History: The Family Of Jacob (Israel)
The Twelve Tribes
>Ezekiel's Temple

>The Exodus Ends
>Wrath on Two Witnesses
>Breastplate Colors
>The Seven Churches
Jacob was the second of fraternal twin sons. God changed his name to Israel many years later. His brother Esau gave him the birthright of the firstborn for a pot of bean stew. With the help of his mother, they tricked his blind father into giving him the blessing of the first born. Fearing his brother's anger he ran away from home, after getting the birthright and blessing, to live with his uncle Laban in Babylon.
There he met and fell in love with his cousin Rachel and agreed to work seven years for her. But Laban switched the older daughter, Leah for her sister and Jacob discovered this after the marriage. His uncle said that He could marry Rachel in a week if he agreed to work another seven years and keep Leah as his wife. So Jacob hated Leah and loved Rachel and the sisters competed for his affection. Leah kept having children, including a daughter named Dinah, but Rachel was barren. Then Rachel gave Jacob her maid as a wife and Leah did the same. These four women became the mothers of the twelve tribes of Israel and their behavior became a prophecy about the fate of the righteous nation.

  1. Leah. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah. Issachar, Zebulun and Dinah.
    Her children became the monarchy and the priesthood (Judah and Levi).
  2. Rachel. Joseph and Benjamin.
  3. Bilhah ("Rachel's Maid"). Dan and Naphtali.
  4. Zilpah ("Leah's Maid"). Gad and Asher.

The Source Of The Symbols
Several characteristics about the tribes, their camp locations and their duties are a symbol of the final week of the life of Christ. As we examine each feature we will see how Christ used their lives and personalities to prophesy about His humiliation, death and victory. God writes the details of His humiliation in several layers of symbols that became the story of their lives.

The Camp Sites.
The Four Directions
» East. The coming of Hope.
» South. Trial and affliction.
e.g. Slavery in Egypt.
» West. The final destination.
» North. Judgment is in the north at the throne of God.
e.g. The king of the north.
Outside the sanctuary complex was the campsite of the tribes. The fours sons of Levi were camped closest to the sanctuary and three tribes were camped beyond each of them in all four directions. Their location around the temple represents the siege of the sanctuary.

The Characteristics, Duties and Experiences of The Tribes.
Besides their location around the sanctuary, several personal attributes are used to demonstrate the events in the life of Christ during His final week.
... Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day. (Luke 24: 46)
The characteristic of each son represents an important phase of His suffering as He was besieged by various groups.

There are at least twelve separate patterns occurring at the same time. Just remember that different symbols may be describing the same event or person from another point of view or at another point in time.
There also seems to be a law that says that the church must go through the experience of Christ. So we find that the same symbols and sequences can be applied to the church. However, this rich depth of symbols is always consistent in the fact that each son always represents the same experience and the same pattern.

12:30 PM 3/1/2011 Jesus came to Jerusalem at Passover to celebrate the feast of Booths. On the first day, He rode in Jerusalem through palm branches and on the eighth day He was in Heaven at an assembly (Leviticus 23: 39-43).
Wrath for Seven Times. He also suffered the five series of curses during the seven days.

  1. Enemies Rule. His enemies would rule over Him from the day He entered Jerusalem.
  2. No Fruit. He cursed the fig tree to represent the fact that Israel bore no fruit.
  3. Wild Beasts Attack Leaving No Children. Satan, the beast, caused Judas to betray Him and the rest of the disciples would desert Him. They would attack Him like wild beasts and scatter His supporters.
  4. Sword. A hostile, armed mob came with the Gentile Roman army to arrest Him. Peter used a sword.
  5. Wrath of God. Jesus suffered the wrath during His trial, crucifixion and death.

This is a symbolic representation of the same events that we will attempt to explain below.

The journey through the desert was His time on earth as the portable sanctuary on an exodus to guide Israel to the Promised Land. In His final week Jesus was besieged by all twelve tribes. Then in the final three days He was disassembled and disemboweled. After His resurrection, He completed His exodus to heaven.

