Two Mysterious Kings
Two Mysterious Kings
By: Jo Smith…..May 7, 2018.
I have been seeking for the revelation of the great and hidden mystery in Ezekiel 30-34, for many long years. I get a little here and some there, but still was missing the hidden treasure…till last night…Praise God, He has shown me the answer.
This is MEAT for the grown children of God. Babes on the breast or infants who never grew up will not see when good comes.
Ezekiel 30 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
30 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God;
Howl ye, Woe worth the day!
For the day is near,
even the day of the Lord is near,
a cloudy day;
it shall be the time of the heathen.
And the sword shall come upon Egypt,
and great pain shall be in Ethiopia,
when the slain shall fall in Egypt,
and they shall take away her multitude,
and her foundations shall be broken down.
Her foundations shall fall….who? What is the foundation that cannot stand? Jesus said it is the one built on the sand, or flesh, carnal mind, lies, error.
What is the ‘day of the Lord?’. It is described always as a destruction from God. So now, armed with this bit of information, let’s explore these mysterious chapters, which are impossible for the carnal or natural mind to ever see into.
The day of the Lord is a cloudy day; the time of the heathen. It is a destruction from the Almighty.
Someone built their house on the sand and the storms came and it FELL….and great was the fall of it. A mighty king pronounced it DESOLATE. And it FELL.
This is MEAT. Come and dine. The table is set with delicious food, nourishment for the soul.
V 7…And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate,
and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.
So, which ‘countries are DESOLATE, in the word of God? The Old Testament and all its many peoples.
The ONLY people to be spared from destruction, from that OT group was the CHILDREN who ran to the rocks and moutains of the NT ministers, and said, fall on us and save us from this destruction….Peter, James, Paul, etc.
But certain important people, leading up this great destruction, are spoken of in the Word of God, from Genesis, through Revelation….and called many names as certain ones showed the mysteries of these two trees.
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil…led into the OT animal sacrifices and sins that God hated so much. Their king is ADAM.
So, lets read about him in Ezekiel:
Because of quoting many scriptures, this will be a long message; but know something…..this is how I like them. I write these messages as God reveals them to me….but then I read them again and again, for it is glory to my soul..
So if you do not wish to feast on this delicious meal, just go play your games. I will read it and enjoy it as long as I live.
Thus saith the Lord God;
I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease
by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.
He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations,
shall be brought to destroy the land:
and they shall draw their swords against Egypt,
and fill the land with the slain.
And I will make the rivers dry,
and sell the land into the hand of the wicked:
and I will make the land waste,
and all that is therein,
by the hand of strangers:
I the Lord have spoken it.
Now, there is one of our ‘mysterious’ kings: Pharaoh, king of Egypt. (Of course another one is here, but I am not writing about Nebuchadrezzar tonight. )
I am writing about Pharaoh and the Assyrian.
Thus saith the Lord God;
I will also destroy the idols,
and I will cause their images to cease out of Noph;
and there shall be no more a prince of the land of Egypt:
and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.
And I will make Pathros desolate,
and will set fire in Zoan,
and will execute judgments in No.
And I will pour my fury upon Sin,
the strength of Egypt;
and I will cut off the multitude of No.
And I will set fire in Egypt:
Sin shall have great pain,
and No shall be rent asunder,
and Noph shall have distresses daily.
The young men of Aven and of Pi-beseth shall fall by the sword:
and these cities shall go into captivity.
At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened,
when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt:
and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her:
as for her, a cloud shall cover her,
and her daughters shall go into captivity.
Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt:
and they shall know that I am the Lord.
All of the above are ‘cities’ of old Egypt; but they are showing something entirely DIFFERENT, here. The natural is merely a type of the Spiritual. So lets go back and look at a few things here. He said, I will make these DESOLATE. I will set FIRE in Egypt. They shall have great pain. NO SHALL BE rent asunder OR INTO. Where did that take place? think, people, think.
The vail in the temple was RENT INTO when Jesus died on that cross or was in great pain. THOSE OT peoples went into CAPTIVITY…..Captivity…to who? To the NT grace message, of course….to Peter…..to Paul..glory. Told you this was MEAT.
Read Isaiah one..it tells of this same thing….her pomp and strength CEASED…Jesus pronounced them DESOLATE. Oh Jerusalem, thou that KILLS the prophets….your house is left unto you DESOLATE. There you have it….the theme of God, through the entire Scripture.
Look at verse 18…the day shall be DARKENED when I break the yokes of Egypt. When did the DAY BE DARKENED? When Jesus died on that cross thus breaking every YOKE. Praise God for this deep meat.
All of the OT LIFE went into captivity to the NT or they died, lost.
