The Standard


And Jacob called unto his sons and said, Gather yourselves together that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come and unto him shall the gathering of the people be...

The Standard is what the people rally around and, therefore, the Prince of Israel is the Personification of the Standard and Ensign.

And Y'hava spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own Standard, with the Ensign of their father's house - far off around the Tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch...

Some who believe in the teaching of the Ten Lost Tribes believe this is where the habit of forming the wagons in a circle came from and is a noted habit of Ephraim in his exile before they came to America.

Psa 20 ¶ To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Y'hava hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee. We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: Y'hava fulfill all thy petitions. Now know I that Y'hava saves his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

Here, once again, the end times Davidic Leader is symbolized by the Standard or Ensign or Banner.

Psa 74 ¶ Maschil of Asaph. O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? Why does thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? We see not our Signs and there is no more any prophet nor any among us any that knows how long.

I have determined that the songs of Asaph are end times in scope and most, if not all of them, apply to Ephraim and here you see them asking the same question that Isaiah did in chapter 6 which was just revealed to myself last Sunday (May 2, 2010) as referring to Ephraim here and how. They don't see any of their ensigns or leaders during the time of their judgment which is the time of trouble of the preceding verse - until such a time that Y'hava raises up their end times Davidic Leader which is crystal clear in the verse following.

Isa 11 ¶ And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

Here not only is the Ensign connected to the Prince but the time of the gathering is mentioned and the Millennial situation is specifically stated in context and thus the Standard is raised at some point in time during the tribulation or the time of Jacob's trouble.

Isa 18 ¶ Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: That sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled! All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifts up an ensign on the mountains and when he blows a trumpet, hear ye. For so Y'hava said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest...

It has been established that Isaiah 18 is referring to end times Ephraim and here the raising of the standard on the mountains occurs at the time of the blowing of the trumpet which is assuredly a reference to the Rapture in 2033 AD though there remains the possibility that it is referring to the start of the invasion of Ephraim in the end days. On a personal note, beyond the rivers of Ethiopia can be seen to be a veiled reference to my conversion to the Oriental Faith in the Coptic Church which gave rise to the Ethiopian Church. The concept of the Prince becoming the embodiment of the Standard is actually a direct reference to my Theosis and becoming like Y'shua (like the angels) and is hinted at in Ezekiel where the two ancestral staffs of Judah and Ephraim become one in the Lord's Hand.

Isa 30 ¶ Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of Y'hava. One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill. And therefore will Y'hava wait, that he may be gracious unto you and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for Y'hava is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. And Y'hava shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. For through the voice of Y'hava shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod. And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which Y'hava shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it. For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of Y'hava, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it...

Once again you have a reference to the Millennium in this passage and the Lord leaving his people until they repent which, ultimately, will be about the mid point of the tribulation which is when the Assyrian of the passage becomes the Babylonian - the Antichrist. His departure is tenatively set for 2013 AD per the Chronolgy from Ezekiel and that of Ezra.

Isa 31 ¶ Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited. And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith Y'hava, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.

The Davidic Leader as the personification of the Standard which the Lost Tribes and Judah gather around at the end of the tribulation strikes fear into the Antichristian army. This is just before the return of Y'shua.

Isa 49 ¶ Listen, O isles, unto me and hearken, ye people, from far; Y'hava hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me and said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified. Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles and set up my standard to the people and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

Note the connection to the previous command to hearken when he lifts up the Standard which is similar to "hear the Rod and who has appointed it" which, as I have shown elsewhere is Y'shua so the Rod is his son - the end times Davidic Leader whose name has been mentionied in Ezekiel, Jeremiah and Hosea and is specifically David. Israel means Prince of God as the end times leader is - similarly to the connection between James and Jacob.

Isa 66 ¶ Thus saith Y'hava, The heaven is my throne and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, says Y'hava, but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

The reference to "house" is, believe it or not, referring to physical offspring and Y'shua ben Y'hava is the one talking so this is, literally, referring to his Son who is the child born in the passage to become the Davidic Leader of the end times and the embodiment of the Standard which is raised, not only for the people of Israel during the tribulation, but for all the Gentile Nations after the tribulation and into the Millennium.

Ez 37 ¶ Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim and the tribes of Israel his fellows and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah and make them one stick and they shall be one in mine hand.

This verse tells us that the end times Davidic Leader named David must be descended from both Judah and Ephraim and able to bear both ancestral staffs in his one person. This is true of myself and if this continues to be true at the time of my Theosis then it will be permanent.

Zec 9 ¶ As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water. Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee; When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, [with] thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man. And Y'hava their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.

The very end of the tribulation and I would repeat here that this passage originally was interpreted by Israel when they were suffering under the Grecian Empire to be antagonistic to Greece however, when we realize this is an end times passage it frees us to reinterpret it as, "and thy sons of Greece" and not "against" the Greeks for I do not believe that "against" is in the original texts. I believe that this is possibly connected to the Eastern Churches in some way or, at the least, my communion with them. If I am right and the word is not in the text then, grammatically, my interpretation is correct.

An additional note should be added here and that is that I compiled the descriptions above without the benefit of knowing that the Apocalypse of Ezra (II Esdras of the Apocrypha) was also Inspired Scripture and thus many of the verses above are more clearly understood from the Vision of the Eagle from the Sea which is rebuked by the Davidic Lion from the Woods at the start of their judgment which precedes the tribulation by about 20 years.
