WHERE WILL YAHSHUA LAY HIS HEAD?
"The foxes have holes,
And the birds of the air have nests;
But the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."
This is the answer Yahshua gave to a scribe who expressed that he wanted to follow the "Teacher." A scribe was a highly educated man who was an expert in legal matters. Scribes filled the role as keepers of records, advisers in state affairs, and interpreters of law. Thus we see here a man coming to the "Teacher," who undoubtedly excelled in knowledge, in mental skill, and obviously had a quest to learn and understand matters. So when this learned man came to Yahshua, do you think He was simply telling this educationally skilled individual that he would have to sleep out under the stars and use a rock for a pillow, that he could not expect to find lodging if he followed Him? Not at all.
A gentleman named Paul Bailey pointed out the following basic truth found in this verse; but we will take this truth, expand it considerably, and discover its application to the second Remnant.
When Yahshua answered this scribe with - "Foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head" - He was fashioning an answer relative to the type of man to whom He was addressing - a highly learned man. Yahshua was not talking about travel accommodations; something that was not of concern to either man. Foxes and holes, birds of the air and nests, both speak of the state of the knowledge of earthly man, particularly relative to the kingdom of God about which Yahshua taught. From under the earth where foxes burrow, to the heavens above where birds nest, the knowledge of man regarding the kingdom of God is entirely corrupt. The vast significance of this truth is evidenced by the fact that Yahshua was responding to a man who, in the eyes of the world, was superior in knowledge. But how did Yahshua reckon his knowledge? As foxes and birds, both of which bear the testimony of corruption (Song of Songs 2:15, Luke 13:32, Matthew 13:32). And what is Yahshua's response to those scribes of Christianity who come to Him with their great "knowledge"? It is nothing more than foxes and birds!
The reality of these foxes and birds in the kingdom is evident when we look at events like the Reformation when Yahweh sought to cleanse His house, to clear out some of these foul ideas. The stark reality of these foxes and birds in the kingdom is evident when we witness 22,000 sects and denominations all saying something different, yet each claiming they have the truth. Both the reality of these birds in the kingdom, as well as the severe consequence of men eating these foul teachings of Christianity, is evidenced by the anger of Yahweh kindled against the children of Israel when the quail He brought from the sea (death) was still between their teeth; He smote them with a severe plague (Numbers 11:31-34)! These wilderness wanderers were not satisfied with the bread from heaven; they wanted flesh! So, Yahweh sent them "birds of the air." (To see further important and highly relevant truth regarding this, including revealing testimonies relative to recent Presidential administrations, click here.)
These birds of the air and the contrast between Yahshua who is above, and Christianity that is below, is clearly evidenced in Yahshua's invitation - "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28), in comparison to Christianity's Philistine Goliath invitation - "Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the sky and the beasts of the field" (1 Samuel 17:44). There are two who say "Come to me, and I will give." One offers rest; one offers birds and beasts. One offers deliverance for the "weary and heavy laden," while Saul/Paul Christianity offers armor that is weary and heavy (1 Samuel 17:38-39). To whom will you respond?
Equally, the reality of these foxes and birds that come from the sea of death is evident when we hear the corrupted teachings that come from educated and polished men who, like this scribe, say they want to follow Jesus. But are they following Him? Not really; for as long as the only option is Christianity, "the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."
What did Yahshua mean when He declared this regarding Himself and His head? He was telling this one who sought knowledge and understanding - "There is no one to whom I can give My head, My knowledge, My understanding; there is nowhere to lay My head. You are all fox's holes and bird's nests." Yahshua longs for one to whom he can impart His head, His knowledge, His understanding. And to whom will that knowledge be given? On whom will He lay His head? Let us see.
There are two testimonies we will examine here to answer this important question. First is the testimony that the set-apart Spirit provides through comparing the different gospel accounts in light of what we have learned in The Key To Their Understanding. We find that the gospels reveal the following three works: the first Remnant, Christianity, and the second Remnant, in addition to the kingdom of heaven. So in which gospel(s) do we find this account?
The second testimony we will examine is the account of one who laid his head on Yahshua. Yahshua never laid His head on anyone; but there was certainly one who laid his head of Yahshua's breast. We will seek to keep our consideration of both of these testimonies very brief; so be very attentive.
First, let it clearly be stated that the one to whom Yahshua will give His head, His knowledge, His understanding, is specifically the second Remnant, the one who receives the second touch. The first testimony to this is the specific gospels in which this passage is recorded. Found only in Matthew and Luke, we see Yahweh's testimony that this message applies specifically to the first and second Remnants, the Matthew and Luke groups. Yahshua will not rest His head on Christianity, as we have seen witnessed up to now in this writing; thus this account is not found in Mark.
