Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing (epiphany) of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;  Titus 2:13

(2) the Interim and (3) the Gospel Harvest. As above, we will study the last. Briefly, under the type of the institution of Israel's tribal judges, it refers to God's setting in the Church its teachers: the Apostles and other star-members (rulers of thousands), their special helpers (rulers of hundreds), pilgrims and auxiliary pilgrims (rulers of fifties) and elders (rulers of tens), to build the Church up in every good word and work (1 Cor. 12: 28; Eph. 4: 11-15). These judges do not type exactly the same officials as are typed by the 70 elders of Num. 11; for in vs. 13-27 all of the servants of the Church are typed, whereas in Num. 11 only certain general servants of the Church are typed. With these preliminary remarks we are ready to take up the details of vs. 13-27. Jesus' zeal for God, the Truth and the brethren moved Him not to spare Himself, but diligently care for the interests of God's people continually (Moses sat to judge the people, v. 13), and that at first without special help of others. This is more easily seen in the first application (morrow), according to which while in the flesh for a while Jesus was the only servant of the Truth, i.e., until He called to assist Him the Twelve, who were called to assist Him before the 70. However, in the outstart of the Parousia a similar condition prevailed. Many thus partook of His exclusive ministry (the people stood by Moses) throughout the time of such exclusive ministry (from morning unto the evening). God in His wisdom and might observed this condition of His overworked Son (father-in-law saw all, v. 14). And reasoning thereover He brought to Jesus' attention the fact that such was too taxing on Him (What … doest … why sittest … alone … people stand … morning unto even?).

 

(22) Our Lord, by act, gave answer (Moses said, v. 15) that the people's many needs appealed to Him to relieve them in matters pertaining to God (people … enquire of God). Elaborating, our Lord's acts declared that the varied conditions of God's people brought many problems to His attention requiring

 

332

solution (a matter, they come unto me, v. 16), and that He solved these by the Spirit, Word and providence of God (I judge between one and another), and thus taught them (make them know), the doctrines (statutes) and precepts (laws) of God. The work being too much for our Lord, God showed (father-in-law said, v. 17) that such an exclusive ministry should not be continued (thing … not good), since it was too much for Him and for the people, who would have to wait too long to be served, if it were done by one alone (wear away, both thou, and this people, v. 18), since it was too burdensome and overtaxed His powers (too heavy … not able … alone). God's pertinent acts called upon Jesus to discern their import (hearken … voice, v. 19) as His advice (counsel), following which would bring Him God's cooperation (God shall be with thee). This counsel suggested that Jesus represent the needs of God's people before God as His chief mission (Godward … bring the causes unto God). His secondary mission was to teach them (teach them, v. 20) doctrines (ordinances, literally statutes) and precepts (laws) and thus clarify to them the matters of enlightenment, justification, sanctification and deliverance (the way … walk) and the service of the Truth that they should perform (work … do).

 

(23) In accomplishing this it would be necessary for Him to select from among God's people (provide … people, v. 21), men with the necessary talents (able men), who put God first in their lives (fear God), who are fully honest (men of truth), and who abhor self-seeking (hating covetousness). These He should set in the Church as star-members (rulers of thousands), their special helpers (rulers of hundreds), pilgrims and auxiliary pilgrims (rulers of fifties) and elders (rulers of tens). These should have the general work of teaching the Church always (judge the people at all seasons, v. 22); but subjects that are not clear to them they should refer to Jesus for clarification (great matter … unto thee), but matters already clear to

 

333

them they should without further ado expound as, needed (small matter they shall judge), which would distribute the matter to the convenience of Himself (easier for thyself), and enlist their cooperation (bear … thee). God in His wisdom and might assured Him that if He would do this (do this thing, v. 23), and if God in His wisdom, justice, love and power would sanction it (God command thee so), then He would be helped to execute His office (able to endure) and lead God's people prosperously to their inheritance (people … place in peace, literally, in prosperity). Accordingly, our Lord, heeding the thing advised (hearkened to the voice, v. 24), carried out this counsel (did … said), choosing talented men (able men, v. 25) as leaders among His people (heads over, literally, for the people): star-members (rulers, literally, princes or leaders of thousands), their special helpers (of hundreds), pilgrims and auxiliary pilgrims (of fifties) and elders (of tens). These took the oversight in ministering to God's people on all occasions (judged … all seasons, v. 26), but sought from Jesus the solution of matters not understood by them (hard causes … Moses), but taught the brethren offhand matters that they understood (small matter they judged). When God had so arranged the Lord Jesus dropped the subject (Moses let … depart) and God turned to other matters (went … own land).

