FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY

GOD THE HUSBAND, GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE CORRECTOR

Given in the night from the original King James Bible

Genesis 1 verse 27, “God created male and female”, verse 28 and said, “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth.” Genesis 2 verse 7, God formed man from the dust, a totally different process from Genesis 1. There is a debate over whether Adam and Eve were the first humans created, especially in the light of Genesis 3 verse 20. Eve being the mother of all living! Before Adam and his wife disobeyed God they were going to live forever. After disobedience they died in the time frame of Gods day which is within 1000 years, see 2 Peter 3 verse 8. Once relationship with God is broken death is the result. Ephesians 2 verse 1 tells us “We were dead in trespasses and sins” before we had a relationship with God. In the light of clear historic evidence that humans have been around for at least 40,000 years and the event of Adam is approximately 6000 years old. Perhaps Eve is the mother of all those who were to have a relationship (living) with God.

Is she an example of Gods wife? The twelve tribes of Israel as recorded in Isaiah 54 verse 5, “for thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of Hosts is His name; and thy redeemer the Holy one of Israel; the God of the whole earth shall He be called.” Who as a wife, was also to bring forth children of God. The first being Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Ghost but born after the marriage, Saviour of all men: A descendant of the tribe of Judah, who was a descendant of Eve. Interestingly Isaiah 54 verse 6 and 7 continue on by saying God was going to cast His wife away for a short time, presumably less than a 1000 years or Bible day. Jeremiah 3 verse 8 gives a clearer reason for the act, “And I saw, when all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce;” In Jeremiah 3 verse 14 it also points out God was to remarry Israel and take people from families and cities of Israel to Zion or Jerusalem, Jeremiah 3 verse 15, God is to give them Pastors to teach them knowledge and understanding, verse 16, when in the land and with their population greatly increased the Old Testament covenant ways were not going to be done anymore. Verse 17, at that time in the future they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord and nations shall pay homage to it. Verse 18, Judah the tribe of Kings, and the house of Israel will come together out of the land of the North (Where they were in captivity to the gentile powers of the time) to the land given for an inheritance unto your fathers. Considering Jeremiah 3 verse 19 and the inheritance promises found in Genesis 35 verse 11. The reference to Jerusalem the throne of the Lord in Jeremiah 3 verse 17 is surely about the New Jerusalem.

Now before we identify Zion and the New Jerusalem, we have to clarify when the remarriage of God to Israel occurred, because before a bill of divorce can be annulled the Husband needs to die. God as we are is subject to His laws. When did God die to allow the remarriage? Colossians 2 verse 9, tells us Jesus is the fullness of the God Head Bodily. When He died, God effectively died. Now considering God was going to remarry Israel as soon as possible, Isaiah 54 verse 7, “For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.” is it not reasonable to assume that the remarriage occurred as soon as the resurrection had taken place. Jesus as God was to be the Husbandman; Jesus hinted at this immediately prior to the crucifixion when He said in Matthew 26 verse 53, “And He shall presently give me more than 12 legions of Angels (messengers)” a strong indication of Israel, as Israel is most often associated with the number 12 in scripture, and Israel’s calling was to be messengers and spread the message of God to the other nations. Secondly, when we receive our salvation we become the children of God, which in the original English Bible is mentioned 9 times and only in the New Testament. Now God is not a hypocrite, He expects marriage before children and Gods children were first born on the day of Pentecost, some 50 days after the resurrection, so the remarriage must have occurred before this time.

Let’s go back to Isaiah 54 verse 1, “For more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife.” The wife, Israel, is to be as the sand of the sea in number, Genesis 22 verse 17 and Romans 9 verse 27 there are many other verses to confirm this. Then who are the children of the wife which are fewer than the children of the desolate? The children of the wife are those that are born of water and the Spirit keeping His commandments, obeying what Father says. The children of the desolate are in fact the 12 Tribes of Israel who came from the barren desolate Sarah, these 12 Tribes were married to God. These things are clearly reiterated in the New Testament as we will see later.

