(נשׁמה, neshāmāh, רוּח, rūaḥ):
(1) The blowing of the breath of Yahweh, expressive of the manifestation of God's power in Nature and Providence. “With the blast of thy nostrils the waters were piled up” (Exo_15:8), referring to the east wind (Exo_14:21; compare 2Sa_22:16 and Psa_18:15). “I will send a blast upon him” (2Ki_19:7 the King James Version; the Revised Version (British and American) “put a spirit in him,” i.e. “an impulse of fear” (Dummelow in the place cited.); compare Isa_37:7). “By the blast of his anger are they consumed” (Job_4:9; compare Isa_37:36).
(2) The word rūaḥ is used with reference to the tyranny and violence of the wicked (Isa_25:4).
(3) The blowing of a wind instrument: “When they make a long blast with the ram's horn” (Jos_6:5).
Blight 1Ki_8:37; Sent as a judgment Deu_28:22; 2Ki_19:7; Isa_37:7; Amo_4:9; Hag_2:17; Figurative Exo_15:8; 2Sa_22:16; Job_4:9; Psa_18:15
BL'AST, v.t. [Literally, to strike.] To make to wither by some pernicious influence, as too much heat or moisture, or other destructive cause; or to check growth and prevent from coming to maturity and producing fruit; to blight, as trees or plants.
1. To affect with some sudden violence,plague, calamity, or destructive influence, which destroys or causes to fail; as, to blast pride or hopes. The figurative senses of this verb are taken from the blasting of plants, and all express the idea of checking growth, preventing maturity, impairing, injuring, destroying, or disappointing of the intended effect; as, to blast credit, or reputation; to blast designs.
2. To confound, or strike with force, by a loud blast or din.
3. To split rocks by an explosion of gun powder.
2Ki 19:29 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.
Isa 37:30 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.
Because of the seige of Assyria, the Judeans were penned up behind the walls of Jerusalem and had not been able to plant their crops. Thus, they would eat what grew on its own, an unreliable volunteer crop. After Assyria lifted the siege, they would be able to plant, but not until the third year would agriculture get back to normal.
The year of the Jubilee was a sabbath year plus the Jubilee year so the land rested for two years. Many suspect that these commands were never consistently implemented. While possible, it is statistically unlikey that the two years above would have coincided with the Jubilee (Lev 25:9-25). It is more like that the author used these concepts and principles as metaphors to describe the recovery of the land from devastation. Just as in the Jubilee, it would take two years of work and living on volunteer growth (plants arising from stray seeds not planted by man) to restore the land. These words also suggest that the diminished population could survive on volunteer growth for two years. The message from Isaiah was both a sign, whose fulfillment proved God's reliability, and a promise that voluteer growth would suffice for those two years.
What is interesting about this verse is that the land layed fallow for two years and then reaped in the ninth year. It layed fallow in the seventh and eighth year.
"The law was accompanied by a promise of treble fertility in the sixth year, the fruit of which was to be eaten till the harvest sown in the eighth year was reaped in the ninth. Lev_25:20-22. -esword Jubilee."
For instance, Israel farmers in 2014-2015 let their lands lay fallow in the Shemitah year and now will let it lay fallow for the year of Jubilee 2015-2016 and reap in 2017.
According to my reasearch on Feast Dates and Second Coming part 4, the Messianic Kingdom begins in 2017 and the harvest of believers is on the Day of Trumpet in 2017 in the 9th year of reaping.
2Ki 19:30 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.
2Ki 19:31 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.
Verse 31-32 was a metaphorical harvest of the surviving remnant of the people of God. The future will see the remnant become reproductive. These verses gives us a time reference because there is only 3 harvests: Barley and Wheat in the Spring and the Fall Harvest in September.
The closing metaphor had three levels of meaning. First, the remnants of the agricultural crops would take root and grow, and that growth would be an encouraging sign to God's people. Second, it promised that the remnant of the people would take root in the promised land, grow there, and survive the disaster. Third, this was a metaphor for the way in which God's people survive and recover from physical and spiritual enemies when they are fulfilling God's purposes.
2Ki 19:32 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.
2Ki 19:33 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.
Isa 37:33 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.
Isa 37:34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.
Jerusalem's deliverance would be so thorough that the Assyrians would not even shoot an arrow against Jerusalem.
2Ki 19:34 For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
2Ki 19:35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
Isa 37:35 For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
Isa 37:36 Then the angel of the LORD went forth (out) (flyby of a planet), and smote (struck) in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
Elohim/God directed His attention back to the king of Assyria. He announced that Sennacherib would fail at his attempt to take the city. He would not even begin the assault but would return to Assyeria. God would do this for His own glory and because of the promise He made to David. God promised David that "your house and kingdom will endure before Me forever, and your throne will be established forever" (2 Sam 7:16).
