We will be looking at Scriptures in Deuteronomy 28:27, and 1 Samuel, Chapters 5 and 6 that have to do with emerods (which means hemorrhoids).

 

The definition of the English word, emerods. It is Strong's #6075, aphal, and we see that the word translated emerods, meaning hemorrhoids in the King James version of the Old Testament, can also mean to be proud, or to presume, to be presumptuous, in particular, to be carrying on an act of presumption; to be arrogant and flying in the face of the best advice, to continue to be arrogant.

 

That is a pretty serious indictment, there is another word with the same Hebrew letters as aphal. If you are any good at looking at the Hebrew letters, I would like to give them to you. If you can identify the three characters, and you do not have to know what they are, but they are ayin, pe and lamed. They are A-P-L, and you can see the transliteration there, aphal.

 

Strong's #6076 has the same Hebrew letters, A-P-L, and the transliteration is ophel instead of aphal, and as I have explained to you many times, the ancient Hebrew did not use vowels, so we can legitimately apply the meaning of either one of these words to the translation of emerods.

 

The Strong's number for emerods is #6075, and it is a three-letter word, the letters A-P-L, pronounced aphal. The very next word in the lexicon, is Strong's #6076, with the same A-P-L letters, only a different vowel, and is pronounced ophel instead of aphal. According to the rules of translation, going back to the ancient Hebrew, where they did not use vowels at all, we could choose either one of those two definitions. We need to choose the one that fits in with the context of the verse.

 

Aphal means to be proud, to presume, to be arrogant and flying in the face of the best advice. Ophel means to be a hill, a fort or a citadel, and the second possibility is a tumor, meaning a hemorrhoid.

 

The King James translators chose the second translation (a tumor) of Strong's #6076, ophel, but that very same word, even with those same vowels, could be the first translation: a hill, a fort, or a citadel, which is a defensed city. Then we have Strong's #6077, which is the third spelling, and it seems to have the same vowels as Strong's #6076. This is a proper noun designating Ophel, the name of the hill where Jotham did major repairs to the wall of Jerusalem.

 

This sort of supports the first translation of #6076: a hill, a fort or a citadel. In our translation of 1 Samuel, Verses 5 and 6, we are going to use both of those translations as they fit into the translation of the verse. We are going to use #6075, to be proud, to be arrogant in the face of the best advice, to just stand your ground and refuse to move. I will also translate it as a fortified city, or as the Sefirot. A walled city may mean the Sefirot in the context of the verses.

 

To start with, I have one standalone verse here. I looked up the word emerods in my Bible program, and I have translated every verse that comes up with that word.

 

Deut 28:27

27 And the Lord will smite you with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou cannot be healed. KJV

 

Deut 28:27 - AT

The Lord will smite you with the botch of Egypt, with the scab and with the itch because of the pride, arrogance and presumption by which you resist the advice of your God. (AT)

 

We are taking the first translation of emerods from Strong's #6075, to be arrogant in the face of the best advice. When you are that arrogant, the judgment that can come upon you is that the Lord will smite you with the botch of Egypt, and with the scab, and with the itch because of the pride, arrogance, and presumption by which you resist the advice of your God. You can translate it that way, or you can say that one of the curses is a hemorrhoid, but in view of all the other verses in which the word emerod is used, I would be more inclined to go with this translation.

 

1 Sam 4:7-11

7 And the Philistines were afraid, for they said, God is come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore.

8 Woe unto us! who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods? these are the Gods that smote the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness.

9 Be strong and quit yourselves like men, O ye Philistines, that ye be not servants unto the Hebrews, as they have been to you: quit yourselves like men, and fight.

10  And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen.

11 And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.  KJV

 

The Philistines defeated the Hebrew children in a military battle.

 

Verse 7, And the Philistines were afraid, for they said, God has come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there has not been such a thing heretofore... meaning, the power of God through the ark of God.

 

Verse 9, The Philistines are saying, Be brave; be strong and quit yourself like men.

 

Verse 10, And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man to his tent: and there was a great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen.

 

Verse 11, And the ark of God was taken. The Israelite soldiers fled the battlefield, and the Philistines captured the ark. The Philistines were a very idolatrous people, and they thought they were capturing this great power, and they took the ark and put it into the temple of their god.

 

1 SAMUEL, CHAPTER 5, VERSES 1-12

King James Version

1 Sam 5:1-12 

1 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.

When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the Lord. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.

And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the Lord; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.

Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

But the hand of the Lord was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.

And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.

They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.

And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the Lord was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.

10 Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.

11 So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.

12 And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.  KJV

 

1 SAMUEL, CHAPTER 6, VERSES 1-21

King James Version

   

1 Sam 6:1-21

1 And the ark of the Lord was in the country of the Philistines seven months.

2 And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, What shall we do to the ark of the Lord? tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place.

3And they said, If ye send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.

4 Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.

5 Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

6 Wherefore then do ye harden your hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? when he had wrought wonderfully among them, did they not let the people go, and they departed?

7 Now therefore make a new cart, and take two milch kine, on which there hath come no yoke, and tie the kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them:

And take the ark of the Lord, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of gold, which ye return him for a trespass offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go.

And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast to Bethshemesh, then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that happened to us.

10 And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the cart, and shut up their calves at home:

11 And they laid the ark of the Lord upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.

12 And the kine took the straight way to the way of Bethshemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Bethshemesh.

13 And they of Bethshemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.

14 And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the Lord.

15 And the Levites took down the ark of the Lord, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the Lord.

16 And when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day.

17 And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the Lord; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;

18 And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the Lord: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.

