A Word from the Lord--January 14th, 2021 @ 5:52AM--The Unearthing and the Great Red Dragon

 

Praise be to the Lord God the Great I AM. Who is an ever-present help in times of trouble. The Alpha and Omega, All-mighty and All-powerful Holy and sovereign. All Glory and Honor is due His name….


And the Spirit of the Lord says this day, the clashes in the heavenlies that are happening as the armies of the Lord of Host advances against the enemy and is beginning to cause a retreat, you see this My children manifesting in the natural, on earth as fear, chaos, disjointedness, and confusion on the part of those who serve the interests and the insatiable lusts for power of the Kingdom of darkness. Right now My children you need to march in faith as Joshua did so at Jericho. For there is always secrets hidden within the walls that they never wanted found out. Nor do these corrupted children of perdition want anyone finding out what lay under the area called Washington DC.


And the Spirit of the Lord says this day, I am exhuming what they thought was dead, what they thought they buried and hid in the cracks and canals of the underground and underworld beneath that Area, I the Lord of Hosts am commanding to come forth the most heinous of dealings, the most heinous of operations, blueprints, the most heinous of crimes, pure blasphemy and perversion of their father the devil. I the Lord am commanding this day these things be unearthed. Turn up the soil says the Lord of Hosts, open the caskets of what they so foolishly thought they buried so well. I the Lord of Hosts say this day what shall be exhumed shall change the course of this nation and shall cause to cry out for a complete purge of their government. For I the Lord God say this day your keys, and codes, and GPS points of burial that you so hid I the Lord God decree this day and so order for My Holy angels, My warring angels to go forth and remove the principalities and powers that are so guarding these key pieces and take them to put them into the hands of those I have chosen to lead the fight for Truth, Godliness, Justice, and recompense says the Lord.


And says the Spirit of Lord this day, towers once thought dead and gone I the Lord am resurrecting the true and rightful tale, story, and plan for the world to see. Attacks that happened long ago, including in Oklahoma says the Lord, what is in the earth shall cry out, and those who have stayed hidden in secret with key pieces to the puzzle, who have the information to make entire pictures very clear. I the Lord God am calling them out from the shadows, I am calling them out from deep within the government, I am calling them by name to come forth and inject the very explosive evidence into the fight. There will be even more panic not only on the part of the donkeys who took payoffs BUT the elephants who took payoffs to look the other way from what they saw and conversations they witnessed, for their mini shrines and empires shall fall as it is made even more clear these politicians do not serve the people, they do not serve Me the Lord your God, they serve the interests of wicked, insatiable principalities who have been lording over Washington DC.


You must understand My children, My son Donald, upset the balance of powers, and a blow in the realm of the Spirit was delivered unto them when he took office. He is a builder by nature, however, builders are diggers, they have to survey the property and dig around on it to ensure it is solid ground. Well, Donald and a select few went digging and what they found was frightening, sickening, darkness that brings you to the point of being physically ill. And they panicked, these snakes, sorcerers, and thieves panicked because NO ONE was supposed to find out who was not puppeted by them to keep them in check. There was not one string they could pull to reign him back. And so they went on a quest they made a pact to not only destroy him and his family but to destroy the entire country as punishment for the way they so voted their conscience and their voice. And so says the Lord of Hosts they met with the great Red Dragon, and worshipped the dragon, and committed harlotry with this blasphemous being, and plotted every evil that only comes from the pits of hell that were so-called up by Lucifer himself, and contracts were signed, pacts were made. And so in their desperation, they attempted to unleash hell against this country, in attempts to get them to turn on the president and put their trust in the very people who went on a mission from hell to destroy them, whose allegiance is to principalities and powers, not to the Lord God the great I AM, and not to the people says the Lord.


And says the spirit of the Lord this day, now is the hour where I the Lord God shall gut open the great Red Dragon and pull forth out of its belly all it has consumed and its contents that is highly sensitive material. There were codes exchanged with the great Red Dragon, codes for missiles as well. And just as they have so wickedly opened the door for infiltration in this country purposely giving jobs and favor to those who were indeed operatives, just when they think they have a hold I the Lord God Yahweh say this day I shall raise My right hand in judgment against them and shall send in a fierce warring army to literally rip them out of their bunkers, offices, positions, I the Lord God will strike a fatal blow to the Red Dragon and that sickness shall carry to Persia for their hand shall be cut off for dipping their interests into such a wicked scheme and the god they serve will be deaf to their cries as shaking, quaking, and explosions so go forth in that country, they will be sorry they ever tried to harm America and Israel, and so their operatives that have been waiting for their que deep within the government in America and other areas of the world, those operatives shall be pulled forth out of their offices, and hiding places. And the media of deceptions shall quake as these things come forth and the people shout for their dismantling says the Lord of Hosts this day.


