(Judg 6:1-6)  And the children of Israel did evil [wickedness - sin] in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years [Tribulation]. And the hand [power] of Midian prevailed against Israel: and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which are in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds [in very evident fear; the 5th Seal of Satan’s wrath cf. Rev 6:15-17 the 7th Seal of God’s wrath]. And so it was, when Israel had sown [“The seed is the word of God.” Luke 8:11], that the Midianites [brawling, contentious, discord, strife] came up, and the Amalekites [descendants of Esau – lust of the flesh], and the children of the east [Arabians], even they came up against them; And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth [Mark 4:26,27], till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance [for the preservation of life, i.e. the quick: victuals /// to live, revive: keep alive, save, make whole] for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass. For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers [locusts] for multitude; for both they and their camels were without number: and they entered into the land [the church – the USA] to destroy it [How? Islamic immigration, mingling, dilution, and reverse acculturation; a similar process to that which is happening to the KJV Bible]. And Israel [he will rule as God] was greatly impoverished [enfeebled, dried up (strengthless)] because of the Midianites [that heavy cloud of darkness which is invading and covering the land – can’t see]; and the children of Israel cried unto the LORD. [Joel 1:1-20: the famine of the Word of God]

1.       “children of the east”: Arabian = Heb: in the fig. sense of sterility; Arab (i.e. Arabia), (through the idea of covering with a texture); to grow dusky at sundown: be darkened, (toward) evening. [i.e. darkness]


(Amos 8:11,12)  Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

1.       God’s Word is a covering hedge (Heb: for protection and restraint: Job 1:10). God’s Word is being exorcised from the world (aion) – John 1:14, and in the place of “peace” is “chaos.” But fear not dear brothers and sisters, you have God’s Word – inside you.

2.       (John 1:14)  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among [en; “in”] us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

3.       (Luke 17:20,21)  And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation [ocular evidence (sight)]: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you [entos; within (inside)].

4.       (Jer 31:33)  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. [“I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts” Heb 8:10]

5.       In Luke 17:20,21, Jesus Christ was addressing the Pharisees who were a type (symbol) of all unbelievers, then and now (we were all unbelievers at one time). The tabernacle in the wilderness, which is another type of covering hedge, is a representation of the kingdom of God given for your protection and restraint – metaphorically, it is the Law. It is the bones of the Body of Christ. The pattern of the tabernacle (the Law) has indeed been placed inside all people, but without the accouterments to the furniture, i.e. without fire on the brasen altar, without water in the brasen laver, without bread upon the table of shewbread, without oil in the golden candlestick, without fire in the golden altar, and without the two tables of testimony (God the Father), the golden pot of manna (God the Son), and Aaron’s rod the budded (God the Holy Ghost) inside the ark of the covenant (which ark is a clear type of us). And Chaos, “the destroyer” (Exo 12:23 & Ezek 28:11-19; Mat 24:15; John 10:10; 2 Cor 4:4) stands in the ark in place of the covering mercy seat. This entire picture of darkness represents “a famine in the land… of hearing the words of the LORD.” Please note the absence of bread (Jesus Christ) and water (the Holy Spirit); a famine unto “Death, and Hell followed” (Rev 6:8).

6.       The latter description is the tabernacle ascribed to the Pharisees by Jesus. We note that in the Strong’s Concordance Hebrew definition of tabernacle, #4908 means “the lair of animals, the grave” (death: for the unsaved). Whereas, this exact same tabernacle is, in the exact same Hebrew definition #4908, “a shepherd’s hut, and a residence” (life: for the saved) - when God smites (lights) the brasen altar of sacrifice in you (salvation: John 12:24) with fire (the Holy Spirit), and all the accouterments to the furniture are immediately set in place with the mercy seat - being occupied by God. 