God miraculously damaged the Assyrian army so severely that they had to leave Judah. This apparently happened after the Assyrians had defeated the invading Egyptian army. All the events of this chapter probably took several weeks. Leaving lachish, turning aside from Libnah, defeating the Egyptians, and then suffering a miraculous blow from God--perhaps a plague--would take some time.
Job 4:9 By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed.
by the breath of his nostrils: that is, by his anger, Job_1:19, Job_15:30; Isa_11:4, Isa_30:33; 2Th_2:8; Rev_2:16
Angel - Such an angel as destroyed the first - born of Egypt. Nibiru possibly.
God sent His angel to kill the Assyrians without a battle. No proximate cause is given for the death of the enemy soldiers, though it is likely that God used disease to accomplish His goal. However theere may be a connection to the word blast above.
“Surely I will send a spirit upon him” (Isa 37:7), may have considerably missed the literal impact of the event. The most literal word should be “Blast” as in the Hebrew, the word translated is ruwach or ruach (Strong’s 7307) means a wind resembling a violent exhalation, a tempest, an angry breath and by extension a region of the sky such as an air blast.
What a difference this meaning takes! God does not send his ‘spirit’ as some would consider his Holy Spirit, Ruach HaKodesh. As Sennacherib had ‘utterly destroyed’ the lands in this scorch earth massacre, so also the Lord of hosts would treat him: the king and his forces would be utterly destroyed.
There is a theory that a passing cometary "blast" that probably contained cyanide (Isaiah 37:7) which killed 185,000 invading Assyrians outside the gates of Jerusalem during the reign of King Hezekiah (Isaiah 37:36-37).
The nation of Israel first felt the long arm of human terror in 725 B.C.E. when Shalmaneser V (727-722 B.C.E.) invaded Israel and marched on to Samaria. For three years the capital city lay in siege and finally fell in 722 B.C.E. During the final onslaught by Sargon II,(722-705 B.C.E.) general of the army and eventual successor to Shalmaneser, the kingdom of Judah also felt the wrath of Assyria, Judah, in the 4th year of Hezekiah, then also came under the control of Assyria by sending tribute. So in 722 B.C.E., House of Israel went into exile, an exile which has never been completed and whose dry bones have not been restored to this day, according to the prophecy of Ezekiel 36. (Ezekiel.36:1-14)
It appears that Sennacherib (705-681 B.C.E.) , successor to Sargon II, had made a military incursion into the kingdom of Judah, the first, around 701 B.C.E., the 14th year of Hezekiah. (1 Kings 18:13) he attacked the fortified cities of Hezekiah and carried off tribute and booty. Hezekiah repented and offered to pay tribute. Though Hezekiah ruled from 729-686 B.C.C., the first fifteen years were co-regent with his father, King Ahaz (735-715 B.C.E.). So fourteen years after he became sole rule in 715 B.C.C., Sennacherib came to Jerusalem and boasted that he made Hezekiah “prisoner in Jerusalem, his royal residence, like a bird in a cage”.
According to the royal histories of the kings of Judah, Hezekiah paid 300 talents of silver, in which he had to clean out the coffers of the Temple of God, and 30 talents of gold, in which he had to tear down the front doors of the temple and remove the gold overlay in which he had earlier restored when he repaired the Temple of Solomon. Having access now to the Royal Archives of Sennacherib in Nineveh, we find his claim that he claimed receipts of ‘thirty talents of gold and eight hundred talents of silver,” together with a great treasure of gems, couches of ivory, valuable woods, and ‘all kings of valuable treasures.” (SDA Bible Commentary Vol. 2 pg. 956)
Some scholars think that during this campaign, when he took the fenced cities, he also laid siege to Jerusalem. Others suggest that Sennacherib returned later, laid siege to Lachish, while he sent Rabshakeh, the chief cup bearer and spokesman for the king’s envoy, who was obviously multi-lingual as he spoke Hebrew, to deliver an ultimatum to King Hezekiah. While this ultimatum was being delivered, it was learned that Tirhakah, king of Cush, an Ethiopian ruler of the Twenty-fifth dynasty of Egypt, was in route to engage in battle with www.biblesearchers.com/catastrophes/catastrophes2_files/image002.jpgSennacherib. (11 Kings 19:9)
Historical documents depict that Tirhakah was born in 708 B.C.E., and at the age of 7, unable to wield an army against Sennacherib, was also in co-regency, with his brother, Shabataka (700 – 684 B.C.E.), in 690 B.C.E. and reigned alone from 684 to 664 B.C.E. What we do know is that Hezekiah died in 686 B.C.E. and Sennacherib was assassinated in 681 B.C.E., so Sennacherib’s confrontation with Hezekiah was sometime between 690 to 686 B.C.E.
