Chapter 5: The Two Deeds
Date: April 6th 2001

elcome, and here we are at the Feast of Unleavened Bread 2001, sponsored by the Creation Seventh Day Adventist Church. It is the 7th day Sabbath, April 6th, 2001. Our Feast theme is "Holiness to Yah." Today we have with us a guest, brother David Aguilar from Belize, currently residing in the Tampa, Florida area; and he will be assisting me as we go through this study on Church Membership part 5.

We have been noticing something in this series from week to week, since we started with part 1. I thought it was going to be one part, and then we said, "Well, we'll have to have two parts." This thing has gone this way each week: "We're going to have to have another part." Well, I'm pleased to announce that part 5 will not be sufficient, we'll have to have part 6, and I would not be surprised to have part 7... and who knows how many more?

Church membership turns out to be a most important subject – much more important than I ever guessed. And I am pleased that Yah has been very, very gracious to bless us with the light that we need to have from His Word. Let's review just a little bit about last week's study. Here are some high points that I remember (I went over my notes a little bit to see if there was something that would be valuable to you): We first looked at Jeremiah's buying of a relative's field, and its application of him being a type of Christ, who bought back planet earth with His precious blood.

You'll recall we read that the witnesses were called to sign the deed of purchase, and that these deeds were stored in earthen vessels. Actually those two deeds – there was a Sealed Deed and an Open Deed – they were stored in an earthen vessel so that those deeds may last a long time. Well, that's a parallel to the eternal possession, or the eternal inheritance, of planet earth.

And then thirdly, we paralleled all of this with the Christian who receives the Holy Spirit as an earnest, or a down payment, on the eternal inheritance. By receiving the Holy Spirit we are given power to become witnesses for Yah, witnesses that He IS the Almighty One. You see, on planet earth there is a question: "Who is the Almighty One?" Lucifer is vying for first place, and he has won first place in the hearts of most people. But we are to be Yah's witnesses, having the power to testify that Yah is the Almighty One.

Fourthly, the conclusion of the matter was that the 144,000 sign the property deed for planet earth as witnesses to the sealing of the deeds by Yahshua Himself at the Cross. What are we called to sign? We are to sign two deeds, and this week we shall continue in this quest for truth.

We also re-emphasized that Christ is the promised Seed of Abraham, and rightful Heir to the promised inheritance, all Israel being joint heirs with Christ. And then we also discussed further the fact that the 144,000 are the firstfruits to Yah and to the Lamb, and they are the faithful witnesses. I think also, Brother David, you were not with us last week – but you gleaned something {from the audio recording} that you wanted to share from that.

David: Well, yes. We were talking about the tribes receiving the inheritance by their number. And so, well we're all familiar with Isaiah 53, the "Suffering Servant" passage, and in the last verse of that chapter, it says, speaking of Christ (and we see it fulfilled in the New Testament): "Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong; because He hath poured out His soul unto death: and He was numbered with the transgressors; and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." (Isa 53:12) So we see that Christ was "numbered with the transgressors," and therefore He received their inheritance. One who was not supposed to die... died, because He received the "inheritance" of the earth.

And then in Mark 15:28, "And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, 'And He was numbered with the transgressors.'" This was done both literally, because He was put between the two thieves who were also crucified with Him, and also figuratively, that He died the sinner's death that we might live forever.

Pastor "Chick": So, all who receive an inheritance are numbered, and numbered by name. You noticed, in the reading we just had in Sabbath school, that the word "Yahshua" was very powerful; you see... it's the Word of Yah. Yahshua is the Word of Yah, and you remember we read the inscription, or title over the head of the crucified One: Yahshua, the King of the Jews.

Now, this week we're going to study several things. First of all we want to ask the question, "What is the deed to which we must witness?" And No. 2, "Why are there two deeds in Jeremiah 32:11 and 14? What are these two deeds in Jeremiah 32:11 and 14?"