Why would God marry Israel? Jacob whose name was changed to Israel, Genesis 32 verse 24 to 28, loves God and did everything in his power to receive Gods’ blessing. God knowing Jacob through the 12 tribes would keep His way, Genesis 18 verse 19, reciprocated with His own love. Malachi 1 verse 2 and Romans 9 verse 13, says “As it is written Jacob (Israel) have I loved but Esau have I hated.” God loved His people and made great promises to Jacob (Israel, His wife) through Abraham his Grandfather, see Genesis 18 verses 18 and 19, Genesis 35 verse 11 and Genesis 48 verse 19. These were unconditional and she in return was to fight for and provide safe environments, whether she knew it or not, for His children the true Church born of water and the Spirit out of all nations and kindred of the earth. The Spirit is given by Jesus, Matthew 3 verse 11, the author and finisher of our salvation.

Let’s move to the New Testament, where all these things are clearly confirmed, and by seeing, learn to be thankful for all the good things God has provided his wife. So the children, who like their Father have eternal life, can make themselves ready for when they become like Him, 1 Corinthians 15 verse 49 to 52, 1 Thessalonians 4 verse 16 to 17, 1 John 3 verse 2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we should be: But we know, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”

Part 2: Romans 9 verse 27, “E-sai-as also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:” Remember Isaiah 54 verse 1, let us also consider Isaiah 54 verse 13, “and all thy children (that is the children of the wife, not the children of Israel, who is the wife, Isaiah 54 verse 5) shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the peace of thy children.” Philippians 4 verse 7 “And the peace which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Romans 10 verse 1, “BRETHREN, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.” The Greek word for saved is, sateria, meaning, salvation, save or saving. Romans 10 verse 2, “For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge (of Jesus)”. Romans 11 verse 25, “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in (or finished).” Israel was scattered through all the nations (Gentiles) and in part had lost her identity. See scattered in your concordance and look from Isaiah to Zechariah where there is 33 records of this happening. But in their new home, that blindness would be removed and they would know and identify that they were Gods people, the wife, but not Gods children who are born of water and the Spirit. Let us continue on, in Romans 11 verse 26, “And so all Israel shall be saved: (the Greek word here is Sozo, meaning preserved or made whole). as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:” (The ungodliness as cited in Jeremiah 3 verses 8 and 9 which caused the divorce). Romans 11 verse 27, “For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take their sins away”. They were to receive the fulfilment of the promises made in Genesis 18 verse 18, Genesis 35 verse 11 and Genesis 48 verse 19. Romans 11 verse 28, “As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes (most have not recognised the full gospel) but as touching the election they (Israel the wife) are beloved for the fathers' sakes ” (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to whom the promises in Genesis were made.) Romans 11 verse 29, “For the gifts and calling of God (concerning Israel) are without repentance.” So those who want to live forever (be saved) and become children can be assured of the promised gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2 - Verse 38.

 

Part 3: The following unveiling is an inspired understanding given by God: However as the writer is aware only God can reveal this to the reader.

Revelation 21 is believed by many to be a futuristic vision, but is it? Considering scripture as a confirmer of itself, a summary is revealed, verse 1, Old Testament, New Testament, sea (confusion). No confusion now, everyone knows Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life. Verse 2, preparation of the great Christian nations as the wife comes to her new lands. Jeremiah 3 verse 18, “In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.” Revelation 21 verse 3, men become the temple of God, 1 Corinthians 3 verse 17, “For the temple of God is Holy, which temple ye are.” Revelation 21 verse 4, the former things of the old life and the pain of death are gone in the person who has Gods Spirit. Verse 5, It is Jesus that does these things. Verse 6, The Holy Spirit given by Jesus is the water of life see John 7 verse 38 and 39, Revelation 21 verse 7, we need to overcome to be a child of God, Verse 8, those who don’t overcome are listed. Verse 9, the bride, the lambs wife is to be revealed. Revelations 21 verse 10, the Holy or New Jerusalem is revealed as the lambs’ wife and identified in verse 12 as the 12 tribes of the children of Israel (names, is not in the original text). See Ezekiel 48 verses 31 to 34 for the same description of Israel. Let’s look at Galatians 4 verse 25, this tells us the old Jerusalem is a representation of bondage. Galatians 4 verse 26, the New Jerusalem (the 12 tribes), which God has brought about, is free. Is there a land of the free in the world today? Are there free democratic societies in the world today that through the gospel age, even before their full inheritance was realised, protected and facilitated the church of the children of God often without even knowing? If there is then as the Lords wife she is the mother of us all. Galatians 4 verse 26, “But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” Reading Galatians 4 verse 27 to 31 should now make complete sense. Hebrews 12 verse 22, “But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, (Gods wife), the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels (messengers).” To this day some 80% of Americans would profess to believe in Christ, they have received the inheritance of Jacob by the blood or death of Christ. Hebrews 12 verse 23, “But to the general assembly and Church of the first born, (they have partaken of the Spirit and the water and the blood, see 1 John 5 verse 8) which are written in heaven.” These are the children of God.

