TAKEN FROM YHWH-YaH ELOHIM SHADDAI'S HEBREW BOOK THAT YaH GAVE TO THE HEBREWS WHEN YaH DELIVERED THEM OUT OF EGYPTIAN BONDAGE
( EXO 32:32-33 "MY BOOK" AND EXO 24:12 "WHICH I (YaH) HAVE WRITTEN)
YaH'S BOOK SPEAKS OF JUDAH -YEHOSHUA AND SHILOH/MESSIAS
Yehoshua as the son of man sprang out of the tribe of Judah = Heb 7:14 For it is evident that our Master sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
JACOB-ISRAEL PROPHESIED OF JUDAH HIS SON IN HIS BLESSING.
(Gen 49:8 KJV) Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren ( 12 tribes of Israel) shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children ( 11 sons of Jacob-Israel ) shall bow down before thee ( Judah) .
ISRAEL CALLED FIRSTBORN SON OF YaH
After Israel is delivered out of Egyptian bondage they ( Israel ) are called firstborn Son of YHWH-YaH ( Exo 4:22) and Yah plants Israel as a VINE.
(Exo 4:22 KJV) And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith YHWH-YAH, Israel is MY son, even MY firstborn:
ISRAEL IS A VINE BUT YEHOSHUA IS THE CHOICE VINE THE TRUE VINE (JOHN 15:1)
(Psa 80:8 KJV) Thou ( YaH ) hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou ( YaH ) hast cast out the heathen, and planted it ( the VINE) .
LATER IN THE HISTORY OF ISRAEL YaH CALLED HIS FIRSTBORN SON A LAMB
(Hosea 4:16 KJV) For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
ISRAEL IS CALLED LAMB BY YaH BECAUSE THE SPIRIT SON MASHIACH-MESSIAS WOULD DWELL WITHIN ISRAEL MAKING ISRAEL THE FIRSTBORN COVENANT SON OF YaH AND MAKING ISRAEL THE LAMB THAT WOULD BRING FORTH YEHOSHUA THE MESSIAS LAMB OF YaH.
JUDAH AS A TRIBE IN ISRAEL, THE FIRST BORN SON OF YAH, IS A LION'S CUB
(Gen 49:9 KJV) Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
From Israel the first born Son of Yah the lamb, would spring Yehoshua as the Lamb of YaH out of the tribe Judah that whelp-cub becomes the lion of the tribe of Judah. The lion whelp is called MY SON and Yehoshua the son of man of Judah and from Nazareth would always be a Son of Israel-Jacob holy unto YaH.
(Luke 2:23 KJV) (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
THE ROOT OF DAVID
(Acts 13:22 KJV) And when YaH had removed him (Saul), he ( YaH) raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also YaH gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine ( YaH's) own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.
(Rev 5:5 KJV) And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
The ROOT of Jesse ( Isa 11:10 ) was the ROOT David and Yehoshua was the ROOT of David (Rev 5:5 and Rev 22:16) ) also called the SEED of David in (2 Tim 2:8)
(Rev 22:16 KJV) I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
(2 Tim 2:8 KJV) Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
(Gen 49:10 KJV) The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh=H7886=Messias come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
The sceptre in Strong's Concordance = H7626-writing=YaH's writings=YaH's Book= (Exo 24:12 and Exo 32:32-33 shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between Judah's feet ( Moses) (John 1:17 KJV) For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ-Messias.
The law giver Moses gave the law from beneath the feet of Judah.
Exo 24:12 teaches us that Yah wrote (Exo 24:12 KJV) And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I HAVE WRITTEN; that thou mayest teach them.
INTERESTING FACT REGARDING SHILOH
Shiloh means Christ/Anointing and is mentioned 33 times in 31 verses. It is interesting that Yehoshua Messias was killed at age 33 and that the gospel was to Israel first for 31 years, from Pentecost AD 33 until Acts 28:28 AD 64. It was during those 31 years that YaH sent the gospel of his salvation unto Israel and then in Acts 28:28 AD 64 that salvation was sent unto the Gentiles heathen with YaH saying "they would hear it".