 

(24) The events of Ex. 18 occurred before those of Ex. 19: 1, 2, which we gather from 18: 5 (came … encamped at the mount of God). The account of Ex. 19: 1, 2 seems to be introduced to fix the chronology of the arrival at Mt. Sinai, since these verses, especially v. 1, imply that this arrival occurred on the 15th of the third month, i.e., the first day of the third actual month, after leaving Egypt, which occurred the 15th of the first month, hence 60 days later (third month … same day, v. 1). This refutes the rabbis who claim that the Law was given on Pentecost, which was 51 days after the Exodus. This third month seems to represent the seventh one-thousand-year period, the

 

334

third one-thousand-year period from the fifth, during which the symbolic Exodus set in; for Pentecost occurred 4163 A. M., hence in the fifth millennium (third month … gone forth … Egypt). Hence it was in 1874 that God's people came to the Kingdom time (came … Sinai, peaked). They had finished two experiences (Rephidim, refreshment, v. 2), those connected with the ransom and the fight against sin, and had entered into the set of experiences that preceded their coming to the Kingdom (desert of Sinai) and had trying experiences apart from the world in the condition of isolation (pitched in the wilderness); and thence they underwent trying experiences while the Kingdom was forming beyond the veil, i.e., from 1874 to 1954—1956 (camped before the mount). The Christ class had all through the Age been ascending antitypical Sinai, i.e., by carrying out their consecration they had been ascending into the condition of their obtaining the Kingdom; and this, of course, has continued during the Parousia and Epiphany (Moses went up unto God, v. 3). All the time of such ascent, but more particularly during the Jewish Harvest and the Parousia and Epiphany, God has been charging them to speak to the Jewish brethren (say … Jacob) and the Gentile brethren (tell … Israel) of God's course toward Satan's spiritual and fleshly servants (did unto the Egyptians, v. 4), of His supporting them by His Word (bare you on eagles' wings) and by His providences severing them from evil unto His fellowship and service (brought you unto myself). In view of these great benefits (therefore, v. 5), He promised to make them His special treasure (peculiar treasure) above all other classes (above all people), since the universe is His (all the earth is mine). But He put conditions to this: (1) obedience to His Word (obey my voice), and (2) faithfulness to their covenant of sacrifice (keep my covenant). Elaborating on their becoming His peculiar treasure, God told them that they would become His royal Priesthood (unto me a kingdom of priests, v. 6) and a nation consecrated to

 

335

Him wholly (an holy nation). This offer of the high calling privileges Jesus was by God charged to give the brethren all through the Age, but particularly during the Harvests (words … speak … Israel). Jesus, accordingly, made this high calling clear to the leaders of God's people (called for the elders … laid … these words which the Lord commanded him, v. 7).

 

(25) That the leaders so instructed the Lord's people we know, not only from history and observation, but from the implication of the people's making the response as shown in v. 8. And all through the Age, particularly in the Harvests, the people of God agreed to keep the covenant of sacrifice (people … said all … spoken we will do, v. 8). Their response Jesus reported to the Father, not only initially at their consecration, but at all the renewals of their consecration (returned the words … Lord). Especially in the two Harvests amid their troubles (come … thick cloud, v. 9), as promised, God spoke to our Lord (speak with thee) in the understanding of the people (people may hear). This was done to help God's people always to believe Jesus (believe thee for ever). Thereupon Jesus declared to God the consecrations of the people (told the words … Lord). Throughout the rest of the fifth 1000-year day beginning at Pentecost (today, v. 10), and all the sixth 1000-year day (tomorrow) God charged Jesus to minister sanctification to the people (go … sanctify them). He also charged Jesus to require of God's people to cleanse their conduct from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit (wash their clothes). This would make them ready (be ready, v. 11) to face the experiences that would come in the beginning of the third 1000-year day (third day); for at that time, the Parousia and Epiphany, God would give His special attention to Kingdom matters (come down … upon Mount Sinai) in most manifest and public ways, e.g., by secular and religious signs in exposures of evils in church, state, capital, labor and society, and in connection with Israel, war, revolution, anarchy, harvest gatherings and siftings, trials and tests, manifestation

