With My Jealousy
There are many testimonies in the Scriptures regarding
the three-part, 3,000 year period that is given to the church. Many of these have been covered in
previous writings. For the sake of
introduction to this writing, let us briefly review some of these that relate
specifically to this period as it is divided two-thirds and one-third, or 2,000
years and 1,000 years.
- Zechariah 13:7-9 clearly states that “two
parts” of the church “will be cut off and die,” which is
precisely what has taken place for 2,000 years (2,000 swine have all gone
to the sea of death – Mark 5:13), and the “third part”
will be “left in it” and pass “through the fire”
of purification for the remaining 1,000 years.
- Freewill and peace offerings offered by the priests
were to be eaten on the first and second days; but likewise, on the third
day they had to be “burned with fire” – Leviticus 7:17,
- Hosea 6:1-2 in like testimony tells us that for two
“days” Yahweh has torn and wounded His church, thereby
becoming the fulfillment of the body of Christ as the crucified and
suffering Savior, but on the “third day” He will “bandage
us” and “revive us” and “raise us up.” He will “come to us like the
rain, like the spring (or, latter) rain watering the earth.” This is the same “third day”
promise regarding His own body – Matthew 16:21.
- Yahshua said – “Behold, I cast out demons
and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I am
perfected” (Luke 13:32).
- When will Elijah come and prepare the way for
Obviously in the third part of the church, for we find in 2 Kings 1
that fire consumed the first two captains “of fifty with their
fifty” that were sent to get Elijah to come down, but on the third
time an angel of Yahweh told him to go with that captain, which he did so.
- For many reasons, King Saul is a very clear picture
of Christianity. How many
years will Christianity receive?
Again, they receive two of the three parts, or 2,000 years. Thus, as a testimony of
Saul’s reign (and Christianity’s given tenure), as Samuel
declared, a man carrying three loaves of bread approached Saul and
gave him two loaves (1 Samuel 10:3-4), or two of the 3,000 years of
the church. Undoubtedly this
was wheat bread, for it was during wheat harvest (1 Samuel 12:17). These are the like two loaves of
leavened Pentecost wheat bread that were waved before Yahweh, but could
not ascend to Him as a burnt offering (Leviticus 23:17, 2:11-12),
revealing once again the first 2,000 years of the church that cannot
- Like Balaam, Christianity thinks that it is doing the
will of Yahweh, and though they too are sent by Him, He is likewise not
pleased with them. Two
times Balaam’s Pentecost donkey delivered him from destruction, but
the third time afforded an unavoidable termination (Numbers
22). Even so,
Christianity’s three parts must be cut short to two. If not, it would be three hours of
darkness and the cry – “My God, My God, why have You forsaken
Me?” (Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34, but not in Luke).
- And one of the most revealing and confirming
testimonies comes from Genesis 38.
We know from Hebrews 7:12-16 that our priesthood in Yahshua is
through the line of Judah.
Thus, if you want to know what that priesthood will be like, then
examine the offspring of Judah, who likewise were three sons. As written in Zechariah 13:7-9,
the first two sons were equally “cut off and died,” and
the third son did not receive Tamar, the Melchizedek bride. Such is Christianity. The first 2,000 years have died,
and the third part will not receive the kingdom rights. (Read The Garden of God - Today, page 5, to learn more about this.)
Each of these different
testimonies tells a unique truth regarding the church, but they all tell us
that the church will be divided two-thirds and one-third. And this is not all of these
testimonies, for the Scriptures repeatedly evidence this. (For an examination of this from a
governmental pattern, read The
Passing Over Principle.)
The purpose of laying this out,
once again, is to prepare the setting for the main message of this writing; but
before we get to that, let us examine for the first time in these writings
another very revealing testimony of this same pattern.
