Deliverance through the Raptures, part 1

Ascents and Descents

In the Hebrew of Judaism, two important words are used when going to and from Jerusalem:

Aliyah: which means, the “ascent”, or “to go up”
Yerida: “to descend”

In the Jewish mind of 30 A.D., Aliyah generally described the 23 miles of winding caravan roads that led up into the mountains from Jericho to Jerusalem. In essence, any Jew that came from any where in the world for observance of any Leviticus 23 Festival, was considered as one who “went up” (did “Aliyah”) to Jerusalem, regardless of the elevation from which he began his journey from. Specifically, for the primary motivation of a Jewish pilgrimage to Jerusalem, the Festivals would most likely have been either Pesach (Passover), Shavuot (Pentecost), or Sukkot (Tabernacles). Aliyah also would have come to mind with Moses ascending up the mountain of Sinai/Horeb to see GOD. The traditional Jew views Aliyah as the traveling of emissaries “from the 4 corners of the earth” as “going up” to Jerusalem. The actual Aliyah or “ascent” of Elijah’s translation by fiery chariot is very often beyond the comprehension of the traditional Jew, who often (and generally speaking) is usually limited to what he sees as matter of his limits of Faith. For example: the viewable winding climb of a tribe through a mountain pass, in which they zigzag up the mountain as they ascend.

Of the Torah, the rabbis list 10 Descents of GOD. The revered Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki (A.D. 1040 - 1150), “Rashi”, in his commentary on Numbers 11:17, concurs with this view.{1} In citing that there were only 10 descents, and only “10 ascents of GOD’s glory” (Avot de Rabbi Nathan, 34:6), the rabbis are wrong. I contend that there are actually 12 clearly stated descents, or “Yeridot” in the Torah, in which GOD comes down to man. These descents are:

1) At the Garden of Eden* represented by Mount Seir {2}

2) With Enoch with whom He walked with and took**
represented by Mount Sepharah

3) At the Tower of Babel represented by Mount Gilead{4}

4) At Sodom represented by Mount Sinai{5}

5) With Jacob at Penuel* represented by Mount Shapher{6}

6) At the Burning Bush* represented by Mount Hor{7}

7) In Egypt during the night the Firstborn were slain
represented by Mount Abarim{8)

8) At Mount Horeb/Sinai* represented by Mount Hermon {9}

9) At the cleft of the Rock with Moses*
represented by Mount Gerizim{10}

10) At the Tabernacle Temple Tent*
represented by Mount Ebal{11}

11) Again at the Tabernacle Temple Tent*
represented by Mount Nebo{12}

12) Foretold as at a future time -- at the End of Days
represented by Mount Paran{13}
This will occur in 3 parts:
a) an Enochian descent very low but not touching (unseen)
b) an Elijahn that comes to about 6,000 above the Earth (seen)
c) the final descent in which His feet cleave the Mount of Olives

* In Eden, GOD comes as a friend, at Penuel as a friendly stranger, at the Burning Bush as a Holy GOD, at the cleft as the Divine from another dimension, at the Tabernacle Tent as One of Separation and Distinction who is to come in two events.

**Missing from the Rabbinic list is GOD’s walk with Enoch; which indicates both a 12th Yerida (“descent”) and an Aliyah (an “ascent”).

As it is written,
“And all the days of Enoch were 365 years:
And Enoch walked with GOD, and was not;
for GOD took him.” (Genesis 5:23-24)

Therefore, there is an additional mountain that is outside of Rabbinic mention, but inferred with Melchizedek at Salem, the future Jerusalem, a mount of Census and accounting with the nations that they might be found as acceptable as Israel's males ascending to Jerusalem 3 times a year: Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. Thus Sepharah will make a 12th descent and mountain listing within the Torah on the same level of holiness or acceptance as Mount Moriah.
Jacob at Penuel, (and Abraham with Melchizedek) is also left off by the rabbis, perhaps because this opens the eyes to Yeshua of Nazareth too easily, or perhaps for other reasons of blindness.

There are other Scriptures, which along with Enoch in Genesis 5:23-24, which support the Doctrine of the Rapture, the Descents of GOD, and His re-ascents with His saints. These, to me, are quite easy to understand after the plain sense interpretation of the passages. Let us look at some of the more elementary Scriptures on the Ascents and Descents of GOD (and His people) in the Bible. For example:

1) “GOD is gone up with a shout; YHVeH (has ascended on high)
with the sound of a ram’s horn”
(Psalm 47:5)

2) “This same Jesus, whom is taken up from you into Heaven,
shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into Heaven.”

