Isaiah 11:10-11 ** And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and HIS resting place shall be glorious. It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set HIS hand again the second time to recover the remnant of HIS people who are left….

The Root of Jesse (offspring) is documented in the genealogy of the Messiah, Y’shua Jesus Christ (Luke 3:23-38, Matthew 1:1-17). The few that fully believe in the power of our Lord God (Yahweh) to create Adam from the dust of the earth, know that HE visited earth by impregnating a virgin woman. This is documented in the first four authors and books of the New Testament. Hundreds of years previous and before the destruction of the first great temple built by King Solomon, the Prophet Isaiah also documented this occurrence in prophesy, saying: “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call HIS name Immanuel (God with us * Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 8:8).

The standing banner, Immanuel, is the most distinguished and most powerful only man born of God with HIS Holy Spirit. Because HE entered the world as a poor and needy servant as most of the world then and now, He was rejected by the teachers of the law since they expected a mighty king to drive out the Romans. Psalms 2:12 reminds mankind to: Kiss the son (Jesus the Savior), lest HE is angry, and you perish in the way, when HIS wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in HIM.  ** The Pharisees, the teachers of the law of that era did not understand the time frame of the second coming of the Lord to recover the remnant of HIS people throughout the world. That time rapidly approaches in this era.  Nearly ninety percent of God’s chosen people, even before the coming of Immanuel, the Messiah, Y’shua, meaning Jesus Christ, were mixed blooded with Pagan Gentiles. The two returning tribes from Babylon referred those mixed bloods within Israel, as Samaritan. These hated ten tribes of Jacob were scattered throughout the Gentile Pagan world. Many of the remnants of HIS people are now being returned to Israel to receive the approaching second coming of Immanuel, Jesus Christ (Isaiah 11:11). The teachers of the law then as now go far astray as pointed out by the ministry of Jesus, saying in Mark 12:26-27, saying: “But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly mistaken.”

Luke 11:52 ** “Woe to you lawyers (Torah experts & teachers of the law)!  For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”  

 Sadly, many Bible teachers of this age have gotten worse than the Pharisees for they incorporate pagan traditions and teachings into a religion that is not the true words of God documented in the Holy Scriptures. In Mark 7:6-7, Jesus said: “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: This people honor ME with their lips, but their heart is far from ME. And in vain they worship ME, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”  (Also Matthew 15:9, Isaiah 45:19-20).  ** The word hypocrisy/ hypocrite are the Greek translations of hypokrisis and hypocrites meaning play acting or stage acting. This play acting or stage acting is mentioned numerous times in the Bible such as 1 Peter 2:1, Matthew 23:27-29, Galatians 2:13, etcetera. It should be noted that most of this evil world’s religions are constantly on stage, play acting their beliefs which are manmade, but not the commandments of God/ Yahweh/Jehovah.

1 John 4:8 ** He who does not love does not know God. For God is love. Verse 10-11 ** In this is love, not that we loved God, but that HE loved us and sent HIS only son to be the propitiation (atoning sacrifice) for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. ** No matter how dark it gets at night, our God is with each one that lives HIS way and not the way of this world of hate! No matter how lonely you feel or how your ministry is rejected, you are not alone for our God of Love knows even the number of hairs on your head (Luke 12:7). When we repent and commit our way to our Lord God (A do nai E Lo Him), HE becomes our banner/miracle and Lord of Peace within our hearts, our bodies and our souls. In Luke 15:10, Jesus advises: “…There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Bring the joy of God and HIS angels into your heart now! When you keep HIS love in the will of the spoken commandments, you have the opportunity to have a home with our Lord God and His beloved son, Jesus Christ (John 14:23)!  Do it now! Do it if even in confinement or in your bunk at night after lights are turned out. Wherever you are, our God will hear your plea to take you home to HIS eternal peace and joy!
