Leaving the Cities (The Prophecy of the Latter Days)

Leaving The Cities to The Country of Goshen : One Clear place of settled glory

Let my People Go:

2 Chronicles 6:37  Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly;

Those that sigh and cry against the abominations done in the congregations and in the land must have a place to go.  They are to flee the cities and go to the country.  As in the prophecy of the Exodus tells us.  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. I Cor. 10:11(Read the whole chapter it tells of Moses and the exodus experience: they had the Tabernacle of the Old Covenant and we have the Tabernacle of the NEW COVENANT)

As with the prophecy of the Exodus Sister White told us to leave the cities and go to the country.  What country?  Look at the type for the answer:

And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Yah in the midst of the earth.  Exodus 8:22  (Earth in prophecy is the United States)

Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail. Exodus 9:26

And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children’s children, and thy flock, and thy herds, and all that thou hast Gen. 45:10

And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.  Gen 46:28

Exodus 2:22,23  And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for the said, I have been a stranger in a strange land. And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died; and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto Yah by reason of bondage.

That ye shall say, Thy servants’ trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.  Gen. 46:34 At this time you can look in your Bible map to locate where is the land of Goshen in Egypt?  It is in the middle (midst)  of the country of Egypt.

Isaiah 11:11, 16 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Yah shall set his hand again the SECOND TIME to recover the remnant of his people…. And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

Exodus 2:22,23 And she bare him a son and he called his name Gersom for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.  And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried and their cry came up unto Yah by reason of bondage. And Yah heard their groaning, and Yah remembered his COVENANT, with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

I have a message for the meek His sheep, they  hear his voice.

Isaiah 61:1  The Spirit of the Yah Yil is upon me; because the Yah hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;  To proclaim the acceptable year of the Yah, and the day of vengeance of our Yil, to comfort all that mourn;  To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, that garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness: that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Yah, that he might be glorified.  And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. But ye shall be named the Priest of the Yah: men shall call you the Ministers of our Yah: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.  Isaiah 61: 1-4, 6


The captives are to be set free to go to the land of Goshen, that their sins be blotted out, for to be the virgins, the 144,000 without guile in their mouth, to sing the Song of Moses and the lamb, they need a time, of deep cleansing, purification, transformation, restoration…. so that they may be a royal priesthood saviors, they will have a time of refreshing, to be fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army of banners.

In the time of trouble we all fled from the cities and villages, but were pursued by the wicked, who entered the houses of the saints with a sword. They raised the sword to kill us, but it broke, and fell as powerless as a straw. Then we all cried day and night for deliverance, and the cry came up before YAH. The sun came up, and the moon stood still. The streams ceased to flow. Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. But there was one clear place of settled glory, whence came the voice of God like many waters, which shook the heavens and the earth. {RH July 21, 1851}

Ask yourself where is this one clear place of settled glory?  What is glory?

The truth and the glory of Yah are inseparable; it is impossible for us, with the Bible within our reach, to honor Yil by erroneous opinions.  {SOP 416}

So this one clear place of settled glory has Truth.  You need the Oil of Truth for your lamp.  Because we know the extra oil is truth,  :When he the spirit of the truth comes he will guide you into all truth.  It is a lamp unto your path.  So you need oil for your path.  This place has truth so that you may get the extra oil and have a lamp to make it to the wedding.  And of course you need a clean garment, washed in the blood.

The time is now to realize that the prophecies are true.  And he has a message of Mercy to those that will hear. His sheep hear his voice. You have been held captive by the Egyptians, you were scattered, you were a foreigner in a strange land. You are an Israelite and its time for your special experience.
Different periods in the history of the church have each been marked by the development of some special truth, adapted to the necessities of the people of Yah at that time. {Spirit of Prophecy 427.3}
The Yah (LORD) gives a special truth for the people in an EMERGENCY . Who dare refuse to publish it? He commands his servants to present the last invitation of mercy to the world.  They cannot remain silent, except at the peril of their souls.  Messiahs ambassadors have nothing to do with consequences. {SOP 428}
This is your last invitation of mercy.

What we need in this time of the end is an EXPERIENCE which we do not now possess:

The time of trouble such as never was, is soon to open upon us; and we shall need an experience which we do not now possess, and which many are to indolent to obtain. {SOP 440}

The reason we do not now possess it is because it happens in the land he tells you to go to…. to learn how to blot out your sins, and change your filthy rags and understand his ways… you can possess it… at the appointed time.  He has it on his time.