While this message and identification is also to the first Remnant, more particularly it applies to the second Remnant who receive the second touch and sees all things clearly. In comparing these two accounts, we also find that the set-apart Spirit adds some very revealing information to the Luke testimony, which is not included in Matthew. Let us look at this.
In Matthew 8:22, after responding to the scribe, Yahshua next responded to a man with this answer - "Follow Me; and allow the dead to bury their own dead." But, as an extra message unique to the second Remnant, Yahshua adds in Luke 9:60 - "...; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God." While the first part of this message - the dead burying the dead - is a prohibition against Christianity, the second part is unique to Luke, the second Remnant. We find that the, "but as for you," is a clear and specific message directed to the second Remnant to "go proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God." This is in contrast to the first Remnant that was strictly a Jerusalem based work. In a much greater and more fulfilling purpose, the second Remnant is called to declare the kingdom of God throughout the entire world, preparing the world for Yahshua's soon return.
Luke likewise adds a second sober message not found in Matthew, thus once again identifying it as specifically relevant to the second Remnant. "No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God." In this message, Yahweh is repeating, and thus emphasizing, the second Remnant warning regarding Lot's wife - do not look back! We as His second Remnant are specifically warned on both counts to not look back! For those who do, their fate is certain - they will not reign with Yahshua in His kingdom. Yahweh discerns the hearts and affections of all men, and He will call to Himself those who are His bride, who long for His appearing and turn away from this world, not looking back. Those who are left, those who look back, will in no wise ascend.
This reference to the bride leads us to the second aforementioned testimony. It is clear that the one upon whom Yahshua will lay His head, His knowledge, His understanding, is pictured in the one who at the Passover supper laid his head upon Yahshua's breast - the disciple whom Yahshua loved, John, who pictures the beloved second Remnant bride.
We read in John 13:23-25 that at the Passover meal, John took the bride position of reclining on Yahshua's breast. When the disciples wanted to know Yahshua's "head," His understanding concerning the one who would betray Him, they inquired of the bride work who rested his head on Yahshua's breast. The one who receives the "head" of Yahshua, is the one who rests his head upon His breast - the John bride, the second Remnant. John was known as the one whom Yahshua loved. This was stated five times in John - 13:23, 19:26, 20:2, 21:7, 20 - which is the number of loaves of unleavened barley bread Yahshua blessed and multiplied to feed the 5,000.
In further sure testimony of John's place as the bride, John was given the responsibility of caring for Mary (John 19:26-27). The second Remnant is the Mary, versus the first Remnant that is the Martha. Let us briefly consider this.
The Mary second Remnant has "chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from" them. They sit at Yahshua's feet and learn new truth from His "head," while the Martha first Remnant were "worried and bothered about so many things" (Luke 10:41). (But, be cautious here because these testimonies regarding the two Remnant can switch; and the second Remnant had best be careful to adopt this place as the Mary, and not the Martha.)
Additionally, it was second Remnant Mary's arrival to Yahshua that caused Him to bring forth Lazarus from the grave. When first Remnant Martha came to Him, Yahshua did not raise Lazarus, but instead asked for Mary. Martha went to get Mary, declaring - "The Teacher (the one who is ready to impart to His second Remnant Mary bride His "head," His knowledge, His understanding,) is here, and is calling for you." Likewise, the "Teacher" calls for the second Remnant, the ones who will sit at His feat and learn His truth, eat His bread, and receive His "head." When Mary arrived, she once again took her position of being at Yahshua's feet.
In each case, both women responded with the identical comment, but Yahshua answered them in two entirely different and revealing ways. To Martha, Yahshua assured her that He was the resurrection and the life, the very message that a sleeping first Remnant needs to hear. But to Mary, her identical comment produced the action necessary to call forth Lazarus. To Mary's comment and response, Yahshua now asked - "Where have you laid him?" Yahshua then raised Lazarus from the dead, but only after waiting "two days" (John 11:6), or after 2,000 years of Christianity when the Remnant can then come forth, and only after the urging of a second Remnant Mary. (The numerical value for Lazarus's name is 153.)
We present all of this to verify one point - the one who reclined on Yahshua's breast, the one to whom was given the responsibility of a Mary (who upon the "power of the Most High" overshadowing her, brought forth newborn Yahshua, literally preparing His way, or the anointed Elijah work), is none other than the second Remnant. John is the bride work that reclines its head on Yahshua's breast, affording them the right to receive understanding and truth that others can only obtain by inquiring of the bride. And the key truth the bride obtains is the answer to the question - Who is the one who betrays Yahshua? You know him as Judas, but who really is it?
