|* Jeremiah 35
Jeremiah 35 is an interesting chapter because it gives us, from Father YHVH'S perspective, who would not want to partake of wine - "the blood of Christ." In Jeremiah 35, YHVH tells Jeremiah to gather a certain people and bring them into His house - The Temple, and offer them wine to drink, who are they, and, will they drink? Let's go to Father's Word and find out the answer to these questions.
Jeremiah 35:1 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, -> This is Our Jeremiah - the prophet of God, we'll see a different Jeremiah in a little bit so stay focused and on guard.
Jeremiah 35:2 Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink. -> First off, who are the Rechabites; it's important, do you know? Likewise also, it is important to know why Father wants Jeremiah and us to know all this information. Let's turn to I Chronicles 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and the Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab. -> These are some of the peoples Father wanted the Israelites to utterly destroy upon entering into Canaan, the Promised Land. They were part of the nethinims that Joshua, the elders and the Levites brought in to do their chores in Joshua 9. But let's see who these "Kenites" are: in the Hebrew it is word number #7017 qeyniy, or qiyniy - pronounced - kay-nee, and means: Patronymic from H7014; a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin. Now let's look at word H7014 qayin - pronounced kah-yin, and means: Kajin, the name of the first child, also a place in Palestine, and of an oriental tribe: - Cain, Kenite.. So, in other words, they were the offspring of Cain. Does that matter? What do you think Father is trying to show you here?!!! It definitely does matter. Why you say? Listen to what He has to say.
Jeremiah 35:3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites; -> This Jeremiah is NOT our Jeremiah, this ones father's name is "Habaziniah." Our Jeremiah's father's name is Hilkiah, which we can find in Jeremiah 1:1. If we don't pay attention, things can get confused pretty quickly, they—Cain and his offspring the kenites—named their children in "like names" of the seedline which Father wold be born in the flesh—the Adamic seedline—for that very reason - to confuse us, or keep us confused as to who they are, in other words to stay hidden. Go back to Genesis and see how the names of Cain's offspring closely matched those of Seth's; and, it wasn't because of "just wanting to sound similar," it was to keep us confused. But, listen to Father.
Jeremiah 35:4 And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door. -> Our Jeremiah brought these kenites into the deepest chambers of Father's house.
Jeremiah 35:5 And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, "drink ye wine." -> After bringing them into the deepest chambers, Jeremiah the prophet had pots of wine and cups brought in so they could partake, let's see if they do. But before we do, do you think it matters? Remember, we are the branches of the Vine, which is to say Christ; His blood (wine during communion) gives us our life.
Jeremiah 35:6 But they said, "We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us saying, 'Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever:' -> Their father, and I know it says "Jonadab" but think deep on this, their father (lower case "f") said drink no wine forever, in other words, never let wine pass your lips, do not ever partake of Christ's Life-giving Blood! Remember also, this is Our Father showing this to us for this very reason.
Jeremiah 35:7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers." -> Is the picture starting to come into focus yet? Remember what Father told Cain when He drove him out of the Garden of Eden?! Genesis 4:12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. -> So we can see to the time of Jeremiah they still don't\couldn't sow seed because the earth won't yield her strength; or build houses, so that they can live hidden among people. To this day they still live as such, most in Jerusalem today are such; "non-Israelites (but claiming to be of Judah)" and the world doesn't even know it. Cain and his offspring, these kenites, are not part of Adam's genealogy of Genesis 5, and that is because Cain, though born of Eve, was NOT of Adam. He was the "fruit of the labor" of the sexual union between satan (tree of knowledge of good and evil) in his role of deceiver (serpent) and Eve in the Garden of Eden. But our Father, YHVH, has a plan for these kenites and this is why He is allowing all this. Remember the "test on Father's Word" I said was coming and that sadly most will fail? How many people know and understand this, yet here is Father showing us all this. But if you don't read chapter-by-chapter you'll never understand it. This is also part of the "Key of David" from Revelation 3:6-10 and 2:7-11 and why that is so very important. Let's go there for a second: Revelation 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. [3:7] And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; [3:8] I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My Word, and hast not denied My name. [3:9] Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee [3:10] Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth [3:11] Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. [3:12] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and the name of the city of My God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My new name. -> and Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. [2:8] And unto the angel of the church of Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; [2:9] I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan. [2:10] Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you in prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. [2:11] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. -> What did Philadelphia and Smyrna know? those that claim to be Jews and are not, in other words, those that claim to be Adam's but are satan's. Let's keep reading to see what else Father says about these kenites here.
