7. Revelation 7. [The Few & the Many] (First 3.5 Years)
After these things I saw four malakim standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth , on the sea , or on any tree . Then I saw another Malak ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Elohim. And he cried with a loud voice to the four malakim to whom it was granted to harm the earth  and the sea , saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees  till we have sealed the servants of our Elohim on their foreheads.”
7.1. The Few. [Rev.7:1-8]
Just as Yahuchanan saw 4 Kerubim around Yahweh’s throne, in the previous verses we can see that there are 4 Malakim standing at the 4 corners of the Earth. In the same way that the Almighty is in the middle of the Kerubim, another Malak appears from the east in their midst, as the Sun of Righteousness, with the Seal of Yahweh; that is, Mikael as the Melek HaGadol, since the King is the one who wears the signet ring, as Haggai prophesied when referring to Zerubbabel, who represents the Last.
‘In that day,’ says Yahweh of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel [Born in Confusion] My servant, the son of Shealtiel [Asked of Elohim],’ says Yahweh, ‘and will make you like a signet ring; for I have chosen you,’ says Yahweh of hosts.”
This Malak rose from the East, which refers to the fact that he will manifest as the Sun of Justice (Mal.4:2). The Good News and the Name, with which the Last will seal the elect, comes from the East, since Salvation comes from the Yahudim and Yahushua was manifested only in Yisrael during his first coming (Jn.4:22, Mt.15:24). Now, Yahweh promised that on His second coming He would manifest from the West, for both manifestations to cover from where the Sun rises (1st), to where it sets (2nd), which is why He is represented by Zerubbabel, who was born in Babylon (Is.4:6, 43:5, 59:19; Mal.1:11; Psa.50:1, 113:3).
So shall they fear
The Name of Yahweh from the West,
And His Honor from the rising of the Sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit [רוח] of Yahweh will lift up a standard against him.
The Hebrew word רוח is commonly translated as “Wind” or “Breath”, and it is exactly the same word that is translated as Spirit (Ruach), so what is described in the first verses of this chapter can be understood as Spirits (Winds) that influence the world, which will be stopped so that they don’t blow humanity away, who are represented by the Sea, the Earth and the Trees. All of this connects with the 3rd Seal, in which Spiritual Hunger will be unleashed, because no spirit will bring revelation to man, except for the testimony of the Witness like Moshe, who will feed the world as Yosef did in Egypt, which is related to the fact that the 2 Witnesses have the authority to stop the rain from falling during the time of their testimony (Gn.42, Rv.11.6).
Then Pharaoh said to Yoseph, “Inasmuch as Elohim has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.” And Pharaoh said to Yoseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Yoseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” [אברך] So he set him over all the land of Egypt. Pharaoh also said to Yoseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” And Pharaoh called Yoseph’s name Zaphnath-Paaneah [צפנתפענח]. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Yoseph went out over all the land of Egypt.
Here we find another reference to the Last, who is a descendant of Yosef and manifests among the nations, this time represented by Egypt, and receives the ring to govern and feed the inhabitants of the earth through his word (Yahushua). The fine linen hints to the fact that he comes as the Bridegroom of the Congregation, which is represented by Asenat. Furthermore, the Last will receive a new name, as did Yosef, who received an extra letter in his name, from Yahweh, to become Yahusef (Ps.81:5), in addition to the name given to him by Pharaoh, Tzefanat-Paneaj (Treasure of the Exalted Rest | Who Reveals what’s Hidden).
Therefore, it is the Last who has the Seal of the Living Mighty One and who will seal the Chosen, so that they are not wounded by the malakim who are allowed to harm the nations (Sea) and the rebellious believers (Earth), therefore they are ordered not to touch either the sea (Nations), the Earth (Believers), or the Trees (Chosen), until the Chosen are sealed on their foreheads, so that the malakim can differentiate them and therefore do no harm to them.
And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Yisrael [Who will rule as Elohim] were sealed:
of the tribe of Yahudáh [Praise of Yahweh] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Reuben [Behold the Son] twelve thousand were [a]sealed;
of the tribe of Gad [Fortune] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Asher [Happy] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Neftali [My Strife] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Menashe [Who causes to Forget] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Shimon [Heard] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Levi [Adhered | Crown] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Yisakar [Reward] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Zebulun [Exalted Place] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of Yahusef [Yahweh will Add] twelve thousand were sealed;
of the tribe of BenYamin [Son of my Right Hand | Son of Days] twelve thousand were sealed.
In the previous verses, the exact number of people who will be sealed (144,000) is mentioned; however, the way in which Scripture counts people is according to the heads of the household; therefore, women and children are not counted, since they represent the body and the limbs. In Exodus, Scripture relates that 600,000 came out of Egypt, which refers only to men, as can be verified in the Jewish tradition. This can be seen more clearly through a couple miracles performed by Yahushua, when is mentioned that he fed a group of 5,000 people and then 4,000, since it is estimated that on both occasions they would have actually been more than 20,000 people.
Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
Now those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.
So, in simple terms, if a family is chosen it would count as one, through the head of the household, even if there were ten children, since to the Almighty the family is one. Regarding this detail, some will argue that in the case of the 144,000 it does not apply, for the simple fact that in Revelation 14 they are described as virgins, by which they deduce, those who interpret according to the letter, that they would be single and childless. However, this is not the point being revealed when using the word “virgin”, but the spiritual aspect, which will be explained in depth in that same chapter.
A simple example of this is the fact that Miriam gave birth to her son Yahushua while she was a virgin, in addition to the fact that it is written that in Yahushua there is no man or woman; therefore, it is the spiritual aspect that counts. That is, any person, once they accept and follow Mashiach, spiritually counts as a virgin man before Yahweh, since the chosen congregation is the body of Mashiach and He is a virgin man.
The identity of the 144,000 is a subject in which the majority of believers agree on a wrong interpretation, because they do not understand the symbolism, for not searching the Scriptures, in addition to the fact that its true interpretation is not compatible with their doctrine of the Rapture, believed by most to happen before the Tribulation, which really doesn't make any sense for various reasons, which will also be mentioned in chapter 14.
