Declaring the End from the Beginning

Thyatira | 3rd Chapter

3.4. Thyatira: [Catholics] (Rev.2:18-29)
This congregation is characterized by those who worship the Queen of Heaven (Jr.7:18, 44:16-25), whose main reflection on earth was Jezebel. To this kehila belong those who maintain the Babylonian doctrine of Semiramis, as the supposed "Immaculate Virgin", since they venerate different types of images as well as her son Tammuz, the False-Messiah, whose symbol is a cross, for it is the first letter of his name.

Revelation 2:18-29 [Sun] (2nd to 6th day of Sukkot) {Great Tribulation of the Many}
“And to the angel of the church in Thyatira [“Odor of Affliction”] write,
‘These things says the Son of Yahweh, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass: “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality [Idolatry] and eat things sacrificed to idols [believing Doctrines of Demons]. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality [Idolatry], and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into Great Tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. “Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. But hold fast what you have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations— ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’— as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star [Sun]. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’

Key points about Thyatira:

    • Their last works are more than the first.
    • They worship the Queen of Heaven through the name Mary (Falling into idolatry).
    • As a congregation, they will not repent of their works.
    • Within it are the wicked who have known the Depths of Satan (Zeus).
    • They will die during the Great Tribulation.
    • He who overcomes will be given eternal life when resurrected; the Last will rule the Nations.

3.4.1. Luminary: Sun

It is written that the eye is the light of the body, so when the Messiah, in his letter to Thyatira, declares having eyes like a flame of fire, he is saying that his light is the consuming fire, which means that his Soul is Yahweh Himself (Mt.6:22, Dt.4:24, Ac.12:29). This is important for several factors, but in this context it has to do with the luminary that corresponds to this kehila, which is the Sun, the light of the world, which Yahushúa confessed to be, in a spiritual sense, while the Last is called the Sun of Justice (Jn.8:12, Mal.4:2). This is the reason why, in the message to this congregation, the First (Yahushua) promises to give the one who overcomes "the Morning Star", since this luminary has represented and been under the power of Heilel ("Lucifer"), but eventually will be given to the Last, the Witness like Moshe, after fulfilling his ministry, since he will take the place that the Enemy occupies today, as Elohim of the earth, therefore Yahweh also promises him authority over the nations, to rule them with a rod of iron (Ex.4:16, 7:1; Ps.2:9; Rev.12:5, 19:15). 

This is a confirmation that the prophet YishaYahu ("Isaiah") was referring to the Sun, having said "Heilel BenShajar" ("Lucifer Son of the Dawn”), which I consider important to mention, since many speculate regarding the star to which Scripture was referring in the prophecy already mentioned (Is.14:12), where some have concluded that it refers to Jupiter, while the majority teaches that it speaks of Venus, since this is the planet that is most commonly called "Morning Star"; however, we must remember that in the original Hebrew of that verse, the word “Star” (כוכב) or “Morning” (בקר) is not used, but “Luminary” (הילל) and “Dawn” (שחר).

Throughout human history, the Sun has been the main false mighty one idolized by most pagan cultures around the world, which is clearly due to the fact that it gives the light, heat and energy for the earth to produce food and make many other countless processes in nature happen, in addition to being the highest and most powerful thing that all humanity has the ability to observe every day, so that entire cultures have turned aside from the truth to serve this lamp, even though it is only a servant of Yahweh. Now, many people today would perhaps say that ancestors were fools for worshiping the Sun and therefore it is something they would never do, however, they must understand that it is not the light itself that they worship, but the Angel that it represents, which is why a large percentage of the world's religions are completely based on sun worship, through various rituals, idols, clothes, buildings, words and prayers.

Ezekiel 6:4-6
Then your altars shall be desolate, your images of the Sun shall be destroyed, and I will cast down your slain men before your idols. And I will lay the corpses of the children of Israel before their idols, and I will scatter your bones all around your altars. In all your dwelling places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate, so that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, your idols may be broken and made to cease, your images of the Sun shall be cut down, and your works may be abolished.

