PART III

Hymns foretelling Media & Legal Attacks 'in a Wilderness'

Parts III – VII now contain the Hymns themselves from which the Hymn Highlights were taken. The Hymns have been put in paragraph form for ease of reading.

The first lines of this Hymn below describe physical details of our wilderness home here where Father brought us, cryptically describing the appearing of the Anointing of Christ in the Final Prophet as 'the bud of the shoot of holiness' – 'a shoot of the everlasting Plant.' The Hymn goes on to cryptically foretell the commencement of the flood of attacks against the Final Prophet on all fronts – media, former 'members of my Covenant,' and the "legal" system, as 'tumultuous rivers' who 'despised' and 'cast their slime' upon 'the bud of the shoot of holiness' who appeared in the Final Prophet.

Hymn 18 (formerly 14)

Géza Vermes, translator

I thank Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast placed me beside a fountain of streams in an arid land, and close to a spring of waters in a dry land, and beside a watered garden in a wilderness.

For Thou didst set a plantation of cypress, pine, and cedar for Thy glory, trees of life beside a mysterious fountain hidden among the trees by the water, and they put out a shoot of the everlasting Plant. …

Its stem was trodden by all who passed on the way and its branches by all the birds. … And all the trees by the water rose above it …

And the bud of the shoot of holiness of the Plant of truth was hidden and was not esteemed; and being unperceived, its mystery was sealed. …

No man shall … drink the waters of holiness … who seeing has not discerned, and considering has not believed in the fountain of life, who has turned his hand against the everlasting bud.

And I was despised by tumultuous rivers for they cast up their slime upon me. …

'Thou hast placed me close to a spring of waters in a wilderness' Father placed our little encampment of RVs close to this spring in a wilderness, just as this Hymn foretold. Shortly after our arrival in this arid and dry land we discovered this literal, physical spring of waters quietly bubbling up through the water in the "wash" {arroyo} that had been recently filled by the spring rains.

'Thou didst set trees of life beside a mysterious fountain hidden among the trees by the water' Those of us who were with the Final Prophet are cryptically described here as 'trees of life' that Father set here beside him. He was among the trees – among us – and the mysterious fountain – the Anointing of Christ – was hidden within him and sprang up within him. It is the same everlasting spring of living waters that sprang up from within Yeshua (Jesus): It was the Spirit of the Son of God within Yeshua – the Anointing of Christ – that Yeshua promised to all who believe in him. 4

'And they put out a shoot of the everlasting Plant' We, the trees of life, put out a shoot of the everlasting Plant. This is the same event which Revelation described in other imagery as "the woman…which brought forth a man Child." Rev. 12:4-5 And this is the same event which is described in Jeremiah, "And their prince will be one of them, and their ruler will come from the midst of them." Jer. 30:21 AMPC The word "midst" has a dual meaning in this verse: it means 'from among a number of persons,' and also 'inner part.' These Scripture verses and Scroll line were foretelling the reality which we experienced here: that our "Ruler," our "Prince," our Champion of redemption, arose not only from "among" those of us whom Father had gathered together here – externally, in the person of the Final Prophet, but our Ruler began arising internally, too, from within our "inner part."

'Its stem was trodden' Theodor Gaster's footnote says, "Literally, 'Its stock (stump) is trampled by wayfarers'. These lines may also be understood in the sense that the holy tree is now being ravaged and despoiled by birds and beasts (i.e., by the impious), and its roots are being carelessly trampled." Theodor Gaster, The Dead Sea Scriptures in English, pg.

'all the treesrose above it' All of the trees that were not 'trees of life' considered themselves superior; they "esteemed him not." Isa. 53:3 Just as the Spirit of Messiah was not esteemed in the human person of Yeshua (Jesus) during His first fulfillment of Isaiah 53, so this Hymn foretold that the Spirit of Messiah would not be esteemed in its second prophetic fulfillment, either, in the human person of Michael Travesser aka Wayne Bent.

