Pamphlet 1766 Figtree kc 6-1

Who are the kenites of the house of Hemath?

It has been 55 years since the May 15, 1948 planting of the fig tree in the land of Judea!
That means that the eldest members of the final generation,
the generation that will "not pass away"
until all prophecies leading up to the return of Christ are fulfilled, are 55 years old.

In our last study
we learned the horticulture of certain varieties of figs
and discovered that there really are both "good and edible figs" (Smyrna figs)
as well as "bad and inedible figs" (Capri figs),
which are sometimes called "goat" figs.

Let us now go to the 24th chapter of Jeremiah
and see where our Father uses these two types of figs symbolically
to show Jeremiah (and us) that there are "two separate peoples" of Judah!

Jeremiah 24:1 The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.
Two different baskets of figs were set before the "temple of the LORD"
which is in Jerusalem in the land of Judea!

Keep this in mind because we are going to go to the New Testament
and see Jesus Christ go into that temple of the LORD
and overthrow the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of them who sell "doves"!

He shall even cleanse the temple, the house of God,
and cast out the bad figs.

Now notice the distinction between the contents of the two baskets (vessels):

[2] One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
The LORD will now ask Jeremiah what he sees.

Why do you suppose He asks him?

To show us that those whom "He sends forth" in these last days
can tell the difference between good and bad figs,
not the literal fruit itself (oh ye apple and snake believers),
but those good and bad people who are represented symbolically by the good and bad figs!

Here is the question:

[3] Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
The Hebrew "ra" is translated into the three English words "naughty", "bad", and "evil" in this chapter.
H7451 ‡ ˆ ra€ ra€ah rah,raw-aw'
From H7489; bad or (as noun) evil (naturally or morally). This includes the second (feminine) form; as adjective or noun:—adversity, affliction, bad, calamity, + displease (-ure), distress, evil ([-favouredness], man, thing), + exceedingly, X great, grief (-vous), harm, heavy, hurt (-ful), ill (favoured), + mark, mischief, (-vous), misery, naught (-ty), noisome, + not please, sad (-ly), sore, sorrow, trouble, vex, wicked (-ly, -ness, one), worse (-st) wretchedness, wrong. [Including feminine ra’ah; as adjective or noun.]
"Ra" is a fitting adjective for "bad" figs since they do "afflict" our people. That is because we have allowed them to enter in!
Amos 6:14 But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the LORD the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness.
Yes, we have allowed the kenites,
the sons of Cain,
to enter into our house and take over,
both naturally and spiritually,
the former being the manifestation of the latter if you have understanding.

For instance, they entered into the storehouse of our treasury on Dec. 24th, 1913,
and have now consumed away the wealth of Jacob and stripped bare the vineyard.

By the way, the phrase "unto the river of the wilderness"
is an expression in Hebrew that means "all the way to the river's end"
as in "all the way unto the end of this age",
meaning right up to the return of Jesus Christ when He shall wither that bad fig tree
for a thousand years before it is bound and cast into the lake of fire
to be consumed away forever, i.e. perish.

Jeremiah 24:4 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
We are now going to learn who the good and the bad figs represent.

You must "see' that they are both named of Judah!

[5] Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.
The good figs are the children of Judah who were taken captive
and followed the path of the house of Israel over the Caucasus Mountains
and into the isles of the west.

Note: We remind you once again that if you do not know where the "Lost" tribes of the House of Israel reside today go to  pamphlet  1064 "Israel's Lost Tribes"

[6] For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
This is yet future and will occur at the "planting of the Lord" (Isa. 61:3)
when Jesus Christ, the true "Branch" returns to Jerusalem.
[7] And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
They certainly have NOT yet returned to the LORD their God with their whole heart,
have they?

Now what of the "evil figs" which cannot be eaten?

[8] And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt:
The evil figs are the "residue of Jerusalem"
who are mixed in with Judah.

Remember we read how the "Nethinim" worked their way into the temple
to eventually sit in the seat of Moses?

[9] And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
The word "deliver" is "nathan" in Hebrew
which means to be of service
and it is the prime root of the word "Nethinim" which means "given to service".

They became the scribes for the House of Israel,
remember (1 Chron. 2:55)?

Nevertheless the residue of Jerusalem,
who are the kenites of the house of Hemath,
have fulfilled verse nine throughout history,
and if you are a student of history you know that every monarchy of Europe
at one time or another has ousted them.

However, in these last days they have become a taunt and curse
to "all the kingdoms of earth" in bringing forth the beast of Rev. 13:1, i.e. the New World Order.

It should also be pointed out that the phrase "to be removed into" means
"to be tossed to and fro among" (see note in the Companion Bible).

Of course we know who their leader (father) is
who likes to go "to and fro" and "up and down" in the earth!

Job 2:2 "And the LORD said unto Satan,
From whence comest thou?

And Satan answered the LORD, and said,
From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it."

All one needs to do is listen to the "traditions of men"
and he or she will be "tossed to and fro" (confused) along with them.

God's elect are not "tossed to and fro"
because they adhere strictly to His Word and BELIEVE HIM,
not preachers and ministers.

The majority of those "who come in the name of Christ"
actually eat bad fruit and therefore deceive our people
by passing it along to our people (Mat. 24:5).

Here is Paul speaking of the strength of God's elect who know His Word:

Ephes. 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
So the bad figs have become a taunt and a curse to all nations in these last days.
Jer 24:10 And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.
In fact, they are responsible for carrying the sword,
the famine,
and the pestilence,
for they fulfill the negative part of the Plan of God.

That is why we in this final generation who know who the "tares" are
have been instructed to leave them alone (Mat. 13;29)
and let them grow along with the wheat until harvest time!

Then their toxic fruit shall appear evident to all
and they shall be consumed from off the land by the reapers,
who are the angels, who are the children of God, i.e. His saints.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