(Too important to this revelation, not to use all of this chapter; so here it is)
20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 21 Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a roller to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword. 22 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong, and that which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand. 23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries. 24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh’s arms, and he shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man. 25 But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of Egypt. 26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them among the countries; and they shall know that I am the Lord.
Now as crazy as it may sound, and I know it does….(only God could reveal this to anyone)…this Pharaoh is JESUS. [And another thing many do not know,,one verse calls Egypt, MY PEOPLE..said God).
Now who is the king of Babylon, that breaks the arms of this ‘pharaoh’? Well who did it? Who killed Jesus? Rome,,,the king of Rome along with the Jews.
Why would God say, I am against Pharaoh, if it is Jesus? Because Jesus was here in human flesh, made in the likeness of sinful man, made under the LAW. He had to get rid of this….the sins of the entire world was put upon this man, in whom is no BEAUTY… (this is important to understand this message….when we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him…Isa 53)
Why did God have them break both his arms?….Because at the time of his death, he was under the law, AND in SIN. All of this had to GO, for the Christ, the only begotten son of God, to be born.
So, the gentiles, or the king of Babylon, came into power and the OT folks were scatered all over the world, is what the rest of this chapter is saying.
Ezekiel 31 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
31 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his multitude;
Whom art thou like in thy greatness?
Here God asks this ‘pharaoh’, who are you like in your greatness? Next, he answers it and up comes the other ‘mysterious king’.
3..Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches,
and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature;
and his top was among the thick boughs.
The waters made him great,
the deep set him up on high
with her rivers running round about his plants,
and sent out her little rivers unto all the trees of the field.
Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field,
and his boughs were multiplied,
and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters,
when he shot forth.
All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs,
and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young,
and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.
Thus was he fair in his greatness,
in the length of his branches:
for his root was by great waters.
The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him:
the fir trees were not like his boughs,
and the chesnut trees were not like his branches;
nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.
I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches:
so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him.
Now, we are talking about another ‘king’, the Assyrian. So who is this? It is Adam. The proof is in the words. Lebanon, in scripture, means the Garden of Eden. This king was a mighty one in Eden. He was exalted above all the trees of Eden….these trees are not natural trees, as we know trees…it means people or the heavenly multitude.
So, this particular one is called a CEDAR TREE….shew, look out, you cedar tree decorators. Here is where it comes from.
Jesus said, I am the VINE and you are the branches….must spell this out so you can see it. This Cedar had a high statue, thick boughs, long branches…he was envied by all the others for his great BEAUTY. This beauty is glorification.
The fowls of HEAVEN made their nests in his boughs…. the beasts of the field, (earthly folks)…dwelt under his shadow….so Adam had everyone looking up to him and worshiping him. Now notice verse 8, the cedars in the garden of God could not HIDE HIM.
What? Why is this statement here? Who tried to HIDE from God, among the OTHER TREES OF THE GARDEN? None other than Adam. But see, here is a secret….those trees could not hide Adam from God. No other ‘tree’ in this beautiful garden was like this one in his BEAUTY.
Remember, when we see Jesus there was no BEAUTY for us to desire him. He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Total opposites.
Now, for solid proof that this is speaking of Adam: Verse 11… 11 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness.
No other was driven out of Eden, for his wickedness, EXCEPT ADAM.
Now for some glory and a great mystery:
12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him.
13 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:
14 to the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit.
v 12.. who are these ’STRANGERS’ who cut him off and left him? It is the NT Christians, who reject Adam or flesh and cling to Christ Jesus/spirit.
So, this great Assyrian’s branches fell. But upon his RUIN all the fowls remain and the beasts are upon his branches. This is the church folks and preachers who have a form of Godliness, but deny the power thereof. They cling to Adam, the flesh.. This is exactly why they uphold old Adam and put the mother of all Living down. They know not God’s truth.
V14….to the end that none of the trees exalt themselves….Jesus said, with you it shall not be so..you are all one, brethren. You do not seek to be lifted up above another or rule over anyone.
…we are all delivered to death…it is appointed once to man to die. So we do not get lifted up in pride. The children of men end up in the pit. Only the children of God will escape.
15 Thus saith the Lord God; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.
16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth.
17 They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen.
18 To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord God.
Both of these mysterious kings are in these verses…. in the day that Jesus went down to the grave, there was a great mourning. The nations shook at the sound of his fall; his soul went into hell and he preached to those souls in prison there and comforted them. God caused the deep floods to be stayed; with Jesus it was the flood of the false OT way….
With Adam it was the natural flood in Noah’s time. When that Adam fell, every nation fell with him. They shook at the sound of that fall, when God destroyed that entire world with the flood. They all went down to the pit. Notice verse 16…all that ‘drink water’ shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth…This is those who could ‘hear’ the voice of Jesus…the words of God…He went and comforted them and brought them out of that pit.
