Jesus Christ the Fiery Serpent

Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

Exodus 3:4
A picture of Christ as a Serpent, in Judgement of man, a Serpent

EXODUS{4:1} And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee. {4:2} And the LORD said unto him, What [is] that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. {4:3} And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. {4:4} And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand: {4:5} That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee

Moses a Picture of God

EXODUS{4:16} And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, [even] he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God.

EXODUS{7:1} And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.

EXODUS{7:8} And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {7:9} When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast [it] before Pharaoh, [and] it shall become a serpent. {7:10} And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. {7:11} Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. {7:12} For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.

COMMENTARY:

As you can see, from Exodus 4:16 and Exodus 7:1 Moses is a picture of God.

John{1:14} And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. The Word of God His Law!

Jesus is the Word of God, and this Word is the Bible, which is God's Law. Now a Kings carries a rod and this rod represents his Law. This King is God, represented by Moses. (Exodus 4:16, Exodus 7:1)So Aaron carries a ROD, which is a Picture of God's LAW. Jesus Christ is the Law of God made Flesh.(John 1:14) Aaron casts the rod which represents God's Law to the earth, ground. Jesus casted to the Earth becomes Man, Man is a Serpent, So as the rod, Christ, becomes a SERPENT, as the rod, the Law, comes to earth. Now jesus as a Serpent swallowed their rods. These rod which Jesus's swallowed as a serpent,represent Man's law. Showing it is God Law that shall over come man's law. As you can clearly see by these verses Jesus cast to earth is a Picture of a serpent. "THE FIERY FLY SERPENT"


I Corinthians {2:12} 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. {2:13} 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. {2:14} But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them,] because they are spiritually discerned. {2:15} But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. {2:16} For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

I Corinthians {14:37} If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

Matt.{10:16} Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. {10:17} But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; {10:18} And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. {10:19} But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. {10:20} For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

Matt.{10:16} Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Numbers21:6 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

Rev.4 The sardius stone points to God’s passion as manifest in redemption or judgment. The fire of God’s desire is the same as His zeal to judge or remove all that hinders love. God’s desire is shown forth both in redeeming or punishing sinners, depending on their response to Him through Jesus. God is a consuming fire which He defines as a jealous or zealous desire (burning passion). 24For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous (passionate) God. (Deut. 4:24) These colors are seen in the stones in the New Jerusalem and on the high priest’s breastplate.

REVELATIONS: 4 – FOUR BEASTS FULL OF EYES

In the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a Lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. ( All aspects of GOD) STANDARD: A figure or device of some kind elevated on a pole. It was used for some well-understood signal that was exhibited on the top of a pole from a bare mountain. (Isa13: 2) a banner. In Num. 21: 8-9 this word is used of the standard (“pole”) upon which the bronze serpent was placed. It was customary to give a defeated party a standard as a token of protection. (Isa. 11:12) The term degel is used to describe the standards that were given to each of the four divisions of Israelite army at the time of the Exodus (Num 1:52; 2:2-3) Num. 2 The four divisions were Judah, Reuben, Ephraim, and Dan Gen. 49:9 Judah is a Lion’s whelp. Reuben was a man. Gen. 30:14 On Ruben’s standard was a figure of a man decorated with mandrakes. Ephraim’s standard was the figure of an ox. Deu. 33:17 Dan’s standard was the figure of an eagle. The standard of the tribe of Dan was white and red and the crest upon it an eagle, the great foe of the serpent. Jacob had compared Dan to a serpent. Achiever substituted the eagle, the destroyer of the serpents. Now the first beast was like a lion (Judah) the second beast was like a calf (Ephraim) the third beast had the face of a man (Reuben) and the fourth beast was a flying eagle (Dan). These four beasts represent the four divisions of Israel, like the seven spirits of God are the seven candlesticks. They both had eyes all around them. And they were in the midst of the throne and around about the throne of God and the Lamb. I say the four beasts represent the Holy Spirit in the synagogues for the Jews as the seven Spirit of God represents the Holy Spirit in the church for the gentiles. I would also like to make the point that the serpent on the pole in Num. 21: 8-9 is a Standard. Remember at that time it was customary to give a defeated party, (the Israelites were bitten by the serpents) a standard a token of protection. Read Also Ezekiel 1 They are the same Holy Spirit bring judgment to Isreal at the end of the world in the great battle of Gog and Magog. This was the vision of Ezekiel by the river of Che-bar.