'The bud of the shoot of holiness of the Plant of truth was hidden and was not esteemed' The Plant of truth – also described further down in this Hymn as the Plant of heaven – was the Spirit of Christ, the Messiah, the "Seed of David" hidden within the Final Prophet. And the words 'the bud of the shoot of holiness' were a cryptic description of the beginning of the appearing of the Spirit of Christ in Wayne, the human being 'anointed by the Spirit' – 'the anointed leader,' 'the herald,' whom the Melchizedek Texts had foretold. He was 'the messenger' announcing the beginning of the appearing of the Shoot of holiness in all of God's people in the last days. This coming or appearing of the Spirit of Messiah in His people had been promised in the Scriptures and in the Dead Sea Scrolls. This was the Actual Fulfillment of the Scripture, "A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit." Isa. 11:1

'No man shall drink the waters of holiness who seeing has not discerned, and considering has not believed in the fountain of life, who turned his hand against the everlasting bud' Just as soon as 'the everlasting bud' was starting to begin to appear in Wayne, those who beheld it but who were not discerning what it actually was – i.e. the Spirit of Christ (Messiah) beginning to appear again in a human being as He had appeared the first time in the human being, Yeshua (Jesus) – turned their hand against it. That is, they turned their hand against Christ. They came against the Spirit of the Anointing appearing in a human being. That, in its most fundamental essence, is the spirit of anti-Christ – those who are against Christ. They considered it, the Holy Spirit brought the thought across their minds that they were seeing 'the fountain of life,' but they did 'not believe' that thought. In the symbolism of 'the everlasting bud' is conveyed the meaning that the appearing of the Anointing in a human being in this final generation was still somewhat nascent – in its infancy, as it were, when they turned against it.

Theodor Gaster translated the preceding lines in this way:

… This one, which puts forth the shoot of Holiness upon the stock of Truth, keeps its secret hidden, unknown, sealed and unsuspected.

Moreover, O God, Thou hast hedged in its fruit … by a flaming sword turning this way and that; that the wicked may not drink from the Fountain of Life nor, like those evergreens, imbibe the waters of Holiness; that he never may bring his fruit to blossom through the showers of heaven, because, though indeed he has seen it without recognizing it, he has never sensed what it was. Though he has had thoughts about it, he has never believed in the Fountain of Life, but, instead, keeps laying violent hands on what is really a flower unfading. Hymn 14, translated by Theodor Gaster, Lit. footnote translations used

'This one, which puts forth the shoot of Holinesskeeps its secret hidden, unknown, sealed and unsuspected' This 'One' was the Spirit of the Son of God hidden within Wayne Who put forth the Shoot of Holiness upon the stock of Truth – His Father's Word and Presence; while the Son Himself was sealed within Wayne – the divine was unsuspected in a human body, the Messiah unknown.

'The wicked may not drink from the Fountain of Life' The wicked are those who may be religious but who do not sense the hidden One Who put forth the shoot of Holiness upon the stock of Truth, and they come against him. They unknowingly live out the spirit of "that Wicked" – that spirit that is against (anti) Christ. 2 Thess. 2:8 It is the spirit that says Christ has not come in the flesh of the Final Prophet, or anyone else who is testifying that the Spirit of Christ has come in them. 1 John 4:3; 2 John 7 The human self (ego) does not have the capacity to see the realities of the kingdom of heaven. It will not believe any evidence beginning to be given, but immediately cuts off its entrance into its mind. At the very outset of any intimation of divine evidence or truth that begins to make it uncomfortable, or that does not fit its own peculiar religious paradigm, it immediately chooses not to believe and closes its mind to it. And, equally, as this Hymn brings out, the powers of heaven do not allow the fallen human ego into its mysteries, either. 1 Cor. 2:9-14; Luke 8:10; Matt. 13:13-14; Isa. 6:1-12; 1 John 2:14

'And I was despised by tumultuous rivers for they cast up their slime upon me' We witnessed the first tumultuous river despising the Final Prophet and Teacher of Righteousness when Channel 4 KOB TV showed up, uninvited, in the land in 2002 to interview him, and then cast their slime upon him when they gave their "news" report. They put their spin on the truths he had shared with them and came against him with their "fake news." Many more despising, tumultuous rivers were to follow, including the UK's so-called documentary "End of the World Cult," and National Geographic's two televised pogroms against us, "Inside A Cult," and "Messiah on Trial."

