SONGS OF ASCENT - Part 2
OCTOBER 5, 2012
In part one of this message, we shared some of the hidden meanings behind the Songs of Ascent and the secrets of the stairs. This is the only feast of Yahweh that seems to go out of the way to acknowledge the female of Divine Feminine. This foreshadows a very in depth work taking place in the Soul (mind, will, emotion, intellect, imagination), the saving of the soul, so that she might once again ascend to that exalted state. During the Feast of Tabernacles, the women were positioned in the higher place, the balcony.
THE FEMALE GOD-DESS ?!
“So God created man in his image, In the Image of God Created He Him (Adam), male and female created he them.” Gen.1:27 God’s Image is both Male and Female, however, most believers today only know about the masculine side of God.
God revealed Himself to the patriarchs in the book of Genesis, as El Shaddai (Breasted one, Almighty) Gen. 17:1 This is the feminine - Mother God (dess). They did not have an "in depth" revelation of the masculine, Father God - until Moses was called. “And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name God Almighty (El Shaddai-Breasted One/Mother), but by my name Yahweh (Jehovah- Self Existing One/Father), was I not known to them.” Exodus 6:3
They had heard the name Yahweh and used it, but there was no special revelation given to it. Unbelievers hear and use the name Jesus (Yahshua) all the time, but they don’t know the nature, revelation or power of it.
For 3500 years, we have seen the masculine energies at work-Father God. Prophetically speaking, we are about to see a greater expression of feminine energies - Mother God. “...In the last days sons and Daughters will prophesy..” (For further truth study: See the Feminine Wisdom of God, and God the Mother, Proverbs 8-9, Song of Sol. 8:1-2, Isaiah 66:10-13)
Wisdom, she stands in the top of the high places and cries. There are 15 steps to the high places where she may be serenaded to bring the Balance again between the male and female energies within. In the natural it take male and female to produce a child, this principal is also true in spirit.
It has been said that “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus.” During the Feast of Tabernacles, we will realize that we are really from each other.
SECRET PLACES OF THE STAIRS
This strange verse was written by Solomon. “O my dove, in the cleft of the rock, In the Secret Places of the Stairs, let me see your countenance, let me hear your voice; for sweet is your voice, and your countenance is comely.” Song of Solomon 2:14
In Solomon’s Temple, there were the stairs; a bridge to bring male and female together, also in this temple of God (body), there is the secret place of ascending; which brings Divine Balance.
We have within us both the Masculine (spirit-positive) and Feminine (soul-negative), a full expression of All Power. Yah, being the masculine and weH, being the feminine. The tetragrammation YHWH, the unprouncible name of God. By adding the vowels, “A” from AdAm and “E” from EvE - we get YAH-WEH.
In Psalms 133, at the 14th mystical step, there is a song of celebration of the Unity of the brethren (male-female). In the realization of this Union, there will the anointing, peace, and blessings will flow. It is also a place of maturity, symbolized by the beard.
The call or voice in the cleft of the Rock or the secret places of the stairs is the Voice of the Bridegroom (Christ) to the Bride (called out ones). The voice of spirit to soul, or the voice of Adam (male) to Eve (female). She has been dwelling in the secret places of the stairs. Adam has blamed Eve from the beginning for getting them evicted from the Garden, losing their light bodies garments, and living in poverty. She’s been afraid to show her face or to speak in various religions, cultures and chauvinistic households.
She is called a dove, symbolic of the Holy Spirit. A dove commits to its mate for life, that’s how our commitment should be to Christ. The soul is committed to the spirit. In the Songs of Ascent, sung during the Feast of Tabernacles, we realize that our countenance is the image of His, we are his reflection; our voice (words) are sweet, because they are His.
What was considered sin, has been dealt with at Atonement, we have been abiding in the secret place and all He wants to do is rejoice over us and in us with singing and dances of deliverance.
"The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17
WHAT ABOUT THE NUMBER 120?
In part one, we discovered that the Songs of Ascent begin with Psalms 120. During the 8 days of Tabernacles the Levites ascended the 15 steps with musical instruments and songs. (8 x 15 = 120) Is that coincidence? There is no coincidence, only prophetic indicators.
The number 120 has a two-fold meaning as all numbers do. The negative or shadow side of 120 means, the end of flesh. (I really think that’s positive) Genesis 6:3, The Creators tweaked human DNA again, most likely with frequency technology. This shortened man’s lifespan from 969 years to 120 years. God brought an end to flesh in that day by flood. Moses had lived 120 years, then Joshua succeeded him.
On the other hand, we see Outpourings surrounding the number 120. There was an outpouring of rain for 40 days and night. There were 120 priests blowing trumpets, they fell under the power and the glory of God that filled the Temple. 2 Chronicles Chapter 5 - Through the preaching of Jonah, 120 thousand were saved. Jonah 4:11 On the day of Pentecost 120 were in the Upper Room, they were all filled with the Holy Ghost. Acts 2 We are around 6000 years or so from the Genesis chapter 2 Adam. 50 is the number of Jubilee, and we are in the beginning stages of experiencing the 120th Jubilee since that Adam creation. (50 x 120=6000).