Now we will examine the three tribes on each side and the duties of the sons of Levi assigned to their side as they were fulfilled during the final week of His life. Each son represents an event or phase of His experience. We will see how Jesus learned the sequence of events of His last days.
Behold we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes and they will condemn Him to death and will hand Him over to the Gentiles. They will mock Him and spit on Him, and scourge Him and kill Him, and three days later He will rise again. (Mark 10: 33-34)

The Exodus of Jesus from Jerusalem. At the tranfiguration, he told His disciples that He would be going on an exodus.
And it came to pass about eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his clothes was white and glistening. And, look, there two men talked with him, which were Moses and Elias:
Who appeared in glory, and spoke of his departure which He should accomplish at Jerusalem.
(Luke 9: 28-31)
The word "departure" is the same word as "exodus". The two prophets who went on an exodus appeared with Him.

The Tribes In The East ("Prince of the Covenant: Entering and Leaving Jerusalem")
The exodus journey begins. As they begin their journey, the ark of the covenant which is covered by the inner veil goes before them. It represents Christ who was hiding His divinity under a human body. The journey starts with Christ, the King coming in the form of a Man to begin an important phase in the Plan of Salvation. He enters Jerusalem one more time before He goes home.
who goes before you on your way, to seek out a place for you to encamp, in fire by night and cloud by day, to show you the way in which you should go. (Deuteronomy 1: 33)
Their names mean, "praise the Lord", "God has given me my wages" and "God has endowed me with a good gift".
These are three sons of the wife who was not loved. They represent the roles of Christ when He entered Jerusalem on a donkey through crowds of adoring fans. Jesus entered Jerusalem to be praised and betrayed as a child who was not loved. Our quarantined world would also stand before heaven on that day as a wife who was not loved.

» Camped Out In The East. Jesus spent the week on the mount of Olives which is in the east of Jerusalem.
Camping Out on the Mount of Olives. Now during the day He was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet. (Luke 21: 37)
As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" (Matthew 24: 3)
After the Seder. After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. (Matthew 26: 30)
BlessingsCurses Sacrifice and Laver ("Priests, Sores and Dead Men"). Jesus came through the east gate with a gift to heal the diseases of the great sea of wicked who were bathing and drowning in the blood of the dead. He appointed fishermen to go out into this sea of blood to catch men, but He was thrown overboard and caught in the net of the wicked.
Lulav Waving The Lulav Forward (East). The fruit of God and the Branch of the green tree went east.

Exodus ("The Exodus Journey East"). They left Egypt and traveled east to cross the turbulent waters of the Red Sea. After celebrating the first Passover on the night of Nisan 14, they carried all their possessions and left Egypt to live in tents. The blessings of Moses mentioned "the going forth" of Issachar and "the tents" of Zebulun on their journey to mountain where God called them. They were the treasures that came out of the Red sea. God fulfilled the blessing of Judah when He helped them against their enemies as the hordes of Pharaoh chased after them. With his raised hands, Moses helped them by closing the sea.
Child ("Childhood"). A star in the east guided the wise men to the baby. At His birth He was greeted as a king by the choir of angels and shepherds and wise men came from "the east" to bring Him gifts. In His manger as a baby were two animals that would represent Him, a lamb and a donkey.
Creation The First Day of Creation (East). Light was introduced on the first day of creation. Jesus came as the light of God and taught in the temples and He introduced Israel to their God.
Covenant The Covenant ("The Prince of the Covenant Comes"). He established His credentials as the Prince of the Covenant. He was greeted as King, entering the east gate to bring the offering. He taught them in the temple and accepted the burden of their sins, then He had the covenant meal at the Passover before He went out to be the Lamb of God.
He fulfilled the law of Ezekiel by entering and leaving at the east gate. Although He was killed at the north gate, He finally left the earth on the Mount of Olives, outside the east gate. (Ezekiel 43: 1-2,3; Ezekiel 46: 8-9)
Pray Prayer: (The Lord is our Guide). The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters. (Psalm 23: 1-2)
The green pastures were the bed of palm leaves spread on the road as He came through the east gates of Jerusalem. As Issachar, He lay down to bear the burdens. Before He was led to the turbulent waters of Reuben, He was beside the quiet waters of the Kidron as the Spirit led Him to Gethsemane.
... He restores my soul. He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. (Psalm 23: 3)
Prayer: (The Kingdom of God is at Hand!). Our Father, who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name Your kingdom come, Your will be be done, on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6: 9-10)
Seder. Give us this day our daily bread. (Matthew 6: 11)
Judah was praised as He ushered in the kingdom of God. They received the Bread from Heaven at the Passover seder.