The Christians, for the past two millennia, have behaved as the people of Yisrael did repeatedly, throughout history, which functioned as a reflection in Scripture for us to understand what is happening at this time and the reason for the curses and plagues that are about to fall on the earth. In the previous verses, the words "images of the Sun" not only refer to drawings or sculptures representing the Sun as a yellow circle, but also to those statues with human appearance that are worshiped as the Sun made man, such as Apollo, Tammuz, Ra and the Lord (Baal) Jesus.

In ancient times, the main idol of Thyatira was the Sun god Tyrimnos (Tyrimnaeos), who was identified by the Greeks as Apollo. To a lesser extent, they worshiped Boreitene, a goddess identified as Artemis (Moon), the sister of Apollo, in addition to worshiping the Sibyl Sambethe, a priestess and supposed prophetess who presided over the oracle of Apollo. The title “Sibila” comes from “Sibulla,” a Greek word that has commonly been translated as “Prophetess,” which of course connects with Jezebel, who is mentioned in the message to Thyatira as the person who plagued this congregation with idolatry and false doctrines; which indicates that the spirit that was in Jezebel was the same that was in the different Sibyls that have existed throughout history. This means that Jezebel was a Sibyl or rather the original Sibyl, since she is whom the Scripture mentions when referring to the spirit of these prophetesses.

3.4.2. Doctrine: “Catholic” 

As mentioned earlier, the doctrine that fulfills what is represented by the message to Thyatira, is the Catholic religion, in which, people who belong to it, generally think that they follow the Almighty and his Son, without realizing that absolutely all their religion and doctrine has to do with idolatry of the Sun, the Moon and the rest of the Stars ("the Host of Heaven").

When the Roman empire made Christianity its main religion, it perverted the true doctrine, by diverting the teachings and praise of believers to the Sun Invictus, instead of the Creator and his Son, venerating the Moon as the "Holy Spirit", Venus as Mary and the rest of the Stars as all the Saints. This is the reason why these believers do not eat Matzah ("Unleavened Bread") as the Messiah, but instead, when taking "communion" during the “eucharist”, they eat a type of cookie called Hostia, which is circular to represent the sun; which means that by carrying out this ritual they are not joining the Savior and Son of the Almighty, but the Sun god (Tyrimnos / Apollo / Tammuz / Baal / Adonis / Ra / Shamash / Helios). Another clear example of this, are the Halos that are painted or placed over the heads of their idols, which are circles that represent the Sun, as it is clear in the name which comes from the word Helio (Sun), implying that those who have a halo over their heads are sent by the sun god, the false elohim worshiped in Catholicism.

The message to Thyatira is the only one that mentions Jezebel, who was the earthly manifestation of the spirit of the false congregation, which means that just as Balak represents the 1st Beast and Bilaam the False Prophet, Jezebel symbolizes the Great Whore. In Hebrew, what is commonly translated as "Spirit" is Ruach (רוח), a word that is feminine, so the fact that Scripture mentions that this kehila allows Jezebel to teach and seduce to commit idolatry and believe in doctrines of demons, refers to the spirit that is working in this religion, which prophesies lies and teaches all kinds of false doctrines, as the Sibyls did in the past. In addition, using a woman as an example confirms that it refers to the Catholic doctrine, in which they give more importance to Mary, the Queen of Heaven, than to the Almighty Himself and his Son, by calling her "Mother of God."

The name Jezebel also reveals other important details, since it can be interpreted in three different ways. In the Concordance they translate it from Greek (G2403) as "Chaste" or "Virgin", while at the same time clarifying that the name is of Hebrew origin (H348), language in which it is translated as "Virgin of the Lord", “The Lord exalts” or “Habitation of the Lord”. This is interesting, since it is directly connected with the pagan doctrine and the title that they give to Mary as "Immaculate Virgin", which shows that in reality the Spirit they worship with the name Mary, is that of Jezebel, since the real name of the mother of the Messiah is Miriam, who had other children after Yahushua, therefore, she did not remain a virgin for the rest of her life, as they teach in Catholicism (Mt.1:25, 12:46; Mr.3:31, Lk.8:19; Jn.7:10; Ac.1:14). In addition, the same name Jezebel reveals that Baal (“Lord”) is the one who wishes to exalt her and not the true Almighty, as well as the fact the spirit of the Lord is the one that inhabits her, meaning that Satan is the one who dwells in the false kehila that worships the supposed "Immaculate Virgin".