Yisrael as a people represents a body, just as the chosen Congregation is the spiritual temple, the body of Yahushua.
1 Corinthians 12:27
Now you are the body of Mashiach, and members individually.
Each tribe represents a part of that body, just as each tribe is made up of many people with different functions, in the same way that each part of the body is made up of different components, such as flesh, skin, blood, nails, hair, etc. The Yisrael mentioned in this chapter is the Spiritual, the true, the one that Yahushua came to form through his death and resurrection. (Eph.2:15)
1 Corinthians 12:18-20
But now Yahweh has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.
It is necessary to understand that with the sacrifice and resurrection of Yahushua, there was a new beginning in which everything that is written, which happened literally in the Old Testament, still applies; however, now it is manifesting in a spiritual way and that is how it should be interpreted, which is why Yahushua is called the last Adam. (1Co.15:45)
For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Yahudi and Greek, for the same Sovereign [Yahu] over all is rich [shua] to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of Yahweh shall be saved.”
In the previous verse it is revealed that in Yahushua there is no difference between Yahudi and Greek; that is, between Yisraeli and Gentile, of those who believe and confess his Name. Therefore, if the Scripture says so explicitly, the opposite should not be interpreted at any time, since this again raises the dividing wall between Gentiles and Yahudim, through an erroneous interpretation (Eph.2:14). Scripture clearly says that what Yahweh has joined together, let not man separate (Mr.10:9), which, despite being in the context of marriage, can be perfectly applied in this case.
Another important aspect is that through Yahushua, both the Gentiles and the Yahudim who accept the Messiah are adopted by the Father (Eph.1:4-6), this means that not only the Gentiles are adopted, as some Christians have interpreted and therefore conclude that the Jews are already children solely by their flesh, while Yahushua clearly said that to enter the Kingdom of the Almighty one must be born again (Jn.3:3-7), regardless of who the person is, he or she must be spiritually gestated during this life in order to become a spiritual Yahudi, upon receiving the new body, which will be the new birth (Is.66:8), since the flesh profits nothing (Jn.6:63), which is why those who are alive during the Harvest, even though they will not die, will have to be transformed. (1Co.15:52, Gl.3:27-29, Cl.3:9-11)
But it is not that the word of Yahweh has taken no effect. For they are not all Yisrael who are of Yisrael,
Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.
So you are not a descendant of Abraham by being so through the flesh, but through faith.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13
For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Mashiach. For by one Spirit we were all inmersed into one body—whether Yahudim or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.
7.1.1. The 12 Tribes.
- Yahudah (Praise of Yahweh) [Yahushua]
- Ruben (See the Son) [First]
- Gad (Fortune) [Forgiveness of Sins | Justification]
- Asher (Happy) [The Promise | Salvation]
- Neftali (My Strife) [with the Flesh]
- Menashe (He who causes to forget) [Sin, Pain, Tears]
- Shimon (He who is Heard) [The Intercessor]
- Levi (Crown - Adhered) [The Crown | He Who Unites]
- Yissachar (There’s Reward) [The Blessing | Double Portion]
- Zebulon (Exalted Habitation) [Spiritual Temple | New Yerushalaim]
- Yahusef (Yahweh will Add) [Prophet like Moshe]
- BenYamin (Son of the Right Hand | Son of Days) [Last]
The names of the Tribes that are mentioned in Revelation 7, as the Chosen, have great importance, for they can be interpreted as a message from the Almighty, through their meanings. Besides this, the absence of the names Efraim and Dan is notable.
The message can be understood in several ways, by putting the meanings of the names together. Here I present two examples:
Praise Yahweh, Behold, his son [Yahushua] brought Fortune and Happiness; and My Strife, He made me Forget It, since He Hears Me, so He Adhered a Crown to Me and Rewarded me with His Exalted Habitation, when He Added Me to the Son of His Right Hand [Mashiach].
The praise of Yahweh is that they See the Son [Yahushua], for Fortune and Happiness, My Strife, He made me Forget it, since He Heard me and Adorned me, Adhering His Reward, He made me His Exalted Room [2Ch.6: 2 , 1K.8: 13] and added his Son of the Right Hand [Last].
In itself, the order of the names of the tribes announce: the coming of the First, his son Yahushua to give himself up for our sins and fill us with blessing and joy, by giving us the triumph in every spiritual battle and making us forget sin and the desires of the flesh; and by answering our prayers, he united us to the reward and made us his Temple, to take us to His reality during the Wedding of the Lamb, to unite us with Mashiach.
It can also be interpreted that each name represents a specific characteristic that all the people of each Tribe share with each other, whether in their personality, as well as the position and function they will have in the Kingdom of Yahweh in eternity.
Now, regarding the two Tribes not mentioned in the list, there are several reasons why this happens, many that will be revealed in the future, but here are a few:
- Dan and Ephraim represent idolatry and rebellion.
- Dan did not take possession of his portion of Land in time (Jud.18:1).
- The False-Messiah, Son of Perdition and Traitor, comes from Dan.
- In a positive sense, Ephraim and Dan represent the 2 Witnesses, since even though they are leaders of the 144.000, unlike those mentioned in the list, both will have to die, as Revelation 11 declares, just like the many.
Ephraim connects with the Witness like Moshe, for the prophet promised by Yahweh would be from the Tribe of Ephraim, while the Witness like EliYahu connects with him because his ministry will be focused primarily on telling the Many [Ephraim] to repent of their rebellion.
On the other hand, Dan means Judgment, which represents the fact that through the testimony of the two witnesses judgment will be given, to condemn the wicked. Furthermore, the name Dan is connected with the name Daniel, and by taking the Old Testament and the New Testament, as representatives of the 2 Witnesses, Daniel, who wrote the equivalent of the book of Revelation in the TaNaKh, becomes a perfect mirror of the Witness like Eliyahu, who prepares the way and calls to repentance, while Yahuchanan, the Beloved (like David), who wrote the Revelation, would represent the Witness like Moshe, the Last.
