Isaiah 8:14 … Messiah revealed

14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Breaking it down in the original Hebrew….

14 And he {Yeshua} shall be for a sanctuary H4720; but for a stone H68 of stumbling H5063 and for a rock H6697 of offence H4383 to both H8147 the houses H1004 of Israel H3478, for a gin H6341 and for a snare H4170 to the inhabitants H3427 of Jerusalem H3389.

H68 אֶבֶן ‘eben (eh’-ɓen) n-f. from the root of H1129 through the meaning to build or establish

H3389 יְרוּשָׁלִַם Yruwshalaim (yer-oo-shaw-lah’-im) n/l. the capital city of Israel, and Holy City of the new creation

This is my understanding of the verse….

  1. Notice how verse 14 states ‘for both houses of Israel’! We know who Judah is. But, who is the other house of Israel? The northern kingdom (Israel, Ephraim in Scripture)? There are only two groups who believe the Bible: Christians and Jews. Do the math. Time to come back to your roots Ephraim a/k/a Israel, a/k/a lost 10 tribes, a/k/a gentiles, a/k/a Christians, and all who join to them. Messiah didn’t speak against the instructions of the Most High, he battled the manmade rules and traditions of his day. We are following in his footsteps and doing the same! Doctrines of men must not usurp the commands of the Creator! We are awake and we will stand firm! Revelation 12:17 and 14:12 have been ignored because they contradict the doctrines of men! Time to learn the truth.
