Let us add more testimony to this amazing work of Yahshua in restoring His kingdom. The following material could be viewed as complicated, especially to a new reader to this material; but once grasped, it provides amazing and wonderful evidence concerning what Yahweh has done and will yet do.

The brief period during Yahshua's Nazirite vow, when He was identifying with the corruption of the kingdom of God, was remarkably, remarkably significant! Within those brief hours, both subject manifestations of the kingdom which man received while in his flesh and then corrupted (the original garden of Eden as well as the church) were represented. This is extremely important when we realize Yahshua suffered for both of these manifestations. How so? Let us see.

First, Yahshua's time in the garden alone where He prayed three times for the cup to pass from Him, identified with the garden of Eden.

Second, Yahshua's time of affliction and crucifixion when three times He refused to drink the wine offered to Him, identified with the church period.

Let us briefly retrace the course of events transpiring from the Passover meal to Yahshua's death on the cross. In this amazing course, we will see the pattern of these two manifestations of the kingdom of God to earthly man, and qualities of each.

You will recall that at the Passover meal with His disciples, Yahshua took the Nazirite vow, went to the garden alone, prayed three times that if possible the cup would pass from Him, was delivered into the hands of the Jews and the Romans, beaten and sentenced, three times Peter denied Him, three times He rejected any form of wine, it became dark for three hours, and finally Yahshua drank from the cup and died. If these are not enough "threes," you will recall that there were three miracle-birth men placed under the vow of the Nazirite - Samson, Samuel, and John. We will see the significance of these "threes" shortly, but first let us briefly list those events during Yahshua's vow and relate them to the two kingdom periods.


Yahshua's Experience The Kingdom Of God In:
Vow of Naz. at Passover meal

Garden of Gethsemane

The Garden of Eden





The church

With this summary, we will now lay out both kingdom manifestations more fully, paralleling Yahshua's own intercessoral and even pattern-setting acts relative to both kingdom periods. We will see again that the former always lays the pattern for the latter. Thus (as we have seen), the garden of Eden was the pattern for the church. But equally, the garden of Eden was the pattern for Yahshua's garden intercession. And, what will be to the amazement of the reader, He set the pattern for the body of Christ, which is not so great an experience relative to crucifixion.

We will first examine the kingdom of God per the garden of Eden, and its pattern for Yahshua's affliction as a Nazirite in a garden. Then we will list His afflictions so that the cause and effect upon the body of Christ may be seen - Yahshua setting the pattern for the body of Christ. If space permitted, these cause and effects would have been laid out as follows:


The Kingdom of God
Per the Garden of Eden
Yahshua's Affliction
as a Nazirite in a Garden
  Yahshua's Affliction
at the Hands of His Enemies
The Kingdom of God
Per the Body of Christ

So as you read these, because of space limitations you will have to make the mental shift yourself. Let us now look at these.

The Kingdom of God
Per the Garden of Eden
Yahshua's Affliction
as a Nazirite in a Garden
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the tree of life, and God's covering glory
Yahshua took the Nazirite vow
Adam and Eve were alone in the garden
Yahshua was alone in a garden
Man sinned, fell, and death began
The three disciples slept
Man was cursed - by the sweat of his face he was to eat bread till he returned to the ground Sweat became like drops of blood upon Yahshua, falling down upon the ground

"the Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."


Yahshua's Affliction
at the Hands of His Enemies
The Kingdom of God
Per the Body of Christ
Yahshua was delivered to the Jews by Judas, "a devil," to be afflicted
The devil has afflicted the body of Christ for 2,000 years
A scarlet/purple robe was placed upon Yahshua and a reed placed in His right hand The body of Christ has sought an early opportunity to reign in this life (1 Cor. 4:8), and are lied to by Satan that they will reign with Yahshua in the Millennium
A blindfold was placed on Yahshua
Satan has blinded the body of Christ so they cannot see truth
Yahshua bore a crown of thorns upon His head
The body of Christ has born the thorns of the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches
Yahshua was beaten
The body of Christ has been so marred by Satan that it is no longer recognizable as the Son of God (Isaiah 52:14)
They spat in Yahshua's face
The body of Christ has failed to bring forth the man child - godly seed in the name of its deceased Brother (Deut. 25:5-10) - and has their face spat into (covered in another writing)
Yahshua died The body of Christ dies

"If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross, and follow Me" (Mark 8:34).


