End-Times ‘balm of Gilead’ heals land for all relations
exegesis of Hosea Chapters 1-4 exempts descendants of Israelite East
M’nashe -- whose migration is traced minimally to 38 Athap(b)ascan
Language group nations including the Navajo and the five nations of
Apache -- from the justice
“without mercy” decreed for the Ten Tribes west of the Jordan River.
Justice “with mercy” is evidenced by the Native chanting of
permutations of the unutterable Divine Name in Native drumming and
ceremonies. This gives the
descendants of East M’nashe assimilated with the never un-covenanted
priests of Gilead, the authority to
administer the “balm of Gilead.” The balm prophesied to “heal the
nations” is now defined as a Last Days Covenant between humanity and the
four-legged, winged and things that crawl on the ground … and to end the
sword, bow and “violence” (fracking) “in” the earth. (Hosea 2:20).

the non-biblical phrase, “one in being with the Father.”
However, you add it up, the

No disrespect is meant to anyone; only to state
clearly that Native American
concepts of Jesus are not the same as
Christian doctrine and dogma.
Except for those who have left the traditions of the elders and
converted to Christianity or
some other faith, the vast majority of
Native Americans believe
Jesus to be our “Big Brother,” especially those to who he has appeared
and so identified himself.

It is contentious because even other
Christians are judged by it,

question it. Would Jesus
want his followers to be arguing about this or cutting off people from
fellowship because of it?
Hosea warns to stay clear of anyone who clings to
any idol (another God and especially another God “before My face”).
In a Torah context,
Jesus is understood as a tzadik,
a righteous man empowered to re-covenant the children of Israel with their Father and who
enables the free gift of the Holy Spirit to all who make that covenant
regardless of their faith.
The cry of many is, “God, I want to know YOU more.”
It is a self-defeating cry if it is directed to Jesus
as that God.

Dancers provide the “chosen one” with the necessary

They drove him away and he left Gilead to settle in the land of Tob,
where Judges 11:3 indicates
he surrounded himself with
anashei-reikim (men who were coarse, rough, loutish, crude and who
consequently sometimes might appear rude).
He acquired the reputation of being a mighty man of valor and
without fear, ventured forth with his “uncouth” band.
He secured a promise from the elders of
that he would be their leader if he would come and lead them in battle
against Ammon. Jephthah knew the history of Israel’s origins and in a
discourse that could serve today to justify the expansion of the House
of Joseph into Gilead and the Bashan (Compare
Zechariah 10:10 with Judges
11:14-27) unraveled the logic the king of Ammon asserted, “Because
Israel took away my land when it ascended from Egypt, from Ammon to the

repent of their evil ways – I will hear from Heaven and forgive their
sin and heal their land.”
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
The same tools for this mandatory Last Days
covenant were in place when the settlers arrived but with a few
exceptions, neither settler nor Native then realized or even suspected
their identity in ancient Israel.
Ethan Smith’s 1823 “ View
of the Hebrews,” was one exception, although nowhere does Smith
identify East M’nashe or even
the House of Joseph generally
as the family from whom Native

They believe Native Americans will build them a

that The Almighty will make a “full end of every nation where the House

Those who buy into a divination come under its spell.
Any not grounded in Torah
and who ignore the Torah
admonitions about not “adding to the words of Moses,” or accepting Truth

will be vulnerable.
The familiar spirit(s) who assisted Smith’s
divination is/are extremely spiritually engaged.

pluck that harp again and again.
And some of the prayers will bring one to tears.
Unless one keeps his/her head in the
Torah – forgiving the man,
one should – this becomes a most seductive spirit.
As to whether “Jesus came in the flesh (was mortal)?”which the
Apostle John said should be the test of all spirits, it appears that the
fruit coming from this spirit, professes the same heresy as the
Nicene Creed, dishonoring the

