In the Garden

001

Broccoli Florets have formed on several of my plants.

003

This Hamlin Orange Tree is covered in blooms even though it’s still cool here. My Ponderosa Lemon Tree is covered in blossoms too but I did not take a picture of it.

004

Onions are getting bigger. I need to get these in the ground soon. I still have not moved my rose and planted the blueberry bushes either.

005

This is a beet that I have growing in a pot. The leaves look sparse or meager to me.

002

These are my beets that are growing in the ground. The leaves look much healthier. Maybe the ground dirt has more nutrients? Beet roots don’t grow very deep so I assume its because of more nutrients in ground dirt. I’m thinking about composting or making my own dirt in the future.

006

I came back to this post because I saw that I have a few cauliflower growing too. At first, the leaves were covering the heads. Now all I need is a cow and a few chickens…just kidding. No really. 🙂

Statistics About the Bible

worldmap

There are about 7,000 languages on the earth. Most of us know that the bible is the most read and translated book in the world. According to United Bible Societies in October 2011, there were 469 languages with a complete bible and 2,527 with some scriptures. But did you know there are countries where the bible is banned or restricted-monitored? There are about 53 countries that ban or restrict the bible from being read.

Here are some of the countries where the bible is banned/restricted: Vietnam, Nigeria, Belarus, Sri Lanka, India, Bhutan, Indonesia, Nepal, Uzbekistan, Tunisia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Gaza, Burma (Myanmar), Chiapas Mexico, Cuba, Columbia, Bangladesh, Mindanao Philippines, North Korea, Maldives, Turkmenistan, Libya, Yemen, Mauritania, Afghanistan, Algeria, Lebanon, Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Comoros, Djibouti, Iran, Iraq, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Brunei, Malaysia. In China bible sales are monitored and restricted to certain groups.

*These countries banned the bible most likely because of Christianity. Some of these people in these countries may not have heard the truth from Hebrew Israylites, yet.

Baruch OYL

blackseed2

I recently bought black (cumin) seed oil. In English this oil is also called Nigella Sativa or Black Caraway. This oil was used, I read, by the Egyptians and also the Muslims for thousands of years. It has also been used by Indians for thousands of years and they call it Kalonji Oil. Interestingly, Muslims call this oil Baraka Oil or Blessed Oil. Barak or Baruch means blessed in Hebrew. Could this OYL be from the Hebrews? Remember our ways move wherever we are scattered.

*Yah showed me and yes the Hebrews did grow black cumin. Read Isaiah 28:25,27. HalleluYah.

Yah Knows the Intentions On Our Hearts

…For the word of Yah is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:12-13.

2 Malakim Chapters 1 and 2

The book of second Kings continues the history of the two separate kingdoms of Yahudah and Ysrayl, the tragic history of two nations on a collision course with captivity. The author systematically traces the reigning monarchs of Ysrayl and Yahudah, first by carrying one nation’s history forward, then retracing the same period for the other nation. The book of 2 Kings has two main parts. The first part (1-17) is the history of the two kingdoms until 722 B.C., when the northern kingdom was conquered by the Assyrians. Samaria, the capital city of Ysrayl was destroyed and the people of that kingdom were taken as prisoners to Assyria. Only Yahudah, the southern kingdom was left. Nineteen consecutive evil kings rule in Ysrayl, leading to the captivity by Assyria.

The second part of the book (18-25) is the history of Yahudah until 586 B.C., when it was conquered by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The picture is somewhat brighter in Yahudah where righteous kings occasionally emerge to reform the evils of their predecessors. In the end however, sin outweighs righteousness and Yahudah is marched off to Babylon. Yahrushalom, the capital city, was completely destroyed and many of the people of Yahudah and Yahrushalom were led away as prisoners to Babylon. King Nebuchadnezzar then made Gedaliyah ruler of those left in Yahudah. The book concludes with some hope for Yahudah’s future: King Yahoiachin is released from prison in Babylon and is invited to eat with the Babylonian king every day.

