The word of the LORD that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. "The Sin of Samaria"Next we are going to discover where "watch mountain" (which is what Samaria means) lies today and learn "the naked truth" about what the actual "Sin of Samaria" is!
Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple.
For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places (churches) of the earth.
When He does come down and tread upon the high places of the land, it shall be an awesome sight, for as the name Micah declares, "Who is like Yah?" And who can stand against His will? Answer: No one! Therefore as it is written, every knee shall bow at the name of Jesus (Phil. 2:10).
There are two important things concerning "Samaria" and "Jerusalem" that one must know and understand in order to "See" the vision of the prophet Micah, whose name in Hebrew means "Who is Yah? or Who is like Yahveh?" The first thing one needs to know is that although these cities historically were the capitals of the House of Israel and the House of Judah respectively, the second and third verses in the Book of Micah let us know that his vision concerning Samaria and Jerusalem was for the same time as the visions of Joel and Amos and Daniel, etc., i.e. for "time of the end" when as Micah 1:3 states that " the LORD (shall) cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth." Remember also that Micah was a Morasthite from Moresheth-gath (Micah 1:14) which means "Possession of the Winepress" which further documents the timeframe of Micah's vision to the wise of this generation who know from studying God's Word that the "treading of the winepress" by He who "possesses the winepress" occurs at the coming of the King of kings and Lord of lords. Here it is:
Therefore all one really needs to know is where the House of Israel and the House of Judah are today. The problem is that most people are under the false assumption that Israel and Judah are one and the same when in fact they are NOT! Just look through the maps in the appendix of most any Bible and you will find a map similar to the one below which shows the nation of Israel and the nation of Judah as two separate nations with two separate capitals. Furthermore, Ezekiel 37 documents that they will NOT be joined back together into one "stick" until Jesus Christ returns.Rev. 19:15
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
 And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
You can see in the map that Samaria, which means "watch mountain", was the capital of the northern 10 tribes which comprised the House of Israel. Both secular and Biblical history record that those tribes were taken captive by the Assyrian and eventually scattered abroad. Do you know where they went*? If you do a little historical research you will find that they traveled north over the Caucasus Mountains and settled in Western Europe and in the British Isles and later many of them migrated to the Americas. They became known as Cimmerians, Celts, Saxons (Saac's sons, i.e. Isaac's sons), etc. Today the House of Israel basically makes up the Christian nations of the world with the leading nations of the United States and Great Britain representing the tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim respectively. Of course America is the largest nation of the House of Israel today and her "Capital Hill", her Samaria today, is Washington, DC.
Does it make sense to you that the United States
of America, the greatest superpower in the history of the world, would
be left out of endtime Biblical prophecy? Of course not! So if you

The second important thing we must learn and understand in order to "See" the vision of the prophet Micah is what the "sin of Samaria" is. This is extremely important for it is for this very reason, i.e. because of the "sin of Samaria", that the LORD comes forth out of His place to "tread the winepress" in His vineyard! However be forewarned that the "sin of Samaria" is a very difficult thing for most Christians to "see and understand" because they could not even begin to imagine that their church or church denomination could possibly be connected in any way to the apostasy which is so widespread among today's churchianity, even though Jesus Christ told us that the majority would be deceived by Christian ministers in these last days (Mk. 13:6). You see, by its very definition a person who is deceived does not know he or she is deceived. How could they possibly know? They are deceived! Have you ever met anyone who told you that what they believe to be true is actually not true? In other words, how could one believe that which he or she deems to be true, to also be in error, for then he would no longer believe it to be true, but rather error? Furthermore, if you do not know something then you do not know that you do not know it. For example, if you did not know that the Scots in their own Declaration of Independence known as "The Writ of Arbroath" trace their lineage back to their forefathers who came out of Egypt, then you did not know you did not know that. But now you do! Check it out.