(Acts 1:11 - KJV)

3) “For YHVeH Himself shall descend
(on the long and winding road leading down)
from Heaven with a shout,
with the Voice as the Commander of the Angels,
and with the Trump of God:
and the dead in Messiah shall rise first,
then we, who are alive and remain, shall be caught up
together, with them in the clouds, to meet YHVeH in the air:
and so shall we ever be with YHVeH.”
(I Thessalonians 4:16,17 -- translation mine)

4) “And when He [Jesus] was saying these things --
while they beheld, looking on -- He was taken up,
and a Cloud received Him from their eyes
and out of their sight.”
(Acts 1:9 -- translation mine)

5) “YHVeH thundered in the heavens,
and the Highest gave His VOICE…
He sent from above, He took me…
He brought me forth, also, into a Large Place.”
(Psalm 18:13,16,19)
6) “The Mighty GOD, YHVeH, has spoken,
and called the Earth:
from the rising of the sun, unto the going down thereof.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, GOD, has shined.
Our GOD shall come and not keep silence:
a fire shall devour before Him,
and it shall be very stormy round about Him.
He shall call to the heavens from above,
and to the Earth, that He may judge His people.
‘Gather My saints together unto Me:
those that have made a Covenant by Sacrifice.’
And the heavens shall declare His Righteousness,
for GOD Himself is Judge. Selah
.” (Psalm 50:1-6)

What is the end destination of this group that is raptured or “snatched away”: the “Large Place,” revealed in Psalm 18? Jeremiah tells us,

A glorious high throne from the Beginning,
the Place of our Sanctuary.
O YHVeH, the Hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed.
‘They that depart from Me shall be written in the Earth,
because they have forsaken YHVeH,
the mountain-artesian-well-spring-Fountain of Living Waters.”
(Jeremiah 17:12-13 - translation mine)

The end destination of the Rapture is the Throne of YHVeH, the Throne of GOD.

The Silver Trump and the coming War in the heavens
When Israel had the “Tent of Meeting”, (and also at later times in the Temples at Jerusalem) -- there were Two Silver Trumpets that were used to call the elders and the people. The Second Trump, which the Apostle Paul calls “the Last Trump’: the Dead Sea War Scroll indicates that this is to be blown “low, level, and legato” in order to “gather together the people” in times of peace, or to gather together armies in times of war. The Latin term “legato” means “even, and unbroken”. It will be to this sound, of a low and continuous foghorn-like trumpet blast , to which believers will be forewarned as they transform into beings of Light, -- in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, -- before making their Aliyah, or “ascent”, with the Angels of GOD to Heaven.

In the latter Days, through Christ’s perfect work of the Cross -- and through His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension -- we will be given a greater exit than that of Israel from Egypt. The children exited though a sea, whose walls of water were held up upon itself as though canyon walls on either side, while an east wind blew directly in their faces on the journey through it. Then, upon safely gathering through, walls of water crashed on their enemies who followed Israel through on the dry ground passage of the Reed or Red Sea.
Even so, in the End of Days, those left behind in the Second Rapture in Israel, shall also flee into the wilderness to Edom, and by a tidal wave, GOD will swallow again the enemies of Israel by water, and the Earth will open her mouth in a canyon behind the back of the Remnant or 1/3rd of the Jews of Israel. Then GOD will cover them with His cloud, in a land where (in all probability) biological and chemical weapons meant against Israel will have devoured those in Jordan instead. It is to this end, that all that remains of the enemies of Israel’s remnant ( in what was once ancient Edom), are but carcasses to be buried. And yet, still, the ascension of the Raptures is still by far the more glorious than these earthly deliverances. The Heavenly deliverance removes, once and for all, from all earthly trials and tribulations, and transforms from earthly to heavenly substance: it is the transformation from being an earthly being to being a Heavenly one, able to exist both in Heaven and upon the Earth.

In John 12:26, Jesus promises: “And where I am, there also shall My servant be.’ The Latin word, “rapturo”, which means “to snatch away quickly”, is word used in the translation of the Greek’s term for “being caught up”, in I Thessalonians 4:17.

