Instead they will say, ‘As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and all the other lands to which He had banished them.’ For I will return them to their land that I gave to their forefathers.
“For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass’s colt.”
“Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.”
“A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her.”
1 Samuel 12:3
“Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.”
“Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:”
“Sing to us of the songs of Zion.”
So they dragged him out of the vineyard and murdered him. “What do you suppose the owner of the vineyard will do to them?” Jesus asked.
What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.
Jesus began to speak to them [the chief priests, scribes and elders who were questioning Him] in parables:
“A man PLANTED A VINEYARD AND PUT A WALL AROUND IT, AND DUG A PIT FOR THE WINE PRESS AND BUILT A TOWER; and he rented it out to tenant farmers and left the country.
You will plant vineyards and care for them, but you will not drink the wine or eat the grapes, for worms will destroy the vines.
Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers.

Francis Scott Key was a gifted amateur poet. Inspired by the sight of the American flag flying over Fort McHenry the morning after the bombardment, he scribbled the initial verse of his song on the back of a letter. Back in Baltimore, he completed the four verses (PDF) and copied them onto a sheet of paper, probably making more than one copy. A local printer issued the new song as a broadside. Shortly afterward, two Baltimore newspapers published it, and by mid-October it had appeared in at least seventeen other papers in cities up and down the East Coast.
This 19th century version (MP3) of the Star-Spangled Banner was performed on original instruments from the National Museum of American History’s collection. Arranged by G. W. E. Friederich, the music is played as it would have been heard in 1854.
The Star-Spangled Banner
O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
’Tis the star-spangled banner – O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
The donkey is charged with a rich, important biblical symbolism. Usually the kings choose a strong and combatant animal for ceremonies – a thoroughbred horse, an imposing elephant or even a camel. David has a “royal she-mule”, Solomon is anointed as king on a “wild donkey”. And what does Solomon’s wild donkey signify? Christ enters Jerusalem on “the foal of a she-ass,” as the king of the Jews. How do we account for the fact that in Hebrew the ass’s foal is not a diminutive of the word ‘donkey’, as well as the fact that the she-ass signifies ‘slow pace’ and has nothing in common with the jackass? The paper replies to these curious questions and to the riddle as to why the king of the Jews rides “the foal of a she-ass” and the king is of the tribe of Judah, of whom Jacob/Israel prophesies that he will untie his donkey, just as the apostles set free the ass’s foal for which Jesus Christ sent them. To decode these biblical symbols I use linguo-semiotic approach.
1. Messiah’s donkey in Easter story
Why in first century A.D. Jewish population of Jerusalem decode as the king of the Jews and the Messiah a stranger who enters the town “riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey”; and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass (KJV).
John and Matthew use a quote from the Old Testament:
as it is written: “Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion. Look, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!” John 12:14-15 (NRS)
to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet, saying, “Tell the daughter of Zion, Look, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Matthew 21:2-7 (NRS)
People in Christian culture are so accustomed to Easter story that they did not realize how strange and unusual is that act. To understand it cultural significance, we must remember the following facts:
• The New Testament was written by Jews for Jews, first.
• The New Testament is a type of Judaism based on the culture and customs brought from the Old Testament.
• Therefore, we should know well the Old Testament.
Subquestions can help us:
• What are the Hebrew terms for foal, coat, mule, she-ass, he-ass, donkey?
• Why the king of the Jews rides “the foal of a she-ass”?
• What is the symbolism of the royal Jewish animal in case that usually the kings choose a strong and combatant animal for ceremonies – a thoroughbred horse, an imposing elephant or even a camel.
It is impossible to give complete and satisfactory answers to these questions in short text but let me try to start to answer.
2. The Hebrew terms for English Biblical terms foal, coat, she-ass, he-ass, donkey
John and Matthew quoted Zechariah 9:9:
Rejoice greatly, O daughter Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem! Lo, your king comes to you; triumphant and victorious is he, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (NRS)
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. (KJV)
2.1. The Old Testament prophecy about the ass’s foal of the Messiah and donkey-terminology
In Zechariah 9:9 the terms are:
male donkey/male ass חֲמוֹר [hamòr]
colt עֲיר [aìr]
pl. female donkey/female ass אֲתֺנוֹת [atonòt]
donkey’s foal, lit. son of female donkey בֶן־אָתֺנוֹת [ben atonòt]
The Messiah’s foal is situated in the context of the particularly well-developed terminology in the Old Testament:
What we see in English terms ass, donkey and mule is that female and male individuals are not in relationship of suppletion. We need to add to the same word the pronouns she or he as formants in a compound. But in Hebrew she-donkey and he-donkey are suppletive, i.e. they have different roots. In addition, a young donkey is one-word-term derived from a third root and more terms are used by the prophet. Suppletivism (‘adding’, ‘exchange’) is a way of expressing grammatical meanings of a word in which a relevant grammatical word form use another root. In clear words – semantically connected words has different roots. Suppletive forms need special attention – they are seen as “irregular” or even “highly irregular”.
Examples for suppletive facts: good-better-best; Bulgarian terms for мъж (man) and жена (woman) are suppletive.
We needed this definition for better orientation in Hebrew terms. In addition, there are some unknown to Europeans features of the Hebrew language and alphabet: In Hebrew the root consists of consonants and no vocals. In Hebrew Alphabet, there are no letters for vocals. The vocals are written with diacritics – dots and dashes.
3. The male donkey חֲמוֹר [hamòr]
3.1. Additional information from the extended semantics of the roots (logic, associations, and contexts)
Definition: The root is morpheme that carries the mutual semantic features among all word-derivates from that root. For example, there is something common between book, booklet, book-shop, booking etc., including literal and figurative meanings.
The information for the roots is from BibleWorks4.
Male-donkey Het-Mem-Reish חמר
I. ferment, boil, foam; II. be redחָמַר [hamàr]
III. smear with asphalt (Exo 2:3, only)
wine חֶמֶר [hèmer]
bitumen חֵמָר [hemàr]
cement, mortar, clay חֺמֶר [hòmer]
(Bibliography used in BibleWorks4: Cohon, Samuel, “Ass,” in ISBE, I, pp. 287-88. Mccullough, W. S., “Ass,” in IDB, II, pp. 260-61. Mckenzie, J. L., “Ass” in Dictionary of the Bible, I, Bruce, 1965, pp. 62-63. G.H.L.)
From Het-Mem-Reish the verb to be red [hamàr] is formed, which only appears in Job, 16:16 in the form [hamarmerà], meaning to be reddish. Classical (Библия, 1940) and current (Библия, 2001; 2002) protestant Bulgarian versions prefer to render [hamarmerà] as “to bloat”. Only the orthodox Bulgarian version is true to the original to become red (почервеня). The Septuagint prefers to render the prototype of macro-red, using the word συγκέκαυται, meaning burning in fire, suddenly set afire. According to BibleWorks4 this word is translated into Latin as comburere, but st. Jerome (347-420) does not use it in the Vulgata, preferring instead the word intumuit (‘to bloat’). The Slavonic translations in Russian, Polish and Czech keep to reddening – RST побагровело, BTP czerwone, BKR oduřavěla.
It becomes clear that the denotation of the male donkey comprises associations with macro-red and this type of macro-red is not loaded with positive semantizations and only with great difficulty could be taken as macro-light version of red. From the root of male donkey [hamòr] is also formed the word roebuck [iahmùr], where the internal motive clearly follows the line of reddishness.
3.2. The divine commandments and the male donkey חֲמוֹר [hamòr]
The word [hamòr] is used frequently and every time the divine commandments are verbalized in the Exodus and Deutoronomy. There are more than 10 uses – Exodus 13:13; 20:17; 21:33; 22:4; 22:9; 22:10; 23:4 23:5 23:12 34:20; Deuteronomy 5:14; 5:21; 22:3; 22:4; 22:10; 28:31.
3.3. The other meanings of the root Het-Mem-Reish
The meanings wine, bitumen, asphalt, cement, mortar, clay of the root of the word for the male donkey, Het-Mem-Reish, are derived from the semantic features ‘red’ and ‘material’, available in the original semitic root semantics. There are also other roots for these same words in Hebrew, but in Genesis, 11:3; Exodus, 2:3; Job, 4:19; Psalms 40 are used for derivations precisely from this root. Similarly, the non-standard word for wine, formed from the same root – wine [hèmer]. Hence, in Deuteronomy, 32:14 and Ezra, 6:9 a word from this root stands for the wine [hèmer]. According to BibleWorks4, two different roots should be considered here (one with the paradigm, become red, donkey and the other with wine, mud, clay, tar, mortar and stole), despite their complete concurrence.
