Whores to Brides Metamorphosis
Whores to Brides Metamorphosis
Ezekiel 23, “The word of Yahweh came again to me, saying:
2 “Son of man, there were two women (Judah and Ephraim),
The daughters of one mother (Israel).
3 They committed harlotry in Egypt,
They committed harlotry in their youth;
Their breasts were there embraced,
Their virgin bosom was there pressed.
4 Their names: Oholah (means: her own tabernacle) the elder and Oholibah (means: my tabernacle is in her) her sister;
They were Mine,
And they bore sons and daughters.
As for their names,
Samaria (representing Ephraim, the lost 10 tribes) is Oholah, and Jerusalem (representing Judah and Benjamin) is Oholibah.
5 “Oholah played the harlot even though she was Mine;
And she lusted for her lovers, the neighboring Assyrians (migrated to Germany),
6 Who were clothed in purple,
Captains and rulers,
All of them desirable young men,
Horsemen riding on horses.
7 Thus she committed her harlotry with them,
All of them choice men of Assyria (Germany);
And with all for whom she lusted,
With all their idols, she defiled herself.
8 She has never given up her harlotry brought from Egypt,
For in her youth they had lain with her,
Pressed her virgin bosom,
And poured out their immorality upon her.
9 “Therefore I have delivered her
Into the hand of her lovers,
Into the hand of the Assyrians (now Germans),
For whom she lusted.
10 They uncovered her nakedness,
Took away her sons and daughters,
And slew her with the sword;
She became a byword among women,
For they had executed judgment on her.
11“Now although her sister Oholibah saw this, she became more corrupt in her lust than she, and in her harlotry more corrupt than her sister’s harlotry.
12 “She lusted for the neighboring Assyrians (now Germans),
Captains and rulers,
Clothed most gorgeously,
Horsemen riding on horses,
All of them desirable young men.
13 Then I saw that she was defiled;
Both took the same way.
14 But she increased her harlotry;
She looked at men portrayed on the wall,
Images of Chaldeans portrayed in vermilion,
15 Girded with belts around their waists,
Flowing turbans on their heads,
All of them looking like captains,
In the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea,
The land of their nativity.
16 As soon as her eyes saw them,
She lusted for them
And sent messengers to them in Chaldea.
17 “Then the Babylonians (sons of Babel) came to her, into the bed of love,
And they defiled her with their immorality;
So she was defiled by them, and alienated herself from them.
18 She revealed her harlotry and uncovered her nakedness.
Then I alienated Myself from her,
As I had alienated Myself from her sister.
19 “Yet she multiplied her harlotry
In calling to remembrance the days of her youth,
When she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt.
20 For she lusted for her paramours,
Whose flesh is like the flesh of donkeys,
And whose issue is like the issue of horses.
21 Thus you called to remembrance the lewdness of your youth,
When the Egyptians pressed your bosom
Because of your youthful breasts.
22“Therefore, Oholibah, thus says Sovereign Yahweh:
‘Behold, I will stir up your lovers against you,
From whom you have alienated yourself,
And I will bring them against you from every side:
23 The Babylonians,
All the Chaldeans,
Pekod, Shoa, Koa,
All the Assyrians (now Germans) with them,
All of them desirable young men,
Governors and rulers,
Captains and men of renown,
All of them riding on horses.
24 And they shall come against you
With chariots, wagons, and war-horses,
With a horde of people.
They shall array against you
Buckler, shield, and helmet all around.
‘I will delegate judgment to them,
And they shall judge you according to their judgments.
25 I will set My jealousy against you,
And they shall deal furiously with you;
They shall remove your nose and your ears,
And your remnant shall fall by the sword;
They shall take your sons and your daughters,
And your remnant shall be devoured by fire.
26 They shall also strip you of your clothes
And take away your beautiful jewelry. (Remember, this happened again in World War II.)
27 ‘Thus I will make you cease your lewdness and your harlotry
Brought from the land of Egypt,
So that you will not lift your eyes to them,
Nor remember Egypt anymore.’
28“For thus says Sovereign Yahweh: ‘Surely I will deliver you into the hand of those you hate, into the hand of those from whom you alienated yourself. 29They will deal hatefully with you, take away all you have worked for, and leave you naked and bare. The nakedness of your harlotry shall be uncovered, both your lewdness and your harlotry. 30I will do these things to you because you have gone as a harlot after the Gentiles, because you have become defiled by their idols. 31You have walked in the way of your sister; therefore I will put her cup in your hand.’
32“Thus says Sovereign Yahweh:
‘You shall drink of your sister’s cup,
The deep and wide one;
You shall be laughed to scorn
And held in derision;
It contains much.
33 You will be filled with drunkenness and sorrow,
The cup of horror and desolation,
The cup of your sister Samaria (Ephraim).
34 You shall drink and drain it,
You shall break its shards,
And tear at your own breasts;
For I have spoken,’
Says Sovereign Yahweh.
35“Therefore thus says Sovereign Yahweh:
‘Because you have forgotten Me and cast Me behind your back,
Therefore you shall bear the penalty
Of your lewdness and your harlotry.’”
