The context and time setting of Zechariah 2:4 is very much the end of days. The text says this:
“and said to him, “Run, say to that young man, ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as villages without walls, because of the multitude of people and livestock in it.” Zechariah 2:4
The city is JerUSAlem. America The End Time Capital of the biblical nation called Israel.
Chapters 1 through 4 of Micah has brought us to this subject of “The Siege”. If you have not read my articles going through chapters 1 through 4, please do so, for you’ll need that groundwork to see what is going on at this very moment, as end time prophecy is being fulfilled before our very eyes right now. Let’s pick apart verse 1 from chapter 5.
1 “Now muster yourselves in troops, daughter of troops;
They have laid siege against us;
With a rod they will smite the judge of Israel on the cheek.” Micah 5:1
The Greek text from The LXX says it like this:
“Now shall the daughter of Sion be completely obstructed by obstruction. He ordered conflict for us. They shall strike with the rod, upon the jaw of the tribes of Israel.” Micah 5:1, LXX
The Hebrew text (the first one) simply does not convey the context of the truth. This is the case many times, as The Masoretic Jews have done a vast dis-service to The Word of YHWH. Christ read and quoted from The LXX of The Old Testament, which are The Greek scriptures, so I too compare the LXX with every text in question to see if there is another understanding being conveyed. Often times that is the case.
In the first sentence, we find the Hebrew text conveys, The Daughter of Zion assembling themselves in battle array for a fearless attack of some sort, against an enemy laying siege to our nation.
However, in the LXX we find the aspect of fear, dread and terror added to the situation. Notice the word translated “Obsructed”, repeated via the word translated “Obstruction”. This word is defined as:
From a primary phebomai (to be put in fear); alarm or fright — be afraid, + exceedingly, fear, terror. Bible Hub Greek Interlinear
In other words, be in fear o’ Daughter of Zion (America), because of fear…The Fear of catching a disease that really doesn’t exist.
The word translated “conflict” in The LXX is defined as follows:
From sun and echo; to hold together, i.e. To compress (the ears, with a Strike with a rod”) or arrest (a prisoner); figuratively, to compel, perplex, afflict, preoccupy — constrain, hold, keep in, press, lie sick of, stop, be in a strait, straiten, be taken with, throng. Bible Hub Greek Interlinear
So, the now we add this understanding to our text, which now can be understood as:
Be in fear o’ Daughter of Zion because of fear and be appointed to lie sick, compressed together in your dwellings, in house arrest, as a prisoner, in total constraint.
And lets add one more word to our understanding…..And this one is the shocker. That word is translated “Strike with the rod”
Strike with a rod is defined as: the one time sting of a scorpion.
If you haven’t already said, “Wow”, as you begin to put the pieces of prophetic scripture together, maybe you will when I make the case, this sounds an awful lot like a forced vaccination. It also brings to mind a text from Revelation chapter 9. I will be putting together an article very soon on this one subject of The Sting of The Scorpion, which is forced vaccination.
So, lets plug in the meaning of this last word, “Strike with the rod”
“Be in fear o’ Daughter of Zion because of fear and be appointed to lie sick, compressed together in your dwellings, in house arrest, as a prisoner, in total constraint. Strike with the rod (forced vaccinations), the children of Israel.” Micah 5:1, with the understanding of key words
Today, April 10th, 2020, as sit here writing this article, Micah 5:1 is 100% applicable to what is happening in our nation today.
2 “But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Too little to be among the clans of Judah,
From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel.
His goings forth are from long ago,
From the days of eternity.” Micah 5:2
If you read my article on Micah 4, The Woman of Revelation 12, you would know, this context is applicable here. Let’s pic k this verse apart to see if this statement is true.
Within the name Bethlehem Ephrathah, we can glean a lot of information.
Bethlehem is defined as House of Bread, as in those who keep Passover and Unleavened Bread (see John 6).
Ephrathah is the feminine of Ephraim (as in The Woman of Revelation 12), however, there is a specific meaning to this word that is very much esoteric through the ages……A fruitful turban or head covering.
With this in mind, please note the pronoun used in verse 2….”His goings forth are from long ago”. If Bethlehem Ephrathah is female, why is the pronoun being used in the text, His?
Well, here is what I think is going on.
Zechariah 3 speaks to the fact, there is an end time witness (one of the two witnesses), who has a miraculous conversion from filthy ways against Covenant Law to the acceptance of Covenant Law. Notice the text:
4 “He spoke and said to those who were standing before him, saying, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” Again he said to him, “See, I have taken your iniquity away from you and will clothe you with festal robes.” 5 Then I said, “Let them put A CLEAN TURBAN on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments, while the angel of the LORD was standing by” Zechariah 3:4–5
Thus it is clear to me, this one known as Bethlehem Ephrathah (The Woman of Revelation 12) actually works to convert the mind of one of the two witnesses to understand true Covenant Law…..And that makes total sense. The most misunderstood portions of covenant law is that of time and race, which as anyone who reads my writings on the matter is exactly what the sun, moon and stars denote in the Revelation 12:1 text.
Also, it must be noted, The Woman of Revelation 12 also does the exact same thing for The King, who is very clearly Donald Trump….A man with no understanding of Covenant Law what so ever.
So, updating where we are at in Micah 5. All Israel is under siege, literally wasting away in fear of a disease that has been vastly over rated. And out of that situation, comes the entity, very small in all the clans of Judah, which, oh by the way, points to the fact, this small one comes from the tribe of Benjamin, the smallest of all the tribes of Israel and the one who dwelt in The House of Judah anciently……And, as I have taught for some time now, Benjamin is a type of The Woman of Revelation 12.
