King Jesus of Judah

I awoke in the middle of the night to feel the dread in the air. Jesus is not anywhere. There is not one moral lesson on the world wide web. No man of God opened his mouth – or ears – to hear and speak the truth. Because alleged Men of God bundled everything up and handed it over to The Liar of Liars who did not believe he was King David – until False Christian Prophets put The Lie of Lie in his ear – and his bloody heart that has no remorse for the Lawmen who died defending our Capitol – our Rock – that God gave to us Lovers of Democracy.

So, it’s up to me?…The son of Rosemary, daughter of Mary Magdalene? How Jesus now looks more and more like me, when I was young. How old was Jesus when he was ritually hung on the cross – after he read from Ruth and had enjoyed the Shevout meal? I am thinking – fifteen? How about – fourteen? There are no missing years. A year after he astounds the elders inside the temple, then his ritual ministry as a Candidate for the King of Judah, began.

And they seized him, his beloved family and friends, and they went with him into the Valley of Death where a crowd gathered to scourge him, spit on him, throw small stones at him as they – cursed him. For Jesus was the embodiment of David, who brought God’s curse upon them, a plague as punishment for counting the Jews. Who was the Angel carrying a sword?

 Satan was against Israel, and he caused David to count the people of Israel. 2 So David said to Joab and the commanders of the troops, “Go and count all the Israelites from Beersheba to Dan.[a] Then tell me so I will know how many there are.”

I saw a photo of a evil woman pointing her witchy finger at the press, who she believed mocked her for losing in court, her false accusation – the votes were miscounted. Liar! And she promises to be exceedingly wrathful, surpassing the wrath of the ex-president – who still lies about…….THE COUNT…..on Christmas morn.

IN GOD WE TRUST is written on our MONEY! The young Jesus bid his kindred to pay the debtors the thirty pieces of silver for Ruth’s threshing floor – that was held in ransom for all those years. Is it possible the temple of David was built upon Boaz’s threshing floor, and thus the name of one of the pillars? Behold….THE ROCK!

The Sons of Judah worshipped other gods – and not the Lord. David makes an atonement and ACCEPTS The Lord as his God – on the Shavout. Did Boaz and Ruth hear several choirs in the high places around Jerusalem – and there was rejoicing?

“Your sorrow will soon turn to joy…..For you will have a king who is righteous with the Lord!?

David did not die on the cross, nor did Jesus. They owned the Word and Spirit of God, and were reborn.

“Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.”

Amen!

John ‘The Nazarite’

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shavuot

So the Lord sent a terrible disease on Israel, and seventy thousand people died. 15 God sent an angel to destroy Jerusalem, but when the angel started to destroy it, the Lord saw it and felt very sorry about the terrible things that had happened. So he said to the angel who was destroying, “That is enough! Put down your arm!” The angel of the Lord was then standing at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.

28 When David saw that the Lord had answered him on the threshing floor of Araunah, he offered sacrifices there. 29 The Holy Tent that Moses made while the Israelites were in the desert and the altar of burnt offerings were in Gibeon at the place of worship. 30 But David could not go to the Holy Tent to speak with God, because he was afraid of the angel of the Lord and his sword.

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.

Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.

Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.

I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the Lord.

I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.

11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.

12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.

13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

14 But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my God.

15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies’ sake.

17 Let me not be ashamed, O Lord; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.

18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

21 Blessed be the Lord: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.

23 O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.

Shavuot (listen (help·info)), or Shavuos (listen (help·info)) in some Ashkenazi usage (Hebrew: שָׁבוּעוֹת‎, Šāvūʿōṯ, lit. “Weeks”), commonly known in English as the Feast of Weeks, is a Jewish holiday that occurs on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan (in the 21st century, it may fall between May 15 and June 14 on the Gregorian calendar). In the Bible, Shavuot marked the wheat harvest in the Land of Israel (Exodus 34:22). In addition, Orthodox rabbinic traditions teach that the date also marks the revelation of the Torah to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai, which, according to the tradition of Orthodox Judaism, occurred at this date in 1314 BCE.[2]

The word Shavuot means “weeks”, and it marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer. Its date is directly linked to that of Passover; the Torah mandates the seven-week Counting of the Omer, beginning on the second day of Passover, to be immediately followed by Shavuot. This counting of days and weeks is understood to express anticipation and desire for the giving of the Torah. On Passover, the people of Israel were freed from their enslavement to Pharaoh; on Shavuot, they were given the Torah and became a nation committed to serving God.[3]

While it is sometimes referred to as Pentecost (in Koinē Greek: Πεντηκοστή) due to its timing after Passover, “pentecost” meaning “fifty” in Greek and Shavuot occurring fifty days after the first day of Pesach/Passover, it is not the same as the Christian Pentecost, which comes fifty days after Pascha/Easter.[4][Note 1][5]

One of the biblically ordained Three Pilgrimage Festivals, Shavuot is traditionally celebrated in Israel for one day, where it is a public holiday, and for two days in the diaspora.[6][7][8]

David Counts the Israelites

21 Satan was against Israel, and he caused David to count the people of Israel. So David said to Joab and the commanders of the troops, “Go and count all the Israelites from Beersheba to Dan.[a] Then tell me so I will know how many there are.”

But Joab said, “May the Lord give the nation a hundred times more people. My master the king, all the Israelites are your servants. Why do you want to do this, my master? You will make Israel guilty of sin.”