(Acts 28:28 KJV) Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they ( THE GENTILES) WILL HEAR IT.
In Gen 49:10 we see explained why Yehoshua washed the
feet of his disciples; he was washing the lawgiver (Moses) off their feet. Yehoshua sprang out of Juda not out from between the feet of Judah as a lawgiver but as said in (John 1:17 KJV) For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Grace and truth that gives eternal life and indeed sets free from the ministration of death the Mosaic law of sin and death. (2 Cor 3:7 KJV) But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
GEN 49:11 -THE BINDING OF HIS FOAL UNTO THE VINE ( ISRAEL PSA 80:8) AND HIS ASS'S COLT UNTO THE CHOICE VINE
Gen 49:11 ( Judah) Binding-H631 his foal-H5895 unto the vine,H1612 and his ass'sH860 coltH1121 unto the choice vine;H8321 he washedH3526 his garmentsH3830 in wine,H3196 and his clothesH5497 in the bloodH1818 of grapes:H6025
Gen 49:11 (Judah) (binding-H631-hitches) his (foal-H5895-burden) unto the vine=(Psa 80:8 Israel), and Judah's she ass's colt unto the choice vine (John 15:1 Yehoshua true vine); he (Judah) washed-H3526-trampled his garments ( wife's) in wine ( winebibbing) , and his ( Judah's) clothes-H5497-covering in the blood-H1818- drops of blood of grapes-of Israel = Hosea 9:10
(Hosea 9:10 KJV) I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.
Gen 49:11 Judah hitches his burden unto the vine = (Psa 80:8 Israel), and Judah's she ass's colt unto the choice vine (John 15:1 Yehoshua the true vine); he (Judah) trampled his wife's winebibbing , and his ( Judah's) covering in the drops of blood of Israel = I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness......
The burden of Judah would no longer be carried by the house of Judah once Yehoshua was anointed as Shiloh-Messias that sprang out of Juda. Israel the vine the grapes would now bear the burden of accepting or rejecting their Shiloh-Messias or become broken off branches from the true vine Yehoshua Mashiach-Messais.
Judah's she ass had a colt that he bound unto the choice vine. This is prophecy concerning Yehoshua the true vine and his churches the branches.
(Gen 49:11 KJV) Binding his (Judah's) foal unto the vine (Israel) , and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
Gen 49:11 Judah hitches his burden unto the vine = ( Israel Psa 80:8 ), and Judah's she ass's colt unto the choice vine = (John 15:1 Yehoshua the true vine the head
of the churches that are the branches ( John 15:5) of the true vine ); Yehoshua trampled his wife's winebibbing , and Yehoshua's veil the drops of blood of Israel = I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness......(Hosea 9:10 KJV) I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.
(Heb 8:8 KJV) For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith YHWH-YaH , when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the
house of Judah:
The burden of Judah would no longer be carried by the house of Judah once Yehoshua was anointed as Shiloh-Messias that sprang out of Juda.
Israel the vine would now bear the burden of accepting or rejecting their Shiloh-Messias.
Judah's she ass had a colt that he bound unto the choice vine. This is prophecy concerning Yehoshua as the choice vine and his churches the branches while Israel is a vine but not the choice vine.
(John 15:1 KJV) I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
(Mat 21:1 KJV) And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
(Mat 21:2 KJV) Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: LOOSE THEM, and bring THEM unto me.
Matt 21:2 explains there were two animals with one being a she ass and the other a colt that was with tired up with the ass.
(Mat 21:3 KJV) And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, the master hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
(Mat 21:4 KJV) All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
(Mat 21:5 KJV) Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
For those who wonder how Yehoshua could sit on an ass and a foal at the same time need only to see the wooden harness that straddles between an ass and her foal with the rider sitting in between them; thereby sitting on both of them while being carried by both.