Luke 24:44: And he said unto them, "these are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning ME!"

Psalm 40:7... Then said I," Lo I come in the volume of the book it is written of me"

Christ Portrayed as a Fiery Serpent in Bible.:

John.3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: John.12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. (SEE ISAIAH 5:26 Christ is the ensign lifted up upon a pole, as a token of protection. )

Question, Why is this anology made? Why is Christ Portrayed as a Serpent? ( SERAPHIM representive of Christ Himself. As Isiah looked upon the seraphim his sin's were clensed by them as looking upon Christ.) Face of man: Christ was man, Face of ox: man is a beast. Face of Lion Christ comes as King, surprime Judge. Face of Eagle: Christ is God.

4 gospels
Line

Isiah 6: 1-8

Isia 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
6:2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face,( a token of humility )and with twain he covered his feet, ( a token of respect )and with twain he did fly.
6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the LORD of hosts: the whole earth [is] full of his glory. 6:4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
6:5 Then said I, Woe [is] me! for I am undone; because I [am] a man of unclean lips,( Isiah Here can not speak the Word of God, his lips are unclean )and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
{6:6} Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live (coal ( THE WORD OF GOD )in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:( JESUS ON THE ALTAR OF SACRIFICE){JESUS IS THE LIVE COAL, HE IS THE FIERY SERPENT THE WORD OF GOD}
6:7 And he laid [it] upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.( JESUS CHRIST PURGES OUR SINS: THE WORD OF GOD)
6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here [am] I; send me.

Numbers 21:5-9

(FIERY=JUDGEMENT=LAW )(GOD SENDS JUDGMENT ON THE PEOPLE )

21:5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for [there is] no bread, neither [is there any] water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.
21:6 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. (EXODUS {7:12} For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. These are the serpents that where among the people that bit them. A serpent is a Evil man that bring faults gospels and sin.) 21:7Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.
21:8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

"It was not a serpent, that was put on a pole but a saraph"

In numbers 21:8 the Kings James Bible uses the words FIERY SERPENT to represent that, that was to be set upon a pole. As we examine the words FIERY SERPENT in the Interlinear Bible we see the Jewish transalation for fiery serpent is saraph (saw-rawf'); from OT:8313; burning,saraph or symbolical creature (from their copper color): So, the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a Saraph and place it on a pole: and it shall come to pass,that every one that is bitten, when he looketh uponit, shall live.

Exodus {25:17} And thou shalt make a mercy seat [of] pure gold: two cubits and a half [shall be] the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. {25:18} And thou shalt make two cherubims [of] gold, [of] beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. {25:19} And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: [even] of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. {25:20} And the cherubim shall stretch forth [their] wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces [shall look] one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

Isia 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 6:2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face,( a token of humility )and with twain he covered his feet, ( a token of respect )and with twain he did fly. 6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the LORD of hosts: the whole earth [is] full of his glory. 6:4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 6:5 Then said I, Woe [is] me! for I am undone; because I [am] a man of unclean lips,( Isiah Here can not speak the Word of God, his lips are unclean )and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. {6:6} Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live (coal ( THE WORD OF GOD )in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:( JESUS ON THE ALTAR OF SACRIFICE){JESUS IS THE LIVE COAL, HE IS THE FIERY SERPENT THE WORD OF GOD} 6:7 And he laid [it] upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.( JESUS CHRIST PURGES OUR SINS: THE WORD OF GOD) 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here [am] I; send me.

The Saraph is a pictorial graphic of God's nature, and Christ came to earth having the glory of God, for His nature was of God's nature, I and the Father are one. It was Christ that was put on the pole, John.3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: John.12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. (SEE ISAIAH 5:26 Christ is the ensign lifted up upon a pole, as a token of protection. )

Exodus {7:10} And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. This casted down serpent is the FIERY SERPENT Jesus Christ

21:9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

John 3:14

( CHRIST =FIERY=JUDGEMENT=LAW=WORD OF GOD= MADE FLESH=CHRIST)
{3:14} And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

JESUS CHRIST

Isa 11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nation, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it shall live. It was customary to give a defeated party a standard ( ensign ) as a token of protection.Isa 5:26 The FIERY SERPENT was put on a pole as a standard ( ensign ) for the people as a token of protection!

