Isaiah 53

ISAIAH 53  (Tanakh JPS 1985)

Forward:

The Jewish Publication Society began to consider a new edition of the Bible and the concept of a completely new translation gradually took hold and the task was begun in 1955. The new translation from Hebrew to English began in 1955 after the Hebrew language was revived and made an official language of Israel and was first published in 1985.

G-d is having me type these very words as His servant who speaks to Him face to face. I am the prophet like Moses and the manner in which Moses wrote the Torah is the same manner in which I type the writings of this wordpress site. G-d teaches me the subject matter with the scripture and articles on the internet by learned Jewish men and organizations that He chooses and directs me to by verbal command.

Then He has me type the title and content and we discuss the meaning and purpose of every sentence and paragraph being used. It is not just dictation from a boss to a secretary though the result is the same. Every sentence is His.

G-d also has me edit and add to these writings by cutting and pasting material from other writings of this site at times and for reasons unknown to me. The obvious reason is to consolidate the writings into the writings viewed most often. I would think reading this writing would cause the reader to read all of them and I would be wrong.

When all of these writings are in a book and people realize it is written by the HaMoshiach at G-d’s command and direction and translated into Hebrew all of the writings will be read throughout Israel. Which will happen some day.

And it will begin when a single Jew understands from his knowledge of the Bible, the Talmud and the promises of G-d that there is no other answer to these writings. Belief may be far behind. Until you speak with me. For then you will know. G-d controls everything I do, say and type. I am a host of the L-rd of Hosts.

People can believe in a story in the past but when that story stands before them they do not believe. With or without miracles. Yet. G-d tells me those who will believe have not yet read this writing. The many to be made righteous and those written into the scroll of remembrance of Malachi 3. I am the man in linen with the writing case at my waist. The only man specifically taken to Heaven by the words of G-d. Elijah.

All of these writings are the sign from G-d that I am His righteous servant and that all of the words in all of the writings are accurate and true interpretations of the Jewish bible. G-d interpreting His prophecies of the book He gave His children for His children to understand it as He would have them understand it today. The day of the L-rd.

mmmm

Verse by Verse Commentary on Isaiah 53 with explanations of why it does not describe Jesus as set forth by Christianity or the Jewish people as the man Israel as set forth by Tovia Singer of Outreach Judaism with his holocaust analysis and the animal sacrificial atonement and worship laws of G-d and Jews for Judaism and it’s “exaltation” interpretation: 

The witnesses of the righteous servant (verses 1-6)

1 “Who can believe what we have heard? Upon whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

“Who can believe what we have heard?: The witnesses ask who can believe it? That G-d would redeem the Jewish people but even more so that G-d is doing it in the same manner that He did things in the Jewish Bible. With one man and not by using His power to change the will and thinking of all people so that they heed and revere the name of the L-rd and are all knowledgeable in the teachings of G-d that He gave to Moses.

“We” had not been told by their Sages, wise men, Rabbi’s, Pastors, Priest’s, Pope’s and theologians that G-d’s righteous servant of Isaiah 53 is Elijah. “We” had never heard such a thing.

That Elijah is the HaMoshiach who like Cyrus of Persia is given this name and is a gentile (in the beginning) and that Elijah is the descendant of King David through King Solomon  of the tribe of Judah whom the spirit of G-d and the person of the spirit of the Holy G-d alights upon in fulfillment of Isaiah 11/2 (Elijah of the Bible is not an Israelite. He is a Tishbite from Gilead east of the river Jordan).

And who can believe that G-d said He would send Elijah with the covenant of sin forgiveness when Jerusalem was rebuilt as it is today and he is really here? That the prophecy of G-d of the arrival of Elijah to reconcile the families of the Jewish people to G-d and showing that the only true religion of Abraham is Judaism is really happening?

the arm of the Lord: his vindication and redemption. Jesus spoke a prophecy on more than one occasion that he would return in his generation and the eyes of those that pierced him with the spear would see it. It did not happen. His brazen oath to return was not vindicated. Jesus called out on the cross to G-d “why have you forsaken me”. Forsaken means to abandon forever.

These writings reveal that the L-rd is with me and His arm of redemption is upon me. The redemption of the Jewish people begins with the arrival of Elijah with the angel of the covenant of the forgiveness of the sins of the Jewish people G-d declared in the book of Jeremiah. G-d forgives sin by His written word. The redemption of the Jewish people begins with complete sin forgiveness of every Jewish person on earth. G-d remembers their sins no more by His written word. That does not mean they are all in right standing with Him for the Heaven He is creating where the name Israel shall endure forever.

The redemption that comes with sin forgiveness and the vindication of the L-rd against Christianity and Islam. There is only one last prophet of G-d in the prophecy of the Jewish Bible and he is not Jesus or Mohammad. He is Elijah. And I can deliver that message as no other man can. In the power and words of G-d and the interpretations by G-d of His prophecy.

2For he has grown, by His favor, like a tree crown, Like a tree trunk out of arid ground. He had no form or beauty, that we should look at him: No charm, that we should find him pleasing.

This could never describe Jesus. Everyone except for certain Jewish religious leaders found Jesus pleasing and charming. A wonderful holy Jewish man who never sinned.

Some of the first written interpretations or targums (ancient paraphrases on biblical texts) see Isaiah 53 as referring to an individual servant, the Messiah, who would suffer. Messianic Jewish talmudist, Rachmiel Frydland, recounts those early views:

“Our ancient commentators with one accord noted that the context clearly speaks of God’s Anointed One, the Messiah. The Aramaic translation of this chapter, ascribed to Rabbi Jonathan ben Uzziel, a disciple of Hillel who lived early in the second century c.e., begins with the simple and worthy words:

‘Behold my servant Messiah shall prosper; he shall be high, and increase, and be exceeding strong: as the house of Israel looked to him through many days, because their countenance was darkened among the peoples, and their complexion beyond the sons of men (Targum Jonathan on Isaiah 53, ad locum).’”

“We find the same interpretation in the Babylonian Talmud:

What is his [the Messiah’s] name? The Rabbis said: His name is “the leper scholar,” as it is written, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him a leper, smitten of God, and afflicted.” (Sanhedrin 98b)

“Similarly, in an explanation of Ruth 2/14in the Midrash Rabbah it states:

He is speaking of the King Messiah: “Come hither” draw near to the throne “and dip thy morsel in the vinegar,” this refers to the chastisements, as it is said, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities.”

“The Zohar, in its interpretation of Isaiah 53, points to the Messiah as well:

There is in the Garden of Eden a palace named the Palace of the Sons of Sickness. This palace the Messiah enters, and He summons every pain and every chastisement of Israel. All of these come and rest upon Him. And had He not thus lightened them upon Himself, there had been no man able to bear Israel’s chastisements for the trangression of the law; as it is written, “Surely our sicknesses he has carried.” (Zohar II, 212a)

The early sages expected a personal Messiah to fulfill the Isaiah prophecy. No alternative interpretation was applied to this passage until the Middle Ages. And then, a completely different view was presented. This view was popularized by Jewish commentator Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Itzchaki), who lived one thousand years after Jesus.

Rashi held the position that the servant passages of Isaiah referred to the collective fate of the nation of Israel rather than a personal Messiah. Some rabbis, such as Ibn Ezra and Kimchi, agreed. However, many other rabbinic sages during this same period and later—including Maimonides—realized the inconsistencies of Rashi’s views and would not abandon the original messianic interpretations.

Yet to this day, many rabbis persist in citing Rashi as the definitive word on how to interpret the righteous servant of the Lord in Isaiah 53. Others admit the weakness of this view and say that the passage applies to an individual. They usually cite the prophet Isaiah himself, King Cyrus, King Hezekiah, Josiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Moses, Job or even some anonymous contemporaries of Isaiah as the one spoken of by the prophet.

No one cites the obvious individual that I have seen and the correlation between the purpose of G-d’s righteous servant and the purpose of Elijah in the book of Malachi. The man who comes with the angel of the covenant of sin forgiveness of the Jewish people G-d declared for a time to come in Jeremiah 31. Elijah. He brings the redemption. He is the HaMoshiach. He has to be described. Just as the twig of the stump of Jesse of Isaiah 11/2 has to be described.

Rashi’s commentary on verse 2, in his contrary opinion that the righteous servant is Israel the people, for my interpretation of the righteous servant being the descendant of David from Chapter 11, would read: “This man, before this greatness came to him, was a very humble man, and he came up by himself like a sapling of the saplings of the trees, and like a root: he came up from dry land, neither form: had he in the beginning, nor comeliness. Now shall we desire him?: This is a question.”

