Deuteronomy – Deu 33:7  And this is the Blessing of Judah

[Study Aired January 7, 2021]

Deu 33:7  And this is the blessing of Judah: and he said, Hear, LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring him unto his people: let his hands be sufficient for him; and be thou an help to him from his enemies. 

We know that Christ came through the tribe of Judah in the flesh.

Heb 7:14  For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

What that means spiritually is that the carnal law of the flesh does not apply to those that are in Christ. They are not under the dominion of that law. Our priest is Christ, not Aaron.

Rom 6:14  For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Rom 7:24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? [The body of this death is the law of the flesh, the first husband of Romans 7:1-6, Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.  So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. But now we are delivered from the lawthat being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.]
Rom 7:25  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Rom 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Rom 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. [body of death, the first husband]
Rom 8:3  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Rom 8:4  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

The purpose of the law of the flesh was to remove the covering of the false idea that we were perfected independently from God. The law was given to make the sin of self-righteousness abound. First, it detailed the sins of the flesh, and then we made it a covering for those sins by a carnal commandment. It made us see who and what we were in the flesh from the creation and by the Creator. Then it said, “This is what you do in the flesh, and it is wrong, so if you follow this carnal law you can make yourself right before God”. That law of the flesh is in all mankind and is the body of death.

Rom 2:13  (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. [which none can do]
Rom 2:14  For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Rom 2:15  Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another

I am convicted by the law of the flesh, and I am freed by the law of the spirit. Both are telling me that I can make myself evil or make myself good. It is the eating of the knowledge of good and evil (which is in the Qal stem; is, was and will be).

Gen 3:6  And when the woman saw [H8799-Qal stem] that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took [H8799] of the fruit thereof, and did eat [H8799], and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat [H8799].

When I used to read Romans 2:15, I saw what the gentiles were doing as a good thing; they were able to discern between good and evil. In reality, it isn’t though. It’s a bad thing because they/we think they can accuse or excuse themselves/ourselves by the carnal commandment of do’s and don’t’s.

Rom 2:12  For as many as have sinned without law [gentile] shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law [Jew] shall be judged by the law;
Rom 2:13  (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

We know that no one can be a doer of the law because the law was not given for us to be a doer of it. It was given to show us that we could not be a doer of it. It was given to expose what we are and kill our self confidence in our flesh. The law according to the Levitical priesthood could never cleanse us from what the law of the flesh said we were. It took a different type of sacrifice from a different Priest, Who is cleansing us by a different law – the law of the spirit. This law does not come through genealogy, neither is it based on lineage, NOR IS IT BASED ON FLESH!

This is the understanding we are to get from learning that Christ did not come through the lineage of Levi but through Judah. This does not change the priesthood from Levi to Judah, but rather does away with lineage altogether. Judah’s lineage is nothing to be proud of, and it is for this reason Christ physically comes through it. This is the new way, without genealogy, without lineage, a more excellent way.

1Co 1:18  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. [because flesh is not involved]
1Co 1:19  For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1Co 1:20  Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1Co 1:21  For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. [God used the foolishness of the gospel to save, and in this foolishness the wisdom of God is revealed and the wise of this world blinded.]
1Co 1:22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: [Jew and Greek in us, not out there]
1Co 1:23  But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1Co 1:24  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1Co 1:25  Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1Co 1:26  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Co 1:27  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1Co 1:29  That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1Co 1:30  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Co 1:31  That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

In our verse today it says, “…Hear, LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring Him unto His people…”. This is not speaking of literal Judah but about Christ. This “bringing” is in the CAUSATIVE ACTION OF QAL, which means that God is the cause of Christ continually being brought to our hearts and minds. Christ is revealed to us by the causative action of God in Christ. Christ reveals Himself to us and this is the fulfilling of the prophesy, “…bring Him unto His people…”. God has, is and will bring Christ to His people. God will reveal who we are when Christ opens the little book and brings us through faith, the wisdom of God.

Rev 5:1  And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
Rev 5:2  And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Rev 5:3  And no man in heaven, nor in earth [my heavens and my earth], neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
Rev 5:4  And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
Rev 5:5  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Rev 5:6  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Rev 5:7  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
Rev 5:8  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
Rev 5:9  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Rev 5:10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Rev 5:11  And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
Rev 5:12  Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
Rev 5:13  And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Rev 5:14  And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.”

Once Christ is brought to us, to our city of Jerusalem in the flesh, He begins to ride through it destroying all that the flesh thinks belongs to it. He then conquers the city we are and begins to rebuild it as the New Jerusalem. We then begin to see what we learned in the last study:

Our eyes being opened is the beginning of the four horsemen, who begin riding through our lives destroying all that the flesh believes it is, was and will be. A few years before The LORD began dragging me to the truth I had spent a year or better researching my lineage. I had learned through DNA testing, what I had already knew, that my real last name was not Crabtree but Pedigo. My Dad was given the last name Crabtree because that was his mother’s married name at that time. The truth was that his real Dad’s name was “Willard Pedigo”, who was married to my grandmother’s sister. After confirming, what the family had known all these years but kept quiet, I began doing a search into my heritage. It landed me back to my 10th great-grandfather, who history has named “Edward Grand Sire Pedigo”, because He was the beginning of the Pedigo name in America. He was one of only 30 people who survived, besides George Washington, in the battle of Fort Duquesne, just before the Revolutionary war against England began. During the Revolutionary war he fought with Washington at Valley Forge and so on and so on until they moved to Kentucky in the early 1800’s. Soon after learning this fleshly knowledge, the Lion of the tribe of Judah came to me and opened the book that my fleshly knowledge could not. When I began seeing the book, I wept much, because no man in me, not even the knowledge of “Edward Grand Sire Pedigo”, could open up to me the knowledge of my life. Then the Lion of the tribe of Judah started opening the book, and I began seeing the four horsemen which began riding through my life.

Rev 6:1  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
Rev 6:2  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.
Rev 6:3  And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
Rev 6:4  And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
Rev 6:5  And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
Rev 6:6  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
Rev 6:7  And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
Rev 6:8  And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

When we are given to begin seeing what the truth of scripture is saying, it all relates back to the beginning, and that beginning is the end – Revelation. Revelation is the beginning because it is in the Revelation of Christ we begin to see the beginning of it all. This is the blessing of Judah and the bringing of Christ to His people. It takes it out of the hands of the law of the flesh; out of the religious hands of Satan and Babylon, out of the hands of pedigree, which in turn takes it out of my hands. In the end, as our scripture today says:

Deu 33:7  And this is the blessing of Judah: and he said, (1)Hear, LORD, the voice of Judah, and (2) bring him unto his people:(3) let his hands be sufficient for him; and (4) be thou an help to him from his enemies

Four things, as the Four horsemen, are the whole of the blessing of Judah when the book in the hand of the angel is opened by the Lion of the tribe of Judah. That book is the Revelation of Jesus Christ in our lives. Not our book, but His book, for we are in His Book, the Book of Life.

Rev 20:12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. [The book of life is the same book in Revelation 5 that only the Lion of the tribe of Judah could open. That book is only able to opened by Christ for He is LIFE. Only the elect in this age have this book read to them, for this book is their life.]

Rev 20:13  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. [what was written in their books]
Rev 20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Rev 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