Isaiah{11:10} And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek:

Isa.14:29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent . (Christ is born an then)
Is.14:30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safty. ( The believers, the first fruits shall eat the Word of God)

(And his fruit shall be a Fiery Flying serpent. The fruit ( Fiery Flying serpent) is of the serpent and the cockatrice is the fruit)(Christ is man and man is a serpent. Christ comes as a serpent)

Some may think, even those that sit as leaders in high places, that we can only relate the serpent to Satan. And it is Satan that is portrayed as the serpent. I say," Let those that have an ear hear what the scriptures have to say." For the evil man, shapens his tonge like a serpent; adders poison is under his lips. As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one. Man is a serpent.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil (wiser) than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.Before the fall of man a serpent was a wise beast and not evil.

Matthew10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. The Serpents wisdom here is NOT the the wisdom of Satan, but of a wise creation of God!

MAN AS A SERPENT

Matt 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. These are words spoken by God to the serpent after the fall of man. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed (sons of men are the seed of the serpent) and her seed is the church. Yes, man is a serpent and a beast.

Ec: 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

Ec: 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

Ecc. 3:20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

Ecc. 3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? Man, unless manifested by God cannot see, because of his vanity, that he is but a beasts.

Jer 8:17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD. These serpents are evil man, sent by God to bestow judgment on the people. Sometimes a serpent that brought judgment was calls a Fiery Serpent. A Fiery Serpent was a man that brought judgment, a Prophet.

Matt.10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Deut 8:15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;

Num 21:5-8 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. 6. And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. 7 .Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. 8. And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. 9. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. Here God breaks two of His own comments. Or did He? Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that isin the waters beneath the earth: Thou shalt have none other gods before me. But now in hindsight we can see just to Who He was pointing to in His request to make a serpent of brass and put it upon a pole. Another God, no. Jesus and the Father are one. Graven image, no. The serpent represented not what Christ looked like but His role in God’s salvation plan. As man ( serpent ) coming in judgment ( Fiery )

John.3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

John.12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

John. 12:33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.

John. 12:34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

Fire as judgment:

 

 

Gen. 19:24 24. Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

Deut.9:3 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.

Deut.13:16 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again.

2 Thess 1:7-9 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; God as Fire:

Heb. 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Deut.4:24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

Deu.9:3 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.

Ps. 89:46 How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire? Out of the Serpents ( man ) root:

Isa. 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

Isa.53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. Christ comes as sinful flesh ( serpent), yet He knew no sin.

Heb. 2:16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. 1Pe. 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Ro.8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Ga.1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: Christ had no sin, but we were rotten to the core. And all this sickness He took upon Himself. So He could put it all to death on our be haft.

1John.2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. Christ as Judge: ( Fiery )

2 Cor 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Heb 10:26-27 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Jude 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.


Christ as Fiery

Eze 1:26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above it.
Eze.1: 27And I saw the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of His loins even upward, and from the appearance of His loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of Fire, and it had brightness round about.

Ex 19:16-18

16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

Ex 24:17

17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

Deut 4:11-12

11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

12 And the Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.

Ezek 10:2-4

2 And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.

3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.

4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord's glory.

REV.{21:23} And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof.


TWO TYPES OF ALTARS

ONE CHRIST THE OTHER MAN

I. Classification of Hebrew Altars. - Before considering the Biblical texts attention must be drawn to the fact that these texts know of at least two kinds of altars which were so different in appearance that no contemporary could possibly confuse them. The first was an altar consisting of earth or unhewn stones. It had no fixed shape, but varied with the materials. It might consist of a rock (Judg 13:19) or a single large stone (1 Sam 14:33-35) or again a number of stones (1 Kings 18:31 f). It could have no horns, nor it would be impossible to give the stone horns without hewing it, nor would a heap of earth lend itself to the formation of horns. It could have no regular pattern for the same reason. On the other hand we meet with a group of passages that refer to altars of quite a different type. We read of horns, of fixed measurements, of a particular pattern, of bronze as the material. To bring home the difference more rapidly illustrations of the two types are given side by side. The first figure represents a cairn altar such as was in use in some other ancient religions. The second is a conjectural restoration of Hebrew altars of burnt offering and incense of the second kind.