Shall we desire him? If the dry land were atheism and his form was a gentile (like Cyrus of Persia) under the Jewish law, the Halacha (in the beginning), would he be attractive to the Jewish people. No. And that is a description of me Keith Ellis McCarty and I am a descendant of King David through King Solomon of the tribe of Judah by virtue of the spirit of G-d alighting upon me in 2007 in fulfillment of Isaiah 11/1-2. I will convert orthodox when I reach Jerusalem.

3He was despised, shunned by men, A man of suffering, familiar with disease. As one who hid his face from us, He was despised, we held him of no account.

He was despised, shunned by men: Jesus was not despised and shunned by men. Multitudes followed him everywhere he went. Twelve men left their way of life to follow and care for him. He was loved and highly esteemed. He did have religious enemies and intentionally infuriated religious leaders at synagogue’s and merchant’s at the Temple. But they could not attack him because of his legion of followers.

This verse fits me today. And there will be many more who despise, shun and hold me of no account simply for declaring this truth: I am the Lord’s righteous servant described in this chapter.

a man of suffering, familiar with disease: Jesus wept one time. He is never portrayed as a man of suffering, familiar with disease. Yes, he suffered at death as did legions of others in his time but he was not a man of suffering during his life.

As a colon and skin cancer survivor with over twenty-two surgical scars from many different accidents including a gun shot to the abdomen, emotional scars from a dysfunctional home as a child, and 20 years of head and jaw pain from nightmares and grinding my teeth I am a man of suffering familiar with disease.

None of which prepared me for the suffering I have endured by the hand and power of G-d after I offered myself for guilt to HaShem (though He removed the nightmares and constant head pain).

4Yet it was our sickness that he was bearing, Our suffering that he endured. We accounted him plagued, Smitten and afflicted by God;

Yet it was our sickness that he was bearing, Our suffering that he endured: The sickness is not being righteous. They suffer the sickness of not being in right standing with G-d. I have suffered by the chastisement and punishment laid on me by the hand, words and power of G-d to make me suitable for His purpose (just as G-d does with Ezekiel). A purpose that includes making the many righteous.

Ezekiel is treated harshly and punished for 430 consecutive days. This punishment is for the sins of the House of Israel and the House of Judah which is the Jewish people. This is the same manner G-d prepares His righteous servant of Isaiah 53. In some translations of Isaiah 53 the words “Through the sin of my people, who deserved the punishment.” and “It is their punishment that he bears” are used instead of “you shall bear their punishment”.

Ezekiel does not relieve the punishment of the House of Israel and the House of Judah or their sins. It describes a great ordeal Ezekiel is being put through to make him suitable for G-d’s purpose to be a prophet to the Jewish people.

We accounted him plagued, Smitten and afflicted by God: This describes a man that G-d does not like, a sinner whose life is full of bad events, sickness and sorrows. It could never apply to Jesus.

A person with flawed features from birth was considered cursed and afflicted by G-d. King David would have nothing to do with the lame, blind and disfigured. I was born disfigured with no right breast with a smaller right shoulder and withered arm.

5But he was wounded because of our sins, Crushed because of our iniquities. He bore the chastisement that made us whole, And by his bruises we were healed.

But he was wounded because of our sins: I have been wounded, crushed, chastised and bruised by the hand, words and power of G-d to make me suitable for His purpose. That purpose includes being the messenger and herald of the new covenant of sin forgiveness to the Jewish people.

“By his bruises [or stripes] we are healed” means that the marks of the fire of refinement the L-rd has put me through have prepared me to be the teacher of righteousness and those who listen are healed of their sinful ways. It does not mean my bruises and scars (stripes) bore the sins of others.

6We all went astray like sheep, Each going his own way; And the Lord visited upon him The guilt of all of us.”

And the Lord visited upon him The guilt of all of us: I offered myself to G-d for guilt in return for long life and to serve His purpose. I accepted the guilt of the Jewish people as my own and G-d sentenced me to suffering chastisement and punishment by His hand, words and power until I was suitable for His purpose to make intercession for the many sinners through the teaching of righteousness and to be the messenger of the new covenant of sin forgiveness for the Jewish people. And much more.

Isaiah (verses 7-10)

7He was maltreated, yet he was submissive He did not open his mouth; Like a sheep being led to slaughter, Like a ewe, dumb before those who shear her, He did not open his mouth.

He was maltreated, yet he was submissive: Maltreatment is a part of being chastised and punished by the hand, words and power of G-d. It is necessary to break the will of a man and to cleanse, temper and calm his soul. It is a tedious slow process. G-d is the one who maltreated me not man. So I was submissive and did all I was told to do day in and day out. It is the same process as breaking a wild horse for riding, making a convict in prison obey the rules and making a recruit into a soldier in boot camp. The maltreatment is harsh physically and mentally and an emotional roller-coaster. Your soul screams. G-d created the emotions of a human being and a body that responds to them. His method of changing them requires pain and suffering. In nine years I have suffered mental and physical anguish every single day and night. G-d does not sleep and He is relentless. It is G-d’s way of tempering and cleansing the spirit and soul. It is a removal of self will to be made suitable for G-d’s purpose.

He did not open his mouth: Jesus talked until his last breath. In one Gospel Jesus is asked are you going to remain silent and Jesus talks verse after verse in answer to the question.

When G-d revealed himself to me in 2007 He took me from the world, the land of the living and material things. Alone, no more working, no phone, no car, no computer, no law license’s, no bank account, no credit cards, and no money without explanation to friends and family, silent as a lamb. Maltreated is an understatement to how I felt being chastised and punished by the hand and power of G-d.

8By oppressive judgment he was taken away, Who could describe his abode? For he was cut off from the land of the living Through the sin of my people, who deserved the punishment.

By oppressive judgment he was taken away: The judgement against Jesus by Pilate was “not guilty”. To wash his hands of the whole religious controversy Pilate asked the multitude that had gathered what they would have him do with Jesus. Release him or crucify him. The multitude said crucify him. This was not a judgement. He was not taken away he was executed by crucifixion as thousands of Jewish people were.

The oppressive judgement is being guilty and receiving a sentence of maltreatment, chastisement, punishment, bruising and crushing until suitable for G-d’s purpose. A purpose for which I have been given long life. I had the sins and guilt of Israel laid on me that I am not guilty of so that G-d could pronounce an oppressive judgement of maltreatment, chastisement, punishment, bruising and crushing, after I offered myself for that guilt, to be made suitable for G-d’s purpose and receive long life.

Who could describe his abode?: Jesus has a house in the Gospels but it is never described. “And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.” Mark 2/15 King James Version (KJV).

My abode is room and board in return for care and assistance to my elderly parents in a town home in Houston, Texas. What is special about describing my abode is that where I dwell G-d dwells. His presence does not leave me. At least until the third Temple is built.

For he was cut off from the land of the living: Jesus was removed not cut off from the land of the living.

G-d took me away from society and the material things of the world cutting me off from those living their lives with cars and phones and computers and houses and bank accounts and credit cards and money and jobs.

Ezekiel also had the spirit of the Holy G-d who is the angel of His Presence alight upon him and was cut off from the land of the living as he went through this process of refinement of soul and self to be made suitable for G-d’s purpose of being a prophet to the Jewish people.

“A spirit seized me and carried me away. I went in bitterness, in the fury of my spirit, while the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.” Ezekiel 3/14.  “And a spirit entered into me and set me upon my feet. And He spoke to me, and said to me: “Go, shut yourself up in your house.” Ezekiel 3/24.  “As for you, O mortal, cords have been placed upon you, and you have been bound with them, and you shall not go out among them.” Ezekiel 3/25.

Through the sin of my people: The people of Isaiah who are the Jewish people.

who deserved the punishment: I have been punished by the hand, words and power of the G-d of Israel to make me suitable for His purpose. That purpose includes being the messenger and herald of the new covenant of sin forgiveness to the Jewish people. It is for His names sake and His promise to them that He remembers their sins no more and for the building of the third Temple for G-d’s return to Jerusalem.

Ezekiel is treated harshly and punished for 430 consecutive days. This punishment is for the sins of the House of Israel and the House of Judah which is the Jewish people. This is the same manner G-d prepares His righteous servant. The words “Through the sin of my people, who deserved the punishment.” and “It is their punishment that he bears” are used instead of “you shall bear their punishment” in Ezekiel 4/4.

Ezekiel does not relieve the punishment of the House of Israel and the House of Judah or atone vicariously for their sins by lying on his side for 390 days for the House of Israel and 40 days for the House of Judah. For 430 days pinned to the ground.