19 And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the Lord, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the Lord had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

20 And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy Lord God? and to whom shall he go up from us?

21 And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again the ark of the Lord; come ye down, and fetch it up to you.  KJV

 

Exposition of 1 Sam 6:1-21

Verse 1, And the ark of the Lord was in the country of the Philistines seven months.

 

Verse 2, And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, What shall we do to the ark of Jehovah? Tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place... because they were being smitten.

 

Verse 3, And they said, If you send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty, but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you. That is the general statement that we are talking about today.

 

Then you shall be healed. Bring your trespass offering, and then you shall be healed, and it shall be known to you... or revealed to you ...why his hand is not removed from you... why the manifestations of sin are still lingering in your life.

 

Verse 4, And then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.

 

Verse 5, Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

 

Verse 6, Wherefore then do ye harden your hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? when he had wrought wonderfully among them, did they not let the people go, and they departed?

 

Verse 7, Now therefore make a new cart, and take two milch kine... kine are cows  ...on which there hath come no yoke, and tie the kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them:

 

And take the ark of the Lord, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of God, which you return for a trespass offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go.

 

Verse 8, And see, if it goes by the way of his own coast to Bethshemesh. They sent the cart off by itself, saying, Let us see if it will go back to the land of Israel.

 

Then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that happened to us.

 

They are going to send the cart away drawn by cows, but with no driver. They are saying, If it finds its way back to Israel, then we will know that it was the God of Israel that smote us, and if it does not find its way back to Israel, we will know that it was not the God of Israel. They are saying, It was just an accident. It was a coincidence that all this devastation came upon us while we possessed the ark of God.

 

Verse 10, And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the cart, and shut up their calves at home:

 

Verse 11, And they laid the ark of the Lord upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.

 

Verse 12, And the kine took the straight way to the way of Bethshemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Bethshemesh.

 

Verse 13, And they of Bethshemesh, were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and they saw the ark, and they rejoiced to see it.

 

Verse 14, And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the Lord.

 

Verse 15, And the Levites took down the ark of the Lord, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day to the Lord.

 

Verse 16, And when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day.

 

Verse 17, And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the Lord; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;

 

Verse 18, And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the Lord: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.

 

Verse 19, And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the Lord, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because Jehovah had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

 

Verse 20, And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy Lord God? (Jehovah God) And to whom shall he go up from us?

 

Verse 21, And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought back the ark of the Lord; come ye down, and fetch it up to you.

 

1 Samuel, Chapter 5

Workup Verse 6

1 Sam 5:6

6 But the hand of the Lord was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.  KJV

 

The Hebrew word translated heavy, we are translating powerful. The word hand, we are translating mind. The word upon, actually means above, and we are translating it higher above.

 

The Hebrew word translated destroyed, we are translating to stun. And the Hebrew word translated smote, we are translating to severely punish. The word emerods in this verse, we are translating pride. The Hebrew word translated the coasts thereof, actually means an enclosed territory, which could mean physical bodies, or it could mean the Sefirot. In this verse, we are translating it physical bodies.

 

Verse 6 - AT

Because the mind of Jehovah within the Israelites was more powerful than the mind of Dagon within the men of Ashdod, and Jehovah within the mind of the Israelites stunned the men of Ashdod and severely punished them because of their pride. (AT)

 

What is suggested here in the esoteric translation is that the Israelites fled the field of battle, the ark was captured, and then we read about how the ark was in the temple of Dagon. But what is not stated, which is appearing in the esoteric literature—I do not know how it worked in those days, but there were a lot of people praying to get the ark back. In other words, Israel did not just accept the fact, Well, the ark is gone, too bad; they were praying.

 

At the very least, the priests were praying, and maybe the people, the general population also. I do not know how it worked in those days, but there was heavy spiritual prayer going out, and obviously, repentance, to get back the ark of God. It comes out in the esoteric literature that Jehovah, within the mind of the Israelites, stunned the men of Ashdod, and severely punished them because of their pride.

 

There was a spiritual warfare going on, saying, How dare you retain the ark of the living God! And that warfare was involved in the destruction of the idol of Dagon. I always thought, before I did this study, that the ark of God was in the temple with Dagon, and it was the power of the ark alone that cut off the hands of the statue of Dagon, but we are being told in the esoteric literature that it was more than that. It was the power of God being manifested through the mind of the Israelites, and that is a very powerful principle we have been talking about for a long time. God manifests Himself through the minds of people.

 

If you are afflicted, or under some kind of attack, it is never a free-floating spirit out there; it is always coming from somebody’s mind. There is always somebody willing to think evil of you. The powers and principalities on the higher spiritual realm fly around until they find somebody who has a secret or overt thought against you, that is willing to think, or do, or say whatever is necessary to gather up the strength to bring that spiritual attack on the person who is targeted. It can just be you thinking it.

 

Verse 6 - AT

Because the mind of Jehovah within the Israelites was more powerful than the mind of Dagon within the men of Ashdod, Jehovah, within the mind of Israelites, stunned the men of Ashdod and severely punished them because of their pride. (AT)

 

First, they were stunned, meaning they could not fight back. That is what a scorpion does, it stings you and stuns you so that you cannot do anything, then it eats you alive. They were stunned and could not fight back, and then they were severely punished. At the end of Chapter 6 there was a great plague that came upon the Philistines. They did not just yell, Get the ark out of here! because Dagon fell down and his hands were cut off. There was a great plague, and thousands of people died.