But the king commanded Joab, so Joab left and went through all Israel. Then he returned to Jerusalem. Joab gave the list of the people to David. There were one million one hundred thousand men in all of Israel who could use the sword, and there were four hundred seventy thousand men in Judah who could use the sword. But Joab did not count the tribes of Levi and Benjamin, because he didn’t like King David’s order. David had done something God had said was wrong, so God punished Israel.

Then David said to God, “I have sinned greatly by what I have done! Now, I beg you to forgive me, your servant, because I have been very foolish.”

The Lord said to Gad, who was David’s seer, 10 “Go and tell David, ‘This is what the Lord says: I offer you three choices. Choose one of them and I will do it.’”

11 So Gad went to David and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Choose for yourself 12 three years of hunger. Or choose three months of running from your enemies as they chase you with their swords. Or choose three days of punishment from the Lord, in which a terrible disease will spread through the country. The angel of the Lord will go through Israel destroying the people.’ Now, David, decide which of these things I should tell the Lord who sent me.”

13 David said to Gad, “I am in great trouble. Let the Lord punish me, because the Lord is very merciful. Don’t let my punishment come from human beings.”

14 So the Lord sent a terrible disease on Israel, and seventy thousand people died. 15 God sent an angel to destroy Jerusalem, but when the angel started to destroy it, the Lord saw it and felt very sorry about the terrible things that had happened. So he said to the angel who was destroying, “That is enough! Put down your arm!” The angel of the Lord was then standing at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.

16 David looked up and saw the angel of the Lord in the sky, holding his sword drawn and pointed at Jerusalem. Then David and the elders bowed facedown on the ground. They were wearing rough cloth to show their grief. 17 David said to God, “I am the one who sinned and did wrong. I gave the order for the people to be counted. These people only followed me like sheep. They did nothing wrong. Lord my God, please punish me and my family, but stop the terrible disease that is killing your people.”

18 Then the angel of the Lord told Gad to tell David that he should build an altar to the Lord on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. 19 So David did what Gad told him to do, in the name of the Lord.

20 Araunah was separating the wheat from the straw. When he turned around, he saw the angel. Araunah’s four sons who were with him hid. 21 David came to Araunah, and when Araunah saw him, he left the threshing floor and bowed facedown on the ground before David.

22 David said to him, “Sell me your threshing floor so I can build an altar to the Lord here. Then the terrible disease will stop. Sell it to me for the full price.”

23 Araunah said to David, “Take this threshing floor. My master the king, do anything you want. Look, I will also give you oxen for the whole burnt offerings, the threshing boards for the wood, and wheat for the grain offering. I give everything to you.”

24 But King David answered Araunah, “No, I will pay the full price for the land. I won’t take anything that is yours and give it to the Lord. I won’t offer a burnt offering that costs me nothing.”

25 So David paid Araunah about fifteen pounds of gold for the place. 26 David built an altar to the Lord there and offered whole burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. David prayed to the Lord, and he answered him by sending down fire from heaven on the altar of burnt offering. 27 Then the Lord commanded the angel to put his sword back into its holder.

28 When David saw that the Lord had answered him on the threshing floor of Araunah, he offered sacrifices there. 29 The Holy Tent that Moses made while the Israelites were in the desert and the altar of burnt offerings were in Gibeon at the place of worship. 30 But David could not go to the Holy Tent to speak with God, because he was afraid of the angel of the Lord and his sword.

Purchase of Araunah the Jebusite’s Threshing Floor

(II Samuel 24 18-25)

Gad came to David on that day and said to him, “Go up, erect an altar to Hashem on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.”  So David went up as Gad had said, as Hashem had commanded.  Araunah looked out and saw the king and his servants coming across to him, and Araunah went out and prostrated himself to the king, with his face to the ground.  Araunah asked, “Why has my lord the king come to his servant?”  And David replied, “To buy threshing floor from you in order to build an altar to Hashem, so that the pestilence may cease from the people.”  But Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take [it] and offer whatever is proper in his eyes.  See, the cattle and [available] for elevation-offerings, and the threshing tools and the implements of the cattle are [available] for firewood.”  Araunah the king gave all of it to the king, and Araunah said to the king, “May Hashem your God accept your [offerings].”  But the king told Araunah, “No; I shall purchase it from you for a price, and ?I shall not offer up to Hashem my God free elevation-offerings!” So David bought the threshing floor and the cattle for fifty silver shekels.  David built and altar there to Hashem, and he offered elevation-offering and peace-offerings.  Hashem then answered the prayers of the land, and the pestilence ceased from Israel.

(I Chronicles 21 22-30) 
David said to Ornan, “Give me the site of the threshing floor, so that I may build an altar to Hashem in it.  Give it to me for the full price, so that the plague will cease from the people.”  But Ornan said to David, “Take [it] for yourself, and let my lord the king do whatever is proper in his eyes.  See, I have given you the cattle for burnt-offerings, the threshing tools for firewood, and the wheat for a meal-offering – I have given everything!”  But King David said to Ornan, “No; I shall buy it for the full price, for I shall not offer to Hashem that which is yours, nor offer up a free burnt-offering!”  So David gave Ornan for the place gold shekels weighing six hundred.  David then built an altar there to Hashem, and he offered burnt-offering and peace-offerings.  He called out to Hashem, and He responded to him with fire from heaven upon the Altar of burnt-offering.  Hashem then said [the command] to the angel, and he returned his sword to its sheath.  At that time, when David saw that Hashem had answered him at the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, he brought offerings there.  The Tabernacle of Hashem, which Moses had made in the Wilderness, and the Altar of Burnt-offering, were at the High Place in Gibeon at that time, but David could not go before it to seek God, for he was terrified before the sword of the angel of Hashem.