And the Jewish people were not vicariously relieved of their punishment. The complete fall of Jerusalem and final deportation occurs in Ezekiel’s lifetime. It is figurative speech. Just as in Isaiah 53 where the man has the sins and guilt of Israel laid on him that he is not guilty of so that G-d can pronounce an oppressive judgement of chastisement and punishment, bruising and crushing, after he offers himself for that guilt, is really just for the man to be made suitable for G-d’s purpose.

I know what Ezekiel is going through in this punishment. I have experienced it. I cannot describe exactly what Ezekiel went through during those 430 days but I do know what 5 days was for me.

In the second year after the spirit and the person of the spirit of G-d alighted upon me and G-d first spoke to me in 2007 everything changed when G-d told me I was going to sacrifice for 5 days. I had not experienced any crushing, bruising, chastisement or punishment before this. And those are the very words from Isaiah 53.

As I lay in bed the cords of G-d’s power enveloped me. I simply could not move. G-d never stopped talking to me and was explaining to me everything that was happening. He showed me how His power could slowly crush my chest until I could not breath and He let the fear of that overwhelm me.

This only took a few hours of the five days. G-d is very creative and there was very little let up in this method of teaching me of His power, the scripture, the Jewish people, fear of Him and the level of pain He would lay on me. I saw His goodness and I saw His backside. A side no man wants to see and hear much less feel. G-d is fearsome and to be feared.

It changed our relationship, how I thought of Him and took a lot of the fight out of my soul. And this process has continued in many ways and experiences over the years. It is how I learned about creation, the scripture and mysteries of heaven while being made suitable for the purposes of G-d.

Ezekiel is told that he is suffering the punishment of the Jewish people. G-d then tells Ezekiel that “I impose on you one day for each year” of their punishment which is armies G-d says he raised up against them, destruction of the first Temple and exile for their disobedience to Him.

You shall bear their punishment really means I am punishing you as they have been punished to make Ezekiel’s forehead like adamant (flint); meaning as hard and tough emotionally as they are and to calm his temperament. To reduce his personal affront to their laughter at him and disbelief that he is actually speaking the words of G-d. To prepare him to be a prophet to the Jewish people in exile.

G-d and the person of the spirit of the Holy G-d have come to Ezekiel (Chapter 3/12-15 and 22-27) to prepare him to be a prophet to the Jewish people. The hand of the Lord of chastisement and punishment is infuriating his spirit. His power covering Ezekiel like cords. The Presence of G-d causes Ezekiel to fall to his face. His tongue is no longer his own for he speaks the words G-d would have him speak.

9And his grave was set among the wicked, And with the rich, in his death— Though he had done no injustice And had spoken no falsehood.

his grave was set among the wicked, And with the rich, in his death: Jesus taught that the rich man is almost always a sinner. Being buried with the rich is the same thing as a sinner making his grave with the wicked. This verse simply says the righteous servant of G-d was poor but dies a rich man. Jesus did not die a rich man. The righteous servant of G-d who is given the many as his portion and receives the multitude as his spoil will die a rich man.

10But the Lord chose to crush him by disease, That, if he made himself an offering for guilt, He might see offspring and have long life, And that through him the Lord’s purpose might prosper.

the Lord chose to crush him by disease: Jesus was never crushed by disease (or brought to grief by illness).

The people Israel as one have never been crushed by disease at the L-rd’s choosing. I agree with the sage Maimonides (Rambam) that Israel as one man cannot be G-d’s righteous servant of Isaiah 53. This view has many inconsistencies.

Foremost is the idea of a collective offering of the Jewish people to G-d of themselves as a guilt offering in the holocaust as taught by Rabbi Tovia Singer who is an influential anti-Christian missionary and celebrated debater of Christians with his interpretation of Isaiah 53. The other idea is presented by Jews for Judaism as an “exaltation” of the Jewish people by the world in a time to come.

Rabbi Singer says “The offering of guilt in this verse is actually literally translated as guilt-offering.”

A guilt offering also referred to in English as a trespass offering was a type of Biblical sacrifice, specifically a sacrifice made as a compensation payment for unintentional transgressions. It was distinct from the biblical sin offering.

The transgressor furnished an unblemished ram for sacrifice at the Temple in Jerusalem, as well as (in cases of sins against holy items, theft, commission of fraud or false oaths) monetary compensation to the victim for their loss, plus a mark-up of 20% of the value to cover the priest’s earnings.

Rabbi Singer tells us that “The guilt-offering is a fire-offering in which all the parts are to go up in smoke and the hide belongs to the one making the offering. I mentioned before that during the Holocaust Hitler not only burned Jews in the ovens of Auschwitz but he also used their skins as lamp shades and their hair as stuffing for pillows. He sacrificed these people on the alters of ovens and kept their hides as his portion but not until he worked and starved them to death.”

This phrase “He sacrificed these people on the alters of ovens and kept their hides as his portion” seems to be a reference to Isaiah 53/12 “Assuredly, I will give him the many as his portion,….”

Rabbi Singer is saying that Hitler made a guilt offering of six million Jewish people who are unblemished ram guilt offerings to G-d and received as his portion human hides of the Jewish people from G-d. That Hitler is the man described in Isaiah 53.

His interpretation is that Isaiah 53 describes the suffering servant Israel who have never offered themselves for guilt to G-d and his explanation that the offering is done for them by Hitler making guilt offerings of them in altars of ovens is his best answer for a verse that does not fit his interpretation. The Christians also do this in different ways.

G-d created an animal sacrificial system of laws for many purposes for a primitive people and commanded the Jewish people not to sacrifice their children through His prophet. G-d never says these laws are to be applied to humans. Isaiah 53 describes a human being not an animal. G-d’s laws of animal sacrifice were just that. Animal sacrifice.

Rabbi Singer sums up his interpretation and commentary on Isaiah 53/10 with “So after the atrocities of WWII the L-RD’S purpose has prospered because the land that was sworn to us is once again being inhabited by its rightful owners and is awaiting the final ingathering.”

Isaiah 53/10 says that if the man described offers himself for guilt “He might see offspring and have long life, And that through him the Lord’s purpose might prosper.”

Rabbi Singer’s interpretation is that six million murdered victims of the Holocaust were made animal ram guilt offerings under the animal sacrificial laws of G-d and that through their deaths a purpose of G-d has prospered.

That G-d had Hitler offer G-d’s children as human animal sacrifices to Him for the purpose of Israel returning to the promised land. And the Christians believe G-d offered His son as a human animal sacrifice for the purpose of forgiving their sins and saving them to Heaven.

The purpose of G-d for the man who makes the many righteous with long life is found in Malachi 3. The teacher of righteousness reconciles the sons to the fathers and the fathers to the sons through the Teachings of G-d given to Moses at Horeb.

How all of those six million people were first crushed by G-d with disease or otherwise so that they would offer to be a guilt offering under the animal sacrificial atonement and worship laws is never explained. And six million is not all of the Jewish people representing the man Israel. Nor were these six million all people of a life of suffering familiar with disease (53/3).

The only time there was ever a collective agreement by the people of Israel was at Sinai when the Jewish people received the Torah and it did not include an offering of themselves for guilt. And there is no account that the Israelites were crushed with disease by G-d so that they would make such an offer.

This interpretation does not explain how the sins of the Jewish people can be put on all of the Jewish people; why such a covenant with G-d is made and left out of the Torah; why offering oneself for guilt is an animal guilt sacrifice applied to a human being and the man is given long life; or why this is a vicarious sin sacrifice so that the gentiles can share in the world to come.

Jews for Judaism says that in a time to come the world will come to realize that the Jew was right all along. That there is no Jesus who died for the sins of mankind and the Koran is nothing more than plagiarism of the stories of Abraham and the Torah and the oral tradition. And this would include those who do not believe in G-d and those who do but are not religious. Jews for Judaism takes this concept on the history and fate of the Jewish people as one man Israel and tries to fit it into the description of G-d’s righteous servant of this chapter.

G-d has never changed the will of men or how they think of the Jewish people in His power. Any exaltation the Jewish people receive from the world will come through G-d’s efforts with His prophet described in Isaiah 53 who G-d calls “My righteous servant”. G-d is not creating a new world of all men loving and exalting and holding in high esteem the Jewish people and practicing Judaism but He is creating a new Heaven for only the Jewish people where the name of Israel shall endure forever.

Those who heed and revere the name of the L-rd and those who are reconciled to G-d and the practice of Judaism by Elijah and written into the scroll of remembrance of Malachi 3 are part of the “many” that G-d’s righteous servant makes righteous in Isaiah 53/11.

