I cried out to the Father, the Most High God, "Just Give Me The Truth!"
by Sherry Shriner
sounding the alarm on what was, is, and is to come
To my knowledge, the work I've done to uncover the secret messages hidden within the pages of the Song of Solomon in the Tanach (Old Testament) is original. Neither I nor anyone I've spoken with about this subject has ever heard or read anything such as this before. Father YHWH has led me to this understanding to shed light on the deception that is destroying His Bride and leading her to hell in a cleverly-woven handbasket called Pauline Christianity. It's time for her to discover who she really is, as her identity has been stolen from her, and to wake up to her role in ushering in the Kingdom of YHWH, her husband.
The Bride must understand that there has, indeed been a concerted, purposeful and secret agenda working against her for two thousand years or more and that the ones pulling the strings, stealing her blessing and keeping her in bondage, for the most part are the actual, literal genetic decendants of Satan. The Bible says it very clearly in Genesis 3:15 for instance, as well as many other places. The problem is that those members of the Bride who most desparately need to hear this information, for their freedom and eternal salvation, are steeped within Pauline protestantism and the resulting deception has been very damaging to their ability to actually hear YHWH's truth when it is spoken. It is time for the Bride to wake up and be receptive to the Spirit of YHWH that is already being poured out on her for this purpose.
One of the key steps necessary for the Bride to come out of her spiritual stupor is to realize, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that her true identity has been stolen from her. She must not only understand this, but recognize as well, the ones who have stolen her identity and have turned things upside down, (Isaiah 29:16) preventing her from accepting her birthright and responsibility in ushering in the kingdom of YHWH, her husband. Just as Yashua states, very clearly, these people are of their father the devil who was a liar and a murderer from the beginning. They lie, because their father is a liar. It is genetic. Those who continue to believe the lie that Salvation comes by simple faith and that it has nothing to do with genetics or obedience to the Law of YHWH, I've got some startling news for you; According to scripture, you are deceived and therefore, wrong and there is no way to sweeten it up . . . unless of course you add in a slice of Pauline pie.
I've included chapter two of my book below. I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to contact me at any time at Author@BlueprintForBondage.com YHWH bless you!
Solomon's Secret Song
It's always been a very curious thing to me how the Bride of Yashua so easily dismisses the possibility for hidden or underlying meanings contained in the scripture, reserved for a select few, (as if it was an unspoken sin to entertain such an elitist thought) yet readily embraces the idea that Yashua used these very same methods with every message He gave.
Every time we open the scriptures containing Yashua's messages to the people, we see, if we are looking, that they are full of underlying teachings; many of which are more important for our day and age than the overt message that is readily noticeable. These messages are called parables. We have all heard this term, but what actually is a parable? A parable is defined as a proverb (1) Sam.
10:12; 24:13; 2 Chr. 7:20), (2) a prophetic utterance (Num.23:7, Ezek.20:49), or (3) an enigmatic saying (Ps. 78:2; Prov. 1:6).9
Yashua, as we see in Matt. 13:34 never spoke to the multitudes or masses without speaking in parables; All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables, and without a parable spake he not unto them. Then, in that same chapter in verse 36, we see Yashua sending the multitude away and going into the house (behind closed doors, in private) to explain to those closest to Him, His disciples, the underlying or esoteric meaning behind His enigmatic story.
Why did Yashua speak in parables? Why didn't he simply speak in a straightforward manner without the shroud of secrecy covering his words? After all, that is what a parable does; doesn't it . cover the real meaning? There must have been a reason for this or He would not have done it. Let's see if we can discover what this reason may have been.
In Matthew 13:10, Yashua's disciples come to him and ask Him, Why do you speak to them in parables?And Yashua then answers them and says in verse 11 Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.He then states more specifically in verses 13, 14 and 15, . I speak to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which says, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive;For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed. So here we have another answer to the question as to why Yashua spoke in parables. He spoke in parables so thatonly those who had ears to hear would hear.
This answer still leaves at least two other questions unanswered, however. Firstly, Why are only some people able to hear, after all, isn't the gospel message for everyone? And secondly, Why did Yashua not just make it plain for everyone to hear, instead of those who were able to discern the deeper, esoteric and spiritual meaning? The answers to these two questions are rapidly forthcoming.
As we delve into a message left to us by one of the wisest men to ever live. We will see that Yashua did not have the market cornered, so to speak, on delivering esoteric messages. Scripture is full of them.So it is with the story in the Garden in Eden (and many other stories in scripture) and Solomon knew this full well.