Let's turn there to Jeremiah 32 to refresh our memories. Jeremiah 32, verse 11 first. This is the King James Version: "So I took the evidence of the purchase," that's the deed of purchase, but I like the King James wording: evidence of the purchase. "...both that which was sealed according to the law and custom," and we said according to the law and custom means terms and conditions, "...and that which was open." Jump over to verse 14: "Thus saith Yah of hosts, the Almighty One of Israel; 'Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.'"

Okay, on the board you will see that I have written the heading Deeds of Purchase or Evidence of Purchase. Under this heading I have written: No. 1 – "Sealed Deed," or "Sealed Evidence," then No. 2 – "Open Deed," or "Open Evidence." Now this is very thrilling to me, because the other night Yah woke me up about 3 in the morning and said, "Study," because I didn't know what these deeds were; and when I picked brother David up from the bus station we had a little conversation about this, and he said, "You know, I wondered why you didn't mention what those deeds were." And I said, "Well that's simple – I didn't know!"

Well, I needed to know, and you needed to know, and we all need to know. And Yah finally told me. It's very easy, and it's very beautiful. The word "Seal" in the original language means, "Make an end." Make an end. The word "Open" means "lay bare or naked." Lay bare or naked. Now this is very significant. Let's look at what the Scripture says about "make an end." Turn to Daniel 9:24. "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."

What a powerful prophecy. The 70 weeks of Daniel. What is this talking about? What is it obviously talking about? It's a prophecy of the coming of Messiah. It's a prophecy of the coming of Christ, for He was the One that would finish the transgression, make an end of sins – make a reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness. Now look at this: "seal up the vision and prophecy." Yahshua Himself, His Word – "Yahshua" – is the Sealed Deed. Yah-Is-Salvation. The Sealed Deed, the Word of Yah.

Okay, that's very simple, we need not even look up any more Scriptures for the Sealed Evidence. But let's look at the Open Evidence. The Sealed Evidence is final. What did He say on the Cross? "It is finished." Sealed – the inheritance has been purchased. Now it must be put in earthen vessels, but there's also an open deed, an open evidence, that must be placed in earthen vessels. Jeremiah... well first, now... first Leviticus. Leviticus 18:6. This is related to laying bare or naked. Laying bare or naked has to do with the Open Deed.

Now you're going to have to put on your spiritual eyeglasses, and you're going to have to open up your brain, and use a little of that gray matter Yah gave you as a gift. Leviticus 18:6, let's turn there: "None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am Yah." Now this is a prohibition against, in the letter of this law is the prohibition against literally uncovering the nakedness of a near relative. Could we say the law against incest? But put on your spiritual eyeglasses, now.

This applies to us not only in letter, but also in spirit. And in spirit it has to do with opening up a brother or sister in such a way that the shame of their nakedness would show to others – it's similar to, let's say if a man had his pants inadvertently left open, unzipped. It's an embarrassing thing, isn't it? We would not yell out, "Hey, zip up your pants!" No, we would go to that brother and we would whisper, you know, "Uh... you need to zip up." We don't want to bring the notice of someone's embarrassment to light to the whole congregation needlessly. So, if a person is guilty of some inadvertent sin, we don't try to bring that sin out in the open to embarrass them.

Now Yahshua suffered that, and as brother David shared with us, He suffered that right there at the cross – the humiliation of the sin and embarrassment of every sinner. That need not be done again, He did it for us. So we try to guard our brethren from humiliation and embarrassment, and that's precisely why the Savior gave us the steps of Gospel order. {see Matthew 18:15-18} He said, if you have a matter with your brother go to him privately and share with him the thing you have on your mind. Now if he will not hear you, He says, take two or three witnesses; take some witnesses, that every fact might be established. And then you take those witnesses, and you share with him again. Now, you don't get biased witnesses. You don't go and say, "Hey, be on my side, and let's go whip up on this fellow." That's not the idea at all. The idea is just to have some witnesses there; so you take some witnesses that they may establish the facts and help mediate the situation.