 

336

of truth and error as such, separation of the Little Flock, Great Company, etc. (sight of all the people).

 

(26) God also charged Jesus to make a distinction between the people as to their relations to the Kingdom. Thus He severed the classes from one another by the peculiar teachings, activities, gatherings and siftings, belonging to each one: the Little Flock distinct from the Great Company, the Great Company from the Youthful Worthies, the Youthful Worthies from the justified, the Justified from the Campers, and the Campers from those beyond the Camp (set bounds unto the people, v. 12). The charge was to each class to keep within the bounds set for it (take heed to yourselves), and thus not grasp for powers as to the Kingdom not belonging to it (go not up into the mount), nor contaminate anything pertaining to the Kingdom either by false doctrine or wrong practice (touch the border of it). Whoever would thus contaminate Kingdom matters would die from his standing in his class: Little Flock members so doing would drop out of it into the Great Company; any of these doing it would drop out of it into second-deathers; Youthful Worthies doing it would drop out of their class into the Justified, the justified doing it would drop out of their class into Campers; and Campers doing it would drop out of their class into heathen, e.g., Mr. C. Darwin was a Camper, but laying contaminating hands on the Kingdom by his advocacy of evolution, he ceased being a Camper and became a heathen (whosoever toucheth … put to death). God prohibited any ministry that would contaminate Kingdom matters (not an hand touch it, v. 13). I f any ministry should so do, its operator should be made the target of Scriptural teachings being hurled refutatively at him (surely be stoned) or be pierced by sharp Biblical principles (shot through). If this should be a government, a state, a sharp Scriptural teaching should be used to refute it, e.g., antitypical Herod's symbolic fornication with the Romanist Church refuted

 

337

by Elijah's Letter, John's rebuke, Zechariah's rebuke (beast), or if it should be one of the many antichrist or false prophet systems, especially the great antichrist, the man of sin, it should receive the same treatment (or man). Against one and all of these, Jehovah's decree is that it should perish as such. But when the seventh trumpet (the Millennial announcements) should sound long, i.e., during its Parousia and Epiphany aspects, there should be a general assembly of the peoples, nations, kindreds and families of the earth to the Kingdom (trumpet soundeth long … to the mount, Zeph. 3: 8).

 

(27) After our Lord had received such instruction from God, He gave His attention to the people (went down … people, v. 14) performing His Gospel-Age ministry, particularly His Harvests' ministry, in separating the classes each by itself (sanctified the people), which led to each class performing the cleansing pertinent to itself (washed their clothes). Throughout the Age our Lord charged the people (said unto the people, v. 15) to be prepared for the day of God, which has proved to be the third 1000-year day touched by the Gospel Age (ready against the third day), as He also exhorted their avoiding oneness with a nominal church (come not at your wives, literally, approach not a woman). During 1874-1954, 56, the morning of the third 1000-year day (third day in the morning, v. 16), there have been great controversies, e.g., the six sifting controversies among the consecrated, the Court class and the Campers (thunders), there have been flashes of Truth on secular and religious subjects (lightnings); there have been and will be great troubles, those preliminary to the Time of Trouble and those constituting its trouble: war, revolution and anarchy, with intermingling famines and pestilences, due to the Kingdom's presence (thick cloud upon the mount); and there have been great announcements of Truth sounding very loud on all hands and subjects as Christ's message to mankind (voice of the trumpet exceeding loud). This combination of things has been

 

338

greatly troubling and frightening all the people of Christendom. (people … trembled). By this combination of things our Lord brought (Moses brought, v. 17) the people of Christendom (people out of the camp) face to face with God as to the matters on hand (to meet with God) and they set themselves in a position directly under Kingdom operations (stood at the nether part of the mount).

