Fall of the Old Testament Part 3

Part 3

~ Fall of the OT

Lamentations 2:3-He hath cut off in his fierce anger all the horn of Israel: {the horn shows the ruling power; so in cutting this off, he did away with any vestige of the nation of Israel = the Old Covenant.

He hath drawn back his right hand from before the enemy, and he burned against Jacob like a flaming fire, which devoureth round about. {The ’fire’ of God shows his destruction of a place (such as when he destroyed Sodom). See, that it devoured the family of Jacob = old Israel = OT Covenant.

V4-He hath bent his bow like an enemy: he stood with his right hand (Jesus)- as an adversary, and slew all that were pleasant to the eye in the tabernacle of the daughter of Zion: he poured out his fury like fire.

This shows God becoming the enemy of Israel. Jesus is God’s right hand, so Jesus was an adversary to Israel- their old way – the OT. He destroyed everything they had. See his fury is always called the ‘fire’ of God.

There is no use saying this is not true; unless you are ready to outright call the Word of God a lie. For I am going verse by verse, I am not making this up, nor am I adding my own interpretation. I am saying exactly what the Word says. God destroyed ancient Israel = Jacob = OT in his anger and fury.

V5-The Lord was as an enemy: he hath swallowed up Israel, he hath swallowed up all her palaces: he hath destroyed his strong holds, and hath increased in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation.Again this says God was their enemy. It shows he did away with all her palaces = this is shown in other Scriptures to represent the places of assembly. This is also prophecy for what God will do to this evil church. They follow exactly the same pattern as Israel; for indeed they are old Israel in disguise. What God did to them, he will do to the church. It is actually stated in this book. The palaces are these fancy, expensive church buildings. Someday God will destroy them as he destroyed those of old Israel.

See that he destroyed their strong holds. This was all their law, their priests, their prophets, their kings, any thing that was their power; he left them nothing.V6-He hath violently taken away his tabernacle, as if it were of a garden: [showing, this parallels with what went on in the Garden of Eden; same pattern; same events; one word applies to the past, present, and future]. He hath destroyed his places of the assembly: [see that he makes it clear here that this is what he meant? It is not left up to man to figure it out]. The LORD hath caused the solemn feasts and Sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of his anger the KING AND THE PRIEST.

Now, people, read this. This is the Lord’s Word; not mine. He did away with their solemn FEASTS [so, why do you church people believe in going BACK to their feasts which God did away with from them; much less you!]. Note that he said he caused their ‘Sabbaths’ to be forgotten~~ why? Because he had come to despise this whole thing.

See that it said he had despised their KING AND THEIR PRIEST? How can you be blind to this?

V7-The Lord hath cast off his altar, he hath abhorred [hated] his sanctuary, he hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a noise in the house of the LORD, as in the day of a solemn feast.

We will see this ~ the ‘stranger; the enemy’ a lot throughout this Book; this is the New Testament Apostles and Christians.

See, that this shows that God did away with the altar of old Jerusalem; he hated their sanctuary; he gave their ‘wall’ into the hand of the New Testament = the stranger; or their enemy. So, now the ‘wall’ of Jerusalem, the City of God, is the New Testament.

V8-The LORD hath purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Zion: he hath stretched out a line, he hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: therefore he made the rampart and the WALL to lament; they languished together.

This shows God completely destroying the entire nation of Israel = their whole ‘make-up’. [What they are made up of].V9- [Take special note of this verse]~ Her GATES are sunk into the GROUND;

Gates are the ENTRANCE into a place = so her gates were the fact of their being the one God used to get people into His Kingdom or courts. But now, with her GATES sunk into the GROUND, this means it is no longer a way to God; it is demolished. Remember his telling her to come DOWN and set on the ground? That is what this refers to. He did away with HER = OT, being the way to God. People this includes EVERYTHING connected with that OT Covenant; the nation, the law, the prophets, the priests, the feasts, the Sabbaths, everything! Everything, every bit of that is clearly covered in this Book and expressly stated to have been destroyed.

No one except one totally denouncing the Word of God as invalid could deny this after this study.

Back to v9-He hath destroyed and broken her bars: this is her protection; she was left wide open to the ‘enemies’ = the Apostles.

Her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: [meaning; now the Israel of God is among or made up of the Gentiles].

Watch this: the law is NO MORE. People, how much clearer would it need be spoken for you to finally see this truth? The LAW is NO MORE. PERIOD.

This plainly shows that after God finished this work against Jerusalem, the LAW would never be again. This is HIS word; not mine. If you want to fight, if you do not like it, take it up with Him.

Her prophets also find no vision from the LORD. This proves that God did away with the OT Prophets and put them into DARKNESS.

Another Scripture proving this: Micah 3:1-[showing that this is speaking to the same group of people = the heads of Jacob, the princes of Israel] And I said, hear I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel, Is it not for you to know judgment?

V4-Then shall THEY cry unto the LORD, but he will NOT hear them. He will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

Now, I tell you, God shows me that this is true now of the fallen away church; you do ill; as you deny the NT Covenant and go backward, to the old Covenant. You deny all the commandments in the NT. So you are ‘angering’ God as those people did.Now v6-Therefore NIGHT shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; [see, we just read in Lam. That the prophets would not have a vision from God?] So this is speaking the same thing. And it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; [this shows he put them away from him = their darkness]

And the SUN shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.

Now, this clearly proves that God quit dealing with those OT Prophets. Anyone, who tells you there are those types of prophet, well, let me give you the Word of God as to how we should do them!

Zech. 13:1-In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

[Now this speaks of the crucifixion; for this is when the only fountain for cleansing was ever or will ever be opened].

V2-And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the PROPHETS and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.

V3-and it shall come to pass, that when any shall YET PROPHESY, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD; and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.

V5-he shall say, I am no prophet, and I am a husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.

This shows that the NT came in; they are ‘husbandmen’ = keepers of ‘cattle’ – for we are likened to cattle and sheep. The OT begat them; so they must be thrust though [in other words, killed] for there is no life now in the OT.Now to prove that this time is connected solidly with the time of Jesus’ death;

V6-And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

See this is the crucifixion.

V7-Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I WILL TURN MINE HAND UPON THE LITTLE ONES. [This means turning to the NT Christians; after the crucifixion].

If you cannot see this, you need to ask God to give you eyes to see and the Holy Ghost to teach you.

V8-And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Look, he said in ALL the land; this means the whole nation of that Old Covenant. Can you not see this?If he cut that law off and let it die, then how could we live by it now? It just cannot be. We do not have OT Prophets anymore. Anyone who says we do is lying and should be thrust through. This is HIS Word.

V9-and I will bring the third part through the fire, = Baptism of fire– and will refine them as sliver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, [this is those who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. This is NT Christians]- and I will HEAR THEM:

Remember, we read that the OT people would call on him and he would NOT HEAR THEM; well here it says those who call on his name (the NT Saints) he would hear them. This solidly proves he left them [that old covenant] and chose another people [the NT Christian = Grace].

I love Jesus. And I only read the King James Scriptures.
