The Time is Fulfilled

and

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Fulfilled Part 4

…Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.

Mar_1:15

It is to this first statement our last message and this message shall be devoted, as well as that which shall encompass the rest of this series, that is ” The time is fulfilled”, in part 3 the focus was upon the fulfillment, as will the beginning of this message be as it is tied in to the aspect of the time being fulfilled.

The Question which was stressed in the last part was that of ” What was a Biblically minded person living in the land of Judah, hearing the message of the Gospel as expounded by John the Baptist or of Christ, what was it that they, by reading the Law and the Prophets had anticipated when Christ spoke this our opening statement?”

What was the Good-Message? It was the good- placment, the straightening or leveling in preparation of the roadway, which was found in the Coming Christ Who proclaimed him self to be in Joh_14:6 the way, the truth, and the life and who as well boldly stated in the context of the Chapter no man can come to the Father but by him, the road way to God. This was according to the prophecy given by Malachi 3, Isaiah 40 directly seated upon the same context of the way found in Exo_23:20-33: this Way easily seen as the Law and Word of YHWH as mentioned time again as such through out the Torah of YHWH. It was this Way which was codified at the hand of Moses yet was in every jot and stroke the written cognition of Judgment found in the person of God. As well both aspects of Kingdom establishment found in this portion of Exodus takes precedents as the base of understanding the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, that is a literal national homeland or country and 2 one which is Governed by God’s Law given from Heaven to establish a literal Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

This Way which the Host of Israel shall march upon will lead to conflict, it will lead to spiritual warfare, the foundations of this Kingdom will dispossess the inhabitants of the Land whose iniquity will be fulfilled in due time according to the Gospel delivered to Abraham and to his seed, his nations and his kings, chosen as a holy race according to 1pe_2:9, the redeemed of the son’s of Adam through the Ethneh of Abraham, reconciled in the regathering of the tribes of Israel under and unto one Shepard according to the words of the prophets and of the Law, and to those who are called according to this purpose and Salvation even unto eternal life in His Son (Rom_8:28; 2Ti_1:9; 2Pe_1:3)

I hope that while this prelude to the message in forecast with the knowledge of Christ, whose glory is indeed once it is known, is hard to conceal, I pray it was to this hope it was understood by the last message, that to those men who heard the Gospel’s proclamation in the days of Christ and John this was an anticipation relayed by the scriptures.

We now move on to this son of David and foreseen King of the Kingdom, the very heir of Abraham’s pro-Evangelion, the fore-Gospel, the basis which the Gospel came upon according to Gal_3:8.

In the prior message and comipation of Scriptures a Septuagint /LXX traslation of Isa 9:6-7 was Considered:

For a child was born to us; a son was given to us, of whom the sovereignty became upon his shoulder; and his name is called, Messenger of great counsel, wonderful, counselor, God’s mightyG2478 potentate, ruler of peace, father of the coming age.

For I will bring peace upon the rulers, and his health.

And great is his sovereignty, and of his peace there is no end upon the throne of David, and his kingdomG932 to set it up and to take hold in judgment; even with righteousness from the present and into the ages. The zeal of the lord of Hosts shall do these things.

(It was pointed out that isxoros / ισχυροςG2478 is the Greek word for strength or power in Gen_32:28 when Jacob’s name was changed to Israel when he prevailed against the angel)

 

The anticipation of this Kingdom proclaimed by the Gospel was a re institution of Exodus 19, as the disciples of Christ knew was the end result of of the Coming King of Israel as recorded and proclaimed by the Ambassador Luke was a kingdom rule:

Luk_1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

and after all the preaching and the resurrection Luke tells us the disciple yet anticipated this literal fulfillment :

Act_1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

Act 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he,ye have heard of me.

Act 1:5For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Act 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

This anticipation was no doubt caused by the former sited scriptures and more, as well as by Christ’s own testimony Luke as records:

Luk_22:29-30And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

The Disciples did not interpret the Scriptures in a overly fleshly way as some may ignorantly or prejudicly suppose, rather they, as we, should take our Christ and His Word at face value, literally. It does not take a bible scholar to see the King, and Kingdom having it’s very existence in the thrown of David a kingdom of Israel’s united 12 tribes…literally.

Is it not in Isa_49:3-8 which promised that in Israel, I will be glorified… and that Christ, Messiah the Servant was formed from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of YHWH, and my God shall be my strength?

Of whom YHWH proclaimed: It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

Isa 49:7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.

Isa 49:8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages

We had read in the past compilations some of the prophecies which indicates the time of this fulfillment, it is obvious from both John and Christ’s proclamation that

this time had come, and that indeed the Kingdom was at hand.

It was as well to all the promises which was found in the Gospel of the Kingdom, which the Prophet Daniel spoke and sat his prophecies upon as well, Daniel was a prophet who was a captive in the land of Chaldea of the son’s of Judah, when the King Nebuchadnezzar king of what was one of the most vast and powerful kingdoms on earth YHWH sent a dream: And to Daniel the prophet and servant of YHWH was the interpretation given, it was and is a prophecy of much controversy, and while many will not except this explanation of this interpretation, and this I know already, it is I believe the irrefutable foundation of the time of fulfillment Christ in Mark 1:15 Exclaimed:

Dan_2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

Dan 2:32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

Dan 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them:

and the stone that smote the image

became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Dan 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

Dan 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

Dan_2:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

Dan 2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

Dan 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

Dan 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

Dan_2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Dan_2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

 

Many interpretations of the meaning of this stone cut with out hands is proposed, yet the Law of YHWH tells us about the nature of this kingdom Daniel saw which was cut or broke from a mountain, yet it self after crushing the feet of the last kingdom grows it self in to a mountain it self!

 

Exo_20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

Deu_27:5 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them.

 

This kingdom is representative of the same Exo_19:5-6 Kingdom of Priests and Holy Nation.

The Ambassador of this very kingdom of God and Heaven, Peter, told the strangers and pilgrims scattered through out the kingdom’s of the earth, yet elect and foreknown of God the Father called, to be thus:

1Pe_2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe_2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (This of course as a direct quote of Hos_1:9-10, Hos_2:23 ; Rom_9:25-26, Rom_11:30)

This very Nation, that is the Holy Ethnicity, whom God had foreknown and promised to our Father Abraham in the pro-evangel, that is by the singular seed of Christ (Gal_3:16) born of the seed of a woman (Gen_3:15), the WORD made flesh, the Nations and Kings to proceed from Abraham’s literal loins would be blessed and as a result would as well be a blessing to all families and peoples upon the earth just as promised in :

Deu_4:5-8

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments… Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

Deu 4:7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

Deu 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

The Answer to this question asked in Deuteronomy 4:7-8, seen in 1 Peter, the answer is none other than Israel when sanctified through of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. It was unto this glorious hope the kingdom became at hand through the Coming of the Way, the Truth and the Life the one foretold to have the power to raise up not only his own slain body, but to be the example of the tabernacle of David which had fallen, raised to unite the Kingdom once again to a lively hope of a kingdom of God, a Common-Wealth of Israel, A Citizenship which surpasses borders and life, beyond death a citizenship acknowledged in the thrown room of the Father YHWH God forevermore.

It was to this point the pharisees like the churches of our modern day choose to ignore, the lesson all Christians and members of the church in particular and collective should acknowledge before they ever attempt to understand any prophetic utterance or insight on eschatology or end time is Luk_17:20, this lesson is a rebuke to the future minded bible readers who even attempt to know an inkling about end times prophecy before they understand the first place of the kingdom prior described in Exo_19:6, as found in the kingdom of priest’s and holy nation, principles which are so natural, logical and realistic pervade the subject beyond the proposed spiritualism found in most understandings of God’s Kingdom:

Luk_17:20 And when he (Christ) was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

Luk_17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for,

behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Luk 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

Luk 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

Luk 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other partunder heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

Is that not clear enough so satiate our minds Christians! The Son of God, the Father of the ages to come has clearly told us to get up off of our hands, waiting in anticipation for a sign of His Coming, following the wind of every doctrine and spirit of the end times and acknowledge simplicity of the fact that Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. Luk_18:17

Here is a very interesting point on this subject: The Greek word dexhe-tai / δεξηται translated here receive only occurs in 6 verses of the whole bible including this one: Mat_10:14; Mat_18:5; Mar_9:37; Mar_10:15; Luk_9:48.

In every instance the context of the word translated receive, is in reference to ‘taking care of’, NOT to receive LIKE one, as in ‘to be like a child, infant or baby’ but rather to receive as you would take up a child in your arms or care! That is the idea of taking up the kingdom into your care, as you would receive a child so must you receive or take care of the Kingdom of God. A revolutionary light on the Idea of why such children as Christ received into His arms were likened unto the kingdom… THEY ARE THE KINGDOM, the children of the Covenant, the hope of a future Generation.

This stone has every potential to become a mountain in Christ.

Is it then any wonder that from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force? Mat_11:12

If you have not understood how this verse had a possibility in the world now perhaps it’s understanding is opened

?

Just a few verses down Christ asks this question alike:

Mat_11:16But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows (friends),

Mat 11:17And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

The context is followed in Mat_11:20 :

Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done,

because they repented not.

 

No matter how the message was given, in happiness or in sadness, it would not be received, they will not be happy with the message of Repentance, to understand the Kingdom primary place, they instead look here and there, but never believe it is repentance which comes from within.

What Generation are we likened unto?

The Time is Fulfilled

and

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Anticipation Part 3

…Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.

Mar_1:15

The message or evangelism of the kingdom by repentance was discussed in the last study, showing that which was spoke by the Law and prophets as the message which was proclaimed by John the Messenger or Angel according to Mal_3:1 and Exo_23:20, He was the voice of one crying in the wilderness preparing the straight way of the Lord, yet John was not that Way he was rather the leveler, the straightener of the landscape making way for the straight path of Christ, who directly proclaimed himself as the Way the Truth and the Life and that NO one comes to the Father but by Him.

It hopefully was conveyed and understood that John’s message of repentance and of baptism came from the scriptures prior to John, from the Law and prophets before him, that was his validation for truth, in this way John spoke with certainty that what he spoke was accurate, and we as well only when we speak in accordance with that which is validated before hand know that we speak according to the Truth of the Gospel, the Good or straight message. Even in the coming of Christ this was a crucial point, and in the coming of the Kingdom, the want to acknowledge if one truly was beholden to the Gospel was to try it by the scriptures, to this point spoke the LORD YHWH from the time he reveled himself to the sons of Adam, from the time the subtle Serpent in Gen 3:1 spoke according to the command of God yet contrary to YHWH’s directives in what God required for obedience.

To the same point Moses spoke concerning those who claim to be prophets or dreamers of dreams, those who give signs and wonders that actually happen, yet they proclaim a message that is contrary to the Way and ways of YHWH:

Deu_13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Deu_13:1-5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. (Exo_23:20-26)

As well Isaiah summarizes the same sentiment in:

Isa_8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

Isa_8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

It is imperative that repentance according to the word of God, the Law of God, and the testimonies of God are ascertained in a concept of mind, that is a mind change, a repentance according to the scriptures. If we think that in any way the Life and Truth of Christ, that which we may call the Gospel is contrary to the least of scriptures…It is another Gospel and another Jesus, another Christ and another Kingdom we are looking for.

If the validation of the scriptures supports John son of Zechariah the Baptist as the messenger of the Way of Christ, and that messenger is represented in the words of the supporting prophets and the Law, then the Way truth and life of Christ is the same way which brought Israel out of Egypt, a way of faith and trust in YHWH to lead them to a kingdom they would subdue according to the promise given to Abraham as well as according to the iniquity of the inhabitants of the land of Canaan Gen_15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. which was according to the curse of Canaan Gen_9:25 . Yet in conjunction with this way which lead to the promised land, this kingdom of God, was the Way which lead to the governance of this Kingdom and promised land, a Way steeped in repentance according to the Law of God Codified by Moses for a National Law to rule the Nation of Israel, this was YHWH’s very own cognition of judgment written into a code of legislation, a Law to rule a Kingdom, a government of His people, by His People and for His people, which keeps HIM as the focus of the Kingdom, thus A kingdom of God, ruled by the dictates of Heaven, from whence God Spoke to, and in

Deu_4:35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt.

And in

Exo_20:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

Thus this Kingdom of Israel, to be ruled by YHWH’s Law was a kingdom of Heaven upon Earth,

Deu_11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

 

Or as our Lord Christ teaches his disciple, that is those who bind up YHWH’s Laws and testimonies as there Light, we pray Mat_6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. and this we pray before we even ask for our daily bread…

Deu_11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

Deu 11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

The way of the Gospel of Christ is the same way as Exodus 23:20, it is a way to a Kingdom, it is the way, the truth and the Life set by example of the King, the very Law made flesh, the Word made flesh, the truth of God’s commandments, words, and Law made flesh which is the road, the way, the straight path messaged by John, proclaimed as the Gospel.

Thus it is both aspects that are in need of focus, that of the Kingdom as a National home land or country, and that of a Kingdom made up of those who are subject to the king and marching upon the Way which leads to the Father and the King of all!

So when Christ proclaimed that the time was fulfilled and the Kingdom was at hand what fulfillment was he referring to that the people who believer the Scriptures would acknowledge?

We may safely conclude with the prophetic psalms of David or of the prophets to show the place of the anticipations of a person awaiting the kingdom come in the days of Christ, the biblical impact is important.

THE DOMINION MANDATE

IS

THE BASIS OF THE KINGDOM

…Be fruitful and multiply…

As said plenty of time before, the Dominion Mandate is the foundation of Adam’s son’s place in the world, it shows us primarily that dominion of governance is a blessed state and it is always accompanied by fruitfulness and multiplicity:

So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion… Gen_1:26-28

To this dominion was the same made to Noah and his heirs in Gen_9:1 ;

In continuation the first time this Dominion is associated with the word King is in:

Gen_17:6..thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

So here is where the roots of Dominion are by Faith an anticipation of a Kingdom on account of nations and kings coming from Abram now called Abraham. It should also be noticed for future compilations that Abraham is promised to be increased into nations and kings:

LXX 17:6 And I will increaseG837 you exceedingly exceedingly. And I will establish you for nations;G1484 and kingsG935 from you will come forth.

There is no place in this statement for Spiritual sons of Abraham, rather in both the Hebrew and the great a very simple Reality of agriculture is promised, with out need of a spiritual interpretation, that is from this Father of Fruitfulness, Abraham, will come literal seed, and literal children, which will become an Ethneh or a Ethnically related people by a common father “Abraham”, a race of common origin which will have Kings (MaLeKIM in the Hebrew or Basileis in the Greek-plurals).

THE PRO-GOSPEL of ABRAHAM

This is important because this portion of Scripture to Abraham is by extension, what Paul identifies as part of what is called the Gospel in Gal_3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations through faith, preached before the gospelG4283 (literally: pro-evanggelisato / προ-ευηγγελισατο )unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. accourding to Gen_12:2-3, which inturn transfers by the same message to the following promises Gen_13:16, Gen_15:5, before Abraham’s circumcision and after in Gen_17:5-7, (Gen_17:16, Gen_18:18, Gen_22:17, Gen_28:3-4, Gen_28:14, Gen_32:12, Gen_46:3; Gen_48:4; Exo_1:7; Num_1:1-65 and beyond.) It is well to note that the English phrase ‘preached before the gospel’ is only derived by 1 triple compound word with the suffix which gives the gospel a present tense position, prefixed by the word ‘pro’, thus telling us that the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations through faith pro-evagelized at that very time to Abraham… This is the ground word of the Gospel of the kingdom!