prophets reveal truth without “devices” such as seer stones, crystal
balls, tea leaves or – in ancient times – the entrails of animals.
They hear directly from the Spirit.
For instance, Smith was accurate that a family of
Joseph exists among the Native American population; he just “divined”
the wrong family, M’nashe west of
instead of East M’nashe.
He also accurately divined a Last Days restoration of the
covenant and spiritual sovereignty of Native Americans – which is the
topic of this very exegesis! -- but his followers claim it is based on
the Book of Mormon and not
the Torah ... or a
combination of the two, which is not possible if his work was divined.
Consequently the Doctrine
and Covenants of the Mormon
Church replace the Covenant
of Torah that binds all of
Israel throughout its generations with an off-the-wall “new and
everlasting covenant of sealing in Temple marriage” in a “Members Only”
Doctrine and Covenants
Ephraim has always had a problem with pride and arrogance, we
learn from Hosea. “Exclusivity” is just what a spiritual enemy would
offer to a spiritually prideful people.
remember Torah results in usurping Aaronic priesthood
Ephraimites also usurp the
Aaronic priesthood. Smith claims this priesthood was revived in a
personal revelation to him and Oliver Cowdery from John the Baptist, who
he said appeared to them.
Cowdery was one of the purported witnesses who reputedly saw the golden
plates in a vision. If the
Baptist indeed possessed the
spirit of Elijah as Jesus himself stated, his later appearance (to Smith
and Cowdery) should have pointed the LDS Church
toward the Torah:
Torah of Moses my servant,
which I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel
– decrees and statutes.
Behold I send you Elijah the prophet …”
Grandfather has a special place “reserved” for any
who “add to the words of Moses.” Smith’s
“Book of Moses” in his
“Pearl of Great Price” does exactly that.
Not as commentary, but as the writ for doctrine, and very strange
doctrine with no basis in Torah
and in conflict with Torah.
The deception is clever and could be the means the
disciples of Jesus were warned that the Adversary in the Last Days would
employ to “deceive the very elect.” Because of the Birthright,
Ephraim believes itself to be
this elect. The giveaway
for anyone versed in Torah
though is the “seer stone.” Smith used the same “seer stone” claiming he
could locate buried treasure.
This resulted in his conviction for “glass-looking fraud” four
years before the Book of Mormon
was published, according to 1826 court records from Bainbridge County,
The book was published in 1830 and relates the purported history of a
family of Joseph and genealogical records this family acquired through
murder and deceit.
spirit, humanity of Smith
The same spirit(s) who spoke so eloquently at
Nicea appear also to have
seduced Joseph Smith Jr. about the deity of Jesus.
Smith’s humanity is certainly amusing.
To fabricate his “Book of
Abraham” from Egyptian papyri traveling with a mummy show!
When the Rosetta stone was discovered after Smith died (making it
possible to translate hieroglyphs) his story of Abraham in his already
suspect, “Pearl of Great Price”
turns out to be a page from the
Egyptian Book of the Dead!
One can forgive Smith’s humanity although it does
irreparably damage his credibility.
Perchance, his early dabblings in glass-looking got out of
control and he was a legitimate prophet but who heard two voices and
could not distinguish the two. The
gematria of his name should
certainly be an alarm for any
Ephraimite who has read the

for the “preserved of Israel”

Note: Deity is not implied
in this identity or it would conflict with Torah.
understanding of ‘son of God’
The “son of God,” is a term the Church has
attempted to define strictly as “deity” without regard to
Halachah (the practical
walking out of the commands of
Torah determined by the ancient
Sanhedrin from the time of
Moses). A section in these
laws regulates the behavior of “fathers” and “sons.” The “son” is the
only person who could legally marry a woman promised to his father …
provided there was never a consummation of the betrothal to the father …
should the woman play the harlot during the period of engagement.
This precisely describes the relationship of
The Almighty with his two

was never cut off from its covenant and the language at
Sinai is that of betrothal
and not consummation, this means the one called “son of God” would be
sent to re-covenant the House of
Israel. In Jesus’ own
words, he sent his disciples only
to the lost sheep of the House of
Israel.” (Matthew 10:6)
His Mother, Miriam, was told Jesus “would be
called the son of the Most
High” and “son of God” because “the Spirit came upon her” and “the power
of the Most High overshadowed her.” (Luke
1) But at every
instance Jesus was challenged with this unique identity, he was careful
to qualify himself as “ben Adam,”
or “son of man.”
This is the expression in
Hebrew of strict humanity as the
“God is not an “eesh”
(the ordinary Hebrew word for
man) that He should be deceitful, nor a “ben
Adam” (son of Adam, used generically to mean of “mankind”) that He
should relent. Would he say
and not do or speak and not confirm?”
It is curious then, why Jesus would choose this
particular identity with Adam if he were deity.
Note however the distinction between “deity,”
which contradicts the Torah
and “divine,” (from the