And then, if you go the second step of Gospel order and it still doesn't work, then you bring it before the whole congregation, so that the thing will be known – there will be a Church court to settle the matter. And of course, at that point there will be some humiliation suffered, because the rebellion will be displayed before all to see, as we saw in the War in Heaven {1}. We don't want the thing to come before the whole congregation, because that's when war occurs. We want it settled before it has to come before the congregation.

Let's move on now, we're going to eventually get to what that evidence of purchase is that is open. By the way, let me say, and it may come further in this study, we do want to be open one with another. We don't want to be covered; we want to be open with each other. But we don't want to display a man's faults, or a woman's faults, or even a young person's faults, needlessly. Okay, let's go forward. The next Scripture is Jeremiah 49.

Jeremiah 49:10. Yah is talking here, He said, "But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is spoiled [or ruined], and his brethren, and his neighbours, and he is not." Who is it that can lay us bare? Who is it that can lay us open and know all about us? Are we willing to be naked before Yah? Are we willing to be open before Yah? That's the question; it's needless for us to hide, for all things are open in His mind, He sees it.

Let's go to Hebrews 4:12-15: "For the word of Yah is quick [that is, living], and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder [or the division] of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner [or able judge] of the thoughts and intents of the heart." The Word of Yah, Yahshua, is that powerful. "Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Yahshua the Son of Yah, let us hold fast [or firmly] our profession." Now this profession is very important – we may be coming back to that. "For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."

"Let us therefore come boldly [verse 16] unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Further unfolding this, this idea of being laid bare and naked, or being opened, let's go to Genesis 2:25. We're going to go back to Creation. We're Creation Seventh Day Adventists, and we must go back to Creation and reference things there. Genesis 2:25, speaking of the couple, Adam and Eve, it says: "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed."

Now if somebody came strutting in here naked today, somebody would be ashamed. Now, there may be some that could strut in here and not be ashamed themselves, but I think all of us would be ashamed. Somebody would be ashamed. But Adam and Eve were created in such an innocent, sinless manner, a state – a sinless state, they were not ashamed to be naked. They were veiled in a garment of light; and that garment of light was the righteousness of Christ. The righteousness of Christ. They were clothed in the wedding garment. They were married by Yah and Yahshua personally, right there. And they put on the wedding garment, and had no need to hide anything. They were open. Open to each other and open to the Father and the Son, and all the heavenly universe.

Open, nothing to hide. This is very significant. This was the sinless state of Adam and Eve. And do you know that the 144,000 faithful witnesses will be returned to that state as firstfruits? This is proof that Yah is the Almighty One. He can take earthen vessels... He can take sinners, and make them into saints. He can make them naked, and they won't be ashamed. Genesis 3:7. It says of the two now, it says: "And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons [coverings]." They made themselves coverings. Did Yah instruct them to do that? Yah did not instruct them to do that; they did it on their own.

They would have never needed those coverings had they obeyed the instruction. Had they remained faithful to Yah, they would have remained naked and never been ashamed. But because they transgressed, they went against the instruction of Yah, they saw themselves as being naked, and they had something to hide. They had to go into darkness; they could not stay in the light. Have you ever heard this expression, "Let's bring it to light?" That means, let's bring it open, let's bring it out into the open. The children of Yah do not keep things in darkness. There's a Scripture that says somewhere that they bring them to light.

Nothing is done in secret; it's all done in the light. We have no secrets.

Now husbands and wives do not reveal to the congregation their private encounters, just as the Father and Son went into council and none of the angels were allowed there. There is an appropriate place for privacy, because the husband and wife symbolize the relationship of the Father and Son in authority and purpose. But it says here that Adam and Eve, now sinners, had a need to cover themselves, and they took it upon themselves to do this. Let me tell you this, don't you cover yourself. If you are tempted to cover yourself...