3.3.1. bitumen/asphalt [hemàr] and mortar [hòmer]
Genesis, 11:3 narrates the building of the tower of Babylon.
They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar. (NAU)
Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. (NKJ)
In this Genesis 11:3 tar/asphalt translates [hemàr], whereas mortar translates [hòmer]. Exodus, 2:3 tells about the basket in which Moses is left to swim on the river – daubed it with slime (KJV); covered it over with tar and pitch (NAU); daubed it with bitumen (RSV); plastered it with bitumen (NRS); daubed it with asphalt (NKJ). In Exodus, 2:3 from the root of male donkey is the verb daubed it with; [tahmerà]. Job, 4:19 uses the word [hòmer] in the expression houses of clay (Bul. къщи от кал) [batèi hòmer].
3.3.2. wine [hèmer]
Deuteronomy 32:14 Curds of cows, and milk of the flock, With fat of lambs, And rams, the breed of Bashan, and goats, With the finest of the wheat– And of the blood of grapes you drank wine. (NAU)
Ezra 6:9 “Whatever is needed, both young bulls, rams, and lambs for a burnt offering to the God of heaven, and wheat, salt, wine and anointing oil, as the priests in Jerusalem request, it is to be given to them daily without fail, (NAU)
3.4. Red and white donkeys.
The meanings wine, bitumen, asphalt, mortar and clay indicate the exclusivity of the white donkey, because the usual meanings of the root for the male donkey [hamòr] are realized in the paradigm of the meanings ‘red’ and ‘material’. If the meaning ‘wine’ can be regarded as a denotation of a sacral element, then the meanings of ‘bitumen’, ‘asphalt’, ‘mortar’, ‘clay’ can be considered as an indication of a realization of the root inverse to the sacral – toward ‘dark’, ‘earthly’, ‘low’, ‘material’, ‘transient’ and even ‘hellish’. Precisely these meanings are used when Moses is hidden in the resin basket, so as not to drown in the river of life, full of ‘Nile’s crocodiles’. In a figurative sense, Moses remains hidden under this symbolic cover of resin, symbolizing ‘earthly’, ‘low’ and ‘transient’ until that moment in his life when he leaves the Pharaoh’s family.
3.5. The lexical semantization of the male donkey is ‘a symbol of the material’
An important distinctive feature of the word for male donkey חֲמוֹר [hamòr] is that male donkey easily becomes a symbol of the material, because in contemporary Hebrew the word ‘material’ is formed from the root of ‘substance’ חֺמֶר [hòmer], as well as the word ‘foam’ and the outdated smear with asphalt חָמַר [hamàr]. Traditional and contemporary rabbinic thought confirm the idea that “the Judahic Messiah riding a horse, controls the material and physical” (Zohar, Bamidbar, 3:207a). Rabbi Ari Kahn (Kahn), a professor at the Univeristy of Bar-Ilan (Israel) recalls Zohar’s commentary in his popular lectures.
Moreover, in contemporary Israelite society, the idea of the relation ‘material – the Messiah’s donkey’ has various manifestations. For instance, Sefi Rachlevsky, in his book „Messiah’s Donkey” (Rachlevsky 1998) sustains the claim that the national religious movement attempts to replace the democratic Hebrew state by a religious theocracy, using the term “straddling” the institutions of the democratic state. The author shows that the religious Zionist Rav Kuk discusses laic pioneers and politicians who established and built a democratic Hebrew state, as the Messiah’s donkey. “Materialists” (there is a word-play with donkey חֲמוֹר [hamòr] and the related words matter, material, substance חֺמֶר [hòmer]) have done the dirty work, so to speak, so that now the nationalist religious movement is designated by God to take over the state institutions in order to transform them into the nationalist religious ideal – the “essence of the Messiah”. Rachlevsky’s book crystallized secular Israel’s fear of ultra-Orthodox power … from a religious community bent on destroying Israel’s democracy.
The material is precisely related to the word for male donkey, insofar as male donkey and חֲמוֹר [hamòr] and matter, material חֺמֶר [hòmer] are derivatives of one and the same root. This kind of commentary, however, expresses the general idea based on only one of the three “donkey” terms used in Zechariah 9:9. This type of commentary omits details such as the element of elevation originating in Zechariah’s use of the word donkey’s foal עֲיר [aìr]. The semantics of ‘elevation’ and ‘soaring’ is carried by the entire semantics of the root of the word donkey’s foal. The other omission is Zechariah’s elaboration that the donkey is “the foal of donkeys” (בֶן־אָתֺנוֹת [ben atonòt]). Briefly, this kind of religious nationalist claim (to put it mildly) “conveniently” omits the context of Prophet Zechariah’s words in this verse.
3.6. Denotative and connotative aspects
From word-derivation point of view the he-donkey חֲמוֹר [hamòr] expresses the macro-red and macro-black in terms of Witkovski and Brown 1977; 1978; 1982, Wierzbicka 1996, Borg 2007.
From contextual, storyline point of view he-donkey is a marker for decisive moments of the life of tribes of Issachar and Judah (Genesis 49:11), of Abraham (Genesis 22:4); Joseph (Genesis 42:27; 44:13); Moses (Exodus 4:20; Numbers 16:15); The conquest of Jericho (Joshua 15:18); The tribe of Judah takes possession of the Holy Land (Joshua 15:12-20; Judges 1:10-16); One of the first punishments for disobeying the Torah in the Holy Land (Judges 6:15); Gideon and Samson (Judges 15:15-16);The beginning of the end of the epoch of the Judges (Judges 19-21); The beginning of the monarchy (1 Samuel 12:1-3); Death of the nameless prophet (3 Kings 13:13; 23-24; 27); king David (1 Samuel 16:20; 25:18-25; 40-44; 2 Samuel 16, 1-4; 17:23); king Solomon (1 Kings 2:8-10; 36-44); The actions of the prophet Elijah (2 Kings 4:22); The narrator is prophet Jeremiah, Chronicles and Kings (Jeremiah 22:19; 2 Chronicles 36:6; 2 Kings 24:6); The narrator is prophet Nehemiah (Nehemiah 7:65-68), Isaiah.
4. The Female Donkey אֲתוֹן [atòn]
Historically, the female donkey was preferred to the male because of its milk and because it was better for riding. In BibleWorks4 it is shown precisely why the donkey is related to the tradition of pacification and the Messiah, as told already by Jacob. This is said in Genesis, 49:11, where chapter 49 is dedicated to Jacob’s legacy to his twelve sons. Verses 10, 11 and 12 are dedicated to the tribe of Judah, from which David is a descendant. The descendents of Judah are the only tribe which returned from Mesopotamia and the New Testament indicates Jesus Christ as a descendent of King David. In Jacob’s legacy in Genesis, 49:11, for the first time, key terms ass’s colt, foal are used which are also inherited by the New Testament:
Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: Genesis 49:11 (KJV)
foals of a donkey, lit. sons of female donkey אָתֺנוֹ בּני [bnèi atonò];
binding his foal אֺסְרׅי עׅירוֹ [osrì irò]
binding his ass’s colt אֺסְרׅי בּני עׅירוֹ [osrì bnèi irò]
4.1. The prototype of the Messiah’s white donkey
The white she-donkeys in Judges 5:10 are a highly significant symbol because it relates to the prophecy that the Messiah will enter Jerusalem on a donkey.
Judges 5:10 “You who ride on white donkeys, You who sit on rich carpets, And you who travel on the road – sing! Judges, 5:10 (NAU)
Judges 5:10 Speak, ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in judgment, and walk by the way. (KJV)
The important notion in regard to the New Testament is “binding the ass’s colts”, where it is tacitly understood that there are “tied asses”.
4.1. Lexical and root information.
The root of the word אֲתוֹן [аtòn] is not mentioned in BibleWorks4. According to Genesius, however, in Arabic there is an non-developed root Alef-Tav-Nun אתן, meaning, ‘to walk with small steps’ which, with a preposition, can also mean ‘stand stable’, ‘stand firm’, ‘sustain’. This verb is close to the arab verb ‘refuse’ and, according to Gesenius, from this common, non-developed root derives the Hebrew word ass אֲתוֹן [atòn] (Gesenius, 1996, p. 95). In full agreement with Gesenius, the Easton Bible Dictioanаry (EBD) asserts that the ass is called אֲתוֹן [atòn], because of its slow gait.
