According to Genesis 11, Adonai dispersed them around the earth. From the clues given in Deuteronomy 32:8, they were separated according to the ‘sons of God.’ Although the Hebrew Masoretic text says ‘sons of Israel’ or bene Yisra’el, there was no Israel at this time. The Septuagint and the Qumran Dead Sea Scroll’s text says ‘sons of God’ or bene elohim. This implies that Adonai divided the nations based on the number of his sons gathered in his divine council.
That Little ‘Alef and Tav’
When people say that Yeshua (Jesus) is found throughout the Old Testament, they probably don’t visibly see him in the written Word, that little Alef and Tav –– את (et). While writing out several verses in Hebrew the other day, three contained the Alef and the Tav, the ‘sign’ of Yeshua. The Torah and Prophets revealing what Yeshua meant when when he said, “I AM the Alef and the Tav, the beginning and end” in Revelation 22:13.
Patient Endurance of the Saints
As the world crashes around the people of Adonai and chaos ensues with calling evil good and good evil, what is it we are to do? In my recent prayer time, I asked the Lord that very question. His response, “patient endurance” and then He reminded me of Revelation 14:12.
Do We Choose?
The ‘realm of choice’ is different from the ‘realm of no choice.’ In the heavenly realm, angels are not given the choice to obey Adonai or not. They were created to be obedient servants of El Elyon –– the Most High God. However, when they entered the ‘realm of choice,’ they made choices. One group of angels left their ‘realm’ and made the choice to procreate with human women (Genesis 6:1-2). Their choice caused some angels to be bound in chains forever; the half-breeds had to be destroyed by the Hand of Elohim’s armies (Jude 6). The guardian cherub of Gan Eden entered the ‘realm of choice,’ took the form of a serpent. He chose to ‘fall’ from the heavenly realm, sin, and lose his guardian position. He deceived Chavah and she made a choice between life and death.