And says the Spirit of the Lord this day these events will wake the country up from a long slumber, a stupor, chains that had been unknowingly placed upon them by the filth in the capital. The hostilities shall grow against those in Washington DC. as the people completely reject their officials and their false way of government, for they have been operating in a government in the shadows that runs opposite what the laws of the land state. The persecuting spirit has gone forth to attempt to persecute truth and its soldiers. As their colosseums, and monuments, and contracts that they so built are falling apart at the seams, are crumbling, in a complete panic, they have gone forth against those who are standing for truth, law, and order. The persecutions shall turn on them since they so chose to serve their father the devil! 


And says the Spirit of the Lord this day, the time is here for everything to be turned on its head and a battle is brewing, wars, and rumors of wars, However, I the Lord of Hosts have sent in My army of warring angels to assist those fighting for truth and to cut down those who have made contracts with the devil says the Lord of Hosts this day.


A surprise with the Presidency is imminent for the pit is literally one step away from those who have become drunk on the cup of haughtiness, pride, perversions, and lusts of every power they could whore their spirits out for says the Lord of Hosts.


And says the Lord of Hosts this day, as MY people who are called By My name will humble themselves before Me and pray and SEEK MY FACE and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven forgive their sin and heal their land says the Lord. Now is the time that the cries of the people to their Creator will cause massive change and intervention for I the Lord God desire to deliver you. Do NOT look to a man to deliver you, Do NOT set man up as an idol for man is a tool in My hands. Nothing is too difficult for Me and no circumstance is impossible to overcome when you have the Lord your God fighting for you.


And so I shall fight for you OH America, I shall fight for this covenant nation and shall break the eagle of its bondage and the blood covenants made on behalf of the sons and daughters of perdition and sin, and Balaam, I the Lord shall break the chain of command and constrictions of that covenant and shall evict Lucifer from what he so illegally took and inhabited in this country.


Watch Buckingham palace and England shall be complete upheaval as events in America take place for England's filth must be faced their people must face the filth and turn back to Me says the Lord.


Passover will be highlighted this year BY MAJOR events occurring surrounding it for the pharaohs can serve Ra and Baal and the prince of Persia however I the Lord God laugh at them and the wicked for they are powerless in My presence and so I shall demonstrate MY power in such a way that men will drop to their knees to surrender for some hearts will fail at the evils that will now be exposed.


There are those I have marked, I have set apart for such a time who I shall bring to the forefront of this fight from all different areas and expertise, and the giants and captains of industry who so want to utilize it as a weapon against the people and against truth, those captains of industry shall fall.


2 banks shall take such a major hit and blow for their willful arrogance against the people, and the captains of social media so shall be smeared and on the run for Lucifer cannot help them once I have ruled against them for he has strings on them they foolishly allowed to grow bigger and stronger. And now the people shall turn against them and cry out even more for the time has come for the people to have a voice, a voice that will mute those in governments and industry attempting to manipulate and snare the people back into submission. However, the tables are surly turning and there will be evidence found underneath says the Lord.


The next year says the Lord is going to be a crucial fight to regain the country out of the hands of the wicked. I the Lord have set My face against them and so shall I release My wrath upon them for attempting to open up the gates of hell against America. You have a sword, it is the Word, utilize it right now and speak it, root yourselves in it as I the Lord God send help oh America for she needs her freedom once again. Thus sayeth the Lord of Hosts in the name of Jesus Christ, amen and amen.

A Word from the Lord--January 4th, 2021 @ 5:45AM

 

Heard April.


Praise be to the Lord God who is Creator of ALL that is seen and unseen. Who is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the Ending. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. And to His Kingdom there is no end! Let His name be Glorified!!