Another one of the secret messages of the stairs is, before there can be an Outpouring on and through your life, your flesh must come to an end. Before you can ascend these 15 mystical steps in the Tabernacles Experience, you must die to the lesser self. Then, the flood of the Spirit will come, the Joshua will arise to take you to the other side, the glory of God will fill your physical body, the upper room of your mind will be set ablaze to purge your thinking, and your whole spirit, soul, and body will be saved through the ministry and sign of Jonah, which means, Dove (Holy Spirit). “O my dove, in the cleft of the rock, In the Secret Places of the Stairs.." And all of groaning creation will be set free into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.
THE MYSTERIOUS NUMBER 15
15 is made up of two sacred numbers, 3 and 5. The number 3 speaks of Tri-uneness, Divine Completeness. The number 5 speaks of Grace (ministry gifts, torah). So 3 x 5=15 i.e., Divine or Completed Grace.
15 is the number of Ascent, the act of ascending or ascension. The image above is the 15th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, SAMECH. Samech is the glyph of the endless circle or cycle. It is the realization and awareness, where the end becomes the beginning and the beginning becomes the end - all is ONE. This is the mysterious circle that defines what we call God. "The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere." -Empedocles
This is just another hidden clue, as we have pointed out 10+5=15 - The 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet is YUD or Yod. The 5th letter is Hey. The Yod and Hey makes up the sacred name or nature of God YaHWeH (Self Existing endless One). Samech retells the same story of God being the endless circle.
It is the 15th step in this higher consciousness, or 15 frequency that launches us into full awareness that we are the endless circle, without beginning or end. We are the sacred nature, the self-existing, endless One.
MORE SECRETS INVOLVING THE NUMBERS 5 & 15
Solomon’s Temple had 15 steps, showing the way to Complete Grace and rest. To help us further understand Father/Mother God and the mystery of divine polarity, look at this. The number 5, which 15 is made of; notice the 5th Commandment. “Honor thy father and mother, that your days may be long on the land.” Ex.20:12
Noah found Grace (the number 15 also associated with grace) in the eyes of the Lord and was instructed to build an Ark.
It was 300 cubits long, (20 x 15=300) which is equivalent to 450 ft. or (30 x 15=450). COINCIDENCE?
It was 50 cubits in breadth, which is equivalent to 75 ft, or (5 x 15=75).
The height of it was 30 cubits (2 x 15=30), which is equivalent to 45 ft. or (3 x 15=45). Genesis chapter 6 and Verse 15.
The flood waters prevail 15 cubits above the mountains. Genesis 7:20 COINCIDENCE? I DON’T THINK SO!! That’s Divine Grace multiplied.
The purpose for showing all the above measurements is to show you the Awesomeness of our God. God is so detail and precise that He even hid this series of 15’s in the 15th verse. Hallelujah!
King Hezekiah found Divine Grace in the eyes of the Lord. Isaiah 38:and verse 5 God prolongs the life of Hezekiah for 15 years.
John 11:18 says that Bethany was 15 furlongs (2 miles) from Jerusalem where Martha met Jesus and found Divine Grace that brought resurrection life to Lazarus decaying dead body.
The Feast of Tabernacles starts on the 15th day of the 7th month. Foreshadowing the Age of God’s Kingdom on the earth in full manifestation and all creation being reconciled through the Divine Grace of God. Leviticus 23:34 (There are many other hidden messages surrounding the number 15, we can’t mention at this time.
MEDITATIONS and AFFIRMATIONS
I have put together the last verse or phrase in each of these 15 Songs of Ascent-from Psalms 120-134. Let these be your meditations and affirmations, as you ascend the mystical secret stairs of the temple which you are. May may you find the Divine Grace, which is more than enough. As you access and ascend this DNA secret staircase, you will experience healing, wholeness, soundness of mind, acceptance, prosperity and peace. He sings this over you. Feel free to chant or sing over and over each sentence or phrase, until you become it.
I Am For Peace.
The Lord Shall Preserve My Going Out And My Coming In From This Time Forth, And Even Forevermore.
I Will Seek That Which Is Good.

[Let's keep matching the frequency of heaven during "our season of rejoicing"- Feast of Tabernacles. 3000 years ago the Priest and people practiced extreme temple worship, while the Levites played the instruments and sang on the 15 steps - they literally danced the night away. Another one of my all time favorite artists - Kirk Franklin, he reminds us that Just before you live - you have to die (death of the lower self-ego)- Don't be afraid to die - So get up and LIVE RIGHT NOW - Pump up your volume and dance around.