Exo_19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

forwarded to the Gentiles or nations sprung from the loins and seed of Abraham by Peter the ambassador in:

1pe_2:5-9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

These are the Nation of Abraham, Abraham’s fruitfulness, being seen in the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, in Exodus at the very chapters where we are told that YHWH spoke from Heaven…a kingdom of Heaven.

By this promise of Kingship to proceed from Abraham carried into the time of Moses, whose giving of the Law made direction for the King: And to Moses YHWH again reveled His Law of His King, and thus of God’s Kingdom:

Deu_17:14 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;

Deu 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

Deu 17:16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.

Deu 17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.

Deu 17:18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:

Deu 17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

Deu 17:20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

After this came Saul who failed, then David who was given the eternal kingship ad of whom all the King’s of Israel have sprung to this day. Yet David or any of His sons did not attain to the measure of this Law, no matter how righteous the records and chronicles relay their actions. Until the beginning of the Gospel of Jesu Christ.

Yet this was by this scriptural descent the King was to come, and the king’s sons.

The people of Judah, hearing the preaching of John the messenger and Christ Jesus the Message of the Word of this very Law made flesh according to Joh_1:1-14, this Kingdom Law summarizes the person of the Anointed King of Israel our Israelite ancestors longed to see fulfill all the proclamations of the Gospel by the Law and Prophets, to set the people’s feet aright on the path which led to righteousness, justice and mercy; the stern Word of God which breaths upon flesh and it withers as grass, yet it’s Spirit and testimony stands forever, it is alive, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb_4:12

It was to this Kingdom anticipated but not prepared for our Christ came, and his Angel came before him, the people seemingly to not understand the measure of repentance required to have such a kingdom…Do WE! DO WE UNDERSTAND WHAT KING WE ARE SUBJECT TO?

Consider a Reading from a Septuagint /LXX translation of Isa_9:6-7

For a child was born to us; a son was given to us, of whom the sovereignty became upon his shoulder; and his name is called, Messenger of great counsel, wonderful, counselor, God’s mightyG2478 potentate, ruler of peace, father of the coming age.

For I will bring peace upon the rulers, and his health.

And great is his sovereignty, and of his peace there is no end upon the throne of David, and his kingdomG932 to set it up and to take hold in judgment; even with righteousness from the present and into the ages. The zeal of the lord of Hosts shall do these things.

(Interest mention: ισχυροςG2478 is the Greek word for prevail when Jacob’s name was changed to Israel.)

Thou Shalt Not Steal

Exodus 20:15 / Deuteronomy 5:19

The Hebrew word for theft is a word many people already know, as similar slang is used in American-English for the same action: GNaB or nab, perhaps a help in remembering the word?

The universal Idea of stealing or theft as a wrong among cultures and laws of diverse peoples as well as creatures is absolute, that is the Idea of one or many taking from another or others what is not theirs is a wrong; yet it may come as stumble to those who wish primary laws of morality held as Christian to be universally understood to all peoples that theft or stealing is not the same for every culture, while most peoples have a general idea of what is theft, what is so for one culture is not to another. This is the case even among cultures which are genetically identical, yet generationally separated by time. This is the case in today’s so called christian culture opposed to the christianity of our separateist ancestors in America, and those to their Israelite ancestors of Moses to Nehemiah’s day.

When Citizenship is spoken of with in the Common-Wealth their are 2 particular words which God Law uses over and over again, that is Brother and Neighbor as well the 3 biblical words the English Bible calls ‘Stranger’ are all brought into focus when we speak on this matter, and it is indissoluble inherited rights which make other peoples strangers to the common-wealth, and as such strangers are excluded from some protections afforded to the brothers of the citizenship of Israel, which are sin when commited one upon each other. As the philosophy of the Idea mentioned that most every people of the world have a custom against theft, it is just a mater of what theft is to that people; at Law, even in modern law, this aspect of persons is what divides stealing from authorized behavior (either authorized by law or by the peoples conplacency, it makes no difference, both set the standard of the people’s constitution at that given time).

For instance, as was spoken of in the prior message on the 7th Commandment as well as touched on in the 5th Commandment message in this compilation is the God ordained concept of Land possession, which in the Common-Wealth of Israel was YHWH owned, He is the land LORD and He has delegated stewardship or governance, dominion by tribal family possession:

Lev_25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is Mine;for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

Lev 25:24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.

Lev 25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.

Lev 25:26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;

Lev 25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.

Lev 25:28 But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubile: and in the jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.

Lev_25:34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.

Yet in our modern day the concept of Land is not possession in YHWH’s stead it is ‘private’ ownership, which in God’s vacancy through his ordained Law is more like Rent; for consider the modern culture and cultures of European descent: With out some form of payment required, the ruling principality and powers of government will come to your home, land or business and remove you and your family from it, and you will have no right that any court will recognize which will grant you possession with out payment of what that principality determines to be ‘due’.

In a society based upon God’s Law where land ownership is Almighty God’s and it is possessed as an inheritance by the Ethnic-nation of Israel, only a citizen of the Common-Wealth may claim his own ancestral land indefinitely that is perpetually with no intervention, by any ruler or any other person, none save the eviction by the Land LORD via war and dispossession, all other forms of a brother citizen or Israel being removed from his possession is theft. At such points when citizens of Israel are being removed, a clear line is drawn that a dyer need to repent before Almighty God is at hand, and a God ordained opposition to tyranny is of necessity.

So the culture most Europeans live under today would be tyrannical to their father’s who lived in the days of king Saul or perhaps Ahab, it is a matter of culture.

So it is, when speaking of stealing or theft in God’s Common Law it is defined by statute, YHWH, God of Israel is the determiner according to His Law of what theft is and is not, and as well what situations will determine the particular punishment to be executed by the Elders: Judges and Officers, the crime is to be judged according to Justice by the ordained diligent inquisition, and then as the well known Biblical Maxim teach:

Deu 19:21 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

Restitution

When contemplating Biblical stealing with in the Common-Wealth of Israel as Governed by the Common Law of the 8th Commandment, the understanding of Judgment for particular crimes being diverse one from the other becomes obvious as the Commandment’s violation is dealt with differently based upon the nature and object of the theft, as well as the circumstances surrounding it, yet one pervading absolution is consistent in judgment for this sin-crime between brother and brothers, neighbors and neighbors as well as Citizen and stranger, this is the idea of Restitution.

The term Restitution is in our legal language even today, Noah Webster defined it thus:

Restitution is made by restoring a specific thing taken away or lost.

2. The act of making good, or of giving an equivalent for any loss, damage or injury…

When we speak of restoring in the KJV we speak to the same point, as well.

In all cases Restitution is the final “act of making good”, and the determiner of what good is, is GOD.

Just Weights and Measures:

A Common Standard of Value

By the demand for Just Restitution the essentiality of equivalent value must arise, that is the equal value of a thing payed in money, yet only when allowed by the damaged party instead of the actual lose by similar representation, such as beast for beast, thus an estimation of value must at times be set as to it’s equivalent with in the common-wealth in the event settlement of Restitution may be had by an acceptable medium of exchange, and that set by God’s Sanctuary.

Beyond the days of Abraham Adam’s people have been using precious metals as this medium of exchange.

Gen 13:2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

Both precious and common metal weighed as Shekels (ShQuL), a Shekel is simply a determined weight current at a given instance or time, or as currency among a Common-Wealth; in the case of Israel’s “The Sanctuary’ is to assay the shekel or weight that is currency:

Lev_27:25 :

And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

This shekel was assayed in 3 precious metals, which until the 1900’s did not change in European societies.

Exo_25:3 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,

(copper: biblically known as Brass, not to be confused with the modern alloy of zinc and copper)

Bibically speaking the word for current money and Silver are one and the same, KeCeF. Silver was the common money of the common people, not withstanding the more valuable gold and less valuable copper coinage.

Thus the Law of God dictates from the commoner to the priest such law:

Lev_19:35 Ye shall not act unrighteously in judgment, in measures and weights and scales.

Lev 19:36 There shall be among you just balances and just weights and just liquid measure. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.

Lev 19:37 Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD.

AND

Deu_25:13 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.

Deu 25:14 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.

Deu 25:15 Thou shalt have a true and just weight, and a true and just measure, that thou mayest live long upon the land which the Lord thy God gives thee for an inheritance.

Deu 25:16 For every one that does this is an abomination to the Lord thy God, even every one that does injustice.

When the word ‘weight’ is used in Lev_19:35 it is translated from the Hebrew word M-ShQuL, and is specifically dealing with the aspect of Currency or Money, that is the medium of exchange with in the Common-Wealth of Israel.

In Speaking of money we speak of silver as the average standard of currency between men of that citizenship.

It is that in order for any commerce beside simple trade a valuation and estimation is of necessity to be had in any society which will govern upon Law, as to allow for brothers to stranger to deal Justly one with the other, as to determine fair dealings from stealing and theft. While any honest agreement for any thing, either in buying or selling or in the case of restitution, their is an estimation of value in a monetary sense as to aid Justice between in commerce or controversy.

Exo 21:18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:

Exo_21:19 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

As well

Exo 21:28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.

Exo 21:29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

Exo 21:30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.

Exo 21:31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.

 

Within the Common-Wealth of Israel the simple and intrinsic Common law of God couples Just measures and weights and scales by a monetary system using the ordained hard currency of Gold, Silver and Copper according to the precept of it’s Common purity, estimated and assayed by the Sanctuary, that is the same God ordained authority that over sees Judgment with in the Common-Wealth according to: Deu_17:9, Deu_19:17, they are the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days.

Therefore, by debasing the monetary system of the Common-Wealth with injustice or counterfeit coinage, as to adulter it’s purity commanded by precept, or to to attempt to replace hard money, by any person of any rank, is a debasement of the effectiveness of the justice of the Common-Law, and a robbery upon the Nation as a whole: such monetary debasement over turns the 1st commandment, as well, it is both an undercover attempt to man-steal the citizens of the Common-Wealth, along with a way to steal property and possessions of the Nation.

By the severity of the impact of debasing a hard and lawful money system is so severe that the use of any man made or fiat means, such as our modern use of Paper and or Electronic Bank transfers of contrived credits called money, would create a ‘monetary’ like system that would be controlled by the creators of the system, which would in effect control the holders and users of the contrived wealth. And thus the proverb which we are taught (1Ti_6:10) that the love of money is the root of all evil allows those who love to creator money to create all evil, as well as to get away with all evil with it; thus a government or banking system such as had today may easily escape the recourse of actual restitution even though that system may compensate an injured party, yet they do so with nothing, except for a currency they created out of thin air.

To allow the monetary system of a people to be controlled by a non-substance, such as paper and or electronic transfers, inevitably sets that society up for control by the selfish will of it’s creator…which is not YHWH God Almighty.

The Worst Forms of Stealing

are

Punished

by

DEATH

MAN-STEALING

Exo_21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

Deu_24:7 If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.

Within the Common-Wealth of Israel among the most heinous thefts a Citizen or Brother may commit is that of man-stealing.

Yet consider our modern day standard: In the matter of an arrest and detainment of an adult person, in some events the men or women are imprisoned and their freedom taken, in biblical language is man-stealing when the time In such Ward is not being used to determine the detained’s fate as to life or death.

“In-Ward”

Biblically, the status called “In-Ward” (Gen_40:3; Gen_40:7; Gen_41:10; Lev_24:12; Num_15:34) is the only time a Brother may be detained by Law, and it’s sole use it to determine life or death, with out such a status, especially when any form of price is attached to the persons release, it is Man-Stealing; the lawful examples found in Lev_24:12; (In one cercumstance we have a 1st generation Egyptian man born to an Israelite woman who blasphemed the Name of YHWH by cursing, by Deuteronomy 23:7-8 this man was not an Israelite nore would his child be for 2 more generations, thus In-Ward is used for the Stranger that is not of thy people), and in Num_15:34 (In-Ward is used upon a Citizen who broke the Sabbath wilfully, and was ass well put to daeth.)

Due to the prior understanding laid out from the prior commandments (found in this series) particularly that of the 5th Commandment pertaining to Parents, the absolute authority and ownership of children within the Common-Wealth resides in those children’s life givers, the contained in the generative Parents and lead in Headship by the Fathers. Thus, when another of any rank comes from the out side of this Righteous Paternal Headship and takes away another’s child with out absolute and evident consent of the Head holder, which may be had in hired or indentured servitude of ones Own Child, this act of taking a child with out consent, however, we now call Kid-Napping, but in Reality and according to YHWH God’s Law it is Man-Stealing as well.

Judiciary Judgment of Restitution by Elders

and

Summary Judgment by Land Owners

Exo_22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

Exo 22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.

Exo 22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, blood for him; he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

Exo 22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

KJV from Hebrew

Exo_22:2 And if the thief be found in the breach made by himself and be smitten and die, there shall not be blood shed for him.

Exo_22:3 But if the sun be risen upon him, he is guilty, he shall die instead; and if a thief have nothing, let him be sold in compensation for what he has stolen.

Brenton from LXX

In the case of this particular theft two words from the Greek and Hebrew must be reconciled and the then the aspects of verse 3 as well need applied in context.

במחתרת / B-Me-HeThR-Th literally saying: double prefix B-in & M-from or of. together meaning With-in or by it: in the act of +HeThR: Digging, Braking, Rowing: the Idea of Uncovering (see Jer_2:34) + Th: shalt be, they are (femanin construct) = English: they are uncovered (discovered) within. Leaving us with the plain Idea of what we call breaking and entering, tresspassing, or burglary, (while not being limited to night time activity) Yet night activity would automatically constitute undercover actions.

(Uses of the root word HeThRH2864: Exo_22:2; Job_24:16; Jer_2:34; Eze_8:8; Eze_12:5; Eze_12:7; Eze_12:12; Amo_9:2; Jon_1:13)

In the Greek LXX the word διορυγματι / Dio-Rugmati is used.

The word Dio or Dia G1223 ..In composition it retains the same general import: – after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause) . . . fore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby, therefore, X though, through (-out), to, wherefore, with (-in).

And Rugmati which may be seen in Titus 1:3 used with the prefix of κή / KeH

G2782 κήρυγμα kērugma: From G2784; a proclamation

Rugus may indicate the English: to make a ‘Ruckus’

Thus in a compound understanding the same Idea is conveyed, that is in the discovery or uncovering of one, in this case the Greek speaks to the aspect of alarm. ‘they be within ruckus’.

It is by such an understanding that the understanding is offered that when the worst form of thief is found in the act of theft with in ones possession, and that thief is harmed or killed there is no case for recourse for that thief, or for charges of murder against the defender of his possession for such an action against a thief, day or night who he is caught in the act. Yet, according to verse 3

Exo_22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, blood for him; he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

KJV

Exo 22:3 But if the sun be risen upon him, he is guilty, he shall die instead; and if a thief have nothing, let him be sold in compensation for what he has stolen.

Brenton -LXX

In this aspect of the verse it seem to indicate liability to the protector of his stuff and the restitution owed by the thief. The mention of the sun, is not to differentiate between day and night but indicate the length of time that had passed from the smiting and incident, therefore, consider this compound understanding ” If a thief is uncovered and he be smitten and die no one should bleed for the killing of the thief. But if the smitten thief live until another morning and be then killed by the own it is murder as the thief has been subdued, rather the caught thief is to pay restitution after the following morning by servitude, by the evaluation according 4 or 5 times the original theft or in equal value, as per verse 1 or by no less than 2 times according to Exo_22:4 And if the thing stolen be left and be in his hand alive, whether ox or sheep, he shall restore them two-fold.