Amos has told us that the 10 tribes of the house of Israel, which are headed today by the largest nation of those tribes, the United States of America, are not exempt from God's wrath in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and that they are also in big trouble with the Lord on His Day. Yes, we as nation have forgotten the God who unconditionally promised our father Abraham and confirmed through Isaac and Jacob that He would give us all that we needed in this great land "from sea to shining sea". And the birthright nations of Ephraim and Manasseh, England and America the Beautiful respectively, were to be the standard bearers of Christianity and we were to "Proclaim LIBERTY (not enslavement) throughout ALL the land and unto the inhabitants thereof". Those underlined words are taken directly from Leviticus 25:10 and are inscribed on America's Liberty Bell and relate to the jubilee year which also concerns ECONOMIC FREEDOM! Here is a question for you to consider: "How many church going Christians in America do you think have heard and understood these words contained in the Book of Amos, words that the LORD has specifically spoken unto them?" Listen to words of Amos, the "herdman", because MANY, in fact MOST, of the shepherds of the churches of our land do NOT teach the prophets to our Christian brothers and sisters! Yes, many, many Christians have faithfully gone to their churches for decades and have NEVER even read the Minor Prophets, much less studied them line by line. They are what Paul calls "babes", i.e. Baby Christians, which are "spiritually" what most of the Baby Boomers have remained. Here is Paul's incredulous admonition to the churchgoers of our land: Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Do you realize what this verse tells us? It says that EVERYTHING that is "going down" in this final generation is WRITTEN IN THE PROPHETS, revealed through them unto to those who love the Lord! That's right! There is Nothing that the Lord GOD is going to do that is LEFT OUT of the prophets!Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.
Now let's stop and consider that Amos' vision historically speaking was for the period two years before the great earthquake of Uzziah which we have shown from Zech. 14 is prophetic of that great earthquake two years "before the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee (Zech. 14:5)." Therefore this Book of Amos changes from prophecy to current events before the sound of the 6th trumpet when Satan is cast out of heaven. How up to date are you on current events? Jesus said "Take Heed" as in stop, look, and listen, five times in Mark 13 concerning the events of these last days.God's people of the house of Israel (THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) are basically well fed and have plenty to drink in this country and yet while they gather food for the homeless and needy (a good work for sure), they themselves are starving and dying of thirst, NOT for bread or for water, but of HEARING THE WORDS OF THE LORD! Are you able to help any of them, to feed them bread and meat from His Word, or give them to drink from His well of Living Water, or even just show them where the plumbline is? Amos tells us how many Christians are wandering from one church to another today, and not finding the truth from the Word of God taught.
No, there is nothing new under the sun. The curses Amos saw in our day were "promised" long, long ago (as we reckon time) to come upon us IF we listened and hearkened to men's voices instead of the Voice of the LORD thy God. Here is what our Father said would happen if we were drawn away from His Word:
The curses (pestilences) always follow "famine and thirst" which hopefully you have learned is for truth from His Word. He even promised back then to send a nation to afflict us and consume our productivity and oppress our people. And it has come to pass exactly as He said it would and Amos saw how bad things had become in our day. Therefore KNOW THIS and know it well. If you listen to preachers, teachers, pastors, politicians, popes, priests, elders or anybody else without CHECKING them out in God's Word, the probability that you are being fed and therefore eating bad fruit is humongous. Don't you know your very soul depends on it? Christians are so worried about suffering a little pain in the flesh that they listen to unscriptural, unfounded "fly away" stories, while they ignore His Word, which means they have FORSAKEN HIM and refused to listen to His Voice.Deut. 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
Do you want to be in that blessed Kingdom with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob and your loved ones who have passed on in the Lord? He has given you a choice. Now it is up to you.
Always remember these words of our Father through the herdman, Amos:
... Seek ye Me, and ye shall live:
 But seek not Bethel... i.e. church
 Seek the LORD, and ye shall live;
... lest He break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel. i. e. church
Christians, don't miss this study of Amos!