Also, it is worth mentioning that Samson, who the Yahudim have seen as a reflection of Mashiach, is a descendant of Dan, tribe which is represented by the Serpent, which is why he also connects with the Witness like Moshe, as the prodigal son or the serpent that turns away from evil, since the Hebrew word Mashiach (358) has the same numerical value as the word Serpent (Nachash=358). This is the reason why in Judaism Mashiach is seen as the Nachash HaKodesh; like the rod of Moshe that became a Serpent, as a sign that the Almighty was with him, that is, a sign of His authority. Let us also remember that Yahushua HaMashiach told us that we must be wise as Serpents and innocent as Doves, which is perfectly manifested in Him. (Mt.10:16)
18.104.22.168. Lost Tribes.
Shortly after the people of Yisrael settled in the promised land, the kingdom was divided into two parts, known as the kingdom of Yahudah and the kingdom of Yisrael, made up of the two southern tribes and the ten northern tribes, respectively. The Assyrian empire deported the ten tribes of Yisrael, who ended up beeing scattered throughout all nations, mainly in an unknown land which would come to be known as America, as confirmed by Christopher Columbus, just like Yahweh had announced through his prophets and what is described in one of the books of Ezra. (2Ez.13:40-45)
In addition to this important event, years later a large number of Yahudim were exiled to Africa, others went to Spain, specifically Sepharad, as stated in the book of Obadiah(1:20). Eventually, these would also be scattered throughout America at different times, being sold as slaves, while others were transported by Christopher Columbus. This has resulted in a great difficulty when trying to clearly identify these tribes around the world, which has led many to believe that it is impossible to find people who kept their roots pure after millennia of living among the nations; however, Yahweh can do all things.
This particular point is enough for some to conclude that the tribes, mentioned in the list of Revelation 7, cannot be Jews of the flesh, but rather the spiritual Yahudim. In addition to all the verses already shown that confirm that this is the case, there are a few others that serve as confirmation of this particular matter.
1 Timothy 1:3-4
As I urged you when I went into Macedonia—remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than heavenly edification which is in faith.
But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless.
These verses confirm that in these end times we should not worry about genealogies, since the flesh is useless in regard to the world to come, since what matters is the spirit and the soul. The only reason why the flesh was important until a certain point, was because Yahushua had to be a descendant of King David, according to the flesh, in order to fulfill all the prophecies that speak of him, as it was confirmed by Scripture and even in the Temple when he was registered by Yosef and Miriam, until it was destroyed in the year 70, with it all the records of the genealogies of the Yahudim that were kept there. This resulted in the creation of the false tribe of the Khazars, who have come to be known as Jews, while most of the true Yisraelim are viewed by society as Gentiles, since they have been among the nations for centuries, after being forced to convert to Christianity.
Ephraim means: Doubly Fruitful, for it would be the tribe blessed with multiplication and prosperity; however, they could not handle the abundance they enjoyed, since they began to venerate the creation rather than the Creator who blessed them. They began to worship riches instead of Yahweh, which caused them to fall into all kinds of rebellious sins, since their gift of multiplication also manifested itself when they multiplied false doctrines, their idols and the altars for their false elohim (Hos.8:11, 12:1).
Ephraim is joined to idols, let him alone.
Ephraim [the Many] shall be desolate in the day of rebuke [The Great Tribulation]; among the tribes of Yisrael I make known what is true [Yahushua]. “The princes of Yahudah are like those who remove a landmark; I will pour out My wrath on them like water. Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, because he willingly walked by human precept.
The children of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle [They do not fight the Spiritual War]. They did not keep the covenant of Elohim [Yahushua]; they refused to walk in His Law [Torah | Commandments], and forgot His works and His wonders that He had shown them.
Moreover He rejected the tent of Joseph,
And did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,
The previous verse shows the connection that exists between Yahusef and Ephraim, as well as the fact that Ephraim represents the Many who are called but not chosen; that is, those who are justified but not saved, which means that they will have to die in the Great Tribulation, as prophesied by Hoshea (5:7), and then be resurrected upon entering the Kingdom. The house of Yosef refers to the inhabitants and servants in the Temple, not those who represent the Temple itself, who are the chosen few, who will be Kings and Priests, therefore the house (family) of Yosef, in this context, alludes to the tribe of Ephraim as the Many.
During the adoption of Ephraim and Menashe, sons of Yosef, Yaakov blessed Ephraim as the first-born, so his name is exchanged with that of Yosef through Scripture, who is also the second first-born of Yaakov, since he was the first son he had through Rachel, his 2nd wife, in addition to receiving the birthright from among the twelve, once Ruben lost it because of his sin. Yaakov himself was the second to come out of his mother's womb, but he took the blessing and bought Esau's birthright, just as Ephraim ended up receiving the birthright blessing, instead of Menashe who was actually born first.
In the blessing that Yaakov gives to the sons of Yosef (Gen.48) there is a clue that indicates that the Last One would come through Ephraim, while Menashe (מנשה), in this context, is a representation of Moshe (משה), who had not yet been sent into the world. The above is connected with several things that will be explained later, but mainly it is due to the similarity that exists between the two names, since Moshé (משה) is the seed (Nun | נ) hidden in the name Menashe (מנשה). Another reason is the connection between what was said to each one in the blessing, compared to what was said to Moshe when he reacted like Abraham in Lot's time.
I will strike them [as the Many] with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you [as the Last from Ephraim] a nation greater and mightier than they [meaning, the Few].”
With this verse in mind we can understand why in the list of the Chosen the name Yahusef is used instead of Ephraim, since it represents those of the tribe of Ephraim who stayed away from idolatry, those who did repent of their rebellion from among the Christians and confessed the name of the Messiah for salvation. This would also include the set-apart ones of the tribe of Dan, being purified through the name, since they also have a connection with the Last, who comes to make Judgment, just as Dan means Judge, in addition to the fact that Ephraim dwelt on Dan’s land.
But his father [Yaakov] refused and said, “I know, my son [Yahusef], I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother [Ephraim] shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations [מלא הגוים].”
In the verse above is the answer to a great mystery of Scripture mentioned later by the Apostle Paulus:
For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles [מלא הגוים] has come in.
