Patterns are clearly very relevant to Yahweh God. When He had Abraham lay out the split covenant parts and passed between them as a smoking oven and flaming torch (Genesis 15), that was a clear, oft-repeated pattern. The church that is “not by might, nor by power, but by [Yahweh’s] Spirit” (Zechariah 4), is the same pattern—two olive trees with the lampstand between them. It is the same pattern of the two cherubim with the ark of the covenant between them. It is Elijah and Elisha with the chariot of fire and horses of fire passing between them. It is Job’s former and latter blessings, with Satan’s afflictions separating them. It is the split hoof of a clean animal. And, it is the covenant whereby the man passes between the split covenant parts of the woman, making the two one flesh.
There are many more like testimonies of this essential pattern; but there is also a modification, or even fulfillment, of that pattern. In Passover we see the same pattern—Passover and Pentecost, separated by the seven days of Unleavened Bread. This would then be a 1 – 7 – 1 pattern. But, the alternate pattern of the same elements is Tabernacles. It is the seven days of Tabernacles, followed by the eighth great day, and then as Yahweh has shown the Bride, a Pentecost is added as well. Therefore, unlike Passover’s 1 – 7 – 1 pattern, it is a 7 – 1 – 1 pattern.
This latter pattern is remarkably evidenced in Moses’ trips up Mount Sinai. First he went up seven times, upon which Yahweh became angry with the sons of Israel and told Moses to go on into the Promised Land without Him. That was a curse, which is precisely what the number seven has been for 6,000 years, and more particularly in the 2,000 years of the church. But the people repented, Moses asked for mercy, and then Yahweh repented, calling Moses up the mountain an eighth time. This would thereby be a standard Tabernacles 7 – 1 pattern. But, was this the last trip up Mount Sinai? No. Six hundred years later, Elijah went up Sinai and fulfilled the promise given to Moses in Exodus 33:18-23. Therefore, here again we see the like revealing 7 – 1 – 1 pattern.
What indeed is the greater fulfillment of this 1 – 7 – 1 pattern that can be altered to 7 – 1 – 1? Again, it is the church—the first Remnant (1), followed by Christianity (7), followed by the second Remnant (1), or:
First Remnant—Christianity—Second Remnant
But, if we consider this from the standpoint of the 7 – 1 – 1 pattern, what then do we see? We see Christianity (7), then the first Remnant (1), concluding with the second Remnant (1).
Christianity—First Remnant—Second Remnant
What do we have here? First, we have the uniting of the two Remnant—no longer separated by the breach of Christianity. But also we see the testimony of the seven, eight, and nine. Clearly evidenced by the trips up Mount Sinai, the “seven” is a curse; the “eight” reverses the curse and receives the promise, but does not fulfill it; and the “nine” fulfills the promise of seeing His glory. The fact that the first Remnant is a promise-receiving eight is evident—they received the promise, which was breached by Christianity. This is the same testimony when Zerah extended his hand out from the womb, received the scarlet thread, and drew it back in. Then Perez, the breach, was born, followed by promise-holding Zerah. Once again this is first Remnant, breach Christianity, second Remnant.
And, this is the same testimony of the presidents, seven of whom died in office every twenty-year election cycle ending in zero; followed by Reagan, the eighth who reversed the curse and did not die in office; and then second Remnant Bush, the ninth.
Why do we address all of this now? Because these evidence to be the same testimony and pattern of the three forty-nine-day counts to a Tabernacles Pentecost. We have already seen that Tabernacles is a 7 – 1 (8) – 1 (9) pattern, and that the promise is received on the eight. This is of course the great-eighth-day promise that out of your innermost being will flow rivers of living water (John 7:37-38). This is undoubtedly the promise the first Remnant received, but could not truly fulfill—it was cut short and they died.
We have also seen a like testimony in the three captains of fifty with their fifty. The first two perished, and the third received the promise. Do you now see the 7 – 1 – 1 in this? Did Christianity receive the fulfillment of the promise? Did the first Remnant receive the fulfillment of the promise? Neither did. As in the 7 – 1 – 1, it is the third-part second Remnant that receives the fulfillment.