The nations will never see the Jewish people in the light discussed by Jews for Judaism and the kings (of nations) will never come to realize that their spiritual assessment of the servant was completely backward or that in truth “it was our ills that he bore and our pains that he carried; but we had regarded him diseased, stricken by God and afflicted.”

Diseased, stricken and afflicted does not describe the Jewish people in any way. Isaiah 53 is describing a man not a spiritual concept of what might happen in the world in a selective interpretation of the Jewish Bible in what G-d means when He says His servant will be exalted. And the Jewish people did not bear the ills and pains or guilt and sin of the gentiles. There is no vicarious suffering for others in the Jewish bible. There has to be another explanation and it is in these writings.

Rambam says Moshiach will compel all of Israel to walk in the way of the Torah; perfect the entire world motivating all the nations to serve G-d together; there will be neither famine nor war, neither envy nor competition; the entire world will be solely to know G-d; and the Jews will therefore be great sages and know the hidden matters with an understanding of their Creator to the full extent of human potential.

Rambam and the Sages and Jews for Judaism are religious leaders and as such interpret the scripture to create a world wide religious utopia of Judaism as the one true religion and peace throughout the world.

And yet these are G-d’s words on the days of the HaMoshiach that are not poetic ideals that can never happen in the real world as found in Isaiah 60 written not as prophecy but as a song for hope and joy and better times to come that have nothing to do with the world only Israel to flourish and be secure and the Jewish people to no longer be a spoil for the nations and not to have to bear the taunts of the nations from Ezekiel 34/23-31:

“23Then I will appoint a single shepherd over them to tend them—My servant David. He shall tend them, he shall be a shepherd to them. 24I the Lord will be their God, and My servant David shall be a ruler among them—I the Lord have spoken. 25And I will grant them a covenant of friendship. I will banish vicious beasts from their land, and they shall live secure in the wasteland, they shall even sleep in the woodland. 26I will make these and the environs of My hill a blessing: I will send down the rain in its season, rains that bring blessing. 27The trees of the field shall yield their fruit and the land shall yield its produce. [My people] shall continue secure on its own soil. They shall know that I am the Lord when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from those who enslave them. 28They shall no longer be a spoil for the nations, and the beasts of the earth shall not devour them; they shall dwell secure and untroubled. 29I shall establish for them a planting of renown; they shall no more be carried off by famine, and they shall not have to bear again the taunts of the nations. 30They shall know that I the Lord their God am with them and they, the House of Israel, are My people—declares the Lord God. 31For you, My flock, flock that I tend, are men; and I am your God—declares the Lord God.”

And the last words of G-d on the end times and the day of the L-rd is to be mindful of His teachings and that Elijah will reconcile families to one another by these teachings. Many of whom will return to the L-rd and be written into the scroll of remembrance and many who will not.

G-d has shown me how he orchestrated my being shot in the abdomen. The bullet passed through my colon, bladder and intestines. I was eighteen and this is when the doctors said a tumor began growing in my colon based on its size when surgically removed when I was in my early forties shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York. I was close to death and seeing how grief stricken so many relatives were on the news I asked my father for the money to pay for a colon examination. The doctors finally found what was making me so ill and unable to eat. A malignant tumor the size of an ear of corn that had burst through my colon and I was bleeding internally.

To say it crushed me and my life is an understatement. G-d afflicted me and crushed me with cancer with a bullet to my abdomen and, by His words to me, in His power.

That, if he made himself an offering for guilt: There are no testimonies in the New Testament that Jesus offered himself for guilt to G-d.

My offering of my soul and self for guilt was an offering for long life. It has nothing to do with the animal sacrificial laws of G-d. G-d crushed me with cancer and near death so that I would want long life and endure an incredible degree and amount of pain for many years as He prepared me to be suitable to be a prophet to the Jewish people. It is the same process G-d used to make Ezekiel’s forehead as hard as flint to be a prophet to the Jewish people.

The fact of the matter is that no man would refuse G=d’s request to be His righteous servant.

When G-d had Isaiah write chapter 53 He made sure the man described was blemished and could not be associated with the animal sacrificial laws of atonement and worship. All of those laws require unblemished animals. You cannot offer a diseased animal.

I am the man described G-d afflicted with cancer so that I would offer myself for guilt. He and I both know I would have made the offer without the cancer. It was done to make sure no one ever applied the animal sacrificial laws of atonement and worship to the man described. The man G-d calls “My righteous servant” who is Elijah of Malachi 3.

Jesus cannot be the man of Isaiah 53 though he and Paul and Peter claimed that he was. Jesus was unblemished. [ Jesus says “in the volume of the book it is written of me” that G-d prepared the body of Jesus to be a human sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins in replacement of the animal sacrificial atonement laws. That G-d would accept a human sacrifice for the sins of mankind since He no longer wanted or would accept animals. The Offering of the Body of Jesus Christ https://keithmccartymccarty.wordpress.com/2017/06/11/the-offering-of-the-body-of-jesus-christ/ ]

G-d knew all things in the beginning. That includes the way the gentiles would take the book of His children of the book. So He laid a snare for the day of the L-rd. This day, when the Jewish people have returned to the lands of Israel and Jerusalem has been rebuilt and the lands bloom again.

I offered myself for guilt to G-d and the offer was accepted. I did not know what an offering for guilt meant at the time G-d began speaking to me and revealing His power and the weight of His presence. G-d had to teach me the scripture first. One night G-d told me to read Isaiah 53 and when I finished He asked who I thought that was. I said I did not know and G-d said that is you. From there we went back to the first verse and He began to show me how I fit the description and Jesus does not as explained here. I did not know about Ezekiel or the suffering servant Israel at that time. I have learned many of these things as G-d has me type these writings. As He is doing right now in editing this writing and adding more information.

I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been and I have been through many injuries and sorrowful times. I became guilty of sins that were not my own and G-d sentenced me to chastisement, crushing, bruising and punishment until suitable for His purpose. Now my soul has been cleansed and tempered and remains in His power that envelops me always. I was not born with the soul of the Moshiach. G-d took my sinful soul and created the soul of the Moshiach while it rested in me. A soul G-d can dwell with and not be offended.

He might see offspring and have long life: Jesus died in his early thirties unmarried and without children.

My gunshot accident on a ranch in Texas that led to the cancer that crushed me also led to my marrying the girl who lived next door and we had three children.

The Lord (verses 11-12)

11Out of his anguish he shall see it; He shall enjoy it to the full through his devotion. My righteous servant makes the many righteous, It is their punishment that he bears;

Out of his anguish he shall see it; He shall enjoy it to the full through his devotion: Jesus did not come out of his anguish to make the many righteous through his devotion to G-d.

The anguish is the emotional and physical pain I have suffered by punishment in the power of the Lord of Hosts to make me suitable for His purpose. Being suitable for His purpose includes knowledge of the scripture and perfect communication between myself and G-d and the person of His spirit. I am devoted to G-d and His purpose. He has prepared me well through this process of refinement by punishment and teaching me the scripture.

12Assuredly, I will give him the many as his portion, He shall receive the multitude as his spoil. For he exposed himself to death And was numbered among the sinners, Whereas he bore the guilt of the many And made intercession for sinners.”

For he exposed himself to death: Jesus was not exposed to death. He died.

I was exposed to death by a near fatal bullet wound and colon cancer which had spread to my lungs. I was told I was going to die. G-d has told me that by His power I survived and by His power I will have long life. During the refinement of my soul and spirit He has exposed me to death as a part of my offering myself for guilt in vision and in the real world similar to the account of Jonah at the bottom of the ocean.

And was numbered among the sinners: Jesus was without sin.

I was numbered a sinner just like all men and was a sinner who did not know that G-d accepts repentance. I have been brought into righteousness with Him and now He is in charge of everything I do and say to make intercession for the many sinners through the teaching of righteousness and as the messenger of the new covenant of sin forgiveness for the Jewish people.

Elijah and the Covenant

7For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

8For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

9Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

10For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

11And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

12For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

13In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.     Hebrews 8/7-13 Holy Bible KJV.

 

Scholars of Greek consider its writing to be more polished and eloquent than any other book of the New Testament. The book has earned the reputation of being a masterpiece.[7] It also has been described as an intricate New Testament book.[8] Scholars believe it was written for Jewish Christians who lived in Jerusalem.    Wikipedia: Epistle to the Hebrews (edited).

 

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;     Hebrews 2/14 Holy Bible KJV.

