We can look at the elect as silver, but have become dross means they loose their elect position through becoming one with the world of chaos and mayhem and have become dross which isn’t a metal at all, they have fallen from grace and have joined Isaiah’s perdition category.
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Religion wants no judgment and a salvation rooted in the past so it can, “do as thy will in the present.”
This THE covenant – the book of the covenant witnesses. Not just the physical heaven and earth, but those who reside in them – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – Heb 12:1 the hall of faith – Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses.
4 Oy sinful nation, a people loaded with iniquity, a zera of evildoers, children that are corrupt: they have forsaken יהוה, they have provoked the Kadosh-One of Yisrael to anger, and they have gone backwards.
From addressing his people personally as “Israel…my people” יהוה now addresses them impersonally as “a nation” signifying their alienated state.
It’s really akin to addressing ones self as a “Christian” – signifying an alienated state or “Israel…my people.”
Acts 24:5… For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes: Gal 6:16…and as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of יהוה .
11:26 And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. The word CRETIN – in the Gk Christianos – the Mandean deity of the sun – Christ Helios.
The Alexandrian Osiris was Christos, the Romans inherited the way the Persians worshiped the sun under the title Chrestos Mithras, where Chrestos took the Roman interpretation of good, pure, sacred or holy…
REGRESSION: Additional regression occurs from this peoples simply going astray to the burdening themselves with “sin” which leads to “wrongdoing,” the “offspring of wrongdoers” then turns into “perverse children,” meaning the next generation has now become thoroughly corrupt forsaking יהוה and spurning him finally to become willful defiant acts.
5 Why should you be beaten any more? Yet you will continue in apostasy: the whole head is sick, and the whole lev is faint. 6 From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness; but wounds, and bruises, and open sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither soothed with ointment.
They have lapsed into total apostasy – nazoru amor signifies that יהוהs people have become entirely estranged from him.
To be smitten by Elohim through plagues and terrors constitutes יהוהs final attempt to bring his people back from the brink through “compelled performance” to repent of evil. But there persistent waywardness compounds their plight.
When homelessness, illness and disease become rampant it reflects societies sickness in mind and body – the final circle around the drain is when society begins to mutilate its body at the applause of the crowds in the town square – this יהוה warned us of in Vayikra 19
“lo natan seret basar” “you shall not cut thy flesh” Thou shalt not (H3808) let thy cattle (H929) gender( H7250) with a diverse kind: (H3610) thou shalt not( H3808) sow( H2232) thy field (H7704) with mingled seed: (H3)
Allegorically the people “head” or leadership and their “heart” or core institutions, their entire establishment, political, religious has denigrated into a pathological, perverse state.
Isaiah speaks on two distinct levels simultaneously and the the Israel he addresses is primarily two:
1. those who were יהוה covenant people anciently
2. those who are יהוה covenant people at the end time – as Shaul puts it to the
Galatians 6:16 – the Israel of Elohim – And as many as walk according to the rules of the covenant, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of Elohim.
The end-time Israel designate is to those of us who have covenanted with Israel’s יהוה.
Israel’s ancient apostasy typifies and end-time apostasy…but there is hope, salvation is reserved for a remnant that repent!
1.8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
Israel as a woman and יהוה as her husband. Now His whole people have apostastiszed will they survive Assyria’s destructions, a small remnant called Zion or the Daughter of Zions represent the spiritual harvest category of Israel because of their faithfulness to his covenant. What is left is the remnant, the tares are taken away first in the rapture the wheat is stored within the barn.
To survive means to return from the exile, to come out of Babylon, to survive the crisis, the chaos, to rise above emotion and circumstance – to stand, “as a flagstaff on a mountaintop, a doleman on a hill (Isa. 30:17).
FORMLESSNESS: the ascended man should seek formlessness; where noting infuriates you, a state of detachment from reaction where formlessness which disorientates those who seek to argue and debate.
With formlessness you train yourself to take noting personally, never show defensiveness. When you’re defensive you show your emotions which reveals what…a clear form…any easy target. formlessness is crucial to ascend.
Emotions are the Achilles heel – emotions show a nerve has been hit. So train yourself to take nothing personally to thrive in the exile. Only the formless can thrive in todays targeted environment – also thing about lowering your public footprint until you become formless.
Formlessness is like a shelter or cottage in a vineyard, vineyard denotes the Promised Land – Israel, the cottage refers to יהוהs cloud of glory, His protection – fire and cloud, a refuge from the downpour, it also suggests the presence of a watchman – Moshiach – the guardian of Israel who guards the fields from thieves and wild animals.
Isa 1:9 Except the יהוה of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
Isa 1:10 Hear the word of the יהוה, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our יהוה, ye people of Gomorrah.
The few survivors are like unto Lot and his two daughters, representing a pattern of what happens in the end time when the angels or two witnesses escort us out of the nations – some will look back as Babylon falls in an hour, others who have set their trust in יהוה and set their hand to the plow will not look back – who are you?
Our devotion to יהוה has to be greater than our devotion to anything else. When our devotion becomes but a shallow version of his law and word it lacks the power to withstand evil, this is how the church has embraced the woke mob – their devotion is but a shallow version of his TORAH and word therefore it lacks the power to withstand evil.
Isa 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the יהוה: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
Isa 1:12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
Isa 1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Isa 1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
Isa 1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
Isa 1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
Isa 1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the יהוה: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
The word blood not only implies extreme injustice, it is a catchall for the legal system as a whole. “Hands filled with blood” alludes to violence, murder and abortion – these a societal failures and abuses that have serious ripple effects on the psyche of society as a whole – leading to addiction, suicide and a generation of hopelessness.
There’s two ways to interpret, “with blood on your hands.” Is יהוה asking a question (there is no grammar, no punctuation in Hebrew), “with blood on your hands, do you still imagine you can become clean?”
Isa 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Isa 1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the יהוה hath spoken it.
Refusing to repent will place in motion a natural law – whereby the creator will empower your enemies against you – the natural forces of chaos and mayhem.
Isa 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
Isa 1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
The Hebrew term for silver is kesep, or money its meaning here is a worthless or devalued currency.
On a spiritual note, we can look at the elect as silver, but have become dross means they loose their elect position through becoming one with the world of chaos and mayhem and have become dross which isn’t a metal at all, they have fallen from grace and have joined Isaiah’s perdition category.
Isa 1:23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
Isa 1:24 Therefore saith the יהוה, the יהוה of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:
Isa 1:25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:
Moral degeneracy, the appointment of leaders reflect the people themselves – they parallel each other and their spiritual condition holds out little hope for the rising generation. Beware when rituals become a substitute for spirituality.