Thus within the Common-Wealth of Israel, Governed by YHWH God’s Common Law, man committing undercover theft upon anther’s possessions would be non-existent and those with such tenancies would be swiftly culled from the flock or taught by the Justice of Restitution.

Before leaving off from the Idea of theft punished by Capital, the Justice of Almighty God speaks to the easily comprehensible maxims of His Perfect Law, as to deal with those thefts which would be interposed upon another and lead to the eventual or immediate death of the victim:

And so such Laws as well stand as the standard of Justice such as:

Exo_22:26-27 If thou at all take thy neighbour’s raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down: For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

Deu 24:6 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge: for he taketh a man’s life to pledge.

Setting the example of the 2nd Protos Commandment operating upon Charitable Love:

Lev_19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

Evasion of Compensation and Liability is Stealing

Exo 22:5 And if any one should feed down a field or a vineyard, and should send in his beast to feed down another field, he shall make compensation of his own field according to his produce; and if he shall have fed down the whole field, he shall pay for compensation the best of his own field and the best of his vineyard.

Exo 22:6 And if fire have gone forth and caught thorns, and should also set on fire threshing-floors or ears of corn or a field, he that kindled the fire shall make compensation.

Exo 22:7 And if any one give to his neighbour money or goods to keep, and they be stolen out of the man’s house, if the thief be found he shall repay double.

Exo 22:8 But if the thief be not found, the master of the house shall come forward before God, and shall swear that surely he has not wrought wickedly in regard of any part of his neighbour’s deposit,

Exo 22:9 according to every injury alleged, both concerning a calf, and an ass, and a sheep, and a garment, and every alleged loss, whatsoever in fact it may be, –the judgment of both shall proceed before God, and he that is convicted by God shall repay to his neighbour double.

Exo 22:10 And if any one give to his neighbour to keep a calf or sheep or any beast, and it be wounded or die or be taken, and no one know,

Exo 22:11 an oath of God shall be between both, each swearing that he has surely not at all been guilty in the matter of his neighbour’s deposit; and so his master shall hold him guiltless, and he shall not make compensation.

Exo 22:12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make compensation to the owner.

Exo 22:13 And if it be seized of beasts, he shall bring him to witness the prey, and he shall not make compensation.

Exo 22:14 And if any one borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be wounded or die or be carried away, and the owner of it be not with it, he shall make compensation.

Exo 22:15 But if the owner be with it, he shall not make compensation: but if it be a hired thing, there shall be a compensation to him instead of his hire.

Stealing Chastity

Exo 22:16 And if any one deceive a virgin that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her for a wife to himself.

Exo 22:17 And if her father positively refuse, and will not consent to give her to him for a wife, he shall pay compensation to her father according to the amount of the dowry of virgins.

Stealing by Usury

And if thou shouldest lend money to thy poor brother who is by thee,

Thou shalt not be hard upon him thou shalt not exact usury of him.

Exo_22:25

The word Usury is not a word used nowadays nearly as much as in the past, this most likely due to modern societies’ desire toward exacting usury as well as having it exacted upon them as to satiate all wants beyond need.

When one speaks of usury, we speak of the Idea of gain upon the principal or original sum payed by the debtor for Using another’s wealth. Today we call this Interest. Some in our modern day who would wish usury to only be what they have termed “excesive interest” oppose the strictness by which Nehemiah believed God to have demanded in His Common Law for Israel when he rebuked the nobles and ruler for exacting 1/100th % and to prove it’s understanding as no meaning less than 1 % the nobles and rulers response to the rebuke was, “We will restore them, and will require nothing of them…” (Neh_5:11-12)

No matter what the substance loaned is:

Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:

Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it. Deu 23:19-20

True Brotherly Love

When two citizens, yea brothers, are dealing with one and other, as to be in benefit for the Common- Wealth, that is to be Patriotic in the patriarchal sense, ones own people His Brethren are preferred as to establish the Kingdom by love and charity. The true citizen od the Common-Wealth of Israel is in fact brothers by flesh and bone and common parentage to his fellow citizen, it is by such a division between brothers, as to rule over one another with rigor (Lev_25:43) with in the lose of sight of the fear of God we divide our nation, it is as well by Not dividing our selves from all other peoples who are not our brothers, that the universal destruction of all peoples shall creep in as a thief, allowing the stranger to spoil the Common-Wealth which he is forbidden from entering.

Lev_25:35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger (GuR), or a sojourner (resident alien); that he may live with thee.

Lev 25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.

Lev 25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

Lev 25:39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:

Lev 25:40 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee, and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile:

Lev 25:41 And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return.

Lev 25:42 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.

For an example of the intertwining relationship theft has with usury, and usury against Ethnic homogeneity and the well being of a Nation, the context of Love for God and neighbor according to the Protos commandments of God’s Law found, Neh 5:1-19 is a strongly recommended study.

Stealing, Theft, Robbery and Usury no mater of what it is, or of what the statute evaluates it’s Restitution at is a destructive force when allowed in a society, especially a Biblical Society. Its violation as stated prior in prior messages strikes at the very heart of God’s Kingdom, which in fact strikes at the New Covenant. Though theft may be among the least crimes to be committed in society, it is among the most severe Sins to be allowed to go unpunished.

Thou Shalt NOT

Commit Adultery

Exodus 20:14/Deuteronomy 5:18

(I would like to start by asking those who have not heard the compilation on the 5th Commandment of honoring ones parents to first listen to that message before this one or shortly after, as the two commandments are tightly tied together with blue thread.)

In order to understand the aspects of this Commandment within the Common Law of God Adultery must first be defined, starting with the English definition of the word found in our English Bibles:

Noah Webster’s 1828 D. of A. E.

ADUL’TERY, n. [L. adulterium. See Adulterate.]

1. Violation of the marriage bed; a crime, or a civil injury, which introduces, or may introduce, into a family, a spurious offspring.

Adulterate

ADUL’TERATE, v.t. [L. adultero, from adulter, mixed, or an adulterer; ad and alter, other.]

To corrupt, debase, or make impure by an admixture of baser materials; as, to adulterate liquors, or the coin of a country.

ADUL’TERATE, v.i. To commit adultery. Obs.

ADUL’TERATE, a. Tainted with adultery; debased by foreign mixture.

The fact that Adultery and Adulteration are so closely related may come as a shock to those who use words found in the bible with out care to their meaning. The fact that one who commits Adultery in Reality is Adulterating purity as it that purity was either created and ordained to be by YHWH God.

Defining Biblical Adultery

Greek Adultery

G3431

μοιχεύω

moicheuō

moy-khyoo’-o

From G3432; to commit adultery: – commit adultery.

However this Greek word is a compound which which has become a verb made up a simple idea English speaking people can understand with little effort: the compound is made of

G3427 μοί /moi

The simpler form of G1698; to me: – I, me, mine, my.

and

From a derivation of χέω cheō from which Chaos which we may understand easily as well, chaos in the the Greek understanding is the idea of pouring a thing out of a channel or vacancy, it is as we think of it in disorder.

Thus we have :μοι Moi / My + χευσ /Chaos = My Chaos being used as a verb in moixoseis

Hebrew Adultery

NAP :

H5003: A primitive root; to commit adultery…

The Hebrew word translated into our English word Adultery is the word NAP;

NAP is complex but expressive as it is a contracted compound word, like the word king-dom (kings-dominion), letters are dropped out to create a new word, common in Hebrew and English. Hear we may see the root NAH / נאה, meaning ( H4998 ) be at home, be beautiful, become, be, blended with the word AP/ אף ( H637 ) meaning accession (used as an adverb or conjugation); also… , and thus meaning ‘home also’ or ‘beauty also’, it seems to represent the idea of one going beyond the pleasantness of family, as in all forms of Adultery this is what the man of woman of the Common-Wealth of Israel does, they go beyond the home life YHWH God has ordained, thus adulterating the society.

In the literal Hebrew scripture the wording is לאnot תנאף׃ shalt thou adulter’, in the commandment the word is prefixed with the Hebrew ת / Th meaning ‘thou shalt’ ‘shalt thou’ and the English translators took the liberty assure it’s understanding as law by adding the synonymous meaning of ‘commit’. The exact wording of Th-nap is only used used 3 times in the Hebrew Scriptures and of that three times two times in the very commandment found in Exo_20:14 and Deu_5:18 , it is from this third use from Jer_3:9 some context is found:

Jer_3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery (NAP-Eh) 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.

Jer 3:9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery (Th-NAP) with stones and with stocks.

In verse 8 the root word NAP is used in the word NAPEh which literally means ‘adultery of’ as may be seen in the Bishop’s bible, yet our actual word is seen in in 3:9 in “committed adultery”

This metaphoric verse shows the English definition given prior of Adultery and Adulteration, as the Adultery of whorish Israel was compared to a married woman, and the Adulteration what is done with trees and stones!

Adultery strikes at every aspect of Order

Adultery strikes at every aspect of ADaM’s purpose of creation

  • in the blessed mandate of dominion governance of multiplicity and fruitfulness and subdueance by replenishing (as described in the prior compilation on killing),

  • willful adultery as well hates God and neighbor and is reversive of the love commanded in the proto-commandments:

  • Adultery strikes at the 1st commandment in it’s willful violation, challenging God’s supreme sovereignty to dictate according to HIS Word sexual relations.

  • It strikes against the 2nd Commandment as it again sets ones self up or system of worship up which caters to ones self as the Idol of the heart to be bowed to,

  • It strikes against the 3rd Commandment by vainly taking YHWH God’s Name in vain by voiding the people of God’s calling,

  • It strikes against the 4th Commandment in that Holy worship is polluted by the actions and products of adultery,

  • It strikes against the the 5th Commandment, particularly, as it devalues or dishonors ones parentage it it’s very reproductive action or it’s lack thereof both of with will remove the people of God’s name from out of the Land,

  • It a strike against the 6th Commandment in that both the product of adulterous relations is illegitimate and should not have been created, nor are those which have committed to adulteration both have forfeit their lives before Almighty God, they have both killed them selves before the face of Almighty God and in certain cases the debased offspring they have made.

Historic look at Adultery

Consider Josephus a contemporary of our Lord’s time and how they viewed adultery:

1. AS for adultery, Moses forbade it entirely, as esteeming it a happy thing that men should be wise in the affairs of wedlock; and that it was profitable both to cities (society) and families (races) that children should be known to be genuine. He also abhorred men’s lying with their mothers, as one of the greatest crimes; and the like for lying with the father’s wife, and with aunts, and sisters, and sons’ wives, as all instances of abominable wickedness. He also forbade a man to lie with his wife when she was defiled by her natural purgation: and not to come near brute beasts; nor to approve of the lying with a male, which was to hunt after unlawful pleasures on account of beauty. To those who were guilty of such insolent behavior, he ordained death for their punishment. Antiq. Book 3, CH12:Vrs1

The question of what adultery is from a biblical and natural perspective in reality is a subject every Christian should wish to know, the 7th commandment is not only a prohibition of one who adulterates his neighbors wife by an illicit sexual union, but is the biblical word used to cover all sexual immorality including affairs of Breaking Wedlock, Miscegenation, Incest, Bestiality, and Homosex.

Hebrews 13:4

Marriage is Honourable in All,

and

The Bed Undefiled:

but

Whoremongers and Adulterers
God Will Judge.

Now that Adultery has been defined from the language and the context of scripture let us ask both Nature and Natures God for the Laws which forbids and dictate the committing and abhorrence of the practice and it’s effect on the common wealth.

As the focus of the Common Law of God regarding every commandment in the 10 is imperative on society, and at the introduction prior we have seen how the commandments hinge and rest at diverse and synonymous times one upon each other, with the Command against Adultery this is easily seen, even more so in reflection upon the prior discussion on the Common Law and their impacts in violation and adherence upon the Common-Wealth of Israel particularly when considering the first 5 commandments of God, especially the 5th, in honoring or valuing ones parents and thus parentage, the scope of Adultery as adulteration becomes all the more clear.

Call to mind the statement made in the compilation on the 5th Commandment of Honor thy Parents: “Adultery, fornication, and whoredom are ultimate devaluations or dishonor to ones parents and parentage, by allowance of an illegitimate offspring to grow in violation of the Law of God will destroy the Covenant upon which the Law is founded thereby dissolving the bond of all. “

Lev_20:21-22 says, Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.

All forms of adulteration are literally a curse and a strike against ones parentage, a dishonor that will cause the Land to spew us out as opposed to prolong our days. Thus in it’s entirety the adulteration of race, nation, tribe and family genealogy and by thus inheritance is in focus, notwithstanding that those natural adulteration which could never produce offspring are as well condemned due to it’s adulteration of natural affection.

Unlike the command on killing, there is no exception is given in the Scriptures for the Governing Authorities or any citizen to engage in Adultery; rather we find fornication and com Adultery which bring forth adulterated children being condemned in the lives of Kings and Priests (Ezra and Nehemiah).

Adultery is perhaps more murderous to a legitimate society that murder it self, as in the case of Adultery when committed and unpunished, when it is acknowledged by it’s spawn it offers a seed bed for the germination of bastard and fruitless affections towards YHWH God and HIS Law, in as much as the spawn of such a union will acknowledge that it’s life was never to be.

The Organic Laws

of

Creation will guide this study

of the

Common-Wealth’s Common Law On Adultery

In order to discuss this subject of Adultery 5 categories have been enumerated to isolate the content for discussion:

Miscegenation, Bestiality, Homosex, Incest, Breaking of Wedlock;

The Organic laws of Creation will guide this study as the bedrock of the Common-Wealth’s Common Law:

The Adultery of Miscegenation is first brought in to scope, that is the Adulteration of Genetic Purity, this is not only in the Adulteration of ADaM, but as well in the Adulteration of all kinds.

In the very beginning of creation as the Scripture relays it we find a simple statement, easy for the farmer, the husbandman, and the ethnologist to understand “After his kind or “After their kind”

Gen 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Gen 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. The Hebrew word MYN-Eh is see in both creation and replenishment after the flood in: Gen_1:11; Gen_1:12; Gen_1:21; Gen_1:24; Gen_1:25; Gen_6:20; Gen_7:14; Gen_8:19.

For our sakes, no doubt, this is written…

In the case of all creation their is an order after kind, and this is so with the living souls as well. As the wise and accepted apostle Paul dictates concerning the laws which pertain to beasts (1Co_9:9-10) “…Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written…” so the Law build upon this organic order of kind may be plainly known:

Lev_19:19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee. ( LXX-Gender-κατο-χευσεις / Kata xeusis, Kata: down, beside, against, and the same ending in the Greek word for Adultery moi-Xeusis / chaos)

Deu_22:9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.

Deu 22:10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.

Deu 22:11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

The law is direct and simple the mixing of kinds is not pleasing to GOD Almighty, from ADaM to beast, from beast to plant life YHWH God is desirous of HIS Creation to stay in order, an order which modern man is ever tampering with, from ADaM to bacteria.

As in the case of the prior laws the logic of God is clear on the reason why such is forbidden : “lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.”

ADaM

In Genesis 1:26 directly following the account of the people of ADaM are made according to their kind

“And God said, Let us make ADaM in our image, after our likeness…”, in this case we have both a physical and a Spiritual being being created after God’s kind, that is His image and likeness.

…”and let them have dominion”…ADaM was an ordained creation, made for Governance of the earth.

In the detailed account of Genesis 2, we are given a contextual understanding to found our Common Law there after, an Organic construct which shows the normality of ADaM’s Society:

Gen_2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Gen 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Gen 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Bestiality

Here plainly the simplicity of bestiality being abhorrent to the Creator is shown. That is that all formed life, and every living creature, formed also of the ground is not the same as the ADaM Kind and is not fit for him to take as a help mate (meet).

