God and Kisses of the Bramble, is a lesson to learn, an understanding to be knowledgeable about.
Psa 2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Psa 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Psa 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
The Lord God has allowed man to choose. Even in this choosing, the Lord God loves us. As we consider his omnipotence in our affairs, let us consider the bramble. For this newsletter, the bramble will be a metaphor and a type. The bramble is defined as “any variety of rough thorny shrub or vine.” This defines many a bush that is pushed about by our winds here in Wyoming. Many of these have short stout thorns that when you try to pick them up can hurt. Many years ago as a young man hunting near our family farm in Riverview we had many such brambles. These became nests of places where rodents, rabbits, and even deer [if the bramble were large enough] would hide out.
I remember many a time trying to peak through the gun sight into the myriad of brambles and thorns to find a target. Most of the time these nests were natural habitats that protected wildlife from game hunters. Even a good dog might have a tough time going up against wild game in such close quarters. In short the bramble and its kiss was something that you never forgot.
The only good method to remove these nests of thorns and hard vines and shrubs was with gloves. The only method to dispose of them was by fire. In a short time the dry brittle, thorny nests would be roaring and very hot. But in a very little while the fire died down. The trouble was the fuel was not a hard wood or coal to burn hot BTU’s but dry stuff that was virtually no good. These were the offspring of the summers weeds and shrubs that would dry up and end their life as tumble weeds on the prairies of Wyoming. They bore no fruit, were not green, were not lush, provided no useful human help whatsoever to the landscape. Nevertheless, in the wild domain these provided shelter to the wildlife, and I might add a momentary shelter at that. They did not make good long term shelter except to a few small rodents.
I write of this today because of the “kisses of the bramble.” If you were kissed by these brambles, the results would be punctures, scrapes, scratches, and a lesson to wear gloves. The lesson of the bramble is one which reminds me of the end times in which we live. First though, let me set the stage for the rest of the expose.
In psalms chapter 2 and verse twelve it reads as follows “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.” I find this Psalm so to the point in regard to the times we live in. But as I do find it so, I realize that over decades and millennia nations and peoples have been advised to do the same. The context of this Psalm points directly to the Father who has made a decree, “thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.” This is in regards to Son ship and in this we find God the Father has a Son. The words of this Son ship go back to the promise the Prophet Nathan relayed to David. This is the Davidic covenant and Nathan said to David that he would “sleep with his Fathers” and the “Lord would set up his seed after him”. This seed would proceed after his bowels and the seed of David would establish his kingdom. Furthermore, it says this seed would “build a house” for the Father and thus the Father would “stablish the throne of his kingdom forever”. Then it says “I will be his father and he shall be my son.” In regards to the promise and to the very words in Psalm chapter two and 2 Samuel chapter seven, Keil and Delitsch say this:
David, with reference to his own anointing, and at the same time with the promise of everlasting dominion, receives the witness of the eternal Son ship to which Jahve has appointed the seed of David in relation to Himself as Father, so that David and his seed can say to Jahve: “Thou art my Father”, and Jahve can say to the Son “Thou art my Son.”
The fact that our Lord and Savior Jesus [Yeshua] came in his Father’s name is testament to who he was, is, and always will be. Yet in this we find the angel Gabriel being sent to a virgin espoused to a man of the house of David. The man was Joseph and the virgin was Mary. The arrival and proclamation would fulfill the prophecies spoken of the Prophets regarding the house of David.
Luk 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
Luk 1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Now in all this we find scriptures in the Tanakh speaking directly of God’s son and a prophecy of his kingdom never coming to an end.
Psa 89:26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
Psa 89:27 Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
Psa 89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
Psa 89:29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
When speaking of himself, Jesus said this:
Joh_8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
This again gives a picture that the Son was much more than a recent proclamation to Prophets given to David. The Son was before Abraham. The Son of God was also in the beginning of Creation as John spoke in Chapter one. Paul also speaks of the Son in Colossians regarding these things. Take note below, read them well. Let the words sink into your spirit. The world and the religious, especially the lukewarm carnal church tries to play down the Word of God on the Son of God and who he is.
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
This point is so important that many have missed the mark today. Many embrace both the idea and concept of a Jesus Christ who fulfills both Islam and Christianity, called Chrislam. This is an abomination. The churches and pastors, with all leaders who purvey these lies will find the wrath of God upon them. Others, again in the religious and Christian realm downplay the virgin birth, the eternal nature of Christ, and the fact that he was and is and has always been the Son of God. They downplay his nature of both man and God. They reject his Word as eternal and unbreakable. Yet these stand in the nations as representatives of our God and his Christ.