 

(28) The Kingdom class beyond the veil was covered with the teachings of God's wrath, with forecasts during the Parousia and with explanations of its actualities during the Epiphany (Sinai was altogether on a smoke, v. 18), because Jehovah occupied Himself with it (descended upon it) by its destruction of Satan's empire through the great tribulation (in fire). The teachings on these events were such as arise out of the great tribulation (smoke … ascended … furnace, Matt. 13: 42). And the Kingdom shook society from top to bottom in the greatest exposures, testings and revolution of all times (the whole mount quaked [shook the symbolic earth, Heb. 12: 26-29] greatly). After the Truth on secular and religious subjects had as the last trump gone forth a long time with ever increasing momentum (voice of the trumpet sounded long … louder, v. 19), the Christ class beyond the veil communed orally with God over the situation. (Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice). God then gave particular attention to the Kingdom class (came … Sinai, v. 20), particularly to the Lord Jesus as the Head of that class (top of the mount). By His Spirit, Word and providences God called upon the part of the Christ class in the flesh to make their calling and election sure and thus to pass beyond the veil and then join Jesus their Head (called … top). This they accordingly did (Moses went up). But while the faithful brethren were so doing, the evil of speculation broke out among the brethren, which moved God to charge our Lord to give His special attention to it (said unto Moses, Go down, v. 21), charging Him to command all engaging therein to

 

339

stop it (charge the people), lest each class in their attempts to overstep the limits appointed 'to their studies (lest they break through) in matters pertinent to the Lord for each class (unto the Lord) become guilty of speculation (gaze; the Latin word speculare, from which our word speculate is derived, primarily means to gaze, brazenly to look at). Speculation occurs as each class attempts to peer into things not given by their teachers of a higher class or higher classes to that class to look into.

 

(29) E.g., those outside the Camp are not of themselves to seek to unravel things that belong to outside of the Camp, the Camp, Court, Holy or Most Holy, but are to study such things as to these stages as are given them by the Divinely appointed teachers for these stages respectively; those in the Camp are not of themselves to seek to unravel the things outside the Camp, in the Camp, in the Court, in the Holy or in the Most Holy, but are to study such things as to these stages as are given to them by the Divinely appointed teachers for these stages respectively; those in the Court are not of themselves to seek to unravel the things of outside the Camp, the Camp, Court, Holy or Most Holy, but are to study such things as to outside the Camp, the Camp, Court, Holy and Most Holy as are given them by the Divinely appointed teachers for these stages respectively; those in the Holy are not of themselves to seek to unravel the things of outside the Camp, the Camp, Court, Holy and Most Holy, but are to study such things as to outside the Camp, the Camp, Curt, Holy and Most Holy as are given them by the Divinely appointed teachers for these stages respectively; and those in the Most Holy are not to seek of themselves to unravel the things of outside the Camp, Camp, Court, Holy and Most Holy, but are to study such things as to outside the Camp, Camp, Court, Holy and Most Holy as are given them by God, the Divinely ordained Teacher as to outside the Camp, Camp, Court; Holy and Most Holy. The way these matters have been carried out in practice

 

340

during the Parousia and Epiphany is this: God gives Jesus the understanding of the truths respecting these stages as due. Jesus has been giving that understanding as due to the Parousia and Epiphany messengers as they have studied the pertinent matters; and these have given them to the Priesthood, from whom they went out to the Levites, who in turn with the Priests have given it to the Campers, and who in turn with the Priests and Levites have given it to outside the Campers, for it will be noted that speculation, according to vs. 21-25, is especially prohibited during the Parousia and Epiphany.

