The haftarah הפטרה “parting” for parashah Shemot שְׁמוֹת “names” is studied and recited from “The Prophets” (נְבִיאִים Nəḇî’îm)‎ Book of Isaiah 27:6-28:13, 29:22-23. Isaiah is an anointed prophet (nebiya נָבִיא/”spokesman, speaker) through The Holy Spirit ( רוח הקודש Ruakh HaKodesh) for Yahweh, concerning the immediate situation during his own time (The physical Babylonian exile) as well as to provide a metaphysical parabolic vision of the situation that was to come in our time(The spiritual exile in Babel בָּבֶל “mental confusion”) On one level of interpretation, it is important to recognize, through dispensational revelation, that the pattern of prophecy utilizes nations that were historical enemies of Israel to serve as a metaphoric blueprint for spiritually ignorant attitudes, that would occur in the latter days, as an amalgam of residual corruption. This does not discount the respective significance of each biblical nation specifically in phi-cycle reality. The book, of Isaiah, opens by setting out the themes of judgment and subsequent restoration for the righteous. God has a plan which will be realized on the “Day of Yahweh”, when Jerusalem ((יְרוּשָׁלַם Yĕruwshalaim “teaching of peace” “city of peace”) will become the center of his worldwide rule. On that day all the nations of the world will come to Zion/Tziyuwn צִיּוּן “a pillar” (Jerusalem) for instruction, but first the city must be punished and cleansed of evil. Chapters 13–27 announce the preparation of the nations for Yahweh’s world rule; chapters 28–33 announce that a royal saviour (a messiah) will emerge in the aftermath of Israel’s punishment and the destruction of her oppressor.

In The Name of The Father The Son The Holy Spirit, ONE GOD.
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is ONE
English Study Notes/Commentary
Isaiah 27
Verse 6 He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root (Sharash שֵׁרֵשׁ I.to uproot, take root, deal with the roots [compare with re’shiyth רֵאשִׁית “beginning”) .Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.
(NOTE:Ras Tefferi ራስ ተፈሪ “Head to be Reverenced” (compare with Rosh tiph’arah רֹאשׁ תִּפְאָרָה “Head of Beauty, Spendor, Glory [kabowd כָּבוֹד/kibur ክብር] as an attribute of GOD)
This prophecy was fulfilled, on earth, when Ras Tefferi Makonnen was anointed Qedamawi Haile Selassie “First Power of The Trinity”, on the world stage (paniyi tebel פְנֵי־תֵבֵל “face of the world”), in Addis Abeba አዲስ አበባ “New Flower” Ethiopia “Abyssinia”.

When we as Israel “deal with the roots” we find [The Holy Bible clearly tells us that Gihon (White Nile) goes around the whole land of Cush, or Ethiopia (Genesis 2:13). On this point many scholars agree. Cush in Hebrew, Ethiopia in Greek and Sudan in Arabic mean the same, burned face, and this is a fact that these burned face people live in this region of the Globe, the land of Cush. Note that all East African countries, with exception of Egypt, through which the river Gihon goes was identified as the Biblical Ethiopia (Cush). The Bible also tells us that Noah begot Ham, Ham begot Cush and Cush begot Havilah (Genesis 10: 1-7) and the land of Havilah is in Ethiopia identified today as Godjam, the land skirted by the river Pishon (Genesis 2:11-12) or the Blue Nile, the first of the four river of Eden. No land like Godjam in Ethiopia is skirted by such big river in the world!
If, according to the Bible, we identify Gihon as the land of Cush or Ethiopia or Sudan, and that Havilah whose land is skirted by the river Pishon is the son of Cush, then Havilah and Pishon cannot be somewhere in the Middle East. Cush cannot send his son Havilah to Middle East from Africa than providing a part from his land, Ethiopia. From this, it is clear to understand that Pishon and Gihon, the first and second rivers of Eden, are in East Africa biblically known as Ethiopia and those of the third and fourth rivers of Eden in the Middle East.
If we agree on this, then where are the Eden and the Garden? It is again clearly stated in the Bible that a river went out of Eden to water the Garden (Genesis 2:10) although the Bible does not indicate which river waters the Garden after the division of the river into four riverheads; but which river is assumed to water the Garden? It should be the first river, Pishon, because the land of Havilah (known today as Godjam) is watered and moisturized by the river Pishon (Blue Nile) throughout the year still today. Therefore, the Eden, the Garden and the river Pishon are found in Ethiopia! (Excerpt from The whereabouts of the Eden, the Garden & the River Pishon, Belayneh Kassa Wubie, NowPublic, June 18, 2010)

H.I.M. Haile Selassie I at Lake Tana (ጣና ሐይቅ? Ṭana Ḥäyq) The Source of The Blue Nile.

Verses 7 Hath he smitten him “Israel”, as he smote those that smote him? or is he slain according to the slaughter of them that are slain by him?
8 In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.
9 By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up.
10 Yet the defenced city shall be desolate, and the habitation forsaken, and left like a wilderness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume the branches thereof.