According to the The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE), the word has a different origin:
‘Athon, Assyrian ‘atanu’ and Aramaic ‘atana’, is derived from ‘atha’ “to come,” “go,” etc. (Furst suggests that it may be derived from ‘athan, Aramaic ‘adhan, “to be slender,” “docile”, etc.) (Ass – ISBE)
Leaving the passage indicated in BibleWorks4 and to conclude, we should note that the donkey expresses the idea of ‘peace’ and ‘ordinariness’, as well as ‘God’s omnipotence who, if he wants to, makes something great of the most ordinary thing’. This is the sense commented in BibleWorks4, in the case of Numbers 22:21-28, where the donkey speaks to Balaam and becomes the carrier of divine providence. Let us recall that the idea of ‘ordinariness’ includes the most popular qualities of that animal – ‘stupidity’, ‘stubbornness’, ‘strong sexuality’.
Gesenius adds the meanings ‘walk with small steps’, as well as ‘refuse’, which have the potential to develop as ‘stand stable’, ‘stand firm’ and ‘sustain’. According to the ISBE-interpretation, the function of movement ‘going’, ‘coming’ is confirmed for denoting the female donkey.
We should note the interest in the term “white asses”. Dr. Thomas McDaniel, 2003 dedicates an entire monograph to this topic, including his interpretation. The book shows an impressive erudition in Semitic philology, knowledge of English translations and the Septuagint. The asses are not the focus of attention, but interestingly, McDaniel gives a completely different translation of Judges 5:10, omitting the female gender of the donkey and the “sitting ones” do not sit on rugs but on mules: Riders on young donkeys, those sitting on mules, and those walking along the way. The eccentricity of this translation may explain why the book was published by the author himself. In addition, the author has a series of original ideas.
The word donkeys אֲתֺנוֹת [atonòt] is in the feminine plural.
The term white is not expressed by the standard Hebrew term for white color (לָבָן [lavàn]), but by a word from the root Tzadi-Het-Reish צחר. In the English and Bulgarian translations, however, white donkeys צְחֺרוֹת אֲתֺנוֹת [atonòt tzehoròt] and white wool צָחַר צֶמֶר [tzèmer tzàhar] are not translated as reddish-gray, tawny, but consistently result as white (female) donkeys (Bul. бели магарици).
4.1.1. White she-donkeys, the root Tzadi-Het-Reish צחר and the closely related root Tzadi-He-Reish צהר
The Hebrew word for white is צְחֺרוֹת [tzehoròt] and the word’s root is Tzadi-Het-Reish צחר. The root Tzadi-Het-Reish צחר according BibleWoks4 has following meanings:
reddish-gray, tawny (Ezek 27:18) צָחַר [tzàhar]
tawny (Jud 5:10) צָחֺר [tzòhar]
The word white designated by words formed from that root appears only twice in the entire Old Testament. The first time is in Judges 5:10 and the second – in the word-combination white wool in Ezekiel, 27:18. Such a rare usage is significant in itself. In order to orient ourselves in regard to this meaning, we have to examine the full semantics of the root.
According to Gesenius 1996, the origin of צָחַר [tzàhar] derives from an unextended root in the language, meaning bedazzle, knock, shine, blinded by bright light.
The paradigm of such a denotation of white in the Old Testament comprises only two cases – white she-donkeys צְחֺרוֹת אֲתֺנוֹת [atonòt tzehoròt] and white wool צָחַר צֶמֶר [tzèmer tzàhar]. A possible reading of the word white is צֺחָר [tzòhar], but here I shall keep to צָחַר [tzàhar].
Thus, the root relates to active transformations of the idea of light. The singular form of white, צְחֺרוֹת [tzehoròt], isצָחֺר [tzahòr] and the main signification of that word is reddish-gray, tawny.
Consequently these translations depend on the tradition and on the amalgamation of this root with Tzadi-He-Reish צהר which is close to it. The paradigm of Tzadi-He-Reish צהרprovides the donkeys’ color:
I. noon, midday; II. roof (once, Gen 6:16) צֺהַר [tzòhar]
fresh oil יצְהָר [itzhàr]
press oil צָהַר [tzàhar]
(TWOT in BibleWords4)
It is important to check whether Bibles in other languages “insist” on the translation of צְחֺרוֹת [tzehoròt] as white, Bul. бели, since [tzahòr] denotes reddish-gray, tawny and is not the standard Hebrew word for white, which is לָבָן [lavàn]).
The Septuagint shows a leveling of two roots that are close, but different:
Tzadi-He-Reish צהר and Tzadi-Het-Reish צחר, translating the word צְחֺרוֹת [tzehoròt] with the meaning of the paradigm of the word צֺהָר[tzòhar]. Instead of the standard use of the term for white color (λευκός [leukòs]) or the standard word for light, Bul. cветлина, Gr. φὢς [fos], the Septuagint indicates the word μεσημβρίας [mesembrìas], meaning noon. Thus the Septuagint differs from the Slavonic and English translations which use the standard term for white color — бели, белых, białych, white.
The word צֺהַר[tzòhar] is used once as a term for the window of Noah’s Ark (Genesis 6:16). That which allows the seventy translators to treat the two roots as synonyms, are the semes ‘light’, ‘noon-light, as something positive’ and ‘ritual purity’. This is how the window of Noah’s arc and the white donkeys from Judges 5:10 turn out to be in a common paradigm, suggesting ‘light’ and ‘purity’.
The Vulgata uses the word nitēns, meaning shiny and not one of the standard words for white or light.
All translations maintain the whiteness, lightness and shininess of the donkeys. In this regard it is particularly significant that the legend of the Septuagint attributes a rabbinic authorship to the Greek translation, and the St. Jerome (347-420) spent much time in the Holy Land, studying Hebrew and advising local Judaic rabbis. The first occurs three centuries before the New era and the second – four centuries after the New era. In this way the tradition consistently confirms this translation.
Of the same order is the riddle why the kings David and Solomon choose foals which are “children of the she-donkey” as the royal animal and not the horse. Judges 5:10 shows that the use of donkeys or foals as animals for riding and expressing abundance, power, influence etc., is a tradition in the Near Eastern Israelite monotheistic culture.
White she-donkeys from Judges 5:10 are related to the Messiah and his foal of a donkey, lit. sons of female donkey, from Genesis, 49:11.
5. The colt עַיר [aìr]
BibleWorks4 distinguishes between two different roots Ayin-Yud-Reish ry[, which are spelled the same – ‘yr I и ‘yr II. From the first root derives עוּר [ur] rouse oneself, awake, incite, as well as עׅיר [ìr] excitement. From the second root derives עׅיר [aìr] he-donkey.
Genesius provides more information, the most valuable of which is the motive of forming the noun wild donkey עׅיר [aìr] – “The notion of being hot is applied in various ways: 1. to an ardent rapid course, or runing; a wild ass, so called from its rapid unrestrained running”. Interestingly, Genesius does not indicate the meaning of the root rouse oneself, awake, incite.
From this review of the root in BibleWorks4 and Gesenius, we can draw the following complex conclusion:
The cognitive, sub-consciously flowing relation of the word colt עׅיר [aìr] has five aspects, resulting from the colt’s qualities as well as of the extended semantics of the word’s root. The first aspect is that the colt lacks the association with strong sexuality, typical of mature donkeys, i.e. here the ‘lack of strong sexuality’ is at hand. The second aspect is a complete onomatopoeia with town עׅיר [aìr]. The third aspect relates the colt to ‘flaming’, ‘ardent’, since they form the meanings ‘speed’ + ‘peace’. The fifth aspect is the relation with the verbs rouse oneself, awake, incite עוּר [ur]. This last aspect transmits linguistic consciousness and sub-consciousness of a journey to exaltation.
6. The wild donkey פּׅרְדָה [pirdà] is the royal animal
In the Hebrew world-view the wild donkey is differentiated from the domestic one with quite different words. There are two denotations for wild ass/wild donkey.
One is פֶּרֶד[pèred]/ פּׅרְדָה[pirdà] and the other is פֶּרֶה [père]/ פֶּרֶא[père]. The term for the royal parade animal is king’s she-mule (Bul. царското муле) פּׅרְדָת מֶלֶך [pirdàt mèleh].
In this context there are several uses – in Jeremiah, 2:24, Job, 11:12, 39:5. Isaiah, 32:14 – where the second word for wild donkey is used for mule, with the textual semantization ‘wild’, ‘natural’, uncivilized’, ‘non-monotheistic’ and ‘absence of people’.
