We are gleaning what we can for these days from Deuteronomy 32.
The biblical narrative speaks of demons and other gods. How is the Christian to view the concept of other, strange gods, and multiple gods? Idols and gods are used interchangeably. This verse states that the Children of God sacrificed to demons, no-gods, gods they had never known, new ones, who came but lately, who stirred not our ancestors to fear. The problem with idols gods is that they may be made of wood or stone but with today’s technology they can animate and become the habitation of demons. This is new to our world. Hence, they become idols of demons or are demon-like in the phraseology of todgdays synthetic life scientists. Some are no-gods that do not exist, except possibly in the mind of a person. These are gods without substance. The biblical foundation for this can be found in
15 But Jeshurun [Israel] waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
Here the hidden snare of provision is revealed to us. Let us make careful note. This message is directed to those who are upright in Jesus not the masses of the world or fence-sitting Christians. They prospered, such as we are witnessing right now. But the Word says they grew fat. The idea of prosperity comes from Jeshrun which means osher or wealth. When we grow strong and acquired possessions the Bible says we can become “fat, gross, and coarse.” Consequently, we begin to become complacent in our faith and rebel against Jesus because we are overindulging in food, drink, and being at ease. This is not lost on our adversary. During the Novel Corona Virus people were locked in their homes and many people had no outlets other than to eat, drink and be lazy in their homes. The Christian, on the other hand, was guided to enter the chamber of the King of Kings to pray, search the Holy Writ, and do many acts of great kindness.
Some commentators also mention the acquisition during this time of gold and silver. Remember, metals do not save, they should not be an idol but with them you may have certain blessings or opportunities afforded to you that the person without will not have.
After we have acquired all these promises and blessings what does the carnal Christian do? The forgot Jesus who made them and spurned the Rock of their support. Can we totally abandon God? I am not certain of the depravity that the human mind possesses, it is unknowable to man. These people who cry the name of Jesus forsake the wisdom of God, refuse to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, an deny fear and trembling of the Almighty Who redeems them during their times a trouble, such as we are now experiencing in greater intensity. This unfurls many consequences which we will explore next.
16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.
As the Children of God we can cause God’s anger and passion to burn because of our abominations or tolerance of abomination such as apathy on abortion homosexuality, and witchcraft. The word bezarim or strange is not a common word but indicates strange things or strange gods. I find this provocative for a couple of reasons. The Israelite High Priest Aaron sons were killed when they offered strange fire to the Lord. And more recently the military in an AI training conference recommended that commanders tell their subordinates to what the TV series Stranger Things which really an entertainment allegory of the biblical narrative is, minus a savior. In that story-line you have strange gods which is grooming us for they day the arrive en masse upon the earth.
17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
The biblical narrative speaks of demons and other gods. How is the Christian to view the concept of other, strange gods, and multiple gods? Idols and gods are used interchangeably. This verse states that the Children of God sacrificed to demons, no-gods, gods they had never known, new ones, who came but lately, who stirred not our ancestors to fear. The problem with idols gods is that they may be made of wood or stone but with today’s technology they can animate and become the habitation of demons. This is new to our world. Hence, they become idols of demons or are demon-like in the phraseology of today’s synthetic life scientists. Some are no-gods that do not exist, except possibly in the mind of a person. These are gods without substance. The biblical foundation for this can be found in 1 Kings 18:21, Judges 6:31, 11 Kings 19:18, and Jeremiah 2:11.
It is possible that God’s anger would not have been so kindled if ancient people merely worshiped things like the sun and moon, things created by God that contained forces (Laws of Nature) that the people did not understand .but that produce delight and have purpose. Instead, the people chose to worship things that did not benefit and caused great harm to themselves and the world. These are the new gods, they or their ancestors had never known, fearful gods that produce terror. Through techno-witchcraft they then animate engineered to be the new gods of earth-the Johnny-Come-Latelies.
18 [The fear of the Mighty One who created you, you forgot]; the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
Is it possible for us to truly forget God? I think not. But we may not incorporate Him into our life or attribute praise, worship, and honor that He deserves. We forsake our relationship with Jesus when we accept fear [not Godly fear] into our lives. This is one reason that the Godly world around us is crumbling before our very eyes, because the masses have embrace the fear and terror of coronavirus rather than the living God who can destroy their life and cast their soul into hell.
When we worship God according to what is found in Holy Scripture, we will not forget Jesus, rather, our relationship will flourish.
We do not often ponder the fact that we were made by the Rock (yeladkha, Jesus Christ, who made us and gave birth to us. It is He that allowed us to be born, teshi, through the power of forgetfulness. What! You may be saying. Forgetfulness is a blessing bestowed upon mankind since it would be impossible to bear the full memory of the pain of horrible memories associated with childbirth, so God uses that blessing to erase those painful memories from your mind. Now, you have the audacity to use that blessing of forgetfulness to forget Jesus. We are repaying His goodness to us with evil.
19 And when the Lord saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
Therefore, the anger of God was kindled against us, it can be read as He scorned us. We must remember that while God, Jesus has the full range of emotion that we have although these characteristics are anthropomorphic, for we cannot fully comprehend the emotion of God the Father or Jesus. Take time to explore the emotions of Jesus and divine anger in prayer or in the Word.
The provocation of His sons and daughters trickles down to us unto this day. Much like parents today, when we behave like God’s Children, we are called Children of God (beloved by the Father and Son). When we behave rebelliously, Scripture calls us His Children.