The above connects the fullness of the Gentiles with the descendants of Ephraim and shows that in the same way that Ephraim was adopted by Yaakov, the Gentiles would be so in the future, when they believed in Mashiach and followed his commandments. It also clearly reveals how many of those who are called Gentiles nowadays are actually descendants of Yaakov through Yahusef. The set-apart ones who are chosen from among the descendants of Ephraim are identified as the tribe of Yahusef among those mentioned in the list of Revelation 7, which is related to the fact that the Leader, Melek HaGadol, is a descendant of Yahusef through Ephraim, according to the prophecy given to Moshe in Deuteronomy. A shadow of that promise manifested itself in the life of Hoshea BenNun, who, as a prophetic shadow, received the name Yahushua (Joshua) to fulfill his mission and represent the First and the Last as one.
22.214.171.124.1. A Prophet like Moshe.
“Yahweh your Elohim will raise up [יקים] for you a Prophet like me [Moshe] from your midst [Yisrael], from your brethren. Him you shall hear, according to all you desired of Yahweh your Elohim in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of Yahweh my Elohim, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’ “And Yahweh said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. I will raise up [יקים] for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words [Yahweh Yahushua] in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.
First, notice how the Yisraelim, out of fear of Yahweh, asked not to hear his Voice or see his Fire directly, which is why Yahweh promises to send a prophet like Moshe, specifically to fulfill these two roles, to be the vessel of his Voice on Earth and the Consuming Fire that brings judgment and wisdom in the end times as the Last, just like Yahushua, the First, is the Word of Yahweh and the Water of Life that brought mercy and the true instruction.
The Almighty says that He will put his Words in the Prophet that He would send, which means that he is not the Word, but the Voice in whom the Word is, as well as the Throne on which Yahweh rests. This is one of several keys through which the Spirit shows us that he is not speaking of Yahushua, the Messiah, as many tend to incorrectly interpret, but of the last manifestation of Yahweh, which has also been known as the Second Coming.
It is also important to mention, that Yahweh does not tell Moshe specifically that the Prophet He would send would be his descendant, or even from the Tribe of Levi like Moshe, but rather declares that he would rise from among his brothers in Yisrael. The words that Yahweh uses when saying this to Moshe give us a clue regarding the Tribe whence the prophet would come, since it connects him with Genesis 37, when Yahusef tells his brothers the dreams that Yahweh gave him.
There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose [קמה] and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.”
The verb: to raise up, which is used in both Deuteronomy and Genesis, is the Hebrew word Kum (קום), and it is due to this dream that Yahusef had, that it is interpreted that every time the same word appears in Scripture in a prophetic way, it makes direct reference to whom the Jews call “Mashiach BenYosef”, who is the descendant of Yahusef through Ephraim, who would later be known as: the Prophet like Moshe.
Another irrefutable proof that the Prophet like Moshe is not Yahushua, the Messiah, is found in the Good News of Yahuchanan, when we are shown that Scripture announced the coming of three specific people whom the Yahudim have been awaiting since Yahuchanan the Immerser (John the Baptist) revealed himself in Yahudah.
And they asked him, saying, “Why then do you immerse if you are not the Messiah, nor EliYahu, nor the Prophet?”
|Mashiach BenDavid||Yahuchanan the Immerser||Mashiach BenYahusef|
|Lawyer||2nd Witness||1st Witness|
It is written in the Torah that in order to execute any judgment, the testimony of two or three people is needed:
Deuteronomy 17:6 [19:15]
Whoever is deserving of death shall be put to death on the testimony of two or three witnesses; he shall not be put to death on the testimony of one witness.
Yahushua also said “till heaven and earth pass away, one Yud [י] or one Horn [ה] will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled” (Mt.5:17-18), which means that this verse must also be fulfilled. Said fulfillment will come through the sacrifice of three people who will die to honor Yahweh and thus be able to present themselves before Elohim as Witnesses. This means that the Almighty prophesied, through Deuteronomy, that not only Yahushua HaMashiach should come, but also EliYahu and the Prophet like Moshe, since according to the requirements of the Torah three Witnesses would have to appear for the Last Judgment to be executed after the Millennium (Rev.20:11-15), to condemn Yahushua's enemies, including Death itself.
The manifestation of these Witnesses began with the death of Yahushua, so EliYahu must return at the end of times to act as a Witness, together with the Last, since the first time that EliYahu manifested again, as Yahuchanan the Immerser, he died some time before Yahushua, to close the dispensation of the prophets before the sacrifice of Mashiach (Mt.11:11-14).
It is interesting that the verse says that “on the testimony of two or three witnesses”, since one of these is EliYahu and the other manifests as two different people, the First and the Last, so then they can be seen as two or three people, EliYahu and Mashiach (First and Last).
What happened approximately 2000 years ago with Yahushua and Yahuchanan in Yisrael, now, in these end times, will be repeated among the nations with the Witness like Moshe and the Witness like EliYahu respectively. Just as the people of Yisrael rejected Yahushua and Yahuchanan, so the nations will reject the Two Witnesses and in this way the sign of Yonah will be fulfilled in the First and the Last, the son of man.
As mentioned above, the clearest example of Mashiach, First and Last, is given in the person who became erroneously known as Joshua, whose birth name was Hoshea.
from the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea [Salvation] the son of Nun;
The meaning of Ephraim is: Doubly Fruitful; while Hoshea means: Salvation. On the other hand, in Aramaic, the name Nun means: Fish, a creature that represents multiplication and those who are chosen from the nations, since Yahushua HaMashiach made the apostles fishers of men, so men are represented by fish and this world would be the water from which they are drawn. Also, the Hebrew letter Nun [נ] represents the Heavenly Presence [Shekinah], the Ruach HaKodesh, the seed, descendant, recipient, the Kingdom, the heir to the throne, Prophet, Jubilee, Freedom, Faithfulness and Humility, as it is written of Moshe, who was the humblest man; therefore, the one who is sent like him, must also have said characteristics to become the Great King, just as the Nun is the heir to the Throne and this is the son of Nun.