The Plan of God
If we look at Jeremiah's vision of the earth (Jer. 4:23-26) it was without form and void; and had no light and the mountains trembled and the hills moved. And there were no men and all the birds were gone. He said the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities were broken down because of the Lord's anger. He must have seen the earth as it is described in Gen. 1:2 and as Peter described it in 2 Peter 3: 6 because the earth has never been empty and waste and dark since the six days of God's activity as described in Gen. 1:3 to 2:25. The only time the sun and stars were not allowed to give light was the period before the six days. They have been giving light ever since. There never has been a time or will be a time when there were no men on earth since then. Yet Jeremiah said all the cities were gone and no men were there.
How can this be?
What was happening on earth between (Gen. 1:1), Isaiah's vision of the inhabited earth or (2 Peter 3:5 Peter's description of the earth standing out of the water and; (Gen. 1:2) Jeremiah's vision of the flooded, empty and void earth or (2 Peter 3:6) Peter's overflowed earth?

Note: The majority of the Judahaits were taken away by the Assyrians not the Babylonians! About 140 years later the remaining Judahites, a remnant were taken captive by the Babylonians. It was this remnant of Judahites and their descendants who were preserved to set the stage in the Holy Land for the coming of Christ the Messiah.
James addresses his epistle to all twelve tribes scattered in the

with Israel. James

We know this is end time prophesy because it is taken from Revelations chapters 2 and 3 where Jesus Christ reveals to John and therefore, us, the things which must shortly come to pass. Shortly, keep in mind was not shortly after Jesus revealed it but, shortly after the yet future date of the vision John was taken in the spirit to see. A vision of the future day of the Lord's return. A day which is fast approaching. Read Rev. 1:10 and pamphlet #4006
 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
We know that Tyrus means "rock" with a small "r" and the king of Tyrus refers to Satan who we already learned wanted to be "king", like our Rock, who is Jesus Christ. But as it is written in Deuteronomy chapter 32, which is the Song of Moses referred to in Rev. 15 that the overcomers will be singing at the return of Christ, this "little rock" is NOT our Rock: Deut. 32:31 "For their rock is not as our Rock..."
However, this "rock" was once a very honored and esteemed individual by our Father and all of His children too! That would include you and me. There is no mention of Satan having a little red suit and a pitchfork, is there? He is very handsome and very charismatic, a real charmer. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
First we see that Satan was created just like every other son of God. But, we see that a "workmanship" was also prepared for him. What in the world is that? Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship".[13 ... continued] every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Lucifer was given a very important DUTY or POSITION. Do you know what it was? It may surprise some! Notice in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him. This simply means that Satan WORE the "Breastplate of a Priest of God", a very high position indeed! That's right, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father. You see, these stones listed in verse 13 are EXACTLY the same stones that the Levitical priests of Israel wore. Let's read the description of the priest's breastplate so we know for sure. (You can compare stone for stone if you like.)mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak); properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
Note to the deeper scholar: This entire third row is missing from Ezekiel 28:13 in Hebrew, but it is supplied in the Septuagint.Exodus 28:17-21
And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.
 And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
 And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
 And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
So we now understand that this "morning star", Lucifer, was a high priest of God even over the children of God. Think about it! Do you really think this man Lucifer/Satan will have any problem convincing un-knowledgeable proclaiming Christians, that he is indeed God! And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.
But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things
All things that He foretold us includes how to tell the difference between Himself and the highly esteemed archangel priest (Satan, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil) who is full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty that hast been in Eden the garden of God where he first started to deceive flesh and blood man. (Eve and Adam)
He told Paul in: 1 Cor. 15:44 how we will know for sure if it is He, Himself, or if it is Satan that you are seeing here on earth!
What happens to our bodies at the last trump?
Would you like to know a secret or mystery?
The apostle Paul is about to show us one.
In 1 Cor. 15 (read the entire chapter) Paul explains that you have two bodies, a flesh body and a spiritual body.
1 Cor. 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
He's talking about you and me.
