(Question: Where did we acquire the quality of romantic love? It would be from the image of the Creator; so would not our Creator understand, and express, romance Himself?)

(The courting)

Gen. 17:1,2,4,7 “And when Abram [later named Abraham] was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am Almighty God; walk before Me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.…, and thou shalt be a father of many nations, …And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed [“Christ” Gal. 3:16] after thee.”

“Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD’S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is. Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and He chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day.” Deut.10:14,15 (KJV) emphasis added

(The wedding)

Abraham‘s descendents grew into 12 tribes, (known as Israelites or children of Israel, never Jews) later to be delivered from the bondage of Egypt by Moses, then proposed to on mount Sinai, through Moses, by the LORD their God .

“And Moses came and called the elders of the People, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. And all the People answered together, and said, ‘All that the LORD hath spoken we will do.“ Ex. 19:7,8

(The covenant) bilateral

“You have today declared the Jehovah to be your God, and to walk in His ways, and to keep His statutes and His commandments, and His judgments, and to pay attention to His voice. And Jehovah has declared you today to be His people, a special treasure,…” Deut. 26:17,18 “The Interlinear Bible” Green

“…and in thy seed [Christ] shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;” Gen. 26:4

(Covenant conditions)

Deut. 28:1 “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: “ “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:” Deut. 28:15ff

“This contract was conditional upon Israel’s fulfillment of her vow to follow God’s Laws, statutes, and judgments.” (Ex. 19:5)

(To the new bride)

Deut. 10:12 “And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and His statutes, which I command thee this day for thy [temporal and eternal] good?”

“Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.” I Peter 3:6 “…do their duty to one another, not out of fear, nor from force, but from a willing mind, and in obedience to the commandment of God” (1 Vol. Commentary, by Matthew Henry)

“And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which He sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. …There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.”” Joshua 21:43,45

(Note: After King Solomon’s reign, the -12- tribes of Israel split into two nations, Israel & Judah, over a dispute about taxes; “they were still the same covenant people but two separate folds”)

(Then our infidelity)

Jere. 3:8 “And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel [ten northern tribes] committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.”; “For the LORD shall smite Israel,… and shall scatter them [all of Israel, and Judah both (save for the remnant in Jerusalem) went into Assyrian captivity] beyond the [Euphrates] river, because they have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger“ I Kings 14:15

Biblical scholars for many years held that the nomadic Indo-European & Eurasian peoples are descendants of the “Lost Tribes” of Israel; though “archaeological evidence has been lacking. That is no longer the case. The clay cuneiform ‘letters’ found in Ashurbanipal’s royal library at Kijunjik are the ‘missing links’ connecting the Israelites to the peoples of Western Europe and America who trace their roots to the Scythians and Cimmerians.” (“Missing Links Discovered in Assyrian Tablets” by E. Raymond Capt  M.A., A.I.A, F.S.A.Scot.)

“…[then] thus saith the LORD God unto the land of Israel; ‘An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.…. Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen [the descendants of Canaan, the cursed, who Esau married into, to become known as Edomites’ or Reds; always the enemy of the true covenant people to this day], and they will possess their houses….‘” Ezekiel 7:2,24

(The promise)

Hosea 1:9 b-11 “’…for ye [house of Israel] are not My people, and I will not be your God.’ V10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered;

and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, ‘Ye are not my people‘, there it shall be said unto them, ‘Ye are the sons of the living God [denotes Christians]’” [“Those who follow the religion of Judaism are never called by the Name of Christ, and cannot therefore be the people of God, for He says His people are called by His Name.”]’ V.11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel [a symbolic name for Israel].” [for] “ ’Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new (unilateral) covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:,… I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts [only true Israel received the law]; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Jere. 31:31,33b

(But how can these promises be made to Israel, when His own Law (Deut. 24:1-4) prohibits a man from remarrying his divorced wife, the house of Israel, upon her leaving her second marriage? Will love conjure?)

(To the remaining remnant of Judah, later, removed from Jerusalem by the Babylonians)

Jere. 24:1,2 “The Lord skewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs… One basket had very good figs,.. and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.”

