Angels: Yom Kipur, lamb to the fallen angel ...! Part 3 of 4 - Jephthah's daughter: the vow

The vow

During this war, Jephthah (Hebrews 11:32) sacrifices his daughter because of a promise he made to God.
30 And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD: “If you give the Ammonites into my hands, 31 whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the LORD’s, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”
Judges 11:30-31 (NIV)

What does biblical scripture say about vows made to God?
2 When a man makes a vow to the LORD or takes an oath to obligate himself by a pledge, he must not break his word but must do everything he said.
Numbers 30:2

And what came out of his home, when he returned home?
34 When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of timbrels! She was an only child. Except for her he had neither son nor daughter. 35 When he saw her, he tore his clothes and cried, “Oh no, my daughter! You have brought me down and I am devastated. I have made a vow to the LORD that I cannot break.”
Judges 11:34-35

God did not ask for this vow nor sacrifice, for he was already with Jephthah in the war as is written:
29 Then the Spirit of the LORD came on Jephthah. He crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from there he advanced against the Ammonites.
Judges 11:29


And God did provide in his law rules that could have been applied this situation caused by a vow that went wrong, Leviticus 27:1-8.:
1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If anyone makes a special vow to dedicate a person to the LORD by giving the equivalent value, ...
Jephthah probably did not know about these laws at the time. Or, he did not have the means to comply to them. One could ask, why not? Others could have told him. But he was surrounded by people who didn't like him, actually his family hated him, Judges 11:2-3a. And they must have been frustrated to say the least, because they lost face at leadership. For the leadership went to the one they rejected instead of them. But those who did, Judges 11:3b, possibly didn't know neither, or couldn't help him.

What was the attitude of Jephthah's daughter? She choose to abide by the vow her father made to God, Judges 11:36-39:
36 “My father,” she replied, “you have given your word to the LORD. Do to me just as you promised, now that the LORD has avenged you of your enemies, the Ammonites. 37 But grant me this one request,” she said. “Give me two months to roam the hills and weep with my friends, because I will never marry.” 
38 “You may go,” he said. And he let her go for two months. ... 39 After the two months, she returned to her father, and he did to her as he had vowed. And she was a virgin.  ...

Is this sending of this other lamb to the dessert, meant as a bribe for Azazel? Like Yeshua Messiah was for Satan, compare Job 1,2. Satan - not Azazel whom is already imprisoned, but in the end times will be set free for a short while - the accuser of mankind at work, and in future time cast out of the heavens, Revelation 12:7-10. He talks about destruction, while God speaks of faith and protection. Or Azazel, those who does his bidding, wanted something from Jephthah's daughter and could not get it? Maybe both.
I believe all this must also have something to do with the wrong doings of Azazel himself, for the lamb is send to him. He thought technology which combined with occultism led to the ruin of mankind, and  ultimately it led to destruction.

What did the fallen angels do in the past? Genesis 6:1-2 (NKJV):
1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

The fallen angels did this once, so why shouldn't they try again? Only this time, in our time something is different. When the fallen angels are resisted they will force some one, for they always pick who ever they want, 1 Enoch chapters 7,8 and 11:3. But in our time we have Yeshua Messiah, so this evil can be resisted effectively unlike in the time before him. But what if in spite of that, they persist on having who they want for what they want? For they are lawless and full of lies so not to be trusted. Then, is when the use and abuse of technology combined with the occult comes in. They have done this before in a different way. But now, if some one resist them they'll do it by accessing the  s e e d  of the woman itself. Nowadays there is technology to do just that. Even not noticed by her, for evil also works through many lies and deceit. God the Almighty Father has his servants, human beings who live by his will. But sadly, so does the fallen angels.

Remember God's words, Genesis 3:15 (NKJV):
15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her S e e d;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.

Revelation chapter 12 to 13:1 makes clear that the hunt for the seed of the woman is still on (reed: Revelation 12:a woman for real?):
4 ... And the dragon stood before the  w o m a n  who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. ... 17 And the dragon was  e n r a g e d  with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Is it, because something went wrong with the plans of the fallen angels that what is mentioned in Revelation 12 occurs? And how could we possibly know, or notice when this lamb is sent into the dessert or when it dies?