I encourage every one to study the time of Jacob’s trouble in the Spirit of Prophecy p 432-439.

Now Jacob goes through an experience of wrestling with Yah… his only hope was in the Mercy of Yah.


“Jacob remains alone to intercede with Yah.  He confesses his sin, and gratefully acknowledges the mercy of Yah toward him, while with deep humiliation he pleads The Covenant made with His Fathers.  The crisis in his life has come; everything is at stake…..In the darkness (midnight).  He thinks that an enemy is seeking his life, and with all the energy of despair he wrestles with his assailant.  As the day begins to break, the stranger puts forth his superhuman power; at his touch the strong man seems paralyzed, and he falls, a helpless, weeping suppliant, upon the neck of his mysterious antagonist.  Jacob knows now that is the Angel of the Covenant with whom he has been in conflict….. He must have the assurance that it is pardoned.” (his sin) SOP Vol 4 p 433, 434.


Have you been keeping the Covenant?  Do you know what the covenant is?  Do you want assurance that your sins have been blotted out?


He has a plan of mercy… because surely we do not deserve it…. but he does it because of your fathers… who he loved.  Those that kept the covenant… now you must keep the covenant.  And he is opening up the place of Truth…. where you can learn how to be a partaker of the covenant.  He is going to give you your heart transplant, there.  In a settled place of glory …. in the midst of tribulation, when those who want to kill the children of the covenant, cannot reach you.  Because he has made  a way for you in the wilderness.

And the Saviour promises… “I will keep thee from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the world.”  {SOP 436}  Just like in the first Exodus… he has a place of safety… for you to dwell.

Daniel 9:4 Says: But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

In the Time of the End many shall be purified and made white and tried.

Daniel 12: 8-10:  “And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my master, what shall be the end of these things?  And  he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end
Many shall be purified, and and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand.”
Many?  how many?  Many more than 144,000, but few are chosen…. 144,000.  Many are called and FEW are CHOSEN.  For you who stand on the Scriptures and the scriptures only.  You are being called. You who are meek and can say…. I need this purifying…. I need the Truth…. I do not understand all the scriptures…. can I go to this place of glory… of truth…. this place of CLEANSING?
He has a message of Mercy to you.  Who is Yah like unto thee, that Pardoneth Iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighted in mercy.
  “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.  Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou has sworn unto our fathers from the days of old. “Micah 7: 19,20

So are you his sheep?  Do you need a plan?  He has a rescue and restoration plan… a plan to teach you his covenant, and blot out your sins.  Because you need a cleaning.

There is also meaning in this verse: “And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.” Daniel 1:5.  This shows us also this time of nourishing for the 144,000 in this experience.  For these are virgins in a three year period of drinking the kings wine.  So that they might be able to stand before the King without spot or wrinkle or sin or blemish!  This is what we are talking about in this land of Goshen.


Where else does he mention this cleansing for his Virgins…. the five wise virgins that get the oil, are you in need of the extra oil?


You are His flock,  He has to clean you up,  The 144,000 are Virgins in need PURIFICATION.

Did you know the Song of Solomon is prophecy: about this experience it is  his song to you his Virgin. Please read the whole book of Song of Solomon, I will put some verses here for you to see that this is talking of a cleansing and purification of his church the virgins.  Then we will see that in the story of Esther there is also a purification.  These two books are talking of the same purification of the virgins.  The 144,000 for we know they are virgins…. because they have been purified in this wilderness experience.  Let us now look at some verses in Song of Solomon:


Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee.  —- He pours his oil on his virgins.

Draw me,  we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee.—— He brings you into his chambers.


I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, —– you are a daughter.


Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon; —– you are his flock, he is going to feed  you real food, not corn husks, no more  cakes of dung ( Ezek. 4: 12)mixed with error.


I have compared thee, O my love , to a company of horses  in Pharoh’s chariots.


Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green——- green pastures, food… new truth… that satisfies his sheep.


The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir.—– a hint that where he is taking you has cedar trees.


I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.—-  This tells you you are Yasharon… a flock from the forth fold, which is a symbol of Israel.


As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons.  I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.  — the apple of his eye.



I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem,—- thats you his flock.


Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant?—-  The 144,ooo after their purification and education of the ways of Yah are like pillars of smoke, the have been infused with the Holy Spirit on Pentecoste and their words are like fire! They have been annointed with myrrh and frankincense like Yasha, because they become Saviours of the world. These  ointments are for your beautification, restoration, and cleansing.


Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.


Thou art all fair, my love there is no spot in thee.— been made spot free, by the blotting out of sins according to the times and laws of the covenant.


Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse….


How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse, …. and the smell of thine ointments than all spices.


A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.— these are the streams of purification… fountains opened for sin and uncleanness… you will be healed here.


Zechariah 13:1 In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness. (Zechariah is another latter day prophecy)


Thou are beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners.– We know the 144,000 become an army all in unity and in step, they all believe and proclaim the song of Moses.


Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them.—The sheep need the purification experience of the covenant….


There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number.  Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners.

Let us look at this passage with new eyes:

But the people were not yet ready to meet their Lord. There was still a work of preparation to be accomplished for them. Light was to be given, directing their minds to the temple of God in heaven; and as they should by faith follow their High Priest in His ministration there, new duties would be revealed. Another message of warning and instruction was to be given to the church. {CIHS 102.3}
Says the prophet: “Who may abide the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth? for He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: and He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.” Malachi 3:2, 3. Those who are living upon the earth when the intercession of Messiah shall cease in the sanctuary above are to stand in the sight of a holy Yah without a mediator. Their robes must be spotless, their characters must be purified from sin by the blood of sprinkling. Through the grace of Yah and their own diligent effort they must be conquerors in the battle with evil. While the investigative judgment is going forward in heaven, while the sins of penitent believers are being removed from the sanctuary, there is to be a special work of purification, of putting away of sin, among Yah’s people upon earth. This work is more clearly presented in the messages of Revelation 14.{CIHS 103.1}
When this work shall have been accomplished, the followers of Messiah will be ready for His appearing. “Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Master, as in the days of old, and as in former years.” Malachi 3:4. Then the church which our Master at His coming is to receive to Himself will be a “glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.Ephesians 5:27. Then she will look “forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners.Song of Solomon 6:10.{CIHS 103.2}



Where else can you see this Prophecy of Cleansing Experience? Please read in your Bibles …. and open your eyes… remove the film… Use the eyesalve of the Father’s Spirit… so that new truth can reach your heart.  Be meek… and see this story with new skins…. or your wine skins will burst. Please refresh your memory on putting new wine in old skins.

Let us Read Esther 1: 1-20 to see the experience the 144,000 virgins, the bride of Yasha:

“Now it came to pass in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces:)

2 That in those days, when the king Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace,

3 In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him:

4 When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days.

5 And when these days were expired, the king made a feast unto all the people that were present in Shushan the palace, both unto great and small, seven days, in the court of the garden of the king’s palace;

7 And they gave them drink in vessels of gold, (the vessels being diverse one from another,) and royal wine in abundance, according to the state of the king.

8 And the drinking was according to the law; none did compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man’s pleasure.

9 Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus.

10 On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven chamberlains that served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king,

11 To bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: for she was fair to look on.

12 But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s commandment by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him.

13 Then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king’s manner toward all that knew law and judgment:

14 And the next unto him was Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan, the seven princes of Persia and Media, which saw the king’s face, and which sat the first in the kingdom;)

15 What shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king Ahasuerus by the chamberlains?

16 And Memucan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen hath not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the people that are in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus.

17 For this deed of the queen shall come abroad unto all women, so that they shall despise their husbands in their eyes, when it shall be reported, The king Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not.

18 Likewise shall the ladies of Persia and Media say this day unto all the king’s princes, which have heard of the deed of the queen. Thus shall there arise too much contempt and wrath.

19 If it please the king, let there go a royal commandment from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Persians and the Medes, that it be not altered, That Vashti come no more before king Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal estate unto another that is better than she.

20 And when the king’s decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all his empire, (for it is great,) all the wives shall give to their husbands honour, both to great and small.

21 And the saying pleased the king and the princes; and the king did according to the word of Memucan:

22 For he sent letters into all the king’s provinces, into every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and that it should be published according to the language of every people.”