This slime casting and despising of the Final Prophet was foretold in other places in the Dead Sea Scrolls as well. The following words in 4Q541, fragment 9, describe these despising, tumultuous rivers in very plain words. The Actual Fulfillment of every detail of this Dead Sea Scripture fragment in the life-experience of the Final Prophet is self-evident to those of us that Father anointed to be with him from the beginning of his anointed mission:

… his Wisdom will be great. He will make atonement for all the children of his generation. He will be sent to all the sons of his people. His word shall be as the word of Heaven and his teaching shall be according to the will of God. His eternal sun shall shine brilliantly, and his fire shall be kindled to all the ends of the earth. Upon the darkness it will shine. Then the darkness will pass away from the earth and the deep darkness from the dry land. They will speak many words against him. There will be many lies. They will invent stories about him. They will say shameful things about himutter everything dishonorable against him. He will overthrow his evil generation and there will be great wrath. When he arises there will be lying and violence, and the people will wander astray in his days and be confounded. 4Q541, fr. 9; compiled translation: translated by Robert H. Eisenman and Michael Owen Wise, The Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered, and by Géza Vermes, The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English

God's secret plan in the state's attack of the Final Prophet

The next Hymn describes the year 2008, after the ending of our first seven-year Covenant from 2000-2007. The year 2008 was the year that Father said, in essence, to the Final Prophet, "Stay with Me one more year." And what Father didn't say, but meant was, "'Stay with Me one more year' while I get your "legal" case going – in preparation for the second seven-year Covenant in which you are to be the 'covenant sacrifice' of Messiah while 'confirming' that 'Covenant with many for one week' from prison."

The first three lines of the Hymn below describe the intended physical taking of the Final Prophet's life that Father preempted. This was at the very time that the "legal" investigation of him was starting up with CYFD in the state's determined efforts to initiate a court case against him.

Hymn 7 (formerly Hymn 3)

Géza Vermes, translator

I thank Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast placed my soul in the bundle of the living, and hast hedged me about against all the snares of the Pit.

Violent men have sought after my life because I have clung to Thy Covenant.

For they, an assembly of deceit, and a horde of Belial, know not that my stand is maintained by Thee, and that in Thy mercy Thou wilt save my soul since my steps proceed from Thee.

From Thee it is that they assail my life, that Thou may be glorified by the judgement of the wicked and manifest Thy might through me in the presence of the sons of men; for it is by Thy mercy that I stand.

'Thou hast placed my soul in the bundle of the living' Theodor Gaster's footnote says, "The word rendered 'bundle' can also mean 'pouch, wallet', and the poet evidently understood the sentence—as did several medieval Jewish commentators—to imply that God will keep the faithful, like a treasure in a wallet, safe from Death." This, God has fulfilled for the Final Prophet – His 'treasure.'

'Violent men have sought after my life' We learned, after the fact, about one of those who sought after the Final Prophet's life. This man was a former 'member of his Covenant' who was no longer living in the land. He became so inflamed over a lie he had heard about him that he was driving out to the land to kill him, when Father blew up his engine and he was unable to carry out his plan. Father kept His faithful one, 'like a treasure in His wallet, safe from Death.'

'An assembly of deceit and horde of Belial know not that my stand is maintained by Thee' If ever there was an assembly of deceit it was all those who were assembled against Wayne Bent in his trial. But they knew not that his stand was maintained by Father, since all of Wayne's steps – in every single event he had carried out in the land – had 'proceeded from Father.'

