One of the major mottos of our country is the above title. But are you taking notice concerning what is going on in our nation among our leaders and people? Are you noticing the venom that is being exhibited by our leaders? Oh, if they were exhibiting anger and hatred against the enemies that have attacked us, that would be one thing, but the venomous hatred that is being exhibited is by our leaders of one party against the other. This anger, hatred and bitterness is not working in the best interest of our nation or people. Yahshua said, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand," Mt. 12:25.

Much of the division being sown in our government is being done by leaders in order to gain power and prestige for self and or their party. But whether you have noticed it or not, we are in a war. To create or cause division during a war is treasonous, to say the least. The sinking of the Lusitania led to a uniting sentiment that eventually caused us to enter into World War I. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about a unity that caused us to enter into World War II. The attack on the twin towers in New York led to a national and political unity that caused us to begin to wage war on the terrorism disseminated by fanatical Islam. But alas, we have degenerated from the hardy, self-sacrificing peoples that we were only a generation ago.

Is it possible that we, as a whole, suffer from ADD? (Attention Deficit Disorder) We no longer seem to be able to have the patience that it takes to focus on anything for any length of time. When we are hungry, we want our food immediately, so we either go to the fast foods restaurants or slap something in the microwave and we have what we want in moments.

Have we been trained to be impatient? Are we being trained to be impatient? What tools would be utilized to bring this about? How about running this experiment for yourself. Almost all of us have at least one television. Turn off all of the lights in the house, turn on the television, but mute it so that all you have is the light available from the television. Then sit there or you can even go into another room and watch this from a distance. You will notice that the television will flicker constantly. When there is no other light and there is no sound, you will find that this will become irritating after awhile. (At least it is for me.)

Is this constant flickering, which is irritating without any other light and without sound, what is helping to cause our impatience? Is it training us (subliminally) and our children to exhibit the symptoms of ADD?

Another problem is that we don’t have to build things slowly as we did in times past. We have been blessed with such prosperity that our young people want to begin life with everything at their fingertips. New expensive cars, houses, land, etc. You don’t have to wait, just borrow. We are living like kings, but in many cases, in order to do this, we are working like slaves. We don’t have time to rest.

Even our music has to have a very rapid beat to it. Gone are the days when classical music, slow dances, etc., are popular. I don’t like to watch movies very much at all, but some of the things that I see concerning the music, dancers and entertainment today is that everything is sped up. People on a dance floor are constantly gyrating, and wriggling like a mass of worms.

The Prophet Daniel was told, "shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased," 12:4. We are in the last days. Many are running to and fro upon the face of this earth in a frenzy that is unprecedented. The increase of our knowledge is also unprecedented.

But another thing is being brought about by this fast paced world that is gaining tremendously in knowledge, but not the knowledge of Yahweh. We are being trained to be dissatisfied. We are being trained to be impatient. We are being divided into various camps of discontent. We are being trained to be extremely critical. We are being set up for a GREAT FALL!

Prophecy is being fulfilled upon a world that is extremely knowledgeable concerning physical things, but ignorant and blinded concerning spiritual things. In these last days, we must turn to our Creator Yahweh, His Beloved Son and our Savior Yahshua the Messiah and their word of truth. Therein we will learn patience. Therein we will learn trust. Therein we will learn hope. Therein we will learn to be focused on a future that is sure based upon the promise of His Word. Therein we will find a confidence that will never fail. United with Yahweh through Yahshua, we will stand and never fall.

True riches are found in Yahweh’s word. A true and sure future is found in Him. Establish your foundation on Yahshua in accordance with Yahweh’s word. Stand united with Him and your blessings and pleasures will endure forever and ever. HalleluYah!!!!!

Things are happening in this world to begin to bring about more powerful prophetic fulfillment. Certain things have taken place that will help us to understand what is really happening and why.

By Jerry Healan

 I am here to tell you that the Scriptures are alive! I am here to tell you that prophetic events are being fulfilled! Two seemingly unrelated events, actually three (two of them are interrelated) have occurred within days of each other. These events have been proclaimed in the news around the world, yet, only those who have their minds set upon Yahweh’s word can understand the significance of these events! But then, even a fourth event is also related to these other three. Sound confusing? Well….just read on.

  We all know about the war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel. These conflicts are quite interrelated because the Muslims hate the Jews and the nation named “Israel,” and they also hate America for our support of that nation. Of course, we do have a paradoxical situation there because America not only has supported the Jewish nation of Israel and poured billions of dollars into her annually, but America has also poured billions of dollars in support into many of the nations surrounding Israel, especially the Palestinians.