To this act of Adulteration the Law of God says:

Exo 22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

Lev 18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

Lev 20:15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.

Lev 20:16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Homosexuality among ADaM

Gen_1:27 So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Gen 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

Gen 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it…

This blessed mandate is the very command of male and female made in the likeness and image of God, are to be being fruitful and multiply according to their ADaM Kind, Male and female creating living souls like them selves, the natural procreation process was instituted from the time of Creation, and is in no way as some suppose a product of the fall, or of a curse, as only the multiplication of pain in Childbirth is listed among the curses NOT childbirth it self.

When the Hebrew term for male and female is examined the intrinsic nature of conjugation is evident, male (ZKR/ mark makers) and female (NQuBH, marked, or punctured) created he them.

The Common Law founded upon Normalcy was instituted thus:

Lev_18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Incest

By this same set of scriptures from Gen 1 and 2 the ordained marriage of unfamilial persons.

Incest is opposed in the nature of creation, as ADaM’s help meet was not his mother, sister or child in any form of natural generation, but was a special creation of Adam’s genetic flesh and bone but not related in the familial way. As Adam was created of the dust of the earth along with all other living creatures or souls, they are not permitted to be mates one to the other, nor indeed can they be in fact yet they are all of the family of dust but were created distinct, so Incest between mother, sister, and daughter is forbidden by the Law of God as a form of Adultery as well, supported in the construct of ADaM’s recieving of his mate by special generation created by the hand of Almighty God.

Lev 18:6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.

Though out Lev_18:1-30 and Lev_20:8-23 the likeness of YHWH God is seen on the matter, in the prohibiting of marriage to mother and father, sister or brother, son or daughter, aunt or uncle as well as other adulterous forms of engenderance. It is thus, by a study of the Hebrew ad Greek scriptures one may safley understand that ADaM was not an individual creation as one man but as a race or kind.

Thus all sexual immorality classified as adultery is able to be defended in the organic nature of creation both the pro and the con, that is the thou shalt and the thou shalt not in conjunction with those natural principals which govern generation.

Back to the Norm

Deu 23:17

There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel,

nor a whoremonger of the sons of Israel.

Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

The marital construct is imbued with this organic maxim of wedlock, that men of ADaM are to have wives taken from their own people, that is of their own bone and flesh, a command which follows threw out the Scriptural testament, offering the Christian the certainty of this Common Law forbidding Adultery and Adulteration of ones created kind.

Thus in the case of ADaM upon whom the focus of Scripture is upon, his creation mandate for blessing was contained in the command: “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion… (Gen_1:28, Gen_9:7)

It is in application of the simplicity of the knowledge found in the fruitfulness becoming defiled by Adulteration with other kinds the subject of what is call miscegenation is easily had in YHWH God’s creation of male and female of this particular kind of living creature or living soul called ADaM. The Hebrew word ADaM is a physiognomy term, that is it is descriptive of the visage of the kind called ADaM which as can we easily seen through out the Hebrew and English Scriptures has the meaning of a Ruddy or Blushing countenance, as any amateur bible student may see the meaning of Adam as meaning such in a concordance, or by looking up the word Hebrew word ‘ruddy’ in a KJV, one simple example of the use of the word ADaM is: Son_5:10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. ( צחH6703 white ואדוםH122 and ruddy)

Looking at the Proper Wedlock

Gen_2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Gen 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

As God says it is not good for the ADaM to be alone, and has made a way for ADaM to have an help mate. Gen_2:18 This prize and blessing of Wedlock to affect dominion should be Coveted and protected by the families involved in marriage making.

In the very idea of cleaving to ones wife, particularly as the Hebrew word for cleave is DBaQH1692 which is the word used to describe a literal over taking in pursuit (Gen_31:23), particularly inheritance land seen Num_36:7 in the idea of keeping ones own inheritance, the end goal of wedlock. Through out the scriptures DBaQ references the keeping, taking, pursuing of a thing thus in the Genesis of this mater the cleaving of a man to his wife of his own flesh and bone is the keeping of wedlock is a thing to be perused, protected and defended by this final conclusion. In the start of this pursuit it is attainable to see.

Beware of all whoredom… chiefly…

Cosider the book of Tobit as found in the Apocrypha

Tobit_4:12-13 Beware of all whoredom, my son, and chiefly take a wife of the seed of thy fathers, and take not a strange woman to wife, which is not of thy father’s tribe: for we are the children of the prophets, Noe, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: remember, my son, that our fathers from the beginning, even that they all married wives of their own kindred, and were blessed in their children, and their seed shall inherit the land. 13 Now therefore, my son, love thy brethren, and despise not in thy heart thy brethren, the sons and daughters of thy people, in not taking a wife of them

The Father YHWH is the headship holder and he is intimately engaged in helping his progeny find a help mate, this showing one of the ultimate safe guards against a poor marriage, an adulterous marriage , that parents are to be involved in the finding of spouses for their children.

Consider the lives of the patriarchs of our linage, consider Abraham heir of the dominion blessing as an inheritance:

Gen 24:2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:

Gen 24:3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:

Gen 24:4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.

We see as well our patriarchs actively looking with his headships guidance in finding an help meet (for all purposes) particularly in the act of reproduction or multiplying, as can be seen as well in Gen_1:27, Gen_2:20-21

Gen_27:46, Gen_28:1-2 …if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me? And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

Gen 28:2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother’s father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother’s brother.

Isaac and Rebecah see the miscegenation which has caused Esau’s fornication and he is active in the marital process of Jacob making the right choice.

Ample scripture shows that the forbidden lineages of peoples who had fallen from grace, that is that they had fallen from heirship of the covenant passed on from Adam to the Gentiles of the 12 tribes of Israel.

In the conquest of the Land this Statute exclaimed again:

In the books of the Law it reads:

Exo 34:15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;

Exo 34:16 And (if) thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

Deu 7:3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

Deu 7:4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

Mamzer?

The very act of Israel adulterating with other Kinds and forbidden lineages of people who had prior adulterated them selves created an illegitimate offspring YHWH God calls a MeMuRZ:

Deu 23:1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD. ( A man who has removed his ability ro be fruitful and multiply)

Deu 23:2 A bastard (Mamzer) shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.

Deu 23:3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:

Deu 23:4 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee…Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.

Deu 23:7 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land.

Deu 23:8 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the LORD in their third generation.

The list above is specific as to ban citizenship in the Common-Wealth to those who have damaged there ability to create heirs of the Ecclesia or church, that is the body of the common-wealth of Israel contained in it’s ethnic people. Second in the list, directly behind he who can have no offspring of those who may not hold citizenship in the Ecclasia or church is the Bastard or Mamzer. In Germanic toughed the word bastard holds the same meaning as mamzer, that is to bastardize or adulter. In the Hebrew the word MaMZuR is a word which literally speaks of one who is ‘ MeM / spotted + ZuR/ strange’ or ‘stranger marred’, which is a reference to the physiognomy, in other words ‘they don’t look right’, seen literally in some translations such as the Jerusalem Bible simply say “race mixed”.

As a compound word of MeM + ZuR = MMZR the below is explained:

H3971 מוּם מאוּם m’ûm mûmAs if passive participle from an unused root probably meaning to stain; a blemish (physical or moral): – blemish, blot, spot.

H2114 זוּר zûr A primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically (active participle) to commit adultery: – (come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, (e-) strange (-r, thing, woman).

To be a mamzer is simply to be a blemished / spotter or stained stranger and is the Hebrew used for a mongrel, while the word Mamzer may still be found in some dictionaries of the English language giving this very meaning.

H4464- ממזר / MMZR / MeMZuR From an unused root . to alienate; a mongrel, that is, born of a Jewish father and a heathen mother: – bastard.

The word Mamzer is still able to be found in dictionaries of the English language, as the word was once used by those who knew it’s meaning. As well the Ammonite and the Moabite are forever forbidden from entrance in to the Church of GOD, and the Edomite and Egyptian had full status as citizens after three generations. All of these in the list specifically reference female in marriage, this is known because of the strictness of Israelite inheritance laws, as all land ownership was solely held by literal children of Jacob, that is a member of one of the Tribes of Israel; as discussed in the 5th Commandment of the Common-Law, and this land could never be sold or lost by it’s original owners family Lev_25:1-55, thus this set of laws must define the offspring of a woman from a pure Israelite man.

Protective Measures

a

Blue print for Wedlock

The final provision in the Common Law for the Common-Wealth of Israel in the cleaving of men to their God-given wives, may be chiefly seen in the ultimate protection of Wedlock prior to and once had in marriage.

This is the Custom’s European Society hold and have that only in our more recent age has been striped away, statutes which aim at the preservation of genuine generations, according to Kind and Nation as well as Tribe and family. Briefly consider some of these protective measures:

Biblical wedlock or marriage is comprised of 3 facts between a male and a female which are all seated upon the prior organic and lawful foundation :

1st Permission of Headship, 2nd Dowry, 3rd Conjugal Consummation:

Biblically it may come as a shock to some, there is no priest, no preacher, no church, no temple required

Wedlock in a Biblical society is in the realm of civil law, while in a secular society it is considered ecclesiastical law; marriage is simply an exchange between families to affect the dominion mandate. Out side of wedlock no marriage may exist, once any of the elements enumerated are engaged in wedlock has initiated and the breaking thereof gains possibility as sin and or adultery.

For instance once betrothal, that is a promise of marriage in the future (we may call this engagement today) is given the same relative connection with any other than that person of promise is Adultery, it is Adultery in the same sense as we commonly understand it after a woman is fully married to a husband:

Deu_22:13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,

Deu 22:14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:

Deu 22:15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:

Deu 22:16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;

Deu 22:17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.

Deu 22:18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;

Deu 22:19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

Deu 22:20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:

Deu_22:21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

(see next aspect for 22)

Deu 22:23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

Deu 22:24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Yet in the event conjugation is enacted with out Parental consent or Dowry to establish the witness of betrothal:

Deu_22:28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

Deu 22:29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

Exo_22:16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

Exo_22:17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

Dowry in this sense is both the price of the bride as well as the punishment upon the father for having a loose daughter, punishment I say because no limit is placed upon a virtuous woman, her price is far above rubies. (Proverbs 31)

The fully and yet understood portion of Adultery that most, for now, in European Society still understand while little even among so called Christians practice is that of which is spoken of in the reserved verse of Deuternomy 22:22

Deu_22:22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

As well we have the hard to swallow but biblicaly accurate list of scriptures which speak to the same sentament is the Common-Wealth of Israel:

Lev_20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Christ’s reformation of Adultery?

For those who would oppose this righteous judgment of God, by imposing upon the Son of YHWH God Jesus Christ his opposition to this Judgment of the 7th Commandment in Joh_8:4-5,

Joh 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

Joh 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Joh 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

Joh 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

Joh 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Joh 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

Joh 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

Consider the wording of the Law, as in John 8 simply, only a supposed woman caught in the act of adultery was presented for judgment while the adulterer, was not present, a requirement for the Capitol punishment by Israel’s Government to have before judgment as seen plainly in the texts above. Thus, even in the event of the woman of John chapter 8 having truly committed adultery, the judgment was constrained until the requirements were satisfied, and only then may judgment with justice proceed, or else all those who punished the woman condemned them selves as violators of the 6th Commandment as unauthorized and or unexcepted killers. And this of course would be no different today as it would have been in the days of Moses.

In the final consideration on this compilation primary focus in the Organic principle of

Gen_2:24-25 …a man… shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh….naked…and not ashamed.

To this cleaving, unification and shameless principle the Christian marriage is weighed and judged. It is the male as Head of his God given family to protect his special marriage union at all costs, even as the apostle tells us:

Eph_5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.

Eph 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Genesis Roots of the Organic Law

of the

5th Commandment

HONORING

Our Blushing Fathers and Our Life Bearing Mothers

Will Bless the Earth YHWH Gives Us.

It is a studied opinion that the book of Genesis as we speak of it’s finished work today was originally able to be distinguished in it’s different parts by keeping track of the points where theses books are mentioned by use of the word of Generations.

The beginning of the synopsis of all creation thus:

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

The next section of the details of Generation is seen in

Gen 2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created

The text speaks plainly about the placement of Gen_2:5-6 as with in the 6th creation day as the prior verse tells us “in the DAY that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, AND every plant of the field before it was in the earth, AND every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, AND there was not a ADaM to till the ground.”

Seemingly it is not until ADaM awoke from his deep sleep that the 7th day occurs, as all creative function plainly attributed to the 6th day creation of all souls or creatures occurs, this including ADaM among them.

With in the out line or synopsis of Genesis 1 let us reflect upon the details of YHWH God’s reasoning as expressed to why He purposed to Generate or Create the race of ADaM upon the Earth:

1st To be a Father: when God speaks of Adam he says Let us make ADaM in our own Image, after our Likeness a phrase which is Echoed through out the scripture when speaking of Men bearing sons as plainly seen in the birth of Adam the patriarchs son Seth whom he begat in his own likeness, after his image… Gen_5:3

2nd The Father sought to give the son an inheritance which he created with his own hands and had worked for as seen in the statement “Let them have dominion..” over his creation

3rd the Father sought to bless His children for maintaining the order of fruitfulness and multiplicity as the means by which ADaM would subdue the earth.

These are the governing Organic principles of why ADaM is on the earth, and they are dictated by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in this order and according to this precise wording. All relevance to any son of man or correctly son of ADaM to his purpose in life is contained in this small section of Holy writ, the very Genesis of God’s Law, that is why I call it Organic. It is the most elementary of reasons for every Law and Word God has ever given on any particular subject mentioned by God Almighty and every intention of the heart or mind of man.

When dealing with the race of men called ADaM it is of necessity to remember the book that has taught and continues to reveal the History of this race and the specific man named ADaM, as all other places in the bible Genesis 1:26 is a selection from among the living creatures or also translated in English living souls: In Hebrew both term are NePeSh HeYEh, which simply refers to a Breathing Life, the term is applied to all creatures that breath and live, including men, which when dealing with men our translators chose to use the term living soul. It is thus sustained that in reflection now upon the aspects of ADaM’s Genesis as further specified in the detail of Gen_2:7-15 the specific selection YHWH God has made in His creation of Living Souls, and as to who he will name His children, after His Likeness and after His Image, a likeness and Image which can not mearly be reduced to sight and senses, but must also encompass Spiritual as it is evident that God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Joh_4:24″

Yet in Gen_2:16 the LXX clearly helps us understand the Hebrew and English as it uses the name Adam distinctly for the first time. This fact is used as indication of where the individual who has the name Adam is chosen out of the created race of ADaM (Eh’ADaM). It is important to keep focused, as Adam was created as head of the people, and it is he who was the recorded progenitor of the Paternal line of our Lord and Savior. This fact of selection is important as well as it explains who Adam’s children married as to not violate the Eternal law’s which prohibit incest (Lev_18:1-17, Lev_19:9-24), which is due to this lack of information the normal explanation of Adam’s procreation. 

Below is a list where the LXX shows the named man Adam distinct from his race:

Gen_2:16, 2:19, 2:20, 2:21, 2:22, 2:23, 2:25, 3:8, 3:9, 3:12, 3:17; 3:20, 3:21, 3:22, 3:24, 4:1, 4:25, 5:1, 5:2, 5:3, 5:4, 5:5; Deu_32:8; 1Chr1:1; Tob_8:6; Sir_40:1, 49:16.