When our flesh
body dies we are changed into our spiritual body
and go to be with the Lord.
Absent from this animal type body, present with the Lord.
This is basic Christianity 101.
Now for the mystery! Paul is speaking...
Pay close attention here! This is a mystery (Gk.= musterion, secret or mystery) to most people.1 Cor. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery;
Here's how Dr. Moffat translates it:We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1 Cor. 15:51 Here is a secret truth for you: not all of us are to die, but all of us are to be changed -
Question - Changed to what?
Answer - To our spiritual bodies!
When and how are we going to be changed?
We return to the King's James translation:
Question: What happens at the last trump, 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.
Jesus Christ returns and we "who are alive and
remain" are INSTANTLY,
in the twinkling of an eye,
changed from our flesh body to our spiritual body.
after Christ has been here awhile,
but instantly at the sound of the trump!
Now, we learned in study
#1452 that the son of perdition,
Satan, the spurious messiah, comes FIRST,
at the six trump.
Do you know what that means?
You guessed it!
If you are still in the flesh,
if you still bleed when pricked with a pin,
then Jesus Christ hasn't returned.
Or, do you see grandma, sitting over there in her rocking chair. If she appears to be older than you, you are still in your flesh and blood body. Christ has not yet returned!
Now you know the secret!
You will still be in the flesh when Satan shows up here on earth, claiming to be Christ, i.e. during the tribulation but will be changed instantly into your spirit body the moment Christ really returns!
If you still bleed when pricked with a pin you are still in the flesh,
meaning, the real Jesus Christ still hasn't returned.
And you know what? Since God is in TOTAL CONTROL of all things in both heaven and earth, and since He loves you, His child, so very, very much, if you turn to Him with all your heart and mind and soul and seek Him through His Word, He will see to it that your Gospel Armor is "fire proof" and you have spiritual Gospel Armor Boots (GAB) to squish locusts and scorpions. He can do it because He has ALL POWER!
So when He says He gives you all power over the enemy, YOU'VE GOT IT!Matthew 28:18
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
So the question is...Luke 10:19
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
The answer is: You know! If you turn to Him, you can have His blessings right now! There will be plenty of corn and wine for you for your Father will see to it that the death angel, Apollyon, and his locust army Passes Over your house because you are His child and you now dwell in His vineyard where scorpions and locusts dare not go!Joel 2:14
Who knoweth if He will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?

Someone that appears to be like God will come to earth, and he will be worshipped as God, and declare himself to be God, only this false-christ will be Satan, the "man of sin". 2800 years ago God revealed to us, and gave us an example in the first Babylon to warn us as to how it shall be at the coming of Satan in his role of the spurious messiah. If we know how it shall be, it will not be a surprise to us when the things similar to what happened in Babylon takes place before our eyes.

"MESSIAH. THE GOOD SHEPHERD, IN DEATH"
Messiah, His Sufferings.
Jesus hung there on the cross before His death,
We believe, He stated this entire 22nd. chapter of Psalms, begining with verse one, until the very last verse, when He said, "He hath done this".
Is it any wonder that one of the malefactors who were crucified alongside Him, seeing all of it come to pass as written, believed on Him and ask, "Lord, remember me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom."
Many pastors teach that God actually forsook Christ as He hung there on the cross.
What a lie!
How could our Heavenly Father forsake His own Son at the time He was paying the price for our sins?
It is stupidity to even think such a thing; it's blasphemy. It even shows their ignorance concerning the Scriptures.
For example: Every time Jesus Christ spoke to the Father,
He called Him Father,
Not one place where he spoke to the Father, in the whole Bible did He call Him anything but Father. So it is written here in the first verse as Jesus was nailed to the cross, that these words were spoken just prior to His death
Matthew 27:46 "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?"
This is a bad translation.
