The Failed Israelites.
Comprehending the significance and the consequence of the failure of the Israelites is pivotal to experience the insightful context of the Divine Plan. The Israelites lacked a listening ear, and never circumcised their heart as Moses taught. Instead they pursued selfishness, greed, arrogance, and idolatry—attaching to Baal, the god of the Canaanites. The Israelites oppressed the poor, committed adultery, prostitution, and incest. The Israelites gleaned their fields, charged inflated interest on loans, and pursed dishonest gain concerning their fellow citizen. Throughout the generations from Moses until the destruction of Solomon’s temple in 586 BCE, the prophets presented themselves to teach, correct, and discipline the Israelites—to no avail, the stubborn stiffed-necked greedy cultural entity refused to change. The Prophet Jeremiah taught recovering and returning to Divine favor is impossible for the Israelites.
Babylon, The Two become One.
The blend of the Israelites and Canaanites entered Babylon, and they departed as Jews with their religion and dogma of Judaism. The foundation of Judaism is rooted with a blend of Canaanite Baal worshiping rituals, and the ardent pretense activities of the Israelites such as festivals, food regulations, and a false presentation of an outward emanation that is based on arrogance. Judah, the son of Jacob, left the tribe of Israel and married a Canaanite wife. The two tribe kingdom of Judah never recovered; the influence of the darkness of the Canaanite lifestyle dominated over the tribe of Judah. Consequently, selfishness, greed, and arrogance are legitimate for humanity under the justification of religious dogma.
Three More Prophets Sent to Israel.
The display of patience is evident from the Divine Spirit by sending three more prophets after the captivity in Babylon—the correction given was to no avail, the engrained selfishness of Judaism proved unconquerable. The captives of Babylon returned to Jerusalem under the directive of the Persians. During this time, before the seventy-year exile (no temple) concluded, the prophet Zechariah taught concerning the Divine Plan.
He asked me, “What do you see?” I answered, “I see a solid gold lamp-stand with a bowl at the top and seven lights on it, with seven channels to the lights. Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.” —Zechariah 4:2-3
“These seven are the eyes of the LORD, which range through the whole earth. Then I said to him, What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lamp stand? And a second time I answered and said to him, What are these two branches of the olive trees, which are beside the two golden pipes from which the golden oil is poured out? He said to me, Do you not know what these are? I said, No, my lord. Then he said, These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth.” —Zechariah 4:11-14
Context of Prominent Importance!
The artwork of the Ark of the Covenant portrays the context of the teaching of Zechariah. The Ark of the Covenant is a portrayal of two spirit persons covering the mercy seat of the Divine. Zechariah, clearly teaches that there are two anointed ones that will rule their own kingdom. The anointed one of the light on the right, which is Jesus—and the anointed one of the darkness on the left, which is Baal the accuser who will arrive in the flesh as the Man of Lawlessness to deceive the world. The two anointed ones are the first two spirit persons to be created, though, Jesus was the first.
There is an immense amount of artwork around the world that depicts the two anointed ones and the Divine Spirit—from Egypt to Tibet, artwork that exhibits the truth; however, humanity is blinded from this revelation. It’s essential that the accusers of the darkness cause deception—the predominant emotions of fear, guilt, and shame are a tactic of the lower entities use to enslave the minds and hearts of humanity.
The last Prophet Malachi rebuked the scribes and priests of Judaism because of their egocentric lifestyle. In Addition, Malachi spoke of the anointed messenger of the light, the judgment era, and the Man of Lawlessness. Malachi declared to remember the commandments that Moses wrote down and that the judgment era will arrive. Four hundred years passed until the birth of Jesus—a prophet ceased to exist that taught the truth among Judaism.
The Teachings of Jesus, Daniel and Zechariah.
The birth of Jesus was during the beginning of the Roman Empire, and at the height of the religion of the Pharisees and Scribes of Judaism. After the anointment, symbolized by water baptism, Jesus embarked on a three and a half year journey—healing, feeding the populace, condemning falsehood, teaching the truth of the kingdom of the light, the judgement era, and the arrival of the man of lawlessness. Jesus existed at the highest level of consciousness of any human that has lived. Jesus set the example by suffering and dying that resulted in a resurrection as an incorruptible Sacred Spirit to heaven. During the judgment era, the children of the light will be tested to their death, and then resurrected to the new egoless earth as Isaiah and Daniel taught. The chosen little flock—the few that can travel the narrow road—will share in the sufferings of Jesus; transformation into a Sacred Spirit will occur upon death; however, only few compared to the billions of people will be chosen for such a privilege. Zechariah’s prophesy, written after the captivity of Babylon, clearly teaches concerning the destiny of the children of the light.
“Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, against the man who stands next to me, declares the LORD of hosts.
Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
I will turn my hand against the little ones. In the whole land, declares the LORD, two thirds shall be cut off and perish, and one third shall be left alive.
And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, They are my people; and they will say, The LORD is my God.” —Zechariah 13:7-9
Zechariah’s writing is referring to suffering and death in regards to the children of the light. The Prophets, Apostles, and Jesus suffered in the body and died, setting the example and destiny for the children of the light. The writing of Zechariah is supplied with information concerning the Divine Plan, though some manipulation occurred, discernment of the context can be ascertained. Zechariah’s writing style combines the context of his era, and context of the judgment era—discernment is vital to achieve accurate understanding.
The first half of the Divine Plan found its fulfillment at the time of Jesus’ resurrection: the anointed one (messiah) of the children of the light entered heaven as King and High Priest. From this time onward, the accuser in spirit, the opposite person of Jesus will pursue wickedness in the earth. Religion will dominate and control, which enslaves entire countries and cultures, and cause deception in preparation of the arrival of the man of lawlessness—Baal the accuser in the flesh—the predestined anointed king of the children of the darkness.