The next portion of the Written record that was added to the Book of Genesis in ancient times as ADaM’s people recorded their History is then found in:

Gen_5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created Adam, in the likeness of God made he him;

Gen 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

and Beyond we may continue to see the rightly called Compilation Book of Genesis as the Bible’s Family history records, the Genealogy books. the next added portions of the ancient records are seen in the following as specific placements of God’s selection upon a particular chosen person or people:

Gen_6:9 :Noah;

Gen_10:1 :The sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth;

Gen_11:10 :Shem;

Gen_11:27 :Terah;

Gen_25:12 :Ishmael;

Gen_25:19 : Isaac;

Gen_36:1 :Esau;

Gen_37:2 :Jacob.

Yet undoubtedly as well the circular poetry of Almighty God can in the future manifestation of the heir and son of God, Jesus Christ must here be praised, He, the son of man which is literally the son of ADaM, Mat 16:13, who took on the seed of Abraham Heb_2:16, the son of David Joh_7:42. Thus the book of Mathew has it’s literal name as: The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Mat_1:1 who’s genealogy is traced back in the Book of Luke to Adam the Son of God Luk_3:38.

Thus the book we rightly call the book of Genesis according to it’s Greek name is as we understand it in English the Book of Generations or Origins, thus when we speak of the 5th Commandment which commands the honoring that is valuing of our Fathers and Mothers we are ultimately forced to look at our Genesis, generations and origins.

Yes, ultimately the Bible is a book of a chosen seed, and the focus from Genesis to revelation is upon the Genealogy of the Man descended from the line of Adam Jesu(s) Christ the son of man that is the son of Adam and the son of God. Yet in the periphery of this focus upon the seed destine to come to crush the head of sin contained in selfish attributes of the serpents deception upon the self of the Adam who first sought to be a god like YHWH God judging good and evil, with in this context we find the kindred of the seed to come, that is his brothers by his Father YHWH and his fathers and mothers according to the flesh by being the son of Adam as well.

Now let us reflect back upon who this selection is, what is the likeness and Image of Christ’s brothers and fathers.

The Name ADaM is descriptive in this way is a term of the physiognomy of our Parents found in Gen 1, 2,3. Like all racial terms used unto this day, the name ADaM is descriptive of the likeness and Image of the biblical people mentioned from Genesis to present day. This word, as well according to ancient customs as well modern legal language encompasses the legal construct of what persons we reference when speaking of “man and men”, through out the Hebrew Bible when speaking of the race of Adam. for those who use a Stong’s Concordance this take a look at Strong’s # H119, H120, H121, H122, H123, H124, H125, H127, H132 and a biblical word search in your KJV for the word ‘Ruddy’ will reveal 1Sa_16:12; 1Sa_17:42; Son_5:10; Lam_4:7 all Hebrew words are variations of the word ADaM. And for extra consideration the same Hebrew word meaning Ruddy is as well used to describe young King David the 28th grandfather of our Lord, this word was as well used to describe Esau at the time of his birth…thus Esau and David king of Israel were both of the Ruddy or Blushing variety of man kind.

When we consider the honor to be bestowed upon our Blushing Fathers in the scope of the 5th Commandment, let us draw some important connections

In Gen_1:26 ADaM was given a dominion in their blessed state. In the 5th Commandment we are told to honor our father and mother that our days may be prolonged in the Land or Earth… The word Land or Earth is in Hebrew called ADaMEh , this is of course so in Genesis as well when speaking of the earth ADaM was to be taken from as well as to till ADaM is the root word of the word ADaMEh the word for ‘land’ or ‘earth’ that is the soil aspect of the land or earth.

This peotry recounts the intrinsic connection ADaM’s creation was to have with the Earth or ADaMEh, as the root of the word Earth is ADaM and Not ADaM from the Earth, thus we may clearly see that the Earth was named with ADaM’s Governance of it in the mind of God, just as we see A-DaM rooted in the word DaM, which is Red/Blood from whence the term ADaM is derived. As many living creatures bleed it is acknowledged ADaM was not named due to this special feature, but rather as already shown, due to His physiognomy Ruddy or Blushing quality special to His likeness and his image which if reproduced according to the Genesis order “after his kind”, will multiply ADaM People.

We have also to mention our Life Bearing mothers of this same ADaM people.

Of the curse upon the Females and Males of ADaM as found in Gen 3,

A curse which was also the promise of the seed of a woman which would crush the head of sin,

Consider:

Gen_3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Gen_3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ADaMEh for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life…

Gen_3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ADaMEh; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Gen_3:20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

It has as well been said that the phrase above has been ascribed to EVE due her being the mother of all races of people. Yet the text plainly dose not say this, rather we read a very direct reference to Gen_3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

The mother Eve was to be life of what was to be the Life who was to be the Light of the world, The Light of Men (ADaM) and the fulfillment of the prophecy upon the serpent’s head. This life can be traced throughout the genealogy of Israel and particularly to Christ from the time of this statement: Gen_27:46, Rth_4:15

The Book is inescapably a book of selection, the selection of a chosen people from out of other people, of genes from out of genes. It is this first selection that that will be focused upon to call upon the organic nature and genesis roots of the 5th Commandment.

A Concept that while it is implied into the Hebrew thought, the Greeks and Persian’s spoke of more plainly as we do today, that is referring to ones Genetic make up as one’s Blood, in the Biblical Hebrew thought physiognomy of flesh and bone was the way kindred connection was communicated,KJV this is seen in Gen_2:23; Gen_29:14; Jdg_9:2; 2Sa_5:1; 2Sa_19:13; 1Ch_11:1. And when specifying ADaM people this is even more so true in the knowledge of the usage of the word ADaM throughout the Hebrew Scriptures as a word which literally references the Blushing or Ruddy complexion of the Kindred called by that name, and given the dominion blessing mandate.

Gen 1:27 So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Thus when we speak of the Genesis Law of the 5th Commandment the concept of the nature of Blood and Land are irrseperable, a Concept which focuses upon the Kindred of ADaM as found in the people of Israel, yet is as Organic in nature that all peoples, and creatures follow this same patern by meer nature, that is namely that a creature which is bound to an environment due to it’s parentage will covet that Land of Nativity.

Gen_4:10 …The voice of thy brother’s blood(DaMY) crieth unto me from the ground ADaMEh.

Not only is the beauty of Hebrew poetry here seen in the words above described but the connection to the life Blood or DaM of ADaM crying from the ADaMEh is as well seen, a situation between brothers which in it’s action dishonors father and Mother.

Gen_9:6 Whoso sheddeth man’s (ADaM’s) blood (DaM), by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

Thus the very preservation of the blood is as well a preseservation of the union made between parents of a Child, the life which resides in his or her individual blood is a testament of the life made by the union of flesh and bone seen in the Genesis Command:

Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Considering the English KJV bible, notice Paul’s 5th Commandment admonition of

Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Eph 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

Eph 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)

Eph 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

Eph 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

The Greek construct is as well found in the Septuagint translation of the portion of Paul’s epistle quoting Ex 20:12’s 5th commandment, the word ‘Earth’ is seen in place of the word ‘Land’ found in the KJV of the Law. Both the words, land and Earth are often translated from the same Hebrew word ADaMEh, which specifically references the soil or the dust of the Earth (ARTz), the farm land particularly connected with the wealth of the dweller by it’s agricultural value. Thus, while the commandemnt given by Moses is focusing upon the Land of Israel, the literal soil given to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and further conquered by the Children of Israel by dispossesion of the Caananite, Perrezite, and other mentioned peoples, this Command is by no means limited to the Land of Israel as the border and boundries of blessing, as seen in Paul’s admonition. Rather this level of the tarrafirma, the soil called in Hebrew ADaMEh was named after it’s root word and inheiritor ADaM, who was the the creature of dominion seen in Gen_1:25-27 and Gen_2:5-6.

A COMMON LAW FOR A COMMON-WEALTH

Honour thy father and thy mother:

that thy days may be long upon the land

which the LORD YHWH thy God giveth thee.

Exodus 20:12

Honour thy father and thy mother,

as the LORD YHWH thy God hath commanded thee;

that thy days may be prolonged,

and that it may go well with thee,

in the land which the LORD YHWH thy God giveth thee.

Deuteronomy 5:16

The word Honor should hereafter in this contemplation be understood for it’s Hebrew and Greek understanding of “heaviness”, that is “weightiness” Just as it pertains to precious metal, thus the Idea of Honor or Esteem is the Idea of literal value or worth. The Commandment is forwarding the Child of Israel to Value his Father and Mother as wealth.

The subject of the 5th Commandment is likened unto all the commandments focused upon thus far, it is a key sentiment to summarize the whole of the subject, thus by neglect of the Honor due parents and parentage the Law of God is as well devalued.

Just as the prior sentiment conveyed in the 4th Commandment regarding the Sabbath day beside the 6 days of work, the whole focus of the whole of the Common-wealth’s practice of Time keeping is observed, so in this way the 5th Commandment regarding the Honor of ones parents will bring into focus the Nation’s Origins, from one’s father and mother throughout the genealogical make up of one’s Ethnic or National people, even to one’s own Kindred Race derived from their first father and mother.

Patrio-tism

Father – ism

In our modern day this Commandment of Almighty God has lost it’s value; The evidence of that loss is seen in the countries or lands which our Nation once occupied, lands which our European ancestors once held by Right of Blood, Sweat, and Tears shed for it as proof of their God given claim. When considering the Right of land ownership by Ethnic descent from a Biblical Reality, it must be acknowledged that all lands settled by any people of any race or species of creature is taken and held by blood, sweat and tears, Nature does witness to this fact, and the biblical testimony to the Children of Israel is no different.

Even the founders of the united states of America spoke in a form of dualism to this point, dualism is said because all of the many references to the duty of the progeny of the children of the revolution stands as a warning and admonition no matter what side of the constitution one is on such as the words of Thomas Jefferson who made the truistic statement that ” The tree of liberty must be renewed time an again by the blood of patriots and tyrants…”; a patriot by exact definition of it’s Latin: patria, one’s father’s country, form pater which is father in Latin, this is Biblical Patriotism, Patriarchal Patriotism, the honor of one’s father and mother is the foundation of the National family unit with in a geographical border or boundary of Land or Lands, the family is lead by the God given headship of the Man who is the Father as seen in Gen_1:26-28, Gen_2:21-25, every law which shall be covered hereafter on Government order, Num_30:1-16. The paternal order is the God ordained order of Family Government, even in reference Parents we testifies to the pair which brings forth offspring, a word which is devalued by any definition beyond the natural fact it carries, that of the Patriarchal quality of the parentage of a family, tribe, Nation and Race of Biblical Origin.

Furthermore, when speaking of a Nation and Country the two are often times confused as one and the same, yet they refer to two adjoined but different aspects of the collective common-wealth, both aspects are channeled into the 5th Commandment: The Nation which is the aspect of common-origin and The Country is the aspect of a common home land. Thus when we speak of a country we speak of land mass and borders not the nation of a common origin. The 5th Commandment covers both in it’s primary sentiment of the Nation from ones individual parents to ones parentage, and also the giving of blessings of Honor towards ones parentage as the prolonged dwelling in the land given to that Nation.

Yet the reward of honoring and fearing ones father and mother is called Inheritance, in the Hebrew the word is Y’RaSH and M’URaSH as far as the idea of possession of inherited traits, which is more or less the idea of Rights, legal Rights inherited from father to son as citizens, members of the common-wealth.

Consider:

Deu 33:4 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.

While the Land inheritance is generally represented by the word NHeLEh.

Num_33:53 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.

Num 33:54 And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families: and to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man’s inheritance shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers ye shall inherit.

Num 33:55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.

Thus, Both Land inheritance and Covenantal Inheritance are inherent in the Paternal Honor .

By ignorant or willful disregard of this Commandment both the Nation and the Land will be lost, the two are invariably linked to the unity of every individual family doing so together as to form a Common-wealth.

With all this in mind consider the Greek LXX of Leviticus 19:3, “Let each one his father and his mother fear” the word fear is translated from a word rooted ina commonly understood word in our English speech, Phobia; in our insane and unGodly age in which we live the doctors of the so called psyche would call this a parentaphobia, the idea of being afraid of ones parents, yet this very heart and mind set should be a soul disposition of fear towards ones parents as a Godly fear. Every child of Godly parents should be afraid of the displeasure his parents will have in them, and thus be a feared that they them selves will dishonor their parents before the face of God almighty. A fear which I wish to punctuate by the end of this compilation.

Infractions upon the Honor

of the 5th Commandment

The first infraction: Physical Abuse

Exo_21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

This law prohibiting without exception the physical harm done to ones parents, as a capitol offence, a law which is not meant to be symbolic, and due to it’s simplistic nature it encompassed all forms of physical abuse done to ones parentage: grandparents, elders and those of the physical family in authority by mear age:

Lev_19:32 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.

This portion of Common Law helps us ascertain the scope of Honor as reaching further than one first father or mother, but unto his grandparents and beyond. It establishes also the Honor that should be had for any gray haired old man as a honorable member of a biblical patriarchal society, when indeed he is such, as one who should never be abused. The Idea of rising up is that which is accredited to kings and rulers, one we are still un-accustomed to understand in the West but perhaps not practice, the rising also carries with it the implication of support or establish, that is help an old man, and also establish the ruling elder as well, it is the onus of the young men to be the strong arm of the wise old man and to keep him in power, for all the young become old.

The next infraction

Exo 21:17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.

Before losing the thoughts of the Law and it’s greater focus just mentioned in the last infraction on Lev_19:32, consider not only one’s first Father and Mother but that of family rulers of Elders which helps support the God given authority by squarely seating it upon the 5th Commandment:

As mentioned prior in part 1 of this series on the 1st and 2nd commandment, the judges of Israel and of the Church / Ekklasia are to be comprised of literal Elders or Old men of literal Families as shown in Exo_18:25-26 Exo_18:25-26, Deu_1:9-18, Num_1:1-54, Num_11:14-25.

Exo_22:28 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people., is by the law of Exo_21:17, we may see the correlation to this law as being integral one to the other. As mentioned concerning the 1st and 2nd Commandment of God’s Common Law: the word “god” in this text references YHWH GOD given authority to the Elder judges and rulers of THY PEOPLE, by rule of God’s Law. It should not be missed that in the KJV the word translated ‘revile’ of Exo_22:28 and ‘curse’ of Exo_21:17 are the same Hebrew,, both are ‘QuLL’ a word which signifies the opposite of the honor or value of the Commandment, as well this stands true in the Greek LXX text pertaining to the word Curse from Kako-Logon – G2551 ̄

From a compound of:

G2556 -Kako: bad, evil, wicked

and

G3056– Logos: words

literally “speak evil of”

.

The value or Honor intrinsically placed by Nature and natures God, YHWH upon the family order are preserved by these Common Laws which has as it’s preservation the the security of dwelling in the Land of inhabitants by the Blessing inherent to law’s defined particular precepts, statutes, as well as Judgments against this sin.

The support of the families leaning one upon the other will create a Nation, a standing Nation will create a protected Country border, a Land blessed by the prolonged days of the inhabitants who dwell upon it in family order keeping a common Calendar:

Ye shall be holy:

for I YHWH your God am holy.

Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father,

and keep my sabbaths:

I am YHWH your God.

Lev_19:2-3

The calendar Sabbath of the LORD God of the Commonwealth, ordains and offers times of commanded family worship: Weekly, Monthly, Tri-yearly, and yearly worship times on which the Parents of Godly homes are listened to according the holy scriptures, the children are instructed by their elder fathers and mothers to establish this law in a symbiotic maintenance: the sabbath and all commanded festivals of scripture are family, kindred tribal maintenance tools; beyond it contains the Ordained time of National, Tribal and Family appointment of Elders to the position of judges and officers among the people, thus linking the Calendric system devised by Almighty YHWH as the time established for the commonwealth’s electoral conventions:

Deu_16:16-20 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God … in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: …Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.