For example, compare the plain sense of the text with Psalm 50:1-6, Acts 1:9, and 2 Kings 2:11.
“…then we, who are alive and remain,
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,
to meet YHVeH in the air:
so shall we ever be with YHVeH.”
(I Thessalonians 4:17, translation mine)

In the Torah, the Red sea is actually referred to as the “Reed Sea”. In the Hebrew, the word for “Reed” is Soof סופ, which in the first sense, means simply a “reed stalk”. In the second sense, it is also used as a verb to mean “to snatch away”; i.e., “to rapture”.

Therefore, to view the deliverance of Israel through the Reed Sea, is a form of viewing the Elijahn Rapture. The walls of water collapsing upon the pathway to deliverance shows that the War of the Heavens (Revelation 12:7-9; Judges 5:19-22) is fought primarily upon the roadway in the heavens that leads to Heaven.

Came Kings. They fought.
Then the Kings in Canaan fought in Taanach
[in the Valley of Jezreel],
by the water of Megiddo.
The unjust gain of silver, they took not.
From the heavens, fought the stars:
[the angelic hosts]
from their courses, they fought with Sisera.
The torrential river Kishon swept them away.
That ancient torrential river, the torrential river Kishon.
Then from the galloping galloping of His mighty stallions
did the horses beat the hooves.
‘Curse Meroz’, said the Angel of YHVeH, ‘Bitterly curse its inhabitants,
for they did not come to the Divine assistance and help of YHVeH,
to the help of YHVeH (as to be) among the warriors and mighty men.’”

(Judges 5:18-23 -- translation mine)

Truth stranger than Science Fiction?
It appears that the inter-dimensional “window on high” that opens up (Isaiah 24:18) will be directly above the southeast section of Megiddo, over part of the Valley of Jezreel. The inter-dimensional window will be a portal -- like the concept of an interdimensional "worm hole" -- that warps instantaneously, the distance between Heaven and Earth. The Scriptures describe the "in between" / "the inter-dimensional", as though a long winding path or road in the Greek of 1 Thessalonians 4:16.
The time equivalency in our comprehension is that is traversed in anywhere fom seconds to 15 minutes to perhaps as much as over half and hour (cf. Revelation 4:1, 8:1). Therefore, we are dealing with three dimensions, as described in Judges 5:18-23.
1) The First dimension is of this present reality that we perceive as Earth and Space.
2) The Second Dimension is some kind of in-between reality unseen and unperceived to those of the First Dimension.
3) The Third Dimension is that of Heaven itself, hence, the title of the “Third Heaven” by Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:2.

Jesus tells us of the battle tactics of that time of the Elijahn Rapture on Day 1290-1291, and the evacuation protocol, saying,

“But in those days, after that Tribulation, [of 1290 days]
the sun shall be darkened, [Joel 2:31, cf. vv. 30,32]
and the moon shall not give her light.
And the stars of Heaven shall fall,

[refers to a literal disappearance of the astronomical stars, as well as the casting down of angelic beings from Heaven to earth. That is, from the third dimension, into the second, and then perhaps also into the first dimension as well. If this last part of my analysis is correct, those angels which follow Satan as of post-Day 1291 will be as having had their “wings clipped” and thereafter be visible to the naked human eye, those dwelling upon the Earth. The technology explosion would then become incomprehensibly fast, so that speculation now is futile.
If this scenario of the clipped fallen angels becoming manifest post-Day-1291 is the case, the “kings of the East” will be angels heading humans, to fight other angels heading humans at Megiddo and elsewhere: becoming the house divided that shall not stand (Matthew 12:25-26).]

and the powers that are in Heaven shall be shaken.

[refers to a literal rippling of cosmic elements, and a bringing of war or a
“shaking” to the presence of “the Powers”; i.e., war in Heaven against GOD
the Father and the Lamb. The reverberation likened to a rippling of walls and floors as if by strikes against the foundation and support columns of a building.]

And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
And then shall He send His angels,
[His Heavenly Troops and Messengers]
and shall gather His elect from the four winds,
from the uttermost part of the Earth to the uttermost part of Heaven.”