According to the book of 2 Kings, Ysrayl and Yahudah were destroyed because the people refused to be faithful to Yah. He had sent prophets over and over to warn the people and their kings to stop worshiping the gods and to turn back to Him. Finally the people were punished. The two kingdoms were destroyed and the people were forced to live in foreign nations far from their own land. The fall of Yahurshalom is one of the most important events in Ysrayl’s history. The book itself explains why this disaster took place:

Because of the anger of Yah this happened in Ysrayl and Yahudah, that He finally cast them out from His presence (2 Kings 24:20).

Chapter 1: King Ahaziyah Falls and Injures Himself and Inquires of a God and Not Yah: Yah Judges Ahaziyah: Yah Sends Yliyah to the Messengers to Condemn Ahaziyah

1 Moab rebelled against Ysrayl after the death of Ahab. 2 Now Ahaziyah fell through the lattice of his upper room in Samaria and was injured. So he sent messengers and said to them, “Go, inquire of Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, whether I shall recover from this injury”. 3 But the angel of Yah said to Yliyah the Tishbite, “Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and say to them, ‘Is it because there is no Power in Ysrayl, that you are going to inquire of Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron’? 5 Now therefore, thus says Yah: ‘You shall not come down from the bed to which you have gone up but you shall surely die’.” So Yliyah departed.

*See the Pseudepigrapha Volume 2, the Ascension of Isaiah chapter 2:14 Yliyah prophesied that he would die in bed from sickness. Also see 2 Chronicles 22:6.

The Messengers Deliver Yah’s Message to King Ahaziyah: Ahaziyah Recognizes the Description of Yliyah

5 And when the messengers returned to him, he said to them, “Why have you come back”? 6 So they said to him, “A man came up to meet us and said to us, ‘Go, return to the king who sent you and say to him, thus says Yah: ‘Is it because there is no Power in Ysrayl that you are sending to inquire of Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore, you shall not come down from the bed to which you have gone up but you shall surely die’.” 7 Then he said to them, “What king of man was it who came up to meet you and told you these words”? 8 So they answered him, “A hairy man wearing a leather belt around his waist”. And he said, “It is Yliyah the Tishbite”.

Ahaziyah Sends For Yliyah: Fire Consumes the Fifty Men

9 Then the king sent to him a captain of fifty with his fifty men. So he went up to him and there he was, sitting on the top of a hill. And he spoke to him: “Man of Yah, the king has said, ‘Come down’!” 10 So Yliyah answered and said to the captain of fifty, “If I am a man of Yah, then let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men”. And fire came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.

The Captain of the Fifties Begs Yliyah Not To Ask the Fire to Consume Them: An Angel Tells Yliyah Not To Be Afraid and to Go Meet Ahaziyah

13 Again, he sent a third captain of fifty with his fifty men. and the third captain of fifty went up and came and fell on his knees before Yliyah and pleaded with him and said to him: “Man of Yah, please let my life and the life of these fifty servants of yours be precious in your sight. 14 Look, fire has come down from heaven and burned up the first two captains of fifties with their fifties. But let my life now be precious in your sight”. 15 And the angel of Yah said to Yliyah, “Go down with him. Do not be afraid of him”. So he arose and went down with him to the king. 16 Then he said to him, ‘Thus says Yah: Because yo have sent messengers to inquire of Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, is it because there is no Power in Ysrayl to inquire of His word? Therefore, you shall not come down from bed to which you have gone up but you shall surely die’.”

The Word of Yah Comes to Pass: Ahaziyah is Buried with His Fathers: Yahoram His Brother and Ahab’s Son Becomes King of Ysrayl

17 So Ahaziyah died according to the word of Yah which Yliyah had spoken. Because he had no son, Yahoram (his brother, the son of Ahab king of Ysrayl) became king in his place, in the second year of Yahoram the son of Yahoshaphat, king of Yahudah. 18 Now, the rest of the acts of Ahaziyah which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Ysrayl?