  The assault on the twin towers in New York City has caused America to become involved even more deeply than she cared to be in the Middle-Eastern conflict. We now have troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. This author has understood since the beginning that we have been lured into a trap, which has been set up by our enemies.

  But another trap has been set also. Several years ago Israel had entered into Lebanon because of the incursion of insurgents from that area and had occupied that region for quite some time. But about six years ago, Israel, weary of the vigilance and expense required for that occupation, was encouraged to evacuate that area on the promise that a UN peace-keeping force would replace them and secure and maintain the peace and safety.

  We now know the story, don’t we? Hezbollah was allowed to operate freely in that area, right under the UN’s nose. They built an elaborate tunnel system, fortresses, defense systems, and armed themselves to the hilt with all kinds of devastating weapons and rockets, preparing for a day when they would utilize this system against Israel. Support for this came from Syria, Iran and probably even Iraq.

  The day to attack has come! They purposefully attacked Israel, capturing soldiers and firing rockets into Israel’s northernmost cities. They purposefully lured Israel into this conflict. It seems that they want to lure Israel into an Iraqi type situation that America finds herself in.

  It is interesting that the attack was revealed before the terrorists were fully prepared. You see, the Iranians, according to a Stratfor Intelligence Report, had ordered Hezbollah to create a disturbance during the G-8 Summit because they wanted to take attention off of their preparations for nuclear weapons. Hezbollah responded by attacking an Israeli outpost, killing several soldiers and taking two prisoner. The Israelis began their retaliation campaign and Hezbollah decided to go ahead with their terror campaign by firing rockets into Northern Israel. Hezbollah intended to begin their terror campaign sometime in September, October. Sound familiar? Right around the Feast days. They let the cat out of the bag. The UN is traitorous, to say the least.

  Traitors in our own country “voted for the war against Iraq, before they voted against it.” Now that we are there, the traitors are finding every opportunity to condemn the administration, the military and their attempts to revamp the country into a self-supporting democracy (which is yet another story in itself that must be dealt with). The news media is also utilizing every opportunity to “find fault” with American troops, completely ignoring or glossing over the savagery of the enemy when Americans and American troops fall into the hands of the enemy.


    But let’s get to the “amazing find!” A construction worker was digging in a bogland in Ireland the week of 7/16-7/22/06, when he spotted something. Before digging further, he jumped off the equipment and retrieved the item, which was revealed to be an ancient book of Psalms written in the Latin language. The book is dated back to around 800-1000 CE. There are several amazing things concerning this find, the first of which is that it was discovered at all! The second amazing thing is that it was perfectly preserved in the bog (We all know what damp soil does to paper and other products, right?). Thirdly, it was opened to Psalm 83, which says, “Keep not thou silence, O Elohim: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O Elohim. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of Elohim in possession. O my Elohim, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Yahweh. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that thou, whose name alone is YAHWEH, art the most high over all the earth.”

  The Israeli news service “Arutz Sheva” has posted a news article on this very find, which serves to confuse the issue. They say that it was originally erroneously reported that the book was open to Psa. 83. But confusion came in when others claimed that it was opened to Psa. 82


    Let’s ask the question, Who are the hidden ones? Judah can’t be the “hidden ones,” at least those who are currently in the land of Israel. Neither can any Jewish person who is openly known as being Jewish, nor is the name Israel hidden since that nation has adopted that name. Generally speaking, the hidden Israelites are the ones who were cast away to become “not my people.” (Hosea, chapter 1)

  Specifically speaking, Yahweh’s true “hidden ones” currently are the 144,000 firstfruits. (Rev. 7 & 14)

  Did you know that the Celts, Goths, Gauls, etc., were descended from the northern kingdom of Israel. There are many works available in today’s literary world, which prove that such is true. Ireland, where the subject “amazing find” was discovered, was anciently known as “Iddewan” or Jew’s land in the ancient Irish, Celtic dialect. Did you know that many of these ancient Celtic peoples lived in Western Europe in a land named “Armorica?”

  Guess what the Wikipedia says about “Amorica!” Amorica was originally a fabled continent in ancient Greek myth. The Greeks believed it to be a paradise across the western ocean where some Greeks lived and intermarried with the natives. The Phoenicians also wrote of such a place. Later, the Romans believed this to be the island of Britain. (see Armorica) After that, the southern part of the British island was renamed Britannica, or Britain after the Briton tribes living there. Only Scotland was named Amorica then. The name faded when the Scots renamed it Scotland. America may have been named after the fabled continent of Greek myth, rather than after Amerigo Vespucci.  (Wikipedia@ This author has had this understanding for quite some time, but now it is posted on the internet for all to see. (Also see article on “Armorica” on Wikipedia.)

