Deu 7:1  When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;

Today we will cover each nation in summary and then tie them into one beast that has seven heads. First, we must say that the number seven represents completion, and it is after the number of mankind - six. Then after the completion of man has been seen in ourselves in seven nations, we can then enter our promised land and defeat them as one united beast. This process then brings us to the next number, which is the number eight representing the new man, which is of the seven. Why is he of the seven?

How can the new man, who is holy, be of the completion of the six? Because he sees his flesh as the completion of the beast in the seven nations. The ten horns goaded the flesh into the completion of the ten commmandments testimony against him. Without this knowledge of who we are from birth, in the completed beast, we cannot go on to be the eighth; the new man. If we do not see ourselves as completed in the seven heads of the beast, then we are still trying to obtain righteousness by the very abomination the ten horns testifies about who we are. These heads of the beast are the seven nations of the old testament and are in the natural a parable of all the seven continents that have risen from the seas and upon which all of humanity lives. Upon these seven continents they live as one, the beastly abomination of the false doctrines of the world. These false doctrines are identified by name in these seven nations:

The Hittites -  are false doctrines that cause us to prostrate ourselves before man. All the doctrines that threaten violence and  cause us to be fearful, affrightened, amazed, discouraged , scared or terrify us. What are these doctrine's that causes all this confusion and terror? A Hittite is a darkened doctrine of any religion, of any teaching that causes us to focus on the flesh and not Christ. It's not just hell, but all doctrines that come from a place of terror to the man of God.

Girgashites - "dwell on a clayey soil". So what does it mean to "dwell" on clay soil? We know that the word "dwell" means to live there, stay there, be stuck on something. So, a Girgashite dwells on the clay, on the flesh. We are taught from birth to dwell on the flesh, to think on how to or how to not do things. We study the way of the flesh through Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, nature, science, or Geology - any and all things concerning the relation of it to the flesh. This is what a Girgashite is. It's any doctrine that has you looking at yourself and not at your Creator for the answers.

Amorites - are publicly avouching, boasting self, certifying self, charging -giving self command, declaring self, demanding self, determining self, naming self, publishing self, reporting self, requiring self, speaking-talking-telling of self,  and uttering self. An Amorite is said to be a mountaineer. What is a mountaineer? A mountaineer is someone who dwells in the high places of a mountain. What does a mountain represent? A mountain is a piece of the earth that rises high above the flat earth surface. It represents the power, the pride or lifting up of one's pride. This spirit exalts that which is unexaltable, worships that which is unworthy to be worshiped, and praises the unpraiseable. It dwells in the mountains, powers of the high places of our minds, heavens, where the prince of the power of our air dwells.

Canaanites - What we see from the definitions that make up the word "Canaanite" is a peddler or trafficker of humiliation; exposing others' sins by the law. This Canaanite spirit points out others' sins so they can feel better about what they know is in their own heart.

Perizzites - The Perizzite spirit lives in the "open country", inhabitant of the open country. This spirit is open before all to see and lives in this open place exalting the man's sin and his free will. Scripture says that God is in "secret" and that He rewards in the open. But the Perizzite spirit does the opposite. It sins in the open and glorifies its sin by saying it has made redemption through its free will action of turning itself around.

Hivites - A Hivite is the false church from which we think we come. We see that the church, which Eve represents, is the mother, or life giver of all. We do not see Christ, the husband as the life giver but the church. The Hivite spirit dictates things to us in the reverse order. The Hivite spirit tells us that the woman has the life, and the man is simply the donor and therefore has no rights.  It gives all glory to the church as the Creator and not Christ. My mother Babylon told me the Hivite lies; that she was the beginning of all things and as her child, I was the beginning of all my things. I was a god independent and separate from all others and they from me. I was the one who had control over the destiny of my life.

Jebusites -  Serves as bondage from Jerusalem that is below, in our earth, where the Devil has been banished, will provide nothing but "pollution, slavery, and bondage". We have just revealed our enemy, the Jubusites. They are wolves in sheep's clothing. Jebus, the root of Jebusites, is a polluted place. He comes from a place where we are entangled and in bondage to all kinds of works of the flesh to obtain the promise by the works of the flesh.

These seven nations put together as one, reads like this;

"to prostate man before man before clayey soil by publicly peddling Babylons doctrines of humiliation in open shame"

Notice that all seven of these nations are one nation in thought; one beast. Each has a different way they exalt the flesh, but it is still a beast rising from the united seven continents of the earth which God had rise from the sea.