(Mark 13:24-27, KJV - Commentary mine)

In Gematria, the word “Sisera” סיסרא holds a value of 331. This word is numerically synonymous with Ephraim אפרים, which means “Doubly fruitful”; with Chasabyahu חשביהו, which means “YH has regarded”; and with Yishyahu ישיהו, which translates as “YH will either lend or borrow, with interest.”
In Gematriac synonym, those of Sisera are borrowed or delivered from Sheol שאל. This deliverance is by GOD’s perfect and atoning work of the Cross, and the power of His eternal life and Resurrection (I Peter 3:19-20, 4:6; Matthew 27:62-28:20, 27:52-53).

In effect, Sisera represents the angelic hosts and translated believers, in the “Song of Deborah” of Judges 5.

Further, the Song of Deborah informs us of the initial success of the powers of Darkness in this battle. In Gematria, Kishon קישין holds a value of 470. It is found to be as Kimriyr [Kaf-Mem-Rosh-Yod-Rosh], “an eclipse of blackness, twice intertwined and shriveled back”. They Yedithun ידיתון , “use the hand meant for laud and worship”, to Arar ערר “to demolish and make bare”, by Ashuq עשק “pressing upon, quarreling with, and overflowing violently upon” the Saints and Sons of Light.

They do so along the Telem תלם , “the bank, or ridge of (the Heavenly sky-way), forming an accumulation.” In other words, knowing the Day of the Elijahn Rapture, they lie in wait as a force that is Token תכן, “a fixed and measured out / balanced quantity” of Kenath כנת “Companions and colleagues” thought to get the job of ambushing done. Yet, for all the intensity and fierceness of the battle, it is seen by GOD as but a Shetseph שצף, as but “a small outburst of anger”. This, in spite of the fact, that it appears at the first that the victory is granted unto the powers of darkness, who seriously pounce the Elijahn Rapture translation of believers and their Heavenly Escort.

Now whether it will be participated in by hundreds of fighter or some kind of more technologically advanced warfare aircraft{14} who enter into the temporarily opened up vector warp-stream or inter-dimensional passageway that leads from earth to Heaven, or the battle is fought solely by angelic hosts against angelic hosts and translated/transformed believers, we shall have to wait and see. Isaiah 24:18 speaks of "windows on high are opened", and I take from this that an interdimensional portal or window or worm-hole is meant.
In all likelihood, it will be a combination assault through this "window on high", as indicated by the curse against Meroz (which appears to be telling us) of man-machine-and spirit beings assaulting spirit beings accessing the portal over Megiddo. It is these that those of “Meroz”, the armies and air forces of the Jordanians and Saudis, to which the curse of GOD appears in Ezekiel 35:3-5. Further, we learn in Obadiah 11-14, that in the time Israel needed assistance most, during this battle and invasion of Heaven and the Land of Israel, those of Esau (the so called “Palestinians”), stood in the crossways and laid ambush and slaughtered their Jewish “cousins”. And even, after all this, it is not we -- the saints and angels -- who will be victorious to save (Luke 10:18-20), but YHVeH Himself must intervene to save us and those of Israel’s remnant upon the Earth at this time. For, according to the Scripture,

“YHVeH shall be seen over them,
and His arrow shall go forth as lightning:
and YHVeH GOD shall blow the trumpet,
and shall go with the whirlwinds of the south.
YHVeH of hosts shall defend them…."

(Zechariah 9:14-15a)

"...The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground."
(Jeremiah 25:30-33)

The battle between Satan and his angels and Christ and his angels and those who are the redeemed believers, must not be taken lightly. It will not be a couple of blows, then a cry for help, and no more pain. Rather, this battle is so fierce, that we who will engage in the battle, must fight with all our existence, so that we love not even our second life unto death. That means a violence threatening those who are eternal with extinction is made by Satan and those who follow him. We are told that in order to overcome, and protect those at the seen or Elijahn Rapture, we must fight (John 18:26) after this manner:
“…they overcame by the blood of the Lamb,
and by the word of their testimony,
and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
(Revelation 12:11) KJV

The key word in Revelation 12:11 is “lives”. Those engaged in the battle had already died once, they are covered in the blood of Jesus, so that it is said, “Where, O death, is thy sting?” (Isaiah 25:8, I Corinthians 15:55). They are given the power and equality to take on angelic beings of great power and stature. They are not discouraged in the battle, for the word of their testimony bears them witness that they are destined to overcome in and through Christ, even as they overcame the world through Christ in their first life here on earth. Therefore, the fanaticism and empowerment of those of us upon the LORD’s side will more than equally match those who fight against the LORD, and fight knowingly that it is their one and only perceived chance, to avoid their sure destruction and doom. However, there still is another battle yet to come, and it is seen when we take sin -- in the form of the Seraph of Satan -- and nail his sorry ass to the Cross. In doing so, we once again see Christ taking even Satan’s guilt upon Himself, paying for more than just the sin of mankind at the Cross.