BibleWorks4 indicates the meaning “wild donkey” for the word פֶּרֶה [père]/ פֶּרֶא [père]. The internal form of the term royal donkey/mule פֶּרֶד [pèred] is from run, run fast פֶּרֶא[perà]. On the other hand, the same root, according to Gesenius, comprises the verb carry weight, support, carry, bear פָּרָא [parà]. This word should not be confused with its homopohone – פָּרָה [parà], meaning young cow. The verb פָּרָה [parà] means carry, give birth quickly, run. Clearly, the two verbs פָּרָא [parà] and פָּרָה [parà] are close enough – in sound and meaning.
Besides signifying ‘wild’, ‘natural’, ‘uncivilized’, ‘non-monotheistic’, the wild donkey is also a sign for ‘nobleness’ and ‘royalness’. This appears in the different descriptions in 3 Kings of Solomon’s anointment as king, where the word פּׅרְדָה [pirdà] is used.
Zechariah does not use the lexeme פֶּרֶא [père], used in Solomon’s anointment as king in 1 Kings:33; 38; 44 (3 Kings, 1:33; 38; 44), yet on the other hand, in the New Testament the apostles indicate that Christ entered Jerusalem as a Jewish king, riding a mule (Bul. осле). The founders of the Hebrew monarchy – David and Solomon – prefer the mule as their ceremonial animal. The term is king’s mule מֶלֶך פּׅרְדָת [pirdàt mèleh]. Solomon’s anointment as king occurs on a king’s mule (Bul. царското муле). The word formation king’s mule מֶלֶך פּׅרְדָת [pirdàt mèleh] is a smihut-form which unequivocally indicates that the royal mule is female. The term is used in three verses telling about Solomon’s anointment as king, done while David is still alive – 1 Kings 33; 38; 44.
The king said to them, “Take with you the servants of your lord, and have my son Solomon ride on my own mule, and bring him down to Gihon. 1 Kings 1:33 (NAU)
According to the Bulgarian explanatory dictionary, муле (mule) as a general term is a cross between a donkey and a horse. The dictionary distinguishes between the concrete terms – a mule is born of a she-ass and a horse, whereas a hinny is born from a donkey and a mare (BED 1963, p. 423). In the context of the Messiah and his genealogical tree related to King David, the question of the “royal mule”/ “David’s mule” is not without significance, as well as the term “colt, born of an ass”. This term is used both in the Old and the New Testament when it needs to be specified.
All of David’s sons ride she-mules [pirdà]. Solomon’s anointment as king with such a female mule changes the spectrum of semantizations of this word: from the usual animal ridden by the king’s sons in times of peace, this kind of donkey is transformed into a royal animal.
7. The Aramaic wild donkey עָרוֹד[aròd]
The word occurs in Job 39:5.
According to Genesius, the word colt עֲיר [aìr] has an Aramaic origin, from the root Ayin-Yud-Reish and is an element of the paradigm of macro-red – macro-light עוּר [ur] to be hot, ardent, rouse oneself, awake, incite עוּר [ur]; to make hot, to heat הְעׅיר [heìr]; עׅיר [ìr] excitement.
Job’s poetic style is distinctive due to his brilliant command of Hebrew, as well as the large number of loan-words. Thus we can find the Aramaic word next to the Hebrew word in one and the same verse. This is precisely the case with the Aramaic word for wild donkey עָרוֹד [aròd], which is next to the Hebrew word פֶּרֶא [père] in Job 39:5.
Usual explanation for the many non-Hebrew words in the Book of Job, including the couple עָרוֹד [aròd] – פֶּרֶא [père] is that the use of non-Hebrew words serves poetic manipulation (Greenstein 2003; Ginsberg 2007).
The Bulgarian translations of this word and the poetical parallelism of the Aramaic and Hebrew words for wild donkey are illustrations of the correctness of Greenstein’s claim.
— There are five different Hebrew roots for terms for English Biblical foal, coat, female donkey, he-ass.
— Logical and associative relations in Hebrew, established by the polysemy of different roots of names for the donkey are untranslateable into Indo-European languages.
— From color point of view the he-donkey חֲמוֹר [hamòr] is in the area of macro-red and macro-black, while the foal of the Messiah is macro-white.
— The white she-donkeys in Judges 5:10 are a highly significant symbol because it relates to the prophecy that the Messiah will enter Jerusalem on a donkey. In this sense, the word denoting the color of the donkey is significant.
— White donkeys are related to the meanings ‘light’, ‘noon-light as something positive’, ‘ritual purity’, following the derivation of their semantics from the root, as well as from the biblical context. That is why they are the prototype of the Messiah’s donkey.
— Zechariah’s prophecy is incarnate in the gospels of the New Testament, is cited with precision by the apostles and Jesus enters Jerusalem as a Hebrew king, on a white colt, the ass’s foal.
— Kings ride mules with difficulty, but apparently this is not the case of the most important Judaic kings who are not worried to express ‘peace’ by means of this symbol.
— Kings David and Solomon choose colts “the ass’s foals” as royal animal and not the horse. From Judges, 5:10 is clear that the use of donkey or colt as an animal for riding expresses wealth, power, influence etc., but not ‘solidarity with poverty’, ‘simplicity’.
— The analysis of the extended semantics of the proto-image of Christ’s white colt – the white asses from the call to Court by Debora; the lexemes of Zechariah’s prophecy; the symbols of Jacob’s legacy for the tribe of Judah in Genesis 49; the tradition established by David and Solomon that kings should ride mules – show different levels of the relation between the New and Old Testaments.

President Trump silently affirms the Jewish Noahide Laws
Thursday, April 4, 2019
“Education Day U.S.A” has been acknowledged and affirmed by every US President, every year, since Jimmy Carter in 1978.
The joint resolution confirms the importance of “education to the lives of [the Country] and the well-being of the Nation” and celebrates the birthdate of Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. While the 1978 proclamation did not specify what sort of education was important to the nation, the 1982 proclamation by Ronald Reagan states that this education included the “eternal validity of the Seven Noahide Laws, a moral code for all of us regardless of religious faith.”
The 1991 proclamation states that the Jewish Noahide Laws are the “principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our great Nation was founded” and that it is our “responsibility to transmit these historical ethical values from our distinguished past to the generations of the future”; it also promises that “this will be reflected in an international scroll of honor signed by the President of the United States and other heads of state.”
Donald Trump has signed the Education Day U.S.A. proclamation every year of his presidency since he has been in office, yet his versions of the proclamations do not mention the Jewish Noahide Laws, only the importance of “education” and the remembrance of Rabbi Schneerson who dedicated much of his life to advancing the Noahide agenda. Even though Trump’s versions of the resolution do not mention Noahide Law, the Chabad-Lubavitch website reminds us that the Jewish Noahide Laws are the “unifying idea” of all these proclamations, including Trump’s, and are what our presidents are referring to when they say “education”. Jewish Noahide Law calls for the death of anyone practicing idolatry, blasphemy or sexual morality, it also obligates non-Jews to set up courts to carry out these executions.
Rabbi Schneerson whose birth we commemorate stated that according to Jewish law non-Jews have no other purpose than to serve Jews who are the reason for creation.
Trump’s daughter Ivanka is a high ranking Chabad-Lubavitch cultist, she prays at Rabbi Schneerson’s grave and has been blessed by Rabbis who demand non-Jews follow the Noahide Laws and refer to them as “animals.”
Seeing that his daughter is such a high ranking member of the Chabad-Lubavitch cult and that both her associations and the Education Day U.S.A. have drawn so much criticism, it is very hard to believe that Donald Trump does not understand the ramifications of his signature on these proclamations… is this treason?

The Holy Spirit calls on Jesus Christ to spread the good 📰 faith is alive:
The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. For Your mercy is great above the heavens, And Your truth reaches to the clouds.
Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
“I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey’s colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in 🍷, And his clothes in the🩸 of 🍇 .
Why is Your apparel red, And Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?
He was clothed with a robe dipped in 🩸, and His name is called The Word of God.
“Tell the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your 👑 is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ”
Then beginning with Moses and [throughout] all the [writings of the] prophets, He explained and interpreted for them the things referring to Himself [found] in all the Scriptures. Then Jesus asked the two disciples,
“Why can’t you understand?”
“How can you be so slow to believe all that the prophets said?”
“You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me!”
“For if you believed and relied on [the Scriptures written by] Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me [personally].”
“There is another who testifies about me, and I know that the testimony he gives about me is true.”
“Who gives the wild donkey its freedom?”