"To the chief Musician, upon Aijeleth Shahar"; "A Psalm of David". "Aijeleth Shahar" means "The Hind of Day-dawn", this is looking to the Day-dawn of the Messiah's Coronation, which is the subject of Psalms 22. the hind is an animal that runs free, and Christ was about to free many souls in captivity.
The kingdom will now be bought and paid for in full.
Psalms 22:1 "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art Thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?"
The notes on this verse is given above,
Of course God did not forsake His Son, and if you believe that He did, then it weakens your faith.
Our Savior was teaching even as His blood was flowing out of His veins.
That was the payment for your sins.
Jesus was not
thinking of Himself at the time,
but was quoting Scripture.
He was quoting from the 22nd. Psalm.
"Roaring" in the Hebrew text "sha`ag" would be better translated "lamentation" as spoken of a lion, and of thunder. Roaring is used to give a solemn emphasis.
Psalms 22:2 "O my God, I cry in the daytime, but Thou hearest not; And in the night season, and am not silent."
Lord, day or night I get no rest. We all go through a little trial at times, and it was a serious trial that Jesus went through on the cross. Jesus knew while He hung there, that Father would never desert Him, and in these words Jesus was setting the example for us living today.
When the times get tough, and the testing comes,
Our heavenly Father will never forsake you either.
Psalms 22:3 "But Thou art holy, O Thou That inhabitest the praises of Israel."
This is the entire creation.
Psalms 22:4 "Our fathers trusted in Thee: They trusted, and Thou didst deliver them."
Father brought the Israelites forth out of Egypt and led them through the wilderness and into the promise land.
Psalms 22:5 "They cried unto Thee, and were delivered: They trusted in Thee, and were not confounded."
When the oppression became too great in Egypt, Israel cried unto You Father and they were delivered.
When Israel finally
trusted or confided in you Father,
they were not disgraced.
When you believe in Father God, in these end times, you will not be disgraced either.
You absolutely will not be deceived.
We can get strength from these words given from the cross.
Jesus hung there on that cross quoting all those things that were
written 1000 years prior to His crucifixion, is it any wonder that one
of the malefactors who were crucified alongside Him,
seeing all of
it come to pass as written, believed on Him and ask, "Lord, remember
me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom."
Luke 23:42 "And he said unto Jesus, "Lord, remember me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom."
This malefactor turned to Jesus and asked for Jesus to remember him when He entered into His kingdom. He was truthful and sincere.
Luke 23:43 "And Jesus said unto him, "Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with Me in paradise."
God made this a promise to you and me living in this final generation.
Psalms 22:6 "But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised of the People."
In translating this verse, it needs to be adjusted to match the Hebrew text.
this word "worm"
in the Hebrew text is "tola",
and is not the ordinary word for
but the crimson "coccus"
from which the scarlet die was obtained.
Hence rended "Scarlet" as in
"And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair."
There was a lot of scarlet around Jesus as He hung there on the cross.
"and no man" In the Hebrew text was not "enosh, for an ordinary man,
but it was "ish" a "great man" and at times is even given in meaning to an angel.
Satan is called "ish" in Isaiah 14 in the Hebrew text.
So it should read; "But I am in scarlet, and I am no great man or angel,"
for Jesus had come in the flesh to pay the price for yours and my sins.
While in His flesh and blood body, He was not supernatural, in the sense of being in His spiritual body where the pain, of the flesh, would not be felt.
Jesus felt all the pain, as the crown of thorns were placed on his head and the whip laid the stripes on His back.
He felt the nails being run through his hands and feet, and as His bone joints were stretch as he hung there on the cross.
Isaiah 53 gives us all the detail as to how Jesus was "despised of the people" as He hung there on the cross.
He did it so that you and I could come back to our heavenly Father with the barrier of sin removed from us.
Psalms 22:7 "All they that see me laugh me to scorn: They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,"
Jesus hung there on the cross,
the people that walked by and looked up at Jesus
and laughed and shouted out their scorn.
Matthew 27:29-31; "And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon His head, and a reed in His right hand: and they bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"  "And they spit upon Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the head."  "And after that they had mocked Him, they took the robe off from Him, and put his own raiment on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him." 