In verse 7 Our Prophet Isaiah (Yeshayah יְשַׁעְיָה “Yahweh has Saved”) foretells the fulfillment of this prophecy by Masiakh ben Yousef/Our Lord and Savior Eyesus Kristos “Jesus Christ” through his rejection by Israel (confer with the account of Yeshua HaMasiakh in front of The Sanhedrin [סַנְהֶדְרִין “sitting together”: an assembly of twenty to twenty-three men appointed in every city in the biblical Land of Israel. Sadducees and Pharisees who worked hard to keep the peace by agreeing with the decisions of Rome ] that is found in Matthew 26:68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ “Masiakh”, Who is he that smote thee?) The evidence is being presented for whomever chooses to debate it.

see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Borgia

Concurrently, Isaiah foreshadows the revelation of Masiakh ben David/in the person of H.I.M. Haile Selassie I, The Conquering Lion of The Tribe of Judah [יְהוּדָה Yĕhuwdah “Praises of GOD” from the root יָדָה yadah:I.to throw, shoot, cast A. (Qal) to shoot (arrows) B. (Piel) to cast, cast down, throw down C. (Hiphil) I. to give thanks,, laud, praise ii. to confess, confess (the name of God)] Although it is debated, Qedamawi Haile Selassie still demonstrates the Love of Christ and shows His Grace to racial/religious Israel and Judeo-Christians, so that we may all “repent” (תשובה teshubah “return/μετανοέω metanoeō “have a change of mind and heart”) in and through Yeshua HaMasiakh who was slain so that “Jacob be purged…and his sin taken away” (NOTE: The Name Jacob is used here rather than Israel. For further insight refer to Genesis 32:28). Still, left to freewill or due to lack of knowledge thereof, many choose to forsake the habitation by remaining in the wilderness to be consumed as the branches thereof.

Verse 10 addresses the Babylonian Captivity/Exile after Asharah beTebet (עשרה בטבת‎) the destruction of Solomon’s Temple by Nebuchadnezzar II but also prefigures the destruction of Herod’s הוֹרְדוֹס (Herod Antipater “a madman who murdered his own family and a great many rabbis”, “the evil genius of the Judean nation”) “second temple”, August 70 CE (AM 3830).
However, The New Covenant shows that the habitation is no longer confined to a physical location of a inanimate structure. John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21: But he spake of the temple of his body
and 1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Excerpt from H.I.M. Haile Selassie I’s Christmas interview with Dr. Oswald Hoffamn “H.I.M. Haile Selassie: The Church is not merely a building. The Church is the faithful fulfillment of the Christian life and its requirements. Thus, as the name applies to the buildings so is our heart The Church in which God dwells.
After our blameless Creator was sent to this world by His Father, then the hearts of all believers become The Temple of God. The love of God cannot be fathomed by a series of questions and answers, and man’s soul cannot experience deeper enrichment as a result. We believe that men at all times be bound by His love and grace.”

It is evident that H.I.M. Haile Selassie I fulfilled this prophecy by slaying the wicked White Supremacist Euro-Gentile/Anglo-Saxon world system (refer to Psalm 139:19 and Revelation 19:15) during His Appeal to The League of Nations, and eventually in his victory over Pope “not our father” Pius IV and Benito Mussolini the Satanic Minions of Fascist Nicolaitane Anti-Christ Rome.

Haile Selassie, the emperor of Ethiopia (left), speaking at a League of Nations special session which was held on 30 June 1936 in Geneva, Switzerland, to protest Italy’s invasion and occupation of Ethiopia. At the end of Selassie’s stirring speech denouncing the Italian invasion and criticizing the world for standing by, the emperor stated that:
“It is us today. It will be you tomorrow.”The international response to the speech did not produce the results that Selassie desired, which was to deny the recognition of the Italian conquest and to be granted a loan for a resistance movement.

(Excerpt from The Plain Truth December 1973) Emperor Haile Selassie went before the League of Nations in Geneva in person. He pleaded with them to STOP this fast-mounting Fascist threat to world peace at Ethiopia, before it invaded France and Britain, and started the greatest conflagration of world war in history. Did not this man, who claims to be a direct descendant of the ancient King Solomon of Judah and the Queen of Sheba, prophesy that if they did not stop the Fascist armies before they invaded Ethiopia, that all’ Western Europe would be invaded? – that the British Empire would cease to be an Empire – that nothing but TROUBLE would come upon the democracies of Western Europe and the United States? war troubles, economic troubles – political troubles?
WHAT IF the League of Nations had heeded Haile Selassie’s plea and warning in 1935? Might it not have prevented WORLD WAR II? And would that not have changed the whole course .of world history? THINK what might have happened! No World War II! No Korean War! No Vietnam War! No disintegration of the British Empire! No loss in the United States of the pride of her power – but a strong voice that would be respected among all nations. The U S. has the power, but since World War II has been afraid to win any more wars.