Let's say you do something that might be wrong inadvertently. We don't do willful wrong; we are converted, we are born again. But if you should do something inadvertently that's wrong, don't go hide, and don't start covering yourself, making excuses. That's fig leaves. As my brother has so aptly said, it is taking something that represents life, but is really dead, and making it into an unsuitable covering. A false garment. A false righteousness – a self-righteousness. It is self-righteousness. Justifying self, that's self-righteousness. So if we do inadvertently do something wrong, what shall we do? Bring it to light – because the light burns it away!

Bring it to the fire of Yah. The Father will just burn it up, and it'll be gone, you see. That's how we learn, that's how we grow. That's one of the ways that we grow.

The two that were covering themselves were avoiding judgment. They were avoiding examination. We're in the antitypical Day of Atonement. We're in the day when we need to be examining ourselves. We need to be opening up so that others might be able to help us notice if there's any dirt on our faces. We certainly don't want to go into the throne room with dirt on our faces. Yah warns us that we must always have the garment of salvation. The garment of salvation is being naked before Yah. The righteousness of Christ is always being naked, or open to correction and instruction in righteousness.

Now, if someone comes to you to oppress you, if someone comes to control your mind, you will have spiritual discernment on how to take care of that. You don't have to be oppressed. They wanted to kill Yahshua way before the crucifixion, you remember? They plotted to kill Him, and they would have killed Him in private if they could have. But He didn't stand for it. He disappeared out of their sight. It wasn't His time, and if someone is trying to lord it over you, it's not your time. We have our time coming when we will be persecuted before the whole world. And we will be laid bare and laid naked, and they will try to humiliate us. But you know, by that time we will be so used to being naked and open that we will sing hymns of praise. Just like in the days of the Reformers when they were being burned at the stake, they sung hymns of praise. Hallelu-Yah.

Let's turn to Job 1:21. Job said, "Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: Yah gave, and Yah hath taken away; blessed be the name of Yah." You know why Job succeeded in his trial? Job understood the principle of nakedness. He was absolutely naked before Yah, and he saw that he was naked when he came into the world, and he would be naked when he goes out of the world, and there's no sense in trying to do anything else in between. They kept the Sabbath at creation, they keep the Sabbath in the New Earth; there's no sense in keeping any other day. Continuity, consistency. See, the Sabbath will even illustrate it to us.

Ecclesiastes 5:13-15: "There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt. But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand. As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand."

Are you naked with your financial treasures? Are they open to Yah? What are you saving it for? What are you protecting it for? Are you afraid you're going to have a dark, rainy day, when you need these treasures? Naked you came into the world; naked you go out of the world; whether you go by the grave or whether you go by translation. You're going to go naked. Why would you take dollar bills and make a covering with them, to protect yourself with gold and silver? You were not purchased with gold and silver, but by the precious blood of the Lamb. Now why would you not be willing to return your treasure to the Son of Yah? Vanity. Vanity in protecting yourself with silver and gold; a sore evil, a futile work. {see also Malachi 3:8-12 & Haggai 1:1-10}

Let's go to 2Corinthians 4. We're going to start at verse 18 and go through chapter 5 and verse 5: "... we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal [or temporary]; but the things which are not seen are eternal." Are you looking at the things that are eternal? Are you looking at the things that are not seen? If you're looking at eternal things, you're looking at Yahshua. Chapter 5 verse 1: "For we know that if our earthly house [that's that earthen vessel] of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of Yah, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now He that hath wrought [or prepared] us for the selfsame thing is Yah, who also hath given unto us the earnest [or down payment] of the Spirit."

Christ secured the eternal inheritance. He secured that heavenly house. He secured the property. He, His Word, is the Sealed Deed. What is the Open Deed? What is the Open Evidence? We have the earnest of the Spirit; we have the Sealed Deed in these earthen vessels. What are we missing? You know, here's the good news of the Gospel: everybody that's born into this world has the Sealed Deed in his or her vessel. Yahshua's already died for every man. {see Hebrews 2:9} The only thing they're missing is the Open Evidence. The only thing they're missing is the Open Deed. We need it. They need it. What is it?

