John the Baptist's Isaiah 40:3-4 Proclamation, and the coming Azal highway of HASHEM

Isaiah 40:

3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the L-RD, make straight in the desert a highway for our G-D.

4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

The above is the traditional translation. But the Hebrew word pictures and amplification offers us a little something extra that most people aren't even aware of.

[Hebrew] English Translation

[Qol] “(The) Voice
{Qura] Urgently calling out, encountering and confronting
[BaMidbar] at the mouth and entryways of: oases (and their towns or cities), the open fields, the pasturelands, the alluvial plains,
the deserts, and all manner and sort of uninhabited lands.

In the Old Testament, the Wildernesses associated with locations of nearby oases with their villages or cities included:
1) Beer-sheba Genesis 21:14
2) Paran Genesis 21:21
3) Zin Numbers 13:21
4) Sin Numbers 16:1
5) Beth-aven Joshua 18:12
6) Gibeon 2 Samuel 2:24
7) Damascus I Kings 19:15
8) Kadesh Psalm 29:8

In regard to Wildernesses of whole territories, some Old Testament examples will include:
1) Egypt Exodus 20:35
2) Sinai Numbers 1:19
3) Judah Judges 1:16
4) Edom 2 Kings 3:8

[Panu] “Prepare: face, turn and look (to)
[Derek] (the) wide open and general course
[****] (Of the) L-RD!

[Yasaru] make straight, upright, level, and even
[B’arabah] in the desert plains,
among the Steppes,
in the disorder and confusion of night,
(even) in (and amongst) the Poplars

[Mesilah] a road on a raised and exalted embankment
[L’elohaynu] for our G-D.

Every Valley shall be borne up, lifted and raised;
And every mountain and hill shall crouch and bow down to lowliness;
And the foothills shall become a straight and level place,
And the banded up, the impassable and rough places, a plain.

(Isaiah 40:3-4, fully amplified and reiterated from the Hebrew with word pictures)


We see in the Hebrew word pictures a deeper insight than that left us in the Greek of Matthew 3 and Luke 3 in quoting this passage. For this reason, a return to the language which something was spoken or written can often, when correctly pursued, open our mind's eye from a black and white picture to one of color, or transform a mono sound to that in stereo. In regard to John the Baptist, BaMidbar and B'Arabah are surround-sound stereo words often heard in mono-tone...while Mecillah is also a mono-tone that needs a stereo sound to it.

There are three specific definitions regarding the Hebrew Arabah: Deserts, including desert steppes; as Ereb or Erev, suffixed, it deals with the time and disorder of darkness or night-time; and it is the word used for the poplar (inclusive of the Aspen) tree.

The poplar
is used only twice in the Bible. In Genesis 30:37, Jacob uses the interior white of a green branch, and it acts like Viagara and Cialis to the sheep and cattle, where the animals are suddenly brought into heat. But Jacob makes sure only those troughs of water and those animals he selects are given the "potency" assist. In Hosea 4:13, the Israelites were having sexual orgies under the shade of the poplars (specifically on the tops of the mountains), and also sacrificing to idols.

We are called to prepare the Way or Genereal Course of the L-RD...to exalt His ways, not ours, even if His ways run right through and amongst our sexual proclivities in pro-creation with the opposite sex marraige partner. In the above, I listed the places that John's ministry probably took him to, before staying and remaining in the Jordan River Valley Basin (betwen the Dead Sea and the Sea of Gallilee) in the last year(s) of his ministry. I believe that prophecy in and through the Hebrew, is telling us that John indeed had once traveled to all these definitions of the wilderness as listed in the Old Testament, and the several others I left out, until he actually did Baptize. Hence, he probably began with a proclamation at the walls and beginnings or endings of the Wilderness locations, until one year, he proclaimed to all Israel to spread the word and come instead to the Jordan River, and be baptized for the remission of sins.