The closing statements in paragraph above, from the author, Herbert W. Armstrong’s, Eurocentric psychological state, exposes a dual observation that H.I.M. Haile Selassie’s two edged sword “The Teaching of His Majesty” (see Hebrews 4:12) will end European Colonial world domination (a.k.a. end of The Times of The Gentiles see Revelation 11) and manifest international security, based on principles of Human Rights, for all people.

Excerpt from Benito Mussolini’s Blood and Brains: “In league with the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, Benito Mussolini launched an unprovoked attack on Ethiopia in 1935, an attack which was roundly condemned around the world (AUTHOR’s NOTE: Mexico was the only country to strongly condemn Italy’s sovereignty over Ethiopia, respecting Ethiopian independence throughout. Mexico was amongst only six nations in 1937 which did not recognize Italy’s occupation, along with China, New Zealand, the Soviet Union, the Republic of Spain, and the United States.) Paying little heed to the global outrage, Mussolini sought to advance his aim which was the conquest and the creation of an Italian Empire off the shore of the North African coast, in Ethiopia specifically (the only independent African state at that time).The savagery of his attacks were unheard of and unseen previous to his barbaric show. The gas bombs, and the chemical bombs which were flung on hapless Ethiopians by the immoral soldiers of Mussolini’s Italy were blessed by the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church (Pope Pius IX).” ARTICLE LINK: http://www.africaresource.com/rasta/sesostris-the-great-the-egyptian-hercules/benito-mussolinis-blood-and-brain-for-sale-rasta-livewire-reports/

Furthermore, H.I.M. Haile Selassie I demonstrates true Christianity and reveals GOD in Christ to the world by refusing to seek retaliation. This decision prevented the further senseless loss of precious and innocent lives and wisely sets a living example, which is symbolically represented in scripture as fruit, of a paraphrased proverbial saying “to get even with the devil one will need to descend to his level”…and that is hell (שְׁאוֹל sheowl: the OT designation for the abode of the dead I. place of no return ii. without praise of God iii. wicked sent there for punishment iv. righteous not abandoned to it v.of the place of exile (fig) vi.of extreme degradation in sin)
Excerpt from H.I.M. Haile Selassie I’s Christmas interview with Dr. Oswald Hoffamn “Dr. Oswald Hoffman: Just seven months after He became Emperor in 1930, He gave the people of Ethiopia their first written Constitution. His plea before the League of Nations in 1936 as His country was ravaged by Mussolini’s armies, and His anguished exile during the following years, are etched in the memory of the world. When He regained His throne in 1941, His refusal to allow retaliation against the defeated invader was viewed with disbelief.”

11 When the boughs thereof are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come, and set them on fire: for it is a people of no understanding: therefore he that made them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will shew them no favour.
12 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel.
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem.

One of the keys to comprehending Verses 11-13 is found in
John 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the (beginning re’shiyth רֵאשִׁית:I.first, beginning, best, chief. From the root rosh רֹאשׁ:head/ራስ ras in Amharic)

Compare John 15:14 with Exodus 33:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

Fruit of Faith that Worketh by LoveExcerpt from H.I.M. Haile Selassie I’s Christmas interview with Dr. Oswald Hoffamn “H.I.M. Haile Selassie: I would tell a person who was considering the claim of Christ for the first time that it is necessary to have faith in the Almighty, that it is necessary to have love, and that it is necessary to conduct oneself in a manner that we have been taught to do in the Bible.
I would also advise him to seek the secular knowledge, for the more one knows the more he realises the need for a prime mover, the need for a Creator, a Creator who is good, and the need for salvation and also for peaceful life upon earth.
I would also tell him to learn and to think for himself the ways he would serve the Lord. In this thought and in this undertaking of his he will inevitably find the way of serving his fellow men. For his faith would then be manifested by His conduct. If Christians behave in this way, if we dedicate ourselves to this fundamental task, then we will have a peaceful world and will be assured of not transgressing against the will and the Commandments of God.

In addition, Verse 12 provides insight into and clarifies the concept of rapture. Referring to Acts 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the “eunuch” saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
This is an account of Apostle Phillip baptizing The Ethiopian Hebrew treasurer, who was returning from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and reading from Isaiah 53:7-8. The treasurer of Candace (Kandake: title for queens and queen mothers of the ancient African Kingdom of Kush, also known as Nubia and Ethiopia: Candace of Meroë fought Alexander the Great. In fact, Alexander never attacked Nubia, and never attempted to move further south than the oasis of Siwa in Egypt.)
From this perspective, we see the gathering of Israel by The Spirit of The Lord (Ruakh Hadosdesh רוח הקודש )one by one as corresponding to the word harpazō (ἁρπάζω .to seize, carry off by force, claim for one’s self eagerly). Furthermore, Apostle Phillip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesareais. Thus, the concept of rapture should not be interpreted, under delusion, as a escape from the tribulation of the age. As Our Prophet Berhane Selassie “Light of The Trinity” a.k.a. Bob Marley admonished “Some people think Great God will come from the sky, take away everything and make everybody feel high, but if you know what life is worth you will look for yours on earth”.