Jere, 24:8 “And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that [defiantly] remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt: And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth…”

“Some of the bad figs of Judah remained in the city of Jerusalem after the captivity by Nebuchadnezzar, avoiding capture. (2 Kings 25:22).These post-captivity inhabitants of Jerusalem [the bad figs] were joined by Hittites, Egyptians, Edomites, etc. [that invaded the vacated land]. When the good fig people of Judah, Benjamin and Levi returned to the land, many fell under the influence of the bad figs.” (Who is Esau-Edom?, p.30)

[All the people then living in Judea were then known as “Judeans”, as in “Texans“ (Strong’s #G2453 translated “Jews”), regardless of their race. Not all were of Jacob, His sheep, but also of the invaders, and also many were a] v.9, “…hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.”

 

 

(Then)

“Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel; ‘Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart‘” Jere. 24:5,6,7

“And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, art not the least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule [shepherd] My people [true] Israel.” Matt. 2:6

(The LORD comes for His woman Israel)

“But He [Jesus] answered and said, ‘I am not sent but unto the lost [#G622-destroy, lose, perish] sheep of the house of Israel. [His woman]”’ Matthew 15:24

(But at the Passion of Christ she, both the house of Israel and Judea, again, chooses the wrong man)

Mat. 27:21,22 “The governor answered and said unto them, ‘Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you?’ They said, ‘Barabbas‘. Pilate saith unto them, ‘What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?’ They all say unto him, ‘Let him be crucified‘. [She provoked the death of the only man who truly loved her]”

(Afterward, at Pentecost, Peter told “her“, true Israel, what they had done)

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, Whom ye have crucified, both LORD and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart,…” Acts 2:36, 37a

“[She then realized the horrible mistake that she had made. Though now by His death, freed from the eternal consequences of the Law that condemned her adulterous ways, she no longer desired her current life without Him. She realized true love was in honoring Him, and following His ways; in grief she cried out]…and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Acts 2:37b

“Then Peter said unto them, ’Repent, [Repentance is dying to the old life of sin.] and be baptized every one of you (Immersed in the watery grave) in the name of Jesus Christ for [Strong’s G1519] the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.’ [for they already believed]” Acts 2:38

(Jesus did what, by the law, was the seemingly impossible)

“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. 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, thought she be married to another man. 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 [your 1st husband] who is raised from the dead, That we should bring forth fruit unto God,” Rm 7:2-4

(So she also dies; washed in the blood, and raised as clean as a virginal bride to be with Him, that she may again be betrothed to the only one that loved her.)

“For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God. For I have promised [betrothed] you to one Man, to present you a pure virgin to Christ” 2 Cor.11:2 (The Interlinear Bible, Green)

(And as Christ had promised in) Hosea 2:19,20 “And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD“ [then as is customary after a betrothal ceremony, she was given a gift, in this case, the Holy Spirit]

“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.” Hosea 2:14

(Fast forward)

“As the Leydenites [who elected to come to the new world, to become “Pilgrims] worked out where they were going, …that purpose was beginning to come clear. As Robinson would shortly write, …‘Now as the people of God in old time were called out of Babylon civil, the place of their bodily bondage, and were to come to Jerusalem, and there to build the Lord’s temple, or tabernacle …so are the people of God now to go out of Babylon spiritual to Jerusalem… and to build themselves as lively stones into a spiritual house, or

temple, for the Lord to dwell in…” “The Light and the Glory“, Peter Marshall, David Manuel, Fleming H. Revell Co., 1977, p.110

“[The Pilgrims were later followed to the New World by the Puritans after] a farewell sermon…preached by a stalwart young Puritan minister named John Cotton,… preached on 2 Samuel 7:10 (KJV): ‘Moreover, I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime [only differently; with usury, poisons and contrived wars].’ ‘Go forth,’ Cotton exhorted, ‘…with a public spirit,’ with that ‘care of universal helpfulness…Have a tender care…to your children, that they do not degenerate as the Israelites did…’”

“Cotton’s sermon was of a nature to inspire these new children of Israel with the belief that they were the Lord’s chosen people; destined, if they kept the covenant with Him, to people an fructify this new Canaan in the western wilderness.” Ibid, p. 157

[So here we are today; will she, the true Israelites, stay true to her betrothal vows, will she obey and continue as His help meet, to be a blessing to the rest of the world as promised Abraham.?]

