Yahweh is a man of war.
Shemote (Exodus) 15:3
3 “Yahweh is a man of war; Yahweh is His name.”
Scripture is the story of how Yahweh made us to worship and serve Him. When an enemy beguiled us and led us astray, Yahweh was not content to lose us, so He sent His Son to win us back. If we defect from the enemy’s side to Yeshua’s, and faithfully help Him win His Father’s war, then He will ask the Father to forgive us for giving aid to the enemy, and we will be saved from Yahweh’s wrath.
Yahweh and His Son are also farmers, and they employ what might be called a seminal war strategy. This makes use of the fact that living beings reproduce after their own kinds.
B’reisheet (Genesis) 1:12
12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good.
Although we humans are unfaithful by nature, Yahweh wants a seed line that is willing to be faithful through persecution, or even unto the death.
Hitgalut (Revelation) 2:10
10 “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”
Yahweh tests seed through trial and tribulation. That is the only way He can know for sure if the seed is willing to die for Him. And, since the reproductive drive is so primal, Yahweh sought a man who was willing to give up even his son. That test would show Yahweh that He had found a bride worthy for His Son. Avraham passed that test.
B’reisheet (Genesis) 22:16-18
16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says Yahweh, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son —
17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.
18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
As we explain in Nazarene Israel, Avraham’s righteous seed would be scattered into every family, clan, and nation. That way, all people everywhere would be heir to the promise of salvation by grace through faith in Messiah Yeshua (regardless of their genetics), should they choose to accept and serve Him. However, it gets complicated, because Yahweh is working at many different levels, through many different groups, all at the same time. Yeshua spoke of this in the parable of the three measures of meal (ground seed) in which the leaven of sin operates.
Mattityahu (Matthew) 13:33
33 Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”
These three measures of meal are the children of Esau and Ishmael (Islam), the children of Judah (Judaism), and the children of Israel/Ephraim (Christianity). These three Avrahamic faiths are all leavened (puffed up) with Babylonian sin, meaning that one aspect of their worship is correct, but other aspects of their worship are incorrect. As we explain in Revelation and the End Times, these three Babylonian faiths are waging spiritual, economic, and military war campaigns against each other, and with the rest of the world—yet they are also secretly colluding to establish a Babylonian one world order.
As we explain in Nazarene Israel, while the majority of Babylonian Christianity goes off on a tangent, a remnant of Yeshua’s faithful are being called back to the original faith (Nazarene Israel). This is taking place slowly, over generations, but there is a remnant coming back to the original worship.
As we will see in the next chapter, the first step toward pleasing our Husband is to organize as He said.