Another connection between Jezebel and the Roman church, which also reveals the conspiracy between the Beast and the Christians to kill the Two Witnesses, has to do with the fact that Jezebel threatened the prophet EliYahu to death (1Ki.19:2, 1Ki.18:40), which she could not accomplish, since Yahweh took the prophet alive (2Ki.2:11-12), while Jezebel was eaten by dogs (2Ki.9:30-37), as it had been prophesied (1Ki.21:23, 2Ki.9:10). Centuries later, when EliYahu returned to the world as Yahuchanan the Immersor ("John the Baptist"), as Yahushúa identified him (Mt.11:13-15), the spirit of Jezebel was in Herodias, wife of Philip, the brother of Herod, king of Yahudah, who committed adultery with his brother's wife, so Yahuchanan corrected him by telling him that he was not allowed to be with Herodias (Mr.6:17-18). This reprimand provoked Herodias' hatred towards Yahuchanan, so from that moment Herodias sought an occasion to take his life (Mr.6:19-20), just as Jezebel wanted to assassinate EliYahu.

One day when Herod celebrated his birthday with other rulers, he asked the daughter of Herodias to dance to entertain his guests. After she obeyed, the king was so pleased with her display, that he offered her half of his kingdom without thinking, moment in which the young woman asked for her mother's advice regarding what she should request, an opportunity that Herodias took to demand the head of Yahuchanan, since on this occasion Herod could not refuse, due to his oath in front of the other leaders, so the king decided to give the order to cut his head immediately (Mt.14:1-12, Mr.6:17-29). In this way, after hundreds of years, what Jezabel planned to do to EliYahu was fulfilled, but through Herodias and Yahuchanan, when the adulteress took advantage of the “charms” of her daughter, who represents the Christian church, while Herodias represents Rome, the Catholic church, which descended spiritually from Babylon and is symbolized by Jezebel.

All this means that Herod, the false king of Yahudah, who in this case represents the World Leader (1st Beast), offered to give half of his kingdom to Herodias’s daughter, who symbolizes Christianity, and instead of consulting with the Almighty, just like Herodias' daughter, the Christian church will consult with the spirit of error of the mother church, represented by Herodias, who symbolizes the Great Whore, the Catholic church, which has the spirit of Jezebel, the spirit of Confusion (Babylon) that they worship in the false religion, which is why Christians will ask for the life of the Witness like EliYahu, for the spiritual torments that he will have caused all churches that follow doctrines of demons (Rev.11:10).

The letter to Thyatira mentions that some of the people from this congregation have known the depths of Satan, referring to all kinds of hidden knowledge, sorcery, magic and more. Regarding this point, I would like to mention the comments of a couple of renowned Catholics, who have revealed what is happening "secretly" in the Vatican. For example, Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, a renowned exorcist who worked in the Vatican as a special delegate of the Pontifical Council for Migrants and Travelers, who chose the International Congress of Fatima 2000, on World Peace, held in Rome in November 1996, to give a speech entitled "Satanists working in the Vatican", in which he addressed an international audience of bishops, priests, nuns and laity, to declare that there are members of high ranks, in the hierarchy of the Catholic church, involved in the worship of Satan; to which he added, that the "Pope" Paul VI said in 1972, that the smoke of Satan had entered the Church.

These statements were recorded in the publication of the newsletter “The Fatima Crusader” of 1997. According to Milingo, the devil is not only worshiped by Catholic leaders, but is also defended by ecclesiastical authorities, as an animal protected by the government, from all kinds of hunters who try to capture him, so much so, that today the exorcists are forbidden from attacking Satan. When questioned later by the Italian press, about his accusations, Milingo said that he stands firm in his word. These allegations by this Archbishop are particularly interesting, since they are similar to the statements made by the respected Catholic writer Dr. Malachi Martin.

