This cane that Koro dropped was focused upon in a scene shortly before its loss. In that scene, Koro was agonizingly chanting a prayer to the Ancients, the whales, asking them for help. But Pai tells us that the whales were not listening. She then chanted, and the whales heard her. But as Koro chanted in vain, we see him holding and stroking his cane, his rod. The prophetic message that follows was not an intended association on the part of the Writer, going beyond her own awareness, but was a divine association and message that makes this prophetic movie complete.
Looking back at the school where Koro taught the boys, we find that the first thing he taught them was a chant; and he warned that if they broke the chant, they would suffer the consequences. One of the boys asked if this meant someone would die; but no, Koro told the boys that if they broke the chant, and I will quote the movie, “your dick will drop off.”
When I first heard this I responded morally and thought that it was unnecessary, even crude; but later, Kyle saw that this entire matter was a very revealing and highly relevant part of the message. In fact, it was from this specific drama that this entire matter regarding Jacob’s rod came forth.
That which happened to Koro at the sea the night when the whales beached, was the fulfillment of his previous warning to the boys. Koro failed in his chant! The whales did not hear him, but instead they heard Pai. Thus, Koro suffered the consequence uttered from his own mouth – he lost his cane, his rod, his “dick.”
I am not trying to be crude here, as you will soon see, for the message is unusually relevant, opening the door to other understanding, even as we have seen already per Jacob’s rods. It seems totally honest and relevant that these things be revealed to you in the very way in which Yahweh chose to reveal them; so if you must, please suffer through with the crude language.
We see here then a comparison between the rod, or cane, and the male’s reproductive capabilities. And it is not as though this issue is mute to Yahweh, for we see that it is central to the matter of faith. The father of faith, Abraham, was told that the sign of His covenant with him and his descendants, was the circumcision in the flesh of their foreskin (Genesis 17:9-14). Again, this is an issue of bringing forth offspring, and that is what the kingdom is all about. (Much more regarding this in the section titled “Three Trees.”)
Was Koro able to produce the required offspring with his rod of authority per his chiefdom, which he bore with him at the school? Not at all. He failed in his school with the first-born sons, and he failed in his chant, thus he lost his rod, his cane, his “dick.”
In the writing, The Sandals and the Staff, we point out that in first Remnant Matthew, Yahshua instructed the twelve to not take a staff. In Christianity Mark, He instructed them just the opposite – to take a staff. But then once again in second Remnant Luke, He told them as well to not take a staff. So who has the staff, which in the Greek is the word “rhabdos,” and is equally translated as “rod” or “scepter”? Clearly, the staff/rod has been given to Christianity. The body of Christ has been given the responsibility to bring forth godly offspring, even a leader who can equally deliver the people out of darkness. And just as Koro failed to do so, so the body of Christ, or Christianity, has failed. And what is their consequence? Even as we see here with Koro, they will lose their staff, their rod, their “dick.” They have violated their chants, their prayers, and they will lose their rod, their right to bring forth offspring. As a result and in order to produce the required offspring, Yahweh will put the masculine body to sleep and take out a Bride, and that right to bear offspring and lead will be given to her. This is precisely what happened regarding Koro and Pai.
Even as it is written to the first of the seven churches in Revelation 2:5, Christianity’s lampstand will be removed out of its place. And note, the lampstand is none other than the branches of the almond tree (Exodus 37:17-20), from which Jacob made his rods and placed upon them the “laban” stripes. The lampstand is none other than the collective attesting rods of the almond tree.
Read The Sandals and the Staff in order to better understand this issue of the staff/rod. And quite significant and confirming, while we see that the staff/rod does indeed speak of the responsibility to bring forth offspring, this is precisely the message of the sandals as well. If a man refused to bring forth offspring in his deceased brother’s name, the widow, in the presence of the elders, was to remove his sandal from his foot and spit in his face. From thence forward, this man was to be known as – “The house of him whose sandal is removed” (Deuteronomy 25:7-10). Thus, clearly both the sandal and the staff speak of bringing forth offspring.
And confirming of the highly prophetic nature of this movie, you will find that essentially throughout its entirety Pai is equally barefoot. She does not wear the sandals, with exception to one brief time, from which she repents. Momentarily she plans to return with her father to Germany (prophetic of Christianity), and only at that brief moment, from which she quickly turns, does she ever cover her feet with shoes. She is the Bride, and in keeping with Yahshua’s instruction per the Bride testimony in Matthew (the sandal is not mentioned in Luke; Mark has it), she does not take the sandals.
In closing this first part on the rod, we will take one final look at the work that has both the sandals and the rod/staff – Christianity. As you will see, this issue of the rod is highly significant, revealing, and its testimony is remarkably conclusive.
We noted once in a previous writing that, insomuch that Paul turned a sinful man over to Satan for the destruction of his flesh so that his spirit could be saved (1 Corinthians 5:5), as the main teacher and apostle of Christianity, legally he turned sinful Christianity in whole over to Satan for the same purpose. Thus, Satan has been destroying Christian’s flesh for 2,000 years – they have been dying.
It is quite significant that there are two specific times in all of Paul’s letters where he mentions the problem of a little leaven leavening the whole lump. He does so quite extensively here in verses 6 through 8 per this man whom he turned over to Satan, and once again in Galatians 5:9. The occasion of his comment in this second case had to do with the issue of circumcision.
Now, let us ask a question. What do we know about leaven and Christianity? The fact is, Christianity is leavened Pentecost bread; in fact, it is Pentecost’s two loaves, or 2,000 years, of leavened bread. Therefore, since the church is leavened, whatever judgment Paul leveled against those whom he said were leavening, falls on Christianity!
We have already stated that through Paul’s words, Christianity has been turned over to Satan for the destruction of their flesh. Thus Satan has killed Christians for its entirety. But we have noted that there was another time in which Paul called upon the warning and analogy concerning leaven as well, and would you be surprised that once again he evoked an equally severe consequential judgment?
It is quite amazing that Paul cited leaven two times, and in both cases he invoked a judgment for it. The first has been fulfilled in leading Christianity to death. So, what is the second? In Galatians 5:12 we read, and I quote a literal translation – “I would that indeed the ones unsettling you will cut off.” So what were they to “cut off”? The New American Standard says – “would even mutilate themselves.” And the American Standard Version says – “would even go beyond circumcision.” What is beyond circumcision? I had a Bible teacher who said that what Paul was speaking of here was “gross circumcision.” And what is gross circumcision? It is cutting off one’s “rod,” or to refer back to Whale Rider and its meaningful prophetic warning, to lose one’s “dick.”
Paul leveled this judgment against those who would bring leaven into the church, and in this particular case it had to do with circumcision, saying that if one is circumcised, “Christ will be of no benefit to you.” Read verses 1-5.
It seems most relevant that the two times Paul spoke of leaven, he issued judgments for that leaven which have found fulfillment in leavened Pentecost Christianity – one, in turning Christianity over to Satan, and the other its gross circumcision, or to “cut off” its rod. And this is precisely the message we have been seeing here. Christianity looses its rod, its “dick.” By Paul’s own words, leavened Christianity will lose its rod!
Thus, both of these specific curses set forth by Paul have found their fulfillment in Christianity, even as it was written beforehand in Zechariah 13:8. Here we read that “two parts,” or 2,000 years of the church, Christians, “will be (1) cut off and (2) die.” As its chief teacher and apostle, this is precisely the outcome that Paul equally declared for leavened Christianity – their rod is “cut off” and they die.
Once again, the seamless inner garment continues.