The Brazen Serpent, and Anti-Christ
"And spoke YHVeH to Moses,
'Make yourself a Seraph,
and set it on a pole. And it shall be:
when anyone is bitten -- when he sees it, he shall live.'
And Moses made a bronze seraph, and put it on a pole. And it was:
if a serpent had bitten any man, when he looked to the serpentine of bronze,
he lived.” (Numbers 21:8-9, translation mine)

Tertullian refers to this Scripture in his writings, and comments:
"Why, again, did the same Moses, after the prohibition of any
'likeness of anything,' [Exodus 20:4], set forth a brazen
serpent, placed on a 'tree,' in a hanging posture, for a spectacle
of healing to Israel, at the time when, after their idolatry,
[Numbers 21:4-6], they were suffering extermination by serpents,
except that in this case, he was exhibiting the LORD's (Cross)
on which the serpent, the "devil", was "made a show of". And
for every one hurt by such snakes, that is (the devil's) angels …
he who then gazed intently upon (the symbolism of the Cross)
was freed from the (potency of the) bite of the serpents."
(Tertullian, An Answer to the Jews, .10)

That very serpent of bronze was kept as part of the Temple until the reign of Hezekiah. In his reign, Hezekiah destroyed it because it became as an idol to be worshipped mistakenly, as though it were somehow the physical form of GOD in Exodus 3:14, fully contradicting Genesis 1:26-27 because of the term of Asher, which was associated with the brazen Seraph. Yet, a reminder ever resides upon the High Priest, for on the linen undergarment of the High Priest, the girdle or sash, finely embroidered as with flowers and such, takes the form as though a serpent upon him, four fingers in width (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, 3.7.2.).

We therefore see the High Priest, Melchizedek, the high priest of Heaven and Earth, taking sin upon Himself both in Heaven and upon the Earth, in symbolism of type, and literally. In other words, there is a Heavenly dimension and aspect to the Cross that we are blind to, in which YHVeH Messiah was manifest also in the Heavenly at the time of His crucifixion. But, in order to avoid confusion, and to prevent the worship of the serpent upon the high priest, we read of a king gifted with a right heart and foresight:
And Hezekiah…"turned away the High Places,
and broke in pieces the standing pillars,
and cut down the Asherah,
and beat to bits the Serpent of Bronze that Moses made,
for in those days,
the Sons of Israel burned sacrifices to it,
and he called it Nehush-tan."

(2 Kings 18:4 - literal){15}

Nehush-tan literally means, "copper-dragon".{16} The Book of Revelation in 12:9, warns that the dragon is the devil, regardless of what name he uses. We find in Revelation 1:13 that Christ, our High Priest, as YHVeH Messiah, has taken the sash (the burden of sin, and its full atonement) upon Himself. He is our “sin-bearer” who takes away the sins of the world. As for the prodigy of sin, ol’ hatin’ Satan, his location in the end of Days will be stabilized upon the Earth following the defeat in the heavens of the next dimension, where-after he inhabits the person whom will be called Teitan (Titan), the glorious shining one, “the sun”, or to us: Anti-Christ. Teitan/Anti-Christ’s coming location, and his offenses directed against the people of Israel, are seen more easily in the Hebrew and Septuagint (LXX) translations. The following is my own word study amplified version from the Hebrew, and supplemented from the (LXX), which process brings out the word pictures of the verse most clearly: (the joined asterisks are word pictures).