 

A Definition of the “Flesh”
The Greek word for “flesh” in the New Testament is sarx, a term that can often in Scripture refer to the physical body. However, A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature describes the word this way: “the physical body as functioning entity; in Paul’s thought esp., all parts of the body constitute a totality known as flesh, which is dominated by sin to such a degree that wherever flesh is, all forms of sin are likewise present, and no good thing can live.”     Gotquestions.com

 

31See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. 32It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers, when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, a covenant which they broke, though I espoused them—declares the Lord. 33But such is the covenant I will make with the House of Israel after these days—declares the Lord: I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts. Then I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34No longer will they need to teach one another and say to one another, “Heed the Lord“; for all of them, from the least of them to the greatest, shall heed Me—declares the Lord.
For I will forgive their iniquities,
And remember their sins no more.     Jeremiah 31/31-34 Tanach JPS 1985.

 

1Behold, I am sending My messenger to clear the way before Me, and the Lord whom you seek shall come to His Temple suddenly. As for the angel of the covenant that you desire, he is already coming. 2But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can hold out when he appears? For he is like a smelter’s fire and like fuller’s lye.     Malachi 3/1-2 Tanach JPS 1985.

 

23Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the Lord. 24He shall reconcile parents with children and children with their parents, so that, when I come, I do not strike the whole land with utter destruction.
Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before
the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the Lord.     Malachi 3/23-24 Tanach JPS 1985.

 

Commentary:

The New Testament is said by Christianity to be the “new covenant” of sin forgiveness that G-d announces in chapter 31 of the Book of Jeremiah. The very covenant that G-d promised the people Israel when Elijah returned as the messenger of that covenant with the angel of the covenant (New Testament is a translation for New Covenant).

Jesus describes John the Baptist to be Elijah by reference to the verse in the Book of Malachi that says the messenger will be sent and the angel of the covenant is already on the way, and the messenger is Elijah. Jesus does not mention the angel of the covenant or the covenant (and John swears he is not Elijah).

The Gospels never mention G-d’s covenant of sin forgiveness of the Jewish people for a time to come when Elijah returns. And yet Jesus was aware of it and the commandment of G-d prohibiting human sacrifice. Jesus never explains how or why the covenant of the angel with Elijah of sin forgiveness is replaced by his death on the cross. He never mentions it.

The Book of Hebrews mentions G-d’s covenant of sin forgiveness of the Jewish people that comes with Elijah and the angel of the covenant. The unknown writer says that the covenant of sin forgiveness is old and ready to vanish away just as the first covenant became old and had to be replaced.

The first covenant of sin forgiveness did not become old it did what it was suppose to do. It forgave all of the Jewish people who had been in exile in Assyria/Babylon of their sins and when they returned to Jerusalem they were a Holy people to rebuild G-d’s Temple. And they did. The second Temple of the G-d of Israel.

The new covenant of sin forgiveness is by G-d’s words for a time to come. It is the very heart and soul of the end times promises of G-d to the Jewish people. A promise of redemption.

G-d’s covenant of sin forgiveness is for His namesake and for the Jewish people to be a Holy people when they rebuild His Temple. There is another Temple to be built. The covenant of sin forgiveness did not become old, fading away and vanish. It has been in heaven with G-d to be delivered by messenger at a time of G-d’s choosing.

This same unknown writer said that Jesus ate the flesh (the physical body of a human) and drank the blood under the belief that by his death he would destroy the power of death the devil: “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;”.

G-d did not replace His written covenant of sin forgiveness of the Jewish people with a human sacrifice of His son (or Himself) and Jesus did not end death and there is no devil with power over death.

This same unknown writer who quoted the scripture of Jeremiah: “Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.”

Changing a very important part of the verse which reads: “It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers, when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, a covenant which they broke, though I espoused [married] them—declares the Lord.”

It is not a covenant that has grown old and faded away. It was and is by the words of G-d a covenant for a time to come.

And that time is here. I am Elijah.

Ezekiel 33/30-33, With Commentary by Rashi from Chabad.org.

30And you, son of man, the members of your people who talk about you beside the walls and in the entrances of the houses, and one talks to the other, one to his brother, saying, “Come now and listen to what the word is that is coming forth from before the Lord.”

who talk about you: who mock you.

31And they will come to you as a public gathering, and they will sit before you as My people, and they will hear your words but not fulfill them; instead they make them into jokes with their mouth; their heart goes after their gain.

And you are to them as a song on the flute: And you are to them as a song on the flute.

From: Book of Ezekiel, Summary: JPS Tagged Tanakh 1985 Online at http://taggedtanakh.org/Chapter/Index/english-Gen-1

Ezekiel is a prophet whose name means “God strengthens.” He is the son of Buzi and of Priestly descent through the House of Zadok. He is taken away with King Jehoiachin at the time of Nebuchadnezzar’s second attack on Jerusalem and settles with a Jewish colony on the banks of the river Chebar in Babylonia, where he sees visions. He continues to prophesy for 22 years, beginning five years after he goes into captivity.

The first part of Ezekiel contains prophecies uttered before the destruction of Jerusalem to caution the people against the false hope of relief from their suffering in Egypt and to exhort them to repent for their unfaithfulness to God. It includes Ezekiel’s call to prophecy, the general carrying out of his commission, the rejection of the people because of their idolatry, the sins of the age in detail, the nature of the judgment, and the guilt that caused it.

The second section announces God’s judgments on the seven heathen nations—Ammon, Moab, Edom, Philistia, Tyre, Sidon, and Egypt—and is largely written between the beginning of Nebuchadnezzar’s siege of Jerusalem and the news of its fall. It also foretells the re-creation of the Land of Israel and of its people and contains a detailed vision of the restored Temple, Jerusalem, and nation.

 

10Thus said the Lord God: I am going to deal with the shepherds! I will demand a reckoning of them for My flock, and I will dismiss them from tending the flock. The shepherds shall not tend themselves any more; for I will rescue My flock from their mouths, and it shall not be their prey. 11For thus said the Lord God: Here am I! I am going to take thought for My flock and I will seek them out. 12As a shepherd seeks out his flock when some [animals] in his flock have gotten separated, so I will seek out My flock, I will rescue them from all the places to which they were scattered on a day of cloud and gloom. 13I will take them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them to their own land, and will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses and in all the settled portions of the land.     Ezekiel 34/10-13 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

23Then I will appoint a single shepherd over them to tend them—My servant David. He shall tend them, he shall be a shepherd to them. 24I the Lord will be their God, and My servant David shall be a ruler among them—I the Lord have spoken. 25And I will grant them a covenant of friendship. I will banish vicious beasts from their land, and they shall live secure in the wasteland, they shall even sleep in the woodland. 26I will make these and the environs of My hill a blessing: I will send down the rain in its season, rains that bring blessing. 27The trees of the field shall yield their fruit and the land shall yield its produce. [My people] shall continue secure on its own soil. They shall know that I am the Lord when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from those who enslave them. 28They shall no longer be a spoil for the nations, and the beasts of the earth shall not devour them; they shall dwell secure and untroubled. 29I shall establish for them a planting of renown; they shall no more be carried off by famine, and they shall not have to bear again the taunts of the nations. 30They shall know that I the Lord their God am with them and they, the House of Israel, are My people—declares the Lord God.     Ezekiel 34/23-30 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

2And six men entered by way of the upper gate that faces north, each with his club in his hand; and among them was another, clothed in linen, with a writing case at his waist. They came forward and stopped at the bronze altar. 3Now the Presence of the God of Israel had moved from the cherub on which it had rested to the platform of the House. He called to the man clothed in linen with the writing case at his waist;

4and the Lord said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who moan and groan because of all the abominations that are committed in it.” 5To the others He said in my hearing, “Follow him through the city and strike; show no pity or compassion.

6Kill off graybeard, youth and maiden, women and children; but do not touch any person who bears the mark. Begin here at My Sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were in front of the House. 7And He said to them, “Defile the House and fill the courts with the slain. Then go forth.” So they went forth and began to kill in the city.

8When they were out killing, and I remained alone, I flung myself on my face and cried out, “Ah, Lord God! Are you going to annihilate all that is left of Israel, pouring out Your fury upon Jerusalem?”

9He answered me, “The iniquity of the Houses of Judah and Israel is very very great, the land is full of crime and the city is full of corruption. For they say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see.’ 10I, in turn, will show no pity or compassion; I will give them their deserts.”

