TWIN TIMELINES: TAKE TWO
One of the most fascinating portions of the study of prophecy is the way the earthly events relate to what the Scriptures teach us about things in the Spiritual realm. That situation is further complicated by determining if the wordly events are mirroring a development engineered by the “principalities and powers” (Colossians 2:15) of the heavens, or if they are related to something that is foreordained by the Lord Himself, from the throne of glory.
A good case in point is the fashion in which developments in the earthly Jerusalem form the inverse of events in the New Jerusalem, which is described as the blessed locale of the believers.
“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride for her husband” (Revelation 21:2).
The Scriptures indicate that this “city” is not a city in the conventional sense, but the people that are redeemed by the LORD are actually the “city” itself, as the New Testament tells us that as the “body of Christ” (I Corinthians 12:27), we are actually inhabited by the LORD on a personal level that indicates His presence.
Furthermore, the inhabitants that thrive in New Jerusalem are there because they have chosen to be there, they have met the conditions for entrance, and they are filled with the praise of our king and our God.
The reason I mention these facts is because there is an opposite of this (the aforementioned “inversion,” which is found on the earth), because while the Scriptures tell us we function as the “temple” of God (with His presence dwelling within the believers), the Word also tells us that Physical Jerusalem does not enjoy the glory of God’s presence.
To illustrate this point, the Apostle Paul, in writing to the Christians at Galatia, made an analogy of this point by referencing the two sons of Abraham, the father of the nations.
“Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman” (Galatians 4:22).
The Apostle recounted the historical record in Genesis where Abraham was promised that his wife Sarai – even though she was old and obviously past the age of child bearing – was promised by the LORD she would yet bear a child.
As the tale unfolds, because she does not believe the LORD will actually do this, Sarai gives Abram (their names are changed later to Sarah and Abraham) her bondmaid Hagar, a fertile young servant girl that Sarai hoped would have a son that she could raise.
Years after the slave girl bears a son, Sarah miraculously has a son herself in accord with God’s promise, and bans Hagar’s son so he will not be a rival for her child (who is named Isaac), and his father’s affections.
Before the friction that inevitably occurred between Sarah and Hagar which caused Abraham to send away the bondmaid and her then 14 year old son Ishmael, the angel of the LORD told Abraham that God would continue to bless him through Isaac.
“My covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear” (Genesis 17:21).
Over a thousand years later, the Apostle Paul noted that the promise of God that He had determined would go through the lineage of Isaac, was analogous to the two Jerusalems – the Earthly Jerusalem which served as the home of Physical Israel, and the Heavenly Jerusalem which Revelation tells us is the Spiritual City of God, comprised of the Christian believers.
After reminding the Galatians that Abraham had two sons – one born of a bondwoman and one born of the free woman Sarah – he compared the two sons to the bondage of the law in the Old Covenant, and the freedom inherent in the grace revealed in the New Covenant of Jesus Christ.
“Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is [H]agar…for this…answereth to [earthly] Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children” (Galatians 4:24,25).
He then wrote that the Spiritual Jerusalem “which is above” (Galatians 4:26) is liberated by Christ, and we, like Isaac, are free.
“So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman…[but] we…as Isaac was, are the children of promise” (Galatians 4:31,28).
This is remarkable on many levels, the first of which is the fact that although Paul says the lesson is “allegorical,” it is undeniable that Abraham did indeed have two sons, and the successive events, recorded in Scripture, definitively establishes this is a genuine historical account.
In other words, the very lives of these people is historical and prophetic, as the fate of Jerusalem Sequentially Recapitulates the cycle, and on a much larger scale, the account was doubled!
We’ve previously explored this supernatural connection as the Shadow and the Substance, with the “Substance” the Spiritual, and the “Shadow” a type of earthy manifestation, or even a reflection of the heavenly reality.
We’ve also quantified what is called the Mystery of Thirds, where the LORD decrees that “two parts” of the creation – representing the Flesh and Blood existence of “them that dwell on the earth” (Revelation 6:10, 14:6) who are the “natural man” (I Corinthians 2:14) that is scheduled to perish, while the LORD preserves the Spiritual “third part” that dwells in the heavens (Revelation 12:12).
“And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein” (Zechariah 13:8).
However, there is an inverse to this, and as Satan seeks to emulate the LORD and pose as God, his “shadow” inspires a counterfeit.
In this regard, when the Devil was working to bring about the birth of the Little Horn state that is the modern nation of Israel, he was working through the agency of the ungodly earthly vessel seen in the United Nations.
The plan that emerged envisioned a partition of Israel’s ancient land with a third of the land given to the Physical Jewish people, a third of the land given to the Palestinians (totaling the “two parts”), and the “third part” that is the city of Jerusalem was to reserved for the UN itself!
Earlier, I noted how the relationship between the earthly and the heavenly (also known as the Shadow and the Substance) can also be driven by the “rulers of the darkness of this world” (Ephesians 6:12), instead of the righteousness which is found in Christ.
In this regard, the LORD has instructed us concerning how we may recognize whether the earthly vessels are of God, or they are manifestations of Satan’s infernal spirit.
“For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes” (Luke 6:44).
Indeed, in the lengthy studies of the Triuniverse previously communicated through Christian Media, we’ve shown how the language of Prophetic Metaphor has identified the “thorns” and the “briars” (seen here as a “bramble bush”) are euphemisms for the “two parts” that are “cut off and die” (Zechariah 13:8).
“And thou, son of man be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their word, though briers and thorns be with thee…but that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected , and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned” (Ephesians 2:6, Hebrews 6:8).
Obviously, the “son of man,” who dwells in “New Jerusalem” is the third part that is preserved, while the two parts of Flesh and Blood are “cut off and die” (Zechariah 13:8).
In the inverse of this Heavenly architecture is the New World Order, in which the Satanically inhabited vessel of the UN created the “Little Horn” state of Israel, with the “two parts” and the “third part” of the LORD’s moves counterfeited by the Beast.
Research shows that the UN – in the “partition” plan approved by the two thirds majority of the General Assembly of nations required by the UN charter – envisioned dividing Palestine into three “parts” – a Jewish sector, an Arab sector, and the city of Jerusalem which was to be “internationalized” under the stewardship of the United Nations!
“The United Nations convened in a special session of the General Assembly. The General Assembly of all nations again deliberated at length, and agreed by a more than two thirds majority to the partition of Palestine. It fixed the date when this partition was to take place and when the Jewish and the Arab states were to be established.
On Nov 29th  the General Assembly of the United Nations [also]voted to make Jerusalem an international city” (The New York Post, Immanuel Velikovsky, March 26, June 8 1948 – re-published in The Formation of Israel, by Christian Media).
This political decision, which resurrected the long dead Flesh and Blood nation of Israel, placed the New World Order in the position of the LORD who created the original Physical Israel, and later translated Israel into a Spiritual House in order to redeem His beloved.
This inversion of the Scripturally recorded plan for the promised redemption bears the fingerprints of the Devil, as the Deadly Wound – which was inflicted upon Old Covenant Israel by the Lord Himself because of their infidelity -- was “healed” by the Beast.
“And I saw one of [the Beast’s] heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3).
But how the other half of the divided house of the Antichrist Beast – which is the spirit symbolized as the False Prophet in the holy book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ – convinced the Spiritually constituted body of Jesus Christ that the Flesh and Blood, Christ blaspheming Israel of antiquity is still the “chosen” of God, will have to wait for another installment of Twin Timelines: Take Two.
