The Handwriting On The Wall

      The hand of Adam, the spiritual wall that protects Israel, wrote the judgment against Belshazzar, the grandson of, Nebuchadnezzar, the last king of Babylon, after he drank from the holy vessels that came from the Temple in Jerusalem.

 

               Colossians, Chapter 2

12b      [But the Christ child] woke up [again within Jesus] when [John] baptized [him], whereby [Jesus], through faith in God and the energy of God that is active [in this world, stood up again after] he died, [because God] woke up [the Christ child within him before he was crucified] and

15a      Publicly exhibited [his spiritual] victory [over Satan’s authority] within himself [by standing up again after he died],

14a      [Thereby] obliterating [the judgment that] the hand [of God wrote on the wall of our soul, when we violated the Law that] is against us  because it is contrary to [our nature] . . . . (ATB)

 

       How can a judgment on a Babylonian king apply to Israel?

 

               Daniel, Chapter 5

2  Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.

3  Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.

4  They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.

5  In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.

KJV

 

       The Scripture says that the government of Israel would never depart from Judah (Gen 49:10), but the royal house of Judah became so evil that Jehovah sent them into captivity in Babylon (2 Ki 24:15-16).

 

       Abraham, the progenitor of Israel, is a descendant of Shem, Noah’s first-born son, and Nimrod, the founder of Babylon is the son of Cush, the eldest son of Ham, Noah’s second-born son.

 

      When the royal house of Judah failed, for all intents and purposes, Shem failed in that generation. So Jehovah sent Nebuchadnezzar, a descendant of Shem’s younger brother, Ham, who was righteous in his generation,a to punish Judah. Jehovah sent Judah into captivity to protect them from total destruction because of their sins, until a new generation of repentant Judeans was born in Babylon (as recorded in the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah).

 

       Cyrus granted Judah the freedom to return to Israel in 538 B.C., one year after the fall of Babylon in 539 B.C. This was the same time period during which judgment was pronounced upon Belshazzar for profaning the holy vessels (Dan 5:23) which, apparently, Nebuchadnezzar was to guard until they would returned to the temple.

 

       Belshazzar, the grandson of Nebuchadnezzar, inherited Nebuchadnezzar’s regency over Judahb while they were in captivity, but that regency ended when Belshazzar violated his office by profaning the holy vessels that were under his care. Babylon, the protective covering that Jehovah placed over Judah until the time of Israel’s restoration, was lifted when Belshazzar was found guilty of the same crimes as Judah (Dan 5:24-27), and the same judgment that was upon Judah, fell upon Babylon:

 

       MENE, God has numbered [your merits]

 

       MENE, God has numbered [your sins], and has ended your kingdom, (1 Ki 11:31)

 

       TEKEL, thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting (Jer 22:30)

 

       UPHARSIN, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians (1 Ki 12:21-24).

 

aDespite the King James and its sister versions of Scripture, Ham was a hero who sounded the alarm when he saw that Noah, his father, had been seduced, thus, jeopardizing Jehovah’s plan to restore righteousness to the creation.

 

bThe worship of Marduk the main god of ancient Babylon, is compared favorably to monotheism (http://www.ancientneareast.net/mesopotamian-religion/marduk/), and the writer could find no reference to human sacrifice, or any other vile practice. In addition, ancient Babylonian religion is based upon the Code of Hammurabi (http://www.history.com/topics/ancient-history/hammurabi) a set of righteous laws that resemble the laws of the Old Testament.

 

     Tradition says that Judah’s interment in Babylon corrupted the religion of the Judean captives, but the truth is that Jehovah sent Judah into captivity for offering their living children as burnt sacrifices to Ba’al (Ez 16:20-21).

 

     Question: Does the Babylonian Talmud, which blasphemes Jesus Christ, represent the religion of ancient Babylon, or is it a record of Judean Ba’al worship that began to be written during the Judean captivity?

    Disciple,

    Today they do not claim to know the Father. They worship Adonai, the Name of God associated with Malchut, the female.

    In addition, Jehovah told Moses that he appeared to Abraham as Shaddai, the Name of God associated with Yesaod.

    Jehovah revealed himself as Jehovah only to Moses, and according to the Jews, no one up to this day has attained to The place that Moses attained to.

    Another witness to this truth is that the Jews are still on a lunar (female) calendar and observe Rosh HaKodesh, the new moon.