The Locusts testify of John's holding to a vow of poverty in the Wilderness ministry, and that poverty with kosher adherence gave him great credibility

John was so poor, that he ate the kosher diet of those having no money...locusts. (Even with honey to kill the taste...Yuck!) John the Baptist ate the “Desert Locust”, native to the region. In general, he probably ate one or several of these biblical varieties:
The red locust (Hebrew: Arbeh)
The yellow locust (Hebrew: Salam)
The spotted gray locust (Hebrew: Chargol)
The white locust (Hebrew: Chagav)


When John the Baptist preached in the Wilderness, he preached Isaiah 40:3 in which we are told to go into the desert and build up a straight exalted embankment for our G-D. Why?

At the Second Temple, we know that there was a bridge that stretched forth across the Kidron Valley in direct line to the Holy of Holies...beginning on Moriah and ending eastward on Mount Olivet. At the end of that bridge, the Red Heifer was offered up and sacrificed. John was preaching Isaiah, and telling Israel that a truly prepared Israel would build an exalted embankment -- not just across the Kidron Valley -- but all the way into the Desert and to Mount Nebo itself!

In Deuteronomy 33:2 we see the descent of a warring Yeshua in Revelation 19:11-16 with supplementing passages such as Zech. 9:14 and Psalm 18:13-14.

"HASHEM came from Sinai [northward],
and rose up from Seir unto them;
He shined forth from Mount Paran,
and He came from the myriads of the holy ones at the Right Hand
[ashedath] went out to meet them." (Devarim 33:2)

Although the singular "ashed" is used only in Numbers 21:15, "ashedot" (pluralized as -"ravines" and "valley slopes") is used of that area around Nebo's peak of Pisgah (Deut. 3:17, 4:49; Joshua 10:40, 12:8). Therefore, though it might be translated as 'fiery law" in Devarim 33:2, the more correct Hebrew Word picture is hooked to a WAY or PATH...the Mesillah of Isaiah 40:3.

At the end of Days, with Jesus' return at the end of the 7 Year Trib and Great Trib Period, will the valleys and hillsides become molten, and prepare a fiery Mesillah (an exalted embankment) in a straight line from Nebo/Pisgah to the Holy of Holies in Jerusalem. Over this straight line will be a ramp of clouds, also in a straight descent, from Nebo to Olivet.

The last obstruction to be cleared in that line of sight, Olivet, will be split wide open -- north and south -- by Messiah's own feet (Zechariah 14:4). In effect, if I understand all of this correctly, a path perhaps like molten glass will be created in the earth that serves as a visible example of a "path" or "way of Law". This will in turn perhaps be in a slight but direct line valley, and eventually covered by waters flowing from the side of Messiah, even from beneath His coming throne, through the newly made Valley of Azal (at that time), ending at Mount Nebo / Pisgah.

In the Kingdom, there will be HASHEM in the Holy of Holies, ever beholding (for 1,000 years) Mount Nebo/Pisgah, as a type of Mizpah -- a type of holy heap, a witness of the scales of Heaven. This is holy heap of Nebo will act as a testimony of the Mosaic Torah, until the Messianic Age of the 1,000 years ends, and even the very concept of Time (apparently) is removed, and the Judgement of the Damned begins.

The Mesillah will run from Nebo to Jerusalem, not built up by the people, but built up by the L-RD Himself. The Law and the L-RD are inter-connected by faith and obedience done in the heat of love, and strengthened in the resolve of legacy. Not our legacy, but the L-RD's legacy. We live, and die, and are for the most part, forgotten. But the WORD of our G-D shall endure forever.

Thus, the difference is, that the One who was sacrificed as our True Passover and True Red Heifer -- that is, our True Redeemer, HASHEM Christ Jesus -- will also be the One beholding (and upholding) that molten perfectly level and even memorial Mesillah (exalted levee like embankment) that will one day run from Jerusalem to Nebo/Pisgah until all is fulfilled. And we who believe will see and behold, and think on Isaiah 40:3-4, as well.