20 And he said, I will hide [take my Shekhinah glory] my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
In the Old Testament God’s presence was the Shekhinah Glory and today it is the Holy Spirit for Christians. It represents divine presence here on earth (immanence) or in heaven (transcendence). When we devote our mind and activities away from God, we no longer have the benefit of feeling the presence of God. Jesus is involved with earthly matters and imparts that light of the Holy Spirit as a present help and Light unto our path in the darkness. General earthly oppression due to the overall condition of humanity is weighing upon many of us resulting in fatigue of Spirit, mind, and body. There are times in the Holy Writ where God hides His mercy.
The Bible says that it is revealed before Me what their end will be. This is written in the future tense in the Hebrew, for our generation. Of course, God already knows but this verse conveys the ideas of our end being seen, a place where time is irrelevant and it is literal-in the present, and vaguely, I will show them their end.
Ouuu…. the generation that changes. Are you aware that biblically speaking when the word change is used it indicates a perverse generation? Furthermore, they have no loyalty. I am seeing this so clearly within the Body of Christ. No loyalty to Jesus and no loyalty to the brethren. It is a tragic insight. The Hebrew word of loyalty is eimem and is related to the ubiquitous amen. It could mean training or loyalty. Will you hearken unto the Words of Jesus? Will you allow Jesus to train you for this season? Will you remain loyal to Him until your death? At the end of the day say Amen to His work in your life this day.
21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger [vex] with a foolish nation.
What other things can we learn about the Father and Jesus from the word provoke? It comes from the Aramaic and Hebrew root k-n-a which can translate as jealous, passionate, zealous, and provoking.
As I read these passages I keep noticing before Me, before Me. It brings to my mind the following account:
And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
2 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
3 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel.
4 And the Lord said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Israel.
5 And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.
6 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
7 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;
8 And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.
9 And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand. Numbers 25
The world today is acting perversely [through change] acting the whore and committing fornication with every unclean thing.
Our idols, fearful no-gods, are hevel: futility or nothingness. We see this in Ecclesiastes frequently. And it is used here as a highlighted insult. Idols are disparaging abominations that have no power to save. These hevel idols are the demons of our age. Why are we clinging to abominations such as corona tests, vaccines, and sensors…idols that do not have the power to save? These are subtle witchcraft schemes my friends.
What is the result of our idolatry? We have been vexed and are identified as not a people [not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life]. All of the ancient conquerors, such as the Babylonians and Romans, were labeled as not a people. Humanity has become a nation of [bumbling] fools and heretics, especially America who once held so much promise as a Godly people. We have become worse the beasts, a stupid people, who have lost control over our terrible actions. If you have ever shepherded a stupid animal, take note.
22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
For a fire has flared, the fury of Jesus. He goes forth now destroying and burning. This is not a natural burning fire, but the very fires of Sheol-Gehinnom-Hell. Graves of everlasting burning torment. Jesus is going forth to consume and set the world ablaze with His judgment.
23 I will heap [join] mischief’s upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.
The Hebrew word is aspeh and is obscure. It could denote end, use up, destroy, gather, or join.
Is wisdom a separate entity from God? We typically understand wisdom as from God the Father. But here the wisdom or memra, brings evil.
Consequently, the Lord begins to shoot His arrows of plagues of all kinds including famine.
24 They shall be burnt [swollen] with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the [fury] poison of serpents of the dust.
The word mezei is an obscure Hebrew word for swollen. There is only conjecture on what it means but when one is in the process of starvation, a person’s belly swells. Kwashiorkor is a severe form of malnutrition associated with a deficiency in dietary protein. The extreme lack of protein causes an osmotic imbalance in the gastro-intestinal system causing swelling of the gut diagnosed as an edema or retention of water.
Spiritually, this swelling of the belly occurs in the ancient biblical ritual of Sotah, a process by which the Priest, determines the fidelity of a woman to her husband, therefore it is a test for adultery. If she is innocent nothing happens but if she is guilty of adultery her belly swells.
Our plagues will include being eaten by the birds from the Hebrew root l-ch-m which can mean fighting or bread. The Hebrew word for war, milchamah, comes from the word lechem or bread, because many wars are fought over food. Some commentators state that demons come fighting with these birds. The question begs to be asked…are these natural birds or things such as Black Hawks, drones, and other robotics who provide a garment with demons inside?
We will also experience evil winds, what could these be? V’ketev meriri is another obscure word. It is almost like the Lord does not want us to know what these judgments to be otherwise we might prepare for them and He desires the full fury of His judgment to be experienced. There is a thought that these evil winds are destruction caused by the demon Meriri which comes from the root mar meaning evil.
Meiri can mean to cut. Ketev in Hebrew; see Isaiah 28:2, Hosea 13:14, Psalms 91:6. Or, ‘plague,’ ‘destruction’ (Septuagint); or ‘crushed’ (Targum).
It can include a bitter plague, or ‘bad air,’ possibly ‘malaria‘. Or, ‘unquenchable destruction‘ (Septuagint); ‘robbers‘; ‘evil spirits,’ or, ‘bad vapors’; ‘demons’; or very interestingly, ‘madness‘ see: Deuteronomy 21:18.
Ketav Meriri has power between sun and shade, and a person must be careful not to walk in an area where the two meet, the interstitial (meaning on the boarder between a Light and dark area). Jesus talks this with many metaphors.
Most of you have heard that wild beasts will attack during the End of Days. The good news that these are not domesticated animals-they will not turn and attack you, rather, the chayot or wild animals will attack you.
Topping it off will be the fury of serpents that crawl in the dust.
25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
The sword of enemy troops will invade from outside the city. Think unconventionally here. These troops can be swarms of spirits, demons, robots, nanotechnology, pathogens, chemicals, military apparatus, and so forth.
Notice the similarity of this biblical account and the novel coronavirus death populations:
· Young men
· The aged
Basically, the entirety of humanity is being cut down by the sword, as we speak, and this is only the beginning of sorrows.
Food for thought!
