Shalom, Shalom; peace in the name of Yeshua. This is Crystal Sharpe and welcome to the Ancient Scrolls program. Today is the first day of the week November 4th
We have a lot to talk about so let’s go ahead and pray.
We thank You for being God, for being the King of the Universe over heaven and earth. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world, and those who dwell therein. The joy of the Lord is my strength. I ask You to cleanse me from all unrighteousness so my prayers will not be hindered.
The Shema proclamation:
Shema, O America, the Lord our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.
I pray for the lost. The most difficult and trying times are upon us. The spirit of deception has been loosed upon the earth as it says 2 Thessalonians 2:9, the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
We are praying that You push back the darkness, the principalities and powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places. We continue to pray that legal murder of the unborn will be repealed. We pray against this holocaust of the innocent, of the defenseless. We pray against child molestation, human trafficking, against adultery, idolatry, fornication, afflicting the poor; we pray that You will remove the curse of suicide from among us and the addictions to drugs and alcohol. We pray for Your righteousness and justice to prevail over the darkness in this nation.
Release Your Spirit of repentance in this nation and apply Your healing balm of restoration among Your creation.
We pray for the protection of President Trump. We pray that he would be infused with the Holy Spirit of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, discernment, might, counsel and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord.
We pray for the protection of Netanyahu, and Israel. The nations conspire to destroy them and thinking if Israel is destroyed that You will not fulfill the rest of Your word concerning Israeland the return of Yeshua. We pray Your wisdom, knowledge and understanding would permeate Netanyahu, their politicians, Your chosen people.
We pray these things in the name of Yeshua, the name above all names, the name above every situation—Yeshua haMashiach; Jesus the Messiah.
A few days before Halloween a gunman went into the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and killed 11 Jews and wounded several others including police officers. It was a senseless act of hatred being carried out. It says a lot about the time we now find ourselves living in.
And before this 2 people were shot in either Tennessee or Kentucky at a Kroger store. It appears the days are growing more perilous.
II Timothy 3:1 has something to say about perilous times
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come (Perilous suggest difficult, threatening and dangerous.). For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
In this passage it sounds like all these adjectives and nouns are reserved for the last days only; but Yeshua, and Paul experienced perilous times in their days as well they had these same sort of people in their lives. It will be like this until the return of Yeshua.
As time progresses we will see more evil days. Yeshua’s disciples asked Him on the Mount of Olives what the harbingers would be to indicate His coming, His return. He said there would be wars, famines, disease, and earthquakes in many places. He then said they would be delivered up to tribulation and be martyred and they would be hated, and many would be offended and betray one another. His reasoned it would happen because of lawlessness (Torahlessness), the lack of biblical knowledge on how to love God and how to love each, the love of many would wax cold. Yeshua went on to explain the destruction of the disobedient.
What I would add to that is the destruction of this age would be similar to the destruction of Sodom and the world’s citizens in the days of Noah. The cause of their destruction was their violence and sexual sins.
What I am going to do is make some comparisons of the days of Noah to our time. I will use some passages from the Book of Enoch and the Epistle Jude to make some points. I understand that Jude does not qualify the Book of Enoch as an inspired work, however, Jude uses the Book of Enoch to serve as a reminder that sinful indulgences causes destruction.
Jude uses Sodom, Israel and the angels in Enoch’s time as a warning that God does not tolerate those who pervert His grace. He would rather that we submit ourselves to Him, repent, and be obedient to His Word; but when the last call for repentance is given, then time is up and He has to act upon His Word.
So let’s look at Jude
- But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord having saved the people out of the land of Egypt (he is talking about Israel being delivered from bondage in Egypt) afterward destroyed those who did not believe (this is in reference to the Israelites committing sexual sins with the Midianites and 24,000 were killed at Peor; the golden calf incident, they choked on quail, were bitten by fiery serpents, to name a few).
- And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for judgment of the great day (and the great day is the great white throne judgment in Revelation 20. We are going to cover this more).
- As Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality (debauchery, sexual addictions, vices) and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
- Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority (they reject excellent authority, disobedient) and speak evil of dignitaries (these dignitaries are those prophets, and excellent kings, and leaders).