Chapter 2: Before Yliyah Sees a Vision of Heaven via Whirlwind Yliyah and Ylishua Go to Gilgal: Ylishua Will Not Let Yliyah Go to Bethyl Alone: The Young Prophets Knew that Yliyah Would See a Vision of Yah:

1 And it came to pass, when Yah was about to take up Yliyah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Yliyah went with Ylishua from Gilgal. 2 Then Yliyah said to Ylishua, “Stay here, please for Yah has sent me on to Bethyl”. But Ylishua said, “As Yah lives and as your soul lives, I will not leave you”! So they went down to Bethyl. 3 Now the sons of the prophets who were at Bethyl came out to Ylishua and said to him, “Ylishua and said to him, “Do you know that Yah will take away your master from over you today”? And he said, “Yes, I know. Keep silent”!

Ylishua Will Not Let Yliyah Go to Yericho Alone: The Young Prophets Know that Yliyah Will Be Taken Up: Yah Sends Yliyah to the Yordan River: Yliyah Divides the Yordan River with His Robe

4 Then Yliyah said to him, “Ylishua, stay here please for Yah has sent me on to Yericho”. But he said, “As Yah lives and as your soul lives, I will not leave you”! So they came to Yericho. 5 Now the sons of the prophets who were at Yericho came to Ylishua and said to him, “Do you know that Yah will take away your master from over you today”? So he answered , “Yes , I know, keep silent”! 6 Then Yliyah said to him, “Stay here, please for Yah has sent me on to the Yordan”. But he said, “As Yah lives and as your soul lives, I will not leave you”! So the two of them went on. 7 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went and stood facing them at a distance, while the two of them stood by the Yordan. 8 Now Yliyah took his mantle (cloak,robe), rolled it up and struck the water and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground.

Ylishua Asks For a Double Portion of a Spirit Like Yliyah’s

9 And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Yliyah said to Ylishua, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you”? Ylishua said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me”. 10 So he said, “You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you but if not, it shall not be so”. 11 Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire and separated the two of them and Yliyah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

*This is not high heaven that Yliyah is taken in to and Yliyah is not dead. Yah took Yliyah up to show him a vision just like we just read that Micaiyah had a vision of Yah’s throne room with malakim on His right and left. See 2 Chronicles 21:12, Yliyah later writes a letter. Yahoshua had a vision of Yliyah and Moshe in the kingdom in Mattithyah 17:3.

Ylishua Sees Yliyah Go Up and Receives a Double Portion of Yliyah’s Spirit or Ways: Ylishua Divides the Yordan River with Yliyah’s Robe

12 And Ylishua saw it and he cried out, “My Abba, my Abba, the chariot of Ysrayl and its horsemen!” So he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them into two pieces. 13 He also took up the robe of Yliyah that had fallen from him and went back and stood by the bank of the Yordan. 14 Then he took the mantle of Yliyah that had fallen from him and struck the water and said, “Where is Yah Almighty of Yliyah? And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that and Ylishua crossed over.

*Yahoshua crossed the Yordan in Matthew 19:1, Mark 10:1, Matthew 4:25 and Mark 3:7-8.

*Yliyah means Yah is my Power in Hebrew.

*Ylishua means The Power is my salvation in Hebrew.

*In Malachiyah 4:5-6, Yah says before the Day of Yah, He will send Yliyah meaning He is sending the prophet like Yliyah, Yahoshua. Yahoshua was like Moshe and Yliyah. Yahoshua is going to bring the fire down like Yliyah. Yliyah brought fire down twice, once at Mount Carmyl and again when Ahaziyah sent 50 men after him. The bible describes Yah’s words as a sword or fire in Yeremiyah 5:14, Psalm 18:8, Revelation 1:16, Revelation 2:16 and Revelation 19:15. The two witnesses will have fire in their mouths according to Revelation 11:3-6. In Matthew 16:13-14 and Luke 9:7-8, the people wondered what prophet Yahoshua was comparable to including Yliyah. They also thought Yahcanan the Immerser was Yliyah, John 1:19-28. 2 Kepha 3:12 says this fire will come down in the future.