Remember that this Psalms 22 was written a thousand years before this even happened to our Lord Jesus Christ.
It is prophecy from David's time.
In Matthew 27:39 "And they that passed by reviled Him, wagging their heads."
Psalms 22:8 "He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: Let Him deliver him, seeing He delighted in him."
Almighty Father used the Kenite High priest to say these word at the time of the fulfillment of this prophecy.
The one in authority over those that murdered our Lord.
Matthew 27:41-43; "Likewise also the chief priests mocking Him, with the scribes and elders, said,"  "He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Israel, let Him now come down off the cross, and we will believe Him."  "He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, If He will have Him: for He said `I am the Son of God.' " 
Even to the exact words this prophecy was fulfilled.
Psalms 22:9 "But Thou art he That took me out of the womb: Thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts."
Father, even as a baby You watched over me and kept me safe.
Psalms 22:10 "I was cast upon Thee from the womb: Thou art my god from my mother's belly."
This speaks of He that was the Firstfruit, and even to God's election to this day.
Psalms 22:11 "Be not far from me; for trouble is near; For there is none to help."
There were none to help because every one had deserted Jesus. Even Peter the rock had denied Christ three time, and all the rest of the disciples were gone.
Matthew 26:73-74 "And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, "Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee."  "Then began he to curse and to sware, saying, "I know not the man." And immediately the cock crew." 
As Christ hung there on that cross there was not one person to help Him, except our Father who did not desert Him.
Psalms 22:12 "Many bulls have compassed me: Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round."
"Bashan" is know as being the strongest of the bulls. From the aggressors to the chief priest were the bulls that had compassed around Christ as He hung there on the cross.
Psalms 22:13 "They gaped upon me with their mouths, As a ravening and a roaring lion."
As Pilate offered the choice to the mob, Barabbas or Jesus, the mob cried out "Let Him be crucified"
Matthew 27:23 "And the governor said, "Why, what evil hath He done?" But they cried out the more, saying, "Let Him be crucified."
Psalms 22:14 "I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax; It is melted in the midst of my bowels."
the Christ's life blood was draining from Him,
His bones jerked out of their sockets,
as he hung there on that cross.
Jesus was run through His side with the spear,
the water flowed out and death would come shortly.
Psalms 22:15 "My strength is dried up like a potsherd; And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; And Thou hast brought me into the dust of death."
In John 19:28 "After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, "I thirst."
Yet He refused to take the or the vinegar that was offered to Him.
So this day has almost ended, by the time of this verse. Jesus physical flesh body was approaching the death of this flesh and blood life.
Psalms 22:16 "For dogs have compassed me: The assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: They pierced my hands and my feet."
"dogs" are my enemies,
and these enemies of Christ pierced him as they nailed his hands and feet to the cross.
Psalms 22:17 "I may tell all my bones: They look and stare upon me."
As Jesus hung there, the people stared upon Him; the ladies stood by and watched,
Matthew 27:55-56 "And the women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto Him:"  "Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Jose, and the mother of Zebedee's children." 
Psalms 22:18 "They part my garments among them, And cast lots upon my vesture."
"Casting lots" meant that they were gambling for His cloths.
Matthew 27:35 "And they crucified Him, and parted His garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, "The parted My garments among them, and upon My vesture did they cast lots."
This was prophecy being fulfilled
Again, remember, This 22nd. Psalm was written 1000 years prior to the crucifixion!.
This chapter should give you assurance that just as our Heavenly Father fulfilled each small detail of this event of Jesus Crucifixion; the events dealing with the end times with Satan coming to earth, as the false-christ will be fulfilled also.
Satan will appear first, and then after the world has gone out following his world system, then Christ shall come to end this earth age of the flesh just as it is written and prophesied in His Word.
This is why it becomes a must to know the events of our day as it is written in the manuscripts, for that is as the events will take place.