Canaanite altars were constructed of earth, stone, or metal. Stone altars have been preserved in Israel. Their form ranges from unworked, detached rocks to carefully cut natural stone. Altars of earth are mentioned in the ancient records, but none have been preserved, with the possible exception of an Israelite altar at Arad. These were the simplest altars, probably built by the common people. ALTAR'S of earth were not eternal.


ALTAR OF SACRIFICE

JESUS CHRIST OUR BURNT OFFERING

Nah 1:3

3 The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. (FIRE IS PUT ON THE ALTAR_ ALTAR THE LORDS FEET_CLOUDS HIS GLORY)

ALTAR :English altar, alter, based on late Latin altar, altarium, from Latin altus ‘high.’

the table in a Christian church at which the bread and wine {JESUS CHRIST, ON THE ALTAR} are consecrated in communion services.
• a table or flat-topped block used as the focus for a religious ritual, especially for making sacrifices or offerings to a deity.

ALTER :change or cause to change in character or composition, typically in a comparatively small but significant way:

REV. {1:15} And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

ISIAH {6:6} Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live (coal ( THE WORD OF GOD )in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:( JESUS ON THE ALTAR OF SACRIFICE){JESUS IS THE LIVE COAL, HE IS THE FIERY SERPENT THE WORD OF GOD}

Ex 38:1-4 38 And he made the altar of burnt offering of shittim wood: five cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof; it was foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof. 2 And he made the horns thereof on the four corners of it; the horns thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with brass. 3 And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks, and the firepans: all the vessels thereof made he of brass. 4 And he made for the altar a brasen grate of network under the compass thereof beneath unto the midst of it. KJV1 Kings 8:64

I Kings 64 The same day did the king hallow the middle of the court that was before the house of the Lord: for there he offered burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings: because the brasen altar that was before the Lord was too little to receive the burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings.
KJV

2 Chron 4:1Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof.

Lev 6:13 The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.

Typology of the Hebrew Altars. The altar of burnt offering (bronze altar) is commonly thought to be a type of the cross upon which Christ, our whole burnt offering (Lev 1), offered Himself without blemish unto God (Heb 9:14), the brass speaking of divine judgment as in the bronze serpent (FIERY)(Num 21:9; John 3:14; 12:31-33). The altar of incense is a type of Christ our Intercessor (John 17:1-16; Heb 7:25), through whom our prayers and praises ascend to God (Heb 13:15; Rev 8:3-4) and, in turn, pictures the believer-priest's sacrifice of praise and worship (Heb 13:15).

The Hebrew word for altar means "a place of slaughter or sacrifice." But the altars of the Old Testament were not restricted to offerings of animals as sacrifices. Josh 22:26-29 indicates that altars were occasionally used to remind the Israelites of their heritage or to call attention to a major event. Sometimes an altar might even be used as a place for refuge (1 Kings 1:50-51; 2:28).

REV.{6:9} And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

During the days of Moses, two priestly altars assumed important roles in the ritual of the TABERNACLE in the wilderness. These were the altar of burnt offering and the altar of incense.

The altar of burnt offering (Ex 27:1-8) was placed in front of the entrance to the tabernacle (Ex 40:6), where it was used for the daily burnt offering and meal offering. This altar declared that entry into the presence of God must be preceded by sacrificial ATONEMENT for sin. The altar of burnt offering was made of acacia wood, overlaid with bronze. The corners of the altar extended at the top into projections that looked like horns.

The altar of incense (Ex 30:1-10) stood just before the veil inside the tabernacle that separated the most holy place from the rest of the worship area (Ex 40:26-27). Priests burned incense on this altar every day so its fragrance would fill the tabernacle when the sacrificial blood was sprinkled on the altar of burnt offering.

As the first king of Israel, Saul built an altar during his conquest of the Philistines for the sacrifice of sheep, oxen, and calves (1 Sam 14:35). Later David erected an altar on a threshing floor of natural stone that he bought from Araunah the Jebusite (2 Sam 24:15-25). This site became the central place of sacrifice in the TEMPLE after it was constructed by Solomon, David's son and successor. Some have identified this site with the large rock structure in the city of Jerusalem now seen under the famous mosque known as the Dome of the Rock.