  So it is basically easy to recognize who Jewish Israel is. But Yahweh has hidden Ephraim Israel among the nations. He cast the northern ten tribes of the kingdom of Israel under rulership of the Ephraimite kings out of the land because of their unrepentant Baal worship. He eventually cast the southern kingdom of Judah Israel out of the land also because they saw what happened to the northern kingdom of Israel and still turned to worship Baal and the worship of other deities of the nations of the world. Actually, Judah Israel has been overthrown and cast out of the land twice, once by Babylon and once by Rome.


     A Karaite Jew named Nehemia Gordon has recently forwarded an article concerning the tactics of Hezbollah. He wrote: “In the year 2000, Hassan Nasrallah – the head of Hizbollah – gave a victory speech at Bint Jbel after he succeeded in driving the Israeli army out of southern Lebanon. In that infamous speech Nasrallah said that as a democracy Israel was inherently weak and would never be able to withstand any sustained attack on her civilians. He described Israel as a “spider-web” which could be destroyed with one fell swoop. Since 2000 Hizbollah has been amassing an arsenal of over 12,000 rockets and building fortresses in the mountains of southern Lebanon preparing for the war they are now fighting. A few days ago Nasrallah gave another speech in which he admitted that Hizbollah was planning on starting a war with Israel in September or October this year, but Israel forced Hizbollah to start the war before they were fully prepared. The current fighting erupted when Hizbollah launched a cross-border raid into northern Israel, capturing two Israeli soldiers and killing several others.

  The Hizbollah cross-border raid was timed to correspond with the G-8 summit, which was scheduled to talk about imposing sanctions on Iran to prevent that country from building nuclear weapons. Iran, which funds, arms, and controls Hizbollah sent orders to create a distraction that would prevent the G-8 from talking about the nuclear issue. They did not expect that Israel would actually defend itself but when it did they decided to open their planned rocket offensive on Israel several months early.

  The “spider-web” is holding out. Israeli democracy has not caved under Hizbollah pressure, despite over two weeks of sustained rocket attacks on our civilians. If Israel trusts in YHWH, then we will overcome any enemy that stands against us. However, I fear Israel is putting too much trust in foreign powers. Every night the political pundits murmur that we can only continue to defend ourselves as long as world public opinion remains on our side. Israeli army spokesmen repeatedly tell the people not to worry because the United States and Europe support Israel’s right to defend itself.

  This is the same mistake that our ancestors made thousands of years ago. The prophets repeatedly warn us not to trust in foreign nations but to trust in YHWH. When Assyria and later Babylonia threatened the kingdom of Judah our ancestors turned to Egypt for support, rather than turning to YHWH. Isaiah 36:6 calls Egypt “the staff of splintered reed…that when a person leans on it, it pierces his palm and punctures it. It appears trustworthy but when you rely on it you get hurt. What will happen in two weeks when the missiles are still flying and world public opinion turns against us? Will we have to get used to regular missile attacks just as we have gotten used to regular terror attacks? Or will we trust in YHWH and defeat our enemies?

  “Do not trust in nobles or humans for there is no salvation in them. Their spirit goes out and returns to the ground and on that day their plans are lost. Happy is he who the El of Jacob is his helper and whose hope is in YHWH his Elohim,” Psa. 146:3-5.” (End of letter.)

  We all know that there is a country in today’s world called or named “Egypt.” But there is a hidden Egypt! Where is that Egypt?

  Our one dollar bill declares to us that our money is the payment of the Egypt! The Masonic symbols of the Great Pyramid of Egypt is on the back with the all seeing eye of the ancient Egyptian sun-god Horus hovering over it! At the bottom of the seal there are the Latin words NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM. NOVUS = NEW; ORDO = ORDER; SECLORUM = SECULAR or AGE. It has been translated to mean “New age order,” or “New order of the age,” or “New secular order,” or New World Order.”

  At the top of the seal are the words ANNUIT COEPTIS. Our word “annuity” (payment) is directly associated with the word Annuit. COEPTIS is the ancient rendering for EGYPT! Thus, “Annuit Coeptis” would mean “PAYMENT OF EGYPT!”

  Our Constitution was originally supposed to be established on the Word of Yahweh. To secularize something means “to convert from ecclesiastical or religious to civil or lay use, ownership, or control; to make worldly, to lift the monastic restrictions from (a member of the clergy).”

  It was written in our constitution that our government was to print our money. This constitutional right was sold out to the “International Bankers” by President Woodrow Wilson and the congress in 1913.