The Sons of the Prophets Know the Spirit of Yliyah is Upon Ylishua and Bow Before Him: The Young Prophets Search For Yliyah in the Mountains and Valleys Three Days

15 Now when the sons of the prophets who were from Yericho saw him, they said, “The spirit of Yliyah rests on Ylishua”. And they came to meet him and bowed to the ground before him. 16 Then they said to him, “Look now, there are fifty strong men with your servants. Please let them go and search for your master, lest perhaps the Spirit of Yah has taken him up and cast him upon some mountain or into some valley” And he said, “You shall not send anyone”. 17 But when they urged him till he was ashamed, he said, “Send them”! Therefore, they sent fifty men and they searched for three days but did not find him. 18 And when they came back to him, for had stayed in Yericho, he said to them, “Did I not say to you, ‘Do not go’?”

Ylishua Heals the Barren Land and Water with Salt

19 Then the men of the city said to Ylishua, “Please notice, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my master sees but the water is bad and the ground is barren”. 20 And he said, “Bring me a new bowl and put salt in it”. So they brought it to him. 21 Then he went out to the source of the water and cast in the salt there and said, “Thus says Yah: ‘I have healed this water from it there shall be no more death or barrenness’.”22 So the water remains healed to this day according to the word of Ylishua which he spoke.

Ylishua Pronounces a Curse on “No-Manners” Children that Call Him Bald-Headed

23 Then he went up from there to Bethyl and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you bald-headed! Go up, you bald-headed”! 24 So he turned around and looked at them and pronounced a curse on them in the name of Yah. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths. 25 Then he went from there to Mount Carmyl and from there he returned to Samaria.

 

 

 

 

In the Garden

003

This is about half of my carrot harvest.

004

I gathered a few sweet peas today. I gather them a couple of times a week.

005

Most of the carrots grew long like this but I did have a few with splits or cracks. I threw those away.

006

I bought two blueberry ‘misty’ bushes last week. Hopefully, I can get them in the ground this week.

007

I planted beets in rows. This is the first time putting them in the ground. Usually I plant them in pots.

008

My patch of broccoli and cauliflower.

009

These are more sweet peas seedlings on the other side of my cauliflower. I plan to move the peas over soon because I’m going to move my rose bush over here. And where my rose bush is now, I plan to put the blueberry patch.

010

I pulled up this yellow carrot. Then a few minutes later, I pulled up another yellow carrot.

011

I pulled a white carrot. It looks like a parsnip?

012

All the carrots are pulled.  I’m going to plant onions in its place, in the ground soon.

Now I understand why I hear some people saying ‘It’s important to know where our food comes from’. Last night I was watching this backyard farmer on YouTube. He put pig manure on his green leafy vegetables! I have never seen that before. It made me wonder what they could be putting on the greens at the supermarket. For now I will just diligently wash and pray over my greens from the supermarket but I plan on growing more greens for myself. Greens grow better up north  (or north of where I’m at) but I will try to grow them.

Anointing OYL

kemioYL

A few weeks ago, I was looking at some old school hair products and Kemi OYL was one of them. Kemi is short for Kemet or the Egyptians. When I saw this bottle, I also saw YL in OYL and wanted to make a post about ‘Anointing OYL’ but for a few weeks now, I did not know what the post would be about. I just knew that Yah was giving me something to see. It looks like the Egyptians never forgot YL when we left Egypt or maybe the Hebrews never forgot Egypt. I think this is a Hebrew owned company (from Maryland/DC area?).

koyl

Did you know Popeye’s girlfriend was named Olive OYL? The name Olivia is pronounced O-li-vi-Yah and here is Olive OYL.

OYL shows the Almighty Power’s hand, YL Shaddei. The Power in OYL.

Nia Long back in the day. Remember the conscious gear from the late 80s and early 90s?