Eventually, when the time comes for Moshe to be replaced by his successor, who would represent the prophet like him, for the people to finally enter the promised land, Yahweh changes, through Moshe, Hoshea’s name, just as He did with Abraham and Yisrael. In this case, Yahweh added to the name of Hoshea [הושע] the letter Yud [י] that he had taken from the name of the matriarch Sarai [שרי], when turning it into Sarah [שרה], and in this way he received the Name that in the future would be revealed as the name of the Messiah, Yahushua [יהושע]. Through this, Yahweh gives us a huge clue of who would be the one who would spiritually lead Yisrael to the promised land, the New Yerushalaim, as the First, by forgiving us of our sins, while the Last would manifest at the end of time to fulfill it physically, in the 2nd Exodus, when the chosen ones are harvested and taken to the prepared place, after being transformed when receiving their eternal bodies, their heavenly dwellings.
These are the names of the men whom Moshe sent to spy out the land. And Moshe called Hoshea [הושע] the son of Nun, Yahushua [יהושע].
Unlike Yahushua HaMashiach, whose Name was transmitted through the Malak Gabriel before his birth; the Last, like Hoshea, becomes the Prophet like Moshe, through the First, and thus his name is changed as Abram and Yaakov, who came to be called Abraham and Yisrael. A clear confirmation of how Yahushua BenNun represents the Witness like Moshe, is that the name is given to him when he is going to be sent as a witness to recognize the promised land, along with eleven others from each of the tribes, of which only two, Yahushua and Kalev, give a positive report through their faith. The above is a prophetic mirror of the two latter-day Witnesses. Interestingly enough, the name Yahushua is written in two different ways throughout Scripture, in order to represent the two manifestations, in addition to confirming its pronunciation:
|216 Times [# Value: Blessing, Lion, My Word]||Twice (Dt.3:21, Jud.2:7)|
The letter Vav [ו] represents a man, which is why the first version of the name, which only has one Vav, was how the Messiah appeared as the First; while the second version, with two Vavs, clearly represents the coming of the Last, like the Son of Man, who comes to confirm the covenant of the First in the 6th millennium, just as the second version has 6 letters. In the case of the Last, it does not mean that he will use the same name as the First, since he comes to give testimony of Yahushua, so if he used the same name he would give testimony of himself and therefore his testimony would be invalid, which is why he will receive the name until he is resurrected; however, while he fulfills his ministry on earth, Yahweh gives him another name, which is what Mashiach refers to in Revelation when mentioning his new name (Rv.3:12).
“And I commanded Yahushúa [יהושוע] at that time [the End],
saying, ‘Your eyes have seen [Witness] all that Yahweh your Elohim
has done to these two kings [the 2 Beasts | Samael & Heilel];
so will Yahweh do to all the kingdoms through which you pass.
The Last will manifest as a (Spiritual) Warrior, which is one of the reasons why Yahweh used the six-letter version in the previous verse, because of the message that he was conveying, in addition to mentioning the words “at that time”, that in a spiritual sense, unlike the historical one, represent the End of Times every time they appear in Scripture.
On the other hand, the book of Judges gives us, in a single verse, a perfect example of the representation of the First and the Last, through the two versions of the Name of the Messiah:
So the people served Yahweh all the days of Yahushua [יהושע], and all the days of the elders [Apostles] who outlived Yahushua [יהושוע], who had seen all the great works of Yahweh which He had done for Yisrael.
Just as in the previous verse, while Yahushua HaMashiach walked on Earth, those who believed him followed the true doctrine, even after he ascended they continued on the right track during the life of the Apostles, as the Elders of the Congregation; however, after them came the Apostasy (Rebellion) in which all kinds of false doctrines were created, until the Last manifests, as a Witness, to act in the Name of Yahweh Yahushua in favor of Yisrael, which will be when everything will resume to confirm the covenant that Yahushua HaMashiach made two thousand years ago.
Yahushua the son of Nun [son of Ephraim], who stands before you, he shall go in there. Encourage him, for he shall cause Yisrael to inherit it.
But command Yahushua, and encourage him and strengthen him; for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which you will see.’
Then Moshe went and spoke these words to all Yisrael. And he said to them: “I am one hundred and twenty years old today [rep. the last Jubilee]. I can no longer go out and come in. Also Yahweh has said to me, ‘You shall not cross over this Jordan.’ Yahweh your Elohim Himself crosses over before you; He will destroy these nations from before you, and you shall dispossess them. Yahushua himself crosses over before you, just as Yahweh has said.
Yahweh declared that man’s life would be 120 years (Gen.6:3), a number that represents the end of times, since the 120 years that Yahweh would give humanity to repent before the flood, in another level of interpretation reveals that humanity, in its current state, would only last 120 Jubilees from Adam, the first man, which turns out to be 6000 years (50x120), just as Elohim made the creation in 6 days, which also implies that there would be 6 millennia of history, since “with Adonay one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (Ps.90:4, 2Pe.3:8).
Therefore, with all of the above, we can conclude that there is a clear and important relationship between Yahusef and Efraim, where Yahusef represents the pure side, the separated Yahudi; while Ephraim the side that fell into the confusion of sin, the adopted Gentile.
Dan means: Judge. This tribe was blessed with the job of judging the people (Gn.49:16); however, similar to Heilel (Lucifer) who became the Accuser, the tribe took advantage of its power and authority, so this job was turned over to the chosen Congregation.
1 Corinthians 6:2
Do you not know that the Set-Apart [Chosen] ones will judge the world?
And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for [a]a thousand years.
In short, Jews who do not accept the Messiah at all are spiritual Gentiles; just as a Gentile who believes and confesses Yahushua as Sovereign is a spiritual Yahudi.
I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit is set-apart, the lump is also set-apart; and if the root is set-apart, so are the branches.
Yahushua is that root, who did not commit any sin in order to present us without blemish before the Father, through his sacrifice as the Lamb at the end of his manifestation as the Kohen Gadol (High Priest).