Gen 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
Gen 1:10  And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 

The dry land is where we are created, and the dry land rises out of the seas. It is pride that God created in us which rises us above the rest of mankind, exalts ourself above the seas of mankind. It is good as it is because of this exaltation of the flesh I am afflicted. I will not cry out unless I am afflicted, and I will not be afflicted unless I exalt myself.

Psa 119:71  It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

All seven are complete in each other's doctrine, and all seven nations came from one nation, Canaan, and is where the eighth originates. When we are humiliated in the flesh by the truth of scripture, when we are void of anything good within ourselves, we are humiliated for what we saw about our own nakedness.

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.
Gen 9:26  And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
Gen 9:27  God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

All seven nations come from this one man, Canaan. This revelation gives us more insight into whom these scriptures are speaking;

Rev 17:9  And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
Rev 17:10  And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
Rev 17:11  And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

All of these nations are inward, they are what God has used to humble us and make the new man, the eighth. The new man is created in humility through the knowledge of these seven nations, the meaning of Canaan. The following parable explains it for us;

Mat 12:43  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
Mat 12:44  Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
Mat 12:45  Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

When we think we have cleaned ourselves up in religion because we were humiliated by this unclean spirit of humiliation, we become high-minded. Then God sends us seven more spirits that show us more of our corruption. This humiliates us worse than when we first began. The truth does just the opposite of what we think it should do. Then after we are humiliated by these seven other spirits, we become the eighth, the new man. "Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation", in me. These seven nations will humble us to the point where we become the eighth, the new man. This spirit of humility is unclean to me. It's foreign, not like the loud boisterous spirit to which I have grown accustom, and when the unclean spirit returns, the humiliation is completed by my acknowledgement of the complete utter corruption of every fiber of my being. From this complete destruction and the death of the old man, the new man is created. He is of the seven - OF the seven, meaning his place of origin;

ἐκ, ἐξ

It is hard for us to see the new man as a beast, but he is a beast to our old man. He devours all that we thought we were by the humbling experience of us being shown our utter corruption and uselessness in the flesh. He devours all that we have been taught as good and shows us it was a lie. This new man is Jesus Christ, and our lives are the generation in which this takes place. The Great Babylonian Whore is fallen from the beast into the judgment of God, and the new man is created. The Bride of Christ takes the place of the Whore. The following chapter and a half will explain the humiliation of the whore in us and the creation a humble heart in the Bride.

Babylon has fallen off the beast, and the seven heads that represent the seven nations are now light to us as we look back. The seven heads are now the seven golden candlesticks whereby we are enlightened;

Rev 1:12  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 
Rev 1:13  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man (the Eighth), clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

Rev 1:20  The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Before we are the seven golden candlesticks, where the Son of Man is in the midst, we are the seven nations, the seven heads of the beast. Once we are anointed with eyesalve to see, we are shown that we are the seven nations and seven heads of the beast. Then those seven natons are destroyed and become the seven candles and seven churches. The seven nations and seven heads are turned into seven candles and seven churches; not literally seven different candles and churches, but the completion of the light of the church.

Rev 3:17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Rev 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Luk 11:33  No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
Luk 11:34  The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Luk 11:35  Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
Luk 11:36  If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

While we are the seven nations and seven heads, our light is darkness as in type of each of the seven nations we went over individually.

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

When we see Christ as the Light, our whole body, the whole church is full of light.

Joh 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

This means all glory goes to Christ Who is in the midst of my temple. The seven nations of darkness are recreated in our eyes as the seven golden candlesticks that give us light, as we look back at what Christ created through those very evil nations.

Rom 8:27  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
Rom 8:28  And we know (looking back) that all things work together for good (becomes light) to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The seven nations were created for our good. Without them we would be proud and empty and never know it. All seven nations are important for our learning and important for us being recreated as the seven churches, the completion of the Christ, the Bride of Christ. After we become the Eighth, we become the ninth - God's judgment by the tenth - completion of the flesh which leads us to eleven - the disintegration of the perfection of the flesh, that sets up the Christ, twelve - the establishment of the government of God.

Next week, LORD willing, we will cover Deuteronomy 7:1-5 now that we know who these seven nations are and what we are supposed to do to them.

Deu 7:1  When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
Deu 7:2  And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:
Deu 7:3  Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
Deu 7:4  For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.
Deu 7:5  But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.