 

(30) The prohibition to speculate has not been given to God's Parousia and Epiphany people to take away their rights and liberty, nor to make the Laodicean Messenger lords over God's heritage; but it is given for a benevolent reason: to save the individuals of the various involved classes from losing their standing in their respective classes, i.e., to prevent Little Flock brethren by speculating from falling into the Great Company, the Great Company by speculating from falling into the second death class, the Youthful Worthies by speculating from falling into the tentatively justified class, the tentatively justified by speculating from falling into the Camp class, the Campers by speculating from falling into the class outside the Camp; and the outside the Campers from falling into inventors of heathen religions, e.g., Rosenberg, the Nazi religious leader, inventing a reformed form of old German heathen religion, and others of them sinking into deeper heathenism (many of them perish). While "many" in the Parousia by speculation lost their class standings, even more of them by speculation lost their class standings in the Epiphany, as can be seen in the six siftings, especially in the sixth (Deut. 32: 30; Ps. 91: 7). And the end is not yet. Those especially in great danger to speculate during the Laodicean stage of the Church are the Priests, whose privilege it is to draw near to the Lord at the antitypical golden Candlestick, Table of

 

341

shewbread, Altar of incense and second veil, as they progress in Divine things. Therefore these have especially been exhorted by our Lord speaking especially through the Parousia and Epiphany messengers to sever themselves from the pernicious habit of speculating and devote themselves to gaining the advancing truths as these are clarified for them by these two messengers (priests … Lord, sanctify themselves, v. 22). Those who heeded this caution have been kept from falling through speculation, but those who failed so to do, the sifters and many siftlings of the Parousia and Epiphany periods, have experienced the Lord's making a breach between them and the Little Flock, i.e., experienced their casting out from the Little Flock into the Great Company, from which continuing to speculate they were dropped into the second death class. Such in not a few cases became the six slaughter-weapon men, the harvest sifters (the Lord break forth upon them).

 

(31) Knowing that those of the lower classes cannot see the things peculiar to the higher classes, our Lord answered Jehovah (Moses … Lord, v. 23) to that effect, especially that they could not perceive spiritual things of the reigning Kingdom (1 Cor. 2: 14; people cannot come … Sinai), even as God had arranged (chargedst us) that each class be limited in its insights into the things of God peculiar to its own class, especially excluding them from seeing the things of the reigning Kingdom (Set bounds about the mount), which separated it from their eyes of understanding (sanctify it). God, knowing that the attempts to "gaze," speculate, while yielding no truths to its indulgers, would abound in producing error, emphasized to our Lord the matter of giving His attention to dissuading the people of all classes from speculating (Away, get thee down, v. 24). Then Jehovah showed who during the Parousia and Epiphany might, by personal and direct Bible study, dig out of the Bible the truths about to become meat in due season; for be it noted that, as St. Paul shows

 

342

(Heb. 12: 18-21, 22-29), the scene of Ex. 19: 3-25 applies to the Parousia and Epiphany, the trouble time of this scene being Epiphaniac. This scene is not merely Parousiac; it is also Epiphaniac, as the facts of experience, as well as the Scriptures cited in the previous sentence, corroborate. By Moses our Lord is here typed; and by Aaron, for the Parousia its messenger is meant, and for the Epiphany its messenger is meant (thou, and Aaron).

 

(32) These two can do and have done such study without its being speculation, because they therein work with and under Jesus as His eye, mouth and hand (with thee). If, however, they should attempt to open an undue Scripture, they, too, would make mistakes therein and produce error, as both of them in minor details have done. The privileges of these two none others were to have; for if any of the other Priests or those of lower orders among the Lord's people should attempt to break over this barrier prohibiting for the Parousia and Epiphany personal and direct Bible study (let not the priests and the people break through to come … Lord), they would be in danger of experiencing their being cut off from their respective classes (lest he break forth upon them). Accordingly, Jesus gave His attention to this subject (Moses went down, v. 25) and warned, especially by the Parousia Messenger during the Parousia, and by the Epiphany messenger during the Epiphany, against this dangerous practice, other brethren joining with them in sounding out the warning (spake unto them). Some heeded the warning and thus were saved from the evils of speculation. Others, heady, refused to heed the warning, and thereby forfeited their several standings before the Lord, dropping into lower classes thereby, while others, fully wilful, lost all standing before the Lord, e.g., the six sifting classes and the fully wilful siftlings. Therefore we earnestly caution all of the Lord's people of all their classes to refrain from speculation, lest God make a breach—a separation from their class standing—upon them!