After building the Temple in Jerusalem, Solomon constructed an altar (2 Chron 4:1) larger than the one Moses had built, probably adapting it to the size of the Temple. This was the altar restored later by King Asa (2 Chron 15:8). Still later, King Ahaz had Solomon's altar moved to the northern part of the Temple courtyard (2 Kings 16:14-15). This was also the same altar cleansed by Hezekiah (2 Chron 29:18) and rebuilt by Manasseh (2 Chron 33:16) at later times in Old Testament history.

The incense altar of the tabernacle was also replaced by Solomon's altar made of cedar and overlaid with gold (1 Kings 6:20,22; 7:48). Incense was burned every morning and evening on this altar. The priest also sprinkled the blood of a sacrificial animal on the incense altar to make atonement for his sins and the sins of the people. The incense altar was also symbolic of prayer. It is the only altar that appears in the heavenly temple (Isa 6:6; Rev 8:3).

When the captives returned to Jerusalem following their years of captivity in Babylon, one of their first acts was to build an altar (Ezra 3:3).

Altars in the New Testament. In addition to the Temple of the Jewish people with its altars, the New Testament refers to the altar in Athens that was dedicated "TO THE UNKNOWN GOD" (Acts 17:23). No physica1 Christian altar appears in the New Testament. The statement "we have an altar" (Heb 13:10) refers to the sacrifice of Christ. The altar of incense mentioned in Rev 8:3 belongs to the heavenly temple. In this heavenly temple there is no need for an altar of burnt offering since atonement for our sins is now complete through the death of Jesus Christ.




Hab 3:4-5

4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power. ( THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD)

5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. ( THE FEET REPRESENTS THE ALTAR)

Heb 12:29

29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Ps 50:3-6

3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.

4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.

5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.


God comes as Flying: ( Fiery Flying Serpent )

Zech 5:1-41 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. (Gal.3:10 This flying roll is the LAW( Jesus Christ)) 2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. 3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. 4 I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.


This roll is Christ, the FIERY FLYING SERPENT. Christ is the word of God.

Joh:1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh: 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. And this word is the Law of GOD!

Isa 31:5 5 As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem ; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it. As a flying bird God defends his people. Now read this next passage carefully:

Ps 18:6-17 6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. 7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. 8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. 9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. 10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. 13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. 14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. 16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. This curse spoken of in

Zechariah 5 1-4 is the LAW of God. Cutting off those that sin, and consume them as with fire. You see, the Godly aspect of the FIERY FLYING SERPENT is that portion of that name that portrays a heavenly being. The word flying. Only two places in the Bible is the word flying used between the two words fiery serpent.

Isa 30:6-9 6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from whence come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit them. 7 For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength is to sit still. 8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: 9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:

Matt 12:42 42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Matt 12:42 - Here, the Queen of the south,(Bride of Christ,that is why called Queen.) are the saved people of God. In Isa.30:6-9The beasts (man) of the south are the people of God, also, for the nation Israel enters into a land of trouble and anguish. The young and old lion are conquers of their prey.

Eze.32:2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations, and thou art as a whale in the seas: and thou camest forth with thy rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and fouledst their rivers. The viper is evil man.

Matt.3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Matt. 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

Matt. 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? The Fiery Flying Serpent, notice a serpent is a viper but listed separate here, in

Isa.30:6-9. Because this Fiery serpent is Christ Himself.

Ho.11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt . Israel is a picture of Christ here.

Matt.2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. The only other place that the word Flying is used between the words Fiery Serpent is:

Isaiah 14:29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

Isaiah{11:1} And there shall come forth a rod out of and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: {11:2} And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; {11:3} And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: {11:4} But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. {11:5} And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Serpent : By the serpent is here meant the sensuous part of man in which he trusts; by the wild animal of the field, here, as before, every affection of the external man; by the woman, man's Own; by the serpent's saying, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree? that they began to doubt. The subject here treated of is the third posterity of the Most Ancient Church, which began not to believe in things revealed unless they saw and felt that they were so. Their first state, that it was one of doubt, is described in this and in the next following verse. from AC 195. The most ancient people did not compare all things in man to beasts and birds, but so denominated them; and this their customary manner of speaking remained even in the Ancient Church after the flood, and was preserved among the prophets. The sensuous things in man they called serpents, because as serpents live close to the earth, so sensuous things are those next the body. Hence also reasonings concerning the mysteries of faith, founded on the evidence of the senses, were called by them the poison of a serpent, and the reasoners themselves serpents; and because such persons reason much from sensuous, that is, from visible things (such as are things terrestrial, corporeal, mundane, and natural), it is said that the serpent was more subtle than any wild animal of the field.