Solomon in chapter 4 verses 12-15 and chapter 5 verses 1-3 of the Song of Solomon, paints for us the following metaphoric picture. (Keeping in mind that Adam and Eve, according to the creation story, had not yet had sexual relations, see if you can uncover any similarities between Solomon's metaphoric story and the story of Eve's beguilement.)
Solomon begins his description in verse 12:A garden enclosed (barred) is my sister, my spouse (betrothed or engaged or to be married), a spring shut up (barred), with a fountain sealed. 13: Thy plants are an orchard (literally paradise) of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, henna and cypress (as a plant and tree) with spikenard. 14: Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon with all trees of frankincense, myrrh and aloes and with all the chief spices (literally spice plants). 15: With a fountain of gardens, a well ofliving waters, and streams from Lebanon. 16: Awake, Oh north wind and come thou south; blow upon my garden that the spices thereof may blow out. Let my beloved (male) come into his garden and eat his pleasant fruits. Chapter 5:1 then reads: 1: I am come into my garden, my sister my spouse (betrothed) I am gathering my myrrh with my spice, I am eating my honeycomb with my honey, I am drinking my wine with my milk. Eat O' friends (plural) drink ye, drink abundantly, O beloved. (Showing someone who is speaking to them who is looking on and encouraging them to continue in this behavior.)
Did you notice the metaphors? Did you see the obvious references to sexuality as it relates to the Garden, specifically the trees, springs and fruits of the Garden? The symbolism here, as it correlates to Eden, is as evident as the page in front of you, if you are able to see it. It breaks down as follows: The Sister/Spouse/Betrothed is depicted as a barred (forbidden) garden and a spring and a fountain (Eden had its own water supply - Genesis 2:10 and Eve was yet a virgin, therefore the reference is obvious.) Her orchard in verse 13, also called a paradise (Eden is known as a paradise in the Septuagint - the Greek translation of the Old Testament), has pleasant fruits. Herspices in verse 14 are literally called spice plants in Hebrew (as plants in a garden, literally in the Hebrew). Verse 15 depicts her (the garden) as having a well of living water (as in the Garden in Eden and in a woman's yet untouched womb). Verse 15: awake Oh north wind (heavenly or upwards) and come thou south (as a created being or man - the significance of which we will soon see) blow upon my garden, let my beloved come into his garden and eat his pleasant fruits (of sexuality). Chapter five then shows that someone else is watching and encouraging this behavior when it says: Eat (fruit) Oh friends, (plural) drink abundantly Oh beloved (plural). This, of course would be Satan (the shining one or Nachash (Nawkawsh)) watching Adam and Eve now defiling themselves with lust by partaking of his handiwork, and defiling YHWH's perfect plan in the process.
With the help of the Song of Solomon, it is becoming quite apparent that the sin in the Garden of Eden had nothing at all to do with the eating of an apple or any other literal fruit. This is not to say that the Garden in Eden and the things associated with it, were not real, however, YHWH, through his impeccable symbolism is telling us a story.
To understand what has happened, (since many reading this will believe that YHWH certainly did, because of His words in Genesis chapter 1 verse 28 expect Adam and Eve to reproduce) it is imperative to first understand what had taken place prior to the creation of Adam and Eve, for they were not alone on the earth.
Prior to the creation of Adam in chapter 2 verse 7, we see what seems to be the entire creation story rendered in chapter 1. Most members of the Bride of Yashua have falsely been taught that Adam was created in verse 27 of chapter 1. However, this does not seem to be the case. And, it cannot be for a couple very important reasons that we can begin to see when we review these accounts in the original language. First, it says in chapter 1 verse 27 that God created male and female at the same time. In verse 27 we read: So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. At first glance, there seems to be no problem with this statement in Genesis, for it sounds simple enough. God created them, right? Well, if this is the same creation account that we read in chapter 2 of Genesis, there are two problems with this version, that is, if it is the same creation.
First of all, the name(s) of the creators are entirely different. That's right. Although translated God in our adulterated English versions, there are two entirely different names of the creators in chapters 1 and 2.
In the first account, the name for the creator is the Hebrew word Elohiym meaning literally gods, rulers or divine ones.10In the second chapter of Genesis, where Adam and Eve were created separately, as individuals, the word used for the creator is Jehovah (YHWH) which means The One Supreme God.11 Why the difference? After all, we're taught there is one and onlyone God, right? Well, after closer observation, it becomes obvious, that many of the Bride's preconceived ideas, due to what she has been taught, (especially of creation), are completely false. And this apparent predicament of creation cannot be explained away by designating Yashua and the Holy Spirit as co-creators with YHWH, as parts of the trinity. Yashua and the Holy Spirit are considered parts of the trinity with YHWH only, and therefore could not have been partakers in the creation of mankind in chapter 1 of Genesis. YHWH (Jehovah) was the creator in chapter 2.
