The True Rebirth
          Part II

The Southland


          "Let the LORD, the GOD of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,

          "Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd."

Numbers 27:16-17
Isaiah 49:5-6

          When He Was Set Up:  Like John was brought forth before Jesus (John 1:15,27; Luke 1:13-17,76-80), the Human Shepherd has been brought forth before the Southland separates from the North.   That is:

          "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet (the Human Shepherd) before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD (which began in the Spring of 1996 AD)."

Malachi 4:5
I Samuel 2:35-36
Psalm 110:5-7

          The Human Shepherd of the Congregation was anointed 40 years before the Solemn Assembly (Micah 7:15; Psalm 45:7; Leviticus 23:36,39; Nehemiah 8:18; Colossians 2:16-17)(i.e. 6022 minus 40 equals 5982; 5982 minus 4004 equals spring 1978 AD).   This 40 year interval is the second great Exodus and the Human Shepherd, like Moses, will lead the gathering (Jeremiah 16:14-15; 23:7-8).

          The Human Shepherd was brought forth before the gathering of true Israel (the Congregation) to lead the gathering in preparation for the glorious Solemn Assembly (Zephaniah 3:18; Isaiah 49:5-6; 49:1-12).

          His Duties And Responsibilities:

          "Behold, I send an Angel (the Human Shepherd) before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

          "Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for My name is in him (i.e. he is Jehovah-Tsidkenu: Jeremiah 23:5-6; 33:15-16)."

Exodus 23:20-21
(See: 23:20-25)
Deuteronomy 18:18-19

          The Human Shepherd has been established as a prophet (Jeremiah 1:5; Isaiah 49:2; Deuteronomy 18:18; Malachi 4:5), as a witness (Isaiah 55:4), as a messenger (Malachi 3:1-3; Exodus 23:20-21), as a leader and commander to the people (Isaiah 55:4; 66:2; Jeremiah 30:9,21; Psalm 89:19-37), as a watchman (Ezekiel 3:17-21; 33:1-6; Genesis 49:1,24), as a shepherd (Ezekiel 34:23; Genesis 49:1,24), as the human high priest unto GOD (Zechariah 3:1-10; 6:13).

          "Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people."

Isaiah 55:4; 42:6-7

          His myriad tasks are described throughout Scripture including Isaiah 61:1-4; Luke 4:18-19; Isaiah 49:5-6,8-9; Psalm 110:5-7; Jeremiah 1:4-10).

          "The spirit of the LORD GOD (GOD Almighty) is upon me (the Human Shepherd); because the LORD (Jesus at the right hand of GOD:  Psalm 110:1-4) hath anointed me (1) to preach good tidings unto the meek (those who will hear:  Revelation 7:1-17; 19:7-9; Zephaniah 3:14-20; Isaiah 4:2-6; Jeremiah 23:3-8); He hath sent me (2) to bind up the brokenhearted, (3) to proclaim liberty to the captives (Leviticus 25:8-10; Genesis 6:3; Isaiah 38:8; Zephaniah 3:18), and (4) the opening of the prison to them that are bound (Isaiah 59:15; 42:6-7; 49:9; 51:21-23; Ezekiel 34:8,28; Nahum 1:12; Jeremiah 30:8-9).

          "(5) To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD (The LORD'S Day that began in the Spring of 1996 AD), and (6) the day of vengeance of our GOD (the 1500 year interval that began with The LORD'S Day; Daniel 7:25; Revelation 12:14); (7) to comfort all that mourn (John 16:7-16);

          "(8) To appoint (to set things in order) unto them that mourn in Zion, (9) to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the Spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified.

          "And they (the Congregation) shall build the old wastes (restore righteousness), they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations."

Isaiah 61:1-4
(See: 61:1-11)
Jeremiah 31:31-34

          In Scripture horses and chariots symbolize vehicles for conveying afflictions; and, the Scriptures are that two-edged sword that cuts and slashes the disobedient.   In turn, the Human Shepherd has been sent forth as the rider on the white horse identified as the First Seal:

          "And I saw, and behold a white horse:  and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him:  and he went forth conquering, and to conquer (and the first seal persists for the full 35 years of tribulations)."

Revelation 6:2

          As Jeremiah, the Human Shepherd, was reluctant to act but was instructed to get with it (Jeremiah 1:4-10):

          "See I (GOD) have this day set thee over the nations (gôy also translated people, heathen, and Gentiles; Scripture includes everyone dwelling in the North and even ancient Israel*) and over the Kingdoms, to root out, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant."

Jeremiah 1:10
(See:  1:4-10)
Psalm 110:5-7
I Samuel 2:35-36

          [* Gôy is normally used in conjunction with another word in Scripture:  for example, Joshua 3:17; 4:1; 5:6,8; 10:13; Judges 2:20; Joel 3:8; Zephaniah 2:9; Zechariah 12:3.   Also: II Kings 6:18; Jeremiah 5:15; Daniel 11:23.].