The Tribes In The South ("Suffering, Arrest and Trials")
The grueling journey in the wilderness continues as the nations around them attack. Their names mean, "God has seen my afflictions", "God has heard that I am unloved" and "A troop, How fortunate".
As we transition to the south we see that Zebulun is a ship of disciples upon the turbulent seas of Reuben. The disciples would enter a phase of trial and testing when they will all abandon the ship and desert Jesus. Now Jesus was suffering through His trial and afflictions. As the people expressed their hatred and humiliated Him, His disciples abandoned Him. But He found hope that God would love Him because He was afflicted and hated.

The Transition. Zebulun is the ship of disciples that is about to ride the turbulent seas of Reuben.
Lulav Waving The Lulav Right (South). The fruit of God and the Branch of the green tree went south.

» End Of The Exodus (The Raider With The Sword). The king with the sword who was taken away by an army now returns with His own army and a sword (Revelation 19).
Stop ("Detour and Blessings Robbed"). According to the law of God, the journey should proceed to Joseph because after He had been afflicted by God in the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus had won the victory and our reproach had been removed by heaven. There He would have been rested, refreshed and strengthened in preparation for the next phase of the Plan, which was to purchase us from Satan with His blood. But He was arrested and forcibly taken away from this lawful path in His weakened state to Dan, where He was condemned, tortured and killed as a wicked Man.
His actions were similar to those of the Amalekites who attacked Israel in their weakened state at Rephidim. The next day God won the victory over them as Moses stood with his hands raised. Then God swore to blot out the name of Amalek forever (Exodus 17: 8-12). A severely weakened Christ would win our victory with outstretched hand.
When His blessings were robbed it is as if He suffered curses.
BlessingsCurses Ark of the Covenant ("Ichabod!"). The glory of the Lord has departed! These events were also experienced during the darkness. But for Jesus, suffering unjustly, it was not only the darkness of night. God had departed. He would be marred beyond recognition as His face and body were matted with blood and wounds. His glory was also gone.
Altar of Incense ("Silence"). God and His disciples were silent.
From the garden of Gethsemane He was taken west towards the wealthy section of Jerusalem where the kings and high priests lived. Here He went through many trials.

Lulav Waving The Lulav Backward (West). The fruit of God and the Branch of the green tree went west. Waving to the back points to their blessings robbed. So He was now the tail, not the head.

Before He enters the next phase, Dan, He must be affected by the waters. Normally, the drying rivers help the righteous, but this time both the drying rivers and the raging torrent were devastating.
» Waters Dry Up ("Righteous"). All His support was gone. The disciples, friends and relatives ran away.
» Waters Drown ("Wicked"). All the wicked descended on Him like a giant rogue wave from the turbulent sea.

Exodus ("The Exodus Journey South"). After travelling east they turned south at the turbulent waters of the Red Sea. They traveled south to meet God at Mount Horeb and received the laws. Unfortunately, the priests used the law to pervert justice in the case of Christ and ironically fulfilled every law that prophesied about Him, including the fact that the priests must participate in the sacrifice of the offering and bear the guilt (Numbers 18: 1).
Child ("Childhood"). When He became a human He gave up His preeminence in heaven.
Volunteered to be a Lower Life Form. But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone. (Hebrews 2: 9)
Slave. but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2:7)
Volunteered to be Poor. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8: 9)
» Fled South from Herod. Soon after His birth, Jesus moved south to Egypt to escape the wrath of king Herod who hated the Child. During that time Herod raided the towns near Bethlehem and killed the boys under two.
Egypt. So Joseph got up and took the Child and His mother while it was still night, and left for Egypt. (Matthew 2: 14)
Creation The Second Day of Creation (South). The water and sky were separated on this day. The turbulent waters that was Israel was separated from God. They were rejected for another nation because they separated themselves from Christ.
Covenant The Covenant ("The High Priest and Shepherd of the Covenant"). He prayed for them. He healed their wounds when Peter cut off the ears of the servant of the high priest.

