TABERNACLES PENTECOST, 2005
What you are going to learn in this addendum is critical to understanding the kingdom of God and what it takes to bring Yahshua’s return.
There are three specific things that identify the thrust of the Bride, making it unique from any other work – government, intercession, and faith. That which we the Bride do is by faith. The trinity of faith is to first hear from Yahweh, to then believe Him, and then to act. This is the means whereby the Bride seeks to function. And, much of that which we do is, of necessity, per the work of intercession. Anyone who has read here knows this to be the case. Intercession/identification gains both authority and understanding. The other critical part of the Bride is government, which is the focus of this section. Yahweh is order and structure. All one has to do is to look at the universe and then at an atom, and see that He repeats Himself. Yahweh has patterns. One can call this order government or patterns or even law. They are all the same. Anything Yahweh performs is according to His replicable ways, and the purpose of the Bride is to learn those ways, to seek to walk in them with understanding and wisdom, and to gain victory from them.
If a people are to reverse the corruption and death that has been on man for 2,000, or even 6,000 years, it will be because they have learned Yahweh’s ways, and through faith, intercession, and government will legally effect the much needed change. If Yahshua restored the garden of Eden by intercession per the Nazirite vow, then we the Bride can only effect the critical and much needed changes today by like understanding and intercessoral acts.
Regarding this order, this government, that Yahweh follows, we read in Exodus 25:8-9 concerning the construction of the tabernacle in the wilderness:
"Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell among them. According to all that I am going to show you, as the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furniture, just so you shall construct it.”
And in 1 Chronicles 28:19-21 we read the like instruction per the construction of Solomon’s temple:
"All this," said David (the eighth), "Yahweh made me understand in writing by His hand upon me, all the details of this pattern.” Then David said to his son Solomon (the ninth), "Be strong and courageous, and act; do not fear nor be dismayed (the same command given to Joshua when they entered the Millennial promised land), for Yahweh God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you until all the work for the service of the house of Yahweh is finished. Now behold, there are the divisions of the priests and the Levites for all the service of the house of God, and every willing man of any skill will be with you in all the work for all kinds of service. The officials also and all the people will be entirely at your command."
This specified instruction is repeated in Acts 7:44, as well as in Hebrews 8:4-5 where we read:
Now if He were on earth, He would not be a priest at all, since there are those who offer the gifts according to the Law; who serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, just as Moses was warned by God when he was about to erect the tabernacle; for, "SEE," He says, "THAT YOU MAKE all things ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN WHICH WAS SHOWN YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN."
So what is the church? It is the tabernacle and the temple of Yahweh. As we read in Exodus 25:8, the church is the sanctuary for Yahweh to dwell among man; and clearly that sanctuary follows a pattern that He set forth thousands of years ago. And most importantly, if the tabernacle and the temple had different divisions and was not one big court with furniture standing out in the open for all to see, and if the ark of the covenant had different elements that spoke of different functions and coverings, then how is it that Christians regard the church with such inconsistent monistic simplicity, thinking that they are the only work? Their concept is extremely shortsighted, naïve, and inconsistent with Yahweh’s ways.
The church is the tabernacle and the temple of Yahweh. To begin with, Christianity is the wilderness period of the church; therefore, the tabernacle in the wilderness speaks of Christianity. But on the other hand, Solomon’s temple is the Bride, built with 666 talents of gold which came from prophetic Christianity, or Africa – the Bride coming out of the body. Before creation Yahweh knew how He would build His church, and He has specific order and government, a pattern, that He follows, which for numerous reasons has been beyond the understanding of the natural mind (though always right there before us). The purpose of this addendum is to expound further on this government, His divine order and pattern, particularly as it relates to the church as the seventh, and adding the eighth, the ninth, and the tenth.
We began noting in the previous section the necessity of not only adding the eighth that reverses the curse, but the essential conclusion of adding the fulfilling ninth. To further address this, let us quote from the writing, Coverings. And we might add here, one should note that the Bride truth is a living ever-expanding continuum of truth, built on truths that have been foundational to this ever-increasing understanding. That which we learned five, ten, fifteen, even twenty-five years ago, is as true and relevant today as it was then, availing new understanding today.
(The third testimony of paired coverings are those) over the ark of the covenant, which contained the Law of Yahweh. The Law is impossible for man to keep while in his flesh, and needs a covering. This first physical covering necessitated by the Law, for the Law exposes our nakedness before God, was the mercy seat with the covering cherubim.