This issue is one of the cornerstones upon which the confusion of the Bride's identity has been built, and cannot be relegated to the unseen dust of untouchable heresies under the rigid rug of doctrine simply because it may be offensive to someone's beliefs. It must be discussed for the liberation of the Bride! She has suffered long enough as to her identity. It is time for her to take back the name of her husband and the birthright that is rightfully hers. She was created after mankind, (just as Eve was created after the man, Adam), and was set apart for a specific purpose as the precious Bride of YHWH, and no other god.
Now, of all the creatures that YHWH had made, Adam and Eve had not yet been told to reproduce and be fruitful and multiply. Therefore, YHWH said to Adam whom he put in charge, do not eat of it, for in the day you do, you shall surely die. YHWH is speaking here of the fruit of sexuality. Eve's garden was not to be touched yet by Adam in any way, or vice versa. There was no reason for them to reproduce at this point. For further support for this idea we can read in chapters 2:7, 3:5, 8:4 and several other places in the Song of Solomon the same words over and over, as if the writer was trying to make a point through repetition; I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem . . . that ye stir not up nor awake my love till he please. In other words, it would appear that YHWH, for whatever reason, had not yet wanted Adam and Eve to reproduce, and Satan knew this.
Satan, having already corrupted man's mind and emotions has now engaged in the literal adulteration of the body and hence the most precious relationship of all, marriage. This story literally depicts the first case of infidelity.
Satan's goal was to genetically corrupt or splinter the perfect seed (bloodline) of God's creation; and that is exactly what he did. Disguised as the Nachash or serpent (Revelation 12:9) (which has been a long-time phallic symbol) Lucifer seduced Eve by bringing attention to and offering her the forbidden fruit of sexuality. Once she saw it and lusted after it, she ate of it by having intercourse withtheSerpent, or Nachash.
Having been enticed by Satan with the forbidden fruit of sexuality, Eve had sexual intercourse with Satan, just like the Sons of YHWH (fallen angels) mated with the daughters of man later, in Genesis 6:4. Eve then gave it to (also had sex with) Adam, as Lucifer watched on and encouraged it, as was pointed out earlier from the Song of Solomon, chapter 5 verse 1; Eat O friends, drink abundantly O beloved.
Although most pastors in an attempt to argue against what has happened here, (one must ask why such an adamant defense?) will use Genesis 4:1 which states:And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. As much as the tares (Satan's seed, children) have tried to conceal their genetic origins and their father's identity, by covering up the original rendering of this passage, (and many others), YHWH in his foresight and wisdom has revealed Himself and confirmed His truth elsewhere, as He always does for those willing to seek.
We can read of this same story in the Aramaic Targum, pseudo-Jonathan, which shows us that Genesis 4:1 has obviously been tampered with at some point by these evil infiltrators. (Jude v. 4) It should actually be read as follows; And Adam knew his wife Eve, who was pregnant by Sammael (Satan), and she conceived and bare Cain, and he was like the heavenly beings, and not like the earthly beings, and she said, I have gotten a man from the angel of the Lord.12 Lest there be any doubt in the readers mind as to the identity of Sammael in this passage, we read in The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, according to Jewish theology. the destroyer or angel of death appears under the name Sammael (i.e. the poison of God), who was once an arch-angel before the throne of God, and who caused the serpent to tempt Eve. According to Weber, he is not to be distinguished from Satan.13
These and other aberrations of our nearly worshipped King James translation of the Bible are not surprising however, as there has been a concerted effort to thwart the purposes of YHWH throughout scripture. This situation is no different. The Holy Scriptures of YHWH seem to be vulnerable to these evil men's tactics, just as are his people.
We can read where YHWH warns us of such an infiltration, when we read in Jude verse 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares (secretly), who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness (literally unbridled lust, as in the garden), and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
For further support of this idea of Biblical tampering, we read Sir Thomas Moore's words in reference to Tyndale, in theJournal of English and Germanic Philology, (Tyndale) was guilty of intentionally mistranslating the Bible.14And Tyndale's translations were one thing that eventually led to his death at the stake!15
Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, in their book entitled The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception also support this idea of deception and tampering by saying, There is virtually unanimous agreement among all the concerned parties . that the history of Dead Sea Scroll scholarship does constitute a scandal. And there would seem to be little doubt that something irregular. lurks behind the delays, the procrastinations, the equivocation, the restrictions on material.16
(The sited references are not isolated opinions by any means. If one were to study this subject for even a short period of time, it would become quickly apparent that they were in good company with many well-known and respected theologians and religious researchers over the years who have viewed the intentional adulteration of the scriptures as common knowledge. It is time that the Bride wakes up to this fact and protects herself from its intended effects. This is one of the main reasons for this book.)