 

Verse 19, Fifty thousand and threescore and ten men... were killed ...and the people lamented, because the Lord... Jehovah ...had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

 

You have to read through Chapter 6 to understand what this is all about. First, He stunned them so that they could not fight back, and then He punished them severely, and thousands of people died. He punished them with some type of plague.

 

Workup - Verse 9

We are jumping to Verse 9. We are just translating the verses that have the word emerods in them.

 

1 Sam 5:9

9 And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the Lord was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.  KJV

 

We are being challenged now. The Hebrew word translated was we are translating, it came to pass. The English words, that, after actually means hind part, and we are translating that the unconscious. The English word carried about, when you look it up in the Hebrew, means to revolve, to surround, or to be a border.  We are translating it a physical body; it is a border. And the word hand, we are translating mind. We have done that before.

 

I meant to go back in and get you the Strong's number for the word that we translated stunned, because, in Verse 9, we see the English word destruction, but it is a different Hebrew word. In Verse 9, it is Strong's #4103, and the Hebrew word translated destruction, means confusion. The Hebrew word translated very, can be translated vehement, and we had that in a recent translation. The Hebrew word translated smote, we are translating severely.

 

In their secret parts, we are translating, and He broke forth from within. In their secret parts is the translation of Strong's #8368, which can be translated to break out; skin eruptions of some kind, boils or tumors, but that is really the King James translators imposing their translation upon the Hebrew lexicon. It means to break out, and we are translating it to break forth. That is a common expression, to say that Jehovah broke forth upon them; that a spirit breaks forth upon you.

 

The Hebrew word translated they, we are translating to belong to, and that is the word that we have translated to belong to, a lot. And emerods in Verse 9, we are translating fortified places, which are the Sefirot.

 

Verse 9 - AT

And it came to pass that Jehovah, the unconscious mind of the physical bodies of the Israelites, broke forth from within the fortified mind of the mortal men of the city and struck them vehemently, both the small and the great, and threw them into a severe confusion. (AT)

 

What I was thinking when I translated this, because there really is a word there that means within—and they had in their secret parts, it means from within. That word within is really there, so what it said to me when I prayed about it was that Jehovah actually penetrated into their minds. He did not break forth upon them from the outside, He actually entered into their minds; He broke forth from within their mind.

 

The Enemy Is Within

What I was thinking—and it becomes clearer as we go on with the other verses, was the way voodoo works, which fascinates me. Voodoo is known for actually get inside of the person they want to afflict. The Lord showed me years ago, the way this works is that a spiritual power ascends high enough to enter into a spiritual place which would be above all human beings. When it is up so high, it can come down and enter into the consciousness of any human being that it wants to.

 

We saw this principle when we analyzed The Matrix. The principle was called the hallway, that with the proper spiritual authority, you ascend to this very high place, and what manifests is a hallway. You walk down the hallway, and there all of these closed doors, and each door is the door to somebody’s mind. When you know how to function in this kind of spirituality, you know how to identify the door to the mind of the person that you want to enter into. Of course, when you do it with voodoo, it is illegal, but Jehovah can do it if He wants to. You open the door and literally enter into the spiritual universe of that person, and kill them from within. That is how you choke people from within, or if you are using voodoo, you plant snakes in someone's abdomen, and when they cut the dead person open, you see all the snakes that crushed their organs.

 

That was the perception that I had when I was translating this verse. The Philistines were very spiritually powerful men by the power of the god of Dagon, so Jehovah rose up to a very high place and chose to break forth upon them from within; not from the outside, but from their very own inner center. He broke forth upon their mind, breaking their connection with their god. If Jehovah would have attacked from the outside, they still would have been in contact with their god, but Jehovah broke forth on them from the inside, breaking their connection with the higher power.

 

Spirituality is the same on all sides. It is just a question of what spirit you are dealing with. The Philistines (which we will find out in further verses) were whole; they were fulfilled. They had the child of their god in the midst of them, which completed them, and the child that they had produced was married to a manifestation of Dagon on the third degree of power. The child was married to the powers of the upper triad, so Jehovah did not attack them from the outside. If He attacked from the outside, they could have defended themselves.

 

The Lord taught me this a long time ago, when I first started getting choked. I was putting warrior angels around myself on the outside, and He said, No, Sheila, that will not do it. They are coming in from the inside. You have to place the warrior angels at the entranceway to your spiritual universe, which is the way I have been praying ever since. Whatever power it is that chokes me whenever it gets the opportunity to try, is on the level of voodoo, and it is somehow entering into my spiritual universe and choking me from within.

 

Our spiritual enemy is coming from within. When the warfare gets hot and heavy, you need to place your angels and do your warfare from within. The warfare is within. Anything coming from outside of you cannot hurt you. Jesus said, There is nothing that you can eat that can hurt you. It all comes out in the draught.

 

Matt 15:17

17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?  KJV

 

There is no spiritual power outside of you that can hurt you, but if they can get inside of you, they can murder you from the inside, so you need to place your warrior angels at the internal entranceway to your spiritual universe in your innermost point. I have been praying that way for years.

 

Jehovah entered in through the back door. He entered into their mind, and broke the unity between the child within the Philistines and the third degree of power. That would be the parallel of Binah of the other side.