YHVeH shall visit with His tearing*ankle*that*comes*fiercely*down,
and (with His) great*loud*and*ancient*and*many*in*number [angels and saints, as though a] -- hardened*strong*stubborn*and*severe* Sword on the Leviathan, the fleeing Serpent; even on the Leviathan, the Serpent who*perverts*and*unlawfully*accuses*out*of*context;
and He shall slay the Dragon (of the Fig Trees [LXX: ton sykon] )
which is in (the midst of) the Western Sea.” [the Mediterranean]
(Isaiah 27:1 - my translation)

The Anti-Christ therefore comes out of a land jut or island in the midst of the Mediterranean. This limits the origin of the coming deceiver primarily to the islands of the Aegean, or to Cyprus, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta; or to the peninsulas of Greece and Italy. He may have an embassy in Jerusalem, but he will rule from the midst of the Western Sea, the Mediterranean. We who either precede in death, or are translated in the Enochian Rapture, will never know with any certainty the identity of Anti-Christ. His identity will most likely be hidden from us who are going in the Unseen and Sudden Enochian Rapture.
However, in all likelihood, Anti-Christ indwelt by Satan only after psot-Day-1291, following the Elijahn Rapture and failed War in Heaven, will probably headquarter from the Vatican in Rome, which he will simply walk in and take over. This is why “Roman Catholicism” is called what it is, “Roman universality”. It is not Christ’s Catholicism, nor Jewish Catholicism, nor a Jerusalem Catholicism; but “Roman”, which St. Peter himself declared to be “Babylon” (I Peter 5:13). Therefore, regardless of the warnings of its founding apostles, Peter and Paul, the world will be united in all its errant doctrines under this one roof - forsaking Christ and His apostles, for “peace and unity” with one another.
The goal, thereafter then, will be to build a war machine that will penetrate the second dimension yet again, as though it were one world building a second tower of Babel. Therefore, the question may arise: Could it be that the kings of the East and Anti-Christ from Europe in the West, are actually joining forces at Megiddo in order to reopen the interdimensional portal and being slaughtered by the Heavenly Hosts as Isaiah 27:1 strongly suggests? Such a speculation is outside what I am aware of in Scripture, but I cannot summarily discount it as a possibility. In such a scenario, the hail that rains down from the heavens, raining the earth with stones and ice measuring an average of 70 - 100 lbs in weight (Revelation 16:21), crushing the armies of darkness like bloody grapes (Revelation 15:19-20, 16:19) might fit such a scenario? I really don't know one way or the other, but must for now assume that the Kings of the East and the armies of Anti-Christ are warring first for physical world domination with conventional weapons as the most likely interpretation, as has been believed an accurate interpretation for hundreds of years.


1 Doron, “Rashi’s Torah Commentary”, p. 177-178. The following listing of the 11 descents and their prospective mountains, is inspired by my study after reading this passage. The following citation of Avot de Nathan is also cited by Doron, p. 178.

2 Mount Seir is representative of Heaven, the hidden city of Petra (hid by Mount Seir) is likened to Heavenly Jerusalem. The garden lies in the East. In Heaven, “paradise” -- the garden of GOD -- is also in the East, and is likened to the Garden of Eden. Or vice versa, the Garden of Eden was likened to the paradise of Heaven.

3 Mount Sepharah literally means the mount of the Scroll or Census taking. It is when GOD looks at the Lamb's Book of Life, and calls up the living and the dead in a resurrection and transformation of those in His Book to beings possessing bodies with the capacity of eternal life. It is a passage of Descent and Ascent by GOD missed by the Rabbis.

4 Mount Gilead is the possession of Israel that was East of the Jordan River, and seized by Reubenites, Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh (Joshua 1:12; Josephus, Antiquities, 12.8.3). It is a land of coveted possession, such as the religion handed down by Babel’s kingdom to us today: mamonism.

5 Mount Sinai is known for its smoke and fire, from GOD’s holy presence, melting like running lava (Exodus 19:18). This is likened to the judgment of Sodom: fire and brimstone (Genesis 19:24,28).

6 שפר Shapher is actually Shofar. The proper translation is that the children of Israel moved to the Mount of the “beautiful and glistening Coronet”. This refers to Israel’s relationship with GOD, both in the wilderness and in the end of Days, how that they would wrestle with GOD. That wrestling, as revealed by the activity lasting into daylight, would take all the time that GOD has allotted to the world, before bringing in His Kingdom by force. However, by lasting as long as he did, Jacob prevailed with GOD in ensuring the preservation of his descendants after him, and holding GOD to such an oath “to bless by casting forth His lightning” upon Jacob and his descendants (Genesis 32:26). Cf. ברק / ברך.
The rabbis ignore this biblical passage in counting the descents of GOD, because it fouls up 10 commandments being neatly packaged up in 10 descents of GOD. I have included it, because its recognition also points to Christ (Matthew 24:27; Luke 17:24,30).