11And then the man clothed in linen with the writing case at his waist brought back word, saying, “I have done as You commanded me.”      Ezekiel /2-11 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

7See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when I will sow the House of Israel and the House of Judah with seed of men and seed of cattle; 28and just as I was watchful over them to uproot and to pull down, to overthrow and to destroy and to bring disaster, so I will be watchful over them to build and to plant—declares the Lord. 29In those days, they shall no longer say, “Parents have eaten sour grapes and children’s teeth are blunted.” 30But every one shall die for his own sins: whosoever eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be blunted.      Jeremiah 31/27-30 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

31See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. 32It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers, when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, a covenant which they broke, though I espoused them—declares the Lord. 33But such is the covenant I will make with the House of Israel after these days—declares the Lord: I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts. Then I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34No longer will they need to teach one another and say to one another, “Heed the Lord“; for all of them, from the least of them to the greatest, shall heed Me—declares the Lord.
For I will forgive their iniquities,
And remember their sins no more.     Jeremiah 31/31-34 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

38See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when the city shall be rebuilt for the Lord from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate; 39and the measuring line shall go straight out to the Gareb Hill, and then turn toward Goah. 40And the entire Valley of the Corpses and Ashes, and all the fields as far as the Wadi Kidron, and the corner of the Horse Gate on the east, shall be holy to the Lord. They shall never again be uprooted or overthrown.     Jeremiah 31/38-40 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

36But now, assuredly, thus said the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning this city of which you say, “It is being delivered into the hands of the king of Babylon through the sword, through famine, and through pestilence”: 37See, I will gather them from all the lands to which I have banished them in My anger and wrath, and in great rage; and I will bring them back to this place and let them dwell secure. 38They shall be My people, and I will be their God. 39I will give them a single heart and a single nature to revere Me for all time, and it shall be well with them and their children after them. 40And I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them and that I will treat them graciously; and I will put into their hearts reverence for Me, so that they do not turn away from Me. 41I will delight in treating them graciously, and I will plant them in this land faithfully, with all My heart and soul.     Jeremiah 32/36-41 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

16In this vein have those who revere the Lord been talking to one another. The Lord has heard and noted it, and a scroll of remembrance has been written at His behest concerning those who revere the Lord and esteem His name. 17And on the day that I am preparing, said the Lord of Hosts, they shall be My treasured possession; I will be tender toward them as a man is tender toward a son who ministers to him. 18And you shall come to see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between him who has served the Lord and him who has not served Him.    Malachi 3/16-18 Tanach JPS 1985.

 

22Be mindful of the Teaching of My servant Moses, whom I charged at Horeb with laws and rules for all Israel.

23Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the Lord. 24He shall reconcile parents with children and children with their parents, so that, when I come, I do not strike the whole land with utter destruction.
Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before
the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the Lord.
     Malachi 3/22-24 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

1But a shoot shall grow out of the stump of Jesse, A twig shall sprout from his stock.
2The spirit of the Lord shall alight upon him: A spirit of wisdom and insight, A spirit of counsel and valor, A spirit of devotion and reverence for the Lord.     Isaiah 11/1-2 Tanach JPS 1985.

 

Thus said the Lord, your Lord,
Your God who champions His people:
Herewith I take from your hand
The cup of reeling,
The bowl, the cup of My wrath;
You shall never drink it again.

I will put it in the hands of your tormentors,
Who have commanded you,
“Get down, that we may walk over you”—
So that you made your back like the ground,
Like a street for passersby.     Isaiah 51/22-23 Tanakh JPS 1985.

 

Commentary:

The verses from Ezekiel 33 show the reality of his audience. They did not believe that he was a prophet. This is a good example of the prophet saying the destruction of Jerusalem would happen because the people would not stop their sinful ways and it happens because G-d’s prophet is not recognized or heeded.

G-d had already foretold through Isaiah that Jerusalem would fall and all of Israel would be deported from the promised lands. And that G-d would banish the line of the Kings of Judah from ever ruling over Israel again by raising up a twig from the stump of that felled ancestral tree of Jesse. The felled and banished line of Jesus who could not fulfill Isaiah 11/2 and who being unblemished could not be the sinful, sorrowful and suffering man crushed with disease of Isaiah 53 known as the “Leper Scholar” in the Babylon Talmud.

G-d knew they would not listen to His prophet. Ezekiel’s purpose did not prosper. And G-d knew his purpose would not prosper long before the days of Ezekiel.

G-d said to Ezekiel “And when it comes-behold it is coming, and they will know that a prophet was in their midst. And Rashi commented “And when it comes: the evil to them. behold it is coming: for, indeed, it is ready to come; then they will know that your words were not a jest, but that a true prophet was in their midst.”

And Jerusalem fell and the rest of Judah was deported.

In Ezekiel 34 G-d says:

“I am going to deal with the shepherds! I will demand a reckoning of them for My flock, and I will dismiss them from tending the flock. The shepherds shall not tend themselves any more; for I will rescue My flock from their mouths, and it shall not be their prey.”

And,

“Here am I! I am going to take thought for My flock and I will seek them out. 12As a shepherd seeks out his flock when some [animals] in his flock have gotten separated, so I will seek out My flock, I will rescue them from all the places to which they were scattered on a day of cloud and gloom. 13I will take them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them to their own land, and will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses and in all the settled portions of the land.”

[And G-d did just that with the gentile HaMoshiach Cyrus of Persia who opened the way for all twelve tribes to return with the tribe of the Levites among them from the Assyrian/Babylon exile forgiven of all sins and they rebuilt the Temple of G-d.]

And then G-d said:

“Then I will appoint a single shepherd over them to tend them—My servant David. He shall tend them, he shall be a shepherd to them. 24I the Lord will be their God, and My servant David shall be a ruler among them—I the Lord have spoken. 25And I will grant them a covenant of friendship.”

But that did not happen.

That is for the Roman exiles and dispersal of the Jewish people throughout the world when Elijah returns with the angel of the covenant of sin forgiveness for G-d’s gracious return to Jerusalem. All will be forgiven between G-d and His wife, His bride, His children the Jewish people. They will be friends again. The covenant of friendship and sin forgiveness in a time to come is when Jerusalem has been rebuilt and they will never be uprooted or defeated again.

That is when the twig of the stump of Jesse will arise. G-d tells the Jewish people when that time is. He begins in Jeremiah 31/27-28 with:

“See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when I will sow the House of Israel and the House of Judah with seed of men and seed of cattle; and just as I was watchful over them to uproot and to pull down, to overthrow and to destroy and to bring disaster, so I will be watchful over them to build and to plant—declares the Lord.”

This is when the Jewish people return to the promised land and make it bloom again.

G-d says in Jeremiah 31/38 that the time to come is:

“when the city shall be rebuilt for the Lord from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate; 39and the measuring line shall go straight out to the Gareb Hill, and then turn toward Goah. 40And the entire Valley of the Corpses and Ashes, and all the fields as far as the Wadi Kidron, and the corner of the Horse Gate on the east, shall be holy to the Lord. They shall never again be uprooted or overthrown.”

And this is Jerusalem today. For so long as they are never uprooted or overthrown again. And that is what the day of the L-rd is for.

The time to come in Jeremiah 31/31-34 when G-d declares He will make a new covenant with the House of Israel not like the covenant He made with them out of Egypt which they broke but He married them anyway. A new covenant for when they return to Him in the lands of Abraham. And why a new covenant? They have been separated though not divorced and He has awaited their return to Him for over two thousand years.

See, a time is coming—declares the Lord—when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers, when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, a covenant which they broke, though I espoused them—declares the Lord. But such is the covenant I will make with the House of Israel after these days—declares the Lord: I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts. Then I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No longer will they need to teach one another and say to one another, “Heed the Lord“; for all of them, from the least of them to the greatest, shall heed Me—declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquities, And remember their sins no more.”

G-d does not say how He will change the knowledge of the Jewish people of the Torah and how it should be interpreted by all Jews or how He will change the emotions and thinking of His people towards Him. There are a lot of hard feelings between many of the Jewish people and G-d.

G-d says that His forgiving their iniquities and remembering their sins no more will accomplish this putting of His teaching into their inmost being and inscribing it upon their hearts; but one has to understand G-d and His scripture of the Hebrew bible from His perspective and the manner in which it was written to know what this means.

If G-d does not use His power to change the knowledge and hearts of the Jewish people in His teachings and towards Him the forgiveness of sins alone will not accomplish this.

The Jewish people and all of the different ways of interpreting the Torah by different branches of Judaism are to diverse and opinionated. Rarely is there an accord and meeting of the minds by the Sages of the Talmud, the Rabbi’s today and the people in general.

G-d has never changed the will of men and placed knowledge into their minds or changed their emotions and feelings towards Him in His power. He spent forty years in the desert with Moses and the Israelites changing the minds and hearts of the Hebrews with His Teachings He gave to Moses at Horeb.