Lets see this Esther gathering of virgins…. Now this is a prophecy where the King (this King indicates our Saviour— remember this is a prophecy… with symbols) asks his wife to come and show her beauty.  And she refuses.  It says he had drank wine in vessels of gold, the vessels of gold being diverse from another and royal wine in abundance.  Well you need to know that wine here indicates truth.  Because we know that false truth is wine of fornication.  And that the harlot in Revelation has this wine of fornication… it is not truth… they went after strange doctrines… doctrines of devils, from the hellish torch of Satan.  This says royal wine in abundance…. Many truths and many vessels…. each vessel different.  And these vessels carry the wine.  Are you a vessel to be used by the king to carry new wine? (To the great multitude of people who are thirsty?)  But here he asks his wife to shew her beauty for she was fair to look on.  But the queen refused to come… so his wife, his church, refused to come.  This is a prophecy for our day…. The church refused to come!!!! So when his church refused to come…. his wise men, which knew the times, for so was the king’s manner toward all that knew law and judgement.  Being wise is here defined as someone who knows the Times and Laws of Judgement, so these wise men of Yah know the statutes, the Law of Moses and the Feast Days. These wise men say you need to get a new wife who will do what you say.  ( I know you did not see this before…. but it is opening up … here in the time of the end…. as Daniel says.)

These wise men say what shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king.  We see here revealed that according to the law… this church, this wife…. did not perform or do according to the Law.  This is the church of Laodecea…. spued out!  Because there are laws that she did not keep.  This wife did not keep the law,  and the king has to publish in all the land that he is looking for a new wife.  Someone who will do the law that his wife did not previously do.

Vashti represents the church who does not perform the commandment of the Yah.

What does Yasha say is the law according to putting away a wife… in this case a church?

Let us look to what Yasha says about putting away a wife in Matthew 19:7-11. “They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.  His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.  But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.”

So here Yasha says because of the hardness of your heart. Those who have a hardness of heart will not keep the law of Moses.  And they commit adultery by keeping the law of another, because they do not keep Yah’s appointments they have another one who they follow. They have committed fornication.  They have united with another god.

Back to Esther…. the wise men say if you do not spue out your wife…. then all the other wives (churches) will feel like they can disobey your laws too.  Remember these wise chancellors knew the times and laws, hence they were elders in the Law of Moses and they knew the feast days, this is what makes one wise.


So it is published to call for Virgins to find a wife for the king.  Esther 2:8 — So it came to pass, when the kings princes say to the king, ” Let the king give her royal estate unto another that is  better than she.” ( Esther 1:19.) This is the call to the 144,000 virgins to come to a place of cleansing and purification just like in the case of the prophecy of Esther.


“Then let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the fair young virgins. And let their things for purification be given them.”


This is the gathering of the Virgins…


“So it came to pass, when the king’s commandment and his decree was heard, and when many maidens were gathered together unto Shushan the palace, to the custody of Hegai, that Esther was brought also unto the king’s house, to the custody of Hegai, keeper of the women.  And the maiden pleased him; and he speedily gave her her things for purification, with such things as belonged to her, “(Esther 2: 8,9).


Here in this prophecy we see that a purification needs to take place for these Virgins. These virgins come for three years to gather to be cleansed and purified to become gold vessels for his service.  Please read the chapters in Esther to fully understand this.


Now this is the culmination of this wonderful study:


The 23rd Psalm is a prophecy for this time of Purification in the land of Goshen in the latter day where his sheep gain their victory and they get their seal.


Let us read together.


The Yasha is my shepherd; I shall not want.  (He will provide my every need in this pasture of Goshen)


He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth  me beside the still waters.  —green pastures…. plenty of food, water—– to cleanse my garments,  a fountain for cleansing.


He restoreth my soul; —– he restores our bodies and souls to perfection.


He leadeth  me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  ( righteousness… doing his laws and times)… for his names sake…. not because we did anything.


Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death ( in the world in these last days… Satan is trying to get at this people)


I will fear no evil; for thou art with me;—– he is there with us in the cloud of covering by day, and wall of fire by night.


Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  (His laws, his covenant)


Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies,—- the evil ones are after us in this time.


Thou annointest my head with oil….. oil of cleansing truth, oil of beauty!!! He annoints you to heal you, and he annoints you for your service….. you are about to go out and save the great multitude!!! With the truth you just received!!!!


My cup runneth over.    Halleluiah, Halleluiah!!!!


Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Yah FOR EVER !!!


Now all these three places in the Bible agree that there is a purification of virgins…. Esther, Song of Solomon, and Psalms 23.  All these sheep need a washing and purification away from the valley of shadow of death that is occuring in these last days, Yah brings them into the wilderness for this experience.  He knows that they need a new understanding a fresh look at truths, because oil is truth, they need this oil to continue on and to take these truths to the whole world, because they will be used by Yah to serve his people.