36Yahweh also said to me: “Son of man, will you judge Oholah and Oholibah? Then declare to them their abominations. 37For they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands. They have committed adultery with their idols, and even sacrificed their sons whom they bore to Me, passing them through the fire, to devour them. 38Moreover they have done this to Me: They have defiled My sanctuary on the same day and profaned My Sabbaths. 39For after they had slain their children for their idols, on the same day they came into My sanctuary to profane it; and indeed thus they have done in the midst of My house.
40“Furthermore you sent for men to come from afar, to whom a messenger was sent; and there they came. And you washed yourself for them, painted your eyes, and adorned yourself with ornaments. 41You sat on a stately couch, with a table prepared before it, on which you had set My incense and My oil. 42The sound of a carefree multitude was with her, and Sabeans were brought from the wilderness with men of the common sort, who put bracelets on their wrists and beautiful crowns on their heads. 43Then I said concerning her who had grown old in adulteries, ‘Will they commit harlotry with her now, and she with them?’ 44Yet they went in to her, as men go in to a woman who plays the harlot; thus they went in to Oholah and Oholibah, the lewd women. 45But righteous men will judge them after the manner of adulteresses, and after the manner of women who shed blood, because they are adulteresses, and blood is on their hands.
46“For thus says Sovereign Yahweh: ‘Bring up an assembly against them, give them up to trouble and plunder. 47The assembly shall stone them with stones and execute them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and burn their houses with fire. 48Thus I will cause lewdness to cease from the land, that all women (includes the Church today) may be taught not to practice your lewdness. 49They shall repay you for your lewdness, and you shall pay for your idolatrous sins. Then you shall know that I am Sovereign Yahweh.’””
Do you realize that if you have been grafted in to the natural tree of Israel, this passage in Ezekiel 23 may be speaking to you? Are you embracing Islam (Chrislam) in your church? Are you embracing homosexual church leadership? Are you embracing witchcraft through the Harry Potter evil books and movies? Do you embrace birth control and abortion? Do you encourage the breakdown of the family? Do you rebel against your parents, or encourage others to rebel against their parents? Do you profane the Sabbath? Do you profane Yahweh’s sanctuary (your body)? If so, you are also committing spiritual adultery against Yahweh. Notice two judgments in Ezekiel 23. One, in verse 24, the adulteresses’ enemies will judge them, and also in verse 45 righteous men will judge them. Matthew 19:28, “So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory (after His Second Coming), you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” Yeshua’s righteous apostles, those who have followed Him and not man’s traditions and corruptions, will judge all the tribes of Israel, that will include the grafted in ekklesia.
It’s obvious from Biblical history that Yahweh’s uses Israel’s enemies to punish her, to bring her to her knees before Yahweh. We may see this happen again real soon. The Palestinians and Iran and the entire world of Islam want Israel dead, that includes Christians. I believe we will soon see the final discipline of Israel. Yahweh is working circumstances to bring the lost sheep of the house of Israel into His fold. These events will usher in the tribulation period. If the Church is raptured before the tribulation begins, great, if not, get ready for a wild ride. The Book of Revelation makes it clear that all twelve tribes will be preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom during the tribulation.
Yahweh intends to cleanse His Land of His enemies and sin. Judgment Day is intended to prepare earth for the holy presence of Yeshua and Yahweh. Wickedness will cease on planet Earth for 1,000 years. The Church will be purged and cleansed. Without holiness, no one sees the Lord. The Church must be changed from mortal to immortal, purified. Do you read real news? The Orthodox Jews still persecute Messianic Jews and Christians in modern Israel. It looks like the Pharisees against Yeshua’s disciples all over again. This will have to change. Yahweh only has one Church, His body. The two stick whores will be converted and joined together in righteousness and holiness as the Bride of Messiah. Ezekiel 37:19-23, “say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.”’ 20And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes. 21“Then say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; 22and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king (Yeshua) shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. 23They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their Mighty One.”
Verse 29 shows the anti-semitism that is again rising across our globe. Yeshua stated this would happen in Matthew 10:22, “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.” He continues in verse 26, “Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.” The Church cannot hide its harlotry, its adulterous affairs are being broadcast to the world today. The Church is, unfortunately for her, reflecting the character of the world, instead of Yeshua’s character. Our sin must be exposed, so Yahweh can cleanse us of it. Hate speech or no, we must continue to expose the darkness of Satan’s lies. Not one sin, not one sinner will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. There is only One door into Yahweh’s Kingdom, and that is Yeshua. Going through Him means death to your self and your flesh on your very own execution stake. Salvation is a free offer to you, but discipleship will cost you everything. Yeshua comes into your life to take your life, to replace your old you with His life living through you.
Yeshua wants you healthy; if He blesses you with wealth, that’s wonderful, as long as you use it for the Kingdom, but health, wealth, and prosperity are not the focus of the Kingdom. Yeshua is the Kingdom. He is our focus; He is our Peace. Only seek Him, not health, wealth, peace and prosperity. We are called to suffering and affliction, to service His hurting body. As you die to your self, He resurrects in you, so you can serve the rest of His body. You are not saved for you, you’re saved for Him, to serve His people. Colossians 1:24, “I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Messiah, for the sake of His body, which is the church.”
Pray the Church repents of her whoredoms and returns to her calling as the Bride of Messiah. Look for and love the Master’s appearing. Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, that He will return today!