“Who untied its ropes?”
Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of 🫒, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them,
“Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loosethem and bring them to Me.”
“This dear woman, a daughter of Abraham, has been held in bondage by Satan for eighteen years.”
“Isn’t it right that she be released, even on the Sabbath?”
the Lord replied.
“Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it to water?
When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her,
“Woman, you are freed from your disability.”
Then he laid his hands on her, and instantly she was restored and began to glorify God.
This took place to fulfill the prophecy that said,
“Tell the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your King is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ”
When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, she turned off the path and went into a field. So Balaam beat her to return her to the path. But Balaam was stopped from his mad course when his donkey rebuked him with a human voice. Then the LORD opened the donkey’s mouth, and she said to Balaam,
“What have I done to you that you have beaten me these three times?”
Balaam answered the donkey,
“You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.”
So the donkey said to Balaam,
“Am I not your donkey on which you have ridden, ever since I became yours, to this day?”
“Was I ever disposed to do this to you?”
And he said,
Then the LORD opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Angel of the LORD standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand; and he bowed his head and fell flat on his face.
Indeed the LORD has proclaimed To the end of the world:
“Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Surely your salvation is coming; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.’ ”
“Behold, I am coming soon, and My reward is with Me, to give to each one according to what he has done. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star.”
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.”
LADY OF AMERICA
The Holy Spirit calls on Jesus Christ to spread the good 📰 faith is alive:
Could it be possible part of the Treaty <ABRAHAM ACCORDS> is the marriage of Ivanka & Jared?
Could it be Trump became President as a favor to Bill Clinton?
<QUANTUM COMPUTER + COVID VACCINE = NWO CONTROL OF THE HUMAN RACE> THE BEAST SYSTEM AND CERN
GENERIC FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO COVID-19
Now read some of these news articles….Do you see how scripture lines up with Trump’s actions? We cannot deny the truth in scripture, even when it comes to Trump. If we know the truth and choose to be ignorant not only will we lose our freedom but we will have to answer God on judgment day….
Therefore, I choose to speak out, but what can we do to help our brothers and sisters to 👀 and to 👂 the truth? 🤔 We have to teach them the scriptures related to the many antichrists and the false prophet so they understand what qualifies an individuals as such. Then they have to use their free will to decide for themselves who they will follow… GOD OR TRUMP???
I cannot ignore the mountains of evidence piling up against Trump that I didn’t see before, see he blinded me with his light and bc I wanted to put my faith and trust in him to save America I was sold on his marketing program. I still have such a hard time believing he is the antichrist.
What about how he talks about enjoying the show and get your 🍿 out, to Qanon, to the MOONIE cult, the entertainment industry, the money he has, he is going to provide us a show alright and the theatrical release will b like a 🎥 in real time, with magic like Chris Angel, like a holographic image of Trump jumping out of a Turkey…like back in the day the Greeks inventions to create illusions…fake supernatural miracles… 🦁 and 🐅 and 🐻 oh my….we r off to see the 🧙🏻♂️ , the wonderful 🧙♀️ of oz…this is the revival everyone is preaching
“IT WILL BE BIG REALLY BIG” IN MY NEXT POST I WILL SHARE THE VISION I HAD….
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable [for He does not withdraw what He has given, nor does He change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call].
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run [their very best to win], but only one receives the prize?
Run [your race] in such a way that you may seize the prize and make it yours!
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
I have also spoken by the prophets, And have multiplied visions; I have given symbols through the witness of the prophets.
Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the keeper of the vineyard.”
I went in response to a revelation, and in a private meeting with the reputed leaders, I explained to them the gospel that I’m proclaiming to the gentiles. I did this because I was afraid that I was running or had run my life’s race for nothing.
I turned and I saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift , neither to a mighty man the battle, neither to the wise bread and not to the learned riches, and not to the intelligent glory, because time and mishap happens to them all.
And I turned myself to behold wisdom, and madness, and folly: for what can the man do that cometh after the king?
even that which hath been already done.
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.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
I devoted myself to search for understanding and to explore by wisdom everything being done under heaven. I soon discovered that God has dealt a tragic existence to the human race.
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.
Above all, fear the LORD and worship him faithfully with all your heart; consider the great things he has done for you.
And He said to man,
“Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.'”
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts gain rich understanding. His praise endures forever!
The Holy Spirit calls on Jesus Christ to spread the good 📰 faith is alive:
When our word αλς (hals) is masculine or neutral it describes salt in its various forms, whereas when the same word is feminine it describes the sea. Some scholars insist that these two faces of our noun are really two whole separate words with different etymological heritage.
What is relevant, however, is that the transition between genders has a huge function in the Bible, even to the point that it becomes its own character. Both Jacob and Jesus started out as males but their “bodies” became female (Israel and the Body of Christ, respectively). When we reverse the genders of the riddle of Samson (Judges 14:8), which speaks of the feminine bee (דברה, deborah) in a masculine lion (ארי, ary), we get the masculine word (דבר, dabar) in the feminine manger אריה (‘urya), which sounds a lot like Christmas (LUKE 2:7).
◦ Together with the preposition συν (sun), meaning together or with: the verb συναλιζω (sunalizo), meaning to jointly salt; to be jointly purified and made to last (ACTS 1:4 only).
Together with the preposition παρα (para), meaning near or nearby: the adjective παραλιος (paralios), meaning near the sea. This adjective is often used substantively, in which case it denotes the cost or shore (LUKE 6:17 only).
• At that time the proverbial Virgin was Pallas Athena (see our article on Mary), whose tyrannical government had made way for the great democratic experiment starting in 510 BC (quite possibly inspired by the Phoenicians). Essential to that great new thing was the Assembly, which was open to all citizens. The Greek word for Assembly is εκκλεσια (ekklesia), which in the New Testament is routinely (but inappropriately) translated with “church”. Our adjective occurs in LUKE 6:17 only, and not a soul in Luke’s original audience would have missed the pun.
The masculine noun αλς (hals) means salt (see above), and its identical feminine twin αλς (hals) means sea, or the Big Salt. It needs to be noted that although the sea might look like a big wash of water, it’s in fact a bone dry desert much more akin a sand desert than a fresh water lake. The ancients were fully aware of the hydrological cycle (Ecclesiastes 1:7, 11:3, Isaiah 55:10-11)
When our word αλς (hals) is masculine it means “extractor” (or salt) and when it’s used feminine it means “extracted” (the sea). The feminine version of our noun doesn’t occur independently in the New Testament but from it derive the following words that do occurs in the New Testament:
• Together with the verb αισσω (aisso), which also doesn’t occur independently in the New Testament, and means to dart or rush (of the swell of a sword, the fluttering of a horse’s manes, darting birds, zipping arrows or beams of light, and so on): the noun αιγιαλος (aigialos), which denote the sea coast or beach. How a beach came to be known as a sea-dart is a bit of a mystery,
describes the fresh water Sea of Galilee (MATTHEW 4:18), which indicates that our word does not refer to the taste of salt but rather to the function of it: to collect and purify. This also explains why the new earth won’t have any sea (REVELATION 21:1): there will be nothing to purify. From this noun in turn derive:
◦ Together with the adverb δις (dis) means twice: the adjective διθαλασσος (dithalassos), denoting the confluence or meeting point of two seas.
◦ Again together with the preposition παρα (para), meaning near or nearby: the adjective παραθαλασσιος (parathalassios), meaning near the sea, by the seaside (MATTHEW 4:13 only).
Haman said moreover,
Yea, Esther the queen did let no man come in with the king unto the banquet that she had prepared but myself; and to morrow am I invited unto her also with the king.
And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
But they paid no attention [they disregarded the invitation, treating it with contempt] and went away, one to his farm, another to his business.
Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.
For by the grace [of God] given to me I say to everyone of you not to think more highly of himself [and of his importance and ability] than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has apportioned to each a degree of faith [and a purpose designed for service].
By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
Now, however, that truth has been brought out into the open through the writings of the prophets; and by the command of the eternal God it is made known to all nations, so that all may believe and obey.
For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,
And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
The Divine Spirit says….
“The word “Trinity” or “Rapture” is NOT written in scripture; this is false doctrine which requires the boldness of the preacher to correct this error. Moreover, the statutes of Jesus beaten, naked, and dead hanging on the cross is shameful to him. This idol statute creates a image of Jesus’ shameful death instead of life after death “The Resurrection” portraying an everlasting shameful 💀 .