Pam Grier, Foxy Brown/Coffy. I read her autobiography about 4 years ago. (Paraphrased) She said there was so much cocaine in her womb from Richard Pryor’s body that doctor said she may die if she keeps on with this behavior. I never forgot that about her book. :0

1 Malakim Chapters 21 and 22

Chapter 21: Ahab Becomes Depressed and Will Not Eat Because Naboth Will Not Sell His Land in Yezreyl

1 And it came to pass after these things that Naboth the Yezeylite had a vineyard which was in Yezeyl, next to the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. 2 So Ahab spoke to Naboth saying, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden because it is near, next to my house and for it, I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money”. 3 But Naboth said to Ahab, “Yah forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you”! 4 So Ahab went into his house sullen and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Yezreylite had spoken to him, for he had said, “I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers”. And he lay down on his bed and turned away his face and would not eat no food.

Jezebel Commands Ahab to Get Up and Eat: Jezebel Goes Behind Ahab’s Back Uses His Seal to Write the Zahken and Nobles a Scheme to Get Naboth’s Land

5 But Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, “Why is your spirit so sullen that you eat no food”? 6 He said to her, “Because I spoke to Naboth the Yezreylite and said to him, ‘Give me your vineyard for money or else if it pleases you, I will give you another vineyard for it’. And he answered, ‘I will not give you my vineyard’.” 7 Then Jezebel his wife said to him, “You now exercise authority over Ysrayl! Arise, eat food and let your heart be cheerful. I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Yezeylite”. 8 And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal and sent the letters to the zahken and the nobles who were dwelling in the city of Naboth. 9 She wrote letters saying: Proclaim a fast and seat Naboth with high honor among the people. 10 And seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him saying, “You have blasphemed Yah and the king”. Then take him out and stone him, that he may die.

The Two Liars Sent by Jezebel Falsely Accuse Naboth of Blasphemy: Naboth is Stoned

11 So the men of his city, the zahken and nobles who were inhabitants of his city, did as Jezebel had sent to them, as it was written in the letters which she had sent to them. 12 They proclaimed a fast and seated Naboth with high honor among the people. 13 And two men, scoundrels came in and sat before him and the scoundrels witnessed against him, against Naboth, in the presence of the people saying, “Naboth has blasphemed Yah and the king”! Then they took him outside the city and stoned him with stones, so that he died. 14 Then they sent to Jezebel saying, “Naboth has been stoned and is dead”.

Jezebel Informs Ahab that Naboth is Dead and to Get Out of Bed and Enjoy His Land

15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel (Isabel) heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, “Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Yezreylite, which he refused to give you for money. For Naboth is not alive but dead”. 16 So it was when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab got up and went down to take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Yezreylite.

Yah Sends Yliyah to Condemn Ahab Saying Dogs Shall Lick Your Blood

17 Then the word of Yah came to Yliyah the Tishbite saying: 18 “Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Ysrayl, who lives in Samaria. There he is, in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone down to take possession of it. 19 You shall speak to him saying, ‘Thus says Yah: Have you murdered and also taken possession’?” And you shall speak to him saying, ‘Thus says Yah: In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs shall lick your blood even yours’.”

*Compare to Mattithyah 5:38 (NLT) and Exodus 21:23-25, You have heard the law that says the punishment must match the injury, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

20 So Ahab said to Yliyah, “Have you found me, O my enemy”? And he answered, “I have found you because you have sold yourself to do evil in the sight of Yah.

*Remember Ahab called Yliyah ‘O Troubler’ and now he says ‘O My Enemy’. Ahab’s own sins caused his trouble.

Yah Condemns Jezebel Saying the Dogs Shall Eat Her by the Wall of Yezreyl: Yah Says the Dogs and Birds Shall Eat the Descendants of Ahab

21 ‘Behold, I will bring calamity on you. I will take away your posterity (riches) and will cut off from Ahab every male in Ysrayl, both bond and free. 22 I will make your house like the house of Yeroboam the son of Nebat and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahiyah because of the provocation with which you have provoked Me to anger and made Ysrayl sin’. 23 And concerning Jezebel, Yah also spoke saying, ‘the dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Yezreyl’. (Compare to 2 Kings 9:36). 24 The dogs shall eat whoever belongs to Ahab and dies in the city and the birds of the air shall eat whoever dies in the fields”.