Pray Prayer: (The Struggle in Gethsemane). ... Even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I fear no evil, for You are with me. Your rod and Your staff they comfort me. (Psalm 23: 4)
As He was continuously being abandoned since the seder, the only source of comfort that He had was the law. He had to have faith that the Author of that law was fair and just and that the law predicted and promised that He would be vindicated after great suffering. The rod was the law that corrected Him and told Him what to do. The staff was the guidance He received from the prophecies about His life.
Prayer: (Forgiveness). And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. (Matthew 6: 12)
Our debt of sin was forgiven in Gethsemane. Jesus forgave us our debts to Him and He asked the Father to forgive the debts he bore for us. Even though Christ forgave our debt, He still carried the loss. He still bore the price of debt not paid.

The Tribes In The North ("Judgment, Wrath, Death and Resurrection")
In this phase, Israel is dying in the wilderness from the snake bite received at Eden. The only way they can be healed is to gaze at the snake impaled on a cross. As we transition to the north we see that Gad is the raider whose angry mob delivers Christ to the serpent to be judged by Dan. Their names mean, "God has judged me", "Happy am I", "I have prevailed".
The Sanhedrin met in the "Hall of Hewn Stones", fittingly located in the north wall of the sanctuary complex. It was here that justice was perverted and an innocent man was condemned.
All three tribes said the curse. They represent the final judgment by the people who decided that He was worse than a murderer. It is also the three hour ordeal of Christ on the cross when He became the serpent on the cross and died.
This also fulfills the law which says that the sacrifice must be made towards the north of the altar.
He shall lay it on the side of the altar northward before the Lord, and Aaron's sons the priests shall sprinkle His blood around the altar. (Leviticus 1: 11)
In this representation, the tribes that symbolized His death and burial are in the north. Golgotha, the place of the crucifixion, was outside the city in the north. See map of old Jerusalem.

The Transition. Jesus is attacked by raiders who give Him to the serpent. In the future, Jesus is Gad, the raider who attacks the dragon of Dan, the seven-headed serpent at the end of time.

The Seder. These are also the events that correspond to the Passover seder. It began when Pilate exchanged Him for Barabbas at the end of the trials, and ended with His resurrection.
Cup 1 Passover ("I Will Bring Out"). Jesus was brought out to the crowd and exchanged for Barabbas. The Passover Lamb, the Lord's Goat was exchanged for a scapegoat.
Lulav Waving The Lulav Left (North). The fruit of God and the Branch of the green tree went north. The north is on the left side, pointing to the wicked being on the left hand.

Exodus ("The Exodus Journey North"). After Sinai, they traveled north towards the Promised Land under the banner of Dan and they rebelled on the borders. They were even bitten by snakes. So the first generation lost preeminence and was rejected in favor of the second generation and they wandered around for forty years until the rebellious generation died.
On this journey they would be bitten by snakes and they would look up at a copper snake to live. They would fight the seven nations of the region to possess the land. The generation of Christ would also wander another forty years until their temple was destroyed.
Child ("Childhood"). They moved back north from Egypt to Nazareth when Herod died.
A Nazarene. So Joseph got up, took the Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel. ... and came and lived in a city called Nazareth ... (Matthew 2: 21, 23)
Nazareth was a bad place from which nobody expected anything good to emerge. So He literally spent His youth in hell.
Nathanael said to him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." (John 1: 46)
At the age of twelve He was missing in the temple for three days. He was running around loose. But He was doing the work of His Father, sharing the Bread of Life.
Then, after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. (Luke 2: 46)
He was lost in the temple for three days just as Jonah and Christ were buried for three days.
Creation The Third Day of Creation (North). God created trees, seed and fruit on this day and filled the earth with food for the people and animals. All three represent the events on this day in a more positive light.

The Sixth Day of Creation. He also filled the earth with animals and people on the sixth day. This is the day Adam and Eve were born. The process is similar to how Christ gave birth to the church at His death.
So the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept. Then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The Lord fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. (Genesis 2: 21-22)

Covenant The Covenant ("The Lamb of the Covenant"). He gave His life.