And the Spirit of the Lord says this day…The next 4 years shall be crucial building and recovery years for there will be events that will occur where a recovery will be much needed as markets become very uncertain and golden calves topple says the Lord. For this will be the dismantling of America’s golden calves. What I the Lord God gave America they took the gold, they took the silver, they took the resources and erected golden calves out of such that opened the door more and more for the most wicked of leadership to arise says the Lord and oppress America once beautiful says the Lord.


However, I the Lord God the Righteous Judge was merciful as America as a wayward sheep began to stray into the wilderness. And I the Lord pursued you O America and brought you a leader in My mercy, a shepherd, for the sake of Israel, for the sake of My precious remnant, for the sake of the gospel and the harvest. I the Lord of Hosts raised up a leader, a leader called since birth that the enemy attempted to pull and drag down into the ditches and pitfalls of this world to attempt to destroy the call. However, says the Lord even though the enemy attempted to tempt, tarnish, and stain I the Lord refined, I the Lord allowed this past year especially a wilderness experience to refine the man, the trumpet I called from his mother’s womb, My son Donald, imperfect yes, as all of humanity is however called, anointed for a great task, for leadership in a time of Crises, to help steer America through the troubling waters it had entered in the year 5780, 2020. I the Lord God see the wind and the waves of wickedness that is tossing America about however, I the Lord have utilized it for such a time to wake up those who were asleep and pose a very serious question to the people of America as it is at a crossroads...What kind of nation do you desire this to be? A nation that moves back towards God and His law, or a nation that drifts further out into the sea of darkness and despair? A nation of truth, of demanding truth, of transparency and accountability, or a nation of lawlessness and complete disregard for the truth, the laws of the land, and the Word of God? Yes, America must face its future for what America decides will be the building blocks will set the precedent and the course for 2024 says the Lord of Hosts.


Over the next 4 years, there will be a crash in various countries of their precious markets in whom those in the deep have gorged themselves upon such and crashes will occur as countries are dealt with for their mistreatment of their people, the persecution of their people, and defiance against All Mighty God. There shall be crashes in leadership, shaking in the world as America attempts to rehabilitate from the infections that spread across the land, infiltrated every area of life and the goal, to put America on life Support and then pull the plug and destroy what America is called to be. However I the Lord God the Lord of Hosts have ruled from My throne and stopped the plans of the wicked just short of their mark, as they have no value for life and desired to take much life through this to scare the rest of the people who live in America into submission, giving every freedom over to them as a virus and a hostile takeover of leadership was their goal. What the enemy promised them for such nefarious and egregious acts he never intended to fully follow through on as that serpent of old never keeps his word as MY Creation is just a means to His end says the Lord. Their trick plays have been found out and their arsenal of maneuvers is very depleted and weakened as what they so attempted shall make headlines says the Lord. This is a time of great humiliation as desperation turns to contemplation about giving over the master plans to save oneself from death says the Lord of Hosts. The next 4 years shall be crucial and delicate years for America as the axe will appear and be taken to every rotted decayed stump completely cutting off intertwined, underground, between parties root systems where they secretly fed each other and took care of each other selling out the people for bills and laws and plots and schemes to gorge themselves on a life of sin, indulgence, and high society living says the Lord of Hosts this day. However, I the Lord the righteous Judge am taking an axe to that root system and destroying it where truly there shall be the most massive split and gut in Washington DC that has ever occurred says the Lord of Hosts. This was the day the forefather’s feared as they were inspired by Me to write such law that contained clauses to attempt to shield America and prevent her from completely sinking in the hands of leadership on a suicide mission.


America is weighing in the balance and the next 4 years shall determine the future of America as I the Lord God of Hosts have intervened in My mercy to clean Americas wounds. There shall be major operations in many areas of America into its most deepest parts to stop the spread says the Lord. The bureaucrats, the medical communities, the giants of silicon valley, those who desire to continue their own lives but pluck up the lives of others for the sake of population control they shall take major hits to their credibility, to their fortunes, to their companies, platforms, for these are their golden calves and I the Lord God have decreed and sent the judgment forth that these golden calves shall and will be torn down says the lord of Hosts. 