7 Mount Hor is in the area east of the Dead Sea, in Edom. It is the burial place of Aaron, and Job insinuates this location (Job 30:4) as a place of derision for fools. Mount Hor was once known to have been covered with Junipers, whose roots are edible, and a known food to modern Bedouins as well. It, like the Burning Bush, was considered as a place of “holy ground” because Israel’s first “high priest” is buried there. The burning bush was probably an Acacia, sometimes called after “Rachel”, Jacob’s first and one true love. This again, is representative of YHVeH Messiah, and the love that we are to have for Him. The Burning Bush not only signifies the Cross, but the people of GOD, who He will inhabit in the End of Days. That is, GOD will one day indwell His Saints, and they won’t be burned up, etc.

8 Moses went up to the isolated peak of Mount Nebo, in the Abarim mountain range. The location was labeled Pisgah, because here, Moses was cut off from his people. GOD allowed him to view the Promised Land, but to not go in. Here, he was said to have died, cut off as the Firstborn of the nation of Israel, who wailed as loudly as those “Egyptians” whose firstborns were cut off just prior to the Exodus (cf. Deuteronomy 32:48-52, 34:1-8 / Exodus 12:29-30).

9 Mount Hermon lies north of the Sea of Galilee, and is nicknamed “Mount Snowy” by the Arabs (using a free translation). Its perpetual year round snow gives it the appearance of purity, and from the snow, flows streams of living waters; which eventually empty into the Sea of Galilee.

10 Mount Gerizim is identified with Moses in the cleft of the cliff-rock, and is blessed because he gets to see YHVeH’s after-glow. That is, he is privy to the deliverance of the seen or Elijahn Rapture in the end of days (e.g., Revelation 11:11-12).

11 Mount Ebal is the mount of cursing. GOD twice appears at the Tabernacle Tent. In this first occurrence, it is to chase the Israelites out of the Tabernacle by the presence of the Shekinah glory. Rashi is of a mind, that unless there are 22,000 (Levites and priests), the Shekinah glory of GOD will not reside in Israel. (Cf. Doron, ibid, pp. 174-175.) Therefore, until Israel in these last Days consecrates 22,000 Levites and Kohen for Temple Service, according to the rotational calendars of the priests (e.g., Luke 1:5,8), the Shekinah Glory of GOD will not return to Israel and its Temple Mount.

12 The second appearance of YHVeH at the Tabernacle Tent has to do with the cutting off of all Israel over age 20, except for faithful Caleb and Joshua (Numbers 14:1ff.).

13 Mount Paran is the mount of revelation, of opened prophecy; which is saved for the end of days. When YHVeH comes in the Raptures, each time He will appear first over Paran (Deuteronomy 33:2; Habakkuk 3:3), and then go forth from there. While the entry or inter-dimensional portal for the Heavenly armies enters over Paran, during the Elijahn Rapture, the inter-dimensional warp-portal exits (or returns) over the region of Galilee. Re: “the silver trump and the coming war in the heavens”, this chapter. The portals at the seen rapture will be separated by as many as 100-105 miles apart, or something to this effect. The entry / exit strategy of the Enochian or unseen rapture, which precedes this Elijahn Rapture by 3 ½ years, is apparently a Heavenly military secret.

14 I use the term fighter aircraft loosely. I believe that we will enter an era of a highly revolutionary and new technology in an extremely tight period of months or weeks, which will be the manifestation from or with the minds of fallen angels and Satan the fallen cherub, now being free to utilize earthly resources in the developing kingdom of Anti-Christ. This New Technology Revolution will be a pre-cursor to the coming Hyper-Technology that will follow this failed assault on Heaven in Days 1290-1291. Satan will then utilize the kingdom of the Beast and Anti-Christ to develop mechanized sorceries even more highly advanced than what Science Fiction writers can now only dream about. The purpose of those wizardries of craft will be for the “War of Return”, to fight against Christ and all His Heavenly hosts, when He returns with them on Day 2625 (being Day 1335 from the first failed assault). This will not explode into being until the days following the destruction of exactly half the Earth’s population on Days 1290-1291.