Malachi Martin served as a Jesuit Priest in Rome from 1958 to 1964, where he carried out many sensitive missions, as a close associate of the Jesuit Cardinal Augustin Bea and the "Popes" John XXIII and Paul VI. After being released from his vows of poverty and obedience, but still serving as a priest, he moved to New York, where he became a writer and before he died in 1999, he revealed many secrets of the Catholic Church through his books, of which some were written as fiction, basically to speak openly without risking reprisals. Dr. Martin wrote extensively about the "New World Order," which seeks to develop a single economic system, as well as the formation of a single judicial system; in addition, he talked about homosexuality and pedophilia, practiced by many of the Catholic leaders; the assassination of John Paul I, through Masonic Cardinals; and a ceremony of Satanic Enthronement that took place in the Vatican at the beginning of the pontificate of Paul VI in 1963, to establish Lucifer (Heilel) over the church. In his book "The Keys of this Blood" [pg.632], Malachi makes reference to the "Pope" John Paul II encountering the immovable presence of an evil force in the Vatican, which ecclesiastics know as the "super-force."

In another publication of the newsletter “The Fatima Crusader” about Malachi Martin, he was quoted referring to the controversy caused by the statements made by Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, saying: “Archbishop Milingo is a good bishop and his contention that there are satanists in Rome is completely correct. Anybody who is acquainted with the state of affairs in the Vatican in the last 35 years is well aware that the prince of darkness has had and still has his surrogates in the court of St. Peter in Rome.”

His book "Windswept House" was written as fiction, but according to the analysis of a well-known author and priest named Charles Fiore, it is a novel in which true people and places are disguised as fantasy. In it Malachi writes that Lucifer was enthroned in the Vatican on June 29, 1963, which confirmed what Milingo and Paul VI said, describing how the high Hierarchs of the Church have signed covenants with their own blood, with plans of destroying the church from within (Rev.17:16), by participating in meticulous rituals to blaspheme and mock the Sacrifice of the Messiah. In addition, Malachi Martin explains that this ritual had to be performed again 50 years later, to maintain Satan’s power over the church, which means that this must have happened in 2013, shortly after Jorge Bergoglio became "Pope."

Exactly nine years after the first ceremony mentioned by Martin, on June 29, 1972, during a solemnity mass of “Saint Peter” and “Saint Paul,” the “Pope” Paul VI lamented by saying: “from some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God”. Therefore, it is not surprising that the congregation of Thyatira, which represents the Catholic church, is the one immersed in the "depths of Satan."

3.4.3. Assembly: Sukkot (2nd to 6th day)

As explained in the section about Pergamos, the convocation of Sukkot has a duration of 7 days, so it is the only Assembly, of those that remain to be fulfilled, whose celebration is represented by three different congregations, as seen on the image of the Menorah, at the end of the previous chapter, where the central light is the one that connects with the church of Thyatira and with the days that are between the 1st and 7th of Sukkot, which correspond to Pergamos and Sardis respectively. The clearest confirmation of this is the fact that the letter to this congregation, unlike the previous ones, refers to the Great Tribulation, which will begin immediately after the Chosen ones have fled to the mountains, when the Abomination of Desolation is revealed, which will happen on the 1st day of Sukkot, therefore the Great Tribulation would begin on the 2nd day, at which point the False Messiah will order the death of all those who do not worship him and refuse to receive the mark of the Beast. In addition, it is interesting that the Great Tribulation will begin in the middle of the last 7 years, just as Thyatira is in the middle of the 7 kehilot and represents what happens exactly at that time, just as it symbolizes the days that are between the first and the last of Sukkot.