Moreover, Psalms chapter two not only insists that our Father and God has a Son, but has appointed him to rule. He will dash in pieces all enemies. Therefore the LORD instructs all kings and judges to be instructed. They are to “be wise now, be instructed.” The instruction is to “serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.” They are to “kiss the son lest he is angry and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.” The kiss here is paying homage as in the example below of Samuel when he anointed Saul to be king.
1Sa 10:1 Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the LORD hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?
Yet to say a mere human kiss is enough to do homage to this Son would be an understatement. Samuel kissed with affection and anointed with oil, a symbol of the Spirit of God. God’s love poured out of Samuel for the Anointed of God. Thus paying homage with affection and the love of God, he kissed Saul. Here we need to understand that to truly “kiss the son”; it needs to come out of a heart born again of the Spirit of God. This brings you into a life of love, obedience, and fervor for the Son of God. This means loving him more than your life. It is the Son of God who is that cornerstone of redemption for all men. We according to Revelation chapter twelve are to “love not our lives unto the death” as we give our “word of testimony” as to the Son of God who is the “lamb”, the Passover sacrifice, the atoning sacrifice who by his blood redeemed those who he was sacrificed for. Thus we believe upon him and the redemption through the Lamb of God. This friends is more than a mere kiss of homage paid to a higher power or one of more rank. This is true agape love of those redeemed for their redeemer.
Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
You see today we have many religious ‘brambles’ that are blown about by this wind of doctrine or by that. These ‘brambles’ are pushed into one congregation and under one pastor only to be blown to the next one. This is the religious experience in many westernized churches today. Not to mention the ‘brambles’ which inhabit churches as pastors and teach doctrines that are offensive and damnable as well. The church ‘brambles’ are dangerous but still some find shelter in them. They are a safe shelter or so they think, that is until the fire comes. Then those ‘brambles’ will burn and incinerate all within them. There is a fire coming and this fire will purge all ‘brambles’ out of the Son’s kingdom. There is no room there for such ‘brambles’. ‘Brambles’ are likened to the vines which bear no fruit, even though, they have been pruned by the Father; then are cast into the fire because no fruit appears. It takes those who will follow the Son a direct connection, one that you abide in continually. You are in him, he in you. You abide in him; you abide in his words, keeping his commandments. Yet many today are as these ‘brambles’, blown by winds of doctrine, deceit, false prophets, and their own lusts. They are not abiding in Christ and what is more, they have not a clue as to “keeping his commandments”, which the Son says is paramount as well. The test here says our Lord is “if ye keep my commandments ye shall abide in my love.”
Joh_15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
Joh 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
Joh 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
In spite of these words many today have not a clue as to their meaning. The churches and pastors for millennia have been watering down Gods word. They have denied in truth the need to keep any of the commandments. These in fact have turned themselves and those who follow their teachings into another religion and another Son of God. The Son of God many churches teach is one that is gentile, white, and has replaced Israel. The Son of God these people teach doesn’t keep the Feasts of the LORD, nor do they understand them. The Son of God is Jewish, the early church was Jewish, the Apostles were Jewish, and today the Jewish foundations of our faith have been conveniently removed by men and women who hate them. If they hate the Jewishness of the faith they will not like heaven. It is a faith of both Jew and Gentile, but the foundation is Jewish. Through the Line of David and the House of Judah this has come to the glory of God the Father. It is given to the Jew first then to the Gentile. It is where the Son of God will unite both Jew and gentile. Male and female will be all one in Christ. We don’t replace the Jewish heritage; we embrace it and our Savior. Gentile pride has gotten in the way. It is time to wake to these facts. They also teach that ‘holiness’ is out and you can sin and enable grace to work. Therefore as Paul says mockingly:
Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Rom 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Rom 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
It is vital that you as a believer and follower understand these truths today. Don’t be like a ‘bramble’ and give the Son of God a kiss. These kisses of the ‘bramble’ are carnal and secular; they are religious and come from the mouth service of a lukewarm church. In truth you will never get to Kiss the Son, for the fire of the Son of God will burn up all those ‘brambles’ who come before him with such mouth service. These are dry unfruitful branches that have no love or understanding. They are ever learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. May the Lord God wake up these who need waking up. May the Lord God stir the fires of his Children for what lies ahead.