The plan of the Almighty, whose mercy surpasses our understanding, was to allow the temporary rebellion of the Yahudim in order to bring Salvation to the Gentiles, while at the same time seeking to provoke the jealousy of the Yahudim who continually sought other elohim apart from Yahweh, with whom He had established a covenant, which should provoke in each person the desire to do Teshuvah (Return / Repent) with all their heart and to turn to the true Elohim, Yahweh, through his son Yahushua HaMashiach. This had been prophesied in the Torah millennia before, even if today most Jews deny it and invent different reasons or explanations to try to interpret what is prophesied, Scripture cannot be broken.
And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them,
I will see what their end will be,
For they are a perverse generation,
Children in whom is no faith.
They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not Elohim;
They have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols.
But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation;
I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.
Now therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them. And I will make of you [as the Last] a great nation [Spiritual Yisrael].”
Yahweh gives us an example of humility by asking Moshe's approval to act, in addition to using this moment as a test that Moshe passes using mercy and intelligence. Yahweh acts according to Moshe’s advice for the honor of His Name and for His love for Moshe, but keeps his plan for a future time, when He would send the one he promised to Moshe, a Prophet like him, to form, through him, the great nation that he mentioned in the previous verse. Likewise, Scripture prophesies of the Last using Zerubbabel as a prophetic shadow, through whom He promises to build the Temple (Zc.4:9), which is a representation of the chosen people in which Yahweh will dwell for eternity.
It is worth mentioning that, as a mirror of the prophecy mentioned in Exodus, Yahweh caused the entire generation that left Egypt to die in the desert for 40 years, so that those who ended up inheriting the land were their children, in the same way that the Congregation was formed two thousand years ago, which is 40 Jubilees, a time in which the Congregation has walked through a spiritual desert, due to its rebellion, by straying away from the truth, which is Yahushua HaMashiach, and having adopted a false-messiah that adapts to the believer, instead of the believer adapting to the truth for eternal life. At present we are at the end of the 40 Jubilees, which is when the descendants, like the Chosen Congregation, will enter into the true promise, which is eternal life.
It should be clear that Yahweh has never rejected nor will he reject his people (Rm.11:1-15); however, we must also understand that from the beginning the Almighty had already thought of a spiritual people and not one of the flesh, so Scripture makes it clear “that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Yahweh; nor does corruption inherit incorruption” (1Co.15:50), which is why everything we see in Exodus and what has to do with Yisrael of the flesh, is an image of what would happen in the spirit. This means that the people that Yahweh chose from the beginning are those that He knew would recognize His son Yahushua, the Messiah, who is the Truth and who reveals the Father. In other words, a Yahudi who accepts Mashiach is a true Yahudi in spirit, not just outwardly in his flesh, which is his garment, while a Yahudi of the flesh who does not accept Mashiach is simply a gentile dressed as a Jew. (Rm.2:25-27, 3:29-30; 1Co.7:18-20; Cl.3:9-12; Gl.5:4-6, 6:14-16)
On this occasion, Moshe acted as Abraham when Yahweh destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah through his 2 Malakim (2 Witnesses), which connects this event with the end of times, which will be like in the days of Lot (Gn.18-19). Note that despite having heard and followed the advice of His friend Abraham, Yahweh still destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, since His Word never returns empty (Is.55:11), but saved Lot, the only righteous man who was in that land and who represents the 144,000 who are chosen, while his wife represents the many. Besides this, it is interesting that Lot was not a descendant of Abraham in the flesh, like some of the 144,000, as already explained, since Yahweh can take children of Abraham even from the stones (Mt.3:9, Lk.3:8).
But I say, did Yisrael not know? First Moshe says:
“I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation,
I will move you to anger by a foolish nation.”
But YishaYahu is very bold and says:
“I was found by those who did not seek Me;
I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.”
But to Yisrael he says:
“All day long I have stretched out My hands
To a disobedient and contrary people.”
Another reason why the tribe of Dan is not counted in the list of Revelation 7, is because the Beast will come out of it, who will cause the death of the Witness like Moshe.
“Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Yisrael.
Dan shall be a serpent [Samael | Judas] by the way [Yahushua],
a viper [Heilel | Accuser] by the path [The Last],
That bites the horse’s heels [White]
So that its rider shall fall backward [Witness like Moshe].
I have waited for your salvation [לישועתך | Yahushua in the Last], O Yahweh!
Since Dan was given authority to judge the people, he was tempted to abuse that power, just as Satan was.
As can be seen in Genesis 49, Yaakov ends Dan's blessing/prophecy with the words “I have waited for your Salvation”, since for a moment, in his prophetic vision, he thought that Mashiach would come from that tribe, when he saw Samson in the future, manifesting from the tribe of Dan, but when he noticed that Samson is only a reflection, he declared that he would continue to wait, even after him. Another interpretation reveals that the tribe of Dan, in this context, represents those who will fall into the clutches of the Beast and the False-Messiah, reason why Yaakov warns Yisrael to continue waiting and search for another person from a different tribe, which is fulfilled with the blessing of Yahusef (Gen. 49: 22-26).
Dan's territory bordered that of Ephraim, which shows a clear connection between the two tribes. Dan considered their share as unacceptable, showing their disagreement and lack of understanding, just as the nonconforming Jews found the Messiah that Yahweh sent them unacceptable, without understanding the prophecies and his mission. Although the two tribes (Ephraim and Dan) are not on the list of Revelation 7, the vision given to Ezekiel shows how there will be a piece of land for each tribe, which confirms that they will enter, but in different way, as will be explained later; in addition to showing that the names that are mentioned in the list have to do with a spiritual interpretation.
“Now these are the names of the tribes: From the northern border along the road to Hethlon [Hidden Place] at the entrance of Hamath [Fortress], to Hazar Enan [Village of Fountains], the border of Damascus [silent is the sackcloth weaver] northward, in the direction of Hamath [Fortress], there shall be one section for Dan [Judge] from its east to its west side; by the border of Dan, from the east side to the west, one section for Asher; by the border of Asher, from the east side to the west, one section for Naphtali; by the border of Naphtali, from the east side to the west, one section for Manasseh; by the border of Manasseh, from the east side to the west, one section for Ephraim;
In Judges 18 we find a very interesting story, in which Danites build their own temple to place and worship the idol that they had stolen from Ephraim, which represents the 3rd Temple and the False Messiah with which the Beast will deceive the world, by taking the false doctrine of the many.