This is a pagan creation that places a curse on the name of Jesus Christ. Likewise the worship of Jesus’ mother Mary is yet another curse the pagans placed on the Earth to offset the prayers to Christ, hence, preventing the miracles of the apostle’s power to heal.
This spell must be broken so all prayers can be heard.
Jesus must be declared to the world as…
“THE KING OF KINGS, LORD OF LORD”
to the world by Donald Trump,
for in ☝️ hour in ☝️ day,
the curse will break and the people will be changed.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
Trump has been called by God to do this task and if he will not then the people will be released from the captivity of the antichrist and be transformed from hate to love.
And he said,
Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.
So they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, that they might seize on His words, in order to deliver Him to the power and the authority of the governor.
For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
🌹❤️In Jesus’ name. Amen and Amen…LET THE TRUTH SET U FREE
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

WHAT DOES ZERO MEAN ANYWAY? WE DO NOT START COUNTING 0.1.2.3 INSTEAD WE COUNT 188.8.131.52 WHAT ABOUT LEAP YEAR? Think on it bc there was a leap year in 2020…r we therefore missing a year in our calendar…who knows why I am thinking about this and Enoch’s clock….
Well let’s examine ZERO 🤩
An argument at which the value of a function vanishes.
A sight setting that enables a firearm to shoot on target.
Having no measurable or otherwise determinable value.
To adjust (an instrument or a device) to zero value.
An ordinal number indicating an initial point or origin.
To aim or concentrate firepower on an exact target location.
the symbol 0, indicating an absence of quantity or magnitude; nought. Former name: cipher
the temperature, pressure, etc, that registers a reading of zero on a scale
the cardinal number between +1 and –1
a person or thing of no significance; nonentity
of or designating a hypothetical morphological element that is posited as existing by analogy with some regular pattern in a language but has no physical realization:
The numerical symbol 0, representing a number that when added to another number leaves the original number unchanged.
Did You Know?Zero is not nothing! It is a number that stands for nothing, and this is an important distinction. In many ways, zero is the most important of all numbers. When zero is added to or subtracted from a number, it leaves the number at its original value. Zero thus makes negative numbers possible. A negative number added to its positive counterpart always equals zero. Zero is also essential to representing many numbers, such as 203 and 1024. In these numbers zero serves as a placeholder in the system known as positional notation. Thus in 203, there are two hundreds, zero tens, and three ones. In other words, zero indicates that the value of the tens place is zero. In 1024, zero indicates that the value of the hundreds place is zero. When you think about it, if we didn’t have zero, we wouldn’t have hundreds, thousands, or millions in our number system.
Zero could equal error like the following 👽 IT geeks below….TAKE NOTES BC THESE R THE ALIEN GEEKS THAT WORK AT YOUR LOCAL BESTBUY…
Bill Gates’ house is built into the hillside overlooking the waters of Lake Washington in the city of Medina, WA. The property is located just outside of Seattle and is close to Redmond where Microsoft is located. The 66,000 square foot mansion sits on 5-acres and took over seven years to build at a cost of $63.2 million dollars. The property was purchased in 1988 for $2,050,000 dollars, according to public records. Taxes on the property in 2009 were $1.063 million dollars with a total assessed value of $147.5 million dollars.
Nicknamed Xanadu 2.0 (after the Citizen Kane estate), Mr. Gates’ home is only partially visible from satellite imagery, as some of the compound is built directly into the side of the hill. Only about 20% of the home is family living space, where there are 8 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms. It features a 2,100 square foot library, which has showcased Leonardo da Vinci’s 16th-century Codex Leicester that Mr. Gates purchased in 1994 for $30.8 million dollars. There is a 1,000 square foot dining room, and an 84 step staircase that guests descend from the drop-off area on the top of the hill down to the ground floor. You can see the large windows of his 60 foot long indoor/outdoor swimming pool that features an underwater sound system all the way from the lake (guests can swim from the inside to the outside by swimming underneath a glass wall). The property also features a 2,500 square foot gym and a 23-car garage.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
Ezekiel 4:16 Then He told me, “Son of man, I am going to cut off the supply of food in Jerusalem. They will anxiously eat bread rationed by weight, and in despair they will drink water by measure. 💉💉💉💉💉💉
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

A Joyful Return to Zion
A Song of Ascents
A Song of degrees
When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our 👄 filled with laughter, and our 👅 with singing: then said they among the heathen,
“The LORD hath done great things for them.”
The LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south. They that sow in 😭 shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weeps, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
2 TURTLE 🕊🕊, And a partridge in a 🍐 🌳 🎰
Peter went out following the 😇 . He did NOT realize that what was being done by the 😇 was REAL, but thought he was seeing a vision. So Noah did this; according to all that God commanded him, that is what he did. Mary then said to the servants,
“Do whatever Jesus tells you to do.”
So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people 😢 to Pharaoh for 🥖 . Then Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians,
“Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, do.”
You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I 👂 from My Father I have made known to you. It shall be said in that day,
“Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
Fear not, O land; Be glad and rejoice, For the LORD has done marvelous things!
“You will have plenty to eat and be satisfied And praise the name of the LORD your God Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame.”
🎶, O daughter of Zion; shout, O 🇮🇱 ; be glad and rejoice with all the ❤️, O daughter of Jerusalem. Great deliverance giveth he to his 👑; and shows mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
Restore our fortunes, LORD, As the streams in the South. The LORD your God will restore your fortunes [in your return from exile], and have compassion on you, and will gather you together again from all the peoples (nations) where He has scattered you.
“Behold, I am with you and will keep [careful watch over you and guard] you wherever you may go, and I will bring you back to this [promised] land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
The LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. They who sow in 😭 shall reap with joyful 🎵.
And the RANSOMED of the LORD shall RETURN, and come to ZION with 🎵🎶 and EVERLASTINGLY 🤩 upon their heads: they shall obtain 🤩 and gladness, and ☹️ and sighing shall flee away.
For the 🐑 which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto LIVING fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all 😭 from their 👀.
God shall wipe away all 😭 from their 👁👁; and there shall be no more ☠️, neither ☹️, nor 😢, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Let the REDEEMED of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
Zion 💎 shall be redeemed with ⚖️, and her converts with righteousness. You [O God] will increase the nation, You will multiply their joy; They will rejoice before You Like the joy and jubilation of the harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil [of victory].
Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his LIFE a RANSOM for many. They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion 💎 appears before God.
The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say,
“Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endures for ever and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the 🏡 of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first.”
saith the LORD.
“Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.”
He shewed me a pure river of 💧 of LIFE, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the 🐑.
“O you who dwell by many waters, Abundant in treasures, Your end has come, The measure of your covetousness.”
Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare,
“Rivers of LIVING water will flow from his ❤️.’”
“👀, I am coming soon! Blessed are those who obey the words of prophecy written in this 📜.”
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my REWARDis with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”
“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”
“I, Jesus, have sent My 😇to testify to you these things in the ⛪️. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning ⭐️.”
And the Spirit and the bride say,
“Come!” And let him who hears say,
“Come!” And let him who thirsts come.
Whoever desires, let him take the 💦 OF LIFE FREELY.
Thus saith the LORD;
“Stand in the court of the LORD’S 🏡, and 🗣 unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD’S 🏡, all the words that I command thee to 🗣 unto them; diminish NOT a word:
It may be that they will 👂 and everyone will turn from his wickedness, so that I may relent and reverse [My decision concerning] the disaster which I am planning to do to them because of their malevolent deeds.”
And you shall say to them,
“Thus says the LORD:
“If you will not listen to Me, to walk in My law which I have set before you, to heed the words of My servants the prophets whom I sent to you, both rising up early and sending them (but you have not heeded), then I will make this 🏡 like Shiloh (particle of exclusion, which absolutely negates whatever follows: “not my people” means “absolutely totally not my people” and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the 🌍.”
So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the LORD. But when Jeremiah had finished his message, saying everything the LORD had told him to say, the priests and prophets and all the people at the Temple mobbed him.
“Why have you prophesied in the name of the LORD saying, ‘This house will be like Shiloh [after the ark of the LORD had been taken by our enemies] and this city [Jerusalem] will be desolate, without inhabitant’?”
And all the people were gathered around Jeremiah in the [outer area of the] 🏡 of the LORD. When the princes of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king’s house unto the 🏡 of the LORD, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the LORD’S house.
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the 🌎.
THE DIVINE POWER OF MY MIND
Your eyes saw me when I was inside the womb. All the days ordained for me were recorded in your scroll before one of them came into existence.
The word of the LORD came to me:
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
“Sovereign LORD, I don’t know how to speak; I am too young.”