And says the Spirit of the Lord this day…The faces of those in Hollywood shall turn pale as they watch their empire, their roles, their squeaky clean image crash down and laid bare before the people as there are those in Hollywood who will be discovered as Chinese operatives says the Lord, the operatives from other countries embedded, rooted and acclimated to life in America in order to put tentacles down for their wicked home empires I the Lord am ripping those tentacles off, cutting them off and exposing who the true operatives are as more shall come forth out of the belly of the beast in Washington DC that were operatives for the great Red Dragon who is now set to fall, set to topple. The leaning tower of Pisa shall lean too far and fall. The one who holds the Eiffel tower chaos shall break out across that country says the Lord


And says the Spirit of the Lord this day liberty shall break out across the land of America. The public cries to their Creator shall become deafening to those who serve the Kingdom of darkness and make them quake as the army of God has awoken and is marching across the land. Those who attempted to control and keep them in their place of oblivion and ignorance shall now quake at the fierceness of the people says the Lord of Hosts.


And says the Spirit of the Lord this day the giants of social media and search engines shall quake as they are sliced up and cut up their wicked empires, as they will lose their gatekeepers who will go down with the wicked ship that was set to lead America to destruction. And says the Spirit of the Lord this day “CALL THEM TO ACCOUNT OPEN THEIR BOOK OF RECORDS FOR THE TIME HAS COME FOR THEIR RECKONING”  the amazon giant shall be struck, the head shall be struck says the Spirit for the unholy chain, the unholy blockchain shall now suffer a break as the word of the Lord has gone forth this day! The Lord has announced His intentions and they shall be carried out says the Spirit!


And says the Spirit of the Lord this day I the Lord am releasing the healing balm to be placed upon the sickness of America, and My son Donald shall be humbled even more and begin to see things through a different set of bifocals as I the Lord bring him into focus and center him on Me for without me he cannot win this fight. I the Lord have set the trap for the wicked and called those I have marked to execute such, brave men and women sons and daughters filled with the boldness of the Holy Spirit, Brazen in the face of evil that makes the wicked quake and shake as their elaborate plans disintegrate before them as I the Lord have ruled against the enemy and his wicked plans and they are left powerless, pathetic, and penniless Says the Lord of Hosts this day.

And says the Spirit of the Lord this day, the people are setting their minds and coming together of one accord, agreement, what shall be withheld from them for they are rising up for a righteous cause and the name of My son Jesus shall be echoed across this land from Washington DC. The leaders of the other states are hereby put on notice, your time is short your indulgences will stop and your vault of darkness and corruption is ordered this day to open and so it shall be revealed and you exit your leadership roles in shame for you abused what was given to you says the Lord. What profit a man to gain the whole world but lose His soul? Says the Lord of Hosts this day.

And says the Spirit of the Lord this day in the midst of America’s volatility a country an enemy a foe will attempt to strike however their attack shall be stopped way short of its intended mark as America’s vulnerability as it fights for its liberty has tempted a country who is desperate right now to not topple, this country will attempt to strike however says the Lord there shall be a backdraft a reverse explosion upon them and an even more fatal wound inflicted upon their leadership says the Lord of Hosts.


Do not let the enemy weary and upset you now My children for he is attempting intense distraction to get you off course, rebuke the devourer says the Lord of Hosts in Jesus name and send his operatives back into outer darkness where they belong says the Lord of Hosts. Many of you, this nation are at the point of breakthrough and the enemy has mounted his last attempted resistance, and so his plans shall fall and be struck down and My children shall be raised up to such positions because they stood boldly in the Lord in the face of evil, persecution, and attacks. It is here My children it is time, you shall see signs of early spring as new growth occurs and watch My power break forth and explode in this land and biblical events so occur before the eyes of the people. Stand firm in your faith and get ready to shout to your God in the streets and the squares and your cities and towns for I the Lord God of Hosts shall have My way and will bring the Victory…Thus sayeth the Lord of Hosts the King of Kings in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.

READ THE BIBLE WITH AMANDA GRACE (Notes on Absalom & David) on December 26th, 2020

  • Absalom was the 3RD Son of David with Maacah 2 Samuel 13-18 Maacah Daughter of king Talmi of Geshur Saw her went he went forth to war and takes her Capture as an: eshet yefat to' ar

a non-Jewish woman taken captive during wartime whose Israeli captor desires to marry her-(Deut. 21: l0-14) The Rabbis Did not look favorably on this kind of woman. She had to Shave her hair, Pare her nails Trim) & lament for her parents home for a month only then could She be taken as a wife).

The Rabbis see this as 1 transgression leads to another...In a way, a Domino effect of events and choices from one lustful act bringing this type of woman into the home introduces dissension into that home. The Shaved head is not desire able to the man so he loves 1 wife and hates the other. 