    Jehovah is the Name of God associated with Binah (the Shekinah, whose attribute is understanding which manifests as grace, unmerited favor), his inner, female dimension, who is his active energy (by which he does his works in this world). But Binah comes with judgment (Gevurah) because we cannot receive understanding of spiritual truth unless our fallen nature (the First Adam) is forced under the authority of Christ Jesus (the Second Adam).

    Jehovah’s favor is most expressed towards us when he descends into Tiferet, the second Sefirah of the middle column, where his color turns to a beautiful shade of green (life) because in that position he is harmonized with Binah (yellow), Gevurah (red) Tiferet (blue) and Chesed (white).

    At this time we are waiting for the Shekinah, the inner dimension of Jehovah, to descend into this world and join herself to Christ, her Son, in his people. This union increases the Shekinah into Elohim (God) and Christ into Christ Jesus, the Son of God, in the earth of the people.

    Jesus Christ is the glorified personality that clothes the Shekinah, and the means by which she can permanently reside in humanity. He is the Son of God, the Mediator, that harmonizes humanity and deity.

    Glory to God! Hallelujah!!

    My response focuses on what you say here:

    “Tradition says that Judah’s interment in Babylon corrupted the religion of the Judean captives, but the truth is that Jehovah sent Judah into captivity for offering their living children as burnt sacrifices to Ba’al (Ez 16:20-21).

    Question: Does the Babylonian Talmud, which blasphemes Jesus Christ, represent the religion of ancient Babylon, or is it a record of Judean Ba’al worship that began to be written during the Judean captivity?”

    Thank you pastor for this remarkable piece of revelation! It is such a salient point you raise here, that Jehovah sent Judah into captivity for offering their living children as burnt sacrifices to Ba’al. They had gone off into idolatry, Ba'al worship, before they went into captivity; they went into captivity for their sin of idolatry!!! So it seems, from what you say here, that they continued in their idolatry-those in Babylon & those left in Jerusalem- and were the ones corrupting the religion Moses passed down to them, not necessarily that Babylon influenced them in that direction. This is so interesting!

    And if the “Babylonian Talmud is a record of Judean Ba’al worship that began to be written during the Judean captivity” are the Jews who are following the Babylonian Talmud today not towing the line and religion of Judean Ba’al worship, even though they have the Torah or Tanakh? Would that rightly describe modern day Judaism, which I have read is different from the religion that Moses observed or practiced?

    It’s interesting to note that when they repented (“a new generation of repentant Judeans was born in Babylon, as recorded in the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah”) and were permitted to go back and build the temple the 2nd time in the time of Ezra, it was only a matter of time before they went off again. (See Ezra 9:1-15). It seems they didn’t stay long on the straight & narrow path. I read also that the sects of Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, and Zealots were formed during this period.… these are the people who Jesus had much rebuke for. They had long veered from Moses’s teachings.

    I read also that the 2nd temple (rebuilt) was nowhere near the 1st temple in its glory and did not in fact house the Ark of the Covenant.

    So it never did get better or get nearer to being an abode for God, even after they were given a second chance to rebuild. And I guess it never could, nor was intended to… because fallen man (1st Adam) has limitations and it takes the 2nd Adam, Lord from heaven to achieve.

    Hag 2:3 Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?

    Hag 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.

    When the Lord said, how do ye see it now? (Hag 2:3) the reference was to the rebuilt temple, and it was still nothing! So obviously the latter house is referring to the final building of the spiritual temple which we are (in the making). Am I right?
    Meanwhile Haggai prophesied that the glory of the 2nd temple would be greater than the 1st.

    So I see in effect only 2 temples, one made with hands (consisting of the tabernacle, Solomon’s temple, and all the rebuilt ones thereafter) and one made without hands; one physical and one spiritual. And the people (who could not get away from idolatry) are expecting to build the 3rd temple.

    Unfortunately, they cannot see that the conversion from physical to spiritual has already taken place with the advent of Jesus, the chief cornerstone, (whom they never accepted and whom they blasphemed from day 1 till now). They cannot see that all that is going on now is the making of the lively stones (through the resurrection of Christ in people) which will complete the final temple building.

    And Jesus said, He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

    John_5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

    It has always puzzled me how the Jews of Judaism (Khazarian or otherwise) can be said to know and worship the father
    when they so loathe Jesus, who had the son in him. That has always been my dilemma. :)

    Love, A Disciple
