And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the Torah,
and the word of YHWH from Jerusalem.
The Mountain of YHWH is Mount Tzion (ts-ee-yone) in Jerusalem, the Word of YHWH has gone out from Jerusalem and continues to do so now and in the future. Jerusalem has always been located where it is today in Israel, many landmarks and geographical signs tell it’s ancient history. Those who have experienced Jerusalem from a spiritual perspective have sensed the presence of both good and evil in Jerusalem, more than in other locations, however the Mountain of YHWH is referring not only to the physical Mt. Tzion in Jerusalem, but also to the Government of YHWH.
“And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain , and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from Elohim.” Revelations 21:10
The earthly Jerusalem was to be a place of connection to the Heavenly Jerusalem, it was YHWH’s intention that His Will would be done on earth as it is in Heaven, however mankind has chosen not to respond to YHWH, Torah or His Mashiyach.
“O YHWH, according to all Your Righteousness, I beseech You, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people are become a reproach to all that are about us.” Daniel 9:16
Regardless of man’s rebellion against YHWH He promises to reconcile the earthly city of Jerusalem to the heavenly city Jerusalem.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of YHWH is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. YHWH also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but YHWH will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall you know that I am YHWH your Elohim dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. Joel 3:14-17
Not all of the people of Israel are the “Israel of Elohim”, not all of Israel is seeking to enter into the Kingdom of Elohim, many are at war with YHWH and His Mashiyach and have chosen to rebel and set up their own gods through religions, traditions or humanism.
The Word of Yahweh is Mashiyach
Tzion is the government of Mashiyach under YHWH’s authority
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against YHWH, and against His Mashiyach, saying, “let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us”. He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: Adonai shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and trouble them in His sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: YHWH has said unto me, You are my Son; this day have I begotten You.
The speaker refers to a faction of people who have turned against YHWH, and then refers to Adonai who shall have them in derision. It says that these self appointed rulers will be against “YHWH and His Mashiyach”. In this verse Adonai is referring to HaMashiyach. Then YHWH says unto me, “You are my Son; this day have I begotten You”, clearly “me” is the speaker, who is Adonai, who is HaMashiyach. Clearly the Kings of the earth have usurped the Government of Mashiyach and installed their own governments and values which are contrary to HaMashiyach.
Mashiyach is the Son of YHWH
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty Elohim, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of YHWH of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6,7.
This child who is a “son given”, holds the government of the Kingdom of Elohim upon His shoulder, He is HaMashiyach. David was anointed as King of Israel but he was not the “Son of YHWH”, not the mighty Elohim, not the everlasting Father, not the Prince of Peace. So herein we see how the rulership of YHWH’s government is established through HaMashiyach.
The Mountain of YHWH is Mashiyach
Thus says YHWH; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of YHWH of Hosts the holy mountain. Zechariah 8:3
One has to ask themselves, what does YHWH mean when He says He will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem? If YHWH “dwells” in a city how will that work for everyone else who dwells there?
Are you not from everlasting, O YHWH my Elohim, my Holy One? we shall not die. O YHWH, You have ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty Elohim, You have established them for correction. You are of purer eyes than to behold evil, and can not look on iniquity: wherefore look upon them that deal treacherously, and hold their tongue when the wicked devour the man that is more righteous than he? Havakuk 1:12-13
YHWH will establish His government, He will not behold evil, nor look upon iniquity. When YHWH takes up residence in Jerusalem, He will govern not only Jerusalem and all of Israel, but all the Earth, this is specifically referring to Y’shua as HaMashiyach Ben David, the Conqueror.
Seven days shall you keep a solemn feast unto YHWH your Elohim in the place which YHWH shall choose: because YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in all your increase, and in all the works of your hands, therefore you shall surely rejoice. Deuteronomy 16:15
YHWH chose Jerusalem as his dwelling place, the Torah states, “In the place which YHWH shall choose”, which is Gematria for “MASHIYACH”. The Torah Mashiyach’s Government will extend out from Jerusalem purging all the world of unrighteousness. Yochanan prophet said that “every eye shall see Him”.
Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alef and Tav, the beginning and the ending, says Adonai, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelations 1:7-8
The Mountain of YHWH connects to each soul as the Spirit of HaMashiyach, the Ruach HaKodesh must govern each one and provide discernment and understanding of His Torah and His Government.
Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great Elohim has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. Daniel 2:45
The nations today follow the image of Babylon and tread under foot the Peace, Justice and Righteousness of HaMashiyach Y’shua, however the time is coming when a stone will be cut out of the Mountain of HaMashiyach without hands, which means YHWH will do this Himself. This stone will smite the governments and all civilizations on earth who choose rebellion and war against HaMashiyach, instead of oppression there will be Peace and Justice, man’s vanity will end and mankind will see and know the Image of Elohim within himself, the oppression of the weak will be no more. If any man desires to be the first he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.
Baruch Ben Daniel
