Swearing, Oath, Prophecy

The swearing, the oath, and the prophecy are all

linked and interconnected together in a great network תקשרת

in the Scriptures. We begin in the Torah in the book of

Genesis, chapter 25, verse 33:

“And Jacob said, Swear to me this day, and he sware to him:

and he sold his birthright to Jacob.”

ויאמר יעקב השבעה לי כיום

וישבע לו

וימכור את בכורתו ליעקב

The word for swearing, and the word for the number seven

come from the same root in Hebrew שבע .

In this passage the word is mentioned twice: [ 2 x 7 = 14 ].

This is the TIME that Jacob had to serve Laban for Laban’s two

daughters: 7 years for Leah, and 7 years for Rachel.

14 is the number of GENERATIONS 3 TIMES

until the Messiah משיח .

• Abraham to David: 14 Generations.

• David to the Carrying Away to Babylon: 14 Generations.

• The Carrying Away to Babylon

to Messiah Yeshua משיח ישוע : 14 Generations.

The number 14 which Jacob labored is repeated three times

until the Messiah משיח

because the Shema declares the name of G-d three times.

[7] is the OATH of HASHEM to our father Abraham

in the Akeidah עקדה in Genesis 22:16:

“By myself I have sworn, solemly declares the LORD,

because you have done this thing, and not withheld

your son, your only son:

In blessing I will bless you,

and in multiplying I will multiply your seed

as the stars of the heaven,

and as the sand which is upon the sea shore;

And your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies:

And in your seed shall all the nations

of the earth be blessed;

because you have obeyed my voice.”

ויאמר בי נשבעתי נאם יהוה

כי יען אשר עשית את הדבר הזה

ולא חשכת את בנך את יחידך:

כי ברך אברכך והרבה ארבה את זרעך

ככוכבי השמים

וכחול אשר על שפת הים

וירש זרעך את שער איביו:

והתברכו בזרעך כל גויי הארץ

עקב אשר שמעת בקולי:

[7] is the OATH OF HASHEM to David:

Out of his seed shall spring the Messiah

It is repeated three times.

The reason that it is repeated three times

with reference to the Messiah משיח

is that this is the number of times that

the name of G-d is said in the Shema.

“Hear, O Israel, the LORD, Our LORD, the LORD, is ONE.”

Deuteronomy 6:4.

שמע ישראל

יהוה אלהינו יהוה


The Hebrew word ECHAD אחד is used

at the end of the Shema to show

the composite unity of the number 3

which is three in one.

The following are the three times

that the prophecy is declared with the oath:

Time #1. II Samuel 7:8-29 [11-13].

“Also the LORD tells you that

He will make you a house.

And when your days are fulfilled,

and you shall sleep with your fathers,

I will set up your seed after you,

which shall proceed out of your bowels,

and I will establish his kingdom.

He shall build an house for my name,

and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.”

והגיד לך יהוה

כי בית יעשה לך יהוה:

כי ימלאו ימיך ושכבת את אבתיך

והקימתי את זרעך אחריך

אשר יצא ממעיך

והכינותי את ממלכתו:

הוא יבנה בית לשמי

וכוננתי את כסא ממלכתו עד עולם:

Time #2. I Chronicles 17:7-27 [10-12].

“And since the time that I commanded

judges to be over my people Israel.

Moreover I will subdue all your enemies.

Furthermore I tell you that the LORD

will build you a house.

And it shall come to pass, when your days

are expired that you must go to be with your fathers,

that I will raise up your seed after you,

which shall be of your sons,

and I will establish his kingdom.

He shall build me a house, and

I will establish his throne forever.”

ולמימים אשר צויתי

שפטים על עמי ישראל

והכנעתי את כל אויביך:

ואגד לך ובית יבנה לך יהוה:

והיה כי מלאו ימיך ללכת עם אבותיך

והקימותי את זרעך אחריך

אשר יהיה מבניך

והכינותי את מלכותו:

הוא יבנה לי בית

וכננתי את כסאו עד ועלם:

Time #3. Psalm 110:1-2,4-5.

“The LORD said to my LORD,

You sit at my right hand,

Until I make your enemies your footstool.

The LORD shall send the rod

of your strength out of Zion:

You rule in the midst of your enemies.

The LORD has sworn,

and will not repent,

You are a priest forever,

after the order of Melchizedek.

The LORD at your right hand

shall strike through kings

in the day of his wrath.”

נאם יהוה לאדוני

שב לימיני

עד אשית אויביך הדם לרגליך:

מטה עזך

ישלח יהוה מציון

רדה בקרב אויביך:

נשבע יהוה

ולא ינחם

אתה כוהן לעולם

על דברתי מלכי־צלק:

אדוני על ימינך

מחץ ביום אפו מלכים:

[14] the number of years Jacob

laboured for Rachel and Leah,

is the number of generations three times

from our father Abraham

until the Messiah.

1. Abraham to David = [14] generations.

2. David to the Carrying Away to Babylon = [14] generations.

3. The Carrying Away to Babylon

until Messiah Yeshua משיח ישוע = [14] generations.