• • •

The one whom he hates the eshet yefat to’ar) this leads to his child being a wayward and defiant Son

Macaah(the eshet yefat to’ar) bore Absalom who acted as a wayward and defiant Son Deut 21: 18-21 Defines such a child as...

  1. One who does not head his parents B. throws off all restraint C- AND has a riotous life gorging himself on meat & wine.

Deyteronomy 21:18-21: 18 “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and who, when they have chastened him, will not heed them, 19 then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city, to the gate of his city. 20 And they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ 21 Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall put away the evil from among you, and all Israel shall hear and fear.

Absalom = extreme actions = Stubborn and rebellious Son Mishnah

  • tried to overthrow his Father 2:18

  • Slept w/ his wills stubborn e. rebellious

  • caused the Deaths of many 

This all starts in 2 Samuel chapter 13 where Absalom murders Amnon because Amnon basically raped their sister Tamar, this volcano that has been active in David’s home from all David has overlooked is about to erupt and it begins with brother murdering brother

2 Samuel 13:37-39 37 But Absalom fled and went to Talmai the son of Ammihud, king of Geshur. And David mourned for his son every day. 38 So Absalom fled and went to Geshur, and was there three years. 39 And [e]King David [f]longed to go to Absalom. For he had been comforted concerning Amnon, because he was dead.

 

Absalom flees back to where the seed of dissension was sown, where the crime happened on foreign soil when David took His mother Macash as a prisoner of war in order to marry her. He flees to his grandfather Talmi the King of Geshur. Which is the area I believe of Syria today. They were polytheists and worshipped pagan gods

So Absalom steeps in this polytheist pagan worship culture for 3 years, this is his mothers native land, she was a polytheist

Haddad (Adad), Sin, Ishtar (whom they called Astarte), Shamash, Tammuz, and Nergal,

haddad-storm and rain god

sin-god of the moon

ishtar-goddes love and war

shamash-son of sin, god of the sun

tammuz-god of fertility

nergal-He was identified with Irra, the god of scorched earth and war


So.. what Absalom was being steeped in for 3 years by King Talmai, who lost his daughter to David, love and war, fertility, scorched earth and war

So Absalom comes under the influence of the enemy through these pagan worship and perhaps is pumped by His grandfather to take the Kingdom from David and they could rule peacefully and perhaps merge Kingdoms...


At the end of 2 Samuel 13 it says that David longed to go to Absalom, however, David could not go because he basically stole King Talmai’s daughter and he would have to go through King Talmai to get to Absalom


Now Joab in Samuel 14 devises this elaborate scheme using a woman posing as a widow with a “similar” situation as Absalom and Amnon and then basically tells the King to bring Absalom home because he is the heir in the people's minds. Joab is behind this, Joab is opening a pandora's box that it appears the Lord wanted to remain closed for Absalom would of most likely stayed in Geshur had he not been sent for and brought back by King David’s advisors WITHOUT seeking the Lord on this matter. In such a matter the prophet Nathan or others should have been summoned and the Lord Inquired BUT instead David listens to a manipulative woman who was put up to this by one of his supposedly trusted Advisors


So Absalom is brought back and dwells 2 full years in Jerusalem without seeing the King’s face. He is stewing for this 2 years after three years of indoctrination in a pagan kingdom. So Absalom is plotting for 2 years in Israel right under the King’s nose. And the King trusts him because it's his son!


2 Samuel 14:29-31 29 Therefore Absalom sent for Joab, to send him to the king, but he would not come to him. And when he sent again the second time, he would not come. 30 So he said to his servants, “See, Joab’s field is near mine, and he has barley there; go and set it on fire.” And Absalom’s servants set the field on fire.

31 Then Joab arose and came to Absalom’s house, and said to him, “Why have your servants set my field on fire?”

So the very man who pushes the King to bring Absalom back without inquiring of the Lord, is the very man now whose field gets burnt to the ground or shall we say “scorched” false god Nergal... 