  Things seemed to rock along quite well for quite some time, but in the thirties the bankers withheld the money which brought about the “Great Depression.” A “NEW DEAL” was made by the Franklin Delano Roosevelt administration wherein America was declared to be bankrupt, thus our nation, land, animals and people were sold out to the bankers.

  Israel went down into Egypt and subsequently was sold into slavery. Through a very clandestine conspiracy, American Israel has been sold into slavery, which is announced on the back of our dollar bill. History repeats itself.

  Many of our own allies have learned and are learning that for them to lean on America (modern-day spiritual Egypt), the prophecy of Isa. 36:6 is fulfilled.


     Just as the northern kingdom of Israel has been hidden among the nations, so has the overall multitudes of Esau. Jeremiah proclaims, “But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is spoiled, and his brethren, and his neighbours, and he is not,” 49:10. So just who is Esau? The Encyclopedia Judaica reveals that Rome was known as Esau, Edom, Amalek, Seir and Tyre. However, even though we know where Old Rome is in today’s world, it isn’t commonly known that Rome was divided into three city kingdoms, that is; Old Rome in the Latin Kingdom, the second Rome or Roma Nova (New Rome) in Constantinople (which was Greek in nature), anciently known as Byzantium, and the Third Rome, which was none other than Moscow, Russia!

  Let’s see what Ezekiel has to say about these end times, “Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it, And say unto it, Thus saith the Sovereign Yahweh; Behold, O mount Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make thee most desolate. I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and thou shalt know that I am Yahweh. Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end: Therefore, as I live, saith the Sovereign Yahweh, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee. Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth. And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in thy hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that are slain with the sword. I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall not return: and ye shall know that I am Yahweh. Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas Yahweh was there: Therefore, as I live, saith the Sovereign Yahweh, I will even do according to thine anger, and according to thine envy which thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I will make myself known among them, when I have judged thee. And thou shalt know that I am Yahweh, and that I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to consume. Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and have multiplied your words against me: I have heard them. Thus saith the Sovereign Yahweh; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate. As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee: thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even all of it: and they shall know that I am Yahweh,” Ez. 35:1-15.

  Esau has hated Israel with a perpetual hatred. Even though Esau may not realize that America is Israel, there is a spirit that he is subject to, which causes him to be Israel’s mortal enemy. Remember that Esau and Jacob were twins. Before they were born, there was a spirit that caused them to struggle in the womb to be the firstborn. While Esau was the firstborn, he eventually sold his birthright to Jacob which greatly displeased Yahweh.

  There are two twin nations in the world today, specifically America (Jacob) and Russia (Esau/Edom/Amalek) who are at odds with each other and no matter what appears on the surface, behind the scenes there is all sorts of intrigue, conspiracy, and under-handed tactics going on.

  Esau and his cohorts desire modern day Israel and America for his own inheritance. As you read the press, and listen and view the media, notice how slanted it is against Israel and America.


     Rome was the fourth kingdom of Daniel chapters two and seven. The spiritual nature of both kingdoms is revealed in the metal of chapter two and the indeterminate, but terrible beast of chapter seven. In Daniel chapter two the kingdom is first described as a kingdom of “iron.” The word “iron” in Hebrew is “barzel.” In Aramaic it is “parzel.”

  Barzel,” through an in-depth study of the Hebrew, is a combination of two Hebrew words “bar” and “zalal.” “Bar” is another modern-day Hebrew word for “son.” “Zalal” is defined as, to shake, to quake, fig. to be loose morally, worthless or prodigal! (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance)

  Notice that “zalal” means to be “loose morally,” “worthless,” and “prodigal.” This is certainly a viable description of men and the kingdoms of men in these last days, especially in the habitations of Esau. Esau is spoken of with disdain in the book of Hebrews chapter 12, verse 16. He is called a “fornicator” and “profane” person. The word “fornicator” is translated from the Greek word “pornos,” which is defined as, a (male) prostitute (as venal), i.e. (by analogy) a debauchee (libertine). In other words, a very loose and immoral person!

  “Profane” comes from the Greek word “bebelos,” which Strong’s defines as, from the base of 939 and belos (a threshold); accessible (as by crossing the door-way), i.e. (by implication, of Jewish notions) heathenish, wicked. #939 is the Greek word basis, which is defined as, from baino (to walk); a pace ("base"), i.e. (by implication) the foot.

