - The Bible Decoded, pg37.

Israel and Judah separated in baptism, but not in spirit—

“And Jehoshaphat (the king of Judah) said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses.” 1 Kings 22:4.

“A king symbolizes a spirit, and the word “horse” means “to skip; also a swallow (from its rapid flight).”  The Bible Decoded, pg 89.

“And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.”   Jeremiah 3:8

According to the words of Jeremiah God was married to Israel and Judah, meaning He had an intimate relationship with this Gentile Israel and Judah. The spirit that caused them to play the harlot spiritually is encoded in the story of Judah, whose daughter-in-law Tamar played the harlot literally. The spirit that rules Judah today, spreading throughout Christianity and beyond, is the spirit of impatience. This Gentile Judah was born in the early 1900’s, bringing revelation of baptism in the name of Jesus. But before long they became impatient for what they were promised they’d receive as Tamar got impatient waiting to be given what she was promised, which was Shelah. What this Gentile Judah began lusting for was the Holy Spirit, which is not the gift. The Holy Spirit delivers the gift!

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38

This spirit of lust and impatience gives power to the spirit symbolized by the horse, meaning to skip, also a swallow (from its rapid flight), a spirit that has spread throughout the whole earth, causing so many to skip over the important spiritual works. Some claim to have the Holy Spirit. The strong feeling that Christians feel when they accept Christ or ask Jesus into their heart is only the type-and-shadow, experienced at a mind-level. Yes, it is an incredible feeling, and yes, it can change us quickly with regard to our thinking, which being repentance” means “to think differently.” Paul experienced this mind-level conversion on the road to Damascus, seeing “a great light,” but only at a mind-level, seeing it in his mind’s eye. This is only the beginning of the salvation process encoded in the 49th Chapter of Genesis.

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power; Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defilest thou it: he went up to my couch.   Genesis 49:3,4

“Reuben” means “see ye a son,” which takes place through the power of the mind. For some, even in the literal sense if that is what is needed. This is visualization of the son. It will require the power of the heart to become the lastborn son of Jacob, “Benjamin,” meaning, “a son of the right hand,” the right hand symbolizing power— a son of the power of God. Becoming a son of the power of God requires us to complete the process found in the twelve sons of Jacob— the result of receiving christ at a heart-level through a spiritual baptism of fire, which purifies the heart, preparing it for God's gift, which is not the Holy Spirit!

“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man…   When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.”  Matthew 15:19,20; Proverbs 26:25

Most Christians claim to be "born again," a false concept spread by this Gentile Judah, which in accepting makes them Judah in the negative sense. Most can tell you the exact day. But the heart is not changed in a day. The earth, symbolizing the heart, does not bring forth her fruit in one day, as we learn from the Prophet Isaiah:

Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?” Isaiah 66:7,8

Isaiah is referring to Judah, prophesying of those that would claim to be born again or born of the spirit before experiencing the travailing or time of trouble that brings on the birth of the spirit, which must take place in order to be born of the spirit at resurrection, through which one enters the reality of the kingdom of God. The Judah of today is riding the spirit of the  horse, skipping over the works that would bring them into the exalted states they are claiming to have obtained. The negative aspect of Judah is the spirit of impatience, many forcing through the delusion of their mind that which can only take place through the transformation of their heart. I am reminded of the words of my teacher who said to me, “get off that damn horse,” and of a dream I had in the spring of 98 in which I sat upon a horse at the foot of a mountain that I knew I was about to climb. But in order to climb it I had to get off the horse. The children of Israel were afraid to climb the mount. Let us not be afraid to surmount that which has been buried deep within our heart, which in overcoming prepares us mentally and emotionally for what is coming!

“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world to try them that dwell upon the earth…Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem…” Revelation 3:10, 12

Jerusalem means founded peaceful. There is false peace, founded through false doctrines. And there is authentic peace, founded through an internal judgment.

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord. For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within the wall, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companion’s sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee…. Psalms 122
