Angels: Yom Kipur, lamb to the fallen angel ...! Part 3 of 4

7 Then he is to take the two goats and present them before the LORD at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 8 He is to cast lots for the two goats—one lot for the LORD and the other for the scapegoat. 9 Aaron shall bring the goat whose lot falls to the LORD and sacrifice it for a sin offering.
Leviticus 16:7-9 (New International Version)

10 The other goat, the scapegoat chosen by lot to be sent away, will be kept alive, standing before the Lord. When it is sent away to Azazel in the wilderness, the people will be purified and made right with the Lord.
Leviticus 16:10 (New Living Translation)

This passage tells us about the sacrifice that has to be done on Yom Kippur. And the sending away of the other lamb to the fallen angel Azazel in the wilderness. Does this have anything to do with Jephthah's daughter? Her story in itself is an intriguing one.

Yom Kippur, also refered to as Day of Atonement, is ten days after Rosh Hashanah. These ten days are called, the Days of Awe or the High Holy Days. The central theme of the day of Yom Kippur, is atonement and repentance. Jews seek forgiveness for wrong doings (sins) against God and people. It is one of the most holiest days for Jewish people.

According to tradition, on Rosh Hashannah God inscribes each person's fate for the coming year into a book, the book of life. And waits until Yom Kippur to seal their faith. The High Holy Days is meant for people to seek public and private petitions an confessions of guilt. At the end of Yom Kippur, one is considered absolved by God the Father.

The fallen

There are more bible versions, also in other languages like the Spanish Nueva Versión Internacional and the Dutch Nederlandse Bijbel Genootschap (NBG), which speak of Azazel in this passage. Unlike the (New) King James Version that speaks of the scapegoat that will be sent into the dessert. Sent, so doesn't necessarily have to die immediately on that day, but soon after.

So there were two lambs meant for offering, one for offering immediately in the Temple and the other one would die later while sent into the desert to A z a z e l. Who is he? The fallen angel to whom God ascribed all sin and is imprisoned under the ground in the dessert. He and his associates are the origin of the occult which they started of with human beings by teaching first the women in order to get acces to them so they could have children, whom later became demons after their death. So, them teaching human beings occultism and magic started with the women! Not that women being busy with occultism can lift Genesis 3:16 while competing with men, although many women occultists believe that's the way to go to do just that. For more about Azazel and the book of 1 Enoch, you can reed: Angels: holy and fallen.

4. And again the Lord said to Raphael: 'Bind Azâzêl hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness: and make an opening in the desert, which is in Dûdâêl, and cast him therein. 5. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may not see light. 6. And on the day of the great judgment he shall be cast into the fire .... 8. And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azâzêl: to him ascribe all sin.'
1 Enoch 10:4-8

This was necessary so the earth could be healed and mankind would not parish, Judges 10:1-3:
7 And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and  p r o c l a i m  the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons.

The holy angels proclaimed the healing of the earth, but it is God Almighty himself who does the healing of the earth and mankind. He is in charge of this healing process for which the holy angels and man bring in their part of the work necessary. The above mentioned events toke place just before the flood as mentioned in Genesis chapters 6-9. He made sure that Noach and his family would survive the flood. 

1. Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent Uriel to the son of Lamech, and said to him: 2. '〈Go to Noah〉 and tell him in my name "Hide thyself!" and reveal to him the end that is approaching: that the whole earth will be destroyed, and a deluge is about to come upon the whole earth, and will destroy all that is on it. 3. And now instruct him that he may escape and his seed may be preserved for all the generations of the world.'  
1 Enoch 10:1-3

But in case of a sacrifice wouldn't God provide?

The Lord will provide

Genesis 22 tells us about Abraham who went to sacrifice his son Isaac, who was already a grown up man and could made his own choices. He did choose to go with his father. God made clear to Abraham in the land Moriah that he himself would provide for the offering, Genesis 22:1-19. Notice verse 14 says:

And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided.”

What happened with Abraham and Isaac, who was a grown up man, foretold (is a blueprint) that God would provide a lamb for the sacrifice, his son Yeshua Messiah. By the way God doesn't ask for human sacrifices, Deuteronomy 32:15b-18. The fallen angels do (more about this reed: Angels: holy and fallen).

Yeshua Messiah was borne at the time of God's feasts of the fall. And he died at the time of the feast of Pasha, also God's feast, as the ultimate sacrifice for humanity. It was Yeshua's own choice as a grown up man, who lived in accordance to the will of his father, John 10:17-18, even when it hurt him, Matthew 26:38, Luke 12:50 and 22:42-44. In other words, he wasn't forced to lay down his life. He made the ultimate sacrifice in order to save people from their sins, and set humanity free. His sacrifice was foretold in many passages in biblical scripture. Also in the story of Abraham and Isaac.

If the first lamb symbolized a person, then the second lamb could symbolize some one else. Who? Does biblical scripture speak of another sacrifice that could foretell things to come?

The war 

Yes, there is another sacrifice mentioned in biblical scripture in the book of Judges. But this time it is a father, Jephthah and his only daughter.

Who was Jephthah? Judges 11:1-3
1 Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty warrior. His father was Gilead; his mother was a prostitute. 2 Gilead’s wife also bore him sons, and when they were grown up, they drove Jephthah away. “You are not going to get any inheritance in our family,” they said, “because you are the son of another woman.” 3 So Jephthah fled from his brothers and settled in the land of Tob, where a gang of scoundrels gathered around him and followed him.