          Patriarchs And Prophets Prefigure The Human Shepherd:  Yes, their lives, characteristics, and profiles describe the Human Shepherd just as do the blessings attributed to both Jacob (Israel) (Genesis 49:1,22-26) and Moses (Deuternonomy 33:1,13-17).   Even Deborah, symbolizing GOD'S Holy Ark, speaks of Joseph's youngest son, Ephraim, as opposing Amalek the afflicter (Judges 5:14); whereas, those who fail to help are cursed (Judges 5:23; Exodus 23:20-25; Psalm 94:16).   Isaac's blessings upon Joseph's sons, Manasseh and Ephraim, placed Ephraim, the youngest, above Manasseh to make Ephraim as the firstborn, the true heir to the name, blessings, and title "Israel" (Genesis 48:15-20; Exodus 4:22-23; Isaiah 41:8-11; Jeremiah 31:9).

          Today, people can readily view blessings upon Joseph.   The most obvious are Manasseh's blessings upon the USA and Europe especially throughout the 1950's thru the 1990's and beyond.   Ephraim's blessings are to come upon the glorious Congregation as The LORD'S Day progresses (Deuteronomy 28:1-14).   Ephraim's blessings, of course, will far exceed the most stupendous dreams and imaginations of humanity.   Again, blessings upon Ephraim, the youngest son, come later and come upon the gathering of the Holy Congregation, true Israel.   Note also, blessings upon Manasseh, the eldest son, arrived first before Ephraim's blessings; but, Ephraim's blessings are to be far greater.

          Therefore, like the name's and attributes of Abraham, Issac, Jacob (Israel) accrue to Joseph (Genesis 48:15-16), the names and heritage of all the ancient patriarchs and prophets accrue to the Human Shepherd of the Congregation.

          Afflictions, Broken Bones, Sins And Iniquities:  Being prefigured by the ancient patriarchs and prophets is not all "peaches and cream."   Being prefigured by Job, Jeremiah, and David, for example, results in severe afflictions that none in their right mind would seek.   Job 1:1 thru 3:26 explains that all that Job possessed was taken from him, Satan was authorized to afflict Job but not allowed to kill him.   And even Job's three friends (prefiguring the Jews, Christians, and Moslems) denounced Job's every word even though Job was right and they were wrong (Job 42:7).   Similarly, Jeremiah's afflictions (Lamentations 3:1-21) even describe the Human Shepherd's broken bones (Lamentations 3:4; Job 2:5; Isaiah 44:21-23).   As, "David" even after his anointing (Psalm 89:19-37) the Human Shepherd faced even further afflictions added to his already tumultuous life (Psalm 89:38-52; 88:1-18).

          As Joshua, the Human Shepherd has been lifted from his sins and iniquities and made human High Priest of the gathering (Zechariah 3:1-10).   And, Daniel, even though King Belshazzar's Queen (symbolizing the Congregation) recognized Daniel's expertise in wisdom especially with respect to the Word of GOD (Daniel 5:9-12), "Daniel" was cast into the lions' den symbolizing this unrighteous world (Daniel 6:16).

          Thus, although the Human Shepherd may have many attributes possessed by Jesus Christ, the Human Shepherd is Jesus' servant, has had broken bones, and has been lifted from his sins and iniquities so he definitely cannot be confused with Jesus Christ who had neither broken bones nor sins and iniquities.

          He Is A Special Sign:  As rightful custodian of GOD'S Holy Ark, the Human Shepherd is "a sign."   That is, when GOD'S Holy Ark is freed from captivity (Zechariah 5:4) the Shepherd is to say "I am your sign" as he carries the Holy Ark forth from its hiding place (Ezekiel 12:6,11; 24:24,27).   Even the Koran reiterates that the Human Shepherd is a sign (Sura 2:248).   But, it is not until GOD'S Holy Ark commences and later completes its journey across the Atlantic (prefigured by the River Jordan) that GOD begins to magnify the Human Shepherd in the eyes of all true Israel (Joshua 3:7; 4:14; 3:1-17; 4:1-18).

          The Human Shepherd's Wives:  Since ancient patriarchs and prophets prefigure the Human Shepherd, an interesting consideration is that he may have multiple wives.   That is, the early patriarchs had multiple wives and concubines.   For example:  Gideon (Judges 8:30), Jacob (Israel)(Genesis 35:23-26), and David (I Samuel 25:43-44; II Samuel 2:2; 19:5; I Chronicles 3:1-9).   And, a wife's duties are not diminished when her husband takes an additional wife (Exodus 21:10).

          Therefore, with respect to the Human Shepherd, his wives become Queens over all the world and one will be chosen as chief or Queen of his Queens.

          Note:  Paul's writings which refer to a husband having only one wife refer to the choice between Jesus or Satan, the right or left, not both (I Timothy 3:2,12; Titus 1:6).   Indeed, Scripture has not changed (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:5-6; Matthew 5:17-19; Revelation 22:18-19).   His Word shall never pass away (Matthew 24:35-36).   So, beware of those wresting with the Word (II Peter 3:14-17) who seek to change the truth of GOD into a lie (Romans 1:25).