Pray Prayer: (The Bread From Heaven). You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed my head with oil, my cup overflows. (Psalm 23: 5)
He was the Passover meal spread out on a Table of Shewbread and surrounded by His enemies. Filled with the Spirit, He was the overflowing drink offering that was being poured out.
Prayer: (SHEMA). And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil ... (Matthew 6: 13)
He was led into wrath by the raiders of Gad into the evil that waited for Him at Dan. But He was delivered from the evil of torture and death by the resurrection. The SHEMA reminded Him not to be tempted by His desire to come down from the cross, and end His suffering (Numbers 15: 39-40). He must do the will of the Father so that the world could be delivered from evil.

The Tribes In The West ("Resurrection and Heaven and the Promised Land")
Israel enters the Promised Land and the exodus journey ends. The Son of Man comes from the east and goes towards the west where the Most Holy Place is located. These are the children of Rachel, the wife who was loved and who was barren. Their names mean, God has "made me fruitful", "taken away my reproach", "made me forget", and I am the "Son of the right hand" not the "son of sorrow".
The names of these tribes signify life and children. When they crossed over into the Promised Land all of these tribes were asked to pronounce the blessings. There is no curse is heaven so these tribes were not asked to pronounce the curses. The symbols suggest the reward of the righteous in heaven.
The Fruitful Tree of Life. Then He showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
» No Curse. There will no longer be any curse, and the throne of God and the Lamb will be in it. And his bond servants will serve Him.
(Revelation 22: 1-3)
The Psalms also mention the four tribes on the west who will be rescued for calamity.
Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth! Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power and come to save us! O God, restore us and cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved. (Psalm 80: 1-3)
These are the tribes that are saved.

  1. Joshua and Caleb ("Two of the First Generation"). This represents the remnants of the smaller first generation church in heaven. Only two tribes from the first generation, Joseph and Benjamin, are represented in the west. Only two people from the first generation crossed over to the Promised Land.
  2. Ephraim and Manasseh ("All of The Second Generation"). Since their mother is Egyptian, they are part Gentile. This represents the Gentile second generation church. Only in the west do we find the great multitude of people from the second generation of the Gentile church.

Lulav Waving The Lulav Down (Promised Land). The fruit of God and the Branch of the green tree went down to inherit the earth.

The Transition. Naphtali is the resurrected doe who will be added to Joseph as another son.

Exodus ("The Exodus Journey West"). The second generation went west across the Jordan river to reach their destination. Only two men from the first generation survived, Joshua and Caleb.
Only two sons from the original generation are represented in the west, Joseph and Benjamin.
Joshua, their leader was from the tribe of Ephraim (Numbers 13: 8, 16) and Ephraim is the leader on the western side.
Child ("Childhood"). There is no record of a journey west to a better place as a Child. That would occur after His death. The scriptures said that He submitted Himself to His parents and grew up "in favor with God and men" (Luke 2: 52).
The journey west comes at the end in the experience of Christ because He must suffer the journey north towards wrath as the substitute for us.
Creation The Fourth Day of Creation (West). God created the Sun, Moon and stars of the heavens. God will fill the heavens with the people from earth. They will be lights that reflect the mercy of God. In this role they are priests, kings and royal ambassadors.

Covenant The Covenant ("The King of the Covenant"). He became our King and righteous Judge.
Pray Prayer: (Inheritance). Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23: 6)
Prayer. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Matthew 6: 13)
In the west we meet God when He comes to rescue us and inherit His kingdom and live in His house forever.

The final week is a local fulfillment of Daniel if you use this isolated text.
"And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering ... (Daniel 9: 27)
If we look at the global fulfillment of Daniel 9: 27, it follows this pattern of events based on the roles of the sons.
The first 3.5 days were Nisan 10-13. The last 3.5 days were the events of Nisan 14-16.

Wheel The Death of Stephen in 34 AD. The death of Stephen marked the end of the seven years and the moment that the people officially rejected the ministry of Christ. The covenant time was legally over and the Gospel formally went to the Gentiles. We will use the death of Stephen to illustrate the same pattern of fulfillment of these events. It is another example of a long time prophecy ending with the same pattern of events as the entire prophecy
Now when they heard this, they were cut to the quick, and they began gnashing their teeth at him. But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God; and he said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." But they cried out with a loud voice, and covered their ears and rushed at him with one impulse. When they had driven him out of the city, they began stoning him; and the witnesses laid aside their robes at the feet of a young man named Saul. They went on stoning Stephen as he called on the Lord and said, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!"
Forgive and Forget. Then falling on his knees, he cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them!" Having said this, he fell asleep.
(Acts 7: 54-60)