Yahshua's answer to bride John, who after receiving the question from Peter resumed his position on Yahshua's breast, is most revealing and relevant to what Yahshua is showing us in this writing regarding communion. He answered John:
"That is the one for whom I shall dip the fragment, and give it to him." So when He had dipped the fragment, He took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. And after the fragment, Satan then entered into him. Jesus therefore said to him, "What you do, do quickly." Now no one of those reclining at table knew for what purpose He had said this to him. ... And so after receiving the fragment he went out immediately; and it was night (John 13:26 - 28, 30).
Likewise, until the time present when the bride is now reclining on Yahshua's breast, no one at the communion table of the church knows for what purpose Yahshua said this! Who is Judas? Who is the one who betrays Yahshua? Who is the one into whom Satan enters and then immediately goes out into the night? And most of all, what was in that fragment of bread that would cause Satan to enter into Judas, causing him to leave the presence of Yahshua and betray Him? Only the bride knows the answer to these communion table questions; and this bride now tells you and all who join around this table - the one who betrays Yahshua is kissing Judas Christianity, who betrays Him with a kiss, saying they love Him, but equally denying Him with their corruption, their deception, and their lies! Judas is Christianity! And what was in that fragment of bread that invited Satan's entrance? This we will now see.
Why was it that Satan entered into Judas at that communion table specifically when Yahshua attestingly dipped the fragment of bread into the wine and gave it to him? What was there in the bread that would effect this? To answer this, let us ask a MOST important question. What kind of bread was served at that "supper" (John 13:2)? In the writing titled, Passover, we point out the following:
Matthew, Mark, and Luke clearly state that Yahshua ate the Passover meal with His disciples, and was thus crucified on the day after Passover, or the first day of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15). But, clearly John states that the meal with His disciples was merely a "supper" "before the feast of Passover," and that He was crucified on Passover (Nisan 14) as our Passover lamb.
For the sake of the proximity of this meal to Passover, which according to John was the next day, and the obvious identity of this meal with the last supper, we can be confident that the bread the disciples were eating here was feast-compliant unleavened bread. Now the plot thickens!
We have seen in this writing that the problem with Christianity is that their communion bread, the teachings they offer, is leavened Pentecost bread; and as represented by the seven loaves/seven baskets mark of the beast, it is equally identified with Satan, whom we see here entering into Judas immediately upon partaking of this bread. But considering that the bread was unleavened, why would Satan enter into Christianity Judas upon receiving this bread? Watch what Yahshua did to attest to this man's representation of the work that would betray Him.
Yahshua's answer to bride John's question regarding the one who would betray Him was - "That is the one for whom I shall dip the fragment, and give it to him." Considering that the fragment was unleavened bread, along with the understanding of Judas' representation of Christianity with its relationship to leavened bread and Satan, it is most significant that Yahshua did not simply give Judas a fragment of unleavened bread. He could have, in the natural; but very significantly, He did not! What did He do first? What had to be done to the bread before it could tell its whole story, causing Satan to enter into him?
Yahshua took the pure unleavened bread, dipped it into the wine, and then handed it to the one who would betray Him. Upon receiving this wine-dipped fragment, Satan entered into Judas, and he departed and went out into darkness. What, we must ask, happened to the fragment of unleavened bread when it was dipped into the wine? Wine has yeast, or leaven, from fermentation; so, what Yahshua did by that act was to make the bread leavened! Thus He was clearly attesting that the one who would betray Him, the one who as a result of that act would have Satan immediately enter into him, would be the one to receive the now leavened bread!
This is clearly the message Yahweh was giving here at this communion supper recorded in kingdom John. Christianity is the Judas who ate the fragment that was dipped into the fermented wine, causing it to be leavened, and opening the door for Satan to enter. (Satan's prophetic entrance into the 2,000 swine.) Once again we find the identification of Christianity with its leavened communion bread which it serves from the dead body of Christ, bringing Satan and darkness and death!
The revelation given to the second Remnant regarding these concealed truths is bold evidence that the second Remnant bride is indeed the one who, upon reclining its head upon Yahshua's breast, is receiving the truth, knowledge, and understanding that up to now has not been shared with anyone - "but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." He now has a second Remnant bride who lays her head on His breast, and He lays His head on hers, giving her truth that others (Peters) can only gain by inquiring of her. This is the truth now being given to this second Remnant bride that began coming out of the body of Christ in Passover, 2000. This is the truth that a Mary receives while sitting at Yahshua's feet.
Why would Yahshua reveal these things in these last days just before His return? For several reasons, as you can see; but one reason is because He is proving the wise scribes of this world to be foolish fox's holes and bird's nests, shaming the wise and confounding the learned and tearing down the stones of the temple of the body of Christ.