  This simply can’t just be a coincidence that the word FOOT is referred to here, while the Latin kingdom of Italy (from whence comes Rome) is also in the form of a FOOT or BOOT, and the final kingdom in Daniel’s prophecy has to do with the legs, FEET, and toes! Whether you are a believer, an atheist or whatever, I am here to tell you that we are created by an awesomely great intelligence, which not only sustains us, but has the power to foretell, prophesy events and bring them about! If you are an evolutionary atheist, you need to begin to take a real hard look at what is transpiring in this world, as well as the miracle of your own existence and the existence of creation, turn your heart away from the foolishness of unbelief and begin to seek out your Creator with all of your heart! You don’t have much time left. Atheism is a doctrine of Amalek, a descendant of Esau.


     In Rabbinic literature, Rome is Esau, as well as Seir. In the Qodesh Scriptures (Holy Scriptures), Esau is Seir. Yahweh told Israel, “I have given mount Seir unto Esau for a possession,” Dt. 2:5 (last part). In Genesis chapter 36 we read, “Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom. And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir,” vv. 8-9.

  Interestingly, the Hebrew word “Seir” is #8165 in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance and is defined as, formed like 8163; rough; Seir, a mountain of Idumaea and its aboriginal occupants, also one in Palestine. Seir is the “proper noun.” The “common noun” from whence the “proper noun” is derived is almost the same word. It is #8163 and is the word sair, which is defined as, shaggy; as noun, a he-goat; by analogy, a faun. But when it is translated into the English Scriptures, it is translated as, devil, goat, hairy, kid, rough, satyr.

  In the book of Revelation chapter 13, there is a beast that rises up out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns with ten crowns on his horns (v.1). Upon his heads are the  names of blasphemy. (“Name” should be plural according to The Interlinear Bible.) This beast is a composite of the kingdoms that preceded it. Babylon had the qualities of a lion (Dan. 7:4), Persia had the qualities of a bear (Dan. 7:5), and Greece/Macedonia had the qualities of a leopard (Dan. 7:6). Rome is the dreadful, terrible and exceedingly strong beast (Dan. 7:7-8). The dragon (Satan the devil) gives this composite beast his power, seat and great authority. (Rev. 13:2)

  Going back to Gen. 36, we can look at these names and words utilized in order to come to some deductions. Esau is taken from a Hebrew word meaning “workman.” Edom means “red.” A mount is spiritual language for a kingdom, country or government. Seir means devil, goat, hairy, faun, satyr, etc. We also see in Hebrews 12 that the word “bebelos” (profane) has to do with “heathenism” and “wickedness.”

  Most of us understand where the old kingdom of Rome is in today’s world. But many have forgotten that the power and government of Rome was transferred to Roma Nova, New Rome or Constantinople by Constantine called the Great (330 CE). After Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks in 1453 CE, the power of the eastern half of the Roman government was transferred to Moscow, Russia being given into the hand of the Czars or Tsars. Moscow became known in the annals of history as the Third Rome!

  One of the key Hebrew words for “wicked” is “rasha.” Does this sound like Russia? Russia was known for hundreds of years to be the land of the TSAR. In Hebrew, tsar means enemy, foe, trial, trouble, tribulation, affliction, etc. In these latter days, the government of the Tsar was overthrown and another Edomite element took over the kingdom or country. These have to be the descendants of Amalek. You see, Amalek attacked Israel in the wilderness because Amalek didn’t fear Elohim (Dt. 25:18). Atheistic Communists have taken over the kingdom of Russia in these latter days. In other words, they fear not Elohim. They have also embraced the Communistic, socialistic, humanistic doctrine, which causes them to be called “Reds!” Edom means Red, for which he was named because he sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of red soup (Gen. 25:29-30). What goes around comes around because Marx and Engels were said to be Jewish, which would make them descendants of Jacob. They sold Esau’s modern day descendants the delicious “red” food called “Communism!”

  Esau means “workman.” The ruling Communist party is said to be governed by the “proletariat” which means “workman.” One of the Scriptural epithets for Esau is “Dumah.” One of the Russian parliaments is called the Duma!

  Therefore, going back to the Scriptures quoted in Genesis 36:8-9, we can now substitute some words, which might shed more light. “Thus dwelt Esau (the workmen) in mount (the country, kingdom, government) Seir (the devil, goat, satyr). And these are the generations of Esau (the workman/proletariat) the father of the Edomites (Reds) in mount (the kingdom, country, government) Seir (the devil, goat, satyr).”

The book of Leviticus, chapter 16 reveals an ancient ritual that was performed on behalf of Israel. Two kids of the goats were taken from the flocks to be presented before Yahweh. One was to be slaughtered, while the other was released alive to go into the wilderness alive bearing the sins of the people. Many think that this goat is a type of Yahshua in His capacity to take away our sins, but is this really the case? Let’s look into this ritual to see if we can understand what this goat typifies.

