  1. Hi ARGOSY, Satan and his minions are in the middle heavens, (Universe) the area of rulership known as the Principalities and Powers area. They have usurped authority there and over mankind. When they are cast to the earth their rulership powers are therefore lessened and more contained, till finally they go to the pit and then the lake. I like that thought of yours - So as Jesus has increased authority, so Satan has diminished authority. Marilyn.
  2. Actually ARGOSY, I believe there are 3 good destinies. 1. The Body of Christ to the third heaven. 2. The OT saints (the just men & women who looked for a city, Heb. 11) who go to the New Jerusalem, in the middle heavens, (Universe). 3. Israel ruling over the nations on the New Earth. Probably needs a thread of its own - the Eternal Purposes. Marilyn.
  3. So Retro, Let me put my references more accurately - the tribes. Num. 10: 14 – 27, the meanings. Gen. 29: 32, 30: 1 – 24, 35: 18 Jacob`s last words. Gen. 49: 1 - 28. Marilyn.
  4. No name was given without purpose and God`s purpose at that, and every name had a meaning, and in that meaning is teaching for us, I believe. Here are a couple of examples, Reuben and Judah. Reuben `So Leah conceived again and bore a son, and called his name Reuben; (see a son). ` (Gen. 29: 32) Jacob last words to Reuben. `Reuben, you are my first-born, my might and the beginning of my strength,...` (Gen. 49: 3) E. Bendor Samuel, quoting from the Ancient Targum, relates that this blessing is thus paraphrased: `Reuben, my first-born art thou, my strength, and the beginning of my sorrow. To thee, my son Reuben, would it have pertained to receive three portions above thy brothers, the priesthood, birthright, and kingdom, but because thou hast sinned, - the birthright is given to Joseph, - the kingdom to Judah, and the - High Priesthood to Levi.” Clearly we can see the connection there with our precious Lord Jesus Christ. He is the first-born. He will receive the birthright. He will receive the kingdom. He is the High Priest. Judah `And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, “Now I will praise the Lord.” Therefore she called his name Judah.` (Praise) (Gen. 29: 35) Y huwdah - Judah. From yadah - to hold out the hand. From yad - power and dominion. Jacob`s last words to Judah. `Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father`s children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion`s whelp; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; and as a lion, who shall rouse him? The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a law-giver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and unto him shall be the obedience of the people. Binding his donkey to the vine, and his donkey`s colt to the choice vine. He washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes. His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.` (Gen. 49: 8 - 12) So many comparisons to our Lord. Here are a few - -Lion of the tribe of Judah. (Rev. 5: 5) -the sceptre, regal and legal power. (Rev. 5: 7) -clothing in the blood of grapes. (Isa. 63: 3)
  5. The Gates of the city represent access to the city and to what is within. This gives us a picture of Christ working through the tribes of Israel, as the means of access to God`s wisdom & blessings within. The prophet Isaiah was given a wonderful view of the New Jerusalem. He saw it with God`s light & glory upon it & that nations would come to the city for the gates would be opened continually, & the Lord would be their light & glory. (Isa. 60) Christ`s Character and Offices at the Gates of the city in the New Jerusalem. (Ez. 48: 30 - 35, the tribes, Gen. 29: 32, 30: 1 – 24, 35: 18 the meanings. Rev. 21: 12 - 14, the order.) East: Christ at the Right Hand of the Father. Ephraim - doubly fruitful. Benjamin – at the right hand of the Father. Manasseh - forget, forgive. Christ is at the right hand of the Father, bringing forgiveness and fruitfulness. North : Christ the KingPriest. Reuben – Firstborn, heir. Judah – King, ruler. Levi - Priest. Christ the firstborn & heir, is the kingpriest. South: Christ the Voice of God. Simeon – Voice of God. Issachar –Wisdom. Zebulon – dwelling. Christ the voice of God, dwells with His people ruling with wisdom. West: Christ the Conqueror. Gad – Righteousness & justice. Asher - Blessing. Naphtali – Conqueror. Christ the conqueror rules with righteousness and justice giving blessings.
  6. The Gates of the city represent access to the city and to what is with in. This gives us a picture of Christ working through the tribes of Israel, as the means of access to God`s wisdom & blessings within. Christ`s Character and Offices at the Gates of the city in the Millennium. (Ez. 48: 30 - 35, the tribes, Gen. 29: 32, 30: 1 – 24, 35: 18 the meanings. ) North : Christ the KingPriest. Reuben – Firstborn, heir. Judah – King, ruler. Levi - Priest. Christ the firstborn & heir, is the kingpriest. East: Christ is the Judge. Joseph - to add, increase. Benjamin – at the right hand of the Father. Dan - Judge. Christ is the judge at the right hand of the Father. His government continues to increase. South: Christ the Voice of God. Simeon – Voice of God. Issachar –Wisdom. Zebulon – dwelling. Christ the voice of God, dwells with His people ruling with wisdom. West: Christ the Conqueror. Gad – Righteousness & justice. Asher - Blessing. Naphtali – Conqueror. Christ the conqueror rules with righteousness and justice giving blessings.