And the cherubim shall have their wings spread upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings and facing one another; the faces of the cherubim are to be turned toward the mercy seat (Exodus 25:20).
For the cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubim made a covering over the ark and its poles from above (1 Kings 8:7).
Now, where there is one covering, Yahweh bears testimony to His presence (or His judgment when withdrawn) by a second spiritual covering. Let us see what this second covering was.
And He (Aaron or the high priest) shall put the incense on the fire before Yahweh, that the cloud of incense may cover the mercy seat that is on the ark of the testimony, lest he die (Leviticus 16:13).
This second spiritual covering, revealing
the presence of Yahweh, was the cloud of incense. The third pair of
coverings we see then is the mercy seat with the covering cherubim and
the cloud of incense. So, we find the third covering example to be graphically
represented as follows.
Here we find the critical pattern of the church! We have noted that this pattern is the Passover 1–7–1. This is true chronologically; but per the first resurrection, it is also the Tabernacles 7–1–1. Both of these are of course the nine-part pattern, which is precisely what we find here regarding the ark of the covenant.
Per the Tabernacles pattern, the ark itself is Christianity, or the 7. As we have addressed before in these writings, the two-part Remnant is the covering over the body of Christ/Christianity. Therefore, the two cherubim are in fact the eighth and the ninth. Thus we see the following pattern.
This of course comprises the complete church. As noted at the opening of this section, if you do not have this understanding of the church, then you can never comprehend the kingdom of God, the sanctuary Yahweh is building in order to dwell among man. Christians are incredibly and fatally mistaken to think that they alone are the church. That would be like an ark of the covenant without a mercy seat. It would be a premature Saul without a curse-reversing David and promise-fulfilling Solomon. Thus it would also be accurate to lay this out in the following way as well, once again seeing the 7–1–1, Saul–David–Solomon, pattern.
There is a man named Scott Flansburg, also called “The Human Calculator,” who has noted that governmentally, our number system is based on a 0 to 9 foundational pattern. Thus, the first ten digits are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The number 10 starts another numeric level. There are many who note this, but what makes Scott unique (aside from being the human calculator) is that he has noted that if you add the digits of any number, and subtract that sum from the number, the sum of the results will always equal down to 9. For example, the sum of 96, or 9 + 6, is 15. Then, 96 – 15 = 81. And, 8 + 1 = 9. Try this with any number.
429 (4 + 2 + 9 = 15) – 15 = 414 (4 + 1 + 4 = 9)
6,943 (6 + 9 + 4 + 3 = 22) – 22 = 6,921 (6 + 9 + 2 + 1 = 18) (1 + 8 = 9)
58,327 (5 + 8 + 3 + 2 + 7 = 25) – 25 = 58,302 (5 + 8 + 3 + 2 = 18) (1 + 8 = 9)
Also, quite uniquely, if you multiply nine by any whole number, and repeatedly add the digits of the answer until it is just one digit, it will likewise end up as 9. Furthermore
2 x 9 = 18 (1 + 8 = 9)
9 x 9 = 81 (8 + 1 = 9)
234 x 9 = 2,106 (2 + 1 + 0 + 6 = 9)
578,329 x 9 = 5,204,961 (5 +
2 + 0 + 4 + 9 + 6 + 1 = 27) (2 + 7 = 9)
Furthermore, one of the governmental qualities
of Yahweh is that He creates mirror images. This
divine order is uniquely evidenced with the number 9.
When 9 is multiplied by any number, the resulting number when “mirrored”
can be evenly divided by 9. No other number
can do this.
9 x 1 = 9 or 9 = 1 x 9
9 x 2 = 18 or 81 = 9 x 9
9 x 3 = 27 or 72 = 8 x 9
9 x 4 = 36 or 63 = 7 x 9
9 x 5 = 45 or 54 = 6 x 9
9 x 6 = 54 or 45 = 5 x 9
9 x 7 = 63 or 36 = 4 x 9
9 x 8 = 72 or 27 = 3 x 9
9 x 9 = 81 or 18 = 2 x 9
9 x 10 = 90 or 9 = 1 x 9
And quite strikingly, numbers associated with the Remnant, such as 72, 153, and 666, are equally divisible by 9, as well as add up to 9 (7 + 2 = 9, 1 + 5 + 3 = 9, 6 + 6 + 6 = 18 and 1 + 8 = 9). Of course we had 18 at the Tabernacles Pentecost gathering.
Scott points out that “every number in the universe goes back to nine.” The divine order of the universe is built around the number 9. Thus we see once again according to Yahweh’s order and government, the incredible significance of adding the fulfilling ninth. Every number in the universe eventually points back to adding the fulfilling ninth.