That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

The Christ and the 5th Commandment

The most simple sin specified in the scripture concerning the 5th Commandment our Lord Christ forwards as a rebuke to the ruling Officers called Scribes in His day. As in the modern day these men in civic authority thought God’s Law was not Spiritually important enough to keep the letter of the law, thus they imposed by symantical interpretation another understanding of the Commandment’s and it’s precepts, a situation concerning the 5th Commandment which undoubtedly caused the eventual removal of the remnant of Judah from Judea.

Consider:

Mat_15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

Mat 15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honour not his father or his mother, Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

Mat 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Exo_21:17;

Lev_20:9 …his blood shall be upon him.

The poetic semantics are not easily seen by the English reader: the Idea of the value of a monetary gift on Parents seemingly payed to the Temple treasury was in replacement for true value of Honor found in life actions and words towards one’s parents, thus this unlawful tradition which is a semantical approach to the literal commandment makes the Realistic Commandment which is Truly Spiritual given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit of God void. It becomes void by cutting off the judgment from the commandment to replace it with a man made interpretation by the pseudo-letter. In this lesson Christ condemns the idea of replacing the actual Commandment of Law, to the end that is will void God’s Common Law; In modern terms, the governing State has assumed the right to redefine the value of parents to nothing more than a fine, a gift to blind the eyes and pervert the justice of God’s Law by use of the Temple’s State power over the judicial Elders, thus circularly destroying it’s self.

We in our modern societies of European descent find our selves in a worse position than even the Judean’s of the time of Christ, as the cursing of our progenitors has no back lash at all, not even a fine; yet the power base which has replaced the functional honor of the father and mother may easily be comprehended when one finds the idol in society that is unable to be cursed, as simple way evaluate a sociological position.

What is Cursing one’s Father or Mother?

As serious as a sin crime as is mentioned above according the Common Law of God , a word must be given upon understanding the nature of this infraction.

The word Curse above is Kako-logos as describes above. Kako is the general word for ‘bad things’, yet the understanding of ‘Curse’ is in focus.

While the simple understanding of bad or evil speech about one’s parents is simple enough to understand, they are words that cause ones parent to be afflicted by their bad words, either to them or others if the word returns to their ears. As well the simplicity of the Paternal nature of the family must be encapsulated in this sentiment as they are words that a child may use to afflict ones Parents, thus reversing the role by some form of negative control to in-place the words of Isaiah’s curse:

Isa_3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

Isa 3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

Yet this Curse must be understood in a strict biblical standpoint which must not be reversed as to allow an ignorant, selfish or wicked parent to silence the child who speaks the gospel which will naturally oppose any sinner in cluding sinful parents.

We have ample Scripture to show that the confession of Christ in our life will create variance even with ones own parents and family, by recourse, the denial of the life of Christ in us to disuad the varance between the Christian and his natural family is in fact a denial of Christ:

Mat_10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Mat 10:36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

Mat 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Mat 10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

Christ’s admonition is from Mic_7:6, which is in-turn is a admonition from the Law of Deu_13:6-10, this Christ based or anointed based life is seen in Gideon in Jdg_6:1-32, when the confession of Gideon’s anointing caused him to hew down his father’s baal grove and throw over baal’s alter to set an example, yet Gideon did not speak evil of his parentage, yet his actions and words could be skued by a wicked father to be a form of rebellion. As well a good example may be had in the life of Johnathan son of King Saul, as he was under his wicked father who was pursuing innocent David, Johnathan did not curse his father but did as David did entreat and hinder his godless actions to the benefit of righteousness.

The speech of cursing or speaking affliction on one’s parents is a sin crime which may not be committed no matter if the parents be actually wicked in their life’s actions, it ought not be done ever by one confessing YHWH’s name; no provisions or acceptance is granted for Cursing one’s parents even when one’s Father or Mother is wicked in the most vile way, rather we are to entreat or implore 1Ti_5:1 but never to speak evil words upon or to them, to afflict their person, yet it is important to remember that sin is always sin, and Christian’s are commanded to reprove such.

In our unfortunate day and age this seems to be hard on account of the treatment many children go through at the hand of ignorant, selfish, and ungodly parents, which often cause children to go astray. Yet consider, children in the time of the 40 years of wilderness wondering, when the parents sin caused the children to wander as a punishment was no different, even these Israelite’s forgot the sign of circumcision, the sign of Abraham’s Covenant, which was a selection among the son’s of Adam to give the dominion Mandate as stated in Gen_1:26-28.

Children Obey your parents…

From the Creation of Adam into the time of the patriarch’s then in the time of the Canaanite dispossession, as well seen in the Ethnic segregation of Ezra and Nehemiah’s, the ultimate goal of having Children is to give them an inheritance, in the case of the Covenants made with one’s Ethnic people or ones Racial mandate: to honor Father and Mother is a matter of genetic inheritance of Covenant and Land in a biblical society: among European Christians, this should be one and the same.

As seen in the Law of God through out: Adultery, fornication, and whoredom are ultimate devaluations or dishonor to ones parents and parentage, by allowance of an illegitimate offspring to grow in violation of the Law of God will destroy the Covenant upon which the Law is founded thereby dissolving the bond of all. It is worth consideration at this point that in the list of adulterous fornications of which the prior mentioned infraction of Lev_20:9 was mentioned among is ended by the antithetical statement in

Lev 20:21-22 they shall be childless. Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.

All forms of adulteration are literally a curse and a strike against ones parentage, a dishonor that will cause the Land to spew us out as opposed to prolong our days.

As it pertains to wise, generationally minded, Godly parents the Apostle Paul admonishes the children of these Christian families by the words he spoke to the Ephesian church, who mind you, did not live in the land of Judea or within the borders of old Israel but within Ephesus, a city of Asia Minor where the diaspora of Israel had settled in their Gentile-pagan state as Ephesians, he had admonished them thus:

Eph_6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

Eph 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)

Eph 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

Eph 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Consider an other Genesis example is given of a specific mention of an Honor toward parents in this paraphrase of Gen_27:46 – Gen_28:1-9

Gen 27:46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life (Eve) because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?

Gen 28:3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

Gen 28:4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, …Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;

Gen_28:7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram…

By continued reading the subject is substantiated in the actions of Esau who is called a fornicator for the strange wives he had taken against His parents honor in Heb_12:16, who by this action and other actions forfeit his birth-right, the inheritance from Adam to Isaac at that time, an inheritance which was to be the Christ’s.

Thus the act of not marrying into the forbidden linage of Canaan as per the dictates of YHWH God known by the Patriarchs, and seen in Israel’s laws trough out the Scripture was one of the first places where we may safely see the Obedience or Honor of one parents to the purpose of prolonged days upon the land in the sentiment of Ethnic purity, contained in the literal listening to ones parents on the matters of procreation, an action which of course replicates the Command it self.

The admonition in Gen 28:7 … Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan; And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother… is one which is as elementary cursing or striking ones mother and father who raised them from womb to adulthood, yet this infraction curses and strikes the at the root of ones ancestry, and obliterates the covenant by the adulteration of distinct Ethnic and racial groups which nature and natures God has deemed to be separate since creations time. The people of Canaan were the people who were being destroyed and spewed out of the ‘land of Canaan’ to be inhabited by God’s Chosen people Israel, who’s divided home inheritance was Aram and Haran in what we call Syria, the the place of Abraham’s father’s people. Yet the scripture tells us that the Gen_15:16 the iniquity of the Amorites became full at the time of Israel’s dispossession of Canaan’s land, iniquity that we may plainly in the Laws of Lev_20:1

In Biblical times the ultimate disregard of ones parents and parentage was one who has disgraced his father’s name and inheritance beyond forgiveness as see in the above portions of Genesis. By evident context the same holds true in the following grim and terrible fate that was possible for a stubborn and rebellious child, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

The Perfect Law of God Continues:

Deu_21:19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;

Deu 21:20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.

Deu 21:21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

It was the last check in the balance of National order for Children to Obey their parents in the Lord: If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Deu_21:18

In the KJV text the word “glutton” may help to confuse the context in uniting it with the prior obedience of Jacob verses Esau the fornicator. In other translations prior to the KJV the Hebrew word ZaLL H2151 was translated rioter, yet in the LXX the type of glutny and riotousness is more described, the APB translations has it as: Our son, this one resists persuasion, and he aggravates, not obeying our voice; he is fond of carousing drunk with wine. sumboloaopon wich literally means “sum+bolo” to union by thrusting (G4862 + G906) the word συμβολη seen as well translated coupling in many translations of the LXX

“coupling” through out Exo in the building of the temple in reference to action which sum-boleh describes.

(More evidence in the following verses to by comparison of the Greek construct in the LXX of Exo_26:4; Exo_26:5; Exo_26:10; Exo_28:27; Exo_28:32; Exo_36:11; Exo_36:12; Exo_36:17; Exo_39:17; Exo_39:20; Deu_21:20; Pro_23:20; Isa_23:18; Hos_4:12😉

In showing this point of dis-honor and dis-obedience to ones parents I wish to end off with the voice of Solomon, a man who according to our Biblical testimony had indeed a struggle with this very grave sin, his testimony as well helps to describe in other words the Hebrew word ZaLL as see in the prior Law of God:

Pro_23:19 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.

Pro 23:20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters (ZaLLH2151) of flesh:

Pro 23:21 For the drunkard and the glutton (ZaLLH2151) shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

Pro 23:22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.

Pro 23:23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

Pro 23:24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.

Pro 23:25 Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.

Pro 23:26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

Pro 23:27 For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

Pro 23:28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

Israel

A People who are not a People

A Foolish Nation being ground to powder

Compiled By JS Lowther

Did ye never read in the scriptures,

The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner:

this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:

but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Mat_21:42-44

In this time Israel exists as a Nation accourding to the promises of God spoken of throught the Law and the summarized by the prophet Jeremiah in Jer_31:35-36. That is the preserved of Israel as said by Isaiah are a Genos of people at a particular Gene-ration, the are the Gentiles, Nations, and or Ethnic people of focus in the exclusive New Covenant. As a Nation however, they lack one of the hallmark qualities all Nations posses: a Common culture or custom, a Common Law. Israel has truly become as the Curse in the Song of Moses warned because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.:

Deu_32:18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

Deu 32:19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

Deu 32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.

Deu_32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

This fact was prior spoken of 3 chapters prior of the portion we focused on in Deu_30:1-20 and Rom_10:1, as well this facet of Israel’s foolishness was also spoken of by Paul in Romans 10:19, which we covered in the introduction also, as Paul continued in his epilogue carried over from Chapter 9 which quoted the Song of Moses, via the prophet Hosea

Rom_9:25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

Rom 9:26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

This quote from Hos_1:9-10, Hos_2:23, is the key to understanding who the Gentiles of the New Testament focus are and how they dovetail in to the New Covenant according to Heb_8:8, and Jer_31:31.

(The Hebrew words used in Hosea as a name for the symbolicly disowned house of Israel is לא עמי LA-OMI H3818 (LA-Not+ OM-people+ I-my) was first referenced in the prior Song of Moses as בלא עם / B-With +LA-No + OM -People. Lo ammi is ‘not my people’ and with No People is one and the same entity, more easily seem in the Hebrew)And while for the last 2000 years the Blood of Christ has been offering a renewal of Covenant for this foolish nation, we in fulfillment of Paul’s epistle, Isaiah’s rebuke and Moses warning have been a disobedient and gainsaying people. A people who YHWH found who were not altogether seeking Him, and a people who He has manifest himself to who did not ask for him …THIS IS BECAUSE OF GOD’S LAW

The Stone of stumbling mentioned by Isaiah and forwarded again by Paul in Rom_9:32-33 Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone; In Moses’ song of the Rock which Israel forsook, in Isaiah’s time, and in the time of Paul Both the house of Judah and the House of Israel had stumbled, Judah at the Word made flesh and the diaspora od Israel at the Law, both of which was reconciled in the life of the Word made flesh, the Rock of Israel’s faith.

No matter what estimation you take: the Law and the King are a packaged deal. Either Jew or Gentile, raised in the Law or out of the Law, the stone of the New Covenant is the foundation of God’s Kingdom.

The two aspects of this one stone are undeniable in the Scripture and are more understood in the light of the knowledge of Joh_1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth…proclamation.

Isa_8:13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

Isa 8:14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Isa 8:15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

Isa 8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

Isa 8:17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

and why was it a stumbling?

Isa_28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Isa 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

Isa 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

Who among us of the seed of Israel are ready to stop stumbling at the rock of offense? who is ready to stop heaping the scriptures precepts and lines one upon another that they cause us to fall backwards, be broken, snared and taken, who is ready to stop making lies our refuge? And allow the blood of Israel’s Rock to disanul the Covenant of death, the law of Sin and death Paul referenced at the starting point of the Roman’s Epilogue Ive so ardently been hinging upon.

Tyndale Rodgers and Coverdale Trans says: Isa 28:13 the LORD shall answer their stubborness.(stubbournes) (Command that may be commanded, bid that may be bidden, forbid that may be forbidden, keep back that may be kept back, here a little, there a little.) That they may go forth, fall…

The two great threats to Christian Israel are the very two aspects and definitions of the stone of stumbling and the Rock of offense, that is Grace and Law, or stated by John Grace and Truth, truth which is easily seen in

Psa_119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

 

Our Grace in being forgiven of our sin stain, our covenant with sin and death, the law of sin and death undoubtedly is found in the Blood of Christ’s New Covenant:

Rom_5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Eph_2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

In being forgiven, in being made alive who do we yet stumble and fall? why are we yet broken?

Because we refuse to reconcile the foolishness of our Nation, we refuse to be God’s People, YHWH’s People and let him be our God as a Nation:

Deu 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

YHWH’s Law is the culture and custom missing from our Nation, from our Christian Nation who are rather foolish, unrighteous and at this time a People who are not a people, yet are a people who have such a rich, wise and righteous Culture available to them if they just simply would see the scriptural harmony of having there faith on Israels Rock:

The word of God made flesh, the rock who was smitten for us to forgive us and redeem us for smiting him.

NO KING BUT GOD’S KING, NO LAW BUT GOD’S LAW

And by this Introduction I hope to advance the reason why Israel needs redemption, by the blood of Christ through his grace; and why a redeemed people need God’s Law as it is the bed rock fondation of Kingdom.

Part 1

The Choice

Letter and Spirit

Death and Life

Evil and Good

Curse and Blessing

for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stones, was glorious…which glory was to be done away:

… the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 2 Corinthians 3:4-9

The concept taught by the apostle is a simple concept of Love, and it’s principle is the part of God’s Law which is generally unattached to Civil or Criminal Law of any given society, yet the concept or doctrine of Law it elementary as in any given culture their are those who love their societies rule of law, and truly have faith in the letter of every law. However, this doctrine should not be confused with the complexity of the Roman usage of ‘the spirit of the law’, which points to what the ‘true intention, or what was or is the actually safe guard of the law’; some use the Roman doctrine of ‘the spirit of the law’ as the color by with to hue God’s Law, this allows for violation of God’s law in it’s letter as to in some way maintain the greater good concept, or the more important intention of the law. With the Exception for the ensuence of the Love of YHWH’s God, there is is no other Spiritual doctrine of intent found in God’s Law and the keeping of it’s Letter, as Love is the intention of every commandment by the Laws Creator and should be the intent of it’s keepers:

…from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words. Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob. Deu_33:2-4

Joh 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

Deu 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

Deu 30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

In all cases we are asked to Love the Law in it’s Spirit, it’s intention of Love, that is Life and good, yet if we view the Law of God as only a letter written on stone or paper our heart is not in the right place, and we have proof that we are not party to the new covenant.