Also, did the first Remnant receive all they needed when they received Pentecost forty-nine days following Passover as written in Deuteronomy 16:9-10? They received power, but it was not sustained and did not lead them to convict the world concerning sin. Nor did Christianity convict the world concerning sin. The undeniable fact is that both works were leavened Passover Pentecost bread.
Furthermore, we see that Leviticus 23:15-16 affords an additional forty-nine days. But would it then provide what was needed? Obviously not, and we have proven this. Plus, both of these counts are identified with a leavened Pentecost.
The seeming fact at this time is that even as the 7 – 1 – 1 pattern does not find fulfillment until the third part, so the 49 – 49 – 49 pattern cannot be fulfilled until the third 49. And just as Tabernacles is incomplete and even dead without the third-part Pentecost, so the count to Tabernacles Pentecost is likewise without the third 49. Thus, in contrast to the shorter leavened-bread Passover Pentecost counts of 49 or 49 and 49, a Tabernacles Pentecost 49 – 49 – 49 is identical in outcome to the Tabernacles 7 – 1 – 1 pattern. Therefore, we see that the addition of the third 49 is essential.
In like manner, there were promises in the second just-completed forty-nine count that I did not receive. One is to get my family back, which I first began losing by virtue of the Georgia Dome in February 13-15, 1996. I need for Yahweh to demonstrate His love and reunite us. This is the promise in “The Lake House,” a movie where two are united on Valentine’s Day because of love and waiting and reversing the curse so as to be delivered from death. This I need fulfilled regarding my family with this third count.
One other point here. We noted that from the time in which Moses went up the mountain on the promise-receiving eighth trip, to when Elijah made the fulfilling Pentecost ninth trip, was 600 years. What is 600? It is six days of creation, except at the hundreds level. And as we have seen, creation itself was actually two periods of three. Also, we have seen that in each of those three days, it was, once again, the third days which produced the required results—first, trees on day three, and then man on day six. Thus, in this “Pentecost” count of 600 years from Moses—the eighth—to Elijah—the ninth—we find once again the testimony of three parts, with the fulfillment in the third part. This is the third-part forty-nine that needs to produce kingdom-receiving, fully-seeing man.
Changing the subject now somewhat, there are three covenants addressed by Yahweh that seem prominent. First is the covenant with Abraham and its like fulfillments—the male work passing between the split female works, the church. The next covenant would be the covenant with the many in Daniel 9. It too is like unto the Genesis 15 covenant in that Yahshua came in the middle of it, but in this case He fulfilled the latter three and a half years, leaving the preceding three and a half years to the Elijah. The third revealing covenant to be addressed here is the one Yahweh made following the flood. In Genesis 9:13-16 we read:
“I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
But there is more to this than just a promise not to flood the earth with water, for He has to do the like by flooding the earth with the Spirit. And where else do we see the rainbow? In Revelation 4:3 it is around the throne. And in Revelation 10 it is upon the head of the strong angel whose feet were like pillars of fire, having his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land. This is the angel who gave John the little book to eat that was sweet to his mouth and bitter to his stomach, whereupon he was told, “You must prophesy again before many peoples and nations and tongues and kings” (vs. 11). Of course John did not fulfill this, and is for the one who indeed eats the little book.
Now, let us note that what we see here with the strong angel is essentially two pillars with a rainbow. In the preceding photo of the bell arch, we see a representation of this same thing. It is two pillars with a connecting arch, a rainbow. To get straight to the point, there is little if any difference between the scarlet thread of Zerah, and the promise of the rainbow. In either case, it is the covenant that what Yahweh began, though it breach, He will fulfill in time. This is the arch, the rainbow, the promise between two pillars, two works. And when He sees the promise, He will fulfill the latter work. As we see with the angel, the first work dies in the sea, and the latter is fulfilled on the land. Equally attested, the first work is buried in the Jordan, and the latter is built in the Promised Land (Joshua 4:8-9).
What are some of Yahweh’s rainbows? The promise that He will send the flood of His Spirit to cover the earth. That He will fulfill the remaining three and a half years of the covenant with the many and establish the preceding Elijah. That He will bring Immanuel to this earth, having come the first time as Yahshua. The numerous times where He attests to something and performs it multiple periods of time later. That He will finish with the second Remnant, that which He began with the first Remnant. That He will give us the latter rain with power. That the office of the twelfth apostle will return to a man, and the serpent turn back into the Rod. Regarding this latter promise, let us examine some amazing testimonies evidenced in the rainbow.