"SINS AGANIST A HOLY GOD; SINS AGAINST HIS RIGHTEOUS LAW; SINS AGAINST, HIS LOVE , HIS BLOOD; SINS AGAINST HIS NAME, HIS CAUSE; SINS IMMENSE AS THE SEA- FROM THEM ALL HE CLEANSETH ME!"

What are the CHERUBIM?

CHERUBIM cher-bim, cheroo-bim [Hebr. k®rû»îm (sing. k®rû»° ), perhaps related to Akk. kar¥bu — 'intercessor']; AV CHERUBIMS. Winged creatures of a suprahuman variety, occasionally mentioned in the OT. They appear as guardians of the tree of life (Gen 3:24) and as the vehicle by which God traversed the heavens (2 Sam 22:11; Ps 18:10 [MT :11 ]). In the latter references, however, the writer parallels the image of "cherub" by that of the "wings of the wind," perhaps merely a poetic description of swift passage in which the storm-winds have been personified in terms of familiar Mesopotamian and Canaanite iconography.

The ark of the covenant had a gold cherub of beaten work placed at each end in such a manner that their outstretched wings covered the mercy seat (NEB "cover") as they faced one another (Ex 25:18-20; 37:6-9). When Moses entered the tent of meeting to commune with God, the divine message came from between the two cherubim (Num 7:89). Cherubim were also woven into the fabric of the tabernacle and the veil (Ex 26:1,31; 36:8,35).

The "CHERUBIM" guarded the TREE OF LIFE.

Genesis {3:24} So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

In a highly complex vision experienced by Ezekiel (1:4-28), four winged living creatures were accompanied everywhere by wheels that were "full of eyes all round" (NEB Ezek 1:18). Although the text nowhere states that these creatures were actually cherubim, this has been inferred from a comparable vision in 10, where most translations follow the LXX as against the MT in reading a plural form of the term cherub. In the first vision these agents' only divine service was reflecting God's glorious presence, but in the second they were stationed at the right side of the temple entrance, filling the inner court and its precincts with the sound of their beating wings. These beings also were attended by wheels, and when the divine glory moved the cherubim accompanied it, ultimately halting at the east gateway of the temple (10:19). Their functions, particularly in divine worship, seemed less direct than those of the SERAPHIM of Isaiah's vision (cf. Isa 6:1-8). The cherubim of Ex 25:18-22 appear to have provided with their wings a visible pedestal for God's invisible throne (cf. 1 Sam 4:4; 2 Sam 6:2; Ps 80:1; etc.). Such activity was apparently implicit in Ezekiel's vision, in which the throne of God that was upheld by the cherubim became highly mobile. The duties of cherubim as guardians were again reflected in the ode on the fall of the king of Tyre (Ezek 28:11-23), where the parallel with man's decline from pristine grace is evident.

Revelation{21:23} And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof.

North Syrian iconic practice was amply reflected in the decor of Solomon's temple, which was constructed along contemporary lines by Phoenician craftsmen. Cherubim were prominent in a decorative frieze which was carved around the walls, while the inner sanctuary was dominated by two huge cherubim made from olivewood and plated with gold leaf (1 Kings 6:23-29; 2 Chron 3:10-14; 5:7-9). Their height and wingspan were both about 15 ft. (4.5 m.), and when assembled they covered one whole wall. Cherubim also formed part of the decorative motif on the bronze basins that were used for ritual ablutions (1 Kings 7:27-39). The extent to which the Solomonic temple was indebted to Phoenician religious theory and practice has been made evident by archeological discoveries. Excavations have revealed that in Canaanite temples a winged sphinx was a popular iconic element, and the Hebrew cherubim as fashioned by Phoenician (i.e., Canaanite) craftsmen may well have been intended to represent such creatures rather than the cherubim of the tabernacle period.