By Jerry Healan

Yahweh commanded the Levitical High Priest Aaron to, “…take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering. And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house. And he shall take the two goats, and present them before Yahweh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for Yahweh, and the other lot for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Yahweh’s lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before Yahweh, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness,” Lev. 16:5-10.

  After Aaron offered the bullock for himself and his own family, he was to, “…kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat: And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness. And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel. And he shall go out unto the altar that is before Yahweh, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about. And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel,” vv. 15-19.


    The book of Hebrews informs us, “Now when these things were thus ordained (the tabernacle, its appurtenances, the priesthood, etc.), the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of Yahweh. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Spirit this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation,” Heb. 9:6-10.

  The Greek word for “figure” is parabole, which is translated elsewhere as “parable!” Yahshua utilized parables in order to keep the understanding of His words hidden from all but His disciples, “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand,” Mt. 13:10-13.

  Even Aaron’s entrance into the Holy of Holies once a year with the atoning blood of the bullock and the goat was a parable to keep the people blinded as to what they truly represented. Notice that the great overall preponderance of Israel was blinded, “Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, Yahweh hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? Yahweh forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy,” Ro. 11:5-11.

  Paul goes on to say that the overall preponderance of Israel was blinded so that the rest of mankind, the non-Hebrews, might also be saved. Do you understand this? Yahweh called His People Israel His sheep. Sheep were sacrificial animals. Israel was sacrificed for the rest of the world. But Yahshua is the ultimate sacrifice because He is the True Shepherd and the Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. (Jn. 10)


    The High Priest was to cast lots to see which goat was to be sacrificed and which was to be let go alive into the wilderness. Understand this; the choice belonged to Yahweh alone. Man’s choice can’t be trusted. Adam, the father of all mankind, including Israel, made the wrong choice in the Garden of Eden setting the stage for his descendants to follow in his footsteps. The Scriptures reveal that Eve thought that Cain was the promised seed (Gen. 4) while rejecting Abel giving him a name which meant to be transitory, vain.

  The descendants of Adam have chosen Nimrod as their savior after the flood. Babylon worshipped Marduk and Bel, both being Cain and one of his descendants. The Persians worshipped Mithras and Zoroaster (Adam and the seed of Eve), The Greeks worshipped Zeus, the Romans Jupiter, the Canaanites worshipped Ba’al (the same deity as the Bel of Babylon. The worship of these deities has been syncretized into man’s religions in today’s world (including Christianity).

  One lot was for Yahweh and the other for Azazel (Scapegoat). The kid of the goats upon which Yahweh’s lot fell was to be sacrificed for a sin offering. His blood was to be taken first into the Holy of Holies and sprinkled upon the mercy seat. Then the items of the sanctuary were to be purified and finally the High Priest would come forth from the tabernacle in order to sprinkle the blood upon the altar of sacrifice. The blood of this goat was sprinkled upon these items in order to make an atonement and cleanse them from the sins, the failures of the children of Israel, “Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat: And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness. And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel. And he shall go out unto the altar that is before Yahweh, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about. And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel,” Lev. 16:15-19.


     This kid of the goats represented Yahshua in His capacity of being our sin offering and our atonement, “Therefore if any man be in the Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of Yahweh, who hath reconciled us to himself by Yahshua the Messiah, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that Yahweh was in the Messiah, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for the Messiah, as though Yahweh did beseech you by us: we pray you in the Messiah's stead, be ye reconciled to Yahweh. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of Yahweh in him,” 2 Cor. 5:17-21.

  The Hebrew word for “atonement” and “reconcile” is the same word! Yahweh reconciles, atones us to Himself through Yahshua the Messiah. In verse 21, the words that I have emboldened can also be read as, “He hath made Him to be a sin offering for us.” (According to the Companion Bible notes.)

  After Yahshua offered the acceptable atoning sacrifice for Israel’s and all mankind’s transgressions, He ascended into the heavens in order to sprinkle the true heavenly mercy seat of which the earthly mercy seat was just a type, a parable of., “Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which Yahweh pitched, and not man. For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of Yahweh when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount. But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises,” Heb. 8:1-6.

  Notice the words utilized here. The Levitical priesthood, its tabernacle, temple, and sacrifices were only examples, shadows and patterns of the true heavenly tabernacle that Yahweh pitched. There is much to be gleaned from this, but that is not the purpose of this article at this time.

  There is one question that I would like to ask and answer quickly in this treatise, however. Since the statement is made “For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law…,” Would Yahshua serve in His capacity as the heavenly High Priest after the order of Melchizedek if and when He comes back to this earth? Most certainly! You see, there is no longer a temple at Jerusalem, neither is there a Levitical priesthood that is actively offering sacrifices and offerings today. There may be a group that is prepared to do so, but unless Yahweh Himself issues the edict to rebuild a temple, which was done in Solomon’s day and also in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah, then all man is doing is once again taking matters into his own hands, which are not acceptable to Yahweh.