And He became their G-d and they became His people at Horeb (Sinai). Just like the covenant to be made in a time to come:

“I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts. Then I will be their G-d, and they shall be My people.”

So in the desert for forty years with Moses as the messenger of the Teachings of G-d and all the experiences of the people when G-d dwelt among the tents of the Israelites is what this means:

“I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts.”

It is G-d’s way to use men for His purposes and in Isaiah 53/10 G-d crushes a man with disease so that if he made himself an offering for guilt he might see offspring and have long life and that through him the Lord’s purpose might prosper. This purpose which might prosper is not stated. It is the purpose of Elijah in Malachi 3.

And it is the same purpose of Moses in the desert to the promised land as the messenger of the Teachings of G-d and all the experiences of the people when G-d dwelt among the tents of the Israelites when the first covenant was made of “I will be your G-d, and you will be My people”. Elijah is the prophet like Moses for he comes with the same covenant.

And then G-d said in Jeremiah 32:

“But now, assuredly, thus said the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning this city of which you say, “It is being delivered into the hands of the king of Babylon through the sword, through famine, and through pestilence”: See, I will gather them from all the lands to which I have banished them in My anger and wrath, and in great rage; and I will bring them back to this place and let them dwell secure. They shall be My people, and I will be their God. I will give them a single heart and a single nature to revere Me for all time, and it shall be well with them and their children after them. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them and that I will treat them graciously; and I will put into their hearts reverence for Me, so that they do not turn away from Me. 41I will delight in treating them graciously, and I will plant them in this land faithfully, with all My heart and soul.

And G-d said in Ezekiel 34:

23Then I will appoint a single shepherd over them to tend them—My servant David. He shall tend them, he shall be a shepherd to them. 24I the Lord will be their God, and My servant David shall be a ruler among them—I the Lord have spoken. 25And I will grant them a covenant of friendship.

The covenant of sin forgiveness and the covenant of friendship go together for both the Assyrian/Babylon exiles and the Roman exiles and dispersal. “They shall be My people, and I will be their God” is the heart and soul of the covenant of sin forgiveness. G-d treating the Jewish people graciously is His way of expressing friendship.

The only difference between the two exiles and returns to the promised land is that G-d’s servant David did not appear after the return of the Assyrian/Babylon exile. And in Isaiah 51 G-d’s cup of reeling and wrath is taken from the Jewish people and passed to their tormentors. Christianity. This is primarily accomplished by the true Moshiach arriving who is Elijah, the prophet like Moses and the descendant of David through Solomon. G-d’s righteous servant of Isaiah 53.

The Roman exiles and dispersal have returned and G-d has raised up the twig of the stump of Jesse who is G-d’s righteous servant described in Isaiah 53 who is Elijah of Malachi 3 and the prophet like Moses. The spirit and person of the spirit of the Holy G-d alighted upon me in 2007 in fulfillment of Isaiah 11/1-2.

And with G-d forgiving the sins of the Jewish people in Jeremiah 31 G-d says this will happen:

I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts. Then I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No longer will they need to teach one another and say to one another, “Heed the Lord“; for all of them, from the least of them to the greatest, shall heed Me–“

And then in Jeremiah 32 the sin forgiveness causes this to happen instead:

“I will give them a single heart and a single nature to revere Me for all time, and it shall be well with them and their children after them. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them and that I will treat them graciously; and I will put into their hearts reverence for Me, so that they do not turn away from Me.”

Now the teachings of G-d are not mentioned just a reverence by the Jewish people and their children for G-d and the friendship of G-d.

And then in Malachi 3 the teachings of G-d are brought back to what happens when the forgiveness of G-d is given to the Jewish people. But this time it is not the poetic ideal of the teachings of G-d written on every heart but the teachings of Elijah who comes with the angel of the covenant of sin forgiveness (the very angel who G-d sent before the Israelites in the exodus with Moses that His Name was in as the story repeats with the prophet like Moses who comes from Edom in Isaiah 63, the Christian world):

Be mindful of the Teaching of My servant Moses, whom I charged at Horeb with laws and rules for all Israel. Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the Lord. He shall reconcile parents with children and children with their parents, so that, when I come, I do not strike the whole land with utter destruction.”

Many will be marked for the scroll of remembrance and many will not according to the last words on the subject of what is caused by G-d’s forgiveness of sins in Malachi 3. The teachings of G-d will not be written on every heart but many hearts will revere the L-rd and many will return to Synagogue and Judaism simply from the new knowledge that the man of Isaiah 53 is Elijah and G-d’s prophecies are being fulfilled in him.

Elijah is also a man clothed in linen a priest of G-d Most High and a king (leader) forever by the words of G-d in “A New Song (Psalm) of G-d” after the manner of Melchizedek and David who G-d uses to test the reverence and heeding of the shepherds and flocks. This marker of the righteous is seen in a vision of Ezekiel:

“And among them was another, clothed in linen, with a writing case at his waist. He called to the man clothed in linen with the writing case at his waist; and the Lord said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who moan and groan because of all the abominations that are committed in it.”

This is forgiveness of sin of the righteous who G-d “marks”. In Malachi 3/16 G-d has a scroll of remembrance that has been written at His behest concerning those who revere the Lord and esteem His name in the day of the L-rd that He is preparing. Those who are forgiven of sin by G-d’s covenant for a time to come that is with Elijah and the angel of the covenant who already revere and esteem Him and those who come to revere and esteem Him.

How Elijah is received and welcomed and these writings accepted by the religious leaders of the Jewish people and taken to their followers, groups and Synagogues will tell G-d if they revere and heed Him. The bar is set high for the shepherds of the flocks. As G-d said in Ezekiel 34/10 :

Thus said the Lord God: I am going to deal with the shepherds! I will demand a reckoning of them for My flock, and I will dismiss them from tending the flock. The shepherds shall not tend themselves any more; for I will rescue My flock from their mouths, and it shall not be their prey”

Ezekiel is put through the same soul and self refinement as G-d’s righteous servant and bears the punishment of the Houses of Israel and Judah and his purpose did not prosper. G-d’s righteous servant of Isaiah 53 bears the punishment of the Jewish people and his purpose “might” prosper. And that purpose is found in Malachi 3.

Just like Ezekiel who was not recognized as a prophet of G-d by his audience and utter destruction came to Jerusalem it will be the same for Elijah who must reconcile the Jewish people to Judaism or G-d will smite the land with utter destruction. The shepherds and flocks have to recognize Elijah from these writings for this not to happen. Writings given to me by G-d word by word so that His purpose will prosper. Just as the Torah was written by Moses.

And the reason for this scroll of remembrance has been told to me. It is not that G-d has a quota of how many of the Jewish people turn back to Him through the practice of Judaism or He will bring utter destruction to the land.

It is because the Jewish people in Israel have to believe in Elijah and the teachings of these writings for the Temple to be rebuilt. Rebuilding the Temple will cause destruction. Just not utter destruction that will come from the nations. It always does.

But if the nations see and hear of the last prophet of G-d and he is fulfilling the prophecies of Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Malachi and he is the reason the Temple is rebuilt the repeating story of destruction and exile will be stopped. The Jewish people will never be overthrown or uprooted again.

And the nations will know that G-d dwells with His people again. As the covenant of sin forgiveness for a time to come says: “Then I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” My people are the Roman exiles who have returned to the lands of Israel and made it bloom again. The Jewish people.

“Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before
the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the Lord.”

The awesome day of the L-rd is the passing of the cup of His wrath to Christianity. The fearful day of the L-rd are the battles with Islam and Palestine to clear the Temple Mount and the building of G-d’s Temple for His return to Jerusalem.

Isaiah 11 and Isaiah 53, Devotion and an Abode

Moses, Ezekiel and Elijah would be familiar with this process of refinement. So would the captain of the L-rd’s host and the man who wrestled with Jacob (Israel) all night. It is a way for G-d and the angel of His Presence to interact with His creation. Any prophet who wrote for G-d also went through this process to some degree.

The process of soul and self refinement changes a man greatly. If you write for G-d as did all of His prophets you suffer for this great change by chastisement and punishment whether you offer yourself for guilt or not. It is just G-d’s way and He does not change.

Isaiah 11/10 says “The stock of Jesse that has remained standing Shall become a standard to peoples— Nations shall seek his counsel And his abode shall be honored.” Isaiah 53/8 says that “By oppressive judgment he was taken away, Who could describe his abode?…..”