  7. `Joseph called the name of the first-born Manasseh; "For God has made me forget all my toil and all my father`s house." Manasseh - Heb. word M nashsheh, meaning causing to forget, from `nashah,` to forget, to remit, to remove. `Whose soever sins you remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins you retain, they are retained.` (John 20: 23) forget - To cease to remember. forgive - To pardon, to remit. remit - To forgive. You see they are related, Retro. When God talks about `ceasing to remember` in relation to our sins, then He is forgiving them. `I will put my laws in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people......I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.` (Jer. 31: 33 & 34) Marilyn.
  8. Hi Retro, Remember I did the gem stones further back on this thread. This is the grouping from there. Christ at God`s Right Hand. Chrysoprase – Manassah – forgiveness. Jacinth – Ephraim – doubly fruitful. Amethyst – Benjamin – at the right hand of the Father. Christ the KingPriest, at the right hand of the Father, gives forgiveness & blessings. And yes I realise that Manasseh means to cause to forget, which actually is God`s forgiveness. Marilyn.
  9. Hi Reinitin, Great to see you start this good topic. I did so love to read of how the Lord taught you and the everyday things that highlighted His teaching - re watering the horses. I`m looking forward to you sharing more of Hebrew and opening up more of God`s word. My `pearl` of truth is that I believe all of God`s word is to reveal Christ to us in all His glory, - His character and His purposes. Too often I see believers putting themselves at the centre of God`s word and that then brings misunderstanding. As you said, and we know the Lord has said, He is the way the TRUTH and the life. it is wonderful to know that God created the Hebrew language to reveal more of His truths of His Son, who is THE TRUTH. regards, Marilyn.
  10. Hi JohnD, I certainly wont `pummel` you, dear bro, neither will Retro. (Can`t see anyone else around) I agree with you. often it is overlooked as to the two aspects God has said concerning Israel. They were to be as the stars, and as the sand. One is on the earth and the other position is in the heavenlies. We know from God`s word that a certain group from the OT saints looked for a city...and they are waiting in the General Assembly for that city to go to its place, in the heavenlies, above the earth. Then there are those of Israel who will be on the earth, (as numerous as the sand of the seashore) and who will rule the nations of the world. The eternal purposes of God are so wonderful, not a `big soup` of everyone in one place, but each in their own order as God has planned. regards, Marilyn.
  11. Hi mabel, Yes I also wondered about the CERN dance. Strange. As to the Pope, well he is right in the mix. He is the one bringing all the different religions together under, tolerance, respect, etc (meaning tolerate & respect all sorts of demonic activity). Then the false prophet will head up that great apostasy. We really are at the sticky end, so to speak. Hubby has just reminded me that often we can focus too much on what the world is doing, and then get fearful. Of course we need to be aware, but we also need to focus on what the Lord is doing in our lives, to change us to be like Christ. And this can mean looking at areas of our lives that need His help. I find that as I learn to co-operate with the Holy Spirit then I am actually pleased to have an area highlighted for I know that as I work with the Holy Spirit that area can be dealt with. all the best as we journey together, Marilyn.
  12. Hi Retro, This is a very interesting conversation we are having. I am really appreciating it. Also thank you for the correction. I said gates to the temple, when as you showed the gates are to the city. Now if we look at the 12 gates and the meaning of the tribe names in relation to the Lord we see this difference - The Millennium Joseph - He will add, increase. Benjamin - at the right hand. Dan - Judge `Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom to order it and establish it with judgment and justice.` (Isa. 9: 7) The Lord is at the Father`s right hand ruling over the throne of David. The increase of His government comes as more people are born and come into the kingdom. He will also be judging the nations in the millennium. The New Jerusalem Ephraim - doubly fruitful. Benjamin - at the right hand. Manasseh - forgiveness. `He showed me a pure river of the water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. And in the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore 12 fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the health of the nations. And there shall be no more curse.` (Rev. 22: 1 - 3) The Lord is at the Father`s right hand bringing forgiveness and fruitfulness to all. Marilyn.
  13. Hi Retro, Interesting find, the 12 gates in the temple in the Millennium. A few differences though, with the new Jerusalem. 1. No temple in the New Jerusalem. 2. The tribes of Joseph and Dan are not mentioned in the New Jerusalem, however Joseph`s sons are - Manasseh and Ephraim. 3. Also the order of the gates are different. In the millennium the north gate is first, while in the New Jerusalem the East gate is first. Marilyn.
  14. Thank you Retro, And the birth order as scripture says is on the two shoulder stones. (Ex. 28: 9 & 10) Marilyn.
  15. That`s good. And yes I started this one. All the best for your first thread. Marilyn.
