Joel 1:15 commentary


 Alas for the day! for The Day of YHWH [the Time of Jacob’s Trouble/the Great Tribulation] is at hand Revelation 1:1-3 

Comments: Joel 1:15 Joel used the same wording as John used in The Revelation. This shows that something being “at hand” or “shortly coming to pass” holds a vastly different meaning to our Creator than it does to his human creation.  One day with the Lord is as one thousand years and one thousand years is as one day.

Joel 1:2 commentary

 1: The word of YHWH that came to Joel the son of Pethuel 2: Hear this ye old men and give ear all ye inhabitants of the land Has this been in your days or even in the days of your ancestors?

Comments: Joel 1:2 James Strong’s transliteration of the Hebrew word 'āḇ, generally means “father” but not always. 

The KJV translates Strong's H1 in the following manner:

father (1,205x), chief (2x), families (2x), desire (1x), fatherless (with H369) 

(1x), forefathers  (with H7223) (1x), patrimony (1x), prince (1x), principal (1x).

Outline of Biblical Usage: father of an individual, of God as father of his people, head or founder of a household, group, family, or clan…ancestor. 

Hebrew, like virtually every other language, including English, is an androcentric (male centered) language. That means there are some masculine words that of necessity include female members of the human race. 'Ā is one of those words. Context decides which of the above listed usages is the correct literal translation of the Hebrew words (אֲבֹ תֵ יכֶ ם abthi·km).   

Abthi·km, the word most Bibles have translated as “your fathers,” is a plural word that has several literal translations, depending on context. It is even translated as “desire” in Job 34:36 KJV. Other versions translate the word as “would that.” One interlinear translates the singular counterpart of Abthi·km as, “will of me.” The plural Abthi·km includes the entire nation of Israel, and the context of Joel 1:2 demands the word be translated as ancestor, and not as father, in this verse, YHWH is speaking, here, to all the inhabitants of the Promised Land, at least one half of which were women. And these women were also progenitors, which is one of the biblical applications of the word ā, and accurately translated as “ancestors” in Joel 1:2.

Isaiah 14:29-32 commentary

 29: Rejoice not thou whole Palestina because the rod of him that smote thee is broken for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent

Comments: Isaiah 14:29-32 The first people to ever be called Palestinians were Jews, and it was YHWH Elohim who first called them that.

 30: And the firstborn of the poor shall feed and theneedy shall lie down in safety and will kill thy root with famine and he shall slay thy remnant 

Comments: Isaiah 14:29-32 Only physical Israel, Jacob, is ever called the “remnant.” There is no such thing as a “remnant” of the Body of Christ. The Boby of Christ is ONE as Jesus and the Father are ONE. Unlike the nation of Israel—Jacob, the Body of Christ can never be fractured.

31: Howl O gate cry O city Thou whole Palestina art dissolved For there shall come from the north a smoke and none shall be alone in his appointed times 32: What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That YHWH hath founded Zion and the poor of his people shall trust in it

1 Corinthians 15:51-55 Commentary


51:  Behold I shew you a mystery We shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed 52: In a moment in the twinkling of an eye at the last trump For the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed 53: For this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality 54: So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption and this mortal shall have put on immortality then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written Death is swallowed up in victory 55: O death where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory? Hosea 13:14

Comments: 1 Corinthians 15:51-55 In this verse, the word sleep means to die. The bodies of Believers only sleep in death until the resurrection—their souls do not sleep 2 Corinthians 5:6-8. It is written that it is appointed to mortals once to die, and after that, the judgement Hebrew 9:27. There will be no extra chances via reincarnation. But wait, Paul wrote that we would not all die. This appears to be a brand-new revelation, something that had never been written before. Yet the preacher in Ecclesiastes wrote that there was nothing new under sun, and Isaiah wrote that there would be no new light Isaiah 8:19-20, that unless something had already been written, the writer of any so-called, new light had no light in them. Yet Peter compared Paul’s letters to scriptures 2 Peter 3:16, and Paul wrote in them, what appears to be new light. Paul was not given new light in the sense of things brand new that had never been written in the Law and the Prophets, which Jesus appealed to when he was tempted by Satan Matthew 4:4-10. Paul was given an abundance of revelation 2 Corinthians 12:7 into that which had already been written. The rapture? Enoch was not found. His mortality was changed to immortality. Enoch was caught up. Regarding the Body of Christ, Paul was given revelation into Enoch’s blessing, that his experience of not dying, that Enoch's experience of being caught up 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 would be ours as well.