What is known is that Hezekiah, between 701 and 690 B.C.E., spent extensive preparations to fortify the city of Jerusalem (2 Chronicles 32:2-6) awaiting the final onslaught, and during this time the famous Hezekiah tunnel was made in which his men bored a 1777 foot tunnel from the well of Gihon in the Kidron Valley to a lower pool inside Jerusalem. (2 Chronicles 32:4,30, 2 Kings 20:20), giving Jerusalem a continuous supply of water even during a siege to this present day. This was documented on an inscription found in the tunnel in 1880, now residing in the Archeological Museum at Istanbul. Which states,
Archeological Museum at Istanbul - “The tunnel was bored. And this was the manner in which it was cut. While (the workmen were) still (lifting up) axes, each toward his neighbor, and while three cubits remained to be cut through, (there was heard) the voice one calling the other, tunnel was bored, the stonecutters, struck, each to meet his fellow, ax against ax; and the water flowed from the spring to the pool for 1,200 cubits, and the height of the rock above the heads of the stonecutters was 100 cubits.”
Contrary to modern chronology, Sennacherib did not bring his forces to the walls of Jerusalem on 701 B.C.E., but more than likely about 684 B.C.E. On that day the mighty forces of Sennacherib, the king of Assyria were annihilated by a mighty bolide, “Blast”, the electrical bolt or flue of millions of volts of electricity that was heard across the land. It incinerated the entire military force of 185,000 warriors, who were camped outside the walls of Jerusalem. The army, lying with the ground strewn with the iron helmets, iron coats of mail, iron javelins, and iron leg armor, became a vast grounding site for a cosmic electrical bolide.
The Cataclysmic Role of a Binary Dark Star uncloaking Cosmic Wars between Satan and the Messiah
As the warning signs of G-d’s judgment are beginning to encircle each of us, we remind ourselves of the “blast” outside the walls of Jerusalem when 185,000 Assyrian soldiers were preparing for the final destruction of Jerusalem. And then, on an evening in 702 BCE, a billions volt flume of electromagnetic energy blasted from the heavens leaving all of their bodies as piles of ashes. Only their metal helmets, coats-of-arms, spears, swords, and lances that acted as a vast metallic ground, were found scorched and seared but a testimony of the power of G-d’s judgment. - See more at: biblesearchers.typepad.com/destination-yisrael/messiah-millennial-state-of-israel/page/33/#sthash.JeQvphaC.dpuf
Gill Broussard believes that the passing of the angel could have been the passing of planet Nibiru.
In 747 BC and 687 BC Mars came so close that there was a repetition of the earlier catastrophes. Of the second series of catastrophes, the records are much better preserved, for this was the era of the Hebrew prophets.
Those inspired ancients were first-rate astronomers as well as poets and seers; they could and did accurately predict two upheavals of their time. Amos was put to death for his gloomy forecasts, but the catastrophe arrived on time; King Uzziah was at the altar when a great breach was torn in Solomons Temple by the quaking of the earth. This calamity was only a prelude. The day thick with night foreseen by Isaiah came upon the land; the earth, as the Bible reports it, utterly broken down.
And then the long Biblical drama of the army of Sennacherib, enemy of Israel. It is described most laconically in the Book of Kings.
And it came to pass that night, that the Angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred fourscore and five thousand; and when they arose early in the morning, behold they were all dead corpses. The identical story is repeated in the Book of Chronicles, the Talmud, and other ancient sources.
Obviously, the simultaneous death of tens of thousands of warriors could not be due to a plague; this spectral massacre happened overnight. The Bible says: A blast fell from the sky on the camp of Sennacherib. The death of those enemy hosts of men is explained in the Talmud as caused by gaseous masses, penetrating the atmosphere, which could, in certain areas, asphyxiate all breath.
Again, such a phenomenon would not be localized, and it was not; the fire in the sky and the gases falling to the earth are also reported in the Bamboo Books of China, in Mayan inscriptions, and in records in other parts of the world.
On the evening before the destruction of the army, according to the Bible, the shadow of the sun returned 10 degrees. In China and elsewhere the same reports occur. They agree that the date was March 23, 687 BC. Month 1, Day 6 (Friday) Day 4 of month 1. http://s8int.com/page35.html