 

Verse 9 - AT

And it came to pass that Jehovah, the unconscious mind of the physical bodies of the Israelites, broke forth from the fortified mind of the mortal men of the city and struck them vehemently, both the small and the great, and threw them into a severe confusion. (AT)

 

PASTOR VITALE: Jehovah entered in from their innermost point. He broke forth upon them from the inside and entered into their spiritual universe, struck them vehemently and threw them into a severe confusion. Can anybody tell me why they would they be confused?

 

COMMENT: Their mind was attacked.

 

PASTOR VITALE: You are close. How was their mind attacked? You all know the answer; you are just not thinking of it. You are going to know the answer when I tell you. Why were they confused? What produces confusion?

 

COMMENT: The carnal mind.

 

PASTOR VITALE: Conflict produces confusion. You were very close. They had...

 

COMMENT: They had the Christ mind.

 

PASTOR VITALE: How many minds did they now have?

 

COMMENT: Two.

 

PASTOR VITALE: They now had two minds. They became double-minded. The Old Testament is so rich. I have never seen that in a translation before. It is always the carnal mind that comes in and makes you double-minded. Jehovah actually broke forth into their mind and made them double-minded.

 

I am so excited over this translation because it says to me, At any time that the Lord says, 'Now is the time', He is going to break forth on ISIL. He is going to break forth on the corrupt politicians in our government. He is going to break forth on everybody, and they are going to go into complete confusion because they are now going to have two gods in their mind. Some might lose their mind, some might die, and some might repent. We are going to find out that some of the Philistines repented and did not die, but those that did not repent died from the plague.

 

Sickness, An Opportunity To Repent

1 Sam 6:12

12 And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.

 

Verse 12, And the men that died not... everybody did not die. He struck them vehemently, small and great, and threw them into a severe confusion, and the men that did not die... Which men did not die, the men that did what?

 

COMMENT: Repented.

 

PASTOR VITALE: The men that repented did not die. And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.

 

That is a really interesting principle because I, myself, have gone before the Lord, and have seen people, especially in the church that I was raised up in, die and go under judgment. There is one man who is in my mind right now who was in the ministry very, very briefly. He was a wicked man, he really was, and he was a Christian. He was wicked man, in adultery, undelivered, and he died without any pain. He just fell off his chair one day in his garage, and he died. He did not suffer.

 

His wife really suffered, though. She was sick and could not breathe, and she ended up in the hospital. How could that be? Today I understand it. When God kills you right away, it means you are so wicked that there is no chance of repentance, that He has given you all the chances He is going to give you to repent, and He just kills you. When you get sick, it is actually an opportunity to repent. The Lord is holding on, hoping that your pain will bring you to repentance, and that is the answer to the question that I have asked Him so many times.

 

Verse 12 - AT

And Jehovah struck the fortified carnal mind of the mortal men severely, and they saw the great God, Jehovah, and a cry of repentance went up to heaven from the terrified mortal men, and they did not die. (AT)

 

Isa 6:1-5

1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.  KJV

 

Samuel, Chapter 6

Workup - Verse 3

We are up to 1 Samuel, Chapter 6, Verse 3, King James:

 

1 Sam 6:3

3 And they said, If you send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.  KJV

 

It is pretty clear in the King James: Send a trespass offering, and you are going to find out why God's hand is still bashing you. Do you want to know why His hand is still punishing you? Send a trespass offering, and it will be revealed to you why the effects of sin are still lingering in your life.

 

The Hebrew word translated in any wise, Strong's #7725, we are translating repent. I gave you the number because it is the same Hebrew word that is translated return. In any wise return, it is merely #7725, #7725—the same word repeated twice.

 

The Hebrew word translated belong to, can also be translated equal to. A trespass offering is to express your guilt. The Hebrew word translated healed is very interesting to me. It means to be stitched together, and that is a very special word. It is the word that is used in Isaiah 53:5; it is the prophecy of Messiah, where it says we shall be healed.

 

Isa 53:5

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.  KJV

 

Strong's #7495, translated healed, means to mend by stitching. It really means we shall be stitched together again. It is our healing because we are dead. How will we come back to life? How will we be healed? We must be stitched back together again with Jehovah, and that is the function of the Lord Jesus Christ, the mediator. When we bear His child and He comes down and marries us (He, who is at the right hand of Jehovah), we are stitched back together again with Jehovah, and we will live again. I get excited every time I see that word healed, because that is what it means.

 

The definition from a second dictionary, the same word is used in Genesis to indicate a restoration of fertility, which means that this stitching together gives us the ability to bring forth the spiritual child.

 

Gen 20:17

17 So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.  KJV

 

The Hebrew word translated why, can also be translated what, and we have been understanding for years that the Kabbalistic principle of the word what can be translated Elohim.  

 

The Hebrew word translated removed can be translated to turn off,  and the word hand, we are translating mind.

 

Verse 3 - AT

And the Philistine priests said, If you send away the ark of Jehovah, the God of Israel, do not send it empty, but confess that you were wrong, and repent of making Jehovah, the God of Israel, equal to Dagon, and repent of idolatry. (AT)

 

There are two verbs for repent: repent of making Jehovah, the God of Israel, equal to Dagon, and repent of idolatry. This is so interesting that you repent of idolatry. To me that is a witness that Jehovah is the God of all people. Jesus said in His Name, it is the will of God that all men everywhere should repent.

 

Acts 17:30

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:  KJV

 

2 Pet 3:9

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  KJV

 

Jehovah is interested in the sinners as well as His people. He has a different relationship with His people, but He is always willing to have mercy on sinners.