Let's go to Revelation 3:18. As Seventh Day Adventists we are very familiar with this Scripture. It is the cure for the Laodicean condition of being lukewarm. In Revelation 3:18 Yahshua says, "I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, [remember that, gold tried in the fire] that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment [or clothing], that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;" You know, I understand this in a way that I never understood it before. It's okay to be naked, it's good to be naked. When you're clothed with white raiment, you're really naked to Yah.

Don't let the shame of your nakedness appear – in other words don't try to hide something. The General Conference Seventh-day Adventist church, for example, is claiming to be clothed in the righteousness of Christ. They do all of these abominations they do, and try to hide the persecutions they are performing under the guise of the righteousness of Christ. The shame of their nakedness is appearing, and we are called to strip off those leaves that they've sewn together to cover themselves so that the shame of their nakedness will appear, and perhaps they will desire to be clothed. Now, we are not to strip off the clothing of our brothers and sisters in the faith; but those that are following after demons may have to be unclothed so that they can see their shame. {From another angle, Leviticus 18:6 says we are not to strip off true clothing, but fig leaves are a false garment.} We do this in a gentle fashion. We ask them, "What are you doing with those fig leaves on you? I see fig leaves on you. What are you doing? What have you done? Are you naked? Are you ashamed?"

Yahshua says we can be clothed in white raiment, in the righteous wedding garment, and then our nakedness will not be shame. We can be open, and not be ashamed, when we have nothing to hide. And then He says, concluding Revelation 3:18, "anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see." We see the discernment of the Holy Spirit. Now, there are two eyes in the body of Christ. He is the Head and there are two eyes in the Body. They are called the "two witnesses." Have you ever heard of prophets being called "seers?" {1Samuel 9:9} They "see" for you, they're your eyes. In the Body of Christ you will have seers. In the last movement, there are two eyes that see what's coming, and will help to warn you through the way. {Revelation 11:3} The discernment of the Holy Spirit, the gift of prophecy, must be alive in the Body of Christ, or it is a counterfeit body.

Buy these things, Yahshua says. Don't waste your efforts, time, talents, money, whatever it is, on anything else. You will be disappointed if you do. Let's go further now. Let's go to Revelation 16:15 – time is just getting away from us here, I may have to speed it up a little bit. "Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame." What does it mean to keep your garments? Keep the faith; do not step outside of the light. Stay in the light; keep your wedding garment on. If you do something wrong, don't run and hide. Keep your garments. "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in the Messiah," Romans 8:1. If somebody criticizes you, don't be condemned. If somebody says something cruel to you, like, "Oh, you're lousy at this," or, "I don't like the way you do that," don't worry about it. It bounces off of Yah. It has to come through Yahshua to get to you in the first place. Don't be condemned; keep your garment on, and they won't see the shame of your nakedness.

Be strong and of good courage, for Yahshua is the King of the Jews. Oh, what a promise! When you're in a trial, when you're in a struggle, scream it: "Yahshua is the King of the Jews!" The victory will settle upon your shoulders, and you will see yourself like a little lamb, held and borne upon the High Priest in the Heavenly Sanctuary. What courage, what encouragement, we have.

Now let's turn to Exodus 32, and we have quite a long read here, the whole chapter. I'm going to have to go through this fairly quickly. We're coming upon an hour, and we have about 30 minutes to go. I notice nobody's sleeping today. In Exodus 32, Moses is the type of Christ; and there is a parallel to the S.D.A. church here, and really, any church that has followed in the path of the Papacy. There will be an application here to Church Membership.

"And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, 'Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.' And Aaron said unto them, 'Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.' And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, [graving tool, here's a TradeMark about to happen] after he had made it a molten calf [molten calf is a church/state union like the General Conference Corporation]: and they said, 'These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.'" Oh, fame and fortune. Fame and glory, great riches. Seeking after these things has been the downfall of many a church. They lose their connection to Yah, and in return they may be accepted by every government of the earth. "'These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.' And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, 'To morrow is a feast to Yah.'"