What the angels did in verse 6 in Jude, according to the Book of Enoch and in the writings of Josephus was they left their habitations, or their estates in heaven to be intimate with women, and the women conceiving brought forth giants, and they bore to them three races first, the great giants. The giants brought forth the nephiliym and the nephiliym brought forth the Elioud (el-ee-ood). Enoch explains further these giants later oppressed mankind considerably. These giants possessed insatiable appetites and man soon found it impossible to feed them. The giants turned against men and began to devour them. Eventually they began to injure birds, beasts, reptiles, and fish, to eat one another’s flesh (cannibals) and to drink their blood. In our society, in books and TV series this focus on vampirism.
The book of Enoch, though it isn’t canon, gives us information that is absent in Genesis. In the earliest chapters of Genesis, chapter 4:26 it states that men began to call upon the name of the Lord and then suddenly it stops. Chapter 5 is the listing of Adam’s progeny. And in chapter 6 we see God saying He regretted creating man. There is abrupt change from man calling upon the name of the Lord — to God being grieved and saying He was going to have to destroy creation. There is this sudden turn.
In Jude, the common thread between the angels in Noah’s day, Sodom and Israel is sex, forbidden sex. The sexual revolution got them all destroyed. We find the angels in Genesis thought sex was worth going to everlasting chains. These are the angels the saints will judge.
In I Corinthians 6:2-3
Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels?
We also see angels that visit Sodom, and we also see the men of the city desiring to sodomize them. These sodomites become agitated because it isn’t happening fast enough for them. They threaten Lot and their intentions are to gang rape the angels anyway. The angels caused them to go blind and the only reason the men of the city left the angels alone was they had grown weary of searching for the door to Lot’s home. The passages bear witness that Sodom was then destroyed. The people of Sodom brought on their own sentence of destruction.
In our time we see these same elements again, the same patterns being repeated which are harbingers, the signs, the visuals that we are in the end days. It ended badly for them then and it will end badly for the disobedient at the end of this age. The nations will not repent of their violence, their sexual vices, their addictions. Judgments are determined for the end of this age as well because of these same elements.
I am going to read to you some passages in Enoch that you will find similar to what we see today. We are fortunate that we have been able to preserve these writings. Inspired or not, they give us a degree of knowledge concerning those times in which they lived. These writings agree with the Word of God, that disobedience brings judgment. It is for our best interests to be obedient to God and His word.
I am going to read first from Enoch 7-8
These angels took women, each choosing for himself women they wanted to cohabit with, teaching them sorcery, incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees.
Moreover Azazel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets, and ornaments, the use of paint for the beautifying of the eyes, stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered. 2. Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways. Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and divider of roots, 4. Armers the solution of sorcery. 5.Barkayal the observers of stars. (horoscopes) 9. And men, being destroyed, cried out, and their voice reached to heaven.
Now what it shares is the names of some of those fallen angels and how each one contributed to the moral decay of humans. As humans we can figure out how to sin all by ourselves, we do not need any help from any other entity in showing us how more depraved we can become.
The name of the first is Yakun (the rebel); it was he who seduced all the sons of the holy angels; and causing them to descend on earth,
- The name of the third is Gadrael: he discovered every stroke of death to the children of men. 7. He seduced Chuah (Chuah was Eve, the wife of Adam). Wallid Shoebat has something interesting to say about this angel Gadrael, in some recently published writings that the other name given to Gadrael was the name Allah. In the ancient times (pre-flood) and in the ancient middle east, people would have and go by different names. Finishing out this verse: He seduced Chuah (Eve); and discovered to the children of men the instruments of death: the coat of mail, the shield, and the sword for slaughter; every instrument of death to the children of men.
- The name of the forth is Penemue: he taught the children of men bitterness and sweetness (spices)11. He taught men to understand writing, and ink and paper 12. Therefore numerous have been those who have gone astray from every period of the world, even to this day. 13. For men were not born for this, thus with pen and ink to confirm their belief (to preserve their beliefs, knowledge); since they were not created, except that like the angels, they might remain righteous and pure. 15. Nor would death, which destroys everything, have effected them; 16. But by this their knowledge they perish, and by this also power consumes.