7.       We also may note that the “ark” of the covenant is made of shittim wood, a type of man, and is covered inside and outside with gold (Exo 25:10,11), which is a type of the purity of God in the OT, and a type of the “blood” of Jesus Christ in the NT – it certainly covers and is pure, is it not? “Ark” has the Hebrew meanings of “chest,” i.e. treasure chest, and “coffin.” Your ark, your choice.

8.       [THE OUTSIDE BLESSING]  (Mat 5:45) That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on [epi; upon] the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on [epi; upon] the just [innocent, holy: righteous] and on the unjust [wicked; heathen: unrighteous].

9.       [THE INSIDE BLESSING]  (Rom 11:29) For the gifts [charisma; spiritual endowment, miraculous faculty: (free) gifts (1 Cor 12)] and calling [invitation (of salvation)] of God are without repentance [irrevocable]. [“and whom he called, them he also justified (innocent, holy: righteous)” Rom 8:30]


THE TWO BEASTS (therion; dangerous animals: venomous, wild beasts)

(2 Th 2:6-12)  And now ye know what withholdeth [is restraining] that he might be revealed [to take off the cover, disclosed cf. Rom 8:18] in his time. For the mystery of iniquity [illegality, violation of the law, wickedness] doth already work: only he who now letteth [restrains] will let [restrain], until he be taken [to become] out of the way [from restraining and hindering - evil]. And then shall that Wicked [lawless: without law; the first beast, secular (Rev 13:1)] be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth [“the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” Eph 6:17 & Rev 19:15], and shall destroy with the brightness [manifestation, the advent of Christ: appearing (Gk: epiphaneia; 6x)] of his coming [in us - the Sixth Seal]: Even him [the second beast, religious (Rev 13:11) in alliance with the first beast], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power [miraculous power: miracles, mighty wonderful work] and signs [miracles] and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness [delusion: deceit] of unrighteousness in them that perish [are destroyed fully]; because they received not the love [agape] of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [a straying from orthodoxy or piety: deceit, to deceive, delusion, error], that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness [(legal) injustice: iniquity].

1.       (Mat 4:16,17)  The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

2.       (Gal 3:22-24)  But the scripture hath concluded all under sin [i.e. darkness], that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ [i.e. the Light] might be given to them that believe.

3.       (John 8:12)  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

4.       (John 9:5)  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

5.       Some other types of the hedge of God – for your protection and restraint (Job 1:10): the Garden of Eden, Noah’s ark, the Ten Commandments, the Tent, the Tabernacle, the ark of the covenant, the Temple, the ship sent to the other side (Mark 6:45), the Promised Land, the barn (Mat 13:30), the church, the Body of Christ, the whole armor of God, and the Bible (KJV) – the whole Bible, e.g. the Old Testament: “And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning (the Lamb of God)” (Exo 12:10); and the New Testament: “And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Mat 26:27,28). Eat and drink all of it!


(Rev 13:11-15)  And I beheld another beast [a dangerous animal: venomous, wild beast (the false prophet – religious leader)] coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns [king-priest] like [in appearance or character] a lamb, and he spake as a dragon [the great dragon, that old serpent, the Devil, Satan: Rev 12:9]. And he exerciseth all the power [the power of fear] of the first beast [secular leader: “that Wicked” 2 Th 2:8; Rev 13:1-10)] before him, and causeth [how?] the earth and them which dwell therein [who are walking by sight] to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed [for they deem themselves as Gods, deceiving themselves: 1 John 1:8; “strong delusion” 2 Th 2:11]. And he doeth great wonders [miracles], so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image [eikon, i-kone': icon. Dict:  a picture, image, or other representation] to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live [fallen Adam – unsaved man]. And he had power to give life [i.e. animation – only God has the power to create] unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause [how?] that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed [Great Tribulation (tribulation intensified) – the Fifth Seal: Rev 6:9,10; 7:13-17)].

1.       (Luke 4:25)  But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; [1 Kings 18:38; “and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them” Rev 20:9]
