Notes From This Study:
1 Corinthians 10:11
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
11 These things happened to them to serve as an example, and they were written down to instruct us, on whom the ends of the ages have come.
Hebrew Word Studies:
The English word “sign” in Hebrew is spelled: Aleph – Vav – Tav
- Yeshua is the Aleph – Tav (beginning and end – Alpha/Omega)
- Vav = nail = 6 (Yeshua was crucified with 3 nails = 666 – became the curse)
- Sign = the nailed Aleph Tav
The English word “jealous” (as in Exodus 34:14) is spelled: Qof – Nun – Aleph
- Qof = Future
- Nun = Life
- Apleph = God
Thus, “jealous” means “Future Life (with) God” – that’s why He is jealous for us! He is a husband who desires to be with His bride, whom He loves dearly and wants to spend eternity with.
Christians and their “golden calves”:
The following is a portion taken from my book, Babylon Rising: And The First Shall Be Last:
When it comes to things like Christmas and Easter, one of the responses I hear most when making comments like that is, “But that’s not what it means to me…” followed by some excuse about not thinking about other gods, but rather focusing on Christ while doing what they do during those holidays. But it really doesn’t matter what it means to us, it matters what it means to God!
While Christians argue that they are not worshipping or even thinking about any other gods on Christmas and Easter; claiming that their hearts and minds are solely on Christ, I have to ask how are those justifications any different from the rationale of the Israelites in the wilderness when they set up the altar with the golden calf?
Now when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people assembled about Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us a god who will go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” Aaron said to them, “Tear off the gold rings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” Then all the people tore off the gold rings which were in their ears and brought them to Aaron. He took this from their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool and made it into a molten calf; and they said, “This is your god, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.” Now when Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow shall be a feast to the LORD.” So the next day they rose early and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
– Exodus 32:1-6 (NASB) [emphasis mine]
Notice what they did. They set something up and declared that the works of their hands was God – the One who brought them up from their slavery in Egypt! And they worshiped a representation of a pagan deity, proclaiming that it “shall be a feast to the LORD!” The word “LORD” there in English is translated from the Hebrew word YHVH – the true name of God. Thus, they were doing as the heathen do – and doing it in the name of YHVH while claiming that He was the one they were thinking about as they brought gifts, ate, drank and made merry!
That is exactly what Christians all over the world are doing with Christmas! They are associating the Son of God with traditions that have always been attributed to the false sun gods of antiquity and participating in rituals that have nothing to do with the God of the Bible or His Son, Yeshua the Christ. If you keep reading about that story in Exodus, you will see that God was extremely unhappy about that sort of thing! It didn’t matter what the people thought. Clearly it mattered more what He thought about it all.
“ET” (Aleph – Tav) Watch:
Yeshua is the “ET” (Aleph – Tav) found all through the Scriptures. One of the places He shows up is in Exodus 33:2 as the “angel” that goes on ahead to wipe out the Canaanites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. I believe this story is picked up later by the prophet Amos:
Yet I destroyed the Amorites before them, though they were tall as the cedars and strong as the oaks. I destroyed their fruit above and their roots below.
– Amos 2:9
Yahoshua and Yeshua the Giant Killers:
Thus, it would appear that Yeshua took out the really big ones in the land, leaving the smaller ones like Og of Bashan for Joshua (Yahoshua ben Nun) and the Israelites to take out:

The Tribulation Protection Plan:
Exodus 34:21-24 (NLT)
21 “You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but on the seventh day you must stop working, even during the seasons of plowing and harvest.
22 “You must celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the first crop of the wheat harvest, and celebrate the Festival of the Final Harvest at the end of the harvest season. 23 Three times each year every man in Israel must appear before the Sovereign, the Lord, the God of Israel. 24 I will drive out the other nations ahead of you and expand your territory, so no one will covet and conquer your land while you appear before the Lord your God three times each year.
Leviticus 26:3-13 (NRSV)
3 If you follow my statutes and keep my commandments and observe them faithfully, 4 I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.5 Your threshing shall overtake the vintage, and the vintage shall overtake the sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and live securely in your land. 6 And I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and no one shall make you afraid; I will remove dangerous animals from the land, and no sword shall go through your land. 7 You shall give chase to your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8 Five of you shall give chase to a hundred, and a hundred of you shall give chase to ten thousand; your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9 I will look with favor upon you and make you fruitful and multiply you; and I will maintain my covenant with you. 10 You shall eat old grain long stored, and you shall have to clear out the old to make way for the new. 11 I will place my dwelling in your midst, and I shall not abhor you. 12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be my people. 13 I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be their slaves no more; I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect.