Law The Feasts In The Final Week

The Curse and Wrath of God: A Week in Hell
For one week Jesus kept the covenant. During this week, He saw His position as the image of God to the world systematically destroyed and tarnished.
Then I will act with wrathful hostility and I will punish you seven times for your sins. (Leviticus 26: 28)
Six sons said the curse and six said the blessing. But He was supposed to experience the curse seven times. Because there were thirteen tribes the curse was fulfilled. Seven of the twelve sons symbolized a curse, six were a blessing.

Numbered Digitally. Now that I know that the Bible is a book of science, I noticed that the random assignment of the curses might indicate a digital binary coding system. The blessing is assigned a "1" for on, and the curse is assigned a "0" for off. The numbers clearly seem to point to judgment.

The exodus journeys take on their own significance as various histories in the Plan of Salvation.
We presented the configurations of the tribes as various histories of Christ and the church or specific subsets of those histories. This is a summary that shows how these are related.
Each son has the same meaning whether or not it is applied to good or evil. The change in order shows the order of events in a group's experience. Asher consistently represents death and martyrdom. Naphtali represents freedom. Gad consistently represents successfully attacking the enemy. Dan represents judgment of evil. Issachar represents flight, leaving or exodus. Zebulun represents camping safely in the wilderness. Judah represents leadership. The rest of the sons are all first or second sons who represent the Jews or the Gentiles at various stages.

March The Exodus Order of the Tribes as Christ's Journey
The major study that we have just completed shows an order of travel that is east, south, north and west. It is not a straight line of travel from east to west, but it is a zigzag order like lightning.
For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. (Matthew 24: 27)
At the Second Coming, Christ comes from the east and raises the dead who are stored in the east. The ashes were stored on the east of the altar and the Mount of Olives on the east is a burial ground. Then He retrieves His afflicted church in the south, who have fled as far away as possible from the Babylonian apostasy in the north. Then He goes north to execute judgment and wrath on the earth before leaving for Heaven in the west.
This is not the marching order of the tribes as you will see below. It is the order of direction of travel of the first exodus.

Like their forefathers, this was the exodus journey that Israel forced the Messiah to endure.

Israel moved their camp in a particular order under the leadership banner of one of the tribes. The sons of Levi also moved the sanctuary and its furniture in a particular order. The instructions predict the order of events from the first to the third coming of Jesus. They also chronicle the events of His young life.
Thus the sons of Israel did; according to all that the Lord commanded Moses, so they camped by their standards, and so they set out, every one by his family according to his father's household. (Numbers 2: 34)

  1. Levi Aaron ("Ark of the Covenant"). The ark went before them. On the first occasion they walked three days.
    Thus they set out from the mount of the Lord three days' journey, with the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord journeying in front of them for the three days, to seek a resting place for them. (Numbers 10: 33)
    God goes ahead of us to guide us and John the Baptist went ahead of Jesus to prepare the world for Him.
    » ("Three Days Journey"). This represents the journey of three days and nights when Jesus was in the bowels of the earth or in the hands of the wicked from the night of the Passover supper to the resurrection.
    » ("To Seek a Resting Place"). After His resurrection, Jesus finds a permanent home for us to give us rest. He is preparing a place for us. (John 14: 1-3)
  2. East ("The Arrival of the King"). This is the first coming of Jesus. This was fulfilled both when He rode through the east gate to became the Passover Lamb.

    At the end of time God will guide us with the gift of the Holy Spirit in the Latter Rain.
  3. Levi Gershon and Merari ("Sanctuary Building, Fence and Roof"). The tabernacle was taken down and moved.
    Then the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari, who were carrying the tabernacle set out. (Numbers 10: 17)
    Two events fulfilled this action. Jesus was the temple that was torn down, He moved to Heaven.
    In 70 A.D., the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans so that no other animal sacrifices could be legally offered in His name on earth by His people. This is why He cannot allow an earthly temple to be rebuilt in Jerusalem to offer sacrifices in His name.

