Genesis 14:7

"And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar" (Genesis 14:7)
bullet

They returned: shuwb in Hebrew = "to return, to restore" <== points to a period of restoration of things (Acts 3:20-31)

bullet

Came to En-mishpat, which is Kadesh
bullet

En-mishpat
bullet

En-mishpat = "fountain of judgement"

bullet

en: fountain <== from ayin, meaning "eye" ==> judgements ==> apostolic

bullet

∴ En-mishpat: speaks of a place where judgements flow on a consistent and well-established basis

bullet

Kadesh = "holy" ==> the prophetic ==> a place imbued with prophetic holiness

bullet

∴ En-mishpat, Kadesh <== The apostolic and the prophetic are intertwined, operating in perfect harmony, combining the dynamic fluidity of the prophetic and the "foundational, establishing" nature of the apostolic, with God's judgements flowing continuously and His Presence well-established

bullet

Smote all the country of the Amalekites and the Amorites
bullet

Amalekites: those who have attacked the remnant at their weakest (Exodus 17:8-16, Deuteronomy 25:17-19, 1 Samuel 15:3)

bullet

Amorites: those made great by those attacks

bullet

In Hazezon-tamar = "dividing the date-palm"
bullet

Tamar speaks of the weak remnant carrying out prophetic intercession to forge the outbreak of God on Earth (Genesis 38) ==> Pharez = "breach" ==> the breaker anointing (Micah 2:12-13)

bullet

"dividing Tamar" <== those who have worked to cut up the weak, prophetic-intercession remnant ==> Exodus 17:10-12, Exodus 17:15 ==> Jehovah Nissi ==> the Philadelphia Spirit of God (Rev 3:7-13)

bullet

God "holds a grudge" against those who attack His prophetic remnant, His priests (Matthew 18:6-10) ==> The 6th-seal vengeance of God

 

bullet

Genesis 14:8

"And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim" (Genesis 14:8)
bullet

The 5 kings joined in the battle against God's 6th-seal avengers

bullet

The phrase "with them" in the King James version does not appear in the original text

bullet

Notice that the only evil king whose name is mentioned is "Zoar" <== a 2nd hint (besides the "Chedorlaomer hint" in Genesis 14:4-5) indicating that something was wrong
bullet

The 12+ years of abiding within the judgement atmosphere of the "vale of Siddim" had stripped these kings of many things; this is why their names (which speak of their character) are stripped by the Holy Spirit from verse 8; however, one name, the "insignificant" one ("Zoar") was left, meaning that the judgements enforced by the 4 kings was not complete, dismissing certain unrighteousness as "insignificant" and leaving it behind

bullet

The word "battle" was translated from the Hebrew word milchamah, which is better translated as "war"
bullet

The first 2 times that milchamah is ever used in Scripture is in Genesis 14 (v2 and v8); it is not used again until Exodus 1:10

bullet

The 5th time it is used is in Exodus 15:3, which declares that Jehovah is a "male of war" and that Jehovah is His "name" ("name" speaks of nature)

bullet

This illustrates the relevance of Genesis 14 in the context of God's very nature and the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth

 

bullet

Genesis 14:9

"With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five" (Genesis 14:9)
bullet

This verse emphasises the "change in priority" that had taken place in the 4 kings, with the Eagle- and Man-Face kings (Chedorlaomer and Tidal) "leaping over" the Ox- and Lion-Face kings (compare order of kings in this verse versus order in v1)
bullet

==> the prophetic anointing and the natural side of man had become more relevant than his "angelic" nature, which is essential to His coming (Jude 1:14-15)

bullet

==> the prophetic anointing over natural man had become more relevant than the expansion of God's Kingdom (which is done through His apostolic-Lion judgements and His evangelistic-Ox conquest endowment)

bullet

==> the Lion face of judgements was being relegated to last place ==> a matriarchal, non-judgement influence had surreptitiously crept in

bullet

This is the first time that the Holy Spirit explicitly compares the number of kings on one side (4) against the number of kings on the other side (5)
bullet

The number "4" is translated from the Hebrew word arba; Genesis 14:9 is only the second time arba is used to refer to the number "4" by itself; the first time is Genesis 2:10 to refer to the 4 "heads" that the river of Eden broke off into
bullet