There's the "Sabbath." There's the perverted Sabbath, the Sabbath of man – proclaimed, not by the Almighty, but by human authority. It may be Sunday, or it may be that which is now kept by the General Conference Seventh-day Adventist church: a feast to Ba'al. There is no Sabbath rest for those who persecute the saints of Yah; there is no rest for those who do not keep the commandments of Yah. {see Hebrews 4:9,10 & Psalm 112:1}

"And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play." And we could go into all the abominations that worldly churches are doing. "And Yah said unto Moses, 'Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves.'" First of all we have to understand that these are our people that have corrupted themselves. "'They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, [or union with the world] and have worshipped it, [given it all the power] and have sacrificed thereunto [given it all their land, tithes, offerings, talents, efforts], and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.' And Yah said unto Moses, 'I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiff-necked people: Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax [become] hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.'"

"And Moses besought Yah his Almighty One, and said, 'Yah, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?'" Oh, the Reformation movement was mighty, and the Seventh-day Adventist church was a mighty fortress, as it came from the hand of Yah out of the land of Egypt. "'Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, [the Seed is Christ] and they shall inherit it for ever.'" There's the promise of the land.

"And Yah repented of the evil which He thought to do unto his people. And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written. And the tables were the work of Yah, and the writing was the writing of Yah, graven upon the tables [there's His seal]. And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, 'There is a noise of war in the camp.' And he said, 'It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.'"

Singing. The denominations are singing a song; they're singing a song of, "True Church, we're the true Church; we're the Israel of God!" And those who reject both false denominationalism and the Biblical concept of a true, organized Church Body (falling into the ditch on the other side of the road: nondenominatinalism, which says that everbody's got a valid set of beliefs, but nobody is right), they're singing a song that is just as confused. Babylon. They're singing a song, but remember the 144,000 sing a new song; they sing a new and different song. They are the deliverers of Israel.

Verse 19: "And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: [there's the celebration movement, the charismatic movement] and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount." Symbol of a broken covenant. Churches that reject the Ten Commandments have broken the covenant. Churches that have ceased to reform have broken the covenant. Churches that enter into unions with worldly governments (e.g., the General Conference Seventh-day Adventist church, the ancient Jewish church, the Roman Catholic church) have broken the covenenant; they are no longer Church members. They did not put the Open Deed in the earthen vessel, that it may last a long time. And we'll look at that in more detail near the end. "And [Moses] took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire..." Remember in Revelation 3:17 where Yahshua said, "Buy of me gold tried in the fire?" Listen: and he took the calf "and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it." He made the children of Israel drink it.

Revelation 14:8 through 10. Turn (hold your finger where we are in Exodus) and go over to Revelation 14:8-20, "And there followed another angel, saying, 'Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations [families] drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication [immorality with the golden calf, with Ba'al].' And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, 'If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of the Almighty One, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.'" They will have to drink the dust mixed with water, of their Corporation, of their church/state union, of their rebellion for the things of this world, when it's ground up into powder.

Going back to Exodus 32:21 – "And Moses said unto Aaron, 'What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?' And Aaron said, 'Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief. For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.'" Has Yahshua not tarried? Hasn't the coming of Yahshua been delayed? Did the churches not say, "Oh, He delayeth His coming. I guess He's not coming, so we may just as well build a big building. We might just as well make an empire, and dance and party and have a good time, because He's not coming down from the mountain. He's not coming down from Heaven to take us home yet. We don't know what happened to Him, so maybe He's not as powerful as we thought. We have to make other gods to help us through." They lost the victory. They lost the Gospel. Instead of Christ being their master, they made this world their master. Moses is a type of Christ here.

Verse 24: "'And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. [if you have any faith, you better take care of it] So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.'" The calf was their gold tried in the fire. It's a false faith. It's a false evidence. It's a false deed to planet earth.