The hole story about Jephthah and his daughter happens at the time of a war with the Ammonites (Amorites), and it all has to do with Moab, Judges chapter 10 to 12. The Israelites requested God's help, Judges 11:6-16:
6 Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD. They served the Baals and the Ashtoreths, and the gods of Aram, the gods of Sidon, the gods of Moab, the gods of the Ammonites and the gods of the Philistines. And because the Israelites forsook the LORD and no longer served him, ...
13 But you have forsaken me and served other gods, so I will no longer save you. 14 Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble!”
15 But the Israelites said to the LORD, “We have sinned. Do with us whatever you think best, but please rescue us now.” 16 Then they got rid of the foreign gods among them and served the LORD. And he could bear Israel’s misery no longer.

Why did the leaders of the Israelites appoint Jephthah to fight the war? Judges 10:17 says:
17 When the Ammonites were called to arms and camped in Gilead, the Israelites assembled and camped at Mizpah. 18 The leaders of the people of Gilead said to each other, “Whoever will take the lead in attacking the Ammonites will be head over all who live in Gilead.”
And Judges 11:4-10 tells us:
4 Some time later, when the Ammonites were fighting against Israel, 5 the elders of Gilead went to get Jephthah from the land of Tob. 6 “Come,” they said, “be our commander, so we can fight the Ammonites.”  ...
10 The elders of Gilead replied, “The LORD is our witness; we will certainly do as you say.” 11 So Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and commander over them. And he repeated all his words before the LORD in Mizpah.

But this war went way back to the time when the Israelites left Egypt to go to Canaan and their fight with the Amorites, who didn't want to allow the Israelites free and safe passage on the main road of their territory, Numbers 21:21-35.

They also encountered the Moabites who's king recruited Balaam to curse the Israelites, because he was afraid of the Israelites, Numbers 22:3-6. But God refused at that time to listen to Balaam, and Balaam end up blessing the Israelites. Numbers chapter 20 to 25 tells us this story, part of Israel's history. By the way how did Balaam ultimately end up? He died by the sword of the Israelites, Numbers 31:8.

But his teachings did not die with him, there is still mention of them in for example Numbers 25 and 31:16:
16 “They were the ones who followed Balaam's advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the LORD in the Peor incident, so that a plague struck the LORD's people.

And even in Revelation 2:14 as warning for believers.
14 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality. ... 16 Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

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?

Signs of time

When Yeshua Messiah died, there were signs in heaven and on earth, Matthew 27:45 and 51, Mark 15:33, Luke 23:44-45. We could expect the same again? Similar signs, in part, are also mentioned by the opening of the 6th seal, Revelation 6:12-14. The events mentioned when the 6th seal is opened will be caused by the anger of the Lamb, Revelation 6:16. I wonder what will cause his anger. Could it be what will happen to the lamb sent to Azazel? As far as I know the above mentioned hasn't happen yet. But should happen soon: YOM KIPPUR the 18th of September 2010". But one should keep in mind that what is to happen to that second lamb can also happen soon after Yom Kippur. Because that day is the day the lamb will be released into the dessert, Leviticus 16:21

But, why would all of the above have to happen in the time we live in?
For one, it's only in our time that people has acquired the necessary science in accessing and manipulating the  s e e d  of the  w o m a n  directly. A tool needed in case of resistance from those who are their choice. They would not want "no" for an answer.
Secondly, we are living in times that certain signs, like the restoration of the state of Israel, that is the Fig tree, Matthew 24: 32-33
32 “Now learn this parable from the  f i g  t r e e: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. ...
The restoration of Israel, which has been going on for decades, makes clear that we are near the end times as prophesied by God's prophets in biblical scripture. And it is in that period of time that the fallen ones will return as prophecies in biblical scripture like the book of Daniel, Revelation, Enoch tels us.

1.And I saw there the hosts of the angels of punishment going, and they held scourges and chains of iron and bronze. 2. And I asked the angel of peace who went with me, saying: 'To whom are these who hold the scourges going?' 3. And he said unto me: 'To their elect and beloved ones, that they may be cast into the chasm of the abyss of the valley. 4. And then that valley shall be filled with their elect and beloved, And the days of their lives shall be at an end, And the days of their leading astray shall not thenceforward be reckoned. 5. And in those days the  a n g e l s shall r e t u r n …
1 Enoch 56, notice verses 1 to 5

Could it be that the sending of the lamb out in our time would be a trigger to the events revealed to happen by the opening of the 6th seal, Revelation 6:12-16?
12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. ...

As for Jephthah's daughter biblical scripture says:
39 ... From this comes the Israelite tradition 40 that each year the young women of Israel go out for four days to commemorate the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite.
Judges 11:39

That is it then. No, because I do believe something will go wrong with these plans of the fallen ones. Why? Because the antichrist is a human being, offspring of the fallen angels as living and abiding by their will, but still a person, Revelation 13:18. The book of Daniel also talks about a person. And when Yeshuah Messiah speaks of the days of Noach he mentions the way of living, but not the offspring of the fallen angels, giants. So the Antichrist isn't their offspring as being a giant. In the past their were giants who ruled on earth (reed: gods, angels and demons). How could their plans on this matter go wrong? I believe, that will come down on faith in God the Almighty Father. Just as it did with Yeshua Messiah. God Almighty knows, for:

”8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people."
Psalm 3:2,8

God bless you,