          Remember, a temporary marriage begins with a betrothal wherein the maiden's father gives her unto her husband.   This betrothal may last up to seven years wherein the groom has three options (Exodus 21:2,7-11).   Meanwhile, that marriage may be consummated, made permanent, when the husband enters the virgin.

          Note that the maiden has but one virginity and therefore can have but one legitimate husband.   However, the man may enter several virgins and therefore have several wives.   This is a microcosm of the eternal marriage of the Congregation wherein the Messiah acquires multiple wives (Revelation 19:7-9).

          Indeed, marriage pursuant to GOD'S laws is a very interesting situation.   The man always remains in his father's lineage.   However, the maiden essentially divorces (separates) from her family and is grafted into her husband's lineage be he good or evil, rich or poor, etc.   Therefore, the wise maid and her father should choose wisely.

          Also, a betrothal may begin without the potential husband's knowledge or consent.   The male then has the options of accepting or rejecting the maiden, giving her to his son, or making the marriage permanent.   Similarly, everyone should betroth themselves to GOD by their obedience and pray that GOD accepts them (Hosea 2:19-20).   GOD Almighty then gives His Betrothed (virgin) Wife unto His Son on Atonement Year (Exodus 21:9; Daniel 7:13-14; Revelation 11:15; 14:1-5).   Later that marriage is consummated on the glorious Solemn Assembly (Zephaniah 3:18; Revelation 19:7-9).   Checkout GOD'S Marriage Laws.

          The Shepherd's Beard:  In addition to the Human Shepherd's knowledge and understanding of Scripture and his role as the rightful custodian of GOD'S Holy Ark (Genesis 49:1,24; Isaiah 40:5; 29:6; Habakkuk 2:14; Zechariah 5:9-11; Nahum 2:7) whereby he becomes a rather obvious sign unto all true Israelites, Scripture provides other identifying features including:

He will have a full beard and uncut hair.

          That is, Scripture admonishes men:

          "Ye shall not round the corners of your heads (no haircuts), neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard."

Leviticus 19:27; 21:5

          "The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness."

Proverbs 16:31

          Remember, when Hanun cut off the beards of David's men they were ashamed and were told to tarry in Jericho until their beards be grown (II Samuel 10:4-5).

          However, in these End Times, Scripture forewarns that all Moab, the incestuous lineage of Lot, are to be balded and shaven:

          "... on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off."

Isaiah 15:1-2;
Jeremiah 48:36-37;
47:5; 9:26

          Speaking of King Nebuchadnezzar's (Satan's) great army:  "... every head was made bald" (Ezekiel 29:18).   Tyrus' (Satan's) servants:  "... shall make themselves utterly bald for thee (Satan)..." (Ezekiel 27:31).   Yes, those serving the King of Assyria (Satan):  "In the same day shall the LORD shave with a razor that is hired ... the head, and the hair of the feet:  and it (the razor) shall also consume the beard" (Isaiah 7:20).   Today men everywhere shave off their male facial hair to wear the hair of women (i.e. no male facial hair)(Isaiah 19:16; 32:9-11; Revelation 9:8; Jeremiah 50:37; 51:30).   Whereas, others shave their face excepting the mustache that covers the upper lip, a sign of the leper (Leviticus 13:45).   Elisha because of his baldness was even mocked by the children (II Kings 2:23).

          The Religious beast, instead of relying on the Word, Jesus Christ (Revelation 19:13), promotes a lie about nature, that nature tells them that it is a shame for a man to have long hair.   However, if men stop shaving and shearing nature is content and the hair of the head and beard stop growing beyond a point.   So, the proper answer to Paul's question is a resounding "No!   Nature does not tell men that it is a shame for men to have long hair" (I Corinthians 11:14).

          Signs are everywhere.   For another example, why do men wear Judas' noose around their necks complete with slip knot?   They call it a necktie as its bright colors shout out "Look at me!"

Josiah's Birth


  • Josiah's Birth Year
    (1928-1929 AD Spring To Spring).


  • Jeremiah's 23rd Year.
  • Josiah Was Age 12 In His 13th Year.
  • The 23rd And 13th Years Ended In The Spring Of 1941 AD.


  • The Human Shepherd
    Reached Age 70
    (1998-1999 AD Spring To Spring).

          The Birth Of The Human Shepherd:

          "... Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name..."

I Kings 13:2

          "From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon King of Judah, even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year (of Jeremiah's 70 years), the word of the LORD hath come unto me (Jeremiah), and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not hearkened."

Jeremiah 25:3

          For those interested, a series of figures (10c thru 10f) now explain one avenue of Biblical references that link Jeremiah's 70 years to the modern calendar.   To this one may add other Biblical time bridges (6000 years of Jubilees, Daniel's 2300 years, Daniel's 1290 and 1335 years, etc.).   In addition, the 35 years of severe tribulations, GOD'S Holy Days, the half hour (21 year) pause, the final 42 year-hour, moving the dial, etc. further explain things and help tie matters together.   So, as these End Times progress, the wise will pay heed to the parable of the fig tree which has admonished people to learn that parable.   Today, the leaves (the various pieces) are filling out that fig tree.
