“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.”

Summary: Included in this episode are a few remarks concerning the current situation in the world and  the Red Dragon, China. Also, discussed are the Rebecca, Esau and Jacob.

Shalom, shalom; peace, peace in the name of Yeshua. This is Crystal Sharpe and welcome to the Ancient Scrolls program. 

I do have a website called Ancientscrollsonline.com. I do post prophetic dream, visions, and words; ancientscrollsonline.com.

For a few Sundays I have been teaching on wells and their spiritual connection with the church, the bride of Yeshua. I am going to continue to pursue this today and maybe next Sunday as well. I hope it brings some understanding to the patterns we find in the Word. These are pictures and shadows of God’s kingdom. 

For several years, my husband and I have been saying to others we are at the end of the age. Last December (2019) started COVID 19 (began with China), riots this year, the burning of cities, churches, and Bibles, the murder of children and their parents, the election fraud; out in Nevada (Perry Stone) China that is buying up loads of real estate. Why do you think the nations like China, Russia and the Muslims are purchasing structures and buildings, companies—it is because they plan to move–here. You have got to give them credit, that is a peaceful way to conquer a nation, just buy portions of it. 

Two or three weeks ago it was huge news about the Global Reset; some prefer calling it the Great Reset. There were different headlines to describe the same thing. The wealthiest of the nations are using the pandemic COVID-19 as an opportunity for the leftist or communists to overthrow capitalism, to seize properties, your wealth and to distribute your assets to the more wealthy; which are the oligarchs. 

Some of my Christian friends listen Charlie Ward, he is a wealthy disinformationist, and a proponent of this Great Reset. The highlights are that the global government will eliminate all your debts (mortgages, loans, credit card), they will give you digital currency, there is an AI (artificial intelligence, which is the image of the beast) that will monitor everything about you, your health your finances –not that they don’t have information already, it will be now on a global level. Your assets will be seized, you will have to take the COVID-19 and COVID-21 vaccinations. One can say we do not have COVID-21. Well, that is because the globalists have not introduced it to the public yet. It is supposed to be released in February 2021. However, headlines are saying COVID-19 is mutating already. 

New coronavirus strain spreading in UK has key mutations, scientists say | Reuters

The United Kingdom scientists has named the new variant “VUI – 202012/01” includes a mutation in the viral genome region encoding the spike protein . . . 

The Mainstream Media is preparing us for the next one. The good news is they tell us all the bad things they are going to do to us. 

I have been waiting for someone else to say it, but so far, I have not heard anyone mention it, so I will. From what I can see the Global Reset could perhaps be the beast system. Once it is implemented, it will be mandatory to receive the mark of the beast. The players of the Great Reset or Global Reset are those who are the wealthiest in the nations. The allies of China are Russia, Iran, there are other Muslim countries, Canada, Germany, quite possibly the UK. Earlier this year Pope Francis fanned the anger of some of his Cardinals and Bishops with his a whoring with China knowing the Chinese government is a persecutor of Catholics, Christians and Islamic followers.

I made a list of the similarities between China and the beast mentioned in Revelation 13. China, right now, is an excellent example of the beast we find in the Word; because right now we have a global system but no leader of it yet. The things we thought we knew about Revelation and Daniel may not be the way we have interpreted them over the years. When we consider everything that is going on in this nation and the world, we are in prophecy. China is an example of what is coming.

Let’s take a look at the similarities.

The first place to mention a red dragon is in Revelation 12:3, Another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten diadems. China’s symbol is the dragon. We would say the dragon is evil, but they say it is good and brings them good fortune. The color red is attached to communism: Russia was called the Red Army, Moscow I think has the Red Square, China also has a red flag, their dragon for the summer is red and is called the dragon of summer and South. I remember the actors in the older movies would say “red commies.” 

What Do the Colors of the Chinese Dragons Mean? (synonym.com)

While all Chinese people are said to be descendants of the dragon, the emperor has long been thought of as a human incarnation of the dragon. I suppose that may not be spectacular information since most emperors, kings, and pharaohs in the ancient past considered themselves to be sons of one deity or another. 

Chinese Dragon: Why They’re So Important in Chinese Culture | Reader’s Digest (rd.com)

China’s culture adores the dragon, Revelation 13:4, So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast.  

China loathes God, Revelation 13:6, Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.

Revelation 13:7, It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue and nation. China hates God and they hate Christians. They make war with the Christians there. They imprison them, starve them, torture them, rape them, kill them; the war against God and His people—it is real there. 

Revelation 12:17, And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. 

As I was doing research, I noticed the dragons in the Chinese culture do not resemble the dragons of the ancient European culture. The Mesopotamian and Asian dragons are more serpentine than the dragons of the more western cultures of Europe.  

Revelation 20:1-2

Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the devil and satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 

Shema   Deuteronomy 6

Shema, O Israel, the LORD 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.

Psalm 24

The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof; the world and those who dwell therein.

Numbers 10:35, Psalm 68:1

Arise, O Lord, and let Your enemies be scattered; and let those who hate You flee before you.

Father YHVH,

You are the King of the universe, king over heaven and earth. Your mercy endures throughout all generations. You are great and we extol Your name in the earth. We thank You for Your Word. We bless You. In Yeshua’s name. 

Okay, so I will get started on the teaching of the bride Yeshua being found at the wells. The brides of some of the patriarchs were found at wells. I think I had mentioned Moses meeting the seven daughters of Jethro at a well and Moses having married the one daughter Zipporah. Abraham’s senior servant found a bride, Rebekah, for Isaac at a well; and Jacob married Rachel whom he met at the well. 