The message to this kehila also mentions that its children will be mortally wounded, which is another confirmation of the doctrine it represents and the fact that it is directly connected to the Great Tribulation, when the Many will have to die for their rebellion. During this period, the Last, called in the Scripture “He who Overcomes”, will receive the authority upon ascending to heaven after having died and risen, as prophesied in chapter 11 and 12 of Revelation. It is for this reason that the message to this congregation specifically says that he who overcomes will be given authority over the nations to rule them with a rod of iron (Rev.12:5), a metal that represents the Roman empire, according to the book of Daniel (Dn.2:40); which confirms, once again, that Thyatira represents the Roman Catholic church and that the power that this empire has had over the world, even before Yahushua came in the flesh, will be handed over to the Conqueror.

In the book of ZecharYah the second manifestation of Yahweh on earth is represented by Zerubbabel, whose name means "Sown in Babel" or "Born in Confusion." This is why the Last is mentioned more clearly in the message to this congregation, because at his coming he will appear in the midst of confusion and be born under the religion of the Great Whore of Babylon. Realizing its falsehood, he will go through the different false doctrines in which believers are today, until he finds the truth. First he himself will be in error, like the rest of the world, but finally, during his ministry, he will manifest these doctrinal errors upon receiving the light and becoming the lamp of Yahweh, as the prophesied Sun of Righteousness, like the luminary represented by this kehila.

Just as Zerubbabel was born in the dispersion of Yahudah in Babylon, so will it be with “the Prophet” nowadays that Yisrael is scattered throughout the earth, which is basically the New Babylon. In the same way that Moshe, who freed the people from slavery, was born in Egypt, the Witness like Moshe, who will free the Chosen from this world, will have been born outside the promised land and outside the true doctrine, being also the fulfillment of the “Prodigal Son”.

3.4.4. Meaning of Thyatira: “Odor of Affliction”

The meaning of the name of this congregation is directly connected with what is mentioned in the previous section. Thyatira means “Odor of Affliction," which refers to the pain that they will have to go through and of course it connects with the fact that those who belong to this doctrine will have to die during the Great Tribulation, being justified through the believe in their hearts to receive eternal life, since it is written that the children of the congregation of Thyatira will be mortally wounded, as explained above, to be resurrected with a new body, cleansed of sin, without the inclination to evil and with a single language to invoke the Almighty and his Son correctly. (Zc.14:9, Sof.3:9)

It is also relevant to mention that, unlike those believers who rejoice in the salvation and eternal life offered by the Messiah, the Catholic church is more focused on his death and his pain, so there are still those who afflict themselves as a way to purge sins, according to their twisted understanding, therefore their repetitive prayers and laments have a spiritual odor of affliction and reflect the pain that will happen to those who follow such a doctrine that basically invites pain to their lives, since they see it as a way to purge their faults; while the prayers of the Chosen ones have a fragrance that pleases Yahweh, which is why they are represented by the incense burned in the Temple.

3.4.5. Mirror in the Scripture

Mashiach mentions having the eyes like a flame of fire and his feet like brass, which are related to each other, since in the Scripture brass is usually connected with the fire. For example, the book of Numbers tells a story in which the Yisraelim began to murmur against Yahweh and Moshe, so the Almighty sent poisonous snakes to bite them. Once the people repent and confess their sin, Moshe asks the Creator, on behalf of the people, to stop the punishment, at which time instead of stopping the plague immediately, as on other occasions, Yahweh takes advantage of the moment and orders Moshe to perform a prophetic act, in which he gives shape to a snake using brass and places it on a pole, so that those who were bitten could observe the snake hanging on as a banner and be immediately healed just by believing. 

Numbers 21:4-9
And they journeyed from Mount Hor by the way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom [Catholicism], and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way [the First]. And the people spoke against Elohim and against Moshe [the Last], Why have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loathes this light bread. And Yahweh sent fiery serpents [השרפים | “the Serafim”]  among the people, and they bit the people; and many people of Israel died.
Then the people came to Moses and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against Yahweh and against thee; pray unto Yahweh that he take away these serpents from among us. And Moshe prayed for the people.
And Yahweh said unto Moses, make thee a fiery serpent [שרף] and lift it up as a banner, and it shall be that anyone that is bitten and looks upon it shall live. And Moshe made a serpent of brass [נחש נחשת] and put it up as a banner, and it came to pass that when a serpent bit anyone, he beheld the serpent of brass, and lived.