Before we consider further the ninth and the sequences that lead up to it, as noted in the last section, the presence of the 7–1–1 pattern, or adding the eighth and the ninth, leads to the ultimate necessity of adding the tenth. As noted though, the tenth is not in the same realm as the ninth, or anything below it, for the tenth is a new beginning, a higher level. It is a number that exists outside of the prior realm. Everything below it occupies a lower realm. Thus we see per the ark of the covenant, while the seventh realm is Christianity, or the ark per se; and the eighth and ninth are the two-part Remnant, or the first covering of the mercy seat; the tenth is the required second covering of incense that averts death.
In the last section we noted per the holy convocations that adding the tenth brings one back to Passover, which has the promise of escaping death for the firstborn. So per the church, what does the tenth bring? It brings Yahshua Himself, even as we read in 2 Samuel 6:2 - "the ark of God which is called by the Name, the very name of Yahweh of hosts who is enthroned between the cherubim."
It is quite revealing that Christianity has been content to keep the church within the confines of the cursed state of the 7. And it is the Bride alone that has come to see that to remain in that realm is to have an ark void of a mercy seat, and to continue being cursed and naked (2 Corinthians 5:1-3) without any covering. The Bride is the only work that has seen that there must be the addition of the eighth and the ninth, which is also the only way of adding the essential and concluding tenth! Without the eighth and the ninth, Yahshua cannot return!
Of course per the church and the Passover 1–7–1 pattern, the first Remnant has actually already been established, and the second Remnant is being formed at this time. Per the Tabernacles 7–1–1 testimony, these two works mean the establishment of the two-part mercy seat covering. In reality though, there has been a covering over Christianity all along. That covering has not been a clean covering though, for it has been the unsplit covering of Satan, “the anointed cherub who covers” (Ezekiel 28:14). Though Satan has been a critical covering who has kept the office of the twelfth apostle alive and active, as we see he has to be replaced by the two-part Remnant (The Raven, page 2).
This brings up a very interesting point that needs to be addressed. Here you will learn something very important regarding the ways of Yahweh. In 1 John 2:18 and 22, and 4:3, as well as 2 John 1:7, we read about the “antichrist.” Actually, this specific word gives a wrong impression, as though this is one who is “anti,” or “against,” Christ. This is not the case. The Greek word, “anti,” is more accurately translated – “in place of.” In fact, it is never used in the Scriptures to mean – against. For example, in Luke 11:11 we read – “Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he?” The Greek word “anti” is the statement in bold – “instead of.” Or in Matthew 2:22 we read – “But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea in place of his father Herod …,” once again the bold letters are the same Greek word per “antichrist.” Thus, it is only accurate to translate this – “in place of Christ.”
Why do we make this distinction? Because it is a very important and revealing distinction. One will never understand the “antichrist” unless they take an honest look at the word itself, and most certainly Christians have never understood who or what he is, or even how his place or office is even dealt with. Why? Because Christians do not know Yahweh nor His ways nor His government nor His plans. They are the cursed 7 and they never look beyond that. Like the harlot, they fail to see their own need to be correctly covered.
So who has served “in place of Christ” for the last 2,000 years? Primarily, there have been two. First, when Yahshua left this earth, He had to leave the church in the hands of another. So who would serve “in place of Christ” while He was gone? There was only one who had that right, and that was Satan. Yes, Satan is the “antichrist” who has served “in place of Christ” while He has been away. Christians have looked for some “beast” man to come out of Europe; but he never has, and he never will. Why? Because he has been here for 2,000 years.
The other one who has served “in place of Christ” has been none other than the body of Christ. Once again, while Christ has not been on the earth, He has placed His body here in Christianity, the body of Christ, to serve in His place. But as it was so designed, this has been the crucified and afflicted body of Christ, which has taken upon itself all that Yahshua’s natural body experienced at His trial and crucifixion (The Issue, page 3). And even as we read in Zechariah 11:15-17, their eye to see has been put out. They do not see or understand.
But here is the wonder and marvel and beauty of Yahweh, concerning which Christianity has had no idea. Yahweh’s work is not to destroy, but to restore and redeem. Thus, while the “in place of Christ” work has thus far been works of corruption, He will take that same place and redeem it for good. First, He replaces Satan in his office as the twelfth apostle. This He does so by returning it to a man, who also stands in the place of the ninth, which we have already seen is the place that belongs to Yahshua. However, as we have seen in this addendum, the ninth is still a man work, a Solomon; and it is not until the completion of this work that the tenth can be added, who is Yahshua Himself. Second, Yahweh will replace Satan in his role as “the anointed cherub who covers,” which He does so with the two-part Remnant, the eighth and the ninth.