The LORD said to me,
“Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ But go to whomever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And do thou gird up thy loins, and stand up, and speak all the words that I shall command thee: be not afraid of their face, neither be thou alarmed before them; for I am with thee to deliver thee.”
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. And within an hour he was preaching in the synagogue of the Jews about Yeshua, that he is The Son of God.
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me,
“Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.”
Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples,
“I have seen the Lord! ”
And she told them what he had said to her.

Think of all the 💰💵💸💴💶💲🪙💷 that has been made from the usage of the name of Jesus Christ…
PARDON ANY SPELLING ISSUES I FID NOT HAVE TIME TO EDIT THIS POST 🪶🕊🌴🌹🌾🎰🧩🎯
I am bothered by self proclaimed Prophets/Apostles who start their Message on YouTube by saying… “A REVIVAL THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN or NO ONE CAN STOP WHAT IS COMING or FOR MY PARTNERS or FOR THE CHURCH CORPORATION or 5 FOLD MINISTRIES or BY NOV GOD IS GOING TO FO GREAT THINGS or NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IS COMING BUT IT IS GREAT… my list goes on and on. I watched Dutch Sheets give “A prophecy and A Dream” this week and I have been listening to him faithfully since 03.06.2020, the day the World STOPPED…Why is it I hear repeated babbling from him?
Why is it at the start of “THE GREATEST REVIVAL IN HISTORY” would he start of by playing a video to entice people to pay money to go to “Kingdom University” which is a school Dutch invented to bring people up to spread with getting rid of old wine skins to prepare for the new wine skins when his message is flawed by his lack in his ability to discern worldly thoughts from heavenly thoughts…
TO PAY MONEY FOR WORLDLY THOUGHTS TOTALLY PISSES JESUS OFF….Well he will answer to God on judgment day for teaching false doctrine. I hoped in Dutch bc from time to time the Holy Ghost comes out of him but faith without works is dead, and by the looks of the fruit on his tree he cannot pass the test as God looks down from Heaven searching for those who can hear him….CAN U TEACH A DOG NEW TRICKS? ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE…
On the same note…I have been watching Robin Bullock, Kent Christmas, Perry Stone, and Hank Kunneman, and Tim Sheets since the world stopped as well, I find the same to be true of these “Prophets/Apostles”. Same with Chuck Pierce and Ken Malone. However, since they all team up together to share the same messages each week (which I find to be a disaster as how can u all hear the same exact message at the exact same time), adding their own personal revelations to keep their followers listening…is deceptive to the people they preach to, AGAIN WORLDLY THOUGHTS.
If these men truly hear the voice of God…then why do they have to go to their books they have written to give a message to God’s people or why do they teach the same Bible stories over and over again to prophecy what God says. I would expect a Prophet of God to be able to speak or write at the level of say Isaiah or Jeremiah or Daniel etc. Further they are teaching others to prophesy when they lack wisdom and understanding, seems backwards to me.
I do, however, make an exception for Tim Sheets and Kent Christmas. Tim Sheets is the closest to Heaven out of all preachers, prophets, apostles etc… He can see and hear the Heavens but the influence of those around him whom are jealous of his supernatural abilities “to be a seer of all dimensions” is hinder by them. The same is true of Kent Christmas. Tim and Kent have unique gifts, but they still let the world influence their minds.
Okay, I am done with what God has observed while looking to and fro for those who have 1000% faith and fear him more than the world…so with that I yield back…
The Most High says, “Prophets, why do u still not understand the mystery of “a daughter of Abraham” mentioned only once in all of scripture, are u blind and deaf? Repent and humble your self to my voice that is in the midst of HER! Or will u be like the Jews who would not accept Jesus as the Messiah missing the day of your visitation? She is here to bridge the gap between all generations, just think of it while u sit back and make worldly plans since u know not the DIVINE PLAN OF HEAVEN!”
Is not God in the height of heaven?
Behold the height of the stars, how high they are!
Who is the wise man who may understand this [without any doubt]?
To whom has the mouth of the LORD spoken, so that he may declare it?
Why is the land ruined, laid waste like a wilderness, so that no one passes through?
The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
Who among you will give ear to this?
Who will listen and hear for the time to come?
From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them,
“I have seen the Lord!”
Then she gave them his message.
The LORD who rules over all says to the people of Jerusalem:
“Do not listen to what those prophets are saying to you. They are filling you with false hopes. They are reporting visions of their own imaginations, not something the LORD has given them to say.”
For thus saith the Lord of hoses the God of Israel:
“Let not your prophets that are in the midst of you, and your diviners deceive you: and give no heed to your dreams which you dream”
“For they prophesy falsely to you in my name: and I have not sent them.”
“Your prophets have seen for you False and deceptive visions; They have not uncovered your iniquity, To bring back your captives, But have envisioned for you false prophecies and delusions.”
“I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’
“Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error].”
All these regulations refer to what is destined to perish by being used up; they are human commands and doctrines.
See to it, then, that no one enslaves you by means of the worthless deceit of human wisdom, which comes from the teachings handed down by human beings and from the ruling spirits of the universe, and not from Christ.
For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth; Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of the LORD God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of the LORD.
Then Mary said,
“My soul praises the greatness of the Lord! With all my heart, I will praise the LORD.”
To The Most High….
Those who fear You will see me and rejoice, for I put my hope in Your word. Let all who are helpless, listen and be glad.The humble will see and rejoice. You who seek God, let your hearts be revived!
Yours Truly, A Daughter of Abraham
In Jesus Name….AMEN AND AMEN

ABBA…Answer my ☎️…Tell me of the Great Mothers of the Holy Scripture that I may speak of them and honor their names. My ❤️ is the sacred καρδια (kardia) rhythm of a new song for a memorial to Mary Magdalene
“The Kingdom of God does not come w/ what is observed.”
“Nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’”
“For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
“I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.
“It has been given to you to know the secret of the Kingdom of God, but to those others, it is spoken in an allegory, that while seeing they will not perceive, and when hearing, they will not understand.”
“It has been given to you to know the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it has not been given.
The vision of all is become to you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying,
“Read this, I pray thee!”
and he saith,
“I cannot; for it is sealed!”
Wherefore the Lord said,
“As these people draw near me with their 👄 and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their ❤️ far from me, their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder:
The wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. It is written,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
Where is the wise man (philosopher)?
Where is the scribe (scholar)?
Where is the debater (logician, orator) of this age?
Has God not exposed the foolishness of this world’s wisdom?
Since the world through all its [earthly] wisdom failed to recognize God, God in His wisdom was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached [regarding salvation] to save those who believe [in Christ and welcome Him as Savior].
The Word became 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…..

“God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.”
“Let me not see the death of the child.”
Hannah prayed, and said,
“O my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood by you here, praying to the LORD.
“My heart rejoices in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.”
“God has taken away my reproach.”
“Because the LORD hath heard that I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also.”
“Now I will praise the LORD.”

The Widow Woman said,
“Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in your mouth is the truth.”
“The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel.”
“Let my lord king David live for ever.”
The Shunammite Woman said,
“As the LORD lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you.”
“Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God.”
“As the LORD lives, and as my lord the king lives, surely in whatever place my lord the king shall be, whether in death or life, even there also your servant will be.”
“This is how the Lord has dealt with me in the days when He looked with favor on me, to take away my disgrace among men.”
“My soul magnifies the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.”
“He has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. He who is mighty has done great things for me, And holy is His name.”
Now we understand that You know all things and that You have no need for anyone to question You. Because of this, we believe that You came from God. O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand:
For what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the [height of the] heavens, You who have done great things;
O God, who is like You, [who is Your equal]?
Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.
To us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
Where is the receiver?
Where is he that counted the towers?
“Let it be according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like the LORD our God.”
Who would not fear You, O King of the nations?
For this is Your rightful due. For among all the wise men of the nations, And in all their kingdoms, There is none like You. Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, you that lift me up from the gates of death:
That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
Who may go out before them and go in before them, who may lead them out and bring them in, that the congregation of the LORD may not be like sheep which have no shepherd?
💥I will come down and talk with you there. I will take of the Spirit that is upon you and will put the same upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you may not bear it yourself alone.💥
And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.
behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith.
Who is the one who is victorious and overcomes the world? It is the one who believes and recognizes the fact that Jesus is the Son of God.
For length of days and years of life [worth living] And tranquility and prosperity [the wholeness of life’s blessings] they will add to you.
Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people:
Who can judge this thy people, that is so great?
To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life.