Jeremiah 35:8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine in all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters; -> Our Father knew that wine in Jeremiah's future would come to symbolize the Blood of Christ, as did satan, and his offspring Rechab told his offspring, to tell theirs to not drink it as a statute forever, as he wanted them to have nothing to do with salvation or the partaking of Christ's blood during communion. Are you a Christian and still refusing to partake of wine during communion.
Jeremiah 35: 9 Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed;
Jeremiah 35:10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us. -> Yes they have been very obedient to their father haven't they?! WATCH!
Jeremiah 35:11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, "Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem. -> They dwell where?! Remember "those that say they are Jews but do lie and are of the synagogue of satan?" Again this is our Father showing us this so we may learn.
Jeremiah 35:12 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,
Jeremiah 35:13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; 'Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, 'Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to My words?' saith the LORD. -> You can hear the pleading of our Father with His children here in this verse. What a sad thing for a Father to have to plead this hard with His children to listen to Him when He is giving good instruction. Though this also is an example to us, because look at how many of His children today don't listen to Him. So many of His children deny Him, so many sit on the fence and say that they don't know if He is real, and even most Christians don't have time to listen to His word chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse. So you tell me, what has changed?
Jeremiah 35:14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto Me. -> Father's heart is breaking here. This is why He told Jeremiah to bring Jonadab's children here into His temple, to show Jeremiah and us today how well Jonadab's (and satan's) children listen to him/them, but yet the Creator of all things and people will not listen to Him.
Jeremiah 35:15 I have sent also unto you all My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, 'Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your evil doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers:' but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto Me. -> Father is pleading with His children. What a shame He has to do this.
Jeremiah 35:16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this People hath not hearkened unto Me: -> Father is about to tell us what He thinks about Jonadab's children listening to their father compared to YVHV'S children listening to Him. This is how it is in the world and the United States today. The non-Christian don't love Him and even most Christians say they love Him but, it is with their lips and not their hearts (mind,) they won't take the time to study His Word to know and understand Him. Yeah they "read their bibles," but they turn to man to understand His Word and not Him, they want the milk and not the meat.
Jeremiah 35:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; 'Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.' -> The people of this country, and of all the rest of the world also, will also soon feel Father's anger, jealously and wrath. Think about this for a minute, for how long during the first earth age did Father's children rebel and follow satan? We don't know. But, for over 4,000 years now His children have not been listening to Him. He sent the prophets and what did they do? They killed them. He sent Himself, what did they do? They killed Him. He ensured His word got out to us even living to this time today and what do they do? Listen to fairy tales and things that tickle their ears, like mumbo jumbo language, fly away doctrines, His "priests" the catholic priests that is, molest children and the church protects the priests, oh yeah, it's ok to be homosexual and be a homosexual pastor. Yes, the world is ripe for feeling His wrath.
Jeremiah 35:18 And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, "Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; 'Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his percepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you: -> Here Father is about to commend these kenites for keeping their father's word and He will also make a pledge to them for their obedience.
Jeremiah 35:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.' -> YHVH has just told these kenites that they will always have someone to hold their lineage together so that they will fulfill the negative part of Father's plan. He will neither interrupt nor destroy them, and yet if one changes from the ways of satan and turns to Father, He will gladly accept them. YHVH is also promising them that because of their faithful obedience to their father's commandments they will always be successful in this age of the flesh. In other words, in a sense, He has blessed them in their flesh bodies, but, that is all that they will have, flesh.
