Have you ever used a word, and didn't really know what it meant? Sometimes when studying our Father's Word, we have to buckle ourselves down, put that old thinking cap on, and get to root of what is being said.
Man, will change the meaning of a word, whenever he/she sees fit. It's faster, it's not time consuming, and the conversation is spent reading between the lines.
Ever read a txt mgs, or been in a chatroom?
Abrvs r n! LOL! ?
But you know, in our Father's Word, you can't do that, when he uses a word, to teach you something, he means just what that word means. WAIT
Let's take that word Wait back to the original language that it was written in: (Hebrew) http://www.htmlbible.com/sacrednamebiblecom/kjvstrongs/index2.htm
In the book of Exodus 21:1, our Father gave Moses the judgements, he should use, concerning the crime, and the penalty. Exodus 21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.
If you smite a man, and he dies, you are to be put to death, no questions asked.13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.
If you did not lie behind a bush, a tent, a tree, a camel, hide out in the flock, or sit there, and wait
for the man, and your God put you in the position, to do the right thing, I'm going to make sure you have a safe place to go, so you won't be killed.
(See Numbers 35)
Now let's go to the book of Numbers and see how our Father uses the word wait
.Numbers 3:10 And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall wait on their priest's office: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
Their job was to handle all work that was wholly to God, concerning the tabernacle and the tent. The Levites, the first born, only, where to put it up, take it down, keep it wholly, inside and outside, and clean, no funny stuff, no false teachings, no junk! And check this out, don't give them any property, and no land, for themselves, because they belong to me! When they wait
on the priest office, they are waiting
Remember when In the book of Exodus 21:1, our Father gave Moses the judgements, he should use, concerning the crime, and the penalty.
Exodus 21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.
You know why? They were traveling. They were still trying to reach the land of Canaan, their inheritance. Let me ask you a question? Would you feel comfortable traveling with a murderer? Always looking over your shoulder, wondering who he's going to strike next! Our Father said; nip it! in the bud! right then!
Ok now, the children of Israel have reached the land of Canaan, and they are getting ready to go in, but before they do so our Father speaks to Moses in Numbers 35:1
in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho. He's going to lay down some ground rules, because now they are actually going to be settled down on their land.
In Numbers 35:2 thru 10
, The LORD spoke to Moses, and Commanded the children of Israel, (the 11 tribes), to give a portion of their inheretance to the Levites. It would be cities for them to live in, and suburbs, to put their cattle on, so they could continue, to be about our Father's business.
Now after this was done, They were to make 6 cities, a city of refuge, 3 on this side of Jordan, and three in Canaan. 11 Then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth any person at unawares.
This is for anyone who, makes a mistake or inadvertent transgression, in error, ignorance, at unawares; unwittingly. They didn't mean to slay anyone, it was an accident.
12And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger; that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment.
So if the next of kin, (avenger) comes to kill the person, (slayer) who made the mistake in killing his loved one, the slayer can go there, and stay until he goes before the judge.
Put your thinking Caps on! Numbers 16 thru 18
If he Smite, (Hit, Strike), him with an instrument of iron, and he dies, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death, if he strike him with throwing a stone, and he dies, he is a murderer, if he strikes him with a hand weapon of wood, and he dies he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
If he uses any kind of weapon, to kill, he shall be put to death. Why? because he meant to kill him! 19 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him, he shall slay him.
Now pay attention! IF the revenger (the next of kin), just so happens to come across the murderer's path, or run into him randomly, or just happen to meet him, and the murderer, starts an argument, and they get into a fight, the revenger (next of kin) has a right to kill the murderer. Why? Because the murderer wants to kill him too!
20 But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of wait, that he die;
21 Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that smote him shall surely be put to death; for he is a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he meeteth him.
If the revenger, has hatred in his heart, and he shoves the slayer with all his might, or if he strikes him with malice in his heart, he has waited
and planned what he was going to.do If the slayer dies, then the (slayers) next of kin, has the right to slay the revenger, when he meet him.
In other words, what goes around, comes around.The Avenger became a Revenger because, he laid in wait.
Now let's take another look at the way our Father uses the word wait
. In the book of Jeremiah, our Father is really upset.
Jeremiah 5: 7 How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses.
Are you sitting in the harlot's house (church) every sunday, or whatever day you go to church, and listen to them tell you lies, like you're going to be raptured up out of here! A Harlot, will tell you anything, and do anything, just to get your money.
They're not telling you that satan and his workers are going to be sitting in Jerusalem for five months, defacto, decieving, people and stealing peoples souls.
They're not telling God's children, that Satan is the one riding the FIRST
White Horse in: Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Jeremiah 5:26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait
, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.
These preachers and so-called teachers are to catching you in a net, setting a trap, occupying your mind with junk. They stick together, they take wages by the day or year. They were hired Harlots. They are morally wrong; concretely, an (actively) bad person, condemned, guilty, ungodly, wicked MEN AND WOMEN, that do wrong. They are laying in wait
Have you ever taken a pacify out of a babies mouth; when they are sucking on that thing real goood? Whew!! Are you being pacified, with false religions? Holding on to that. Rapture Theory?
His children have forsaken him, they're not listening to him, ther're listening to the false teachers, preachers, false prophets, anyone who claims to be teaching the true word of God, and all they are doing is killing the souls of his people. They are murderers of the soul. They are leading his children straight to satan.
Our Father reminds us again, in The New Testament, by the teachings of Paul, when he was speaking to the Ephisians in: 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Paul is telling us, don't be fooled by the instructions, doctrines, learnings, and teachings of, false apostles; false prophets; false evangelists; false pastors and false teachers. They are murderers of the soul!
So let's keep in mind, what David told us in the book of:Psalm 27:14
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
We need to bind together, gather together, patiently tarry, wait
, be strong, be of good courage, hold fast, and behave ourself valiantly. We should be alert, physically and mentally. If you run into some rough things, Our Father will strengthen us, care for us, and give us wisdom and understanding, when we seek him through his word, not the traditions of mans words.
for the rider of the SECOND
white horse that. John saw in: Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