Back to Revelation 21, interestingly the chapter ends the same as Revelation 20. If chapter 21 is a summary then chapter 20 must be the conclusion. In Revelation 20 verses 9 and 10 there is retribution. Verse 11 a revealing of the Lord upon His throne, presumably with the true Church, His children, the body of Christ who are as He, And in verses 12 and 13 judgment . As these things have not happened, where are we in the time frame when considering the conclusion?

The Millennium

Many talk of a period known as the Millennium. The writer concurs with the 1000 year period spoken of, however, declares the start of the period occurred between 978AD and 1066AD, by this time the migrations of Israel the wife were effectively complete with English unification in the 10th century. God whose greatest love is his children had by this time taken His protective wife and children (see Revelation 12 verse 17) out of the nations the times of the Gentiles fulfilled (Romans 11 verse 25). They were taken out of blood thirsty religious Europe into a safe place. Ezekiel 28 verses 25 and 26, “Thus saith the Lord God; when I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall sanctify them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in the land that I have given to my servant Jacob. And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards (churches) yea they shall dwell in confidence, when I have executed judgements upon all those that despise them round about them: And they shall know that I am the Lord their God.” In this new home and later the countries she moves to. Israel could always protect Gods children. Her strength and outreach has introduced Christ and produced children all over the world. All the emblems of Israel are found in Great Britain and although after the 978AD to 1066AD time frame there were religious kerfuffle and political and royal unrests, the children, those of His way, were safe. The bloody inquisitions of Europe never effected England or her new lands, and as God sternly expects his wife to safe guard the interest of the children, even Kings were dethroned for this purpose. King Charles the first flirting with religious idolatry and its abominations was beheaded due to lobbying by the Puritan movement (strict Protestants) championed by Oliver Cromwell, he was later titled Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland. He was offered the throne and monarchy but refused it.

Have we considered the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31, she has all the attributes of a perfect nation; enterprising, fair, honest, productive, charitable, and hard working. Proverbs 31 verse 20, “She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.” When immigrants arrived in America by boat; the new land of the free and promise; they are greeted by a glorious woman with a crown who is married to a King. Her hand stretched out with the light see Psalm 119 verse 105 ; wrapped in white robes of righteousness (the Church), see Revelation 19 verse 8, telling the world to bring her their poor and needy to breathe free. Is the virtuous woman the lambs’ wife? Is she represented as the Statue of Liberty? You are the receiver!

The United States of America and Great Britain so perfectly fit the bill of the promises made about being a nation and company of nations, Genesis 35 verse 11, and being called great. Genesis 48 verse 19, and they have kept the way of the Lord in justice and judgement, Genesis 18 verse 19, and have produced Gods word, the Bible in over 1000 different languages and promoted that word all over the world.

The Conclusion

If the Millennium started between 978AD and 1066AD it must have ended or end between 1978 and 2066, meaning, the little season of Revelation 20 verse 3 has or will start in this period. The writer sites 1982 as the start of the season. A year when a once in History event took place that started a movement of unparalleled religious compromise, combining with the manifesto of unbelief. Heralding gross immorality which now surround the Church and the wife, Revelation 20 verse 9, “And they went up on the breadth of the earth, compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: And fire came down from God out of Heaven, and devoured them:”

The question is how long is a little season if a normal season is 40 years?

The answer can be found as we look at JESUS.

Surely He comes quickly

Acts 2 verses 38 and 39 is the first ressurection, on these children the second death has no power.