I hope you see the two manifestations of the kingdom, as well as new insight concerning what it truly means to be a part of the body of Christ. Yahshua declared - "A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a slave above his master" (Matthew 10:24). The body of Christ is not above Christ. As went Christ, so goes the body of Christ. It must be that way. As Christ died for man, the body of Christ dies for man. As Christ resurrected on the third day, the body of Christ will resurrect on the third day. (But we cannot get into this here.) Again I remind you that even concerning Christ and the body of Christ church, the truth of Ecclesiastes 1 holds:

That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.
So, there is nothing new under the sun.

Let us now address the question concerning the repeated "threes." Three Nazirite men failed, three times Yahshua prayed in the garden for the cup to pass from Him, three times He refused to drink from the cup, three times Peter denied knowing Yahshua, three hours of darkness hung over man while Yahshua hung on the cross, and three times Yahshua asked Peter if he loved Him. Why? What is the meaning of this obvious repetition of "threes"?

Three is the number of completion. But more significantly in these cases, three is the number of the period of the church. This is born out all through the Scriptures (and addressed in other writings). Why three? Because the church was to get three 1,000 year periods (3,000 years) to effect their work. Would they succeed? Looking at their 2,000 years of history, one must conclude - No, they have not and would not succeed; testified to by Yahshua experiencing three hours of darkness on the cross and His cry at the end, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?" If Yahshua gave the church their 3,000 years, they would be forsaken. If He gave them 3,000 years, by their actions they would deny knowing Him three times. If He gave them 3,000 years, they would still be sleeping in the garden, failing to avoid entering into temptation. Thus, in Matthew 24:22 He said those days would be shortened (to two "days," or 2,000 years) "for the sake of the elect" (the Remnant) or "no flesh would have been saved."

Yahshua will cut the body of Christ's days "short" to 2,000 years, call out His "tithe of the tithe" Remnant (Numbers 18:26) from the tithe church, return "early," and set up His Millennial kingdom. Why then did Yahshua pray three times in the garden for the cup to pass away, and then three times during His affliction equally reject the cup? For the same reason there were three hours of darkness; for the same reason the three Nazirites failed; for the same reason Peter denied Yahshua three times - because the flesh-occupying church can never, never, no never ever bring forth God's holy offspring. They can never bring forth the fruits of the kingdom, even as the first kingdom failed. Like the two sons of Aaron, 2,000 years of church history have brought strange fire to the altar, and the church must equally be burned or purified. And even as the bodies of these two sons of the high priest were carried "outside the camp" while "still in their tunics," so the "sons of the kingdom" church remaining at the time of Yahshua's return will equally be carried "outside the camp," still in their earthly tunics (Leviticus 10:1-5).

The two loaves of leavened Pentecost bread (i.e., 2,000 years of the church) may be offered to Yahweh as a wave offering, remaining in the hands of the priest on earth, but Yahweh's laws strictly forbid any grain offering with leaven to ascend up to Him in smoke (Leviticus 2:11). The leavened two-loaf 2,000 year Pentecost church will not resurrect to Yahweh to receive their incorruptible bodies as they think. It is strictly against God's laws to resurrect leaven, even leavened Pentecost bread. Thus, as Zechariah prophesied, the first two parts of the church have been cut off and perished (to be resurrected back into flesh at the second resurrection). Whether it is the testimony of the church in threes or "cut short" twos, the church has and will fail to bring forth the righteous deeds of Yahweh.

It is time for the blood and water to come out of the side of the "sleeping" body of Christ and provide the King His bride. The "Adam" body of Christ is put to sleep, so that the Remnant rib can be taken from its side to form the bride. And in equal picture, while the three-disciples-church sleeps on the mountain of transfiguration (Luke 9:28-36), it will be Yahshua and His two Remnant Moses (the first-part Remnant that died) and Elijah (the second-part Remnant that does not die but ascends alive) that will be glorified. The church is legally dead, and it is time for His second "son of fresh oil" olive tree to be established.

This issue of the kingdom of God on earth and its resolution is THE SOLITARY GREAT ISSUE that prevails in importance over all other issues. The establishment of the kingdom of God on earth, its defilement, and its restoration are prevailing matters that necessitate being understood, especially so in these final days.