 

This verse is saying, You need to repent of making Jehovah, the God of Israel, equal to Dagon, and also repent of idolatry while you are in the way, and maybe the God of Israel will have mercy on you. Repent of your sins. In addition to this one sin that brought this upon you, repent of your major sin of idolatry. Then you shall be stitched together with Jehovah, and you will understand that you belong to Elohim, and He will not turn away Jehovah's mind from you.

 

It seems to me, in this verse, that Jehovah is offering them salvation. It is not His will that anybody should be destroyed. That is what is being said here.

 

Verse 3 - AT

And the Philistine priests said, If you send away the ark of Jehovah, the God of Israel, do not send it empty, but confess that you were wrong, and repent of making Jehovah, the God of Israel, equal to Dagon, and repent of idolatry. Then you will be stitched together with Jehovah, and you will understand that you belong to Elohim, and that He will not turn away Jehovah’s mind from you.  (AT)

 

Everyone on this side of the Flood belongs to Elohim. Elohim made the covenant with Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth, and we are all descendants of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth, so we all belong to Elohim. He made the covenant with our ancestors, and that He will not turn away Jehovah's mind. I have a comment here. Jehovah took the Philistine men responsible for placing the ark of God in the temple of Dagon captive, and they became His servants.

 

Workup - Verse 4

1 Sam 6:4

4 Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.  KJV

 

The Hebrew word trespass, we are translating guilt. Then said they, What guilt offering should we return to him?

 

We are translating emerods, fortified places, and we are translating fortified places as Sefirot. When I looked up the word gold, it meant shimmering like golden oil.  Shimmering, because there are several different Hebrew words translated gold. This Hebrew word meant shimmering like in oil, so I have translated gold in this verse, the golden oil of the Sefirot of the Son, the six Sefirot that grow out of the female foundation.

 

The word five, I am translating Sefirot. These are the five of the six Sefirot of the Son of God growing out of the female foundation, and it is not the Philistines, it is the Hebrews that have the foundation, plus five Sefirot of the Son, who is the golden oil. They were the ones doing the warfare from Israel that was forcing the Philistines to return the ark.

 

The word, mice, is Strong's #5909. The word, mouse really means to attack, and it comes from Strong's #5908, which means, in a literal sense, entangling, such as a spider. The spider is the carnal mind. A spider is weaving a network, which is the carnal mind, so I am translating the word, mouse: the carnal mind as it nibbles away at the Christ mind.

 

The word plague can be translated to defeat, and the Hebrew word translated one can be translated unity. The word all, we are translating fulfilled. The lords of the Philistines that were fulfilled. They had a spiritual child that was married to the third degree of power.

 

And they said, What guilt offerings should we return to Him? The priests answered, Whatever number of the lords of the Philistines it will take to satisfy the Israelite men who unified the five Sefirot.

 

The words, unify the Sefirot, is a Kabbalistic term. That is what the Kabbalists do when they meditate. It never ceases to amaze me that the whole purpose of meditation of the Kabbalists, as I understand it, is to receive prophecy; to receive what we are getting here without meditating. What they do is they go into a meditative state. They envision the Sefirot, and they unify them by the power of their mind.

 

This verse is talking about the Israelites who unified the five Sefirot. That is a great feat. I do not know that there is even anyone in Israel today, in the modern Jewry, that can do it, and we have it done for us in the Spirit of Christ. In Christ Jesus, the Sefirot are united. He is united; He cannot be divided.

 

Making An Atonement

2 Sam 21:1-9

1 Then there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David enquired of the Lord. And the Lord answered, It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites.

2 And the king called the Gibeonites, and said unto them; (now the Gibeonites were not of the children of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites; and the children of Israel had sworn unto them: and Saul sought to slay them in his zeal to the children of Israel and Judah.)

3 Wherefore David said unto the Gibeonites, What shall I do for you? and wherewith shall I make the atonement, that ye may bless the inheritance of the Lord?

4 And the Gibeonites said unto him, We will have no silver nor gold of Saul, nor of his house; neither for us shalt thou kill any man in Israel. And he said, What ye shall say, that will I do for you.

5 And they answered the king, The man that consumed us, and that devised against us that we should be destroyed from remaining in any of the coasts of Israel,

6 Let seven men of his sons be delivered unto us, and we will hang them up unto the Lord in Gibeah of Saul, whom the Lord did choose. And the king said, I will give them.

7 But the king spared Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan the son of Saul, because of the Lord's oath that was between them, between David and Jonathan the son of Saul.

8 But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite:

9 And he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the Lord: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest.  KJV

 

In 2 Samuel, Chapter 21, Verses 1-9, there was a famine in land, and David asks the Lord, Why? The Lord tells him, It is because of Saul, who slew the Gibeonites. King David agrees that Israel is guilty, and the Gibeonites ask for seven sons of Saul to be delivered to them, which made an atonement, or satisfied the need to go to war.

 

This same principle was in an episode of a science fiction TV show, Star Trek, that I watched years ago. They went to this planet where they had not had a war in ages. People were lining up to go into this machine that was going to kill them, and they took so many people every year and executed them, so that the other side was satisfied, and it saved the nation from war.  But it never occurred to me that this principle was in the Scripture.

 

The lords of the Philistines were offered to Israel as a sacrifice to save the whole nation. The nation was dying from this plague, and the powerful spiritual lords of the Philistines were offered up. The question was, How many should we send? And the answer was, As many hostages as necessary to satisfy the Israelite spiritual warriors that were defeating them in a spiritual war. The Philistines defeated the Israelite soldiers on the battlefield.