Thus, the 7th, 8th, and 9th works are all “in place of Christ” works, revealing His redemption. They are Yahweh bringing Yahshua to this earth, but in men. This is certainly evidenced insomuch that Saul, David, and Solomon represent a complete probationary period of man. The seventh has been a cursed man work – Christianity. The eighth, or the first Remnant, has been a man work that has equally been cursed. And the ninth, both as a company and as a man who stands in His office, is a man work bringing redemption and deliverance.
We see then that the “in place of Christ” work through man is eventually redeemed so as to be used for good, and not for evil. Again, this is the way of Yahweh, something that Christians have known nothing about. The “antichrist” becomes a work for good! This is a cause for great hope and joy. The curse on that role will be reversed so as to redeem man. This is a very important truth regarding Yahweh and His ways.
Additionally, we know that the number wherein we are to calculate the mark of the beast is 616. That is, 6 + 1 = 7. And, as we have seen, 717 is actually the number wherein one adds the critical eighth, or 7 + 1 = 8. This would mean that 818 would speak of adding the fulfilling ninth, or 8 + 1 = 9. And finally, 919 would mean adding the new and higher level tenth, or 9 + 1 = 10. Now, you will notice that there is no number that allows an advancement to a higher number. There cannot be a 10110 (10-1-10). Again, 9 is the completion. This is the revealing pattern, just like the pattern of the ark of the covenant with the covering mercy seat and incense. It is a complete pattern, and any further or additional advancement is effected only by repeating the pattern. It is complete. Again though, it is a pattern that Christianity, to its ruin, has known nothing about; therefore, they have never gone any further than the mark of the beast 7, affording no hope for the return of the Son of God. That hope is by adding the two-part eighth and ninth place Bride!
Regarding Yahshua’s place as being the higher tenth, in John 1:35-39 we read the following. Two of John the Baptist’s disciples went to Him and asked Him a question.
“Rabbi, where are You staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.” So they came and saw where He was staying; and they stayed with Him that day, for it was about the tenth hour (John 1:35-39).
It is interesting that we see specifically the tenth hour associated with finding and staying with Yahshua. This is precisely the purpose of the seventh, the eighth, and the ninth – to get us to the place of the tenth where we can see and stay with Yahshua.
And before we close, there is another movie that has come out that brings up once again this matter of the kiss bringing someone out of death – Just Like Heaven. This raises the question as to why Yahweh designed putting lips together – kissing – so as to be so meaningful and stimulating. Think about it, Yahweh designs nothing in man that does not have a governmental/prophetic significance. Life is not just some meaningless expression void of effectual revelatory everlasting design. Everything about the body prophesies, both anatomically and the way we use it. So what could kissing prophetically represent?
Without getting complicated, lips are obviously related to words. The implication is that lips are words that bring forth transforming truth. And, as we see in these movies and fairytales, these words, the face to face bearing of truth, bring forth life. So where do we see this fulfilled? This is an important question if one’s quest is to defeat death.
It seems that the pattern is that the ninth kisses the eighth. In Hebrews 11:39-40 we read:
And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.
The ones who receive the promise, yet not the fulfillment, are the eighth. For example, the first Remnant, the eighth, received the promise, but they did not receive the fulfillment. What are they awaiting? Even as we read here in Hebrews 11, they await the fulfillment of the work of the second Remnant. In truth, like those in the movies and in fairytales, they await to be kissed by the second Remnant, so they too will come out of death and the two will be joined together as one. In like regard, there are many in the body of Christ today who equally await to be kissed, so they too can come out of their sleep, come out of the sleeping body of Christ.
This is the same message when Yahshua called Lazarus out of the tomb. In truth, Yahshua kissed him – speaking words that brought him forth out of death. This is what happens when Bride members come out of Christianity. They are called out of the cleft of the rock (Christianity) by words of life. And what did they say concerning Yahshua before He called forth Lazarus? “See how He loved him!” So, in this case Yahshua was in the place of the ninth, and Lazarus in the eighth. In like regard, when you read these truths that you are reading right now and come out of Christianity, this man is in the place of the ninth, and you in the place of a Lazarus eighth.