Those that know will not be deceived.
They will endure until the end and be saved!
Psalms 22:19 "But be not Thou far from me, O Lord: O my strength, haste thee to help me."
His death is coming very soon now.
Psalms 22:20 "Deliver my soul from the sword; My darling from the power of the dog."
This word "darling" in the Hebrew text means "soul".
"Deliver my soul from the sword,
My only soul from the power of my enemies."
Psalms 22:21 "Save me from the lion's mouth: For Thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns."
You have strength in the Spirit, as you call out in prayer;
"Father help me".
This is true for each of us even today.
God is there watching and listen to us every moment of the day.
Being a true Christian is being a reality.
Psalms 22:22 "I will declare Thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee."
My fellow Christian, as a believer and follower of Christ, this is exactly what you and I are suppose to do. Jesus fulfilled His duty and accomplished His mission, and now the brethren are to declare it in the midst of the congregation, and Praise His holy name. What Name? YHVH, the Almighty Father, the sacred name of God. This is given in Hebrews 2:11-13.
Hebrews 2:11 "For both He That sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of One: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren, "
are in Him and He is in you,
than you are both brethren.
Hebrews 2:12 "Saying, "I will declare Thy Name unto My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto Thee."
This name is the Lord's name, YHVH the sacred name.
Hebrews 2:13 "And again, "I will put my trust in Him." and again, "Behold, I and the children which God hath given Me."
These children are all
those that are chosen,
that have the eyes to see and the ears to hear the truth of God's Word.
So now we see exactly why Christ came to this earth.
Hebrews 2:14 "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil."
Just as your soul came into your body at conception, so also Christ's soul entered into his flesh body in the virgin Mary at conception, and Jesus lived his life in the flesh for the purpose of dying on the cross, and destroying the power of death that the devil held on us.
That was the purpose of Christ shedding of His blood.
Christ going to the cross was no accident, for it had to happen for you and I to have eternal life.
let me ask;
Do you share His name in the congregation of your brethren?
If you love them, you will.
Psalms 22:23 "Ye that fear the Lord praise Him; All ye the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; And fear Him, all ye the seed of Israel."
If you love God and respect Him, and are of the natural seed of Israel, then glorify Him and respect Him with reverence.
If you believe on That Son,
than you become a child of Abraham.
Psalms 22:24 "For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Neither hath He hid His face from him; But when he cried unto Him, He heard."
Did you get that?
Father has never hid his face from His Son, not even when He hung there on the cross and the sins of the world were placed upon Him.
Did God reject Jesus for a short period?
Now read this again: "He [Father] hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted [Jesus the Christ]; Neither hath He [Father] hid His [Father] face from Him [Jesus];" It is blasphemy for someone to claim that the Father turned His back on the Son, Jesus the Christ.
This is one of the points that we must boldly make a stand when the claim is made that Father turned His face from His only begotten Son, as He hung there on the cross.
Psalms 22:25 "My praise shall be of Thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear Him."
God is going to remember you after this earth age, when you give reverence to His Son for going to the cross.
Psalms 22:26 "The meek shall eat and be satisfied: They shall praise the Lord that seek Him: Your heart shall live for ever."
Those that are humble before Almighty God shall have eternal life and praise the Lord. By taking a stand for Him, He will give you eternal life. This is why it is important that we put a stop to the blasphemy that is taught in the churches today. That YHVH the heavenly Father deserted His only Begotten Son while He hung there on the cross.
Psalms 22:27 "All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee."
This will happen at the sounding of the seventh trumpet, and they every knee will bow before Jesus Christ.
It is important that we understand His word and believe on His name.
Have Faith in His Word, and the confidence that you will put actions to these words. The end of this earth age is very close and far closer than most Christians think.
Psalms 22:28 "For the kingdom is the Lord's: And He is the Governor among the nations."
Jesus will come to rule the earth and all those that are in it.
Revelation 20:6 "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of god and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years."
