First let us put the whole picture together to understand we are like clay pitchers made by the potter and he may do with us what he likes. And in Lamentations he likens his precious sons of Zion to fine gold.
Lamentations 4:2 The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!
Exodus 25:39 Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.
Romans 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Jeremiah 18:2,3 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
Isaiah 29:16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
So with these examples we see that he likens his people to vessels and we have learned that he compares them to vessels of gold. Now let us look at how he uses his vessels and where these vessels are mentioned and their part in prophecy. (Please look at past studies on these vessels for more information on them)
And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god. And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes; Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans. 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.
Let us summarize the above quote. The certain children of Israel, the king’s seed and the princes…. All represent the 144,000. For they are all that …. They are the children of Israel, the seed of Abraham and the princes to be used by Yah in these last days as his royal priesthood. As we have studied in our previous study they come into the Wilderness — “little mountain city “ to be purified and made white and filled with oil, anointed with oil, feast on new wine, etc. This is where they have their sins blotted out and become without blemish. Here they become well favoured and skillful in all wisdom, cunning in knowledge, and understanding science. So that they might stand in the presence of the King, and teach the truth of the scriptures to the fruits they will bear in their service to the king. And the King, Yasha, appoints them a daily provision. This is in reference to the fact that they keep the daily (system of true worship) and they receive meat…. Which is Truth (the bread, or body of Messiah and wine truth of his blood system. They are nourished for three years. That at the end they may stand without spot or blemish or sin because they must be pure to stand at the end in front of the Throne of Yah.
The vessels of the Yah were brought into the treasure house of Yah.
This time of nourishing for three years is throughout the Bible, now being revealed through these prophecies that you are privileged to be studying today. Those who will not be taught about the Way to the little wilderness city experience will not be able to enter the kingdom. This is for the benefit of those who want to be purified and made white spoken of in Daniel 12 : 3-10. Where knowledge shall be increased!
Let us look at this with new eyes and see that these are the vessels of the 144 thousand that we have brought to view in past studies:
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.
The royal wine here is royal because it symbolizes Yah’s truth. Diverse from one another like the children of Yah are all diverse from one another. We go into this study of Esther here: (https://timesandlaws.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/leaving-the-cities-the-prophecy-of-the-latter-days/)
2 kings 4:3-6
Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few. And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full. So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out. And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.
This is the story where the woman asks for Elisha the prophets for a remedy to the debt collectors. Which is really a story bringing out the truth of the vessels of Yah, his golden vessels to be filled with oil in this prophetic 3- 3 and a half year period. Note it says borrow not a few. The 144 thousand are not a few. And Yah makes sure that they get every single vessel. That is comforting to know he will go search out every single vessel to be filled with oil. Are you being search out by this Message?
Let us go to the book of Jeremiah for still more understanding.
Jer. 28:3 Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of the LORD’S house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place, and carried them to Babylon:
We also learned in a previous study that two years of oil. We learn two days revive and third year raise up in Hosea 6 : 1-3. And we see here that the vessels had been taken from this place. The children of Jacob have been scattered and must be brought back into the service of the Yah Almighty. ( The original title for Ellen White’s book Prophets and Kings was The Captivity and Restoration of Israel)
Now to remember what we have learned in the past about the story of the 10 virgins. 5 wise, 5 foolish…. The five wise get the extra oil. The five foolish, no oil. No wisdom, no understanding, no knowledge. (Matt 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.)
Heb. 9: 19 – 22 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.
Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
This here in Hebrews alerts us that all the vessels of the ministry need the shedding of the blood and sprinkling…. This happens at this time, too. We saw this in the above quote of Daniel 1:2-5 where it mentions the daily provision of the meat and the wine…. The body and the blood to blot out transgression in the new and living way only being done on the true calendar feast days. ( Hebrews (9: 12, 22 and Heb. 10 :20) This is new to you who do not know about this system of blotting out our transgressions, this also happens in the wilderness. All these truths will be understood more fully. (You will no longer have the Tares – leadership of Tares telling you that certain things are no longer important, when Yah says… I change not)
He answered and said, A man that is called Yasha made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
This wilderness experience that we have been studying for the past month is a cleansing experience where the blind receive their sight. This is where you receive a washing. You must become like little children to enter the kingdom.
Matt 18: 1-10
At the same time came the disciples unto Yasha, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Yasha called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
Let us study Matthew 18 and understand it. The child in the midst of them is the prophet who is giving the prophecies at this time. A child because the person is not educated in a Theology school of the SDA/Jesuit higher education departments. Instead the unction of the Holy Spirit guides this child. (Like the child prophet Samuel, who hears the call of a Yah and obeys on the fourth calling: please read 1 Samuel Chapter 3 for the story of the child prophet Samuel…. Where the Holy Spirit has also guided on understanding in previous studies as well.) Next Yasha says you must be converted and become as a child. We know that children have no biases, they learn like sponges and accept what their Father tells them. They believe in Yasha. Now the the hundred and forty four thousand are called his little ones here. So the prophet is a child in the midst and the 144k– the little ones. And Yasha
will not tolerate that the little ones even be offended and we know that Revelation confirms what happens with the millstone.
Revelation 18: 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
These 144,000 are his special vessels and they are the children of the house of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They have a special purpose, they become vessels of gold once they are purified like gold. They are vessels of ministry and are all diverse from one another. May you be converted and enter the kingdom of Yah like little ones to be saved from Babylon and filled with his new wine.
2 Chronicles 9:20 And all the drinking vessels of king Solomon were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: none were of silver; it was not any thing accounted of in the days of Solomon.
1 Kings 10:21 And all king Solomon’s drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold; none were of silver: it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon.
(The forest of Lebanon directs us to the place in the wilderness where the flock of Sharon is fed in green pastures amidst cedar trees)
Ezra 1:11 All the vessels of gold and of silver were five thousand and four hundred. All these did Sheshbazzar bring up with them of the captivity that were brought up from Babylon unto Jerusalem.
May you go to the Potter’s house and may you be one of the vessels of fine gold to hold the oil and the wine of the King to be a Vessel of Ministry.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou annointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. Ps. 23: 5
Isaiah 64:4,8 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O YAH, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. But now, O Yah, thou art our father, we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
2 Cor. 2:6-13 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
He has wonderful things prepared for his children the vessels of his Ministry.
