From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those that will be throne bearers…
. I am merely documenting that which I am hearing by the Spirit…
. I always hear at least 20 years ahead…I’m not sure that is the case today…I believe the time is now.
. for His people that are now. and for His people which are to come…
. Exodus 15. Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for He hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider he hath thrown into the sea. The Lord is my strength and my song, and he is become my salvation; he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him… Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation…Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thy inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in thy Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.
. Ezekiel 1, Ezekiel 10, The Revelation 4. the subject matter with which we have been dealing is Terrible. as in God is Terrible. in times past, men under the age of 40 were not allowed to study this. only men of the highest degree of mental and moral perfection were allowed to study this. it was feared that undertaken by lesser men, it could lead to mental and emotional imbalance. (now the Kabbalists will teach it to anybody, including ungodly rock stars, which without the Spirit of God, results in mental and emotional imbalance. I pray that the truth of these mysteries will overcome, and show themselves greater in their lives, and bring them to the Most High God.) ‘It’ is called the Merkabah. the Divine Throne/ Chariot. around which Jewish mysticism, and later the study of the Kabbalah centered. I have no interest in either of those. I have chosen to wait for Revelation from the Spirit of God to show me the truth, the secrets, concerning this Divine Throne/Chariot. evidently that time is now. This Divine Throne/Chariot is what Ezekiel saw at the beginning of his prophetic ministry. the vision of the Divine Throne/Chariot was a fitting introduction to his prophetic career. the main feature of the Merkabah is it’s being drawn by the four faced living creatures and it’s mobility. in this vision, Ezekiel saw the departing of the Merkabah to mean the impending departure of the Divine Presence of God from the temple in Jerusalem, and the fall of Judea.
. in this post I am taking some notes from: The Pentateuch And Haftorahs edited by J. H. Hertz. second edition. pages 1027-1031.
. in Ezekiel 1. Throne bearers.
. the supporters of the Merkabah were essentially human in form.
. they always moved forward. a face in each appropriate direction.
. wherever the Spirit went, they went. the Divine will guided the movements of the creatures.
. coals of fire. Psalm 18: 7-10: he rode upon a cherub and did fly…
. creatures were not stationary. they galloped to and fro at the speed of lightning.
. to each four faced creature a wheel
. one wheel fixed into another crosswise so that whatever direction the creature turned the wheel revolved that way.
. the wheel had no capacity for independent movement.
. as the Spirit was to go thither, so they went. the creatures required no directing, because the will of God was known to them.
. when the creatures moved, the wheels moved also. the repetition of this phrase emphasizes the co-ordination between the creatures and the wheels.
. now is the time for understanding these things. He will do this now, in the kingdom age, and through eternity.
. throne bearers…