And who is sufficient for these things?
My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Until the time that his word [of prophecy regarding his brothers] came true, The word of the LORD tested and refined him. The heart of the King is like a stream of waters in the hands of God, and he turns it wherever he chooses.

Would this not be the greatest deception man has ever known? Have you thought this could not be possible? What does God think about that? If you over look the fact that Trump spoke at ThinkTank 2022 on the 20th year anniversary of 911….praising a cult that promotes one world religion and calls Jesus a heretic who did not fulfill his mission, oh yes, and America has not fulfilled God’s plan. My friends this is VERY SERIOUS 🧐, what am I trying to say?
If you want to know where all this communistic ideology is coming from look up “Unification Church and Universal Peace Federation” Thousands of leaders around the world, including 16 countries of the United Nations…Trump, Pence, and Pompeo spoke at this event…you cannot ignore the fact that Trump has a coin made of his face next to King Cyrus and he is going to build the 3rd Temple…
My mind does not want to believe Trump is evil in his heart and has mesmerized the entire world with his charm….u need to go deep within “THE TRUTH WILL SET U FREE, even though it is painful”
IF THIS IS NOT TRUE THEN TRUMP HAS BEEN KIDNAPPED AND FORCED TO SPEAK AT THIS EVENT OR SOMETHING IS CONTROLLING HIM LIKE A AI VACCINE IDK BUT I TRUST IN JESUS NOT TRUMP… I PRAY I AM WRONG BUT DEEP DOWN I KNOW I AM RIGHT, not to mention the left and the right are playing us like a moi e script bc they r all on the same side….we r paying money for our own destruction what a paradigm!
I applied mine ❤️ to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways”
saith the LORD.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. Because God wanted￼to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.
People swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument….
Brothers and sisters,
I speak in terms of human relations: even though a last will and testament is just a human covenant, yet when it has been signed and made legally binding, no one sets it aside or adds to it [modifying it in some way]. But God is one of a kind.
“Who can make him change his mind?”
He does whatever he wants! The LORD Almighty has sworn,
“Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen.”
“Where are your wise men now?”
Let them show you and make known what the LORD Almighty has planned against Egypt.
Tell us, you idols, what is going to happen (your evidence). Tell us what the former things were, so that we may consider them and know their final outcome.
Or declare to us the things to come,
Who then is like Me?
Let him say so!
Let him declare his case before Me, since I established an ancient people.
Let him foretell the things to come, and what is to take place.
Speak up and present your case–yes, let them take counsel together.
Who foretold this long ago?
Who announced it from ancient times?
Was it not I, the LORD?
There is no other God but Me, a righteous God and Savior; there is none but Me.
“I declare the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and all My good pleasure I will accomplish.’ I foretold the former things long ago; they came out of My mouth and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.”
Gather the nations together!
Assemble the peoples of the world!
Which of their idols has ever foretold such things?
Which can predict what will happen tomorrow?
Where are the witnesses of such predictions?
Who can verify that they spoke the truth?
“Look, I know what you’re thinking. I know the schemes you plot against me, They come together to spy on me— watching my every step, eager to kill me. They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul. The LORD knows people’s thoughts; he knows they are worthless!”
But they do not know the LORD’s thoughts or understand his plan. These nations don’t know that he is gathering them together to be beaten and trampled like sheaves of grain on a threshing floor.
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! Watch, for the day of the LORD is coming when your possessions will be plundered right in front of you!”
“For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace, and all the arrogant (proud, self-righteous, haughty), and every evildoer shall be stubble; and the day that is coming shall set them on fire,”
says the LORD of hosts,
“so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.”
Children, it is the last hour [the end of this age]; and just as you heard that the antichrist is coming [the one who will oppose Christ and attempt to replace Him], even now many antichrists (false teachers) have appeared, which confirms our belief that it is the last hour.
They shall fear You As long as the sun and moon endure, Throughout all generations.
In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favor is as a cloud of the latter rain. He shall come down like rain upon the grass before mowing, Like showers that water the earth. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
The Rulers of the nations were turned to the God of Abraham because the dominions of the Earth are God’s, and he is greatly exalted.
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Hear, my people, and I shall speak to you, and Israel, I shall testify to you.
Our God is coming; He will not be silent! Devouring fire precedes Him, and a storm rages around Him. The brightness before him scattered the thick ☁️ , with hail stones and ⚡️ of 🔥 .
says the Lord GOD,
“I will make a violent wind break out in My wrath, and there will be in My anger an overwhelming rain and great hailstones to destroy [that wall] in wrath.”
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
And there was in it the golden place of incense and The Ark of the Covenant, all overlaid with gold, and it had a pot of gold in which was manna and the Rod of Aaron which budded, and The Tablets of The Covenant. The LORD will send forth the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies. Daniel said,
“I kept looking in the night visions, And behold, on the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days And was presented before Him.”
Jesus said to him,
“You have [in fact] said it; but more than that I tell you [regardless of what you do with Me now], in the future you will see [Me revealed as] THE SON OF MAN SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.”
“I am; and you will [all] see THE SON OF MAN SEATED [with authority] AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER (the Father), and COMING WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.”
When we told you about the power and the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, we were not telling clever stories someone had made up. But with our own eyes we saw his true greatness.
And when I came to you, brothers and sisters, proclaiming to you the testimony of God [concerning salvation through Christ], I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom [no lofty words of eloquence or of philosophy as a Greek orator might do];
for I made the decision to know nothing [that is, to forego philosophical or theological discussions regarding inconsequential things and opinions while] among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified [and the meaning of His redemptive, substitutionary death and His resurrection].
But I will never brag about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of his cross, the world is dead as far as I am concerned, and I am dead as far as the world is concerned.
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed in a way that awakens more faith]. As it is written and forever remains written, “
“THE JUST and UPRIGHT SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”
In Jesus’ name…AMEN AND AMEN

MAY THE LORD BE WITH YOU
Sophia breaks free and ascends back up to the true light of life, raising humanity with her ever so slightly. But she refuses to abandon the sad world of humans, and so she divides herself, keeping a part below, ever present and available for the enlightenment of all.
One Woman, Many Names
Sophia ends up being the giver of wisdom in so many forms: She is Shakti in Sanskrit, the powerful Hindu personification of feminine wisdom, and the personal and collective linking soul as atman, realized in the transcendent state of samadhi (Gnosis). She is the compassionate boddhisatva (Avalokiteshvara) in Buddhism, returning to light the path to nirvana (Gnosis); personified by the deity Guanyin. She is both Mother Mary, in her ascendant form, and Mary Magdalene, as the Earthly companion of the Christ potential in Christian Gnosticism. In Jungian psychology, she is the unifying power (“individuation”) of both the feminine and masculine archetypes, anima and animus, and of the lower self of the psyche with the higher spiritual self (Gnosis).
So you see, Sophia really gets around; or as my late uncle (by marriage), the great Jungian psychologist and philosopher, James Hillman put it:
She is the Sophia of wisdom, the Maria of compassion, the Persephone of destruction, compelling Necessity and Fate, and the Muse.
Modern Psychological Understanding
What may be most remarkable about the myth of Sophia, is the way it foreshadows‒and even predetermines‒what we think of as modern psychological understanding. Carl Jung recognized it as a myth of reflection that reflected collective and individual psychology – not just as the metaphor of following “God’s reflection” down into the abyss as an act of necessary self-centeredness and hubris, eventually leading to a humble redemption; Jung also recognized the myth of Sophia as the precursor of a many-layered structural pathology of both our individual search for health and wholeness, and of the cultural and spiritual potential of humankind. He saw the myth as an illuminating structure, which, when shined on the collective unconscious, could guide the realization of human spiritual evolution; and the metaphor as what Joseph Campbell called, “a psychologically affective image transparent to transcendence.”
Finding the Way Back Up
So don’t be afraid to share a dance with Sophia – she’s quite a girl, I promise. Allow her to take you to that place down across the tracks that we all must visit, where we become painfully separated from our true potential, and exiled from what we are really capable of becoming. From there, she can show you the way back up, the way to get in touch with your divinely feminine soul (the soul of the world), and unify it with the willful (but powerful and promising) masculine aspect of ego. Then, the separation becomes a matrimonial solution, where you may discover that the myth is the means to learning the whole secret – of you, of me, of us, and of a whole world.
Those favored by the grace of Sophia may devote their lives to offering active service in the public arena, or, again, they may simply bring the compassionate light of Sophia to bear upon the private human tasks of their daily lives.