 

The Philistines defeated the Israelite soldiers that were in sin (or that there was sin in the camp, but the priests were still in right standing), and they were defeating the priests of the Philistines. And there was such a destruction on these cities (Ashdod and other cities) that they were willing to offer up as hostages, for the purpose of executing them, the lords of the Philistines. What lords of the Philistines? The powerful spiritual warriors that were being defeated by the minds of the priests and, particularly, the high priest of Israel.

 

This is so exciting. I love the letter of the word, but this is so exciting. You have to integrate the esoteric understanding with the letter of the word, and to anybody that has a problem doing this, I want you to know that I had a problem for years. For a long time, I could not read the letter of the word because it confused me about the spiritual understanding, but today I can do both, and that should be your goal. If you are not doing it yet, the day will come that you will be able to integrate the esoteric and the letter of the word, and that should be your goal. If you are not doing it now, you need to be praying about it because I am giving you a standard, that you should eventually be coming to the place where you integrate the two, and it is just a marvelous experience in God.

 

Verse 4 - AT

And they said, What guilt offering should be returned to him? And the priests answered, Whatever number of the lords of the Philistines it will take to satisfy the Israelite men who unified the five Sefirot of the golden oil of the Son of God below... Not the Son of God above, because there is a Son of God above, and there is a Son of God below. Jesus is the Son of God above; Christ Jesus is the Son of God below. ...with the five Sefirot of the golden oil of the Son of God above, and defeated the carnal mind of the fulfilled lords of the Philistines.

 

The Israelite priests below had unified, further to message that we had the other day, the greater assembly. They had unified Ze’ir Anpin, the lesser assembly, with the greater assembly, the Lord Jesus above. Of course, it was not Jesus in those days. They had unified the regenerating Adam within them with the righteous Adam from above (whatever personal name he was taking at that time), and through that unity, they were able to defeat the lords of the Philistines that were having a similar, or an analogous experience, with their god. They had the spiritual child that was married to the third degree of power above, but Jehovah, in the same parallel, was more powerful than the lords of the Philistines, who were fulfilled, married to the third degree of power above.

 

I would like to read that again. It is an exciting translation.

 

Verse 4 - AT

And they said, What guilt offering should be returned to him? And the priests answered, Whatever number of the lords of the Philistines it will take to satisfy the Israelite men who unified the five Sefirot of the golden oil of the Son of God below with the five Sefirot of the golden oil of the Son of God above, and defeated the carnal mind of the fulfilled lords of the Philistines. (AT)

 

Brethren, that is our heritage. The day is coming we are going to be doing that for the glory of God: overthrowing the criminal minds that are destroying the world.

 

Workup - Verse 5

1 Sam 6:5

5 Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.  KJV

 

In other words, He will ease up on the judgment that is falling on you, which is killing thousands of people.

 

We are translating emerods, pride and arrogance. Your mice, we are translating your carnal mind. The word glory, I have been telling you for a long time, is translated the opinion of God. Peradventure means perhaps. Hand, we are translating mind.

 

Verse 5 - AT

Wherefore, make your prideful and arrogant self-image, and the thoughts of your carnal mind that corrupt the land, and ascribe to the opinion of Jehovah, the God of Israel, and perhaps He will lighten (instead of make) His grip, which is higher than your mind, higher than your gods and higher than the land of your physical body. (AT)

 

The general idea is, He will lighten the judgment on you. And perhaps He will lighten the judgment on you, which is higher than your mind, higher than your gods and higher than the land of your physical body.

 

Perhaps he will lighten the grip that He holds over you, which is higher than your mind, higher than your gods and higher than the land of your physical body.

 

Workup - Verse 11

1 Sam 6:11

11 And they laid the ark of the Lord upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.  KJV

 

The Hebrew word translated coffer means box. The ark of God is actually the cover of the box. When you study about the ark of God, what you see is a box with a cover, and I always thought the box was the ark, but it is not. We have had some deep studies on this. The ark is the cover with the two cherubim on it, and it rests on a box.

 

The Hebrew word translated coffer is a box, and emerods, we are translating arrogant. The mice, we are translating the carnal mind, and gold is the golden Sefirot of the Son of God.

 

Verse 11 - AT

And they submitted the arrogant self-image of their carnal mind to the golden Sefirot of the Son of God, and laid the ark of Jehovah upon the box, and they laid the box on the cart. (AT)

 

The King James translation arises (in my opinion) out of a misunderstanding of what the ark is. The King James says, And they laid the ark of the Lord upon the cart. At the very least, they are thinking that the cover and the box are the same, but they are not.

 

And they laid the ark of the Lord upon the cart, and the box with the mice and the gold images of the emerods. I doubt that they put (if it is true) the mice of gold and the images of the emerods inside the ark of God. They would have never gotten the ark off the box and survived. It is just the best that the King James translators could do, but it is not at all an accurate translation. 

 

They submitted the arrogant self-image of their carnal mind, or Their carnal mind has submitted the arrogant self-image of themselves to the... I think I like that better.

 

Verse 11 - AT

Their carnal mind submitted the arrogant self-image of themselves to the golden Sefirot of the Son of God, and laid the ark of Jehovah upon the box, and they laid the box on the cart. (AT)

 

Workup - Verse 17

1 Sam 6:17

17 And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the Lord; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;  KJV

 

Emerods, we are translating Sefirot, and guilt is a translation of the trespass offering. This is an easy one.

