Deu 2:19-23 What's In A Name?

Deu 2:19 And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.
Deu 2:20 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
Deu 2:21 A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead:
Deu 2:22 As he did to the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, when he destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead even unto this day:
Deu 2:23 And the Avims which dwelt in Hazerim, even unto Azzah, the Caphtorims, which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed them, and dwelt in their stead.)

Last week we studied these verses and learned there is a land of the Moabites, and there is a land of the Israelites. You cannot have one without the other. Each land has its own language; one is from the perspective of Moab/Ammon (freewill thinking and still in darkness) and one is from the perspective of Israel (God is Sovereign King and LORD over all things). In going over these names, peoples and nations, it is brought out more about exactly who these people are by definition. A name is NOT JUST A NAME. Every name has a meaning to it whether we know it or not. Just as God has a name, whether you know it or not. So having said that, let's get into naming the names of these people, nations and lands.

The first name we are going to discuss is Ammon ;

Put them together and you have AN INBRED PEOPLE THAT OVERSHADOW THE LAND BY HUDDLING TOGETHER. This is us as the old man. As a sinful people, we flock together as an unclean flock of birds under the same false doctrine. We herd together as beasts of the field, like in the African Serengeti as they herd together for protection from the Lion... of the tride of Judah; Whose roar sends shivers down their spine. But the Ammonites are a doctrine that every human being ever brought into this world starts off believing - they are gods and are freewill gods able to map out their own paths in life. The definition of "inbred" means that they are producing children from their own direct family, producing children with deformities.

We know from scripture that the earth is the apostatized people of God, US. We are the apostatized earth or land in this case.;

Jer 22:29 O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.

The root of Lot's name exposes what we do and what God's plan is;

Isa 25:7 And he will destroyH1104 [H8765] in this mountainH2022 the faceH6440 of the coveringH3875 cast overH3874 [H8802] all peopleH5971, and the vailH4541 that is spreadH5259 [H8803] over all nationsH1471.

God will destroy LOT that is spread over all nations, Lot is represented by the Ammons, the incestous child from Lot's own daughter. This son is spread over all nations as a vail in the false doctrine of freewill. This is accounted as a giant also in the land.

"...(That also was accounted a land of giants..."

Our land is being INVIGORATED by the INBRED PEOPLE THAT OVERSHADOW THE LAND BY HUDDLING TOGETHER, the Ammorite covering (Lot) our sin to CURE our land from what we see as the intriquing evil plan of God. Before our eyes are open and we are enlightened by the lifting off the veil of the old man, exposing who his inbred children are, we see God as the giant in our land. His doctrine must be defeated or killed so that we can possess the land for ourselves. We are the husbandmen who kill the servants/doctrines of truth and then kill the Truth itself, the Son.

Mat 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
Mat 21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it (this is destroying the doctrines of truth sent to us in our unconverted state, still as Ammonites).
Mat 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
Mat 21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
Mat 21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
Mat 21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
Mat 21:39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
Mat 21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

"... A people great, and many, and tall..."

Zep 2:8 I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border.
Zep 2:9 Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.
Zep 2:10 This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the LORD of hosts.

This verse brings out so much. Our old man is Gomorrah that BREEDS INCESTUOUS nettles and saltpits. The word "breeding" means a possession H4476 from H4943 STEWARD. Remember our parable of how we are given possession as stewards of God's land until the harvest. Until the time was come to give the glory to God, we instead claim our sin, our trials, our covering, our redemption. We claim it all by producing inbred doctrines that have intercourse with other inbred doctrines all based on self-love and self-glorification. God is not given credit for one thing, but that He "helped" us at times, but ultimately we were the sinners of ourselves and redeemers of ourselves. We have spiritually inbred children, which are doctrines, and used those doctrines to go along with all other doctrines, to agree to disagree, to agree on the essentials that we are free moral agents with a freewill. All other nations of people will agree with this doctrine because it JUDGES NO ONE.

"... A people great, and many, and tall,..."

The definition of this word "many" unveils of whom it is speaking, the "prince" of this land, who is overshadowed by the darkness of the people, huddled together for the purpose of covering their sin of inbreeding, iniquity, thereby curing themselves, the goal of the prince. He controls this multitude in us by having us indoctrinated from birth as His children believing in freewill (Eph 2:2, Jer 39:12-13). This IS THE GIANT OF ALL LANDS IN US AND OUTWARDLY, TALLER THAN ALL OTHER DOCTRINES.

The word of God is to be seen as is, was and will be. But it shall be seen as is, was, will be today. Today is the day of salvation (Heb 3:13), we are not promised tomorrow (Mat 6:34), and yesterday is gone. To hold on to the good we think we done yesterday that it may equal out the evil we do today is itself sin. For we do not know what tomorrow holds, and if we believe we are equaling out our good and evil we are breeding worms, for we are lifting up ourselves, THE WORM.

Job 25:6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

When we exalt ourselves we are exalting our works as though they are ours, we gather the truth , not , the truth has been given to us. This is the meaning in Exodus.