In those days there was no king in Yisrael. And in those days the tribe of the Danites was seeking an inheritance for itself to dwell in; for until that day their inheritance among the tribes of Yisrael had not fallen to them.
The tribe of Dan, having no land of their own, while looking for a place to live, passed through the land of Ephraim and stole Mikah’s idols. Afterwards, they went to Laish, whose people dwelt safely, quiet and secure, then proceeded to attack and defeat them, in their temple placed their idols and the priest they have taken from Mikah’s house, settling in their new land (Jud.18). In the same way, the Beast will take the false doctrine of the Many, to deceive the world with the idol of the nations, it will establish itself in a land that does not belong to it and then it will destroy the many and even the Great Harlot, from whom it would have taken the idol and the False Prophet (Priest).
126.96.36.199. Efraím & Dan in Judges 17 & 18.
In chapters 17 and 18 of the book of Judges there are several examples that reveal different characteristics of the two tribes that are omitted in Revelation 7 and that manifested in a negative way throughout history:
1. The man who is mentioned in the story originally appears by the name MikaYahu [מיכיהו]; however, when Scripture reveals his idolatry, it removes two letters from his name, so that Yahweh's name is not dishonored by mentioning him, which is why afterwards he continues to be called Mikah. [מיכה].
2. Ephraim’s prosperity, represented by the 1100 silver shekels of Mikah's Mother (Jud.17:2), caused his son's greed to tempt him in order to steal them, which provoked his mother, in her ignorance, to curse her own son.
3. Once Mikah confesses the theft, his mother blesses Yahweh; however, he immediately uses that money (prosperity) to create a pair of idols, one of wood (Jesus) and one of metal/silver (God). This event reveals how Christians say that they worship the Almighty, but by invoking a false name and making different types of idols that they honor, whether they are images, statues, crucifixes or money itself; show that they are actually worshiping false elohim, in the same way as Mikah and his mother.
4. The power of the tribe of Dan and the number of their army, made them fool themselves into thinking that they had the authority to steal the idols from Mikah’s house, take his priest and finally take the land of Laish (Lion), whose people dwelt safely, to end up falling into idolatry as well.
Each character in this story of Judges represents some person or group of people at the end of time:
1. In this context, Mikah represents the Many; however, the name of MikaYahu (Who is like Yahweh?), a descendant of Ephraim, represents the malak MikaEl (Who is like the Mighty One?) and reveals that when MikaEl manifests on earth (Dn.12:1) He would do it through the tribe of Ephraim, to fulfill what was prophesied about Mashiach BenYosef, the prophet like Moshe. Having stolen money from his mother represents the fact that the Last comes as a thief in the night and as a prodigal son. The above indicates that, in these chapters, “the house of MikaYahu” represents the lost tribes of Yisrael, the congregations of the Messiah who are currently in the Apostasy worshiping false elohim through the different idols that they have made.
2. Throughout the story it is mentioned, on two occasions, that at that time there was no king in Yisrael, which refers to the time of the end, when only the Kohen Gadol (Yahushua) would have manifested and therefore the Last would not have been established as Melek Gadol yet, despite being in the last days, so this confirms that it refers to the time of the Apostasy, shortly before the last 7 years.
3. Mikah's mother, in this case, represents the spirit of the apostate church that is idolatrous, greedy and conditional, thus serving the Mighty One only when things go according to her expectations.
4. The priest that Mikah established represents the False Prophet, the 2nd Beast (the Pope), who is unfaithful and binds himself to whoever offers him honor and more power.
5. The tribe of Dan represents the world government, those who have established themselves as judges of the world, through their worship of Lucifer (Heilel), as the synagogue of Satan, who try to establish their New World Order on earth, which is why the tribe was looking for a land to inhabit, of course a land that was not their portion because they did not take what Yahweh gave them (Jud.18:1). Another confirmation of this is the simple fact that they threatened to kill anyone who opposed them.
188.8.131.52. Ephraim & Dan prophetically.
Each tribe represents a specific group:
- Dan = Jews
- Ephraim = Christians
These two tribes have three different divisions, depending on their final decision:
1. Saved: [Believe and Confess the Name of Yahushua HaMashiach] (Few)
- Those of Ephraim and Dan who are in this category will be included in the tribe of Yahusef, by receiving a new name for their purity, after repenting and confessing the Name to be transformed during the harvest, since both Ephraim and Dan are directly related to rebellion and idolatry.
2. Justified: [They believe in the Death and Resurrection of Mashiach] (Many)
- Those of Ephraim and Dan who are in this category will be included among the Many, just as the name Ephraim means: Doubly Fruitful. In this category there are many more than among the Chosen, since as the Scripture says: “Many are Called, but Few are Chosen” (Mt.22:14). Throughout Scripture the name Ephraim is used normally to refer to the lost tribes of Yisrael, which compared to the rest are many in number; as well as being used to refer to Yisrael when they were immersed in idolatry and rebellion, in the same way that Christians are at this time.
- Another group that is in rebellion is the Jewish people of the flesh who have not accepted the Messiah. Sadly, the leaders of this group do everything in their power to stop all Jews from getting to know the truth about Yahushua; for example, by prohibiting the reading of specific chapters like YishaYahu 53 and Daniel 9, so that they do not discover that their ancestors and the rabbis of the present have rejected the true Messiah, thus they behave like Judges, which is the meaning of the name Dan, since they condemn the people by deciding that no one should enter Salvation through the only way, without even giving them the option to choose, something that even Yahweh, who has all authority, does not do. On the other hand, having been known for centuries as the Chosen People, makes them feel like they have the authority to Judge (Dan), which has caused them to commit blunders in history, such as judging the Messiah as blasphemous and demon possessed, in addition to convincing the people to reject him and finally request his execution in the worst way that they could imagine, like someone who was cursed by Elohim (Dt.21:23).
“Woe to you who interpret the Law (Torah | Dan)!
For you have taken away the key of knowledge.
You did not enter in yourselves,
and those who were entering in you hindered.”