3 “Therefore He will appoint them until the time
When she who is in labor has borne a child.
Then the remainder of His brethren
Will return to the sons of Israel.” Micah 5:3
This Woman of Revelation 12 has been being prepare until this very time. September 23, 2017 marked the birth of the son (The Donald Trump Presidency), which was conceived November 2016 via the election. However, as we have brought out already in this Micah series (chapter 4), Isaiah 66 foretells that the birth will take place, THEN comes the labor pains. Exactly opposite of what is normal in the birthing process.
America needs to know two things, desperately.
- Who the people and land of Israel is.
- How to properly keep The Appointed Times of YHWH (YHWH’s Calendar, His Sabbaths and Feast Days).
Micah 5:3 points to the fact, The Woman of Revelation 12 takes care of the first thing, teaching Israel who they are. Fact is, she takes care of point 2 as well. Its just not spoken of here.
4 “And He will arise and shepherd His flock
In the strength of YHWH,
In the majesty of the name of YHWH.
And THEY will remain,
Because at that time He will be great
To the ends of the earth. Micah 5:4
This High priest, spoken of in Zechariah 3, and The King (Donald Trump) are the “they” in verse 4. The “He” is The Father, YHWH, who is represented by both The High Priest, Joshua aka Yeshua and Our King Donald Trump.
5 “This One will be our peace.
When the Assyrian invades our land,
When he tramples on our citadels,
Then we will raise against him
Seven shepherds and eight leaders of men. Micah 5:5
Again, putting scripture with scripture. The Woman of Revelation 12 and the birth of The Son is spoken of in Isaiah chapters 7, 8 and 9. This event of the birth of the Child (The Donald Trump, Presidency) and the timing of Him knowing who his true parents are (Jacob and Leah/Rachel), as well as knowing right from wrong (covenant law) is tied directly to the attack of The King of Assyria (Gog of the land of Magog) on our land, the land of YHWH, America. This same attack is noted and explained in even more detail by Jeremiah in chapters 5, 6, and 7. As well as by Ezekiel in chapter 38.
That said, there is a savior that rises up, bringing peace to the troubled time….The prepared King and Priest…..Prepared by The Woman of Revelation 12.
6 “They will shepherd the land of Assyria with the sword,
The land of Nimrod at its entrances;
And He will deliver us from the Assyrian
When he attacks our land
And when he tramples our territory.”
The occupying nation has the rights to that land it has conquered and the land is then called by that occupying title. Thus at the time yet coming, America, will be called The Land of Assyria, because it will be the ancient nation of Assyria (Modern Day Russia) that will rule our land…..Until chpater 39 of Ezekiel takes place when YHWH sets straight who’s land it really belongs to……YHWH, the land of Israel. It is YHWH’s land, given to the nation of Israel for all time.
7 “Then the remnant of Jacob
Will be among many peoples
Like dew from the LORD,
Like showers on vegetation
Which do not wait for man
Or delay for the sons of men.
8 The remnant of Jacob
Will be among the nations,
Among many peoples
Like a lion among the beasts of the forest,
Like a young lion among flocks of sheep,
Which, if he passes through,
Tramples down and tears,
And there is none to rescue.
9 Your hand will be lifted up against your adversaries,
And all your enemies will be cut off.” Micah 5:7–9
Within our own land, America will be in a state of captivity.
10 “It will be in that day,” declares the LORD,
“That I will cut off your horses from among you
And destroy your chariots.” Micah 5:10
Horses denote two things in scripture. Vehicles and Politicians. Our electrical system will be cut off. It is said in at least two other places, Israel will go many days without a King. Look for total upheaval in our coming political system in 2020 and as we are now seeing, our roads are made desolate (see Leviticus 26:22)
11 “I will also cut off the cities of your land
And tear down all your fortifications.
12 “I will cut off sorceries from your hand,
And you will have fortune-tellers no more.
13 “I will cut off your carved images
And your sacred pillars from among you,
So that you will no longer bow down
To the work of your hands.
14 “I will root out your Asherim from among you
And destroy your cities. Micah 5:11–14
Verses 11 through 14 can be attributed directly and solely 100% to The Pagan, False Christian Churches of America and The Western World.
15“And I will execute vengeance in anger and wrath
On the nations which have not obeyed.” Micah 5:15
And as I have pointed out many times before, all nations are within our nation of America. All nations have come to The House of YHWH (Micah 4:1–2) to learn of our ways. In doing so, Israel (founding American) have learned of their ways (the nations of which are pagan to no end).
Egypt = Christianity.
Assyria = Police and Military.
Babylon = The Government of THE UNITED STATES.
Ammon =The Democratic Left.
Syria & Damascus = Islam
Tyre = Capitalism and our Economy
Moab = Catholicism
Canaanites = Merchants
Edom = Judaism, The Captain of Tyre’s Ship
Study Amos chapter 1 through 2 and Isaiah 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21…..All chapters dealing with YHWH coming judgment against these various aspect found in His land (America) at the end time.
In the next installment of The Micah Series, I will show the end time theme continues, as YHWH raises up a prophet to go to the government (mountain of Israel) THE UNITED STATES, both to destroy it and to rebuild it….That Prophet is The Woman of Revelation 12.
May YHWH bless you in your studies of His Word.