Ezekiel by Mesorah Publications) The
tzadik co-exists in the
spiritual realm both in this world and the
World-To-Come during his/her
life on Earth and afterward.
This is to make “intercession” for those who have yet to overcome
their inclinations toward evil primarily by suffering for them.
This describes the ministry of Jesus even today, interceding at
the “right hand of the Father” in the
World to Come, which is
characteristic of all tzadikim
when one visits his/her grave to petition Grandfather.
The people do not pray to the
tzadik, but rather honor
him/her by their visit.

of Gilead’: Medicine to
heal the nations, repair Judah-Joseph
Before Midianites descended from Abraham’s second
wife, K’turah, showed up to rescue Joseph from a pit and sell him for 20
silver shekels to Ishmaelites passing through to Egypt, Joseph’s elder
brother, Judah, had the same
idea. But Judah
wanted among other things, the “balm
of Gilead” from his distant cousins as his price for the sale of
Joseph. His other brothers
agreed. (Genesis 25:27)
Jeremiah connects the same “balm”
to the healing of the “daughter
of My People,” or the descendants of
My People identified by
Hosea as the Northern
Ten Tribes in exile.”
Because of assimilation with the nations, this means the
balm is intended to “heal the
nations.” (Jeremiah 8:22)

Jehu was commissioned to rid Israel of Ahab and Jezebel and their
successors, including King Jehoram.
Because Ahab sincerely repented, the judgment was decreed on his
son, Jehoram. Jehu killed
Jehoram with his bow, together with King Ahaziah of
Judah who was visiting
Jehoram at Jezreel, while
Jehoram was recovering from an injury sustained warring against the
Arameans. Ahaziah’s mother
was a relation of King Ahab and consequently, the King of Judah
followed Ahab’s wicked ways. (2
Jehu ordered the slaying of all 70 princes of Ahab
who were in line of succession to the monarchy of the
House of Israel.
He ordered the deaths of all worshippers and the prophets and
priests of Ba’al. Jehu also
had Jezebel thrown out of a window and killed at her palace in Gezer in
the Jezreel valley.
(2 Kings 9-10)
Although he was not altogether righteous as the
kings of Judah are described
and did not obey Torah fully,
The Almighty promised Jehu
four kings as his heirs before the
House of Israel would come to
an end. The breaking of a “bow” is today sometimes a Native symbol of a
broken relationship or covenant.
The mention of the Valley
Jezreel here as the place the covenant was broken clarifies its
location later as the “place” where a new covenant is made.

Jereboam II of Israel was succeeded by his son,
Zechariah, the 4th king hailing from Jehu, in the 38th
year of Uzziah.
‘Remembrance’ of the bloodshed of Jehu
or remembrance of Jehu’s
acts, is usually interpreted as
The Almighty’s “revenge” or “vengeance” for “the blood of
Jezreel on the
House of Jehu.” Even though
Jehu did avenge the “blood of Naboth,” who was slain by Ahab and Jezebel
for his “field” in the
Valley, this “vengeance” is a gloss in
the English translations.
Almighty would not “avenge Ahab’s blood or Isabel (Jezebel)’s blood
or the blood of Ahab’s sons when He commissioned their deaths! And for
which Jehu was rewarded! When Queen Athaliah of
learned of her son, King Ahaziah’s death at
Jezreel by the hand of Jehu,
she exterminated all of the princes of Judah,
except Joash, Ahaziah’s son, who was hidden by Ahaziah’s sister,
Jehosheba, who was also the daughter of the Israelite king, Jehoram,
slain by Jehu. The wicked
queen had wanted the throne all to herself.
By extension, the “blood
of Jezreel on the House of Jehu” applied to all of the princes of Judah
as well, except Joash, through whom the
line of David would continue.
But even this does not explain the passage. Since
Hosea’s prophecy does not
begin until the reign of Jeroboam II, Jehu’s great-grandson, and this