In Adventism, the trademarked name "Seventh-day Adventist" is a false seal that they're trying to put upon the Open Deed. But do you know the name that will be put upon the Open Deed when it is sealed? "Creation Seventh Day Adventist." That will be the name that is placed upon the Open Deed when it is sealed at the close of probation. Verse 25: "And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies: ) Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, 'Who is on Yah's side? Let him come unto me.'" That's our message, brothers and sisters: "Who is on Yah's side, let them come unto me." "And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him."

"And he said unto them, 'Thus saith Yah the Almighty One of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.'" There's Ezekiel 9 being described. "And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men." Did you ever hear that phrase "three thousand" before? We heard it at the day of Pentecost, when there was added to the Church three thousand. {Acts 2:41} At the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, at the Latter Rain, there is to be added to the Church three thousand. Continuing in Exodus 32, verse 29: "For Moses had said, 'Consecrate yourselves to day to Yah, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.' And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, 'Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto Yah; peradventure [perhaps] I shall make an atonement for your sin.'"

Yahshua is saying to the members of the fallen churches, "I will renew the covenant with you. I will renew the covenant with you by the Holy Spirit, through the Seal – through the Creation Seventh Day Adventist name. I will bring you a chance to make the covenant right."

"And Moses returned unto Yah, and said, 'Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.' And Yah said unto Moses, 'Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee...'" Spiritually speaking, which angel is that? The 4th angel of Revelation 18. The mighty angel of Revelation 18 is to go before us to prepare the way of the renewed covenant. "...nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.' And Yah plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made."

If they don't repent, their sin will be visited on them. Do you not love our people enough to show them? They must come out of the fallen bodies, join with Yah's people, and sign the Open Deed of Church Membership. They must seal the covenant with their commitment to Yah and to His Son, to the commandments of Yah and the faith of Yahshua. They must renew the covenant. They must be rebaptized and reconverted, so that the commandments may be written on them, and they will be sealed and fitted for translation.

And now we turn over to Matthew 21: 43 and 44. Yahshua's talking: "Therefore say I unto you, 'The kingdom of Yah shall be taken from you, and given to a nation [family] bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this Stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.'"

Remember, the golden calf was ground to powder. The Stone, representing Christ, our Rock, the stone was cut out of... let's look at it in Daniel 2:44 – "And in the days of these kings..." talking about the image, the large image with ten toes, toes mixed with iron and clay. "And in the days of these kings shall the Almighty One of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed [it's going to last for a long time. Secured in earthen vessels it's going to last for a long time]: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people [this time], but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever."

The eternal inheritance will finally be placed upon the rightful heirs. Verse 45: "Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands..." Remember, Moses was up on the mount, and he brought the Ten Commandments written in stone. Well here's a stone cut out of mount Zion by the very hands of Yah, and that law is written in stone – these are people that are sealed, and ready for Heaven. They are the 144,000. That's who the stone is. "Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great Almighty One hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure."

Organizations that are not faithful to the Gospel will be destroyed when the Stone sets up the everlasting kingdom. Church/state unions such as the General Conference Corporation are types of the New World Order, and all of these will be ground to powder by the 144,000, that Stone coming out of mount Zion. Hallelu-Yah. Deuteronomy 28:24: "Yah shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed." The General Conference Seventh-day Adventistฎ church is looking for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, but it will be nothing but dust raining upon them, a dry and barren land. Most churches are not even looking for this outpouring. But Yahshua says, "You that are thirsty, come and drink freely. There is victory before you. Accept the rain that's coming from Heaven; accept the Latter Rain." Brothers and sisters, we are in the Latter Rain – we are receiving the Latter Rain, the power from Heaven. The great, mighty angel of Revelation 18 is upon us. Let us not deflect that refreshing.

There will be no outpouring of the Latter Rain on the various denominations of this planet. Only Israel by its tribes – only the family of Yah – receives the Latter Rain. Isaiah 49:1 through 10:

"Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; Yah hath called me from the womb..." Here's our calling, now, here's our calling. "Yah hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath He made mention of my name." Remember, we're numbered by name. "And He hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand hath He hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in His quiver hath He hid me; And said unto me, 'Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.' Then I said, 'I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with Yah, and my work with my Almighty One.'" Before we came to Yah we thought that our work was totally in vain, or we see that everything before that was in vain.

