Anti-Typical Jacob’s Return Home (Part 1 of 3)

June 26, 2021

Note: This study is for advanced present truth believers. It may not be clear if advanced studies have not been taken. Nevertheless you are ,as always, welcomed to read and enjoy this study.

The Lord has given us clear end time enlightened Truth as we read —

“That which happened to Jacob is sure to happen to us, and how comforting to know all this ahead of time. Now, if never before we should see that where there is a type there is also an antitype, and that where there is no type, there is no Truth.” (1 TG, no. 47, p.15)

The subject of when this anti-typical returning home, and trouble begins, is one of the biggest issues today among present truth believers. There are bascially two camps in the timeline of when it is to happen.

Camp one says — It is after the Ezek. 9 church judgment.

Camp two says — It is before the Ezek. 9 church judgment.

Obviously only one timeline will be correct, either before or after. As ALL present truth believers believe in the prophesised Ezek. 9 church judgment to the SDA church, this issue therefore has become a hot bed issue, causing division among us. Either we are teaching a right end time event timeline or a false one. We should strive to be on the side of Truth of course.

But how can we do a SERIOUS study on this? Well we think it will be a study of type and anti-type.

The very first point we need to clear is that Jacob is a type of the 144,000.

“Jacob, at the advice of his parents, left home and went to Padan-Aram, and on his way, the very first night, God appeared unto him in a dream, “And behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: And behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.” Gen. 28:12. The ladder represents Christ; God, the Father stood above it; Jacob at the foot of it. (Gen. 28:13). This dream gave Jacob great courage, and he made a vow to God.

Jacob was now to become the father of Israel (12 tribes) through whom many nations shall be blessed; a type of Israel by the promise, the 12 tribes, the 144,000.” (SRod, vol. 1, p.61)

Our Biblical type of Jacob’s return and trouble on the way to his homeland, is described in the following account —

“The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of My people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.

And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.” (Jer. 30: 1-7)

Ok, this is our study verses. We will look to INSPIRATION for interpretations and not to our own ideas. The first comment that the message makes on these verses is —

“Note that both Judah and Israel together have the promise of returning to their homeland. As this has never yet been realized, the prophecy is yet to be fulfilled.” (1 TG, no. 47, p.13-14)

Thus we see that the first promise is that of God’s people “returning to their homeland.” A promise that gives us proof in anti-type that the fulfillment of JTT (Jacob’s Time of Trouble) occurs WHILE returning to the homeland. Note it doesn’t say while Jacob was still in his adopted homeland but “returning”, on his physical way.

The next comment —

“The cause of the fear here forecast is fundamentally needless and unnecessary, declares the Lord.” (1 TG, no.47, p. 14)

Ah, a powerful clue, this fear of seemingly “real trouble” is needless and unnecessary. Jacob was worried for something he should not have been and so the anti-type experience will be the same -bascially needless. Also note no physical harm or laying of hands upon Jacob during this trouble.

Let us now examine the physical travel in Jacob’s returning home. First the map of Haran, which was in the area known as Padanaram, which is the old Biblical city where Jacob lived and served Laban for 20 years, to the city known as Mahanaim (near Peniel) where Jacob struggled all night with the Angel. The journey from Haran to Mahanaim is over 300 miles.

The message states the fear is apparently frightening.

“The people that have come to this antitypical time of trouble are returning to the homeland, are comforted. Apparently it is bad enough to frighten all, but God’s encouraging counsel is, “Fear not.” (1 TG, no. 47, p.14)

Again we see that the point is underlined “returning to the homeland”. This fear is going to seem real but God will comfort, amen.

“Plainly, the burden of this chapter is concerning the antitypical returning to the homeland. Though terrible the trouble may seem, yet the outcome of it is to be the same as in the type. Right now we may not appreciate this study as we ought to, but the time is soon coming in which we will dig as fast and as hard for it as we would to get out from under an avalanche. Those who have but little faith in the Word of God though, the study will not do them much good. Now is the time to start cultivating the faith we need to have then.” (1 TG, no. 47, p.14)

Now we see the whole reason for this Word of God is the promise that God’s people will be partaking in an anti-typical physical travel to the kingdom land– a returning! The reason why we are emphasising this “returning to the homeland” is because it plays a key role in our understanding of type and anti-type as we’ll see in part 2.

“Jacob, our type, well knew that God had directed his return from Padanaram to the homeland, yet he trembled when he heard that Esau, with four hundred men were on the way to meet him. Besides, he was led to wrestle with the angel all night long. He prevailed only because he would not let the Angel go until He blest him. The final result was that on the morrow, Esau, rather than destroying the whole company, very kindly greeted Jacob with a kiss, and cordially invited him to return home! So when it all worked itself out, Jacob plainly saw that there was no need at all to have ever feared. How encouraging that “all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” 1 Cor. 10:11. ( 1 TG, no.47, p. 15)

Summary —

Type Truths —

1) Jacob was well on his way home physically when he experienced his time of trouble.

2) The trouble came by what he heard which frightened him

3) His trouble was mental anquish, not any threats or physical laying of hands upon him.

4) His victory was only because he wholeheartedly pleaded with God.

5) The trouble was found out to be unnecessary. His object of fear became welcoming.

In part 2 we will exmaine the position of camp two. Does their ideas align with the type — anti type truth?

Identification Markers

June 12, 2021

As is seen in the photo, we see a blown up portion of a one hundred dollar bill showing an identification water mark. This tells us the true identify of the bill. As we know there are many identification markers, papers, labels , cards, etc in our world. However is there identifications of a spiritual nature to identify certain important truths in the Word of God? Let us look at a couple important truths in the Bible that we can know by proper identification.