These two approaches are summarized in Paul’s statement in

Rom 7:10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.

Rom 7:11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

Rom 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

Rom 7:13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

Rom 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

The law insomuch, as it was given by the Spirit of YHWH God, can never be carnal or derived from flesh, the law of the living God in inherintly Spiritual, holy, just and good. It is man which is carnal flesh, which will natural die. In a civil and criminal application, the spiritual Judges must be men who are Spiritual, that is they Love God’s Law, yet the Israelite has two possitions towards the covenant Law, he may Love the law and be Spiritual, or he may hate the law by seeing it as just a Letter. Those prone to the Spirit will love God’s Law and Commandments and those prone to the flesh will never see the life ordained by the Law, the carnal will always look for the way to dis-annul the Letter, because it is the Letter which will kill them, either by literal death penalties or by repentance which will kill the flesh and the lust’s there by rendering them Spiritual, the flesh is fighting for it’s existence. Every Israelite stands at the threshold of God’s Law daily, and with ever choice we weigh in the balance of every choice, our estimation of the greatest commandment. which is all in all the same as the first of the 10 commandments.

As mentioned prior the first commandment is the operating law of all Common Law and the 2nd is linked to it at the nearest point. All violations of God’s Law are violations against the 1st commandment, even the summary of the 10 commandments given by Moses and forwarded by our Christ still are only violations of the first commandment:

Mar_12:31 The first (protos) of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. Deu 6:4

Mar 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Lev_19:18

in finnishing Christ adds that for one to know this :

Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.

As the proto Law is for Israel to Love YHWH with heart mind and soul, we know that the under lying Covenant is being founded upon is the New Covenant which offers to place the Law of YHWH in to the same place as this Law as whell as the whole law. It is thus, that one may never keep the law with out the enactment of the new covenant faith. The New Covenant offers the Israelite of the house of Israel and Judah acceptance through the blood of Christ into the Love relationship with YHWH’s Law.

The having of No other God’s and of not serving any other God, is the Loving of God and his services, and His worship. By the letter of the law one may conclude that even an atheist or perhaps an agnostic may as well follow this command by not serving or worshiping another God, yet by recourse one may only keep this Law by loving it, and thereby loving the whole of YHWH’s Commandments and Law.

Thus the loving of one’s neighbor, which have been itemized as Laws which deal with civil relations are as well manifestations of Loving YHWH God and keeping His first commandment and His second. As many strange god’s and laws of strange god’s allow the dis-love of one’s neighbor, and as well allow the worship of other god’s beside the primary god’s of the strange religion’s law; yet the Law of the LORD God YHWH is Jealous and particular to YHWH Alone. Thus, by keeping any one of the law’s of God, from the least to the greatest, in our estimation that is, we show our Love for God and His Law, and we exercise His righteousness and Holiness.

If we are truly party to the New Covenant than the Love of God’s law in our heart, mind and soul is present, that is the Spirit of the Law, a Spirit which even Loves the Letter of the Law, which by transgression which is sin brings forth death.

Thus from hence forth in this study all Laws covered will fold up into the first commandment which is phrased in the negative:

Thou shalt NOT have No other God’s…

Compiled by JS Lowther

Introduction message

Israel Identity

The Regathering of the Tribes of Jacob

The subject of Biblical Common Law or Torah is a concept that has been discussed by this ministry more than I have kept track of, and it is a subject that for me personally governs my thoughts and actions from day to day, I am of course falable and I am by no means claiming perfection, but I am claiming that in every instance of life it is my goal to weigh my actions by YHWH’s standards of what we call right and wrong, or more biblically what YHWH calls Good and Evil, Righteousness and wickedness, Obedience and sin, it is the defining principle that which offers blessing or curse in this world and in that which is to come.

The concept of Biblical reality that I speak on so often is a combative measure, to engage the enmity of the flesh which resides in many of the people who believe them selves to be christian today which claim a full gospel faith, or a trust in the entire word of God; I combat those because it is their hypocritical view that claims faith, trust or belief in the bible as the infallible word of God to men but deny, negate, and attempt to disprove vast portions of the scriptural testament, by their so called faith.

It is often times that church goers are the most staunch in opposition to one who proclaims the biblically realistic Gospel. Turn to Isaiah 52 to see the proclamation:

Isa 52:6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

Isa_52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

The Gospel Message is an immense message it is a message which tell’s YHWH’s people who are scattered through out the earth that their King Reigns!

It is a non diverse, non tolerant, non multicultural message!

The Truth of the Gospel is according to the Good news found in the scriptures that Israel’s God is KING, The father of Jesus the Christ Is the King of all the earth and no other! And as King, those of His Kingdom are governed by His Law. It is this law which tells the subjects of the Kingdom how to function, it tells them it’s awsome and deadly letter the punishment and judgment for sin and by it’s Loving Spirit the Benafit and Blessing offered by it’s perfection.

Yet in our day most so called Christians believe in a King which governs nothing but Spirit, intangible and un-realistic, a Kingdom only attainable in death ruled by a King who has no Law, but one which directly contradicts the very Spirit of the Person of God seen in the very first commandment believed to be abrogated by another gospel and another Jesus the son of a lawless God., which states clearly in the English IAM THE LORD THY GOD… THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GOD’S BEFORE ME! And proclaimed by the 2nd commandment which forbids any form worship or service in worship to a physical thing other than The LORD, by adding I THE LORD AM A JELOUS GOD. The term LORD GOD is synonymous with the Hebrew title name YHWH which literally means He That Is that is HE THAT IS GOD or as our English Bible puts it I AM THAT I AM.

This personality of God is Jealous and his very memorial name proclaims that he is Ever living and unchanging.

If some wish to believe in a God that changes and abrogates his own morality and law that is their prerogative, and untimely their soul…its a free will, you have the choose who you will serve.

As for me I will serve YHWH the best I can by obeying his Kingship by obeying His Law, and striving to attain salvation in this life and that which is to come by seeking his Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven, that is by ever means possible to affect a change on this world to proclaim THE LORD GOD as the King and GOD’s Law as the Only true Law, no matter where that leads me personally, or as a head of my family, no matter how hard the course is to follow this mountain is to be climbed by our beautiful feet of redemption shod with the preperation of the Gospel Eph_6:15.

Paul put this quote in to context in Roman where the focus of the message is no different that of the rest of the scripture, and particularly those of whom Christ came according to the New Covenant, the house of Israel and Judah according Heb_8:8 and Jer_31:31 where he continues is epalogue saying

Rom 10:1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

Rom 10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

Rom 10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

He going on to validate the fact that by Christ the So of God’s New Covenant made in his blood the end of the sin stain upon israel is able to be ended by the manifestation of Christ in being the end means of of the laws perfection. And continuing on in teaching the primary law in operation which establishes the New Covenant in Christ’s blood as found in

Deu_30:1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,

Deu 30:2 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;

Deu 30:3 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.

YHWH tells the Gentilized scattered Israelite that

Deu 30:10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

Deu 30:11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

And Paul concludes as with calling this section of God’s Perfect Law, a law which Paul says that if a man shall do those things he shall live by them THE WORD OF FAITH in saying:

Rom 10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

Rom 10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

And just as the proclamation of Isaiah was sent to the house of Israel and the Prophet Nahum sent to the house Judah who also proclaimed this Gospel in Nah_1:15

We are told in Rom 10:12 there is no difference between Judah and the Greek speaking dispersed house of Israel of whom Paul was writing to in Greek: for it is the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Rom_10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

In describing those spoken of by Moses, Isaiah, Nahum, and now Paul says:

Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Rom 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Hear Paul quotes the organic, and natural witness of the Heavens, which acts as the primary testament for those scattered people, Just as Jeremiah the prophet proclaimed in Jer_31:35 in summarizing the solemn feast of the Sabbath in Exodus 31 and mentioned by Nahum he says:

Psa 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Psa 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

Psa 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Psa 19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Psa 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

Psa 19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

Psa 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

Psa 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

Psa 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Psa 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Psa 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Psa 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Rom_10:19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.

Rom 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.

Rom 10:21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

And as well the prophet Nahum discribes a portion of that peace brought by the Gospel or Good tidings, when he as prophet to Judah as Isaiah was to Israel

The subject of Biblical Common Law or Torah is a concept that has been discussed by this ministry more than I have kept track of, and it is a subject that for me personally governs my thoughts and actions from day to day, I am of course falable and I am by no means claiming perfection, but I am claiming that in every instance of life it is my goal to weigh my actions by YHWH’s standards of what we call right and wrong, or more biblically what YHWH calls Good and Evil, Righteousness and wickedness, Obediance and sin, it is the defining principle that which offers blessing or curse in this world and in that which is to come.

The concept of Biblical reality that I speak on so often is a combatative measure, to engauge the enmity of the flesh which resides in many of the people who believe them selves to be christian today which claim a full gospel faith, or a trust in the entire word of God; I combat those because it is their hypocritical view that claims faith, trust or belief in the bible as the infalable word of God to men but deny, negate, and attempt to disprove vast portions of the scriptural testament, by their so called faith.

It is often times that church goers are the most staunch in opposition to one who proclaims the biblically realistic Gospel. Turn to Isaiah 52 to see the proclaimation:

Isa 52:6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

Isa_52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

The Gospel Message is an emense message it is a message which tell’s YHWH’s people who are scattered through out the earth that their King Reigns!

It is a non diverse, non tolerant, non multicultural message!

The Truth of the Gospel is accourding to the Good news found in the scriptures that Israel’s God is KING, The father of Jesus the Christ Is the King of all the earth and no other! And as King, those of His Kingdom are governed by His Law.

Yet in our day most so called christians believe in a King which governs nothing but Spirit, in tangable and un-realistic, a Kingdom only attainable in death ruled by a King who has no Law, but one which directly contradicts the very Spirit of the Person of God seen in the very first commandment believed to be abrogated by another gospel and another Jesus the son of a lawless God., which states clearly in the English IAM THE LORD THY GOD… THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GOD’S BEFORE ME! andproclaimed by the 2nd commandment which forbids any form worship or service in worship to a physical thing other than The LORD, by adding I THE LORD AM A JELOUS GOD. The term LORD GOD is synonomous with the Hebrew title name YHWH which litterally means He That Is that is HE THAT IS GOD or as our English Bible puts it I AM THAT I AM.

This personality of God is Jelous and his very memorial name proclaims that he is Ever living and unchanging.

If some wish to believe in a God that changes and abrogates his own morality and law that is their perogative, and ultimently their soul…its a free will, you have the choose who you will serve.

As for me I will serve YHWH the best I can by obeying his Kingship by obeying His Law, and striving to attain salvation in this life and that which is to come by seeking his Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven, that is by ever means posible to affect a change on this world to proclaim THE LORD GOD as the King and GOD’s Law as the Only true Law, no matter where that leads me personally, or as a head of my family, no matter how hard the course is to follow this mountian is to be climbed by our beautiful feet of redemption shod with the preperation of the Gospel Eph 6:15.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

And just as the proclamation of Isaiah was sent to the house of Israel and the Prophet Nahum sent to the house Judah who also proclaimed this Gospel in Nah_1:15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.

We are told in Rom 10:12 there is no difference between Judah and the Greek speaking dispersed house of Israel of whom Paul was writting to in Greek: for it is the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Rom_10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

In discribing those spoken of by Moses, Isaiah, Nahum, and now Paul says:

Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Rom 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Hear Paul quotes the organic, and natural witness of the Heavens, which acts as the primary testament for those scattered people, Just as Jeremiah the prophet proclaimed in Jer_31:35 in summerizing the solmn feast of the Sabbath in Exodus 31 and mentioned by Nahum he says

Psa 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Rom 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.

Rom 10:21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

The regathering of the Tribes of Jacob is the very first concept needed in understanding the Biblical Common Law, the Law of God, because with out the establishment of the Tribes of Israel, the Law has very little application in National reality.

Isa 49:3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

Isa 49:4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the LORD, and my work with my God.

Isa 49:5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.

Isa 49:6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

Isa 49:7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.

Isa 49:8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;

Isa 49:9 That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.

ReNEWed COVENANT Ministry

Lets start out in the Law:

Lev 25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

Lev 25:24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.

Lev 25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.

Rth 3:1 Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?

Rth 3:2 And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor.

Rth 3:3 Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.

Rth 3:4 And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.

Rth 3:5 And she said unto her, All that thou sayest unto me I will do.

Rth 3:6 And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her.

Rth_3:7 And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered Th-GaL H1540 his feet,Me-Ro-GaLThH4772, and laid her down.

The word for uncover in normal GaL-Eh H1540 it is here in the feminine form Th-GaL, as the word for redeem is GAL H1350, the words are indicative of each other. This is also the word used in Lev_18:6 and 20 when dealing with unlawful uncovering and is the general word for the action: L-GaLTh ללות / GaLEh גּלה 1540 to uncover. The action of Gal is not in the focus of uncovering or covering as the word used in verse 9 in the phrase “near kinsman” is again an also GAL, but the idea of the Hebrew logic is gathered up into the idea of ‘kinship covering’ and I believe may be best described by the Gaelic custom of Tartan most know of from Scotland, I don’t think its a surprise that the Gaul’s or Gaelic people, also called Gaults/ Celts or Kelts ware a skirt named after them called a Kilt made of their family banner called a Tartan. Having a name strikingly in resemblance to the Hebrew Word GaL, consider also the Hebrew word for the (Tribe) banner or standard is DGaL דגלH1714, Just as the Kilt (GaLT) Tartan is a banner of/ standard of a family , the cloth skirt which men wear in all functions of family life, from Birth to Marriage to Battle to Death, the covering they have is the banner of their GAeLic family, their Kinsmen, those who they by Rights may Redeem.

In the days of Ruth the language indicates the same idea as that which was used by the less ancient GauLs, it was an important part of Israelite society, for to uncover a woman you must be willing to covered her with your kindred family. Much like the depleting custom of a woman taking the husband’s sir name or last name was common to our more modern grandparents in 2017, the Idea of patriarchal headship is key to the Israelite cultural heritage, and the two concepts are one in the same.

The Laws found in the scripture on the uncovering of nakedness are regulation that promote healthy growth of Israelite Christian Culture, which is bound in the Logic of God’s Law and thus the Law of Headship by Patriarchy, which is where Fathers rule their families by the fear of God; this aspect of fear is as well seen in the accompanying language of the portion of the skirt or covering which is specified by Ruth, that is the KNaF or edge, border. As commanded in Deu_22:12 where the command is found to hem a ribbon or thread of blue for the remembrance of YHWH’s Law, the edge of the skirt of an Israelite man was to represent the Law of YHWH; Interestingly enough in Rth_2:12 …YHWH God of Israel, under whose wings (KNaF) thou art come to trust. Ruth’s Trust or Faith is seen in her Lawful actions and personality of virtue, and this symbolism in Ruth’s actions are just as virtuous as Ruth seeking her place of Redemption in Boaz’s right of redemption, undoubtedly, Boaz’s family skirt was hemmed by the perfect redemptive law of YHWH, a Tartan every man should want as his family banner.

A lesson in Hebrew GauLic

Kinsman/ Redeem: GAL or GaL

Right of Redemption: GALEh

Foot: R-GaL

Before the Feet (ankle/shin): MR-GaL

Standard / Banner D-GaL

Uncover: GaLEh / GaLTh

Rth_3:8 And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.