    We who know the truth of the matter should greatly rejoice that Yahshua has ascended into the heavens as our Heavenly High Priest, having offered the only acceptable atoning sacrifice. He is in heaven today, still in the process of making atonement for Israel and mankind.

  Yahshua told the people of His day, “Then said Yahshua unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come. Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles? What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?” Jn. 7:33-36. “Then said Yahshua again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come,” Jn. 8:21.

  Yahshua told His own disciples, “Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards,” Jn. 13:33-36.

  Yahweh’s atonement has yet to be finalized and completed for the book of Revelation declares, “And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of Yahweh, who liveth for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of Yahweh, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled,” Rev. 15:5-8.

  Notice that the temple was filled with smoke. The Levitical High Priest of old had to take a censor with coals and incense from the altar of incense in order to make a cloud of smoke which covered the ark and prevented the priest from looking upon Yahweh and perishing.


     The High Priest would return from the tabernacle taking the blood of the goat of sacrifice, as well as the blood of the bullock that he sacrificed for himself and his own household, applying it to the four horns of the altar seven times. The altar had four horns, one for each direction of the earth, north, south, east and west.

  Yahweh had scattered His people Israel to the four corners of the earth because of their sins that they had, have and are committing in these last days. The application of this blood was for the purpose of cleansing the altar. (Lev. 16:18-19)

  Remember that the purpose for this ritual is a parable, which purposely blinds not only the people of the world, the Gentiles or non-Hebrews, but even the Hebrews, the Israelites themselves.

  The sprinkling of the blood on the horns of the altar, the place of sacrifice, which took place in Jerusalem, was for cleansing. Seven last plagues must be poured out upon the beast and his kingdom before Yahshua returns to make atonement for the place of sacrifice (Jerusalem) and gather His people unto Himself. Thus, in these last days, Yahweh is bringing about the gathering of the armies of the nations of the world to the Middle East.

  This gathering of the armies of the nations to the Jerusalem area will set up the conditions for the intervention of Yahweh in the affairs of this world and also Israel. The Scriptures speak of this great battle as the battle of the great day of Yahweh. It is the battle known as Armageddon (Har Megiddon), or Jezreel.

  The pouring out of the seven last plagues will be induced upon the beast (Rome) and his armies and peoples. These seven last plagues will completely destroy the beast and his powers. It will cleanse the Jerusalem area making the way possible for Yahshua, the King of Kings, to establish His glorious kingdom of heaven on this earth.


    Finally, the live goat is brought, “And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat: And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness,” Lev. 16:20-22.

  Many people believe that this goat is also a type of Yahshua the Messiah, but let’s look into the Hebrew term for this goat to see if we can identify it/him more closely.

  The English term for this goat is “scapegoat.” The Hebrew term is azazel. The word azazel is defined as “goat of departure.” It is shown in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance to be a combination of two Hebrew words, az and azal. Az is defined as; from 5810, a she-goat (as strong), but masculine in plural (which also is used ellipt. for goat's hair). Since this is a male goat and not a female, we must go to the root word to get the meaning. The primitive root word is #5810, azaz, which is defined as; a primitive root; to be stout (literally or figuratively). It is generally translated as; harden, impudent, prevail, strengthen (self), be strong.

  Azal is the second Hebrew word involved in this word azazel. It is defined as; a primitive root; to go away, hence, to disappear. It is generally translated as; fail, gad about, go to and fro, be gone (spent).

  Who is defined in the Scriptures as gadding about, going to and fro? Now there was a day when the sons of Elohim came to present themselves before Yahweh, and Satan came also among them. And Yahweh said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it,” Job. 1:6-7.

  “Again there was a day when the sons of Elohim came to present themselves before Yahweh, and Satan came also among them to present himself before Yahweh. And Yahweh said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered Yahweh, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it,” Job. 2:1-2.

  Satan is the one who is hardened, impudent, seeks to prevail, and strengthens himself (the definitions for azaz). He is the one who gads about, going to and fro and up and down in the earth (the definition for azal). The definitions of the word azazel, azaz and azal do not in any way represent the character of Yahshua the Messiah. they are, however, very definitive of Satan the devil.


     The Prophet Zechariah is shown a vision that is most important for us to understand, “And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of Yahweh, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him,” Zech. 3:1.