2 Samuel 15: 1-4 After this it happened that Absalom provided himself with chariots and horses, and fifty men to run before him. Now Absalom would rise early and stand beside the way to the gate. So it was, whenever anyone who had a lawsuit[a] came to the king for a decision, that Absalom would call to him and say, “What city are you from?” And he would say, “Your servant is from such and such a tribe of Israel.” Then Absalom would say to him, “Look, your [b]case is good and right; but there is no [c]deputy of the king to hear you.” Moreover Absalom would say, “Oh, that I were made judge in the land, and everyone who has any suit or cause would come to me; then I would give him justice.” 5

Now Absalom would rise early and stand beside the gate. That is where the elders were, the same elders who could judge him as being a rebellious child and sentence him. So not only is Absalom trying to corruptly ensure he can do what he wants and never be judged according to Jewish law, he is trying to establish himself before the people that he actually cares about their problems unlike King David, and is attempting to establish himself as the Legal authority to the people…

And what does he promise the people “oh if I were only made a judge so I can give you true Justice” however he is so corrupted by the pagan lineage of his mother he has NO intention of giving Justice and NO intention of helping His Father the King continue to be King.

This is a coup in the making, and an internal coup by one who had access to the palace and the King who has had access to all the King’s officials, military, etc...

2 Samuel 15:6  In this manner Absalom acted toward all Israel who came to the king for judgment. So Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel.

He is committing a treasonous act here.

2 Samuel 15: 7-11

Now it came to pass after [d]forty years that Absalom said to the king, “Please, let me go to Hebron and pay the vow which I made to the LordFor your servant took a vow while I dwelt at Geshur in Syria, saying, ‘If the Lord indeed brings me back to Jerusalem, then I will serve the Lord.’ ”

And the king said to him, “Go in peace.” So he arose and went to Hebron.

10 Then Absalom sent spies throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, “As soon as you hear the sound of the trumpet, then you shall say, ‘Absalom reigns in Hebron!’ ” 11 And with Absalom went two hundred men invited from Jerusalem, and they went along innocently and did not know anything. 12 Then Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, David’s counselor, from his city—from Giloh—while he offered sacrifices. And the conspiracy grew strong, for the people with Absalom continually increased in number.

After 40 years. 40 is a big number in the Bible, it represents the end of one era and the beginning of another. In Noah’s case, the unrighteous being judged and the righteous being spared. Jesus Yeshua being tried tempted in the wilderness 40 days before he could 40 it’s a go forth in Ministry.

So if we look at 40 it’s a line that gets drawn in the sand a plumbline gets dropped and it comes time for the Lord to judge the wicked by it...

Absalom lies and uses the Lord’s name to do it, why, because he is steeped in the pagan lineage of his mother. He says he must fulfill a vow to the Lord which is a bald-faced lie, he dupes the King so he can set himself up to try and dethrone David.

And what does Absalom do next, he sends spies through ALL the tribes, so throughout all the branches of the Kingdom we could say(just like ALL the branches of govt in this case)

And then he falsely uses the shofar which is so serious to the Lord that sound, and wants them blown to proclaim him King throughout the land. So he was never given the throne and did not earn the throne, yet he attempts to steal the highest position of authority humanly speaking in the land! He invites men who all have no clue what he is about to do, switch their loyalties without them knowing it, sound familiar? 

2 Samuel 5:12 12 Then Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, David’s counselor, from his city—from Giloh—while he offered sacrifices. And the conspiracy grew strong, for the people with Absalom continually increased in number.

And the conspiracy grew because more fools got on Absalom's runaway train!

2 Samuel 15-14-18 14 So David said to all his servants who were with him at Jerusalem, “Arise, and let us flee, or we shall not escape from Absalom. Make haste to depart, lest he overtake us suddenly and bring disaster upon us, and strike the city with the edge of the sword.”

15 And the king’s servants said to the king, “We are your servants, ready to do whatever my lord the king commands.” 16 Then the king went out with all his household after him. But the king left ten women, concubines, to keep the house. 17 And the king went out with all the people after him, and stopped at the outskirts. 18 Then all his servants passed [f]before him; and all the Cherethites, all the Pelethites, and all the Gittites, six hundred men who had followed him from Gath, passed before the king.

So instead of standing and fighting for the Kingdom, DAVID is a warrior, he eats fighting for breakfast, he takes his men and runs….Instead of standing up and fighting, he begins to shy away

2 Samuel 15:23 23 And all the country wept with a loud voice, and all the people crossed over. The king himself also crossed over the Brook Kidron, and all the people crossed over toward the way of the wilderness.