    ("Afflicted")
    Simeon
    ("Hated")
    Gad

  4. South ("Reuben"). This is the status of the two branches of the church during the 2000 years between the first and second comings of Christ. The church moved to the land of the Gentiles to gather people for the kingdom. Here they were tried, persecuted and scattered through the world. The second phase of God's leading will be through the trials and afflictions. The success of the latter rain quickly develops into the persecution. The severe trials causes the church to be scattered as they seek to hide from those who hate them. Eventually, the wicked will come to arrest them, place them on trial and then kill them.
  5. Levi Kohath ("The Holy Objects and The Holy Nation"). They moved these holy objects on their shoulders. The tabernacle was moved first so that it would be set up before the holy objects arrived.
    Then the Kohathites set out, carrying the holy objects; and the tabernacle was set up before their arrival. (Numbers 10: 21)
    We are the holy objects that are moved on the shoulders of God are the holy nation of the righteous at the Second Coming. God returns and moves them to the new tabernacle which is set up in heaven before their arrival.
    Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. (John 14: 1-3)
    Also notice that it is the tribes of the beloved wife that are symbolically the holy objects.

    » The Complete World History. The marching order differs from the exodus order because it ends with the tribes from the west then the north, instead of north then west. A merging of both shows a complete history of the righteous and the wicked which includes two movements of the northern tribes. One at the Second Coming and one at the Third Coming.

    » Leaning North ("Wrath on the Wicked"). God pours wrath on the wicked to rescue the saints in this northern pattern. He goes north to destroy the wicked for the first time before proceeding west with His holy people.
  6. West ("The Reward of the Righteous"). These are the fruitful members of the holy nation who have the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
    The Psalms of Asaph all address the issue of the time of the judgment and the wrath of God. Psalm 80 is a prophesy for the four tribes who will symbolically exist at that time who are passing through severe persecution.
    Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth. Before Ephraim, and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power and come to save us! (Psalm 80: 1-2)
    The words "and come to save us" echo the words of the people on the feast of Tabernacles. At this stage they have been saved.
    » The Waving of the Lulav. On the feast of Tabernacles the Lulav was waved in six directions in this order: east, south, west, north, up and down.
    The Day of Wrath. The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind: "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek." The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath. He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth. He will drink from a brook beside the way; therefore he will lift up his head. (Psalm 110: 4-7)
  7. North ("The Day of Wrath: The Millennium and the Judgment of the Wicked"). It seems as if the story should end in the west with the righteous in the presence of God. However, symbolically this is the darkest hour because all three of these tribes said the curse. The events begin with the judgment of the wicked at the Second Coming to start the millennium when there will be darkness on the planet for 1000 years.
    Darkness. I saw the earth, and, look, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. I saw the mountains, and, look, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I looked, and there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I looked, and the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities there were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger. For this has the Lord said, the whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. (Jeremiah 4: 23-27)

    7 Last Plagues Millennium Second Resurrection
    North Eagle (Wrath)

    » Second Coming (Devouring the Wicked Prey).
    The third phase of God's leading is to respond with wrath on the wicked. They are judged in the seven last plagues, then they are dead during the millennium and rise again at the third coming so that they can be judged. The righteous do not experience this wrath because Christ experienced it for them.

    ("Fruitful")
    Manasseh
    ("Forget")
    Benjamin
    ("Wolf")
    Holy Nation Judgment Execution
    West Bull (Entering New Jerusalem)

    » Third Coming (The Division of the Spoil).
    The reward of the righteous that began at the Second Coming continues at this time and so does the wrath on the wicked. However, to receive their reward and inherit the earth, we still have the problem of the disposition of the wicked. So in the midst of this joyful time we have Benjamin who must act as a wolf in the evening.
    At this time the final phase of the plan is executed. At the third coming even the wicked will see the New Jerusalem and the fruitful nation. When they are judged, God will help us to forget them because we will remove all our emotional ties to them when we witness their behavior. Then, during the final period of darkness (evening), God destroys them as the Wolf and distributes the earth to us.

Many original insights came because of the gift of knowledge. The gift appears to be centered around teaching me about Christ.
May 16-17, 2007. The Holy Spirit taught me about the camp positions of the tribes.
May 20-27, 2007. He taught me about the blessings of Moses, marching order and Jonah. Ezekiel in June.
I never read these concepts anywhere nor was I taught them.