First, it is interesting that the people were discouraged because of the way, mainly because they could not go directly through the land of Edom, but had to surround it, which symbolizes how we should not mix with the false teachings of those who call themselves our spiritual brothers, in the different Christian denominations (Rev.18:4), just as Edom was Yaakov's brother and despite there being a blood relationship between the two peoples, Edom, who spiritually represents the Roman church, did not allow their relatives to go through their land, in the same way that those who do not believe in the true Messiah claim they love their neighbor, but in reality what is in their hearts is contempt, murmuring and so on, so that although there may be countless illusory pleasures in religions or churches with multitudes of members (Edom) and the path we are taking appears to be tougher, we must know that it is only for a moment and persevere in the Way, which is Yahushúa HaMashiach.

Having to go through a different path, instead of what they expected, discouraged them to the point of murmuring, therefore the Almighty acted measure by measure (מידהכנגדמידה), by sending snakes to bite them and infect them with the venom of their mouths, for having spoken evil and giving ear to what was being said. The snake's tongue is very particular, since it reveals what it represents spiritually, showing its nature by having been split into two parts, for having used it to contradict Elohim's words and make Eve fall into sin by eating the fruit of knowledge, as shown in the book of Genesis, which represents people who use their mouths to praise the Almighty and then to speak ill of the brother, those who with the same mouth give blessing and also curse, who make use of the truth and immediately speak lies. (Jam.3:6-12)

That which is translated in the previous verses as “Fiery Serpents”, in Hebrew is "HaSerafim", which basically means "The Burning Ones”, a name used to refer to a certain type of venomous snakes, whose venom causes a sensation similar to fire and makes the victim feel like burning from the inside; but it is also the name of a type of Malak (“Angel”), which indicates that what happened in the Scripture account is a spiritual reflection that refers to the fallen angels that will appear with the False-Messiah (Isa.14:29). In the same way that Yisrael began to speak ill of their Elohim and their Leader, the Christian church will be judged by the words they use and many will end up dying for their sin, represented by the poison in the mouths of these snakes, for the wages of sin is death (Rm.6:23). It is for this reason, that Yahweh commands Moshe to make a Serpent (נחש = 358) of brass and put it on a pole, in order to represent that the true Messiah (משיח = 358), whose feet are like brass, would be sacrificed on a wooden beam, to cleanse from their sins all those who believe in him and save them from death (Jn.3:14-15).

In Hebrew, the numerical value of the words Serpent and Messiah are exactly the same (358), which can be interpreted in two ways; first, in the negative sense, seeing Satan as the Serpent, shows the fact that when the Messiah was sacrificed, being hung from a wooden beam, he was actually destroying (358-358 = 0) the power of the serpent (Satan) and its poison (Sin), for all those who believe in him, just as Moshe hung a Serpent from a pole, so that all who saw and believed in the salvation of Yahweh would be healed; while the second way of understanding it, is seeing the Messiah as the Set-Apart Serpent [נחש קדש], represented by what Moshe did, since the serpent is an animal that, in a positive sense, represents receiving knowledge and wisdom, which is part of what the root of the word ‘serpent’ in Hebrew implies, in addition to the fact that it was the Serpent who led the Woman to eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, as now through Yahushúa on the wooden beam, the Congregation can approach the Tree of Life and eat its fruit, through faith in him, to obtain Everlasting Life and the Knowledge of Who is the true Almighty Father, upon receiving his spirit.

In the past, Brass was used to make mirrors, which reveals how this Serpent of Brass is simply a reflection of a higher truth (1Co.13:12). Notice how Scripture mentions that these were Fiery Serpents (השרפים), in addition to the fact that Yahweh commands Moshe to make a “Fiery Serpent” (שרף), which he fulfills by shaping a Serpent using Brass to represent Fire and at the same time show the relationship between the words Brass (נחשת) and Serpent (נחש).

