1 Sing, O barren [akarah], thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate [ rabbim bnei shome'mah] than the children of the married wife [bnei be'ulah], saith Yahweh.
Jerusalem as the Sarah at first barren then greatly fruitful
Every immersed believer of the gospel of the kingdom and name, is an adopted citizen of the Holy City. Paul writing to such believers says: "Ye are come to Mount Zion, and unto the City of the Living Deity, the Heavenly Jerusalem," "the Mother of us all" (Heb. xii. 22; Gal. vi. 26). "Ye are come;" that is, not personally; but by faith; because "we walk by faith, not by sight."
All that is promised concerning the future glory of the "barren Jerusalem that beareth not," and is now trampled upon by the Fourth Euphratean, or Ottoman, Angel-power, they heartily and affectionately believe: and believing these "exceeding great and precious promises," together with the things concerning Jesus, and the apostolic revelation of the mystery, they are reckoned by adoption through immersion into Christ, as if they had been royally born in the Asiatic city; and consequently entitled to share officially in all its good fortune when it shall break forth into singing, because her light is come, and the glory of Yahweh is risen upon her (Psa. lxxxvii. 5,6; Gal. iv. 27; Isa. liv. 1; lx. 1).
The true believers in the present altar-worshipping state are collectively the Holy City, the Municipality elect, and divinely appointed to rule in the restored Jerusalem, when it shall have been delivered by the Angel of the Bow from the Serpent-Power of the unmeasured court by which it is now "trodden under foot."
5 For thy Maker [Oseh] is thine husband [ba'al]; Yahweh of hosts is his name [Tzva'os Shmo]; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel [Go'el is Kadosh Yisroel]; The Elohim of the whole earth [Kol HaAretz ] shall He be called.
Since the expulsion of Israel by the Romans, Jerusalem and her children are in the situation of Hagar and her son, while wandering in the wilderness of Beersheba. She is divorced from the Lord as Hagar was from Abraham, and "being desolate, she sits upon the ground" (Gen. 21:1), and bewails her widowhood (Isaiah 3:26).
But, there is to be "a restitution of all things." Jerusalem is to become a free woman as Sarah was; and to take her stand in the midst of the earth, as "the city whose architect and builder is God." She will then "remember the reproach of her widowhood no more. For her Maker will be her Husband; the Lord of Hosts is His name; and her Redeemer the Holy One of Israel (even Jesus) the God of the whole earth shall He be called.
She will then be the metropolis of the world, and her citizens, or children, will be more numerous than those she rejoiced in under the law, as a married wife. The period of her glory will have arrived; the twelve tribes be again the united, peaceful, and joyous, inhabitants of the land; the "greater than Solomon," their King; and His city, "the heavenly Jerusalem," which "is free, and the mother of us all."
Elpis Israel - The Allegory.
....the rejector of Jesus contends for only one eloahh. But Moses nowhere teaches that there is but one eloahh; nor does he use the phrase One Elohim -- a singular numeral with a plural noun. On the contrary, he teaches the existence of a plurality of Elohim. The Sh'ma does not say "Yahweh our Eloahh is one Yahweh, or one Eloahh"; but "Yahweh our Elohim is one Yahweh."
Moses and Jesus are agreed in this also; for if either of them had taught that there was but one eloahh, they would have been in opposition, or of both of them had so taught, they would have left no room for a Messiah who should be called Yahweh-Tsidkainu, as in Jer. 23:6; 33:16, He shall be our righteousness; and Elohai kol-haretz, "Elohim (plural) of the whole earth," as in Isaiah 54:5. To have taught the doctrine of only one Eloahh, as well as only one Yahweh, would have been to set aside the doctrine of a Messiah altogether, so that there would be neither a personal Christ, nor a multitudinous Christ, the latter being constituted of all in him, the personal.
Well, then, Moses and Jesus both taught a plurality of Eloahhs. Jesus said: I am Eloahh, and my Father is Eloahh, and the children of God by resurrection, each one is Eloahh; and all together we are thy Elohim, O Israel, and yet but one Yahweh.
But the Jews repudiate such a God-Name as this. It is incomprehensible to them; and in their opinion, nothing short of blasphemy. It was so repugnant to their notions of things that when Jesus taught it "they took up stones to stone him"; and declared that they did so because that he, being a man, made himself Eloahh in saying: I am the Son of All (John 10:33-36).