3. Condemned: [Senseless and Fools | Rebels & Idolaters | They did not repent]
- Dan = Synagogue of Satan (Jews who do not accept Mashiach) [Rv.2:9, 3:9]
- Ephraim = False Christians (They claim to believe, but do not keep the Commandments)
When Yahushua heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed,
“Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Yisrael!
And I say to you that many will come from east and west,
and sit down with Abraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov in the kingdom of heaven.
But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness.
There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
7.2. The Many.
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
Once it is revealed to Yahuchanan who the chosen Few of the 12 tribes are, he is shown who are the Many, who follow the commandments but will have to die during the beginning of the Great Tribulation, for their rebellion, for not accepting the true doctrine and rejecting the Name of the Messiah and his Father, in order to receive Salvation.
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other Name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
As already explained in the previous section, the Many are represented by the name Ephraim throughout Scripture. In this category, the tribe of Dan would represent the leaders of the Many, who are the Pharisees of today, the priests and shepherds who do not teach the true doctrine but instead deceive their sheep.
2 Timothy 4:3
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;
Those who will be justified are described as a Great Multitude of all tribes, peoples and tongues, which refers to the fullness of the nations mentioned above [מלא הגוים]. The white robes they wear represent the bodies they will receive during the resurrection of the dead.
- White Robes: The bodies of those who are Justified who pass through death.
- Fine Linen: Bodies of those who are Transformed without experiencing death.
The Scripture mentions that the crowd was before the Throne [ת] and in the presence of the Lamb [א], which are representations of the Last and the First, respectively, so it is understood that the many will have to appear before the First and Last, once they have become one (Ez.37:17, Zc.14:9). This can be seen more clearly in the original Hebrew, as it would literally translate: “before the face of the Throne and the face of the Lamb” [לפני הכסא ולפני השה].
In addition to wearing white, which represents their justification, the crowd has palms in their hands, which evokes the moment when all nations recognize Mashiach as King.
The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Yahushua was coming to Yerushalaim, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out:
“Hoshiah-Na! [הושיעה נא] ‘Blessed is He who comes in the Name of Yahweh!’ The King of Yisrael!”
In the text of the book of Revelation you can also see a connection with the feast of Sukkot, which is when the 30 days in which the Many will die begin. During this festival, the people must go to the mountains of Yerushalaim and make tabernacles, which represents the 2nd Exodus that will conclude in Shemini Atzeret, with the harvest; reason why the people quoted the verse from Psalms, asking the Almighty for the Salvation which will be fulfilled during the transformation. (Hos.5:7; Mt.21:8-9, 24:16; 1Cor.15:51)
And many spread their clothes on the road, and others cut down leafy branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:
“Hoshiah-Na! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of Yahweh!’
Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of Yahweh!
Hoshiah-Na [הושיעה נא] in the highest!”
Save now [הושיעה נא], I pray, O Yahweh;
O Yahweh, I pray, send now prosperity.
Interestingly, if we take the Hebrew word that is translated as: Save us [הושיעה], we can write the name of the Messiah, Yahushua [יהושע]. If we keep the other letter Hei [היהושע] it would translate: The Yahushua; which refers to the only Yahushua who fulfilled the complete will of his Father Yahweh.
The people expected the fulfillment of all the prophecies regarding the Messiah and what he would establish, as promised by Yahweh; however, Yahushua was manifesting as the High Priest, to fulfill part of what was expected, while leaving a prophetic shadow of the moment when he would manifest as the Great King, an event that is reflected in the words of the Many in Revelation 7.
and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our Elohim who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the malakim stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped Yahweh, saying:
“Amein! Blessing and majesty and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor
and power and might, Be to our Elohim forever and ever. Amein.”
In these verses we can see that the Many finally come to recognize that Salvation belongs only to Yahweh, whose presence is on the Throne, and to Yahushua HaMashiach, who was sacrificed as the Lamb; instead of those false-elohim whose names they invoked among the nations whence they came.
Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of Yahweh, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.
The elder speaking to Yahuchanan explains that the Great Multitude got there after dying during the Great Tribulation, which is confirmed by saying that they washed their clothes in the blood of the Lamb, which means that they cleansed their bodies from all sin through their faith in the death and resurrection of the Messiah, since it is clear that to wash your clothes you must take them off first, which would represent death, when the soul undresses from the body to be purified.
And He [Yahushua] said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.
In the previous verse we find the fulfillment of the prophecy given by YirmYahu (31:31) about the new covenant; furthermore, we can see that Yahushua specifically mentions the Many when referring to his blood.
that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Messiah through the good news,
Verse 15 of Revelation 7 says that the Many serve in the Temple, while Revelation 3:12 reveals that the Chosen are the Temple. Another way of understanding this is that the Chosen are the Body, while the Many are the Blood that serves in the body; the Few are the Wheat and the Many are the Grapes. Besides this, the same verse mentions that Yahweh will dwell among them, which identifies the Many as the other sheepfold that Yahushua said He would bring to Himself, when manifesting as the Good Shepherd.
I am the Good Shepherd; and I know My sheep [the Few], and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep [the Many] I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice [the Last]; and there will be one flock and one shepherd [First & Last].
Yahushua mentioned that he came for the Yahudim in his first manifestation, while also revealing that he has other sheep for which he would have to come again, as the Last, confirmed by the fact that he says: they will hear my voice; since the Voice is the Last, in addition to having said it in the future tense, before referring to the union of both, the First and the Last, as was also prophesied by Zechariah (14:9).
They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the Throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And Yahweh will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Unlike the Chosen Few, the Many focus more on their physical life than on the spiritual life, for this reason what they are promised has to do merely with the negative things of this reality, saying that “they shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore, the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat” and “Yahweh will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Now, the spiritual aspect of the previous verses, as regards to the Few and the Many, when saying that they will neither hunger nor thirst represents the fact that there will no longer be any doubt about the existence of the Almighty, since He will be known by all in a clear way, at different levels; every question will receive an immediate responds and every prayer will be answered before it is even uttered (Is.65:24). The fact that the Sun will not fall on them, nor any heat, means that there will no longer be an accusation against them that can condemn them to the fire.