Ahab Was Evil Because He Let His Wife Jezebel Stir Him Up and Also He Worshiped the Amorite Gods

25 But there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do wickedness in the sight of Yah because Jezebel his wife stirred him up. 26 And he behaved very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites had done, whom Yah had cast out before the children of Ysrayl.

Ahab Humbles Himself Before Yah and Mourns: Yah Gives Ahab Mercy

27 So it was, when Ahab heard those words, that he tore his clothes and put sackcloth on his body and fasted and lay in sackcloth and went about morning. 28 And the word of Yah came to Yliyah the Tishbite saying: 29 “See how Ahab has humbled himself before Me? Because he has humbled himself before Me, I will not bring the calamity in his days. In the days of his son, I will bring the calamity on his house”.

Chapter 22: King Yahoshaphat of Yahudah Agrees to go to War with King Ahab of Ysrayl Against Syria  

1 Now three years passed without war between Syria and Ysrayl. 2 Then it came to pass, in the third year, that Yahoshaphat the king of Yahudah went down to visit the king of Ysrayl. 3 And the king of Ysrayl said to his servants, “Do you know that Ramoth in Gilead is ours but we hesitate to take it out of the hand of king of Syria”? 4 So he said to Yahoshaphat, “Will you go with me to fight at Ramoth Gilead”? Yahoshaphat said to the king of Ysrayl, “I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses”.

Yahoshaphat Insists that Ahab Inquire of Yah First: Ahab Complains that Micaiyah Never Prophesies Good Concerning Him: The Other Prophets Only Prophesied Good Concerning Ramoth Gilead

5 Also Yahoshaphat said to the king of Ysrayl, “Please inquire for the word of Yah today”. 6 Then the king of Ysrayl gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men and said to them, “Shall I go against Ramoth Gilead to fight or shall I refrain”? So they said, “Go up, for Yah will deliver it into the hand of the king”. 7 And Yahoshaphat said, “Is there not still a prophet of Yah here, that we may inquire of Him”? 8 So the king of Ysrayl said to Yahoshaphat, “There is still one man, Micaiyah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of Yah but I hate him because he does not prophesy good concerning me but evil”. And Yahoshaphat said, “Let not the king say such things”! 9 Then the king of Ysrayl called an officer and said, “Bring Micaiyah the son of Imlah quickly”! 10 The king of Ysrayl and Yahoshaphat the king of Yahudah, having put on their robes, sat each on his throne, at a threshing floor at the entrance of the gate of Samaria and all the prophets prophesied before them. 11 Now Zedekiyah the son of Chenaanah had made horns of iron for himself and he said, “Thus says Yah: ‘With these you shall gore the Syrians until they are destroyed’.” 12 And all prophets prophesied so saying, “Go up to Ramoth Gilead and prosper, for Yah will deliver it into the king’s hand”.

At First Micaiyah Tells Them What They Want to Hear

13 Then the messenger who had gone to call Micaiyah spoke to him saying, “Listen, the words of the prophets with one accord encourage the king. Please, let your word be like the word of them and speak encouragement”. 14 And Micaiyah said, “As Yah lives, whatever Yah says to me, that I will speak”. 15 Then he came to the king and the king said to him, “Micaiyah, shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead or shall we refrain”? And he answered him, “Go and prosper, for Yah will deliver it into the hand of the king”! 16 So the king said to him, “How many times shall I make you swear that you tell me nothing but the truth in the name of Yah”?

Micaiyah Saw a Vision of Yah on His Throne With Malakim on His Right and Left: Yah Allows a Lying Spirit to Persuade Ahab Through the Other Prophets: Micaiyah Prophesies Disaster For Ahab

17 Then he said, “I saw all Ysrayl scattered on the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd. And Yah said, ‘These have no master. Let each return to his house in peace’. 18 And the king of Ysrayl said to Yahoshaphat, “Did I not tell you he would not prophesy good concerning me but evil”? 19 Then Micaiyah said, “Therefore, hear the word of Yah: I saw Yah sitting on His throne and all the host of heaven standing by on His right hand and on His left. 20 And Yah said, ‘Who will persuade Ahab to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead’? So one spoke in this manner and another spoke in that manner. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before Yah and said, ‘I will persuade him’. 22 Yah said to him, ‘In what way’? So he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets’. And Yah said, ‘You shall persuade him and also prevail. Go out and do so’.” 23 “Therefore look! Yah has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours and Yah has declared disaster against you”.