16 We know from the Scriptural inferences that the Seraph attains the qualities of a snake, because it identifies the Seraph whom we call the Devil, to be the snake that caused the spiritual deaths of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden in Genesis chapter 3. What is missed, however, is how prophecy often reveals many of the questions we wish to know about the end times and the Cross via the Seraph. For example, in Genesis 49:17, we see the origins of Anti-Christ through a Sanhedrin in the end times. A man of the tribe of Dan (who comes from the midst of the western sea, probably Greece or Italy: Isaiah 27:1), rises up as a ruler among them in the Land of Israel in the Sanhedrin, and then, his ascent to power commences amazingly from there -- as it is written,
"Dan shall judge his people as one of the Tribes of Israel.
Dan shall be a Serpent
[heb - nechush];
(and) on the Wide Course [heb. - Derek] (as) a horned snake;
on the well traveled path (or highway), (as one) that bites the horse's
heel, so that its rider falls backwards."
(Genesis 49:17 - my Translation)

What is the significance of the second part of this verse? The Wide Course is the highway of the world system, the easy road that "the many" will choose in preference to the straight and narrow way that leads to salvation. According to Jesus, the Wide Course or Derek is likened to the broadness of a vast and wide open countryside (Gr. - euruchoros), to which each and every way is right in one's own eyes, but the end result is to one's own destruction (Matthew 7:13-14). Thus, the counsel of this "shining one" is to accept and reinforce the fatal deceit of the easy Course that leads to destruction, and to attack the narrow way and its teachings, which will lead safely to eternal life. The fact that the horned snake bites the rider's heel, suggests that it is given a kingdom for a little while, and makes its assault by attempting to remove anything that uplifts or supports the rider: persecution such as rocks the sanctity of the Church and its faith into Christ to the very core. The fact that the horned snake bites the horse's heel, shows that it is for the end times at a point when the Church was not aware or watching. It also shows that the servants, to whom the horse (being the Church) and its rider (being Christ) have been entrusted, have either fallen asleep, were apathetic to the snake, or aligned themselves with the snake over the horse and rider: perhaps, a little of all three possibilities.

But what happens after this? The book of Job informs us,
"By His Spirit, the Heavens were made beautiful:
His Hand pierced and thrust through the snake (as it was) fleeing."
(Job 26:13 - translation mine)

The snake will be pierced, and shook off into the lake of fire with as much ease as Paul shook off the poisonous snake that bit him (when on the isle of Malta) into the fire (Revelation 20:10, Acts 28:1-5).
What else can we learn? We see that in Exodus 4:3, that the staff of Moses becomes a serpent. By Exodus 7:9,12 however, it becomes an instrument in the hand of Aaron. Now, in Aaron's hand, the serpentine staff smites the waters of Egypt. In response, the river becomes as blood, and the fish die (Exodus 7:15 ff.). The river represents the power and the will of GOD, while the fish represent people -- even as Christ told the Disciples, "I will make you fishers of men.” (e.g., Mark 1:17). The staff represents the origin of this persecution as the Seraph of wood, the means of reason of offense -- which is the Cross. Aaron represents the Holy Spirit who offers the Gospel to the whole Earth, while Moses becomes a type or allegory for Christ The Gospel -- as it were -- becomes Aaron, or a type after the manner of GOD the Spirit, who warns in the last days by both word and power. And even as the blood remains for 7 days in the waters, so is the Tribulation and Great Tribulation 7 years according to a man; and man's sin state 7 days according to how GOD reckons time, or 7,000 years for a man.

And so, we look to En Rogel, the temporary burial place of Messiah following Calvary, and the location of Stone of Zoheleth, "the stone of the fearful and crawling (serpent)". In Gematria, the Eben ha-Zoheleth of I Kings 1:9, has a value of 498. Even here, we find the end- result of the victory of the Resurrection of Jesus, and His conquering death; as well as the comfort of faith and trust into Him because of the Resurrection. Those 3 primary Hebrew equivalents of "Stone of Zoheleth" are:
1) חצרר Chatsorer - to trumpet, or to blow the trumpet
2) םנחת Manachath - a safe resting place in which to set down, to rest.
3) תנחם Tanchum - The compassion, comfort, or consolation which brings peace.

I suspect then, that the precise location of the Cross, and the tomb at En Rogel, are 216 feet or 144 cubits from one another, which will aid our determining the precise location of Christ’s Resurrection site.