1 — How can we know who was the true Messiah that was prophesied to come?

As we well know the Jews had expected a great and delivering king to come. Conquering the Romans and freeing them from the yoke of the heathen. Yet they were not true students of the Word, rather prideful self interpreters of the Holy Scripture. Thus they failed to known the Messiah when He came.

So what are some of those identification markers that pointed unmistakenly to the true Messiah?

He would come from Bethlehem —

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been
from of old, from everlasting.” (Micah 5:2)

He would spend time in Egypt —

“When Israel was a Child, then I loved him, and called My Son out of Egypt.” (Hosea 11:1)

He would be rejected —

“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” (Isaiah 53:3)

He would be betrayed for money —

“And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.” (Zech. 11:12-13)

He would be crucified with criminals —

“Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong; because He hath poured out his soul unto death: and He was numbered with the transgressors; and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53:12)

He would come riding on a donkey —

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, thy King cometh unto thee! He is just and having salvation, lowly, and riding upon an ass and upon a colt, the foal of an ass.” (Zech. 9:9)

There are about 40 more Bible references that show the identification of the King. So when one closely examines them they can be assured it can be none other than our King –Jesus Christ.

2 — How can we know who was/is the King of the North spoken of in the book of Daniel?

As we know the 10th, 11th and 12th chapter of Daniel speaks about the “King of the North”. According to this end time prophecy he shall play an important role in the events of the last days. Therefore it is very important we know who this is, especially today in our time.

To those who have kept abreast with the unrolling of the Scroll, we are thankful that we do indeed have identification markers on who this KON is today.
Yes, there has been a progression of KON’s down through time, but right now there is one and it has remained the same since the Rod declared him back in the 1940’s.

“And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.” (Dan 11:40-45)

What is the key to understanding who the King of the North is?

“After the dividing of Alexander’s dominion, Egypt and Palestine were, as previously seen, ruled first, by the Ptolemies; second, by Pagan Rome (Dan. 11:15, 16); third, by the Dan. 11:22); and fourth, again by the Christians — specifically by Great Britain (Dan. 11:41).

    These are the only historically and prophetically recorded supersessions involving the ancient lands of Egypt and Palestine.  The surrendering of these countries, by one prophetic king to the other, unmistakably identifies “the king of the north” and “the king of the south” from the time of the dividing of Alexander’s empire to the present time, and leaves no room for doubt or for argument ….in modern times the Mohammedan rulers are in prophecy called the “king of the south,” while England’s kings, along with the disrupted family of Christianized kings whom prophecy says will not cleave one to another (Dan. 2:43), are called “king of the north.”(Tract 12, p.86-87)

Who is the KON in the time of the end?

Since those who asked the questions agree with us that we are now living in the “time of the end,” we need not say more concerning that phase of the subject, but we do need to have them tell us which power at this particular time, in the time of the end, has added “the glorious land” (Palestine), Egypt, and other countries to his empire.  The answer that anyone can give is that Great Britain took these from Turkey and has virtually ruled them ever since. Plainly then, during the time of the end Great Britain is the king of the north and Turkey is the king of the south.” (1 TG, No. 4, p.22)

How are we assured to know if the KON title passes to another king or country?

“…concerning the place of his tabernacles and his end, also as to whether another Christian power shall inherit the title “king of the north” before verse 45 is fulfilled, only time itself will positively portray the whole truth.(2 TG, no. 42, p.29)

So we have great clarity in the KON understanding. It amazes yours truly how the Lord gave us such unmistakeable clues as to Great Britain being the KON at the time of the end. But some may ask –how can that be as GB has nothing to do with Israel? Well if you ask that question you would be showing yourself lacking in the proper study about historical events and current events.

Briefly, the origins of the end time relocation of the Jews to Israel came about with the 1917 Balfour declaration from the Rothschilds of Great Britain. This family has virtually ruled GB for decades, albeit behind the scenes. Then in 1948 the nation of Israel was declared a sovereign nation due largely to the influence of the Rothschilds.

For a recent article from the Jewish Chronicle about some Rothschild history in connection with Israel, see this link —

The Zionist movement came to Israel and through the Rothschilds, and Israel has still been
controlled by this Zionist element. In other words Israel is still ruled by Great Britain through it’s master — the Rothschilds, although not readily seen on purpose. Thus we know that the current KON , who still controls the Holy Land is –Great Britain as forecast by the Rod. No other nation has took over since the declaration was made in 1 TG, no.4, p.22.

But as the Bible predicts the GB KON/ Rothschilds shall fall very soon and “come to his end and none shall help him.”

Get ready as we seem to be on the verge of this coming to his end, as the KON is making his final push through world domination in the form of Covid 19 and other schemes. It all will come crashing down and the Lord’s army, the 144,000 will take the scene–get ready!
The Globalists, led by the KON — Great Britain/Rothschilds, will be alowed to dominate no longer.

Anti-Typical Elijah

Why Elijah? | Godsloveandlaw's Blog

Recently we were invited to give the presentation called “The Anti-Typical Elijah” based on the promise of Mal. 4:5-6. One of the two leading organizations called Mountain Dale , based in New York, has put on Sabbath morning studies for close to a year now, and to this live study we were invited to present. The Lord was gracious as we entertained numerous questions and comments from the brethren. We would like to provide the link to watch it. May you be blessed and all glory and honor goes to HIM who is worthy!