"'And now,' saith Yah that formed me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob again to Him [to bring in those scattered family members], Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of Yah, and my Almighty One shall be my strength. And He said, 'It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore [or bring back] the preserved of Israel [to preserve them as Open Deeds]: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.' [this is to go to the whole world] Thus saith Yah, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, 'To Him whom man despiseth, to Him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of Yah that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and He shall choose thee.'"

"Thus saith Yah, 'In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth [or to preserve the earth], to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves.'" Don't try to cover yourselves. Show yourselves, open yourselves. "They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places." Where are the high places? In heaven; that's where they shall feed – on heavenly things. "They shall not hunger nor thirst." Even though the powder be falling all around, they will take part in the Latter Rain. "They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for He that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall He guide them.'"

Oh, so much spiritual symbolism here, so much spiritual symbolism. Let's finish this now. This is the calling of the 144,000, who shall gather Israel into their Tribes. Revelation 7. Before we go any further, let me reveal to you that the Open Deed, that the Open Evidence, is the evidence of our faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Our word, our testimony, is the evidence. Yes, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) The Open Deed is not sealed yet, until the close of probation, because there will be those that could fall away. It's open; it's not sealed yet. Yahshua is sealed; we are still open until the sealing at the close of probation. So Yahshua's word, and Yahshua, makes up the Sealed Deed. We, and our word of commitment by the earnest of the Spirit {Ephesians 4:30}, which is seen in our Church Membership roll, is the Open Deed, which cannot be closed until the close of probation.

Now, reading Revelation 7, chapter 7 to close:

"And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind [or winds of strife] should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Almighty One: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, 'Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our Almighty One in their foreheads.'" Until the sealing work is finished. Until all the Tribes have put their names on the Church roll. "And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel."

Then it goes through the tribes, and names all the tribes. Twelve thousand from each tribe, and then in verse 9 – "After this..." Oh, by the way, remember, 12,000 in each tribe means each tribe gets equal inheritance. No tribe gets more than the other. Verse 9: "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number [no man could number, but Yah could number], of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes [of righteousness], and palms [of victory] in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, 'Salvation to our Almighty One which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.' And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, 'Amen [or so be it]: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our Almighty One for ever and ever. Amen [so be it].'"

"And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, 'What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?' And I said unto him, 'Sir, thou knowest.' And he said to me, 'These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of the Almighty, and serve Him day and night in His temple: and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and Yah shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.'"

Hallelu-Yah, Yah-shua.

At the great White Throne judgment, those that have tried to shield themselves with the leaves of self-righteousness will be laid bare – at the great White Throne, you see. All their deeds will be laid open in front of the universe, because they would not allow them to be opened up to Yah to be burned up by His fire of love. If you hold on to sin, it will be consumed in the fire of destruction, after the great White Throne Judgment. You cannot hide from Yah – why not open up?

Sinner, if you're hearing me, Yah loves you. He says, "Be open, come to me, I'm your Daddy. Run to me, I will give you a garment of salvation. I will put a wedding garment on you, so that your sin will not show to people, and you will not have to be ashamed. I will save you." Yah is salvation, and the Church Membership is important. Our Baptismal vow records the Sealed Deed of Yahshua. Our Church Membership records the Open Deed of our commitment to the Father and Son, which is to be Sealed at the close of probation, and will be your tribe name as you go through the gates of the city.

Yes, this study will continue into part 6 at our next meeting. May Yah bless you as we pray.

Our Father, which art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Thank you, Father, that we have our daily bread from your Word. Thank you that the bread of Heaven came down and fed us. Thank you that the water of life gave us drink. Thank you that our bread and water are sure. Dismiss us with your love we pray, in Yahshua's holy and precious name. Hallelu-Yah. Hallelu-Yahshua. Amen.