After their sin, Adam and Eve knew they were naked and were cast out of the garden (paradise or presence of God.) Eve is told that YHWH will multiply her sorrow in childbirth and her desire would be for her husband who would rule over her. Therefore her entire curse was based on sex and her womb/seed.
Adam was told that because he listened to her and ate of the tree (had sex) that the ground (also symbolic of a woman's womb) would be cursed and he would eat of it (have sex / reap what he has sown, via his own seed and actions) in sorrow (arguing, fighting, striving and having to contend with the seed that had been sown in Eve's womb) all the days of his life. He was also told it would bring forth thistles / thorns (tares) and that he was to eat of the herb of the field (as mankind in Genesis 1:29).
We see here, that both Adam's and Eve's curses were sexual in nature. The question must therefore be asked, why would their curses be sexual in nature unless their sin was sexual in nature as well? YHWH's punishment always fits the sin.
To add even more support to this idea, the first time that the word knew is used it is in reference to their eyes being opened after eating the fruit (having sexual relations) in Genesis 3:7. The very next time it is used is in direct reference to sexual intercourse. Genesis 4:1 says; And Adam knew Eve, his wife and she conceived and bare Cain. She goes on to bare Abel in verse 2. What is interesting here, however is that the word knew is used only one time and there are two children born. (The explanation for which we have seen previously from the Aramaic Targum - Pseudo Jonathan.) Later in verse 25 of the same chapter, the word knew is used once and there is only one reference to a child, Seth.
We can deduce, therefore, that Eve was known once by the Nachash or Serpent and once by Adam, her husband. Further supporting this idea is the fact that beginning in Genesis 5:1, Cain is not mentioned in the lineage of Adam. He was apparently not Adam's seed, but of another, as we read in I John 3:12: Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one and slew his brother. Also in John 8:44 we read: Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar and the FATHER of it. What was the first lie ever spoken? Ye shall not surely die. Who spoke it? Satan, the serpent did when he spoke to Eve and became the father of lies. Who was the first person murdered in the Bible? Abel. Who killed him? Cain, his brother, who was of that wicked one. (I John 3:12.)
If there still remain any doubts in your mind because of the clouds of mainstream religious indoctrination, as to who the father of Cain was, or as to the tree being used as a metaphor of sexuality, we simply need to look elsewhere in scripture to verify these facts, as with any other truth of YHWH's word. There are many places which tell of these same truths.
In I John 3:12 we read, Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother.
Let's look at some other translations to see how they express the words of this verse:
The New Testament in Modern English: We are none of us to have the spirit of Cain, who was a son of the devil.
Living Bible: We are not to be like Cain, who belonged to Satan.
New English Bible: .unlike Cain who was a child of the evil one..
New Century Bible: Do not be like Cain who belonged to the Evil One.
New Jerusalem Bible: .not to be like Cain, who was from the Evil One.
There are even many Bible commentaries, which say the same thing:
The Wycliffe Bible Commentary page 1473: He (Cain) is said to have belonged to the family of the wicked one.
Matthew Poole's Commentary on the Holy Bible, volume 3, page 936. Which showed him (Cain) to be of that wicked one, of the serpent's seed: so early was such seed sown, and so ancient the enmity between seed and seed.
Matthew Henry's Commentary, volume 6 page 1077: It showed that he (Cain) was as the firstborn of the serpent's seed.
And, once again, In John 8:44 we hear Jesus speaking to the Pharisees and proclaiming, Ye are of your father the devil.
The term of meaning literally, generation or offspring17, once again adds verification to the fact that Cain, just like the Pharisees, was the physical, literal seed of his father the devil.
In regards to the tree being used as a metaphor for sexuality, we must realize that this is a common literary tool used throughout the entire Bible. Here are some examples.
Proverbs 3:18 states, And she is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, and happy is everyone that retaineth her.
Proverbs 11:30 says, The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life.
It would seem that Matthew was familiar with the tree references as well, for his book is full of this metaphor:
Mat 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruitgood; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
It should be obvious at this point of the symbolism used in Genesis, as its significance to what has happened.