In Hebrew, the word Brass (נחשת = 758) represents the 2nd manifestation of Mashiach, that is, the Last, since its numerical value is the sum of the value of Mashiach (358 = משיח) and that of the letter Tav (ת = 400), which is the last letter of Alef-Bet, therefore the words "Nachash Nechoshet" ("Serpent of Brass”) refer to the First and Last Messiah; the Mashiach who Saves and the one who will manifest as the Consuming Fire. This is interesting, since the Witness like Moshe, at the beginning of his testimony, will have come out of the Christian church, which is represented by Greece, the empire that is symbolized by Brass, according to the book of Daniel (2:32). In fact, the same word Brass in Hebrew can be seen as an image of the Serpent as a banner or Mashiach on the cross, for if we separate the last letter of the word “Nechoshet” (נחשת), we are left with “Nachash-Tav” (נחש-ת), and as we saw, “Nachash” means Serpent in Hebrew and has the same numerical value as the word “Mashiach”, while the letter Tav in the pictographic Alef-Bet is a Cross (†), which means that the word Brass (“Nechoshet") can be interpreted as the “Serpent on the †" or according to the numerical value "Mashiach on the †".

2 Kings 18:1-4
Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea [“Salvation”], son of Elah [“an Oak”], king of Yisrael [“Who will Reign as Elohim”], that Hezekiah [“Mi Strength is Yahweh”], the son of Ahaz [“Possess”], king of Yahudah [“Praise of Yahweh”], began to reign. He was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Yerushalaim [“Teaching of Peace”]. His mother’s name also was Abi [“My Father”], the daughter of ZecharYah [“Yahweh Remembers”]. And he did that which was right in the sight of Yahweh, according to all that David [“Beloved”], his father, did. He removed the high places and broke the images and cut down the groves and broke in pieces the brazen serpent that Moshe [“Drawn from the Water”] had made; for unto those days, the sons of Yisrael burned incense [“Prayed”] to it; and he called it Nehushtan [“Thing of Brass”].

First, notice the message that can be discerned through the meanings of the names mentioned in such a small piece of text. The union of these meanings can be interpreted as: “The Salvation of the Oak (the Righteous) Who will Reign as Elohim and whose Strength is Yahweh, is the One Who Will Possess the Praise of Yahweh and Provide the Peace of the Father, whom Yahweh Remembers, the Beloved who was drawn from the Water (Death)”. This is a clear description of the Messiah, First and Last.

Before the reign of Hezekiah, the Yisraelim had taken the Brazen Serpent as an idol and would burned incense to it, which represents that they would prayed to the Serpent (False-Messiah) instead of the Almighty, which is exactly what happens today in the Christian churches when they pray to "Jesus" and "God", instead of Yahweh, through his son Yahushua. When his reign began, Hezekiah removed the altars that had been built to serve false elohim, broke the idols and the symbols of Asherah ("Mary") and of course shattered the Serpent made by Moshe in the desert and called it “Nejushtan” (נחושתן) in a derogatory sense, for it means “Thing of Brass”, since the Yisraelim had misunderstood the prophetic act and instead of following Yahweh, who healed them from the snake bites, they were worshiping the serpent of brass itself.

This means that what once worked as a reflection of what would later be fulfilled by the Messiah, was taken by the people without understanding as an idol, which, of course, represents the much-revered "Crucifix", which is an image that is mainly adored by Catholics and that is supposed to be the Messiah on the Cross; however, it is simply an image of the Serpent (the False-Messiah) as a Banner, the "Nejushtan" of our time. The rebellious people took what the Messiah did 2000 years ago and twisted it, by creating a false image to make an idol, which they could worship instead of obeying the Messiah himself, just like the Yisraelim instead of serving Yahweh, who healed them of the snake venom, ended up idolizing the Snake itself thinking they were doing the right thing, in the same way that churches nowadays use the crucifix in one way or another, revealing that who they truly serve is the Brazen Serpent (The False-Messiah of Christianity).

Mainly for this reason is that Hezekiah represents the Last, since what is mentioned in the previous text reflects the time of the end, in which the Messiah (First) would have already come to save us from our sins by being nailed to a Cross, so the idolaters among the people have created the "Crucifix" and other idols, such as those of "Mary". Therefore, the Scripture is hinting at the moment in which the 2nd manifestation will happen, when the Last will destroy all false doctrines and mainly the image of the False-Messiah; so religious fanatics will turn against him as if he were against the true Sovereign, all for lack of understanding, of course.