Isaiah 53/9 says “And his grave was set among the wicked, And with the rich, in his death—…….” and in 53/12 the L-rd says “Assuredly, I will give him the many as his portion, He shall receive the multitude as his spoil……”

The abode of the righteous servant is humble when the L-rd cuts him off from the world of material things and society in Isaiah 53 and in the end the abode of the servant is one to be honored in Isaiah 11.

From a poor man to a rich man with a portion and spoil and an abode to be honored by the many and the multitude and all who love the Jewish people, Israel and HaShem.

Messiah and the Spirit of G-d

“Rabbi Shimon ben Lakish interpreted these verses with the kingships of exile. the earth was chaos – this is Babylon. and void – this is Persia… and darkness – this is Greece, who darkened the eyes of Israel with their decrees… on the face of the deep – this the wicked Kingdom [of Rome], whose power cannot be measured, just as the great deep cannot be plumbed. and the spirit of God hovered – this is the spirit of the Messiah.” (Genesis Rabbah 2:4)

The spirit of G-d is not the spirit of the Messiah. The Messiah is a man that G-d makes suitable for His purpose who is born with a human spirit. The spirit of G-d alights upon him late in a sinful suffering life. He is counted a sinner and diseased.

He is not born from above first and then born into a human body. He did not exist before creation and G-d is not talking to him when G-d says to His spirit (a person G-d created) “let us form man in our image, our likeness”. He is not the Word who was with G-d and was G-d and became flesh in Jesus as Christians believe.

The Messiah is unique among all of the men of the Tanakh however. G-d crushes him with disease (puts him to grief with illness) so that he will offer himself for his guilt and the guilt of the Jewish people to suffer chastisement, bruising, crushing and punishment by G-d’s hand and power until he is suitable for the prosperity of G-d’s purpose.

G-d does the same refinement with Ezekiel to make him suitable for G-d’s purpose and Ezekiel bears the punishment for the House of Israel and Judah. Punishment for their sins. And the House of Israel and Judah were still punished. Ezekiel did not take their punishment he shared it with them just as the righteous servant shares their guilt. The Jewish people are refined in the fire of affliction and so is Ezekiel and the righteous servant of Isaiah 53.

He is the prophet like Moses a redeemer, Elijah the messenger a teacher and herald of the time of the new covenant of the forgiveness of sin, and a descendant of David who battles and wages war (a man after G-d’s own heart). He is by the words of G-d “My righteous servant who makes the many righteous”.

He goes through the experiences of Job with disease, of Jonah and near death and of Ezekiel in the bitterness and fury of his spirit in the hand of G-d. The spirit of G-d alights upon him. They are friends not the same person.

Then another great Medieval thinker, Nachmanides (who was a frequent critic of Maimonides’ hyper-rationalism), comes along and defends the idea that the Torah could be embedded with prophetic allusions to future events. He suggests, in fact, that the Bible can be read as a kind of a long code, with all sorts of secret information encrypted in the form of jumbled letters, numerical patterns, and subtle hints.

Yet Nachmanides isn’t the first to suggest that prophetic clues are hidden in the Torah. In fact, he is not even the first to see Hanukkah in the Torah. That tradition begins with the rabbis of the midrash. And they were even bolder, for they did not bother waiting for the appearance of a Menorah. They found Hanukkah almost immediately, in the very opening lines of Genesis:

“In the beginning, God created heaven and earth — and the earth was chaos and void…

A Day in the Life of G-d’s Righteous Servant of Isaiah 53

15747365_1841969432745150_3934858448013595231_n

In the first years of my punishment for guilt by the hand and power of G-d as His righteous servant described in Isaiah 53 He gave me incredible visions that served as story lines for what we did and what we talked about during that time.

The most involved was water in the Temple and it is a good example of how G-d would use any (and all when it was said and done) of the stories of the Tanakh and the New Testament to teach me the scripture and use it in my daily life for chastisement, punishment, bruising and crushing.

One summer as I was being prepared suitable for G-d’s purpose He had me quit working and I was living on my last dollars at a weekly hotel outside of Houston in a rural area. G-d was cutting me off from the world of material things and association with society to fulfill the prophecy of being cut off and taken from the world of Isaiah 53/8. I was in his grasp every moment of every day my every move at his direction, listening and talking to Him.

This writing is of a vision based on a story of a vision by Ezekiel. G-d taught me through much mental duress and anguish how to prepare for a vision in a meditative state of mind. It takes an hour or more and you cannot let yourself fall asleep.

One night after I had read Ezekiel 47/1-12 discussing every line of these verses with G-d I had a vision of entering the Temple gate on the east side, the Temple as I have seen it in pictures rebuilt though the sacrificial altar in front was not there. I am looking directly at the entrance in the front just inside the walls and from beneath the doors water is pouring out and flowing down the steps.

I looked down and see my bare feet are in water up to my ankles. G-d always speaks to me during these visions. I have had visions of angels but they never speak to me.

The next day I went to the Addicks Dam Reservoir just outside the city limits. The rain had been coming down hard filling the reservoir which is usually just a dry low area of land with levy’s to keep the water from the city.

G-d had me take off my shoes which was unusual and head to a path that went up and over the levy which is about 30 yards high in walking distance and into a barren forest.

1″He led me back to the entrance of the Temple, and I found that water was issuing from below the platform of the Temple—eastward, since the Temple faced east—but the water was running out at the south of the altar, under the south wall of the Temple. 2Then he led me out by way of the northern gate and led me around to the outside of the outer gate that faces in the direction of the east; and I found that water was gushing from [under] the south wall. 3As the man went on eastward with a measuring line in his hand, he measured off a thousand cubits and led me across the water; the water was ankle deep. 4Then he measured off another thousand and led me across the water; the water was knee deep. He measured off a further thousand and led me across the water; the water…

Index: Keith Ellis McCarty, Esquire ~ Theological Interpretive Commentary

 

Commentary:

I am G-d’s righteous servant of Isaiah 53 the teacher of righteousness. The scripture testifies of me and Moses wrote of me. I am the prophet like Moses. I speak to G-d face to face, G-d speaks to me as one friend to another, G-d speaks to me whenever He so desires, I speak to G-d whenever I so desire and I write His words exactly as He speaks them to me. Just like Moses.

That includes all of the commentaries on this wordpress site. G-d teaches me the material and then dictates the commentary which I type. He makes it a very involved process with many edits and changes to make me feel that I am participating but when the “publish” button is pressed it is at His command and the writing and commentary is all His.

This is scripture that has not been canonized. Scripture written not by divine inspiration but written at the command and direction of G-d just as The Torah was written by Moses. The Writings and The Prophets of the Tanakh were written for the most part in the same manner:

Elijah Was A Host Of The L-rd of Hosts In The Scripture (II Kings, Chapter 2, Verse 9 Tanakh)

Let a double portion*: *Translators note: Lit. “two-thirds”; of Zech. 13.8. 8Throughout the land—declares the Lord—Two-thirds shall perish, shall die, And one-third of it shall survive. Zech. 13/8 Tanakh JPS 1985.

of your spirit pass on to me: How is a double portion of spirit two thirds of a spirit? That is a question and it is also the answer to how Elijah is identified when he returns with the angel of the covenant of sin forgiveness of the Jewish people. He is a host of the L-rd of Hosts. I am the Lord’s righteous servant of Isaiah 53 upon whom “The spirit of the Lord shall alight…” (Isaiah 11/2). The spirit of the Holy G-d who is a person has come to me and it can be inferred from this passage he had come to Elijah. It is the only way to reconcile a double portion with a two thirds portion of the spirit of Elijah. Where the person of the spirit is so is the person of the Holy G-d, whose person is also of spirit when My Name is in His spirit. He is the angel of His Presence. They are always together. That would be two persons of spirit with the spirit of Elijah, or three persons within and without one man, but all three are separate and distinct never forming a one. Elijah, who worked many miracles is taken to heaven and now Elisha takes up his mantle and begins performing the same miracles. And the power of all miracles is G-d who is inseparable from the person of the spirit and now they are with Elisha. Two thirds of the three persons of spirit that were within and without Elijah alighting upon and within Elisha, with the one-third that is Elijah in heaven. The “double portion” of G-d and the spirit of the Holy G-d being “two-thirds” of the total spirit within and without Elijah.

II Kings, Chapter 2, Verse 9 Tanakh: Jewish Publication Society 1985 New Translation Hebrew to English (begun in 1955)

Commentary:

9As they were crossing, Elijah said to Elisha, “Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?” Elisha answered, “Let a double portion* of your spirit pass on to me.” This is Elijah revealing that he knows he is being taken away that day.