This latter covenant is the scarlet thread, even the scarlet color seen in the rainbow. Most significantly, the bottom color of a rainbow is purple—rulership—and they proceed up to red—Satan. The rod/scepter turns into a serpent. And when there is a double rainbow, two highly revealing phenomenon occur.
First, in the second rainbow, the colors are reversed so that it begins with red and goes back to purple. What do we see? As prophesied at the burning bush, even as the rod/scepter turns into a serpent, it must be taken up again and turned back into the rod/scepter. This is precisely what we see in the second rainbow—it goes from red back into purple.
The second revealing phenomenon is the breach between the two rainbows from the red to the red, called Alexander’s band. It bears this name because a man named Alexander of Aphrodisias noted that it was characterized by darkness, a noted absence of light. How fitting that the breach between the rod/scepter turning into Satan, and Satan turning back into the rod/scepter, is darkness.
It is also interesting that Paul had a man named Alexander, who caused him much trouble (he was a coppersmith, which is red, 2 Timothy 4:14), and Paul turned him over to Satan (1 Timothy 1:20). Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of sensuality. Also, one cannot help but note that “Aphro” speaks of “Afro,” or Africa, an equal testimony to serpent-cursed Christianity. This breach of darkness between the two rainbows that is bound by red, clearly speaks of the breach period in which the Rod has turned into the serpent, and Satan rules over the church.
Yet, we do see hope in this double-rainbow promise, as the curse is indeed reversed in the second rainbow. The serpent turns back into the rod/scepter! Gratefully, this is where we are now.
And speaking of Yahweh making a covenant and our need for power, in Exodus 34:10 we read of Yahweh’s covenant with the sons of Israel when they went into the Promised Land. They were, in type, entering into the Millennial Reign; therefore, this very likely applies to the Bride as we prepare the way for the coming of Immanuel. And, quite significantly, this covenant was made when Moses went up on Sinai the promise-receiving eighth time, which gives us hope today as the fulfilling ninth. It is the like rainbow hope when Peter declared, “The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; to him you shall give heed to everything He says to you” (Acts 3:22). This was not Yahshua, but is the promised fulfilling ninth, the Elijah. Again—a rainbow covenant. Here is that Promised-Land covenant:
Then God said, “Behold, I am going to make a covenant. Before all your people I will perform miracles which have not been produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of Yahweh, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you.”
This reminds us of Yahshua’s promise in kingdom John 14:12, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to the Father.” As He also stated to the apostles, we must be “clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). And most certainly, this power is exactly what we have to have if we are to be heard today. Otherwise, we will be ignored in the rabble of the nations and the false and fruitless splendor of Christianity.
Do you realize how pervasive sin is in this world, how strongly rooted it is, sending its tendrils into every element of life, religion, society, and governance? Do you realize how much power it would take to actually begin to make a change, to impact society, to impact individual lives? Look at the profound, entirely encompassing influence of feminism. It is a cancer that has infected the entirety of mankind, to the extent that people can no longer discern the difference between right and wrong, good and evil.
How many of the women who read Bride truth now dress modestly, dress like a woman and not like a man, cover their heads, and seek to evidence a gentle and quiet spirit? This is the very problem with the whole of society—there has to come a power that is far greater than personal preference, opinion, and convenience, compelling people to radical obedience. (“Radical” means getting back to the central root.) Otherwise, men and women alike will only continue to wallow in malaise and compromise, taking the easiest and most accepted course—the broad way. People will not individually change because of the pressures of corrupted religion, society, and government. Power must therefore be evidenced!
But a word of warning, the goal and purpose is not to have power. The goal and purpose is to do the will of Yahweh and effect His change, to effect righteousness. And the degree of change that must take place in individuals, in religion, in society, and in government, will not come without power, any more than the sons of Israel could have taken the Promised Land without it. We must have the covenant promise of Exodus 34:10 in order for the Bride to make herself ready, and in righteousness to prepare the way the coming of Immanuel, God with us.
Oh, may Yahweh see His rainbow promises and fulfill them now.