  This High Priest is a type of the Heavenly High Priest Yahshua the Messiah after the order of Melchisedek. Yahshua the High Priest is told that he and his companions mentioned in this chapter are “men wondered at.” (v. 8) “Wondered at” is translated from the Hebrew word mowpheth. It also can be translated as “sign, token, miracle, omen, etc.” These men are all signs, tokens, omens or symbols. In other words, they are types, shadows, patterns of heavenly things.

  Notice that in verse one, Satan is resisting Yahshua the High Priest. The Hebrew word for “resist” is satan!

  What is Yahshua’s condition? “Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel,” Zech. 3:3. “Filthy” comes from the Hebrew word tsowayim, which is defined as; soiled (as if excrementitious)! Notice that! His clothing is soiled with excrement or dung!

  The Prophet Malachi decrees against the priesthood that he would wipe dung on their faces because they failed to remain faithful to Yahweh’s service (Mal. 2:3). This is because they turned to idolatry, which is as dung to Yahweh.

  Zechariah reveals that the only High Priest Who will have the power to cleanse the priesthood is named “Yahshua ben Josedech!” “Josedech” means “The Righteous Yahweh!” It was said of Yahshua the Messiah of Nazareth, “This is My Beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased,” Mt. 3:17. Yahshua, the Son of Yahweh, will be able to cleanse the heavens and the earth, restoring them to the intended purity. But in the meantime, while Yahshua has been in the mount, in heaven, Satan has resisted (satanized) Him by causing His people to turn to idolatry!

  Satan is rebuked and Yahshua is given clean clothing, “And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment,” Zech. 3:4.

  “Change of raiment” is translated by the J. P. Green Interlinear Bible as “festal garments.” Satan has clothed Yahshua with the feast days of idolatry, to wit; Sunday worship, Easter and Christmas. The Sabbath and annual holydays commanded by Yahweh are the festal garments that Yahshua is to be clothed. They depict Yahweh’s true plan of salvation.

 He also must have His headdress replaced (Zech. 3:5). The headdress of the High Priest had a blue ribbon with the words “Qodesh La Yahweh” inscribed in gold thereon. Satan has caused the Heavenly Father’s name to be polluted, changed to idolatrous names and titles, and forgotten among the children of Israel.

  Yahshua and Satan standing before the angel of Yahweh is a type of the two kids of the goats standing before Yahweh. Before everything can be cleansed, the goat for Yahweh had to be sacrificed. Yahshua is that sacrifice. He is now in the heavens making atonement.


     According to Heb. 9:10, the parables of the tabernacle, temple, priesthood and their carnal ordinances of washings and sacrifices were given to the children of Israel until the TIME OF REFORMATION. Paul says, “Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away,” 1 Cor. 13:8-10.

  Prophecies fail or are done away when they are completed or fulfilled. In other words, the priesthood and offerings were prophecies that were to be fulfilled. Yahshua came to fulfill them and once fulfilled the priesthood and sacrifices were done away.

  According to the writings of the New Testament Assembly, two men were presented for the sacrifice, Yahshua and Barabbas. Yahshua is the “only begotten Son of Yahweh,” but the name Barabbas means “son of the father.”

  Barabbas was incarcerated for murder, sedition and robbery. (Mk. 15:6-7; Lk. 23:19; Jn. 18:40; Acts 3:14). Satan was a murderer from the beginning (Jn. 8:44). Sedition is rebellion against government. Satan rebelled against Yahweh’s government causing a third of the angels to follow him in his sedition (Rev. 12:4). He seeks to rob Yahweh of the majesty due Him, applying it to himself.

  Yahshua is the One Who is to be sacrificed for Yahweh so that His shed blood might atone all iniquity. Barabbas, a representative for Azazel, Satan, is let go alive.


     When the Levitical High Priest finished cleansing the Holy of Holies and the sanctuary of the tabernacle, he returned to also cleanse the altar, the place of sacrifice (Lev. 16:17-18), “And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat: And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness,” Lev. 16:20-22.

  Yahshua is the High Priest, the sacrifice and the King of Kings. When He returns, He will cleanse Jerusalem (the place of sacrifice) of all her filthiness, and He will commence to gather His people from the four corners of the earth where they have been scattered because of their iniquities. He will cleanse them with His atoning blood. He will then take those iniquities and transgressions, placing them upon the head of he who initiated it all in the beginning and he (Satan) will be banished alive to the abyss, a place not inhabited or where there is no other living thing, to wit, the deepest darkest grave, for a thousand years. (Rev. 20:1-3).

  The earth will then bring forth the fruits of peace and righteousness that has not been experienced since before the seduction in the Garden of Eden. These are the promises of Yahweh recorded in His Word, which is sure and will come about. HalleluYah!!!!!
