It is important to understand who and what Judah and Jerusalem are today, as the prophesies of Isaiah and Jeremiah pertain to them.
The Bible contains the history of the Judean-Christian religion, encoded the symbolism of its stories. There was an Israel and Judah of Judaism, and there is an Israel and Judah of Christianity. The Israel of Christianity is Catholic and Trinity. The Judah of Christianity is Pentecost. What separates Judah from Israel is their baptism in the name of Jesus, which is the true baptism. No man has the power to baptize us “of the Son” or “of the Holy Spirit,” which are spiritual baptisms, the baptism of this Gentile Israel, illegitimate. The children of Isarel were called Judah after their baptism in the Red Sea. This is why it was the tribe of Judah that was chosen to carry the name to Jerusalem, “the mother of us all.” The mother must have the name of the father for the sake of the son.
Israel and Judah separated in baptism, but not in spirit—
“And Jehoshaphat (king of Judah) said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses.” 1 Kings 22:4
A king symbolizes a spirit. The word horse means to skip; also a swallow (from its rapid flight). The spirit of the horse is the spirit of impatience.
“And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.” Jeremiah 3:8
According to the words of Jeremiah, God was married to Israel and Judah, meaning He had an intimate relationship with them. The spirit that caused them to play the harlot spiritually is encoded in the story of Judah, whose daughter-in-law Tamar played the harlot literally. The spirit of Judah is impatience. This Gentile Judah was born in the early 1900’s, bringing revelation of baptism in the name of Jesus. But they got impatient for what was to follow their baptism, as Tamar got impatient while waiting to receive what she had been promised.
“ Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
This Gentile Judah got impatient, lusting for what they were told they would receive, which was the Holy Spirit. But is was never the Holy Spirit they were to receive. Paul perverted the words of Peter.
“And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Spirit since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.” Acts 19:2
Isaiah and Jeremiah’s prophecies pertain to Judah. The Judah of Judaism got impatient while waiting for Moses, during which time they built a false image, breaking God’s spiritual Law, a transgression that placed them under the carnal Law. The JUDAH of today is riding the spirit of the horse by skipping over the spiritual works that would bring them into the exalted states they proclaim through the delusion of their mind. The JERUSALEM of today refers to those that are possessed with the spirit of false peace. The word Jerusalem means founded peaceful. There is peace founded through the power of the mind, which is false peace. And then there is peace founded through the power of the heart, which is true peace— an internal peace obtained through in an internal judgment.
“ I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord. For there are set thrones of judgment… Peace be within the wall, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companion’s sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.” Psalms 122
This new internal state of peace is called NEW JERUSALEM.