Ezekiel 8:3-5
And that likeness put forth his hand and took me by the locks of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between the heaven and the earth and brought me in the visions of Elohim to Yerushalaim, to the door of the inner gate that looks toward the north where the habitation of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy. And, behold, the honor of the Elohim of Yisrael was there like the vision that I saw in the plain. Then he said unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up my eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.

The name that Scripture gives to the idol that Yechezkel sees at the door of the altar and in a specific room of the Temple, is very particular, since it makes direct reference to the Crucifix, for it is an image that produces jealousy in the Creator, since instead of serving the Messiah, who is the Zeal himself (Is.9:7, 37:32, Ps.69:9), they replace him with an image made by the hands of men, which is supposedly of the Zeal (Messiah), but rather provokes to jealousy. It is interesting that the idol was at the door, where they usually place their idol in Catholic churches, in addition to the fact that the true Messiah is the Door (Jn.10:7), so it is not surprising that the imposter tries to take that same place in the Temple, which they claim is to honor the Almighty.

Ezekiel 8:14-16
Then he brought me to the entrance of the door of Yahweh’s house which is toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz [Jesus]. Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. And he brought me into the inner court of Yahweh’s house, and, behold, at the entrance of the temple of Yahweh, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of Yahweh and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

Just a few verses later in the same chapter, we find a confirmation of what is the image to which the Scripture refers, since by the same door where the image of jealousy was, the idolatrous women performed a pagan ritual in which they used to cry for the death of Tammuz, the son of Semiramis ("Mary"), who represents the False-Messiah ("Antichrist"), just like they do today in Catholic processions. As we can see, the name Tamuz has a certain phonetic connection with the false name Jesus, in addition to the fact that the symbol they use to represent Tamuz is the Cross, for the first letter of his name, just as in Christianity, where they use the same symbol as a sign of their faith. In the last verse, we see how the people in the Temple were actually worshiping the Sun, the light that represents Thyatira, congregation which is connected with Tammuz, as previously explained.

Isaiah 17:8
And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands; neither shall he look upon that which his fingers have made, either the groves or the images of the Sun.

Exodus 34:14 
for thou shalt worship no other elohim; for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous Mighty One

This verse reveals to us that the Almighty’s jealousy primarily has to do with His Name. The Creator feels “jealousy” when another name is used to invoke him, since in essence, the person would be invoking and worshiping other elohim. Of course, we should not confuse this ”jealousy" with the negative feeling that human beings have in different situations, which is similar to envy. In this case, Yahweh is using this word so that we can understand in a certain way what He experiences when we act in rebellion, even without realizing it; however, He is above human emotions. Yahweh wants us to come to the understanding that just as the congregation is the Wife of the Almighty, once she accepted the Covenant (Marriage), so the act of calling on other "elohim" is equivalent to what we know as adultery, which causes a great deal of pain that most can understand to some extent, even without having experienced it. It is in this sense, equal to the jealousy that a husband would feel if he knew that his wife seeks and sleeps with other men, in which one can understand the jealousy to which Yahweh is referring, by saying that his Name is Jealous and He is a Jealous Mighty One.

Isaiah 59:17
For he put on righteousness as a coat of mail, and a helmet of saving health upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal as a cloak,

Yahushua, the First, is the one who brought Salvation so that we can use it on our head as a helmet, as explained in the letter to the Ephesians (6:17). Therefore, the previous verse speaks of the manifestation of the Last, who will wear the Salvation of the First as a helmet, to bring revenge, while Yahushua brought mercy. Therefore, the Last will be covered by the First and they will be one.

Zephaniah 3:8
Therefore wait for me, said Yahweh, until the day that I rise up to the prey; for my judgment is to gather the Gentiles, that I may assemble the kingdoms to pour upon them my indignation, even all my fierce anger; for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