As the ninth-born from the barren, Yahshua came to earth, took the place as a Nazirite, and restored the garden of God. Therefore, it was the ninth who restored the garden, a promise thereby that belongs to the ninth. However, since Yahshua was early and that which He performed had to die, even as the first Remnant and the twelve apostles had to die, the promise of the restored garden per the ninth must now resurrect. And of necessity, this resurrection must and will be fulfilled per the concluding ninth, but in a man. As we have noted, it is the “in place of Christ” man work, a work that Yahshua began and thereby guaranteed the fulfillment thereof.
This is attested in the movie, Just Like Heaven. David, who kisses Elizabeth (whose name means “God of the seven” or “God of the oath”; and as the one kissed, is in the place of the eighth), brings her out of her sleep and death, and builds a garden on her roof. He enters into her apartment by a key under the fire extinguisher, the critical “key of David” that gets him into the house of the eighth. But, when Elizabeth returns home and opens her door, we see quite clearly that she lives in the ninth, #9. Thus, David builds for Elizabeth, who came out of death by a kiss, a garden on the roof of the ninth. The garden that Yahshua as the ninth secured the rights thereof as a Nazirite, equally had to go into death and will be restored by the one who, as a man “in place of Christ,” is added as the fulfilling ninth.
And might we note here as well, even as the key that was used to enter into #9 and thereby build the garden was hidden, so the “key of David,” or the necessity of adding the eighth, has been hidden. For 2,000 years, no one has known the necessity of coming out of the 7, out of Christianity. Now that we know this vital key, we have the hope and the promise of the fulfilling ninth, as well as the tenth!
For some reason I never forgot an insult that a crude boy in grade school leveled against me. I have never told anyone in my life about this until now. He took my initials, GDN, and told me that it meant “God d_ Nazis.” I think you can figure out what he said. Today, knowing the ways of Yahweh that He reverses the curse and performs works of redemption, I trust that those initials represent that which Kyle has said – that GDN is the abbreviation for “garden.” I sincerely hope this is the case, not for my sake, but for the sake of the kingdom, for the sake of man, not only today but for all men, and for the sake of the fulfilling Bride, the ninth. Yahweh needs to restore and fulfill His garden that Yahshua made possible 2,000 years ago. May Yahweh’s word and His ways be fulfilled in our midst today.
In conclusion, it is most interesting how Yahweh takes each one of us personally through these four “steps,” or places – the 7, 8, 9, and 10 – in order to fulfill His will and order in our lives in establishing His church. That which is His way corporately, He individually fulfills in us as well.
For example, I was once a Christian, making me a 7. However, Yahshua, as the ninth, kissed me (with His word of truth) and brought me out of sleeping/dead Christianity 7 and made me alive as an 8. This was completely legal, for in truth I am a part of the first Remnant, the 8, occupying the office of the twelfth apostle. But with ever-increasing truth, He anointed me into Yahshua’s place as the 9. Is that the end? No! By entering into the place of the ninth, I enter into the place of the One who, standing in that place before me, gained the legal rights to ascend alive – the scarlet thread. Thus, having gained that right, at the first resurrection I too will enter into an immortal incorruptible body, entering into the place of the 10 – the new level that is not the old flesh man level that has been the only thing possible for 6,000 years. Through this process I simply walk through that which Yahshua has prepared by going before me.
So how about others? If you remain a Christian, that will be as far as you can go for now, for it is critical that you pass through the 8 and the 9. I am in the place of the ninth, and when you read these truths that Yahshua imparted to me through His Spirit, I kiss you as well who are in the 7, and you too come into the place of the 8, the first Remnant legally affording you this opportunity. But do you remain there? No! The second Remnant is not the eighth, but the ninth. Thus you too enter into the place of the ninth, the place of Yahshua, likewise legally securing the right to ascend alive, and will enter into the place of the 10 at the first resurrection.
Do you now see why it is so vital for one to come out of Christianity and enter into the second Remnant? You in fact go through the identical pattern of Yahshua Himself, following in His way. He was in a natural body; you are in a natural body. His body was afflicted and died; you entered into the body of Christ that is afflicted and died, the 7. He came out of the grave with the keys of the kingdom; you come out of Christianity with the key of David – adding the eighth. He ascended alive, even as the second bird in Leviticus 14 did so; you gain the rights to ascend alive as the second Remnant, the ninth. He received an immortal body and returned to this earth; we ascend alive at the first resurrection, entering into the higher level 10, and return with Him to set up His kingdom on this earth and reign as kings of the King.
Such are Yahweh’s ways which He has revealed to His Bride. We rejoice and are glad!