Native American inipi
covenants with Creation
The covenant in verse 20 is accomplished in the
inipi explained in the
introduction. (See also our blog
entitled, “Goring begins with ‘horns of re’eim’ among untribed Apache”
The terms of removal of covenant in Chapter One and the promise
of restoration in Chapter Two intimately tied to animal life, peace and
environmental sanity, mandate Joseph-M’nashe’s
conditional reconciliation with Joseph-Ephraim.
Natives cannot covenant with any people who
disrespect Mama. Without
that respect, Ephraim is
incapable of respecting any life nurtured by Mama and will continue to
treat her as their personal and corporate latrines and needlessly take
the life of our four-legged and winged relatives.
Such behavior has been since the arrival of settlers and today
remains “barbaric” and “uncivilized.”
violates Hosea 2:20 covenant
As with the
House of Israel’s earlier commitment to obey
Torah, this vow is also
eternal. The terms
righteousness (tzedek) and
justice (mishpat) are used by
the prophets to refer to the benefits to the land when its inhabitants
do righteousness and justice.
Of course part of this vow pertains to violence IN the earth.
This means the practice of fracking to extract natural gas by
disintegrating gaseous rock IN the earth violates this covenant.
Fracking also violates the
Native American principle to think through anything new as to its
impact on seven generations.
In seven generations, one can expect a “super-event” to cause a
mega-quake that because of fracking could “poison” part, if not all of
the planet. Without a
covenant reminder, the pride and arrogance for which
Ephraim is infamous could
cause ruin to the living earth. (The
Hebrew word for the land is
the feminine noun, “adamah.”
In biblical Hebrew,
all entities given feminine nouns are alive and dynamic with the ability
to transmit life, grow, nurture … and if we are not careful … DIE!)
The Almighty responds
Just as Hus(h)in (Grandfather) responded to Israel to end
its Egyptian exile, Husin
promises to respond when Joseph-Ephraim
and Joseph-M’nashe set the
example for the world and reconcile.
Of course this paves the way for a greater reconciliation of the
houses of Joseph and
and Judah reconcile in the
valley of Jezreel, the Earth
responds with abundance of grain, wine and oil, the Heavens respond with
weather conducive to seed time and harvest and
Husin will respond to the
entire seed He has scattered

Husin said to me, “Go

love for the Children of Israel, yet they turn to the gods of others
and cherish goblets of grape.”
So I acquired her for myself for fifteen (pieces of) silver and a
chomer of barley and a
lesech of barley.
And I said to her, “Wait for me for many days; do not act the harlot
and do not marry a(nother) man, and so I will be faithful to you.”
For many days the Children of Israel will sit with no king, no