This speaks of a single nature made up of 4 facets

bullet

"Head" speaks of Kingly Authority ==> The 4 facets are essential in establishing God's Kingship

bullet

Eden was a territory where God reigned through man, a territory from which man was to expand the Dominion of God into all the Earth (Genesis 1:26-28)

bullet

The number "5" is translated from the Hebrew word chamesh; Genesis 14:9 is the first time that chamesh is used to refer to the number "5" by itself
bullet

The word chamesh is very similar to the Hebrew word for "Ham" (cham) ==> spiritually speaking, the number "5" is very susceptible to the matriarchal, anti-judgement "Hamite" spirit

bullet

The second time chamesh is used to refer to the number "5" by itself is in Genesis 18:28, when Abraham is talking to God about the number of righteous in Sodom <== this emphasises the connection between chamesh and the Canaanite spirit of Sodom

 

bullet

Genesis 14:10

"And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain." (Genesis 14:10)
bullet

The word "slimepit" was translated from the Hebrew words beer meaning "well" and chemar meaning "bitumen"
bullet

chemar is derived from chamar meaning "to boil, foam up" <== points to "spiritual geysers" that "bubble up" from below on account of heat <== points to Balaam when he flees into the wilderness after the damage inflicted by red-horse Abel
bullet

Hence, it is no coincidence that chamar can also be translated as "to be reddened"; this is how it is translated in Psalm 75:8 ("the wine is reddened") <== the spiritual escape made by the enemy after he has been "reddened" (i.e.- worked on by the red horse)

bullet

Bitumen is black, which emphasises the connection to Balaam, since Balaam is the form that the enemy takes during the black-horse stage

bullet

chemar only appears 3 times in Scripture: Genesis 11:3, Genesis 14:10, and Exodus 2:3
bullet

Genesis 11:3 --- This verse speaks of how those who began to built the Tower of Babel used "brick for stone" and "slime for mortar" (i.e.- bitumen [chemar] for mortar) <== the brick refers to the hard-headed Girgashite "redness" of Cain, and the bitumen refers to the slimy, underhanded "blackness" of Balaam

bullet

Exodus 2:3 --- This verse speaks of how Moses' mother put Moses in an ark of papyrus reeds, daubing the ark with bitumen and pitch and placing it among the reeds by the river bank
bullet

Pharaoh was acting like a murderous Cain, murdering the young males of Israel (in the same way that the Jebusite spirit of Cain seeks to emasculate those under their control)

bullet

As Cain murders Abel, the remnant are forced to flee into the black-horse wilderness and into black-horse anonymity, which correlates with Moses "fleeing" in an ark daubed with black bitumen and pitch and becoming an "unknown"

bullet

The "fleeing" of the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah emphasises the connection to the leadership that morphs into Balaam and flees after murdering red-horse Abel during the black-horse stage

bullet

The "falling" of the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah also emphasises the connection to Balaam, since Balaam describes himself as "falling, but having his eyes open" --- Numbers 24:4, Numbers 24:16
bullet

The phrase "into a trance" added by the KJV translators in Numbers 24:4 and Numbers 24:16 does not appear in the original Hebrew text

bullet

The Hebrew word used for "falling" in Numbers 24:4 and Numbers 24:16 (naphal) is the same word used in Genesis 14:10 to describe the "fall" of the 2 matriarchal kings

bullet

∴ The bitumen wells (i.e.- the "slimepits") speak of an atmosphere of black-horse stagnation

bullet

God's 6th-seal vengeance is carried out by green-horse believers who have gone through 4th-seal Death and the difficult 5th-seal isolation period; these are the believers who have "tithed" with their very lives. However, Genesis 14:10 reveals that there was more of a "black-horse" influence at a play than a "green-horse" influence as the 4 kings tried to overtake the 5 kings; this is why the 5 kings were able to flee
bullet

It is no coincidence that the lack of a "green-horse tithe" is made evident in verse 10 of Genesis 14

bullet

Black-horse riders wear down the enemy; green-horse riders exterminate him ==> The 4 kings were behaving like black-horse (i.e.- 3rd-seal) riders when they were actually in the midst of a 6th-seal season, a season during which they had to manifest an anointing from the 4th seal and beyond

 

God willing, we will continue studying Genesis 14 in a future posting ...