Artistic representations of cherubim have been recovered from several Near Eastern sites including Taanach, Carchemish, Tell Halal', and Aleppo. Particularly fine examples came from Nimrod, where an ivory panel depicted two winged, sphinx-like creatures standing back to back, and also from Samaria, where cherubim were represented in considerable detail on ivory panels. These showed a figure with a human face, a four-legged animal body, and two large wings. At Gebal (Byblos) excavators recovered a carving of two cherubim supporting the throne of King Hiram of Gebal (ca. 1200 B.C.) and presumably guarding the monarch from danger. Symbolic winged beings were a regular feature of Near Eastern mythology and architecture alike. Statues of winged bulls (Akk. š¢du )

and lions were stationed at the entrances of important public buildings in Assyria and Babylonia to afford magical protection for the structures and their contents. Among the Hittites the griffin was a popular mythological creature, an amalgam of lion, eagle, and sphinx.

Ezekiel's visions appear to reflect primarily the re-actions of a mystic personality to the Babylonian statuary and, despite the complex descriptions, furnish little understanding of the nature and appearance of cherubim. More difficult to comprehend are the suprahuman beings of Gen 3:24, since that material issues from a back-ground of Sumerian historiography. Although winged creatures were represented in Sumerian literature, as in the vision of the pious Gudea of Lagash, they were not portrayed artistically in the Assyrian fashion.

The most that can be said with certainty is that in Scripture the cherubim were celestial beings whose duty in the heavenly hierarchy apparently was to guard and protect. Although they were closely associated with the personage and will of God, there is no indication that they were in any sense ethical or moral beings or that they performed functions analagous to those of the seraphim.

Zechariah{4:9} The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. {4:10} For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel [with] those seven; they [are] the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth. {4:11} Then answered I, and said unto him, What [are] these two olive trees upon the right [side] of the candlestick and upon the left [side] thereof? {4:12} And I answered again, and said unto him, What [be these] two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden [oil] out of themselves? {4:13} And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these [be?] And I said, No, my lord. {4:14} Then said he, These [are] the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth. ( They are standing on either side of the candlestick protecting the tree of Life.)

Jesus Christ was a SERAPH. (FIERY SERPENT.)

Numbers {21:8} And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, ( SERAPH ) and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. {21:9} And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

John {3:14} And as Moses lifted up the serpent ( SERAPH )in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: {3:15} That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Exodus{25:18} And thou shalt make two cherubims [of] gold, [of] beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. {25:19} And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: [even] of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. {25:20} And the cherubim shall stretch forth [their] wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces [shall look] one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. {25:21} And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. {25:22} And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which [are] upon the ark of the testimony, of all [things] which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

There where four Cherubim in the HOLY OF HOLYS. Two on the mercy seat and two standing at each wall.

1 Kings 6:27 And he set the cherubims within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubims, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst of the house. KJV

2 Chron 3:11-12 11 And the wings of the cherubims were twenty cubits long: one wing of the one cherub was five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing was likewise five cubits, reaching to the wing of the other cherub. 12 And one wing of the other cherub was five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing was five cubits also, joining to the wing of the other cherub. KJV

Ezra 2: 59-60 There were 652 belonging to the clans of Delaiah, Tobiah, and Nekoda who returned from the towns of Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Cherub, Addan, and Immer; but they could not prove that they were descendants of Israelites. GNT

Ezek 9:3-4 3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side; 4 And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. KJV

Ezek 10: 2 And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight. KJV

Ps 18:10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. KJV

Ezek 10:4-5 4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord's glory. 5 And the sound of the cherubims' wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh. KJV

Revelation {21:23} And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof. "Christ is a Cherub"

{21:23} And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof.

Palestina, gentiles, told by God ,”Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina.” All of you. Meaning some are elect, and some are not. So if you are not of the elect of God rejoice not, for you are still under the Law. Because the rod ( Rod an instrument used by Kings to represent ruling, authority, and Law. See Isa. 11:1 Who is the rod.) of Him that smote thee ( The Law condemns those that are under it) is broken ( Is broken because Jesus Christ’s body is broken for our sins. And we the Elect of God are no longer under the Law.): for out of the serpent’s root See Isa. 11:1 and a Branch shall grow out of his roots( Man is a serpent, and Christ comes out of the root of Jesse.) shall come forth a cockatrice ( A FIERYSERPENT) and his ( Jesse’s) fruit shall be a Fiery Flying Serpent. ( Judging, Godly, Man) And this man is Jesus Christ Himself. Coming in judgement!