The False Prophet Zedekiyah Slaps Micaiyah Making it Seem as Though Micaiyah is Lying

24 Now Zedekiyah the son of Chenaanah went near and struck Micaiyah on the cheek and said, “Which way did the spirit from Yah go from me to speak to you”? 25 And Micaiyah said, “Indeed, you shall see on that day when you go into an inner chamber to hide”! 26 So the king of Ysrayl said, “Take Micaiyah and return him to Amon the governor of the city and to Yoash the king’s son–27 And say, ‘Thus says the king: “Put this fellow in prison and feed him with bread of affliction and water of affliction until I come in peace’.” 28 But Micaiyah said, “If you ever return in peace, Yah has not spoken by me”. And he said, “Take heed, all you people”!

*Compare to Mattithyah 5:39 and Luke 6:29, where Yahoshua talks about when a person slaps you. He also said buy a sword. Ecclesiastes 3:8, there is a time for war and a time for peace. Job was slapped he said in Job 16:10. Yahoshua was slapped in Matthew 26:67 and John 18:22-23.

*Read about Micaiyah being put in prison and King Ahaziyah has the brother of Zedekiyah to kill Micaiyah in the Pseudipigrapha Volume 2, The Ascension of Isaiah chapter 2: 12-16.

Ahab Goes into Battle Disguised: The Syrians Hunt Ahab and Wound Him and Dies: Ahab’s Blood Spills in the Chariot: The War Ends

29 So the king of Ysrayl and Yahoshaphat the king of Yahudah went up to Ramoth Gilead. 30 And the king of Ysrayl said to Yahoshaphat, “I will disguise myself and go into battle but you put on your robes”. So the king of Ysrayl disguised himself and went into battle. 31 Now the king of Syria had commanded the thirty-two captains of his chariots saying, “Fight with no one small or great but only with the king of Ysrayl”. 32 So it was, when the captains of the chariots saw Yahoshaphat, that they said, “Surely it is the king of Ysrayl”! Therefore, they turned aside to fight against him and Yahoshaphat cried out. 33 And it happened, when the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Ysrayl, that they turned back from pursuing him. 34 Now a certain man drew a bow at random and struck the king of Ysrayl between the joints of his armor. So he said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn around and take me out of the battle, for I am wounded”. 35 The battle increased that day and the king was propped up in his chariot, facing the Syrians and died at evening. The blood ran out from the wound onto the floor of the chariot. 36 Then, as the sun was going down, a shout went throughout the army saying, “Every man to his city and every man to his own country”!

And they buried the king in Samaria. 38 Then someone washed the chariot at a pool in Samaria and the dogs licked up his blood while the harlots bathed (or as they washed his armor), according to the word of Yah which He had spoken. 39 Now the rest of the acts of Ahab and all that he did, the ivory house which he built and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Ysrayl?

His mother’s name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi. 43 And he walked in all the ways of his father Asayah. He did not turn aside from them, doing what was right in the eyes of Yah. Nevertheless, the high places were not taken away, for the people offered sacrifices and burned incense on the high places. 44 Also Yahoshaphat made peace with the king of Ysrayl.

45 Now the rest of the acts of Yahoshaphat, the might that he showed and how he made war, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yahudah? 46 And the rest of the perverted persons (those practicing sodomy and/or prostitution in religious rituals to the fallen angels), who remained in the days of his father Asayah, he banished from the land. 47 There was then no king in Edom, only a deputy of the king. 48 Yahoshaphat made merchant ships (or ships of Tarshish) to go to Ophir for gold but they never sailed. For the ships were wrecked at Ezion Geber. 49 Then Ahaziyah the son of Ahab said to Yahoshaphat, “Let my servants go with your servants in the ships”. But Yahoshaphat would not.