In his attempt to adulterate the bloodline of YHWH, Lucifer impregnated Eve before Adam even had a chance to consummate his relationship with his beautiful virgin wife, who had given herself over (in every sense of the word) to another (shining, as in copper 18 or gold or silver) god. I will cover the great significance and symbolism of this situation more, later.
Maintaining the secret knowledge of this adultery in Eden is one of the key components that has allowed the current power structure to maintain its satanic stranglehold on the Bride. For, by keeping this genealogical secret, those who rule by evil, ungodly means have not only maintained their false identity (crucial for that purpose) and blinded the Bride to her own identity, but they have also taken on the identity of the Bride in the process, giving her another identity, altogether.
I had stated earlier that I would get back to Yashua's statements about judging one's brother who has a particle of dust in his eye, when you've got a beam in your own. Incidentally, the word beam is the word dokes in the Greek,which means a piece of timber and literally means actively holding up19(therefore onto) this timber. This begs the question, can a tree not stand on its own if it is indeed a tree? We can therefore read this passage (in relation to someone who interprets the tree of the knowledge of good and evil literally, and reacts harshly against (judges) another who understands the symbolism behind this story) as follows: Why do you judge so harshly your brother who understands the truth, that Satan splintered and adulterated YHWH's perfect creation for his own purposes, when you, yourself refuse to let go of (or stop holding up or onto) the false teaching that this tree (timber) was literal? Let go of the false teachings that blind you spiritually (ie. get rid of the religious trees or doctrines in your eye) so that you can see clearly, spiritually and therefore help your brother who has specs of sin in his own life.
Yashua makes it clear that continuing in blinding religious doctrines or teachings is an extremely dangerous sin, due to the deceit it fosters, and must be proactively and intentionally done away with by the individual themselves before they are able to understand anything of depth, spiritually.
After all this, it is still necessary to clarify one thing; was Satan's attempt to corrupt the bloodline of Yashua also successful, like his attempt to corrupt the mind and emotions? Yes, and no. He was able to propagate his own literal progeny or seed, here on earth through Cain, however, he was not able to adulterate the actual bloodline of Yashua.
Satan's actual children are literally living, to this day among YHWH's true Israelite People all around the world; masquerading as members of the Bride of Yashua. How do we know this to be the case?
In Matthew chapter 13:24-30, Jesus speaks a parable to his disciples. This is what he says: Another parable he put forth unto them saying, the kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while men slept (remember in the Song of Solomon, chapter 4:16 where it says awake Oh north wind?) his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So, the servants of the householder said to Him, sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? He said unto them; an enemy hath done this! The servants said unto him; wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said; nay, lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat also with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers; gather ye together first the tares, and bind them into bundles and burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.
Yashua's disciples, in verses 36 - 43 of the same chapter, ask Him to expound on His parable. After He sent the multitudes away, He took the disciples into the house behind closed doors to explain the parable and fulfill what it says in Matthew 13:35; that it might be revealed which was spoken by the prophet, saying: I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
Christ goes on to explain to his disciples in Matthew 13:37: He that soweth the good seed is the Son of Man (Christ), the field is the world, the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the wicked one. The enemy that sowed them is the Devil (serpent), the harvest is the end of the world and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the end of the world (age).For him who has (spiritual) ears to hear, let him hear.
Having the knowledge that Satan has literally sired his progeny here on the earth, through Cain, and knowing what havoc they have wreaked on the Bride (which we will also look at later), we must ask ourselves the obvious question; why did YHWH not kill Cain instead of letting him live? Was YHWH not justified in taking Cain's life, according to His own Law, just as Cain took Abel's? Of course He was. And, under other circumstances, YHWH would have done this, just as He's done many times throughout scripture. There was a problem, however in this particular situation, and Satan knew this.
Under YHWH's law, as stated in Exodus 13:13, Exodus 34:20 and Numbers 18:15, a firstborn human male must be redeemed. Cain, being the firstborn son, therefore, had to be redeemed and Satan knew this. YHWH, choosing to do the next best thing, then chose to put an identifying mark on Cain (Genesis 4:15b; And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.)
Satan knows YHWH's law, and it is imperative for the Bride of Yashua to understand this. He even quoted it to Yashua in Matthew 4:6 where we read, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in [their] hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.(Psalm 91:11 and 12.)
Attempting to use YHWH's law against Him has been a tool implemented by Satan many times throughout scripture, because, as we will soon see, the law of YHWH (and the Bride's obedience to it) is paramount in the ushering in of YHWH's kingdom, through his remnant here on earth; an issue we will soon explore.