Thus the Oath that HaShem made

to our father Abraham is fulfilled through

the birthright that was given

to our father Jacob.

And notice again:

[7] The Oath of Hashem to Abraham

+ [7] The Oath of Hashem to David

[14] = the number of generations.

And [7] is the number of branches of the Menorah.

Messiah Yeshua משיח ישוע stands

in the midst of the Menorah.

[7] = the number of the Shabbat שבת

[7] = the number of the Shmittah שמיטה

[7] x [7] = the number of the Jubilee יובל

Therefore Covenant = Oath = [7].

[7] x [7] = the number of days from Pesach פסח

to Shavuot שבעות Pentecost. This is the number of

the Kingdom מלכות שבמלכות

[7] x [7] = the number of years to the Jubilee יובל .

+ 1 = freedom from all debt.

[7] x [10] = the number of the elders of the children of Israel.

[7] x [10] = the number of gentile nations.

[7] x [10] = the number of years that Israel was captive in Babylon

[7] x [70] = the number of time until the end of the age of the Gentiles and the beginning of the reign of the Messiah from Jerusalem – the Messianic Age.

a. [7] + [62] weeks [7] = the Messiah is cut off, but not for himself;

= the people of the prince to come shall destroy

Jerusalem and the Temple.

= the end shall be with a flood: war and

desolations are determined.

“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and sixty two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

And after sixty two weeks shall the Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.” Daniel 9:25-26.

ותדע ותשכל מן מצא דבר

להשיב ולבנות ירושלים

עד משיח נגיד

שבעים שבעה

ושבעים ששים ושנים

תשוב ונבנתה רחוב וחרוץ ובצוק העתים:

ואחרי השבעים ששים ושנים

יכרת משיח ואין לו

והעיר והקודש ישחית עם נגיד הבא

וקצו בשטף ועד קץ מלחמה נחרצת שממות:

b. [7] + [62] weeks [7] = the Messiah accomplishes [7] tasks when he gives himself and is cut off but not for himself:

1. He finishes the transgression.

2. He makes an end of sins.

3. He makes reconciliation for iniquity.

4. He brings in everlasting righteousness.

5. He seals up the vision.

6. He seals up the prophecy.

7. He anoints the most Holy.

“Seventy weeks are determined upon your people (Israel) and upon the holy city (Jerusalem), to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring everlasting righteousnesss, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.”

Daniel 9:24.

שבעים שבעים נחתך

על עמך ועל עיר קדשך

לכלא הפשע

ולחתם חטאות

ולכפר עון

ולהביא צדק עולמים

ולחתום חזון ונביא

ולמשח קודש קדשים:

c. [7] + [62] weeks [7] + [7]

[7] is the number of years of the covenant of the false messiah.

He breaks the covenant in the middle [3 1/2] years. The Holy Covenant is the Jerusalem Covenant. This is the written and signed covenant among all Jews wordwide that Jerusalem is the Eternal Capitol of Israel. The false messiah will make a covenant with Israel to keep the holy covenant for seven years. But he will hate the covenant and break it in the middle of time [3 1/2] years.

“His heart shall be against the holy covenant.” Daniel 11:28.

ולבבו על ברית קודש

“He shall have indignation against the holy covenant.”

Daniel 11:30

וזעם על ברית קודש

Then the false messiah will set up the abomination that makes desolate, and the earth shall be made desolate.

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:

and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27.

והגביר ברית לרבים שבוע אחד

וחצי השבוע ישבית זבח ומנחה

ועל כנף שקוזים משמם ועד כלה

ונחרצה תתך על שומם:

“And they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.” Daniel 11:31.

וחללו המקדש המעוז

והסירו התמיד

ונתנו השקוץ משמם:

This is the time of Jacob’s trouble, but Israel shall be saved out of it, because the true Messiah, Yeshua משיח ישוע shall return and destroy the false messiah. He will set up his throne in Jerusalem, the throne of David, and rule over Israel and the world from Jerusalem. This fulfills the prophecy.

“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it:

it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble;

but he shall be saved out of it.

For it shall come to pass in that day, says the LORD of hosts,

that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and I will burst your bonds,

and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

But they shall serve HASHEM their G-d,

and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.” Jeremiah 30:7-9.

הוי כי גדול ההוא מאין כמהו

ועת צרה היא ליעקב וממנה יושע:

והיה ביום ההוא נאם יהוה צבאות

אשבור עולו מעל צוארך ומוסרותיך אנתק

ולא יעבדו בו עוד זרים:

ועבדו את יהוה אלהיהם

ואת דוד מלכם אשר אקים להם:

[7] x [70] Thus this marks the last war, the last battle, the destruction of all to fulfill the Covenant-Oath that HASHEM made to our fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that He will give to us the land, set up the Messiah on the throne of David in Jerusalem, and bring to the world the reign of the Messiah Yeshua משיח ישוע in everlasting peace and righteousness.