Jesus lay down in death, with the uncircumcised..he made his grave with the theives. This is a perfect picture of the life of both Adam and Jesus. They are those two trees in the garden.
Now something more about this Pharaoh.
Ezekiel 32 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
32 And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him,
Thou art like a young lion of the nations,
and thou art as a whale in the seas:
and thou camest forth with thy rivers,
and troubledst the waters with thy feet,
and fouledst their rivers.
[I will speak the revelation under each of these verses….Jesus returns as a lion….he came forth with his ‘RIVERS’ or teaching/people, and troubled the waters of the OT law folks; he fouled their ‘rivers’ or OT way of life.]
Thus saith the Lord God;
I will therefore spread out my net over thee with a company of many people;
and they shall bring thee up in my net.
[This is the ministry of the apostolic church, as they went out ‘fishing’ for men. They brought in a great multitude of ‘fish’ in this gospel NET.]
Then will I leave thee upon the land,
I will cast thee forth upon the open field,
and will cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee,
and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.
[Here God tells Jesus, I will leave you upon the land and cast you upon the open field so that the fowls of heaven can now EAT YOUR FLESH and the beasts of the earth can come and eat of your message and receive salvation].
And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains,
and fill the valleys with thy height.
[God told Jesus, I will lay your flesh upon the mountains….meaning his messages being carried to this world by the apostles and they filled the valleys with the height of Jesus Christ; they took it to the whole world].
I will also water with thy blood
the land wherein thou swimmest, even to the mountains;
and the rivers shall be full of thee.
[Wow, this one is great: God gave the BLOOD of Jesus, (his message), to the whole land even the mountains and the rivers, (or nation of people) shall be full of Jesus….glory] .
And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven,
and make the stars thereof dark;
I will cover the sun with a cloud,
and the moon shall not give her light.
[When I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven and the stars will be dark. This is the death of Jesus also the time of the flood to Adam. I will cover the sun…the sun went down over the prophets…Micah 3: 6, night shall be unto you it shall be DARK UNTO YOU….the SUN shall go down over the prophets and the day shall be DARK over them..
This is showing that when Jesus died, God cut the OT off…it was DARK TO THEM…THE SUN WAS COVERED…their day was now DARK or desolate. such solid proof!]
All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee,
and set darkness upon thy land,
saith the Lord God.
Verse 8 is also showing that darkness came upon that OT system when Jesus died; God cut them totally off. This is why the sun was darkened and the moon gives no light and the stars are dark…it is showing that God cut them totally off; it happened the day Jesus fell. It was his crucifixion. All of God’s word is about this; these two kings and all that they did and cause.
I will also vex the hearts of many people,
when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations,
into the countries which thou hast not known.
[The entire world was vexed over this matter of the crucifixion of Jesus. God brought the knowledge of this to the entire world, via the apostles.
Yea, I will make many people amazed at thee,
and their kings shall be horribly afraid for thee,
when I shall brandish my sword before them;
and they shall tremble at every moment,
every man for his own life, in the day of thy fall.
[When God struck Jesus with the sword and left him to die, the whole world was brought into a horrible fear; they now saw that their own life was in danger unless the get to Jesus, in the day he fell.]
For thus saith the Lord God;
The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon thee.
By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to fall,
the terrible of the nations, all of them:
and they shall spoil the pomp of Egypt,
and all the multitude thereof shall be destroyed.
[Here is speaks of the gentiles going forth and killing that early Church of true Christians.]
I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the great waters;
neither shall the foot of man trouble them any more,
nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them.
[The powerful truth this early Church took to the world stopped the beasts from troubling the Word to the people any longer; the truth is there for anyone who wishes to find it.]
Then will I make their waters deep,
and cause their rivers to run like oil,
saith the Lord God.
[This is great; after God stopped that OT messed up message, He then made the NT message deep and their rivers ran like oil,,,the Holy Ghost].
When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate,
and the country shall be destitute of that whereof it was full,
when I shall smite all them that dwell therein,
then shall they know that I am the Lord.
[When Jesus was killed then the whole world came to know the true Lord. It is there for anyone who wishes to come into truth. But even if they don’t, they still know it is there. ]
This is the lamentation wherewith they shall lament her:
the daughters of the nations shall lament her:
they shall lament for her,
even for Egypt, and for all her multitude,
saith the Lord God.
[This lamenting for the Egypt, is speaking of the fall of the first man Adam or fleshly doings. ]
The rest of this chapter speaks of the different nations of that OT world, who all died and went into the hell pit. Jesus also went there when he died and he preached to them and comforted them with the truth. So they all now had a chance of salvation if they could accept this truth. So this Pharaoh was comforted when he sees the great multitude that He has saved through his own death.
What a mighty revelation. Thank you my God for feeding me this great SUPPER.