I am going to focus a little more on Rebekah.

Rebekah was a woman of great faithfulness to YHVH. Her name means “bind” or “firmly tied.” The rabbis say that Rebekah was a prophetess. I do know she exhibited a spirit of discernment for she was able to perceive or distinguish which of her sons would be the greater nation to follow the ways of YHVH.  She worked diligently to set forth the plans of God, not her own, or Isaac’s, but God’s purposes for Jacob. 

When she conceived and the babies grew within her, they warred inside her womb. She enquired of the LORD and she received a prophetic word during her pregnancy.

Genesis 25:23

Two nations are in your womb, two peoples shall be separated from your body; two regimes (some translations have two nations, or two governments,) from your insides shall be separated; the might (upper hand will go from one government to the other) shall pass from one regime to the other (some translations will have: one people shall be stronger than the other), and the older shall serve the younger.

Artscroll, Genesis; The Living Torah by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplen; NKJV

Rebekah kept these words locked in her heart: The older shall serve the younger. All Rebekah had to remember was this, which ever one would be birthed last would eventually end up being first. The firstborn, Esau, which in Jewish thought represents Edom, and in Jewish thought Edom spread and became Rome; and this being interpreted would mean Rome will eventually serve Jacob/Israel. This will be in the Messianic Age. 

Since we are already here in the passage in Genesis 25,  I am going to go on and review the birth of the twins. 

Genesis 25:24-

This is from the Targum Onkelos, pg 164-165

When her days to give birth were at hand, there were twins in her womb. 25. The first one emerged red, like a hairy mantle all over; so they named him Esau. 26. Then his brother came out, holding on to the heel of Esau; so he named him Jacob. 

The twins in the womb were already at war with each other before their birth; and the struggle that began in the womb for primacy continued throughout their lives, and this will be resolved, as I said, in the Messianic Age. This conflict still exists today. 

Now the sages say that Jacob should have emerged first; his holding to Esau’s heel was meant to restrain him from emerging and securing the birthright that rightly belonged to him. The holding portended that the descendants of Jacob would ultimately rule over the descendants of Esau.

Usually in the western mindset, Jacob is depicted as the deceiver; in the Middle Eastern understanding it is Esau that was the deceiver. Esau was never a victim. 

I am looking at Genesis 25:27 that speaks of Esau and Jacob

The lads grew up and Esau became one who knows hunting but a more accurate reading would be: The lads grew up and Esau was one who knows trapping. Artscroll, pg 1062

The sages understood Esau to be deceptive with his words and they position him with Nimrod in Genesis 10:9 where it speaks of him: He was a mighty hunter before the LORD. It should be read as: He was a mighty hunter in place of the LORD. Nimrod was in opposition to God. And they say Nimrod enticed and incited men to rebel against God and it was on a global scale. 

Nimrod was the forerunner of those who hypocritically draped themselves in robes of piety as a means of deceiving the masses. In his more youthful days Nimrod built altars upon which he sacrificed unto God the animals he trapped; this was a hypocritical pretext of piety to attract the masses.

Esau’s personality was like that of Nimrod. He was a trapper, a deceiver who in the end became deceived. And he had deceived his father, but not his mother. 

I am going to read Genesis 25:28  Artscroll, pg 1064

And Isaac loved Esau for game (or literally trapping) was in his mouth. 

Isaac loved Esau because there was entrapment in his mouth—he used speech to deceive his father. It was his father not mother towards whom he directed his deception since he wanted to be the recipient of Isaac’s blessing. 

As the story continues, we see the abandonment of Esau’s birthright for a bowl of red beans. The birthright was his spiritual blessing. Genesis 25:32-34

And Esau said: Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me? Then Jacob said: Swear to me as of this day. So Esau swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.

And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright. 

The firstborn was to function as a priest for the family. He conducted the sacrifices and offerings upon the altar to YHVH. Esau forfeited his position and could no more be involved in the holy service. 

What is at stake in all of this is the Abrahamic Covenant and who would receive it. 

I am going to end the program here.

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 spots, wrinkles and blemishes. Love God and love your neighbor.

Rico Cortes will sing the Aaronic priestly blessing

 His father thought of Esau as the one who would inherit the spiritual and material blessings. No way would the lineage of Yeshua come through Esau, His lineage would come through Jacob whose descendants would fill the land of Canaan.

Later, in the text we understand that Jacob takes back what was his from the beginning. How do we know that? Because the prophetic word that Rebekah remembered was that Esau would serve the younger. If Jacob would not receive what was rightfully his, the birthright, the spiritual blessing; and the material blessing from his father, then Esau the idolater would inherit these things. This would have grave consequences for the rest of the world and the descendants of Jacob, and have far reaching effects in the church. It is through Israel and the grafted-in that the gates of hell would not prevail against it. 

Romans 11

And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree.

Genesis 27:27

Surely, the smell of my son is like the smell of the field which the LORD has blessed. Therefore may God give you of the dew of heaven, of the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and wine. Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you (the same word delivered to Rebekah). Be master over your brethren, and let your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be those who bless you.

Because of Rebekah, the church became also an inheritor of the spiritual and material blessings Jacob received. What was taken from Jacob in the beginning was restored to him in the end. 

The spiritual blessing meant nothing to Esau. He traded his birthright for a bowl of red lentils.