To the north of Jerusalem begins the torrent-bed of the Kidron. It sweeps past the Temple Mount, past what was afterward Calvary and Gethsemane. It leaves the Mount of Olives and Bethany to the left, Bethlehem far to the right. It plunges down among the bare terraces, precipices, and crags of the wilderness of Judea-the wilderness of the scapegoat. 

John 18:1 “When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron (Kidron), there was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. (John 18:1)

Amazingly David is walking the same path because of the betrayal of Absalom that Jesus would walk to Gethsemane where there he would be betrayed by Judas, coincidence? I think not!

This is a very serious walk a walk of betrayal when one wants to kill you for their thirty pieces of silver, to say they removed you from your God-given position. David in some ways was experiencing what Jesus would experience down the Road!

2 Samuel 15:25-28

Then the king said to Zadok, “Carry the ark of God back into the city. If I find favor in the eyes of the Lord, He will bring me back and show me both it and His dwelling place. 26 But if He says thus: ‘I have no delight in you,’ here I am, let Him do to me as seems good to Him.” 27 The king also said to Zadok the priest, “Are you not a seer?[g] Return to the city in peace, and your two sons with you, Ahimaaz your son, and Jonathan the son of Abiathar. 28 See, I will wait in the plains of the wilderness until word comes from you to inform me.”

David finds out then that one of his trusted counselors Ahithophel has turned on him and is in Absalom's camp! David’s prayer: That the Lord would turn Ahithophel's counsel before Absalom into foolishness. NOW Ahithopel is Judas in this case and we will see why in a moment...

Ahithophel was a counselor of King David and a man greatly renowned for his wisdom of the law we shall say. During Absalom's revolt, he deserted David (Psalm 41:9; 55:12–14) and supported Absalom (2 Samuel 15:12). David sent his friend Hushai back to Absalom, in order to counteract the counsel of Ahitophel (2 Samuel 15:31–37).

Now Absalom enters the HUB Jerusalem that is where he is going to try and solidify this coup

Interestingly enough a man named Shimei curses David and throws stones at him the whole way up thinking David is the problem here and not the fact that Absalom is stealing the Kingdom. Does this sound familiar, all the Trump haters, the deep state, that is Shimei in a nutshell...He is pointing out all of David’s flaws and overlooking the fact that Absalom has executed a coup, committed treason against the King and the Kingdom, and committed fornication with David’s concubines in broad daylight none the less...

Now King David makes a very strategic move here, he sends his Friend and Advisor to Absalom on a covert mission to basically counter the Advice of this advisor gone rogue named Ahithophel. Hushai deceptively hails Absalom to gain his trust because basically Absalom is full of himself and cannot help himself when someone hails him as king! Even though Absalom questions Hushai, Hushai cleverly says he has served his father David, and now that’s done and he is here to now serve Absalom as well which is a big fat lie!!

Ahithophel is the one who tells Absalom at the end of 2 Samuel 16 to commit fornication with David’s concubines. He also wants to convince Absalom to let him choose 12000 men and pursue David that night. So this advisor is deep-state, waiting for his opportunity to turn on David for a higher position of power. You see Ahithophel thought he could have more control and influence with Absalom than with David and this is what partly is driving him to commit this horrible act of betrayal.

Hushai in chapter 17 quickly counters Ahithophel and ays “ no-no that’s not a good idea because your father and his men are mighty strategic men of war and they are probably already in a pit somewhere just waiting for you, and the people will see you have led your men to slaughter!”

So Hushai says “let's gather a huge crowd of people and find him, David, somewhere else and fall on him and his men as dew falls upon the ground. And to gather stones out of the river so there really isn’t one left” if David withdraws to a city...So Absalom likes Hushai’s advice better.

2 Samuel 17:14 So Absalom and all the men of Israel said, “The advice of Hushai the Archite is better than the advice of Ahithophel.” For the Lord had purposed to defeat the good advice of Ahithophel, to the intent that the Lord might bring disaster on Absalom.

So the Lord compels Absalom to take the bad advice of Hushai and view it as good advice!