This kingdom is the Millennium age kingdom when Jesus is right here on earth, and the entire world is part of that kingdom.
Psalms 22:29 "All they that be fat upon the earth shall eat and worship: All they that go down to the dust shall bow before Him: And none can keep alive his own soul."
We are taking about souls here, not physical bodies.
Not even Satan can keep his soul alive one moment following the great white throne judgment.
Revelation 20:10 "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are..."
Satan and all those that follow him, their souls will end up in in the lake of fire.
This is the second death, the death of the soul.
The first death is the death of your physical body, but that is only a shadow of the real death.
see Live Link to- Psalms 23
Psalms 22:30 "A seed shall serve Him; It shall be counted to the Lord for a generation."
This "seed" is God's elect, those with eyes to see and ears to hear with understanding all of God's Word.
We are living in that generation that this verse is talking about, for only then will the elect be face to face with Satan and his fallen angels in person.
There will be a certain number of God's people that can be counted upon to make that stand.
Remember when Jesus was carrying His cross up the hill to His death, He said to the daughter of Jerusalem, "weep not for me".
He was thinking of the day that is coming when He stated "blessed are they that are barren."
Those that haven't taking part in the first marriage feast with Satan the false-christ.
Luke 23:28-29 "But Jesus turning unto them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem,, weep not for Me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children."  "For, Behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, `Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.' " 
Those that give such are the rapture theory boys, and the Kenites that help them in their translations.
Psalms 22:31 "They shall come, and shall declare His righteousness unto a People that shall be born, That He hath done this."
These people that shall be born to our generation. "That He hath done this" in the Hebrew text is "It is finished".
John 19:30 "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."
Even to His very last words, these words were directed to us, that we can know that Father is true to His Word even to our generation.
In paying for your sins with His life, He destroyed the devil, and gave us the assurance that He will be with us to the sounding of seventh and last trumpet of this earth age.
Then He shall return and we shall reign as joint heirs with Him in Jesus Christ's heavenly kingdom.
This generation is the generation of the fig tree that shall not pass away until all the prophecies of this earth age have been fulfilled.
God has given each of instruction as to what we are to do through His Word when we see these things coming to pass.
Matthew 24 tells us of the seven seals that must come to pass before His return, and these are also called the seven trumpets of the book of Revelation.
They are the events of the last generation that are suppose to be sealed in our minds, after Israel has gone back, that warns us of the Satan's deceptive activities.
By not having them sealed in your mind is what is referred to as "the mark of the beast". It is what is called the "great deception" or "Apostacy"; the falling away from the truth of God's word in favor of lies, traditions and deceptions.
Part of that great lie beside the rapture, is the statement that "Almighty God forsook His son while he hung there on the cross."
Watch out fellow Christian, what you accept as the truth, for truth will be only in the mind of the sealed when Satan arrives here on earth.
The lies of Satan will be believed by most proclaiming Christians, even in most Christian church houses.
If you would like to take communion at this time then get the ingredients, bread and wine, or that which you have available such as grape juice or even water and a cracker.
If you have need of healing whether it is physical, spiritual, or both, now is the time to take it to Him. Isaiah 53:5 reads "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
Then on the night that Jesus was betrayed He took the bread and blessed and brake it, and gave them to His disciples.
1 Cor. 11:23
For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
(Partake of the bread and talk to Him, which is to commune with Him.)

If you have need of repentance in your life, now is also the time to open up and be honest with Him and ask for His forgiveness. Matthew 26:28 "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."
1 Cor. 11:25
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
(Partake of the wine and turn to your Father, who loves you very much, much more than you can ever know.)Jesus Christ's body received the stripes, and we receive the healing. If you ever want to take Communion at home, this is the chapter that we are to remember, and read for this important time. Read these Scriptures from the twenty third verse on, and partake of the bread and the cup in Jesus name. This makes a good home Communion. That healing is just as sure today as it was in Jesus day, and we do it all "in remembrance of Him".