1 Samuel 8 commentary

 1: And it came to pass when Samuel was old that he made his sons judges over Israel

Comments: 1 Samuel 8:1 Now why did Samuel make his corrupt sons [1 Samuel 8:3] judges of Israel when he knew their lack of character? Turns out that Samuel was the same kind of father as Eli. Samuel was good man, but he followed Eli’s poor example of parental permissiveness.

2: Now the name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second Abiah They were judges in Beer-sheba 3: And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. 4: [cause and effect] Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together and came to Samuel unto Ramah 5: And said unto him Behold thou art old and thy sons walk not in thy ways now make us a king to judge us like all the nations

Comments: 1 Samuel 8:5 The elders were worldly and faithless. They were a free people under the theocracy of the GOOD Lord. The lords/gods of the nations surrounding them were not good. They required human sacrifice. YHWH Elohim did not. HE was the creator of their nation Isaiah 43:1 and their king, but though they were promised great blessings, they wanted none of it. They wanted to be like all the other people of their world and serve an autocrat. Why didn’t they simply demand that Samuel depose his corrupt sons? …or perhaps they had and Samuel had refused. Either way, it was a bad situation, and the elders of Israel certainly had a better choice than to demand such a radical change of government.

6: But the thing displeased Samuel when they said Give us a king to judge us And Samuel prayed unto the LORD 7: And the LORD said unto Samuel Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee for they have not rejected thee but they have rejected ME that I should not reign over them 8: According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day wherewith they have forsaken me and served other gods so do they also unto thee 9: Now therefore hearken unto their voice howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them

·         10: And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king 11: And he said This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you

·         He will take your sons and appoint them for himself for his chariots and to be his horsemen and some shall run before his chariots 12: And he will appoint him captains over thousands and captains over fifties and will set them to ear his ground and to reap his harvest and to make his instruments of war and instruments of his chariots

·         13: And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries and to be cooks and to be bakers

·         14: And he will take your fields and your vineyards and your olive yards even the best of them and give them to his servants

·         15: And he will take the tenth of your seed and of your vineyards and give to his officers and to his servants

·         16: And he will take your menservants and your maidservants and your goodliest young men and your asses and put them to his work

·         17: He will take the tenth of your sheep and ye shall be his servants

 18: And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you and the LORD will not hear you in that day 19: Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel and they said Nay but we will have a king over us 20: That we also may be like all the nations and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles 21: And Samuel heard all the words of the people and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD 22: And the LORD said to Samuel Hearken unto their voice and make them a king [Hosea 13:11] And Samuel said unto the men of Israel Go ye every man unto his city 

Hosea 13:4 Jesus is THE ALMIGHY GOD

Yet I [am] YHWH your Elohim [who brought you] from the land of Egypt and you shall know no god but Me for there is no Savior beside Me 

Jesus is YHWH ELOHIM: Isaiah 43:10-11 

Jesus is the Almighty: John 1:1. John 8:24

Jesus God of the Burning Bush: Eternal Father & Beloved Son ( 

Hosea 12:12 The Bride of Christ


 And Jacob fled into the country of Syria and Israel served for a wife and for a wife he kept sheep

Comments: Hosea 12:12 Jesus also served for a wife. He left his glory in Heaven, where he was known as THE WORD John 1:1, and, becoming the SON Psalm 2:6, Hebrews 1:5, took on inferior human flesh. He became clay Genesis 2:7, so that he could submit to a horrific death in order to ransom all humanity John 3:16, and, in doing, betrothed himself to a Bride Revelation 19:7.

For God so LOVED the word he gave his only BEGOTTEN son that WHOSEVER believes on Him SHOULD NOT PERISH but have Everlasting LIFE