“[For] Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Prov.31:10-12 “I the Lord, search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” Jere.17:10

(A TEST-The First Commandment)

“Thou shalt have no other gods [ Aloha- Strong’s #430 …occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates, …(very) great, judges, x mighty (men)] before Me.” Ex. 20:3

(For we as a nation)

Isa. 33:22 “For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; [do we honestly believe this; dare we paraphrase it as—‘for the LORD is our Judicial branch, The LORD is our Legislative branch, The LORD is our chief Executive branch;’ ?] He will save us–[both spiritually and physically]”

Eccles. 1:9 “[Now] The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” [so] “Notwithstanding they [as we now] would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God. And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them. And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two …[a donkey and an elephant]…And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire [of contrived senseless wars, abortions and a national debt burden with usury],… and sold themselves [as we sold ourselves to, and voted for, the Babylonian system, for personal gain] to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger.” II Kings 17:14-17a

“For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God. For I have promised [betrothed] you to one Man, to present you a pure virgin to Christ. But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve in his craftiness, so your thoughts should be corrupted from the purity which is due to Christ .” 2 Cor.11:2 (The Interlinear Bible, Green)

(We’ve been warned: Benjamin Franklin was aware of the danger)

Quote: “I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. That menace, gentlemen, is the [false] Jews. In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation was founded… If you do not exclude them from these United States, in this Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives, our substance and jeopardize our liberty,,, I warn you, gentleman, if you do not exclude Jews for all time, your children will curse you in your graves.” -Benjamin Franklin, at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 , recorded in the diary of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney.

(It’s Done: We are not Babylon, but been taken to Babylon economically, socially, spiritually & politically)

“You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our [the false Jews] guilt. We are intruders. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom not merely of the latest great war [WWI] but of nearly all your wars and revolutions in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone. “ -(“A Real Case Against the Jews.“ The Century Monthly Magazine, February 1928, p. 347-48) “…the Idumeans (Edomites) were…made Jews ,…and a Turkish people (Khazars) were mainly Jews in South Russia [Judaism\Talmudism their chosen state religion,7th century.] …The main part of Jewry never was in Judea and had never come out of Judea” H.G. Wells, “The Outline of History”,3rd ed., MacMillian-1921 p.494

(How did this happen? We first went spiritually into “Judeo-Christianity“, an oxymoron, placing an anti-Christ before God)

Isa. 56:10,11 “His watchmen [the “Judeo-Christian” churches] are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber, Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter,” “[An astounding] and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and My People love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? [The fault lies not with the conquerors, but with the conquered]“ Jere. 5:30,31

(Awake America)

Isa. 1:21 “How is the faithful city become an harlot! It [she] was full of judgment; Righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.” “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen [the fallen lady], and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird [just as Benjamin Franklin had warned].” Rev.18:2 NASB

“Throughout the whole of Holy Writ there are only two cities,…Babylon and New Jerusalem are shadow types of the governments, nations, and kingdoms of the world and the kingdom of God.” (“Dictionary of Bible Symbolism” Hunter)

(To the remnant of the, white-chosen-Israel, God’s servant race of 1 Peter 2:9,10)

‘And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, ”Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her [the fallen lady] sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.’” Rev.18:4

[The fault is with us the conquered; we must turn back to the Father, bringing others with us (2Cor 5:18), to again be a blessing, both temporal and eternal, to the world as promised Abraham; for the Spirituality of a country is that of us, it‘s people.] v.18 “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry or reconciliation;” “that is the ministry of the gospel, by which this reconciliation is published to such as are yet enemies to God”(Matthew Poole’s Commentary)

 

 

 

Repent, for having been so deceived by the anti-Christ enemy (Luke 21:8], and “My people” pray the promise (II Chronicles 7:14) “…[that] in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” Gen 22:18

“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.” Malachi 4:1-4