 

     Verse 17 - AT

These are the Philistines who were saved from Jehovah’s Sowing and Reaping Judgment when the sons of God with the golden Sefirot turned back their guilt (or forgave their sins). (AT)

 

Workup - Verse 18       

1 Sam 6:18

18 And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the Lord: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.  KJV

 

I was translating this verse when some invisible hand tried to delete my work. I never had a translation like what I had for this verse. At first, I could not find the esoteric doctrine for this verse, and the way it worked out was that I would pick out a few words here or there that I could give an esoteric definition to. I took those words, for example, the field of Joshua: I knew it meant Joshua’s body. I cannot even tell you how I did it. I picked out a word here and a word there that I thought I could give an esoteric explanation to, and I put it on the side, and I kept doing that. Finally, I put all of the spiritual applications together, and I got a very powerful translation that was more deeply hidden than any translation I have ever done.

 

Mice, we are translating carnal mind. Fenced means fortified city. The Hebrew word translated and of, I have written down degree of, but I decided not to use that. The Hebrew word translated villages means to ransom. That word, ransom, is intimately involved with the work of the Lord Jesus Christ; He is a ransom that was given for us. That was one of the first words I pulled out that I could do something with. Ransom is a translation of the word translated villages.

 

The Hebrew word translated country, we are translating unwalled town, and the Hebrew word translated even to can be translated witness. Abel means stone. To set down means to marry or be permanent. (We translate it that way a lot.) The Hebrew word translated whereon, we are translating above. Again, the Hebrew word translated unto can be translated to the degree that, but I do not think I used that translation.

 

I gave you the encyclopedia entry on the word Bethshemesh. It means house of the sun, and it was a city of the tribe of Dan. It was never conquered and occupied, and it is the name of an Egyptian god, but it is in Israel.

 

This is what I came down with. I started by recognizing the word ransom. Joshua, of course, is a type of Jesus, and the field that Joshua was in means his spiritual body. A field is always our spiritual body.

 

And this is what I got, and I think I would have never gotten this if I did not first have the revelation that the Philistine lords were offered up to be executed as part of the agreement to stop destroying the country.

 

And the people whose carnal mind was a fenced city, and the people whose carnal mind was an undefensed country village... I had a political conversation with someone the other day. It is very frustrating to talk to somebody who you cannot have a reasonable conversation with. They want to believe what they want to believe no matter what the facts are, and that is idolatry in the mind. That is a defensed mind. A defensed mind does necessarily mean you are defensed in God; you can be defensed in Leviathan. A defensed mind is a mind that will not listen to any kind of reason, and you cannot get through to them without smashing that idol, that cement or that stone on their mind.

 

And the people whose carnal mind was a fenced city... You could not get through to them. In other words, they would not repent. They saw all this destruction, and they would not repent.

 

There are going to be people that are going to be seeing great destruction from the Lord, and they will not repent. My sister, who suffered her whole life, and was desperately ill for years, sat at a restaurant table with her home health aide, who was a born-again Christian, and me—the two of us were having this incredible conversation, with the anointing pouring down in the restaurant, and she was just sitting there with her eyes looking off to the side. And she died like that. Some people will just not repent.

 

And the people whose carnal mind was a fenced city, and the people whose carnal mind was an undefensed country village, meaning they were open to change.

 

...were witnesses that the number of the fortified cities of the Philistine lords who were whole... they had a spiritual child that was married to the third degree of power.

 

...were paid as a ransom to the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God within the box that Joshua, the field that Jehovah, the great stone from above, was married to.

 

Let me read that again. And the people whose carnal mind was a defensed city, and the people whose carnal mind was an undefensed country village were witnesses that the number of the fortified cities of the Philistine lords... that is talking about the minds, or the fortified cities who were the Philistine lords.

 

The Philistine lords were fortified cities, who were whole, were paid as a ransom to the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God within... I do not think there should be within. Actually, it is who were married to the box.

 

And the people whose carnal mind was a fenced city, and the people whose carnal mind was an undefensed country village were witnesses that the number of the fortified cities of the Philistine lords, who were whole... that means their bodies ...were paid as a ransom to the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God, who were married to the box that Joshua, the field that Jehovah, the great stone from above, was married to. Well, I do not think they went inside of the box.

 

Were paid as a ransom to the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God, who were married to the box that Joshua, the field that Jehovah, the great stone from above... Whatever he did. Did he carry it, or did he catch it, or did he find it? What did he do? 

 

...which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.

 

Paid a ransom to the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God, who was married to the box that Joshua, the field that Jehovah... It has to do with caring for ...which stone remaineth unto this day.

 

I have to straighten out some of these verses, but that is the general meaning.

 

Paid as a ransom to the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God that were within the box that Joshua, the field that Jehovah, the great stone from above, was married to.

 

Paid a ransom to the five golden Sefirot...  No, that cannot be.

 

Paid as a ransom to the priests that the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God...

 

Paid a ransom to the box that the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God...

 

I have to pray about that, but that is what the translation came out to. I would have never gotten that translation if I did not have the revelation that the Philistine lords were paid as a ransom to save the rest of the city. It is a miracle that I got this translation out of it. That is the general meaning. I have to straighten out that last sentence.

 

Verse 18 - AT

And the people whose carnal mind was a defensed city, and the people whose carnal mind was an undefensed country village were witnesses that the number of the fortified cities of the Philistine lords, who were whole, were paid as a ransom to the priests that had the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God, whose power was in the box that Joshua, the field that Jehovah, the great stone from above, was married to. (AT)  

 

I integrated these Alternate Translations into the two chapters, which I would like to read to you.