Exo 16:14 And when IT had covered the face of the earth, it appeared in the wilderness small, and as it were beaten with a pestle, like unto the hoar frost on the ground. (DRB)
Exo 16:15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat. (The "it" is the manna, and the manna is Christ) DRB translation.
Exo 16:19 And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
Exo 16:20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

What we are to learn from not keeping CHRIST until tomorrow is, we are not to become highminded - TALL as these giants in our own minds, like the false doctrine, once saved, always saved. When we think that we have gathered things that others haven't or gathered enough yesterday of good works that should last until tomorrow, we have become tall giants like the Anakims and Zamzummims. We must be Christ every day by dying every day to the giants and people of our land (1Co 15:31).

So putting the name Anakims together, back to its primitive root, we understand by definition that it means that they are a people or doctrine that is a strangling adorned knecklace chain around the neck. It must be around the neck to choke. It also brings out in this verse what I had not been able to see in the previous lesson; that the land which the Ammonites possessed was the land which the Zamzummims possessed that were "AS" G5618 "the Anakims". The Anakims and the Zamzummims are seen as the same people as the definition for "AS" in this verse from the Apostolic Bible Polyglot brings out;

Deu 2:21 [4nationG1484 1a greatG3173 2andG2532 3populous],G4183 andG2532 mightierG1415 than you,G1473 asG5618 alsoG2532 theG3588 Anakim;G* andG2532 [2destroyedG622 3themG1473 1 the LORD]G2962 beforeG575 their face,G4383 G1473 andG2532 they inheritedG2624.1 them;G1473 andG2532 they were settled thereG2733.1 in placeG473 of themG1473 untilG2193 G3588 this day,G2250 G3778

And to get a witness from scripture to validate it we read ;

Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

So the Zamzummims and the Anakims are seen as the same giants, which means they all came from the Canaanites, which the name Anakim brings out. Of course the Israelites are there to possess the land of Canaan, their promised land.

Why is this fact important to us? Because where do the Canaanites come from? They are from Canaan. Where does Canaan, their father, come from? He comes from Ham. Who is Ham and where does he come from? He is the son of Noah that exposed Noah's nakedness, and therefore his lineage was cursed from his son CANAAN forward.

Gen 9:20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
Gen 9:21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
Gen 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
Gen 9:23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
Gen 9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
Gen 9:25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

And Ham's father was Noah, WHO, after the flood, became a "HUSBANDMAN". Remember who was a husbandman;

The evil husbandmen who killed the servants of the King and murdered His Son - THAT'S US - WE ARE NOAH, his son Canaan, Canaans descendants the Anakims, the Ammorites, and then we become Israel when the true Husbandman comes and harvests our fruit. How is the fruit harvested? By the death of the Seed.

So Noah the husbandman, in the negative, cursed his son Ham for exposing his sin, his nakedness. Then as the evil husbandman, he blesses his older sons for covering his sin. This is what the old man does, he blesses those who bless him and curses them who curse him. Ham's son, whose name is Canaan, who was the one who Noah (Babylon) cursed for exposing his father's nakedness, ends up in the land which is now called by his name, the land of Canaan. This is the promised land. This promised land was so BLESSED by the curse's death that it produced a cluster of grapes so big that it had to be carried by two men on a rod.

So to get a clear picture of the outline of God's plan by using the definition of the names of these people we will spell it out by definition, not using names.

Noah = Rest - H5146; Ham = hot or enflame self-H2526; Shem = name-H8035; Japheth = deluded- H3315; Canaan = humiliation-H3667; Israel = H3478-he will rule as God.

Rest awakes from his drunkiness and realizes that Enflamed self had exposed his sin of getting drunk on his own works and that the sin was Deluded by covering it up by calling it a different Name. Rest then curses Enflame self's descendants, Humiliating them to a lifetime of servitude for exposing Rest's sin. Humiliation then settles in the earth, where by his humiliation they bring about the harvest of a grape cluster so big that it has to be carried on a rod by two men. This very land of Humiliation is the very land where Name's descendants will rule as God, settles and reaps the rewards of HUMILIATION.

All of this is saying that God has had a plan from the beginning, and it is not what we ever thought it was. Because His plan, if explained in truth to the carnal Ammonite, will be cursed and ridiculed as an evil plan. But what God has planned is so veiled in secrecy that none can know it except those to whom He reveals it. Even as Israelites, we are so meshed together in false doctrines that none of us can ever dig ourselves out of this pit called hell. God has predestined it that way so that when He reveals the truth to us, we cannot but see that it was all Him, it is all Him and it will always be Him. Whatever we know or don't know is because the True Husbandman has hedged us in so we cannot go past what He has planned.

Ecc 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, SO THAT NO MAN can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

Job 15:8 Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?

Isa 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Rom 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

Pro 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

It is honouring to God for the Christ to search out Who their Father is. As this small ragtag body that has no comeliness that some may seek after (Isa 53:2), we are given secret treasures that have been kept from the millions if not billions of people who have ever lived. This secret of exactly Who Christ is has been hidden under the shadows of the masses' false doctrines that are huddled together under the same principle - that men are born free moral agents separate and independent from God. But we have been given the truth and have been called and then chosen in the predestined plan of God to bring Him glory. May God our Father give us the desire to search out His truth and give it to each other so that we as a body may grow into an adult.