2 Samuel 17”15-16 15 Then Hushai said to Zadok and Abiathar the priests, “Thus and so Ahithophel advised Absalom and the elders of Israel, and thus and so I have advised. 16 Now therefore, send quickly and tell David, saying, ‘Do not spend this night in the plains of the wilderness, but speedily cross over, lest the king and all the people who are with him be swallowed up.’ ” 

Here Hushai is helping to set the ambush he is warning David, covertly through Zadok the priest where to go to keep him safe while he continues to poorly advise Absalom

2 Samuel 17:21-22 21 Now it came to pass, after they (Ahimaaz and Jonathan) had departed, that they came up out of the well and went and told King David, and said to David, “Arise and cross over the water quickly. For thus has Ahithophel advised against you.” 22 So David and all the people who were with him arose and crossed over the Jordan. By morning light not one of them was left who had not gone over the Jordan.

Here is what is so prophetically interesting about the Jordan River.

Crossing the Jordan River was a key event in Israel’s history. Just as crossing the Red Sea changed Israel’s standing from slavery to freedom, passing through the Jordan into the Promised Land, transformed Israel from a wandering horde into an established nation. To the people, the river seemed like an insurmountable obstacle. But to God, it represented a decisive turning point.

So David crossing over the Jordan was a key turning point because at this point everything was turning against Absalom.

Now here is why Ahithophel is Judas. 

2 Samuel 17:23

23 Now when Ahithophel saw that his advice was not followed, he saddled a donkey, and arose and went home to his house, to his city. Then he [b]put his household in order, and hanged himself, and died; and he was buried in his father’s tomb.

This is what Judas did after he betrayed Jesus after Jesus crossed the brook Kidron to get to Gethsemane.

So Absalom crosses over the Jordan in pursuit of David, David, and his men are in the wilderness, and THE Lord sends people with food and provisions to feed them and care for them and strengthen them at the end of 2 Samuel 17 the PEOPLE come to the rescue of David and his men when they are weary from Running from Absalom. This is going back to the beginning where David was the anointed leader and Saul pursued him and tried to hunt him down like a dog, just as Absalom was attempting.

2 Samuel 18, at the beginning of this chapter David pulls a Gideon. He divides the men into 3 groups each under the leadership of a general or advisor, AND the people rise up with them!

2 Samuel 18:2-4 And the king said to the people, “I also will surely go out with you myself.”

But the people answered, “You shall not go out! For if we flee away, they will not care about us; nor if half of us die, will they care about us. But you are worth ten thousand of us now. For you are now more help to us in the city.”

Then the king said to them, “Whatever seems best to you I will do.” So the king stood beside the gate, and all the people went out by hundreds and by thousands. So the people are coming to the aid of the King against Absalom and his army. Does this sound familiar to you because that is what is happening right now! The People are coming to the aid of the President and His trusted Advisors

Now David tells these leaders to deal gently with Absalom for his sake however they know what Jewish law says about such a son...

2 Samuel 18:6-10 

 So the people went out into the field of battle against Israel. And the battle was in the woods of Ephraim. The people of Israel were overthrown there before the servants of David, and a great slaughter of twenty thousand took place there that day. For the battle there was scattered over the face of the whole countryside, and the woods devoured more people that day than the sword devoured.

Then Absalom met the servants of David. Absalom rode on a mule. The mule went under the thick boughs of a great terebinth tree, and his head caught in the terebinth; so he was left hanging between heaven and earth. And the mule which was under him went on. 10 Now a certain man saw it and told Joab, and said, “I just saw Absalom hanging in a terebinth tree!”

Now the other servants are afraid to touch Absalom but Joab not only is loyal to David he knows what Jewish law requires from Deuteronomy for such a rebellious son and that is death and Joab and 10 young men struck down Absalom, and just like that the rebellion and the coup come to a screeching crashing halt.

Interestingly enough Absalom violated 10 of David’s concubines in broad daylight and it was 10 people led by Joab in broad daylight that struck down Absalom. And because of Brave men and women, generals and leaders the Kingdom was saved, David was upheld, the Lord upheld him even in the midst of his bad choices and imperfections, the Lord upheld his cause and caused the rebellion the coup to be struck down and the leader(s) destroyed, thus saving the Kingdom from wicked Absalom and those who jumped ship to side with him, they all went down and David and his men were upheld. David remained King and returned to the Kingdom, to the Throne Victorious. The battle is the Lords and we shall see the same happen in this case, Absalom will be struck down, he and his men for attempting to overthrow the United States of America for the hand of the Lord thy God is against them, and their plans will be as confused as was Absalom's.