- The name of the fifth is Kasyade; he discovered to the children of men every wicked stroke of the ruachoth and of devils; 18. The stroke to the embryo in the womb (abortion), to diminish; the stroke to the ruach by the bite of the serpent, and the midday stroke of the offspring of the serpent, the name of which is Tabaet.
According to Enoch’s testimony mankind did not know war, sorcery, abortion, make-up before the fallen watchers imparted this information.
I am going to end the program. Rico Cortes will sing the Aaronic blessing in Hebrew from Numbers 6:24-26.
If it is God’s will I will be here next program. Remember to walk by faith and not by sight. Do two things this week: love and forgive. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness every day. Keep your spiritual garments clean from wrinkles, spots and blemishes. Love God, love your neighbor.
Matthew 24 he relates to them in verse 17: But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood the
Yeshua talks to his disciples on the Mt of Olives about another time that was perilous, a time that brought destruction to their generation.
The disciples had posed a question
Now Yeshua gives some examples of what day was like and He also gives another example concerning Sodom. We will take a look at those things he said and we will go over some passages in the book Enoch that are interesting and compare them to our day.
Other watchers stand accused of revealing to mortal kind the knowledge of more scientific arts, such as the knowledge of the clouds, or meteorology; the “signs of the earth”, presumably geodesy and geography; as well as astronomy and the ‘signs’ or passage of the celestial bodies, such as the sun and moon.
Shemyaza, is accredited with having taught men ‘enchantments, and root cuttings’, a reference to the magical arts shunned by most orthodox Jews, but accepted to some degree by the Dead Sea Communities.
One of their number, Penemue, taught ‘the bitter and the sweet’ perhaps a reference to the use of herbs and spices in foods, while instrcthing men on the use of ‘ink and paper’, implying that the Watchers introduced the earliest form of writing.
Far more disturbing is Kasdeja, who is said to have shown ‘the children of men all the wicked smitings of spirits and demons, and the smiting of the embryo in the womb, that it may pass away’. In other words, he taught women how to abort their babies.
Penemue taught the “bitter and the sweet”,
So I went back to look at the Book of Enoch and to see what that text said concerning those days.
The world no more has a moral compass. This nation is in a crisis. it has no fear of God, no fear of repercussions in this life or the next life. Satan is serious about stealing, killing and destroying.
And before this 2 people were shot in either Tennessee or Kentucky at a Kroger store. It is just madness. We are in perilous times.
I called a friend one day to check up on her. Eventually I asked her if she was hearing anything from the Lord and she said He told her
So, for several weeks I have been focusing on the Lord’s fall feasts, which are called the end of days feasts: Yom Teruah (day of the shout/or trumpets), Yom Kippur (Day of atonement) and Succot (Tabernacles). These feasts relate to the final harvesting of the fruit at the end of the year. These feasts serve as rehearsals or visuals of those intentions or actions that he has planned for the future of those that loathe Him. He isn’t hanging on the cross anymore to be reviled, spat upon, abused, scorned, and hated by His creation; that mission is finished.
The fall feasts reflect the other mission of His second return as that of a lion that will devour and annihilate His enemies. Righteousness and justice will prevail over the darkness, over the degenerate idolaters, over the devil and his reprobate minions, followers, and worshippers. There is only one King over creation, and that is God and that Kingship will not be shared with anyone else except Yeshua.
The anti-christ may prosper for a little while and he may be worshipped by the degenerate, the reprobate, the drug induced and deceived, but his end will be swift.
God has been saying to us that we are in the end of days, and He told us to tell everyone that will hear it because He already knew that many will not take it to heart. Just like all the population was destroyed in Noah’s time, well, except for 8 people,
If it is God’s wil,l I will be here next program. Remember to walk by faith and not by sight. Do two things this week: love and forgive. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness every day. Keep your spiritual garments clean from spots, wrinkles and blemishes. Love God, love your neighbor.