Rth_3:9 And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt (KNaF) over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.

Rth 3:10 And he said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.

Rth_3:11 And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman.

Rth 3:12 And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I.

There is a simply Godly truth that Boaz knew, and that, despite the passion, despite the offer, despite the allure, despite the fact that no one may have known what could happen on this intoxicated harvest night except Boaz and Ruth and the justification that Boaz may have used ‘that he would most likely have been the lawful Redeemer of Ruth and as such would have had no repercussions for his action if he were to cover Ruth with his skirt that night’.

Rather Boaz had the prescience of mind which Paul taught in

2Ti_2:5 that: if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

And that Law is found in this Numbers 27:

Num_27:8 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.

Num 27:9 And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.

Num 27:10 And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father’s brethren.

Num 27:11 And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses.

So it is that despite the temptation that may be easily seen in the Text, Boaz Passion for YHWH’s Law over rides his lust and even rational judgment which could have controlled him on the mater, a rational judgment which could have easily disregarded the Law and Word of YHWH.

Rth_3:13 Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman’s part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, as the LORD liveth: lie down until the morning.

THE PART OF THE KINSMAN / THE DUTY OF AN HUSBAND’S BROTHER

Deu_25:5 If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband’s brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband’s brother unto her.

Deu 25:6 And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put outH4229 MaHEh G1813 of Israel.

Deu 25:7 And if the man like not to take his brother’s wife, then let his brother’s wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband’s brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband’s brother.

Deu 25:8 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;

Deu 25:9 Then shall his brother’s wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother’s house.

Deu 25:10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.

Rth_3:14 And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor.

Rth 3:15 Also he said, Bring the vail that thou hast upon thee, and hold it. And when she held it, he measured six measures of barley, and laid it on her: and she went into the city.

Rth 3:16 And when she came to her mother in law, she said, Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.

Rth 3:17 And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law.

Rth 3:18 Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.

Rth_4:1 Then went Boaz up to the gate, and sat him down there: and, behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz spake came by; unto whom he said, Ho, such a one! turn aside, sit down here. And he turned aside, and sat down.

Rth_4:2 And he took ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit ye down here. And they sat down.

Deu_16:18 Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.

Accordingly, this law is the foundational structure of Israelite Government, that is the Headship of the Elders or old men, the Judges were taken from the Natural Heads of the people with an Officer or Scribe, Naturally the Head was an Elder men who had knowledge in YHWH’s Law and was honest and wise. These Elder Judges who were Heads of Families were Naturally kin to those who lived in Bethlehem, thus they sat at the literal Gate of Judgment and the matters of the jurisdiction was committed to those Old Men who would do the best adjudicating for their kinsmen.

Rth_4:3 And he said unto the kinsman/redeemer , Naomi, that is come again out of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelech’s:

Rth 4:4 And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee; and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it.

Rth 4:5 Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance.

Rth_4:6 And the kinsman GAL said, I cannot redeem GAL it for myself, lest I mar (A-SHY-Th אשׁחית H7843 ) mine own inheritance: redeem GAL thou my right GALThY to thyself; for I cannot redeem GAL it.

lest I mar (A-SHY-Th אשׁחית H7843 )

Deu_9:26 I prayed therefore unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, destroy H7843 not thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed through thy greatness, which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

Jdg_2:19 And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, that they returned, and corrupted H7843 themselves more than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them, and to bow down unto them; they ceased not from their own doings, nor from their stubborn way.

By the purely scriptural interpretation of the word ‘mar’, it seems safe to conclude that the kinsman of Boaz who is neared than he, was afraid that Ruth and Naomi would destroy or corrupt his inheritance, in the same way the

two examples offer above, this is because the kinsman of whom Boaz is speaking does not know the virtue of Ruth, and must account her to be removed and as such she may be one who may corrupt his inheritance by her Moabite practices, much how Lot was corrupted by his life in Sodom, and the distant Benjamites had corrupted them selves.

Rth 4:7 Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbour: and this was a testimony in Israel.

Rth 4:8 Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.

Rth 4:9 And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech’s, and all that was Chilion’s and Mahlon’s, of the hand of Naomi.

Rth_4:10 Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon (H4248 Sick), have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off Y-KRaTh /יכרתH3772 from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.

While the poetic connection is present in this text of Ruth in the Hebrew it is much to complex to explain to those who do not study Hebrew, yet in the Greek I am persuaded that the LXX translators saw this Rhyme of thought and expressed it in the Greek for it’s readers as well, for those of you studying along who like such study as my self I encourage you to explore the Hebrew and Greek verse and it’s awesome poetry.

Mahlon Son of Elimelech / the Sick son of God my King has been redeemed by a New Covenant cut by Boaz / Strength

The words of Boaz’s doings are different in language but the same in reason as Deu_25:6, in the case of the letter of the law it is to keep the name in the linage, yet Boaz is a spiritual man and as such it is evident by his expression as to the Spirit of the Law, that is the phrase Y-KRaTh which is the word used in the ‘making’ of a covenant throughout the Law, that is that the name of the dead be not covenanted among his brother, this is contained in the Idea of the language, and if we remember the name Elimelech means God is my King and Mahlon the husband of Ruth means Sick, thus the symbolism of Christ’s work is yet not lost in this Kinsman redemption done by Boaz who is redeeming the line of his fallen brother Elimelech and moving Ruth and her people back into the Covenant of Israel despite the Sickness which befell her and Naomi in the land of their captivity.

Rth 4:11 And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said, We are witnesses. The LORD make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem:

Rth 4:12 And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which the LORD shall give thee of this young woman.

Rth 4:13 So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bare a son.

Rth 4:14 And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.

Rth 4:15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him.

Rth 4:16 And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.

Rth 4:17 And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.

Rth 4:18 Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron,

Rth 4:19 And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab,

Rth 4:20 And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon,

Rth 4:21 And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed,

Rth 4:22 And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.

With this story in mind consider the context given to us by the Apostle Paul the Benjamite:

Rom_6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Rom 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Rom 6:19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

Rom 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

Rom 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

Rom 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Rom_7:1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?

Rom 7:2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

Rom 7:3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

Rom 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

Rom 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

Rom 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

The Redemptive power of Christ! If that is not the theme of the story of Ruth and the end of the Book of Judges I do not know what it is!

Redeemed by the blood of the lamb as the seed of Israel we are kinsman redeemed!

Ruth the friend the out cast of the removed of Benjamin was called to be the wife a sick son of God the king, and in the removed land of Moab no rest was found her or her pleasant mother in law Naomi, Yet after the death of her sick husband she bound herself to the pleasant remnant of the only thread she had to the inheritance of Israel. Ruth humbled herself as a servant to Naomi and worked out her salvation with fear and trembling before the forefather of our Lord and Christ because she knew that he was her redeemer! And in her humility and zeal she received the reward of her faith in action, she was married to another who would bring forth fruit and that fruit would raise up the tribes of Israel by her womb, by her womb we are told was the seed given a restorer of life, and that son the neighbors called Servant the son of Strength Boaz!

JUDGES CHAPTER 23

RUTH pt.2

Compiled by JS Lowther

 

So the Pleasant widow who has deemed her self Bitter, has returned to her home land in Bethlehem of Judah with her loyal and faithful daughter in law her Friend Ruth. Heavy emphasis has been placed upon the state of Ruth’s status as it pertains to her family have been removed Benjamin living in the land of Moab, in this section I wish to focus attention more on the function of the Torah, the Rule of Law, God’s Law on the life of these people. YHWH’s Law is a culture, no different than the culture America or any other group of people has today. Israel operated by God’s law as their mean Culture, that is that they had the letter of the Law as the standard, not necessarily the Spirit, some folks such as the prophets and other holy men and women loved the Law thereby having the Spirit of the Law which gives life, but as a norm the Torah was the Common Law, no different than the way our early American and British ancestors used there common Law, some of which came directly from the Bible, some of which was not. Yet in the time of Ruth we may see a functional Biblical Common Law, this detail of the story of Ruth is what makes her book special beside the amazing history and Spiritual wealth we have seen so far.

Rth_2:1 And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband’s, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.

Rth 2:2 And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter.

Rth 2:3 And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech.

Rth 2:4 And, behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORD be with you. And they answered him, The LORD bless thee.

Rth 2:5 Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this?

Rth 2:6 And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said, It is the Moabitish damsel that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab:

Rth 2:7 And she said, I pray you, let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves: so she came, and hath continued even from the morning until now, that she tarried a little in the house.

Rth 2:8 Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens:

Rth 2:9 Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn.

The Law in operation in this section the story of Ruth and Naomi is

Deu_24:17 Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow’s raiment to pledge:

Deu 24:18 But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing.

Deu 24:19 When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger H1616

for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.

Deu 24:20 When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

Deu 24:21 When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

The Biblical Common Law was being followed out here perfectly, and due to the tightness of the society it was undoubted that the hap would fall that Ruth would glean a Kinsman’s field, yet this law is offering the right of privilege from two angles: It was the Right of Naomi to glean as a widow, and her widowhood would have been known to those who knew her, as well Ruth is a stranger that is a sojourner and she as a stranger has the right also to lawfully glean from the residue of the reapers. This is Biblically Realistic Welfare, and it is the only way to have a righteous system of Welfare one where the widow, fatherless and stranger are protected from starvation by imposing the blessing of God’s Law upon the field owner, which by course causes the poor to work for their entitled portion, rendering them diligent and not slothful. As we will see in the story of Ruth her hard work causes the wealthy man Boaz to want to help her more than the Law of God entitles her and Naomi to.

Rth_2:10 Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger? H5237

In the prior Law in Deu_24:19 the word translated Stranger is the Noun use גּי / GuR H1616, it is synonymous with the Verb גּוּר / GUR H1481 which simply refers to the action of Sojourning, thus one who is Sojourning is a Sojourner and as such a stranger to those whose land he passes through. Yet in this verse the word הנכרי / NoKRY-Eh is used

This is a suffixed form of NoKRY H5237, and meaning H5235 specifically some thing distinct or noticeable, this root word is used in the word just prior in the same sentence, as most Hebrew stories are Poetic verse, this last portion of Ruth 2:10 rhymes in the Hebrew sense saying

להכירניH5234 that thou shouldest take knowledge ואנכיH595 of me, seeing I נכריה׃H5237 a stranger?

LEh-KYRN-Y V-ANKY NoKRY-Eh

A more poetic and literal translation may expresses the point of the poetic verse in English a bit more if said like this: ‘How is it that in your eyes I find Grace, did not you notice to notice that I am noticeable?’, it could as well read to make the same point: ‘did you not distinguish to distinguish my distinctness?

The word NoKRY is also used to reference racial strangers or those who are racially distinguished or notice-able a midst a homogeneous population, being distinguish-able.

Admittedly this is why some who investigate the language of Ruth become convinced of the fact she is indeed a Racial stranger and / or a Moabite, while not considering that, Moab, the incestuous cousins of Isaac, bred by Lot and his daughter, most likely looked rather similar to an Israelite, unless by this time Moab had already mingled with darker races. As fore the evidence of language on how to understand this verse, this is not the only use of this Hebrew word here seen in Ruth 2:10 particularly, as the Hebrew spelling is NoKRY-Eh meaning notice-able or distinct-ness. And is otherwise understood as by considering another in English verse which uses the same exact Hebrew spelling as seen in Ruth 2:10:

Isa 28:21 For the LORD shall …bring to pass his act, his strange (נכריהH5237) act.

This statement is obviously not referencing a Racial or Ethnic stranger, but a distinct or noticeable action, just as Ruth was pointing out about her self in the context.

As well the root word NoKR spelled in the negative tense LEh-KYRN-Y, can be seen in the most related way in the Hebrew Scripture in

Deu_33:9 Who said unto his father and to his mother, I have not seen him; neither did he acknowledge (LA-KYR) his brethren, nor knew his own children: for they have observed thy word, and kept thy covenant.

Thus, I believe it is safely established that this phrase in Ruth 2:10 is not referencing Ruth’s physiognomy of race or ethnicity. Rather the opposite point is being made in Ruth’s question: Why Did Boaz not distinguish to distinguish Ruth’s distinctness? His answer follows in the story…

Rth_2:11 And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore.

Rth 2:12 The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.

Rth_2:13 Then she said, Let me find favour in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid, though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens. (Here the word handmaiden may be easily understood by comparing this status to that of Hagar, Bilha or Zilpah, as they are all SiPHE /שפחה ( H8198 ) a word which literally means ‘of Kin’ as the hand maidens were often relatives particularly to the wife of a husband or even perhaps a more distant relative.)

Rth 2:14 And Boaz said unto her, At mealtime come thou hither, and eat of the bread, and dip thy morsel in the vinegar. And she sat beside the reapers: and he reached her parched corn, and she did eat, and was sufficed, and left.

Rth_2:15 And when she was risen up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and reproach her not:

Rth 2:16 And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.

Rth 2:17 So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned: and it was about an ephah of barley.

Rth 2:18 And she took it up, and went into the city: and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned: and she brought forth, and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed.

Rth_2:19 And her mother in law said unto her, Where hast thou gleaned to day? and where wroughtest thou? blessed be he that did take knowledge of thee. (Here we see a related word to our prior word NoKRY it is M-KYRN)

And she shewed her mother in law with whom she had wrought, and said, The man’s name with whom I wrought to day is Boaz.

Rth_2:20 And Naomi said unto her daughter in law, Blessed be he of the LORD, who hath not left off his kindness to the living and to the dead. And Naomi said unto her, The man is near of kin unto us, one of our next kinsmen ( literally the word translated kinsman is identical with the word Redeemer / M-GAL-NU/מגאלנו. it always implies kinship )

This is the first mention of the law of the kinsman redeemer

The law in mention:

Lev_25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.

Rth 2:21 And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest.

Rth 2:22 And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field.

Rth 2:23 So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.

So here we end off speaking of the barley harvest which immediately is followed by the wheat harvest, and is celebrated at the time of Pentecost, which is called the feast of the first fruits of the wheat harvest. In line with our symbolism flush through out this story so far, do not let the calendaric biblical chronology go unnoticed, as we consider the Spiritual view of YHWH’s redemption of his removed people Israel, the Gentiles, by the blood of his own son who is as well the Son of Boaz of Bethlehem, the son of David our kinsman redeemer and KING!

A better understanding of the Stranger:

While on this subject consider the Greek word Xenos which is the stranger in the LXX in verse 10 David says this is his state due to his Zeal for YHWH

Psa 69:8 I became strange to my brethren, and a stranger to my mother’s children. In the Hebrew we see our prior word NoKRY, but in the Greek the word Xenos G3581

As well the verb use of this word may be seen in 1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: Here a form of Xenos is seen as well, it is then evident that Xenos has very little to due with Race or Ethnicity, while differences of one people to another may be ‘strange’, such as Ruth being raised as distinct from the commonwealth and Law of Israel, she was Xenos to those who distinguished her as a stranger.

We may thus see a holistic application of this same transition Boaz is recognizing in Ruth, as it speaks of the Gentile Israelites of Ephesus:

Eph_2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

Eph_2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers G3581 Xenos from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Eph 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

Rth 2:14 And Boaz said unto her, At mealtime come thou hither, and eat of the bread, and dip thy morsel in the vinegar. And she sat beside the reapers: and he reached her parched corn, and she did eat, and was sufficed, and left.

In keeping with the removed Xenos status of Ruth’s family, and thus being a stranger to YHWH’s covenant as a woman born to removed Gentile parents, the neatly tied reconciliation process my as well be seen as being offered by this great grand father of our Savior Jesus Christ!