bridegroom as ‘one who would be called the son of God’
If there is such a thing as a celibate marriage,
3:3 defines it.
This curious relationship is explained by Orthodox
As Jeremiah 3 states,
The Almighty was forced by
His own Halachah to “put
away” the House of Israel.
No evidence of such a biblical “get”
exists for the House of Judah,
however. This means that
only one “who would be called the
son of God,” would have the authority to consummate a relationship
with the assimilation of Israel.
This may explain why the renewed covenant with the
House of Israel in its exile
and whosoever will among the
Gentiles refers to Jesus as “the bridegroom” and the Church “his
forbids both a father and his son to know the same woman or for a
betrothed wife to have the marriage consummated once she has been with
another man during the time of her betrothal … the way the
House of Israel was
unfaithful to The Almighty.
Since the language at Sinai does not reflect
nisu’im (a consummation) it
would not be forbidden for Jesus to be the groom of the assimilation of
In fact, by the precedent of the marriage of
Judah to the woman promised
to his son, Shelah, the loophole is provided that “either” a father or
his son may consummate the relationship “but not both.”
So in Hosea
Chapter 3, a celibate
marriage to the Father is decreed.
This is explained further in
Jeremiah 3, where the nature
and terminology of the relationship is changed from “Husband-wife” to
Hear the words of Husin,
O Children of Israel! For
Husin has a grievance
with the inhabitants of the land, for there is no
emet (truth) nor
hesed (kindness) nor
da’at (knowledge) of God
in the land.
(Rather) swearing, lying, murdering, robbing, and adultery; they
have breached (standards) and blood reaches (more) blood.
Therefore the land will be destroyed and all who dwell in it will be
enfeebled, along with the beast of the field and the bird of the
heavens and even the fish of the sea will be annihilated.
The overriding attribute of Abraham was
hesed or the ability to be
kind in spite of how one is treated.
Jacob brought forth the attribute of
emet, which is defined as the
Truth of Torah that will
allow one to overcome, specifically in exile. The
da’at or knowledge of God was
assigned to be taught by the priests, who
Hosea later takes to task.
Without “hesed v’emet”
or “da’at,” which included
with Isaac’s g’vurah (inner-strenghth), also define “the hearts of the
fathers,” the vices of verse 2 and the curse of verse 3 result.
This pesha (willful
sin) weakens the beasts of the field and will make extinct birds and
fish, thus the significance of the
House of Joseph making its
covenant with the animals as well. The heart of the fathers and the
implied kindness to animals combined with the
Hosea 2:20 covenant and the
knowledge of environmental threats could keep this from occurring.
Noting a fundamental principle of the

verse 2 indicates a spiritual condition in the Last Days not unlike that
which exists today. The
sage known as “Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki (1040-1105) or “Rashi” noted that
murders would be so frequent that “the blood of one victim mixed with
the blood of the next,” presumably referring to unrestrained bloodshed.
Indeed (you say) “Let no one contend; let no one reprimand! Yet your
people contends with the

My people has been eliminated
for lack of knowledge; for you have spurned knowledge, and I will
spurn you from serving Me; and as you have forgotten the Torah of
your God, I, too, will forget your children.
Torah understanding means
The priests assigned to teach
Torah are either disputed,
disdained, mocked, scorned or ignored (or in the case of Ephraim in the
altogether). Without the
understanding of Torah, a
prophet is a false prophet, since all prophecy must agree with
Torah. The vow to “silence
your mother” is interpreted by the
Jewish sage, Rabbi Dovid
Kimchi (1160-1235) known as
“Radak,” to be a metaphor for the silenced “nation.”
When individuals are exiled without the
Torah that glues them
together as a nation, the congregation ceases to exist.
It also stands that if
would return to Torah at any
time, this judgment could be lifted and
The Almighty may remember the
children of Israel.

Halachah of Orthodox Judaism
to define the ministry and mission of the “son of God” upsets the apple
cart of systematic Christian
theology. The doctrine of
“original sin,” for which the Church holds Jesus came to atone, was
never embraced in the Torah
since Grandfather made his
covenant with Abraham.
This exegesis proposed an alternative understanding
of his mission. As a
tzadik (righteous man who had
overcome his evil inclination), he was empowered to rectify the
judgments of Yizra’el, Lo-ruhamah
and Lo-ami and even
re-covenant with the “lost
sheep of the House of Israel.”
These three buzzwords and their remedy in the
infancy prophesies about Jesus offer the exegetical continuity between
“testaments” missing in Christian
systematic theology. The
prophecies about Jesus before his birth and during his infancy conclude
he would be Grandfather’s “remembrance
of His mercies for His People Yisrael,” (Luke
1-2) rectifying all three judgments but identifying his primary
mission as “the lost sheep of the
House of Israel.” (Matthew 10:6)
in Halachah offers
Ten Tribes renewed hope

Ten Tribes lost the status of

Grandfather once they became the bride of his chosen anointed (the
Christian “christ” (messiah

loophole in Halachah whose
precedent is found in the example of

Torah to remembrance and

He also commissioned his followers to be “his witnesses” of a

then Judea-Samaria (which
calls to mind the split of the Kingdom) and ultimately throughout the