'From Thee it is that they assail my life' It was an act of Father Himself, by which He intentionally caused the state to initiate "legal" action against the final Teacher of Righteousness. Father brought them against the Spirit of Messiah in the human body of the Final Prophet, so that God would be glorified by the perfection of His way of judgment being manifested. For the way by which they passed judgment on His Messiah in human flesh, was the way by which they passed their own judgment on themselves.

And I said, Mighty men have pitched their camps against me, and have encompassed me with all their weapons of war.

They have let fly arrows against which there is no cure, and the flame of their javelins is like a consuming fire among trees.

The clamor of their shouting is like the bellowing of many waters, like a storm of destruction devouring a multitude of men; as their waves rear up,

Naught and Vanity spout upward to the stars. But although my heart melted like water, my soul held fast to Thy Covenant, and the net which they spread for me has taken their own foot; they have themselves fallen into the snares which they laid for my life.

But my foot remains upon level ground; Apart from their assembly I will bless Thy Name.

'Mighty menhave encompassed me with all their weapons of war' Those weapons were all of the lying "news" stories they manufactured, their propaganda of "child molestation, controlling cult leader," etc. – their "fake news" that was discharged through the national and international "news" media, as well as the talk shows. Those weapons of war included also the grand jury's illegal indictment, and the false accusation of "criminal sexual contact of a minor" by the district attorney's office.

'They have let arrows fly against which there is no cure' Once those lying, inflammatory weapons of "fake news" went out, they were truly like these Hymn lines described, 'a consuming fire … like a storm of destruction devouring a multitude of people.'

'My soul held fast to Thy Covenant' Father's Covenant with the Final Prophet is how he held fast to Father, and how Father held fast to him. This is what caused his foot to remain upon level ground during the intense pressure of his national and international trial by media, his court trial when the accusations of the whole world came against him, his imprisonment, and his malignant cancer and extreme sickness in prison. Michael shared with me from prison,

These hard things that I have to go through – the cancer, and some of the very worst neighbors you could possibly get – are part of the covenant that I'm supposed to confirm: that in Christ, the sinner can bear it all. See, that's my responsibilityto bear everything that Father gives me, and not try to get out of it. I just bear where He puts me. In other words, what's the covenant for, if it doesn't do anything – and also, when it's not in my human nature to bear it. That's not my human nature, nor Jesus' human nature, either. On the cross he was strongly tempted to kill everybody and go back home. But he bore it. He bore it. And it's like, somehow what I've experienced in "confirming the covenant" is going to be the keeping power of those who believe my testimony during the collapse. It's so easy for people to lose it and blow off when they've finally had enough. And when I've had enough, I just have to keep it: I bear it, I just take it, – whatever it is. I bear it, rather than lose it – my temper. Your temper is your abiding, and when you lose your temper you lose your abiding. When people lose it, they usually lose their problem because the devil won, so the devil backs off then. But it's really Michael in me bearing it, that's for sure. Wayne wouldn't. Wayne would have a fit. Michael, excerpt from prison phone call, July 30, 2015, one day before his cancer surgery

'the net which they spread for me has taken their own foot' Now, in 2018, those who spread the net have themselves fallen into the snares which they laid for the life of the Final Prophet. By the universal law of cause and effect, they receive the very things that they planned for and did to him. They falsely accused him and condemned him, and now through their "fake news" they are being falsely accused and condemned by each other.

'But my foot remains upon level ground; Apart from their assembly I will bless Thy Name' Nothing that the world did or said could overthrow the Final Prophet and Teacher of Righteousness. He had excruciatingly hard issues to bear in prison, but nothing could separate him from the Spirit of the Messiah within him. Now, in 2018, two years after his release from prison and the publication of his testimony in "The Little Book" three days later, it has been abundantly proven just how securely his 'foot remains upon level ground.'