 

INTEGRATED ALTERNATE TRANSLATION

1 Samuel 5:1-12

1 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.

When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the Lord. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.

And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the Lord; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.

Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

But the hand of the Lord was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.

 

Verse 6 - AT

Because the mind of Jehovah within the Israelite priests was more powerful than the mind of Dagon within the priests of Ashdod. And Jehovah within the mind of the Israelite priests stunned the priests of Ashdod and severely punished them because of their pride. (AT)

 

What pride? That they actually thought they could capture and lay hold of the ark of God and make it equal to Dagon.

 

And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.

They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.

And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the Lord was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.

 

Verse 9 - AT

And it came to pass that Jehovah, the unconscious mind of the physical bodies of the Israelite priests, broke forth from within the fortified mind of mortal men of the city and struck them vehemently, both the small and the great, and threw them into a severe confusion, and they became double-minded. (AT)

 

10 Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.

11 So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.

12 And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.

 

Verse 12 - AT

And Jehovah struck the fortified carnal mind of the mortal men severely, and they saw the great God Jehovah, and a cry of repentance went up to heaven from the terrified mortal men, and they did not die. (AT)

1 Samuel 6:1-21

1 And the ark of the Lord was in the country of the Philistines seven months.

And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, What shall we do to the ark of the Lord? tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place.

And they said, If ye send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.

 

Verse 3 - AT

And the Philistine priests said, ‘If you send away the ark of Jehovah, the God of Israel, do not send it empty, but confess that you were wrong, and repent of making Jehovah, the God of Israel, equal to Dagon, and repent of idolatry. Then you shall be stitched together with Jehovah, and you shall understand that you belong to Elohim and that He will not turn away Jehovah’s mind away from you. He will always be with you; you belong to Him. He will not turn away the judgment of Jehovah’s mind because you belong to Him.’ (AT)

 

4 Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.

5 Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

 

Verse 4 - AT

And they said, ‘What guilt offering should be returned to him?’ The priests answered, ‘Whatever number of the lords of the Philistines it will take to satisfy the Israelite priests, who unified the five Sefirot of the golden oil of the Son of God below with the five Sefirot of the golden oil of the Son of God above, and defeated the carnal mind of the fulfilled lords of the Philistines. (AT)

 

Verse 5 - AT

Wherefore, make your prideful and arrogant self-image, and the images and the thoughts of your carnal mind that corrupt the land, and ascribe to the opinion of Jehovah, the God of Israel, and perhaps He will lighten his grip on you because His mind is higher than your mind, higher than your god’s, higher than the land of your physical body.  (AT)

 

Wherefore then do ye harden your hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? when he had wrought wonderfully among them, did they not let the people go, and they departed?

7 Now therefore make a new cart, and take two milch kine, on which there hath come no yoke, and tie the kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them:

8 And take the ark of the Lord, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of gold, which ye return him for a trespass offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go.

9 And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast to Bethshemesh, then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that happened to us.

10 And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the cart, and shut up their calves at home:

11 And they laid the ark of the Lord upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.

 

Verse 11 - AT

And they submitted the arrogant self-image of their carnal mind to the golden Sefirot of the Son of God, and laid the ark of Jehovah upon the box, and they laid the box on the cart. (AT)

 

12 And the kine took the straight way to the way of Bethshemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Bethshemesh.

13 And they of Bethshemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.

14 And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the Lord.

15 And the Levites took down the ark of the Lord, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the Lord.

16 And when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day.

17 And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the Lord; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;

 

Verse 17 - AT

These are the Philistines who were saved from Jehovah’s Sowing and Reaping Judgment when the sons of God with the golden Sefirot turned back their guilt. (AT)

 

18 And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the Lord: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.

 

Verse 18 - AT

And the people whose carnal mind was a fenced city, and the people whose carnal mind was an undefensed country village were witnesses that the number of the fortified cities of the Philistine lords, who were whole, were paid as a ransom to the five golden Sefirot of the Son of God, who were responsible for the box that Joshua, in the field that Jehovah, the great stone from above, was married to. (AT)

 

19 And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the Lord, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the Lord had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

20 And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy Lord God? and to whom shall he go up from us?

21 And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again the ark of the Lord; come ye down, and fetch it up to you. KJV

 

I would like to point out to you in Verse 19, that looking into the ark of God without authority is punishable by death, and that is what we are doing with these studies, we are looking into the ark of God. We are all, especially me—I am only alive because the Lord has given me permission to go up there, but that is true for you too, of course.

 

If you recall the parable of the Pardes, the angels in the higher realms tried to destroy everyone that entered in. We are not allowed to look into the ark of God, into the mysteries of the esoteric doctrine, without the specific permission of the Lord, and that is what it tells us in the Book of Hebrews.

 

Heb 6:1

 1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,  KJV

 

We must say, Let us go on to perfection, if the Lord allows. We have to ask the Lord if we are allowed. If we are not allowed, we can be smitten.

 

It has been quite a day. Are there any questions on this message? It is a very exciting translation. I have to refine the edges of some of those verses. I think it is so exciting to understand what happened when the ark was taken by the Philistines.

 

It never occurred to me, in all of these years of reading the Scripture, that the priests, especially the high priests of Israel, were waging a spiritual warfare against the lords of the Philistines that resulted in all the events that we read about happening in 1 Samuel 5 and 6. It was a very great day yesterday and great day today.

 

Are there any questions on the message? God bless you all.
