Revelation 21, Page 17-08

Bible, KJV Translation
Repeating) 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Re-evaluation Translation
Repeating) 21:14  The protective structure around Yehuveh’s people is based on twelve foundation principles, defined as the twelve core structures of the Lamb-king.

Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Revelation 21:14 continued (20 July 2008):  “The wall of the city had twelve foundations,” that is, twelve fundamental principles on which all the rest of the moral code is established. Torah presents these twelve commandments or foundation structures in Exodus 20:3-17 and Deuteronomy 5:7-21.

Explanation and Scriptural foundation of the eighth:

Structure #8:  Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy 5:17.

Qabbalah, the Tree of Life: purposed ambition   
Companion Statutes and Right-Rulings (judgments) which raise a protective wall on this foundation.

Significance:  If no other commandment were kept, most of us want this one to stick. It is the base
                under any sense of safety or security wherever we are. Little wonder there is such
                extensive Scriptural emphasis on this boundary and such immediate innate revulsion to
                any act of violation.

                    Although Yehuveh clearly stated,
“Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be
                shed: for in the image of Elohim made He man,”
evaluation of the crime was to be handled by
                the city leaders, and usually the responsibility for this just punishment was reserved for the family
                who had been wronged. Under righteous government this system was effective, but when human
                government with its walls
“daubed with untempered mortar” replaced true righteousness, this
                system of personally-guarded justice also failed. The monstrous “legal system” which has arisen to
                manage these matters is neither effective nor just to either murdered persons’ families nor to
                murderers. Furthermore,
the thousands of false accusations have graphically demonstrated
                the injustice perpetrated on innocent people who would never kill anyone.
Genesis 9:6; .
                    How far does this command reach? Can you swat a mosquito or housefly? What about mouse
                and rat traps? As with every other directive and established boundary, Yehuveh purposes balanced
                intelligence in our reading of this command. Read every text mentioned below and prayerfully
consider the intent of heart involved. Kill is translated from ratsach [H7523], stated by James
                Strong to mean
“to dash in pieces, kill (a human being), specifically, to murder.” While
                compassion is to guide our every action, there is no evidence in Scripture that we, living in a
                sin-ridden world, are required to preserve the lives of destructive pests [such as mosquitoes and
                rats]. Be very careful how you read that statement!
Wall built on this foundation: Genesis 4:8-23; 9:5, 6; Exodus 21:14, 20, 29; Leviticus 24:21;
                Numbers 35:16-34; Deuteronomy 19:11-13; 2 Samuel 12:9, 10; 2 Kings 21:16;
                2 Chronicles 24:22; Psalms 10:8-11; Proverbs 1:11, 18; Isaiah 26:21; Jeremiah 26:15.

Wall “daubed with untempered mortar” on this foundation: Call it Choice, Roe vs. Wade, Abortion
                or a Woman’s Right, the nationally legalized infanticide is blatantly violating this life-structuring
                command. Silent genocide laws permeate the food and drug industries!
